JUDGING from the superior merit of the Washington letters written by William Uurtle, the correBpondent.the aeries of articles on Japan, which he has gone to the Orient to prepare will be very interesting rending. CHACNCEV M. DEPEW In a recent address to students at Ann Arbor spoke of "Coin's Financial School" aa a book full of lies, illogical argu- mantfl, false premises, falso conclusions, absurdities, and taking, pictures, which, by the way, are the beat argu. monta in it." TilE New York Morning Advertiser eald recently "with Harrison- and Blalne, British occupation of Corinto would have been quite a different matter." The diah rag policy of the present administration In regard to foreign affairs Is vory unlike the policy sursuod by the Harrison administration. MAKQUIS DE CASTEIXANE, who spent two weeks In New York, In order to attend the- marriage of hla son to a daughter of the late Jay Gould, is the latest foreigner to make public hie Impressions of America. Beyond a few snobs and pampered SOPS of millionaires and their coachmen and other servants, he probably did not talk with any one on this Bide of the Atlantic. His views of the American people, however, were probably read with pleasure by big fellow members of ft decayed aristocracy. DICK CKOKKK, . the ex^Tammany chieftlan who showed his shrewdness aa a politician by retiring from the leaderahlp'of'that famous organization which Is now In a demoralized state, has been amusing himself lately by running his horses In England. Too Englishmen do not appear to like his method of racing horses any more than the American people did his method In politics, as the following cablegram from London shows: , ,The way theAmerlcane are running their horses here haa begun to arouse criticism, which promisee to Increase. It la Impossible to ascertain In advance what horses they intend to run in any event, The Sporting Times today says: "The Americans played a bold game in entering a horse like Banquet to be eold for £200. Four thousand pound* went on him, and the good thing came off In fine style. He was bought In for £760, and It is under, stood be would not hare been sold for thrice that amount." A GREAT ship canal will soon be opened by Germany. It will be known aa the Baltic ship canal and extends across the narrow neck of land con. neoting Denmark with the mainland. An exchange says: "The canal begins at Kiel, on the Baltic aea, and ends at Brunabuttel, on the Elbe. It was begun in June, 1887, and has cost upwards of $37,000,000. Ships from Bremen will be saved S22 miles and those from Hamburg 424 miles by using the canal. Ila entire length Is 53 J miles, its width 213 feet at the surface and 72-feet at the bot- Jom. Its average depth is 29} feet. This provides ample space for the easy movement of the largest vessel the German fleet. It is expected that 1,800 ships" will make use of the canal annually and hat they will represent a traffic of 7,500,000 tons and a canal toll of .18 cents per net registered ton will be collected. The canal will make navi- ation on the Baltic much, aafer SB he records show an average of two hundred Teasels per year . lost in the narrow and dangerous > channels between Sweden and Norway. The celebration on June 20 will, be a time if International rejoicing and it la expected that upwards of 25,000 gallon rom all the navie» of tke 'world will ake part. The United States will end four of her finest warthlpi to show her good will to Germany and >ur appreciation of the great work ompleted." Modern Greece and its reigning house is the subject of an entertaining paper in the Eeview of Reviews. Tile little midshipman of: .Denmark who •was in London, assisting at his sister's wedding to th"e prince of Wales thirty-two years ago. 'ind who was chosen to be the ruler of Greece, is to-day in the full vigor of his prime, and can see in sturdy eons and grandsons the promise that his kingdom is not to perish with him. JTo royal house in Europe can more safely challenge the "fierce light that beats upon the throne," for a more exemplary household than ths.t of King George it would be hard to fiad. There is -an open-air wholesomeness about them all that goes with pure blood and domestic, virtue. King George is indeed the first gentleman of Greece, but he does not hedge himself about with state. He is more likely to be met on a swinging 1 walk than in £i carriage; and when he catches a brute beating a child in the slums of his capital he is not above stopping to do a little cudgeling on his own account. Of the queen, not even . mnlice could lisp a syllabic in dispraise. She is a beautiful woman, of commanding presence, every inch a queen, and allies the royal family of Greece fo that of Russia. In 1SS9, when Crown Prince Constantino was married to Prince Sophia of Prussia, there -was in Athens one of the most unique gatherings of royalty ever loiown. In the- homely Byzantine cathedral during the long wedding ceremony, which took two hour;:, were Sophia's mother, the dowager empress of Germany, and her brother, Emperor William, and his wife; the present czar of Russia, the cousin of Queec Olga of Greece, and the nephew of Jung Gcorg-e; King- George's sinter, the princess of Wales and her bus band, and King George's mother and father, the king and queen of Denmark. So one . organize a demoralize!! party and it to victorv. Senator'HUl is a man ol considerably more political sense and influence, but ho was terribly beaten in his own state last year, and" that haa taken away his prestige. Senator Gorman is a skillful manipulator within certain limits, but his capacity is not equal to the present emergency. And 50 it is as to all the rest, of those from among whom a leader must be chosen if the party is to .have one. They are leaders oniy in a restricied«.ndinferior sense. The gift of solving large and difficult problems; of concentrating random energies, of inspiring party activity and determination, does not belong to them. They are all sadly defective in essential respects. The party is dissevered and bewildered for want of a man with sufficient wisdom to put it in the way of overcoming its misfortunes and, regaining its potentiality as a factor in politics. It is without a leader, that is to say, and a party without a leader is a party that has nothing to expect but defeat.—St. Louis Globe- Democrat. THE TREASURY DEFICIT. Democratic KINO GEOROIS OF GREECE, can readily see that little Greece does, not lack for rich relatives. Tho crown prince is ftie happy father of two little boys, so the succession is fully secured. Prince George of Greece is a happy young fellow, and is well kno^Ti to the world through his exciting adventure •with an assassin in Japan some time ago. Princess Marie forms another member of the royal family. Her elder sister, Alexandra, died recently. Excitement attends political life in Greece, as the average. life ol! a ministry is little more than ten .months. Of King George's reign,' it can be said that in tho face of great odds it ; has been wise and beneficial.. Hei wonld not claim the character of a statesman king, but he possesses preeminently the "level head" aad unfailing .tact. As cool as tho Greeks are hot, be .has gone in and out among thorn asi a master moderator—a sane and steadying influence; and hia,tiniqueTelations have put in his' hands a diplomatic; power which has'been of supreme consequence to his people. '•: With a population of hardly 2,500,000,, Greece has a debt of «104,000,,000, or about $5*5 per capita. Complete Failure of tht •' onue Scheme. Secretary Carlisle will live to rue the day when he made his notorious prophecy that the treasury deficit would be reduced to 520,000,000 by the end of the liscal year, and that even this woxild be wiped oat before congress met again, .^oboch- thought at the time that lie himself believed the statement, or that it was made with anv other purpose than to deter congress from modifying- the democratic- populist tariff programme. The prophecies which placed the yield from the income tax at 850,000,000, with an absolute minimum oi 330,000,000, were part and parcel of the same scheme of deception. Now that the returns for this tax are all in, the commissioner of internal revenue at Washington admits that the maximum yield of revenue from the income tax has dwindled to 810.000,000, / with the possibility that whan the collecting is all done it will fall to a minimum oi 55,000,000. Tims, supposing- that the bis yields the top figure,, 510,000,000, there is still a gap of 820,000,000 deficit between this and the minimum previously estimated, and it becomes necessary to add at least this sum to Secretary Carlisle's estimated deficit. The democratic revenue scheme has also failed'uo less signally in other re- 'spects, and the prospect is that the deficit at the close of the fiscal year will be considerably over ?r»0,000,000. It is true that the decision of the supreme court has had much to do with this enormous shrinkage. But granting that it has cut down the revenue from this source one-half. Secretary Carlisle's predicted receipts were still double what he _had good reason to know they would actually be.' And, as if to make his disgrace the more complete, the revenue from the sugar duty has also fallen nearly 50 per cent, below the estimated receipts. The combined result of these two facts and of the general falling- oil in importations on account of the hard times is to leave T fhe treasury in a condition of collapse 'from which it can bo rescued only by the continued issue of bonds until such time as a republican legislative body .can undo, the'deplorable work of the Ffty-third congress. •-' In view of this state of affairs, the ••action of the late congress in refusing ,to make an}' provision for the issue of low-interest bonds, such as President Cleveland adcocated, becomes doubly reprehensible.—Chicago Journal. THE STATE OF BUSINESS. WITHOUT A LEADER. The Democratic Party W»ndc;rlnjr Io Gloomy Uncertainty. : . There is manifest force in the declaration of a prominent statesman tbat tho supreme misfortune of the democratic party at the present time is the wantof a leader. The members of the organization are like an army that has lost its commander and scattered in all directions for lack of a master spirit to unite the various fragments and make them practically effective. In iJie nature of things. President Cleveland should be his party's leader, but he is not recognized as such. On the contrary, he is' regarded by the majority of democratic voters as a man who has abandoned the principles upon which he was elected and forfeited his claims to confidence and support. He is strong with n certain eiement : of the party, but it is not the elemen'5 thai counts for most at the ballot bo::; Almost all of the conspicuous democrats of the country aro ag-ainst him far one reason and another, and he gets! more praise from republican than from democratic newspapers. It is obviously impossible for trim to bring about coherence and harmony La the broken ranks of his party. He is more of a disturber than a coalescer, so to (ipeak; and every step that he takes tc:ads tc increase the discord and uncertainty. In all tho list of other well-known democrats who might be supposed to possess qualities of leadership, there is not one who merit* serious'': consuderar tion. The fact that Vice ; President Stevenson is put forward in-this .relation goes to show the disconragiiiig nature of the outlook. He ; represents nothing more than respectable mediocrity, and has nerer done "any thing to.iu»tify a bejlcf .in bis «Wlitr to. re? 1 Some Improvement Since tho Democratic Defeat. ..It is too much to expect that those who care more for theirprivate opinion orior their profit in importing than for the good of the country and tho happiness of fellow-beings will be led, even by the qvents of the last three years, to give up .their worship of free- trade theories- But there are millions in this country who have only accepted such theories because they were taught by respected college professors or by favored political leaders, and these millions aro learning fast from experience. It ia to them that the story of enlarged importations and reduced wages and manufacturing products comes with convincing power. That free traders feel this is confessed oy their eager citation of every advance of wages at a single establishment, and every resumption or increase of work, as if by isolated instances they could disprove the personal experience of the working millions. Let it be distinctly understood, once for all, that these facts aro neither denied nor overlooked nor deprecated by any sensible American. They only prove that the tariff of 1894. which was as disgracefully defective as it was infamously dishonest, according to the president and other democratic leaders, fails to accomplish as much as its advocates expected. . The avowed purpose was to stop the defense and support of home industries by d,uties on imports. If at any point tho duties are left so high that they afford full protection to the home industry ag-ainst foreign competition the democratic congress at that point was false to democratic principles and corruptly favored monopolies. The country lias to. learn oy costly and somewhat prolonged experience how far and in what cases this is the fact; and if it should turn .out that the duties remaining are at every point high enough ' to protect home industries and enable them to bear foreign competition without reducing wages, the result would only prove. • that the duties are .not what' the people were promised, but aVe base betrayals ol democratic principles s and pledges, cor- riiptly granted to monopolies in return for.shares in .the profits of sugar and whisky, speculation. But everybody is learning that this-is hot the truth, as respects many of the industries. •;-'fa a .good -.many. establishments wages have been advanced; that is. Highest of all in Leueofag Pbwct— Lttwt XT. 8. GOT* Report .1 71 Powder ABSOLUTELY PURE part of. the reduction maae in preparation for a democratic tariff has been rescinded. Where twenty or twenty- five per cent was taken off in many cases ten per cent- lias now been restored. When it is found that particular industries, arc in no way affected by the new tariff or enjoy all the protection they formerly had the old wages have in some cases been restored. But the fact remains that a large proportion of the workers are now receiving- lower wages than they received in 1S92, and they know both. the fact and the cause. A g-ood many establishments which stopped while a democratic tariff was in preparation have now resumed. wholly or in part. This also is gladdening. The fact remains that many have been wholly idle for two years, and many more have as yet been able to resume only with part of their forco or working part time- This also the workers know by their own experience, and the cause. Day by day, as the extent of foreig-n competition and the effect of new duties come to be more correctly measured, sorno concerns aro increasing- force or resuming-, while others in different branches are reducing force or suspending' work, and while it must be months before the full elTect of tl«i competition on new terms can be realized, every enlargement of opportunity for American labor will be hailed with joy, as a gain for the country and an additional victory over a blundering democratic tariff. At this date the banking- returns show that actual business is -'0.2 per cent, smaller than it was early in April two years ag;o, before the breakdown came, and a largely increased part of that diminished business is due to the marketing 1 of foreign products, of which in •February the imports in many leading- branches were twice as large as in 1893. This necessarily involves^ decrease greater than the average in the volume of trade resulting- from tho marketing- of domestic products.—X. Y. Tribune. COMMENT AND OPINION. £3g~Dear meat is in part caused by the wholesale reduction in sheep and the supply of mutton, through the working'of a democratic free wool tariff.—Philadelphia Press. C3f" The democratic party is after all in a pretty happy condition as far as politics goes. They can't be made worse off no matter what happens. They are likely to be "the third party" in the next contest.—Chicago Inter Ocean. C3flt is possibly a mere coincidence, but a peculiar one, that whenever the democratic managers look over the 'field and discover that they have no earthly chance of electing their candidate they always begin to talk about nominating "some g-ood southern man" for president. That is what they are doing- now.—N. Y. Tribune. CST'A great many democrats arc retiring from politics; cithers are simply becoming- "independent" or "nonpartisan." These are men who have to acknowledge that their party has made a failure, but arc still unwilling to acknowledge that they ought to be republicans. Simply . because their party has failed is no reason why democrats should expect all of us to become mugwumps. —Iowa State Register. CdS"Since the supreme court of the land has declared the income tax law to be unconstitutional, there will probably be little dispute over the proposition that the national revenues should be derived from customs duties. Such being the case, it seems obviously wise that the tariff should be so adjusted as to protect the American workman in the enjoyment of wages suitable to the American mode of living.—H. EL Eohl- saat, in Chicago Times-Herald. END OF THE VOYAGE. Celebrated on Board Ship with Mneh Pomp «od Ceremony. A woman who lately crossed to Europe for the first time writes home of the pleasant pomp and ceremony with which the end of the voyage is celebrated on the last night out. "It seems," she says, "that it is always customary, on the German line, at least, and probably on all, to have an especially elaborate dinner just before arriving- in Southampton, which is called the 'captain's' dinner. Every one is supposed to order wine and drink to the health of the captain, while be responds, toasting- the health and safe journey-ings of his passeng-ers. When we came to the table we found it decorated with most elaborate cakes four stories high, with little American, and German flags stuck on all sides, and little paper ornaments—truly German. "VVe went through a most elaborate menu, and when we came to dessert, the waiters suddenly disappeared, the music stopped and the lights went out. A hush and sense of expectancy fell upon the company. Suddenly the music started a lively march, the doors opened and the waiters appeared, bearing trays. On each was a round globe of rice paper with a light inside, and around this sat^mall Japanese figures made.of ice cream, each holding io his arms a little umbrella of light-colored paper. The room was perfectly dark, and the effect as the waiters marched around and around, forming different figures and bearing their iQnroinated burdens, was novel and interesting. Everybody clapped and cheered- Then the lights were turned on and we ate the ice-cream men and kept the um- brellas as souvenirs. It was a captain"* dinner, though without a capt-iia, for we chiuiced to be passing- at j.he time through a very dangerous place, and lie could not leave his post on the bridge." THE TRIPLE SOMERSAULT. It I« tb« Mont Difficult of All Acrobatic Font*. The most difficult acrobatic feat In the world is to throw a triple somersault. The double is comparatively easy; but to describe throe complete circles in the air with the body is a big-ger feat than tho most expert acrobat of to-day cares to undertake. Only three men have as yet accomplished it, although dozens have lost their lives in making the attempt. To perform a triple somersault 0110 would, of course, have to jump from :i spring board high" enough to be :iblo to turn throe times before alighting-, and probably no gvmnast has sufficient power to leap higher than is necessary to accomplish a double somersault, suys an exchange. The height, is not the only trouble. If it were Itfaprng vxpv:rt», by improved appliances and practice, would overcome, that difliinilty. lint after tho body has turned twice tho performer loses control of it :Uid the I:LW of gravitation overcomes houily dexterity. Uis hcS-d being- houvio.r than his foot, he is apt to alight on it lirst and break his neck. Ono of the three acrobats who have already accomplished tho great foat refused to try it again, being assured that his alighting on his feet was an accident, .-us he could not control his body after turning tho second time. Another undertook the featfor u wager of one hundred dollars. In tho llrst attempt he turned threo •times, but alighted on his hands. Everybody was satisfied with the result and the money WAS tendered him. He proudly refused it, saying that tho feat had not bocn perfectly accomplished, and that he would repeat it and alight upon his feet before ho folt justified in taking the one hundred dollars. He did attempt to repeat it, but fell on hi» head, dislocating his neck. A MISFIT LIKENESS. The niltoH»n'« F»oe WM « Uard One t» C»rT*. James Anthony Froudc had a striking face, but 'it was evidently ono which lent itself ill to sculpture. Mrs. Ireland gives in the Contemporary Review an amusing instance of a "misfit likeness" of it. Mrs. Ireland was at his house, and after dinner she and Mr. Froude were just adjourning to tho library, when he stopped a moment, and pointed out a bust on a bookcase, tho center of three fullsized and dignified representations in marble. "I must not forget," he said, "to show you the very latest adcKtion to my treasures. What do you think of it?" I looked up, and with my head full of the galleries and museums I had been '-visiting answered: "It's a very terrible head and most repellent." "Yes," he said, "I agree with you. Now who should you say it is?" Ignorant about these things, I answered vaguely: "Nero, perhaps, or one of the old Corgias." Mr. Froude laughed. "Try again," ho said, "you ought to know it." "It is a horrid looking thing" said I, "whoever it is!" "Atrocious!" said Mr. Froude, em-. phatically. "Is it not? Well, I'm sorry to say it is a bust of myself, just presented to me by Sir Edgar Bochm. Very kind of him, wasn't it? And now of course, I havo to stick it up here in a very prominent place, and show it to* all my friends. Pleasant, isn't it?" "Bochm doesn't see you with my eyes," said L "It doesn't remind mo of vou in the least." He laughed heartily. "That's well!" said he. "I didnt think I was quite such a rnfflan as that!" ' ' " . A F»n>llJ of A New Yorker sitting on the edge of a small Adirondack lake was at-- tracted by a school of tiny fish that seemed io move in remarkable union. ; Watching for a long time he'discovered that the infant fish were guarded by ' the parents, for whenever .the young t began to stray they were driven back . into the school by a large fish on-one , side or the other, and • whenever a ' strange fish approached, . ono of the ^ guardians rushed at hinj and drove him off. The watcher noted the move- « meats of several small schools for two hours, and vows that the little crea- jj tares were tended like a drove of sh«ep.
