The point of greatest importance to us is
the probability that India will not only not
be able to compete with the United States in
the supply of bread studs to England, but
that it will itself bn a large buyer this season.
This is an encouraging outlook to American
graingrowers, who will probably liuvo a
short crop nil over tho country, but who
should make up for the deficit iti yield by in
creased prices.
It must be borne in mind, however, that
KuBsia, and Europe generally where wheat
is raised, have prolific crops. Australia and
New i nland havo heavy crops, and Chile
has a largo store of grain. Tho knowledge
of these facts should deter from wild specu
lation, while in no amine impairing the rea
sonable probability of higher prices for our
breadstutrs. S. F. Examiner.
Iu July, 18H2, General Harrison delivered
a speech in tho Unitad Stales Senate on the
tariff question. Iu it he said:
Now, into tho (aril) discussion I shall not
enter, for two reasons, "I do not know
enough alxmt its dotails to discuss it profit
ably," and It is not proposed by nuybody, I
think, seriously that we shall now go gener
ally into tariir revision. I como, then, to
say that in supporting this measure from
our Finance Committee we are reducing our
internal taxes to these three articles (whisky,
beer and tobneco), which by common con
sent should romaiu "at least till the inili li
uite future" upon our IUt of products upon
which excise taxes nru levied.
That was aix years ago. He favored tax
, ing spirits and tobacco. Now he wants them
made free, and taxes retained on the neces
saries of life. Why?

Journal. About Cirovor Cleveland, the Minneapolis
Tribune, a Republican paper, has this to
"lucre, is n certain amount of manly
strength about Grovcr Cleveland which nec
essarily has its inlliicnce upon tho imagina
tion of men, Hohas first, the courage of
his conviction, and whether those convic
tions are right or wrong he never lacks tho
courage to proclaim them.
Again, he is a most consumate politician.
Hu has u sturdy independence
of character."
Iu the Presidential election of 1 S7 J there
were eight states which voted the Democratic
ticket; in lH7li there were suveulccu Demo
cratic slates; in IHhO there were nineteen
Democratic states, and in 1881 there were
twenty. In 187J theio were thirty states
voting the Republican ticket, or rejected or
stoleu; in l7t there were twenty-one thus
categorized; iu INSU there were iii'neloeii.and
in 1SM1 there were eighteen. This is the
inarch of destiny. Louisville Courier-Journal.
The Loudon Star, Paiuell's oigan, is be
ing ouuled by Republican orgaustliroiighoiit
the United States as favorable to the Demo
cratic party. Of course, the ignorant are led
to believe that the Star is an English, in
stesd ol an lrih paper. It is a matter of no
difference anyway, us tho p. .Inies of the
United States reler to this country alone, and
haven't the slightest connection with those
of auy other ronutry.
With the industries of the people, (hero
have beeu fretjueut interferences. Our com

Religious Papers on pending Isiiph.
The Christian Union, in a well-considered
article ou " The Political Issue," points out
the folly of the Republican policy, which, in
the face of a surplus of fclg.j.OUti.i IW and its
annual increase of JiiO.Oi.'O.O'HI, fairs to pro
vide against the menace of hopeless bank
ruptcy to the country induced by the accum
ulation in the treasury vauhs of money
which commerce needs It thus places iu
parallel columns the contrasting pioposi
tions of the Republican slid Democratic
Rep. Dciu.

Expenditures Liberal Economical
We know of no fairer or more powerful
argument than that expressed by this little
table. Nor is there auy stronger commmt
to be made upon it than that expressed by
the Christian Union itself, iu the following
"We believe that it has vital relations to
the future of our county. We believe that
tho coming election will be likely to settle
the trend of national life for some years to
come. Nor havo wo any wish to conceal our
personal predilections and prejudices. 'I hey
are iu favor of economical cxpenditiuci and
a lower tarill."
It is hard In see how any fair minded man
can conscientiously consider the issue thus
clearly made without favoring the conclusion
of our religion! contemporary.
The Chicago Standard uud tho Advance
likewise publish editorials expressing the in
dignation of the moral sense of the country
against the Rcpublicau platform, and espec
ially the "free whisky" resolution. The im
moral course of the "party of moral ideas"
respecting finance as well us regarding tem
perance properly evokes the reprobation of
religious journals on whoso support it has
heretofore relied.
A New Division.
As the campaign progresses it becomes
morn evident that the tariff issue will forco
a new division of tho voters.
Already fioin many parts of the country
come reports of Republicans who are repell
ed from the support of the candidates of
their party by tlio platform adopted at Chi
cago. Similar accounts mo published id
Democrats who will desert the parly because
of the policy promulgate! by the President,
adopted by its representatives ill Congress
ami indorsed by the National Convi nlion.
It is natural that this should bo so. The
theory of party organization ami party gov
ernment is that men who think alike and
whose interests ar identical should act to
gether. Why should a citizen who believes
in a freer trade, lower taxes ou necessities
ami the. prevention of a surplus, vote agaiut
his convietious because he was u Republican
ou the slavery question or in support of the
war? Why should a man who believes iu
perpetuating the war tariff, even if whiskey
aud tobacco have to be freed from taxaliou
and a policy of extravagaucu be adopted to
get rid of the surplus, votu with Democrats
who uie directly aud openly opposed to his
views? N. V. World.
The Democrats of Indianapolis, Harrison's
own home, had a uiaguitlc. lit rut ) ion on
Saturday evening. There weie ."itHMI men iu
line, (lov. Gray ami ex-Senator McDonald
made speeches. The following were some
of the transparencies:
"Cleveland and Thurman, the People's
"lilue Plood and Hoodie- Harrison ami
"Tho Germuns are Solid Against Harri
son." "The Chineso Must Co Thin man. The
Chinese, Must Come. Harrison."
"Tobacco is a Necessity .1. G. Itlaine."
"What About Plaukets?"
"Republican Platform: State Pride, Free
Whisky and High Taxes."
"ludiana will give Cleveland and Thur
man 15,011(1 Majority."
"Harrison Voted Fourteen Times in Fa
vor of Chinese Immigration."
Harrison on the Chinese.
Washington disputch lo San Francisco
Chronicle, Juno 1H, iss.8.
General Harrison took the most radical
position on Ihe subject (Chinese immigra
tion i, and argued that there would be pre
cisely as much justice aud propriety in ex
cluding Germans and Irish as in excluding
the Chinese. He criticised in the strongest
inannei the actions ami sentiments id the
people (d the Pacific Coast in their opposi
tion to the inllux of (Mentals. The club be
fore which this was read was composed of
the most prominent people in Indianapolis,
and many of them heard the address, which
was an aide and polished effort.
A Kepnhliciin Dimmer.
With the German press swinging into line
for Cleveland must como the question lo the
Republican managers, how they roposo to
do without tho German vote thev will lose
this year. It must bo a very solemn ques
tion lo llicm. The Cleveland Aiieiei is
the latest recruit, and in New York City i
the former German Republican leaders have
come over to Cleveland. It is, indeed,
a political revolution. Iu the wide extend
ing use of the term Geiman newspapers rec
ognize iu Harrison the Knownothiug, and
iu his parly Knowiioihiugisin.
The campaign eulogist in telling how Levi
P. Morten helped to save the I'nioli, state it
comprehensively iu mying that he "rendered
valuable services lo the Government in
helping lo tloat its bonds." Which means,
being iuterpiv ted, that he bought theiii
when tin y were cheap, held them until they
were high, and drew the interest on them iu
gold. It is the old story of the well-known

sermou for Oregon iu the news that conn a
from Marvsvillo, Oil. The ib ui reads thus:
"On .Saturday thMar,vavi!!c Fruit Company

to be the beginning of a large and important
trade in fruit shipments from thiji place over

through Oregon with profit to themselves,
cau not Oregon growers, who are severnj
