It usually requires on emergency to arouse the American people to action and the visitation of cholera has exposed to us the inefficiency of our means of self-preservation. As a result of the conflict of authority between nation and state in New York harbor the pleasing assurance comes from Washington that a national quarantine established by federal legislation will propably be one of the leading recommendations of President Harrison hi Ids message to congress in December. The recent experience of the federal officials with the quarantine system r.s enforced, by (the various states has led to the conclusion that there ought to be a uniform national system of protecting the country from pestilence. This would prevent all conflicts between state and federal authorities, and would make it certain that whatever precautions were taken CONDENSED NEWS. Apaches in Arizona take the warpath.

Tlioro is no question that congress has the; power to regulate immigration, whether the power is derived from .the authority to regulate commerce or .from the famous slavery clause which provides that tho "migration or Importation of such persons as any of (lie states now existing shall think proper to admit shall not be prohibited by congress prior to the year one. thousand eight hundred and eight." The absolute prohibition of Immigration in times of danger will probably lie; placed in the; hands of the president if any law is enacted, and this will be strictly within tlie constitutional authority of congress. If doubt arises as to llto power of congress to exclude the states from the exercise of quarantine powers, it may still bo found proper to establish some; federal regulations and to provide; Unit they shall have; •full force;, subject to the laws of tho states. Any action that Uie federal gem v rn- niunt may tako will undoubtedly meet with tho hearty approval of the American people; who repe>se: tho greatest trust in the; wisdom and power of tlio central authority.

"Opposed to tills theory tho dogma s now boldly presented that tariff taxation is Justifiable for tlie express pur- )ose and intent of promoting special ntorests and enterprises. Such a supposition is so clearly contrary to tho spirit of our coiistitutiem, and so direct- iy encourages disturbance, by selfishness and greed, of patriotic sentiment, that this statement would rudely shock our people If they had not already been insidiously allured from the safe landmarks of principle. Never has the honest desire for national growth, a patriotic devotion to country, and a sincere.regard for those who toil, boon so betrayed to support pernicious doctrines, Tho plea that our Infant industries should be fostered did service until discredited by our stalwar growth. Then 'followed the exigencies of a terrible war, and now, after a lonj, period of peace, when our overburdonec countrymen ask for relief and restora tion to tlie fuller enjoyment of their hi comes anel earnings, they are met b 1 tho for claim tho that sake tariff Of' taxatloi protectloi is the American system, a contiuu anco of which is necessary hi orelo that high wages may bo paid our work ing men and a homo market provide for our farm products. These pretense should no longer deceive. Tho truth is guch system is directly antagonistic t every sentiment of justice and falmes of which the Americans are pre-eni: nently proud. It is also a truth, tha while om- worliiuginen and f anners can least of all,oiu* People, defend them ply business needs. But whatever may be the form of national or state money —gold, silver or paper—it should be so regulated and guarded by governmental action or wise and careful laws that no one can be deluded as to the certainty and stability of its value. Every dollar put Into the hands of the people should be of the same intrinsic value of purchasing power. With this condition absolutely guaranteeel both golel and silver can be safely utilized upon equal terms in the adjustment of our currency. In dealing with this subject no selfish scheme should be allowed to Intervene or doubtful experiment made. The wants of our people arizing from the deficinecy of an imperfect distribution of money circulation ought to be fully and honestly recognized and eln- ieutiy remedied. It should, however, e constantly remembered that the in- oiivenicuce that might arise from such i situation can be much easier borne han the universal distress which must ollow a discredited currency. "Public oilicials are the agents of thc icople. It is their duty to secure for hose they represent thc best and most indent performance of public work. Tliis is best accomplished by regarding scertalned fitness in tho selection of government employes.

This is duo to those whoso worthy names adorn tho roll and to all our people who delight to honor the brave and true. It is also due to these who, in years to come, should bo allowed to hear, reverently anel lovingly, thc story of American patriotism and fortitude illustrated by our pension roll.
