The reason, as given recently by one
Of Hcuroturv Foliror's friends, for tho
(coolncra existing between Conklhig on
tho onjhund and Eplccr and Arthur
on tho other, is Mibstantlully this:
When Arthur became president,
Conkllug was asked to accept tho poit
Uollo of state. This ho declined, on
the ground that lie was out of politic,
and ambitious to mako money, or
which he stood badly in need. What
did ho want? was asked in a tone that
indicated a ready compliance "J
havo but one request to make," Jald
he slowly and with emphasis: "1
want that fellow Jlobortann kicked
out of tho oustoii-hotiec.n In vain
Arthur and Folgor reasoned with
him. It would bo impolitic, they
rinld, considering Arthur's manner of
succession, to remove Hobertson with
out cause. Already there existed a
strong prejudice against the adminis
tration, and It needed but a single
fulsp stop of this sort to array solidly
against them all tho opposition of the
bulf-bn-eds. When Hobertson'a term

In this strain they argued for over
an hour. Conkllng listened jMitlcntly,
with a sneer on his haughty luce, lie

There promises ouo good result to
eomooutof tho taiiii'dlscussion. It is
estimated by thoso In favorablo posN
tlons for observation that there will be
a reduction of Imports In this country
during tho current year. This will
hayo thb double cllect of curtailing ex
penditure by tho people and reducing
the icvonucsof the government. He
ducllou of tho revenues Ih but u form
of reduction of taxation, as tarllls an
now levied. Curtailment of Imports
Is not a self-evident advantage whou
eontompluiedfrom an economical stand
point, Whether Imports udd to or
diminish u people's Jwtmtlh u
i-ends. of course, upon what they bring
In. The Importation of industrtftl
materials or goods which add to the
productive power of the people nfofo
than they Mini, Is at once the sign and
the cause- of prosperity, what Ih
styled tho "balance of trade" may ho
against any country to Its advantage,
but, rarely, pcrjuinu, is so. Uut when
tho balance of trade against a country
is tho result o( purchases of articles of
luxury, whloh perish In tho using, (he
fact shows that such country is spend
ing its nroflts or going into dchtiin
prodtieUvcly. The imports lhv tint
past year into (ho Uultett fcStulca show
that our people have boon lurgely en
gaged In tho economical folly of Im
porting luxuries, and have thus turned
the balance ngainut us. For example,
in tho ten months which ended Octo
ber 81, the Imports of silk goods
amounted to $71, W8,W1, against $10.

This ts but one Item out of it large
number by which the aggregate In

ceeded those of 1881 by about $100,000,
