Hurt the interest you represent has reached
*. magnitude that calls for the very wisest ad
ministration. The time has come when so
great an interest should receive all the aid
that special education can give. Further, it
should be fostered and protected by the legis
lation of these states.
A general survey of the question discloses
not only much that encourages us, but also
verv many mistakes. It seems to be a very
difficult task to reach a large proportion of
the milk producers of the northwest and get
them to adopt the standard ideas of the day
in dairving. They are not dairymen; they
have but little real pride in the business and
what is worse, they will expend neither
money nor time to learn better. Not one in
t hundred of the patrons of the cheese fac
tories and creameries of the northwest ever
attend a dairy convention. But very few of
them read such papers as devote especial at
tention to this subject. They do not seem to
care whether they succeed well or ill at the
Of a truth it i« hard to leaven such a lump.
Compare the results per cow of the great
nass of dairymen with what is obtained by
/uch men as Hon. Hiram Smith, N. Morley,
ft. S. Houston, Chas. R. Beach and the
Black Bro. of Wis., H. B. Gurler, C. C.
Buell, E. J. Oatman, G. Lord, of Ill
inois, together with hundreds of others in
these states and in Iowa and Minnesota, all
eagerly pressing to the front.
What is the lesson that the comparison
teaches? It is this! The men whose names
1 have mentioned are making their cows earn
from $70 to $90 each for the season. The
great mass are apparently satisfied if they
£et $40 or less. Yet the seventy-dollar men
drill spend twice the time and money to at
tend conventions, to read, study and com
pare that the other class will. This is the
first grand mistake from whose prolific loins
are bred all others. The seventy-dollar men
feed liberally, the other do not. The first
breed for the milk pail and churn; the lat
ter do not: the first provide themselves with
tbe very best dairy appliances they can pro
eun—the latter say "it don't pay," and
there they remain. The first provide their
herds with early cut hay, full of succulence
and good results—the latter, never. The
first see to it that their cows have pure water,
the latter wonder what a cow can want of
water, any way, and particularly pure water.
The first provide convenient, well ventilated
aarns—the latter do not seem to know what
i good barn is. The first will keep up the
How of milk in their cows by extra feed dur
ing the droughts of summer when prices are
low, in order that they may have abundant
yield in autumn when prices are high—the
latter hold the feed cent so close to their eye
that they cannot see the milk dollar. The
flrst-cktss, in a word, are ambitious of being
dairymen in the most, profitable sense of
the word. They take a pride in their busi
ness, in keeping posted in it and their splen
did success attests their superior wisdom.
A very serious mistake is the lack of co
operation on the part of milk producers—
another, in going along year after year with
out testing the individual profitableness of
their cows.
All these are the errors of an ignorant and
unprofitable practice. There is a better way,
and all intelligent men in the business pur
sue it. I have tried in these remarks to di
vide truth from error as best I can, and to
stimulate thought, rather than please the car
ami Hatter vanity.
I cannot close without uttering a few
brief words in tribute to the memory of a
gentleman now dead, to whose genius and
labors the farmers of the northwest owe a
debt of ingratitude which they will never be
able to repay.
I alluded to the late C. C. Fairlamb, the
founder of the gathered cream system of
butter making. It was his fertile brain, his
patient hand, and inventive purpose that in
a great measure placed the scattered farm
ers of these northwestern prairies on nearly
an eqnal footing with the older and more
favored dairy districts. His labors have added
immeasurably to tlie wealth of the north
Although possessed of frail health,
his enthusiasm in demonstrating the practi
cability of his ideas, was unbounded, and
he continued to work for the success of the
gathered cream system, even after approach
ing death was visible to his own eyes. He
added another instance to the long line of
thinke's and inveutors, whose ideas and la
bors have given to the farmers of the north
west and the whole country, new encour
agement and hope.
The convention this Association held
in this city a year ago, was one of the
largest and most benficial in its results of
any like convention in the history of the
United States.
In all the discussions there was a conspic
uous absence of personal vanity and a
marked singleness of purpose to accomplish
the greatest good possible. Let us work in
the same spirit this year.
I desire on behalf of the Association to ex
press its sincere acknowledgements to the
entire press of the northwest, for the marked
courtesy which has been displayed in pub
lishing, free of charge, the announcement
of its conventions, together with full aud ac
curate reports of the same. The progress of
dairying owes more to the press than to any
other agency in society.
At the close of the address the
president announced the usual committees.
The second paper read was by J. C. Cur
tis, of Rocky Run, Wis., a very practical
Yankee dairyman who prefaced his essay by
saying that a few years since he found his
farm becoming so depleted by continual
wheat raising that he was compelled to seek
some other system of farming. He turned
his attention to sheep raising, but soon
found out that he was not destined to be
come a successfdl shepherd, and
he next turned his attention to the dairy.
Following this a paper was read by Mr. H.
E. Hoard, editor of Montevidio Leader of
Montevedio, Minn., entitled, "Skim Milk
Farming," in which he gave many practical
instances of such farming and also some
very entertaining figures showing the large
proportion of the value of the wheat crop as
compared with the same value of dairy
products which the producer is compelled to
part with to the transportation companies.
His remarks were supplemented by some
few statistics by the president, of the same
general tendency, after which the closing
paper of the forenoon was read by Mr. C. F.
Dexter, of Chicago, on the subject of
"Organization for the Promotion of Special
Interests,", which closed the forenoon
afternoon session.
The afternoon session opened at 2
p. m. with an increased attendance.
A paper by Mr. A. P. McKinstry
of Winnebago City, Minn., upon the topic of
"Shortage in the Cream Gathering System,"
was read.
The discussion following the paper was
participated in by a large number, and was,
as usual, of a quite interesting nature. At
its close several interesting essays from the
Prairie Farmer were read by Mr. Hoard,
when a paper upon ' 'The Cow, the Calf and
the Pig," by H. B, Gurlee, of De Kalb, 111.
The evening session opened with an im
mense audience present, every available foot
of space being occupied, over 1,400 people
were seated, and 200 had standing room
only. The Genuania band opened the ball
in splendid style, playing while the crowd
was assembling and the preliminary arrange
ments were being completed. The" exercises
of the evening were begun by the president
declaring the convention open, a quorum
being present. The normal choir were then
announced, who rendered one of
the haymakers' choruses in cos
tume and were warmly applauded
and recalled. Next came a mixed quartette,
"Where are you going to, my pretty maid."
which wns loudly encored. Mrs. Dr. Cur
rier, of Lake Crystal, Minn., was then intro
duced, and proceeded to read a paper enti
tled "Practical Truths by a Farmer's Wife."
The further exercises of the evening were
varied by several solos from Miss Hutchinson,
of the Normal school, and Mr. Lombard, of
Chicago; a duet from Lombard and Curtis,
and a elosing chorus by the normal choir.
The programme for Thursday will be the
richest of the entire week, and the evening
will be devoted to the banquet

Heavy Rains in the Ohio Valley
Make the Situation
Still Worse.
The Water Still Rising: at Cincinnati
and Places Contiguous Both
Above and Below.
The Country Wakening up in Earnest and the
Much Needed Relief Pouring in From
all Quarters—Incidents.
Cincinnati, Feb. 13.—The suspense over
the failure to hear definite news from Law
renceburg, Indiana, grows j>ainful, but is
tempered by the belief that if a serious disas
ter, involving loss of life, had occurred, some
means would have been found to get word
from Lawrenceburg to Aurora, where is the
nearest telegraph office. The Times-Star's
Aurora, Indiana, special says: At 10 a. m.,
no news from Lawrenceburg. Many houses
are seen floating down this forenoon, and the
anxiety is great. The water is now rising an
inch an hour, and more houses are toppling
Cincinnati, Feb. 13, 1 p. m.—At 1 p. m.
the river reached sixty-nine feet ten and one
half inches, a rise varying during the morn
ing from one-quarter to one-half inches an
hour. A misty rain is falling, with the wind
northwest. The signal service flag, denoting
coming cold weather, floats to-day, the third
time since the flood began. Hitherto its
presence was welcomed, but now it brings
the worst apprehensions, as cold weather now
could havo no substantial effect on the water,
a'disaster that has about done its worst; but
with cold weather the suffering of
the imprisoned people in all the
towns and cities along the Ohio
would increase terribly for lack of fuel. Few
realize the difficulty of getting supplies deliv
ered. There are no landings for steamers
and the damage done to buildings by the
waves, caused by passing steamers has been
si i great as to cause the occupants in the
flooded houses to fire on the steamers bring
ing relief. Relief steamers to be of real
service, will have to be equipped with life
saving boats and crews, and it can readily
be' seen how slow would be the work of car
rying any considerable quantity of fuel to
such places as Lawrenceburg, Ind., New
Richmond, Ohio, that are entirely submerged
and surrounded by water, with no re
lief yet sent out from here. Gen.
Beekwith, of St. Louis, is expected this even
ing to take charge of the work of relief un
der the direction of the secretary of war. He
will charter a relief boat and United Stales
officers have, been- ordered here from Colum
bus, to take charge of the different steam
ers. Nothing is done on 'change except to
receive subscriptions. Dispatches are re
ceived announcing contribution from vari
ous sources, among them $500 from the town
council of Lebanon, Ohio, $500 from a busi
ness firm in Chicago, and similar sums from
New York and Philadelphia firms, having re
presentatives here. Large subscriptions arc
received from the citizens, among them one
of S250 from R. R. Springer, whose gifts to
the city have made him the most honored
man in the city; his is the largest individ
ual subscription yet received. A call
has been issued by Major Lloyd, commander
of the department of the Ohio Grand Army
of the Republic, for contributions, to the
various posts throughout the state. A dis
patch from Evansville, Ind., says during a
severe rain storm of yesterday evening a
party of thirteen, in three skiffs, iu attempt
ing to cross from the Kentucky shore, were
drowned. It has not been possible to pro
cure names. The heavy current from the
Licking river, at three this morning, washed
away twenty or more houses in Newport, Ky.
They arc huddled together and thrown into
all sorts of shapes. Three streets are block
ed by houses, removed from their founda
tions. It is reported that two uuknown men
fell from a skiff under the suspension bridge,
and were drowned. The News Journal spec
ial from Portsmouth, datedyesterday,and for
warded from Sciotaville, the nearest
telegraph station says: Not an acre of dry
ground in the city, and not 100 houses not
under water. In the fire on Sunday, Spry's,
not Shay's block, Green's feed store and the
Arcade were burned. One hundred sacks of
mail was burned. The telephone exchange
is destroyed, aud many houses floated off.
The postoffice and banks are closed. The
corn and hay crops iu the Sciota valley are
ruined. At Galliopolis it is estimated that
3,000 people along the river and within
twenty miles will have to be supported by
charity for two weeks.
distribution of GOVERNMEMT SUPPLIES.
Washington, Feb. 13.—Secretary Lincoln
has ordered four officers from Columbus bar
racks, Ohio, to Cincinnati, to assist in dis
tributing supplies to the sufferers from the
flood utider direction of Gen. Beekwith. Capt.
T. S. Cashing, of the subsistence department,
has been ordered to Pittsburg to oversee the
purchase and distribution of supplies. Two
other officers have been ordered to that point
to accompany the boats which will carry re.
lief to the sufferers from that city
philadelphia's contribution.
Philadelphia, Feb. 13.—At a meeting of
citizens for the relief of the sufferers by the
flood, G. Ed. W. Childs subscribed $500, and
A. J. Drexel & Co. $500. It was decided to
send $2,000 to Cincinnati.
Chattanooga, Feb. 13.—Local subscrip
tions for the relief of the flood sufferers arc
being received. The Times headed the list
with $100.
Wheeling,W. Va.,Feb. 13.—AtWellsburg,
twenty miles above here, the people are des
titute and suffering. A dispatch was sent
from here to Congressman Goff this after
noon, asking him to have $1,000 sent there
by the war department at once. The work of
relieving suffering is progressing favorably,
but there is still great need. The home fund
for relief has reached $25,000 in cash, and as
much in goods, but this, and the donations
from abroad disappear as fast as received.
Among the contributions received are John
W. Garrett, Baltimore, $800; S. J. Tildcn,
New York, $250; James Keane, New York,
$350; Wheeling & Belmont, Bridge count}-,
$1,000: Charleston, W. Va. town council,
$500. Masons desiring to contribute can
send drafts to the Masonic relief commitee,
Wm. Hastings, chairman. The State Fair
association loses $20,000. It was in its in
fancy and already heavily in debt, and the
blow ruins it. There wiil be no fair in Sep
thankful for ever so little.
Portsmouth, O., Feb. 13.—The entire city
is under water, three-fourths of it to the house
tops. All of the merchants lose heavily from
inundated stock, and one-half of the citizens
lose all of their household goods. The river
commenced falling slowly last night, and has
dropped three inches, and the people are
breathing freely again. Supplies are coming
in from the surrounding country and famine
is being averted. The relief boat has to-day
gonc to Slocum to obtain several car loads of
supplies and camp equipages sent from
Columbus. The court house, school build
ings and many of the churches that have
second stories are sheltering one-half of the
people, and the balance are scattered
around in attics and in the upper part of tall
factories. The horses und cattle have all
been rescued, and are stabled on huge deck
barges that are moored in the streets in the
center of the city. One hundred and twenty
dwelling houses have been carried away, and
over 500 more have been swept from their
sites, and piled in an indescribable wreck
against obstruction. It is estimated that
there are provisions enough on band to last
forty-eight hours. A telegraph wire will be
stretched to-day, which will give us com
munication with the outside world. No
mails since Friday. Mayor McFarland, City
Murshal Lewis, and Dr. Davidson, chairman
of the relief committee, have organized the
city completely for the work of relief and the
people are being fed like a vast army.
Harmar, O., Feb. 13.—Our town is flood
ed and the people are destitute. Hundreds
of buildings are washed away and we are
camping on the hillsides. Harmar has al
ways responded nobly to appeals elsewhere,
and now asks for those more fortunate to
help her. Money, clothing or food can be
sent to Geo. H. Stevens, Marietta, or the
Harmar relief committee.
Pittsburg, Feb. 13.—While crossing the
Monongahela river at Port Perry, in a skiff,
this mornieg, Frank Heinberger and John
Seeman were drawn nnder a coal flat by the
strong current and drowned.
Cleveland, Feb. 13.—The local relief or
ganization to-day shipped a carload of pre
pared food to Gallipolis, and another to Ports
mouth. The committee are actively raising
money. A meeting of the citizens was held
this morning again, the mayor presiding.
Senator elect, H. B. Payne, made an elo
quent appeal for the sufferers.
Terre Haute, Feb. 13.—At 5 o'clock this
morning, Jerry Hanley missed his wife,
Mary, aged fifty-six, from bed. Search re
vealed her at the bottom of the cistern. Her
mind was deranged and she had slipped out
6ome time during the night and jumped in.
Pittsburg, Feb. 13. —The stable of Thos.
Murray, on Second street, was destroyed by
fire early this morning, and five horses and
mules were cremated. A family named
Joyle, living over the stable, barely escaped
with their lives, and lost all their household
goods. The entire loss by fire is $3,000.
Ashland, Ky., is in a bad state, business
being entirely suspended by the high water.
At Catlettsburg the National bank is ten
feet under water, and the books had to be
taken to a place of safety.
The government relief boat did not leave
Pittsburg last night as expected, but will
leave this morning.
At Pittsburg a number of relief committees
have been organized, who are starting down
the river carrying relief.
The matinee by the Mapleson company, in
Chicago, yesterday, realized the handsome
sum of $4,000 for the flood sufferers.
The Ben Wood Iron Manufacturing com
pany, at Wheeling, W. Va., have given
§1,000 to the sufferers by the flood among
their own employes.
Lawrenceburg, Ky., is in a deplorable
state, and the people have lost their homes
and everything else.

At Steubenvilft, Ohio, part of the city is
under water, and the loss in one ward where
the poor live will amount to $100,000.
At Milwaukee some cash has been raised
for the flood sufferers, but the people there
think that the money given last year was not
justly expended.

Railway Work in Dakota.
From an official of the Northwestern road
is learned that the Northwestern company
will begin work on a new extension in Da
kota as soon as the weather will permit, in
the spring. The new branch will start from
Redtield Junction, in Spink county, and will
run from there directly past to the river to
the new town of Fairbanks. The company
will thus have parallel lines through the
western counties, only a few miles apart.
Fairbanks is but twenty-five miles north of
Pierre, and is said to have river transporta
tion and terminal facilities far superior to
Pierre. In anticipation of the extension a
number of the leading officials of the road
have formed a syndicate for the purchase of
land in and around Fairbanks.
Freights Aoross tlie Soundan/ Line.
Railroad officials in St. Paul, yesterday re
ceived circulars notifying them that in order
to avoid vexatious delays tofreight in passing
the boundary line, arising from the require
ments of customs regulations, all shipments
from points within the United States destined
to points in British Columbia, Manitoba or
Northwest territory must be provided with
original and duplicate invoices, which must
be attached to duplicate bill of lading, and
be transmitted with the way bills accompany
ing the freight. Shipments that are not ac
companied by invoices as above cannot pass
the British customs until 6uch invoices are
Going for the Scalpers.
An important rumor came to the surface
last night, to the effect that the railroad com
panies centering in St. Paul had agreed to
cut scalping tickets altogether, the penalty
being a forfeit of $500.
The scalping business is carried on very
extensively here; a large proportion of the
tickets sold being disposed of by these curb
stone agents. Each road has its special
scalpers who work exclusively in its interest.
Of course competition is brisk
and somehow or other, not
withst anding the agreement of the several
managers the scalpers can and do sell tickets
at a considerably lower figure than they can
be bought for directly from the railroads.
Yet, notwithstanding this fact, the scalpers
seem to bo growing fat on their
profits. This scalper business is an unmiti
gated evil as far as the railroads are con
cerned, at any rate, for in them devolves the
support of the scalpers and they have to sell
tickets, through them at lower rates than
they otherwise would. It is impossible yet to
fortell the bearing on rates of the abolition
of the scalper system, but it is predicted by
those who ought to know, that it will result in
the cutting of rates openly, instead of
through the middle men. It is not likely
that this •frill occur, however, until there is
enough business to warrant an open fight for
Rail Notes,
J. M. Hannaford has gone to Omaha.
The railroads all escaped with much less
trouble than they expected to when the late
snow storm commenced. In consequence
of the high wind that prevailed over all the
lines it was generally expected that the snow
that fell would be badly drifted, and conse
quently that the snow would be piled
up on the tracks in such quantities
and with so much solidity that nothing would
follow but delayed trains, and roads aban
doned, The railroad men looked blue on
Monday night and Tuesday morning. The
bright sun of yesterday morning dispelled all
such ideas, and showed that the storm pro
duced no serious difficulty. The trains on
all the roads managed to come pretty near
being on time, and no serious difficulty was
The Chicago & Northwestern and the St*
Paul & Omaha have been advised by the Penn
sylvania company that it is now prepared to
receive or forward freight of any kind for
Pittsburg or points east. The Pennsylvania
company will not receive freight for Cincin
nati proper or points via Cincinnati.
A New York Fog.
New York, 13.—A fog this morning
caused serious impediment to the navigation
of the port and rivers. The long ferries
were all suspended, and 6hort lines had to
run at slower speed.
Senator Sherman Gives His Opinion
Upon Silver as a Basis of
the Currency.
Mr. Warner Wants to Know Why the Ap
propriation for the Ohio Distress Took
So Long to be Signed.
Tlie Senate.
Washington, Feb. 13.—Senator Voorhees
offered a resolution, which went over to
morrow, directing the secretary of the inte
rior, to withhold for the present his approval
to patents on certificates for lands selected
by the Northern Pacific railroad, in lieu of
others, said to have been lost by said com
pany under the act of July 1864.
A preamble to the resolution sets forth,
that the right of settlers might be injuriously
affected by such approval.
The senate is discussing McPhcrson's
bill concerning national bank circulation.
Senator Pendleton introduced a bill to
grant condemned cannon, to be used in the
construction of a statue to the memory of
Gen. Wm. II, Lytle, of Ohio.
The senate took up the special order for
the day. Senator McPhei'son's bill was re
ported by Senator Bayard, from the commit
tee on finance, to provide for the issue of
circulating notes to National Banking asso
ciations, and Bayard addressed the senate in
favor of the bill. He said the bill reported
was entirely in the line of the absolute secur
ity to the holders of our currency. It went
to assist, protect and continue an absolutely
safe currency, It was the business of con
gress to maintain such a scrupulous regard
for the public credit, that the fact that a bond
is to be paid according to its face, and its
terms would never be doubted by
any man. When congress hail done
that, let private speculation take up the game
of profit and loss, that was to accrue from it.
Congress should have nothing to do with
such schemes.
Senator Sherman offered an amendment,
providing that if any of the bonds deposited
should be at a rate of annual interest higher
than 3 per cent., additional circulating notes
should be issued equal in amount to one
half the interest accruing on such bonds,
before their maturity, in excess of 3 per cent,
per annum, such amount to be ascertained
and stated by the comptroller of currency on
the 1st of July in each year hereafter. Sher
man then proceeded to address the senate,
and in the course of his remarks, expressed
the following views concerning the 6ilver
question: He saw no solution of it at pres
ent. The state of public opinion fully rep
resented in congress would not allow the
suspension of the coinage of the silver dol
lar nor the adoption by the United States of
a new ratio for the coinage of silver and
gold according to market values. All we
could do was to drift along until the inevita
ble exportation of gold, its disappearance from
circulation and its conversion into an article
of merchandise should reduce all values to
a silver standard, when, no boubt, the prac
tical good sense of our people would lead
them to coin both metals according to their
value, and not according to their value fifty
years ago. He would not allude to the silver
question except as it was connected with
banks and banking. It was already casting
its shadow upon the future. It was
rapidly converting our railroad
securities into bonds, expressly
payable in gold coin. It was
creating a"distrust iu the investments made
upon a gold basis, which sagacious men
kuew would by the failure of crops or bank
ing houses or by some unforeseen event sud
denly bring us to the silver standard. The
doubt would then arise—it had already arisen
whether in the adjustment of a new ratio
between gold and silver, the quantity of sil
ver in the dollar would be increased or the
quantity of gold wruld be reduced, The one
or the other would have to be done. As this
question was decided so would the nominal
pfice and value of all lands, commodities, in
vestments, securities aud currency rise or
fall. A question so controlling as this did,
and would effect banks and banking in all
their phases and forms, but he believed it
to be utterly impossible in
this session to change the existing
law as to the coinage of silver. We
would have to go on coining, andpilingup in
the treasury vaults the silver that we now
bought at a discount, which we could not
calculate, and which we must at some time
sell at a discount, or reduce all other money
to the same standard. Until this standard
was finally settled coin certificates were dan
gerous forms of currency. While all certifi
cates were, as now, treated as gold certifi
cates, they would be freely taken as the
equivalent to each other, but with the first
appearance of difference in the market value
between gold and silver coin, some
difference would appear between gold and
silver certificates, and the gold certificate
would disappear from circulation and be
hoarded. Senator Sherman then went on to
speak of the difficulty in maintaining the cir
culation of the national banks, because of
the rapid payment of United States bonds
outstanding, their prices, etc. He alluded to
the fact that even in the darkest hours of
the panic of 1873 our bonds never varied
more than six or seven per cent. In conclu
sion, Sherman advocated his amendment.
Senator McPherson spoke in support of
his bill, and then the senate went into exec
utive session and soon adjourned.
The House of Representatives.
Washington, Feb. 13.—Mr. Warner offer
ed a resolution directing the committee to
make inquiry why the resolution, passed on
Monday, for the relief of the sufferers by the
Ohio floods, was not sent here for the signa
ture of the presiding officer until late yester
day afternoon. He desired to know why so
much valuable time was lost.
Mr. Cosgrove hoped the committee would
also inquire why the house debated the joint
resolution an entire day, when it could have
been passed in ten minutes. The resolution
was referred.
The house proceeded to the consideration
of the Mississippi contested election case of
Chalmers vs. Manning.
Mr. Turner, of Georgia, chairman of the
committee on elections, spoke in support of
the majority report, which declares that on
the prima facie case neither of the contest
ants was entitled to the seat. Neither the
majority nor minority report was signed, but
Turner stated that ten members pf the elec
tion committee was in favor of the former,
while only five supported tho latter.
Mr. Elliott spoke in favor of the minority
report, which declares Manning entitled to
the seat on the prima facie right.
Mr. Curtin offered a resolution recommit
ting to the committee on elections the ques
tion of prima facie right to the seat, with in
structions to ascertain and report whether
the certificate of election was issued by the
governor of Mississippi to any one, and if
so, to whom.
Mr. Robertson, of Kentucky, spoke in
fovor of the minority report, and against the
action of the majority, in going behind the
governor's certificate. He would say in the
florid language of his friend Soe Blackburn,
he meant the senator elect, that Manning's
credential was as legal as though borne by
an angel from heaven itself, and bore the
sign title of Jehovah bimself. After further
debate the matter went over until to-mor
Mr. Harmer presented petitions in favor
of pensioning Union soldiers, who suffered
in Anderson ville, Libby, Belle Isle, or other
confederate prisons. Referred.
The speaker laid before the house a letter
from the secretary of the navy transmitting
the amounts claimed by the contractors for
the care of double turreted monitors. They
aggregate $278,645. Referred. The house
then adjourned.

[Special Telegram to the Globe.]
Washington, Feb. 3.—Four years ago
every Republican aspirant for the presidency
was eagerly crowding to the front as though
he was afraid of being forgotten if he allow
ed himself to be lost to public view for five
minutes. The result was that all these pre
vious gentlemen got run over, trampled on
and crushed to death by the horde behind.
The events of 1S80 are still vividly remem
bered by able statesmen, and this accounts
for the fact that they are so backward about
coming forward. All the old stagers, all the
managers and assistant managers who ex
pected engagements long before this as
manipulators, as president boomers are de
claring with rueful countenances that they
never saw a campaign so late in starting.
Every Republican who yearns for the presi
dency now is busy looking the other way, and
pretending that he is so very much engaged
about something else, or so very happy with
his present life, that he can't think about
the White house. With a single exception
nothing frightens them so much as to hear
their friends mention them for the presiden
cy. So far as
is personally concerned, he is as discreet as
any of the rest of them. He refuses to talk
about the presidency aud makes no open dis
play of his honorable ambition. But he has
a lot of friends who never tire of talking
about his candidacy as though he were al
ready nominated. He has more cautious
friends who are worried about this, and in
private conversation express their grave fears
that the senator will be killed off by these too
talkative gentlemen, who are as
sincere as they are injudicious in their advo
cacy. The general is an open fighter. His
voice is stillfor war; of wile's more inexpert
he boasts not, and he is not a manager; he
is no wire puller. He has always had the as
sistance of able politicians, but finesse is an
unknown art to him, and he has no knack
for getting his arrivals out of the way < >f
getting them to fighting, and in the
meanwhile posing as the friend
of both. Here is where he
is at a disadvantage as compared
with some other Republican candidates.
Most of them are trying to work up antagon
isms against the rest while keeping far
enough away themselves to be available as
is leading a very retired life and cultivating
the friendship of Logan and Arthur. If he
could encourage both of these gentlemen to
be open in their candidacy, and better yet,
to get their hands entangled
iu each others' hair It is
apparent that factional feeling would
prevent the nomination of cither of them
and it would be necessary for the party to
drag Mr. Blaine out of his modest hired
house on Lafayette square and put him into
the white house by violence. The president
is manging with extreme adroitness to avoid
the appearance of managing. He is qnietly
working the southern federal
patronage to a certain extent
through Chandler and Frank Ilatton, but
Chandler's department has no patronage to
speak of. The great engine that Johu Sher
man worked in the south last year is how ly
ing idle. It has been out out of any regular
and systematic use for so long that it has got
rusty. The treasury is not being used as a
political engine, and it will not be while
Judge Folger remains. The department is full
of Democrats and anti-Arthnr Republicans
and its direct pressure is not. exerted at all.
Here and there treasury employes are work
ing for a second term for Arthur, but they
are doing it on their own individual motion.
"The old barnacle," as a certain ambitious
politician once connected with the treasury
designated the present secretary, is simply
a cipher in politics and he
will not use his influence with
his subordinates for the purpose of working
up an Arrhur boom. John C. New would
have willingly staid in the treasury if he had
been allowed the
that his predecessors enjoyed and that used
to be accorded, and perhaps still are accorded
to Frank Hatton. He resigned because the
present administration of the treasury is non
political. A non-political office has no
attractions for him. President Arthur
knows that he would lose more votes than he
could get by having the government patron
age worked directly in his interest. The
bread and butter brigade can't in any case
be made large enough to amount to a ma
jority of convention and short of that is is a
decided detriment to candidates, because it
arouses dislike and animosity. Arthur rec
ognizes the fact that he can't get the presi
dency by going after it but that it may come
around within his reach if he keeps
real still and does nothing to scare it
away. That is the attitude of Edmunds and
several statesmen. Arthur, by the way, has
a good many friends in Edmunds' own baili
wick, New England, and several senators
from this section have said that their state
would send an Arthur delegation to Chicago.
"Arthur," said an experienced Republican
politician, "will either get the nomination
without any trouble or he won't get it at all.
That is why he is doing so little. If he shows
strength in his own state be will
get nomination. If New York is for him in
the convention, and it looks as if he could
carry that state in November, he will be
nominated at once. There is a story going
around here that machine men in Ne w York
have sent word to Arthur that he can have
the delegation from his state if he will re
move Brewster, but not otherwise, and that
consequently he is very anxious to
but does not know how to do it. Springer's
investigation open no way to do it, for
Springer's committee has thus far done
nothing but listen to reports of Brewster'3
own special agents who have already made a
very thorough investigation and very frank
reports. 'T do not see," said a gentleman
of the Democratic persuasion, but
Brewster is all right. I believe
the department of justice is the
only honest branch of the government. It
appears to have investigated with great full
ness and impartiality every accusation made
to it, and to have reported in all cases with
out fear or favor, and uninfluenced by per
sonal or political considerations. It
also appears that almost even
deputy marshal is a thief. The
trouble has been in the White House. Occa
sionally there is some talk here about organi
zation "of an Arthur boom in Illinois. There
are doubtless some republicans in Illi
nois, particularly in Chicago, who would like
to antagonize Logan in the latter's own
state and thereby get two or three delegates
and make forty men his determined oppo
nents, pledged to see any other man nomin
ated rather than him.
How much strength Gen. Logan has out
side of his own state is of course a very diffi
cult matter to estimate. He iB not popular
in New England or the middle states. In
the south he would get a good many dele
gates, but there are other gentlemen who
would get many southern votes. It is even
disputed that the west is as solidly for Logan
as bis friends are disposed to claim. Next
to Illinois Iowa is Logan's best state, but it is I
noticed that political leaders in Iowa are
friendly to his candidacy. Wisconsin has a
favorite son of her own named Lucius Fair
child. The old soldier vote is a potent fac
tor, but most of what is known in politics as
the old soldier vote is Republican anyway,
I and wiU vote for the regular nominee, while
j the grand army posts do not send delegate
to the convention. The Independent
vote is an important element, not
in nomination, but in election. It was
an important element in 1880, and it will be
more so in 1884. This vote would not go to
Gen. Logan. Probably on the other hand
Senator Logan has his own state very solidly
for him, and he has the Grant influence.
Probably Conkling would help htm. and
Conkling is still a great power in New York.
and it is almost universally believed that the
party that carries New York will cam- the
I country. Senator Logan has an enviable
j record in war and a clean
record in civil life. He is a man of strong
attachments and powerful individiality anil
therefore he has many devoted friends.
Of the Grant triumvirate of 1880 he is only
one who did not sulk when beaten but worked
for Garfield as cordially as he would have
done for Grant. He is open and above
board and has a useful faculty of striking a
popular chord frequently. The most serious
danger that thrcatngs him is the unseason
able advocacy of his friends.

The secretary of the interior sent to the
house of representatives to-day, an official
communication from the commissioner gen
eral of the land office In response to the
house request for informations regarding
certification of government and state lands
to the Atchison, Topcka A: Santa Fe Railroad
company. The Commissioner, after review
ing the whole subject of the grant at great
length, says: The lauds included in said
list are within ten miles of the line of the
railroad. They were granted by a state right,
which thereto became complete, when the
governor certified to the completion of the
road beside the same. They were free from
conflicting claims and passad to the state by
the terms of the grant itself. No approval
or certification was needed to vest in the
state the right of whieh the approval or cer
tification is but the evidence.
This office has considered the failure of the
Levenworth, Lawrence 6 Galveston, for
merly the Levenworth, Lawrence »t Fort
(iibson Railroad company, to complete its
road as authorising it to be withheld from
the Atchison, Topcka iS: Santa Fe company's
lauds, earned by said company, through the
construction of its road.
The house committee on public lands
failed to get a quorum this afternoon, aud
postponed the consideration of the question
of the forfeiture of the Northern Pacific land
grant until to-morrow.
