The New York Tribune offers as an amendment to Cleveland and i burinan—which it considers clumsy —“The Kollar and the ’Kerchief.” ! That is about the size of it.—Denver ( I rimes. ! Mr. Cleveland’s speech of accept-1 mice of the nomination for‘thu presi dency contained forty-four “I’s,” “rneV* and “myself’s.” Mr. Cleve land evidently thinks well of him self* —Santa Fe New Mexican. Eight years ago Levi I*. Morton titled out the ship Constellation with i food for the starving people of Ire land. This benefaction, which on jdeubledlv saved many lives, cost the donor about * >0,000. —Globe-Demo- crat. English free traders would be well advised if they moderated the ecsta- ; i cy of their jubilation over President ! Cleveland’s message. Every word 1 which they say in its favor will be | used as a powerful argument against , the adoption of its recommendation. I London Pall Mall Gazette. 1 The handwriting on the wall. Says 1 ! the Denver Republican: The only democratic candidate for j j the presidency who was nominated \ j by acclamation besides Mr. Clevc i laud was M u tin Van Daren. The j i man who defeated Van Bure a was j named Harrison. Cleveland’s luck I seems to have changed. Every American hoy and girl should know bow to make the Amur-1 ican dag in all its proper proportions, j 1 Tho rule in the navy is this: “The flag is thirteen stripes wide and . twenty-one stripes long. The! j union (blue) is sev« n stripes square, j ; There i- one star for each state in > I tho union.” “Tho bandana” is an I imported article, and has no regula* I i tion size.—Toledo Blade. Senator Platt, ot Connecticut, says: “The Democrats arc all broken up. t They hoped and expected to carry 1 Rhode Island, but they failed. They j hoped and expected to carry Oregon, j hut failed. Oregon went democratic two years ago, yd here it is republi can by a big majority. The faet is that the democrats Lave failed to get the temper of the people, either in or out of the party, on the tariff issue, and as a result they are going to be beaten.”—Denver Times. 1 A great”sensation has been created j by President Cleveland's message, and if the policy which it indicates be carried out it will produce almost' j as much' effect in this country ns in America. The tariff reform which | the President recommend* goes as 1 far, at least, as the abolition or re j duction of tho duties on raw materi als. Should Congress give effect to this proposal its immediate result would be an enormous stimulist to English industry. —People’s Journal, j Dundee. ! Serious and almost fatal effects | followed the eating of ice cream made by Mr. and Mrs. Don K. Sears, and eaten by themselves, relatives and friends, Wednesday noon. In ' come way the cream had become ! tainted, whether in the milk or ! through chemical action in the freez ] ,. r . and of ten who relished the cream ' eight were made dangerously ill. The poison, or whatever it .was, did | not manifest itself seriously until i Thursday morning, when friends dis covered the parties m deathly illness at their various homes. Mr. Sears was affected most severely and suf fered in delirium all day and night. Mrs. SeArs, Mrs. Rodgers ar.d two children, Frank Steel, Clel Durl&nd and Walter Griffith were affected in various degrees of severity.—Chey enne Wells Gazette. From the Philadelphia Pre*H. Grover Cleveland isn’t receiving any letters like the following, which General Harrison found in l.is mail the other day: IIawks City, Ivan., June 28. Congratulations of an old soldier of your regiment whose knapsack you carried when he was exhausted from sickness and fatigue m the At lanta campaign. J. F. Snow. Private Company D, Seventieth In diana Infantry. Grover Cleveland, we say, isn’t receiving any letters like that, but maybe his substitute did beCore lie died in the poorhouse.—Denver Re publican. What a striking contrast there is between the Chicago platform and the veto messages of Cleveland in reference to the old soldiers. The veteran, be he democrat or republi can, who casts his vote against that 1 platform simply endorses the piea- I vanish policy of the president. It i is not possible for Cleveland to feel [upon the subject as one who had I withstood the fiery baptism. IIis | fighting was done bv proxy, and it i is not only unfair to the veteran but | it is presumptuous in him to say who I ahull or who shall not have pensions. ] | The republican platform displays i the proper spirit and correctly as-' i hnines that the debt which the conn | try owes the old soldier is beyond ! ! the power of money to repay.— j ! Graphic. i Albia Union: Many young per- I sons will ask, what is a bandana? An ! old style bandana was usually a silk, | lor cotton hankerchief died red, with j I round or diamond shape spots of | white or yellow, at regular intervals. I ■ Hut what does it mean iu Thurman’s i I case? It moans that the old man I Thurman is a snuff taker. But what has-the bandana have to do with! snuff taking? Only this, snuff tak ing requires a frequent blowing of the probosis. The filthy exubations • f the nose would soil a white band kerchief, so the old gentleman adopt j ed the bandana as the best method | of hiding the nasty exudation of the ; nose. And that old filthy bandana has become the rallying rag around which the democratic legions gather. We can say m the language of the slang slinger, “Its awful appropri ate.” J. W. Pollock, (Clinton, Iowa,) — I was a delegate from Nebraska to the convention at Cincinnati that nominated Hancock, and I went I down to St. Louis to compare the two bodies. If there is any fore shadowing in spontaneous conyen | non enthusiasm, Cleveland will nev er he elected president. I never in : my life saw more mechanical con trivances for making a noise at the 'St. Louis convention. But it was • purely, mechanical, and I felt all the time like asking how much it cost? At the nomination of Hancock the ' boys went wild with real heartfelt i happiness. The military record of the old hero, his fine presence, his manly traits all combine! to give him a real hold upon the heart of the party, and when he was nominated it was thought impossible to defeat ' him, but somehow they did it. If the republicans head their ticket at i Chicago with u good soldier they will be mighty apt to make us demo crats sick at the stomach. —Kansas i City Record. '> The Philadelphia Press thusly J gives republican principles and the ; gist of the republican platform: j Protection to American rights. This is the republican creed and plat ' form in the coming campaign. Protection to the rights of Amer ; ican labor, threatened by a low tariff ' and foreign cheap wages. Protection to the American tax ! payers, wantonly burdened for years j by needless taxation like the tobacco and other internal revenue taxes, which neither party supports, but which a democratic majority main tains. Protection to the rights of Ameri can voters, threatened at the north by the suppression of the votes of others at the south, threatened at the south by the suppression of their own votes. Protection to the American com mercial rights, threatened by the sur render of the fisheries treaty. Protection to every American citi zen out of office against the political manipulation of officeholders, and to every American citizen in office against the pressure, patronage and assessments of politicians. Many years ago I heard the G. P. Dios way, who was a confirmed hum orist, tell the following story, which lie had received from a soldier, and I also heard it from C:rpt. Ballou of the 115th regiment. A private in one of the Pennsylvania regiments got leave to go hunting, arid unfortu nately shot a tame crow belonging to a planter, who happened to come up just as the bird was Killed. The unlucky hunter had rested his mus ket against a tree, and the planter seized it, and, pointing it at the former exclaimed: “You can eat that crow or die.” There being no escape, the hunter got through with part of his distastful meal, when the planter, relenting, said: “You’ve done pretty well; here, take your gun and get off 1 ight smart.” The soldier, as soon as he got the piece in his hands, ! immediately turned the tables by leveling it at the planter, exclaiming: “Xow you eat the rest of that crow I or I’ll shoot you on the spot.” There [being no escape, the thing was done. [ In a few days the planter had an oc ! casion to visit the camp, and as the [soldier recognized him, one of the officers inquired: “Do you know 1 that man? “Oh yes,” replied the planter, “we dined together last week.”—Troy Times. From the last issue of the Arizona Kicker we cull the following: “We notice that some humpback ed coward has tacked up a written plackard on the postoffice door ask ing why we have not been run out of town. If the man who wrote it will reveal his identity, and if we can’t put him two feet under the ground inside of five minutes, we will agree to cancel the insurance on our office, set the shanty on lire and leave town on foot.” “We have received a two-column letter signed 'Veritas,’ which pur ports to give a true history of Maj. Cralvanus Burt, proprietor and land lord of the Adams House. lie is shown up as a thief, hypocrite, liar, and coward, but we shall not pub lish it. While he keeps the most miserable apology, for a hotel rin earth, and while wo are satisfied he would steal the winkers from a dead | dog's eye, the Major was the first • man in town to subscribe to our pa per, and wo are not going back on him unless he refuses to renew.” “We had a call yesterday from Jim Dana, editor of the Western Bun Whacker. Jim the ragged » sr, leanest, poorest, dried-up speci men of the editorial fraternity we ever shook paws with, and his paper isn’t fit to wrap a dead cayoto in. He is always blowing about the Bull Whacker’s influence and ciculation, and has got an idea that he will go to Congress next year. Hi? journalis tic dishcloth is the laughing-stock of the section and Jim couldn’t sell himself for wolf bait.” The Kansas News, published at Emporia, Kansas, in 1857, by P. B. Plumb, contained the following bit of advice to the rising generation. The Kansas City Times says of it: “One of the moat interesting things in the paper is the advice given a young man who asked a Washing NUMBER 5. • ton clerkship of Hon. Tom Corwin • while the latter was a member of the Cabinet. Mr. Plumb quotes it in. the News adprovingly. This is what Mr. Corwin said: My young friend, go to the north* west: buy 160 acres* of government ! land—or, if you have no money to purchase, 6quat on it; get you an ax and a mattock; put up a log cabin ■ for a habitation, and raise a little ■ corn and potatoes; keep your con science clear and like a freeman; ■ your own master, no one to give you ‘ orders, and without dependence on ' anybody. Do that, and you will be ‘ come honored, respected, influential and rich. But accept a clerkship here, and you sink at once all inde pendence. Your energies become relaxed, and you are unfitted in a lew years for any other and inde pendent position. I may give you a . place to-day and can kick you out to morrow. And there is a man over at the White House who can kick me out. And the people by and by ’ can kick him out. And so we go. But if you own an acre of land, it is your kingdom; and your cabin is your eastle. You are a sovereign and you will feel it in every throb bing of your pulse, and every day of your life would assure me of your thanks for having thus advised you,” i Comm’ner’s Proceedings.
