U WISE. At Minneapolis. The situation at Tdinrteapolis remains practically unchanged. There is nothing in the telegraphic dispatches to indicate a gain or loss for either of the leaders in the race. There seems to he a reluctance on the part of both factions to making a show of strength, and it appears more nnd more evident that unless some change is brought about neither Mr. HI.AINK nor President HARRISON will have a majority on the Hrst ballot. A great deal dcpendB upon the report of the committee, on credentials, for it is conceded that this committee can in the seating of contesting delegates turn the balance to or from either leader. The majority of the committee are BLAISE men, but it is not believed they will use the po'ver of the majority to secure any undue advantage. The. selection of Major MCKINLEY for permanent chairman will be well received by the Republicans of the conn- try, as, indeed, would be his nomination for the presidency, in cake of a failure of the delegates to harmoniously agree upon either BLAINE or HARRISON. The tendency is still in the direction of harmony, all of the delegates voicing the admirable senti raent expressed by MCKINI.KY, that the party would rally to the support of the nominee. One Term for Presidents. That alleged GRANT letter may have been bogus, and it probably was, yet it contained a sentiment which is growing in popularity every day. It is to the effect that in rare cases only, when the exigencies of the times demand it should a president be elected to a sec ond term. The i-easons assigned are that the chief executive who goes into office with the understanding that he is to retire when his term expires will work to advance the interests of the country and not manipulate the affairs and patronage of his office to secure a rc-elcetion, It is conceded that in the case of AURAHAM LINCOLN a retirement at the end of his first term would have been decidedly disastrous; but such emergencies have seldom occurred in our national history, and even if the one term theory were tacitly adopted, the good sense of the people might be depended upon to make exceptions when the circumstances warrant or demand it The growth of the one-terra senti inent has been such that if President HARRISON fails to be re-noraiuated at Minneapolis it is probable that the single term idea will become one of the ilxed tenets of the Republican party in the future. Let it become understood that a president must make his record, for good or bud, in four years, and we predict that the salutary eif ccts of the policy will soon become manifest, and the country in the future be relieved of the spectacle that now presents itself in both the lending political parties—that of the office holders and ox-oftlce holders striving to sujure the nominations of the men w'.o gave them positions, Whocy -r may be nominated for president \v*U stand upon the platform of principles promulgated by the national convention to-day. That is the part of the programme that interests the rank and file of the party particularly and the people of the United States in general. The nominee will be n man who will be amply able to fill the executive chair, and a man in whom the people can repose confidence. It matters very little to the general public whether Mr. CI.AIIUSON or Mr. NKW, or Mr. KoitAKHit or Air. DKPKW stands in closest friendship to the nominee, but it does matter whether the platform is broad enough and firm and progressive enough for the majority of the people of this nation to endorse and stand upon. It is principle that is the motive power of the party and not men. One of the most beautiful tributes ever paid to the memory of a citizen of Kansas is the eulogy delivered upon 1'HEBTON R. PI.UMH by Judge BENJAMIN F. SIMPSON, on Decoration Day, at Emporia. It recites in splendid language the grand achievements of the great Kansan from his boyhood to his grave, told only as could be told by an intimate personal friend—Judge SIMPSON having been very close to him as friend, soldier, citizen and politician. BI.AIXK Republicans are of the safe and reliable sort. No one hears one of them snying that if their leader is not nominated they will not vote the ticket. They are Republicans because they sincerely believe in the fundamental principles of the party. A newspaper reporter in Minneapolis, yesterday pushed JOHN J. INOALLB for au opinion on the outlook, and all he got was the polite information that "tliis is a mighty good time to keep silent." THE CITIZEN SOLDIER BOON TO DISPLAY HIS SKILL AT THE OMAHA ENCAMPMENT. ThU In th« Centennial Tear of American liliitl» find tbe Approaching National Competitive Drill Una Aroused a Wide- jtproiid Interest. The approaching encampment of the National Competitive Drill association, to be held in Omaha during the week beginning June 13, is but the ripe fmition of the idea embodied in the recommendation made by George Washington after the close of tlio Revolutionary war to the governors of the original thirteen states. The "Father of his Country" then suggested ' 'the adoption of a proper peace establishment, in which care should ho taken to place the militia throughout the Union on a proper and efficient footing." The United States has since passed through the "general muster day" period into the present national guard system, until now, aa will be evidenced at the encampment at Omaha, the militia of many of the states of the Union can furnish men who in case of war would not compare unfavorably with the regular army organization. Last September the secretary of war approved a set of new drill regulations The weather which we have and been having the past several days, is furnished by Uncle .IKHHY RUSK for the benefit of the corn. EX-SENATOR INQAI.I.S stands in the front row of famous Republicans at the Minneapolis convention. Keep Cool. From the Topeka Democrat We say to our Republican friends to-day^ both the Harrison men and the admirers of James G. Blaine; Boys, keep cool. Above all, do not make a ruinous wager on the nomination of any particular candidate. A glance backward over the history of national conventions of the past third of a century shows the proverbial uncertainty of the outcome of presidential nominations. The night before the nomination by' the famous Republican eonwentiori «,tjj Chicago in 1800, Horace Greeley telegraphed his paper that no power could prevent William H. Seward from being the presidential candidate. The next morning Hanks, one of Abe Lincoln's relatives, appeared in the convention, in the midst of the balloting, carrying on his shoulder two rails, which, he alleged, he and Lincoln had split. In the midst of the intense enthusiasm created by that incident, the IllinoiB rail-splitter went to the front, and on,to the presidency and to immortality. On the eve of the Republican convention in Cincinnati in 1870, Joseph Medell of the Chicago Tribune telegraphed to his paper that Mr. Blaine, whom he had persistently opposed, would be the nominee of the convention. The veteran McCullough, of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, as positively declared that Mr. Hayes was out of the race. Yet on the following morning Mr. nayes was made the nominee of the convention. In the same year, in the Democratic convention held in St. Louis, such astute political managers as John Kelley and S. S. Cox predicted that Samuel J. Tilden would be defeated in the convention, and that the nominee would be a western man, probably Thomas A. Hendricks of Indiana. Yet Mr. Tilden was nominated on the first ballot, and Hendricks was forced to take the second place on the ticket. Four years later, all remember what a surprise the nomination of Garfield by the Republicans was to.the country. The outcome of the Minneapolis convention no one yet can predict. Once more we say: Boys, keep cool. Dropping the Subject. COLONEL H. B. MT/LFORD. recommended to him for use in the army, and these will govern all the contests at Omaha. Tlio contesting organizations at the encampment will find in the prizes promised enough of honor and pecuniary reward to act as powerful incentives for the putting forth of their best endeavors. There will be $10,000 in cash prizes. Half of this amount will be assigned to the national infantry drill. But the other branches of the service will not be neglected by any means. Thero will also be prizes for the artillery, Gatling gun and zouave drills, and a sort of "consolation purse," as horsemen would put it, will be given for the "maiden" infantry. Two of the crack companies which will compete are the Belknap Rifles and the St. Louis Branch Guards. Tlio former now hold the Galveston semi centennial enp, representing the championship of the United States, and as .there will be present the best drilled organizations from every section of the country, it may confidently be expected that the honor of capturing this much coveted trophy for the ensuing year will be stubbornly contested. It is expected that there will be present at the encampment more than one hundred companies and drill squads, representing the flower of the national guard of the United St'rtes. Several novel features in military tactics and many magnificent drills are promised, and the large number of experts who will attend will make the coming out of every detail of the programme possible. There will be prize swords galore, as the sum of $1,000 has been expended in purchasing these trophies, which will be awarded to the captaina of the various organizations for exceptional proficiency in their dutios. Colonel H. B. Mnlford, inspector general of the Nebraska national guard, is the president of the Competitive Drill association. He was elected last year at the organization in Indianapolis. At the same time Colonel John E. Aitclii- BOU, of the Omaha guards, wan chosen as tho first secretary of the national association. Both are well known in militia circles, and botli are earnest and active advocates of every measure tending to elevate this important branch of the service. Washington foresaw the great possibilities of tho militia and its importance to the country at large when he de- Life. COLONEL JOHN E. AITCHISON. chired, with almost prophetic vision, that "the militia must be considered as the palladium of onr security and ou.» first effectual resort in case of hostility." The old law regarding "general muster" is still on the statute books, hut the march of improvement and the increased efficiency of volunteer military companies have caused the law to be ignored, as, while the principle at the time it was framed was in the right direction, its enforcement now would only serve to briug the service into coutompt. The latest official returns give the number of enlisted and commissioned militiamen in the United States as ubout 111,000. NOTICE.
