Pension Agent Logansport Ind The Dtlitrhtful Willing to Heopmi the Ouentioii A letter from W B Franklin commis oncr general of the United States at the illid exposition to Mr Hlaine gives tho ubstance of an interview between Messrs leid and Franklin and M Spullor the rench minister of foreign affairs at hich M Spuller admitted that the citi ins of France did not believe that the oiisiunption of American pork by them voiild injure the health of the consumers I Spnller lidded however that there vould be difliculty in having the prohibl ion removed on account of the protec ionist feeling Mr Reid was assured that VI Spuller was quite willing to reopen tho liiestion of prohibition of pork products CoUliit lie Fooled Tlint IVuy In response to an invitation given by Mr Iluid to inspect the American pork iroducts at the exposition Mr Spnller jn Nov 1SS9 sent a note stating that n the opinion his colleague who had oharge of the health department an in pection of the meat shown in the exhibi ion wonld not have the importance Mr Keids letter seemed to give it as the su erior quality of the meat already estah ished by rewards would not prove that he moss of American hog products is squally good liitiliio Impresses Himself Robustly Included in the correspondence is a let ter from Mr Blaiue to Mr Reid inclos ng a letter from secretary of agricul ture giving a history of the harsh and unreasonable restrictions to qote Mr Blaine imposed by the governments of Franco Germany and Great Britain against the importation of American live animals and hog products In letter which is dated Mdrch4 iSM Mr Hlaine nstructs Mr Reid to express the hope to tho French authorities that tho French government may now be to ex tend equitable rulitif from the unjust meas ures The Mclvinley Hill Citod Early in July last Mr Reid called on M Kibot tho French ministeiof foreign af fairs and in a letter to Secretary Blaine dated Julv It he says that during the in terview M Kibol1 continued as he had done on every simitar occasion previously to state that tlia agitation over the Me Kin ley bill mac any notion on this point ex tremely dillicnlt Mr Reid protested that France was the aggressor and should take the first step The Fiunch Have u Oricvanoo A voluminous letter dated Julr 3 was sent to M Kiuor by Mr Reid The American minister in this communication endeavors to show M Ribot the mistake France is making iu excluding American pork and quotes statistics to Ciury out his argument lie hints ata possible pro hibition of French wines by tho United States owing to the growth of the wine industry in this country and refers to tho effect such action would have on France On July 11 1S90 II Ribot sent a note to Mr Reid in which he siid the dilllcnlties In the way of removing tlie prohibition had been increased bv measures which wero finally passed or voted on by the house of representatives and which do not fail to raise just complaints on the part of the Freiuch government M Ribot referred to the turitt bill and the cusTbms administrative bill A Horse oir Another Color Mr Reid in a letter to M Riboc dated July 28 ISflO asks pardon for endeavoring to show that this is a view of the situa tion which the facts do not warrant Be sides there would appear to be no simi larity or just relation ol any kind between the two subjects which your French exclusion of Amer ican porkand the two American bills cur rently culled the McKinley bills nor is any reason apparent why a continuance of the one should M jnstifiol by rour ap prehensions as to the others TheFrenchman The American bills conch all countries with absolute impartiality The French decree singles out the United States from all other countries and prohibits its pro ducts alone while the similar products of the rest of the world are admitted The American bills make no charges against the quality of the product whose importa tion they regulate or tax The French decree is bused upon the indefensible clmrge that the American product exclud ed is unwholesome though this charge has been repudiated by the French Acad emy of Medicine itself nnd though this prohibited and unwholesome product has recently been crowned by the highest prize of yuur owu universal exposition Johnny Crujmuil ftlie Aggressor the circumstances I venture to at tho French government is not QUAY REPUDIATES

by Speaker Reed r He had made no such re mark and had made no reflections on that distinguished presiding officer of the other branch of congress jfSig As tn the Elections Bill In a conversation with a reporter Quay said I am satisfied that a majority of the senate is opposed to any change in the rules and we cannot expect to pass the elections bill without some such change I nm not opposed to the elections bill but I am opposed to sacrificing the tariff bill for it The tarill bill is an immediate necessity Tho elections bill can wait The tariff bill ought to be passed at the earliest moment in order to relieve the strain upon business and permit the man ufacturers to make their contracts and the merchants to purchase their goods for next season Merchants will no buy any reailuxi thing and manufacturers will not sell any thing until the question of duties is set tled and unless the tariff bill be passed and put into force within the next thirty days the business of the whole year will be destroyed The Congressional Brief WASHINGTON CITY Aug sen ate yesterday shelved the tariff bin for two days and took up river and har bor bill which had nearlybeen completed at adjournment

will meet with strong opposition In the house One of these strikes out the appropriations for the widows of deceased members the other cuts out the extra compensation for the official reporters of the house The object of the senate com mittee is to throw these items into confer ence where they can be discussed fully The senate never appropriates more than for the family of a deceased senator Some
