This liberal sum sent by Mr. Cleveland

W . Truly, tho spirit of Democracy Is abroad,
H" ',. and It begins to blnzo.
ifo K The DocUno of tho Great Shoo City.
S1 ij' Lynn, in Massachusetts, so long famous
gy f all over tho world as tbo great centre of tho
K, '. ehoemaklng Industry, has of lato years beon
$' ,- losing its cmlnenco In this respect. Tho
$? t Uoofoii Herald theroforo has been question-
f f, lng both manufacturers nnd workmen In or-
W $ dor to ilnd out tbo causes of the decline.
m ' Formerly Lynn held tho palm In the mak-
H ;. lng of ohoap shoes, and had something llko
Sf i Sj a monopoly of tho manufacturo of the
IS , ohoapor grades of women's shoes espeolnlly.
I. Now it has lost nil that advantago, and Is
x unablo to compoto with othor places In tho
production of tho lower kind of goods.
" xou cannot now mako a medium grade
" ehoo In Lynn nnd get a proilt on it," says a
; ' manufacturer; and the. remark Is conilrmcd
by a workman, who acknowledges that "the
V' cheap -work has unquestionably gone out of
I k Lynn." During tho last live years tho
Y? country towns of Now England on tho ono
'& Bldo,and tho shoo manufactories of the West
V on tho othor, have been steadily beating Lynn
J In tha matter of pricos, bocauso of their
i! ability to produco moro cheaply; and the
Ibfc-i ground lost seems to bo beyond recovery,
fig Ono of tlio Lynn manufacturers says that
' bo used to soil great quantities of shoes to
j tho West at $2, but soon it was ablo to pro-
;k, & duco shoes Itself at that price. Then ho put
m t, blm promptly, and now " thoy do not want
ff , to seo a shoo over $1.25, and soon therowlll
wfc m. bo no plooo for a shoo above $1." "With such
Ss,' prices Lynn cannot oorapeto, for at tho West
M' i,r labor Is cheaper, as It also Is In tho country
m C- towns which are drawing off so large a part
g' J'1" of tho tnulo from tho old shoo centre Tho
'ff, ?j manufaeturors estlmato that $10,000,000 of
k h business has loft Lynn, halt to go to tho
p West and half to various parts of Now Eng-
'jjL g land. As tho present business of tlio town
Vh Is only about $13,000,000, tlio loss thorefore
W, h has boon of startling magnitude. Tho town
1$, has now between 40,000 nnd 50,000 inhabitants,
- and, oxcopt for this loss, tho manufacturers
doclaro that tho number would bo 75,000.
&&i 1 " Wo oro standing still," says one of thorn,
K1- whllo the country Is booming."
K Tho competition, too, is having tho effect
of driving manufacturing establlshmontB
W from Lynn to comtry places of Now Eng-
or j K land whero thoy can got cheaper labor, and
E Bj whero tlio communities offer practical In-
duooraenta for their coming In onlcr to get
lf ? ' tho ndvnntago of an increase of population
P J". ' and trudo. Tho Boston Herald gives a list
fr of twoiity-llvo such manufucturors, and ono
23' f, of tbo largesUof tho manufacturers remain-
W'.ii lng says that "overy day tho conviction b;
Kf, & more and moro f 01 cod uKn us that wo must
p i either makaA shoo cheap enough to ennblo

SS r turers, or retire ultogetlior" from Lynn.
Y L' "Wooroonlydolnylng tho final stop until
JS" f' tho moment when avo shall have found a
i A, suitable location for our now factory."
X jjt' Tho roafcou of this destruction of Lynn's
' Bupronmoy lu shocmuldng, tho inunufiictur-
'i ' era docbaro to be "tho exactions of tbo lubor
.; unions, which linvu lLxod nnd enforcel
' prlcca for tbo lower grades of work that
, . novo raude It Impossible to do It In Lynn at

I "" , Tlu-y pay that such work Is still pro-
' duced In Lynn nt 11 profit by a few jimnu-
B. facturcrs, and that whit hia been lost

In this vlow that Lynn must tako lta
chances under tho laws of trado tho work
mon nro undoubtedly corroct. As this coun
try grows larger and Its manufactures de
velop and multiply in other districts, Lynn
must of course loso Its supremacy In tho
making of shoes. Ono of tho men puts tho
case very sonslDly thus :
"I hotll lite tha reople whs cUIm that n oniht to
do ometuliui to brim lh hoo builutu btlt to Lynn

That Is all very truo, but if a wholo

operation of tho laws of trade, bo must tho

Production, of course, goes whero It Is
cheapest, or, ns n gonoral rule, whero labor
Is oheapest, and Lynn has lost tlio manufac
turo of tho lower grndcB of shoes for tho
reason thoy can bo mndo clsowbcro ut lower
prices bocauso wages nro lower.
Cut tho lowest Bcalo of wagos at which
labor can bo ohtnlnod must in tlio end bo tlio
general standard. Accordingly, the shoe
makers' unions nro endeavoring to bring
about a combination to ralso wages when
thoy arc low, and so ilx a common standard
by " iovelling up." But that Is n task of tro
mondous difficulty. So far, as tho caso of
Lynn proves, It has not boon successful

Wo wero tho moro gratified at tho prompt
rosponao elicited by our request for subscrip
tions to a Paknell Litigation Fund, bo
causo, as wo weio well nwaro, tho momont is
unfavorable to appeals of tho kind. When
Americans nro in tho hoot of a Presidential
canvass, thoy nro not cosily Induced to tnko
n Uvoly interest in tho nffnlrs of other coun
tries, not oven of thoso with which they aro
most closely nlllcd by race and sympathy.
Nevertheless. It Is a duly, which we gladly
perform, to point out that tho momentous
litigation In which Mr. Paiinell Is nominally
plaintiff, but In which his enemies will strive
to put tlio Irish Nationalist cause on tho
defensive, will, unluckily, not wait until tho
elections In the United States nro over.
Tho Paiinell Commission Is' to convono
in September, and tho Scotch libel suit
will be pressed to trial with corresponding
expedition. Tho outlay for logal fees and
disbursements which theso dual proceedings
will lmposoupon tho Irish leader compolled
ns ho virtually Is to copo single-handed with
tho Ilrltlsh Government, as well as with tlio
enormous resources of tlio London Times
cannot bo borno by any man of moderate
means, unless ho is generously aided by
thoso whoso champion ho Is.
This Is bo thoroughly understood In Eng
land that, as wo brought to tho attention of
our readers tbo othor day, a movement is on
foot among British Liberals of tho Glad
stone typo to contribute toward tho Inevita
ble oxpensos of tho prosecutions In England
and In Scotland, wherein Mr. Paknell's
reputation and tho future of tho Nation
alist party nro seen to bo at stake It
would 111 become us on this sldo of
tho Atlantio, after zealously cooperating in
thoroturn of &3 Parnellltes to Parliament
from Ireland, to show oursolves niggard
now, when tho Pnrnelllte party, In the per
son of its chief, is on trial at tho bar of
British publlo opinion, whoso current was
but yesterday turning strongly 1 n their favor.
All subscriptions to tho Parnell Litiga

columns ot The Stjn, and we trust that thoy

Wo publish to-day a sketch of tho charac
ter and enraer of Mrs. Belva Lockwood,
which Is the more desorvlng of attention bo
causo It 1b by a writer who Is not in political
sympathy with tho woman candidate for
President. "I hate and abhor the very
thought of woman's suffrago," says our cor
respondent. Yet this political opponent has beon
brought under completo subjection to tho
personal charms and tho moral and In
tellectual superiority of tho woman candi
date. Let us theroforo carefully regard tha
picture drawn by so frank an admirer, re
joicing that tho portrait gallery of this cam
paign exhibits to us the soft and lovely lines
of fcmlnlno features as well as tho rugged
lineaments ot tho masculine physiognomy.
Wlthontlio propriety, our correspondent
avoids mention of tho exact ago of Belva
Lockwood, for a woman Is only as old as
sho looks, and her looks aro theroforo tho
pertinent matter. Mrs. Lockwood, it booms,
Is "of the typo known as gray blonde,"
and as sho weighs 150 pounds, with n height
of C foot 8 Inches, sho Is both tall and well
proportioned; a llttlo sparo, porhaps, but
commanding in flguro, and all tho fatronger
for her modor.ito height. This, physical nd
vnntago, too, lias been caiefully cultivated
and developed, for In youth " her feats of
running, rowing, jumping, and horseback
riding woro proverbial," and oven now "sho
Is an enthusiastic lover of tho trloyclo,"
But sho dous not sit her trloyclo astrldo, as
a woman rights woman might be expected
to do. Sho uses "a seat as In a buggy."
This conservatism Is consistent with tho
wholo courso of Mrs. Belva Lockwood,
ns dcscilbed by our correspondent, Sho lias
nlnys "avoided eccentricity," and tho
" nggrofcslvo muAoullnlty whloh many ot her
own school of thought affect." It is true
that sho has novor worn a corset, nnd pre
sumably pays no heed to tho bustle fashion
of tho period, but "sho has no sympathy
whatever with Dr. Mart Walker In either
vlevs or dross." Nor does sho permit hor
public and professional work to interfere
with the performance of berdomestlo duties.
In hoi religious views, too, sho Is conserva
tive; but, though "a firm bollovor" sho Is
"no bigot." Hor couutonanco has "an In
definable oxprosslou of motherllness, earnest
good humor, and gontlo good will, not un
mixed with tho old school graco that Is win
ning rather than remnrkuble."
Such Is tlio woman cnudldato for Presi
dent as sho appears to the oyes of our cor
respondent. Ab to her history, wo aro told
that Mrs. Bklva Lockwood was born at
Itoyalton, in this State, In n year properly
left In doubt; that sho was married nt tlio
early ngo of seventeen, and, having soon
bocomo a widow, chose for hor bocond hus
band the Baptist minister whoso name sho
now bears, Forty-ouo years ago she was
graduated from Gonobco College, but In 1870
she took a second dugroo from Syracuse
Unlvnntlty, and subsequently wont through
tlio Law School at Washington, whero sho
has practised tho legal profession for fifteen
yuan. This "peculiar innboullno calling,"
sho says, " has been cusy woik for her, hor
Instincts being all argumentative and judi
cial, and a fluont snoech serving as useful
.handmaid la their expression."
A to bu jwllUcftl views, our correspond
ent tells us only that Mrs. Delta Look
wood la In fnvorof a Fodenvl dlvorco law.
of an " International penco law whloh shall
abolish war," and of tho abolition ot tho bob
tall car; nnd that sho "objects to chapo
ronage," bollovlng that boys and girls
Bhould bo trusted together without any
other watch Bavo tliat of tholr own eenso
of honor and propriety. Unfortunate
ly, tho Fedora! divorce law would bo In op
position to tho Constitution; tlio Interna
tional poaco lnw Is lmpmctlcnblo at this
stogo of tho world ; tho bobtail car question
has not cntorod Into tho domain of Fcdornl
politics, and tho chaperonago question could
not woll got Into politics nt all. But It is
Interesting to know tho bont of tho mind of
tho woman candldato as to what is of tho
foremost political concern. Froo trado and
tho flshory treaty aro of courso subjects too
dry for her consideration, and wo rojolco
that it Is bo. Wo get enough about them
from tho men candidates.
But our correspondent satisfies us as to
ono point. It Mrs. Delta Lock-wood bo
comoa President, sho will keep tho Whlto
IIouso In a good condition, for alio Is not ono
of thoso bluo stockings who lot tho dust and
cobwobs lncroaso whllo thoy poro over musty
volumes. Sho refers to hor record ns proof
that publlo work has novor tempted her to
neglect her housekeeping duties.
And yet, whon tho Womon's Congress wns
hold In Washington not long ago, tho fair
delegates wero disposed Ut turn tho cold
shoulder on this ndmlrnblo woman I All
theso Indications load us to tear that tho
number ot votes Tor Mrs. Belva Lockwood
from among her own box will bo vory fow.
But It is a great thing to bavo a woman can
didate for President!
Bishops on Moral und Social Questions.
Tho Bishops composing tho Pan-Anglican
Confcronco, recently concluded at London,
havo Issued an Encyollca! Letter, and with It
tho formal resolutions or conclusions of tho
Conforenco. Ab thoso documents ombody
tho opinions and expross tho sentiment of
tha Church of England and tho Episcopal
Church of this country, regarding the great
moral and social questions of tho tlmo, thoy
aro ot general Interest.
Tho committoo of tho Confcronco to which
was committed tho subject of methods of
combating intemperance, declared very posi
tively " that tho main weapon to bo used In
this warfare Is tho prnotico ot total ab
stinenco from Intoxicating liquors by those
who deslro to help tholr follow men." But
tho Encyclical Lotter Is moro cautious, as It
woll might bo, for If tho Bishops In confer
ence woro polled for tho purpose, It would
probably bo found that there arovory few
total abstainers among thorn. Thoreforo
they could not enforce total abstinence as a
"Highly valuublo as wo bellove total ab
stlnonco to bo as a means to an ond," say
tho Bishops, "wo deslro to discountenance
tho languago which condomns tho uso of
wine as wrong-In Itself, independently of Its
effects on ourselves or on others, and wo
have expressed our disapproval of a reported
practice of substituting some othor liquid
in tho celebration of Holy Communion."
That is, they loavo tho question ot drink or
no drink to be decldod according to tho Indi
vidual conscience or prudence.
Ab to sexual purity thero Is no such differ
ence. Tho letter proclnlras "a crusade
against that sin which Is before oil others a
dclllement of the body of Cubist and a dese
cration of tho temple ot the Holy Spirit,"
and it especially commends "the earnest
languago of tho report" of tho committee on
the subject. In that report theso declara
tions aro modo for the warning of all Chris
"Waaolemnly declare that a life o( parity li alone
worthy of a belsff created In tho Imaf e of God.
"We declare that for CbrUtlau tha obllgaUon to

"We declare that aufeof chaittty for the unmarried

"We declare that no one known to be living an Im
moral Uf e onirht to ba received In Chrlitlan aocletr.
"Weaolemnly protest ajralnit all lowering of the
aanctlty of marriage."
But whon It comes to dealing with tho
practical question of what to do with tho
polygamous converts to Christianity in
heathen countries, tho Bishops encounter
an obstaclo which thoy vainly try to sur
mount. Thoy recommend that "persons liv
ing in polygamy bo not admitted to bap
tism, but that they may bo accepted as can
didates and kept under Christian Instruction
until such tlmo as thoy shall bo in a posi
tion to accept tho law of Cubist." Do they
mean to Incite tho polygamous convert to
givo up all his wives except one, in order
to obtain tho prize of baptism ; or would thoy
withhold the fcacrament until all bis wives
oxcopt ono bad dlod t In tlio first contin
gency what is to become of the wlvoa cast off
as the price of baptism? and in the second
what is to become of the husband If his wives
survive him ? Then, again, they pormlt tho
admission ot a polygamous wlfo to com
munion, though thoy exclude tho husband.
But It the man Is barred out by his adultery
according to Christian theory, why Is tho
woman let In, when sho Is living In tho same
This question of what to do about polyga
mous converts Is ono ot tho most vexatious
with which Christian missionaries havo to
deal, and tho Encyclical Lotter docs noth
ing to help them to a logical conclusion. It
rather leaves tho matter worse oonfoundod,
especially as tho patriarchs of tlio Bible
wero all polygamlsts.
Tho report of tho Committee on Socialism,
of which tho Bishop ot Manchester was
Chairman, with tho Bishops of Michigan
and Mississippi among the members. Is
" submitted " mcroly, nnd not " commended,"
It is a rather roundabout document in gen
eral opposition to tho thoorles of the Social
ists, and advocates only tho proposition "that
laborers shall bo encouraged in habits of
thrift. In order that with tho property thus
acquired they may purchase land or shores
la societies for cooKratIvo production,"
But lncldontally tho report expresses no
doubt " that Government can do much to pro
tect the class known as proletarians from
thoovll ofleetsof tinchcrked competition;"
and it questions ''iwhothor tho hystom of
tuxntlon might not bo varied in a sonso moro
fuvorablo to tlio laboicrs than now exists."

It Is expected that tho Republican Senators
will hold a caucus this woek to determine
what policy they shall pursue with toferenco
to Mr. Cleveland's Itotaliation message.
Homo of them think that a bill framed In
accordance with Mr. Cleveland's sugges
tions should at otico bo reported. Others
contend that tho unused powors ot retalia
tion given to tho Executive by Congress
a yenr nnd o half ago nro sufficient. Thero
Is hero opportunity for a vigorous debate.
It la unfortunate that tbo Domocratlo sldo

It wns In 18.72 that the wlno of Maderla was
