now stands away from the fleshpots

INCONSISTENT DENUNCIATIONS
Patersou Daily Guardian
The New York Tribune denounces
President Cleveland for turning out all
the Republican office holders The
Sun denounces him for keeping them
in The World denounces him for
both Is it not perfectly clear that de
nunciation is the main tiling with all

would make no difference to journals
which are agin him for political and
personal reasons
TKA1TOKS TO TIIE REPUBLIC
Richmond Dlsiteli
It is a harsh word but is it not true
that the northern Republican leaders
are traitors to the republic In order
to gain or retain the offices of the gov
ernment they are willing to keep the
country iu a state of unrest and turmoil
from one years end io another
Twenty two years after the war be
tween the States ended they are found
pummeling the defunct Southern Con
federacy and striving to perpetuate a
solid South as a means of perpetuating
a solid North

TIIE TRUE DEMOCRATIC TOLICY
Philadelphia Record
Itis better to keep up the whisky
tax to pay the soldiers pensions and
tobacco tax to pay the interest on the
war debt By so doing the tax on the
ntcessaries of living and on the crude
materials out of which we make metals
cloths medicines and the like may be
lessened and the lot of poor men and
workingmen be made comfortable
That Is the Cleveland policy and it is
the true Democratic policy

half as much as Southern negroes

AN OHIO TEST
Boston Herald
The Columbus O Journal says that
the returning of the rebel Hags is a
lest question of patriotism iu Ohio
Then we fear Ohio must be in a bad
way But our impression is that the
people of Ohio are all patriotic or so
nearly all that it is not worth while to
make note of those who are the excep
tions This flag business Is really the
test of the IacK of intelligence or the
extent of prejudice that remains among
her people There may be still some
left who are influenced by it but for
the credit of the State we hope they
are not mauy in number
THE EHERMAN FOKAKER FIGHT
St Louis Republican
John Shermans supporters in Ohio
are convinced to n moral certainty
that Foraker is in alliance with Blaiue
and there support of him is on this ac
count far from enthusiastic Shermans
persistence in forcing the Presidential
fight into the State Convention makes
it impossible to keep it out of the State
campaign and there is much suppress
ed ill feeling betweeu the Sherman
and Foraker factions Itis understood
ou both sides that if Foraker could be
elected by an increased majority Sher
mans chances of controlling the dele
gation next year would not be worth
considering
HE WAS FOOLING THEM
Philadelphia Record
When Mr Randall wasa candidate
for Speaker toucceed M C Kerr of
Indiana ho wrote a letter to the Gal

purpose of quieting the suspicions of

soundness on the tariff question In
that letter he was somewhat vague
and In general language he expressed
himself Iu favor of a change of policy

CLEVELAND AND HILL

nomination Without the consent and
approval of President Cleveland then
he wrote very good sense But has it

FEDERAL AID IS NOT NEEDED
Courier Journal
That Federal aid is not needed for
the blacks is freshly shown by the
speech upon 8tate a flairs wliichjGJjy
Lowry of Mississippi delivered at
Vicksburg last week Mississippi is
oue of the three Southern States in
which the negro imputation exceeds
the white the figures for 1880 belog
650291 of the former to 47939S dr the
latter and if thelilair Bill were needed
for any State it would be needed for
Mississippi But Gov Lowry o speecli
shows again as the reports of superin
tendents of- education have shown
before that Mississippi is able to edu
catcher children black as well as
white without turning beggar 0ur
common schools he said are in a
far better condition than they have
been hitherto and I may safely assert
that there is uot a boy or girl while or
black that niay not get a a fair
tion by availing themselves of schools
convenient to them for if is the object
of the law making power of the State
to so establish the schools that every
child can be reached I may say in
this connection too that under the
system adopted by the present State
Superintendent we have a better class
of teachers than heretofore The
Governor reported the higher institu
tions of learning also in a favorable
condition saying of the oue for colored
youths The Alcorn College for col
ored boys is prosperous and succeeding
admirably Its President and faculty
are working in harmony together aud
the trustees who are composed In the
main of the citizens in the vicinity

Instead of giving the Government
