Me Caveness writes to The Ga
zette that tariff cannot bo an issue in
the next election because our national
expenses aro so great that no tariff re
duction is possible and the Democrats
cannot contend for it without danger of
creating a deficit in the national
treasury The gentlemans conclusions
are opposed to tho lessons of experi
ence A reduction of tho tariff would
increase the publie revenue because it
would stimulate importations on which
a tariff is collected A reduction of 25
per cent in the rate of duties estab
lished by the McKinley bill would in
crease our customs receipts 50 per cont
The McKinley bill is avowedly for the
purpose of excluding foreign goods
and if it succeeds in its purpose tho
collections on import duties will come

A state convention of the Peoples

Lamb who designates August 17 as the

This will bring the Peoples party
together a few weeks after the Fort
Worth meeting of the Alliance element
that oppose the subtreasury At the
Fort Worth meeting it will bo made
known whether the subtreasury or tho
antisubtreasury fellows are running
the Alliance in this state It will be
profitable to watdh the effect of the
Fort Worth meeting upon the Peoples
party movements and their utterances
at Dallas
If the subtreasury wing shall pre
vail at Fort Worth the Peoples party
which in this state is tho subtreasury
part of the Alliance will be in such
high glee that wo may listen for some
resounding enunciations of wisdom
from the Dallas meeting Tho fiat
will be put forth in an aggressive spirit
that those who aro not with us aro
against us and all Alliance members
who do not fall in with the Peoples
party movement will bo made to feel
that they are in a crowd where their
presence is unwelcome
But if the opposition to tho sub
treasury shall bo able to muster a ma
jority at Fort Worth and give a strong
expression to their feelings against
that foolishness their action wilHiavo
a strong influence in checking a too
exuberant outpouring of folly at the
Dallas meoting For as it now stands
the subtreasury is the life of the Al
liance in Texas and the Alliance is the
life of tho third party Lot tho Al
lianeo but givo official utterance against
the subtreasury and tho third party
having nothing to rest upon in this
state will fall to the ground
The speech of the plaintiff s counsol
in the baccarat gambling case now on
trial in London Is a striking piece of
insolence and toadeating His attack
upon tho Prince of Wales was meas
ured by English tradition and feeling
little short of treason It was tho bold
est defiance of the royal divinity that
has ever been made deliberately and
publicly by anj Englishman of conse
quence A hundred years ago the rash
barrister would havo been committed
to prison for his utterances Two or
three hundred years ago he would have
been rushed to the block Now he is
only frowned upon by tho representa
tives of royalty while tho greater part
of the multitude applaud his words
But if this part of Sir Edward
Clarke s speech was a challenge to
the arrogance of blood his treat
ment of tho Wilsons who were defend
ants and witnesses in the case was a
brutal compensation therefor in its
truckling to alleged noble gentlemen
who were his clients and witnesses
The Wilsons a widowed mother and
her son apparently belong to tho
wealthy commoners who have had the
misfortune to earn wealth instead of
inheriting it from some remote ances
tor who stole it Theywcie shown to
b3 very respectable people but they
were overpowered with a consuming
desire to get into British society As
they had money they could gie at
tractive entertainments and these en
tertainments wero frequented by the
Prince of Wales Sir William Gordon
Cumming Lord Coventry and other
blueblooded gamblers who had very
little money but plenty of tone It
is of this that tho plaintiff s counsel
spoke when he said Yes they un
doubtedly havo money but even if Sir
William GordonCumming would con
descend o take it from such a source
I shall not ask tho jury to fix the dam
ages beyond a nominal sum
It is then in the opinion of tho coun
sel a condescension for his noble client
even to cheat such common people as
the Wilsons out of their money For
it is no longer to be doubted that tho
Honorable Sir William is proven to bo
a card sharper It does not need tho
evidenco of the lowly Wilsons to prove
this to bo so for his royal highness
tho Prince of Wales has testified to
enough to convict him
We speak of tbeso things to show
that while among Englishmen that
high veneration for royalty which used
to set it above common mortals is de
clining the opposite feeling of con
tempt for such as have not blood is
as rancorous as ever If a man wins
riches he is considered fit to be toler
ated by the aristocracy for the purpose
of plucking him but their use for him
is at an end when he ceases to let him
self be used as a victim
The advocates of the plan that con
templates the loaning by the govern
ment of money directly to the people
upon land should recall tho nature and
cause of the political upheaval in Kansas
last fall There is a grand moral in it
if rightly understood It is so obvious
and so plain the wonder is that some
body had not long ago pointed it out
But no matter about that its force
and application are not at all lessened
or otherwise affected by delay
The biiuation in Kansas was briefly
that from twoJhirds to fourfifths of
the land in the state was pledged to
Eastern loan companies for money the
rate of interest ranging from 6 to 9 per
cent with commission added For
whatever reasons th tariff monetary
Fim Wr
contraction unfavorable 1 seasons or
what not the farmers found them
selves unable in many instances to
meet tho interest even on their loans
Many of them were carried for a time
by the companies but they still re
mained to a largo extent unable to
meet their obligations and ruin
speedily overtook them following as it
did in the footsteps of tho sheriff
Discontent sprang up all over the
state The cause of their hardship
and ill fortune was attributed to the
neglect or unfaithfulness of their
rulers state and Federal With a
vengeance born of poverty and despair
they rushed into politics overthrew
the machine wiped out the old regime
and elected a lot of new men to execute
their will in the state and Federal leg
In tho state legislature last winter
these new men introduced measures of
the most sweeping and revolutionary
character Some of them were ex post
facto in character and others not
only impaired tho obligations of con
tracts but went so far as in some in
stances to wipe them out entirely
The motives underlying this species
of radical legislation were of course
present relief tc the farmers The le
gal right to foreclose mortgages was to
bo abolished or hold up for a time
The right to redeem was to be extended
indefinitely and if memory serves a
bill was introduced in the lower house
canceling many loans At any rate
the policy of tho legislation alluded to
was plainly in tho direction of repudia
tion and much of it would have been
enacted had not the senate stood in
the way
Now suppose that all the money
loaned on land in Kansas had come
from the government instead of from
private sources Would not tho temp
tation to repudiate when debts and
poverty overtook the borrower ee too
powerful to resist Would not that be
made a political issue and the rallying
cry of thousands of farmers who would
see in it a release from debts and em
barrassment without visible injury to
any individual There can be it
seems but one answer to this query
The truth is that tho borrowing of
money has been the ruin of thousands
and millions Borrowing on land by
by hopeful and credulous Kansas farm
ers merely because they had tho right
and could find the money has been
their ruin It has likewise ruined a
multitude of loan companies on whose
hands were thrown millions of acres of
unmarketable and unprofitable land
If the government instead of private
concers had been tho loaner the dis
aster would be general instead of con
fined to one state

Three hours were again occupied by the
council in doing one hours work tho
principal diversion being chewing
the rag to use the expressive
slang of tho streets It was hot
in that council room and
tho aldermen evidently were impressed
with the idea that it was oasier to talk than
to transact business and as a result an ad
journment was taken at 11 oclock until this
evening in order to finish up the budget
less than onethird of which was dis
posed of last night The waterworks com
mittee reported tho arrangements agreed
upon for tho acceptance of tic electric light
plant and recommended its adoption
The question of a bridge across the
Trinity came up and after lengthy discus
sion was referred to the committee The
waterworks committeo was given authority
to sink tho well on Tuckers hill an addi
tional 1000 feet if necessary

an Eddy patent suspension bridge across

bridge company to build one for 525
o53 or 23000 as the council mi ht
determine was accompanied by tha
report of the street and alley committee
signed by Alderman Dartar only recom
mending the Matlock proposition
This brought out a storm of
words Alderman Darter speaking vehe
mently in favor of the proposition and say
ing that he knew the council could never
get another as favorable proposition
Alderman White stated tho bridge was of
the Howe truss patent known as the best
yet devised by man The iron
was as good as it ever was
Kew timbers could be put in and
a new floor laid for less than iOOOO and the
bridge would bo good for five or six j ears
Alderman Darter was opposed to any
further attempts to use the old bridge
Alderman Clements said that traffic across
the bridge must either be stopped at once
or the city would have a damage suit on
hand beside which 512000 would be only a
drop in the bucket
T J Matlock was called on and said ho
was there simply for the purpose of build
ing a bridge on terms of payment that
would suit tho council
Alderman Armstronir said when the
North Side bridge proposition was up
that or a similar proposition was
up and he fovored it instead
of the North Side bridge Now that they
had decided upon the North Side bridgo
and it was nearly completed lot the people
trom the north and west uso it if they
didnt want to a good ford was near

Fopt Worth Tex June 91S3L
To His Honor tho Mayor aad City Council

claimed they had complied with tho orig

Englishmen who had invested J5000000
in Texas tho bulk of it being hi Fort Worth
and country tributary to it It happened
that Glen Walker of Fort Worth was

England at the time Mr Walker is well
known to be conservative and his view
aro therefore of value He was called jipon

Texas today for 5 an acre that being tho
outside price but similar land in Kansas
tho adjoining state could not bo bought for
less than 13 to S20 and in Missouri and
Illinois further North the same kind of
