And our impression on this point is duo less to particular facts than to the general opinion expressed by our informants. On all sides we have found the result of long person al experience to he the conviction that trade is essentially corrupt. In tones of disgust or discouragement, reprehension or derision, according to their several natures, men in busi ness have, one after another, ex pressed or implied this belief. Omit ting the highest mercantile classes, a few of the less common trades, and those exceptional cases where an en lire command of tho market has been obtained, the uniform testimony of competent judges is that succeas is incompatible with strict integrity. To live in the commercial world it appears necessary to adopt its ethical code; neither exceeding nor falling short of it—ueituer being l^s honest more honest. Those who sink below its standard are expelled ; while those who rise above it nro esther pulled down to i! or ruined As, in self-defence, the civilized man becomes savage among sarages ; so, it seems that in self-defence the sorupoloua trader is obliged to lie come as little scrupulous as hi* com petitors. It has been said lbat the law of the animal creation is—"Eat and be eateu and of our tradio community il may be similarly sai that its law is—Cheat and be cheat ed.

For the Reveille.] Thankless indeed must be the heart that does not say grace for the bounti ful abundance that nature spreads this season for all her living creatures. The fertilizing rains have fed and cleaned every species of vegetation, and the tonic of the sunshine has braced and perfected them. The fields are covered with the raoet promising crops. The fine stalks of cotton are "boll-ded" from top to bot tom, while squares and blossoms crowd each other upon the already loaded stems. If the worms, that menace to agriculturist, do not appear, all will be well. It is almost impossible to in duce the average darkie to employ an insecticide. the Intelligent and experienced horticul turists use this remedy to destroy insects that depredate upon the most delicate fruit and vegetables. Proper ly applied, a few dollars worth of Paris green will save many hundred dollare* worth of cotton. I know of a planter who purchased a barrel, and could not persuade his tenants to use a pound on the worms that ravaged his fields. One old colored brother "was skeered his calf, dat he let run m de big field case it never bothered de cotton, would git pizined." Another "had four gooses, and knowed dey would eat de pizined worms an' git killed." And the conse quence was they did not make enough cotton to pay the interest on their rent provision debt, and they did not a cent either. It would pay the land owners to employ intelligent pub lic officers to attend to the business of applying the Paris green if necessary. It is a comforting thought that the yield of com is a "fait accompli.'' The "waving green plumes of Mondamin" are worth thousands of dollars to this ccunty, if they are harvested in the shape of fodder. The growth of peas and sweet potatoes and pindera, is rank and tropical m its luxuriance. The hills ana valleys and tender grass for our humble four footed friends. In rich gardens where the weeds are not permitted to "grow broader and higher' than the vegeta bles, the yield of the latter is phenome nal. Even the bees and the butterflies really seem more abundant and bril liant than usual, as they dnnk from the tiny tankards of flowers, bending from every side. It baç been sometimes said that wo men make better fanners than men. I think, if such is the case, it must be because they have grasped the idea that one cannot anticipate one's revenues, and spend twice their amount, without going down with the great "insolvent herd," into the deep waters. That to live within one's income, even if it is but a hundred dollars a year, is the key to success and an hon orable life and death in this most beau tiful oountry that the blessed sun shines upon. Quicn Sabe. and arc covered with fresh Abandoning the Old Lies. It is worth while calling the atten tion of Democrats to the fret that Re publican newspapers are unanimous now in asserting that "the consumer pays the tax. " For the time being they have utterly aban toned their o that "the foreigner paya (be tax." The proposition to levy a duty on the raw materia] of sugar, nine-tenths of which is imported, and only one-tenth grown in this country, has been met by unani mous insistence from Maine to Oregon that this will compel the consumer to pay every cent of the tax. Morp than this, they insist that every cent of tbe Vax (A $2.80 per ton proposed to be lev ied on the foreign refined product for the protection of the refiners, will go to the refiners and not one cent to their workmen. The revenue tax, they now assert, must be paid by tbe people into the treasury ; foreigners will not jay it. The protection tax, they now assert, is to the owners of the workmen get nono. he paid by the p refineries and Protection is theft. The protection ists themselves have made this plain by their arguments to defeat the taxa tion of tho raw material of sugar which would bring in a splendid revenue to the treasury, because by so doing a few planters, who produce less than one uired, would be ; and because tenth the product reqi accidentally benefited they wish also to defeat a reduction from the McKinley tax of $11.20 per ton, to the proposed tax of $180 per ton. It remains only now for the Dem ocrats of this country to do their duty at the next election, by pressing home to their Republican friends the facts admitted by the protection leaders. The line between honesty and theft will then be clearly drawn. It will be the only question in November next, and those who take the side of theft will do so because they are in sympathy with it, not because they are not fully aware of the self-confessed hypocrisy, fraud and lies of protection.— T.

J., forwarded to senator rötest against his tar that he sup Sraith a strong protest ai iff policy, and demanded — — — r port the president and the house in their efforts to redeem Democratic pledges. Englewood is part of Smith's home district, and the letter is by many of his personal friends letter says, after protesting against Smith's action in opposing tne Wilson signed . The bill: "We wish to emphasize one or two facts which you seem to have forgotten. In your contest for the senatorship it was distinctly stated as a reason for your electiou that you were in full ac cord with the policy of president Cleve land with reference to the tariff, and shared with him distinctly all his views upon that subject ''It was likewise stated as a reason for defeating governor Abbott that in you we would have a representative of clean politics and a high standard of political virtue. Under this impres sion the Democrats of New Jersey were satisfied. ''But it is with extreme regret that we now have to inform you that the confidence hitherto existing is fast giv ing way to distrust, and that yoar pres ent attitude is even arousing doubts whether your course is influenced by patriotic motives and a due regard for the opinion, wishes, and interests of a vast majority oi your constituents. If you persist in the policy you are now pursuing relative to tariff reform you will materially assist in disorganizing the Democratic party by bringing dis credit upon it, and you will succeed in having the state of New Jersey at the next election swept by the Republicans. "This may be plain talk, but it is our duty to speak plainly to you that you may understand that the Democrats of our section are not in accord with you B the policy which yon are now pur suing." suing." a A Peculiar Cate.

George, of Missis sippi, was elected to the United States senate as a Democrat, not aa a Popn l ist, a Debsite, or an Anarchist. Yet he has introduced in the senate a bill for compnlsory arbitration, supplying the compulsion in precisely the same form in which it appears in the sim ilar measure fathered in the house by the Populist, Davis, of Kansas. Legislative ingenuity never invent ed a more diabolical scheme. Senator George proposes to force arbitration upon railway companios engaged in inter-state traffic by turning the com panies over to the tender mercies of their rioting employees in case the employers decline to arbitrate. The first section of this extraordi nary bill provides that whenever tho employees propose an arbitration nn der the terms of the act of 1888, if the corporation refuses or neglects to arbitrate, then "itshall not be lawful for any United States court or judge to grunt any injunction against said t>loyec 8 , or any of them, or to make any order requiring or author izing any United States control or in any manner interfero with the conduct of said employees, or any of them." The second section provides that when a proposition to arbitrate is made by the employees of an inter state company, which is in the hands of a receiver appointed by a United States court, it shall be the duty of tho receiver to go to arbitration. There may be nothing to arbitrate ; but if any of the employees think they havo a grievance, the farco of arbitration must be goue through with. The third section provides that no obstruction to the running of trains shall be considered as obstruction to the mails if any passenger or freight car is attached to the train on which tho mail is carried. That is to say, tho United States government shall lose its right to protect its mails whenever the mail car is attached to a regular traiu, or the mail bag is conveyed by a locomotive whioh also pulls passengers or ordinary freight. This is just sueh a bill as Debs himself might havo framed. Per haps he did framo it ; the last section smells of Debs. Here we have com tion with a vengeance. Arbitrate or bo outlawed ! Arbitrato at the dic tation of two or more of yourstriking ■m, or be turned i<> Um mob, with full license granted them pillage, wreck, burn, maim, and murder I Was any such bill as this ever introduced in the American congress since the federal legislature held ils first session in this town in the spring and sumraor of 1789 ? The country will be far along tho road to anarchy before such a meas ure can pass cither house of congress. Bat how is it possible that a senator calling himself a Democrat consents to let his name stand ou this bill to promote rioting, arson, and murder on the part of discontented employ ees ? Mr. George, of Mississippi, ought to be thoroughly ashamed of himself. If he is not, his constitu ents ought to be ashamed of him.— N.
