: Tiikuk is gdod prospect of a vote
of censure being passed in the House
of Commons, should the government
join in the proposed movement to
coerce Greece by blockading the
port of Athens. The amount of
badgering the government leaders on
the lioor have had to undergo lately
is enough to make them hope for a
vote of censure or anything else that
would relieve the tedium.
Should the blockade of the port
of Athens be followed, as seems
probable, by a declaration of war by
Greece, the Powers would then be
compelled to raise the blockade or be
open to the charge of assisting Tur-key
ngainst Greece. The lengths to
which they have already gone in favor
of the medieval despotism arc shameful
and we have no assurance thev

"What will iho senate do with the
tariff bill?" asks a Democratic paper.
Why, pas3 it, of course. It will no
doubt be discussed and amended
considerably before it receives its
final vote and it was this prospect
that rendered it advisable for the
house to act quickly without extended
discussion before its first passage.
After the senate digests aud amends
it it will be returned to tho House,
which will probably spend more time
on it than it did before the first passage.
The Dingly bill will become a
law all right enough.
Tiik council failed nt its last meeting
to take notice of tho demand on
the part of many busiucss men that
tha matter of street sprinkling shall
be taken up by the council and pro-vision
made for it to be done under
city supervision. The matter is one
of considerable importance and the
business men of the citv, have a growing
sentiment iii favor of the adoption
of metropolitan methods in connection
with it. The service would
be better, jt would cost less and it
could be greatly extended to the in
creased advantage and comfort of the

will an opening for the cultivation
within our own territory of all the
the tropical and semi-tropical products,
and furnishing n desirable outlying

other nation to annex the islands
would certainly bo bad diplomacy.
Hawaii is knocking for admission,
her people arc very largely American
and this government should not hesitate
to throw about the islands her
protecting arms. Fears of foreign
complications growing out of the annexation
are ill founded. The danger
lies in allowing somo other nation to

What amount of evidence would
it require to convince Senators Hoar,
Hale and others who evince such a
decided repugnance lo doing or saying
an thing for Cuba, that a state
of war exists and that the Spanish
arc conducting their end of it on
barbaious lines that would hac'
shauud the civilization ti hundred
years ago. If they contend that we
have no ivideme of these things and
that the time has not conic for the
recognition of the fact by the American
congress, in heaven's name when
will it come ami what will it take to
convince them of the fact? The
of Monday suggesting that
ihc president enter a protest against
the proposed summary execution of

vote, met with strong opposition
in the discussion.
It is n bad policy lo pay for sugar
all the menev we cot for wheat and
flour, but that is what the United
Slates is now doing. We last year
bought 6100,000,000 worth of for
eign made sugar and to pay for it
required every dollar we got for
wheal aud flour exported. The manufacture-
of beet sugar which made
such an excellent start uuder the
McKinley law, but which wa3 practically
suspended by the election of
1892, has languished under the Wilson
bill. A new impetus will be
given it by the Dingley tariff, together
with the special inttrcst taken
in the subject by Secretary Wilson
aud the efforts he i3 makina in the
direction of proving Ihc soil throughout
the country as to its adaptability
to beet culture. We may faiily hope
that bifore the year 1800 this
will produce much the larger
part of the sugar it now bins
Tiik pasage by a unanimous vote
of the resolution advising the President
to protest against the proposed
execution o' General Kiver.i is evidence
enough that the time has almost
come when congress will no
longer witness in apathy the murder
ous wnrfarc now carried on by the
Spanish. Should Rivera be actually
shot the chances arc ten to one that
it would precipitate an
of Cuban belligcrancy at once.
The text of the resolution is as fol
"Whereas. Information has come
to the Senate that Gen Hin. Rivera,
it leader of the Cuban army of independence,
recently captured by the
Spanish forces, is to be tried by
drumhead court-martial and shot,
"Resolved, That in the judgment
of the Senate, it is the duly of
the President of the United States, 'f
such information is found to be true,
lo protest to the Spanish government
ngainst such a violation of the
rules of civilized warfare."
A srKCiAL correspondent
"Globe-Democrat," now in
writes that paper as follows :
In his message at the opening of
the short session of the last congress
in December President Cleveland
dwelt at length upon the interests,
humane, business aud political,
win. 'ii tne united Slates lias in ill's
struggle. He said that the time, in
his opinion, had not come for interference
by the United States, but he
made it plain that the time was not
far away when, if an end of the war
had not been reached, it would become
an international duty to iusist
upon a just settlement. That time
has come. The conditions favor, in
every way, prompt action by the
Uuitcd States. What the ultimate
purpose of the United States should
lc beyond the establishment of peace
is n matter of differing opinions, but
that the action of tho government
will bo welcomed by all parties interested
is of general belief. An opportunity
has come to the McKiuIev
He is on the ground where he is in
position to judge, of the situation ami
certainly is to be credited with as
much understanding of the situa'ion
as those senators who say we have
only rumors and reports.
Tiikuk seems to be a good prospect
for the passage of a national
bankruptcy act by the present con
gress. The bill before the senate is
now being discussed. It is a matter
of great importance to the business
interests of the country mid busiucss
men very generally approve it ns a
necessary measure, and one that will
lead to good results nnd materially
insist in the revival of business.
Thousands of good business men are
now kept down by n load of debt, in
many instances the result of misfortunes
and are so hounded by creditors
as to render it impossible for
them either to pay their obligations
or by any rncuns to accumulate
again to embark iu business.
Of this number are many good business
men whose services to thu business
world would be of great value.
Tho diverse, legislation of the various
states 011 the subject of insolvency
is unsatisfactory and leads to
serious complications nntl expensive
litigation that would bo avoided by n
national statute of general application.
Tho feeling exhibited in congress
toward the pending legislation
augurs well for its prospect of passage.
Tiik gravel road question tdmt'd hh.t the Senate, In refusing to rail fy
bo settled as ntiicklv as possible. The
whole pcoplo of the county arc interested
in il and no section more than
the city of l'nducah. Whether the
council would bo wise in accepting
the proposition of the county to surrender
its stock, some $22,000 in nil
the roads, in return for the roads
within the city limits is an open
question. That the city is vitally in
terested in the lifting of the tolls
from every road lending into the city
no one will deny. The ownership of
the roads within the city limits will
be of no special value to the city
with all the roads in the county free.
It would be of no advantage whatever,
with the roads in the county
still subject lo lolls. Certainly no
surrender of stock or other consider
ntion ought or will be executed by
Ihc city without the insurance that
nil the loll gates arc to be removed.
If the county completes arrange
ments for Ihc of the roads
the city must pa1 the bulk of the tax
for said purchase and there does not
appear to be any good reason why it
should as a business Impaction, in
addition thereto surrender its stock.
As a matter of policy to forth r the
project it might lie v ise for the city
to donate a part or the whole of its
stock. That is a matter for the
council to take unrier advisunent.
Sinck the da s of Sam Itandall,
the great protection Democrat of
ennsvivatua, me protection senti
ment within Ihc Democratic part.v lias
decidedly declined. Randall had a
large following. In 1881 Mr. Rau-
dall mustered forty-one Demo rats in
opposition lo tbc Monisou hoi .ontnl
bill and two years later thirty-live
voted with the Republicans to defeat
the second Monisou bill. There has
since wmi lime, now ever, 111 ine au-
sence of a great protectionist leader
ike Randall, been a decided dclinc
in the sentiment within the party.
Hut the recent vote on the Dingle
bill seems to indicate a return of the
pro'ection sentiment among the Democratic
members, especially thoe
from the South. Five southern
Democrats voted for the bill boldly.
Many others would have done so had
it been amended- in some particulars
where it was objectionable to their
eonstitutneies. Not all Democrats
arc blinded to the lessons of the
last four ears. They have seen ths
theory of Ihe free-trader put to the
test and seen the distress it has
wrought throughout the country and
on every class aud condition of the
people. They cnunot close their
eC3 to the true cause thereof. They
remember Ihe prosperity and happiness
that prevailed under other conditions
and do not desire u repetition
of the disastrous experiment. The
sentiment 111 favor of protection i
bound to grow within the Democratic
party aud henceforth Ihe tariff will,
as iu the last campaign, lie kept as
much iu the background as possible.
All manner of issues will be hatched
to shove it back.

John Hull's process of reasoning iu
such circumstances is this: 1' am
light, infallibly right, and, therefore,
those who do not think as I do must
be in the wrong.
The arbitration treaty is it case in

having such it treaty ratified, because
it would be of great advantage to her.
iu Cleveland and Olucy she found
men of putty, whom she cou'd shape
iu any way it pleaded her. As the
Senate Im.s not displayed similar pli
ability, it has evcited British disgust,
which vents itself 111 newspaper attacks
upon that body.

that the Senate shall pass upon what
