TUESDAY OCTOBEK 25. 1851
Bob Morrow, the San Francisco
millionaire and jury fixer, has had his
trial; .the jury "disagreed" eleven
for conviction, one for acqnittal.
That's the way: tho state needs twelve
men on a jury: the defense only needs
The prohibition amendment-in Ten
nessee is said by the press of that
state to owe its defeat to the Demo
crats, the result showing that only ten
out of fifty-sir Democratic counties
gave majorities for it, while twenty
two out of thirty-nine Kepublican
counties returned majorities in its fa
John Bright, the great English
commoner, in a recent letter to a friend
in Canada on the temperance ques
tion, says: "It seems that a severe
system of taxation isalmost the only
remedy that can be adopted with
much hope of success." He has not
much faith in the success of absolute
A Boston cigar manufacturer being
prosecuted recently for selling cigars
on Sunday in violation of the Sunday
law, raised the novel plea that tobac
co was defined in the pharmacopoeia
as a remedial drug, and the sale of
drugs was not prohibited on Sunday.
The court required him to pay a fine
of $10 and costs all tho same.
The general assembly, Knights of
Labor, killed tho usefulness of the
general executive board, for the com
ing year at least, in taking away tho
only source of revenue it had by vot
ing that it bo not compulsory on the
part of assemblies to pay their assess
ments to maintain the board. This
leaves tho board just where it was be
fore tho Eichmond convention.
The effect of a protective tariff as it
applies to the workingmen is shown
from the fact that while tho American
workingmen in nine states, under pro
tective tariff, have over $1,000,000,000
in savings banks, tho vastly greater
mass of workingmen in England, Ire
land, Scotland and "Wales, all working
under free trade, have only two-fifths
as much in the postal and savings
The Glasgow Herald, in acknowl
edging the completeness and fairness
of the defeat of the Thistle, advocates
the construction of a center-board
yaoht to compete for the America cup.
But whether this plan meets with ap
proval or not, adds the Herald, we
must on no account dream of giving
up the friendly contest which has
such a deep hold on tho lovers of this
noble and exhilerating sport on both
sides of the Atlantic
The correspondence between tho
department of justice and its officers
in Alaska, in regard to the realease of
British vessels seized during the sum
mer of 1886, for alleged violation of
the seal fishery laws, is made public.
The first order for the release of the
Canadian vessels at Sitka was sent by
telegraph, and the United States mar
shal at Sitka did not comply with it,
because he feared it was bogus. Tho
order was repeated by telegraph and
There is no reason for raising a
tariff wall that will bo absolutely in
surmountable by foreign goods. But
it should at least be so high that tho
foreign producer cannot como over it
without as much difficulty and ex
pense as home manufacture is com
pelled to incur by reason of tho se
verer conditions of home production.
So far the United States has succeed
ed in protecting itself in this regard;
its industries have not fallen into such
6traits as has tho British iron and
steel trade. There is always danger,
however, lest in the prosperity of the
present we forget the means by which
it has been attained. For that reason
this latest warning which comes to us
from England is worth thinking
about, especially as tho extremely
delicate work of making necessary
changes in our tariff without imperil
ling its beneficent effects is now upon
On the 15th inst. The Astorian
stated that "it will give as much space
to those desiring to give their views
on prohibition as the paper itself de
votes editorially to adverse argument
regardiug the advisability of such
movement" This we then believed,
and still believe to be fair. But if
our prohibition friends continue to
mistake words -for ideas and'spaco for
logic, The Astorian holds itself in no
way bound to make up the deficiency.
"We are in receipt of enough manu
script to set in type to fill three Asto
bians, all this in reply to a few terse
lines of editorial comment on the folly
of the prohibition attempt Boil
down, condense, squeeze together;
strike out all- your long adjectives;
choose between what you know to be
a fact and what is just simply yonr
private opinion. This is not a month
ly review: it is a daily newspaper and
no one cares for long articles: we are
in favor of prohibition of any article
over a column in length.
Quite recently there has come into
existence in this country a society
which proposes to unite the life in
surance feature with the co-operative
practice of the building association.
In brief, its objects aro that members
can purchase homes by making month
ly or quarterly payments for a term of
from five to twenty years, payment
being graded according to the age of
the person when becoming a member
and the length of time the payments
are to run. Should a member die be
fore the full number of installments
are paid, the mortgage is cancelled
and the house becomes the property
of theheirs,freo and clear of all claims,
in lieu of a fixed amount of insurance
money. In the plan of this society
there are no assessments upon surviv
ing members, the fund for the cancel
lation of mortgages at members' death
being created by the regular amount
each member is paying for this insur
ance feature. This society is thought
by its originators to bo an improve
ment upon tho building association.
Its plans are somewhat novel and
quite different in many respects from
the latter. But tho objects to bo
gained are similar in both, and a con
sideration of one makes a comparison
with tho other necessary.
