TnE Chicago Inter Ocean says of Itself: "lc is a Republican paper with a.l that that implies." Running over the editorials In the same issue, we find evidence of what is implied in beinir a Republican paper. One sentence as seris that '"the McKinley act was in imical to the sugar trust." Again, "the Democratic attorney generel has not ■ought to enforce the national law against this great trust;" and again. Secretary Carlisle's report was held back "to let Mr. Cleveland exploit the Baltimore plan." The first sentence quoted Indicates that falsehood by in ference is one implied duty. The at torney general having only recently argued in the supreme court an appeal from an adverse decision in a suit brought to enforce thd anti-trust act BCaiust the sugar trust, the second quotation shows that falsehood direct is another function or a Republican paper. Mr. Cleveland did not "exploit" the Baltimore plan, and so the report was not held back to let him; and thus it appears that falsehood by innuendo is another duty of such papeis. The In ter Ocean's own exposition is quite in teresting and illustrative. Tnr CourkT-Journa! refers to this as "the last Democratic eoojeress."

The Minneapolis Tribune displays a scanty equipment of public morality in its advice to the Republicans of the senate to stand aloof and not help such Democrats as may desire to repeal the trust features ot the sugar schedule. If its private morals are no lusher, and the line between the two is indistinguish able, it is "unco* weak and little to be trusted." What is the case? A Republican eon irress gave a trust leave to rob every sugar consumer in the country to the extent of half a cent a pouurt at least. This grant enabled it to capitalize a plant worth $i).GOO,000 at $75,000,000, and to pay regularly a dividend of 7 per cent on its preferred aud l'J per cent on its common stock. Its profits during the three years of this bonus were ad mitted by its president to be "about" £3.5,000,000. That it was a sheer robbery was shown by the fact that each >ear it has sent sugars abroad fur sale. A Democratic congress was so in fected with the same influences that pervaded its predecessor that it could do no more than reduce this power to rob from a half to an eighth of a cent. It did this In the face of a solid Repub lican opposition. But no sooner had it done it than the Republican papers and Breakers joined the Democratic press that had denounced the action of its representatives, in portraying the mon strous iniquity of even the reduced license. They runs all the changes possible on it. They proclaimed it a shameless robbery of a helpless people by a rapacious trust through form and by force of law. Clearly here is a case not of politics, but of morals. If all that was said by those papers and by Democrats is true, it is as much the duty of one party as the other, and of every senator in each, to stop the robbery at the first oppor tunity. If they are not true, then there has been a cross deception put upon the people. But they were true, and to refuse to help stop the robbery is to become accessory to it. The advice of the Tribune only displays the moral obstuseness, the insincerity, the indif ference to ths public weal and the subordination of the general welfare to that of the party, which is the most dis couraging and ominous feature of our politics. No wonder the impression prevails that neither political party cares for anything but its own suprema cy, and that no trick, deception, artifice or fraud is to be avoided if it will con tributo to success. Purity allied to strength—is the s!o --ean of Price's Cream Baking Powder. Forty years the standard of superiority. THIS OLD MAN OF THE MOUNT 4.1 X. The silver miners of the country have themselves only to biaiue if it is im possible now to consider any proposi tion for the farther utilization of their product in the coinage fur the present or for an indefinite time in the future. Before every device propose.! there looms up that mountain of silver which the legislation of since 1878, demanded and obtained by them, has created. The live hundred millions of silver coin and bullion In the treasury stands threaten ingly in the way of any effort. They have bent their shoulders to the Old Man of the Mountain, and he sits se curely astride of them, and can be nei ther cajoied into getting oil" nor be shaken off. It it could be taken out into mid-ocean and dropped, something might be done; but it is there, and there it promise* to stay, uaralyziiig all elTorts here and preventing action brother nations. The mountain casts its shadow over the hnancesof the world. Better far would it have been to have passed the Bland act of '78 than to have accepted the Allison compromise. The patient misht have endured the shock of the slight operation then; it would kill him now. Th« elections indicate plainly and em phatically the rejection by the people of that proposal of desperation—the free coinage of silver at a discredited and fictitious ratio. The eouutry has passed on that proposition, and it is as dead as is the rieht of secession. Something can be done, and Secretary Carlisle indicates it in his report. The mountain can be lowered $150,000,000 by the practical retiring of the Shermans deposited as a guarantee fund under the proposed banking Dian. To that extent the gold hunger will be appeased, and as that is sated the appetite for silver will be increased. By the proposed elimination of all bank notes below the denomination of 810 and the increase of the number of silver certificates below that sum the silver in the treasury will be made to do the work or minor ex changes, a work for which its coin is only adapted. With the removal of the load of responsibility from gold and the consequent removal of the dread of its Insufficiency—a condition that exists and cannot be reasoned away—we will be in a condition in which we can safely rest and await the developments of the future. No doctor can do more than aid natun* when evil courses have en tailed disease. lie administers his remedies and palliatives, and waits. That is all that is possible to do now with silver. THE MUNICIPAL. COUKT. There is more than a passing inclina tion on tue part of the Ramsey county delegation to make a provision in the proposed new charter which will dis mantle the present municipal court and provide a tribunal of concurrent iuris dicUon with the justice courts which will be less cumbersome and, what is better, far -less expensive. This ques> tion is one which has agitated nearly every city in the Union at one tiroo or another, and it is to be hoped that the framers of the new charter will treat it judiciously and without reference to npartisanship. The present court is nor i'Sfe SAINT PATJI. DAILY GLOBE: SATURDAY MORmNTC}. PKCEMS&R 8, ISI4 posed of a Democrat and a Ipublican, j but the latter has not conducted himself in a manner to command the approval of his party, and for thin reason, if for no other, it may be expected that the Republican representatives will deal with the question without reference to its beating on the Republican judge. There is no question that the cost of maintaining this court is at least double what it should be, and many or the best attorneys of the city unite in the opt nion that the civil branch could be abolished to good advantage, while the work of Hie criminal branch could as well be at tended to by a much simpler and lens xpen ive system. Whatever will tend to remove this court farthest from the domination of political bosses and male* it the tribunal of the common people is what the peo ple want. A commission to inquire into the systems in vogue in other cities could doubtless do much toward solving the or. bl in, and such a commission could perform such a duty at small cost of time and money. This is one of the most important problems to com* be fore the next legislature, and it should be given careful consideration by the Ramsey county delegation. A PKCUIiiAK POLICY. The ways of the mayor of Minneapo lis resemble "the peace of God," in that the.v "pass all understanding." By what authority of law he proceeds in putting aid 11 through what he felici tously terms the "sweating process" is something that he has not yet seen fit to explain. Supposing one of the numer ous susDects who have recently been sub mitted to this course of treatment should see tit to reoel and kill one or two or half a dozen of the mayor's body guard in the attempt to regain the liberty of which he is unlawfully restrained; what could be done about it? If a man were held a prisoner by a baud of robbers he would clearly have the right to kill as many of them as was necessary to gain his liberty. Now, while it is not inti mated that Mayor Eustis is a robber, or that his detectives are any more robbers than the general run of sleuths, the point seems clear that they have no more right than a robber to pick men up at random, without a warrant, and hold a half day's inquisition over them, than aroboer would have to do the same thing. Some of these days the mayor of Minneapolis will get hold of a man who knows something, and then he will be like the man who caught the wolf and spent the rest of the day praying for somebody to help him let go of it. The New York Times has compiled a table of the votes in each state, giving the votes of the Democrats and Repub licans in ISJi and 18(J1, and computing the losses and gains and estimating the Democratic stay-at-home vote. If its computations in other states are no more accurate than is that of Minnesota, the labor of compilation is lost. It takes the vote on governor in '1)4 and on pres ident in '92 of both parties as a basis of computation, and from this It draws the conclusion that there were 21,792 Demo crats wiio did not vote. It also com pares the vote of Owen with that for Weaver, and makes a Populist gain o 56,933. The fallacy of this computation aud of all conclusions based ou it is shown by taking as the basis not the votes for the candidates for governor, but the average of the votes received by the several candidates on each ticket, ex cluding the governor and associate jus tice. This gives tha Republicans 150, --4.).. the Democrats G'J.B4O, and the Pop uiists 60,517. Again, as the toial vote cast was 296,333, if there were 21,792 Democrats not voting, the total possible would have been 318)125, an increase in two years of over 54.000 votes.

SILENT AS THE GRAVE. That Is the Condition of the Ramsey County Dele gation. MR. CHAMBERLAIN'S LETTER. The Keynote in a Movement to Sidetrack Charter Legislation. MR. LITTLETON WITHDRAWS. The Swiftest Runner Will Win the Speakership Gavel. A number of prominent citizens of this city are asking the reason that thu Ramsey county delegation doesn't get down to work on a new charter, or to outlining legislation relative to county offices. They cite the fact that, all the Republicans, iv convention and on the stump, made loud proclamation to the effect that they would cut down ex penses and cut off boards in the interest of taxpayers. This has all been dropped, and thwre is an ominous silence on the subject since the election. A Republican of considerable prominence said last evening that it looked like the delegation has agreed to disagree on this subject, and it will be found that they will have no concerted plan when the legislature meets. There will be many excuses offered against proposed changes; and the quibbling is part of the plan to de« feat any legislation, if possible. He was disposed to look upon the article in a morning paper concerning the atti tude of Judge Orr relative to the muni cipal court as a mere bluff against Judge Twohy. The delegation is us ing its threats against Judge Twohy on the quiet, and is threatening to wipe out the municipal court iv case tie two judges do not agree to a change in the clerk. Judge Orr is said to be in the scheme, and is willing to take some outside abuse, while his friends of the delegation are using their threats against Judge Twohy. If they can se cure a Republican clerk of the court before the legislature meets there will be nothing more heard from the Ram sey county delegation on the subject of wiping out the muuicipal court. It will then be put in the category with the other offices, and will never fee molested or any of its salaries cut down. Another scheme of the Republicans is to oust Aid. Hare, if possible, so that the common council will be a tie. Then they will try to work up a trade, when it comes time to elect a city clerk and a corporation attorney; failing in the at tempt to trade, they expect to secure a deadlock so that the present incumbents will hold over in those offices. A Republican Trick. Apropos of charter legislation, an opinion has been prepared by Corpora tion Attorney Chamberlain that was asked for as a party measure, and is intended to bolster up the delegation in declining to propose changes in the Bell charter. Mr. Chamberlain gave his written opinion, and it was pub lished in the official organ of the Re publican delegation. The whole tenor of his lengthy letter is to support the present charter. He expatiates on Us advantages, and cites the effects of pre vious attempts to pass a municipal char ter bill. A gentleman who trains with the Republicans ana who can see as far into a grindstone as most people, says that it is plain to him tnat the .Ramsey county delegation will be opposed to any municipal charter biil, and that they will stick to present "laws and thus protect the Republican* ofliceholders. Their present actions indicate as much, and a careful study of the seutiment among Republican politicians will sup port this view. Race for the Gavel. The situation in the speakershlp con test is that the contest is moving alone, with three active and prominent candi dates working in this city. They are Col. J. L. Gibbs, Capt. $. R. Van Sant and Hon. Daniel Shell. It is hard to tell which will secure the gavel. S. T. Littleton, of Rasson, is said to have withdrawn in favor of Mr. Gibbs. Mr. Underieak is not making an act ive canvass. Henry Feig is work ing among his colleagues in the northern part of the state, and C. F. Staples, of Dakota county, is busy ct wurk on the pine land investi gation. Mr. Feig and Mr. Staples will havo some strength, but are not doing the work that the three leading candi dates are. A Legislative Contest. John J. Furious, of Austin, lias a con test on his hands. Mr. Furlong has been very popular in his district and is a member of tiie World' Fair commis sion. He was elected to the lower house, by three Majority, over John Allen. Mr. Furlong is an Alliance- Democrat, and Mr. Allen is a Repub lican. The county was carried by Gov. Nelson by a large plurality, but Mr. Furlong's popularity saved him. Mr. Allen tiled notice of an appeal at Albert Lea. and a»ked a recount of the votes in thiee precincts. Mr. Allen re tained all the lawers in Austin, and Mr. Furlong came to St. Paul to get leijal aid. A recount was demanded of one ward in Austin and the towns of Lyle and Adams. It is said that if a re count of the disputed ward in Austin does not change the result Mr. Allen will give up a:iy farthar ou.uiu Hoard iv Hotels. E. G. Swanstrom, of Duluth, a very influential Republican of the state, left for home last night. He says that he believes that Senator Washburn will bo defeated. Speakmg of the Duluth del egation, he said that he understood when they were nominated that they were anti-Washburn men. Senator!'. V. Knatvold. of Albert Lea. was at the Merchants' yesterday. He does not look with favor upon any system yet proposed for governing pri mary elections, as ho thinks them too cumbersome ami expensive. He *be lieves iv a law governing caucuses that woula be simple and inexpensive. On the senatorial question he is as tree us any Republican member of eitnei branch. Representative C. A. Parkei, of St* Paul Park, was in the city yesterday, and mingled with the politicfans in the hotel lobbies. He believes Senator \\ asbburn is clear out of the race. William Lock wood, of Edgerton, was in tlio hotel lobbies yesterday. He is a representative from Pipestottc county, and says hid people are maktltc the speakership hirht lirst. They want to see Daniel Shell elected speaker, and alter that they will look after other can didates who want gilts iroin the legis lature.
