of tho tariff;" tho Governor mid, "I desire
to oall year attention to a moot remarkable
declaration of purpose, upon the port of

tem, which prevailed before the war, it
will want to ratarn to it again. I fear the
people do not realise tee foil force of the
Demooretlo declaration in flavor of State

Tho speaker then took np the curreaoy
question, and olo*d by shooing the con
stitntioaality of a protective tariff, with
an exposure ol the danger of adopting the
revenue tariff, advocated intlm Democrat

A Hint of the Meaning.
In hie epeeeh At the If eat End, Saturday
night Congressman I) all all said that Re
publicans and Democrats agree that means
to rapport the Government should be
raised mainly from taxes on imports, bnt
divide when then they peas that point, the
Democrata holding that this tax should be
levied solely with a view to revenue to be
raised, without regard to its effect on
American industries.
What is meant by "a tariff for revenue
sufficient to oarry on a Government econo
mioiaUy administered!" The only way to
learn is by reference to the action of the
Democrats. It may be learned from their
action with referenoe to the new navy.
All arreara having been oanght up by Sec
retary Traoy, he wanted to add to the
number of shipe, bat they would not oon
sent to appropriate a dollar tor them, and
were only prevailed on after patient effort
to authorise two new ones. In substance
they said, "building a navy is not carrying
est a government" For the same reason
they would not maintain the system now
established for reetoring the merchant mar
ine by aid to oompanies in the shape of
pay for oarrylng the mails. Restoration
of this marina is not in their view "carry
on a government.
A tariff for revenue sufficient to oarry on
on a government economically adminis
tered means cutting off everything but the
salaries of offloors needed in the govern
ment The ohief idea is economy, not
progrees. Consistently with it the gov
ernment ought to sell the National Mu
seum and tho Botanical Garden and every
thing alee H has of like character in Wash
ington, beoauae the expense of these does
not oome under the head of carrying on a
government The Democratic doctrine is
that anything individuals can do should not
he done by the Government All Democrats
would not go this length; seme would go
one part of the way and another a longer
part Before one can know what a tariff
lor revenue means be most know the Dem
ocratic notion of what the revenue is for.
This is a hint of the meaning.—Pittsburg
On result of the Vermont election is

about 10 per cent of the total votes cast,

The Vital Point.
The New York .SUM prints a letter from
a California reader who wants to know
whether it is to be clearly understood that
the tariff plank of the Chicago platform
declares all protective duties to be uncon
stitutional. He adds: "There are eleven
Democrats here In Pomona who vow that
if you decide the construction of the clause
as in favor of the abolition ot all tariffs,
whether high or low, we shall not only
Tote the Republican electoral ticket next
November, but will contribute our services
and money to the election of the Republi
can national ticket."
To this the Sun responds: "There is no
question that the tariff plank adopted at
Chicago was meant to be the squareat pos
'sible declaration against protection and in
favor of free trade. It says flatly that all
protection is unconstitutional; and if that
is so, every intelligent man must be
against protection until the time, which is
very far off, when the Constitution can be
altered." This answer of the Sun is exact
ly the truth; and under the vow of the let
ter writer it binds the eleven Democrats of
Pomona to vote the Republican ticket. To
be sure, the Sun proceeds to say that the
tariff plank is not a matter of much impor
tance, because it may be repudiated. Bat
that is not a question of construction oftho
platform, bnt of the honesty of the candi
dates, who accept it and stand on it. It
doesn't mend the case to siy that, while
all protection is held to be unconstitutional
the candidate may be expected to do wh&t
he professes to regard as a violation of the
The question of the constitutionality of
protection is the fundamental issue. It lies
at the foundation ot the whole controversy.
It is the turning point of all discussion. If
the negative be established, it is the end
of all further debate. If tho negative be
mantained or professed, it is the end of -all
farther debate for those who maintain or
profess it The Demoeratic platform de
clares without qualification that all protec
tion Is unconstitutional. If that is so, as
the Sum says, every honest man must bo
against protection until the Constitution
can be altered. The Constitution is the
supreme law. It can not be violated for
mere expediency or policy. It can not be
violated oven for necessity. If the prog
ress of the nation develops the importance
of measures which are repugnant to the
Constitution, then the Constitution must
be amended but it must not be violated.
When, therefore, the Democratic plat
form places the Democratic party and can
dldates on the ground that all protection is
unconstitutional, it binds them to oppose
all protection, at least until the Constitu
tion can be changed.—Philadelphia Press.

«' [Special Correspondence.]
WASHINGTON, Sept. 26.—There was
one conspicuous failure during the Grand
Army reunion. That was in the effort
mado by the Democrats to capture sol
dier votes. One would scarcely expect
that the Democratic party would think
a gathering of old soldiers a sufficiently
fertile field for Democratic work to
make it even worth while attempting to
make converts to the Democratic cause
in it. But the situation is such a des
perate one that the Democrats have
stopped at nothing.
Wolves In Sheep's Clothing.
The result was that documents, espe
cially prepared to influence the soldiers,
were sent over here from the Democratic
headquarters in New York in great
quantities, and men employed to wear
the Grand Army badge and distribute
them broad cast among thb old soldiers.
It need scarcely bo said that this fact
when it became known created the
greatest indignation among the veter
ans gathered here. It was also discov
ered that the Democrats have adopted a
form of campaign badge which so close
ly resembles tho Grand Army button
that it can scarcely be detected as a
counterfeit. This fact added to the in
dignation on the part of the old soldiers,
who saw in it an attempt to make use of
their nonpartisan organization for parti
san purposes, after the Democrats had
even refused to appropriate a penny in
congress for the entertainment of tho
old soldiers. Tho contrast between the
two parties was strongly marked in tho
apparent absenco of efforts by the Re
publicans to use this gathering for po
litical purposes.
Comparing Party Records.
One of tho most conspicuous failures
was the attempt made by Democratic
emissaries to show that tho Democratic
party has been friendly to the soldier.
Those who are familiar with the work
of congress quickly met and defeated
this effort. They showed from the records
of congress that nine-tenths of the legis
lation favorable to the veterans of the
late war originated with the Republican
party, and that on almost every bill
passed for tho benefit of soldiers in the
war of the rebellion a majority of the
Democrats voted against the measure,
and that every Republican voted for it.
It was shown that in the aggregate of
the votes upon the dozen or more great
pension bills that have been passed by
congress nearly two-thirds of the Demo
crats voted against the measures, and
that out of the 1,300 Republican votes
cast in the house upon tlieso bills only
two votes were against them.
Record* of Presidential Candidates.
One thing that has come to the minds
of the old soldiers gathered here in com
paring tho attitude of the two parties
toward tliem has been the fact that
every Republican president elected since
the war has been a distinguished soldier;
on the other hand, the only Democratic
president served his country by a substi
tute, and of the entire list of Demo
cratic nominees sinco the war only one
has been a soldier.
One interesting featnro of the occa
sion was the opportunity it gave for
inquiry into tho political prospects in
various parts of the country. The gather
ing brought not only old soldiers of both
parties, but many others who were
drawn here to witness this great gather
ing of veterans. Talks with men from
every part of the country show tho Re
publican prospects to bo extremely
The "Assistant Democratic Party."
The farmers and others interested in
tho progress of the great northwest aro
evidently becoming rapidly awake to the
lh;ii tliiril jxwfjr iu ai±f.mpHnir
to nse them for the benefit of tho De
mocracy. They see that a vote with the
third party simply means a vote for
Democratic success. Tho Democrats are
quietly working through and with tho
third party to destroy the Republican
majority in those states which have
heretofore been safely Republican. The
thinking people of Illinois, Wisconsin,
the Dakouis, Nebraska, Kansas and Col
orado see that a vote in any of those
states with the People's party is really a
vote with tho Democrats. The success
of the People's party in any of those
states they now readily understand
would mean not the success of any df
the principles of that party, bnt the suc
cess of the Democratic party. It would
mean the destruction of reciprocity,
which has added millions of dollars to
the sales of farm products and is own
ing markets for onr grain and flour and
meat, and absolutely driving British and
German goods out of those markets and
admitting ouf own in their place.
No "Wlldcatu" Need Apply.
Another thing which the farmers of
the northwest are rapidly discovering is
that co-operation with tho third party
means a return to wildcat money, which
caused tho farmers such great losses
when stato banks wero In operation be
foro the war. The third party is as
much in favor of a return to this sort of
currency as are tho Democrats, but
whether it is or not makes little differ
ence, for the people now understand
that in voting with the third peoplo they
arc merely lielpinp to bring about Dem
ocratic control of house, senate and

the result of tho Maino election without
waiting for full returns. Now that the
votes are all counted Mr. Manley has

On a Cholera Ship in 1853.
(J. E. EMEBSOI IN Scientific American.)
I lired in Bangor. Maine, in 1&49 and
1850, when the Asiatic cholera visited
that city. I had a contract for a large lot
of doors and sash for the 17nited States
government to bo shipped to California for
some government building. I then being
in that business.
I had bat fairly commenced on the work
when the scourge broke out. My partner,
a Mr. TVing, fled with his family to the
country. Deaths were soon rated at one
to two daily. People there were general
ly panic-stricken, and the city was deserted.
Many of my workman left, so I mustered
all ol the pluck and courage that nataro
gave me and determined to live or die at
my work bench. My family, then only
wife and one child, lived a little out of the
city. At 7 o'clock every morning I was in
my workshop, and 10 to 11 o clock at
night often found me there. Coffins could
not be supplied in sufficient (juantity to
bury the dead, and I was besought to make
coffins, but my government contract pre
vented my doing so.
"While at my work bench I saw one man
die in a dirty cellar kitchen. There were
few if any regular funerals, but daily, cof
fins or boxes with the dead wor3 seen go
ing with the poor victims to their final
rest. It commenced there in the lowest,
filthy localities of the place, and from
there went among the richest localities. I
could form no other verdict than it being a
scourge of intemperance, flirt, an'l filth
and of rery high livers. I did not change
my method or style of living; ate fresh veg
etables. fruit, meat and melons. I had
never poisoned myself with tobacco, beer,
or spirituous liquors of any kiad, took my
baths regularly, and lived as cleanly as
There was a medical fraternity callod
the llot Crops, and they had what was then
called a Hot Crop hospital. The very first
thing that they did was to give a cholera
patient a dose so hot that it would almost
burn bis vital organs. I tasted the stuff,
and it was like eating red peppers, that
would make the tears run, and it was ad
mitted that they were the most successful
of any class of practitioners. It died out
with the fall frosts, and there ended the
most terrible scourge that I was ever wit
ness ol or ever hope to see again. I lost
money < n my contract, but got out alive.
December, 7th, 1852, T sailed from Xew|
York City oil the steamer Uncle Sara for
California, via the Isthmus of Panama.
We were seven <lays in that filthy malar
ia :md turkey buzzard region, with a rail
road to the Ohagres river only, -where we
were boated by natives in almost a nude
.state np the river to Cruses, and from there
on mule back or on foot (tho latter I chose)
until we reached Panama. There we took
the stea.ner Cortez, with as stern an old
sea caption i,s ever stood before a mast. I
had a second cabin ticket. Imagine go
ing from the State of Main in midwinter,
with the system and blood prepared ior
10-' below zoro, and in a few da.) s in a trop
ical climate at 100 to 110 in the shade, aud
one imagines the change and contrast!
No sooner had we left land than a high
faver set in, and .such a headache I never
bore in my life. My first thought was ice
water, but ice could not be bought. The
small amount was used only at the bar I
watciied where the bartender came to get
it out of a small room. I stood there with
my blanket, and as his back was turned I
grabbed a piece quite the size of a water
bucket, rolled it up and slipped around the
corner and off, rolling it up and hiding it,
and the last I heard of tfae bartender was,
'•stop that man!" but I did not stop until
I hail my prize hid safely in the bow ol
the frtiip. I then got a lady to new a piece
of oil tilk together and make me a bag. I
slept three days and nights by my ice,
punching off small pieces, and swallowing
them and keeping a little in my oil silk
bag on my forehead. When my ice was
gone my fever went with it arul I was on
deck again.
The second day out from Panama death
commenced from Panama fever, as it was
tailed, and such a condition as theru was
among the poor steerage passengers can
not be described, and myself one ol a very
few who was able to render any assistance.
I went to the old laDtain and begged him
to allow me to tuku a few dainties from
the cabin to the poor steerage passengers.
At first he refused, but I pleaded so hard
that he finally yielded and took me to the
bead steward and gave directions to only
allow me to take anything out ol the cab
in, and cautioned me to be extremely pru
dent and cautious, which 1 was. Soon the
Asiastic cholera broke out, and a poor vic
tim would die in terrible agony inside of
an hour. They would be apparently well,
and all at once in terrible agony, so that
tiiey could not stand, and then in a short
time all was over anil the body sewed up
in a blanket and tho feet weighted, and
they were rM<l oil' a board behind tho wheel
after reading the Episcopal burial service.
The mighty deep was their grave.
I finally persuaded the mate and ship
physician' to make beds in clear weather
on the bow deck, and all that were possib
ly able to he got there were taken. This
. ave them lrcsh sea air, and, 1 tliiuk,
saved many lives. J3ut as near as I could
keep count about 70 out of 700 passengers
dieu on tl at, choiera-strickeu ship. It was
said to be the most fatal trip t<i the Golden
State up to that time.
