Sheridan was buried on the second anniversary of the burial of Graut. It is unfortunate that both do not lie in the National cemetery at Washington.

It is generally admitted that if Ilarrison keeps on with those magnifi cent speeches that he can elect himself without any help from the National committee. What in the world has become of vice-presidential candidate Wakefield? Why don't he take off his "specs" and make the welkin ring with some of h's old-time anarchistic speeches?

The Wages Question Again. Yesterday we were discussing the flunctuation of wages with the changes of the tariff. What would be the re sult, as proven by the experience of other nations, of putting our wage workers on a par with those of Europe by admitting their products, as the Mills bill contemplates, and as free trade Democracy contemplates, to com pete with our own? Let us look for a moment at the condition of the laboring cl-isses in free-trade countries. There is not a better authority than the New York Sun which, though Democratic in politics, seeing the iniquity and in justice latent in this Democratic meas ure, speaks its mind as follows: There is only one country in Euroyi in which the wages of labor are within a half of what they are in this country. That is Great Britain. Wages in Germany, Prance, Belgium and Switzerland are not one-third ol what they are here. Those of Italy art not one quarter. One duty of government is to protect the labor of its citizens. Last yeai cheap foreign labor was imported into the United States in the shaps of man ufactured goods to the value of $692. 319,7GS. This was a great wrong to American labor. In that immense amount of imports, permitted by oui insufficient and defective tariff, the labor of women employed in the Man chester, Eugland, cottou mills, whose wages do not average 660 a year, came into competition with the higher priced labor of our southern aud northern cot ton spinners. In that mass of imports was the labor of German factory work men averaging less than Silo a year, and that of women averaging less than S50 a year. Munich is a gallery and center of art. German women with as mauy as six children saw wood in the streets for 15c a day. May a merciful God sink the United States 10,000 feet under the sea before the hideous spectacle shall become au incident of our civilization! Nearly 700.000,000 worth of the star vation labor of Europe in the form of manufactured goods imported into this country last year! That which came from Belgium in bales and boxes rep resented the wages of 32 cents a day for women and 43 cents for men; and the highest-priced labor in loose car goes of Belgian steel and iron repre sented wages less than SO cents a day. Compared with these the wages of Car negie's men at Braddock are the in comes of priuces. Italian labor in Italian merchandise was imported into this country last year, in competition with American labor, at prices that should fill sensitive souls with horror aqd alarm for the fu ture of the human race. The pay in the cotton factories of Naples is 20 cents a day; of the Neapolitan marble and granite cutters from forty to fifty cents a day, according to skill; of coachmen, thirty cents, and girls seven cents; of soldiers in the army. $2 a month. Of all the workmen in the glassworks of Italy, only the skilled blowers receive as high as SI a day, and laborers on farms, hoeing or making .hay, from.fif teen to eighteen cents a day, working from sua to sun. God save America from such wages! , In the Swiss silk goods whiclNcame into our half-protected country last year in those $7,000,000 of imports, was the skilled labor of men at" forty-one cents a day and of women at twenty cents, both competing with the silk weavers of Patterson, New York, Phil adelphia and Cheney. Glasgow, in Scot land, is the steamship factory of the world, and its blast furnace owners and iron rollers howl for free trade day and night. Of the families in that manu facturing Sodom, 41,000 out of 100,000 live in one room, and half of the men and women in the city are chronically out of work. That one, room for a family of father, mother, daughters and sons tells what wages are paid in Scotland, and how they drag hnr " down into bestialitv o omty Brothfiua .;,. .i iur . . iu misery. t -:., ore Mills bill to reduce the ntt is the first step to that one room for an American family. Fight it without delay, and fight it to its death; and then make your tariff so protective as to shut out cheap foreign labor in the form of manufactured eoods. Voorhees1 Eoomerang- That speech of Dan Voorhees will bear reproducing in every paper in the State. Gazette. Bight you are, brother, for it shows him up as an arrant fraud. The "tall sycamore" evidently forgot his record and spoke only to please the crowd be fore him, entirely oblivious of the fact that he was condemning himself by the words he used. In at least one of its many remarka ble assertions, the speech is distin guished for its audacious inconsistency. Mr. Voorhees charged the Republican party with entering into a conspiracy to discriminate against and degrade the immortal greenback. The Indiana statesman asserted that this Republi can conspiracy, as he was pleased to term it, was inaugurated in 1S62, when the greenback was made non-receivable for duties on imports and for interest on the bonded debt of the United States. "I was amazed when I read that pas sage from Mr. Voorhees' speech," said Mr. McPhersou, secretary of the Re publican Congressional Committee, a -'As a member of the House in 1S62 Voorhees voted against the Stevens amendment to the bill to authorize the issue of greenbacks. That amendment mide the gieenback a legal tender for all purposes, including custom duties, interest on the public debt and for all debts owing by the United States to anybody within the United States. The amendment was adopted and then Voorhees voted against the bill, along with Pendleton, Vallandigham, Sunset Cox, Ilolman and most of the other Democrats. The Senate a few days later passed a legal tender bill which was in many respects the same as the House bill. When the subject again came before the House, and the Senate amendments were considered, Mr. Voorhees voted for the proviso requir ing interest on the public debt to be paid iu coin. That amendment was carried by a vote of SS to oo, and forty two of the affirmative votes were cast by Democrats, while fifty-three of the negative votes were cast by Republi cans. In other words, the Republican conspiracy to degrade the immortal greenback succeeded by the votes of torty-two Democrats, including Voor hees, and forty-six Republicans, while fifty-three Republicans and two Demo crats voted to prevent it. Mr. Voor hees evidently has forgotten the part he took in the conspiracy, or else he has changed his mind. He was one of the criminals in 1S62 whose crime he so vigorously denounces in 1SSS." Yes, let us "reproduce" that speech and alongside of it "reproduce"5 the in consistent Senator's recoiu. New York and Connecticut. Evidence is constantly pouring in that the 'doubtful" States of New York and Connecticut are becoming less doubtful every day. They are manufacturing States and the thousands of employes are realiziug that their wages will be better under protection than under Cleveland's and Democra cy's free-trade policy which will place them on a par with the pauper labor of Europe, We produce below an article from the Xew Haven liegister, a Democratic paper, upon the situation in Connecti cut. The Begister says: We may as well be frank while we are upon the subject, and state the sit uation as it is. The chances today in Connecticut are against the Democrats. We will not rehearse again all the reasons therefor. They are well known to every intelligent observer. If the Democrats are to carry the State in November for Cleveland and Thurman, the work of organization must be com menced at ouce. The situation de mands a long, not a short, campaign. The issues upon which the election will turn are not so simple that they can be understood in a moment. The plausi bilities of protection must be cleared away by logical argument. Logical argument takes time. Not a day too many remains1 for worX if the Demo crats are to carry Connecticut. Let the leaders look to it. Let it be remembered that the Reg ister is Democratic and paints the situ ation as well as it can for the Demo cratic party. The political situation in Xew York is outlined by the Xew York Times, mugwump. The Boston Herald, con densing what the Times reports, says: The Xew York Times finds much the same apathy existing in the Demo cratioserguization of that State as is found among ihe leaders of the party here at home. The Times finds, on the other hand, that the Bepublicans are hard at work throughout the State, but with less noise than ever before, and unless their opponents are aroused from their legarthy pretty soon, they are going te-haVe" a long start of the Dem ocrats in the Presidential race. A feeling of over-confidence, which isn't warranted, or something worse, seems to be playing the deuce with the Dem-ocracy-in this campaign.

Trains Loaded With Refugees Flyinsr to the Xorth Business Paralyzed. at Jacksonville. Fears of Idle ITegroes Balding Property The City Patrolled Quarantine Eestrictions. iACKSO.vviLLE, Fla., Aug. 14. The fevar panic continues. People are leaving the city by every known means o exodus. The Qutlying cities and towns, both near and distant, are continually establishing quarantine against this place. Macon, Ga., which had opened its gates to all refugees, closed them yesterday. The only kuown exit is now through Atlanta, and if Way Cross maintains a strict quarantine' and the Government establishes a camp for refugees at Boulogne, twelve miles this side of there, the present inhabitants of Jacksonville will be practically shut in on all sides. The Citizens' Auxiliary Asso ciation to the County Board of Health was in session all the morning, various matters being under discussion. The police force has been increased and six mounted po lice now patrol the streets night and day. No case of yellow fever has yet occurred among the negro population. Business is completely paralyzed and negroes out of work gather iu knots in the streets, and it is feared will soon begin to plunder and pillage the hundreds of unoccupied houses in the city. Humors of martial law are afloat. The situation does not yet demand it, but may at almost any hour, if the thousands of blacks remain out of work. By reason of the exodus from the city, the banks have been largely drawn upon for funds. No deposits are coming in, as the merchants find it impossible to col lect accounts. The Florida Savings Bank and Real Estate Exchange, J. C. Greely, president, this morning posted a notice on the door to the effect that the pressure upon it had forced it to take advantage of the sixty days' notice with reference to the withdrawal of deposits. No funds will be paid out at present. This has not caused a pauic as yet, but will when it becomes moro generally known. Lime, sulphui and tar have been ordered in largo quanti ties, and to-night several hundred fires will be kindled all over the city, two or three in every block, in order to kill the fever germs if possible. Nearly every hotel, boarding house and restaurant in the city has been closed. Hundreds of stores are closed and the pro prietors havo lied. All others close .at five p. m. and open at nine a. m., in or der to avoid contact with the night air. Many clubs are forming in private houses wholly. All mails are fumigated by order of the Post-office Department. The West ern Union telegraph officials, are embar rassed, only ubout one-third Of the opera tors remaining. The press reports for the Times-Union could not be taken from the wires. Tho men could not work. There is great difficulty in transmitting specials from here. Score upon score are returned to tho newspaper correspondents "not transmitted.'' The situation last night was as follows: Only two new cases of yellow fever are reported in the city as occurring in the past twenty-four hours B. F. Dillon, su perintendent of tho "Western Union Tele graph Company, and "William Sheppard," residing on Church street. Dr. Mitchell, president of the Board of Health, does not think Mr. Belder died of yellow fever. No other deaths are reported. Deaths yester day, Ij recovered, 1; under treatment, 19; whole number of cases so far, 25; total deaths, 4. OFFICIAL BULLETIX. "Washington, Aug. 14. Acting Surgeon General Stoner has received a telegram from Dr. Mitchell, at Jacksonville, Fla., as follows: Official bulletin for last twenty four hours: New cases, three; recovered, one; deaths, one (Mrs. W. S. McClelland); under treatment, seventeen; number of cases to date, twenty-one; number of deaths to date, three. A dispatch from Dr. "Wall, at Tampa, Fla., says: Two suspicious cases since last night; one death; tendency to epidemic. Only semi-weekly communication now with Manatee. No sickness in Plant City. Surgeon-General Hamilton stopped over in Savannah, Ga., Sunday night on his re turn from Way Cross, Ga. Yesterday he was driven around the city and shown its worst points. He pronounced it in excel lent sanitary condition and said if Jack sonville refugees are kept out of Savannah he has no reason to apprehend the incur sion of yellow fever, as the city is very clean and the water pure. Tho Surgeon General has left Savannah for "Washing ton. The Savannah Benevolent Associa tion has contributed .f 1,000 for tho relief of the distressed, at Jacksonville, A telegram from New Orleans says: The Louisiana State Board of Health has in spectors on all incoming trains, and per sons ascertained to be from fever-infected points in Florida are detained at quaran tine until seven days have elapsed from the date of departure from such infected points. The City Council of Atlanta, Ga., at its special session .yesterday added $5,000 to the Board of Health fund for keeping the city in good condition. Every train from the South was heavily loaded with people. The city authorities at Nashville, Tenn., hafe decided not to quarantine against points in Florida infected with yellow fever, but have ordered a thorough cleans ingip of the city and inspectors of train to keep-track of refugees who may-stop here. En Route IIo"Vic New York, Aug. 13.-Mr. James G.

Only Four Companies Left In Stevens Count v. laBERAL, Kan., Aug. 13. Companies B, C, D and G of the Second regiment, Kan sas national guards, and nine men of bat" tery B, all under command of Major J. L. Shewalter and accompanied by Captain John A. "Wallace, of General Myers' staff, arrived here from Stevens County yester day and left on the regular passenger train in the afternoon for Atchison where the compauies will separate and troops leave for their respective homes. There are still two companies at Woodsdale and two at Hugoton, but it is expected that these will also bo returned to their homes within a week unless some new trouble should occur. All tho citizens of Woodsdale and Hugo ton have been disarmed, and when Sam Robinson and his party returned from To peka a few days ago they also had to give up their weapons. The military authori ties have received in all about seventy five rifles, guns and pistols, but it is not supposed that these are all the arms which are owned by the inhabitants of the two towns. The weapons will be kept in charge until it seems likely that permanent peace has been restored. Adjutant-General Campbell called a meeting of the fanners of Stevens County Saturday and gave them a little talk, ad vising them to assist in keeping factional feeling down and helping to prevent fur ther trouble in the county. The inhabit ants of "Woodsdale and Hugoton, and of the county generally, have been informed that if further trouble and bloodshed oc curs the Legislature will be asked by the Governor next winter to disorganize the county. The farmers are well aware of the fact that these disturbances are injuri ous to their material welfare and to the prosperity of the county and they will un doubtedly try to uphold the peace. It is calculated that the military expe dition to Stevens County will cost the State about $15,000. GLOOMY OUTLOOK. Crops In Iowa antl Dakota;Sunering; From the Colli. Sioux Citv, Aug. 13. Reliable advices regarding the crops in Northwestern Iowa and Southern Dakota contradict tho rose ate reports which are current in the East. In many important crops there is a gloomy outlook. "Wheat and all grains in Northwestern Iowa will yield less than a third of an average crop. In many counties rust has attacked wheat and oats, and probably not moro than one-half tho fields will be cut. Many farmers will cut oats only for a rough feed for stock. Tho fields harvested will produce a fraction of a fair crop. Fields of grain which promised fairly are twisted and trampled by the re cent storms. This situation obtains through three, or four different tiers of counties. In Southern Dakota there are considera ble sections in which the situation is even worse than in Northwestern Iowa, because more wheat and grain aro raised there. The corn crop is slightly damaged in some sections in both Southern Dakota and Northwestern Iowa. Corn was not in good shape to resist the wind, becauso the late spring was followed. by hot showers, near to deep as weather and frequent light These caused the roots to spread the surface instead of striking usual. Extremely cold weather has followed and continues. Corn is ma turing slowly. The crop was two weeks late to legin with. All these things en hance the peril from frost. Tho last week, therefore, has put a new and less agreeable face on the crop out look in this section. Before that time it was exceedingly bright. Even now it is not to be understood that disaster is im pending, but that the reports which were sent out a week ago are to bo taken with many serious deductions. THE RIVER AND HARBOR BILL. The President Unfavorably Impressed "With Some of Its IVaturos. "Washington, Aug. 14. The refusal of the President to sign the River and Harbor bill for the reason that there were items in it which he could not approve, has again called attention to the suggestion that the President should be permitted to veto portions of an appropriation bill. The movement which has become so general in the States has thus far met with little encouragement in Congress. No one seems disposed to take the first steps necessary to bring about this change. Some of the President's reasons for failing to affix his signature to the River and Har bor bill were made public to-day, through engineer officers with whom he talked re garding the points of the bill. It has been generally assumed that the schemes to purchase the Green and Barren river im provements, and the Monongahela river dams were the chief obstacles in the way of the approval of the bill, but it is said that after the President was given to understand the nature of these pur chases he fvdly approved them. The point that he found the most fault with, was the failure of Congress to leave any discretion with the Mississippi and Missouri River Commissioners. He found that out of $1,100,000 appropriated for the Missouri river, less than $75,000 had been left to be expended within the discretion of the Commissioners, and about the same proportion of the Mississippi river money had been allowed the Commission. The President was wroth, and after asking what these Commissions were for, charged that the distribution of this money was part of a log rolling scheme, and that if it. would not wipe out the whole bill he would veto it. Sherklan Will. Wasiuxgto.v, Aug. 14. The will of the late General Sheridan, dated May 23, 1S8S, has been admitted to probate. He left to his wife one-third of all his personal prop erty in lieu of dower, and Mrs. Kate Sherl dan, his mother, s'nee deceased, the Ohio homestead, to revert to his son, Phil H.
