SUPPRESSING POJJLIO SENTI
The baneful influence of railway
corporations in Nubiaska politics is
not merely felt in the foisting of
mediocre and corrupt men as ntato
ofllccrs and congrcsomon , but in the
suppression of public sentiment on
the living issues of thu day and ea
pucially the transportation question.
In almost every convention the rail
road politicians mnna u to have ono of
their cappers placed in the chair and
by his aid they pack the committees
and throiujh them suppiess every
demand of thu public for a redress of
oMstitu ; abuse ? .
Hi * yonrd ao a republican state con
vcntioii mot at Lincoln , 'don , A'an
\Vyck , then n doloRato from Oton
county , moved the appointment of a
committee on resolutionswith instruc
tions that they report thu platform
before candidates were ) put in nomina
tion , The chair ruled the motion out
) f order , but some hours later , just
joforo the convention began ballotting
'or fltato oflicor.i , a committee on rcs-
ilutions wan appointed with a rail-
oad capper as chairman. After tlio
convention had concluded all its labors
md only Homo party delegates re-
nainod , a platform of platitudes , pro-
tared in Union Pacific headquarters ,
was handed up and unanimously
adopted as the expression of the con
vention , when in fact oven the com-
nittec on resolutions had not been in
vited to consider them. Three years
ago the editor of THE BEE
ntroducod a series of resolutions do-
louncing the extortions of the Union
'acillc bridge monopoly in the state
convention. They wcro reported
> ack by the platfoim committee with-
iut recommendation , but the corn-on
ion , after a most exciting debate ,
adapted these resolutions by a largo
majority before the full platform was
adopted. The attorneys and cappers
of all the railroad monopolies from the
Dakota line to the Kansas border be
gan lillibnstoring , and after talking
igoinst time for nearly a whole day ,
succeeded in freezing the
armors out of the convention.
When the convention had dwindled
lown to about forty delegates , ,
Mm M. ThurHlou and his man Hay-
vard pledged their honor , to adopt the
mdgo resolutions as n separate pro-
> oHition if the advocates of these roso-
ions would allow the platform ro-
lortod by the committee to be adop-
od. The concession was made , but
10 sooner had the vote oil the regu-
ar platform been taken thantho , rail
road strikers moved and carried an
adjournment. Thus the Hontimont
expressed by . the whole convention
was suppressed by a more handful of
non by the most shameless trickery.
Last week the satno in famous course
was pursued to suppress the popular
yoico. In the first place that notori
ous monopoly henchman and trickster ,
T. H. ThuHimel , of Grand Island , was
made chairman of the conven
tion. By preconcerted arrangement
Thuinmel appointed D. 0. Brooks ,
editor of the Union Pacific organ , the
Omaha Ifr/mb'tam / ' , us chairman of the
platform committoo. Although the
batch of platitudes which Urooks ro-
, ) ortod back as a platform wore brought
down from Omaha , they were not put
boToro the convention until all its
other business had been finished and
at 2 o'clock in the morning , when
nearly everybody was worn out and
anxious to retire.
Every effort to introduce resolutions
bearing upon the transportation ques
tion was throttled by the monopoly
capper in the chair and the noisy
honchnion/m the iloor. .lust as soon
as the meaningless chip trap which
Brooks had reported back OH a plat
form had been voted the brass col
lar brigade moved an adjournment
sino die , which the chairman prompt
ly declared carried ,
The republicans of Nebraska who
do not wear the brass collar , who du-
sire an honest and fearless expression
of sentiment on the living issues of
the day will , wo are coiiliduiit , novel
again submit to ttuch disreputable
trickery , and when they assemble ii
convention in 1882 they will insist
that no candidate ahnll bo nominated
until a platform baa boon adopted.
THE LATE FAIR.
Complaints are coming in from the
country press in regard to thu man *
agemont of the late state fair. The
deficiencies in the revenues , whicl
will nocessilato a draft on the surpbi !
of last year , is mauo the text forwoll
deserved comment on the causes whicl
led to the deficit , and thu blame is
very properly at the door of the man
agcrs. There is no use denying that
the lust Btato fair was not a success
It was a failnro financially because
cause it woa practically a fail
uru as a representative oxhibitior
of Nebraska's agricultural products ,
Too much attention was devoted to
what nro called "novelty attractions , '
and too little to the standard exhibit
in which every farmer and every citi-
/.on of thu state is , or ought to bo , in
terested. The stock exhibit was
shamefully small ; the showing in ag *
ricultural hall was a sad contrast to
that of last year , and the total entries
woio barely half of thoio at the preceding -
coding fair. Exhibitors coniplainci
justly about poor accommodations ,
and lud management in the care ol
their chatU-lj. Horsemen who woult :
I'ftCnut VIII I'D limn BIIJT nivHtviiiu ui .
brought before the American public.
hi.vo been lad to havocntorcd the trot
ting races declined because the purses
offered no inducements. The public
who could not bo fooled by newspa
per puffery staid away. With all
'these drawbacks the expense of con *
ducting the fair wore nearly double of
last yanr. Gross itiffliciency on the
parttif the malingers is the only rea
sonable explanation , If its oflicors
had devoted their attention to work
ing up an interest among our farmers
which would have induced them to
maku moru entries \vo should have
had n. fair which would have been
both n financial success and n matter
of pride to the state.
The state board of agriculture ) owes
it to itself to make a thorough over
hauling cf the state fair management.
The old ring seemed bad enough , but
the now ring is worse than bad. Our
state board of agriculture can not af
ford any longer to scale premiums , cut
down purses , and cancel debts by
Irawing upon present or expected sur
pluses , Nebraska will not remain si
lent while the best opportunities for
advertising her resources are thrown
FARNHAM STREET PAVE
Whenever any individual or cor
poration procures authority from this
ity to lay down gas jor water mains ,
Hewers or culverts through any of our
streets or alloys , the ordinance grant
ing diich privilege always expressly
provides that the parties undertaking
such improvements must leave the
streets in as good a condition when
: heir work is completed as they worn
> oforo the excavation In mado. When
.his city grants the privilege to any
udividual or corporation to construct
a street railway through our htreets
t is presumable that the snmo condi
tions would bo exacted. This just
ind rcasot.ablo requirement has
joon most shamefully violated in
ho ciiso of Farnham street ,
lias and water mains have been
aid by the ncorc. When the work
was completed the maca'lnm has been
; hrown into the trenches to pack
down as best it may , causing serious
inconvenience to the public and even
danger to the lives and limbs of our
citizens. It is high time that action
should bo taken by our street com
missioner or city council to put a stop
to this outrage. At the present time
Capt. Marsh is overturning the street
to lay tracks for his horde railway and
a gang of , men are tearing out the
stones and crushing them into powt
lor with pick nnd shovel , When
Farnham street was paved the horse
car company , of which Capt. Marsh
is the owner , refused to ( bear
the expense of paving the portion
> f the titrcot occupied by its lino.
The entire burden of a costly im
provement was saddled on the owners
of Farnham street properly. Mr.
Marsh should now bo forced to replace -
place the macadam which ho is tearing -
ing to pieces without so much as asking -
ing "by your leave , " and to leave
the street in as good n condition as
that in which ho found it. The promiscuous -
miscuous ahoruling in of clay and
stone will neb do. The unsightly and
dangerous holes which deface Fam-
ham street are the result of just
such criminal negligence. It
will bo the duty of the street
commissioner to BOO that the street is
loft in a passable condition , and that
some other end shall bo subserved
than the disposal of the few hundred
tons of dirt and stone which remains
after the tracks have been laid.
Such a pavement as thatou Farnham
street is a disgrace to n , city of the
simid } pretentious of Omaha , but
while it remains our city council
should insist that it bo not rendered
still worse or destroyed by tlio penur
ious negligence of gas and water com
panies and street car lines ,
The delay in the opening of the
Oto'a reservation is ono of the in
scrutable tiling. There is a secret
society hero in this region , which
claims to have its head in the gov-
orn.nont hind oflico. Each member
pays in $25. The victim is told that
one-half cf this sum gous to the ofli-
cials in the hind oflice. Latterly some
have inquired how such tin arrange
ment as proposed can bo effected.
The answer given is that the govern
ment ofliciah will mark all
the tnicts which shall have boon
selected by the Kociety us
"taken , " ' nnd refuse to , allow anyone
ono elsoto'ontcr it. It is also said
that these parties are assured that the
appraisers to bo appointed are in tlio
ring and will appraise the land so low
that there will bo a big speculation in
it. These rumors , involving as they
do the ollieiiilrt at the Beatrice laiul
otllco nnd the proposed appraisers , are
of such a nature as to demand investi
gation. [ Wymoro Reporter.
The charge made by the editor of
the Wymoro Jleporttr , if true , is
n serious ono. It amounts to
an accusation of the gravc&l
fraud and dishonesty on the
part ot ' the officials of
the Beatrice land office. The Otoo
reservation , for whoso opening hun
dreds of citizens
of Nebraska nro
waiting , contains noino of the finest
agricultural lands in the state. The
Otoes have boon
removed for some
time past to their now reservation in
Indian territory , nnd nothing remains
but the appraisement of the lands bo-
'foro they will bo thrown in the open
market. The interminable delays
which have taken place have aroused
suspicions of fraud , and currency it
two years , and if flho should become

Dit. THOMAS , the Chicago Methodist
preacher who has obtained consider
ation notoriety by holding some orig
inal viowa upon thu interpretation of
the Scriptures , has been found guilty
of heresy and sentenced to expulsion
from the Methodist ministry and from
the membership of the church. Dr.
Thomas labored under the great dis
advantage of being above mediocrity ,
and of knowing the fact. Other and
perhaps wiser men thought in private
aa ho did upon what , they considered
non-essential dill'urcncc.s In creed , but
refused to voice their views in the pul
pit. Dr. Thomas , however , expounded
bin peculiar ideas from thu platform ,
obtained n largo congregation and n
wide popularity , and has paid the
penalty. 'It is not likely that his
sphere of usefulness will bo contracted ,
for that ho was useful in his profes
sion not even the bitterest of his op
ponents is prepared to deny. Like
Professor Swing , who left the Pres
byterian church a few years ago , ho
will probably organize a congregation
and preach to crowded houses. From
a financial point of view it pays in
these days to bo a heretic , and Dr.
Thomas will find himself no exception
to the rule.
Ur to the hour of 2 a. m. thu elec
tion returns from Ohio are very mea
gre. The independent voter soeinn to
have been very numerous , and
scratched tickets in the larger cities
outnumber the straights. A much
lighter vote was polled everywhere
than last year , which is not unusal ,
because presidential elections always
draw a full vote. Governor Foster is
however re-elected by what majority
it is as yet impossible to estimate.

Why is it that it is necessary for
the British'Parliamont to puss a law
rogulatting'tho rout of Ireland ? And
why is it that this Irish law is believed
to bo only the precursor of similar
law to be enacted for England and
Scotland ? The cnuso which has forced
on tills mighty change in British
legislation is uihipry the swift navi
gation of the Atlantic and the Intro
duction of American beef and mutton
into the old country. AB long as the
tenant farmers of England Scotland
and Irclaud controlod their own mar
kets they got paying prices for the
beef , mutton and pork which formed
their principal products ; and thua
they were enabled to pay the heavy
rates of rent which were exacted for
the laud they leased ; but when , through
increased upscd of ocean transporta
tion' it became practicable to import
beef mid mutton from the United
States , whether on the hoof or slaugh
tered , nnd to neil the name in the
British market nt the prices of Texas
and Missouri , adding only the charges
far transportation nnd insurance , the
British ot Irish farmer , with his dear
land and high rates of rent , found him
self suddenly Jarought into competi
tion with the farmer 'at Texas is
Missouri , where the price of laud or
only nominal and the ruto of rent is
comparatively trilling , llcnco the
whole trouble in Ireland and else
where. Such in the cnnsinvliich is rev
olutionizing the United Kingdon , re
ducing its productive value and render
ing it necessary for the Legislature to
come in and make now settlements be
tween the laud-owner nml the tenant.
It is a great and n far-reaching revo
lution , and its extent nnd consequen-
sc.s have only begun to bo apparent.
