now includes nearly every town in the

under such strong opposition it de
serves to do so. But it can't.
Now we find llichmond, Virginia,
full of aspirations to become a ship
building center. President Trigg, of
the llichmond Locomotive works, se
cured contracts for a million dollar's
worth of torpedo boats and torpedo
boat destroyer,", lie has already or
ganized a $300,000 stock company to
equip a shipbuilding plant in which
to build these vessels, and it is hoped
that it will become the nucleus of, a
great shipbuilding plant capable of
constructing the largest and most
powei ful ships of war and of commerce.
Editor Kosewatkh of The Bee
has been in Washington this week in
the interest of the 1890 Omaha expo
sition fake, and the Washington dis
patches today state that the scheme is
looked upon with favor by the official
at the national capital. The Bee be
ing one of the leading newspapers of
the state aud getting its patronage
largely from the smaller towns it ap
pears to The News that Mr. Rosewa-
ter is making a grave mistake by
booming a project that will take all
the money from the legitimate chan
nels of trade.
The merchants of every town and
city outside of Omaha look with die
favo" on the project for an exposition
at Om ha next year. Now, THE
News will watch with interest the
contest between Dive Mercer and his
hve coheague9 over an appropria
tion that a government exhibit may
be maintained at the secoi d exposi-
ti on. Dave is a good rounder and
stands close to Tom Peed, but the
money proposed to be squandered from
the pockets of Uncle Sam for the bene
fit of Pete Her and bis saloons will bt-
dragon's teeth whose progeny will
arise to curse the man who helped to
send them forth on their mission.
The News trusts the iicoming leg
islature will organize quickly, repeal
a number of obnoxius pop laws, appro
priate sufficient funds to maintain the
st ite institutions properly the coming
two years, pass resolutions requestiug
Smythe to recover funds lost to the
state by defalcations of pop officials,
and especially to require Messrs. Beal
and Mutz to disgorge the thous
sands of state money drawn by them
under the sanction of Holcomb but in
defiance of the constitution, and then
adjourn within sixty days from the
opening day. The people of Nebraska
want a business-like management of
their affairs in contrast to the hypo
critical, hysterical dress parade of Hol
comb, Smythe, Jake Wolf and others.
The people in the interior of the
country are beginning to realize that
their interest is just as great, their
employment just as extensive, and
their prosperity es greatly promoted,
in tho construction of our own ships
with which to do our carrying, as are
the the seaboard cities and people.
Shipbuilding is a national industry,
the benefit accrues to the people in
the. agricultural and mining sections
of the countr3r, as much as they do in
the manufacturing and sea-washed
sections of the nation. And in no na
tional industry is this more easily
demonstrable than in shipbuilding.
The Norsemen who swept all before
them in their conquering and uncon
quered command of the sea, whose
blood still flows through the veins of
the hardy followers of the sea, in all
of the countries that border on the
North Bea and tho Baltic, left their
impress more marked and their chief
characteristic moro pronounced,
among the British Islanders, than
elsewhere, and to this may be attrib
uted the great qualities which have
made Great Britain supreme in the
arena of the world for centuries. Let
us dwell upon these thoughts, while
preparing to in vdo the sea, and to
take our pr per rank am ag the na

I IT A LEGAL IlALLOT? .
Numerous election contests have
been instituted by republican candi
dates defeated in the recent election
by narrow margins in which the va
lidity of tho pictorial ballot is qucs
tioned, says the Omaba Bee. In these
contests it is urged that the ballot law
in force in Nebraska was designed to
give and does give undue advantage
to the candidate who has his nomina
tion certified in the name of two or
Tho official ballot for 1898, while os
tensibly presenting the candidates of
six different parties, in reality con
tained only four tickets, one of them
printed three different times under
three different headings and the bal
lots marked for three pn ties have all
been counted as one. Worse than
this, ballot marked for three tickets
at tho same time have been counted
for the fusion candidates even where,
as in some it stances, one or two of the
columns did not contain all the names
in the other.
That this is emphatically unfair to
the candidate put in nomination by
one political patty is manifest to ev
eryone, but the injustice is inht rent in
the ballot law. VVhi ebuchan odious
s y stent should unquestionably be abol
ished by the legislature, it-t d f cts
a e so giaring that any court would be
fully justified in declaring it invalid
on the grouud thai it denies the right
of every candid te for office to seek
the suffrages of the electors on a
plane of equality with every othercan
didate. Admitting that the present
ballot is essential to tho continuance
of the fusion agreement, the fusion
scheme is such a palpable fraud upon
the voters that it can find no legal
grounds for its defense.
The question whether the present
pictorial ballot is a legal ballot in
volves therefore more than a legal
technicality. It goes to the very root
of popular self-government. It calls
for the most careful investigation in
the light, of all the constitutional
guaranties of untrammelled voting and
government by majorities and an au
thoritative interpretation by the
court of last resort, whose decision
may oe recognized as final on the
A MAl has just been printed by the
state board of labor and industrial
statistics which is one of the most
comprehensive tabulations ever turned
out by the labor bureau. It contains
figures showing the value of commod
ities marketed by each county during
the year 1897. The total value ef the
surplus is shown to be $140,772,494.42.

INFORMATION AND OPINION.
Boards of education in a number of
cities have taken a stand against the
plan of raising money among the
school children for building monu
ments or for other philanthropic pur
poses. The schemes presented be
came so numerous and caused so much
disatisfaction that the authorities fael
they must take this position. No
doubt the pupils and parents will
haartily endorse the 6tand. Aside
from the impropriety of making the
school a contributor to the various ob
jects the taking up of collections is
known to have caused much uneasiness
of mind and even heartburns among
parents and pupils who were not able
to give as liberally as others. It is
time to quit. Beatrice Express.
