The OtMtaMtt Platform?How IS Will
Affeet the Candidates.
It la a great point -in a political canvass to
have the platform and the candidate match
eaeh other. The Cincinnati platform was
adopted before it was known who would be
the candidate, and it is, unfortunately, con
structed to help Blaine rather than Hayes.
That part of it which the Convention greeted
with the most enthusiastic applause was the
plank on the school question, which would
have been a great card for Blaine but cannot
help Hayes. When Hayes was nomi
nated for Governor of Ohio his prin
cipal competitor was Judge Taft, now
Attorney General of the United States, and
the sole reason why Taft was rejected and
Hayes taken lay in the fact that Taft
had made himself obnoxious to the
Catholics of Ohio by his course on
tha school question, while Hayes had
stood aloof. Hayes was nominated be
cause he had not affronted the Catholic
sentiment of Ohio. The school plank of
the Cinoinnati platform, while it would
have strengthened Blaine, who is a member
of the secret Order opposed to the Catholics,
will weaken Hayes, who was nominated for
his present office because he had done
nothing to offend the Catholics. This
part of the Cincinnati platform is out
of harmony with the Cincinnati candi
date. Had it been foreseen that Governor
Hayes would be the nominee this plank
would not have been framed into the plat
form. It would have strengthened Blaine,
but it weakens Hayes as being in contradic
tion to his record.
The currency declaration of the plat
form will also weaken Hayes instead
of strengthening him. In his contest
with Governor Allen last fall the elec
tion turned on the merits of the act of
Congress requiring a resumption of specie
payments in 1879. Every speaker on the
Hayes side defended and eulogized that act;
every speaker on the Allen side made that act
the chief topic of denunciation, and, in the
later stages of the canvass, the democrats
rested their whole claim to indorsement on
their opposition to the forced resumption
for which that law provides. But the Cin
cinnati platform surrenders all the ground
on which Governor Hayes stood in
the Ohio election last October. Instead of
insisting on resumption in 1879 the Cincin
nati platform retreats behind a vague asser
tion that specie payments ought to be re
sumed "at the earliest practicable period,"
treating the question precisely as if the
act of 1875 had not boen passed, and
as if the republican party had not
bound itself by a solemn Congressional
pledge to resume at a definite, specified date.
This is the Allen platform, and not the
Hayes platform, of last year. It relinquishes
(he great advantage which Governor Hayes
might have had from his signal triumph over
Allan last year. It shifts the republican
canvass to the Allen ground, and virtually
withdraws the currency as a Presidential
issue. A party whioh thus refuses to stand
by its own colors and to maintain its own
legislation cannot expect the confidence of
the advocates of hard money.

While the law and society respect the

The Imperial party left Saratoga this morning by
special train at seven o'clock. Intending to proceed
directly to Poughkeepsle. Owing to the disinclina
tion of the Hudson River Hallway to pass the
Pullman cars over their road their Majesties
were detained for nearly an hour at
the Albany depot. The reason alleged
was that the Pullman cars could not puss under the
the bridges of the line, but the conductor stead
fastly asserted that the car occupied by the Em
peror had been over the road and would pass freely
If the Hudson River people would consent to send
It. They, however, refused to make the experiment,
and the Imperial party was compelled to cliaugc
cars at considerable Inconvenience. Ills Majesty
treated the matter lightly, but the members of the
suite expressed themselves very freely on the want
of courtesy shown by the Hudson River company.
On the arrival of the Imperial party at Pough
keepsie carriages were in waiting, and they were
driven directly to Vassar College. By the time that
interesting Institution was reached It was noon, and
the classes had all been dismissed, so that their
Majesties saw the Institution undervcry unfavorable
circumstances. Professor Raymond showed His
Majesty through the building, while the lady
professors took charge of the Empress. The
working of the different departments was
explained to the Emperor by the Professor
having charge of them. He was particularly inter
ested iu the chemical and physical departments,
which he examined with minute care. Learning
that there was a large l.atln and Greek class he
wished to hear the young ladies recite. In accord
ance with this expressed wish the claw was assem
bled and Ills Majesty had an opportunity to listen to
a number of young ladies reading "Plautus" in a
most creditable manner. His Majesty a*ked the
students several questions, through the Professor,
In order to Judge how thoroughly the students
were acquainted with their subject, and the answers
In every case were satisfactory.
After a short visit to the museum, where there
is a well chosen collection, His Majesty ascended to
the observatory, where ho had an interesting inter
view with Mrs. Professor Mitchell. His Majesty was
very well pleased with all lie saw, but thought that,
in some respects, the Wellesley College, near Bos
ton, was better arranged than Vassar, though not so
complete In oil its departments.
Crossing over to West Point His Majesty, accom
panied by Vice Admiral de Lomane, rather surprised
the occupants of the old fort. General Ruger, how
ever, was not to be discomfited, and welcomed His
Majesty cordially to West Point. The Emperor
made his flrst visit to the Observatory, which is not
lti flrst class order. Having learned that the fag
end of the students were undergoing their exam
ination in mathematics Ills Majesty expressed a
wish to witness the examination. General Ruger
having Introduced His Majesty to the members of
the Examining Board, His Majesty took a seat close
to the studeuts and listened with attention to the
questions propounded by Professor Church to one of
the students, who auswered very creditably. The
Museum of Arms, the Gymnasium and the cadets'
quarters were visited In succession. His Majesty hav
ing expressed a wish to sec the monument erected to
Kosciusko and the grave of General Scott, the General
entered his carriage and accompanied the Emperor
to the hallowed spots. His Majesty culled a numlier
of wild flowers In the enclosure of the Kosciusko
monument, saying ho knew several Poles to whom
he would send theso flowers, and so make them
happy. On the return of the party from their pil
grimage to the graves of the departed soldiers the
cadets were drawn up In line, dressed in their neat
gray Jackets and white pants. General Ruger had
ordered a parade and Infantry drill for the
benefit of the Emperor. The presence In the ranks'
of the seventy new cadets seemed to give the Gen
eral Rome uneasiness lest tliey should impair the
steadiness of the command while executing the
manoeuvres; but tills fear proved groundless, an the
marching past was very steady, and the evolutions,
though simple, were executed with spirit and pre
cision, under the command of General Nell. Ilia
Majesty was much struck by the splen
did physique of the cadets, nnd Admiral Lomane
several times spoke of them with admiration. The
Emperor, however, does not think that West Point
Is as well mounted as Annapolis, frhere the system
and appointments are wellnlgh pcrfect. On the
conclusion of the parade His Majesty thanked the
officers and took his leave. General Ruger and
Professor de Janon accompanied the Imperial party
to the landing place, and in parting the Emperor
again thanked him warmly for the attentions he had
The Imperial party arrived ln'thls city about half
past seven, and were Immediately driven to their
quarters In the Windsor Hotel. Notwithstanding
the fatigues of the day their Mqjesties went to the
Fifth Avenue Theatre to witness the, performance
of "Pique." The audience at first did not recognize
their Majesties; but when the Brazilian national air
was played and their Majesties rose to their feet
the audience recognized the distinguished visitors
and warmly welcomed them.
Their Majesties leave for Newport by the morning

Tbe correspondence laid before the Senate to-day,

resolution of the 26th of April last, In relation to tho
claims upon which Judgments have been rendored, or
that mny now be poudlug, before the Court of tho Com
missioners on tho Alabama Cliums, arising from the,
capture ol the rebel cruiser Sbonundouh, consists ol a
letter of W. f'enn Clarke, dated Washington, D. 0.,
Fobruary 11, 1H70, offering to tbe government, for such
a consideration as may be agreed upon, tho original log
book of tho proceedings ou board the rebel cruiser She

the dates of tho captures cf certain American vessels,
together with tbe appralsoinentsofsomo Kilrty of those
vessels and thoir cargoes, inado at tho time of ityeir
capturo by certuin officers ot Baid cruiser. Those ap
praisements wore raado with a view to priso money,
In case ot the success ot the Confederacy. Mr. Clarke
says a comparison of some of the awards made by life
Court of the Commissioners of tho Alabama Claims, in
tbe cases of many of tnoso captured American vet*
si Is, with the appraisement of their value at tbe tim?
of capture, will demonstrate tnat tho awards aro un
reasonably high, so much so as to lead to the conclu
sion that grave Injustice has boeu dono to tbe govern

reduced If the cases are reopened and robeard on the
new testimony offored.
Mr. Fish says, in reply, that be has carefully con
sidered tho suggestions embraced in tbe communica
tion, and, whatever tho results which might be antici
pated from their adoption, does not conceive that the
Stale Department can properly take any steps in rela

of a purely Judicial character and aro within the Juris
