The "Man about Town," in the New York Star, has this^interesting piece of political gossip in which Western New Yorkers figure quite prominently : In Ms. Eichaid Crowley's book, "Echoes from Niagara,'" she describes one of the methods adopted by William M. Tweed and Ptichard B. Connolly in 1866 to cement and extend the power which at that time they were gradually tut surely absorbing. She writes that they created especially for her husband's benefit the office of Counsel to the Tax Commission at $10,000 a year, and then, in order to illustrate the ingratitude of the late President Arthur, who had been the life-long friend of her husband, she adds : "Mr, Crowley made, perhaps, one of the greatest mistakes of has life in declining, for fortune seldom raps twice at one's door,and instead of ac- ceptiEg the kind offer, he presented the ofilce to his then dear and trusty friend, Chester A. Arthur. This continued long enough to enable Mr. Arthur to extricate himself from the pecuniary embarrassments ·which then troubled him, but which he so despised in others when he became prosperous. It was not alone the coatof-arms, which spoke of long and spotless pedigree, that he desired in his associates in the white house, but also great fortunes -- the Astors, the Yanderbilts and many othei s with whom he never had the very slightest lacquaintanee ·when living" in New York. He demanded money or blood. Genius he did Dot-wish to be contrasted with, and even beauty was sever repre- sented-ln tke circle ihat surrounded Mm." '·' It has long been accepted as a fact by those familiar with the local political history of the inner circle of those days that Mr. Arthur took this office with the understanding that the salary -was to be divided with Senator Crowley, and that the arrangement was fully carried out. Kbthinj: short of documentarylproof could demonstrate to those familiar with the factsjthat the countrary was the cate. Ex-Senator Thomas J. Crcarucr. who was a Tax Commissioner at that time, and was responsible for Mr. Arthur's appointment, might, it is said, tell an interesting story on this point if he chose. E\-S- i.ator Creamer has. his inti- mat PI- i f late when discussing this piira-e of the earlj political career of the l ^ t o I 'resident Arthur, said that tbo i it'^r accepted the office in time, with the distinct un- ; ng that the salary of $10,000 a y ar was to be divided witb Senator ( rowley. When John M W^ky was oonteptinc with Mr Crr-~r -· the election to congress in the th'.rv tLird district, two years f i e personalities of the canvass rically opposed to each othor, aud it is auxusiflg to watch the tortuous efforts of those who hare gloried in McKinley and his theory and who are now seeking to reconcile all they have said in his behalf with the project of the secretaiTi which, it is intimated, will be endorsed by the president. But tho poor subsidized editor, who dare not break with either and feels bound to support them both, has really a hard time of it and is entitled to our warmest sympathy. He is trying to accomplish the feat described in the old proverb as holding with the hare and running with the hounds. Reciprocity is the child of free trade, and is- utterly and bitterly opposed to the theory of protection. It declares that the best thing any people can ao is to purchase what they need wherever they can find it, but always in the cheapest market. It does not seek to supply itself at home, but goes into the foreign field and proclaims that it is for the interest of nations to exchange their products free of charge, each taking from the other whatever may be found best and cheapest in the market it visits. Whether on a large or small scale, reciprocity is absolutely free trade to the extent of the list exchanged; and if it is wise and has been found profitable within the limits set for it, then the theory of protection is not the pattern to be commended and accepted for all time, and walls of exclusion are not the bright realities described by their enthusiastic admirers. Mr. Elaine's reciprocity system is a catapult aimed at this pet of his party.He belives in foreign commerce He would build and even subsidize ghips to go after tin plates and whatever else it would pay us to purchase in the foreign market. It is true he does not unfold the plan to this extent, but it is in the blood of the infant he has christened and is introducing to his fellow-countrymen. As protection, if good at all, is good everywhere and in everything, so reciprocity, if wise in principle is beneficent in its widest application. And it has in its constitution a charm fitted to American institu. tions. It is the theory of liberty as opposed to selfish restraint. It reaches out the hand for trade and commerce with the nations. It has for its messengers and. servants the the whitewiuged ships that sail every sea, and ic unites the continents in the ties of a friendly intercourse stimulated and cemented by a common profit. But what place can possibly be found for it hi a protective tariff constructed to forbid the admission of foreign products on the ground that their manufacture here is absolutely essential to the prosperity of the country i Protection and reciprocity in the same bill, like the Kilkenny cats tied to one string, are not likely to have a peaceful time of it. We do not see how the most artful manipulator can reconcile these two antagonistic priciples. reacntatives without thu advice or consent of tho people of the United States. It was hawtily;.pa8Bed and without due consideration. It should bo reconsidered and published to the world, so that those who are to bo governed by it may know what it is in time to express their opinion on it before its passage into law. The next best thiug for the people to do is to send in their protest to tho senate against its passage by that body. Our members should act at once and ask the senators from the various states to voice their sentiments on this measure when it comes up for consideration. The names of every congressman should be published to the world, and the citizens who are opposed to such high-handed work should scratch them'on next election day. The monopolists and partisan centralists cannot afford to disregard this protest, so full of wisdom and patriotism. It strikes at the very ore of the iniquitous force bill, and is unanswerable. SVIKG- A POLITICAL DEBT. Vice-President Morton, says the Kingston Leader, occupies a singularly infelicious position as plaintiff in a suit to secure from the estate and children of the late Mrs. Stephen T. Hopkins the sum of $2,500, which, it is alleged, was used to buy assemblymen for the vice-president in his celebrated effort to become a United States senator to succeed Warner Miller. Mr. Morton can afford to bear his own political debts and the Hopkins family is practically bank- rapt through political'.ambitiorj. He owes whatever of political preferment he has received,includingthe vice-presidency, to the fact that he is a man of vast wealth. The senatorial canvass of 1886-7 was a disgrace to the Empire state. Fortunately Mr. Morton did not succeed in his aspirations to a seat in the senate chamber, nor was evidence lacking that so far as Mr. Miller was concerned, the fight was "boodle" against "boodle." Neither contcs tant yielded to the other and Mr Hiscock became the beneficiary of the Morton campaign so that he might go to Washington and malign his opponents and misrepresent the people. It is a dark chapter in our political history that the suit of Morton agr. Hopkins calls vividly to mind. What the result of Mr. Morton's suit cannot be predicted and really no one but the one who is in pursuit of-the $2,500 cares. But that the vice-president of the United States, a millionaire many times over, should prosecute little children for the recovery of what must be a political debt, whether used to elect Morton assemblymen or Hopkins to congress, is a little more than the ordinary man can stand without expiessing a vigorous opinion against the use of money in politics.

When the facts UK to export discounts were first brought to public attention through the Reform club's parnplilet, and the discussion caused by it in congress, the protectionists were very much annoyed. It was exceedingly unpleasant to them to see the proofs that many of our protected manufacturers are selling to foreijmers cheaper than to Amer- 1CHT1S* But matters could not be left in that state; the facts had to be denied in some ·way. During the tariff debate in the house, ·when Congressman Mansur, of Missouri, called attention to the facts contained in the pamphlet, Mr. Smyser, of Ohio, ·was ready with a denial, which he tacked up with childlike innocence by quoting The Cleveland Leader. More recently a copy of the foreign edition of The American Mail and Export Journal has been secured by Mr. Lindquist, the tariff ezpert % of the Reform club.

V'e felt assured fro in the first, says the Atlanta Constitution, that American labor would send up a pro test against the force bill from the field, the furnace and the factory. and we have not been disappointed. The Farmers" Alliance has already spoken out fa thunder tones, and now Mr. Fowderly, of the Knights of Labor, comes to the front with a protest, \vhielt' the Senate will not %ffe to ignoie. Mr. Powderly's strong common sense enables him to clearly see his way through all the mists aad fogs surrounding the Lodge bill. He asks : "Why should a special law be t n acted to regulate the election of congressmen * Whom do they represent that they should insist on manipulating the election machinery in their own intei efts' A congressman does not represent the "United States in the house of represents lives -- he represents a number o citizens comprising a certain teni tory % in a certain state, and the people of that state should have the right to scrutinize and regulate the election of a man or men who will represent them in congress.

Distress after eating, sour stomach, sick headache, heartburn, loss of appetite, a faint, " all gone " feeling, bad taste, coated tongue, and irregularity of the bowels, are some of the more common symptoms. Dyspepsia does not get wen of itself. It requires careful, persistent attention, and a remedy like Hood's Sarsa- parffla, which acis gently, yet surely and efficiently. It tones the stomach and other organs, regulates the digestion, creates a good appetite, and by thus @|ck overcoming the local symp- ··__ -i--^i,-* toms removes the sympa- Paeawacne thetic effects of the disease, banishes the headache, and refreshes the tired mind. " I have been troubled with dyspepsia. I had but little appetite, and what I did eat distressed me, or did me jj ttle soo ^ in an. hour after eating I would experience a f aintoess, or tired, all-gone feeling, as though I had not eaten anything. My trouble, I think, was aggravated by my business, ·which is that of a painter, and from being more or less shut up in a room with fresh paint. Last spring I took Hood's Sarsa- rflla-- took three bottles. immense amount of good. appetite, and my food relished and satisfied »;he craving I had previously experienced." GEOEGE A.
