MAYOII IlAitmsoN of Chicago probably
made the mistake of his life , and U is
thickly honeycombed with blunders ,
when ho declared war against the news
papers. The press boycott of the mayor
lias put him in a almost wholly jiolploss
position , the very papers through which
ho can voleo any complaint or opinion
being opposed to him politically.
1 Harrison's public career is nearly at an
1 end , and wo should think that the ueo-
plo of Chicago would nearly unani
mously welcome Us termination.
ANOTiir.ii interesting example. The
Ellison Elcotrlo Light company of New
York Intended to establish works in
Willlamsburg , hut the strike in the build
ing trades compelled the postponement
of the project , and the company has now
decided to establish the works at Scho-
nectady. Their construction will require
nn expenditure of something like
$100,000 , none of whioh the strikers anil
many of thorn nro still idle will receive.
Thn Now York Times pertinently ob
serves : "A few moro cusoa like this may

of personal injury to himself contained
in the charge of William "Walter Phelps ,
who was understood to bo a sort of con
fidential roprcsentativn of Mr , Ulaino ,

Senator Van Wyck's shrewd move
which caused the son.ito to pass what
was virtually the house bill to tax the
railroad land grants and to force the
companies to select nml take out patents
on their lands lias already homo fruit ,
The measure which was referred to a
conference committee has hecn reported
to mid adopted by the house , and noth
ing now remains but the formal assent
of the senate to Its own action to com
plete congressional work on the measure
nnd pass it to President Cleveland for
The railroad strikers who pooh-poohed
so loudly nml predicted that the bill
would slumber In conference are
respectfully invited to direct their optics
to thn fact that it is not dead or even
sleeping. The earnest four years' work
of Nebraska's fearless senator to break
down the barriers which monopoly attor-
nc3's , posing as popular representatives ,
had erected in the upper house of con
gress to obstruct all remedial legislation
against their clients , is bearing fruit , His
bold championship of the rights of the
people as against ttio arrogant aggres
sions of the Ink-shirking and land-grub
bing corporations has made a broad and
deep mark on the records of the pres
ent session of congress. Almost
alone ho lias borne aloft the banner
of opposition to the railroad lobby and
has preached a vigorous crusade against
the wrongs of monopoly oppression and
the laws behind which the corporations
him ) bulwarked themselves. The record
of the senator is open to all. It has been
made in thfl full sunlight of publicity ,
and It comprises his chief claim on the
sutlragos of his constituents for a reelection
tion to the senate.
The Obnoxious Senate.
Not long ago the Hay Slate club of Bos
ton banqueted a number of prominent
democrats , among whom was Governor
Hill of Now York. The governor had
participated in the ceremonies attending
the unveiling of the statue of Daniel
Webster at Concord , Now Hampshire ,
where lie had made an address laudatory
of the great expounder of the constitution ,
and thercbv had the more surely com
mended himself to the men of .Massachu
setts , who without regard to party honor
the miiinory of Webster. Ho was the lion
of both occasions , and on the wiiolo ac
quitted himself with credit.
It is wortli while to note the opinions
and course of Governor Hill , who is un
deniably ono of the very strongest men
to-day in his party , and whoso inlluonce
is very sure to bo widely extended during
the next two years. Simply as a politi
cian lie is very much superior to Mr.
Cleveland , and being more decidedly a
partisan than the president is very sure to
grow in the esteem of the great
body of the party. It is apparently a
safe forecast that ho will bo a "prominent
liguro before the next national demo
cratic convention , and ho is not the sort
of man to permit anylpersonal considera
tions to interfere with his chances. He
may bo grateful for the moral and mate
rial aid extended by the president in the
campaign which made him governor , and
which was given none too soon , but he
will not bo moved by it to make any sac
rifices. There is reason to believe tiiac
with the masses of the Now York domou-
racy ho is stronger to-day than is Mr.
Cleveland. Governor Hill is consequently
quently a very interesting person.
The salient feature of the speech of
Mr. Hill ut the liny State club banquet
was his deprecation of the confirmatory
power of the United States sounto. His
declaration of opposition to this power
was important us voicing the growing
feeling of hostility with the democ
racy to the upper branch of congress ,
which has had a notable development
since the democratic administration
came into power. Mr. Hill is too
careful a politician to make any mistake
in a mutter of this kind. Ho has un
doubtedly felt the party pulse most care
fully and knows its direction. The sen-
ute is an obstacle to the unchecked exor
cise of executive prerogative in the dis
tribution of patrouaao , and Mr. Hill and
the democrats who agree with him a
very largo majority of the party , it is not
doubted would abolish this senatorial
power , and leave to the president the
untramelod right to appoint all public
officers subject to executive selection
appointing thorn , as the governor stated
it , in recognition of faithful party ser
vice , and not upon merely sentimental
grounds. In other words , it ought to bo
the privilege of n president to foist upon
the public service , without any right of
inquiry or objection on the part
of the representatives of the people ,
any uumbor of Hlgginsos , Thomases
and man of like ilk , who are com
mended to him as having rendered faith
ful party service , which seemingly is the
chief if not the only requirement whioh
democrats llko Governor Hill would de
With no intention to at present discuss
the matter , wo rotor to the views of Gov
ernor Hill merely to note the drift of
democratic sentiment in a very important
direction , The country has soon a long
established right of the sonuto to demand
certain information relative to removals
from and appointments to ollico chal
lenged and combiittcd by n domooratin
administration , and later the democratic
governor of the greatest state in the
union , in a spocch to adcinocratia assem
blage which ho know would reach demo
cratic attention in every section of the
country , proclaims opposition to the exercise -
ciso of confirmatory power by the senate ,
nnd counsels the withdrawal of a prerogative -
rogativo given that body by the
f rumors of the constitution as a
safeguard to the public service. Coin
ing from n mun of loss consequence in
the party than Governor Hill , such a
proposition might not challenge atten
tion , but as his careful utterance , made
with an obdous purpose , It is worthy of
something moro than a passing consid
eration. Evidently the democracy has
not abandoned all ot Ha destructive ten

There is another general freight war

There is no advantage In the long run
to cither shipper or consumer in this sort
of business. Public interest demands
fair aud stable rates on the railroads , not
a varying scale that takes a dollar ono
week from the cost of transporting n bar
rel of sugar , and adds that amount nnd
half us much more In another
week to cover the loss. Uailroad
wars mean loss to the company
and unsettled trade to the merchant ,
while they make liltlo difference to pur
chasers. 'Iho normal rate charged is
always used by retailers as a basis from
which to figure the transportation cost of
the article and the profit to ho dnrivcd
from Its salo. The Invariable ofi"oct of
the spasmodically low rates of a railroad
war is to force merchants to overstock in
order to reap the temporary advantage
of the reductions. In most oases the
supposed advantage Is moro than dis
counted by thoinlcrcstcharjrcs on money
borrowed to carry the overloaded stock.
A Questionable l'ru.cct. |
As a means of confuting the assump
tion of a lory organ in London that na
tive born Americans arc not generally
in sympathy with the cause of homo rule ,
and that tiio agitation in this country is
not supported by American public
opinion , it has been proposed to hold in
New York a mass meeting composed ex
clusively of native born Americans to
express sympathy with the Irish cause.
It is said thatsucli a snouting may bo hold
on the -ah of July , and It Is the plan of
the projectors to make it us distinguished
as possible by securing the attendance
of prominent public man out of politics
and conspicuous ministers bf the gospel ,
the latter more particularly to demon
strate that the agitation on this side is
not chielly countenanced and stimulated
by Iho Catholic clergy. Wo are disposed
to doubt whether such a meeting is
necessary , expedient , or would bo of any
real advantage to the cause of home
rule. So far as the assumption of
the lory organ is concerned , it
was doubtless made almost wholly
as a picco of buncombe , and there
are not half a thousand of the
most radical tories iu London who will
believe it. The opponents of homo rule
in Great Britain know perfectly well that
the American people are almost unani
mous in supporting the Irish cause , and
that in the very nature of tilings they
could not entertain any different senti
ment. They must know this from the
utterances of the American press , with
out regard to political distinctions and cer
tainly wholly regardless of considerations
of Irish patronage , from the declarations
of prominent citizens who have nothing
to ask or to hope from the Irish vote , from
the expressions of societies composed
chielly of native born Americans , and
from the enunciations of clergymen of
every Protestant denomin.ition who are
Americans. We do not believe that a
mass mooting in Now York which it is
suggested might bu followed by others in
the larger cities of the country could
add anything to the force of the tes
timony already at command show
ing the sympathy of Americans
with the cause of Ireland , and if this is
not sullicient to satisfy skeptical English
men of the character of popular senti
ment on this subject iu the United States
mass meetings will not accomplish that
perhaps desirable result. The expedi
ency of the proposed method is also ques
tionable. Have wo , as n people , any duty
m the matter which requires that wo
should proclaim our opinion in the way
proposed ? Would it bo a legitimate anil
proper proceeding for the American people
ple , as native born Americans , to thus
formally and systematically take sides'
in a controversy with which this country
has no direct interest as a nation , except
as it afl'ccts a sentiment or principle in
which we believe ? Is it , in a word , well
for us to mcddlo , in the manner sug
gested , with the political nfltiirs of other
peoples ? And if there is neither necessity
nor undoubted expediency to justify us ,
is it not probable that the cause of Ire-
laud would bo quite as likely to lose us to
gain by the proposed proceeding , which
many Englishmen now well disposed
toward Ireland might regard as unwar
ranted olliciousnoss ?
The Freight lliircuu.
The Omaha freight bureau can bo , and
no doubt will bo , of great assistance to
the merchants of this city in ferreting
out and bringing to the attention of the
railroad managers the continued discrim
inations which are boiug made against
Omaha by roads operating in. the stato.
The bureau and its commissioner possess
a great advantage in being backed by an
ollldont railway law on the statute books ,
which will enforce itself if the railroad
managers discover that the ma
chinery to compel nn enforcement
of its provisions is at hiiud. Oma
ha has now reached a stage when
all sha as'Usou behalf of her merchants is
a fair Hold and no favors. She docs not
shrink from competition if it can bo mot
open and above board , lint her merchants
can not alul will not permit themselves
to bo handicapped by a continuance of
discriminations whoso eflbct is to illegally
build up rival interests at her expense.
By pooling their interests in the freight
bureau and making their Individual com
plaints through an authorized spokesman
for aid our shippers will bo relieved from
fears of corporation displeasure
which not many years ago was dangled
like thu Dainoclcan sword over the heads
of merchants who dared to criticize the
lawless methods of Nebraska corpora
tions , On the other hand an organiza
tion llko the ono now In active operation
will do much to expedite the work of the
railroads in investigating complaints ;
many of which slumber in pigeon-holes ,
because unintelligible or improperly pre
sented for investigation.
Ouu special dispatches show that the
marvelous growth of South Omaha with
its stock yards and its beef and pork
packing conccins is causing serious
alarm among thosa interested in the same
class of business iu Chicago. The pres
ence of Mr , Haw ; in Ouialm representing
a number of Chicago capitalists who desire -
sire to transfer their stock interests to
South Omaha seems to have stirred up a
genuine hornet's nest on the board
of trade. Chicago newspapers
have been busy Interviewing fetich
loaders of the board us Armour nnd Mo-
Neil , with results by no moans reassuring
to thn interviewers , These best qualified
to know do not hesitate to say that the
development of South Omaha means the
growth of the largest cattle market nnd
the heaviest meatpacking Industry on
the continent. It Means "n decreasing
business" for the 'Clifcfigo stock yards ,
said an honest Chicago.- , and his state
ment will bo fully endorsed by all un
biased observers. South Omaha's
future Is already assured. Thrco
now and giant packing nnd canning
industries will bo in operation
before the close of the season. The
Hammonds and 1'owlors and Uptons are
already hero , and tli < S Armours and
I.ibbys cannot afibrd not to follow suit.

The sensible citizen of Ari/ona Is beginning -
ginning to make himself heard in lomt
complaints of the changed conditions of
airairs since Iho valiant bragadoclo Miles
precipitated himself upon the territory
to wind up Iho Apache war In tnlrty days
campaigning. There has been cam
paigning enough , in nil conscience. Two
regiments of cavalry are worn out and
practically dismantled. Hundreds of
horses have broken down in fruitless
marches up the mountains and down the
canyons. Thn neighboring departments
have been stripped of troops until nearly
it not quite n quarter of the entire
army is iinderGeiieral Miles' command ,
but Goronimo is still at largo doing in
finitely moro damage than over before ,
and carrying lire and the sword from San
Carlos to Sonora. The sensible citizen
notes with disgust that since General
Miles'arrival moro settlers have been
massacred , moro soldiers killed , moro
ranches raided and moro outrages com
mitted by Indians than iu the two years
previous under General George Crook ,
whoso much maligned policy General
Miles has sought to overturn ,
In making good Indians , the main
thing is to first ca'.ch your Indian.
General Miles has yet to learn
the les on that strategy parley
and brains are often better in sav
age warfare than heavy reinforcements
which cannot be used , even when sup
plied. Crook and his Indian scouts
saved soldiers. lie substituted tiie fruits
of long experience for needless muskets ,
and found diplomacy backed by a small
but willing command superior to bluster
and rattle-brained , wild gooo chases ,
where common sense informed him suc
cess was impossible. "General Crook
will be loudly called for nero again , "

Though amid many mistakes , the recent -
cent revolt of labor promise good. As
never before , the workingman has be

of and duration and compensation of a
day's service. Hov. Mr. Tulmago to the
contrary , the laborer will have a voice iu

Moreover , this just and kindly copart
nership between the two mutually re
lated factors of labor and capital will
convert the the worker from a quasi serf ,
doomed to the treadmill of his unvarying
