lo the current number or tbe Forum
Senator Cullom presents so article ttdvo
ctling tbe perpetuation of the high tariff
tai system now in voue. Hit rffort is
entitled "Protection and the Farmer."
and, with the eieeptloo that it is tome,
what more polished in diction, and more
free from tbe literary and rhetorical de
jecta incident to the erege stump
peech, bia essay ia In no wise different
from the utterances of lt year's high
ta stumpers and newspaper essayleta.
We must fay in all sincerity that con
Iderlng tbe authorship, we bad expected
much more by way of sound argument on
behalf of tbe bik'b M system and less by
way of assumption and sophistry than
that wblrb we find In rVnaior Cullom'
essay. Its only counterpart in tbat re.
apect, ao fsr as we now recollect, la tbe
tea and coffee essay of Senator Edmunds,
which waa publiKoed ib Harper't Maga

are fallacious, supt-rnYial and assertive.

they read "Protection and the Farmer
in tbe October Forum, and determine for
themselves of what material It ia con

reading and are free to say that, atripped
of ita verbiage of all aorta, it la nothing
-mora nor less than tbe "home market"
campaign cry of 1SH3 in a new literary
costume, coupled with tbe old and time
worn assertion tbat, if tbe tariff reformers
have their way, all the "protected indus
tries" of tbe country will close their doors,
. and employers and employee join in one
mad race for the farm lands of the coun
try. rlut the honorable senator fails to pro
duce any data which will sustain his as
sertion tbat, if tbe tariff tax ia reduced

to himself and says, "the result baa been
greatly to reduce the price not only of
steel rails, but of steel of all kinds aa well
or iron m an lis rorma.
Now this matter of cheapness may not
be overstated, though we may differ with
nrnawr i-unnm a lo the cause. He at
tribute It all lo tbe hiuh tariff tax, and
tbe hsh tariff tax solely. In bia estima
tion Inventiona and improvements in
machinery and in the Various processes
of manufacture have no connection with
tbe cheapening of the product of Iron
and ateel establishmenta. Tbat panscea
for all our economic ills the bleb tariff
tax la alone to be given the credit of a
reduction in the price of ateel rails from
1186 to f'jT.ftO per ton, aa well aa tbe
price of steel of all kinda and of Iron in
all Ita forma.
Dut it seems tbat in two notable in
stances, of which Senator Cullom cer
tainly cannot be ignorant, thia great fa
vorite of bis failed to make tbe 'home
market' atructural iron and steel cbeap
enough to suit tbe would-be buyers of
uch articles. If he ia ignorant, or has
forgotten the circumstances, we refer him
lo the debate during the last congress
upon tbe metal schedule of the senate
tariff measure. In that debate Senator

How Bin It h Mas Roped In.
Tbe story ot bow Graham induced Smith
to join in tbe conspiracy is worth lulling.
Smith bad some law business which Mr.
Jenks, A. H. Trude' law wrtner. was at
tending to, and while at the lawyer's office
he frequently met Graham and struck up
quite a friendship with him. Smith was
having a streak ot bad luck aud Graham
found it out, and said to bim:
"Say, Smith, I've got a little scheme which
I tbink there fa a good deal of money in, if
tbe right man take hokt of it."
"What ia itr Smith asked, with tbe de
j cud air of a man wbo had beard of schemes
"Why. it' simple enough, but it will re
quire some judgment and uerva, " ,
"Tell me what it. is."
"It's worth $1,000 ca-h down to tbe right
man," said Graham nonchalantly.
The Scheme Narrated.
Smith's eyes sparkled as be heard the
amount mentioned, and he drew hi chair
closer to Graham's and eagerly awaited a
fuller explanation of the "scheme." Tut, ex
planation was soon forthcoming. Granam,
cautiously ai first, tut with g mater detail as
be proceeded, unfolded Ibe precouceived plot,
to procure bribed juror to try the men w ho
are on trial lor the murder of Ilr. Cronin.
He said tbat it was aloolutelv necessary to
defeat tbe end of justice in this cass to save
certain men, whom be descrilsrd as good and
reliable citizon. Trom tbe bumilatiou of
standing trial in Ibe future for alleged
participation in tbe same crime.
Mast Defeat Tultllc Opinion.
"Tb whole trouble Is," said Graham, "that
publld-oninioa fa so aroused tiiut it will be
impossible for Cougblia and tbe others tj
gel a fair trial bene we must protect ibein
from tbe cl.inior by the only means wd have
in our power to use." He continued to argue
in this strain for awhile, and Smith d eclares
tbat he was more than baif sfttit.fi -J that
tile defeudanta were really in need of some
sort of outside astiata ira. After a good lal
of argument and many misgivings at tbe

Phii ADKLPnia, Oct. 15. Representatives
of the Coiglits of Labor and the American
Ftfdera ion of Labor held a conference at the
Girard bonse yesterday afternoon. Ganeral
Master Workman Powilerly, Secretary

Wabmsotoii City, Oct li The Inter
state commission announod several decis
ion yesterday. Ia the esse of Henry Mc
Morran and Edmund B. Harrington, millers
and dealers in grain at Port Huron, Mich.,
against the Grand Trunk Railway company
of Canada, and the Chicago and Grand
Trunk Railway company, the opinion holds
that when a difference in ratee on grain and
grain products is unreasonable, tbe relation
of local to through rates should not be un
duly disproportionate. Grain and grain
product, classified alike, are presumptively
entitle.! to equal rates, and if a ditTerji.ee i
made by a carrier it assumes tb burden of
sustaining it by satisfactory evidence.
Tha Canadian Grand Trunk.
Upon tbe complaint against theGrand Trunk
railway of Canada for alleged unreasonable
ness of a rate of eight cent a hundred pounds
on grain and ten cent a hundred pounds on
grain product from Port Huron to Buffalo.
as compared with a through rate ot fifteen
cen i a hundred pounds from Chicago to
Buffalo over tbe line formed by tbat road
and the llilcago and Grand Trunk road.
comm ssion deci les that though tha
local rste from Port Huron to Buffalo might
be regarded as disproportionate on tbe basis
of distance alone, other considerations are
involved, and in view of tbe terminal and
ferry expenses at Port Huron, tbe Niagara
bridge charges and tbe Buffalo terminal ex
penses, all or which are borne by the Grand
Trunk railway of Canada alone upon bus
iness originating at Port Huron, tbe com
plaint against tbe eight-cent rate
on grain is not sustained; but no good
reason having been shown for a higher rate
on grain product, that portion of tbe oora
plaint fa sustained, and the products ordered
to be earned at the sams rate as grain.
far-Load Rate on Cattle.
Intheca-esof Abiel Lonard and Logan
R. Chappelle against tbe Chicago and Alton
Railroad company, it is held tbst tb main
question in these cases was whether carrier
can rightfully (uhatituto for tbe practice of
charging car-load rates on cattle, irrespec
tive of weight, the rula that while a car-lot
rate is named, a minimum weight for a car
loid ia prescrihsd, and any cxcjss over the
minimum is to be charge,! for by tne hun
dred pounds in proportion to tbe ear-lot
rates. The com mission decides that this rule
fa not unlawful, and, being more in propor
tion to tb service rendered, it is prima
feci more just and reasonable tban the
practice it supplanted.
Ih (Mat Most Stand Aside.
Upon the bearing it wa shown tbat by
state law or tbe ruling of state commis
sions, shippers of cattle in Kansas or Mis.
soun, to points within tb state bad tbe
right to load cars without regard to weight
at a standing price per car. It was said that
th rule was tbe same in some other states,
and the commission was urged to conform
thereto. Tbe commission holds tbat such
state action is not a reason for adopting tbe
like rule in intor-tate traffic, if that course
fa found not to be most just and politic. The
grant to tbe federal government of tbe
power to regulate inter-state commerce is
full and complets, and can not t narrowed
or encroached upon by state authority, either
directly or indirectly..
ROUGH ON THE RE-RATED.
Th Decision In Senator Manderson' Case
Covers Twenty-One others.
Washirotom City, Oct IV There ar
twenty -one case among pension office em
ployes, and a number a in on- official ia
other eiecuiiv departments, which are
almost Identical with the Manderson case,
the decision of wbich was made public by
Senator Manderson Sunday. Senator Man
derson was re-rated for a pension without
any knoa ledge on hi part, and a certificate
for the money issued to him. Senator Man
derson doubted tbe validity of tha action of
the pension office, and Secretary Noble in
bis opinion held that Commissioner Tanner 'a
action waa without warrant in law. Soma
of tb oHiners i i the peusion bureau, who
were re-rated like Senator Manderson, mada
no application therefor, while others did;
but all of tb twenty-one cases, witb Deputy
Commissioner of Pensions Smith at tbeir
bead, accepted re-rating and the money tbat
came with It
, ' They Will Bare to Refund.
It is authoritatively stated that govern
ment employes whose pension have been
illegally re-rated, and wboee caaa are cov
ered in a general way by the Manderson de
cision, will be required to refund tbe money
received as a result of re-rating. In oasa
of refusal to refund the money their regular
pension money and salary will he withheld
until all the money is recovered. Of those
who, on lieing re rated, left th government
service, step will be at ones taken to re
cover the re-rated money. The newcommio

How the Verdict Waa Reeelvod.
Tbe announcement of tbe verdict gave rise
to a scene rarely witnessed in a court in this
country. The guilt of tbe accused seemed so
clearly established, even by such evidence as
was allowed to filter through tbe objec

fense, that those present in the court- room,
many of whom were friends and relative of
th little girls whom tba aged nobleman
was charged with abusing, took no paint to
conceal their diagust with tb verdict Th
announcement of tha verdict was th signal
for loud expressions of disapproval from the
benches where the spectators were seated,
and the frowns and threats of th prodding
Judge wereof no avail to suppren the cries

Th News In London.
In London th news of the verdict wa re
ceived with great indignation among tbe
common people, and it is pointed out that
bad the accused been anything but a great
nobleman the evidence brought out would
have been sufficient to omvict bim a dosen
times over. The marquis of Kalisburv. wbo
manifested great interest in the case
ever sine tbe chargea were first brought,
hurried to London last evening, so as to re
ceive tbe earliest news of the result of the
trial. When informed that Galloway had
been acquitted be received tbe news with
every evidence of satisfaction. Tbe earl's
best friends scarcely hoed for more than
the Scotch verdict of "not provsn," and an
acquittal outright pleased them quite as
much aa it outraged t be sense of justice of
all other Englishmen.
