Charleston Republican convention. The

Tbe Rsutsw, though the orgaa of tbe

THK *XNATK»8 PARTISAN WORK.
Wi bop« the partisan Republican Senat«
is now aatifflwd with the result of its rejec
tion of tbe President's fair and equitable
fisheries treaty with Canada. As will be
seen by the President's manly, counigeona
and cod*rretire letter to OoDgress pub
Imbed thin morniog, tbe only coarse now
left open to bim, by which tbe grievance*
of Americans may possibly be remedied, is
Retaliation. Tbe Senate has rejected
a patriotic treaty which wonld dis
pose of the matter amicably
and all tbe President can do uow is adopt
hostile measures. We repeat, we hope the
partisan Senat« which appear* to think
itsdf entirely irresponsible, is satisfied
with the result of it» work for the Republi
can party.
The Senate may think itself irresponsi
ble for the grave consequence* that may
follow, bnt the people will bold it to a
strict account.
1 KCORI> PULLING.
Tbe Intelligencer again rakes ap the
remnants of its old and long since demol
ished "argument" to show that the Demo
cratic party is a "free trade party." This
old, standing editorial is qnite familiar to
the Intelligencer'» weary readnrs. It con
sist* of a f«w unintelligible quotations
from "Democratic leader«," Henry
Gkubue, for instance. And this leads us
to inquire when tbe high priests of Democ
racy ordained Mr. Gkukue its a Democrat
ic leader. Hknry GKOKiiK is «oing about
the country "on his own hook" lecturing
on Free Trade. This is his businees.
With what he says or thinks tbe Demo
cratic party bas no more to do than the
Republican. The tact that tbe Intelligencer
s red med to the awful extremity of quot
ing H us h y Ukokok in support of its non
sensical assertion that tbe Democrats are
for free trade, shows at once aud very
plainly that it can lind no Democrat to
quote To be sure it cays that Senator
Va »CK, of South Carolina, said that the
^;»nth wart» free tr.»de Well, that is the
business of the South, just a-) the nou-par
tisan demand free trade in the West and
Northwest is the business of thive sections.
But Senator Vaxcr never said tbe Demo
cratic party wanted free trade; he did ►ay
however, that it did not\ hut this ot course
the Intelligencer, which was never known
to print both sides of the case, couldn't
quote.
T|>"" « uonionMi which Hknry
Wattkrson wrote, or «poke, some six or
«i^ht year« *go, which can Im paralelled
iu free trade sentiment exactly with what
Gakkikld, Abthi'R, Shkkma.v and all
ih« Republican leaders of any prominence
ssid at about the same time and later.
Candidate Harkisos was a "free trader,"
to use the Kepohlican term, fonr or five
yearn after Mr. Wattkeson h~.d reformed
.«.nd the Kst time Levi P. Morton cat in
Contre*« he voted to pat saU on the tree
lint, which tue West Virginia Republican
platform now swears will rnin ns
The Republican organs can hardly quote
a straight sentence from two Democrats,
who ever s«d they wanted free trude, and
are compelled to go back half a century
for a most doubtful argument.
It amonnts to just this: That i: we are
to depend npon the past records of prom;
ment statesmen tor onr arguments in this
campaign the Democrats have got a very
clear case of free trade against the Kepoh
lican party.
INTELLIGENTER BOSH

To thr KtUor of the R'tjinter:
Sir:—I enclose a clipping from the
htirUigencer on Judge Fleming's candi
dacy, coal interest and the coal business of
NV.?st Virginia.
Judge Kieiuiug cannot consistently stand
on the platform of the Kat'.oual I»ein«>« r«tt

••Hshire, tid, cur $2.12 or money; North
umberland, Hi 3 aud 61, or $2 12 onr
mosey; South Wales, l(M 6d, or $2 62 our
money.
Some ol the above coals reach the Pacific
co<st in California, for the simple reason
that American coal can not be got there
tor want of tran«portation. Besides these
c >als entering our ports, there is more or
te*« Nova Scotia coal getting in along the

figures that American coal im «old Ht, the
tarnt of which can be brungbt t. o. b. cam

lor best grade« of coal.
The very superior Pittsburg bent quality
of gas coai chu be bought for $1 25 per tou,
thousand* ol too« being sold every day for
that, mucb of it going to Caudfeand other
foreign market*. ™
Sni h, Mr. Editor, in a true statement of
facta, as can be veritled by a perusal of the
Com' Trade Journal, a publication devoted
exclusively to coal men, coal bu«ine»>8 and
ooal mining.
Yet the average Republican politician of
West Virginia, with Gen. Gofl' at the head
and the hUtlhgcncrr to aid them in their
work, will «lop over with snch ho*h Yon
see by tbe above we are selling more coal
abroad than h coming into tha country.
We won Id sell ten times as much if we
coold only get the transportation for it
We are paying more for mining than the
Knglish do, if we can believe Mr. Jarrett
or tbe statistics on that subject
Why then sboald these people attempt
to impose on coal owners, operators or
coal miners, witn such bold laced non
sense?
I have heard it asserted over and over
again that if it wv not for protection afford
ed tbe coal operators and miners by tbe
government 'bat there wonld be no coal
mined in tbe State for shipment
I say this is tbe song of a demagogue
and nobody else; there ia not a word of
truth in it as »a investigation of tbe
farts will prove. Any ooal man will show
tbe West Virginia politician, Gen. Gofl or
tbe InMligmcrr tbe publication referred
to; it ia published weekly, and all coai
men bny it From one who likes

TsrhkHadtc. Ij»d , Angott 22 — Much
surprise was canned to-day upon the ap
pearance of an alleged interview in the In

New York, where he gave Chairman Qaay
some vaJnable pointers. This will un
doubtedly go the round of Republican or
gan«. The alleged interview, originally,
is underntood tn have been in a Pittsburg
paper. As Mr. Koltern ;a the present Dem
ocratic Mayor of thin ci 'y, and han just re
turned from the East, the article created
great surprise. Mayor Koleem stated to
night: "The alleged in ter vie* with me is a
tissue of falsehoods, as no interview of the
kind ever occurred. It is fiction, par* and
simple throughout. I said to everyone in
