Tho absence of any mention of aux

and designed to prcservo the peaco In

of scaling operations, has caused some
anxiety, though recent advices from tho
American Capital have been of a tenor
to encourage tho belief that Mr. Blaine
lias taken due piecautlons against any
pioceedings likely to nipture tho nego

that tho modus liiendl tendcied to tho

to covci every reasonable wish and In

Mr. Duunell, from the Commttteo on

from the Government, and it was

A bill appropriating $00,000 for a de

passed, nnd tho House went Into Com

Tho House Committee on Patents to
day decided, by a vote of 0 to 2, to
make a favorable report on the SImrods
International Copyifght bill. The bill
contains a section providing for reci
procity in tho matter of copyright be
tween the United States arid foreign
The section is ns follows: "That this
net shall only apply to a cltien of n
foielen State or nation when such for
eign State or nation permits to citizens

The committee also agiectl to leport
favorably a bill amending the patent
laws. Tho bill provides that the pub

filing of an application and gives
the couits the right in patent cases to

The bill grants to aliens tho right to filo

Thero Will lie n Contest for tho
nance Committee Vacancy,
Speculation ns to the probability ot
the succession to Senator Beck on the
membership of the Commiltco on
Finance and the Committee on Appro
piiatlons continues active. Senator
Blackburn, who Is n member of
tho assignment committeo of
tho Demociatlc caucus, said to
day that ho would take no part
in tho selection of Senator Beck's suc
cessor on committeo places, but that he
hoped Mr. Caillsle would bo appointed
to the vacnncy on tho Committeo
on Finance. Ho ndmlts that
this is without pieccdcnt the commit
teo places going usually by piomotlon
and tho new members of tho Senate
being compelled to begin with tho less
important committees but lursays that
if Mr. Carlisle Is not appointed on this
committee It will not bo because of any
lack of effort on his part.
No ono questions Mr. Cnillslo's claim
to this placo on tho ground of ex
perience and ability, but so importnnt
a position is sine to have sovcral
claimants, nnd it will not bo given
out without a contest. Senator Vest,
who distinguished himself In the tariff
debnto in tlio last Congress, is strongly
backed for tho place, nnd sovcral otheis
will bo put in nomination
bcfoio tho assignment of tho com
mittee. Tho committee will meet lu
a day or two to dctcrmino upon its
courso of action. If tho liilc of
promotion is followed a general

will bo necessaiy. Tho present

Mr. Vnux chcci fully accepted the nomi

left no doubt ns to his attitude toward

to bold very posltlvo and interesting
lews on nil public matters of Import

somewhat moro fully his Ideas as to
tariff reform as Indicating his courso in
In answer to this tho Congressman
referred to a letter written by him In
June, 1888, just beforo President
Cleveland's rcnomlnntlon, in response
to a lequest from a number of leading
citizens that ho would express his views
on the "political questions which nro
now agitating the community, nnd
especially on the nbsorblng topic of
economic revenue reform, which has
been presented with such courageous
foice by Picsident Cleveland In bis late
message to Congress." ,
Mr. Yaux replied very fully, and he
said yesterday that he still held tho views
he then expressed. The following cx
tracts from this letter show that Mr. Ynu
has veiy decided views ns to tho neces
sity of tariff leform, nud that ho will bo
in full accord with his party In Congress
on this question. After a lcview of the
early legislation of the country, show
ing how the protective Idea was first In
troduced, Mr. Vaux wrote:
"Tho tariff, as it has been called, has
been so befogged In wouls that the
pcoplo seem to regard It ns a mystery
beyond their power to comprehend. It
is as easily understood as the first rulo
In arithmetic. A tariff is a tax that H

"i nnn legislation now is based on tho

This is tho ciTcct of cncouiaging classes)
nnd special intciests by the lawmaking
power of the people's representatives in
Congress, now ca'llcd, to delude and de
ceive, 'a tariff to piotcct American in
dustiy.' Tlio fraud in this tlllo perme
ates the legislation to justify it.
"The ceneinl wclf.uc suicly cannot be
fcciued by cieating monopolies to en
rich n class while the tax so Increased
is paid by the consumer. This favored
class of monopolists to day does not
amount to 1,000 individuals, who nic
the diicct Immediate beneficiaries of the
tax for piotection, while tbo 50,000,000
consumers suffer the buidcn of paying
the tnx. AVheie is the geneial welfare?
"These monopolists attempt to
fiiglitcn the industrial people by talking
about the pauper labor of Eui ope. It Is
known that tho protective legislation
has passed n Fedcrnl stntuto to prevent
monopolists from importing foreign la
bor to tnko the placo of strikers asking
incicascd wages fiom the monopolists,
as piomised them by a protective tntiir.
The lcmedy which theso toilers have
the menns to adopt is to strike for bet

tion which is one of the deludinc nnd
uufounded npologles for high piotectlve
' 'If tellable statistics could bo obtained
the monopolists fail to present them
it will be found that for n quarter of a
century of our piotcctivo tnriil system
stiiUes of the woikmen nio only the
continued piotests against the false as
stitlun that protection raises the wages
of those employed by tho monopolists.
Jt cannot uo disputed that the wages of
wothmen whoso labor is not under any
piotection arc higher than that of thoso
who nio paid by protected industiies.
It is ngainst th(s unconstitutional legis
lation thnt it is deemed Imperative to
awnken the conscience of the people.
"The protective legislation, both in
v iolntlon of constitutional authority and
by its tcims, is an indefensible extor
tion of money from tho people and a
culpable betrayal by its partiality for
classes of American fairness and
justice. Is it auy wonder that such
legislation creates monopolies? Is it
any wonder that theso monopolies create
dusts? Is It any wonder that, out of
indefensible extortion, tho people can
not hope for any consideration in the
operation of theso schemes ?

In concluding this interesting aud un

loy's Snobbishness Other News,
London, May 22. It may bo taken
as ono of the signs of the Hints that less
and less opposition Is shown to the pro
posal to disestablish tho English
Chinch. Tho lecent vote In Parlia
ment on the motion to disestablish tlio
Chinch of Scotland, the growing
strength from year to year of tho
Llbciation Society, which has this end
as ttsobcct for the entiio kingdom, the
compaiatlvc Indifference of tho Tory
press to the question, all tend to show
thnt disestablishment Is not without
hope of icallatlon. In fact It seems
possible that some day it may como as a
welcome telicf from tho grievances of
the present system.
One of tho most glaring anomalies of
tlio church endowment system is found
In tho payment of tho clcigy. This Is
aieal grievance, nnd ono under which
mnny a poor curate and his family are
stniving, wiiiie me norsc racing auu
hunting vicar, as likely as not, has his
town house In addition to his suburban
vicarage, and enjoys the pleasures of
the season while his poor curate admin
isters to the needs nnd docs the work of
the parish. Thcio nro about 80,000
clergymen or the established Church In
the kingdom, 11,000 of whom are cur
ates. Clerical salaries laugo from 15,
000 pounds, received by the Aichbishop
of Canterbury, down to 50 pounds,
which lcprcsents the allowance of the
humble cm ate.
The system has other faults. It is
impossible to displace a vicar except
for gross immorality or somo crime, and
the ropo which is nllowcd a rector Is of
wonderful length. A curate, however,
may be sent packing nt nny time, wife,
children and all. Ho Is treated as a
sort of superior servant and Is retained
only during his rector's pleasure, unless
ho be licensed, in which case ho can be
dismissed at the end of a year's engage
ment. "When a vicar wants a curate he
can obtain one on trial. The bishop of
the diocese grants permission for a
curate to try the place for threo months.
at the end of which time, If ho and tho
vicar aro ngreed, the bishop will license
him. But if the cuiate has proved un
popular, or worse still, too populai, tho
vlcnr is nt liberty to dismiss him with
less prospect thnn before of obtnlning
