Mr. C\o.a3tonc.
The repoj ted resignation of The
Right. Hon. Vv. B. Gladstone, of tltc
ofriee of Prime Minister of Client
Britain, is eorifrnned. For sometime
past, rntno's have been afloat that
stich a step on the part of the "Grand
Old Man"' hail boon resolved upon.
Oil account of threatening eye-troub?
le, as well as because of his advanced
age, he being now in his 85th year.
It is said that his resignation of office
has boon accelerated by a rapid der
vclopment of cataract in one of his
eves, anil by increasing deafness.
Whatever the cause, the fact remains
that the Koni able Gentleman lias
tendered his resignation as Prime
Minister to Isis sovereign; and that
the Earl of Rosche rry has been ashed
to succeed him in this office: Lord
Itosebcrry hold the portfolio of For?
eign Secretary in Mr, Gladstone's I
Ministry, and is known to possess
statesman?like qualities in au emi?
nent degreo.but that he is not wholly
acceptable to all of the move radical?
ly advanced of Mr. Gladstone's fol?
lowers was demonstrated by proceed?
ings which followed the announce
meat of his chief's relinquishment of
the reins of government.
Having in strong terms advocated
in the House of Commons an attack
upon the British Gonstitatiou,
through one of the three estates of ihe
Realm, tho House of Lords, thereby
raising a groat storm of excitement
and expectation, the Honorable Gen
tleiiia'n retires, ieaylng to others the
rosponsibility and effb, t of an attempt
ed execution of an iil-c'oncealcd des?
ign upon the power aud prerogatives
of ihe peers. What the effect will
be on the political future of the
country we uo not pretend to foresee.
But exciting limes may be looked for
in that country;
Let the outcome be what it may, j
by the change now made, a promi?
nent ami highly popular figure has
been, partially; if not altogether; re?
moved from the busy political arena.
As was stated in our columns a
few weeias ago, Mr. Gladstone, after
a I rifliaht career at Oxford t'nivcr
sitv, entered Parliament in 1831 or
1832, as a high churchman and an
advanced Tory. He has since con?
tinued to occupy a seat in the House
of Commons, being now one of its
oldest members. For the greater
part of the time he has held office,
under several Prime Ministers, ulti
rnately succeeding to that high posi-]
tinn, nnd occupying it on several oc-|
casious.
During hw^mliii?i^l career, his]
viev.-;.-ha v.-' undergone groat radical'!
ehats^esi oxhitning QhatiieTian -1 ikb |
lines, and which, although making i
him popular with the masses; have!
net only tended to create distrust in
ihetoindM of his collengno?, bat hare'
exposed him towri?c onslaughts on
the part of political Opponenten
Starting out as a Tory or advanced
Protectionist, then becoming succes?
sively a Corn Law repealer, a Liber?
al Conservative, a Liberal, an ad?
vanced Liberal, a Kadical, a HOTfte
Ruler, and then on his very last par?
ty vote, going'into tho looby with, his
obi friends, the Tories,?then, as it
v.vre, completing the circle]?he is
present to our ideas as a man of un?
stable miml.
His mental qualities and aceom
j pi ish meats are of the most varied
character, and of the very highest
order, for whether, as statesman, or?
ator, financier, writer, or scholar, he
shines with equal brilliancy, as a
star of tho first magnitude, and,
coupled with his untiring energy in
aSonc and necessarily busy career,
so j ? ?
he justly obtains groat admiration as
a man possessing "all the talents,"
and as being tiie unique figure of our
j day.
He lias been credited by eminent
statesmen with having a restless
ambition fur power. He has, on
more than one occasion, quickly ami
radically changed his course of ac?
tion, notably, his efforts to disestab?
lish his hash Church, and his going
foyer to what is termed the Irish or
Home Rule Party; after initiating
severe measures] including imprison?
ment against several of its most
prominent leaders. During our late
civil war. his sympathies were with
the South, causing a loss of such
friends as John Bright and Fiich
ard Cobden.
When we reflect that Mr. Glad?
stone was present as a member of
Parliament not only at <^r,een V.icto
ra's Convention in 1838, but. also at
the world renowned celebration of her
jubilee; as sovereign of the British
Ipmpire, it will be evident that dur?
ing bis lengthy Parliamentary career
mighty events arid change* have oc
1 e.o red. For instance, the Indian
I Mating; Crimean Wat; our own Civ
j;! (or rather uncivil} War; the Fian
eo^Gorman War; ?Instruction o! tue
Second French Empire; the Subma?
rine Telegraph; cheap and mighty
organization of Mail and Kxpressjthe
Telephone; Electricity in all its many
appliances, although still in its in?
fancy; astronomical researcb*ahd dis?
covery; cheap, well grounded an;',
highly ciTieieut education for the
people of various nations; and the
wonderful traveling facilities of the
present, day. What at) entertain?
ment the Honorable Gentleman
eould give us.
Possessing a musical voice, an at?
tractive manner; and great and vari?
ed knowledge, Mr. Gladstone lias
always shone in conversation. But
he is. admittedly, one of the most
difficult of men from whom to obtain
a clear and explicit rdply io an en?
quiry. It. is notorious that when his
long, ami complex periods have
been "rounded up," it has been usu?
ally seen that they have failed to
give (no information sought to be
obtained?thus illustrating, to some
extent, the truth of.lite saying of a
prominent French Statesman of the
regime ofNapoieon that "language
was given to conceal thought."
Although bis religions views have
been considerably liberalized by
time, yet Mr, Gladstone remains
faithful in Iiis attachment to the
Church of England?the Episcopal
Church. When at home at Haward
en, (of which Parish, one of his sons,
is Rector), ho invariable roads
the Lessons of "Divine Service. He
has no sympathy with the views of
Darwin, Huxley, Spencer, Harrison,
or Others of a like school.
r?.all the roia.ions of nrivaie1 life
lie lias ever been most exemplary; a
devoteil husband, an elTectibnate
father, a sincere feiend, lie pre?
sents to us, Iu his own experience, a
tine example of early rising, temper?
ance, systamatic out-door exercises,
and other regular habits of loo.
As we said iu a former issne, Mr.
Gladstone is a man of whom any
: nation might justly feel proud. Af?
I tor such an arduous life as he has led,
may his remaining days bo serene,
! and may they be ever increasingly
brightened by a sense ot his coun?
try's just appeciation of Iiis great
worth.

that some of the leading Democrats

In all the chronicles of history

Attempting the impossible:
I J Ceurhr-Journal.]
The attitude of the Senate toward
the Tariff Bill is what was to be ex?
pected. It is the inevitable conse?
quences of attempting the impossi?
ble.
To try to reform the tariff on
protective lines is bad enough. To
try to reform it, not only on protect?
ive lines, but also tlie log-rolling
methods that have marked protect?
ive legislation in the past, is to rush
to inevitable faiiure.
The necessity for tariff reform was
conceded for years before the Mc?
Kinley abomination was framed* The
packed Tariff Commission of 1882,
composed of protectionists exclusive?
ly, reported that a deep cut into tar?
iff rates was needed.. The next year
a Republican Congress, working by
tlie log-rolling method, responded
with a lull which refused to carry
out tlie recommendations of tlie com
I mission. There were reductions in
j tlie bill, it i> true, but they were net
such as relieved public burdens . < in
the other hand, some of the powerful
interests got an increase of protec?
tion.
It is very well remembered that in
ihc canvass cf 1888', the necessity of
tariff reform wa s conceded by Repub?
licans. Their platform, indeed, as
j interpreted by the extreme tariff men,
did not hold out much hope cd' such
n consummation, but everybody
knows the liberality with which plat?
forms are interpreted by stump
speakers. In 1888 the cry was
that the tariff needed revision, but
that it must bo revised by its friends.
Fraud lurked in the word ?'revision."
Tlie people were led to believe that
thero was to be a revision in the dir:
rection of lower duties. Ex-Govern-1
or Ames, of Massachusetts, and many
other Republicans have clearly point:
ed out how the party failed to keep
its campaign pledges in this particu?
lar.
When the work on the Tariff Iii 11
began, in the season (if 1889-00, the
Rep.uhUcari (.'ongrvssmcn wore by no
means all McKiolerJteS; Many of
them re]uesenletl-(l!>hdots that were
s'trennonS for lower tariff rales. They j
were not ighoraut that their reflec?
tion might depend upon the keeping
of the' pledges nmdo during the can?
vas that the tariff should be so re
vised as to relieve the burdens of the I
peoph) But the friends of higher
duties had the whip hand. They in?
vited the beniltmdiries of the high
tariff to confS aud recite tlu-i^ wcll
cniii.(-;[ sto'ty how they would be ir
retrievai.lv 'rained unless rates were
put up. The Republican members
agreed among themselves to advocate
the steal* of others on condition that
their particular steals were allowed
to go through. By the time the
measure-came to a vote nearly all the
wavering had been brought in, the
I ffl passed almost by a strict, party
vote, and many of those who voted
for it tot their seats at the next
election.
The Dcmocrtas have a majority in
'the Renale, and can pass a bill in the
interest of reform it' they will stand
I together. But when they goto work
to'try to pass a bill that will be ac?
ceptable t6 every selfish class inter?
est that mn'y he found in the State
which thev represent they imperil -the
passage of,a'ny bill, and they make it
certain that no bill which they can
pass in this way will be such a meas?
ure of reform as the people will be
wilifng td accept. No real reform is
accomplished by taking counsel of
the lobby, it is the habit of the
lobby to represent itself as the people,
b n t 8 e n a to;: bought to kno w better.
The majority of the people are not
represented in the ! by. it remains
to be seen ?ther;tliei* are represent?
ed in thVBenaire. If there are any
Senators who believe the lobby repre?
sents the people let them ask the1
SenotOfs and Reprcsehtatives that
Jost their seats in consequence of
their rotes for the W - ialey abmni
n atiori.
IT Congress will execute the man?
date it has received from the people
its task is comparatively easy. Ii it
insists on executing the mandate of a
lobby of pr?te?tioniSls it cannot re?
form the tariff, but the people will
address themselves to the task of re?
forming Congress.
Two Opinions as to Iho Gold Stand?
ard.
The Providence (it. I.) Journal
says it is fignred that at the present
mice of silver the people of the Unit?
ed States have lost over ?$172.000,000
on the silver purchased by our gov?
ernment since the passage of the sal
ver remonetization act of 1878. That
is to ray, that from 1878 until now
silver has been declining in value as
compared with gold, and therefore
the government has sine? that data
lostthesnm above stated. On the
other hand, there tire persons who
figure that the government has made
j "a good speculation" by purchasing
'diver at its bullion value and coining
it into dollars at its coinage value.
The '.'seigniorage,V of which we hear
! and roe 1 so much recently is nothing
iTnore nor jess titan the difierence be
j tweeh t lie- value of coiucd silver and
i silver bullion. We suppose the ac
icount as between the pain by seigni?
orage and the loss by the decline in
the gold value of silver bullion would
not ^row much profit on either si? I:?
J if it were carefully and correctly
j made up*.
Mr. Bland, Chairman of the Com?
mittee on Coinage, Weights, and
Measures, who has identified his
name with the silver legislation o!
Congress, seems to hold?aud to
[have a 'goodly'.number of his Dem?
ocratic associates in the House of
Representatives who agree with him
in holding?that {..> coin, the seigni?
orage into dollars will have the effect
of rendering money more abundant.
But a majority of the bankers and
other capitalists hold that the free
i coinage of silver would result in causr
ling the prices of ail articles to be
fixed by the silver standard. The
Whicpgq Tnbune says that Mr7.
Bland is a dolt, if he does no know
'that to adopt the silver standard
would be to reduce the purchasing
power of silver by hundreds of mil
|lions of dollars, and at the same time
to expel gold altogether from the cir?
culation of the country. It does look
as if it would be dangerons to make
such an experiment; for if the mon?
eyed men really believe that such a
result would follow free coinage thev
j would proceed at once to adopt meas*
tires for saving their money, and
j would themselves create the very
conditions which they expect free
[coinage to produce. So we of this
country are in a strait.
Dot there is another side to this
latter picture. The followers of Mr.
Bland are not afraid, of monometal?
lism. One of tlic ablest advocates of
j I ree coi n a ge p f sil ver is 111 c Man to
} Conslitidi?n,\y}\ich so far from being
afrajid ot silver monometallism, is
not averse to greenbackisni, bnt ar?
gues that the people of this country
j were perhaps never at any other per?
iod so. presperotVs as they were from
about 1861 to 1876, and never dur?
ing any other period laid up so!
much money nor accumulated so
much properly. During that period,'
says the Constitution, the average1
_ American never saw either a gold or I
ja silver dollar. Specie payments!
were suspended., but what of it? j.a
bor was in general demand. Wo
built towns and railroads, and start?
ed most of our industrial enictprhes.
f'The masses never lived more com?
fortably, and they never purchased
more important luxuries than d?nn?
that period." "Every middle"]
aged man will readily remember
that the most prosporoue period inj
his life was the era of suspension of
gold payments." "Daring thej
fifteen years that we got along with?
out specie this country was a regular
Bee-hive of industry,'" And. 'more
of the same sort.
It would seem, therefore, that even
a total suspension of specie payments !
would not necessarily ruin us. Bat \
it must be,added that bnllmn silver
was worth more than bulixon gold up
tO 187*2; Our present, deplorable!
condition could not easily bo made']
worse, both luoaOmetaiHsts and hi-j
.tnotallists agree. Del us hope that j
the final result will be the solution,!
anco for all, of the silver projilwn.?

WASHINGTON LETTER.
W^ai.NXTov, Men ?j 1^)1.
Editor ]}<>M :
Senator Vo?rhees ought to bo good
authority b? what tlie SenateFinauce
c??S mitte? will tto with the Biand
bill tor the coinage of the seigniorage,
which was > ;-sed by the House last
week. Ho hays that the committee
will not. report tlie bill to the Senate
until after the tariff, bill Khali have
been disposed of. In that case one
of the principal objects of the origi
natok of the bill will be defeated.
That i*? to furniHh the Treasury with
money that will soon be needed, thus
I avoiding an exenae for another bond
I issue. If the bill i-s not to be even
reported to the Senate until after the
! tariff bill is disposed of there ia no
I telling when it will get before the
j Senate, and no Senator scorns willing
to say when it willgoe.
There are lots of rumor- about the
intention of the silver Senators to
attach a free coinage amendment to
! the seigniorage bill; hut the closest
I inquiry among those getlemcii has
failed to discover any substantial
foundation for any of them. By tlie
way, sonic of the anti silver men in
the House aie saving some very silly
'things about this bill. For instance,
that on a full vote of the Rouse would
have been defeated, and that it only
[passed by a majority of 39, because
[they did not have time to get the
[opposing votes here. They had
nearly three weeks, which should
j have been time enough for any Con?
gressman to have gott?n here. The
' bill oasscd before it was favored by a
majority; that's all, and it would
have passed had every member of tlie
House voted,
j Women are accuse.1 of being more
changeable than men, but if there is
a woman in existence who can
change faster or oftencr than the
Senators who are trying to fix up the
tariff bill so thai it can command
votes enough to pass tlie Senate, she
[should be exhibited as the greatest
living curiosity. Six different times
[the bill has been printed and each
time it was supposed to have been
complete, but it is uot yet complete,
Miles-, it has been completed within
I the last three hours. The trouble
[seems to be that when an item is
changed to meet the demand of one
'Senator it just like as not oftends ati
; other Senator au i jeopardizes his
vote. So it goes. Of course, some
j sort; of a tar ill' bill is going to be
passed., but he is a daring or a fool?
ish man who assumes at this time to
I tell its exact nature.
Che testimony of Hon. Jos iah
bduiuey, ex-Assistant Secretary of
State, before the Senate committee
[on.Printing, which is investigating
thegiring out <?[' the contract for
printing the Patent Ofnce Gazette,
was of a semidiurnal nature, although
.Mr. Quincy did not Seem to think*",
and there was much surprise at that
portion cf it where he told of having
endorsed a note of the National Kco
uomical Economist Publishing Qcb,
tor $5.00. That revived rumors rife
'Taring the last Presidential cam?
paign, of the "National Economist"
being controlled by the Democratic
National Committee, and added ad?
ditional interest to the testimony.
Air. Qutncy admitted that the pres?
ent contractors owed him considera?
ble money and that he had procured
the contract for them and aided, them
in keeping it when fault was found
with the work, led denied that there
was anytuing underhanded or im?
proper in what'be did. Senator Gor?
man seems disposed to act with Sen?
ator ?laudcrspn, the Republican
member of the committee, in getting
at tlie bottom of the whole business,
lit may be all right, but things have
quite an ugly look for Mid Quincv
arid some other people ?j this time".
The investigation will be continued
this week.
Representative Bailey, of Texas,
has an infernal machino in the shape
of a bill?at least it will be so regard?
ed by a considerable number of Seit
I a tors and Representatives should Mr.
j Bailey really push it, as he now says
he wili do. The bill provides for an
absolute divorce of the executive and
legislative branches of the govern?
ment, so far as patronage is con?
cerned, arid makes it impossible for
anymember ofeither branch of con?
gress to have any veice in the distri?
bution of patronage, ft alsoprovides
that when the President needs any
information or suggestions not con?
tained ii; the papers of applications
he must get it from some one not a
member of congross. Mr. Bailey is un?
questionable right in believing that
such a law would make Congress
more independent than it has ever
been. It would also bring many
new men to Congress, as there are
lew of the old ones who Could get
back without the aid. of their natron
age machine. A bill transferring
the appointing power from the Presi?
dent to Congress would be much
more likely to pass.
