When Senator Nelson meets with

The election of Gov. Nelson to the
senator-ship is an event 'which has
attracted very wide attention all
over the Union. This is solely due
to the attitude he took while in
congress . during the debate on the
Mills bill. During the senatorial
campaign we commented on the na
tional aspect of the contest between
Mr. Washburn and Gov. Nelson,
and noted that it would be taken
as indicating the attitude of the
delegation from this state in the
next national convention. We said
that Mr. Nelson's position on the
tariff question would be considered
as placing him among the reaction
ists of the party led by Mr. Reed,
as Mr. Washburn's devotion to the
McKinley act would lead his suc
cess to be regarded as an indorse
ment of the restorationists. .
The Chicago Inter Ocean, with
that obliquity which causes it to see
everything as it is not, reverses this
position of the GLOBE and refers to
it as saying that the Reed men were
behind Washburn and 'the McKinley
men behind Nelson. The general
run of comment by the press shows
that the election of Mr. Nelson is
' regarded with mixed and contrary
feelings by the Republicans. They
are not altogether -certain where he
will stand on the tariff question
when it comes up in the Fifty-fourth
congress. Neither wing of the party
seems to be entirely confident and
each is supposed to look somewhat
askance at the new senator, while
papers like the Inter Ocean are
claiming that whatever there may
have been heretical in the govern
or's views, he has fully recanted
them and is now among the elect.

the Chicago Tribune is a type claim
that he is still a free trader, and
may be relied upon to oppose res
toration. In the campaign of 1888
he was pressed to make an expres
sion of opinion on the tariff question,
and in a speech he said that "we
would first down Grover Cleveland
and then go for these trusts and
monopolies." He also expressed the
opinion in 1890 that the McKinley
act was a better act than the Mills
•bill for which he had voted. He
did not go into details to explain in
what respect it was better, and his
subsequent utterances on the tariff
question have been of the mildest
kind. The Pioneer Press is standing
sponsor for him, however, and as
sures its doubting Eastern contem
poraries that Senator Nelson will
stand among the faithful, having
been duly anointed. We make the
prediction, however, that when the
fight gets hot again between free
trade and protection the old Norsk
love of freedom in Nelson's veins
will carry him to the side of liberty.
VEST AT THE FORKS.
Senator Vest announces - that he
and the administration have come
to the parting of the ways; that he
can go no farther with it, and bids
it a sad and melancholy farewell.
The senator is another of those
Democrats who persist in asserting
that the country is in the rapacious
and merciless grasp of the money
power, and that the only thing that
will compel a release of that grasp
is .the free coinage of silver.
Even the awful lesson of Missouri
going Republican is lost upon him.
For years Mr. Vest, in the senate,
and Mr. Bland, in the house, have
been preaching the gospel of silver
fiatism, to the rejection of which
they have attributed most of the
•financial woes of the country. Cam
paign after campaign they have been
preaching to their people that the
falling prices of their products were
entirely due to the demonetization
of silver; that its remonetization by
free coinage would restore prosper
ity. All political experience teaches
how powerful such arguments are
with the people in times of financial
depression. Had they succeeded in
convincing the majority of their con
stituents of the accuracy of their
opinions, it is incredible that they
would not have declared their con
victions at the polls.
The lesson in Missouri is the same
as that taught everywhere outside
of the silver states. As the result of
the election of '94, the Democratic
majority of sixty-six in the legis
lature on joint ballot is turned into
a Republican majority of sixteen.
Of the fifteen congressional districts,
thirteen of them returned Demo
crats in 1892, and in 1894 but five
Democrats are returned to congress.
The Democratic plurality on the
state ticket in 1892 of 41,480 is turned
in 1894 into a Republican plurality
of 3,044. Nor is this the only object
lesson that Senator Vest fails to
comprehend. The vote upon the re
peal of the Sherman silver purchase
act was made a test of loyalty to the
policy of free coinage. The free sil
ver men opposed it. Of the thirteen
Missouri Democrats in the house, all
of them except Mr. Cobb voted
against the repeal.
Of the twelve voting against the
repeal, six were renominated and
defeated, and two were replaced by
other Democrats in the convention,
and these were defeated. Of the
four who voted against the repeal
and were elected, Mr. De Armond
was returned by a plurality of 82, as
against 3,394 in '92; Mr. Dockery by
a plurality of 340, as against 3,461 in
'92; Mr. Hall by 1,861, as against'
5,302, and Mr. Tarsney by 744, as
against 5,167. On the other hand,"
Mr. Cobb, who voted for the repeal,
had his plurality almost exactly
doubled, it having been 1,332 in '92
and 2,626 in '94. It appears, then,
that Senator Vest came to the part
ing of the ways, not at the introduc
tion the other day of the adminis
tration currency bill, but prior to
last November, and the ways did
not separate him from the adminis
tration, but from a majority of the
voters of the state of Missouri. It is
said that the only way to get a joke
into the head of a Scotchman is by a
surgical operation. It evidently re
quires something more than that
even to get comprehension of the sit
uation into the head of Senator
In another matter the doughty
senator from Missouri is equally at
fault. He opposes the administra
• tion bill because, he says, it com
mits the country irrevocably to the
gold standard, and to that he is
unalterably opposed. When the act .
of 1834 reduced the number of grains
in our gold coins it undervalued sil

. If this legislature wishes to relieve
the supreme court of no inconsider
able amount of the business which
now occupies its time it will put a
sharp limitation on the cases origin
ating in justice "courts which can be
appealed beyond the district court.
Quite a large percentage of the
cases reaching the supreme court
originate in some neighborhood
quarrel over the trespass of cattle
or the invasion of hogs, or the own
ership of a stray calf or the locus of
a division fence, or some one of those
utterly insignificant matters that
stir the souls of men and women
into wrath. Backed by their pug
nacity and encouraged by lawyers
anxious for ri fee, the litigation
goes on up and up until five grave
judges, sitting upon the bench of
the court of last resort of the state,
are called. upon to seriously consider
the inconsequential questions of law
and fact involved "in the case. •
Chief Justice Dixon, in a similar,
case which came before the supreme
court of Wisconsin, commented with
biting sarcasm upon the devotion to
principle and the loyalty to their
profession which characterized the
lawyers who brought a suit involv
ing the ownership of a $5 calf from
a country justice court to the su
preme court for final decision. It
is true that a very important prin
ciple of law may be involved in a
very small controversy, but it is
evident that there must be a limita
tion somewhere, and that the gen
eral interest must not be sacrificed
to the smaller private one. Even in
such cases it is not the principle of
law that would be denied recognition
by denying a further appeal than the
district court, but it is simply the
declaration that the amount . in
volved is too insignificant to be
given consideration beyond the first
court of appeal.
The tin plate situation confuses
the New York Tribune. That is, it
admits that it is confused. Some
thing is to be hoped for when it
reaches this point. Heretofore ft
has been confused and didn't know
it. If the doubling the tax on tin
plate under the McKinley act has
had the effect of clarifying the vision
of the Tribune so that it can see
that it is confused, even if its vision
is limited to this one article of tin
plate, the tax has not been without
its benefits. What confuses the Trib
une is the fact that tin plate is made
in this country in spite of the asser
tion in the campaign of '90 that it
was not and could not be made.
hat ought to confuse the Tribune
is the fact that tin plate is still being
made in this country in spite of the
reduction of the tax to its former
status, and in spite of the stout
assertions of the manufacturers and
of papers like the Tribune that, if
the tax of 2.2 cents a pound were
not retained every tin plate factory
in the country would have to shut
up. That tin plate is still being
produced in this country and the
tax is no higher than when they
said that they could not produce it
unless the tax was doubled, is a
pretty straight way of giving the lie
to the claim that protection was
ever necessary for them. ;.'-;>'.;
Senator Palmer's bill providing for
the payment of the first mortgage
bonds of the Pacific roads by the
government in silver standard dol
lars coined from the so-called seign
iorage in the treasury is a bit of
tit-for-tat business. These first
mortgage bondholders became such
by one of those pieces of chicanery
with which the records of congress
in the sixties and seventies are so
rich, by which the first mortgage
lien of the government was made
second to theirs. It was a cool,
clear case of fraud, cut off from the
same piece of fraud from which the
Credit Mobilier and other rank jobs
were made. These bonds were
tainted with this fraud from their
inception, and no holder of them
today, whether original or subse
quent, is entitled to plead the "in
nocent holder" defense to Senator
Palmer's proposition. There is a
sense of poetic justice in this meet- .
ing a palpable fraud with a sugar
coated one. There is no clanger, of
course, that the bill will receive any
consideration. The railways are too
strongly entrenched in the senate,
and are all too closely bound to
gether by a community of interests.
They will consolidate their forces
for its defeat. *

it will catch none. What are called

A couple of months ago the New
England Tariff Reform club dropped
that very vague and uncertain title,
and adopted that of the New En
gland Free Trade league. This ac
tion was mildly deprecated by the
Boston Herald at the time, whose
conservatism was alarmed at the
forward movement, but it is evi
dent that its fears have been modi
fied. A reviving courage enables it
now to say tentatively that "shack
les upon men may logically imply
shackles upon trade also, but free
dom for men implies freedom of
trade, if there be any connection be
tween the two systems."

It was thus that Tom Carson was

for a moment behind the counter of

"Boom, sir?" said Tom, not notic

the stranger's manner.

"Why, Custer consulted with me
the day he rode to ambush and
death on the Little Big Horn. Had
he taken my advice, he would never

with the silk tile, as he removed a

coat. A scarifying look was coming
into his eyes, and his jaws were
working like those of a hungry, man
at a well-laden board.
Representative Littleton came
along just then, looked sharply at
the excited stranger, and then
slapped him on the shoulder. Little

CAMPBELL MAY BE SOLID.
Assistant United States Marshal
W. S. Daggett, of Fargo, passed
through St. Paul yesterday on his
way home from Washington. He
expressed the opinion that the ap
pointment of W. M. Campbell as
marshal will be confirmed.
"There is only one charge made
against Marshal Campbell," said
Daggett, "and that has been badly
garbled, I believe. He will have no
trouble in meeting and refuting it
when he is granted a hearing before
the committee. I feel pretty sure
from recent conversation with well
posted people at Washington that
the report in the GLOBE is correct,
and that Campbell will be confirmed
next week. If by any possibility he
should not be, then Richard T.
O'Connor will very likely be the
man to succeed him."

Corbett are the people who do not
know him. Any one who spends an
hour in his society will find him a
.square, honest, jolly, whole-souled
fellow. The honors and attentions
paid him in this and foreign coun
tries have not "swelled his head."
He is plain "Jim" to his friends, and
is averse to posing in public. Out
side the ring he is an ordinary mor
tal of good common sense, possessed
of laudable ambition. It is no won
der he has announced that his next
fight will be his last. He has higher
ambitions, and best of all the in
telligence necessary to carry them
to successful realization. I spent
several hours in his society and took
supper with him the other night.
I found him to be as much different
from the ideal prize-fighter, as day
is from night. His actions at table,
where one's breeding can best be
judged, were refined and easy. His
language was beyond reproach. I
could scarcely imagine the neat,
handsome, graceful fellow the cham
pion fighter of the world. When I
questioned him about his coming
battle with Fitzsimmons .he .was
very moderate in his reply and
merely expressed a natural confi
dence. Another good point about
him. is that he doesn't care to do all
the talking. He likes to listen, and
he enjoys a good joke keenly. One
of his best traits is his loyalty, to
his friends. The acquaintances of
years ago find in him the same af
fable and kindly "Jim" as he was

William Twombly got out of bed
unusually early yesterday morning
to attend the funeral of a deceased
friend. The least he could do was to
sacrifice his morning nap and sit
through the services at the church.
So, arraying himself in his Sunday
garb, he proceeded to the church,
feeling duly sorrowful and gloomy.;
The edifice was well filled with
friends of the deceased, and Twom
bly - modestly contented himself
[with a back pew. He had not been
in church for years, and naturally
the services— which are always im
pressive — were doubly so to him.
He thought of his old friend now
: lying cold in death, and the tears
coursed slowly down his cheeks. He
, really felt sorrowful. But he had
sufficient presence of mind left to
I notice that none of his daily com

thought of it bitterly, wondering
why they could not sacrifice a little
sleep in order to pay their last re
spects to their dead friend. He re

of them' when next he saw them.

head, walked slowly from the church.

panions.. He regarded them scorn

INDORSE THE POOLING BILL.
National Board of Trade Memo
Washington, Jan. 31.— The commit
tee appointed by the national; board of
trade to present to congress the resolu
tion on the pooling bill was at the cap
itol.today and presented it. The- reso
lution is as follows:
Resolved, That in the judgment of
the national board of trade, which rep
resents the shippers and not the rail
roads of this country, the Patterson
pooling; bill will not abrogate legitimate
: petition among the railroads, but
will tend to prevent unjust discrimina
tions and promote the interest ot all
shippers who are satisfied with reason
able, uniform and stable rates; that
the far-reaching influence of water
transportation has assured to this
country much lower rates for railroad
transportation than are enjoyed by any
other people in the world, and the
evil to be guarded against at the
present time is not high rates but un
just discrimination and rates. Our
members of the protested-against amend
ments offered to this bill in the interest
of the railroads when it was pending in
the house, on the ground that it was bad
faith to seek such amendments to a
measure agreed upon at a convention
representing both mercantile and rail
road Interests, and these amendments
were withdrawn; for the same reason
we deprecate further amendments in
the senate, and respectfully but earn
estly urge its adoption by that body.
j The National board of trade today
adopted the report of the finance com
mittee, recommending that in case the
present congress fails to pass legislation
to relieve the present financial situation
the whole question be referred by con
gress to a monetary commission.

It costs about $650 a day, $130 an
hour, or $2 a minute to run the
house. On several occasions the
committee on legislative expenses
has consumed an hour's time, or
$130 in money, to defeat the pur
chase of a $5 item of supplies. This
is the same kind of economy which
was practiced by the pine land com

$37,500 of perfectly good bills.
