THE MAYOR'S DUTY ,

dor his chargo. The charter vosU th
power of appointment , for ncarl
every ofllco in the mayor and upot
him rests the responsibility. Ho i
now again called on to fill the cit ;
offices , and ho ought to make use o
last year'fl experience in giving u
bettor government wherever it can b
dono. Personal friendships and polil
icil debts should not for ono momcn
swerve him from the faithful dis
charge of this duty. It is an old say
ing that "wiso men change , fool
never. * ' It will bo no sign of weak
ness in Mayor Boyd to drop incompetent
tent men from the pay roll of th
city , On the contrary it will go to hi
credit that ho is willing to do for th
city what ho would do for his owi
It is notorious that the head of ou
police force is incompoient and tha
the whole force in sadly demoralized
It is mainly because Mr. Angoll is no
made of the stuff of which good cit ;
marshals ought to bo composed , because
cause ho hasn't got the back bone to
grapple with the crime and evil demanding
manding his attention , that the whol
police department in Omaha is a fail
uro. In some other business Mr. An
goll might bo a success. But oven his
deputy who at ono time was a man o
some stamina has become almost a
wreck. The growth of this city bring
with it a constant increase of potty
criminals and law breakers and it do
tnands a higher grade of ability fo :
handling and directing the police forci
than was over needed before.
Wo are told that thn mayor proposes
to make a change in the city attorney

change will bo for the bolter and nol
for the worse. The city pays enough

It is the mayor's duty to appoint a

TEXAS is thoroughly in earnest in
lor efforts to restrict monopolies' , but
n ono caao her legislationhas * ( not
icon approved by the courts. JgATlaw
was recently enacted imposing a tax
of ono cent each on telegraph mos-
ages sent and received at all offices
n the state , , making no diacrimina-
Ion between telegrams sent to points
within nnd without the state linos.
The United States supreme court has
ironouncod tho'legislation unconstitu-
ionai. It admits the right of the
tate to tax telegraphic- business done
within its own borders but decides
hat taxation of messages outside the
state is a regulation of inter-state commerce -
morco which state authorities have no
> ewer to enforce.
A SPECULATIVE FRAUD.
Senator MoPheraon , of Now Jersey ,
ioa introduced in tko senate a bill for
a grand overland railroad direct from
STow Jersey to California. The preamble
amble states that the intercsts'of ' the
Atlantic coast by way of'Omaha to
California as a moan 'of "destroying
an existing gigantic railroad monopoly
through which may arise unchecked ,
a money power dangerous to liberty ; ' '
that a European syndicate is pro-
taring to build the road without gov
ernment subsidy , and that its con
struction will bo undertaken by the
overland construction company with a
proposed capital of ono hundred and
fifty million in bonds , and an equal
tmount in stock , and that the aid of
: ho United Statoa is needed for right
of way through the public domain.
L'iio incorporators therefore ask that
the government authorize thorn to lay
the tracks nnd telegraph lines over
any portion of the territory of the
Jnitod Stnccs needed for its purpose to
grant it a light of way for two hun
Irod feet on caoh side of the track
rhoro it croiues the public domain. In
onclusion the company asks for such
orporato powers as nro granted by
? ow Jersey to railroads doing busi
ness in that siato , The milk in this
speculative cocoauut lies in the last
clause. Now Jersey is the
most monopoly ridden of
all the states and its railroads enjoy
ho most outrageous privileges in the
way of tax exemption und encroach-
uonts on private rtahts. There is
no probability that the roads which
Senator MoPherson is attempting to
engineer will pvor bo anything more
han a road on paper or a more stub
iuo connecting with some of , the
other monopolies vhich now gridiron
the state. There is a strong suspi
cion , however , that the granting 'of
luch a charter as the ono oAked is to
> o skilfully uaod by the stock gamb-
e to aid in pushing eiUwr of the e
schemes by moans of the valuable
immunities and privileges which
would accompany the grant. At nil
events , any measure rotating to rail
roads introduced by Senator McPherson -
son should bo received with suspicion ,
A senator elected tis a monopolycand-
idato is not the best man to preach
anti-monopoly or to advocate antimonopoly -
monopoly measures in conereaa.
REFORM WITHIN THE PARTY.
Senator Mitchell , of Pennsylvania ,
has stirred up quito a broczo by a recent -
cent letter to Mr. Barker , of Phila
delphia , in which ho throws down the
gauntlet to the Camerons by denounc
ing existing abuses within the repub
lican party , that have been caused by
boss rule. Commenting on the effect
of this now famous letter , UioThila-
dolphin American ( if last Sunday says :
The letter of tjonator Mitchell to
Mr. Barker will contribute to the force
of the independent influences which
are at work within the Republican
party of Pennsylvania. This , itself ,
is an absolute good. Whatever moves
the conscience of the party , whatever
incites it to honorable activity , what
ever calls it to n sense of the degrada
tion which it suffers under the rule of
a "boss'-shipj out to bo welcomed by
every ono of its sincere and earnest
member * . If Senator Mitchell's letter
did no moro than cause discussion
within the party , it must aid in scour
ing a comprehension and analysis of
the evils from which the organization
But Mr. Mitchell does mpro than
this. Ho not only causes discussion.
Ho not only makes occasion fora
day's debate. Ho contributes , be
sides , what everyone who roads it
must Bay is a truthful and candid rep
resentation of the case of the party. '
The moderation of his langungo en
forces a conviction of his sincerity.
What ho says is manifestly the out
come of an honest consideration of
the subject. And it is a great deal to
have had this. For Mr. Mitchell
holds a high place by the selection of
the republicans of Pennsylvania.
They have no greater honors to bestow -
stow than the two sonatorahips , ono
of which ho holds. And when , there
fore , ho puts himself upon the record
against the methods of "machine"
rule when ho says :
"I do not believe In the political meth
ods too much and too lorn'practised in our
state. . . . 'I hnvo opposed them from
my first cntranca into legislative life , nnd
shall continue to do so , "
this , itself , is a notable proceeding. It
lias boon long since the republican
party of Ponnaylyania has had a sena-1
: or at Washington who would speak
n this manner of the political raeth
ids which his colleagues embodies
3o much of candor and so much of
courage have not been represented in
the United States senate from this
elate for many years in the post.

that wields much influence in the
ranks of Pennsylvania republicans ,
seconds Senator Mitchell's effort at
reform within the lines of the party ,
as follows :
It is easy to do the work of the
bosses by sneering at Senator Mitch-
nil's utterances because ho did not
found a now party of ono instead of
proposing to reform an old party of
voters. Managing a party of ono is
always an easy job , particularly in a
newspaper ; but Senator Mitchell is
strong , not because ho in s party of
one , but because ho isn't , and speaks
instead for a great party sick of
bosses and disgusted with obnoxious
men , measure * and management. His
position is the position of the great
majority of the party , who look on the
republican party as a good ono as far
as it goes , and propose to make it go a
good deal farther , not by flinging
atones at the organization , but by
dressing rniks , putting notr men to
the front , und sending on an old force
of honest voters to now victories.

B. Stout , the prison contractor , was
the shooter , and Billy Hitchcock , a
young "tough" of tills city , the
shootoo. Stout was driving in from
the penitentiary about 9 o'clock , witl
a young lady , and when near the roat
houio young Hitchcock jumped up on
the buggy , and apparently sought to
steal a ride into town. The occupants
of the buggy attempted to shako their
unwelcome visitor , but ho clung on
tenaciously. Finally ho tore away the
back curtain , and apparently sough !
to put his arm around thogirl. There
upon Stout drew a revolver and fired ,
shooting the other right below the
eye. Stout at once drove to a neigh
boring house and telephoned into
town regarding hia deed. Ho then
drove in and cavohimself into custody.
Dr. Carter was called to attend Hitch
cock , and gave it as hts opinion that
ho would recover. Stout was re-
leaned without bail , the circumstances
clearly justifying the deed.

SOCIAL MFE AT TEKAMAH.
Correspondence ol.TiiK Bsi.
TEKAMAH , Neb. , April 14. If
there is ono feature above another for
which the BEE is to bo praised , its
willingness to make prominent the
social element of our prosperous lit-
; lo town is to bo commended. Often
as wo contemplate our environment
of solitude the thought arises , cannot
wo do something tu make this loneliness
ness moro tolerable ? If this question
falls under the eye of any ono dis
consolate , beyond the borders of civ
ilization , just lot the question repeat
itself , and then got to work. But my
suggestion is that of a novice in thlj
direction , far from original and simply
repeated with the hope that it may
stir others up to assist in developing
the social feature of our little town.
Example is moro stimulating than
precept , and I wish to say something
about the good cheer and harmony
at Tekamah , for Ufa hero is just as
pure and contented as the limpid
streams which murmur happily on
either side of the town. It is not in
tended to mention any person to the
disadvantage of others , but the mem
bers of the Pleasant Hours association
of this place deserve special mention ,
for the most enjoyable gatherings they
gave during the past season. Too
much praise cannot bo bestowed
upon our worthy President , George
Zanner , who , by his untir
ing efforts and well known
skill , did much to make our entertain
ment of the 12th inst. a grand success
and ono long to bo remembered by
the whole community.
The celebrated orchestra of Prof
Ecg. B. Mesaon , of Fort Omaha , fur-
mahod the music as usual , and too
much cannot bo suid of the sweet har
mony which this company favored
the entertainment. Strauss , who
has placed the gay world under
so many obligations , proved to bo a
successful rival on this happy occa
sion. The entertainment was opened
at 8 p. m. by Prof. Messir's orchestra ,
nnd from thut hour until midnight
Terpsichore and her followers hold

PROHIBITION IN KANSAS.
VIowB of a Lioavonworth Editor on
tbo Effect of tno Law.
Chicago Herild , April U.
"How does the prohibition law
operate in Kansas ? ' was the question
put to the Hon. H. M. Aller , editor
of The Lcavonworth Evening Press.
"It has been a total failure , as far as
the larger towns are concerned , " was
Mr. Allor's disheartening reply.
"Then the law is of no avail in
chocking the sale of liquor ? "
"It docs no good , and for all the
attention paid to it , it might just as
well be out of existence. Not a sin
gle saloon has been closed in Leaven-
worth since the law went into effect ,
and what is true of Leavonworth is
equally two of all other largo cities.
There was SOMO excitement when th
law was passed , but that has all dice
away , and the saloons do as good
business as ever. Even in the smallo
towns , where the law seems to act
there is just as much drinking now as
there over was. The liquor dealer
say that their sales throughout th
state are as largo as ever , nnd thoi
business ha , if anything , been botto
than before. "
"Havo there been any fines impoaei
or any attempts made to stop the sal
in the largo cities ! "
"Oh , yes ; but what could bo don
when no witnesses could bo fount
against n saloon-keeper ? Such is th
condition of affairs throughout the
"What will bo the ultimate rcsul
of the law and iU open violation ? "
"Nothing but repeal as soon as
Governor St. John nnd his party are
out of the way ; The only Jaw tha
will act in this instance , as in all other
social evils , is the strict license law erin
in other words , a license option law
Make such n law nnd it will stand
but the present ono is nothing but a
source of amusement and open con
tempt. So long as such n law , absolutely
lutoly prohibiting the sato of liquors ,
is in force and inoperative , either ii
Kansas or any other state , so long
will it have only the effect of making
criminals despise all the laws. "

moro , which is better than many
"grown people" do. The parrot ,
when it first began to take beer , gel
full , and these who saw it say the
parrot was just like a man. First it
was funny , and laughodat everything ,
ind wanted to have n high old time.
Then it began to quiet down and
would sit on the perch and pay no
attention to anything that was said ,
appearing to bo sea-sick. And the
loxt morning its feathers all Boomed
) o pull , and the parrot had the hoad-
tcho. Its master offered it some beer
hat morning but the poor bird looked
at him as much as to say : "Haven't
u got any soda-wator ? " The bird has
iwprn off , and is a great favorite ,
) oing one of the "most intellectual
nnd versatile parrots in the city.
