Mr. Hornblower's nomination to be an associate justice of the United States siipienie court was defeated by a vote of 30 to LM. There was no doubt of his fit ness for the place, but in defeating his nomination Cleveland's enenjies in his own party saw a chance to get a whack at him and they got It. " If 1 were certain that wages were high er here,'' asserts Itepresentative Mack of Illinois, one of the free trade oracles, " I would seek to repeal those laws which make wages higher. In other words, American workingmen deserve to be no better housed, no better clothed and no better fed than the wretched toilers of Italy, Hungary, In dia and China. Mr. lllack would probably agree with the Uoston Herald that the American Hag is nothing but a " piece of textile fabric." The Democratic statesman from Troy, X. Y., declared in the House that if '.he schedule relating to collars and cuffs were changed so as to leave the duty where it is now he would vote for the Wilson bill. That Is, this member believed In all the protection he could get for his own con stituency, while protection in othersections was unconstitutional except for purposes of revenue. That appears to be the Dem ocratic idea of the tarilT as a local issue. The New York Post, one of the Mug wump papers which makes Its salaams be fore the shrine on which Grover Cleveland sits as high priest, realizes that the Wilson tariff is not in accordance with the Demo cratic platform, which declared a "funda mental principle" of the Democratic party to be "that the federal government has not the constitutional power to impose and collect tarilT duties except for the purpose of revenue only." The Post remarks, with something that sounds suspiciously like a shriek, that "A party which cannot execute its own policy when the means are put In Its hands has no further excuse or reason for being. The Democratic party Is in the very crisis of its life. It must act now or never." .1 .11 ii if Hopeful Oiilloiik. From various parts of the country there come reports of movements in trade and manufactures which afford the hope that the tide of depression may have turned, and that from now on a gradual revival of business may lie hoped for. The lioston Advertiser says: "The gain is not large as yet, but the fact that some gain lias been made in some direction Is at least hopeful. The necessities of the, people have led to j.r0p05ais aro to be received for the whole increased purchases of various lines of J orany part of the issue until noon of Kcb merehamlUe, and accounts from most of nlarv j al a lnlnImum ,,ricc of 117.223, the leading trade centres, particularly in or about $117.2.-. for a bond of $100. At the W est, agree in reporting a gradual re vival of trade. At the same time a num ber of factories have started up, either on full or half time, some with lower schedule of wages. New Kngland spinners have bought cotton rather more freely and seem inclined to go ahead. A slight improve ment is also noted in the demand for wool en goods, and the machinery in operation Is somewhat larger. The output of iron and steel has increased, particularly at Pittsburg, and notwithstanding the fact that still lower prices have been made, there is a growing sentiment that a move ment In the direction of a better market is near." t The Avertiser's intimate is based on liradstreet's ieport for last week, which gives encouraging news from the South, from St. Louis and Kansas City, from San Francisco, from Minneapolis and from Chi cago. ew 1 oik anil Isoston reported business still icmaining quiet, but it is a good thing to have rumors of better times In the air, if nothing more, and to begin to feel confident that the worst of the pinch lias been felt. Mlitttt-reil IiIiiIh. The Massachusetts Reform club appears to have had a very interesting time at its monthly meeting held at Young's hotel, Boston, last Friday evening. A very healthy number of the members were In favor of adopting resolutions censuring Josiah (Juincy, a prominent member of the club, and Grover Cleveland by name the former for using his oflice as assistant secretary of state to loot the foreign con sulships, and the latter for using the offices as rewards to members of Congress to se cure their votes for legislation favored by the administration. The names were final ly left out and the resolutions as adopted refer simply to the administration; hut the condemnation In tho speeches was out spoken. Qulncy was told that one would think, spite of his reform pretensions, that ho agreed with Senator Ingalls that tho reform of tho civil service is "an iridescent ! dream." tvnen some one urgeu mat, tno club ought to have "sympathy" with Mr. Cleveland and remember tho "obstacles" in his way, Richard II. Dana hotly an- swercd: "Tho club did not keep;qulct when a Republican administration was in power; Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest IT. S. Gov't Report. RoY&l ABSOLUTELY PURE it did not have consideration for President Harrison's feelings or the obstacles In his way. If It let Mr. Cleveland off easily for doing just what It condemned In Mr. Har rison, then the, club owes Mr. Harrison and the Republican party an apology." All of which shows how Mr. Cleveland has been tumbled off his pedestal since the fourth day of last March. The r.oKic i.r it. The position to which the final develop ments In the Hawaiian episode reduce the course of the Cleveland administration is humiliating to every man with the Instincts of an American citizen, and Democrats share this feeling equally with Republicans. It seems like the Irony of relentless fate that the country should at last be told, In an ofliclal communication to Congress, how the President had been trying to put back on her throne a woman who grimly insist ed that If reinstated she would first of all chop off the heads of her enemies. One tiling may be set down as the primary fact In this distasteful business. The Hawaiian policy of the Cleveland administration would never have been adopted had it nut been for Secretary- (iresliam's hatred of Mr. Harrison, and had he not thought he could see in this a chance to pay off an old score by discrediting the Harrison admin istration. Rut it lias proved the worst boomerang ever thrown in public life. The Antloiml I'liinnr.'R. Secretary Carlisle has made public, through a letter addressed to Mr. Voor hees, chairman of the Senate committee on finance, the present critical condition of the United States treasury and Its urgent needs. He says the necessity for relief Is so urgent, and the piospect of material im provement is so doubtful, that unless Con gress speedily gives him authority to issue shorter time bonds at a lower rate of inter est, he will feel compelled to Issue bonds un der the resumption act of 1870, sulllcient in amount at least to restore and protect the coin reserve of $100,000,000. Since the begining of the present fiscal year the treasury- has lost $2:1,000,000 in gold, and the reserve has now fallen to about $71,000,000. The net excess of expenditure over receipts to date is .f-l.V 000,000, or at the rate of $S."., 000, 000 a year. Secretary Carlisle has revised his original estimate of a deu'eit of f'JS.OOO.OOO for the year, as made in his annual report and inserted in the President's message, and now places it at $7S,000,000. $.10,000,000 lit ItiimU 1" lie IhhuiI. The bond question was settled Wednes day afternoon by Secretary Carlisle, who issued a circular inviting proposals for the purchase of $,"i0,0O0,0O0 of o per cent bonds of the class described in the refunding act of 1S70. The bonds are to be issued in either registered or coupon form, in denom inations of $.'i0 and upwards, redeemable in coin at the pleasure of the government after ten vcars from the date of their issue. the minimum price designated by the sec retary the bonds will yield a fraction over .'! per cent interest. It is expected that the premium offered will exceed the mini mum tixed, and that the bonds will bring 120, which would make them yield to in vestors i! per cent per annum. Vr I.Utt-n I'm ii Iteply.

The "zone" system of the Hungarian railways, after a five year test, has proven a complete success. It has more than doubled the number of passengers, and in creased receipts by nearly .")0 per cent.

The Hawaiian despatches and correspon dence, brought by the revenue cutter Cor wln from Honolulu, were sent by the Pres ident to the House last Saturday, accom panied by a very brief message. The docu ments submitted embrace all the corres pondence since tlie overthrow of the Queen, except a despatch from Minister Stevens, dated October 8, 1892, the publication of which is deemed "impolitic." It is under stood that this despatch relates to tho pur poses of other nations iu regard to Hawaii, I'o tiiose who have followed the succes sive developments in this Hawaiian muddle these latest despatches afford nothing that is really new. Their most interesting fea ture is that in which Sir. Willis describes his various interviews with the deposed Queen, and reveals her stubborn determin ation to cut off the heads of her opponents if she could get the chance. The first in terview was on Nov. IS, when the Queen came to the legation by previous arrange ment. After the cus'nniary formal greet ings, and an expression of the President's regret that "through the unauthorized In tervention of the United States she had been deprived of her sovereignty," Mr. Willis said to her: " The President expects and believes that when reinstated you will show forgive ness and magnanimity; that you will wish to be the Queen of all the people, both na tive and foreign born ; that you will make haste to secure their love and loyalty, and to establish peace, friendship and good government." To this she made no reply. After wait ing a moment, I continued: "The Presi dent not only tenders you his sympathy, but wishes to help you. Ilefore fully mak ing known to you his purposes, I desire to know whether you are willing to answer certain questions which it is my duty to ask." She answered: " I am willing." I then asked her: "Should you he re stored to the throne, would you grant full amnesty as to life and property to all those persons who have been or who arc now In the provisional government, or who have been instrumental in the overthrow of your government'.'" She hesitated a moment and then slowly and calmly answered: "There are certain laws of my government by which I shall abide. My decisions would be as the law directs that such persons should lie be headed and their property confiscated to the government." I then said, repeating very distinctly her words: " It is votir feeling thatthese peo ple should be beheaded and their property confiscated'.'" She replied: "It is." I then said to her: "Do you fully un derstand the meaning of every word which I have said to you and of every wonl which you have said to me, and, if so, do you still have the same opinion'.'" Her answer was: "I have understood and mean all I have said, but 1 might leave the decision of tills to my ministers." To this I replied : "Suppose it was nec essary to make a decision before you ap pointed any ministers, and that you were asked to issue a royal proclamation of gener al amnesty, would you do it?" She an swered: " I have no legal right todo that and I would not do It." Pausing a moment, she continued: " These people were the cause of the revo lution and constitution of 1SST. There will never be any peace while they are here. They must be sent out of the country or punished, and their property confiscated." This substantially ended the interview, except that Mr. Willis offered the Queen the protection of tho legation, or refuge on a United States warship, if at any time she had fears for her personal safety. It took the Queen over a month to get over her. idea of beheading all the mem ber of the provisional government. Her second interview witlt Mr. Willis took place on the ltlth of December, and in the meantime she had been in conference with .1. O. Carter, the brother of her ex-minis ter, and tlie effect of his influence is shown, for on this occasion she consented to spare the heads of her opponents, but insisted that they and their children should be permanently banished from the country Two days later came a third interview. Tills time Mr. Carter accompanied the Queen and personally labored with her to persuade her to grant the amnesty to life and property demanded by President Cleve land. Iiut Her Majesty was obdurate, and insisted that nothing short of perpetu al banishment, and confiscation of the property of the revolutionists, would fill the bill. Within two days of this time, however, when Mr. Willis had his inter view with the members of the provisional government and demanded of them that they surrender to the Queen, she had sign ed a written agreement to grant the am nesty required of her as a condition of this proceeding. Tho detailed answer of President Dole to Mr. Willis's demand is tho only other matter of interest contained In the des patches. The tone of the answer is strong, dignified and self-contained. In its essen tial points it is an assertion of confidence that tho ultimate destiny of Hawaii is an nexation to tho United States, a denial of tho right of this government to interfere in the domestic affairs of the islands, and a criticism of Blount's methods of investl gationjand repoit, and a solemn and ex plicit declaration that tho revolution was in no wise duo to the interference of tho United s States forces, Tlie letter closes with a refusal to surrender to tho Queen, and an assertion of the moral and legal impregnability of tho provisional govern ment. As a pait of tlie literature of this epi sode It may bo noted that on the 8th of December tho Queen's ex-marshal, Wil son, submitted -to Mr. Willis a detailed schedulo of proceedings for the Queen's restoration, this including tho landing of tlie United States troops at a given time, tho surrender to them all of the effects of the prov islonal government , and tho surren der also of "all their officers and men as prisoners, to be subsequently turned over to Her Majesty's government "to be dealt with by court martial! In the instructions which Secretary Grcs ham sent to Mr. Willis by the steamer which sailed from San Francisco Sunday, the failure of the President to restore the status existing before the revolution Is ad mitted, and Mr. Willis Is told that the mat ter Is now in tho lnnds of Congresi, and until further notice he is to consider that his special Instructions have been fully compiled with. C'ollKI'USSa Tlie general debate in the House on tlie Wilson tariff bill closed last Saturday night. A notable demonstration marked the occa sion. The hall was thrown open to the public, and, In the presence of more peo ple, probably, than ever gathered within its walls before, Representative Uryan of Nebraska spoke for nearly three hours in favor of the bill, advocating it as an ap proach to free trade. Monday the consid eration of the bill under the five-minute rule began, and will continue until Jan. 20. On that day two hours will be devoted to general debate, the time to be occupied by Mr. Heed of Maine for the Republicans, and probably by Mr. Wilson for the Demo crats. These will be the closing speeches, and when concluded, the House will pro ceed to vote on tlie bill anil pending amend ments. Monday's proceedings were en livened by a spirited discussion between Messrs. Reed and Cockran, involving the relative merits of tariff reform and protec tion. Consideration of the bill now takes the form largely of the introduction Mid discus sion of amendments during tlie day ses sions, while the evenings are devoted to de bate. The House refused, Wednesday, to adopt an amendment, offered by Mr. "Wil son, tlie author of the bill, fixing Aug. 1 as the date when the free wool clause should become operative. Instead it adopled a substitute submitted by Mr. Johnson of Ohio, making wool free from the date of the signing of the bill. Ex-Spcaker Reed is to close the tariff de bate for the Republicans on the afternoon of the 27th Inst. Chairman Wilson, of the ways and means committee, will per form a similar service for the Democratic majority. The vote on the bill will be taken Monday, the 2!lth inst. In the Senate the bill for tlie repeal of the federal elections laws is now the "un finished business," and will have pre cedence of all other business after the morning hour, until disposed of or dis placed by a vote of the Senate. Mr. 'nrllle' Himil Igxtie. I From the New York Tribune. I TliirtV'three years ago the Democratic party went out of power borrowing money to meet a treasury deficit created by its in competence. Within a year after its re turn to power, a great deficit created by its incompetence again compels it to bonow. Further, it is compelled to use for that necessity a Republican law enacted IS years ago, which was for years denounced n every Democratic meeting at the West and South as a shameless robbery of the people for the benefit of bondholders, and is forced to employ this same old act be cause, as its chairman of the finance com mittee In the Senate publicly confesses, the Democratic party, through its faction al divisions, is incompetent to pass any act for the relief of the treasury or the defence of the public credit.

His message to Congress transmitting tlie latest phase of the Hawaiian episode shows plainly that lie was In a most unhappy frame of mind. He had no relish for discussion. His only anxiety was to get through tho odious task as soon as possible. It is barren of any suggestion. In effect Mr. Cleveland says to Congress: "Do what you please; I have nothing more to say. tram assuming au tocratic authority he suddenly changes to a mere transmitter of intelligence. It is im possible to conceive of (iener.il Jackson as thus going in like a lion and coining out as a lamb. Tt-H .Mil, IFrom the rhleapo Inter-Ocean Tlie wool growers of Texas recently held a meeting at San Angelo and protest ed against tho free-wool clause of tho Wil son bill. In looking around they could not find a Democratic congressman from Texas who had the courage to present and advocate their petition.

Since tlie Democratic agitation for tho repeal of the sugar bounty law began, one fact has come to tho surface which has es caped public attention until now. It Is that, by means of the Impetus which tho law has given to sugar production, our home-grown sugars have become an im portant factor in keeping down tho exac tions of the sugar trust. Tho New Or leans Picayune, a Democratic paper, frank ly says in a recent article : "Were the bounty allowed to continue undisturbed, and the beet sugar of tho West, as well as our own cane industry, be permitted to develop at the rate of the last few years, it would be but a compara tively short time before tho masses of the people, instead of having competition sugar, with tlie attendant cheapening of prices during a few months only, would have such competition during the greater part of the year, while the bulk of the sugar consumed would be the product of home industry and labor." In the same issue of the paper appears an article from Mr. Lindley Murray Fer ris, a prominent Louisiana sugar-planter, who explains why the bounty law is so of fensive to the trust. During the Louisiana sugar cane campaign, he says, there are several hundred independent producers in tlie field, most of them making, or ca pable of making, sugar suitable for con sumption. Many of these sugars are dis tributed direct from the planters and re ceived by the jobbers without the inter vention of the middlemen. To meet this competition the trust refineries reduce the price of their sugars. When tlie Louisiana crop Is all marketed there is but one source to draw from, the raw foreign sugars. These come to the country and pass under the control of one great corporation, able to fix the price at almost any figure. De stroy this domestic industry and what will be the result? Absolutely no competition whatever throughout the year, one gigan tic concern importing, refining aud selling all the sugar consumed in the entire coun try. "Let the unthinking voters," adds Mr. Ferris, "who arc howling for cheaper sugar and a free breakfast table consider where they are most likely to get lower prices from one great trust or 000 pro ducers in their own country, who, if let alone, will In five years produce enough sugar to supply more than half of the de mand In tlie United States, and who are today spending every dollar they can make in improvements which are bound to cheapen tho price of sugar to the consum er. If the country wants cheap sugar let the bounty alone." Maple sugar, it is true, cuts no figure in the country's supply of commercial sugar, but Vermont growers are interested, nev ertheless, in knowing in what a broad way the bounty law is affecting the sugar in dustry and the interests of the people. Horner tireeley't Creed. There is no doubt that Horace Greeley's religious creed and rule of life were sum med up in this letter which he wrote April lfisili, to a high churchman who had written to him complaining that tlie Trib une called the Romanists Catholics, and admonishing Mr. Greeley on other points which are suggested in the letter: You see fit to presume that "Popularity is doubtless your (my) great aim," and thereupon to assert that I am constantly defying public sentiment, outraging con servative instincts and cstaulished convic tions, and grieving or alienating all those who would naturally be my best friends. My dear sir, if men are taught to rea son thus in your church, it is quite certain that I shall never be able to appreciate its dogmas. It does seem to mc that you ought to presume me wise enough to see tlie charity 1 extend to novel anil unpopu lar opinions does not tend to secure mo wealth or tame or power or popularity, but the reverse. Xo man knows better than I do that "ali the kingdoms of this world" are to be acquired by just the opposite course from that I have chosen to pursue by cottoning to whatever is established and popular, and esteemed by the wealthy and powerful, and warring upon novelties and innovations, i thinK I understand the philosophy of success as well as you do, and see why it Is that "the ban ot Man had not where to lav his head in an age and coun try which honored Herod, Pilate and Tibe rius Ca-sar. Hut I think I see that there is some thing better worth living for than temporal power, popularity and riches that God's truth is still to be sought among the lowly, the despised and the outcast, and that who so will serve God and bless man must be esteemed exactly as men of your stamp re- ' garded Jesus of Nazareth 18 centuries ago, namely, as a young man of rare abil ities, high courage and blameless life, who might do vast good if he would only aban don his radical notions and low associa tions, and conform to tho orthodox creeds and conservative Instincts of his time. To me the stable and tho manger that shelterd cd the infant Saviour are not dead, isolated records of what lias been, but the symbols of a truth that Is vital and impressive to day. I have never assumed to act as "umpire" between warring sects. .All I determine is what course is fair and just to all on my part. It is my duty to be a true Catholic, which requires of me a larger charity and more comprehensive faith than either Nice or Trent ever dreamed of. Briefly, my Catholic church embraces all those who truly love God and live to enlighten and serve their tellow men, no matter whether they believe tho thirty-nine articles or tho decrees of Trent, or never heard of either. I beg you to assure your Whig church brethren that whenever they shall esteem tho Tribune worth less to them than the money it cost to them I shall be better pleased by their stopping than by their continuing it. I am worn out with edito rial labor, and shall hail with joy the day when I may honorably relinquish it. Yours, HoitAc-K Giikhi.ky. The Senate refused, Wednesday, to con firm the nomination of J. Scott Harrison, brother of ex-President Harrison, to be sur veyor of customs at Kansas City, Tho Missouri senators stated that tho nomina tion was made in the faco of the unani mous recommendation of the delegation In Congress for another man.
