Against American Commerce.
There seems to be a great difference
In oolnloii as to what congress really
Intended In passing Section 22 of the
Tariff act. To the majority of the
American people It was clear that pro
tection In favor of United States ves
sels and npnlnst bringing' foreign Im
portations Into this country by the way
of Canada nnd contiguous countries
was tho spirit, as well as the letter, of
the law. That Canada also adopted
this view of the matter with much re
Bret and man:' protestations is proved
by the general complaint that ascend
ed from the press of the Dominion. In
high official quarters the question of
retaliation was gravely discussed, and
. Indeed for the past few months the
Canadian Journals have contained little
but criticisms of what they termed our
unfriendly net, together with lamenta
tions about the privileges allowed
Americans In the Klondike region. It
was thoroughly understood ncross the
border that Section 22 was aimed at the
commercial Interests carried on by the
Canadian Pacific and no expectation
that the law would be otherwise In
terpreted was entertained. Canada,
while considering some mode of re
taliation for the alleged unnelghborly
position taken by the United States In
this measure has herself Imposed a
discriminating duty against tea and
several other articles received by the
way of this country. All these points
were considered In framing the bill
and congress In passing It must have
contemplated the securing of Justice
long delayed to American commerce.
In speaking of the recognized neces
sity for making a discriminating law,
the Philadelphia Press says:
Tho Canadian Pacific railroad was con
structed as a military roaa and heavily
subsidized by tho Canadian government.
It runs a line of steamships on tho Pa
cific, which lino Is heavily subsidized by
both the Canadian and British govern
ments. Tho vessels were constructed for
Mise In tho Biltlsh na-,y in case of war.
Tlieso combined subsidized steamship and
railroad lines have diverted a largo trade
from American steamship and railroad
lines. Carrying the matter still rurther
a contract has been made, nnd the ves
sels aio now In course of construction,
fm another fast steamship line runnlns
to Europe, to connect with the Canadian
roada on the Atlantic. This last line is to
receive an annual subsidy of $257,500 from
the Biltlsh government and $313,000 Irom
tho Canadian government. The vessels
are to bo for use In tho British navy in
caso of war. Does the attorney general
mean to say that congress desires to give
theso British subsldied lines the same
prlvllego in competing for our homo trade,
though landing at foreign ports, as our
own vessels? If so, we think that he Is
The protest from tho American side
against the general interpretation of
the section comes from New England,
where It Is claimed that Important
business interests are at stake, but the
opinion Just rendered by Attorney
General McKenna to the effect that
congress did not intend such discrim
ination against Canada will call forth
protests from all other portions of the
country. While for the present the at
torney general's opinion will guide the
customs officials, the Supreme court
will probably be asked to finally decide
the question. It is to be hoped that
congress will soon take up the matter
and make It unmistakably plain that
America Is at last In a position to pro
tect her shipping and compete with
England on the seas.

York Jeweler and was caught In the
In these days of surprises the modern
chemist comes forward with tho state
ment that food adulterations are not
dangerous. A New York man of mys
tery has advanced the opinion that the
cheap whisky of the Bowery Is not dan
gerous to health, because, if there
Is any difference. It Is more wholesome
than the higher priced varieties. He
discovers that In order to make the
ctuft cheap It Is adulterated with cheap
Ingredients, which are less pernicious
In their effects than genuine alcohol
and whisky, and that the Bowery sup.
posed poisons have nothing against
them except that they are deceptive, In
not being what they purport to bo
real whisky. Nevertheless they con
tain enough alcohol to satisfy the
buyer, and as much as tho prlco he
pays for the stuffs leads him to expect
An exchange, In. commenting upon
the subject, holds that there is no
doubt that the danger from adulter
ated products of all sorts has been
largely overestimated. The evil to
flow from the use of coffee that Is adul
terated with chicory or rye Hour can
hardly be regarded as serious, nor can
any danger come from tho use of
butter which Is partly oleomargarine,
Then on tho other hand, some adulter
ations are Injurious, as alum In flour,
acids and preservatives In spices tind
nppotlzers, tho chemicals that nro used
to keep milk sweet, and to mako
canned goods attractive, etc. But
whether the Adulterants aro harmful
or not Is reallv not nil of tho question
of adulterated nrtlcles. Of course, In
the Bowery, where a customer pays a
Bowery price and expects Uowcry
whisky In return, the quality Is not
of so much consequence if It la harm
less. But when tho buyer pays for a
genuine article, and Is put off with
one that is not what ho buys, whether
It Is hnxmless or not ho lias grounds
to complain Just as much as though
his money had been taken by any other
form of theft,
Mayor Harrlsdn, of Chicago, ex
presses the opinion that if the people
want boxing exhibitions they should

Cnrlotta's Tragic Life.
The word that come3 from Brussels
to the effect that ex-Empress Carlotta
Is nt the point of death, recalls one of
tho most tragic life stories in tho his
tory of royalty, Tho cx-emprcsswasone
of tho most prominent among the vic
tims of Napoleon III,, -who was more
of a serpent than u man. Another
woman wearing a similar crown of sor
row Is the ex-Empress Eugenie, who
for twenty years has been a lonely
nnd broken-hearted exile. It Is Im
possible to think of these two wrecked
lives without connecting them with the
dark political crimes of Napoleon III.
The evil that one false-hearted prince
may commit 1? illustrated In tho career
of that usurper. When a state prisoner
In France he wrote of an Ideal republic
with much of the philosophy and more
than the fervor of Plato. But when
placed at the head of a republic he
betrayed it nnd drove its defenders
Carlotta was born a princess among
princesses. Her father, King Leopold "..
of Belgium, was a brother of Queen
Victoria's mother, and her mother was
a daughter of Louis Philippe, King of
France. Carlotta married a brother of
the present Emperor of Austria. Her
whole life previous to going to Mexico
was a dream of brightness and luxury.
Married at 20, she resided at the splen
did castle of Mlramar, on the Adriatic,
belonging to her husband, whose tastes,
like her own, ran to the study of lit
erature and art. She was but 24 when
she came to Mexico, too young and in
experienced to know the terrible possi
bilities hidden In the sinister scheme
of Napoleon HI. to extend his power
to this continent. It was the discovery
of the black perfidy of tho French Em
peror that destroyed Carlotta's rea
son. Since .that day In June, thirty years
ago, Carlotta has passed through
many varying phases of a mind dis
traught. After a brief stay at Mlra
mar she was taken to a country seat
of her family at Laeken, near Brussels,
where her health Improved. Later,
she lived at the royal castle of Ter
vueren until it was destroyed by a con
fllgration, from which she escaped un
harmed. Since then she has resided
at a chateau near Laeken. There have
been years when her health was so far
restored that, under the secret vigi
lance of attendants, she maintained
the ceremonious life of a court. She
was fond of music, walked much, and
was Interested In the wardens, nnd all
her surroundings were kept In perfect
condition from her private fortune
of $350,000 a year. Three years ago she
became melancholy, her health de
clined, and few vestiges of reason have
remained. More than half her life of
fifty-seven years has been darkened
by insanity. The world, noting tho
contrast with Its former brilliancy, will
read the hollowness of wealth, power
and title when Involved In an unholy
The result of mixing French and
Russian microbes by President Faure

The Novelty Worn Off.
The much advertised free silver
camp meeting held at Springfield, 0.,
recently wps not up to tho expecta
tions of the most sanguine followers
of nn out-of-date creed. In fact, it ap
proached a damn and dismal failure.
If the hopeful Bryanltes had taken
time to consider the condition of tho
country they need not have been dis
appointed at tho fizzle. As the Pitta
burg Times remarks, free silver Is a
theory in itself that has little to at
tract followers any more than any
other abstract question. As applied to
the conditions of business which pre
vailed last year It was a popular draw
ing theme, for people thought some
thing was offering that would bring
relief. Now that the practical applica
tion of the theory has been defeated,
and that business is Improving with
out It, the Interest In tho theory has
been lost. The average man Is as little
concerned in free silver for money as
he Is in Bessemer steel for rails.
When captivating speakers like Mr.
Bryan, who was In the class of curiosi
ties as well as orators, appeared at a
meeting, a crowd was sure to greet
him. Mr. Bryan would draw a crowd
today, and ho would attract it whether
ho talked silver or played center field
In a game of base ball. But sliver does
not possess the interest for a curious
crowd that a living and famous man
does, so the crowds at Springfield were
small, Unfortunately for the promot
ers of the free silver scheme, they
played all their good cards when their
extremity compelled them to last fall,
and they have nothing left but the bare
and uninteresting platitudes. Nobody
cares for platitudes with the novelty
worn off, and many who believed them
when beset by hard times laugh at
them now. Free silver put up a brave
and boastful fight last fall, but this fall
the preaching of the doctrine sounds
more like mockery. Free silver will not
bo formidable again If the sound money
hosts do not give It encouragement and
do not overlook Its attempts to rally.
Judge Halsev, of Atlanta, has ren
dered a decision that should give him
an honorary membership of all suff
rage associations, Prohibition conven
tions and other bodies where women
congregate. It Is to the effect that an
unmarried woman Is not old when she
reaches tlio age of forty, nnd In fact
that she Is still a young lady after she
has passed her forty-fourth birthday.
It has taken a good many centuries to
worm this admission out of somebody
alleged to speak with authority; und It
seems to como with considerable sig
nificance In theso latter days, when tho
adage that a woman Is only as old as
she looks Is rather generally accepted.
Tho next proceduro should bo to accuro
nn opinion as to the age when a mar
ried woman Is to bo considered old.
It may stiprlso many residents of tho
United States to know that Indignities
to the American flag aro not encourag
ed In Canada, John Lumsden, a Cana
dian was miprlsed to learn this fact
tho other day when he tore up a
specimen of Old Glory In Toronto and
wns promptly marched off to the pol
ice station for the offence. It was only
a toy ring displayed In tho door of a
novelty shop at tho Union Station but
Its unostentatious waving aroused Mr.
Lumsden's wrath and ho proceeded to
demolish the offsndlng object afterl
which he Jumped on It vindictively.
An officer standing near arrested him
and ho Is now longing for ball and
wondering what is the uso of being a

If it were not for tho little girls In
New Jersey, tho X-ray people would

another little one In Harrison has been

Still another New Jersey child has
undergone an operation after examina

National Chairman Jones was vis
ibly disgusted the other day because
there were only COO people out at the
free silver camp meeting In Springfield,
Ohio, to hear his great free silver
speech. Tho farmers tried to excuse
themselves for their apparent apathy
by the explanation that they were so
very busy harvesting their big crop of
wheat, and so contented at tho pros
pect of getting a dollar for It that they
really couldn't bother to attend the
meeting, even for the felicity of being
told of their wretched condition under

the Fool Joker
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.
Danger In almost any form has a torrl
b'.o fascination for many minds. A per
son standing on a precipice or a high
bridge is tempted to throw himself over.
A man in a small boat with companions
feels an lrrcslstiblo impulse to rock tho
beat. Another looking at a deadly poison
wonders how such an innocent appealing
powder or liquid can .produce fatal results
and Is incllneu to taste it. But probably
no other form of peril is more demomao
in its temptation to weak minds than that
presented by firearms. Women nnd girls,
as a rule, are shy of guns and pistols,
but men and boys in numerous case show
the most perverso disposition to fool with
them. The deadly mischief an 'unloaded"
guu or revolver can, do has becomo a
standing Joko with tho nowspapjrs.
Scores and hundreds of graves have been
tilled with tho bodies of persons who
"didn't know it was loaded."
A caso of this kind was recorded In our
columns yesterday. A youth at Concsus,
standing at tho bedside of his sick mother,
with a revolver in his hand, nriposed to
show her how peoplo committed suicide.
It was raro entertainment for an Invalid.
The young man first snapped th lock on
all tho barrels and no explosion followed.
Then ho pointed It at his breast, snapped
It again, and fell over with a ball in his
body. It Is hoped he will survive. If ho
does ho will kr ow more. Ho has had his
lesson, but today or tomorrow some other
person will do tho same thing. This
youth's performance is to be commended
in ono feature of It, at least. He was con
siderate enough not to point tho "empty"
pistol at .his mother. As a rule theso ex
perimenters kl'.l their friends instead of
These perils aro enough in tho world
without needlessly creating occasions of
danger. When one gets Into a tight place
he fhould be a man and meet tho emer
gency bravely. But to fool with danger
and death is sheer Idiocy, The person
who points a gun or revolver at another
"for fun" ought to be knocked down on
tho spot and aoverely thrashed, oven If
al who are present can swear that the
weapon la not loaded. Men have been
known to swing children on the edge of
high banks or structures with a view to
producing a llttlo sensation and amuse
ment. Theso acts, when fairly examined,
will be found to be nbt only reckless, but
mean and dastardly. Practical Jokes
which derive all tholr significance from
real or supposed peril to those upon whom
they are played como pretty near being
crimes. The sufferers from them havo a
right to resent them as an outrage and,
if able to do so, to punish tho perpetra
tors. ' m
TOO MUCH l'OHTICS.
From the Marchull, Mich., Statesman,
Tho facts are that wo have altogether
too much politics In this country. It is
nil right and perfectly proper that every
voter should seek to Inform himself as
far as he may, with safety to his other
duties, on all the political problems that
nro presented for a solution by the bal
lot. But many times It occurs that bo
foro one campaign Is fairly ended an
other Is begun, and thus It happens that
In many cases the farm, tho store and
tho shop are forgotten, business Is ne
glected, friendships aro broken in a vain
and profitless discussion of only half
understood questions. Theso things
ought not so to be. Tho money spent
and tlmo wasted In a national campaign
would In a few years amount to n sum
sufficient to pny oft out national dobt.
Would it not bo better wisdom to drop
tho discussion of politics for a time, to
havo moro business and less bluster;
to put our shops and stores, Instead of
our political arguments, In order; to cul
tlvato our fields and tho amenities of our
better natures inBtcad of strifes and con
tentions of our political differences; to
practlco tho gospel of pcaco nnd good
will instead of tho heresy of mallco and
Thero Is a sure profit, quick dividends
nnd withal great pcaco and true happi
ness in tho experiment.
rilEJUDICK AGAINST CORN.
From tho Syracuso Journal.
Old stories aro told In connection with
tho Introduction of American corn Into
Germany. Fifteen years ago tho Gor
man peoplo regarded corn meal with as
much disfavor as so much marble dust
for food. Corn meal was even looked
upon with as much fear as If It were a
deadly poison. It required tho patient
work of several years to overcomo this
prejudlco against corn meal, and it has
been ono of tho duties of tho American
Legation at Berlin to assist in educating
tho Kaiser's subjects in tho uso of corn
meal as human food. It was perhaps,
Ilfteen years ago, that certain Americans
in Berlin ono day presented each member
of tho Reichstag with nn old-fashioned
corn pono, which had been prepared by
an American cook, Tho wise law makers
agrarians, socialists and others, seemed
to bo dubious about tho value of tho
present until the virtues of corn pono
wero fully explained. It took years to
educate the masses In tho uso of tho
new meal, nnd It Is not in general uso
yet among tho poor.
CKI9IE AND LITERATURE.
From tho Kansas City Star.
Tho fact is noted that a Buspected thief
lately arrested by tho Kansas City pollco
carried In his pocket, and diligently per
used whllo In custody, not a tale of blood,
murder and crime, but Bcatrico Harra
den's "Ships That Pass in tho Night."
This is taken as a singular circumstance,
it liclng a popular belief that most crim
inals are madu so by reading bad books,
and that after they enter upon a career
of systematic wickedness they read noth
ing else. Tho observations made by tho
officers of prison libraries show that tho
literary taste of prisoners Is fairly good,
and that they Beem most inclined to
standard fiction, It has been abundantly
demonstrated that n very bad man may
bo fond of good books, Tho most danger
ous class In the community is recruited
not so much from thoso who read doubt
ful books as from tho class who cannot
read at all.
TRIBUTE TO GOV. HASTINGS.
From tho Hartford Curant.
Governor Hastings, of Pennsylvania,
has earned another credit mark. For
reasons best known to themselves, tho
members of the state board of pardon3
recommended thrco Philadelphia ballot
thieves for exccutlvo clemency. Tho
sentence in tho caso of these rascals
was imprisonment and perpetual dis
franchisement. The board advised the
Governor to remit tho last part of this
sentenco and -estoro the ballot thloves
to citizenship. Tho governor emphati
cally refubed to do anything of the kind.
"Ho who either as election officer or
briber contributes to the spoliation of
tho American ballot should be accursed
of men," said Governor Hastings, "and
tho stain which discolors him should bo
reflected upon every person, high or low,
who profits by his crime."
TIOKE GAINING WISDOM.
From the Rochester Post-Express.
Hoko Smith, of Georgia, who left Pres
ident Cleveland's cabinet, becauso of tho
constraint of the free silver sentiment
of his section, and supported Bryan by
his pen and his vote, is one of tho many
who aro now on tho penitential bench.
Ho favors tho abandonment of tho 16 to
1 Issue, and depreciates tho "extreme
features" of Bryanism. As Bryanism
Includes none but extreme features, tho
degredatlon of tho currency, tho denial
of national good faith, tho overthrow of
tho Judiciary and fealty to tho commune,
Mr. Smith may be fairly said to havo
deserted the Bryan camp, into which he
was evidently led against his better
Judgment. Ho should have been wiser
at tho first, but evidently his reason is
returning to him. And thero are others.
From the Washington Star.
It is very well for Mexico to copy this
country's financial ideas; but it should
