Patrick A. Collins, tlin eloquunt ora'
tor And sound Democratic Btatoiinian
was recently interviewed about the con
dition of political affairs in Massauliu
olts. Under certain conditions there
is but little doubt that Massachusetts
will cast her electoral votes in 1888 for
the Democratic nominee for President,
Tho drift is all that way. The report
lof the interview is as follows:
Representative Collins, of Boston, is
"in Washington looking after some
'liusinens before the departments. lie
'intended to give up CongrcKS after the
4th of next March ho as to be able to
devote his time to his law practice,
but ho was practically forced to run
again, owing to the fact that the Dem-
. "ocrats m Ins district could not agree
vpon his successor. Jn talking about
the election in Massachusetts Mr. Col
lins said! 'The Mugwump of Massa
cbusotts has become a Democrat be
eauHO he is satisfied with the manage
ment of the Democratic party in the
State. Thero were a few local influ
nice at work here and there, but the
campaign was fought on the tariff and
not at nil on the policy and record of
the Administration, it is a great tar
iff reform victory, and the Democratic
I gains do not half exprw the desire for
tariff reform which exists in Massachu
aetts. Some of the Republican major
ities were narrow, and in many in.
stance, men who at least want to have
1 the tariff altered to suit the altered
condition of the ccuntry and tho peo
pie voted the Republican ticket through
i force of habit, and because they had
1 1' never voted anything else. I'ut the
force of habit will weaken. Massachu
'ugetts is marching steadily toward the
' goa.1 of Democracy, and a wiser and a
better tariff. In 18G8 the State gave
Grant a Republican majority of 77,000.
4i That 'has been steadily decreased until
i"at the election just held it hits fallen as
low B 5,000. Jt would bo a great
tVMnngtCj expect .Massachusetts to go

When tfi9 Legislature met in 1885
there was $300,000 in the Statu treas
ury. This surplus was brought there
by lijgh taxes, and not in the least by
an econoinicul State Administration.
Hon. L liilyeu, a Democrat io
representative from this county in
troduced a bill under which the
expenses of the state could be ex
actly estimated and the slate levy
made therefrom. The estimate of the
present Board of tax commissioners is
that only abouthalfas much money will
bo required next y'ar as was this year,
and the tax levy for next year is con
sequently much lower, for the reason
that dnder the law as drafted by . Mr
Dilyeu, the people or this state cannot
be taxed to bring sc half million dollars
surplus in tho State treasury. The
Salem organs of tho Moody Adminis
tration who are advertising the econo
my of his rule should explain why or
bow it is he expended a tax of from
five to eight mills in the years of their
administration, when they estimate
the expenses of a Democratic adminis
tration at 2 1-20 mills. The truth is
it tako more money to run the State,
than ever before, and thero have been
no reforms in the executive depart
ments of tho State, and the practical
reforms in the State Legislature have
been accomplished by Democrats liks
Mr. Lilyeu. We can say with truth
that the antic performances and tlis
graceful quarrels and rowdyism of the
Republican majority in tile two last
Legislatures were disgraceful in the last
extreme. Rills were conveniently torn,
mutilated and lost, and the sessions on
the part of -the majority was one long
jangle ami keen pursuit of spoils
and emphatic reiiKsrrtinn of rancorous
Knownothingism. The man who
believes in the lust republican Lgista
tures in the Moody Administration,
the Pish Ladder, eto, and who thinks
that the State expenses have lieon di
n, unshed one-halt in om years time,
.i. . i ... . . .
unner any ruie or in any state, is a
fool pqsitive, hopeless and'beyond cure.

The salary of the Superintendent of

It is not that this salary is too high
that it calls out comment, but the
