WHERE DO THEY STANDt This is the question which the pc pie of Nebraska are pulling regard ! : Iho candidalcs who are prcsenlii ihcrasolvua for approval and ondort mont at the polls.

Whei do they stand on thu questio of compelling corporations , protocto by the atato , lo boar their just shai of the burdens of taxation which at now shifted upon Iho shoulders of ou people ?

Where do our candidates for congress gross stand on the issue of a reductioi in taxation , and a more economics expenditure of the public moneys Do they approve of the rail on tin national .treasury b ; which $20,000,000 wore devoted to i Bchoiao of local internal improvement of which thrco-Gfths was a clsixr steal Can they pledge themselves to worl for the modification of a tariff whiol is bleeding the nation to increase ai unnecessary surplus in thu treasury while it enriched a few wealthy monop olista al the expense of the public a largo ? These are a few of the pcrti nonl questions which Nebraska votcn are considering in connection with tin political campaign. And in consider ing Iho answers Iho records of ttu candidates will bo taken into consid jratlon. DROP ESTIMATES * AND THE The public should bo on tholr guard igainst the bogui reports of oxtrava- ; ant harvests which are daily placed n circulation by eastern speculators , vith a view of decreasing the price of rhoat in thu lianda of the farmers. 'huru is no questioning the fact that ho preocnl otop will bo as largo , if ot larger , than any ever btforo har- cstod , but the wild reports of nome lock jobbing jounmla , whoso only ob- jet is to depress values for the F great operatoro , sh.ulJy'uo taken 'ith a great deal ofjjowaiico. } The Arkota just B - present are unu- mlly dn.

Ono leading Hinnl places the wheat crop ul GOO- , 30,000 bushels while another equally iliablo KOCB lo the other extroino and jttmatca it at 400,000,000 buurmls. loiiBcirvativo judges allow 020,000,000 uahols as the probable harvest , and liL'Do tigurca are nuariir to trulh than ithcr of the others. The largest pro- tous yield in 18SO was -IDO.OOO.OOO i hioh was ninety milhonn uboto that f last year , So far as the oorn crop is concerned otimatoa vary as widely as who.it the rhuat harvest , is under discussion. The riirm run of the past Ihreu weeks aa worked wondora all over thu ountry in conturbalancing the dis- stroua cll'octa of a wet summer. The 'ublic inclines to the belief that the mil yield will not exceed 1,200,000- 00 bushels while Iho Commercial iu/Mm / places it at 1,000,000,000 uohula. Leading grain dealers pro- iot that if frost holdu oil' for another jrtnight a crop of 1,500,0000,000 uahols will be assured. There is the same dilferonco ot pinion as to the probable demand for ur surplus crops in Kuropcan mar- ots. Thu bears declare that 10 crops abroad are abundant liilo the bulls announce that rought in one euction and rain in thcra have wrought huvoo with the rain. The most reliable reports in- iouto thai lliero will bo a foreign Jo- mud at good prices for whr.tovor sur < lus crops thu west can diiposo of. 'hosu ' who fear unusually low prices lusl not torgut that the amount of roadslulls which the country can pare this year will not be much irger than in 1880 , when the crop as lif-hter. The crops of 1880 fol- jwod Iwo years of heavy harvoM and irge surplusci , Our home consump- ion of wheat during the last two oara appears to have boon about 20,000,000 bushels each. The pruaont ear , with our iucreased population , . cannot fall much below 1)20,000,000 ) ushels. Kstimating our present 'heat harvest at 020,000,000 bushels , 'o shall have only 200,000,000 bush- Is for export which will easily be ab- jrbod by thu foreign demand. So there ii no reason on the part of ur farmers to fear that superabundant ropj will bo discounted by unusually hr pdccj. Thu figures of last year ill ecarcaly bo reached , but fifty con't heat and liftoon cent corn are things f the past in Nebraska. Local con- imption is much greater than it used 1 bo. Thu demand for corn for food- ig will ba larger than ever and the estern markets which are opened to ur states will call fur a constantly incasing - -casing supply of our breadstuff * . Each year is taking our product more and more out of the hands eastern speculators and making the lew dependent upon markets troubl by groal corners and alternate raised or depressed at the caprice millionaire operators. There will a demand for all of Nebraska's ran nificont harvest this year , and a d mand , if the nigns of the limes do ti fail , as prices which will bring o producers a rich reward al Iho frc of Iheir labors.

According to the reports the board levied contributions upoi the establishments for milk and butte for Iheir privalo use , decorated the ! homes with flowora from the gardens and appropriated some of its fund for the purchase of a statue o the surgeon general. Those delinquencies quencies wore first discovered by Sen ator Matt. Ouponter , of Wisconsin who moved Ihoir investigation by th leimto.

A SCANDALOUS VERDICT. Five out of eleven councilmen ha declared under oath that Daniel Angel ) , city marshal of Omaha , is r guilty of neglect of duty and violatl of the ordinances which he is requir to enforce. Inasmuch as a major ! of the entire council ( seven mombei did nol vole Iho marshal puilty 1 stands acquitted and will continue Iho head of our police force. A mo scandalous verdict was never rendon anywhere. Il is nol only a disgra lo Iho city council but an outrage upc the whole community. There h hari ly a man , woman or child in this ctl that docs not suffer more or less fro ; the reckless and criminal negligent of thu chief of police. II is a notor ous fact that our police force ia the ; oughly demoralised and has been prni tically no protection to thocommunil since Angcll hui been marshal , Thugf .hiovos , pickpockets and burglars har ) oldly carried on their vocations ur der Angoll's nose and a number of poi sons have lost their lives through hi allure to onforca law and order. On last Christmas morning Mi Jammer was murdered in a ualoo : within sight .ot police hcadqunrtorc ? ho saloon was running in full bias at 3 o'clock in the morning in dofianc of law , which requires the saloons t lese at midnight. It was not enl ; after midnight , but it waa Sunda ; morning. The evidence bcforo the coroner' ury , ot which Councilman Dunhar was a member , showed thai olho aloons wcro open after midnight am a gang of roughs wore carousing an isturbing the peace up to the time u ho murder. Now Mr. Dunhar.i , wh aprcsonts the moral and lavr-abidin lemont of the Fourth ward , as nombor of that coroner's jury , ren orcd a verdict witharecomraendalioi hat Mr. Troitsnhko's saloon license b evoked. But Mr. Dunham sittini nder oath on the trial of Marsha ingoll , votes not guilty on the char i liat Angoll allowed saloons to rui ftur midnight in violation of tin rdinancca. Does anybody bcliovi hat Hammer would have been inur cred if Angoll lud enforced the law low does Mr. Dunham reconcile hii erdict of not guilty with his con cionco when confronted ly his Tor- iot on the oSi'uiior'E jury In the Ham- Tie ? cane1/ / Againrecently u lawabiding citizen , Fred Lingo came lo his death in an ittompt to protect his property againtl : urglars. That man would have beer tllvo to-day if wo had a live Marshal. L'ho accidental death of Mead , whc 'oil from the tight rope , can justly bo aid at the door of Marshal An gull. [ Iml ho , onfojxed the oidmxncci Mead would not nave performed , but .ho moral , and law and order faction > f the council voted Angoll not guilty n the face of tha testimony , while Iho io-callod hoodlum councilmen voted 0 have him deposed , There are fully two hundred prosti- ules in this city , who ought to pay nontbly fines , which at an average of ivo dollAru per month would aggregate ? 12,000 a year , but the cilicicnt Mar- h.U only reported thirty-five prosti- utoa to thu police court , and the chool fund Is the loser of thousandn if dollars par annum. It was [ shown luring the trial that his deputy was rcquontly drunk and had been a con- tar.t violator of the law. This man had been Angoll'a dopty or iovonteun months , and Angcll was us boon companion in carousing and mmmini . But at the hut moment hia deputy tenders his roaignation ind Angoll is acquitted on the ground hat ho \ \ as not losponaiblo for the riminal conduct of this deputy , al- hough the law expressly holds the narshal responsible. In ordinary and purely political lonteets public men are excused for iding with each other. But when tion are on oath , sworn to render a ordiot according to evidence , and the acts are clear and overwhelming it is imply monstrous for them to vote 'not guilty" because their faction de- ires to eustuin ItRolf. The whole ommnnity , excepting perhaps the lutlaws mid burglars , will rcgaid thu .ccquitnl of Angell as a scandalous irocoeding that will expose our citi- OMB to fuithor raidj from the danger- ius classes. We liavo purposly re- rained from discussing the moriU of ho case during the trial iu order thut 10 charge could be made tint wo have ought to influence the verdict by iroseuro of public opinion. But wo tow feel it our duty to say to Mayor ) o > d that public safety donnmids a irompt change at the head of the lolice.
