"Tammany is not bound to select a

nominate a man who is not a member of
Tammany Lall, if it is thought to be for
the interest of the democratic party.
The light this year is but the prelimi
nary skirmish to the real battle in 1890.
If the republicans w in in this city and
state next fall, there is not the slightest
doubt but that they will carry the
country in 18. They will also elect
the next congress, and leave the presi
dent without the support of either
branch of the legislature d'iring tbe
last two years of his term. My view of
the condition it that it behooves every
democrat to make sacrifices in the in
terest of his rarty."
The mayor would not discuss what
measures are likely to be taken to bring
about harmony w ith the state democracy.

nor have I received any intimation to
that effect. Of this I assure you."
"Will you dismiss the case if Mr.
Olney orders vou to do so"? he was
"You can easily understand that I
cannot discuss such a jwint at present,"
he replied, nnd that was all he would
say. It is a weil-known fact among
habitues of the federal building that the
United States attorney's office is con
vinced of the justness of thit big suit,
and it is considered doubtful if Olney't
commands to dismiss would be obeyed.

conclusion that there has been already a
sufficient exchange of views upon gen
eral lines, aud the time has couio w hen
a direct issue mus.t lie raised. It is
stated that a sugar schedule has been
prepared, which the senate will accept.
The schedule, it is said, still provides a
differential duty on refined sugar, and
in other particulars maintains the pro
tective features of the senate schedule,
Representative Bland has introduced
a resolution instructing the committee
on ways and means to report a bill plac
ing all sugars on the free list, and for
raising a $100,000,000 revenue by an in
come tax. Bland says, concerning the
resolutions: "I have not consulted Mr.
Wilson nor anyone else, but have acted
on my own judgment in submitting this
resolution. My purpose is to press it if
there are any indications that tbe gen
eral tariff bill will fail."
