WORTH T OMLT OF COstMrT.
Of all the men conspicuous In affair <
in the Territory, the one toast worthy
of respect is S. H.Owings, the Territor
ial secretary. Appointed for reasons
outside of his own fitness for official
position, he has continued in office
through servility and trickery. He
has prostituted his portion in num
berless ways to his own ad vantage,
and is known, wherever he is well
known, as • scrub of very low and
dirty degree. This man. whose ser
vices are always ready for any job
against the public interest, who plays
the sycophant to the enemies of his
party, who is mistrusted by the pub
lic ami despised by those who really
know him for what be is,—this is the
man who attempts to slander a man
of decency and character. As a re
porter for this journal, Mr. Frszier
gave the public the facts concerning a
piece <»f petty official trickery by which
the secretary was making a petty per
sonal profit. The only reply to the
statement of fact is a tirade of malici
ous personal lies. Mr. Kra/.ier, who 1«
now the Territorial correspondent of
the P«»rtUnd Orrfoninn, is not in any
•ense characterized by the statements
of the Secretary. He is a man of fam
ily, of good business and professional
character, and of entirely reputable
anteccdants. Mr. Owings' lies will do
him no harm.

DEATH.
The death of Frederick 111 will not
be without Influence upon the polit
ical situation in tiermany, Russia.
France or Austria. In every one of
these countries the war party will be
atrvngthened and the peace party
thrown upon the defensive. It is said
that William 11, the new emperor,
is ha ty, headstrong ami eager for
military glory. In education and tem
perament he Is a soldier, and Ids great
est joys are the joys of the camp. Ills

The first effect of the change of rul

is said to be Inclined to follow the ad
vice of the aged chancellor unquesti.ui

hope that peace wdl continue as long
as Bismarck live<, for the efforts of
that state-man will certainly lie pat
forth to prevent war. White this is

As the dafcgatsa to the Republican
national convention gather at Chicago
it become wort and more evident that
they have not forgotten the name of
Bbtee. Despite the organised efforts
to boom other candidates, the real
party leader is talked of in the hotels,
on the streets and wherever the dele
gate* congregate. Whenever two Re
publicans from different parts of the
country meet they straightway com
mence a discussion as to whether
Blaine would accept a unanimous
nomination, and the conclusion usual
ly reached is that be could not help
doing so. It is evident that if the
slightest intimation wert given that
Rune had reconsiderwd his determin-
ation not to be a candidate, he would
be nominated on the first baCot with
such an outburst of enthusiasm as no
national convention has ever wit
nessed. Even as it is, Mr. Blaine's
nomination is not by any means im
possible. The Pacific Coast delega
tion demands it as vehemently as it
demanded it tour years ago. It was
California, Nevada and Oregon that
secured his nomination then, and they
are fully as determined to secure it
now.
The present situation may wall be
described as chaotic, the only tning
that is clear and well defined being
the strong undercurrent for Blaine.
! It is probable that more candidate*
will be voted for on the first ballot than
have ever been voted for on a single
ballot in any national political con
vention. |.\mongthe name* which will
thu* be rabmitiad to the convention are
those of many of the most ill us trie us
leaders of the Republican party, as
well aa a few whose mention in con
nection with the presidency is aston
ishing. Votes will be cast for Sher
man, • •resham. Harrison, Alger, Alli
son, Busk, I'helps, Hawley, Depew,
and Ingalls, and, unless another per
emptory letter is received from Blaine
before the balloting commences, there
will be a large number of vote* cast for
him. It is possible that scattering
votes will be cast for some of the other
gentlemen who have been spoken of
as possible presidents.
The first ballot, however, will be of
little significance except as it indicates
the relative standing of the leading
candidates. Sherman will unquestion
ably have the largest vote. His suit
porters claim that be will have con
siderably more than three hundred,
and. although this claim may be ex
cessive, it is probable that he will not
fall far below that number, (iresham
will have the next largest vote. His
supporters, however, do not put their
claims into figures and it is impossi
ble to predict with accuracy what his
initial strength will be. Harrison,
Alger and Allison will come next, their
relative order depending entirely upon
the action of the New York delega
tion. Depew will also have a very
flattering support. Busk will have
the solid vote of Wisconsin, Phelps
that of New Jersey and Hawley
probably that of Connecticut. It is
not unlikely tliat Ingalls will have the
solid vote of Kansas and it is possible
that he will secure some scattering
votes from the south. It is certain
that unless something occurs to make
a radical change in the situation no
body will get the nomination on the
first ballot.
The secom 1 ballot will probably show
little change from the first, for even
tha states which expect to give their
favorites only complimentary votes
will scarcely de-ert them »o soon. The
third ballot will show a more marked
change and will lie extremely signifi
rant as showing the drift of the con
vention. If a nomination is made at
an early stage in the voting, it will
probably lie on this ballet or the next.
If the— are pa—ed without a nomina
tion. however.it is altogether probable
that the delegates will settle down to
a lon# succession of ballots during
which attempts will lie made to spring
the names of a number of dark horse-.
Among thow who tuay receive the
nomination at this stage of the pro
ceedings are Foraker and McKmley of
Ohio, I.inroln and I'ulloni of Illinois,
I'orterof Indiana, and Iliscock and
Miller of New York. It must I* said,
however, that the probability of a
stampede being made to any of these
is very slight, it lieing more likely that,
if n me of the leading .animates se
cure the nomination on one of the
early ball >ts. a break will lie made to
Blaine. Indeed, if ten ballots pass
without any material change in the
relative strength of the leading candi
date*. the nomination of the Maine
«tate-nian will lie almost certain.
The choice of the convention of a
candidate for the vice presidency will,
of course, depend materially on the
nomination for president. If a western
man is nominated for president, the
candidate for vice president will prolia
bly I* Morton. Miiler or Iliscock of
N#w York. I'hrljvs of Sew Jersey.
Hawlev of Connecticut or Beaver of
Pennsylvania. If the first place is
given to an eastern man. the second
place will goto Alger. Harrison, Porter,
Foraker or McKinler.
The work framing a platform will
ba comparatively easy. On this point
there w II Is- no contest. On all tha
grrat questions of the day the Kepnb-
I ail party is united. There will t« a
ringing declaration in favor of tha pro
tecaon at American industries and a
pledge that if the Republican party is
restored to p *cr i; will reform and
revi-c the tariff, keep ng constantly in
view the great protective principle
There will be a denunciation of the
ti-t.ero treat< il l an axprc-<ion of
disapproval of the t'.nan ixl policy of
Uie adm::>is-r't.-n. The well known
po-ition of the Kc|>uhiican party on
other points « il I* stale ! anew and
the points upon whi, h it lia«es its ap
peal for the suffrage- of the people will
be indc a ted. * H course, however, the
important plank of the platform wdl
I*- that relating to the tariff and it will
be adopted without discussion. On
thi- q'lestion the party is a unit.

-*€ ifi 1 nwmtrn bm win W"iw
to rapport the rmatataHtnlwafi
job; and there is very fittie doubt in
the minds of those who hare watched
this project that they have been se
cured by corrupt meana. Thisisplain
plain speech. So man can have
an bonest rootirs in voting
for such a proposition as thst
involved in this outrageous job. The
men who own the property and who
pay the taxes. protest against the de
•tructKra of the street. The non
resident manager of a non
resident corporation is anxious
for it. In this situation what is the
reasonable inference in the case of
roiuu-Saen who stand in support of
the scheme? There can be but one,
and it is such as brands these couaci!-
men as corruptand infamon*.
This is not the only job in which the
present council, or at least certain
members of it (men who have little or
no stake in the community and who
should never hare been trusted with
pubiie duties) haveshowa the cloven
foot It seems to be their purpose to
job out every public interest, leaving
nothing for succeeding councils to do.
The city is disgraced as well as injured
by such a government.
It is urged as an excuse by those
who have need of an excuse, that a
cable road on Front street will, after
awhile, be a public necessity. This we
maintain is false and a mere pretext.
Certainly a road is not a necessity at
thU time, and if it should in future be
a necessity there will be time to pro
vide for it. Let the future take care
of the future. If in time there should
be the great need of a road
now so vehemently predicted, then
the franchise will be of great value,
and the city will be able to sell it for a
large sum. A quarter of a million
dollars would not be an excessive price
for a privilege as valuable as a Front
street railway franchise five year*
from now.
The truth is that the Council, or cer
tain members favorable to the Front
street job. are not considering the
public interest at all but on the con
trary are thinking only of profit to
themselves. This is very plain but
nothing else fits the situation.
A tVONDEBFI'L; PLANK.
The Democratic national platform
is full of false claims and unsupported
assertions. It is either equivocal or
untruthful in every line. The work
men who framed it had a difficult task
and scant material to work with. They
were called upon to construct a plat
form which would satisfy one-half of
a badly divided party, while it would
deceive the other half. It must de
clare for free trade without offending
the protectionists. It must indorse
the administration without depriving
the party of the support of those who
are opposed to its policy. It must be
made broad enough to ai cc mod ate
such avowed free traders as Mills,
Scott and Carlisle and to have a cor
ner remaining for Samuel J. Randall,
whom the aforesaid Mills .Scott and Car
lisle have lieen industriously reading
out of the party for the past few weeks,
but who will be urgently invited to *
seat on the platform about a month or
six weeks before the election. The
problem was an intricate one, and it is
no wonder that the solution offered is
not very satisfactory.
The crowing absurdity of the plat
form is the tariff plank. This was the
plank over which the builders of the
pedestal upon which Cirover Cleveland
has been mounted quarrelled roost
vigorously. With such free traders as
Wattcrson and Scott ar.d such protec
tionsts as Gorman and Cooper on the
committee on resolutions, it is not
strange that there should have Veen
marked differences of opinion as to
how i iear a declaration the free traders
would demand and In w much decep
tion the protectionists could reason
ably be expected to stand. After the
wrangling which the solution of thesa
problems required, a plank was in
serted in the platform which was
reasonably satisfactory to all the tnem
bers of the committee except Mr
Cooper, of New York, un 1 he indicated
his displeasure by refusing to have
anything to do with either the plank
or the platform of which it is a part.
What kind of a plank is that which
loth Watterson and (iorman declare
to lie satisfactory T It is the most ex
traordinary declaration ever mule by
a national political party. It makes
the evasiveness of the evasive j latform
of IHM appear plain, blunt and direct
by contrast. The first declaration is
that the "Democratic party reaffirms
the platform a lopted by it- represen
tative- in the convention of lvM," but
as noliody ha- yet be?n able to tell
what the Democratic tarirt plank of
I*-t meant, the new plank continues,
"and indorse- the views expres-cd by
l're-ident < kvelan l in his last annual
me—age to congress v the corre< t in
terpretation of that platform upon tlie
question of tariff reduction." As if
this did not make the meaning of the
plank sufficiently donbtful. it contains
an additional declaration indorsing
the "efforts of our Democratic repre
sentatives in congress to secure a re
duction of exce-sive taxation." Fur
ther along in the -erics of resolutions
there i- a specific ind< rsement of the
Mdl- bill now in the house of
representatives.
l-u h, then, i- the official statement
of the Democratic attitude in regard
to the tariff. First, the party reaffirms
the delcaration of I*4, whi h did not
mean anything at all. or, rather, which
was so adaptable in its nature that ii
I. ould It made to mean anything that
i the individual Democrat wished it to
, mean. Next. President Cleveland's
I n-e-sajre is declare! to be a correct in
terpretation of this declaration. As
President Cleveland'* message was
nothing but a weak argument against
the American system of protection,
however, thi- statement mn.-t mean
that tht declaration of ls--t was really
f»r free tra 'e. l-t-t ev ine» the indorse
ment of the M.l's Will, which is as
I road a departure from the recommen
dations of the president's message as
i: is from -ownd principles of political

TBI LIBKAKI.
The ladies of Seattle have taken up
on themselves the good wopk of mak
ing a public library. They have organ
ised an associated, formed a pl*n up
on the best models and arranged fpr
library rooms. And now they need
money to carry on the work. They
ought to have fifteen thousand dollars;
and ten thousand is an absolute neces
sity for a beginning. There ought to
be no difficulty ia raising this money.
The men, who have not been called up
on to take any part in the labors of
organisation, cannot do less than to
supply the needed funds, and in doing
thii they will have the easiest part in
the enterprise. The money ought to
be given cheerfully and without delay,
and we believe that it will be. We
could name ten men who could give
SSOO each and never miss it—and they
ought to give it. We could name
twenty more who could give J250 each
and never miss it—and they ought
to give it. There are fifty who
could and who should give 1100 each,
and a multitude who could and who
should give SSO each. There ought
not to be any hanging back in this
matter. The ladies, having made the
start and perfected the plan, ought
not to have any "drumming*' to do to
make the men perform a plain and
simple duty i ___^^___
Wealthy Cslsn* Mew.
There are probably over one hun
dred colored men in Washington who
are worth over s2s,oooeach, fifty worth
SIO,OOO each and nearly one thousand
who pay taxes on SSOOO. George W.
Williams, ex-member of the Ohio As
sembly, and author of a history of the
colored race, Is said to be worth $40,-
000. Fred. Douglas has $300,000. He
now owns a house opposite Washing
ton, formerly owned by a man who so
hated the blacks that he refused
to sell anything to one of them.
John F. Cooke, who, until recently,
has been tax collector of the Dis
trict of Columbia, himself pavs taxes
now on $250,000. John M. Langston,
formerly United States minister to
Hayti, is reputed to be worth $75,000.
John Lynch, of Mississippi, who was
the temporary chairman of the Chi
cago convention in 1.484, is very
wealthy and own* a fine plantation in
Mississippi. Ex-Congressman Smalls,
who is now contesting the seat unlaw
fully held by Col. Elliott, has also accu
mulated quite a fortune. Dr. Gloster.
who died a few years ago, left $1,000,-
000; the wealth of his son-in-law was
e timated at $150,000. John X. I,ewis,
of Boston, makes the c'othes of
the Beacon hill dudes and does a
yearly business, it is said, of over a
million dollars. He was once a slave,
and. ragged and barefooted, followed
Sherman and bis troops in their march
to the sea. Cint innati has a colored
furniture dealer whose check is good
any day for $25,000. although thirty
vears ago he was a Kentucky slave.
The late Robert Gordon, of Cincin
nati. owned a large number of four
story residences at the time of his
death. These and other facts whieh
might be cited tend to disprove rhe
generally accepted notion that colored
l>eople have no idea of thrift.
Squelching a Delegate.
Patrick A. Calling, the "high muek
a-uiurk" of Massachusetts Democracy,
is Mill to I* a particularly able presid
ing officer of a political convention, in
proof of which it is tol.l that some
vears ago he *a> presiding orer. a
l>en>ocratic convention in Massachu
setts in which was an Irish delegate
from his own end of Boston, the pro
prietor of half a dozen saloons and a
thick, old-fa-hioned brogue. He was
very anxious for some reason to get
the tloor, and jumped up every time
he thought he saw a chance for it, un
til he had become a nuisance to the
whole convention. At last, just as a
committee was about to report, he
jumped up again right in front.
"Mr. Pre>ident," ne shouted.
"Mr. President." Collin* rapi>ed
sternly with hi* gavel, but did not
otherwise recognize him. "Mr. Presi
dent," he continued, "Mr. President."
Again Collins rapped vigorously, this
time turning his keen eyes upon the
obstreperous delegate with awithering
glance. Hut instead of withering it so
exasperated the delegate that he shook
his tist at the presiding officer and
veiled: "You, Pat Collins, I want the
nure!" Collins leaned right over the
table at that. shook his gavel at the
disturber and quietly but fiercely said :
"Sit down, you terrier." The "terrier"
promptly took his seat, while the con
vention howled with delight.
Doe* Your Left Bar Itcb?
[Chicago Herald.
The latest auricular novelty of fash
ionable society appears to be the itch
ing ear. When a young lady feels her
riirht ear itch she immediately real
izes that Adolphus is thinking loving
ly about her, but if her left ear itches
she is equally sure that Adolphus is
shaking slightingly of her to some
hated, out, perhaps, more beautiful
rival.
" It is a pity to kill such a nice little
theory," sani an aged and well in
formed physician. " but the truth is
that when a young woman's ear itches
she has a perfect nest of animalcule
in her ear which threatens to destroy
that beautiful adornment of her face.
This peculiarly aggravating insect has
but recently l>een discovered by medi
cal science, and it comes from the
genus cnie*. That they find their ori
gin in the waxv accumulations in the
ear is an undoubted fact, and this
ought to teach the young ladies a bet
ter idea of {«Tsonaf cleanliness,
" Take t..y word for it." said the old
physician. " itching ears have nothing
to do »ith love or lovers, and are not
produced by the continuous use of
the t. lephone."
" Show me the girl who has roman
tically :t hing car*." said the verier
aide cynic, "and I will showyouadel
