Reports of combinations to defeat the
ronominatlon of President Harrison are
etlll rife , They come from Washington
and other political centers , and boar
Hiicli evidences of authenticity as to
glvo them a claim to attention. It is
stated from Washington that ox-
Spcakor Kccd and Senators Teller ,
Quay and Stewart have gone so far as
lo prepare an appeal to the republican
voters of the country urging them not
to ronominalo Harrison. A Philadel
phia paper makes the statement , on the
authority of a delegate from that city
to the Minneapolis convention , that a
combination of politicians unfriendly to
the president Is being formed , and that
it includes Quay and Cameron of Penn
sylvania , Miller and Plait of Now York ,
the friends of Algor in Michigan , Blalno
men in Maine , and the Colorado sena
There is no intimation as to whom the
promoters of this allcgo.l combination
prefer as a presidential candidate , or
whether It Is organized in the interest
of any particular man. It was staled n
few days ago that Secretary Husk had
been asked to become a candidate , but
ho firmly declined to permit his name to
bo used In that connection. Ho is loyal
to the president. Senator Sherman , it
was reported recently , had also been
discussed as an available man , but the
senator has several times said that ho is
not a candidate , and ho knows that his
republican constituents in Ohio are very
generally favorable to the ronomlnallon
of the president. Governor McKinlov
has been spoken of as a possible candi
date , but ho has distinctly avowed him-
Holf for Harrison and will go to Minne
apolis with the purpose lo earnestly sup'
port the ronominatlon of the president ,
Ex-Speaker Heed would not reject the
nominalion and General Alger may still
have a lingering hope that it will come
his way. It is quite probable , however ,
Unit the opponents of the president have
no particular man in view , and that in
order to defeat the rononiinalion of Harrison
risen almost anybody would bo accepta
ble lo them. They would jeopardize
party success and imperil the public
wolf are in order to gratify tlioir per
sonal hostility to Iho president. The
policy of the opponents of the president
appears to bo to got into the field as
many candidates as can be found , trust
ing to prevent nomination on the llrsl
ballot and by scattering votes prepare
the way for concentration. Can the op
position lo Iho president get together !
It Is extremely doubtful.
Meantime the miisdesof the party con
tinue to manifest si hearty desirn for the
rciiomination" President Harrison
Fourteen states , with a representation
in Hie national convention of 8015 , have
instructed for the president , and safi
estimates from other stales give him r
jiilllcicnt number of delegates to insure
nomination on the first b.illot by a large
majority , assuming that the instruction ;
of stale and district convonlions will be
obeyed. The strongest loaders in the
party are committed in favor of his
rcnomination. Such being the silu
alien it would scorn that no grca
danger is to bo apprehended from tin
roportoel conspiracies lo defeat Ihe evident
dent wish of the largo majority of re
publicans that Benjamin Harrison shuV
again bo the standard bearer of the
party. It is hardly possible that the
malconlcnls will bo able to exert an )
considerable inllunnco in the nationa
convention against the woll-unelerstooi
desire of the great body of ropublicai
The senate will undoubtedly insist ot
a larger appropriation for the construe
lion of war vessels thtiii is provided ii
the house bill , and n compromise wil
wrobably bo made by which more than i
single cruiser will bo added to the nav ;
before the meeting of Iho next congress
A elomocratic senator has offered at
amendment to the house bill providing
for the construction of a battle ship am
torpedo boats , and while it is not prob
able that the recommendations of the secretary
rotary of Iho navy will bo fully complioi
with , there is every reason to oxpcc
that congress will go considerably ba
yotul the promise of the house legislation
That this would bo approved by tin
intelligent judgment of the countr ;
there can bo no doubt. The genera
sentiment is favorable lo the construe
lion of a navy that will bo adequate fo
protection and defense , and ua such , !
safeguard against war. As was re
conlly salel on the lloor of the house , ii
the course of the discussion of this matter
tor , the truest economy on the part c
any nation is not to delay propuratioi
until it is involved in war. It probabl' '
will not bo questioned that the fact c
the United States being prepared t
fighl had a very great deal to do will
averting war witli Chili. Wo wore ii
a position to send a number of ship ;
into South American waters as an assurance
suranco to iho Chilians that wo wer
both able and ready to enforce our jus
demands , and the inlluence of tha
demonstration was worth volumosof dip
lonmtic correspondence. Had a simlia
trouble happened a few yearn ago thi
demands of this government would hav
been treated with contempt and its tilt !
matum scornfully disregarded. Withou
a naval force capable of defending on
own ports , lo say nothing of Ihrualunin ;
Iho ports of an enemy , wo should b
compelled to boar whalovor insult
and injuries wore put upon us , ovei
from such a power as Chili , or take th
rUU of a costly war when all peaceful o ,
furls to aoeuro a just recognition of ou
rights had failed. It is not at all In
probable , also , that our being prepare
to defend ourselves had more or .loss t

The policy that way instituted by the n
: ntbllcan parly of giving the country
luch a navy has been vindicated by
events , and the attempt of the domo-
crnts to have it abandoned when the
purpose Is not more than half atlalncd
will bo condemned by the Intelligent
opinion of the country.
It becomes more apparent from day to
day , both from the drift of sentiment
manifested in Its conventions and from
the tone of Us press , that the democratic
purty is being forced Inlo a position In
which It will line ! Itself face to face with
a jrrnvo problem when the national con
vention moots at Chicago. There ap
pears to be a lusty vigor in the Cleveland -
land element of the party that was
scarcely exported a few weeks ago , and
[ t is thrusting ilsolf upon the attention
of the country on all occasions In a
manner that at least proves the con
stancy of the ox-prosldont's followers
and Iho vitality of a bnom that was
.started directly upon the heels of defeat
four years since.
The elllemnux into which Iho demo
cracy is drifting arises chiolly from the
complicated situation In the slate of
Now York. While there is no longer any
probability whatever that Senator Hill
will have n formidable following al
Chicago , his candidacy , nevertheless ,
has an important bearing upon the
question of Iho integrity of the party in
New York , which is considered tobeol
Iho utmost consequence. Senator Hill's
New York followers are not lo ba depended -
ponded upon with absolute certainty lo
glvo an effective support to any other
candidate , but nnthini : could bo more
certain than that they will not earnestly
support Mr. Cleveland.
The Hill men lay great stress upon the
statement that their candidate can carry
his own state , and upon tills argument
they babe all their hopes of succors in
Iho convention. They assume that a
promise to del Ivor the electoral vote of
Now York will have great weight , as in
deed it would have if it were sure of
fulfillment ; but no person acquainted
with iho present temper of the factions
there will place any faith in such n
promise. There is a largo and powerful
clement in the democratic party of the
Empire stale whoso inlluonco is little
felt in the councils of the organization
and whoso very existence Booms to be
ignored by the leaders until the rural
districts are heard from on election day.
The town elections in that state Ibis
spring , resulting in the most remarkable
series of republican triumphs known
there in many years , may fairly bo taken
as an indication of the attituelu of llu
country democracy lowni-d the policy o
Senator Hill and his lieutenants. The
Cleveland sontimenl , weak and timid ii
the great centers of population , is correspondingly -
spondingly strong in Iho rural com
The problem al Chicago will not lie ir
the choice between Cleveland and Hill ,
but rather in the choice between Cleveland -
land and some oilier candidate whollj
free from entangling alliances witli
jithor. It is not likely that a selection
can bo made that will bo satisfactory It
both factions , and it is to bo expectci
thai there will bo a sound of Iho sharp

trifle when wo take into accotrit tin

Only a few weeks ago an item of S",00i

Tim federal authorities Imvo Insti
tuted proceedings at Philadelphia
against tlio American Sugar Hollnlng
company , familiar to the country as thu
sugar trust. The action Is brought
under the anil-trust law enacted by the
ast congress , and it will afford as com
plete a test of the act as it is perhaps
> osslblo to secure. The Sugar Refining
: ompuny Is organized under the laws of
tfow Jersey , and olalmi to bo not. ti
; rust , but a corporation of that state ,
having the right to own property ir
other states , to trade and manufacture
in them , and to engage in intcrsttile
commerce. The intent of the antl-trusl
law Is to exclude from Interstate trade
corporations which enter into combina
tions to monopolize any pat-lot the trade
or commerce among the several states
or with foreign nations. It would soon
to bo entirely plain that the law is ap
plicable to Ihe sugar Irust , which is un
deniably monopolistic in its purpose ,
The proceedings in this case will be re
garden ! with universal interest. The
government should next eiiroct Its at
icntion lo the anthracite coal combine
which is quite as much a monopoly as
the sugar trust and is perhaps capaulo o
oven metro serious exactions. The ad
ministration is doing well in its efforts
lo enforce the act passed by n ropublicai
congress and approved by Prenldo'i
Hart ison for the suppression of trust ;
and like combinations , and an attack or
the coal combine will still further com
mend its labors in this direction t <
