In no year for a quartor of a contnrv havo tho customs recoipts run as low, or tho gencral recoipts of tho trovnrntnnnf. fallon below its oxpendituros. This is largely duo to tho falling off in tho im portations. Part of it is caused hvtlm inabllity of peoplo to buy, but much of it is duo to tho faot that importors havo bought in just as littlo as possiblo and dealers havo bought as littlo as possiblo in tho expoctation that the roducod ratos of duty would bo mado a law long beforo this timo, and thnt largo importations of dutlablo articles would bo unwiso in viow of this prospcctivo ohango in ratos Tho valuo of tho importations for tho year just endcd amounts, in round num bors, to $050,000,000. This is loss than in any year slncoieSO. It is raoro than $200,000,000 less than tho yaluo of tho importations in 1803. Six of tho largest buildings, forming tho boundarlcs of tho court of honor of tho World's fair, woro burncd by incen diaries Wodnesday ovcning. Tho build ings destroyod wero tho torminal station, manufacturos, olectricity and mining buildings, maohinory hall and tho agri cultural building. Tho art gallory, which lias sinco boen rcchristoncd tho Columbian museum.and tho government buildings woro saved, togothor with tho agricultural building. Thocouyiction of'Bat" Shea in Troy, N. Y., for thg murdor of Robert Ross, is an ovent tiat it is far-reaching in im portanco. As stated by our Troy ox changos, it rodeoms tho good namo of that city, in that tho purity of tho ballot and security of human lifo and freedom' at tho polls will bo maintained. But tho justico, though tardy, will fall short of doinc its porfect work if tho mon back of Shea aro allowod to continuo and proflt by tho work of such as ho. "Boss" Murphy still has tho machino and dictat cd tho olection of tho prosent city cov ernmout. Wo noto tho fact- that tho trials of thp othors aro to continuc. "Bat" Shea is to bo sentenccd ncxtTucs day, but) meantimo, his counscl will make evory offort to savo hiin, carrying tho caso to tho Court of Appeals. Wo think their offorts will fail and that jus tico will bo dono, and that Robert Ross will not havo died in vein. Tho statemont of Mr. Pullmnn of tho Pullman corapany cloarly shows that tho troublo botweon tho company and its omployes, with tho resulting railway strikcs and all tho enormous losses, law brcaking and suffcring that havo fol- lowed, is attributablo to tho doprcssion caused by tho Bourbon assault in Con gross on tho industrios of the North. If sucu is tho beginnmg, what will bo tho results should tho monstrous moasuro hccomo a law? In tho mattcr of labor union gnovances Ohief Arthur of tho brothorhood of locomotivo onginoors ox- plains: "Tho American Railwav Union has in its orgauizatiou mon making $0 a day and othors earning only $1 a day. Tho $1 a day man thinks ho ought to bo bottorpaid. A grievaaco is sprung, and n is sustainett oy uio union. rnon m siistainini: tho abtion of tlio union ovorv mombor is drawnvinto a striko. It worb a hardship and acts against thoso who roany navo no gnovanco at all." This fact stands out in bold reliof in connoc tion with tho prosent striko. Tho om ployes of tho various lines of railway aro not at all directly interested in tho Pullman affair, and Jhoy all como under uio siaiemenc maao Dy uniot fl.rtnur. IIow long will it be bofore tho railroad omployos will see this for thomselvcs? Tho striking situation continuos to bo a sourco of anxioty. Roports aro con- ilicting. Th& govornmont is confldent tbat ordor will soon be restored.Jand tho strikers aro as equally suro that victory is all but sccured for them. An opisodo of tho situation is tho protest of Gov, Atgold of Ullnois against tho omploy- ment by tho United States of regular stato," and tho firm roply of Prosidont Cleveland. Tho protest was received last night whilo tho Prcsident and Cabi not wero in scssion, discussing tho situa tion. Gor. Atgold tells tho U. S. gov ernment that tho stato of Illinois is abundantly ablo to tako caro of itself, and stands ready to assist tho United States olsowhoro. Ho not only protosts against tho presenco f federal troops but asks their immcdiato withdrawal. IIo does not, howover, say why ho his not crasped tho opportunity to quoll an archy, probably, becauso ho is moro or less in sympathy with it. But tho reply of tho Prcsident is not uncortain. IIc says tho government troops wero sout to Illinois in strict accordancb with tho constitution, upon tho domand of tho postofflco dopartment to romovo obstruc tions to tho movomont of mails, otc. Ho adds: "To meot thoso conditions, which aro cloarly within tho provinco of federal authority, tho presenco of fedoral troops in tho city of Chicago was deom ed not only propor, but necessary, and there has boen no intontion of theroby interferinfc-with the plain duty of tho lo cal authorities to preservo tho poaco of the city." Tho wliolo striko situation is anarchistic, a civil war in offoct, and prompt moasures in arrcst and punish ment of tho leaders may avert much bloodshcdding and troublo to tho publio generally. THE DEMOCRATIC DIFFICULTY. Tho problora which confrontcd tho rc cont Dombcratio stato convontion at Burlington and which has ptizzled tho rcsolution framers of ovory Domooratio convontion this year is, how to ondorso tho administration of Prcsidont Clovo land and yet not approve what tho ad ministration has done. In the dlschargo of tho duties of social lifo and in tho amenlties of daily intorcourso it is ffo quontly necessary to glyo "an ovasive answor," and mon and womon aro justl fiod by the customs of society in dis guising thoir real feelings. But in deal ing with questions of party promises and party porf ormanccs it is not quito so oasy to say ono thing whcn y&u roally mean tho contrary. Approciating this difflcul ty, tho New York Sun prosents a form of rcsolution which sots forth what tho Democraoy promised to do and ondorsos it, making no reforenco whateyer to the fulflllmont or non-fulflllment of thoso promises. It is too lato for tho rcsolution com mittees of many of tho Domocratic con vontlons to proflt by tho suggestion of tho Sun, but it may bo utilizod in futuro convocations of the party. Henco, there has bcon grcat divorgonco of actlon among tho conventions. Tho Arkansas convontion refused tho adontion of any rcsolution that could possibly bo con strued as anondorsemont of Mr. Clovo land or his administration; in Illinois, thoy approved hlm and it in whatovor ho or it had dono in consonanco with tho principlos laid down in Chicago; Ponnsyl vania Domocraoy in convontion assom bled, declarcd tho administration of Presidont Clovoland had fulflillcd the pledgcs of his partyaud satlsfled tho ox poctitions of tho peoplo; and othor Dom ooratio gatherings havo adoptod platform plauks on this subjoct ranging all tho way from tacit approval to impliod con domnation. Tho Ponnsylvania method has tho ment of courago, to say the loast. And, Store AJoandonecL And all Kpods to ba dlsposed of In Troy.

It mayi havo beon intonded in a Pickwickian senso, to bo sure, and rightly intorprotcd mcans tho peoplo aro satisilcd becauso tho administration has not dono worse. Of courso, tho ablo committee on reso lutions at tho Burlington convontion, un der tho lcadcrship of Mr. Martin, of Ben nington, was not acquaintedj with tho Bugcestion of tho Sun, but it could havo hardly improved upon its action if tho Sun itsolf had writton that particular plank in tho dcclaration of principles as undcrstooa by Vermont Domocraoy. As a wliolo, tho Burlington platform may bo callcd condo'mnatory rather than com mendatory. It is, to uso a familiar say ing, "chock' full" of donunciation. Of courso, tho anathomas aro all hurlcd at tho Republican party as is right and propor from a Domooratio staudpoint. But it is just a littlo singular that iu ncar ly a year and a half of Domocratic con trol tho dclcgatcd roprcsontativcs of Ver mont Domocracy could flnd so littlo to applaud. Thcro was nj "pointing with prido" to tho achieyemeuts of oither Presidcnt or Congrcss,' nooulogies upon tho foreign or domestio' polioies of tho administra tion, not ovon an impliod apnroval of tho Ilawaiian blundor, no ringing sentonces of commdation for tho incomo tax, nor oxpressions of gratitudo for tho salo of party pledges to tho sugartrust, noteven a refereqce to tho sha.j.elcss abandon mont of civil servico reform. Nothing of tho kind. Instead, sand wiched in about half way down tho list of donunciations may bo found this foeble squeak of perfunctory, albeit moamng less, approval: "Wo approvo of tho moasures proposed by tho reprcscntativcs of tho Domocratic party in Congrcss for tho reliof of tho couutry from unjust and discriminat ing tariff taxations." That's all. Nobody on tho committee or in tlio convention had tbo faintest idea what moasures wero or aro to be proposed by tho roprescntatives of tho jjomocratio party in uongress lor tuo re liof of anybody or anythiug. In tho tlirco months tho Wilson bill has beon footballcd through tho Senato, moro than six hundrcd amendatory plastcrs havo bcon app'ied to its fooble and omaciated framo and nor presidont nor Cabinet nor any membor of Congrcss has to-day tho least idea what tho thing will look liko whon, if over, it flnally seos tho light of day. - It would novor do. howover. to bo wholly silont regarding a mcasuro which it was promised would send this nation fairly scooting along tho highway of prosperity, itmust not bo condemned, and tho consciences of Vermont Demo crats could not and would not permit approval of tho monstrosity as it is. Thoy would not, as did their Fennsyl vania brothron. stultifv themsolves ov doclaring it a fulflllmont of party prom ises ana count not bear to bo so cruoi as thoir Arkansas collcasucs and dcnounco it. So thoy took tho chanccs, as it wero, and hoped it might turn out botter than it promised. Perhaps this was tho wisor and bettor way. At all evonts, ic must bo oxcocd ingly gratifying to Presidont Cleveland, to Congress. and tho Domocrauo narty ovoiywhoro to know tho "proposed moas ures'' meot tho approval of tho loyal and dovoted Domocrats of tho Grcon Moun tain stato. St. Albans Mossongcr, THE STRATTON CONVENTION." Jlfr. Edltor: Tho "Stratton Conven tion," which has boon brought before tho publio by Mr. Davonport, in his ar ticlo upon tho lato Gov. Ililand Ilall, and the moro rocont statemont br Dr. S. E. Rannoy, both publisbod in the juanner, wui poruaps warranc a lurthor notico of tho ovent. It was held Julv 7th and 8th. 1840, on tho top of tho Greon Mountaln in tho town of Stratton, Windham county, Vormont, in tho woods, far from indications of civiliza tion, oxcept tho road running through tho town from Sunderland to Wardsboro. It was to f urthor tho elcction of Gen. Wm. II. Harrison. crrandfather of our lato distinguished presidont, Bonjamin Harrison, .to tho prosidency of tho Union Statos.

Tho young peoplo will rcadily soo tho signiflcanco of tlio older generation spcaking of that olection as occurring in "log cabin times." . Tho Ilon. Waitstill R. Rannoy of Townsond, was prcsident of tho conven tion, and Mr. Hall mado tho following addrcss introductory to tho specch of tho non. Daniol Weostcr: Fellow Citizens: Wo aro met on tho top of our nativo mountain, overlook ing and taking iu, as it wero, at a singlo glance, all our variously divorsified in tercsts. Our hoadquartors is a building which abovo all othors is suitablo to tho business in which wo aro engaged. It was tho log cabin that furnishcd a shel ter to our fathors whon thoy mado tho first lodgomenc in tho Green Mountain wildorucss. It was within tho log cabin that wero planned and executed those bold and dccisivo moasures which pro tccted the oarly possossions of our fathers from tho grasp of tho land job bing government of a powerful neigh boring Provinco. It was from log cab ins that issucd that fearlcss band of vol untccrt who on tho morning of tho 10th of May, '75, within tho walls of Ticon deroga, thundcrcd at tho door of tho fortress, and domanded its surrender in tho namo of tho Great Jehorah and thb Continental Congress. It was log cabins that sent forth tlio mon, who in their hunting frocks and their bluo barrel guns without bayonots, stormed tho works of tho British and German rogu lars at Bennington and hurlcd back on the foo tho tido of success which until that day throatonod to overwhclm our country. Fellow Citizens, Connectcd with the log cabin aro tho names and deeds of our Chittenden, our Allens, our Warner and of all thoso, who, as tho fathers of our Stato, wo love dearost and prizo highest, and a son of tho Green Moun tain who would discard tho log cabin an an unflt emblem of his patriotism and love of libortv. would voluntariallv dis honor tho raomory of his father, and shako hands with tho slanderer of tho mother that boro him. To tho distinguishod Senator who honors us with his presenco on this oo casion, I claim in bohalf of oursclvos a Revolutionary log cabin relatiouship. I am not mistaken in my historical rec ollections. Tho fathor of Daniel Wob ster, then tho tcnant of a log cabin among tho hills of a ncighboricg Stato, stood sido by sido with our fathers at thb Battlo of Bennington, with them scalcd tho walls of tho Hession rcdoubts and received tho submission of its dying commander. Fellow Citizens, I congratulato youl congratulato you on tho relationship. Thanks to tho aristocratic offioo hold ors who taunted us with prescnting alog cabin candidate for tho presidoncy. It has waked up tho truo Wbig revolution ary spltit, aspirit that will carry in tri umph to tho prosidentlal chair tho grcat log cabin defonder and protector of tho West, tho soldior, tho statoman, tho honcst man, William Hcnry Harrison. How tho Custom Origlnatad Particulars havo beon cabled regarding tho attendanco of Mr. Asquith, tho Eng lish Homo Soprotary, at tho blrth of the littlo Duko of Kont, Tho origin of the custom aroso out of tho disputo that fol lowed tho birth of tho oldest son of King Jamcs II. of England. This led to tho enacting of tho law which requlrcs ono of the Secretiries of Stato to bo prosent whcnover thero is a birth in tho rcignlng family of Groat Brltain. Whon tho eld est son qf King James was born tho King's cnemies maintained that his heir was not tho offspring of tho Quoon, but , an infant that had boen procurcd olso whoro for tho purposo. Sinco then a Cabinot Ministor has always becn pros ent in tho room whcn a royal birth has takon placo, and tho custom has bcen adoptfcd by all tho Continental courts. Troy Times. Socrteary Carlislo prcdictcd last fall that tho Troasury doficit for tho presdnt year would bo 28,000,000, wliereas tho ligurcs. just compilcd, showtnat it lsao- tually $78,000,000.
