Polltlelans m living here tiom all pait <
of tlie country leport much inti-ieit
ccutorctl In tlie campaign being waged bv
Sen.itoi Van \V\clc ol Nebiaska. The Itleli
of his opponents nuking a special piotesi
against his appeal to the people to nominate
aseiiatoi at tliu polls ne\t month Is the
stiangest thing , tliuv say. In political annals ,
The sen.ttois ol both paities who have been
\Vasliinirion duiing the imst mouth , anil
those lieio now vvlio have given ( expression ,
say the nu-ie fact that. Senator Van \Vjck Is
willing nnd anxious to lot the people ' instinct
the leglslatnio by poptilai voe | jis to'vvho his
Huecessoi shall be oimht to give him stiength
with the people. Slnco Senatoi Van Wvck
has letl the war on monopolists In the senate
n zood tleal of Interest Is taken tluough the
country In hlsietinn , and curlosltv is enter-
tallied as to tlio stiength tlio monopolists
will wlold against him.
Talk Is being Indulged in of two somewhat
ranmikahlo concessional Investlgations-
the Cutting atTair and the surrender ot Oeio-
nlino. I'ho former It It takes place will in
clude the Scdgwlck matter as well as the
facts iclatlm ; to the airest of Cutting. This
subject would goto the committee on forelirn
ntfatrs If It comes up In either branch of con
gress , and would bo gobbled In by tlio house.
if an Intention lo do so was suspected to Hn-
irei in the sunato. Perry Helmont Is the
chaliman of tin ; house committee , and bc-lnu
u lii m Irlentl of Hecrctaiy Hayard would not
want the sonata committee on foielgn atfaiis ,
whose head Is Mr. Slieimnn , to have charge
of the Investigation. Hence ho will
move If he thinks there is serious
thought of It In the senate. The
objector nn investigation of the siirrendei
ot Ueronliuo Is moro to get at the bottom
tom of the Texas-Mexico border matter than
an\ thing else to n Its actual status and
what U needed at the hands ot congress tenet
not only preset \ a peace with tlio Indians ,
Imt the Mexicans as well , and to guarantee
Justice toourcltl/niiH when they go over the
line. All. Wellborn , of Texas is chairman ol
the house committee on Indian utT.ilrs , when
