■OB PUBLISHED EVERT SATURDAY BY .A.. 8KILLMAN._ HATCIIDAY, JANUARY 23, 1897. Kirin IK THE LUTE Discordant notes mar the Republican paean of victory and threaten to utterly destroy its harmony. Some of the mem bers of the band refuse to follow tbe baton of Director Hanna. No finer scheme of politioal campaign ing could be devised than that conoocted by tbe manager of tbe McKinley syndi cate. Its fundamental principle was tbe organization of tbe powerful combine in terests of the country for • speculative venture in politioe. The pool interests were to supply the working capitsl in retnrn for the privilege of despoiling tbe people in tbe event of success. Boss Hanna was to manage tbe cam paign and divide up the spoila among tbe investors. The pool, necessarily, was baaed on the theory that Hanna would ezeroiae the supreme power in the Re publican party and the administration. Of coarse, the pool was a good thing for the Republican party and the programme arranged would be a pleasant and profit able thing for the members of the syn dicate. But tbe programme has met obstruc tions, says the St. Louis Republic. The Republican leaders who have had the direction of tbe party were glad to have tbe aid of the syndicate, but do not pro pose to turn over tbe party to its man ager. They were willing that tbe party should profit by tbe pool’s investment in political enterprise, bat they object to the party's beiog made a mere instrument of speculation now that the victory has been won. They refuse to consent to make all personal ambitions and party ends subservient to political business. Bom Hanna find* hit dictatorship in legislation in behalf of his syndicate dis puted by Dingley, Reed and other party potentates who have their own interests to take oare of. The New England Sen ators are with the insurgents, and Quay has turned on the syndioate and beaten it in Pennsylvania. For outsider* it is a pretty fight. It has great possibilities. Disclosures of profound interest and the wreck of an administration are among them. Cadet George Muon Lee, the son of Gen. Fitzhugh Lee, has been dropped at West Point and retires in disgrace from the olaM of 1900 for deficiency in studies. It is now said they are going to give him another chance, but the humiliation is a fearful one to the Lee family. It is all the worse because this George Mason Lee is a wonderfully bright fellow, but en tirely careless in bis conduct and utterly lacking in application. It hurts all the same, as he is a grandnephew of Robert G. Lee, who stood first in his class, ami the son of Fitzhugh Lee, who came out with excellent standing. The Lees have furnished more cadet* for the National academy and more officer* for the regular army than any other family in the United States, and this is the first time that any of them has been even temporarily dis graced, and it bnrta them worse than it would to ms their boy brought home on his shield. The closing paragraph of John Sher man’s book, published a year ago, take* on new significance in view of the proba bility of his beooming McKinley’s Secre tary of State. He wrote, a* hi* vale diotory message to the people : "I hope that our people will be content with in ternal growth, and avoid the complica tions of foreign acquisitions. A republic should not hold dependent provinces or possessions. Every new acquisition will create new embsrraasmente. The Union already embraces enough discordant ele ment* without adding other*. If my life i* prolonged I will do all I can to add to the strength and prosperity of the United States, bnt nothing to extend its limit* or to add new dangers by the ac quisition of foreign territory.” The oooteat for United Stetei Senator in the State of Washington hat received a new element of interest in the eandi dsey of Mrs. Mary E. Hobart, a strict middle-of-the-road Populist atateiwo man, who oonsidert herself joat the per son to represent the young common wealth in the upper house of Congress. The alleged frauds in connection with the temporary organisation of the Cali fornia Legislature are to be investigated and the whitewash barrel is being put in readiness for its biennial servioe. A Cal ifornia Legislature without a soandal would be a refreshing novelty. The beat that Preaident elect MoKin* ley oan get oat of diatingaiabed Repub lican leaden in behalf of bia adminiatra tion la a good wiab. The politioal aagoa aaaell the coming atorm.

A joint cancnt held last night retailed in vototng a very itrong Jonee sentiment. Speeches were warm on both tides. The tote stood as follows: Jones 35, Niion 3, the latter receiving only hi* own delegation. Nixon was not here, his wif* being seriously ill at Winnemucca. Considerable pressure ba* been brought to bear on Nixon'* friend* the past two days to have tbem telegraph to Nixon to withdraw, so a* to make Jone*’ election unanimous, but they refused. No other name* were presented* to the cancu* for the United State* Senatorship other than Jonee and Nixon. Tbs following Senator* were not present at the canons : Comics, Skaggs, Kaiser, Mills and Summerfleld. AeBemblymen Oliver and Hodgkinton were alto absent. There was a hot fight all day Sunday on the election of attaches of the Assembly. A strong combination wa* finally mad* whfoh carried everything, leaving Storey oonnty practically in the shade, giving her only a messenger and porter. Lem Allen of Churobill wa* elected Speaker without opposition. Wilson and Harmon of Eureka get position* in the Senate. Bartlett of Eureka wa* elected Assistant Chief Clerk of the House after a hot battle. MIST MELL OF SAUKBRCNI1. Canon Appeal: Senator Skaggs of Elko has arrived in thia city and ia at the Ormaby House. He talked freely on the Senatorial situation and said : “ 1 was elected two years ago in Elko oouoty. I ran independent and made ray fight on the proposition of Home rule in Nevada, and Nevada for Nevadans. I told my audiences that any man to get my vote for any office must smell of sage brush, and if there ia any office in this State too good for a Nevadan I am in favor of abolishing it. I have always fought for this principle and always will, and I am glad to see people coming my way. “I am for Judge Fitzgerald of Eoreka for the United States Senate. He is able, he ia pure, and above all he amelia of sagebrush. He haa been living here for at least twenty years, and everything he has on earth is in this State. When a man owns more property in California than he does in Nevada, I class him aa a Californian. I do not for a moment depre ciateJ ones'great ability aa a political lead er, my only objection to him ia that hia home and interests are in California and he don’t stay here long enough to have the pungent sage smell that I like in of fice seekers, and I told him so in Elko a few days ago when we had a friendly talk on the subject. "I believe that the State has given too many offices to people who spend all their money in California, and when their terms of office are op haven’t a rod of land in Nevada to show for the money they drew out of the treasury. *' If the Nixon-Jones fight comes to a dead-lock, I think both forces will unite on Fitzgerald. A. C. Cleveland will also come in the fight with some support.” Attorney General Harmon'a suit to dissolve the Kansas City Live Stock Ex change, on the ground that the institu tion operates in restraint of trade, and therefore violates the anti-trust law, is an important proceeding, and the result of it will be followed with eager interest. If it oan be shown that the present laws are adequate to the trust problem and oan be made to afford ample protection against monopoly oppression, the suit will have served a valuable purpose. Japan’s action in placing orders with American shipbuilders for the construc tion of two great armored cruisers is the prompting of sound sense and a fine ap preciation of onr splendid aohievements in marine architecture. The enterprise of the firms who have seoured these valuable contracts is a tremendous foroe in the work of recreating the navies of the world, and it foreshadows an early expansion in the importance of our ship building industry. Secretary Lamont has ordered the military cadets at West Point to Wash ington to participate in the inauguration day demonstration, but Secretary Her bert deolinea to make any similar order for the nasal oadets at Annapolis. Evi dently Mr. Herbert ie willing to extend only a qualified recognition to the new administration._ Senator Jones of Nevada succeeded himself, whioh is of course the appro priate and expected thing ; for while the silver fight is on, it would be madness to displaoe the original and moat powerful silver champion in the Senate.—Salt Lake Tribune.
