REPUBLICAN OVER CONFIDENCE I
Some how or other by the very na
ture of it the Republican party is ar
rogant I is so even in defeat From
the wreckage of defeat and the facts
all against it its leaders will look up
and say claim everything I arro
gant under these circumstances it is
doubly so in the anticipation of victory
and still more so when there is really
a bright prospect of success Taking
into account this disposition of i and
the unusually bright prospect just now
for its success in the approaching na
tional election I Is no wonder that
the Republican party displays this of
fensive quality of Its character And
not only is it displayed towards the
opposing party but to the prosilver
elements within its own party A
Washington correspondent to an east
ern Republican paper said that the
Republican leaders in congress regard
ed with indifference the threat of the
prosilver Republicans to bolt the St
Louis convention
This indifference grows out of the
fact of course that they have made
the count of electoral votes they re
quire to carry the election and have
made up their minds that they can get
along without the assistance of the
Republican silver states and their
forty electoral votes
The antisilver Republicans build
their hopes upon carrying the follow
ing states whose electoral votes we
append
New York 36
Connecticut 6
Delaware 8
Illinois 24
Indiana 15
Iowa 13
Maine 6
Maryland 8
Massachusetts 15
Michigan 14
Minnesota 9
New Hampshire 4
New Jersey 10
Ohio 23
Pennsylvania 32
Rhode Island 4
Vermont 4
West Virginia 6
Wisconsin 12
Total 244
As there are but 447 votes in the elec
toral college 224 being a majority the
244 votes of the states given above if
carried by the Republicans would give
I them 20 over the necessary number to
electhence eastern Republican indif
ference to western support hence too
Republican arrogance After review
ing tlife above claims of the antisilver
Republicans the St Louis GlobeDem
ocrat says
I
Here are facts which should be de
cisive in the St Louis convention A
cleancut and vigorous utterance
against free coinage is demanded by a
overwhelming majority of the Repub I
lican voters The declaration or 1892
was all right at that time for the sil
yen states were fairly well satisfied
with the Sherman law then In opera
tion Subsequently however public
sentiment forced congress to repeal
that vicious act and now the silver
men want something worse in its
place The changed situation necessi
tates a more robust antisilver declar
ation than that of four years ago
Something is demanded in 1S96 which
explains itself which will stand for
the same thing In Nevada and New
York and which will mean a dollar
that is worth lOOc In gold at all times
in all places and in all circumstances
Under that sign the Republicans can
conquer
Of course i is possible that the cal
culations of the antisilver Republicans
cans may fail the best laid schemes
O mice and men
Gang aft aglee
and so it may be in this case and
their very overconfidence may be an
element that will contribute to their
overthrow For as whom the gods
would destroy they first make mad

POSTOFFJCE LOCATION
The arrival in this city yesterday of
Mr Nichols inspector of postoffices for
several western states and who will
open the several bids for postoffice
quarters In this city renewed the in
terest in that subject and occasioned
something of a flutter among the re
spective east side and west side bidders
for the postoffice Just how far Mr
influence the department
Nichols may properly infuenc de
partment at Washington in reaching
a decision on the location of the office
we dont know but doubtless some
thing in the way of recommendation
from him will be asked and in that
event it i fortunate that he is ac
quainted with the claims of the re
spective localities seeking to secure the
office and can and beyond question
will set forth the relative advantages
of the locations In that event we feel
confident that if the advantage of the
present quarters are taken into ac
count a magnificent building abund
ant office room for all departments of
the service splendid light central lo
cation convenience to railroads con
tiguity to chamber of commerce build
ing the impropriety of moving from a
convenient location in view of the fact
that the time cannot be far off when
we shall have a Unitel States public
If these advan
building in this cityIf
tages a properly set forth and we
have no doubt but what they will be
then we feel confident that there will
be no change In the present location
of the postoffice I i were a matter
about which the people of this city
could express their wishes we feel
confident there would be no
change from Its present location until
it could be moved permanently into a
government building Let the office

PROGRESS
Every day the sentiment seems to
be growing in the minds of Democrats I
both In the case of the single gold
standard advocates a well a among
the prosilver Democrats that the time
has come when there must b no pal
tering in a double sense with the finan
cial question at the coming national
convention The Democrats will do
well to bear In mind that this is not a
yellow dog year for their party says
the Chicago TimesHerald whatever it
may be for the Republicans
The people will bear no paltering in
a double sense from them They must
walk in the straight and narrow path
of absolute rectitude and must show
clean hands at each turning of the
road Honesty and a stanch declara
tion of principles can alone save them
in the congressional elections or give
them any chance whatever In the
electoral colleges If they do not ex
hibit these the Waterloo of 1894 will be
Ifollowed by a Sedan of 189G From this
point of view therefore it behooves
those who a now considering the fu
ture of the democracy not only to re I
solve upon the adoption of an honest
platform one that expresses precisely I
what it means but also to place upon
L < d
It a man who can cordially support the
platform
Continuing much in the same strain
and alluding to the Democratic situa
tion In Kentucky through putting un
sound money candidates on a sound
money platform the TimesHerald
finally remarks
The leaders of the Democratic party
have been brought face t face with
questions they cannot ignore or sink
out of sight They must choose which
master they will serve and under
which king they will carry the banner
They must declare for sound money
with no uncertain meaning or throw
their fortunes in with the mining
camps They are in no position to put
before the people a declaration of pxin
clples that may be construed one way
in one section of the union and an
other way in another section
We rather like to hear that kind of
talk and we trust that the courage of
the single gold standard Democrats
will not fail them in the national con
vention but that they will be as deter
mined to wtfte in the platform a
straight single gold stand plank as we
hope to see the prosilver men de
termined to write in that platform a free
coinage plank I each wing of the
party will have the strength of cour
age to do that and either accept the de
cision arrived at or leave the conven
tion we shall be able to begin to each
respect the other however widely we
may differ on the question of finance
and by such action we shall put the
great question of bimetallism In the
way of right settlement
The silver Democrats of Missouri
seem determined to send a solid dele
gation to the Chicago convention
They have a right to do so and they
may by pursuing that policy accom
pUsh a great deal for silver in the Na
tional convention I begins to look
a though the silver men would have
a majority of votes at Chicago I they
compel the convention to declare for
the unrestricted coinage of silver with
out regard to the action of other na
tions and then nominate a candidate
in harmony with their view they will
cause the gold fanatics to bolt That
will do the Democratic party no harm
and it will tend td clear the silver
problem in this country from some of
the uncertainty which obscures its fu
ture at present
The above is from the Denver Re
publican What the Democrats of
Missouri are determined to do the
Democrats of other states are determined
mined to do and with very good pros
pects of success We believe that pro
silver Democrats if energetic can have
a majority in their national convention
and put the freecoinage question in
way df settlement and that within
the next presidential term of office if
the men who believe silver to be the
paramount issue will rally to the
standard that we believe Democrats
will campaign raise in the pending presidential
PROTEST AGAINST MILITARISM
Italy has met a great defeat in Abys
sinia and with every further account
i seems to grow greater The kingdom
is in an upheaval and the government
scare knows what to do Umberto
wishes to continue the war but Rudini
is very much opposed to such a policy
He seems to sense the temper of the
Italian people better than their mon
arch does Serious as is the defeat at
Adowa the riotous proceedings of the
people in the large towns are still more
serious I has been necessary to call
out the reserves of the class of 1872
which brings 80000 additional men into
service The great majority of these I
men are married and have families
Having to take the place of other regi
ments they are taken from their
usual occupations thus depriving their I
families of their chief or only support
This has brought forth strong protests
from the families of the men thus
called out and this protest has taken
the form of rioting Women and chil
dren it is stated lead the agitation
They lead i because they are deprived
of the support of husbands and fath
ers for well they know that when so
deprived the future is dark and uncer
tain Their agitation is a protest
against militarism though they fnay
not know I I is the system that
is today a curse to every country in
continental Europe burdening them
with taxes taking from the pursuits
of agriculture and commerce millions
of young men in the very flower of
their manhood It all means that the
producing capacity of the countries so
burdened is limited while their expen
ditures are correspondingly Increased
This disaster that has overtaken the
Italian army at Adowa while not of
great magnitude of Itself when viewed
from the modern standpoint of war
has very greatly deranged the entire
economic system of Italy Telegrams
from Rome bring the news that the
financial situation is alarming and i Is
hoped that this may bring about the
adoption of a policy of conciliation and
economy Every rumor of a regiment
being transferred from one garrison to
another fills the people with alarm and
leads to further demonstrations against
the government The people are re
fbelling against the system that is
crushing the very life out of them
Some day i must all cease ending in
a great reduction of the vast arma
ments or in universal anarchy Hu
man nature can stand so much and no
more In Europe the limits are fast
being reached when it can stand no
more The Abyssinian campaign
shows how close Italy ha come to
overstepping these limits
Edward W Bole in the March num
ber of the Ladies Home Journal writes
the following

contribution to American manhood or

S < we all thought until the Presi

missionary meeting of the Presbyter

overturned this doctrine and > substi

must also be confessed that removal
from old homes and associations to
new and more primitive homes has a
tendency among honest and respecta

breed evils indifferent to Christianiz

COHIMUXICATIOXS
PRIVILEGED C iD1XICATIOXS
The legislature has passed a libel
law that is extremely just and liberal
I does not give newspapers any
license but i gives them needed pro
tection where there may be a technical
libel but which is wholly uninten
tional and without malice I was
and will work injury
proper legislation wi
jury to no one I was the putting
into the form of law the public senti
ment on the question and such being
the case it meets with approval Now
there is another bill before the legisla
ture in which newspapers are much
interested and in which the people also
have deep interest I is senate bill
No 101 introduced by Senator Glen
Miller of Salt Lake county entitled
An act to protect journalists in the
of
4news The provisions
securing o news
the bill are a follows
No person engaged in connected
with or employed on a newspaper or
journal shall be compelled to disclose
in amy legal proceedings or trial or be
fore any committee of the legislature or
elsewhere the source of any news or
information procured or obtained by
him for and published i the newspa
per or journal on which he is engaged
connected or employed
This act shall not abridge or impair
the right of the people to commence
and maintain a criminal prosecution
remedy of any
for libel or the right or
person to maintain an action fo dam
ages on account of said publication
We believe there is no necessity for
any such a law I is rare indeed that
n newspaper man is called upon in
court to divulge the source of his in
formation I the information he may
get is of such a nature that he can
publish I then I is not of the class
that public policy deems i wise to
privilege What the husband and wife
tell each other what the client com
municates to his attorney the con
fidences between a doctor and his pa
tient the secrets of the confessional
these are deemed privileged communi
cations and in most states are so
treated by the law But those to whom
they are made tell them to others
and if they attempt I the courts step
in and forbid them to They are privi
leged that they may not be made known
to the world the state holding that its
welfare Is best served by protecting
them a secret and sacred No sum
necessity exists to protect a newspaper
man for his sole object In getting the
information I to make it public I is
because we believe it the duty of a
newspaper to uphold so far a in its
power lies the general good that we
oppose this bill and for no other
reason No public good is t be furth
ered no more legitimate news is to be
had through its enactment into law
Through such a law a paper might be
enabled to cause an upheaval in a
city that might in its turn result in
serious affrays or riots yet the courts
would be unable to investigate the
cause the source of information being
privileged We do not believe the legis
lature will enact i into law
THE CmnSTIAy CHARACTER
I The truth Is there are two oppo
site descriptions of character under
which mankind may generally be class
ed The one possesses vigor firmness
resolution is daring ° nd active quick
in its sensibilities jealous of its fame
eager in its attachments inflexible in
its purpose violent in its resentments
The other meek yielding complying
forgiving not prompt to act but will
ing t suffer silent and gentle under
rudeness and insult suing for
inult recon
ciliation where others would demand
satisfaction giving way to the pushes
of impudence conceding and indulgent
to the prejudices the wrong headed
ness the intractability of those with
whom it has to deal
The former of these characters is and
ever has been the favorite of the
world I is the character of great
men There is a dignity in it which
universally commands respect
The latter is poor spirited tame and
abject Yet so I hath happened that
with the founder of
Christianity this
latter is the subject of his commenda
tion his precepts his example and
that the former Is so in no part of its
composition Paley
We think Paley is mistaken in thus
entirely separating the qualities that I
enter into human character and then
representing the group of gentler qual
ities a being the one alone which the
Christ approved by the sanction of his
great example and the force of hIs
precepts We think this common error
as to the character of the great peas
ant God teacher of Nazareth has led
to very many false notions relative to
the duty of man and even the policy
of nations I must be remembered in
the first place that the accounts we
have of the Messiahs life and teach
ings are at best but meagre and frag
mentary but even in those fragments
may be seen in his example at least
enough to correct the broad statement
of Paley
While It is true that all the patience
long suffering meekness loneliness
gentleness willingness to forgive
wrong and even to submit to the
pushes of impudence attributed to
Jesus by Paley may be found both in
this example and his precepts yet it
is also true that enough evidence in
even our fragmentary histories of his
life exists to give us glimpses of the
great truth that the other qualities
grouped together by Paley and set on
one side a belonging peculiarly to men
of the world also went to the making
up of that marvelous character who
taught men the way of truth in Ju
I
den He could and did teach it isI
true as no one else ever has
taught the beauty of goodness the
force of gentleness the power of for
bearance the strength of forgiveness
the majesty of patient silence in the I
presence of insolent authoritYbutat i
other times he showed the vigor of I
forceful expression and even tried the i
virtue of i scourge of ropes on the backs i
of thieves and robbers a well a expletives I
pletives I is true that he at the first I
sent out his disciples to be as lambs I
among wolves to go without purse and I
without scrip but on another oc I
casion he told them to take I
their swords with them and if they
did not have one then to sell their II
cloak and buy the
clok one Now girding
I
on of a sword to say the very least of
it means defense defense means force I
and the employment of forca dont
1 1 1 ii i i
mean all the submissiveness Indicated
in that assemblage of qualities attrib
uted to Messiah and held up by Mr
Paley as the ideal Christian character
The fact 1 that in trying to fix the
character of Jesus Christ due allow
ance must be made for the fragment
ary character of the biographies of
him and then a like due allowance as
to what his biographers most admired
in him for be assured that i is what
they would most write about what in
their rhapsodies they would most dwell
upon and hence a they most admired
his forbearance the strength and beau
ty of his gentleness and mercy and
the moral force of forgiveness a he
taught i that they most represented in
the biographies they wrote of him and
hence to a very great extent we have
but a onesided view of his character
and on the supposed basis of his life
false ideals of the Christian character
Chlistan
have been founded
We believe the character of Jesus
Christ was perfect that there was a
beautiful blending in just proportion all
the qualities in both of Paleys groups
and that the follower of Jesus Christ
is justified in also seeking to wed to
gether in perfect harmony those noble
qualities in such proportion a shall
create a character which is not abject
ly mean in its humility but beautiful
in i ± one that is not arrogant in its
pride but justly and magnificently no
ble one that Is not rash and insolent
in his courage but who on the other
hand is not devoid of Itor who would
make his cowardice pass current for a
sort of patient endurance The Chris
tian character is a beautiful blending
of strength and gentleness mercy and
justice courage and generosity humil
ity and self respect all perfectly bal
anced
The man Hends who shOt the wo
man Egan was fined 100 and sen
tenced to sixty days imprisonment
Such a sentence for such a crime is
wholly inadequate I he were under
the influence of liquor it was no pal
liation of his crime either in morals or
law Such sentences for such crimes
tend to bring the law into disrepute
because the public recognizes that they
I are altogether disproportionate
LITERARY NOTES
The March number of Romance is
the most interesting of the series since
its change into an illustrated maga
zine I contains a pathetic little
story a charming poem by Eben Rex
ford and illustrated articles upon a
half dozen timely subjects
The London Saturday Review de
votes almost two pages in its issue
its critique of
dated February S to Is critque
Mr Hardys Jude the Obscure I is
more than an appreciation it is an ex
ceedingly able and as may be seen
from the following excerpts an
enthusiastic defence of the book in
question
The publishers of McClures Maga
zine have decided to spend 20000 for
short stories during the coming year
They announce that new writers will
be especially welcome Payment will
be made on a very liberal scale and it
is believed that this wall be more sat
isfactory than offering prizes Stories
should run from 2000 to 6000 words
The shorter the story the better
chance of success
Mrs Emily Crawford the well known
Paris correspondent contributes to the
March Century a biographical sketch
of Alexandre Dumas the elder The
article is a succession of anecdotes of
the old novelist and presents him in
a very picturesque light Mrs Craw
ford has an account of the Bohemians
and sponges who took advantage of
Dumas prodigality and of his archi
tectural folly the Chateau Monte
Crlsto with its strange menagerie
In all important matters the presi
dent is consulted by all the secre
taries writes exPresident Harrison
in March Ladies Home Journal in an
article upon The Presidents Duties
He I responsible for all executive ac
tion and everything that is out of the
routine receives his attention Every
Important foreign complication is
usually discussed with him and the
diplomatic note receives his approval
During his famous expedition to the
Arctic regions before death by starva
tion stared him and his followers in
the face General Greely devoted con
siderable time to the study of Arctic
animals their habits their endurance
and their remarkable courage In two
papers which he will contribute to
Harpers Round Table one of them
appearing in the issue of March 3 en
titled The Courage of Arctic Ani
mals he will give readers the benefit
of his studies describing in a most
interesting manner many things not
generally known of these far northern
species
Offers princely in their nature are
repeatedly being made to Mary Ander
son de Navarro to return to the stage
writes Edward W Bok in March
Ladies Home Journal but she turns
a deaf ear to them all Only the past
summer overtures came to her from an
American manager which insured a
big fortune if she would consent to re
turn to the stage for a brief period
There were six figures in the amount
stipulated and the first figure was
equal to the total number of numerals
in the whole amount But I had no
effect upon her She turned away from
it easily and without an effort
No she said I am through with
the stage And that was all
All ithe founders of McClures Maga
zine are recent graduates of Knox col

Mr McClure is a trustee of this col I

Douglas debate The oration will be

will undoubtedly be thousands

Aldens Living Topics Magazine and
Cyclopedia are really unique publica
tions which will be highly appreciated
by all intelligent readers who wish to
keep track Of the worlds progress in
all important lines of activity and
knowledge They deal with such items
as one would naturally look for in a
first class cyclopedia were it upto
date which no cyclopedia i or possi
bly can be because of Its magnitude
and cost The average reader probably
inquires more about things touching
the past three years than concerning
the preceding three centuries Topics
are treated in alphabetical order and
as often as the alphabet Is covered a
new series will begin and the same
course tya resumed Each bound

THE GOSPEL OP THE GROUND
Today I stretch me on the shadowed
grass
And hear my heart say yet again to me
How sweet i is to let the bad world
be
Float float i says with lightest things
that pass
Leap with the gauzewinged vaulterg
glass to glass
Drink with the bees mix to the revelry
Of those the mother loveth tenderly
Her has own to whom she giveth all she
Ay heart we will forswear the old vain
round
Forestall wise death betake us to the
ground

CLEVELAND AXD TIE WEST
Where the President Got His Ideas
From
Wo would not like to accuse Mr Cleve
land ot being addicted to yellowcolored i
literature but his knowledge of the west
seems to have been gleaned from such
sterling works a Rocky Mountain Pete
or the WildEyed Corpse Accumulator of
Grizzly Gulch Tombstone Gallegher or
the Deadly Avenger of the LopEared
Mule The Bandits of Whisky Straight
or Calamity Janes ta ta Bet on the High
Card and the like The president may
also have derived much of his exhaustive
and accurate knowledge of toe west Its
people customs and manners from care

THE UEA3I IX HIS EYE
The address delivered by President
Cleveland before the board of home mis
sions ot the Presbyterian church at New
York on Tuesday evening is curiously
illustrative of his mental attitude toward
the new states and growing communities
that constitute the great west He saw
hi the home missions of New York a
mes to convert not New York but the
new states ana territories ana to that
theme he devoted the greater portion of
his speech Cleveland of course
Is not the only offender of this kind
There Is a numerous class of people In
the east who are persuaded that they
lave all tho honesty intelligence and
righteousness of the country I is from
this class comes rite cry that the west is
opposed to honest money that it is
Ignorant of finance that it seeks to
defraud capital of its rights I is a
class which ignores the salient fact that
the west a been settled by the best
elements the east couid send forth from
north or south Those whom the New
York board of home missions intend to
send out to convert us wU find It so
however and after their arrival will
have to send tiack word that instead of
meeting heathens of the vicious element
they haVS been met everywhere in the
west by men who offer them a cordial co
operation In building up communities
that manifest every element of the best
civilization of America
