The discussions now go ing on in the press of that State are conclusive evidence of this fact. The rallying cry of the Democracy will be the silver dollar as a legal tender for all debts, public and private, and the re peal of the resumption act. How far the Republicans, as a party, will ven ture to antagonize these views, is as yet unknown. A clear whistle from Wash ington would doubtless solve the prob lem. We have no doubt but that sound will be given. The Cincinnati Gazelle says that the Republicans are in favor of the resump tion act "if"-mark this "lf"-"as Sc retary Sherman represented in his Ma rietta speech, it will add specie to the greenback circulation, ,but are utterly opposed to the act if it in. to work any contraction." This Marietta speech was made during the last presidential canvass. It was made to catch votes not the expression of his honest opin ions. As Secretary of the Treasury, he would be far from giving birth to such sentiments. Nobody knows better than he that forced resumption means con traction. The difficulties lying in the road of the Republican party of Ohio are set forth by the Gazette in the following paragraph : "The present position of Secretary Sherman is understood to be a conces sion of a silver dollar to be legal tender for private coin debts, and for redemp tion of greenbacks, but not for the pub lic debt nor for customs. It is also un derstood that the President has recently come to this stage. This is considera bly behind the Republican popular sen timent in Ohio, and, we may say in that great and indefinable region called the West; and it presents an invidious and unpopular distinction between one class of public debt-'the blood-bought and battle.sanctified greenback,' and another class, the 'Shylock-bought and hated bond,' and also of one kind of money for the people and another for the bondholder. But as both the Presi dent and Secretary Sherman have, as President Grant said he would have no policy but to carry out the will of the people, and as both are advancing on this line of progress, it is presumable that both will come fully up to the de mand of Ohio popular sentiment, as the exigencies of puclic financiering will permit. "If they do not, then the Ohio Re publicans will labor under the disad vantage of this reservation by the ad ministration, that the silver dollar should not be receivable for customs nor payable on the public debt. In that case the Democrats would make the campaign on that issue, namely, the sil ier dollar for the bondholder and for all public and private dues, together with the repeal of the resumption act. The Ohio RIpublicans will go the whole length on the silver dollar. As to the resumption act, they try to believe in Senator Sherman's promise that it shall add specie to the entire paper money circulation. But this is up-hill work. This act has become a standing fear; for in spite of all the promise of specie added to paper, and of a silver dollar cheaper than paper, there is an instinct that resumption is contraction--a thing no statesman dares to mention. Owing to the reports of the sale of five million bonds for coin, and the investment of this in greenbacks to lock up, the popu lar mind has become very sensitive to any movement of the Secretary that contemplates either present or ulterior contraction." We are half inclined to think that this Ohio election has much to do With the postponement of the extra session of Congress. We can imagine an anxiety to dodge these dangerous political is sues, especially on the part of John Sherman. As chairman of the Commit tee on Finance in the Senate of the United States he was never known to favor any measure designed to benefit the masses. He was always found on the side of the bondholders and capital ists of the country. He is now working on the same side, and we would distrust any change of sentiment made by him at the present time. He is thoroughly committed to the resumption act and to exclusive gold payments to the bond holders. We never did believe in death bed repentance; nor do we believe that Secretary Sherman is going to put him self fairly, squarely and honestly by the side of popular sentiment in Ohio as ex pressed by the Gazette. The only way the President can set himself right is to give John his wklking papers. TIlE FINANCIAL POLICY OF TIlE AD MINI sTRIATION. [St. Louis Times.] An article appeared in Washington on Saturday, which is said by the Chicago Tribune to be semi-official and to reflect the financial policy of Mr. Hayes. The Tribune is good authority on that sub. ject, as its editor was recently in Wash ington, consulting with Messrs. Hayes and Matthews in regard to the silver movement, a-d has been made inti mately acquainted with the views of the Administration. We copy from that paper a synopsis of the article referred to: "It represents that, whatever course Mr. Hayes may pursue regarding the silver question, the business interests of the nation will be protected; that, in the present depressed condition of finances, it is deemed wisdom, by postponing the speedy payment of the public debt, to reduce taxation; that the resources of the country should be develoFpd by ex tensive public improvements; that the public securities should be popularized by low rates, and that long-term bonds should be encouraged; that the silver dollar should be remonetized and the greenback redeemable therewith, and that all bonds issued before or since 1873 should be payable in gold coin." The statement that "the business in terests of the nation will be protected" means that the bondholders, the na tional bankers, the gold bullionists and the Eastern capitalists have nothing to fear from any plan for the remonetiza tion of silver that may be advocated by the Administration for party purposes in Ohio. The statement that 'the pub lic securities should be popularized by low rates" is so meaningless as to be absurd. When the people of a youngand growing country, such as the United States, can find so little profitable use for their money that they are willing to invest it in "public securities at low rates," our condition of financial pros tration is truly deplorable, and the word "popularized" is strangely out of place when used in connection with such securities. The sense of the ar ticle further is that the silver dollar shall be remonetized, but only to the extent of redeeming the greenback. That is to say, its coinage will be re sumed, but its legal tender quality will be limited to that which is now pos sessed by the greenback: it may be used to pay private debts, but gold alone shall be sacred to the public cred itor. This evident construction is ren dered absolute by the further statement that "all bonds issued before or since 1873 should be payable in gold." The financial policy of the Adminis tration will be seen to be exactly as we have stated it. It means that there shall be one kind of money for the pri vate creditor and another for the public creditor; one kind for the people and another for the bondholder; that the people's .money shall be silver and na tional bank notes, and the bondholder's money shall be gold and nothing but gold. It is both strange and startling that the Chicago Tribune, which has hitherto advocated the silver dollar, can print this exposition of the financial policy of the Administration without a word of dissent or even of comment.

HO1W HE PROTFCLTED THE PROPERTY HE REPREMENTS BY HII VIN DICTIVE ACTION. Prominent Firms Termlnating Their uli iness Connection with A. T. Stewart & Co.-Mr. Sell;man's Letters. (Rpecial Dispatch to the Cincinnati Gazette.) NEW YORK, Juntte 19, 1577.- The publication by the Times of the fact of Joseph Seligman being denied admissilon to the( Grand Union Hotel at Maratota, as a guest. has created a profound excitement in this city. The most bitter hostility is exhibited to .Judgte Hilton by the Jewish population, and he iis con dlemned withoutt stint or delicacy. but the Jews are not the only ones excitbil. Every one who keeps a hotel or tIoarding-house, and every one who Iordts either in the city or elsewhere are interecsted as i no p)revl)ious race questliIo in the siocial world. )ispa.tches from Snratoiga indl11'a14 the ex cite.ment there t.o I very great. Mr. Solig mnan wtas not the only lone() who has 1.1e4nl o(r fused trooist at the Grand Tnlion. Indeed, Mr. fHellrnan, ason-in-law of Mr. eligman, was first refused, and severaln prominent mer chaltus and a judge have been dellnil. It is plainly a race matter, s.) far as Judge Hlilton is concelrnedl , exceplt that he would l nake some and probably maV ny ex.ept.iins. Mr. Seligrnan R.ems to be, a. mann wihoi is genera~y disliked biy his Jewish brethren, anwl they tle disposed to let him litht his own battlehs. ' he 'lim0,s has itnterviews with the various hotel managers of Sara.tga. Long Branch, New York, Philadelphia anid other plkces. The general position taken is deeldedly op posed to that of Judge Hilton, although there are few hotels in this city where Jewish cus tom is openly discouraged on grounds siti lar to those stated by .Judge Hilton in yester day's l'imes. Others discriminate very close y, but are "careful not to openly base such discrimination on race grounds. '1 he proprie tors of the Grand Union Hlotel at Saratoga state their case very plainly, anid base their action squarely on thel, demnands of their cus tomers. They desire a different c('lass of eus torners than that which the Jewish people bring, and, therefor(e, they dlecline, as a rule, to receive the latter. The St..lamnes andt the Alltermarle, of this city, have substantially the same rules as those of the Grand Union, at Haratoga, and the managers state them as frankly. Edward Lauterbach, attorney fotr Mr. Se ligman, makes a vigc,,rous reply to Judge Hilton. In an interview he criticizes the business methods of M r. Stewart's suIccesor, and compares hint with Mr. Seligman in pub lie atnd so'ial life, to the disadvantage, of course, of .lJudge Hiltlto. It alte states that one hundlred Jewish merchants withdrew their accounts yesterday from the house of A. T. Stewart &.C. Co., anti lie estimates the loss orf traild which this defection is likely to hte to the flh' at fromnt $3,(),000 to $5,000,(000 a year. Mr. Seligman's remrredy, he says, is in the courts, under tih civil rights bill, which prescribes a tine (,f $5.K0 and imprisonment of r'om u ne month to a year for such action as ihat of the (Grand UTnion ltel. Mr. Laulerbatch says of SHlignman that he is really the head of the ,Jewish peptle in this country. For years he was co.nllllissioner of the board of tlucatiton ; ie is the presidentt of the Rapid Transit ompanty; he is a tleading directtor in many of the iest banks in this city, a leading rnitinter of the Republican party and vice president of the Union League Club, into which Judge Hilton has vainly sought admittance. He' is also a prominent memer r of the C(hambenl otf (Cronlmer'ce. When gen. (Grant was here the Union League, with the (entury and ot,herst of the lest c(lubs, tendered himn receptions, but Mr. SHligmant's o)elmonico siupper was tiit' only one acceptedl fromt the whole splendid list. Mr. Hilton states his grounl with great clearne.ss to-night.. Iti says: "The step 1 have taken has ibnu for(.l upon me after long deliberation, ni I believe that every proprietor of a first-class summer hotel will hail with joy the blreak which this iprei''lent has lllade for thttn. I know that scores iof thesm proprietors would long ago have done just what I have done if they hadl dared to do right, and had I'en indrepndent enough finan cially to take the stejp whtich prudtlene has for a long time been insisting should he taken. It is not a personal controversy. The true foun dation of it is the principle of the exclusion (,f a (ertain class of Jews from first-class summer hotels. Mr. Hilton detnies Mr. Lauterbach's state ment tbhout firnms witihdrawirng their tralde fromr Stewart', and says but one suh(' fi rml has c'losed its atiliounlts. "We got a letter t, dtay from a city nterclhant, saying that he couldt nio longer deal with ai hiuse that was reviving the middle ages. ills name is Fin stein, and hi dot tisi.ess on (Church streot,. tHe promptly l csd his ao, aunt- it aullllntl to '2 19.

Hebrews are not persecited, there is no religious stanlardl raised, hotlis run for a particular class of patrons must conform in their management to thei, wishes and pre judices of thele pIatrons or igo down, and such hotels are in their very nature ex('lusive. A hotel that charges $4 a (lay proscribes the people who can not pay $4 a dany but they do not complain--they go clsewhaere. Four dollar hotels don't want them, nntld they go to the two-dollar hotels, which do, and that ends it. But here is the Seligman Jew, who represents nothing that is standard Hefirew. He is to the Hebrew what the sh yster is to the law profession. He is thei "sheene." He has maulo money, and he must advertise it in his persoin. He is of low origin, and his instincts are all of the gutter. "He enones to the Graln Union, big with himlself and little with everybody else in the decent world, plnhks down hisi cash with his royal order, and having never seen respecta lie food he can't, got enough to eat unless lie gIorgesi lown his unpracti.iel throat six mealsa dlny. Pleopile won't, go to hote'ls where the Seligmnan Jew is atlrrmittil, and hotels, if they would thrive, must keel, out those who would ruin their existenice, and the very fact that the Se ligirnai .Jew Iraku s such a fuss because ii op|le ilon't wanlt his sciii:ety, aitil inaIkes such a noise to force himnself where he is unwel corne, insteald of going .ilsiewher.., proves hirle to be just what I dueseritled him." Among those refusl.sl acco' nnrr lation at, the Grand Union Hotel are Marcus Goldman, ar broker living on Madlison Avonue; Louis Josephthal, a wholesalue manuifacturer the well known toibac.conist. orf Pea'rl street. Another cas wasthatf t hit o tu' Hon. John Kiock, ex-justice of the Fifth I)istrict .ourt, who is well known in the bust Jewish siciety. As early as four or five weeks ago Judge Kroch, who spunt last seas.on and s.veral other sum melrs at the Grairdl Union lHotel, called upon Mr. Cain at A. T. Stewart's store, to make arrangelments for suw.elring accomnlmodlation for himself and family. Mr. Cain informedl the judge that he cmofld have his old apart nments, and on the latter .x pressing the wish to occupy a nmore d'esirabl, suit of apart, ments, Mr'. Cain said that lhe would see about it the mo:ment hre grit to Saratoga. Judge Koch neveri receiveld any cormmunnication from Mr. Cain. Of those who have withdrawn business from Stewart & Cu. are the following : Menstadter Bros., of San Francisco, on he aring of the Sligmnn mnatter, cancelled an order for $20 ,0Wt worth of gotwls and closed their account. George Liclitenheim and Si rnon Bernheirmer, prominent merchants, have also closed their accounts. Mr. Cohen, the extensive corset manufacturer, has also with drawn his account. MR.

From all the city papers conet up the cry of thousands of starving people who have nothing to do. Want of employment seems to be the great want of the (lday with the city poople. It is said that in New York upwards of fifty thousand families are out, of employ ment and out of broad. In New Orleans many thousands are starving for the want of work. Thousands are waiting for the Pacific rail read and the jetties to bring them something to do. The city journals are contlinally firing off long leaders on the subject of want of capital, enterprise and thisines, and giving Iearned disquisitions on the subject of trade and finance, and the mode to et things in shape once more. TIh Pacifi ailroad is what is wantenJ according to some, and the grain trade according to others, to give employment to all. Now it is a singular phenomena that while the cities are filled with idle peopl)e, in the country the great want is labor--sonmetly it) work. In the Attakapas the whole prodluitive powers of the country are almost paralyzed for want of laborers, and 50,000 people could find profitable employment Ir the variousbHranch es of agriculture. Vermilion parish neueds 10,000, Iberia from 10,1000 to 15,000, Lafayette 10,000, rmt. Martin and Mt. Mary 20,000 labor Not that these numbers could dll at once got homnei, but in a conrlarati vtoly short time they could. With this acce.ssiton of popula tion these parishes would not te half full nor be worked to) more than half their capacity. We know of manyy men whiose farming opera tions are not half soo extensive as they wish, solely from a want of laborers. toodl homes anrd an independent living such as no cit.v laborer ever knew, are tfo b, had in a shoi.rt time in the Attakapas. Is it not cArtain then that somebody is out of place, that smnehordy has got where they are not wantel ? Talk albut want of capital! What is capital hut the accumulated fruits of lahlir These idle la borers in a few years on the fertile fields of the Attakapas can create all the capital required. Don't wait for capital. (o to work and create it. Vermilion parish last year made less than 1000 hogsheads of sugar. She has amlle (a pacity to make 80,000 hogshemads and plenty of provisilons and cattle besides. Supp~os now she had the population and made and shipped 80,000 hogsheads of sugar yearly for saleo withthe molasses added, and made all her broad and meat bsldes how long would she be in want of capital? No, gentlemen, get out of the cities where you are not wante'd into the country where you are wantedI, anrld your fortunes will soon improve. Fire on Barennre strert. About 1:80 o'cloxk this morning a fire was dr.covered in the brick residence of Mrs. John K. King, 461 Baronne street. Before it oould be got under control, the interior of the building, with the furniture, was reduced to ruin. The loss will amount to from $3000 to $5000, and is supposed to be covered by inrurance, in what office the reporter could not learn at tho late hour. Mr. King left the city yest.rday aftlrnoon. Two servants wore inr charg, of the house, but disappe:aredl shortly after tlhe alarm was given. The cause of the fire is unknown, as the u,.rvants hwl not breen lfornd whenr this report cliowxl.
