The Crisis Abroad—and At Home. The financial difliculticH of the United States arid Germany arc being triumphantly adduced by Free Traders as proof of the evils of protection. They might, with equal justice, attribute the San Francisco earthquake to the Dingley tariff, or the German army scandals to the financial methods of Prince ijuelow. The truth is that neither protection nor free trade is responsible for the waning of the great industrial boom—a boom in which all manufacturing nations, and especially thonc whose industries arc protected by a tariff, have participated. It has been generally rccognix.ed that a period of depression was bound to succeed the long spell of phenomenal commercial activity which has prevailed, arid no fiscal system has been or can be invented which will prevent the recurrence of such periods. Moreover, if protection is to be blamed for the present trouble of America and Ger- manv, to what cause arc we to attribute the rising returns of unemployment and pauperism in free trade Great Britain? In Sunderland, it i» stated, there are 30,000 people without the means of obtaining food, and the distress in Uattersea and other districts of London has reached an acute stage. It may safely be left to experts to determine the causes which have led to a depression which ia likeiy to increase arid to continue for a considerate time. It is certain, however, that over-development, speculation, and" the mania for "getting rich in a hurry" H;/..,. )-.vrr,,iv h>!li!< > n<'pd the situation. _- _ - _ , »,. . ^ _• j !,» -. ( „ AAi for the notion that^protection has " itj ntiy way "aggravated" the crisis, all the evidence available tends to sljow, on the contrary, that it has had tty'e very opposite tendency, and prom- isies to assist, instead of retard, recovery in the future. But, whatever the causes of the present set-back may be, the fact remains that, under a system of high tariffs, Germany has developed from an agricultural into u great industrial nation, menacing trade in every quarter of the globe, and that the United .States has enjoyed for the last 14 years such a degree of industrial prosperity as the world ban never before «een. Great Britain has, naturally, participated to Koine extent in a prosperity which lias been world-wide, but her protected rivals have been able to secure the lion's share, and much of the business that has come her way has been due to the fact that we have been unable to cope with the orders offered tons. Free trade, so far from having contributed to Knglund's prosperity, has prevented its fuller development, for it has thrown open her markets to the competition of foreigners, who having their own secure home market, have been able to manufacture on so liirgca scale as to undersell' Knglund's own manufacturers in their own markets.

A New Jersey judge has decided Unit when n man keeps only $1 n week out of his wages his wife is not morally justified in snspeeting him of lending a double life. Our confidence in the judiciary remain* unshaken, comments the Berkeley Reporter. Asked what, boon in life she would select if she hnd the power to do so, an old lady of the city remarked that she would not choose- wealth because ot its responsibilities, she would not demand beauty because of itfi strain upon character, nor would she ask for health, glorious a gift as it, is. "I would ask," she said, "for a sunny disposition as the boon which confers more happiness upon its owner, and more happiness upon those with whom one comes into contact than any other which falls to the lot of a human creature." Governor Olllott is planning to put tho bank examiners of tho state into line so that there can bo nu repetition of Hiioh failure as that of tho California Hafo Deposit and Trust Co. of Han Francisco. The governor's idea is that the state shall be divided into several districts and that tho commissioners shall follow around in each other's districts, no one commissioner examining tho name bank twice in succession. In this way there could bo no collusion between the commissioners and tho banks, and one element of danger would thereby be eliminated. Cheap Land.
