J. Blako Wallow, who waiohiof
clerk of tho Treasury Department un

mado him friends all over the Stato.
His death resulted from blood poison

tributing to tho $20,000 subsidy for
tho Philadelphia Press, to nav for tho
circulation of that journal anion ir tho
working classes, thoy aro reducing tho
wages of operatives from 10 to 20 per
cent. In other words, thoy contribute
towards tho support of a paper that
advocates monopoly, and then rcduco
tho wages of tho men to mako up tho
subscription, so that tho tree circuia
tiou of tho Press is paid for out of tho
pockets of tho laborer. This is free read
ing wuu a vengeance.
On Monday, Sonator Cameron mov
ed to discharge tho committco from
tho further consideration of the bill
providing for tho redemption of trado
dollars, lne republican senate Ueteat
ed tho motion which means that tho
bill will dio in tho committee. Trado
dollars will thoreforo continuo to be
worth 85 cents, and thoso who hold
them must'conlinuo to hold them for
an indefinite period, or lose tho differ-
once. Legislation on this subject is
uctnamieu by tho whole country, and
tho republican party is responsible for
its Jan u re.
Tlio continued dennsslnn In thn kIooi Industry

Blaine Has Never Been a Dead Head.
l'toin tlio Sprlngllclil ItepubUcan.
Considering that the publiu know
only about tho poor investments of
Maine, the woiultr remains where his
wenlth came from, even conceding its
moderate ninoiiut. Tho Spencer gun
stock was a good thing, and in that,
too. ho never failed to "seo channels''
in which he could bo "useful." For
Instance, in May. 1801, there was an
Internal revenue bill Dondlntr. and an
amendment was put on providing that,
in case of contracts with tho Govern
ment, tho Govirnmcnt, and not the
contractor, should stand the loss occa
sioned by tho now tax. That is, wlillo
tho brlvato contractor would havo to
pay his lax and stand tt, tho uov
eminent contractor would get exemp
tion or a compensatory rebaW. "I Urn
very clad,'' writes Blnino to Fisher on
this occasion, "all things considered,
that tho Government has accepted
your proposition to tnko all your man-
..r...i.. .in u .... , ion- i.
iiiuuiiiru mi oi'iu i, lou.i. 11, nui )jiu
a straicht and steady business for thu
company for a good stretch of time.
In regard to thu tax provision "
tho provision which you inquire nbont
was not in the original bill, but was an
amendment moved from the Wnys and
alcana Uomtnittee by 31 r. Kasson ol
Iowa, to whom I sumrested it. It is
iiist anil proper in every sense and will
Lffeot a good many interests, including
fyour company. I am glad to hear such
good accounts ot your progress m tho
nffairs of tho company of which I havo
always been proud to bo a member."
1' iom tho disclosures it is impos9iulo
to regard Mr. Blaine as other than a
man speculative and risky in his pri
vate ventures, disposed to watch for
"channels" in which ho can mako ofli
cial position "useful" to private greed,
and even when lie had presumably acted
from pardonable and proper motives to
turn around and market his official
record for tho highest prieo obtainable
in tho tvild cat bonds and blocks ot
chromo stock. The personal selfish
ness which mars a career so brilliant
in ncquiriiiK popular favor not only
gives a crook to his own actions, but
Kathers about him a class of followers
and henchmen in whom tho samo mo
tives aro still moro crossly predomi
nant, and gives to his views of nation
al polioy a tendency to sacrifice tho
safe, sure far sighted, and wide-reaching
polioy for somo immediate, empiri
cal, showy, and probably illusory poli
cy. Figs do not spring from thistles,
or sweet waters lrombilter lountains :
neither docs wise and sagacious states
manship eruanato from minds warped
by sinister purposes and beclouded and
drugged1 by a selfish materialism, cither
personal or national in its ends.
The crowning act o"f injustice in the

It is not likely that tho Alert can
carry out tho entire programmo pre
pared tor her by l;oinmamlcr Mcr.loy
nnd Mr. William 12. Chandler. Sho
was expected to convoy tho coal trans
port from Upemavik to Foulko Fiord,
arriving there about July 1, nnd then
to examine tho const of Greenland as
far north ns Humbold Glacier. All
Arctic travellers know tho sledging
Reason in Smith Sound is over before
Julv. Rotten Ico stopped Haycss
sledgo at Lady Franklin Bay on May
8, and ho returned to the ship with
real difficulty. Juno sledging parlies
mvo always met with partial or total
failure. By July the sound is general
ly filled with tho floating pack, which
puts an end to sledging or boating ox
Wlillo Commander Sohloy is anx
iously watching tho coasts of Griuncll
Land and waiting for the west winds
that aro likely to open lends northward
along that coast, it is piobably imma
terial whether the Greenland shoro
Heboat Cove is examined or not.
Greely could hardly get thcro in any
ovent! nnd it Is difficult to see why ho
should wish to do ho. The Esquimaux
icmselves never venture into that re
gion except to hunt bears and then
only in cases of dire extremity.
Wo may reasonably expect to hear
news from tho expedition early in Oc
tober, either by tho return of tho en
tire party or by tho arrival at St. Johns
of the Alert. Tlio fact seems to hnvo
been generally overlooked that the
Thetis and Bear wero provided with
complete scientific outfits. Three of
their officers weio recently on duty at
tho Smithsonian Institute under train-
lie for scientific work. They wero in
structed to take such observations as
would not inlorfero with tho main ob
ject. If they have to winter north,
contingency whioh there nro good
grounds for hoping will not occur, thoy
will mako thu eighth meteorological sta
tion that has occupied Smith Sound.
In fact tho lives of tho Greely party
wero needlessly risked in a locality
that has been favorod moro frequently
with scientific stations than any other
high northern latitude. AT. Y. Sun.

isfactorily to tho people why it is that
.1 t. 3 ' j
inert? is bucii uuprcssion in uiu iron anu
steel works of this country. These in
dustrics aro protected by a tariff law
passed by a republican congress, and
wo aro daily informed that tho "grand
old party" is tho only one that fosters
tho manufacturing interests of tho na
tion, and that a high protective tariff
means high wages, and general pros
perity. For year9 tho iron trado has
been dull, and many of tho great in
dustries havo languished under the
fostering caro of tho Republican party,
and still they plead to be kept in pow
er in order that this condition of things
may continue. Wo aro in favor of a
protective tariff as wo believo tho ma
jority of tho Democratic party is, but
tho claim of tho Republican organs
that the prosperity of tho country de
pends upon tho election of a Republi
can President is a false pretense, and a
sham that has played itself out. Tho
stagnation in business is a simplo caso
of too much supply for tho demand,
and can regnlato only itself when the do
mand equals tho Bupply. No political
party can regulate it. Tho Democrat
ic party does not favor freo trado. In
fact wo know of no ono who favors ab
soluto freo trade. What is demanded
is a tariff reform that will rcduco the
cost of necessary articles, get rid of
mo surplus ot ono hundred millions in
me treasury, abolish tho internal revo
nuo tax, and at the same timo protect
American industries for tho benefit of
tho laboring classes, and not simply for
tho protection of monopolies. To claim
that tho success of auy party will start
np tho Hundreds ot lurnacca and roll
ing mills that arc now idlo is as pre
posterous as it is false, and it is about
time for tho Repnblican party to begin
to taiK senso on this subject.
Eleotoral Vote, 1884 New Apportionment.
An Important Deoision.
Judge Allison of Philadelphia has
given an important iut6rprctatiou of
the law ot banking in an opinion in
tho caso of Harrington & Goodman
against tho Merchant's National Bank.
Tho suit grew out of a deposit by the
lirra with the bank, in .November last,
of a check drawn on the Mississippi
Valley Bank of Vicksburg. It was
credited as a deposit, mailed to the
Vicksburg bank and paid by a draft
on tho Hanover Bank, of New York
City. Just before tho deposit arrived
tho Vtcksbnrg bank failed and, as it
had no funds on deposit with tho Han
over Bank, tho latter returned the draft
unpaid. The plaintiff's account was
opened with tho provision that their re
sponsibility on deposited checks con
tinned until payment had been ascer
tained by the bank. All theso facts
In passing judgment Judge Allison
said that the majority of the court
agreed in favor of the plaintiffs. Ho
adds: "Whateyer may havo been the
tights of tho defendants as holders of
tho check their duty under tho law re
quired them to forward it to a correspon
dent or a sub-agent, with instructions
to present tho samo lor payment, and,
if payment was refused, to havo it re
turned at once. Had this been done,
tho rights of all parties would hnvo
been protected. '
Judge 1'iercu Idea a dissenting opin
ion, holding that the question m caso
was whether tho detendant bank was
nuilty of such neglect as released tho
plaintius from liability as endorsers.
lie did not consider that it was. "lho
Merchants' Bank," ho says, "discharg
ed us whole duty in lorwarding tho
check for payment and in giving prompt
notice ot its dishonor to tho plaintius
when they learned it was not paid.

From tho C'liteam Times.
0) As speaker, Mr. Blaine made a
ruling that assured tho passage of a
bill granting a big land subsidy to tho
Little Hock Hallway Company ot Ar
kansas. (2) Threo mouths afterward
Mr. Blaino wrote to his friend Fishor
(contractor for tlio construction of tho
railway) asking him to nso his good
offices with Mr. CaldwelKwho controll-
ed the enterprise) to obtain from tho
latter a proposition to admit Mr,
Blaino to an interest in its ownership,
"I do not feci, ho said, "that I shall
prove a deadhead in the enterprise if
J once emitarc tn u. x see various
channels in which J know I can be
useful." Ho was then speaker of tho
house. (3) A fow days later ho wroto
a letter to "Dear V isher," thanking
him for his "liberal rnodo of dealing
with me," and reiterat'ng his desiro
that ho sho'-'d "brliin Caldwll lo
delnito proposition." It is an infer
ence that tho intermediary did not find
Caldwell quito agrceablo to tho views
of Mr. Speaker, for, (1) October -1, tho
latter wroto to Fisher again, telling
him tho storv of his ruling in tho
speaker's ohair, showing that he, as
sneaker, scoured to tho company its
land grant, and concluding : "At that
timo had never boot Mr, Caldwell, but
von can tell him that, without knoio
in'. T did him a great favor." (C)
On tho samo day ho wroto another
cpistlo to Fisher, asking him to read
tho Globe (a Boston newspnperof lofty
virtue, which ho forwarded), and seo
how narrowly, by mentis of his ruling,
the Little Rock laud graut escaped u
Tne Greely Belief ttwty.
Tho two advance vessels of the
Greely relief expedition havo already
reached Smith Sound. People who
thought tho expedition set out too car
lv fortrot that vViiliain Baffin, who
discovered tho sound in 1G1G, was near
Littleton island in his liity six ton ship
beforu the end of June, and that such
Arctio authorities as Clements Mark-
ham and Dr. Kane believed that ox
plorers should reach tho edge of tho
raiucuo pacK ucioro ino cioso oi May,
Tho Greenland whalers havo often
demonstrated that this great ico field
in Melvillo Bay, tho only serious ob
stacles on the way to Smith Sound,
can bo crossed in May or early jn Juno
by skirting along tho shoro ico. Near
ly a month before Greely sailed from
St. Johns in 1881 fomteen whalers had
passed Melvillo Bay, and in 1873 Bud-
mgton's Polaris party wero picked up
in tho bay by a whaler threo weeks bo
foro tho relief steamer sailed from Now
It is possiblo that Commander Sohloy
has uoioro uus learned me laio ot
Greely nnd his men, if they reached
Littleton s Island, lho chances, how
ever, aro rather against Grcelv's hav
ins left Discovery Harbor. Successful
Bledgu journeys ovf r long distances
have never been made in tho fall by
Smith Sound explorers. Excellent au
thorities, liko Dr. Bessels and Major
Fielden, believo that Ureely could not
hnvo mado thn journey last fall, owing
to tho lormidnuio naturo oi ainiin
Sound ice and thu advancing darkness.
It does not seem probable, either,
that a party of men who havo lived
three years whero tho arctio night is
140 days long wero well prepared in
Anrll and Mav this year to battlo with
tho obstacles that woro out Hayes's
fresh sledgomon in tho spring ot 1801
nnd limited them to an ndvaneo ol

all probability, have to bo sought at

Tho dirt shoveled up'on tho country
roads by tho supervisors' directions has
been washed away by recent rains.
This happens with great regularity ov-
ery bpnng. Whilo tho present
system of road-making is continued tho
bad roads aro likely to continue. Wo
go on, year in and year out, liko the
spiders which spin webs within reach
of the housekeeper's broom, throwing
loose dirt on tho roads, only to see it
washed away inside a low weeks, and
for tho rest ofitho year tho repairs are
made to vehicles, harness and horse
flesh. Tho Reading Times suggests a
Stato. superintendent of publio roads
and a btato appropriation ot 9l,UU0,-
000 annually, distributed liko tho school
turn), on condition that each township
collects a road tax equal in amount to
tho sum it would receive from the
State. Bad roads can only be made,
good by the expenditure of money.
Whether the money is raised by the
State or by the neighborhoods, it will
have to come .out of, tho pockets of tho
people. If tho people of the oountics
really think that good roads can only
bo obtained by a general road law and
appropriation, they havo tho power
to obtain tho State's assistance
through tho Legislature. Tho coun
ties need improved roads moro than
Philadelphia needs better streets, and
it should bo pretty well proved by this
time that the townships are unable,
separately, to maintain good highways,
