In Ids speech at the opening of the
republican ( "tnipaign in Omaha last
week , Governor Mclvlnloyrfaul that one
thing about the democratic party is
that when it does got Into power It la 'i
disappointment , and to honest and well *
moaning democrats a humiliating disap
pointment. The campaign of 1800 , said
* , ho governor , was a pile of woes which
were tojollow the dolngi of the fifty-
first congress , mil notably the tariff
law. The domoijr.tcy won on the p'o-
diction of these 'woes , by alarming the
people and pledging tliupirty to loir
up root and branch all this evil legis
lation. Kvoroho'Jy is familiar with
what the party has undortakjn to do by
way of carrying out this pledge.
\Vhon the house of roprosonlatlvoa of
the nrosont congress assembled the great
democratic majority in that bo.ly was
bound by promises made on the stump
and in Iho p'irty platforms lo do certain
things. It had told the country that the
Mi'KinloytarllT law watt an outrairo ; that
the rates needed thorough revision and
reduction all along the line ; that the
curreiicv of the country was Insulllclont
in volume ; tnat bounties on sugar-grow
ing wore unconstitutional and should bo
Instantly repealed ; that ocean mall piy
wnb a steal : that thu nopartinonts of the
government wore honeycombed with
corruption nnd recking with fraud ; that
the Fifty-first congress had boon most
reckless and extravagant in expendi
ture , and that the duty of thu now con
gress was to move at onoo mul wild all
its power against all these abuses and
wrongs. This grail democratic major
ity claimed in season and out that the
pcop'.o had given it that mission.
What is the record ? The solo effort
of the great democratic hvijority In tlio
present house to lo.sson the burdens of
taxation they told the people they wore
unnecessarily boirlng was directed to a
change in not more than half a dozen
itouid out of the ; ( ,5'JO embraced in the
tariff law. The great body of the law _
was not attacked at all. Is it not en
tirely fair to s ; > v that either the charges
made against the McKlnloy bill wore
false or the house signally failed in its
duty to the Hoopla'/ / This majority wont
lo work with tlio assurance to the coun
try that it would cut down the expenses
of the government $100,000,000 or moro.
It proposed to show tint Its charge
against the "billion dollar" congress
w.iet well foundo I and that its denunci
ation of republican extravagance was
just. But hero again it failoJ , for it
made aupropriations exceed ing by over
810.000,000 these of the lirdt jossion of
the preceding congress , among other
thinirs passing a river and harbor bill
which carried a larger expenditure
than any other measureof the kind in
the history of the govormjtit. The rec
ord of the house uf rop"O30i tUivo3 of
the present congress , extending over a
period of more than eight months , with
an overwhelming democratic majority ,
does not show a single promise of the
democratic party redeemed or any effort
made to redeem one , with the solo ex
ception of the pledge to give the coun
try free and unlimited coinage of silver.
What is true of the present demo
cratic liou'-eof representatives is equally
true of ovorv other democratic house
since 1H7. ) . All of thorn have boon a
disappointment , and the explanation is
found in the fact that the deimcr.icy as
a parly has no settled convictions aiul
woll-Uolinod policy regarding any pub
lic question which is at this time an
issue before the people. It is divided on
the tarilT , on the currency , on the re-
monotization of silver , and it is united
on nothing but the purpose to keep one
section of the country sjlid for the de
mocracy by denrlving the colored citi
zens of their right to a free and unre

Last week Mr. Cleveland made a
brief visit to Now York city , in re
sponse to the summons of Mr. Whitney
and other party managers. On his do-
pirturo lie stated that lie hud baon suc
cessful in the object ho had in view.
Immediately after the dop irture of the
candidate Tammany hull hold a moot
ing and adopted resolutions plodding
that organi/.atiou to labor earnestly for
democratic success. On that occasion
Mr. IJourko Cockran , who mtido the
memorable spet-eh in the Chicago con
vention opposing the nomination , deliv
ered an address in support of the demo
cratic candidates. Tlio object of Mr.
Cleveland in his hurried Visit to Now
York from ills Massachusetts losort is
thus made plain. It was to reconcile
Tammany and the "anti-snappers , " and
it would scorn that this was accom
Such a reconciliation moans the sur
render of Mr. Cleveland and his friends.
It signifies that the e Hidldato.lias given
a pledge to Tammany that the patron
age , in the event of his election , shall
bo controlled so far as Now York Is con
cerned by that organizillon. The situ
ation had become Horlous and was grow
ing steadily moro so. Senator Hill had
not made a sign as to what he intended
to do. The men who Ind fought tlio
battle for Mr. Cleveland's nomination
wore disaffected because they hid not
received the attention which they
thought they deserved. There was un
certainty regarding tlio real sentiments
nnd intentions of tlio Tammany loaders.
Whitney rind Dickinson found them
selves unable to do anything because
they had no authority to uriko plo dgos
that would bo binding. Nothing short
of the personal assurances of Mr. Cleveland -
land would do , and hence lie waa
brought from Biu ird's H iv to moot in
secret consultation the men whom ho
has most lioartlly hated for years and
to make a compact with them that
wonUl Insure their support. No other
rational explanation oin bo given of the
appearance ot Mr. Cleveland in Now
York and the action of Tammany Im
mediately following. Everybody who
knows anything about that political
organization knows that it is not in tlio
habit of giving something for nothing ,
certainly never twice to the anmo bene
ficiary. Mr. Cleveland bus been favored
oncn by Tammany and failed to recog
nize his obligation. Tammuny doea not
Intend to allow this to oouur again , and
therefore , as all the signs clearly Indi
cate , it hua exacted from the candidate
such pledges with regard to the control
of the federal patronage In Now Yorit
My us will justify it in supporting h in.
In other words , M % Cleveland , in his
overall dowlng aixloly to bo elected to
presidency , has surrendered to Tain-
many and accepted the terms ot tint
o.'ganl/.r.Uoti as the price of its support ,
.lust how much this will Improve the
damncralic situation Ills dllllcult to do-
lormlno. It is to 1)3 oxpaiHo.l tint it
u-ill have a tondenuy to harui'miza the
democracy of thu K npiro at-xto , but It
also may have Iho effect to drive from
the support of Mr. Cleveland a great
many independent voters who cannot
approve auch a b.ivg'iln , in well as these
people who are not willing to SJQ the
federal ofllccs in the chief city ot the
union handed over to the control of the
most unscrupulous politic il orginlzi-
tion that over had an existence In this
country. There can bo no doubt of the
Inordinate ambition of Air. Cleveland to
bo again president of the United Stales ,
and it Is evident that ho is prepared to
go lo alnust any extremity In further
ance of his ambition. Suoli being the
case , what bo . ' 011133 of tlio claim of
sturdy honesty which his supporters
make in his behalf'No compact made
with Tammany can bo honest.
A SUGUKiiTirK COMPARISON.
It Iris long boon apparent thai Ameri
can business mothoJs are more fruitful
of results than thoto of Great Britain
umlor siinilnr conditions. A comparison
of the life insurance business in the two
countries illustrates this. Of the total
sum of $112,000,030,000 of life Insurance In
force in the world at present the United
States has $3,500,000,01) ' ) . In ISJO Great
Britain had flvo times as much life in
surance In force as the United States ,
the business in this country having been
com ] > , natively in Us Infancy at thai
time. But in 1890 , after thirty years ot
continuous growth , this country hid
81,203,000,000 in force , while" Great
Britain haU only ? 3,503,000,00 ( ) , a portion
of which had boon underwritten by
American companies. Between 1880 and
1890 the amount ot life insur.iuco issued
in tliis country exceeded by $1,503,000-
000 thai of Great Britain , including
The explanation of this is to bo found
in ttio greater activity and energy of'tlio
insurance men of Ihis country and the
bolter ability of American citizens to
boar Iho expense of insurance. Per
haps Ihe 1 liter ciuso is the chief one.
In Great Britain the proportion of people
ple who can afford to pay for insurance
is much smaller than in ibis counlry.
In Gtoal Britain Iho very rich and Iho
very poor predominate. The former
care little for life insurance and the lat
ter cannot afford it. In America the
majorily are in moderate circumstances
and can boar the expense of life insur
ance in a modest way. It is with this
class thai the underwriters do tlio bulk
of their business. Considering that lifo
insurance had its origin in England and
was c irriod on in that country loa j be
fore it was introduced into America , it
is somewhat significant that it now
flourishes so much more extensively hero
than in tlio country of its birth. The
cause of the difference is explained'
Iho facts above stated.

Wo still believe that it was a great

Mr. Wheeler was shelved two years ago

made up of boodlemon and ward heelers.

MiMAiin , Neo. , Sept. 5. To the Editor of
THE BBC : Will the next legislature restore
the bounty on sugar raar.ufocttned In this
state ? is a question Hint -should interest.uv-
cry citizen of Nebraska. IIo can take the
fuels and figures , do his own ilgnrlugand
draw his own conclusions , "for tbo way is so
plain that a wayfaring man , though a demo
crat , may not err therein. "
The beet sugar factory tbat Ibo Oxnnrd
company built at Grand Island was originally
planned to bo built in California , but before
tbo plans were executed the ofllcers of tbo
company wore approached by men from this
stuto who urged thorn to locate bore , und as
an inducement they Informed thorn that the
state bounty would positively bo retained ,
Tno Oxnnrd people being favorably Itn-
pressed with the state and the inducement
of tbo bounty concluded to canvass the situ
ation. They wora mot on every hand with
with tbo assurance that tbo bounty would be
retained , loading citizens all over tbo stale
assuiing them that such was the sentiment
of thn people , oven the state ofllclals
pledging .themselves that the bounty
would not bo repealed , and so thn
company finally concluded to chiingo tb
location from Califoinia to Nebraska ,
where sugar was I'j' ' cents to IJf cents lower
than It was In Culltornin , nnd what was tbo
rosnlU After they bad laid down over
$1.000,000 in Nournslia the next legislature
ignored the people's plcdtros nnd ropudlatod
their contract under thu pretense of pro
tecting the people from a monopoly , while
the fact is that the Oxnard company is dis
tinctively an anti-monopoly company , being
the only company In tbo United Stutos thut
does not oolong to tbo sugar trust.
I am advised by Mr. J. U. Hamilton ,
secretary ot tlio Oxnnrd company , tbat his
company proposed building ton factories < n
this stale , if Iho bounty bad not boon re
pealed , but that they positively can
not and will not , build another
factory unless the bounty Is rostorod. The
restoration of the bounty then moans
ton sugar factories for this state , It moans
tbo investment of 11 cool $5,000,000 to build
them ; It moans the cultivation of 50,000
nerds of beets ; It means an influx In popu
lation Into this state of at least ! > 5oi)0 , ) people
to do the work ; U means that a farm that
now onlv supports ono family will support
ton lumiliiis ; it menus that the farmer , in
stead of raising corn that will only rot urn
him tDglll per aero , can rniso beets that
will uturn him WO to $80 per ncro , nnd in
stead of paying the freight on bis corn to
roach the eastern markets and then paying
freight baeit again on his sugar , ho can pro
duce bis sugar richt hero at homo , nnd If
there Is any freight lo bo paid "lot the oilier
fellow pny the freight. " It also moans mi
Increase in farm valuoi of from 5J to 'JUJ pa

women and children who cannot earn
as much at anything oUo ; In short ,
It mounti spending $1 to inako 810 ; It
means Nebraska to the front I In flvo years
from now sugar can bo manufactured In ibis
state without u bounty , because the ma
chinery that Is now comparatively crude will
