THE Kansas republican state convention
has ro-committod the party to prohibition
by rejecting Col. Anthony's proposition
for a phnk ia the platform favoring a con

an emphatic refusal to 're-submit pro

On the 20th of August district con
gressional conventions will bo held at
Beatrice , Hastings and Columbus , to
nominati ) republican candidates for con
gress , and ono wuek later the state con
vention will meet in this city to nominate
a state ticket and presidential olectore.
Ity the time the local managing publi
cans have hold their meetings and issued
calls for primary elections and county
conventions l ss than four weeks will re
main for the discussion of the merits of
the respective candidates among the
rank and ftlo of the party. It is oven
questionable : whether any respectable
member of the party will bo able to take
part in primary CIUICUSBB and local con
i , ventions at this season when the farmers
are engaged in the work of harvest. The
choice of the 20lh of August for congres
sional conventions in all the districts
loads the uninitiated observer to suspect
a designing motive. It is not usual in
any other state to call all the congres
sional conventions on the satno day ,
moro especially where , as in the second
district , the call Is issued only six weeks
before the convention. It is not our
purpose , however , to find fault with the
machine , but rather to admonish repub
licans against blundering into defeat by
pursuing methods which have heretofore
brought the party into disrepute nnd
choosing candidates in whom the masses
have no confidence.
While Nebraska is certain to give
IJlamo and Logan from 20,000 to 50.000
majority , thcro is still a very deep-root

the coming election in the choice of
atato ctlicers and representatives in the
tale and national legislature ) * .
f { .The republicans of Nebraska have good
reason to hare distrust in the methods of
their leaders who have for years used the
party machinery for base ends and han
dicapped the .party with , corporation
shackles. The republicans of
Nebraska will no longer submit to bo
ropreicnttd in congress by dummies ,
jobbers and corporation henchmen. They
will no longer allow thu state to be dis
graced by ft man of straw in the execu
tive chair , a Jaadshsrk in the land depart-
went , a nopontity in the lieutenant-
governor' * office , and a vacuum in the
offico. The railroad

when wo s y that Nebraska ha * oul

of Nebraska have among them scores o
men of ability and known integrity , whi
have not worn the brass collar , and unless

The anti-monopoly wave that swept
over this state two years ago was merely
an aggressive protest against corporation
misrule through n corruptly manipulated
party. It was an open revolt against
dishonest and disreputable leaders , who
must bo discarded and repudiated before
the party can successfully appeal for an

The 12,000 republicans that voted the
anti-monopoly ticket two yeara ago and
last year are not to bo driven back into
line by the parly lash , but they must be

their demands for better government and
eputablo leadership.

No event in the annals of parliamor
during the past twenty years has create
moreintenioinlorestatnongAlljclassos tha
the struggle bctwoenjlho commons and th
house tit lords over the franchise bil
The resistance of the house of lords t
this important reform has aroused th
middle and working classes of England t
a pitch of excitement which borders 01
revolution. Two hundred thousand trade
people propose to make a concerted do
monstratlon in Hyde park in favor of th
abolition of the house of lordt , which is i
stumbling block to n popular rule ,
In this struggle with thohousoof lords
Premier Gladstone , if forced to the wall
may resort to the same method that TTOI
successful during the reign of Gcorgo III
when the lords resisted proposed reform
of Premier Pitt. There wore but Ml
persons in the house of lords during tha
crisis , but by raising .338 persons to thi
peerage the house of lords changed its po
litical cwmploxlon and endorsed the re
form by a largo majority.
Eor the last fifty years the house ol
lords has been merely playing with the
acrioui builncss of British law-making ,
During all that time there has not boon
an important measure affecting the righta
and interests of the British people that
the lords have not violently opposed ,
and that they have not adopted when
threatened with public indignation. They
viciously kicked against the abolition of
ilavery until they wore compelled to sur
render. They opposed every bill ex
tending the franchise down to the pres
ent measure , and they ended by passing
them all under the strong menace of the
commons , For long years they fought
friah emancipation and JowLih emanci
pation , but they were compelled to capit-
jlato. They showed their tooth when
.ho corn laws were repealed , but they did
lot dare to resist when the order to BUT-
ender was given by the duke of Wei-
ington. Declaring that they would ncv-
ir consent to the bill to abolish the state
ihurch in Ireland , they consented.
While this resistance to progress and
eform on the part of the house of lords
IBS been extremely irksome and some-
imes very costly , the British people
iavo got used TO it in a sort of way as
nsoparablo from their political system.
Vhon any measure of importance is do-
landed they know that the lords will
eaist , a d also that the lords will sub-
lit , and they await the end with as
luch patience as they can command.
IT is moro than probable that some
ompromiso will ho reached between
iladstpno and tha house of lords on the
ranchiso bill. The lords did not throw
10 bill out. They simply amended it so
iat it should not come into operation
ntil there had been n redistribution of
iats. Mr. Gladstone now promises that
they will pass the franchise bill ho w.ll
itroduce a redistribution bill this year at
i autumn session. The difficulty with
10 lords is that they are by n" means
ire the redistribution bill will bo any
.ore acceptable than the franchise bill ,
id If they lot the franchise bill pass they
ill bo absolutely helpless about securing
ly change in it. They therefore ask to

ie provinces are straining on the leash ,
their eagerness to open a campaign
; ainat the house of lords , and Mr. Glad-
ano haa indicated not very obscurely ,
at .ho will not bo sorry to BOO it started
the necessity should ariso. Opinion is
vldod as to whether a compromise may

to immediately stop the agitation and
0 studious in pointing out that the lords
vo not finally rejected the bill , even
r the present session ; that their vote
tha other night merely postponed the I '
iding of the measure for that particular
{ ht ; that the measure , therefore , is not
ad , but in a state of suspended anima
tion , and that if Gladstone will uvon
t offer a decent compromise the bill can
taicon up and disposed of. Another

1 incident In the franchise debate in I
i lords commented upon by everybody c
nhowing a remarkable change in the
rit of the timcn is the support , of thn

m bill waa opposed by tvronty-one
Voconm.vo to the latest advices war
; ween Franco and China is almost in-
table. When Franco began her war of
> rcEsoii ! in Anam , sympathy was genor-
f with China. The territories invaded
cd allegiance to the latter , and their
oreign received his investiture from

tor taken a srtong stand at the outset
1 informed Franco that it would not
/nit conquests from Ita feudatory , at
i same time backing up the intimation
th n display of force in Tonquln , It is
sonublo to suppose that its course
uld have received general approval. o
0 only thin ? that would have inter-
od with this is the fear of Chinese up-
ng in the treaty ports against foreign-
in general ; but it may bo taken for
ntod that , had the government of the
irory kingdom gene to war iu an open ,
nly way , nations Interested in those
ts would huvo adopted prompt and of-
out measures to protect their citizens
in mob violence.
Jut China has punucd the most ile
us and tortuous path Imaginable , Aid

It is all a mistake to suppose that ii
Iluisla there ia no legislative body. Th
council of state considers and passes a resolution
elution upon every now legislative enactment
mont , and the czar , as a rule , sanction
the opinion of the majority. Everj
question , before the council adopts a resolution
elution upon it , is carefully studied by i
special committee. There is a poworfu
lobby composed of the titled , the rich ,
and the rings of male and female politic
ians , -who seek to influence the _ czar' <
Jegislators by various arts. There is nc
out and out plain and stiamtleea bribery ,
but the members of the imperial council
are not forbidden to possess different
stocks and shares , and they have plenty
of them , and draw heavy dividends and
interest. Each legklator , too , has num
erous nephews , cousins , and other rela
tives , over ready to honor the private
companies , corporations , and associations
by joining them in some hiph-salatied
capacity. Occasionally , even marriages
are concluded among the titled paupers
and monied plebeians just on account of
some bills pending before the conceit.
The projected Siberian railway furnishes
a good illustration of the methods of the
council. Twenty years a o the imperial
( rovornment decided to build that road.
Then the questions as to the route came
up. Ono special committee after another
was appointed to study the matter , and
scores of the government engineers have
made fortunes on the job. Especially
the question has been raised in the coun
cil , and always there has been found so too
reason fur delay. Three imperial ukases
were issued at different times , each di
recting a different route for the road , and
yet to-day nobody knows when or where
the Siberian railroad will bo built. Such
Is the power of the lobby.
The halls of the senate are also empty.
That august body , Russia's supreme

enJs that body of public sentiment in
vhich rcats their hopea of the nation's
lappy future , is furnished by this fact.
Chat there has been a good deal of un-
riendly feeling toward Diaz plainly ap-
iears from the severe and persistent ad-
crse criticism of his candidacy by & por-
ion of the Mexican press , and even by
omo journals of liberal and progressive
pinion. Ho was opponed bitterly by the
lerlcal and liberals both. The latter op-

The retirement of Iglcsals in Peru will

looked over his specks without saying a

looked up and down the s.reot and said :
"Where's John McGinnisJ" Then ho
went vf ith Arch brck to the poatoffice ,

BCFFALO , July 13. Governor Cleve
land has had many love affairs , but not so
much as a bachelor of his weight , politi
cally and socially , would be expected to
have. His love atltirs have all been of
the phtonic kind , and it is said by his
friends that ho has been incapable of
falling deeply enough in love to propose
to any cirl since he became a lawyer in
1859. When he was just able to support
himself ho became enamored of a
pretty and beautiful young woman who
wasa relativeof the late JudgeVerplanck.
The girl was not disposed to look fa
vorably on his suit , aud this made him
love her the more. She was quite a ilirt
and delighted to tantalize him by permit
ting other young men to escort her homo
from the old Esglo Street The
atre which was then the only
place of amusement of any account in
the city. The girl was comparatively
wealthy and looked down on Grover.who
waa a poor lawyer. After awhile aho got
to thinking fondly of him , and it is said
that they were engaged to bu married
when she was bken ill with a fever and
Cleveland did not recover from the
shock for several months , and though ho
has a bachelor's liking for pretty ladies
his friendo say that ho will never marry.
Ono lady became so infatuated with him
hat she proposed to him. Ho rejected
her advances , and it ia said that oho
became crazy and is now confined in an
Governor Cleveland haa always been of
a retiring disposition and moat of his
time has been spent in his law library
or in the company of bachelor friends.
Hia moat frequent plnces of resort
were the City Club and the high-toned
Buffalo Club on Dclswaro avenue ,
rhe-ro ho was accustomed ycats nsjo to
spend most of his evenings playing cards
ind telling or listening to stories told by
t cotcrio composed of the late John
Alien , vice- president of the Central &
Eudson railroad , and other unmarried
A friend of the governor told TOE.Torn-
S'AL correspondent to-day a romantic
itory of how a lady living near Pough-
ieepsie engaged in a correspondence with
.ho governor since ho was elected Mayor ,
> nd that a tender feeling had sprung up
i twoen them. Thpy had met but four
imes , once when Cleveland was Sheriff
\ fnw years later at SaratogaafterClpvo-
, nd was elected mayor and once since
ie has been governor. This friend
aid that it was quite likely that
ho lady would be married by Cleveland
f elected president , and that shn wonld
; race tholwhito jhouso parlors at his re-
eption. The lady ia described as being
charming brunette about thirty-five
ears old , with pleasing manners and
onsiderable propnrty. Inquiry among
ther friends verified the story , but none
no could toll thi ) lady's name or just
hero she lived , except that It waa m a
mall town near Pougbkeepsia.
