President Cleveland stick to bis
text, that "pnb'ic office 1b a publia
trust," and bis abrupt! terminated bis
collision and is aiain difcharg ng the
duties with which be was intrusted
by the American people. He bas faith
fully adhered to his pledgee, and bis
administration will be indorsed y the
American people. President Cleve
land's personal career lias rounded out
to completeness. He is a straight
forward, conscientious man, and with
him duty is the pole tttr tint directs
ills footsteps. His parly life was beset
ly grave responsibilities, for ba t n
countered hardships, triumphed over
them all, and developed an Intellect
ual strength until he furnishes a
plend d example and a model for his
countrymen. It bas been well said of
him that there "Ib nothing more
touching than hi mention of his past
and his reference t9 his sainted mother
in the letter written to a member of
his family the night of his elec
tion to ba Governor of New
York. Again, when there came
to him, as the Just reward of fidelity
and character in the discharge of pub
lic tniBts, the h'ghest earthly dignity,
and taking the great oath of the 1 'resi
dency be sealed it by kissing the worn
Bible given to him by his mother in
bis boyhood, there was a revelation of
the spirit that has gusrded snd guided
his life which at once brought bim
very near to all good heart)." An
able and incorruptible ailminls'ration
was expected of such a man and the
"country bas not been disappointed.
Tba people see In Mr. Cleveland a sin
cere State sroan, struggling lo do right,
and they will sustain bim.
THE PEOPLE DINVaTlHFIKD.
Tba two great political parties of the
United Elate met in National Con
ventirn two yeirs sgn and united in
the declaration and pledge to tha peo
ple that the existing tariff should be
revised and the revenues reduced.
Have these pledges been redeemed?
The Republicans have utterly falsified
their plighted faith by refining to en
tertain any measures modifying the
tariff laws. They have the power to
JalflU their pledges, as there are more
than : enough Democrats ready and
anxious to aid in tariff reform. The
Democrats have done little better,
aa they have proposed tariff revision
and reform. There Is much discon
tent and unrest among tha people.
Both parties have protested tUelr
solemn, promises to the country, and
honest Republicans as well as Demo
crats will, in Unas of thunder, condemn
and denounce such deceit and down
right treichery. The Democracy of
Maine, which assembled in State. Con
vention ,t Bangor a week Ago and
nominated a candidate for Governor,
. adopted a platform containing the
following resolution, which was unan
Renvlvtd, That unnecessary taxat'on
is unjust fixation; that the present
opprpBaive war tanfi, which produces
nearly $100,000,000 surplus revenue,
is annec's ary and therefore unjust ;
and that, iiu'inuch as the two great
po'itical patties of the country in
their national platforms have p'edged
themselves o to modify it that it will
produce no more revenue than unv
ws needed for tha neceeeary expend"
itureo( government ecmomicalty ad
ministered, we demand tbat this Con
gress, which has devoted six months
of it labors and all its ingenuity to
devising ways and mcms to deplete
the Treasury of its surplus millions,
to the neglect of important legiela'i n
which the country needs and ex
pects, shall, at its present sesMon,
keep fsith with the people and make
the promised reductions.
Democrats you who would basely
And shamefully falsify your pledges to
the people do you hear that? This
resolution expresses the general senti
ment of Djniocrats fiom Maine to
Ca'ifornia and from Ohio to Texas.
No one is disappointed it see the Re
publicans abandon their voluntary
and positive promise to the coun
try, as they hope to profit in fu'ure
elections by continusd tar ill" agitation
and beraase they favor the monopoly
features and the inequalities of the
- present' 'odious tariff. But better
thioga were expected of Democrats,
: -who have won the confidence of the
, people by fidelity to their pledges.
Tha country is tld in the above reso
' lution that there is a surplus revenue
of 1 100,000,000 iu the National Treas
. nry, and instead of lifiiog the burden of
taxation from the people, the prosi t
Congress has devoted six months of
. its ingenuity in devising ways and
means to eqnander thao surplus mill
ions in th 9 Treasury. There w ill be
a terrible reckoning before the people
this fall. Those members of Conines
who have violated their pledges ar3
DlliDg tip a frightful account which
they will bave to settle in November.
It is utterly impossible to correct the
palpab'e, flagrant injustice and iot
qualities of the odions tariff, because
neither party has kfptf.ith withita
pledgrs. The Bepubrcans refuse to
give tha revision they promised. The
Democrats have made two efforts to
reduce the tariff to the revenue
atanifa-d. Let Republicans move as
the Democrats have moved fortiriff
rvition, and sensible, practical reve
nue reform can be acccmpliahed.
Think of the enormities of the pres
ent protective tariff. The number of
persons acgaged in manufacture,
mining and mechanical industries in
180 wis 8.8.17,112. Tha num
ber engiged in minufactnres ex
clusively, about 3,000,000. For
the protection of this ri,0C0,000 of
our population, the present tariff
taxes the entire population of 60,000,
000. Every dollar of the duties col
lected on imports is paid by cos
sumera. The average doty on im
ported gcods is about 42 per cent.,
and the consumer pays this. With
out this duty be could buy the im
ported article 42 per cent, cheaper.
But the government collects from
consumers neirly 1100,000,000 more
than it needs to protect the rich few
mtnu'acturerj at the expente of the
many other industries. In other
words, the government sustains tbe
manufacturing interests of tbe coun
try by collect'ng money it does not
want, And this is the tariff measure
which the Congress of the United
States refuses to revise. Thtra will be
a bowl in other Sutes betides Maine.
THE BUBO Iff POUTK.
The intelligent negroes are begin
ning to revolt against the sentimental
idolatry which bas blindly ruled them
for more than a score of yeirs. The
New York Fneman, edited by T. T.
Fortune, the ablest of all tha Northern
colored leaders, says :
"In Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Ycrk,
New Jersey, and Connecticut we have
enough votes lo turn the scales igaintt
either party; and vet we have not
made any use of this power. Year
after year we have gone to the polls
and voted white men into office men
who would not wipe their feet on us
after election; men who pay no atten
tion to any petition or reqiiaet we may
prefer after the ba'tle is lost or won ;
men who, even in tbe beat of a can
visa, have treired co'ored renresents
tlves and spoke-men as if they wee
mendicants and Ignoramnrcs, aud told
them to their teeth that they gained
nothing by kicking as the marsesof
the colored voters were loyal to the
party. We have been so trea'eJ; we
Iiave been so told; snd we could say
nothing because wa knew the rase
was as stated.
"We are getting tired of protesting
against this treatment, with the mass
es of the race, and even the leaders,
Insensible or indifferent to the matter.
It la an ou'ritre and shame, tbat con
stituting to important a fraction of the
Republican vote ol the r-tales named,
we should be trrated with si much
contempt and indifference by the
party and its leaders with which we
have affiliated. We say it is an out
rage and a shame, and the self-respect

All that has baen done for the ne
gro race by the Republicans has been
inspired by purely selfish, partisan
purposes on the part of the whito Re
publicans, as is demonstrated by the

Bii.kast, Jane 9. Last nights mob
ol Orngmen made an attack upon
the tavern kept by a Catholic named
Dufly. Tbe police were promptly on
the scene, and after a stubborn con
test, during which they need their
carbines, drove the mob away tn dis
order. Tbe rioters reassembled with
increased strength, and again a'tscked
Duffj'e, tbii time overpowering tbe
police and driving them from tbe
place. In tbe first asault Chief of
Police Carr was wounded. He was
carr'ed away, and now lies in
a ciitical condition. When the
Orangemen returned to tbe fight they
were accompanied by a large number
of factory girls, who goaded or shamed
the men on to battle, snd formed a
most dango-OMs element. When the
officers abandoned Duffy's the mob at
once took complete possession of the
tavqtn. It was at once thoroughly
sacked, all tha taps and spigots were
set miming, and everybody was in
vited to help himself according to bis
taste. All tbe barrels of liquor found
i a s'ock were carried into the street,
lifted up bigh and let fall un
til they bioke and liberated
tbelr contents. All the furniture was
carried out, piled in the center of tbe
roadway snd burned in a bonfire to
furnish the rioters with light during
the r debauch. Men, youths and gins
drank until tbey fell helpless in the
gutters, the girls acting with grea'er
fury during the earlier stages of the
orgie than the men. Tbe noise, the
profanity, the disorder were terrib'e.
The mob ended its work here by
firing tbe tavern itself, and it
burned to tbe ground. Then
the s'ronger men, who bad become
infuriated and not overpowered,
ran throng'i the street, pillaging
wherever ih y went, and increising
their following the lurtiier thev pro
ceeded. The ri iters, a'ter a while,
eongreantod around the police station
asd stoned the place until they were

another tavern. The police hastened

mob, left in potsetsion, treated
the tavern as tbey had treated
Duffy's. turned "on all te
taps, broke the full barrels in
the stre-t, made a bonfire of the fur
niture and finally set lire to the build
ing. Tbe police returned, and this
time got the better fjr a time cf the
mob, whofe tanks were depleted by
the S'ores who hid. fallen away in
drunkenness, and extinguished the
flames before they could gain control
of the structure. But tha officer
were unable lo drive the rio'erj from
the loca'ity, and they remained and
dominated it until morning. During
tee rowdyism of the night Mr
G'axls'one and Mr. Parnell
were btth burned in effigy,
and a dummy corpse labeled
"home rule" was cremated. Two men,
named Hart and Maeon, were arres'ed
to-day for the murder of Thos. Galla
gher, who waa ihst dead last night
during the rioting at Lurgan. Ga'la
gher was a well-known local simple
ton. He waved sn Orange rash in the
face of a home-rule moi during an in
cessant fire between that mob and its
Orange enemies. During the riot the
situation at one time became 8) desper
i i that Mr. Mathers, a local Orange
leader, publii ly declared that unlets
the authorities did their duty, be and
a thousand armed Oiangemen would
take charge of tbe town. Mathers
wis on tbe point of carrying oat bis
threat when the military appeared.

men were so badly injured last nigbt

The rioting wis renewed here this
evening and the riot act again read.
The mob increased in s ze and began
throwing stones at the police. Tbe
latter fired, killing four pe-sons, one
of whom we s a barmaid who was look
ing out of a tavern window. Themsb
returned the fire and a brisk fusile.de
was kept up lor twenty minutes. Sol
diers are now patading the streets to
aB:st the police in case of necessity.
The mob drove a force of 150 po ice
men into the barracks and then at
tacked the buildings, firing revolvers
and throwing stones at the doors and
windows. The police fired, killing
five persons. Several Pro' estant cler
gymen tried to disperre the mob, but
their efforts were unavuUing. One of
tbe persons killed was a widow w th
two chi'dren. One hundred and fifty
policemen left Dublin to day to rein

K. Forster's administration as Chief
Secretary for Ireland, and who bad to
leave Ireland on account of tbe
threats of that official to arrett bim
for taking the side of tbe people dur
ing tbe days of the coercion act, said
yesterday, in reference to the home
rule bill: "Chamberlain defeated the
bill, and he defeated it on the pre
tense that he wished to rave the lib
erties of the Uls'er Protestants. As
an Ulaterman royeelf, I may say tbat
I know something about the problem.
I don't remember any otber instance
in history where men bave deliber
ately threatened to fight against the
liberation of their country as the
Orantemip have, except, perhaps, the
Tories in this country during the
Revolut'on. Bot even these Tories
did not claim to be Americans, while
tee Orangeman not only claims to be
an Irishman, bot actually Ireland it
self. Will they fight? Did they fight
du ing tbe Crimean war, when they
boasted they would preserve tbe
crown and beat back tbe Russians,
and, after eat ing for leviea during six
months, could only bring sixty-two
volunteers together? Did they fight
during tbe passage of f-e act disestab
lishing the Pcoteetaot Church in 1870,
when thev boasted tbey would main
tain the Protestant religion and the
liberties of England, and at the same
time kick the Queen's crown into tbe
Boyne? The Orangemen won't fight.
They will loee three more seats in
Ulster after the next general electioo,
which can enly ba won by tbe co
operation of honest PotesUnts with
the Nationalists. After the election
of course the borne rule bill will be
passed with a sweeping majority."

Aberdeen, Mks, June 8. It seems
tbat cur little city bas suspended
everything for a re-t. We had John
RobiosDn's ehow Saturday, which
brought to town tbe usual number of
people, but the major ty of them
stayed on the outside, on account cf
a scarcity of money.
Farmers generally report cropi
good. If anybody tbioks tbat the
negroes are a l dead or gone to K an

there is a show somewhere abou', and
they will mant ti give somebody 25
cents to kick them lor being so foolish,
Judging from tbe present outlook,
things will be lively for tbe man that
goes to Congress from this district.

Chicago, III., June 9. The inquest
on the victims of Monday morning's
fire on Canal street was resumed to
day at the county hospital. There
were few developments that threw
any light on tbe catistropbe. John
Dorkin.wbowas arrested on suspicion,
is a harmless-looking workman, ana
olaims that he left Cnicago at noon
Sunday and went to Jolier, where ha
slept with ano her man, and went to
work Monday. The inquest will be
resumed tc-morrow. Dnrkin will re
main in charge of tbe police, although
there is nothing at all to connect him
with the cr me. Tbe theory most
strongly held is tbat there bas been
bad blood between tbe Germans and
Irish in tbe neighborhood of tbe fire.
Fighting was carried on among tbe
young hoodlums, who, it is thought, .
know something about the cause and
orig n of tbe fire.

in its commercial article sajs: "The
