If It was, iv In fact, the recantation of the message which j Mr. Watterson says it was, it was but f one of five denials of tho once Democratic tfy principle that the tariff shall be for M revenue only, all equally pusillanimous Ek nnd deceitful when placed by the sldo of Mr. Cr.EVELAND'sdlrect utterances, but two i of them Incomparably more contemptible p' than the others in that thoy were treachery j?, to political pledges. p$ The platform ofTered by Mr. Cleveland Sj to tho Democratic party In 1888 was not his tariff message. Tbe platform that he St again offered In 1 802 was square protec- J tlon. But his speech accepting tbe nomlnv Jr-. tlon in 1802 was a deliberate evasion of the ft-f party tariff plank. And the tariff bill 3k which later came from him to Congress was a square betrayal of it. To the last, also, he W was a coward and refused, with the usual tf high-sounding protestations of virtue In H himself and "perfidy and dishonor" in oth- ' era, cither to sign or veto tbe bill standing vi In the name of the Democratic party. ;& Tlmo only can provo to us tho extent of ;, national misfortune it was when a candi $ dute for President could bo elected holding i-L1 " aloft, as Cleveland held In shamelessness, ij;. the Homestead torch and dagger. Time )'r' also will finally show to all, except the ? hopeless Cuckoo maniacs, how the blight f of a free-silver campaign was the result of !C ' Ceveland'8 ambition for a third term. . But when we look at the lost two Presiden ts Oal elections together, we see, happily, that 'P;'" the frenzied socialistic spirit of tho coun S" try culminated for Cleveland in 1802. m Four years later, under Hryan, it failed.

Rj"' Namo the Spot. Bg- . Perhaps after all President McKtNLEY BJ ' rill make tbe demonstration of asking for Hjj the approval of Congress for a commission Kv on tho currency. Lot us, however, avoid Rl misrepresentation upon this question on tbe Bfc part of Republican journals at least, Icnv- Uli' lag that to tbe Mugwumps. Tbe Clncln- Ukj natl Commercial Tribune, tbo leading lie- Wfk publican organ of Ohio, speaking of the B.V' "pledges made In tbe National Republican Hy' platform of 1800," says that It was "also Hj promised that steps should be taken to KT' reform our paper currency." Wk? Will the Commercial Tribune point out K' where the aforesaid promise Is to be found? Hv Our question Is as simple as it Is short. Tho Pond Lilies. HS Tbe President of tbe Board of Aldermen, BEl . now, In the Mayor's absence, acting Mayor K( of Now York, baa recently vetoed a rcsolu- Uff tlon of tho Board of Aldermen adopted at HI; the auggestlou, and for the benefit, of what Ki known as the "Pond Lily Pleasure li Club." This association Is ono of many tdki similar organizations the members of K' which beguile the tedium of midsummer HU by visits to the green fields In the form of Hjf' "excursions." Tbo resolution adopted for J" the Pond Lilies waa to this effect : M.l? ' "Jtuolved, That permlulon b aid the same la br- Hjt by given to the Poud Lily Pleaaun Cluu to drive a BA- wagon through tbe territory, bounded by tbe Baal B,j lUvar. Orand atreet, Thirl an-nu and Eat Pour- W' t-nth street for tbe purpose of annouuclng tbe an- R;t'. aval aicunlon of tbe association, sucb permlulon to Bpi' eoallnneoue week after tbe date of approval of bit Hf-A' Honor tbe Mayor, excluding Sunday." K. Ordinance COO of tbe city regulations Bt. explicitly provides that "no advertising Hj? trucks, vans, or wagons shall be allowed in Bv tbo etreeta of tho cltjr of e w York under a y e.i penalty of 910 oeh otoe." bveto log tbo reaolotloa of the AMenaea, the Acting Mayor, Mr. Jerolouam, eaado thU explanation t Ta tht IlonorabU Beard of A Utrmtn I "I return herewith, without approval, resolution of your honoiabl body permitting th Pond Lily Pltaa. nreClubtodrirrawagoa Uiruugh tbe strreta. on th ground that the people of this city complain of many nnnaonsary noises In th publlo streets, and th Chief of Polk-, with commendable teal, ha taken up tb matter of abating tbla Inerrtalng anUancoi and your bonorabi board shonld aid him In hla efforts to abat all unosoeaaary noise In th street. The driving of warona throush th pub'to street, with a band of music, to advertl a show, patent mullein, article of merchandise. excunl na, Ac, I quit otuwoesaary and erre no publlo Interest or snd." The ordinance adopted by the Aldermen did not explicitly allow tho Pond Lille to use a band of muslo to mako known to the Inhabitants of the large territory north of Grand street and south of Fourteenth street, east of Third avenue and west of the East River, that there was to be an excursion of tholr organization, but probably that was tbe Implication. At any rate. Acting Mayor JunoLOMAN'a veto Is a salutary and com mendablo excrclso of authority to prevent avoldablo Btrcot noises, more especially when there Is a specific ordinanco requir ing enforcement. In entire harmony with the course pur sued and the position taken by Mr. Jerolo man In the case of the Pond Lilies Is the position taken by the Commissioner of Public Works, C. O. T. Collis, In opposi tion to tbe demand of some other social or ganizations to utilize lamp posts of tbe city to advcrtlso tholr outings, excursions, chowder parties, and picnics. Gen. Collis, In a letter to tho Acting Mayor, says: " Oaa lamp are ereoted and Illuminated for th protection or the general public, and th sxpenie of maintaining them Is ebarg-d to th whol body of taxpayer. Th.y ought not to hnedfor the pur pose of Illuminating alr-rttalng Iranaparenole of political club and organisations, or for any other purpose thanthut for wblob they are a charge upon th- cl Iten. The publlo la entitled to all the light these lampa will afford without diminution tor pri vate purpose.' By courageous insistence upon the rights of citizens under ex 1h ting ordinances, tho city authorities can promptly and effective ly put an end to tho abuse or misuse of streets and of public property by the Pond Lilies and other similar organizations. No Opportunity for Compromisers. Ordinary compromises, based on mutual concessions, as dictated by prudence or ex pediency, aro not unusual in the Held of politics. Many beneficent results, not pos sible) of attainment otherwise, have been secured through the medium or agency of such compromises, Involving no surrender of principle, honor, or consistency. There is and can bo In the city of New Tork, however, no compromise between tho forces opposed to and the forces extenu ating or tolerating Bryanlsm. The gulf which divides them cannot by any dexter ity or chicanery be bridged. The existence of each force as a political factor is de pendent upon the existence of the other. Any compromlso which fulls short of the surrender of tho conservatives or the van quishing of the radicals is impracticable. On the one side are massed all the forces of conservatism, stronger In tho city of New York than in any other community of the United States. These conservative forces are drawn together by the Inherited sen timent for tho existing principles of our politics and by the necessity for the protec tion of the enormous material Interests of this town. They can make no concession to the forces of political anarchy and com munism without entailing the surrender of some vested right, or of tbo authority of representative government In the United States. If tho mandates of Judicial tribu nals In the United States are to be re spected only when they accord with the wishes of Bryanltes, property rights are no longer secure. Thero Is no possibility of compromise. If the Bryanlte demand Is that tbe coin age ratio and standard of value shall be regulated by the Government solely with a view to benefiting debtors by decreasing their lawful Indebtedness, will not any compromise bo substantially consent to downright repudiation? If, as the original Populists, now tempo rarily clothed in the uniform of Democ racy, contend, the Government bos a gen eral distributive power and agency over all business, regardless of the rights or In terests of individuals, who is there to guar antee, under any " compromise," what will be the limit of its exercise? We say this because sundry Individuals aro now making thcmttelves offlclous with proposals of compromises to harmonize ir reconcilable principles with a view to ob taining rewards for their political activity. Count Okuma'a Notions. Tbe latest news from Yokohama Is that Japan's Minister of Foreign Affairs de clares that she docs not want trouble, but must not recognize annexation. In this country tho sentiment Is equally strong that wo aro not looking for trouble, but Hawaii must bo annexed. We think that In thn end there will be less practical conflict between these two Ideas than may now appear. Whether Japan recognizes annexation is mora her affair than ours. She can consult her convenience in that matter. The quickest and best so lution of tho whole problem, however, Is to annex Hawaii at once. Count Okuma Is right In pointing out tbe future Importance of Hawaii as a Pacific way station, in view of the probable comple tion of an Isthmus canal. But that Is a rea son why wu should own tho islands. The present moment Is propitious for annexing them; and since Japan seems disposed to put to arbitration her dispute with Hawaii, we shall do well to take Hawaii under tho protection of the Union before any fresh troubles arise for her. The Outlawry of Zionism. In decisive language, " Zionism " has been condemned by the Conference of American Rabbis. Tho resolution adopted at tbe con ference opens with tho words : " We totally disapprove of any attempt to promote the establishment of a Jewish State In Pates tine." Tho assembled rabbis were of ono mind In regard to the matter. The report on the subject, which received their ap proval, declared that Zionism Is " Infinitely harmful to those of our brethren living where they are yet persecuted, by confirming tbe assertion of their enemies that the Jews aro foreigners In the countries In which they dwell." Further along In tbe report there Is tbe statement: " We reaffirm that the object of Judaism Is not political or national, but spiritual." Probably tbe anti-Zlonlst deliverance of the conference Is In accord with tbe opinion and tbe sentiment of the great majority of the Jewish people In tbe United States. All of the Jewish Journals received at Tbe Son ofllco which ore printed in tho EnglUh lanj SM&tnafpMektoZtiilfcm. We can also y that all tho 00178 taftnouttai rabbis In this city are opposed to It, We have not heard that any rcpreeeatatlTcB of tho Juda ism of thle country hare been elected to tho Universal Zionist Convention that Is to bo held at Munich next month. Two or throe I meetings of Immigrant Russian Jews desir ous of the restoration of Jerusalem have , been held in this cliy ; but thoy met with no support from those of tho Jewish people who ore citizens of tho United States. Dr. Hrrzl's Idoa of founding a Jewish State In Palestine Is romnntlo but unprac tical Palestine is a part of the Turkish empire, and Is under the rule of the 8ultan, whose authority will be paramount there until his dominion Is broken. When broken, another power orother powers than Turkey will be seen there. Russia will have to bo consulted about tho disposal of tho terri tories that are now Turkey's. Wo may tako It for granted that oil tho powers of Chris tendom will refuse to surrender tho holy places of Christianity to any Zionist Gov-1 ernmentor toglvoup the guardianship of thorn which they bold oven under tho rulo of the Turk. The holy sepulchre Is at Jerusalem. Apart from these considerations, Pales tine Is on unfit home for the Jews of modern times. Largo parts of It are waste. It Is notblgenougb for the ten million Jews of the world. Tho dominant religion there, to which most of tho Inhabitants belong, to Mohammedan. It Is not a commercial centre. The Jow of our day, too, Is different from the Jew of Solomon's time, or of the Ro man period. Ho Is not adapted to the life of the ages of old. His chnrncter bos changed during tho past two thousand years. Zionism, therefore, In our Judgment, Is visionary. It Is a castle In tho air. It Is not a thing that will evor commend itself to tho broad-minded Jows of tho United States. It may as well pass out of thought, since It has received tho condemnation of tho conforonco of American rabbis. Tho Kaiser's Birds. The grave discussion in tho British Rouse of Commons the other night of Germany's action In sending carrier pigeons to Dover to see whether they would get back to Dus scldorf shows how sensitive; the English are on the subject of home defence. It recalls tho fact that onco, a fow years ago, when It was proposed to tunnel tho British Channel for transportation pur poses, distinguished military authorities, among them Lord Wolselet himself, gave their opinion that such tunnelling would lessen tho dcfenslblllty of the Isl ands, while vivid imaginations conjured up pictures of an army of Germans or Frenchmen, or both, passing through this submarine conduit and emerging to give battle on England's soil. It was In vain to represent that this implied tbe seizure first of tbe English exit, a foreign approach to which ought to bo prevented by England's big navy ; or to point out that an army In tho tunnel, unable to get out at the English end, would be in a bad box. The project was killed In Parliament, and England breathed freely. The present case is less serious, since It concerns not the Incursion of an enemy, but tho conveyance of tidings to him. Yet tbo great extent to which tho German experiments have been carried on, 2,000 birds, it Is said, being set apart for them, and the fact that the German War Office Is conducting them, have created much indignation. It is even reported that tho Kaiser himself owns a hundred of the liberated birds. Mr. BnoDEniCK, the Brit ish Under Secretary of War, said that Ger many would not like to have Great Britain take similar liberties on her noil, and that the War Ofllce was considering tbe matter. Homing pigeons constitute a wcll-recog-nlzcd military appliance, and lofts for training them are familiar in European ar mies. But what will be tho worry of Eng land when ballooning Is developed to the point now hoped for, and when travelling through the air may baffle even tho navy on which she relies to keep her from the in trusion of hostile scoutsl Settling and Protectlnc the Yukon. The optimism with which Secretary Sewaiid regarded tho future of Alaska, when ho drew the treaty for purchasing It from Russia, thirty years ago, seems hnrdly misplaced to-dny. This northwest corner of the continent has developed slowly, and the cultivated crops once predicted for it by enthusiasts have been most minute, wbllo, thanks to British rclaglo sealers, the value of the Pribylov Islands, an im portant element in tho purchase price, boa been to a great extent destroyed. But on the other hand the mineral wraith of Alaska has surpassed reasonable expecta tions, and its further possibilities arc the talk of the hour. It Is this wealth, too, which bos brought to Alaska a large part of its white popula tion; and, although the new Klondike fields aro on the Canada side of the boundary, diggings as rich mar yet bo found on the American side, for tho whole Upper Yukon region Is a gold-bearing tract, Canada thinks that, with the Klondike, Bonanza, Eldorado, Bear, Gold Bottom, Hunker, In dian, and othor creeks and rivers, she has a gold belt three hundred miles long, and that she will soon have 1 0,000 people there. For tbe moment, no doubt, the tendency Is to draw away the miners from American to British territory; but Alaska, In the long run, will be built up as tbe result of the new craze for going north. The latest news also Indicates that In tbe Mlnook and American Creek districts of Alaska. rich discoveries of gold have been made, and thero Is constant expectation of finding great yields on the American side. Then tho fact that we bold the whole coast line from British Columbia around to tho Arctic, and hence control the ports at which those land wbo go to tbe Yukon by way of Cbllkoot Pass, will tend to build up Alaska. Besides the Juneau route to tbe gold fields, attention Is Just now largely directed to the routo up the Yukon by light-draught boats. In connec tion with ocean-going steamers from Seat tle to St. Michael's; and that, toq, would Imply tbe gradual development of Ameri can territory. At all events, the question of proper government and protection for Alaska becomes timely and may soon be most urgent. The Dominion has always been prompt and forehanded in like matters on Its side. It has an advantage In its body of Northwest Mounted Police, which has large adminis trative and executive powers. Year before last, for example, one of Its Inspectors es tablished a post at Fort Cudaby, near the Klondike tract, and collected revenues, while last year a regular customs officer was appointed. There are three police posts already in that region, and fears of Canadian encroachment were formerly aroused by them ; but tbelr purpose seems to be purely administrative, and the police force, we believe, has been increased lately. WBfttweoattoflotaUM ttUtUor Is not yet quite clear. For years wa bod two la fantry compute In Alaska, and they war withdrawn partly because of so little am there and partly because needed .elsewhere. They wore stationed In the southerly sea coast strip, and were rarely called upon to do anything, for the natives were mostly peaceable. Besides, In the look of roads, the method of getting about was by water, and that suggested that a naval force was tbo ono chiefly needed. In fact, the revenue cutters, aided by a small gunboat, have been relied npon sines tho withdrawal of tho troops. But tbe case of the Upper Yukon is rather different. There, considerable Inland settle ments may be looked tor, and lately It has been suggested that a small garrison might bo stationed there properly. Wo have to consider not only the good order of the Territory, but possible International excite ments, growing out of disputed boundaries, land titles, alien labor laws, revenue taxes, and so on. Congress presumably will And appeals to It, next winter, to revise tbo Territorial laws of Alaska, In view of tho current gold-seeking craze, nnd perhaps It can find In that revision a substitute for permanently stationing troops In that severe climate, with tho great cost of trans porting and renewing garrisons and for warding supplies. Indeed, tho chances of enormous desertions might be one of tho chief obstacles to sending troops to Alaska unless absolutely needed. Some bills re lating to Alaska have Just beon Introduced. Meanwhile the gunboat Concord Is on her way from Port Angeles to Sitka, For Revenue Only. Tho tariff has gono off the field of Issues. Its discussion for Bome years at least will bo academic purely, without thought of practical result. After a decade of distress ing worry and incalculable loss, arising out of tho roily and dishonesty of tho politicians In control of tho Democratic party, wo are about to settle down to rest upon a pro tective basis laid by tho Republicans. Vet, In spite of the entire Democratic campaign and tariff bill, tbe only unflinching inter pretation of tbo revenue only principle pro claimed In tho Democratic platform of 1802, is to be found in tbe speech of the leader of the Chicago Democracy In the House of Representatives, the Hon. Joseph W. Bailey of Texas, delivered as the Ding ley bill loft tho Uouso for final adoption by the Senate : " I am opposed to Republican protection beoana It discriminates between American dtllena. giving to the one wbo eel! an unjust advantage over tbo on who buy! ant I a-n opposed to thla modern theory of free raw materlala because It dlscrlmlaatee again between American cltltena, giving to th one who buya an unjust advantage over the one who sell.' Tbis expresses clearly tbe doctrine of a tnriff for revenue only. With such a tariff there can bo no discrimination, no Juggling divisions between what should be taxed and what should be free in accordance with he Judgment of tho passing politician as to what would bo best for tbo majority or minority of the public. It is queer Indeed that, outside of TnE Sun, the only sound definition of the great principlo of 1 802 to rise to tho surface comes from the Popocratic leader in the House of Representatives In tbe year 1807. It was a hard necessity for true and loyal Democrats to bo obliged to Otrht against a regu lar Dcmoeratlo national ticket last year. It has been even harder for them to acknowledee lo themselves that they must continue tho debt ngalnst tho nominal Democratic party this year and every sucoecdlnK year until It Is thoroughly subdued; but dny by day they aro beromlnir mora and mora convinced that only by snch resolute opposition enn they prove their loyalty to true and genuine Democracy. It must be a fight to a finish all along the lino and without Intermission. Tho newspapers throughout the Union aro colebrating the return of prosperity. In thnt they are nerced. wbttever mny be their differences In political opinions. All of them. North, South, East, and West, think they dis cern the indications that this country 1 about to enter upon a period of prosperity, and their sight la not at fault.

Tbe lubject which had before beon foremost In tho puMto thought and in private discussion was no longer talkod about. The present Government wss remaining In power with no Issuis provoking popular interest which threstoned It continued existence Sharp snd angry political division had coased, snd politics accordingly had dropped out of conversation. It cannot he sMrt that there (syetarlmllnr state of things In this country but the main, the only letuo whloh are now dividing po litical sentiment have passed beyond the region of debate, Tho opposing opinions touch the ttlver question and the other questions railed by tbs Chicago platform last yrnr, and they are fixed beyond tho possi bility of change, Domocrnts and Repub licans, long In bitter partisan dlsngrco ment, which made rensonnhlo discussion of politics between thrm nlmnst Impossible, now sgroo In condumnlng the Chicago platform or In sustaining Its policies nnd doctrines.

They nil fcol thnt the occurring developments of Iho political situ ation seem to indlcato thnt until the Presidential election of 11)00 they will bo obliged to stand totrether politically In resistance tothoChlrago platform. Democrats who had been hoping that some means of rescuing their party from the rlutrhesof the Populism which strnngtot it principles nt Chicago Inst year would bnvo appeared long before this hnvo given up Iho hope at Inst. They see tbit tho coiilltlon thon made continues In undiminished strength, de termined to keep tho titular DemoTnllcptrty In Its grasp.

Those papers are vying with ono another In attempts to Btlr up Incendiary pas sions and provoko social vlolcnro nnd rebel lion, and they pursue, thnt course dnllywllh tho aid of Inflammatory pictures which aro more devilish In their conception than any of tho appeals for which Moit and Emma Goldman wcro Indicted nnd Impris oned. The feeling among conaervntlvo citizens grows more and more determined, accordingly, that they must continue unltr1 In order to pro servo civilised society against the forces of revolution which are being trained to attack It. Tbelr polltiral disagreement has been silenced by agreement as to their social obligations. Tho tariff question no longer provokes the controversy formerly excited by It. I have yet to meet n man. Democrat or Republican, who doe not rejoice that tho DIngley TnrllT bill Is so soon to become law. All business agrees In that sentiment, even where there la criticism of somo of Its details, and together with that unanimity Is a common conviction thnt the tlmo has come when all furth-r attempts to make tho tariff question a prime issue of politics should bo frowned upon by the business and Industrial In terests of tho country. The7 will resist reso lutely tho Introduction of theoretical dis cussions of tho tariff for the purpose of party ndvantagc. Whatever political gain has been obtained from such controversy was se cured at tho cost of hetvy loss to business, for which there has been no compensation in tho way of triumph for nny economic theory. Tho theory of the McKlnley. tho Wilson, nnd tho DIngley tariffs Is substantially the same. Tho years spent in the controversy, so fearful in Its Injury to onr trade nnd manufacture, hnvc been WBBti-d. We have simply got hack to tho point from which wo etartoi; nnd the peoplo are tired of It. They will not suffer it to bo continue-!. Tbeuninlmlty of thobuBlness community in that sentiment will havo the happy conse quence of removing n cause of bitter partisan difference and thus promoting tbe hnrmony of political feeling essential to overcome tbe Chi cago enemy. Nor Is the tariff nn Issue which will give force and host to tho rnmpalgn of tho Bryan Democracy. Thnt combination Is m.do up of political rlcmcnts whlth dlsngrco as to the subject, nnd prudence will require thit It bo kept In the background or eliminated alto gether. Tho tariff, nlso. Is no longor a sectional question; the South la brenklng up its solidity with referenco to tho tnriff. Whon, therefore, tho questions raised by the Chicago platform arc settled It soenis to mo thai we also are likely to enter upon an ern of political good feeling. Mointlmo Indications multiply that we "ro approaching a period of great business and industrial prosperity, which of Itself will settle for us Iho social problems wblcn seem now to bo full of menace. If tho conaervntlvo forces of our socloty keep united as they were untlod lost year, theUrynn Democ racy mny loarn even before 1000 bow hopeless is Its strugglo to overthrow tho principles upon uhlch our social structure nnd our political institutions aro founded. Dy such union tho Chicago raorenv-nt can surely be chocked in tho end, and If It meet I with reverse nt every succeeding election in the I States most powerful politically. Iho sooner will come tho day of Its flnnl overthrow. According ly, my ndvlco to conservative Democrats and Republicans alike Is to keep togother and make common cause ng tinst tho foo of both revolu tionary Bryanlsm. They can whip It, but only as a united political army. lljusnATTAN. New York, July SO. A Card from lbs Consnl-Genernl or San Do mingo.

Hr etntod that ono day a woman was brought to his surgery, having been shot in tho head with a bullet from a phtol. alio had beon In an auction room. Whllo tho auctioneer was exhibiting and sell ing tho pistol. It went off and hot tho woman. Ho was unaware It had been loaded. Tho bul let wns nut found. Tho woman died. The auctioneer wns tried for manslaughter, but won , ncquittcd, tho jury finding that tho causo of ' death was accidental. About ten year thereafter another woman was brought to tho surgery of tho professor ono day. She bad been idiot In tho breast with n bullet from u, pistol. Tho woman and her 1 husband had Inlendod to emigrate. Tho hus band had bought a pistol to defend himself from tho attack-, of robbers or savages in n foreign land. Whllo examining tbe pistol In 1 his houso it wont off. Bhootlntr his wife, wbo was billing opposite. Tho bullet was found: Iho womnn rotoverod. Tbe husband was troi for reckloss uso of firearm, but was acquitted. Af'or tho trial tbe chief criminal officer wbo. singularly enough, had charge of both cases firoscnted tho pistol to the professor. It wan ho eamo weapon that bad caused both acci dents. Ho stated that tho criminal authori ties had returned tho pistol on tbe first occa sion to tho party to whom it belonged. After tbo second accident It was deemed advisable to put tho weapon In safo keeping. Ultimately the professor nandod over tho pistol as a unique but dangerous relic to a Scottish museum. It bears a historical inscription. Threo Utile Fellow Officially Welcomed. From (A iVncer Time.
