Here is the outlook taken by the
Chicago Tribune concerning the oper
ation of the Slocuaib high license law.
The license money will defray the
whole police expenses of cities and
leave considerable money for other
nunicipal purposes; drunkenness will
largely be reduced, and the liquor bus
iness will be place- on a far more or
derly and less injurious basis than it
ver has been before.
Stocks have seriously fallen in

County, or at least enough of them,
thought he was worthy to represent
them in the legislature, and Mr. Patf
terson was a member of -one-of the
most important legislatures that ever
satin the state, viz: during ths win
ter of the Butler impeachment trial.
It seems that Mr. Patterson, and in
fact Mr. J. N. Wise, too, were elected
to the Council of Nebraska before
that; in 'G2, but the session was never
called together, and they, like Mar
quette and others, whom the muta
tions of new constitutions and changed
laws have left at times, have now
only the remembrance of the fact thai
they were elected anyway. "
' Four years ago, Mr. -Patterson was
elected County Treasurer, and for
about the samH time ' has been City
Treasurer, as well. .These marks of
confidence from the people of so strong
a Republican County, in us t be highly
gratifying, for he is, we are sorry to
say, for so good a man, an outrageous
old fashioned Democrat; not a Bour

in Cass County, and the Herald has
mentioned some little poiuts in his
career several times before, perhaps
enough for a beginning. He should
have taken the place two yars ago.

CONUKLSSMAX VALENTINE.. H IS
said, has introduced'' a bill to except
Nebraska from beimi districted, con
gies.sionaljy.' provided such t ;i -bill
pass-s this winter. That is, we Vould
eitel i.'ie number of congressmen any
new apportionment gave to us from
the statH at large. " .. Wo have been
rather favorable . to an election at
large the first time, .because it would
avoid the necessity of calling the leg
islature together, because our State is
improving and growing so rapidly, and
such changes are taking place popula
tionally that any district apportion
ment made this w inter would be only
a temporary affair at best, Andjheie
seemed to be no satisfactory sub-tli-visions
of f he territory possible last
winter. ' With ' the building of ', new
linos of railroad, and the increase and
re-adjustment of population this
brings, a more satisfactory apport-ioli-ii
ut of districts could be made 'in the
futue thau at present. . '
. Lastly, we hoped Nebraska could
get better men -it the start as a whole
than in districts, for e observed that
every petty wire-puller, every scrub
editor that hoped to bum himself into
an office, every lawyer too lazy to ri3e
in his profession, -and just able to live
off the toil of others, was in favor of
districting the state, at once; and
would have had Governor Nance pet
the Legislative mob together before
this if he took their itdvice. ,
BuL we w j.sh to say to Congressman
Valentin i that a bill making Ne
braska the sole exception; or except
ing on the ground of the people's de
sire to have it s, will . be a j 'mistake.
It is at once, tot upon by all the
screamers for purity ami denounced
;;3 a tjcrsonal measure to facilitate the
electiuu of ' uU sup.oocJ )ii;'opaI
friends, and vould leaiiy do more
harm than good if passed.
If all the states that do not hold
legislatures regulaily this winter were
excepted it might do, but to" make one
fitste an excejiion is open to grave
suspicion. : . . -
