AHMAD AND LIKELY TO STAY.
It 19 necessary to go back a yoar to
And tlio beginning of tho quarrel be
tween Senator Stewart and Director
Powell of tho Geological Survey. List
summer tho Senate Committee on Irri
gation made a tour of investigation
through tho West. At Senator Stew
art's Invitation Major Powell accom
pnnlcd the committee. Tho two were
then frlcnas. "When they got back to
this city they were cntmlos.
Tho reason Is not known certainly.
It Is thought to bo because tho Senator
grew jealous of the attentions paid tho
geologic director. It Is said that
Powell was called on to mnko speeches
when Stewart, as chairman, should have
been honored. And generally Powell,
rather than Stewart, ployed tho star part
In the combination. This it Is said
offended tho Senator's amour vropre.
which has been well developed by long
residence upon tho sngobrush and alkali
f loins of tho arid regions of tho West,
io has been hammering away at Powell
Early In this session he got, through
Senator Plumb, nn appropriation of
$20,000 In the Urgency Deficiency bill,
to continue tho Irrigation surveys.
These hod been begun by Powell. This
amount was to be expended b the
Agricultural Dipirtment. It Is this
amount that Colonel Dick Ilinton, the
eminent socialist, Is opcratiog on.
Encouraged by this temporary sue
rcM, Senator Stewart endeavored to get
$820,000 more appropriated, to be ex
pended tho same way. thus tiklng the
work entlruly out of Major Powell's
hands He then went before tho House
Committee on Appropriations and In
sisted that the Geological Survey be
abolished, which of course would have
legislated Powell out of olllce. Instead
ot doing tills tho committee made the
uiuat appropriation for the Geological
Survey and took the Irrigation work
away from the Agricultural Deport
ment, restored It to Director Powell
and gavo hint $700,000 to carry out his
In the meantime Senator Stewart was
a frequent, almost a dally, visitor to the
Secretary of tho Interior and the Presi
dent demanding the summary removal of
Director Powell. Ha chanted him with
pretty much everything that was legally
or morally wrong, but when he was
asked to specify was compelled to ad
mit that he wu proceeding on belief,
The fact is the President. Secretary
of the Interior and the Secretary of
Agriculture even are all in favor of
Powell. The Agricultural Department
doesn't want the irrigation survey.
Senator Stewart will doubtless con
tinue hU right when the Sundry Civil
bill comes in the Senate, but he will
only dash himself against a granite wall.

THBtn CONVBNTIOX TO DAY ftMOIUtXR
OF MLHCT1K8 TIIKin TICKBT.
To-day the Democratic State Conven
tion meets at Aberdeen, South Dakota,
to nominate the first party ticket. The
contest promises to be one of the most
exciting and uncertain elections ever
hold In any State.
Last year tho Republicans carried the
Stato by over 30,000. but this year there
nro factors In the race which hitherto
have been nbsent. Last week the
Farmers' Alliance Issued n call for a
convention to nominate a State and
Congressional ticket. That organiza
tion is very strong and Its membership
exceeds 30,000, and the leaders claim
they will be able to carry It with them.
It is generally acknowledged that
most of them will come from tho Re
publican party, and this may materially
change tho present political status of
South Dakota. Tho Democrats aro
Jubilant over tho prospect of carrying
tho State, and, In the triangular tight,
have every reason to anticipate suc
cess. Tho Alliance people aro also
sanguine that tho new movement will
snrcad ranldlv nnd that othor North
western States will follow tho example
set by South Dakota.

Gcnorol Qrosvonor'a nnnlysls of ex
Governor Fornkor's nrgumont In tho
ballot-box cases, published In Tits
CniTic on Monday, created a brcozo In
tho House, especially among Ohloans.
In passing it may be noted toot Repre
sentative Mason, who Is friendly to
Furakur, was left out In tho distribu
tion of copies of Groevonor's analysis.
He toys ho can stand the omission of it
If Grosvenorand Sherman can.
Tho reply has caused a llvoly discus
sion. Forakur's friends say that It will
icopen all the old sores and destroy har
mony In tho G. O. P.
Forater's enemies say, "D.mn har
mony. "We'll bury Forakor facedown,
so that every struggle he makes will
bury him deeper."
Fnraker will probably want to reply
to Grosvcnor. though ho has made no
request to that end as yet. Such a re
quest would no doubt be disregarded.
Thecasolsnow closed, and the com
mittee, which Is frlondly to Grosvenor,
will refuse to reopen It.

TIIK HO I)BKK.t.Trt 1IIJI.
Ilepresentallve "William C. Culbert
son of Pennsylvania is serving his first
term in Congress. It lielng at the same
time his first term In any olllee, not
withstanding he Is in tho USth year of
his age. Ills district is made up of two
counties. Krle and Crawford. He was
a candidate for renomlnatton. He Is
an antl-AdmlnUtratlon and anil Quay
man. The boss therefore determined
that he should walk the plank.
It was a hard light, so hard that
Quay had his cbairuiau of the State
Committee, Andrews, whose home is
In Crawford County, eo up there anil
open headquarters and become himself
a candidate for delegate at the prima
ries. The result of all this unusual
elTort was that Culbertson was defeated
at the primaries by a small majority.
AVhen he was asked since If he were
defeated fairly, he replied:
"Well. I don't know. The only thing
that looked unfair was that the votes
polled outnumbered the Republican
voters of the county, and at one polling
place the majority in favor of Quay's
man for delegate was la excess of the
whole number of Republican voters.
However, I cherish ao resentment, aad
shall not pursue the tight. I was
defeated, as I recognize very
clearly, by that roan Andrews, acting
under the orders of bis raastar, Quty,
because I had refused to bow my aack
to Quay's yoke. I prefer my honor aad
tiidcptttueaea to auy omca Hem at ins
cost of submission to the dictates of aa
inespoasibla party boas."

At the session of the School Hoard
lABt night considerable Important busi
ness was transacted, especially In rela
tion to relieving tho High School.
Aftir transacting considerable routine
btulnoM, 3Ir. Thayer, from the com
mittee on High and Normal schools,
piescntul the unanimous report of the
committee In regard to affordiug relief
to the High School. The report shows
the necessity for such action as will re
lieve the building. Kven the exten
sion of the present building will be
wholly Inadequate to supply the In
creasing number of pupil?.
The report then proceeds to discuss
the ti'i ritorlul convenience of the school,
and the committee suggests two method
of meeting it, vU:
First by establishing additional Inde
pendent high schools.
Second By maintaining on central high
school and establishing fiom time to tluia
supplementary schools In which the lowr
grades of high-school work shall b done.
The first proposition does not meet
with favor on account of the Increased
cost, but the second was recommended
The Third division is named as the
first locality to be selected for this pur
pose, because it is a long distance from
the High School, Is thickly populated,
and the estimated eighth-grade promo
tions for next year is 140. This num
ber is likely to be increased by pupils
from the Arthur ami Gales' buildings,
Anacostia ami Kenning?.
The other location suggested is me
Fifth division (Georgetown). The estl
mated number of new pupils is thirty
live, and adding those from the Weight
man and Grant buildings and Teaaally
town would make the aggregate w eaty
seven. The bulldlugs selected for this
purpose, only a portion of which will
be ruiuired, are the I'eabody aad Cur
tU, and are recommended by reason of
tbdr itutral location with reference to
the oacs to be accoa modeled.
A business course of study will be Is
augurated, aim for this purpose the
ccMUihlee recommend the selection of
the TbowpsOB building, oa Twelfth
street, between K aad L.
The report was thoroughly discusseil

Jt- Is really astonishing that so little
tlnent has been provokeil by the
condition of political affairs In New
liQgtnnd. It is marvelous that the
descendants of tho Anglo-Saxon race
have not risen In revolution at the denial
off political rights which has prevailed
for more than half a century. No such
Congressional nnd Legislative gerry
mandering lias been continued or en
forced elsewhere In tho world as that
existing In Now England for Repub
U&n benefit. At tho last Congressional
elections In November. 1833, tho Re
publicans polled an nggroeateof HO.O'.IO
votes and the opposition polled 378,177,
or very much moro than two-fifths.
Ye.t tho Republicans have all of tho
twelve Senators from New Imgland,

the four Representatives. In New
Hampshire the Republicans polled bV
27 votes and tho opposition 15,480, yet
the Republicans hold on to both Sena

Rhode Island the Republicans hive
held on to power not only by unfair
apportionments, but by the most whole

The Republican Senators and Repre

of whom aro occupying seats to which
tiny aronot juMly entitled, have put
llumtelves Into positions of command

contributes enough to the National
Treasury to puy Its own officeholders,
prtkide over the Committees on Finance
and the Judiciary. The Massachusetts
Senators have the chairmanships of the
Committees on Privileges and Elections
and on Indian Affairs. Senator Aldrlch
of Rhode Island is chairman of the
Committee on Rules. The two Con
necticut Senators hold the Committees
on Territories and on Military Affairs.
Mr. DIvon of Rhode Islaud Is the only
New England Senator who i not chair

patch In to-day's New York Sun, there
were exacting critics in Washington,
who frequently found fault with Secre
tsty Bayard on the ground that he was
'exclusive" and extremely dlfrlcutt of
access. It would be Interesting to learn
from thoM critics of Mr. Bayard what

ami any fair-minded man whoever had
any business at the State Duinrtment
while he occupied It will admit that he
could be approached by a representa
tive of the press at almost any hour
while h was in the building or at
home. That is not the fact, however,
with Mr. Blaine. He is more "exclu
sive" than Secretary Kndlcott ever
thought of being while he was la charge
of "Msjah" Lee, ami it would be diffi
cult to nod the representative of a news

There is not much more to do bow
than there was then. There is not much
more dose than there was while Mr.
Bayard w u there, and some of the
things that have been done do not yet
appear to have bees perfect acts.
Some of the work accomplished by Mr.
Bayard has been undone, and bv-aad-by
it is likely that Mr. Blaine will do
it o tr again or Mr. Bayard's founds

That does aot appear to he good
enough or quick enough for Mr. Blaine.

fatally burned yesterday by her brother,
who is about a year younger. The
children had been thdilug, and the boy
built a tire to roast some frogs. Becom

her clothing became Ignited. He
thought he could extinguish the flames
wllhotit seriously Injuring her, but he
delayed too long, and all attempts to
put them out failed. In her despera

of the boy, whose clothing had also
caught fire. The little girl died a few
hours later. The ltoy Is badly burned,

miners' battitllpn of the National
Palace, there being present a large
concourse of military men ami civilians.
The Jury is composed of one major,
two captains, two lieutenants ami one
rtib-lliulcnant, with live substitutes,
ranging In rank from a captain down
to a sub-lieutenant. Colonel Sebastian
Hcrnandev. Cftrnasco, the second mill
taiy Judge, occupies the bench, and the
cure Is prosecuted by Colonel Rtfael
Acosta and Attorney Rafael tie Xaynt
Knrlquer. and defended by Attorney
TIIK AHTICt.K 1NKHI.XOKD.
The prisoner's case come, under sec
tion 8701 of the Military Code, which
says. "The olHcer who speaks dlspir

perior authorities of the nation, or who
gives utterance to things that might
cause lukenarmncaa or discontent in
the service, shall be chastised br ono

conllng to the gravity of the crime.
In Yturblde's case that part of tho
article referring to the disparagement
of surliir authorities ia the one under
which he Is court-marltaled. owing to
the publication of his letter In the TUm
newspaper, when In. while setting him
self tight in regard to an alleged Inter

he talks of the government otliclals.

The case waa opened by the prose
cuting attorney. Colonel Rafael Acosta,
who presented the results ot the pre

the evil iffcru of the principles enun
dated In Yturblde's letter to the

tion and uncalled for criticism of tho
supreme government. Seuor Agustln
Verdtigo, for the defense, claimed tint
It was the loalienuble right of a cltUeu
to criticise the government, be he la tbo
military service or not.
He said the criticism had been m lo
by Yturbide, In defense of bis charac
ter. In refuting statements set forth by
