AT THE recent annual mooting of the

INDIANA is playing the game of poli
tics for all it is worth , duo to the po
sition that the slate occupies in the
presidential contest. The democrats
nro working Cleveland with a bunko
man's persistency. Their latest demand
is for the vacancy caused by the resig
nation of Mr. Lothrop , minister to Rus-
lla. General Donby is the can-
didnto pushed forward for the place.
It is claimed that the promotion of
General Denby , who is now minister to
China , would help the cause of democ
racy in the great struggle this fall. Un
fortunately for President Cleveland ,
even should he bo willing to fall in with
the demands of the Indiana bourbons ,
Mr , Lothrop's place is as good as prom
ised to an Illinois man. Should Mr.
Cleveland turn the mission over to
General Donby it would disturb the so
"ronlty of Illinois democracy. In either
ouso the president is between tlio devil
and the deep boa , and the appointment
is likely to bo put oil until the last mo
SOMKIIODY will have to use a sharp
stick and stir up our merchants to
como lorward more promptly and sig
nify tholr intention of taking part ir
the trades' display during fair week.
September C has boon selected for the
merchants' and jobbers' parade in con-
nootion with drummers' day. The
event will bo a big card for Omaha , for
the celebration is something in the way
of a novelty for our city. Complete
imocoss , however , depends on the hearty
co-operation of alt the loading business
men , and no merchant who has boon
solicited should hold back from adding
his immp to the list of participant * in
the parado. The time is short , and the
duties of the committee having the
matter in charge tire necessarily exact
ing. It would bo a great help to the
commlttoo if merchants would not pu
off replying to the invitation until the
last moment. The drummer boys are
enthusiastic over tholr ' 'day , " and pro
pose to show our city what a jolly tlmo
they and tholr friends can havo. The
country merchant will bo hero as an invited
vitod guest. He will want to see th
house with whioh ho deals roDrosontoc'
in the parade. It will bo evidence to
him that the firm is wide-awake and interested
torosted in entertaining him while at
Omaha. Mora friendly and cordial re
lations are established under the influ
ence of enthusiasm and creed fooling.
That is the reason why Omuha mer
chants should stop around lively nnd
make the celebration in which they are
principally interested an unqualified

Jfot the lenst interesting and
cttnt feaiuroof the Jowa republican conr
vcntion was Iho largo representation of ,
the agricultural interest in attendance.
Not only wuro farmers numerous among
thu delegates , but they wore there In
greater number than usual ns onlook
ers , exerting their influence in hohalf
of men and principles favorable to the
interests nnd welfare of the people It
wad a convention which in its composi
tion and surroundings illustrated bettor
than almost any convention for years the
scntimuntof Iowa republicans remvrding
the corporations , and while it gave
expression to no extreme or violent doc
trines , it spoho in a voice sullictenlly
clear and plain to assure the corpora
tions that they will not bo permitted to
trample on the rights of the people of
the state and unjustly oppress tlsiun so
long as the republican party is in con
trol of the administration of state affairs.
It is a reassuring circumstance that the
farmers are manifesting bo much inter
est in political matters. It is too much
tno habit of this class , not alone 111 Iowa ,
but in all the status , to give only very
slight and casual attention to
politics. The penalty of this neg
lect is legislation unfavorable
to the farming interest or the omission
of legislation that would bo favorable to
it , whiln carolcss or dishonest adminis
tration goes uncorrootod. Demagogues
who are concerned only for themselves ,
supported by tlio rabble of the cities ,
fasten themselves on the body politic
and grow fat upon the money of the
people. The corporations , with their
hirelings and boodle , run caucuses and
dominate conventions , with the pur-
pee fcololy of antagonizing the rights of
the people. The formers could correct
these evils if they would take an active
interest in political affairs , but
there is hardly any task more
dlfllcult than to Induce them
to do this. It is reassuring to find that
the farmers of Iowa are aroused to tholr
duty and have made tlioir power rccog-
So far as the spirit and temper of the
state convention may bo taken as indi
cating the republican condition in
Iowa , they show the party to bo har
monious , earnest and confident. There
was the sort of enthusiasm whioh is the
augury of victory. This spirit it in desirable -
sirablo and necessary to maintain
throughout the canvass. The chief
danger lies in over-confidence. Wo
have already shown that the
probable republican margin is
not BO largo that the party
can afford to give the enemy any ad
vantage which ho might win by supe
rior 7.cal , vigilance and work. The cam
paign in Iowa promises to bo very vigor
ous and earnest , and the republicans
must not allow their side of it to lack in
energy and effort.
The bill which passed congress and is
now in the hands of the president , pro
viding for a more rigid exclusion of
Chinese immigrants , will very likely
receive the executive approval. In the
present juncture Mr. Cleveland would
not venture to defeat a measure of this
character , though on the other hand his
approval of it cannot be of any great
service to him politically. The fact
will remain that during all the time
while the administration was ne
gotiating the now treaty with
China , admitted by democratic
authority to have boon in
adequate when completed , and moro
favorable to China than the United
States , Chinese immigrants were
swarming into California and no effort
was made to properly enforce the exist
ing law for excluding thorn. The ad
ministration was so intently bent upon
a now treaty , from whioh it hoped to
make some political capital , that it was
deaf to the appeal from the Pacific
coast for the enforcement of the pres
ent law , which was being daily violated.
Not a single olfort has been made by the
administration to stay the tide of
Chinese immigration under the law now
in force , and the democratic house of
representatives has shown an almost
total indilTeronco until recently regard
ing proposed now legislation.
The Sau Francisco CVtH , referring to
this matter says : "Thoro can scarcely
ho an intelligent person In the country
who has watched the course of Mr.
Cleveland , who does not know that ho
has trilled with this question , yet a few
politicians hero who want olllco profess
to believe that ho will help us to got
rid of the Chinese if ho can bo again
elected to the presidency. It is not
necessary that wo should go to the now
treaty to realize that the president is
not with us on this question. Take the
now treaty nnd examine it crit
ically , and it will be soon that under a
law passed so as to conform to that
treaty , giving Chinese the privilege of
'going and coming at will , passing
through our territory in every direction ,
wo should be worse oil the n wo are nt
present. The truth is , the now treaty
was made so as to favor the owners of
steamships and railroads , for by il.s pro
visions It would give them a great car
rying trade should a law embodying its
provisions go into olYcct. No person
need bo deceived in regard to Presi
dent Cleveland's Opinions and actions
upon the ChinobO question , for ho has
not inndo a single effort in favor of ex
clusion , but , upon the contrary , ho has
had a treaty negotiated which will Hood
the country with Chinese unless we can
obtain legislation which will protect us
without regard to the treaty. " The
people of tlio Pacific coast understand
perfectly tho'truo position of Mr. Cleveland -
land respecting this question , and no
sop ho may now oiler will induce thorn
to condone his past llngrant delinquency.
A numlwr of appointments and pro
motions will soon have to bo made in
the army , and it is said that as usual in
such cases a great deal of political nnd
personal influence is being brought to
hoar on the president in bolmlf of aspir
ing officers who are willing to secure
advancement by the unsoldiorly pro
ceeding of jumping over the heads of
The president is reported to bo very
much averse to this practice , which has
unquestionably prevailed to a greater
or loss extent for a number of years , aud
that .ho intends to firmly dls-
cotlntetmnco It. Ho ip quoted
ni saying that ho found the army had
been made the tonl of the politicians ,
and ho determined to stop it. In the
appointments and promotions to bo
made the president is understood to
have determined to nmko his selections
on the score of merit alone , obtaining
hin information from the department
'onimandors ' and the adjutant general.
It will not bo questioned that this is
, ho proper course to pursue , and if the
iollcy hitherto has boon generally dlf-
'eront from thlsMr. Cleveland deserves
jrodlt for having adopted the justor
rlnciplc. As ho said in reference
o a particular staff appointment that
ivns sought by a second lieutenant
ivllh strong political and social backing ,
ind whom ho refused to appoint , It
vrtiisld not have boon right to pass over
Irstnnd second lieutenants who have
orved from fifteen to twenty years
ivlthout even reaching a captaincy , and
ippolnl to the vacancy a young second
ioutonant who has served but six years.
Promotion in order is ono of the incon-
Ivcs to faithful and meritorious por-
brmance of duly , and the recognition
f meritorious service is essential to
'osier and maintain the zeal , spirit and
joneral morale of the army. The mili-
, ary establishment should bo absolutely
reo from political influence , and every
officer should understand that ho must
depend for advancement wholly upon
ils record. An impartial and strictly
nst bestowal of rewards is the only
> olicy that should bo observed in the
army , and the president does well in
adopting and adhering to it , if , as it is
claimed , ho has done so.
All Itcntly to Htillcl , Hut .
In an interview with a morning con
temporary , President Adams of the
Union Pacific is credited with saying
that the Union Pacific had made every
.irrangomcnt for the building of a now
in ion depot , oven to the completion
vnd approval of plans and the otnploy-
nent of a special engineer. But just at
the moment when the company was
about to begin operations the railway
commissioners Of Nebraska came out
with a now tariff sheet which had the
effect of a black frost on a maturing
corn crop. In consequence , the inter
view proceeds , all work looking to the
further investment of money was sus
Surely President Adams could not
have boon guilty of uttering such stuff to
gull the citizens of Omaha. The lly that
has been caught so often in the spider's
web will not fall a willing victim again.
The Union Pacific has too often boon
just on the point of building a now
depot for this city. Deceived and dam
aged by the false promises of the officials
of that road for years , Omaha will n ot
again bo hoodwinked by the honied
words of Mr. Adams. Does the presi
dent of the Union Pacific think that
this city has forgotten the tlmo when it
was coddled and wheedled by a mag
nificent picture of a depot promised by
the management on condition that
bonds and lands bo voted to the rail
road ? Does Mr. Adams imagine Omaha
can forget the base manner in which
the officials broke faith in the matter by
the erection of the present ramshackle
structure':1 : There were no railroad
commissioners or state board of trans
portation in Nebraska at that time on
which the president of the road
could hang up his excuse for betraying
the confidence of the people of Omaha.
Yet every year the people of this city
have had their ears dinned with the
stereotyped announcement that "tho
Union Pacific was just about to begin
operations in the erection of a now
union depot , but "
When Mr. Adams came into the di
rectory of the Union Pacific ho solemnly
pledged himself to erect a now depot
for this oity. Ho has not kept his word ,
nnd ho cannot justify his failure to dose
so by any such impotent excuses as nro
made in the interview with him.
GENKUAT- , DICKINSON
in the role of a reformer is the most
interesting conversion under the pres
ent administration , in view of Mr.
Dickinson's past course as a politician.
That gentleman's advent in the cabinet
was hailed by the spoils clement of the
democracy as the most reassuring evidence -
donco Mr. Cleveland had given of a
purpose to lot up somewhat in the
matter of civil service reform. There
was some dissatisfaction with Mr. Vilas
because it was thought ho didn't lop
off the heads of republican post
masters quite lively enough , and
this fault Mr. Dickinson was
expected to remedy. His char
acter as a politician justified this expec
tation , lie was never supposed , either ,
to have any compunctions about using
federal officeholders in politics , but it
now appears that ho has fallen in with
the professed hostility of Mr. Cleveland
to the "pernicious political activity" ol
officeholders. In the letter which con
voys this information , however , Mr.
Dickinson loaves a way open through
which the olllcoholdor who desires to do
political work may operate without in
curring any risk. It is to bo
hoped the postmaster general is
slncoro convert , but no officeholder
under his authority need bo apprehen
sive of losing his situation for pernic
ious activity in politics. None have
yet suffered from this causa , and in the
present exigency the administration is
disposed to bo more tolerant than ovei

ful scheme to m.iko HuiT.Uo the convention
city. It is argued from this , nnd bcc.uiso of
the belief that Doyle aud Wyllo are so-called
Cleveland men , that it w.xs a Cleveland vic
tory and a Hill dofe.it. Quo of the reasons
why this proposition c.uinot bo tufcon with
out some doubt is that the two gentlemen
named have been regarded as Hill advocates
until a very recent dato. It Is true that they
have been allowed to dispense federal patron
age for the two congressional districts
which they represent on the state commit
tee. These two districts Include the counties
of Erie and Niagara , in the former of which
is located the city of Buffalo. Wiloy has
always been moro favorably disposed to
wards Hill than towards Cleveland , and it is
only the question of the control of tlio politi
cal pap that induced him to stay with the
Cleveland element In the state committee
last spring when the thirty.lour members
were evenly divided.
Neither Jilr. IJoylo nor his colleague has
boon taken into the confidence of the admin
istration , nnd in spite of the fact that they
have choscu the postmasters In the small
towns around huro , and Hint their sugges
tions have carried weight in the matter of
the appointment of postal clerks and other
minor federal servants of the government ,
they were so little informed of the presi
dent's real intention that when they went ns
delegates to the St. Louis convention , they
wcru not only advocates of the nomination of
Governor Gray , of Indiana , for the second
place on the ticket , but they used all their in-
tluenco to induce other members of the dele
gation to follow suit with them.
They had reached St. Louis nnd were
howling Gray men until a very few hours
before the convention was called to order.
Then it was that William L. Scott , the presi
dent's mouthpiece , sent for them and hauled
them over the coals for their alleged infidelity
to the wishes of tlio great chief. The gen
tlemen admitted that they had been working
in ignorance ; they aj > elegized for their
course , asked for instructions , and Immedi
ately changed their allegiance , dropped Gray
and followed the Thnrman standard. This
incident goes to show that Mr. Cleveland's
lieutenants in the western end of the state
uro not always posted as to liis political
wishes. It shows another thing , and that is
the utter lack of organization in the demo
cratic party iu this neck of the woods.
Four years ago by the middle of August
the pjrty was thoroughly organised. Clubs
under various names mot nightly , and
throughout the state there were gatherings
and offshoots of thcso institutions , all work
ing for democratic success. The campaign
was conducted principally by the Hon. Dan
iel N. Lookwood , xvho , at that time , was iu
the congressional race and was defeated by
Major John M. Farquhar , the present rep
resentative in congress from the principal
Buffalo district. Lockwood worked hard ,
aud it was , perhaps , duo to him as much us
to any other ouo man tlmt the nom
inal republican majority in Brio county was
reduced about llfty per cent. For nearly
two years after the inauguration of Mr.
Cleveland Mr. Lockwood was Ignored on-
tlroly. nnd his claims for consideration ro-
colvod no attention whatever at the hands of
the man for whom ho lind done so much.
Finally , the leader of western New York
democracy was hidden away in on obscure
plaoo. which pays him a pittanca in return
for his legal services for the government.
Mr. Lockwood is absolutely out"of politics.
Ho has resigned his connection with the va
rious clubs ; ho has tu > clineil emphatically to
run for congress , and U simply attending to
his duties as United States district attorney.
It Is true that some of Mr. Lockwood's as
sistants arc at work In a mild way for the
ticket headed by Grover Cleveland , but their
activity is not of n dangerous character , and
they simply servo to prevent the charge
against Lockwood that ho is sulking iu his
On the other hand , Erie county never saw
so much activity and such thorough earnest
ness uraong the republicans as is shown In
this year of graoo. Every ward , every pre
cinct , almost every block in the city lias a
ropubllc.ui club working hard to keep up the
enthusiasm. Night after night meetings are
hold in all sections of the city , the tariff Is
Intelligently discussed by the many thinking
workmen , and politics , so far ns the republi
can party is concerned , lire at fever heat-
The number of desertiovw'from the ranks of
the democrats anil mugwumps to the party of
protection Is simply nmazing. Day after dny
new recruits to the Harrison banner nro re
ported. The First wnrd of the city , which
has always been considered as reliably dem
ocratic by a majority ranging from ] ,0xi ; up
to almost any llguro required , seems to have
gone wild on the subject of protection. It is
peopled by a class of men who earn
their living in the manufactories
which abound there. They realise fully
what free trade means to them , and
they are not free traders by any moans.
Heretofore the straddle of the democracy on
the suoject of the tariff has kept the demo
crats in this ward together , but now thnt the
mask has been removed nnd that the bat
tery of British products is uncovered , they
see that the inevitable outcome of the sue-
csss of the democratic ticket means depres
sion in the interests in which they nro em
ployed. From all that can be gathered from
careful inquiries among the leaders in this
wnrd there seoais to bo no question but that
Mr. Cleveland will lese it by a good square
The situation is the same not only through
out the nty , but throughout nil of the coun
try towns of Erlo county. Farmers are pro
verbially slow about changing their poll Hull
convictions , but ivhon they learn the Cleve
land-Mills idea moans opcnlncup the markets
in which they dispose of their products to
the agricultural population in Canada just
across the river , and within easy ae-cess of
Buffalo , they begin to realize that
the republican policy cof protection Is as
much of u benefit to tUcui as It U to the man-
ufa turor in the oity and his employes.

The most sanguine democrats iu Buffalo who
know anything of the situation admit that
Harrison's majority In this sntno county In
18iS will bo nt least three thousand , and re
publicans are confident that it will exceed
five thousand. ! ! In Chautnuquu , Cattaraugus ,

democratic dynasty by her sister counties In
the west , and there Is every Indication that
throughout the whole stuto as fur cost as the
Hudson river , the re-publicans will make
such gains us will insure carrying the state
by a majority of from thirty to fifty thousand.

Mr. W. J. Council said to a reporter that
certain nnwsp.ipcrs had misquoted his re
marks on Grover Cleveland in his speech at
Syracuse , during the Otoo county republican
convention. In the course of his speech ho
reviewed the history of General Harrison as
compared to that of Cleveland ; how Harrison
left wife and children to respond to his coun
try's call la her hour of peril , while Cleve
land , who was an ublebodicrt man without
family incumbr.incn or care , sent a substi
tute to the front whom ho subiequently per
mitted to die in nn nlmshouso. The state
ment which has been referred to did not In
any wise rellcct upon the parents of Grover
Cleveland , a fact which can bo verified by
several hundred citizens of Otoo county ,
"What I said was this ; 'General Harrison
is a noble and legitimate descjiid'int of illus
trious aneeslcr.s ; Grovur Cleveland is the
illustrious ancestor of ignoble and Illegiti
mate descendants. '
Opinions of Senator Pmldock.
Senator A. S. Paddock came in from the

his homo in Beatrice on private business.
In oonvors.ttlon with a Ben reporter ho ad

Harrison's election is already assured and the
voting will bo n moro formality.
Ho thinks that when the republican tin-
tioual convention at Chicago nominated Harrison
risen and Morton the deletrates bullded bat
ter than they know. Harrison Is growing in
popularity every day. His speeches are the
utterances of a statesman , and uro distin
guished by breadth of mind , good judgment
and high patriotism.
The democrats , ho says , appreciate this
and arc very antlve In the oast. However ,
the senator believes their efforts will bo In

A Fancc-Climbing Alligator ,
Philadelphia- Times : An alligator at
tbooo" has accomplished a foot un
precedented in the history of the ani
mal it has climbed over a fence live
foot high. The night watchman at the
garden was making his midnight journey -
noy through the thirty-seven acres of
ground on Friday night , when ho heard
a rustling in the grass near the beaver
pond. lie Hashed his dark lantern on
the spot , and there , making his way for
the enclosure of the busy little beavers ,
was the scaly monster.
The night watchman immediately
gave the alarm , and boon half a do/.on
attaches of the place wore on the spot.
On being discovered the alligator re
traced his stops and got in a Binall pool
of water near the pelican enclosure. A
guard was placed over the pond , and
the animal kept there until the morn
ing , when the job of getting him back
in his pond was attempted.
Head-keeper Byrne Is possessed of
considerable skill as a lariat thrower ,
and ho soon had the noose of a stout
rope over the minimi's head. It wns
pulled tight and nn attempt was made
to drag the alligator over the ground.
it was found thut the rope was in-
Euflicient , nnd several more were at
tached to ditlurent parts of his body ,
and "his lordship" was again a pris
Meanwhile the keepers had been pu/-
zling their brains over the problem as
to how the animal had succeeded in
getting out of the enclosure , which is
csaiToundod on nil sides by a fence live
feet high. After a close examination
no breaks could IK ) found in the fence ,
and they were about giving it up in de
spair , when Ilead-koopor Byrne sug
gested the Idea of the animal climbing
over the fence. The idea was scouted
by manybut a search was made nnd the
problem solved. In the northwest cor
ner of the enclosure the fence was
found to bo scraped and covered with
mud nil the way up. The animal was
assisted in the ascent by the wire
nutting on the west and of the fonco.
