AKnoit day in this slate is approack- iug. In this part of (ho itato Ihero is no crying need of planting trees, of our towns as woll as our already hnvo loo many trues, much shade is worso than too sun. Most farms Too in mil THAT wiuked anti-Clovoland deino- cr.itio paper, the New York Suu. in allaHing to Cleveland says: "A man is aot nil wool because ho is sevoral yards wide." Dana will have to bo reconstructed before November or there will be trouble. "WHILE ono democrat, Miller, of WUeonsin, voted against the free wool bill, not a single republican voted for it." -Dubuque Telegraph. This in encouraging, for it shows that thoro is one democrat in congress who is willing to vote for the iulorests of America as against Knrope. Of course no republican would be expootcd to vote with Englaud. IK speaking of a huge elephant just landed on these shores which far exceeds in size the famous Jumbo, the Dubuque Telegraph, which is radically democratic in polities, says, "But ho is not near so big'ao elephant as the democratic party will havo on its hands if it shall nominate Cleveland." And this after it *i« practically sottlcd that Cleveland will bo tho nominee. The Telegraph and many other democratic papers will hnvo some ground and lofty tumbling to do after the Chicago convention. THE Dubuque Telegraph insists that tho tariff is a tax no mattur if tho goods are sold here for less than the amount of the tariff imposed, as in the case of calico and steel mils, for if it wasn't a tax there would bo no protection in it, and consequently it would bo useless. Would it be usolesa? Now our manufacturers havo the whole field of the United States for a market. With no tariff they would havo no markot at all only what England neglected to supply, and heneo, whilo the price might remain practically tho same, throe fourths of our factories would have to close dowa. c.liusetts, where there has been nothing like a full vote sine* he was beaten by 3i,0WP In these and other New England stales no great addition to the stif- frago hue roinforcud the democrat*. Connecticut can be claimed as doubtful, but tho chnuces are against the democrats in nny case, and with any candidate, while'other New England status can ho elnsscd as republican. Mr. Hill's disgiuecfnl behavior and the recent town elections .have made Now York more hopeful for the republicans than it was four years ago, when the last full vote gave Mr. Harrison 1-1,873 plurality. Kven New Jersey Is in such a state of mind about recent partisan swindle? and the coal monopoly :hat it might be won. Nor in view of republican victories and gains in Evansville, Columbus, Bprlnglleld, III., and many other western cities, can Indiana be counted l««.R hopeful for tho republicans than it was four years ago, while in Ohio, Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin frco silver will hurt more than it will help tho democrats, and froo wool will not help them. Iowa is the only western stale this side of the Pacific coast whieli has given a fuller vo'e sinee 1888 or 1889 than before. Thoro prohibition turned tho state election of 1891 against the republicans by 7,810 plurality for ono candidate, and it may therefore bo reckoned doubtful with more apparent reason than Indiana. But in Kausas, Nebraska and Minnesota even the alliance crass at its worst did not bring out a full vote, or prevent republican success. Montana is close, but in all tho I'aeilic states republicans havo gained In strength since 1888. If Connecticut, Nuw York, New Jer- sej, Indiana, Iowa and Montana bo all classed as questionable, with thoir 83 electoral Totes, it follows that the democrats might elect if they eonld carry all these and prevent, a loss of more than 18 votes at the south. Hut the chance that all these northern states can be carried by Ihe democrats seoms decidedly smaller than tho chanco that the alliance will cost them more than 18 southern voles. West Virginia and Virginia alone have that number, and a third ticket would almost certainly draw from the democrats several times the one vote in one hundred in Virginia, or the one vote in twenty in West Virginia, which would turn the scale against that party. Indtcd, there appears more probability of North Car olina giving a republican plurality by aid of tho alliance than of Iowa giving a dotuocratic plurality by aid of th same third party. These threo southern states, with 29 electoral votes, would sullico to defeat tho democrats even if ihey eonld get the 83 electoral votes mentioned from the north. lint there is one other thing to be observed. The sarao democratic party is not going to be able this year lo carry New York and Connecticut, with s candidate against free silver, and Indiana, Iowa and Montana with a candidate for freo silver. One road or tho other must bo chosen; both cannot be. If Mr. Cleveland could carry Connect! cut and New York he could not carry i western state. If a eandiilato could be found win would delight the moro- monny fanatic* enough to carry Iowa and Montana, that candidate would broak his nook in Now York and Con nocticut. Hiding either of the two hor see is permissible. This year no man can ride them both to his own comfort THE REASON BLAINlE DECLINES. In an interview last week, Mr. Blaino aald, Among other things: "Tho prosidoncy is an oflico without sleep. I do not believe that if I were elected 1 could serve out my term. If I were assured, therefore, of a nomination and election to the presidency, I could not accept it. It would be constructive suicide." This dieoloios the fact long suspected 4>y his friends, nnd should prevout any being brought upon him tn accept a nomination, and ihero now seems no probability that his name will ha mentioned at Minneapolis. It is becoming more and raoro apparent everyday that Harrison will bo renom­ inated by acclamation, which would be the proper thing lo cto. "THE democratic party seoms to contemplate tho commission of suicide. The indications poiut to the nomination ot Cleveland."—Dubuquo Telegraph. This is the unvarnished fact but wo scarcely expected the radically democratic TolegrapU to admit it thus early iu the campaign. There has no man yet been named who would not stand a hetter chance of boing eleoted president tliau Glover Cleveland, not excepting our own Boles, and he is at the bottom of the list. Clovolantl onnnot possibly enrrv New York, and in view of the spring elections it is absoluto folly to expect to elect a democrat without New York. The Telegraph is right, and -as thoro. is now not ouo clmnoe in a hundred that Clevoland will not be nominated our friends ou tha other sido might just as well be getting ready for tho funeral. There was a bar* chance for Cleveland to bo elected four years ago. There Is absolutely no oliauoo now. 'SUNDAY NIGHT.' THE SITUATION. (N. Y. Tribune] From the oast comes light.

The subject of tha discourse nt tho Congregational church a week ago this evening was tho evidences in nature of the existence of God, nnd tho minister wovo out of the subject a very interesting and ablo sermon, nnd with al quite convincing. But wo romom bor that it is only tho fool that says iu his heart there is no Cod. Even Bob. Ingcrsoll, while he is not quite sure of it, does not opetly deny the oxistenco of a supreme being. Iu looking ovo tho vast oxpanso of tho universe th world to-day is a practical unit in tho belief that "the hand lhat formed it was divine." This is not the point of doubt and agnosticism with the great bulk of what aro termed unbelievers Tho difficulty is along the line of th* inspiration of the bible and the reason ablenoss of the schema of salvation which, no matter how moral and upright a man may bo, consigns him to cturnal woe unless ho aecepts a certain faith that may not scorn reasonable to him and houce caunot be accepted by him. In this voaim of thought it is not th infidels and agnostics alone that are troublod, but some of tho most ominont orthodox divines.. A little whilo ago we referred to a sermon by Rev. S. W Sample, of Minneapolis, favoring the opening of the world's fair on Kunday Immediately it was stated that he was not an orthodox miulster and lienco his position had no religious weight. W afterwards learned that ho was pastor of a prominent Unlvcrsalist ohttroh. Wo supposed at tho time that he was pas tor of a Peoples' churoh, somewhat similar to tho ones presided over by Kev. S. G. Smith, of St. Paul, and Dr. Thomas, of Chicago, both of whom war* formerly eminent Methodist ministers, but now so far liberalised as to bo out ef to'.ioh with.that denomination But her* wo havo anothor Mluneapo lis minister, this time an orthodox mln Is tor and in fellowship with the Methodist church, who has raised a sensation by a heretical paper read before the Ministerial Union a few days ago, and reportod in th* Tribune. As this i.i i lino with tho vlows wo want to express and is from undoubted orthodox author ity, w* give the report roforred to only saying, parenthetically, lhat if the orthodox ministers can explain away tho logic tlierolu contained they will hare uo trouble with unbeliovori in their parishes: "Unless Rev. Dr. F. O. Holraau, of tho Hennepin Avenue Methodist Church, watches' his ps and qs be may be given a cluivoh trial for heresy. Before the Ministerial Union yesterday morning ho road an elaborate paper on 'The Popular Revolt Against th* Tia- dlttonal Dootrine of Rotribulion,' and it created a decided sunsatlon. Al though Mr, Ilo".man said bo did not advocate the views expressed in his paper • he had simply incorporated i 11 things as he found them—nearly all ot those present seemed inclined to think that lie was preach lug a very dan gerous doolrln*. Thoy took issue with the paper on nearly every point and intimated that the dootor had taken dismal view ot the situation. In his reply Dr. Holraau, did not swerve at-all Iroat his original position, Attar a short talk "» 'Qymansiunt Work,' by Dr. Elsora, the instructor at the new Yi M. O. A, gymnasium, Dr Holman presented lit* paptr. He started put with the bal<( dsolaratloii that there I* a wida'spread and grow. io pop- siiblle- ing popular revolt against the tradi- 1 lional doctrine of retribution; which is finding expression in newspaper editorials, magazine articles and popular novels, it is also Indicated by the restlessness of many of tho most thoughtful and devout of the clergy, and by the silent but nono tho less emphatic dissent of a growiug portion of faithful evangelical christian.". The popular revolt ugainsl Calvanistic doctrines of 'ecliou and infant damnation is the most conspicuous. Continuing, Mr. Holman snid: 'Now let us wiili exactness deliuo th* tradition il doctiine: Whoever in hristian lands, after arriving at years f discretion, dins without, having" surrendered to th* will and believed in the sacrifice of the historic Christ shall avc his lot nnd part In hell. And he hall there suiter torments which, whether they bo material or spiritual, re of such a nature and intensity as to be aptly represented by tho tormeul. of nquenohable fire. And from this torment he shall nevor have surcease nor ospitc, but shall be maintained in a conscious existence of nneoasing nguish forever and over. Lot it bo said at the start that Ihe doctrine itself, when cluarly grasped md especially when specifically applied, isan appalling doctrino. To bo sure, tkis is no conclusive argument gainst its truth, for lifo nnd death are appalling facts nnd full of somber tragedy on any theory of escha'.ology. But tho popular miud is not severely logical, and thero is an obstinate opiu­ mism, which in the long run, overrides all more formal logic and flouts any thoory which blasphemes its irrational hopefulness. The doctrino iu questiou. while it may be calmly held ns a part of a speculative system, becomes a mental horror and nightmare the moment it is specifically applied. It is a doctrine difficult nileod in tho moditations of tho study but almost impossible in the presence of the tears of the mourner and ahoy* the face of the silent dead.' The speaker made his point clear by picturing a young man of non-religious habits, but who had never done any serious wrot.g, lying doad in his colllu. •The question concerning tho destiny of such is constantly railed, 'l'ho ular thought, untrained in tho a tios of the theological sshool and full of human sympathy, says thai this young man was not guilty of any transgressions which would warrant the implication of such an awful and impossiblo misery. The average man says: 'No man, except ho be a degraded' savago, would dream of burniug a mau to death for any crime ho might commit, and I do not beliovo thai God, who is called Love, will comlomn any man to the awful pains of an endless burning.' Dr. Holman then indicated some of tho factors in the modern dissent from the doctrine: First-The domination of individualism in modern thinking. Since wo aro potential sons of Hod. man has a right to assert against every ;and all tyrannies his independence of thought aud acliou. Tho doctrines which underlie tho teachings of Josus, but which wero obscured by the ecclesiastical assumptions of Rome, was reasserted with revolutionary power by tho Protestant reformation. Tho impulse of llus individualism has defied the Rom ish churoh, destroyed thrones, insti tuled republics, broken the shackles of tho slave, aud transformed civilized governments. The man who has learned his individualism at the feat of Luther and Calvin and Christ himself, faces a doetriue which his untaught sentiments declare to bo cruel and unjust and clonics it in th* name of his emancipated manhood. His logic may b» poor and his exegesis a minus quan tity, but he is a logi'.iniatc product of tho Protestant reformation. Second-John Calvin taught an iron sectarianism from which modern theology has strenuously revolted. But while tho theologians havo been Irying to extricate us from tho Inexorable fate taught by Calvin the scientists have beau weaving about us the silken web of a tar more inexorablo because nou seutinent nocossitarianism. Tha doctrine of the scientists in the popular mind takes this form: 'I am what my heredity and environments make me. The lemperament and ciroumstnncos which havo made me what I am, I am not responsible for.' Third—The modern novel, with its subtle psychological analysis aud deep insight into the nomplox and mystori- ous forces which mould character has done much lo introduce an element of self pity into tho modern mind. The lake of fire, the gnashing of teeth, the endless nightmare of anguish and horror —the popular mind taught by the modern novel in Ihe mystery and com plexity of life snrinks bnok from this awful vetdict that rejects it iu the name of high nnd holy pity. Fourth l'ho discussion of Biblical critics and tho modern theories of oschatology havo all had their effeots. 'Modern scholarship,' says your newspaper theologian, 'is showing that the scriptures do not loach such horrible doctrines.' Aud since the only reason for accepting the doctrine Is tho bnliof that it is taught in the Bible, the last prop is now taken away and the awful notion must go. It is no use to meet the statemont with flat donial, for so long as thure be oven ono eminent scholar standing for the milder view th* people will dub that one man 'modern scholarship.' All theso things have brought about a wide-spread revolt which the preach or must meet, aud this rovolt lias its orgiu in primal feelings of pity and justice. If tho traditional view taught of Jesus, christians mrst accept it; if it is accepted it introduces a difficulty and woaki.ess into Ihe Internal evidonro for Christianity, f*r tho doctrine from th* standpoint of human intelligence is impossiblo of reoonoilia- tion with the doctrine that God is love tho dootrine cannot b* popularly established by more weight of authority. If the dootrine be rocoived it must be with unutterable sadness as the best thing God oan do for sinful man. If It be rebooted it must bs rejected with glad nes* as an exoreseno* of unsound exo gesis and incomplete theology.' " It la perhaps just to Rev. Holman lo say thai he claims his paper does not express his views, but simply shadows tho "popular revolt" against lb* ortho dox creeds, without venturing an opin ion pro or con. It seems som* of Ihe ministers sustain him and absolve him from the crime of heresy, among them tho severe yr orthodox Dayid Tico. Be this as it may ho made a bad break in selling foith the views of tho liberal thinkers without submitting any argument to disprove them. It proves that he has been a deep thinker on these subjects, nnd It may be considered miracle if a year passos by bofore bis connection is sevorad with his churoh Th* Tribune of Thursday publish™ tho letter in full from the original copy and by acar*fnl reading of it we oan arrive at no other logical deduction save thath* at heart U in sympathy with the "popular revolt." The subject was to hay* been discussed to-day (Sinday)ln the ohurobes ot Minneapolis, both liberal and orthodox, and It will be soma time before qui*t reigns, Tho leaven is working and may the right and the truth prevail to the end that man may have a higher and better conception ot tho father of all, nnd be lud by the gentle cords of love up to a higher and, better life. TUB democrats never tiro of preaching coonomy, but they never praetice hat they prnaill. When they stole the New York legislature thoy justified tho crime on iho ground that thoy intended to givo the pcoplo of that state an economic administration. The legivlatnre will adjourn this week. Il has been democratic in both branches, the first of its kind in many years. Il had no excuse for not introducing economy iuto its administration with the whole stale government In the hinds of democrats. But the appropriations of this legislature fool up ?SO,000,000 as against $19,8^0.041 for the republican legislature of 1891: S17.- •140.804 for that of 189'J; $16,940,847 for tha*. of 1889; S17.G2G.567 for 1888; $10,771,448 for 1887; $14,489,805 for 1880, and ^15,829,124 for 1885. All these preceding legislatures were republican in one or both branch«s, and none of their appropriations came within $10,000,000 of this pending democratic administration at Albany.— Inter Ocean.

If so hooked that the line can not bo out, tho strucrglo is furious but short, the shark giving up In much IOBB timo than a game fish of half his size, such us the channel bass, salt water trout or snapper would do. I once hooked a shark about flvo foot long, which fought longer than usual, and whon brought to gatf ho was fouud to be hooked in u side fin, so Hint ho retained his full powers.
