"The Tariff Issue Will Never Be Settled On the Lines Laid Down by MeKinley." A KOTK OF WANNING FnOMrIIUM)Rtt'lltA,Tltn"FtmTMAXU l'Acrvitr.No CITY IX TUB CXtOJf." Ftom tht f;rtnia Tdtpraph (Rep,) The country will not full lo note with more than passing Interest thegrcat meet ings hold In this city yesterday to oppose the passage of the JIcKlnlcy TnrlfT bill. Philadelphia Is the first manufacturing city In the Union. It Is the first He publican city, also, giving the largost majorities for the Republican ticket. On national Issues It has never broken away from the party since Its organiza tion. It la tho chief cltv of the State which is more largely Interested In the tariff than any other commonwealth. For a quarter of a century Philadelphia has been regarded ns n VEItY GltlltAt.TAn OF PIIOTF-CHON', even tho one Democratic Congressman assisting to represent It In tho House was known as n protectionist, and re fused to follow tho lead of his awocl atcs In the matter of the tariff. There never wcro so many of tho residents of this city practically Interested In tariff legislation ns at mis time. In view or all these circumstances the mcctlnors of yesterday were peculiarly slgnlllcanl. they ought to create an Impreston. deep and lasting, and they certainly will In one way tit least. The SIcKinley bill has beon prepared by the leaders of the Itepubllcan party In the House, passed by that bod v under political pressure, and stands before the country as a distinctive party incisure. Is It not surprising, then, that such n demonstration as has been mado right here should occur at tula time.' Of course, this waa distinctly a Democratic alfalr. Thoae who called these meet ings, managed them and addressed them were Democrats, but uo one will dispute the fact that there was present A LAIUtK SYMIUTIIKTIC EI.KMKNT OF IHFFKHKNT UOMTICAI. FAITH. There were undoubtedly many Repub licans who listened to the ringing speeches of Jtessrs. Sprlnirer. RrecKla ridge, Ilynum and others. How far they were Influenced no man can tell: but pne thing is certain, namely, that the leaven Is working In every direction. Mr. Cleveland's campaign of education Is having a wide effect. This must be plain to the dullest observer. The peo ple are thinking about tills tariff matter as they never have before. They are in a very Inquiring state of mind. They want to know all the facts, and It U ivldeat that they propose to be gov erned very largely hereafter by the facts, ami not by preconceived theories, ptofessloaally declared by public serv ants, who liml this the sure pathway to preferment awl position.

It U never fe to underestimate the strength of an enemy, ami for that rea son this is bo time to laugh at the meet ings held yesterday in Keusingtos awl at the Walnut Street Theatre to protest against the MeKinley Tariff bill. It Is true that these meetings were ar ranged by free traders; it la true that antl JIcAdoo of New Jersey add rasseil the gatherings; but the enormous at tendance of worklngmen stowed there was something In tH topics touched upon that PhiUdeipitU's toilers re gsided ns of the highest important, ami that "something" was the (ilea for free raw materials.

WANT TO COME IN. Tlie Annexationist L'anilliUte lu tVlml or. Out., Score a Victory. Nkw Yoiik, June 0. The Huu't special from Windsor, Ont says: A Parliamentary election in Canada, In which the annexation question was a feature, was held yesterday In the North Essex Riding, of which this town Is the largest portion. Sol. White, the foremost annexationist of Canada, was one candidate, opposed by Francis Cleary, a strong Catholic, and Cos pa id Pueaud, a native Frenchman. Religious questions, race prejudices and sectloual hatred were all Involved against White, but in spite of it alt he carried the Riding by over 000 plurality. His victory Is all the more significant, as he was not the nominee of any party, but stood alone on his record and well known principles. White is the chief of the Wyandotte Indians, but to all Intents and purposes he Is a while man and a successful lawyer. His ad herents are holding high carnival in rejoicing over his election.

Politicians are discussing with some Interest w hether Quay took pnlns not to Invite Proxy Halfonl, or whether Proxy Halford took pains not to at tend. If he had lieen there he would prob ably have had a very uncomfortable time, for the one thing on which all re ports of that meeting agree Is on the course of comment upon the Adminis tration. Either Proxy Halfonl would have had to listen In uncomfortable silence or would have had to flbt against overwhelming odds.

A New Scheme Looking to 1(3 Final Settlement, In Which 1,'x-t'renlitont Gtevolnml nmt Other niMlticuUheil Tenon Have A creed In Act n Arbitrator. m A special dispatch from Richmond, Vs., to the Baltimore fun (today's is sue) says: The announcement mado In tho Fun' dispatches today from New York of a new and Important scheme looking to the settlement of the State debt attracts considerable attention In financial and olllclal circles here. Tho correspondent of the Hun this afternoon called at tho executive mansion to get Governor McKInney's views on this sub ject, but ho was sick and could not be seen. The scheme Is regarded by many as having mauy things to commend it to the State authorities. A holder of more than three and a half million dol larssomething like one seventh of the outstanding bonds of the State today said: "I have read the scheme out lined by the Sih. I have no Informa tion about the matter, but I have known for some time past that negotiations of some character were going on. THF. DKIIT COMMISSION appointed at the last session of the Legislature to receive propositions from the bondholders has never yet had a meeting. They will probably do so In a month or so. Under the provisions of the act creating this commission little or no latitude Tsglven them to act. They are bound by the terms of the Rlddleberger bill, and before any pro position can be received by the com mission the law prescribes that those tendering it shall give security for a million dollars. Some financiers here think that If the scheme outlined In the Sun Is carried out it will not be sub mitted to the commission, but directly to the Legislature. In that event, or soon as it Is ready, those acting in the matter would present it to the Governor and ask him to convene the Legislature. The pamphlet giving the whole de tails of the plan for placing the hold ings of the State ootids has been re ceived by a prominent lawyer here. In a letter accompanying this Mr. Hugh R. Garden, one of the committee, says: "The plan Is for the creditors to deposit their bonds or agree among themselves on a bask of settlement, within the the revenues of Virginia," which Is to be submitted to and approved by the adlaory board mentioned In to-dav's Sun. This statement add: "Inasmuch as the committee will offer to surrender the bonds the moment the STATE ACCEVTS THE rKOiHterTlOK a miscarriage of the settlement U liu possible, fly the terms of agreement under which it k proposed to pool the debt, those representing one-half of the whole debt can control the conditions or scheme. In other words, it ts agreed that a majority shall direct, absolutely, the negotiations. The bonds are to be deposited with the committee, ami in their hands, and therefore under their control."

Protasl of the International Typofrapkieal Union Against the PernisioHS PftHey Puraued. Editor CrHie; During the lait two years of Public Printer llenedict's ad- mlnlttrntlon the Crnflmtin, then the "ofllclah paper of tjic International Ty pographleal Union," had much to say condemnatory of "political discharges" from the Government Printing Oltlce, and loudly called upon the union print ers of the country to aid It in its lauda ble efforts lo overthrow "the system, the damnable system," tinder which n large number of competent, faithful, Indus trious union printers had been unjustly discharged at the behest of partisan) within and without the olllce. The following extracts from different Issues of tho Cruftman In 1837 and 16S8 show how earnest Its editors and proprietors appeared to be to curb the llAIWtrTY M THK " POLITIC! N" and to eliminate politics from the great workshop. We have opposed, Mtterh, persistently ami uiilllnctilmdy, the wholesale illscborire of worthy ami competent employes by Pub lic Printer lletietllct. " When In the summer of m' Public Printer Hounds bad about determined on a similar course we took the same position, N msn can be a friend of lalwr who dis charges one set of men and hires another to ftltj the demandsof politician. For tbl offrti the Crtiflmian will oppose Mr. llcnedlct and all others who pursue like method. We know that good union men everywhere will sustain u, ami alt u In forefne the (iovernmetit Printing Office front the domain of politic and so changing the existing practice there that the only "lnrlnei.ee "a nun shall need to secure ami retain a situation will be competency and tinlonUm. A the surest and afet way to secure this, It tiali lie our aim, at Indicated In our last Itatie, to foster a sentiment among our craftttneuthat shall culminate lu the de mand that 11 1 a practical union printer licrtalter be appointed to the nonltlon of Public Printer. Hut whether tbl shall be Mcured or not, we desire to impress upon the das of craftsmen referred to our un alterable devotion to the principle that competent union workmen shall not either now July, 1(7,1 or In ll0, or at any other time be discharged while there Is work lot them to do.

Lend tie a hand, Join with us In the ef fort, and the system shall be burled so deep that it can never be reaurrected. Vigorous a was our protest lu l'i, em phatic as it I now July, ls7J, It will be no lea so If at a later wlo.1, while we have access lo the rolutnu of Influential paper, a new Public Printer shall endeavor to dis charge Arm new employes from employ ment without tause or without auy reason except that they "have been there Ions enough," or that they have aflillated with one or the other of the two great parties. Well, at the proper tlnte the "demand that only a practical union printer be appointed to the position of Public l't Inter" was made. Typographical Unions, the American Federation of Labor, and Knights of Labor, joined the CrufUmai. in asking for recognition for organized labor in the appointment of Public Printer, and finally, through the columns of that paper, in a double leaded editorial in tiie issue of October 37, ltSc3, about one week before the elec tion the ptlnters of the country received the following cheering information: We are now in a poaitton to assure our friends that in certain contingencies we shall not be disappointed lu receiving the orBciai leeegnltktn which all union printers were eonttdeat would have been votuh safod us in 1Hs5 after Grover Cleveland had been placed in power by the action of the members of No. t. - We do not hesitate lo aay that the assurance would not be given by ua had we not taken steps to obtain Information tn whkh to base It.

JMoeally the "part" that "fellow craiumen were expected to play wax to march to the polls ami vote lor "the election of General Harrison," and probably a number who would sot otherwise have dose so with lite doubk-leadcd "assurasvee" staring them in the face, played their part to the satkfec (ton of the editors and propri etors of Use orttcial paper.

About 00 ner cent, of the above gen tleman are Democrats, and n majority of them were amone the very best workmen In the division. Inasmuch a the force In the Specification Itoom ha been increased nbottt IS percent, during the year. It will readily be seen that there was no reason for any discharge In that division except the very poor one that thu situations were wanted for others who nfllllate with the parly tn power. The same Is true as regards tho balance of the olllce. About 900 ptlnters In all have been discharged during tho year. During Public l't Inter llenedict's ad mlnlttratlon the system of appointing as copy-holders persons not practical printers became obsolete; wages wore paid cvory two weeks Instead of monthly; thirty days' leave with pay was granted to employes; piece com positors were given "blank pages," which had never been allowed liefore; Idle printers without political lnlltience, IWAIIDI.KM OF t'OLITKAI. AFFIMV TIONS, were employed as "extras" in the Specification Itoom whenever their service were needexl to keep the hours of labor at eight per day and to nil the plates of regular employes iA;if on leave with pay: and, last but not least, Ihe resolution of the Union limiting the hours of labor of Its member to eight per day was promptly and cheerfully carried Into execution, ami for the first time In Its history, notwithstanding the fact that there Is an eight-hour law upon the statute books, the eight-hour principle was established In the Gov ernment Printing Olllce. At the close of the first year of 3Ir. Palmer's administration we discover that the eight hour work day is a thing of the past: that the thirty days' leave with pay has been reduced to twenty six; that the old system of appointing as copy holders those who are not print ers has been revived, that the Leave of absencc law has been misconstrued and violated: that the employment of "ex tras" without political Influence has been prohibited; that a"sub." on the Itee oni must now serure, through political Influence, an appointment as a "substi tute compositor" before he Is permitted to pick up the crumbs that fall from the regular's table, and that the . "DAMXUI.E SVsTEM" which was so "bitterly, persistently and unflinchingly" denounced by the Craft Man for several years, anil which was unanimously condemned by the Inter national Union at Its last session, has been operated more remorsely than erer before during the past year. Let the 1. T. U. send a committee of Investigation to Washington with power to summon witnesses and admin ister oaths, and they will secure evidence that will no doubt destroy the system com plained of. 1'hikteu. 1- an , MORE HARLAN BLOODSHED.

Jim IUy ner and Ed Pace were instantly hilled on Tuesday in a fight with a sheriff's posse in Harlan County, one of the few ltepublican strongholds of the South. The trouble grew out of another out break in the infamous Turner-Howard feud on iioadsy. when a number of the Turners left in two wagons en route to Icounte County to move Miles Turner to Harlan. They took with them, a Winchester apiece. At John Carter's, a mile from Tur ner's father,', they shot Carter's dog and find their guns indiscriminate) v.

Injustice in the Manner In Which the Daly U Levied on Them. I'riilt tiiiiiorler g.ijr the lncretml Duty Will Itrlvn Tliem tint ot llimlnem Stnlne tYlll.HitfTer. 'I am opptweil to doubling the duty on oranges and lemons," said President Louis Content' In of the Italian Cham ber of Commerce and fruit importer of New York to a Citrnc reporter in lite lobby of the Arlington. "And It will be a great mistake for the Senate to agree to the fruit section of the MeKinley bill. I have heard a number of prominent llepttbllcans say that If the Increased duty on orange and lemons becomes a law Massachu setts and Pennsylvania will go Demo cratic. Now, I hear some of the fruit dealers say that the orange growers of California and I'lorlda would reap more protection If the Government should levy a duly on banana, which are now on the ftee list. The Importation of bananas Is steadily on the Increase, ami as they are cheaper than oranges why, of course, the jioorer cla8 consume most of the. bananas. Oranges are bought by the wealthy ami middle classes. The Mediterranean fruit Is sold by peddlers, whereas our orangos are sold almost exclusively In the store. A BLOW XT MMSE r.CTOMKS. Another Injustice we wanted remedied Is the manner in which the duty Is levied. On Spanish oranges the duty Is specific, and on the others It Is i ralortnt. The duty should lie In all cases specific. Now, It's not only the fruit lmKrters that are protesting against this Increased duty, but the fruit box manufacturers In Maine are up tn arms. They say that the Increased duty will drive them out of buslne, because the duty win practically sunt out the foreign fruit, ami you know the Maine factories supply nearly all the boxes lu which the foreign fruit U hipped. "V e sincerely hope that the Senate Fi nance Committee will see this question In the proper light and la the present tariff on oranges and lemons remain as It Is. It would be eruel to make It almost Im possible for the )ioor man ami hk fam ily to enjoy such healthful fruit, ami by doubling the duty the Republicans vir tually enjoin the poor people from buying oranges ami lemons. And Cal ifornia ami Florida would not be bene fitted by the tariff." A PRQSUlflKT DMOCrUT Killed I.- Ill Sua u a Dispute Atmut a Carpet, HinoK, S. P., Junefl.
