ONNELL S PINE LAND PL A NK.
Only a few years have passed since
Ignatius Donnelly was a hot candidate
fox that official plum—J&£ bonanza^pat
ronage r»rize of the pine-land and lum
bering corporations-the position of£ur
veyor-generai. WfalflMr. Donnelly, a
strictly literary and social reform gen
tleman, wished to do with this lumber
man's fat office has always remajjietl a
mystery.. Indeed, it has always
been a matter TjT^cotijecture what
qualifications Mr. Donnelly had for the
position, or what attractions the office
could have for him.
Mr. Donnelly ambition for t^-office
of surveyor-general forcibly recurs to
mind in connection with the reeent up
roar in the Farmers' Alliance ranks over
the forestry plank iu the lat^^D^M^rly^
Fish platform. Heretofore the Alliance
in its platforms and otherwise, has stood
gtaunchlv \pfttte cause ot forestry and
forest protection. Many of the princi
pal officers and agitators in the State
Forosty Association are members of the
Alliance or in sympathy with tbarflfody.
Secretary J. 0. Barrett, the gentleman
who fathered the proposed forest reserve,
is himself an Alliance sympathizer. The
Farm, -Stoek and Home, the Progressive
Age, and other papers which sympath
ize with the Alliance cause, as well as
all agricultural journals, were strong
champions of the Northern Minnesota
forest reserve project. The members
of the Alliance in the late state legisla
ture were, likewise minded and voted
for the memorial to congress and the
president. The forest*"reserve was h$ljg
up as peculiarly an agricultural meas
ure, and opposed to the machinations
of the "pine land barons." How seized
with consternation, therefore, were the
farmer leaders to see Messrs. Donnelly
& Fish present the following peculiar
and mysterious resolution-
Resolved, That we, disapprove of the
scheme to set aside a large portion of
the northeastern part of our state for a
national park as a scheme of the pine-s
land and railroad rings to secure the
lend for future corporation benefits and
that we btlieve it is a plan of English
syndicates to cut us off from the Lake
Superior route to the ocean.
This exceedingly Donnellian produc
tion, with its Bacon-cipher logic, has
stirred up among the Alliance yeoman
ry a Northwest olizzard of hostile de
monstration. The Farm, Stock and
Home discourses on the Donnelly-F.sh
plank after this poinded fashion:
To say that pine land and railroad
rings want to preserve-foresis is to rea
son curiously, and* to assume that Eng
lish syndicates want to get hold of tim
ber and mineral lands for any purpose
other than speedy and complete devas
tation and despoliation is passing
strange. Farmers protesting: against
the preservation of forests that railroad
rings, lumber lords and English syndi
cates would preserve is an anamoly
rarely encountered. Strangely enough
the opponents of the reservation are
farmers, lings, corporations and syndi
cates here they all meet on common
grounds, while skilled, intelligent, ex
perienced, unselfish, philanthropic men
and women are favoring it, solely in
the interest of agriculture.
The Progressive Age boils Mr. Don
nellv's pine-land delivery as follows:
It seems the very acme of indescrib
able nonsense for the Farmers Alliance
to declare against the National Park Re
serve for Minnesota, thus joining the
lumber monopolies, the plutocratic
press and the railwav corporations in
their fight against the scheme. What
colossal impudence to assert that the
Park project was a scheme of English
syndicates to prevent an outlet to Eur
ope by way of the lakes?
But it remains for Secretary Barrett,
of the State Forestry Association, to
"give away" Mr. Donnelly bodily, an
act which the doughty secretary suc
cessfully prosecuted in Monday even
ing's Tribune, Mr. Barrett talks state
secrets, as follows:
Impressed with the conviction that an
effort would be made by the"land ring"
of Minnesota to lqad its scheme upon
the shoulders of the Alliance conven
tion, I wrote Mr.Donnelly, biiefly stat
ing the facts in the case, believing at
the time that he would not betray my
confidence, but would add to the luster
of his former defense of forestry, and
warned him against the cunning scheme
of the combine and plead with him
not to commit the conyention either
way, because the reserve is not a polit
ical consideration. Note the result!
His official influence was thrown in
favor of the "timber land sharks!" The
convention yielded to the pressure
of the monopoly bearing upon those un
wary farmers, under the leadership of
the president and state lecturer, and the
secretary was ordered to report the ac
tion of the convention to our congress
men at Washington virtually to the ef
fect that they are opposed to reserving
a great wind break to protect them
against the polar winds, opposed to the
restoration of our water flow, opposed
to the growing of wood on those other
wise useless lands, opposed to the agri
cultural blessings accruing from "the
preservation and developement of a for
est floor and roof to husband the rains
and snows wherewith to feed their food
plants! Was ever a delegation of farm-

The influence of Grover Cleveland,
Frances and Miss Ruth is evidently on
the decline. David B. Hill, single
handed and alone is the ex-president's
unlucky star, whom not even twins, it
seems, could overcome.
The St. Peter Herald strikes it about
right when it says that Blaine's ill health
will not kill him for several years, but
that if it doesn't let up it may prove fa
tal to Harrison's. The majority of Re
publicans have nothing t' say against
the trustworthiness and prudence of Mr.
Harrison's administration but they do
dislike these constant utterances by his
friends regarding Blaine's health.
All of a sudden there has"grown up a
desire all over the country that senators
should be elected by popular vote. This
is not exactly a bad ism, but one thing
should be remembered before making
a change, and that is that the power to
elect good men is with the people now
in all probability to as great an extent
as if the election was direct. Under the
present method the only trouble is with
the people themselves, who fail to send
honest men to thejlegislatures.
When the historian comes to write up
the list of schemers of this great nation
of afers,j he will not forget to men
tion as that of one of the finest, shrewdest
and boldest,the name of David B, Hill.

Considerable misunderstanding exists
concerning the rules governing village
elections in Minnesota. In some places
they are conducted under the Austra
lian passed by the last legislature,
although there were a number of offi
cers who were" elected under the law.
Attorney General Clapp was asked re
lative to this matter and made the fol
lowing statement which may be taken
as final: "An impression seems to pre
vail that that the so-called Asutralian
election law, passed at the last session
of the legislature, applies to thethat
election of village township and school
district officers. This is a false impres
sion as the law does not apply to the
election of any of said officers."
Representative Lind has introduced
his bill of the late session to repeal the
act making the. grant ofj lands to the
State of Minnesota to aid in the im
provement of the navigation of the Miss
issippi riyer. This grant was made in
1868 and consisted of 10*0,000 acres of
land, which was to be used to improye
the river between St Paul and Minne
apolis. It was intended for the con
struction of locks and dams midway
between the cities, which the general
government engineers have said is thethis
only practicable way of making the
improvement of the river between those
cities. There lias been some question
as to whether the grant has not lapsed
because nothing has ever been done in
regard to it, and the lands for the pur
pose have never been selected, and no
company, organized to actively engage
in the operation of improrement, has
applied for the laDds, This bill failed
in the last congress but Mr. Lind
hopes to put it through at this session.
He has had it referred to the committee
on interstate and foreign commerce, be
cause he is a member of that committee
and expects to have it reported back at
an early date. The reference is clearly
illegal, as it should go to the commit
tee on public lands, and if not to pub
lic lands, to the committee on rivers
and harbors, as it is a matter whollv
outside of the jurisdiction of the com
mittee on interstate and foreign com
merce, Last year it was before the
committee on public lands, and re
mained in that committee because it
was not apparent that there was any
necessity for the repeal. *$&
ENGLAND'S ASIA TIG EMPIBE.
For example, I have read during tne
recent talk about India in connection
with the temporary trouble in the Pa
mir, articles in American papers,lightiy
and carelessly—but, of course, clever
ly—penned, as if it were an indifferent
matter to civilization generally, and to
Americans in particular, whether Rus
sia should ever seriously challenge the
British possession of India and perhaps
even some day succeed in ousting us
from the peninsula. In reality, such an
event, could it befall, would prove the
direst occurrence for5 hum an progross—
and indirectly for the United States
themselves— since the overthrow of the
Roman Empire by the barbarians, it
would be the triumph of the Slav over
the Saxon, and would set back the de
velopement of Asia, and the advance
ment of the human race generally, at
least a thousand years. I can imagine
some of the clever young newspaper
men, whom I have been everywhere
glad to meet, responding in familiar
local phrase to this: "Well, but itthe
would not be our funeral!" In this re
specfethey would find out their mistake
if they should live long enough.
The loss of India to England would
mean the breaking up and decay of our
ancient empire the eventual spread of
Slavonic and Mongolian hordes all over
the vacant places and open markets of
tho, world the world's peace gone
again, as in days of Belisarius, the
march of sciences, arts, religions, arres
ted as when Omar burned the Alexan
drian Library and history once more
put back to the beginning of anew ef
fort, under novel and gloomy auspices,
to effect that which is the perpetual ob
ject of its course and its combinations
—the final amalgamation of all the peo
ples of the globe under one law and one
common faith and culture*
The clear^duty of England, therefore,
towards India is to legislate and admin
ister for her good, regardless of selfish
considerations, and only careful not to
lose step with the slow progress of the
Asiatic mind by adopting the restless
paces of Western reform. From the
beginning until to-day that duty has
neyer been put oat of mind. Seventy
years ago, when somebody found
Mountstewart Elphinstone sitting in
his tent at night and surrounded with
piles of school-books, and asked the
Governor of Bombay what he was do
ing, he—one of the most devoted of
administrators—replied: "I am paving
our way out of India.
I do not believe the English Govern
ment would hesitate at any measure,
even if it involved the eventual loss of
India, could it be made clear to them
that that measure was for the sure and
lasting benefit of the millions commit
ted to our charge in those wide regions.
But it is their opinion, and it is honest
ly mine, who love India aj I love Eng
land, that the connection between the
two peoples is one ordained by Divine
Providence itself, and that tne issues of
long strife that g,ave the great
country to us, out of the hands and
above the heads of so many fierce clai
mants, was a happy result for India,
first, and after that for England but
chiefly for her in the noble duties and in
majesty of the mighty and onerous
charge laid upon her.—From "The
Duty of England in India," by Sir Ed
win Arnold, in North American Re
view for Februaav.
It would seem as if every spark of
manhood had been quenched, as if those
working for the perpetuation of this ne
Jtarious business (the lottery) had sunk
all self-respect, all regard for'-decency
and morality, in their zeal to re-engraft
cursed thing into the body politic
of the state. This nation owes it to
itself to wipe out this disgrace and end
this infamy. Such tactics are but a bid
for revolution and linch law. They are
too exasperating to be tolerated by'de
cent men. The manhood of Louisiana
is not only dragged in the mud, but is
stamped upon by such outrages. The
administration of justice in the city of
Njew Orleans.so far as the lottery inter
ests are concerned, is a mockery and by.
word. Public servants bend their necks
to do the bidding of this lottery compa
ny. The managers boast that they
haye six millions of dollars in the banks
of the city of New Orleans to be spent
to carry through their amendments at
the coming April election. Anti-lot
tery societies have been organized, and
prominent men are to-day.in the city of
New ork, endeavoring to secure help
and sympathy for those in the state of
Louisiana who have determined that
this disgraceful sale of the state of
Louisiana to an organized band of pub
lic plunderers shall not be consummat
ed. This nation is humiliated by the
spectacle. There is need to be alarmed,
for if this organization can col
lect together millions of money each
year without returning any just or fair
equivalent therefor, and can spend six
millions to corrupt a single state elec
tion, what may it not do in the matter
of corrupting and controlling national
elections, where it requires less fthan
three millions of dollars to meet the
legitimate expenses of all parties to a
presidential election?* Is it not time
for something to be done to stay jthe
wholesale bribery of officials and the
corruption of the elective franchise? Is
it not time for the moral people of com
munity to awaken from their lethargy
and take some decided steps to crush
out this crime -breeder that has been
for nearly a quarter of a century fatten
ing upon the credulity of the people?—

Anthony Comstock, in North American
Review for February.
The situation with reference to Dr.
Bartlett's resignation or removal from
position of superintendent of the St.
Peter asylum haschanged slightly. When
it was announced a week ago in the
Tribuno-that Gov. Merriam had taken
certain steps to secure Dr. Bartlett's re
signation, as morning paper made an in
dustrious effort to have Gov. Merriam
deny the story,but all the governor could
be induced to say was that he had not
recieveu Dr. Bartlett's resignation.
Those in the confidence of the governor
say that he has been dissatisfied with
Dr. Bartlett's administration and has
for some time contemplated his removal.
This was a little difficult of accomplish
ment without stirring up strife. Yester
dayjthe reappointment of John Peterson
of St. Peterson the board of directors
was announced,which fills the board with
the exception of th« place occupied by
Major A. L. Sackett, and as it is known
that Mr. Peterson is willing to stand
by the governor in his opposition to Dr.
Bartlett, while Maj. Sackett is not, it is
given out by the adherents of the govern
nor that Maj.Sackett*3 appointment will
be withheld until satisfactory assurance
is given that Dr. Bartlett will go without
the persuasion of the governor's formal
dismissal. The attaches of the gover
nor's office are reticent, and the gover
nor himself declines to be interviewed,
but it is believed that Dr. Bartlett has
been virtually asked to resign. —Minn

SCIENCE IN BBEAD MAKING.
At a recent annual meeting of the
American Chemical Society, held in
Washington, D. C,, the question of the
value of carbonate of ammonia as a
leavening agent in bread, or as used in
baking powders came up for discussion,
in which Prof. Barker, of the University
of Pennsylvania, and Piesident of the
Society Dr. Richard son, late of the
United States Department of Agricul
ture in Washington Dr. Win. McMur
rie, late Prof, of Chemistry in the Uni
versity of Illinois Dr. E. H. Bartley,
late Chemist of Brooklyn, N. Y.,Board
of Health, and Prof.ofChemistry of the
Long Island College, and others took
The consensus of opinion was over
whelming in favor of the employment
of ammonia. It was stated as a fact
that ammonia rendered the gluten of
the flour more soluble than the original
gluten, and that the bread in which this
action was produced by carbonate of
ammonia must be more digestible and
hence more healthful, and because of
*he extreme volatility of carbonate of
ammonia, and its complete expulsion
from the bread in the process of baking
it is one of the most useful, most health
ful and most valuable leavening agents
These conclusions are borne out by
the very elaborate and exhaustive ex
periments made by Prof. J. O. Mallet,
of the University of Virginia which
show conclusively that bread made with
a baking powder in which one per cent
of carbonate of ammonia is used, in con
nection with cream of tartar and soda,
is not only of uniformly better color
and texture, but a product more whole
some because the ammonia serves to
neutralize any organic or latic acids
present in the flour.
