The "Washington Evening Star publishes daily at the
head of its editorial columns the following statement :
"The Evening Star has areg-ular and permanent Family Circu
lation much more than the combined circulation of the other
The Evening Star and TnE Times are both members
(in the sense of being subscribers) of the Advertisers'
Guarantee Company of Chicago, Illinois, a business con
cern which investigates foritself and on its sole authority
the circulation of its subscribers, and in connection with
the Fidelity Trust and Deposit Company of Maryland,
guarantees that circulation to 4, 116 general advertisers of
Auienca,under a bond of 50, 000 deposited with the North
western National Bank of Chicago. The circulation guar
anteed is PAID circulation, every paper counted and
certified to having to be represented by money received
and banked all unsold copies returned by newsdealers
or city and suburban agents, and all papers given to
eniploj'es, mailed to advertisers or sent to other news
papers in exchange, being rigorously excluded.
The statements of the Advertisers' Guarantee Com
pany for August and September are as follows:
District of Name of Average Daily Paid
Columbia. Publication. Circulation, except
Washington The Evening Star.. 26,481
Washing-ton The Times 38 461
District of Name of Average Daily Paid
Columbia. Publication. Circulation, except
Washington The Evening S"tar.. 26,472
Washington Tne Times 33 Q90
From which it will be seen that the "regular per
manent family circulation'' in other words, the paid cir
culation of the Evening Star, far from being "much more
than the combined circulation of the other Washington
dailies," AY AS IN AUGUST, 11,SS0 and IN SEPTFM-
BFR, 11,618 LESS than that
"It is easily possible" as the Evening Star
says every Saturday in stating its bona-fide circulation
for the week "it is easily possible for a newspaper with
an elastic conscience to swell its legitimate circulation
enormously, in order to deceive advertisers, by send
ing out thousands of papers to news stands, which are
returnable, and which are, in fact, returned;" but it
seems to have been impossible heretofore for a respect
able newspaper to come before the Washington public
with a falsehood so gross as the one now disproved and
which the Star repeats daily.
The circulation figures sent out by the Advertisers'
Guarantee Company are as binding on the Evening Star
as thev are on The Times they are sworn to every
month by both corporations and THERE IS FOR THE
STAR NO POSSIBLE ESCAPE FROM THE FACT
THAT DURING THE MONTHS OF AUGUST AND
SEPTEMBER THE AVERAGE DAILY PAID CIR
CULATION OF THE TIMES EXCEEDED that of
the Star by 11,799 copies.

seem to be mough, but the Evening Star does more;
IT SWEARS ;rO ONE CIRCULATION IN DEALING
WITH THE ADVERTISERS' GUARANTEE COM
PANY; while in communing with its own readers it
swears to another and greater one. The proof of
this statement is appended:
On every Saturday in August and September the
Star published 'a.t the head of the second column of its
second page a sworn statement of its circulation for
every day of the week ending on the preceding Friday,
the oath attached being as follows:
I soletnnlj' swear that the above statement represents only the
number of copies of the Evening Star circulated during the six secu
lar days endflii ; that is, the number of copies actu
ally sold, delivered, furnished or mailed, for valuable considera
tion, to bona-fide purchasers or
copies so counted are returnable to or remain in the office unsold.

JNO. C. ATHEY, Notaiy Public, D. C.
Compiling 'these figures thus officially given, and
striking the average, the fact appears that the average
paid daily circulation of the Star as sworn to as above
was in August; 27,512, and in September, 27,491. Yet the
figures sworn and certified to and guaranteed by the Ad
vertisers' Guarantee Company were for August, 26,481,
and for September, 26,472. The contrast is instructive

TnE TIMES prints its circulation daily, in a most
conspicuous place on its first page, the morning and

antees, is represented by papers sent to advertisers and
other newspapers and those delivered to news agents
(following the custom set by the Star) with the under
standing that unsold copies may be returned.
We publish these facts in the interest of honest
journalism and decent business methods, and we com
mend them to Washington advertisers without further
comment. The essential point is that the Paid Circu

In 1S10 Congress passed what is known,
as the McKiniey tarirr act, which waa
a careful revision or all existing tariff
laws, it largelj reduced internal tavea
and carcrullv revised the tariff kvks then
in force. If it had remained oa toe
statute book to this time, the policy of
protection and debt-paying would have
largily reduced the public debt and pre
vented the severe stringency tnat followed
It is tne declared policy of the Repub
lican party to restore and maintain the
pollcv embodied in the McKiniey tariff
act, and the recent tarirr act, known as
the Dingle tarifr. It is uuiortnnate ttmc
the beneficial provisions of the latter can
not be iu full operation for a year tic
more, owing to excessive importations tra
der the ilou-Gornian act, but I confi
dently believe that, within a year, under
the prevent law, the revenue-, of the Gov
ernment will be ample not onlj to jay
current expenditures, but a large sum
yearlj in reduction of the public debt.
To secure this desirable result the Re
publican part must be sustained, not only
