A Tribune or ttie'Peuple.
Bonry George, Tor twenty years the
apostte of theslugle tax theory, wasa Hvinp
Illustration of a truth that a personality
omiiodylng a principle makes n leader. A
nmoWue causes corruption sometimes,
enmity sometime-, injustice often, and it
Is ruled Uy selfishness. The loyally of
roeu lu ttoo personality of a great leader can
not be bought or sold; it inspires truthful
ness; It Is ruled by unselflshnss. This Is the
explanation or Henry George's influence.
He Wt..a, clean, brainy, honest juan, abso
lMtely devoted to fi. principle, and that was
why won bectune devoted to Win.
Like many typical Americans iu the first
Imtf century of the republic, George left
school ohj1 and began to support himself.
Be thus grtlned an Insight into the condi
tions of the common people which he never
lout- He seems to have exhausted the im
pulse Us money-making with his unsuccc&s
t Bi oarJI for gold in boyhood, when he
wmiiflurod aiiGttt California and as far
north British Columbia through ths
wHfl scenes of Argonaut days. His ideal
wu; never that of the millionaire, lie was
not a man win tried to 'be nth and faded
and who'-cnatiite was soured bydefeaU He
was poor liecause he cared more fr
eoutotbtug dee than for money; that was
ali. Aiaot bis last words to his followers
wore that if they tbouuht he could not be
elected it was Ms wish that they cast their
baHots for another candidate who would
to eowe ertoHt further his cause Wafc
there ver a deoagogue who made such a
ruitct as tWb? Did ever an ambitious man
doitbertUely advise his followers to be
loyal to the- case he represented rather
than to Him?
0e of tin- strongest convictions of Henry
Gerge was that freedom meant freedom
lor the weakaswollas thestrong; that a
roan had no more right to seine the
property of .another, through Juggling
with economic laws, than the feudal barou
nad l seixe liis vassals by force. His
1khj4:. ''Progress and Poverty,"' which ap
peared In 1&79, and brought him more
abubn and more admiration than most mou
Ket Ju the course of their lives, was a
protest agahtfii this: baronial condition of
the ecomic world, and it proposed a
remedy. It found readers, and it provoked
discussion, because of the reeling, which
has ben steadily growing stronger in the
Jart Eeneratlon, that America is not free
and cannot be free, until the national
Ideal is transformed from a dollar bill to
an Intelligent and honest vote; that by
exobauging the service of a hereditary
noblesse for that of a plutocracy, America
does not become a republic; that the man
who is down Utrough no Tault of his own
las right as well as the man wbo is up
through no particular virtue of his ow3.
George was the champion of the rights
of the common man, or free speech, and
ree disouwion, and of absolute govern
ment by the people. Iu these thlng6 he
went back to the twd-rock of the republic
the Idial which hovered before the eyes
of these who framed the Declaration. Not
to be bribed, not to bo intimidated, he
Brood as t representative of the American
workingmau, and it he did not work with
his hands, it was because his pen would
be of intiuKeiy more service. Thousands
found Iu him a spokesman, and although
he Is dead, his books live, and the spirit
of which they were the expression Is
very much alive, indeed, and cannot be
ignored in the future progress of the
TJnele John to the Hescue.
The present condition of Mr. Banna's
canvass In Ohio Is plainly Illustrated
In the letter wliich Mr Sherman has been
coached into writing to a gentleman
of the period in Cincinnati It is a
Queer sort of effusion, considered as an
effort to fire the Bucteye Bejiubllcan heart.
begins by stating that "by a ns'igo
carefully observed from the days of Jeffer
son to this time, the Secretary of Statu
j is precluded fiom shntlng In poHUcn dis
cus-Ion other than on foreign affairs."
Then, with a display of logic which we
oanriot enough ndnire7lhe vcnewible Sec
retary proceeds to discuss Politics, other
than foreign Affairs, with a bold hand.
Mo?t of his letter is composed of an essay
on gold monometallism, which "Uncle
Jehu" prei-ents In the form Jong familiar
to his ndmireis. He shows to hii own
entire satisfaction that, sine all the other
commodities measured in gold have fallen
on the average, therefoie gold has been
stationary all the time, and bimetallism
would be wicked: because It Would reduce
the present pinchaMng power of the yellow
metal. To avoid this criminal procedure
everybody In Ohio should vote for an
Indorsement of the Administration , and the
essayist'b good rriend, Maicus Alonzo
Hut the Secretary has tougher arguments
in stc-ck, and it is doubtful if the horny
bunded miners and laboiers of the State
can escape their full foice and effect. Mr.
McKinlcy has blessed them with a benefi
cent tarirr, which has sent up the price
of evi'ry earthly thing the people have
to buy, and at the same time kept wages
where ihey weie. For this they should
show gratitude, ab well as for the famine
In India, for which ho was the "advance
agent cf prosperity." After devoting
about 2, 500 words to these academic ex
cursions, Mr. Sherman comes down to
the ground and discusses the piospects
In Ohio In one small tnH-ender paragraph.
Under othei circumstances this might oc
casion surprise; but not now. The whole
Ohio business is a sore subject with "Uncle J
John." Never mind I He walks up to the
scratch and tackles It in as few woido
H says: "The election of a Senator
of the United States is involved iu the
election of a legislature. The only Re
publican candidate who is mentioned la
Mark A. llawiu His wide experience as
a business man; his generous and kindly
treatment of bis employes; his Kund judg
ment of all public questions or the dny,
ought to ecure for him the hearty up
port of all Republican members of the
legislature." All of which we couMder
very liberal on the part of "Uncle John,"
considering how he has been, and is go
ing to be, treated by tiie man he thus
Perhaps his action is not entirely volun
tary; though we must express thy hope
that Mr Ha win does not class his reasons
lor Mipnortiiig hlin with those he is quoted
as assigning for Senator Foraker' fealty
At Cincinnati the other day he i reported
to l.av; said i hat Foraker was on thi
stump for him, to u-c his own alleged
words, only Iwcause "Foraker had his
choice between tloiug right by me or go
ing to jali, with his frleud Kurtz Tor a com
panion " This is strange language for
one Sonalor from Onio to use respecting
his colleague. It makes us wonder what
particular kind of a choice "Uncle John '
was given, between writing the letter
under consideration, and ouiethiug else
not to be hinted af.'
Mr. Hnnna, as his gloririer state-, has
had "-wide business experience.' The
campaign fund of 1S06, and the sugar
schedule of 1897, not lo mention the Uniou
Paciilc deal, are evidence of the fact
About IiIk "sound Judgment" we are be
ginning to entertain doubts. Yesterday
he was represented as sending up a Mace
donian cry for Foraker to come and huve
him from Bryan; i robably as a part or
the continuous choice between the stump
and the calaboose. But oue would think
that Torafcer hardly could allow hiinseir ti
post as the helploss viotimof a bo.-s hold
iug sv sword of Damocles over his head
Still, -we do not know. The strangest
things arc happening in Ohio. Mark
Banna himself is one of them It may
be, after all, as he says, that Foraker
would rather "do the right thing"' by hici
than go ro jail. The proof of this pudding,
however, will be"iu chewiug the string
of the bog, when the election returns
shall lie In en" next Wednesday.
The Troubled Antilles.
According to some reports, Weyler was to
leave Cuba yesterday. As heretofore Matedj
he ha been ordered to remain unil! after the
arrival of Marshal Blanco. That does not
necessarily mean that he would do so. He
is a. scary kind of character, for one thing,
and he may think that Blanco is bringing
an order for his arrest. Again, he seems
determined to encourage and enjoy the
promised demonstration of the volunteers
In his favor, and against Americans, al
though that has bet-n forbidden from
Under these circumstances the nervous
ness nr foreigners, and among them many
Americans, In Havana is easy to under
stand. A force of 20,000 hair-drunken and
blood-thirsty armed men turned loose in
the btreets of the city, and luriamed with
rage against the people or America, might
be capable or some miKshief that would be
It is conceded that even one American
warship in the harbor would afford pro
tection to our citizens and render impos
sible iny outbreak against them which
Weyler and his mob may have in con
templation. It is both foolish and wicked
for our authorities to take chances agalnU
the possible contingencies of the situation.
If Weyler can find the opportunity and the
Instruments he will not leave the island
without some attempt to be revenged upon
the nation which he rogards as responsible
for his failure nnd downfall.
There is little or no prospect that any
aaval protection will be sent to our p&r
pie in Havana. The Government is busy
with the Ohio election and will be home
voting and stump speaking for the next
few days, That Is the matter of prime
importance. Any naval demonstration
would involve executive attention and
tend to keep the authorities in Washing
ton, whereas they all are needed in Ohio.
If Weyler and the volunteers should start
in and have n little St. Bartholomew cele
bration at the expense of American pris
oners and sojourners it would bo regretted
afterwards, of course; just aB Weyler's
past outrages and butcheries have been
mildly, but fcilently regretted. But theu
people cannot stop for small matters when
the Morgan-Scliiff deal and the Piatt
Croker deal have nearly ruined Banna';
prospect r the Senate.
How It May Affect Results.
More than ever the eyes or the nation
turn toward New York today. From Maine
to California the query rises: What effect
will the death of Honry George have upon
the election? As far as can bo judged, at
this distance, the heir of the dead lender's
strength, or most of it, will be Setli
Low. Those who fought with George in
his brave and forceful struggle against
Plattism and Crokerlsm, will be likely to
accept his words ot the last rew days as a
dying admonition. He told the people that,
If they did not think he could bo elected
they should vote for Mr. Low, who, liko
himself, stood as champion of honesty
and decency against the corruption and
crime of the machine system under its
present bosses. We should fancy that the
erfectof thin parting mohbage would be lo
carry a large proportion or the George vote
to the Citlene' Union candidate. The Jef
ferjniau Democracy, as such, no longer
stand a Uiancc of winning now that their
stundard-lMinier has fallen. Therefoie, their
adherents would be true to their duty, as
good citizens, If they threw their power
to the one representative of good govern
ment, who certainly can be elected ir a
majority of those who would have voted
for George now voto for Seth Low.
It is not to be believed that either Tam
many or Piatt will derive any recruits
from the disaster. The men who cheered
Henry George to the echo when he de
nounced those characters as deserving of
the penitentiary are not likely to find
their way Into either of their camps.
The situation Is greatly simplified by the
sad event of Mr. George's death. Today
there is no battle in New York except
one between the forces of Seth Low and
the Crokcr-Platt combine. The deal under
lying this syndicate organization is not
any longer even denied by machine Repub
licans. Croker is to hayu the city, if the
Federal and State of ficcholilers, patronage
and money can help him to it, and Piatt
Ih to have control of the legislature, ir
Tammany can secure It to him.
It mav be possible, after all, that tho
country has been mMakcn about the cor
ruptmn and wickedness of that Cleveland
deal -with the Schitf-Morgan syndicate
Mr. Judsoi Huiinon, who wus the Clevc
land Attorney General, emerges from hl

that the division of interest, and, the
wreckage of the Government claim agairiot

coure, it openly adopted, ought to remind
his majesty that he could accomplish ex

appear highly piobable.
In stating that Bryanism was dead In
Ohio, Senator Hauiiu probably said what
he wished, rather than what he really
beliewd. Mr. B.-yan has come to the State
to show him hi ndstake. This is a polite
recognition of a political debt. In 189'i
Mr. McKinley went to Nebraska and took
the stump ugainsb Mr. Bryan. Now the

Ilanna cannot muster dozen. The Union

After Long Years.
Dear, whom I would not know
If I passed you on the street,
So long and long and long ago
Are the days when we used to meet,
Sou may be glad to hear
That somewhere out of the blue
Come vague sweet dreams that bring you
That I often think of you;
That now and then I thrill
' At a rustle in the dark; "
That 1 start as the wind sweeps over the hill,
As I see the fire-fly's spark.
Somebody stepped on my grave?
Or somebody slipped out of j ears?
I cannot tell! There are ghosts that crave
A bit of the love that endures.

CABINET STRUCK A SNAG.
Tbe Spanish XotepVas Too Much of
The Cabinet struck a snag j'esterday
when it began tocbnslder the note of
Spain to America in. reply to Minister
Woodford's alleged .demands for speedy
action on, and prompt answer to, his inqui
ries as to friendly offices and a termina
Uon of the Cuban war. What was going
to happen must, however, have been
known to the President yesterday, and,
In fact, ever since the note was turned
over to him.
The President presented to the Cabinet
allmenibers being present excepttheSecre
taryof War and the Secretary of theNavy
the celebrated note. He explained that tho
document waH only an abstract containing
only about' one-fifth of the lang.iage of
the original, It, as Is usual in such cases,
was prepaid by the American minuter,
Who has mailed the restof the corpus delicti.
After some consultation it was decided
that the abstract was too skeleton-like
for a judgment by statesmen and further
consideration was postponed until the
President get6 back from his voting pre
cbiet. Ik iif 11 1- 'villi' the opinion
has been published far and wide I hat tho

theother hand, a Cablnetofricer was quoted
the other day as saying that the reply was
satisfactory. As Mr. McKinley- has gone

The Presidentsubmitted his Thanksgiving
proclamation to the Cabinet. It is pub
lished elsewhere in The Times. They say
that this is the first time that such a statu
paper has been launched previous to the
election, although Grover Cleveland did
emit one on election day. Tho word
America appears nowhere in the document.
The second sentence of the proclamation
is worthy of Tythagoras. It begs all the
questions, assumes all the premises, en
larges all the conclusions, and Is subscribed
'Ipso Dixit." The paper is a glorlHcation
of the modified sugar schedule.
There has been some adverse criticism
of the President on account of the reasons
assigned for exploiting the Thanksgiving
proclamation so early in the game nnd so
long before election day, and especially
election day in Ohio. It is necessary to
go back to 1877 to find a proclamation
Issued on October 29. The last four
proclamations were November 3, 1893,
November 1, 1894, November 4, 1895, No
vember 4, 1896. The last October procla
