PRZCE-tl.OO A YEAS,
POIHT PLEASANT, WE8T VIBGINIA
JUNK 13, 1894,
The McKlnlej Panic.
Senator Mills insists that the Mc
Kinley panic was dno before 1893;
bat in 1890 the Lord sent as crops
of corn and cotton that were worth
far mors than the crops of 1889. Io
1891 the crops were 600 to 800 mil
lion dollars more valuable tban tbe
crops of 1890. The crop of 1892
was worth $200,000,000 less than
the crop of 1891. The crop of 1893
was worth 9600,000,000 less tban
the crop of 1892. When tbe con
ditions were ripe for tbe culmina
tion of tbe plan of "Protection for
the sake of Protection" raw sugar
was pat on the free list, tbe Sugar
Trust was given $20,000,000 worth
of "protection" annually and the
?agar plan tersflO,000,000 of bounty,
and the /Treasury was thrust so
deep in tbe mire of a losing silver
speculation as to shake the credit of
the Government. All this is his
tory. Tbe Democratic party came
into power just at tho critical mo
ment of tbe break-down of Repub
lican policies; and the attempt has
been made to put upon tbe Demo
cratic Administration the responsi
bility for disaster which it bad no
share in causing. The repeal of tbe
Silver Purchase act restored confi
dence in financial circles.' The
prospect of good crops this year has
given farther eacoaragement to de
spondent business interests. Noth
ing more remains to be done to re
store to the country a fall measure
of prosperity except to end tbe un
certainty of oar revenue legislation
and establish the Government's
ability to cope with necessary ex
penditure by the passage of tbe
Tariff bill. Every day lost is a
waste of business opportunity and
of political opportunity.
Republican press has set out upon
a lino of argument which will take
it all summer to bring to a cogent
conclusion. It is trying to shoulder
Coxeyism upon the Demacratic
party. Lord! The mission of the
Democratic party has always been
to gi*e every man an opportunity
to take care of himself. It believes
that when every man has a fair
opportunity he can take care of
himself, and that that Government
is best which governs least. This
is precisely the opposite of the "gen
eral welfare" ideas of the parties
which have opposed Democracy
from thetimaof the Adamses down
to Coxey. They insist that it is
the duty, in one way or another of
the Government to protect every
body. This is the idea that fills the
addled brains of Coxey and his fol
lowers. They are marching to
Washington for protection. Let
the Republican press look after its
rery own. Don't try to push these
deluded fellows out of their place
in the protective ranks.
The Republican party is split on
every question before the people,
and never can be united on either
the tariff or silver. The tariff ques
tion will be virtually settled before
congress adjourns for the next few
years, and the silver question will
necessarily come to the front.
Many Republican statesmen and
newspapers are turning their faces
toward free coinage of silver. The
West and South have united regard
less of party to end the tariff tight
in order that silver may be pushed
the front, and the Republican
liticianb eee that the West and
nth will elect the next President.
The people are awakening to the
realization that thd Cast and Eog*
land have controlled the comracr
cial and financial policy of the
country long enough. They will
assert their prerogative by electing
a President whose policy will be in
harmony with the best interests of
the whole country.?Portsmouth
Whatever else may be said of the
Senate tariff bill, and it is not the
best in some respects, the sectional
charge that it has been framed in
the interests of the South is utterly
without warrant. No other refuta
tion of that false charge is needed
than the sugar schedule, which pro
poses to repeal the bounty of two
cents a pound on raw sugar and put
on it a revenue duty of one cent a
pound. Lumber, which is another
important Southern product, has
been put on the free list, in spite of
the protests of some representatives
of that region. The alarmists of
sectionalism take especial care to
avoid comparisons between the
McKinley tariff and the duties pro
posed in t'je Senate bill. But South
ern products have not been favored
at the expense of other interest of
thecoantry. If the duty on rice bo
still to high, it is lower, much low
er, than the rate in the McKinley
tariff, and the f ram era of that act
cannot be accused of partiality to
ward the South.

There was a great anti-income
tax meeting in.New York city, June
1. It is estimated that thero were
present representatives of $500,000,

natiopal taxation, and which will
remain exempt until we have an in
corne tax. The meeting was enthu
siastically opposed to this "war
measure," that belongs only to effete
monarchies which believe in taxing
the rich as well as the poor.

London, Jnue 12.?The news of the
dispatch of a French fleet to Morocco
and of the preparations being male to
enforce it, if necessary, is attracting
considerable attention here. The news
from Morocco is far being reassuring
and civil' war is anticipated. Conflict
ing reports are still in circulation in re
gard to the death of the late Sultan of
Morocco, and the general opinion seems
to be that Suit.Ln Abdul Aziz will have
to defend his throne with the sword.
The Pall Mall Gazette Tuesday after
noon, referring to the jealousy of the
powers iu regard to Morocco, says that
the danger to Europeun peace is dne to
tho fact that M. Dnpuy is premier and
that he may tako this opportunity of
striking a blow at English prestige. It
is ad Jed tliut a policy of aggression would
bo popular in Franca and Spain, which
counti46s would certainly be satisfied
with a dual control of Morocco, exclud
ing England from "having any voice in
the affaiis of that coantry.
The Xillobe and the St. James Gazette
apprehend that a civil war will be the
only way of settling the succession to the
throne of Morocco.
The Globe in view of the dispatch of a
F rench fleet to Morocco counsels the im
mediate stren;;hteuing of the British
licet off the coast of that coantry.
His Remains Removed.
Tangier, June 12.?The remains of

a brother of the deceeased saltan, has
