TilF.Ri : Is too much truth In the story
of n combination of leading political
loaders against the ronoinlnatlon of
President Harrison. It Is also too true
that the animosity of these leaders
grows out of thu disappointment of per
sonal ambitions. It is likewise appar
ent that some of President HarrlBon'H
friends are very unwisely rolling the
political waters by attacks upon public
men who are thought to bo Inimical to
the president's alleged ambition to suc
ceed himself. These conditions are to
bo rogroltad. The party at largo la

fiticccfcsfully removed. Thcso nro :
The lack of moans of com

of banking facilities , nnd llio consequent
Inability of our merchants to glvo llio

Kuropoan rivals ; the oxecwlvo duties

IncronHo the puruhiiHitig power of tli3
Lntlti-Amorlcan puoplo by reducing

im ndvnntago that amounts to from 6 to

nays , that It now remains for the manu
facturers of thlB country to study the ru-
quiremeiitB of the Latin-American markets -
kots and comply with them.
Our commerce with Central and South
America has increased since reciprocity
negotiations were entered upon , and
there Is every reason to expect that it
will continue to expand. The action of
the congress of Venc/.uola regarding the
agreement negotiated with that country
lias boon much talked of an a cheek to
the reciprocity policy , but if that action
is adhered to , which is improb
able , it will Imvo no olTect upon
the nrrnngcmnnts nlrondy effected
and any further negotiations that
may bo contemplated. What Is
now an accomplished fact will stand , and
HM honolllfl will become moro apparent
and Hiibstantial from jonr to year. Some
of the othur countries with which closer
t"ado relations are to bo desired may bo
slow In entering into arrangements ,
owing to conditions rendering a change
of dHcal policy extremely dilllcult , but
all of them will accept some form of
reciprocity In time , and meantime the
people of the United States can bo very
well Bntlsllod with what has been accom
plished. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
A FAll nKAOIHAO DNOISION.
Indian blood , however thin it mny
IMVO been , has hitherto been a source of
profit , in the Indian country. The in
terior department for many years has
held nil persons with a drop of it in their
veins to bo Indians , and IIB such entitled
to all the benefits of allotment , annuity
nnd support which accrued to the tribes
with which the half breeds alllllated.
Half brood Is a term covering the ontlro
chins of persons among Indians with a
trace of Indian blood. The squaw man
has been encouraged by this fast and
Intelligent half breeds have enjoyed
bonollts which have made some of them
wealthy. One half breed on the Chey
enne River reservation owns 3,000 head
of cattle , yet ho and his children regu
larly draw their rations nnd annuities
and are educated at public uxponso.
A United States judge nt Pierre has
given the squaw man nnd his family a
pretty stilT blow in the face in n
decision which declares that the chil
dren of Indian blood shall follow the
status of the father and not the mother
as hold by the interior department. In
the case upon which the opinion wiii
promulgated the right to sail liquors to
the children of a nqgro father , born of a
Sioux mother , was the question at Issue
and it was held that the United States
law against selling liquor was not in
fracted. This opinion , if it bo good law ,
opens in ) a grant many very nice ques
tions relative to titles to Indian lands
the legality of Indian treaties and tlio
distribution of tlio immense funds hith
erto hold to bo the property of all mem
bers of tribes having Indian blood. It Is
n far-reaching decision , nnd further
complicates our relations with the
Ordinarily the half-breeds nro the pro
gressive element among the Indians
and theirs nro the earliest and most
numerous signatures obtained to agree
ments for the cession of lands. They
have been a very Important factor In
the settlement of disputes and have often
prevented bloody conlliets.
The Biinw ( man Is a ureaturo who
usually dosplstH himself and deserved
the contempt of whlto associates. Yet
ho Is often the only suggestion of clvll-
izatlon in an Indian camp. lie has a
hard enough time of it nnd suitors sulll-
clent punishment in his half-savage
oxlMom'0 without fulling UIIOD these
ovll days , when his Indian children are
llnbln to be pauporl/.cd by his relation to
them Instead of being enriched himself
by their allotments , annuities and
rations. The poor squaw man will tnlco
little comfort In thu thought that his
copper-stained progeny can buy whlbkey
when they please If the cattle , plows ,
blankets , cash annuities , rations and
allotments nro to bo cut oil IH the price
of the privilege.
Tbo olToct of the decision nnd its
application will bo wntohcd with Inter
est by squaw men , half breeds , nnd full
bloods on the reserve * and allotments
ns well as the whites In the surrounding
country. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

There does not nnponp to bo nny seri
ous disaffection among tlio republicans
of New York , but there does Boom to bo
n want of confidence in the success of
the party this year. Such n conclusion
is suggested by the fact that the men
doomed to be most available to make thu
race for governor decline to bo consid
ered candidates. The olllco of governor
of the Empire state is regarded
us 0110 of diallngulbhod honor ,

of tlio olllco nro connldorcd the govern
orship of Now York IB n position which
It M most natural to mippoao nny man ,
ambitious of polltlr.nl honor nnd nd-
vnncomont , would Bock. Hut novortil
prominent republican lenders of Now
York who Imvo been urged io allow
their niunuB to bo used in con
nection with this olllco Imvo nbso-
lutoty refused lo entertain the
proposition. Undoubtedly they nil nro
sincere in the reasons they have given
for thin determination , but It IB carlnlnly
mtggostlvo of n lack of confidence in the
result. It If ) not remembered that the
republicans of Now York have ever before -
fore had HO much difficulty ns they ap
pear to bo now hnvlng to got n thor
oughly available man ns n candidate for
Yet tlio outlook for the republican
party in Now York Is by no tncnna un
favorable. The spring town elections
showed that the party had gener
ally regained the losses It sus
tained the previous November nnd in
Borne localities had grown stronger.
The evidence \vnn that the people , hav
ing been misled last fall , had after moro
careful and Intelligent consideration
scon tholr mlbtnko nnd determined to
rectify It , an far ns possible. They have
been doing intelligent thinking Hince ,
and It will be Htrango If when they vote
next fall the effect of thin does not ap
pear In further ropnbllcnn gains. More
over , tlio tendency of democratic Bonti-
munt in the south nnd west , particularly
In the matter of silver Inllation ,
ought to lead thousands of dem
ocrats in Now York to go to the party
which favors honest money nnd n sound
and stable currency. Then there Is the
chance that If the IIIll faction domin
ates the state convention , as It doubtless
will , there will bo n largo number of
democrats who will refuse to submit to
ltn dictation. All the signs and prom-
IBCS , indued , are in favor of republican
success in Now York this year if har
mony can bo maintained and thorough
Preliminary to the work of organiza
tion will bo the convention of the slate
republican league to bo held at Syracuse
next week. For some time past tboro
has boon great activity In organi/ing
clubs , and It is expected that the league
convention , which will listen to ad-
drossus by a number of prominent
republicans , among them Mnjor Me-
Kinloy , will bo n great success in point
of numbers. The indications nro that
the rank and llio of the republican
party In Now York is earnest and en
thusiastic , and if thu leaders will but do
tholr duty the party can win n signal
victory this year.
A movement has been started in Phil
adelphia , with which Hon. Wayne Mac-
Vongh , ox-attorney general of the
United States , is said to bo identified ,
for organizing a national anti-monopoly
league. It is inferred from a report re
garding this movement that It would bo
the purpose of the league to bring pro
ceedings in the courts against trusts and
similar combinations as well as to se
cure legislation regulating telephone
charges , railroad transportation rates ,
and in a general way make war
upon all forms of monopoly. It IB not to
be doubled that such n league could
speedily secure nn enormous member
ship , nor is it questionable that it might
bo able to accomplish a great deal in the
Interest of the people. The very exist
ence of such an organisation , spreading
Itself ever the ontlro country and hav
ing the single purpose of protecting tlio
people from the abuses nnd exactions of
monopolies and till forms of combina
tions to prey upon them would have n
wholesome , repressive and restraining
Inlluonco. If a nlovomont of the charac
ter reported has bo.on started it is sure
to make very rapid progress.
Cm/.KNS of Omaha who believe in
honest nnd olllciunt local government
must assert themselves In some method
or the disgraceful behavior of some city
and county olllcials will not bo cho.'ked
or improved. It must bo somebody's
business to run down the thieves nnd
rabcals who prey upon the taxpayers.
What is everybody's' business is no
body's business ; hence BOIHO organiza
tion should tnlco up the subject and help
the newspapers expose and disgrace the
unworthy and convict those guilty of
crimes and malfeasances In olllco.
Lr.T any man in Omaha who believes
thorp nro scores of men and women out
of work and anxious for something to do
undertake to biro cither a man or a
woman for an odd job or secure a compe
tent man or woman of all work , and bis
belief will bo milpliurously modified.
There may bo a great many out of work ,
but there are also a trruat many who do
not want employment Involving work.
TllK board of public lands and build
ings Is exuooted to report upon the
Ilasllngs usylum investigation tomor

making a review of the testimony as the

whoso salaries are at stake will not be
disturbed before frost comes.

fluence of Lord Salisbury's ( rovornmont gocu ,
bo called a vlorbund , nnd , Indoad , U M not
easy to foresee n condition of things In which
the real IntormU of Great Urttaln would in-
cllno her to Join nn nlllanco to which Uussla
was n party. Ko long AS Uussla maintains nn
aggressive attltudo in Asia , so long must
Great Hrltnln , ns nn "Imperial" power , oppose -
pose Kussla , while it Is not clear thnt In a
purely Huropc.in question Great Britain has
nny national Interest nt all. As ono of tha
sat Is fled powers It Is her tniarott to Join the
other satisfied power : . It may sound
satirical to describe Austria ns n sat
isfied power , but her grievance against
Germany I * now n quarter of n century old ,
and she seems to bo convinced of the hope
lessness of obtaining any rodrcss fro in It. As
for Germany nnt1 Italy , they nro dotibMcss
satisfied powers , In the sense that they have
nothing to gain by war. The drelbund Is
therefore n league to maintain the status quo ,
nnd Is thus nn nlllanco In the Interest of
pence. Nobody would say that Uussla nnd
Franco were satUllo.l powers , Tbo real In
terest of a nation trovornod ny n despot Is
less Important to ascertain In forecasting the
political action of the nation than the dispo
sition of the despot. Whllo Kussla undoubt
edly has an Interest ndvcrso to that
of Knglam ) , It Is known that the C2.tr
Is personally very much opposed lo Ger
many , and thnt ho Is supported by a strong
national sentiment. As to Franco , there Is ,
of course , no question. Illsmarck's challenge
to name n slnglo French statesman who
would nvow that Franco had abandoned the
notion of roconqulrlng AUniico and Ijorralno
still romalns unanswered. It is parfoctly
plain that Franco nnd Russia moan to attack
Germany the moment thnt they fool strong
enough to do so with success , and this pur
pose Is not really disavowed In either coun
try. Whllo the drolbuml , then , ns an alliance
to maintain the status quo Is in the Interest
of pence , the Kusso-Fronch alliance Is as
clearly an alllanco to upfot the status quo at
the llrsl convenient season , and is thus a pre
paration for war.
Lord Salisbury now seems resolved thnt
the present pirhamont shall live out Its
statutory term , which , It will be remembered ,
docs not end until August , IST1. From such
incidents * ni the Wisboch by-oloctlon no
draws deductions different from these expressed -
pressed by his p.mlc-strickon partisans. To
his mind the situation couUl not bo worse
than It is at present , and can hardly help
changing for the bottor. It is , in the lirst
place , Improbable that Mr. Gladstone can re
tain the headship of his party two years
longer. Ills retirement for any cause from
the political field , is likely to provoke dissen
sion , and perhaps rupture , in his party , over
the question of succession to the leadership.
If Sir William Hat-court's claims are
recognized , It would tiot bo surprising
to see a now radical party started
under Sir Churloj Dllko. Should Mr. John
Morley , on the other hand , bo selected to
command the Gladstoman forces In the lower
bouso , Sir \Villlam Harcourt might bo
prompted by the galling disappointment of
his hopes to organi/.o n now secession of the
moro conservative liberals , similar to that
carried out by Lord Hartlngton and Mr.
Chamberlain. It Is no soorot that Sir William
Harcourt himself , nnd not a fotv of the old
fashioned liberals who .still call themselves
conservatives , believe th.it since the split In
the Irish party the homo rule question has
ceased to be n vital ono , ant ) may as well bo
shelvod. Mr. Morley , on the other hand. la
In full sympathy with Mr. Gladstone ns ro-
gnrds the necessity nf keeping the homo
rule plank in the very front of the liberal
platform. Many other things mny
happen in two years. The Eng
lish and Welsh nonconformists , for
instance , nnd the Scotch I'roibyto-
rims would have time to awake to the
significance of the formidable power dis
played by the Catholic hierarchy in the Irish
elections. Then , again , it may bo possible
to carry out the project of redistributing
seats whlcn Lord Salisbury Is known to bo
contemplating a plan whereby the repre
sentation of Ireland would ba cut down , nnd
thnt of English districts whore the lories
are strongest , materially increased , There
is always , too , the chance of gaining prestige -
tigo and Inlluonco through the foreign policy
of the tory government , which gonor.illy , it
must bo owned , deserves the confldoocu and
sympathy of Englishmen. Should n war
breakout In the TMiisvaal , or In Eijypt , erIn
In Afghanistan , Lord Salisbury is almost
certain to moot the oaiorgoncy with moro
dignity nnd firmness than were ovlneod by
Mr. Gladstone in similar conjunctures.
The introduction of homo rule In Br.ull
has boon deferred for eighteen months , but
not without reason. Tltnn Is required for
the creation of a now political order. The
revolutionists began in November , 18S3 , by
clearing the ground. All the institutions of
the monarchy and the provlncos were swept
away by their preliminary doorooj. The only
source of power was the provisional proil-
dent and his self-appointed ministers. In
every province n similar government was es
tablished with the aid of the military garri
sons nnd promptly recognized at UIo as tem
porarily responsible for the administration of
the stato. The process of transforming these
du facto governments Into constitutional
agencies of democratic rule was necessarily
retarded by the Inherent dtlUctlltlus of the
work , A constitution was first framed for
the nation aud sanctioned by a now congress.
Then it was possible to elect the first consti
tutional president and to establish n ministry
in accordance , not with the will of the bit-
tahous , but with the law of the land. What
has boon done for the nation at largo Is re
peated for the bonollt of each sovereign
stato. In each provlnca It is necessary to
frame a constitution anil to secure for It the
approval of n loglslnturj oiccteJ by the poo-
pic. When this Is done tbo governor is
elected nnd the ofllcial who has boon repre
senting the rovolutlonary cabal of November ,
18SU , rotlros. In the chief provlncos this
clmngo has already beca effected , nnd by the
end of the year every st'ite will bo released
from the dominating Inlluonco of the national
There seems to bo a generally prevalent
Impression on the Kuropoan continent thnt
something will hnppou In Dulgnrla before
long. Tbo French press has been declaring
forsomo time that 1'rlnco Fordlnniul U on
the eve of declaring his independence , nnd It
is known that ho has been making fresh ef
forts to secure his recognition by the powers.
Turkey gave tacit assent to the election of
Ferdinand when she allowed the duto for the
appointment of a now governor for East
Humolla to pass by without making any sign ,
but the prince und his minister , StnmbulofT ,
want somcihlng more dulliilto than this ,
knowing that several of the great powers are
ready to join In bis continuation upon Tur
key's ' initiative. Unfortunately for them ,
whenever the sultan exhibits signs of an in
tention to rccognUe him , the Uusslan am
bassador , M. NelldofT , drops In nnd hints
thnt Immediate payment of tbo long overdue
war Indemnity would bo exceedingly con
venient ju.U now. Then the sultan thinks It
would be foolish to interfere with the status
quo in iiutgarln.
