Insulting and Impertinent communication

me In a false position by reMon of recent

mot upon IU authors
Tho Governor Is correct In describing this
forged letter a Insulting and impertinent
Its terms and purport It advised him to
abandon hU canvass for the Presidential
nomination and go In t support Mr
CLEVELAND at the very time that Mr
CuTEUuro was Appearing before the pub
Ito through his most Intimate friends and
official advisors such as Secretary FAIR

The Eighth Senate District I
For the period ot three weeks negotiations
benign and harmonious In purpose but mys
terious I charter have been going forward
between the representatives of what is known
a the New York Democracy and what is
known as the County Democracy With the
overwhelming body of New York city Dem
ocrats opposed to the pretensions of both
whether combined or separate and with no
municipal contest In sight until 189 mucu
of tho energy employed in tee negotiations
appears to have been wasted But the fact
f inot t b forgotten that a good share of
what numerical strength and following
those two factions possess I found in what
Is known a the Eighth Senate district rep
resented by the Hon LISPENARD START
the solitary Republican Senator from the city
of New York His predecessor was yie Hon
CORNELIUS VAN COT now Postmaster Both
owed their success t Democratic divisions
of the kind sought t b composed by the
mysterious harmonlzers and difference
adjusters who have 1 long and so recently
been conferring Mr SWATS plurality
two years ago was but 805 the Joint vote of
the two Democratic candidates was 1059 In
excess ot the Republican vote Had there
been but one Instead of two Democratic
candidates a solid Democratic delegation
from this city In the State Senate would
have been the result That body is now
composed of nineteen Republicans and
thirteen Democrats and I there I t be any
change In this years election the Eighth
Benate district Is one of those which the
Democrats must
Dmorats mut carry
With a union ot all factions of the Democracy
cy on legislative candidates last year a
delegation was sent to Albany from this
city composed of twentytwo Democrats out
o the whole number of twentyfour This
result secured a Democratic majority In the
lower branch of the Legislature for the first
time in many years and the opportunity
for the first time since 1875 of electing a
Democratic United States Senator
Dmorto Unit Stt Snatr
A Governor of the State for the period of
three years I t be elected in November
i
and at the time
Ue same tms thirtytwo Sena
tors who will b In office beyond the
election of 1m Upon the political complexion
plexion of the Senate will depend the degree
of support which the Democratic Governor
will receive a well as tho acts of the wholo
Legislature in many matters of Importance
among them a now census and the r ppor
tlonment which the populous and growing
communities Inexorably demand ua measure
of Jutlco and fair representation
Thus the situation In the Eighth Senate
district becomes unusually Important slnco
that I the only district which the Republi
cans by reason of Democratic divisions havo
been able t carry These are the figures

The Biblical theology which Prof Bniaas
expounds t the candidates fo the Presby
terian ministry In tho Union Theological
Bemlnary Is based on that theory of tho
Scriptures and a It Is utterly subversive of
all the standards of orthodoxy the evangel
ical papers are asking whether the Presby
terian Church as a whole ought not t deal
with a subject 8 tremendously Important
A revoluUon so complete they think
should not b mao by a single Individual
and I single Institution on their own im
pulse only I these aro t b the doctrines
preached In tho Presbyterian churches tho
General Assembly and not merely Prof
Bniaaa and the Union Theological Born
nary ought t say whether they ehall b
approved and established
I appears that under a rule adopted by
the General Assembly In 1S70 that seminary
was put on the some footing a that of the
other seminaries of the Church and that I
a majority of the Assembly disapproves no
appointment of professor In such an Institu
tion shall ba considered as a complete elec
tion Therefore the views of Prof Biuoaa
properly should cojno up for grave consideration
sideration at the next meeting of tho
General Assembly Tho subject I likely
t drive even tho discussion ot amend
ments to the Westminster Confession
Into background Logically should b
settled before any of the proposed changes
aro made for I his views ore sustained the
whole Confession must be wiped out and
none con b constructed in Its place Its
very foundation is the doctrine that the
Scriptures are given by Inspiration from

Blblols a fallible bk partly true and part
false human reason determine

It Is not Inspired and It has no such author
Ity Reason Is I the rule and not the Bible
Wo do not see how it Is possible fo the
General Assembly t avoid this question and
esoapethe responsibility deciding whether
Prof Bmooa shall b allowed t continue s I
a professor of Biblical theology In a Presbyterian
byt divinity school But suppose It de
cides against him what will b the effect
Will the trustees of the seminary turn Prof

I I Bound to Come la
Te great Issue In Canadian politics at
the present moment concerns trade rela
tions with the United States and from this
time forth It will be a controlling issue
This means that Canada I moving rapidly
toward annexation for there Is no other
possible settlement of the question The
nominal and formal dependence of the Do
mInion is on England Its practical depen
dence 1 on trade with the United States
It whole history more especially its r
cent history shows that it cannot compete
with us I can prop ronly coming Into
the American Union and sharing in the unre
stricted trade which 0 on between the
States Capital will continue t avoid It
enterprise t leave It and population to
desert It 1 long as Canada persists In It
hopeless attempt at competition with us A
Ble State of the Union might ai well try
to get along without the rest as Canada try i
t keep up the contest Involved in Its sepa
rate existence I Is bound to come In t
join Its fortunes with us No matter how
Its present campaign results the movement
toward annexation will b quickened
A Canadian who undertakes to oppose this
resistless march think that In good time
rte8 go tme
the Dominion will take rank
wi a a great
nation He means as 1 separate and Inde
pendent nation But if that good time ha
not already come what reason is there t
expect it in the future Canada has had
a much time a this republic t grow
Into a great nation yet it is only
a Insignificant province while the
United States have become one of the
strongest richest and mot populous pow
ers In the world Relatively t us the Do
minion I of decreasing consequence a time
goes on I I more and more overshadowed
I falls further and further behind in the
of competition
race omptton
Yet Canada has overweighted Itself with
debt t keep up the unequal and hopeless
contest I his used every means t at
tract population from abroad while we
have left the stream of immigra
tion t take its own course That
course f toward us and therefore
Canadas artificial stimulation of
Cda arclastmultlon Immigra
tion has Inured t our gain more than Its
ow The majority of the foreigners merely
pass through the Dominion t come over to
us and the same selfInterest that directs
them hither Is Impelling the mot enter
prising young men of Canadian birth to fol
low them over the border They are the
forerunners annexation The forces neces
sary t make a great nation are diminishing
rather than increasing in Canada
Hence there is nothing of any Importance
in Canadian politics except the relations of
the Dominion t the United States Its
real capital Is Washington and not Ottawa
It Is dependency of the United States
I a depnenoy te Untd Htt more
than of England and looking t u and our
policy rather than to England for Its pro
parity and its development
A good time Is surely coming for Canada I
The day when a national sentiment will replace I
place Its present provincial subserviency is
approaching As part of the
approachlDI te sovereign
American people the Canadians will share
In the rapid development of the most popu

nation the world has ever known Before

WAStntrarov Fob UTh oonemrenco of
the House In the bill passed by the Senate a
month ago for the readjustment of the retired
list Is tbe most Important measure enacted by
the Fiftytint Congress for lh rational In
terests of army officers and Indeed the most
Important one for that purpose accomplished
inmanyyears
many years
I provides for the transfer ot all retired
officers who have reached may reach the
age ot C4 from the limited t the unlimited
Hit while as a partial offset the former list is
hereafter to be reduced from Its present
maximum of 400 to aO
While the avowed object ot thin measure 18 l
Immediately to Increase the aggregate number
of retired office anti I thereby to furnUli a
large number of promotion on the active Hit
thoio were considerations which recommended
It to Congress when other motboile of accom
plishing the BIO purpose hail been rejected
The original creation of a disability list hud
nothing to ilo with the question of ago Ail I
uiioud age In fait Is often not a disability lu
tliolilcheruradrs as Illustrious examples In
our own army and ntlll more In the German
ha oohown The firot retlieil list which by
the way was eated after the ontbienk of tle
civil war ivan limited to 7 per cent ottue active
list Than ennui an Increase to the fixed num
ber of S09 and finally to 4iO 0 J mpulsory re
tirement for age Is a recent mcBsuie dating
tiack only to the net ot June so 1192 Con W
T Hhoruian was one of lu first victims a
though lu his cute full ray by an exception
was retained
The expiesH object of Ihs new age law wee
to secure to juniors the promotion which other
wise amId not lie hoped for lu lime of peace
It was not pretended that an omer reaching
tho commnnd for example of a regiment or a
staff corps nt tb < Rite of li irfte unlit tor UM
duties 01 tho contrary retirement was made I
Kumtiulsory bocume an many oUlcern at the
n KB of l > 4 veto at lime height of their t < o < f
unit uaafulnes with tbe iironpevt of a con
tinuing Iflllll twelve or twenty rear more
Iongiesa lu umt let sought ID jetaln the ser
vice of experienced junior omc rs non of
whom bed to lenmin tent your fn n grade
and might be tempted by tho terchancelo
ilo oOVreil by elnl iminulis
The uresout net Is really supplementary
to the Ilw of 1882 A very largo proportion of
limo officer retired fo Uiuhlllty resulting
Horn wound or ill health have now passed the
Ego of 04 11 ml they remained on the active list
they would be retired Imply forage and for
Ibo express imrposii of Increasing the flow of
promotion The present Conortaa accordingly
takes the ground that It simply carries out the
existing policy In permitting the transfer of
such oflloer to the age llt and so ot > DID the
disability vacations Hat proper to oftlcers awaiting such I
Indeed 1 second Important consideration Is
the very large number of officer awaiting
these vacancies who have been examined by
official Boards and recommended lor retire
ment Ibis number lit excess of th rlre
Ilnt eU5 Ire
scribed limit ol the disability list baa for years
been increasing until today It reaches about
alt These otllcers are disabled an the
medical reports show yet their places onnnot
be fled and the Government mutt cr > on
giving them till active pay while being un
able to exact lu return that measure of set
vice hlh this pay cal for I losp then
for while also tlin junior officers who per
form the duties nominally Incumbent on their
disabled superiors do not receive the rank and
pay which such tasks merit
Exactly bow to escape from this double dif
ficulty was a puzzj until the present Ingenious
system was lilt upon here a now about
liOoincerson the disability Hit wboae ages
exceed 64 years There r also snout sixty
officer on the active list awaiting vacancies on
time disability Hit It Is M simple arithmetical
arihmetcal
conclusion tbat If the 110 am transferred to
the age list and the disability then reduced
to 35u as a maximum there trill bn mot about
enough vacancies on It to completely clear the
ment list of tho orueers recommended for rtre
mrmthis way tbe desired promotion will be
brought about the army will get sixty more
duty ofllcers and the reduction In Ste disabil
ity list from 4UO to 160 will orrVet the continu
ing operation of the transfers from I to the
age list under the act just passed
There Is doubtless not palled troth in the
report nf a former House Committee on till I
Itary Affairs that the retired Hit 01 the arm
is now burdened by offloere who were retired
on account of comparatively trivial disabil
ities I is also unquestionable that the bole
HyNtem of retirement though founded
rtrment foulded on consideration
sideration of public expediency at a period
when efficiency for war purposes In all grades
ha become Imperative IU110 been worked In
some Instances for personal advantage The
retired lists of the army and navy combined
aJ
have already coat perhao i34ooOouo or 33
000000 and legislation to mores > tbelr an
nual cost should bn sharply scrutinized But
u ha been seen the particular measure now
passed ba certain special argument t its
favor and eon only b used at prvmept for the
retirement of officer already actually found
ftrment atUJ
Incapacitated for active lervlc
Taking together this important meatttr and
the act recently passed for the retirement of
oilloere In certain grades next In the line of
promotion I found disabled on examination I
great prospects of advancement la rank and
pay are opened A farther result must b the
creation of a larger number or vacancies
among the Second Lleutenanta of the line than
lne
the class graduating next June at West Point
sod tbe recommended concnrnmlssloned offi

To HeTlve American SJalpil > a
To THE EDITOR OF TH Bus Sir The
reciprocity arrangement recently entered Into
with Brazil and those pending with
BrEI thOe Jndlnl other South
American countries have called special atten
tion to the Tonnage and Shipping bill now
waiting for consideration In tbe House The
Chambers of Commerce and other commercial
bodies of the Atlantic and Pacific seaboard
cities are sending here most urgent appeals
favoring Its speedy passage en the general
ground that it Is necessary for the encourage
ment of American commerce and that without
it the carrying trade which should necessarily
grow up with reciprocity u pay tribute and
bring wealth to foreign Instead
wealb forla of American
shipowners The conviction seem t be grow
ing that the time has come to rebuild
Inl tm hfs our mer
chant marine and that thl will be Impossible
gainst the European subsidised lines which
Lava monopolized our trade unless our ow
shipping Is put upon an equal footing with
them by a system of bounties nnd allowances
based upon tonnage carried and norvloe ren
dered The principal opposition to the meas
ure comes from tbe rural and agri
cultural districts of tbe cotton Elates on
the old and exploded theory that
j they lat no interest in maritime
or eternal affairs but the leading anti more
thoughtful men who aro building up the new
South are anakonlng to a realizing con of
the fact that the situation lu respect to this
Important matter has chanced nnd that neith
er the ucrlctiUuia nor the still more import
ant mineral resources 01 that region cnn be 1
properly developed without additional facili
ties for reaching tho msrkeu of the world
They are also beginning to perceive hat I inch
seaports as New Orleans Xloblo ron ncoe
Savannah Port Itoyal CnurJuston sIll Nor
folk urn quite u much concerned In the
measure as are Philadelphia New York and
Boston and tbat they would all receive ti great
Impulse from be establishment of American
lines connecting them with foreign ports
Tb old prejudices against subsidies are cer
tainly on tbe wane and It nor surprise no
one If this Congress should ignore I polities ant
signalize II closing day liy the passage of a
measure which must be followed at an early
day by tie reappearance of our R upon all
the maritime trade route of the world
