The things which congress ought to
do are not getting done very fast, as
yet, viz: "reduce the taxes, revise the
tariff, retrench expenditures and cut
off jobbery, reform the civil service,
secure greater acconntability in inter
state corporations, bring forward bet
ter men and measures." If the repub
lican party expects to retain its hold
upon the confidence and affections of
the people it must address itself with
the vigor of earneetness to the practi
cal, every-day, business interests ot
the times, and not rely upon past glo
ries and acquisitions. They were ex
cellent In their way, but the world has
noticed that the man who boasts too
much of his lineage, generally has
little else to recommend himself to
favor, and it is so of a political party.
It was a glorious thing to take up the
cudgel against the extension of human
slavery and drive it out of existence
wheu it threatened to destroy the
government; it was a grand achiev
ment to bring back the "wayward
sisters" to their place in the federal
government, but the party must not
stand idle now, and merely "point
with pride" to the glories of the past,
however brilliant they may be. The
present has its needs, its strong de
mands, and they must be met.
They must be met in a spirit of fair
ness, and in a spirit which means
effective work. The people at the
elections have done all they could to
indicate the road in which they wish
their public servants to travel, and

For the first time in the history of
Nebraska, we believe, the late chief
executive deemed it expedient to rec
ommend any measure looking to the
amelioration of railroad domination
over the business interests of the state.
The same may be said of the chief ex
ecutive of the nation.
It remains to be seen whether the
present public servants (those who
have so recently tnrned front on tbib
question) will give the public some
thing more than lip service. The
public, like any other employer,
knows very well (or tolerably well),
when the public interests are further

public servants are being watched and

January 3d, Gov. Nance delivered
bis message. The opening paragraphs
are devoted to a short review of the
past ; the treasurer's report shows a
balance iu the treasury, Nov. 30, 1880,
of $343,081.G1, receipts from ail sour
ces during the two year ending Nov.
30, 1882, $1.&43,307 04; disbursements

leaving balance ou hand $472,114.50.
A very considerable portion of the
message is devottd to the land de
partment, slate university, normal
school aud other stale institutions.
The message recommends judicious
legislation to subject railroad corpor
ations to proper legal control, without
injustice to I ho people or the rail
roads, and cite. the c-iiiniiHsioner
system of Illinois as having made
satisfactory progrees. As to the state
board of equalization, the message
seeks to justify the action or the board
in not assessing the value of the fran
chises of the railroads, by saying that
there is no provision of statute for
enforcing that requirement of the

The' inaugural address of the new
governor, Mr. Dawes, is in some
points, a little disappointing to ma
chine politicians, but gratifying to
the body of the people. He believes
in encouraging immigration in every
way possible by wite aud liberal edu
cation; that agriculture is the leading
industry ; that the question of text
books in public schools is worthy of
legislating upon; that there should be
ample appropriation made for equip
ping the militia in a thorough and
efficient mauner; that the bogus
patent-rights vendors should be look
ed after; that the accepting of rail
road passes should be prohibited to
certain pnblic officers ; that the rights
of the public as against corporations
should be protected In efficient laws ;
that the members of the legislature
should apply themselves promptly
and vigorously to the work before
them, and assures tuem that iu all
measures calculated to promote the
honor, prosperity aud general welfare
of the state, they will have bis earnest
Let the Legislature get down to
business at once ; elect a United States
senator who is not owned and con
trolled by any monopoly ; pass some
wholesome railroad regulation laws;
provide for their strict enforcement
aud then draw mileage and per diem
and go bomb. It is a sad comment on
the integrity of about half the men
who go to the capital pledged to
Anti-monopoly legislation, that they
ride back and forth on free passes
issued by the railroad companies, but
there is not a well-posted politician
who doubts the existence of such a
state of affairs. The people pay the
fare of such shysters over the railroads
to the capitol iu addition to their reg
ular salary of $3 a day and these pinks
of political perfection pocket the small
amount and accept the tendered
"courtesy" of the corporations. Now,
do these men who do this expect to
go their full length in securing relief
for the people? "No man can serve
two masters." David City Rep.
The gratuitous attempts by the little
man of the Omaha Republican to in
sult the more than seven thousand
voter who proposed in the last cam
paign in the Third district, to no lou
ger submit to the method of the
railroad politicians, will not reach.
The republicans who, iu that couteit,
followed the time-honored precedents
of party usage, and who opposed the
crooked work of some crooked men,
by tho straight work of straight men,
are not to be turned aside by threats
or by coaximr. In any future contest
of like kind they may be counted
upon doing like work, and they will
have the help of enough votera to
bur.l the gang that didn't hesitate to
use forgery iu compassing their de
signs. A Mt. Vernon (O.) special says:
Mrs. Stillniau, the wife of .1. V. Still
man, employed on the C, It. & Q.
railroad, has made a confession ou
her death bed of three murders. She
is at the house of relatives in Knox
county. The first was Beuj. Swigart,
her first husband, who was killed at
Marys ville, Mo., in 1S77, with the aid
of her mother and brother. The sec
ond was a t ranger whom the same
parlies killed for money while stop
ping al a boarding house. The third
was her own daughter, aged 14 whom
she strangled iu the presence of her
mother at Rulo, Nebraska, in. May,
18S0. She has made threu attempts to
kill her present husband, to.--obtain
bis life insurance.
There seems a determined effort on
the part of the real wounded heroes
of the war to look a little more nar
rowly into the claims that have fraud
ulently passed the pension bureau. It
is estimated that there are tens of
thousands of these fraudulent pen
sioners upon the bounty of the gov
ernment. Every claim not based upon
merit detracts so muoh from the
public esteem of tho real sufferer.
The ageut or the applicant guilty of
fraud and perjury iu establishing a
claim, should be very severely pun
ished. The reception given by Gov. Dawes
