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. Cougregatioiialist. 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 ow ner of the bullion re ceives only the market price for it, as be did under the liland-Allison law, the difference Is'twecn the mar ket price and the coinage value going to the government a a sort of profit in the transaction, but the coinage would not U as great as it was under that act, for the monthly minimum coinage unihT the lilund-Allison law wit loiio,ooii worth of bullion, which would yield coins, at the pres ent price of bullion, to the face value of more than :t,nni),otHi, while only 100,001 1 is provided for by the Squire proposition. Then, too, the latter contemplates a cessation of coinage after a little over four years have pushed, or w hen 1UU,(NNI,(HI0 of the coins have been issued. Of course, this stipulation would amount to but iitlli', for the extremists would begin clamoring for Ins: coinage I h1 fore the ink would be dry on the president's signature if this prool tion should pass congress and secure executive approval. The chief objection w hich sound money men will offer to the Sjuire proposition is that this and all other s'heines for ctustruitive legis lation should Is a iudeMndeut meas ures, and s'tould receive more dis cussions ami deliberations than can be iill'orded them in the present exi gency.

We must get the Slier mull law out of the road first, and then we w ill be in a position to take a calm and careful survey of th" field and si.' what sort of legislation is demanded by the conditions which then prevail. The Squire proposi tion will "keep." The senate has not the time at its di-qxisat now to give it the attention w hich It may deserve. Itepcal and adjournment are what are desired from congress now. In the regular session nect winter or spring congress will have more leisure to devote to the con sideration of the finance question iu its broad phases than it has at this moment. I pliill Work fur hole. 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.
