Mr. Blaine is certainly out of the
field now. This is his own decision,
and doubtless it was arrived at after
long, careful and calm consideration
of the field and the coming important
campaign in all its various bearings.
That it was wholly in the interest of
harmony in the republican party cannot
be doubted by anyone who has given
the slightest thought to the subject.
Mr. Blaine does not propose to sulk
either, for he has already announced
his intention of returning to this coun
try in time to take the stump for the
nominee of the Chicago convention, no
matter who he may be. Mr. Blaine's
nearest friends here, in talking of who
the nominee is to be, seem to be prac
tically unanimous in agreeing that the
choice should be left to the delegates
from the doubtful states, New York,
New Jersey, Connecticut and Indiana
that those states which are certain to go
republican should support the choice
of the doubtful states, particularlyjNew
York. This strikes me as good sensi
ble advice, which if followed out, will
surely result in a victory for the repub
lican party this year, and after all, that
is more to be desired than the eleva
tion of any one man. The success of
the republican party is necessary for
the welfare of the country. Four years
more of democratic misrule will ruin
the nation. Let everv republican bear
this fact in mind, and there is no doubt
of what the result will be.
Senator Hawley has accepted an in
vitation from the city of Philadelphia to
deliver an oration Independence
Square on July 4.
The House spent three days last week
in discussing the tarriff bill under the
five minute rule. It has now been laid
aside until next Monday, owing to the
St. Louis convention* When it is ta
ken up again, if the progress is not
greater than it was during the three
days devoted to it, a vote on it will ne
ver be reached at the present session.
Strange as it may sound, it is never
theless true, that there is absolutely no
interest expressed here in the St. Louis
convention, owing to the fact that
everything had been all fixed up before
hand. About one-fourth of the demo
crats in Congress are in attendance,
but they went more from force of habit
than because of anything they expected
to accomplish by goino
Legislation can sometimes be put
through Congress in a very short time,
as was proven by the bill reviving the
grade of General of the Army, for the
promotion of General Phil. Sheridan.
The bill was passed by the Senate Tues
day, was reported to the House Thurs
day, but went over on objection being
made. Friday the bill was called up at
12 45 o'clock, was passed and received
the approval of the President before 2,
and at 2.45, just two hours from the
time it was called up in the house, Gen
eral Sheridan had received his commis
sion as General of the Army. The
commission was taken to the residence
of General Sheridan by Senators Haw
ley and Manderson. As Mrs. Sheridan
met them, Senator Hawley handed her
the commission remarking "Madame,
I give You this with great pleasure.1'
Mrs. Sheridan was much moved, and
exclaimed: "I know now he will get
well." She thanked the gentlemen
with much earnestness, and retiring
said she would hand the commission to
the General at once. No one was in
the sick room when Mrs. Sheridan gave
her husband the new commission, ex
cept the doctor, the nurse even being
out of the room at the time. He was
much gratified and seemed to be happy.
He immediately dictated an acceptance
of the commission, which he signed with
a pencil in a large and legible hand.
The democratic Senators are already
heartily sick of the public debate on the
Fisheries treaty. Only one republican,
Senator Frye, has spoken on it yet, but
his speech was enough to show the
democratic Senators that they are en
tirely ignorant on this whole fisheries
question, while the New England Sena
tors have the whole thing at their fin
gers' ends. The treaty will not be
called up again until June 11, it having
been postponed to that date at the re
quest of the democratic Senators who
wanted to attend the Cleveland ratifica
tion meeting St. Louis this week.
A serious charge has been brought
against Mr. Fuller, the nominee for
Chief Justice, by Mr. Danlevy, of Chi
cago. It is charged that in 1881 Mr.
Fuller and the clerk of the court were
jury commissioners, and drew a jury to
try a case in which Mr. Fuller was
heavily interested. The jury so drawn
rendered a verdict which put many
thousands of dollars in Mr. Fuller's
pockets. The senate judiciary com
mittee are investigating the charge.

quest to the Mayor in regard to the in

of the City, entirely uncalled for under

The Governor of New York has
signed the bill substituting death by
electricity for hanging in capital cases.
Thi3 does not effect those under sen
tence of death now or who may be sen
tenced between now and January 1,
1889, or any who may be sentenced af
ter that time for crimes committed
prior to that date. It is a warning to
criminals that death will follow by
lightning stroke thoseu who commit
murder after this year. fe/Whether the
change from hanging to death by elec
tricityiwill have an increased deterrent
effect upon that class of criminals who
commit capital crimes is not at all cer
tain. There may be those who will re
gard death with the suddenness of the
lightning's flash with additional hor
ror, but they are quite likely to be off
set by an equal or greater number
who will regard the change as one
that will rob death of a part of its ter
rors. It is probable that whatever de
terrent effect death penalty does have
upon the criminal class is chiefly due to
the fear of what may happen after
death, rathe than to the prospect of
pain or suffering in the execution of the
death penalty itself.
Assuming, therefore, that the change
will work no diminution in the number
of capital crimes, there will still be a
great gain to the cause of public dero
rum. The revolting scenes incident to
the bungling performance of the hang
man's duty, which have so often
shocked the public, will be at an end at
last. It will be necessary to call in the
services of skilled eletrician in the exe
cution of the new law and in his hands
the work cannot be bungled. The
New York law provides also that all
future executions shall be in private,
thus doing away with the old practice
of making hanging a species of horrible
public amusement. It is probable that
after a fair test of the working of the
New York system it will come into gen.
eral use in all tha States. There has
been for a long time a feeling that some
method of execution less shocking to
the public sense than hanging ought to
be devised, and as New York has led
the way its example is pretty certain to
be widely followed.—WINONA REP.

that the case is close.—Pioneer-Press.
