District Attorney Green, of Now York, in leaving the Republican party «ays: "The Republican party of 1800 was the exponent of the grandest ideas and t he most ennobling sentiments, but to what abysmal depths has it fallen in these times. It now stands for nothing more than a corrupting combination between plutocrats and politicians to plunder the people." W n at have the financiers of the party which passed the silver bill of 18U0 to ■ay of tbe slump in silver. Notwithstand ing the law requiring a mont hly purchase of 4,500,000 ounces of silver at a stip ulated price silver bullion has been steadily declining till now it is selling at .8345 an ounce. The Republican party undertook the charitable task of assist ing to keep up the price of silver in the interest of the poor mine owners and failed. Silver is cheaper than ever, the treasury has more of it than could lie coined in two years, and if it were put th» market the price of bullion would I probably decline to .70 an ounce. Thus j another grAt »chemo of robbing tli» people to enrich the monopolists has been exposed. Herb's a chance for Fire Alarm For ak»r. Notwithstanding the blood that was spilled, the lives that were sacrificed aud the immense expenditure of treasure to dsfand, recapture aud hold Fort Sumter, it is now in the hands of the South Carolina Confederates and does not fly the United States flag. The subject was mentioned before the Grand Army encampment in Washington and the su per loyal coffee-coolers passed a resolutem instructing the secretary of war to hoist a flag over the fort. In the excitement of the professional loyalty on tap there the resolution was passed without iu ▼estigation. In fact, any opposition, even enough to allow time for investigation, would have been regarded as disloyal or treasonable. It is well known, of course, that all the Confeder ate soldiers are awaiting an opportunity to tear down the United States flag and run up the three barred flag used by the defunct Confederacy. That being the case the Grand Army and Foraker and Palmer keep spy glasses trained upon the South to catch the first whisper of treason, the first wave of dis loyalty. They know both are there. They have caught several and crushed waves and whispers galore and stamped them out before • maturity. But, unfortunately, they have made them selves ridiculous in this case for the regulations of the war department pro hibit flyiDg a flag over a unused fort. Thb air is filled with challenges from the Democrats to debate the increased tariffs of the McKinley bill. If those in creases were honest and necessary it seems that there should be no hesitancy on tlio part of the Republicans to explain and defend them. They are not willing to do either. The latest challenge is that of the Philadelphia Tariff Reform League to the Manufacturers' Club of Philadelphia to hire halls and provide for many joint discussions for the education of the people. Like ail other challenges, like the challenge of the enthusiastic Cleveland First Voters to the Republi can First Voters here, this challenge will be declined also. The Republicans cannot afford to discuss openly the private deals that were made in the secrecy of the com mittee to fix the tariff rates to suit those who had subscribed to the campaign fund. There is not a man in the Repub lieau party who lias ever uttered a word concerning the maple sugar bounty. They have innnaged to invent dreams and coucoct excuses for other grants made in precisely tho same manner and precisely for the same motives but that is such a naked ami shameless steal and fraud that they cannot palliate it. On tho other hand they have not condemmed it. They cannot repeal it without repealing S(M) other grants to special bencdelaries made under the same Reed rules by the same counted in majority which passed the law giving a bounty to the maple-sugar boilers. They can talk about the prosperity of the country by tho hour but they dare not reply to a few simple questions. Tits spectacle of Andrew Carnegie ox pending his money in doing charitable works in Scotland is suggestive of the sensation that. Judas Iscariot would have created by offering to preach the gospel to the Christiaus, free. In tho light of having a contract to furnish armor plate to the United States naval department at $540 per ton, tho em ployment of the Pinkertons, fortification uf Homestead the and tho riot, dentil and distress which followed these, the words of Carnegie present him in the light of a hypocrite and sycophant too vulgar to comment on, too notorious to treat with contempt. At the dedication of the "Carnegie" mem orial library at Ayr, Scotland, Mr. Carne gie said ; I feel more strongly bound than ever to devote the retiming years of my life less to aims ending in self and more to the service of others, using my surplus wealth and spare time in the manner most likely to produce the greatest good to the masses of the people. From these masses comes tho wealtli which is en trusted to tho owner only as administra tor. If an old worn-out pimp and procurer, who liad despoiled or misled all tho virgins and mulcted and black-mailed all the rich old roues iu his city till his greed was satisfied and his business was exposed, had made such professions it could not have been a groater shock than this offer of a robber millionaire to use liis surplus wealtli for tlie masses of the people. It is startling profanity, it is an insult to i liarity that Carnegie, the partner iu the concern which prepared for tlie Homestead riots and murders to pra to of the poor. Bksides helfe important disaffections because of the intrinsic qualities of the men, the disaffection» of Judges Cooley, Hare and Gresham, and of Wayne Mac Veagh are still more important In their consequences. These men are the rep resentatives of thousands of honest aud patriotic hut disgusted citizens who can not follow the Republican party on the Force bill issue and on the robbery aud fraud of tlie McKinley bill in its scheme of "Republican protection." As the Philadelphia Record says; "Mr. MacVeagli gives a voice to tlie Inward thought which moves Judge Gresham, Judge Cooley, Mr. Foitlko, Mr. Julian and thousands of other Ropublicau wheelliorses, and tens of thousands of younger men, to tlie abandonment of n party whose policies no louger command their respect or deserve their support. " it is notorious that tunny Republicans disapproved of the McKinley bill and tlie method of purchase and sale by which its provisions were procured; it is notorious that many more disapproved of the Force hill. This administration has I mun wll ° voted loT cognizant now, j if not cognizant then, of the frauds it approves, engenders aud promotes. Tlie Australian ballot will be tbe opportunity f° r these silent but determined men. simply pretended to abandon tlie Force bill, but it lias not pretended to ahnndon the McKinley bill, even though every They are not writers or orators; they are voters. They are not getting rich by the tariff; they do not want subsidies; they are neither beggars nor bribe takers, some, intelligent tax payers, who do not believe that tlie Homestead mill is a pauper industry, and will not be cajoled to vote it a pension or u bounty. They are independent, whole DEMOCRACY VERSUS MISGOVERN MENT. After an aggressive campaign of tariff education the Démocratie party of the nation, one month before the November election, can look forward confidently to a popular vindication of its principles on that day and the inauguration of a Democratic president ou March 4. The vigorous assaults upon the McKinley bill and clear expositions of the iniquities therein con tained—not only by the Democratic leaders aud the Democratic press, hut by heretofore representative Re publican stalwarts — alone show tho strength of Democratic arguments. The defensive attitnde of Republicans oil the tariff, the reluctant assistance of sulk ing party leaders and tbe dearth of enthusiasm iu supporting for a second term a president whose secretary of state alone saved him from a nonentity ad ministration are ominous signs for the party of taxation. The Democratic party of Wilmiugtou lias never had a brighter prospect of suc cess. Its members, aggressive and deter mined, and presenting for the incum bency of county offices men whose pub lic records have never and can never ba smirched by Republican iuvective, have nothing but fraud at the polls to fear. The outrageously extravagant ex penditures of the present Republican city council, the wholesale and renowned abuse of an arbitrary power by the po litical board of health, the high handed methods of the ring Republican building inspector and the wholesale exemplifica tion of a Republican administration more political tlinn beneficial are not only un deniable facts but prophets as well of a sweeping Democratic victory in New Castle county. The Democratic party will win in November. Misgovernment cannot, re ceive popular endorsement. A CAMPAIGN OF DEFENSE. It is a peculiarity of the Republican campaign that it offers no policy, no re form either local or national here or else where. If such a calamity should happen as the return of the Reed congress to power there would not be any "business" for it to do except to McKinley the tariff duties upward again and pass the Force bill again. There Is no! hing else to do. At least the Republican party has not proposed anything else—the orators and writers of tho party are expending their time, expanding their lungs and working t hoir llarrisonized press defending the McKinley bill, trying to deny the Force bill, and in vivifying the "wild cat" bank scare. ( The reason for this is obvious. The rocord of the party in office is a succès Viewed sion of sickening scandals, nationally there are tho same greeds, the same vulgar, clownish disregard for decency in tho monotonous successions of Tanners, Raums, Reeds, "Russ"-IIarrisous, Porters, Crums, Platts, Quays with all tho corruption and treasury-robbing which they imply, that there are here on a smaller scale with tlie levy court and the city council. It might have boon deemed impossible four years ago that so much corruption could have existed in department as to wreck the actors of two two detectives, mayors, to expose two commissioners contracting with themselves for tho sale and purchase of horses and the sharing of the profits of hoarding them. Those tilings and moro have occurred. The trail of the serpent is over tho whole police force, and while there are many honest, brave, ellicient men on tho force, it haHiiot the spirit which it would have if it were not rotten at the top. A few sinners have beeu caught in national and local corruptions, but tho sentiment of private greed and contempt for the people which put them into of lice still exists in the iliggins-llarrison Bach Mahaffy -Asbury- Sterling party which put them there. This is the reason the Republican pa pers and orators have no policy, offer no reforms—-they are defending steals and criminals.

NEWSPAPER OPINION. Wayne Sliu-Yragh Calls a Balt. Philadelphia Times. Wayne MacVeagh's letter given in today's paper, declaring why ho must support Grover Cleveland for president, is the most incisive and the most ex haustive political deliverance in the briefest space, called out in any of our modern political contests. It is keen as a Damascus blade, polished as it is trenchant, aud every liue lias the flavor of tlie manliest statesmanship. Mr. MacVeagh lias loug been a much more important factor in state and national politics that tlie regulation machine leader is willing to confess. lie is not potent in the iuner councils of Mr. Mar tin or Mr. Porter when a machine ticket is to be selected, nor has he been found in tlie confidential conferences at state conventions when Senator Quay and liis followers are about to nominate a governor or other important candidates; but he is, and long has been, a most important factor in tlie revolutions which have time and again overwhelmed those who have prostituted Republican power to tlie aims of the jobber There lias not been a successful revolt against machine politics iu city or state during the last score of years in \v tiich he has not been a teacher lind a worker. Mr. MacVeagh, although never a seekerof public station, lias beeu recognized by party as worthy of its He w as chairman of the Republican State committee in the great battle of 1833 when t'urtiu was re-elected ; he was tendered and accepted a foreign mission under Grant; he was railed to the cabinet by Garfield, and wheu the party sought it s ablest men as deli-gates to the Constitutional convention, he was nom inated and elected without a contest. He has no grievances to air ; no disap pointments to avenge; no aspirations to tempt him from conscience aud truth; and hia letter Is simply tbe mauly ex pression of honest conviction, and his political action is such as makes lustrous tlie manhood of American citizenship. Mr. MacVeagh's arraignment of the de cadence of the Republican administra tion blisters in every paragraph. No uian has, in the same brief space, so clearly, so conclusively and so manfully the Republican highest honors. defined the Issues of the present national contest, and the dignity that is main tained throughout and the entire absence of partisan asperity, must command the respect of even those who shall most violently differ from him. There is Mr. MacVengh's letter; who can answer it? No I tail Itloi.,1 llctive Whites. Austin (Texas) Statesman. The bad blood originally existing be tween the white and colored voter in the South no longer exists. In our county, municipal and sometimes state elections these elements have combined and a better state of feeling is the suit. Peace and good feeding exist and it is very desirable that they should continue go exist. The most intelligent portion of the colored people look with alarm upon the contemplated Force bill. They fear it will arouse prejudice tlmt may result in a race war, and they with the whites would deplore such a eondi tiou of uffairs. en Blacks and re now Harrison Should ('i t Oil the Men Who Bang Upon llim. Boston Post. Four years ago Mr. Harrison was re sponsible for tlie raising of Wunamaker's great corruption fund and for the way in which it was used, for Dudley's blocks of five, for Quay's enormities, must face the responsibility for the New York corruption fund, for "Dave" Mar tin, repeater, ballot box stuffer and in ternal revenue collector; for Hackett's blocks of one letter. If lie expects to stand himself as an honest man before the people he must, call off the rascals whom lie has set at work and stop all this infamous business before it is too late. Mr. Harrison cannot sit bchiudtho rtain of his personal respectability and let these things go on in front. The offense is too rank. Todav he en TWO VIEWS OF MACVEAGH. The Itepuhllean Editor* being Battled See llim From Opposite Sides. ■ays :—Mr, MacVeagh deserves credit for the maiili ness witli which lie avows his change. Ho does not cloak it under the mantle of Cleveland ; he does not mask it under the profession of civil service reform, in stead of that he boldly locks arms in logic and in conclusion with David B. Senator Hill supporta Cleveland because, ns he says, "I am a Democrat." Mr. MacVeagh supports Cleveland be cause, as he says, "I find myself at pres ent in general accord with t he Democrat ic party." Ordinarily Mr. MacVeagh is more epigrammatic than Mr. Hill; in this instance, Mr. Hill ont-MacVeaghs MacVeagh in MacVcagli's own trenrhant stylo. But their declarations, though, different in form, are one in substance. We bad supposed that Mr. MacVeagh gloried in being a Mugwump, frank in avowing that, be lias become a Democrat, and when a man finds himself in accord witli the Democratic party his place is under its banner. "But let it be clearly uudorstood that ho is there not because tho Republican party has clmufted hut beenus* he has changed—not because lie finds as a Republican but because lie bus be come a Democrat. There are other elusive considerations to stiow who has changed. Mr. MacVeagh is now greatly exercised by the "frauds" anil "rob buries" of Republican protection.^ But the protective policy is still substantially the same as it was when he honored it with liis able support. The principle is exactly tho same; the schedules somewhat different, but the changes are not such as he can criticise. The free list is larger than when Mr. Mao Veagli was Grant's Republic to Turkey. Tho average is less than when Mr. Veagh was Garfield's Attorney General. Almost duly which Mr. MacVeagh would denounce as "fostering monopolies" has been lowered since Mr. MacVeagli fighting Republican battles and wearing Republican honors. So, let it bo distinct ly understood 1 hat the Republican party and Mr. MacVeagli have parted company not. because Republicanism has changed for the worse but because Mr. MacVeagh lias changed for—some reason of his own. He lias the right to change. If he has changed liis opinions he ought to change his party. We only insist that it is Mr. MacVeagh's change, and it must not be mistaken for anything else. "Mr. MacVeagii's argument against the McKinley bill is that of any other Democrat. It is keener and more polished because lio is smarter than most Demo crats." The Philadelphia Press Hill. But lie is reasons )i : an Minister "tariff tax' Mar Knpublirnn every now « l Tlie Philadelphia Ledger. The Ledger says: "lion. Wayno Mac Veagh, in the letter published in yester day's Ia-dger under liis signature, has joined hands with Judge Gresham and Judge Cooley in declarations favorable to the Presidential candidacy of Mr. Cleve land. These are all names of eminenco in tlie list of Republican statesmen; they are the names of men whose chat actor, achievements and patriotism have con ferred distinction upon their party. They are in a conspicuous degree tnen repre sentative of high political principles; they are similarly representatives of that small but powerful "remnant" that tlie wise, gentle philosopher, Matthew Arnold, declared would prove tlie "saving" iniluence of national life. Each of them lias played important parts iu politics, butthey have all played them as public spirited, broad minded states men, rather than as selfish, bigoted partisans. They have shaped their principles in accordance witli the axiom that "they serve their party best who serve their country best." "Character always and in all things counts, has its great and certain value, and in nothing more is it a potent factor titan in politics. It consequently follows that, in considering the political defec tion of such a man as Mr. MacVeagh, his character, as it. is known to liis country men from what he has said aud what he has done, must necessarily be considered, in the fullest meaning of the phrase, Mr. MacVeagh is a publicist. With regard to auything that affects or concerns the happiness aud prosperity of liis country men he has not ouly thought, but felt, deeply, lie lias refused, as others as in tellectually strong as he himself did not, to tolerate or excuse a wrong ngninst the people; he has always indignantly re buked and aggressively contended against it. He is too honest and blnut a man to be conservative; his integrity makes him radical, it is his fine sense of public virtue, his love of country, that makes Mm contentions, that places him in the fore front with those who have wrought witli tongue and pen for good government and for honest politics. Apparently, Mr. MacVeagh lias no per sonal political ambition, though he is a politician. Dwelling, Chauga Hands. G. T.

The Bayard Legion, one of the oldest and most influential political organiza tions in this city and state, threw a handsome Cleveland and Stevenson cam paign banner to the breeze on Market street, near the City Hall today. It has attracted much attention and called forth many expressions of admira tion. of Mnrket Street um! Wan Much Ad It is a net banner of large size and splendid design. In each of the upper corners is a rooster rampant. In the upper centre the coat of-arms of Dela ware. with the ipotto "Liberty and In dependence, occupy a conspicuous place. The centre piece is a well-executed like ness of Justice, blindfolded and with scales in hand. At her feet is the American eagle with head held aloft and hunger mad. At the right hand of jus tice is Grover Cleveland; at her left is a good likeness of Adlai Stevenson. Across the banner, at tho top, is the inscription, "Bayard Legion," and at the bottom, "For Congress, John W. Causey." It could not have been placed in a more conspicuous place. While the Democrats were putting it up some linemen attempted to prevent it, saying that it would interfere with the wires, auccs the banner was raised despite the linemen's protest. After some forcible utter THE NEW QUARANTINE SITE. COMMISSIONERS FROM DELAWARE AND PENNSYLVANIA. Danger if Stowaway* or Infected For eigner* Escaping from Iueouilug Ves sels \< and Spreading Disease Through Pennsylvania and Delaware. E. R. Cochran and J. Thomas Budd, on behalf of the Delaware commission, will this afternoon in connection and co opér ât ion witli the Philadelphia Quarantine commission, visit the proposed site of the new quarantine station, or the station that will be removed from Chester to some point further down the river. In reference to the visit the Chester Times of yesterday said ;. "The visit of the Delaware and Penn sylvania Quarantine commission to Bom hny Hook Island, as the guests of the Chester Board of Health, on Thursday, ought to result in some action toward the removal of the quarantine. While the State of Pennsylvania cannot locate a quarantine station within the limits of the State of Delaware without an enact ment of the Legislature of that state, it is to bo hoped that tho represen tatives of the government of Delaware will find their way clear to grant the re quest of their large neighbor. The matter would undoubtedly be looked upon by the Delawareans in a serious sense if the health authorities of Philadelphia would but »how some in terest in the matter. It seems strange that the people of Philadelphia have not awakened to the ridiculous inefficiency of the quarantine arrangements, during the threatened in vasion of the country by cholera. Sup pose a cholera ship should come into the river ! There is nothing at all to prevent passengers, seamen or stowaways escap ing from vessels and landing in Ohester or Wilmington, or along the river front anywhere. Once the disense is intro duced here it is practical.) pliia, and the indifferent city will realize that cholera in Chester means cholera in Philadelphia. It is just as important to Philadelphia that Cli 1er be protected as it is that Richmond or Kensington be kept freo from the dis ease. So far Chester and Delaware county have made all the efforts to secure tho removal of the quarantine station from the immediate outskirts of the city, and it is about time that Phi'adelphia came to the assistance of her neighboring city in freeing herself of the pent house.''
