Mb, Cleveland having p re
aided recently at a meeting near Buz
sard'a Bay, held for tbe purpose of tak
ing staps to protect tbe fish of tbe bay
from destruction by tbe working of
seines, wires and pounds, tbe New York
Press seriously calls bim to account for
opposing protection for men wbile sdTo
eating protection for fish. This leads tbe
Standard to say: It bas been said that
there is nothing in a name but that is
mistake. It is a name that turns tbe
ideas of protectionists topsy turvey, and
makes tbe full-blown editor of a metro
'politan paper see an analogy between
protection intended to prevent fish
slaughter, and protection intended to pre
vent men from buying goods where tbey
prefer to buy. He would probably see
analogies between tbe protection that
protects a man's property from midnight
marauders, ami tbe protection that pro
hibits him from going away from the
borne market in bis own ward to buy provisions.
A crisis Beems imminent in Eurotcsn
affairs in two ways. France and Ger
many are going about like a couple of
game cocks, waiting each for an overt
act upon the part of the other. But this
belligerent spirit is cast in the shade by
another problem that confronts Germany.
Her crops are short. Russia bas only
enough for borne consumption and will
allow none to be eiported. Under the
circumstances tbe demands of the peo
for a reduction of tbe duties on grain are
receiving marked attention. The chan
cellor. Von Capri vi, is opposed to any
reduction and his action is rspidly alien
ating from his support many of the
strongest government organs. The mi n
ister of finance, on tbe other hand, open
ly favors the reduction and tbe meeting
of the reichstag presages lively times in
Germany. Meanwhile the socialists wax
and grow fat on the increasing discon
tent of tbe people. There ii revolution
in the air.
I'olidr-H In Oar Own ttat.
CSi. Louis Kt public.)
Tbe political revolution of last year
promises to be permanent and enduring
in tbe state of Lincoln and Grant. The
force of tbe issues which changed us pol
itical character then, remains unimpaired
and will furnish the elements of strengih
to the democratic party in next year's
canvass. Last year's election carried
those issues a long way toward settle
ment, but tbe republican party, on na
tional l.nee, bas since declared its adher
ence to the tariff doctrine embodied in the
McKinlcy bill, and in the last session of
the Illinois assembly that party remaintd
an obstruction to the repeal of legislation
for which it was responsible and which it
continues to defend.
The situation then, so far as the ques
tions to be involved in tbe next campaign
are concerned, is against the Illinois re
publicans. In addition to that great dis
advantage, the party is bopelessl diyided
and demoralized. The Mne of division is
not only that of antagonisms arising from
the distribution of the federal patronage
in the state, but even more marked is ttie
one which divides the partisans of the
Fifer administration from its opponents.
Governor Fifcr has not been a success
ful executive officer from a party point of
view. It would be difficult, if not impns
sible, to now recall another governor in
tbe history of the state who has so signal
ly failed to satisfy the demands of his
friends, or who, in one term, has o com
pletely alienated from himself a large aud
influential section of his party. It ma;
be urged in this connection, and witti
some degree of plausibility, that these de
mands have grown with the enormous
growth of state patronage under republi
can control, and that it is much more diffi
cult now thm ever before in the state's
history to meet the expectations of those
seeking office, whose numbers have in
creased out of proportion even with the in
crease in the number of offhes to be be
stowed. Conceding this to be true, the
fact remains, and it is the only one neces
sary to deal with for the purposes of this
article, that his management of the ma
chine bas disrupted his party in tbe state.
Bis renuminalion will widen the breach.
His withdrawal or defeat would be
only a palliative. The quarrels arising
from tbe distribution of offices at Spring
field have been carried into the politics
of nearly every county in tbe state and
have split tbe party into factions, which
will an'agonize each other as long; as
either Fifcr or Cullom. his preceptor,' re
mains a factor in the case. Any seem
ing harmony will be only seeming. The
elements of apathy and indifference are
already visible. Observers of Illinois
affairs cannot fail to note this year tbe
absence of the fierce partisan spirit of
aggression which once distinguished Illi
nois republicanism. The party is pros
trate, and Icbabod is written on its
Illinois democrats, on tbe other band,
are animated with a courage which is
already filling the lists of candidates for
party nominations next year. The disap
pearance of tbe local divisions in Chicago
on a basis of settlement, most satisfactory
to all interests removes tbe greatest ele
ment of doubt as' to the result of the elec
tion in Illinois next year, and it removes
it, it Is needless to say, in a way entirely
satisfactory to tbe democrats.

M'KINLEY AND APPLES.
AMUSING ILLUSTRATION OF A SELF
If Ks Tork Baa a Very Bit; Crop the
IHity taw No Figure, f Small Crop
the Farmers Gain Nothing; Evaporators
Idle, and Why.
Some of the apple growers of Wayne
county, Nv Y., the greatest apple county
in the United States, are wondering how
the McKinley tariff on apples is going
to benefit them: They have given the
tariff two trials one with a poor, the
other with a good, crop. Last year they
had no crop at all in Waie county,
and of course were not benefited by the
dtjty of twenty-five cents per bushel.
Not only did it not protect the farmers,
but in many ways it injured thern.
It is estimated that nearly 1,000 apple
growers in tbe county have evaporators.
Many of them would have imported ap
ples from across Lake Ontario, where
there was a fair crop, and kept their
evaporators busy, incidently giving
-vork to American labor, which, in the
vicinity of Wayne county, was then
radly in need of employment. The JIc
Kinley tariff ripened a few weeks ahead
f the Canadian apples, and shnt off any
tains to the county from t'ui.s source. As
a consequence some of the proprietors of
lirge evaporators moved their outfits
iato Canada to give employment to for
eign labor. Others moved to Michigan
snd operated evaporators-there.
Wayne county has several large can
ting factories. One of these would have
bought 8,000 bushels of apples in Canada
List year. The canning of th"se would
have given employment to many needy
families, and the product would have
rrpplied many poor people with cheap
fjod. McKinley said, "No; it is not
g xkI for Americans to eat the pauper
fruit of Canada." And to help enforce his
edict he caused the price of two pound
tin cans to be increased about three
fir'ths of a cent. The result was that
tl.is same company canned apples in a
C.inadian factory, and to make up some
of the $6,000 loss, because of the in
creased cost of cans, cut down the wages
of a part of their employees, canning
other fruits in Wayne county, from one
dollar to eighty cents per day.
This year, with a good crop of apples,
we will, as usual, expert several million
dc liars worth and import none, compar
atively. Nor have we in good years
ever imported many, though apples have
heretofore been on the free list. Cf
coarse, if there were no imports to com
pete with American apples, the tariff is
ns-less ami in no way helps the Axneil
ca i apple grower. If the McKinley bill,
th-n, injures the growers when they
have a poor crop and does them no good
wLen they have a good crop, how in the
wc rid is it going to help them?
SHERMAN'S ANTITRUST LAW.
Will It Be Enforced Against the Clai.il
herman's universal panacea for cur
ing or killing trusts and combinations
haf. put thb McKinley organs, notably
the Chicago Inter-Ocean and the Cleve
land Leader, in the hole.
These high tariff journals declared
aft-r its passage that it would effectu
ally put an end to all trusts and combi
nations whatsoever, but not one has so
far sneenmbed to it, nor has a siagle suit
been brought by the attorney general
against them. And now these organs
are wailing because the trusts have
neiiher obeyed the law nor heeded their
wartiirrgs. In the meantime the car
tridge trust and the lead trust and others
are getting out of the tariff all there is
And in spite cf the terrcr, which, ac
cording to these organs, ought to have
bee:i inspired by the antitrust law, thir
teen of the largest flint glass companies
hav-4 formed a trust under the name of
the United States Gla.-s company, with
a capitalization of $4,0i0.00(J.
T.iis new trust consists of the follow
ing concerns: Kiiig Glass company,
Rip'eyjS: Co., George Duncan fc Sons,
Adams & Co., O'Hara Glass company
fliu) tedi, and Bryce Bros., all of Pitts
burg; Richards & Hartley Glass com
pany; Chalhtior, Taylor 5c Co. (limited),
Tartntutn: Gillinder 6z Sons. Greens
bnrf; Hobbs Glass company. Wheeling:
Beliiire Goblet company and the Colum
bia Glass tjnipany. Fiuulay, and the
Niclel Plate Glass company, Fostoria.
Tl e trnst, by its control over the trade,
will le able to raise the average of .divi
dends to over GO per cent., instead of
from 40 to 50 percent., paid by these con
cerns during the past ten years.
Here are ttie dividends of one of these
flint glass companies: Jannary, 18So, 20
per cent.; August, 20 per cent.;
Januiry, 40 per cent.; Jnly, 18t4,
20 per cent.; Jannary, 40 per cent.;
Jnly, 186)3, 30 iwr cent. The Xickel
Plate company, -one of the members of
the liew trust, started three years ago.
Since that time it has doubled its capacity
out of its earnings. The stock of the
Columbia company, also in the trust,
has increased in value since 1885 over
200 per cent.
These are but characteristic instances.
And now that the duty on the products
of this trust has been increased by the
McKinley tariff from 40 to 45 per cent,
ad valorem to CO per cent., not counting
duties on packing and other charges,
the dividends will surely average over
60 per cent, per year. Does this trust
fear & herman's law? Not so long as a
member of another glass trust occupies
a place in the cabinet of the trust administration.
lllrh Wages venue Low Cost.
A large boot and shoe manufacturer
kt Cat isteo, N. Y., employs more than
100 pe -sons, .whose wages average about
ten dollars per week. A pair of his $1.75
shoes, on which the labor cost was about
thirty-eight cents, was sent recently to
our consul at Birmingham, England,
who ascertained that the labor cost in a
similar shoe was more than sixty cents,
though the weekly earnings of the work
men averaged less than ten dollars.
And yet McKinley 's claim is that we
need a high tariff to equalize labor cost
New and Very Becoming- Design Illus
trated and Described.
The season 1s at band when capes, man
telets or similar wraps easy to put on and
take off are in demand for driving. At
Newport, Saratoga, and other summer re
sorts where long drives in fashionable
equipages are one of the features of tbe
season, driving capes are especially re
quired. The cape depicted In the cut is one of the
several shape- worn by French women at
the races or wnen driving on the Bois. It
TF1E BOULEVARD CAPE.
is of black silk, plaited all round, and
has puffed epaulets. It is enriched with a
medici collar and graduated necklet of
jeweled passementerie. This quite new
and becoming design may be quickly laid
aside, when not required for warmth, to
expose a handsome toilet worn beneath it.
Many of the driving capes are lined with
silk of delicate and contrasting color.
Shot Silk and Lace Gowns.
Among new dresses some of the prettiest
are of black net in basket pattern made
over shot silk. A new feature in these
dresses is the hell skirt of shot silk covered
smoothly with net cut precisely as the silk
is sha;ied, then finished at the foot by a
deep flounce of black lace bordered with
the flower basket design. A stylish ex
ample is of pintc and yellow changeable
silk, and another is of pale blue shot with
gold. The silk skirt is simply a lining for
the lace, and is faced deeply with black
silk, then worn over a separate petticoat
of black taffeta silk with pinked flounces.
The lace flounce on the net skirt has an
uprisht ruffle as heading, with rosettes at
intervals upon it. The round bodice is of
the silk covered with net put on smoothly
about the shoulders, shirred at the waist
line, and finished with a flounce of lace
like that on the skirt. Sleeves of the plain
silk are studded with jut nail heads, and
have lace ruffles nt the wrists. An open
jet collar is wired to flare slightly. The
design of this gown is also carried out in
black square meshed grenadine over pale
blue faille. The lell skirt of grenadine
may have a lace flounce, or else it has a
border of pale blue ribbon, dotted with jet
applied flatly in a pattern of bow knots
with fluttering ends. Serpentine striped
grenadine is similarly made over gray blue
or rosy heliotrope silk. Harper's Bazar.
How skirts are cut on the cross puzzles
a good many, and in fact there are several
ways in which it is managed. The great
object would seem to be to reduce any full
ness around the waist to a minimum, and
to so arrange the material that it flies out
wide nt the foot. Some of the leading
dressmakers bring a corner point of the
fabric to the waist in the center of the
back, joining gores at either side, so that
the hem is perfect 1 y on t he cross. Most of
the French dresses seem to he. cut on the
cross. In a beautiful &ilk from Worth's
the material came diagonally across the
front, with deep point lace let in as an in
sertion. Sometimes the front is on the
cross as well as the liack, but in that case
there is generally a join down tue center.
Otherwise the frout is straight, and the
back on the cross.
With the present fad for blouses and
tennis shirts the variety in belts is' great.
A few new and taking examples are here
Quite a novelty Is the wicket belt in
black, tan or drab leather with nickel fit
tings. One to bring good luck is the horseshoe
belt of leather, with t his favorite emblem
and buckles and mournings in nickel.
BELTS FOR BLOUSES ASD TENNIS SHIRTS.
A very pretty tennis belt is of checked
silk and leather, the colors being gold and
black, cardinal and black or blue and black.
A new Swiss belt of black, tan or drab
leather shows a graceful perforated design
and a handsome lacing.
Novelties Iu Veils.
There are any number of novelties In
veils. Some are patterned at intervals
with butterflies, some with bees and some
with flies. They require to be put on very
carefully, and securely pinned to the hat,
so that there is no chance of their getting
askew. A rather pretty veil for a blond
to wear is powdered with little turquoise
spots. Russian net flecked with gold goes
nicely with a black and gold bonnet.
Chenille spots are wonderfully becoming,
but they are counted old style now. The
hunting crop and V patterns are both
novel. Colored veils are seldom worrv
