Uegh' .ning with O'Kcefo mid go-
i"8 ( loam to Tcinnio , the
01111 Jidrttcs nro no match for
t" Air opponents. Wo said at the wit-
8 at of this county campaign that the
republican ticket was , upon the
wholu , n good deal stronger and better
than had been expected from the
class of men that nominated it.
Douglas county is republican by from
COO to 800 majority and it would
11 have talon a very strong ticket on
the democratic side to overcome that
majority. Wo "confess our surprise
at such a ( load give awny , but wo presume -
sumo the convention labored under
the delusion that any democrat would
bo elected this fall , owing to the sup
posed disaffection caused by the
Slocumb law among republicans nf
foreign nationality. In this they will
bo very much disappointed. There
is a good deal of disaffection
among this class of votorn ,
but there in a good deal more disaffec
tion among tax-paying democrats who
arc not directly interested in the
liquor laws which at best are in no
way connected with the county cam
paign. The people of this county are
not wedded to party in a purely local
inane but men don't desert their party
ticket when the opposition ticket IB
worse than their own. There was a
disposition among republican taxpayers
ers to drop Mr. Knight , who has been
in ofllco nine years and is a member
of a cloao corporation ring , but the
democratic candidate affords no
inducements for republicans to
scratch their ticket. With such blun
dering on the part of the democrats
the republican candidates have an
easy walk iiway , this fall.
POLITICS AND THE FARMERS.
The Farmers' alliance movement is
a most excellent one , and it ought to
effect a crcat and permanent good for
the producer , but the indications are
that it will travel the same crooked
road on which the grange was .lost.
Wo warn the alliance now , that if it
would live , it must kick out from its
lodges every man who commences to
chatter about politics. Kansai City
It is about time that nucli silly clap
trap should ceaso. The monopoly edi
tors who are so seriously alarmed over
the prospect of-our .farmers . taking an
active and' personal interest in poli
tics should at once show somn good
and suillciont reason for their views
or forever hold their peace. Mer
chants have organized in boards of
trade and chambers of commerce to pro
tect the interests of their business.
Manufacturers have joined in common
association to ward ofTcut-throat com
petition. Labor , through organized
oQort , has influenced the platforms of
political parties and induced the
passage of laws for mutual benefit.
Why then is it unwise and oven crim
inal , as some of the monopoly advo
cates would have us believe , for our
farmers to take stops looking to the
political protection of their interests
and the growth of a healthy sentiment -
mont in favor of measures grounded
on public necessity and vital to the
wolfnro of the producing classes of th'o
The outcry which those brass _ col
lared editors raise with such a
show of disinterested affection
will not deceive the producers of the
country. There is an urgent necessi
ty of political activity on the port of
our farmers , who in the post have
been the most conservative element
in the body politic. Tlioy have been
contented to leave to others the or
ganization of parties , the conduct of
primaries and conventions , nnd the
active work in legislatures and the
halls of congress. Their very con
servatism lias boon taken advantage
of to relegate them to n back
seat in our political Hystem ,
and they are now coolly in-
forniodthat they possess no rights
of independent thought on political
subjects which parties are bound to
respect. They aro.advised to kick all
men out of their ranks who "chatter
politics , " to let others do their think
ing ana to leave to party barnacles and
shysters the duty of unking nomina
tion ! ) to suit thoinselvL'H and to direct
the channels of legislation.
These disinterested gentlemen of
the brass collar brigade may ai well
undoratand that our farmers refuse
any longer to be classed as , more voting
ing cattle. They are reading and
thinking nion. They understand
their relations to the world's wealth
and the vast economical interests , of
which thoyarq the main stay.They have
boon silent long enough while power
ful associations of capital have banded
ogether to control legislation and in-
ilucnco the courts of justice for their
own aggrandizement at the expense of
the producers of the country , Plun
dered shumcfully and systematically
by the very men whom their votcn
placed in power , they now demand im
active participation in practical poli
tics. Ttiey do not dcairo to become
politicians , but they will insist that
their vital interests shall bo confided
only to man who nro known to bo in
strong sympathy with their views
and who in addition have the
moral backbone to vote and % vork in
their interests. The Farmer's Al
liance is the first practical movement
of the producers nf the west to take
active steps towards redressing the
grievances under which they suffer.
Chief among these because it affects
'every ' agriculturist in the country is
the transportation question which is
forcing itaelf into prominunco in the
political platform of the country. Our
farmers do not intend that this is.suo
shall become merely operative in plat
form declarations. They propose t
use tlicir voices and votes in com
pelling every candidate who
appeals for their support
in pledge himself to vote in
accordance with their views. They
will refuao to endorse any candidate
whoso previous connection with the
monopolies or whose political record
has shown them unfit for public con
fidence. In supporting nnd electing
able and honest men they propose
through them to secure laws restrict
ing monopolies , prohibiting discrim
ination and extortion and enforcing
an equitable system of taxation by
which corporations will no longer bo
able to shirk upon the shoul
ders of the people their
just taxes toward the support
of the state. This is in part the political -
litical program of our farmers. If
possible they will carry it out within
the lines of existing parties. If not ,
through their own organization. Of
ono thing the monopolies and such
monopoly advocates as Congressman
Van Horn , of the Kansas City Jbur-
nal , may bo sure , they will not bo flat
tered or frightened from their pnr-
[ ) oso. And when told to keep to their
proper places they will reply that
their proper place in politics is that of
every other American citizen with all
the duties and responsibilities which
such citizenship carries with it.
The telegraph announces that Gui-
toau will bo arraigned for trial to-dny
in Washington and that the line of de
fense as outlined heretofore will bo
that of insanity. Mr. Scovillo the
brother-in-law of the assassin declares
that ho shall take advantage of no
technicalities in the conduct
of the easa and 'that the trial
will bo Hquaroly on the testimony pre
sented. It will be his endeavor to
show that Guitoan's mind has been
unbalanced for years , that lie has
given abundant evidences of ncuto
mania prior to his shootinc of the
president and that for days before the
tragedy ho was suffering from an ex
cited state of mind which culminated
in an act of emotional insanity.
It will no doubt bo a relief to the
country to know that the case is to bo
narrowed down to so plain an issue.
The objection that Guiteau cannot bo
tried at Washington because his vic
tim died in Now Jersey is a more
technicality which , while untenable in
law , would have afforded opportunity
for endless delay through its discus
sion. Still more wearisome to court ,
jury and the public would bo the de
fense that the president died from im
proper surgical treatment. A defense
on this plea , while equally groundless ,
because in law a criminal is respon
sible for the result of hin acts , would
open the doors to u flood of conflicting
medical testimony which would delay
its trial indefinitely.
The simple fact for the jury to con
sider will bo whether the symptoms
of chronic dcad-bcatism exhibited by
Guiteau during his checkered career ,
his lack of truthfulness , his inordinate
vanity , his lack of prudence in the
conduct of his affairs and his final ex
hibition of malignity and vindictiveness -
ness constitute insanity under the
htws. The majority of unbiassed minds
will refuse to confound criminal
instincts with mania. If characters
such as Guiteau are to bo adjudged
insane our prisons should bo converted
into hospitals and our county jails
into insane asylums. But in the
present case this is for the jury to de
termine. If dultoau was * mentally
responsible at the time lie fired the
fatal shot in last July ho must bo con
victed of murder , sentenced and ex
ecuted. If ho was not responsible for
his acts ho cannot be made to suffer
the extreme penalty of the law.

A Cabinet of n. Party or of n Faction
There are two ways in which a pres
ident may regard the formation of his
cabinet. Ho may regard it as the
strongest possible combination of his
personal friends and immediate polit
ical associates. This may bo e.illcd
the Grant theory of cabinet-making *
in accordance , with which it used to
bo said with truth that Gon. Grant
made up his cabinet as ho would his
stall' , that is , of his personal frionds.
His cabinet was short-lived and narrowly -
rowly escaped two impeachments.
On tlio other hand , the president
may regard his cabinet as the ideal
combination of the "strong men" of
the party who elected him , including
representatives of each great section
and of each wing and shade of opinion
in the party. The president may say
to himself : "I have been elected
by the republican party to carry out
its policy in government. 1
must have republican counselors , but
they must represent not a faction , but
tlio whole party. If I must bo the
president of a party , I will at least bo
the president of a whole party. " Thin
may bo called with justice the Hayes
theory of the formation of a cabinet ,
for when Mr. Hayes became president
ho did not appoint to his council
board a single man who could be
called his personal friend , and with
Sherman alone was ho measurably
acquainted. Ho took Evarts. Schurz ,
Dovens , Tompson and McCrarv- on
assumption that as men of eminence ,
integrity and experience ho would find ,
them of value as advisers and would
find it not impossible to hold intimate
personal 'relations with them , al
though they were strangers. Ho took.
Judge Key in a similar spirit and
from the opposite party o emphasize
the policy of conciliation. No cabinet
has over worked more harmoniously
than that of Mr. Hayes. Abraham
Lincoln followed the same policy in
1801. Ho called around him a cabinet
of strangers , of rivals , even , and of
great men , when a cabinet of personal
friends would have collapsed under
the tremendous pressure of events.
Gen. Garfield from his long experi
ence in national politics was in a very
different attitude from Lincoln and
Hayes. Ho counted many of the
ablest men in the party among his
personal friends , but Blaine was the-
only ono distinctively so whom ho
chose for his cabinet , and wo believe
that choice embarrassed his adminis
tration more than that of all the rest
of his cabinet , who were men of mere-
casual acquaintance with him. Our
history would show , if wo mistake not ,
that personal friends as a rule , or
friends of faction , have not made the
best cabinet material. Washington
in the beginning attempted to repres
ent all parties in his cabinet , but that
was almost before parties had formed
at all , and the two great parties of
the early time may be said to have
iluwcd in two streams from the source-
whoso issues he hoped to make one.
Since his disastrous experience , the
propriety of a partisan cabinet has
been admitted , but with an emphatic-
caution against further sub-division
and further denial of representation.
The people can abide a cabinet broad
ly representative of a great party , but
not the cabinet of a faction , the cabinet
of a part of a party.
The republicans therefore attributes
to modesty or to good-natured
thoughtlessness Attorney General
MacVeagh's recognition "to the fullest
extent of the propriety of President
Arthur selecting as his confidential
advisers gentlemen who had hereto
fore sustained relations , not only of
personal good-will ; but also ot poli
tical sympathy with him. " Is not
the president "in political sympathy"
with all "sympathy" to the class
described by Mr. MacVeagh ? Wo.
trust not , for the good of the country
and the success of President Arthur.
