Grove:' Cleveland accepts. It cannot be said that there was any great commotion occasioned by this determination or that a long and wearing suspense had been ended. His letter Bl acceptance was given to the public Monday. It has been three months since he was nominated at Chicago and tho delay is not explained by anything in the letter though it doas give the appearance of having bankrupted several dictionairiea in its construction. Clearly the delay was for the purpose of watching public sentiment. Had the Chicago platform been, received with unanimous approval Cleveland's letter would have been louder than the platform in advocating free trade, but with, the Almost universal disapproval of that- platform in . the JTorih, Cleveland's letter shows a.subdued and reflective mood, an innocence assumed for the occasion and a protestation of patriotism and lave for the soldier- inconsistent with the previous utterances. and record of the ex-president. The letter shows a trimming of sails to catch the October breezes. On no subject is this more noticeable than in the discussion of the tariff question. Cleveland says: We wage no exterminating war against any American interests. Vte believe a readjustment can be accomplished, in accordance, with the. principles we profess, without disaster or demolition. And in another place: -We will rely upon Ike intelligence of our fellow covntrymcn to reject the charge that a party comprising a majority of our people is planning the destruction or injury of American interests; and we know they cannot be frightened by the spectre of impossible free trade. If this means anything it, means assurance of protection to American industries. Grover Cleveland knows that there were no tin plate mills in this country prior to the passage of the McKinley bill. He knows that there are now 46 of these mills, and that the output last year was 20,000,000 pounds. He knows that tin plate is cheaper than it was before the passage of the McKinley bill. Knowing these things and that, tho present Democratic Congress passed a bill to put tin plate on the free list, and that the national platform de- cla-es protection a fraud and unconstitutional Grover Cleveland attempts to assure workingmen that the destruction promised by the National Democratic Convention shall not go on. And then he hides behind an ambiguity and says: Tariff reform is still our purpose. The McKinley bill is tariff reform, the Merrill bill was tariff reform, -the compromise of 1883 was tariff reform, free trade is tariff reform. This expression has been a favorite one with the ex-President because he knows that all the different opinions in his own party have found comfort in its many sided character It means anything that any man may want it to mean. And then to get within hailing distance of the Chicago platform Grover Cleveland sajs tariff revenues " are only justifiable when laid and collected for the purpose of maintaining our government, and furnishing the means for the accomplishment of its legitimate purposes and functions. This is taxation under the operation of a tariff for revenue." Here, in contradiction of his promises of protection, the democratic candidate advocates a tariff for revenue only. There is no pronouncing protection a fraud and declaring it unconstitutional asin the bold and manly, though mistaken, words of the Watterson plank. There is no clearness on the tariff. It is the same old evasive Grover who because the mugwumps supported him imagined himse'.f great. But Grover is not the Democratic party though it is clear that he thinks he is. The Southern States control and will continue by the superiority oi numbers. A Democratic congress passed the free tin bill. It elected an ex-rebel to the speakership. The Democratic party adopted the Chicago platform. This party must be taken at its word and the American people will not permit Grover Cleveland as a candidate of that party to run on one platform while his party runs him ou another. From tho politicians standpoint Grover Cleveland has done rather an admirable bit of dodging. With several long and irrevalent sentences he has covered up the inconsistencies of his letter and by words long enough to have been used for his collars he succeeds in enveloping himself in uncertainty. No one can compare the strong, frank utterances of the mistaken Watterson with the inconsistencies of Grover Cleveland without arriving at the cbnclusion that the latter is more desirous of Grover Cleveland's election than of stating his real views if he has any. HG-STMARES. THEY ARE TROUBLING THE DEMOCRATIC LEADERS NIGHTLY. The Issues Tfhich the Platform. Offers Are Proving Troublesome—The Voters : . Are Pleasoii with Present Conditions and Can't "Co Persuaded to Change. [Special Correspondence.] SEW Yor.±, Sept. 19.—The evidences of Democratic alarm over the political situation continue to make themselves apparent. The frequent conferences between Mr. Cleveland and the varions members of the committee which, is trying to rtm the campaign indicate •great anxiety:. And there seems little 'season to believe tha,t the developments have been very satisfactory. The nightmare of free trade, wildcat currency, pension vetoes and other peculiarities of the Dem ocratic platf oiim seems to disturb them. With Democrats at every hand denouncing the free trade plank of the platform, English newspapers expressing a hope of Democratic isuccess, leaders of the Farmers' Alliance denouncing the •wildcat money scheme which is made a prominent part of the party's principles, old soldiers getting ready to avenge Mr. Cleveland's treatment of their comrades, and a bitter fight continuing to rage between the two factions of the party here, the chances for Democratic success seem to be exceedingly slim. Harmony That Doesn't Count. There is a good deal of disappointment among Democrats over the evident failure of the attempt at harmony which Mr. Cleveland and Mr. Dickinson put up. The more the matter is studied the more evident it appears that the attempt v, - as unsuccessful. The attack made by the national committee upon Labor Commissioner Peck within a few hours of the time of Mr. Cleveland's dinner to certain of the Hill following seems to have upset any prospects of harmony that may have been hoped for as a result of that dinner. Commissioner Peck is a close friend of Senator Hill, and as such the attack, made upon him by the national committee is naturally, and quite properly, resented by Senator Hill's friends generally. In a Pock of Trouble. The efforts of the Democratic national committee to discredit and generally tear to pieces Commissioner Peck's re- •rno "SICK uieveiana runtt" is a aesaraii- ure. With a hundred or two btmdred newspapers all over the country clamoring for subscriptions, the- total, aside from the amount subscribed by three or foar newspapers which expected to get an advertisement out of the scheme, is a mere trifle, and shows that the people are taking no interest and have no confidence in the claim that it is possible to carry any western state. English Support the Democrats. Another circumstance which hag- depressed Democratic stock materially is the arrival of a number of English newspapers complaining bitterly of the injury being done to Englishmarkets and manufactures by the McKinley tariff : and its accompanying feature of reciprocity. These statements show that the : British manufacturers and exporters are already conceding heavy losses in their business with other countries by' reason of the new American tariff. The reciprocity feature of the tariff is distressing them greatly. The fact that the United States is able to send its goods free of duty into countries where British goods have been going in great quantities under a heavy tariff payment; is damaging their trade very greatly and proportionately improving that of the United States. Itepulilicitns Cheerful and Confident. On the other hand the Republicans are in excellent shape. There is perfect harmony in their ranks, the business people and the masses find themselves well satisfied with the prosperity which the Republican tariff and a Republican system of finances has brought, and there are accessions to the ranks of the party from every direction; not only from those who were formerly in the Democratic party, but from the intelligent young voters who are this time to cast their first ballot, SOME'OF THE REASONS Highest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Why You Should Vote Against Cleveland Explained. ! First—When it came to a vigorous as- I sertion pf our rights in Behring sea un-' | der his administration, Mr. Cleveland I dropped humbly on his knees before the I British lion. ! Second—Because if you are an artisan i the economic policy he is pledged to carry out, the policy to which his party has committed itself, will bring you to the ragged condition of the British free trade mechanics. Third—How can you vote for a double action presidential combination like Cleveland and Stevenson? The team does not pull together. One is plowing in the political furrow of tariff reform, civil service and gold, while the other is TARIFF BICKERS. THE BRITISHERS AND DEMOCRATS KICK IN UNISON. Equally Opposed to Our Protective System—What Iho English Manufacturers and Newspapers Are Sayins—Openly Opposed to Our Tariff. There can 110 longer be any doubt that the British free traders are not only very much displeased with our protective tariff policy, but are anxious for Democratic success in the coming election in order to see the tariff destroyed. One of the most striking evidences of this is found in a collection of clippings from British newspapers and trade journals which Hon." A. C. Bowen, of Denver, made while spending a few weeks in England. They show the- greatest bitterness on tho part of the manufacturers, who say that the American tariff, tinder the McKinley law and its reciprocity features, is absolutely destroying British commerce iu tho countries where they have been fostering trade by large expenditures for years. The British journals make no secret of their hope for Democratic success. The London Times says: "Englishmen can feel little sympathy for either of the parties engaged in this ignoble struggle, but undoubtedly our interests as a trading country must make us wish success to the Democrats, who now, for the first time, go to the polls as the avowed champions of free trade." Commenting on the advantages which onr reciprocity treaties give American commc: -v over that from Great Britain, The Colliery Guardian, a very influential British industrial journal, coui- ju our traae wun man country, xne hardship of that treatment to our manufacturers cannot be denied, for whatever development there has been in the- industries and commerce of that conn- ti-y has been in great part brought p.bout by English aid; British, capital has been found to construct the railways and other public works, and pri- rate undertakings have been exten sively assisted out of English pockets. "If therefore any nation had a right -to have its goods received in Brazil on the most favorable terras it was the' British and not the United States, which' has done nothing to foster the development of tho country, and tiil the new treaty was signed charged heavy duties on all Brazilian products imported to- its shores, whereas for years we have 1 evied no—or at acy rate very small—duties. Tho people of the United States- are now therefore reaping where we have- 1 sown, :ind our government, which has been appealed to by tho chambers of commerce and various trading bodies, appears to bo unable to obtain for us better treatment. "Another instance of this new policy is their treaty with Cuba and Porto Rico. It will be almost impossible for our pro- ' ducers to compete against those of the- United States iu the Spanish West India [ islands, and the hardware jnanufactur-. ers of tho midlands, in endeavoring to- get our foreign office to move in this matter, have represented thattheir-busi- ness with those islands—which is not ai all inconsiderable—will be practically- annihilated." 1 hftvo arrived ut the iigo of folly threescore und 1mvo l>ccn a lifelong Democrat, but I iu» folly satisfied that Cleveland is not tlio friend of tlio soldier*' and should not receivu our support.— •Senerul E.

It is evident that they are hard hit. Word comes from all the state and all over the United States that it is proving a very damaging thing for the Democrats, and is evidence out of the months of their own party of the fallacy of their free trade theories. The utmost efforts -which they have made to discredit it or lessen its effects have been unsuccessful. The TVildcat Currency Troubles Them. Another feature • of the campaign •which is giving the Democrats a good deal of anxiety is the prominence of thnt feature of their platform relating to a repeal of ihe tax on state bank notes, with the purpose of returning to the wildcat currency of antebellum times. This proposition is condemned by all classes of citizens. There is not a man found •willing to open, his month in its favor, and people are no~w wondering how it is that it -was ever put into the platform. The explanation is found in the frantic attempt -which the authors of the platform vrere making to satisfy in some -way the demand of the south and west for ' 'more rnocey." As they -were unable to -put free .silver into the platform upon •which, they -were to put Mr^Cleveland .<is a candidate, they felt in duty bound to do something else to placate = that element demanding ."more money," and so prevent it from going over to the third party. Hence it was that the repeal of the tax on state banks was proposed, ft •was simply a tub thrown to the "more inoney"-whale, but it promises: to prove very disastrous to the people who threw it.. Witb. the • president of the Farmers' Alliance, of ^?evr York protesting sgainst this proposition as oae which would bring disaster to ths cormtry generally and to farmers in particular, the leaders of the party begin to see plainly that they have inadc a mess of it in this particular and wish that. tia> wildcat scheme was out of their platform.

It says frankly that the protective policy which the Eepublican party has fostered aud the Democrats opposed has not only made the United States a large producer, but with the additional leverage of reciprocity is forcing our products into the countries where the English have heretofore had their own way. On this subject it says of the Republicans and their policy: I -'Their effort is to obtain the monop- j'oly of the trade of the New World, and thev are so influencing some of the countries that produce from, the United States is being admitted duty free, whereas the goods of other nations have to pay heavy duties. The McKinley tariff affords an excellent bargaining power when negotiating trade treatie« which we in Fcgland cannot possess, seeing that in return for any concession? they might make we could give rhei;: ^nothing, because we already admit duty free almost everything- we import. •'Last year, it will be remembered, we. had one prominent example of this newly inaugv-rated policy of the United St.-ites in the case of its treaty with that large and interesting market, Brazil, which, placed 113::: a Kreat disadvantage Powder: I vrish to oxprcm my thanks for tho benefit I have derived from using CDTIODBA KBMKOIES.
