CAPITAL JOURNAL I'Ull. CO.
CoiiHlstenuy Is u Jewel possessed
by the few, and It Is very evident
that President Cleveland Is not ono
of those. Four years ago the battle
ery of the followers of the president
was, "Cleveland and reform." As
a reformer ono looks in vain for the
least manifestation of this eharao
terlstle. The elvll serviee laws were
lauded and endorsed by the best
eltl.eiiH In the land, and professedly
by the president himself, but hIuco
his Inauguration they have been
treated with contempt, and only en
forced Its provisions whim that prac
tice gave him the most gain. What
Ih "oll'enslvo partisanship" In the
republican Is commendable zeal in
the ditiuoerat. The federal onlelal
that contributed n small sum to the
mtceess of the republican causo com
mitted an unpardonable ollence
agidiiHt the civil service laws, but
the president commends the plan to
his democratic followers by chuck
ing into the campaign fund one-fifth
of a year's salary ; or by permitting
his " heads of bureaus" to demand
tlvo per cent, of the salaries of each
otllulal holding n commission under
him. J To certainly does not possess
ono jot of political consistency.
Ills friends understand perfectly
well that there Ih no such thing as
faithfulness in his nature, except to
hlsowii sclf-luterost, A Ufe-tlmoof
faithful service is to him nothing as
iuunmred with thopromlsoof future
ml vantage. In friendship and la
onmlty ho Is alike Inconsistent.
Forgetful of oervice, ho succumbs
romllly to the show of power. "What
ho would never grant to favor, ho
promptly yields to fear. Professing
to lwllove h Kteond term a thing of
jwrll to the nation, ho not only no-
6pt a ivuomluatiou, hut uses tho
power of his oillee to hocuro It. In
nil hlit life, hitherto, no ono has
found stHble ground for accusing
(Jruver Cleveland of oousUtenoy In
anything except tho pursuit of his
own MilMnterest and tho gnitlllen
tlon of hU own porwinal iWlras.
Even thuse who tltul oxbum) for his

only vir, In extemmtiou, that ho
"Free trade Is no doubt true In
theory but will not do In practice."
This saying of Our protectionists has
nftorded milch amusement to
theorists and scientific economists.
They exclaini, "as ifanythiug could
be all right III theory and and wrong
in practice," and make merry over
the ignorance of unstudied practical
men. Thus do our wise men often
make themselves ridiculous, ns did
the Greek astronomer who tumbled
in the ditch at his door-side while
gazing at the stars, regardless of his
The very nations that now Insist
on our attempting free trade
nre the very ones that forced us Into
common benso protection. -France
and England in their wars of 1705
1815 when our nation began her
splendid earcer and was ofl'ering
free trade to all the world, yes, when
wo were the first nation that had
ever ndopted free trade and were
extending our hands in the
spirit of amicable commerce (see
messages of Monroe and John
Qulncy Adams to congress ) to all
the states of the world, those two
nations closed our ports, blockaded
them and destroyed our trade and
held us under embargo by their
Milan Decree and Orders in Council
for years, and England later forced
us into war and into continued
blockades of our own ports. This
was a protective tariff with a ven
geance, and we were forced during
many long years to manufacture or
do without commodities save of our
own production. Our manufactures
originated under stern necessity and
they nourished as never before or
since, under this entire protection.
Our whole agriculture and manu
facturing system was perfectly ad
justed to the conditions thus im
posed upon us by ravening, cruel
war. Put, bless you, no sooner had
these two tigerish nations ceased
clawing at each others throats and
made peace, when they l.oan
to pour out tho products of their
long glutted markets upon us. They
had such vast quantities of clothing,
ammuuifion,armH, furniture, every
thing mado in cities, and such a
"plentiful lack" of country products
that they loaded ships with their
stud's and set oil" for America for
wool, grain, tobacco and other
necessities, of life. Our manufactures
were closed as by tho lint of fate.
Thousands of men who had patri
otically risked their all in doubtful,
dllllcult now enterprises here to
supply the needs of their suffering
fellows wore ruined. Down
wo must go. At tho same
time those foreigners put a big tax
on our products sent to their ports.
Finally John Qulncy Adams,
himself a most ultra free trader In
theory, (Just read his messaged to
congress) after expostulating and
making every ell'ort to havo fair
trade at least, came out In a message
and said, it would not do. Hero nre
his words, in his fourth annual
message, speaking of Greut Britain
ho wild: "She excludes all im
portation of tho great staplo
products of our Western states, pro
scribes bulkier lumber and live
stock of tho East nnd North refuses
even tho rlco of tho South
But tho cotton, Indispensable for
their looms, they recelvo almost
duty five, to weave It for our own
wear to tho destruction of our man
ufactures, which they tiro thus en
abled to under sell. Is tho self
protecting energy of this nation so
helpless that there exists no power
to counteract this'. Growers ofgralu
excluded from their ports, our ship
pers dismantle their ships, tho trade
of the North staguatesat its wharves
manufacturers starve at their Ioouib
while people pay tribute to foreign
Industry to bo clnd in foreign garb."
Hero then Is n free trader of freo
traders who had boon exerting nil
his very great pow'cr to introduce
free trade with all nations, and
who boasts in that very message
that wo imvo Ireo tnuio witn very
many states of tho 'world yet finally,
in utter disgust, abandoning It In
view of tho enormous evils It was
Indicting on the North, tho East
and tho West.
The possible results of the coming
electlou nre perhaps.more far-rcach-Ing
than Is generally supposed. The
republicans hold the setmto by a
very slender majority. The demo
cratic hope is that tho democrats
will not only succeed in electing
Cleveland, but that they will secure
a majority In both houses or con
gress. If the democrats can elect
the successor to Mr. Kenna hi West
Virginia and to Mr. McPherson In
New Jersey, and can elect Mr.
Thurman, they will have the cast
ing vote In the senate. The suc
cessor to Mr. Riddlelierger is already
elected, and he will take his seat in
the senate on March 4. With the
re-election of Mr. Kenna nnd Mr.
McPherson, therefore the two
parties in the senate would' be
equally divided and Mr. Thurnian
would have the casting vote. Tho
very earncbt nature of tho campaign
for the control of the legislatures in
the states of West Virginia and
New Jersey will consequently be
understood. They Involve the
possible control of the United States
senate for at least two years from
March 4, 1889. If the democrats
should obtain tho control of botl
houses an extra session soon after
inauguration would be probable.
For the democrats In that case vould
undoubtedly endeavor to pass the
Mills bill before the beginulugof the
next liscul year.
