M. S. Quay, Attest: C'hulrma:i. J ere H. Hex, W. H. Andrews, Secretaries. For the seven months beginning July 1, 1S9C, our foreign trade ninilit a gain of $90,370,671 as compared with the same period the year previous, but Inasmuch as J70,S07,tH I of this gain was in Imports, It Is nothing much to crow over. We are doing too much buying abroad. Better do Home. That congress made a muss of the Cuban question will not be denied. Klther lis first course In rallying for belligerency rights was wrong, false In foundation and dangerous in trend, or else its later somersault was a cow ardly bit of backing down before the clamor of ' mugwumps, Uly-llvered peace enthusiasts and downright, sym pathizers with tyranny. We do not be lieve in the flrst horn of the dilemma, and the alternative Is by no means more pleasant. The best thing that congress can do, In reparation for its blunder, Is to pass the senate resolutions anil adjourn. It has shown Itself incompetent to handle subjects requiring tact, patience and discretion, anil while It may at heart mean well, It Is evidently more likely to create mischief thun to allay it. These remarks do not apply to the house of representatives, a body which under trying circumstances has ac quitted Itself nobly. They are direct ed at the upper chamber, the place that mteds a cleaning out. The business Interests of the United States do not want any new tearlng-up of. the tariff, question. They, want a few glaring defects remedied; they want reciprocity restored, and that Is all. , . , .. ' For Social Purity.' "A number of young women of Wash ington, we are told, have organized the Kqual Standard Purity club. Their Object la to establish a single code of morals, equally binding upon men and women, and to protect their members from the society of men of impure lives. Every member is required to sign the following pledge: I solemnly promise, by the help of flod, to hold the law of purity us equally bind ing upon men and women and to use my utmost efforts to obey the command, "Keep thyself pure"; to discountenance all coarse language and Impurity In dress. In language and art, and to lend a help ing hand alike to men. .and women, giving the penitent of both sexes an equul cliunce of reform, so fur as my nssistuiice and influence can do this. It is further stated that a method of ascertaining the private lives of young men has been devised. Every young man whose private life Is found to be Impure will be blacklisted. This black list will be In the hands of the executive committee, the members will be In formed, and they are pledged never to receive the Attention of persons on the black list. It Is to be hoped that this courageous experiment will succeed. The single standard in morals can prevail when ever women want It to. It Is not mas culine depravity which Is discriminat ing between the man and the woman Inner; which exonerates the one and mercilessly condemns the other. No male voice ileads for special exemp tions and special privileges. The double standard in morals Is wholly the estab lishment of those women who excuse In the sterner sex misdeeds which. In their own sex, they make the provoca tion of systematic and exquisite tor ture. We are not, however, sure about the wisdom of the last clause In the pro gramme of the Kqual Standard Purity club. The chances are that If It Is carried out, the results will be far from satisfactory. Reformation is not usu ally permanent along spy lines. The man who Is moral only so long as he is watched will manage somehow to evade scrutiny and sin in secret. The black list is one way of doing things, but the white list rescued from blackness would be preferable. For all that, the Washington experiment Is novel and will bear watching. J taceo, the Cuban general, may lie sick, but his condition probably Isn't a circumstance to the condition of Spain. There is one consolation in the failure of this government to recognise ' the, Cubans as belligerents, j Americans whose property" Interests In .Ctiha are damaged by the revolution con hold Spain responsible. Claims, amounting to upward of 130,000,000 have 'already been tiled against the government at Madrid, thus materially adding to Spuing embarrassment In Jbe prem ises. . i . - r - ' A bill Is being formulated at Wash ington to assess every civil service of ficeholder 3 per cent, of his salary to form a fund for the pensioning of su perannuated employes. .The idea, so long as left optional, would be excellent. Once More th) flay brick Case. - r . One cannot help admiring the persist ence "of the generous-minded women In this country and in England who be lieve in the Innocence of Mrs. Florence Maybrlck and who, undaunted by two refusals by the British government to re-open that celebrated case, propose to carry on the war for what they believe to bo Justice. Such loyalty, fidelity and courage appeal at once to our warmest appreciation, even though as an ab stract Intellectual proposition their case presents hardly the shred of evidence and less than a ray of hope. The facts, so far as the public pos sesses them, leave in the impartial mind scarcely any 'doubt of Mrs. Maybrlck's guilt. Her conviction after a careful trial hedged round with all the safe guards' of Rrltish Jurisprudence, left the English government smull option In the matter of ordering a re-opening of the case. At the same time. Dr. Helen Densmore, president of the Wo men's International Maybrlck associa tion, presents good reasons why tlreat Britain, us an act of International courtesy, might extend to this Ameri can culprit a pardon. According to lr. Densmore, one of the lust acts of Sec retary Bluiue was to send a petition to the' English government signed by all th members of President Harrison's cabinet and praying for Mrs. May brick's release; while the president himself addressed a personal letter of the same tenor to the queen. Surely these solicitations might well hove been acceded to as a mutter of Interna tional comity, regardless of the earlier question of the prisoner's Innocence or guilt. Such an action on the part of the Rrltish government would be no more than reciprocal when remember that during our civil war an English captain who was' charged with conspiracy against our government, was arrested, tried, convlcted'and sentenced to a term In the penitentiary. After peace was. es tablished John Bright asked our gov ernment that the man be pardoned. There was no claim that the man was innocent or that he was suffering an unjust punishment. As a matter en tirely of International courtesy he was at once liberated. In the present In stance, the prisoner is a woman who, If Innocent, Is being tortured and who, If guilty, has probably already suf fered enough to make a tolerably fair expiation. I'nlucklly for this line of argument, the British mind apparently does not run In the direction of reci procity. The failure of Senator Chandler to bring forward proof of his fat-frying stories would prompt an honest man to make public apology. The Cigarette Nuisance. It has been the fashion to regard anti-cigarette legislation in general as something of a Joke, but in the state of Ohio, at least, it has become no laughing matter. A dispatch from Cleveland explains what led to the en actment at Columbus recently, by a unanimous vote, of a bill providing that "whoever sells, gives or furnishes to any minor under 14 years of age any cigarette, cigarette wrapper or any substitute or. either, oi any cigar or tobacco shall be fined not less than $- nor more than, .$100, or .Imprisoned not less than two nor more than thirty days, or both, for the first offense and lined not less than $r0 nor more than $300 and Imprisoned not less than five nor more thun sixty days for the second or any subsequent offense." The dispatch says that lit the neigh borhood of nearly every school building in the city are small stores where cigar ettes and tobacco are sold to children, and so general has its use become thut the evil effects have assumed alarming proportions. One teacher, after detect ing the odor of tobacco In the school room, Instituted a search and found in the pockets of the scholars 142 cigarettes or stumps thereof and six portions of plugs of tobacco. This was in a pri mary grade, where the oldest scholars were not over 10 years of age. Other teachers noticed that scholars were us ing chewing tobacco even during school hours, although they were obliged to use Ink wells, desks and sponges for cuspidors. The Injurious effects of cigarettes upon growing boj-s was pain fully shown by the fact that here were victims In the lowest high School classes whose hands hud the painful unsteadi ness generally characteristic of extreme old age, and thut more than a few were wholly incapable of any continued or concentrated mental effort. The rapid growth of the habit wus Impressively shown by the fact thut the percentage of regular smokers In the lowest class of the high school was greater than In the highest class, although the mem bers of the latter had three ndtlltlomil years In which to acquire the habit. It is probable thut u similar condition prevails In many other large titles. Thut It prevails, to a less degree. In Scranton cannot be doubted. The Ohio law is stringent enough In its penal ties to break it up, but if It should prove insufficient, other means will have to be employed. The stunting of the child mind and the child body by the deadly clgarette habit must somehow be stop ped. An amusing feature of Senator Will iam Fllnn's oratorical arguments in Pittsburg In favor of McKinley Is the fact that had Senator Quay accepted his terms of capitulation the same gen tleman would now be making the wel kin ring with appeals for votes for Quay. Governor Morton's "memorandum" accompanying his signature of the Raines bill presents strong arguments In Justification. The weak point In the bill Is Its making the excise commis sion a political department. To be sure, the local excise boards under the old order were political, and often of- rtetislvely so.- But It would have been better. Is Eee-nis to us, had the excise commission beep made Judicial in or Conization and In iiowers, after the manner of the lluckenbeig preposition In Pennsylvania. Even then, the fuc tor of purtixan bius would In all prob ability have- been none too obscure. Events are moving; raoldly in Eu ropean politics. The declaration of Colonial Secretary JosephChatnberlaln in England's parliament Friday that the Salisbury government had deter mined to al'l Egypt in reconquering the Soudan, sustained as It was by a vote of 2P8 to 143. brings into view a new center of activity despito the fact that within three months the attention oi' the world has been successively f.i cusscd on Venezuela, Torls, South Af rica and Abypsinlu. The reconquer ing of the Soudan, for Egypt means its reconquering for England; it means, furthermore, that Egypt Is to remain a British dependency. And thus the promise of Gladstone, made in lSSH, that England would, within live years, evacuate Egypt is carried forward a second time, this time indefinitely. If the senate wants by one final ef fort to redeem Itself, let it pass the Mor gan Joint resolution recognizing Cuba and hHve done with all this shilly shal lylng.

II 'I ! The Philadelphia Press errs when It lists t'ouuty t'hulrmun John H. Thomas as one of the national delegutes from this coun ty. For the beliellt of exchunaes who seem to be unable to get the name correct ly, we state that the two delegates from the Eleventh congressional district are. William Connell and John T. Williams. It-!! II- Says Mr. Kohlsuat's paper. In bold face type: "The TinrVs-Herald Is not commit ted to any candidate or any party and will not support for the presidency any man who In not an udvocate of honest money. If the Times-Herald did not believe Major .McKinley to be absolutely sound on the monetary question It would oppose him with ull the force at Its command both before and after the St. Louis conven tion." il II !! The situation with regard to Indiana hus beitun to give the managers of ull the candidates more or less alarm, as there are many shrewd politicians in Wash ington who believe that the name of ex President Harrison will be presented to the convention notwithstanding the as surance thut lie Is not u. candidate, and many of his. friends are hopeful that If anything like a deadlock exists in I lie convention - Harrison will be nominated with or without his consent. - ' i: II -M Chris Magee says that when the An drews I.exow committee was appointed, he told Senator Quay that the sentiment of the senators was not in favor of such a move. "He told me," adds Magce, "that they need not fear; that no one was to be hurt, and that he only wanted the commit tee to use It as a political club In order that Mayor Wurwlck would not turn out his. friends, und that the Phil adelphia, politicians would be compelled to do us he wanted." Thi statement would seem to cull for a denial If It be untrue. , II II II George V. Lawrence, the veteran legl.-t-lalor from Washington county, has made formal announcement that he Is an ag gressive, bona fide candidate for the po t llloti of congressmau-ut-large on the Re publican ticket. .Mr. Lawrence was an ac tive member of the legislature half u century auo and a regarded us the most picturesque member of the same body ut the present time. Ills frlMids claim that If llulusha A. Orow is to be retained us one of the conKressmen-at-lurge because of his past, It Ih no more .than proper that Mr. Lawrence should be taken up as bis col leu sue for the same reason. H -! li From now on the presidential contest promises to become lively. Only a little more than one-third of the de'ecutes have been chosen. There will be Mil delegutes III the convention and 3'ia have been elect ed. I Hiring the next htirty duys nearly uUO more delegates will huve been selected. The .Mc Kinley managers claim that they will secure er.ou!i of these to tiomlnute Ihcir man on the first ballot, ami that there will be u scramble to get on the Mc Kinley band w u non. This, however. Is probnbly mi exaggerate.! cluim fur effect. At present writing It does not seem pos sible for McKinley to poll more than 20 votes on the II ret ballot, or within TU of enough. It Is possible that the contested seats may hold the balance of power and that the committee on credentials will really name the president. At the same rule of progro s'S there will I).' over let) contested seats In the convention. Thus, these added to Mc-lKnley's column mlttht nominate him, and if decided against him meun his Uefcut. II I' M Walter Wellmnn predicts that McKinley will gH the following vote on first bal lot: Alabama Arkansas .... California .... 'Florida ileorgiii Illinois , Indiana Kansas Ixiutslana ...

I don't think there Is any s cret about it. It isn't the man hlms but the principle ho represents. It's I protection Idea. Tho repeal of reciproc and the passage of the VVilsoi-fJnrn tariff bill are responsible. McKinley not the personal popularity ! iilulnc-, hus he the robust Individuality of Cli land. He Is a man of very little magnetic attractions. He is not 'brilliant, nor wit- tf. nor wise.' He Isn't a great orator. He never makes u speech without careful prtparatton. and he has not the -gift of eloquence. His social qualities have never been developed, und us u conversationalist 4 well u m debater he Is slow and heavy. McKinley is a student, u man of fuels and itKucFH, who has never attempted to muster but one utibject. but that happens to be the subject -thai Is uppermost In the minds of x he people today, and constant ly '-minds them of their empty pocket. .In !NS2 the citizens of the Culled States, who number 7o.0cM0 and are mostly fool, as Thomas Carlyle would have said, got a notion thut tariff reform would make ih.m all prosperous and happy. So they blamed every misfortune they suffered to the McKinley bill, and voted the Demo cratic ticket. They have had nearly four years to reflect upon their mistake, and i ow they want a chance to correct it. McKinley is associated with that mis take more closely than any other man, und they think they can atone for It by making him president. That's the secret, as you call' It, of his popularity." CHICAGO NEWSPAPERS. . From a "Syndicate Article. In the matter of country circulation the records of the postollice show the Times Herald now has the lead. Mr. Kohlaaat, who graduated from a bakery Into jour ralism. has developed surprising capacity a newspaper man. His chief editor. Major M. P. Handy, tells me he never knew a man more fertile In suggestion than Mr. Kohlsuat. If he develops on the lines of his recent progress In journalism, he promises to give the newspaper world ore of the most striking examples In his tory of independence. Mr. Kohlsaat can afford to be Independ ent, l'stiully the journalist of high ideals Is hampered by the restrictions of the ctuntin; room. Mr. Kohlsaat s paper is edited and Its policy controlled entirely "up stairs." it hus left the held of ten satlonulUin and is bulldlug up a family circulation, it was probably the only pa per in Chicago which published the story of the recent prize tight in an Inconspicu ous pluce on an Inside page. The Trib une, which once represented dignity and conservatism In Chicago Journalism, now caters to the taste for sensation more than any other Journal. Mr. Kohlsaat of the Times-Herald prom ises to become a factor In national poli tic. He has been a warm admirer ef Mujcr McKinley, and he Is pressing Mc Kinley' claims to the Republican nomi nation In the columns of his. paper, not, he nays, for any Influence he may pos sesa In ease Major McKinley is elected, but beeuuse he believes Major McKinley lo be the best man to be president and be caus he thinks the people wnnt him nom inated and elected, lie has told hi friends thut he does not want anything from the administration If McKinley I elected, that he will not take anything and that he will not sign a recommends, lion for uny man who wunts an appoint ment. it will be an object lesson to the newspa per profession if Mr. Kohlsaat live up to his ideals In Journalism and prospers.
