A Synopsis of the Acceptance of the
Nomination for the Presidency.
New Youk, Sept 27. The follow

accepting the nomination for the
Tariff legislation presents a famll
lar form of federal taxation, and re
sults as surely in a tax upon the
dally life of our people as a tribute
paid directly into tho hands of the
iujc gatherer. We feel the burden
of these tariff taxes too palpably to
be persuaded by any sophistry that
they do not exist or are paid by
foreigners. Such taxes aro only
justifiable for the purpose of main
taining government and furnishing
means for tho accomplishment of its
legitimate purposes. This is taxa
tion under tho operation of tariff for
revenue. It manifestly enjoins
Htilct economy In public expendi
tures and their limitation to legiti
mate purposes, Inasmuch as it exists
us absolute extortion any exaction
by way of taxation from the sub-
stauce of the people, beyond the
necessities of a careful and proper
administration of the government.
Opposed to this theory the dogma Is
now boldly presented that tariff
taxation is justifiable for the express
purpose and Intent of promoting es
pecial Interests and enterprises.
Such a proposition Is so clearly con
trary to the spirit of our constitution
and so directly encouraged by selfish
ness and greed of patriotic sentiment
that its statement would rudely
shock our people If they had not
already been insidiously Inured from
tho safe landmarks of principle.
Never have honest desire for nation
al growth, patrlotlo devotion to tho
country, and sincere regard
for those who toll been so
betrayed to support pernicious doc
trine, The plea that our Infant In
dustries should be fostered did ser
vice until discredited by our stal
wart growth. Then followed the
exigencies of a terrible war. and
now, after a long period of peace,
when our overburdened country
men ask for relief and restoration to
tho fuller enjoyment of the Incomes
und earnings they are met by tho
claim that tariff taxation for the
sake of protection is an American
system, the contluuanco of which is
necessary In older that high wages
may be paid our worklugmeu and
a home market provided for farm
produots. These pretenses should
no lougor deceive. Tho truth Is,
Buoh a system Is directly antagoniz
ed by every sentiment of justice
and fairness of whioh Americans are
pro-emluently proud. It Is also truo
that while our worklugmeu and
farmers can, least of ull our people,
defend themselves against tho hard

Invited and built up by the support.
Tariff reform Is still our purpose.
Wo wage no exterminating war
against any American Interest; we

olition. Wo bollovo tho advantages
of freer raw material shou d be ac

Uvea aud purposes and rely
upon tho Intelligence of our fellow
countrymen to reject tho charge that

paper, It should be so regulated and
guarded by governmental action, or
wise and careful lawTj that no one
can be deluded aa to the certainty
and stability of Us value. Every

ple should h of the samo value or

tion absolutely guaranteed that
both gol-d and silver can be safely
Issued on equal terms In adjustment
of orr currency. In dealing with
tb' a subject no solflsh scheme should
Ko allowed to lnterveno and no
doubtful experiment be attempted.
Tho wants of our people arising from
deficiency or imperfect distribution
of money circulation ought to Le
fairly and honestly recognized and
efficiently remedied. ,
It should, however, be constantly
remembered that inconvenience or
loss that might arise from a situa
tion can be much better borne than
the universal distress which must
follow a discredited currency. Mr.
Cleyelund udvocates an honest ad
herence to the letter and spirit of
civil service reform,
Speaking of the pension roll, tbe
ox-prefldent says: No complaint
should be madeof the amount of pub
lic money paid to those actually dis
abled or made dependent by reason
of army service, but the pension roll
should be made a roll of honor, un
contaminated by ill desert and
un vitiated demagogic use. The pre
ferences accorded veteran soldiers in
public employment should be un
grudgingly acknowledged. En
forced education, wisely deemed a
proper preparation for citizenship,
should not evolve the Impairment
of tho whole of parental authority,
nor do violence to the household of
conscience. Paternalism in govern
ment duds no approval in the creed
of democracy, or a system of mis
rule, whether manifested in unau
thorized gifts or by unwarranted
control of personal and family af
fairs. Generous hospitality prompts
us to welcome tbe worthy and Indus
Itrlous of all lands to homes and
citizenship among us. This is not
violated, however, by careful and
reasonable regulations or protection
to public health, nor iloea it justify
tho reeoptiou of immigrants who
have no appreciation of our Institu
tions and whose presence among us
Is a menace to peace aud good order
The Importance of the construction
of tho Nlcaruguau canal as a means

Secret Telegraph Receiver.
The- public has very little idea of
the amount of "leakage" that goes
on in the transmission of telegraph
messages. An operator may bo care
lessly lounging in the vicinity of a
way station or railway office with
his hands in his coat pockets, one
hand being busy in taking down
with a short pencil on a pad infor
mation of the utmost importance
which the noisy sounder is ticking
off, and which may bo used to the
eerious detriment of tho interests of
With a view to gaugo the extent
to which such eavesdropping could
be earned an expert operator was
employed a short time ago to call at
some of the Wall street brokers' of
fices, as well as some of the city ho
tels of Now York. Of some dozen
offices he visited ho was able in this
way to obtain information more or
less important from every one, and
in the hotels it was found perfectly
easy to talro any and evory message.
By way of remedying this,vory so
rious drawback in certain classes of
telegraphic work a "secret" tele
graph receiver has been devised.
This instrument is fitted with a special
resonator of aluminium of extreme
sonorousness. Although tho instru
ment as generally constructed may
bo kept f-o adjusted that no move
ment of the armatures can be de
tected with tho naked oye, and that
no sounds can bo heuid without
holding the ear close to tho instru
ment, this resonator oven under such
conditions transmits tho message to
a receiving tube from which the sig
nals can be easily read. Pittsburg
