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

There were undoubtedly many Repub

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

at the Walnut Street Theatre to protest
against the MeKinley Tariff bill.
It Is true that these meetings were ar

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.

not to Invite Proxy Halfonl, or whether
Proxy Halford took pains not to at

ably have had a very uncomfortable

VIRGINIA'S DEBT.
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."

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

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.
He have taken these steps, w have ob
tained this Information, and so on the
strength of it we jive this assurance: That
in the event of the election ot Ueueral Har
rison our organisation will, tor the nrst
lime in the history ot the international
T)pogrsphksl I'nlou, be ret agnized in the
sf poietssent of Publu. Printer '
KIlaw craftsmen, we have worked bard ia
this matter. .Yun Ju your pat.''
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.
The much booed for "event" came
to pass. Genera! Harrison wi eketed
President but the promised "goods
were not delivered." and the Interna

he has "clothed with link brief au

industrious printers for discharge.
Kever before ia one year have so
large a number of first class primers
been needlessly sacri&ced upon the un

This list does not include those who
were transferred from other divisions
and afterward dirt-barged.
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

that will no doubt destroy the system

'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."
