DIMOCUITK I'AKIV DEt'lOEM.
It has U-en fr .ijuently said by the
reiiublicuns of late years that the
deinoirats are not Ht to direct the
legislation of the country. The
charge is absurdly untrue when it i
applied to the ili'iiioiTiits as they
were, hut it is by no means so clear
ly wrong when it Is directed to the
democrats as they are. The demo
crats are on trial on this point at
present. It Is a repttweh to them
already that they have not established
a character worthy of their history
which we havo noted above in this
respect. The ptsiple, after with
holding confidence from them for a
quarter of a ccntuary, have Iss'ii
disposed to geturu it in a liberal
measure. The victories that the
democratic party has won In the
years k'.io and 1 '.-' have btsn
worthy of those accorded it in its
palmiest days of popular favor. The
latter victory has given it complete
control in the nut ion against obstacles
that seemed almost insurmountable.
Never did a party hav a grander
opportunity tillered it. Are the
democrats to whom Is given the
charge of the party interests n bout
to fritter i away, and In so doing to
confess that the power to preserve
party unity nnd to administer sut
cessfuily the government is a lost art
with them '.'
The strength of the democratic
party in other days was largely In
the fact that it had a policy and held
to it nnd enforced it among its
followers. A party that can not do
this Is not a party that succeeds In
governing the country. The republi
cans taunt that the democratic party
is not competent to govern the coun
ty Is, therefore, J untitled as fur as
present action on the currency
question Is concerned. We may Ik1
told that the repuhlicim party was no
better represented here that that
party was forced to compromise in
its treatment of the currency. This
is true, but this very compromis
ing on the part of the republican
party showed that compromise was a
failure. The democrats themselves
had said it would lx, and the result
had proven that they were right.
The time then runic for the demo
crats to act atllrmatively. They ac
ceptisl the situation bravely at the
outset. The president called congress
together and laid down a plan of
action, which was accepted as wise
by three-fourths of the country at
least. The house of representatives,
representing the popular voice of the
nation, responding to it by nu im
mense majority. What is the next
symptom? It is that of the demo
cratic party, with all this magnificent
hacking, powerless for any efllclent
effort in the other branch of the
government, and at tho mercy of
a fracticus minority which refuses to
pass any legislation. The democratic
party, helpless before this minority,
deserts and lictruys the president and
a majority of its own party in the
house of representatives.
The democratic party today stands
powerless before this state of affairs.
While it docs so stand can the claim
be made that this party Is demonstrat
ing Its capacity to govern? On the
contrary, is it not pusillauimously
yielding the right to make such a
Ij'tniitiV Tlif mirfY flint fl,Hliiri II
...w t - ...
inn not enforce a measure which has
behind it a minority of at least
thirteen, and probably more, in
the United States senate, is but
the shadow of the democracy
that the country used to know
in energy and determination. If it
gives way to it minority witli such a
presiuderance at its h:u'k, it will be
the Hr-t party in the history of tho
government with the like strength
which ever made such an Ignomin
ious surrender. What answer will
it le able to make thereafter when
the republicans shall taunt it with
its incapacity to govern the country?
We muff that we are at a loss to
imagine, unless it makes a frank
confession of its tlcploraahle failure.
H stoii Herald, (democrat).
A I.esMin In SclMiOTrrnnirnt.
The point of most insterest anil
significance in the remarkable frc
tacle of the oening of the Cherokee
strip Is the spirit of general ressrt
for legal forms and agencies. In no
other coutry, it is afe to say, could
such a scene have licen enacted with
no little violence and disorder. The
military force detailed to preserve
the peace and maintain the civil au
thority was a comparatively small
one, and could not have stood for a
moment against an attack that might
have Is'cn made uu it nt any one
of the (siints of entrance. There was
an exciting conis tition among the
home-seeker for desireable claims,
but it was r-.irrii-d on for the mot
part in a law-abiding manner, And
with a reasonable respect for in
dividual rights. In the nature of
things, disputes and altercations
could not bo entirely avoided,
hut instances of this sort were strik
ingly few, considering the circum
stances. The prevailing temper was
good-humori'd and free from all sug
gestions of "wild and woolly" meth
ods and tendencies. Men were there
w ith their families, unimabsl by the
bt of motive, and respiting tine
another as future neighbor aud
fellow-citizens. If they did not all
get what they wanted, they wen
content to take w hat w as obtainable
and in. ike the most of it, isking
forward hopefully to the improve
ment of their fortunes in the develop
ment of a new country.
There was no time lost, it will be
noted, iu providing for the political
necesNities of the case. The cluiuis
were no sooner staked out than local
governments were organized, and
steps taken to establish the rule of
law where twenty-four hours U'fore
there had teen onlv a solitude of
primeval prairie. Within a few
weeks the whole machinery of soci
ety will be in practical operation, the
same as it Is In the states from
whence the settlers came. American
citizen carry with them wherever
they go the intelligence and experi
ence that make self-government suc
cessful. They are all more or less
quulilled for imlitical service, anil (he
building of a commonwealth is a
task at which they never fail. This
genius for establishing republican in
stitutions came in with the first pio
neers of New England and has Is-on
handed down through succeeding
generations. Tills is the great secret
of our expansion and progress. The
inherited regard for law as the source
of safety 'and prosperity is the pre
dominant trait of the national char
acter. It has Iss'n found adequate in
every emergency and under all con
ditions, Corelgu students of our
history dwell upon it as the fact of
supreme interest ami potency. It
bcnrtlcciit influence call Is tracts!
throughout the whole wonderful
story of the settlement of the conti
nent, step by step and state after stale.
This latest illustration is only a repi
titiou of many other, all teaching
the same lesson of superior capacity
for the highest work of civilization;
and therein lies the be-t assurance of
the perpetuity of the government
and the increasing welfare and hap
piness of the n"ople.-( ! lobe-Democrat.
Hard things are often said about
rejiorler. The competition between
newspapers is so great that the re
Mrter who seeks promotion must
employ every expedient in his
power to get news, and sometimes he
seems impertinent. A prominent
businessman was disturliecl late at
night recently by a young man who
wanted more accurate information
than he had been able to get about an
important religious meeting. The
gentleman courteously granted the
interview, and next day, noticing
that the meeting was reported un
usually well, wrote a brief note of
appreciation to the editor. Soon
after the reporter met him in the
presence of several others and, with
deep feeling, said the editor had
given him the note and that he
prized it among his most precious
treasures. Seizing the oportunity
our friend asked the young man,
"Are you a christian?" After u
moment's hesitation the young man
frankly replied that ho was, nnd
three other reporters; present ans
wered the same question in the
affirmative, "(live me your hand
for Jesus Christ," said our friend,
and with a hearty clasp from each
one and word of cordial sympathy
they parted. At least one busy man
is glad that he allowed himself to
le called out iu the night on what
seemed an unwarranted summons,
and he thinks that if christian work
ers would uniformly show kindness
to rcorters the tone of the sirulur
press, ess-ciully in its reports of re
ligious Hus tings, might lie more iu
sympathy w ith the christian religion.
DusinciNS is dull this autumn, but
talk is lively. We hardly rememls r
a season when it was so abundant. It
is not surprising that much ol it is
the rcult of fevered working within
and unusual public excitement. The
senate sets a humilating example ol
darkening counsel by words w ithout
knowledge. When the chief legisla
tive Issly in the land sets itself
before the public avowedly to talk
for weeks against time it is to Ik
exected that other IkkIics, Isith
tsilitii'al and religious, should !e In
ftsHed with the fonli-hness. The

After reciting the proviiioiis of the
Squire amendment to the repeal bill,
the St. I.oui i.obe-Democrat re
"It will be noticed that this scheme

than are found iu any other
compromise yd brought before eon

Squire proposition. Then, too, the
latter contemplates a cessation of

Governor Hoics is greatly discour
aged over the nine weeks' extra
session of congress having failed to
aivomplish anything for tin; "reform"
or "relief" of the prevailing demo
cratic panic and hard times and the
ct rtninty of the defeat of his parly
iu Iowa. He dure not discus na
tional issues, although hit is a candi
date for United State Senator. His
Waukon ap'al to the "reports of
the great commercial agencies" was
tlisastrous in the extreme, and he is
daily liarrassi by the fact that the
Democratic State Central Committee
is doing nothing in the campaign
except to aid the "Citizen's Prohibi
tion State Committee" und Bennett
Mitchcl's candidacy. His sjkssIi
at Muscatine last Friday night was a
failure. It was confined to statis
tics pertaining to the state institu
tions, on w hich there Is no difference
of opinion between the parties. He
was suffering from cold, but the
principals of bis nervous prostration
resulted from the knowledge of the
fact that the "reports of the great
agencies" were being made out for
the pa-t week, w hile he was attempt
ing to make his Muscat ime speech.
