ATK JOITI.NAI,, WKDNKSDA Y, OCTOBEB 7, 1891.
(Hatrman $ Journal. WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 7, 1891. Lox'Isiana is a congenial place for prize-fighters as wcll ns lottery nian agers. One McCarthy, i iiilicted for belog in a prize-light, was toqultted at New Orleans last weck, tlu jury not leaviug their seats. WHILE pcople in New England werc walking about in their shirl-slecvcs on aecount of the heat, lait Saturilny, they could also read in their inoruiug papers that the snow was three feet dcep in Montana. l'orhnp- tbe Wyoming rnin nniker was trving his hand on tlic snow, just to sliow liis vcrsatility. Tiiky have a very efT.clive but somewhat questi .mnble way of settlintr strikcs in Arkansas. The colorcd cot-ton-pickcrs have baen cxercisiiu their divine right to leave off work just When they are most needed, and some of tbcni wcre riotous withnl. A party of nine of the nuniher urrestcd was in chargo of a sherilT, 001 day last week, when a possc of inen overtook tbem, and thc whole ninc were hllOg withoul ccremony. Tne " labor problein " will doubtlesi disappear for the scason on the Arkausas oottOD plantations. Somk of its thick-and-thin conleni- porarlei of the democratic faith are chiding thc BrattltbOTO Htfornier bc eause itseditor is eXpfOMlfig liis lioncst jiidginent against the party COUrie in New York. The liifirmcr is usually candld) and always able and vlgorous. In st.ite alTiirs, in respcet of which there is little rooiu for a politioal issue, ii is patriotio and in hnimony with the best and most progressive ptlblio senti mcnt. Its general course is in very en viab'.e contrast with that of " tlic OOly" true propbet of democraoy in Vermont. Thk democrats of Massachusetta re nominated Governor Rosssll, last week, and the oampalgn in that state is tiow waxing warm. A jolnt debate be tween Hcury Cabot E dgc and John E. Rusjell is probable. Mr. AKen, the republioan candidate, lus bcen maklng a uuinber of speeehes, and his line lreseuce on the platform is making an exeellent tmpression. Oue of the most interestiug fe.uures of the cam paign will l)e the rally of the people's party t Faneull ball thii evenlng. Edward JielUuuy is to be one of the spenkers. z Harpeh's Wekkly says ; " We have not failed to express our opiuion of 1 Plattlsm,' but still less have we failed to deelare, in thc words of an ctniuent democrat and a distingnished and pub-llo-ipirlted citlzen, that Tammany Hall is a consplracy against honest govern ment. Th.it thc schenie of holding the World's Fair in New York was a shrewd plot for the benefit of Tammany is now n very general bclief, and it 1b no discredit to Mr. l'latt that he saw it when othcrs did not see it, and stoutly resiste 1 it." This is an adtuissiou and a tribute that does in tiuite credit to the candor and intelli gence of Mr. Curtis. the cavalry service than in the in fantry, and Indians are very fond of hortcs. The governor says the In dians are making good cavalrymen. There is little qucstion but. that the cxpcriment will do tlic Indians them selves a certain amountof good. Tbe discipline and respect for authority which will bo acquircd can bardly fail to bear good fruit. As aoldiers, how evcr, it is an opcn qucstion whether or not they will be all that they are cx pected to be. A good soldier tnust, be something inorc than a fighter, cspecially undcr the nciv tactics. THE pcople of Connecticut must be heartily glad that tlic qUMtton of the governorship of that state is to be re ferred to thc suprcnic court, which meets on the 90lh instant. Kxtrane ous points have been eliminatcd by the counscl of the two contestanls, and the qucstion to be answered by thc court is simply whether or not the legtslaturc has the right to rcvise the returns of the town modorators. Xo doubt this course could have been adoptud long ago if a disposiiion to demand jmtice Instead of party suc cess had characteriied the two parttes. When conlrovetsies of this kind occur it is always the habit of each side to insist that it is right in all partlculan and to refuse any conipromise. The fact almost invariably is that each sidc can tnake out a respeciablc case for itself and that the truth is somewhere between the cxtrcnie positious. Thc people of Connecticut are at last aux ious to kuow just where the truth is in their particular difHouHy. The Argus and Patriot decl.ires that the usc of the Uoard of Agriculturc supplement in any forra was uever of fered to the Argm and Patriot, eltber once or twice." A circular, dated June 15, cxplaining the purpoie of thc Board and offering the suppleruents, was sent to evcry paper in tbe state. This cir cular was sent the A njux and l'atrint. It unquestionably received the document. July 2.") a postal card was sent to all paperB that had not tben rcspouded, re quesling tbem to order at once if they desired to be supplied. This card was scut to the Argus and Patriot, and was unquestionably reecived. For reasons or from motives best known to itself, our contemporary did not choose to order tbe lUpplementl and is now seek iug to play the role of a party with a grievance. The Boston Journal, that long-tlme ruember of almoit every republioan fatnily in New Kngland, has donnud a new dress, made in the latest stylc for a newspaper, uamely, thc octavo form. Ita old friends would bardly know it at iirsl sight, but its voice is uot chauged and its louvcrsatiou is still on the top ics of vital interest to New Eugland ers. It is uuueccssary to say that it is as frauk aud uncoiupromisiug in its rc publicanisiu as cver. Uuder the mau agement of Mr. O'Meara the Journal proiuises to be somewhat less con nervative in its treatment of uews, but Heusationalism, we may bt surc, will flnd uo jilace in its columus. The Journal is a dignilied. reliable and en terprisiug paper, and it deserves the miecess which it has had aud which its change of pollcy iusures for it iu the future. Onk of Secretary l'roctor's objects in making bis Westcru trip was to see how the work of enlittiag ludians in the army was progressing. fiovernor I'age reportl that the experiinent Beems to be successful as far as the cavalry is concerned, but that the In diaus do uot take kindly to inlautry nervice. This is uot at all strauge, for there is uaturally niore excitement iu A LETTEB in the American Wool Htporttr says of the "bjom"lown, Oardlff : " Nearly every person has left Cardiff ; the buildings are falling into deoay, and the Whole town pre sents the appr:arance of a desolate waslc and deserted place. A laryc number of houses were begun, and ODly foundatiotll and frames niark the places where it was intcnded to crect flne edifices. Thc buildings that werc eompleted are falling to ruins no one to carc f ir or look aflcr them." Let every oue who is disposed to invest in thcic " growing " Southcru and Wesl ern towns read the above quotation ovcr two oi thrcc times, aud he will be pretty surc to be financially saner for a time at least. Of course there are places that are certain to grow steadily aud eveu rapidly, but an Investor who does not satisfy blmself thut the wave of population is bound by natuial law to roll towaril a particular town is lak ing too many chances when he puts moncy into that town. A few of the new towns will be choseu.but ruore will be left. DeMOCRATIC papers have been cou stant and couscieuceless in their asser tions that tiu plate had not been made in any quantity in this oountry. The wish is evidently father of thc thought with thcse allies of Brltlsh manu facturcrs. Oue linds it diflicult to iufer anything from these papers but a dc sire that no tin plate be made in this country. Can such well-wishcrs of Grcat Britain aud ill-wishers of the Uniled States call themsclves Ameri can citizens without blushing? What interest have they in this country out side their own personal busiuess ? The object of these people seems to be to get as good a niarket as they can for their own products if they have any and theu, as consumers, buy iu the cheapest pauper-labor markets of the whole world. ThiB is the policy of " looking out for No. 1," Tbe idea is for each person to look out for hlm self first aud his country next. What ever the uame due this policy free trade, compctition in the world's markets or individualism it is not Ainericanism, anditis wcll tohave that fact uuderstood. The most recent lie about tin plate is that the tin badges woru at a great meeting at Plqua, Obio, which was addressed by Major Mc Kinley, were of irou dipped in a solu tiou of which lead was a principal cou stitucnt. Investigation shows that this tin plate, which was made at l'iqua, was genuine. In spite of thc wishes of the Britisb mauufacturers and their friends iu this couutry, tiu plate is be ing made, and thc quantity and quality will incrcase right along, while the price will go down. The history of iron aud steel will repeat itself in tin. pline of the army, and Ihen lie began to hiut at another war with Gormany. From this time he posed as the hcro of the pnpulace of I'aris and the lcndcr of all the discontcnted eleracnts. Thc govcrnment regardcd him as a nui sance, and chargcs of conspiracy and treason werc in 18S!) preferred ag tiust him and sevcral of his eupportcrs, two of whom, bcside8 himself, were con victcd and aentcnccd. He himself, for some reason, would not face the trial; he fled to Kngland, and there and in Hclgiurn he passcd the rcmainder of his lifc, losing gradually his hold on puhlic confldence. It is quite certain that he misappropriated public funds, and the only creditable thing in his lifc was his rccord as a soldier. As a po litical figure he was a wretched failure. In private life he was all that is base. Ilaving spent his wife's propcrty, he deserted her, and aniong the fromen Wbom he allowed to supplanl hcr was a well-kn own actress. Thc dcad soldier left behind him a note in which Lfl said he had always done his duty. Evidently his conception of duty wai somewhat different from the prcvail- ing notlon. Tlic Issue in New York. It is dlfflonlt to see how the rcpubli cans of New York can fail to clect their candidate fjr governor. The issue is good govcrnment against Tammany Hall. Mr. Fattott stands for the for ruer, Mr. Flower for tbe laller. Against the democraoy is arraycd not only a unitcd rcpublican party but the coun'.y deiuocracy, aud LleutenanUgovernor Jones and his friends. When to these clementB of opposltion is added also the independent voters, the grcat multitude of whom, led by Gorge William Curtia, will uniti with the republicans in ojipo silion to Tammany, republioan vic tory thc triumph of go id govcrnment seems well assured. SSpeakiug of the political situatiou, inrer's Wttkly says: "Thc opposltion to thc Tam many ticket will be much stronger than thc uniled rcpublican vote, for it will include a very largc and influeuti il democratic vote and a great multitude of independent voters who Will gladly unitc in oppotition to Tammany Hall. We speak of t!ie unitcd republican vote, becausc opposltion to the leadersbip of Mr. Platt wil! not prevent the closest union of republicans against the bh premacy of Tammany. It islong since thc republioan party was less distracled by factional feuds. Mr. White, who represeuts its general intelligence and character ratlier than any personal fac tiou, an 1 the reprcsentalive friends of yr. Warner Miller are a'l co-oporating sincercly with the especi il friends of Mr. Platt, while Mr. Fassett has opened the oampalgn atnid au onthusi astn which usually marks the close of a presidentiai canvass." Oa the re publican side Ums have disappeared and the skios are bright with the light of comiug victory. Gknkual Houlanoeu, the most promiueut mau in Frauce iu tbe past live years, committed Buicide by shoot ing himself through the head at the grave of his ruistress at lliussels. Thc womau, whose uame was Mme. Houue maln, dled a few monlhB ago, and her dcath, or the loss of her mouey, disheartened Boulauger aud drove him to the futal act. Thc brilliant adveu turer was a soldier of acknowledged skill and valor. In the Freuch cam- paigus in ltaly, Cochiu Chiua aud Tuuis he did good service, and in the Franco-Gerrnau war he was with Marshal liu.aine at Met. aud made bis escape with a few other ofllcers to l'aris bet'ore the capitulatiou. Iu put ting down a riol of commuuistB at Champiguy, soon after, he was 80 verely wounded. As minister of war be revolutiouized the Hyetem and disci- unreasonable to predict Allon's elec tion by a good if uot a largc nnjority. The Obio campaign h bein fjught tnainly 09 thc natimal issues of pro tcclion and frcc silver c iinagc. The silver hercsy is well calculalcd to be fu Idlc some of thc furmers who pln for a curreucy that will pay one hun drcd cents of debta with scventy-six cenls of value, bjt do not stop to con si ler the hereaftcr of such a policy. Thc fauaticism of somo scctiona of thc West for Ii t mouey is diflicult of com prebensiou to the avcragc Kastern tnind; but its extsteuce is a facl, if a lamenlable oac. It is the smouldcring 8ark of greenbackism of a dozen ye irs ago; of thc Bland policy of a latcr dalc, aud il necds little fanning to slart it into llame again. From tbe New England point of vicw, it is the rankest of linancial polity; but in thc Wild and wodly West, where all values are niore or less iuflated, it does not bcciu incongrujus. It is this fact which renders tlu fallacy so h vrd to overcome, evcn in a state no further west tbau Oliio, aud tlu election re turns may possibly show that the silver folly has fjund many to ombrace it. The Ohio republicans are makiug a gallant light. By all the Iradi'ions and heredllary inlerests of that state it sluuld bj a winning fight, aud will bs if the agricultural in.erest chooscs not to obslruct its own palhway. The oui look is certainlv h peful and there is yct left another mouth iu which to s:ill further advancc thc party's position. From Town CoiTespondents. .Massaehusctts aud (Miio. The present political campaigning in Massaehusctts aud Ohio is of national interest. Perhaps nevcr before have the results of electious been so tacitlv uuderstood to foreshadow, iu a rneas ure, thc result of a presidentiai con test. A rcpublican victory in Ohio, after the democratic tidal wave of a year ago, wiil almost certaiuly indieate a Wcstern republioan as the standard bearer iu lH'.rl aud fortifv the party iu its position on tbe tariff, aud the neces sity for the democrats again coming EaBt to cut their presidentiai titnbcr. On the other hand, the defeat of Mc Kinley pretty certaiuly means Canip bell for the democracy in 1892, while the republicans will be warued that perhaps a less radical position ou the tariff qucstion would better meet the sentiment of the West. Iu Massachusetta tbe bcaring of the eleetiou on tbe question of presidentiai caudidatcs is less direct tha i in Ohio; though democratic success in that state again this year m'igbt " put a bee iu Kusscli's bounet" for at least the secoud place on the national ticket. Massachusetts iB uormally a republi cau state, notwithstauding the claim of some zcalous democrats, after the election a year ago, that tbe Australian ballot system placed her permauently iu the democratic column. The great manufacturing interests of MasBa chusetts cau as ill afford a dose of the democratic free-trade policy as can thc agricultural aud commercial inter ests of Ohio afford the triumph of the debascd dollar of the Bilver coinage fanatioi who are storming that state. In MaBsachusetts, this year, the re publicanB have surmouuted oue great obstacle to their succesB last year, iu the uomiuation of a young and popular candidate. Ex-Goveruor Brackctt is by no meaus au old mau, but he had iu Bome way alieuated the youngcr ele mcnt of his party, and his defeat was largely due to this defection. Thc con test is largely one of caudidatcs and local iBBues, but the overshadowiug importance of the present republican policy to the material welfaru of the commonwcalth is by no meaus over looked, and it is, in view of the fact that the republicans are united and active for the success of the ticket, not IToman's Hoard of Mltsiouti The nioeteenth annual meeting it the Vermont branoh of theWouan's Board of MImIodi was beld in Betbany churoh, Montpelier, last week WedneadajTi l- glnnlug at nine 0oiook in tbe DBoming and eontiuulng throngta tht; dsjr.
