183 Omaha , Ncl > ;
The republicans of the United States
bavo chosen as their standard bearers in
the national campaign of 1881 lhat
matchless leader , James G. Blaine , the
man who of all others is moat deeply -
ly enshrined in the hearts of his country
men , and that gallant veteran , Gen.
John A. Logan , who has achieved re
nown on the forum , on Jlio battlefield
and in the halls of congress. No man in
America inspires moro genuine and fer
vid enthusiasm among the republican
names than the "Plumed Knight , " and
no candidate could have boon named at
Chicago who could fan thn dull oinbora
of latent patriotic republicanism to moro
intense white heat than the Great Com
moner from the state of Maine. If bril
liant genius and aggressive leadership
id ono in its standard bearer wcroa guaran
tee of triumphant success , the republican
partyjcould fool assured on aglorious vic
tory in November. But while yielding tone
no man or journal in our sincere admi
ration for the uoblo and manly qualities
of James G. Blaine , whom wo have sup
ported aa our choice for president in
1870 and 1880 , wo realize that the re
publican party lias reached a crisis in its
history , in which the nomination of
James G. Blaine bcomca an extra hazard
ous experiment. It is not a question
whether the reliable republican status of
Kansas , Iowa and Nebraska will roll up
from 25,000 to 60,000 for Blaine and
Logan , but whether the doubtful states
of Now York , Indiana and Now Jersey
can bo carried in the face of the known
and pronounced opposition to Mr. Blaine
and among the independent voters of
those elates. It was bccauao wo have
boliovcd Chester A. Arthur , with his
clean-handed administration , discreet ,
conciliatory policy , was by nil odds the
safest man for the republican partyat thio
critical juncture that wo have urged his
claims abovo'thoso of all other competi
tors for the presidency. Wo fervently
hope that the choice of the national con
vention , inspired by zealous onUiusiadtn
rather than cool , deliberative judgment ,
will load the party to triumphant vic
tory. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

but the plan ol making the employee pay

ly nn outrageous impoiltion. If an cm-
ployo is injured owing to the negligence
of the railway company it is not only the
duty of the company to take care of him ,
but to pay him a reasonable amount of
money for his injuries. If an employe
becomes nick , through no fault of the
company , ho is bound to pay the expensed
of his own treatment , and in the majority
of cases employes would prefer to do BO ,
as well ns to liavo their own physician.
It la a poor railway company that cannot
aflbrd'to take care of iU employes who
are injured through its negligence , with
out calling for a general assessment.
iMMicmATlo.v to this country this year
has fallen off about twenty per cent.
Our exports are also twenty per cent be
hind the volume of 1883. The wages of
labor Imvo boon reduced. Tlioro has
boon an unexampled decline in the prices
of Blocks. The prospective demand for
our exportable crops is not encouraging.
Under thcso circumstances , notwith
standing the country ia rich' and money
is plentiful , it is an excellent time for
economy and retrenchment. There
should bo no stoppage of business and no
hesitation as to investment of permanent
value ; but wo should go nlow and safely
until the season of recuperation seta in.
TUB national republican convention is
making good progress , and will probably
conclude ita labors Saturday night. Tlio
convention of 1880 mot on Wednesday
nnd effected n temporary organization.
On Thursday n permanent organization
was accomplished. The third day was
occupied with reports of committees nnd
the discussion of contested cases. Satur
day was mainly tnkon up with dilatory
motions and remark ; , nnd it was not un
til the evening of hnt day that the pro
ceedings got ns far as the nominating
speeches. The balloting began on Mon
day of the succeeding week , nnd wan con
cluded on Wednesday ,
AT this time it affords one pleasure to
read again the famous apooch of Col.
Robert Q. Ingorsoll , in presenting the
name of James 0. lll.iino at Cincinnati
in 1870. That grand speech applies as
well to Mr. Blaine to-day as it did eight
years ago. It was the eloquent Ingorsoll
who gave to Blaine the name ot "tho
Plumed Knight. " It was Illinois , through
Col. Ingorsoll , that presented the name
of Blaine in 1870 , and now , in 1881 ,
Illinois has the pleasure of at last making
"tho Plumed Knight" the nominee of
the republican party , and the next , pros-
idont of the United States.

England has boon shaken up again by
another dynamite earthquake , caused by
dynamite explosions , in the very heart of
London. The English people are- maddened -
doned by the thought that no life is safe
if such outrages continue to bo possible
in the heart of the metropolis. The explosions -
plosions followed shortly upon the intro
duction of Trovolyau's Irish land bill ,
The inference is legitimate that the
bafllod Nationalists had again vented
their displeasure in dastardly mischief.
Tlioro can bo no excuse offered for the
authors of the dynamite explosion in
London. It is a sousoless way to carry
on war , oven were thbro justification for
oxtrerao measures , aa it never roaches
thoao who are directly responsible for the
ills under which Ireland suffers , It has
has not oven the loqio of the nihilist , who
throws his dynamite bomb at the man
who represent * the powoi of the
Btato. In the case of this London ox-
plosion and the other dynamite plots
which have gone before it , innocent
people sufTor for the sins of the govern
ment under which they live. The thir
teen victims of this latest explosion had
no moro lo do in shaping Gladstone's
j I Irish policy than a * though they had
lived at the Capo of Good Ilopo. Viewed
In this light , the men who sot off thcso
explosions are nothing moro than mur
derers , and will bo treated as such , if
caught. They cannot como in under
cover of any political shield. Their crime
is a crime igainst humanity , and not an
olTonso against any form of government ,
and it does not deserve the sympathy of
any right-thinking man or woman. The
dynamiters are injuring the Irish cause ,
and the Irish people would take stops to
denounce the ttso of dynamito. Ho long
as the dynamite warfare is pursued they
can never expect any redress for their
griovancies or amglorallon of jtholr condi
tion at the hands of the English rulers-
What sympathy may exist among the
English people for suffering Ireland will
surely bo destroyed by dynamite. Does any
sane man suppose that if the explosions
in London had killed fifteen prominent
Englishmen , and destroyed a dozen of the
linoflt public buildings , Irish independ
ence would bo nearer by an hour than it
was before ? Docs any uano man suppose
that if to-morrow Victoria and Gladstone
should bo slain by Irish bomb or bullet ,
and Buckingham 1'alaco and 'Westminis
ter Abbey blown to atoms by Irhh mines ,
England would drop upon her knees and
beg Ireland to depart in peace ? la it not
ai cortninjas anything undetermined can
ha that if the patrons of dynamite should
achieve such diabolical success it would
bo the beginning of a tremendous failure ?
that England instead of relaxing her
grip on Ireland , would tighten it , and
that the advocates of mercy and moder
ation in dealing with an unhappy country
would bo swept out of sight by a storm
of popular wrath and vungoanco ? The
bitterest onpmios of Ireland can not wish
her a heavier or deadlier blow than
would surely fall if the hitherto compara
tively harmless attempts of the invinct-
blcs should bo followed by a wholesale
destruction of lifo and property. The
worst tyranny Ireland has over endured
from England would bo mild and benevo
lent as compared with the iron yoke
which English hands would rivet upon
Irish nocks. When such fanatical knaves
and fools as O'Donovan Roaaa and his
associates boast of the blessings which
dynamite will bring to Ireland , they show
stupendous ignorance of English nature
and of the darkest lessons in Anglo-Irish
Lord llandolph Churchill comes into
constant prominence as the coming man
inT the leadership of the Tory party.
There arc two men in this young scion
ol the IIouso of Maryborough. Ono of
them is a rough-spoken and ill-mannered
Esau , who seeks opportunity to mnko
himself offensive to bettor men than
himself. The other is an inchoate states
man , with broad views on many points on
which the arorago Englishman and much
moro the avontgo Tory , is narrow and
obtiiEi. The latter of the two has boon
coming to the front of late , moro than
the former. In opposition to the efforts
olpi Lord Salisbury to convert the Tory
party into an aristocratic clique , Lord
Churchill has insisted on an appeal to
the conservatism and rather "jingoiah"
patriotism of the common people.
lia1 this ho follows the ex
ample of Disraeli , who was
ready to boast of having boon an extreme
radical and an oxtomo conservative , but
never the compromise called a whig. In
his attitude towardslrish questions , Lord
Churchill has made a break from his
party. lie resisted the attempts to
amend the franchise bill so as to exclude
Itoland from its benefits , and otherwise
declared his openness to consider any
claims . that Ireland had to English con
sideration. On this point Lord Churchill
might : make a brilliant and successful
record , if ho had the knowledge and
audacity required for that purpose. IIo
iew a disbeliever in free trade , and ho
would find little difficulty in showing
that all the liberal attempts to settle the
Irish question failed because
they ; do nothing _ for the promo
tion . of Irish manufacture.
Unfortunately , it is ono of the matters
which Irishmen seem very unlikely to
take into the earnest consideration it de
mands. Mr. I'arnoll , like Gladstone ,
persists in regarding the land question as
the great iasuo. If the tprlos under Lord
Churchill were to strike in on thia line ,
they might nll'cot nn alliance with Orange
mut Green for the promotion of Irish in
terests , which would leave both the Koine
rulers and liberals very far to the roar.
Lord Churchill hns made an admirable
beginning I , although ho has so offended
the Irish lories that they Imvo cancelled
hia invitation lo uddroes them in Dublin ,
Tlio publio mind is somewhat pacified
us to General Gordon. It is now under-
olood thnt his present position involves
no further peril than during his former
residence in the country when suppressing
the slave trade. If ho has no organized
force nt his command , neither has ho any
organized enemy lo oppose , , tlio Mahai

El Oooid that Gordon is lu at Khartoum.
The 1'aU Afntt Oascttci continues to
threaten the ministry with immediate de
feat if they submit to the "multiple con
trol" of Egypt. The Daily News and
other ministerial papers observe thai
while the treaty of July , 1840 , which sot
tied the status of Egypt , and the conven
tiou'of the following year remain in force
England is bound by her engagements to
all the othpr w'snatorios. Anything like
annexation or independent action wouli
bo a deliberate broach of good faith , ant
would at onoo reopen the whole cos ton

Russia should keep good faith as to th
Black Sea and the road to India , she can
not sot the example of violating her own

Tbo Maine legislature carefully considered

Idorod tlio innliKulty uf thcso remorseless
landorera , tbo mombo of tbo Maine legls-
Blaturo gave Mr. lilniuo tbo seal of their

That should put nn end forever to any difl-

orrosKi ) TO THICKKKT.
Mr lilaino certainly needs no dofonao frqm
ho hands of anyone. Everything that ha.-
) oen used aeainst him ia so much burnet
mwdor. I should Hot nlludo to thia rocori !
nlk if it were not for the fact that n , corta n
: ! asa of ropublintni still poroist in tbo fiction
if boliovlng that ho Is really n bad , imtnist-
vorthy man.
But In order tonnivo nt a correct estimate
uf him ono should take bis entire llfu as . .
mis for judgment. No man ia parfoct. Mr.
Maine bns undoubtedly inido niialako' , nnd
10 has beim severely piinisboil. Hut tbero U
: io toasoiivby the mtutakcs elionld bo dwelt
ipon no tbo true inilicnllons of bla character.
IIo has fehown biimolf to bo as independent in
Bplrit an nny great party lender could have
'icon. It should bo remembered of him that
: io voted ngainst tbo juggling electoral com
nisslon bill , which wna denmndod by the
rigid pattUana of that day. Both Blnluo mid
Rankling , two of tbo highest typos of the ro-
mblic.ina of that ported , opposed that bill.
It wns through Mr. BlainoV ) Influence that
.bo force bill , a ineaeura of bis party , wna dc-
oated In tbo liouso. While bo bos boon al
ways loyal to tbo close union of tbo nations
m this continent with reciprocity treaties
jotwoon them ns against the old world wonli
mvo given a now to bis party when it wns
right , bo baa never hesitated to atsort bit In-
lopondonco when it claimed his allegiance in
a course which bo could not approve.
Tbo best thing about Mr. Blnino and it is
ono that should not bo forputton - in thn facl
that lie Is nn American. iUlo is a republican
in tbo best BOIIBO of the word. Ho is na much
opposed to orthodox forms In politics for
form'ii sake ns Ingoraoll la ia religion. Tbero
s nothing for which bo has so sincere a con
tempt na for affectation of any kind.

3 worlc upon the Bocond volume. Thin bo
111 Imvo completed by the first of nest T > o-
jmbor , notwitliatandim ? Ids nomination , bo
aving mndo his mind to thnt cIToct.
Ho has found n strnngo pleasure in wilting
sbook. llo linn boon nil bis lifo since hid
illoso-daya n student of American history ,
hero is no man in public or private lifo to-day
ho Is fo thoroughly familiar with the growth
itl progress of his own country ns Mr. Blnlne.
is memory Is a inirvcjous ono. Ho retains
Ithout dlllicitlty anything bo roads , nnd rare-
. . ' errs in his hhtoric.il [ illusions. It is n mater -
er of gront piido with him that the first vol-
moot his history has not yet bad nny of its
icts questioned , It is his idea thnt n man
; ho writes history should have no other object
inn the honest recital of facts connected
ith the period which lie is necking tu du-
: ribo. Where history is written with a cor-
liu object in view , the history itself is too
[ it to bo colored to bo of value to tlio impar-
ill student. Mr. Blaine thinks that
13 ono fault of tka brilliant and
rent Macnulny'B History of JSugland
thnt it was written with the object ot BUS-
lining the Whig party. Ho has tried in his
urk to have no object in view beyond giving
i impartial record of the period covered by
Is hibtory , It is for tbo public to decide bow
ir ho has succeeded. Originally bo had nn
den of writing his memoirs , Thia would have
Ivcn an opuortuuity for n closer record of
ersonal observation , n d would have nleo
ivon room for a lighter vein of treatment.
VIth his fitrotig descriptive powers , hia oxcol-
> nt knowledge of men , nnd memory for oven
ic gossips ot hii time , his memoirs would
ave possessed extraordinary intsrest. It is
osslblo that Mr. Blaine may yet wiito bucb a
ork. With bis rcstdred health ho promises
o bo n figure upon the American stage for tbo
ext twenry yoara. Ho ia too active-minded
muu to o\cr remain idle.
Ho has n great fund of personal anecdotes
hi b bo employs in the most apt w.iy upon
early every oo.asion. Ho tolls bin stories ns
huenjojod them himself , and they very
ften emphasize his meaning aa no heavier ni-
uinent could do.
Summing up , ono finds so much to admire
n bia varied information , hia social culture ,
is power and individuality ns a statesman in
lie true Eonso of tbo word , that ono is cou-
tan tly tempted in tbo direction of oxtrovn-
ant eulogy. If onowislies to bo Mr. Bluine's
ncmy ho must keen nway from him , beyond
ho roach of hia voice , nnd clo3o bis eyes nnd
ars to anything but the ancient ntorio.j of his
ormcr enemies , many of whom nro to-dny bis
rlcnds. Criticism of this brilliant and nblc
nan thould bo left to those who know that
hey nro bettor than be ; by men who bavo
lever mndo nuy mistakes ; by tboso who bavo
.Iwnys done right , and whoso ono regret in
[ fo is the Borrowful fact that the majority of
niounro not like unto them in goodness.
HIS ronruNB.
The stories of his largo receipts from his
look have not boon at all exaggerated. Ho
eccivoj SO cents a volume from his publishers.
They now believe they will sell a half a mil-
ion copies of this book. This will give Mr.
Jlaino $100,000 , for his year's work. It is
tot unreasonable to suppose that these who
) tiy tbo first volume will jompleto their pur
chase by buying tbo aecond. This will give
Mr. Blaine ever 8750,000 as the fruit of his
irst venture into the rich pastures of histori
cal literature.
Mr. Blaino'd present fortune is ono that has
)0i3ii a subject of a great deal of gossip. It
ins been estimated by some romancers to be
ns high as two million dollars. This Is nn
mormons exaggeration. I In la undoubtedly
n easy circumstances , and hns enjoyed for
earn a liberal income from hia Pennsylvania
coal properties. Mr. Blaine once said to a
visitor that ho was richer than any of tbo so-
called millionaires of the day , because bo had
M that ho wanted. He ia not nn avaricious
nan. Ho is not niggnrdly in his expenditures ,
neither ia ho lavish. Ho seema to have joined
'u the liberal mid hospitable froo-baiuleduess
if tlio west tbo conservative carefulness of the
His style of living nt Washington has al"
vays been comfortable , uover extravagant ,
fin carriages and horses would never attract
lotico anywhere , while at iho same time they
are plenty good enough for any gentleman to
ube ,
In bla manners Mr. Blnina Is essentially a
lomocrat. Ho never yet in any of the van-
us periods of li's ' career boa shown any pride
< f place. Ho is ulmplo and unaffected. Ho
larbnrs few , if any , resentments , The gene-
nl public have supposed him to be agio-it
iiemy of ConltlitifrV. This is nut true. Ha
vould is willingly khako hand * with Colliding
o morrow , if Colliding would inent him halt-
yay , as he would with any of bis former asso-
Mutes. Ho Jinn intense pride , and a most
lory temper when provoked , but when bid
ugo explodes no Numbering resentment is left
lobind , Ho docs not bollovo In tbo utate-s-
mnnsblp of rovongo. Upon this mibject ho
aid ono day : " Lifo Is too short to Ho In waiter

Tno republicans of tba United Stntos do

nud approved political opinions , They don -
n nd a statesman ; they demand a reformer
after an well aa baforo the election. They do-
naad a politician In the blgheat , broadest ani'
uest senss
They demand a man acquainted with public
affairs , with tbo wanU of the people ; with
not only the requirements of the hour , but
with tha demands of Iba future.
They demand a man broad enough to ; com
prebend tbo relations of the government t
tha other n&t'.ona ol t to earth. They domanii
a man well versed In tha powers , du-
tloi , and prerogatives of each and every de
partment of tbla government. They demand
a man who will sacredly preserve the tinan
clal honor of the United States : ono who
knows enough to know that tlio national debt
must bs paid through the prosperity of our
people ) one who knows enough to know tha' h
all the financial theories of the world cannot
redeem a single dollar : one of who knows ( U
enough to know that all the money must be
made , not by law , but by labor ; ono who
knowi enough to know that the people oi the
United States bavo the Industry to make the
