WILL SENATOR MANDERS01T EXPLAIN -
On what theory of government does Sena
tor Manderson maintain , M ho does In his re
port on the admission of Now Mexico to the
Union , that a people MO not fit to purtlcl-
psto in a st to tcovornment bocauio Co per
cent of Its number are Ignoranlt
Again , how does he make that declaration
conform with his frequently uttered views
relative to negro onfr nohnomont !
The Jfcrtill fears that the estimable senator
from Nebraska mhinterprota the constitution
and is inconsistent in his misinterpretations.
Omaha lltrnld ,
Senator Mandoraon'a position with re
gard to the admission of Now Mexico
will moot the approval of all intelligent
students of American history. Congress
Is the solo judge as to the fitness of any
territory to assume the responsibilities of
statehood. Among the conditions pre
cedent congress exacts from each territory
applying for admission Into the Union a
constitution guaranteeing a republican
form of government and population
equal at least to the fixed maximum of
ono congressional district. If these con
dltlons are right and reasonable
congrcsi may very properly take a now
departure , and require that no territory
shall assume statehood until at least a
majority of Its population shall bo able
to road and wrlto , At this late day ,
when education Is made compulsory in
nearly every civilized country , the Amor-
lean people can hardly afford to place Into
the hands of ignorant Mexicans the
power to send irro senators to the na
tional legislature. While the franchise
Is now entirely regulated by the states ,
congress has the power and Is In duty
bound to place a premium upon educa
tion by making reading and writing a
necessary qualification for the voter in
Tliore Is nothing Inconsistent In Sen
ator Manderaon'a position In this regard ,
oven whore a contrast Is sought to be
drawu batwoon snifraqo in Now Moxlco
and negro BUlfcago In the south. When
suffrage was conferred upon the Ignorant
frredmon It was coupled with amnesty to
the confederates who had disfranchised
themselves by secession and rebellion.
Nccro suffrage and amnesty wont hand
in hand in the scheme of recon
struction. It was supported by Horace
Greoloy and Charles Sumner , not as
an Inherent right to the negro , but as a
safe-guard against disloyal prepondorance.
It was believed that the loyal negro
armed with the billet would hold his
own against the ro-onfranchlaod confed
erate. Nobody contended that the igno
rant southern negro was entitled to the
ballot aa a part of his freedom , but ib waa
regarded as absolutely necessary to con
fer full cltlzjnshlp upon the negroes If
amnesty was to ba proclaimed to the con
federates. This was oightoan years ago.
Since then the negro in tha south
has made great strides In education.
Ho la as much above the average New
Mexican greaser , as the latter is above
the Digger Indian. If negro suffrage
was an outrage , as has always boon main
tained by the domocrata north and south ,
why should they now persist in giving to
the half-brood Mexicans the right to
govern the whlto people of Now Mexico ?
Ihe safe-guard of the republic is In the
intelligence of Ita cit/.3ns. !
THE TRUTH OF HISTORY.
Wo do not propose to enter into the
controversy over the former political
record of the now surveyor general of
Nebraska , Mr. Gardner , because wo are
supremely Indifferent in regard to It , and
3o not bollovo that It can in any way af
fect his standing as an officer. Wo only
fool In duty bound to correc1. the historic
antruth embodied In the op211 letter of
Mr. Frank MarUn concerning Mr.
jsrdncr'a political antecedents , which Is
lven great prominence iu the Off > aba
Tlcrctld , Mr. Martin tolls us that there
sas no such thing known in
.ho politics of Nebraska In1808
s ! "n war democrat , " because the L >
republicans were in absolute central by
jvorwhohning majorities. Lat us clto a
ow statistics. In 1801 when Phincai
tV. Hitchcock was a candidate' for dele
gate ' to congress against Gaorgo L. Miller ,
Nebraska was claesod as clomocritlo by a
air majority , but Mr. Hitchcock received
, 121 voten against Gaorgo L. Miller's
i,3)0 ! ) , whish gave Hlbhoock a majority
1,022. It is historic that Hitchcock's it
najorlty was duo to the vote of the war
lemocrata , who refused to support Miller ,
hen a pronounced copporheaj. In 1800 ,
vhon ! John Taffo tha
was republican can- ; o
lldato , and Algernon S , Paddock was the [
tohnsouito democratic candidate , Taffo
oceiycd .1,820 votes and Paddock
,072 , while George Francis Train ,
adepoudont , received 30 votes. TaflVa
najorlty over Paddock was only 748 , or ce :
icarly thrlty par cent less than that of
Htchoock over Miller. While the ro- U
mbllcan vote was larger In Nebraska In
SCO than 180J , yet the war domocrata
upportod Paddock and reduced Taffa'a
lajorlty. In 1808 , the year in which be
Ir. Martin that th
says was over- hi
rholmlngly republican , John Taffo , for a hide
joond term to congress , received 8,724 Bt " ' ;
otes , and Andrew J. 1'opploton , domo- Gi
'nt , (5,218. TahVa majority was 2,400 fltf
, Popploton was also classed th
a peace democrat , hence at
incrossad republican major- < | U
. Hut 2-lOG majority in the state nn
is by no moans overwhelming or even rni
aoluto. In 1800 , only two yo rs provi- I'll '
, David Butler was elected first state th ;
ivoraor over J. Sterling Morton by only Tr
majority , and In tha campaign far ra- till ] !

railway regulation , agafn.it hnd-grsb- fen
btng syndicates and In f vor of the
forfeiture of unearned land-grants , ho at
once cuts loose from the democratic
party and cannot possibly take pirt in Its
leadership. Conceding to Dr. Miller the
right to express his honest convictions
on questions of public policy ho
must roalua that his variance with
the cardinal doctrines of his party places
him in the ranks of the democratic mug *
wnmps. This position is mora Indepen
dent than that of the party organ-
grinder , but It also absolves the
rank and ) tile of democracy from
psying any , attention to his J'com
mands and demands. Dr. Miller
may be stronger with the corporations by
reason of this independent attitude , and
In the long run , wo presume , the corpo
rations will not bo ungrateful for the sup
port they receive from that quarter ,
TUB decision of the cabinet that the
cattlomonmustvacato the Indian territory
will not only remove the principal cause
of dissatisfaction and trouble among the
Indians , but It will restore to them four
million acres of their land , or an area
larger than the state of Connecticut and
nearly as largo as Massachusetts , This
will leave the Indians in exclusive pos
session of the territory , just as the law
Intended. Had not Senator Teller , when
secretary of the Interior , permitted theao
cattlemen to enter the territory , in direct
violation of law , all this tronblo would
have boon avoided. But Mr. Teller
always did have a great fondness for as
sisting monopolists and land-grabbers.
The Denver Tribune-Republican sayc :
This foul blot upon Teller' * record is moro
or IOIB Colorado' * disgrace. Certainly it waa
to bo expected that n western man , knowing
the rights of the Indians and the crooked
ways of land grabbers as well as Mr. Teller
knew them , would administer the Inud laws
honestly , Colorado thought BO when Teller
was glvon a place in the cabinet , She blushes
In shame for him now.

OTHER LANDS THAN OURS.
The wide-spread alarm over the rup
ture batweon England nnd RuisU owing
to hostile moremonU of the Russian
troops has subsided. Bismarck has
poured oil upon the troubled waters by
suggesting that Zulfikar pass bo made
neutral territory so that neither Ilnstla
nor England could control this Important
approach to Herat. 'Whether the suggos
tlon will bo adapted or not , the offa ct In
London has been pacific. At present
the belief Is general that all existing dif
ferences over the Afghan trouble will bo
One of the London journals offers an
Intelligible explanation of the Russian
advance. The ameer insisted on retain
ing ZulGkar.bnt was unwilling to fight for
Pendjob. The basis of the agreement
between Baron do Staal and Lord Gran-
vlllo , according to this authority , was the
permanent occupation of Xulfikar by the
Afghans and the cession of
Pond j ah to the Russians. Be
fore the actual settlement could
bo completed St. Petersburg diplomacy
claimed a now position commanding
Znlfikar. At this point Lord Saliibnry
took up the tangled skein of negotiation
and announced as the starting point of
his policy the fulfilment of Lord Gran-
villo's pledge that the pass In the foot
hills lying north of Herat should remain
In Afghan hands unless the Amoer
changed his mind. The Inference is that
the Russians have occupied In force the
position commanding Xulfikir , which M.
Lessar , owing to his familiarity with the
topography of the country , reserved In
his dpllmlnatlon proposals , Tholr prac
tice is to solzo a disputed point In
advance. Possession In tholr estimation
invariably clinches the argument.
The Indications as to the next elections
are watched closely In England. The
torlos exult because Lord Arthur Hill has
boon re-elected for county Dawn , al
though both the whlgs and the national
ists supported his rival. As this waa a
cabinet re-election , It was not BO fair a
test as was the election of a whig for the
really vacant teat for Antrim county ,
about a month ago. It la Impossible ta
muster the whole strength of a party to
oppoto a re-election under such circum
stances. It was natural that the mom-
bora of tbo house of commons who took
oflico in the government of Lord Salis
bury should bo ro elected by the consti
tuencies which hud trusted them once
before Only In the exceptional case ot
Lord Randolph Ohnrchill was there even
a show of opposition ; but the good fight
thera which Mr. Corrlo Grant undo will
no doubt commend him to another con-
stltuoncy , and Insure his raturn to par
liament at the general election. With the
certainty that parliament would bo pro
rogued within a few weeks , and that
there would bo another election by a very
different constituency before the oud of
the year , there was very little inducement
for a conservative to offer himeelf to a
liberal constituency , or for a liberal to
contest a seat jnat vacitod by a conaorva-
tivo. The election of another Rothschild.
In the liberal Interest , on Friday , to fill
the vacancy occasioned by the transfer of
Sir Nathaniel Rothschild to the house of
lords , though ho had a largo majority , is
without special slgnlficonce ; but it fairly
offsets similar conservative triumphs.
The interest in the next general elec
tion In Eaglandj and the Importance at
tached to It , are well shown by the num
ber of candidates already In the field.
Under the franchise bill aud the redis
tribution bill the now houao of commons
will consist of not qulto 050 members ,
and up to the ei d of Juno 975 candidates
had offered themselves , or had been
brought forward by local associations , for
English , Welsh or Scottish seats. Of
these 544 are liberals and 431 conserva
tives. Of the 443 English constituencies a
295 have candidates of both parties ,
81 have only liberals , 54 only con
servatives , and only ten are with
out a candidate from either party. In
Walea there are eighteen constituencies
with candidates from both parties , nine
with liberals only , and there are two con
stituencies still opon. In Scotland thirty-
one have liberal candidate * , six have con
servatives only , aud there la ono constitu
ency not provided foi. Wo have not
teen any statement with regard to the
number of candidites from Ireland. Of
the members of the present parliament ,
2-10 liberals and 108 conservatives seek re-
ilostlon by the constituencies for which
they now elt , or will como forward for
low or partially altered constituencies.
The Pdrnelllte-tory alliance In parlia
ment , as might bo expected , has raised a ecd
'urloua tempest , oven among the censer ft
vatives. Though a government Inquiry ftni
nto the Masmtrasna trials was refused , nid
in investigation by the lord lieutenant at
waa promised , which comes to the same atof
.hing , and it was accompanied by a re- si
lection < his predecessor Lord
upon , Sponsor th

irgan , regarded as lighloons ro- In

Mr. Gladstone said , some wojks ago by
'hen ho still held the reins of power in cei :
logUnd , that ho _ regretted ho could not qu

evidently felt that there were both arc

odd have Introduced ono If the vote on
budget had not ended his career as by
ramlcr. Now , shrewd men that they sou
, the consorva'ivo government have
mnd tlmo to Introduce a land pur-
laso bill ani no crimes act. Thlsaooth- one
measure for Ireland , which was ,
dorod to Its first reading In the com sup
ons on Friday night , Is really nothing lost
ore than the Bright clausjs of the land ma
of 1870. The eamo principles n ere ma

iSO , but owing to political complications pec

ros re-enact the old clauses and get- the Say

While Pare o'li i tha tiustoi loader , the
Ichsol Davltt U the hero of the Irish , nln
they nto making more than usual of < be c
him just now because of the expiry of his
term of Imprisonment for "trceeon-
felony" thU offense as natural as the Mr
they breath to Irish subjects of England.
Davltt was sentenced In 1870 to fifteen
yeats penal servitude , and had a tlcket-
of-leavo granted him In December , 1877 ,
when ho was let out of Dartmoor prison.
But In the opinion of the government ho
abused his privilege to labor among Ills
countrymen who had not yet been con
victed of treason-felony , and ho was ar
rested again in 1881 , and held in
prison as Parnell and others
were until May , 1882 , whotl ho got anew
now tlckot-oMoavo. This last ends with
the end of his sentence , and now Michael
Dovitt is ns free to go and como as any
Irish patriot can bo which Is not qulto
as free as a bird , either , The labor that
didn't suit the government , which oocn-
pled htm Intho tlmo of his first document
of that sort , was his establishment of the
land league , that most powerful organi
zation of the Irish people , which having
accomplished Its work quietly dissolved
to reappear as the national league. When
Lord Chief Jnstlco Oockbnrn sentenced
Davltt In 1870 ho declared with
that quiet emphasis which marks
his speech that ho ohonld
leave prison "a bettor Irishman" than ho
entered It , and ho kept his word , Mr.
Davltt Is a noble patriot , and learned a
great deal In his prison ; his bsok about
bli prison llfd is of marked Interest ; but
his head Is not so level as ParnoU'a , and
ho was qulto carried away by Henry
George's notions , and has preached land
nationalization to an extent fairly en
dangering the unity of the Irish cause.
The most admirable trait In hla character ,
however , has ninny a been his willingness

his present lusty condemnation of the

his views upon property in land no
sihomo could ba framed that would agree.
Many constituencies , among them Eist
Mayo , whore la his native place , Eilleu ,
are desirous to send Davltt to Parlia

consent to go , or Indeed whether Mr.
Puruoil will want him thoro.
The French zeal for an aggressive for
eign policy will Indeed be made of stern
stuff if it survive the payment of the
Tonquln war expenses. Tha necessity
whhh led the ambitious republic to walvo
an indemnity from China appears all the
moro unfortunate- Its finances by the
report of the budget committee of the
chamber of deputies , showing that while
270,000,000 franca have been voted , there
are . still 200,000,000 francs of liabilities
to ba met before the Tonquln account
can be closed. The repairs of tbo navy
alone , In consequence of damage donoby
the war , demand an outlay of 30,000,000
. It la obvious that the "Intelligent con
traband" of our civil war has returned to
his , ancestral Africa , and that bis Imag
ination , has grown fervid beneath Its
tropic . anna. Ho has been hoard from at
Kissala , E.jypt , via Cairo , reporting
rebel assaults on that place , followed by
a aortio by the garrison , who killed and
wounded 3,000 men , captured 2,000 oxun
and 700 rifles. This ia an achievement
unrivaled , so far as we remember. In the
history of sieges , and the Egyptian "con
traband" is entlrled to credit for Its com-
pletencsi and brilliancy. It Is a sign of
weakness , however , that ho descended to
details and exposed the fact that his 3,000
killed and wounded rebels only yielded
700 rliles to tholr victors. Perhaps ho
put it at 7OCO and the telegraph dropped
If Wolseloy Is capable of blushing , ho
must fool somewhat hot about the cheeks
when he roads that the people of Kaseala ,
little town half way between the Nile
and the Rod Sea , are not only holding
out against the enemy baforo whom he
and the British army ran away , but are
actually making sallies and capturing
everything they want from the enemy's
camp. The half-starved , half-naked
Egyptians who form the garrison of Kas-
gala are not likely so well drilled as the
regiments of English regulars , but they
probably have a better general ihaii
The dispatches from South America a
few weeks ago sketched the now plan for
gradual emancipation In Brazil , and the
fact that a system of indemnities was
included throw some suspicion upon the
low ministry which proposed the
aeasuro. A letter from S. J. Nabueo ,
president of the Brazil anti-slavery
loclety and a member of the chamber of
deputies , to an English anti-slavery man ,
'ully confirmn the aucpiclon. "Tho
