Rot. Mr. Shorrill , prc.sidunt of the
Miooiatinn , was delegated to watt
upon the mayor with thcso resolu

tercd and ratnrnud the compliment by
ignoring the request of the ministers
and grantud license to notorious dis-
ordurly houses , includitig the resort

sumo Mr. Sherrill is well satisfied

RKAOAK is not the only man in con-
gro&s who believes the time tiaa coma
for congress to chock the agtjrosion of
luilroado by an inter-state commerce
* ct. Congressman Henderson , of Illin
ois , is determined to push his oreomo
other Inter-Btatocommercebill through
congress this Bcsmon if possible. EIu
ays legislation of the character indi
cated is absolutely necessary , not only
for producers and traders , but for rail
road stockholders. Ho points to the
growing abuse under which a few rich
peculators , desirous of controlling
certain railroads , inaugurate a war of
rates against such roads in order to
depticiate the stock that they may pur
chase at cheaper rates. Ho thinks
tint for the protection of the stock
holders nd the producers and traders
a minimum as well as a maximum
freight rate should bo fixed.
TUB cost of the Quiteau trial is es
timated at Washington all thu way
from $100,000 , to 1300,000. The
largest bills will bo those of the asso
ciate counsel. for the prosecution
Judge Porter , of Now York , and Mr.
Davidge , of Washington who are ux
pectod to ask 825,000 npiuco. Next
will cumo the demands of the otllcia
stenographers , who have made ver
barim reports of the proceedings am
furnished the district attorney will
fifteen copies every morning , for al
of which the ) will expect from 810 ,
000 to ? 10,000. About 200 witnessv
have been summoned , and the wit
uess foes will bo very heavy , espe
cially those of the twenty-fivo expert
nailed for thu prosecution , who wi !
receive not only the usual ullowiuic
and mileage , but the value they pu
upon their services during the days
and even weeks , which they bav
given to the case. Then there is th
maintenance of the assassin , thu pa
of extra bailiff , printing and a him
dred incidentals. To all which imm
be added , in the now generally no
cepted event of conviction , the ux
pennon of execution , and it can safely
be said that no part of the bill will b
paid more cheerfully by the average
tax-payer than than this last item.

d. Wh.it more are those jurymen ex-

leclud to prove from pursonifl knowl-
duo that there was liquor
old in that mtloon Sunday
lorning before Mayor Boyd and
lis colleagues can un convinced that
lie lawn hnvo boon violated.
True that ether parties to whom
tin board has already granted licenses
lave sold liquor without license , and
tept their saloons open Sunday , but
lese facts have not boon brought to
lie notice of the board officially , and
liey could ignore them ; but they can-
ot if they live up to their oaths and
lie plain letter of the law ignore the
irotest of that jury. It is simply Mr.
'roitsohko's bad luck or mmfortuno
hat this murder happened in his
all ion at that hour and upon that day.
tut the law is no rcspoctorof persons ,
rid loaves no discretion to the board ,
iupposo however , none of the members
f that coroner's jury see fit to ap-
lour before the board , can that
> ody consistently , with the letter
ud spirit of the law , treat the
liargo contained in their protest as
lotprovon , and legally grant a license ?
Thin board is not a criminal court
0 try charges against applicants for
icenses an if they wore on trial for
nurdor , arson or burglary , but merely
1 board of inquiry to ascertain
vhother the conduct and character
of applicants for license to sell liquor
s such as would entitle them to n
jrivilegu which the law expressly ro-
niros shall be granted only to ropu-
ublo and law-abiding citizens. The
vidoncu to convince the board that a
arty has not complied with the laws eras
as kept a disorderly house should not
io restricted to direct proof of what
larties can testify to of their personal
knowledge. The fact that murders
ind bloody frayn have occurred in a
esort that nella liquor nt unseasonable
tours or on Sunday ought to convince
uny board disposed to enforce the law.
The fuel that any saloon is notoriously
resort for thieves , gamblers and
> rostitutes and an such known to the
mliuo , is of itself sullicient proof of a
disorderly house. There appears to
bo a determination on the part of our
city authorities to override and nullify
ho laws and in
every instance to c n-
itruit them contrary to their spirit
and essence.
As long as this is the cuso law and
order in Onmhu will remain a more
'nrco.
TIIK ice problem is becoming quite
serious in Now York owing to the
continuance of mild weather. There
is not a particle of ice in the Hudson
between Now York and Troy , and
even down in Maine thu rivers are
still open. It usually requires a
month of favorable weather to har
vest the Iludion river crop , so that ,
oven if the river should freeze over
month of severe weather , a full crop
this week , and January should bo a
could not be gathered before the 10th
of February. The present indications
are that , oven with a radical change
in the temperature , the work of cutting -
ting ice cannot begin before
the 15th or 20th of January ,
which will prolong the season well
into Februarywhen there is generally
a thaw which honeycombs the ice and
seriously damages , if it docs not en
tirely spoil , the crop. Few people
are aware how large an industry ice
gathering is. On the Hudson alone
thousands of men and boys are em
ployed at it for Hooks every winter
and it is estimated that $100,000 is
paid out in wages during the ice liar
v si. Of course there is no reason u
yet for any fear of un entire failure
of the crop , but it is ulain the dealer
will have some excuse for the incrcas
of prices , which they will doubtles
make next summer ,

D1VTBICT REPRESENtATlON
Pniler our national constitution ,

if congress IB apportii nod iimong the
nta'Pi by rcprt'seiitutividihticts upon
tin * bisis of Hit ) COHSUH taken every
ten years TJni division of the states
iitiic'in.Ti Hiional districts , according
to the nunibrr of representatives to
.tliich they me entitled , is left with
I'UiVa'iiriof the respective Htatoi.
Plie * | ii unary object of this syn-
li in is to give the inhabitants of each
subdivision or nection local represen
tation in congress ,
The American senate , copied nfter
.ho English house of lords , is pre
eminently thu representative of the
sovereign Mates , while thu members
if the house represent the people.
Until now Nobroxka has only been
represented by one member of con
gress , hence he was necessarily voted
or by the entire state nnd chosen
without reference to locality. Under
he new apportionment made on thu
urn's of the ceimue of 1880 Nebraska
will bo entitled to thieo congressmen ,
and unless an exception in made in bo-
mlf of this state by congress the duty
will devolve upon our legislature to
livido the state into congressional
listricts , with each as nearly an possi-
> lo of equal population
Under the pretext that an oxtrases-
ion of thu legislature to district the
tate would involve an extra expense ,
Valentino introduced abill in Congress
wo weeks ago to enable Nebraska to
lect her first three congressmen
rom the state at largo instead of elect
ng them from three congressional
liatricts. This bill ought not to passer
or many reasons. In the first place
t is bad policy for congress to deviate
rom the letter and spirit of the con-
titutioii for the bono''t ' of Nebraska
> r any other state. The constitution
Describes a method of apportioning
representatives among the states and
any apportionment bill passed by con
; rens should bo in compliance with
constitutional provisions and ofuni
orm application to all the states.
It would bo unjust and impolitic for
congress to enact a special law to gov
ern the apportionment of congressmen
n Nebraska. If this state is entitled
o exemption , other states that hold
10 legislative sessions this winter are
equally entitled to exemption. In the
next place the proposition to elect
hreo congressmen from the state at
argo might result in giving ropreson
nt ion to ono section of the atato to
the detriment of ether sections. On
: ho ether hand district representation
would cquuli/.o the congressional rep
rcsontation and give the people in each
flection apocial champions of thfiir lo
cal interests
For instance the river counties now
mve both senators , and n sectional
iool organized to control the nomin
iting convention might place the three
congressmen into the same section
Omaha alone can furnish candidate *
or every place in congress to which
Nebraska will be entitled for thu
text twenty years.
A combination between throe or
bur counties would insure to them
ho whole congressional delegation be
rend a doubt. The manifest interest
of the people of this state is that the
state shall bo divided into congros
eional districts and they can wull af
ford the expense of an extra session
of the legislature.
Jjuch a sessien need not last longer
: han a week , and $5,000 would cover
he entire expense. If our senators
desire to heed the wish of their constituents
stituonts , they will never concur in
Valentino's bill. Wo know whereof
wo speak , when wo asaert that the
rreat mass of our people are adverse
, o Valentine's scheme , and in favor
of district representation.

The first business of importance to
bo transacted by the house after con
gress reassembles , will be the Utah
case , which will be brought up Janu
ary 10 , on Ilaskell's resolution to seat
Campbell , who holds a certificate as
delegate-elect. It is expected that
8. 8. Cox , or some other democratic
member , will propose a resolution to
seat Cannou , the Mormon delegate
instead , and there is every indication
upon thoto two propositions a long ,
oaniest and probably acrimonious de
bate will ensue , and lhat it will not
end until all the merits and demits ol
Mormnnitm and polygamy shall have
been pretty thoroughly discussed. All
the acts officially kuowu to the
house are that Campbell holds a
certificate of election from the governor
of Utah , certifying that he ( Camp
bell ) was the person , being n citizen
of the United States , having the
highest number of votes at said elec
tion ; that accordant ; to thu table of
votes certified by the secretary of
Utah territory to be a coirect tran
script from the records of the terri
tory , Cannon received 18.5US votes
and thai Campbell received Iy57j
together with certain papers nhowinp
that in the governor's opinion , de
rived from an investigation of the
court records uf the territory , Can
non is an alioi ) , and the further fact
that the name of Cannon was placed
on the pay-roll of the house as a del
egate by Clerk Adams. Haskoll and
thoBu who agree with him maintain
that the only paper to bo considered
in thu disoupiion of thu prima fuciu
case is the ccrtificato hold by Camp
bell , under which they maintain hu is
entitled to bo seated.
Cox , it is understood , in common
with o majority of the democrats ,
holds that the transcript of election
returns filed by Cannon entitles him
to bo seated on a prima fuciu case.
Some of the ablest republican lawyers
among whom it is understood are
Heed , chaittnan of the judiciary com
mittee , nnd Robeson contend tlmt
Jumphull'fi ccrtificato shown on it *
face , in the words of his being a
oiti/i-n of the L'nited States , that
Governor Murray undertook to decide
that Cannon was ineligible , 11 matter
in which ho had no jurisdiction
There are also a oed many tcpublican
members who believe tlmt , oven
granting Campbell's certificate to bo
technically valid , it would bo imprac
ticable to make the country believe ,
in view of the fact that ho received
only 1J57 : votes. while his
competitor received 18,508 of
the votes , that an unjust advan
tage had not been taken should Can
non bo defeated. Thu democrats will ,
probably , vote solidly against such a
proposition , and it does not seem at
all probable , therefore , that Campbell
will bo admitted on his prima facie
caso. The admission of C.innon ap
pears to bo even less probable. With ,
possibly the exception of Belford , of
Colorado , it is said that not a tnnglu
republican will so votu , and it IH cur
rently reported that Randall , Cassidy
( of Nevada ) and noino other democrats
will vote against seating him , It
RCOIUB altogether likely that , the whole
subject will be referred to the commit
tee on elections , and thu result will bo
a report against thu admission of
either of thu men claiming to bo dele
gates elect from Utah.
Smco the Forty-third congress , thu
last one before the present , in winch
the republicans controlled the house
of representatives , thu temper of that
body ha not boon so hostile to Mormonism -
monism and polygamy as it is now.
While not open apologists , or defend
ers of the peculiar institution which
flourishes in Utah , the democratic
majority in the house have carefully
and stuioualy ignored thu steadily
growing evils , and have contemptu
ously neglected frequent recommend
ations of the president for additional
legislation to check and destroy
them. Bill after bill was offered by
republican members , and all of them
were smothered in committee. In
the lost congress \\illits , of Michi
gan , wfTerod three bills of very grent
importance , designed to enforce the
sentiment of the country in regaid
to polygamy. The bills were
referred to the judiciary com
mittee , of which Willits was
a member and Proctor Ivnott
was chairman. It took weeks , if not
months , for Willitts to prevail upon
Knott to refer the bills to the sub
committee nnd ho never succeeded in
getting u report from the sub commit
tee. In all those six years of demo
cratic control Cannon and his poly
gamous associates pursued the even
tenor of their way , and not until the
republicans organized the present con
gress did they have cause for alarm.
If the majority of the house were
democratic Cannon would unqtiestion-
aply secure nnd hold his seat. Now
he will certainly lose it , even if he
shall be heated temporarily , and be
sides that there will bo stern legisla
tion against polygamy. There are
many members ot the houuo who bo-
hdvo that , under the circumstances ,
Utah Territory is entitled to no
representation whatever in con
gress A prominent republican
member of the house has piop.m-d
resolutions reciting admissions made
Cannon under oath that ho is n
polygumist in theory and practice , and
that he has publicly preached and
taught that doctrine , and declaring
that the house will never consent tc
the admission as delegate fiom any
territory of any man who practices or
believes in plural marriage.
Another evidence that the majority
of the house is ripe for severe meas
ures against the Mormon hierarchy , is
found in the general favor with which
is received the bill of Willits to. abolish
ish thu territorial legislature of Utah ,
and substitute therefor a legislative
council of nine members , to to bo appointed -
pointed by the president , and con
firmed by the senate. It h under
stood that a majority of the committee
of the judiciary have already ex
