ArcoHniNO to a Washington special
to ( he UKK , no postmasters in Nebraska
have as yet boon loaiovod for ofl'onsive

character of republican poslmaslors in

IF the Nebraska railway commistion-
orfi had any HPIISO of shame they would

commissioners , however , seem to bo
brass-mounted and lost to all senjo of
decency , lint the limn i.s coming when
the people will bury the railroad com
mission law beyond resurrection.
IN all probability among thu very llr-t
bills to be passed by congress will bo one
lo provide for the performance of duties
as president in case of death , resignation
or inability ot both president anil vice
president , as wall as to provide for the
proMdcnlial election nount. The nueess-
ty of such a bill has been forcibly pro-
Hunted by recent eventn , and it is vt :
likely that the Hoar bill will be pas'-
together with the Edmunds bill tor tlP
presidential count , which Senator Ed
munds proposes to att.ich to the Hoar
bill as an amendment.
Tun malignant spirit which character
izes tlio conduct of the Lincoln Journal
ti8 tiMial manifests itself in regard ( o ( lie
charges concerning Iho construction of
the now insane asylum at Norfolk. It re
fers lo the charges as "slanders of the
JJiCK , " The Journal well knows Unit the
Itr.r. has made no charges , bul has simply
called attention to charges made by clti-
zcn.i of Norfolk who have substantiated
their statements by nflldavits. These
statciiionts and aflulavits have not been
solicited by the UKK , but have been pub
lished at Iho request of citi/oii : ) of Norfolk -
folk , who desire that Iho insane asylum
shall bo honestly constructed. Thu taxpayers -
payers of the state desire Iho same thing ,
and Ihe agitation of this mutter will no
, doubt result in securing a much butter
building than nothing hail been said
and the whole matter had boon allowed
togd by default. The most careful in-
.spcction should be o\eresid ! ; in the con-

furs to Omaha as a little cross-roads town
and a village , ami protests against Ibis
city being made a port of entry. In view
of the fact that ( lie last Nebraska state
census gavu Omaha a population of
01,000 , vvhilu thu Colorado btato census
gave Denver in round nnmbure 57,000 , , it
coiner with poor grace for any Denver
paper to nttcmpi to ridicule Omaha by re-
furring to it us a cro s.roads town or a
village. Omaha is not as handsome a city
as Denver It i.s true , but that she is a
larger city , is cluing more business , and
growing more ! rapidly than Denver is a
fact that cannot bo disproved. It is only
aquc.slion of llmo when Oinahit will be
even a moru beautiful place than Denver ,
and leave her so far buliind In population

While there is jiul ground fur indigna
tion over this outrageous decision , it U
only what might have been nxiicclod. In

every republican judge ca-l his vole for
Hayes auiMVhecler It' the national su
preme court could not rise above politics in
a crisis which brought the country to the
\orgc of civil war , it Nnot surprising that
the democralii : judge.ot Ihu supreme
( , 'Otirt of Ohio have elo-etl their eyes ami
ears lo the glaring election fraudami
pronounced in favor of the democratic
candidates who were in the minority.
The decision ol the supreme court , of
Ohio only serves to confirm the sound
ness of the views held by ire founders of
our government- with regard to the ex-
elusion of the judiciary from ( ho exercise
of political power ami functions In
creating three eo'-ordinatn branches of
government , a very broad line was drawn
by the framers ol the federal conslituti on
between tlio legislative , executive and
judiciary branches of the government.
Congress was made the sole jutlgu of the
election and qualifications of its own
members. With this prerogative no court
lias ever been allowed to interfere. If any
election frauds or bribery are resorted to
in tlio election of any congros-man or
senator , the hon-e in which he sucks ad
mission is the proper and only tribunal
that can pass upon the right of any mem
ber to his seat. NV > supreme court has
in or dared lo interpose its mandates to
order election certilieates to lie issued to
candidates , and any fc'deral judge that
would venture lo interpose in .such a po
litical uouUfet , would bo promptly im
peached ami rcmovodf The principles
embodied in the national constitution
with regard to the division of the func
tions and powers of the co-ordinate
branches of government are incorpo
rated in every slate constitution The
legislature of every -tali ; is the solo
judge of the election and qualitications
of its own niiuibiM's , and it. only can
rightfully pass upon the title of any
member to his seat. A eerlilleato after
all is only prima facia evidence of the
title , but by no nuans conclusive. The
only authority which the courts
should bo allowed to exorcise in
such political contests is to take
the testimony of witnesses who are cited
lo appear on behalf of contestants for
scats in the legislature. The. canvassing
board in most every instance e.vorcise.s Ihe
ministerial functions in verifying the returns -
turns and courts may properly bu invoked
lo order the canvassers lomake Ihoir liud-
ings in accordance with their returns
Ituyond this all appeals to adjudicate con
tested seats in the legislature are outside
of the proper jurisdiolion of the courts.
Had this common sense and practical
view of the matter been taken by the re-
IKiblican leader * in Ohio Ihoy would have
no occasion now to denounce the judicial
outrage of the supreme court. There is
no doubt that the eerlllieato held by any
member of the legislature afl'ords consid
erable advantage lo his party in the or-
gani/alion of that body , and in many in
stances the advantage thus obtained re
sults in Ihe seating of the member holding
Mich certificate , when in fact ho is not
entitled lo membership. Hut even if
such a fraud should result in the election
of a United Slates senator by the voles of
fraudulently-sealed members of the legis
lature , tlio election of Mich senator
would be determined by the llnal
final tribunal the United Stale * senate
which passes upon his title. Until Hie
election machinery of the various states
i.s perfected and safe-guards against
frauds in the counting machinery and re
turns are provided , Mich outrages
as those committed last year in
Chicago , ami this year in Cincin
nati , will continue. The remedy is not in
conferring more political power upon the
court * , Ibut in legislative regulation and
and restriction , coupled with vigilance on
the part of the citi/.eiis.
Tun official correspondence between
Austria and the United .Status relating to
the case of Minister Koiley has boon
tiansmiltcd to the senate by thu presi
dent. It shows , as was generally ru
mored at the time , thai Austria icfiibud
to recognize Mr. KoiJoy because his wife
was a .Jewess. The pointed reply of Son-
rotary Uayard to tlio elloct thai the atti
tude of Austria has no precedent in mod
ern times ami cannot bo assented to by
the executive of our government , will
meet wilh Ihu hearty appioval of our
people. "JJeliglous liberty , " says Mr.
liaynrd , "is thu chief corner btono of tiie
American system of gnvornniunl , " and
in accordance with that principlu no per
son's religious faith can bo tpiudtioncd.
The Koiley case , under the circumstan
ces , will no doubt create an animated
discussion in congress , and in all proba
bility unless Austria recedes from its po
sition , notwithstanding the resignation
of Mr. Keiley , the mission will be left

Omaha anil Lincoln.
The nnealled-for hostility which tlie
Lincoln JanriKt ! IIH- for yi ars manifested
towards Omaha iby no menus ( o Im
lakon as rellex of I lie sentiment of the
oiliwni of Lincoln. They realize that
Omalu and Lincoln are not rivals in any
lease of the word anil never will
be. Eighteen yearn ago , when the capi- wa > ivincil < > 1'nnn Omaha to Lincoln ,
Omaha hail a population of nearly
10,000. while Lincoln * vas a. mere
hamlet. KUMI at that poiiod the hiivinc-s
men of Omaha were in no way disturbed
by the leinoval ot Ihu capital. Whatever
prestige may have attached to a capital
city was more than counterbalanced by
he commercial advantages which Omaha
enjoyed by reason of her location at the
gateway to lite 1'ncific. With a popula
tion of fully ( i-VOOO , and a rapid ami
( healthy growth , that fully keeps pace
with the development of the state , Omaha
is in no way concerned about any enter
prise which helps to build up Lincoln or
any other city in Nebraska , On the con
trary Omaha feels .stronger and more
confident of her commercial supremacy
by reason of lh < grow Ih and prosperity
of other cities anil ( own- west of the
Missouri. She would not take the capi
tal from Lincoln if-he could gel it , and
while -he alone pays about one-eleventh
of Ihe entire state levied to maintain ! institution-which are. the back
bone and main lay of Lincoln , she liau
no dispo-ition to cripple any of them.
Why then should an\ paper mvt"iiding
to voice the sentiment of Lincoln ire out
ot its way on every 110 ible occasion to
stab Omaha and belittle her commercial
facilities ? Several sample bricks ofitch
\ cnomou.stupidity were aimed at Oma
ha in Ihe Lincoln tlDurwtl of Sunday.
One of these roadas follows :
The way for Omaha lo { jet business in the
iiorthwesteiu ] ut ot the Mat-o is to sell cooil-
a < < cheap as Sioux City. Adu wllh a kettle
attached to his caudal Hppendaigo never made
such a i.ifkct in the marts ot trade as Is made
by Oniiih.i Inhcr ( nintle elTorU to gel away
from the competition ot tlio ontoi ] > rislii
little Iowa town. Only hist week an O ni.ilia
dignitary talked about Kansas City and. St.
Paul bolus tliu only i ivals of his own town ,
but I'rom the wa > she sinieals when .Sioux
City steps on her toes it is fair to presume thu
dignitary was giing us wind.
JNow would any man or paper pos
sessed of a spark of manhood or state
pride indulge in such indecent Uin s ?
What would be thought by the cki/.cnn of
Lincoln if tin Omaha paper were to ridi
cule tier cnturpri-e and business advan
tages by callinu ; attention to th boast
of some drummer from Atchison or To-
Iieka , or even smaller places , that Lin-
coin was the tail-end of nothing , and that
his town was capturing her trade ? While
it i.s true thatonc wholesale house in I'm-
muni sells more groceries In Nebraska
than any other jobber but one , in Omaha ,
the busino-s niPii of Lincoln would not
appreciate a malicious intimation that
they are playing .second liddlo to Fre
mont ns a wholesale point. The same
spirit of'manifosled in thu ar
ticle above quolod from the Ji > nriittl , i s
.shown in the following I'rom thai paper
ot Iho same date :
Alrcad > Omaha besiiinin ? to make arrangement
rangement- hold her exposition at such a to IntelI'eie as much as posillde with
the state fair to bo held in this city. The
thliit : has gone so far us that fenerd ! Test or
the Union I'ueilUhcaidiiiuitcr. . - has been In
vited to investigate the wuatlici of next Sep
tember and st'O how it will be as to i.iin.
We presume that the cili/.ens of Lin
coln will concede to Omaha the right to
hold an annual exposition , at her own
expense , as long as Omaha is willing to
be taxed to enable the stale board of ag-
rieuHurc to hold a state fair at Lincoln.
Wo have never heard any protest or com
plaint against Kansas City or .St. Joseph
for holding annual expo-itions and com
peting wilh the Nebraska slate fair when
it was held in Omaha. It may bo all wrong
for our exposition managers , who have
erected a f'iO.OOO exposition building , to
hold fairs during the month of sjoptenfuur
instead of December and .January , but wo
take it that tlio monopoly to utili/o the har
vest mouth does not belong to any local
ity. Thu intimation that Omaha is de
termined to interfere us much as possible
with tlio state fair is in striking contrast
with the fact that the last state fair was
patroni/od by si hundred oiliwns of
Omaha whore Iho Omaha exposition was
attended by one citi/.on of Lincoln. As a
matter of laet , the splendid exhibit at
Lincoln was largely duo to the generous
di-plaj's made by business men of Omaha.
Is it not about tinio for the elti/cns of
Lincoln lo rebuke such attempts as those
of llie Journal to create prejudice anil
foolish jealousy where there is no reason
able excuse for such warfare ?

said tint Moro-ini and Connor have been

Tlie executive committee called into'

tives from this status of Missouri , Kansas ,
Iowa , and Nebraska , and territories of
Dakota and Montana , have issued a call
for a river convention to meet at Kansas

importance of improvement of the Mis

rpipstod lo send ilologates.
This is but one in a number of tivor
