interest in political circles.

will act upon the Bee's suggestion
to amend the fire limit ordinance,
o as to compel all parties desirous
of building within the limit to take
out a building permit
According to the Hastings

Bumipulators is to be held at Kear

Senator Gwer has suddenly
become alarmed lest the rejection
of New Mexico should ultimately
cheat Nebraska out of her contin
gent Congressmen. The cases are,
however, not at all parallel. In the
ee instance the Eastern and Mid
dle States simply want to prevent
the admission upon a perfect equali
ty, in the .U. .S. Senate of a Terri
tory that is now at least forty thous
and ,belowlhe quota of representa
tloii;wlth no immediate or even re
mote prospects of an increase. The
beat evidence that this is really the

New' Mexico passed the
Houae by ni' o thirds ma

The foulest spot in our Municipal
administration is the prevalent
management, or rather mismanage
ment, of prostitution. This rotten
system has been the source of the
moat degrading corruption and un
blushing venality. It has de
graded our city marshals and
demoralized their subordinates.
It haa become a festering sore on
the body municipal which we believe
demands fearless cauterization, if we
wish to restore our police force to
fficteBcy and respectability. A
plain ftatement of facts will, we
apprehend, convince any unpreju
diced "mind that a radical change is
absolutely demanded. Like all
cities, Omaha contains a certain
number of women who live by pros
titution. Their number has, we are
informed, varied from seventy-five
to one Jraadred and fifty. At pres
ent their number might be put
down at the minimum figures.
Under our city charter, (Sec. 3) the
City Council is empowered to re
jtoln, prohibit and suppress tippling
afcops,! hensea. of prostitution, and
other disorderly houses and prac
tices. "Oh s provision of the
Charter, an oni'aance, (Capter JO, j
Bevised Ordinances v framed.
Th first section of this
ordinance ' makes the keep
ing -,olJ. or connection with
aajeax.srderly houses or houses of
prostitution a misdemeanor for
which upon conviction any person
or peraona'naay be fined in any sum,
not exceesjfaig $50, and they also
may be imprisoned for not exceed
ThaaMavd section makes it the
duty f the City Marshal to report

Wlanlrmr may have been the in
tentTon (toe -fcMaers of this ordi
naBoe,kc peealiar method which.
for Mvifje years, haa been pursued
by the iMetB of , the law has opened
the way '.Jar the most barefaced
frauds MfaVhigh-handed rascality.
Instead 'fit making these arrests per
sonally, cHyl marshals have con
trived to delegate the power to un
wawrupaaaHB confederates who
have converted this prosti
iction santera into system of
downright imposition ''and black
mail. Several years ago the noto
rious "Frenchy" occupied the lucra
tive post of spyand blackmailer,
and since then others have played
thy-rets. Thia; we understand, is
JW the jttiee to-day. Althoagh
Marshal Snowden receive? an in
come of eighteen hundred dollars
per annum, a sum fully sufScient to
maintain him respectably, he
delegates the duty prescribed by the
.ordinance to a favorite constable
and the result is about as follows :
Each Inmate of public houses is
compelled to pay $7.90 to the Police
Court. Of this amount the school
fund receives $3.00, the Police
Judge $2.80 and the informer $2.10.
If the Marshal performed his duty
personally no charges for the arrest
or complaint could be made and
therefore the $2.10 aro virtually
stolen from the school fund, or the
person that pays the fine. Now it
is plain that the ordinance intended
this monthly system of fines to be a
round about license system, why
should the marshal's substitute be
permitted to rob the school fund of
from $100 to $150 per month? This is,
however, not the worst feature.
Under this system, money is fre
quently oxtorted from these women
without arrest, and no returns aro
In such instances the black-mailing
police spy pockets both the
fines and costs. These rapacious
hawks arc tolerated right under the
4Ose of the police judge. It has
even been rumored that our city
Marshals have, since the introduc
tion of this system secretly connived
at these nefarious practices and have
habitually divided the spoils with
their confidential confederates.
While wo bavo no means of
Jcnowlng whether this system of
division still prevails, we have not
a particle of doubt that it did pre
vail m times past. The fact that
two policemen have within the past
week forced their way into a room
occupied by courtesans, and levied
upon them without due process of
law, is sufficient evidence of the
demoralizing rottenness of this sys
tem. Now what we demand is a re
vision, of the ordinance so as to pro
hibit and prevent this imposition
In the future. If tho Marshal cam
not find time to report tho
names and number of this class let
him depute policemen to do so in
Under no circumstances should
the Marshal, or any police officer be
permitted to compromise or collect
fines, but in every case the money
should be paid directly to the police
court. Other reforms should be in
augurated, of whloh wp intend to

The Heratjj's JIsiiTAToits. A
week or two ago Mr. Sidney Dillon
jurived in Omaha. The editor of
the Herald was absent at the time.
The Bee and Republican greeted
him with sickening praises. A day
or two afterwards, and the moment
we reached the city, this paper
opened its plain talk with Mr. Dil
lon, about those Union Paojfio im
provements. A sudden change of
tune was opened by the boss con
cern in this line of business over
the way, and the JJeeand the Union
peepea in chorus. Sunday Herald.
Another outburst of buchu journ
alism. The Bee is not In tho habit
of greeting anybody with sickening
praises, and therefore it made no
exception in favor of Mr. Sidney
The Bee generally does Its own
thinking, and is never afraid to talk
plain about matters of public con
cern, whenever occasion demands.
Instead of v-aiting for tho Herald to
Den its oracular mouth, the Bee
greeted 2lT: DUlon with die follow
ing sentiments :
PresidentDillon and several mem
bers of the Union Pacific directory
are now in our midst Their pres
ence will, we hope, afford to the
citizens of Omaha an opportunity
to impress upon them the incalcula
ble damage which has been, and is
now being inflicted upon this city,
by reason of the non-fulfillment on
the part of the Union Pacific of cer
tain contract stipulations touching
depot building and railway head
quarters. Omaha has never wavered in her
friendship to the Union Pacific. She
has never sought to evade her con
tract obligotlons, and she has a right
to expect that the company will
also make good their pledges
Had these pledges been promptly
fulfilled, we can safely assert that
Omaha would to-day have contained
not less than forty thousand people.
We do not profess that these results
would have been accompnsnea oy
the mere expenditure of $200,000 or
more in railway buildings; but we
do claim that the 'vascillating
policy pursued by Mr. Dillon's pre
decessors in power has discouraged
public and private enterprises, and
driven back thousands of industri
ous men with muscle and capital,
who would otherwise have located
in our midst.
We are constrained to make this
statement because we owe it to our
selves, and to the people of Omaha,
as a citizen and a journalist We do
this with the kindest feelings to
ward Mr. Dillon, and tho other offi
cers of the Company. Our appeal to
them in behalf of Omaha is also an
appeal in behalf of the Union Paclfic
The prosperity of Omaha must nec
essarily add to tne prosperity of the
Union Pacific A large city built at
the terminus of the road, must ine
vitably increase and improve the
Where there are such mutual in
terests there should also be harmoni
ous co-operation. Omana has acted
her part with commendable liber
ality, and now it remains for the
Union Pacific reciprocate. Presi
dent Dillon enjoys the reputation of
being a man of broad, generous and
.liberal views. As the chief execu
tive of the Union Pacific he is in a
position that empowers him to put
the unfulfilled pledges of hlaprede
cessors into practical execution."
This, article appeared on the edi
torial page of the Bee, on Thursday,
May 21st The Herald's so-called
plain talk appeared on the Sunday
following, or just four days later.
WeNdId not charge the Herald with
being an imitator of the Bee, nor
did we intimate that it peeped in its
chorus. We would remind the
Herald that the day has gone
by when recklessness and egotism
can be palmed off as raciness and
enterprise in an intelligent commu
nity like ours.
