The city printing was awank-il this
paper last night by the City Council.
The Nkk.vi.d bid being ahnot one half
lower than the bid of the Journal upon
nil classes of ;n"utiii cxcojt city print
ing upon this cla-s jf work the Hull
AMi bid was twenty cents per square for
the first insertion niul ten cents per
square for each subsequent insertion,
bting lower than the Journal bid. The
Herald competed for this work ex
pecting if its bid was the lowest it
would receive this printing, if not the
lowest it did not expect it. The IlKltALD
expected Councilinoij eutjotV, Hons
and i'auersoii wonjd treat lh b
of tin - ..clCStS
. just exactly as these gentle
men arc known to attend to their own
private a flairs. Yet the voted last even
ing to let the city printing to iw liiyJiest
bidder, and this in the face of the fact
that they as Councilman had by resolu
tion agreed to give this work to the
lowest bidder. The IIi:iiai.d cans
nothing about this matter further than
to express its surprise that these ;entle
men would pursue this course when the
City Council had asked for bids, and in
the face of the fact that the lowest bid
der could go riht into Court and com
pel the city to let it have this work.
The 1 1 KKAi.i) believes these gentlemen
must have been misled in the course
they pursued in this matter ; otherwise
they certainly have a strange conception
of their duties as members of the city
government. The Herald's bidding
for this work was simply a matter of
business, and we certainly had a right
to expect the gentlemen selected as
guardians of the city intercsls would
treat the matter in the same liffht.
PUT AWAY YOUR PISTOL.
A peaceable citizen, skilled wcrkman
and kind husband and father dead; a
wife, a stranger in a strange land, a
widow; seven children, the oldest 11
years of age, orphaned and in need; an
other man, of good reputation, but im
pulsive and quick tempered, a murderer;
a second woman, a murderer's wife; and
ail because of the damnable pistol habit.
This is the story of yesterday morning's
killing. If there had been no pistol
there would have been no death. Ien
do not take life in noisy fracases on late
streetcars when they arc unarmed. The
hot headed person at whose hands an
other's blood wiil be required on ac
count of yesterday's affray, "killed be
cause he had a pistol handy, just as
scores of others have killed before him.
The pistol habit is as wicked as it is
senseless. Xo respectable persons, ex
cept cllicers of the law, need to carry
pistols habitually. The man who goes
armed presumably expects to commit
crime, or provoke a qu arrel. If, how
ever, he really thinks the weapon nec
essary for his protection, he is a fool
instead of a knave. There are many
chances to one that, instead of keeping
an assailant at bay, he will wound or
kill himself or sonie innocent person.

THE CZAR CROWNED.
The Coronation of the Czar of all the
It'issians was fully consummated yester
day. The C.ir's Crown dates of Emperor
Paul the First. Valued at 3,000,000
rouble. The manifesto issued by his
Supreme highness on this occasion Is
indicative of more liberality towards his
subjects. Pardon upon certain condi
tions is granted the Poles, remission of
penalties for certain ofleuces, a goueral
tone of clemency pervades l lie entire
mauilesto. A tendering of. the ''Olive

The Chicago newspapers are loud in
their denunciation of Rev. Joseph
Cook, principally because the Rev
Cook sees fit to criticise Chicago .Jour
nalism. This is a common failing of
the journalism of thid d;y. and age.
Tho average newspaper wants all criti
cism on its own side of the house.
The Chicago News calls Mr. Cook
"sensational and improper;" also
" nameles-," among ministers.
Inter-Ocean: "Wrong headed ;" "not
unlike a dog sniffing and growling
about empty woodchuck holes, and
baiking furiously at shadows."
Chicago Herald, speaking about Mr.
Cook's criticism, says : Mt is an un
manly, unfair and unchristianlike way
to get even." ,
Times compares him to Ingersoll,
and says, he "goes round the world
culling the ravishing dollar, and ele
vating the human family wherever it
will consent to bo elevated at Cook. 'g

If the Rev. Joseph can keep even
with the Chicago papers he will do.
The Minden folks were so incensed
against the supreme court for granting
a stay of execution in the Simmerman
hanging bee that they hung the su
premo court in efligy. Globe Demo
crat. The foregoing is a fair sample of the
manner in which many of our Ne
braska newspapers have not only done
the Supreme Court of this State if
great injury, but the State itself, by
advertising it as a safe asylum for the
SrEAKixa of ex-Senator Conkling's
quickness of mind during a debate,
John F.Smyth said recently: "Mr.
Conkling was equally swift of mind
in replying to those who were rash
enough to question him at political
meetings. I remember that when he
was a young man he was once inter
rupted during a speech at Utica by a
fellow who bawled out: "Do you
want me to marry -a black wench?"
Conkling pretented not to hear the re
mark distinctly, and said with great
politeness of manner: " "Will the gen
tleman who asked me a question have
the kindness to come forward and re
peat it?" -The Republicans who were
present cried out: "Turn him out,
turn him out." "Oh, no, don't turn
him out: I'm sure the gentleman
asked some question which deserves a
reply; let him come forward," said
Conkling. So they pushed the fellow
forward to the middle of the hall,
where he puffed out his chest and said
defiantly: "Do you want me to marry
a black woman?" Conkling looked
the man all over carefully for about
three minutes. It was so silent you
could have heard a pin drop. Then he
said with a drawl: "Do I want you
to marry a black womau ? Xo, I can't
say that I do I have too much com
passion for the black woman." Ex.
Apropos of the frenzied demands by
Mr, Henri Watterton, of the Courier
Journal, that the great national demo
cratic partv should declare fr "tariff
for revenue only." the action ot the
recent democratic state convention ir
Kentucky, upon this question, is both
instructive and amusing. In the fust
place, the com mittee on resolutions ta
bled a resolution, carefully prepared,
which committed that convention
squarely to Mr. Wat tei sou's pet hobby,
and attempted to placate him . and his
friends by declaring that it, (the con
vention) accepted the creeds of the na
tional platforms of 1876 and 1880 on
this question, which of course, means
" little or more as the patient can stand
it;'' but the Evening Post, a democratic
newspaper of Louisville, lets "the cat
out of the bag," sho.wing the view the
the committee on resolutions, which
framed the platform for this conven
tion to adopt, look of the practicability
of a square toed declaration by their
party in Kentucky upon this question.
The Post says the resolution prepared
by Mr. Wattersou, was "sat down on"
by the committee, although. Mr. Wat
terson had wired the country, through
the Associated Press, that the conven
tion would adopt his resolution. In ad
dition to this, the Post says, although
the democracy have a clean majority,
in the Louisville district of some five
or six thousand, and although their con
gressman is yery popular, he would
be" defeated in that district upon' such a
platform; that the committee on reso
lutions well know this, and that this tar
iff tor revenue only" resolution was
thrown out for this reason. These are
pointers ot great significance, and show
that men in Kentucky, and at Mr. "Wat
terson's own home, bis party dare not
expose his pet hobby for fear of do
a tTaxsas man. Mr,
J. 15. Watkins
purcna?e seems to havo been from the
state, and embraces something over
1,000,000 acres of real estate located in
the parishes of Cameron, Calcasitn
and Vermillion. It appears that this
land is subject to total overflow, and
the Kansas man proposes to reclaim it
at once from tho action of the sea and
piace it unuer cultivation, liie price
he paid for it is not mentioned, lMit tho
"dicker" may be put down as a "right
smart trade" in real estate.
An ex-broker of this city who .re
moved to a town in Indiana received a
call from a local pastor with a view of
having him join a certain churn.
"I take it that you are a professed
Christian?" queried the pastor.
"Well, no," was the reply.
"Indeed! What business have yon
followed in life"
"I have been a broker,"
"Ah! I see,' said the clergyman, a 1
he reached for his hat.
;,IJuMh0y Allied me out of every
.ir I had!" protested the broker.
"Oh, they did eh ? Well, that makes
a difference, of course!" was the reply,
as the good man resumed his scat to
continue the conversation. Wall
It needs only a casual glance at the
republican papers to discover that the
differences which one jear ago appear
ed certain to rend the party in twain
are rapidly disappearing and that the
organization is getting into excellent
condition for the national campaign
of next year. Tnis does not result
from a mere suppression of quarrels
for the sake of keeping the party in
power. but from a profound conviction
among the thinking and intelligent
classes that have stood by the party in
past time that the country is safer un
der republican than under democratic
rule. The insincerity of democratic
promises and all the alliances of the
party with the worst element in the
population of the country has been
conspicuously shown during the last
few months, and it has strengthened
sensibly the prejudices against trusting
the government to its charge. There
has been no disposition in the republi
can papers to cover up the sins of the
party or to suppress criticisms on its
errors. The frank confession that it
had done wrong and had submitted to
unwise leadership has aided largely in
reinstating it in the confidence of the
people. They want sincerity and not
chicanery, and if the republican party
can prove that it is sincere it will con
tinue to administer the government.
If not, the people will look elsewhere.
That is all there is about it. Chicago
