Some Mexican McKinley ought to hasten to protec' those "rich" tin deposits with a four cent tariff before finding out whethei there is any paying tin ore or not. It is so wise and jast to do a thing like that, that doubtless every nation will be grow ing a McKinley statesman shortly.

The sub ject of taxation relieved of craukism and ignorance, is simple. There are but few precepts for a legislator, who is wise or calm to follow, and those precepts neither known nor advocated by cranks. Cranks have only one idea usually, anti that one idea grows so pregnant with nursing that there is no room for auy ether idea.

There are men aud women, organized and disorganized on all degrees of sense and nonsense, for the purpose of helping itber people to keep well and happy.

Many of the bodies at work in field are not organized on a firm basis uor operated with discretion. Many the members of them have not a clear idea of what good ts or how to apply to the victims of their efforts. But aork goes bravely on ail the same.

They mny not sting; they certainly do plagne a fellow. They may not do any harm; the» certainly do not unite to take up "Kenelm Chillingly" and east him into the riv?r This is partly explained by Herbert Spencer, who says; Only in comparatively rare cases where the anonymous benefaction is from one who can ill afford the money or the labor required, does generosity rise to that highest form in which altruistic gratification, out balances, egoistic grat ideation. The real benefactors are few because I hero are so few who have either the I act, the taste, the knowledge, or the discretion to help a man in the only way In which a matt, or a woman, may be helped. The benefactors are mostly amiable cranks to whom the beauties of altruism are as foreign as a conception of the complex orbits of the interwhil Ing suns of this inconceivable universe They cannot "do good" lu any beneficial way because they cannot conceive how or why to try to help their neighbors. NEWSPAPER OPINION The Power of Labor. Philadelphia Telegraph. There lias been a great deal thought, written, and said about the power of the labor organizations in the United Stales; but it is evident that it is not to be considered in comparison with the power of similar organizations in Europe, iu England, the London Spectator re eeutly declared, in a leading article not favorable to the combinations of labor, that they had within the last decade in crensed the wage rate 20 per cent. That was a tremendous echievement, and one over which everybody should rejoice, as there cau be uo two opinions about workmen being better paid t han were those of England ten years ago, or than for the matter of that, better paid tliau they now are. The power of the labor element was recently shown by the fact that the Londou Council voted that hereafter iu all work done by the city of London none hut uuion men should be employed, and that Uuion hours and Union wages should be accepted as the rule in all work done, whether the employes were employed directly by the :lty or by the city's con tractors Another evidence of their power in Euglaud is to be perceived in the deference shown their representative delegations that have visited hot it Mr. Gladstone, the Liberal leader, and Lord Salisbury, the Conservative leader The greatest victory which organized labor bas ever won—and it is one upon which it is most of all to be congratulated— was that of securing the granting of the popular demand by the Belgians of tvliat is practically universal suffrage, workingmen of Belgium have for years contended for this privilege, and their means of securiug it have been chiefly Used by their powerful labor Uuions They were unauinionsly for It, and when It was denied them the other day, actuated by a common they struck work, only brought the country's industries to a staud, hut they made revolution so likely or certain a thing us to oblige the King to intervene, and the right demanded was conceded It is true that the King has since declared that his in terposition on behalf of the working people was his own voluntary act. * * This déclarai ion is scarcely supported by t be facts, as the King did uot iutor posts to influence the Legislature to pass the Suffrage Act until lhe people weie in open revolt In a dozen cities and towns In Belgium, or uut.il the stability of the government, In which he was so largely personally interested,was most seriously threatened. However violent or riotous is iu au Tlie purpose, d not an the workmen were betöre their demand was conceded, they retired quickly to their hemes, leaving law and order to be established, and went to tbelr work per fectly satisfied The great Belgian strike was purely political aud not,as it has been declared to be, Socialistic If it had been the latter, the mob would have been like that of the Paris Commune in 1870, which destroyed life aud property, burned and looted the palaces and the homes of the rich. There was nothing of a Socialistic character iu the ILIgistt strike The demand of the labor organ izations, which acted as oue combined force in aupport of a common purpose, was for uot bin g more than manhood suffrage, which had been enjoyed bv the aristocratic and wealthy classes, and which was agaiu and agaiu denied them. Having got what they wanted, though not in the precise form they wanted it, they accepted what was given them and resumed work At no time did they wantonly kill, bttru, and tear down, as the Paris Communists did. * * * It is true that the latter used their power of com bination as a force to secure a political object; but having secured their object, they at once became peaceful, law abidiug citizens Their victory was a notable oue, and it cannot fail to suggest to the governments of Europe that the time nigh at hand when they cau no longer with safety ignore the popular will; that personal government, that iu which people have no adequate representation, is, or must soon be, a thing of tlie past. of it.

His remarks of that day were: "I will bring charges before the Police Commission against each of these for insubordination and possibly some thing else."
