Mr BLAME and Gen LAN after him I
have seen lit t Introduce essays upon tho
protective system Into their letters of accep

a legitimate necessity for thero Is and
A can bo no doubt about tho declarations of tho
Republican Convention upon the subject of
4 tariff and revenue They distinctly and un
equivocally commit tho party t tho policy
of protection Tho Republican candidates
might havo simply referred t the platform
a embodying their opinions and tho opinion I
of their party That would have been
enough for everybody knows how the Republican
f publican party stands toward protection
The writers of the Democratic tariff plank
woro not so foi lunate Serious doubt Is expressed
pressed as to their moaning Advertently
4 or Inadvertently they did not express their
7 vlows with such clearness as t avoid the I
possibility of being misunderstood Their
declaration Is understood In ono way by
ecmo and In another other
Bro pooplo anl way Jby
s people Home are sure that It means protec
c tion and some that it moans free trade i
I remains for Mr CLEVELAND t say what
ho understands It to mean and t say It
c clcftrly I there U i anything ambiguous

nothlDff ambiguous about the opinions oi
the MMlt Ills declaration may bo a

The Slow rogress of Cholcrn
c I Is true that somo past cholera epidemics
have suddenly become wldospirad after hav
ing for a considerable time bon confined to
C a single locality But there Is much reason
rrcncul mcnt In tho circumstance that
4 the present visitation of the disease afflicts
only a limited area of the south of France
I and Is not spreading much beyond the neigh
borhood of 1U 1 first outbreak
I Is true that we have had reports of tho
appearance of cholera even as far off as
P and at Vienna two supposed cases
wore discovered lat Sunday It Is however
officially denied from Pails that any Asiatic
cholora has In that In such
hllppclr city sUfb a

many false alarms a to tho appearance of
the disease t which other disorders bear a
tf creator or less likeness Even hero in Now
York cases of what was called cholera were
reported tho other day though thoy wore
nothing more than Instances of usual sum I
s mer maladies
iv So long ago 03 the tlrst week tn June tho
3j cholera made Its appearance in Toulon
4 Bovcn weeks have passed since then and tho
disease is still oplduiula only In tho vicinity

Revision In France Uncertain
Tho action of tho committee of tho French
Senate t which tho revision project 3 re
ferred renders Itdoubtfnl I whether oven the
very moderate constitutional amendments
proposed by M Fcntir can bo carried out
While professing In general rm to favor
alterations In the organic Inw I tho com
mlttoo proposes to strike out tho
only substantial fcaluio of tho programme
that namely which defines tho Bohatoa
financial powers I after debate tho upper
tloueo persists In upholding the conclusions
of this report It will place Itself In sharp an
tagonism to the Chamber of Deputies which
would sooner abandon tho scheme of revision
vision altogether than confine Itself to In
setting n few republican platitudes In tho
fundamental law devised by tho Versailles
Tho secret of tho Senates unwillingness to
assent to the ropohcd limitations of Its
powers over money bills lies doubtless In tho
nlfglvlng which Is but to well grounded
that the ConstitutionalCongressonco asscm
tbat tie CnsUlutonal Coofrlssonco IS < I
bled might Iofus to be bound by tho Minis
terial programme A we have previously
shown tho theory that tho two Chambers
acting their separate capacities as branch
es of a more legislature can prescribe tho
action of a body clothed with absolute au
thority over tho organic law Is tantamount
tho greater than tho
to saying that parts arC rentr
whole and that tho creature can dictate to
its creator I Is known that tho advanced
tlatllcals have determined t insist upon this
view after the Congress has convened and
hat their weak resistance to the FERRY
scheme of revision was duo t a conviction
that no antecedent stipulations would prove
blndlnl on the Convention Moreover the
Premier himself Is sad to havo lot slip some
Incautious remarks upon the subject from
which the Senate may Infer that ho not only
anticipates the assertion of Independence on
tho part of the Congress but will not very
much exert himself keep It strictly within
the limits sketched beforehand
Now unless theso Conservative Republi
cans who believe that a certain proportion
of life members should be retained In the
Sot and that the choice of the elective
members should b confined t select con
stituencies can count upon the Cabinets re
sisting any attempt to go outside of tho concerted
certed programme they know that tho com
position and character of the upper House
may b radically transformed A great
many French Republicans would like to have
ho Senators placed on exactly the same
footing as tho Deputies with regard both t
lie method of election and the term of of
lice Such a change In tho judgment of the
ienato would b fatal t Its dignity and
usefulness and If would probably b followed
by the abolition of tho second chamber
to ablton send chambr a
an unnecessary appendage The truth Is
that a single legislative assembly Is best
adapted t the present circumstances of
France For there an upper House neither
represents tho landcd interest A tho House
of Lords docs in England nor guarantees
he reserved rights of confederated States
like tho American Senate I Franco tho
and Is distributed among tho masses of the
people and an agelong process of central
atlon which was hastened rather than r
tarded by the revolution of 0 h created
ho most compact cohesive and homogenc
ous nation In the world
I may be that the Senate can b prevailed
upon to reject the report of Its cdmmlttee
and adopt the FERRY programme But If it
docs and tho two Houses come together in
joint session at Versailles at which place
tot Paris the Constitutional Congress will
assemble wo may expect to sec the Senate
undo tho target of bitter criticism and not
Improbably tho victim of measures artfully
contrlvcd to destroy Its Influence

These buildIngs thus placed In u conven

at South Kensington and It Is supplemented
by the arlous annexes and adjuncts which
are usual In such enterprises The floor
space secured for tho exhibits Is mora than
73000 feet and outside tho buildings nursery
men occupy plots for tho display of plant
The namo of this exhibition Is itself a suf i
ficient Indication of Its 1 character and pur
poses I concerns Itself with whatever I
taLes to tho growth care and preservation
of forests and since both tho scientific and
the mercantile phases of aiboi culture aro

Mr HENRY Bunoif tho man who believe
In the inalienable right of cats t steal milk
without liability to punishment baa made
an Important i historical discovery
On tho Fourth of July there was I bullfight
fight at Dog City In tho State of Kansas
Mr Brnau has learned of this occurrence
with regret and ho has expressed his regret
In a halfcolumn lettor to the Governor of
Kansas In which ho tells that magistrate
hat bull fighting Is a pastime which has
more than any other cause corrupted and
wasted tho minds and energies of the Span
lab people until national stagnation and do
rcneracy aro visible In their shrunken tri
try and loss of political Influence In the
councils of other States
Wo cal tho attention of historians to this
novel view
Its correctness seems to be confirmed by
the evil effect which this ono bull fight has
already produced In Kansas The bovine
contest has so whetted the appetite ol voters
hero for foreign blood that the State Is
likely t go for BLAIKE
Tho bull fight as a Republican campaign
agency should b suppressed

and la I the Booth ot France all trad and In

of Europe usually lives upon the travelling for

ho cholera mado its appearance It Is I well
known that a large number of Americans have
already cancelled their ongsaomonts for ocean
passages and a still lamer number have left
France for England A tow eases of cholera In
tho British capital will probably bring them all
by whore
home Yet there Ii I a country near
they could spend a delightful summer In abso
lute safety and that ii I Switzerland The pure
air of tho mountains and lakes renders epi
demic In that coantry almost Impossible At
all events they have never marie any ravages
there Tho coasts of Normandy Brittany Uol
and and Belgium are also quite safe provided
one keeps away from the large ports There It I
consequently no reason for Americans who nro
at present abroad to rush home Scotland to
ts I nn excellent asylum In case of danger
The next big thing In the way of London ex

can bo seen on thl continent Things not
susceptible of transportation the Yosemite
valley the Ooiden Ode Plymouth Rock or tho
Brooklyn Bridge will be adequately Illustrated
Every species of animal from the grizzly bear
and tho alligator downward will b represented
sented A special department Is t b devoted
to ward politicians and their performances
The animals used for food will b dally cooked
In the American style and terrapin and can
vas bl < k are to b rendered familiar to the

Ito American performances are to be given

a diminutive Block Exchange or a huge bucket
shop connected by cable with NoW York and

It may b possible however that the mon

persistently continued is I a preliminary step

Amateur fishing has so far proved t b very
poor almost everywhere this MUD The
sportsmen indulging tn blue fishing around
Fire Island are the only one that do not complain
plain Salmon fishing Is reported or poor
all over the North The black basso the St
Lawrence refuse t bite at all having an un
precedented opportunity for feasting upon Im
mense shoals of menhaden The troutflahing
season is declared to have been miserable and
curiously enough tho Fulton street fishmong
ers say that poor as tho season was they al
ways had moro trout on band than they could
possibly sol Tho general depression of business l
oon seams to have affected even the demand
for this little luxury of the table
Th ro seems to bo something wrong with
fishes everywhere From England cornea the
news that sharks are playing havoc with tho
fisheries all along the western coast They
destroy especially tho mackerel shoals but as
medical evidence has declared the mackerel of
British waters t b diseased and unfit for
human food this ea the loss will probably
not b very great
Poor fishing and cold vrjajbor haTnmjitBrlally
destroyed the prolocta of seaside and river
lesdrts of tho sportsmen But the other water
lug omens do not fare better Saratoga Is pro
nounced to b duller than It has ever been In
the last ton rears Cape Hal and the Thousand
Island are almost deserted Evon Long
Branch Is a heavy sufferer the lPnes and
aellltle of its communications wit Now York
Ot course the general retrenchment of ex
penses is i the main cause of the dulnass of the
season But Long Branch and Saratoga have
been also hurt by the horse racing being over
done A six weeks meeting ts sow kald at each
ot these placoi besides those of Chicago and
Brighton Beach Thero are neither horse
men nor money enough for all this Ypt the
migrating racing crowd formed always an Important

Chicago sfmculators have not yet made up
their minds whether the cholora will prove
beneficial to them The majority argue that It
is I sure t put orlcea up a ships from other
countries will be bothered by quarantine reg
ulations They tried to put price up accord
ingly but have not succeeded so far except for
corn of which tho visible I supply Is I very small I
and no new grain can b oxpeetod before December
cember Tho talk about quarantine Interfering
with the importation of wheat is I 1 nonsense
There Is no cholera In either India Australia
or Russia and there Is more wheat everywhere
than can possibly be wanted Our own
surplus after providing amply for next
years home consumption will probably
b ovor 200000000 bushel besides tho sur
plus which will b left from last year The la
boring people can safely rely upon 75cent
wheat during tbe coralMt 1 year The demand
for provision will of coarse decrease I chol

In 1858 there was a violent struggle going on
In Maine t overthrow the license law enacted
by tho Democrats In 1854 which measure as Is I
well known succeeded and the present Pro
hibition taw WIts enacted At that time Mr
Blame owned and edited the Kenneboo Joist
nl and wrote and published the strongest and

the license law and In advocacy of prohibition

In the State are those who a upholding the
most extreme prohibition measures
Indeed w fad oa examining the statute
books of the State of Maine that since the
final adoption of prohibition In 1858 the law
baa been changed thirtythree time by the
Republican friends and allies of Mr Elaine
and each time making its Ironelad feature
more oppressive and prescriptive until tho

been virtually owned as well as controlled by
