Last woek was a very important one

next, Mr. Cleveland was officially no

Thurman; the National Democratic

Mr. Mills says that his tariff bill will

he has received hundreds of letters
from Republicans in all sections of the
country commending the bill. I per

exoeption of the date. I think it will
be later before a final vote is mohed

now remaining of its final passage.

Harrison's Ohinete BeooriL
IIE VOTED AOAINST THE BILL TO EXCLUDE
CELE8TIALS FBOM THIS COUNTBT.
Gen. Benjamin Harrison occupied a
seat in the United States Senate from
March 4, 1881 to March 4, 1887. His
record on the Chinese question consists
of a single short speeoh and his several
votes upon the various phases of the
two bills passed by Congress in 1882.
The first bill was introduced by Senator
Miller, of California, and was entitled
"A bill to execute ertain treaty stipu
lations relating to the Chinese" It
provided tor their exclusion lor twenty
years, senator lngalls moved to
amend the nrat section of the bin by
reducing from twenty to ten years the
period of operation. On that amend
ment the vote was : Yeas, 20 ; nays,
21-; absent, 35. Senators Harrison and
Maxey were among the absent, but
Harrison placed himself on record by
writing a note in wmon no saia mat 11
the amendment should be voted
dawn ho would vote against the bill.
The votn upon the passage of tho bill
was : Yeas, 29 mays, 15 ; absent, az
both Maxev and Harrison being
again among the absent.
On April 4, 1882, President Arthur
vetoed tho bill, and the next day an
attempt was made to pass it over the
veto. The vote stood Yeas, 29;
nays, 21 ; absent, 26. This time Mr.
Harrison was present and voted "nay,"
thus sustaining the veto. As the neces
sary two-thirds vote was not obtained
the bill was lost..
Three weeks later the Chinese ques
tion again came np on a House bill in
every respect similar to the vetoed bill,
except that the period of operation was
reduoed to ten years. Harrison voted
to prohibit the admission of Chinese to
citizenship, but voted against constru
ing the words "Chinese laborers'' as
meaning both skilled and unskilled
laborers. He voted in favor of Sena
tor Edmunds' motion to insert the'
clause "that nothing in this act shall
be construed to change existing natur
alization laws so as to admit Chinese
persons to citizenship." Senator Har
rison voted against the passage of the
bill as a whole, senators Jdmunds,
Hawley, Sherman, Allison and lngalls
voted with Harrison on every ballot.
In a question addressed to Senator
Grover, of Oregon, Senator Harrison
succinctly stated his position :
The question 1 ask the senator is
whether, if the treaty and the law con
flict, he still believes in passing the law
and driving the treaty to the wall, or,
in other words, trampling upon our
treaty obligations 1

Washington, Jaly 4. Senator Sher
man left this city yesterday for Cincin

before proceeding to bis home in
Mansfield. He will return to Wash

tor tells the following story on the
disappointed presidential candidate
from Ohio: Senators Sherman and
Hoar probably read more novels than
any other two senators in the chamber.
Whenever one finishes a particularly
clever story be invariably passes it
over to his oolleague to peruse. They
have an excellent opinion of each
other's judgment in the selection of
reading matter, and whenever one of
them opens a book in the senate the
other will orosa over to his seat to
glance at the title. Yesterday after
noon Senator Hoar sat in his chair
deeply engrossed in a paper-covered
novel. Sherman passed down the ais
le and paused to ask:

Mr. Harrison's oandldaoy for tho Son

among the labor organizations. It
was expressed in scores of resolutions
adopted by assemblies and unions.
This papor opposod Mr, Harrison's

would prevent it from supporting him
now. His publio record in our judge
ment, has not been such as to com
mend him to tho favorable considera
tion ot tne people this paper repre

warn the republicans in timo. That
thoy did not think advise from suoh a

now, but hundreds of letters from rep
resentative workmon in this and other
states indorsing the SignaVs position
and breathing intense enmity to Mr.
Harrison aro convincing proofs that
our position is correct, at least from
the labor standpoint. Organized la
bor will decide tho presidential contest
this yoar, and it is almost solidly ar
rayed against Gonetal Harrison. In
our judgement tho defeat of Mr. Har
rison is a forogone conolusion, evon if
Governor Porter should lend himself
to tho commonly talked scheme of run
ning for governor in order to help the
Chicago nominee through in Indiana.
A second' source of weakness to the
Chicago ticket is Levi P. Morton, the
Wall street banker. It looks as if Sen
ator Ingall's advice to the Kansas
delegation had been carried out to tho
letter, it is a prinoiple as strong as
written law with Knights of labor not
to aid in the elevation of a national
banker to any office. Tho organiza
tion is opposed to the national bank
ing system, and recognizes in it tho
mainspring of all monopoly. For a
irreat nolitical titrtv to act into wall
street over which tbo curses of the
farming and producing classes of tho
nation hover like an angry cloud to
select a candidate for its national tick
et, is anothor thing that astonishes the
average working man and causes him
to wonder whether the monopolistic
interests of the country have not fore
seen the inevitable conflict and conclu
ded to force the issue without giving
labor further opportunity to organize
and inform itself.
Fostering Special Interests.
From ttie New Vork Times.
Until this lime the Republican party
has promised to reduce and adjust the
tariff to the needs of the government,
correcting inequalities, removing abus
es and excesses and prevor ting a mis
chievous surplus of revenue, only keep
ing in view inoidenlal protection to
established industries whero it is need
ed. Its promises have held many to
iu support But no 7 it abandons this
ground to its opponents and for tho
first time in its history maUes the fost
ering of special interests at the ex
pense of all others and the sqnander-
pg ot the surplus in extravagant ex
penditures tho corner-stone of its plat
form. No plea of fidelity to party,
however honorable its past record or
however great its achievements in other
days, can justify any man who abhors
this doctrine and believes that its ap
plication would do infinite barm to the
ndustries and the people of the oountry
in supporting a political organization
that avows it and declares its purpose
to carry it into effect.
Oonfeaaod His Ignorance.
In July, 1882, when the bill to re
duce the internal revenues was before
the United States senate, Benjamin
Harrison delivered a speeoh in which
he admitted that ho could not disouss
tbo tariff intelligently and advocated
the retention ot the internal taxes on
whisky, beer and tobacco for an indefi
nite period. Now he is nominated for
president on a platform whiob makes a
prohibitory tariff and abolition of the
internal taxes on whisky, beer and
tobacco tho prinoipal issues. Senator
Harrison said, on the occasion referred
"Now, into the tariff discussion I
shall not enter, for two reasons. I do
not knout enough about its details to
discuss it profitably, and it is not pro
posed by anybody, 1 think seriously
that we shall now go generally into
tariff revision. I come, then, to say
that in supporting this measure trom
our finance committee we are reducing
our internal revenue taxes to these three
articles (whisky, beer and tobacco),
which by common consent should
remain at least until the indefinite
Juture upon our list of produota upon
which excise taxes are to bo lovied.
Since he has been nominated on t
prohibitory-tariff, free-whisky and to
baooo platform, the ex-senator has no
doubt become enlightened in respect
to the details ot the tariff question and
hss also come to the conclusion that
the repeal of the whiskey and tobacco
taxes ought not to bo postponed to the
"indefinite tuture." liut what a states

From the Chicago News, Ind.
Co lonel John O.Now has erono to New
York. He does this regularly once in
every four years. Yes; as soon as the
Republicans nominate Presidential can
didate Colonel Now whows off to
New York. Why!
Bocause Indiana is a doubted State.
A doubtful State is a Stato that in
vites bids. The more bids and the
higher bids, why, tho merrier the situa
tion and the more doubtful tho Slate.
There is little doubt that for a num
ber of years Indiana h is been (in a
sense) a doubtful State; that it is na
turally and per so Democratic, but that
onco every four years it comes out of
the brush and stalks around among ci
vilization, wearing upon its neck the
delectable legend, "For Rent"
Colonel New knows all about lndi-
anna. Once every four years he em
barks in the renting business. Some
times ho is successful and at other
times he is not.
When he fails it is because some
other fellow has put in a higher bid.
Protection is a great thing. It
comes high, but when it comes to lux
uries some people are willing to pay
any price- ssow, so lar as protection
in theory or in practice is concerned,
Indiana knows little and cares less.
The only manufactory she has is a cob
pipe mill near Terro Haute.
1 herefore she is prepared to reoeive
and to weigh with judicial fairness
any proposition touching the tempor

Recovering Twenty Millions
BAIBIND AN OLD WRECK.
For over half a century speculators
havo been looking on a certain spot on
who uueau, mm a wuu uu me point 01
Cape Henelopen, and within sight of
the favorite summer resort on the New
Jersey coast called Cape May. There

wreck of an English sloop of war, the

fiosed to be a treasure in gold, silver,
ewels and doubloons, aggregatitg be
tween iu,uuu,uuu and g2U,ooo,ooo,
i wo attempts nave been made to die
cover, the treasure but both have been
unsuccessful. Ono attempt was made
in 1798, by the English frigato Assist
ance, but owing the depth of the water
and want of necessary means she had
to abandon the work. Tho second at
tempt was made two years ago. The
smallness of the vessel employed
for the work and a considerable doubt
as to the location of the wreck caused
this attempt to fail also.
Again, tho craze for securing the
treasure nas seized speculators, and
thero is every reason to eipeot that the
attempt this timo will be attended by
success. The Submarine Miner.! Co
of Philadelphia has been quietly but
dilligently at work, and according to
the evidenco of tho expert divers, the
exact location of the wreck has been
ilxed. 1 Ilia discovery has oausod
syndicate to be formed, which has
made a contraot with the United
States government wherein it is agreod
mat tno explorers snail pay IU per

usury, and tbo uaianco of the treasure
shall become tho property of the syndi-
vaie. Aruicu wuu mis contract, 1110
