ilr. Morse was local manrgor of the

with Mr.

period of more than seven yem
afforded ample opportunity for form-
jug a correct estimate of his character :

the legitimate tribute to sterling in

THE Brc is emphatically opposed
io the cnt.p resolution rushed through
the last meeting of the city council
authorizing J. Sterling Morton to
prosecute on behalf of the city of
Omaha i claim for monies expended
in erecting a territorial capitol , and
giving him , if successful , one-half the [
amount secured aa payment for his
services. The ground upon which
the claim is made , is the assurance of
Governor Izard in 1857 that if the
people of our city would contribute
some § 50,000 towards completing the '
capitol building , the amount would _ be
refunded by the government. That
amount , at C per cent interest , up to
the p-o ent time , aggregates nearly
$150,000 , and one-half of this sum it
is proposed to give to a professional
lobbyist to secure Its allowance at the
present session of congress.
This lucrative scheme of Mr. Mbr-
tonV reminds us of the swamp land
business in which Governor Jarnas
and Tom Kennard were interested
some years ago. It will bo remem
bered that the legislature oE 1873
passed an.ct authorising tha governor
to appoint an agent who should collect
from the general government monies ,
duo the eta to on account of over-
fljwed swamp lands. These monies
judged by the sumo received by other
states fcr tha same claimswould have
amounted to over $1,000,000. In 1874
a fewdaya before retiring from office
Governor Furnas made a contract
with Tom Kennard of Lincoln and ap
pointed him agent to prosecute the
swamp land claim , agreeing to give
him on behalf of the state * if hie
efforts were successful , fifty per cent
of the amount allowed by the general
government. This contract vrai de
nounced by the Omaha Herald a * an
infamous swindle and J. Sterling
Morton shrieked loudly against the
i contumation of suah an outrageous
steal frm the pockets of Nebraska
tix payers , when we had a congre-
atonal delegation entirely competent
to prosecute any claim of the state at
Washington. The Serall and Mr.
Morton insinuated in no doubtful
language that the whole business was
a jjb of the worst water , put up bc-
I tween Gov. Furnas and Torn Ken'
' nard with a view of dividing tbe
profits. Subsequent legislatures have
several times attempted to repeal the
swamp land act , but without success.
And now the city council of Omaha
jumpS into n similar contract with J.
Stirling Morton , involving practically
the came commission for collecting a
claim of our city against the general
govojnraent. If this claim of Omaha
is just and valid , as wa have no rea
son to doubt Uiit it is , why can't it
b3 prosecuted by , our regular con
gressional delegation , whoso duty it
is to transact such business ? We
have two senators from Omah" ,
and a congressman who formerly
lived here. If they fail in obtaining
recognition of this claim of our city
what reason have we to expect that
Stsilihg McrJon will bo more success
ful. On the other hand , if the claim
is dishonest , needing R lubrication , of
congressmen for its passage , the people
ple of Omiha don't want to make
themselves parties to any such trans
action. As far aa the monetary con
sideration ii concerned , it is perfectly
outrageous. If Mr. Morton succeeds
in getting it through on the grounds
of congressional influence and personal -
sonal magnetism in a democratic con-
gress , it seems to us that S5OCO is too
much for a few wetka' lobbying in and
around Wahington.

The Decline ot Sectionalism.
Et. Panl Tionecr l'res.
The election af Garfield promises to
form an epoch as notable in the po
litical history of the country as the
election of Hayes. They may hope
to share tha honor of exorcising trio
specter of sectionalism and of de
stroying the most perilous issues that
have divided parties and sections.
Hayes becan the destruction of the
solid south by encouraging a roadi-
nees on the part of the north to for
get tha bitterness of the past and join
the south in a fraternil spirit in the
discussion of now issues and living
questions. Garfield's election will
complete the work of teaching the
south that its only hope of regaining
the confidence of the country and en
joying a fair shsro of political power
is to forget old issues and old bitter
ness on its own tide , eccept the results
of the war , and meet the north in the
same spirit of mutual concession
and tolerance which the latter
has learned from the past experience
to entertain. It is true that the
south ha never been so solid as in the
laM election. It is true that the lines
of sectionalism wera never so sharply
drawn. . The whole south is upon one
tide. The whole north , with the ex
ception of two or three insignificant ;
states , is upon the later. If this con
dition of things werp to be permanent ,
it would be raosc disastrous , and tbe
practical outlook would be meet
gloomy. But it cinnot ba permanent.
The very completeness of the separa
tion of the sections will tend to rapidly
disintegrate that which has nothing
to gain and all to lose
by the perpetuation of the
division. The spectacle of a solid
north teaclcs the south the folly and
hopelessness of continuing to cherish
the principles and expectations vhich
make it solid. The touth , as & sep
arate part of the nation , unsupported
by public sentiment in the north , and.
with all the rest of the nation consoli
dated against it , is an entirely power
less and insignificant factor in the na-
tional government. Tha result of the
laat election teaches the south thai
this condition of things will ba mainGl
talned EO long as it cherishes the prinis
ciples which the rest of the nation has
condemned , and which it has declared
Bhall never control the administration
of tha uovernment.
It was necessary that this lessen
should ' be sharply , taught. A solid
north was necetsiry toteafih theutter
irapotcnca and futilitv of a solid south
The south needed to laarn that a south
solid upoa the issnes pronounced -upon
by the wkr was certain to ba faced by
a solid north. They needed to learn
that the north is the strongest , and
that ' such a division would be a ? fatal
to them in the field ofpolitical conflict
as upon the field of battle. The
election of Garfield by the vote of
nearly every northern state should
mike this leason sink deeply into
their hearts. It should teach them
that , while the north is ready to forrr
get old conflicts and consolidate with
the south into a homaogeneous nation
broken up into ptrties whose division
liaes shall not follow geographical
boundaries , it Is not ready to give up
the results of past conflicts and lay
the foundation for their renewal by
permitting even a tacit recognition of
principles which are hateful to the
great majoritv * > f the people of the
country. Tha south misunderstood
the spirit of conciliation which was
displayed in the early days of Hayes'
administration. They jumped to the
conclusion th t their friend ? ) the old
etitcs rights democrats , Were upon the
eve of acquTing power in the north ;
that the republicanswera ready in
despair of lo ger retaining control of
the government , to surrender tha
fruits of the war and tamely /consent
to the return of the south to its old
position of arrogant dictation. The
action of - the southern leaders
in congress and their declare
tions during the presidential
canvass were the evil fruits of that
error. The congressional elections of
1878 gave the south the firat hint of
their fatal error. The leason was
finally driven home by the result of
tbe presidential election. This taught
the south that there is one condition
upon which the confidence of the na
tion in the intentions and motives of
its leaders can bo restored ; and that
is that the results of the war shall ba
tccepted in good faith ; the old dream
of state sovereignity and southern
autocracy 'dismissed ; the authority of
tha nation and tha rule of the majority -
t. jority recogui2ed , and a hearty will- ,
iiicneas shown to forget the past and
i live in the present.
' If the south shall learn this lessonj
and there is plenty of evidence in the
comments of tha sovtHiorn p-ess upon
the election that its meaning has not
I I been lost upon them , the greatest
j peril to the perpetuity and stability of
our political institutions will , ba re *
moved. The bitterness of tbe war
will bo forgotten in the removal of its
worn-out issues from the held of po
litical discussion , and the demon of
sectionalism will be banished with the
dismissal of the questions upon which
the sections have been divided. The
south is solid only upon the questions
which were involved in and should
have been settled by the war. It is
divided , like the other sections , in its
opinions upon the finances , the tariff ,
revenue legislation , and the other
fiscal and economic questions
which are the most important matters
of legislnti'-ri in a nation whose poli
tics are in a healthy condition When
the south gives up the idea of realiz
ing the false ideas of government to
whr > aa propagation it has devoted all
its energies for a hilf century , and
t-ivoa its attention to thsso questions
it has so blindly neglected , its un
wholesome sclrJjty will disappear end
the healthy notion and reaction of .
more or less equally divided political
pirties will take its place. Tbe same
thing will occur at the north. The
only thing thr.i keeps the north solid
is the fear olr. solid south. "Wh-sn
the oppressive ; catmint of this fear ia
removed , the uorih will be only too
glad to split ui into parties upon the
tariff and rotcuuo questions , which
affect its diverse interests so differ
ently. Happily not one of
the many no IT questions which
are pressing upon theantention of the
parties are sectional questions. The
tariff used tc be a sectional issue , but
with the new diversity of interests
that has j rown up in the south since
tbe war ; with the growth of textile
manufactures and the uugar produc
tion , that section haa ceased to be a
unit in the advocacy of free trade ,
while a strong sentiment is growing
up in the northwest. There is noth-
tug sectional in the financial queRtion.
Too line of division boiwean the two
great parties of the future will follow
neither state or sectional boundaries ,
but will range through the whole
intellectual field of diverse opinions.
Both the solid south and the solid
north will disappear aud give place tea
a homogeneous nation , divided upon
general questions into healthy politi
cal parties.
There is a good dfcilof vain and un
meaning discussion sa ; o whether the
coming charge will involve a recon
struction of parties cader new names.
It is wholly immato : il whether we
have new parties under new names ,
new parties under t"-o old names , or
the old parties with niw issue * . -As a
matter of probability , the republican
and democratic pirtios will not be
formally disbanded within the life of
any man now arrived at mature years.
The important thing is that the
sectional issues that have divided
these parties for twenty years will now
disappear through tLo definite and
recognised triumph of the principles
represented by the republican party ,
and that both parties have to seek new
issues upon the living principles.
Tne Canada Pacific.
The Toronto Globe claims to have
obtained trustworthy" information , at
last , as to the terms of the contract
with the Canada Pacific railway syndi
cate. It states that the line is to be '
divided into three sections , for the
construction of which payments 1CD
money made by the government will
vary according to the cost of the work.
For tbe first section , from NipUsing '
to Thun'der bay , north of Lake Super 'Sr
ior , about six hundred miles , the
government grant will be $12,000,000
and 12.000,000 acres of land. For )
the second section , from the Bed
river to the Rocky mountains , about
1000 miles , it will be § 6,400,000 and
5,000,000 acres. For the third sec
tion , in British Columbia , about 400
mile * , it will bo 56,600,000 and 8-
000,000 acres. In all , $25,000,000
and 25,000,000 acres.
From this statement it appears that
the two terminal sections , together
about the same length as the inter
vening section , will cost the govern
ment nearly three times &s much
money and exactly four times as much
land. To give the figures , the
terminal secttoni will cost § 18,600,000
and 20,000.000 acres , and the inter
vening sections will cost § 6,400,000
and 5,000,040 acre . Thia is a sen
sible arrangement , if any arrangement ,
for the construction of n railroad at
the public expense and giving it away
to a corporation can properly be * [
called sensible. It is not quite reasonable
enable to pay as much for that which
costs little as for that which costs
much , or to give as much of that land
which is likely to bo worth 5 an acre
ss of that which fa likely to ba worth
no more than 31 an aero , if it
worth anything at a L This T
last remark mrut not ba understood
aa implying that the Canadian authorities - /
ities , tiara taken care to regulate their
grant according to the quality of the
land , for such is not the case. The
Globa says that tha whole of the land
is to ba taken from the fertile belt of
the northwest. This Is better for the
syndicate than the American p'an of
granting alternate sections along tha
whole length of the line , giving the
companies tha bad with tha good ,
The Globa estimates the average value
of the land granted at $2 p r acre. At
this price the value of the whole grant
in money and land ia 335,000,000 , or
$ 60.000 C per mile for the Lake Superior
section , $16,400,000 or $16,400 per
mile for the middle section , and $23m
600,000 ( nr 556,500 par mile for the
British Columbia section. _
The Dominion parliament has yet
tc ratify tnis syndicate bargain , and
the oppoaition papers strongly advo
cate : its rejection. The probability is
that the bargain will ba ratified. It
will be brought forward as a govern
ment measure , and its rejection would
rasult iu an appeal to the people. The
majority of the present parliament is
in general harmony with the ministry ,
and will ba pretty sure to sustain its
action in this matter rather than go
to < the people and hare their "national
policy" of protection overthrown.

having lived eightv-one years. The
fourth in < fe wns Yan Buren , who.
born in 1782 , died In 1862 , aged
eighty. Taking the average lives oi.
the presidents , it ii found to be a little
less than seventy'two years. At what
