Lesi than ft year ago the proprietors 'o
the BEE ventured upon changes in tin
mechanical department of this establish
mcnt which involved an outlay of $25,00' ' )
The investment In fast presses was fol
lowed by an enlargement of the paper
an increase in the editorial start" , am
largely Improved telegraph and news
gathering facilities. Tito result of thosi
costly improvements 1ms boon the pro
dilution of ( vmetropolitan dally that is excelled
celled by no nanor in any city of 200,00 , :
people. Another important and cos tl ;
feature has recently boon added by tin
purchase of the New York Herald cabli
The running expenses of the WEE havi
now reached $500 n day , an increase o
$3,800 per month , or $37.000 per year eve
what they were one year ngo. That oui
venture was justillotl is shown by the fac
that moro than 4,1)00 ) subscribers lmv <
been added to our dally list sino
July 1,1883. Having covered the Hold ai
no other paper west of the Mlssisslpp
has succeeded in doing , the advertising
patrons of the BEE have received the fill
benefit of Its enterprise. They have bcci
taken into our conliiloncc , without ro
servo. We have given thorn access to oui
press room nnd kept our books open foi
inspection to verify the sworn statements
monts of circulation. No other paper li
this section has been in a position to shov
its actual subscription list.
The true value of an advertising mod
him is in the extent of its circulation
While our rates are much higher thar
these of other papers , the BEE Is as t
matter of fact the cheapest as well as the
best advertising medium west of Chicago
No other paper in America covers tin
local field so thoroughly. The cxhibit-o
city circulation , which wo make olso'
wherein this issue , demonstrates Urn
the BEE has no competitor in Omaha
Wo have gone to the trouble and expense
penso of this newspaper census with m
design to make war upon anj particuliv
paper , since wo have not for years hat
any business rivalry with thorn. Wi
Imvo undertaken this task solely with !
view of justifying the advertising rate :
which the BEE exacts for tlio use of it
columns. This is by no moans a nove
undertaking. It has been done ty
papers in other cities whore bonus circu
litlion claimants have imposed upon ai
unsuspecting public , and have obtainct
money under false pretenses.
The enterprising business man who depends
ponds on the newspaper largely for hi :
success will now bo in a condition tc
judco whether ho is getting his money' ;
worth by patronizing tlio BEE , and thosi
who have heretofore felt outraged whoi
bills were presented by us that won

The action of the judiciary committei
of tlio United States senate on the Becl
resolution finds no reputable apologis
outside of the senate chamber , which i :
unfortunately dominated by the influence
of the attorneys of subsidized corpora
tions. The arrogance df this action , it
the face of public opinion , is unparalleled
and the shamelessncss ot tbo-mcnrospon
siblo for it Is well illustrated by a state
montof the Washington corrosnomlcn
of the Now York Evening Post , who state *
that within n few weeks the two mostdis
tinguished members of the judiciary com
mil too loft the senate to go into the supreme
promo court to argue cases for subsidized
roads against a state government. Tin !
correspondent also states that the com
mittco undertook two years ago to ontoi
into negotiations with the Union nnt
Central Pacific railroads , guaranteeing t <
prevent the passage of acts aflectinf
those companies for a certain period
The committee has boon trying to frauii
a bill that would bo acceptable to the rail
road companies , nnd has drawn threi
bills to this end because the railroad !
objected to the first two am
approved of the third , but it has deter
mined to lay the whole subject over unti
next winter. The session of next wintci
will DO short , and the 'attorneys of tin
railroad companies in the committee am
their associates who nro not in employment
mont , but who have the natural tendencies
doncios of lawyers for rich corporations
will got the whole subject postponoc
again for a year. All this shows unmis
takably that tlio senate committee on tin
judiciary is to all intents and purpose ;
owned by the great railroad corporation :
which the nation has subsidized , nnd tha
so long as that committee is constltutet
as at present no legislation obnoxious t <
those corporations , however urgently
demanded by the public interests , wil
bo had if the judiciary committee cm
prevent it. The fact , so amply demon
stratcd , that the loading committee of tin
sonata is the moro creature of great cor
poratlons , solicitous only of their interests
osts and wishes regardless of those of tin
people , is alike disgraceful and doplor
A DocllnliiK Statesman.
It is a fact to be noted with regret thai
among the public men of the country
none has lost so rapidly and surely in tin
confidence of the people during the pas
few months as Senator Edmunds , o
Vermont. The telegraph has noted tha
in the course of a rather sharp colloqui
in Iho senate a few days ago Genera
Logan applied the term "pestiferous" t <
Mr. Edmunds , and unhappily the char
acterization is amply justified by the recent
cent course of the senator. Two yean
ago , and since that time , Mr. Edmundi
was regarded by a largo body of the people
plo as pro-eminoutly the ropresontativ <
in public lifo of the highest order of in
tcgrity and inccorruptibillty , The sraal
contingent which gave him its support u
the Chicago convention us a presidents
candidate , did so in the proud conscious
ness that whatever question there rnigh
bo nSspooting his availability , his upright
ness of character was unassailable , Thej
pointed to him as a leader "without feu1
and without reproach , " and their elain
was not seriously disputed. There ma ;
have been men at that time who'knov
that Mr. Edmunds was receiving a largo :
credit at the hands of his Admirers that
ha was entitled to , but if so they did no
proclaim their knowledge , and the fao
that his supporters could marshal so fov
under bis banner wna held by them to b <
a tribute to his great honesty of clianio
tor , ivliloU the politicians feared.
TLs contingent would ba found ox
treniely small which would to-day havi
the * hardihood to support Mr , Kdtmiml
KB t > pro&idoutial candidate , and we venture
turo to suy would not include ouo of thi
reputable men whoso mistaken confidenci
led them to support him two years ago
in it that Lr.s de.'trovwl faith lu tin
the Vermont scnatorf lit ;
distinguished ability as A lawyer Is fltil
acknowledged. Ills great services in ad
vancing the principles ot his party
through which tlio general welfare was
promoted , are not and cannot bo denied
The loss of faith Is duo to the clrcum
stni-cc that Mr , Edmunds has been fount
capable of prostituting his position as s
servant of the people to the willing serv
ice of corporate wealth and monopolistic
power owing existence nnd nil the right. '
and privileges enjoyed to the gcncrositj
of the pcoplo. It is because in all the
c ( Torts that have been nuulo to check the
rapacity and oppression of corporate
greed and power , nnd to compel the crca *
turcs of public magnanimity to conforn :
to the contracts which give them the
right to exist , in order that the public in
tercsts shall bo justly subserved , Mr. Ed
munds has always been found on the side
of the corpoiations. And nil tlio worli'
knows that this is not * a service of duty oi
conscience , but of lilro tuc return made
for princely retainers as an attorney ol
wealthy corporations. Mr. Edmunds'if
unfortunately not nlono in this
prostitution of senatorial duty anil
position , but ho has boon moro conspicu
ously audacious in proclaiming it than
any of the others who are equally culpa
ble witli him. If there Is any merit in
bravely doing a wrong thing , it must be
accorded to the Vermont senator in con
nection with ids course in this mat'cr. ' .
Ho may have haci recourse to devious
ways , as in respect to the Beck resolu
tion , but ho has not gene behind the
bush. Ho has not permitted any doubt
to prevail as to the direction in which
his favor would bo extended , and ho is
known of all inun , and most surely of the
men who manage nnd manipulate the
great subsidized railroad corporations ,
as the outspoken and faithful advocate
and champion of corporate power. No
man can servo two musters , and in serv
ing the corporations Mr. Ed munds must
inevitably bo unfaithful to the people.
In this light the pcoplo are compelled to
regard the recent oourso of Mr. Edmunds ,
and that confidence in his integrity and
respect for his wisdom , winch only a little
while ago ho possessed to a degree
hardly equalled by any other man in
public lifo , are no longer his. In a few
brief months ho has demolished thai
which it took him 5roars of honorable ser
vice to acquire , and which Is the fairest
and surest monument a man can have
the faith of the people.
An Issue That Must Ba Mot.
When the high license law lirst wont
into efl'cct it was nullified by Mayor Boyd
and City Attorney Manderson. The law
very distinctly requires that each appli
cant for license shall pay $1,000 before he
can legally vend liquor. It as distinctly
gives the board that issues the license
discretion to refuse license to any appli
cant. It expressly prohibits the issue of
a license to keepers of disorderly houses
or to parties who are notorious law break
ers. The right and duty of the board to
exercise its discretionary power to refuse
license to any party who proposes to
plant a saloon next to a lire engine house ,
a school house or a church , can hardly bo
called into question. When a protest is
made against the location of a saloon in
such a neighborhood by respectable and
law abiding citizens , their duty becomes
imperative. This was the position upon
which wo planted ourselves five years
ago , when the editor of this paper per
sonally appeared before the board to pretest -
test against the indiscriminate licensing
of saloons without regard to the
character of the keepers. Had this
protest been heeded and the law been
strictly enforced , Omaha would not now
be the only city in Nebraska where the
plain provisions of the high license law
are openly disregarded by the city au
thorities. The position which Judge
Dundy has taken as the representative
of many other citizens and property
owners in the Second ward , is eminently
correct and should bo sustained. Judge
Duudy expounded the high license law
before the license board , exactly as the
supreme court has ruled upon it and
would rule upon it again. The
supreme court has decided that
the right to refuse license is absolutely
vested in the board , and its manifest duty
is to reject any application for license
where order and public safety are endan
gered. Mayor Boyd has from the outset
treated tills subject as ho has treated other
municipal law-breaking. Ho says "they
all do it , " or "they do it elsewhere , "
therefore "I propose to keep down the
bars nnd to license everybody that can
get up a petition and has the money to
pay. Wo do not hope to influence Mayor
Boyd on tills issue. Ho wants to make
political capital out of a controversy
which Involves no politics whatever. It
is simply n question of law nnd order and
the exercise of police powers ,
The issue must bo mot nnd the board
should curry out the spirit as well as tlio
letter of the law. There is no charge that
Raflerty keeps a disorderly house or that
ho is a disreputable citizen. The ques
tion is whether the board will respect the
wishes and rights of other citizens whoso
religious exorcises would bo disturbed
and whoso families would bo annoyed by
Mr. Kaflbrty1 s. bar-room. There arc many
places in tlio ward where no protest will
bo mado. Lot Mr. Itaflorty locate thoro.
Incidentally wo desire to warn the
friends of high license , as well as tha
liquor dealers , against the inevitable re
sult of the connivance of city authori
ties at the open violation of the plain
provisions of the law , Unless high
license is made oiTcotivo by a ropcal of
the fast nnd loose ordinance under which
the sale of liquor lj now regulated , wo
shall have tlio turmoil and bitter conflict
which prohibition will precipitate. The
wise thing and the proper thing to do
will bo to repeal the illegal ordinance
and replace it by one dravvn in perfect
accord with the Jaw. Tiio law-abiding
and reputable class of dealers are in
favor of such n change for their own
protection , and those who nro always
outside of the law should not influence
our law makers. .

sumo the reins of government nnd tin
lories will bo forced to shoulder Hit
heavy load of ndmlnistra\on ! with thrct
factions in opposition \vlih a heavy com
blued majority against every principle
of lory policy. As < Justin McCarthy
aptly puts it , the lories will bt

Salisbury will bo to reproduce Disraeli * !

Rumors are already current that one ol
the first acts of thn now government wil

for local self government , which is onlj
another nainn for "homo rule. "
James O'Kelly in his letter makes r
suggestion that a coalition with Harttng

The Omaha presbytery have not j-ot
passed upon the request of Rev. Thomas
Hall , to bo permitted to retire from the
pastorate of the south-west Prebylcrlan
church. They will doubtless have an
unpleasant task when they untertako to
consider it in connection with the re
monstrance against tlio request which
lias been filed with the same body , by
Mr. Hall's parishioners. No matter what
may bo the decision of the presbytery ono
of tlio parties will bo moro or less un
pleasantly nflectcd. If the decision
should refuse consent to Mr. Hall to
dissolve his relations with his church
here , it would compel him to do
ono of two thhigs to como back to
Omaha or decline to bo holdcn by the
finding. If it should result in favor of
Mr. Hall's going to Chicago , it would be
a serious blow to the members of the
Southwest Presbyterian church who seem
inconsolable over the leaving of Mr.llall.
Strongly as he is appreciated in Omaha ,
ho is not less admired by the people of
Chicago , whoso spiritual .charge ho has
now assumed. The latter have been en
deavoring to secure him for several
mouths back , and have writ
ten him a number of letters -
tors on the subject. To all of those ho
steadfastly gave a negative answer. A
short time ago.howovcr.a committee of the
members came to town , and after a long
discussion , returned homo with the assurance -
suranco that Mr. Hall would bo their
The church whose call ho has accepted
is situated on Wabasli avenue , near For
ty-third street , in ono of the most aristo
cratic districts of the city. Its member
ship is composed of the most in
telligent and wealthy pcoplo in that
part of town. They have guaranteed
to him a salary of $4,000 a vent ,
which has already commenced. They
have also promised to build a church to
cost ? 10,000. Besides this , ho is to
have a furnished parsonage , which
will bo ready for his occupancy
when , a few months from this , ho returns
with his wife from a trip to Europe.
From a secular standpoint , it readily ap
pears that most pastors woultl bo likely
to accept such hundsomo induccniontis ,
when contrasted with others by no means
so advantageous , such us Mr. Hall ex
perienced liero , His salary had been
& 700 , but is believed recently to have been
laised to § 1,000 per year. His parsonage
ho had recently nought , or at least de
cided to buy it , when ho found that an
eastern party , learning his appreciation
of it , anticipated him by paying what it
cost and making him a present of it.
The church , so to speak , was mainly built
by himself. His eastern connections ate
such that contributions poured in
from them in such amounts as
to practically put the building out of
debt. Yet , witli this statement of facts ,
it is not believed that superior pecuniary
advantages induced Mr. Hall in making
his change. Ho is almost Independently
wealthy himself , while his lather. Rev.
John Hall , of Now York , is also posesscd
of a liberal fortune. The salary the son
rceelvctl is known to have been spent in
chanty , thus compelling him to fall back
on his income , which is ample enough to
enable him to enjoy lifo. The solo mo
tive of Mr. Hall's change , therefore , Is
believed to bo based on the fact that oven
with superior surroundings , ho is capable
of doing much more good. The action
of the presbytery will bo watched with
interest.- _
