It looks very much like tiiiscoun
try was going to have trouble with
Chili. The news from that country
indica'f ' that the Chilians are anx
ious to measure swords with the
Tnitcd States, and this government
is rapidly massing a fleet in the Pa
Diking the Speakership contest
( !ov. Buchanan spent several days in
Washington, and afterward went to
New York with other State officials
to arrange for a loan of $'2"0,0()0 to
meet the January intercut on the
State debt. The State's revenues
seem inadequate to meet its obliga
tions, Jand it looks inevitable that
the next Legislatuee will ltave to
raise the rate of taxation or else find
more property to assess.
The Nashville American should
swallow its dish of Speakership crow
more gracefully, f.nd not keep
spewing it out upon all Democrats
who do not altogether share its over
weaning admiration of Mr. Mills or
its very narrow opinion of Mr. Crisp.
We know that crow is very hard to
swallow at best, and the dish which
the American now has before it is
particularly rank and unpalatable,
but gagging over it won't improve it
n particle, and the longer the Amer
ican puts off gulping it down the
mora nausoating will it become. The
American is probably entitled to
some degree of sympathy at the pros
cnt time, owing to the fact that its
digestive organs have been sadly out
of repair ever since the great McDow
ell-Iiuchanan-McConnell clam bake
of 1890, when that journal imbibed so
much or tne essence ot the uncanny
bivalve rs to render it just a little de
lirious, and although it has strugglec
desperately at times it has never yet
entirely overcome the bad effects of
that high old jamboree. The paper
is certainly not doing either itself or
the Democratic party any good by its
present course. It should take oog-
nizanceof the fact that Mr. Crisp is
Speaker of the House, he was
elevated to the position by a majority
of the Democratic members of that
body, and immediately abandon the
work to which it has been so assidu
ously addressing itself for the last
two weeks, of manufacturing cam

Death of Senator Plumb.
Hon. Preston B. Plumb, United
States Senator from Kansas, died at
Washington last Sunday morning at
11:30 o'clock, of apoplexy, superin
duced by overwork. He had been
warned by his physician two weeks
before hand to quit work and take
a rest, but he failed to heed the warn
ing. His death removes from the
ranks of the Senate one of the fore
most, and most useful men on the Re
publican side. Washington dis
patches give the following brief
sketch of Senator Plumb's life:
Senator Plumb was born in Dele
ware County, Ohio., Oct. 12, 1837, so
that he was in his 54th year at the
time of his death. He was not a col
lege graduate, but left the common
schools for the printer's case, and in
pursuance of his vocation as a jour
neyman printer in 18.j(, in
the bloody days ot the his
tory and newly organized territory of
Kansas, walked into that Territory,
and with tho vigor and indefatigable
energy which has throughout his life
been his chief characteristic the
young man plunged at once in
to the thick of hot political strife
which was then waging over the
State slavery question. He at once
went to the front and was chosen a
member of the Leavenworth Const!
tutional convention of 1851). He was
admitted to the bar in 1801, when
the place of his adoption became a
State of the Union; served in the
Legislature in 1802, was Chairman of
the Judiciary Committee, and subse
quently reporter of the Supreme
When the war broke out lie enter
ed the array as Second Lieutenant in
the Eleventh Kansas Infantry and
served successively as Captain,
Major and Lieutenant Colonel of that
regiment, and was commiasioned a
Colonel of the same regiment in Au
After the war Mr. Plumb, return
ing to Kansas, was elected a member
and Speaker of the Kansas House of
Representatives, and in 1S70 was
chosen United States Senator to suc
ceed James M. Harvey, Republican
He took his Feat in 1877 and has rep
resented his State as a Senator ever
since that time. II w term of office
would have expired March.'1,. 10-5
Undoubtedly Senator Plumb has
succeeded in stamping his strong in
dividuality upon the legislative his
tory of tho United States in more per
manent character than have the
the majority of his colleagues. He
was a man of most positive views,
but always had a keen appreciation
of the line of separation between the
impracticable and the expedient,
His devotion to Republican princi
ples was beyond question, but he
never hesitated to point out what he
regarded as mistakes in the policy
outlined by the party leaders and to
use his best efforts to correct them.
He was peculiarly fitted to grasp de
tails. That faculty found ample
field for exercise in the discharge of
his functions as a member of the
Senate Committee on Appropriations,
and it was frnnerally understood
among his broil.- r senators that Sen
Plumb was unimpeachable in any
statements he made concerning the
intricate machinery of the Govern
ment service. He was chairman of
the Committee on Public Lands and
a member of the Committee o:i Agri
culture, Executive Departments,
Method and Administrative service of
Senator Plumb's social qualities
were highly esteemed in Washing-
A. . . . II
ion ami ins presence was always ap
preciated at social gatherings and a
the club of which ho was a member.
His interests were large, for Senator
Plumb was a wealthy man, and in
addition to his senatorial duties he
was actively concerned in railrcnd
and industrial enterprises and was
widely known In financial circles as
an indefatigable worker.
They Eave His Sympathy.
Mr. McDowell is reported as saying
in a speech at Knoxville, referring to
the action of the miners in turning
the convicts loose upon the country,
burning the stockades and robbing
stores, "their last action was very
wrong, but very human. While I
condemn their action as unlawful and
wrong, I say they have my sym
pathy." This is mighty hard on
Gov. Buchanan, whose friend and
appointee Mr. McDowell is. It is
also very hard on tho Alliance peo
ple whom he represents, and who
claim to be law abiding people. How
will the Governor bo able to restore
peace and uphold the majesty of the
law if his friends go out preaching
this way to tho lawless ?
Didn't Want Any More Like Enloe.
A Washington special in the

A good joke has. just been made
public at the expense of Mr. Enloe,
of Tennessee, who was one of Mr.
Reed's most bitter and uncompro
mising enemies in the last Congress.
Enloe was noted for his antagonism
to Reed's rules and never lost an
opportunity to express his contempt
for them and their author, but al
ways, of course, within the parlia
mentary limit. It is related that a
member from North Carolina, Maj.
McClammy, a diminutive specimen
of piney woods statesman, was so
licitous to call up a local measure,
and failing on all occasions to catch
the coveted eye of the Speaker he
eventually approached the desk and
proceeded to argue the merits of his
proposed legislation, but to no pur
pose, for Reed would give him no
manner of assurance. Finally the
Major declared to Reed that this par
ticular bill was necessary for his peo
ple, and its passage or rejection in
volved his re-election. "And Mr.
Speaker," remarked McClammy, "I
warn you that if I fail to pass it, my
district will send a man here as my
substitute who for pure cussedness
will exceed Enloe, of Tennessee, as
the numeral ten exceeds the numeral
one." This argument is said to have
fetched Reed, and in his drawling,
nasal way he replied: "Well, Mac, if
you have a meaner Democrat than
Enloe in your parts who threatens
to break into this body, trot out your
bill and I will recognize you." And
