In speaking of the late legislature
and its failure to come up to the ex
pectations of the public, the Omaha
Republican bits the nail on the head,
One thing is certain, that men elect
ed on a hobby issue of any sort do not
make the best, material for the general
good. When we begin to elect men
for their general fitness, for the stand
ing the? have gained in their several
professions, for their thorough rc-lia
bility as citizens, then und not till then,
way we expect sound and judicious
law making. Further comment is un
necessary at this time.
' Senatcr "Van Wyck's pension bill
lias passed the senate. This measure
increases the pensions of soldiers, who
have lost a hand or foot in the service,
from 318 to $24 a mouth, and those
who have lost a leg or arm to 8:30 a
month. This increase will be g'ener
ally approved. Such disabillity deser
ves a liberal pension, as does every
genuine disability received in tbe ser
vice, lo survivors of actual injuries
t be govern meat and the people are not
disposed to be stingy. It is only a hrst
of fraudulent pensioners' that have
made many of our people doubt the
wisdom of their past generosity. O.
After the smoke had cleared away

lie, that Mr. Parneii's calm demeanor

that of a cohsumate lea ;er, and that
had he given way under the torrentjf

truth is, their female employes earn

Another venerable fossil' of this

Virginia, who has discovered the true
democratic argument againsl protec

though there has never been a ti ine in

here comes an apostle, who in his -zeal

this ought lo end the controversy, and
place the democratic party on tlie ever
lasting rock of abjolute free trade,
there with the white garments of the
constitution wrapped around it, that
party would be relieved from portray
