rm: president in doubt.
Protp'sts against th,- Vacuum hill multiply,
and almost all commercial .'ind financial ixniies
in the country an- joining. If the President
disregards them be will teach business men <?(
tin* West and South, as well as of ihe East,
that in trusting him in financial affairs they
have been strangely In error. Yet he waits,
leaving even his nearest friends at Washington
in ilniiiit about his purpose, and refuses io em?
barrassed Industries ."ind trade the relief which
a simple announcement of his determination
to veto tho hill would Immediately give. It ls
reasoned that he wishes ai least t" appear io
lake all lhe time allowed fm* consideration, as
If llle question wel'e o'.ie of gTOVC difficulty. Hilt
In* must luive known before Ihe hill was passed,
as well as h" could know after months *'f In?
vestigation, that it would he false to his record
and an Incalculable injury to the country to
allow the hill i" become a law.
Two motives ore alleged for his hesitation.
The lirst is that silver agitation can lu* slopped
hy allowing this measure to become a lav,-. Bul
tin- President betrays weakness if he --ln'ink*.
from vetoing a free-silver bill, .'ind he knows
that no hurtful measure *'f ihai Mit can be
passed over his vet,.. Tlie pretended danger on
ihai side is purely Imaginary, unless bc is think
Ing p.f his personal popularity with sliver Inda
tlonisis, and not ol' tilt* public welfare. The
other motive la supposed i.? i?e anxiety i" r,-,'i
tin* Tari!'.' Lil! passed, Men have tried to bully
him into approval of thc Vacuum bill hy
threats. They have oven declared thai a free
coinage amendmenl will he added to the Tariff
hill hy Democratic votes if he vetoes the Bland
hill, and that In- will linn lie forced lu sign an,I
approve the measure with a frec^-colnagc sec?
tion or to veto tariff reform. Hui if the Presi?
dent is Influenced hy stn-h threats he is wcak< r
than any opponent has supposed.
Ii is doubtful whether the Democrats who
want free coinage could all ho induced io make
the success of any Tariff hill this year depend
on lhat issue. Part p.f them care Infinitely
moro for Hie change of tariff than for sliver
coinage. Bul if Ibe hill should bo io him in
that shape, tbe President could Instantly send
lt hack, canting upon h's friends in Congress
iln* entire responsibility fur failure io m?nd him
a proper tariff hill without objectionable mone?
tary provisions. The two bouses would then !??
forced t" ad on th" tariff question by Itself.
should they refuse or fall, the responsibility
would not lie in any measure wiih Mr. Cleve?
land, whose record on both questions would
then lie in entire accord wiih his declared inn
vlctions.
The possiiiiiiiy that ih" Tariff hill may be
benton, unless si.m.- favor l< first grouted i" the
silver men, should ii"i disturb Hie President in
Hie least. Rather il should li'- regarded by him
as opening a door of relief from most serii us
responsibilities, Thp- revenue hill as ii stands
ought to in- offensive to him. its outrageous
ami utterly unnecessary Income tax. and l's
shameless bartering! of public interests with
rapacious monopolies, he ought t.. resent iv,-n
wt Democrats hy the thousand in indiana ore
resenting Benator V'oorbeea'H repori in furor
of iln- Pill, li is an Indecent measure, and on?>
whicb can bring nothing hm disgrace upon tho
pally in power, and a reilly strong leader
would joyfully welcome an opportunity to row
pol Congress to pass a inlier revenue hill or
nom*.
it has been Ihe President's ambition to control
his party in harmony wiih his own convictions
of duiy. Whether he win surrender those con
vldlons now. :ii tin- dictation of Southern and
Western Inflationists, even his best friends ap
pear to doubt, which js no! to hi*- credit. Hui
they do not cerise io hope thai he will Justify
their past confidence by a reta measure which
they believe he ls now preparing.

A coon BEGINNING IN NEW PEESEY.
Some Democratic journals which have not
iM'iily supported the New-Jersey ring in iis
endeavor 1" retain power and defy Un- peopl
aro showing sympathy willi ihe conspirators
in their defeat hy misrepresenting th" purposes
p>f th<- Republican Legislature Republicans,
ihey say. an- beginning a revel of sp ills, which
will continue until Hie last Democratic office
holder whom ihey can get at has been turned
out. There is no evidence as yet that any snell
partisan Joh has been undertaken, and we have
no idea that the representatives of iln- Repub?
lican party of New-Jersey, now firmly poa*
sess.il lif tile power Which Hie people voled lo
give them last November, are animated hy such
a spirit There is. nevertheless, a great work
of purification io he done in that Stat.-, ami
those who have been delegated to accomplish
ii are napier an Imperative obligation io proceed
boldly ami steadily. New Jersey has been so
long in tin* eiip ?t profligate ami tyrannical
men that tba task p.f freeing and rehabilitating
ih*- Commonwealth muat require heroic mean?
arra. A little pruning here and lhere will not
answer the purpppse. Thetv is a rank growth
of fraud io he cul away, and the operation '"in?
not he too thorough.
Ii is natural that tin- ?offerers and m.hi.* of 1
their niiip's should attempt io distort ihe nets i
and nrake it appear Hun tbe party which has <
been contending for a principle is using iis tri i
ninph unworthily, Bnt they cannot .i.iv,- th,- i
people, who expressed their will ai ih,. last
election, ami hav.- been affronted hy the dee*
perate tap-He* of those whom they then avant
to get rid of forever. They declared iu Sovem*
ber that they wanted the riiii-' of turbulent
swindlers hy whom they had hoon robbed and
put to shanie foe y.-ars stripped of their power
and. so far ns possihle, of ihelr plunder. They
chose a Legislature for that express purpose, | J
and now thai rich; haa been converted int
might, they expect that Legislature to eganu
iis commission, ami every Individual who ii.
rives authority from it to cooperate. Thei
orders ore thal every ofllce which has been cn
ated, nol to meet a public requirement but t
lill a private pocket, shan be abolished; tho
every extravagant salary shall hp* cul douro t
honest proportions; that every rascal who ha
been living at their expense shall hp* turnei
adrift if he cannot be sent to prison. Theo
are ihe things which the people of New*Jeraej
want lo see done without hesitation or delay.
Those whose duty it is to do them need bar
no fear of being misunderstood so long as the*
go forward In Ibis straight course. The peopl
are unite competent to .Indue Justly their act
.?md the motives which inspire them. Tho wratl
"f the ring and Ihe accusations of iis advocate
will nol warp public opinion nor coal tbe repre
sentatlves of the i.pie the support of a singli
Individual whose ill-will is not ? decoration
The Republican Legislature has made an ex
cellent beginning of reform. We nope and be
Here it will persevere t,, the end with couragi
and disinterested patriotism.

Weavers and Donnellys and the rest of th*
tribe who ha\e been making the welkin rim.
for Ihe last twelve months, tbe public has beeta
surfeited wltb oratory. People who a year agi
would have stood out in the cold p'ii a street
corner and been kindled with enthusiasm by
the wurdi fiUX "f a fakir selling Soap from th*
top of a box would today rise up and po away
from a comfortable seat in a well-appointed
public hall if Ignatius Donnelly himself won
to appear on tin* platform and begin an ad?

most Inflammatory cum words ami blood?
curdling figures "f speech. Tim orators have
overdone lt. The copiousness and tumultuous
ness ami general red headedness with which
ili.y opened their campaign have ceasi-d to ur
rest attention. Thc general public has become
ai rnstomod t i th" eruption.
And yet the orators are keeping it up. They
hare 1.a holding a rhlnwaggery a' Des
Moines, Iowa, al which several nf their most
rapid-firing, long-range fellows unlimbered and
caine ont iii -nal force. The president of a

I when the Inquest opens on Monday morning. Just
where the seventy-five witnesses will come from
j ls a point that may well possie the OTOWd nt nows

.lay by day sine* the shooting was firm male
I known. So far the crme ls encompassed by the
testimony of not mere than twenty-five persona, and
I this list ini-ltides the surgeons, detectives, police?
men, undertakers and others who alway;, play a
leading; part In such inquiries. If, therefore, the
announcement nia.'.e yesterday is only a SCOT ap
proai'h to fact, it ls evident that the police have
obtained a mass of evidence which has not yet
been made public, and srhlch may hair an 1m
i portant bearing in the ease.
The elaborate theory work'.! out yesterday by
I certain Investigators of the ease, with a slaw of

building with Mr. Kiley at thirty-two minutes after
