While the war preparations were in full
blast some branches of English industry
were much relieved; but now that the
Government seems desirous of peace at
any price, this stimulant will be lacking. A
Wolverhampton letter to tlio American
Mahv/a$lurer, written when the war movement
was yet in full blast) paints a sombre
picture of British industry. A few extracts
will give an idea of the situation:
Trade keeps so very dull that the home
railways havo no encouragement either to
extend or to prematurely rolay. The
trallie receipts ot nearly all the lines show
a steady falling off week by week. This
is especially Been in respect of the liues
running through the chief manufacturing
districts associated with the coal and iron
industries. Quite notable is the fact in
this relation that so much are they in advance
at tho great Crewe Works of the
London & North Western railway, that
the company could afford to at once shut
up their locomotive works for six months.
Some of tho metal branches are beginning
to complain of the effect of the
demand for army recruits upon the supply
of labor. At this there should secarcely
be anv surprise since men are now entering
the army at the rate of 2,000 per
week. But tho labor market generally
has not yet been sensibly influenced, so
widespread has been the falling off in
The bad trade of tho country, which is
affecting everyone from the bishop to the
bargeman, is now telling upon tho workmen's
unions First, men upon a strike
have had their strike pay largely decreased
; now certain of them *ro receiving inrimfttinn

establishments on tho Wear at Sunderland.
came out on strike to compel their
employers to limit the number of apprentices,
and to obtain a'rise of wages. After
lusting lor 04 weeks, during which upwards
of ?40,000 have been disbursed, tho
strike has now starved itself out; for tho
strike hands have been told by the exec:
utive of the Amalgamated .Engineers that
"they had bettor accept work wherever
tbev can get it"
Tho Yorkshire coal masters who have
given notice to their men for a drop of ten
percent, and who, as ray reader* will remember,
are now joined by tho Derbyshire
masters, appear likely to carry the
day. Though there are from 30.000 to
40,000 miners ou strike, and consequently
the large pita in South and West Yorkshire-are
idle, there isyet nothing like a
scarcity of coal fn the district, nor have
prices gone up more than a shilling a tou.

trade is attributed to "the robber tarifl."
Working men are told that if it wero not
for the protective tariff- they would have
full empldyinent at good wages and the
necessaries of life "would be cheap?the
glass-blower would bo employed steadily
at acceptable wages, and tho iron-worker
would buy his glass ware at English prices;
that, in short, only tho tariff stands between
us and groat prosperity and cheap
If this be true, what is the matter with
tho industries of Great Britain? Why is
it that "the bad trade of the country
affects everyone from the bishop to the
bargeman" ? No "robber tarifl" stands in
the way there. Tho British wage-earner
basks in the glorioussunlightof free-trade,
yet he is not a happy man. Thief United
States continues to buy liberally of his
cheaper product and takes that much from
its own bread-winners; and still the industries
of that old manufacturing country
are sorely depressed and tens of thousands
' of men are idle.
There is no political campaign on hand
now, and Americans can look into these

Senator MnUonu'it Position?Th? 8npr?me
From a Rtceut Idler.
The following letter was written by
. Senator Mahono: The divided opinions
delivered by the Supremo Court of the
Uuited btates since the preparation of the
foregoing paper mako this addendum
necessary to a proper understanding of
the present status of the dobt Question in
The Rlddloberge'r law, as originally enacted,
Is merely a refunding measure. It
ascertains tho true indebtedness and fixes
the proportion of the share of each clots
of obligation theretofore assumed to represent
the debt of the unpartitioned Slate,
for which new bonds of tho Virginia that
now is aro proposed to be given. In no
sense or relation was tills law before the
court, nor does tho cqurt deal with it.
It was with the prerogative of the taxreceivable
coupon, and Die legislative and
ofllcial acts that are alleged to invade the
sanctity of tho contract which it imports,
that the court dealt.
These several acts, Uio more conspicuous
of which aro referred to in the foregoing
papor, forbidding peremtorlly the
receivapility of the coupon, which were
passed by the Democratic party in the
late Legislature, wo believed at the time
were unconstitutional. They could not
fail to result in irritatingpubhcseulimont,
exciting false hopes, inspiring a more aggressive
attitude, anil arresting tho progress
of our debt settlement.
But tho act of tho Assembly commonly
called by lia assailants "Coupon Killer
number two" was beliovcd to bo nitliin
the decision of the Court In an analogous
case. The effort was to conform all our
legislation to tholaw as established by tho
highest court in the country. The language
of this act is substantially the same
as an act of tho State of Tonnessco to prevent
tho interception of her ruvonues by
the notes of the Hank of Tunncssce.
These weroby law receivable tor taxes as
are the coupons hore. The Supremo
Court of tho United States unanimously
sustained the validity of that act In tho
caso of Tennessee vs. Shead, decided at
the October terra, 187", (90 U. 8. Roji. p.
More recently (October term, 1882,) In
the case of Antoni vs. Greenhuw, in which
the validity of the act of Virginia of Jannary
14,1882, is sustained (the act called
by our enemies Connon Killer, No. 1), tho
Court through the Chief Justice, refers to
the decision in the Teuuesseo case, and
"Wo might have satisfied omtolves by a
reference to the case of Tennessee vs.
Sneail, uii tuprti, where the Mini gmmil
quation inu If/orelujbutasweweru asked
to reconsider that caso we have done so,
with tho same result, and, aa we think,
til m?.. Mnsiitiiii iliinnrtlnnfnini llm
K1U1KUI4U MUjr UMMHW ?Vpw<|,?V0.>HV
long line of nun 111 which tlia principle
Involved luabeenrecognitad and applied."
The dodaion, in concluaion, ran oi our
Viryloia net oi January 14,1888; "leu
much as we are satisfied tbat a remedy Is
given by the act of 1882, substantially
equivalent to that In force when the coupons
were laaued, we have not deemed It
necessary to consider what would be the
effect of a statute taking away all remedies."
This was a positive reafflrmance of
the right ol a State to change or prescribe
the adequate process by which claims
against her may be enforced.
It Is in this act only of onrs (to which
objection new appears by the late decision,
as being st variance with the decision in
Tennessee vs. Snead), In connection with
the subsequent legislation of the Democratic
party, that the Supreme Court in its
recent decision, touches our Readjustee
Republican debt settlement The act
called by our opponents "Coupon Killer
No. 1" stood the ordeal of a constitutional
trial before this Court In the case of A ifton!
vs. Greenhow, and was, as before
stated, declared valid (only two Justices
Hlnuintiniri. as it had been by the Supremo
Court of V /rglnia. The subsequent legislation
of the Democratic party a flee tins it
has fortunately been pronounced unconstitutional
by tho late decision. This act
(January 14, 1882) and the Kiddleberger
debt law remain in force, unhinged by the
late decision, the one making a square
proposition for the settlement of the actual
debt, and tho other requiring no more
than that the genuiness of the tax-recelvable
coupon tendered in payment of taxes,
dues and demands of tho State shall be
established, as may be lawfully required
of any such claim against a creditor.
Our debt settlement will proceed by
Constitutional metbpd9, if the Republicans
have the power, and we do not
doubt our ability to conform tbo act of
January 2(1,1882, to the present opinion
of the Supreme Court, without impairing
its eflicacy for the purpose It was designed
It has been the idle, inconfiderate.and
vindictive,!meddling through petty, illconsidered
ill-conceived and peiulant
measures of the Democratic party in the
late Legislature that has arrested the
quiet and orderly settlement of the whole
natter of the debt on the basis of the
Itiddleberger law, to the great detriment
of thu peace of the people, and agaiust the
ultimate interest of the creditor.
Tho confusion and misapprehension,
thefeaniand false hopes, and the preju
dices which have thus been creaieu, prom
only attorneys, brokers and speculators.
The bona fi Je bolder of Virginia bond*
outside of the Kiddleberger law will sooner
or later realizo that be is no better oif, and
that, after all, his best interests are to be
subserved by refunding under that law.
-3%e people of Virginia, and likewise the
creditor, have abundant cause to fear the
custody and treatment of this question by
the Democratic party of the State. They
havo only to adhere to the Kiddleberger
settlement, and elect men to administer
their public affairs who honestly believe
in it and have the sense to carry it out.

Wtuhiityton Lett# to PhUadeljiMa Than,
There is a dim, shadowy fear oniong the
Io* fiftnftal that the mvthical
Buffalo lady whom rumor liaa betrothed
to Mr. Cleveland may turn up at any time
and carry off the prize, but there is the
beat authority far stating that the fear is
groundless. The only woman the Presidont
ever loved has been dead more than
twenty years. The most authentic reports
have it that while quite a young
man. teaching school in a western New
York village, he met and loved a young
girl notyetsevonteen. They were engaged,
but the poverty of bptli parties.prevented
marriage. .The young teacher made
up his mind to go to Ohio for the
purpose of providing a home for his betrothed,
and was on the point of starting
for the west when she fell sick, and in less
than a week was carried to hnr last resting
place. There are no absolute proofs
of thelruth of this story. The President
has never mentioned the matter to his
nearest friends acd the only source of Information
is town gossip, handed down
with perhaps the usual variations and additions.
Whether the President ha* remained
single out of a romantic fidelity to
the memory of his youthful love, or
whether a bachelor life is best suited to
his inclinations is, of course, a matter of
conjecture. Those .who know him best
sav that ho is too well fixed in nld ways to
change at this late (lay, and that no bride
will be mistress of the White House while
ho is its occupant. _
A Canary Bird's Bacchanal Song,
Mllicaukte Keening Witconnln.
A tiny yellow-leathered canary bird
stopped eating hemp seed, and began
cocking its head on one side, then scratching
its bill with one claw, the bird began
to sirig in llute-like tone*, "We Won't Go
Homo 'Till Morning." livery note was as
true and prompt as a French music box.
Despite thu animated appearance of the
songster, it was so unusual to hear tlio
mvHtprinir Honir of the bacchanals chanted
that the bystanders looked suspiciously
around to fiud the muRic box that was
playing the timo. The bird belongs to L.
D. Stebbins, the watchmaker, on Wisconsin
street, anil lie explained the modus operandi
by which the little songster acquired
its surprising faculty.
lie said that the bird had been bred by
himself, being a common canary. The
parent birds were chosen with reference to
volumo of voice and quality. "As soon as
the bird was born," he said, "the education
was begun. A mouth organ ^aathe

it was eight months belore the education
was completed. The bird can sing'We

but there ils acquirements end. It has
