tHE IMMIGRATION PROBLEM.
; Democratic Platform. Section 12. We
heartily approve all legitimate efforts to pre
vent the United States from being used as
. the damping ground for the known criniuals
- oud protessional paupers of Europe, and we
* demand the riijid enforcement of the laws
/against Chinese immigration and the 1 im
:'. l>ortalioii of foreign workmen under con
tract to degrade American labor and lessen
its wages; but we [condemn and denounce
■* : any and all attempts to restrict the immigra
tion of the industrious and worthy of foreign
lands. '■■• - ; ; - ■ •■
.. America for Americans and for those
\vho merit the honor of becoming Amer
< icans. That is the Democracy's solu
tion of the i 111 migration problem. A
hearty welcome to all who ■- come with,
clean hands and willing hands to work
out thetr future in -the new world, but
no admittance for the scum and filth of
* r .Europe and Asia. Plenty of room for
honest men who come prepared tc up
' hold American conditions and institu
tions, but no room for the. men who
■would come "under contract to degrade
American labor and lessen its wages."
The contention that this country is
becoming crowded and should shut its
; "against all ■; immigration, even of
V. the be?t class, is manifestly absurd. Its
absurdity is strikingly illustrated ,by
": the fact that the entire population of
the country could be emptied into Texas
without compelling that state 10 support
. a larger per acre population than Rhode
Island does today. Evidently there is
room, here for yet unborn generations
• from the crowded countries of the old
world, but nevertheless it is advisable
; to begin even now selecting the best
and rejecting the unworthy. American
•citizenship is too precious a privilege
, to be lightly bestowed on all applicants,
good, bad or indifferent. Proofs of
s worthiness should be exacted, and then
the welcome should be all the more
..hearty for that it had been shown to be
deserved. -This is the policy to which
the Democratic party pledges itself. It
is a policy which merits the indorse
ment of all American voters. ;•
THE PEOPLE'S PARTY.
In all estimates of November results
the People's party requires respectful;
consideration. . It will not win, but it
.will have a decided influence in deter
mining who shall win.
The man to be nominated at Omaha
; today will not be president, but he may
be a Warwick. The pretensions of the
"Populists" will stand a good deal of
trimming down around the edges, but
they cannot be pooh-poohed entirely out
of existence. Even though it fail to se
cure the electoral vote of a single state,
the People's party will yet make its in
fluence felt at the' polls, and in a way
that cannot but be favorable to Demo
cratic success.
In Indiana, Illinois, lowa, Wisconsin,
.Nebraska and Kansas, all of which
states have returned majorities against
the Republican party's nominees in re
cent local elections, the People's party
will cut into the Republican strength
and materially increase the chances for
Democratic victory. . But it is probable
that the People's party will give even
more valuable assistance to the Dem
ocracy by wresting from the Repub
lican column the electoral votes of one
or all of the silver Colorado,
Nevada,., ldaho, Wyoming and South
Dakota. ~ -v- .
In the first and last named of these
States the conditions are especially
favorable to the success of the People's
party. Colorado is in open rebellion
Bgajust.the silver planks of both the
Democratic • ' and Republican parties,
and the chances are that it will give its
electoral votes to the third party on the
free coinage issue. In South "Dakota
the free coinage following and the
Farmers' Alliance" strength will com
bine in . behalf of the People's party
candidates, and if, as is now contem
plated, the Democrats in that state
abstain from 1 nominating ; presidential
Electors, the state will almost certainly
be carried for Che man to be nominated
Jtoday.at Omaha. ',.. ...
Colorado will have four votes in the
electoral coHeire., and -South Dakota
four. Add to . these eight • votes : the
three votes of Wyoming, the three votes
Df Nevada and tin; threi* votes of Idaho.
md the tola! is aeveuteeij electoral .
. rotes which Ihe People's parly is justi
jied in claiming it can win from the Re
publican?. .
On "tliij- other ham!, the third party
cannot draw from the Democratic
strength to the extent of a single elec
toral vote. The solid South will be
solidly Democratic still ; in the Eastern
Democratic states .; the People's party
will cut ho appreciable figure, and in
the Western states the Democracy will
be helped : greatly more than it cau bo
hurt by the People's party movement.
On the whole, the Democracy sends
cordial meetings .to' the People's party
in convention at Omaha, and expresses*
its entire approbation of the work to
be done there today. "

THE * OURTH OF JULY.
The. Fourth of July is properly a day
of General festivity, and its deeper sig
nificance is not necessarily lost sight of
in the uproar and. confusion which
accompany its arrival. In the East,
where the distinctively American feel
ing: is more pronounced, the patriotic
features are made somewhat more
prominent. •'• The .'. Declaration of ' Inde
pendence, with its. vigorous arraignment :
of the English king's oppression,' is read ■
in many households in the morning
hours. • National songs are s\iug," and
orators are in great demand. -The
glorious d<?eds of our forefathers are ;
told anew wherever people gather, and
the fireworks which follow are a sort of '
incense burned to the memory of the !
men who made our country what it is. j
It is a. little different iv ; the new-
Northwest. We are less homogeneous
than our kin beyond the 'Alleglieriies, ;
and many of us have only. a: vague idea j
about the American light for freedom, j
Born under foreign flags and- reared to '
love other heroes, the images of Wash
ington and Jefferson are confused,
in. our minds with their features. .! Our
devotion to our homes and our institu
tions is not less real on this account.
No men were braver soldiers in the late
' war than those ; who went to the front
from our immigrant settlements. But
the feeling which." animates us is less
den:iite,more general, more impersonal.
In the 11 ness •of time . this • will
changed. The schools, the churches, the
political campaigns; waged year after
year, are welding us closer together.
We are leaving behihd "our .individual
traditions and learning those.which be
long to the soil on which we live. And
to this end occasions like our national
birthday me of great value. ■ The blare
of cannons ana the blaze of rockets call
our attention to the- beauty of trie ban
ner which floats above, us, and we are
inspired with an ambition to ;> know
whence came the stars and stripes as
our eyes are fixed upon them waving.
Nothing will stand , investigation 'or in
' quiry so nobly as our early hiscory.
Even our foes admire the -records writ
ten on its pages, and when our own citi
zens begin with earnestness to study it
themselves and teach it to their chil
dren, we shall rjo longer be : Germans,
Scandinavians,; Irish and French, but
one glorious Yankee people. t

i THE PROGRESS OP REFORM.
' That is a very pretty dispute i which
has sprung up between Hon. Coxkad
W. Mii.i.kk, city treasurer, and .lion.
Hkxky W. Cory, judge- of the munici
pal court, It appears that under the
Bell charter the judges of the munic
ipal court are required to make daily
reports of their official doings and to de
liver them "by their own baud" to the
treasurer, or such person as he shall
name to receive them. It further :p
--.pears that, in reckless violation o; t! c
law. Judge Cony, instead of spending a
half-day in riding up the" the.ccur:
house elevator himself- to the treasurer's
office, has been in the habit of sending
these important documents by a mes
senger. FjEttH^^fflfeyl^B
This was all very well in the days of
corruption and misrule, now happily
past; but it would not go down under a
"reform* administration. It is true
that the renorts reached their destina
tion all right enough, but that .was not
' the point. The statutesDrescribe that
the judges shall deliver them "by their
own hand," and Mr. "Miller, after
sound reflection,, concluded that he
would be false to his duty if he received
them when brought in any other way.
In this quandary he wrote to the city
attorney for advice. He stated the
facts, and inquired if a different method
of delivery would satisfy "the law. He
wanted to know whether it would be
sufficient should Judge Couy sweep the
reports into his office with the broom
which he used so -successfully in the
curling matches last winter, or should
kick them in after the manner of a foot
ball, in the punting of which he is re
ported to be very skiilful. He added, by
way of suggestion, that his own view
was azainst the. legality, of such proce
dare,becati36 the law said •'hand," and a
".land" is a hand v not foot or any oth
er member of the mortal body. • •
. Mr. La.wi.eb carefully looked up the
authorities on this question himself,
and conferred with Mr. Michaels, who,
having been in the Joiixsox-STAUKEY
building inspectorship case, has recent-,
ly gone over the whole range of human
knowledge. They decided that a "hand",
was not a foot, and that one's "own
hand" was not somebody's else. hand.
But they aid not quite see : what Mr.
Miller had to do with Judge Cory's.,
personal conduct, and so they addressed
a polite note to the treasurer, telling
him that, even though the judge might
confuse the various parts of his anat
omy, his own duty was very clear in
the premises, and that he had better ac
cept the reports, even it they were
blown into his sacred presence through
pneumatic tube. ""; / :'; .
It is needless to say that Mr. Miller
is not happy over this opinion. He did
not care for advice as to what he should
do himself. That is not what "reform"
is for. "Reform" applies always to the
other fellow. It is : therefore rumored
that he is contemplating an application
to the supreme court for a scire facias,
in order that tlic public may know why
the law is not complied with. The
Globe hopes that this will not be nec
essary, but that Judge Cory will yield.
No one has heretofore found him defi
cient in the qualities which make human
intercourse a pleasure; and for the sake
of good fellowship and in the interest
of amiability, he might just as well as
not make a daily trip, report in "hand,"
to the head of the court : house's first
flight of stairs. SSPHSB
if he does, another triumph will be
recorded for the new, regime, and the
wisdom of our late municipal upheaval
further vindicated. Mayor Weight has
been only a month in power, arid yet
some of the saloons are closed at 12
o'clock, which is but an hour after the
time fixed by law for that, purpose, and
a municipal judge will have been ar
rested in his pernicious practiice of
using a boy to run on his errands. If
the reform administration does nothing
further, it will not have existed in vain.

The Red Wing Journal lays down ; the law
as follows: "There is one thing that the Re
publicans must set down as a fact— that
is, whoever is selected, he must be acceptable
to the country districts, or there will bt; great
danger of defeat. .It is no time tor fooling
in this matter now. A. great cami»ai.?u is at
hand, and we must have a stronar state ticket
to assist in electing our already . strong na
tional ticket."
Says the Red Wing Republican: .."It has
been a puzzle to some people why "the plat
form of every Alliaace or Peoples party
■ convention' contains so much inner, so
many planks or resolutions. It is the appli
cation of the policy of putting in every res
olution on which some number of men have
got cranky. Then everybody is expected to
adhere to the party ou account of its indorse
ment of his own pet scheme, though he may
aiffer as to the other eighty-six articles."
"The Still water Gazette lets go a double-bar

that Attorney General Clapp or Hon. Knute
Nelson will be placed in nomination for gov
ernor. The' other fellows who have the
gubernatorial bee buzzing iv their vicin

not in it, if we can judge by popular opinion
of leading Republicans and the newspapers
of our state." •
The Lake Benton Sews has had an idol

"Well, we have heard the author of "Caesar's

not realized. We were disappointed, and so
was the crowd. There was no enthusiasm,
because there was nothing in the speech to
excite it. Donnelly belongs to the past.' His
speech did not contain a single new idea nor
an argument wocihy to bs called one. It was
simply an appeal to tho passions and preju
dices of the farmer. His stories of the beau
tiful and prolific black hen and the little ani
mal charged with stealing onions belong to a
long ago generation. As a politician Don
nelly is antique. We have scratched him

HURRAH FOR WHITNEY !
> Ex-Secretary -Whitney seems to have
worked the rabbit foot on the Tam
many leaders.— Memphis (Teuu.) Ava
lanche. '
Mr. Whitney was inaccurately known
hereabouts— where he was. generally
and indifferently, accepted, we believe,
as a rather nice and superior example
of the rich man In politics. That this
was a practical failure to appreciate the
ex-secretary's rare quality is sumciently
shown by the events of the convention
up to Chicago News;
Between the din of the 'contending
Democratic factions in New York the
name of William C Whitney, continues
to be heard with increasing "frequency.
As a cabinet officer under Cleveland he
made a creditable record in his efforts
to build up the 'navy, but what princi
pally endears him to the Democratic*
heart is the fact that lie is connected
with the Standard Oil company, and
could control wealth galore.— Denver
(Col.) Times.
There is a rumor that Tammany may
nominate Whitney for may "Whit,
ney certainly deserves something from
somebody, but we are unable to 'figure
out by our arithmetic that it is due
tro'ra Tammany. The Morning Adver
tiser has suggested Mr. Whitney as a
suitable candidate for mayor of New
York, but under, the present circum
stances we advice him to be wary.
Tammany may endeavoring to- lead
him into the shambles in return for
what he has done for Mr. Hill.— New
York Morning Advertiser.
With due appreciation for the efforts
of every one of the distinguished . gen

iam C. Whitney the assurances of our
most profound respect for the eminent
and brilliant qualities ot leadership that

_. There -are good men in every Minne

Throw personal preferences and per

parts of the state. Do not confine your
choice to or three localities. . The Second
district at present has three state offi

age Republicans other sections. ,;
It will not strengthen the Republic

Sixth, and the same in the First and

The Third congressional district will
be the political battlefield in this state
next fall. It is the only district the
Democrats ' will seriously attempt to
carry, and the '-'-"Republicans should
strengthen'- their brethren in that sec
tion at every opportunity. There are
two active candidates for positions on
the Republican state ticket in the dis
trict, and the claims of one should be in
dorsed. We refer to F. M. Wilson for
attorney general, and J. H. Ackerman
for state treasurer.

All political considerations aside.there
is one' thought running through the
minds of the American people today
creditable alike to the public head and
heart. This is the inspiration of kindly
•greeting to the bright-minded and beau
tiful woman who, as a bride aud mis
tress ot the White house a few years
ago, occupied a place in the esteem and
affeejions of tho American people not
exceeded by any president's wife since
the foundation ot the government.-. To
Mrs. Cleveland— and the hope and pride
of tha nursery as - well— there will go
out sincerest well wishes. The good
mistress of Gray Gables never permits,
herself to be intruded in any way into
the political arena, and during all the
excitement of the coming contest she
: will scarcely.be seen- and never heard.
But if the mutations of politics should
recall her to the historic mansion where
her presence was a perpetual charm and
delight, there will be a wave of congrat
ulation that will know no political
: bounds, no section, no class Hues of any
sort. To Frances and the baby the av
erage American citizen today presents
, his warmest compliments.

I look forward to a campaign in which
Cleveland's strength' will steadily in

will now rally to his support. What

may have been, they will do all in their
power to insure his success. "'. They ace

election as positively, certain. He will

' '....- An Object Lesson.
,PittsburßPost.
■ - The ironworkers of the country have
had a powerful object lesson in the way
of a demonstration of the fact that the
wages they get are not due to the high
'tariff policy of the Republican party,'
but to their own organization. The Mc-
Kinley bill raised the average of the so
called protective tariff from 43 to GO per
cent, yet the ironworkers ■ have been
asked to accept a reduction of wages
ranging from 20 to 60 per cent. As one
of the beneficent results of a high tariff,
how is this for high?
The Question That Interests Dana.
New York Sun. - -.
In the future Cleveland administra
tion will those Democrats be more fa
vored who have been against him or
those who have been for him? This is
an interesting question. Nevertheless,

retary of state, rather than for Henry
Watterson, of Kentucky.
Who Pays the Freight? '
St. Louis Post-Dispatch. . '■'■'.■■ -;_: ...
i; It was a mistaken belief that the rich
manufacturers contribute to Republican

IN THE MAGAZINES.
The Art Interchange for July comes
as richly freighted with good things as
ever. It is an illustrated guide for
amateurs and students, with hints for
all kinds of artistic work. In the art
notes the claim is made that the ma
jority of the sculptors, whose decorative
and monumental work tor the world's
fair so far as seen has already eiven
#reat satisfaction, are Americans by
birth and education. Many useful
hints are eiven in this number for sum
mer home decorations that will be in 1
valuable to those lucky people who
own cottages at the lakes. Each month
the Art Interchange gives two or three
colossal plates that are faultless, artist
ically speaking, and many naees of
designs for work, so that students fat
from art centers are no lonaer at a loss
for good models, and to the" influence of
the art magazines more than anything
else we owe the disappearance of those
highly colored monstrosities that a few
years ago represented all that the great
middle class knew of artistic form and
coloring.
The complete novel in Lippincott's
Magazine for July, "White Heron," is
by M. G. McClelland, and one of tho
quaintest and most cheerful mountain
stories that writer bus yet given her
leaders. The tale opens with a charm
ing legend of the Cherokee Indians,
about a long-hidden treasure cave,
which the hero Is destined to mend his
ways in tracing. Thu work progresses
with greater interest to the reader since
Jack Clive pursues at the same time the
equally absorbing task of making love
amid attractive surroundings, which
the author knows and let£ one feel so
well. In the Journalist Series, Max de
Lipman recounts "The Newspaper
Illustrator's Story," with the
help pf numerous illustrations.
In the Athletic Series, .W. P. Stephens
contributes an illustrated article on
"Canoe Lite." "Peary's North Green
land Expedition and the Relief" is well
and interestingly covered by those au
thorities on the expedition. W. E.
Hughes and Benjamin Sharp. Gertrude
Athorton contributes a short but clever
essay on "Geosraphical Fiction." Agnes
Repplier talks about the "Trials of a
Publisher" in her naturally readable
style. Robert Burns Wilson gives an
interesting review of Waitman Barbe's
volume ot poems, "Ashes and lucense."
Joel Benton tells of "An Old Boston
Magazine" established in 1842. and ed
ited by Nathan Hale Jr. The depart
ment "As It Seems" discusses the re
ception ot Julien Gordon's work abroad,
excess of cerebration, and Mr. Nye's
remedy, genius and labor, the gift of
expression, etc.
The Overland Monthly for June is a
fine number in both fact and fiction.
The difficult subject of volcanic cycles
in the great crater, Kilauea, Hawaii,
has been treated in an easy, graceful,
yet correct and scientific manner by
May L. Cheney, who went down into
the crater, where but few women have
ever gone, that two days afterward was
covered with molten lava. The illus
trations of this article are new, excellent
and varied, producing a longing to
spend the summer among the wonders
of the volcanic islands. Another Ha
waiian sketch of M. H. Ciosson's, The
Treasue Cave on Oahu, supplements
this volcano article well. Hawaiian
matters are well represented in the
Overland nowadays.
The illustrated article on "Track Ath
letics in California," by Philip R.
Weaver Jr., is the most elaborate and
careful treatment as a whole ever pub
lished. It shows that the California
boys are in the race. Schifferstein, of
the Olympic club.equals Cary,of Prince
ton's great 10-second run for* 100 yards.
Morrow, of the University of California,
with a record of 109 feet 1 inch, throws
the hammer farther than Finlay, or
Harvard, 107 feet l\i inches. The Cali
fornia runners have'not yet reached the
Eastern standard, though they make a
creditable showing. The illustrations
in this article are carefully selected to
show the characteristics of the several
champions, and are full of life. The
whole article breathes of the free air of
outdoor sport.
Mrs. Jenness-Miller's Illustrated
Monthly is just such a magazine as you
would expect it to ba after that bright
young disciple of the gospel of physical
progress and good looks tell of her
methods and beliefs, the correctness of
which her own perennial good looks
amply prove. The July number con
tains articles from the pens of such
writers as Foster Coates, George
Augustus Sala, Mabel Jenness and
Prof. C. V. Riley.
The little magazine. Two Tales, comes
every week with. two stories from our
most popular writers. This week we
have one of Octave Tlianet's character
istic Arkansas stories. Under the
touch or" her sympathetic hand the
patiios that underlie most human lives
look at you with pleading eyes, while
tne courage that gilds and glorifies the
self-sacrifice of the humble people or"
whom she tells strenethens one's hope
for humanity. The other is by
McCulloch Williams, and is bright and
airy, as its name, "Peas-Blossom,"
would suggest.
The July number of Rotna»ce is pe
culfarly suited to the season. An old
time Fourth-of-July story by Helen Lee
Sargent is one of its features, and tales
by Miss Mitford. F. W. Rooinson, Ed
moiid About, Alphonse Dauilet, Henri
Facet and Ernest D'Hervilly figure
among its contents. There are also
striking original sketches by Lieut.
J. H. Scott, Annie W. Sanborn and
A. G.Canheld. Romance is distinguished
for its excellent humorous stories, and
several appear most appropriately in
this hot-weather number. A half-dozen
graceful love stories vie with them in
amusement and interest. Two ghost
stories, several thriilinz narratives of
adventure, the exquisite pathos of '-The
Siege of Berlin," and the delicate droll
ery of "The Wizard of Plaisauce," com
bine to make the whole issue one of ex-'
traordinary- merit and attractiveness.
The magazine is issued by Romance
Publishing company, Clinton hall, Astor
place, New YorK. The price is 25 cents
a number; subscriptions, $2.50 a year.
The'usual complement ot good things
is to be found in the July number of
Current Literature, in spite of the fact
that the season drives most of the
magazines into the realm of fiction. It
will be seen lhai the scientific depart
ment has demanded more space than
usual and offers an enticing array of in
teresting things for those who are
practically inclined, among which are
to ba found articles upon the curiosities
of the depths of the sea. the wonderful
buildings of Chicago, the little men and
giants of the world as measured in
inches, and so on. The sportsman will
be delighted with the account of the
Jew fish, a gamey monster of the Pacific
coast, while lovers of art will note with
pleasure the account of the discovery of
the tomb of Aristotle. These are but
a tithe of the articles of the month,
which appeal to the taste of the general
reader or the person "who wishes to
keep pace with the latest phases of
research and thought;
Under the title of "Pickerel-fishing
in South Jersey," in Outing for July.
John Gilford describes the waterways
ot the historic "Pines," and proves that
even such humble quarry as the fresh
water sharks can be made to yield good
sport to anglers who aspire not to nobler
ffth.
"The Oar in the Northwest," by H.
W. Wack, in Outing for July, is a finely
illustrated article descriptive of aquatic
matters in the quadrangular rowing
association, which embraces among its
members the best blood and sinew of
Minneapolis, St. Paul, Duluth and Win
nipeg.
Lovers of the fleet sailing skiff will
find much to interest them in "The St.
Lawrence Skiff." by C. B. Yaux, in
Outinir for -July. The author handles
his subject welJ, and numerous illustra
tions of famous winners add to the
value of the text.
The July Magazine of American
History is a charming summer issue. It
opens with a picturesque article by the
editor, "Toe Beginnings of the City of
Troy," which contains among other
noticeable illustrations ,a full-page fac
simile ot the quaint old Dutch map of
the province ana city of New York,
made about ic.o<>. and an excellent poi
uait of the founder or the Renssefaer
iuiytedinic Institute at Troy. The.
second paper, i' entitled- "Fort Harrison
in History," by A..C. Duddleston, is a
graphic description of the old fort of
that name which William Henry Harri
son founded in Indiana, and its gallant
defense by Zachary Taylor In 1812, when
he was only a young captain of twenty-'
eight." ; The ; Pre-Columbian Litera
ture of America" follows, 1 a most oppor
tune and valuable study by the eminent
scholar, ; Prof. Cyrus Thomas. The
fourth contribution, "How England
Forced the Slave Upon America," Is
from our minister to Venezuela; Hon.
\ i William L. Scruge:s,who writes forcibly
and to the Doiut, saying: "Not one of
the original charters Under which the
colonial governments had been estab
lished contained anything that could be
construed into a grant of right to prop
erty in man." The Hon. S. H. M.Byers
presents an instructive historical sketch
of "Switzerland's '.- Model Democracy ;
or. Popular Government Without
Spoils," a paper that overflows with
suggestions to all who are interested in
unity and central govern irent. .
. A timely and very interesting. feature
of the current, number, of Harper's
Weekly is a series of illustrations of the
festivities - recently -he)d at Genoa in 1
honor of Christopher Columbus.-: These
illustrations include views of the new
-Columbus monument at Genoa and of
the house in which the great discoverer
was born, with portraits of Columbus
and ot Vespucci from the paintings in
the museum at Genoa. The same num-
L ber or the Weekly contains several illus
trations of the Democratic national con
vention in session at Chicago, including
a double-page picture of the interior of
the wigwam in which the meetings are:
held. Among other interesting features
are a characteristic story by John Ken
drick Bangs, entitled -'A Sea Tale." ap
propriately illustrated by A. B.Frost;
an illustrated ■ article on the new naval
observatory, and the conclusion of Hall
Caine's story, "Capi'n Davy's Honey
moon." v - , . . : . :\ ■ ;
Mary E. Wilkins contributes another
characteristic story of New England
life, entitled "A Stress of . Conscience,"
to the current number of Harue r's Ba
zar, published June 25.

NEW BOOKS.
Occasionally one comes across a book
that has all the characteristics of the
stories that charmed our childish day.The
same rough .men .with voices tuned to
the wind's wild roar, with fierce faces
and fiercer roads, ride rough shod over
their. panic stricken neighbors, but be
hind all this warlike exterior we knew
that we should find a tender heart. Such
a. book is S. Baring Gould's last story
"In the Roar of the Sea." The very
name recalls the days when hidden m
some secluded spot we sat with eyes
fast on ; the first page, but in spirit
roamed with the fierce wrecks, through
their '- smugglers cave* admired and
feared their dauntless * leader, or cow
ered with the poor : shipwrecked folks
dreading his coining. Capt. Coppinger,
the hero, is a disappointing sort of per
son, he is of very poor common clay,
and fails to recognize his opportunities.
Judith Trevisa is better, as in her love
for her feeble minded twin brother
rises to heroic action. The other char
acters are well drawn and life like, and
the book will do no one harm aud may
serve to while away an idle hour. .

"Courtlandt Laster, Capitalist," by
llarley Deene, is one of the §1.000 prize
stories that are to be issued quarterly
by Laird & Lee, of Chicago. Why this
particular story should have won a prize
is not at all clear to an ordinary reader.
The tone is low, the story bad and weak,
and for the sake of our common 'human
ity let us hope that the characters are
not drawn loin life. They are libels
on motherhood as well as manhood. A
story to be worth anything should either
instruct or entertain, either teach a
lesson or point a moral, aiul this one
does neither.. There is no good reason
for its being. Let us hope that the
nest prize that is given for the best
American novel will la. l into worthier
hands.
What a delight it is to find now and
then, among the flood of books that are
a weariness and. vexation to the soul,
one that leaves no unpleasant task in
the month— one that raises your opinion
of the world and of the men that make it
what it is. Such an one is this little book
of J.M.Barries "When a Man's Single."
All of Barries' men when they are
single are very single in deed and in
thought, and when they are married
are as very much married. All who
have been fortunate enough to enjoy
the "Little Minister" or "A Window in
Thrums," will take up this book with
that "prickings of the thumbs," that in
dicates the presence of a new delight.
Barrie is very Scotch, and has to an
unusual degree the subtle Scotch
humor, so delicate, so quaint that only
those who are of the same kin can
always see' it and" delight in it, Hob
Angus, the hero of this delightful sto
ry, is : a sawmiller at Thrums, tied by
duty to the mill and the hum-drum life,
but stillinsr the yearning of his am
bition by study that fits him
for the new life of written effort when
the new life comes.. To him from the
grey eyes of Mary Abinger, the daugh
ter of an aristocratic father, love called,
and like the called of old, "he straight
way left all and followed," through dis
couragement and ill success that like
Bunyon's lions stood on either side to
guard the way that led to happiness.
Your heart goes out to the royal youth,
who, when the tima was ripe so man
fully took his own. Dick Abinger. the
man who had "the successful writer's
instinct" so fully developed thai even
while overwhelmed with the rush of
regret at his, own fickleness, could see
in his mind's eye how the situation sug
gested a possible article for the scalping
knife, '(humorous); is so clearly drawn
that one feels sura that his . prototype
could be found in many a newspaper
office.'." . . \ ..
\ "Memoirs of 1 a Mother-in-Law." At

suffering class. ; mothers-in-law, have
; found a champion in George li. Sims,
and one 'tis who seems to know how to

teries why the simple act of living a
son or 'daughter to a stranger, by con
senting to a marriage, should be- so
universally acknowledged to transform
the whilom delightful hostess and gra

New York, July 3.— A truce, if not
peace, has been declared between th«
the New York Tribune and Typograph
leal Union No. C. The Tribune ma]
now be said to have been practical! j
declared a union office pro tern. , : Thai
is, it is a union office, and will remain
so unless Mr. Reid fails to carry out his
contract with the officers of the typo
graphical union. Positive assurances,
it is said, have been given that the
Tribune would be completely "union
ized" within a mouth. Typographical
Union No. 6 held an exciting meeting
today, at which the Tribune ', and th
action of the Minneapolis committee
were the chief subjects discussed. Pres
ident Kinney, who was at *. the 'head .
of the committee which: went to
Minneapolis, made ::a long ; report,
in which h*e explained k - the ac
tions of the committee. He : said : they
had. received satisfactory assur
ances that the Tribune would be
made a union office if they would
support Whitelaw Reid's nomi
nation. This they : did,- not officially,
but as . individuals. They could have
obtained no guarantee i of > securing the
Tribune for the union had they not
signed the document which has since
brought out so much adverse criticism.
President Kinney indignantly , repudi
ated the charges of bribery and corrup
tion which had. been hinted at in 'some
quarters, and declared that the commit
tee was actuated solely by the interests
of the union. A motion was then made
to express full confidence in the com
mittee, which, after a full and free dis
cussion, was passed by a vote .of 500 to
25. It was then stated in behalf of the
committee that the Tribune' would be
made a thorough union office inside of a
mouth. ' The • powers of the committee
negotiating: with ; the Tribune were
thereupon continued. . A report is ex
pected at the next meeting of the union,

.; The peculiar name of L our excellent
candidate for vice president is Hebrew,
and may be found in .. the twenty-ninth
verse of the twenty-seventh : chapter of
tin 1 first book of the Chronicles: r.,j.«
"And over "• the herds that ; fed in
Sharon was Shitrai the Sharonite: and
over the herds that were in the Valleys
was Shaphat, the son of Adlai."
The Adlai mentioned in the Chroni
cles flourished about 1,014 years before
Christ. The meaning of- \ the name is
differently stated by different writers.
McClintock and Strong say that Adlai
means the just, but Sophy i Moody, in
her popular account of the meanings
and derivations of Christian names. puts
Adlai in the group of names significant
of preciousness, and says that it means
"my ornament.". As to pronunciation,
Walker, in his rnles for the pronuncia
tion of Scripture proper names, marks
Adiai as a word of three syllables -thus,
Ad-la i. It is to be noted, however.
that in the Latin Vulgate the name is
spelled as a word of only two syllables
—not Adlai, but Adli: — ■: " -
"Porro artrientis. qu;e pascebaritiir in
Saton, -prsepositus fuit Setrai Saronites;
et super boves in vallibus Saphat filius
Adli." :—;..-,.: ..
. Moreri spells the name either AdUl
or Hadlai, and puts a diuresis over the
last vowel to indicate that the name is
to be pronounced in threa syllables.

Wilson of West Virginia.
Chicago Post.
Mr. Wilson is a small, slender man,
but with a bearing at once dignified, in
dependent and assuring: His gray
mustache and hair are in harmony with
strong, intense and interesting face.
His sentences, whether in private con
versation, in addressing an audience or
when he writes, or not of the rolling,
rotund, sententious sort that leave no
trace behind them. He never fails of a
climax, and even in ordinary conversa
tion his utterances abound in brilliant
epiirrams. He is exceptional in be"in»
at once impressional, staunch and self
:commanding, and has certainly demon
strated himself one of the ablest men of
the convention. In this connection it is •
interesting to note that the men of suc
cess in this distinguished body of Demo
crats have been for the most part short
and of nervous, wiry make-up. After
all. the body is but a comparatively in
sign lficant part of the man.
