in Various Sections.
Washington, IX C., August 24.?Immediately
after the reading of the jourml
tin- message from tiie President on
the subject of tin* rejectiohof the lisle
i-ries treaty was laid before the Senate,
ami was read in full by the elerk. The
reading waa listened to by the .Senators
of both sides with close attention. When
it came to a done, .Mr. .Sherman moved
it be jirinted and referred to the Committee
on Foreign Relations.
.Mr. Edmunds made a brief speech an
, follows:
I must eon less my astonishment nt
such a course on the part of the President.
J must express my surprise and
regret, iu?t (iiHin^ the language of the
iiiMUci tin* regret of a partisan, but

I must siippi se, under tiie principle that

these powers are given him, he will do
nothing at all.

the right to tranship their fish from Halifax
to Boston or New York, the President
was justilied in denying, and it was
his duty to deny, Canada lish.transportatioii

Canadian goods, just us far and as f:ist an
he should deem iu\ adequate redress for
the wrong committed to us. It was
within the competency, and was the
duty,of the President to inform the British
Government that we regarded that

force on the one side and not the other

Alien, .Mr. President, I think it is
that in simple a case an adequate anil
full statute, the force or weakness oi
which, if it has any weakness, hasncvei
been tested l?y the first step, should remain
unexecuted and in a state of "innocuous
desuetude," until thePresident
muy we whether Congress will not put
more .luiinunition into his hands before
lie lires the first gun.
Mr. Morgan, after criticising Mr. Edmunds
for moving an adjournment yesterday
when the message was presented
t?? the Senate, said
It now turns out, as the evidence
dearly established, that the purpose ol
all this opposition to the President in
respect ot his dealing with these fisheries,
had not been to get iho government
ur me people into better shape, but. U
entnip the Kxecutivo ami put him intc
a straight jacket; to put him where hi
would !?> tin- Kidding of the minority o
tin- people of the United States, repre
seated in this chamber by the majority
and where lie should have no option to
doitnythingelse than what they required
and roinnuuided. They had ever
threatened the President with impeach
tuent ii ho dared to disobey their coin'
mauds and to eonutervail their will. Hi
(Morgan) had not been for reUdiation
for the purpose of
much less for the purpose of injuring tin
people of the United States, lie hat
been f??r putting it into the power o
of the President to retaliate and thereby
convince tireat Britain and Canada thu
the I'uited States had power enough t<
remedy any wrong they might do, am
that the United States meant to execute
its purpose unless they eauie to sotrn
wis.- and honorable agreement with it
If any Senator had proposed to do some
thing else, let liiin avow it. If any Sen

iet linn avow it.
Mr. Kthnumls said that lest by hi
siloncc ho might Ik* token to accede t
*hat that gentleman had said, he woul
?tat<s that he was very far from avowin
that tin- President, under the law, wn
i?> proceed to obtain redress for what ha
occurred before the passage of the lav
unlet* it had occurred recently, for th
statute itM-lf provided that the occasio
for the President's action should I'
something that should have lately o<
<'urr?l. The Senate was looking cliiefl
to the future undoubtedly, but he tnicl
?av also that ho had no expectation tin
that wiiH a lever for a treaty and that wi
all it vu. He thought that it would h
difficult for unyhody to read the rei>o:
upon the bill and iiot understand tin
the cases could l>e much better treatc
hy legislation than by negotiation, as n
the relations of tlio United .Sates wit
Canada, except for two short interval
had been carried on by what was calk
retaliation, until the reciprocal relatioi
adjusted them.
Mr. Morgan said that the 8enat<
Iroui Vermont had drawn the law, at
ii he had known of coses then recent
occurring that violated the treaty
| 1818, ho ought to have put them in and
' made them the busis of the legislation.
| Why had lie not said to the President.
* "These cases have ocurred and this
treaty has been violated, and Congress
. delares in a -hill that retaliation shall
S take place; that negotiations have ended
ami this is not a tit subject of negotiations?"
.Mr. Male characterized the President's
message as
to recover lost ground, and a confession
that the attitude taken l>y him and his
administration as to the treaty, was an
attitude that had no accent or force in it.
Nothing hud shown the wisdom and
patriotism of the course taken by Republican
Senators in rejecting the treaty
as worthless ho clcurly as this message.
ir Mr. Sherman confessed thut the message
of the President mivo him more
pleasure than he usually derived from
messages coming from that high authority,
hut, he thought it was a moment to
j, supply lost ground. If the President
had based his treaty upon the principles
laid down in his messages there would!
hav?? Iiccxi no dilllculty about the treaty, i
and it
would have been ratified
by a unanimous vote. Mr. .Sherman
proceeded to speak of the discriminating
tolls 011 the Canadian eanala, and said
that they ought to lie insisted upon.1
* The matter of sending goods through,
Canada to Portland was a matter of iui-1
portance and beneficial to the people of |
both countries, and if conducted fairly 1
and properly there could be no comI
plaint about*it. If we deal with them on
the principles of justice and right, we
win their favor, rather than provoke
their opposition. I believe that the
result of sueh a mode of dealing with
) them would be the union of the Dominion
of Canada and the United States,
and that that would be best for all. Mr.
George took the lloor and the matter
wentover without aetion, and the Senate
adjourned till Monday.

thou art a jewel." Nobody
who listened to the message without
knowing would dream that it had been
prepared by the same hand that penned
the message to the Senate last spring to
accompany the Bayard fisheries treaty,
or by the authority that consented to
that treaty. In truth,there is not aline
in it that Is in harmony with nny other
paper on this subject, that )jn# conic from
the Executive Mansion or the State department
in the last two years.
Cleveland's curious soMBiWArr/r.
Why this sudden, complete and surprising
somersault? Why is it that the
President is all at once so solicitous to
preserve the rights of American fishermen
to tranship their cargoes in bond
from Canadian ports t^ the United
' Slates that he makes it the principal
point of a solemn messago to Congiess
and proposes to get it hack by the uiost
i severe mode of retaliation upon Canat
dian trade that he can conceive of?
Because the Canadian Government
. persists in denying the American fishermen
a right to which they are unques'
tionably entitled, but which is oi no
value, the President proposes that he be
allowed to place a substantial embargo
! upon the entire trade of Canada for sev.
titnniliu ;> i.vrtrv vonr. Is this the
game President who a few months ago
ltd vised the Senate in a formal message
to consent-to the surrender by treaty of
I tiie hereditary rights of American Ushermen,
sonic of which have never before
1 been called in question, and to agree
t lint the plain terms of the treaty of 181K
. should be construed as to make its provisions
null and void. Surely no acrobatic
performance of Barnum's profes.
sionitis ever equaled tiiis.
ins rowEit already kxixtr.
A long and labored argument appears
' in the message [o prove that tlio right of
[ tile United Suites to deny Canada tile
right to tranship goods across our tec;
rltory in bond is not blocked by any
provision of tlu) treaty of Washington
Iiuw hi iuu;ui iiuuuc iiHnt)ki uiivsnuu- '
e?l tins, anil if the President's argument I
j on this point is sound, as it probably Is, I
, then ho needs no further legislation by
, Congress to authorize him to do what he I
r contemplates, Doesn't the President
know this? Doesn't Secretary Bayard
understand this?
' Or is this part of the message it djsr
graceful attempt to rank? cheap political'

away from him and liis party, and to di*
vert public opinion /row the real issue

out his long detailed letter of acceptance,
with perhaps auother somersault to
make a mate for the one turnutl out yesterday.
1 There is another feature of the mesf
sage which has no reference to the fisheries
dispute?the proposition to rtftpliL

ination against American vessels pass'

Washington, P. C., August 24.?The
e message of the President asking for au?
rt thority to declare further retaliatory
^ measures than those given him l>y the
jj act of March 31,1887, against Canada in
), the matter of transporting goods in hand
h, to and from Canadian ports, and iu the
>d transportation of Canadian Roods on
is American canals, created a sensation a!
the Capitol.
:ir There was a general expression of Re
id publican opinion that.the President, al
ly ready had all the authority ho needed t<
of declare retaliatory measures against Can
ada in the act passed by last Congress, ]
but eertain Democrats denied this, saving
that the law gave him authority in J
eertain contingencies, such as continued
outrages on American vessels, but it did rnot
give him the power he now asked to ' 0
prohibit the transportation of Canudian
goods in bond through the United States,
nor to charge tolls on American canals
similar to those charged Americans on n
the Weljand Canal.
The paper is regarded as a political
document pure and simple. It ih a bold |j.
effort to regain the prestige lost by the
Democrats in the New England and Vt'
Northwestern States, and to divert the
attention of the people at large frotn the
discouraging features of Mills' free
trade bill.

Montbeal, August 2H.?The news of ^
President Cleveland's message to Con
gruiw nsKing power 10 wuuiw ^
against Canada caused intense excite- ? .
nient in this city. That a severe blow j '
will be struck at the prosperity of the j
Dominion if Congress sanctions this jQur
policy of non-intercourse is admitted by wjjg
all. Politicians givb it as their opinion
that all Canada could do was to assume ?
the defensive, pursue her own policy as ^
if nothing had happened and await the t .(
time 'when the American people, par- j.
ticularly those of the Northwestern
States, should grow weary of the con- ^
Hnementof their natural trade, which, it occa
is predicted, woulcl be but a very few sons
months. .Iud(
A high official of the Grand Trunk giss,
Company expressed tho opinion that in Judj
the event 01 non-intercourse it would ers, <
be very serious to the Grand Trunk dele]
railroad, and also be very disastrous to
such roads as tho Canada Southern and
Michigan Central, which run through 111 11
portions of Ontario. He regarded it pray
simply a stroke policy on the part of the man
President to injure the liepublicans in (lnu
Minnesota and Maine, where the effects noj(j
of a non-intercourse law would be es- t.jIJlj)
pecially experienced. Hugh McLennoil,
a leading grain exporter of the port, jcn
said that free canals were the only rem- j>r'
edy. Jf the United States were to put wcrc
heavy toll on vessels passing inrougu tjie
the "Soo" canal, the Montreal grain men ypo!
might as well close up. Trade would be j^.VJ
diverted to UufJ'alo and the St. Law- wj,j(
rence route and the port of Montreal he ml(J
left dependent on Canadian grain.

'ariflf League, several weeks ago, arrived
1 the city yesterday afternoon and will
jmain here. For several months
iwt .Mr Weeks has been in New York
ity looking after the interests
f the League, with occasional
sits to this city to look after his
rivatc business. ^ The work was too
itlicnlt and Mr. Weeks decided to withraw
from the Tariff League. Hisregnation
was accepted on condition that
e would remain until the responsible
osition could be filled. Ex-Governor
[enry M. Hoyt, of this .State, was finally
ugnged and assumed the duties of the
lllce the other day. In conversation
ith a reporter yesterday afternoon air.
\ eeks wud:
"1 am now a private citizen and will
Kvote my time to my papers, the Ameriin
Manufacturer and tho American Pro'? ,
and also the duties of .Secretary of
je Weutern Iron Association. This orimization
is intact and was not broken
l> by the recent wage differences with
io Amalgamated Association. The
lanufacturers' Association which was
irmed in 1882 to regulate wages was the
ne that went to pieces. The pjg iron,
le sheet iron aud other manuiauturerh'
rgunizations remain intact."
Mr. Weeks believes that a protective
triir will win against a low tariff in the
lining Presidential election, and for
lonths has been in position to obtain
aod proof to bear out his opinion. Upon
L'ing told that it was predicted that the
;cpubliean party would carry all the
'orthern States with the exception ol
ew York, New Jersey, Connecticut and
ndiana, he said:
"This would give the Republicans 182
lectors and the Democrats 152 outside
f the four States that are classed as
rmbtful. Tho Democrats, however, are
iven Virginia and West Virginia,which
ill likelv tro ttonublican or should huvc

Atlanta, Ga., AugustiH.?Wo must "C

remark made by a prominent Democratic
leader at Chautauqua, who went up to

there is no doubt but he echoed the sen,
timents oi a great many present. Major . "
McKinley's speech is the talk of the
I town to-day. Many hide-hound Demo|

, are mad because McKinley was ever
invited, and they have turned in

and its managers for having done tj,
so. The great majority of the
\ Democrats of tho city, however, ex- Jjj
' press themselves as pleased that McKin!
ley received such a cordial greeting at oi:
the hands of the people of the State. #v
While many of them do not agree with th
him in his argument, they are yet broad on
enough to be willing to listen to hoth fir
- sides of the ouestion and to extend any va
distinguished gentlemen from wherever at
ho might come the same hospitable wi
, treatment which they would expect in o\
the North. It would lmvo made Col- wi

scene after his speech at Chautauqua St

audience in the tabernaclo thronged dt
. around him ami pressed forward to ja
. shake his hand, ile had a pleasant re
word for all, and seemed much pleased ei

1 his speech. His speech was so strong Tl
. and yet so courteous and inofl'ense, ap- Ei
pealing as it did for proof of its asser- Oj
tious to Georgiea's greatest Btatesmau, co

1'irrsmitmt, August 24.?Severd of
ho principal paper manufacturers of the
Jnited States held a meeting at thu
Uonongahela uouso yesterday, lor tno
mrpose of devising ways and means for
idvancing the price of mnnilla paper,
specially that quality used for making
>aper bags used by grocers. These repcsentativcs
of the paper makers say that
hey have realized for some time that
he price of manilla paper has been ho
ight that it hardly paid to handle it,
ml hence the necessity of this meeting.
Che low price, they claim, is dne to im>rovcd
methods of manufacture,*to the
ntroduction of new materials in the art
>f paper making, and also to a species of
ulnlteration, known aa "loading," by
vhich inferior materials, such as wood
>ulp, are put into paper in place of rags.
The paper men, at their meeting yeserday,
discussed variouH ways of advancing
the price of manilla, such as n
rust of combination, and finally consludcd
that the most feasible mode
vould be to order a shut-down in the
nanulaeture of the manilln grade of
taper. To this end a sort of a uuasi-or,.t
?..,0 f,..,.f
ho gentlemen present with M. \V. i'ayor,
of Cleveland, as President. All the

the UniUid States will be notified,
iml it was determined that u meeting to
zoinplctu the arimigoments necessary to
lie shut down would be caM?d soon
igain, to meet in Pittsburgh or Clevennd.

PiTTSuuitoii, Pa., August 24.?Furnace
wncrs in the Mahoning and Shennngo
Valleys were complaining loudly to
local coke producers of the delay in
diipping fuel, due to the washouts of
railroads in the coke region. .Severn 1
furnaces will be badly crippled if they
lo not get a supply by Saturday. Meanwhile
the producers are powerless, and
many of theui cannot communicate with
Lheir ovens to aseertaiirthe condition of
iflairs, mid not a car has been shipped
westward from the region for three days.
A. producer stated yesterday that there
is now 11,000 car loads of coke stocked in
the region, and that the ovens will have
shut down for a few days if transportation
facilities are not improved by tho
end of the week.

of the Charleston convention it i?
stated that Mr. K. A. BHlingslen, of thin

This is doubtless a tninprint, an nil who

injiiHtico to Sir. Miller. In speaking of
the nomination for State Superintendent
of Schools it Hays: "Miller got the floor,
and amid a storm of yells and cries of
Put him out,' moved that he (McLure)
he nominated by acclamation." Now,
the fact is that many of Miller's friends
called for him to sit down, not wanting
him to withdraw his name, and claiming
that he would be nominated on the ballot
then in progress. It is agreed on all
sides that Miller would have been nominated
by a large majority had not the
geographical distribution of the ticket
determined otherwise. It is but a mat|
t*-r of justice to Mr. Miller that the**
statement be made. A Delegate.
