Sknmtor, MouitiiL has predicted that the senate will not reach n vote on the Dlngley tariff bill before- September. This view is, howeer, ihared by few of the Republican Bcnators. ' It is a circumstance that gives some idea as to the way the President's tiuiu is occupied that several days af publication of the lettei from Gomez it is auuounced that the President lias not seen it except in the newspapers, not having had any time to devote to ofllcial lltTTi Ghkk.v will foreclose Chi cago mortgages to the- extent of $ I ,-000,000. It is said the mortgages arc to be foreclosed because of failure to pay interest, taxes nnd ance. The property is that of speculators who were caught in debt when the hard times came and have been unable to work out. It is said 100.00Q nppliciiliom for ollice have been received in U 3incc luein uiguratioji vvrv one of these applicants h.i t be notiOcd that his applicatloirl.iN In en received. What train load m il made by this corriiniUiice back and forth. ThU .i,i :mn of I Tiik loss of General Rivera is u most unfortunate blow to tho insurgents, but as claimed by the Junta the cause of Cuba is greater than any mail and for every such leadei captured or killed ten competent men wll arise to fill his place. Rivein was a worthy successor to tho Macco and Sanguily will doubtless be found as nble and as active as cither, if indeed ho shall take up the mantle that has fallen from the noble Rivera. A Ni:w Jt:itsi:r farmer bought the buildings of au old dynamite factor and with the timbers and boards built fences about bis farm to a very extent. The other day ttt o men were engaged iu resetting sonu of the posts. One of them struck 0 pjt with a Hedge hammer when it exploded, killing one of the men ami seriously injuring tho other. Tin theory is that the wood became impregnated with the material, aud thai farmer is now trviug to find out whether he is not fenced in with dju ttmite. feeling has been in the House through tin action of Judge Terry, of Arkansas, by wh'ch Mr. Uailcy was prevented from making a speech on tho tariff bill. The choice of Mr. Hailoy as the nominee for speaker makes him the recognized lender of the Democrats. On account of a sore throat ho surrendered his right to conduct the debate to Mr. MeMillin, of Tcii nessee, witli the expectation of delivering a closing speech of nu hour on an ogreejneut with Mr. JJingley. It required unanimous consent to make tho necessary etension of time. This Judge Terry refused, with the result of preventing Mr. Uuilcy'B speech. Just why tho Democrats, who have so little to be proud over, should fall out among themselves and act80aroiretUlyVJJ not apparent, ?" "Tiiolulk lias arisen hetwecu Hawaii and Japan of such serious character as to induce the Japanese consul to call for a war vessel. The dilllculty was caused by tho refusal of the Hawaiian authorities to permit t'jc landiug of a large number of Japanese immigrants. The law of Hawaii requires cery immigrant to hive $50 in cash or a hbor contract. The immigrants that wore returned had mithcr. It is claimed by the consul Hint the action of the Hawaiian government was in contravention of ihc trentv lights of the Jiiuncie. Tin. Peruvian yo eminent is about 'h mn up against a dillloulty with I'nele Sam. Somu three months ago an American sailor was arrested for disordcily cdihIiilI at Callao. He was, in iol.il on of treaty rights, condeintied to one jcar's imprisonincnt without the scinhlaiicc of a trial. United States Minister McKenzle has dciiinndcd the immediate release of the prisoner nnd this Peru declines. Whether moral suasion short of an ironclad will to bring her to her senses rc mains to be seen. Tin: "Register's" allusion to the Republican county committee ns the ' Hlnck and tan" committee is relv in keeping with the cleva'ed (?) plane of journalism to which it has assigned itself. It lias email coLCeption of the respect due to opinion, whether in line with or op-posed to its own, and to promilicnl and responsible men who hold such opinion. It has smaller conception of the dignity that should ize the editorial columns of n dailj that aspires to a standing in nu intel ligent community. Tiik intimation that President McKiuley is now or over was out of line wiih his party is wholly gratuitous and without foundation in truth. The story that McKiuley ever was or had any inclination to be a bimetal-list in the Hry anic sense of the term had its origin like thousands of other stories, in the inventive brains of .Ills opponents. Xo well informed and truthful ncw'9pacr will permit itself 1 1 promulgate such silly stories. The bi netallism that President McKinley would favor would be favored hy of his party and would be participated lifby the other great commercial nations. "KTiu: Wisconsin legislature has .ior some time hail before it a bill in re- theatccJtsjworn by the ladies. The bill by a senator named Risum. The committee to which it was referred decided against it aud having one of their number invoke his muse applicants is largely tlue to the hard I tho report of the times. The number of applications fro-n any state come from Kansas. A Washington correspondent criticises Secretary Sherman because hi signs his name in full to messages sent by cable nnd thus increases the cost to the government. Secretary Olney signed simply "Oluey" but Mr Sherman Sherman." Surely the Secretary, in the interest of economy, ought to bo willing to drop that ilrst name. It is not so very "purf." anyway. Uncle Sam's cigar money' would be more plentiful perhaps, by the telegraph tolls saved. comrnit'ce wai made in the following rvthmic form: ' We Iblult It n pity, "That we, jotircummltlte, And une of Importance nt tint, Aretskeil without reason llytbUMr Ktsum, To consider his 'Tale of a Hat ' ' So till U our wrdlct: We bellm 0 women perfect.

Tin: terrible suffering of tho people on the lower Mississippi and its tribulaiics, who have been driven from their homes by the ruthless valors, perhaps exceeds anj thing of .he same nature that has ever befallen this country, and tho worst is uol yet. Slowly but surely tho pitiless Jood creeps up upon them and crowds them to higher ground aud liually to a precarious footing on the levee, where with tho scanty be'-longings which they havo been enabled to bring with them, thoy await the doubtful event of relief or death, Kveri thing possible is being ilonc for their rescue, but with all that can lie done, of the thousands in peril many are not r.soueifiu lime to sajt extreme sufferiug and oftentimes death. The number of lives tint go out in this time of dire calamity will never be known. It is a time foi I charitable people all over thecountrv o open their hearts nutl untie their ,inrse strings. I.v its attempt to reply to editorial iu the Si'.v with reference to the tariff bill now before congress the "Regis ter" violates every rule of ncwspapei ethics. In tho first place it wilfully filsilles the position heretofore assumed by this paper. Tho Sl'.v has uot for 1111 instant forgotten that tin Dlngley bill lm3 not el iuto a law, and as tho "Register" well knows, has rcpea.etlly attributed the present improvement iu the business outlook to tho knowledge that the policy of protection must and will prevail, with the Republican party iu power. When the "Uegister" suvh: "It has been only a few moons since the Sln asserted that tho wave of prosperity was engulfing us because of ihojjcnefaction of the gold standard," it makes an assertion (IFuT if caunot verify and that is in fact false in every word aud implication. The Sls never made any such assertiou uor anything that could bo tortured iuto such form. The St v has never for an instant taken such ground, and its files, of which it is presumed the "Regis ter" ha3 one, will show tho correct' uebs of tbisjjtalcmcnt, 'Tho fact li, tho Sln is a triflo off in its history. The beginning of the great panic antedated tho Wilson bill by a year or, more, and was during the operation of the McKiuley act, tho great protopj of the Dlngley monstrosity.' Tho St'N is nothing of tho kind. The Sl'x has repeatedly asserted that the beginning of the present panic was immediately after tho election of 1802, when It became apparent that the policy of protection was to be superseded by a low tariff policy. There never was a brighter outlook for labor, as evidenced by the building of numerous factories, the organizing of new companies for the employment of labor in various lines of manufacture and tho activity of money In general than followed tho enactment, of the McKinley law. Immediately after the election of 1802, hundreds of fnctoiics in various stages of con' structiun were brought to n stnmt and tho thousands of laborers they were to employ have since remained idle. Two such instances, one to employ 1000 hands In the ulauutnct ure of tiu plate, eanlc under the per sonal observation of the editor of this paper. This factory, whose. owners had abundant capital to conduct it, remained idle during the entire font- years of the Cleveland administration and until tho success of the Republicans last November gave au earnest that its operation at the prevailing prices of labor-could be made prontabl, when preparations were made for putting it iuto operation. This is but one instance of a thousand the country has scan, and illustrates sulllciently for any one except those who will not, to see that the improvement U. due to the tariff that is WT be The American people have short memories else they would recall that the greatest boiicliciarics of the Mc- Kinky act were the protected interests aud not tha laborers aud consumers. 1 lie latter had to aceept the terms offered by the trusts, and will have to do so again. A mere assertion. The memories of the advocates of protection arc probably as good as those of its enemies, nnd they remember that every prospect was for the improvementof the condition of labor. Une would think to read tho above paragraph that the determination as to who were the beneficiaries was merely a matter of vision aud not a question that appeals to the reason of the observer. If the "Register" in its controversies rith the Son will oou(iae itself to-true statements of the position of the latter Itwlll alIeasCbo entitled to respect itself nnd may in time gaiu tho respect of iti contemporaries. LYING MUGWUMPS. William K. Curtis, in the Chicago "Record," answers a question by a correspondent as to the correctness of a statement iu "Harper's Weekly" that "the present tariff law produces more revenue than tho law which bore McKinley's name," aud again "Un der tho McKiuley law customs w nucs fell in four 3 cars from to 128,881,8l!t, while under the Wilson larr tho revenues have increased," savs: No ; they are not correct, nutl a respectable paper like ''Harper's Weekly" should be more accurate ami not permit its editors to falsify figures to sustain an argument. The following is a statement of the annual receipts from customs from 18'J0 to 18'JC inclusive, which covers tu existence of boih the McKinley and the Wilson tariff laws. These figures are olficial : ij.

Dinglev high tax bill was crowded through the House day afternoon, according to the fixed I Republican schedule, after u restrict-1 ed dbute which covered only twenty-two of the 102 pages of the measure.

It seeks to convey the "impression that Congressmen blindly vote 1 for the Dingley tariff bill without knowing iinvthiiiL' of its nrovi. sions, implving Unit their only opportunity to learn of them was in the public reading of the bill iu. tho House. Were this truo a verv shor knowledgo would ever bo gained. The truth is that every bcr is in possession of- a printed copy of tho bill, and has the wages, flee. fullest opportunity to study it in detail. The ten days spent iu ita consideration by tho House moy fairly be supposed to liave been spent in n large part in careful individual ex amlualion of llio bill In all Us bear ings.

Curtis, In tho Chicago Record, furnishes some ill-formation of peculiar interest, in the recent agitation iu favor of silver in (his country. He sas Mint iu its commerco witli otucr nations the Mexican dollar is the standard of value In Japan, and several millions of coins nrc shipped annually from .Mexico to Yokohama anil 0therJapa11e.se ports, which furnish a bit-is of e.vchaugo. Duriug the last three or four v ears the Mexican dollar has been valued at 50 cents in gold, or thereabouts, and as a the price of imported merchandise has doubled when ,paid for iu silver-, Although there has been comparatively little change in the price of exportable products and staple's of tho country. A bile of raw silk or a box of tea have cost but little more iu silver to produce, but they sell in silvor for nearly as much us ihey did tcu vears ago. The difference, representing a clear profit, has gone iuto the pockets of the men. The producer anil the laborers who JpH in the fields have notpatUcipafed in the pro ah hough they bave beeu compelled to pay twic as -much for all imported goods. Tho Japanese rami nauii received ten cents a day in silver when the metal was.nt par with gold. He receives about eleven cents a day iu silver, now that that metal is worth only one-half as much as gold. A few j ears ago aardof Manchester prints could be bought with the proceeds of one dnj 's labor. Today the same .nrtlclg cos.'s the pro ceeds of two days' labor. Tho same rulo applies to Hour, sugar, coffee and all other imported artic.es, although it should be sajd that the laboring classes in Japan use very little of them. It will be notdtl that as contended by the Republicans iu all discussions of the proposed free coinage of silver would be the case in this country, the laborer gets practically the same number of the depreciated coins that he used to when they .wore worth their face in gold. Thus the man who suffers Is tllb cfomnioii laborer. When the Amen'can laborer yelled for the "dollar of our daddies" he was sqeking to leduco his own wages by one-half. HllIEXSUUlMi.
