THE ADMINISTRATION BIRD-TRAP.
An 1'ndealrable Condition.
Under the Republican party the peo
ple are taught to look to the federal
government for everything and to the
local povernnient for "nothing. The
United States courts are the tribunes to
which Republicans jioint the Keeker after
justice, and United States Deputy mar
shals exercise the functions of state con
stables, llie natural result is supine-
ztess on the part of the jieople in the en
forcenaent of the laws of the states.
Athens (Ga.) Banner.
DemocratN Made "N'o Miatake.
The selection ofMr. Harrity for the
chairnianship of the Democratic national
committee will doubtless give general
satisfaction to the party, inasmuch as
the new chai-ruan is a strict party man,
m shrewd organizer and an indefatiga
ble worker. The Republican managers
should not delude themselves with the
belief that the Democrats have made a
mistake in the selection of a chairman.

Republican Papers Trying to Revive the
Iftsae in Illinois.
The Republican newspapers and ora
tors, together with a corps of secret
agents, luemljersof oath-bound societies,
are at work endeavoring to revive the
knownotliing i.ssue in Illinois. Gov.
Fifer has exhausted every effort in the
way of promises of which he is capable
and that is saying a good deal to
recover the Gurman Lutheran vote. He
has totally failed in doing so.
Convinced that he is not going to
recover the German vote, he and his alios
are at work endeavoring to iersuade
Deimx-rats that they should not vote for
Altgeld, l-ecause Altgehl is going to be
supported by the Germans. In other
words, these Republicans are endeavor
ing to revive the knownotliing issue.
They rely upon inciting the hatred of
foreign born citizens. They hope to
create an issue, not on the lines of tariff
reform, not on the lines of the adminis
trative policies in the state, not on the
lines of good government, but upon the
question as to where men were born
With them it makes little difference as
to the character of the men who are
thus assailed: all they are endeavoring
to secure is Republican success. Tliev
are willing to sacrifice the .peaceful and
harmonious conditions of society in Illi
nois, so far as it relates to nationalities
and race questions, in order to land
Gov. Fifer once more in the executive
The question is: Are the people of Illi
nois, Republicans or Democrats, ready
to see a new issue raised which has abso
lutely nothing to do with state affairs.
Gov. Fifer lias said that lie desires the
school law amended to meet the views
of the German Lutherans; Judge Altgeld
always held this view. Hoth of them
declare they are in favor of the com
pulsory school law. There is no occasion
for any know not hingism or prejudice to
arise naturally out of the situation.
Democrats in Illinois, who allow news-
pajiers. Republicans, and orators, aided
by their secret society agents, to switch
the issue upon the knownotliing track
are being made fools of by the Repub-
lcans, who wish to use them to defeat
HE SLOPS OVER.
Think of It.
Third party ,men who complain that
they have nothing to expect from the
Democratic party should remember that
at no time since the war has the Demo
cratic party been in complete control of
the government. While it held the
presidency four years, and the lower
house of congress since 1S75, with the
exception of two terms, the Republican
majority in the senate has invariably
liern sufficient at such times to prevent
any legislation hostile to Republican
interests. The Republicans, however,
have lieen in complete control several
times, and every such occasion has been
signalized b3' an increase of the burdens
of the ieople. Democrat! who ire
thinking of voting the People's party
ticket would do well to think of this,
and give their old love a chance. This
is the year to do it. If the Democrats
carry this election in the states where
they ought to have a majority, the 4th
of March next will see them in complete
control of all branches of the government.
I'ifer'a Reekie Statements and Ilia Efforts'
to Kx tract Ilinirlf I roiu Ilia Own Quag
The Chicago Tribune correspondent at
Kewanee, in rejHjrtiiig Governor Fifer's
siteech on Wednesday, stated that the
governor said: '"I am for a compulsory
educational law and every German is
with me. Live or die, survive or jierish.
victory or Ueleat, governorship or no
governorship, I am in favor of a law
compelling every child, foreign born or
American, to learn the English language."
Those who know Governor Fifer will
recognize the language as being singu
larly like him. liesides that, those who
know the governor are aware that he
has a tendency, when he gets started in
any given direction, to keep on going
without any regard to prudence or polit
ical consideration. In other words, he
slops over. He not onlv talks too much
but he says too much.
IheUav after tins publication in its
columns TheTaibune published an ed
torial in which it undertook to disclaim
tne trutnfuiness of its own correspon
dent s report. "The governor, of course,
it says, "made no such declaration as
that quoted. He is not in favor of
compulsory education in public schools
The Tribune then went on to quote the
Republican platform so far as it sjieaks
of the school question. It said that that
was what Governor Fifer said, or meant
to say, or at least what he believed when
lie made his Kewanee speech. It also
said that The Tribune's correspondent at
Kewanee asserts that he blundered in re
porting Governor Fifer's speech and that
other persons in Kewanee make the same
In order to still further defend the
governor from his own statements, as
reported by The Tribune's own corres
pondent. The Tribune editorial writer
quotes Governor Fifer's speech in Chicago
on the Saturday preceding, and ex
plains that the sentiments then uttered
by him are the controlling sentiments of
his mind, and that his sentiments are
not the sentiments alleged to have lieen
uttered by him at Kewanee. The fact
of the matter is that Governor Fifer said
exactly what he was reported as saying
at Kewanee and was not shrewd enough
to detect the political effect of it, and
The Tribune is now trying to square him
with those Germans who have yet some
faith in him.
There is an impression abroad that tne
revolt against Fifer is mainly among
German Americans. This is hardly
true. While Germans will generally
Tote the Democratic ticket thin year they
will be in company with thousands of
native Americans who have heretofore
voted the Republican ticket.
For Attorney (.eiteral.
What we need in an attorney general
for the state of Illinois is a good lawyer,
and that w have in the person of
Maurice T. Moloney, the Democratic
nominee for that office. Mr. Moloney is
not only an able -la wyer, but a man in
every way worthy the resx-ct of the
people of the state. His practice is ex
tensive and successful, and as a lawyer
and a citizen he takes high rank. He
has been made a special mark for the
attacks of the opposition, wl.o. feeling
that they have a weak candidate of their
own, iiave resorted to slander in their
attacks iijmiii Mr. Moloney. His record
grows brighter under each attack, lor
his friends rushing to the rescue, present
to the people a showing in his U-haif
that would otherwise probably have not

The mother of a family hud taken great
pains to inst ruct the children never to use
the knife, but always the fork in convey
ing food to he mouth. On one occasion
the sou of eight years suddenly exclaimed
thut he "saw papa eatinc with his knife."
Papa 'vehemently denied it rather than
spoil the effect of mother's teaching,
whereupon the boy exclaimed, "Why,
papa, I saw you eating with your kuife
just now!" The good man replied, "No,
my dear son, you are mistaken; 1 always
eat with my teeth!" The hilarity which
followed threw the boy off the scent and
he did not press his charge. Cor. Chicago

"If W. II. Hinrichsen is elected secre
tary of state you will see some important
improvements in the management of
that office," said a prominent Republican
memler of the legislature. "He was
clerk of the last house and I must say
was the Ix-st clerk I ever saw. His books
were jerfection, and he adopted many
new schemes in the management of his
office that were of great convenience to
the public, the press and the members.
He is a natural accountant and had the
complete run of all the business of the
house. He was as ready to give infor
mation to one man as another and never
lost his famous smile. He was always
on hand, too, and it is said never was ab
sent from his ost one minute during
the business hours of the session. He had
the name of being a partisan when the
legislature met, and us Republicans were
afraid of him, but we soon learned that
while he was, in matters political, ready
to take every legal advantage for his
party yet in all other matters he was
fairness itself. Before the close of the
session he had gained the good will and
confidence of nearly every Republican
member, and we were ready to trust him
in anything. Many of us joined in the
purchase of the fine gold watch and
chain given him on the last day of the
Fession, for we felt that he deserved some
token of our esteem and confidence.
The Democrats swore by him, for in polit
ical matters he was a stand-by. He would
hold the house for two hours on a roll-call
in order to give an absent Democrat time
to get in and vote for United States sen
ator, or he would rattle the roll off in
two minutes if there was a point to be
made for his party. This used to make
us mad sometimes, but we always did
the same when we had control. I shall
really be glad if Buck is elected, and I
know he wiil make a jiopular officiaL"
