artificial portion of the boulevard in

CHASING LUNAR TRADE.
An ovation of which any man might
be proud whs tendered last Saturday
evening to Charles Emory .Smith when
he rose, at the annual dinner of the
New York board of trade and train
.lortation. to follow William L. Wilson
in the utterance of a toast. Mr. Wil
sod, with au apologetic anxisty which
very thoroughly indicated that ho
had done something in need of pallia
tion, had spoken briefly upon the ex
periences of a tariff reformer. For
courtesy's sake he was accorded a de
sultory round of applause. lint when
Mr. Smith followed with a polite ex
pression of dissent from the Wilson
brand Of SOOOOniOl, there WM a suc
cession of cheers and hand clappings
that must have made the gentleman
from West Virginia fee) dijciJsdly un
comfortable. And no wonder. For Mr. Smiths
toast was a masterpiece of doxteront
rebuke. Witness this single para
iJuriug the soleiidor nf our prosperity,

fair to become a political olassic. It
Just liti the queer antics of which Mr.
Wlliou I the pirent and type. One
thinks at once of the inpractlcable ca
nine who bayed himaelf lean and thin
out of emollient sentimentality toward
the distant moon, when he could, by
utilizing the opportunities that lay all
about him, have bad a good timo and lis
coinesleek and fat. The plaintive Demo
cratic howl for lunar tra la, u the ex
peuse of our every-day horns prosperity,
is an exact representation on s larger
scale of the folly of the moonstruck
dog It ispretty and bizarre and curions,
but for all that It is practical business
lunacy and it need never expect to
receive the permanent indorsement of
level headed business nun.
FEELING THEIR WAY.
The Democratic P;)iladlphia Hec nl
think that "if the Wilson bill was
chargeable with all the shut-downs
which took place months in advance of
iti enactment, It is certainly entllted
to claim credit for all the re-opeuingi
which have marked Its passage by the
bouse " This ingenious partisan plea
wholly loses light of the faot that the
"re-opinings" which the Record so
gladly clutchei at. as the drowning
in.. ;i is said to clutch at straws, are at
tended by wage reductions that aver -age
from tifteeu to twenty five per
cent, and by tbo almost unaulmoui ex
planation that the resumption is tem
porary sud toutativ.

realizing that raw material now held
in stock cannot be sol I unless nut in

thick uf winter, out of consideration
for the dependent families of their
Othsrwlie Worglssi employes ; and will
trust to luck lor the marketing of the
finished products, If the Wilson bill
passes senate and president iu its prst
St obnoxious form, this finished stock
will have to be eacrihV'd at euoh rates
as the market, upon 11 low tariff basis,
will yield Thereafter the business of
manufacturing to this city, if it shall
see a chance to c iiitinue at all, will
necessarily have toejo so upon such a
wage basis si will enable it to compete
in our American markets with thelm
ports from olieap-labor pro luclng coun
tries, temporarily ohsaptasd with a
view to undermining our higher wage

lowered tariff and under cheap water
