Sr.ND no Instructed delegates. Mork rnln needed In the west. BritATTON hits not been confirmed yet. It pkkmi that DeOress '"downed the boys" again at Austin, If tub Democrats should happen to elect a President, wouldn't tho Itcpubll cans of Texas have a quiet time? Axn now Galveston, Fort Worth and Dallas send up split delegations. These family quarrels In the party are dis graceful. CoNTr.iTixn delegations to the Fort Worth convention should he severely fired. It has almost passed Into a proverb that the greater the Mckcr the greater the sore-head. TitK Marlon Martin shouters bring blushes to Governor Ireland's fnco by saying that Mr. Martin reclved 60,000 more votes on the same ticket than did the Governor. The New York World Is feeling very badly the Inactivity of Congress. "For four weary months," It says, "tho cease less Niagara of slops has floated scarcely a chip of real business." A cnusiDK has been commenced against tho trashy literature of the "Chambermaid's Own" style, and along with the pistol and tho professional Juror the cry ls that It must go. Tim meeting of the Texas veterans at l'arls, which begins April 21, promises to be very Interesting, and the citizens of that pwn pledge themselves to en tertain most royauy ail woo aitenu. Tun Memphis Avalanche makes tho unqualified prediction that by July 1 General Hancock will have scarcely n competitor In his race for the Demo cratic nomination to the Presidency. Tun Victoria Advocate has taken an iron clad oath that the man who wants to announce himself to the suffering public as a candidate for ofllce In that paper must pay up in advance. No cash, no notice. Tint defeat of Representative Con verse's wool tariff bill has completely parailzed the Democratic party, so far as carrying Ohio this fall is concerned, and the Democratlo members from that State say that every chance of victory has been sacrificed beyond recovery. Hon-. W. n. Ciuik, of DeWltt county, is the most prominent man spoken of ns a probable Democratic successor of Mr Ochiltree. The Honorable Tom's fences are in n powerful bad repair all over the District, and he will need to hump him. elf to put in passable good condition be fore the campaign. At so time In the history of Texas in late years has the stock Interest been In so prosperous and flourishing n conditio. Instead of meeting a depressed spring market tho cattlemen have found a boom, and coupled with tho fact that the herds went through the winter with but little loss and in a more than average good condition, makes the prospects for that trade more flattering than usual. Cannot the Democrats muzzle Henri, of the Louisville Courier-Journal? Hear blm hurl these conundrums : "If the Democratic party is not the party of revenue reform what is it ? If it is merely a society for the absorption of oflloes why not couple It to the sleeping car of the party in power and call It the Republican party Junior?" The sugges tion in the second interrogatory is an excellent one. Seven years ago 20 Chicago wen pledged themselves that they would not drink another drop of whisky until a Democratlo President should he nomin ated. Out of tho original 20 two have died, Ave were backsliders and paid their penalty of $100 each, leaving 13, who have stood true to the pledge It Is needless to remark that It will be n ijcold damp day before that 13 will get an ' 'other drink through the means of Demo cratlo Presidential success. ,X connKsroNDENTof the Boston Herald i thinks that the time has come for Queen Victoria to abdicate In favor of the Prince of Wnlcs. "She Is, and has been," he says, "for many years only n figure head to the nation, while he does all tho work, goes among tho people, and Inter ests himself in public affairs, showing great public spirit and liberal views on all occasions. As n soldier, as n hunts man, as a royal personage, and as a true hearted gentleman and kind, generous man, the Prlnco of AVales has to-day no superior In all Great Britain. My vlows of him are now completely revolution ized, for I seo him everywhere I go, nlngllng with tho people, and oven lately prowling among tho slums In order to Improve tho condition or the wretched London poor. Deeds, not words, tell in a man's life record, and tho prejudices which onco existed re garding him are being battered down, and that, too, by his own unostentatious conduct. And his position In the coun try Is rather trying when one reflects on It. For ho Is not absolute King, while he has to act King practically, as It Is Impossible for him toshtno only as n quiet F.ngllslt gentleman." TnuNow York Tribune Is lovcl-hendcd when It says : "It has been wisely said that tho Republican National convention ought to be a dcllbcrativo body. As n. rule, national conventions are something else. Hut It would not bo well this year to liavo tho Republican nomination made either nt hap-liazard or by tho grinding of any machine, or In any mere gush of personal enthusiasm. It Is pre-eminently an occasion which calls for delibera tion for candid recognition and careful weighing of facts mid reasons. 'I his Is true becauso tho Republican party Is no longer In much danger from Its oppon ents; Its chief danger is that the Repub lican voters themselves may not be satis- fled. It Is tho fact that they are not much In tho humor to votofor u nomina tion that they think unfit. It has seemed to them for some years that the objects for which thdltepubllcan party Is main tained were, in some cases, lost sight of too much In tho struggles of Individuals for position. A nomination that seems to Imply any surrender or betrayal of tho convictions of sincere and patriotic Republicans, It must be obvious, would endanger tho success of the party far more than anything tho Democrats linvo power to do.
