This Is tho call which summons to tho old Democratic flag ovory Domocrat. This Is the essontlat part of tho platform on which O110vr.1t Ci,otki,and was nom inated at Chicago yesterday morning, fairly, Bqunrely, nnd honorably, and by tho voUs of moro thnn two-thirds of tho Domocrntlo delegates. David Dennett Hill. Governor Ifiiiti has been squaroly nnd fairly lieaton at Chicago, and squarely and fairly ho has borno himself In tho contest from beginning to end. To his cuomles, malignant und slanderous as thoy are. ho needs to moko no nn Bwor except tho scorn nnd dcllanco which llnd tholr expression In sllcnco. To his friends ho Is endeared by tho qualities which they know so well, and tho manli ness, truth, steadiness, firmness, and faith fulness which thoy nppreclnto so truly. To tho Democracy of Now York It Is a matter of Importanco that Governor HltTj should contlnuo at tho head of tho urmy ho has dono so much to organ 1 7.0 nnd discipline, and has led to victories so momentous nnd fruitful. A genius In politics, ho novcr rotrunts beforo a foo and nover deceives a friend. Tho Now York Democrats nro with him.

The Knblo of the Fool at Phlllppl. On tho evening preoodlng tho second and dccjslvo battle of Phlllppl, tho outposts of tho legion of Octavius brought to tho headquarters of that Roman General a frantic nnd fronzlod fugltlvo from tho eno my's lines. On nccount of his great talka tiveness ho was supposed to bo nn Important enpturo nnd nblo to glvo Information about tho condition ot things on tho other side. Investigation, howovor, showed that ho was moroly a demented nnd ill-starred per son, knowing nothing. Tho Roman com mander, amused at his subaltoiu's mistake, said : " Fool, beforo you nro freed, tell mo how may I win to-morrow's battle." Tho fool lost no timo In roplying. "In tho first place," ho said. " you must Bond back all your trained soldiers to Rome. Thon you must strip from off tho breasts of your vetornnB tholr Insignia gained by loy alty and daring. You must roduco your beBt Gcnornls to tho ranks. You must abandon your protected positions, and re trofit to less dcslrnblo onos. Thon you must. In tho places ot thoso soldiers whoso services you havo dispensed with, sccuro as substitutes such deserters from tho onoiny as you can find, and. Intrusting tho light to new hands, you shall win a victory un exampled in tho annals of Romo!" Tho advico of tho fool was not takon, and a splendid victory rewarded tho arms of Octavius. In tho carnago which followed tho fight tho fool escaped. Let tho Hon. William Comns WniTJfEX keep his eyes peeled I Retaliate on the Canadian Tories. Wo havo only sympathy and good will for tho Canadian Liberals, but tho timo has como to put tho screws to tho Tory Govern ment at Ottawa. Tho papers laid bofore' tho Senate by Fresldont Haiuusox not only oxposo tho fraudulent character ot tho over tures for reciprocity madolast winter; thoy also show that tho Dominion Ministers wore all tho timo determined to lnjuro Amorlcan commerco to tho utmost of their power by severely discriminating against Americans In tho matter of tolls on tho Wolland Canal. As an Inducement to tho United States to enter into negotiations In tended to lnfluenco by-elections then pend ing In Canada, tho throo Canadian Commis sioners, who woro all members of tho Dominion Cablnot, promised that tho dis crimination just mentioned should bo re moved. Thoy had no powor, thoy said, to mako a formal agreomont on tho subject, but had no doubt that tholr promlso would bo ratified by their colleagues In tho Min istry. Scarcely, howovor, had they returned to Ottawa than, having gained their pur poso of carrying tho by-cloctlons for tholr party, thoy proceeded to roafllrm tho dis crimination for another year, subjecting all grain passing to Amorlcan ports through tho Wolland Canal to a toll of twenty eonts per ton. whllo grain shipped to Montreal or other Canadian poits has tho benollt of n robato of elghtoon conts, thus paying only two cents per ton. It Is manifest thnt this discrimination against American citizens by meuns of a rebate is a violation of our treaty rights. Thero Is no mistake about tho purport of tho treaty of 1971. Its aim is dollncd to bo to "securo to tho cltlznus of tho United States tho uso of tho Welland, St. Lawrence, and other canals In tho Dominion, on terras of oqunllty with tho Inhabitants of tho Do minion." It is proosterous to say that tho purposo of tho treaty Is not sot at naught by tho robato In question. It Is to ndd In sult to Injury to contend, as the Dominion Government does, that thcto Is no dis crimination botwoon Canadian and Ameri can vcssols, bocauso tho robato Is al lowed to tho lattor It thoy soo lit to carry grain through to Montreal. Tho treaty gives Canada no right to eocri llco American ports and all tho transshipping and transportation Interests that may bo centred therein. It was not concluded for tho bonollt of American producers nlono; It was also lntond'ed to glvo to consuninrs In tho United States, and to Americans on giigod In railroad transportation aud In tho oxport of products from our ports, equal terms In passing their morchandlso through tho Canadian canals. Tho equality of treat ment guaranteed by tho tronty of 1871 was absolute, not partial: othorwlso. It would huvo formod no consideration for tho roolp- rocal concessions mado 011 behalf of tho Washington Govornmmitln thosamotreuty, ami which have been faithfully kept. In this matter of tho robato on tho Wol land Canal, tho Tory Government of Ot tawa lias not only been guilty of duplicity nntl treachery, but by nullifying our treaty right it has rendered voldablo at our option nil tho privileges secured to Cnnn dliiim by the samo liibtruiiiont. One of thcho concessions vns tho light of froo passago through tho St. Mary's Falls Canal, and wo nro glad to gen thnt Senator Davis httRiilrradylntrodiicciUblllnutlioilzlngtho President to siihpcnd this right so far ns It relates to vessels own -d by tho subjects of tho Ottawa Govon. -nt, nnd to levy upon f 1 eight carried by . vessels tolls not ox ceodliig two tlollnrx per ton, nntl also tolls upon pa3sengors i.ut oxecodlug tlvo dollars each. It Is, however, provided thnt such tolls shall bo romlttod in tho case of freight or possengors carried by Canadian vessols toOgdensbuig aud lauded thoro, or at any American port west of thnt plnco. This proviso having bcou inserted, thero Is no possiblo objection to tho bill, aud tho sooner It Is passed tho better. But nro wo to content oursolvcs with re taliatory tolls on St. Mary's Fulls Canal ? 1 Bholl ttc continue to allow privileges to tho Canadian rnclfl and Grand Trunk Rail ways, privileges which subject our own railways to disastrous competition? Wo aro often told thnt In this matter of con cessions to tho Grand Trunk nnd Canadian Paclllo tho local Intorcsts of cortaln States of Malno and Minnesota, for oxnmplo con flict with thoso of tho country ns a wholo. So much tho worso for tho local Interests. They should not bo consldorod for n mo ment whon tho dignity nnd wclfaro of tho nation aro In question. Wo doubt whothor tho representatives of thoso local lntorosU will dnro to publicly avow thnt thoy profit by a situation discreditable nnd hurtful to tho community at largo. Tho proposed Imposition of tolls on Cana dian vessels using St. Mary's Falls Canal Is n move In tho right dlroctlon. Hut It docs not go far onough. It Is not nn adoquato ro jolndor to tho discrimination mado against American vessols In tho Wolland Canal. It Is not by that kind of retaliation that tho Ottawa Government can bo mado to winco, If wo want to cut off Its flnatclal resources, v c must put an trnl to the privilege enjoyed by the Grand Trunk and Canadian ltcflc liailtcayn. That Is tho blow, and tho only blow, that will bring tho Canadian Tories to their knees. The Greatest Effort of BlassacUugetU. For tho truo humor of liquor legislation wo always look to Massachusetts. Malno does well In that direction, but Malno Is too severely logical to bo regarded ns a humorist. Uudor tho constant nag ging kept up by that illustrious old olnophoblst. Gon. Neai, Dow, Malno sol ders statutes with amondmonts, and do vlses new pains nnd penalties against tho uttorors of rum; but all this despotism of legislation is corrected by tho open, booming bnrrooms of Rangor nnd Blddc ford nnd Lowlstan. It may be said that In this Incongruity botwecn tho purposo nnd effect of tho Maluo prohibition legislation, thoro Is tho baslo eloniont of humor; but to say so Is to forgot that according to most definitions surprlso Is an element of humor. Now, obviously, If tho Malno liquor lnws woro enforced, thero would bo a surprlso of tho largost dinmotcr, nnd, consequently, a rich hnrvest of humor. But no such surprlso has ovor yot been found. Intrinsically, and on tho faco of tho statuto book, tho liquor laws of Malno nro not ridiculous. Thoy nro founded upon principles which most persons cannot ac cept; but tho gradations nnd progressions ot tholr delusion aro sufllclontly rcgulnr. Far othorwlso Is It with tho attempts at liquor legislation mado by tho Groat and Gonoral Court of Massachusetts. Malno Is a prohibition Stato which seeks, howovor vainly, to prohibit tho snlo of strong waters. Massachusetts Is a local option Stato, which devotes much thought and study to dovlslng moans of an noying persons who are unfortunate enough to havo a license for carry ing on tho liquor business. It Is not so much horror of tho liquor business that In spires tho Massachusetts legislators as It Is tho lnnato and immitigable deslro, present over lu tho Massachusetts bosom, to Inter fere, with somebody olso's business. If thoro woro no juico of tho grnpa and tho still, tho Massachusetts Gonoral Court would probably seek to regulate by statuto tljo number and quality of tho meals which a citizen should havo In a day. Tho ofllcaoy ot legislation and tho noed for a good deal ot It aro firm tonots of tho Massachusetts Legislative Mind; and Denth and tho East Wind aro perhaps tho only objocts which It dooms deaf to statutes. Wo believe that thoro Is as yot no posltlvo consti tutional prohibition of thirst in tho Stato; but various humorous attempts at restriction of tho nssuagomont of thirst havo been mado. Thus It Is still Illegal In Massachusetts, wo think, to havo a thirst after 11 P. M., an hour re garded by tho uatlvos ot Toad Hill and Fatnuck as of unparalleled Intempestlvlty. A Ilttlo whllo ago tho Massachusetts Legislature tried to make drinking odious by compelling tho drinker to sit down nnd inako himself nt homo, a kind of regulation which ono can lmnglno Master FnANfois RAnnLAis lnylpg down for tho Abboy of Theiunicr. As soon ns tho legislators found that this law was welcomed by per sons with a gift for sorious Imbibition, it was repealed. Tho mero fact that It was InolTectual, idiotic, and unduly restrictive of tho habits of tho citizen, was nothing. Thoro is' a Law aud Order Society which exists largely for tho purposo of say ing how many times a Massachusetts mnn may get drunk In n yoar; nnd by Its efforts a statute lor thnt purposo was passed, and is still in tho bright bloom of Its freshness: nnd thoro nro olllelals called probation ofllcors, wo bo llovo, whoso duty It is to examine tho roc ords nnd noses of tho gontloraon cullod for tho cooler, and to glvo thom a rocommondn tlon or n dlsrocommondatlon boforo tho Pollco Judgo. Of courso, a cortaln amount of injustice is dono undor thoso provisions. A rounder or revolving light, for Instance may bo brought up on sovon successlvo days ns n soparato "drunk;" whllo on his own Intention and on strict logal mathe matics that week Is only a part of ono undi vided alid lndlvlslblo whole. Tho Massachusetts Loglslaturo which camo to an unrogrottod end Inst wook, passed what is ono of tho most humorous liquor bills on rocord. This was " an net to promote temporanoo by tho suppression of tho liquor saloon and tho tippling shop;" nnd it proposes to promote nnd suppress in tho following inannor: It " prohibits tho keeping nnd sale of liquor to bo drunk on tho promises, in any room, building, or place whoro tho sale of liquor Is tho oxcluslvoor principal business carried on." In othor words, u man who wnnts to boII liquor un der tho provisions of this bill would havo to koop n taxidormtst's sho p, or a ba rbor's shop, or nboanory.ora Culture Talk Exchange, or a Tolstoi Club, or an undertaking establish ment, or a IIamiisox campnlgu badgo man ufactory, or Bomo othor comrnorclnl or liter ary or manufacturing onterpriso, In which buying or selling or talking for literary or philanthropic purposes should bo his voca tion and wloldlng the spigot his avocation. Ills liquor selling would havo to bo inci dental. This, It scorns to us, Is about tho funniest product of tho Massachusetts genius. A liquor store Booms to bo tho nat ural plnco for hooping und soiling liquor; nt least It 6ooms bo to tho iiiiregonernte mind. If tho pilnelples of this bill should prevail, nntl bo applied to business goner ally, it might boeonio unlawful lu Manna chusotts to koop eggs oxeopt lu a hardwaro Btoro, or to expose gingerbread save In a drug shop, Thosnluof newspapers might bo mado Incidental ton laundry, nnd soap bo prohibited oxeopt In strict connection with plo baking. Onco odtabllsh tho position takon so raitgnlllcoiitly by tho legislative mind of Massachusetts that a liquor storo Is a plnco where liquor shull not bo sold, ex cept Incidentally nnd as a fcldo show, and what vast changes must ensue in tho touts ot business and tho definitions ot the 1 dktlouarica. Tho trades would bo turned topsyturvy- And why not? Why do tho Massachusetts legislators havo any moro call or right to 6ay that tho koopor ot n liquor storo shall not soil liq uor as his exclusive or main business, thnn to say that a lawyer shall not practlso law as his mnln or oxcluslvo busi ness, or that a bankor shall mnko playing upon tho cornot his chlof occupation, aud shall bank only by tho way ? Thoro nro no limits to tho sweep which tho Massachusetts gonitis might mnko In tho dlroctlon of hampering tho frco activity of ite citizens; nnd wo almost regrot that Governor Russell's veto, sustained by tho Senate although benton lu tho IIouso, has proventod this won dorful cssny nt suppressing and pro moting from becoming a law. Tho Dem ocrats In tho House, though of courso op posed to tho bill, hold off from voting to ovorrulo tho voto, dooming, not without a cortaln humorous appreciation with which wo sympathize, that It was nono of their business to postpono a Republican funoral, Tho Democrats In tho Sonnte took a loss humorous view, and so with tho help of a fow Republicans who nro a Ilttlo rusty In their paternalism, tho bill failed. If tho Re publicans who voted for It could find somo manager who would tako thorn around tho country, and exhibit thom. ho and thoy would mako money. Why cou't thoy bo brought to the Polo grounds ? Hundreds ot thousands of our pooplo would flock to soo thoso cholco Bpcclmons of tho Massachu setts loglslatlvo mind. Tho Cloveland Protectionists. For historical purposes wo now plnco sldo by sldo tho Republican declaration of 1891 concerning tho tariff nnd tho resolution re ported at Chicago by tho Platform Com nilttco: RtrvBttCAie. DCXOCRITIG. "We believe that allar- "When Custom House tlcleawhlcn cannot he pro- taxation Is levied upon nr- ..,..,.. tides of any kind produced ducad In the lulled State,, ,n ,,,,, ,. except luxuries, should be enco between the cost ot admitted freo ot duty, and labor here and abroad, .1. ...... 11 .-.-,.... i.Jwhen such dUIerenco that on all Imports coming , . . ,, exists, fully measures any into competition with the poMlw, Delntl t0 labor. products of American la- In making reducttone In bor there should be duties taxes It Is not proposed tn levied equal to the dlfler-jlnjure any domestic Indus ence between wages at itrias, but rather to promote home and abroad." Ithalr healthy gtowth." Tho Republican plank and tho proposed Domocratlo plunk. It will bo observed, amount to about tho same thing. Tho prln ciplo of protection Is recognized nnd nlilrmed lu both. For tho Democratic resolution recognizing nnd affirming protection, tho Convention substituted another resolution denouncing " Republican protection " as n fraud and n robbery, and declaring that tho Fodorul Govornmont has no Constitutional powor to enforce and col lect tariff duties " except for thu purposo of revenuo only." jNOVorineioBS. ooz memocrs 01 mo t-onven-tlon voted for tho tariff plank as originally presented by tho Commltteoon Resolutions, with tho approval ot Mr. Cleveland's man agers, and.
