The nnlmitrt behind the Horr-llai vry
dfbate was shown by gtoans oil the pnrt
of the gold mpn ai a repl fmm Jlnrvey.
Men present nl a discussion, by tho
o)MMey of gentlemen, are simply guilty
of fuffinnism by gronninffeveti hood
lum honor Would be more sensitively
hi tltc than this
Tho occasion wan Upon n question as
to whether Mr. Harvey endorsed certain
things atti United to "Coin" where u
discrepancy was claimed. Mr. Uatvey
said "Coin" was a boy In knee-pufiUi
who representprt the simple truths of
bltnt trtlllsm, hut did not represent the
man llartoy In debate with Mr, Jlorr.
Whereupon these gentlemen, his guests
by courtesy, gronnd Ko better evi
dence can be had that a boy Is beaten
than whon he begins to make mouths at
his oppoaers. And no stronger testi
mony could be given of the conscious
defeat of tho gold side In debate than
this Insult to the victorious part.
"Coin's School" Is the silver itigument
put into the mouth of a mere boy, ns un
Illustration of how enslty truth can be
made to overcome error. The question
in debate Is not as to whether thero
was a real school and a sure-enough boy
In short clothes, or whether n gtoat
iBrge heartPd mountaineer took him up
and stood him on the counter of the
Palmer house olllcc, but whether the
facts and arguments put In his mouth
are ttue But when Mr. llatvey says
that "Coin" its thus presented n not the
Harvey face to face with Horr these
guests of his by his cotittesy groan
Therp was a like enso once presented
that tradition has preserved. In which
one lioy said to another boj, If t wtn't
lick ou I can make mouths at otir tes
ter " The cases are neater parallel than
would be that of the knee-pants boj,
"Coin," nnd the man who hn estortpd
such an unqunlllled compliment, us these
groans were, in his debate with the
thamplon sent out to oveithtow him
b the New Voik Tribune.
B the wa. uppoe Harvey had re
torted In Kind on Hon? All that was
needed lo do o wits to take advantage
of Hon ' own statement He said ho
had been a farmer, a trench digger, a
brakeman on a freight train, a baggagp
mnstcr, a lumber Ingget, n miner, a
bank president and a member of con
gress Suppose Harvey had sltnplv said.
"And ti falluio In all " It would not
have been half so dlstourtenus as this
groaning action of Horr's friends,
sit: in;.vitv iitviNt;,
YestPida at Windsor Castle Henry
Irving, peihapt. the gientest of living
actors, knelt at the feet of Mb sovereign,
who touched him wiih a Jeweled sword
upon the shoulder and said. 'Itlo, Sir
Henry " Tho ait was fraught with
profound algnininnce, and the friends of
the drama will hall It s an augury of
good omen, the bicaklng down ot it hai
rier whose strohglh in England can with
difficulty be appipplaled in this country.
Here moie enlightened and filendly
views aie held The great actors of this
country occupy a conspicuous place
upon the lolls of American genius und
the doois of sotletj open to thcil knock.
The honor of yesterday was bestowed
not so much as a splendid offering to tho
genius of Henry Irving but ns an un
precedented tribute to the noble ait ot
which he Is so great an exponent Mr
Irving himseir, for, with the modesty
ehuractet Istlo of tiuc genius, he wants
to be called by tho simple name he al
ways bore, accepts his knighthood In
this spirit, and though personally averse
to receiving the great honor, he con
sented because the social status of the
representatives of his art would be im
measurably elevated In the annals of
the drama the knighting of Sir Henty
living will be recorded as the most slg
nltlcnnt and notewoithy recognition of
the tlaitns of the drama as an agency
tor instruction, for tho elevation of the
t.iio and noi simply for the amusement
of the boied oi the delectation of the
thoughtless Heni) living is not more
a knight or less an imist, be Is nut more
an aitlst or less a knightly man, because
the queen of Kngtand has changed the
homespun "Mr." to the glittering and
chlvatrle ' r," But the drama has hud
a galling social ban removed and Its
mission has rcetlved a tremendous im
petus. TUK nti.sii AlK WHO.

The week's news Is not entirely encour

as Inst week, lull still there nre lower
ptbes, ns corn nnd cotton have bepn low

favorable trensttrv returns for July nre
not Uhexpppted and mean nothing its to
Ihe coming business There Is perceptible
decrense In the demand for most innnu-
factuipd pre-sluets and tho actual distribu

midsummer. Mtlth of tho teccnt buying
was to anticipate a rise In prices nnd such
purchases tall oft when prices have risen.
