its facilities for collecting and publishing

has recently been reorganized and in-
croaked , and every department will hence
forth be in tlio hands' of experienced
men. Those improvements and changes
have not been made for the mere pur

matter of neeos.stty to meet the rapid
growth of our circulation , which at the

phenomenal. It has simply kept pace
with the growth of Omaha and Nebraska.

'Tho Umpire Stale.
The presidential election of 1891 : was
decided by the vote of the state of Now
York. Although the state government ,
with its vast machinery , was in the hands
of the domocraqy , Sir. liluinc would have
carried Now York by a very handsome
majority had he received the undivided
republican support. This year , as in
1884 , ho independents wilt hold the bal
ance of power , and they will decide the
contest. The republicans have very'
wisely chosen candidates whom re
publicans of all shades and
factions will cheerfully support. All
classes of republicans , and a good many
who were once republicans and are so no
longer , speak of the ticket with approval
and with a good deal of enthusiasm.
The New York Tunes , which led the re
publican revolt against Mr. Blaine last
year , declares that Mr. Davenport is
generally acknowledged to be entirely
worthy of the governorship , that his pure
und upright character , his candor and
fairness , his fidelity to a high standard
of public ditty , , his ample experience and
trained intylligencjG.arp well known , and
that there is absolutely no reasonable
fault lo bo found with him , and the dem
ocrats are as free to own that fact as the
republicans are to claim it. Gen.
Carr , who "has been nominated for
the second place on the ticket ,
is the present secretary of state ,
which office he has tilled to the satisfac
tion of all. Ho is a. very popular man
and a shrewd politician. His name adds
strength to the ticket , and it is admitted
in all quarters that Davenport and Curr
are almost invincible , oven when matched
against the most popular men the demo
crats could name ,
In the face of such a strong nomina
tion , which oven Mr. Dorshcimer , in the
New York Star , pronounces unexcep
tionable , the democrats with their ten
dency to blunder have nominated a
ticket which the independents resent
with indignation. GovornorIIill forced
himself at the head of the ticket by tlio
maohino lubricated with state patronago.
Mr. Hill , who by the way Is an accidental
governor , is the representative of that
clement of the democracy which bitterly
opposes reform in the civil service and
believes in the spoils policy. Ilis
nomination is regarded almost us
a rebuke to the policy of
President Cleveland , although thu
democratic platform commends Cleve
land's administration. Mv. Hill's nomi
nation Is given out as a great victory for
Tammany , and that repels a largo ele
ment of the moro respectable democracy. .
Whore there were republican mugwumps
in 1884 , there will bo democratic mug-
wumps in 1885. To cap the climax of
blundering the democrats gave the second
end place on their ticket to Hoswoll P.
Flower , ' who was a candidate for the
presidential nomination last year.
Mr. Flower is very ambitious ,
but lie could hardly afi'ord
to accept the empty bauble of tv
lieutoiiant-guvcrnor , after ho had aimed
for the highest place In the gift of the
nation. The real objcet'of compliment
ing Mr. ITowor with this nomination was
not BO much a deslro lo do him honor us
it was to draw on him for thu campaign
fund , Now that Mr , Flower refuses to
play monkey for Mr. Hill and doolinos to
pull hot chestnuts out of the tire , the
democracy finds itself In an awkward di
lemma , It has entered the campaign
in an oil-year , when tha party jvoku
rests lightly on the neck of the masses ,
handicapped and demoralized. What
ever may bo done Jo fill Mr. Flower's
place wilt not materially help , matters.
TJio ropublicana uro united , and deter
mined to 1-cgaiti.theirlost prestige. They
have the assurance now that the prodi
gals of last year will return even if there
is no fatted calf to bo killed. The demo
crats uro distracted and cannot pos
sibly command their full strength.
The hurmony patched up between the
factions _ ut Saratoga is a mere inusquc-
rado. Tie | mgstTisspectablo elements of
( ho democracy will Bulk in their tents
undlettio-party go to defeat this fall ,
rather titan to help tlio tuolls-huutera
and oppmoiU.3 ( of thendiuinistratlou. .

Columbia 'section Upon the -standard of
tlio Union Pacifio. It i now stated that
the Uritisli Columbia sct-liou falls fur
thort of lids standard nnd tlu govern
ment will have to allow the company thi
n-mount neccKsary to bring th roadbed
lip to the standard required by I ho origi
nal agreement. Tito Canadians 'have
been In the habit of pointing to the
United States with dctiMoii and drawing
contrasts between the conduct of
their own a flairs and thn dishon
esty of American methodThe
Canadian Pacific ring 1ms deVdopoit
more scandal in tho. Dominion than the
Credit Mobillcr hits hUhe United States.
The Canadians , however , have to paUern
nftor tliu Union Pacific , and their road
fails to como up lo oven that standard.
The idea that the Canadian government
must now advance money to the mana
gers of Iho road to futlUl theli' obliga
tions would indicate that the road has
fallen into the hands ot some of the bank'
cashiers.who'have left this country and
located in Canada. .
VILAS has de
fined oll'ensivo purtlsanscip. with -refer-
cnck to democratic' editor * . Ho-Mtyg. Uinl
lo bo thf owner of a democratic nowa/
paper does not in itself constitute a cane
of otltmsUo partisanship. The postmas
ter or other federal official may , with
poifoct propriety , conduct a partisan
journal , only hu must not be too promi
nent. about it ; that is to say , he may
uhuso Iho republicans a little , but nol leO
much , or ho may , if ho keeps the matter
to himself and plays thojiypoorite , say
what ho pleases about politics , and then
palm oft' the oll'ensivo utterances on hit *
partners. The editors of Nebraska and
Iowa democratic papers will please take
notice and govern themselves according
ly. If they wish to bo really offensive
it would bo advisable , to transfer their
wives or some other relative.
P-u.VmiR fires have swept over a vast
extent of territory in Dakota , destroying
many farm houses and the season's
crops. In the grazing regions the grass is
destroyed and cattle will sull'or. It is
staled that the course of the fires could be
discerned all along 125 miles of railroad ,
and in some cases tho'liro is known to
havn extended twenty miles from Iho
track. The scene is described as being
of utter blackness as far as the eye could
reach. The loss by these fires will prob
ably run up into the millions.
TIIR Iowa campaign is progressing
very quietly. The heavy guns of both
parties wcro tired-oft' with a heavy charge
of powder and very little shot. The
noisu was deafening , but the cft'ect was
not perceptible. The republicans have
good reason to feel confident , and therefore -
fore they are not. making extraordinary
oxurtions. The democrats still profess
to bo hopeful , but their cheerfulness is
artificial. The indications are that Iowa
will go-republican by the usual majority.
WE are on the'ovoof a great revolution
in the matter of fast travel. An aeronaut1
made balloon trial trip's 'in ' Paris' ' last
wcok , und demonstrated that he could
steer an air-ship in any direction nt will.
The balloon ascended and descended ,
stopped in mid-air , and finally returned
to it starting point. The steering appa
ratus is said to bo very costly , but oven if
it cannot bo used for ordinary travel , it
must become a v.cry important factor i n
future military operations. _
ACCORDING to an exchange "ex-Lieut.
Gov. John B. Finch , of Iowa , lias just
made fourteen spccchea in Ohio for Leon
ard and prohibition , ivnd ho says Leon
ard will get anywhere from W,000 to
75,000 votes. " This must Ire our own
John IJ. , of Nebraska. How he got
the pump-hand lo to his name is some
thing wo cannot accout for. It is quite
natural , however , to have a pump-handlo
where there are ao many persons who
take nothiutj but wato'r.
LlKUTKNANT GttKKLKY is' to luiVO a
grand reception on his arrival in Scot
land. Geographical societies and scien
tists generally are vicing with each other
to do him honor. In his cuso the adage
that n prophet Is without honor in
his own country is again verified. Lieuten

which tuxes mortagos , bonds , accounts

lea would relieve Ihn honest lux-payers
and moro especially the owners of real

Tun bankers have hpld their conten

IT is understood that President Cleveland -
land prevented Gen , lloseoraus from
taking the stump In Ohio. Ho advocates
federal neutrality in state contests , if. is
said , but some persons may think thht ho
has helped the Ohio democracy by keep-
i ing old liosy at Ids desk In Washington.

Saturday , nt 8HO : n. hi. , this devotional
( xcruUus , le < l . .bjHov. . C. Moessner , wore
of deo.p interest. At ! ) o'clock the synod
was called to order , the roll eall fallowing
a number of now clerical and lay dele
gates present. The roadhifj of parochial

The whitewash < "ouiniiltei } appointed
b.y tlio dity council met again Saturday.
The first wiliifv was II. W. llard.v , who
testified l < t seeing fccvunit gambling de
vices running during fair week , purlieu-
larly ono at tlio corner of I1 and Sou-nth
htrccls. Ho notified the police , anil they
promised to look into this miiUi-r , bui It
\\asiiot ! mmrdintidsitumled lo. .Mr.
Billiiigfclej , th chairman , : iskcil Mr.
Himly lo make 11 formal charge. Id the
Committee ! \iul It would be considered.
Tlio following charge \vsis then Hied :
LINCOLN' , Sept. 'M , IbStf. I hereby
charge tlio entire police I'oreo of thu city
of Lincoln , eaoli and every member of it ,
with nctfleel of duly in this , that they
allowed the saloons of tlio oily lo
run Inter than hnlf pa" ! 10 o'clock
at night during the week I'ndlnjrSeploiu-
Iwr 17 , IBS , ! . ( Signed ) 11.V. . HAKDV.
TluuioNl. witness was William Davis ,
who testified lo nol seeing any of Iho city
policemen drunk within I hi ; past I hive
months. IlMI.S not shown thai Iho wil *
lies' * was especially looking for drunken
policemen , but his evidence created an
immediuto sentiment of congratulation
among the we.ll wishers of the police ring
and Its friends.
Foroy Knsign and Charles Douglas
both leslilied that they hud policemen -
mon asleep on their heats. Several other
men testified that they had seen drunken
policemen in the city during the past
month. The committee then concluded
its labors for the day by adjourning until
to-day , when it. will make up its report.
Two of the policemen whom It is Mild arc
under the ban huvo left the city for a
time. They will doubtless lo dis
charged and have taken this menus
of leaving without tiny investigation of
their individual conduct. They .seem in
clined not to tustify to anything about
the jail delivery , and up to this lime the
committe.n seem ( Irmly convinced that
the escape of the men was a
sort , of providential delivery , possibly to
injure the "county and city immunity
from expense in prosecuting the. crooks.
Il was stated in yesterday's Journal that
the WEB reporter was wanted to testify
before the committe , but nosnbpoana has
ever been served on that individual , and
not the ( .lightest etl'orl made to have him
appear be torn thu committee.
Judge 0.1 * . Maon returned yesterday
from Aurora , the county scat of Hamilton
county , where he. appeared a ? attorney
for the railroad company in the case of
Win. C. VVcntu , administrator foi-Augiist
Goldman , deceased , vs. the. ISurlington
Ochlman some months ago. Ochlnian
was iti the employ of an elevator com
pany , and while lie was miguged shoving
a car on the track \ip to the elevator the
yard engine butted two cars against the
one Oehhnan was moving , thus killing
him almost instantly. The company's
defense was contributory negligence 'on
the part of tho.dcceased. After several
' ( lays' , 'trial ? the ; 'jury disagreed. Thcy
Mood on their Imnl ballot nine for the
plaintiff and throe for the defendants.
This is equivalent to u victory for the
defense. The judge is to bo congratu
lated on his successful management , as
public sentiment was vry mucii opposed
to the corporations , as is usual in such
Mr. Hall , superintendent of the Sioux
City & Pacific. railroad , u branch of the
Chicago & Northwestern , has been spending - '
ing several days in Lincoln , looking after
the matter of right of way and
depot location for that road in Lincoln.
II is safe to say that inside of six months
the Chicago & Northwestern railroad will
have a line in here. Its route will bo
over the line which was laid out ior the
Lincoln & Fremont railroad some years
ago. This will give the Llncolnites com
munication with ( he lumber and coal
regions of the north and northwest , the
very thing they have so much needed
these many years. Whether they will
ask aid remains to be seen , though the
general impression is that they will not.
The coining of the Northwestern U met
with more enthusiasm by the citix-cn taxPayer -
than is the advent of Iho Missouri
Payer railroad , while a largo number
favor both road" . Some fool that the
Missouri Paeilio has flighted Lincoln by
passing within twenty miles with her
main line for the past three years mid

Work on the extension of the street
railway was resumed to-day. They are

The citizens along the truck have subscribed -
scribed $ -JfiiK ) . The work on the tt
street division will bo resumed shortly.
The donations on that branch amount lo
$8.000. Itoun easily be seen that Lin
coln citizens give liberally to any and all
public enterprises of merit ,
Judge Reuse , of the supreme court , is
making arrangements to spend the winter
with his fanily in Lincoln. Thu judge i
compelled lo do this owing to the largq
increase jn tha number of cusod i pending

The Knights of Labor have a large or

is that one person , u lawyer and a jtistico

Sun Miguel county , Now Mexicowhich
is as largo as two or three New Hnghind
slates pul logetlu-r , writes * u correspond'
cnl , never had u fair until lust week , nnd
it is predicted lhat it will be > omc tlmo
before it him another. About six weeks
ago three or four Miloonkeupers con
celved the idea lhat an exposition would
ben good thing lo luuv , and thu.v imme
diately'effecti'd an organization and put
out their advertisements. The announce *
menls iHd not go into de.tnil , as that was
not onl.y impossible but unnecessary
They pimply stated that the lirst annual
fair and exposition of San Miguel county
would lie liold at Santa Kasa during the
week of September 7 , and ( hat pri/.es
would be yiven for the. bust agricultural ,
mineral , Mock , and domestic
well us for luces of various kind * .
When Iho momentous day arrived the
committed had unclosed a piece of ground
just ( -oiidi of town , on which a t w sheds
had been erected , and their s.iloons weio
well filled with good : ) , which it was ex
pected would find ready sale. On Sun
day a man arrived with an assortment of
centipedes , and demanded thu first prize.
He. was duly entered , and , after tome
p-.irleying , was per.iuaded to wait until
the cud ot ihu fair before taking the rib
bon. That evening half n do/.tm cow
boys reached town with a herd of cattle ,
which , they .said , had been run oft'from
their ranch for purposes of exhibition ,
and could not no kept here a week.
Other exhibitors ( aim ; in during the
night , and by Monday tluiro was moro
colinnotion in town than had been s-eon
here before in years. That day was a
busy one at. thn fair grounds. The com-
mittco found the exhibitor.- * unpleasant
customers and very dtllleult to please , > o
that when the sun went down the ex
hibits were not in much bolter order
than thuyworoi.i thu morning. Besides
thc- ) iiiiplGiisantnG.soc.1 , it began to bo
feared that a inNtnko had been made
somewhere. The committee had calcu
lated on a big attendance from the. Mexi
cans living in the counlry back of here ,
and it was thought thatthero might be a
good many of I lie boys from the minis
and ranches round about in town , but as
Tuesday udumccd it was found that ev
ery man who came to ( own hud an ex
hibit , and this shut oil * the revenue of the
fair association. In an evil hour the .man
who wrote the bill added a line to * this
effect : \r

AH day Tuesday men poured into the
place with exhibits , until the fair groituus
looked like the barnyavd of a prosperous
farmer. Kvoryhody went in and out at
will , and the doorkeeper iw darkness
gather that evening without having yet
lelt of a dollar. Things were getting
pretty serioub in , town- for there were
prized to pay , and , though the saloons
wore doing a good busincs's , it had not
been contemplated for a moment that
their receipts should be used to reward
the enterprise of the exhibitors. Late
that night ti committee got together and
discussed tlio situation. It was nearly
daylight when the members adjourned ,
'but a deeSsioit'hsrtl Ueeii urriv'dd at. The
exhibitors wore to bo forced to leave their
goods on tins grounds or pay gate money.
it had been me practice'ot ' scores ol tuo
attendants to put their property on exhi
bition und then withdraw it in the eve
ning for their own use. Several men had
ordinary wagons and horses on exhibi
tion , and many of the Cowboys had eH-
tercel their revolvers , saddles , or ponies.
On Wednesday the tirSt man who pre
sented himself as an exhibitor had a span
of mules and an old wagon. lie was in
formed that unless lie was willing to
leave the outfit on the grounds until the
olid of the week , ho could not havu an ex
hibition ticket. This satisfactory to
side of Texas. " All accepted the condi
tions and went in. Evonmgfouud pretty
much everybody and everything on the
grounds and no money in the gatekeep
er's hands. Wheu the exhibitors came
lo leave , the great majority of them were
willing to trust tjio management with
their property , particularly those who
had live stock. Tlio committee found it
necessary that evening to invest in hay
and oats to the extent of a ten dollar bill ,
and after things wore fixed for the night
they met again to discuss the situation.
Thu time was rapidly approaching when
something had 'to be. done. . bevorul
prizes hail already been awarded , though
not yet paid , and a cowboy to whom had
loou given lirst prhio for ruling was cele
brating his victory by getting gloriously
In this extremity Hank Lane , who had
been at county fairs in thu east had an
inspiration , lie told his associates that
in many of the fairs in the states thu
prines consisted simply of ribbons. They
gave u certain color for first priy.o , an
other color for second priy.o , and another
for third. Ho had forgotten the colors
used but it would make no dillorunco ,
. "All that wo need , " hu said , "is lo put
on a little cheek uud we'll gut out of this
scrape in a very creditable way. Wo'll
give 'em all prizes and it won't cost us
| j. "
Thu others thought ( hero might bo a
chance of the thing working , but it was
clear that they had thulr misgivings , it
was agreed to try the thing on and Lane
was commissioned to do the job. Ho
purchased groeii , yellow und red ribbons
iliu thing in the morning , and when
I lie crowd UBMMiiblcd on the grounds hu
mounted a largo barrel and said :
" 1 have the honor , on behalf of the
