The manufacturers of flax and Jute
goods In Scotland are Increasing their
hours of work and in "home Instances
running: overtime, so as to be In a posi
tion to supply the American market.
The Forfar Herald says there is ft
"slight rift In the black cloud of trade
depression," and alBa that ''these mer
cies are small, but they are hope-Inspiring."
The manufacturers of Jute goods
in this country have been able to secure
a few small contracta at free trade
price which are expected to rule when
the Wilson bill become a law. Here
"the black cloud of trade depression"
overhangs) the home manufacturers.
There Is no "rift" in It, and It Is not
"hope-Inspiring" for Americans.
' All there la of the setxure of the rifles
In Cincinnati, of which much haa been
said by telegraph, is, there have been
muttering that the city government
Bhould spend money not In the treasury
for doing work when there Is nothing
to do, and threat that if the mayor did
not perform the Impossible there would
h rtomrirmtrationg. It was officially as
... .. j i I
certalned that one tnousanu r.e. u
a large amount of ammunition, also
Gatllng gun, were under tne protection
of three men, and that In two Bthools
there were rifles In care of the Janitors
Tha chief of police I an old soldier who
nerved under Lieut. Phil. H. Sheridan
In the regular army, to say nothing of
the southern war, and he ha taken
care of the gun for the present.
The eulogists of the late den, Jubal
Early fwcV upon the superior numbers
of Sheridan In the valley combat, and
are guilty of absurd exaggerations. On
March 20, 1865, Early was removed by
Lee, who sold his reverse had Impaired
hla Influence. Leo added: "While my
own confidence In your ability, seal and
devotion to the cause la unimpaired, I
have nevertheless felt that I could not
oppose what seem to be the current
opinion without Injustice to your repu
tation and Injury to the service," In re
gard to the thrift of the general Mi his
luter years, a Richmond paper soys:
"The general Is supposed to be worth
between 8200.000 and $300,000. He has re
ceived over $400,000 during hi connec
tion with the Louisiana lottery."
The country Is getting acquainted
with the democratic) party." The teach
ing Is In the university of experience.
For many years democratic doctrine ha
ben copious In the newspapers, but the
discharge of public duty by democrats
has been confined to localities. In na
tional affair the republicans have had
full charge, or. in some branch of the
government, have b14 a. veto. Mr.
Cleveland, after four year cf the presi
dency, four years cf his .-.;-.:f...
nf education, doea not seem to have
brought to his second term knowledge
suitable for his guidance In the most
serious responsibilities. There has been
no public question save silver about
which he has not displayed Ignorance,
It was about tariff reform of which Mr.
Cleveland wrote some thousands of let
ters and made many speeches, and civil
service reform was also believed to
have .a prevalence In his mind. The
consular and supreme court and foreign
appointments have shown that the poets
sang of Mr. Clovelnnd as a mighty mnn
of courage and good conduct in vain. Ho
has Illustrated all the weaknesses usho-
clated with his great office.
The sliver question, In the latest and
worst form in which It has appeared,
has been put to the front, showing how
feeble the Influence of the president Is
upon his party, and the Income tax has
become an Inseparable portion of the
tariff, reformation. There is one bright
hope before the country. It is, that
there will be no tariff reform'. If the
business men of the nation could know
within a few days that the tariff law
Is to stand as- McKinley framed It,
there would be Joy In the land. The
black clouds would roll away. There Is
a chance for this "consummation, de
voutly to be wished;" and the country
takes comfort In its consideration. It is
not Improbable that the republicans
may fight the Wilson bill with the sen
ate amendments to the "bitter end, for
the democratic tariff schemes are likely
to tumble In ruins together. Such a par
tisan catastrophe would be moBt aus
picious for the nation. There Is less
than a year of this congress, and hope
dawns that It may be of eminent use
fulness In devouring Its own offspring.
The lesson of these days Is that the peo
ple must not trust the democratic par
ty, for, as the agency of any reform, It Is
a failure. It Is the bad character of the
party that has Inflicted upon the coun
try the general suffering that is an edU'
