Mills' policy: Ucforo Coiizrcssman Mills left Tex as ho declared that thoro was to he no truco with prohibition Domocrats.but thoy must obey the crack of the party wli i) or bo "rcaa ont." inis womu climinato noarir half tho party in Tex ns, and mako Democratic snccessqnes tionablo in his own district as well as in tho Stato at larsre. And when Mr, Mills got to Washington he Earned upon tho Sam llandall tariff Demo crats and annoincea mat tney must fall into lino o? be "read out" of the party. Thus would he eliminate the Democratic majorities in New York, New .Tersov. Connecticut. Tirjrinin West Virginia and hazard success in mnuv others. It is fortnnato for the nnrtv that, it has the good sense to fol low safor counsel than Mr. Mills oflors, The Herald thinks that the Day commits an error !n classing prohibition along with the tariff question as a national political question, similarly rolated to the Democratic party. The H skald published the- press interview with Col. Mills In which he declared that llandall and his kind oi Democrats Bhould cither be required to support tho tariff reform bill afreod upon by tho president, speaker and the Domocrats of congress, or should not bo given any position where he could by sharp tactics defoat the progress of that measure, and in the same issuo tho Herald approved of that course It will be rornembered that protectionist Randall, as chair man of tho commtttco on appropria tious, succeeded by parlamentary tactics and shrewd mauueren to koep the tariff bill always bohind his ap proprlation measures, aud thoreby dolayed tho tariff reforms bill nntil it was bo lato in the sossion it conld not have tho timo for consideration it was entitled to, and was defeated It would now certainly bo unwise for tho speaker to put Raudall in a simi lar position this congress. True, he is an able aud experienced statesman but ho has used his ability and ex perience to aocure the defoat ot the most important Democratic measure. just as Sherman, Held or any other Republican would hare done. As to the loos of New Jersey. Con necticnt and other protection Demo cratic States, a strong cloar position by the Democratic party on this ques tion wonld win Iowa, Wisconsin, Illi nois and Ohio. Tariff reform, so as to relieve the masses of the people of the bnrdoa of an unnecessary high tax on the cheaper and more used articles of wearing apparel, building material household goods, medicines and pro visions is a political issuo of national importance, aud about tho only na tional issuo before the people of the country. Tho Herald will agree with tho Day as to tho Importance of tho abolition of the liquor traffic, but wo are in a very large minority, aud tho question is not and will not for torno years yet be a real national quostion. True, the Democratic plat forma and Republican, too, for that matter, for years haro declared against sumptn ary laws; but tho pooplo know that the abolition of tho liquor traffic Is not an effort to regulate ono's personal habits or exponsos, any more than a protective tariff which enriches a few manufacturers at tho expenio of many consumers, or than a low tariff revenuo policy which aims to saye to tho consumer tho premium he it now required to Tpay the manufactnrer nbove the price at which ho conld bny poods without the protective tariff. Tho difference In tariff protection nnd tho question of prohibition is, that, the tariff is a national anestlon affectiug alike and inseparably all the States the law on the subject are all national laws ; while prohibition is a local Question which each btato, coun ty or community may sottlo for itsolf without in tho loast affecting otbor Statos or communities. It is a polioe regulation for local self government and all tho Btato aud Fodoral courts have so docldod. Tho Doinocratic party would not bo tho Democratic party without its plodgo to rodnce the pretectivo tariff tax, but the Demo cratic party has not expressed itsolf for or against prohibition; and prohi bition is not a national political quos tion until tho national parties make it so. A few men may claim that tho term sumptuary laws" cover prohibition, but othors can provo by very cxcollont authorities including tho Snpromo Courts that it docs not. When tho National Democratic party doclares plainly against stato or coun ty prohibition, then it will very con siderably weakon itsolf in tho South ern .States; but until tho parcy does do that, tho Herald thinks Col. Mills consistent and right In his viows on Randall-protection intorforenco with Democratic principles, but sadly off his baso as to the reading out of Texas prohibitionists. Tderr was an exciting session of tho Fort Worth council last Monday night. Mayor Broils had appointed several extra police officers to aid in tho enforcement of tho Sunday law and gambling law. Fortlon of tho council refused to agree to pay tho official force, and tried to bluff the mayor, but he was good gamo and hold his poiltlon pretty well. The meeting finally adjourned In great confnslon without coming te any con clusion. The next morning the mayor met the marshall and police at the eity hall and read to them a short hnt emphatie command to enforce the law and trrtit every violator The Fort la a moral and prohibition city, bus the Inflnenoe of the saloons ia the Mind an 4 pellce force Is e vi delicet la the proceedings of the council end the difficulty an honest mayer has in enforcing city laws. The Atlanta Constitution says: Rodorlck Random Butler, congress man from the first Tennesse district is accused of telling his influence in tho ponding prohibition tight in Tennea- soo for $500. That is very cheap. Prohibition en thusiasts in Texas rated their oppo nenta higher than that all the way from $5000to$o0,000. If the an tl loaders in Tennessoe command no raoro than $500 each, there la strong hopo for prohibition success. KM Tort's A Crf on Oolonj.
