of Republicans have decorated the laile of their coat will a button bearing a miniature impression of the United Stale flag and a country scluwl-lionse while the Republican stole comtnille has formally adopted as its emblem a picture of a one-story school house with a United State flag dying from the cupola the words “District School” losing over the front door and on on side of the slanting roof the inscription “The little school house" Beneath thi are the words “Stand bv it" The most striking spectacular feature of Hie campaign however lias yet to come 1 Hiring the next few weeks three little girls ill red white and Mue respectively will mount the rostrums in most of the counties of Wisconsin and render a song of eixteen verses with the refrain “Stuml by the school-house" Hundreds of thousand of copic of the same song are now leing ili-triliutcd and it will 1 sung in stentorian tone at every Republican rally On the other band the iH-inocrals whose caiuli date for governor ia I’eck of “Rail Roy" faiej are getting op marching “bail boy" each club having a contingent of “bail boys” for whose benefit a story with the title “Wiien my pa i governor” has been composed Tho volume of sketches entitled "Deck's Had Boy" is also being industri ously circulated as campaign literature a LET US HAVE REFORM Mr Henry Calwt Lodge one of Hie congressmen from Massachuetta contribute a paper to the Octoler Ctntury on the question “Why patronage in office is un American " In it we find the following:— ' When the government of the United State was formed the wise men who framed the constitution saw and rooted out one of the evili of patronage although not perhaps the wont Tliey perceived vero clearly that parliament was controlled and corrupted in large measure hy the bestowal of appointive ollice upon il memliere and in order to preserve the legislation of the I’nited States from this danger they put a clause in the cuiiiliiution which made it impossible for the executive to corrupt Congrcsi by she appointment oi its rnendicrs to office This makes it clear that the fraincrs oi the con-MacdonaM ti-iltioiisaur nolnin sacredly American in olhcial piLrunngi tin the contrary they dcU-c'cil in it in one direction a great Miril and in that direction they cut it up by the roots We commend tiie aUve to one of our Hamilton contemporaries uhicli recently took Tiik Kiiitok to task for objecting to the appointment of incmUrs nf the lfouso of ('ominous uiul of our pro vincial ltgislatuivs to public office If the founders of the Am-eri --in republic fniind it ilesirable in order to preserve tle imleiiendence of cou-gn-sst-) pr-ivi-lc in the constitution that no C'liigrcisiiian should lie appointed to pu-tlic office there!

How many judges and city postmasters and collectors of customs have been drawn from the same ranks? And in Ontario politics is it not true that nearly all the rich plums in registrar ships shrievalties etc fall into the waiting mouths of the supporters of the government of the day? lu 0uclee was not this abuse of power largely used to secure tiie du nfall of the Joly ministry? And has not Mr Mereier used it to overcome a hostile majority in the provincial senate! Wc lwlieve public sentiment to-day does ut regard with favor the filling of to many fat offices with tnctnWrs of parliament There is a revolt against tho greed -shall we say lioggislnet ?— that is Iwlng shown in this matter and it is time to demand reform It would have been well bad our conslitntion made such a pointinents impossible but as it has not done so other means should lie employed of accomplishing the desired end - — MR HARDY AND THE CROWN LANDS The Conservative ncwsapcre are devot ing considerable attention al present to Hon A S Hardy and the crown land department of the Ontario government The success of the recent sale of timber lands is a hard nut to crack The Kinpire dare not accept The Kxi-osi Ton’s challenge to enter into a comparison of Mr Hardy price with those obtained by Sir John Macdonald hut it evades the issue in the following style:— We are supposed hy Tiie Bkavtkoki KxrosiTou to have originated au “absurd charge ” against Mr Hardy of “wasting the resources of the province ” in connection with the recent eale of tiinlier lands If our contemporary will read our remarks with a little more care it will find iHat i charge which H call absurd were made by The Toronto dulie which pointed nut that this public property of the people of Ontario would have sold for more money but for the sale being forced on when “the season for timber is dull " and part nf the limit not being tiioronghly explored The reasons for conducting the sale at the present time have already lieen explained at length and need not be again alludtd to Suffice it ia to say that was to meet the exigencies of the lumlicr trade The price obtained too was eome 8300 per square mile in excess of the highest bonus ever got before If in a dull season and part of the limit not yet explored there is cause for faultfinding that Mr Hardy only got 8933 per square mile what must lie said of Sir John Macdonald action in selling no leu than 5333 square miles of timber in the disputed territory and that privately for a bonus of 83 per square mile ? Sure enough there has been wuting ef the resources of the previaoe but not by M r Hardy Then The Hamilton SKctator attempt to deprive Mr Hardy of the fairly-turned credit given him liy The London Advertiser becanse of his able management of the crown lands department by raking up the Dulmage defalcation It uys: It is very certain that the department has been managed in a happy-good-iveky way or a collector ot moneys would not have 1 e-n permitted to go on fur year making returns wheu he pleased and as he pleased and putting money into hi own wicket u he pleased without anyliody be-nsr the wiser? The Kectotor is very dishonest in this matter Mr Haply did uot assume his present office until the montli of January 1889 and eight days after his assumption of ntfioe Duhnage was saperceiled not be cause ie was a defaulter as that fact was not then known but for ether reasons Shortly afterwords lie skipped the country The defalcation was only about $18000 and arose largely from the unsettled condition of affairs in the disputed territories aud the illneu of Mr Hardy's predecessor in the crown lands deportment the lamented Ranloe That The Spectator ia compelled to fall back upon such a vary weak scandal and one that arose prior to Mr llanly taking charge of his preaxut department shows how wholesome is the present administration of the tffairs zonnected with Ontario's crown lands The cable I wing the intelligence from Cairo tluxt the murderer of CoL Stewart has been caught anil executed The story of the murder is told briefly in Stanley's “In Darkest Africa” in the following language :— “Ou the 18th of September 1884 the steamer Abbes witn Col Stewart Honlon'a companion Mr l’nwer Tho Times' correspondent and Mr Herlnn French consul on Imard and numlmr of 11 reeks and Kgypliani were wrecked in the cataract of Aim Hamed The Aral on the shore told them to land in peace but unarmed Stewart complied anil with Consul Dower and Herbin and llassin Kflindi went ashore and entered a house in which they were murdered" This is another case in which the whirligig of Time has brought retribution EDITORIAL BREVITIES Hamilton's fair this year was a very i-oor show so much so that the local pres -a at i coinfiellid to admit the corn ilamdum should slick to it carnival and leave the fair business to Hogtown The t'anadian high conimissinnur lias given Mr Wiman credit for initiating the negotiations which led to the Bayard-Ciam-Iwrlain treaty Sir t'harlcs referred to Mr Wiman as "a mutual friend" and Sir John ha praised him as "a clever Canadian1' Vet the Tory organs are perpetually alius- ing Mr Wiman us the enemy of Canada !tllclx in asking that ample having Are not the Tory leaden more worthy of oll w tInmion lhouM twla t tllvr laeliof than the newspapers winch they subsidise? There is a vacancy in the Comm'iia fur South Victoria caused by tlc di-alb of the late Conservative member Mr Adam Hudspeth and it is expected the ch -tiuu will Ik- brought on at sn early date The Liberals have placed a strong candidate in tiie field and have nailed the luuncr of unrestricted reciprocity to the nuuit The contest will 1k an extremely interesting one as it will lie the first after tiie putting in force of the McKiulcy tariff1 and parties are very evenly divided in the constituency Dr licssey a Toronto “speciali-t in character" has lieen "sizing-up” the murderer Birchall for the benefit of the uninitiated He comes to the conclusion that the prisoner ha no moral coinpunu' tons aud he murdered because lie could not help it he was “born that way” There fore the specialist would give hint penal servitude for life and spare hi neck This is sentimental rubbish A noose in sight is as good an antidote to hereditary inst incts of a character dangerc us t ) society of al large as anything wc knew A cigur-cuse played an important art i-i bringing Hirchall's crime home to h’m and now u Kansas murderer lias Imo-ii caught after a long chase because a letter addressed to bin by ail accomplice Ih1 not been tuflieicutly prepaid aiul was sent to the (lead-letter office at Washington w'u-re il was opened and handed over to tlc autborilus Tln-n in New Jersey only this week a negro lnuidtrcr bos had his crime brought burnt to him by a piece of cloth found on the scene of the crime being found to correspond exactly with a tent in bis bhio flannel shirt “Murder will out” aud trifles light as air will often do the work The Ottawa Free Dress hits off the hollowness of agricultural iroiection or else tho contemptuous manner in which the Conservatives are treating the agriculturist in the following happy manner: According to tlieir own confession the Tories are the enemies of the Canadian farmer They insist that unless duties are imposed upon agricultural product our market wul be flooded with American grain and meats and our fanners hopelessly ruined But they assert that they are ready for reciprocity wliich means the alHilition of the dutiee on agricultural product the moment the American are willing to grant it In other word our Tory rulers if we are to lielieve their own assertions are ready to expose the fanner to unrestrained competition and ruin him whenever the congress of the United States will permit them to do so “We think Canada wounTijv wnK(it hy a political union with the noighlmring republic We lielieve sueli a union would inevitably tend to the rapid increase of our population the influx of unlimited capital the development on a large scale of our inexaustible resources aud to the general prosperity" Tiie above language is not that of Si Richard Cartwright or Attorney-Oenera Longley or Mr John Charlton or any other advocate on the Reform aide of unrestricted reciprocity with the United States hut that of The Irish Canadian m newspaper usually regarded as being sound in the Conservative faith The Exhmto does not aay that every Tory is an out-and-out annexationist but it ventures to call attenti on to the fact that all or nearly all the out-anil-out annexation iito are Tories Sir John Macdonald in his Halifax speech said the Tories would take good care to s)iend the money and that nothing would be left fur the Hrit This was no doubt told in a jocular way hut many a ijjg i'tokod as truth is told in jest Here are the proofs: KXl'KNIlITVRK Mackenzie 18T 'S'ilP’iS John A TAXATION BV Cf STOWS AXII KXCIM Ill'TIKA Mackenzie 175 ISr John A 1889 - UIKSM llERT Mnekciizlc I87P Jolm A 1889 9ST7tMX3r And as the demands of the Fzotica lie- come more exorbitant the revenue will he' swelled by increased taxation and thn career of extravagance will be maintained in order to keep the “ necessities ” of the puldic service at high-water mark The Toronto- Empire find fault with Urn recent sale of timber lands in Toronto under the aupices of Him A S Hardy os crown Unde commissioner for Ontario It even goes so far as to make au accusation of w asting the resources of the province A more absurd charge could not lie made Before confederation Conservative governments sold 11000 square miles of our provincial timber Unds at 830 per square mile Quebec hoe sold 3270 square miles at 871 per square mile The recent ( tntario sale realized on an average upwards of $900 per square mile This U because the eale was conducted openly Will The Empire please state how much Sir John Macdonald received forth Unds sold by him without competition iu the disputed territory?
