IT was all right for Dr. Miller to
run a partnership concern with Hitch
cock , and for J. Sterling Morton to
support Paddock , but the moment an
honest democrat expresses his gratifi
cation over General VauWyck'a elec
tion it howls long and loudly. The
democracy of tie Herald la of a re
markable type. It wanted Valentine
elected to congress BO badly that it
didn't have a nominee for congress
until his defeat was overwhelmingly
certain , and then failed to support the
party nominee. The Herald had no
democratic candidate for U. 8. sen
z.tor , and staked all its hope ! on the
cast of the Paddock dice. Dr.
Miller and his organ dceorvo the rep
robation of all honest-minded demo
cratsi i. sheet which pretends to be
n party organ , but which uses it's influence
fluenco solely in the interests of rail
road jobberi and professional lob
bylsts , irrespective of party affilia
tions , deserves to live on quack medicine
cine advertising and the profits of a
railroad job office.
WE don't want to be captious , but
it is very singular that the Douglas
county delegation haven't improved
their vacation to come to some under
standing jwith their constituents and
among themselves about the new char
ter. It would be extremely disastrous
to our city to have the legislature ad
journ without passing some amendments
monts to our charter which would en-
sMi us to follow up the completion of
the water works with a system of aew-
era. Another very important and
snuoh needed reform is the proposed
chingo in the election of councilmon.
Omaha has had some very costly experience
porionce in leaving the choice of coun
oilmen to tvard bummers and irrespon
Bible and incorapstont blatherskites
who simply want to be in the council
to further their own personal ends.
Our educational law needs amending
in many ways t.ud the delegation from
Douglas county ought to go down to
Lincoln a unit on thesa proposed
amendments. If they do not they
might as well resign. If they can't
procurejfor Omaha the needed legisla
tion their usefulness will ba seriously
Now that the Nebraska members of
the legislature have had an opportuni
ty to consult their constituents , dur
ing the interval since the senatorial
election , most of them have doubtless
discovered that every man who
shirks hie sworn duty to
ca-ry out the constitutional
prjvisloni that require legislation to
prevent diccrimination and other
abuses by railway and other transportation -
portation oompaniei , is doomed to po
litical death. All the pleas of rail

the state of WIsconilii and in Illinois ,
where they have laws that prohibit

whore there is no law.

Somewhat over one hundred years
the British cabinet were called npon
to deal with the question of revolt in
the American colonies. The colonists ,
with no thought of separating from
British rale , were londly de-
minding reform in the tax laws and
seemed bent npon resisting the au
thority of the crown until substantial
relief wss afforded and the principle of
no taxation without representation
was affirmed by the British parliam _ t.
Tne British cabinet with ono accord
insisted that the first duty of the gov
ernment was to restore law and order
to Maasachuetts and that it was be
neath the dignity oi the crown to take
milters of constitutional reform under
consideration before maintaining the
iignity of the insulted , laws in the
: olonies across the water. "Coercion
drat , reform afterwards , " was the
cry caught up by the cabinet and
echoed in the halls of parliament.
The war of the revolution ensued and
Vmerican independence was the re
The British ministry of 1881
are face to face with the problem of
1775. Common sense and the exper
ience of the past would seem to die
tate the only policy whick can bo
parsued with any hop a of success. It
ii plain that the temper of those who
a hundred years ago were bent on ob
taiuing redress for grevous wren B
is the temper of the Irish
tenants of to-day. It seems
equally clear that the temper of thos
who , in 1775 , were determined to restore -
store law and order in Massachusetts
before they would consider the qnei
tion of American taxation , is identi
cal with that of these who to-day are
clamoring for coercion in Ireland in
the hope of smothering by the iron
h&nd of arbitrary law , the voice c ,
popular discontent. Mr. Gladstone's
cabinet are not united upon the egan
of "Coercion buforo Reform. " But ,
unfortunately for the cabinet , they an
hampered on all sides by pirty fac
tions and tory opposition. Mr. Par
nell described the situation with bit
ter acuteness a few weeks ago : " ]
wish to warn yon , " Mr. Parnel
said to an audience at Watcrford ,
Cl not to expect too much of the pros
eat parliament. J Wi3 a very careful
observer of tha event ] of last session ,
when Mr. Gladstone was trying to
pics a miserable little bill of ono
clause , called the compensation for
disturbance bill ; and I said then that
he had no ; the forcaa behind jiirn to
carry any measure of real value to
this country. He has got in the first
place to contend with the whig terri
tonal influence in his cabinet before he
even drafts his bill , and so from tht >
very start any bill that lie brings for
ward must be a compromise with the [
great whigs of England and the Irish
land owners. If ho brings it into the
house of coinmona ho finds hiniscl
face to face with a determined and |
powerful tory obstructive party , and
the whig * in his party he Is scarcely
sure of for twenty-four hours to-
gather. Consequently , to secure the
passage of his inception , ho has to
agree to still further compromises
aud when at length his bill struggles
in the honse of lords , if he hopes to .
cirry it through , it must be at the
price of still further compromise
thero. "
TUB description was faultlessly
truthful. The liberal ministry would
without doubt fall , were coercion as a
measure of the first importance aban
doned to give way to a .stringent and
just land bill. They will assuredly i
fail in passing at the present session
any measure of land reform which
wil afford lasting relief to the Irirh
tenantry. The combined opposition
of party factions and landlord influ
ence will be amply sufficient to kill any
remedial legislation which aims to.
reach the root of the disease of land-1
lord tyranny. This is the quandary of
the British cabinet. Their coercion
cannot coerce , and their reform will
fail to reform. Between the two
stools of a just policy and a compro
mising attitude towards their enemies
they have signally failed. Wanting
in the moral courage to boldly advor
cate tae right whatever the conseE
vuence to cabinet or party , they proh
sent a spectacle at once ridiculous and

nif I Ti : .
The new Unitprl States senator
from Nebraska , VanWyck , is not
withont a record , though it was ac-
qaired not in Nebraska , but in New
York. He is a native of Sullivan
county , in that state , and before the
war was well known in the Hudson
river counties aa a lawyer of marked
ability. Ho practiced law in Middle-
town and Newburgh , having for a
partner In the latter place ex-Judge
Fnllerton , now of the city cf New
"OharlU" VanWyck , under which
familiar [ title he was best known to
the farmers , business men , boysj and
everybody else la that cactSon , was
elected to concrcsi m 1858 , and reelected -
elected ia I860. In common with
I Ben Wade , Tfmd. Stevens and Bur-
Hnggame , of Massachusetts , he was a
slclwart of the stalwarts on the slav
ery question , and manifested
A disposition to back up
his words with his acts.
Daring the exciting eejiion of congress
gross which preceded the breaking out
of the war , numerous exceptions were
taken by southern members to his vig
. orous denunciations of "tho institu
I tion , " and threats of paraonal violence
were freely made.
Lite ono night , while passing along
street near the capitol , he was
I who , as they bounced ous on him , in
formed him that in consequence of hia
comprehensive abuse of slavery , they
were about to "do for him" in first-
class plantation style.
At that time ' Charlie" was in his
prime , broad across his shoulders ,

o fo r moments after putting up
hands for business the southern gen
11i tlemen wore looking for the last ditch.
From i that time on ho was very rigid
ly 1 let alone.
In the summer of 18G1 ho raised a
regiment which > rent into the field as
the 66th New York' , hut was better
known by the title of the "Tenth lo
gion. " The legion was composed of
ten companies of infantry , two of cav
r.lry , and two batteries of artillery. It
was incorporated into the army of the
Potomac as a regiment in its entirety ,
but was soon shorn of its cavalry and
artillery appendages.
The cavalry companies were the uu
clous arouid which were gathered the

vfsr. The artillery companies were
afterwards designated as the 7th and
8h N-iW York independent bittcries.
. . The5GUi , with its commander , Col.
Tan Wywk , participated in McClel-
lan'a 1 ; peninsular campalun. Col. Van
VP Wyck waa slightly wounded by a
piece of shell. After the bittle of
17 Antietam the command was ordered
to the south , and Col. Van Wyck was
decorated with the straps and buttons
of a brigadier
In the spring of 18C2 when McClel-
lan's army lay in Iront of Yorktown ,
Van Wyck , while in command of the
New York volunteer infantry
ment , was also a representative in the
house of representatives from ono of
the western New York districts. Al
though in uniform he was still the
homo citisan , colicltoas for the welfare
faro of his many neighbors in his own
regiment nnd other military organiza
tions from his section of tha country.
One dark , rainy night , just before
"tapa" had Bounded ] he happened to
atop into a battery park , and a prirate
soldier who recogmjiud him requested
him to frank a letter. The franking
privilege was lh n not limited as it
now ia. "Certainly , " replied
the citizen soldier and con-
creEsman. "I'll cit up sll night to
frank | letters for soldiers " Tne dec
laration j wai scarcely uttered baforo
it i ; paaad from soldier to soldier , and [
than from camp to camp. Soldiers |
from every direction brought their }
letters to Col. Van Wyck to frank.
The colontl unceremoniously seated
himself iu a sutler's tent and went to
work. Tint sutler's supply of envel
opes rapidly disappeared , and when
reveille sounded In tha morning the
colonel was still sitting on his campstool -
stool , with a hard-tack bax , which ho
had improvised as a table , before him ,
franking ' letters for "tho boys. " In
many a homestead in central Now

brought the messsgo from the eoldler

It was during the Peninsula cam
paign , just before the battle of Wil-
liamsbarg , that Gen. McClclIan had
issued an order forbidding foraging

A section of artillery and been sup
ported by the 56th New York volun

in the evening , and , owing lo some
misunderstanding , the infantry nnd
artillery were left on the picket Hue
till a late hour , withont any rations.
Darkness had closed in , and a
farm-yard in the vicinity offered
too great temptation for the
hungry artillerymen to resist. Soon the
fragrant aroma of roast pig drew more

Frank Hiscook , member of congress
from the Twenty-fifth New York dis
trict , is a candidate for the speaker-
ship. Ho has been classed as an
antl-Conkling republican. In order
to sccnre the united support of the
republican delegation from New

Conkling'a faror. Hincock's first ad

ling was one of the moat important
of to-day s incidents at Washington.
Hiscock called on the senator in the

the visitor with more th'an his usual

point at once , frankly saying ho did
not believe ho could succeed without

is thu fact that I am a republican a
stalwart republican , if you please.
There is no milk and water business
here ; no sniveling hypocrisy or .selfish
cant. To all loyal rapubliosnb I am a
friend. To insipid , make-believo re
publicans , who make an endless pre
tense of being superior to their wicked
associates , I am a sworn , unshrinking ,
tireless enemy. "
Mr. Hiscock took this lecture very
quietly , and then asked what sort of
pledge Mr. Oonkling would require of
him to satisfy him upon the question
of personal loyalty , Mr. Conkling
replied , in
It is a subject that will take some
time for mo to consider. I cm free to
say that I like you. You have never ,
to ray knowledge , played sneak or hy
pocrite ; but , by God , if yon wore my
father or my brother , 1 would want to
know in advance exactly how you
stood upon one or two vital things be
fore you could hav9 my support. I
tell you , sir , it is a matter far beyond
any person * ! feeling. I should want you
to be able to satisfy me that you're loyal
to the stalwart element of the Repub
lican party , and that you have no sym-
patny with the treacherous , traitor
ous , mendacious , hypocritical con
spirators who are now seeking to betray -
tray tha coming president Into a con
temptible disregard of the men who
made him to-day all he is. By God ,
sir ! ( said Mr. Conkling with Increased
fire and energy ) there is going to be in
the future a square line of action
drawn. The men who carried the last
campaign on their shoulders and secured -
cured the hard-earned victory are men
who will not be overlooked. The same
power * , h it made can again undo. So
when you coma to mo to ask me for
my support , yon must first be certain
where you stand at the present time ,
as well as for the future. L-jyal ,
stalwart republicans do not propose to
allow the cunning , sneaking , hypo-
crital , feather headed Ohio brook of
milk-and-water men to rule. We
have submitted quietly , believing that
relief would como in the natural order
of things.
Conkling's talk to Mr. Hizcook waa
plainly understood by the latter to be
a demand for hia personal allegance to
Oonkling , even to the extant of fight
ing the coming administration If his
leader shonld so direct. Tnore is little -
tlo doubt that he will accept the con
ditions , and through his now alliance
he straightway becomes one of the
moat , formidable of the contestants
for the spcakerahip of the nexthonao.
Smoking ia injurious. A Toronto
man was fiilled by falling on the stem
of hia ptuo.
We find that the only true way to
preach the golden rule is to practice
it ; at least such seems to be tha way
of Rev. Mr. F. M. Winburne , pastor
M. M. church , South Mexia , Texas ,
who writes as follows : Several months
since i I received a supply of St. Jacoba
Oil. ( Retaining two b ttlcs , I dis
tributed I the rest among my friends.
It ] is a most excellent remedy for
pains j and aches of various kinds , es
