It ban decided upon Juno 2-1 ns the date. The independent will nominate their ticket before the democrats meet. This moans that the democrats of the state propose to innko nn aggresnlvo campaign - paign and that they aim to take ndvun- tagn of the diversion of the nllianco men from republican ranks. Governor IUic3 will probably bo ronominatcd without opposition , and tlio party platform will not vary greatly from that of former years except to make a strong bid for farmer votes. It is safe to conclude , however , that places will bo kept open on the domocrntiu ticket for such trades as the alliance can bo Induced to accept. The republicans of Iowa are not split by factions at prosont. They reali/.o the danger which menaces thorn through the disaffection among farmers. They also know that the democrats will endeavor - deavor to entra ] ) the nllianco republicans - ans and divide the voles between the three parties so as to give the democrats control of the principal ollices. The republicans - publicans will have the advantage of en- It-ring the Held after the other tickets nro riindo up , and with good nominations and n c-lean-cut platform in accord with the good sense of Iowa voters generally , should and will bo able to hold the state to its allcgmnco to the republican party. Tlio farmers of Iowa have no just grievance against the republican ; * . The party in that state has not been dominated - ated by railroad intlucnccs , nor has it boon neglectful of the interests of pro ducers. The alliance movement over there is largely made up of disgruntled republicans ) , ex-greenbackors , walking delegates of one so called reform or an other. The yeomen of the state will have ample time to uncover the ambush into which those allies of democracy sock to lead the party which has made Iowa great and wealthy and which has never failed in its duty to the people. The last legislature of South Dakota wns not a hrillinnt t-uccess , but onu of its acts promises to keep it in grateful ro- nicnibrnnuo. Authority wns granted townships throughout the state to Dond themselves for the ptirposo of boring artesian wolK The whole region from Ynnkton to Chniiihorliiin seem ? to bo in- ulndud in the artesian bolt. Wherever wells have boon sunk a good How of water under pro.isur ? is obtained at depths varying from 800 to 2,500 feet. The well at Yanklon hns a pressure of 70 pounds and the now ono at Huron nearly or quite two hundred pounds. The latter throws a stream through a two and one-half inch nozzle to a height of 170 foot. The more or less rainless farm Innd of South Dakota is iiuulo productive by moans of those wells and the problem of cultivation simplified. An example is cited of two fields on the same section lust year. Ono watered from an artesian well' yielded 20 bushels ot wheat to the aero and the other , dependent upon the season's rainfall , but live bushols. The law passed by the legislature hns already stimulated the farming com munities to avail themselves of this natural resource and before the working season is ptifa.sed there will bo scores of flowing wells giving vigor to the vege tation and making the farmers inde pendent. Those same wells are used nl&o for mills and factories. The big well at Huron has power enough to run a ono hundred and fifty barrel flouring mill , and water enough , if the flow continues at the rale of 10,000 gallons per minute , as at present , to furnish every mini , woman and child in the state four gallons lens of water every 21 hours. The water is at present wasting itself in the .lim Klvor , but sooner or later it will bo utilized for power nnd irrigation. There can bo no question about it. South Dakota has seized a prosperous future with a grip which will never lot it escape. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ MIA /SB / t'llOM nJH ilXKMY. The Now York Sun , in an article warn ing the democracy against overconfidence dence and the mistake of under-rating the strength of their opponents , says of the present administration that it has been on the whole safe and conservative. ' 'It hns boon free from scandals , and in the case of the department of state and the navy department it has performed use ful and oven brilliant service. " The .S'loi does not regard the abilities of President Harrison ns of tlio first order , "but they are moro than respectable , " and the fact is recognized thnt the country , which wns at first in clined to rate him too low , Is now Inclined to admit that ho is a shrewd and practical politician. It acknowledges that the president is "the master of his administration , " that his administration "has been moro than an average performance , " and that the re publicans will not have to make many apologies for him. This praise , from a source which would bo very glad to condemn if there wns the least chnnco for condemnation , is the strongest possible testimony to the success of the present nd- mintstratlon and to the excel lent impression that President Harrison risen hns made upon the minds of all intelligent , discriminating and can did people. It is undoubtedly true , as the .Sim says , that at llrst the country was inclined to make too low an estimate of iho ability of the president. It had forgotten that ho undo an excellent tvrord in the United States sonnto , and ho was regarded rather as a shrewd politician than IIB a statesman. Nothing very notable was expected of his admin istration. Public sentiment has under gone a very great chnngo , nnd all fair- minded men concede that President HnrrtMin is fully entitled to he regarded as a statesman of exceptional ability. As ho said a few days ago , ho hns endeavored to make his adminis tration distinctively a business mlminln- t rat Ion , and it cannot bo questioned that ho lias succeeded In doing so. There has not been in our hit-lory an adminis tration that accomplished to much of a prnctlcal nature in its first two years , and there Is every reason to expect that what has been done will hoof permanent benefit to to the country. Politics has received comparatively little attention from this administration , whoso con stant aim hns boon to promote measures which would advance the material 'welfare of the whole nation. Tlio promise is that this Is the purpose to which the principal work of the adminis tration will still bo devoted , nnd if the remaining years of the term bring re sults as important as those thus far achieved , the administration will have made a record of usefulness entitling it to n very high place in history. The republican party has no apologies to make for President Harrison and Is not likely to bo called upon to make any. Ho has most amply justified its confidence , nnd every day ho is gaining strength with the party and for the party. The country has learned to regard him as in every respect worthy of his exalted ofllco , and there Is a universal feeling that while ho remains in it the interests and welfare of the whole country will bo wisely and faithfully subserved. The S'ldi Is right in saying that in the next campaign the republicans will light with their usual energy and abundance of resource , and the record of the admin istration , wise , clean nnd practical , will bo a source of strength to the party in every bcctlon of the country. irK AGAIX.Y ACTION. Tlio election of Prince Bismarck to the rolchstag is really a mutter of world wide interest , which is in no wise de tracted from by the fact that ho found it necessary to go to the people twice and then ran a good deal behind the vote of his national liberal predecessor. It is very well understood that Hlsmnrck had powerful forces to combat. Uesldcs his natural fees , the socialists , who are very strong in the district where ho ran , ho had the potent influence of the govern ment against him. This opposition was not openly manifested , but it is not to bo doubted that a great deal was in sidiously done by the government against the p.\-chancellor , and with what efl'ect his reduced vote in compar ison with that of his predecessor boars testimony. It was fully understood that the imperial wish was that Bismarck should bo defeated , nnd the measure of its influence in tlio district would seem to bo 2,000 votes. The dispatches from Berlin indicate some anxiety in government circles regarding the reappearance of Bis- imircic in public life , and in a posi tion where ho can bo extremely trouble some to the imperial rule should ho bo disposed to bo. The first effect upon the government of his election is seen in the efforts to so conciliate the various parties as to unite them in the govern ment's interests. This is a kind of busi ness which calls for a very comprehen sive order of statesmanship , and it maybe bo doubted whether the emperor himself or his present advisors are quite equal to tlio task. When the widely differing demands of the various parties are considered , the granting of some of which would not bo com patible with the concession ol others. The dillicultios in tlio way of successfully carrying out a general pol icy of conciliation are obviously very great , and the opportunities for mis takes proportionately numerous. Chan cellor Caprivi seems to have started in woll. It remains to bo seen how he will come out. Meanwhile not only all Germany , but pretty much all of continental Europe , will watch with profound interest the reappearance of Bismarck in nn nronn his relations to which will bo entirely different from what they were heretofore. What will the great statesman and politician do ii his now character as a popular represen tative ? Ho is reported as having sail that ho would never attack any policy directly initiated by the emperor , or say anything to give his opponents r reason for charging him with attacking the emperor from personal motive.1' , This would scorn to put him inn positioi whore ho would not bo dangerous to the government as an opponent of its poll cies , but it Is possible for him to , ' \ observe his promise nnd still expose and criticise demands of tlio government which have not the stamp of imperial origin , and ho wilt still be free to point out the faults of omission as well ns commission. If cor rectly reported , Bismarck believes that the greatest danger to Germany is from within rather than from without. The country has not the same unquestioning confidence in its rulers that it formerly had , and the evidence the young em peror has given of his liability to vaga ries of a moro or less startling nature has caused n very general fooling of un rest and uncertainty regardintr the future. Whether Bismarck in the roichstiig will bo able to do anything to allay nnd reduce this feeling Is alto gether problematical , but it is certain that his every action nnd utterance in that boay Will bo regarded with the keenest interest throughout Europe. TIIK National Educational association of the United States will hold Its con vention this year at Toronto , Canada , thus giving an international character to the mooting , which is expected to bo unprecodcntedly Interesting and suc cessful. American teachers who will at tend the convention are promised a most enjoyable sojourn in the ilno Canadian city , preparations being already afoot to give them most cordial welcome and hos pitable ontortninmeiit. There are few moro delightful places to visit than Toronto in summer , and as transporta tion rates will bo made very favorable for those attending the convention , it will atlord an exceptionally gocxl oppor tunity to teachers for enjoying their summer holiday , To MUSIC lovers an interesting sug gestion In connection with the Colum bian exposition is to hold a grand music festival in which every state shall bo represented. The Idea in to form n national choral union , embracing the l > est singers of every state , to include not less than 5,000 voices nnd not to exceed 10,000. Each state would bo expected to establish an organized chorus , trained by Its own director , its si/.o to bo proportioned tioned to the population of the htato. These would be united under one head into the grand national chorus which would take part at the exposition in n festival of eng that might be continued fora week , or even longer- . , The plan cor templates in early organisation of state choruses , o that they fjM hl have ample time for n-oparatloti , utul the ultimate object Is ho rroatlotf < > f < a permanent national horus , which ! bj periodic festivals of n similar chnractcr would arouse an Inter est in music of the host kind throughout the country and furnish an education In he art that would bo of Incalculable benefit. The plan is not necessarily 1m- ) 'aelicablo , though obviously a grout leal of difficulty would bo encountered n carrying it out. It is said to have re ceived the cordial endorsement of Thoo- lore Thomas , which is perhaps sutllclont .0 . remove any doubt as to whether so argo n chorus could bo handled effect- vely. The opportunity to exhibit the musical talent of our people which the world's fair will give certainly ought to je improved. Tnu farmers of Now England are find ing moro dllliculty than usual this year in securing farm labor , and as n consequence quence tholr spring work is a good deal less advanced than it ought to be. They ire offering $2" ) a month and board , equivalent to perhaps $10 n month with out board , winch is hotter compensation than thousands of men are getting In the cities , yet with thousands of Idle people In the cities the induce ment is not sufficient to tempt enough of them into the country to supply the demand for farm labor. There is doubtless moro than ono reason for this , but perhaps the chief one is the disinclination of men to exchange the excitement and variety of city life for the quiet and monotony of country ex istence. They will suffer privation , working long hours for . barely pay enough to subsist on in n city , rather than to endure rural loneliness with whatever reward of physical comfort and opportunity to accumulate money. It Is a mistake , but it is one that it is useless to preach against. TIIK now organization of real estate owners is now fairly ready for business. It only needs the co-operation of indi viduals to make it a success. At the meeting tonight the outline ot the pur poses of the association , as shown by its articles of incorporation , will bo pre sented for the final consideration of the people generally. There should be n largo attendance and an enthusiastic ap proval of the excellent work performed by the committee on organization. Prop erty owners , small and great , are invited to become members and help push the good cause along. BY what authority can n suspended city olllcinl collect fees or pretend to transact any city business ; ' What right hns Garbagomastor Morrlssoy , whoso confirmation is hold up by the council , to levy upon the owners of garbage teams nnd collect foes in advance for permits1 ; This is n piece of piracy which the council should promptly in vestigate nnd squelch. Suppose nny other officer whoso npnointment hns boon hold up shqa'ld do such work , would ho not bo guilty of a criminal misdemeanor meaner ? CITIZENS of nil parties nnd shades of political opinion warmly commend the action of tlio ntno councllmen who voted to reconsider and hold up the con firmation of the Into garbage master. It shows that the council is not entirely heedless of public opinion , and is willing to glvo our citizens some protection against the garbage gathering ringstors. ASSKSSMKNTS of personalty in Omnhn have generally been n farce. Are the assessors doing any thing to redeem tholr past reputation ? Are millions of del lars' worth of property which should boar its proportion of the burdens of government to bo overlooked ns usual ?

This fact is noted because It is unusual and because TIIK BKK desires to give credit to this body upon the slightest pretext. TIIK ex-warden of tlio Joliet peniten tiary has been appointed chief of police in Chicago. His extended acquaintance with tlio noted and notorious citizens of the latter city eminently fits him for the place. IT Is observed that when John B.

Not nn inllucntial republican Journal in the west has had n good word for it. The Idea has been condemned by every paper between the Allcgtiomcs nnd thu Pacific which hns n right to speak for the party or which knows the party's sentiments or Interests , From the start , indeed , the movement was fatally . The so-called commercial handicapped. - con gress , which recently met in Kansas City , was designed to bring the project forward and put it in practical shape , but this gath ering killed nil chances which the Idea ever ahd of establishing Itself. Tile Most Severe Critics. Aril' Yitrii Xnr * . Some one has said that , generally , experi ence makes the critic. The statement is un doubtedly correct , hut it is auib iguous in that It does not specify as to the kind of ex perience which brings about the result. The man who has no idea ns to thu details of news getting and publishing Is generally the most severe critic of the newspaper and the chap who never outers u church , except on the occasion s'I casion of a fuiior.il or wedding , is usually tpilto prompt to criticise the preacher.

Ilroai'li ol' Promise Trials. Sc/cw-i enln lfr. Men are not constituted with tender , flut tering hearts as women aro. They are sturdier philosophers , too , and comfort them selves In the disappointments of love by the brutal maxim that there are as flue fish iu the sea ns over were caught. These diametrical ly opposite conditions suggest that men ought not to bo permitted to decide questions where n woman's heart nnd n woman's love bo composed of women and not of men. Man is unlitteU for weighing iu the nice balance of equity a woman's affections on one side and n bag of gold on the other. The womanly sense of Justice nud her keen uppiecialion of the sufferings of the disappointed of her sex , are Just the qualities Jurors in breach of promise cases demand , nnd they make a com bination that cannot ho found In all creation outside of the ranks of the gentler sex. On the whole , we beliovu that a woman's Jury system for this class of cases would re sult in equal Justice to all around. l\tSSlX < i .TESTS. AIIOL'NMI TOWN" . r/ifniio / Journal.

Thanks to Lho efforts and pluck of a few notable men wo have developed llttlo by llttlo our capa bilities as builders of Iron ships until today wo can build us line ships as any nation In the world ami iu the matter of durability nnd llnlsh perhaps bettor ones. It may be asked , then , why wo are asking congress to help us. Decauso the American capitalist loU interest in shipping and was lured tiwny to investing in railroads by'.ho popular cry , 'We cannot compote with the British anil other mari time nations on the .seas. ' . 1 toll you that \vo can compote with them. Start us up and foster us as they were fostered and we will not only compote with them , but will wipe them out. " Mr. Hughes explained that Kiiglmid created her iron steamship lines by paying the most liberal kind of .subsidies. SLe said to a corporation , "Wo want a line of steamers to , such and &uch ports , of such and such n speed. Now how much do you require to help you carry out this enterprise ; " And i > ho paid what was required. When they had de veloped that trade to those ports she gradu ally reduced the subsidy until , perhaps , she took it away entirely. Then she .sUirtcd new lilies and developed business with .somo other country. The result wns that she became the gif.i man u fact u ring . unit exporting country that she Is , am' , so to spoaU , gobbled the trade of the world. "IJut , " continued Mr. Hughes , "wo have done nothing to dovolopour merchant manno iu the foreign trndo .sine.1 the rebellion. We have the finest fleet of coasters iu the world. Why ! liecuuso they have been protected. Wo'aro the largest manufuetiiring nation on the earth. Why I Hecauso our manufac turers t have been protected. They have had valuable rights of wa3" given to them nnd hud land grants. The government has en dorsed their bonds. They have been fostered and nursed up , until today they are capable of taking care of themselves. A few years ago wo hud no navy. Wo nro now building up a navy which , according to the testimony of Mr. Byles. ono of the greatest expert ma riners the land over had , is destined to bo ono of the finest in the world. There is no diffi culty in getting any reasouablo sums voted bv congress for the increase of the navy. What caused this change iu popular senti ment ! The education of the people to the necessity of the navy. " Mr. Hughes has been making some calcu lations upon the direct advantage to the people ple in American ports. lie says of his own line , which ho modestly declares to bo the finest licet of Yankee ships afloat , that they cause the cxnendituro yearly In the city of Now York for crews , wages , pilotages , stevedores , supplies , repairs , coal , etc. , not counting comll missions of any kind , or extraordinary ro- pairs , but purely and simply moneys expended for what the ships , so to speak , consume , over ifl.IiCO.OOO. "Our actual pay rolls for crows , wages and labor employed on shore Is about ? T.5)00. ( ) ( ) You will say that foreign ships also spend money when they como to our ports , . They do. but they spend as little as possible in the foreign port and as much ns possible iu the home port. They never dock ' their ships over horo. Their crows do not got their wages over here , they buy ns little at possible over hero or only such articles ns they can buy cheaper than at home. And If w'J had our ships wo would spend as llttlo abroad as possible and as much ut home. -IXXEJtA. . < S OKS 1) IN IIS TElt. They Have Given Up Karmiii anil Gone to Gainl'lint ; . ST.

Wo of the south , chielly agleul - tural , have felt this evil with crushing force , for the high protcctivo system of the ropublN can party for the benefit of the manufactur ing interests , mainly of the north , has opor atcd in a twofold manner to injure us by de pressing the price of our cotton and greatly increasing the cost of the many articles wa nro compelled to buy with the proceeds.
