A Sexate junketing committee with the
sanctimonious Hoar at the head, left Wash

How much more this expedition will cost
than the average congressional funeral re
mains a matter for future report.
The Denver Tribune, for a Republican
partisan organ, is a fresh one. Here is its
statement regarding the colored vote of
these United States: "The general experi
ence has been that the colored vote will gen
erally go where it can get the most money.
It is purely a v matter of money. The colored
vote in the country at large is unreliable and
purchasable." The colored people can see
in what esteem the Republicans hold them.
If this statement is true, the Danville out
rage job is a case where the colored men
were hired to get up a row. That is the way
the Republicans handle them.
"Bismarck was drunk," is the explana
tion which is now offered of his offensive re
turn of the Lasker resolutions of condolence.
Perhaps he was, but that does not alter the
fact that there was not the smallest reason
why this country should have formulated
such resolutions, or having formulated them
should thrust them upon the German chan
cellor. It is known by intelligent people
that Bismarck found in Lasker a bitter
♦pponent; good taste should have sug
gested that a resolution of condolence sent to
Lasker's avowed enemy was a thing that
might better than not be avoided. As a
matter of fact, the men drew up and con
ceived the resolutions, probably knew noth
ing of the feeling between Bismarck and
Lasker. They saw only that Lasker was
greatly admired by many Germans in this
country, and thereupon they drafted the reso
lutions to placate the German citizen. They
aeveronce looked across the ocean; they
saw only the German voter and to him the
resolution was addressed. The same class
of men, had they thought of it, would very
likely have drawn a series of resolutions
over the untimely death of O'Donnell the
slayer of Carey, and would have asked that
they be forwarded to Gladstone to be read
before the British parliament.
The foreign mails bring the detailed results
of the action of the intercolonial convention,
held at Sydney, Australia, on the Sth of last
December. The purpose of the convention
was to secure an understanding and co-oper
ation among the provinces of Australasia,
which includes a vast empire all byit'elf, and
which, in time, will be sure to make itself
sensibly felt throughout the world.
Australasia comprises not only Australia
proper, but a large portion of the southwest-.
ern portion of that enormous region known
formerly as Oceanica. In width from east to
west, the Australasia which has just entered
on a species of federation, is some 10.000
mile6, and from north to s v g U tb nearly
4,000 miles, au area -much greater than
that of the United States. It is time that
w.thir. this vast area there is m-jch water, so
that ic fact the land which can be settled
falls far short of that within this country
From fifty to seventy millions ts the popula
tion, which, it is calculated, this Australian
continent will support. At the intercolonial
gathering there were representatives from the
various portions of Australia, with the result
that a federation was formed which covers
considerable ground. It provides that war
rants issued in one colony shall be good in
any other: that measures may be
provided Gfor tbe common defence:
that sanitary regulations patents mail
facilities, and the like shall be extended so
as to meet the demand of all the colonies in
stead of being of heretofure, cared for by
each colonies without reference to the neces
sities or the convenience of the others. This
union has been adopted but in all particulars
with a special reservation that her majesty's
prerogatives shall in no case be interfered
The colonies are loyal, although they have
a desire to attempt a little on their own ac
count. In this particular there is somewhat
an imitation of the Canadas; the
Australians still will wear the
queen's collar of servitude, but other
wise claim to be free and independent. It is
a great pity that in taking this step the colo
nies had not at once boldly announced that
their ultimate intention is to form an empire
in the Pacific which should owe allegiance to
no one. The results of colonial enterprise
is seen in the case of our Canadian neigh
bors. They have an enormous territory, they
are as old as any part of the United States,
with the result that to-day they have less
than a twelfth of our popnlation of this
country, and cut no figure in the
world's affairs. The average geo
graphers of the \ world would scarcely
be able on demand to locate Canada on the
map, and later history will be consulted in
vain to find any part she has taken in shap
ing the outlines of the world. This position
is so obviously the result of dependence that
it is somewhat marvellous that the Austrail
ians should not have taken the alarm at the
result as_ shown in Canada, and have provid
ed for itself a different future. However,
the step taken towards securing a union is a
notable event. It creates what is the sem
blance of a nation over an area which is
continental in its extent. It will
afford development throughout hundreds of
islands which have been given up to pure
savagery since tbe beginning of the human
race. It will demand the reconstruction of
modern map3 whereby the place of athousand
unknown islands in an unknown sea will
assume shape as fractions of a grand whole.
The vast Pacific ocean wiil lose its character
as an unbroken sea and a continent will
spring up In its midst like a grand oasis in
the midst of the desert.
TWO MORE PRESIDENTS IN IT.
Now and then, an audacious Republican,
big with the party secrets, gets a good oppor
tunity to give the game dead away, and does
it, as Gov. Foster did in his famous talk
about Arthur. Now comes J. B. McCullagh,
editor of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, and
strikes a blow below the belt. He talked as
"So you think the contest narrows down
virtually to Arthur and Edmunds?"
"Yes. Edmunds is not, so far as I know,
a confessed candidate, but his friends are
urging his claims, and it amounts to the
same thing. There is one thing which is,
but should not be, against him, and that is
the silly prejudice which exists in the west
against an eastern man, or 'Yankee.' It is
a senseless objection, andit is difficult to un
derstand why it exists?"
"Isn't it because 'eastern' men are sus
pected generally of being the representatives
"No, I think there's nothing in that. In
fact, I don't believe that this prejudice
amounts to much with the mass of the peo
ple, but the politicians here in the west harp
upon it, and use it as a weapon with which
to attack men who come from east of a cer
tain line. I have very little patience with
such talk, and rather than see a good man
sacrificed for such a silly and unreasonable
consideration I would be willing to see a
"What will be the issue in the coming
campaign? Will the tariff question figure
"Not at all. It will hardly form a feature
of the campaign. There is not enough dif
ference between the official utterances of the
two parties on that question to admit of a
"What will be the issue then? Will the
old ones be made to do duty once more?"
"Yes; the bloody shirt and that sort of
"Don't you think that's about worn out?"
"Not by any means. ** There are at least
two more Presidents in the bloody shirt."
There is a first-class pointer. Everything
is to be kept out of sight but the bloody shirt.
The senate and Arthur are to crush tariff legis
lation, another crew have set the "outrage"
mill at work, and the leading Republtcan
paper of the Bouth-west discloses that there
are two more Presidents in the bloody shirt.
There is the whole matter in a nut-shell. Its
bloody-shirt or no issue, and that means a
Republican campaign of malice, lies and
corruption without a paralell. There will be
hot work, but the conspiracy will fail, the
Globe-Democrat the contrary, notwithstand
ing. The Republican party will never elect
another President. Its bloody shirt is its
THE ADMINISTRATION STRENGTH.
The output of the official notice that Arthur
is a candidate for the Republican nomination
is showing results. A Washington special to
an eastern Republican administration paper
reports the first returns:
The administration is no longer commanding a
majority in the senate whenever Senators Sherman
and Logan object, which they are doing very
freely, especially concerning southern appoint
ments coming up for confirmation. It has never
been so before. Each of these senators has a
distinct motive in defeating Arthur's use of
power, all three being equally interested in the
question of delegates involved therein. This is
the explanation of the recent rejections. Others
will follow. Persons familiar with
the inside history of the failing
appointments know how hard Arthur has been
struck. In this Hoar joins with spirit. The ad
ministration strength in the senate does not ex

The German emigrants who came to this conn
try last year was 166,199, while the number for
1882 was 193,687, and for 1881, 210,544. These
figures show a steady decrease of German emi

expectation or knowledge of.
Prince Bismarck was not drunk, nor angry,
nor contemptuous when he caused the return of
the Lasker tribute. He was simply incredulous.
When he learned that the resolution was offered
in the house by Tom Ochiltree, of Texas, he re
jected the whole business as a Munchausen-ism
too thin, or dubious for the serious acceptance
of a "man of iron" whose country is always ob
tuse in apprehension of American humor and
perversely stupid as to the merits of our present
"statesmanship." Besides the chancellor heard
that the Hon. Thomas Porterhouse Ochiltree had
been denied admission to the Metropolitan
club at Washington, after having been "proposed
by one of his friends, and serenaded by another."
He treated the Ochiltree-Lasker resolution ac

A Useful Publication.
Mr. P. B. Groat, general emigration agent
of the Northern Pacific road, has just issued
a publication in the form of a newspaper,
which he entitles "Newspaper Notes on the
Northern Pacific road." The contents of
this paper consists of facts gathered from re
liable sources, in regard to the productions
of the counties through which the road runs,
the population, mineral wealth,
&c, and of statistics calculated to
give the reader a full, com
plete and fair idea of the vast region along
the line of this great highway across the con
tinent. Copious extracts are made from the
correspondence of Gen. H. V. Boynton's let
ters to the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette,
giving a summary of his trip over the road,
also from the remarks of the Rev. Henry-
Ward Beecher, giving his ideas of what he
saw on his trip across the continent by way
of the Northern Pacific road.
Of course, much of the
publication is made up of facts and figures
calculated to present to the public an ade
quate idea of the capacity of a considerable
portion or the 6oil along the line to produce
wheat. In regard to the snow fall and the
delay of trains the following statement is
made, which will surprise many:
There is much less snow fall in North Da
kota than in the southern portion of the ter
ritory and in the same latitude farther east.
While there were frequent and protracted in
terruption to travel on the railroad lines in
southern Dakota, southern Minnesota, Iowa,
Illinois, and Wisconsin, it is a fact worthy of
mention that the trains of the Northern Pacific
railroad made regular trips over the entire
line every day throughout the three past wint
ers, and without any considerable delays
during each of the winters of 1880-81-82-83
and thus far in 1884. While this is true of
north Dakota, it may be further stated that
in the valleys of Montana the snow fall is
light, and while there is more snow in east
ern Washington and Oregon there is scarcely
any in the portion of that state and territory
west of the Cascade mountains.
A Southern Pool Meeting.
Washington, D. C, February 19. —The
Southern Railway and Steamship associa
tion began a special meeting to-day. Re
porters were excluded, but gentlemen pres
ent furnished the following abstract: The
proceedings and object of the meeting were
to adjust matters of disagreementjbetween the
Georgia Central and the Eastern Tennessee,
Virginia and Georgia railways, and decide
whether the associated pool shall continue.
Seventy gentlemen were present, repre
senting all the prominent southern
railroad and steamship companies. The con
vention was called to order by Senator Brown.
The committee, to which were referred the
points of .difference between the Central
road and the Eastern Tennessee and the
Eastern & Georgia Railroad company,
made its report in the'shape of a set of resolu
tion, the purport of which was, that the com
pany belonging to tbe association was en
titled to the exclusive control of its local
traffic brought to competitive points. The
resolutions were adopted, whereupon Fink,
representing the Eastern Tennessee &
Georgia company, regarding the action as a
decision against his company, gave
notice that it would retire from
the association. Haskell, president of the
Charlotte, Columbia & Augusta Railroadjcom
pany, inquired what the effect the resolutions
would be, and regarded them as equivalent
to a dissolution of the association. Senator
Brown replied, the withdrawal of a member
would not necessarily break up an associa
tion. After a pause, a member moved that
the existing movement be continued to June
1, and endeavor to bring about an arrange
ment of the difficulties, and in the event of a
failure to agree, a full association
to meet, and if possible, provide for a further
continuance till January 1. Fink said he
would reconsider his action if the association
favorably regarded this motion. The motion
was adopted, with theeffectof causing Raoul,
of the Central Georgia company, to give no
tice that his system of roads would refuse to
be bound by the agreement after March 1.
The disruption of the association seemed im
minent. Raoul reproached the association
for its course, as shown by the
adoption of the commissioner's report in
favor of his lines and its subsequent action
of the adoption of a motion opposite.
Increase and. Decrease of Business.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.J
Chicago, Feb. 19.—From a systematic re
view of the earnings of American railroads
for 1883, the following interesting facts are
deduced: The four roads northwest of St.
Paul average 5.6 per cent, decrease in earn
ings to the mile; the ten roads west and
northwest of Chicago average 0.9 per cent,
derease; the eleven roads 60dth and south
west of St. Louis averaged 1.1 per cent, in
crease; and ten roads north of the Ohio
river and east of the Mississippi river aver
aged 1.7 per cent, decrease; the nineteen
roads south of the Ohio and Potomac and east
of the Mississippi river, 2.5 per cent,
decrease and the ten eastern roads averaged
10.1 percent, decrease. The total average earn
ings to the mile decreased 1.2 per cent. In
January the decrease was 4 per cent.; in
February 2.2 per cent.; in April 2.5 per
cent.; in May 1.4 per cent.; in June 3 per
eent.; in July 0.15 per cent.; in August2.8
percent.; in November and December 5.4 per
cent.; while they increased 7.2 per cent, in
March, 0.15 per cent, in September, andj.5
per cent, in October.
Three Daily Trains to the Pacific.
Fargo, Feb. 19.—The western bound train
on the Northern Pacific this morning had on
board John Muir, C. S. Fee, J. M. Hanna
ford. and A. D. Charlton, high officials, with
private secretaries, wives -and various other
parties, mostly going through to the coast.
General Passenger Agent Fee stated that af
ter April «lst, three trains per day would be
run between St. Paul and Fargo,* the first
leaving St. Paul in the morning would prob
ably run to Livingston, to accomodate the
National park travel; the Pacific express
would leave St. Paul at noon, and reach Far
go in about eight hours. After the Ains
worth bridge over the Snake river is completed
this train will make the trip to Pprtland in
four days. It was stated that arrangements
are in progress for a fast train from Chicago
to St. Paul, connecting closely with the
Northern Pacific, so that the trip from Chica
go to the coast will be made in five days—
one day quicker than any other route. The
officials anticipate a heavy traffic and grea t
rush to the mines in the spring.
A Canadian Protest.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.J
Toronto, Ont., Feb. 19.—An indignation
meeting was held here to-day, which was
composed of leading business men of Cana
da, to protest against the amalgamation of
the Canadian Pacific and Grand Trunk rail
ways, which two corporations now eontrolthe
whole railway interests of Ontario. There
had been a rumor of the amalgamation of
these two roads to favor a high monopoly in
the country, and the meeting, in strong
terms, opposed anything approaching such a
measure, and will advise the government to
oppose it in the interest of the country. The
whole country is in a ferment over the mat
ter, as the anticipated amalgamation would
place the railways in a position to charge ex
orbitant rates, while the country would have
The Water Don't Touch Them.
At the waters in the Ohio river and lu
immediate tributaries are very high and are
destroying a good deal of property, a consid
erable interest is manifested in the public
mind to ascertain whether or not there is
any danger in going south. Mr. Teasdale,
of the St. Paul & Omaha line, the "Royal
Route," which has a southern connection,
yesterday telegraphed to Mr. A. H. Hanson,
general passenger agent of the Illi
nois Central road to know the
exact situation on the Ohio and
the latter replied as follows:
Chicago, Feb. 19.—To F. M. Teasdale:
Our general superintendent telegraphs me
there is not the slightest danger at that point
on account of high water. Our tracks are
three feet higher than they were last year,
and the water is not within three feet of last
year's flood, when we had no trouble. Send
all you can and we will take them through.

A Railway Fraud.
New York, Feb. 19. —Inquiry was made
here to-day anenta "confidential circular is
sued by the Railroad Shareholders associa
tion, and signed John Livingston, president,
New York." Railroadmen say the circular
which Livingston spread broadcast over the
land will receive no attention. A Central
Pacific railroad official said, his company took
no stock in any of Livingston's schemes
or railroad shareholders associations.
It is presumably composed of Livingston,
who plays the part of president, board of di
rectors, secretary and treasurer. The Cen
tral Pacific is not identified with certain rail
roads or other line,s in raising funds to de
feat the legislation. The city directory gives
the office of Livingston as Temple Court.
At that building, a reporter was informed
that Livingston has never occupied any of
its offices, and had never engaged one.

MAID, WIFE AND WIDOW,
The Short and Sad Experience of a
Young- Illinois Woman.
[Special Telegram to the Globe.J
' Chicago, Feb. 19.—A sad sequel to a mar
' rikgc Jias recently occurred here, where the
bride saw her husband die almost ere his
his lips had ceased to tingle with the thrills
caused by the first wifely kiss and ere the
orange blossoms had faded in the wreath
with which he crowned her. The joyous
wedding bells tolling a dirge and ringing a
requiem to her dead love and coffined hopes.
At 7 o'clock Saturday morning last, Geo.
A. Payne married Miss Belle
Jarvis, one of the loveliest young
.ladies of Monmouth, 111., and the couple
took the 7:30 a. m. train for a wedding trip
to Chicago and other eastern points. They
arrived at 0:30 of the same evening, and
took apartments at the Matteson house, in
tending to remain over until Monday. Mr
Payne had been subject to rheumatism for
some time, but had anticipated nothing seri
ous to result from it. He had recently be
come conscious that the trouble was affecting
his lungs and heart, but had not spoken of
it to his lady love thinking
it would pass away. On Sunday
morning he felt the trouble return and had
spasmodic attacks through the day, each one
of increased severity. In the evening, in
his room with his wife at his side, the disease
assumed an alarming phase and Dr, Stubbs
who boards at the hotel was hastily summon
ed. He expressed the opinion that the pa
tients life would be short, though he antici
pated that the climai would not come for
some time. At 7:30 in the evening. Mr.
Payne expired and the bride of sixty
hours was left s widow. Her grief
was heartrending and she is still greatly
prostrated. Mr. D. 0. Templeton and his
wife, of Monmouth, whose house the new
widowed bride had for years made her home,
came up yesterday afternoon and took Mrs.
Payne and the remains home to Monmouth.
Mr. Payne was a general traveling solicitor
for the Kittoning Fire Insurance company,
of Kittoning, Pa., and was most favorably
known in central Illinois. He was a son of
B. F. Payne, of Monmouth, and a nephew
of E. A. Payne, who died In New York city'
one year ago. Deceased was 31 and his bride
91 years old.
