Mayor Wolr hn", it teem, lacoratod tho

tho eople of Lincoln to put an extra bottle
of wine or two on tho table, lu welcome ot

Indeed thank tholr stars that ho was eloctod;
mid thoito who borato him for hi action In

that he hn no reason to regret what he hn

they are only sneaking hypocrites.
Chief ot Police Dingo knows better thau
to enter a theatre whllo the play Is on, to
ring the curtain down. There nro bad
plays to bo xure, but nono nre so bnd as to
domrve such a troHtmeiit. Decent people
will not attend certnln shows, and this Is
about all the punishment that certain show
stand In need of to drive them from tho
stage. It tho Chief hud n wldo awake re
porter to assist him, ho might perlmp hurry
the death ot ono half tho compiles on tho
road, by publishing In tho papers tho next
morning the names ot tho most prominent
spectator; and by so doing the Chief would
be a Iwuefactors, for, as the years roll on our
pooplo Hro moro and mora impoted upon by
tho glaring lithographs of tho greatest
frauds; and the only sonnblo way to stop It,
1 to kill all tucli plays, by a refusal to at
tend them. By the way, the pnpero now
and then speak of police raid upon certain
house of III repute, and tho thing keep go
ing bravely on. It I again kuggoated lo the
Chief of Police, that a wldo awako reporter
In this cane would also bo ot groat service; I.
e, publish the real names of the men who nro
caught In such places, without regard to their
standing. This method would prove effective
and no mistake. As it Is, it reads "a lot ot men
were caught at so and S3," Instead ot thit it
should read "Mr. Smith, Mr. Jouos," in
plain letters with Initial attached "were
caught at Mr Bo and Ho hut night." Try
It on once and watch th results.
"Colonel Tom" J. Hlckey ot the Capital
hotel will branch out into fields and pastures
new about the first of April, when he take
up the managerial reins ot the new Lincoln
Park. With the wider field In which to glvo
play to tho varied talents he is possessed of,
I am of the opinion that both the Colonel,
tho ark people and tho publio will protlt by
the change. I hear that "Dick" Johnson,
the present clerk, will succeed him at the
health I tho lmmdlato cuttse ot his stepping
down nnd out. Ho tins boon troubled by a
bronchial nIToctton for somo time nnd its
continued Inroads boenmo so nlnrmlng that
he decided to dispose of his Interests hero aud

Twentv-flve year of Btnto-hood on Tues
day next, Is Nebrnskn's ngo lu tho Union I A
ipinrtorof a century; a generation, so to
penk, in tho life of men. It there Is nny
where lu tlio union any other state that can
show the progress that Nebraska can show,
proclaim it, that It may bo known.
The history of Nobraka I n marvel ot
pluck and push, nil the wnr through. Fully
a million und a quarter of people there where
twenty-flvo years ago, there were senrco tlmt
many thousands, nnd hundreds of inllo ot
railway to tho credit of that people. Aud
yet withal, not railroads enough to carry
nwny the products of cur agricultural cIiishu
to the eastern marts. The material advance
ment of the state Is without precedent, and
it can bo anld that the lutellectnnl Interests
have kept xico with them. It would take a
good sized volume to do Justice to tills case;
nothing short of that can give the detail of
our state's history. It can bo noticed how
ever that lu the mall, the lending minds of
this day are the same who under the territor
ial days somo where In the lift Ion, came hero
us young men "to grow up with tho country"
somo of them have; some ot them hnvo not
and a comparative few have dropped by tho
way side. These old settlers can really be
called the fathers ot Nebraska, und they arc
by all odds tho very best friends the state
has today, Htaunch and truo hnvo they
tieeu, and thus they will remain. Nebraska
can well be proud of them, aud owe them
much. Long may they live!

The many friends of MoMurtry were sur
prised to hear of his probable app ointment
to the U. 8. consulate at Sydney, Australia,
and wo daro say that nobody was more sur
prised than Mr. McMurtry himself. The
Register ot the Department of State shows
Sydney to be a second clasi consulate way
dowu on the list, tho salary ot which is
3,000 per annum, with forty per cent of
the salary as extras for rlerk hire and rent,
or a total ot $3,800; to this may bo added
some fifteen hundred dollars for notarial
fees, at most, making a grand total of four
thousand dollars. It i not au important
consulate so far as commercial fees from in
voices are concerned, since it turns into tho
treasury of tho United State only an aver
age ot some ten thousand dollars per annum.
Mr. McMurtry can make three or four
times that much right here In Lincoln.
Moreover be Is not what may be called an
active politician, and the question arises:
what particular interest would be saved
through bis appointment! The poor man
would die of grief over there. Business is
his life, and bo would not be allowed to en
gage la any business at Sydney, No, Mc
Murtry will not go to Australia. It any
Nebraskan is selected for a consuler ap
pointment of some sort hi name is H. M.
Uushnell; be Is an active politician and can
be recogcited without shocking the feelings
ot his fellow republicans. It would not be
genteel to say that be cau be spared, but be
can, much b.tter than Mr. McMurtry could.
