The conviction of Fleury for the J
1*5,000 bank robbery reflects great credit
apou County Attorney Pierce Butler,
lie had to contend with two able law
yers, one of them, Mr. Erwin, being
the peer of any attorney in the United
. States in criminal practice, and supe
rior to most. The testimony was such
that it was only by the most skillful
handling that it could be woven into a
convincing tale. Mr, Butler's success
as county attorney stamps him as a
lawyer for whom higher honors are in
"store. Xj .- / :
At last the Brazilian insurgents
have unmasked.- Several weeks ago
the Globk declared that their purpose,
in rebelling [against the Peixoto gov
ernment was to secure the restoration
of the monarchy, the young Count d'Eu
'to assume the throne from which his
grandfather, Dom Pedro,, was driven
several years ago. This declaration
will place Mello and his adjutants in
their proper position before the world.
In the future tney need expect no sym
pathy from the friends of republicanism
on this continent.
It is reported that the committee on
banking of the house is' displeased be

in his message of all reference to the
abolition of the tax on-state banks. The
president also omitted reference 10 sev
eral other questions of current interest,
as, for instance. "Who killed Crouin?"
"Who struck Billy Patterson?" and
"Where am 1 at?" All these are of
quite as grave importance as the state
bank question, and yet wo hear of no
general indignation because Mr. Cleve

The discovery of the dynamite plots
in Loudon the other.day forcibly recalls
the Guy Fawkes plot to blow up the par
liament buildings a couple of centuries
ago. There is almost equal excitement
over the present affair as there was'
over the old-time plot, but apparently
with less reason. The recent "plot,"
when simmered down to facts, simply
showed that the drummer for a house
. dealing in explosives had incautiously
displayed some of his samples, and a
few timid men had started a rumor
afloat that, gathering in horrors --"as it
passed from mouth to mouth, finally
reached * the proportions of a gigantic
conspiracy to destroy the buildings in

Another Chicago bank, organized
under the state law, has suspended with
heavy liabilities, the assets consisting
chiefly of notes of its own officers ana
their relatives and friends, which are
worth nothing except the price they
would bring as waste paper. It seems
likely that a few more failures of this
lescription will awaken the legislatures
lo the necessity of incorporating in the
state banking laws a clause prohibiting
liie loaning of depositors' money to offi
•-■eisa-** the banks. Such an inhibition is
contained in the national banking law,*
and no" officer can ootain accommoda
'->- lions from these institutions in excess
of a stipulated j percentage of its capital
. without rendering himself liable to pros
ecution for felony. . -.
The grip has made, its appearance
jnce more, and men and women who do
aot iffle and sneeze are becoming un
fashionable. The disease thus far has
seen milder than in previous years, but
Many suffer acutely from its attacks.
The makers of and dealers in nostrums
mat are supposed to cure the complaint
ire doing a thriving. business, and the
undertakers are assuming a more "cheer
ful demeanor, It teems strange that
medical r science has not J yet discovered
a specific for this annoying and danger
ous ailment. The roost eminent physi-
cians are at Ja'. loss to account for its
prevalence and are * powerless" to"arrest
its -; progress. - Persons '■ who -are [■'. pos
sessed -of -a good constitution ; usually !
recover, but . tlie old -aud* feeble readily
succumb to its ravages. .. *
In the omission from the annual esti
mates of the appropriation for the main*;
tenance of the Bureau of American Re
publics' there comes ; the finale \ to' the
dream that Blame* indulged himself in
of uniting all the republics of the West
ern ' continent r In" one great zollverein,
which would extend our tariff wall all
around tho southern half of the hemi
sphere ' and \ engage ■• this -nation in the .
profitable occupation of exclusively sup
plying '. our^inauy-hue-ii brethren down
there with what they wanted and filling
them up with an- appreciation of our
great and only "American system." .
What a pretty picture It was when that
Pan-American congress assembled,"'. with
the "plumed knight" presiding over a
body jof delegates representing every
nation on the continent. Canada being
only a colonial dependency anyhow? and
having a capacity of her own to do some
of the supplying and : a desire to reap
some of the benefits, was not invited to
join the love feast; but representatives
of all the governments from Mexico to
Patagonia were gathered . in the hall to J
discuss the methods ' whereby . there
might be formed a brotherhood of re
publics bound together with the ; bands
of good fellowship, a common destiny,
and of trade and commerce, especially
the last. -*"-.'. XJ
There was to be, as a part of the grand
scheme, the" Pan-American railroad,
which was to run down the backbone of
the continent*, with its laterals reaching
into the maris of each.; republic, and
which, in the fat concessions and boun
ties and guarantees it would bring with
it. promised many a safe anchor which
thrifty men might seize : to "cast to
windward," it they were not "dead
heads in the enterprise." How many
mouths must have watered at the pros
pect. Men whose memories yet held in
fond remembrance the halcyon days of
the Credit Mobilier, and others . who
were not let in on the ground; floor of
the Pacific roads, but yet j knew how
much it profited those who were, hugged
themselves in joyful anticipation of the
fat takes in store and made ready to be
on hand at the distribution. .
But it very soon developed that our
fellow republicans from the semi-bar
barous countries were by.no means the
unsophisticated Indians whose fore
fathers Mr. Blame's ancestors -J had
driven such lucrative bargains with for
land and pelts. The stained glass and
beads and colored calicos for which the
vision and sentiment of a federation of
republics stood, did not blind these
children of the Southern hemisphere
lo the practical and business questions,
and in these they showed a craftiness
and shrewdness which was fully a
match' for the Yankee -from Maine. :
When the "mask of sentiment was
dropped and the details of business were
takeu up the Southrons -were just as
keen to get the long end of the bargain
as were our own delegates, and. as is
usually the case, when capable men are
trying to ; get the ; better of each other
and are mutually aware of the "purpose
nothing results nothing came of the con
gress except its debates and the spend
ing of a good round 'sum and the estab
lishment of the Bureau of American
Republics. . y'fXX; ~ -
This latter has furnished a snug har- I
bor for -a few needy politicians who
have amusea themselves with publish
ing : a volume now and then of in
formation about the Southern countries,
which no one ever read, and 'in punc
tually and energetically drawing their*
salaries. And now this- is to end, the
unfeeling and iconoclastic! secre
tary having summarily put an
end to it by cutting off the sup
ply of money on which its little life
hung, and with the year the Bureau of
American Republics will go .r r,
"Like tenants who quit without warning, .
Down the back entry of time.*'
NEED OF UNITY.
j There seems to be a disposition among
those having the management of the
new tariff bill to make haste slowly.
Consideration of the measure will not
begin in the house until after the holi
day recess,- it will probably be the
middle of j January before the debate
has fairly begun. How long it will last
omniscience alone can tell. j
The Republicans announce that they
will offer no factious opposition to the
passage of the bill. They will endeavor
to secure amendments which they deem
proper, and, failing in this, will permit :
its passage. This assurance would be
gratifying if it were worthy of credence.
But, unfortunately, opinions! differ jas
to what "factious opposition" consists
of. The silver J senators resented 1 the
accusation of being factious in their op
position, and yet they consumed the
time of the senate for more thau two
months in - wearisome discussions in
tended only to serve the purposes jof
delay. There are many more opponents
of tariff revision than there were of
those averse to silver legislation. If
.the same tactics are pursued iii the tar
iff discussion that characterized the de
bate on silver, no action could 7 possibly
be taken within a year unless the rules
of the senate were so amended as to
permit of closure. :As yet there seems
to be no disposition on the part of the
senators to cut loose from their tradi
tions," absurd though they are. It would
be regarded as undignified to be mod
ern : frivolous to cast aside the moth
eaten reminiscences of the past aud
conform to the necessities of the pres
ent. If there Is one tiling that the av
erage senator dotes on more : than 'an
other, it is something that smells. of the
must of antiquity. The-more - pungent
the odor, the more worm-eaten the text-"
ure, the higher it stands in their regard*. ,

brightly burnished Is treated as a sense

The delay in urging consideration of

The iron and . coal interests will be en

IMPATIENT SENATOR DULPH.
It is the unquestioned right of every
American citizen to criticise -.the acts of
officials placed r in authority, and to ap
prove or condemn those acts at discre- '
tion. .There is no law "requiring him to
know what :he is talking about. The .
privilege is not restricted to men of in
telligence and wide information, for. if
so confined, it would be regarded as an
infringement of that right so dear to the
heart of every American citizen— the
right of a mail to make" himself ridicu
Senator Dolph, of Oregon, has under
taken the task of demolishing Presi
dent Cleveland's Hawaiian policy with- .
out knowing what that policy is. 'He
exhibits both the bravery and the dis
cretion of Sancho Panza in his famous"
tilt with the windmill. -Indeed, he has :
improved upon the tactics of his Spau
ish prototype, for, finding no windmill
to assail, he has created one out of the .
exuberance of his own imagination, and
charged it with all the enthusiasm and
valor of the kuighes in the days of chiv
Tv his j speech >, on Tuesday ., Senator;
Dolph began by expressing surprise
that the American, government, should
be guilty of an attempt to restore to the.
: throne a woman who iis currently re- ;
ported to be a frequent violator of \ the
seventh j commandment. He does not
cite the statute under which he would
have the government act lii such a case,"
contenting himself with the. general
proposition that a woman of such char
acter.: has no rights which '. Christians : .
and Americans of good moral' character
are bound to respect. He does not pur-;
sue his argument to its legitimate con
clusion, which, it is needless to. say,
would cast a flaw upon the title of many
of his own colleagues to a seat In the
senate. The contention is a novel one,
however, lf it is a valid ; one," it would
make of this government a judge of the
moral delinquencies of all the rulers of
the world. It is needless to say that, if
we "should attempt such a censorship,
we would soon "find that we had bitten
off a larger mouthful than we could ;
successfully masticate. -
; r- Senator Dolph's speech is a fair sam
ple of what the vulgar would call the',
"guff" of those who criticise the Hawaii
an policy of the administration". It ; is ';
based upon 'purely hypothetical
grounds.- Not more than half a dozen
persons know what : the policy of the
; president is. J They can only infer it
from' the generalizations contained in
the letter -of J Secretary Gresham con
cerning the matter, from the report of
Commissioner Blount,, and from the
brief reference to the subject contained
.in Mr. Cleveland's message. But one
fact is positively known— that the.presi
deut regards the overthrow of the J
Hawaiian monarchy, accomplished as it
was by the aid of American marines,
as a flagrant outrage upon the rights of
a friendly power. This wrong we know
it is the intention of . the government to
atone, but whether this shall J be done
jby the restoration of the queen or J by
the payment to her of \ a ' sufficient in
demnity is as yet a matter of conjecture.
The policy most in harmony with prin
ciples of justice would be, perhaps, the
submission of the questions in contro
versy between the "royal and the provis
ional governments to a vote of the peo
pie, and,- their verdict having .-. been :
given, it would become the duty of this
government to see that it is obeyed:?
Senator . Hoar's " resolution, calling"
upon the president for all " available in
formation on the subject, will probably
lead to a better understanding: of " the
whole question.. The resolution is ; a
proper one, although not. "entirely. cour-*
teous.in view of the president's promise
in his message to communicate all such
information at an early . date, j The
country may rest assured that it will not
be kept in ignorance of any detail of the
entire transaction any longer than is ab
solutely necessary to enable the govern
ment to present its case in' its entirety.
It is not to the advantage of the admin
istration, to maintain secrecy .in, the,
matter. To attempt such a thing would
invite just criticism. . But the officials
cannot be blamed for ~ a - desire to delay
such a statement until such time as all
the facts bearing upon Jit can be pre
sented in such form as will enable the
public to arrive at a just conclusion.
EXIT, THE SEED HUMBUG. '-..
Somewhere under the seriousness and
dignity which Republican papers pre
fer to call his ponderosity there must be
a fund jof -r humor:' in the.; president's
make-up which he keeps fairly well in
baud, but which he gives us glimpses of
once in a while. -: Usually it is in some
speech or letter, but it broke away"- and
crept into bis message when he came to
talk about the department of agricult
ure and its abnormal function of dis
tributing seeds. '? ;. _ J"
Some sixty years ago 'some congress
man, [ anxious to J vindicate his official 1
existence, secured a modest appropria
tion of $10,000, J which was : to : be ex
pended by the secretary of the interior
in getting seeds of plauts and fruits and
grain whose culture 'in this country
might be deemed desirable, and which,
domesticated here, might add to thejfood
products of the nation*:' both" for con
sumption and for export. There may
have been latent in his * mind a con
sciousness that J too much . was being
done '; for. the manufacturers, - and j* that
the farmers should have something, but .
whether this thought was Tn;: the germ
of the seed business it soon got there" by
inoculation: or; J infection, and, once
domiciled, it grew and thrived as lustily
as any other- of the Infants. The ap
propriations Increased; annually, and
with them grew the need of ; more": ma
chinery;; which developed 'iV into j- the
bureau ;_ and : then : : into : a : . full-fledged *
department of agriculture, whose chief
bad the right to sit rat the table when
the cabinet gathered; to sit in solemn
conclave over the affairs of rstate.'C.J.^JjJ.?
X Eash successive commissioner of agri
culture felt it to be an imperative duty
:to spend all of 5 the "5 current appropria
tion, and get as much a larger one ns he
could; to * spend during his term. The'
experimental stage of ? introducing '; for
eign plants ' here J culminated with the
roaring farce* of . our. own Le Due and
his tea farm in"; South Carolina, which;
resulted in the production of ; a few
pounds of ill-flavored ; Tea . at a cost •* of
ever so mauy thousand dollars a pound.
But the field of foreign exploitation was
a limited one, and then the home field
: was :J worked '.Xi Seedsmen J all over . I the
country, made profitable bargains with
' the bureau or? the department fur
nish it with seeds. Minnesota seedsmen
' bought seeds' grown by Minnesota fann
ers and sent them to Washington, where

: made packages, Jof which Miunesotai
'. congressmen \ «ent "their share back :tu
Minnesota farmers to '."experiment"]
with. xxyy. ' 7 :~:. 7yy x'y. '"yy" \
The president pokes.fun at this hoary J
old -abuse, by showing iii. detail how,
thousand 'acres of 'cabbages and
onions" and corn and pumpkins : and
-.melons the seeds bought last year would'
plant. i; Nineteen thousand two hundred
acres could be put to raising cab
* bages | ior which seed was - supplied -jit;
! would take f 4'ooo acres to * use • the }_ seed '
: beans, while 8,025 acres would be shaded \
* by. the vines of >. the colicky cucumber v
; aud 2,675 acres ; would groan - under the }
■ load of luscious melons; both musk and 1
water, which would find their origin in '
the seeds bought by an indulgent gov-'
ernment, franked by congressmen miud
ful of bucolic votes, carried at the
public cost to the. grateful J farmers of
the country in 9,000,000 packages. r
The humor takes on a grim ness. how
ever, when the president says that the
secretary of agriculture has stricken out
$100,000 of the ..'usual appropriation Jof
; .135,000 made for tins purpose, and rec
ommends that the remaining be
strictly applied to experimentation with
new seeds, and these to be sent to the
state experimental farms, instead of
J being made a nightmare to. disturb the
'dreams of poor "congressmen. T Thus an

Wurtemburg at Berlin has resigned on
■account of the fact that he opposes the
project credited '~ to the emperor of re-?
placing the minister of war of Wurtem- ?
burg by a military cabinet. The rela

empire have -been strained -since last
\ summer, when the kingdom of Wurtem
burg * abandoned military ? maneuvers
owing to scarcity of fodder.
Paris, Dec. o.— The Paris edition of
the New. York Herald supplements the
; news *»- already.^ cabled J concerning the
strained relations between the kingdom
of ..Wurtemburg. and the emperor of
Germany by a dispatch from Berlln,
saying: "A highly placed official at
Stuttgart writes that a vain -attempt is
being made at Stuttgart and in Berlin
to conceal the events which have ' taken
place -■; at g Stuttgart. The /official re
ferred to continue., remarking that the
presence of Herr yon Moser, the Wur
temburg minister at Berlin, removes all
doubt of the cabiuet crisis which has
broken out since the emperor's visit to \
the castle; of Badenhausen, where the
emperor, who is an intimate friend of
our king, bitterly complains of the •
clandestine opposition -of Wurtemburg
to his policy./ He especially referred to
the conduct of Baron yon Mittnacht,
the premier and minister of
'-. ■■* J FOREIGN A FFAIIIS,
who was formerly his special : favorite,
and also complained of Woelcker (the
general in command of the Wurtemburg
or Thirteenth army corns) both of whom
he said were hostile to Prussia. : The
emperor charged Baron yon Mittnacht
with secretly coquetting with Prince
Bismarck," whom the emperor called an
old man in a Saxon forest, and who was
I visited by Baron you Mittnacht at Kiss
ingen, thus braying imperial displeas
ure. The emperor charged him with
officially encouraging instead of resist
ing agitation ■ against the wine tax.
When the king tried to justify Baron
yon Mittnacht by pointing out that the
tax-was impossible, the emperor flew
into a passion and cut him short in
terms which greatly shocked the king,
and then attacked the minister of war
and • Woelcker, whom he accused of
insubordination aud framing false re
ports regarding the drought in the
country in order to stop the Grand
Army maneuvers before the emperor.
The latter maintained that the reports
were only a frivolous . pretext J invented
to deceive him, which he had himself
ascertained by private inquiry.
| The king, in order to quiet the em
peror, "promised? to put everything
straight. Bnt the emperor said: "Last
year we were set at nought by the pre
text that there was cholera at Hamburg
this year it is the drought. This must
be stopped." - *.--■-
The result was that Baron yon Mitt
nacht's position became unbearable,
and as soon as he has advocated in the
HIS FAMOUS SPEECH
for the reform of the constitution,
will doubtless bo rejected, he will cer
tainly resign. . -XX ■'"""
The minister of war also, in spite of
his recent visit to. Berlin, is already
packing his trunks, and Woelcker has
asked to retire.
When the emperor was present at the
recent review here he treated the latter
like a dog and fcioed .not to see him,
though Woelcker was in command.
