Next Wednesday' takes place the elec
tion in the city to determine whether we
shall issue $10,000 of city bonds, to ex

$8,000 to aid in 'the construction of a

In certain quartera both these .propo
sitions have been attacked, for special'
rcaoonn, not necessary here to mention.
.'The truth is; in our opinion, that the
waterworks should, at first, have inclu

Of course protection was given at first
to the business portion of the city,which
was proper enough, being that part the

no. 'doubt whatever that, "when "kept

.certainly much more convenient -for
many purposes. Besides, it is as. import-:
ant that the homes of the pro

As to the bridge bonds, no sane man
disp'utos the fact that we need the bridge.
The only question is as to how to get it.

- It is certainly to the interest of every
man who owns property here or does
business of any kind in the city to ex
tend and perfect facilities for transact
ing business with the residents of this
section of the state. No question of
that, and it is .a mere figuring of a slight
expenditure to receive a large addition
to the income a permanent advantage.
A Change of Editors Again.
Of coursethe Hon. John A. McShane
doesn't write for the Herald, but his
swift, persistent and kaleidoscopic
change of editors indicates that he holds
an efFectiveclub over the heads of those
who do write. This being so, we won
der what Editor Calhoun will do after
he has been discharged. The Hon.
John A. McShane is running for govern
or of-Nebraska. He needs every vote he
can get, and about twenty-five thousand
more. Naturally the soldier vote, a
large one in this valorous and patriotic
state, belongs in the main to General
Thayer, McShane's opponent, who -was
renowned in war. McShane was too
young to go to, battle in the early sixties
and had he gone there' is some doubt as
to the side he would have fought upon
therefore the great majority of Nebras
ka's veterans have been with Thayer
from the beginning.
And Mr. Calhoun has settled the re
mainder. In this morning's.Herald, al
luding to the passage by. the Grand
Army at Columbus, O., of a resolution
favoring the granting of a service pen
sion to the union soldiers of the late war
he says: "Without discussing the mer
its of' the resolution -it is pertinent to
ask,.how far is the thing to go? Shall
the old soldiers be allowed to acquire
the whole-earth?'
What'll you do with Calhoun, John?
Yon can't afford to father this insult to
the old soldiers. You can't afford to
lose every soldier vote in -Nebraska.
YouTl have to discharge Calhoun and
get the next editor to apologize for you.
When we pause and reflect, we're very
sorry for John. We cant imagine where
hell find Calhoun's successor. There
aren't many newspaper writers lying
around loose in Nebraska who will sac
rifiice themselves by writing democratic
editorials, and when you look for those
who will add the sacrifice of personality
to that of politics and play the stool
pigeon to the Herald's owner, the num
ber dwindles to something that looks
like the minus sign in an .algebra prob
lem. We are also -sorry for Calhoun. He
has scarcely- warmed the chair. Oma

Occasionally a southern politician
under stress of excitement blurts out
the real truth about things. Such a one
is uapt. js. K. Tillman 01 JSdgeneia, B.
G, who spoke in Charleston a few days'
ago. The News and Courier, in its xe-
portof the meeting, says:
He said he had organized a company
in 1876 at a little town in Edgefield,
-where there were 200 white men and 600
niggers, "odds," he added, "that you
never had down here." lie described
the militia riots, the Ned Tennant epi
sode, and other incidents, calling atten
tion to the fact that in 1876 the hox at
Shaw's Mill, in Edgefield county, which
nad Deiore poiiea l.uuu raaicai majoniy,
went democratic. -He next read editor
ials from the News and Courier condemn
ing the Hamburg killing as a horrible
crime. "As I. stand here," he said, "I
believe, before Almighty God, that but
for that Hamburg riot Chamberlain
would have "been governor of South Car
olina and the state as safe today for the
republicans as Vermont or Massachu
setts. I proclaim it loud that I was one
of the Hamburg rioters who dared even
the devil to save the state."
Even the democratic News and Cour
ier is constrained to say that "Capt.
Tultnan boasts he is a. redhanded mur
derer of defenseless negro prisoners at
Hamburg." Democratic newspapers
never tire of shouting "bloody shirt''
when republicans denounce outrages on
the blacks, and of denying that they are
deprived of their right of suffrage; and.
yet -here is a leading democrat who
makes the public announcement that
South Carolina would have been repub- -
lican to this day but for butchery and

In noticing "Mr. Harrison's letter11 re
cently, Mr. Morrissey shows that he has
read 'American history, and remembers'
the in,cident when a beaten British gen
eral was compelled to send a communi
cation to General Washington, which he
addressed; to. "Mr. Washington, com
manding forces.'' General Washington
declined to receive 'any communication
not 'addressed to him properly as "Gen
eral Washington," Commander-in-Cnief
of the Continental Army," and the proud
Briton,- who had intended a slur, was
'compelled to. be. respectful." Mr. Mor
'risBey forgot' the latter part of the inci
dent. Benjamin Harrison fairly earned
the rank, of general by four years' bril
liant service in the civil war, and accord
ing to the polite custom of the country,
the title is everywhere and at all times
conceded to hinx-Omaha World. -

Lateb reports from the south up to

fever is slowly spreading all over the
south. Southern cities generally are
panic-striken and citizens fleeing. The
authorities at Memphis, Tenn., have con

go into effect immediately. At New

ARepablicaa Mas Meeting.
A republican mass meeting was held
at Cooper union on the 18th which filled
the large hall to overflowing. Hon.
Warner Miller, who was the principal
speaker, declared that the present free
trade agitation was a movement for the
revival of the doctrine of states sover
eignty. He declared that the democracy
had been a free trade party since Van
Bnren's time.

American money should be spent at

Delegation!- Pay Their Respects to
the Repablicaa NoMiaee.
Indianapolis, Sept 19. Gen. Harri
son's entire time today was occupied by
visiting delegations, the presence of. so
many old soldiers in the city holding
their reunions during the continuance of
the state fair adding to his callers. To
day the veterans of the 8eventh Indiana
cavalry called on him, and to them he
made a short speech. In the afternoon
he addressed a. delegation from Iroquois
county, Hliuois, and one from La Porto
county, Indiana, the two assembling to
gether at the park. The speech On this
occasion was the most important pf the
day. In the course of his remarks the
general said:
You have not once, I think, in the
campaign, heard any democratic speaker
admit that even a low protective tariff
was desirable. Those who, like Mr. Ran
dall, have in former campaigns been
used to allay the apprehension of our
working people by talking protection,
have been silenced. On the other hand,
the republican party declares by its
platform and by its speakers that a pro
tective tariff is wise and necessary.
There is the issue. Make your awn
choice. If you approve by your votes
the doctrine that a protective tariff is
public robbery, you 'will expect your
representatives to stop this public rob
bery, and if they are faithful to you they
will do it not 7 per cent, but all of
it Applause and cries of "that's so.
So that I beg you all to recollect that
you will vote this fall for or against the
principle of protection. You are invited
to a feast of happiness. Yon are prom
ised foreign made goods at Tery low
prices, and domestic competing goods, if
any are made, at the same low rates.
But do not forget that the spectre of
lower wages will also -attend the feast
iADDlause. and cries of "that's so.1 In
evitable, as certain as the night follows
the day, the adoption of this policy
means lower wages. Choose, then, but
do not forget that this cheapening pro
cess may be pushed so far as to involve
the cheapeninsr of human life and the
loss of human happiness. Applause.
Referring to the surplus he said the
democrats did not know what to do with
it and therefore deposited it in certain
national banks. The government gets
no interest oh it, but it is loaned out to
citizens at interest If this surplus be
used to purchase bonds with, it would
restore it to the channels of trade.
Continuing, he said: "It is not whether
we will merely raise money to buy our
bonds at a premium; no one would
advise that, but will we -so use a surplus
that we have on hand and cannot law
fully pay out in any other way? Do our
democratic friends propose to give the
banks the free use of it till our bonds
mature, or do -they' propose to reduce
our annual income below our annual ex
penditures by a revision of the tariff
until this surplus is used, and then re-
vise the tariff again to restore the equi
librium?" TGreat applause.1
The .Thirteenth and Second Indiana
veterans also called on the general, and
with them, as on such occasions, shook
hands with every one. The crowds were
large and enthusiastic.
'A Short Talk to Werkiagawa.
There is only one country in Europe
in which the wages of labor are within a
half of what they are in this country.
That is Great Britain.
Wages in Germany, France, Belgium
and Switzerlan'd -are not one-third of
what they are here. Those of Italy are
not one-quarter.
One duty of govergment is to protect
the labor of its citizens. Last year
cheap foreign labor was imported into
the United States in the shape of manu
factured goods .to the' value of $09219,
768. This was a. great wrong on Ameri
can labor. In that immense amount of
imports, permitted by our insufficient
and defective tariff, the labor of women
employed in the Manchester, England,
cotton nulls, whose wages do not average
$60 a year, came into competition with
the higher priced 'labor of our southern
and northern cotton spinners. In that
mass of imports was the labor of Ger-1
man factory workmen averaging less I
than wllo a year, and inat of women
averaging less than $50 a year.
Munich is a gallery and centre of art.

bor, at prices that should fill sensitive
souls with horror. "andAlarm the thought

The the cotton factories ot Naples

skilled laborers receive as high as $1 a

America from such wages!

Waaalagtea Letter.
From oar regular correspondent.
Senator Sherman made a few remarks'
in the senate on Friday that started the
tongues of all the politicians wagging,
-and they are stijl going at a fearful
rate. He said that the committee on
finance would report a republican tariff
bill designed to protect and further
American industries as airainst the free
trade Mills tariff which was intended to,
and did, weaken many industries of the
country; that the bill reported would be
a careful revision of the tariff laws and
of the internal revenue laws; it would
give to the men engaged in the arts the
use of alcohol untaxed and would
sweep away the tobacco tax, giving that
great agricultural product fair and free
play in this country, but the committee
would take its. time about it If the
house of representatives wished to pro
long the session until the tariff bill was
reported it would have to wait until the
committee was ready to report After
having taken months in preparation and
passage of a tariff bill it did not rest
with the democrats to charge the repub
licans with delay. He asserted that the
repuDUcans would not be numed in
preparing a bill; that they intended to
take all the time they deem necessary
for the framing a bill; they did not care
how much time it might require: it
might aa well be understood that this
was the -republican fiat. Mr. Sherman
then intimated that the bill 'might not
be reported until after the presidential
election, in order that the wishes of the
people might be known. Should the
people vote for free trade by the re
election of Cleveland, then it would be
well to give them such a dose aa the
Mub bfll,- bat ahoald protection be
maintained then perhaps the democrats
would be willing to accept the republi
can bill. As the speech of Mr. Hbarrnsn
was the firat official intimation that the
republican tariff bill might not be re
ported matil after the election, it creat-1
ed a genuine sensitiOB in congress,
What effect will it have on the peadiaa
campaign was asked right and left by
Republicans, and after fully, discussing,
the matter the conclusion was generally
reaehed,that it would hive no effect at
all; the tariff policy of 'the republican
party isso well known that no tariff bill
in detail is needed to define it What
effect this decision will "have on adjourn-
meat cannot be said just- now, but that
it will hasten that 'event cannot be
doubted,.unlees'the democrats by their
ioousn acuons snau maxe tne question
one of politics. ' . .
. The administration is becoming des
perate in its-effort to make votes . for
Cleveland. The 'latest-isran attempt to
bull-doze- the few republican clerks in
the departments into using their in
fluence for Cleveland. The prac"als"of
the. various departments here, have made
lists containin-g the names of the "repub
lican clerks, and the clerks have been in
formed that unless Cleveland is elected
they will be discharged. It is hoped by
this means to oompel the- republican
clerks to use their influence in their re
spective states to get votes .for-Cleveland.

oiana is parucutariy sireng.

ed entirely of foreigners, and which con
trols the production of every. copper
mine in the United States.. ..'"'
The bill amending- the interstate com
merce law. was -passed by the house'
without a division.,
Cleveland sent for Secretary Whitney
to return to this city for the purpose of
having him deny the story that had been
printed of his intended retirement from
the cabinet on occount of his disgust at
Cleveland's free trade ideas. After much
persuasion Mr. Whitney- agreed to an
nounce in 'a public interview that he
would remain secretary of the' navy un
til the 4th of March. But -he qualified
it by saying .that it was much against
his inclination that he remained.
The Canadian retaliation bill which
was railroaded through the house is now
in the hands of the senate committee on
foreign affairs, and it will hot be at all
surprising if it remains the rest -of
the session. There is a growing
feeling that it is entirely unnecessary.
