. The Finance Committee of the Sen
ate took a wise and elernted view of
their duty in the solution of public
problems when they
agreed among them
Vrotec Vretec Vrotec
that some statistics
should be collected
te assist in solving the Tariff problem
that could be accepted with confidence
by both sides. It was with this In view
that the committee entered upon its la
bor of ascertaining the course of prices
and wages before and after the passage
of the McKinley law. The subcommit
tee appointed te de the work, in sub
mitting their report, say:
"Ju order te pive the statistics collected
the weight of the undoubted nutherity,
the committee decided at the outset with
entire unanimity that the inquiry should
be extended only te such subjects and be
carried vn through such agencies and by
such methods as were approved by the
unanimous voice of the committee, and
this plan was scrupulously followed in
nil decisions as te the character, general
scope and details of the investigation.
All concurred in the vlewthtit if the facts
could be secured in such manner as te
create general confidence in their accu
racy, a great step forward would be taken
in the solution of important economic
problems. There was no expectation
that tbe members of tbe committee would
agree about the political or even the
economic bearings of the facts ascer
tained; but all were desirous that here
after there should be no reason te ques
tion the integrity of tue facts."
- When Senater Aldrich made his
great speech en the Tariff, which was
the keynote of the Republican conten
tion, he accepted the facts and figures of
the committee's report without cavil.
When Senater Carlisle, the ablest and
most candid of the Democratic "Tariff
for revenue" adherents, made his speech
en the same subject, he accepted the
facts presented by the committee, after
its exhaustive investigation, withent
question of their reliability. Each man
construed these facts as best he could te
suit' Ms theory. That each did this is
evidence that the facts stated in the re
port are indubitably established, se far
as painstaking and impartial investiga
tion can establish them.
A report by se high and impartial an
authority, aided by the most skilled and
scientific statisticians, was bound te at
tract wide-'apread attention en a subject
of such universal interest. Time
enough has elapsed since the publication
for copies te have been received in Eu Eu
repq and a Great Britain. Among such
thinkers there as take a scientific inter
est -in the theory of Protection, aside
from selfish interest looking only te
their own or their country's advantage,
the report has created a profound Ira Ira
pressien, as might be expected from its
Tht Zentktn Financial News la one
of the meat influential and respected
JeeraM ia-lagUHd. In its tone of
Jsly.SM, it saysl
"hhfl'riKk! peHlble that English
critics, in their traditional veneration for
the principles of Frcctrade have been
hopelessly anil egregleusly wrong? Were
our own expectations, in common with
these of the majority of public commen
tators, founded en an cntlre misconcep
tion of the probable effects of a Protec
tive policy in the states? If this report
be net a tissue of artfully contrived lub
rications it would really seem that these
questions ought te be answered in the af
firmative. It is, of course, far from im
probable that the report bus been pre
pared by adherents of McKlnlcyistn.
The time of its publication is at least sus
piciously opportune, and party zeal in
America would scarcely hesitate at even
such a method of demolishing opposition.
But, when all is said nnd done, there
stand tlie nosltive statements of the sub
committee in all their force. According
te these, the cost of living has actually
declined in the Uultcd States slnce the
adoption of the McKinley act, whereas
in Great Britain it has increased. Wc
rub our eyes in amazement t Were these
prophetic voices right after all, which
foretold an era of prosperity for the peo pee peo
ple of the United States, as a result of
their festering home industry by means
of a wall of hostile Tariffs?
"If the conclusions en the sub-committee
are really borne out by the im
proved conditions of the people, the
Americans will undouetedly be able
henceforth te nut forward a substantial
justification for their Protective policy.
We might perhaps go further, and say
that Free-traders, all the world ever,
will be strongly inclined te reconsider
their position. If such a view could be
sustained in an exhaustive and impartial
inquiry, the members of the Cobden
Club would be compelled te adept a new
set of arguments in favor of their cher
ished creed, or the conventional shibbo
leths of a Darty which have outlived Its
reputation for sagacity would have te go
ignomlnieusly by the beard.
Free-trade has hitherto been held up
te our reverent regard, en the ground
that in opening eur'markets without hin
drance te all sorts of foreign competition
we conferred upon the public the enormous
bencnt et cheapening the cost of living.
The distrust et this theory, hinted nt by
Lord Salisbury in May last, would no
doubt be accentuated if it turned out
that Protection in the United States had
brought about such a result, while Free
trade in Great Britain had done the oppo
It should be understood that while
there is still a wide divergence of
opinion among different scientific
thinkers of high authority as te the
value of Protective Tariffs, yet the
trend of the best modern thought is
steadily against the old laizset taire, se
well represented by the present dominant
element of the Democratic party. The
se-called German historical school of
political economy has modified many of
the theories of the earlier thinkers te
the advantage of the Protective theory
and especially as regards se wide and
varied an area as Is comprised in the
domain of the United Stntes. The
Senate Finance Committee's report may
be looked upon te go far towards settling
definitely the long-argued and much
vexed problem. That a representative
of the conservative English opinion en
the subject should take such a view as
that above quoted is significant of hew
it will finally be settled.
The preceedings of the present Legis
lature ought se be sufficient te prove
the incapacity of the Democratic party,
as new constituted and officered, te
longer manage the affairs of a great
people like these of Kentucky.
With an empty Treasury, with all
legislation blocked by the wrangle be

with taxes largely Increased and no re

iiamduue, Sept. 3. Sunday was a
cool, autumnal day. The sky was eleud
less and the sun has tempered the air
agreeably. Ordinarily en such a day
the streets arc fllled with premenadcrs
and the harbor Is dotted with small
pleasure beats and excursion steamers.
The stillness of the streets, however,
has been, as during the last five days,
almost unbroken, and in the harbor
hanlly a defcn. bes were te be seen
moving at 3 o'clock.
The fresh cases of cholera discovered
Snuday number 830, the deaths num
ber 277. Compared with Saturday, the
decrease of the number of cases Is 79,
of the number of deaths 30. There Is
much loose official talk te the effect
that the worst Is ever, that the plague
is nbating, and that the people are re
covering from their panic. This talk
Is echoed by the newspapers. It would
be difficult te name any specifics sign
of returning confidence among the
people, and the mortality from
the plague in the last two day$
certainly gives little basis for it. The
sudden rise of the mortality from 201
en Friday te 313 Saturday showed hew
vain were the hopes aroused by the
slight abatement of the plague and the
fact that the average of fresh cases for
Saturday and Sunday is larger than at
any previous time shows conclusively
that the disease isat least net losing its
held. Despite professions of confidence,
moreover, the authorities have been
busy providing inhreesixi facilities for
treating cholera patients, and an
orphanage, refitted as a hospital, and
eisht cholera barraclrs have been
Physicians have been placed en duty
nt all railway stations and orders for
mere dead wagons have been sent out
by the health officials. The number of
interments Sunday have been S73, or
thirty-sis mere than Saturday. This
increase Is due partly te the sudden
lengthening of the death list Saturday
and partly te the extraordinary efforts
of the authorities te get under ground
the bodies which have been collecting
steadily at the hospitals. About 200
bodies were still unburied at 0 o'clock
Sunday evening. With the new dead
wagons, however, these bodies can be
interred, together with these of fresh
victims, within the next twenty-four
hours, unless the plague should spread
mere rapidly than new seems probable.
The precession of dead wagons and
hearses through the streets has become
appalling. Frem any corner a dozen
may be seen in ilve minutes, and en the
reads te the cemctcries they pass In al
most continuous lines. Places In which
one would leek for signs of returning
confidence show none. Cafes, restau
rants and hotels remain empty. Streets
are bare, shops are closed. The
cab stands are deserted. Most of the
houses leek as If they had been shut

Prof. Kech Is expected te return te
the city en Tuesday te proceed further
with his investigation of the course of
the plague, and te consult with the
municipal sanitary officials. It Is un
derstood that he will make en exhaust
ive report te the emperer en the con
dition of the city and the measures of
the authorities te combat the disease.
The Inefficiency of the authorities
here Is known te have produced a pain
ful impression In Berlin, and they are
considered at the capital te be crimin
ally responsible for the spread of the
contagion te many north German
tewus. It Is reported that Emperor
William has addressed te them a
rescript In whieh he reviews briefly the
course of the plague In this city, and in
unequivocal terms lays the blame for
the city's suffering at their deer.
