The Situation In Mnlnc.
Not because the course of politics In
Maine exerts a very widespread influence ,
nor because that state Is n vcrTimportant
factor in determining national results , do
the occurrence and the promise of politi
cal events there possess such significance
as to challenge general public interest ,
but chlolly because It is the personal bat
tles ground of Mr. Dlaine , and therefore
periodically a ijuielo to the political activ
ity of that gentleman , and in results a
measure , In a decree , of his Influence.
Air. Blaine is as usual credited with hav
ing a great deal to do with the action of
the recent republican convention nnd
liunco the progress of Maine politico is
being regarded with quito the usual
amount of interest. Predictions from
certain quarters of dissensions and of
combinations against the republican can
didates are suillclontly numerous , but
not in all cases unquestionably trust
worthy.'u rend that the republican
candidate for governor , Mr. Bodwcll , is
in danger of encountering a formidable
opposition from the Knights of Labor ,
notwithstanding the fact that hois a self-
made man who has always shown a
friendly disposition toward labor. It is
also said that a considerable part of the
soldier vote will be ngalnst him , al
though the soldiers have found in him a
consistent and faithful friend. The pro
hibition forces , it is further assumed , will
draw liberally from the republlciin ranks ,
being exceptionally well organized for
aggressive work. It would doubtless bo
qnito as well for the republican party of
Maine If the shadow of Mr. Ulaino's in
fluence in directing its action wcro less
prominent , or did not appear at nil , but
from this far away point of view thcro is
nothing apparent in tlio recent action of
the party that ought to condemn it to de
feat. The character of. its ticket is cer
tainly as good as that of the democrats ,
nnd it is not clear how the labor or tlio
soldier elements , said to bo disaffected ,
arc to gain anything by giving their sup
port to the democracy. Certainly , as to
the soldiers , the late course of the demo
crats iu congress cannot bo regarded as
Money and Homo Iltilc.
Money will How like water in the cam
paign which has just opened in Kngland.
The purses of the wealthy lory lords and
squires have been thrown wide open to
carry the election for Salisbury and
coercion. Titled nobodies , whoso only
claim on their party is their enormous
wealth , nro being placed in nomination
by the enemies of home rule , while in
some of the districts it is said to bo dilli-
cult to get Gladstonian candidates bo-
c.iuso of the moncy.power in tlio opposite
camp. The trouble with the homo
rulers is said to bo lack of money.
How much is thought to bo needed to
carry on the campaign may bo judged
from the fact that a half a million dollars
lars , subscribed by four liberals last week
for the use of Mr. Gladstone's candidates ,
is spoken of as a small sum compared
with the fund which the lories have gath
ered as sinews of war.
British members of parliament receive
no pay for their services This fact ex
cludes all but men of means from standing -
ing as candidates. All the elec
tion expenses , under the Eng
lish laws , must bo borne by
the contestants , including the cost
of registration , pay of election clerks ,
printing of tickets and canvassing of tlio
votes. It is a cheap election in England
where the successful member of parlia
ment gains his scat at a less cost than
$0,000 , oven where the contest is a tame
one. In several cases last fall the expenses -
penses ran up to $25,000 each.
The issue as made is money against
merit , and the honest voters of Great
Britain now largely leavened with dcm-
ocracy nro not likely to hesitate in the
choico. The great forces of society
may toll against homo rule at
the elections , but nn Indignant
public opinion rising from the humble
classes of English workingmen and me
chanics who owe their political enfran
chisement to William E. Gladstone can
turn the scale by an avalanche of votes
which will more than outweigh the tory
money bags nnd the millionaire and titled
nobodies which they represent.
The Imto David Davis.
The political prominence attained and
briefly onjoycd by the late David Davis ,
whoso death after u lingering illness oc
curred Saturday morning , was duo largely
to a comlmmtion of fortuitous circum
stances with Iho creation of which ho had
nothing to do , nnd which ho lacked the
political faculty to take the fullest nil-
vantugo of. Though unquestionably pos-
scsscd of the highest ambition that can
animate the American citizen , he was
conspicuously deficient iu those com
manding qualities of leadership which
attract a great following and hold men
in hearty and ( inn allegiance. Without
casting a doubt upon the general honesty
of his motives and his acts , his course
was nevertheless , so fur as its political
relations were concerned , of so tortuous
a character , and his tendencies were so
uncertain , that no parly could have with
safety committed Its policy and Interests
to his direction. l 'ow men in so brief a
public career wcro found so often sup
porting illfl'orent sides of questions of po
litical controversy , and while Ihis ap
parent independence gave him a claim
to public attention nnd won for
him alternately the commendation of one
or the other of the parties , It did not give
him tlio absolute confidence of miy , and
therefore wholly disqualified him for the
functions of a loader.
In consequence of thcso political pecu
liarities Mr , Davis became merely an in
strument which tlio parties sought to play
upon as their necessities seemed to re
quire , Indued , ho entered national poli
tics in this character. It is only neces
sary to recur to the facts connected with
the organization of the electoral com
mission to recall to memory the profound
Interest and anxiety with which both par
ties regarded the possibility of Judge
Davis , then an associate justice of tlio
supreme court , being a member of tite
commission , and from the point of view
Iho democrats it 'was an act of mas
terly shrewdness on the part of the re
publicans in transferring him at the vital
moment to the sanato. In the light of
hU subsequent course it is quito impossi
ble to determine what would have been of
the action of Judge Davis as a member
the electoral commission , but
is n matter .of history that
retirement from the supreme bench
that time was looked upon by leading
democrats generally as fatal to their
case , It would .bo au injustice to IMS it
memory to assume that had ho.boon a
member of that historic body lus action ,
would have been controlled by any other
than the slnccrcst convictions and the
purest motive * , and the belief in either
party which implied anything different
was without warrant or justification.
Judge Davis was unquestionably fond
of popular commendation nnd public
notoriety , and was at all times ready to
accept honors from almost any source.
His presidential aspirations wcro uncon
cealed , and it is not doubtful that their
recognition under any circumstances nnd
by any combination of men calling
themselves a party was pleasing to him.
This fact caused distrust , perhaps un
justly , though quite naturally , of the sin
cerity of his independent course re
specting political issues , and gradu
ally but surely weakened his influence
In public affairs. There is perhaps no
better example in our history than that
presented by the career of Judge Davis
of the impossibility of a man becoming
a great leader in American politics who
refuses allegiance to any party and dis
tributes his favor to all.
It may bo said , we think with entire
justice , that history will have little to
preserve In honor of Judge Davis beyond
Ills judicial career , In which lie fully jus
tified tlio wisdom of Lincoln In appoint
ing him to the supreme bench.
An Early Convention.
The republican state central commit
tee is about to convene in this city to
map out Iho campaign' for 13SU. it is
manifestly its duty to place thu party in
position for a bold , aggressive and decis
ive campaign. Thcro is no good reason
why the party In Nebraska , with its
25,000 majority , should not as.sumo the
ollensivo as early as thu party does in
Iowa , Kansas and other western repub
lican states. With her 800,000 popu
lation increased
enormously every
year by the swelling lido of
immigration a thorough canvass
should begin at least ninety days before
the election. In other words an early
convention is necessary to give ample
time for a state canvass.
In former years the committee has al
lowed only from four to six weeks be
tween nominations and the election.
Such a policy has often embarrassed
the party and frequently jeopardized the
success of tlio ticket. It is almost a fore
gone conclusion that Ilia ticket will bo
made up this year of men who can
stand the brunt of any polit
ical assault. Only such men are
fit to bo the candidates of the
party in the impending campaign.
Republicans from every section of the
state demand nn early convention and : i
thorough campaign. They want the
candidates to canvass the state and give
the people a chance to become acquainted
with and to canvass them. The commit
tee will do well to respect this sentiment ,
and respect our suggestion. Let us have
an early convention ; at any rate no later
than the middle of August.
IT is a little surprising that anyone lire-
tending to a moderate amount of intelli
gent discrimination should class Secre
tary ' ! Whitney as a politician , applying
that term in its best sense. Two years
ngo , Mr. Whitney was wholly unknown to
the country , and his local reputation was
only that of a second-rate lawyer. He
had never been admitted to the inside
circles of the Now York democracy , and
until the last presidential election was
not nn active force nor an estimated fac
tor in the party. But having money
and being the son-in-law of Henry
: B. r Payne , he possessed a value which
New , York democratic managers wcro
shrewd enough two years ago to utilize ,
yet it is not recorded that his usefulness
wont farther than his liberal contribu
tions ! of money to the campaign. It is not
questionable that his appointment to a
cabinet position was duo almost whollv
tiC the Payne influence , his brother-in-law ,
Colonel Oliver II. Payne , having very
shortly after the presidential election re
signed : his lucrative position as Ircusurer
of the Standard oil company and removed
moved to Now York for the well-under
stood purpose of securing au appoint
ment for Whitney either in tlio cabinet or
11r 11a a foreign court. His selection as sec
retary of the navy was n surprise to tiie
country . , and tlio doubt then generally
felt as to the wisdom of the president's
choice has not been greatly iliminishod
by the course ) of Mr , Whitney as the
head l ! of the navy department. Person
ally the secretary is a very respectable
citizen , but his record is yet to bo made
as a man of political ncumon nnd fore
sight , while his aristocratic habits and
tendencies do not mcrcasu las value as
an active politician. In this respect his
brother-in-law is much the abler man ,
and it Whitney
over hereafter figures as
a politician , depend upon it that the
wires will bo laid and their manipulation
dircctesd by Colonel Payne , who has fully
Identified himself with the democracy of

Our Western Dona Ynrels.
Tlio passage throughtOinalia westward
bound of a party oi scientists from
Princeton college eJn route to the fossil
fields of Wyoming and Utah calls atten
tion to the fact that Nebraska , Wyoming ,
Kansas and Dakota have proved an in
exhaustible treasure ] box of information
to the scientific world. Within the past
fifteen years moro remains of fossil ani
mals , birds and reptiles have been dis
covered and classllicel In the section
named than in the entire glebe bo-
sides. The geological reports of the
government are fillcdVith the recorded
work of American scientific men who
have worked In the great western bone
yards. European authorities have given
them credit for adding more facts to the
knowledge of the extinct fauna of pre
historic days than all their predecessors
from C'uvier down to Owen.
The western bonoyards or fovil fields
contain the remains of thousands ot
species of fossils , most of which are
found in petrified forms In the clays
and shales of what wcro once
great lakes or marshes. Side by
side , with them are discovered immense
palms and ferns , showing that the counj
try was once under a tropical cliniato.
Glnnt tapirs , rhinoceroses , elephants , and
curious genera of animals whose outlines
and characteristics were unlike- any now
discovered , roamed over what is i.ow Ne
braska ami Wyoming , sank in the
marshes and wcro covered up by the
sandy oo/.o. Thousands of years ago the
upheaval of the centre of the American
continent drained the lakes and sloughs
and loft their beds exposed to wind and
storm. The result Is what are called the
! 'bad lands " In
, whoso buttes and canyons
yens lie the fossil remains of hundreds of
centuries ago.
The "bono bods" of Nebraska are
found in the
extreme northwestern cor
ner of the state in the "bad lands" of the
While river. Hero in 1877 , Professor
Marsh , of Yale , uncovered a wealth of
fossil remains which made him famous.
Scott , of Princeton , and other explorers
following in his tracks have made Ne
braska's contributions to science famous
throughout the world.
A Hlo\v at the Jobbers.
President Cleveland has made many
mistakes as a chief executive , but he
made no mistake when ho notified con
gress that ho should decline in future to
sign any bill without informing himself
thoroughly of its contents. He has also
given his word that congress need not
expect him to go to the capital in tlio
closing days of the session and approve
bills to expedite adjo.urnment.
This stand of the president will meet
with the approval of honest men every
where. It is a linn , mimly and square-
toed position in the interest of the public
anel against that o'f the jobbers and
lobbyists. It may dehiyadjounimcnt but
it will iudelinitcly .postpone . a score of
fragrant items tacked on appropriation
bills iu order to be rushed through at the
last minute amid the din and confusion
of the closing hours of the session. In
taking this attitude Mr. Cleveland is
not following the fashionbuthc / is setting
a valuable preecilon't for his successors.
He is doing more. His jiiotico will have
a prompt effect in p'utting ' a stop to ma
turing schemes to saddle questionable
riders on the general appropriation bills.
The assurance that bills must bo
passed in time to be sent to the White
House , examined , item by item by the
president , and returned approved to coni
cross , will force a careful pruning of
these measures in committee of confer
ence before their passage. The president
at one blow has demolished the last
stronghold of the lobby. Let us give him
credit for it.
THE eight-hour movement proved a
most damaging experiment to the build
ing industry of Chicago , where it found a
more general and active support from
workingmen than was given it in any
other city of the country. Two months
ago a great deal of building that was pro
jected had to bo abandoned in consequence
quence of the demands of labor , which
placed the cost largely above the figures
that the projectors were willing to pay.
The effect was to seriously cripple tlio
building industry and leave thousands of
laborers and workmen in idleness. Now
a re-action is taking place. The Tribune
of recent date states that "within the last
few days some of the bidders have re
duced their estimates of cost by as much
as 1C to 20 per cent , and offered to do the
work for that much less than the original
bids put in by them. They can do the
work required for ono-cighlli lo one-sixth
less than was thought possible before the
eight-hour demonstration of six weeks
ago. " This simply means that men who
two months ago demanded reduced
hours of labor without a corresponding
reduction in wages , arc now willing to
accept the minimum price for their la
bor , and this lee after weeks of idleness
during which many of thorn have piled
up a burden of debt for Iho necessaries
of life lhat will bear heavily upon them
for many months to conic. Wo some
time since noted the fact that the money
lenders of Chicago were feeding fat upon
the necessities of the workingmcn of lhat
cily who had been forced by Iho labor
difiicullics lo mortgage' lliclr chattels in
order to keep the wolf from Iho door ,
and it now seems not improbable that
the pressing wants of thpso men may
lead to a conflict of lapor against capital
tence , with the almost iininodiato consequence
quence of culling Iho Svaces of labor In
many Irndcs below afal ( | living sland-
ard. In any event there are thousands of
the workingmcn of Chicago who in all
respects are worse off Umn they were
two months ago , and there has bean no '
compensating gain to the 'general ' cause

The senate has done an unwise thing in
voting down Its proposal to hold Its executive
sessions with opeu doors. It Is true lhat the
proposal was not wisely managed , as It was
in the hands of Mr. Itlddlebergcr. But there
were sound reasons for the change on its own
merit.1 ; , which should have commended it to a
larger number of senators Umn Iho thrco
who voted for It. As it was , both parties
agreed to kill the proposal. How many sen
ators of this great majority can say that they
id ways have resneclod Iho rule they now vote
to maintain ?

For tlio eggs that never hatch.
