DEMOCRATIC NOMINEES fob sheriff, PURNAL J. LYNCH. FOR CORONER, JOSEPH II. KIRK. There is no question that all good people aud the Evening Journal up hold the laws governing the Sabbath day. But we are firmly convinced that the annual encampments need not be abol lehed to prevent the desecration of the We are sure t hat Bishop Cole does not contemplate that result yet Sabbath. nan tho enemies of the N. G. D. will nse his letter to accomplish that purpose. The Kennett Advance says: People who have been wondering what bas been keeping Brother Blaine so quiet for a year or two, have discovered that be baa been thinking. When tha Ides of November ahall have thrown the Republican party ont of control of Congress It will be evident that the people have been thinking that taxation does not produce wealth ; that a restricted trade ia not the best trade ; that to get trade we must give trade; that reciprocity it only fnirneaa, justice, and a natutal law of trade. In another column will be found tha colloquy between Senator Carlisle and Senators Hlscock, Dawes and Aldrtob on the tariff, in which Senator Carlisle demolished some of tha pet theories of the protectionists. (Senator Carlisle met and repelled all tbelr assaults and showed that ha waa not only thoroughly familiar with all the details of the ques tions at issue, but that he is able to enter the larger field of polities! economy amd give reasons, facts and figures for bis belief. This colloquy contains ths Arguments for a lowsr tariff and shows the false data on which ths pleas for an increased tariff are baaed. It is one of tha most notabls and admirable speeches against the In iquitous tariff laws ever delivered. It was extemporaneous. No other man In tha United States oonld have withstood the puzzling questions of these three able attorneys for the protected Interests. Mr. Carlisle floored all tbree of the Sena tors. Rhcoumending and advising the leaders of the Bepnblican party in Con gress to pass the Force bill, tbo George town Bepnblican says, that sensible men oppose it ; Because they think it will eliminate the obnoxious assessment law of this ■täte, which Tom Baysrd had 'passed, to defraud Republicans of their rights u citizens of Delaware. • J5uch writing as that indicate» the state to which Bepubllean political writing ha.a descended. Mr. Bayard ia s» statesman of national repntatian. He is too honest to be suspected even of doing anything to defraud or to cheat at the polls or anywhere. His record is the record of an honest, upright, honorable, __ ^ble tfid distinguished man, whose character, attainments and reputation Bave given him the second position in Importance under ose of the most honorable and 'useful administrations this country ever had. Mr, Bayard has been suggested for the Presidency. He wonld fill the Presidential chair. There are no laws in Delaware to 'defraud any body of hie vote or his rights. The man who has not sen so enough to pay his taxes chooses this own position as an outlaw aud an Ignoramus who by bis own admission and fault Is not fit to vote la view of these facts, we submit that this Georgetown paper lowers itself—no natter bow impossible that may seem— by such writing at the above. It is as sisting in debasing the influence ef jour nalism. Even Bepnblican pelitlcs should not demand such writing as tba above. The Delaware City News says: Then why delay the all important ques tion, "How to reduce taxation?" The way is clear. Reduce tha Levy Court, reduce their power, and yon will reduce •nr county taxes. That proposition is net Intelligible, logical or true. Taxes looal and national should always be kept at a minimum rate —the people should not be compelled to pay more than is necessary to support tha G>vernmant economically adminis tered . That ia one of the propositions which this system ef founded. It was into existence to resist nn npon government was called just taxation, Ths Republican party of to-day which upholds the tariff robbery is the legitimst« successor of the Tories who attempted to keep this country under the English yoke. But it will require scientific and rational treatment to reduce taxation. In local affairs there Is no burdensome taxation—the rate la lew and its need and nses are apparent. No robbery is charged aud the county has the credit aud assets of a well-managed financial concern. The only just com plaint «gainst the Levy Court is that it ie an old system. The statement tb\t decrease in the number oi *ierv O ;rt men will decrease tbeir B jb iiaess juuubsr of Levy Court men would reduce Tiously a mistake, since ,t. must be doue sud if done by a less number will give each man of the Court mote power than if done by a greater number. There is no guarantee th&t a less taxation, quicker or better than a larger number. It is not the quantity of officers, but their quality, which is ail important. The Democrats bave pro posed to suggest reform in the system ■»f county 'gov îrnmeut, but they will suggest reform y which will reform. A change is not always a reform. KEEP COOL, BE LOYAL Some interested politicians in Kent oonn'-y are trying to dietnrb the Demo cratic party of Delaware and of the uni verse, by working off their own nurpism calorio. Some of them are in such a state of excitement that they imagine the world is agitated with the political furor which fills their breasts. They are mistaken. There ie a per fectly serene harmony in the Démocratie party and the convention at Dover to nominate a Governor and a member of Congress will show this conclusively. There will be some discussion of the re spective merits of the different candi dates, but there will not be any bones broken. The candidates chosen will be Demo crats and all that Democracy signifies. They will bo able, honest and patriotic. They will bo men in whom the majority of Democrats have the fullest trust aud greatest confidence. The man who object s to them will bo a man actuated by the lowest, meanest aud most selfish motives which can move the traitor's heart. Ho will have no reason for objecting to tbo decision of the majority of the convention, no cause to rebel against it, aud will show a lack of sense and honor in doing so. There are ««mo men who have threat ened to do this. Their threats have been discounted as the threats of a bully are discounted. Threats do not deter loyal, true and brave men from doing right. That is all that tho delegates at Dover can bo expected to do. They are to meet to discuss tho merits of the can didates, Incidentally, bnt really te an nounce the principles of the Democratic party and state their application to local affairs. This is a contest of principles, not of men. Any man who is intelligent,honest and capable, can assert them. No other than that sort of a man has been men tioned. Hence ws are sore to have the right sort of a candidate, no matter what bis name ia. The man who cannot snpport that candidate on a Democratic platform, represeutlng the glorious principles of the Democrat In this crisis Is not a Democrat, not a man worthy of any con sidération on any account. He le ac tuated by motives which are not recog ntzed among honorable men. LETTERS FROM THE PEOPLB BUhep Coleman Explains. To the Editor of tho Ev satso JoOTtoAL. Sin. It Is with no desire simply to justify Myself, but in the interests of fairness, that I trouble you with u fow lines in reply to your editorial comments on my letter, which appeared In your columns on Saturday last. Yon say that I made the mistake of associating the desecration "complained of with the authorities of Camp Biggs." By refer ring to my letter yon will see that I ex plicitly etated that It wae in "connection with tha camping of our soldiers at Brandywine Springs," and as explicitly that I did not know who wag responsi ble. For the wrong placing of implica tions—to quote one other point in your artiele—yon must not hold me account able. I am responsible—aud quite ready to assume all that this fairly Implies— for the allegations contained la my let ter, which I feel all the more warrant able by testimony which has come to my knowledge since the date of my former correspondence.

Wilmington, August 5, 1890. RELIGION AND POLITICS AT CAMDEN. W. Nearly B,C4»(t People There - John B. Nicholson Be.i.—Another Bark Burse. Special Correspondence Evening Joühnxl. Dovsb, August 6 .— The attendance at the Camden camp was, of course, not what it was on Sunday, bet taking day and evening together it reached nearly Watson In the after Dr. 5,000, nevertheless, preached iu tho morning. Bishop Taylor told of his noon experience iu Afriaa. and gave an inter esting history of church work there, to an audience of nearly 3,000. An lu tereating holiness meeting followed iu the afternoon, at which several were converted. In tho evening a revival meeting, well attended, was held aud again there weie many at the altar. Out on the edge of the camp, as nsnal, politics held away, and Kent county leaders were there In force At a meeting to be held to morrow night a list of Peunewill delegates will be named for the Second or Western dis trict of East Dover hundred. Claim is made that the list already published, us Fenuewlll or Reynolds delegates, was never officially made. In the meantime the Baulsbary ticket made last Thurs day night still stands. A good deal of canvassing Is beiug done as to whom the mantle now undisputedly worn by Robert J. Reynolds would drop to in tbo event of Robert J's throwing it off ia convention. That Is the mantle which marks the man aa the choice of Kent county, and but two names are mentioned Those of Daniel M. Ridgely aud John U Nicholson. Daniel M has been spoken of in this correspondence aad John K. Nicholson, as ia well known, is to-day, oae of tho most bril liant men at the bar in the state, except ing none. A thorough scholar, widely traveled, descended from the very heart of the rare old oaken pioneers who first settled Delaware, he can trace back in his family the many men who have swaytd the destinies of this little state in the days of her early history. Tho guberna torial chair of Delaware has held many itlaatrlons men but it is safe to say that It would loss none of its dignity while John R. Nicholson occupied It. There is no Intimation as yet that Robert J. Reynolds even intends to hand the gift over to any one else. 'Mid «11 the bluster that certainly does exist, he pursues ths even tenor of his way, and many knowing ones will be surprised if next Saturday's primaries ) do not give him the majority of Kent's delegates. But it is la ths event of his desiring himself to abdi cate on the day of tha convention, that John 8. Nicholson, Esq , is named with Daniel M. Ridgely to show te tha state that old Kant has much excellent gnber uatorlai timber to select from. T M.

MR. CARLISLE BOUTS THREE SENA TORS. Taken Unaware« In Debate on the Tariff, Senator Carlisle Answers the ljuest ion«, witbitaml» the Attacks of Teree Wily Senators und Makes a Great Speech. Mr. Hlseock—Now, right in that con traction I desire to ask the Senator from Kentucky this question: One year we imported 12,600 bushels ef potatoes with a duty of 15 cents a bushel. Does the Senator tell ma that 13 cents a bushel was added to the American crop in what It sold for In the market?)! f tha Senator's abatement is «orrect every bushel of potatoes that waa consumed In the United States coat tho consumer 13 cents a bushel more because of that dnty. Mr. Carlisle—Yes, sir; 1 say that If 12,BOO bushel» of potatoes were brought from tbo Dotnlnioa of Canada lute the United States and sold In a par ticular market on the American border, American potatoes being sold there at the same time, the American potatoes brought 15 cents a bushel more than they would have brought If the duty had not been placed npon the Canadian article, but it does not help tbo price of American potatoes at uny other place. It is only in that particniar market whore these things are being sold, aud where— as 1 have conceded frequently in discus sions upon this subject—the imposition npon agricultural products may assist the farmers to a certain extent, for a certain period of time, in particular localities, ye» the general effect upon the whole American market ou those products amounts to nothing whatever. The price, In other words, of potatoes along the border of New York near the Canadian line, which may be rai ad tem porarily during a period of scarcity by the Imposition of 15 cents a bushel npon Canadian potatoes and by the Importation of those potatoes aud their sale in that market, does not affect the price of pota toes la Iowa or Michigan or Kentucky, but only in that market where they are beiug sold aud where a temporary scarcity exists. Bat I wish to say further npon this subject of potatoes that they arc scarcely ever imported except daring the period of great scarcity, when the domestic product has been exhausted aud the American producer has no more to sell. Mr. Aldrioh.—We Imported last year nearly 800,000 pounds of bison aud bams, which paid a duty of 3 cents a pound. Now, was the entire American product increased in vaine S cents a pound by that Importation? Mr. Carlisle— Not at all. Mr. Aldrich—Why not? Mr. Carlisle—They were bacon and hams, which do not come Into competi tion with oura at all, beeuase they were of an entirely different character—West phalia hams aud other species of bacon, which onr people desire to proenre and which they cannot proenre at home, just aa we Import Bohemian, Bavarian, and other beer from abroad, notwithstanding the whole country Is flooded almost with beer. Mr. Aldrioh-—The next item in the agricultural schedule is beef,mutton,and pork. Wo Imported a large amount of jeaf, mutton and pork which paid a duty. Mr. Carlisle—Avast amount? Mr. Aldrioh—I said a large .amount— 300,0(0 pounds. Did that raise the price ot beef, mnlton aud pork, or was there no competition? Mr. Carlisle—I make tha same answer to that that I made before, that if the beef, mutton and pork were brought into this country to supply an actual demand, and were of tha same kind aa that which we produce ourselves, aad were sold in oompetlou with them, then in that mar ket they bad the same effect npon tho price, bnt not upon tha general markets of the country. Mr. Aldrich—Why does net that rule apply to all the other artiales in the tariff aobadnlea? Mr. Carlisle—It does. Bnt your Im ported woolen goods, yonr Imported cot ton goods, yonr Imported iron and steel, aud a (hundred other articles I might mention, enter into all the other markets of this conatry, and all over this country they ara being sold in competition with the American product. Mr. Aldrich—Does the Senator from Kentucky mean seriously to say that beef might be imported into the city of New York and put up the price a cent a pound and not affect the price anywhere else? Mr. Carlisle—If Imported in sufficient quantities it would affect the price, but the Insignificant amonnt of tiOt.OOO pounds of beef, mnlton and perk, cover lag in entire period of twelve months, does not affest the price of those articles to any extent whatever, in my judg ment. ment. Now,I shenld like to ask the Senator a question. He contends that the inevitable effect of the Imposition of a high rate of duty upon imported goods is to bring down the price of the goods. Doss bethink he can convince the wool growers of the country that a duty of 50 per cent, npon wool will Increase the price ef that pro duct, while a duty of 100 per cent, upon his clothing will reduce the price of that article? Does ha think that be can convince the farmers of the o*nntry that a duty of 95 cents a bushel upon Imported wheat, which amounts substantially to nothing, will increase ths pries of that article, while a duty of 40 or 50 per cent, npon his cotton and linen clothing will reduce the price ot that? TbU rale must work either one way or tha other. If ths affect of ths imposition of a duty npon im ported goods is to reduce the price either immediately or in a series of years In one ease, it wsol have the same effect In the other. If by imposing a duty of 44 cents a pound, aa the bill proposes, npon certain grades ot woolen goods, and 50 or GO per cent. ad valorem besides, yon ex pect to rednoe the price of tha clothing of the people, how is it possible that yen eau impose# duty of 11 and 13 cents a pound npon the raw wool and not reduce tba price of that article too? Sol might go through the whole list of yonr schedules in this bill. But as I understand the tendency of the questions propounded by the Senator from Bhode Island, his opinion is that tho Imposition of a duty upon potatoes and beef, and mutton and pork, dues not increase the price. Do I understand the Senator to contend for that? Mr. Aldrich—The Senator from Ken tucky did not understand me te make any suggestion in that direction. The Senator from Kentucky had laid down a rule, wbicb he stated very clearly, that where Imported articles were brought here and competed with similar articles of American production, the price of the whole mass was increased to tha extent of the dnty, and I was trying to make an application of that clear principle which he laid down to two or three articles which he says are exceptions to the general rale, as I now understand. Mr Carlisle—I did not say they were exceptions. I said the Importations in those cases were so Insignificant, and the market In which they were sold in this they did ughost country w»3 so i'r .'<■ not affect the prie the country. Mr. EUsioîi -A'gut Ur*« l âvfiitv to ask the Senator from Kentucky another question.! ask whether in his judgment the price here, so far as Its effect by the tariff is concerned—that is, upon goods which are protected and which need pro tecton—is affected at all by the volume of production here? That is to say, take an article which is protected here, we will say like sugar, of which an incon f -quentlal amount is produced in this country,and Task whether the tailff has a different effect upon that than it has upon an article of merchandise, cotton if you please,or wool If you please,in which nine tenths—I am not stating nine tenths of the actual amount, but to illustrate It—in which nine-tenths of the value produced is the production of the United States; I ask if there is any difference there in the effect of the tariff upon the price? All writers on political enconomy say that there is, and the case of the potatoes illustrates the difference. Mr. Carlisle—t have no doubt that the price of all articles is affected to a greater or less extent by the amount of produc tion of those articles, not only in this country, hut throughout the world Mr. Hlscock—I do not want to carry It to the whole world. 1 want to conflue it to the United Htales, where the great mess of the consumption Is of,the Ameri can product.I will put this ease also;Sup pose a duty is 60 per ceut., is there a difference between that ease, if it is 50 per cent, and a case where it is 80 per cent? Is there a difference if it is 10 per cent? Or Is it an iron rule? I undertake to lay that the domestic price here of goods on the like of which a heavy duty !a Imposed, if the larger consump tion la of the American goods, is not affected by the duty. It may be carried to suck an extent that tha tariff, practi cally, has no effact upon the domestic price, Mr. Carlisle—To gratify the Senator from New Tork, 1 will omit the rest of the world and confine my answer to this country alone. I repeat, then, that I have no donbt that the prices of articles are affected to a greater or less extent by the amount of production in this country; that Is to say, as the production increases the price will decrease If oom petion is free and if there is no combina tion to prevent or obstruct it ; and in tha case supposed by the tieaator from New York of sugar and woolen goods, which I believe he mentioned Mr. Hlscock—I mention woolen goods, bnt I do not undertake to state,of course, ths proportion ef the consumption of woolen goods which are produced here— that is, the amount of the American pro duetleu which Is here consumed—but simply taking it that 90 per cent. Is produced here that is consumed, I asked whether it would hare a different effect upon the prise than it would if only 10 per cent, of the woolen goods consumed in Amerioa were produced in America. Mr. Carlisle—I agree with the Senator from New York that there is no iron rule upon this subject, aud there can be none. What I was about to say was that while the tendency is inevitably to a diminution of prices, with the Increase of production with free cempetlou, yet until you have reached the point where the domestic production Is snffisient to supply the whole or substantially the whole of the home demand, the price is not affected. In the case of engar, we produce only about one-ninth or one-tenth sf the domestic consumption, and the re mainder of It is Imparted, part of it free trom the Hawaiian Islands aud the rest subject to duty. In the ease of woolen goods, we produce a larger part of the domsstio consumption and import the smaller part. Now, whenever we reach the point where the domestic production of sugar, woolen goods, or cotton goode is sufficient to supply tha domestic de mand, and there are no combinations, so that prices come down, importations must diminish or cease. So, then, we come back to tha original proposition, that so long as tbesa im portations continue and the duties are paid upon them, and the foreign articles contins» to be sold lu the American mar ket In competition with the American production, tha conclusion Is inevitable that tha whole or substantially the whole amonnt of the duty has been added te tha price Jof the American artiele. It may not always be added, aud it does not always follow that, because there is au Importation of woolen or any other hind of goods therefore the duly has been added to the price of the domestic article, because it may happen that the importation .does not actually compete with ithe domestic product—on account of some actual or fancied difference in the vaine, on account of the taste of the people for a foreign article of a cer tain kind in preference to the American article of the same kind, although tha American artiele may be in fact the best. But whenever the conditions are equal and the articles are of the same kind or substantially of the same kind, and the duties ara being paid and th# articles sold here in competition at a price which will pay for the cast abroad and refund the duties and charges, the American article must be selling at the .same or substantially the same price. That Is the rule which I stated, and If the Senator from Rhode Island or the Senator from New York can show that it Is not correct I shall be very glad to bear them. I think no business man In this country will contend for an instant that he can go Into a market and sell his products for $1 a pound, for Instance, $1 a bushel unless similar products of ether people offered far sale In the same market are bringing the same price. You might as well attempt to convince the American farmer that he can take his wheat te Europe and sell it for $1.50 a bushal while Russian and other wheat of as good a quality Is selling for $1 a bushel in the same market, as to at tempt to convince him that we can im port $53,000,000 worth of woolen goods and sell them here for $90,000,000 unies» the same quantity and quality of domes tic goods are selling at the same price. 1 bad net the slightest Idea ef saying te tha Senator anything In response from Nevada until after I rose, but* the statement made by him that Great Brit ain taxes her pasple under her customs law* about the same amount per capita tbit wo tax our people seemed to me to require some answer. If the taxes im poted by this bill when it shall become a law eonld all go Into the public Treas ury and be utilized for publie purposes then I could see tho propriety aad Jus tice of making such a comparison as the Senator has attempted. Mr. Aldrich—1 de not Intend to pro long this discussion, bnt I want to say just a word 1« answer to the last sugges tion of the Senator from Kentucky. It is true that we import $53,000,000 worth of woolen goods into this country, but a large proportion of those woolen goods do not come within the rule laid dewn by the Senator from Kentucky, In other words, they do not compete with any domestic products. The woolen goods which are Imported ate of a different class and at a price at whieh they are not made in this country, and therefore there is no competition. Thera is another large amount ef woolen goods produced in this country upou which there is no competition fr.m abroad and upon whieh the price is fixed by domestic competition and not by fer eizn competition. Mr. Carlisle—I have admitted both tha Senator's proposition». 1 have admitted tliat MheBevet the deuieaVi? produçt wa8^ sufficient to supply the domestic demand and competition was free the price would go down ; but 1 stated that then impor tations would cease, and I admitted that, although woolen, so called, might ba im ported to a certain extent, yet it might happen that the whole or a part would not compete with our woolen goods, and tberelorc would not effect our prUes. Mr. Dawes—I was about to put an Interrogatory to the Senator which he has in part answered at this moment. I should like to Inquire of him if this rule does not underlie the whole question— supply and demand? Whenever the sup ply in the market shall be greater than the demand the Importer will be obliged to pay the duty, and whenever the de mand is greater than the supply the con sumer will be ebllged to pay the duty. So it comes back to this question, Can we »apply our own market, or are wo dapendiug upon producers abroad to supply our market? If we eau supply our own market, then whoever brings any product into th&t market in competition with us must pay whatever It costs to get It there. If we can not supply our own market and an importer come» in here with the article needed, then he is at liberty to put upon his goods what it cost him to get them here. Mr. Carlisle—We shall never reach that fortunate condition of affairs when we can compel the foreigner to payeur taxes and support our Government, and that is what the Senator from Massa chusetts supposes. 1 admit that when ever your domestic production is equal to your supply, as the Senator has said, If there Is no combination to prevent competition, prices will fall, aud if the importer then brings his articles here bo must pay the duty ; but he will not bring them ; he can not afford to bring them. He can not afford to pay the duty out of his own pocket and not add it to the price of the article be is to sell. The business of importation wonld cease at once if that wore the condition of affairs. Mr. iDawes—Does not that depend upon how much It costs him to produce the article? If it does not cast him to produee it in his own place of produc tion any more than with the duty added what it cost to prodnoa it here, then he can afford to pay the duty. Mr. Carlisle—But the Senator forgets that if the dnty was not imposed the people of this country would get that article at the foreign price, augmented only by the charges needed to bring it here. Mr. Dawes—As I said, it comes back to this:,Whether wo can supply onr own market or not. If we can supply our own market, we can command the price in onr own market. Mr. Carlisle—Whenever we can snp ply onr own market at prices as low. or substantially as low, as it can be sup plied from other parts of the world, then there will be no importations into this country ; aud thst is all there Is in the question. is or or If to In question.
