Ail public-spirited citizens will look to
the Republicans to send to Washington
a representative who will conserve the
interests of all the people of Minnesota,
and, failing in this, the dominant party,
will add one item to the score for which
it will be called to an accounting two
years hence.
The present outlook is not as encour
aging as it might be tor our Republican
bretnren. The situation is badly com
plicated, and to a disinterested and dis
passionate observer it appears clear
that an election will be ha<l only after a
sharp struggle. It may ba assumed
with salely that in the preseut situation
it is Washbum against the field. Th«
closest ooservers believe that the per
centage of chances are in Washburn's
favor, even with this handicap, but
there is a silent force at work which
may materially reduce the Washbum
percentage before a vote is taken. It
is stated that, in addition to the
representatives and senators who will
stand for various local candidates,
such as Comstock, Litid, Hodge, Rogers
and others, Gov. Nelson has some two
score or more of personal friends who
will cast their fortunes with "the field,"
and stay there with ttie purpose of
holding a deadlock in the caucus and
precipitating an election before a cau
cus nomination can be made. Should
this plan work out successfully, the
election will be made only after a pro
longed, bitter and, it is unnecessary to
add, expensive struggle.
OThis theory of the contest is un
doubtedly the correct one, else why
this multiplicity of small-fry candi
dates? The Washbum forces have been
taking much comfort of late in the half
hearted aud somewhat vague statement
which was extorted from Gov. Nelson
under the duress of a heated campaign,
in which it was set forth that he was "a
candidate for governor only." Those
who know his excellency best will
hardly agree that such a statement
withdraws him from the list of sena
torial possibilities, and if the legislature
goes to a voto ou senator without hav
ing previously agreed on a nominee in
caucus, the Minneapolis senator may as
well begin his "practical work on the
first ballot, for there will then be no
question of sentiment in the contest.
Many of the governments of the world
are engaged iv an effortjto make condi
tions as favorable for England as possi
ble. While all envy and attempt to In
jure that country, they are all helping
it. While chey are jealous of its enor
mous accumulation of wealth, they are
so constructing their domestic econo
mies as to pour wealth into it. For
years Germany and France have been
competing with each othw to provide
the people of England with cheap su
gar. They have taxed their people to
pay bounties for raising beets and pro
ducing sugar, and capped the climax
by paying bounties on export of sugar,
with the result that England has goue
out of the bxisiness of refining raw su
gars, because these nations furnish it
so cheaply.
Now France is engaged in furnishing
England with cheap flour. She has in
creased her duties on imports of wheat
and flour in order to stimulate her
home production, and she has put an ex
uort bounty on flour to stimulate milling.
This enables French millers to lav down
flour in British markets at a consider
ably less price than American flour can
be sold at. A reflex action of this in
this country is the combination of our
millers to limit product, of which there
is a surplus owing to the displacement
of American by French flour. Our re
bate system of American duties in
many ways operates to reduce cost ot
our product to English consumers, and
so we, too, play our part in this great,
concerted effort to make England the
most favored of all nations.
The Republican papers which have so
stoutly opposed the proposition of the
Populists and silver miners for the free
coinage of silver at a ratio of sixteen to
one, and which are now opposing the
currency plan submitted by Secretary
Carlisle, either because they do not
wish to have this congress enact any
law to reform the currency, or because
they honestly find defects in it. should
realize that they are playing directly
into the hands of the free coiners.
The strength of the free coinage col
umn has not been at all in the beliet
that the demonetization of silver has
had a depressing effect upon the price
of anything else than itself, but because
of a conviction that the currency supply
of the country is either so deficient or
so monopolized at present a* to impede
the exchanges of agricultural products.
This is particularly the case with the
Southern representatives, and to a large
degree with those from the West. These
men do not want cheap money, but they
want ample facilities for producing a
sound currency adequate to the de
mands or trade.
Already the effect of Secretary Car
lisle's plan is shown in the weakening
and dismemberment of the free coinage
column. What Delilah with her shears
did for Samson, Carlisle with his plan
ha? done for the silver miners. The
motive of the latter was always purely
selfish. The producers of bullion cared
little for the increase of currency it
would afford, but entirely lor a market
for their product.
The advocates tor free coinage cared
as little for its effect as a marKet for
silver bullion, but entirely for the in
crease of the circulating medium. The
promise of this in the plans of the sec
retary has had the effect of drawing
away from the free coinage column the
latter class of its supporters, leaving
the bullion producers and a few cranks
of the Bland stripe standing alone. The
rejection of the plan will send these
men back to their former position
strongly reinforced.
Representative Dockery, having re
modeled the organization of some of the
departments of government fa Wash
ington, is now turning his attention to
the land department of the intorior, and
proposes sweeping changes in it. He
would have the offices of register ami
receiver of the local offices consolidated,
and the ofiice of surveyor general abol
ished and its duties transferred to the
land office. However distasteful the
reforms of Mr. Dockery are to the doh«
ticians and to those either holding or
exuecting oflice. they are distinctively
in the line of reform and of simpler and
betttr government. There lias never
been a time when there was a good rea
son for the two separate oliiees of re
ceiver and register of land offices.
lv the earlier da>s, wuau these offices
transacted a large amount of business,
one hea.l could have managed the whole
with ettse, and the one head of each
land ottic« can now perform all the
duties of the office of surveyor general
in addition to his own. Wirh the vastly
diminished business of the land de
partment any excuse there may have,
been in the past for the maintenance of
these conditions no longer exists, and
the consolidation may well be made. In
fact it is a larger question whether all
of these ofltoM might well be abolished
by the transfer to the state of the public
dtiinliin within the borders of each. No
good end is served by the retention of
the ownership by the nation of tlio
lauds while il plainly conflicts with the
idea of state sovereignty.
Secretary Smith and Commissioner
Lochren have provoked another out
burst ot indignation from the old sol
diers. The act of 18J0 known as the
"•dependent pension act" was intended
to bo limited, and by its terms was lim
ited, to those soldiers who were depend
ent upoi: their manual labor for sup
port and by reason of disability were
unable to work. This feature of the
bill was entirely lost sight of during:
the Harrison administration, and has
been restored by Mr. Lochren. The
same act extended its provisions to the
widows of soldiers who were similarly
circumstanced. If they were dependent
upon their manual labor for a livelihood
and were unable to work they are en
titled to pensions. Clearly it they are
not dependent upon manual labor for a
livelihood, having property or other
means or support, they are not entitled
to it. This construction Secretary Smith
has adopted, bringing it iv harmony
with the construction as applied to male
pensioners, and we are informed that
because of it "Uie veterans of the late
war and (.rand Army men are very se
vere in their condemnation of the sec
retary." As thai otticer is merely ex
ecuting the pension law in its spirit
and letter, we fail to see any ground
of just censure.
The Boston Herald has been the most
unfriendly to Secretary Carlisle of the
Eastern Democratic and independent
press, and aiway expressed its lack of
confidence in his financial ability. This
attitude, makes more valuable the fol
lowing comment on the secretary's plan
of currency reform.
The Herald says:
It recognizes that the measure pro
posed by Secretary Carlisle, so far as it
refers to the circulation of natioual
banks, with certain amendments, mak
ing the cancellation of greenbacks and
treasury notes imperative instead of
discretionary on the issuance of new
notes, is the most comprehensive and
ablest exponent yet presented of what
Mr. White called the "bunking princi
ple." It gladly acknowledged the ability
shown by the author, its concise, cogent
reasoning, and its statesmanlike at
tempt at the solution of the problem.
While we hive differed radically iv the
past from Mr. Carlisle on many of the
policies attributed to him ou the silver
question, yet we recognize that his re
port hits a true ring in its discussion of
recent silver legislation and the neces
sity of adherence to the gold standard.
Coming at this time, his financial meas
ure will give food for earnest discus
sion, out of which may arise financial
legislation productive of much good to
the country in curiug evils which all
must admit under our present system
ot laws.
As might have beeu expected, Gen.
Weaver is out in a fierce letter denounc
ing all of the proposed currency plans
as schemes of tho money power and
gold bugs and other rapacious animals
who go about the country seeking only
whom they may devour. As the gen
eral was himself a candidate for con
gress in the last election, running on
his peculiar money views, and was em
phatically defeated, it is evident that he
lias not been able to impress the farm
ers of his district with a very paralyzing
fear of the gold bug 3.
The event of the season in this city
will occur on Sunday, Dec. 16, at the
Metropolitan opera bouse, when the

in his report that experiments at Center

vince him that large artesian wells can
be sunk at that point which will pro

every twenty-four hours.
The total daily average consumption
of water last year was 7.464,391 gallons
from the Vadnaia system and 400,000

lie adds that the reduced pressure
due to excessive sprinkling, through
such a drought as we experienced last
summer, can only be remedied by the
substitution of larger inaius in the vi

And Sends Her a Handle of* Dainty
Clotliinj; ' hrou<;ni Mayor
"1 wish you to give these little arti
cles of clothing to little iVury, who was
so poor and wan a year ago. It »iut a
mile, but it may help the iittlw iriie. >1
you are not the gentleman who held the
office a year apo you can easily find out
wlio little Mary is. Give ler the:-e
clothes for me, and you will greatly
oblige one who feels so badly whvn tho
poor suffer."
The letter came yesterday to the may
or's office, and was writ by Mrs.
CUM Hook, of iestown. Mass.
Accompanying the letter was a littlu
bundle of child's clothing. The mayor
became so interested that he at once
started his aides in search of little
Mary. An effort was made to see May
or Wright, but he was not in. James
Nugent, the mayor's second aid, how
ever, remembers something of the cir
cumstance, It appears that from far
off Charleston- Mrs. Hook is looking
after the welfare of a mite of a girl
somewhere here In the city. Something
was written of the child in theGLOHK. a
year ago, and it reached the eye of Mrs.
Hook in Massachusetts. Her sympa
hies were enlisted, and. ascertaining
the exact age and size of the child, she
then sent a bundle of the most dainty
clothing for the little one. She sent
provisions, too, and warmer clotting for
the child's comfort during the winter
months. Shu has kept close watch
over the child through the mayor's of
fice, and the bundle which came yester
day was her offer tor the coining Christ
mas day. •
"It changes have been made in the
office," ran the letter, "please ask the
gentleman who was there before you
for particulars of little Mary, then
kindly bear this bundle to her, with my
best wishes and my best love, if the
child needs more, 1 can send them.
Please do not permit those who are
poor to suffer where there is or ought to
be plenty. 1 ask you to be thoughtful
of my mite, little as it is."
"1 wiil find that child if it takes a
month," said Mayor Smith yesterday,
and he had Nugent put on his" hat and
coat and start out in quest of Mayor
Wruht. Other inquiries were insti
tuted, and by tonight little Mary will
have been found. It is hardly likely
that the little one has any idea that sev
eral big men are now busily engaged
looking up her home, or that she has a
pretty lot of Christmas presents iv store.

Carlisle's Financial Plan
Alarms Silver Senators
and Representatives.
Who Have Heretofore Voted
With the Radical Free
Coinage Element.
If the Anti-Silver Republic
ans Are Patriotic Enough
to Help.
Special to the Globe.
U ashixoton, Dec. 12.—The financial
plan proposed by becrelary Cariisle will.
when formulated in Hie siiape of a bill,
coiuiuaiid nearly th« solid support of
the leading house Democrats North and
South. Party discipline may prevent
the Republicans falling in line to any
extent fur the bill; but that there will
be a considerable number like Congress
man Walker, of Massachusetts, who
will support the measure rt«ardles3 of
party there is no doubt. As has been
predicted, the Southern Democrats are
much more disposed to follow the pres
ident, and particularly the brainy sec
retary 01 the treasury, than they were a
year ago. This is daily becoming more
So far but one Southern fr«e siiv«r
man has come out openly agaiuat the
plan proposed Oy the secretary, and it
is interesting to consider bis case and
the reasons which moved him to take
this position. His name is Suodgrass,
and he hails from Tennessee.
He Was Turned Down.
lv the previous sessions of this con
gress Mr. Snodgrass was one of the
wildest and most uncompromising sil
ver men. In fact he wjs more radical
than Mr. Bland himself without the
ability and good sense of the Missour
ian. Mr. Snodgrass was especially hard
on his colleague. Mr. Patterson, of
the Memphis district, when the latter
voted for the repeal of the Sherman act.
Mr. Snograss went home and accepted
a renomination. expecting, of course,
that his people would return him by the
usual liberal majority, but, alas, when
the votes were counted Mr. Snodgrass
found that he, the great silver advocate
and bitter oppouent of the financial pol
icy of the president, had been beateu,
and beaten badly. So much for Mr.
Snodgrass' experience at the polls.
JNow, a word as to the position he takes
on the plan recommended by Secretary
Carlisle and indorsed by the president".
Will Divide silver Ui 11.
In-the opiniou of Mr. Snodjirass this
proposition of the secretary is designed
to take the support of ihe Southern sil
ver men away from the silver mine
owners-and representatives of the West
and thus cripple them. His reasons for
takintr this view of the matter are that
Uie Southern silver men do not care so
much for silver as they do to secure a
safe and elastic currency. They want
more money South, and they do not in
sist upon its beins silver; in fact, Mr.
Snodjrrass is very much alarmed lest
they may prefer to have it under the
plan recommended by the head of the
treasury department.
As a matter of fact, the serious oppo
sition to the adoption of the new plan
will be found in the senate, where the
silver Republicans propose to fight to
the last ditch rather than see the cur
rency problem settled in any way that
will not give them the privilege of tak
ing their silver bullion to the mints and
receiving twice its value in notes or
bullion stamped by the government.
The leaders of this Republican free
silver contingent— Senator Dubois, of
Idaho, in particular—have given notice
of their intention to use ali the means
in their power to prevent anything
going through save a free coinage bill
IHay Lead to * lotnre.
These threats may be the causa of
many Northern Republican senators
joining the Democrats in passing a clo
ture rule at this session, for the simple
reason that these s.ime silver Republic
ans make no secret of their intentions
to make trouble in the Fifty-fourth
comrress. It is certain that nearl) ail
the Democratic senators look with favor
on the plan of the secretary, and if a
cloture rule is adopted ana filibustering
in the shape of long-winded speeches
by Stewart. Allen, Peffnr and the rest
of the radical free-silver-or-noihing or
der of statesmen cut off, that some
measure of currency reform will be
passed before the end of the present
scssiou. A great deal, of course, de
pends upon whether or isot there is
enough patriotism on the Republican
side of the senate chamber to secure
the passage of the cloture rule.
The fact that in the next congress the
Republicans will be in control of the
senate ought to be sufficient to commend
the proposition to those who are look
ing for party advantage. There are
Democrats like Senator Morgan, of Ala
bama, who are opposed to any change
on the ancient, and moss-covered laws
which control the senate.and then there
is more Mian a suspicion that there are
several who want to make use of these
rules to kiM objectionable bills pro
posed by the Republicans wnen they
are in control. None of these reasons,
however, have any
Weight With Hard.Headed He*
like George, of Mississippi; Vest and
Cockreli, of Missouri, and White, of
California. They are tired of bearing
any share of the obloquy heaped on the
senate for its failure to do anything in
the present congress; in short, their
experience with tjie tariff bill has made
them zealous advocates of a change in
the rules.
In brief, the. situation is just about as
stated. A currency reform measure
akin* the government out of the bank
ing business can be passed though the
house without a tiouot with the support
of a large proportion of the Southern
members, who have heretofore voted for
free coinage of silver. This measure
will be killed or die in the senate unless
the rules are changed and debate limit
ed to a reasonable length.
The whole question hinges on the
tight that will be made for a change in
lite rules. Perhaps twenty-five Repub
lican senators who don't represent silver
mines will allow the dozen that no to
control them in the matter, but if they
do a whole Hook of chickens will come
home to roosi on them before two years
have passed.
The [re* silver '.'traders" from the
Rocky mountain states are more wor
ried than they will confess over the
surprising stillness among the South
ern Democratic senators and represen
tatives concerning the plan of the sec
retary. In every way possible they
have J
