It is claimed that the nomination of
General Harrison was mainly accom

convention. Tho claim has no effect

Of all tho classical, scholarly, eloquent,
dignified, state3manly speeches made at
Chicago that of Governor Porter, of In
diana, in presenting the name of General
Harrison is said by critics to have ex
colled. But, there is nothing strange
about that; having superior native foi cu
bic ability the speaker's subject was an
inspiration. Ho couldn't help but de

demagogues would have a poor show in
Absolutely tho only thing any Demo
cratic contemporary has yet found to
nllege against General Harriso-i person
ally is that he is tho grandson of his
grandfather. As the campaign advances
perhaps they may vary the proceedings
by reproaching him with being the great
grandson of his great grandfather. Gen
eral Harrison is lunning on his own
merits, and his party's, not on his an
cestry; but heriditary ability and patriot
ism are not bad things to have in a candi
date, antecedents conspicuously absent
from the head of the Democratic ticket.

COURAGE VS RECKLESSNESS.
True courage and genuine bravery aro
qualities that are universally admired
wherever and under whatever circum
stances, but there is a marked distinc
tion between these and hardihood and
recklessness, exhibitions of which latter
produce a feeling of pity if not contempt
and disgust. "Without following out in
detail and by illustration tho contrast
drawn by these characteristics as they
prompt men to action, we simply wish
to call attention to the persistence of Mr.
Cleveland in displaying the latter quali
ties by vetoing private measures passed
by congress in some cases by the unan
imous vote of both houses for the re
lief and benefit of ex-soldiers of the
Union army. It is needless to discuss
the merits of these measures; they are
invariably referied to and pass
ed upon by a committee befoie
being acted upon in either house, which
committee is not only morally and intel
lectually competent to pass upon the
merits of the claims involved, but are
aided by all the proofs necessary to en
able them to arrive at a just decision in
each case. In view, therefore, of such
proceeding on the part of the people's
representatives, who constitute an inde
pendent department of the government
and who are responsible to the lieople,
not the president, for their acts, for that
official to arrogate to himself dictatorial
functions and by vetoing such measures
as we have named, or any other as for
that, under like circumstances, is but to
invito criticism and censure from all
without regard to party affiliation, and
force the conviction that he is of the
second class mentioned above. Mr.
Cleveland's vetoes of pension bills at any
time, and more particularly at the pies
ent juncture, cannot be characterized as
displays of true courage, but foolhardy
AS TO DARK HORSES.
When the great Chicago convention,
a week ago this evening, adjourned un
til 10 o'clock Monday morning, the first
thought that suggested itself to the minds
of ninety-nine out of every hundred per
sons who had been watching the pro
ceedings of the convention as announced
in the dispatches was.the nominee would
bo either Blaine or a dark horse. But
political conventions are not bound by
the rules of logic as the sequel in this
case shows. Mr. Blaine's name was
never formally presented before the con
vention, nor was it necessary at any time
for tho convention to resort to tho expe
diency of bringing forward a new name;
it was no very difficult matter to make a
choice when the bearings had all been
taken and the situation pioperly consid
ered. Unlike Abraham Lincoln. R. B.
Hayes and James A. Garfield tho nomi
nation of Benjamin Harrison was not
As to other daik horse candidates,
James K. Polk had not been mentioned
or thought of for that office until tho
convention which nominated him iiad
canvassed about everybody else. The
same is true of Franklin Pierce, the first
Buffalo Fortunatus. Mr. Polk was
thought to lower the standard of presi
dents, though he had been speaker of the
house of congress. Franklin Pierce had
been a United States senator, but had
failed to make a reputation, and had re
tired from public life. Both of these
nominations proved to be highly success
ful. DEMOCRATIC DEMAGOGY.
Democratic journals afford amusing
reading just now. More than three
fourths of them make frantic protest
against the Democratic party being re
garded as opposed to protection, and
insist with pitiful pleading that Mr.
Cleveland is not in favor of free trade.
This is tho popular style and tone of the
average Democratic leader of today.
This is the burden of the Democratic
The woods aie full of men who pro
claim with one hi eath that they are not
fiee traders, but who in the next
savagely attack the whole tariff system
as wicked and unjust. The man who
wrote the following is for Cleveland,
and if anyone should hint that he and
his candidate are free traders, he would
probably say, in tho language of the
great and good Daniel Dougheih , "You
are a liar, sir!"' Yet hero is tho way ho
denounces the tariff laws. He speaks
not of high tariff or low tarilT, but of the
whole or custom house system:
It is unequal in its distribution of bur
dens, bearing more heavily on thoso least

paths of our legislators. It encourages
lavish expenditure of tho people's money.
It fosters trusts and combines. It con
centrates capital in the hands of a few.
This is a fair sample of the Demo
cratic method of presenting the ques
tion. It is simply an array of assertions
without so much as a pretense of reason
or argument to sustain them, in tho ab
sence of which it is only necessary to
point to the accomplished facts of the
financial and industrial development of
the country, tho results of the system

A MATCHLESS ARRAY OP TALENT.
One of the most pleasing features of
the Chicago convention, one that has
been a matter of gratifying comment to
every Republican, was the large number
of great and illustrious names from
which to choose a leader. The wealth
of statesmanship, devotion to public
service and to principle, integrity and
high character which is the heritage of
the Republican party, was never better
shown than in the field of candidates
presented at that convention. With

wero more available than others, and in J reserved and enthusiastic. Xbrdid their
going to Indiana for its candidate the
party recognized the strategic nosition 1
he occupied, and decided that it gave
him strength above tho others. But it
was a noble group of candidates, any
one of them worthy and well qualified
for the highest office in the land and de
serving of the hfeh honors which the
party gives to its worthiest sons.
THE ''LEADER" PLAYED OUT.
Somebody, we never stopped to en
quire who, but some of them living here
in Wichita, started a prohibition or third
party organ in Wichita, a short time
since, named the Leader. Because a few
third party-ites and Democrats run Gov
ernor Martin and the executive council,
the runners of this "Loader" got the
idea, we suppose, that it would jump to
the front as an organ of something or
somebody. But the men who sustain
pie police commission rule of this city
are not noted for sustaining anything
which touches their pockets in a berious
way. They are for themselves. The
Leader fellows, who promised to swing
Heaven and earth, soon found this out,
so they moved their organ to the great
prohibition stronghold of Topeka in
order that they might be closer to their
patron saints, we suppose. These patron
saints at Topeka proved to be great
posers when it comes to making Wichita
sweat, but weak enough otherwise, so
the great Leader collapses with the woe
ful wail that "the Prohibition party of
Kansas is a farce and a fraud, that it is
financially bankrupt,"' and that, as for
honor, that with the party "is an un
known quantity, so infinitesimally small
that a microscope of the most powerful
lens would fail to discover the remotest
resemblance to the least possible degree
of such an attribute."
THE CANDIDATES fK CONTRAST.
The St. Louis convention had no con
sideration of candidates. It simply met
to nominate a man unknown eight
years ago, neither as statesman, a scholar
nor a soldier, but tho most conspicuous
creation of luck and circumstances that
this century has pioduced. Nor was he
nominated because he possessed tho af
fection of liis party, but polely because
he had the luck to "get there" and the
desire for the spoils of office made his
party seek to retain him for its figure
head. How different the exhibition made by
the Republican party at Chicago. Hero
were a dozen candidates of national rep
utation, most of whom were known and
admired before G rover Clevolaud was
discovered as the sheriff of Erie connty,
and all of whom are his superiors in
most of those qualities of mind and
character, which have been regarded
heretofore as essentials for a presidential
candidate. What paity would not be
proud of having such men in its ranks as
tho list of unsuccessful candidates be
fore the Chicago convention? And back
of all the great leader who could so
easily have received the honor, and re
fused it? And all will cheerfully ac
cept the result and give their energies to
win success for the great party which is
more than any candidate.
NO MONEY DIFFERENCE.
The Kingman Democrat says that tho
Eagle fairly voices the condition of tho
Republican part'. Well, that's what
wo are here for. But tho Democrat will
pleaso allow us to suggest that the
trouble with the bourbon organ of King
man, probably, is, that it fails to catch
understanding the said voicing of tho
Eagle. There are no desperate straits
nor humiliations. Financially speaking
it won't make one cent's difference to tho
Eagle which national party holds the
reins. Our fight is for principles, for the
future good of this republic, for tho
"millions yet to be," and while wo work
for votes it is for intelligent votes.
An eastern newspaper prints what
purports to be the true figures of the ex
penditure made by patties in presiden
tial elections. It says that Samuel J.
Tilden's personal output in 187G was
$SG3,000: that in 1SS0 the Republicans
sent to Indiana 1,125,000 and tho Dem
ocrats $710,000. As to the election of
1SS-1 the figures are appioximate, but
serve to show the growing costliness of
American elections. While the extrava
gant use of money in political cam
paigns for tho purpose of controlling elec
tion is to be deprecated, and should be
discouraged by all good people because
of its baneful, corrupting influence-upon
the young men of the country, the use
of more or less money is necessary for
legitimato purposes in every campaign.
It costs money to print ballots, pay
speakers and other incidental etceteras.
In answer to a correspondent who
casually inquires whether Allen G.
Thurman's bandana will reach around
Cleveland's nock, the New York Sun re
plies that it depends on the relative sizo
of the neck and the elasticity of the ban
dana. It is by such signs as these that
Mr. Dana's enlarged sand-craw stands
revealed. Ho ran an anti-Democratic
paper four years ago for Democrats who
wouldn't buy it, and has since had to
mortgage his home and office. But here
he is, just as the chance comes to rein
state himself, bristling about the stage
and making very wry faces at the Demo
cratic audience. Either Mr. Dana is
going to turn Republican, or like the
Bowery hero, described by the gallery
god, he moans to "walk down to do foot
lights, fire two boss pistols in de air and
die like a sun-of-a-gun."

GENERAL HARRISON'S SYMPATHY
On the night of December 5, 1887, the
people of Indianapolis gave a reception
to Hon. Arthur O'Conner and Sir Thomas
Grattan Esmonde, Irish members of
parliament. After the speeches of the
two honorable visitors, General Harri
son, who was present on the platform
with others, was called for, and spoke
for a minute or two before adjourn
ment. He said he was glad to have
heard the distinguished gentlemen who
stand for Ireland in the English parlia
ment, and most so because they had
brought out so strongly the power of
self-command of the Irish people. We
are accustomed to think of the Irish
man as a Teckless, daring man, who
would throw himself on the bayonets of
his oppressors, but in this particular, of
the steady, calm submission to oppres
sive laws, he appears as a greater and
stronger man. William O'Brien is doing
more for Ireland in Tullamore jail than
he could by armed resistance, and there
is no intelligent man who would not
rather be William O'Brien today than
the lord-lieutenant m Dablin castle.
ITS NONE OF YOUR BUSINESS.
Under the above heading, the Portland
Oregonian calls attention to these facts:
The total vote of Oregon this vear a

present congress. The total rote cast

Kansas sends seven representatives to
congress with 251,971 votes. Mississippi
sends the same number with 44,557 votes.
In South Carolina, Alabama, and other
southern states the conditions are about
the same as in Georgia and Mississippi.
"In other words," says the Oregonian,
'the south gets its representation in con
gress and in the electoral college on the
basis of a large population whose
vote is suppressed, coerced or thrown
out of the count. True. 153 votes in tho
electoral college are assured to the Dem
ocratic party without another effort than
that required to write the certificates of
election, Forty-eight more in the north
would give Cleveland another term. In
the Louisiana election of April last the
gove.mor issued orders to coerce or fabri
cate Democratic majorities, and when
Ingalls in the senate denounced the as
tounding spurious majority that was
produced. Senator Eustis arose and in
solently told him, 'it is none of your
business.' That is, the south by "sup
pression of the ballot and burlesque of
the ballot box steals thirty-three addi
tional members of congress and imposes
a 'fore quarter of Democratic beet' on
tho country for president."
LIVE CAMPAIGN THOUGHTS.
From the Pen of Noble Pientls.
The opposition the bourbons, the free
traders, the mugwumps say the nomi
nation of Harrison falls flat. That is
what the opposition said when Garfield
was nominated. That is where thev
were mistaken, to put it mildly, then,
and where they are mistaken now.
The outward signs of satisfaction at
the nomination of General Harrison aro
quite as hearty as those which greeted
the nomination of the afterward victor
ious Garfield, and we may remark, in
passing, that thoy aro much heartier than
have so far greeted the second nomina
tion of Grover Cleveland.
Moreover, the words of approval are
given without any mental reservation.
There was a holding back when Garfield
was nominated. It would do no good to
tell what may bo told of Roscoe Conk-
line's attitude and that of others. Tho
flames burnt out openly as soon as Gar-1
held was inaugurated: even his blood did
not quench their fires.
It is not so now. The names of Har-
rison and Morton are received with an
acclaim in which there is no huppressed
voice, no false note. There is no Repub
lican in this country carrying a knife
under his cloak.
The Republican paity has learned the
"uses of' adveisity." Men who have
quarreled about offices have found
out how it is when there aro no
offices to havo or hold. The Union
soldier has found out what it is to havo
in the presidential chair a Pharaoh who
knows htm not. Tho Union soldiers
who voted for Grover Cleveland, and
enough so voted to elect him, havo found
out what it is to have for president a
man whose heart never beat faster to the
roll of tho Union drums, who lived dur
ing tho great war as silent, unheard-of
and unmoved as the mud-turtle in the
bottom of the pond in winter time; who
has seen fit to make petitions to soldiers
for pensions the subjects of his awkward,
hog-on-ice humor, and who has betrayed
himself to maay other actions showing
that the struggles and agonies through
which his country was saved mado no
more impression on his stolid mind than
the soft-falling dews of the evening upon
the back of a rhinocerous. The soldier
who voted for Grover Cleveland four
years ago knows moro now than he did
then. He will profit by the lesson and
returning to the colors, will stay with
his comrades for the rest of the few
years that are left him in this world.
Of the mugwumps who sit in the private
boxes, wo do not havo much hopes.
The gods have been caught napping, and
are mad because they were waked up.
These lofty creatures will never confess
that they have made a mistake. They
will stay where they are, ' 'beholding
Heaven and feeling hell,"' and declaring
that they enjov it very much indeed.
But the common men, just ordinary
human beings, who were "wanting a
change'" will discover that they have got
it, and don't want any more of that kind.
All these will get back into the Republi
can ranks, but it will be done quietly.
"The campaign will increase in interest.
It will require some thought to compre
hend the issue. Thinking has a tendency
to make Republicans, iust as imorance
is the fertilrzer of Democracy. If a man )
studies the Questions .ind feels that lie I
cqmprehends them he will have too much
intellectual pnde thereafter to be a Dem
ocrat. The longer the campaign the
more intelligence will increase, and with
it the Republican vote.
The people will take the measure of
the men; two Patriots against two Cop
perheads. A gentleman as opposed to
Cleveland; a soldier as against a man
who hated soldiers; a scholar and an
orator as against the Democrat, who,
at the University of Virginia made the
