BITTER ARRAIGNMENT ileveland's Course and Its Blighting Effects. t t Leading Democratic Paper Feels 0, Uncertain of Success in the Coming Election. The action of the president in al lowing the tariff measure to become a law without his signature is unfortu nate and unwise from a party point of view, but it is a clear and distinct falling away from that lofty ideal of duty and courage which Mr. Cleve- c1 land has been credited with. This s lofty ideal has hitherto tolerated no 1 half-way measures, no admixture of c compromise, no tampering with that i which is vital. And yet he now re- c fuses either to sign or to veto a meas ure on which the whole party neces- I sarily rests its hopes of success in the coming elections. If the measure was of such a char acter that Mr. Cleveland could not afford to affix his hand thereto it was of such a character that the party could not afford to shoulder it, and Mr. Cleveland, as the chosen leader of the party, should have saved the party from itself by interposing his veto. No doubt a veto would have created a storm of protest and criti cism, but it would have cleared the atmosphere and brought the party to a realizing sense of its duty. This is the line suggested by the lofty ideal attributed to Mr. Cleveland. The party muddle is now complete. The organization is on the threshold of a campaign big with results, and it is compelled to assume responsibil ity for a measure which its chosen leader and chief has denounced as perfidious and to wvhich he has re fused to affix his signature. Was ever party placed in such position lie fore? Every democrat in congress who voted for the bill has been slapped in the face and every dembcratic can didate in the country hlis had "his chance of re-clection sadly impaired by the refusal of Mr. Cleveland to sign the tarilli bill. Nor is this all. The party's majority in congress is seriously threatened, for it seems im possible tha tha e congressional candi dates of the party can make a suc cessful campaign by going before the people and assuming responsibility for a measure with tihe party's com mander-in-chief has distinctly repu diated and denounced, and which he has refused to touch with his hand. -Atlanta Constitution. (dem.). NO TAIRIFF ItEFORIM. Only a Tariff Change-An Indepcndent's View of the New Bill. After a succession of innumerable changes in details, of shifting coin promises anid "concessions," after a protracted period of the most open and shameless log-rolling and bar gaininllg ever seen at Waslhinlgton in connection with tariff legislation un der any party, the democratic sena tors have agreed upon the form of a tariff bill which they will pass, if they pass any measure at all. There is nothing to l)e said about it in its completed forml which has not been already said whlile it was in process of constructijon. It is a bill for tariff change, not for tariff reform; it has, as Senator Ioar said of it in his vigorous speecil yesterday, no recog nized princilple a:id no legitimate per centage; it differs from the McKl(in ley law only ill details--only inl giv ing a little more protection to cc' tain favored interests and a little less .to others not so favored; it betrays some evidence of a sectional spirit on the part of the fralmers, some of mo tives of revenge, but as a whole it has been shaped to suit timhe wishes of selish iaid money-making represent atl\ves of thlruc private interests which have been able to exert the strongpest ''pull.''-Providence Jour nal. RVaterson's Call to tie President. All the Courier-Journal's dark fore bodings with regard to tarif legisla tion have come to pass. The situa tion could not be worse, the outlook darker, the act with whose passage we are .threatened more disreputa ble. Action of sonme sort is urg ont. Hlas the president the su preme courage to retire the adminis tration from all responsibility and concern as to the message before the senate, by sending a message to con gress denouncing the whole proceed ing, calling the democratic masses to his side. and having the effect to stampede rand adjourn the entire rot ten rulImp concern. Nothing could be lost by such a proceeding. As matters are going, and in any event, democratic hopes are blffled, democratic pledges stulti fied. democratic prospects blighted. Better another two years of the McKinley tariff, pure and simple, another appeal to tile people, upon the old line, fair and square, with overybody forced to toe the mank, or to go over to the enemy, or to .take to the woods. If we lose, we should at least go down w'ith onlr flag flying, our honor intact; whereas victory, under present conditions, can only be purchased by the degradation of all things great and nioble in our nationll al life. litsides, it is not victory, but de feat, that stares us in the face. Courier-.lournal. A Grave Outlook. The state election in Maine on Mon day was a more sensational demon stration than tthe national election of 18!12. It was more lunusulal ill its character and more revolutionary inl its indications. It sthows a feeilng on the part of the republicans in one of the oldest states of the uniioni that there exists a reason for an extraor dinary protest against the politics ruling at W.shliingtoin, and on the part of the democrats a humiliating confession that they cannot say no to it. If it foreshadows ia general spread of this indignant disgust at the achievements of a so-called demo cratic administration that knows no law but itself, and that is not warmed by a single spark of American democ racy, then the outloolc for the party now burdened with it is indeed grave. -New York Sun (dem.).

NO MLore A.mericanl Wool. Omaha Special.-The passage of the tariff law has caused a stampede among the sheep owners to market all their sheep and raise no wool un der the free wool clause of the law.

DUBOIS ON THE POPULISTS Best Interestsof the State De mand Their Defeat. It is a Fiat Money Party and the Greatest 'Real Enemy Silver Has. Senator F. T. Dubois has returned from W\ashington and was interviewed by a reporter of tlle Statesmlan. to wlhom lie stated that he was lirnml convinced that tlie best initerests of tihe state demanded the defeat uof t he populists. lie held that the populistt party was not a true silver party; that it was for li ait money, and that by associating the silver cause with the idea of fiatism, it mluadn itself the greatest enemy with which silver iis to onlteind. Eastern people, lie said, are not nearly so much afraid of sil ver as they are of the liat doctrine ofI the populists.
