propose to subaidizo steamship lines to
the groat porta of the world, that is,
to pay such linos a yearly stipend
noarly equal " to the total ot tbe
actual expense of running each a certain
number ot steamships. To justify them
selves, they are going to repeat the now
stale falsehood that England subsidises all
her foreign stoatnship line, and that the
continental nation are following in hor
tracks. But tho Democrat will be forti
fied with facta to meet those spoclousorgu-
monts, and will show that thore is no such
thing known in England as subsidy, in the
American sense of tho term. English "sub'
sidy" is a business rato, fixod by competi

The Hew York Eirniitg Post, on inquiry at
the office of tho treasury ot the United
Kingdom, obtained a statement under date
of Juno 5, 1H89, showing the total cost of
carrying the iorclgn malls. Tho total cost
was 4!iS,7C4, or about $2,o00,000 for
malls carried to all parte of the slobo. For
mail to Europe carried by steamship the
payment waa t-HS.500; to Amorlca, ?ol3,-

postal service ylnlda now a net revenue of
$13,000,000. There la nothing, of course,

the Taxing District Council on Thursday,
by Mew. I'ettit, lUndlo and Kney, and
thry are serious objections. The first and
moat srrious Is that it propoac to prevent

the Constitution of the bute is opposed to.
The next objection I lb it the 1VU Street

population, the 1'iipliir Street Market hav
ing Ucn cloec.L This is decidedly par

is the city should get out of the market
