i V : THE Klff ERl'lUSE, WEDNESDAY; JULY 24. 1889- , Jbc-Gov. 'FoeTEB Is tow doiDg what good be can araeng the Indian tribes on i the frontier. The authorities in Cincinnati have a hard time of It to compel the law-breakers 'to respect the Sabbath. The Auditor of Warren county has is- -Bued too many orders on the Treasurer and used the money to cancel private ob ligations, lie is now in Canada. ! VlCK-rBBSlDBNT Hutr-EH, of the late Fidelity bank, of Cincinnati, who is now serving a term o! ten years in the pent tentlary at Columbus, has petitioned Pres. ident Harrleon for a pardon. The Democratic press docj not appear to settle upon anyone for a nominee for , Governor. Campbell, ot Duller, appears to be the fuvorile of a portion of tbe ' southern part of the State, but still he lack the proper endorsement to become a leader. Even the moral Joseph Zimmer man, of Sandusky county, is thinking of dropping the Senato'iul race and looking for Gubernatorial honors. - The party : wants to be sure and not select a tax de linquent this time. Mns. Habrison complains that the exec utive mansion has become a retreat for office seekers, and tbe domestic circle of the President's family has become dis turbed. We have claimed, lor some time past, that the White House should be used for an office and the Government should provide the President with a private resi dence. A building adequate for an exec utive office and mansion eighty-nine years go, when we only enumerated three and a half .millions of people, it can hardly be expected would meet the demands now. We hope that Congress will attend to the matter at the coming session and appro prlate hind for tbe erection of a mansion in keeping with the times and; then the executive can enjoy that quietness out of business hours which he 1 Justly entitled to. G eb xxal Joes Biattt, of Columbus, appears to be pursuing a very etrange course toward the party to whom he is indebted for all of hi political honor. Every change which take place in an ad ministration new men usually take the , mas of government, and they have plant already matured to be enforced Just as toon as they are seated. These plan have been decided upon after mature delibera tion, and like every other business are sub ject to trial It may prove to be Just the plan to govern the country In Outclass shape, and they may prove detrimental or an entire failure, although the executive may have acted In tbe best ol faith. Gen eral Beattydoes not appear to be willing to permit an executive to frame opinions of hi own. If be departs from the line of policy that he (Beatty) advocates they at once become of no benefit to the coun try whatever. In electing men to office we must not expect this. They are en titled to their own ideas; and when we have reason to believe that tbe steps are honestly taken, we should move slow to censure and await patiently for good re suits, and not open np rebellion in our ranks. Tbe acts of one Individual should not effect tbe principles of a party. The General has ibown hi weakness In the past few years by his acts towards the Re publican party, and If the Democratic party has any use fur him we will ask them to take him off our hands. Beatty, the kicker, is excused. Mr. Horr Respectfully Declines, "East Saoikaw, Mich, July 10. lion. William F. Wharton, Acting Secre tary of State, Washington : Dear Sir: Your notice ot my appoint mcnt by the President of the United State a Consul at Valparaiso, Chili, Is Just re ceived. I most respectfully decline to ac cept the position. Yoors most truly, R. G. Hour." Mr. Horr ha shown hi good sense in ileclinlng to fill soy such a minor post. tion tion. The salary is only three thou sand dollars, and it could not be expected that a man of hi standing would leave his home and business to go to the land of volcanoes and earthquake for the small sum of money offered. He is to be congratulated upon tbe wise move he made in declining it at once. Tbe standing Mr. Horr baa achieved with hi party warranted President Harrison in tendering blm one of the first-class ap- , pointment. Our Dakota Letter. Gbaxd Rapids, K. Dai, July 13, 1889. Cditar of the iHTiirxin:- Talmage said in a recent sermon, "My ' dear madam, what do you mean by going bout the world with diaenheartmeotsf la not the stpply of gloom and trouble and misiortone enough to meet the de mand without your running a factory of spike and pin t Why should yon plant black and blue in the world where God so seldom plants itr Etc, etc. Now a tense oi this in my heart all these days Is my reason for this delay in writing a letter. Were I the possessor of a home on the banks of the Hudson, whose bean- . tie are sung by the poet, described by tbe tourist and ever relished by a restless, feverish public; or during these sultry July days, were I among the many who re resting and recuperating "Among (he , Height" in the Yosemite valley, or ' enjoying the picturesque scenery at our own Yellowstone Park; were I camping at some lake-aide retreat where the gentle lapping of the waves on the shore would soothe the tired nerves and cool tlie lever- brow with a delicious sense of peace and rest; In fact were I in almost any other place than on this sun-scorched and drouth-stricken prairie, I might be auie to write you something interesting. I have put it off from day to day until they have dragged themselves into weeks, hoping that tbe morrow would bring tbe bounti- ful rains so long desired, but our worst fears are realized, ud should they come now, they would be too late to save tbe crops and could only benefit the pasturaae (which is very short) and meadows, and perhaps bring on late sown millet and potatoes. If any of your readers imagine they could write an interesting article as re freshing as the sight of "scarlot and pink flowers," with the mercury at 102 and a hot wind blowing from the south, I extend to tbem a cordial invitation to come here. Sit at the desk as now am and look out upon tbe parched ground, brown and bare in places, fairly glistening under the scorching sunlight. See the fields and fields of dying and dead grain, remembering the expenso it has been to put it in, and the hopes it has blasted by its death. Look where the meadow hay was wont to wave in billow of darkest green, standing three feet high, and see tbe short, yellow-fringed sickly grass. Beyond this I see Charlie driving the herd to the river for water, and the thought is forced upon mjf mind, where will the winter's feed, with to little bay and straw, come from ? I see more "black and blue" than "scarlet and pink." I think tbe failure of the crop this season is the more of a disappointment on account of 'he high hopes entertained universally by the people here of an unusually prosperous season. Wheat was sure to be firm in price. After the heavy rain ot lost summer, the fall was very dry, and very little snow during the winter. The spring wa dry and very windy, though the wind did not create the havoc here that they did in the Red River valley, where one friend aaid he put in teed on the tame ground four times, and Dalrymple, the famous wheat raiser, re seeded 10,000 acres; but we bad it windy enough to dry the soil out, and have only had two or three light shower dnee. Naturally people looked for rain in Jane and July, which are really the rain most essential, but we are atill looking. We do not doubt the wisdom of our Creator, but could we have shared the "surplus moisture" of the;mountainou district of Pennsylvania, what Joy it would have brought to a deserving people here, and perhaps averted that most ter rible of calamities. Fortunately for us we are In a grazing district not equaled by any other part of the county, but tbe outlook for a winter's supply Is anything but bright It U id that all sign fall in a dry time, and I can verify it. Cloud in the east and In the west, to the north and to the south of us, but they would be scattered by a closely following wind, or be blown twlftly over. Mooni would wax and wane without a sprinkle of rain. All the whim sad signs of my grand, father's days, which I considered infalli ble In Ohio, fail In this drouth. A picnic was beld in the grove on the river bank at Grand Rapid, July 4th, which was largely attended by people from all parts of the county. Good speeches, good music and a good dinner made, the day pass very pleasantly. For a time tbe drouth and its discouragements were forgotten, and all gave themselves up to the enjoyment of tbe day. I heard srveral replies to the question "How is your wheat looking T" One man said "My name is Dennis;" another, "My goose is cooked and a third, "I'm euchred, that's all." Could a foreigner have told how their wheat looked? I inferred from their manner that their wheat wu poor. In answer to the queries, "am I sick V Ye; heart lick. And yet we ought to be grateful that we have suffered no greater loss than a crop, when so many direful calamltie are befalling other places. With life and health what may not await us in the future t It is too dry and windy even for the imagination to soar with safety. It I don't contract tome spinal disease or become "moon-eyed" from watching overhead to tee which way the clouds are going, I'll write soon again. Blanche. Washington Letter. (From oar Regular Compooletit. Washington, July 19, 1889. The President returned to Washington Wednesday, held a cabinet meeting on Thursday beside transacting a consider able amount of other business, and this afternoon or to-morrow be will go to Deer Park again, and the chance are that Washington will see him no more for some weeks, be having almost decided to bold tbe few cabinet meetings that will be necessary between now and September at Deer Perk. He finds that be can do a great deal more work at Deer Park than in the White House. Mra Harrison came with the President. She is not feeling very well and thought the trip might benefit ber, and beside she wanted to look after tome domestic matters. She returns to Deer Park with the President Pension Commissioner Tanner baa de cided to reorganize the medical division of hit office. Several medical examiner who were democrat were dismissed this week and more are to follow shortly. It to neediest to say that their successors will in every cue be good republicans There is do mugwumpery about Com missi oner Tanner. Attorney General Miller will keep house daring tbe remainder of bit term. He has leased a residence next door to one recently! leased by Chief Justice Fuller. .; JudceTvner. law officer ot the Post Office Department has been quite ill for some days. He has been taken to Deer Park by order of hi physician. Hon. W.B. Richie, of Lima, Ohio, who was in Washington this week, is a demo crt.t but he openly acknowledges his fear of Foraker In the coming gubernatorial . election, and he doet not stop there. He says that if Foraker is elected he will be tbe republican candidate for President in 1802. It is very kind of this gentleman to save tbe republican oarty the trouble of selecting Its candidate in 1893. It's rather eariv to be making predictions, but from the wav things look at this time, tbe name of the republican candidate in 1802 will be Banjamin Harrison. Tbe Ohio republican association held an enthusiastic Foraker ratification meet ing this week. Sixth Auditor Coulter, the man who recently demanded the re signation of every democratic chief of divlsoni in hit office, was the speaker that pleased the "boys" most. Secietary Noble says that all tne talk about the cattle companies making a lease with the Cherokee Indians and prevent ing the government from opening the Cherokee strip for settlement, is tbe veriest bosh. The attempt on the part ol Secretary Blaine's enemies to mak him out such a sick msn that be must resign proved as big a failure as it predecessors of the same kind. These absurd rumors are be coming monotonous. . , Secretary Windom will spend his vaca tion at Deer Park in order to be where the President can easily cousult him about important financial matters while pre paring his message to Congress.
