The more they scatter the better. HoN. ANDREW D. WHITE, ex-presi dent of Cornell university, who is said to be Boss Platt's choice for the repub lican nomination for governor of New York, is an anti-machine man, an ardent civil service advocate and a tariff re former. He voted for Cleveland for governor in 1882 and has as little use for Platt as Platt has for him. If he is nominated for governor the chances are a hundred to one that Platt will trade him off in the hope of carrying the legis lature and electing himself to the senate to succeed Hiscock. THE trial of Prof. Briggs for heresy will take place before the New York presbytery early in October. The event will only have passing interest, for Dr. 13riggs has already been prejudged by the committee that is to prosecute him. 'The committse was appointed to con vict and all its members were in favor of his prosecution. The action of the New York presbytery will not end the matter, however. The case will be car tied to the highest ecclesiastical body in the church and fought to the end. What the end will be no man can fore tell. BRADSTREET's latest review of the financial situation is the most hopeful }that has appeared in the columns of that conservative journal. While it believes that the influence of the financial die turbances in Europe is yet felt, and that there are possible causes for apprehen lion in regard to our own finances, it yoes not believe that the restraining in 'luences of a weak cotton market and the check in railroad building will pre went the money market from active bperation. "The prevalent impression deems to be," it says, "that the favor able conditions are of sufficient force to overcome all obstacles to the develop ment of what is known as a boom." THie, friends of that eminent colored leader, T. Thomas Fortune, are pressing him for minister to Hayti, but when President Harrison reads in Mr. For tune's newspaper about "Mr. Bargain Counter Wanamaker" and the intima tion that our trouble with Hayti is all caused by a grasping contractor, whose cause the United h tates has advocated, "as a big republican and a heavy con tributor to the campaign funds of the party," be is not likely to turn a favor able ear to the application. And to make his position still more clear Mr. Fortune writes: It looks as if our failore to seense the cession of the Mole was due to the exao tions of a republican shipowner, acting through a blundering admiral of the navy, created a special plenipotentiary rather than through any treachery or ill-will of the Hartian government, and that the good re lations between the two governments can easily be resumed with the advantage to the commerce of both by the appointment of a successor to Mr. Douglass who shall )ossess the sagacity without the disadvan tage of his great age, and without being hampered by an admiral ot the navy who takes the domineering manners of the quarter-deck into the delicate negotiations of diplomacy." Mr Fortune is too truthful for a dip lomat. FAMgEri, who do not believe that the republican party humbugged them on the wool tariff are mighty few these days. The Ohio wool growers, the wooliest of the lot, have had their eyes opened by on interview, recently published, with Thomas Dolan, an eminent New England protectionist and manufacturer, who said, "It is an interesting fact, deserv ing much emphasis of statement that the prices of woon are much lower than they were one year ago. 'I'TIis decline was distinctively promised by the pro tectionists during the discussion which accompanied the framing of the McKin ley tariff." A comparison of prices of Ohio and Michigan wools on August 1, with those prevailing one year ago show that this promise has been kept. - We give the figures from Bradstreets: OHcO AND MIOHIOAN WOOLS. 1890K 1891 Cents.

Holly Brussels experieaned a very sharp advance of 10 to 17%( cents, according to the quality of the goods. These advances have thus far held. Perhaps the Helena Journal, which insists that woolen tabrics have not ad vanced in cost, will convince the Ohio granger that these figures are all a mis take and that carpets can be bought at the old prices. And again perhaps it can't. HENRY CABOT LODGE. author of the force bill, who has seen that measure overwhelmingly condemned by the American people, in a paper on the is sues of 1892, predicts and hopes that the free coinage of silver will be the issue in the next presidential campaign. He lays: There can be very little doubt that the next congress will pass a free coinage bill. I have not heard of any one either in or out of congress or of either party, fitted by ex perience or observation to judge, who doubted for a moment that such a bill would go through. If a free coinage act passes the next congress it is equally true that no one doubts that President Harrison will veto it in the interest of honest finance and sound business methods. Should this happen, as It is not believed that the bill can pass both branches over the presiden tial veto, it will leave the question open to be settled at the polls in 1892, while the po sition of the parties upon it will have been sharply defined by the action of congress and of the administration respectively. Whatever difference may exist within the parties unon this question, the conditions are such that one must sustain and the other oppose it. They cannot both get upon the same platform in regard to it, and it therefore seems inevitable that the free coinage of silver will be the leading issue in the next campaign, the one upon which most popular feeling will be excited and upon which most votes will turn. Mr. Lodge shows commendable pru dence in seeking to escape from the force bill and the tariff, but his party cannot so lightly escape responsibility. SEPTEMBER MAGAZINES. We are accustomed to associate the name of Rhdyard Kipling with stories of Indian military life, but in hisnautical story. "The Disturber of Traffic," which appears in the September Atlantic, he has struck an en tirely new vein. The story is related of an English lighthouse keeper, who tells of the experience of another lighthouse keeper in a little known part of the world, who, half maddened by solitude and a certain curious optical delusion connected with the tides flowing by his light, became to an alarming extent a "disturber of traffic." Another short story, "An Innocent Life," is conti ib uted by Lillie B. Chaoc Wyman, whose "Poverty Grass" is remembered as a col lection of powerful short stories on social questions. Mr. Stockton's "House of Martha" is continued by a long install ment, and Mary Hartwell Catherwood gives us four clever chapters of "The Lady of Fort St. John." Thus fiction is quite fully represented in this summer issue of the Atlantic. Octave Thanet has a second paper on "Town Life in Ar kansas." John Burroughs has left his fields for "A Study of Analogy:" Mr. Brad ford Torrey, however, still remains faithful to his rustic haunts in a sketch of "Dyer's Hollow." John Fiske has a paper on "Eu rope and Cathay," which discusses the rea sons why early Norse discoverers of Amer ica wert not its real discoverers. A paper on "The Author Himself," by Woodrow Wilson; a charming description of the Jap anese Feast of Lanterns and the Market of the Dead, by Lafcadio Hearn, and a review of M:s. Oliphant's Life of Laurence Oli phant (in itself practically a biographical sketch of thit extraordinary man), under the apt title or "A Modern Mystic." are among the other interesting papers. There is poetry by Dr. Parsons, Col. Higginson, and Philip Bourke Marston, and reviews and the usual Contributors' Club. Scribner's Magazine for September con tains the fifth and concluding article in the successful steamship series, entitled "The Steamship Lines of the World," by Lieu tenant Ridgely Hunt, U. S. N., a son of the late secretary of the navy and minister to Russia. (It is announced that the steam ship articles, like the railroad rind electric series, will be issued in a handsome volume.) This number contains three articles on essentially American subjects-on "Old Homes," from the dug-out to the Adiron dack cabin; on "China Hunting in New England," particularly along the Connecti cut River valley, with an account of many rare American plates, which it was once the custom to make as souvenirs of import ant events; and (the third) on the "Present Ideals of American University Life," by P'rofesnor Joeiah Royce, of Harvard, who pleads foe the idealization of our colleges, rather than their fuitber adapta tion to practical ends. Other important articles in this issue are "Browning's Asolo," by Felix Mosoheles, the artist and friend of lirowning, a pictureuque and per sonal account of the little Italian village where the poet's last volume. "Asolando," was written, with illuatrations from the author's o, n water-color sketches; a deecrip Ition of 'The City of the Sacred Bo- Tree," by James iticalton, a veteran traveller and photographer, whose acconunt of this won derful city in Ceyloni is abundantly illus trated: Andrew Lang's "Adventures Among lisolks." a sort of literary autopiography: the sec-ond installment of the serial story, - The Wrecker," by Robert Lousis -(teven so n ly shourne, and abort stories by Toma NesonPage and Charles 0.
