The fact tliat Mr. Cleveland lias been elected President with the elec toral vote of New York to spare is a gratifying proof of the breadth and strength of public opinion. While the American citizen will ever feel a pride in the prosperity of the great Empire State of the Union, he will also feel that the Union is broader and safer, because its political policy is no longer to be .shaped by the inlluence of New York. For many years the electoral vote of tie State of New Yo k has been the pivotal vote in thi el ction of a President, and political parties have more or less catered for such an inlluence in favor of their respective candidates. Hut at the recent Presi dential election the people decided that hereafter the power of electing a President should not be said to reside with any one State, and that the candidate for that high o!!ice should understand in the future that success could only be won by statesmanship which was recognized from ocean to ocean and from the gulf to the lakes. This is one of the most encouraging lectures of Mr. Cleveland's election. HIS I'OLH'Y. Those who have any doubt as to what will be the policy of Mr. Cleve land's administration can remove it by a careful study of lite democratic plat form adopted at Chicago. Mr. Cleve land is one of the public men of this country who regarJs the platform of his party as its political chart, and as the pl.uform upon which be accepted the nomination and was elected was submitted to him and approved before he wn-i nominated, there can be no diiib. i I" his carrying into practical legislation, so far as his department can, every material provision. The recent speeches of Mr. Cleveland are on a straight line with his party plat form, thus indicating that he draws in spiration from it for all his public ut terances. There are more brilliant men in this country than Mr. Cleve land, men of stronger minds, but it is doubtful if there is one in the whole country whose character is more beau tifully rounded than the character and mental make-up of the President elect. MTlliHV IN TI'KKKY. A recent order of the Turkish war minister limits army officers under the rank of major to a single wife. The object of the order is said to be to encourage economy, and, wives being an expensive luxury, that the salaries of the officers of lower grades were not adequate to warrant the indulgence. A contemporary says "this -" I "u uuuuucss tomes irom mat v vi""" which the i GrEey gentlemen have alwavs been distinguished. The only real luxury in two wives is that they will fight each other continually, and so the husband will escape. The war min ister is already heartily bated by the wives of the officers, and this order will heat that dislike to the tempera ture of Nebuchadnezzer's furnace on the plain of Dura. Sultan Abdul llamid is himself said to oppose the in discriminate and unlimited multiplic ity of matrimony, and has refused to marry any more women than the law, enacted for the purpose of keeping the throne from being too popular, pre scribes. The minimum number by whom the Sultan is blessed is four fully commissioned and three hundred brevet wives. For some reason or other, possibly the annual bill for three hundred and four Easter bonnets, the Sultan is said to be dead set against polygamy and will approve theorder of the war office with great alacrity." I'KNMO.N FUJI KEN. The legislation of the republican party in regard to pensions has simply embarrassed the government finan dally. In order to perpetuate its power this party would soon have on the pension list about half as many names as were on the muster roll of the Union army during the entire war, and double the number on the muster roll of the Confederate army. On the first of January next, the number of p-mioriers 0n the pension list will al most equal the regular standing armies of France and Germany combined, which contain 1,040,000 men. To support such a list the coming session of Con ires will be expected to appro priate 18C,000,000. This is $73, 0O0,U''O in excess of the annual cost of the standing army of Germany, and more by 5G,000,OUO than the annual cost of the standing jtrmy of France. It is $120,000,000 more than the en tire cost of the government the year before the war. Hut this republican pension legislation is such that no one can tell how large the list will grow. New names are added every month, and consequently new responsibilities incurred. On the first of January next, there will be on the pension list over 1,000,000 names, and thereafter the expenses will increase at the rate of $350,000 per month. Unless such fraudulent legislation is repealed, it follow from the facts presented that it will tax the people in 181)4 at least $2M) 000 -000 to pay the pensioners alone.' At tention is directed to this subject in order that the people may f-e the di rect.on in which their government was drifting under the guide of republican policy, and that they acted wisely in 'Iriving the republican party from power, as far as they could, at the re cent election. The country is now confronted with a large deficit, the lowest reliable estimate being $30, 000,000, showing that this great aud wealthy government has been plunged into bankruptcy by Harrison's adminis tration within three years and a half from the date of its inauguration. The whole business is very shameful. SFCHETAKV RUSK'S REPORT. Secretary Rusk has made his fourth and last annual report as bead of the Department of Agriculture an inter esting document. No one can read it without feeling that this is a great ag ricultural country, and that the depart ment over which Uncle Jerry presides is well worthy to have at its head a cabinet officer. The Secretary says that we sent abroad last year two hun dred million dollars of products more than we had to import Irom foreign nations, and 80 per cent, of these pro ducts were agricultural. The Balti more Sun comments thus on the report: "He claims some credit for that, be cause he shows an increase of 40,000, 000 pounds weight of pork sent to countries which formerly excluded American pork and $40,000,000 value increase in our exports of live cattle. All this comes from the increased pre cautions to secure healihfulness of American food products. The regu lations enforced for the prevention of Texas fever alone have saved cattle growers more than three times the cost of running the whole department, and as to the suppression of pleuropneu monia, the Secretary grows emphatic. "Notwithstanding the assertions to the contrary of wicked and prejudiced London newspapers, he again declares that pleuro-pneumonia does not exist in the United States. This result, he ciaimsjhas been obtained at a cost less by $100,000 than was paid out by Great Britain during seven years as indemnity for slaughtered cattle alone. He also points out that the total loss to the cattle growers of Great Britain by this disease in deaths alone has amounted to not less than a half a billion dollars, and that this is the only country in the world where the disease, having once gained a foothold, has been entirely eradicated." "He explains why our wheat did not realize the big hopes raised by the short crops in various European coun tries in 1891 saying that those antici pations of enhanced prices failed to take into account the changed condi tions now surrounding the production and marketing of the world's wheat crop. 'Taking the world throughout the fat crops more than equaled the lean crops of 1891, so that there was actually more wheat grown in that year than in 1890.' Even the exports from Russia, where famine existed in so large a section, and where exports were for a time prohibited, amounted to 105,000,000,000 bushels, nearly as much as the average of the past four years, and more than the average for the past ten years. He says: The conditions which have at last over whelmed cotton growers now confront wheat growers.' Hence the American farmer must reduce the wheat acreage and so bring production down to the normal demand." "While insisting that Southern cot ton growers must continue to reduce the acreage of cotton planted, he has some encouragement to offer them in the shape of new varieties of cotton s ed. He has undertaken experiments with imported seed .-frr- the " , 1 c , ytO Seti.-; lVF pro duction - r 1 ' 'uc?- ---' uoHre-grown cotton which -will meet all the requirements for which Egyptian and oth.r cottons are now imported. He also wants the United States to raise its own raw silk instead of sending twenty-five mil lion dollars a year abroad for the raw material, and he thinks we might also save sixty seven millions a year which we now spend on imported fibres. He has some hopes of getting the Germans to use our Indian corn. Many difficulties have attended the in troduction of a new food heretofore generally regarded in Europe as not suitable for human consumption. A mixed corn and rye bread was found necessary to secure keep ing quantities in a country where all bread is made and sold by the bakeries, and corn-grinding machinery purchassed in America is now in use in several mills in that country. One result is the maintenance of the price of corn in the face of largely increased exports, conditions which have hereto fore always accompanied a great de preciation in price. The corn exports ior ivjv, ttie only year in which they have equalled those of the Dresent year, brought the price down a fraction under cents a bushel at the Dort of shipment against a fraction over 55 cents per bushel this year, a difference aggregating on the exports of the past fiscal year not less than $10,000,000. lue report is the first from the cab net to find its way to the President.'.. desk. Secretary Rusk throws cold water on the rainmakers. The exnerimenta are loyally being made, as Congress directed, but the facts in hia nossessinn do not justify the anticipations formed by the believers in this method of arti ficial rainmakintr. As his last word, the secretary ex presses his profound aDDreeiatinn of the cordial sympathy and broad intel ligence with which the President has uniformly, throughout his administra tion, needed the needs of agriculture, and predicts that the people of this' country will learn to appreciate more and more the fact that the first admin istration during which the department of agriculture held the rank of an exe cutive department of the government was presided over by a chief executive who never failed to appreciate the im portance of agriculture, its dignity and its value to the country at large." THE MONETIrVcOSCRESS. If the London Economist is author ity as to what will the. the English Cabinet at the forthcom ing International Monetary Conference to be held at Brussels, it appears that there are very grave doubts of any practical results being soon reached on the subject. The Economist says: "They, (the English representa tives) ought at the very outset to let it be distinctly understood that we are not there to buy the adherence of any power to this or that line of action. We are satisfied with our present mon etary system, and have no intention of altering it, and if other nations wish to make a change they must do it of their own option, and not in return for concessions' on our part. And there is the more reason why we should act in this way, because by agreeing to appoint a commission to inquire into the workings of the Indian currency system and advise as to whether it is expedient to modify it in any way the government have practically tied their hands. It is very right that such a commission should be ap pointed. If it does nothing else it will at all events expose the empirical character of the remedies which currency doctors are so freely prescribing for the evils ascribed to the fall in silver. But while the commis sion is prosecuting its inquiry it would obviously be absurd to enter into en gagements with other powers which might prevent us from acting upon its recommendation. It is nothing to the point to say that India will be quite satisfied if an international bimetallic agreement be entered into, and that consequently there will be no need for the commission to prosecute its labors. It may be taken for granted that if the government had any hope of such a solution of the difficulty they would not have thought it necessary to ap point the commission. Knowing,there fore, as they do, that the expectations of 'concessions' on our part, upon which those who expect anything from the International Monetary conference are building, cannot be realized, their aim should be to maintain that free dom of action which is necessary to enable them to profit by the labors of the commission they have decided to appoint."
