Scheming Against Mr. Cleveland.
The Republican leaders know that they
have no chance of electing their candidate
for President next year if Mr. Cleveland is
renominated. Their aim, therefore, is to
defeat his renomination. They doubtless
think that if they carry New York this fall
the chances for Mr. Cleveland's renomina
tion will be greatly lessened. They are.
therefore, making extraordinary efforts to
carry that State at the approaching elec
tion. They selected Cot. Fred Grant to
lead their ticket, not because they thought
him to lie especially fitted for the office for
which he is a candidate, but liecause they
believd that, aided by the great popularity
which his father enjoyed, he would get an
extraordinarily large vote.
But they do not, it seems, intend to de
pend wholly upon the Grant name for vic
tory. It is hinted that an understanding
has been arrived at between the Republican
leaders and Henry George by which the
latter is (o do all he can to further the in
terests of the Republican party.
The New York Legislature at its last
session passed a law providing for the ap
pointment of an additional election inspec
tor for each election district in New York
city to look after the interests of any party
that cast over 50,000 votes at the last
municipal election. Henry George received
considerably more than that number when
he was a candidate for Mayor last spring,
and some time ago he demanded
that the additional inspectors should be
chosen from the political party of which
be is now the chief. His demand was ac
ceded to and the inspectors were selected
and sworn in. It is a question, however,
whether the George party—or the United
Labor party as it is called—has any right
whatever to inspectors. It had no exist
ence at the time Mr. George was a candi
date for Mayor. He was nominated by the
Progressive Labor party which has since
withdrawn from his support.
It is noticeable that Mr. George intrusted
the selection of these additional inspectors
to a Republican, and there does not appear
to Is- any doubt that the great majority, if
not all, of them are Republicans. It is also
significant tliat the Republican newspapers
insist that Mr. George's party is entitled to
the additional inspectors, and that the cam
paign literature of that party is being cir
culated by the Republicans. All these
things point to an understanding between
Mr. George and the Republican leaders.
New York got* Republican al>out as often
as it goes Democratic, and while the out
look now is that it will go Democratic this
fall, there is, of course, a possibility tliat it
will not. If the Republicans should carry
it the enemies of Mr. Cleveland in his own
party will at once insist that he cannot
carry New York next year, and, therefore,
should not lie renominated That is just
what the Republican leaders want. If thev
can get Mr. Cleveland out of the way they
will enter upon the national campaign with
a feeling that they have a pretty fail- chance
Foraker Wasn’t Snubbed.
The positive declaration of the President
that Mrs. Cleveland had no intention of
snubbing Gov. Foraker and his wife at the
Philadelphia Centennial rolls the Ohio
statesman of some of his campaign material.
At the lunch given by Mrs. Hendricks, at
Indianapolis, to the President and his wife,
Mrs. Hendricks remarked to Mrs. Cleveland
that the only unkind things said of her since
her entrance into the White Hotlse were in
connection with the charge that she had
treated Gov. Foraker and his wife dis
courteously at Philadelphia. Tbe President,
who overheard Mrs. Hendricks’ remark,
said that the failure of Mrs. Cleveland to
shake hands with Gov. and Mrs. Foraker
was not intentional. It was simply one of
those things which cannot always be avoided
at crowded receptions.
It is strange that Uov. Foraber should
have permitted a false impression of the
Philadelphia affair to get abroad, and, that
too, with his approval, apparently. His
conduct on his way to Ohio, after the cele
bration was over, and even after he reached
his home, was such as to leave the impres
sion that he had been deliberately slighted.
Unless he was perfectly satislied that such
was the case, he shodld have at once denied
the truth of the story. His own self re
spect should have influenced him to sup
pose that no discourtesy to him was in
tended unless there was not room for two
opinions about the matter.
Can it lie possible that he had no idea that
he had been slighted until he saw in a Re
publican paper the story that he had been,
and that then he concluded not to deny it,
but lot it stand and use it against the Presi
dent in his political speeches? It certainly
looks a little that way, and yet it seems
hard to believe that the Governor of
a great State like Ohio would be guilty of
anything of that kind.
In view of the denial of the President it is
due from Gov. Foraker to say, at least, that
he was mistaken, and that he regrets having
done Mrs. Cleveland an injustice.
The Colored Female at Minneapolis.
A colored woman* named Hollingsworth
is a delegate from some Southern State to
the Knights of Labor convention at Minne
apolis. She appears to be one of that kind
of women who raise up their voices in pub
lic assemblies. There is nothing to be said
against her on that account, however, a-s
many good women nowadays talk as elo
quently and sensibly as men, in conventions
and from the lecture platform. There
is some reason for objecting to some
of her sentiments, however. In the
course of her remarks she said that she rep
resented the colored [xsople of the South,
and that in her opinion there was a bond of
unity between the people of Ireland and
her people. Site wanted the Irish leader,
Mr. Davitt, to visit the South and see the
condition of the colored people, which she
described as being “worse than in the
It is safe to say that the colored people do
not agree With their delogato respecting
their condition. Asa rule, they appear to
be very well satisfied with their surround
ings. They are about as contented as any
people on the fueo of the earth, and they
don’t appear to have many cares or troubles.
They have about all the necessaries of life
and they don't labor as hard and as contin
uously as many of the white people do.
As for their material and moral condition,
it is steadily improving. It is tho fault of
the colored jieoplo themselves that it doesn’t
improve faster. They have about tho same
chance for getting ahead in tho world that
those of the white people have who are no
more abundantly provided with this world’s
goods than they are. The schools are open
to them, and there is no discrimination
against them in any of the avenues in
which a living is to be earned.

they will get just as much for their cotton.

No, the colored people have no reason to
complain, and those who are thrifty and in
dustrious do not complain. Their homes

There does not seem to be any immediate
prospect of successful competition with the
Western Union Telegraph Company. When
the Baltimore and Ohio telegraph system
was established it was expected to grow un
til it became :tlmost as great as the Western
Union system. It had a big railroad sys
tem to assist it, and a company that was re
garded as one of the richest in the country.
It has, however, become the property of
tbe Western Union, and its
books show that instead of
being a paying concern it. lost money almost
from the start, and that its losses amounted
to almost as much as i 100,00) a year.
The Western Union has grown into a
monster corporation. Its capital stock is
now about #51,000.000, its debt about #7,-
000,000, and it will have to issue aliout $5,-
000,000 ifl ! of stock to pay for the Balti
more and Ohio system. It is pretty safe to
say that when it gets its affairs all
straightened out it will have to pay
dividends upon about £100,000,000. That be
ing the case the prospect of lower telegraph
rates is not very encouraging.
The Western Union has gone on absorbing
one line after another until only a few in
significant lines now remain outside of its
control. They do not do sufficient business,
however, to materially -rfere with it.
Doubtless other lines will lie es
tablished, but they can have very little
hope of competing successfully with the
immense corporation that virtually does
the telegraph business of the eutire coun
try. To get business it would have to cut
rates, and it would take a big bank account
to stand a reduction in the rates for a longer
time than the Western Union.
It may be that rates will be raised slightly
now that the Baltimore and Ohio opposition
lias been removed. It is certain that
the Western Union has not been
making Jits stockholders happy with
dividends lately. If it paid dividends
only upon the actual cost of its property, or
the amount for which the property could
now be replaced, its stock would be about
the most valuable in the country. The rates
.could be lowered, and still the dividends
would rival those of the best jiaying stock in
The people of Florida are working in the
right way. They appreciate the fact that
what is most needful to their prosperity is
the diffusion of information as to the advan
tages of the State as a place of resi
dence. A concerted movement to thoroughly
advertise the State and induce immigration
is now on foot, and there is no doubt the
public-spirited people of Florida will aid it
in every way possible. An important meet
ing of the Executive Committee of the
Florida Immigration Association was held
in Jacksonville a day or two ago, the mem
bers of which are leading citizens, repre
senting every' part of the State. Agents
will be appointe 1 to organize blanch associ
ations in the different counties, and every
effort will be put forth to make the move -
ment a popular one. The expense noed not
be very great, and if any considerable pro
iwrtion of those who will be lienefited con
tribute to the fund the tax will lie very
The aid which has been proffered by the
railroads, of which mention has already
bjen made by the Morning News, will
prove a very valuable supplement to the
work done by the State Association. Per
haps through no other agency can effective
advertising be done so cheaply as through
the Northern railroads, and as half the
money spent to induce travel to Florida will
be contributed by them, they will be cer
tain to see that it is judiciously expended.
There is no reason why Florida should
not profit by the methods which have made
the Western States rich. Their lands are
now held at high prices, they are thickly
populated, and they are studded with
large cities and prosperous towns. One of
the principal factors in their rapid growth
has been the skill and persistency with
which they have advertised their resources.
Ttie same methods will produce a like effect
in’Florida, for her attractions, if dissimilar,
are yet equally as great as those of tbe
One effect of the hot tight made by the
Independents on the regular Democrats in
Maryland has been to drive together in de
fense of the party men who had loug been
enemies. The Independents and their
Republican allies are not going to have a
walk-over by any means. In Baltimore
Gen. Latrobe, who has ulready served two
or more terms in that office, has been nomi
nated by the regular Democrats for Mayor,
and expresses himself as certain of election.
He ought to be, if the Independents fail to
meet his challenge to point out any depart
ment of the State or municipal government
which lias not been honestly administered.
Investigation is making it plain that a
determined effort was made by the railroads
to bribe numerous members of the New
Hampshire legislature. Not one seems to
to have resented the offer of money for his
vote, and several confessed that they hat
consented to be bought, but afterward re
lented. The average price seems to have been
about SI,OOO, which is somewhat more than
colored legislators sold for during the car
pet-bag regime in tho South. This is fur
ther evidence that the New England Yan
kee holds hituself higher than tho negro, in
spite of his protestation to the contrary.
Henry George is expending part of his
energy in nttacking the system prevalent in
New York of assessing candidates for
valuable offices thousands of dollars. As
long as ho is on this line he must have the
sympathy of all except tho politicians. As
long as candidates can be made to pay
large sums to reward the small politicians
for their support there will be little chanco
to reduce the compensation paid certain
officials to something like the worth of
theif services. The present system is a
fertile source of corruption, especially in
New York municipal polities.

The hostility manifested toward Senator Col

as Democrats in their respective States may be
accepted as a safe sign tnat they will lie re
elected. Every Representative in Congress
from Georgia ami Alabama occupies precisely
the same ground on the tariff as do Senators
Colquitt and Morgan, and this fact indicates the
sentiments of the overwhelming majority of the
Democratic masses of those two States.

HETTY GREEN IN CHICAGO.
Lending Money and Baying and Sell
ing Real Estate.
From Vie Chicago Herald.
Hetty Green, worth twice as much, probably,
as Phil Armour, weighs just about the same and
gets down to her Dearborn street office at just
about the same hour that the packer reaches
his La Salle street headquarters. All these
statements are at variance with popular notion.
Very few people, indeed, probably nave had any
idea that Hetty Green uad a Chicago office.
Then, too. every popular picture of the woman
worth $38.00:>.000 has been of a thin, angular,
vinegary female wim.se clothes dragged on tlx*
ground. She is. in fact, a big, plump woman,
who must turn the scale at W pounds, and her
togs are first-class. The Howland block is hers,
and her private office is on the second floor, in
the rooms of her Chicago agents. She has been
here some weeks, and her sou, an amiable, un
assuming sort of young fellow, is here perma
nently, over at 44 Ann street.
A broker who had a loan to make met Hetty
Green on the street at 9 o’clock one morning
this week and presented the opportunity to her.
“That was offered to me at 7 o'clock this morn
ing,” she said sharply, “and I refused it.” The
broker had had an idea that women with more
money tliau they knew how to invest laid abed
until about 10. Mrs. Green doesn't spend any
of her money at the hotel. She takes lodging
with her agent down on the south side, comes
down town on an early car, and during the day
walking is good enough for her. The boy
doesn't weigh much more than half as much as
his mother, but has some of the maternal in
stincts. To go to the expense of printing a
business card would be an übomination. Bo he
has a little rubber stomp, and when a card is at
all necessary he £ears off a little piece of paper
from a novspaper in one instance that the
writer knows of—and stamps thereon: ‘*E. H.
H. Green, Real Estate, 42 Ann street.”
Hetty Green owns the Howland block. Rhe
loaned Honor© $250,000 on it when he was flying
high, and when he couldn’t pay the interest
Hetty took the property. A broker says he'd
like to have it to sell now at $750,009. She had
a $250,000 mortgage on the Major block at the
same time, and was very much disgruntled be
cause the owner was enabled to get around and
redeem. She has big blocks of improved prop
erty all over the city. Her big investment here,
however, is in loans. They are believed to ag
gregate about $3,000,000.
A Persuasive Kentucky Girl.
Fromthr Louisville. Courier-Journal.
Society has something to talk about. It is
the origmal manner in which a young lady over
ruled a decision of her father's. The daughter
of a well-known professional gentleman wished
to make a visit to some friends in New Orleans.
The father withheld his consent. The yonng
lady was very indignant. Her father enter
tained some gentlemeu friends at his home and
gave a handsome supper. In the midst of the
meal they heard a tremendous noise in the room
above them. It sounded as if someone were
overturning all tlio furniture. The host rose
hastily aim went up to see what was the matier.
His daughter was lying squarely on her back in
the middle of the floor. i>ounding It with her
heels aud small pietvs of furniture she held in
her hands. He asked her what, was the matter,
and she replied that she wished to go to New
Orleans. Ho told her to stop her uoise. that
she could not go. Ho went back down to his
guests, and in ten minutes the noise was re
sumed worse than ever. Ho went up to his
daughter's room and again found her beating
the floor. “You can go to New Orleans,” he
exclaimed, angrily, “and you can start to
night.” Thus the young lady carried her point.
