Tho Auk of tho E country's hope for social peaco and pros- rg perlty will be seen in tho contest to elect W New York's next Mayor. & What of the next step in this fatuous a and shameful movement!

The Berlin newspaper which says that 4 President McKinlby believes his prede- i cessor left the administration of Samoa too l much in tho hands of Germany and Eng f Jand is probably correct in its assertion. Indeed, that predecessor openly urged f Congress to toko steps for withdrawing $ altogether from the share of tho admlnls i tratton which belongs to us under tho ! Berlin treaty, and from the treaty Itself. 'I ' There is no doubt that tho Berlin agree- f ynent, which in somo respects was expert- J mental, can be improved, and perhaps there Js ground for the report that the President desires our Consul-Gcneral at Apia to sug- fi gest Improvement. But it will bo observed j that the purpose attributed to tho PresI- dent Is " to restore fully American Inilu- ff ence." This Is quite a different aim from w Mr. Cxkyelaxd's, which was to throw up jj the obligations which we had assumed 5 Jointly with England and Germany, and 5 leave the natives, who have always counted on our friendship, to tho tender mercies of J these two powers.. f We should be glad to learn that an 1 American warship had been ordered to 6 visit Apia. There seems to be no special 1 disturbance there now. but as our flag has S not been seen on a war vessel there for years, a call from such a vessel might as- sure the Samoans that wo have not forgot IV ten them. Apia Is not a long run from fe Honolulu, and while Hawaii, of course, ab t sorbs our chief attention in tho Pacific, wo g may well have a little regard for tho group In the South Seas. Kd . Bryanlsm Mast Fight. f The Republican party will go into tho f campaign next month with a ticket of its , own, squarely representative of Its prln- 4; ' clples. That is, it will go In to fight openly f against Bryanlsm from beginning to finish. Wft How will it be with Bryanlsm? Will it Bv dare to come out into tho open to join issue B t with its old enemy, or, because it was beaten Mk ' last year, will it now sneak away to avoid m'S. a renewal of the fight? Bryanlsm cannot avoid assault upon it all .' along Its lines, however loath It may bo to Kv '' meet the onset. Either aggressively or de- Ht ' fensively It will have to fight for its life. In The cowardly spirit displayed by tho Dcm- ? ccratlc State Committee last "Wednesday, ll i under Tammany Inspiration, Indicates that jL . i It will have little stomach for the bat- tt ' tie.

Tho accusa tion wan mado In tho last campaign that Bryanltca wore McKlnley buttons because of fear that they would suffer in pocket by proclaiming their truo allegiance; but that trick of concealment and false pretence will not serve In tho caso of a great organ ization like Tammany. Tho bargain to hide away Bryanlsm has been made, but its terms cannot bo fulfilled. The Bryan army cannot retreat from tho fight which will be forced on it all the more fiercely because It seeks to run away from it. Not a Republican) Not a Democrat Not nn American. The famoui) phrase "I am a Democrat," uttered by tho Hon. David Behnott Hill, has been altered to suit tho purposes of Mr. Seth Low Into "I am o Republican." While Mr. Him, was indeed a Democrat, Mr. Low Is not In truth n Republican, for a much deeper reason than his retirement from that patty and his acceptance of a nomination conceived in hostility to it. In this country Republicans and Demo crats are ono in their fundamental Idea of popular and partisan government. All genutno Americans are democrats. Tho passion with which they drove out the king soon blossomed into the spirit of popular rule by parties, to remain the genius of the country throughout Its growth Into ono of tho most powerful and oxtcn bIvo on tho globe, and to remain such for ever. Tho system of partisan issues, party lenders, and party responsibility goes from tho bottom to tho top of American politics, keeping the United States homo geneous and united by one supreme national sentiment. It gives tho country tho repose of confidence in tho Indestructibility of itn political institutions. In both the Democratic and Republican parties the popular will Is ascertained by tho samo ma chinery and executed In the samo spirit. With this common method Mr. Low has no connection at all and no sympathy. Ho Is not a democrat and not a republican. Tho Citizens' Union, which nominated him, required its members to hand over to a committee of men, named arbitrarily, tho powers of choosing delegates to nom inating conventions which they would have kept as members of tho Democratic or Republican organization. Later, this com mittee decided that their candldato should bo nominated by' a small committee of twenty, to bo appointed by their Chairman; bo, at last, Mr. R. Fcltox Cuttino became tho unprecedented boss of the Citizens' Union's politics and the maker of Mr. Low. To give a little) color of popularity to tho nomination after It had been made, a lot of people wero persuaded to sign a petition containing Mr. Low's name only, and this, It Is needless to say, was obtained under the false pretense that Mr. Low insisted on being a "unifying force." Mr. Low was left to make his own platform, and what was the result? This is It: " I must be free to serve New York ac cording to my best Judgment." Tlifit. In linintilno nnfrin 111 tYiiftnlnfy1f plausibility, Mr. Low will be Mayor as ho pleases, without loyalty or responsibility to any popular idea, or sentiment, or sys tem, veiling the offensive character of his despotism with protestations of superior virtue. In exalting himself he slanders by Implication the entire American system. He Is no more a Republican or no better an American than was the late Ahkoond of Swat. His political pretensions should be stamped on as detestable and intolerable In any spot in this Republic. Tho Duration of Human Life. It will bo remembered that Sir Geoiioe Cohnewall Lewis persistently expressed the belief that no man or woman had ever lived to bo a century old. By an odd coin cidence, opinions distinctly at variance with his aro published in tho September number of the Nineteenth Century by one whose early education was guided by him ; wo refer to Lady Gi.enksk. Apparently she has not had access to the Russian sta tistics, which vouch for tho existence, at tho present time, of several persons who have exceeded a century, not only by thirty or forty, but even by fifty years. She, her self, however, brings forward some remark able examples of longevity, upon which, and upon the analogies supplied by the lower animals, she bases the conclusion that the human being was intended for greater length of lifo than Is usually at tained in our artificial existence, and that, under favorable circumstances, he ought to bo able to llvo about one hundred and twciity-flvo years. It may be stated broadly that an animal llveH from eight times to five times as long as it grows. This Is a well-attested scien tific fact. Of fish tho can) aro esneclallv long-lived. To some memlcrs of the rop t lie tribe also a remarkable longevity is at tributed. Among birds, tho parrot, tho raen, the swan, and tho eagle are credited with great length of life. In tho mamma lia, sinco we havo no aocurato means of ascertaining a whale's age, It may bo said that the elephant In tho most long-lived. It glows for twenty-live or thirty years, and is xnid to llvo to ono hundred and fifty, and even longer. Tho horse Is, comparatively, iv short-lived animal, but It Is a well known fact that, when he docs little work and pauses the greater part of his doys In pasture, he moy compass a)out forty years of life. Now, man In a natural state, that Is to eny, where tho ripening period Is not artificially hastened, requires at least twenty-five years for tho organs of tho body not counting tho brain, which develops later to obtain complete growth and full maturity. If wo apply to him the ratio between tho duration of growth and tho duration of existence, which is exhibit ed by other mammals, ho should reach an age of nt leost one hundred and twenty.flve cars, and, in England as well as Inltus sla, ho has been known to go beyond this, like, for Instance, Old Paiui, who, said to havo been born In 148II, died in 1033. Striking, also, are the faota in tho caso of Marii: Duiiaxd, which Lady Glenksk took pains to verify by corresponding with tho Mayor of her nativo town in tho Department of Isorc, and by commis sioning a friend to visit tho old peasant herself. Extracts from the parish registers show that MAnic Dukaxd was bom In 17C0 and was married to her first bus baud in 1784. Two sons by her first mar riage wero killed at the battle of Fried land and in Spain. Sho was living In 18SS, being then ono hundred and twenty llvo years old. Among modern English examples of longevity may be mentioned Lady Smith, who lived to be one hundred and six; Mi?s J:i.iz.jiktjx (Jiuv (an aunt of Gen. Ct'NxixuiiAM Roberts), who died Ja 1858, within twenty-two days of her ono hundred and eighth birthday; Mh Joanna IIasttxos of Malvern, who In 1885 aitalned her ono hundred and third birthday, and Wilmam Makn of Kirk field, near Haddo, who died at tho ago of one hundred ond seven. It Is scarcely worth while to ctto such well-known In stances as thoso of M. CnKVTtKtn, who lived to be ono hundred and two, and Sir Moses MojrrKFioiiK, who In 1885 died in his ono hundred and first year. Tho comparat 1 vely frequent appearanco of fcmlnlno names In tho records of longevity Is duo to tho fact that while up to tho ago of twonty-flvo tho man Is undoubtedly younger and less de veloped than the woman, yet In the next twenty or thirty years tho man ages much more rapidly, so that tho woman, If sho can escape the perils of childbirth, haa tho better chance of attaining oxtremo length of life. It seems, then, that arguing from tho analogies furnished by other animals and relying on well-attested cases of cxtremo longevity In human beings, the writer in tho Nineteenth Century Is justified In re jecting tho axiom attributed to tho Psalm ist that tho "days of man are threescore years and ten." It is strange, indeed, as Lady Glenesk says, that bo many pcoplo overlook a very different averment on tho subject, mado on higher Scriptural author ity. We refer to tho mcmorablo declara tion In Genesis, vl., 3, that " Yet his days hall be an hundred and twenty years." Also we read in Deuteronomy, xxxlv., 7: " And Moses was an hundred and twenty years old when ho died; his oyo was not dim nor his natural forco abated." The Spinach Splash Averted. It is gratifying to chroniclo tho fact that no sooner was tho attention of Mnjor Mc Kn(LEY'8 Administration called to the true significance of the proposal to restore tho sickly green two-cent postage stamp, than the project was abandoned. A technical pretext was readily found for this graceful and Judicious surrender to public opinion. From higher authority the word came down that the sickly green Idea must be dropped ; and Grke Arsenic Howard, if he really is still the head devil In these Intrigues, slunk bock discomfited to his verdigris haunts. This Is a great victory for sound aesthet ics. Citizens will not be compelled to risk nn attack of nausea every time they mall or re ceive an envelope carrying the unit of do mestic letter postage. The sickly green cloud that overhung the entire country has suddenly disappeared, and the rosy glow of hope and cheerfulness bathes the turrets of every Post Office In tho land. There will be no difficulty in persuading tho Congress to appropriate tho one-third of one-thousandth of one cent which is the price of immunity from tho sickly green postage stamp.

It ts enough to ssj that from theotherend of the car you might hare read the shouting headlines and studied thsrulgar plctnrea in the sheet which tho middle-aged person of prosperous appearance held.

Three other men. also nearly opposite the uncon scious reader, regarded him steadily with looks which expressed astonishment not unmlngled with contempt.

People further down the car be gan to look up from their Srss. Timeiri. Iribuntt, or llrraldt. It waa a good Illustration of the mysterious Influence which makes eye follow eye, for In less than three minutes everybody lu that car except the dlsgustrd woman was staring at the middle aged gentleman as Intently as he waa devouring his one cent's worth or fakes and filth. "A boy tittered and the middle-aged person looked up. He understood the situation Immediately, for I never saw a quicker or desper flush of self conscious ness and shame. He turned at once to one of the ad vertising pages of hit precious possession, ran hi finger ostentatiously down a column aa If he had bought the thing only for an occasions! and special purpose, aud, having performed this patt-etlc lutlo farce, crumpled the paper up and thrust It upon tho seat lKhlnd him, nnd pretended to Lccoinc Interested In tbo panorama of llrosdway.

X, K. "Ntw Vorx, Sept 10." Wo should say that, theoretically, a man has tho samo right to read In public tho journal which suits his tastes as ho has to wear the stylo of hat which ho may think befits his personal dignity. Nevertheless, just as there Is In public opinion some tyranny In regard to hats, bo tbore Is a sort of moral and social compulsion, apart from all question of legal rights, concerning the newspapers which ho may display In tho presence of others. If he desires to secure or retain the respect and esteem of the people around htm. Tho reason for this Is obvious. The news paper displayed In public Is a part of the apparel of tho man who holds it; and even more than the style of his hatortliequality of his linen Is It aa Index which affords to chanco neighbors nnd observers a key tu his character, Intelligence, tastes and hab its. Justly or unjustly, the citizen who publicly announces his preference for tho sort of literature 'dispensed by Pumtzeh and his younger Imitators, will bo judged, at least by strangers, to bo Pulltzoroan himself, and he will suffer accordingly In the estimation of all those in whose pres ence he displays that badge. One cent Is not all that n purchaser pays for the privilege of reading in public tho JVif York World and similar publlca tlons. Ho becomes a marked man. Ho Is Judged by tho company he keeps. Tbo greater tho contrast between his general appearanco and his self-declared taste In tho selection of a newspaper to read, tho more attention ho Is likely to attract to himself when detected and observed in public holding In his hands and under his eyes the smudgy Instrument and evidence of his own degradation, A person may care nothing for nil that, and may brave the verdict of thsie around him for tho sake of tho Intellectual satis faction ho derives from communings with a Puxikkk or a pupil of Pulitzer; that Is his own business. In public ho is a marked man, all the samo. These general principles account suffi ciently for tho lncldont which our corre spondent relates in tho foregoing letter. Without knowing more of the caso than what ho tolls us, wo aro Inclined to bcllovo that the middle-aged man in tho Broadway car was not a hardened purchaser, and, moreover, that he will never becomo such. Turkey and Greece Tho conclusion of peace between Turkey and Greece comes nono too soon for both countries. For Grecco tho future never looked darker. Her national Independence has passed away with tho control of her finances, which aro now in foreign and un friendly hands. Sho still remains a geo graphical entity, and tho chief of tho political stato is called a King, but to all Intents and purposes Grecro has no more title to tho appellation of an independent Stato than ono of tho mediatized nativo States of India or Egypt or Zanzibar. It Is bootless now to discuss where tho re sponsibility for this disaster really lies. What la clear through tho mist surround ing tho tragedy of tho fall of Greek liberty, is tho success of tho occult con spiracy against tho freedom and Independ ence, of nationalities, working by financial methods. Tho peaco Just concluded could as easily havo been mado three, months ago, and tho fields of Thcssaly that will now Ho untitled for another six months might already bo showing tho promise of an early harvest next year, whilo tho thousands of sturdy Turkish peasants that aro perish ing of disease in tho camps of northern Greece and elsewhere might have been re stored to their Anatolian homes, where thoy would havo been contributing to In stead of aiding In tho depletion of their own resources. The rectification of fron tier, for which tho Sultan stood out with his usual stubbornness, will under the cir cumstances be of as little gain to Tur key, as It will be a loss to Greece. The same finger that traced the frontier of 1881 can bo without difficulty discerned in the new lino of 1807. Tho solicitude displayed by Austria for the few thousand Roumanian speaking shepherds lu northern Thessaly and Eplrus scattered among tho Greek In habitants of those countries has been again manifested In tho retrocession of two Koutzo-Vlach villages, as we are told, north of the Salamvrla River to Turkey. The result Is practically to make the course of the Salamvrla below Larlssa the northern boundary of Greece, or, in other words, to leave Grcecj without a military frontier on that slile, and open to the descent of an army which next time will not be Turkish. As for Sultan Abdul Hamid IL, he has yet to reap the harvest which his blind sub servience to foreign Influence has prepared. The sudden loyalty of Bulgaria will be no compensation to hira for the loss of strength he has Inflicted on Greece, and for the wastr. of his own resources in doing it, and his hurry to bring about the conclusion of peace seems to denote his tardy perception of tho In... W l. . .1 . t- f A n.. iitti. isiuur utwiKtrra lurenien uim, too. ino financial condition of the Ottoman Em pire Is going steadily from bad to worse, and the grip of the financiers, German nnd others, on every availablo resource of Turkey Is becoming tighter every day. At tho rate at which things are progressing, the time when the Sultan will be entered in the same category as tho Egyptian Khedive and tho Greek King, is not far off, and, on the whole, it would ap pear to be the best thing that could happen for the people of Turkey, whether Chris tians or Mussulmans. At the present mo ment the economic condition of tho latter is nearly as bad as that of the former, with the added evil that they may bo called on at any moment to shed their blood in defence of on unworthy ruler. The Bottom of It. The depth of sincerity and understand ing beneath the Citizens' Union Ixw move ment was indicated by a resolution adopted by the little conglomeration of Mugwumps known as the Brooklyn Young Republican Club at their meeting on Thursday night: " i:e$olint. That Ssrrn Low Is the choice of this club for Mayor of Greater Xew York, recognising In him the l-M exponent of the principle of tilts club that national and Mate politics have no proper place In municipal affairs." This Inspired resolve was token two days after Mr. Low, In accepting tho Citizens' Vulou "nou partisan," "inunlclpul issues only " nomination, had declared himself to bo a Republican, and had built a platform for himself almost wholly of State Issues. The Low movement seems to bo founded mainly on buncombe and childishness. The little gang of Republican conspira tors who went into tho Low movement In tho hopo of breaking up tho Ilermbllcnn organiza tion have bad no more success than thoy had In their similar conspiracy of last year " to Ret oven with I'latt" by turning over the Stato to tho Democrats. In both instances they chose a tlmo of too serious politics for tholr spiteful Kniucs. Their popguns do not aiall naainst heavy artillery. Tho great "national silver campmeetlng" at SvrlngtU'td, O., had been advertised pertina ciously. It was to bo an Inimento reunion of tho Ilryaiiltes. Tremendous crowds wero looked for. Some of tho Springfield Democrats wero a llttlo afraid that there would not be provisions enough to feed tho multitude. Wednesday wns tho first dny of tho meeting. Sovcn hundred persons were present. "The leaders thawed tho railroads with trying to keep people away." U is curious that railroads should bo anxious not to carry passongcra, but corporations are queer as well as malicious.

ThcTammauy theory Is that a union with the gold Democrats assures it against a Bryan Ito ro ult of any importance, bocauso the money of tho gold Democrats will enable it to buy off tho Bryanito insurrection. It will bo Interest ing to tec bow tho theory works In tbo campaign. A word of affectionate remonstrance must bo addressed to Col. Sellers of Michigan, founder and solo proprietor of the American party. It appears from a Dallas dospatch to the St. Aouis aiobe Democrat, that ho "has boon carrying on corrospondenco with several Texnns who aro illisntisllcil with tho old parties." As these Texan correspondents aro Populists at present, It was unnecessary to say that they are dissatisfied. Col. bEiXEUs will mate a mistake if ho allows them to carry out their purposo of joining him and hold ing a Stato convention. He baa a compact, harmoalous, wcU-dUclplincd party, consisting of himself. Ue is Its absolute master. Ho has given It as large and varied a collection of principles as any party can desire. If ho ad mits new members, they will outvote him and destroy his monopoly. As a one-man party tho American party Is not without charm. If Col. Sellers lets those dissatisfied Toxans in. his party will bo only a onc-horso party. A story has been started that tho non. Alton B. Pabkkr, tho hoad of tho Now York Democratic stato ticket, standing upon tho vel vet which conceals tboChlcngo platform, slyly voted for Bnv.x a year ago whllo posing as a stalwart defender of honest monor. This would make Mr. 1'AHKKn a pair with Mr. Low, who is said to have voted tor Blaine after giving his friends to understand that ho was a Mugwump like themselves. Votes put In secretly In this way os political capital for tho future aro not likely to turn out very profitable Investments. Mr. HEnnnrtT W. Wolcott, a Repub lican candldato for Stato Senator In Clovolnnd, Beams to havo some able notions about prop erty, notions that aro moro common among Democrats than Republicans. In a speech be fore a Republican club "ho snoko favorably of an Inheritance tax, a slnglo tax, or any other kind of a tax that will limit cor porations and bring about a moro equal distribution of property. A man's posses sions ounht to depend upon his mental and moral worth, and not upon his birth." Talk about slnglo taxes, double taxes, inheri tance taxes, and corporation taxes is considera bly more common than air, but Mr. Wolcott's proposition to make the right to hold property dependont upon mental and moral qualifications Is interesting. If ho la elected to the Ohio Sen ate ho ouirht to introduce & bill nrovidinu1 for the appointment of a Stato Commission for tbo Mental and Moral Examination of Property Holders and all other citizens. The property of all property holders who fall to pass a satis factory examination to escheat to the State, and by it to bo conveyed to non-property holders with a mental and moral average of moro than ninety-five ncr cent. As tho old Latin saw of Dioxybius Cato, or somebody elso ears. In Sir Lewis Monius's version: Oalcs and JcsTtxtas give a bank account. Oat the luckless scholar has shank's mar for mount." Mr. Wolcott's plan may give not only tho poor scholar but tbo poor unlettered man of moral wi.rth a chance. Still, It must bo remem be red that the abominable I lutocrats are pretty clever fellows. They might buy the examina tion papers or even pass on their merltc Tho Low boom seems to be magnificently atrone la somo parts of Cambridge. Mass.; Boa ton, Mass.; Hartford, Conn. ; Waterbury.Conn.. and MooduB, Conn. The students and faculty of the Pantococcygian University at Devil's Lako have passed resolutions Indorsing the can didacy of Mr. Low. The Hon. Phyxxe Coxe of Good Government Club C " Is confident that the boom will strike New York beforo many months." Oar heart bleeds for TnE Sex. A sinister effort Is being made In W aahinzton to reinstate the " sickly green" posfag stamp. We do not sre but Tur Bex will be comtwlled to let up a Uttla on Scth Low. iprinafltld ittpubltcan. Don't yon know that the project of reviving the sickly green two-cent postage stamp is dead already t No sooner did it show Itself than tho heel of honest indignation canio down upon It ker-plump, and lta promoters quickly found a reason for abandoning it altogether. There will be no sickly green two-cent stamp; and Tun Sux can proceed to trample out other and larger nuisances of tho same sickly green hue. The Democratic State Committee forgot to mention the party emblem which It wishes placed on the official ballot, and it may be neces sary to call another meeting of the committee.

PAllTZSAXSillP A XI) THE CUAltTEIt. Ttae Dlatlnel neruo-utilon or Partisan Politic by the Cuiuiulsstonera. Yum the Comtnr rcta! Adrtrttur. The Greater Xew York Charter Commission, In Its report to the Legislature last winter, urged earnestly tbeadoitlonofarouttltutlonal amendment provid ing for " minority or proportionate representation In municipal elections." It had In view, aa It explicitly stated, the comieltlon of the proposed Municipal Assembly, and lu the course of lt& argument on this point It used the following language: Such representation Is equally desirable, whether the basis of tliviaion In municipal elections bo polit ical or non lllK-al. Bo far, both In the hlator of Oroat Ktltain aud of this country, the complete ex clusion of politics from municipal ele tlons has been found Impowlble. Many hope mat In the future It may not be so But If uch expectatloni bo rea'lzcd some basis of dlvtilon on local laauea will still exist ' It Is Impossible lo mlatako the meaning of this paragraph. The Charter CouimtMiancrs here state distinctly that the exclusion of partisan politics from municipal elections Is out of the qurst.on for the present, and their object Is not to attempt to Ignore panlian politics, but to utilise It to what they deem the Lest advantage by giving all sides reprocntatlou. That partisan politics Is Intruded Is apparent from the uso of the term "non political" tu,contrat with "political" an I by thJ reference to "local" lsiucs. The Commissioners go further. They assert spo.-lil. eally that minority or proportionate representation, based upon partlian politic, li "desirable," and tho only reason why such a provUlonnai not embodied In tho charter U that it would havo 1h-u of un certain constllutiouallty." Again, apcaklugof their decision against electing "some members of tho Jtuu'clpal Assembly at Urge, and for a gradual re tirement of tho members of one or Loth houses," tho Commlisloncrs say; Tint In Oreator New York, whore the political alililou of the clllteut is so one sided. oitioni wholly at lorge for the SIunk-lpM AswinMy would 4 likely to mean.

A Wan In Ballvla Telia What It Xeede ! n. vlsornte It. To THE Enrron or The Sox Slrt Ihavo read with much Interest commonts in The SfX on an nrtlclo by Thomns A. Eddy of New York, upon tho commercial lntcreouro Iwtwccn tho United States and tho South American repub lics. Mr. Kddy advances omo common sense vlows as to American enterprise In the South American countries, especially regardln Uio need of nn American International bank. Within the last ycarot bo sovcral Individuals havo como to Potosl with tbo avowed purposo of studying tho resources of Bolivia and in forming themselves as to what trado could bo expected between this country and the I'nlted States. But, as a rule, such Investigations havo been of tho most snpcrflclal and hasty nature. A visit of a day or a week Is entirely inadequate. As an American for many years resident here, 1 am In n position to assert that Information of real vahtocanbo obtained only by making tbo jwrsonal acqunlntanco of tho leading business men, and by visiting tho vari ous business centres. Amorlcan merchants whoarc discussing commercial competition with England and Germany In tbo Interior of South America seem not to comprehend thst If thoy want n slmro of this trado thoy must socuro it by the ndoption of means similar to thoso which havo already brought It tinder tho control of Europeans. Americans may talk ns ther plente. but thcro Is a much morn effertlvo method In the commercial cntcrprlso back of goods "made In Germany." N'ow, what are tho methods ncrcyary! Tho first Is tho establishment of cheap freight rntes from tho principal ports of tho 1 nltol Stntcs to tho South American ports. Cotton goods from New Vork tn Bolivia have been nhlppcd via Liverpool or Ilnnibunr, nnd therieo to our ports of entry, moro cheaply than thrv could bo thinned directly br way of Panama. Of Into this has been remedied Inn measure by an American lino of steamers, but the freight rates charged by this line I havo not been able to ascertain, nor arc they published In any news paper In circulation here. Tho rate per ton from Snn Fmnclsro tn any point south of Pan amatis from i?:n) American gold tip. according to distance. From Liverpool to Anlofagastn (ono of the principal ports of entry for Bolivlal. on tho other hand, the chargo is only 30 shillings per ton To open trado with the United Btatcs It Is In dlspensoblo lo establish a line of American steamers from Panama down the west coast nf South America, to meet the other lines lhat como around through tho Straits of Magellan, and to brirg goods from New York or San Fran cisco at the same rates charged from Liver pool or llnmbursr. It is pasy to understand that tho local trndera here buy their goods where they cost the least, and that there can bo no special Inducement for them to go to tho United States when it costs more than to buy In Europe, . . Again, mail facilities are a very Important adjunct of commercial Intercourse. A few dnvs ago I received from San Francisco a letter which had been Just two months on tho war. letters from London or Pnris uetially reach T'otosl in thirty-two or 'hlrty-threc days. New York newspapers frequently come in after ac cumulating for a month somewhere on tbo journey, and an inquiry at tho Pot Oraco re veals no patlsfartory reason for the delay. A friend wrote me not long since from etr York: "fcend mc all you can of tin." Ac. My answer was: "Tin la nbundant in Bolivia, but most of the producers are under contract with nnrtles who furnish capital for working tho mine to forward the tin. as produced, at a stipulated price. This capital comes from Europe, and tin is one of the leadlntr articles shipped there to cover the value of English sterl ing drafts. It mnv bo said that, after sllver.tln is tho nexi moet valuable article of xport from Bolivia. To obtain a part of this business ono must either tret control of tho mines or como Into competition with tho capitalists who now control tho local market." It is not improb able that a considerable portion of tbo tin shipped from England nnd Germany to New Yorte is produced in Bolivia. The ready in ference is that money and banking facilities are needed. Diplomatic relations with the United States are carried on in a verv unsatisfactory wav. The Ministers como to La P.iz. but appear to meet with some insurmountable obstacle to a further advance toward Snrre. the capital and scat of government. In lfl Minister Adams came south and visited Oniro, Colquecbaca. lluancnnca, i'ot. ana .-ucre, oui i am not aware thst any Minister since his time has visited Sucre. Not long ince a letter waa written to Minlter Moonlight, asking if a Con sul could not be appointed for Potosi. His answer was- "Our Government refues to ap point any Consul except the one at La Pax." The Consul at La Paz is probably needed there to as'Ut the Minister in his nrdunus duties. Spain. France. Argentina, and Peru have Con suls in Potosi. and I believe there Is a German Consul In Oruro. England, as is well known. 1ms no dlplomatie relations with Bolivia, but the pounds, shillings, and pence make up for a great deal of what a Minister might do. I sincerelv hope that the points upon which I have touched will be further discussed. SaXti ago Pascoe. Potosi, Bolivia. July 11. Tne Orlaipal Css-Gss.
