A Masterly Speech.
WATERVILLE, Me., Aug. 29.—A public
mass meeting was held to-night, and af
ter Governor Burleigh made a speech,
President A. W. Small of Colby univer
sity, introduced as ''the leader of the re
publican party and the famous advocate
of an interesting and progressive protec
tive tariff, Hon. James G. Blaine." In
regard to the national questions, Blaine
said: "I wish to deolarethe opinion that
the United States has reached a point
where one of the highest duties is to en
large the area of its foreign trade. Un
der the benificent policy of protection we
have developed a volume of manufactures
whioh, in many departments, overruns
the demands of the home market. In
the field of agriculture, with the im
mense propulsion given in it by agricul
tural implements, we can do far more
than produce breadstuffs and provisions
for our own people nor would it be am
bitious destiny for so great a country as
ours to manufacture only what we can
consume or to produce only what we can
eat. We are already, in many fabrics
and in many products, far beyond that,
and
OUR GREAT DEMAND
is expansion. I mean expansion of trade
with countries where we can find profita
ble exchanges. We are not seeking an
nexation of territory. Certainly we do
not desire it, unless it should come by
the volition of the people who might ask
the priceless boon of a place under the
flag of the Union. I feel sure that for a
long time to come the people of the
United States will be wisely content
with our present area, and not launoh
upon any scheme of annexation. At the
same time, I think we should be unwisely
content if we did not seek to engage
in what Young Pitt so well termed
'ANNEXATION OF TRADE.'
For nearly thirty years now the United
States has had the great advantage of a
protective tariff, by far the longest un
broken period that its industrial policy
has been in force since the federal gov
ernment was organized. Happily the
great majority of our people, without
strict regard to party lines, believe that
the results to the American people from
the protective policy has been incalcul
able, aggregating in a quarter of a cen
tury of national and individual wealth
beyond that ever dreamed of before in
history af the world". Mr. Blaine then
briefly recited what he termed
"THE VICTORIES OP PROTECTION."
and next spoke of a system of reciproci
ty, not in conflict with the protective
tariff, but supplementary thereto, and
presenting a field of enterprise that will
richly repay the effort and energy of the
American people. We shall find it in
structive and valuable to examine into
the sources of our imports and the desti
nation of our exports, and to strike a
balance between the two. Take last
year, 1889. In that year our whole ex
ports to all countries in the three con
tinents of Europe, Asia and Africa and
to Australia, Canada and Hawaii
amounted, in round numbers, to $658,
000,000 and our imports from all those
countries amounted, in round numbers,
to $529,000,000, showing that from that
vast trade we had a balance of $129,000,
000 it our favor, equivalent to that
amount of gold among our people. But
when all accounts are closed, instead of
having $129,000,000 in our favor, we had
a balance of $13,000,000 against us for
our foreign trade. We must, therefore,
have lost $142,000,000 in our commerce
with countries outside of those to which
1 have referred. Where could we have
found such
A IIARQE ADVERSE BALANCE?
Let me tell you, we lost $41,000,000 in
Cuba, from whioh our imports were $52,
000,000 and to whioh our exports were
only $11,000,000. Forty-one million is a
pretty large Bum to lose in one island in
a single year. In the republic of Brazil
we lost $51,000,000. Our imports from
Brazil were $60,000,000 our exports to
Brazil were $9,000,000. In Mexico we
lost $10,000,000. Imports from Mexico
were $21,000,000 our exports were $11,
000,000. To sum it all up, our imports
from the countries south of us, both in
sular and continental, on this hemis
phere, were $216,000,000. The balance
against us in our trade with those coun
tries, therefore, is $142,000,000, exceed
ing our gains from all the rest of the
world. By no figure of speech can we
FLATTER OURSELVES INTO THE BELIEF
that our trade with our American neigh
bors is in a prosperous condition. How
can this state of affairs be remedied?
You have heard a great deal said within
the past ten years by our democratic
friends about the iniquity of the repub
lican party keeping up the war tariff.
As a matter of fact the war tariff haB not
been kept up but has been amended over
and over again until the revision of 1883
left Bcaroely any trace of the actual tariff
that,was in operation at thecloseof the
war and for a few years afterwards.
During the war we were compelled to tax
almost everything in air, in water, on
earth and under earth, lie necessities
of the government were so great that we
oould allow aearoely anything to be im
ported without paying tribute* and I
think that no, patriotic man can deny,
it
that that was a wise policy, We were
not then studying the philosophy of
trade relations, but how to save the life
of the nation.
MONEY WAS A PRIMAL NECESSARY,
and we seized it whenever we oould
reach it lawfully, but during the last
eighteen years a great change- has been
made. So entirely has the war tariff
been abolished, that in the fiscal year
ending June 30,1889, the articles admit
ted free were considerable more than one
third of all imports. To be exact, im
ported articles that paid duty exceeded
$488,000,000 in value, and imported arti
cles that paid no duty exceeded $250,000,
000 in value. The inevitable tendency
is, Lthink, toward increase of the free
list. Our great mistake was made when
we began to repeal the war duties on so
large an amount of imports. Any duty
repealed was a favor and advantage to
the exporting country, and we have
asked nothing in return. Instead of
this course (which, I must say, was one
of carelessness and wastefulness of both
political parties), every repeal of duty
should have been preoedea by a most
thorough investigation, and whenever it
was found practicable to export anything
from the United States, and thus
ESTABLISH RECIPROCAL TRADE,
it should have been done. I do not, of
course, intend to declare or to imply that
we could have secured the free admis
sion of $256,000,000 of American pro
ducts into the countries whose products
we purchase annually to that Amount.
The rioher country cannot expect to get
complete reciprocity in amount from
countries less wealthy. But whatever
we should have received would have
been dear gain, as in all future repeal
of duties whatever we may be able to get
will be clear gain. It is not a question
of setting deliberately to work to estab
lish reciprocal exchanges. But with all
duties we have thus far repealed, it has
been a question of whether we should
get something or get nothing. We have
chosen with our eyes shut to get nothing.
1 hope, now, with our eyes open, that we
shall in the future choose to -get some
thing." He did not think this policy of
reciprocity could be made to mean ulti
mate free trade. Other speakers fol
lowed.
Xires, Incendiary and Otherwise.
MINNEAPOLIS, Sept. 1.—About 10
o'clock this morning flames broke out in
the basement of the premises just
vacated by the Tribune in moving into
its new office. The firemen had a stub
born fight and at 11 o'clock the fire
seemed to be under control, but a few
minutes later it broke out again with
great fury. The damage is estimated at
$8,000. The Tribune had removed all
their property from the place.
COMO, Col., Sept. 1.—Wolford house
burned this morning. The fire caught
in a room on the seconafloor, whioh was
occupied by an invaUdheho, it is thought
overturned a lamp and started the fire.
Although the department was on
hand promptly the fire was under
too great headway to possibly
save the building. Three persons
were burned to death and their remains
were found in the ruins. One has been
identified as Wm. Prior, who has been
employed by the Western Union Tele
graph company as line repairer, but the
others are unknown.
ERIE, Pa., Sept 1.—Late this after
noon fire broke out in Bausoherd Bros.'
planing mill in the heart of the city. The
mills and stock were entirely destroyed,
entailing a loss of $125,000 on plant and
finished stock. The residences of Alder
man Curtze and Mrs. Metz were also de
stroyed, adding $20,000 to the loss. The
insurance was but $15,000. The fire is
believed to have been incendiary.

named Joe Solmon, employed in the
Wheeling Terminal railroad company's

WASHINGTON, Aug. 30.—J. S. Clark
son, first assistant postmaster general,
practically concluded his service in the
postoffice department to-day. The pres
ident much desired his further continu
ance in the place, but Clarkson was una
ble to remain longer. It is stated Clark
son assumed the office in March, 1889,
only at the strong persuasion of the
president, republican national commit
tee and leading men of the garty, and
that he has remained in it against his
own wishes. Clarkson will very soon as
sume the presidency of the Judson Pneu
matic railway company, which applies
new princiDles to locomotion and to mo
tive power in cities and which is now
building a railway in Washington oity.
In his nearly eighteen montliB in office,
Clarkson appointed 26,675 fourth-olass
postmasters, and established 5,560 new
postoffices, making his record 32,335 in
all. All appointments in the postoffice
department are made up in the office
of the first assistant, and in
the presidential offices 2,217 ap
pointments have been made
during Clarkson's offiicial time, leaving
only 400 of that class of offices unchanged.
This is the largest record in changes and
in the establishment of offices ever made
in the same length of time. A striking
feature is the number of new offices es
tablished. A department official speak
ing of this, said: "In these offices has
been illustrated Clarkson's broad policy
as an official. Of the new offices created,
159 are in the New England states 571 in
the middle states 1,686 in what is called
the nirthwest, extending from Ohio to
Dakota 487 in the mountain and Pacific
coast states, and 3,609, or over half of all,
in the southern states." The men most
prominently named as Clarkson's suc
cessor are M. L. Michner of Indiana, N.
C. Payne of Wisconsin, Chauncey I. Fil
ley of Missouri, John N. Irwin of Iowa,
Samuel Fessendenof Connecticut, W. W.
Morrow of California, and T. 0. Fowler,
the chief clerk of the office.
Chicago Carpenters May Attain Strike.
CHICAGO, Aug. 30.—That there will
be a general strike of the union carpen
ters on Monday is now considered a fore
gone conclusion, and the leaders are pre
paring for it President Goldie of the
old bosses association, whioh employs
non-union men, issued an address to the
employes of that association, warning
them of the danger of a strike at this
season of the year and promising them
steady employment if they remain at
work. The carpenters have enlisted the
the active sympathy of the bricklayers'
union, said to be the most powerfnl or
ganization in Chicago. As a result of
the conference between the bricklayers
and carpenters, the former will demand
of the Master Builders' association a set
tlement of the carpenters' strike by arbi
tration. The boss carpenters are in a
sense a subordinate part of the Master
Builders association. Should arbitration
again be refused, a general strike in the
building trades here is not altogether im
probable. Such an event would directly
involve 25,000 workingmen.
