Wnterl Wnteri Tlmt Is what tho ulty
council Is nfter, The CoituiKii will mildly
siiKt?i-st to tlni wise men who n re more or less
disgracing Lincoln by their weekly wrangles,
that an nrU'slmi well would suttln all tliu
dllllculty mid give our city all the water
necessary for the next llfty years. They
will llud it much cheaper thnu the present
sjstcin, mid the wnter will Iw over ho much
better. Hut how deep shall we hnvn to go
for wnterl exclaims Councilman Llmpfoot.
We cannot tell; but wo can tell tho council
man that such as ho should not be heard 011
the suliject for ho Is totally 11. g. In tho mut
ter. Wo wrltn this for tho gentlemen of tho
city council who ihshv to tako euro of the
city's Interests, mid not for Hioso who deslru
to Ixirtcr n way tho city water plant to n prl
viitn company. Homo of tho largest cities
In the world depend on iirtoilan wells alto
gether for their wnter supply, mid It never
falls, True, the artesian welt In post olllco
sipuire would not answer tho purine, hut
liecnuso Its wnter Is salty Is no reason why
sweet water cannot bo hectircd In this local
ity. Under this soil of ours, there nro lakes
nnd mighty rivers Mowing tho very best of
witters; dig for ono of thuo until you find It
even though It were two thousand feet deep.
The ridiculous Iden of having soveral wells
some seventy feet deep for 11 constant mid
lasting supply dues not senk well for the In
telligence of our cople.
The council may bo reminded of tho fact
that instead of turning over tho city water
works plant to n privuto corporation, that it
would bo much better for them to pull Into
tho custody of tho iiiuulclp'ility tho eloctrlo
light plant. HUps taken to (that olToct will
meet with tho entire approbation of tho peo
ple. It Is to bo feared; however, that tho ac
tual city council is beyond redemption; In
fact It Is not a city council at all, they do
not represent tho peopto In th'i lenst, tlioy
are tho agents of the II. & M. U.K., of tho
street railway, of tho electric light company,
and of a few money scalpers thrown in,
Tho time for tho selection of candidates is
near at hand, mid it Is the duty of the bettor
citizenship of the place to see to It that men
are selected in tho various wards who can
not ticcomo tho Instruments of tho corKira-1
turns. A stop must Ihj called or else tho
proud city of Lincoln Is doomed to decay ;
Instead of 11 bourn, It will bo 11 general gloom.
It will not ho out of place to suite Ight here
that tho electric light company does not live
by Its contract with tho city; tho lights have
to burn until twelve; often they nro out ut
half past eleven; tliu co.upauy also takes un
due advantage of the innoii iiolhln, is out
of their reach. It needs 11 rigid stand; the
city has the right to ex ict it. Ifitunuuot bo
secured otherwise the contract with tho elec
tric light company should bo uunuled and a
city plant Ihj put in.
Is Chief of Police Dlnges tho vlct'm of cir
cumstances! No Indeed; ho is the victim of a
ridiculous system which allows law breakers,
thugs, mid thelves to Invoke the law In their
defense. Crime cannot claim protection; the
liberty of the criminal classes Is dangerous
to the liberty of tho people. Laws nro made
to protect tho law abiding poiplo; and such
persons have for nearly one roar been obliged
to run shy of the chief of p illce imagine
themselves persecuted, It is too silly for
anything. Hut that which is not ho silly,
but really dangjroin to our society, Is to tb.d
that wo have Judges who believe that tho law
breakers havo rights that society is bound to
respect. It will become iui04slhle to enforce
tho laws If this state of affairs is allowed to
exist much longer, aud it is n shame umiii
our Judiciary to Hud among them men who
will tako the part of law breakers nguiust
the man whoe duty It Is, In tho timiii of tho
people, to break up their nefarious and crim
inal scheme. The press is p irtly responsible
for this state of affairs, since It would ho mi
easy matter for it to give the chief of police
the support that he so richly deserves. It is
better ror our people, if he goes even further
than tho law allows him when oacaslou re
quires it. than for him not to enforce the
law at all. Tho Lincoln dallies should stand
by the chief of police under all circum-stau.-es;
by so dolu tho crooked gentry
would soon find the placa too hot to hold
The sople can rejoice that they havo nt
Inst ono Judge who does not believe in allow,
ing the law to shield the law breakers against
whom Chief of Police Dingo has made-such
a relentless mid thankless war; tho name of
that Judge Is I. W. Lansing, All honor to
him for his decision. He does not mean to
have the crooked gentry ru 1 the chief of
police into Jail, 110 matter how mu'h thoy
can swear; ho rather havo it the other way.
He knows woll euoujli that the oath iff the
ordinary mid average blackleg and crook or
their nccolytes cannot be relied upon. Ho
knows well enough that the sooner the gang
Is driven off, the better for too morals of our
young men, for It Is indeed n bad ind dan
gerous example for our youth, to see a lot of
gamblers whoso nwtliod of stealing only ill f
fer in name with those of tho sneak thief mid
house breaker, sport their tins clothes mid
diamonds upon the sidewalks, hi the bar
rcoms mid in tho lobby of our hotels with
the most audacious Impudence while assum
ing the airs of gentlemen. Luckily they
cannot deceive any ono oxcept tho very
greenest greeny; their countenances are
stamped with a capital R und they oven
smell offensive, the scent of the "bagno"
All hall to Judge Lansing, mid may tho
smaller fry Judges of the city take example
by him or else tho day of Judgement will
hit them hard.
It is not n lack of intelligence that is want
ing among our councllmen, or !nt least that
lack is not .utllclent to hurt tho city; it is
tho lack of honest puroses: mid It is this
that is fatal. Some of them never were lit
to be councllmen, either by character or In
telligence; but as bad luck will havo ic, these
are tho very ones to prove tho shrewdest, the
most energetic ns well as tho most unreliable.
How then can the city's affairs bo adminis
tered ill tho Interest of the people) it I held
by all people that the mayor is un honest
man; but what can he do against 11 majority
of the council. So Is Dingos held as n man of
honest purpose; but bow effective can he lie
110 matter how hard he tries, when the men
that should stand by him side with tho
rogues! The excise board, tho police Judgb
aud the Justices of the eaco seem to conspire
with the law breakers, aud have been the
main reliance of thoe men whom it was
Dingus' duty to punish. Tho gamblers would
long since have lieen In the Jail or p-ui, If the
mayor mid Ids chief of police ha I h id their
way, It is really too bad; aud what is the
use of being an honest man mid mi liontxt
ortlclal, If this sort of thing! to prevail) It
is to be hoped that both Weir mid Dluges
will not get discouraged; that thoy will keep
up their efforts with Increased energy: this,
mid tills nlouii will bring nlmut success. They
tuny In' nssurud that the M.ople of Lincoln
1 ognrdlcs of pilltlcnl parties will stand by
them nt all hazards.

The reason for tho ill success that has ut
