And Proclaims Its Opinion cf Grover Cleveland in Terms NcttoBer Mistaken. The following circular was extensive ly circulated at the" Chicago Convention by a large delegation from the labor organizations olJKew York State. A few .f their names were appended to the vrqi,Jar , as seen below : To the xtibmhcrz of the Democratic JVa ; v.-' tional Convention Greeting: We, the undersigned delegates, repre senting the labor sentiment of the cit ies New York, Utica, Syracuse, Roches ter and Buffalo, respectfully denre to call your attention to the following rea sons why Grover Cleveland shouFd not be nominated President by your conven tion. First He vetoed the bill abolishing contract child labor, in the charitable and reformatory institutions of the State, Second He signed the bill reducing pilotage fees. -20 per cent; a bill in the interest of foreign corporations. Third He approved the law compel ling working engineers to pay a tax of $2 a year for the enrichment of a pen sion fund of a liberally compensated body of public servants. Fourth He vetoed the 5 cent fare bill, a measure calculated to enable workingmen and their.families to reach the suburbs away from the tenement districts at' all hours. Fifth He signed the civil service bill, a measure c-lculated to encourage only college educated citizens to reach the public servica , thereby creating an aris tocracy of office holders. Sixth He appointed a man to admin ister the bureau of labor statistics of the State of New York who was an oppo nent to the reforms which the labors interests (whose influence had created the bureau) had desired and formulat ed. A man wholly unacquainted with its wants and indifferent to its welfare, and in this connection we cite as a con trast the fact that President Arthur has selected a laboring man for the position of chief of the National Labor Bureau , thus recognizing the interests which are to be benefited, and to whose efforts the creation of these bureaux is due. Seventh He vetoed the bill limiting car drivers' :hours of labor to twelve hours per day, thus confessing himself ignorant of the grave national question underlying the labor movement. Eighth He vetoed the mechanics' lien law, a bill designed to give labor the first lien, on a building in course of erection. Ninth He failed to advocate in his message to the legislature urging prompt and practical legislation to meet the wish of the people expressed at the polls last election against the system of convict contract labor which was de clared 'shall go" by a vote of 139,000 majority brought out by the State Exec utive Committee of the labor organiza tions, and the success of which was largely contributed by the members of this delegation. Tenth His appointment of a majori ty of the members of the railroad com mission of New York who were hostile to the interests which created that board, thus defeating the object for which the commission was established , and making it a tender to the corporate monopolies of the State. Finally we desire to say that the ob jections we raise against the nomination of Grover Cleveland are widespread and deep rooted among the labor organiza tions of the entire country, and that while we voice the sentiments of our immediate constituents, the labor organ izations hold our views in common, and in placing before the country a candi date for President by your convention , we desire he shall be free from objec tions, and one whom labor can support with enthusiasm.

Senator John J. hgails. Ten years ago if a visitor at the capi tol looked in on the United States senate he saw there a score of the representa-' tive intellects of the nation. Take from the chamber to-day six good heads and you have reduced it to the condition of Dyonisins' poppy garden in which his philosopher walked and leveled the tall stales. The rest make an average dead level. The political giants are mostly dead, or out of power , or standing for the presidency. Ingalls, of Kansas. Notably one of the rising men of the body is Ingalls, of Kansas. A quarter of a century ago he stepped out of Will iams college, and in his graduation year, a burning abolitionist already, leaving Massachusetts, he pitched hi3 tent in the Western territory in its storm and stress period. The friend of John Brown with convictions to serve fighting J his resolute way at the bar, on the stump, in the melees of border rufiianism and, when the need came, at the editorial desk, through all the fierce -epoch while Kansas was the advance battle ground of the coming national, conflict, he fairly won at last the best esteem of his state. Nearly a dozen years ago the mantle of Christian statesmanship, pulled from Pomeroy's shoulders, fell more worthily on his, and he has worn it here to worthier purposes ever sinee. An intellectual, keen man, alert with almost a French cleverness, he has stead ily moved up through a couple of terms in the senate as he moved up a dozen preceding years in the state. He is fer tile and aimble of wit, and is one of the very few men in the senate with a strong literary dash in his faculties. He has, furthermore, found the rare act of ad justing the conceits cf his fancy to extemporaneous rhetoric, and it has made him one of the most capable and feared debaters in the body. As a result presumably of some of his later forensic triumphsA the lecture agent, Pond, recently offered Senator Ingalls 200 a night to make engagements for the coming season an offer, it is said, which was. courteously declined. Coming through the senate doorway to where I yesterday encountered him in the lobby, the Kansas Senator said : 'I will talk with you as long as you like ; there is nothing I am more profoundly disinterested in than campaign oratory inside.'' "What do you fellows from as far west as Kansas think of the Republican nom inations at Chicago?" I asked. Kansas is sound on any republican ticket," Mr, Ingalls replied; but in my belief there has not been in the his tory of the party any such felicitous nomination as this one. The enthusiasm for it will become the greatest possible. East and west of the state of New York it makes everything certain. But we in the west are especially pleased. There is something in Blaine, an elan, a spirit, a vigor, to which the spirit of the west 'directly corresponds. The states west of the Mississippi have been waiting for him for years. There has never been such ardor for any candidate." "What about the election of your sen atonal successor, which occurs, I be lieve, next winter?" ' No formidable candidate against me has developed as yet. Pond's ros trum business might pay better than politics possibly, but I think I shall stand to succeed myself, the state of Kansas not objecting." Washington Letter in New-York Tribune. THE POLITICAL OUTLOOK. The Chicago Weekly News has the following to say about the work of the Democratic Convention, and serves to show how the Blaine bolter? enjoy their dilemma. - In the nomination of Gov. Cleveland the democratic party has undoubtedly made chaice of its most available man. And we use the word available in its correct sense, and not as a term of der ogation. We believe Mr. Cleveland will attract more votes than any other man who was at all likely to come be fore the convention at any time in its deliberations. He enjoys the confi dence of the thinking men of the coun in an unusual degree ; he is regarded as a prudent executive by the business classes : he has. shown in abundant measure his appreciation, of and adher ence to the doctrine that a public office is a public trust to be administered for the people, and not to be used for per sonal advantage ; he is admittedly hon est and efficient. We do not eare at this lime, however, to predict his election. Many a good horse has failed to win a race because of a bad start. And no enemy of Gov. Cleveland could desire a more unfortu nate 44go-off," as Gen. Grant once phrased it, than the democratic conven tion has given this tieket. The enforce ment of the unit rule against Tammany was right; it was legally and logically a necessity. Yet it was as a case at law where a jury votes a conviction under the inexorable force of evidence, bat contrary to the desire of every juror. It was a case where the judgment won a victory ever the emotions. The effect will be most unfortunate upon the can didates, and it is an effect which will not be destroyed by time. The case will get worse instead of better. Then, having disfranchised Tammany by the enforcement of the unit rule, it was im possible to prevent Grady and Cochran from talking. The spectacle was an unprecedented one. The platform wa3 vielded to men to criticise and denounce the leading candidate and now it hap pensthe nominee. And now Gov. Cleveland's opponents will hare to go no further than the convention hall to find arguments for .his defeat. They can say, and truthfully, here were all sufficient objections to Cleveland's elect Ian .uttered on the floor of Xlte .conven tion by regularly accredited delegates, and they passed unchallenged, SVhat more could they ask ? The platform 43 a monstrosity. As a literary product ion it would insure the instant dismissal oi any reporter of the Daily News who should present it as printer's copy. As a declaration of principles it is beneath contempt. Butler said enough in his way, to condemn it. But he did not say half as much as can be .said. Fin ally, the nomination of Hendricks as vice-president will weaken the ticket. Senator Joseph E. McDonald, and not Thomas A, Hendricks, was the man presented to the democratic convention by the state of Indiana. The Republicans of Indiana have nominated Congressman Calkins - for governor, and Eugene Bundy for lieutenant-governor. The ticket is a strong one and will win this fall. Mr. Bundy we have known from his early child-' hood and can say for him that he will make a lively e&nvass. Mr. Calkins has a national reputation as a man of ability and. can command as many votes in the Hoosier state as any man that could have been nominated. Al ma Tribune.

The following is the law in the state of Kansas in relation to paying bounty on wolf scalps and other animals ; Section 1. Tfaat the county com missioners of the several counties with in the state shall issue county warrants to the person killing to the amount ,of one dollar for every wolf, coyote, wild cat or fox, and five cents for each rab bit that shall be killed within - said count. . ' v ' ' Section 2. No person shall be enti tled to receive any bounty "as set forth in section one, without first making it appear by positive proof by affidavit in writing, filed by the. County Cleric, that the wolf, coyote, wild-cat, rabbit or fox was killed within the limits of the coun ty in which application is made." Section 3. Whenever bounty for any of the animals set forth in section one is awarded the person to whom it is awarded shall deliver the scalp of the animal containing both ears, to the County Clerk who shall cause the same to be destroyed. This act ehall not ap ply to counties having a total property valuation of less than Five Hundred Thousand Dollars. Section 4. This act shall not be en forced in any county until the same ha been ordered by the board of county commissioners of such county. At the last meeting of the wool-growers' association of Phillips county, the question of destruction of sheep by wolves was generally discussed, and it wa3 found that the loss of sheep from this cause was alarming. The associa tion appointed its secretary, Mr. Geo. W. Stinson, as a committee to bring the matter before our board of county com missioners at their next meeting . Above we publish the law. There are two constitutions regulating the law: First, as to the total amount of taxable property . Phillips county has a total property valuation of $l,115,C0O hence the only obstacle in the way is the action of the commissioners in or dering it in Phillips county. We would urge all of those who are raising sheep and all others who are interested in having the law enforced in Phillips county, to procure petitions praying the commissioners to enforce the law in this county. Such petitions would .. greatly aid Mr. Stinson in presenting the matter to them at their next meet ing. The law ought to be in fall force ar.d effect in this county with the exception . a3 to that providing bounty on rabbiti scalps.
