THE extent to which Dakota is attract

one item in the report of Governor

Mrange. Dakota is part of that great
bolt of wheat land which stretches from

AMOKO other absurd inventions , the
German democratic daily of this citj
lias several times repeated the baseless
charge that W. J. Connell is responsible
for the provision of the charter which
places the appointment of the police
commission in the hands of the gov
ernor. This is not a very serious in
dictment oven if the charge wore true
except so far as it places Mr. Council in
the ( also position of refusing to trust
the people with the election of this
commission. Hut the charge is abso
lutely false. The charter as drawn bj
Mr. Council and adopted by the committee
teeof fifteen , provided for the appoint
ment of the commission by the mayor ,
71iis was stricken out at the instance o
] flio rowdy editors , ono of whom , Prank
Jl , Morriosoy , is now running for the
legislature on the democratic ticket.
U'hey , nnd not Council , had the appoint-
fnont of the police commission placed
4nto the hands of the governor , because
they confidently expected that Gov
ernor Thayer would allow the combine
lo diotato the commissioners. This is
jtuu truth of history.
Tim prffAL OA'SLV ,
The remaining two weeks of the na
tional campaign will undoubtedly bo a
icrlod of extraordinary political ac-
Ivlty in oveiy part of the country , and
especially so in the doubtful states.
J'hero Is reason to believe that the
democratic managers arc getting ready
to make a final onset of unparalleled
vigor and aggressiveness. Everywhere
.hey arc urging contributions from of-
Ice holders and are putting their re-
juoils in such a form that thosn who re
ceive them must see the expediency of
naking prompt and liberal response.
While the olllco holders are told lhat
they cannot bo compelled to contribute ,
they nro also informed that great
care will bo taken to preserve a record
of those who do contribute , so lhat their
service lo the party shall not be for
gotten. The Indications are that the
purpose of the democratic managers is
to amaus a large fund that will be dis-
ljursod with a most generous hand ,
where it is thought il can do the most
, 'ood , in the closing days of the canvas.
In other words , the plan appears to bo
Lo create an immense corruption fund
'or us-o especially in New York and In-
liana in buying votes and colonizing
voters. There is always a very con
siderable clement in the larger cities
of the former state whoso votes tire
Tor i-ale , and it is not lo bo
doubted that democratic money will bo
'rcoly used there this year in buying up
this element. As to Indiana the danger
is from colonization , but the republi
cans being forewarned should be able
to prevent this democratic expedient
from being carried on to a very serious
extent. The danger is also somewhat
reduced this year by the fact that the
laws of Indiana for punishing this form
of election fraud have been made very
strong and severe , and it is not proba
ble that so many Kentuekians as in
former years can be induced to go to the
aid of tlie Indiana democrats.
Wo do not believe , however ,
that any efforts the democratic
managers inny now make can
materially help their cause. Itis doubt
ful if even the appearance of Mr. Cleve
land on the stump , which is reported to
bo intended , would enable the party to
recover much of the ground it has lost.
The probabilities nro all against the
democracy carrying Indiana , and tlio
most trustworthy advices s > ay that Con
necticut , will go republican beyond a
peradvcnturo. Conceding to the repub
lican party all the states carried i'n 1881 ,
and nobody having an intelligent opin
ion seriously doubts that these stales
will bo republican this ycar-and only
Indiana and Connecticut will bo re
quired toelect Harrison and Morton. But
as the situation now looks the republi
cans have a much better chance of car
rying Now York than have the demo
crats , and while it is possible that some
thing may occur within the next two
vreeks to change this aspect it is more
reasonable to suppose that the repub
lican chance will continue to improve.
At any rate , there is before us two
weeks of as lively political work as this
country has ever known and it is to bo
expected that it will develop some in
teresting sensationa. To the men who
live largely by politics it will bo the
harvest season of the campaign.
The citizens of Montana are intor-
esled in the presidential campaign nom
inally to the extent of the election of a
delegate to the house of representa
tives , but in reality their future pros
pects are vitally concerned. The ques
tion of admission to the union as a stale ,
which is felt so keenly in Dakota and
Washington Territory , Is beginning to
warm the hearts of the people of Mon
tana also. And the democratic candi
date for delegate is taking advantage of
this newly aroused sentiment to tempt
Montana men in the true vein of n
Mcplnstopholes. Ho dare not address
his fellow citizens , who raise sheep , on
the Mills bill , for they are furious at
the prospect spread before them by that
most asinine of legislators. In Mon
tana there is little market for mutton ,
and the only inducement to raise sheep
is in the clip. As the wool must bo sent
a long distance to manufacturing points.
if free wool should become the law of
Ihe landtho sheep men of Montana
would simply be ruined. The cosl of
transportation would more than ollsot
the cheapness of raising. Neither does
Air. Clark dare to talk to his audience
about silver or lead , and the production
of thcso two metals is Montana's chief
industry. It is not necessary lo state
what has boon the policy of the admin
istration with regard to silver and lead ,
for it has been notoriously , infamously
adverse to the mining interests
of Colorado and Montana particularly.
Being forced to absolute silence on
these points Mr. Clark has wisely ad
dressed himself to the budding wish of
Montana to become a stale.
The burden of Mr. Clark's argument
acorns to bo that Montana's admission
would not bo opposed by congress or
vetoed by Mr. Cleveland in case of his
re-election , if by the election ot a demo
cratic delegate Montana gave some as
surance that she would be a democratic
state. Some of his hearers remarked
subsequently to the declaration of this
view that Montana would bo admitted in
any case If the republicans obtained the
control of the country , by reason of the
strong follow feeling among all the
wronged territories of the northwest ,
which would insure common treatment
for all of them. As this was felt lo bo
true , a friend of the democratic candi
date cnmo forward to urge that even in
that case there would bo a largo demo
cratic minority that would maito the
most desperate efforts to prevent the
admission of such n body of republican
states as would be furnished by Wash
ington Territory , Idaho , Montana and
perhaps two Dakotas. Suoh an acces
sion to the republican-ranks would give
the republicans unquestionable control
of the country. Therefore this gentle
man argued that Montana should go
democratic , because in that case the
territory would bo sure of both parties ,
of the republicans in any case , and ol
the democracy if Montana belonged to
The pcoplo of Montana may rest as
sured that the desperate efforts of a
Iwaten party arc formidable only to
themeolyaa. It is not uocossiry to re
fute such logic. But as' n specimen of
what can be said by a democrat heavily
linndicappcd by the nets of the admin-
atrntion , it also affords n brilliant ex-
imple of what may bo termed political
immorality. It is to be hoped that the
I > cop1o of Montana will vote for their
A-ooi , for their lead , for their silver.
If they do they will bo voting for the
material interests of their co.mtry. If
so voting they cast their ballots for
Tom Carter , the republican candidate ,
it will be because ho is on the side of
Montana wool , Montana lead and Alon-
Lann silver. And with regard to the
legitimate ambition of Montana to be
come u slate , the citizens can rely upon
the sympathy of those republican stales
that belong to the same great north
west , and are determined to do all that
can bo done for thorn , because they are
their natural allies and friends.
The democratic candidate for vice
president is particularly fond of repeat
ing the statement that thu gloomy pre
dictions of four years ago of what might
happen to the business of the country
in the event of democratic success have
not been verified. A number of times
he has told his audianccs that wherever
he wont in the last presidential cam
paign he heard it said that if Cleveland
were elected it would seriously menace
the national prosperity , ana then with
as much spirit as the veteran can com
mand , ho declares that those forebodings
have failed , and therefore that there
should bo no attention paid to the pres
ent predictions of harm to the business
of the country as the consequence of
continuing thu dumocratic administra
tion in power.
The obvious answer to Mr. Thurman'B
disingenuous plea is that the predic
tions ot four years ago have not boon
realized because the administration has
not been able to carry out its policy ex
cept to a very limited extent , and so
far as this has been done it has not
boon to the advantage of the business of
the country. We are still living under
laws enacted by republican administra
tions , so far as relates to the
financial and commercial affairs
of the country' The fiscal system
has not been changed , nor have the
laws which regulate the currency. All
things arc still as the republicans left
them , and the fact that matters have
irene along so smoothly , despite llio ef
forts of the administration to obstructer
or defeat the operation of these laws , is
the host possible testimony to the wis
dom of the party that enacted them and
to the desirability of restoring that
party to full control in the government.
But suppose Mr. Cleveland had boon
permitted to carry out his policy , can
anyone doubt lhat the result would liavo
boon damaging to the national
prosperity ? He would have stopped
the coinage of silver , which the
administration has been most
careful to keep down to the
minimum limit under the law. The ef
fect of the policy pursued regarding sil
ver has seriously injured the great sil
ver-mining industry , and could Mr.
Cleveland have had his way the ruin
of this industry would not have been the
least of the evils that must have re
sulted. The administration was favor
able to the Morrison tariff bill , which
all intelligent and candid democrats
now admit was a measure whoso success
would have been nearly ruinous to the
industries of the country. Everybody
of course understands that it is in favor
of the Mills bill , notwithstanding the
undeniable sectional discriminations of
that measure. So far as the ad
ministration dared to go in depart
ing from the republican treasury policy
there was injury done to the business
interests of the country , and a financial
exigency was produced so serious that
it was compelled to retreat from its
position. Had Mr. Manning remained
tit the head of the treasury , with his
complete subservience to the views and
demands of Wall street , it is extremely
probable that Mr. Thurman would not
now be able to congratulate his party
on the failure of the predictions of dis
aster to result from democratic ascend
ency in the government.
There is no glory for democracy in the
fact that the administration has not
seriously disturbed the currents of busi
ness or chocked the national prosperity.
The credit for the fortunate financial
and commercial condition of the country
Is duo to the wise republican laws which
the administration has been compelled
It is only a few months since the com
missioners of the bureau of emigration
discovered that the police authorities of
London were shipping to America their
pickpockets and burglars , providing
them with tickets for Chicago , whence
they could disseminate themselves over
the cities of the northwest. This was a
very line specimen of that quality ol
impudence known ns London assurance ,
but it has been surpassed by a recent
action of the Duke of Buckingham.
This descendant of the Villiers family ,
whom the qucon calls cousin , shipped
all llio pauper mon and women from his
vast estates to this country , providing
thorn with neither money nor tickets to
any western point , BO that they landed
completely doolituto. What makes this
mailer so outrageous is the fact that
those victims of ducal inhumanity pos
sessed rights of settlement and support
upon the counties whence they were exported -
ported , according to the old Anglo
Saxon unwritten law. These rights
were recognized when the present sys-
torn of treating paupers was introduced
into England , and it was
conceded that every person who
was indigent had a claim
for support upon the parish whore ho
was born. Dickens in Oliver Twist has
given the world some notion of the way
in which the poor lawsaroadministered ,
and the feeling in favor of n change of
system which began through him is
now intensified by the utter heartlessness -
ness of the land owners who shirk every
duly , and endeavor to fight every pecu
niary obligation. Owing to the frco
trade farce , agriculture is In such a
terrible condition in England that the
unemployed may bo counted by hun-
, drcds of thousands. The land owners

When It is reme'tiiborcd that these same

wealthy , and in many cases own tiny-
where from ton thousand to a million
acres , it becoims ! clear that the system
is untenable and cannot bo maintained

thu proportion of tlio Mutual Uos-orvo
Kund Ufo association.of New York , to
erect ii home for tin- hoard of trade , in
this city , commensurate with every
need , has been accepted. The proposi
tion was taken under advisement by the
board of trade over three months ago ,
and im a result a building1 association
has been ortrani/.od under the laws of
the stale , made up of many of the lead-
iiitf business men and caiiitalists of the
city , and the articles of incorporation
were tiled at llio recorder's olHce and

It is understood that preparations for
the erection of thu building will be com

ished \\ithin two years. Thu city and
county are directly inteiested in Hasan
enterprise- . The articles of incorpora
tion provide that so much of the second

sary for the use of tlio board of trade ,
shall be set apart free of rent , when the
building is completed , to so continue
until 1001) ) .
The remainder of the building1 by
reason of the prestige derived from its
ououpaney by the board of trade , it is
believed will rent for as much as the
entire building would yield without the
advantage which the presence ot the
board of trade will afford , and for the
additional reason that the stockholder *
desiring olliccs and Mores will liavo a
personal interest in its occupancy ,
thereby making it a productive and pop

The Irtiw lrlco of Cm tic.
Cattlemen who complain of the low
prices received for their cattle in the
Chicago market have themselves to
blame for it in a largo degree. The
price of calllo in Chicago ranges from
$ . 'J" > per hundred lo $0.00.
The highest priced beeves are doubt
less stall-fed , while those that bring a
low price have boon driven off the
range to the market. The former are
fat and In good condition , whereas the
latter are far loss marketable.
The business of running catllo on the
range is about at an end , and thesoonor
the cattlemen recognize this the botlor
it will bo for them. In the mountains
there will doubtless always bo a good
summer range , but oven in the moun
tains it will l > e necessary to adopt some
system of winter feeding. On the plains
tlio farmers are taking up the land , and
before an invasion of this sort the calllo
liavo lo give way.
The owners of herds that are kept
upon the range , whether on the plains
or in the mountains , ought at thu first
round-up lo cut out all the cattle they
intend to market during that year anil
turn Ihem into irrigated pastures. Of
course it would require n great deal of
land to maintain a very largo number of
cattle in this way , but it should bo re
membered that the day of largo herds
has gone by. It is time that the cattle
wore being divided up among a largo
number of owners.
If this were done it would bo possible
to market cattle in excellent condition
In the early part of thefall. These ani
mals would' bring the highest price of
grass beeves. In order to got the host
price in the market , and especially if il
be in the winter and spring , stall feeding -
ing is necessary.
There is no use in trying to persuade
oneself that cattle need no/coil and no
shelter in Colorado. The winter ? aru
not as severe here as they are in sonic
of llio other btatcs , but still they are too
cold to justify the attempt to niako
money by turning cattle out upon thu
bleak plains in the hope that in somii
way or other they will go through thu
winter all right.
To Advertise Nohrnxkn.
SiDN'HY , Neb. , Oct. H. To the Editor
of Tins UKK ; There is a word or two I
would like to add. I am traveling u
Nebraska particularly to sound public
feeling in the interest of a'lfltalo board
of Immigration" for Nebraska. While
the western portion of the state it ) in
need of such an organization the whole
slate would be greatly bonelilted by sucli
an organization. The justly proud record
ord wh ich Nebraska has made in the
world of agrieulluro should bo made
known everywhere. ltd advantages
and resources should bo advertised
Oregon and Utah have state societies
winch advcrtibo their Hueee * > s , and Ne
braska should do the same. A stnto
board of immigration would add im-
inuniicty to the population of the state
in even one year's work , and the farm
ers would rflcognizo and work for such
an organi/ntian. The real estuUi men
are n unit for it , I believe , and If they
are not the pioneers who develop and
encourage immigration I would like to
know who is.
In my humble opinion I know of no
catuo into which TllK JlKi : could outer
and bo bettor assured of great general
support nnd recognition as the subject
of state immigration.
Please say a word or two in its favor
and please a large constituency in woAt >
orn and northern Nebraska where
