"William M. Evarts, speaking from
the historical standpoint at the Re
publican ratification meeting in New
York last Tuesday, stated that pro
tection means American indepen
dence. To those who have not given
the subject attention, that ma seem
to be merely a. campaign averment
thrown off to tickle the ears of the
groundlings. The hard facts that we
govern ourselves, make peace and
war, and demean ourselves generally
as an independent nation, are op
posed to such a view. But, for all
that, no more epigraraatic form was
ever given to a great economical
truth. Protection means that indus
trial independence without which po
litical independence cannot be of any
great value. If the doctrine of free
trade, to which the Democratic party
is wedded, but which half the lime it
lacks the moral courage to circum
stantially avow, were now set up, the
effects of the political independence
won in the revolution would in a
large sense be frittered away.
The policy of Great Britain, hand
ed down from generation to genera
lion and from dynasty to dynasty,
has been to make her dependencies
grow up in the manner that would
be most profitable to the mother
country. With this object held
steadily in view it crashed out every
industry in Ireland which could in
any manner interfere with English
operations. Petitions were piled on
petitions to Parliament in the last
century for the suppression of com
petition in whatever form it present
ed itself across the channel, and in
most instances the prayer was grant
ed. The application of the same
principle brought on the revolution
in America. Industries of various
kinds that conflicted with home en
terprise were sternly forbidden.
Trade was only allowed to the colon
ies with those nations where British
interests could not be injured. This
policy was maintained by arms for
long periods. A refusal to submit to
that sort of national death was called
rebellion and was treated accordingly.
Ireland rebelled frequently and was
defeated and crushed. The Ameri
can colonies rebelled and won their
But Great Britain has never ceased
scheming to regain the commercial
supremacy which it lost in this hem
isphere over a century ago. In the
treaty concluded by John Jay in the
first years of the Republic, some of the
fruits of victory were lost. Tariff ar
rangements were effected by which
many American industries, which
have since blossomed forth under
protection, were prematurely nipped
in the bud. The war of 1812 was a
reversion to the old method of shap
ing trade to suit itself by force of
arms. The purpose was by a series
of outrages to force us again into
war, which it was thought might lead
to our subjugation once more. But
continental complications and our
own pluck defeated the scheme. The
period during which competition was
suppressed by the iron hand wherev
er it could be applied, gave England
such a start that competition else
where in modern times is impossible,
without a resort to what is known as
protection. That nation has accumu
lated such vast capital, skill and ma
chinery that rivalry on the part of
any other nation, unless artificial
barriers are set up, is out of the
It was in obedience to traditional
policy that England lent such aid and
comfort to the rebellion in the United
States. It was quite evident that if
we broke up into a number of jarring
states no customs league for the pro
tection of native industries would for
a long time be agreed upon. It is a
matter of doubt whether such a zoll
verein could ever have been erected
on the ruins of the political union.
This would have been England's op
portunity, and she was not slow to
help secession to the best of her abil
ity. For some reason, which need not
now be explored, the Democratic
party ha3 for a long time been the ef
ficient agent for the promotion of
these schemes. Perhaps ignorance
has as much to do with its doubtful
course as anything else. In former
times whenever it got into power it
gravitated toward free trade. There
is probably nothing more in it than
blind hereditary tendency. Accord
ing as duties are reduced foreign
trade is stimulated, American manu
factures decline, and gold flows out
of the country. There is a sort of
importing bonanza for a season, and
then a general collapse. This hap
pened already several times. In ad
dition the Democratic party to all
appearances, finding its spasmodic
efforts at free trade to be too slow a
process in depriving the country of
the fruits of independence, embraced
the, speedier method of breaking it
up by the sword.
All these efforts were properly ap
preciated abroad. During the civil
war it will be remembered that the
Southern leaders were,' according to
the British papers, statesmen, gener
als and heroes. The North it wa3
said, was populated by the scum of
Europe. If Judah P. Benjamin had
not burned all his letters and private
memoranda, probably some new light
would have been thrown on that in
teresting subject It is quite certain
however, thatmuchof what is hidden
from us now will be revealed to the
next generation. The same general
facts are observable now. Blaine is
not at all popular in England. There
is no mistake that British interests
are allied with those of Cleveland and
the Democracy. We notice that there
is some dissatisfaction with the plat
form. It is treated like somethincr
bought and paid for, but in the do
livery of which fraud had been per
petrated. But when the two-faced
nature of Democratic platforms is
better understood there will bo less
dissatisfaction on that score.
The free trade toward which Dem
ocracy will certainly travel, platform
or no platform, if it should ever gain
supreme power, means that the arti
cles, to the value of hundreds of mil
lions of dollars, wo now manufacture
for ourselves, shall hereafter be made
for us in England and elsewhere;
that we shall order our industrial life
in the way that will best promote the
interests of rival nations; and that
our skilled artisans shall emigrate,
or enter into a losing and wasting
struggle for life in connection with
agriculture, which willthenbe fright
fully overdone. It is quite evident
that English manufacturers could af
ford to pay an enormous sum for
such advantages as the Democracy
hold out. Lyons in Frauce, the cen
ter of the silk trade, as well as Man
chester, Sheffield, and Birmingham
would gain by subscribing to promote
Democratic success. We do not say
that tlie' have, or that they are go
ing to do so, for we do not know the
facts. But there is money in the bus
iness, and it is not the first time a
country has been sold out.
Some Political Possibilities Smrsct-ted.
Information has been received in
Chicago from close political friends
of General Butler by B. F. Shively,
secretary of the Anti-Monopolist
committee, dispelling doubts regard
ing Butler's candidacy for the presi
dency on an independent ticket and
stating definitely and positively that
he will run. Shively, who is at the
Briggs house, expressed to-day the
most absolute certainty that Butler
would be a candidate, with the en
dorsement of the Greenbackers, Anti
Monopolists and probably of the
laboring men. Butler's refusal at
present to make a public statement,
Shively says, is prompted by a desire
to first see what will bo done by the
convention of labor representatives,
to be held in Chicago on July 30th.
"But his course will not be altered if
the labor men do not indorse him,"
said Mr. Shively. "He will be a can
didate it the labor convention ignores
him, and ho will go in to win or make
the campaign uncertain, with tho two
nominations he already has those of
the Greenbackers and Anti-Monopolists."
"You do not believe that ho will be
elected, do you?"
"It would be making a bold state
ment to say that I do',' replied Mr.
Shively. "There have, however,
stranger things than this happened.
Butler's candidacy would introduce
an uncertain element iu tho cam
paign. If he runs, wo expect him to
carry Michigan and Iowa, and per
haps Massachusetts. This is giving
him the lowest possible estimate, and
with these we might bo able to throw
the election into the house of repre
sentatives." "How could you do that?"
"If Blaine received 196 electoral
votes, Cleveland 195. and Butler 10.
that would do it The prospects of a 1
very close race between the Demo
crats and Republicans is good. It is
not impossible that Blaine and Clove-
land may receive 19G and 195 votes,
respectively. The total number of
electors is 401, and 201 are necessary
lor a choice. If neither receives 201,
and if the electoral college cannot
agree, the house will take up tho elec
"Then will not tho Democrats huvo
the decision of the matter?"
"No. Congress would vote by
states. Michigan, I believe, has the
deciding vote, and the Greenbacker
from that state has, in turn, the de
ciding vote in that delegation. If
Butler is in the campaign, as you can
see, and in the event of such a condi
tion as 1 have described, he could
turn tho election to Cleveland or
Blaine, as he chose. There is one
other possibility. If Butler runs
with his Greenback and Labor
strength, I say that it is possible that
such a result as a tie in the electoral
college may be brought about That
Butler will run I am absolutelv cer
