Senator Tiiton's reasons for

Nothing very definite has reach
ed us, eo far, from the Oregon elec
tion. The report that Grover, the
Democratic candidate for Governor,
is elected, needs confirmation. The
Independents have carried several
counties, but it will probably require
offlcial returns before the result of
State ticket can bo positively an
nounced. The effort of the Council Bluffs
claimants to pass the bill compel
ling the U. P. railroad to operate
their road to Spoon, Lake through
the lower house'of Congress, under
a suspension of the rules, proved a
most ignominious failure. The bill
is shelved for the present session,
and that virtually puts it beyond a
resurrection.
Accokdino to the public debt
fctatement just published, the de
cereaso of the National debt during
the month of 3Iay was nearly four
millions and a half. That speaks
well for the economy of the Admin

that a decrease of public taxation
would be preferable just now to a
decrease of the public debt
Cor- Noteware will have to
look to his laurels. Colorado has
heard about his forty thousand Rus

Valley. Thej have recently issued

that Indian scares are over and

It Is a neatly printed pamphlet,
covering sixty-five pages, devoted
chiefly to a classification of the in

As will be seen by our Washing
ton dispatches, General Thayer has
made an able argument in behaJiLa?
Omaha, as the initial jxAit of the
Union Pacific, beforethe Senate
-Taciflc ItaAVsMdf Committee. No
body is better qualified for such a
task than General Thayer. His
familiarity with the Union Pacific
Charter, and the fact that the
amendments to that document, and
the U. P. bridge bill, was enacted
while he was a member of the Sen
ate Pacific Railroad Committee,
give him peculiar advantages in
this respect; and we apprehend
that Omaha appreciates these ser
vices in her behalf.
Tally one more for Moses. We
mean, of course, Moses of South
Carolina, who has won another
bloodless victory by his Mosaic stra
tegy. It appears his trial for grand
larceny was set for last Friday at
Orangeburg. The trial did not,
however, come off for the reason
that Moses found it more convenient
to be absent The Solicitor for the
State asked for a warrant of arrest,
but the Court refused It The coun
sel for Moses then moved to strike
the case from the docketf on the
ground that the Governor cannot
be indicted and tried for any crime
before impeachment The Court
reserved its declsion,and postponed
he case till the next court, whlcK
meete in October. This is regarded
pt a substantial triumph for Moses.
POLICE XSF0HX.
Witev William P. Snowden en
tered upon the discharge of his ofli- I
cial duties as City Marsnai oi umu
ha, he assured the public that he
proposed to inaugurate radical re
form through our entire police sys
tem. So far the Bee fails to observe
nnv-tbinc verv radical or very re
formatory in this important branch
of the public service.
It is true the Marshal has issued
a bombastic and long-winded set of
rules for the government of the po
lice rce. but these rules can hardly
be ot practical service as long as the
old plunder and blackmail system
is countenanced and kept up by the
Marshal himself.
Nobodv knows better than
Marshal Snowden that the
employment of a constable to serve
writs from the Police Courtis simply
an ingenious evasion of the letter
and spirit of the charter, me
framers of the charter expressly
prohibited the Marshal and Police
from collecting any fees for tne ar
rests of violators of the ordinances,
nr for testifvinir in the Police Court.
This was done to protect innocent
parties from imposition oy greeuy
policemen who would frequently
make indiscriminate arrests for the
sole purpose of pocketing the fees.
This wholesome provision has be
come a dead letter, because the
Marshal places his favorite constable
into tho Polioe Court, instead of de
tailing a police officer for this duty.
The constable Is under no restraints
from the charter, and hence he finds
some rich pickingin the Police Court.
We have already denounced this
practice, and must again repeat that
it is an imposition which should no
longer be tolerated. And now lot ub
say a few words about the Omaha
social evil system, which wo have
good reason to believe has done
more to corrupt and demoralize our
police force than any other known
agency. It has all tho worst features
of the license system without any
of its redeeming qualities.
While prostitution is treated as a
crime its habitual votaries are made
to do penance by regular monthly
fines. These fines were originally
intended as contributions to the
publlo school fund, but practic
ally the greater portion has been
systematically appropriated by
a confederate spy, who receives his
authority through the Marshal, and
plays the part of informer and of
ficer. Thss is by no means the
worst feature. The system Is tho
source of unblushing frauds both
upon the city and the social evil
viotims. These frauds are perpe
trated under cover of the law, and
money is extorted which never sees
the City Treasury. Other transac
tions of a most scandalous char
acter have been reported to us, which
cannot but have a very demoraliz
ing tendency on our police force.
Of these these the Marshal who has
been in the service several years
can hardly be ignorant.
P. S. Since writing this article,
we have received a communication,
touching this subject, from Judge
Wilbur. This communication will
be found in our local coulmns. While
it corrects some errors in our esti
mate of the amounts collected by the
Police Court from the social evilists,
it does not materially alter the fact
that the employment of a go-between
to attend to this class of offenders
by the Marshal affords a great scope
for swindling and blaokmalllng.
Parties who claim to be posted de
clare that there are not less than
two hundred women in Omaha to
day that would properly come un
der the social evil ordinance. While
they do not all live in public houses
they could be readily fereted out by
an efficient officer. Out of this
number, according to the Judge's
showing, only forty-nine were re
turned by the Marshal. Did the
others escape because they were not
known ? and how niany have been
induced to make private settle
ment without the knowledge of the
Marshal?
An able article against the pro
posed reduction of the army appears
in the New York World. The fol
lowing extract is deemed worthy of
reproducti m :

no more cheering to contemplate

We need cheaper fuel and faster

Directors certainly do not compre
hend the wants of the people along
its line or they would make provi
sion to remedy this great evil. It
is to their interest as much as to
any one's, and more. They have
millions of acres of land for sale ana
the sooner it is sold the better.
Then they would be free from taxa
tion, comparatively, and instead of
the lands being an expense to them,
the accruing payments would be an
income to them. Again : The bet
ter settled the State is, the more
work there will be for the Railroad,
and local freight will increase in
proportion to the number of Inhabi
tants eaoh county along its line em
braces. It would thus make busi
ness for the Company and increase
the value of their lands, and what
they would lose by freighting coal
at half the present figures, would be
returned tenfold in other ways.

AN IMPORTANT SUIT.
The State of Nebraska after John
I. Blair & Co. Valuable
Property Under
Contest.
(Wet Tolnt republican.)
On last Saturday Attorney Gen
eral J. E. Webster filed a petition
in the district court of Uuining
county, asking for the reoovery of
all lands in tho county, or their
value if transferred, ceded by the
State of Nebraska to the S. C. & P.
Railroad Company for building the
"plug" road from Desota to Blair,
in Washington county. Suits vpUri
:il-j ho pommpiinwl in Hin cavrfitino
of Burt, Washington, triid Dodge,
for the recoveryoJKLe same lands
amountiiiKffall to 48,000 acres,
whicu-st52.o0 an acre, would foot
20.000. The petition prays for
the recoverj' of all their lands
still in possession of the railroad
company or "stockholders, and for
the recover of the value of all said
lands which have passed into the
hands of innocent and disinterested
purchasers.
These lands it will be remembered
were donated and deeded to the
I ail road Company in question, un
der the provisions of an act of the
legislature passed in ISO", entitled,
"An act to donate seventy-five sec
tions of the public lands of the State
to the Northern Nebraska R. R., to
aid in the construction of a railroad
from Desoto, in Washington county,
to Fremont, in Dodge county!"
This act specified the time at which
the road should be completed and
operated, in order to entitle the
company to the laud'. The North
ern Nebraska R. 11. Company, as is
well known, upon completion of the
"plug" from Desoto to Blair, con
solidated with the S. C. & P. Com
pany, or claimed so to do. The S.
C. & P. R. R. Compaii3', after build
ing its road to Fremont, claimed the
lands under the provisions of the
act cited, and succeeded in getting
a ueea oi mem.
The petition of the Attorney Gen
eral in behalf of the State, avers
that the road was not completed by
the time specified by the act under
which the lands were ceded, that the
Northern Nebraska Railroad Com
pany was not organized in conform
ity with the laws of the State, and
that it was not lawfully consolida
ted with the S. C. & P. R. R. Co., in
consequence ot which the lands
were not legally transferWd to such
Company.
The case Is a very important one,
and contains sevcrul fine points
which will, without doubt, be ably
argued by the best legal talent of
of tho West, and will be contested
inch by inch to the very end.
The case of the State of Nebras
ka against J. I. Blair and others, for
the recovery of the lands, or their
value, deeded to the stockholders
of the Sioux City and Pacific Rail
road, promises to be one of great In
terest, and if the result is favorable
to the State it will be beneficial to
the counties of Dodge, Washington,
Burt and Cuming, in which the
lands are located. It would throw
several thousand acres of excellent
land in the market at low rates,
and thus bring many settlers with
in the counties named.
A summons was served on John
I. Blair as he passed down the road,
by Sheriff Frey. The summons
was issued in the case of the State
of Nebraska against John I. Blair,
et al., to recover the lands or their
value, deeded defendants by the
State.
