Shall the republican party through the
state convention declare its choice for
United States senators ? Congressman
Weaver , through his bravo organ , volun
teers the proposition that the nomination
of Van Wyck's successor bo made at Iho
coming state convention , and the name
of the candidate chosen shall bo printed
upon the state ticket in the same manner
ns that of o'licr ' candidates
'J ills suggestion , made with the object
of ruling Van Wyck from the senatorial
race track , well commends ilsolf to the
supporters of Senator Van Wyck
as well as to his opponents.
By all. means let the issue
be made and squarely met. Wo believe
that VnnVyck is the choice of nine-
tenths of the republican party of tlio
state , ana they may as well express their
will through their delegates in the state
convention and direct tlio party man
agers to print Van Wyck's name on
every republican ticket.
The opponents of Senator Van Wyok
are of course very confident that they
can down him in the convention a great
deal bettor than in a legislature. They
rely upon the corporation inolhod of
packed conventions and bulldozed
delegates. Nebraska , however , is no
longer a pocket borough for railroads.
The now generation ot republicans are
Intelligent enough to act without instruc
tions from railroad headquarters , und
they certainly will not allow the worn
out political hacks who have for years
misruled the party to dictate its choice
for United Slates senator. The rank
and file of the repuplicixu parly
very seldom are consulted as to their
preference In Iho choice of senator.
The candidates , heretofore , have never
dared lo appeal for a popular endorse
ment cillior by convention or at the polls.
General Van Wyck is the first senator
coming up for ro-cloction who has a
record which challenges Impartial dis
cussion. Ho has acquired a national rep
utation which will bear dissection oven
by his worst enemies. It is only right
and proper that every man who applies
for Van Wyck's position shall present the
credonlials on which his claim is based.
When these men are ranged side by side
with the senior senator in convention ho
will lose nothing by a comparison.
The republicans of Nebraska cannot
discuss senatorial candidates too soon
nor too much. The darn horse should
have no place in the senatorial race. If
Van Wyclc Is to bo retired , they demand
a successor who will bo able to represent
them If not with as much ability at least
with equal firmness nnd integrity. The
republicans of Nebraska do not propose
in this campaign to follow in the foot
steps of the Ohio bourbons when they
retired the old Roman Judge
Ihurraan to replace him by a coal
oil dummy. Corporate monopolies and
their henchmen will raise the battle cry
of "Anybody to boat Van Wyck , " but the
republicans will insist upon somebody
instead of a nobody.
For our part , wo most decidedly favor
Mr. Weaver's plan to nominate the sen
ator. If there is any man who commands
the respect and confidence of a majority
of the party bettor than Van Wyck let
him bo named. Wo havon't heard his
name whispered yet. Tlio names wo
have read about as candidates are prin
cipally suggestive of a still hunt and the
By all moans lot the committee Include
in its call the choice of senator. The local
conventions then will declare their pre
ference and send delegates in full accord
with their choice.
Showing Their Hand.
The revelations of democratic hostility
to civil service reform now making arc
not in themselves surprising , nor will
those familiar with the character of that
party find cause of astonishment , in the
methods by which its loaders in congress
shall now or hereafter attempt to nullify
tlio civil service law. Yet wo find Mr.
Dorman B. Eaton addressing labored let
ters to Mr. Samuel J. Randall in defense
of reform and in deprecation of the ef
forts to destroy it , and Mr. Carl Schur/
consuming hours in talking on the same
subject before the Massachusetts Reform
club , as if these ardent advocates of
the reform policy had discovered
some unlookcd for nnd startling fact.
Certainly no intelligent reader of current
political history can have entertained a
doubt as to the position of the demo
cratic party on this subject. It is im
placably opposed to civil service reform ,
as it is to every other reform
which might put the slightest re
striction upon its command of the
spoils , and it will exhaust every moans
and resource , however unfair or unscru
pulous , to nullify and defeat suoh reform.
The few men prominent in the party not
in sympathy with the general sentiment
can bo counted on the fingers of two
hands , and not ono of them could secure
an elective office by democratic votes.
The democracy of Ohio thrust Mr.
Pondloton aside al the very first oppor
tunity aitor-tho passage of the civil ser
vice law , and it cnunot bo doubted that
Mr. Cleveland would have benn over
whelmingly defeated had the democracy
of tlio country supposed ho would stand
for the observance of the law as ho has
done. In tlio last campaign in Now
York tha democracy was arrayed in
unequivocal opposition to civil service
reform , and mainly upon this the full
party fatrength was rallied to Hill , who
is now among the recognixed leaders In
the anti-reform camp , with undoubted
aspirations to u higher station which ho
hopes to roach by pandering to the
spoils-seeking proclivities of the party.
The Iromondous pressure Prcsidenl Cleveland -
land has had lo contend against is
familiar to the country. In view of tills
and much more that lias become history ,
there is nothing surprising in Hie revela
tions of democratic hostility to reform
now making ,
It has been suspected for some time
Hint Mr. Randalll was in hearty aflillation
wilh Iho spoils-aeokers , nnd his attiludo
in Iho debate of Wednesday In the house
shows that tliu suspicion was well
founded. It is consistent with the
Machiavollau character of Mr. Randall
that ho should bo found now not only
antagonizing the president but renounc
ing a po.iition which , until recently , ho
was believed upon good grounds to hold.
The method proposed for nullifying the
law is not by direct and straightforward
atlack , on the broad and fair ground that
it U a principle or policy which
ought not to be maintained , but by
indirection. It is proposed to make
it a condition of the appro
priation for this service thai it shall bo
Available only when the rules of the civil
service commission are so framed as
that the names of all applicants for offi
cial appointment from any stale , found
duly qualified for examination and with
out regard to ngc , shall bo sent to the
head of n department or oilier officer
charged with making an appointment.
The object of this pimply is to assure the
appolnltnont , in the great majority of
cases , of democrats , which such a rule
would accomplish. The business of the
government would undoubtedly go
on just as smoothly nnd efllcicnlly
if there was no civil service
law , but the method of nulli
fying the law proposed by the democrats
is not the slraighlforward way of dealing
with the mailer , although It is entirely
consistent witu the character of that
party. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Now Englniul'a Hobby.
The roprcsontallvcs of Now England in
congress are not disposed to permit pub
lic interest in the fisheries controversy lo
die out , nnd they lose no opportunity to
press this issue upon popular attention ,
Apart from Iho importance of Iho matter
as an international question , and as af
fecting the welfare of a largo interest ,
tlio solicitude of the Now England con
gressmen may find further ground of
justification in tlio circumstance thai llio
Unllod Slalcs is represented in England
by a minister whoso predilections are be
lieved to bo quite as much English as
American , and whose sense of duty may
require to bo stimulated oy a strong ex
pression of popular sentiment at homo.
Furtlicrmorc Mr. Bayard did not at the
outset manifest n very hearty concern in
tliu issue , and while in fairness credit
must bo given him for a recent exhibition
of some zeal , certainly no harm cau como
from maintaining something of the pres
sure which produced it.
'Iho latest expression of Now England
Eonliment upon this subject is contained
in n bill introduced in tlio house a few
days since , the object of which is to pro-
led Iho freedom of commercial inlor-
courso. It provides that whenever the
president shall bo satisfied that Ameri
can vessels are denied the privilege of
purchasing supplies , bait , and oilier com
mercial articles , in any port or ports of
any foreign country , ho may by procla
mation prohibit the vessels of such coun
try , or any designated district , port , col
ony , or dependency thereof , or any class
of such vessels , from entering American
ports or exorcising commercial privileges
therein , a violation of such proclamation
to work the forfeiture of Iho vessel and
the fine and imprisonment of the offend
ing olliccr. It is very likely that a meas
ure of this kind would have the approval
of a largo majority of tlio American poo-
pie , for whether the interest bo great or
little in the controversy directly affect
ing a New England industry , among the
people of other sections of the country ,
a common feeling , equally strong every
where in the nation , will approve the
policy of protecting American vessels
against unjust and iniiirious discrimina
tion on the part of other nations or their
dependencies , and tlioro is , perhaps , no
moro effective way of accomplishing this
than by closing our ports to the vessels
of any country which shall deny to Amer
ican vessels the fullest commercial priv-
iliges in its ports.
The musical festival has opened. The
work of the first evening was a pleasant
surprise , even to those whose expecta
tions were raised Iho highest. Handel's
immortal oratorio'of "The Messiah" was
presented with a completeness and finish ,
which few of those who listened to its
music had overheard excelled. The per
formance was moro than creditable to
Omaha. It would have attracted atten
tion and generous praise in any
musical center. The leading artists
needed no introduction and call for
no extended comment. Fursch-Madi ,
Pierce , Huntinglou and Brodcrick have
been heard before iu Omaha and the
warmth of their reception evidenced the
pleasure which they always afford to
those who are fortunate enough to listen
to the exercise of their talents. But
hearty commendation is duo and will not
bo withheld from the other participants.
The chorus did good and honest work.
In several instances it rose to the level
of very high artistic excellence.
The large orchestra filled well their
part , while Mr. Pratt hold his forces well
in hand and conducted witli his usual
brilliancy nnd faithfulness to the score.
One of the most pleasant surprises was
the perfect accoustio properties of the
exposition building. Every note could
bo clearly heard In the most remote
corners of tlio structure. Tlio succeeding
concerts of the festival should bo patron
ised by oven larger audiences than lhat
which attended the first. They will well
do&orvo the best that the people of Omaha
can give them.
PKESIDEKT CLEVELAND has resumed his
executive functions , and his accomplished
young wife lias taken her place in the
white house as the "first lady of the
land , " with every assurance that filio will
honor the exalted social station. Every
consideration of propriety demands that
the president und his wife bo relieved
from further espionage and permitted lo
enjoy all the domestic letirement they
can secure , without fear thai any Paul
Pry of Iho press will give lo Iho world ,
witli embellishments , every act of their
daily lifo not concealed by closed doors
and drawn curtains. There has boon
"something lee much" of salacious son-
salionallsm in the work ot the so-called
metropolitan press in connection wilh
Iho event of Mr. Cleveland's marriage ,
nnd whatever may bo thought of the
enterprise of those newspapers which
have put forth Iho greatest efforts in this
line some of them witli a disgustinc
disregard of the decencies and proprie
ties it is certain that American journal
ism has not gained In character or in the
respect of people who have regard for
the proprieties , by their course.
OMAHA wants nnd must have botlcr
facilities for travel to and from the slock
yards und packing houses of South
Omaha. The only way lo got there
cheaply at present is by the Union Pa-
cillc trains. This means going out at 11
and being penned up until 4 or 0 iu the
afternoon. Those who want to go later
than 11 a. m , must him a hack or car
riage or go on foot. If they desire lo
leave the yards before the trains come in
from the west they have the same exper
ience. When we had no bridge across
the Missouri people. traveled .by
stage to Council Blutla , at lelut
two or throe timosi n day. There
was not half as. much travel between Ihcso
points M there now is between Omaha
and the sloch fyards. , 'Tlip promise Hint
the Bolt Line will soon run hourly trains
to the stock yards is very consoling for
people who can wait ti ycnr or two. Hut
meantime it becomes a business problem
how to Rot to South Omih.1 without los

Summer ( tccrcntlon ,
With the ndrcnl of Juno Iho month of
roses tlioro comes upon nearly all the
tired denizens of cities n longing to leave
behind them , for the time being , the
crowded streets , with their busy hum ,
nnd spend their days in shady spots
whore they can hoar "Iho moan of doves
in immemorial elms and murmcr of in
numerable bccsl" Many there are , un
fortunately , who on account of their
limited means or the arduous character
of their work cannot afford much moro
rest or rccrcalion Ihan lhat which Is
furnished by n family picnic in the parker
or by a day's run into llio country or to
the seashore , But tlioro are thousands ,
on Ihe other hand , who are able to taku a
vacation of n wnok or moro , thn chief
dllnculty that bescU Ihom being lo decide
where llipy shall go.
It is said of an English nobleman who
had for years spent tils summers on thu
continent of Europe that he was at last
surprised to lind within n few miles of
his own homo a little spot which lie had
never before scon , but which in natural
beauty was superior to any of the vaunted
nooks of Franco or Italy. And if many
tourists who cross the Allanlic could only
bo persuaded lo spend one of their sum
mer vacations al homo it is probable lhat
they would have u similar experience.
The advantages of foreign travel of
coming into contact wilh lhq civilization
of tlio old world , of wandering through
towns nnd cilius rich in historic lorn and
fraught with the memories of centuries
will , of course , bo readily acknowledged.
But It is too often the case that tranMal-
laulio Irips are made hurriedly and in an
endeavor to crowd lee much Into a very
limited period , tlio rosull being thai llio
traveler returns with a confused idea of
what ho or she has seen ,
The Tro achs , to which thousands of
pilgrims travel yearly from nil lands ,
were unknown until Sir Waller Scolt's
"Lady of tha Lake" told of the fair Ellen ,
of Fitz James and of Hhoderick Dim.
And it would often seem as If our authors
in their desire to picture us "centuries
vast and deserts idle , rough quarries ,
rocks and hills , whoso heads touch
heaven" forgot that in their own land
llicro Is to bo found everything that can
awe and charm ; vast inland tideless seas ,
glassy lakes , forests , primeval moun
tains scarrcu by the tempest , valleys
laughing in pcrnotual bloom , and in fact ,
thousands of places thai reflect every
mood of nature , loop holes of retreat
through which we can peep on the far
away world of men , while llio turmoil of
Iheir dally lifo and labor conies to us
softened by distance and blended with
thu song of birds and tliu murmur of
hidden brooks. There is , it is good to
find , each returning year an increasing
desire lo know more of our country , and
to make the hot day.s of summer times ot
rest and recreation in the best sense of
Our own state offers every opportunity
for this. Quaint old hamlets and vil
lages , the inhabitants of which still retain
many of tlio manners and customs which
their forefathers brought with them
across the sea two hundred years ago ;
mountain homos , where lungs choked
with the hot air and dust of the cit can
drink in the life-giving odor of the piucs ,
and fertile valleys rich in fruitful orch
ards and in waving corn-fields all these
invite us. Then , too. within easy dis
tance arc long strclchos of yejlow sand
washed by Iho restless sea in whoso
waters wo can bathe , and from whoso
shores wo can look out on nothing but
ocean and sky and dream our nays away ,
like the lotos caters , in pence and iu for-
gclfulness of all that so otten chafes the
spirit nnd makes lito burdensome. A
few weeks spent in this way will do much
toward helping us to withstand the pres
sure that in these days bears so heavily
upon all ; to give tlio tired frame and ox-
haustc'J brain rest , nnd to teach us that
after all , man's "first , best country ever
is at home. "
HE WANTED A PASS.
Tlio Sad Story of a Decayed Gentle-
Philadelphia News : Captain Loa-
bourne refused to admit him to the pres
ence of Mayor Smith. Ho was ono of the
shabby geulecls , very shabby , indeedbut
though his hat was battered and Unify ,
though his not too clean shirt peeped at
the world through his coat sleeves at the
elbows , and though his pantaloons did
not reach the tops of his buttoiilcss ,
cracked putont-loathor pumps , his mien
was none llio loss lofty ; mistortunowhat
ever effect it had on him externally , had
not affected him as a man. Tlio busy
little captain knew ho was a beggar , and
referred him to Detective Allmondingor ,
whom ho found down stairs. Ho made a
profound bow , brusliintr back his hair ,
cleared ills throat and said :
"I am very sorry , indeed , for this in
trusion. Accept my humble apology ;
but the menial by Ihe portal up-stuirs
positively declined to convoy my card to
the Mayor , and I was referred to you. "
Ho handed the detective llio four of
diamonds , on which was written with a
burnt match tha numa "J. Q. Duquosno. "
" 1 am very much pleased to meet you ,
Mr. Dewkano , " said the officer , "and
trust I may bo able to serve you. "
"Thanks. I think you can servo me.
