TARIFF CRITICISED. Wants Fair Elections and Pro tection from Monopolies. Xew York, Oct 11. lion. Levi P. Morton, Republican nominee f ir gov ernor, haa sent his formal letter of acceptance to Hon. Warner Miller, chairman of the Republican state con vention It is in the main as f jllows: Rinecliff. X. Y., Oct. 10, 1631. lion. Warner Miller, chairman Re publican state convention. Sir: 1 have been o'dieially informed within ' the past few days of my nomination for governor by tiie con vention over wliich you presided at Saratog-a. The issues involve 1 in the pending" canvass are clearly defi ned aad are of paramount iiniortance. Tiev are i related both to state and federal con cerns. They affect the rewards of labor, the security of capital and the safety of society. Within our borders is the metropolis of the continent an 1 New Y'ork state is iirst in commerce and only second in agricu Lture. Mr. Morton refers to the new tariff law as follows: "A measure was enacted fals-i alitfe to the promptiaars of true American ism and to the professions of the i Democratic party. The bill which I originally passed the house of repre- I sentatives had at least the merit of ; consistency in some dejfree with tlie j ante-election promises made to tlie I people by the Democratic national I convention. But th it wliich finally prevailed is a thing- of incenjrui- i ties, a patchwork of protection, j and free trade, of protection to fa- vored localities and of nurture to the ! trusts, but of hostility to the masses ! of the workinpuien cf the land. Re- i pudiated by its principal f ramer, char- acterized by tiie Democratic pre-,i-ctent as a bill of perfidy and dishonor, ' denounced by the senior senator from this state and unattested bv tiie silt- ' nature of the president, proclamation is already made that it is only the be-g-inninsr of the attack which viil be persisted in upon American wae earners. "Ia tlie confusion of Democratic councils and the perversity of Demo cratic legislation it is pia n that tlie only wise coarse far the country to pursue is to restore the man aarenient of its affairs to that party wnicli for thirty years has developed its re sources, upheld its g-ood faith, cared for those who fouprht for its integrity and g-uarded the rights and fortunes of its citizens." In conclusion Mr. Morton says: "Let us have a pure judiciary and an hon est ballot; an excise law that will promote temperance; reduced ex penditures in order to set the example of economy in private affairs; the most enlareed education, to teach us the value of our citizenship; an 1 with a jealous regard for that citizenship let tis welcome the liberty-loving of all lands to the enjorrrent of tiie largest liberty regulated by law. '"Under the constitution of the United States, as well as the organic law of this state, till citizens are placed on a footing of absolute equal ity before the law. This provision in the supreme law I fuily recognize. not only because it is obligatory as a i statute, but beciuse I am in favor of j the fullest freedom in the worship of j Almighty God. i "I aesire to emphasize my concur- j rence in the provisions of the plat- ! form of the Saratoga convention. ! wherein the party pledges to the ' people a free ballot and a fair count, practical ballot reform, free and fair primaries as fnlly protected by law as general elections, an improved civil . service, municipal home ruie, a just I apportionment, reduced state expend- itures, an equitable system of taxa- ! tion, an acceptable excise law, ade- quate protection from unjust discriminations by monopoli-s an 1 a j minimized tax rate. Very faithfully yours, Levi 1T Morion." TAMMANY HCliET NAMED. Nathan Stranj Za Nominated for Mayor of New York. New York, Oct 11.

Secretary Coburn Issues His Quarterly Agricu-Iturad Report, The quarterly report of Secretary Co burn, ot the department of agriculture, for the quarter which ended bt p ember 80, has Leea Usued. The book contains 207 pages ot tables and statistics covering almost every subject connected with agricul tural and stock operations in Kansas and is one of the most comprehensive and valuable publications yet issued from this department. The acreage and product of all the field crops of the state for the year 1394 are given by counties together with the num ber of the various kinds of live stock. An interesting article at this time is one relating to feeding wheat to farm animals, its practice in Kansas and its bearing upon agriculture and stock raising, as derived from 40J corre spondents. Of the 24,827,523 bushels of winter and spring wheat raised in Kansas in lb93, there has been used as feed for farm animals, 4.0.")3.323 bushels, or 16. 1 per cent. Cowley and Sumner counties leading, with 207,044 and 407,007 bushels respectively. When fed whole (perhaps more es pecially to hogs), 25 per cent of it passes the animals unmasticated.and, hence, undigested and unassim ilated a shameful waste. The average of the estimates made by eighty-one correspondents in twenty counties is that above 30 per cent is voided with out mastication; twelve correspon dents, representing five counties, put it at 50 per cent or above, and a few others name a higher figure, while forty, reporting from twelve counties, average at 10 per cent-Three-fourths of those reporting, represent ng fifty counties, state that, pound for pound, wheat is superior to com for fattening hogs (even with the one-fourth unmasticated) by seven to thirty-five per cent; the av erage of these indicating a superiority over corn of sixteen per cent, while the average of the other one-fourth of the reports, representing twenty six counties, indicate that it is con sidered of less worth than corn by twelve per cent. To the question as to how much live pork may be expected as a fair return per bushel of wheat fed to hogs, the average of all the answers is eleven pounds, and the variations from seven pounds, in a single in stance, to as much as twenty pounds in one other; but nearly all put their figures at or aboxe ten pounds. The average of all the reports as to the cost of wheat, raised and in the bin, "including 7 per cent interest on the value of land upon which raised, also wear and t?ar of equipment," with different yields, shows thus: ield of 10 bushels per acre, 56 cents a bushel. Yield of 15 bushels per acre, 43 cents per bushel. Yield of 20 bushels per acre, 35 4-5 cents per bushel. Yield of 25 bushels per acre, 31 cents per bustieL yield of 30 bushels per acre, 27 cents per bushel. Yield of 35 bushels per acre, 28 cents per bushel. Responses from eighty-five counties having all the wheat raised except 181,514 bushels, received within tl'.e last ten days of September, this year, to inquiries sent to correspondents, asking their estimates on the per centage of the wheat crop of 1894, which will be fed to farm animals, represent it as 30.4 per cent of th wheat in those counties, a total of 8,024. 933 bushels, or 110 per cent (4,465,000 bushels) more thau the en tire previous year's crop so used.
