A lot of "slush" has been and is
being written about liio necessity of
amending our Constitution so as to
enable the Federal Government to
extend, in the several States, greater
protection to the subjects of foreign
countries therein residing. Nothing
of the kind is needed or should be for
a moment tolerated; the general
Government aiready has quite
enough power, many think entirely
too much, over the internal affairs of
the States. There is no State in the
Union that does not give the foreign
subjects precisely the same protection
extended to native American citi
zens; more they have no right to ask.
The Constitution of the United States
was not framed upon European mod
els nor after European ideas, and we
do not believe that it will ever be
changed because of European clamor,
not even if Italy should be joined by
every nation in Europe.
The Indians are rather choice. It
is stated that they refuse to enlist in
the army unless allowed to join the
cavalry branch of the .service. They
have evidently never bean! the song
that was mote r less familiar in the
Virginia trenches during the late
ir, the chorus of which was,
If you want to go to bell just jine de
Rhone's reciprocity eggs are not
atching very fast, notwithstanding
is perseverance in sticking constant
,' to the nest. Perhaps that bad boy
Bill McKinley, who isn't very much
n love with either reciprocity or its
foster father, may have been chang
ing these eggs.
Here's one specially for republican
editors: If the tariff isn't a tax paid
by consumers how is it that sugar
became cheaper as soon as the duty
on it was removed? Take your time
gentlemen, in answering this.
If any doubt existed as to why
Charley Foster was made .Secretary
of the Treasury it has been swept
away by recent occurrences. lie was
selected to be commander-in-chief of
ne Harrison forces, and to so manip-
ulate the immense patronages of the
'rcasury department as to make Mr.
Iarrison's renoniiuation by his party
a certainty, and he is doing it to the
lull extent of his ability.
Mr. Harrison has asserted his au
thority and put a break on Mr.
Blaine's reciprocity policy, as far as
it relates to Canada, by peremptorily
ordering the Secretary of the State
not.to enter upon even informal nego
tiations with the Canadian Commis
sioners until it shall suit his (Harri
son's) convenience to be present and
to take part therein. What makes
this action all the more humiliating
to Mr. Blaine is that he had agreed,
and appointed a time, to listen to an
nformal presentation of the views of
the Canadian goverment on this sub
ject, and the representatives of Can
ada were already in Washington for
that purpose when the Harrison veto
was given to him. It seems to us
that in addition to being a snub to
Mr. Blaine this action on the part of
Mr. Harrison woe decidedly discour
teous to Canada, and a discourtesy
thatjwas entirely uncalled for. It
would have neither injured nor com
mitted this country to have heard
the informal propositions of the Ca
nadians, and, unless Mr. Harrison
has entirely lost confidence in his
Secretary of State, there is no good
reason why he should personally lis
ten to these propositions.
Secretary Foster acknowledges that
there will be no Treasury surplus
next year. Itepublican editors will
please take notice.
Mr. Blaine's intercontinental mon
etary conference was a decided fail
ure, as far as results are concerned.
All admitted the desirability of a coin
that weuld circulate in all American
countries at thesame vlue,but it was
shown that the difficulties in provid
ing such a coin are at the present
