The laboring men of New York have

two dollars a year to enrich the pen
sion fund of a liberally compensated
body of public servants ; that he ve

The soldiers believe that these vetoes
were intended to carry out the spirit
of an article recently published as an
editorial in Dan Manning's paper de
manding the abandoument of their
organization by the members of the
G. A. R., and bitterly opposing the
organization of the "Sons of Veter
ans," in which the following brutal
language was used :
Its (the G. A. R's.) prominent mem
bership for years comprised loud,
brawling men who went to the war
to escape their characters, or because
there was money in it. The soldiers
who had been and are the bc-ft citi
zens had little or no influence in the
order in many places. The decora
tions of the graves were made the
subjects of "orders" of brutality and
illiteracy. Now and then the bettor
influences get coutrol, but the effort
to keep it taxes all their energies.
The patriotic citizens who were sol
diers and those who were not, unite
in the conviction that the organiza
tion has outlived its Usefulness and is
a part of a military spirit that ought
not to be tostered among a people
that would be tree.
Manning was Cleveland's next
friend and manager from the begin
ning, and has more power over him
than any man in the country. Stale
The stories told of caunibalism in
the Greely party are said by third
officer Kellcy, of the 6teamer "Bear,"
that the eating of the flesh of Lieut.
Kislingbury and private Henry were
true. The survivors, when brought
on board, were all but delirious, and
admitted that they had to cat the
dead bodies to preserve their own
lives. The cook of the "Bear" said
that all of the survivors stated that
they had to eat the flesh of the dead,
as all their food, except a little
leather or sealskin, had given out.
All the mcu on the "Bear" knew that
the bodies had been eaten, hut were
told not to speak about it when they
got into port. Coroner Robison, of
Long Island City, has written Miss
Dora Buck, of Lincoln, Neb., sister
of private Henry, asking if she de
sires his remains examined. If she
replies affirmatively the coroner will
have them examined by Drs. Burnett
and Hitchcock. It is stated in this
connection that since the result of the
examination of Kisliugbury's body,
the citizens of Long Island City are
greatly excited, but the coroner re
fuses to exhume Henry's body until
anthorized by his sister. We learn
that Mi6s Buck has answered in the
affirmative, desiring tho full facts be
General Logan met with a grand
reception at Utica, N. Y., last week.
There was a great crowd with music
and cannon at the depot. Senator
Coggshall introduced Logan. He ex
pressed the great pleasure it gave
him to meet 6uch a cordial welcome
everywhere he had been in New
York state, and his cordial reception
at Utica would ever be greatly re
membered. Reference had been
made to tho services which he had
rendered to his country. He felt
that whatever he may have done in
the past it had been solely in the line
of duty. Every American citizen,
when the country was in danger,
shonld stand ready to sustain it by
force of arms or otherwise. He re
mained a short time at the hotel
where thousands shook hands with
him. He is meeting with most
hearty greetings by the people
wherever he goes.
The records and relics of the
Greely arctic expedition, which were
brought to New York and there
turned over to the authorities of
Governor's Island, were brought the
other day to Washington City and
delivered to the chief signal officer.
They will be used by Lieut. Greely
m making his report of the expedition
and by the chief signal officer in
making his report to the secretary of
war. The collection includes all the
records of scientific work and dis
coveries of the Greely party, their in
struments and private papers, and
the diaries of the members.
We give a very brief summary of
the convention held a week ago to
day, as its results arc no longer news
to most of our readers. Tho conven
tion was presided over by C. C. Mc
Nish of Stanton county. Tho candi
dates were put in nomination by an
informal ballot and on the first formal
ballot the result stood: Butler S,
Clark S, Burns 5, Dorscy 54, Abbott
1G, Hilton 18, Thayer 10, Hayes 15,
Kinkaid S, Ciarkson 11, McFarland 7.
In the second, Clark gained 1, Thayer
1, Hayes lost 1, Kinkaid gained 1.
Third ballot : Butler 7, Clark 9, Burns
5, Dorsey Gl, Abbott 12, Hilton IS,
Thayer S, Hayes 15, Kinkaid S, Clark
son 11, McFarland 7. On the fourth
ballot Platte, Holt and Buffalo coun
ties voting for Dorscy, made the nom
ination, which shortly was dcclarod
unanimous. The defeated candidates
except Burns, Butlcr.CIark and Hayes
made speeches appropriate to the
occasion. The candidate said :
Mr. President and gentlemen of the
convention : I cannot find words to
fitly express my thanks for tho dis
tinguished honor jou have coufeered
by nominating me as your candidate
for representative from this district
iu the 49th congress. Gentleman of
the convention I feel that in giving
me this nomination you have passed
by those who by reason of greater
political experience and more natural
ability could have served you better
than is possible for me to do but geu
tlemen, while confessing this allow
me to say 1 yield to no man in loyalty
to the grand old party whose repre
sentatives I sec before me, or in love
and devotion to our glorious common
wealth of which we arc so proud.
Mr. President, I trust I appreciate
and fully realize the importauce ot tho
duties that attach to the position for
which you have nominated me. I
promise you, and through yon the
people of this state, that if the action
of this convention is ratified by the
people at the polls in November
whatever of ability I may have and
all the energy I possess shall be given
freely, willingly to your service and
it shall be my constant endeavor to
serve you honestly, efficiently and
well, and I sincerely trust ray official
life may be such that no gentleman
who has supported me on tho floor of
this convention will ever have just
cause to regret his action. Mr. Presi
dent and gentlemen, much has been
said by the papers of this state in ref
erence to the dictation of corporations
and their attempt to influence the
delegates who compose our conven
tions. Allow mo to say that if there
is a mau on the floor of this conven
tion who was eiectcd a member of
this body by the aid and influence of
any corporation I do not know it; if
there is a mau in this district who
aspired to a ocat in this convention
and was defeated by the aid or influ
ence of any corporation, I have not
learned the fact and I do not believe
there is such a mau, but I do believe
gentlemen, that you were elected by
the people of this district fairly and
honorable, and that you represent the
people of this district and iu giving
me this nomination you speak for the
people, and 1 accept this nomination
as coming from the people's repre
sentatives, and if elected i shall try to
represent the people of this district in
congress and will assure you that it
will be my earnest endeavor to treat
every man alike, extending to the
poorcnt homesteader upon our fron
tier the same courtesy and considera
tion that I would give to the presi
dent of the wealthiest corporation
within our state. Geutlemeu, I will
not attempt to discuss the issues of
tins campaign, thss is not the time or
place, and I feel it is useless for me to
tell this convention how earnestly and
gladly I support our chosen nominees,
Blaine and Logan, nor how heartily I
endorse the magnificent platform en
unciated at our national convention ;
nor how willingly I will labor lor the
election of our ticket. Gentlemen of
the convention, again I thank you for
the distinguished honor conferred
upon inc. I accept your nomination
and am ready for the canvass, fooling
assured that a glarious victory will be
won in November. Tremendous
In a well written article addressed
to young men in America, the New
York Tribune presents the following:
A great many new voters will cast
their first ballots for president this
fail. Nine-tenths of them are young
men who have to make their own way
in the world, with brains and indus
try for their capital. The older men
who have saved something have an
advantage; it matters less to them
whether a day's work brings good
wages or poor. But the young man
who has to start at the foot of the
ladder how is ho to climb, if the
wages of labor arc to be cut down to
his cost of living 1
The question whether American or
British wages shall prevail here,
therefore, is a more vital one to young
men than to anybody else. British
wages do not even fill the stomach,
and leave nothing for the pocket or
the savings bank. American wages
enable the thrifty and capable man to
support a family decently, and to put
aside something for the children or
for a time of misfortune. British
wages, at the best, keep a sturdy
worker hovering on the border be
tween independence and servitude;
tho first sickness, or loss of employ
ment, or other disaster that conies, is
apt to leave him quite at the mercy of
employers, and he falls into the ranks
of the helpless and hopeless toilers.
Those who want to try British wages
iu this country ought to have their
pockets well lined first.
Citizenship of the republic must
bo the panoply and safeguard of him
who wears it. The American citizen,
rich or poor, native or naturalized,
white or colored, must everywhere
walk secure in his personal and civil
rights. The republic should never
accept a lesser duty, it can never as
sume a nobler one, than the protection
of the humblest man who owes it loy
alty protection at home, aud protec
tion which shall follow him abroad,
into whatever land he may go upon a
lawful errand. James G. Blaine.
Alleged fraudulent surveys exist
in Dakota, and it is stated that As
sistant Laud Commissioner Harrison
of Washington City will soon go out
there to straighten up the surveys
made in that territory. Already
numerous complicafions have arisen
out of those fraudulent surveys.
A dude wearing tight pants and

Ben. Butler's letter of acceptaucc
strikes some very hard blows against
the democracy. He calls the Cleve
land platform, one of expedients aud
not principles, aud denounces the
convention for rejecting the princi
ples of tho Massachusetts democracy,
spurning their platform, and instead
of taking any statesman of the De
mocracy, nominating a gentleman
whom two years ago there were not
forty voters in the ranks of the Mas
sachusetts democracy know lived on
earth. Ho regards the tariff as a vita!
issue, and his description of the labors
of the Chicago committee on plat
form is brief, graphic and truthful :
"then ensued in the committee a
struggle of many hours so to irame a
tariff plank that should nppsar to say
what mine said aud yet not say it, and
appear to say the contrary, and yet
not say it: like the Western hunter
who tried to shoot his rifle at some
thing he dimly saw stirring in a bush,
so as to hit it if it was a deer, aud miss
it if it was a calf." All will agree
that General Butler is a man of intel
ligence, aud he gives it as his opinion
that the defeat of any possible nomi
nee of the party upon a free-trade
platform, was inevitable, if not desi
rable. From the man nor iu which he
speaks of ex-Senator Thurmau of
Ohio, we judge his nomination would
have pleased Butler, as it would many
other democrats inclined to railroad
legislation. The Journal believes
that Butler is working for 1SS8.
Nnrc 31e From 3Iy Friend.
According to the Boston Pilot
(July 2fi) the London Times advises
English editors, who seem to be all
in favor of Cleveland, to be careful
as to their praise of Clevolaud, lest it
"may be used against hiai in
A m e ri ca." Texas Jfon ilor.
And yet, the "English editors" con

praise ; and to abuse Blaine and

their dislike of England, and for their
avowed eagerness to pursue a policy

Harper's Weekly and Puck fancy
they are advancing the Democratic

the Irish. Only for them the Demo

Quite a decided sensation was
produced in New York the other
day by a double-headed editorial
which appeared in the New York
Independent bitterly antagonistic to
Grover Cleveland, whom it has sup
ported. The report of Dr. Twining
on the Cleveland-Buffalo scanda 1 did
the business, by which he notes the
fact that Dr. Twining admitted and
confirmed, while excusing and ex
plaining the affair. The Independent
refuses longer to support him. More
than this, it advises Cleveland to
withdraw from the ticket at once,
and in his failing to do so the paper
says he should be forced to leave the
ticket. The Sun boldly says that the
democrats must remove Cleveland.
