The^man who would know what merit^there may have been in the struggle^which ended in lialmaceda's detent^must be a patient man and wait until^a more quiet time in the affairs of the^Smith American republic permits the^truth to be told.

The law, a - might have^been expected when It was p assed ^in^the Interests of morality.^ as iti p. onto^ters alleged, is virtually a dead letter,^the only effort to entorc it being put^forth by a racing in in way frankly ad^^mits that he bii-es his action not upon^any abstract conception of m ir.ility^but ii|^o!i purely coniine vial grounds,^'ibis man, the lanmus l^^vir, has a^big contract on hand, rather lugger^than he seems to have been able to ful^^fill li s light with his chief enemy,^one lie I.acey, has reached a llage that^is simply gmto-ii ie. Lastyear's cmipaigti between Dwyer^and the outside pool sel.crs is a mutter^of familmr h'story to horsemen,^Pwyircut out the wires and turned^the operators lrotn the track, lie I,acey^then lured messengers who curried the^result of the rueis to telegraph o| era-^tors outside. Dwyer next issued ordeis^tlia' nobody should quit the iuclosure^until *.lie rac.ng was over for tl* day.^ami after considerable litigation MM^the point of detaining people against^their will, he avoided further questions^of legality by compelling buyers of^tickets to enter a contract agreeing^that the gate should Le closed between^i snd 5 o'clock. Theclmnrx bus been reached on the^llrooklyu Jockey club *MM Ihvyi r^put up a fence lifty feet high. lie I.aeeyrented a neighbor ng tree which^was still higher and from the top^branches of which his agent was able^to see what was gjing on. The Wes^^tern 1'nion company ulao took a hand^in the light ly obtaining posussion of^a hotel near the fence. On top of the^hotel a wooden tower was run up forty-^two feet, overlooking the course.^During the past season, moreover, car^^rier pigeons have been used and rub^^ber balls holding written reports have^been thrown over the fence by Da-^l.ncey's agents stationed inside. In^fact there have li.-en no end of schemes^and counter-schemes until the contest^suggest a nothing so much as a roaring^farce. Thegeneral public takes very little^interest in the row except in so far as^it uHerds aniusi m tut. If the law had^the bacKing of public veutiment, Mr.^Dwyer's perpli xilit s could easily hi^solved; but the absurdity of a statute^which says pool-selling is wrought one^place and right in another is too ap^^parent. It does not recommand itself^to any class of society, and, with no^friends to support it except a few^whose sole interest is of a pecuniary^nature, small wonder is it that the po^^lice wmk at and even go M f ir as to^assist In the law's v.o'.ation. The whole^business is an illustration of (hu idiotic^legislation with which many states^have been iilllicted of recent ycarj. Thosewl.o know anything about^what is going on in llutte will agree^with the Mintu;/ Journal when it says^that ^the | robabilities lor pure air in^tho city during the coining winter are^remote.^ They ure remote indeed; the^probabilities are that llutte will have^to sutler during the coming winter us^it never U'lore has suffered from the^smoke plague. The outlook Is for^^bidding to everybody in the city except^to the small number of people who can^turn the nuisance to account as an^easy excuse for mouths of resilience in^distant cities. In the opinion of the^Miniuij Journal the smoke question^ought to be. taken up at a mass meet^^ing of citizens. That is a good enough^suggestion, but If former mass meet^^ings of Unite people are anything to^go by, the one proposed by uur con^^temporary would literally eud ill^sineke. china OR canada. Thedecision of Judge Knowles svai^that a lot of Chinamen who^slipped into this country across the^( anadian border should be sent back^to the country ^whence tl.ey came,^ as^the law duvets, and Judge Knowles^decided that, the country ^whence they^came^ is China. This decision was^highly satisfactory to everybody here^^about, and Marshal l'uray hustled the^Chinamen to San Francisco for ship^nient across the Pacific. I'nderthe conclusions reached last^week by the treasury department at^Washington this plan will not work.^The department has affected to be^much in earnest in its efforts for the^exclusion of the Chinese. A large^force of government detectives has^been on guard along the Canadian^border, and the effort of these men has^been to turn back the tide of Celestials^which has been Mowing in from the^nonunion. S-veral weeks ago Attor^^ney (ietieral Miller decided that the^exclusion act permits the treasury de^^partment to ship back to China the^immigrants who, in evasion of the^law, steal into this country by way^of Canada. In behalf of some^of the Chinamen n test case^was made at Detroit and, as far as this^decision goes, it ends the crusade^against the Cuine.se, Judge Swan, of^the Idiited States district court, hold^^ing that Canada is the country whence^they MM and it is the country to^winch they are to le shipped back.^The department al Washington says it^must accept this ruling, that there is^no appeal, and that nothing can be^done until congrtss acts in the matter Threeor four days ag'^, Acting Sec^^retary Spuuldiiig of the treasury de^^partment said that if th^ lower courts^w ished to construe the law sa as to en^^courage Chinese immigration, the^treasury wool I givj up elforts to ex^^clude the immiitrauts until congress^takes action. This ending of the con^^troversy means much to Canada ill the^way of revenue, ns the Dominion will^now become a thoroughfare for China-^Mai en route to this country, every^one of whom pays S.Vi us head lax to^Camilla. Four shiploads of Chinamen^arrive at Vancouver every month.^There were T.'.HH' Chinamen lauded^from January I to July l.^^ last, and 7.-^UiM were distilled to the I nited States.^Canada's incomepn the trathe lor this^period was |MI,alQi The activity of^the treasury detectives and officials has^been the only thing which has in any^way hunted the Mi thus far, bill^with the acceptance of the swan de^^cision as final the treasury agents are^brought to a standstill, and the bars^are practically thrown down for the iiicouiingChliiaiiie.i. .i InOhio. I'oraker is lighting Senator^Sherman al every turn. It was stier-^man who started out to make free^coinage the leading issue in the cam^^paign. Headers ol the Sianp w:t^ will^remember how earnest the discussion^in the federal senate was when, t year^ago, Mr. Sherman and Mr. Stewart got^into a personal controversy over the^act of lsT.'t wl ereby stiver was demon-^r'lreil. Mr. Stew art insisted, in his^persona! controversy wall Shenn tiv^that the thing was done in the dark,^and that the people were nrs.ed at the^time the bill was passed. (If course,^Mi. S lermun d'Miied this charge, lirst^in thesenate and afterward on the^Ohio stump. N ^w comes Foraker,^wlio b only ambition is to elect a legis^^lature that wiil defeat Shenn in. ai d he^says that ^outside of a limited few,^Mk aly in congress or out of congress^knew anything about the bill ot ls73. Thisis a slap at Sherman who will^probably get into a bitter controversy^with the man who is trying to break^him down. It all ought to be grist for^Campbell's mil'. Chicago'sproposal to ssk congress forfive million dollars for the world's^fair finds very little favor outside of^the Windy City's corporate limits.^The statements of the responsible^representatives nf the state of Illinois^and the city of Chicago on the floor of^congress during the light for the loca^^tion of the fair are now cast in tbeir^teeth. They said in effect that Chi^^cago did not ask a dollar lrom any^outside source to bear the expenses of^the exposition, and that, if necessary,^her business men were ready to sub^^scribe twenty-five millions to make the^lair all that it should b ^. The fact of^the matter is there is a good deal of^difference between promise und fulfill^^ment, between subscriptions and hard^cash. Chicigj's spirit was willing^enough but her Mesh is subject to the^universal tailing. STILLFUND OF Trlfc UAME.
