JULY 20, 18S1
The Republican candidate for the
presidency lias sent to the committee
his letter of acceptance. It is the
longest that any presidential can
didate ever wrote, and is emphatic
throughout It reads in part like a
political speech, in part like a party
argument, and in parE like a pres
idential message. That which is new
is good; that which is not new is well
said. It is a square statement of
American policy outlined by a man
who has given the matter years of
study, and who has during those
years been foremost in the councils
of the nation. In talking of the for
eign policy of this government, he
"Our foreign relations favor our
domestic development. "We are at

With the nations of the western
hemisphere we should cultivate clos
er relations, and for our common
prosperity and advancement we
should induce all to join with us in
an agreement that for the future all
international troubles in North or
South America should bo adjusted
by impartial arbitration, and not by
arms. This project was part of the
fixed policy of President Garfield's
administration, and it should, in my
judgment be renewed. Its accom
plishment on this continent would fa
vorably affect the nations beyond the
sea, and thus powerfully contribute,
at no distant date to thn Tmiwrsnl
acceptance of the philanthropic and
Christian nrincinle of arbitration.

The letter is fully up to the high
expectations that were entertained
regarding it, and is a platform in it
self. The S:iltan of Turkey may be the
"Sick Man of the East," but' he dies
game. An exceptionally magnificent
reception was recently given to the
Crown Prince of Austria by the Sul
tan. One million dollars were spent
on the festivities; a new palace was
specially built, with the finest new
furniture,meats were served in dishes
of pure gold, and at some of the fes
tivals the whole court, thousands of
soldiers and all the fleet took part
This was not done, as supposed, to
conciliate the future ruler of Austria
and render him proof against any
desire to annex Turkish territory,
but simply in pursuance of the tra
ditional splendor of the Turkish
throne. Had the emperor of Austria
been the Padisha's guest, he would
have spent $2,000,000 and built two
It seems that ours is not the only
government swindled. It has come
to light that a system of swindling
the American and Canadian govern
ments has been carried on for years
by collusion between Indian agents
and contractors. As an instance, 300
cattle were ordered for Fort Walsh
by the Dominion government They
were delivered there and a receipt
obtained for them. In the night
they were purposely stampeded back
to Montana and sold for S7,500. This
game would be repeated on our side
of the line at Fort Benton and the
cattle sold to Fort Walsh. No won

It will be interesting to note the
action of the Northern Pacific Rail
road, after it leases the O. R. & N.
lines, toward the steamers that ply
between here and San Francisco.
They are the most valuable portion
of the outfit and arc in direct an
tagonism to the interests of the rail
road. An escort of soldiers now accom
pany every train upon the Mexican
Central railway. This is considered
necessary on account of the constant
efforts to wreck the trains.
The suggestion that a reunion of
the veterans of both armies engaged
in the war between the United States
and Mexico be held in St Louis, at a
date not- yet fixed, will doubtless re
ceive the hearty concurrence of the
governments and people of both
countries. The time has come when
the resentments engendered by the
eventful campaigns of 1846-47 should
be buried out of sight and remem
brance. The two republics have been
brought into such close relations
during the past half dozen years that
they are no longer mere diplomatic
acquaintances, with no particular in
terest in common, but near neighbors
in constant and amicable intercourse.

Mb. Blaine thinks that Massachu
setts has too much grass land to wish
to start a prairie fire; in other words,
she has too many manufactures to
favor a free-trade independent move
ment The inference is shrewd, and
yet it must be remembered that cer

for free raw material, and engage, if
that is furnished, to lower prices ac
The government's receipts from
customs during the year just closed
amounted to $196,000,000 in round
numbers. This is about $18,000,000
under the returns for 1882-3, and $1,
000,000 in excess of Secretary Folger's
estimate last winter. The reduction
of the revenue by the tariff legislation
of last year turns out to bo inconsid
erable. The cholera is still spreading in
