upon n different and less vital question.
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
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

nover deceives a friend. Tho Now York

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.

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
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.

For historical purposes wo now plnco sldo

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. It Is said, with tho approval of
Mr. Cleveland himself. Tho proposition to
substitute for tho resolution looking toward
protection a resolution denouncing protec
tion, nnd declaring for nrevonuo tariff only,
wns resisted by tho solid voto of Arkansas,
California. Connecticut. Kansas. Minnesota,
New Jorsoy, Pennsylvania, Rhodo Island,
Vermont, and Wisconsin. Tho solid vote of
every ono ot thoso States was afterward
cast for Mr. Cleveland's nomination.
Will anybody but a freo trade Mugwump
protend that tho Democrats of New Jorsoy

In tho Empire State thoro is not a more

In tho future Cleveland Administration

forty miles from Uloversvllle. on a beautiful
little lnko just across tho tableland nt I'Isoco
Lake. In Hamilton county. Tho lake Is not
In rue. In no place being more thnn a mile wide,
whllo It measures fro.n two to throo miles
long. Tim day was all that n flshorman could
desire, and every condition was right for good
Hailing. A party of throo wero In the boat,
namely. I- E. Everest, his frlond. Prof. Spen
cer from I! rooklyn. and the writer. They had
driven up from Unrogn. and wore more than
delighted with their luok. Thny hnd takon
nearly fifty pickerel in loss than half adny.and
tho size was good, welching from two and ono
hnlf to six pounds. The last turn uround tho
"lucky point" wns being mado boforo wo
started for homo. Everest, who was trolling
ono of tho lines, snid:
" I've got another: ho's a good, big one. from
the way he pulls."
Kvorest lot him play at one time nenrly 200
foot of lino beforo tho fish could bo turned.
Whon ho had been brought Into sight ho wns
not ns large as somo wo had already In tho
boat, but there was nn unusual motion all
about him. Soon tho lino was drawn so tightly It
Was necessary to let him play again. When
brought back It was discovered that a larger
pickerel had attempted to swallow tho ono on
tho hook, which wn now nulto exhausted.
Tho big fellow still followed, shark-like, tha
dead body of his victim, which, however. w
wero not dlspo-od to glvo up. .lustns Kverost
wan about to swing t ho llsh on his hook Into tho
bout the Professor took up tho oar, hoping to
strike nnd thus enpturo the large ono. Tho
movomentof tbo onr nttrnetod tho attention
of the llsh. and in a twinklo lie mado n pnss at
It. U'ho blndo wns nbout sovon inches wido,
but his laws grnted across tho upper nnd
lower edge, snwlng a groove In oithor sldo
with his shnrp teeth. Tho l'rofossor. by enrry
Inir tho onr forward with tho movement of tho
llsh, at the snmo timo raising It from tho
water, lnndod tho hugo follow Into tlm boat.
Ho welchod l.'!1, pounds. Tho fish on
tho hook only weighed throo pounds, but
showod signs of battle, being bitten In sovoral
places. I pon opening him wo found, ns is
often tho ease, n llsh nf smaller sire In his
stomach. This one showed signs of life nnd
was opened. Wo then discovered a pretty little
gold chatelalno watch, nnd worn surprised
that tho time ncrood with our watches and
that It was running.
Moro than pleased with our fishing expedi
tion, wo returned to tho hotel and informed
Landlord McCoy of our luek. at the siunn timo
showing the watch. In less than two minutes
all tho guests aliout tho house wero In ths
ofllce. nnd nmong tho number n pretty younir
lady from Albany, who said tho watch wns a
token of friendship which sho hnd prlred very
highly. When on tho Inko in tho enrljr pnrt of
the ilny It had fallen Into tho water, and sho
suppohod was loot. It is noodloss tosuy slid
was overjoyed at its recovery.
