had its orign in tiemagogism of the most

injustice of his ruling. lie was bent on
making a cheap bid for popularity, and,
as is common with political charlatans,
he overestimated the ignorance and un
derestimated the information of the pub

independent papers, does not think much
of one branch of the administration. It
remarks that Corporal Tanner, who says
he is bound to get away with that sur

How to Get Them A Move Against the
Washisotox Citt, Aug. 9. President
Green, of the Western Union Telegraph
company, has made public reply to Post
master General Wanainaker's letter of
Aug. 3 ,onthe sulject of rates for govern
ment telegrams, and reiterates the statement
that the act of 18K5 conferred no special ben
efits on the Western Union company. It
did not, as held by the postmaster general,
confer the right to use -all highways with
out compensation. On the contrary, the
company pays railroads, plank roads and in
dividual owners for rights-of-way, and has
to obtain heensesand rights-of-way in streets
from municipalities or condemn and boy them
under state laws, just as if no national law
Grants that Were of No Value.
The act granted the use of government
rtone and timber, but it has never been ex
pedient for the company to use them. It
granted forty acres of government land for
telegraph stations, but no stations have been
established on such land. It granted rigbt
o -way over government lan I, but. except
where lines have been extended to military
posts, this privilege has not lie.-n made use
f. and In those cases it was used only for
the inveniouce of the government.
The Matter of Just Compensation.
President Green agrees with the postmas
ter general t bat the rates should be "a just
compensation. And betakes "just compe-
satioti" to mean a sum that will cover the
actual cost of the service, with something
added for the use of facilities necessary to
net form the service. President Green shows
by an analysis of the facts:
1. That the government rate Is the loweat
given any customer.
a. That the press rate Is higher when the
dispatches are reduced to their equivalent
lengths in messages.
a That the rates on signal service business
have been greatly reduced in the nineteen
years that the servlc 1 has been In noeiatinn.
4. That the rate on all government bu iness
has been reduced about 60 per cent in the past
twelve years, which 1a proortionately more
than the reduction on general business.
The I'raa service.
Regarding the service to the press Dr.
Green makes the following statement:
Although I have treated the press service as
not properly comparable with the transmis
sion of government messages. 1 desire to say
that in point of fact If the government had
paid us during the past several years the rates
stipulated by contract with the Associated
Press on news dispatches bearing one address,
the aggregate revenue for the government
service would have been larger than it was at
the rates the government paid.
A Mashing Conclusion.
The reply of President Green concludes as
The sum of it all is that the government haa
given us nothing that cost the government
anything, or that was of any value for the
government to retain nothing that has not
been worth more to the government and the
public than it haa been worth to us; whilst,
in consideration therefor, the government, by
Its reserved power, has been making a saving
for a number of years at tue rate of nearly,
if not quite, $1UU,UU) a year in the cost of its
tuiegraph service beloc what other customers
pay, whilst it enjoys, as it should, a preferred
seri?e over all other business.

Washington Citt, Aug. 9. United States

Harrington Creates a little Diversion by

London, Aug. 9. There was considerable
n proar in the house of commons last night
occasioned by an altercation which at one
time promised to end in personal violence
between Chief Secretary Balfour and Ed

Ireland. The Irish estimates were under

making his speech in support of tbem, when
be took occasion to refer to the case of two
resident magistrates who had refused to sub

cause Harrington, who was a member of the
committee, had violently denounced the po

When Harrington bad bn quieted by bit

provoked, not so much by Balfour's lan
guage, as by an insulting gesture which he
had made use of.

The One Speech bv the President.
On the arrival of the tram ot Waterville
the presi l-.-nt broke his "no-speech" determi
nation. Here there was a large crowd assem
bled on the green in front of the station. A
salute greeted the president as he left the
train for the first time since the departure
from Boston. Hi was escorted by the gov
ernor's staff to a platform mwr by and was
introduced to the people by Mayor Meatier.
The band played a moment ami President
Harrison soke as follows:
The preparations which have been made
here are more Mig'etive of a speech than
those 1 have -cen at any other place on my
route. I came from "Wahinton with a rc-o-lute

rear of the train, accompanied by Congress
man Boutclle, Hon. Hanuilutl Hamlin, ex-

the people courd not get a glimpse of Presi
dent Harrison till the train moved off again.
Congressman ttouTelie introduced tne presi

ing cheers. The president shook hands with
those fortunate enough to reach hun, and
was again cheered as the train rolled away.
Arrival at Mt Desert Ferry.
At Ellsworth Sfiiator Hale took leave of
the party, and save for an occasional cheer
as the train dashed through a station or past
a field, there was nothing out of the ordinary
until Mt Desert Ferry was reached. There
another crowd was met and it was a great
one, considering the size of the place. Sec
retary ot Sute tilaino, who bad come over
on a specinl t wtt from Bar Harlor, walked
along the platform letween tbe people, and
stepping into the private car, greeted the
president He was followed cl.isely by Con

setts. With but a few moment' delay the
president ami Mr. Blaine, followed by the
others of tbe j.ii-ly. left the tars ami walked
through the crow.l to the steamer S.ippho,
which was gnily decorated The S.ippho had
but few passengers besides the presidential
Sainted at Itar Harbor.
On arriving at the wharf at Bar Harbor a
salute was fired bv tlie revenue cutter Wood
bury, and trtV salute was re-echoed from the
yachts in the bnrlMir, nitwt wbli-h m
prettily decorated. At the snine time the
crowds on the wharves sent up rousing
cheers, ami the Imn I played a spirited air.
Tbe president and Mr. Blaine walked arm in
arm along the wharf to the street, where
carriages were in waiting.
A Slight ill-tauter.
Wbile the livery carriage containing the
president and Mr. Blaine was turning a cor
ner it ran into another carriage, and u wheel
of the latter vehicle was smashed. Mr,
Walker Blaine, Mr. Halfofd anrt Mr. Lvige
followed iu a carriage drawn by 1'r. Blaine's
horses, ami a number of other carriages fell
in behind, making quite a procesr.ion through
tbe Maiu street, while the piazzas of the
hotels were filled with on-lookers.
Sale Iu the lllaine Cottage.
Many of the buildings were decorated.
and at several points along the route cheers
for the visitors were raised. But when the
procossion turned out of Main street to pro
ceed to Stan wood, Mr. Blaine's cottage, tbe
streets contained no crowds and few decora
tions. On reaching the cottage the president
and party were welcomed by Mrs. Blaine,
and quickly made themnelves at home. Last
evening tbe president dined quietly with the
Blaiue family and rested from the fatigues
of the day.
