Diplomacy and Naturalization.
Philadelphia Record. Diplomacy is not an art wbich is taught in America, nor ofien acquired by Amer icans. We are too off hand,. so to speak, to prccieely measure our language or to avoid words that might irritate. The English with more experience, are not i much better case than ourselves. The Russians, on the other hand are born ne gotiators. They understand the differV ence between the notes of the flute and the blasts of the trumpet. Persistent as to the end, they are flexible and accom modating as to the means. The dis patches of their Foreign Office are models in the way of argument, courtesy and the absence of offense. They should be studied by Mr. Olney and Lord Salisbury. It is the way a thing is put ihit soothes or irritates, that smooths the wrinkled visage and gives assurance of peace or arouses resentment and sets the squad rons in the field. The position of the Jews in Russia is anomalous' and has lea to a great many communications between our btate JLe partmeot and the Russian Foreign Office. It is a delicate subject. A naturalized Jew becomes an American citizen. Oar Government cannot concern itself about his race or religion; it must treat him Doliticallv as an American, and when abroad as entitled to the protection ef the American Government. Now we have a treaty with Russia which provides that the inhabitants ot the two countries snail mutually be at liberty to enter the ports, places and rivers of sach party wherever foreign commerce is permitted, and to sojourn and reside in all parts whatso ever 01 said territories iu oruor iu uuuuu to their affairs and enjoy to that effect the same security and protection as the natives of the country wherein they may reside. With this treaty in force our government must see that it applies to all classes of our citizens It can make no discrimination between them what ever their race or creed. Russia, on the other hand, treats the Jews as a distinct class, and seems to take no account of their foreign citizenship. They are Jews simply: citizenship is another matter And when formerly the two govern ments were nearly agreed on a treaty of naturalization, a statute ot the .Umpire was jecalled concerning the conferment and loss of citizenship; and this obstacle put an end to the negotiation. Accord ingly there is no treaty between the Uni ted States and Russia lor the protection of naturalized citizens. Nevertheless, the United States Government claims thai a naturalized citizen visiting Russia is entitled to the same protection as that extended to a native-born citizen. Russia, on the contrary, claims that under the treaty between the two countries an Americau Hebrew is subject to the same local treatment extended to a Russian Ilebrew. Moreover, the right of expa triation is denied by Russia, and her pe nal code provides thai any Russian sub ject leaving that country and taking the oath of allegianco to a foreign power is thereby liable to the loss of all social rights and to perpetual banishment from the territory of the empire, or, iu the case of his unauthorized return, to doporta tion to and settlement in Siberia. With the United States affirming the right of expatriation and liussia denyiug it, it is surprising that there has not been much more friction and conflict than has act ually arisen. For Russia has as much right to maintain her doctrine as have the United States to assert their own. Rut we were speaking of diplomacy and diplomatic language, and we have referred to tho question of naturalization in order to cite a dispatch of Mr. Blaine to our Minister at St. Petersburg, and which he was directed to read to the Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs.. As we have said, the Russian negotiators, in discussing the question of a treaty be tween Russia and the United States for the protection of naturalized citizens, broke off tho negotiation because of the obstacle arising from an. unrepealed stat ute of Russia. This obstacle Mr. Blaine treated in the off hand, American manner, as follows : "I can readily conceive that statutes bristling with difficulties remain unre pealed in the volumes ot tho law of Russ sia as well as of other nations. Even we ourselves have our obsolete "Blue Laws;" and their liberal enforcement, if such a thing were possible, might today subject a Russian of free thinking proclivities, in Maryland or Delaware, to the penalty of having his tongue bored through wilh a rod hot iron for blasphemy. Happily, tho Bp'rit of progress is of higher author ity than the lettor of outworn laws, and statutory enactments are not so inelastic but that they relax and change with the general advancement of pooples in the path of tolerance." This was smart, but it was not calcu lated to reopen or to advance the negoti ation';: and the "outworn laws" remain still iBjlhe .Russian statutos, in spite of "the spirit of progress." Nevertheless, we hope that the consummation so de voutly to be wished may be accomplished, and that Russian legislation may be re formed. But it will not be done by smart dispatches. The poets s?ng of a fountain whose waters bring back lost youth, But no one has ever found it. Still there's a germ of truth In the dreamers' fable of fancy, for there exists to-day A draught that banishes sorrow and drives despair away. From women whose lives have become a burden, on account of diseases to which women alone are subject. The well known "Favorite Prescription" prepared by Dr. Pierce may not be able to bring back youth when it has flown, but it will restore lost health, and that will bring happinessi and so the draught is as magi cal in its effect as the fountain of youth WBB lUICU .10 DO. Htb Catharine tE. Nicely, of Andy, Wetzel Co., W.Va., writes: "After taking your Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription, I find I am entirely cured of 'female corns plaint.'

The largest piece of Jood tobacco ever sold for 10 cents The 5 cent piece is nearly as large as you vget of other h.gh grades for 10 cents The Best Paid Labor is tho Cheapest Philadelphia Record. For years the Record has contended that the high wages paid to working- men in toe United states was in fact an evidence of cheap production, and there fore not a sound reason for building a tariff wall against the goods produced in countries where cheaper wages were paid. It is a rule to which there are few exceptions that the best paid labor is the cheapest, this goes on the same prin ciple that governs the use of machinery. The most perfect machinery is the cheap est. riut toe Record is no longer alone in its contention. A new champion has entered toe lists. Mr. Theodore C. Search, the president of the National Manufacturers' Association, in his speech before the Foundrymen's Convention at the Manufacturers' Club on Tuesday last, discussed the question ot wage rates and production with great lucidity and clear, ness. The Record takes the einccrest pleasure in approving, adopting and spreading abroad Mr. Search's argument, as follows: "Perhaps the most important tb oug b I can present to you is my abiding faith in our own country, and tho relative value ol us w orking energy. Mulhail, in his recently published tables, gives some statistics of the productive energy of vas nous countries, and he shows that the aggregate of all the energies in use in the United States in 1820 was equal to 446 foot tons per cani.a. In 1890 this had increased to 1 940 foot tons, and the position of the other countries was as follow-: England. 1.470 foot tonB: Ger many, 902; France, 910; Spain, 59(); Aus tria, 560, a.id Italy 380. These figures have a deeper signifi cance than a superficial glance would Bhow, as they indicate that our own coun try is a productive factor that cannot be longer confined to its own limits for trade; that tho higher wage of our labor is being rapidly discounted by the effect iveness of our methods, and that the markets of the world are not so far from our grasp as the workingman may imag ine. We are rapidly demonstrating that it is possible to overcome the higher wage earnings of our labor by a greater prod uct, and that it payB to maintain the splendid efficiency of our workmen for the sake of its greater value. That it has been possible to maintain the wages of our labor in the face of continually de clining prices of nearly all products has oeeo aue to the constantly increasing productive capacity of our workmen and our machinery. In the maoufac.ure of iron and steel there has been a wonderful increase in the productive capacity of labor through the introduction of better methods and more efficient machinery. The produc tion of pig iron in the census year 1870 averaged about 53 gross tons for each man employed in the industry; in 1880 it was about 81 tons, and in 1890 it was about 321 tons. In 1884 the average daily output of coal for each man employed in the bitu minous mines ot Pennsylvania was 2.18 tons, while in 1894 it was 3 22 tons, and during the same ten years the output of anthracite increased from 1.70 tons per man per day to 2 07 tons." We have nothing to fear from foreign competition in any department of indue try suited to our country, unless we shall auow our competitors to get the better of us trough superior technical knowledge or more effective machinery.

I became weak, nervous, was unable to look after my interests, and manifested all the symptoms of a de cline. I took three bottles of Ayer's Sarsaparilla, began to improve at once, and gradually increased my weight from one hundred and twenty -five to two hundred pounds. Since then, I and my family have used this medicine when needed, and we are all in the best of health, a fact which we attribute to Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I believe my chil dren would have been fatherless to-day had it not been for Ayer's Sarsaparilla, of which preparation I cannot say too much." H. O. Hrxsox, Postmaster and Planter, Kinard's, S. C.
