the city to-day en route to the bosom
of Lis constituents In the Shroud dis

abolition of our night police, the Her

business men of Main street throw in
and assist them in rigging out a suita

Several of the oldest inhabitants are
confident to-day that there was never
experienced such a drouth before, not
withstanding the terrific shower lat
night. Every saloon in the city i
Kelly, the alleged Phoenix I'ark
murderer, has been twice tried, and
twice the jury have failed to agree,
whereupon the third trial is immedi

subjects a prisoner to a second trial,
There is a movement on foot to
make Senator Joseph E. Brown chair
man of the Democratic Congressional
Committee, and thus side-track the
military politician, llosccrauz, and
the movement is hailed with enthus

"We need it in our business.
"There is a tide in human affairs,
which taken at the flood, etc. That
state of things has reached this com
munity. It L the duty of each busi
ness man of the city and community
to avail themselves of the opportun
ity to forward their and the county's
interests. To become populous to bn
great to be self-sustaining, we must
use our capital in such manner as to
induce other capital to seeK our city,
make other points seek our streets and
shops for our goods and wares. To do
this we should foster home industries
and manufactories, and all other enter
prises which tend to build up and de
velop our country. Let all think of
and act upon this plan.
The Hearld notices many promi
nent legal gentlemen and genial fiiends
and acquaintances from abroad attend

among these gentlemen are Hons. Geo.
W. Covell, T. B. Stevenson, and Albert
S, Cole, of Nebraska City; John M.

J. W. Dewese, of Lincoln, and
others, all of them "hale fellows

interesting statistics regarding the na

Tiik civil service commission have
appointed one Keim, as chief examiner
of the commission. This gentleman
was recommended to the commission
ers by prominent politicians of both
political parties, having the recom
mendation of such mon as Pendleton,
Bayard, and Jones, of Fl&rlda, all
Ignited States senators, and all demo
crats, and al io the recommendation of
republicans like . Logan, Anthony,
Ilawley and Cameron. Since this ap
pointment the commissionaire said to
be very much perturbed on account of
the newspaper criticisms made upon
this appointment, and all because Mr.
Keim is said to be a prominent local
politician from Pennsylvania, and one
of the Cameron school of stalwart.
It is claimed by the commissioners
that they gave Mr. Keim a thorough
examination, and that his qualifica
tions were all that could be asked; also
that his recommendations were first
class. The civil service act was enact
ed to secure the appointment of fit
men us public servants, and to uproot
if possible the pernicious practice se
prevalent among our congressmen and
senators, of jobbing and bartering in
appointments and patronage. In other
other words, the people have experi
enced great difficulty in comprehend
ing just why a man, because he has
happened to be chosen to congress or
elected as a United States Senator
should own and control, his personal
property, all the other offices in his
particular neighborhood- or district.
This tendency upon the part of our
public men to embark in the broker
age business is one of the evil features
of political system, which ha3 become
bo apparent that the public have de
manded a change in the manner of
civil appointments. To illustrate it:
If A waB so fortunate as to be chosen
a member of congress, the common
plebean can see no reason why
he (A) should have the control of
all the small offices in his district, with
power to import his pets and under
strappers, and remove worthy men
from positions over which by rights
he should have no control, and all sira
ply for purpose of his own aggrand
izement. Experience has taught the
observant student of events that the
averago public servant who thus at
tempts to clothe himself with greatei
power than that which naturally be
lonus to him by virtue of his office, is
soon understood and relegated to the
shades of private life.
Hiese civil service commissioners
cannot create a: elysian on earth, but
they can, if they are practical men
and the administration sustains them
properly, do much to point the way to
our law makers by which the service
can be purged of many of the evils
which today degrade it. And the only
sensible thing, in the opinion of the
Herald, is for Mr. Dorman B. Eaton
and his colleagues to go right ahead
and enforce the celebrated Pendleton
law to the very letter, unmindful of
Green B. Baum, commissioner of in
ternal revenue, has resigned; it ap
pears his resignation was a surprise to
both the President and the Secretary
of the Treasury, Judge Folger. Green
B. Baum is a very prominent citizen
of Illinois, and has been commissioner
of internal revenue siuce the days of
Rntherford B. Hayes.
