The expected happened In the United
States Senate Monday when David 13. Hill
hung Wm. 15. Hornblower's scalp in his
belt. 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.

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;

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.

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.

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. It
docs this by largely reducing railroad fares.
Within a circle of 15 miles' radius drawn
around lluda Pestli, the railroad fare Is
but ten cents between any two points.
Within another circle of 24 miles the fare
is doubled, and so on to tho last, or 1-lth

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.

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

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.

Xo President ever ate at one meal a

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

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

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.
