Wk publish Mayor Weckbach's dce
linntion in thU issue. There is no
question but the appeals of the IIkk-
ali have had their c fleet upon the
people; an the democratic primarieH
we iiudrotaiil, wre well attended
laiit evening-. There has, we iearn,
b'jeu coiiil.ralle criticism indulged
in against Mayor W eckbacii on ac
count of the management o nlluir
duriiiLT the Miiall ix lilatruo laut
spring for every effort made by the
mayor anl city council lor the abate
ment of the plague, the IIkraI.H has
only hearty commendation; and we be
lieve our people take the same view ot
that matter; however, we think Mayor
Weekbach and hi council do not meet
the endorsment of the people in their
general management of city affairs,
and especially in the civil government
of tha city ; appointments have b&en
made that were not Jit to b made;
and especially upon this branch of our
city administration have severe criti
cism been justly indulged in by the
people. The IIekald hopes both par
ties will make good nominations, for
our city needs good business men in
control of our affairs.
Is discussing the all important ques
tion of good government in our large
centers of population which i fast
becoming' one of the most important
questions to the citizen in this coun
try. The Inter Ocean says:
A recent report, prepared for the
Inter Oeern, and the correctness of
which has not been questioned, con
tained the following statement as to
the percentage of murders to popula
tion in eight cities:
IJrooklyn, one to every 47,214.
Philadelphia, one to every -10.000.
llobton, one to every 36,253.
Chicago, one to every i'3,100.
Xcw York, one to verv
a A jVO
Baltimore, one to every
Cincinnati, one to every 12,7oC.
San Francisco, one to every 8,709.
The first, second and third cities in
the list are under either straight re
publican or republican tizen admin
istrations, while the rest are demo
cratic cities. The average in the liri
class is one to 41,165 of the inhabi
tant; in the second class, one to 13,
468, or in a word, more than three to
omc in favor of Cary iu preference to
Tiik Herald, tho other day, in
speaking of the issue in Chicago be
tween the people and Carter Harris
on's democratic party, being high or
lrr license; mentioned the saloous as
"thousands of drum shops," to which
exception was taken by a good friend
of this papor, who ridiculed the ex
travagant statement of "thousands of
dram shops." We notice tho China
go pa?)cr.s say there are upwards of
four thousand places where liquor is
sold by the drink, and only about
half that number of places where food
can bo obtained. The Iuter-Ocean
says, "the last business directory
gives the number of groceries, mark
ets, and provision stores, as 2,223.
Mayor Harrison's message states that
there are 3.785 licensed saloons, aud
according to the best estimates, there
are at least five hundred places in
Chicago where liquor is sold withou
the formal permission of the city au
thorities." So the IIekald was jierfectlj-justified
iu making the moderate asser
tion of "thousands of dram shops."
Wj i.i.i a m P. Ross, t he preseu t chief
of the Cherokee Indians, is a graduate-of
an eastern college, remarkable
for intelligence and culture, aud a fine
orator. The tribe occupies a reserva
tion of 4,060,000 acres, bounded on
the north and east by Kansas, Mis
souri and Arkansas. The Cherokees
of pure and mixed blood number 20,
336, about one-half of whom speak the
English language, which is the only
one taught in the schools. In the en
tire male population there are but
sixteen whose occupation is given in
the last census as hunters, aud five
fishermen, the majority being farm
ers. There are 407 schools supported
by the nation, a male aud female sem
inary for advanced" pupil, and an or
phan asjlulli. There is a regularly
constituted government, and an ade
quate administration of justice. In
ehert, the Cherokee nation is not to
be distinguished from a frontier state,
except in the character of its inhabi
tants, their relations to the general
jjovernment, and their system of hold
ing the land in common, which af
fords an interesting' examplo of prac
tical communism Ex.
A most remarkable electrical phe
nomenon manifested itself on tire line
of the Union I'achlc railroad last Sun
day, between North Platte and Sidney.
The influence, however, was felt per
ceptibly beyend these points. The
rails were surcharged with a current
of electricity, moving from west te
east, to so high a degree that handcars
standing on the track were impelled
at a fair rate of speed by it. One hand
car at Brule got away from the section
men next east. The influence of the
current was felt by many peusous
along the track, aud no little excite
ment precaileu during its continuance.
Si'Kakixo as the Hkrald has dune
frequently of our ludiau troubles aud
policy, calls to mind the action of
the secretary of the Interior, in rec
ognizing woman's fitness for politi
cal advancement. Secretary Teller
has appointed Mrs. Helen Hunt Jack
sou, of Colorado, as a special agent of
the Interior department, to examine
as to the causes of complaint which
have been made about the manage
ment f the Indians of southern Cali
fornia. Mrs. Hunt Jackson is a vet
eran Indian fighter before the depart
ment, for the rights of the Indian,
and against their abuses and misman
agement, by agents and traders. Sec
retary Teller has, by this act, ac
knowledged woman's titncbs for p6-
litical advancement. There is no
reason why women, competent and
fit, should not be acknowledged in al
most every branch ol the service.
The IIi;i:ai.i says till honor be to
UNE or tno most remarkable inci
dents of the times is the action of the
legislatures of the southern states in
voting pensions to the wounded and
disabled soldiers of the confederacy.
It is an interesting and instructive ex
hibition of the sentiment prevailing
among the southern people, in regard
to the right of the confederate soldier
to reward for suffering and sacrifices
made ou behalf of thesouth during the
war of the rebellion; and unquestion
ably the same sentiment prevails to
wards the citizen who lost his property
by the acts of confiscation by either
army;, and this sentiment upon the
part of the southern people is peculi
arly interesting, when we see the great
state of Tennessee, whoso legislature
has not only roted pensions to the dis
abled confederates, but also to all dis
abled union soldiers of that state who
have not been cared for by tho general
government. This state, in the pres
ence of an almost irretrievable finan
cial disaster, with her treasury plun
dered and robbed by her state treasurer
until she has not a single dollar left
with which to even pay her legislators;
vrith her credit ruined abroad by the
repudiation of her state debt; penni
less and characterless, obligates her
self to pay to her confederate sons an
enormous debt, the extent ef which
cannot be computed at praseut.
If this Is the sentiment of the south
ern people (and who can doubt it after
this action upon the part of Tennessee)
we can well undet stand the motive
and intention of these people in com
pelling their representatives in Con
gress to file their war and pension claims
against tho general government on be
half of the citizens of the south; and
we can well understand what the
demands of the south will be upon the
general government the moment the
democratic party comes into power.
This action upon the part of such a
great state as Tennessee, ought to
weigh more than all the pious dis
claimer 'of any national platform
The democratic party may be able to
frame, and it is not an intemperate or
extravagant statement to say, that it
is reasonable to expect these people
and their representatives will the mo
ment they come in control of the
national government, if it can be
done, saddle all these claims upon the
This condition of public' sentiment
in the south is well worth studying.
It is no idle warning to say that a peo
ple who so devoutly believe in the
rijhts of the confederate soldier to re
ward for suffering and sacrifices made
during the late war on behalf of the
south, will have the courage of their
convictions, nhen they come into the
control of the government, and say for
property destroyed and lives rendered
helpless, the general government
should make restitution.
Speaking of the rights of the minor
ity Iu the parliinentary bodies to play
'"the dog iu the manger" to the detri
ment of public business, and clog the
wheels of legislation until the minority
gets ready to permit the majority to
rule. The Chicago Inter Ocean says,
there is '"horse aeuse," if not parliinent
ary precedent, for the ruling made by
the democratic president of the New
York senate the tther day when he held
that a member actually present counted
in making up a quorum, whether he re
spouded to the roll-call or not. The fil
ibustering practiced, especially iu our
American congress, to practical people
who believe in the majority rule in gov
ernment, is at times a disgrace to any
deliberative lxdy; an evil practice of
which all political ' parties have been
alike guilty, and the IIeuald thinks the
presiding officer of the New York sen
ate has a pretty stood idea of parlimcn
