The Republican and Populist partle have distinct characteristics. The Ch cnso convention, -in that It ilepoi'tc from the platform of four years npo denounced Clevelivnd and leaned Populism, onrned for Its followers name, "Popocrat.'V, The Indliuia.poll convention, in that It supported Clevo laml. .TotTersou and' Jackson, Is propci ly entitled in history to the name "Dcmocnit."' The .Tournnl In its refer enccs will use this distinction. Al Democrats In Cass county who aclher to their party principles, sound money free trade, etc., will be designated a Democrats. Those who have bolte- nnd Rone over to free silver will b .termed Popocrats. This distinction i uocess.'irj- that the public may not b' confused. There are Democrats who recopnlzi that neither protection nor free tr,ad< cut any flsnre with no currency to cai ry on trade. They ore for sound money first, preferring to divide 'on the tariff later with those who disagree. They will vote for McKlnley. They will b classed as Republicans in this cam palsn, in which sound tioney is th vitiil issue. The Pharos and its .followers, wlv were for sound money and then fo free silver, will be styled "Hypocrats.' July 31, 1803, the Omoha World-lifer aid of wliich William T. Bryan ,was cdi tor, contained the following cditoria utterance: No people except tho greedy owner of silver mines, Anxious to make iiior dinate profits, are Interested in coin a?e at the ratio of 1C to 1, No peopl< except those nvariclons owners o money, who profit by contracting tb currency, arc Interested In prohibiting honosr free silver coinage at the rati of 23 to 1. We have no silver mines Ii Nebraska, and the interests of % people of this State simply require fro nnd unlimited coinage o£ sliver upon the basis of its reasonable value, wliicl cannot be far from 1 par of gold to 2' of -silver. It is very probable that the foregoing was printed before Mr. Bryan wa allured by the offer of unlimited speaking at ?C;000 a year by the Bl nwt«llic League.

MAVOURNEE'N. Washington Post: It was unayoiil able that'there should be some rpvlva of'the discussion-of the dutharsElp o the celebrated song,'' "Kathleen 'Ma vourueon," in connection with the an nouncoment of the doath^a few days -ago when It was given'out to the press Unit, tho composer: Prof ."Crouch,•••« old and needy, living in Baltimore abject poverty. ..there Vas , some,; pro test against tho assertion that ho 1 was tho person to whom belonged the houoi of the production. But: the statomcii',1 that Crouch was actually in want, an. lack of proof of the falsity of the clalii softened the argument to a nullitjj His authorship seemed to be generallj accepted; charitable contribution! poured In upon him, profits receive* from the increased sale or the song were more liberally dlvide'd-wlthyhim and It is believed that he : !lved In com fort to the time of his death, upon an Income from what may be In the .mild; est terms denominated a plagiarism. There are persons yet living in Wash ington who were pupils of Prof. Croucl away back in the '50's and who asser that they saw the manuscript of,th< music of "Kathleen Vavourneen' among tho professor's papers.. They admit, however, that this would no bo legal proof that plagiarism had not been committed. There nrc those llv i'ng here, also, who knew Prof, Crouch who know -that tho song and music wore beyond his limited abilities, anil who never for a moment accepted the claim of his authorship as having the least foundation. One of these persons is Mr. John F Coylc, the venerable journalist,. .whd| from 1841 until the deluge of changing administrations overwhelmed it, was successively reporter, editorial writer •and proprietor of the famous Xatlona' Intelligencer, tho chief mouthpiece o£ tlic Whig party during the life of thai Important organization. Mr. Coyle has aTways boon a close student of musica nffalrs, -and his estimable wife, whose memory is dear to Washington, was noted for her miagnificont voice, anc .fine technique. It was with profound astonishment 'that Mr. Coyle heard years ago of the claim of. Mr. Crouch but sympathy for the man's nece.ssi ties prevented him from entering. Into a discussion of the subject. "While Crouch lived," said Mr Coylo to the writer recently, "I refrained from giving tho accumulatcc evidence that would have destroyed Ills means of livelihood. His persistent •claims of the authorship of 'Kathleen •Mavoumeen' -made him In a genera way, tho accepted author and doubt less others who, like myself, wor< aware of the falsity .of 'the assertion were kept quiet for a reason .slmllai to that which closed .my. '. mouth Crouch apparently sadly needed I( tl}e revenue which ho derived from.tlje "fraud, and possibly,the world Is'not the worse for giving it to him, as his 'imposition in no way injured tho rea authors o£ poem and music 1 . "Now that Crouch is dead, however It would seem that justice should be •done, and the 'honor of the composition .placed where it honestly belongs; "The beautiful song was written by Mrs. Anne Crawford, an actress, pi the Dublin Theatre, ^who was born in 1734 and died in 1801, seven' years bo. fore-Crouch was born. . It Is not known precisely at what date It., attained popularity, but It was written when She was In the zenith of her fame, about 1760-70. 'Certainly it was well- known rttt the time of the regency when Brummel was at the height of .his absurd 'but extraordinary .career,'and •that is the reason Mansfield Introduced it Into -his admirable-play- of 'Beau "Brumme),' where ;the production Js spokeu 'Of as being one of -the cele 1 brated songs of the day. '.':.•" ''' One smart theatrical critic 1 of'thls city took Mansfield to task for.'-the gross anachronism of Interpolating Into a drama of the last century men; tion of a modern song. Mansfield, with show of irony, showed the'gentle^ man <julckly and conclusively-that the piece Tvas snug and-applauded at -the period represented by the drama;' "Mrs. Crawford became Mrs. Barry and appeared 'at the London theatres, contemporary with Mrs. Slddons, 'arid was a competitor of that famed actress : for public favor, playing Juliet; -Desdemona, Jane Short and other heroines of the dramas which held the board's at; that. time. The dramatic histories and records of the day spoak of her In :erms only less flattering Uian those Bestowed .upon the Immortal Siddona.

The first time I remem-' ier.-;to have heard the claim 6f Crouch'' llBputed was In 1850. 'In that year a' npiable German musician ''•' 'came/tl?'

"One writer, in a notice of the deatl of Mr. Crouch, asserts that the words of the song wore written by the latter and! that the pretty lyric was fouude< upon n. story of which Mrs. Crawford was the author. Had the writer re ferrod to 'Bartletfs Poetical Quota tions,' or Sir George Gravos's 'Musica Dictionary,' he would have avoided ai exposure of his ignorance."' • re The he THE SENTINEL. Casts Hean Slurs at the Sound Honey Delegates. . It is regretted that the report ot th convention o£ the National Democracy printed by the Indianapolis Sentinel will not bo read by every mail who has over voted the Democratic ticket •In times gone by such a slur as the fol lowing, printed by a Republican paper would have called down the bittercs 1 denunciation. Tho Sentinel says of the delegates in attendance: "All wcr stopping at the best hotels in the citj and nearly every one had telegraphed ahead for rooms with bath rooms at tachcd." If a Republican, in 1 years gone by, had dared to intimate that : Democrat would not be guilty of In dnlglng iu such a luxury as a bath, he would have been crucified on a cross o cuss words, and to cast the aspersion that Democracy represented "the great unwashed" was as much, as a man's -life was worth. The Sentinel is owned by a man who is sucking the public teat under the Cleveland administration. Mr. Morss the owner of the Sentinel, Is the ropro sentativc of the United States as Con sul-Gencral at Paris, one of the mosi Important foreign consular offices in the gift of President Cleveland. It would seem that Mr. Morss ought to .resign his office, before attacking the Cleveland administration. PERSONAL. Miss -Maymio Taylor is visiting Mis Etta. Routh.

As a historical souvenir the cat is • decided novelty, which comes from the sacred shadow of. Independence hall, says the Philadelphia Record. Sometime Ago people whose business took them through the historic old hall and the surrounding squat* frequently saw a colony of common looking cats loafing about in. that vicinity. All these animals could trace their ancestors back to ft couple of good ratters which had been introduced into the cellar* of the old htU 1 to depopulate the rodeata which' thrived and fattened ihere. The cate cleaned out the one nuisance, and be* came nuisances in turn. They were cared for and fed by a colored man imed Charity, employed in the sherifl'a office. When tie animals increased so rapidly as to threaten to overrun the place Charley conceived a brilliant idea. He decided to turn the cats into money. He found people were willing to pay'as high aa one dollar for a cat born and reared in Independence hall. Ha soon disposed of all buto.no or two of th« cate. These few survivors were left in the haJl when the sheirlFs office moved up to the city hnll and took Charley with it. . Smoked before tne liing.

He writes them well, too, and enjoys life as is the privilege of a man, who has successfully applied himself to his business. Among a number ol friends with whom he was talking was one whose long acquaintance makes it possible for his to say things which would be resented from other persons. "It seems to me," remarked the friend, "that you are a lucky person." "Well," was the reply, "that is what the envious always say of men who make* a success of literature. I have no doubt that remark has been made of nearly every man who has worked hard and finally prospered." "You seem to take a rather serious view, of your calling." "I have to. It means shoes and neckties and bouse rent and three meals a day and lots of other little things that make life pleasant." "Still, I don't think it is very much to be proud of." "Perhaps not. I struggle with my self-esteem every now and then." "Well, this period of civilization has certainly produced strange demands." "That's it. There's the keynote of the whole situation. When I reflect that I am making a, good living in an era when Shakespeare or Bryan would probably walk the streets in vain looking fora job, I tell you I can't help getting a little bit proud, and I might just as well own up to it." ' DANCING. It HB* H»d • Warlike Slcnlflcknoe Among People! of All Age*. Dancing, with which word civilized people are went to associate pleasure and peaceful enjoyment, has had a warlike significance with various tribes of people throughout all ages of the world, and itisstill in vogue among the blanket tribes of red men in America. The famous Pyrrhic dance represented the overtaking of an enemy and doing battle with Mm. To-day, among tine Zulus, grand dance* are merely the accompaniment to the colloquial war and hunting songs, in which the women, put questions which are answered by the men. There are.-animic fights, -which go by the :name -of war dances, almost universal among rtribes to which ^war is one of the; great interests of .life. The bravery dance of the Dahonjeyans, and the .Hoolee: of the_Bhil -tribe -In the Vinflhya hills of 3nd in, ore the most apt illustrations. Nearly oil savage tribes have a regular war dance, so that it is scarcely possible to select one as having n more warlike significance than tho rest. All. the performers appear in fighting costume, handle their weapons and go through, the movement of challenge, conflict, pursuit or defeat. There is one very picturesque dance of the Katal Kaffirs which probably refers to the departure of the warriors for battle. •The women appeal plaintively to the men, who slowly withdraw, stamping on the ground, and darting their short spears or assegais toward the sky. TRUE WHEN WRITTEN. Hot Time Brought Ch»n(<w mt th« Simmer Resort. I was attracted to a place in Virginia, near the Atlantic ocean, where the combined advantages of surf bathing and nh tbaence of mosquitoes were advertised, says a writer in the Washington Star. The surf bathing was there, but there were never more or larger mosquitoes than infested the place. The landlord was a leader in the church and made a great point of bis conscientiousness, so I questioned him about the insects: "Mosquitoes worse this year than usual?" I asked. "Reckon not. They gen'ally bite purty sharp this season of the y'ar." "Are there always this many here?" "Erbout — some gits killed, but don't eeem ter make no difference."
