THE Lincoln Journal continues to di

THE professional beggar ia sometime
wealthier than thn porso ;

Connecticut , recently , for vagrancy , am
upon his ragged person was found tin

the last presidential convention hat
boon hold , and that the entries in the
race for the white house had boon
closed , but now wo are informed that we
are to have n woman in the field , MM.
Bolva Lockwood , who has boon nomina
ted for president by the woman's nation
al equal rights party in convention
assembled at San Francisco. Mrs.
Lockwood like all other candidates has
written her letter of acceptance. She
ought to receive the vote of the women
of Wyoming , Utah , and Washington
IT is stated that among the persons
who have profited by the school land
frauds ono man in Lincoln has made
$28,000 cash in the Lincoln land ring
deal in school land leases. Ho ia not the
only ono that has fraudulently made
thousands of dollars , and all thia has
occurred under the noses of Governor
Dawos and Secretary of State Koggon ,
who are members of the board of public
lands. Yet the republican state con-
vontlon by the ronomination of these
ofliciala has endorsed their administra
tion. Is it any woudor that the honest
ropublicana of Nebraska roaont ( his in-
suit to their intelligence and manhood ?
Heir can they consistently endorse the
action of the convention by voting for
such men ?
A I'KTmrm has bcon presented to the
city council niguod by fifty-ono persona ,
calling themselves merchants , praying for
the removal of the peanut and fruit
Btands from the sidewalks and street cor
ners. It is hoped that the council will
promptly lay the petition under the ta
ble. The proprietors of these Btands
certainly injure no one's business , and in
the majority of cases they cither pay a
small rental to the property owners for
the privilege of displaying their fruits in
front of their promises , or else are grant
ed permission without charge. In no
instance are they regarded as trespassers
by the property owners who
lave granted thorn this privilege ,
Thoynro perhaps trespassers upon the
sidewalk to a limited oxtont.butour side-
wnlka are from sixteen to twenty foot
wide and those elands , occupying only
about four feet , can hardly bo called ob
structions. The fruit stands are all kept
in a neat and attractive manner , and add
i3uch to the metropolitan appoarauco of
the city. They are allowed in all other
cities , and there is no reaaon nhy they
should ba disturbed in Omaha. Tlio
ownera are poor people , and to compel
them to vacate their variouo locations
would seem like oppression. If a cloth
ing inerchiut , a trunk maker , or a grocer
has the right to occupy four foot of the
sidewalk for the display of his oods ,
there is no reason why a fruit dealerwith
the permission of the properly owner ,
should not enjoy the same privilege. Wo
cannot sue what object there is to bo
gained by the fifty-ono petitioners in hav
ing thu fruit stands removed.
LOOK TO j'OUJl S
The most important slop in the loc
campaign In Nebraska Is yet to bo tnki
by the people. The republicans ha
comroUtcd a fearful blunder in the non
nation of the weakest state ticket tli
was over pur up in Nobrnakn , but it
not yet too late to remedy some of t
mistakes tli.il have been made. It i
mains to bo seen whether the state cc
trnl commilleo will do its duly in tl
matter. The stale lickot was nomin ;

they will endeavor lo manipulate bo
parties. In a democratic district tin
will try to secure the nomination ot
railroad democrat , and in a republic ;
district they will work for the nomin

very evident why the railroads are i
anxious to olcct their own henchmen

I bank of Beaten has bogur

lave been condemned by those whc
bought they perfectly understood tb
ndian problem , but ho has mostly hat
lis way because his superiors had thi
; oed sense to trust his experience am
udgmont. There was much difficulty i
oar at o when ho in
isted on admitting the Chi
acahua Apaches , who had surrender-
d to him in the Sierra Madre , aftoi
ommitting horrible atrocities , to the Sar
Jarloa reservation with the othcra whc
ad remained peaceably behind , thougl
Irook' advice was taken in the end. UJ

mt made his name a synonym for all
mt was horrible nnd ropulstvo in the In-
inn character , nnd rendered it hard tea
a justice to hia natural sense of honor
id robust virtues.
Crook found that Ponn's method was
i olliciont to-day tis when that shrewd
uakor first practiced it at Philadelphia.
In dealing with the Apache , " says ho ,
jontlonoaa , patiunco , intelligence , truth
id honesty nro essentials. " For years
i reflected how host to regulate Iho tur-
ilont spirits who would roaiat innovation
id attempts of diciplino or restraint of
wlcssnosa Family , with oome tnisRiv
us , ho adopted the plan at arraigning
lenders against mombcra of their own
Ibes before native juries , who were in-
ructod in the olimontary principles of
t ? mid legal procedure. The results
vo exceeded expectation. Their invcs-
jations have boon thorough and the
inisomont just and prompt. In ono res-
ct the Apiuhe juryman was found bo
ud hia civiluod brother he was never
lovvn to bo bribed.
Crook first applied hia policy to the
laches in 1873 , 74 and 75 , but during
i removal from the department of An
na , for some years , the good results ho
d attained were nullified by the acts of
urks in the posts of Indian agents and
oir abettors , who plundered the Indt-
3 right and loft , until the latter lost nil
nfldonco in the government and were
the brink of an outbreak. It required
, of Cook's tact and inlluonco to keep
om at peace till an adjustment could bo
ido. lie bellovos that had there not
on such an interruption of their pro-
osi in the path of civilization , the
jiachca would now , nt least mnny of
om have been fairly well qualified t
oaivo the olaotivo franchise , or , with
tlo doubt , have been solf-supporting
d Kouwally prosperous. Crook finds
o Aiiacht-a now beginning to bo anxious

Jiioy. To ha\o nwakenoU such

lion , ho presents an extraordinarily
iing case , and seeina to have demon-
atcd the possibility of making peace * .
