tlon which compellod the resignation of tho
Into Ministry. The view of the Hungarian
Constitution taken by Dr. WrtmnLit and
his colleagues wa materially different
from that held by tho IIouso ot Magnates,
and, temporarily at Icait, sanctioned by
Fhancli Joseph. ' Tliat vlow was substan
tially Identical with the conception of tho
Enallsh Constitution mlvocated by Eart
OnitT In 1MJ, namely, thot the people's rep
resentatives formed the rontrolllnrrelomont
of theLeglslature.and that when they passed
a bill the socond time It was thnduty of the
sovereign to coorco tho House of Lords Into
accopttng It, by creating, or threatening to
create, a sufQciont number ot now peers
to surmount tho opposition. Precisely
analogous to tho situation nt Westminster
In 183 J Is that which now exists at Buda
pest. Tho IIouso ot Magnates, having
thrown out the Civil Marriage, bill, tho Lib
eral Cablnot resolvod to Introduce that
measure again in tbo House of Iteprcsonta
tles, and requested the King to subject
the upper House to tho same coorclvodis
clpllneurgod by Earl Oret upon William
IV. Tho first reply ot FnANCts Josnnt was
that he would appoint three life members of
tho IIouso of MsgnatOH, but must decline
to locroaso tho numbor of hereditary legis
lators. That ho has now receded from that
position scorns evident, for otherwise Dr.
WcKrnLE and Herr ton Hzilaoti would
havo no inotlvo tor'returntug to ofllce.
Assuming that tho King ot Hungary
has agrcod to enforce tho will ot the peo
ple's representatives upon tho nobility nnd
ecclesiastical dignitaries, whoso stronghold
has been tho IIouso ot Magnates, wo must
recognize that this civil mnrrlago Incident
has brought about tho most important vic
tory arhlevcd by Iluncarlan Liberalism
slnoo the Inauguration ot tho dual regime.
Now for tho first tlmo tho bulk of tho Mag
yar nationality may bo said to bo entorlng
on tho full oojormont of Its Inhnrltanco.
The compulsory passago of tho Civil Mar
riage bill will bo but the first wnvn of a
flood of progressiva legislation, which has
hitherto encountorod an Insupcrablo barrier
ln the IIouso of Magnates. It has long been
pointed out by careful obsorvors at liuda
pest that Magyar publla opinion was Im
mensely in advance ot tlio Institutions.
Now, however, that Dr. Wekerli'.'s low of
tho Hungarian Constitution seoms certain
to bo adopted, nothing In tho Institutions
will avail to check tho workings of tho
This victory of Liberalism ln Hungary
must needs havo a profound effect upon tho
other half ot tho omplro, and should power
fully stimulate tho demand for that sweep
ing reform ot the franchise which Count von
Taafc tried ln vain to effect. Few persons
on tblssldoot tho Atlantic undcrntand how
wldoly removed from manhooj suffrage are
the peoples represented ln tho Vienna
Jlolchsrnth. It Is to tho credit of Fkancir
Josmi that ho favored Count von Taafe's
project of roform, whloh was beaten ln tho
lteichsrath itself by tho delegates ot tho
landod proprietors and of tho rich burgher
class. Hut tbo success at Budapest ot n
ruovemont essentially domocratlo will ex
cite at Vienna an outburst of feeling on Im
haltof tho disfranchised massos which tho
prcsont reactionary Ministry will bo unable
long to resist.
Our esteemed contemporary, tho Augusta
Chronicle, essays to answer tho questlou
we asked tho othor day, "On what au
thority does Senator Waur offer tho in
como tax as a part of our national revenue
system?" Tho answer Is. "Ho offers it as
a representative of tho people, becauso It la
just, equitable, and right." But this an
swer doesn't cover tho case. Mr. Walsh. Is
a representative ot the Democracy, and ho
Is supposed to represent Its vlows. Tho
extracts which tho Chronicle prints from bis
defence ot tho Income tax also throw no
light upon his authority for advocating an
Income tax. Thoso extracts also showgreat
uutnmlllarity on tho authui's part with tho
Vest amendments, or he would notspetkot
a tax on small Investors and savors as being
for tho bonellt ot " tho tolling millions."
When ho speaks of tholncomo tax as "on
abeoluto noceaslty " bo seems to forget or
not to know tho fact that the estimates
ot rovenuo under the amendod Tariff bill
and tho Income Tax bill show a surplus
ot from $X),000,000 and upwt.d over the.
Treasury estimates of expenditures. But
whatever may be tho value ot this de
fonce of tho Incomo tax, there Is nothing
in that defence that answers our question.
Mr. Walsh'h private opinion as to what Is
Just, equitable, and right cannot be tut
coptod as sufficient Democratic authority.
It Is not what anyone Democrat thinks or
believes, but the thought or boliet ot the
wholo party as oppressed In tho national
platform that forms tho standard according
to which measures are to bo judged osDom
ocratlcornot. NotMr. Valbh, nor Georgia,
nor any man or btato, but the whole De
mocracy, governed by the majority of tho
Democracy in tho National Democratic
Convention, tho highest court of Democratic
record nnd appeal, sets tho standard. The
ChronfWa tiles to show that tho platform Is
an elastic concern :
-Ten in will bardly claim Ibat laflalallon by Coa
graaalato ba candaad to tbo faw laadlot mauuroa
asaclOeilly roeamiMndad In Iba parly platform, Ibo
faottoatapropoiad maaauro waa not maallouaj In

coanaadlomaaauraa apaotdoally raaoumaudadla tbo
platform, tbo rrotra aa wblab la ba'ay mada la Ibat at
ractlon la not Tary oibilaratlnr "
This amounts. In effect, to saying that bo
cause Congress has not passed such meas
ures aa the Democratlo party promised,
therefore Congress Is justified In passing
measures that sorao other party promised.
Tho Populists believe that it Is just, equita
ble, and right for the Government to run
and operate railroads and telegraph and
telephone lines. Mr. Walsh has exactly as
good au authority and rljht to demand that
tho Democratic powor be used to establish
Government ownership ot tho means ot
transportation and communication as ha
has to advocate the income tax. The Dem
ocratic party In past years has distinctly
oppoaed the Income tax. So far as tho
country knew, that party was opposed to
such a tax in 183-2. So tar as the country
knew, the Populists and their allies, tho
Social Labor party, wero the only parties
in favor of that tax. The taxation which the
Democratlo paity proposed was In the form
of a tariff for reteuuo only. It Is unreason
able to say that the proposition to revive a
war tax. to recur to direct taxation, ' does
not contravene tho platform." Such a prop
osition is an Incongruous and a surprising
addition to the economlo policy of that plat
form. It not only contravenes that part ot
the platform, but it makes nonseuso of the
talk in the platform about "individual lib
erty," the " tendency to contrallze all power
at the Federal Capital," and the entire his
tory of the Democratlo party.
The one great question remains unan
swered. It I evident that Mr. Walsh's per
sonal belief and that of his friends in Georgia
measure, notmnUoBd In the national
DimocraUc pUULm, bo, adoptod or even
discussed by the national Democrauy. not
voted for nt the polls In IS31. Support ot
any or all of tho other measures of Omaha
or Ocala could bo dofended In the same
way that Mr. WALnn's friends defend hi
advocacy ot tho incomo tax.

This is all curious and Interesting, but not
particularly Important. At tho time when
Senator Voouiiels deli, ored himself of thoso
high old protectionist sentiments thero
wero protectionist Democrats, and revenue
Democrats, and tree trado Democrats: nnd
opinions concerning protection cr free trado
were not a tost ot Democracy. Slnco then
tho Domocratlo party has declared, through
Its reprcsontatUo assembly, that n funda
mental nrtlclo ot tho Domocratlo creed Is
tho prlnclplo that tbo Government has no
constitutional power to levy duties ln ordor
to foster and encourage or protoct American
Industries. North or South, East or Wost,
or tor any other purposo than for revouue
only. That wipes out Mr. VoonriErs's

The Way to Get Pearl Klver Harbor.
The eagerness shown nt Washington to
got practical possession of Pearl Rlvor Har
bor contrasts gieatly with the repugnance
manifested for obtaining all Hawaii. Tho
report of Lieut. Wood to Admiral Walker
sets forth that tho entranco to the harbor
is obstructed by a sand spit, which might bo
removed by six months' labor, at a coat of
$300,000. W.ithln six months, howover. tho
reciprocity treaty with Hawaii, which con
tains, lu Articlo II., tho grant ot the harbor,
will have expired, although Its stipulations
will lost a year longer, nnd still further, un
less notice Is Uien given by eithor party ot
B desire to termlnato it.
Tho suggestion has been made that tbo
grant ot the harbor Is perpetual, and is not
coterminous with the treaty. As to that, wo
ha"o tbo declaration ot Mr. Batard, mado
seven years ngo to tho Hawaiian Minister,
that he did not bo regard it; and he urged
the ratification ot tho treaty by Hawaii,
saying that "tho President desires" It, und
that ho could seo no ground whatever for
apprehending that the grant would last
longer than tho treaty. Neither Mr. Bat.uii
nor Mr. Cleveland, of course, could nfllx
to the treaty any other interpretation than
tho document Itself warranted; yet It would
bo strango to find outlays now mado on
Pearl Harbor, from an executive fund con
trolled by Mr, Clkvxlano, on the asiump
tlon that the vlows advanced by Mr. Bayaud
seven years ago were all wrong.
It Hawaii wero admitted to the Unlnn the
proposed expenditure on Pearl Harbor
would not bo needed, since wo should have
a suQldent port already avallablo at Hono
lulu. And thero Is good reason to. believe
that In a very few yoars Hawaii will be ours.

WisnisoTay, June 11. Llsut. Ackerman of
tho Bureau ot Ordnance continued hit state
ment relative to hit Investigation ot ths
alleged armor plats frauds before the Hours
Naval Committee to-day. Mr. Money asked
what per cent, of pi itc had been rejee'ed.
Lieut. Ackermsn replied that up lo October
latt about TUO plates had been tubniltted fer
acccrlanco Ot th t number about fifty wero
rejee'od. h'omeot thetn failed to come up to
th physical requirements; others had turfaco
defects, crnckt, and blow holct. He was
unnblo totay how many plates thn company
had turned out and not submitted tor accept
nnce. Thli, however, had 1-eon 111 case with
n large humter of platet. During the begin
nlnsof the work, when ths men and machinery
were being broken In, th company had to re
cast a large number nf plntct,
Mr. Curamlngs called Lieut, Ackerman't at
tention to tha testimony of n workmen to the
elTect that tevnrnl pistes hail been water
hardened, and asked him what ho kiiew about
It, The witness tald he hail heard tho allega
tion!, hut could not my whether they were
true. Theproce-s. hotrevor, wot against the
regulations. It was difficult to tar what effect
this process had upon those plates: It might
have Improved them and It might hav Injured
them. One of these plates wat In ths conning
tower of th New York.
Mr. Curamlngs also called atten Inn to the
testimony of a workman that he bad obtained
the Oovernrernt stamp from I lent. Wllner, Iho
Inspector. Thi man tald that after his day's
work U linor would ait around, play cards nnd
drink, nnd get very rnrelce. On ono mvtslon
be had obtained the alamo from Wllner'
l.lciit. Ackermsn tald that the Hoard had In
qulrod Into this matter, but could net prore
th. tlataments. 'i'lie nan who m.icl" them
Wiintet tit withdraw them, buttlmlloatd would
nut allow him to do to. From what tho Board
could levrn they were hearsay.

Ackermnn sit t that the allldavlt wa written

nurrowed down ton very email matter. The
HurM reporter had read a much stronger
cat for him than he could lupport,
I.Ieut. Ackermsn spoke of the plugging of
the blow holes In the trmorof thn Tenor and
his investigation Into th matter. He went to
the Nsvvlork Navy lard and ev.Ainlne.il the
Plates before they were placet on thn vessel.
He did not examine Into their depth, as lianos
elmplv to examine tho Plates nnd establish
th fact that they had imen Plugged. 11 could
not say how aerlout they were, but ho con

If they were not tho company would not have
taken the troublo to p ug thorn.
Lieut. Ackorman specified the platen nn the
Montvrey In which the lnforni-ra claimed
ther were blowholes. andgavnthelr position

Various charget of fraud bad been made In

had also apeclfled. hy number, four addl

there would hav been a record of them, and

ittolying to questions br Mr. Cummin as.
Lieut. Ackermsn said tbat from hit Investiga
tion lie, wna eatisfled that plates selected for
ballistic tetts had boon secrotly re-treated, and
that test specimens taken from platet for
phrtlcal test had been rs-trtated. He could
not aay positively that epeolment telected for
physical teat had been cut from one plate and
submitted to the Inspector to represent a dif
ferent one No Jioiltivn evidence waa given
on thla point. Ha did not think that fall
templett were palmed off on the Inspector! In
the testing of bolls, nn.l he did nut believ
that Inferior bolts had been paa-ed by the In
spector. Home boltt that had not been prop
erly treated might have been paased. but there
was no positive evidence nn tills point All
tliat tho Board had was the affidavits cf Brown
and Sill. It would be dlfilcult almost impm
elble, to verify their statement, a no imlta
war apccially speclfl.d. Ua waa satisfied
that tho teatlng manhin had boen manipu
lated to mislead the inspector.
Mr. Cummins asked him if h was not tat
ltfled that thn fraud! had been practlted by
nrdor nf Superintendent Schwab. II replied
that he was, and h qualified It by saying that
he could not atats that t-chwab had given
such an order: he was too threwd to do to:
but he waa satisfied tliat the Irregularltfei
were prartlted under richwab'a Influence.
There had been nothing to ahnw that tli pro-
frleturs nt the works had anything to do with
