, AN EXPLANATION.
As IS doubtless well known to most
patrons of The Astorlan residing within
the city of Its publication, but not so
generally understood on the outside, the
ollice and publishing department of the
paper have been heretofore separated
from the composing and press room by
more than a mile of distance; the two
departments being In different build
ings, located ut opposite ends of the
city. With the view of Improving the
paper and making it a hetlor-thnn ever
news and advertising medium to Us
patrons, the proprietor determined some
time ago to combine all departments of
the paper under one root, and to this
end new and extensive Improvements
to The Astorlan building have been In
progress for some weeks past. Since the
Inst Issue of the paper the change has
been effected, but bo great was the labor
(Involving among other things the sub
stitution of electric for steam power),
and (ha working time so limited, that It
hits been found Impossible to avoid some
slight abbreviation In the size of the
paper nt thlH Issue, Before the next
publication everything will be complete
ly adjusted, and ample atonement will
be made for the present shortcoming by
nn Improved paper in the future.
Judge Miller's sentence In the case of
Coxey and his co-defendnnte yesterday
Is opt to have the opposite cifect to
that Intended. The danger In Coxeylsm
nil along has not consisted In the move
ments of the so-called army Itself, so
much as the liability to the excitement
of a morbid and sentimental sympathy
for the- man and his followers In the
minds of the general public by a mis
taken course In dealing with them. The
offense was only a misdemeanor at
most, and It would seem that the impo
RlUon of a small fine should have satis
fied the ends of Justice, vindicated the
law, and operated as an ample deterrent
of offenses of like nature In the future.
Nobody believes for a moment that
Coxey was actuated by any criminal
Intent or- motive, although It Is true, ns
Senator Sherman bos said, he probably
knew he was committing a technical of-
fense when he went to the capltol, yet
he had been thoroughly pursuaded by
bad advisers that he had a perfect right
to go there with the Innocent object In
view. This dot not relieve his guilt, to
be sure, but It Is certainly a circum
stance In mitigation. It will ai.pcur to
most people that an effort has been
made not simply to- punish him, but
also, and unnecessarily, to humiliate
him as well. On the first charge he Is
sentenced to Imprisonment In the DlS'
trict workhouse, without the alternative
of paying a fine, and on the second
rhargo there Is too great a disparity in
the amount of line Imposed and the
term of alternative Imprisonment
namely, $500 or ten days. It Is evident
the sentences are oppressive, and out
of proportion to, the real gravamen of
tha offences committed. The appellate
court, on the testimony in the case, will
doubtless modify both sentences; but
this cannot with certainty be foretold.
In the meantime there is likelihood of
ol fresh revival of the agitation, and
that, too, by some recruits to the army
not heretofore Identified with the craze.
POLITICAL POINTERS FOR ORE
(In his seventh annual message to con
gress.) "Our agriculture, commerce and man
ufactures prosper beyjnd example (un
der the tariff of 1789). Every part of the
union displays Indications of rapid and
various Improvement, and with burdens
! so light as scarcely to be perceived. Is
It too much to say that our country ex
hibits a spectacle of national happiness
never surpassed, If ever before equal
ed?" (In his eighth and last met sage.)
"Congress hna repeatedly and hot
without success, directed their attention
K the encouragement of manufactures,
The object Is of too much consequence
not to Insure a continuance of their ef-
forts In every way which shall appear
(In ids last annual message to congress.)
"I observe, with much satisfaction,
that the product of the revenue during
the present year has been more consld'
erable than during any former period,
"This rwult affords conclusive evi
dence of the great resources of the
country, and of the wisdom and em
elenc-y of the measures which have been
adopted by congress for the protection
of commerce and preservation of the
(In his sixth annual message thus pre.
sents his views to the country as to
thu best method of disposing of the
"Shall we suppress the imposts (du
ties) and give that advantage to foreign
over our domestic manufactures? On a
few articles of more general and neces
Fury use the suppression In due season
will doubtless be right, but the great
mass of the article on which Imposts are
laid are foreign luxuries purchased by
those only who are rich enough to af
ford themselves the use of them."
Again he wrote:
"Th? general Inquiry now Is, Shall we
make our own comforts or go without
them at the will of a foreign nation?
He, therefore, who Is now against do,
mestlc manufactures must be for reduc
Ing us either to a dependence upon that
nation or to be clothed In skins and live
like beasts In caves and dens. 1 am
proud to say I am not one of these. Ex
pert -nee has taught me that manufac
lures are now as necessary to our Inde
pendence as to our comforts."
"Tho prohibiting duties we lay on all
articles of foreign manufacture, which
prudence require I us to establish at
home, with the patriotic determination
of every good citizen to use no foreign
article which can be mude within our
selves, without regard to difference of
price, secures us against a relapse Into
foreign dependency." .
In his letter to Humphrey, 1809, he
"My own Idea is that wo should en
courage home manufactures to the ex
tent of our own consumption of every.
thing of which we raise the raw mate.
(in his special message to congress.
February 20, 1815.)
"There Is no subject that can enter
with greater force and merit Into the
deliberations of congress than a consld
oration of the means to preserve and
promote the manufactures which have
sprung Into existence and obtained an
unparalleled maturity throughout the
Unlvd States, This source of national
Independence and wealth I anxiously
recommend, therefore, to the prompt
and constant guardianship of congress,"
(In inaugural address.)
"Our manufactures will likewise re
quire the systemmatle and fostering
cars of the government. Possessing, as
we do, all the raw materials the fruit
of our own Ml and industry, we ought
not lo depend, in the degree we have
done, on supplies from other countries.
Equally Important Is It to provide at
home a market for our rkw materials,
as by extending the competition It
will enhance the price and protect the
cultivator against the casualties Inci
dent to foreign markets."
(In his seventh annual message to con
gress.) "Having formerly communicated my
views to congress respecting the encour
agement which ought to be given to our
manufacturer, and the principle on
which It should be founded, I have only
to add that those views remain un
changed. I recommend a review of the
tariff for the purpose of affording such
additional protection to those articles
which we are prepared to manufacture,
or which are more Immediately con
nected with the deferse and Indepen
dence of the country."
JAMES O. BLAINE. ''.
(In a public address in 1886.)
"I love my country and countrymen.
I am an American, and I rejoice every
day of my life that I am. I enjoy tho
general prosperity of my , country, and
know that the worklngman of this land
are the best paid, the best fed, and tho
best clothed of any laborers on the face
of the earth. Many of them have homes
of their own. They are surrounded by
all the comforts and many of the lux
uries of life. I shudder, however, ut the
thought that the time must come when
all this will be changed, when the gen
eral prosperity of the country will be
destroyed, when, the great body of
worklngmen In this land, who are now
so prosperous, will hear their' wives and
children cry for bread; that, tho day
must came when the great , factories
and manufactories of this land will shut
down, and where there is now life and
activity there will be the silence of the
tomb. And the reason why this must be
"The great southern wing of the
Democratic party are determined lo es
tablish the doctrine of free trade in
this land. They will be assisted by
their northern allies. The fight Is now
on. There Is a great body of visionary
but educated men who are employed
day by day In writing free-trade essays
and arguments In favor of thot doc
trine, wheh find their way Into every
newspaper In this land. The great body
of our people have never experienced
themselves the sufferings which always
result when the protective principles
are laid aside. Poisoned and excited by
the wild statements of these writers
and the demagogic appeals of Demo
cratic speakers, the result will be that
In the very near future these forces
which are now working, will be strong
enough to defeat at the polls the party
advocating the doctrine of protection.
"It must Inevitably follow that uncer-
tainty and doubt will ensue. The busi
ness men of the country, fearing the
destruction of the principle of protec
tion, will decline to engage In business,
consequently mills will shut down and
the worklngmen will be thrown out of
employment. The people will then see,
as they have never seen before, that
they cannot be prosperous and have
work while this principle Is threatened.
In the midst of their suffering they will
learn that the only way they can be
prosperous and happy Is to vote for the
party that has built up the Industries
by which they have gained a livelihood,
because they will then see clearly that
when the manufactory Is shut down
there is no demand for the only thing
which they have to sell, and that is
