A PltAfhMAtf CIIOSfiN ,
Tlio clcinocrntto national committee
baa olootod Mr. Calvin S. 13rice Tie
chairman. This action was not unox-
poiHcd. For several weeks , or since it
became luiown that Senator Gorman , of
Maryland , was not u candidate , there
has boon little doubt tlmt'Mr. Brlcc
would bo selected , Thcro was at least
ono strong point in his favor , the fact
that ho Is very wealthy nnd can bo ro
lled on to be generous in political con
tributions ,
In the last presidential contest Mr.
Brice was chairman of the demo
cratic campaigncommittee. . 'For
a man of very limited political
experience ho did very well In 'that po
sition. At the outset ho did some
things to Imvo been oxpoctcd of a novice -
vice in political management , and early

There was n suspicion that Mr. Brlco
was not ardently devoted to Mr. Cleveland -
land nnd his special policy , but there
can bo no doubt that ho most
earnestly desired the success of his
party , and worked as hard and
faithfully to that end as any man
could have dono. Ills standing in dem
ocratic confidence is fully established bj

Mr. Brice has boon supposed to bo par
tial to Governor II111 as the next candi
date of the democratic party for presi
dent. It is therefore not unlikely that
his being placed at the head of the na
tional committee will bo regarded as a
move favorable to Hill. In an inter
view n , few days ago Mr. Randall pre
dicted the election of Brlco and stated
that it would have no significance what
ever with respect to the presidential
chances of cither Cleveland or
IIill. Novorlhclcss it is not quesliona-
bio that the tariff views of Mr. Bricc
are more in accord with these of the
governor lhan with these of the ex-
president. Ho is largely interested in
railroading , manufacturing and mining ,
ana is in sympathy with the Randall-
Gorman element of the party rather
than'the Carlisle-Mills wing. If the
supporters of Mr. Cleveland propose to
run him again on the platform of last
year , it is by no moans improbable thai
they will have the opposition of Mr.
Mr. Brice has political ambition ,
Ho is looking toward the United
States- senate , and should the dem
ocrats of Ohio secure the legislature

in no ovcmt again be a candidalo. Mr.
Brice will hardly bo so olllclent a chair

mitteo as was his predecessor , the late
William II. Barnum , who was a poli
tician of long experience and grcal
skill and shrewdness. But Mr. Brice

The absurd Herald devotes an entire
column to the removal of Judge Snndford
from the Federal bench in Utah. 11
informs its readers that the president
is liable to impeachment for stating tc
the judge that his administration o !
justice "was not in harmony with the :
policy ho deemed proper to bo pursued
affairs ' ' and fet
in reference to Utah ,
openly removing him for this cause.
Could anything be more ridiculous'i
The JJcrald knows as well as any of its
readers that the cause of Judge Sand-
.ford's removal and the solo cause was
his policy toward offenders under the
Edmunds act , " which has been
maintained for the past three years
against the protests of the Utah com
mission and the remonstrances of the
strongest oiti/.oiiH of Utah. It knows 01
ought to know , If itdocs not that during
his boiuilorial term President Harrison ,
ns chairman of the committee on terri
tories , had a distinctly marked policy
on Ulah 'matterswhich was , after nil ,
only the.-policy of the conservative people
ple of the country bent upon seeing the
laws rigidly administered.
It was highly proper and manly in the
president in removing Judge Sandford
to Btatu frankly and openly that as hie
policy in Utah was to bo on the lines ol
a rigid enforcement of the laws he did
not fool that Judge Sandford was the man
for the place. Any citizen of Salt Lake
know just what that meant. Judge

American pride will bo unpleasantly
affected by the statement that the ex
hibit of the United States at the Paris
exposition is disappointing. There are
features of it that are unsurpassed , but
as a whole it does not do credit to the
country , and , in the inevitable compari
sons made , the grout ro public is not al
ways ahead. Perhaps it was not to bo
oxpectcd that it would bo , but on the
other hand there was every reason why
the industrial interests of the United
States should have made extraordinary
efforts to oxool all other countries , or
at least to make their display
complete with their very host pro
ductions. It was an opportunity of
which the fullest advantage should
have been taken , from a purely practi
cal and selfish standpoint. Congress
made liberal provision for u thorough
exhibit , There was u special incentive
in the character of the exposition as
commemorative of the first French re
public , nnd there was the certainty that
all Europe would bo represented among
the visitors to Paris. Never haa this
country had a bettor olmnco to nut its
bust foot forward in the matter of show
ing the world what it had and what it
can do , nnd it is matter for rctgrot that
it did not fully Improve the ohanuo.
The feature in which the American
exhibit is distinctly superior is that of
machinery , but in the industrial sec
tions the English are far ahead of us.
Thin is explained , though the oxn'.ana- '
tlon is not altogether satisfactory , t > y
the fact that the English are but thirl ]
rallos away , so to speak , whdro wo ar
three thousand mile ) distant. But dls
tanco really counts for very little , am
the superior excellence of the Engllsl
industrial exhibit Is the moro to bo com
mended bccausn it is entirely Iho rosul
of private enterprise , not : p'omiy hav
Ing boon contributed out' of publti
funds. It is ono of the vcr ;
rare instances in which English
men have shown greater enter
prise than Americansnnd they doservi
full credit for it and all the advantagi
It can give them. "What few scatter
ing hits our people do make in this ox
hlbitlon , " remarks a Paris conmspond
out , "aro solely duo to Individual Inge
nutty , nrlistio taste , pluck and enter
prise. It is nothing short of hnniillat
ing to sco the whole industrial roprc
sontation of our country dcpon ( < len
upon these , to realize that In this worli
competition wo measure up ngnins
England about ns Canada inoasuret
against us at Philadelphia in 1870. "
But for the great electrical exhibit
made by Edison and the superior char
aclor of the American machine sec
tlou , In which nearly everything oxhib
Hod is novel and Illustrates an advance
the United States would play u quite in
significant part in the Paris exposition
The fact is unfortunate , if not discredit
able , and the benefit the country shoult
have derived will bo lost.
The presentation to the military
academy at West Point of portraits o
Grant , Sherman nnd Sheridan was vcr ,
characteristic of Mr. George W. Chllds

scalier unobtrusively so many seeds o
kindness , to assist whore assistance wa

deserving men and woman , with no dis
play of generosity , or to gather arouni
him so many and such a largo circle o

A CHANOK has been maao in. the
management of the South Omaha stock
yards which cannot fail to bo benefi
cial. The selection of Mr. W. N. Bab-
cook by the axccuti\vo board to succeed
Manager Boyd brings into that position
n gentleman thoroughly familiar wltli
freight rales nntl Iho intricacies of Ihc

man has long been needed at the Soutli
Omaha stockyards. Without disparag

it is an open secret thai Ihc
yards are nol gelling their full
quota of hogs and catllo due
lo the fact that the management 1ms

agent of the Northwestern railroad , is
thoroughly conversant with thai ques
lion , nnd his experience as n railronti
man will come inlo good stead ns tin
manager of the Omaha btockyards. He
should not alone be able lo arrange bol

able to secure prompt and olUcient coir
neotions on all lines carrying stock in It

of the In tor-State Railway association

ter company. The excellent spirit
shown in the communication announc

Iho St. Paul ought to have n

Mu. RAND.YEI.I expects conservative
tariff loglslntipn from the next congress -
gross , ' 'not over protective , nor even
highly protective , but sufficient to pro
tect the labor'o the Uniled States from
the lower wages of Europe. " Still the
same stale protdnso. The induslries ol
England are1al Ibo high tide of pros
perity , while ili'.this country iron mills
are closed , and _ those in operation do
not find a market for half their pro
duct , yet so intelligent a man as Mr.
Randall talks of protecting our labor
from the lower wages of Europe. It is
impossible to say what the Pennsylvania
Hlntesmnn would regard as a conserva
tive tariff , but he makes an unlooked-for
and welcome concession in recommend
ing nn enlarged free list and a reduc
tion in the tariff.
THK British and Canadian 'govern
ments have decided on an elaborate sys
tem of forts lo bo buill on Iho western
shores of British Columbia. The forts
will extend from Esquimnult , the head
quarters of Iho Brilish Norlh Pacific
squadron , to Victoria , and work will
begin this year. These preparations ,
coupled with the announcement of the
homo government that orders had been
nhiced for heavy armament for
these forts , indicates the dolermi-
nalion of Great Britain to strengthen
her hold on North America. It is a
significant answer to these confiding
statesmen who imagine that Canada is
ready to join the union of slales , and
gives a black cyo lo the movement for
commercial reciprocity.

is the fact that she is built after the
