People have kicked so long; nnd loudly

thnt kicking a peats to bo of little avail.
Almost every evenlig now, as ladles and
gentlemen ore returning from the theatres
or other places of amusement or con mumnu,
they enccuuter the stilling trail of the street

sweeping is almost an absolute necessity, but
a little sprinkling before the sweeping is al

Last week Tuts Couiukh directed uttention
semewhat pointedly to the fact that Mayor
AVelr waste utfng and Igiioilng the police
force. That intimation was published Satur
day morning. Mayor Weir hud not issued
an older to the police force for mouths, and
had declined to direct them. The next day
Mayor Weir called up the chief of ivollce and
directed him to close up the Sunday show.
The conclusion can easily be drawn. And as
TlIK Couiukh I picdicted, his onler was
promptly obeyed, showing that the mayor
was lespcnslble himself for some evils In city
government that weie tiouhlli'g his soul, es
he needed only to order them stopped tohavo
them stoiped. The police are at Mayor
V eir's disposal ai d he cannot shrink respon
sibility for any violations of law peimitted.
It hns Lee n claimed that frequently when
the major gives oi tie is to the police that
they would infoi m the invudei? of the law
in advance of their coming, thereby giving
them time to escaie. It is alto said that the

would go out and make light of them, ami

that Chancellor Crelghton has been pom -

may be possible that Messrs. Hmltli and
Hutch, who ate both, like himself, Method

against him through a sense of Christian
duty, but III either ease the row Is n disgrace
to the church. It would have been much
better for Chancellor Cielghton, for tho
Wexleyon Univeislty and tor the Methodist
church had Chancellor Cielghton resigned
his position at tho head of tlio college long

when ho could ha vu resigned gracefully with

If he hud the Interests of the college and the

done i egal dless of culpability on his part In
the Inst nines now chilkcd up against him.

The partisan press Is making Itself decid
edly ridiculous over tliallrynii-Fleld deliites,
and at the satin) time ruining the reputation
of the newspatHTs generally as a medium (f
accurate news reports. Their reports are
flagrantly colored to suit their political pref

it that llryan is being flayed nllvo and the
democriils have It that Kiel 1 is retihtrly
nailed to the eross. When u ui'wifier In
its news columns gives accurate reports of
the sieeclis It Is of servioe to Its readers, as
It enables them to judge of the merits of the
seakers, but when it omits the s( eeches and
writes Its news revnrt from a pirtlimi stand

A suggestion of Tiik Couhikh in its list
week's issue appears to have burne fruit. It
suggested that Would-lie-governor Morton
and Woutd-he-ugaln-congreshsiiian llryan
could charm large audiences lu a Joint dis
cussion of the free silver question. Hardly
had the ink grown cola when Mr. Morton
bobs up in Lincoln nnd roasts his fallow deiu

sue. Mr. Morton did a very unwise thing,

Republican nspirants for tlie mayoralty
need not console themselres with the reflec
tion that one formidable antagonist was re
moved when John Doollttle left for Chicago.
A fl lend of Me. Doollttle is ie nisilile tor
the statement that he has merely gone 1 1 set -tie
up some business affairs for a relative und
has no intention of relluqtildiliig his resi
dence in Lincoln. Tho s line friend says he

Mu. i:iiiT0ii! Yes, I can Imngltin you nre
Itar.lug nt this Inolfenslvo cptsthi with a hsik
of blank amar.-'iiient written iisin each and
every feature of your countenance, and 1 the liberty taken lu writing
these few Hues, but III looking over the col
umiis of your paper which, by the way, my
thoughtful parents send me weekly I have
become quite Interested In your Chicago
corresMiudeut and have often wondered who
the Kirsoii In question Is. In this day and
age Chicago Is tho metropolis of the west,
but lu a few short years who knows but
wlmtHollth llend, Wash,, will have attained
that seal of prominence and instead of send
ing east for Items of popular Interest; this
wild and wooly west will be the criterion on
all social problems of the day. Indent, I
doubt not but what you would think we
had already reached that highest pluitcle of
success If it were in oiir power to attend
some of its genial gatherings. However, we
must take Into consideration the fact that a
great number of these western people wci n
Isiru r tnl brought up on tho coast and their
Intercourse with the world lu general has
amounted to very little, Hulllce to say that
while the majority of them may Ini a little
unsophisticated, to strangers, o -pedal ly au
they very hospitable, and I have often tho't
how true In this respect Is the old adage lu
regard to "most In llllaiit diamonds often be
ing enclosed in tho roughest of stones,"
Hut, Mr. Kditor, don't for a moment allow
yourself to become Impressed with tlio Idea
thnt. nil of the Inhabitants of this gay and
festive little town are of the clnss described,
for If on a sojourn here you would llud tJ
your sorrow thut we are well supplied with
'scheming real estate men, proix-rty owners,
the greater part ot whom, I regret to add,
abide not with us but III tlie effete cast, wait
lug, I siipisise, for the railroad, and by the
way it will I mi completed and trains in run
ning order by tho first of tho year, The now
station Is now under way and while It may
not compare favorably with tho one in Lin
coln, it is a very good and substantial mod
eru structure. Our now hotel Is "strictly lu
it," ns a number of Lincoln iooplu ca'i testl
y, and the credit Is due the officials of the
Northern l'uclflu railroad. It is to ho hand
somely furnished aiul (livened as soon as truf
lie demands, and with amplo room for uc-,
commodatlou. Its own water txiwor and
electric light plant, I am justlllcd in saying
that it equals even the Lincoln. It I keep on
in this strain much longer you will certainly
come to the conclusion that my boomliu fa
cilities mo getting the best of me, so to
change the subject I will tell you of an Im
mense whale seen on the ocean beach between
the Columbia river and our present location.
It measured forty-seven feet in length and
eight in diameter, being of the hump back
sK'clo. It Is claimed that Indians had
harKsiiied It unit dying from Its wounds It
was washed ashore by tho immense breakers,
Alter being viewed by thoiisauilsuf ooplo it
was put in a state of articulation by a taxi
dermist, and If I am not mistaken It will bo
exhibited at the Columbian oxisosltion. You
can imagine how oderlferous It became after
lying on the sand for a mouth or so, but east
ern tourists were undaunted in their efforts
to secure n until plis-e of Its skin to entry
away as a souvenir ot the coast.
On entering the VV'llhipa liarboi It is quite
uu ordinary sight to see one or two bundled
seals hiKily busking III the sun on the sand
bars. You will understand that these are
not of the rur-lsoariiig spec o and In a llnan-
clal way thoy benefit man but little. In this
section of the country many peoplo uiukii
regular pets of them, but V) me It isqulle
liltlful to watch them drag their little Is -lies
