OUR WASHINGTON LETTEE

Cor. of the Watchman.
Washington, April 13, 1S91. Mr.

ksows any thing about the Italian gev-
vernment having notifiad Mr. Blaine
that if he .did not immediately satis
factorily anwer its last dispatch it
would break oil all diplomatic regula-
tions ana lumma ny aisnnss our min
isters from Home, as the cable aaysthe
Italian newspapers have pastively
stated for several days past-, lie keeps it
well hid from those who see him.
Ho is devoting his time to putting
tmgs in shape for hit four or five
weeks absence, which will begin to-
morrw, ana wnicn t .course, wouia
not begin at all if he had any idea now
or serious ruptures with Italy. It is

to U. S. Treasurer Huston has been at
last solved by Mr. E. N. Nedecker, of
Indiana, having agreed to accept th
office, and the official announcement is
Excepted to-day or to-morrow.
Mr. Blaine seems luchned to lose hi
temper because of thera.inncrin whieh
the press has discussed ami .disposed of
matter. V hen assed tor information
as to whether his answer to thn last
dispatch had been sent he petulantly

the 'answer to that last dispatch' was
written and read 'to the cabinet last
week is certain, but whether it
has yet been sent nly the President
and members of the cabinet know, and
they will not tell.
It is believed by unprejudiced ob
servers that th administration and the
Canadian authorities are both using the
reciprocity question for political ad
vantages in the respective countries,
and it would be dilhcult to hnd a mau
here, who has given the present con
dition of-things any serious study who
believes that auy Canadian reciprocity
treaty will ba negotiated by thepres
ent administration, notwithstanding
the appointment by Mr. Blaiiie of
next October as the time to hear
the Canadian propositions. The Mc-
Kinley tariff law hits Canadian inUr
ests hard, and it was intended to do
that every thing. There is a well de
nnea movement, aitnougn not yc an
pen one, to compel Canada to ask for
annexation, or take the commercial
consequences. Trade reciprocity would
intertere with this scheme, therefore
there will be no reciprocity.

lCol. Polk gave it out that there were
4,000,000 people belonging to the la
bor organizations in this country who
will not vote for Mr. Cleveland next

all whp have an occasion to use may
A good many husbands are utterly
spox.ed by mismanagement. Some
women go about as if their husbands

with him. If he sputters and fizzes,
do not be anxious; some husbands do
this until they are quite done. Add a
little sugar in the form of what con
fectioners call kisses, but no vinegar
or pepper on any account. A little
spice improves them, but It must be
used with judgement. Do not stick
any sharp instrument into him to see
if he is becoming tender. Stir him
gently; watch the while lest he lie
too flat and close to the kettle, and so
became useless. You cannot fail to
tell wlum he is dene. If thus treated
you will find him very digestible,
agreeing very nicely with you and the
children, and he will keep as "long as
you want, unless you become careless

right direction to get this much, and if
wecan get no more we may congratu-
each other on accomplishing this much.
But let us get more.
Farmers constitute a vast majority
of the citizens in our country and they
should. have the corresDondinc ma-
ioritr in all the responsible positions in
legislation throughout the land. From
the presideat of the United -States to
the Governor representatives in our
State Legislature the farmers should be
in the majority. It is the height of
folly say. to take no organized action
about who shall make or execute our I
iaw?. t e wannarmers ana ineinenas
of agriculture wherever we can get
them, and we must have farmers at the
head of political affairs if we should
have them we wish them,
It is very well known that laws are of
such an intricate nature now that verv
few can understand them and the way
is hard to find out. The vast machinery I
of the law is more complicated than
steam engines or electrical motors
and why ? Because oar rulrs have
been to a very great extent lawyers
men who have no sympathy with far-
raers, and whose interest consisting in I
promoting ieuas instead or cultivating
place; who grow fat upon laws which
ha e been fashioned specially to ac
complish tbfi end.
We want plain, hard common-sense
farmers in. the majority, that laws may
be made plain and justice may be had
without the necessity of quibbles and
technicalities, and without the change
or escape of crimi'ials through the
ira nwion of a word or the neglect of
Most of all we want farmers in the
majority in State and United "States
legislative halls, that farmers may have
their just share of benefits coming
from laws which bear upon"farming
interests. We should have the Presi
dent, Governors and legislators, to the
extent necessarv to secure these riehts 1
which are now torn from us to build'
up millionaire manufacturers, corpor
ations and monopolies generally as well
as the vast truths which openly defy
the right in their greed after the far
mers' toil-earned dollars.
Let the organizing go, farther then,
than selling of produce and the buying
of a few articles for the house and farm.
Let it resolve, not for the spirit of
Democrat or Republican, but in earnest
co-operation to place farmers to rule
over us, to make and execute the laws
upon which depend all our welfare and
happiness. Maryland Farmer.
