By Order of tie Committee, J. 3. ASDEKSON, Chairman The Gazette office is in receipt of some valuable public documents from Hon. G. H. Brickner, M. C. Milwaukee Sentinel: A tailor nt Cleveland threw a pair of shears at his bod and killed him. "Don't you suppose a parent knows what is the best for Lis own child?" Milwaukee Sentinel: The issue is plain the Democratic party in Wisconsin denies the right of the state to direct the secular education of the future citizen and denies the duty of the state to protect the child against the neglect and eelfiahness of the parent. Ella Wheeler Wilcox recently honored Narragansett Pier with her presence. Her appearance in the surf led a metropolitan newspaper writer to furnish the following for her "space": ' She looked a veritable Psyche, graceful, lithe and amber-tinted. Poising for a dive on the edge of a great rock, her plump white arms pointed above her head, her lissome form outlined against the dark blue eky, a more graceful poem does not exist in her whole collection than the self of Ella Wheeler Wilcox'" Thb Milwaukee Jocbnal of Tuesday give pen portraits of the leading Demo-Crate who were in attendance at the State Convention, and among the number is the following that will be of local interest: Walter S. Greene, of Fort Atkinson, is one of the best known and most thoroughly liked among the many prominent democrats who are present at the conven tion. Genial, kind-hearted, and withal a thorough business man, Mr. Greene has succeeded in making a strong and enviable position for himself in the stnte, Although still a young man, he has al ready served in many responsible posi tions, and hio present high standing smong the prominent men of both par ties 18 a guarantee of the faithfulness with which he performed the duties that devolved upon him. Senator Sawyer, speaking of the next congressional apportionment in Wisconsin to a correspondent of The Milwaukee Sentinel said: "It seems to me that if "Wisconsin holds her own that will be all she can expect. It is true we have gained enough population to warrant, nominally, a congressman at large, just as California Republicans have dotie, and as some other states will do. But it all depends on how large the house is to be. If it is increased from its present membership we should elect nnottier member. The general idea is that the house is already large enough, aud that it will not be enlarged. Under the constitution the quorum must be one half the whole number of members. Iucrease the number of members and you will add to the old trouble about having a quorum. I think the house is as largo now as it ever ought io be." THE FORE ION WHEAT MARKET. It is well to turn aside onoe-in-a-wbile from the sophistries of the freetrader and confront affairs as they really are. There are men to-day, let it be said, who are nnlike Prof. Sumner and his ilk in their political faith, but who are just as scholarly, the difference between the two classes lying solely in that one deals with theories and the other with facts. A recent article that has been furnished The Gazette by a thoughtful, practical writer, and which will furnish food for thought as well as refutation of some of the free-trade fallacies, is here given: "Free-trade attorneys, British and Ameri can, persistently seek the support of farmers by holding ont the promise of en 1 urged foreign markets for the products of the furm as the result of engrafting the Cobden policy into our National leg islation. The hollowness of such promise becomes apparent when it is remembered that not only is the quantity of farm products which foreigners will consume limited, but that the privilege of supplying this is contested by other farmers who are in position to crowd prices below the cost of production in this country. Take the case of wheat, which is the chief artieleof export from grain-raising farms. Last year the wheat shipped abroad as grain and flour amounted to about 80,-000,000 bnshelh. Of this nearly four-fifths went to Western Europe over 55,-2S9.5S4 bushels of it to Great Britain, which was less than the average sold there for the past eighteen years. Such falling off in the quan tity sold to our Untisu customers is not the result of our inability to supply their needs, but of the fact that wheat raisers from other countries were on hand as competitors ready to sell for a less price than American wheat raisers could utlord to take for their grain. While tho quautity of American wheat sold to Great Britain fell off from over ninety million bushels in 18S7, to fifty-live aud a quarter million bushels in ISS'.t, the quantity supplied by Kussia increased nearlv fourfold in the same time that is to say, from 10,354,007 bushels in 1887, to :S!t,8U0,;i72 bushels in 188J. Mot because the United States had not the wheat to sell, but because wheat could be bought cheaper from Russia thau America. Consumers were too hard pressed by poverty to give heed to theories of reciprocity in commerce. They bought their bread of those who sold cheapest, and as the Russian serf works for less money than has to be paid the Amenoan farm laborer, not only have prices been hammered down, but Russian wheat supplemented by more than sixteen million bushels from India in 188'J has been crowding the American product from the markets of Western Europe. This is the unequal contest to which free-trade attorneys urge the American farmer. In pursuit of the phantom of a foreign market in which be can sell only at a loss, they ask him to cripple the resources of that home market which now consumes nine-tenths of all farm products, and which will, if adequately protected against underpaid foreign labor, in the near future supply American consumers for all that the American farmer has to sell." In nearly all of the Milwaukee papers whose reporters have interviewed Bouck appear the nsual number of blanks which always accompany an interview with him It's monotonous to say the least, and for that reason Mr. Bouck might for once nnburden his mind without giving utter 8 nee to the oaths and grunts, with which his speech is always so profusely inter larded. The platform adopted by the Demo crats in session at the State convention at Milwaukee, Wednesday, could have been formulated in advance by anyone at all familiar with the trend of the editorials in Democratic journals. The Republican party is bitterly arraigned as being the exponent of everything that is unworthy and disgraceful and the Democratic party is represented as something very much the reverse. The Chicago Herald for its attitude toward the Bennett law in tho past has won wide spread commendation. Its houeot expression ut favor of it aud the warnings uttered to Wisconsin Democrats were evidently the outcome of the wise deliberations of some one, who, was more of 8 level headed politician thau a blind partisan, but now that Hoard is nominated and thi school law is endorsed a new man appears to be at the editorial helm of The Herald and there is a "tacking in an opposite direction that would be quite bewildering if such a turn-about was without precedence. It is not at all to be wondered at however, when one recalls the frequency with teuiuu luts el ii,u UCCU baiuita iuo iaA two months with "We don't care how we beat the Republicans this full, as long as we beat them." A victory is sometimes too dearly won, but a defeat in which everything has been staked aud lost is jsppalhag, and that is what confronts the Democratic party of this State to-day. It is a worse fate than its greatest opponent could desire for it, and would have been avoided if the better element in the party had been heeded. For it is a fact that there are many Btalwart Democrats throughout the State who have done heroic work in their efforts to stem the tide, and divert, if possible, the disaster that they saw threatened the party iu its pen espousal of a cause in which it has ot cannot heartily be enlisted. New York Tribune: The Republicans of Wisconsin evidently know when they are well served. The State convention that met in Milwaukee on Wednesday adopted a platform which, among other resolutions, contains the following; "That we recognize and emphasize the im portance of returning a legislature which shall insure the continuance in public service of Senator John C Hpooner; that the commanding position which he has already acquired in the councils of the nation is the strongest vindication of his eminent qualification for the important station to which he has been called, and ot his right to rank with the distinguished statesmen the Republican party of Wisconsin has heretofore pluced in the seuate of the United States." To every word ot which The Tribune cheerfully gives its assent. There is no miiu in public life to-day who commands in a higher degree the respect and the confidence of his con stituents tliau does Senator Spooner. As a lawmaker, as a politician iu the best Betiso of the term, as one of the Represen tatives of a great commonwealth in the senate of the United States, he has belied none of the predictions that were made in his behalf 6ix year ago when he first entered upon the field of politics. The Republicans of Wisconsin are to be congratulated upon tho wisdom of their choice and upon their good judgment. Mayor Peck, of Milwaukee, received the nomination for Governor, at the State convention, Wednesday, on the seventh ballot. His name was presented by John Johustnne, of Milwaukee. Ue detected a similarity between Abraham Lincoln and Mr. Peck, stating that the former had been known only (r) us a joker for years "till the necessities of the time brought him to the front." The difference between a necessity and an accident are ns wide as the poles and the similarity is not apparent after the joker is dismissed. General Bragg, in nominating Gahe Bouck, not only forcibly outlined Mr. Bouck's strong, rugged, honest traits of character aud ability, but left a palpable flavor of his intent to show what Mr. Peck whs not. Ex-Consul Jonas, of Racine, received the nomination for Lieutenant Governor Wednes day, and the remainder of the ticket irw nominated Thursday. For refreshing simplicity the following from the Milwaukee Journal leads: "There is something refreshing about the absence of office-holders from the city to day. One week ago there was nothing else in town." So unkind, don't you know, to remind the hungry multitude of the fact that they are uusated. riti-xs oi'imoxw. Boston Herald: The force bill is a sine Quay non. St. Joseph News: Tho St Paul Daily News asks the churches to suspend the singing of the hymn, '"I would not live alway, I ask not to stay," until after the recount is finished. Cleveland Lender: Here is what a lottery lobbyist said when he heard of the passing of the anti-lottery bill in the house of representatives last Saturday: "The newspapers did this; d n 'em!'' What better tribute could the press ask ? St. Punl Pioneer Press: Demo crats are now clustering under the Murat Halstead tree; expecting he will drop right into their hands when he is ripe enough. Mean while the breezes sigh and whisper among the fluttering leaves, and Halstead bobs and smiles and blush es like a big red apple. Winona Republican: If silver keens advancing in the markets of the world as it has been doing for the past two weeks, the buzzart dollar will soon develop into a gen- nine American easrle dollar of the fathers, worth its face in gold. And for so much, thanks to the legisla tion of a Republican Congress. Chicago Inter-Ocean: "A Spooner convention"' is the way the New York Times refers to the Repub lican convention at Milwaukee. The Republicans of Wisconsin can take no exceptions to that, as Senator Spooner represents the courage and Republicanism of the state as well as any estern man at Y ashington. St. Paul Pioneer Press: The czar, between bomb frights, has found time to confer the decoration of the Order of St. Andrew upon Chancel lor von Caprivi. The conferring of orders among royalty and its satellites is quite a fad. In fact, they appear of late to have formed quite a little m itual admiration society for this purpose. Chicago Journal: Just think of it! In New York vesterdav the tern perature fell to 51 degrees. But re cently that unfortunate city was one gigantic Turkish bath and now it is a refrigerator. J o change the smile, one day it is an island at the equator and the next an island off Green land. It's too bad. The people in New Y'ork are of our own blood aud nativity and have all sympathy.
