If there had "been anything lacking
to fully Justify, nnd demand the decla
ration of th* Democratic party in 1S9G
against "government by injunction," It
would have been more thnn supplied by
the recent action of the Supreme Court
of Appeals of Virginia In pronouncing
null and void the act of the Virginia
Legislature regulating and limiting the
power ol courts and Judges in summary
proceedings for contempt, and by such
applauding editorials as that of the
Richmond Times, which goes to the ab?
surd, ridiculous and preposterous ex,
treme of calling the court's arrogant
contempt of tho Legislature, law and
constitution, nnd Its gross invasion of
popular right?"A great VINDICA?
TION of Popular Right."
If there had been anything lacking to
arouse the people of the country?the
?whole country?to a full sense of the
situation and its dangers, and to assure
the overwhelming success of tho De?
mocracy nnd the election of Bryan to
succeed McKinley next year by the In?
dignant and determined people, nothing
could so adequately furnish it as this
over-bearing and alarming decision,
and the approving and truckling wel?
come it receives from the Hanna and
Tv*e, too, could give a hearty and en?
thusiastic reception to both the ju?
dicial action nnd that of the monopo?
listic press, if we looked only to what
must be their political effect on the free
citizens of this Republic, though In
themselves they are baleful and threat?
ening signs of the times as well as
dreadful proofs of the Imminence of the
perils that confront us.
Happily, certain persons hnng them?
selves, if only they are nllowcd suffi?
cient rope to do so; and In this case the
rope has been provided in ample quan?
tity through the long-suffering patience
of the people, whose endurance has
been mistaken by the oppressors and
usurpers for servile and cowardly sub?
mission. Hut this attempt to erect a
government in thin State, superior to
the government of the people and con?
stitution, is going too far; it is the last
Straw that breaks the camel's back.
And yet here are some of the com?
ments of the Richmond Times upon
thlB Judicial crime, which is not only a
lull revelation of the collusion between
money and power and their identity of
Interests, but & remarkable specimen
of "dry rot:"
"It has always been a question In our
ntSnd wliich provision of the Chicago
platform would have hurried us most
speedily to utter ruin?the declaration
tor free silver or the plank that denied
the courts the power of self protec?
tion. Free sliver must have brought us
to a state of dry rot, becau.se there can
tie nothing progressive amongst men
unless they have a standard of value by
Which they can measure their rights
and duties when making contrai ls.
Contracts can no more be made with?
out a fixed standard or value than a
carpenter can build a house without n
fixed and unchangeable inch measure,
and there can be no progress amongst
men without contracts. Free silver
must, therefore, have ended us as a
progressive people aud have placed us
In the category ol dying nations like
"But to deny our courts the power to
compel men to respect their authority
Is to turn us over bodily to a state of
anarchy, or no law. and we do not Bee
how it would be possible to continue
our past as a progressive people In such
fc condition ns that."
The unexampled and unparalleled
progress of this country for 81 years,
With free and unlimited coinage of sil?
ver, Is no restraint on the Times In de?
claring that such coinage "would have
hurried us moat speedily to utter ruin;"
"brought us to a state of dry rot," and
"must have ended us as a progres?
sive people and have placed us In the
category of dying nations like Spain."
And for the Leglslaturo to protect pop?
ular liberty, by regulating and restrain?
ing tho arbitrary, absolute and unlim?
ited power claimed by the courts to
summarily fine and Imprison a citizen
at their own option (a reasonable re?
straint, as shown by our quotations
from tho Code), is. In the view of the
Times, anarchy and ruin. And yet the
Times claims to be a rational, a lover
of liberty, a friend of tho people, and
Democratic! But since the creation of
the world, no tyranny has existed that
had a more ardent and extreme defend?
er and advocate than this same Times.
Of course, according to such author?
ities as tho Times, free silver is not
only dead, but never existed in this
country; although It was tho chief
source and resource of our progress and
prosperity for 81 years, from 1792; and
equally of course, from the same au?
thorities (how reliable and trust?
worthy!) our real liberty and true De?
mocracy are also dead, or frauds cover?
ing anarchy and communism! As Job
said unto his friends, advisers nnd com?
forters, so the Democracy says to the
Times and Its cult: "No doubt but ye
arc the people, nnd wisdom shall die
with you. But I have understanding
as well as you; I am not Inferior to
you. Ye are forgers; ye are physicians
of no value. Oh that ye would alto?
gether hold your peace! and it should
be your wisdom!"
GOOD MEN BY LEGISLATION.
We all say that people cannot be
made moral by legislation; but that I?
because we all talk thoughtlessly, go
often. The more we think about it, the
more we doubt this common assertion,
so confidently made at first; and we
find that it Is subject to much limita?
tion and many exceptions. What are
morality and law, and their relations
to each other? And right here, on the
very threshold of the Inquiry Into the
matter, we see that the two have a
much more Intimate connection than
wo had supposed. Daw makes right
and wrong: either tho law of God or
tho law of man; and morality consists
In obeying the law,?that is. in doing
right, what tho law prescribes, whether
wo do so from the love of It, or our
respect for authority, or our fear of
the consequences or penalties of wrong?
Hence. It Is clear that law has a
great deal to do with making men
moral,?although It may be granted,
that, in the highest sense of morality,
that a mere decree or command that
men shall do or not do a thing, which
In itself alone is a matter of Indiffer?
ence, neither right nor wrong, or to
?do what should not be done, or not to
do what should be done,?cannot In
either case create morality, or make
men moral; nor, perhaps. In any caee,
is that a high morality which comes of
a fear of punishment.
It Is nevertheless certain that in the
divine, or natural, or human dispen?
sation, penalties are largely used to
deter men from wrong, or to punish
them for doing It; nor can it be denied
that, so far as overt acts are concerned,
the law does restrain men from sin?or
many men?and cause them to. be men
of -'moral life, and actions outwardly,
at least, if not virtuous and Christian
So, though we may in a general way
keep on saying "you can't legislate bad
men Into good men," we must confess
that legislation lessens temptations,
prevents much evil, nnd may help to
make bad men good, and to keep good
men so. And let us not forget It.
BEWARE OF TRAPS!
Mr. Bryan does well and wisely to
be very careful into what hands he
plnces himself between now nnd the
Presidentini election-day next year.
Having received an Invitation, through
Perry Belmont, to Croker's Jefferson
Dinner, Mr. Bryan inquires of Mr. Bel?
mont if his so-called Democracy is of
the spurious kind he had in 1S0G, and,
indirectly and inferentlnlly, if the din?
ner party to which ho Is invited, will
be one of real Democrats.
Mr. Belmont gives an evasive answer,
but cunningly calculated to create the
impression that while he, Croker et als.
are seeking to unite nil Democrats for
1900. Mr. Brynn is drawing the line
against nil who are not In full accord
with him. But Mr. Brynn knows that
a conspiracy has been formed to pre?
vent him from being renominated for
President next year, and that It ts
busily at work to secure anti-Bryan
delegates to the Democratic. National
Convention. If Belmont, Croker et als
are 'in this conspiracy (as they most
probably are), wouldn't it be very fool?
ish in Mr. Bryan to trust himself In
their hands nt a demonstration In New
York? Suppose he should accept the
Belmont Invitation to this Croker din?
ner, and by bis presence endorse the
thing ns a bona fide Democratic affair;
when, lo! it may be a trap sot for him,
backed by anti-Bryanites, and at which
everything done should be of n sort to
put him In the position of "a poor boy
at a frolic?"
Mr. Brynn Is right In inquiring ns
to tho political character of his hosts,
before accepting the Invitation; though,
possibly. It would have been better to
have declined, with thanks, all such
Not a few statesmen talk ns if the
Philippines problem could be settled by
a charge of oratory of the post-pran?
dial style, at ten dollars a plate.
PRINCESS AM ALIA AT HOME,
The Upstart City High Tune pre?
tends to have a, foreign correspondent
of rank, who Is on Intimate terms of
acquaintance with the royal courts and
nobility of Europe, and who furnishes
frequent screeds of exclusive gossip and
scandal to the High Tune, over the sig?
nature of "Princess Amalla." It having
been suggested that the correspondent
might be the former Miss Amelle IUves
who, after her divorce from John Arm?
strong Chanler, married a factional
Prince abroad ,a little Inquiry elicited
the following Information: The High
Tune has no foreign correspondent at
all; there Is no Princess Amalla em?
ployed by the High Tune! the person
employed by the High Tune to get up
this nllegcd foreign gossip, scandal,
&c, writes It all In High Tune, of which
he Is a native, and he has never cross?
ed the sea; his name Is Pavls Skoote,
who finds his material in the foreign
correspondence of other newspapers,
Associated Press cablegrams, a few for?
eign exchanges, weeks old, an ancient
edition of an encyclopedia, nnd his own
Imagination, aided by a lot of sensa?
tional yellow-backed novels (second?
hand and paper-backed) translated
from the French; fce lives high?In a
garret-room over the High Tune office;
and the High Tutie pays him the mag?
nificent sum of two dollars a letter,
when the labor Itself alone, wlthi ut
considering the genius shown by the
writer. Is worth throe times that sum.
But this Is an old game, formerly
played by many New Tork nnd other
city papers on their readers; and It Is
alleged that otlft-r papers besides the
High Tune still keep It up. It la a fact,
too, that a cablegram or a line or two,
Is often expanded Into columns by en?
terprising journals. For Instance, It
such a Journal receive a special, dated
Berlin or Paris, or elsewhere, or an
associated press Item, stating briefly:
"Bogus BulfOgUS Is dead," It is imme?
diately given to a "pudder" in the ollice,
or sent to a bureau of information, and
It Is speedily expanded to any length
PATRIOTISM AND RIGHT.
It. Is a curious, striking and apt out?
come of the atrocities of this adminis?
tration and of the mental and moral
altitude of those who egg It on in its
course of shame and outrage, that the
Washington Posl and other Hanna
Algcr-Lagan organs (the Post surpass?
ing Eagan, Indeed, In vituperation
without bottom) arc filled with bloated
diatribes against the people who have
exposed nnd denounced these Federal
enormities, as if they (the people) were
the real guilty ones In connection with
the iniquities. \
Hotten beef and other like supplies
for cur victorious Cuban and Porto
Blcan heroes, and particularly for the
6ick and wounded among them, was
all right end commendable, If It had
not been made public,?it it had not
been exposed to the reprobation of the
world. Our brutal and treacherous
conduct toward the Philipplnos would
have been highly honorable, easy, if our
people and the free press had not united
to uncover its vllencss and denounce It.
Hence, the audacious and atrocious
criminals?who have betrayed Ameri?
can honor, and victimized our brave
soldiers, dare to gei up on their hind
legs and howl at honest men for "tell?
ing cn them." There was no harm In
violating every principle of human
right, every obligation of American
honor, and entering on an Imperial ca?
reer of lust and conquest that Imperils
our liberties. Oh, no. H was crying
out against all this, and letting the
world know that there were still some
true American citizens who repudiated
That, not the outrages on them,
made the Philipplnos mad, and brought
them to the sticking point of lighting!
That Is what the Hannaltes say?Just
think of It. Even if this were mero
cheek. It would be monstrous enough;
but the horrible fact Is that the Han
na-Alger fellows and organs are actual?
ly In earnest and mean what they say!
They have no moral sense.at all, and
little of any other; but like the thief
who picks your pocket, or the burglaf
who robs your house, they are?very
sensitive to the wickedness and shain.^
of the men who detect them, or raise
Jtt6t consider that! Amazing as It
may be, these champions of bad beef
In Cuba, and our camps here, antl buc?
caneering in Asia, like the Thugs of In?
dia, believe they are doing right, If not
glorious and laudable things! Murder,
robbery and oppression, treachery,
fraud and inhumanity, are dreadful
enough any how; but when they are
done by a set of beings who actually
think they are right,?then these be?
ings are an hundred-fold worse than
their foul deeds.
Yes: the rotten beef was all right; the
atrocity was only In making it public;
so thnt foreign nations hold their
noses at the odor of the moral obliquity.
Betraying and enslaving and robbing
the 1'hilipplnos and committing treason
against American freedom, is nil right;
tb.e infamy Is In exposing and opposing
them, so that the Philippines were en?
couraged to kick. To violate the Ten
Commandments, is a holy career until
somebody makew It known by objecting,
Instead of Joining in the violation.
In Richmond, on the 11th day of the
approaching May. a Democratic State
Conference will be held to consider the

THE WORLD'S GREAT COMMERCIAL PRODUCTS.
Under special supervision
DH. WILLIAM P. WILSON.
Director of the Philadelphia Commer?
International trade In dairy products
depends mainly on the demand which
exists for them In Great Britain. This
Is especially true In regard to butter.
Another country that consumes more j
butter than It produces la Belgium. But]
Belgium's demand Is not more than
fifteen or a sixteenth of that of Great
Britain. Butler is also imported In large
quantities by the colonial possessions
of European nations?by the West In?
dies, by South Africa, by Egypt, by In?
dia, by Newfoundland, by the East In?
dies, by the Ouianas In South America,
etc. But Great Britain's demand Is so ]
largely in excess of that of other coun?
tries that It is almost the only market
that Is thought of when the export
trade in pure butter Is spoken of. Great
Britain's Importation of butter?exclu?
sive of margarine?Is now from 350,000,
000 to 400.000.000 pounds annually.
In cheese there Is a wider diversity of |
trade. Besides Great Britain nnd Bel- !
glum. Prance, Italy, Germany and Aus?
tria-Hungary are ull importers of
cheese to a far greater extent lhan they
are exporters; and besides the countries
out of Europe mentioned above as im?
porters of butter, there must ho added,
in the case of cheese, Argentina. Great |
Britain's importation of cheese Is now
about 300.000.000 pounds a year (291,604,
006 pounds In 1S97). Belgium's Importa?
tion Is not more than a fortieth that of I
Great Britain; Franco's not more than
an eighth; Italy's not more than
twentieth: Germany's not more than a
twenty-fifth? Austria-Hungary':-. nop
more than -a hundredth; Argentina's j
not more than an eightieth,
Cheese Is largely used In Europe In?
stead of meat. This has been especial?
ly true of England. But now that front
New Zealand, Australia nnd Argentina
mutton and even beef can be obtained
easily. It Is probable that the consump?
tion of cheese in European countries
will not Increase so rapidly in the fu?
ture as it has In the past. On the]
other hand, It Is probable that the
consumption of butter will Increase
much more rapidly. In the twelve
years from 1SS5 to 1897 the Importation
of cheese into Great Britain Increased
by 42 per cent. In the same period the
importation of butter increased by 31
per cent. But it Is not probable that
this popularity in favor of cheese as
compared with butter will continue.
Experienced dairy produccrfl believe
that the cheese market of Groat Bri?
tain is now, in proportion to poptlln-1
lion, at its maximum demand. In 1893,
ns compared with 1897, there was a
falling off in importation of 30.000,000
pounds. The growing popularity of
meat as an article of diet is hindering
the sale of cheese. During the last
twelve years (1896 to 1S9S) the importa?
tion of fresh mutton into England has|
Increased by 408 per cent., and the im?
portation of fresh beef by 284 per cent.
That is to say, the importation of fresh
mutton Is now over live times what
It was In 1SS6 and the Importation of
fresh beef over three and four-fifths
limes what Is was in 1SS6.
The following table shows the but?
ter importations of Great Britain for
the year 1898 and the sources whence
the Importations were obtained. The
exact figures are given, for the reason
that In comparisons such as these.)
where both quantities and values are
compared, round numbers (for a single
year only) would be somewhat mis- ,

Of the remaining importation the

sia. Russia is rapidly coming forward

Its annual contribution to the British
butter market it now not far short of
22.500,000 pounds. It thus stands nheatl
of Australia, Canada, New Zealand and
the United States.

In addition to the above Importation
of cheese and butter. Great Britain in
1S93 imported condensed milk to the
value of $7,179.565 and fresh milk and
cream (figures of 1897) to the value of
?19,240. - -
Although only ono year's figure;; have
been taken In the above table, yet the
distribution of the imports as shown
by these figures may be taken as fair?
ly representative of the general im?
portation. The imports of dairy pro
duets into Great Britain, although con?
stantly increasing, have been for Bev
I oral years very steady in their dis?
tribution. Germany, however, is con?
stantly falling off in her supplies, the
reason being that Germany is needing
her own dairy products to supply her
own constantly increasing urban popu?
From the above table for butter Im?
portation into Great Britain it will be
seen how preponderating Is the Impor?
tation from Denmark, although Its ter?
ritory Is only one-tenth that of the
state of California, or one-half that of
the state of Maine, Is of all countries
In the world the one in which the dairy
Industry Is most highly developed, most
generally organized and most success?
fully pursued: and the one, ton, in
Which It lias the largest plnce In the
general Industries of the people. The
development of the Danish dairying In?
dustries mey be said to have been be?
gun In ISM, when the Royal Agricultu?
ral Society of Denmark undertook to
provide for young mrn practical In?
struction In the dairy business. From
that time forw ard the making Of butter
became an Industry, for which the
larger and wealthier farmers <>f Den?
mark were world^wldo fnmous. Hut the
present standing "f Denmark as the
chief buUcrmnklng country of the
world depends hoi so much upon the
larger nnd wenlthli r farmers of the
country as upon the small farmers?the
fnrmer? whose farms runs only from
ton or ?ftren acres up to fifty or sev?
enty-live acres each. The average slse
of a Danish farm, exclusive of forest
or waste land, is only thirty acres. It Is
by the farmers <<f these small farms
that the bulk of*the Danish export but?
ter is produced, Uniformity of produc?
tion, the quality for which Danish but?
ter Is most particularly noted, could b"
possible in a country where farms are
so small only by co-oporatlon. Corope
rnilon In dairying was begun In Don
' mark only In 1S82. Now the method Is
general. There are about 1,500 creame?
ries, with varying capacities, ranging
from 200 cows eneh. to 1.500
cows each. The farmers sup?
plying these creameries maintain as a
rule only fifteen or twenty COWS each.
By a wise system of education and
proctleal Instruction the Danish butler
makers are thoroughly prepared for
their work, ami constant Inspection and
the giving of necessary advice gratis
by government experts keep them well
up In their work.
It Is the English market that the
Danish hutermakers have most In eye
In all tludr efforts at improvement and
organization. An expert agent in Don
dan, whose duty it is to look after the I
trade In every possible way and espe?
cially to prevent frauds being commit?
ted upon it. Is not the least important
factor In their success.
butter does not bring the very highest
price in the London market. Danish
butter goes principally to the great
middle classes, especially to the well
to-do artisan class, it is perhaps more
largely sold outside of London than in
The butter that brings the very high?
est price in London is a fresh unsalted
butter made in northern France and
shipped to London so speedily that it
la upon the tallies of the consumers
within twelve hours from the time It
leaves the churn. But for this sort of
butter at the prices it brings, there Is
only a limited and comparatively small
demand, and when people talk of sup?
plying the British market with butter
they always have in view n? a stand?
ard of excellence- tho sort of butter
that the Danish butterniakers produce,
for with the exception of the French
(or Normnn) butter Just mentioned,
Danish butter always tops the market.
An idea of the rapidity or tho develop?
ment of the Danish butter Import trade
into Great Britain can be gathered
from the following figures:
1SS7?Am't imp'ted.. 64,604,032 $13,343.470
1S97?Am't Imp'ted..H9.4S3.312 33,740,815
1S9S?Am't imp'ted..164,OS3.3G0 36.799,155
Canada occupies a position with re?
gard to the cheese Import trade of
Great Britain somewhat similar to
that occupied by Denmark with respect
to the butter import trade. In 1S6S
Canada's export to Great Britain was
less than 6,000,000 pounds and was in
value only about $.r>00,000. In 1S97 it
was nearly 164,200,000 pounds and in
value amounted to $14.643,S59. Almost
three-fiftlis of Great Britain's importa?
tion of cheese comes from Canada.
As already stated, our own exporta?
tion of dairy products is inconsid? ra
hle when compared with our total pro?
duction or our total consumption. Our
exportation of cheese has fallen away
to almost a third of what It once was,
and our exportation of butter Is only
from a forty-fifth to a ilfty-fifth of
mir total production of butter. But
still, as items in our International
trade, our butter -and cheese exporta?
tion are important, and their distri?
bution is something about which ev?
ery citizen should know. The follow?
ing tables give the aggregate quantities
and values of our dairy exports and
also the respective quantities and
values for the various principal coun?
tries we export to. The figures are foi
