Field marshal Murat Ilalstcml.ot'tlieCiii
cinnnti Commercial C.a.ctte,scems to have
imbibed some vcrv iKCuliar views con
cerning the regulation of the tarilV dur
ing his recent visit to Germany, where lie
is supposed to have studied out what
bearing the rate of agricultural wages in
that land of Kisinarck and bier has upon
the discussion of the tariff (piestion in
America. The Field Marshal says:
"Now that the World and the Courier
Journal speak of it, the American laborer
ought to have the art ami science of gov
ernment exhausted in 'protecting' them
fromcomietition with the cheap laborers

To which, Mr. Henri Wattcrson in the
Courier-lournal reels off the following
logical reply :
"The opponents of the tariff have al
ways admitted that American wages
were higher than liuropean, and they
have been at pains to show that this
difference is greater on the farm than in

but Senator Ilalstead that sounds well.

Ill sjieaking of the wholesale disregard
of law concerning Mr. Harrison's recent
changes ill presidential postortiees, the
New York Star takes the chief magis
trates of the nation roundly to task and
accuses him of a direct violation of
his pledge "that in removing officials he
would regard public interest alwavs, and
mere party advantage never."
The Star also contrasts the strict ol
servance of law by Mr. Cleveland with
the utter disregard of his covenants with
the people by Mr. Harrison, and cites
the removal of twenty-four officials on
Saturday last as as example of the I'resi-
dent's wilful violation of his self-imposed
oDiigatious to uie people.
The Star says further:
"The new appointees number thirty
nine, ol whom three are to till original
vacancies in offices newly made presiden
tial, twelve are to replace omcials who
resigned, ami twenty-four are appointed
to omces vacated Uy the arbitrary
moval of incumlients whose terms have
not expired. l the resignations, several
will be recognized as the result ol execu
tive pressure in aid of partisan maneu
vers, and it is safe to say that the ap
pointments to the new offices are sub
stantially the only ones made conforma
bly to law in the orderly and impartial
conduct of public business.
No cause is assigned for anv of the re
movals, nor is there any pretense that
the public service will tie improved by
ttiem. llicy are, neyoini all question
made in direct violation of General Har
rison's pledge that in removing officials
he would regard public interest always.
and mere party advantage never, and oi
his still more explicit promise that he
would permit appointees serving with
credit under commissions antedating his
inauguration to complete their terms.
These covenants with the people he vio
lated at least twenty-four times on Sat
urday of last week, and thirty times in
one day ot the week preceding.
The contrast between Cleveland's and
Harrison'srespcctive views ofobservance
ot law in letter and in spirit is sharply
drawn in the matter of the Long Island
offices. Under the late Administration
Arthur's appointees who did their duty
were allowed to complete their terms,
and some are still holding over. But
Harrison has displaced Cleveland ap
pointees, without assigned cause, before
one half their allotted service has been
It is quite plain that where President
Harrison delays making changes his pro
crastination is due merely to party con
siderations, not to regard for official
duty. He waits for agreement of local
party leaders, but not for lawful occasion
to appoint new men.

A curious outcome of the negro exodus
from North Carolina would lie to make a
Republican district unequivocally Demo
cratic without effort on the part of the
whites. Cheatham, the colored repre
sentative from this State, says that from
40,000 to (10,000 will leave North Caro
lina during the coming fall, the majority
of whom will go from the strong negro
counties in the eastern part of the State.
As the Republican party hasbcen success
ful ill its work to make the negroes solid
for the Republican ticket, the loss will be
altogether to that party.
Some old people are dying nowadays
who, according to the expression of an
Irishman during the existence of an epi
demic, "had never died before," probably
much to the wonder of their friends.
Sometime ago, an old ladv died in Chero
kee at the estimated age of 1121 ; ail old
negro recently died at Mount Holly, X.
at the age of 108; and we read ot one
in the Nashville American whose time has
not yet come, though 1 K! vearsidil. Thi

Judge Terry had live indictments hang

Heady of Oregon, who expected to hold

What a large and in every way remark
able country America is? While in this
region rains following rains have satu
rated the earth until it is like a sponge
after being dipped in the ocean, a tele

The ViricJiiia Campaign.
It is evident that the Iieinocratic cam
paign in Virginia this year is not to be
one of change, but is to be conducted in
a systematicand vigorous manner. There
is to be thorough organization in cvery
coiiutv. Hon. Itasi li. Gordon, the new
hairman ot the State committee, will
announce his executive committee, which
is to be composed of one member from
.ach ol the ten congressional districts, in
i tew days. It is said the State co iimit-
tce is to have two secretaries Cam.
Ham. Shepiiard, late internal rcvcnuccol-
lectoroftiic Lynchburg district, and Mr.
James K. 1-isher, late postmaster ot the
United States House of Representatives.
Mr. Shcppard, who was 1'ormcrlv secre
tary of the committee, and one of the
best political organizers in the State,
will be assigned to duty in the field, and
will see that the county organizations
are made effective, whilst Mr. 1-ishcr.
i has also had large experience in
political matters, will be put in charge of
headquarters, which w ill be in Richmond
or Lyiichliurg. Gen. At 'hone has the
reputation ol being an adept in the art. of
political organization, but this year he
will find his equal at the business among
the Democratic managers.
Organization of Uie Honae.
It seems that the Republicans mav find
it difficult, after all, to organize the new
House of Representatives if an carlv ses
sion is called. According to our Wash
ington dispatches this morning the death
of Congressman Laird, of Nebraska, may
seriously complicate matters, as it leaves
them with only a b.are quorum, and con
sequently every Republican member must
be in his seat in order to enable them to
proceed with the organization. It is
thought, in view of the narrowness of
their margin and the number of things
which might happen to wqic it out for
the time lieing, that the party leaders
may decide to abandon the idea of an ex
tra session, unless in the meantime thev
should gain some congressmen from the
new States now being organized, or the
late Mr. Laird's successor, who is likely
to lie a Republican, should lie chosen.
