HIS DISCOURSE ON TARIFF NOT
TO BE USED IN DEIVIOCRATIC CAMPAIGN BOOK. ,.v WASHINGTON, June 10.?Repre." Bourke Cockran's tariff speech which he delivered in the House a short time before adjourn'fe.Hk meat, with the apparent" purpose of **. ^ ? "T,mnnn,n , i_ auyxjteu uy mis. X/VMAW.*?*v? as a document to be used in the coming National campaign, is novo proving a source of no little trouble and Ifes!!? discontent to Chairman Cowherd, of the National Democratic CongresP?fe sfonal committee. The speech is one which is easily recalled, and was heard and read hy thousands of peof'V" ' -plev In it Mr. jCockratt roundly denounced, in the most caustic language ho could employ, the entire 'd . tariff system. He also tool; occasion tjpl . to go out of his way and answer a question of Representative John Dalzell, of Pittsburg, in a . most disl?t"\ courteous way, for which he was gtv- ; ? en a severe tongue lashing several days later. Mr. Cockran was asked to deliver - the speech. Democratic leaders, re- ' ' c.tlzing the imperative need of some 7?;. 1 effective argument against the tariff inorder to successfully meet the Re- , s-vr d DUbllcans on the stump, selected 111 Oockran as the one best prepared for 'y.- the difficult task. He was assured > s that it would be adopted as a campaign argument and redound to his own reputation and the good of the party. Cockran Went to Extreme, g With this assurance he prepared it with care. What he said was to the consternation of his fellow Demoi'-V-; crats both in the House and throughV; out the country. They expected someI thing radical, but had no idea that ; he would go to the limit he did. Not / only did he advocate free trade, but likewise favored the abolition of every custom house in the country, rHe went a step beyond any of his predecessors in denunciation of the taran ana me sugesuon 01 remeaies ?|l|fc;t? cure what he called a blot upon . the body politic. Chairman Cowherd is now selecting material for his first campaign EBSp^ext' book to be issued immediately after the meeting of the National convention and to contain, among other things the letters of acceptance of both the Presidential and Vice-Presidential nominees and the platform -<.- adopted at St. Louis. Mr. Cockran's tariff speech is not the one selected. / Instead Chairman Cowherd' has , ' chosen one delivered by John Sharp - Williams, the minority leader of the Kouso, some months before Cockran delivered his more eloquent, but less politic one. As a result of this Cock- I , ran is sorely disappointed and his ; '', friends are disposed to consider it . d a deliberate affront and breach of faith. |v .. Requests as to why such action j v has been taken have resulted in the i reply that the Congressional commit- ; ' tee desires to see what action the j National convention takes on the tar Iff question before incorporating a p , speech so radical as the New YorknY: - Sn',o tovf hflrtlf fr?7* rrpnprfil O i ff 11 - fel.f: Iatzon. This reply loses effect in face | of the fact that the speech of Wil- I Hams lias been accepted as rep re- ] sentlng the views of the Democracy ; fpv% on the tariff, several weeks before j fte^Cr the convention meets, and is now in- j g;: corparated in a book to be issued, llffe'- - Admission of Fear, ft The plain truth is that, the commit- j ?i;' - tee is afraid to use the Cochran ; j- speech, knowing that to do so would rose the votes of thousands of conservative and sober-minded members of the party. It would be gladly used with omissions, here and there, wore 'd it not for the fact that to do so would be an admission of fear as to the ;; parts cut out and become at once ap. parent to those who heard the speech 5>\ or read it in the Congressional Record. . Chairman Cowherd is placed in a |X most embarrassing position. He is ig: met with the agreement, reached by .party leaders, to use the speech, and S . on the other hand comes face to face gfe with the question of good politics g; and party expediency. The outcome tc-v, will probably be a frank admission f;' ' that the party fears to print a speech ?|| for which it asked and which reflects > the judgment of many of its leading members. few The Unsatisfied Brother. ^^j';.;;Too cold for him in winter; 11* Sl"lUg UU o pUI. 111L. ^gg;f Jn. sumer time it's blazin' EfflSiAln the valleys.

SUPERSTITION Paris Temps.] Thr-r^ is tniich talk in St. Peters burg and in other Russian cities of the probability that the Czar will go to the seat of war. A newly discovered phophecy of St. Serafin, it is said, will induce him to take supremo command of tlic Russian forces in the East. Last July, it will be remembered, the remains of St. Serafln of Sarof were carried into a church specially built for their reception. Father Serafin, as he was commonly called, died, about 70 years ago in the desert of Sarof and was buried near his hermit hut. Some little time after his death a well not far from his grave was discovered, whose water had curative qualities. The church, I after due investigation, concluded* that the well was holy, and the saint was canonized. I^ast year the Emperor and all the imperial family were present at the removal of the saint's remains. The Czar himself and three grand dukes carried the precious burden to the place prepared for it; and it was the Czarina Eeodorovna?wno. by the way, of late has become very pious?who designed the drapery and the decorations mark the new place where the bones of the saint lie. I Here is one of the predictions said | to have been made by St. Serafln: | "During Ihe year following the re! moral of my ashes hence to a church a terrible war will let loose upon Russia, and it will cause much suffering. The Czar will go to that war. I will ISO with him. and we will tear to pieces the apron of England." This prediction came first to light last .July. It. was discussed in several court circles, and great importance was attached lo the promise of the saint to accompany the Czar to the front. As to the "apron of England" which is to he torn to tatters, that does not necessarily mean war with England. In all probability the "apron" means Japan, by which England is shielded in her war against Rusia. It is also contended that St. Serafin was in reality Alexander I., who retired to a convent after his involuntary participation in the' murder of his father, Paul I. Later on he became the hermit of the desert ol' Sarof. This, it is said, is the real reason why the Czar and the impe rial iamuy were present at me seeon d funeral of the prophet. Cupid's Hunt. Hunt.
