rcaclioa Its readers another president of thu
United States will havobeen elected, or rath
cr n former president will hnvo liecn elcctd,
uuleM tho unlikely shall have occurred and
neither candldnto shall have secured n ma
jority of tho electoral college. Iu that cane,
of course, n president will not he electa! un
til congress meets. It would Imj futile for
any man to attempt to predict, with any de
gree of posltlvencss, who the new president
will be. The result In New York is wholly
doubtful. Iloth the republicans and demo
crats lay violent claims to victory iu the
pivotal Btnto. Tho matt who can toll how
New York will go can tell who will lie presi
dent, for the ono is practically equivalent.
It is conceited that it Cleveland curries Now
York, and his friends sny that with Hill and
Tnmmany at work for him he cannot lose it,
he will succeed Mr. Harrison. Hut Mr. Har
rison may carry New York and still not be
Micccisful, Indiana, his home state, is ex
tremely doubtful. Hoaro somo of tho w est
cm states usually reliably republican. Even
Nebraska Is doubtful. It is more than
doubtful as far as Mr. Harrison is concerned.
Kdward Itosewater, editor of tho re nnd
the Nebraska incuilier of tho national com
mittee, In nu interview last Tuesday with a
correspondent of tho New York W, said
that thero was no usuof his misfitting thu In
dication; that the elect oi al voto of Nebraska
will bo cast for Weaver and Field, tho Indo
pendent candidates for president anil vice
prtsldent. It In admitted that u lnrc.o ma
joi ity of tho democrats of tho state will vote
the independent electoral ticket In the hou
,of cutting oir eight electoral votes from tho
Harrison column, and if tho lmlccnhjiits
prove as strong as they were two yearn ago
and oven one-tenth of tho democrats voto
with them, it w ill swamp tho republican elec
toral ticket. Hlmllai conditions prevail In
other western state ui.d threaten to cut
down Mr. Harrison's rot in tho electoral
college to less than a majority, thus throw
ing the election into tho house of represent'
olives. As that body is overwhelmingly
democratic it would of course elect drover
Tho stato ticket, owing to tho superior or
ganization and campaign work of the lepub
licans, tho latter will probably bo victorious.
Such aro tho Indications, at least, but tho in
dependents clsmorouBly claim a complete
victory. It is hardly probable, however,
that tho Independents are ns strong ns two
years ago, which was an off year, and there
can 1m little aid exected from democrats iu
that direction, although It Is not considered,
that tho democrats aro materially iu it
Thero may be a possibility of tho election of
Van Wyck for governor, but the probability
extends no further down tho ticket. Hot
fights are being waged iu all of the congres
sional districts and no man in either party
can be considered to have a walk-away
Frobably tho hottest fight of all is tho one
between Hrj an and Field. As fur as demo
cratic aid Is concerned Mr. Uryuu has had to
make his light practically alone, but he has
made a brilliant ono and has every promise
or effective aid from tho independents,
Every assistance has been rendered Mr. Field
by his party, but It will bo surprising If he
bo elected. It Is certain that he will not get
the full republican strength, while Mr. Ury
an will draw both from tho republicans and
Independents. The siectaclo presented by
the Independent candidate, Mr. Shamp, is
sufficiently pitiful to draw tears from n stone.
Having laid himself open to the suspicion on
the part of his party leaders that he was
working In the interest of JuiLje Field and
merely to keep it. dependents from voting for
Bryan, ho has lcen unablo to satisfactorily
demonstrate his good faith, and therefore
finds himself deserted and lonesome In the
house of his political friends. Possibly he
may onco have expected to bo elected, but
his dream of bliss is o'er. There Is little
doubt that tho eutlro republican legislative
ticket In this county will be elected.
Col. George H. Skinner may not be dis
posed to admit, but it may bo chronicled as
a fact, nevertheless, that he has devised a
great invention. Ho was Impelled to this
great mental freak one day during the past
week by the sight of n huck-slrlver who was
diligently stamping his feet on the stono
pavement to keep them warm his feet,
Tho colonel's idea Is to so construct stones
sldowulksus toleuvo a continuous area be
nenlh them, through which n current of hot
air may be pouted In winter to keep tho pavo
ments warm, and a current of coldnlrin
summer to keep them cool. He would have
them so regulated that one could tap the
stream In winter for lieat with which to
charge foot-warming pans for livery pat
rons, or In summer for cool nlr with which
to batho n throbbing brow. As soon ns tho
colonel has secured a patent on his Idui he
will present his scheme for the consideration
of tho city council. When It comes down
to inventing Col. (leorgo II. Hklnner can bo
safely relied upon us strictly in It,
That always chaimlug season of the year
In Lincoln when tho maple worm and the
cockioach abdicate In favor of tho member
of the legislature, who is usually big enough
to fill tho places of both, Is r.ipldly npproncli
Ingaiid owncis of hash hotiv uud looms to
rent aio w sxltig Joyful ut tho prospect. Ah
a rule Lincoln peoplo hoie and pray that the
legislature will not lo lndcondent this year.
This Is not altogether owing to any violent
general prejudlco against the principles ad
vocated by Independents, butchielly ttecauso
independent legislator ns a rule don't stml
any mcro money than Is nbsolutoly necessary
during their olUcial pilgrimages. It is a fact
that during tho lost session of tho legislature
most of tho lndeK'iulents hoarded their sal
nrlea with n xenl that could easily have lead
ono to Mlovo that they wero hero chlelly for
the money thero was In It. There were very
few of them who apicared to know how to
spend their money had they been so disposed,
nnd it Is reasonably certain that most of
them wero drawing better wages than they
havo ovor enjoyed In their lives before,
Many of them wore oven parsimonious nnd
appeared to deny themselves thu mildest lux
uries, or even tho ordinary comforts. Of
course such men wero not such ns Lincoln
tradesmen llko to sou occupying tho leglsln
tlvo chairs. As a rule legislators aro liberal,
nnd many of them profligate in their expen
ditures, and local trndo Is considerably stim
ulated during tho sosslous. About nil of thu
increased activity in trudo during the last
session, however, was duu to thu lobby and
unofllelil visitors attracted to tho city.
Therefore It Is that Lincoln Ksplo ns a class
do not wish to see another Independent legis
lature elected, and this consideration Is prob
ably us Kjtent us tho election of n United
Stutos senator. Thero nr a good many peo
ple till over the state whostiare this dislike to
olllclol simplicity that savors so much of
stinginess. They are of both soxes. Hut
oven tho pronounced parsimony of legis
lators during thu lust session did not pruvuut
thu usual scandal, us oven tho Independent
exemplars of olllclul economy and personal
morality could not all withstand tho blandish
uunts of tho adventuress, who nlwnys hovers
around tho plucu where statesmen nui)t.
Hut the coining session will be a lively ono,
whoever may lw elected, ns thero Is a senator
to elect, which always draws a crowd.
Thero is little, question that the republican
legislative ticket will bo elected In this
county, but there is ono nnmo thereon which
ubovu all tho others thu peoplo of Lincoln
should remember to vote for. It is that of
K. E. Moore, candidate for state senator. A
man of undisputed Integrity and suierlor
intelligence, and more than others a warm
friend of this city nnd county, where his
largo Interests lie. His election should be
practically unanimous. Certainly no demo
crat or republican can afford to vote against

There Is no use denying tho fact that If
Mavor Weir Is again a candidate for tiwycr
in thn spring, he will stand n mighty good
show of Mug elected. It will not I hi U'Causo
of nny prremlnontnhlllty manifested by him,
cither. It will tie because of circumstance
over which he has no control, It is gener
ally understood that Exciseman Kelly has
directed H)llce nITairs for mouths past, nml If
ho had started out to ro elect Mayor Weir ho
could not havo gone about It In n inoie ef
fective way than tho course ho has puisued
iu relntion to Kllco affairs. It lias been np
I nrent all along that the saloonkeepers and
gain biers of tho city havo Iteon getting about
all tho prlveleges thoy desired. They are
getting them now. Gamblers have pllisl
their vocations without any Interference
from the police whatever, and saloonkeepers
have kept open with Impunity long uftor
hours and especially ou Sundays. Wlno
rooms are oieuly maintained by many of
them, which are patronized by men uud
women ntall hours. Ono need not stand
long at the door of any of these wine rooms
without seeing women passing in and nut,
and as a rule thoy are women who do not
rank among tho lowest as lar as reputation
goes. Many an unueecting husband would
bo shocked at what he might encounter at
tho doors of tkeso wine rooms that Is, if ho
would watch and were p ikscsmxI of any bet
ter powers of eiceptlon than tho (X)llce.
The police, as a rule, don't see very much,
and thero are not enough of them to consti
tute any appreciable annoyance. Peoplo
who watch the trend of such affairs will
hardly auction the workot the police pow
ers that bo, and will liar lly stop to couIdor
that Mayor Weir, although he is known to
disapprove of these things, bus never lifted a
hand to stop them since he was warned by
the supremo court that there wero laws for
his own regulation as well as for tho regula
tion of police uffairs, saloonkeeiiers and gam
blers. Mayor Weir appears to have again bitten
off moiu than he can conveniently chew.
Ho has undertaken to secure the absolute
ownership of the police foice by declaring
John Doolittle's sent vacant by appointing
his son-in-law, Mr. Stull, to succeed him.
Had Mayor Wlerread Thk Couiukh with a
better understanding of its uccuiucy he
would have known that Mr. Doolittle hud
not ouly not renounced his citizenship In
Lincoln but was u candidate, for major of
this city, Mayor Wier must have learned
this fart, whether ho lead it iu The Couiukh
or not, as it has of late been generally re-
ortsl, and his effort to declare Mr. Doolit
tle ucltUen of Chicago looks llko a mighty
cheap attempt to dli-po) of an opN)itlon
candidate for major. Hut why does Mayor
Wier desire to own the police foice. bisly
and soulf Is it simply un uiibellUh desire to
see the laws enfoicidf If hu Is so anxious to
have the luws eufoiced, why don't ho usotho
present jkiIIco forcef It has novei'dihobeynd
Ills orders, and stands ready now toobevanv
onier no may issue. That niuy be Ills excuse,
but It will be upptileiit to many that he
wants to make out of the ollce force a rote
rloof iKilitlculstilkers in his own behalf
just whut tho luw putted by the lust legMu
lure wns Intended to piuunt. Theie is no
reason why a major should bo eiupoweicd
to create out of any city government un ele
ment torthe ei puliation of disown Hjwer,
Hut Mayor elr Huiidsu mighty poor show
of obtaining tho absolute power hu ciuvc
over tho police f ice, for jut ns hi, hud in
uugmuted his movement to decline Mr. !),,.
little a I'lheu of Chicago, that gentleman
lutiiructto Lincoln on hunduj lust, and on
Monday joined with Mr. Kulley in u meeting
ottl.oexciso Isjiud, nt which Major Weir
was not pii-M-ut. 'I ho niujur is still holding
thu nick. Hut nu wlilgouutuiiiihy torn
ale sjinpallij loi ltiiiiselr by cluliuiug that
hu liieiuly deslied to obiiiln absolute coutioll
ol the poucu lorce sothiit he might hau tho
laws enforced, Every limn to whom ho tells
this pitiful tale should ndc him first what
law mo being disobeyed, nnd If thero aro
any, then why ho doesn't order tho police
force to slop It, Ho cannot excuse himself
for not u-lng thn power he has by claiming
that I tf is nolonoiigh. Ho has innio oworlii
thu control of thu police foice now than lis
tho ma) or of Un nha or almost any other
western city ovet that drpaitmetit of their
rostieotlve city governments. The police are

tho looul Held Is conrrriiiil. It wns the silli

Mr. Oscar Wlldo who a few years ago did
so niucli lo enthuse nu nrtlstio cram ami
create a decorative style has gone to the ex
tout of declaring that Ufa Imltnte art, that
life In fact Is tho minor nml acta the reality,
and ho sets out to prove tho truth of this
paradox Iu a very amusing ways n contrlbu
tlou in tsxik form recently issmsl, Listen
"A gi eat nit 1st Invents n tjKi and life tries
to copy It, to reproduce It In a popular form
llko nn enterprising publisher." Wo know
that neither Holbein or Vnndyck found In
England what they have given us. They
brought with them their t)'cs, Llfa with
her kivn Imitative faculty sot herself to sup
ply tho masters with models. The Greeks
understood Wildes' theory welt, nnd Iu their
bride's chamber set the statue of Hermes or
Apollo Hint she might hear children llko the
works of art with which she was surrounded.
They knew Hint llfo gains from tot not
merely sentiment, spir'ltmllty, depth of
thought nnd passion, soul turmoil or soul
K'nce, but that she can foi in herself un the
very lines nnd coloisof art, and can repro
duce the dignity of I'heldies as well as tho
gracoof Praxiteles, Hence en mo their ob
jection to realism. They disliked it on
purely social grounds, l'hey felt that It
Inevitably makes s.'ople ugly and they wero
nodoubt ciind Iu their Ideas of Impression,
No great artist ever did or over will sue
thing as they really wero mid ure. Life is
real life in earnest, niid Iu nit things aro not
what they seem. Soma artist ha a bright
Idea, a virtue to express, a charity to unfold,
n bniuty to Impress, or some characteristic
to Idealize. They hike this theme In embrlo,
and turn and twist and enlarge uud expand
until the mission Is put formed nnd tho pic
hue Is done. A wrtrnlt painter must give
a goisl likeness, one that tho enemies can
not sny is (lattery and the friends will like.
TIioJuimiihso artists have created a ceilulu
Japanese people, who In reality never ex
isted, for in truth tho race of Japan uie no

how near they came to the women of that
locality! Do you look at the stately Athenian
women nnd luiiiglnu you know any thing of
their people I If so you uro deluded. Thos

of tho period when Alliens niid Koine wor
In the height of their glory nnd splendor,
you inny readily guess that they wero formed
lor their magnificent physique and propor

some authentic historian ; we find that instead
xf the gowns of (lowing graceful dniKrles
and loose girded waists, wo have tight luced
women, highdiealod Issits, dyed their hair
yellow mid puiuttsl their briuen faces with
much rouge, uud weio Iu fact more gaudy
Iu their dress and loud In their actions, oven
more so than the silly fashionables of our
present day. Iu tho art woild as In all
other professions, jieoplo rise up uud are the
craze and tho lion of the day, and while
thus riccepted u mo,t deploiable consequence
Is the overestimating of tho artists enjoying
publla favor and tho values (false) placed
upon many of their (Mentions. Many have
reullred largo foi tunes, and Iu cousvqilBUc
the publlu hnvo imagined that any painter
may easily Income famous. Serious aitlsts
will smile nt this sort of thing mid think It
stupid. Few of tho ci Itlcs of ui t productions

Involved ere an artist Is able and willing to

easy task to accomplish and hence the would
be purchasers lefuse lo pay according to ser

You lorget that I have Uen thli ty years

Is very often the case Iu tho studio. The world

standard for our woik and inantain prices

to servo a routine, tiresome as It Is, ever
