The high protective tariff of Ger
many calls forth remonstrance in
business circles, and there is no doubt
the sentiment opposed to it would be
more powerful if the means for dis:
closing popular feeling were more
abundant. There is no each thing
known here as popular discussions of
public matters. Candidates for leg
islative or other offices never think
of addressing those, whose suffrages
iney ann. iuuu irequeuuy vauuc
dates do not announce themselves
until a few days before the election,
and if announcing any declaration of
principles it is in glittering, general
ities. The Reichstag and the news
papers are the only arena for the
ventilation of opinions on the Gov
ernment policy, and as can be un
derstood, the tendency in both
is rather to respect the official
than the popular sentiment'., Never
theless, tbe Government at times
gets some pretty hard raps from
both. The German tariff works ex
actly as the protective tariff under
which the people of the United
States groan. It puts money taken
from tbe pockets of the great mass
of the-f-eople into the coffers of a
iew great monopolies. it is aone
ostensibly under tbe same false and
disreputable pretext, that it is for
the benefit of the working classes.
it 19 nintea that tbe real reason for
tbe heavy tariff is .the necessity
which thn Government feels of rais
ing - all the money possible. The
trading classes are convinced that it
bears heavily upon them and those
who deal with them. There is not
much chance' for any abatement of
the tariff, for although German
Btatesmen and publicists will concede
in private its burdens and inequali
ties, it is held better for the Govern
ment to derive its revenues, so far
as it can, from indirect rather than
by direct taxation. j

The latent power of the Federal
Government is slowly but sorely un
folding and overshadowing manv
cherished doctrines of so called
States rights. The Supreme Court
of the United States has finally given
the last and decisive blow to the
longcheri8hed doctrine of State In
dependence. It has declared that
Congress alone has the power to leg
islate on inter-State matters relating
to foreign governments. This doc
trine of the absolute sovereignty of
the general Government has never
before been so powerfully proclaimed
as in the decision referred to, pre
pared by J ustice Bradley. "In mat
ters of foreign and inter-State com
merce," he declared, "there are no
States!" . 4)
The case in which this decision
was made was that of a law enacted
by Congress enabling a railroad
company to construct a bridge across
- the Arthur Kill river, between New
Jersey and Staten Island, New York.
In old times the construction of a
bridge across a river which separa
ted two States was supposed to re
quire the authority of Congress
and also the assent of both
the States. New Jersey refused
its assent to the construction of the
Arthur Kill bridsre. and thi men
tion grew out of that fact. The de
cision, in its immediate effect, settles
the doctrine that the United States
can delegate to a corporation, as was
done by act of Congress, ihe power
-to build a bridge across a river con
stituting the boundary line between
two States; and however, that a State
can not interfere with the erection
by the United States of a bridge be
tween different States. But far above
and beyond this mere practical ques-
nuuis me doctrine that "there are
no States," when Congress is acting
in its proper sphere and exercising
its constitutional powers. The Su
preme Court of the United jStates in
her Federal capacity has finally and
effectually repealed the Democratic
resolutions of 1798. j

The present high tariff has been in
the South has experienced its effects
ever since the war ended. In that
8? ? iSiT f the necessaries of
ingenious claim that the cost o such
necessaries now is lower than in SSSo
a signal instance of the benefit-f
protection. The South has beXck
in the Union since 1865, and has been
in sore straits for the greater part of
that time, although the high tariff
was in full play. He finds, however,
that there is now a marvellous pro
gress in oertain industriesthanks to
the same beneficent agency, j
It was not claimed that prices are
as low as (hey might be, but that
they are lower than they were nearly
thirty years ago. Nor was it claimed
that they have been reduced in the
United States only. This Mr. Ran
dall knows is not the faot, since they
have been lowered, at the same time,
in countrks where protection plays'
no part. It is as well, therefore to
follow his investigation a little fur
ther than Mr. Randall cared or found
it convenient to go. We need not
consider every instance he offered to
show the benefits of the polioy he
advocates. The weakness of his
whole argument may be exposed by
examining a few specimen' fallacies
only The reduced cost of food and
clothing, and the wonderful progress
in railroad building in the South, were
particularly insisted on. j
The reduced cost of food need not
be discussed at length. Food is pro
duced on tbe farms, and one claim
of the Protectionists, when it suits
their purpose, is that the price of all
farm products is enhanoed by the
operation of the tariff." It is suffi
cient, for the purpose of) answering
one of their class, at least, to set the
one claim over against the other.
Nor was Mr. Randall more fortu
nate In his reference to tbe reduoed
cost of clothing. However low the.
cost may be now, it would be very
much lower -but for one obstacle,
and that obsctacle is our high pro
tective tariff. Last year the people
of the United States imported foreign
clothing to the value of not less than
$100,000,000, upon which they paid
taxes at the custom houses amount
ing to $50,000,000. This, of course,
was in addition to the enhanced cost
of domestic clothing,1 upon which
they are taxed indirectly, but none
the less surely, to a far greater
amount. It is small comfort to the
people of any ' Southern State to
know that they pay their full . share
of this tax and get no; part of it in
return. I And it was! wise of Mr.
Randall not to go further into this
branch I of hia subject. The tariff
keeps up tbe price of clothing and
everything else that the people of
Georgia, and the booth generally,
have to buy, and they cell their cot
ton in a free market.) It is not sur
prising that he touched no lightly on
so delicate a point, j
Bat what of railroad building?
The Southern States i are among the
foremost in this field of develop
ment; bow does the tariff help or
hinder tbem here? "We are told,"
says Mr. Randall, "that the railroad
mileage of the South has been in
creased 15,000 miles since 1879," or
in the six years from 1880 to 1886,
inclusive. Now, the increased cost
of steel rails which is directly due
to the operation of tbe tariff, amounts
to about $12 a ton at the present
prices. This means a tax of $1,500
a mile, at least, on every mile of
railway that was built in the
South in the period which Mr. Ran
dall mentions, and was collected on
the bare rails alone, without taking
the rolling stock, &c, into the ac
count. A very 6'imple calculation
shows, then, that the amount of tax
paid by the Sonth on this single arti
cle, in six years, was $22,500,000.
The i?bn and steel manufacturers of
Pennsylvania got the benefiV of this
vast sura, and their satisfaction and
Mr. Randal!' can be easily under
stood. It is not so easy to conceive why
the people of Georgia and other
Southern States should take any par
ticular delight in the process by
which, they are robbed, Or why they
should desire it to be continued.

has hardly left standing room in the town

the visitors were escorted through the
streets in carriages tbis morning, with the
many beautiful and even palatial residences,
and with the signs of the enormous com-

every hand.' There were every where evi
dencts of immaturity. Tbe streets in many
places were torn up, and building opeia
tions seemed almost every where in pro
gress. The President's conductors pointed
out these features with pride. "Wedo not
boatt of the residences we have built,"
they said, "so much as of the business we
have started, which is going to build our
residences hereafter."
Tbe ride was well managed, and was
thoroughly an enjoyable affair. Only car

were proviaea . i ney were preceded ana

The party set out from the hotel at 9.80
o'clock amid tbe cheers of the multitude,
and made its way rapidly through the
western portion of the town without stop
p'ntr. until it reached the highest eminence
in the city, From this point . the bluff fell
away precipitously to the lower town,
three hundred feet below. Immediately
beneath stretched five or six square miles
of railroad yards, and as the President's
can iage made its appearance on the brow
of tbe hill every locomotive of, all the
fifteen railroads centering here ocened its
throat and f creamed. Tbe concert was led
by the rusty looking u onsters. whose tones.
by some manipulation of the performing
artists, were exactly like the howling of a
family of coyottes, : only multiplied to ear-
splitting dimensions. The President's at
tention was called to the great area lying
beyond the railroads covered by the mam
moth packing houses and establishments
for the sale of agricultural implements.
A pause was made at Ihe .Exposition
buildiogj but the President did not alight.
From this point the party proceeded to the
site of the projected new Young Men's
Christian Association building, on " the
northwest corner of Northwest and Locust
streets, of which tbe President laid the cor-.
ner s one. This Ceremony was preceded
bv the s ngiog of hymns and brief addresses
and prayer by Bishop Hendrix The
President's remarks on the occasion were
as follows:
"la the busy activities of our daily life
we are not to neglect the instrumentalities
which are quietly, but effectually doing
most important service in moulding our na
tional character. Among these, and chal
lenging but little notice compared with
their valuable results, are the Young Men's
Christian Association scattered throughout
our couoiry. All will admit the supreme
importance of that honesty and fixed prin
ciple which rests upon Christian motives
and purpose: and all will acknowledge the
sad and increasing temptations which be
set our young men and lure them to their
destruction To save these young men. of
ten times deprived of the restraints of
home, from degradation and ruin, and to
fit them I for usefulness and honor, these
Associations have entered the field of
Christian effort, and are pushing their do
ble wotka. i When it is considered
that tbe subjects of their efforts are t
be c:ive man for good or evil in tbe next
generatipa, mere worldly prudence dictates
ibni tbe$e Associations should be aided and
encouraged. Their increase and flourish
ing condition rt fleet tbe highest honor up
on the good men who have devotod them

the American people are not entirely lack
tog to appreciation of its value. Twenty

gentry ,j a florid, well built, though rather
neavy man, was discovered by his victim
in tbe set, just too late, however, to pre
vent the robbery. Loud cries of "catch
that mu, interrupted the impressive pro
cetdings for a second. A man was sen to
dash from the crowd, fall off a stone wall,
knock over CDe or two women, 'and rush
for freedom, with three or fourpolicemen
after him.
When tbe brief proceedings were ended
the President and hia party went to their
hotel where an hour was given to lunch. ;
At about half-past 1 o'clock E. EL Al
len. president of the Board of Trade and
chairman of tbe Reception Committee, ex
Congressman Van Horn, Congressman War

then escorted through the more thickly
Duut business streets of the city, and
brought out at tbe rear of tbe government
building, where they arrived about 3
o clock. Alighting, they were escorted
through the postofflce and out upon the
front portico oi the building, where a stand
and awmng had been erected. Fully 60,
000 people were congregated about this
point, j roofs, windows, telegraph poles.
ana radiating streets as far as they were
visible being packed with humanity.
When the band had finished the straios
of "Hail to the Chief," Mr. Allen ad
vanced to the rail and introduced to the
President Mayor Henry C. Kump, who
made the formal speech of welcome to the
President j It was a model of brevity as
"Mr. President: On behalf of the citi
zens of this city it is my pleasant duty to
oia you a nearty welcome to the metropo
lis of the Missouri Valley We Are happy
to receive and entertain ocr President.
Although elected by one political party: yet
when I elected : he is the President! of tbe
whole; people. This vast assemblage of
people have come here not only to show
their respect for tbe president of al nation
of over fifty millions of people, but for the
man also. We will do all we can to ren
der your visit pleasant, and hope that we
will succeed in our laudable efforts I
again bid yon a hearty welcome to tbe city
of Kansas." !
The President spoke as follows in reply:
"I had not long settled upon a visit to
St. Louis, when I found that it would not
do at all to go there without also seeing
this wonderful city jon Missouri's western
border. One of your enterprising citizens,
anxious that I should not reach here in ig
norance of your achievements, has sent me
a newspaper exhibiting the progress of the
city during tbe first six months of the pre
sent year. Three months have passed since
this record was made up, and he wrote me
that be thought if I added fifty per cent, to
the figures which it contained, it would
strike the proper estimate of your condi
tion to-day. While this shows the deepest
faith and confidence in what you can do, I
am inclined to think from something I
have recently seen published, that the rule
thus laid down is none too liberal, i The
truth of the statement made in tbis news
paper report is clinched by the compiler
when he says at the beginning, "tbe fact is
that it is almost impossible to lie about
Kansas City." And when the splendid del
egation of your business men called on me,
and in the kindest and most cordial way
invited me to be your guest, one of them
was introduced as a dealer in real estate,
who, it was declared, If I came here
would sell me a city lot before I left. And
this reminds me of a friend who made a
trip to the Pacific Coast; as he came back
he found his way to Kansas City.and while
there bought a lot. He went Immediately '
home, and when he arrived there he found
that his lolf had been sold for enough in
ad vance of its cost to pay he expenses of

sufficient to state that it is apparent ia the

which are made necessary by your phe

per hips needs it for its building up. If

spersed were openings for corn and cotton

tions were toing on, and there were casual
saw mills and lumber yards. The preva-
iem uweiungs were oi logs ana boards, in
front of. which blonde youngsters, were
drawn up in line for review and

Hogs of shadowy proportions, armed with
incredible snouts, glided between the trees.

suDjtcted to overflow by the Mississippi.
The first sign of approach to Memphis
was the appearance on the train (no one
knew how they got there), of handsome
lithographs ot tbe President and Mrs.
Cleveland, the allegorical bordering of
which contained figures in the costumes of
tne ancient Egyptian Memphis, with ren-
resentations of the industries of her modern
namesake. . later bouquets of flowers sur
rounded by snowy cotton bolls made their
appearance on Mrs. Cleveland's table.
Memphis, Oct 15. The managers of the
r leciueuiiai reception are quite chagrined
over the little mishap of yesterday, and
were in consultation long after midnight
w im icKsru io tne proceedings OI to-day.
This morning the committees were prompt
ly on hand, but the late hours of last night
caused a delay in starting the procession of
carriages, and again upset the committee's
arrangements, to narm was done beyond
the curtailment of the opportunity offered
mo xrresiueui to see me town.
Memphis is not yet a beautiful city. It
Dears too many ot the scars of war and
pestilence, but it is a very busy one. The
oia time anti-war architecture, showing
small and rusty fronts, prevails largely.
but in its main business thoroughfares
structures oi substantial appearance are
showing themselves, while the wbarves
and warehouses show the seething, push
ing energy of its business men, and give
promise oi a prosperous iuture.
The procession, headed bv a band and
millitary, moved from the hotel at quarter
town was full of interest. The decorations
were probably more elaborate and more
general than those of any place yet visited
oy tne rresiaent, with tbe possible excep
Uon uf Madison. Whatever gay colors
could do to make the occasion a success
haa been done. Twice along the line of
march beautiful bouquets of flowers, in
unique designs, were lowered into the
President s carnage. Twice as many peo
ple as ever were seen in the town were
upop the streets, but good order was pre
served by the mounted marshals. j
The large, handsomely dressed stand in
Court Square was reached by the
President at about half naat 10
o'clock, and the formalities of the reception
were begun. A formal speech of welcome
was delivered by Judge H. T. Ellett. of
the Chancery Court, a courtly gentleman
of high local repute, who spoke both for
Memphis and for the South.
Judge Ellett extended, as reoresentativA
of the whole people of Memphis, a hearty
welcome, and. presented not symbolicallv
only, but in tbe most substantial and
practical form, the freedom of the city.
"You have recently participated," be said,
"in the celebration of the OnA nnnilMillli
anniversary of the formation' of the donate
tution of the ynited states, and you have
beheld multitudes of our fellow country
men flocking from every direction to the
spot where that instrument was fashioned
and renewing ihelr vows of fealty at the
shrine of the grandest monument of human
wisdom. Let me say, sir, that the South -era
heast was in full sympathy with tbat
interesting occasion: and that no Where all
through ibis broad land, will you find
more loyalty to the Constitution of tbe
United States and to the government
created by it, tban among tbe people of
jibe Southern 8tates, Differences of opinion
as to iu true theory and its proper con
struction in some points existed from its
very creation, and controversy has often
been angry and bitter. One great and lm
pottaot Interest in! the progress of things
became KCtlonalized, and out of it the re
quiiement of constitutional interpretation,'
which was regarded by the Southern peo
ple as Si vital to their rights and interests.
i that they committed their solution to the
arbitration of arms; but, Mr. President,
they have bowed to the stern logic of
events, until they have, in a fnnk
and manly way, accepted the result of
the struggle, a final settlement of .all ques
i tions in dispute, and they have since labor
ed with rare courage, fortitude and cheer
fulness to accommodate themselves ' to
their new condltions.fto teconstruct their
broken fortunes, and to contribute as far
as possible to the general prosperity and
happiness of the whole country. As one
practical result accomplished by the con
flict, the theory of the right of a State to
withdraw from the Federal compact was
overthrown, and tbeindestiuctibillty of the
American union was established on the
firmest foundations. The chief element of
discord has been removed forever, and
though questions will- continue to arise
about which men may differ, and differ
earnestly, it is settled beyond appeal that
for all abuses and grievances that may arise
from the action of the general government,
the remedy must hereafter be sought within
the pale of the Union and under the forms
of the established law. There is a distin
guishing feature of this occasion which in
vests it with peculiar interest. Heretofore
Presidential progresses have usually been
of a political character and have been with
out the grace and charm afforded by female
presence and influence. In these respects
the present event is exceptional. We ali
rejoice tbat you are accompanied by Mrs.
Cleveland, and we are glad of the oppor
tunity to lay at her feet our tribute, of
homage and admiration. To her fellow
countrywomen , her presence is especially
gratifying. They are proud to have
such a representative of their sex as the
presiding spirit of the Executive Mansion,
and at tbe head of the society at the Na
tional capital, and to know that in the dis
charge of all her duties, she is constantly
winning golden opinions from all sorts of
people. On behalf of the ladies of Mem
phis. I beg you to present to her their cor
dial and respectful salutations."
The President replied as follows
"The city of Memphis represents neither
a new settlement,; nor a recent municipal
creation. She has a long history, full of
vicissitude and discouraging incident. Now
the largest city in Tennessee, in its first
growth was illustrated the universal push
and activity of its people. I have come
from sight-seeing in the wonderful West to
be still surprised in the South. From mar
vellous growth I have come to see not only
marvellous growth but astonishing recu
perations. Tbe active trade upon vour
streets and in your exchanges tells only the
tale of one of the largest cotton markets in
the world, and of one of the .most prosper
ous and flourishing cities of the South.
Scarcely a trace is seen of the trials and
discouragement through which it passed in
gaming its present position, ana yet When
it had, in 1862, by steady growth reached a
population of thirty thousand, it was occu
pied by a military force, and for four veers
thereafter was held as a fortified camo.
During Ibis time the People were scattered
and its growth checked. When at the
close of the war its citizens returned to
their homes, they courageously set about
repairing tbe damage of war and military
occupation. Although within ten vears
thereafter twice has this citv been afflict
ed with yellow fever, yet through
these visitations her people struggled on,
determined to overcome them In 1 1878
when once more apparently on the hitrh
road to permanent prosperity, this devoted
city was again visited by iu dreadful
scourge in a more malignant form than
ever before. No one can wonder that in
tne dreaded presence of this dire calamity

President is greatly shocked by the intelli

he met for the first time yesterday. He
oxpresses tbe warmest sympathy with the
bereaved family. Dr. Bryant says he

unfortunate man's side, but said nothing
until he was relieved a few minutes later
by two local physicians To these he said
the Judge was dead.
