Estimating the increase of voters at the same rate it is found that the number of male inhabitants twenty-one years of age and over in the United States, omitting the territories, is in round numbers 14,000,000. Of this number 9,000,000 ore native white, 3,500,000 foreign born, and 1,500,000 colored. New York has 600,000 .foreign born males over 21 years of age.- Next in the list come Illinois and Pennsylvania, with 300,000 each; Ohio, fourth. In the list of foreign, bora, vo ters, having bnt 200)000 foreign born citi zens over 21 years of age. Wisconsin has nearly as many, the number being but a fraction below 200,000. Massachusetts and Michigan have nearly 200,000 each; Califor nia, Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri about 130,000 each. The State with the largest number of colored voters is Georgia, which has nearly 150,000 males above 21 yeai of age. Mississippi has nearly as many, and Virginia has 130,000. Connecticut has 56, 000 foreign voters out of a population of 200,000. Probably considerably more than 50 per cent, of the foreign voters of this State are Irish. Florida has about 70,000 voters, of which nearly one-half are colored, and 4,000 foreign born. The foreign-born vote of Florida is largely Cuban. Illinois has over 850,000 voters, of which 300,000 are foreign born, and 15,000 colored. Among the foreign born citizens of Illinois the Ger mans and Irish are about equal in numbers, with a sprinkling .of Norwegian, French and Italian. Maryland, which has been spoken of as possibly a doubtful State, has 250,000 voters 50,000 of them colored, .and 40,000 foreign born. Massachusetts has 550,000 voters about 190,000 of them foreign born, and 6,000 or 7,000 colored. The majority of foreign born citizens in that State are Irish. In New Jersey there are 330,000 voters 10, 000 colored and 100,000 foreign born proba bly more than 50 per cent, of the foreign element being from Ireland. New York has 500,000 voters, 600,000 being foreign born, the majority, of course, from the Emerald Isle. There are also in that Stats over 20,000 colored voters. North Carolina has in its 300,000 voting population 120,000 colored voters. South Carolina, which has 225,000 voters, has 125,000 colored and 4,000 foreign-born, Ohio, out of 900,000 voters, has 200,000 for eign-born and nearly 25,000 colored. The large majority of the foreign-born element of Ohio is German. Pennsylvania has 1,000, 000, about 300,000 of them being of foreign birth and 25,000 colored. Tennessee, which has 300,000 voters, has about 90,000 colored votes and 10,000 of foreign birth. Virginia has, out of 370,000 .votes, 140,000 col ored and 10,000 of foreign birth. West Virgin ia has 150,000 voters, 10,000 of them foreign born and 7,000 colored. Wisconsin has over 200,000 voters, a large proportion being Ger mans and a considerable percentage Scandi navians. The colored vote in Wisconsin is very small, being no more than 2,000 out of the 400,000 voters in that State. The State with the smallest number of voters is Neva da, which, supposing it to have increased double the general ratio, will have in this election less than 40,000 voters, while Dela ware has but 45,000, Oregon 70,000, and Rhode Island a little over 75,000. EDITORIAL NOTES. School election to-day, but no great excite ment. Governor Cleveland made a brilliant speech at the Elmira State fair. Among the gems was the following: "The soil remains in its place ready to be tilled." The running expenses of the big Brooklyn bridge are now at the rate of $300,000 per year, and Mayor Low thinks that this sum is at least $100,000 too large. According to the latest results of the finest instrumental tests as to the propagation of electricity an electric signal travels at the rate of sixteen thousand miles a second. Of two hundred and seventy ' fulminate factories started in Europe during- the pre sent century two hundred and sixty-one have disappeared by explosion. Fulminates are now made in small quantity at a time in low sheds. These are so arranged that an explosion throws them over and little dam age is done. The 'gangs" which infest New York have beautiful and significant names. These are some of them: "The Potash," "the Thomas Street," "Rotten Bow," "Ligktning Char ley's," "the Push Akmgs," "the Keep Mums," "the Never Sweats," " "Slim Jim's Regulators," "the Merry Ramblers," "the Forty Thieves," etc. Adulteration of leather is the latest, and comes from Germany. It is accomrjlished by soaking the tanned hides in glucose and arying them, which adds to their weight and apparent solidity and increases their value. it was detected by soaking the leather in water for twenty-four hours. The New York Star asserts that the Ger mans of New York are not unitedly in favor of Cleveland, notwithstanding the efforts of Carl Schurz and the Staats Zeitung. An in fluential German informs the Star that,while the Germans on local and even on State is sues are apt to act together, on the presiden tial question they will act independently, and many of them will give their support to the Republican candidate. Mr. Walton, a lock-maker, of Birmingham, England, is about to exhibit at the Wolver hampton exhibition, in case 247, a master key which he claims is capable of opening 22,600 patent lever locks, all the locks to be different that is to say, each of the 22,600 locks may be different in their wards and combinations. . . The key weighs thuee ounces, and is nickel plated. It has taken Mr. Wal ton, the inventor, three years to complete the drawings of the different wards and com binations which enable this extraordinary product of human ingenuity to be made. Master keys capable of opening one hundred different combinations have been known to thq trade for many years, but nothing ap proaching the key in question has ever been accomplished before. The First Congregational church in Nan tucket, Massachusetts, has formally author ized Miss Louise S. Baker, who has acted as its stated supply for nearly four years, to ad minister its sacraments, to admit members into it, and to "perform all other duties per taining to the ministerial office." "This," says the Boston Congregationalist, "amounts to an exceptional case of ordination by the church. But, as the church did not ask the advice of its sister churches and no advice was given it by them, the action taken whether in the judgment of sister Congrega tional churches wise or otherwise does not affect them. One main issue likely to be come practical, we should think, would be whether this ordination be sufficiently ac cording to 'the usage of the denomination to confer the power of legally solemnizing mar riage under the statute as to which opinions might differ." The French inventors of a steerable balloon are, it seems, not unlikely to be forestalled by German competitors in the same field of labor. A Dr. Woelf ert has accomplished at Kiel two successful experiments in aerial navigation. The balloon, like that of Cap tain Renird, is cigar-shaped. Its cubic con tents are 500 metres. If filled with ordinary gas it can carry a load of 350 kilogrammes, bnt if filled with hydrogen gas it will take as much as 800 kilogrammes. A height of 2,000. metres was attained at each experiment. One of the voyages lasted two and a half hours, during which Dr. Woelfert is said to have navigated against a northeast wind of a force of from two to three metres the second. It is stated that a special motor, the nature of which is not described, of five-horse power, is in course of construction for Dr. Woelfert, with which he feels confident of being able to navigate in the face of . strong winds. The weight of this machine will be but one-fourth of the carrying capabilities of the balloon. Dr. Woelfert, it is added, is negotiating with the German Admiralty for the establish ment of a balloon trial ground and works at Kiel. Hereafter.

The tallest bird known to ornithologists was found by Professor Herbert in the lower eocene deposits near Paris, France.

Norristown Herald.- Tariff" Revision. The great practical difficulty in tariff leg islation is that it must be the result of a scramble, in which the most adroit and ac tive get the advantage. The theory of pro tection is plain and simple enough. It is that the duties on imports should be bo ad justed as to put our domestic producers on an equality or give them a slight advantage, as compared with their foreign competitors in our markets. It is easy to state the theo ry; it is easy to state the theory; it is next to impossible to put it in practice, because it requires a knowledge of the conditions of all produce industries, which cannot be attained except by a systematic inquiry beyond the power of individuals. As things now are, there is always a demand from some quarter or another for changes in the tariff. Some one interested in a certain industry thinks it inadequately protected, or believes he can convince a majority in Congress that it is. He gathers a mass of statistics bearing upon the subject and submits them to the Com mittee on Ways and Means, and, if he ob tains a favorable report, to the House. His facts, are disputed, and an equally formidable array of statistics is produced on the other side. The general subject of protection and free trade is debated at length. The discus sion is deprecated, and the desired change is opposed by members who are not unfriendly to At, because they fear that, when Congress begins to meddle with the tariff, it will hot know where to stop, and may bo led to make changes which will seriously derange commerce and production. No schedule of duties would be entirely satisfactory to eve rybody, and the special knowledge which would make it possible to determine whether objections to any proposed schedule are rea sonable, or whether it is on the whole fair to all interests and well adapted to the prevail ing conditions, if anyone has it, is not' acces sible to members of Congress. Individual members are well instructed as to the inter ests of their constituents, but no one has that thorough knowledge of the whole sub ject which is necessary in order .to adjust equitably conflicting interests, nor is there any source accepted and trusted by all from which the facts needed as the basis of a sat isfactory tariff could be drawn. The need of such a body of trustworthy statistics was forcibly set forth by Mr. Car roll D. Wrieht, chief of the bureau of labor statistics, in his paper read bafore the Social Science association at baratoga on Wednes day. The title of his paper was "Scientific Revision of the Tariff." He not onlv showed the need andthe advantages of scientific method in a work which has been done in a clumsy and unscientific way hitherto, but he gave in outline a plan of the investigations necessary to provide scientific data for the work. There should be, first, a classification of all articles on which duties are now paid, showing the duties on each, whether intend ed for protection or for revenue only, which of these articles are produced in foreign countries and in what countries, what duties have been imposed under various tariffs, and what may be considered natural industries of each foreign country in competition with those of the United States. Second, classi fied data concerning the composition of all leading articles which pay duty, showing the percentage of labor, raw material, etc., in each; the cost, including all elements up to the selling price in the country of produc tion, a list of jobbing and retail prices in the country of production, the cost of importa tion, the jobbing and retail priees of the im ported articles in this country, and of like articles produced here, and the prices of such articles with and without duty charges, and under various tariffs. Third, classified data showing the amount of tax paid by consu mers on account ot tne tarin, as snown oy budgets of annual expenses of f amines in va rious grades or lire; snowing aieu wiiau a per capita tax or a property tax would be if our national revenue were raised by either of these methods of taxation, and a comparison of the three methods of raising our public revenue. This comparison would show which method would bear most lightly on the peo ple, and which would be most justly distrib uted, and also whether the poor or the rich pay more in proportion to their ability of the revenue raised by the general government. These, says Colonel Wright, are the leading features of a plan for the foundation of an equitable adjustment of the tariff. He il lustrates his plan as follows: If a single illustration ot the point l would attain with regard to each leading industry is required it will be found in the supposition that if in woolen goods, alter the collection and analysis of the information I have indi cated and all other information relative there to, it should be found that the American pro ducer of broadcloth stands at a disadvan tage of one dollar per yard as compared with the British producer of the same kind of goods, then a tax of one dollar per yard would simply place the foreign and American producer on an equality; in other words, the American manufacturer of broadcloths, if a tax of one dollar per yard were laid on his product, would have no inducement to aban don his factory in America and set it up in England. If the tax of one dollar per yard were not laid it would be for his interest to abandon his factory in America and move to England, or to Canada, or out of the country somewhere where the same conditions which give the foreign producer the advantage of one dollar per yard exist, and there set up his works. Having a tax, exactly and math ematically determined, as essential to place the foreign and domestic manulacturers on an equality, the consumer of broadcloth is simply aiding in preserving that equality when he purchases broadcloth, and through the duty which he pays he is not enabling the manufacturer to ask any more for his yard of broadcloth than he would if no duty were laid, rne revenue is preserved and no advantage given to the American producer, nor is he placed at a disadvantage through the location of his factories in this country instead of in some other. If now Congress wished to protect the American manufactur er of broadcloth, that is to say, put him in a position where the foreign producer of the same goods could not compete with mm, then any tax or rate of duty on broadcloth above one dollar per yard would be essential, and he could ask a higher price for his goods on that account, and the home consumer could purchase the foreign article if he choose, athough it would be enhanced in price on account of the duty beyond the one dollar. The distance beyond the one dollar per yard of the duty laid upon broadcloth would determine whether the duty was a protective one or a revenue duty only, and the public would know exactly what kind of duty it was paying. The result of this illustration, if it could be applied to all leading articles, would soon define the lines of the parties in this coun try, and would soon determine the question of how far a tariff shall become protective. Do not misunderstand me in the use of the word protective. I use it in its literal sense, and the protective duty excludes foreign pro ducts. The consumers, under the basis I qave indicated, would clearly understand the question. A Cliecrful Situation. From the New London Day. At this stage of the canvass in Connecticut the Republicans have good ground for confi dence. The situation is, beyond all ques tion, far more favorable to the Republicans now than it Was at a corresponding period in the canvass of 1880. There is a wider and deeper interest felt by the masses of the party than there has been in any previous canvass for many years. This interest has shown itself in many pub tic meetings, in the very general organization of campaign clubs and in an unusual amount of campaign work. The Republicans of Connecticut as a body are more than satisfied with the national nominations of their party. Indeed, anyone who takes the trouble to investigate as to the sentiments of the Republican masses will very soon beeome convinced that Mr. Blaine was their first choice for the presidency, and that they are supporting him with a degree of enthusiasm far greater than they have displayed for any other candidate since the Republicans won their first na tional victory in 1860. Equally plain will it be to the careful observer of the drift of party sentiment that the nomination of General John A. Logan is received with the heartiest approval by the Union vete rans of the country, and that nowhere will it be more cordially supported than in Con necticut. The splendid State ticket placed before the people by the Republicans admirably supple ments the work of the national convention.- On that ticket there is not a name that does not carry with it elements of strength. The nomination of Henry B. Harrison was a most conspicuou illustration of the office seeking the man. It is true that Mr, Harri rison did . not write a letter declining the nomination in advance; but it is equally true that he did not surroundthe convention with his political intimates to insist upon his nom ination. On the other hand, the demand for his nomination came spontaneously from all sections, of the State, and the choice of the convention rested upon him because of the universal belief that he is in every respect eminently fitted for the highest office in the gift of the people of Connecticut, and that he will bring to the discharge of its duties the highest ability and integrity, and a dig nity that will not need any self-assertion on his part to impress it upon the people. Mr. Harrison's nomination not only commands the hearty support of Republicans, but is cordially endorsed by the independent press of the State. It is expected that Mr. Harri son will deliver a few speeches during the caxfass. It is safe to predict that he will discuss the living issues of the day in a can did and forcible manner, and that he will not bore his audiences by making himself the principal theme of his addresses. Mr. Harrison's associates on the ticket are representative Republicans of the different sections from which they come. Individual ly and collectively they add strength to the cause. They are representatives of educa tional interests, of manufacturing interests, of mercantile interests and of the Union vet erans. It only remains for Connecticut Republi -cans to maintain the advantage they have gained at the beginning of the canvass. This they can do by plenty of hard and intelli gent work from this time forward. In order to win a substantial victory for Blaine and Logan and Harrison it is only necessary to bring the full Republican vote to the polls. NEW FALL: GOODS.
