Doubtless Brother ALLISON has a heart for

The rnal wonder In the cone I not that a
Binglo Instance of opposition t the surveys
has at length boon reported but that there
should not have been more serious demon

suspicious of It at least until Its advantages
a fully made known t them Others may
fear tho reduction of lands over which by
virtue o occupation they already holda
species of conceded ownership Borne chiefs
who foresee the breaking up of tribal rela

who already U on excessive shore of the

It will not b strange therefore t hear of
troubles o other reservations like those
which have occurred on the Lower BruI6
Tact arid patience will b required for the
proper execution of the law and strenuous
efforts should b made t eventually secure
the free and eager consent of the majority
before a conclusive division of lands in sev

The mere details of a heated personal

fatal mistakes In vital points The Industri

And Inevitable t such a course

I charged by some of the enemies of the Alaska
Company that it kills over 200000 seals a yoar
or twice a many a Its lease allows but its
official reports insist that only 101829
omola rur Insit IO829 wore
killed for the last year in procuring Its 100
000 skis The highest reasonable estimates
of skins taken by the poachers during tho year

Indeed before the despatches had begun t

Interview with him which was printed n

ho denounced President Clevelands admlnls
belief that Clove

Vorhees crats for rnomlaUoD On this last point Mr
I I do not think from my recent experience
11 tho West from my talks with leading West
ern Democrats and from my own personal
conviction that Cleveland will b noml
nated by the next Democratic Conven
tion I Is the opinion of Western Demo
crat that tho next President should b a
WMtorn m n Democrats In the Weat do not
take stock I the assumed theory that only l a
New York man ca carry the State ot New
York Certainly Mr Cleveland experience at
the Presidential ejection is not ot a char
ter t warrant the belief that he Is 1 certain t
earth Empire State tat felt 11 the West
that tkere baa boon too muohonesldedneM in
the sl ° uon of Presidential candidates and
that the itw of politIcal equulbium demand
tata little I more weight should b put into
the Western aide of tho sal
The Interview with me published In the
Detroit JSfeening Aero not long BOO expresses
the sentiments of many Western Democrats
toward Mr Cleveland In that Interview In
response to thequestion What does your
father think of Mr Cloteland I replied JQr
father never traded friends nor sold fO
Sir Clevelands tonds his Demooratio
friends that Is to the stanch and tried fiionda
of the Democratic party and t bemooratlo
principles I regarded In the West as not
above suspicion Western Democrats like
a stalwart adherence t the Democratic
principles for which the party has
whlc parr
8 long contended and are not sat
isflod with civil service reform cant In
Iou thereof Mr Cleveland has sacrificed my I
brother Blood is ticker than water I wlQ
aacrlflco him Cleveland if I oan Mr wU I
land will not get the next nomination I
I I oa help It Both for the reasons men
tioned In this Interview and those to come I
tonld toso
jtlck t every word1 laid In the interview in
the Detroit EetnlnyNewt Thoro has been no
KDudlatlon of that interview In any quarter
It reflects my own views and the views of
others I was denounoe for that interview
and I expect to b denounced for this one
but as Senator Jones said t me In
disputing h trouble there Is a > power I
behind me which I hat every con
fidence will take car of mo OTI for I
Cleveland hImself I have only kid fell
toward him personally but politically I an
tagonize him and In u I am only In ac
cord with many more men in the West who
may mor
have grown up In Iho Democratic party and
Imbibed Democratic principles almost with
their mothers JUk and who are not pleased
t see under the name ot those principles a
flabby nambypambyism which la neither
labbr whlo neiter
one thing nor the 1 other That I tho kernel
of the opposition to Cleveland I tho West
Cleveland was not nominated on Demo
Bratlo principles he was not elected by
Democratic votes and he doe not represent
the Ideas of the Democratic party With every
year of his administration ho baa eer
thor and further away from those ideas I he
Is renomlnatod and reelected he will be even
I lven
less a representative of the party under whose
colors he sails than he is at thepresent day
Ibtf west wants 1 possible a Western man
but above all It wants a man who Is a Demo
crat Mr Clevelands Administration has been
a personal one This Is indubitable as clearly
shown in mr brothers Interview published In
Tam SUN A t my fathers sentiments to

nothing to say further than personally hand

U may seem stan a that In Canada snarl
of th British empire a llnnels aJar
let t tax British roods while pormlttlmrtht

the cal This condition of things Ifi accounted
for by the fact that blah taritfhasfor nom <

affairs would need only a very slight oxten

That there Is a condition of preparedness for

a the result of past tariff leeMatlon In Cnn

mission of American products of all kinds If
by giving up access to her fisheries her forests
and her mines an equally free access would
b afforded t American markets and the
closest commercial relation be created with
the American people Canada would b ben
efited to a greater extent than by any other
elte t Iatr
Polls The advantage to the Unite States
would be that her trade would become continental

the entire 80000000 of people to the south of
