They have rejected a nomination made
by their own President of aman of un
doubted political influenco and ability in
a stalo that Is, and must lajorsome time,
a doubtful state. But they hare done
more than this. They have Justified a
general suspicion as to tho purity of the
senate. They have given reason for tho
opinion that there are enough republican,
senators to turn the scale on any ques
tion, who ore actuated by motives that
are not honorable, and that these motives
are strong enough to overcome party fi
delity and to break down party discipline.
This opinion will certainly be held large
ly in Ohio, and It will be spread with the
greatest zeal and persistency by the most
popular paper la that state. It can not
but Lave a very considerable influence
upon ths fortunes of tho party there,
and It will havo a decided Influence upon
public opinion throughout tho country.
Whether Halstcad was rlcbt or wheth
er ho was too harsh In his Judgment, tho
rejection or his appointment by the re
publican senators was a petty action
based on personal motives of revenge.
If Halstcad had sinned ihe senators of
his party who were moved by their ner.
sonal hostility to vote against the confir
mation or his appointment were actuated
by small impulses.
There are tew Intelligent and well in

of that colossal monopoly, the Standard
Oil Company. If, Payne had been In

New York Tribune.
The great cause of the tnadcauacvof
- -r -
of our naval force is that democratic
representatives persistently refused, on
partisan grounds alone, the appropria
tions wnlcu republican administrations
asked, which were actually uccessary to
put ths navy in proper condition, and
which were voted without hesitation as
soon as there was a democratic adminis
tration to spend the money. This nag-
sage of American history is not so
pleasant that anybody would needlessly
recall it Democratic leaders and Jour
nals would gladly forget It now, because
It discloses a spiteful and mallgant part
isanship which was ready to sacrifice
the most vital Interests of the nation in
order to serve a political end. Which
democratic leaders were charged with
.this, they constantly replied that reason
able appropriations and reasonable dis
cretionary power to the administration
were refused because democrats were
not willing to trust republican officials
wltlv tat work. The money would be
used, it was said acaln and acaln. in
filling navy yards prior to elections, or
m promoting the success of parly In
other ways. On no such unpatriotic
pretences did republicans refuse liberal
appropriations when a democratic ad
ministration came in. Tho power of
administration was shamefullsnscd
it is true. But republicans havo felt
that it was their duty to provide
liberally for the national defence, and
to leave the responsibility as to the use
or abuse of Its trust to tho ndministra
lion. Had democrats in congress nur
sued the samo manly and patriotic courso

No bill before tho legislature was the
object of so much Interest as the assess

convention in Nashville praying for
relief from tho evils of taxation upon the
certificates of stock of incorporated
business enterprises, as per tho act of
1887. The legislature heard the prayer
and the assessment bill Is without a
provision for this form of taxation, and

Great Rain Storms. In an investiga
tion of 100 cases of rain-fall rancins
from nine to twelve inches in eight hours,
Prof. E. Loomis has fouud the area of
ono inch rain-fall to have extended at
least 500 miles in length in ten cases,
and to havo exceeded 700 miles in three
cases; whilo tho entire rain-area was fre
quently an oval figure exceeding 1,000
miles In length by 500 miles in breadth.
concerning these heavy rains the follow.
log facts seem well established: 1. No
great barometric depression with steep
gradients ever occurs without consider
able rain. This is true not only for the
tnuea states, but also for tho cyclones
of tho West Indies, tho China Sea, India
and tho Bay of Bengal. 2. In great
rain storms tho barometric nressuro pen.
erally diminishes, while the rainfall in-
creases. 3. The greatest depression of
the barometer generally occurs about
twelve hours after tho greatest raln-fall.
4. A treat fall of rain Is favorable to a
ropld progress of tho centre of least pres
sure, while a small rainfall is generally
attended by a less rapid progress. It Is,
however, plain that tho rato of progress
of a low ccntro depends partly upon
other causes than amount or rainfall.
