That arch enemy of Mr. Cleveland, the Sun, asgistiDg the Philadelphia Press ingeniously traces down by the reductio ad absurdum proceBB, the origin of "the third term nonsense" toacoterie of asses who congregate under the name and style of the New York Reform Club. They are guilty, argue3 the Sun, tince no one else is sufficiently silly. Sajs the Sun: i In two recent proclamations from the White Hoass, Sir. Cleveland has of fered his services to the peop'e as the figurehead of a canee vaguely described by him as that of ''sound money and a Bate currency." For several weeks it has seemed likely that these mani festoes had a direct, if subterranean, connection with certain cautious yet systematic efforts to test public opinion on the question of a third term. Tae obfervant and ingenious corres pondent in New York of the Philadel phia Press has been trying to trace this connection, by following up to their probitb'.e source the little rivulets of bird-term sentiment which now trickle across the editorial pages of the Cuckoo newspapers of the more reckless sort. The task is worth the trouble. Nothing that increases our knowledge of the psychology of cu ckooism is wiihout value eg material for the political history of these times. : In the first place, the Press' corres pondent acquits Co!. Dan Lamont ot any part or interest in the third-term noDBense. A man "who has had very intimate, relations with Mr. Cleveland's administration," and who has been ap proaching some of the editors m west ern New York on the subject of a third term for Mr. Cleveland, admits that the matter has been mentioned to Lamont, That astute person "replied instantly that it was useless to attempt to re kindle third-term sentiment. Mr. Cleveland, in his opinion, would not listen to fMicb a suggestion. If there seemed to be any serious growth of the third-term plan, Mr. Cleveland would take, in bis own way, steps to put an end to it." Now, while it is undoubtedly true that Col. Lamont would talk that way, at the present stage of the game, if he were at the very bottom of a third-term movement, we do not believe that this very adroit and sensible politician is revolving any euch idea, even in the in nermost machinery of his able mind. Mr. Cleveland as a statesman is in a pe culiar sense the creation of Col Dan Lamonl's genius. When Mr. Cleveland has followed the Colonel's advice in political matters, he has generally pro filed by his docility. When he has chosen to go it. alone, he his frequent ly come to grief, nearly evervbody un derstands this except Mr. Cleveland himself; and nobody understands it better than Col. Lamont. His own fu Jure fame as the creator and manager of an historical personage of broad dimensions is now involved in the task of getting bis large friend successfully through the next twenty-two months without any irremediable break, and then landing bim intact in dignified le- tirement. Col. Lamont has no con Ceivable motive for assisting to wind up Mr. Cleveland's public career with an inglorious and . ridiculous attempt to erab an honor which Washington re fused, and which has been within the reach of no president since Washing ton. It would be as. if a sculptor should deliberately smash his own masterpiece when it was nearly com pleted and almost ready for exhibition. : Clearly, it is not Dan Lamont. And yet somebody is now industriously at work sowing in fertile Cuckoo soil the aeed-thought that the financial emer gency and the preservation of our credit in Europe may justify a departure next year from the no-third-term principle and compel the nomination of the Hon. Grover Cleveland as the oniy American statesman able to handle the emer gency.and keep us right in the credit books of the European bankers ! If it is not Col. Lamont, who is it? We cannot say thit the correspondent of the Philadelphia Press has fully an swered this question. The result of his invfstigat'ons up to date'seems to be that the fountain bead of third term eenthnf nt is in "a email group in the New York Hcforin Club." He names no names. There is some plausibility in this idea, for much that has been mischievous in Mr. Cleve land's political leadership came from that quarter. Not a little that ha? been disastrous to Democracy has orig inated in a small group in the New York Reform Club. If anv circle or syndicate of powerful thinkers is cap able of evolving the idea that the fu ture of American institutions depends upon the continued presence of Mr. Cleveland in the Executive Mansion, this "small group in the New York Re form Club" is up to the job. s BURNING QUESTION ATTUCSON. Tucson is torn asunder over an al leged utterance by- Rev. David R. Francis in an opera house of that city last Sunday night, A part of the popu lation say that the reverend gentle man declared that "Tacson ought to be wiped off the face of the earth." Others deny that such recommendation waB made. Both sides have gone into print about it and affidavits and counter affi davits cumber the columns of the news papers cf Tucson. The main question seems to have been quite overlooked. It may be as sumed to get at the foundation of the matter that the preacher said so. ShouH Tucson be wiped ' off the face of the earth? If so the inhabitants had better begin to make other improvements than- Ikying sidewalks. If on the other hand Tucson still deserves a position on earth so proudly and honor ably maintained through 300 years it really makes no difference what the reverend gentleman said. ' Now that the flower festivals which have been raging in various California towns since May Day have closed, the world can resume its wonted course around the sun. Newspapers, big and little, have run largely to flower festiv als during the last three weeks and their pages have been mainly orna mented by portraits of scores upon scores of Queens of Festivals crowned by popular election. The queens were pre sumably chosen with reference to their superior beauty. Now that the festivals are over and the queens deposed and no longer in power we may observe with safety and in truth that either the newspaper artists are inferior or that feminine beauty is at a low ebb in California. In order that next year's festivals may lack nothing of success California shou-d import her queens from Phoenix. Since Don M. Dickinson made his "jingo" speech at Detroit the Spring field Republican expresses surprise that somebody has not nominated him for president on some such platform as this: "A fight, and an army and navy for a fight." The Republican intends this for sarcasm, but it would be a much more popular platform than the Cleveland-Greaham platfoim of sur render and hauling down the American flag. " Of a project to form a Southwestern Press Association, the Albuquerque Citizen says: The suggestion of the Democrat is good that the newspaper men of New Mexico and Arizona meet in this city during the Territorial Fair and organize the Southwestern Press club. Nearly all the papers of the two territories can be represented at that time. Justice Field has been on the supreme bench 32 years, and says he has no intention of resigning. Not withstanding his advanced age he feels as strong as he did 10 years ago, and claims that he cm discharge his official duties as well. The St. Louis Republic beat the Chi cago papers on the Laughlin-Harvey debate. The Republic had a full report of the rejoinders the next morning, while the Chicago papers did not print them until Sunday morning. In a recent sermon addressed to bicy clists a clergyman said: "Along the shining streets of gold I seem to see a company clad in white and riding on golden wheels." Wouldn't wings be preferable even to the bicycle? A bill has passed the Dominion par liament abolishing mileage for mem bers. Railroad passes will have a" high er value for members living far from the seat of government. Since the Pingree plan has gone into operation in so many of the eastern towns the customary greeting is: "Have you got your potatoees planted yet?"
