IT has long been n conviction of all
fair-minded people that General Black ,
commissioner of pensions , is a dema
gogue pure and simple , and his most re
cent appearances before the senate in
vestigating committee have served to
confirm this conviction and add to the
number of those entertaining it. From
the day of his induction into ollicc Black
has lost no opportunity to manifest his
strong partisan fooling , and ho has been
more conspicuously oflonsivo in this rc-
pcct than perhaps any other man in the
government service , although the bureau
of which he is the head ought to be the
least subject to the influences of parti
sanship. It will bo very much like solf-
stultltication on the part of the president
if he permits Black to remain in oflice
after the exposure of his conduct and
character that has beou made by the
senate investigation.

Secret KxociitlTO Bosnians.
It is said Hint another effort is to bo
made in the United States senate to have
secret executive sessions done away with ,
and the business to which these sessions
are devoted chiclly the consideration of
presidential appointments transacted in
open session. This matter was quite fully
discussed by the senate some months ago ,
and the weight of argument was most
decidedly with the advocates of open
sessions. The question ought not bo re
garded as In any sense a partv one , and
yet it is found that the strength of the
opposition to secret sessions comes from
the republicans , the majority of the dem
ocrats supporting the system in vogue.
Under existing circumstances the reasons
for this are obvious.
The objections to the system are that it
is essentially undemocratic and that It
Invites and gives opportunity for grave
wrongs and injustice to individuals for
which they have no redress. It Is a
system of the star chamber kind totally
at variance with the American principle
that all matters which can be debated
and acted upon by the representatives of
the people openly , without detriment to
the public interests , should bo discussed
and disposed of iu full view , so that the
whole people may have knowledge of
every detail of them , and stttely there is
nothing , or ought to bo nothing , in the
matter of acting upou the appointment *
of the president , which can justify ( ho
33'stem of proceeding in secret. When
the president sends appointments to the
senate they are referred save in excep
tional cases to committees whose duty it
is to make careful and thorough inquiry
into the Character and quiilillcatious ol
the appointees. The report of a commit
tee usually determines the fate of a can
didate , but it not infrequently happens
that an appointee who has received the
endorsement of the committee to whom
his name was referred will bo
defeated for continuation because some
senator personally dislikes him or takes
this means of punishing him for some
sin of omission or commission with respect
to such senator. The character of the
candidate may bo traduced and his
reputation damaged by false or exagger
ated charges , which must remain unre-
fitted , perhaps to his permanent injury ,
because the lips of every senator is closed
by a pledge of sccrcsy that does not per
mit the injured man to know to what
charges his defeat was due or who is
responsible for them. Behind the burred
doors of the senate prejudice or malice
may have full way , and every .senator bo
made a party to n gross injustice mcrclv
to gratify the vindictivcnoss of one of
their number who has a grievance against
a candidate for a public oillco , but who
would not dare to seek satisfaction in this
way were it not for the protection
and immunity which this system of
secresy affords him. A practice that in
vites and makes possible such wrong and
injustice and there is on record the
authoritative statement of senators that
such is its effect is wholly repugnant to
republican policy and principles , and to
that sense of fair play which Americans
possess as largely as any other pcoplf.
The United States senate has not grown
in popular regard during the past few
years. Since the great statesmen whoso
presence there made it the foremost
legislative body in the world have de
parted , and their places are occupied
by the attorneys of soulless corporations
and by self-seeking demagogues , the
senate has with the decline of character
lost largely in popular respect. It will
certainly not better its claim to the re
gard and confidence of the people by ad
hering to a system , which , whatever
justification there may have been for it
in the past , is no longer useful or
Postponing the Isauo.
The refusal of congress by a vote of 157
to 140 to consider the question of tariff
reduction is a lilting ending of the work
of a session "which for incapacity for
business , disregard of party pledges and
general imbecility on the side of the
directing majority , has never been sur
passed , if equalled , in the history of the
lower house. The question of tax
reduction was one of the vital
issues in the campaign which
resulted in Mr. Cleveland's election.
Both parties recognized the popular
demands for reform of the tariff and
pledged themselves , through their repre
sentatives , to meet it when the new con
gress convened. Upon this point , the
necessity of lifting a largo portion of the
burdensome and needless duties , there
was no difference of opinion. The pres
ence of an cnprmous surplus in the na
tional treasury , and the too rapid reduc-
tionof the interest-bearing debt , worn ar
guments for tax reduction which could
not bi gainsaid by the most rabid advo
cates of high taritt'as a protection to
American industry. Quite apart
from this was the question
whether the undue stimulus of the
existing tariff was not seriously demoral
ising many lines of industrial effort by
fostering great monopolies m some
branches and overstocking the home mar
kets in others. All parties agreed that
tiie issue of tux reduction was not the is
sue of free trade , but purely the question
whether the country should continue to
lax its people needlessly and exorbitantly
when every necessity for thu impoaitiou
of such monstrous bunions had parsed
away. As usual , individiu ! interests and
the influence of wealth has worked
upon congrcssloaal cowardice to again
postpone the Issue. With a surplus of
more than eighty-live millions above thn
revenue rccjuireinanUof thu present your
congress will once more adjourn leaving
the burdensome tariff taxo * as they found
them at the opening of thu session , The
pledges made hy the parties to the people
have proycd small obstacles In the path
of thn pledges made by congressmen to
individual protected inton-its.
The Jeans of tax reduction may be de
layed for the time but it cannot
be indefinitely postponed. TJie producers
of the country , who are tolling through
out the west on unprotected fvm < to up
hold the great mouopolicn built up by a
ticions system of extortionate tariff taxa
tion , will not patiently diulura much lon
ger the refusal of both parting as nt pres
ent constituted to deal wltu their coin *
phhittt. Th men who have made their
wishes powerful in revolutionizing the
sentiment of congress un the qawtion of
railroad mononolira will be nn less suc
cessful in L-n'octiug their object
in securing relict from the bur
dens of ( lie wt-.r Uiscd which
their representatives refuse to lift from
the overloaded shoulders of the people.
Private iutcrcsU may succeed for the mo
ment , but their success only adds fuel to
the flame which in the end threatens to
sweep away a much larger portion of the
tariff system than the opnoncnts of the
needless tariff taxes now demand shall
bo removed from the national statute
They Must Como to Tlino.
The Pullman Palace Car company ,
through iU superintendent , has given
notice to the county commissioners that
it will pay no taxes in Nebraska on the
rolling stock and property employed iu
the transaction of business in this state.
This is a defiance of authority which the
people of Nebraska will not only resent ,
but will take prompt steps to remedy ,
It is a barefaced attempt of one of the
most extortionate monopolies to evade
its duo share of the burdens of
carrying on government. The plea
that the company is engaged in
Interstate commerce , and therefore not
subject to taxation , is more evasion. The
company 'has its headquarters here , its
cars run into the yards on the Nebraska
side , are repaired in our machine shops
and are actually located hero. Employes
are hired and discharged at Omaha ,
and all its trans-Missouri business this
side of Ogden is transacted at this point.
For the Nebraska lines comprising the
Union Pact lie , Missouri Pacific and the
Burlington , a system within the state
limits of over a thousand miles , this
company has heretofore returned prop
erty assessed at $60,000. It is safe to say
that the cars operated in Nebraska are
worth half a million. In Denver they
have this spring boon assessed ut $340,000 ,
although the Colorado lines arc b.y no
means as extensive as those operated
from Omaha.
The commissioners of Douglas county
should do their duty and compel this
company to pay its taxes. It enjoys all
the protection afforded to other local
companies , In case of fire or riot
it promptly calls for the advantnges of
government paid for by other taxpayers.
Our water , lire and police service are at
their disposal , our courts at their service
and they are freely used when occasion
requires. They must bo made to share
in the cxpons.0 of protecting property and
carrying on the government , in whose
advantages they are equal sharers with
all other property owners. With due res
pect for Judge Blatohford. upou whoso
decision that the Pullman company is
operating an interstate commerce
line of transportation , this corpor
ation basis its resistance to tax
ation , wo regard the position taken
as entirely untenable. Judge Blatchford
is not the first judge whoso bias in favor
ot corporate monopolies has warped his
judgment. The idea is preposterous. If
the Pullman company is exempt from
taxation m Nebraska on its cars , so is
the Union Pacilic and Burlington. The
latter company ! s operated largely from
Chicago , and the Union Pacilic runs
trains from Council Bluffs. If the Pull
man company docs not intend to pay taxes
in Nebraska where docs it propose to pay
taxes ? The Nebraska division makes no
returns in Iowa as far as we can learn ,
and the cars rnn in the trans-Missouri
country are not taxed in Illinois. It is a
bold attempt to evade all taxation which
will not bo permitted to succeed.
We serve divine notice on the Pullman
company that Nebraska is able to cope
with it in a contest of this kind. The leg
islature will meet next winter , and we
shall see whether they will exempt palace
cars from taxation or bring the managers
under their control by proper regulation ,
which may include not only taxes but
THKKR is an impressive lesson in the
fact that during the past two months
there was a very remarkable increase In
the number of chattel mortgages re
corded in Chicago , instruments of tins
class having doubled in number in the
six weeks following the inception of the
labor troubles. An investigation of these
mortgages showed them to be hinroly
given on furniture , with an occasional
piano included , few of them represent
ing an amount in excess of f 100. It is
not diflicult to tin ( I thn instructive fea
tures of this fact. It means that the ac
cumulation of years of labor by him-
drcdsof workingmen in Chicago are pay
ing ruinous tribute to the usurious money
lenders ; itmeans that in the homes of hun
dreds of the toilers of Chicago the sense
of peace and independence which prevailed -
vailed a few weeks ago has been sup
planted by an ever-haunting feeling of
fear and harrassiug responsibility ; it
means bitter humiliation in the sense of
servitude to greedy and relentless usu
rers ; it moans depriving wives and
children of little pleasures and priv
ilcges hitherto enjoyed , and the surren
der ol comforts which to plain people
are luxuries , in order that the money
lenders shall not fail of their harvest ;
it means to many years more of toil ,
with the practice of a rigid economy , in
order that they may bo again able to say
that what they possess is their own , and
to many it moans the loss of all nt last ,
however hard and patient and self-sacri
ficing the struggle lo save it. Unhap
pily the experience of the workingmen of
Chicago , who have been forced by the
labor troubles to place their small pos
sessions ut the mercy of heartless usurers ,
is not singular ; it can bo supplemented
by the records of all the larger cities , and
the consequences in privation , sorrow ,
injustico'and hardship would appal the
strongest , could they bo presented in
THAT historic tax-shirker , the Pullman
car company , protests against paying
taxes in Nebraska because their cars are
engaged in interstate ( radio. They object
to assessment in Iowa because their
conches start from Illinois , In Illinois
the plea is raised that their property is
about all in other states.
ELEVEN per cent was the assessment
increase reported this year from the
Third ward. If the Third wishes to show
up its actual magnificent advance in
value , it must get an assessor who knows
more about appraising property than ho
about working a handsaw for ono of the
heaviest tax shirkers In the precinct.

Monumcntlnc } ho City.
The action taken by trnj city council at
its last session looking towards an official
survey of the city and a'proper ' determi
nation of lot lines , jStrict corners and
intersections was wise and timely. The
subject Is one that lias been often dis
cussed and strongly urged. Its impor
tance , in view of tltd growth of Omaiia
had became so manfftat , that at the last
session of the lcgislauro ( the charter wag

of the first-class.
All cities have passed llirough a similar
experience , but , as nested by the city en

basis , Several maps have been pub
lished by private individuals , but they
nil contain glaring errors and no one
agrees with another. As a consequence
there is a variance in the length of our
city blocks of from two to six feet , while
the streets themselves show a difference
In width in about the same proportions.
Section corners used as the basis of sur
veys have disappeared , stakes and monuments
ments placed years ago as hxcd points ,
from which surveys wore made , have
gone , and as a result there is a steadily in
creasing dllliculty In discribiug property
and n corresponding increase in dis
putes over lot lines between property
The charter provision for monument-
inc the city contemplates a commission
of civil engineers of which the city engi
neer shall bo a member whoso duty it
hhall bo not to change existing and ac
cepted lines , but to note and fix their
location , make and complete surveys of
every block in the city and forever deter
mine them by locating stone monuments
at every intersecting street from which
the distances can bo over afterwards
measured. This survey when made will bo
the official plat of the city recorded in the
county clerk's ollico and the basis for all
subsequent maps. It will afford property
owners and the city a perpetual safe
guard against srror or fraud and if done
promptly will save an fmmonso amount
of trouble and expense , anneals to the
courts and damage to property interests.

cans ate not fond of being mixed up In polit
ical banquets with kickers and constitutional
bolters. Messrs. Thurston and Kosewatcr. o
Omaha , were theie. howe\er , ana divided the
lionois of the evening.
The Jomnal neglects to state , except by
implication , the tact that since the occurrence
ol late events In lailroad politics Mr. Thurs
ton and Mr. Kosowater are as thick as Hies iu
an Omaha restaurant. All the principals at
the Piattsmouth banquet were railroad cap
pers. Now , railroad capping may be repub
licanism , but we don't believe It. The editor
of the Journal and the editor of thu
Republican were Invited to the ban-
qucl. We violate no confidence In say
ing that they preferred not to accept
the Invitation because of a hesitation to trust
their republicanism in an atmosphere redo
lent of lallroad corruption. Mr. Gere and
his friend of this paper are with the people
and republican party ; they ate down on the
rallioads , passes or no passes ; they are not
candidates for oflico ana therefore do not
seek railroad support. They do not believe
that politicians such as Van Wyck and Koso
water , who desert the ncople at a critical
juncture and combine with the railroads , are
worthy to be called republicans. Omaha
And whereas , This organization did ,
according to its annual custom , extend
to certain prominent and honorable gen
tlemen whom it highly esteemed both as
gentlemen and representative republi
cans the hospitality of our club as a
political organization as well as of its
largo membership individually and of
our niosperous city ; and
Whereas , All of our invited guests , ex
cept the editor of the State Journal ,
courteously responded to such invita
tions , either personally" or by letter of regret -
grot and sympathy ; and
Whereas , This club is composed of
representative republicans of Cass
county , who are not afraid to trust their
republicanism in the society of gentle
men , and who claim to understand the
common courtcios due from one citizen
to another , as well at ) the amenities due
the public from those who aspire to the
high and honorable calling of journalism ;
and ,
Whereas , the foregoing extracts from
the two prominent journals are f also in
point of fact and unworthy either of the
organs from which they emanate , nnd
cim only bo construed , as a direct and
undeserved insult to this club and its mem
bers. Therefore be it
Resolved , 1. That we sincerely regret
the mistake made by this club in classing
either of the persons named as gentle
men deserving of the recognition and
hospitality of- tills club.
2. That we sincerely regret the mistake
made iu associating the name of Charles
II , Gore and Fred Nye with those ot the
honorable gentlemen who made up the
list of .the invited guests to our eucond
annual reunion.
! ) . Further , that in the opinion of the
members o | this club the intemperate ,
unprovoked und vulgar attack made
upon the members of this club and their
invited guests in the article from the
Omaha Republican are unworthy a great
nawspapor of its pretensions , and could
only emanate from a trilling and irre
sponsible source , especially in view of
the fact that the author thereof had for
warded this club a ilorjd letter of con
gratulations , regretting his inability to Do
present with us upon the occasion of our
annual banquet.
Resolved , turthor , That a copy of these
resolutions be forwarded the State Jour
nal , Omaha Republican and Omaha UEII.
