Republicans Have Troubles.
I The Finance Question Giving
j the Republicans No Ecd
Washington, August 2. 1897.
The republicans have other troubles
than those which will be made by the
new tariff ahead of them They are
going to have no end of worry over
finance in the near future. It is au
open secret that there i? a serious
difference of opinion in the Cabinet
on the advisability of committing the
administration and tbe party to the
retirement of the * greenbacks
and Treasury notes Sec. Gage,
as the personal representa?
tive ofthe banker's and ultra
gold men, will make a hard fight to
commit the administration and party
to the retirement of those notes, al?
though he knows as well as anybody
that no such legislation can be put
through during the life of the present
Congress, because of the silver ma?
jority in the Senate. Proof that Mr
McKinley is afraid of this question
may be found in the careful manner
in ?which he avoided committing him
self in his special message to Con?
gress asking authority to appoint a
currency commission. Mr McKin?
ley has been everything on the money
question. He voted for the free
coinage of silver in 1877, and as late
as the Fifty first Congress, be voted
and spoke for the W?ndom silver bill
and the Sherman substitute therefor.
He didn't want the gold standard
platform of last year's republican
convention. It is doubtful if he
knows what hts wants now He pre
fers to tiirn and to wait, but Sec.
Gage intends, unless he is prevented,
to submit to Congress in his annual
report the outlines of a bill that would
pei pe?nate the single gold standard
not because he thinks it will pass,
but because he wishes to commit the
administration and the republican
Members of the administration
still in Washington, are 3 somewhat
worried over the results of the new
tariff aa far as they have become ap
parent. They did not like the shut?
ting down of those big New England
cotton mills, and some of them went
as far as to say that the mill owners
should have been willing to keep on
running their mills, even if they lost
money, to help along the republican
party They like even lessthestory of
increased prices for almost every thing
but labor that comes from every di
rection Speaking of this phase of
the matter a prominent Philadelphia
business man, now in Washington,
said : "I hear that a general rise in
prices is to take place, and that peo
pie may prepare to pay more for their
dry goods, clothing, boots and shoes,
and all articles of household neces?
sity If this is going to be so. I
ptedict tremendous discontent and j
dissatisfaction among the people In ?
flush times there would be no corn- j
plaint, but when commodities rise in !
value and the volume of money is
not increased, the common people
are bound to suffer, especially when,
as now, there is no chance of an ad?
vance in wages. The upshot of the
matter will be a revolt against the
political pitty that passed the law
which tn;ide dearer all things the
consumer is bound to buy, without
doing anything to increase the abil?
ity of the consumer to purchase
the necessaries of life. If the repub
lican party hasn't a very tough row
to hoe, then I am utterly without
ability as a prophet."
Some ofthe civil service cranks:
are doing so much shouting over Mr
McKinley's extension of the civil
service law" to a few of thc; snia!l
Custom House employes, that they
have overlooked Iiis exemption from
those rules cf numerous important |
places in the Customs and Internal ?
Revenue servir'J His amendments |
to the rule.?, prohibiting the dis
charge of government employes, ex- j
cept for cause and only upon written j
Icharges, has. of course, been warm
j iy leceived in Washington, where ec
j many persons arc pecuniarily inter
; ested in a life tenure of office, hut if
the country endorses the idea I wi?i
i miss my guess. With a life tenure
: of office, there wiil necessarily come
? in a few years a civil pension list
I Both ideas are undemocratic ano un
American, creating as they do a
I privileged class. If it had not been
j for the social influences of Washing
I ton, ibere never would have been
j any civil service iaw. and when the
: same influences were brought to bear
I on Mr Cleveland to secure a life
; tenure for those in office, he positive
. ly refused to make the amendment
j that Mr McKinley has now made.
Senator Gorman seldom talks for
j publication, but without violating
j confidence, I can sa}' that he prepar
i ing t-> make the fight of his life to
j restore Maryland to the democratic
j column, and that he is absolutely
j confident that he will succeed and be
j reelected to the Senate.
Paying the Pensions.

WHEN THE TARIFF LAW BE?

The free law school in the Burd bui ding,

increase in its classes At the solicitation ot
! tbe students many of whom were on vacations

briefly the domain cf an important question,
and one of considerable present interest, in
replying to ? r quest for bis opioioc ?8 to
when tbe new tani bill went imo effect. He
explained to the class that be considered it
! took effect from the first minute of the day
on which it was signed by the President, ai d

the first volume of Lewis Blackstone at page
4S3, the subject of that text being &s to ?nen

ancient error, which is eeoeraliy accepted, is j
that an infant attains b:s majority tbe da* I

confusion of thought in reference to the sub

tween the last moment of the day preceding

moment of the anniversary iwelf. Hence, it
becomes necessary to say loosely that ibe

when, in fact, it is not so until me lust mo?
ment is past sod the first moment of the next
day is begun."
But tbe question, tr.e professor thought,
was settled by the common law, namely, in.it

RELIGION IN THE UNITED STATES.
Dr. Dollinger, the famous German
scholar, when asked if he would like to
visit the United States, said No, he
would Bot like to see a country where
they make a new church every week.
Apropos of this idea, a few statistics
will be of interest.
Tbe following ?3 very nearly correct:
Over 0,000,000 communicants. 1
Over 2,000,000 and less than 3,000,000. 1
Over 1,000,000 and ies3 than 2,000,000.3
Over 500,000 and less than 1,000,000 .5
Over 250,000 and less than 500,000. 4
Over 100,000 and less than 250,000.12
Over 75,000 and less than 100,000 .5
Over 50,000 and less than 75,000.G
Over 25,000 and less than 50,000.6
Over 20,000 and less than 25,000.6
Over 15,000 and les3 than 20,000.3
Over 10,000 and loss than 15,000.16
Over 5,000 and loss than 10,000.12
Less than 5,000.6o
Less than 1,000.31
Less than 100.3
Not reported. 1
The total number of denominations is 143;
the total mimicer of communicants, 20,613,874.
This analysis shows that, statistically
speaking, we need not take a large
number of our denominations seriously.
It is noteworthy that the five largest
ones comprised GO per cent of the com?
municants of the country, and the ten
largest 75 per cent. Only 26 of the total
number,had each more than 100,000
communicants. Dr. Dollinger might,
therefore, have plucked up some courage
even had he visited us. Another view
is still more reassuring. Reducing the
denominations to groups or families and
counting as one family each the 12
Mennonite denominations, the 17 Meth?
odist, the 13 Baptists, and so on, we
have only 42 titles instead of 143.
Dr. Can-oil states that tbeie are four
chief classes of causes that lead to di?
visions-viz: 1. Controversies over doc?

over moral questions. 4. Controversies
of a personal character.
