Uirka rd.
The new Tariff bill is an anachronism, which
would have appeared less absurd if it had beeu
offered at any time before the late elections.
Brea lo De-uocrats who had supposed their
leaders could be taught something by phe?
nomenal defeat, it is surprising. Prepared RR
Democrats only and in Beeret, under the con
siant direction of the President, it betrays the
absence of tho sobering influence of frank com?
parison of opposing convictions. In parts it is
clearly nut. of harmony with itself, where po
lilical considerations since the recent election
seem to have prompted departure from its the?
ories, but in the main it justifies the claim that1
the committee has gone straight OB, as if the
wishes of the people deserved no aUeiilioii.
Its must characteristic feature is the general
substitution of ad valorem for specific dillies.
This is in contempt of the judgment of com?
petent ecoii'Htiists. including some eminent
Democrats, and Secretary Manning. President
Clevelands first choice for the Treasury, who
strongly urged specific duties on the ground that
by them only could fraud be effectually cheeked.
Hut the extreme Fiic Trade theorists have al?
ways been anxious for ad valorem dillies only,
as if because these are most easily evaded and
practically least efficacious. The committee
could hardly have decided to open wide the
doors lo fraud had it not been anxious to de
prive American industries of defence more com?
pletely than the people could discover from I
mere comparison of rates. Hesides all its open
blows it Wtahed to deliver a stab in the dark.
lt should be a fatal objection to this bill that,
unlike any other ever proposed by either party,
it deliberately and intentionally create* a deficit.
Hs advocates say that Hie deficit will lie about
$30,004000. which they intend to make good
by later enactments, perhaps au Income tax.
But there can be no certainty about the passage
of a future measure, especially of such a char?
acter. No other party has ventured lo cut
down revenues bejrood the needs of I'ovcrninent
without providing in the same act for corre?
sponding increase from other sources. The re?
duction of revenues will probably be found even
greater than the committee represents. The
additions to the free list alone, including wool,
iron ore, copper, lumber, sulphuric add, salt
and coal, willi ni.iny other articles which I'ro
tection only has enabled the country to produce,
will take more than flOtOfNMMM from the cus
lonis receipts. Some of these changes have
mel opposition so strong that il Beamed hardly
possible the Coiiiinillee would disregard lt.
Wool-growers of the South protested against
I destruction of their industry as earnestly as Hie
; growers of Ohio or Michigan, but without
j avail. Coal and iron miners of Southern States
j protested, not willing to accept ihe destruction
! of their industries as the first choice fruit of a
\ thirty years' struggle for Democracy, and slin
? liar protests came from copper and liiiulier pfO
' ducers. lint willi the committee of Democrats a
grain of theory seems to have outweighed a lon
of experience. The change in iliese articles will
jot BB rely lake millions from the revenue, but
cvlll deprive several hundred thousand Ameri?
can workers of their power to purchase foreign
:>r domestic products.
The duties on manufactured products are re?
duced, apparently, rather more than -io per
cent in the aggi- 'gate. Hut the pro|Mised reduc?
tions do not appear to be go?eraed by any in?
telligent rule, and the change fruin specific
to ad valorem duties makes it a task of tome
days' labor to deleriniiie even approximately
how far the reduction in some schedules ex?
tends, lu the woollens schedule more than half
Hie duly would be taken off, cvidcnlly, even If
the goods should be honestly invoiced wiilmui
undervaluation, and the change to ad valorem
duties will make the practical effect still great?
er, lu tin- iron schedule the reduction on pig
from SO tS per ton to _tyf pet cent, which means l><
at present prices f] 00 to RSM per ton, must lu
shutaup many I'.isicrn and Southern furnaces.
Hails are reduced from *1.'? ll per ton io 28 per
cent, which means at latest quotations about
pi ?"'<?. and on most finished products the duties
are heavily cut. (in glass the reduction is over
one-half, and on linens from 40 per cent up- I sq
ward, lt ls an added injury to industry that ! gi'
the duties on woollens, lieing deemed too high j flo
as fixed iu the bill, are to l>c further reduced I Tl
five points in five years on a sliding scnle,
which would compel makers to light all that
time against falling markets, If they should
renturc to contend at all.
In abolishing the duties on eggs and rege

abolition or reduction of duties on bread stuffs

Justice Bnraard after protracted and inex?
plicable delay has ordered the arrest of John V.
McKane for contempt of court. The Tribune
two days after the election pointed ont the of?
fence! of which he was guilty, namely, disobedi?
ence of an oilier of the court and offering r<'"
?{stance tn the writs issued hy Justice Harnard.
It waa dearly practicable far Ita Justice to
order Ita arrest of this lawbreaker on the day
after election, and without Grand Jury action
to punish him by imprisonment ami line for
criminal contempt. Why there has been inac?
tion wc do not know. McKane, after wantonly
defying the authority of the Supreme Court,
weiii South for ? little duck shooting and re?
lumed to make insolent threats of suing the
newspapers for libel. The indulgence and lenity
with which he had been treated only served to
render him more reckless in act and more con
temptnona of public opinion.
The conn whoae mandate this lawbreaker
rloJatcd has at hts! taken measures for vindi?
cating its authority. My ordering his arrest
.liMice Kantard assumes the obligation of cn
forchtg obedience to law ami of punishing a
criminal who openly resisted the processes of
the Supremo Court. McKane has large re
aonrcea of wealth He will undoubtedly em?
ploy astute lawyers, who will take advantage
of every technicality and make Ita best (xis
slide defence Of his lawless action. We shall,
however, be greatly surprised and solely disap
pointed, if as the result of these conieinpt pro?
ceedings' he escape! immediate punishment. The
prat latona of ita rode respecting contempt arc
clear and explicit. Tbe Coori of Appeals, bi
Thc Tribune has already pointed out, has sus?
tained in a parallel csac thc competency of the i
conn to punish offenders for criminal coo
tempi by linc ami imprisonment. I'very good
citizen win rejoice heartily over the new tarn
of Hie prosecutions against McKane, and will

landon, Nov. 37.-The death of Prince Alexander
of Battenberg has caat a deep gloom over thc court,
for he is sincerely lamented by the Queen aag
Princess Beatrice. Several guests who had been Bv
vlted to Windsor were put off, and some court fun?,
tiona which were Impending have been postponed.
The Castle has been very sombre during the but tea
days, and lt ls probable that some of the Christmas
gayetles at Osborne which have been contemrlated
will be abandoned. Prince Alexander leaves a fortuna
of about ?50,000, and the Bulgarian Government wUl
continue to lils widow and children the penatoa
of ?2,000 a year which he had for some time re*
celved. The Emperor of Austria, too. has often**
to settle an adequate Income on the Countess Harts
nau and her two children. It was not generally
known that the late Prince Alexander of Batten*
berg and Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria were warm
friends, and carried on a brisk correspondence.
Ferdinand has given 10,000 francs toward the na*
tlonal monument which is to be erected to tba
memory of Alexander In Bulgaria.
It ls expected that the betrothal of the widowed
Crown Princess Stephanie of Austria to Archduke
Franz Ferdinand will take place at Christmas.
The Princess was born on May 21, 1164, and Ute
Archduke on December 18, 18?.
It ts said to be probable that before long the
Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Ootha will retire from tb*
mastership of Trinity House, which oiTlee he hsa
held for many years, and will be succeeded either
by the Prince of Wales or, as ls more likely, by
the Duke of York, who, like his uncle, ls sn officer
of the Royal Navy. The Duke's retirement wUl
be much regretted, aa he has been a very efficient
master, and has always had the interests of Trin?
ity House at heart.

Bsa Prince of Wales, who is a standing authority i

Colonel Colville, who has been selected by tho
Queen to succeed the late Slr Christopher Teesdale
as Master of Cerenonles. has been for nearly
twenty-three years the treasurer and controller'
of the Duke of Edinburgh's household, a place,
which presumably will now b* abolished. It is
understood that the Duke of Ssxe-Coburg-Gotha,
strongly urged the Queen to appoint Colonel Col*
ville, but the place would have gone elsewhere had
lt nm been that the applicant for whom lt was ln
t.iii.'l does not possess the fluent knowledge of
French and Herman, which is an Indispensable
qualification. The appointment ot Colonel Colville
has given much satisfaction to the Diplomatic,
Corps, as he ls very popular and has a thorough,

post is worth ?700 a year. Colonel Colville will at?
