Ir m)ka at thi diatanco as if tho tirt r?njou wlioeio Biijiort it in ueccusary for the managers of l'rttjident Arthur's Sena torial lxx)in to fcecuro in that of Mr. Arthur himself. According to all rejjort.s ho has re;eatedly asserted that ho would not enter into a Heramblo for the place, but it L aa plain as the noso on a man's face that there is tfoin to Ik or rather that there is already, a scramble. At the New Orleans exhibition itolitics and lal)or piestions have loth cropped out. So vend members of New York trades afembiies, visiting the exposition, were indignant to thul, on exhibition, necimens of work ior formed at the Texas jKnitentiary. They improved the oppor tunity by reading the South and the Democrats a lesson on the evil of bring ing servile labor into competition with freo toil. The Tribune's New Orleans special reports them as threaten ing to call, through the lips of Cox, the attention of Congress to the appear ance of the fruits of convict labor in an ex iioeition aided by national funds. They Hwjm confident, also, of their ability to create in the Sonthern States a commo tion over the use of prison labor; and they give a lively account of the methods, already somewhat familiar, pursued in order to keep the prison shops full. One btory is that a colored mim was con demned to a life imprisonment for pur loining a ham and some chickens. The evidence that Gov. lJegolo's action in pardoning VanWagener was an out rage on the pooplo among whom the. villain is to bo set loose, grows as circum btances bocomo better known. The btory which tho prisoner told a reporter is without doubt a web of fabrications, and has alre.idy called forth an emphatic de nial from ex-Governor Jerome of tho statement that ho ever promised to par don VanWagenor. Tho ex-Governor adds: 'His release from prison is an outrage, in my judgment. It simply turns him out to join a band of robbers and murderers to whicn ho formerly le longod." Ieforo committing hi3 dastardly crime, VanWagener lived at Muskegon. The AVifMof that place, which has always Kuprorted Gov. Iiogole, says: "Ionia people criticise severely Van Wagoner's pardon 'by Gov. Begolo. So does nearly every ouo who knows fully tho circum btances of tho case, and who has any re gard for justice." 'Die Chicago Tribune pays of Gov. IVgole: "Ho has most shamefully used tho pardoning power sinco ho held tho oflice of Governor. All his sympathies seem to ran out toward tho criminal classes. Law-abiding peo ple he appears to hold in contempt" These expressions are only a sample of many of like character. Gov. 15egolo's action is not merely an outrage on tho people of Michigan, but it is a disgrace to tho State iu the eyes of other states. . . THE NICARAGUA TREATY. On account of tho importance of the proposed treaty with Nicaragua, and the fact that so few j arsons appear to com prehend its character, it may bo well to state brietly its terms and condition?. Tho treaty provides for the building of an iiitrr-ocvonic ship-canal across tho isth mus of Nicaragua by tho United States, to bo owned by them and the Republic of Nicaragua. Tho United States aro to have full liberty in locating and con structing the canal, while Nicaragua gives free right of w;iy to the canal and all spaces necessary to its construction, to gether with the right of way for a railroad and telegraph lines from one terminal of tho canal to the other. Nicar enrngua promises to appropriate any private property required, for which the United State are to pay tho value tixed by a commission selected by the t'.vo nations. A strip of territory two and a-half Knglish miles ia width, tho middle of whicU shall coincide with the middle of t!i canal, shall be vt aside and oft nod by the contracting parties, jointly. Over thu Nioarncia shall have civil jurisdic tion. No customs or toll shall be levied except by th two nations jointly, but Nicaragua shall provide a po'Hc system. The United States agree to furnish money to build the canal anil its accessories. The management of the canal shall lo vitd in a board of six managers, tliree sppointel by tlie President cf the United States, and confirmed by th" Senate, nn I tlirre by tho Kepr.blic cf Nicaragua. All the pnwod shall applied, first to th maintenance of the canal, and then of the Valance or.Mhird shall lx paid to Nicaragaa and two-third to the United if tatm. Tl: Cr-itvd States disavow anv Nicaragua, and cc to bejin Cn xreri within two years, and to colct5 it within ten year from the time vt btia ning.

It represented lcs than 5,W)0 votes. Philadelphia Vrsj: Carl Schuix saya he wants nothing, and that's jnst what the new firm had wnclndtxl to give him, Happy conscience; very. IhitTalo Telsfjmih: CriminAl Chicago now rejoices in a liighwaywoman." W caniMit U too thankfid that the reportsr did not write her up a "highwaylady." . Philadelphia Press: CoL Wattereon and his tar-eyed goddess of reform are to dance with IJenjy Butler and Belva Ann Lockwooii in the first qnadrillo at the in auguration ball. Chicago Inter Ocean: If Dakota had a saloiHi on every hill top instead of a school house, and voted the straight Democratic ticket, she would come in with a bounce and a yell. Chicago Evening Journal: The past year has been full of events to 6how that this countrv wants an extradition treaty with Canada that will return criminals rather than protect them. Cliicago Inter Ocean: When Cleve land gets to Washington he will likely ordqr Colonel Vilas, of Wisconsin, shin- jcd to him by tho most direct route. And it wm not oe a oau oruer, eitner. Ihiilalo Express: Enough fusa.has been made over tho confirmation of Sec retary McCulloch to warrant the suspic ion that that personage was being sad died upon tho treasury for life, instead of stopping a gap till the preeent adminis tration dies. Burlington Hawkeye: When G rover Cleveland is installed in the Presidential ollico on tho 4 th of next March, he should take an oath in form and substance like this: T do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States and Maria Halpin." Indianapolis Journal: It is said that the 6Ugar-grovera are greatly wrought up over tho possibility of the ratification of the Spanish treaty. Why so? The sugar-growing States returned majorities for the party that favors "progressive free trade." Why not free trade in su gar? Dotroit Free Press: It is possible, of course, that searching examination may discloso serious objections to the pro posed San Uomingo treaty, it is pos sible, also, that it may fall even without serious objections lecause of tho objeo- tionablo company in which it is fomid. But on its face it is an instrument to be commended. John R. Lynch to be Married. John R.
