FALL OP TIIS I’JIIME MINI6TEU—WIIT RBFOBMS
AUE IMPOSSIBLE.
lotulvn StHdaior, Ann, n.
Tho fall of Khatrcddln Pasha, tho Prime Min
ister, reported this week from Constantinople,
Is a very important event. For thu second time,
a Grand Vizier, backed with more or leas ear
nestness by all the European Embassies, has at
tempted to limit thu semi-saerud authority of
tho Sultan, and for tho second time thu failure
Ims been complete. Kbatrcddin, like Midlist,
was a very ablo man, ami llko Mldlmt he ap
pealed to the reforming party,—only to learn,
llko Midlist, that this parly has no strength.
Popular 1 power fo Turkey, stub os It
is, remains with tho Old Turks, who
aro led by the Ulema, which latter cannot, if
they would, deet&ro tho Kballf less than ab
solute. Thu notion that thu lawyers simply
obey orders from tho palaco Is erroneous. Tho
Ulema wilt, no doubt, remain silent wheu
speech Is disagreeable to tho Sultan; but when
asked, they always give a decision In accordance
with thu Sacred Law, ami under that law thu
Klmllf must always remain unfettered. There
is no escape possihlu in Turkov from this circle,
aud no resistnneo conceivable, so long as thu
Sultan Is also thu ruprescutatlvc of thu faith,
uiidthuinob is Mussulman. A constitutional
Klmllf is just as possible as a Protestant Pope,
ami so long os the Khallfato exists, so lung will
any Minister, however powerlul, fall ut his
muster’s nod. Tilts particular collapse is ex
plained by affirming that Klmlrcddm was an
Arab; bub Mldlmt belonged to thu dominant
caste and thu regular official hierarchy, uud fell
just as easily.
With Klmlrcddm falls, according to one gen
erally trustworthy, authority, a verv great
scheme. An Arab and a Tunisian, hu'hud au
Idea. It Is said, u( sacrificing the European do
minions of the tiultau, sndcompensating him bv
reviving his authority over Egypt, Arabia. Tunis,
Tripoli, and the whole of Korui Africa, the whole
of which, except thu strip of Algeria in which
Frenchmen are really obeyed, is governed by a
dominant Arab caste. To curry out this plan, it
’ would have been necessary la emigrate to Asia,
to shako ul! European influence, and to rein
vigorotu Mohammedanism at Its ceuirc; uud
this, according to the statement, was Klialred
dlu’s leading Idea, which hud its attraction
even lor his master, who has heard. of
the glories of tbo elder Khaltfolv.
It might bo carried out by d strong
man, but be must be a Kbnlif, and must have
« hat tin* later Turkish Bulnmn have never had,
—the confidence of the Arabs, tin; ability to
lead a conquering nrtnv in tin* field, and (tie
strength to give equal rights to all Mohamme
dans. The Arabs will never yield to the a*ceml
rncy, though they may submit, to the power, of
a Mongol tribe, which nos never claimed to lie
civilized, has never founded a city, and never
produced a learned moo.
TUB FRINCB IMPERIAL—A CONTRAST.
Paris, July 30.—The /Am t XtiUtu;/, a German
military paper, speaking of Lieut. Carey, who,
It thinks, cannot tie considered to have neglected
Ids military duty in not hazarding Ids life for
one whose- position in the English army was
that, of a spectator, cites an adventure of Prince
Friedrich Schwarzcnherg, who look part as u
volunteer In the conquest of Algeria:
“One day he accompanied a party of Chas
seurs a Cheval on an expedition, in the course
of which they were attacked by superior forces
mid had to gallop off as fast as they could. The
Prince, who brought up tho rear, soon re
married Unit his saddle was ill-adjusted ami was
getting so loose that he feared Ire should lose
it, in which ease tho fiery Arabian steed would
In ail probobllliy have thrown him ami ho would
have been left without hope of rescue. The
Prince accordingly asked one of tire chasseurs
i nearest to him lo stop fora minute and lend
him a bund to set it right; but. as the pursuers
were almost at their heels, nobody took notice
of the not verv inviting solicitation. The Prince
therefore hod to dismount atone, but, through
tire restlessness of his horse, found It .impos
sible to get tire straps fastened. Suddenly one
of tire chasseurs turned aud came to lift assist
ance. saving it should never be said that a
French soldier left h foreign officer in tiro
lurch. With the aid of the gallant fellow, the
saddle was adjusted, and the two loiterers
caught up to their party. The Prince, who has
fought lu many climes and seen many a bravo
fight, has always greatly extolled this deed ot
the gallant chasseur without over blaming tho
conduct of Ids oilier companions.”

cull for the 10-40* matured. The lending sul>-
terihlng banks, however, have lately appealed to
Secretary Sherman for an extension of time,
upon Die ground that to pay into the Treasury
at once that large amount of United Stales
notes, and thus suddenly withdraw so much
money from the channels of business, would
seriously affect the money market, hy forcing
tin* banks summarily to call in their loans, and
would at the same time dourceiatc the 4 per
cent bonds. After a lung discussion
with Die representatives of the subscribing
hanks, the Secretary has muddled his order of
March 25 last, which required the banks to pay
for their bonds upnnihe expiration of ninety
days from the dale of subscription, and directed
that drafts should hereafter be made upon
them
ONLY WREN FUNDS ARB REQUIRED
by the United States Treasurer to redeem the
called bonds presented ot the Treasury Depart
ment for redemption. In the modified order
the Secretary has also directed the Treasurer to
give tiie banks credit on their bond account for
the called bonds presented by them for redemp
tion. Ills provided, however, that the subscrib
ing banks must be prepared lor Anal settlement
with the Government on account of the refund
ing loan upon tiie Ist day of October. Tiie ef
fect of tills new order is to allow the banks to
retain tiie public funds until actually needed by
tin* Treasurer of the United States to pay for
called bonds presented for redemption.
THE TREASURY.
A TALK WITH SECRETARY BIIKRMIN.
Washington, u. C m Aug. 18.—Secretary
Sherman, who leaves for Ohio to-morrow, being
questioned concerning future financial opera
tions of the Treasury, replied*.
“The Treasury operations will probably here
after have.no material effect upon Uu*. money
market. It is probable that before the Ut of
October nearly all the called bonds outstanding,
amounting to about $47,000,000, wit) be pre
sented (or payment, und wtll bo paid for through
the Clearing-House of New York. As much of
this money will go to different parts of Uu:
country elsewhere than New York, the payment
may
CAUSE SOME MOVEMENT OF CUIUIENCr
from that city, but It wilt tmturully soon come
back again. After the refunding operations are
closed out the Treasury payments will bo equal
to our receipts, and no more, except the pin all
balance of the fractional currency fund which
Congress required to be paid out.”
“ What will ho thu probable amount of cold
Imported in payment of hrcadstullp, etc. 1 ”
“1 do not think the movement of cold to this
country will be very large. It is evident our
exports will be greatly In excess of the imports,
and mninlv of brcadstulls, meats, and cotton;
but the excess will bo paid for latccly by Amur-
Icau securities held abroad. I wUh they would
all cornu back: still, some gold wilt cornu, ami our
domestic production of cold will stay here.
This will give the bunks an excellent oppor
tunity to provide themselves with coin reserve
Instead of United Stales notes, of whlcli the
reserve now consists. United States notes will
all bo wanted in active use (or the lamest crops
uml the lamest business wo have ever hud."
“ How about the price of stiver; has it ad
vanced I”
“ Yes: the price of silver Is advancing some
what. There is u better demand for silver lor
China, and therefore the price Is higher in Sun
Francisco than in New York. 1 should nut tie
surprised If the silver on the I’aellle Coast should
go to China, uml that our supply lor coinage
should come from Colorado, Mexico, and per
haps London.’*

OUU FOUI3IGN THAUR
WITH FRANCK, UEUMANV, AND GREAT UItITAIN.
Sixalal JHiDiiidi lo Tit Tribun «.
Washington, D. C., Aug. 18.—Tbo annual
report of the Secretary of State upon the com
mercial relations of the United States with for
eign countries, for the year 1878, has Just beeu
printed, and contains exceedingly Interesting
and significant tables ol figures, setting forth
the improved condition of tlur export-trade of
the Untied States. He says that the depres
sion which has for some years paralyzed
the trade and industries of foreign na
tions was, if ' anything, more emphatic
during the year 1878 thau in previous years.
He holds tliat the statistics shew that wo have
not only now, to a greet extent, emancipated
ourselves from dependence upon Europe fur our
supply of manufactures, but that wo have, in
some important branches of manufactures, eu-
tcred into vtry successful competition with
Europe In Its own morkets.
The trade of France with tbp United States
shows adecrcsfie of linirfirlaUonsinto the United
Stales of nearly $3.5«.0.(J(*J over tho preceding
vear. while tin* domestic exports from the United
Stales to Franco have tncrcascd more than $ JO,-
000,000 In the same time. The following ore
among Iheltcrnsof Increase of the exportations:
The valne of cotton has increased $,*500,000;
lard. $1,000,812: bacon and hams, nearly $2,-
000,000: agricultural Implements, from $280,-
000 lo $042,000; ami wlical-llnur from SI,OOO to
$173,000. The Importation ot silk and velvet
piece goods has decreased about s2.ooo.uni);
calfskin leather, and hides, about $1,000,000:
raw silk, $500,000: cotton goods, $450,000; hats
amt hatters’ goods, $700,000.
The balance of trada between Germany and
the United States, for the year ending June 150,
1878, was, in round numbers, $10,000,000 lu our
favor.
The wheat-import Into Groat Britain from the
United States shows an Increase of $11.000,000;
of cotton, an Increase of $*,000,000: ot bacon
and hams, an increase of over $-*.000,000. The
exports from Great Britain to the United States
of iron, manufactured ami unmanufactured,
have decreased $2,000,000; cotton manufactures,
linen manufactures, ami woolen manufactures
have each decreased about $2,000,000. The year
ISCS was the lost year in which the exportations
of Great Britain to the United States exceeded,
or even equaled, the Importations therefrom.
The highest figure reached since then by Hie
exportations to the United States from the
United Kingdom was in 1872, viz.: 8223,11*5,000;
while (lie Importations from Hie United Slates
during the fame vear amounted to $201,573,000.
From 1574 to 1870 the exportations to the United
Stales fell off more than one-hslf, while I lie im
portations during tin* same period Increased
more than $100,000.000. 'fin* British importa
tions (rum the United Slates during the year
1877 amounted to $378,231,000,—being mi
amount equal to more than one-half inn ex
portations of the United States to all countries,
—an Increase of nearly $11.11X1.000 cm tin* pre
ceding year; while tin* exportations from Great
Britain to Uin United Stales during the year
1877 amounted to $'.10,013,000,— being onir
$J,240,tL0 less than during the rear 1870.
Taking tin* volume ami value of the import
trndb into the United Kingdom from the United
Males Into consideration, mid Its steady annual
increase, it is questionable whether the exporta
tions from tin-United Kingdom to the United
Slates can decrease much further. It is also
questionable wild In r it would be desirable on
our purl to look for any further reduction. Wo
cannot expect to sell all things am) buy nothing;
mid the volume mid value of British imports
from the United Slates, it would now seem,
need only he limited by the ability and desira
bility of England lo purchase from a country
which might not purchase reasonably in return.
INDIAN - TKRRITORY.
THE RECENT ELECTION.
Special to The Tribune.
Washington, D. C., Aug. 18.— It appears
that some persons on behalf of the railroad
companies, which have been at work for several
years trying to have the Indian Territory opened
to white settlement, took on active part In the
recent Cherokee election. The expenses of their
campaign, which was conducted from Parsons,
Ivans., were very considerable: and, os the re
puted managers arc distinguished by their wo
fnl Impccuulosity, it is only fair to infer that
they received assistance from some
one In the railroad interest. Mr. Dr.
Bushyhead. the successful candidate for
tiie office of Principal Chief of the
Chcrokees at the late election, is classed as a
“Liberal” in politics, and his claims were sup
ported by the outside Interests mentioned.
Tlier expect to be able to use him next, winter
to further some of their Fchotces for the spolia
tion of the civilized tribes of the Indian Terri
tory. In this expectation they will, however,
be disappointed. From all accounts, there are
substantially none ot the members of either of
the civilized tnbes In favor of dividing up tiie
country for the beneflt of the railroads, ami Mr.
Bnehyhcad’s Intimate friends say that lie In par
ticular Is as much opposed to the railroad
schemes as any one lu tiie Territory.

.vps'frt/ fHimteh m 7h* Tribune.
St. Louis, Mo., Aug. 18,—The white and col
ored excursion party from the State of .Missis
sippi winch passed through here lust week fur
Kansas will return to 81. Louis at 0 o'clock this
morning, having left Kansas City at 7p. in. lly
arrangement with the railroads, they are allow
ed until tlm tlbth to start from Bt. Louis for Mis
sissippi. Mr. Kims Turner, one of the managers
of (he excursion party, who came on In advance,
stated that about one-fourth of tin* colored por
tion of the excursionists who were uni with
him would remain iu Kansas, and nut
return, lie thinks that the other colored
people generally will bear home a good
report of Kansas, ami thereby induce others to
leave, lie ihlnks that the exodus will continue
thUlnll. lie says lie tells those who have got
¥1)00 to ¥ 100 in cosh that they eon do pretty well
lit Kansas. It now begins to look as though
the enterprising planters who organized this
great excursion, by winch they hoped to secure
such « report from Kansas as would Ulsgunt
every darky in Dixie with the very idea ul emi
gration, have been sadly duped. It is said that
among those who undertook to manage the
excursion were one or two who had
sold themselves to the land and railroad agen
cies of (lie West. These gentlemen were kueu
mid enterprising, and they saw to It that noth
ing unpleasant or sterile should meet the crit
ical gaze ul the UOO representative negroes who
were to report to tla-lr Southern brethren. Tim
train was taken through garden spots, of which
the Blute boasts so many, ami the deliglutul
Indian summer weather, together witli well
(Hied corporoslllcs, to which the railroads ad
ministered, made that region seem u very
paradise to the excursionist*. In fact, so well
did tiny like it Hint lull uue-luurlh of
(he excursionists who went to inspect concluded
they didn't want to go back and report at all,
but wanted to "stay right dur, ami don't be
Inkin’ no chances about gillm' back agin."
Tho balance, however, bail a little more regard
fur the important mission which the brethren of
the South Imd Imposed upon them. They held
on to (heir return tickets, ami now tlm (ruin is
making its return trip, being ou its way from
Kansas City to St. Louts ul this time. It will
arrive here 10-duy, ami it is said that the trav
elers are racking their bruins to find big
enough wonts to describe tho wonderful
beauties of (lie happy bind of Kansas. It is
said that they will report utmost unanimously
In favor of emigration, and urn cotton men are
more alarmed now than ever, for they know Urn
great elfcct which a icport from such a body
will produce. Those who know anything about
the mutter predict on exodus next lull Just
after the cotton harvest in comparison with
which that ul last spring will he simply puny.
It is said (hut oue of the managers to whom tlm
credit of converting this excursion into a power

Ci.Brßi.ANn, 0., Aug. IS.—Durlng Uio two
months tlmt liavu flailed since the meeting of
Hit! (wo State .Conventions In tide Common'
weal Hi, I have liad os good an opportunity ss
almost anv co>respondent could possibly desire
to ascertain the feeling of the people and tho
status of affairs in this “huh of Uio nation”
from n political standpoint. I hare seen both
candidates for Governor several times, and con*
versed with them on their hopes and expeeta*
tions. 1 have frequently talked with their chief
lieutenants In regard to thetr plans (or man*
aging their respective campaigns. 1 have visit*
cd nearly every section of the State, and coo*
versed with members of nil parties, both htuli
and low, both soft mid hard, both Ignorant and
learned, both communistic and noncommunls*
tie, with those out of employment and those
carrying forward profitable jobs. 1 may bavo
misread the signs of the limes, and hare mis*
construed the varied information which I have
gathered; but at any rate 1 feel like evolving a
few predictions and recording a lew reflections
right now as the actual campaign Is about to
open.
Jt should bo stated In Uie beginning that the
20th,of August was the date fixed upon by both
of the Committees some weeks ago for fir
ing a mutual uud telling broadside all along the
line. For that date both noted and notorious
speakers hare been engaged, and It was thought
thin from that time on to Uie.Octobcr-day elec
tion would bo entirely suillcicut to convert the
Intelligent voter
AND BULLDOZE TUB IGNORANT ONE.
One of tiic things which 1 have ascertained
the most definitely is that, as yet* except in cer
tain localities, the interest taken by the com
mon people in the coming contest Is not so
great as would bo Judged by newoaper-artldes
published both within and without the State.
The nation very naturally looks upon Ohio as
the State to sound the keynote for 1860,
and upon its complexion on election-day
is thought to hang a momentous tale.
The constant agitation Irotn Washington
and the East soon began to make Uie local poli
ticians appreciate Uicir Importance, aiid they
commenced the work of organization. Charllo
Foster, who had ever been remarkable as an
organizer, began to visit Uie heretofore uncan
vassed districts, and, utter shaking hands aud
gutting thoroughly acquainted, began’ to make
telling speeches. Gen. Ewing sat very uneasily
in his chair in Congress, and cursed .the days
until the ill-advised extra session of Congress'
was over and he was released to meet his foo
upon his native heath. Hastening hero after a
hasty conference uud bargain with the wizard
of Cirnmcrcy Park, he jumped Into the har
ness, and, with the panting avldltv which is tra
ditional with the war-horse, he began the work
making daily and nightly speeches. Both can
didates have kept this kind of work up during
alt the dog-days of July and early August, a
thing never known before In the history of the
Slate. The number of political speeches that
have thus far been made Is ’
SOMimilNO TUULY HBHAnKADI.E.
Doth candidates, if anything can bo judged ny
appearances, ore considerably jaded, but still
huvo Uu-lr respective arguments pretty trull
conned and learned by rote, to be used at tho
greater mass-meetings which shall assemble
later in the towns and cities.
Again, the principal interest in the campaign
thus far centres in todal Issues. In some eoun
tles it. Is over the nominees for tho Legislature,
In others over the county olllees. The wisdom
or unwisdom of the selection of county tickets
wtll have very much mure to do with the gen*
cral result than would at ilrst be thought pos
sible. In a good many places this (s appreciated,
but in oiln rn there Usomewhat of a disposition
to let the matter go by the by.
Tlm subject of must interest in Ohio politics
for several years past has been tlm Greenback
movement. Last year it seemed to grow with
tlm season with the rapidity and rankness of 9
pigweed. The claim of the leaders was that
they should sweep the whole State. To tho
non-partisan resident of Toledo and Lucas
County it seemed almost likely that the unboly
claim would lie milled. There had been nothing
in Urn State for years tliat so captivated 'he
minds ul a certain class of the community:
nothing which so appealed to that dement o C
their uuture which ilrst met a responsive
chord. Tlic slavery agitation was far ofl
and cool in its nature compared
to It. This came Into Uic bumble homes, and
promised plenty and comfort to hungry mouths.
Many deeper-thinking minds than those pos
sessed by the Ohio Grccnbackcrs bud been draft
contused and then corrupted by tlm sophistries
of the scheme, and fur the time the opinion
spread like contagion. Of course the greater
detection was from the Republican .ranks, as
that party was in power, aud, therefore, respon
sible lor the bsrd times, liut the result of re
sumption has been marvelous in dispelling tho
Greenback illusion. Thu foundation of tbu
party hud been removed, aud tiie superstructure
crumbled. This fact has beuu noted by tbo
Democratic papers, and
MUCH UNFOUNDED SOLACB
has been derived from the fact, as they claim.
Hint tho disbanded Grcenbackers will large-y
Unu shelter beneath the Democratic fold, and
support Boft-Monev Kwlng. Never was greater
mistake made. The soft-money idea is largely
dead, because there Is no lunger any possible
reason for us existence. Tbo former advocates
are aware of this, and ore converted to the ad
vantages of resumption. They were Urcuu
buckers iu tbu Ilrst place simply- be
cause their faith was nut strong enough
to wait fur the trial. They will never take up
with u party which is evidently loft-monuy
simply us a fraud and s snare. They largilv
came from the Republican ranks In the beg n
mug and naturally seek tlielr old aJUilutluua
again.
Another point which will naturally solidify
the drifting Ureenhackcrs with the llepabucaa
party is the fact timt U standing out mute
prominently every day that the attempt will ha
made by the Democracy tho moment they are
sutlklcmlv stromj to cither rule or ruiutua
nation. Thu work of the past session of tho
Confederate Congress emphasized this laA, and
U pointed out by many a man who U sevUh g
new party aUlllatlons aa Uic one thing of uv. i
shadowing Importance. These men were al
ways Itepuldkau In soutlmeat and tradition*
They simply doubted on tnutmo question of the
possibility of resumption, and when that was
successfully accomplished they rejoiced, m
many Instances, as much aa the strouy*
est advocates of bard mouey. Now iliac
the Question la pretty well settled
It would be as hard for these former Uepuhllc*
ans lo Join with the party which iu the recent
