THE "bosses" of both political par

suffrage amendment there, but that

IT is reported that Miss Maggie j
Harrison, the President's neice, was
on Monday saved from drowning in
Lake Minnetonka, Minn. The names
of three gentlemen are connected
with the event but neither is given
special prominence over the others.
It is understood that all will he treated
alike and that their commissions will
be issued as soon as their Democratic
predecessors have been formally re
moved. The time when Republics
were ungrateful is past.
OKLAHOMA is a typical American
city. It is less than two months old
and announces a grand celebration of
the Fourth of July, which a commit
tee has been appointed to conduct.
Excursion trains are to he run to the
new city, and the committee confi
dently announces that 30,000 stran
gers will visit the place. A great deal
of this is Western brag, but it will
have its ofiect, and the speculators
who have lots and claims to sell fore
see in flic Fourth of July celebration
a fine opportunity to bring sight seers
and investors to the new city.
CERTAIN politicians, who thought
they were going to grow Presidential
timber when they planted David Ben
nett Kill on the ruins of the Presiden
tial campaign in New York last fall,
are finding out that treachery is a
poor fertilizer. While Gov. Hill's
friends in Albany are vindicating the
purity of his motives and the honesty
of his purpose, the moulders of Demo
cratic opinion tlirougout the country
have carefully weighed his case and
come to the conclusion that Gov. Hill
is not the man to lead the Democratic
battle in IHII2.—St. Louis /Icjiulilic.
Quite correct. Democracy wants no
ballot reform vetoer as a leader.
STRIKING workmen in Europe mani
fest a fierceness and savageness which
is not shown by Americans, even
under circumstances of greatest excite
ment. Some silver miners on strike
in the Ural mountains, Russia, set tiro
to the houses of the managers and to
a number of factories, and seven per
sons were burned to death. These
men in their blind rage doubtless
thought they were getting revenge
for years of oppression and wrong;
hut they wore wide of the mark.
Killing a few mine managers and
burning factories will not remedy the
trouble, while it will bring on those
guilty of these acts the condemnation
of Christendom, in addition to the
severe punishment of the law.
A COMPLAINING contemporary, com
menting upon the refusal of the ad
ministration to give reasons for the
removal of Chief Justice Sandford,
quotes the following passage from a
speech mode by Harrison in the
Senate in 1880:
I do lift up a hearty prayer that we
may never have a President who will
not either pursue and compel his cabinet
advisers to pursue the civil service policy
pure and simple and upon a just basis, 1
allowing men accused to be heard, ana
deciding against them only upon compe- ;
tent proof and fairly—either have that
kind of a civil service or, for I tod's sake,
let us have that other frank and bold, if
brutal, method of turning men and
women out simply for political reasons.
Let us have one or the other.
Well, what would you have? Is
not Harrison giving us the "other"
kind of civil service policy, "frank and
bold, if brutal," in full measure? The
frankness is a trifle weak kneed per
haps, but there can be no doubt as to
the boldness and brutality of the
things done by this administration.

The Modern Danger.
Mr. John Fisko, in liia historical work
just published, "The Beginnings of New
England," after dwelling upon the
growth and advantages of the English or
representative idea of government as
compared with the Roman or non-repre
sentative, says: "The inherited pre
datory tendency to seize unon the fruits
of other people's labor is still very strong,
and while we have nothing more to fear
from kings we may yet have trouble
enough from commercial monopolies
and favored industries marching to the
polls their hordes of bribed retainers."
These are the words, not of a poli
tician, but of a philosophical student of
history and of governmental tendencies.
They follow in a line of thought having
respect to the weakness and strength of
the several forms of "nation-making"
from the earliest times to the present.
First was the Oriental method, or con
quest without incorporation. This was
a mere extended slavery. Then came
the Roman method, or conquest with
incorporation but without representation.
I This was an improvement on the former
| and the cause of human rights was to
I some extent advanced thereby, but dur
i ing the many centuries it was maintained
011 the European Continent—and it yet
j lingers—tribute all the time was wrung
j from the unconsulted masses by the
1 >ower of might,
j The Roman is being supplanted by the j
English method, or incorporation icifh j
representation, which, so far, finds its i
| highest development iq the United |
States. It has put aside old forms of j
despotism and injustice, but, says Mr. i
Fiske, not "without unremitting watch
fulness can we be sure that the day of 1
peril is yet past." What if, though" we !
have a Government representative in
form, the representation is assailed, pol
luted and robbed of its fidelity by despots
who have learned to make sceptres of
money. It is a trite saying, but over
j flowing with truth, that "eternal vigi
; lance is the price of liberty." The pre
| datory instinct is still active, and here,
clearly, is the enemy in its new shape,
j and the sooner and more widely its pre- |
; sence is recognized the more effectually !
will it be coped with.—JY. 3". World.
Cleveland Ever; Hill Never.
Henry Watterson, the brilliant editor j
i of the Louisville Courier-Journal and the i
I most representative leader of "Western i
j and Southern Democracy, says, in a late |
: number of his newspaper regarding the
early presentation of the names of Presi- i
I dentialcandidates for 1892, that "thedis- j
! cussion of a leader for 1892 seems to us ;
| both premature and frivolous. Half a ,
: century of American history teaches us j
i that three years is a political generation in !
. a country and a system such as ours.
"Three years before < Cleveland's nom
l ination his name had not travelled fifty
' miles away from the city in which lie !
lived, and who, three years ago, when \
Benjamin Harrison lost his scat in the >
Senate lie had not distinguished, would ;
have ventured the prediction that he 1
would pass oyer the heads of Blaine,
1 Sherman, Allison and the rest and lie- j
come President of the United States? I
Facts like these baffle all calculation.
They show us how idle is prophecy in
I this regard. Our next President may be ;
hid somewhere in a cornfield, the cane
brake, or the stars. Who can tell?"
The names of Mr. Cleveland and Mr. I
Hill are those which are still solely men- 1
, tioned by the Eastern press for the
Democratic nomination. The Demo-1
cracy of the West and South seem to he
unanimous for the ex-President, and the
North and East nearly so. As for the
West, it does not like Governor Hill,
and its leading Democratic journals ex- j
press the general sentiment that he
cannot be the candidate of his party in
1892. Respecting the proposition to
nominate liim the St. Louis Republic, one
of the most radical of Western Demo
cratic journals, says:
"This is the year to tell the truth about
David Bennett Hill, one of the most
ignorant, narrow and unscrupulous pot
house politicians who even pretended to
be a Democrat or knifed a Democratic
ticket. Jle is not honest enough to be
reputable, and he has not brains enough
to conceal the traces of his subterranean
Tanner as a Surplus Spender.
Nothing could he better calculated to
cast discredit on our entire pension
system than the spirit in which a man 1
like Tanner comes to its administration. !
And surely nothing could he better cal
culated to humiliate self-respecting vet
erans of the war than the prominence
given by the aid of the Grand Army of
the Republic to a blatherskite and trick
ster like the present Commissioner of
Pensions. If Mr. Cleveland blundered
in treating with scant courtesy the claims
made on behalf of disabled veterans of
the war, Mr. Harrison will blunder still
more seriously if lie thinks that the
country will stand any such reckless
squandering of public money on all who !
have the ghost of a claim for a pension !
as Tanner and his associates seem pre- i
pared to sanction. That since 18G5 the
pension list should have grown from SB,- ;
000,000 to $80,000,000 is ;i sufficiently
suggestive fact without adoptinga scheme ;
of payment under which the expenditure j
would continue to grow with the lessen- j
ing of the numbers of the survivors of ;
the war, and which would result in j
saddling the next generation with an
elaborate system of making paupers.— f

Til© Law ('(lines Non© Too Soon.
The Philadelphia Inquirer, in referring !
to the accident at Plymouth last week by i
which four lives were lost says that the
law providing for examination of men
employed in coal mines was not enacted
any too soon, as was shown at the Not- i
tingham mine, at Plymouth, last week.
A number of Polish miners, so utterly I
incompetent that they did not know the
meaning of a danger sign, not only walk- i
ed past the warning, but removed it, so
that more intelligent men who might
have escaped were led into the trap. It t
was providential that the disaster oc- !
ourred when hut few men were in the
mine; otherwise the loss of life would i
have been much greater than it was.
One would think that mine owners would
fear to risk their property in the hands
>f such incompetent men, hut they seem
to look only at the cheapness of this
class of labor and pay no attention to the
•langor that goes with it.

May I confide in you?

For rear my dream come true,

No hint of coming trouble.

Made gavitation double.

Fast fixed upon the ground.
The birds fell down like feathered stones

The sky was all bereft.
Ten houses were before; behind me, seven;
And not a house was left.
It rained, and every little drop down rushing
Cut like a leaden ball.
The air grew denser; pressing, strangling,

And then awoke from out my fearful sleep
And now, what shall we do?

II Dangerous Retrenchment
What it Cost to Do Without a Daily l'a
It was the beginning of the year,and \
Mr. Archibald Wise had made up his j
mind that lie must economize some- |
where. After debating the matter for j
1 some time he concluded to give lip i
taking regularly a daily paper. Mrs.
I Wise ventured a remonstrance:
"Why not give up some personal j
expenses," she said, "instead of hitting |
upon something which will affect the !
entire familyP Cigars, for instance; i
I have often thought it would lie a :
positive benefit could you do without I
Mr. Wise was a kind husband and ,
father, hut, like many another man, j
once he had resolved upon a certain
tiling he was not easily turned aside, j
"The family," lie began in reply, j
"consists only of you and me, my j
dear, so far as the use of a paper is !
concerned. Our children, all under
14 years of age,are not exactly eager for i
news, I take it; and as to my getting ;
along without cigars, I could far more
| easily go without my coffee in the j
morning or tea at night. You can not
imagine the solace contained in a ci- :
I gar to a tired or perplexed man of
But Mrs. Wise still remonstrated:
"You are mistaken," she said, "in
thinking that the children do not need
the daily paper. Indirectly they do; I
find a great deal of interest and in
struction iu our paper with which to
teacli the children. 1 really hope you
will rccousider before actually stop
"1 shall buy a paper quite often," ,
replied Mr. Wise. "Of course a man ;
must know something of what is go- I
ing on in the world about him, but I
think a daily of numerous pages quite
unnecessary, and I must he allowed
to exorcise my judgment in the mat
It is an old saying that the remark, ;
"allow me to juugo,' puts an end to al- ;
most any discussion. Accordingly
Mrs. Wise said no more, hut it de
pressed her to feel that the friendly
visits of her favorite daily must be dis
At first Mr. Wise carried home a lit
tle thiu substitute for the old favorite
nearly every night, but by degrees
even that came less and less frequent
ly. When lie boasted to his wife that
lie really got fto news almost as com
pletely as ever by watching the bulle
tins and hearing men talk, she replied
ratherly dryly that men did have con
siderable advantage over women in
the matter of getting news without
paying for it. They could stand and j
gaze at plcasuro at great scrolls I
posted on the side of newspaper build
ings and glean a good deal from other
men. Yes, it was a real sharp way to |
economize without losing much, cheap
and perfectly nice, she supposed.
Although Mrs. Wise's manner was :
tranquil as a summer sea, yet her j
words ruffled and irritated her husband;
and if the truth were known, it was i
not all quite smooth sailing for Mr.
Wise. 11c did not actually enjoy sit- j
ting in the station or horse cars empty 1
handed, among groups of men, all of !
whom, except himself, had open pa-
pors in their hands; so lie resorted to
the expedient of carrying a folded pa- ■
per in the breast pocket of his coat,that
it might appear as if lie had a paper
which presumably had already been
One evening as he was hurrying to
ward the station, a little ragged gamin,
with papers under his arm,squinted up
into in his face and cried:

"Oh, you buy the paper aud find j
out," said the urchin, his phiz in the !
air and his little grimy paw held out j
"I have a paper," said Mr. Wise,
glancing toward his breast pocket.
"Bet you ain't seen 'bout the c'l
lision," persisted the boy; "it's a spec
ial in my paper; better have one, son
But Mr. Wiso haughtily eschewed
all counsel from such a source, and
On the train ho seated himself be
tween acquaintances, who looked up
from their papers to exchange greet- j
"Bad news this evening."
"Yes; quite a collision, replied Mr.
"Ah, I hadn't seen that," said his |
friend; "where do you find it?"
| "I haven't read the particulars," ;
said Mr. Wise, feeling the uncertainty
of his position.
"Will you allow me to sec your pa
perP" asked the gentleman on his oth
er side. lie was an agent for life in
surance companies, aud added, "I'm

Mr. Wiso realized the danger of tak- |
ing subterfuge in further deception.
"I haven't the account in my paper," j
lie said. "I heard the matter men
tioned, but can't tell anything about
it. Thought I might hear more from
you," he added blandly. Another mo
! inent ho adroitly chanced the subiect.
Next day, in going to anu fro, Mr.
Wise scanned the bulletins in search
of tho "bad news" alluded to by his
friend, also for an account of the" col
lision mentioned by the boy; but ho
succeeded in obtaining information on
Ou his way homo he encountered
the gamin again, who asked him with
his aggravating squint:
"Read 'bout the c'llision yet, mis
"How dare vou tell falsehoods to
help sell papers?" inquired Mr. Wise,
"Read there for yourself," said the
youngster, pointing to a paragraph in
his single remaining paper.
Mr. Wise took the paper and read:
"Boylston street runs into Washing
Without a word Mr. Wise paid for
the paper and strode on.
Arrived at home, his wife asked if he
attended the annual meeting that
afternoon of tho stockholders of the T.
Y. and Z. Railroad Company. It oc
curred a week sooner, she explained,
than had been expected, but Mrs.
Chester said it was advertised in the
leading daily papers.
Mr. Wise's face fell. He was not a
stockholder in the wealthy concern,
but it had been intimated to him that
at the closo of the meeting some ap
pointments would probably be made,
one of which might affect him favora
bly wore lie on tho spot to press his
lie ate his supper in gloomy silence,
then went to call on Mr. Chester, one
of the stockholders of tho railroad
I company. To his keen disgust and
disappointment 110 learned that his
absence had been taken for indiffer
cucc and the appointments had been
"But I received a circular stating
that the meeting would not taku place
until next week," said Mr. Wise.
"Yes," replied Mr. Chester, "so of
course did I, but circumstances were
making it necessary that tho meeting
1 should tako place to-day; it was well
advertised iu the papers," added Mr.
"Strange I didn't see it," almost
growled Mr. Wise, as 110 turned from
I the door.
i Mrs. Wise sincerely hoped this cir
cumstance would convince her hus
band of tho poor economy of trying to
get along without a daily paper, but
she soon discovered it had only served
| to make his resolves the more dogged.
About that time Mrs. Wise became
engaged iu the purchase of a new
dress. She was a pretty lady, and
was always tastefully attired, a matter
iu which her husbaud felt no little
pride. Hut when sho appeared before
lum in her new attire Mr. Wise ex
claimed almost angrily:
"Why, wife! I never saw you in
anything so positively hideous before.
What could have induced you to buy
such a mean fabric, and such dull, un
"Had I only known it," his wife re
plied, regretfully, "I might have gone
to Warren's and bought a beautiful
silk and wool fabric for the same
money I paid for this, but I did not
see their advertisement, and thought
it was no use to go up to their store,
where things arc usually higher than
anywhere else. I was limited as to
price, and did the best I could."
In another part of the suburban city
where Mr. Wise resided lived his cousin,
Mr. Herbert Wise. The cousins had
no great fondness for each other and
seldom met, except occasionally at the
house of Dr. Erasing Wise, an uncle.
Dr. Wise was a retired physician,
living in the great city where both his
nephews were engaged in business.
He was widely known and esteemed
among the profession, and had a largo
acquaintance, with whom he was ex
A man of rare principles, he felt that
lie should regard his nephews equally
favorably, but despite the fact of Her
bert being much more assiduous in ids
attentions than Archibald, he yet felt
drawn more nearly to the latter.
As these nephews were the old doc
tor's nearest living relatives, it was
perhaps only natural that both gentle
men had vaguo expectations that it
might transpire at some future day
that they had beeu generously remoin
bercd when tho old physician should
have done with all earthly wants.
One morning as Archibald Wise was
about entering bis oilice lie suddenly
encountered his cousin Herbert, who
"So you didn't think best to appear
at our good uuelc's last night?"
"What do you mean?"
"Why, I mean you didu't present
yourself to ask after him."
"Why, what's the matter?"
"How? You didn't see the account
in your paper yesterdayP"
"Inot a word of it! Did you?"
"Why, certainly. Uucle seemed to
think your absence somewhat marked,
I fancied, in the midst of such a largo
assemblage of friends."
As soon as Herbert Wise's back was
turned his cousin went hastily to the
nearest news-stand and bought a pa
per of the day before. It took him
but a moment to tindthat the old gen
tleman had been injured and narrowly
escaped death, iu a runaway accident,
and that many citizens had called to
congratulate him on having attained
his 80th birthday in safety.
At the large gathering the previous
night, when Mr. Herbert Wise was
about taking leave of his uucle, the
genial old gentleman remarked:
"1 am disappointed at not seeing
Archie hero to-night. Have you heard
that ho was away or indisposed?"
"Oh, no," replied Herbert hesitating
ly; "he may not have known of it."
"But I think he must," rejoined his
uncle; "the occasion was noticed twice
in lus paper."
"Perhaps he takes no paper regu
larly," suggested the nephew, who
seemed to have developed a sudden
aptitude for drawing conclusions.
"And perhaps he does," said the old
gentleman serenely, at tho same tiino
he thought a keen, forbidding thought
concerning tho man he felt had cast a
slur toward his favorite nephew.
Reflecting on tho subject later in tho
solitude of ids chamber, Uucle Erastus
"It looks to me as if Herbert might
have said that for the purpose of
alionating me from Archie. I can re
call having heard him speak slighting
ly of his cousin on former occasions.
I wonder if he thinks—"
But there the old man sank into
profound reverie. After a moment,
however, he aroused and added, em
"No, indeed! That would not bo
Archie at all! I'd be ashamed, indeed,
of a relative of mine who would go
without a daily paper for any causo
except extreme poverty, but I believe
there is no danger that a Wise would
do so foolish a thing!"
At noon Mr. Archibald Wise was
emerging from tho newspaper ollico
when lie met his uucle just going in.
in eager, sincere terms, tne nepnew
began to explain his absence the night
"I entirely missed learning of the
accident," he said, simply.
"I see you have your paper," said
his uncle, glancing at tho ample sheet
in his nephew's hands.
•'Yes; I've just been in to pay my
"Ami I'm going in to renew mine;
wait a bit, Archie, and we'll go to din
True to the latent manliness of his
nature, Mr. Archibald Wise told the
whole story to his wife that night, and
added what seemed a redeeming con
fession; he said:
"Why is it a man seems possessed to
persist in a resolve he knows is only
damaging and hazardous simply be
cause ho is determined to do so? I
can't tell; I only know I'm done with
trying to economize in such a costly
way as I discover is involved in doing
without my valuable paper."
A few years later, when Uncle Eras
tns' will was opened, it was found that
Herbert's Wise's prejudicial hints had
not injured his eousiu in the least. For
besides stubbornly apportioning alarge
sum to the city hospital, of which he
had long been the senior visiting pliy
siciau, the old doctor had further de
monstrated the contrariness of human
nature by leavingto his nephew, Archi
bald Wise, twice as much money as
he left his more ambitious cousin,
Herbert, who unconsciously displeased
his good uncle by a base yet perfectly
truthful insinuation, ouly its truthful
ness was fortunately concealed. — Har
