The Vatican and French Politics
Thero have been of late several Indica

the Catholic Church toward the French re
I public I tho change now foreshadowed

te first time within the ranks of Republicans
cans themselves a noticeable drift toward
Conservative opinions
After tho collapse of Boulanglsm and es

ciple in an odious and even a ridiculous light

ba ten wrong cours But no mater

I Impatience nnddlsgust they would probably

gramme ot tho Bight had they not sudden
Iy received unexpected assistance from a
J distinguished member of tho French
It Cardinal LAVWEUIE
hierarchy was Cardina LAVGElm
who In a speech which commanded
the widest attention declared that the
time had come for French Catholics
l t abandon the posture of hostility
t t democraticInstitutions The republic
ho aid had como to stay and it was the
duty of all Frenchmen whether actuated by
teal l for their religion or by devotion to their
country t make the beet of the actual polit
ical regime He advised the members of
f the Bight and the great body of Catholic
I constituents behind them to renounce tho
j bopelosa effort to restore the monarchy and
r t concentrate their energies upon a fusion
I with the moderate Republicans of the Centra
f and Left Centre and the
Cntro consequent crea
J tion of a new party which should b at once
conservative and constitutional
I anratve ad cnsttutonal
t This declaration fell like a thunderclap on
1 the more hidebound and uncompromis
f ing leader of the monarchists for they
were perfectly alive t the fact that
without the cordial support of tho
Catholic episcopate and priesthood they
k would b in the position of Generals
without an army They determined t ap
t peal from the Cardinal t tho Pope him
ji self and they persuaded another eminent
fJ I French prelate Mgr FBZPPE t accom
pany the Duo DX LA ROCHEFOUCAULD to
Borne I Is no secret that their mission t
the Vatican was unsuccessful To their dis
may LEO XIII not only ratified but empha
Iced the view of the duty of French Catho
lics against which they had como t pr
teat In vain did they endeavor t
i demonstrate that the republic in the bonds
of its present managers was still a perse
cutor of the Church and had even by the
luppreon of BAKDOUS Thermldor pro
claimed Its approval of the most hideous
atrocities of the Bell of Terror The I
pontiff made them distinctly understand
that it was for him t give and not receive

masses of the faithful t burr In Irreconcilable

Of course the dissolving process t
the monarchical party now seems certain t

ters some obstruction and delay Especially
may such recalcitrance b looked tor from I

PHILIPPE One of these U DHAUSSOX
VILLF declared the other day at Ntmes that
not tho Pop himself had any right to i
order a Catholic to become a Republican
Issued such orders
Tho Pop has l8uO no orer
He has merely admonished French Catholics
and plotting
olics to stop Intriguing plottni
against a form of government repeatedly
and definitely sanctioned by a great major
ty of Frenchmen Ho ha at tho same time
pointed out that It I by using tho oppor
tunities and Instruments afforded under I
republican reelme and not by remaining
implacably aloof from them that Catholic
may hope to gain such reasonable conces
sions a freedom t educate their children
t nurse their sick to keep their clergy out
of tho contaminating atmosphere of a bar
rack and t maintain the existing bond between
tween Church and State
The Time to Fraternize
Tho refusal of combatants t lay down
their arms oven aftor tho battle Is over is
always an Interesting thought generally an
innccossary proof of the ardor and enthu
siasm of those who have shared the dangers
ot the conflict
At a meeting of tho New York Democracy
organization hold on Friday evening last
Judge HHXRT MUBBAY one of the delegates
In attendance declared I I have nailed my
colors to the mast and will stick t this ship
while there is a timber afloat These val
ant and courageous words have tho right
ring coming from a Democrat whoso ser
vices In tho past have been notable and
whitte ability to render further services may
be accounted to amount t much They
were uttered In regard to a proposition that
the organization or which he Is a member
should hold primaries this week Judge
MUBRAT was strongly In favor of holding
the primaries
At 0 meeting of the County Democracy
tho parent organization from which In the
sunshine of hope the New York Democracy
has i sprung the lon CHARLES A JACKSON
its Chairman recently declared I Parties
but It there bo other
imy come or go I ther b no
man left I will remain and It need b
will as tho last survivor of the County
Democracy turn down the gas and lock up
the promises
Thoro is no mistaking the fervor Inspiring
these heroic words but how far Is justllled
b jy the situation of affairs 1
At this years election fur the first time In
many years there Is no municipal ticket
to bo voted for Whatever rivalries among
Democrats might at other times exist there
Is no occasion for any this year The suc I
cessors of those in charge ol munlcloal af II
fairs ore not to l elected until 1892 or 1893
Next year a Mayor Register and President
of tho Board ot Aldermen will b chosen In
1B91 a Comptroller District Attorney Sur
rogate SliorlfT and County Clerk
On the other hand State election of much
moro than ordinary importance I t take
place this year A Governor is t b chosen
who will hold office until 1395 and along
with him a full set of State officers
anti both branches of the Legislature
are to 0 elected Lat year the Demo
crats secured the Assembly this year
the chance presents Itself ot securing the
State Senate also That achieved and the
Assembly retained we can look forward
with confidence and composure to a new ap
portionment of the districts the restoration
of the right of home rule t municipalities
and other political reforms t which the
Democratic party In this State U committed
but of which the people have been deprived
on account of a Republican majority In one
or the other branch of the Legislature More
than this the result of tho contest for Gov
ernor in this State will have an Important
fai reaching and probably decisive Influence
upon the Presidential election In the year
following
Accordingly it would b the part of wis
dom for the Democrats of New York t get
together on State Issues Instead of perpet
uating factional divisions which can have no
place In the approaching contest It must b
evident t ever ono that a Democratic Gov
ernor is not t b elected this year with the
party divided in New York city and only
one or the other branch of it lending to the
partys candidate a vigorous support
It may not b too much t hope there
fore that Judge MURRAY will haul down his
ensign and Chairman JACKSON permit the
gas to b turned off at the motor while the
cause of true Democracy flourishes and the
goose hangs high
Alliance Philosophy Woman Suffrage
I Is ono of tho Interesting curiosities of
Kansas politics that the Farmers Alliance
which 1 supposed to owe s much to the
women for Its control of the Legislature
should have furnished the most resolute
opposition t the bill for female suf
frage through a member of no less politi
cal consequence than the man selected
as Speaker of the lower House By way
of alvlni a clearer exhibition ot this notice
able fact and a fairer show to the Kansas
men now threatened with such an engulf I
ing revolution of the States suffrage we
reproduce some of tho arguments which
Speaker ELDER formulated against the bill
with suoh unreserved boldness

The Direct Tax Dili
The Senate Direct Tax bill which ban been
passed In a slightly amended form by the
House seems t b based upon the theory
that I A and B are subject to a tl and A
pays but I doesnt A Is entitled t have his
money refunded to him Tho act of Aug
6 led imposed A ta for tile purpote of
raising money for tho prowcutlou of the
war The majority of tho States paid Tho
ten States which led paid from
two t fifty per pent The DIrect 11 bill
the entire
to scatter lBM7fl30
proposes lotcr GJ entr
sum ml ed under the act of Aug 5 1861
The
among titti States and Territories
money Is to b held In trust by the Gov
erlUlS and the Commissioners ot the Dis
trict of Columbia for the benollt of the per
eons who paid the tax Claim must b
filed within six year after the passage of
the bill I ant money escapes the claimants
It Is t go to the State Territory or Die
tilct Probably mot of the claims are In
the hands of speculators
About tho only argument advanced by the
supporters of the bill Is 1 that all tho States
should pay or none Either the States In ar
rears must pay or tho States which paid
must get their money tack It Is an extra
ordinary argument The arguments against
the bill are unanswerable It Is extrava
gant unnecessary unconstitutional I puto
the FederoJ Government Into the position ot
a generous and an eccentric guardian who
pays back the sums he has received for the
maintenance of one ward bell the estate
ot another ward hasnt paid up But the
whole subject was made sufficiently familiar
during the famous filibustering of the Hon
WILLIAM C OAT to the Fiftieth Congress
Mr CLEVELANDS veto of the Direct Tax
bill in 18S9 a one of his few meritorious
performances Unfortunately he had signed
the Oleomargarine bill and the Mexican
Pension bill and talk from him In regard t
unconstitutionally and extravagance was
very cheap
The State of New York drawa 3319830
under the terms of the Direct Tax bill It Is
a big bribe but it dos not prevent the New
York Democrats from calling that bill Just
what i is n swindle and a fraud Probably
the Senate will hasten to accept the unim
House amendments and send the
portant Hous amendment ad and te
bill t to the President who will rejoice t sin
It It gives Indiana a handsome sum
None the leas It Is a bill which should never
have been passed
A Law that Needs Explanation
The State Senate has Just passed a bill In
troduced by Mr AHEAJLV entitled an act for
the better protection of life and limb of
mechanics and laborers In cities having a
of five hundred thousand
population over fve hundr toud
The bill which ot course applies only t New
York and Brooklyn Is in these words

I this measure becomes a law the que
tion Is certain t arise as t whether the
scaffold or staging t b provided with
a safety railing thirtyfour inches high includes
eludes boards suoh as are ordinarily em
ployed by house painters which they
raise and lower at will by means of ropes I
and pulleys from the roof Those board
platforms may come within the letter of the
proposed statute and yet railings would b
of very little use upon tem th painters
do most of their work seated when the
danger of falling Is very slight
Another question suggests itself as t the
moaning ot the phrase elevated structures
of any description Scaffolding o staging
is extensively employed by men at work in
repairing ships In dock Would ships thus
placed b deemed elevated structures
within the intent and spirit of the law
Finally we should like t know why the
operation of the statute is t b confined t
New York and Brooklyn Is not the life of a
mechanic or laborer Just a valuable In Al

cited In proof of the excellence of this coating
toftteel bottoms It Ming reported that when
ebe was recently docked ale nine months
ferric her plates coated with tle lacquer
showed act a vest IKS of tress or barnacle
tbelr surface being rroooth and unbroken In
cnntraet with this experience of brr prototype
we mar put that of the Charleston on a recent
voyaxe from Tort Townsend to Honolulu
when although an 18knot ship she could
reach only about seven or lees than half ot
what should have been her sea speed for 10N
distances The result was entirely attribute1
to the vast quantity of vegetable and animal
growths which had accumulated upon her Lull
although lean limn four months before she bad
received In III dock a coating of antifouling
paint in which the combination of red lead
and white tlno was expected to prevent these
marina accretions
Tbe experience of the Baltimore on her voy
age to Sweden which was so dliappolntlnclr
o
slow told the same story In fat the enttlnt
down of calculated spsed from this came U so
enormous that some ot the naval experts ad
vie I a return to the prActice sheathing In
spits of Its drawback of extra weight And the
recent order of Secretary TIUCT which re
quires frequent dockings shows how much
expense must b expected from this cause
aloes There Is also the treatly Increased
consumption ot coal needed to produce ordi
nary speed with vessels whOM hulls are thus
clogged I accordingly I the new substance
proves effective It 1 will save rat sums of
money besides securing more efficiency This
particular contribution to the naval art comes
with special appropriateness from Japan

been famous the world over for centuries

We are not surprised by the news from
Honolulu tbat the new Queens throne Is
already endangered by the revolutionists
The intrigues against her began a soon a the
new of King KAXAKAUAS death was received
and there was some ground for the apprehen
sion that the would not b permitted t take her
place as his successor though he himself had
designated her a the heir apparent Her ad
versaries are the foreigners who do not dsulro
a native dynasty the republicans who seek t
alter tie form of government and tbe members I
of her own household who would like a change
In the succession They have all bean active I
during the past month But the most danger I
ou menace to her power at tbls time appears
In the fact that the Ministers of the late King
hare challenged her authority The deny her
right to remove them they refuse to resign at
her demand they continue to hold office
against her will Of course under the
circumstances It must b bard for Queen
LXUUOKALAM to maintain the Government or

A PEARL ICING rHOX TAUITI
A Young American Who ForMed a Lucky
Partnership With at Camnlba PotCital
from IRS San rranrtlco Dilly Rrport
A slender young man with a Jewish east ot
countenance stooped up to the Palace Hotel
register and signed himself Samuel Harris
Tahiti Hit Is an American and waa born
and reared In this city though his home is In
the Fermodus Islands in the Boclety group
110 ii only 23 years of age
Harris was educated Tn the grammar aohoole
ot Ban Francisco and on being graduated went
to work at one thing and another without
much success Finally be saved a few hun
dred dollars and went to Tahiti A variety of
misfortunes left him penniless there on one
oooaston hIs boat was capsized and on an
other be was thrown ashore and lost his good
In the surf Trading was flatly a fallur with
him and he told his friend sq This wa
nearly four and a half yean ago Presently be
eunk out of eight and the people who knew
him In Tahiti saw him no more for two year
When they saw him again be was on the high
road to prosperity
When h went away from Tahiti he took
paaaage to the Permodua Islands Most of the
natives there were cannibals at least tbey had
that reputation He settled on the Islands
which are celebrated as tie chief pearl fisher
ies ot the South Bens and made friend with
one of the principal chiefs An American ol
experience such aa that ofer Harris could not
fall to become soon a power In the Islands In
a year after he had gone to live there he has
Induced the bead chief to take him Into part
nership in the pearl fishery profit Then he
began to make his trIps regularly to Otabalta
to dispose of his pearl which be did at prices
that satisfied the chief that he bad a traaaur
for a partner
Life on the savage reefs of the Permodn
alternating with tbe almost aa savage life of
the TabltTan was pleasant enough for a
while but a year ago Harris grew weary of th
existence and sighed for a change The chief
would not consent to his departure however
and Harris ho been for twelve months trying
to Induce the old fellow to let him go But the
chief knew what a good thing was when ba bad
It Harris however determined to pay a visit
to Ban Francisco despite the chief ana at last
excannibal consented to let the partner
ship continue even if Harris should remain
away alx month
In the meantime the chief fame has been
wanlnir and Harris Is known all through the
Huuth Keas aa the Pearl King and most ot the
trader there think lie la the chief of the Isl
ands ac the real chief has the astuteness to
ftay In the background and let Harris conduct
his buBlnesH for him When Harris left the
Island to take ablp for San Francisco be was
attended part of the way by quite an escort ot
boats
Mr Harrla Intends to spend some of his time
bare and tban go East for a while Ha landed
on the island practically penniless ant now
by means of not neelectlni his own business
