FRENCH PROTESTS HEEDED?
BOMB CONCESSIONS IN TARIFF RATES
MADE BY THE FINANCE COMMITTEE.
[BT TELTtOKArH TO THE TRtnfNK.)
?Washington, May 14.~-The French protesta
against the restoration of the duties of 1S90 on
brandies, still wines, cordials, etc.. as well as on
certain fine textiles, appear to hax-e had some
weight with the majority of the Fihance Commit?
tee. It is asserted that these protests were rein?
forced to some extent by Senator Wolcott, who,
before his departure for Europe as a member of
the Bimetallic Commission, made strong repre?
sentations to the Finance Committee to the ef?
fect that some concessions of rates on articles in
Which French producers and manufacturers wore
especially interested might make the task of the
Commission In that country easier. However that
may have been, it appears from an inspection of
the schedule of wines and liquors that some conces?
sions have been recommended. On Brandies, cor?
dials, wines etc, UM Dinn'.ey bill imp.?.-? ?1 the
rate? of MM In some cases, nn?3 :n a fev,- c.i?- %
an advance on those ra'es, nn.l the estimated rev?
enue therefrom on th?. basts of last year';; Impor?
tations woul 1 have amounted to J?.K?,400, of which
K.140,000 would hove been derived from still winea
and a^*..?>?5 from bramly At the rates proposed ?
by the Finance Committee, which, as a rule, are
the same as existing rates, the total revenue from
brandies, wines. "MsUtled spirits, cordials, etc.,
would ?mount to only J4.S1S.000 on the basis of last
year'e importations, or $i.ni.ana less than ander
the rates Imposed by the House of Representa?
tives. About $72O.M>0 of this less would be on ac?
count of atlll wine?, $.'?>.?yx? on account of cordials,
absinthe, etc., and $311.ft? on account of brandies
and other distilled ??pirlis.
In t'.ie opinion of the Republican members of
the House It would be better and In every respect
more suitable for the French Government to re?
move tome of the barriers which it has raised
against imports from tho L'nlted States before de?
manding concessions in behalf of French pro?
ductions Imponed Into the I'nited States. Ac?
cording to a litter addressed to President M. Kl;i
ley not long ago by an American citizen who la
engaged in business in Paris much heavier charges
are Imposed on manufactured articles imported
from the United States than on like manufactured
articles Imported from other countries. The writer
of the letter imports machinery and other manu?
factures of Iron and steel, etc., from concerns In
New-York City Buffalo, Cincinnati, Erie, Penn.;
Batile Creek. Mich., end other places. He says:
Tie United States are nearly the sole country
Charged on Ihe French "tariff general," xvhich
mesas 25 p?*r <<nt more than other countries. Be
M i?-,., we are charged a surtax of 8 francs 60 cen
tlmis per 100 kilograms if our goods come by
steamers calling in England before reaching
Fra id?. The consequence is that we have to pay
the fancy freight enarges of ihe French line of
Steamers direct to Havre. It costs almost three
tlm?s more than for poods tuk?n from New-York
to Lngland. 1 hoi c your Administration xvill oblig*?
Franc-? to reduce the tariff in favor of tho United
Sim? s, IS she has done for other countries.
It also appears from a ietter received on Wednes?
day by Chairman Dinj-ley of the Committee on
Wtyi and Meiins from a firm In Portland, Me.,
whl-h is a heavy exporter ot cooperage to "West
Indian ports, that the ?"incrimination against manu?
factur?e of tho United States is quite as harsh and
severe 1n sorr.e ef the French colonies as In Franco
itself. Until within the hast few years tho exports
of ihooks to the West Indies were large, and the
industry furnished profitable employment as well
as n market for thousands of persons in Maine,
"Maryland. XV, s'. Yircir.in, Virginia. Kentucky, Ar?
kansas and reveial otht-r Statt?, where suitable
Umber Is fouivl. ?.ioxvrnor Dln-rley's informant
writes thai the bltslnesa had fallen off 80 per cent
within the b"st ten years, "mainly by reason of the
tariff legialailOli which certain of tho West India
islands, particularly the French Island of Mar
llidTie, iMVe made to the embarrassment of Unltt-d
States shipments.'' Th?- w ritee-a-oinlnues:
T? n years ago our country, which is probably tho
largest manuftcturei and eaporter ?.f rum cooper
age to th?- W? st Indian islands, shipped to Mar?
tinique aloi ?? in the neistr.borhood of half a million
dollars' worth of this espcaisl jtprj^erage. and dur?

Notwithstanding the great embarrassments which
th?' local governments hi the French West Indies,
particularly Martinique, have bren placing against
cur products. x\e should state that only recently
t; ?? Ctmsrtl General, the legislative body of Mar
Unique, h.i- voted a wholly prohibitory duty
against United State? rum ahooka, rateras the pr? --

DEMOCRATS AT ODDS ON THE TARIFF.
MEMBERS OF THE FINANCE C"11M1TTEE CNABI.E
TO AGREE ON A PROGRAMME.
Washington, May II -There Is some difference of
opinion among the Democratic members of the
Senat? Committee or. Finance as to the policy to
be pursued In regard to the Tariff bill. Some of
them, notably Senator Gorman, are of the opinion
that the Democrats should prepare a substitute
bill. They suggest that this substitute should em?
body Democratic Ideas on the tariff, giving uni?
formly lower rates than the Dini*l?-y bib, either as
prepared in the Hou-te or as amended by tho Fi
nan-n Committee. They contend that the Wilson
law la not a clear embodim?.-nt of Democratic tariff
doctrine, not only because it does not produce sttf
Oclent revenue, but because it carrier many features
which were Inserted at the instance of Republi?
can Senators, In order to secure Its passage through
the S? '..ate.
There is, however, strong opposition to this Pro?
gramm.- on the part <<f assay Democratic Senators,
Incluait,g some members of the I'maiiee Committee.
They lake the? position thai the s.-if.st cour-.- f^r
the party la to stand by the Wilson MIL The party,
they Bay, has tnk?-;i the position thai no tariff legis?
lation Is necessary. They ?re willing that amend
tn?n's should be off ?Ted coveting all the schedu es
and It seems ?probable ihm mis coures will be pur
Bue<1. The amendments will provide rates practi?
cally on the line of the Wilson Ihw.

Sir: The article m your Sunday issue entitled

up of the pandemonium now ?xlstln*? in New
York, thnnl:;? to the multiplicity of legsMgBd nola.s
In our streets, belrur most graphK Lilly's arrest
and punishment furnish ground for hope, however,
that the reign of din will not be eternal, and that
even now the first gray dawn-streaks of en era of
quiet may be descried by sharp ?yes appearing
nbox-e the horizon.
But there are worse oTcnders than Rellly. He

loud of Iron produced was only temporary, whereas
there he tho?. an?] estimable people they are. too,
in many Ways? who set noises going which know
no rrssnlIon from early morn till dewy eve. Thl?
that do In the BWSSt mime of charity, and I should
like to SBk The Tribune whether that loveliest of
virtu.?*, In exercising Its traditional prerogative of
covering a multitude of sins, should be permitted
to go so for as absolutely to Infrlnt-e upon a
neighbor's rights and privileges. The sort of char?
ity wh.ro you PMtM) ?II the ?lory and your neigh?
bor has the aaiBlllllS for MB share Bccms to me
not altogether the highest type.
In the rear of my house, ami of fifteen others to >
right and left of It, there existed for many years?
up to last summer?a va?-ant plot of gTOtind, given
up to Innocuous weeds ami tho unpleasant allan
tus tree. Peace reigned there, save when vagrant
Toma and Tabbies met In the moonlight to diseuse
In their own picturesque ?TSg the vital aubjecta of
love, Jealousy an?! war.
All Is changed now, and wo ar?*? sadly lamenting
the banishment of the comparatively harmless
nrd temporary felines; for an excellent person of
philanthropic tendencies, having SSpted the vacant
plot, conceived the notion of establishing on it a
children's playground. It sounds delightful, does
It not? Hut Just come and spend a week or ?O
wtth us during the hot summer weather, occupy
a li' k room, exposed to the southern breeses, and
your Ideas will undergo a complete transformation.
The erstwhile verdant though ?seedy lot would
n.ixv put Basara to the Mush for dust, deesiation
and despair, and in ll?-u ?>f a poor half-dozen cats
we BOW have anywhere frcm two to sex?n hundred
yniing men. women and children howling and
screaming, making life a torture to the whole
neighborhood from 8 o'clock In the morning ui.tll ?3
In the evening.
We, who hive remonstrated ntralnst thlR outra?
geous Invasion of private rights, have been dubbed
cranks, been declared to be without sympathy for
the I ''?r, atifl have been Informed practically that
ehaiity, ?even of the soi-disant, kind. Is permitted
t? override every ooislderatlon of common Jiistl'-e.
Cranks w are not, an?l ?practical sympathy xvlth
out fellow-men of loxver est?t?- we have always
felt; but a man's home Is his home, after all. and
he must be more than moral If h?- can look on In
quiet complacency wlfh bedlam In full operation at
his very ?loors.
Playgrounds are excellent things when a due re
gard for the fitness of things Is evidenced In their
location Hither they attOUtd be established in

h? re ma?le its clientele comes from districts any?
where from a half-mile to a mil?? ?listant.

would not be permitted to exist In any but an
American community, Whore such tilings are man?
aged on the "lalsser-falre" principle, especially
where they affect the Interests of people of moder
If you be very rich, you may perhaps extort your
rights from the powera that be; If you be pror, you

To the Editor of Th? Tril>un?.
Sir: Allow me. as a dauEhter of the American
Philhrllene, I>r. Samuel (irblley Hcwe, to thank
The Tribune warmly for tho artl"lo published in
the Issue Of Sunday, May 2.
It shows such apprec'atlon of my dear father and
Is, In tho main, so correct, that I should be glad
to add to it a few words of comment and explana?
Dr. Howe's character presented an array of qual?
ities that are seldom found united in one man. To
the courage which enabled him to look death un?
flinchingly In the face throughout the long nnl
bloody struggle of the Greek revolution, and which
gained him so many Isurelfl during the fifty years
of his later und p-aceful csreer, he added a wise
prudpneo an?i a power of rapid surxey and instan?
taneous decision which ennbleil him to At wit'?
safety many thing:? that would hive proved fatal
to ono less brave, cool nnd quick. His courage was
equalleil by his tenderness, nnd tho dislike of wit?
nessing suffering was one reason for his abandon?
ing the practice of his profession as B surgeon; yet
he devoted his life to raring for the maimed lambs
of tho human flock. He was, indeed, "eyes to the
blind anil ears to the deaf," while not the least of
his achievements was the founding, in the early
fifties, of tii? first school for idiotic and foehls?
minded children, as he had established, >on"
twenty years earlier, the first Institution for the
blind in this country, beginning In his father's
houne with half a dc?ten little sightless wi.ifs picked
up by the wayside.
Hut probably the moat remarkable feature of his
character wia his extreme modesty and the shy?
ness which he was never able, fully to overcome,
though ho an?! his works were so constantly before
the public Thus ho much disliked to speak before
lirge audiences, nnd would do so only for the sak??
of some cause xvhl?*h he greatly d atr?d to help,
?if himself and his own achievements he rarely
spoke to any one. Indeeil, It was ?lllllcult to get
him to do so, ami It should bo explained that what
ts called his "atttobli.gr.iphy" Is in reality only a
short sketch written for his Intimate friend Horace
Mann, at the earnest request of the latter, In th?;
form of a prix-tit?* letter, ami never published. Slneo
l>r. IIowu's death portions of It haxe been pub?
Th!? extremo reticence with reg-ird to htl own
good works and brave deeds makes It somewhat
difficult to tra?"e out bin career In Its? entirety.

pledges are implied i;i Ihe life and faith of a mer?
chant and a firm P.cnuhhoan If he gave any other
he would certainly be ?ld'eated, and his character la
an assurance thai he woui.l not give others for a
sure guarantee of an *?i."?tlon.
The Citizens I'nion has not yet learned to accept
the Inevitable. l'util it do??s It will never elect
its eaadldatea, It must learn the lesson that
King Canute taught ?o his courtiers, that the lawa
of nature can onlv le amended by the Almighty
Whether we like It or not, an anti-Tammany
candidate fo? Mayor of Greater New-York cannot
be elected unless he can se?*ure the cordial sup?
port of about or.?? hundred and fifty thousand
voters who belong to the regular Republican or?
ganization. Mr. Rllss can have that support with?
out any other pledge than his service a. a. Repub?
lican. Sho il?l he (?p*?n the campaign by abandon?
ing his party and giving new pledges, his party
would nbanilon h:m to Inevitable defeat.
The o'Kloi.k at th? liest is not promising. Roth
the Citizens I'nion and the Republican party ara
unt*easonabta and impracticable, if the i'nion
should nominate a Republican, it would be said
that it wished to forestall the nction of the party
nn?l expected to control the nominee. If the Re?
publicans nominate first, the Vnlonists will object
to the support of the nominee of a political party.
A dlfNCUlty arls?-s out of the fart that such a cun?
dida:? as Mr. Rllss is a novelty. Men have not
lenrned to diagnose and to Judgs of his qualifica?
tions. They are Bccustome?! to deal with men of a
different type. Hero Is a man who has all his llf?.
been a R??nubllciin, wh >se contributions and per?
sonal services have been ??Hen to the party with?
out stint, because he believed th? prosperity of
the Republic depended upon Republican control;
who has acquired wenllh In the honorable career
of a merchant, of which nobody la Jealous; who
l? a bank officer to whom the S<x'iaIIMs do not ob?
ject who has refused to take office until assured
that' bis taking it had h.*,ome a party necessity;
whose private life Is pure and fr??e rrom sll dis
plav nnd whose Indinases extends to relations
which carni't be mentioned here. Such men are
new to politicians; they have no experience Inides.1?
Ina with tbem. When <hey learn how g?*-0d a
