Both the Republicans and Democrats
of Sioux City have organized clubs for
political work. There is a good exam
ple for the Republicans of Mitchell and
Davison county. The coming winter
offers the best possible opportunity for
the study and dissemination of Republi
can principles which were never so vital
to the bes-t interests of the county and
particularly of the northwest as now.
Ye that have thanks to give prepare
to give them now. There never was
more occasion for genuine thankful
ness to the Giver of all good gifts than
in this year of our Lord 1891. Not an
individual of us but can look back
and see for himself what his blessings
have been in the past year, and as a
community and a state the reasons for
gratitude are large and varied. There
fore, after several years of comparative
hardship and of uncertain prospects for
the future, we can
indulge our feel­
ings of gratitude for past favors receiv
ed and allow our hopes for the future
to take on a most roseate hue
The opposition press is making
great howl over the fact that the Re
publican papers of this state are talk
ing plainly about some of the minor
matters within the party which seem to
need correcting, and try to make them
selves believe that these criticisms are
indications of a quarrel within the
ranks. This is not only an entirely
wrong conclusion to draw but it is
confession that neither of the other
parties has any well defined principles
upon which to win but must needs rely
entirely upon Republican disaffection
to give it a ghost of a show. And right
here is where both will find themselyes
most gloriously left next fall.
About all that the much talked
Alliance gathering in Indianapolis has
done so far is to quarrel over the third
party proposition, consider charges
against its prominent members, and dis
cuss the advisability of cutting down
the representation to conform to the re
duced revenues from the sub-alliances
The sub-treasury question is also liable
to cause a split as a large proportion
the delegates oppose it and threaten
bolt and form a new organization if it
made a test of fealty to the Alliance
Meanwhile the third party organs in I York
this state continue to stuff such of their
followers as will swallow the lies wilh
the claim that the body as a political
ganization is growing all oyer the
country. And now comes ex-Senator
VanWyck of Nebraska with the asser
tion that the sub-treasury plan and the
land loan scheme are the only things
that threaten the stability of the new
party, with which he haa recently cast
his lot wholly ignoring the fact that
upon these two propositions rest fully
two-thirds of the structure which these
modern iconoclastic reformers have
builded: &
THE REPUBLICAN force will endeavor
observe Thanksgiving Day in
fitting manner, and as labor will not be
consistent with such observance there
will be no paper issued tomorrow
Gov. Hill of New York shows his
real calibre by including the recent
Democratic victory in that state in his
reasons for issuing a Thanksgiving
proclamation. And yet he is actually
talked of as a presidential possibility,

The growth of party bossism has dur

threatening proportions. Political
methods have reached the point where
the individual citizen can exercise no
real control over municipal, state or

We should think our Democrstic con

The movement to oust Senator-elect
Brice of Ohio on the ground that he
was not a resident of the state at the
time of his election and is not now will
not down. It even has some pretty
good Democratic backing among the
friends of Gov. Campbell, who feel that
their alien Senator did not render the
assistance he should have in the recent
campaign. Just the same it would be
good politics for the Republicans to let
the Democrats lie on the senatorial bed
they have made for themselves, though
there are several strong precedents for
just such action as has been proposed in
this instance. But itfn't it a striking
commentary upon Democratic hypocrisy

Reported Heavy Wind Storm in Wash

Communication Possible with
the Capital City.
Pittsburg Visited by a Destructive
Rain and Wind Storm—Build
ings Demolished.
BALTIMORE, Md., Nov. 24.—This city
has been without communication with
Washington since early in tHe morning
The last intelligence received from that
city was a telephone message stating
that a terrific hurricane was raging and
that several people had been killed. It
was also said that great destruction to
buildings had been caused by the tor
nado, many being unroofed. Immedi
ately after the receipt of this communi
cation the wire went down and nothing
further has been heard. All the tele
graph wires are also interrupted giving
evidence of the fury of the gale. It is
evident that the havoc wrought must
have been great, as even at this dis
tance the wind blew at the rate of
Fifty Miles Per Hour
and signs, chimneys and everything
movable was sent flying. Advices from
neighboring cities show that the hurri
cane is general in this section,
being accompanied in many
instances by furious rain
storms amounting almost to cloudbursts.
It will be some little time before com
munication can be re-established with
Washington, and then it will have to be
by railroad, as it will be almost an im
possibility to get the wires into shape in
a day. Floods have resulted from the
heavy rains in Maryland and Southeast
ern Pennsylvania, and it is believed that
reports of great damage and perhaps loss
of life will be received as soon as any
means can be had of conveying intelli
gence. The gale on Chesapeake bay is
one of the hardest known for years. The
oyster smacks have run for shelter when
possible, but it is not deemed probable
that all have escaped.

NEW YORK, Nov. 24.—Telephone ad

the city great damages is reported. Fin
ley's run,, which flows into the Alle
gheny river at Brilliant Station, was
transformed from an insignificant
stream into a raging torrent and several
houses near its mouth were either car
ried away bodily or shifted from their
foundations. At Shady Side, in the
Twentieth ward, the water came down
from the hills covering the streets sev
eral feet deep with mud and water and
bursting the sewers in several instances.
At Soho the water rushed down Second
avenue in such volumes as to stop the

Over in Allegheny City great alarm was
felt, and persons living in the vicinity

household effects. Up to 2 o'clock,
however, no great damage had been
caused in that vicinty, although in the
district along the river cellars were
flooded and communication was only
possible along River street in boats.
The neighborhood of Woods run was
also partly under water and cellars on
the south side were deluged by torrents
from Washington heights. It is impos
sible, as yet, to get the exact damage,
but it will unquestionably be very
Burglar Killed in a Trap.
WALNUT, Kan., Nov. 24.—Just before
daylight a burglar entered the store of
W. McLain at this place. McLain had
been robbed several times before and
had set a trap for the thieves. The
burglar entered the building by the
rear door and sprung the trap, receiving
in his body below the left arm a double
charge of buckshot, from the effects of
which he died in four hours. Before he
expired he said he lived in Peoria, Ills.,
and had a brotlier living there.
Died After a Drunk.
RHINELANDEK, Wis., Nov. 21.—Two

two grains of morphine, died from the
dose during the morning. They were

most important meeting in the history
of Toryism in England. The recent
Liberal victories at the polls have in the
popular mind been the shadows of a

however, that the Conservatives have
definitely decided upon the rejection of

representation and the creation of a

Diphtheria. Epidemic.
ST.LOUIS, Nov. 24.—Diphtheria is rag
ing in Bell ville, Ills.
,and amounts almost
to an epidemic. It broke out in Sep
tember and since that time its ravages
have been very severe and a large num
ber of deaths have occurred. It has as
sumed such alarming proportions that
large number of citizens have with
drawn their children from the public
and private schools. It is estimated
that in its various stages there are be
tween 200 and 800 cases in Belleville and
vicinity. The citizens are very much
excited and a meeting will probably be
called to take action toward checking
the spread of the terrible disease.
Suicided While Insane.
CHICAGO, NOV. 24.—Rev. Ezra Marsh
Boring, while temporarily insane com
mitted suicide by hanging himself at
the residence of his son, Charles O
Boring, 142 Maple avenue. Evanston.
He was 78 years old, and a superannu

pal church. Dr. Boring had been in
poor health for some time and was
possessed of a morbid suicide mania.
