We have reproduced details for the benefit of those who take the protective side of this question and may not be fsmilittr with all of the facts. Now If it cau be demonstrated that the beet sugar men and the men who tie engaged ju raising hii(f manufacturing aud selling, tobacco cannot be injured by the contemplated changes in the tariff audsnch change will save Cuba and put bread into mouths of her inhabitants, who have been iu a lerpetual state of starvation ever since we began to hear of them, it is obvious that the duties ou imports from this island Should be lowered at once. That is the point which many whot advocate said changes are attempting to make. They are endeavoring to prove either that there will be no Increase in Cuban competition, or that i(J there is au Increase in competition, it will put money into the pockets of our own people.

Once thut contention is made clear, and there ought to be no difficulty iu adopting measures which will relieve Cuba from distress, inasmuch as it will be equally dear that the opposition to these measures is purely sentimental. But it is passing strange that if rivalry is Hot to he feared, or if it is to be welcomed, the beet pugar men and the tobacco men, who lire supposed to be tolerably well acquainted with their own business, "are out against the tariff changes to which reference is made.

WANTS WU REMOVRD Msaohu Osnser Chsrgss Him With Corruption. PEKIN, Match 11.

The throne has beeu petitioned by a prominent Maurhn censor to remove IVu Ting Fang, Chinese minister to the United States. The censor asserts that Wu Ting Fang corruptly retained, ostensibly for repairs to the Chinese legation in Washington, $80,000 of the Tientsin silver refunded by the American government. A dispatch from Washington dated Jan. 23, stated thnt Secretary Hay had that day handed to Minister Wu a draft on the United States treasury for $376,600, the value of the silver bullion captured by American marines at Tientsin, and that, as Minister Wu is charged with the payment of salaries Of the Chinese consuls In the United States and with defraying the expenses of the Chinese iegntions iu Washington, Lima and Madrid, it was believed the money would be spplied (o these purposes. Mr.

Wu DnUs Charg. Washington, D. March 11. Wu Ting Faug, the Chinese minister, emphatically deniod last nigdit the charge that he had corruptly retained $80,000 of the $370,600, the value of tbe silver seized by American marines at Tientsin and recently returned to the Chinese government. The minister stated that the 1gioney, when delivered to him by Secretary Hay, had beeu placed at th disposal of his government, aud the Pekin authorities acknowledged its receipt by telegraph.

He thought that If a member Of the boar-l of censors had forwarded a memorial to tbe throne impugning bis honesty, he acted under misinformation. It was impossible, he said, for a rent of tbe money toUe retained, except by the express authority of the Chinese go-ferneut Considerable indignation prevails at the legation that any. one should make a charge reflecting upon the minister's Integrity. lie is oneof the most scrupulous officials in the Chinese service, and the charge Is looked npon as ridiculous.

Why Rosebery Falls. The plain truth of the matter is that Lord Rosebery is trying to prove himself the necessary tuau, aud, owing to somo defect in hia powers, he Is uot succeeding. He hus some splendid advantages, great knowedge of affairs, a Teiuurkabte power of interesting speech, clear insight into what will uot suit the nation he address au insight displayed iu his rejection alike of home rule aud of the pro-Boer policy but he lacks the administrative originality for which the nation at this moment is so thirsty, and he Will not, there fore, be able to construct au alternative government. If it is iu him, he eoneeuls it; but for ourselves, who have watched his career Without party prejudice, desir ing.only a thoroughly efficient administration, we cannot discover it, either in bis record or iu his often successful, and always Interesting, political speeches. lie criticises perfectly, but he does not build.

Loudon Economist. Delareys Victory'' In a long time no such strong British foree as Lord Methuen's has bee; defeated, aud not during the whole South African war has such a large body of the -British been so completely beaten. Kithci the Boers were in nnmbers sufficient to overwhelm them or the men under Delarcy must have fought with remarkable brnv-ery. Is it possible that the burghers outnumbered the troops under Methuen, but it seems hardly probable that they dfml 1 have been so numerous as to leave the Brit t0 8tnnd 811,1 QUi.r,.

In respect to the bravery aud the skilful fighting methods of the foree under General Delarey, it may be pointed out that equal dash aud daring characterized the Boers iu their attack nt Clerkendorp a short time ago, also uudor this commander.

The amount of money recommended for support of schools, was $5500, and John W. Gifford moved that this amount be voted. The motioiy was secohded. Then Mr. Gifford arose And said that it was well known fact thnt Westport was just training ground for school teachers, for when a teacher got to working nicely she would be engaged at a higher salary by a larger toww or city.

He woiild liketo see $230 added to the appropriation for the use of the school committee to persuade teachers in Westport when they have a better offer.

Gifford, 3d, amended the Albert 28, CUBA Protection, tion of foreign-wade goods with goods wade at home, is approved by the major ity of people in the United States. When it comes to contorting the protective tariff, as the beet sugar wen would do, into a harrier to a national policy i expansion or of adjusting the countrys relations to other American countries, in accordance with the political developuiei ts of this hemisphere, the protective tariff is made to wear new aspect, and In our opinion, a very false, unattractive and uu-deserved aspect. Cuba hns acquired a new. relation to this country, and our uew relation to Cuba includes, unquestionably, nn obligation to readjust our tariff so far as Cuba is concerned. New York Sun.

The majority of people ip the United States have approved of protection in the past and there is nothing to indicate that they have-changed their minds, Campaign ora tors. Republican and Democrats, who stumiwd the West and the Middle Wes previous to the election of Mr, McKinley agreed uheu it was all over that the issue of protectiou hud more ouTctSrethun the stand which the winning "party made for sound ruirjv-H ml hili.j;his,&jps proliiibliot the caaevvJw evidence showing that voters were tire-1 of free-trade talk and half-hearted free- trade experiments. The country bad pros pered under protection and it has since prospered under piotection, a fact which explains the indifference manifested when reciprocity is proposed. There is a tecling that it is advisable to let well enough alone. But our contempotary does not make it.

I clear that a majority of the people of the United States are iu favor of abandoning the protective tariff iu order to extern! their trade relations and Ft Is not evident that an attack should be made on two or three interests iu fuse these same relations are to be extended. The policy has been pursued heretofore hich has at forded protectiou to all of our industries and enterprises. The beet sugar uieu thus urgue aud it isnt singular that they protest against letting down the bars wlere they are concerned anti keepiug them up where their neighbors are concerned. In their opiuion, under this method of procedure, the protective tariff is made to wear a very false, unattractive and undeserved aspect." And that would be its aspect in the eyes of others if they were singled out us the victims of a departure from the protective policy. Would the cotton manufacturers rebel, or the manufacturers of iron or steel, if it were discovered that expansion or the adjusting of our relations to other American countries in accordance with the political developments of this hemisphere made it peeessary to lower the duties on products similar to theirs? They would, aud they would rebel with might and main.

They would till the lobby to overflowing with their agents. How do we know? Becnue we have seen them act when their interests were threatened under Mr. Clevelands regime. We have seen the Arthur P. Gorman bolt, and we have seen the lawyers whom the cotton corporations employed to plead in their behnlf.

lhay spent mpuey as if it grew on the trees in order to defend them- selves and nobody criticised them. Iu a word, they did exactly what the beet sugar men are doing. Cuba has acquired a new relation to this country? Cuba baa acquired no new relation to this country aud can acquiro none so long as she Insists upon her independence and is permitted to enjoy it. In so far as commercial re-' lotions are concerned, she stands on plane with England, France aud Ger-uiany. Cuba has received more nt the hands of this couutry than any other strip of territory that can be named; she has received her liberty.

There fs another Interest that is being 'attacked iu this connection, and in cora--menting upon our duties and obligations contemporary argues aa follows! claimed that a reduction In the fluty. on Cubau tobacco would increase materially the output of that island- There is absolutely nothing to prove that such would be the case. The experience of the last 200 years in Cuba has demonstrated that the land on which the best grades of tobacco can be grown is restricted, nnd cannot be increased to any considerable extent. As it is today, the trouble in Cuba is the same as the trouble iu all tobacco producing countries to a much inferior leaf is produced! and it can never pay to send this inferior tobacco to our market while there is any duty to be paid on it. At the present time leaf suitable for wrappers ranges in price from $4 to $10 per pound in Havana, nnd nowhere else in the world is wrapper leaf so expeiw as it is in Cuba.

To imagine for a I moment that this Cuban wrapper Vhicli commands such a price in Havana for wrapping Cubau cigars would flood the United States market nnd wipe out the business of the New England farmer, who makes his money from tobacco growing from the leaf suitable for wrappers, is too ridiculous to be considered. As far as the duty on Cuban cigars 1, concerned, it to doubtful if, wore the tariff reduced to the low figures, relatively 1 speakihg. of the tariff of 1883, and even if the ad valorem provision of that duty wore dropped so that there was fin rat-j of per thousand, ihe impqrts of Cuban cigars into the United States would ever amount to 5 per cent, of nridomestle consumption. On the Cuban tobacco question, therefore, it enn be said, first, that the growers of domestic wrapper never be driven out of the business by imports of wrapper tobacco hich sells for more than $4 per pound Iq Cuba; second, ns the best paying tobacco for the former to raise is wrapper, and ns wrnpper needs filler, and as the best filler comes from Cuba, increased Imports of AMD PSOTKCTIOM. hich restricts the competl- CHURCHMAN AMD CLOWN Tb Rsv.

Dr, Stirss Belisvee i Man May Bs Beth A Story to Prove It. The Rev. Ernest M. Stlres, D. the new rector of St Thomas Episcopal church, tells what one of his parishioners calls a goodi circus story; About years ago, while he was, rector of" Grace church, Chicago, ayotius man, a knelt at the altar ou Sunday morning and received communion.

After the service he called at the vestry and told Dr. Stires thnt he was a stranger; that hls.busincss was such that he seldom bad. au opportunity of attending any church service, and especially such a ser-vitav as that in which he had just participated. He doubted whether his bifiliiess was such as to warrant iiim iu receiving (he emblems. What is your business? asked the rector.

I am a clown in a cireue, I do not know why that should ev-oiude you from the altar, "Raid Dr. Stires. Ofl the contrary, 'your church affiliations should enable yon to be all the better clown if thnt is your busineys, and yon have concluded to continue it as your business in life. There is suchr thing as wholesome humor and wit. If you are going to remain a elown, employ your talents to (ievate your profession.

Do it in line with what you eouecive to be a Christian duty. You can reach a congregation which no preacher can reach. People will hear you who will not come to church. Do not let the fact that you are a clown deter you from being a churchman. You can be both, and from this time make up your mind to thnt, The story goes ou to say that the rector presented the clown vith a little book which was a translation from the Frenph, of a story of nn acrobat who became interested in the segSee-'b? knroid monastery in France.

veaerobaUeonldt not read, nor had he any voice for or knowledge 'of mnsic. He therefore could not enjoy certain privileges In the monastery, but the abbot got him a place in the scullery. One day when! the acrobat was dusting and1 cleaning np an old altar hi the crypt of the monastery on which stqod nu image of the Virgin he was overcome with the thought that he should pay the Vipgin some homage. But he did not know how to go about He remembered something about tbe lesson that one should enploy whatever talent one had to the fullest extent. He bnd but one talent that of tumbling.

Therenpon he went through his act, tumbling liefore the stntue, and he prayed that the Virgin might receive the act as Ids homage, as it wus all he knew how to do. Some of the monks who saw the acrobat before the altar were greatly amused nnd informed the abbot. It was first suggested that the acrobat be asked to (muse the monks some evening by giving ail exhibition. Before tbe appointed time, however, the abbot changed- his mind, having been warned in a dream to do so. The acrobat wna accordingly taken in' land- nnd taught to read and! chant, and bis talent wbr thus trnined 111 a direction which enabled him soon after to join the services of the monastery.

The clown carried tho little book away with him, and although he is still In the riug a jester, it is said that his sayings often spnrkle with philosophic aphorisms, and that is employing his talent in a manner which would be quite satisfactory to any bishop or rector. He is probably the onlv chnrchman flown in the country. New York Run. CHURCH LIGHTHOUSE Rsmsrksbl Fsaturs Historic Church at CharUstoa, S. O.

The only church in the world, so far as is known, that is also a lighthouse, is St. Phillips church, Charleston, says the New York Herald. St- Thilips, which is one of the oldest churches in America, is known as the Westminister Abbey of South Carolina, because, within and about its walls, so many distinguished men lie buried including John C. Calhoun, The history of the old church Is closely interwoven with that of South Carolina many of the most celebrated events in the history of the province are connected with it. It is one of the sights of Charleston, and strangers are always taken to see it, aud shown Its graves nnd monuments.

The most remarkable 'feature of the old church, however, Is the fact that Us lofty steeple serves the purpose of a and is used to gnlde the seafarer nnd mariner safely Into the port of Charleston.

THS PRIACK'S An exchange calls attention to the fact that while the cuuiera sharps have taken all kinds of impressions of Prince Henry, in all kinds of attitudes, doing all kinds of things, at all kinds of functions, nobody on this side of the water really knows what kind of au impression we have made uHu Prince Henry, aud adds that probably the only person who ill ever know is the mild-manneied, shy and retiring brother, William (or Will, as we prefer to call him), who is awaiting in Germany the Princes return. It is explained that the pictures which our. royal guest has taken with his eyes, which are, after oil, the most wonderful and natural pictures in the world, provided the vision isnt distorted, will only be developed and exposed to view in the seclusion of Will's library. This is a true observation.

We can never know what the pictures will be which Henry will show to Will; but we can hope, mid we sincerely do hope, that we have produced a most favorable impression and that the pictures will reveal us iu a flattering light. Not that we care so much about Will's opinion; nt a pinch we could worry along a few years longer, even if he were not kindly disposed- toward us. But we hope that we have produced the proper impression, because if we haveut we can never expect to make distinguished foreign visitors See us as we see ourselves iu the full glory of our perfection. That is, to resort to the -Janguuge of the small boy, we have done our very darmlest; we couldn't have done more and we never tan do more. We have put ourselves out for Prince Henrj we really have, you know, and be ought to think well of us.

We have pushed forward the flower of oiir civilisation, as it were, and have kept the benighted nnd rude and careless children iu the play room. we have set the table for company, every time the Prince hks eaten, and have employed our best cooks.

It is high time somebody made Will envious; he has a notion not only that he is the greatest that ever happened, but also thnt he -is the only tiling that ever happened.
