Democratic Dissatisfaction In tbe South
and on the Facliio Slope.
The more sagacious Democratic pa
pers in the East and South are careful
ly, but quite earnestly, suggesting to
their party the obvious dangers in the
coming Free-Trade campaign which
Mi. Cleveland has precipitated on the
party. Even Mr. Cai lisle and hit,
wisest Democratic advisers have shown
natural solicitude as to the unexpected
prominence of an issue on which the
Democracy has an impossible campaign
before it in Pennsylvania and on which
the hevr York, New Jersey and Con
necticut Democrats are divided. The
Sun reminds the Free-Trade Democrats
of the fact that the first Morrison Tariff
bill resulted in reducing the Democrat
ic majority in the House from sixty
nine in the Forty-eighth Congress to
forty in the Foriy-ninth Congress, and
the second Morrison bill reduced that
majority from forty to twelve, the lat
ter majority being the narrow margin
in the present House.
From the Pacific roast we get equal
ly decided Democratic expressions of
discontent and apprehension. Take,
for instance, the Democratic San Fran
cisco Call, which sets out by making
these very su gestive observations:
"The notion has got out somehow that
Mr. Cleveland is the strongest man in
his party but the message which he
has transmitted to Congress will set
the thinking men of the party to
thinking. Can the party go before
the people on the tariff platform the
President has constructed? Demo
crats who remember the excitement in
labor circles when General Hancock
made a remark which permitted the
impression that he was not in prin
ciple in favor of a protective tariff will
experience some apprehension of the
result should the party nominate a
tnan who has gone out ot his way to
make a tariff for revenue only the
central plank in the Democratic plat
Our Democratic San Francisco con
temporaxy insists that a very large
portion of the party is as sound on the
tariff question as any Republican.
They are Democrats on other issues,
and have had no occasion to choose
between free trade and affiliation with
the Republican party. They have
seen the way to be Democrats and pro
tectionists. The President now, in an
official assumption of leadership, de
clares that the policy of the party is,
if not exactly free trade, a full face
attitude in that direction. The Demo
crats in Congress and in the National
Convention will have to choose be
tween the overthrow of Mr. Cleveland
and the acceptance of his tariff views.
It will not be of any use to nominate
Mr. Cleveland and the#skirmish along
the protection line. Whether Mr.
Cleveland actually proposes free trade
or not, he will be regarded as a free
trade candidate. The party under his
leadership will have to bear the brunt
of an attack from all along the pro
The conclusion to which the Call
comes is that the American people are
intelligent enough to know that "it
prill sat lux aixnply tlio thi'oo million
people whom Mr. Cleveland fancied
were especially included in the preser
vation of the protective policy, but the
fourteen millions who are otherwise
engaged in industrial pursuits as well.
The average American citizen does not
need to be told that a reduction of the
wages of one-fourth of their number
will bring about a reduction for the
whole. The factory operative who
Submits to a reduction of forty per
cent, in wages will expect his carpen
ter, his tailor, his produce dealer, and
all others with whom he deals, to re
duce prices correspondingly and if
they do not, he will take up -ome line
of employment in which the standard
is maintained, and thus, in seeking to
help himself, in effect assist to bring
about an equilibiium in rates of com
pensation for labor."
These Democratic utterances from
the Pacific coast are calculated to help
Buch Northern Democratic papers as the
Sun and such Southern Democratic pa
pers as the Atlanta Constitution to sus
tain Mr. Randall in his hostility to the
doctirnes and policies of Mr. Cleveland's
message. But Mr. Cleveland thor
oughly believes the constant adulation
of the mugwumps, and that they are
fight in insisting not only that he is
"better than his party," but that he is
"stronger than his party," and he will
not yield an inch to all the protests of
the Protectionist Democrats. The fight
for Cleveland's re-election must be
made on his Free Trade message, and
the result next November will show
how futile it is for even the luckiest of
candidates to imagine that he can con
trol or direct the whirlwind of Repub
lican enthusiasm or the storm of Dem
ocratic discontent that he has been the
means of evoking.N. Y. Mail and Ex
A UNIFORM STANDARD.
Why Congressional Elections Can Be
Brought Within National Control.
Senator Chandler holds unassailable
ground when he assumes that Con
gressional elections are National
elections, in a sense broad enough to
bring them within National control.
The only obvious objection to his bill
is that it is limited in the applica
tion of its provisions. There should
be a uniform standard of qualification
ifor voters at National elections. South
Carolina or Rhode Island, Pennsyl
vania or Tennessee, Massachusetts or
Florida may each have a right to pre
scribe or direct property qualification,
las Rhode Island does, or a tax-paying
(qualification, as Pennsylvania does,
'for voters at State elections, but the
qualification to vote upon National is
sues involved in the election of Presi
dents and Congressmen should be one
and the same in all States.
It is well to decree that the "certifi
cate of registration in South Carolina
shall not have attached any voting
conditions relative to property or oth
er qualifications," but if such decree be
(made and enforced as to South Caro
lina it should be made and enforced as
to every other State. The one thing
'that Republicanism can not do and
live is to frame either sectional or
class legislation. What is demanded
by every instinct of justice is that Na
tional elections Bhall be as frea and
of States. I is notorious that they are
not. Mr. Chandler's bill provides
means for the enforcement of fairness
in National elections, and it should be
made applicable to every precinct in
which a polling-place is opened in
It may be a debatable point as to
whether non-tax-payers should be in
trusted with the voting power, but it
is not a debatable point that if the
power to prohibit them from voting
exists in Rhode Island or Pennsylvania
or Georgia, it exists everywhere. And
if South Carolina or Texas can so ar
range its polling-places and its hours
of voting as to prevent all but those
who can ride thither from the exercise
of the ballot, it follows that Illinois or
Indiana can do likewise. It is doubt
less true that the founders of the Re
public contemplated manhood suffrage,
without other check or limit than
soundness of mind and freedom from
conviction of crime, and it is very
doubtful whether a more judicious
standard of qualification can be de
vised. But whatever the standard be,
it should be the same everywhere.

STORIES OF ELEPHANTS.
The Esteem fn Which the Huire Animals
Were He'd bv the Ancients.
The ancients, who are sparing in their
praises of tbe dog, (by far the larger
part of the world has always abhorred
him as the very type of uncleanness),
could not speak too highly of the ele
phant. The elder Pliny, who was a
diligent collector of anecdotes rather
than an observer, surpasses himself
when he treats of this animal. He
places him as unquestionably next to
man. Intelligence, obedience, memory,
ambition, affection, honesty, prudence
and justice are among the catalogue of
virtues which he ascribes to these crea
tures. He even declares that tbey are
religious, worshiping the stars, the sun
and the moon, an assertion in which
he is followed by utarch and 2Eliu.ii.
The stories which he tells of their sa
gacity and aptitude for acquiring ac
complishments are marvelous. That
they should go through the motions oi
a dance or a g.ladiatorial combat is cred
ible. Busbecq tells of one which he
himself saw in Turkey that danced and
played at ball. But our faith is taxed
when we read of four elephants
walking on tight ropes, carrying
another in a litter. Yet the testimony
of the ancients as to this particular ac
complishment is very strong. Possibly
the funambulism of elephants is one of
the lost arts of antiquity. Writing
also is an accomplishment which we
fear the animal no longer acquires.
Mucianus, the friend of Vespasian,
knew of an animal which could write a
Greek hexameter, not, however, out of
its own head and we have a pathetic
story of one which, having been beaten
for beiDg somewhat backward in its
readingfor the elephants own the
human trait of having dunces among
themwas found diligently conning its
task by night. It was, however, in a
sterner character than that of dancer
or scholar that antiquity best knew the
elephant He was a most formidable
implement of war. The Carthaginians
were the first so to utilize him in Euro
pean warfare, and it is a remarkable
fact that they, and they only, have
been able to educate the African
species of the race for human uses. It
may be doubted, indeed, whether the
military utility of the animal compen
sated for the enormous expense and
trouble which he must have caused. If
Hannibal had not lost all his elephants
but one almost before he began his cam
paign he would certainly have found it
impossible to feed them. Their use, in
deed, in Western warfare has not been
frequent One of the latest occasions
of their employment seems to have
been by the Emperor Claudius when he
invaded Britain in the third year of his
reign. They are still found, but for
show rather than use, in the military
establishments of the East. But it is
clear that they could not exist in the
face of the aims of precision.London

Sr"4\ Got the Girl He Wanted.
A story is told in Brooklyn society of
the sudden appearance of a former res
ident with a large diamond and an
ambition, equally glittering, to marry
a former sweetheart if he could. He
had been to Australia, made a pile,
and was coming back to stay long
enough to get a wife, give her the
diamond, marry her, and take her back
there. Unfortunately, the girl of his
choice was engaged and about to
marry. The Australian went sadly
away without having shown his dia
mond, and in a day or two he gave it
to another old acquaintance. Then he
called upon *he lady of his choice to
bid her good-by, and she told him that
she had been thinking the matter over
and had found that she loved him
better than she loved the man to whom
she was engaged. Back went the
young man to the gi to whom he had
made a present of his diamond and
persuaded her to give it to him and take
its worth in money or another jewel.
He then took the diamond to the girl
for whom it was intended, and frtae be
came his wife and they have sailed for

bodies, and very short lears. Their
horns are small and sharp pointed the
hair, long, straight, and pure white,
is almost as fine as the Ansrora goat.
They inhabit the loftiest" and most
rocky points of the Sawtooth Range of
mountains in this Territory, and are
not to be found anywhere else in the
United States. They are ver active,
and travel with great swiftness, mak
ing incredible leaps and scaling cliffs
where it would be almost impossible
for a man to find a foothold. The
Sawtooth Mountains are also the habi

known except in Europenamely: the

mals have been seen, but none, so far
as we know, have ever been killed.
