Ho compares, with full statistics, tho history of tho legislation for tho silk and wool Industries, greatly to tho dls ndvantaco of tho latter. Ilo says tho legislation has been bad for tho sheep farmer, for tho consumer and for tho manufacturer, and that It even Injures tho wool raiser. "Wo wcro assured two yoars ago," ho says, "that tho success of tho Re publican party, with its high protcctlvo platform, would revive nil tho drooping branches of business and make every one happy. Especially was this to be eo In tho woolen Industry.

"InlflhOthe number of failure was 15 per cent, greater, the liabilities 150 per cent, greater, and the assets less than half as much. If this la the result when Increased tax on wool Is only threatened, what will happen whonsuoh tax Is an actual fact?" "VICTUALS, TOO 1" IUnWSON'8 aiFT'COTTAaX ATCAI'K HAY J'OIST WKM, I-rtOVISIONKI).

It has been tacitly understood that they were aetlog under lottructlou from Wasblugton, and for that reason Deaeon Smith's editorial cannot be understood. Following Is the full text of the edi torial taken from the Cummertitl UnutU of the 30th: The report reaches us that President Ilar risou incidentally remarked be would not be a candidate for re-ekction.

A few days ago three South Carolina Republicans, one white man ard two colored men, called at the Foetoirlce Dtpartmtnt to consult Mr. Wanamakeron the subject of removlnj tho Democratic postmaster at Charleston and appointing a colored Republican. "The trio consisted of ex Congress man Bob Smalls, Collector of Customs at Beaufort, Tom Miller, contestant for Congressman Elliott's seat In Congress from the Seventh Carolina District, and United State Mar.Ual Cunningham, one of the wealthiest and moat popular white Republicans In South Carolina.

This was an unusual experience for ex Coagreeaotaa Smalls, and he did not hesitate to any so in moat eupliuiio terms, iillier reminded him ibat it was one of the peculiarities of the Postmaster General, as far as eol ortd Republicans are coaeer&ed.

A dispatch from Washington In today's 2rwW soys: What was known only to a few ycslordny became very generally known to-day, end that is that the Administra tion has openly arrayed Itself against tho passage of the McKinley Tariff bill. When the W'ay9 antl Means Commit tee was preparing the bill Secretary Blaine endeavored to Impress upon ita members tho folly of putting sugar on tho free list. The excuse was that tho agricultural Interests of tho country demanded it and tho Farmers' Alllanco just then was more influential than tho argument of Mr. limine. Subsequently Mr. Illtt, chairman of the House Com mittee on Foreign Affairs, Introduced n joint resolution Intended to give tho President power to make substantial re ciprocity treaties with tho Contral and South American countries. Tho same views expressed to mem bers of tho Ways and Moans Commit tee had also been repeated to members of the Senate Finance Committee. IMtEStJJEIiTIAt, ABflllATrOXS. The Ways and Moans Committee had but one possible Presidential candidate lu Its midst. The Flnanco Committee has two at least, and to be Inlluonced by anjthlnir Mr. Blaine might siy would be to strennthen the statesman firm Maine and diminish the polble chances of the Ohio and Iowa aspirants ft r a Presidential nomlnutlou. Finally It became necetstry m evl dtnee of kok1 faith on the part of the Administration to show that It did not approve the frco mirar platform, it so happened that Secretary Blaine had op portunity of airing the views of the President yesterday In three different ways In bis letter to Congress, in the reply to the telegram from the Millers' Convention nt Minneapolis and In a speech before the Senate Appropria tion Committee. Mr. lllalne had op poitunlty of repeating on the same day In three different ways the objections the Administration holds agaliMt the McKinley bill.

The question under considera tion was the necessity for increased ap propilalion In completing the record of the Pan-AinericAn Coiigreas. Senator Hale of Maine, who Is oa the committee, said something which drew out Mr Blaine, aad he proceeded in the most impaasioeed manner and with much of his old-time fervor aad eloquence to tell the committee what in his judgment would he the effect of the passage of the McKinley Tariff UU. It goes without saying that Mr. Alli son did not like the idea of being lashed as a member of the Appropria tion Committee for what ha bad done as a member of the Finance Cotandttea, and he rather reseated being called to account for the result of iu dalibera tion. The Deaiocratic member of tbeeotn mi tit e, Mr. BWklium. was delighted with the fvae of Mr. Blaine' view and at an opportune moment ha is reported to have said.

Some weeks ago there was presented to Postmaster Roes a petition, signed by very many representative business men, requesting that the hours of Sunday de livery at the carriers' windows tie changed from uveninit to morning hours. After consultation with the De partment olrlclale. Mr. Roes deemed best to have the carriers' windows ojven to-morrow (Sunday), and on every suc ceeding Sunday during the summer, at least, from 9.30 to 11 o'clock a. in , In stead of from 5 to 7 p. m., as heretofore. One leading consideration which hae ltd to this chance is the fart that, under the present system, the carriers are compelled to remain nearly all day Sunday iu the Poatomce, preparing their mail for delivery In the evening, w Idle the proponed system will permit them to have Sunday real after 11 o'clock a. m.
