Tnr. Ucrnhl professes surprise at the re

ceive recognition when a proper candi
date is named.
THE Kansas City Journal says that
Omaha claims about as largo a popula
tion as Kansas City. Omaha claims
nothing of the kind. Her population at
the present time is variously estimated at
from 70,000 to 75,000. , Wo do not believe
iu inflating our lignrcs the way some
other cities do. Wo are satisfied with
our steady , substantial growth , which is
based on a solid foundation.
Gnnucn is still daring tlio distracted
Turks to knock that Thcssalian chip ofl

THE assaults upon promitumt members
of the law and order league at Lincoln ,
which luivo appeared within tlic past few
days in our Lincoln correspondence , da
not moot the approval of tltu editor oi
the UEK. They are unjust , uncalled-for
and calculated to bolster up the disorder
ly , vicious and lawless elements not only
iu that community but all over the state.
Our position with regard to closing dis
orderly resorts and the curbing of law
lessness lias been time and again donned
and wo do not recede from it.
Wo look upon these attacks aa inspired
by elements which should bo repressed
Mid not encouraged. It does not mat tot
to us or society a't largo , what has been
the previous private record ot nny indi
vidual who is upholding the hands of the
ofllcers of the law in the suppression of
dives and dens. Kvon if they had once
been the most depraved of criminals , they
deserve to bo encouraged in any ellbrt of
moral reform , instead of being abused ,
villilied and threatened with exposure ol
their past career. Theoo are our
sentiments , uninfluenced by any
man , and without complaint from
any source. Matter that docs violanco
to the principles which wo uphold and
the sentiments which \vo entertain will
creep into our news columns from time
to time iu spite of all vigilance. The at
tacks on members of the Law ami Order
league of Lincoln were of that nature.
v It is hardly necessary to state that the
threatened exposures will not bo printed
in this paper. If any public ollicial or
private citizen gets into tlio courts on
account of crookedness , or is guilty of
a flagrant public saabdal , it will be a
l tritlmato piece Of news no matter
| thether ho is a good church member , or
officer in some benevolent society , or n
htgu foiled capitalist living on his In-
omo. TliU is the limit which wo impose

The Government Mnut , Interfere.
If the present unfortunate cm of rail
road strikes has ( might the people of the
country that nothing but national con
trol of such labor troubles will prevent
their recurrence the lesson will bochcaply
purchased. Compulsory settlement ot
labor troubles on avenues of Inter-state
commerce Is the only practical solution
of this perplexing prolilem. If the
strikes , .lockouts and dlsturbnncps affect
ed only the corporations arid their em
ployes , the government might look
on as an interested spectator. When such
troubles paralyze business , destroy trade
and block up trallic the matter becomes
one of national concern. A few million
aire capitalists now control $3,000,000,000 ,
invested in a network of railroads bind
ing together the Ulflercnt sections of the
country. At nny moment they can pre
cipitate a strike for stock jobbing pur
poses which will throw a quarter of n
million of employes out of work and
place thirtv millions of people at tlicir
mercy. On the other hand thu unconsid-
crcd action of n few hot-headed enthu
siasts can produce the same results.
The public meantime stands in
constant danger of being ground
between the upper and thu
lower millstones of voracious capital and
Mr. Heagan of Texas stands on the old
democratic ground of strict construction.
Ho finds no nioro power in congress to
regulate questions between common car
riers and their hired laborers than ques
tions between common carriers and their
butchers or grocers. These arc local
questions , ho says , and the fact that one
of the parties might bo engaged in inter
state commerce does not give congress
jurisdiction , if this is the case , power
must bo given the government. It is pre
posterous to assume that the entire in
land commerce of the nation must
be paralyzed from time to time
because there is no authority who has
power to step in and prompt
ly settle the trouble. Labor
has rarely refused to submit to
peaceful arbitration of its dillerencert with
capital while capital has frequently found
it to its advantage to decline a settlement.
The possibility of such disasters as the
late strike on the southwestern system
must bo forever done away with. A
power of adjustment greater than the
selfishness of capital and.the hunger ol
labor must step in with a strong hand
and interfere. The interests of all classes
demand it.
The British foreign ollico is kept verj
busj' at the present time in watching the
mauouuvcrs of Russia in Central Asia ,
llussian diplomacy is winning over the
Afghan tribes to the support of the czar ,
Muscovite agents are organi/.ing Russian
colonies along the track of the great
highway which leads from thb Caspian
to the Indus , and Russian engineers witli
a large force of soldiers are rushing with
remarkable rapidity the construction of
the railroad to Morv. Every one of the
czar's subjects on the Afghan boundary
commission ie proselyting for his master ,
scattering bribes right and left among
the chieftains and losing no opportunity
to impress upon the minds of the natives
their own powerful backing and the
weakness of the British. As a consequence
quence , tlio Afghans on the south of the
boundary line are becoming disaffected ,
while their brethren on thu north are well
supplied with Russian roubles and arc
strong adherents of the czar. Meanwhile
the railroad which Russia has long been
engaged in building east of the Caspian
sea is being rushed onward toward the
Afghan frontier with all possible speed ,
and there is said to be a general movement
of the czar's troops toward the line ol
communication between the center ol
European Russia and the outposts near
Herat. If political complications at
home or foreign troubles , whether in
Egypt or any other quarter , should em
barrass the British government and
seem to expose India to some measure
to attack or menace , it would not be gur-
prising to liojir ols.stfl3l6n on the Alghan
frontier such as that at I'onjduh a year
ago. Unless , however , there should bo
some special reason for making the at
tack now , it will probably bo postponed
until the Russian line of communication
becomes more perfect and the invasion
of Afghanistan less difficult. The eye of
Russian ambition is fixed on India.
Help Out tlio Cublo Itoatl.
The debate at tlio last meeting of the
city council seems to show that there is
an organized opposition to tlio inaugura
tion of tlio cable system in Omaha ,
which , unless checked , may deprive this
city of the benefits of safe and rapid
transportation. Suoh a result would be
most unfortunate. Cable roads are now
everywhere taking the place of railways
in cities whore grades are sleep
streets climbing the bluffs are dilllcult oi
access , They have boon a success for
years in San Francisco. Chicago long
ago adopted them. Much of Kansas City's
tremendous boom is due to the construc
tion and operation of the cable roads.
It will bo the crowning act of folly of the
city council of Omaha to allow itself
to bo made the tool of interested
men in throwing such restrictions around
the organization of u cable system in
Omaha us will prevent its operation ,
The now company organized to intro
duce the service iu Omaha is a strong
nnd a rosponslbla ojitfj Jt has the
means anil tlio inclination to give this city
ius good as the best , All of the stockholders
are heavily interested in Omaha's growth
and development. While they see in the
construction of the cable line an oppor
tunity for profitable investment , they
also recognize that in its operation
Omaha will reap more than equal ad
vantages through the bonttliU of rapid
transit and increased value of property
along and near its route.
Our pooplu need a cable system and
are anxious to sea it put into speedy
operation. The opportunity has come.
The men are hero and thu capital is on
hand. Nothing stands in the way but
action on Uio part of the city council
granting thorn proper privileges of right
of wny unincunibcired by harnuaing and
needless restrictions. If in order to
operate Its line the cable company
must pledge Itself to run in f rout of every
councilman's property the road will not
be. built , If under the name of
"safeguards , " provisions are exacted
making it impossible for the line lo pay
any prolits in the future , tlio capitalists
interested will not invest. U is right
: < nd proper that in return , for the privil
eges granted rates of fnro and the route
to bo travelled .shall bo regulated by ordi
nance , and that the public convenience
shall bo carefully protected. But there
is such a thing as an undue regard for
private interests outweighing anxiety for
the public welfare. The council owes It
to Omaha to help out the cable road by
every legitimate moans , not to hamper it.
Drifting Apart
The president and his party are daily
drifting apart. Democrats of the old
fashioned school arc disgusted with the
failure of the administration to swing
itself into line with JacKsonian princi
ples , and latter day democrats are equally
disgusted because every move toward
harmonizing one element by patronage
distribution widens the breach by oft'oud-
ing those who are left out in the cold.
The president has set views on a variety
of subjects of national importance , while
the views of the majority in congress are
almost as divergent as the districts from
which they conic. Congress , which was
expected to prove itself nn able
working body capable of sustaining the
hands of the administration and strength
ening the party throughout the country ,
has been a lamentable failure. Its pro
fessions of economy have turned out to
bo hypocritical shams , and its able leaders
have devoted their tahmtalo trying to de
stroy each other's influence. It is divided
u pen every question of national policy ,
and devoted only to building up the po
litical fortunes of individual members in
their home districts. Five mouths of the
session have passed and the only record
made is of envy , jealousy and imbecility.
The party luus no confidence in the ad
ministration , largely because tlio admin
istration has less in the party. The coun
try has none in cither.
Tin : Quinn Bohnnon case has now be
come of national interest. The supreme
court at Washington lias decided to hear
the arguments on the question whether
: > citi/.cn of the United Stales can bo
placed twice in j < japordy of his life. Bo-
haiiou , it will bo remembered , was con
victed of murder in the second degree ,
appealed his case and on a second trial
was convicted of murder in the first de
gree and sentenced to death. His counsel
appealed to the supreme court on the con
stitutional question whether his execu
tion would not bo unjustly depriving him
of life. The appeal was opposed on the
part of the state on the ground that the
court had no "jurisdiction. The court
overruled the motion to dismiss and
Quinn will now bo given another chance
for his life. Whether he escapes the gal
lows or not , he is probably convinced by
this time that it is a dangerous experi
ment to kill a fellow-man because ho

Tin : attention of the board of public
works is called to the condition of several
of our loading paved thoroughfares.
They are full of holes and depressions ,
unllllcd cuts , planked over trenches and
dangerous gans. On Farnam street , in
half a do/on places , the pavement lias
been replaced so badly that accidents are
likely lo happen at any time. North
Sixteenth street is even worse. The
asphalt between the rails of the car
tracks is worn away , and in many places
on the street outside of the tracks it is
loose and crumbling. Dangerous ruts
and jogs , deep cuts iu the pavement and
the base , trenches covered with planks
and holes entirely unprotected , make
the roadway dillieult to travel over , and
in some places dangerous to horse flesh.
Now that settled weather has come llioro
is no reason why the necessary repairs
should not bo made at once. The
board of public works should insist
upon the work being promptly completed.
WHIIK wo wish to give every en
couragement to such an enterprise
as the proposed cable road , it is
only right , and proper that no
monoply of tiic roadway should bo
granted and that proper safeguards
should bo provided agjiinst any ajjoiupts
to proyejit the si-rcSt'ntiltVay from having
access to the viaduct on equal terms.
The cable roads will necessarily have to
pay for any attachments and alterations
required by it , as a condition to its right
of way. The street railroad will have to
pay for the eost of its tracks on tlio
viaduct , and both of these corporations
should bo compelled to pay their portion
towards maintaining the viaduct. When
a street is paved , the street railroad is
required to pay for the cost of paving
between tlio tracks. The same principle
should bo applied in tlio use of the via
THE council has very properly refused
to repeal the franchise of the Omaha Gas
company. . That should , however , in no
way interfere with the design of the new
company to give us cheaper gas. If the
capitalists behind the now company moan
business , and they say they do , the coun
cil will doubtless grant them the right to
establish and operate their gas works.
When their works are completed they
will have a fair chance to carry out their
promise. Tlio company that gives u.s the
cheapest and best g'ns and the slowest
meters will get the patronage.
Tin : telegraph , telephone and electric
lighting wires in Chicago are being rap
idly put under ground , and the poles are
disappearing. The removal of the poles
and wires greatly improves the ap
pearance of the streets , and it is set
tled beyond question that the wires
work botior under tlio ground ! tlian
overhead. The time is near at hand
when telngraph wires and poles will not
bo fceoii upon the streets of any city.
WITH the completion of the Bolt Line ,
Omaha will have hundreds of eligible
locations for manufactures. Will she
retain them or by distributing them on
liberal terms to employers of labor build
up her own fortunes and the fortunes of
her real estate owners at tlio same time ?

an important ruling in a boycotting case

for assisting in expelling Chinese from

claimed that the federal authorities had
no jiirindiction in the matter ; the oll'cnsu
was answerable only to the btate authori
ties. Sawyer rendered the decision , Ho
tayd the charge is apparently founded on
section 5.11 ! ) , revised statutes of the
United States , which imposes a heavy
penalty on persons engaged in conspiracy
to deprive any pcroon or class of persons
of the equal protection of the laws , and
adds : "If this section is valid , what is
popularly known as boycotting is cilmi-
mil , " An appeal will be taken to thu

Chicago Tribune : April 4 the boycott
ing board of the Irado and Labor assent ,
blyof Chicago stated that ' 'they were
alarmed by the increasing frequency of
demands for boycotts , " and reported the
following resolutions , which were
adopted !
The oxporlcnco of your boycotting
board during the last few weeks compels
it to make the following recommendation :
Whenever any union of this body desires
tlio support of the Trade and Labor as
sembly in matter of strikes , that it bo re
quired to submit to the n.ssomblv a full
statement in writing of its grievances
with such demands ( also in writing ) as
are involved in the issue.
That such grievance. ! ) nnd demands
shall thereupon be placed in charge of a
committee of arbitration the executive
olllccrs are hereby elected as such com
mittee \vnoso rttity it shall bo to use all
honorable and peaceable means for the
adjustment of the dilllcully , and that no
boycott shall bo issued against any indi
vidual or linns until said committee of
arbitration shall have failed.
That when the assembly assumes tlio
responsibility of any strike , boycott , etc. ,
its power to adjust .such dill'ienltles
through its proper committees , aided by
a similar committee from thu union hav
ing such grievance , must be recognized.
To the extent that those resolutions eon-
demn the un-American practice of boy
cotting they de.sp.rvo hearty approval.
Evidently they were drawn bv men who
son that the "boycott" Isx dangerous ,
donblc-cdjrcd weapon , and something
must bo done to suppress the rngo for
resorting to it The Chicago Trade and
Labor Assembly lias done wisely in at
tempt ing to put a curb on the boycoltor.s.
but It ought to have gone further ana
condemned the boycott itself as a prac
tice entitled to no toleration or encour
agement in a free country. It was well
for the Labor Assembly to condemn fre
quent and indiscriminate : boycotts , but it
ought not under any circumstances to
give its sanction to an invasion of the
personal liberty and rights of free citi-
/ens under whatever name or pretense
sueh a dangerous practice may bo at
An American citi/en is supposed ( o hold
as inalienable the right to life , liberty ,
and the pursuit of happiness in all that
these terms imply. Among these rights
there is none more sacred than that which
st'curos ' to eaeh cltl/cn the privilege of
buying and selling or disposing ot his
goods or his labor on such terms and in
such manner : is he sees lit. The boycott
has no place iu this country , unless free
citi/onship is to bo regarded hereafter as
a miserable sham. Boycotting originated
in Ireland as an incident of the btrugglo
between foreign landlords and the peas
ants ; it is an ollshoot of inisgovernmcnt
and oppression , and took root only when
the country was in a condition scarcely a
degree removed from revolution. The
boycott is an exotie on American soil ;
there is nothing in the condition of thn
United States to excuse or palliate it , and
men who are disposed to boycott the per
sonal rights and liberty of others ou lit
to bo told in all kindness and sincerity
that the American people will not tolc-
erato it.
Personal liberty includes the right of
every man to buy , sell , seek employment ,
or dispose of his wares in any quarter
without interference. The law guaran
tees him those rights. Men who claim
such rights for themselves and yet organ
ise to prevent their enjoyment by others
have jot to learn tlio first principles of
American citizenship. .Nothing can bo
more certain than that if boycotting is
not brought to a stop in this country all
classes who believe iu the preservation of
personal rights , including e.mployors and
employes , will combine and boycott the
boycotters. Just as certainly as ono ex
treme produces the other will the boycott
prove a double-edged sword to bo turned
against those who appeal to it. We trust
the Trade and Labor Assembly will go
further in Ihu line of the resolutions al
ready adopted and condemn the boycott
as a practice wholly evil and entitled tone
no countenance in a free country.
Couldn't Stand Good Fortune.
It is paid that Newcombe , the heir to
the great Morgan estate i Now York ,
was for many years a hard-working ,
robust , and vigorous plumber , who by
diligent labor kept the mouths of n large
family of children filled. The effect of
Iho fortune upon him has been iinfortU-
natty Ho hag settled into a condition of
pallid melancholy which nothing can
lift. His ruddy color is gone , and he is
as while as a spook. More than this , hi.s
face lias taken on a pained and harassed
look , and ho exhibits a nervous haste in
his movements which is almost pitiful.
Along with the vast fortune he inherited
all of Mrs. Morgan's family coaches ,
and. being a conscientious manhe , drlvea
resolutely in them every afternoon , thu
picture of overawed and plaintive dis
content. IIis good fortune 1ms complete
ly unnerved him. At least this is the
representation of a Now York letter-
ProofW for Tiinoy.
Indianapolis News : Among other
traditions of the government printing
ofiicn at Washington is a story told about
a boy sent with some proof-slips of an
important decision of Chiet Justice
Taney. He appeared at the office of the
chief justice and asked him : ' 'Is Taney
in ? " " 1 presume ; " was the dignified re
ply , "you wish to see the ohiel justice of
the United States > " "I don't cure a cuss
about him. I've got nome proofs for

"You're Taney , aren't you ? " "I um not ,
follow ; I am Hon. linger B. Tuiiey. "
"Then the proofs are not for you , " and
the unceremonious messenger would
have gone oil'with thorn if the judge had
not admitted himself to be Tanoy simply.
