Pope Leo XIII has shown the deep in
terest he feels :n the World's Fair and in
America by deciding to exhibit at the fair
some of the rare treasures of art, litera
ture and history which the Vatican con
tains. Archbishop Ireland, now in Rome,
has cabled this information a- d asked for
6paceforthe exhibit. The Vatican con
tains a collection of art and other treas
ures which cannot be duplicated atid
which are priceless in value. The exhibit
will, no doubt, contain many of the most
interesting of these treasures, and will at
tract, perhaps, more attention than will
any other one display at the exposition.
This action by the pope will certainly tend
to increase greatly the interest taken in
the fair by all Catholic countries, an)
thus render it a greater and more success
ful exposition, and one in which the entire
world will take pride. To Hon. Thomas
B. Bryan and Mrs. Potter Palmer, as wcil
as to Archbishop Ireland, is due much

The two-thirds rule which governs
democratic national gatherings, also
makes it imperative that practical unani
mity shall prevail before a choice is
mide. It is not likely, therefore, that
a nomination will result on the first or for
several ballots. While it is generally
conceded that a majority of the delegates
fayor the candidacy of ex President
Cleveland, it is dnubtful whether a suffic
ient number will vote for h m to give him
a fare, to say nothing of a two thirds
majority. H19 own state being instructed
and demanding the nomination of another
great democrat, has and 6bould have a
depressing effect on Cleveland enthusiasts
elsewhere. If the New VTork democracy
was solid for Mr. Cleveland, or if any
thing like convincing proof could be fur

however, it is hardly probable that tbe

Senator Hill is looming up as a font!

more strength than anticipated. It is a

Hon. Owen Seott Points Out the Fttllaey
of McKinlcy's Statement.
But the apologists for this system of
spoliation say that the foreigner pays
the tax. The supreme court of the United
States, in tli- case of Brown verms The
State of Maryland, unanimously an
nounced "that a duty on imports is a
tax that is paid by the consumers."
Major McKinley, in his canvass, said;
"We tixk the tax off of sugar and
now you tlin"t have to pay it. See how
we have relieved you from taxation by
taking the tariff off from raw sugar."
In another breath this same distin
guished gentleman says:
"The foreigner pays it you don't."
Now let us see who pays the tax.
Marshall Field & Co. imported $1,400
worth of pearl buttons and jiaid at Chi
cago (8,006 duty. This $4,400, with the
cost of transportation added, was the
cost to them and upon which they hased
their sales of this article which went to
sonsnmers and was paid by them. W uld
the button makers pay 8,000 tax to get
$1,400 for their products?
Armour imported ;X,000 pounds of
tin and paid !. 700 as duty. Ninety-nine
per cent tf this, as provided in the Mc
Kinley law. was refunded to him, lie
cause the goods which this tin inclosed
were exported. If the foreigner paid the
tax on the tin, why throw the govern
ment's money away by refunding it to
Mr. Armour: Mr. McKinley introduced
a bill in this house last session to appro
priate $25,000 to pay taxes on plate glass
for lighthouses to he built by the gov
ernment. If the? foreigner pays the tax,
why wa.s this necessary?
The Standard Oil company paid al
most a million dollars duty on tin im
ported in 1800. Ninety-nine per cent, of
this was refunded to this giant corpora
tion under the provisions of the M. Kin
ley law. If the foreigner paid the tax
on this tin. why was it necessary for con
gross to provide for throwing away so
large a sum tf the people's money? it is
claimed by the friends of protection that
they have saved to the people of the
country ofi.OtMl.tHHl hy taking the tariff
off of sugar. If the foreigner pays the
tax. why take it off.- It would certainlv
be good business sense to allow the for
eign manufacturers of sugar to pay into
the federal treasury this vast sum of
money each year almost half enough to
pay tbe pensions of the disabled and
WOOnded soldiers of our country.
In this house, after the Chicago fire,
General Logan introduced a hill to ad
mit buHdfag materials to that strit ken
city free of tariff. If the tax was not
paid by the consumer, how would it bene
fit the Chicago people who were trying
to rebuild their city from the ashes that
were left by the great c mfiagratkm? The
earnest protest from the lum her barons
induced congress to exempt lumber from
this provision. All other building ma
tt rials were made free under the belief
that the consumers were being benefited
by taking off the tax. The modern the
ory "f protectionists is that the people of
Chicago were not benefited ill this, but
that the foreigners who Bhipped their;
iron and lead and other materials that
were used in constructing the magnifi
cent temples of trade and commerce to
make the wonder of the Nineteenth cen
tury were tile lieneticiai it s by this spe
cial provision. Similar requests were
asked in regard to other cities that have
been unfortunate. At a time when East
IKirt, Me., burned down the gentleman
from Maine. Mr. Botitelle. a memb r of
this house, and insisting that the LirifTis
not a tax. introduced a bill to take build
ing materials into that city free. It wits
disrovered. though, that the foieigner
paid the tax. and his bill did not pass.
Mr. Wanamaker, the present postmas
ter general, with others, brought a suit
against the government to recover le
tween lis imio.OoO and $10,000,000 of rev
enues. If Mr. Wanamaker has returned
this to the foreigner it has not been re
ported. Neither has he paid it back to
the country merchants who sold to the
consumers. In this case the people had
to pay this tariff twice once when they
bought the goods and once when the
government reimbursed Mr. Wanamaker
out of the treasury from the niotievs
they had paid. It would seem from this
that the postmaster general did not ap
preciate tbe fact that the foreigner paid
the tax. All this shows conclusively,
and the instances might be multiplied,
that the tariff is a tax and the consumer
pays it. Congressional Record.

McKinley Hatea Cheap Cattle.
Among the changes in the tariff which
the McKinley bill has made, that upon
live cattle is csjiecially noticeable. The
old rate was 20 tier cent, ad Valorem, the
new rate being ten dollars per htad on
all cattle more than 1 year ol(?. Per
haps theframerof this item had in mind
importations from Canada, or possibly
high priced bulla from foreign ports, but
he could scarcely have remembered that
nine-tenths of all our imports of cattle j
are from Mexico. An average herd of
Mexican cattle of the aLre specified would
not, oe worm, aenvereel on this sitle of
the Rio Grande, over seven dollars ter
head, while the duty would be ten dol
lars iter head. In other words, the im
porter of cattle from Mexico cemld sell
his cattle, when he has delivered them on
this side of the line, for about seven
tenths enough to pay the duty. This ap
plies to an average herd of mixed cattle.
A herd of all beeves would be worth
much more, while a herd of all yonng
females would be worth much less.
When this provision went into effect
it caught many Texans with hundreds
of thousands of cattle in Mexico, where
they had gone for pasturage. The men
were many of them ruined because this
tariff prohibits them from seeking
United States markets, aud thev have
been obliged to rely on the Afexican
markets which have never been very
good and are now much depressed
owing to United States prohibition.
Texas has been for many years over
flowing with cattle, and many of her cit
izens have been in the habit "of goiu to
Mexico with their herds for pasturage,
bringing back the beeves and paying 20
per cent, ad valorem, but at present a
nerd of beeve would bring but a trifle
more than the duty. American Wool
