As chairman of the senate judiciary committee Senator EDMUNDS has taken upon himself the responsibility of de laying action in the case of Mr. Full er's nomination for chief justice. It is a grave responsibility to assume, and it is possible that although he is now pretty well advanced in life, Mr. Ed munds will live long enough to regret his course in this matter. The people of this country understand thoroughly the motive which prompted Mr. Ed munds to this course, and it will be treasured up against him. The public interests stand on one side In array against party advantage on the other. The supreme court is over crowded with business and the asso ciate judges are being overworked. The necessity for prompt action in this case is so apparent that argument is useless. If Mr. Fuller is not a fit man for the place the senate should say so and give the president opportunity to send a more acceptable name to that body. If Mr. Fuller is a fit man, then there should not be a moment's hesitation .in confirming him. That is the view the patriot and statesman would take. Rut there is another as pect of the case, as it is viewed solely from the standpoint of a narrow-minded politician. It is that Mr. Cleveland's term expires on the 4th of next March, and that in the meantime a presidential election will occur with a chance, though a slight one, that a Republican president may be elected. The parti san sees in this possibility a chance to gain one more partisan judge on a bench which is already overloaded with partisans. And it is this view of the case that Senator Edmunds takes. He prefers to have his name go down into history as a partisan leader rather than as a broad-minded statesman who can arise above a low party consideration in an emergency which affects the public welfare. It is well enough understood that there are no . valid objections to Mr. Fuller's confirmation. If President Cleveland is - re-elected the senate will confirm Mr. Fuller within three days after the opening of the next ses sion of con gress. So whatever may be the result of the presidential election, Mr. Edmunds will have detracted from his fame as a statesman, and at that period in life, too, when men are usually more anxious to gather laurels than to lose them. • :^ -■ V . m ■ f.»HH-W-»l-»...^-SIJ.J»-»S.

Norman Wolfred Kittson, who yesterday was Minnesota's oldest settler, is to-day numbered among the gallant band of pioneers who have passed over the river and are resting under the shade of the eternal trees. Though sudden, Commodore Kitt- SON'S death was not altogether unex pected. He had passed the allotted span of human life, and for several years had been in failing health. Still his demise will be none the less a source of profound regret to the great body of our people and to the very large circle of friends throughout the country to whom he was known and by whom he was loved. Minnesota never had a truer friend or a belter citizen than Norman W. Kitt son. His life has been interwoven with its history both as a territory aud as a state; his energies were directed toward developing its material resources and to the upbuilding of its capital city and metropolis; every pulsation of his noble heart beat in unison with the progress of the state and in loyal devotion to its highest interests. Commodore Kittson's distinguishing traits were his generosity, his public spiritedness and loyalty to his friends. "Wealth in the hands of such a man is always a public blessing. He was neither selfish nor sordid in the use of his money, but while making judicious investments, as any good business man would, he coupled with it an effort to advance the public welfare and to pro mote general prosperity. In his deal ings with his fellow men he was liberal to a fault. He dealt out charity with an unstinted hand and in the most un ostentatious manner. But one of the sub limes! illustrations of the nobility of his nature was his fidelity to his friends. No one ever had cause to hold his friendship doubtful. The long and useful life is now ended. The pioneer who saw the star of empire first rise in the Northwest, and whose days were prolonged until he saw this fertile section peopled with its millions, and who contributed so largely during his eventful life to give shape and force to surrounding events, has at length lain down to an eternal rest. He was on his way home to seek repose amidst the scenes of his early attachments and early triumphs when .. death overtook him. The day was closing and the even ing shadows were coming gently* on when the curfew of life was tolled. The night came, but for him it was full of stars more beautiful than the day, for his labors were ended and he was resting at home. Mr. Kittson lived with the affections of friends clustering around him, and he died honored, revered and mourned by the people of the city and the state in whose develop ment he had rendered conspicuous service. —BmSßßaßSUm————Bßß———B IM — — 1 I ■ — ■ Mil ■ — THE WET WEATHER. In addition to being something of a phenomenon in this dry Minnesota cli mate of ours, the present spell of wet weather threatens to be a downright calamity. We are now in the third week of an almost continuous rain and with no encouraging prospect of a let up. In some countries, such as Califor nia, for instance, a three weeks' rain would be a matter of but little conse quence because they are used to it, and always look for it at stated seasons. But here in Minnesota, where the rainfall for a whole year does not usually aver age what it ha* been the last three weeks, a wet spell, such as we are now afflicted with, puts us out of joint. It paralyzes business in the cities and plays havoc with fanning arrangements out through the country. The wet spell set in before the farmers were through with their spring seeding. There are a great many unsowed fields in the North west, and unless there is a let up soon the crop of spring wheat will be cut short. The ground keeps so wet the farmers are unable to plow for corn and potatoes. Our advices from the East and South report a spring drought in those sections. Thus it is ■ that nature sometimes makes unequal distribution of its bounties. One section is being dried up and another one. is being drowned out. ' .■".-. . . ■ ■ . MONTANA CATTLE. The complaint which some of the Montana cattlemen are making against the quarantine laws, through whose op eration they are prevented from bring ing cattle into the territory from Texas,* is.from their standpoint, natural enough. The loss of cattle induced by the sever ity of the winter of two years ago fell the heaviest upon the stock owners whose herds were composed of Texas cattle. They naturally look toward Texas cattle for the replenishment of their stock. But it may well be doubted whether the importation of Texas cattle is advanta geous to the stock interests of the terri tory at large or to the better interest of the individual stockmen themselves^ Indeed, the veteran cattlemen of the territory do not hesitate to declare such importation to be distinctly disadvan tageous. The Texas cattle, accustomed to a mild climate, are unable well to withstand the rigors of Northwestern winters, even when they are brought in early in the spring. Cold weather, by which the native Northwestern cat tle are not in the least inconvenienced, often proves fatal to them. The annual death rate among them is always larger than with the other stock. Nor do the beeves from Texas herds command as satisfactory prices as those from the native Montana stock, which is recognized to be unexcelled. Besides THE SAltf PAUL DAILY : G^M^^lDA^Mol6S^Gi : MA? ft* ■ 188& this fact, there is said to be among Texas cattle a prevailing tendency to ward disease' ..which. -may at any time manifest itself and thus jeopardize the stock interests of the whole territory. Unless it is shown beyond the shadow of a doubt that the cattle in Texas are in every way as healthy as those in Mon tana, it would seem that the removal of the quarantine regulations would be un wise in the extreme. HONORING CARLISLE. There is no man in the Democratic parly who is more worthy of honor than Carlisle, of Kentucky. There is none who has more conclusively proven his unselfish devotion to the party's inter ests, a devotion that has been given at the sacrifice of dearly cherished per sonal ambition. It has recently been developed that on two occasions within the year lias Speaker Carlisle been given an opportunity to' go upon the supreme bench. It has been • the one ambition of his life some day to wear the gown of a supreme court justice. ! But iv offering him the coveted posi tion, ii is said, the president so strongly impressed upon him the necessity, from a party standpoint, of his remaining in his present position that he put aside his personal wishes, discarded the op portunity of a lifetime and remained where he is— at the head of the house of representatives. In his decision the country lost an exceptionally valuable man from the supreme bench, but it is assured the retention of one in a post of the . utmost responsibility, who, while at all times loyal to his party, has demonstrated his patriotism to be stronger than his party feeling. Carlisle's friends are as numerous on the Republican as on the Democratic side of the house, and though they all recognize his fitness for further prefer ment, there would be universal regret experienced upon seeing him relinquish the office which lie has administered with an impartiality little short of wonderful. -«■■ YOUNG DEMOCRATS. If those self-constituted leaders of the Democracy in this state, or those who are recognized leaders by force of nat ural ability, are wise this year in the state conventions and the nominations made, they will liberally recognize the young element in the party. They will wisely distribute or select delegates or candidates who not only represent the patty machine, but those who are rep resentative young Democrats, and against whom but one charge can be made, and that that they are not pro fessional politicians. It is not going too far to say that in the past (lie Democracy of the state has been slow in recognizing the junior ele ment of the party. Democratic "war horses" are being honored daily, but the war is over. Turn the "war horses" into pastures sweet with . clover, and . bring out the young and racing stock. The Republicans with their league or organizations might have captured a heavy young men's vote in Minnesota had they not made it binding upon every man joining that league to support who ever the party nominated and whatever platform he stood upon. This is repug nant to the independence of youth. It smacks of Grant and Blaise and Dorset stalwartism. : Let the Democracy be wiser. Invite the young men of the party into coun cils and conventions, and make their enthusiasm a strong card for the year's work. Let the party pay less attention to official patronage and more to a healthful organization. THE FAVORITE SON RACKET. The favorite son business is being overdone this year. That is, it would be if there was not a method in it. But when we come to investigate this favor ite son business we discover evidences that it is a part of a- preconcerted scheme, which, if successful, is to inure to Mr. Blaise's benefit. When the Republican convention con venes in Chicago next month there will scarcely be a state north of MASON and Dixox's line but will be represented by delegates with instructions to present the name of its favorite son, and. with the possible exception of Ohio, not one that will have a ghost of a show for the nomination of its candidate, or that will be in earnest about pressing his name. Phelps and Ixgalls and Rusk and Dii-iwand Harrison and the whole batch of them will be piled up on the convention in a mass of confusion for the single purpose of producing com lications that can only be straightened out by ink's nomination. «a» . ILLINOIS DEMOCRAGr. The Democrats of Illinois have made up their mind to run Assistant Post master General Stevenson for gov ernor. All that is needed to carry this programme into effect is to obtain Mr. Stevenson's consent. The wisdom of this movement on the part of the Illi nois Democrats will be justified by the results, for it is almost certain to bring Illinois back to its natural Democratic moorings. Mr. Stevenson is a man of recognized ability and of great personal popularity. Being a part of the admin istration, he would be looked upon by the Illinois people as the embodiment of Mr. Cleveland's low tariff opin ions. If there is a state in the Union that has cause to be anti-protective, it is Illinois. With Stevenson for a can didate on the platform of Cleveland's message the Democrats ought to sweep the state. SURE OF ELECTION. The Fourth District" Undoubtedly Democratic Still. Winona Herald. While Mr. Rice's refusal to serve an other term in congress is a very heavy blow to his constituents, the talk of Re publican newspapers that it ensures the election of a Republican congressman is absurd. There is no question but that Mr. Rice is by far the strongest man in the Fourth district. Still the Demo cratic party has plenty of available tim ber. There is Bob Smith, just elected mayor of St. Paul by nearly 20,000 ma jority, a man who was never beaten for any office, and who can always get ; several* thousand majority in St. Paul, lie could be elected easily. Next to Edmund Rice, Bob Smith is the great vote winner of St. Paul. Then there is Judge Flandrau and C. D. O'Brien, either of whom would make an aggres sive fight and well represent the district. In Minneapolis Eugene M. Wilson and Dr. Ames, in Stillwater, Senators Cas tle and Durant. As Minneapolis will furnish the Republican candidate, Dem ocrats will hardly turn to Stillwater, al though both Durant and Castle are good men." Mayor Smith would be certain of election if St. Paul can spare him. Bleeds the West. St. Louis Republican. Manufacturing New England pos sesses enormous wealth— the result of the twenty-six years of bleeding that the agricultural states have been sub jected to for its benefit. New England not only owns itself, but a large part of Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, lowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Kansas and Colorado. Undressed Literature. Omaha Republican. The criticism of Miss Rives' literary work is that, like the dresses in which she has her picture taken, it is decidedly low-necked. ?y-'.'"'\-.i "■: STATE CONVENTIONS Tennessee, Maryland, Ver mont and Michigan for Cleveland, And Declare for Tariff Reform, • and Reduction of "\ Taxes.

The platform heartily indorses President Cleveland's adminis tration and urges bis re-elec tion: favors such tariff revision as will reduce taxation to the needs of the government economically adminis tered; declares in favor ot a strong li cense law with local option prohibition; charges the Republican party of the state in favoring prohibition laws and neglecting to enforce them ; sympathizes with Gladstone and the Irish in their ef forts to secure home rule for Ireland, and denounces the British, government for its "flagrant disregard of the spirit of magna eharta in suppressing free speech and peaceful agitation." IN TENNESSEE. Democratic Rule Indorsed With Cheers. Nashville, Teuu., May 10. —The Democratic state convention reassem bled at 9 o'clock, Chairman W. V. Houston in the chair. A resolution was introduced criticising President Cleve land for allowing Republicans to re main in office, which was promptly tabled on motion of ex-Congress man Casey Young, of Memphis. Cheers were given for Mr. Cleve land with a will. The convention then went into the election of four dele gates from the state at large to the na tional convention at St. Louis. Hon. A. M.

Grand Rapids, Mich., May 10.— The state Democratic convention was called to order by Chairman Weston, of the state central committee, L. G. Ruther ford was chosen temporary chairman. The Republicans have named Alger, said the chairman, expecting old soldiers will follow him. but they will not. He charged to the Republican party the destruction of the| merchant marine, the rise of the tramp and ,of strikes. He aroused cheers for Voor hees and hisses for Ingalls. When he said "God bless Grover Cleveland,'' the applause that followed was tremendous and lasted fully thirty seconds. Judge Miner was chosen temporary secretary, and after appointing the usual com-' mittees the convention took a recess until 2:30. On reassembling the tem porary officers were made permanent. 1. M. Weston, of Kent; George L. Yaple. of St. Joseph; M. M. Chamber-! lain, of Wayne, and Peter White, of. Marquette, were elected as delegates at large to the St. Louis convention.

Jh I Washington, May 10.— Gen. A. E. Stevenson, first assistant postmaster! general, in response to an inquiry from Hon. James S. Ewing. a member of the Democratic state central committee of j Illinois, has written the following letter declining to allow his name to be pre sented to the Democratic state conven- ! tion as a candidate for the office of gov; i ernor: »\ ashington. D. C. May 10.— Hon. James S. Ewing, Bloomington. Til.—, ! Dear Sir: Some days since, in response, I to the inquiry of a representative of one of the leading journals of- Chicago, 1 stated that, while I was not in any sense a candidate for the Democratic nomina- I tion for governor of Illinois, yet if uom-. mated 1 would hardly feel at liberty to | decline. At that time I had little reason | to suppose that I should be seriously, | thought of in that connection. I have j since given the matter careful reflec- j tion, and in justice both to myself and others, lam compelled to request that my name be not presented to the -con vention as a candidate tor that office. I deem it but just to those who have, so kindly ; mentioned me for - this great office to make public at once my deci sion in advance of the meeting of the convention.. The flattering manner in which I have been referred to in many of the leading ' papers of the state, as well as in private letters received, will be one of the pleasant memories of my life. Yours very truly, . •_ .. ; A. E. Stevessox. INGALLS' RECORD. What the Files of His Old Paper Will Show. Kansas City, May 10.— nation is on* the tip-toe of expectation for the coming speech by Mr. Vooreees May 17. That it will be a scorcher goes without 'saying, but that it will show up Ingalls' "copperhead" record is almost beyond belief, but, strange to say, absolutely true. One of the queerest discoveries made was that the war time files of In galls' paper, the Atchinson Champion, •have recently disappeared from the his torical society rooms at Topeka. In 1862 it will be remembered that Ingalls ■ was on the opposition Republican ticket ; for lieutenant governor. .He was de feated in the election, as his ticket stood j fairly and squarely opposed to the pres ident's emancipation proclamation. The i Republican central committee issued an j address to the loyal voters of Kansas, ! which closed as follows: "If there is a i man in the state who thinks more of Jeff Davis than he does of Lincoln his vote is certain for this ticket." The re sult of the election was disastrous to In galls. He carried but three counties, and out of 2,000 soldier votes he got a bare 200. On the evening before the election of 1864 the Leavenworth Con servative said: "There is not a traitor in Kansas but what will vote for Thatcher and Ingalls to-morrow. ■•- LEXINGTON RACES. Some Good Work Shown by Galli fet. Lexixgtox, Ky., May 10.— at tendance at the fourth day's races of the Kentucky association was not as large as on the preceding days. The falling off was due to the fact that the Melbourne stable had practically a walkover for the Blue Ribbon stake, Derby distance. This event has been for years the most popular race of the spring meeting and the winner of this stake has always been regarded as the probable winner of the Kentucky Derby. Gallifet, of the Melbourne stable and a prominent Derby candidate, was worked a mile and a half this morning, with McCarty up, in the fast time of 2 ::*>.'-;. First race, purse ?300, winning allow ances, three-fourths of a mile— Starters: Wary, 110, Barnes; Princess Blondina, 103, Taral; Little Sis. 94, Britton; Don Regent. 80, Freeman; Jacqueliu, 07, Allen. The flag fell at the second at tempt. Catalpa took the lead with Prin cess Blondina second and Wary third. As they passed the half Princess Blondina went to the front, with Don Regent sec ond, the rest bunched close up. As they reached the three-quarters Barnes had sent Wary up to second place. Up the hill they went, and as they turned into the stretch Princess was leading by half a length. In a few strides Barnes had sent Wary to the front, and, after a driving finish, Wary won by a scant length, Don Regent second, two lengths in front of Princess Blondina third. Time,l:lo>.j.

Second race, the Blue Ribbon stakes,. for three-year-olds, one and one-half miles — Melbourne stables had two entries posted— The Lion and Mont pelier. They concluded Montpelier was good enough to best Cast Steel— other entry— so The Lion was scratched. McCarty had the mount on Montpelier and Taral piloted Cast Steel. When Starter Caldwell tapped the drum Cast Steel sprang to the front, and at an easy pace they passed the stand, Cast Steel leading by four lengths. Around the first turn McCarty, on Montpelier, was the same distance behind. As they raced to the half McCarty moved up, and as the half mile was passed was within one length of the leader. Mc- Carty commenced to ride, and when the stretch was entered he was seen to raise his arm and the whip descended, and he kept it going until the distance stand was reached, when, as Cast Steel was running by, he gave it up, and Cast Steel went under the wire winner by two lengths.

After several breakaways the flag fell to a straggling start. Maud Ward was leading by a length, Rollin Hawley second and Brandolette third. They raced past the three-quarters without any change. As they moved up the hill and entered the stretch Brandolette had taken second place. Half .way down the stretch Lincoln came rapidly from the rear, where he had been trailing, and made nlav for the leaders; at the distance stand Cov ington sent him to the front, and he dashed under the wire winner by a length and a half from l.cola, who was half a length in front of Maud Ward, third.

As the horses passed the three-quarters Ray sent Marchma to the front, Mahon ing second and Volatile third. Half way down the stretch Kociusko moved up to second place, while Marchma was gradually drawing away, and he passed the wire winner, eight lengths in front of Kosciuso, second, who was three lengths ahead of Volatile, third.

Washington, May 10.— During the tariff discussion in the house to-day Mr. Clements, of Georgia, asked what pro tection was doing for labor. The Amer ican iron master got his labor as cheaply as he could even if he had to go into, other countries for it, even if he had to employ Pinkerton detectives to keep fcls laboring men of America from revolting against him. That was the practical il lustration of the great sympathy felt for labor. The talk about organized labor being peculiar to the North and not to the South was meaningless. There had risen up in the South to-day great or' ganizations or federations of farmers. There were labor unions of one kind or another, too. All of them were th° o growth of the condition in "TiJ-hich the American people were placed to-day under the system of taxation. They were not peculiar to one section or another. They were pe culiar to the distressing conditions which surrounded the laboring men of this entire country, and were only an indication that they were seeking in this way and in that, in every way. to better their condition. He adjured the gentlemen on the other side to abandon their discussion of the Confedifate constitution and of slavery, and to deal with this vital question, which con cerned the people of the vihole country. There had been inaugurated in fids country a system of investment which would make the debtor class of the United States, North and South, as de pendent as the Irish were to-day Money in great sums was being loaned ou lands by associations, and the result would be that the great mass of our peo ple would, at no distant time, be turned out of their homes, and the real estate of the country, like the money, would be accumulated iv the bauds of the few.
