Cleveland's cabinet is not proving
altogether satisfactory to tbe breth
ren, many of whom think tbat it has
a leaning towards Wall Street and
the moneyed interests of the country
generally as against the "bone and

that, while the south is represented
by the three strongest men of the
cabinet, those who will probably have
the greatest influence in shaping tho
policy of tbe administration, tbe great
west is totally unrepresented, except
by Mr. Vilas, who is not far "out

Republicans generally are taking a
watchfnl interest in the new state of
affairs. As patriotic citizens, they
wish to see the country continue to be
as prosperous as It has been for the
past twenty-four years under repub
lican rule ; as good Americans, they
wish our republican fornfoff OveVh
ment to grow in the affections of the
people, not only of this but of other
lands, to the ultimate end that every
where the people may be independent
in thought and deed, free to develop
their God-given faculties for the good
of KAokind; as good partisans, like
wise, republicans wish the best possi
ble example of a democratic adminis
tration, so that when Fortune's fickle
wheel turns again, partiran pride may
be aroused to emulato a good exam
ple. In all of which there is nothing
mean or groveling.
Indications are, however, that
Cleveland's severest critics are to
come from 'the ranks of the democ
racy. And tbe music has -already
begun. It is charged tfiat the "heavy"
men of the cabinet are all from the
south; that -to New York state is
given two positions to be filled by
men of only moderate mark; that the
wonderful west, comprising, half of
all the country, seems to-be unknown
to the new president, and tbat be
needs take some lessons in geography
in.order to become better acquainted
with ?the lay of the land" over which
he has been selected as chief magis
trate; that California and Oregon,
Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa or.eyen Illi
nois might have given one satisfac
tory member to the cabinet; that
Thurman, the democratic anti-monopolist,
and Pendleton, tbe demo
cratic apostle of civil-service reform,
were not invited as councilors of the
new democracy ; &c, &c. As we look
at it from our window, however, it
seems that the main trouble is to
come ; democracy is practical ; and it
will not be satisfied with the -elevation
of one of its chiefs ; the rank and
file must feel and know what it is to
have a change ("you bet your sweet
life," says one of them in our hear
ing) ; civil service reform is too tbin
a soup for men who are hungry and
need solid sustenance, and many of
them are beginning to say, "Why,
here it is March 10th, six days after
inauguration, and 'the rascals' have
not yet been turned out. Why did
we vote for Cleveland? What are
we here for, anyway ?" We are in
clined to fear tbat tbe hunger and
thirst to which tbe good G. William
Curtis' referred last year will make
trouble in the democratic ranks this
year, and we beg of the brethren that
they will not crowd around the crib
so numerously as to crush the deserv
ing weak members.
Two Mem.
With Whitney and Manning in the
Cabinet Mr. Cleveland will indulge
in the unusual proceeding of taking
two men from ouo state. This would
not bo objectionable in some cases
and it would not be in this if Messrs.
Manning and Whitney represented
anything in particular that is de
sirable or bad been long enough in
public life to have established charac
ters by which all men might know
There are two men in this country
living in tbe same state whose ap
pointment to Cabinet positions would
mean somethings Thurman and
Pendleton are both citizens of Obio.
One of tbem is known from one end
of the country to tbe other as a sturdy
opponent of monopoly, a learned
lawyer and an unbending exponent
of plain and honest republicanism.
The other is no less distinguished as
a man of high principle and his name
is associated with the idea of hostility
to the spoils system in politics- Both
have been long in public life and
both are esteemed far beyond the
limits of their own parties. Both
have been made in a sense the victims
of a monopoly-bound and office
hunting syndicate in their own state,
at the head of which are the Standard
Oil politicians and at tbe tail the in
consequential Johnny McLean. If
these men had been approachable, if
they had been willing to throw their
influence on - tbe side of monopoly,
or if they bad been capable of mixing
with the petty spoils chieftains they
would not now .be .in private life.
They have been hounded out of office
by tbe lies and greed and money of
the most selfish gang of political
cormorants in America.
Mr. Cleveland was elected as a man
who was supposed to favor the im
partial execution of the-laws, who
would have no monopoly favorites or
speculative jobbers at his elbow, and
whose professions of a desire to re
form the ciyil -service were something
more than campaign platitudes. It is
of course too early to say tbat this
popular conception of Mr. Cleveland's
intentions is erroneous, but he coald
have done nothing better calculated
to make it appear well founded than
the appointment of Thnrman and
Pendleton to seats in his Cabinet
ihey are associated in the public
mind with the ideas which he has
been supposed to represent. Messrs.
Manning and Whitney are not
Chicago Herald.
In the house of commons the other

A gentleman of fifty-two remarked
recently that he had married when
yonng (twenty), had raised his family
and had seen them settle down in
life, well-to-do, and he felt a satisfac
tion over this which could iiot be ex
pressed. He believes in and advo
cates early marriages.
The good housewives of Columbus
are beginning to think of blooming
flowers, as the skies brighten and the
sun's rays grow warmer.
A republican who was twitted the
other day about being under a demo
cratic administration made a sensible
remark, as well as a literally truthful
one, "I shall have justc as good a
president the next fonr years as you
will have." So say we all.
Mr. Newman of the Union Pacific
force was in town Friday, and in
conversation with us said that he had
recently been over the western coun
try, including Washington Territory,
Oregon and California, and his opin
ion of Nebraska has gone several
notches higher. He gives as his be
lief that tbe next five years will show
the most wonderful development of
Nebraska interests, astonishing every
body who haB not had special facili
ties for knowing something of the
volume of emigration setting in this
direction. Already eighty to ninety
car loads a day are crossing the Mis
souri river - for Nebraska and the
west, and it is very safe to say tbat it
will not be many years till Nebraska
public lands will all bo taken.
The coroner's jury lsst week sitting
in the case of James Griffin the rob
ber of the State Treasury, who was
shot and killed by A. L. Pound, de
tective, rendered a singular verdict
indeed. It was got up in the shape of
a three itemed verdict two of the
jurors agreeing tbat the killing was
felonious and so signing and return
ing the verdict. Three other jurors
arriving at the conclusion that the
killing was unlawful, and so signed
and returned the verdict. One other
juror eays "I believe the killing was
not felonious;" and thus signed and
attested by the coroner this strange
verdict is given to the public. As a
.matter of additional news Maguire,
one of the robbers has made full con
fession of his guilt, and asserts that

It !b estimated by the secretary of
the state board of agriculture in Ohio
that the winter wheat is damaged 50
per cent by the freezing weather in
the south half of Ohio. This means
that 25 per cent of tbe total crop of
the state is lost Facts have also

lic by S. W. Talmsge, that according
to late advices from all tbe principal

Under tbe aboye heading an ex
change has tbe following sensible
advice with regard to advancing 'the
interests of a town. The suggestions
are all good and are-well worth the
consideration of all who have an in
terest in the welfare of the town in
which they live.
Talk about it.
Write abont it.
Help to improve it.
Beautify the streets.
Patronize tbe merchants.
Advertise in its newspapers.
Elect good men to all its offices.
Fay your taxes without grumbling.
Be conrteons to strangers that come
among yon.
Never let an opportunity to speak a
good word abont it pass.
If yon think of nothing good to say
about, say nothing bad.
Remember that every dollar yon
invest in a permanent improvement
is that mnch money at interest.
Never "kick" against any proposed
improvement, becanse it is not near
yonr own door, or for fear that yonr
taxee will be raised 15 cento.
In this department tho pcplo talk, and
not tbe editor. Each writer must bold
himself rcafty todefend his principles
and his statements of facts. "Iu the mul
titude or counsel tkere is wisdom." Ed.
