Ka3 WHITAKER STiifcLlf, (MORNING NEWS BUILDING). J- - KoriH-, Proprltwr. XV. T. TIIOMP'iOS, Kdlior. SATURDAY, NOTEKKER 5. 188 It is estimated that the recent overflow of the Mississippi has caused damages between Keokuk, la., and Loui-itna, Mo., amounting to $2,930 000. The President has two policemen on guard at his residence in Washington to make the cranks move on. The idea seems to be that somebody may try a ■hot at him. New York specula’ors are buying up the long leaf pine lands along the antici pated route of the Sabine Pass and Texas Northern Railread between Marshall and Sabine Pass. Statistics of the population of Siberia do not make out a large total for that vast and dreary Asiatic country. The total is only 1.385,000 souls, while the area is over five millions of square miles. Mr. Comly, who wa- sent to the Ha waiian Islands for the benefit of his health by Mr. Hayes, four years ago. de sires another term. The salary is $7 500, and the duties consist in receipting for it. The excess of exports over imports for the twelve months ending the 30 h of September was $240,270,615. The excess of the imports of gold coin and bullion over the exports during the same time was $77,321 563. The Czar has ordered that seventeen of the imperial palaces and earilee, in cluding those of Livadia, in the Crimea, and the Belvedere, near Warsaw, shall be converted into educational institu tions for the benefit of the poor. According to the law, if Guiteau is acquitted on the ground of insanity and placed in an asylum, he must be die charged as soon as be becomes 6ame. It has been suggested that a good many shotguns would be likely to be discharg ed about the same time. The editor of a French paper published at Cairo stated in his journal that Ma hornet was a false prophet. His paper has been suppressed.- The Sheik decreed that he should die, but he Eoug’nt the protection of the French Consul, who gent him to France to avoid the threat ened doom. Secretary Blaine is credited with say ing that he believes that President Ar thur's Cabinet a r ter the Ist of January will be a Grant Cabinet from top to hot tom. He seems to think that ex-Secator Frelinghuysen will succeed him as Score tary of State, at lat& tby the Ist ot January. Mr. Bi&ine will recommend no more Consular appointments. Ht will leave that matter to his successor. They have "body-snatchers” in South as well as in North America. A case recently occurred in Montevideo similar to that of A. T. Stewart The grave robbers secured the body of a woman for which, according to dispatches from Lima, they demanded $2,000,000. Th demand was acceded to, but in the trans fer of the money the detectives grabbed the whole gang of thieves concerned in the matter. A rather curious c*§e came before a police magistrate in New York Satur day. A young lady named Julia Egan went to the matinee at Booth's Theatre, and there met another girl, who invited her to visit a restaurant near by. There a man, introduced as Mr. Thompson, im ▼ited them to lunch, and fi i ally the trio sat down with the keeoer of the place to play cards. Mis3 Egan lost sl-3, and, womanlike, had the others arrested. Mr. Windoin, though having held the Secretaryship of the Treasury but a few months, has had ample time to take notes of the office seeking nuisance. One of his conclusions is, that five-sixths of the applications for official appointment are based on the inability of the appli cant to support hims If. It is very clear, then, that five sixths of the applicants are unfit for appointments. It may be doubted, also, whether all the appoint ments made are taken from the remain ing one sixth. Ex-Secretary Windom has committed himself, in a published letter, to the poli cy of accepting the proposition of the holders of Minnesota’s repudiated bonds that ore-half of their face value be paid. But while the Minnesota Republican leaders who have political futures, or think they have, are forced by the pub lic sentiment of the country to this policy of half-honesty, the members of the Legislature, bound by no such reasons, are devising means for repudiating the whole debt. Mr. Arthur, says the Philadelphia Chronicle (Dem ), "is going to be a party President of the strictest kind. In all his acts and in all his conversations he looks at everything from the standpoint of a Republican politician who is determim and to give his party the full benefit of the Presidential office. It will be well for the leaders of the Democratic party to recog nize the fact that they will be obliged, during the next three years, to deal with one of the keenest and shrewdest organizers and disciplinarians iu national politics.” New York Cotton Excii vngk. -Fifty new members of the New York Cotton Exchange were elected on Monday, i aeh of whom paid an initiation fee ot $5 OX), making $250,000 added to the fuud of the Exchange. The limit of member ship at $5,000 has now been reached, and hereafter a seat will cost SIO,OOO It is I believed, says the Banker awl Broker, that even at that advanced figure a num j ber of applications for membership will | be presented, as the Exchange ib gaining daily in popularity aud volume of busi ness. Recently members have been ad mitted from nearly every important city in the country, and the Exchange prom ises to be in time the great cotton mart 4§ of the world. It is reassuring to learn from the re - H ports of delegates at the recent Inter I national Revolutionary Congress at I Chur, Switzerland, that socialism is on I the decline in all parts of the world tx I cept France, and in the United S ates it 1 is particularly depressed. The delegate | from this country stated that better I times had pretty weil destroyed the I organization by depriving it of its sup | porters; that the journals which several iyears ago advocated socialistic principles I had either died for want of patronage or I were now supporting some popular doc- L trine. This is a confession that its doc i trines breed only from germs, *i and in a healthy atmosphere it cannot i thriva. We arc glad to Kara that thia •courge of civilization is at present I lickiy. The Star Route Swindles. President Arthur Is offered a magnifi cent opportunity to make an enviable reputation for his administration by a vigorous prosecution of the star route mail service swindlers who flourished so luxuriantly under Hayes, but whose rascality was unearthed and ex posed during the brief term of service of the late lamented President Garfield. The President seems, how ever, to be either ignorant of his chances, or indifferent to their improvement. True, after much tardiness, the telegraph informed us yesterday that Judge Jeremiah Wiison, of counsel for the defense, began, cn Thursday last, an argument in favor of the motion to quash the information recently filed in tue case by the prosecution, but there ia a general feeling that the present admin istration shows itself remarkably apa thetic in the whole matter, and, conse quently, the impression has gained ground that the faction of the Republi can party at present running “the Na tion” would not seriously regret if the prosecution should fall through alto gether. This tardiness and this apathy are so marked that even the Republican press of the country feels called upon to com ment seriously thereupon. So prominent and pronounced a sheet as the New York Timet even finds fault, and complains that there is altogether too much dawd ling over the prosecution of the 6tar route cases. It calls upon the President to end the farce at once, and warns him that he can and he ought to see to it that there is no more trifling with a matter of much moment to his administration as well as lu the interest of the public .-arvice. It says: "He will be held to personal account for the success or failure of these prosecutions, at least so far a3 either depends upon the energy and earnestness of the agents employed lo press the case of the people. Avery emphatic hint that he will tolerate no playing fast and loose with the pursuit of public plunderers would have an ex cellent effect at the present stage of the star toute prosecutions.” It is not at all singular that Mr. Arihur should personally be unwilling to push these star route investigations to extremity. He has always, heretofore, beeu a bitier partisan, and he has not yet had sufficient experience in- the Presidential chair to realize that for the next three years and a half, at least, his duty will be to discard partisanship from His mind,and devote himself to national it. ing the government. Hence it i6 that he naturally desires, if possible, to shield from public odium the prominent lights of his party whose crookedness Mr. Garfield, although a Republican, ex posed, and whom, on account of their swindles, he made conspicuous candi dates for the State prison. But Arthur cannot permit either p*r >nai feeling or partisan prejudice to in terfere wiih the course of justice in these cise3. To say nothing of the great stake which he ha- in the vigorous prose cution of the alleged thieves, the public welfare and the public credit alike de mand that the parlies accused be brought to speedy trial, and, if found guilty, suf fer prompt punishment. He may not be responsible for the delay so far experi enced, but he can show personal inter e-t m the mailer, and let the public see that, at the outset of his administration, he is determined to let no guilty man escape, be be friend or foe, if he can pre vent it. Let him beware, however, of expressing such a determination, and afterwards, as did Grant, do all he can to -hield from justice every man who, like Belknap, should, in the penitentiary, be doing the State much service. The Teople ts. the Politicians. The Lynchburg post office straw, be fore the recent extra session of the Sen ate, clearly indicated the direction of the political wind and notified the country that no matter how well the brief admin istration and melancholy death of Presi dent Garfield prepared the people for total abandonment of sectional agitation and stiife, the politicians had not risen to that lofty attitude. Mutual sorrow and regret for the murdered President; the reunion of the great sections in com memoration of the deeds of their father.- at Yorktown; the common purpose of the States to meet in industrial harmony in Atlanta, and the investment of mil lions of Northern capital iu the South, may briDg the people together for further building upon the foundation of sympa thy laid in the assassination of the Presi dent, but the stalwart politicians of the North, and, above all, their chief, by virtue of the assas sin's ballet, will forbid the laying of the corner stone in the cement of political faith and harmony. The ghost of a "solid South’* still rises up to disturb the quiet of his dream, and though it may be sacrilege to dry a nation’s tear! with the rude blast ot a sound to arms, the opportunity must not be lost to strike a saving blow for stalwartism. A leading Southern State, riven by faction and struggling desper ately against the faithless ambition of an uuscrupulous demagogue, was about to throw off his yoke and strengthen her position in the solid line. This could not be permitted without great danger to the accidental supremacy of stalwart ism, and though it held the traitor in contempt, "tne end justified the means,” and national peace and harmony, if in compatible, must be sacrificed to fac tioual triumph and individual aggran dizement There is a growing probability that the Democrats will be able to carry the Seventh district of New Yorfc, the one made vacant by the appointment of Mor ten as Minister to France. The Repub lican candidate is W. W. Astor. “heir of all the Aetors.” Astor has been State Senator for some time and has always acted with the Albany bosses and monop olists, thereby making himself very un popular. The Democratic nominee, O. B. Potter, on the other hand, has made considerable capital as a civil service re former. The “half-breeds” are neutral in the matter and will generally refrain from voting, which ought to elect Pot ter by a good majority. The protectionists are again called upon to realize the fact that protection does not always protect For instance, statistics show that in 1880 there were exported to tbif country from Great Britain $123,035,000 worth of manufac tured goods, while there were exported from the United States to that country during the same period manufactured goods to the value of only sl2 890.000. Thus, ihou-’h our manufactures are the special subject of high protection, we re ceive from Great Britain near y one hun dred and eleven millions of dollars’ worth more of manufactured goods than we supply to that country. Comment ia unnecessary. The "President of the Pennsylvania Railroad has a salary of SIOO,OOO per year; the President of the Baltimore Ohio $50,000, and he of ths Erie Rail road $40,000. The Monroe Doctrine and the Panama Canal Editor Morning Jfact: General Ben jamin f. Butler, of Massachusetts, is ad mitted by every one to be an uncom monly shrewd man. and in nothing of his that we have heard or read has he shown a keener sense of ridicnle than ia his remark to an interviewer, published in your issue of this morning (Novem ber 4) The first specimen of Canning intro duced into America was by the clever British Minister of that name, the friend and favorite of Pitt, who sent over the “Monroe Doctrine," so called,in compliment to the President of the United States, in 1823, nicely put up and spiced with the declaration “that we (the people of the United States) should consider any attempt on the part of the European powers to extend their political systems to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace aud safety.” On the second day of December of that year President Monroe presented the dainty dish to Congress and the Ameri can people in his annual address. They relished and ewallow< and it, and Mr. Canning thereby defeated the ambitious de>igns of France and secured to the re volted Spanish colonies of South Ameri ch their freedom and independence of Spain—and, modestly for Eogland, their commerce and trade. It was a clever policy by which Uncle Sam was made to play the castanets while John Bull, as u*ual, consumed the viands. From the quotation taken, it will be seen that “the Monroe doctrine” is aimed solely at the "political systems’’ of the European powers, which the ad dress declares "lo be essentially different from that of America,” i. e. the United States, and in no manner refers directly, or by implication, to any canal at any point through the narrow isthmus con necting North and South America, out side of the borders of the United States. It must be lorne in mind that at that time the United States was the only republic in the Western hemisphere, and that the republics now controlling the isthmus were not in existence, but were colonies of Spain struggling for their independence, as we had done with Great Britain, and, naturally, bad our sjmpathy—the chord harmoniously struck by Mr. Canning in concert with the political schemes with Great Britain. The suggestion of a canal through the American isthmus to connect the Atlan tic and Pacific oceans is as old as the knowledge of *he Isthmus by the early Spanish discoverers, but was not brought to practical efforts until after our war with Mexico, when the Nica raugua Canal Company was or ganized under the patronage of the Government of the United States. This company was composed of American and English capitalists, and to protect their joint and several interests a con vention was made in the city of Wash ington by Mr. Clayton, Secretary of State, and Mr. Bulwer, Her Britannic Majesty’s Minister to this country, set ting forth the objects and national guar antees of the enterprise. The company, however, fell through, and the Clayton Bulwer convention was never brought into operation. By this convention, admission was made, however, by the United States of the principle of international guaran tees for the protection and neutrality of the canal, and that such an enterprise was not entirely under the control of the United States. And, therefore, undtr the admissions of that convention, Mr. Blaine s extreme views in regard to the Panama canal as recently expressed by him are not tenable. But granting their soundness in theory they are not practicable, and for the rea son that PuD&ma is not within the con trol of the United States, but of Great Britain. A glance at the Atlani! coast of America will demonstrate th;- There we see that Great Britain has, at Hali fax, Nova Scotia, a strong military and naval depot; at the Bermudas, south of it, another similar depot; at Jamaica, in the Caribbean sea at the entrance to the Gulf of Mexico, another, and at the Belize, Honduras, another. Besides she holds convenient and strong piquet posts at her many island possessions, com manding every pass from the Atlantic ocean into the Caribbean sea and the Gulf of Mexico, and the United States has not one. In consequence Great Britain holds a complete check on our Atlantic and Gulf coasts from the St. Lawrence to the Rio Grande by a strong cordon of military aud naval posts, shutting in our ports whatever fleets we may have, weak as they are, and threatening our sei-cuast defenses. Now, way down south of this cordon, in latitude 80-10 degrees, will be the canal, already completely under the control of Great Britain, whose men of war possess the ocean; and unless we create a navy more powerful than that of Great Britain, (that can break through her naval command of our coasts, and steam down to the rescue of the Panama isthmus) always to remain under the guns of the British navy. We might almost as sensibly talk of protecting the neu'rality of the Cape of Good Hope as of any cmal through the American isthmus. And here comes in, it seems to me, the irony of General Butler, who, no doubt, recalls the say ings of his school days, that "Brag was a good dog, nut Hold Fast was better.” Democrat of the Old School.
