on the lecture platform and now argu

jority of common sense , practical wo
men in the state are too busy at pres
ent in attending to their domestic du
ties to pay much attention to the
spasmodic shrieks of the chronic
woman's rights agitators. The
woman's euOr.igo campaign needs
galvanizing very badly. The pre <
have become sick of the subject and
the pcoplo oven sicker. The mothers
and sisttrs who wcto granted the
right to vote at school elections very
unanimously decided that they preferred
ferrod the parlor to the hallr , and the
late convention at Lincoln failed to
muster a corporal's guard. Under those
circumstances it is not at al
surprising that the American Woman's
Suffrage association have sent Mrs
Oiimpoll to the rescue. Wo are free
to confess that wo don't know who
Mrs. Campbell is or what rank aho
holds among the high priestesses o

Chicago Times.
Ex'Senator Paddock is not a very
reliable political weather prophet. He
predicted that Nebraska would bo
solid for Grant two years ago but she
sent a'olid delegation to Chicago for
Blaino. Mr. Paddock predicted that
ho would bo ro-oloctod to the Bonnie
on rho first ballot , but after thirty-six
ballots the legislature elected Gon. Van
Wyck. What the senator says about
destroying the numerous factions is
all bosh. There are only two factions
in Nebraska , the railroad corporations
and their retainers on the ono side
and the people of the state upon the
other. These factions will continue
until the corporate monopolies with
draw from the political field and allow
the people to govern themselves.
The manner in which the state was
rodistriotod may bo most satisfactory
to Valentino , but ho will discover be
fore three months roll round that the
Third Nebraska district is not a third
term district.
TUB principle at stake in the recant
struggle at Washington over the con' '
tested elections was a simple but im
portant one , viz , whether or not a
parliamentary body is the solo judge
of the eligibility of Its own members ,
and whether in the determination of
that question the voice of the major
ity shall rule. A ton days contest
with partisan obstruction has settled
the question and resulted in the seating
of throe republicans and ono green-
backer , and the ousting of an
aqual number of democrats. The
hrdlnoss with which election
cases are adjusted is attracting well
deserved comment. At the opening
of congress twenty-two claimants for
seats appealed for a recognition of
their rights. Nearly six months
elapsed before the Oampbell-Oannon
: aso was decided. Reports have been
made to the house in seven coses , and
nine .are yet pending in committee.
I'hls delay is a grave injustice to the
Individuals directly concerned. It is
i still graver Injustice t * the constit
uents of lawfully elected representa
tives deprived of their rights while a
minority candidate occupies the scat
to which he was not elected , and
Irawi pay to what he U not entitled ,
[ n several instances men , who had no
more title to the seat in
; engross than Chalmers , who was
kicked oat after voting and epoaklng
for six months , have only boon ousted
within a few days of the expiration of
the session , This uncalled for delay
is expensive to the government , An
ousted member is generally granted
full pay for his services. When the
awfully elected contestant is awarded
lis seat from which ho has boon do-
jarred ho is given a sum equal to tbo
mlary which ho would have drawn
from the beginning of the session if
; here had been no contest. And if a
jontcstant has been unsuccessful con-
jroBs defrays the expenses of his coji-
: eat. The consideration of contested
ileotion cases ought to bo made the
irst business of congrets after its or
ganization. It is duo to all parties
ioncorned that the determination
ihould bo made as quickly as possible.

low pays two salaries and in addition

ion to take the sword. " This is high-
y figurative. Mr. Summer's cominis-
ion was that of paymaster , and
hough ho may have kept his accounts

ivor hitllclod were given with a steel

of our city continues to bo drawn moro

addition that was made to it by the
hoodlums it well deserves the name ol
common council , for it is certainly
true that A moro common cot of num

We apprehend our present counci
will compare favorably with any preceding

years. The late addition may no1
suit the Herald but wo take it that
every man elected last spring is as com
petent and reputable as the dofeatoc

Tbo Farmuro' Alliance uncl Politics.
8enrd Reporter.
Many papers of the monopoly stripe
throughout the state are continually
howling about the Farmers' Alliancu
and its connection with politics ,
assorting that the Alliance properly
has nothing to do with politics , and
should confine its work to matters of
farm interests alone. Ono would im
agine , from the tone of thcso papers ,
that the farmers have nothing to do
with politics , and have no interest in
the propir administration of public
aQaira. The business of the farmer ,
as these monopoly orgitis would seem
to indicate , is simply to raise corn and
wheat , breed hogs and cattle , and
let the self-sacrificing individuals
who run thoio newspapers , look after
the political interests of the country.
The Alliance meetings are regarded
by this class of men as a harmless kind
of amusement for agriculturists to
engape in , so long as they discuss
nothing but the best stock of cattle to
breed , the amount of grain to sow on
an acre , and kindred subjects ; but the
moment the farmers begin to talK , in
the Alliance meetings , of the exorbi
tant rates which they have to pay to
got their produce to market , and try
to devise some plan to curb the extor
tions of the railroads , these mon kold
up their hands in holy horror , and
cry'out that the Alliance ia being sub
verted from its original purpose and
made a political organisation. These
papers call themselves "friends of the
tanners , " and they cannot sit idly by
while the farmers neglect their legiti
mate business and talk of how to save
a part of their crops from the oxtor
tioiia of the monopolies. No , they
cannot , because if they did , the mo
nopolies would withdraw their sup
port from them and then their occu
pation would bo gono.
Now , it is patent to any observer ,
that either the editors of such papers
do not know anything of the real pur
poses of the Farmers' Alliance , or
else that , they are coutrorled by the
monopoly politicians. The Alliance
was instituted to enable farmers to act
in concert , In order to accomplish any
end which might seem to bo for their
interest. This would undoubtedly
include all matters , connected * with
crops , stock , etc. , but does not neces
sarily stop thero. There is nothing
the constitution of the Alliance , as
originally organized , to prevent it
from acting as a political organization ,
or taking cognizance of politics. No
Boonor did the farmers come together
and exchange ideas , than it was seen
that they were all of one
mind on the subject of the exactions
imposed upon them by corporate
monopolies. Then , of course , they
made an attempt to help themselves ,
and it is the fear of this attempt prov
ing Buccesaful that animates the mono
poly organs , the pretended "farmers'
friends , " to cry out about the degen
eracy of the Alliance into politics
The farmers can afford to let thuso fol
lows howl ; it is an indication that the
cause of ant ! monopoly Is gaining
ground , and that the monopolists are
In fear of being overthrown.
The Farmers' Alliance is doing well
to discuss 'politics , and to make itself
Felt us a political organization , and the
ilay is not far distant when the views
it advocates will have to bo incor
porated into the platform of every
political parly that hopes to succeed.
Repreeontaiion of the People.
S'ew York1la e.
The events of the last week furnish
i now illustration of the difficulty of
iccuring a faithful * representation of
the will of the people in the existing
} ondition of politics. The result of
the Westbrook investigation and the
general character of the legislation of
the session which has juot closed
were certainly not in accordance with
the wishes of the mass of honest and
intelligent citizens who constitute thu
body politio of this Btato. Influences
ivoro constantly brought to bear upon
ho legislature which were hostile to
, ho highest public interest , and they
reached a body of mon who were
nero strongly swayed by them than
jy a sento of public duty and of ro-
iponsibility to the people.
There is greater need in these times
ban over before of a strict ropresen-
atlon of the popular will in all public
jodics , Corporations have so grown
u power and wealth and are so far
controlled by men whoso selfish in
terests are in conflict with public and
private rights that the people have
special need of protection from their
encroachments. Corporations engag
ed in the business of transportation
servo a most useful and valu iblo pur
pose , and there ought to be no antag
onism between them and the people
with whom they have dealings. No
body desires to ruin or to cripple them
or to prevent their stockholders from
deriving a fair profit from their busi
ness. But they are controlled by a
comparatively small number of men ,
who ore not content with legit
imate gains or willing to bear a
fair share of public burdens. In theii
efforts to incrcaso their gains nm
evade their burdens they are disposed
to use all the power that wealth gives
them. They concentrate it upon the
judiciary when their nbjpcts are to bo
secured by its action , and they dirccl
it upon the legislature to gain privi
leges and immunities or to defeat ro-
ttrictivo or coercive measure intcndei
to protect the rights of the public.
They employ the best legal talent in
their service , and they subsidise so far
oa they can the men who make a bus
iness of politics. Jf the people can
fcul no assurance of integrity on the
bench or honesty in the legislature ,
they are certainly in a bad case.
Wo have seen a struggle to punish
judicial dereliction and puree the
bench of dishonor utterly defeated.
Wo have aeon the contest of an up
right and courageous minority in the
legislature in behalf of wise laws and
against Corrupt schemes in a largo de
gree overborne by the baser elements.
Where the interest nnd the wishes of
the people havti boon in these contro
versies there can bo no mannnr ol
doubt. The results are not duo to a
dogonotato public sentiment nor a
hopeless public indifference , but to
the failure of the chosen representa
tives of the people to represent them.
There are in some communities con
siderable masses of voters who through
and lack of civic virtue may be used
to sustain schemes of public infamy ,
but in general the body politio is
sound. The people want good gov
ernment , wlso laws , and upright pub
lie dealing , They prefer men of
ability , integrity , and Honor in places
of public 'trust and responsi
bility , and they would vets
to put them there if they
ercrcised a choice that was neithtr
trammeled nor thwarted by other
forces than their own apathy and inca
pacity. Lot a vote bo taken under
conditions that secured a perfect ex
pression of the popular will and such
men as Roosevelt , Spraguc , Crane ,
Robb , Morrison , nnd Chapin among
the representatives of this city and
Brooklyn in the late assembly would
receive the fullest assurance of public
confidence from their constituents re
gardless of party , and the incompe
tent and dishonest corruptionists
would be overwhelmed with condem
nation , and yet to day it is a matter of
some doubt which of these classes of
men stand the better chance of being
again among the nominal representa
tives of the people.
There is a power at work in our
politics which , to a large extent , de
feats popular representation. The
legislature which adjourned on Friday
did not represent the people , and
tionce was not faithful to their inter
ests or obedient to their will When
the people really choose their repre
sentatives they will show their prefer
ence for men of character , ability and
firmness , who cannot be corrupted or
swayed from fidelity to public interests ,
but they will not choose them for any
length of time BO long as the
irresponsible and unregulated cau
cus fcyatom of nominations is
allowed . to exist. They must
first of all , by some moans ai'curo in
dependent candidates , independent
either in the method of their nomina
tion or in their known character , and
having once obtained a really repre
sentative body of legislators , they
must insist on a permanent , legalized
method of selecting candidates by pop
ular vote which shall make represen
tation secure in the future. ' They can
prevent the failure and disgrace of the
institution of free government only by
exorcising their own power and really
choosing the mon who are to make
their law's , protect their interests , and
vindicate their authority over un
worthy officers , if such are discovered
in their service.

An Animal That Wouldn't Think of
Going : Into or Near a Fire.
HochCB'cr Poft-Ejprc s.
Rochester is the possessor of the
only living salamander now in this
country. This wondtrfnl natural curi
osity was secured in Japan by Professor
ser Henry A. Waid and brought homo
under hia person : * ! supervision. The
salamander of fublo is ono of the big
gest frauds on record. A famous
maker once named his safes after the
salamander to indicate their indestruc
tible composition , but it is to be feared
that if they could not endure firomoro
readily than the salamander , as he
really oxisto , none of their number
bor would be found again after a
firo. But the very fact that so much
romancing has been done about the
wonderful endurance of this monster ,
makes htm an object of unusual in
terest. The specimen in question ,
which was viewed by a Post-Express
reporter shortly after its arrival , is
called the Gigantic 'Salamander or
Steboldia Maxima. It was named in
honor of Dr. Von Europe and placed
it in a tank at Leyden , where il
passed a period of '
many years in'cap
tivity. Its length was about a yard ,
and it ia stated that two specimens
were brought oyer at the same time
by Dr. Siobold , but thenule unfortu
nately killed his intended bride and
ate her np , leaving himself to pass
the remainder of his lifo in celibacy.
It may be stated an a coincidence
the Profesbor Ward a'so started from
Japan with two aalaminors-
mole , the other a female and thai
the female in this instance also came
to an untimely end on the voyage ,
But her death was not duo to any can
uibaliaty trait in the character of the
male , but rather to the fact that the
water with which her tub was replen
ished upon ono unfortunate occasion
ws too warm for her constiution.
The sad event took place ono day be
fore the steamer landed at San Fran
The survivor measures thirty inches
in length , and ia apparently full
; rown. So far from longing for a
liath in a fiery furnace , this one can-
aot endure even the mildest form of
beat or light. When brought from
the dark recesses of the cellar in
which it is temporarily housed , it
creeps into the darkest corner of the
tub m which it is confined. It has
four legs with rounded to s , which re
mind ono of the fingers of the rag-
babies in Nast's cartoons. Its tail is
long and resembles that of a lizard ,
and its soft skin is of a pale brown
color , withdarkermarkings. Its head Is
large and flattened , being wider than
any part of itn body. On the fore
part of its head it has small dull eyes ,
which , unlike the jewels in the head
of the toad , do not relieve the gen
eral ugliness. Its entire body is covered
ored with warty excrescences. The
irpsout specimen , has not eaton any-
hing several weeks , the appetite of
lalamauders being very irregular.
They fued chiefly on fish , which do-
apito thuir sluggish behavior , they
are able to catch. They also devour
other animal eubstnncea.
