THE adoption o pneuimitic post
al tubes in the larger cities o the
country , as recommended by the
postmaster general , ought to re
ceive the attention of congress. It
is believed that the introduction
of these tubes would greatly en
hance the economy , convenience
and efficiency of the postal service ,
and if the experience of European
capitals is of any value the be
lief is vrell founded. It is an im
provement clearly in the line of
progress and there is no good rea
son for delaying its adaption.
THE proposition of Mr. Butler
to change the national flag by ar
ranging the stars in the blue field
in such a way as to represent a
white pansy , is unique ; but it is
foolish. "Old Glory" may not fill
the esthetic recesses of sensitive
souls like that of Mr. Butler , but
for the ordinary plug of a patriot ,
who is willing to fight , bleed and
die for the honor and glory of the
flag , it satisfies as nothing else
can do. If Mr. Butler wants a
new flag he might adopt one for
himself : but the country still
clings to the stars and stripes , and
long may they wave !
THE clergymen who are saying
Gould was a thief could have
given proof of their courage had
they said so before he died. It
doesn't take much of a man to say
that a dead lion wore false teeth
but the accusation is seldom made
against the live animal. The
ministers are doubtless well mean
ing , but they have got into the
bad way of waiting until after a
man dies and then calling him al'
manner of good things or al
manner of bad things. It woulc
take a great deal of courage to say
as ranch either way about a live
man , but it might do some good.
THE supreme court has rendered
a decision in the Clay county con
test case which fully sustains the
views expressed by the Bee re
garding the right of the judiciary
to determine who is and who is
not entitled to a seat in the legis
lature. By declining to act in the
premises the court practically
denies its own jurisdiction , thus
clearly defining the boundary
between the judicial and legisla
tive branches of the government.
"When the Clay county contesl
reaches the legislature that body
may find upon investigation thai
the certificates have been wrongly
issued , but that fact is to be de
termined onlv bv the house in
which the contestants claim seats.
THE charge of wholesale poison
ing made against the labor organ
ization at Homestead , Pa. , that
controls the Carnegie mills strik
ers , is of so serious a nature that
public opinion should wait for the
evidence. The American people
will not beliere that such an
atrocious spirit pervades any set
of respectable workingnieu in the
republic. It is to be hoped that
the charges will not be sustained.
If they are , however , found to be
true , there will be a reaction
against the wickedness that will
be powerful enough to crush out
the spirit of murder and insurrec
tion as effectually as in the case of
the anarchists of the Haymarket
in Chicago a few years since.
CHICAGO socialists do not take
kindly to the recent gift of a mil
lion and a half by P. H. Armour
for the endowment of a great in
dustrial institute. At a meeting
of the new Question club , which
is composed chiefly of socialistic
agitators , Armour was soundly
berated as a robber and no better
than Jesse James. One of the
speakers before the club declared
that Armour steals , lawfully and
upon a magnificent scale , and has
become a millionaire merchant
prince , but his benefactions will
principally benefit the rich , since
the poor cannot avail themselves
of his college. This may in part
be true. But there are hundreds
of wage workers who desire to im
prove , to acquire a higher indus
trial education , and will avail
themselves of the institute and
cannot fail to profit by it Mr.
Armour's methods of cornering
pork cannot be commended , but
that fact does not militate against
his deeds cf beneficence for the
education of the working people
in mechanical arts. Bee.
NEBRASKA'S legislature will con
vene on Tuesday , January 3d , and

CALIIOUX of the Lincoln Herald
agrees not to publish all the slush
and bosh of the next legislative
session ; but promises on honor to
artistically skin and pickle a few
legislators as the days go by.
THE Bee boldly takes the bull
by the horns and asserts that the
local Nebraska railroad rates must
be reduced ; placing the line be
tween moderate exaction and high
way robbery at the Missouri river.
THE first annual meeting of the
Nebraska State League of Local
Loan and Building Associations
was in every respect a success ,
and the discusion of various topics
of interest to the members will
greatly promote the purposes of
the organization. The building
and loan associations of this state
have done a great deal toward
enabling the wage workers to pro
vide themselves with homes , and
their influence in encouraging the
accumulation of money by people
Avhose incomes are small is a pub
lic as well as a private benefit. It
adds to the wealth of the slate
and stimulates the development
of its resources. Organization is
always a source of power , and the
state league seems to be doing a
great deal for the permanent suc
cess of the loan association system.
THE whisky trust is gradually
raising the price of alcohol and
whisky and has actually bought
up a great portion of the two ar
ticles on the market that it had
previously sold to its customers.
There is no concealment of its
plans. It thinks it has a sinch on
the democratic congress and the
next president , and that it will be
able , after it gets control of all
the whisky in the country , to get
them to advance the tax on whisky
from 90 cents to $1.50 per gallon.
Ihis would bring them a snug
profit on all the whisky in exist
ence at the time of the passage of
the bill. They expect that the
new law will except from the tax
the whisky now in bond. There
are billions in it , and the trust
can well afford to divide liberally
with the congress if it is found
THE democr atic press with one
accord pretend to find President
Harrison's message full of sarcasm
and bitterness. And yet it is one
of the most genial and comforting
documents that was ever sent out
from the White house. It brims
over with patriotism and good
feeling. It congratulates the coun
try on its greatness and gives
stacks of figures to show that it is
prosperous and ought to be proud
and pleased to find itself in such
good condition. But because he
said that the people having con
cluded to change the policy of the
administration , it would be well
for the present congress to cease
monkeying with the tariff and
leave the matter co the new congress
which had been elected for that
purpose , the democrats claim to be
hurt by the sarcasm. That must
depend upon how they take them
selves. If they have no faith in
their own platform and are not
willing to do Avhat they said they
wanted to do with so much energy
and eloquence before the 8th of
November , the president's sugges
tion that they are going to do it is
very sarcastic indeed. If they re
ally mean to carry out their pledg
es the president's assumption that
: hey will , is the highest compli
ment that could be paid to the de
mocracy. Whether there was sar
casm in the message depends eii-
irely on the outcome of the demo
cratic party's wrestle with its
promises in the Chicago platform.
They give themselves away before
hand , when they admit that it is
sarcasm now. Journal.

" Castoria is the best remedy for children of
