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.

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.

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.

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. 'lThe senator contin
