How the Wool Industry Has Bn
Injured by Promotion,
Iron and Steel Workers Refusa to Indorse
the McKinley BilU."Eleemy
Iji jj nary Qingorbroad."
New Tom:, June 21. The Timet'
special from Boston says that Sir.
Robert BleaKlo of Ilydo Park has
written Senator Carlisle, at tho request
of tho Wool Consumers' Association,
fTivlnr n nw ?i? n Y i ti r 1 inntiiifnnlitti.a
j ' ,"3 reasons why woof should ho placed on
mo treo list and why tho pending
Tatlff bill should not hecomo n law.
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. Hut I And
that in 18S0 tho number of falluroa
among wool dealers was 11; liabilities,
$2,20:1.000, assets, $1,381,000; wool
manufacturers. 01; liabilities, $3,110,
O00; asfo's, $5,051,000; total failure,
72. liabilities, $10,112,000; assets, 7,
CS.COO. This Is not very encoring of Itself.
"When compared with tho previous year
t It lets so. Then the number of
inlltirca among wool dealers was 8;
labilities, $630,000; newts, $$58,000;
wool manufacturers, 4U; liabilities,
$3,101,000, assets. $1,728,000; total, 57;
liabilities. $; assets, $1,070,000.
"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?"
New York, Juue SI. The Sun to.

A rross dispatch from Cincinnati
published In this morning's papers says:
CiNCiNNATr, Ohio, June 90. For some
time tbere lias been almost an open rupture
between w!,t are known a tins mlmlnUt ra
tion and lie antt-8linlnltratlon Itpubll
cino. The Kerferal appointments have been
particularly oIidoxIoim to the yomiirer l
mrnt In Itr publican polltlcr, and the breach
between the two fact Ions bas been gradually
Mural Halstesd, liefore being diol as
editor of the Cummer rial lictttlt, the K
publican orgmi of the State, in hU "(let

cotng lUt, leaving the etlltorUl Held, so
far as the Commrrditl (laztttt U concerned,
0ii to Deacon Mellaril Smith, was part of
a programme. .Mr. Smith, In an editorial
In the CiniiiHirriW Uatrtle to-day, has cr
ated no little Mnsatlon In political circle
by stating that the Information liail
reached htm direct that (leneral Harrison
would not tie a candidate for re-election to
the l'retideti:y.
1 be editorial is double-leaded, aud hai
caused all the creator surprise from tbi
fact tliat the Administration loaders here
hYe already taken a hand, and are hoping,
at the meeting of the county executive
committee on the 8Mb, to knock out the
"sutU" by bavlug that committee declare
In favor at making nomination by the
popular plsn and tlotag away with conven
tions. 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. We would
lint nave far to travel to Bud a prominent
person to whom Qencrat Harrison made
precUely that statement when he was 8t
a candidate, lie thought then be would
not Dud the Presidency a bed of rose. Iu
that respect be ha not been disappointed.
At least that is our opinion from things we
have beard. lie ha not pleased ever.vbo.lj .
It U doubtful whether be ha pleated him
m1( altogether. Yet HarrUou U a man who
woukl rather be right than be President,
He is a man who bas the courage or hi con
vkttou. That U far more than hi party
supporters have. That U mora thau iu
paiiy a a whole have. We do not be
lieve ilr. Harrison would d) a wrong
bine for the Pretbleney. He ha hi own
oplijon. These may not agree with erery
bedj, or with many people, but still he U
uu boseat and fearies wan, and he will
have Us way. We rep-t hi courage in
IhUt reeanl, and above all we respect bin
dc-lriuiii-atlou not to ud hi ojske with n
view u securing a renoiniuaUon and re
ekction. We are nut of those who think
ibe KtpuUieau party wilt, in the approach
ifg casapKsr; and the party of mot
UcporUnca to Harrison than be would
be to the patty. There are those who
think differently. Ail right. We do not
proiet to carry about us all the wisdom of
the party; but whatever view w sany eater
tain cf the way he has distributed omce.
aud of bis failure to please public men and
other people, we have respect for the ass
who eaa uuletly say in the uuJt of hi
U-f m, mid wis au the glory that i sup
posed to surround his poaftton, that he U
not a candidate for re-eJection. Further
more, no oa wtll charge dishonesty or pre
varieeiUMi to Mr. Haivteon. Be is a mm
of convfe-tkius, and he is also a man of
courage. For theee HUaliacation we re
spect fcuu. For like reason Us psopie of

Washington correspondent says: "The
eoloted politicians who came here from
tho Southern States are groatly dis
pleased with Postmaster General Wan.
sroakor, and they accuse him of gross
Incivility toward them on many occa
iloui. 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. Miller
was a little shy about calling upon the
Postmaster-General, because the latter
ou several former occasions Intimated
very clearly that he was
qCKaTS coming front that source. However,
Small insisted that It was desirable
that they should make an effort In be
half of their colored brother Crum.who
is an applicant for the Charleston poet
niaatersblp, so they called on the Post
master General.
"Arriving at the door leading to
Wsnamaker'g otftee, they ware in
formed that they must send in their
cards before obtaining adulation to the
inner chamber. This was an unusual
experience for ex Coagreeaotaa Smalls,
and he did not hesitate to any so in moat
eupliuiio terms, iillier reminded him

Allison's Dllsmma,
Nkw Yohk, June SI. 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.
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.
In the written statement Intended for
public circulation the Secretary neces
sarily was confined to the proprieties of
expiession In vogue In ofHelal life In
giving utterance to hU viewa.
But In tho Senate Appropriation Com
mittee it U said be waived tnU restraint
ami delivered a lecture on political econ
omy to Mr. Allison of Iowa that wm
not inteuded for the eye or the ear of
the public. Reference was made to this
last Kene in these dispatches to day. but
according to one of the auditors no ac
count yet published does the matter
justice. 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
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.
I wish you were not Mr. Secretary
arid wne ia thi Senate to raise your
voice agaiaat this MeK laky bill."
Mr. Blaine I wUh so. too. It hi the
auMt daacefous, if not the atoat ktf a
ateus, at ensure that was ever coacocted
by ay party. The aea who vote for
this biii will wreck the BeauMieaa
party. If I were ia the Samate I would
rather have lay right area lota out of its
socket than vote for this hill.

There Is now nothing to prevent

Mr. Hazard does not believe that the

that the Hill mine will be entered In

It Is now stated that the entombed

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. At Kast Capitol and
Georgetown stations the hours for de
livery will remain from 5 to 7 o'clock
p. m.

schooners were French, three or four
American end the others Newfound

fct their bolt nnd get out to the banks,
got Into the cove flrst. sad their nets
took up about all the choice places tot
catching the small bait-fish. When the
French schooners came In their master
ordered the Newfoundlanders to take
up their nets Immediately, resting on
their order on the treaty which gives
the French prior rights to shore ashing.
The Newfoundland men refused t.i
obey, nnd the French made an atta k
on their forces aud endeavored to drive
them away. After a lively tight, Iu
which club, oars, boat hooks aad aim
liar weapons were freely used, the
Ko one was killed or fatally woundel.
but there were many broken boaas sn.l
number of body bruised sailors. After
their defeat the French retreated up
the shore a short distance. Later the
Xewfoundlsaders having secured all
the bait they wanted, took up their nets
sad oa Thunday the French were n,U
