those were at Ccntrevillo General Prime and his Hold officers are doing the host they can with the support al lowed but at best the Guard is but tho nucleus about which a military force can bo organized intimoof nocil They are called militia men This is not a good name for them Tho militia of Iowa includes every male citizen between the ages of 18 and 45 years They are just as much liable to military duty as any guardsman The distinction lies in the fact that the guardsmen are trained and would furnish the necessary officers for tho militia in time of need REGIMENTAL PROMOTIONS The

boys bad a gopd tiniq and conducted themselves OUR WASHINGTON LETTER From Our Regular Correspondent WASHINGTON Aug 9 1896 Repub licans who aro thoroughly posted on the situation regard the election of a republican governor in Maryland as a certainty this year Senator Gorman overreached himself as the smartest of Eolitical bosses are apt to do sooner or itor He now has not only the Cleve land democrats against the ticket he nominated hut a number of his old time lieutenants have revolted because of his having at the re cent state convention Gorman has made a deal with Dan Lamont where by that oilytongued gentleman under takes to get the Cleveland democrats into line for the Gorman ticket but those who ought to know say that he cannot live up to his contract As a sample of the confidence Maryland re publicans feel this language used by MrA P McKissick is jjivou The re publicans arc going to carry Maryland this year as sure as fate Mr Gorman has alienated thousands of democratic voters by his cooperations with Raisin to force the nomination of Hurst for governor Hayes was promised the nomination and was clazed at the eleventh hour to lind out that the promise was not to be kept i know of hundreds oE democrats who will bolt the ticket and all the line work of Arthur P Gorman will not get them into line Hundreds more will indi rectly aid the republicans by refrain ing from voting and tho eousequeace will be a big republican victory if they do not win by at least 15000 ma jority the best political judges will bo mistaken A significant politiual move is the action of certain prominent Cleveland democrats in feeling the democratic pulse by setting a boom for Senator Vilas of VViscousin to going Although Mr Vilas is neither the first nor second choice of Mr Cleveland hois a faithful cuckoo and would be far preferable to exSecretary Whitney who has a mind and will of his own The politicians come to Washington do not con sider that Vilas would have any show for the nomination oven if backed by the administration He might in cer tain coutingencos get the support of Mr Cleveland and a portion of his cabinet but there are at least two members of the cabinet who would op pose with all the strength at their com mand the nomination of Vilas Repub licans would not object to his nomina tion he wouldbe so easv to beat The Department of State did a very unfeeling thing when it refused to re ceive public contributions for the as sistance of the wifeaiul children of ex U S Consul Waller who is in person in Franco on what ia believedto be a trumped up charge This woman and her children are in Madagascar in want The officials of the of State informed the coujM 4yvtnere citr they wero starving foreign laud The counsel then appealed through the newspapers for public contributions asking that they be sent to tho Department of State so that they could be transmitted at once to the U S Consul in Madagascar The officials refused to either receive or transmit contributions on the llimsy ground that there was no law author izing thorn to do so There may be no manmade law to coyer a case of this sort but there is a higher of would hare furnish ed authority which neither the Ameri can people nor their representatives in Congress would ever have questioned had these democratic officials used it Tho arguments for the payment of the money appropriated by the last Congress for deferred sugar bounties were made this week before His Majes ty Comptroller Bowler according to programme exSenator Mandersou loading off for tho Nebraska beet sugar people and the counsel for the Louisi ana sugar men following His Majesty has not made his decision or rallieihe has not announced it I understand that he will not attempt to decide the queston but will merely decline to ap prove the payment of the jnoney until the courts have passed upon tho con stitutionality of the sugar bounty That will accomplish the end aimed at by the the
