If the southern question affected only
the colored people ef the southern states
the electors of the north might be nieaa
ureaMy excused for urging that they are
tired of it, But it does not affect simp
ly the colored people of the south. The
issue is upon a question of national reach
The issue is upon the principle of the
equality of men befere the law and upon
the rights of majorities.
The southern question involves the
north as well as the Bouth. The south
would be rid of its ignorant vote by de
privingthe ignorant of the privilege of
voting. It would keep the laborers g
nornnt in order to avoid contests with
them. This was the spirit of slavery,
and'from this philosophy came the justi
fication of slavery. The plan is not in
harmony with republican institutions, and
if permitted to dominate must tend to
the overthrow of popular government.
The northern idea is, that the bene
fits of government should be open alike
to all men; and that the safety of gov
ernment depends upon the distribution
of responsibility and rights under equal
and just laws. That this responsibility
may be fitly borne, dependence is placed
upon the education of the masses; and so
popular education is made a chief corner
stone in the political economy of our
northern states. The tendencies nortli
and south are opposite. The contest for
supremacy is not yet settled.
On the one side the issue is for the tie
vation of labor; on the other, it is for
the degredation of labor. On the one
side, it is against a ruling class; on the
other it is for it.
How the national democratic party
can maintain its claim among people of
intelligence of beintr the party most de
voted to the interests of labor it is not
easy to see, unless the claim be asserted
on the ground that the interests of labor
are identified with menial service and J
nothing more. The national democratic
party is dominated by the spirit and civ
ilization of the slavery states of thi
south. It is essentially, therefore, aristo
cratic in its government and in all its ten
dencies. Indeed, the policy of northern
democracy leads to about the same result
as the policy of southern democracy, and
really in a way more objectionable. It
does not seek to eradicate crime and ig
norance, that men may be made more in
dependent and better citizens. It is con
tent to control them through other agen
cies than the schools. Sioiuc City Jour

THE B. & AT.
The B. & M. railway in Nebraska has
been industriously engaged during the
past two weeks, through its local agents,
in miking to all patrous purchasing
round trip tickets between points notex
cjeding 200 mile3 apart, the very accept
able present of one-half the regular fare.
This has been a great boon to the poor
classes along their line of road, enabling
them to pay a holiday visit to distant
friends, whom they had not seen perhaps
in years. The company may not have
lost any considerable sum on account of
this remarkable reduction, inasmuch as 1
th travel was largely increased thereby,
but at the same time, the company is en
titled to proper credit for this liberal re
membrance of its patrons. Leader.

If one half that the democratic press
of ihe country says is true, the policy of
a protective tariff could not be right in
times of war any more than it can be
right in times of peace. These tariff
shriekcrs never stop to rt fleet, that th
great secret of democratic opposition t
our present tariff legislation has its origin
in democratic hatrid of every .measure
inaugurated by Mr. Lincoln and his sup
pose s for tl a building up a scattered
commerce and an impoverished country.
WhenMorril, Wilson, Stevens, Fe.ssenden
and a host of men of that stamp, were
devising ways and means to preserve the
nation during the rebellion, the demo
cratic party then, as now, denouncen ths
protective theory; they said, then, that
it was a wicked devise, to rob and im
poverish the people; that party, has ever
since contended that such legislation is
wicked and unconstitutional, and its
leaders, with a few exceptions, have per
sistently demanded of the party that it
come up to the plane of actual British
free trade. "While Mr. Tilden lived, he
and a few long headed democrats, like
Mr. Samuel J. Randall, perceived the
folly of the democratic party assuming
ultra grounds upon the free trade side of
the question, or of permitting it to be
made a national issue, and this same
school of democrats will now, despite
Mr. Cleveland's message, prevent their
party from going oyer the fence on that
question if they have the power to pre
vent it. We are aware of the fact, that
all parties are willing to see the tariff
legislation of the country changed and
re-adjusted to meet the demands of the
times and Mr. Cleveland need not solace
himself witli the idea that he has uttered
'Uivthintr new. either upon the tanlr or
'surplus" question. Mr. Cleveland has
simply done what the captains of
party have caused him to do; viz:
emphasize to a democratic house by
single subject message, the democratic
necessity of doing .somtihing; that is all
there is to it, and the democratic press of
the country howls itself wild with dc
ugm uecause iur. uieveiana nas maae
tariff revision an issue with his own par
ty. The democratic press had better
omposc itself and honestly join Mr.
Cleveland in his, almost superhuman,
task of forcing his party to honestly re
vise the tariff, before it undertakes to
load the sin of omission upon a party
which has not been in control of con
grcss for a dozen or more years. Let the
democratic party show the country what
it can do before it commits itself, too
far, in denouncing a party which is not
in power. The trouble with the prcs
ent administration party is, it lacks the
courage of its convictions and it is
safe to say, all the readjustment of tariff
laws the country will get, at the hands
of the fiftieth congress, will be forced by
the republican minority which has
determined to present a general measure
upon that subject and force the present
administration to take its stand before
the country on the question.

The Accident of Fortune The Second

In theso days when so many men who were
born in tho gutter die in a palace, when tho

oughly comprehend the essentials which go to
make up gentlemen and ladies.
No one can say that in this freo country ho

one to become what every one seems to think

every one to become a man in its brightest

JTew and extensive discoveries of gold con
tinue to be reported from all sides, It is now
certain that the mines of Alaska are excep
tionally rich. In Australia, districts where
the existenco of gold was unsuspected
throughout the palmy days of tho diggings
have been found well supplied with the yel
low metal. In tho regions surrounding An-
gra Pequena, the recent German acquisition
on the southwest coast of Africa, gold fields
of extraordinary richness have been discov
ered. The interior of southern Africa, in
deed, seems likely to proye little short of one
vast gold mine. Considerable quantities of
the metal have already been obtained in the
Transvaal, and the large district lying be
tween the Limpopo and Zambesi rivers
Northern Bechuanaland is believed to be so
richly supplied that a mining company has
been formed for the purpose of prospecting
it thoroughly from end to end.
The discoveries in Alaska, which interest
us most, suggest the reflection that as the
Russians were so long in occupation pf the
territory without suspecting the existence of
these mines, there may exist in their own
possessions on the other side of Behring sea
valuable deposits of which they have no
knowledge. Gold mines of some importance
have long been worked in eastern Siberia.
Bust such a vast and thinly populated region
as Asiatic Russia may contain deposits of
surprising richness as yet undiscovered.

The English Soldier.
CoL Clark, of the Seventh regiment, who
has just returned from a three months1 leave
in England and the continent, had his eyes
on things military while across the water.
Soldiers are met so frequently over there as
to impress him with the magnitude of the
burden their support must entail.
The English soldier, he says, is a model in
appearance: lie is strong and athletic, very
erect, with a most soldierly carriage. His
uniform is clean, handsome and well fitting,
and when seen off duty, with a natty little
cap perched jauntily on the side of his head,
cane in hand and well gloved, "he is in ap
pearance the most distinguished soldier ia
the world." Distinctive uniforms add greatly
to the esprit de corps of the army, for every
uniform has a history and a record that is to
be maintained. While he deems the English
volunteers a powerful adjunct for national
defense, he thinks their organization and
system in many respects inferior to our Na
tional guard. New York Herald.

The charge that Maj. Haggerty and Tom

being an Irishman, made a stiff denial of the
accusation. "But weren t you born in
Ireland f asked his accuser. "I was," re
plied his grace, "but if a man happened to
bo born in a stable, do you call him a horse?
I am an Englishman!" cried the duke,
"wherever I was born." New York Sun.
