Cleveland on the I ariff BiP.
Tbe ten days -having expired since the
passage of the Tariff bill without Presi
dent Cleveland having either approved
or vetoed it; it becomes a law without
his signature as lie intended it should.
The President has written a letter to
Representative Cntehing's. of Mississippi,
giving his views m. the new tariff bill and
bis reasons for withholding his signature
to it. He says it is roi in line with true
tariff reform, that the work of trusts ar.d
combinations prevented the success de
served, and that there are besides crudities
and inconsistences in the bill which
ought not to bj in tariff laws of any
kind, and as be cannot promptly and en
thusiastically endorse the measure, he
withholds his signature, as a mark ol his
disapproval of the ptesent bill and with
holds bis veto because w ith all its faults
it is a vast improvement over existing
conditions. He says it is not only a
barrier against the return of mad protec
tion but it affords a vantage ground from
which must lie waged further aggressive
operations against monopoly and gover
The letter is a calm patriotic States
man like presentatiou of tbe situation and
should do much towards dispelling the
idea that some have that Cleveland is a
man of unreasonable stubb irness. While
believing that better ought to have been
done he yields to circumstances for the
present . but seeks for bettor ere long.
And now that the good work of re
form and of honest i conomical gover-nn-nt
lias been started again in National
affairs may no untoward event again
hinder it .

directed their attention to the more prom

delineation and directness of expression
as intcn-ifieel interest an .1 give a sem

At that time d:irk:;.-ss covered the
earth anel gross darkness the people, the
peculiar phases of which were pe'mted
out with a d 'tinitelie-s anel p n tieulority
which we cannot now ri'produee in this
brief article. The ports of many nations
were closed against tin- entrance of En
glish speaking people. Christianity was
denied a hearing, cannibalism prevailed
to an amazing extent in the islands of the
sea. and the whole world see, mid to be
lying in wickidness.
Another similar tour was taken to ob
serve the changes and progress of a hun
dred years, anil show in the light of the
living present what God hath wrought.
Now the ports of the world ate open to
intercommunication, the interior ol the
'dark continent" has been explored, and

triumph over the crescent, so that there
is now no place on the rounel earth which
is not open to the reception and influence
ol the gospel; and cannibalism has be
come almost if not wholly unknown.
The saving power of the present, en
Christian dispensation doubtless the
last dispensation has beyond rpiestiou
been thi far, many i'oltl greater than of
all which have preceeleel it, and the last
hundred years have been most fruitful of
results. More of organized, systematic,

forth than in a!! past Irstory. Money
has flowed more freely into the Lorelfs

The promise of the Lord stands sure:
"In the last days (present dispensation)

nations shall flow unto it."' If any one,
in view of th0. ""distress of nations' and
prevalent wickedness of the times, has
been led to believe or fear that the arch
enemy is triumphing over men, a broader,
worlel around view will assure him that
God still sits serene upon tbe throne, elir

of his declared purpose. There is reason
for an earnest expectation and hope that
the few remaining years of the closing
century will b-j years of the right hand ot
the Most High, and that the morning sun
of the new century will lend up to active

the Democratic People of North
Having never been a candidate liefbre

of Senator Vance. In doing this, I do not
antagonize either ol the present Senators,
but aspire to an office that neither of them
The two great epiestions involved in
the Chicago platform were Tariff Reform
and Financial Reform. The tariff bill
just passed does not fully meet expecta
tions, and I favor such modifications of it
as will deprive every trust and combine
of any advantage it allows.
On thejtariff, and on most subjects,
stanel with our Democratic President,
and give him a cordial and zealous sup
port. I regret not to be able te agree
with him in his financial policy. Finan
cial reform is of the most pressing impor
tance, and I favor immediate action in
respect to that matter.
To many the result of the first regular
session of our Democratic Congress has
been something of a disappointment. Dis
appointments come to all parties. The
Republican party is at present disap
pointed at the repeal of the McKinley
tariff law; at the enactment of an income
tax at the repeal of the law placing our
elections untler supervision of Federal
Marshals; at the continueel supremacy of
the Democrats in the Southern States and
their full accession to power at Washing
ton, aud at the complete failure of Repub
lican plans and purposes.
Our disappointments are but temp i
ary in their nature. They shoulel make
u3 only the more determined to press 011
ward until the principles ol the Demo
cratic party are fully carried into opera
tion to the lasting benefit and advantage
of the people, and to the glory of our
country. In this clause I havealreaely
spent many years of my life, and I slia.il
esteem it a privilege to continue my work
iu the new flelel and high station to which
I aspire. I therefore solicit your favor
aud support, trusting that you may es
teem me worthy to represent you in the
Senate Chamber, anil I beg my friends,
wherever they may be, who favor my
election, to be active in urging it.

'Colonial Records'' has hoped to publish
two volumes this fall, completing tbe
work down to January 1, 1781. But
owing to tne illness 01 Mr. s 111 spurg, 01
the British Public Records Offh e in Lon
den, wdio has been copying whatever
could be found there bearing 011 our his

the winter and possibly till next spring.
They cover an interesting p riod, tbe
larger part of the Revolutionary War,
1776 to 1781.

have made the publication long years ago
when much material for our history ex
isted which is now hopi'les-lv lost.
