Tns conversion of Wayne MacVeagh was not accomplished by getting on a subsidized paper and bootlicking for a foreign mission. One of the papers announces that "Whilelaw Reid scores Cleveland." We should be suspicious of Cleveland if Reid had praised him The legs and arms of the Republican First Voters glitter in their gorgeous informs but not a glint of literary ability comes from their brains. Th* secret ballot will enable a great many Republicans to vote against the McKinley promise of prosperity without losing their places in the shops. It is not incidental, or just, or unavoid able protection that tile Democratic platform condemns, but the "Republican protection" that is denounced as fraud. When General Weaver, made war on women and children in Ipioxville dur ing the war he little thought that chil dren would welcome him with ancient eggs in Georgia. Obkdiar C. Nssbrtt, of Smyrna, seems to have been doing some of the . "wild cat" banking iu a national bank of which the Republican financiers so much enamored. A preacher does not become any holier by going into politics or make politics any purer. On the contrary, quite the reverae^iappens. The preacher is usually the most unscrupulous of all politicians. If one small dose of strong alcohol shortens the time that food remains iu the stomach by more than half an hour the digestive organs of an habitual toper must run with the speed of Nancy Hanks. are Protection money buys gorgeous uniforms for the Republican First Voters' club, but It does not buy courage and ability to meet the Cleveland First Evidently the yoüng Republicans "are not literary." Toe Hartford Courant asks or laments "Isn't Adlai doing more than his fair share of the work?" Tlie answer to that is that he has converted tlie whole of southern Illinois and will jierhaps earn the state In November. Voters In debate. The admirable letter of Wayne Mac Veagh should moke any honorable, Intel lisent and patriotic Republican atop Io I think before casting his Vote in approval ' of the manner in which HarrHon got his nomination and of the McKinley bill. ~ ■ — : Boctkm.k, of Maine, damns the Aus tralian ballot because too many Repub licans haven't time to register and don't have the influence to get paired. He perceives that the Australian ballot will damn his wicked old party. Sam Jones, the alleged preacher, left New York because he could not run rival meetings against the ward bosses. The people like his religion well enough, perhaps in dull times, but they will not forsake politics and beer for it. CarlSchchz at the age of !I2, wrote u letter of admonition and advice to Abra ham Lincoln. One was assassinated by a crank during the heat of a civil tvar; the other lives a monument of cool judgment and a master of English dic tion. As Turkic will be standing room for 35,000 people besides 100,000 seats at the World's Fair, no tired man will be com polled to hold a paper lie fore his eyes to prevent seeing a tired woman looking hair pins and general disgust at him. The woman who will stand near UM), (MM) seats when there is two thirds less room for standing prefers to stand. Rbv. D. O. Chardon, a Boston Uni tarian minister, has discarded his fession in order to become an actor. Ho must have heard of the magnificent success our Rev. Jonathan, preacher politician farmer-author is having by somersaulting around profusely and promiscuously, nothing long. This Is the first time in the history of the country when cabinet officers have gone about the country making stump speeches; it is also the first time in the history of the country when a president was the manager of the campaign, bnt it is the first time when there was so'small a man in the presidential chair. Hence there is really nothing Incongruous or, at least, unexpected In the situation. Cora Tannkk, the actress playing in the West,has telegraphed to her husband, Colonel Sinn In New York, that the ru mor that she was about to separate from him is beneath her notice; she would not dignify it with a denial. It seems evident that Cora believes all of the old chestnuts have been overworked. She means to accomplish the same end by a sensational avoidance of the divorce oourts. pro Nothing much and Tub counties of Sussex and Kent re for the Democratic party; faithful, honest, hard and unremitting work with tlie advantages of the registry and Australian ballot laws will win New Castle county too. Tlie Republicans hsve no hope except from money, the negroes and the deputy marshals. Their ticket is not worthy or popular; it was not fairly chosen ; it d )es not give satis faction; and the record the party has made in office is a succession of scandals and an epidemic of incompetence. Tub papers have been referring to the marriage of Colonel Bullitt and Mrs, Ransom, of Louisville, as "gallant" and "romantic." Colonel Hullelt is 83 years old and poor; Mrs,' Ransom is 54 young, has been married several times and is a millionaire. The gallantry of Colonel Bullitt is probably what plain people would call a "soft snap;" the romance of Mrs. Ransom is probably pity for an old wan who will not last long. At any rate there seems to lie more social and sensational glamour about two old fools thau thetf extravagant conduct deserves. Tub cartoon on the first page today il lustrates "the effect of the McKinley bill." It blindfolds justice, makes her balances useless, force's over-production, binds labor baud and foot and iuvites the starving, pauper, criminal classes of Europe and Asia here to decrease Hie de mand and increase the supply of work ingmeu. There is no possible chauce for the McKinley bill to benefit labor. According to Mr. Harrah the Carnegies get $540 a ton for armor plate made for the government and given out without any competitive bidding by this McKlu leyed administration on which the aver age wages is only a few dollars a ton. That is the way the McKinley bill treats the wotkingmon. are - '1 years V With Mr. Harrah, the steel manu facturer attacking the industrial frauds of the McKinley bill and Mr. Mac Veagh attacking its immoral frauds the Phila delphia Press will have some difficult work of defense and apology. It does seem a little strange that the great uni versities, that ail respectable politic economists,that all of the greatest pap and magazines, that Judges Coo/ , Hare and Gresham, that Major Hfcd . Governor Amos, Mr. Cramp and M juv rah, Republican manufacturers; *if to over top all, that a man like Wayne Mac Veagh all unite in attacking and de nouncing the McKinley bill, must be something rotten iu a measure of which only those who are direct bene ficiaries can see the beauties. There There are only a few days le/t in which to pay your poll tax. and the chances are that if you do not pay it yourself it will not be paid at all. will have to be paid by Saturday next the neglecting citizen will be disfran chised. No one should overlook that fact. Those who may now feel indiffer ent about voting will not feel so iu the last days of the campaign, and it will then be too late to get a tax receipt.— Philadelphia Press. What a Republican paper in Penn sylvania urges as a matter of duty would he rank treason in a Republican paper here. We have a great deal of nonseuse about the inalienable rights of a negro to vote without paying taxes, and a great deal of silliness about allowing white carpet baggers the privilege of paying taxes in hulk' t<r hold mortgages ou the It voter's rights, in fee simple; but such advice as the above here would be fatal to Republican success, What do Peck's burned figures count against the denunciation of the McKin ley hill by Wayne MacVeagh, a Penn sylvanian, an honest, able man and an attorney-general under Garfield? Peck's figures are worth less, not more, than he is worth', he is worth nothing. lint Wayne MacVeagh is n tower of strength. How will the Republicans apologize for the loss of such a man? What have the honorable and respectable Republicans to answer to the indictment against the McKinley hill for its moral evils? He says : In deciding for what purposes the masses of the people may properly be taxod, it must nut be forgotten that taxes have a wonderful capacity for fil tering through ail intervening obstacles till they reach the bowed back of toil and resting there; and therefore the giving of bounties, under any form of taxation, is mainly the giving away of the wages of labor. The sad truth that the curse of the poor is their poverty illustrated in nothing more clearly th in the undue share they suffer of the burdens of taxation. But apart from this consideration, ought nut taxes only to bo imposed as required for public purposes, or may they also he imposed for the pecuniary ad vantage of such persons or classes as are able to control congressional action in their favor? It seems to me like u travesty on taxation to require, as the McKinley bill does, the farmer who grows corn in Indiana to pay a bounty to the farmer who produces cane sugar in Louisiana, or to require the farmer who grows wheat in Pennsylvania to pay a bounty to the farmer who pro duces maple sugar in Vermont ; but it is nearer tragedy than travesty to tax the masses of the people to increase the wealth of the very wealthy owners of most of our protected industries. Is it not immoral tu sieze one man's goods and bestow it upon another man? Is it not immoral to sieze the poor man's labor to enrich the rich man's factory? Can any sophistry blind anybody but a fool to the fact that to enrich a _factory by law somebody must be impoverished by law? WOMEN IN MUSIC. The foolish limitations upon the tal ents and energies of woman are fast dis appearing. In small things as in great, she lias demonstrated her ability, and her success in the various arts and sciences lias enabled her to attempt greater things. This broader and broadening of the womanly sphere is not better illustrated in anything than in music. It is within ihe last two decades that women have ap peared on the stage,or in the social circle even,to play upon any instrument but the piano. There was a prejudice against playing a fiddle or blowing a horn which no woman dared to defy. It was esteemed unladylike even to pucker her pretty lips and swell her rosy cheeks for a whistle. It was not becoming, so the frowning old-fashioned people said, for a young woman to make any other at tempt to entertain or amuse her friends than by singing und playing at the piano. They were all expected to do o t hnrH a groat deal of excruciating music. It was the proper thing, however, for a woman to play a piano, no matter how badly, till she was married to a candid brute of a husband, who in some emphatic manner advised her that she ought not to ruin her health and spoil his happl Nothing less would stop them. These limitations against music have Women are emanci A woman in these pro gressive days .may play every Instru ment if she chooses, and ehe 1» not compelled to play any instrument if she does not choose. It is not unladylike to decline to inflict intolerable noises the community. In some of the orches tras she has. worked the trombone and beaten the bass drum without risking her standing in society. Several women have made fortunes by whistling and there are many whose puffed out cheeks fill the shrill cornet with harmonious wind and, whose lithe and symmetrical arms extract exquisite notes from the violin. Tlie removal of these restric tions have afforded the women much pleasure and relieved the rest of us of much torture. is »•Mim Jul iwu *.».l or. a in WHM ness. all disappeared, paled iu music. on TAXI 1/ flop's BOUKTIÇS.

Mr. Robertson says : 1 was one of the Garfield Republicans who believed iu the gradual reduction and readjustment of the tariff, what I thought I would get from the election of Harrison last time. If I ex pected any such tariff measure as the Mc Kinley bill I would not have voted the,- Republican ticket that year. As to the effect of the tariff on the lumber business, Mr. Robertson says it does not effect the lumber dealer at all. We get our profit on the lumber handle whether the tariff is low or high. But the present tariff does throw a heavy burden upon every mau who builds a house, and this tax is twice heavy ou the poor mau who builds a modest house as on one who can afford to buy the bettor grades of lumber. The tariff is $2 a thousand on spruce, which is a cheap lumber, and $1 a thousand on pine. We have many customers build ing homes in the suburbs south of Brooklyn for $.».500 to $3,009 each through their savings or through build ing associations. Such lumber customers are discriminated against by this extra tariff on spruce, which has to be used instead of the costlier home pine. agant recy. onsumers, a at dll did not ion of the tlia exr o' 1 st year That is We Ur In such a house a man pays a tariff of $350 tax on his lumber, or 10 per cent. Whom does that $2 .0 tax benefit? Does it increase the wages of the Kauuck tree chopper, who comes across the line twice a year to camp in the woods and get his supplies from home? It does not. Ho gets less wages than a Maine chopper would get becaflse he lives cheaper. It goes directly into the pockets of the man who owns the trees which have grown and matured in (led given air and sunshine, and been nourished from the virgin soil enriched by the plenteous rains of heaven.

WAN A M A U KICK. Philadelphia, Wednesday, October The weather to-day is likely to be clear. I&tt. In the markets of the world Philadelphia taste has been re garded as* something apart, peculiar, unique. It has been assumed that such DressGoods and Costumes as the cultivated world at large would approve would he rejected in this city. That question has been stud ied here. We have long thought the assertion a slander. In former seasons we have proved its falsity. We will now prove it false again and drop the sub ject forever. Philadelphia taste is nice and discriminating. Hut that should bring and should not exclude from this market the best of the world's Dress products. At this point, as at many others, we have reversed pre vailing usage. To this theory and practice is due the great and rapidly growing trade that we are doing in Wraps and Costumes. The chief of the Costume, Wrap and Fur stocks went to Europe this Summer with carte blance instructions. He was untrammelcd in either quanity or selection. The re sults appear in the stocks shown to-day. The models exhibited repre rcsent Barblet the favorite of the Austrian and Russian Courts; Ernst Raudnitz popu lar in the Republican Court, for American wo men patronize him largely; Felix, the prince of Dress makers; Madam Dusuzeau, at whose commad the Costumes of the First Empire arc reg nant again; Madame Deltrop tre, whose few productions are to Dressmaking as orchids are to llowcrs; Paquin, who at present is all the rage in Paris, the revivalists of the styles of the restoration in 1830: Gilles, the artist of exquisitely em broidered Wraps. Besides these there are Costumes from Rouf, Sara Mayer, Augustin Martin and E. Pasquicu; Wraps from Monnot, Abel and Ulliac; Furs from Rcvil lion.
