FAINT-HEART IN POLITICS.
In spite of Mr. DIck'H protestations
that ho never has been In tho race, for
the Governorship nomination, wo etlll
think that he has been in, and that he
Is now out.
He came Into tho raro on Monday,
December Ihn Ifith, when a Ions dis
patch from Washington appeared In tho
tilovolund Leader, stating tho fact with
n great deal of detail, and clinching It
with the statement that ho had con
cluded to be a cnndldato only after n
protracted Intcrvlow hud with Mark
Tlanna tlin day before. Pains was tak
en to Assuro the Ohio public that the
conference with Hantia was remark
ably friendly. Tho Inference which the
author of that dispatch wanted tho peo
plo to draw from this was although ho
didn't quite daro say so -that Ilaiina
endorsed tho Dick boom thus launched.
Of course Mr. Dick was In no way
Ignorant of that dispatch. Its purpose
wns two-fold; the announcement was
to be put forward as a feeler, to sen
how the Ohio folks would taku it, ami
tho Hanna end of It was tho samo sort
of tactics formerly adopted by the
hfnthon In battle, who used to push
their idol ahead of them, In hopes that
Ills ugliness might scare tho enemy
Tho ovent showed that Herrlck too
had friends In tho state, and what Is
better In tho ejes of tho faithful, u
"barM." Nor did tho Idol game frighten
him; In fact Dick, It seems, did not
have control of tho idol at all; and
Mark Hanna so fur has refused to nrl
a a scarecrow for either faction, but
with the strong probabilities In favor
of bis helping Ilorrlck rather than
Dick, if really forced to take sides.
It Ih qulto useless for Mr. Dick to
piny tlio port of tho coy maiden any
longer in this matter, and to krcp on
faying that he never yet has said he
wantod tho nomination. Derrick does
want it, and will Bay ho wants It, with-
In a few days. And what Is more, he
will fight for It. Dick will do neither.
To got ft nomination In Ohio, thet-e
days, ono must go where It Is. Hcrrlrk
is headed straight for It. Folks hate
t. quitter, anyhow. Tho man who sos
he wants n thing ana then goes for it.
will hnve delegate whon convention
timo comes round. Tho one who
spondfl the Intervening six months In
assuring pcoplo that he never yet has
itald he was or was not a candidate Is
not likely to have any. I.ota of folks
Jt aren't said so, either. And yet they
nro not apt to tin nominated for Gov
ernor because they haven't.
It Is the opinion of most folks hero
that If our townsman had seen tit to
try conclusions with Herrlck by waging
an early and vigorous fight, he might
have been easily succcumrnl. Hut tho
wpltiug and watching and do-nothing
policy Indicated In hit statements of
yesterday, is not calculated to win, In
the faco of an nggroaslvo opposition.
Now-n daya ixilltlcal plums do not drop
Into ono'n mouth, no matter how Invit
ingly It may bo open. Tho tree must t0
rigorously shaken, and Dick's Inter
view eeoras to show that bo Is not go
ing to ho much as thresh any of the
Ho we look upon Mr. Dick's candl-
dnoy as ono of tho hasticeus: it iiics
with tho year.
It may, however, have some after ef
fect not anticipated when it was start

off footwear of Congressman Dick,
whom they thus early and eagerly ns

This, together with the fact that the
four years that must elapse beforo tho
gubernatorial plate is again to bo
passed around Is a long while, may be
the beginning of the cud.
Tho Republican Governor of Iowa
has just been Interviewed upon tho
subject of tnrlft reduction, and among
other things, says: "There nro duties,
notably in tho lion mid steel schedule,
nlthough not contlned to it, which are
wholly indefensible, which no man will
over attempt to defend, and which
nro as much nt wnr with the real ob
ject of protection as freo trodo It
self. Thoy can bo greatly reduced
and still the American mnuufacturci
will occupy tho wholo American mar
ket, pay tho highest American wages,
nnd bo rewarded with an ample Ameri
can profit, and therefore they ought
to bo reduced not years hence, but
now.' People of tho remainder of tho
country would have reason to rojolco
If tho Iowa Idea, thus briefly expressed
by Governor Cummins, were to be
come general throughout the states.
Governor-elect Italley, of Kansas, Is
still unmarried, although he promised
before tho election that If he won out
ho would surely tnko a wife. Can It bo
that there, nro no suitable women In
Kansas, or Is Mr. Ilalloy really finding
It harder to win bride than ho did to
capture the oftlec of Governor?
So far as action and excitement are
concerned, tho much-heralded war
against the trusts seems to bo u fiasco.
(I'mm tho ColiinilitM I'ren.)

Now wo seo the place hunters Jour

Is It any wonder that such a scene
as that enacted nt Cleveland, Satur
day, should arouse mingled feelings of
disgust and Indignation among all
thoro who, regardless of party affilia
tions, bellovo In decency In politics?
Havo Dick, Dougherty, Nnvln, Her

of the vast continent to meet nnd make
each other's acquaintance under tho
aegis of the enipcror-klng, comparing

The program of the festivities opened

there will bo exhibitions of fireworks
on the great open couitard of Jumma

It's now about time for the Youngs

with the women of Rarberton. For
more than a week It has been using
them as a chopping block upon which
to hack at evils existing among tho
women of Its own town, and ns u
consequence the odium attached lo
the conduct of the real offenders is
being sidetracked to innocent parties.
Not long ago some eorrespondi nt pos

This Is tho season of tho year when
