REPUBLICS ARE UNGRATEFUL
Ouite recently The Chronicle had
something to say respecting the ungrate'
fulness of republics, especially as shown
in the history of the cases of Gen. Sutter
and Gen. Fremont. Another case has
just been called to our notice. George

Weekly, 1 year ... 1 50 after he was dead, that the nation owed
(i so i him a debt of gratitude, and the few who
made the discovery, organized a com
mittee to provide suitably for his burial.
After that the committee preserved its
organization and is now appealing to the
country for funds to erect a monument
over the grave of the father of the home
stead bill, in Columbus.. It is stated
that sufficient money has been' received
to pay all expenses incurred by the fun'
eral, and that it has been decided to keep
the committee in existence until enough
money shall be raised to secure a monu
ment to the great philanthropist and
lover of his" fellow men. The appeal
says: "That Allen should have been
permitted to die in abject proverty is a
disgrace, not only to the people of this
country, but also to civilization, and
that amends should be made by the
erection of a monument, so that the re'
proach that republics are ungrateful,
may not in this instance, be shown to be
At. the Methodist conference
held at Omaha a report was submit
ted, "fairly bristling" with donouncia-
tion of the outrages practiced on the ne-
. srroes in the Sonth. It called on the
government, the states, the church and
all good citizens to rise and abolish these
outrages. The resolution declared that
the colored people were treated sha i.e-
fully on the trains, in hotels, and shot
down like dogs, and the law of the land
trampled underfoot by people who de
spised the colored race. . This sounds
remarkably like a campaign document
ami. yet so far from its lieing regarHed in
that light it was unanimously adopted
by a rising vote. ..
Notwithstanding the very general im
pression that Harrison will have a prac
tical walk-over in tJie nomination for
the presidency, -Chairman J. S. Clark
son claims that there are seven millions
of republicans who will be represented
at the Minnepolis convention who have
not yet made up their minds whom they
will vote for. Clarkson claims that
there will be more uninstrurled dele
Kates at the convention than has ever
been in the history of the republican
party and that all the Northern states
and states which cast electoral votes
which will elect" have not instructed
their delegates. It is not surprising,
therefore, that Mr. Clarkson should
conclude that more than one ballot will
be cast beiore the choice of the conven
tion is declared.

It will enter the campaign handicapped
from the start by conceded defeat. The
republicans lost their foothold in the
Northern states in 1S0O. and rmhlic sen
timent has not been drifting in their
direction since. There will be no change
in their favor between now and Novem
ber. The democrats are torn all to
pieces on the silver and finance question,
and have lost the Sonth, which was their
stronghold' This leaves the way clear
for the people's party and of its chances
the general save: "The candidate of
the people's party will carry as many
. electoral votes as any other candidate.
In fact, the fight is between the people's
.party and the democrats.
The Missouri assembly created aimid--illc
anil made a disgracefnl exhibition of
itself, upon the re-location measure for
the state university, destroyed by fire.
l?y this act it encouraged a- wretched
wrangle, presumably for revenue, as
bribery has been openly charged. The
state university was founded originally
many years ago, at Columbia, a quiet,
lovely, little, old town in Boone county,
a spot seemingly designed by nature for
- academical training. It would be hard
to find elsewhere natural surroundings,
- and atmosphere and a society more
agreeable to the studiously inclined.
Yet now it is proposed to transplant the
-great state university from this delect--able
spot, classic in association, and in
reminiscence, and in history and in fact ;
to set this vast institution of learning
down hi one of the several little yawp
ing, yellow railroad towns that blister

tonwoods. It would be hard to conceive
of a profanation more preposterous. .
Whether or not the speech of the
British premier at Hastings the other
day indicates an intention on the part of
England to play into the bands of the
dreibund and draw a cardon of, tariff
around France in order to lead that
country to an industrial sedan it is alto
gether such a deliverance as might be
expected from a statesman who fully
comprehended the real condition of af
fairs and had the courage of his convic
tions to suggest the remedy. The pro
tection policy of the great commercial
nations of the world is playing sad havoc
with the British export trade. England
alone maintains the principle of free
trade, while other nations are adopting
protection. Lord Salisbury recognizes
the menace to British commerce. He
says: "Other nations are excluding from
their markets and trying to kill our
trade." He complains most of the
United States but sees no means of de
fence against a country that furnishes
England such articles as are essential to
the good of the people and such raw ma
terial as is essential to their manufac
tures. These cannot be excluded by
tariff legislation without serious injury
to themselves, "but" he add, "there
is an enormous mass of imports,
such as wine, spirits, silk, gloves
and laces, from countries beside the
the United States which are mere lux
uries, and of which a diminished con
sumption could be risked in order to
secure access to the markets of our j
neighbors." This is a remarkable
change of front for a British premier
and not less remarkable to find him
frankly own that adherence to the free
trade policy of Great Britain "may
be noble but it is not business-like"
and he was bound to add, on pain of
"excommunication," that free traders
had gone too far. We commend these
throghts to free traders of the United
States. If free trade England cannot
maintain her commercial supremacy, in
spite of the . immense ' inter-colonial
traffic that naturally belongs to her,
could the United States expect to fare
any better by adopting her policy. At
a time when England, herself, is count
ing the cost of unprotected industries,
would it be wise, would it be politic,
nay, rather, would it not be suicidal for
the United States to abandon a policy
under which s.he has rapidly outstripped
England, as well as every other country
on the globe? .

There has been removed and replaced,
about 19,000 cubic yards of what en
