The American people are not likely
to bo seriously disturbed by British
bluster , iiml they will not bo diverted
from wimt they believe to bo their duty
to themselves by nny reflections which
momlMM's of the Httgliiih ministry or the
English press shall iniiko upon the
conduct or expressions of their olllcial
representatives. A London paper rep
resenting the government luis been ells-
poiud to indulge in monnnooH to thin
country in commenting upon the pro
posed ) > oliuy of roliilintion , and iv mem
ber of the British cabinet in a public
speech treated with a measure of deris
ion the idea of the United States adopt
ing any radical measure for protecting
the rights of its citizens against the
abuses of the Canadian authorities.
This is not the tone which English
newspaper * and public men should ob
serve. A fair criticism of the attitude
of this country is admissablo. If Eng
lishmen believe that the message of
Mr. Cleveland was a more political
move it is their unquestionable privi
lege to ssiy so. If they believe our con
struction of treaty rights is incorrect it
b their right to say HO and give their
on sons. But our sense of injustice islet
lot to be removed by telling us that
Canada , being n. province of Great Brit-
lin , will bo protected at every hazard
> y the imperial government against a
defensive policy of the United Statesro-
rardless of the true merits of the con-
rovorsy. This is the real moaning of
the utterances of the organ of the
British government , and they are not
alculatcd to increase the friendly re
lations of the two countries , or contrib
ute to the settlement of the controversy
with Canada.
There can bo no question respecting
the real sentiment of the Amer
ican people as to what should
bo done by their government
iU the event of Canada resuming iti
former policy of hostility to American
ntorests and rights. They believe in
a policy of non-intorcour&o , to bo extended
tended as the circumstances shall ro
quire. The question that divides then
now relates wholly to the expediency o
clothing the president with extraordinary
nary powers , which the exigency doei
not seem to demand. The imlisposi
lion to do this must not bo regarded 01
indicating a fooling in any directioi
favorable to the abandonment or tin
least rolinqnibhinont of any just claim so
up by tliis government. The country
is a unit in demanding that Canadi
shall bo required to respect every righ
belonging to American citizens undo
treaty stipulations , and if she fails tide
do so there can bo no doubt that at
parties will agree upon a policy tha
will most amply attest the national dis
pleasure , regardless of what the consequences
quoncos may be.
There is reason to believe that tin
real sentiment of the British govern
ment is not reflected in the Londoi
press. If the communication of Lor <
Salisbury to the Canadian govornmcn
has been correctly reported , in whiol
ho is said to have onjoinei
great caution in every move
mcnt , he evidently has in view a polic ,
of pacification. On this line the gov
eminent of the United States will undoubtedly
doubtodly bo prepared to moot the Brit
isli government half way. But there i
nothing to bo gained on either side b ,
bluster , and English statesmen and edi
tors will make a great mistake if the ;
imagine- this country is to bo frightened
onod from its just position by boastinj
and bravado.
Contribution ) ) Flowing In.
It i ? understood that the example c
Mr. Cleveland's ton-thousand-dolla
contribution to the campaign fund ha
had a most beneficial cifoot. Before i
was made very little had boon or coul
bo accomplished in inducing the ofllcc
holders to "chip in. " The urgent up
peals that had boon niudo in variou
localities wore not freely responded tc
Whether from an apprehension thti
there might bo trouble from contribut
ing to the campaign , or because th
average democratic officeholder i
loth to part with his hart
earned dollars , the fact wu
that subscriptions went to thocampaig
committee very slowly and in most nif
gavdly amounts previous to the stimv
hint administered by the president.
It was this state of affairs that mad
Chairman Brice and Mr. Henry Wattci
son tired , and caused these gentlemen t
make certain public avovyals whic
threw the whole democratic line int
momentary confusion. Mr. Clovolan
was given to understand thatsomcthin
more waa necessary in a hot politici
light than wordy messages to congrcs
and that it was especially important 1
give those enjoying the spoils an idem
their obligation and what was o :
pocted of them. The head of tli
ticket was equal to the occasion , an
with a few strokes of his pen not on I
convoyed to all office holders the assu :
unco that contributing to the campaig
is regarded as an entirely proper an
desirable proceeding , but also that tli
correct thing is to forward twenty pi
cent of salary. It is reported tin
those suggestions of Mr. Clovolan
have had their expected effect , and thi
the campaign committee is no long (
harrassed with a fear that it may I
unable to moot tlio demands qpo
it. With a hundred thousan
officeholders to draw upon , all of the :
understanding what is required , thci
would seem to bo no reason why tl
domo'cratio campaign from now c
should not exhibit some vitality , and
is certainly in need ot it.
Meanwhile there continues to boson
comment not favorable to the remark !
ble liberality of Mr. Cleveland in tli
matter. There are persons who insi
upon regarding the exceptional coun
of the president as an exhibition of po
Bonal solicitude not altogether crci
itablo to thn occupant of tfi
highest offlco in the ropublli
The opinion is somewhat free !
expressed that the action of Mr. Clov
land in this matter is an abasement <
the presidency. It certainly was not i
line with the JolTergouiun principl
but the democracy of to-i\ay \ ia not nni
rownd by any such limitation. At n
ovonta a most urgent exigency was n
llovcd , and at present the treasury i
the campaign committee is reported i
bo prosperous. There will bo use , ho\
over , for all the committee cnn get , and
no democratic officeholder should with
hold a contribution with the idea that
liis mite may not bo needed. Every
man is expected to do hU duty , the
measure of which is twenty percent of
ills salary. _ _ _ _ _ - _ _ _

A now forest of tall telegraph poles is
just now being planted on our principal
thoroughfares. Whether those polo *
are to supplant the unsightly old poles
now on the streets is a matter of con
In all probability both the old and the
new poles will bo nllowodto remain , un
less the city authorities take steps to
ntxito this obstruction. It scorns to
us that the limo is at hand
for our mayor and council to compel the
laying of the telegraph wires under
ground at least in all the principal busi
ness streets. Heretofore the telegraph
companies have sot up the plea that
they could not successfully operate un
derground linos. Tliis plea is no longer
tollable. Subterranean telegraph
lines are no longer an experi
ment. They are in successful
operation in all of the larger eastern
itics from Now York to Chicago. It
vill , of course , involve considerable
mtlay to plant the wires beneath the
> avement , but the companies that op-
i > orate telegraph and telephone lines en-
oy privileges which would amply rc-
> ay them for the cost of underground
onstruction. The overhead lines are
not merely unsightly and obstructive of
ravel and tralllc , but they en
danger public safety. In cases of
cyclones and storms , the telegraph
poles and broken wires endanger the
ivcs of people , and in case of lire
they seriously imperil life and property.
It will bo almost impossible to put out
a lire in the largo business blocks of
this city by reason of the network of
wires and proximity of high poles sur
rounding each block. There is also so-
ious danger of ( Ira being orig-
nated by the contact of tele-
raph and telephone lines with elec
tric light wires which necessarily must
be carried on poles because the intense
current needed for electric lighting
would be doiloctod into tlio ground , nc
matter how perfect the insulation of n
subterranean lino.
It is manifestly high time for deci
sive action on the part of our city au
thorities to forestall and prevent disas
trous loss of life and property by the
promiscuous planting of telegraph poles
and stringing of wires in the heart ol
the city. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Advices from Germany indicate that the
health of the great chancellor is in n stati
which is far from reassuring to his friends
It is claimed that ha himself is the immc
ditito cause of his own illness , by having dis
obeyed the Instructions of his physician , bu
it may bo more than suspected that mcnta
trouble is at the bottom of his sickness. I
Is evident that the young emperor chafes a
the control of Bismarck , and that ho i
ambitious to bo out of leading string
and to pursue his own course unhain
pored. If ho does induce the retire
mcnt of the chancellor ho will take a sic
which will put a stop to German progress fo
many a year , and which will do much to dc
stroy the unification of the empire so pn
tiontly and carefully built up by the old cic
pcror and his faithful counselor. Howove
much wo may differ about the means ntloptc
by Bismarck for the creation of a unite
Germany , wo cannot deny his wonderful sue
cess nny moro than wo can challenge hi
statesmanship. Having accomplished tli
task which ho hod set before him , It woul
seem the part of wisdom on the part of th
young emperor to permit the aged stntcsmai
to retain the control of affairs , especially a
his ability Is unquestioned. Latterly ther
lian been a disposition evinced by Bismarcl
to bo content with keeping the peace of Eu
rope , and permitting Germany to devclophc )
resources under the protective systci
adopted In 1SS2 , anil her success in that lin
has been most encouraging. Now If th
young emperor comes In anil pulls down th
carefully built fabric its full may involve th

It appears that the most oxtraordlnar

the government prevented by force Hoi

King Milan of Servlu m pushing Industri
ously ahead In his effortu to obtain a divorce ,
and the royal scamlnl Is bclnir discussed
everywhere. Queen Nntaho has gone to
Bucharest so as to bo as near as possible to
Belgrade when the suit for divorce Is heard.
Rlio is not ullcmed by her royal husband to
enter Servian territory. The prlnco hns
written his petition for divorce entirely In his
own haml. Ho says ho asks for divorce , not
for his own advantage , but for that of the
country whoso Interests arc compromised by
the queen's conduct. The grounds on which
ho asks for n divorce , and which tire nufll-
clout according to the Servian church , is that
of insurmountable aversion for each other
between himself anil thoqnccn. It Is not bc-
Huvcd the King will obtain his divorce , but
In liny CURO cither will have the right of ap
peal to the superior ecclesiastical , onrt , com
posed of archbishops and archiman
drites. The King's ' chief ground
of complaint appears to bo his
wife's deslro to spltu him In ull possible ways.
He declares that If ho wished to rlilo out the
queen always preferred to walk. If ho
chanced to admire n dress she hail on she
would change it at once , and that when his
army and himself were beaten by the Bul
garians his wlfo uddtossed hint n most in
sulting telegram , inquiring practically why
ho did not learn to light before he Hut up ns
Icing. She would also countermand royal
dinner parties to which ho hull invited am
bassadors ami other friends. It was hoped
ii feeling of national sympathy so strong as
o influence- the king would bo aroused in
Queen Natallo's favor , but this lias been
dlsuppoiutcd. In the place the king Is a
Russian , and , In the second place , Servian
lilcas of wives anil wifely obedience are quite
worthy of the Turks. The Servian peasan
try , who form thu bulk of the population ,
oblige their wives to work In the fields anil
take their meals apart. To them the lilea of
n wife , even though she bo a queen , defying
her husband in any way is a thing which
should not bo encouraged.

It Is natd that a marriage , or at least a
betrothal , has been arranged between the
oldest son of Don Carlos , anil therefore , of
course , the heir to the Carllst pretensions ,
ami the youug Infanta , the sister of the in
fant king of Spain. It is said that this nt-
tanipt to settle a dynastic quarrel which has
repeatedly plunged the peninsula In war , has
the hearty approval of the queen regent and
of the present ministry. Obviously , such n
union would only settle the dispute about
succession , now sumo half a century old , In
case the Infant king should die and his rights
should pass by inheritance to his sister , us
they would If wo accept the theory , always
rejected by the Carlists , that the Salic law
docs not obtain in Spain. In any event , wo
should then sec a state of things analogous
to that which existed In England at the
close of the fifteenth century , after
the marriage of Henry VII. ,
representative of the Lancastrians , to Eliz
abeth , the daughter of Edward IV. , anil
and consequently heiress of the Yorkist
claims. In their son , Henry VIII. , the con
flicting titles to the crown , which had ruukcd
England for a century , were merited. The
same thing would bo true of the son of the
Carlist prince and the infanta , should the
present king of Spain die without heirs. But
if , on the other ham ] , the young king should
live , this marriage on which the queen re
gent counts for" pcaco * and harmony would
aggravate the situation. For then the Carl
ist pretensions'would remain Just what they
were before , ondUheir representative , being
allowed to Hvo'inSnUn ; and build up a party
there , would acquire opportunities for In-
tnguo and conspiracy such ns neither his
lather nor his grandfather enjoyed. So that ,
from this point of view , the quocn regent
and her advisers may with the best inten
tions , bo doing after all , the worst thing pos
sible for the infant sovereign.

They are probably equally worthy of this

Thcro Is something rather amusing In the
profuse swapping of titular dignities and
decorations that has been going on among
the monarchs of Europe who have hobnobbed
together this year. Luckily these gifts arc
less expensive to the donors than the most
costly kinds of diamond snuff boxes , and the
amusement Is so comparatively harmless
that their subjects can hardly grumble. Besides -
sides , these exchanges of colonelcies and ad-
miralships and what not-givo great opportu
nities for masquerading in now uniforms ,
and a largo part of the enjoyment which the
young German cinpeior has thus fur fount

Prince Bismarck once remarked , when he
was in trouble with the Vatican , that "we

lapse of the Kulturkauipf sent Germany vcrj
far on the way to Canossa , and moro recent
occurcnccs have given what may bo taken as
nearly complete assurance that Bismarcl
fears , as much as ho dislikes , the Influence
of Homo In German politics. In view of the
coming visit of the Emperor Willinn to Khif
Humbert a proposed visit which is salt
greatly to have auiioyeel and irritated Pope
Leo the prince has written a private lottci
to his holiness , explaining the situation niu
saying that William will go to Homo solelj
for the purpose of examining the military
situation , and bccauso ho intends to sco al

Why the Sioux Do
Dr. T. A. Bland , tlio corresponding -
ing * secretary of tlio National
Indian Defense association , re
turned to Washington after a ton week's
trip through tlio oast. Ho was soon by
a ronortor , and questioned concerning
the prospect of an early settlement of
the dispute with the Sioux , concerning
the proposed treaty. Dr. Bland is em
phatically oppasod to the treaty , which
ho says , is a fraud upon the Indians.
Tlio Dawos act proposes that tlio Sioux
tribes shall cede one-half of tholr reser
vations , amounting to 11,000,000 acres ,
and receive in return 25,000 cows , 1-
OOObulls.agricultural implements , seeds ,
school houses and the moans of educat
ing their children.
"In other words , " said Dr. Bland "Ii
simply provides fcr the extensions o
thn treaty made by the government ir
1808. The exchangeis unfair , because
the government agreed to give the
Sioux in the 1808 treaty , just what il
proposes to give now in exchange for
their land. The same attempt was maele
in 1882. A commission sent to the Siou >
returned with the report thill
they had obtained tlio rcqufsito signa-
turos'of throe-fourths of the male adults ,
It was proven to tlio senate that tlio report
port was false , and a committee com
posed of Senators Dawes , Logan and
Cameron , of Wisconsin , who visited tin
Sioux , found that the commission had
perpetrated stupendous frauds. Snnatot
Dnwos then introduced n bill in all es
sentials like the otlior. It passed the
senate in tlio Forty-ninth congress , bul
failed In the liousp. Last- December it-
was ngnin'introdnced and advocated by
Mr. Herbert' Welsh , of the Indian
Right association. It was passed , but
the prospects of inducing the Indians
to yield their best land for something
that is theirs by right now is not
promising. "
' 'Who nro at the bottom of this move-
men IV"
"Tlio St. Paul , Milwaukee & Chicago
railroad. "
"Wlmt about the chances for war ? "
"There will bo no war , unless it is
forced upon tlio Indians. War to them
means the loss of their reservation. If
the soldiers arrest these who 1mvo gone
from Iho Pine Hidgo to the Cheyenne
agency , a light would probably result.
The Indians would not be to blame , for
they would be acting on the defen
sive. "
"What sort of an Indian is the
Sioux ? "
"llo is the host representative of the
gonuiiio American Indian now on this
continent. In bravery , intelligence
md moral power ho stands lire-eminent.
Red Cloud , their leader , is a man of
jrcat character and wise statesman
ship. "
"Do you believe that the Sioux should
liold their land indefinitely , shut It oil'
from the whites ? "
"I advised them in 1831 , should the
Tovornmont present an agreement te )
Lhom , that they should solo'it ' thu land
they were willing to part with and sell
it to the government. They agreed to
do so. This they will do when the gov
ernment has paid thorn for land previ
ously bold. An honest and fair agree
ment tlie Indians will sign. But should
it bo stated that a sullleiont number of
signatures hud been obtained to the
agreement in dispute , I would know
that they hail been secured by false rep
resentation , or not obtained at all. "
Tlio "Old Uomaii , "
fi'cw I'uih D'oHd.
Somo'discussion lias been aroused ns
to how ox-Senator Thurman , of Ohio ,
came by his sobriquet of the "Old no-
man. " The explanation is very plain.
Mr. Thurman Inherited this title from
liis undo , William Alien. The Migo of
Fruit Hill , William Allen , was distin
guished in politics and statesmanship
in the days of Andrew Jackson. Ho
was a United Slates senator contempo
raneous with Clay and Webster , Benton -
ton and Calhoun. When ho retired from
politics ho took up his abode nt Fruit
Hill farm , near Chillicotho , O. , and de
voted himself to ancient history. Ho
was familiar with every feature of tlio
Roman republic , its rieo and fall , and
ho could draw a parallel on short notice
between all things modern and all
tilings ancient. Ho could quote Mncuu-
loy and Gibbon by the yard. It was be
cause of this , coupled with his great
height , liis splendid physique and liis
powerful voice , that ho was given the
title of the "Old Roman. " When
brought out for governor in 1873 in Ohio
ho was regarded as a curiosity the
connecting link as it were , between the
farmer republic and the commercial re
public of to-day. After his death Mr.
Thurnmn , his "nephew , who developed
some of his characteristics , succeeded
to the title of the "Old Roman" in the
most natural way. But Judge Thur
man has never been able to talk of
Ca.-ar , Brutus , Calus , Sixtus Dontutus ,
Circus Maximus , Lucullus and Enobar-
bus like liis Undo Bill.

The legislature ) appropriated 30 cents per
day per man for rations ; heretofore when wo
received the money wo lived well and were
happy. This year the officers saw fit to
change the program and furnish rations and
they receive- the money. Whut Is the result I
About half of the tlmo our bill of faro Is
bread , fat pork and coffee ( without sugar or
milk ) . Once in a while wo gut beef for
breakfast instead of pork , and occasionally a
little rice and sugar ; but when wo get cither
of these luxuries for dinner wo get nothing
but cnffeo and bread for supper.
Now what wo want to know is , who gets
that 30 cents per day. Ten cents would
furnish everything that is furnished us.
Some of the oftieers nro pinking money.
Great dissatisfaction exists throughout the
entire brigade. At one tlmo an open rebellion
was greatly feared , and it may come yet before
fore camp breaks. The probabilities are now
that many of the companies will disband
wh'en they reach homo because of their mis
treatment. Wo think wo should not starve
oven it wo are so unfortunate as to belong to
the state militia.

somewhat stale , It should bo stated that the
reputable voters of this community are thor
oughly disgusted at the way things have
turned out , mid worse may e-omo of it yet.
Cruno got to Lincoln on u proxy Riven by
Judge Monllon , who was elected delegate ,
mid who wns said to bo a strong Leoso man ,
and would go if elected. And for Cruno to
attend that convention and to bo on the com
mittee on resolutions was very humiliating
to these who have known him intimately.
Since his success at the stnto convention ho
has taken courage , and ho is hard ut worlc
for a renomination. After what has hap
pened I shall not bo surpriseu if ho gets the
nomination , but that will not bo equivalent
to an election.

Twenty-four of the thlrt.v.six delegate's to

for a long time , lias boon very success
ful in keeping the democratic party in
poworhasa rabbit foot that oxortsmoro
power over some of the negro voters
than all the newspapers in Arkansas.
It is said that once ho murks that
foot across a darky's gate it is impossi
ble for him to vote the republican
ticket. Onei old follow who went to the
polls witli a republican ticket in ills
hands , who had been hoode > cd , began
to tremble ; his hand shookand , in fact ,
his whole body , as with ague ; the ticket
fell from his grasp and tlio negro fell in
a swoon. A great many are similarly
alTocteil , especially these who , as county
prisoners , worked on Mr. Worthons'
farm. Ho says lie lias not had the rab
bit foot out yet. and if ho lets it alone
there is a fair chance- elect a portion
of the republican county ticket.
