The great msjority that Pennsylvania
casts for tbe party ot protection shows
that her people are not ao much Inter
ested in the weitste of tbe country
in grabbing all they can obtain for
themselves. There is no such majority
anywhere else. There Is no people on
the face of tbe globe so thoroughly
united. This is because there is no
people which la so thoroughly inmbued
with selfishness and tainted with
the corrupting love of money.
Other communities divide more
less evenly an political questions;
the commonwealth of Pennsylvsnia
remains stolid aud solid for tbe
thing that briugs money to it at tbe
expense of the people.

"The justice and lawyers made their

Episodes like this, happening frequently
sod all over the country, serve to prove
that the people muet begin »to compel
tbe courts to become more efficient The
sentiment, false and hollow and ig
soraut, which has been used by shrewd
lawyers to obtain fees by rescuing
criminals from swift and deserved
punishment, has inspired people
with an cqualj contempt tor law

The Socialists "took on" dreadfully at
the election of Casimir-Perier as Presi
dent of the Republic of France. They
booted and cried "Down with the lack -

that they are ready, if they have not
already begun, to précipitai« trouble.
It is from that party In France and from
tbe same political elements which com
pose that party everywhere that trouble
and Anarchists spring. Tbe Anarchist
is a man without a country He comes
from everywhere; he goes everywhere
and stays wherever he Is tolerated. He
ought not to be tolerated anywhere He
is an enemy to ail governments;
an enemy to mankind. He is

Socialist and a beast. jHe is the personi

Tbe people of this country cannot frown
too severely upon the lying "old soldier"
who draws a pension on the plea of dlsa
biiity or disease "contracted in the ser
vice;" they cannot condemn too rigidly
tbe policy which appllee a protective
tariff to every beggar.Industry which de
minds publie support. B>th of these
classes, the pensioners and the protee
lloulsts, are incipient Socialists from
whom beggars, thieves, tramps and An
archiste spring. It la every man's duty
to support himself ;
It is not tbe duty!

Is a fraud, tbe protectionist Is a robber
in proceas of formation.
The tariff bill as amended by the
I I denate includes, in the dutiable list,
many articles which yield but little
revenue compared with the immense
burden which they imp»»* on the people
la fact, the revenue is infinitesimal, the
cost to the consumera Is induite.
Among these are various grades of
hardware, leather, battons, bolts,
worsted and woolen goods. With tbe
exception of woolen goode, there is no
other article In this list which pays any
considerable revenue In 1833 "wood
screws," which are dutiable as iron
steel, yielded a revenue of the ridieulous
sum of $27 ; yet the increased cost

used in this country, is incalculable.

of extortion, all the reanlts of tbe little
trusts Those trusts which are not im
portant enough to create a scandal, such
as I* rife now between the manipulators
of tbe sugar schedule and the Sugar
There are many articles in the list
above mentioned which produce only
a few dollars revenue, while the increased
cost to the consumers represents millions
of dollars. Tbe discussion about the
relative amounts of money which the
Tieisury and the trusts obtain, compared
with the amount which tbe people pay,
»bows the impossibility of arriving at any
correct conclusion concerning these
to all »er and less known enterprises
There is; not one legislator of tbe 500
who knows anything about "wood
know mach alunit the important sched
alu relating to sugar, and vet the sugar
schedule has been prolific enough <o
produce $80,000,000 revenue and when
that was abolished, to bestow $35,000,

Kinley law.
If the legislators have any knowledge,
or If they did not exercise the proper
care to perfect the sugar schedule, bow
can they be expected to deal with Intelli
gence or justice between the people and
the trusts in regard to thousands of
these minor articles?
They cannot do it.
The just and proper thing to do is to
the trusts. This Is the only
adjustment which Is possible.

Washington, June 28.—The sonate has
reached the last section of the Income tax
provision of the tariff bill. Tho debate as
a whole was dull. It pcrtalnod mostly to
a series of amendments offered by Mr.
Hill, Mr. Aldrich and others, all ot which
weto voted down, looking to tho axemp
tlon of small stockholders whoso dividends
from corporate investments did nut ex
ceed $4.000.
Just buforu adjournment section 6(5, di
recting corporations to k> up hooks show
ing their receipts and expenditures mid
authorizing tliu inspection of books and
papers by collectors dt Internal revenue
und their deputies, was mu-hod.
This was the sigual for a very violent
assault from Mr. Gray (Horn., Del.), Mr.
Aldrich (Hop., K. I.), Mr. Hill and oth
ers. The suction promises to furntsh ma
terial for a good deal of discussion.
The general Impression seem to bo,
however, that tho hill will be completed
In committee of tho whole today and re
ported to tho senate, in which event the
managers of the bill confidently hope to
pass tho bill on Saturday.
The uncertain clement in the sltualloli
is tho resolution passed by the houso to
continue the past appropriat'uiis in force
for 10 days after July 1. If tho Republic
ans desire, they can use this wisolutlon as
a bluff for tho rest of the week, as it must
be passed before July 1 in order to con
tinue tho machinery of government in
5fr. IIill's Amendment.
Mr. Hill offered an amendment t<> tho
end of section 511 to exempt .corporations
created by tho states which I>y tho terms
of their incorporation are required to pay
a special tux on their earnings.
A very important question was present
ed by this amendment, Mr. Hill said In
support of It. This exemption should lie
made. As a lawyer, as ^ell as a senator,
ho maintained tho hrond proposition that
tho federal government had no right to
tax tho moans by which the statu secures
tho revenue necessary to carry on tho ma
chlm-ry of tho state. Now York received
$2,000,000 annually from such special cor
If tho state and federal governments
both attempted to levy a tax on the In
comes of such corporations, a conflict of
authority would immediately follow. Mr.
11111 said ho would Ilka to hear somo rea
son why his amendment should nut he
adopted. His only answer was a chorus of
calls for a vote. Tho amendment was lout
—25 to 30.
Denounced by Mr, Aldrleh.
Mr. Aldrich offered an amendment to
except savings banks organized on the
mutual plan solely for tho benefit of their
depositors. It was accepted.
Mr. Vest offered an amendment, which
was agreed to, exempting mutual savings
banks completed for the benefit of depos
itors in tbo stato of Delaware.
Mr. PolTor proposed nn amendment to
exempt tho salaries of state, county and
municipal officers. It was lost.
Mr. Hill moved to amend section 60, to
provide for tbo Inspection of accounts of
corporations subjuet to the tax,
limit tho time of Inspection to tho period
between March 1 and Aug. %
Mr. Aldrich characterized tills section
as tho most odious and outrageous piece
of legislation over proposed by tills or any
other congress. No government! munar
uhleal or otherwise, would dare to enact
such a provision of law.
It proposed to throw open tho private
books of every corporation to tho scrutiny
of the government's army of treasury
agents. It permitted tho government to
send its agents Into tho counting room
and there to examine the secret accounts
uf tliu corporations. It was true these
agents were prohibited from giving out
tliu Information they obtained, but wlmt
did a prohibition amount to?
Mr. Vest In reply said bo could not'ac
count for this sudden patriotic eruption of
Mr. Aldrich except by the near approach
of the Fourth of July,
Ho did not sec any reason why every
corporation doing Imsim'S- honestly should
object to having its books examined to at
low government officials to see how much
they honestly owed the government.

Of all national airs it breathes the
purest patriotism, he says. Those of
England, Russia and Aus'rla are based
upon s sentimental loyalty long outgrown
