llAi.xiMonE, Md July 15. The
conference of Maryland tariff reform
clubs will hold three sessions to-day In
tho Interests of tariff reform, and Inci
dentally to boom Cleveland for the
Democratic nomination. This latter
they do not admit, as tho or
fiantzatlon Is composed of a number
who do not favor Cleveland's nomina
tion. They aro in lino with Clove
land, however, on tho subject of tariff
reform, because he Is tho recognized
leader of tho Idea.
A great many very Influential men
gathered together this morning to at
tend tho business meeting. Alfred

porary president. After tho credentials

with all who aro Interested In tho
movement I am exceedingly gratified
with tho evidences constantly presented
cf activity nnd organization In aid of
tariff reform within your State, and I
hope that the proposed convention will

of tho cause."
The sentiments of the letter mot with
lientty approval. John DoWItt 'War

Nnvr Y'onic, July 15. Concluding a
long special from Washington, the Her
ald correspondent says: The Issue Is
evidently joined, nnd the question now
is, will the friends of Mr. Itlalno In tho
Senate stand by tho Tariff bill and do
inand its amendment and fulloet con
slderatlonT That this Is a duty Is clearly
tho view of Mr. Illalne's friends, and
was forcibly outlined to day by that
eminent authority on parliamentary law,
Senator Carlisle Ho says:
"What the Democrats have sained
by the taking up of the Tariff bill was
this they hava given those Republi
cans who arc at heart opposed to the
Federal Election law a good oxctiw for
preventing Its consideration without
having to array themselves against their
party. For should n move now be
made under tho inspiration of a caucus
to diop the Tariff bill temporarily nnd
force the passage of the Election bill
those Republican Senators who are ad
verse to It can very properly oppose
such a policy on the ground that the
tariff question Is of paramount Impor
tance to tho business Interests ot the
country, and that being under consid
eration It would be unwise and Impo
litic to drop It for a purely political
Mr. Carlisle called the attontlon ot
his colleaEiies In the Senate to this
view, and they one and all agree that
the Turlll bill Is now the forlorn hone
of all Republican Senators who will
not wear tho collar ot scheming and
ambitious political leaders.
Upon the outcome of this tariff Issue,
I am Informed, depends the future ot
Mr. Illalne's connection with this Ad
ministration. Ho has suffered an In
dignity which no honorable and high
minded man can silently endure, but
reasons of a personal character solely
compel him now to remain In ottlce un
til the last effort for vindication has
bees exhausted. When he retires he
will do so untrammeled by otUclal eti
quette and without restraint as to the
manne r In which he may use the tacts
he no w holds for his own defense.
ANOTHER BLAINE LETTER.
UK MAKBS SOME I'LAIK STATKMEKT ON
TUB SVOAlt QUS8TI0K.
Senator Frye's mall yesterday after
noon contained a letter from Secretary
Dlalne, written at Oar Harbor, under
date of Friday last. It says: "I have
just received Intelligence from the
highest commercial authority In Ha
vana, that American flour, under the
new duties imposed by Spain, cannot
reach the Cuban market under a cost ot
$11.46 per barrel, counting the shipping
price In New York at i.SO per barrel.
Spain holds the market for herself, and
is able to send European Hour at a price
whleh totally excludes the American
flour from the markets of Cuba and
Porto Rico. Other articles of Atserieaa
growth are likewise taxed by Simla to
the point of prohiUiion. TuU one
sided commerce will seriously Injure
the sldppieg routes whkk are still la
American hands, largely it aot exclu
sivity. "It would certainly be a very extra
ordinary policy ou the part of the Gov
ernment, j ust at this time, to open our
market without charge or duty to the
enormous crops of sugar raked in the
twoSpaaJek Islands. Cuba and Porto
Hieo furnish the United States with
nearly or quite one-half of the sugar
which we consume, and we are far
larger consumers than any other nation
in the world- To give a free market to
this iwnvenae product of the Spanish
plaaiatiosM at the moment Spain is ex
cluding the products of American
farms from her market, would he a
policy as unprecedented as it would he
"Our trade with the American re
publics, as well as with the Watt India
Islands, has been for yean in a moat
unaatiafactory munition The ftjpre
gale balance of trade with all Latin
America is heavily against us. A aln
gle illustration wfll suntce. Since we
repealed the duly oa eoCee, in 1673, we
have imported the product of Brazil to
the extent of fftit 8ftS).(W0, and have
sold to her rnly $lM,135,uflu of our
own products. The dilereace tM,
71,U00 we have paid in gold, or its
equivalent, and Brazil has expended the
vast sum la markets of Euroue. You
can readily see how iufcreei the result
would have been if. in return for the
free admission of Brazilian coffee in
our market, we had exacted the free
admission of certain products of the
raited States la the Brazilian market.
To repeat this error, with sugar (to am
amount three times at Urge as wish
coCee), will clow all opportunity to es
tabUah sttrtytotity of trade with Latin.
"The charge agalaat the protective
uulUy whkh has liiured it moat is that
tu benefit go wholly to the manwfnct
uar aud the lapttnttrf. asd sot at attto
the farmer- You and I watt know thai
this is not true, hot still it U the matt
plausible and. therefore, the uwL hurt
ful arguuumt wade b the free trailer.
Here to a opportunity where the farmer
may be beneflted primarily, undenia
bly, richly benefited. Here Is an op
portunity for a Republican Congress to
open the markets of forty minimis of
people to the products of American
farms. Shall we seize the opportunity,
or shall we throw It away?
"I do not doubt that In many respects
the Tariff bill pending In the Senate Is
a jnst measure, and that most of Its pro
visions are in accordance with the wise
policy of protection. But there Is not
a section or a line In the entire Hill that
will open a market for another bushel
of wheat or another liarrel of pork.
Sucar Is now placed on the free list
without exacting Important trade con
cessions In return, we shall close the
door for a profitable reciprocity against
ourselves. I think you will find some
valuable hints on this subject In the
President's brief message of June 10,
with as much practical wisdom as was
ever stated in so short a space.
"Our foreign market for breadstuff
grows narrower. Great Britain Is ex
erting every nerve to secure her bread
supplies from India, and the rapid ex
pansion of the wheat area in Russia
gives us a powerful competitor In the
markets of Europe. It becomes us,
therefore, to,usc every opportunity for
the extension of our market on both
of the American continents. With
nearly one hundred million dollars'
worth of suzar seeking our market
every year, we shall prove ourselves
most unskilled legislators If we do not
secure a largo field for the sale and con
sumption of our brcadstuffs and provis
ions. The lata conference ot Amorl
can republics proved tho existence of n
common desire for closer relations.
Our Congress should take up the work
where the International Conference left
It. Our field of commercial develop
ment and progress lies south of us."

by political economists. The patriot
