The domocratlo governor of Wyoming
has returned from Rook Springs to
Cheyenne. Ho has thrown his dome
cratlo states rights ideas overboard and
enlisted for this war and the nozt. Thtro
is very little about his notions and utter
ances that smacks of Jeffarsonlsn sim
plicity. The valiant governor is as much
inclined to Imperial methods , bayonet
rule and gsg law as any executive wo
have hoard of for many a year. At hla
Instance troops are now stationed at the
coal mining camps in Wyoming in largo
numbers to over awn the whlto laborers.
Thcso troopi have been aont there under
the moat flimsy protoxt. A domocratlo
congress haa expressly prohibited the
use of federal troops except for the pur
pose of suppressing iniurreo-
tton actually in progress.
The troops now at Hook Springs and at
other points in Wyoming are there to-day
upon the requisition of a democratic gov
ernor under the pretext that they are
needed to protect the United States
malls in transit over the Union Pacific.
So far as wo know , nobody haa molested
the mall trains on the Union Pacific nor
IB there any likelihood of any train not
oven a gravel train or a coal train beIng -
Ing obstructed. The question now arises :
Is the regular army to bo used aa a polios
force for a great railroad comp nj ?
Not only has Governor Warren , of
Wyoming , acted contrary to all demo
cratic precedents in calling for troops ,
bnt ho haa gene out of his way to cham
pion the cauio of the Union Pacific. Ho
actually talks as If ho were ono of the
managers of the road. Governor War
ren la not at all backward in making
public hla own opinions and the present
and faturo Intentions of the Union
Pacific railroad comany. The Cheyenne
Leader , the ciliclal organ of hla excel
lency , prints three columns of his views.
The following extract will suffice :
"What do you thick the result of Ibis affair
will be ? "
"Well , sir , " said the governor , "tho labor
ing men have the whole matter oven yet , in
in their own hands , for good or evil to them
selves , I am eatufied that it is the policy of
the company , at present , to concentrate all
the Chinese in their employ at Reck Sprint ,
and to open the other mines to the white
miners who bavo not been engaged in Hock
Springs riots , and I believe further that It is
the dceire of the company to speedily get rid
of all Chinamen In its employ ,
and that it would have done so
long ago if it could have had its
work done without continual and annoying
strikes and broils by the worst element of the
white minors. From what I bavo gathered in
my intercourse with the officials of the road
I am satisfied that they would be glad to em
ploy white men exclusively , bat they will not
bo driven to it by the gun and fargot , and so
far as the road is concerned , the government
baa a lorious interest in it , not only financial
ly , but for the public service , the conveyance
of malls and other matter , and the full force
of the army would be brought to bear , If nec
essary , to protect everything which it is the
government's interest er duty to protect ,
It wonld seem from this that General
Manager Callawny who emphatically do- <
nled that Governor Warren was cither
controlled or Influenced by the Union Pa *
clfis , or under obligations to It , must have
been mistaken. Governor Warren's as
sertions would load ono to the opposite
conclusion. Ho certainly ads as if he
were stationed In Wyoming as the guar
dian of the railroad company rather than
as governor of the territory and the rep
resentative cf the national government.
Manager Callaway , who his come to the
governor's defense , may not know SB
ranch.about the mysterious influence )
that brought about his appointment as
somomon nearer the national capital. It h
right and proper that the governor should
maintain law and order In Wyoming ,
bnt It Is na part of his duty or baslnaas
to act as an assistant manager of tto
Union Pacific. The interest of the gov
ernment as a creditor of the Union Pacific
la In no way Involved in the mining busi
ness. The government Is not Inter
ested in maintaining a coal mining
monopoly In Wyoming or any-
hero else , The inside ring that or-
; anizjd the Wyoming mining monopoly
neb entitled to the privilege of employ-
ng federal troops as a police force. As
well might the cattle kings of Wyoming
mist upon having troops located to pro-
out homesteader ! from breaking
own their illegal fences. It la
ast as mash unlawful and
.gainst . public policy to allow
mo great corporation to monopolize the
ioal mines of Wyoming as It would bate
to permit the cattle barons to forca cut
honest cottiers from lands which are re-
lervod by the government for the home-
teador and pre-emptor. The civil
authorities of Wyoming are competent to
deal with tha murderers of Chinamen
utt as they are with the murderers of
white mon or of Indians. The attempt
to uao the army to terroriza working
people la a usurpation of power which
will demand congressional Investigation
and executive astlon on the put of the
The agile and agitated Omaha BEE brcomoa
very nervous over the fact that the honorable
postmaster-general bag selected leading dem
ocrats in tbo various counties of thli state , by
whom he can bo advised in respect to the
character and fitness of men who are to serve
tha people to the mails. It cannot BOO in thla
entirely right and democratic method ol
securing good and competent mon tor oui
postofllcos anything better than a machine
run by "bojsea" and "dictators" and worce
than that cf Tweed. It pretends to believe ,
what it does not believe at all , that tbia plan

Wo are not in the least agitated ,
Nobody connected with this papsr bni
cny ambition to become a fourth-cists 01
even e , lint-class poslnmtir. Wo hav <
no doslro to Influence iho choice of tb <
poalmaiter-goneral in the matter cf seleo
tloua of his subordinate ; . Wo do not It
the least envy the head boas of the Ne
braska machine. Wo are , supremely in
different as lo who has any patronage to
bestow on the hungry and thirsty demo
crats of Nebraika. Wo have not oven a
scintilla of sympathy for the republicans
who hold on to the offices , Wo believe
that the democrats are entitled to their
places and should fill them jast at soon
as they can conveniently do so without
serious injury to the public service. In
our comments on the Nebraska machine
wo have simply thrown some light upon
the peculiar mothoda'whloh ore being employed -
ployod in this atato in dltponalng postal
patronage. If the honorable postmaster-
general had selected the leading demo
crats of the different counties to advlio
with in regard to the fitness of candi
dates there would bo no occa
sion for any comment , but
the honorable postmaster general has
nothing whatever to do with the loading
democrats of the various counties. Ho
has sub-lot the entire contract to the firm
of bosios , who employ inb-contractora in
every county. These aub-contriotora are
a good deal like the Beckwlth & Qulnn
company They prefer Chinamen , who
o n do their bidding and ask no qucs
ttons. Thla is precisely the kind of ma
chine which wo have always opposed and
denounced as unropubllcin , and It scoma
to us aa much undemocratic aa It waa
formerly unropubllcao. Our motto has
alwaya been , "Smash the Machine. "
The board of. education reminds us
very much of the young man who la
always going to reform on the next Now
Year's day. Every season wo rj prem
ised radical reform in the matter of
methods and teachers. Wo are always
assured that the board will drop all in
competent teachers and barnacles who
have been foisted upon the schools be
cause they Lava influential relatives.
Bnt when the school year opens wo find
that the board la traveling the same old
rut. The barnacles somehow have re
tained their hold and the promised reform
has boon poatponod another year.
Now it seems to us that the
the board ahoold bo governed In ita
conduct by business principles. If a
manufacturer employs a superintendent
or foreman he looks to him for the effi
ciency of the workmen In his charge. If
mechanics or laborers are to bo employed
the foreman is not only consulted but
usually given absolute power to make the
selections. 1C the foreman objects to
employing any subordinate ou the ground
of Inefficiency , or for other reasons , the
employer does not attempt to override
his decision. To do BO would bo de
structive of all discipline. If the manu
facturer has not confidence n the judg
ment of his superintendent ho hires an
other man. Any other course would be
suicidal In business.
If discipline and parfect harmony are
essential between factory hands and their
foreman how much more essential is it
that there should bo perfect discipline In
the public schools and harmony between
teachoru and the superintendent. If
teachers cm say that the influence which
they exert on tho'board can overrule the
superintendent , all dlsclpliuo la at an
end. The name might be said with ro'
gard to methods. To insure efficiency
the superintendent musi have absolute
power In devising the methods of instruc
tion and classification. If the board takes
it into its own hands to override the
superintendent by electing teachers whom
ho does not recommend , or overrules bla
recommendations as to methods , It may
aa well dispense with the services of a
Wo bollovo in the one-man power In
the management of the schools , as in the
management cf an army , a railroad , era
a newspaper. If the man at the head la
incompetent ho should go. Hie func
tions of the board of education ore aim
ply those of corporation directors. It
has general supervision and Is expected
to find the means for carrying on the
business of popular education. The se
lection of school sites , the erection of
school houses , the purchass of supplies ,
and the payment of teocberannd janitors
are exclusively within the province of the
loird ,
The power to elect the superintendent
, lso vestt the board with general control
if the whole system. Beyond that it la
unsafe to go without incuriing the risk
f demoralizing the aohcola by the do
itrnotlou ot discipline.
Wo lay this much booauao wo are anx-
ons to have the schools of Omaha rank
with the bsst in the laud. This can nevtr
bo nntll all barnao'.oj are dispensed with ,
and the whole responsibility for teachers ,
mothods.and discipline la placed upon the
of the superintendent.

Wyo. , Sept. 2. The ptogra'mme orlgl
nallr dollgnatod for this week was i light
ly disarranged by the stormy weather o ;
Monday , bat othorwlso proceeded In the
order Isld down , Whllo the white cm
vas tents remained to designate the cam ]
the battalion has marched oat each da ]
equipped with their arms , their shelto
tents and their haversacks , containing a
meal , to execute the evolutions for the
day , all of which have been meat satle
faotorlly executed nnd presented a vor ;
pleating sight to wltnots , There ha
been no break in the peace and harmony
of the camp , and even the coir
boys have roa trained their rostlvo spirit
and though they generally come nroncc
to vlorr the parades , have made no hoi til
demonstrations. The soldiers vitit their
fr lends of the "Gormanta , " who dispenses
beer nud lunch , bnt the hilarity of lili
viands lends not to the guard houao , one
the prim sentry has no prisoner to divide
his attention from thogrtz'ng ' mnler.
Wo expect the paymaster soon to re
plenish onr pockets , which are voiy
scantily supplied at present with tbo
requisite inducements to make our "Get
rcnuia" fiiend pasi the foaming beer
over the counter and quench the thlrs
Induced by six or eight hours absence on
drill. The weather i very cold at nigh
nud being limited for fuel , as soon alter
dusk as our fires go oil- * , the soldier hleo
himself to his tent and wrapping his mar
tlal coat and hi ) fovr blankets arounc
him , lies down to such slumber as lirtc
nature and the old allows. With dif
ferent tents and a few camp stoves wo
might have been moro comfortable oven
in the coldest or wettest weathor. Nex
week wo shall conclude the balance ol
onr autumn manoeuvres and then march
back to our respeottvo posts for winter
quarters unless rcqulroi to guard the
"Heathen Ghnoi ! > " or Interview the
marauding Indians. , HOWAUD ,
Col. Henry , inspector of the rlb !
practice , has returned from Fort Snclllng.
Ho lo satisfied with the work done by
the Platte team , considering the fact
the mon had to shoot on ground unknown
to them , and from a change of climate ,
nufforod much from cold. Last year the
Dakota toim , which now only ranks the
Platto. failed at Fort Lavenworth to get
a slngln man In the team , Lieut. Goodin ,
Seventh infantry , won the Robertson
medil , given at Fort Snolllng , and ranch
coveted on account of its great bauty.
Sergt. Mayo , of the Seventh Infantry ,
won the Kansas City Times' medal , and
Sergts. Weeks nnd Pedorjon , of tbo
Fifth and Seventh infantry , the U. S.
medals. So the team ara content , and
feel that if Dakota came hero matters
wonld bo reversed. "While at Chicago
Col. Henry called on Gen. Schofiold , and
ImpreiEod him with the Importance of
having a range at Ohlcigo , where all the
teams from the different departments
could come and compete on equal terms.

The story ot John W. Maokop'a baying
the Nenr York Herald , or rather , a > the
original liar tnld , "taking it for debt , "
has boon appropriately srjtjolchod. That
wns perhaps the silliest cauntd of the
season. Right hero it ought to be said
that there Is moro nonsense written about
John Mnckoy than perhaps nny other
rich man in America. Mott cf the twad *
die about his wealth Is the veriest ro
mance. Ho ii In troth very rlob , richer
than almost any American who , without
thonld ofsoch ndvantigos as may oomo
from pttro chance , can over hope to be
come , bnt the fashion thot many have of
ranking Maokoy with the Monte Otlstcs
of the earth is nbiurd. There nro scores
of men in America richer than Mackoy ,
nnd who hawo their wealth better In
vested and moro In hand. The great
bonanzi firm reached the climax of Its
golden romance in 1876 Their stocks in
the bonanz mines were then worth per
haps $100,000,000. The mines In which
they had n controlling Interest were payIng -
Ing $2,000,000 n month , but thla wont
gradually down , and wont rapidly. That
firm , as n firm , never realized moro
than $300,000 a month profit , This was
enough to glvo romance to the silver cave ,
nnd U It hid hold out In treasure It would
no doubt have made Maokey , Flood ,
Fair and O'Brien the richest people on
the oarth's surface Bat It did not hold
out. O'Brien died In 1878 , while theio
stocks nero yet pay I tic ; dividends , nnd
while their market value was yet away
up. His stocks were disposed of at mar
ket r to , yet his whole cstata nettled up
bat § 9,000,000. Every bonanzk interest
tumbled after that. Its stocks , stamp
mills , wood and water Interests nnd all
went to the dogs. Maokoy , It Is well
known , had twlco what his other part-
nara had. Therefore , if ho had died in
pKco of O'Brien , at the tlmo tha latter
did , his cstato would have coma to $20-
000,000 or thoreobou'o. ' That was the
very climax of bonanzi wealth. Mr.
Mackoy never was richer than § 20,000-
000 on paper. Ho his been kuown as
the poorest investor of any of the bonan
zi firm. Ho never yet undo sr Invest
ment , except In government or state
bonds , which yielded a dollir of income.
All his rpeculativo Investments have como
to naught. Ho gives away v > ut sums ,
squanders other vast sums , nnd wo all
know what Mrs. Mnkoy accom
plishes in the way of expenditure.
Ono day , In front of the Nevada bank.
In Siri Francisco , Mr. Mickey road in a
paper hauiod to him an abuird statement
thvt Mra. Mackoy had oddred to bup the
Are do Trlompho , In Parl , for 2,000,000
francs. "You m y oay , " said John W. ,
in his broad North of Ireland accent ,
"that Mri. Mackoy Is no fool and neither
is John Mackoy. That is a dom Ho sor.
An' you may say , mon , that if John
Mackey was fool enough to pay for that
arch or any other arch , begad , ser , ho
bo don't know where In h the money's
oomln from. They've bled mo , ser , llko
a lot of wolvcR. They say Mrs. Mackey
has spent a half-million a year In Europe.
It's a dom lie , sor. She lives llko a
lady , and I want her to do so , bntbogad ,
$50,000 a year pays all her exponsBBballa
and all , for a whola year. Tno said the
other day she spent $50.000 on a single
ball to Grevy or somebody Gad knows
who ho Is but that Is a He , sor. She
don't spend $50,000 in a whole year In
Paris. Say that , will you , sot ? "
Mr. Mackoy was sincere in tbis. Mrs.
tfackey Is not near the spendthrift that
a nambar of romance writers try to make
lor out. Yet John's ova admission that
ler expenditures wera $50,000 a year , or
hereabouts , is enough to make worker B
