Fremont. June 9. ls3.
iiie jncw york Tribune comments
at length upon the action of the New
iork republicans in settling their diffi
culties, ii ud arrues that the Dlan de
vised uy the committee, by which in
dependent republicans can attend the
primaries and be recognized, was both
wise and fair. The trouble is the same
in New York state with both political
organizations; and occurs in all politic
al parties; there always was and will
ue contesting iacuons wiinin every po
litical organization, which will strive
for the loaves and Ashes, and control of
the party. One of these factions has
to be defeated, and very often the re
sult is the defeated party is unwilliner
to ncquiese in the will of the majority,
but bolting and independent action so-
majority of the cases this independent
action is entir'.-ly unwarranted by the
facts In the case ; and is used by the
defeated partj as an excuse for gratify
ing the feelings of envy and disappoint
ment, incident to its deteat. This is
known and recognized in politics, as
the rule or ruin policy: notably, this
was the case in New York and Pennsyl
vania, when the Independent parties in
those states at the last general election
succeeded in defeating Judge Folger
and Gen. Beaver.' . In Pennsylvania the
leaders of the Independent republicans
conceived their mistake, and signify
their intention ot working with the
regular party. In New York, "terms
have been proposed, it appears, and
agreed upon, by which the republican
party can meet the enemy with an un
broken front. These lessons teach the
republican party that their differences
can. all be adjusted among themselves
if they are met with a spirit of tolera
tion. Among the masses of the re
publican party of Nebraska, we believe,
there are no differences existing, either
as to the methods by which the party
is being governed and controlled as an
organization, or upon the questions
and issues of the day. And although
there may be differences existing be
tween the gentlemen whom the masses
of the party have elevated to place and
power, we believe these . masses are
taking very little inte-est in those dif
ferences, whatever they may be; but
look upon them, rather as personal
matters of very little moment to the
TRADE AND PROTECTION
IN OUR COLLECES.
It has been the boast of our free trde
friends, which has been emphasized by
the recent free tra.e convention of
theorists who met at Detroit, that no
respectable school of learn iug iu this
country would place anybody by a pro
nounced free trader in the chair of his
tory and political economy, and while
this statement is not tr ire iu point of
fact, yet the matter of tree trade has
been carried to such and, offensively
aggressive extent at Yale College that
the attention of the country has been
arrested and directed to the matter,
and the eastern press have commented
freely upon the matter, so that Cornell
University has lately engaged the Hon.
Ellis II, Roberts a strong protectionist,
to present the protection view of this
question to the studeuta of that insti
tution, which will, in all probability,
result in the theory of trade between
nations, of the globe being treated in a
fractional manner by our schoo't;this
is a sensible step, taken by the Cornell
faculty, and is noticed with approba
tion bytheNe York Tribune and
other leading journals of the east.
A DEMOCRATIC OPINION.
Columbus, Ohio, June J4 The In
ter Ocean correspondent met Mr. Allen
W. Thurman, sou of the old Roman,
this morning, and after the usual cour
tesies, 1 asked Mr. Thurman what he
thought of the outlook.
" Don't ask me now, us I am head
oyer heels in business. I must catch
up with my work, as I have just squan
dered one week's good time in trying
to get the convention to nominate a
democrat for governor, but it refuses
to do so, and nominated neither , a re
publican nr a democrat, but a wiggler
in politics,' -
. t'What do you think of the democrat
"The convention was nothing lets
than a mob. Hoadley's nomination
was nothing but the work of trickery,
and everybody knows it."

the democratic ticket; how is that?"
is no democratic ticket to
support, and, as between Hoadley and
Foraker, I prefer to vote lor an open
and honest republican, who was uomin
ated honestly, than support a man like
Hoadley, who is not a democrat and
secured his nomination by the most uu-
blushing means means that would
cause one of the disciples of Book
waiter to blush. I am too busy this
morning to talk about this thing, but
you may put it down that I will not only
vote for Foraker, but I will work as
hard to elect him as I did to nominate
General Durbin Ward, and you know
I have been very industrious of late.
"How do the rest of vou bwurbons
like Mr. Hoadley ?"
"I can t stop now, but have only this
to say, you will find the woods full of
just such democrats as I, and we are
going to work for the election of John
B. Foraker, for governor, and all li 1
cau't stop his election. Mark my word,
we will bury Hoadley so deep that he
will cause no more trouble."
hoadley will stick.

The above don't look so wonderfully
unanimous and harmonious in the
democratic camp as our friend Dr. Mil

for the republicans of Ohio, under the
gallant leadership of Judge Foraker, is
truly flattering; the platform has the
right ring to it and with such a ticket
as has been nominated, their success is
WHAT FOOD WILL COST.
From the New York Tribune.
Bright sunshine and warm weather
have begun to make wheat cheaper.
The weakness ot the markets, here and
at the west, has been enough to arrest
attention and to cause heavy lofses to
many who have confidently operated
for higher prices. A t first it Wi.s im-
gined that the weakness m wheat
lght be out of tympathy v.iii the
collapse in lard, but it does uot ap
peal that the holders ot lard were also
holders of grain ; iu fact, it is stated that
McGeoch was a leading 6ellcr of wheat,
and declared las ability te make good
all his contracts in that product, even
while confessing failure in lard. Hence
it is suspected that, being relieved by
failure Ironi present pressure as to his
lard contracts, he has been in the bet
ter position to win back part of his los
ses by more vigorous attacks upon the
price of wheat. At all events, some
body attacked with vigor on Monday,
and prices at Chicago fell about 2 cents
per bushel. But it is not of much mat
ter to the publia what the immediate
cause of a decline may be, or whether
this or that speculator eats or gets cat
en. The larger and far more important
question is whether the conditions war
rant consumers in expecting a lower or
higher price for wheat.
No doubt it was a surprise to many
that the wheat market declined soo uf.
ter the publication of the Jure report
of the Agricultural Burp- u, which indi
cated that there buld be " a deGcieu
'cy in the nter wheat crop of 1883,
"as Compared with condition June 1,
'1882, equal to about 95.762,328 bushels,
"from which, deducting the increase in
"the spring wheat crop, there is a prob
"able deficiency in the 4otal crop of
"winter and spring whMt of 86,752,
"228 to 89,262,328 bushels.". Most per
sons overlooked the fact that this esti
mate took no account of the surplus re
maining unconsumed and unsold from
the large crop ot 1882- If tliat crop
was 502,000,000 bushels, and if 61,000,
000 bushels had been consumed for
seed, and 4.3 bushels per capita, or
about 234,000,000 bushels, for food in
thiscoun try there would still remain
207,000,000 bushels for export or for
surplus. "The quautiy exported is of
ficially stated; for eleven months ending
May 31 it is 139,825,258 bushels, and
for June the quantity will not exceed
the 6,6000,000 bushels shipped in June
1882. Hence there remains for surplus
from the crop of 1882 not less than GO,
It is true that stocks on hand were
reduced lower about July 1, 1S82, than
at any other time for many years. Per
haps as much as 20,000,0v0 bushels
might be added to the stock on hand
without making it undesirably large.
But the rest must be added to the yield
of 1S83 to ascertain the quantity avail
able for consumption or export during
the next twelve months. Now the es
timate of the Agricultural Bureau,
unfavorable as it was. indicated a
yield this year of 412,000.900 to 415,
000,000 bushels, so tint the probable
supply, even upon the basis of that es
timate, after adding 20,000,000 bushels
to the stock on band. The figures giv
en already show that the quantity ex
ported during the past year and the
consumption for food and seed have
not exceeded 435,000,000 bushels.
The average export price of wheat
for the least ye ir has been only SI 12,
and yet only about 140,000,000 bushels
have been exported, through the ex
ports from the last large crop that of
: 880 amounted to 186,000.000 bushels
at an average of about 81 UK Per
bushel. This suggestion that -we can
not expect larger exports tnan those of
last year unless we are prepared to sell
at a latter price, or the crops abroad

much more satisfactory than they
were last year, if so, prices here must
rule lower, or the quantity exported
can hardly be an great. But a decrease
in the quantity demanded for export
would add to the surplus to be carried
over to another year. It must bead
ded that these calculations aie based
upon the June report of the Uiseau o
agriculture which was commonly
thought more unfavorable when it ap
peared that the facts warranted, and
that very helpful weather has been re
ported from the great wheat-crowing
districts since that time. Hence it
does not seem unreasonable to believe
that consumers will have moderately
cheap wheat for the next yeaj, if the
weather cuntinues favorable until the
close of the harvest. But very great
changes might yet be made by drouth
Ilon. N. K. Griggs, whom many of
our exchanges are commending for Su
preme Judge, passed through Crete on
We know of no man with whom
the Republican party would be more
certain of winning than with N. K
Griggs. We know of his making but
one mistake. That was leaving his
fine law business and accepting a civil
position in Chemnitz, Germany. In
the face of his integrity and ability
we can forgive him all that. Saline
A discussion is just now going on as
to tho holding of the Democratic Na
tional Convention; whether it shall be
held in Chicago or Saratoga. The
former city seems to have the strong'
est adherents, and will probably sret
the coveted 7uaor.
Senator Thurman is reported as say
ing that the only regret of his life is
that he ever went into politics. When
the Democratic party reflects upon the
spectacle it has made of itself during
the last quarter of a century it doubt
