NOT A P4STISAN ISSUE.
Th* evidSßt effort of selfish politicians
to make tb* ailvsr question a partisan
l**tt* at deptorsM* In tha extreme. No
loyal American citizen will long be de
ceived by *weh a cry. Tb* very positive
(HffMeucsa in the great parties over the
adjustment of Irregularities and uncer
tantles In oar present financial system
clearly show tost tbe question is political;
it could not be other than so, touching as
it does Uie very foundation of tbe great
institution of our government; but these
salf-ssm* differences In party councils
•how quit* as clearly that the Issue pos
sesses not ceo partisan element-
It is, therefore, extremest folly to
charge western Democrats who refuse to
endorse tb* gbldite theory of tbe east
with being savagely at variance with tbe
leadership of their party, at war witb
President Cleveland on party manage
ment or with forcing a sectional contro
versy with a view of creating a serious and
hurtful nictation in tbe party. It would
be arrast madness to concede that politi
cal leaders are infallible, or shut the
statesman who safely led his party to
victory ia one emergency could repeat his
success In an emergency of a widely
different nature. Should the masses of
tbe country j ield without question to the
leadership of one man or one set of men
at all tHneSisuch un-American, un-Dem
ocratic, un-Republican concession would
qniekly destroy the glory of our renown
as a successful republic. Indeed, we must
regard tn« contempt in which individual
dictatorslip ia held In this country as one
oi tbe u»*st reassuring evidences of the
adepeadtmce of tbe American sovereign.
"****IJII silver doctrine endorsed by the
t majority of the Democrats of this
» cannot be reconciled witb tbe theory
anced by tbe administration ; but this
agreement with executive leadership
-u»kes them cone the less Democrats,
aor does ft affect tbe Democracy of Presi
-1 dent Cleveland and hia cabinet. There
is, in fact, no disagreement as to the re
sults desirfcd, in the main, for improve
ment of our faulty financial policy, loft
os as a legacy of the corrupt reign of the
Republican party, ia, we believe, the
earnest aim of the presept consideration
of financial policies, doctrines and'
Graver Cleveland's theory may be the
correct one, but the country, irrespective
ot party, has not yet been convinced thnt
it is. The ailverites may be more nearly
right, imperfect aa their doctrine is paid
to be, but iber are opposed by a powerful
array of able disputants.
There is ani pie ground for the suspicion
that tbe goldite theory is promulgated
chiefly in the interests of Wall street
whose gambling plutocrats are goaded to
desperation in the fight by the threat oi
withdraw! of favor by the soulless man
agers of the Lombard street infamy. Tbe
character of tbe .forces in this struggle
haa, therefore, gone far toward indicating
to the patriotic American, independent of
. party affiliations, what his duty ia In the
premise. And if he be found in uncon
cealed inharmony oo this question with
the administration he helped to elect, he
*ill also be found a loyal patriot laboring
/ for the promotion of common interests of
tbe masses of this country and uncom
promisingly opposed to Wall street and
its London confrere. .
" FIBBT PROVE YOUR CASE.
Van Alen baa been couflrmwl Now. it he has
any Sana* of dscercr. he will reatgu.—Tacuma
' WhyT Is it a crime to contribute
money lor legitimate campaign purposes?
Ia he charged with encouraging election
frauds in helping to psy the expense
necessary in disseminating the reli
gion of Democracy? Boppose he did
have ambition for office, is it a
crime to make his aapiration pub
lic? Have we any proof tbat he lacks
qualification for the office to which he
ha» been appointed ? If not, then wby
should he resign ? Van Alen has plenty
of money and he used it generously to
hire orators and print literature on behalf
of his party. Tax Hkraijd bates tbe
doctrine that a man is qualified for public
office only in proportion to bia wealth, but
on til Van Alen is convicted of ignorance,
personal onfitness for office or the use of
his riches to obtain fraudulent possession
Of a public trust, we are unable to see
■why Be should resign. The outcry against
him is Republican buncombe anyway
and no good Democratic newspaper whose
editor understands the case will help to
agitate th* political atmosphere with such
clatter. If tb* man who contributes to
honest campaign funds thereby disquali
fies hhjsaelf for public honor, there are
***y tit* men of consequence in this great
conntre who are eligible to office. First
prova/yoor ease against the man and
th*W if guilty, compel him to withdraw.
Secretary Whitney is excellent author
i. in the Van Alen case and his denial
■>i tbe charge that tbe latter bought hi*
office is worthy of belief.

Tbe Citizens' League recently organized
in Spokane is doing excellent in weaving
a woof about the heads of tbe
boodlersof that city. Its members are
firm and determined: They propose to
obtain and present proof that political
rings are today the most serious menace
to public prosperity, as exemplified in
that community, and then proceed to
punish the gJuilty claquers. Tbe public is

In «Hoh tWIM work Is needed.
Tbe country-la pestered with an nn
usaai nntsber of Innatica. The telegraphic
reports tell m thai a great many of thavn
want to assassinate the president. No
other president haa ever been so closely
guarded from dangerous crank* aa is Mr.
Cleveland now. The precautions taken
for his protection are unprecedented.
There seems to be an epidemic of lunacy
at present, and demented persona gener
ally make the White house their mecca.
An average of two of them each day have
called to sea the chief magiatraU daring
the last month. Most of them are harm
leas, but a few are disposed to be violent.
Ordinarily It ia very difficult for a crunk
to approach the president. Juat now it
ia practically impossible. Each visitor at
the White house moat undergo a rigid
scrutiny before being admitted. Then
there stands at the preaident'a chair a
Cerberus in the person of a trusted em
ploye named Loeffler, hia orders being
tbat only members of tha cabinet shall
be admitted, there ia no cbance to get by
him. But the portaj ia further protected

last few days for the express purpose of

house the inaeiltr in modo is preferred to
the fwtiler in re, and Mr. Thurber smooths
their ruffled feelings and gets rid of them
in nearly every instance without the
Tbe Denver News publisbea a sensa
tional story to the effect that Dr. T.
Thatcher Graven, tbe famoua poisoner,
who was supposed to have committed
suicide in jail, ia not dead. It is main
tained a pine log accupied the coffin in
stead of his body. The story is given on
tbe Authority of Charles N. Chandler, a
wealthy citizen of Thomas Centre. Conn.,
Graves' old home, where he is supposed
to be buried. Chandler and a fellow
townsman, Stephen Morse, are now in
Denver. They declare 1 h-t the coffin was
opened at the grave against the protests
of tbe widow and found to contain a pine
log, and tbat the supposed dead doctor is
now enjoying freedom in a foreign coun
try. A rumor has been current some
time that the body curried fr>m the
eonntv jail was really wax, and tbat tbt
parties to tba deception were some high
officials and a secret organisation. Thia
rumor la strengthened by the refusal to
allow the remains to bo viewed except by
the moat iutiniate friends, and by the
further fact that the widow refused to
allow the remains to be enbslmed.

A brief description of the terrible seen*
at the Battle Creek railroad wreck on the
30th mat , in which twenty six persona
were instantly killed and twenty-seven
more so horribly burned and mangled
that de ih may ensue, in given in the fol
lowing piratfrnph : "Were you to build*
a raging fire, and above it a erid iron, and
on that place fifty human beings you
could get some idea of the scenes which
were enacted, oh, it was frightful and
tbe memory of it can never be erased
from my mind. One pdbr woman was
pinioned in the wreck to her waist. In a
frantic endeavor to extricate her a man
palled off one of her hands. It was the
most terrible sight I ever saw. All about
us were men, women and children held
fast in burning embers, slowly rossting
before the eyes of would-be saviors. I aaw
one poor child with a rod pierced clear
through hia body. He screamed in his
torture. He was dragged from the w reck.
Other sights equally painful were to be
seen in every direction. Tbe horror of it
all was beyond description. No mere
worda con do it justice."

Secretary Carlisle, in reply to Senator
Stewart'* resolution asking for informa
tion on the state of the treasury, says:
"The actual expenditures for the first
quarter of the present fiscal year amount
to $98,458,127, and if continued at the
same ratio for tiie balance of the year
would be about $'.'0,830,508 in excess of
tbe estimates for the year, and would also
show an excess of expenditures over the
supposed actual receipts for the year esti
mated, of $76,318,833. • • • A simple
calculation will ahow that with tba email
working balance in tbe treasury, and
which has been decreasing in varied
ratioafor several years, if there be no im
portant internal receipt of revenuea for
the remaining three-fourths of tbe present
fiscal year and no legislative reduction of
the expenditures, there may be contem
plated a deficit at the and of the year of
$50,000,000 in the revenues and $80,000,
--000 w»h reference to the estimates."

The people of the great breadth of
country directly interested in the success
of tbe Northern Pacific Railroad com
pany will rejoice at tbe news tbat Villard
has been incontinently kicked out of the
controlling councils of that corporation.
Tbe chief interests of tbe road have been
subordinated to the Villard spirit of plun
der so long and so continuously tbat the
chief purpose* for which the company waa
organized have been only scantily realized,
while the millions made by the operation
of the line and the use of its grant have
gone down deep iuto the private coffers of
Villard and bia henchmen who were
never actuated by a generous impulse in
the work of their management. Tba
Ives spirit will now predominate and the
company will certainly be reorganized
purely on • boainesa foundation. Tha
result Will be greatly advantageous to tbe

If P. B. Johnson is guilty of tba offense
with which he it) charged by the governor
and for which he waa removed, tbe fact
that the other commissionera are alao
guilty does not lessen Mr. Johnsons

. Attorney General Jones says that Gov
ernor McGraw has given ample assurance
that he will convene the legislature In
extraordinary seasion this year—which
means sometime during the next two
months. We don't believe it. The re
port that tba farmers cast of tbe moun
tains want it ia nut true. The Spokane
Review misrepresents the general senti
ment on this aide of the range when it
says so. And we believe it knowa it.
Knowing it, it is, therefor*, false to the
common interests of its clientelage. There
is no excuse for it at this time, bat there
is good reason wby it should not be*
called. It ia purely a partisan movement,
tbe expense ot which will have to be paid
by an already unnecessarily burdened
class of taxpayers. Who wants it, any
way, and what ia it wanted for?
r-ome ou« who has already perfected his
pluns to get rich out of the mid-winter
fair at San Francisco has sent us printed
pictures of scenes which will probably be
arranged for tbe delectation of visitors;
and he offers to sell them to us at a*
much a cut, so we can use them by way
of advertising his business. The chief
element in this fellow's proposition ia hla
gall; but, to convince him that we're all
right, we hereby agree to run his cuts for
60 cents an ■ insertion per single-column
inch, he to furnish the cuts free to us. If
this is not acceptable, then he and we
can't do business. We are perfectly
willing to advertise California's grand re
sources in a reasonably legitimate way,
and invite a comparison with those of
tb a magnificent state, but wo respectfully
decline to join the fakirs in their unholy
quest for wealth.

many years doctors pronounced it a local

and by constantly failing to cure with lo
