The United Slates senate does cot

part of Cleveland's message which re

timated that the surplus of exporting
countries is 41,250,000 quarters and the
requirements of importing countries
45,000,000. Reports from Argentine 6ay
that the crop is suffering considerable
damage from locusts, and India, of
course, though an exporting country,
has thi? season been importing wheat,
as may also Australasia. The extent of
the advantage which the general situa
tion offers our farmers depends, of
course, on the amount of wheat they
still have for sale. That they are pretty
well supplied may be believed from the
faot that there wa3 co failure of the
crop in this country this season.
Let's see? Who was it said Mark
Hanna had cornered the world's wheat
for political purpoees.
THE BASEST TREACHERY.
It now seems well settled that Gener
al Maceo is dead. He was foully and
treacherously murdered ambushed by
a lot of Weyler'e bloodthirsty assassins.
Maceo's death was encompassed by a
hellish scheme, born of the ignoble
treachery of Weyler. Weyler had be
come convinced that his generalship
wa3 co match for that of the brave
Cuban commander, and in despair call
ed together Dr. Zartucha and the Mar
quis of Ahumada, to whom he unfolded
the aooursed scheme which was con
summated in Maoeo's death.
Weyler took the field and in h?s ab
ser.ee Ahumada proposed through Zer
tucha a conference with Maceo, to take
place at a oertain province of Havana,
with the view of arranging plans for the
cessation of hostilities. The basis was
ti be Cuba's independence and a mon-
tary indemnity to Spain, together, with
certain advantages that should be agre
ed upon for Spanish commerce and
Spanish capital invested there.
To carry out the plan, the agreement
was that orders should be given to the
detachments of troops stationed on the
trochaon the section between Mariel
and Guansjayo to allow Maceo with his
staff to pass the military lice unmo
lested. Time was required to mature
these arrangements, and to give them al
the appearance of truth Ahumada feign
ed that before acting he must make them
known to Weyler for previous appro

President Cleveland is open to critic
ism in cot finding a similar condition of
inhumanity in Cuba that he discovered
in Turkey. Why did he allow this dif
ference to appear in his message? Had
he stated the situation in Cuba as plain
ly as he did that in Turkey, would Spain
cave cad any more cause for anger or
resentment than has Turkey? and yet
Turkey is cot expect. There is a good
deal to justify the belief -that Spain
knows Cleveland is her friend.
Upon the matter of restricting immi
gration to this country, asubjeotfraugbt
with deep interest to all classes, the
New York Mail and Express has the
following to eay, relative to the bill in
troduced by Senator Lodge:
"There is at least one measure dt
signed for the general benefit of the
whole country that promises to receive
the favorable consideration of the senate
at this session. This is the immigration
bill as prepared by Mr. Lodge. The
question of how to reetrict immigration
bas been discussed in congress and out
for years. A strong sentiment for radic
al restriction has arieen amocg labor
organizations, and this has encouraged
the growth of a feeling akin to know
nothingiem. But the Lodge bill does
cot cater to any violent anti foreign pre
judice. Its design is cot to shutout
that claB6 of labor which will prove its
value by developing the fields of the
south and west. It seeks, by an educa
tional requirement, to keep out illiterate",
of whom, etatietic6 prove, only a small
peicentage go beyond the states along
the Atlantic coast.
The trouble with our immigration has
for several years been that it is declin
ing from the United Kingdom, the
Scandinavian countries and Germany,
and relatively increasing from Italy,
Poland, Hungary and Bohemia. A large
proportion of those who come from the
latter countries are cot only ignorant.
thriftless and physically degenerate, but
are imbued with doctrines of the meet
ultra socialism. It is honeBt labor, cot
fanatio and revolutionary theories, that
America wants for its development.
There is co truth in the idea that our
labor market can be overstocked, so
long as the tide of domestic industry is
at its normal height and our capacity
of home ooneumption of product is
sustained by prosperity. There is ample
room for the hardy toiler and bis family
in the fallow fields south of the Ohio
and west of the Miesiseippi. Nor, as
the recent election showed, does the
country need to fear the effect of the
naturalized ballot of this class of foreign
The educational test proposed by Mr,
Lodge is the best form of restriction yet
offered. The senate bill is most con
servative, and wniie it may not answer
the desire of some labor eooietiee, it
promises to lessen the influx of those
immigrants who swell the ranks of dis
contented idlers in our eastern citiee
and add to the cumber of unemployed
The object to be attained is to lessen the
percentage of arrivals who remain in
New York, and to increase the number
of incomers to whom their port of dieem
barkaticn is only a way station on their
journey to the interior. The Lodge bill
differs materially from the measure
which has paesed the lower branch of
congress; but it is to be Hoped tbat it
will receive the approval of the eecate
and the concurrence of the house."

of the main speakers of the morning was
George H. Maxwell of Sao-Fraocieco,

principal objection was tbe haste that
