Its exposure to liquor smuggling on all sides Is explained by our Special Commis sioner, rho also gives interesting facts about her immense crops of barley and grapes. rFEOM OUE sixcial commissioner.) Erie, February 20. An inter-State jug line, with a stop-over at Erie city for a change of jugs, is one of the encouraging commercial possibilities of prohibition in Pennsylvania. Some person1! here who doubt the future efficacy of a Constitutional amendment, fear that if it is adopted on June 18, such a crockery line would be surveyed figuratively speaking on the morning of the 19th mst That a line of this description would not be altogether imaginary, people acquainted with the geography of Northwestern Penn sylvania must admit. Laying it out on paper now makes it look perfectly feasible. It seems to be a popular amusement to put in the time this wayin Erie when frozen in by a lake blizzard. Taking down the map of the State, the jug-line builder will show you that of the four corners of Pennsyl vania, the one in Erie county would be most exposed to whisky smuggling if prohi bition becomes law. A barrier of moun tains protects Greene county more or less from "West Virginia's lawlessness; the Dela ware Bay separates the county of that name in this State from New Jersey; and far in the north, "Wayne county has only New York to contend with. SUBKOUJfDED BY DEVILS. But Erie county will have three tempters. New York will offer her whisky, Ohio will send her beer, and Canada might ship both liquors 40 miles across the lake to her har bor. Under those circumstances it might be hard for Erie to keep sober, even if she did want to obey the State Constitution. I mutilated one of these maps in order to get that portion showing Erie county's outline. Here it is: .ERIE COU2fTT'S rOSITICKJ- BOUNDED ON THE EAST BY KETT YORK, ON THE "WXST BY OHIO, AND ON THE NORTH BY THE LAKE. HER DILESIMA. Erie county jutting far northward beyond the straight boundary line of the State, and being in the extreme northwest corner, has a peculiar and unprotected position. New York forms its southwest corner deep in Erie county forests, and Ohio's hill's could be brought within the same range of view by a powerful glass. Lake Erie chops the county off diagonally, and skirting the lake shore, grand trunk railroads use Erie coun ty for a near cross-cut of less than 50 miles between New York and Ohio. Erie City is very nearly in the center of this cross-cut, and on much the same route would this jug line be surveyed between New York and Ohio. Although this geographical difficulty in the wav of enforcement of the amendment is the objection of a considerable number of people to adopting any other than high li cense laws, it could hardly be called one of the principal factors in the campaign. Other questions seem to have equal weight in deciding the issue. The county promises to be one of tbe battle-fields in Western Pennsylvania in June. A victory will not be won easily by either side, and with such a hard-fought battle it will be a pity that the victors, be they liquor men or prohibi tionists, will have so little majority that it will have but little part in a grand aggregate of majorities in the State at large. Every phase of the situation here appears to be full of contradictions. It is in this way that the uncertainty of the conflict be comes apparent. There are some astute politicians in Erie, but I could not find one who was competent to forecast the result A count of the votes alone will determine that, A CONTRADICTORY HISTORY. Even the history of the county on prohi bition is a series of contradictions. Just now the impression is general throughout the State that Erie county will vote against the amendment Many of her own resi dents believe she will, yet here is what Benjamin "Whitman, one of the ablest and most unbiased thinkers in town, tells me: In 1847 when the question of license or no license was before the people of Erie county, they gave 2,714 votes for licence and 2,183 against In 1851 when the adoption of the Maine law was voted on in this State. Erie county voted 2.767 for the law and only L501 aramst. In 1S73 in the local option election the county I voted against license cy on majority, in mat campaign Erie city stood 2,017 lor license and K)6 against Corry, our next largest town, 'toted 5bG for license and 319 against The country districts gave 2,820 against license and 1,708 for. In a general way, therefore, I should say that in this election the conuty, outside of the cities of Erie and Corry, will vote for the amend ment, proably by a considerable majority. The two cities will vote against it by a considerable majority. I do not know how much the rural lote has Increased since the local option fight to say whether the townships and boroughs will be able to outvote the cities or not The population ot Erie City has increased very much since the Jpcal option fight Even in 1880 it had grown to 27,737, and now it is estimated to be 37,000. The coun ty's population is between 80.000 and 90,000. BARLEY AND GRAPES. The contradictions also extend to the agricultural vote in Erie county. The past shows that it has, like the granger vote else- where, been cast on the side of prohibition. Yet it has here some peculiarities, found no where else in the State. Along the shore of Lake Erie is a climate and soil that are un rivalled for the production of grapes and barley. The vineyards so iamous up along the lake front of New York State begin in Erie county and skirt the lake in Pennsyl vania from Harbor creek to the town of North East. Tons of grapes are shipped every summer from this region to Buffalo, New" York and Chicago. There they enter the domestic markets, but the finest are pressed into wine at a factory in North East. The barley belt lies back from the vine yards, but in no place does it lie farther than ten miles back from the lake shore. From 1,400 bushels in 1841 the barley crop of Erie county has increased now to nearly 400,000 bushels annually; and where, in 1841, the whole barley crop went begging at 31 cents per bushel, it now readily brings 78 and 80 cents per bushel. It is known all over the United States as the best, and from their barley crop the farmers of Erie county realize 300,000 every year. Four large breweries in Erie deal with thee farmers, and much of the crop of bar ley goes into 'liquor production elsewhere. Yet I find it to be a fact that perhaps half of the bailey and grape growers are Consti tutional amendment aanerenis, ana wui vote for it. "Why, up in the neighborhood of North East, where the wine presses are, the niaiontv of the neonle sign remon strances against licenses being granted for the sale of liquor. But the number or votes influenced in June by the barley and grape culture will affect the result some. DEMOCRATS REVENGEFUL. Even the political side issues are mixed up in Erie. I met more Democrats here who will rote for the amendmpnt than Re publicans. A Democratic journalist said to me: I wonld not be surprised to see Eric county give a small majority for tbe amendment. A great many Democrats feel sore over the treat ment the have had hero at the hands of the liquor interests. Tbey bave been compelled to bear the odium of being the friends of whisky men, yet tbey bave been slaughtered by tho same liquor men. It is much tbe same feeling that prevails all over tbe country am one Dem ocrats, that the liquor vote, which elect ed HM in New York defeated Cleveland for President. This feel ing bas been intensified in this State by tbe knowledge of tbe Philadelphia brewers' $100.000 contribution to Matt Quay's campaign fund to elect Harrison. Aside from political questions, I believe tbe vote in Erie's country districts will offset tbe liquor majority in Erie and Corry cities. A Democratic physician said: Tbe municipal elections in Erie city yester day will have mucn to do with the Constitu tional amendment in June. If it is found that tbe liquor men cut the Democratic candidates. Constitutional amendment will be adopted by Eric county. In any event 40 per cent of tbe .Democrats in .tne county wm vote lor proniDi tion and if the liquor men are found to bavo voted with Republicans in the local elections, 60 per cent of the Democratic vote will be cast against them in June. A E. Sisson, Esq., District Attorney, said: The result is uncertain, and for whoever wins, the majority will be very small. Fifty per cent of the Republicans 'Bill vote against the amendment in Erie city, and 25 per cent of tbcm in the country districts. Usuall the total vote of the townships and boroughs is greater than that in Erie city and Corry; but with tbe prospects of a light vote among farmers on ac count of June being their busy season and a liheral tendency among some of them, it promises to be very close this time. COKFLICimO INTERESTS. Out of 242 applications for liquor licenses now filed with tbe courts, at least 225 are for saloons and hotels in Erie city. There is a large German population here, and beer is a requisite among them. Lake sailors would probably take Cleveland or Buffalo in preference to Erie even in the smallest trade, if unable to get their rum here. The Brooks law has not been a success here, but a very few licenses having been refused since it went into operation. The county's lake front is a series of summer resorts familiar to Pittsburg'. "Would'nt it be pretty hard work to enforce prohibition with the Duquesne Greys ("Heavies") at Massassauga Point, the Johnny Robinson Rod and Gun Club in camp near Four Mile Creek, the Grove Hotel full of drummers off on a holiday, and the New Brighton Glass Makers in camp annually at Cascade Blufi? And what would the boys do when they run over to "Arie" for a day lrom the camps if there were no saloons there? Lastly, there seems to be no uncertainty in the methods of work adopted by the tem perance people. They have called a county convention for "Washington's Birthday, and when one of the Erie Herald's reporters asked for a copy of the call he got this an swer from one of the leaders: "I am not at liberty to give a list of the names on the calL There are nine names from the city of Corry and the list is beaded by Isaac Colcgrove, the ex-Mayor of tho city, and tho other names are equally prominent There are also nine names from North East and nine from Girard." "How do the city ministers stand in the mat ter of calling the convention?" "The city ministers are in .favor of the con vention, although I am informed that some of them think that high license is preferable to prohibition till there is a general prohibition in the United States." "Are the Catholic clergy interested in the call?" 'No, they are not Some of .those who are in terested in tne matter wanted to include the Catholic clergymen and send a committee to wait on them and get them to come as citizens, as we all are, and take part in the deliberations of the convention, but it was suggested that thev might refuse." "With whom did this movement start?" "We have been keeping it out of tbe hands of the fanatical element in tbe Woman's Christian Union and away from the active Pro hibitionists. We will get Mrs. Mary T. Lath rop, of Wisconsin, and that well-Known and talented lady will come here in April and give Erie county four nights. This time will be di vided between Erie, Corry, Miles Grove and Edinboro." Judge Gunnison, J. F. Downing, W. W. Eeed. T. F. Noble and W. W. "Wade re cently told reporters they believed the liquor men would carry the county, some of them predicting as high as 2,500 majority against the amendment L. E. Stofiel. THE WOOD STREET WRECK. ! Chief Blgelow Will Try to Dispose of the Debris To-Dny. The debris taken from the fallen buildings at the "Wood street disaster will be sold at public sale, on the Monongahela wharf, at 10 o'clock this morning. At the time of the wreck the mass of brick, wood and other debris was piled temporarily on the wharf. Chief Bigelow has repeatedly ordered the parties interested to remove the stuff, as in case of a big flood it would be very danger ous. The owners have paid no attention to his command and he will try and sell all the stuff. Tbe Yorktown All Rlcbt. Captain Steel, of Cramp & Sons, returned to the city last night The Captain had charge of the trial trip of the Yorkto wn, and he said the boat stood all the tests. The Government might condemn the Thurlow gun, but the Yorktown is all right HOW HE WAS SACKED. Bather Than Withdraw lord Sack ville Premier Salisbury Was WILLING TO SEE HIM DISMISSED. He Vigorously Protested That Private Epistles Should Have NOTHING TO DO WITH DIPLOMACY. Bayard Eeplied Warmly, Beading tho Eiot Act the British Tcer. President Cleveland has transmitted all of the official correspondence concerning the dismissal of Minister "West to Congress. Letters of Bayard to Sackville, Minister Phelps and Premier Salisbury are given. The latter at first intimated that the dis missal would be acceptable. Later he com mented on the action in somewhat forcible terms. Bayard replied in kind. "Washington, February 20. The Presi dent to-day sent to Congress all the corres pondence which has taken place between this Government and the Government of Great Britain in regard to the dismissal of Lord Sackville "West, as Minister of Great Britain to the United States. -The Presi dent's letter of transmittal is a purely formal communication. The corresDondence opens with a copy of the now famous Murchison letter and Lord Sackville's reply thereto. On October 25 Secretary Bayard, in a telegram, directed Minister Phelps to invite Lord Salisbury's attention to the Murchison letter, and to express the confident reliance of this Government upon the action of Her Majesty's Government in the matter. On the following day Secretary Bayard .tele graphed to Minister Phelps that Mr. "West's usefulness in this country was at an end; that a strong public sentiment had been aroused, and that Lord Salisbury should be permitted as speedily as possible to under stand, too, the necessity of immediate action. THE SALISBURY IDEA. Under date of October 28, Minister Phelps telegraphs to Secretary Bayard thai; Lord Salisbury declined to act until in receipt of the precipe language of Lord Sackville and his explanation. Lord Salisbury did not regard the Minister s letter alone as suffi cient to warrant his recall, thus ending his diplomatic career, which would not neces sarily be the case if he were dismissed by the Government of the United States, for which course there were precedents. Mr. Phelps states that there will be long delays with no decisive result if dependence is placed on tbe movement of the British Government, and advises that action be taken upon the intimation of Lord Salis bury. The correspondence then gives the report of Secretary Bayard to the Presi dent on the conductof Lord Sackville, here tofore published. Under date of October 30, Mr. Bayard wrote to Lord Sackville as follows: The President of the United States has In structed mo to inform you that for good and sufficient causes, which are known to yourself, and have been duly brought to the knowledge of your Government ho has with great regret become convinced that it would be incompati ble with tbe best interests and detrimental to the good relations of both Governments that you should any longer hold your present official position in the United States. BAYARD'S EDICT. Accordingly the Government of Her Brit annic Majesty will without delay be informed of this determination, in order that another channel may be established for the transmis sion of such communications as may be found desirable by the two Governments in the trans action of their business. Whenever it is your pleasure to depart irom tne unitea estates I am instructed to furnish you with tbe usual facili ties, and with that view I now beg leave to inclose a passport in the customary form. On the same day Lord Sackville replied to Mr. Bayard, acknowledging the receipt of his letter. Under date ot October 31, Secretary Bayard communicated to Minister Phelps, giving a statement of the Murchison correspondence, and says: Such an answer to such a letter can only be characterized as a gross breach of diplomatic privilege and decorum, and an unjustifiable -abuse of his Lordship's position here as tbe ac credited representative of a friendly power. He dangerously invaded the exclusive sovereignty of this country over its own citi zens and its affairs of the deepest moment On November 1 Lord Salisbury asked for more definite information in regard to what Minister "West has done, and says he cannot take action until he receives fuller particu lars. On December 5 Mr. Phelps forwarded to Secretary Bayard a copy of a note to Lord Salisbury in which he transmitted copies of the MurcLison correspondence and newspaper interviews. Mr. Phelps 6aid that both the correspondence and the inter view appeared to the Government of the United States to constitute a very grave and unprovoked affront by Lord Sackville "to the President and the Senate. NO ACTION BY ENGLAND. Lord Salisbury replied to Mr. Phelps, De cember 24, saying that he had referred the above mentioned letter to Lord Sackville. Lord Salisbury said: The action of the United States Government has rendered tbe copies of letters and inter views transmitted by Mr. Fhelps of no prac tical importance, as they were wanted to en able Her Majesty's Government to form a judgment on tbe complaint It is, of course open to any government on its own responsi bility, suddenly to terminate its diplomatic relations with any other State, or with any par ticular minister of any other State. But it has no claim to aemana tnat the other State shall make itself the instrument of that at proceeding is satisfied by or concur in it unless that State reasons, duly produced, of the justice of the grounds on which the demand is made. What view Her Majesty's Government would have taken of Lord Sackville's action If the President of the United States had laid before them "crave and weighty reasons" for his re moval, it would be superfluous now to consider. Private communications made by an ambassa dor in good faith have never, I believe, before been made the subject of international com plaints, and considerable doubt seems to rest upon the precise purport of the more public statements made by Lord Sackville to the newspaper reporters. But these were fair mat ters for examination and discussion, if anysuch discussion had been desired. It is sufficient under existing circumstances to say that thero was nothing in Lord Sackville's conduct to jus tify so striking a departure from the circum spect and deliberate procedure by which in in such cases it is the usage of friendly States to mark their consideration for each other. I will abstain! from comment upon tbe con siderations not of an international character. "Used Up," "Tired Out," "No Energy," and simi lar expressions, whenever heard, indi cate a lack of vital force, which, if not remedied in time, may lead to com plete physical and nervous prostration.

OUR VALIANT SECRETARY. The correspondence closes with a letter from Mr. Bayard to Mr. Phelps, dated Jan uary 30, 1889, acknowledging the receipt of the reply of the Marquis of Salisbury to Mr. Phelps" note in relation to the case of Lord Sackville. Secretary Bayard, in this letter, states fully the views of this Govern ment in respect to the grounds of Lord Sackville's dismissal. He quotes liberally from the Murchison letter, and sharply criticises the reply of Lord Sackville. He says: Tho correspondence not only constituted an unprecedented interference in our domestic politics, but it contained gross impugnments of tbe President's public action. Hence, had the objectionable conduct of Lord Sackville ended with his reply to the Murchison letter tho situ ation would have been sufficiently serious, but in various statements made by him to repre sentatives of the public press tbe impugnments of the action of this Government wore empha sized. The Secretary then proceeds to the con sideration oi tbe Marquis of Salisbury's note laying down the rule which, in his opinion, governs the dismissal of diplomatic agents, and says: The offense of Lord Sackville consisted In personal misconduct wholly inconsistent with his official duty and relations, of which no sug. gestion of approval by his Government has yet been intimated. SACKVILLE'S OFFENSE. Thus the present issue is not whether it is requisite that a sovereign power asking the recall of a foreign Minister should give the rea sons for the application, but whether when, as in the present case, such recall has been asked on the ground of interference in the politics of tho country to which he is accredited, the ques tion of tho culpability or degree of such inter ference is to be left not to the decision of tbe offended sovereign, but to tho determination of the sovereign by whom tho offending Minis ter was accredited. An envoy is intended to be a confidentially intermediary between the governments profes sing friendly relations, and reliance upon his good faith is the best assurance of continued amity and cood understanding will be found. It cannot, therefore, be Justly regarded as a caue of international offense to request the recall of an envoy whenever His discovered that his conduct has been such as to unsettle the confidence of the receiving government nor for that government to dismiss him when ever in its judgment circumstances have arisen, owing to his misconduct, which endanger its own safety and welfare, or tend to jeopardize the good relations of the two governments.
