The three "Ps" of the Republican
campaign stand for protection, piracy,
plunder. The Republicans do not admit
that iu public, but they enacted them in
tbe McKinley bill In private.

Chairman Carter lacks two qualities
which Quay possesses to n remarkable
degree—silence aud sense. Nobody ex

Cable dispatches announce that:
"The cattle pest has spread to thirty

The renojuination of Governor Russell
In Massachusetts by the Democrats does

There are other chills in this ^campaign
than those which emanate from candidate
Jennie Ryan, of New York, who says
«he is fifteen but who appears to be old

mother and took Paris green because she
did not have enough dresses. It is st range
that she should want a shroud. She

pumped and then sent to prison.

XL n Australian ballot has destroyed
the Republican industry of compelling
men in factories to vote at the dictation
and in the interest of the bosses it will
have done as good a thing as a destrnc

We should have votes and tin plate, but
we can get on without the Republican
fraud attachments.
It is suggested that Weaver's great
chance to get even with the egg
throwers in Alabama is to write a proc
lamation that would disrupt the south.
The value of that suggestion is not en
fi hanced by the knowledge that it was
produced ana promulgated by Murat
" Halstead About the best course for
General Weaver to pursue is a course
that will take his violent and vigorous
mouth away from the south.
PANICKY reports from Hamburg de
clare that tbe cholera is on the down
grade, but for fear that we may feel too
safe and hpppy they warn us that an
epidemic of typhus fever is ready to take
it* place and possibly march over to this
eonntry. If the people persevere in
sanitary measures to prevent cholera
they will escape any other disease. If
the cholera, which is the most persistent
and resistless of all epidemics, can be
avoided, we shall be safe from ail other
less dangerous diseases. But we are not
safe from cholera yet.- It may appear
hero next summer.
Nancy Hanks is faster than ever and
Robert Bonner is probably sirkor than
ever notwithstanding his prophecy that
the trotting record would be reduced to
3 minutes. Ho expected Maud S not

Nancy cannot wait for Maud. Maud is
too slow, her record will uot, kpep her iu

Nancy has surprised ber driver. Doble
himself did not expect ber to make tlie
mile in less than 2 07. The wonderful

half mile at 1.02{, the three quarter at
1.821 or 21*J seconds for the third

any other trotter or pacei before.
Tub recommendation of John Morley
that Parliament should appoint a com
mission to examina into the abuse and
the question of tlie eviction of Irish
tenants is an expedient only, but prob
ably it Is a wise one. With the radical
differences iu the parties themselves aud
the dissent ions among the Irish members,
it would probably be impracticable,if uot
impossible, to unite tlie diverse elements
of the party in power—the power which
secured the election of Gladstone—upon
any measure of reliof. Possibly all that
can be done is to nurse the patient well
and keep him alive. Any radical treat
ment might kill him; it would surely re
tard a reeovory that, seems to be pro
ceeding slowly to convalescence now.
The circulai ion of the Evening Jour
nai. is steadily increasing. This city
does not deuiaud grout efforts from news
papers, hut it lias recognized and uc
corded substantial approval to tlie
efforts of tlie Evening Journal All
the improvements that have been made
lmve been warranted by that increasing
appreciation and increasing business.
The Evening Journal lias more readers
than any newspaper over published in
Wilmington. Its readers are of the
class of intelligent, thinking people
whose interests are here and who buy
their goods hero. Hence the Evening
Journal is the best and cheapest ad
vertising medium here. Tho merchant
or tho business man who fails to recog
nize the merits of this paper stands in
ids own light and deliberately rejects the
paper that tho people read and appreciate
as a means for recommending and in
creasing his businesa.
In speaking at Washington, Fa., Me
Kinley talked of sheep and referred to
the tariff law as paying especial attention
to the wool industry. It does. An ex
tract from Colonel McClure's Bpeecli in
another column shows what it lias ae
complisbed and what interest Pennsyl
vania lias in the sheep, wool and billy
goat industries. There are no statistics
on the billy goal industry, bi-cause there
is no industry, but McKinley puts a tax
of 12 ceuts a pound on the goat's hair
just tbe same. If tho farmers or open
lot grazers of the festive tin-can masti
gator are realizing any benefit from the
protection afforded wages in tlie goat
branch of industry, Mr. Harrison failed
and Mr. Peck refused to mention it.
Since the McKinley guide to prosperity
added its duty to wool and woolens,
woolen goods have increased in price an
average of 25 per cent, and wool has
fallen in price 8 or 4 cents on the
pound. The number of sheep lias de
creased 20 per cent, in Ohio aud while
Pennsylvania had over 4,000,000 sheep in
1868, she has about 1,000,( 00 only now.
Referring to the oft -mentioned absurd
] ity of sending Major McKinley to Phila
delphia to convince the people there of
the beauty and harmony of the McKinley
guide to prosperity the New York Sun

A conservative community like Phila
delphia likes a conventional and decorous
, a set oration, guiltless of sur
and elegantly uncoutemooraneons.
Such a speech Major McKinley ma'ies
this year. It is an excellent speech, and
detracts nothing from the reputation of
its author; but it bus little more runner
tion with the living ami salient issues of
this campaign than if it treated of the
alien and sedition acts or tbe impeach

of absurdity. This is another instance
of a fraud upon the workingmen whoso

We print a letter from a colored man
In another column deprecating the em
ployment of force to attempt to secure
for the negro what lie "thought a lack of
■utUcient intelligence and of influential
moral courage has demonstrated to the
country tliut he is Incapable of exercis
ing"—the right of suffrage, lie says
that the franchise is a farce, if it must
be propped up with bayonets or superin
tended by military dictatorship, from
which the negro should withdraw and
await with patience such times as he or
ills childicn should have sufficient
honesty and courage to discharge high
trust with credit and honor and without
the baneful interference of political
tricksters of the lowest order of.dema
gogues and the meanest order of man
kind. White people of all classes feel
an interest in tlio welfare of the negro
but no good people of any class wish to
sec him the prey of men who arc engaged
in ids political and moral debauchery.
That is what his new found friends from
Pennsylvania have become his leaders hi.

Mayor Hugh (In ant says of Mr.
Cleveland's letter of acceptance:
I took up a newspaper this morning to
merely glance over it before breakfast,
as is my habit, but I could not lay the
paper down until I had carefully read
Mr. Cleveland's letter through. The
difference between it and the letter of
President Harrison very strongly forced
itself upon my mind. Mr. Cleveland,
with the directness and force of honest
convictions, makes a terse aud at the
same time business statement of plniu
truth aud self-evident facts, not with
the lengthy, labored, aud specious argu
ment in which Mr. Harrison felt it
necessary for him to indulge in in defence
of his party and its platforms. It is just
the same difference as between coufi
entially telling a positive truth and try
ing to manufacture a pun. On the
tariff question Mr. Cleveland Is so plain
and so sound that all intelligent minds
must thoroughly agree with him. The
financial part of die letter gives the
country the most satisfactory assur
ances of honest money should Mr. Cleve
land again preside over the destinies of
the Republic. The paragraph devoted
to the subject of pensions should please
every veteran in the land. It lifts him
to the prouud position of an especially
und honored position of the Re
public, while the Republican pre
tensions and talk tend to place him in
the light of a pauper to be kept alive by
eleemosynary public aid. The letter is
an admirable document—ono of the best,
1 think, Mr. Cleveland has ever written—
and must make a decidedly fuvurahle iiu
pression on the country. It will go near
the people's heart, and is not a sophisti
cal plea to outwit their judgments.
The staff correspondent of the Morn
ing News, who writes from Delutur that
tlie people of that fire-swept town were
never in need of food, is about as re
liable as the correspondent who fur
nished them with tho details of a "horri
ble holocaust" at tho time of the confia
gration. If anything, the staff corre
spondent is less reliable than the sensa
tional regular correspondent. lie lias
stepped beyond the pale of decency to
malign a man who did more to bring
order out of chaos and to relieve tlie suf
ferings of his fellow townsmen in one
short month than the Morning News
correspondent could do, even if he were
willing, in liis whole life time. That
man is William L. Birman, a man who
forgot his own losses in the commisera

and he bad refused several invitations to
take supper with his neighbors.
Detective Hatton and other men who
helped to dole out relief to the hungry
inhabitants of tbe town, under the rare

of his saw mill last year, and upon it
there was no insurance. Yesterday lie
lost heavily and was compelled to go
i without supper last night, lie lias, how

will be ueed of food for three or four

by the merchants. The committee se

entrusted to them.
Speaker Sirmnu, or "Rill Louder" as
ho is affectionately called by his fellow
townsmen, cannot be affected wherever
he is known by any imputations the in

Home Secretary Asquith Decide» a Deli
cate Question to the Dismay of Tor
[By Telegraph to the Evening Journal.]
London, Sept. 29. —Home Secretary
Asquith has solved a problem by which
the enemies of tho government hoped
that he would be greatly embarrassed.
At a recent meeting the social Democrats
unanimously resolved that "it is desira
ble to reassert the historic right of pub
lie meeting in Trafalgar Square," and
that a demonstration should bo organ
ized for Sunday, November 13, to be held
in the square.
The person who proposed this resolu
tion suggested a parallel between London
aud Ireland in the matter of public
meetings, comparing the policy of Mr.
Mathews in the matter of Trafalgar
Square to that of Mr. Balfour iu rela
tion to nationalist demonstrations.
Another speaker repudiating any desire io
make use of the square for public meetiugs
at times when the assembly of a crowd
would seriously interfere with business
traffic, claimed for the people of London
the right to decide for themselves when
a meeting should be permissible. He
added an assurance that the members of
the federation were quite determined to
hold the proposed meeting and "would
not be influenced by what anybody else
The Tories hoped that this would put
Mr. Asquith into a dilemma but today it
was announced that the Home Secretary
had decided to permit meetings in Tra
falgar Square during times of political
and social crises and that tbe home office
would shortly issue by-laws on the sub
ject. _ __
