President Ct,wrT,in hss returned th Bt.Awn Helsvnlora: bill to the Hour of Representatlvea without hi approval. HI objections to tha bill, a presented In hi nrieesg eoompnylog It return, ar, flrat, that It I faulty and mblguotis In It eonatruotlon, leaving In doubt several Im portant point that out ht to be clear, and, secondly, that It effect would be to add to the atraln upon th Treaaurr fold reserve, already perllouely great, a further train without providing for additional gold to meat It. Th absurd outcry of eome of ar Ill-informed New York merchants and banker that th bill. If It beeam a tew, would violate public faith and coin a sslgnlorage which doea not Slat, he take no pain to contro vert Ha declare, dlatlnctly. that "th Government ha purchased and now haa on hand sufficient stiver bullion to permit the coinage of all th silver dollar neoes eary to rdem, In such dollars, the Treas ury notes laauad for the purchase of said liver bullion, and enough besides to coin. a gain or elgnlorage, 65,150.681 additional Standard dollar." After srlvlng hi reaeon for not approving th bill, the President goee on to point out th need which already exlat ot strength ening the Treasury gold reserve, and rec ommends th granting to the Secretary of the Treasury of a better power than he now ha to Issue bonds for the purpose. He adds that If this were don the bullion seigniorage now In the Treasury might be coined eafely and with advantage. Altogether, the message will meet with the approval of conservative financiers in thla section ot the country, though it is not likely that It will satisfy the advocate of tree silver coinage and other currency in oUUonlsts here or elsewhere. Hasted by Protectionists. The wool dealers and commission mer chants of Boston have sent a memorial to Congress against th wool schedules of the Wilson bill. They are protectionists, and believe, therefore. In the culminating atroci ty of clues legislation, but their memorial la a plea for uniform legislation on the sub ject ot wool. It asks that the wool pro ducers be protected as well as th wool manufacturers. "The Interest are mu tual." aay the memorial, "of the wool (rower of America, the manufacturer who man ufactu res the staple, and all who handle wool in any of It stages or In any capaci ty ; and they are natural allies." The me morial not only protests against the special Instance of Inequality and want of uniform ity In the treatment of wool and Its manu factures, but It expresses of th whole Wr oif bill an opinion which Is, It anything, too conservative : "Fmrthsrmore. wa pretest sgslotttht bill la 1U sn v air. si a assasnrs framed apparently with little areeueal knowudfi of to aeeda ( the vsrlsos mBs- faclurlof IlliniU ss related to 11; 'rsw m Atari alt' so soiled.

It is a biting commentary upon the work of the Jell y-Uvered statesman at Washington that even the partisans ot th culminating atrocity And that work rotten with favorit ism and Inequality, and imDolent for rev nue. Unjustar than protection, more unequal than the old inequality, and use leaa a a provider ot revenue, it la a false measure considered from any honest point f view. The oowarda and th liar must feel that the protectionlata have ex posed them. That th friend ot th old yatem of atrocity should deaorlbe, and be Justified in describing, the new makeahlf t a "Inimical to the public morala ot the coun try" most make every constitutional tariff man bang hi head. Auctions In Graveyards. Under a statute passed in 1888. the seller of a monument or gravestone whloh is placed in any oemetery In thla State, haa a Ilea upon such monument or gravestone for so much of th purchase price as may remain unpaid ; and he la authorized to en force th lien by removing the monument r gravestone from the oemetery, and causing It to be sold at publlo auction. No such law ought ever to have been en acted. Persons sngaged In tha gravestone Industry require no peculiar protection. Thar would bejuat as much sense in giv ing a lien to the dealer who sells a boat, or carriage, or a washtub. A monument taker la under no obligation which con strains him to sell his goods on oredlt; and If he choose to trust his customers, he should take the consequences without being allowed to Invade oemstertes in order to art away hla work. But the Legislature has Just been asked to make the law even worse than it Is now. A proposed amendment will permit large monuments to be sold for debt by publlo Auction In the oemetery Itself I Such would be the effect ot the sosobmsot t a bill which haa been brought forward In the Legislature at Albany by Mr.ATjausTtts B. Qbat of the Second Assembly district of Dutches county. Not only should this bill to allow auc tions In graveyards bs summarily rejected, hut the law which it Is designed to amend should also be repealed. The Bill fosters (treat BUI. A bill entitled " An act to regulate bill ostlng and bill distributing" haa been in troduced In the Legislature by Mr. Jambs M. . O'Ubaui. member of Assembly from Monro county. It Is a vicious measure, fit only to be defeated. Its main purpose is to make bill poating .licensed business under the supervision ot the Secretary of State. The license fees payable to that officer are to be regulated aosording to the ante of the town or city in which the bill poster carries on his oc cupation, lu a place having a population of lew than 10. WO. the chaige for a license will ta five dollars. From that amount lite charge run up In this way : raantaiiK. lower toooiotio. b,.. lo.uuo to Btouo sio rtu ooo to too ooo B1 BU.OOO la KOOO 16 OOU.UUO to hou.uuo too aa.euOMiut.ouo USUU.UUUtul.uUU.UUO Ho. oMuiuus t auu u uw i.uuixu. assh license is to expire on the first ot J aaaa y of each year, and la not to be capable of UaBsfar to as jr other toil poster; I and a-vwir anfjUrsuit reset fnmlsh to th Secretary of Stat security for th faithful performance of hi hill-poetlng duties. In the form of a bond of $1,000, with at least two sureties. After a bill poster obtain bis license under this ridiculous measure he 1 to pro vide himself snd each of his agents with suitable badge, on which the word "Ktate License Advertiser" shell be stamped or engraved; and this badge the poster must wear in a conspicu ous place " while engaged In the act of poating, tacking, painting, writing, en graving, or distributing any bills, card, signs, pamphlet, circulars, or advertise ments of any kind In any town, village, or city in this Stat." Now. If thla bill stopped with the folly of making bill posters pay a license fee to the State for the privilege of wearing a statuto ry badge, it would bs merely absurd, but not affirmatively harmful. It goes much further, however. It contain a broad and sweeping prohibition against ths posting of bills, or ths circulation of advertisements among pedestrians, by any persons othsr than licensees under the set. or their sgents or emnlovee: and a violation of this pro hibition or of any other provialon of th statute 1 made punishable a a misdemean or, by fine and Imprisonment. There I no good reason that can possibly be suggested for State Interference with th bill-posting business in the manner proposed by Mr. O'Obaot. In the esse of a doctor or a lawyer or an engineer In oharge of a steam boiler, the State or municipal Government may properly take precaution to protect the publte from dangers whloh might arise It an unqualified person were permitted to undertake such a pursuit, and hence may insist that he shall ob tain a license as a prerequisite. In the ease of a bill poster, however, there is no conceivable peril to the community which can be the outcome of Incompetency on hla part. And we cannot Imagine what publlo interest demand that a private citizen who haa bill to post or advertising notice to otrcnlate should be prohibited by law nnder pain of fine and imprisonment from posting his bills or circulating his notices himself. No privileged clsss of decorated bill post ers Is desired by the people of this State. loses and Ills Four-dollar Contract, Here Is a queer story from the usually arid literature of the Senate committee rooms. It tells how Mohbb Pxndkbobass ot Knob Lick, Mo., bas been tied up for seven years along with the Government of the United States in a tangle of official rod tape; and it Is worth reading even for those wbo never have been In Knob Lick, and never have heard of Moses. Mr. Pe2tdkbobas8 is a respectable citizen who can neither read nor write. When we call him respectable we mean what we say. for his moral qualltlea have come outstrong in ths trouble in whloh he finds himself, through no fsult ot his own. Bsok In Mr. CiuEvrikd'h first term, when Vilas was Postm as tor-General, the Department advor tlsed for proposals for carrying the malls three times a week over Star route 23.630 ; that Is to say, from Knob Llok by way of Liberty ville and Avon to Coffman and back, thirty miles each round trip; and six times a week to Llbertyvllle and back, twelve miles the round trip. For this service, there were opened at Washington twenty-five bids, ranging from $600 a year, the highest, down to ft a year, the lowest. The $4 bid was Moses Pexdebobass's, and he there foro got the contract. On July 1, 1887, Moses began to carry the malls, having duly qualified and put In his bond, with his neighbors, Presxeu, snd Blanks, ss sureties thereon. Being unable to read or write, Moses waa obliged to de pend upon Postmaster Rudt of Knob Lick, who waa also a Justice of the Peace, for assistance In the formalities and technicali ties ot the business. The Postmaster pre pared the papers, and Moses signed by making his mark. Before he began the service the Department ordered the increase ot trips all ths way to Coffman from three to six times a week, with additional pay, pro rata, to th contractor. So when the first quarter ended on Sept. 30, Moses had made seventy-eight round trips of thirty miles each, riding altogether 2,340 miles over Iron Mountain country roads In 11 sorts of weather, and delivering ths malls st Llbertyvllle, Avon, snd Coffman with fidelity, punctuality, and great cheer fulness ot manner. If he had travelled the same distance In a continuous Journey south, he would have gone about as tsr ss to Blueiields on the Mosquito Coast In Nic aragua! It north, he would have reached the Magnetio Pole, and gone two or three hundred miles beyond It. Moses Pendkbobasswos astounded when for thla arduous service to the Government he received st the end ot tho first quarter a warrant or Treasury check for one dollar and forty-three cents, all ot ths increased compensation Included. Then, after a good deal of official corre spondence between Washington and Knob Lick, It was discovered that although Moses Pzndebqrass had Intended to bid ttOO for the contract, and had so told Post msster RUDT, who drew tho papers for him, snd although Rudy anil the bondsmen had understood that tho bid wan $400, by Incom prehensible carelessness Of in Home strange fit of heterograpby. Mr. lliuv had written "four" Instead of "four hundred." both in the proposal blank and afterward in the blank contract and blank bond. There Is no suspicion of bad faith on Rudy's part; he la merely responsible for an act of neg ligence which bTss made seven years of trouble for Moses. When ths remittance of f 1.43 waa received, the Knob Lick Poet master promptly sent to the Department the following communication : Tkuti JBjSjSjSJ rwtmmMm-Gmwml "Bosss rasDBBosaae'a bid as routo 350 waa 1400 par year.

The Third Assistant Postmaster-General respectfully referred the matter to tha Sec ond Assistant Postmaster-General; aud after the necessary number ot revolutions ot tbs wheels, the circumlocution machine ground out a notice to Ki iy that "the amount ot the proposal ou tile iu this office is very plainly written four dollars per an num; and. therefore, the rate at which Mr. PruiDEBUBAKs has been paid for service for the qusrter ended Sept. 80 Is ths most that he cu be paid for the service. " Another communication addressed to Pzxdebobass stated succinctly what Moses hsd to ex pect In the future from ths United States Government: -Roo-ular ojuarttrlr par Pr tha costracl It 00 Mora tar u.aortar. sadar oxdar bo. h 3JJ as Tolsl sortofl7 aaaapaoaaUoa II SS" It was st this Juuctur that UoaW uioisl qualities came out Uluatrloua.

Avon, and Cwffwan. who dorpewded en Mm and hi mule for th prompt receipt of their letters snd newspapers, but also to American Idea of good eitisenshlp snd loyalty to the constituted authorities. All who know th olrcumntanre testify that Moses's conduct, at a erlsl so Impor tant to himself, waa vary honorabl. disin terested, snd patriotic. Greater men than he. In greater emergencies, hav manifested less fidelity to the publlo Interests. Actu sted by such a spirit, snd comforted, no doubt, by ths belief that so obvious snd simple sn error ss was Involved in the matter of his annual pay could be rectified without much delay by a Government a great and powerful a that of tha United State of America, Moass determined that to acoommodate th Department and hi friend In Llbertyvllle. Avon, and Coffman. Im would continue to carry ths mail bags st the annual rate of $5.71. sxtra compensa tion included, until th tangle could b straightened out st Washington; even though the pay was hardly enough to keep properly shod the off hind foot of ons of his mail mulss. And hs actually performed the service at that ridiculous rate of pay until April 10. 1888. But the tangle wss not strsightened out st Washington. Ths red tape got snarled sround Moses worse snd worse as the months went by. It twisted Itself sround ths legs of PBitDEROBASB's Dondsmsn. soms members of Congress from Missouri, the Senators from that State, and ths higher officers of ths Post Office Dspartment and the Treasury Department, both under Mr. Cleveland's Admlnistrstion snd Gen. Habbison's. Ssrtous question of law, of statutory construction, of Department prec edent and routine arose, and ths official correspondence during several years, con cerning Moses snd his 14 contract, became so voluminous that It would fill a small volume. Moses understood nothing of all this; he kept on In his simple, straightfor ward way, carrying the malls. In order that the service might not be interrupted, and depending on the Government to set him right In ths end. Finally it became apparent that the only way to cut tho rod taps and lot Moses out wss for film to become technically a de faulter on his contract by refusing to per form the service He gsve a month's no tice In the spring ot 1888, and, at the same time, wrote, or rather dictated, a personal letter to the Second Assistant Postmsster Ueneral. It Is not without patho and homely dignity: " Esos Lies. Mo.. Starch 1. 1SSS.

Mosas Pswoiaonatm," In reply, Moses received a curt note from the office of the Second Assistant Poat-mastor-Genersl Informing him that if lie abandoned the service It would be relet at the expenss of himself snd his sureties. Moses hsld on for thirty days, and -then for ten days longer In order not to embarrass ths United States Government. Then ho quit, and the Department engaged some body else to carry the mail bags, paying the substitute S2 a trip, where Moses hsd re ceived about one cent and one-eighth a trip, or $5.72 for a year of 312 thirty-mile trip. Then ths Hon. Adlai E. Stevknsoh, as Act ing Postmaster-General, Issued an official proclamation declaring Moses Pendeb obass a defaulter on his $4 contract with the Government; and the Sixth Auditor of the Treasury ciphered out the Government's claim for damages against Moses and hla sureties. The exact amount for whloh the Government of tho United States hsld Moses responsible was $1,459.85. Such Is red tspe. The clstm ot ths United States against the poor faithful fellow was alive until 1890. when It was graciously remitted, or compromised, on consideration ot the payment by Moses of one dollar Into the United States Treasury. Moses paid his dollar, thereby parting with about one quarter of his entire gross receipts for nine months of diligent work as a Government contractor. No way was ever discovered by the au thorities of the Post Office Department to square accounts with Moses Pendebgbass on the basis of equity and plain Justice to that Innocent sufferer from the clerical blunder of another man. He has waited seven years for the money whloh he hon estly earned. A bill to pay him for his nine months' service in 1887-89, at the rate pro posed by the next lowest bidder in the com petition wherein he figured at $4 a year, haa Just been reported favorably by the Senate Committee on Post Offices. We think most of our resders will sgres with ua in the opinion that tho Moses Pkn- DEBOBASS bill ought to PASS. Ths Tariff In the Ottawa Parliament. The discussion which hss followed the in troduction ot s tariff bill In the Dominion House of Commons by Mr. Fosteb. ths Finance Minister, ought to convince clear headed Canadians that they have but little to expect from either ot the chief political parties so long ss it adheres to its present programme. The mass of the Canadian people know by bitter experienoe that the promised pros perity hss not resulted from the formation of the Dominion Government. They have seen the publlo debt roll up since 1879 from $140,000,000 to $240,000,000. and they have watohed the emigration of over a million of their citizens to ths United States. These are not proofs of well being eud of progress, but signs of actual depieogion and omens of impending disaster; yet. when a remedy is asked for. what la it that the Tories propose on the one hsnd, snd the Lit erals on the other ? The Tories through Mr. Fosteb. offer a new tariff, which, while maintaining the pro tective pi luclple, will make a small reduc tion of duties on a number ot commodities. The Liberals, through Sir Kichabd Cabt wuiiiHi', say truly enough that the turilT tinkering projected by their opponents, will not even palliate, much less cure, the existing paralysis ot trade and industry in the Dominion, snd that the only means ot regenerating the country Is s tresty of rec iprocity with the American republic. It is obvious thst but trivlsl relief will be sfforded to the farmers, lumbermen, min ers, snd fishermen of the Dominion by ths subtraction of a tsw cents from the prices of the imported commodities, which they nay desire to purchase. What troubles them to t!.e difficulty of buying such com modities ou suy terms. What they com plsiu of is. not ths price of imported articles, but their inability to )a for them by a bale of tl.eir own .i.i duels, ihey would cheer fllU ? tho itiiieh hifh( duties exacted by the Mi hiM.SY act. if iu exchange they could ui.iaiu fieo access to the markets of the I mled IsUtea. That ia why Canadian producers will be exasperated by Mr. tosr tbw's prrirjfjesl to ewrtefl lightly tit dntlaa npon Import. They demand an outlet for (heir own staples, and h answer that th Inlet of foreign good hall be facilitated. Their outcry I for customers, and Mr. Fcerm' reply Is that ths way of their pur veyors shall to some extent be smoothed. Instead of bread he give them n stone. Sir RrrjHABD Cabtwbiost, on the con trary, recognize where the hoe pinches, and the mesaur whloh he advocates would afford undoubtedly temporary remedy, if It ever could be carried out. He sees thst whst th Dominion needs Is not an oppor tunity of buying a little more or less chesply from this or thst purveyor, but an oppor tunity of selling to it on great natural oustomsr. He perceive that what Is stifling bis country and driving her sons by the hundred thousand Into exile. Is not the Csnsdian, but ths Amsrlcan tariff. Level to ths ground that tariff wall which now runs aero the continent and bar out the Canadian producer from the enormous market at hla door, and It would matter but little to him what duties were levied upon Imports from Europe. Sir Richabd Cabtwbioht recalls the tremen dous stimulus given to the output of Cana dian raw product by the treaty of partial reciprocity negotiated by Lord Klotm; and he remembers that in those days thsre was no fear of wholesale emigration of Cana dians to tha United States. Ho Is right In thinking that. If he could obtain a treaty of unrestricted reciprocity with the American Union, there would be an Instantaneous re vival of Canadian prosperity. However, the Improvement secured in this way would b at beat but precarious. A treaty, af tor all. is but treaty I that is to My, an international agreement termin able at the option of either party after a fixed period. Experience has shown that this option Is always turned to account; that sooner or Ister, one of the parties to treaty of commerce discovers that the other haa got the better of th bargain, and give notice ot withdrawal from the agreement. So. even If Sir Hk hard Cartwrioiit could gain the concession which be dsslres from the United States, the benefit secured would be only transient; it would afford no solid and durable basis for the develop ment ot Canadian Industries. But Sir Richabd will never get, in point of fact, a treaty of reciprocity from the American people. He deludes himself and his Cana dian constituents, when hs holds out the hope of such treaty. American citizens know in advance what would be the outcome of such bargain. They have not the faintest Intention of exchanging a mar ket ot 70,000,000 consumers for market of 5,000,000. They would laugh out of Congress the statesman who should bring forward a one-aided proposal of that kind. The privilege of free access to ths colossal mar ket offered by our population of 70,000,000 Is reserved, and will always be reserved, to citizens of ths United States. By annexation, and by that means only, can Canadians enter once for all on that path of prosperity and progress of which they had a delightful glimpse during the operation of the Elgin treaty. Th Senate and the Klmlra Reform atory. The New York Senate yesterday passed an eminently proper resolution providing for the appointment ot a legislative com mittee of inquiry into the management of the Elniira Reformatory. Whether the legislative oommlttee, as finally con stituted, consists of representatives of ons or both branches of the Legislature, we as sume that we shall hear no more of demands made upon the Chief Executive of this Stats for his hasty approval of the hallow and unfair report condemning Mr. Bbookway, which has emanated from the prejudiced survivor ot a committee that rightfully should have perished with the retirement ot the majority of its members. Such demands, whloh are essentially threats, are at once insulting to Gov ernor Flowkb and to the Intelligence of the people of New York, whose prids it has been for yesrs thst they have maintained a prison which stands at ths head ot the penal institutions ot tho world. If, after a careful, fair, and free in vestigation by a body ot men competent to conduct It, Superintendent Bbookway Is found to deserve condemnation in place of the praise which hs has re ceived tor a decodo, let blm and the men who have supported him be fittingly punished; but until such an ln vestigstlon establishes ths fact, let us spars the Eniplrs State the disgrace of brutally destroying an honored servant and a penitentiary famous for Its results, on tho strength of a report whloh bears upon Its face ths marks of distortion and suppression of facts! bitter prejudice, and even subornation of perjury. Ths election of Father Malonr to be a Itegsnt of the University would appear, when carefully analyzed, to be an act of hostility to the Catholic Church.

We ap preciate, value, and ilk the German lan guage, but neither the German ner the Frenab, neither the Italian ner the Bohemian. neither the Hebrew nor the Yiddish, can ever become the speech of this country. There is no doubt that the (eruisn- American papers in Herman are the means of preventing t housands of our German immigrants from learning the language of ur laws, legislation, aad commerce, and thus ot preventing them from winning that high meaeure of prosperity which their iadustry aud Intelligence would otberwii command.
