The editor of the Commercial must
"have had Fugitive Taylor in mind when
he penned thn above. It fits the cape to
a dot. The memory of Taylor's britf
and bloody reign ought to satisfy Ken
tuckians with Republican rule for de
cades to come.
. The announcement that the adminis
tration is arranging to exterd the "bene
fits" of national banking to the most re
mote country districts-, is enough to put
life and fire into the bones of Andrew
Jackeon and resuscitate the old guard of
Democracy that gathered under his flag.
Should this policy of financial expansion
fbe carried into effect, it is to be hoped in
the interest of the people (whose wishes
are occasionally overlooked) that some
method will be devised to insure an hon
est administration of the banks. The
system of periodical "examination" haB
failed. The "inspectorship" butines.s is
wholly overdone. The country is alive
with inspectors whose inspections are
not even skin deep. Many an official in
vestigation makes the inspector practi
cally a participant .in the steal. Every
corporation and every commercial inter
est in the country has relied upon in
spection as an unfailing remedy against
fraud. But an army of inspectors can
not legulate the working of a system
where corruption has full plays It often
goes undetected, and horaetimes un
suspected, until, as in the Newport af
fair, the mess begins to tiiik: And, then,
inspection becomes a very simple afi'air.
THE HANNA-PAYNE GRAB.
Senator Clay, of Georgia, in a speech
on the Hanna-McKinley shipping bill,
laid bare the infamous character of the
measure. One feature he directed at
tention to was the point that while the
aubsiily was to continue for twenty years
yet thips built After five years will not

words the promoters and backers of tliei?,c,ded to BlProPriaV 5375.000 for the
bill claim it is intended to encourage
tjghip building, yet no ship built after five
years is to receive any part of the sub-
sidy, although the bounty is to run tor
the next twenty yearn. In closing hia
'speech Senator Clay naid :
lu my opinion, this bill is vicious in
principle If the ship-owner is entitled
to a bounty to aid him in his private bus
ineep, cannot the farmer with equal jus
tice demand a bounty from the pubic
treasury on his corn, his wheat, cotton
or other product? Let us not make this
occasion the beginning of a carnival for
extravagance and profligate and shame
ful squandering of public money. Let
u-- not make it the beginning of a policy
founded on favoritism in legislation aim
subsidies to favored clasft". Let us not
crush the farmer, the artiVan or the
plowman by bounties granted others by
exactions upon them. These classes are
entitled to as much consideration at the
hands of the Government as the ship
owners. The principles of thia bill are
