THE administration has achieved a little
glory from the bouncing of a chief of di
vision in the treasury department who
had furnished a couple of candidates for
promotion the questions prepared for the
examination , but inasmuch as similar
bronchus of faith had occurred before and
were well known to the heads of the
treasury , this ebullition of virtue came a
little late to merit the laudation which
most of the mugwump reform journals
, liavc bestowed upon it , A very little
nutter , however , Is sniliciont to send
these papers into an ccstacy of praise of
the administration , which is indirectly
their Holf-glorllicatJon. In Iho catalogue
of humbugs civil service reform , as prac
ticed nnitor the present administration ,
isn't at the foot of the list.
Tin : American Opera company has not
liad an altogether happy experience with
Chicago , Wlion the company went to

opera so finely presented and rendered ,
, .the season was not prosperous , simply
Tjocause a certain social bet or clique had
taken offense at a fancied slight ana sulkily -
ily refused to patronize the entertain
ments. For the same reason a good deal
of dlfllculty was found in organizing
there a branch association , which , but
for the rare zeal and energy of Mrs ,
Thurbor and Mr , Thomas , would prob
ably not have been accomplished , Now
the company is in another Chicago com
plication , It appears that the manager ,
or someone acting for him , engaged Me-
Vickcr's theater for the beasons of 16CO-7 ,
Imt a higher authority annulled the con
tract and engaged the Columbia. A
liioly wrangle , with the promise of a
lawsuit , is the result , and thn chance is
that the company will again bo the loser
by its Chicago seasons. This is to be re-
# r0Ucd , since the enterprise merits the
jirgest measure of prosperity- Hut if
Chicago will not bo decent and show
proper appreciation of a good thing , it
may bo found judicious and economical
to drop it from the list of towns to be
fevered with the vlsiU of the American

It is very unfortunate for General
Logan that lie has forced upon the coun
try a controversy between himself and
the editor of a great republican daily.
General Logan , like many other public
men , is altogether too touchy about the
press and I Is criticisms , fn the dispute
between hiniFcIf and Alurat Ilnlslead , ho
will light tiudcr great disadvantage.
General Lognn was a bravo commander
( ri the union armies during the war and
has beer a staunch republican since 5U
close. Hut his record before the war
was that of a rabid democrat with
southern pro-slavery sympathies. Ho
supported the bills to make Kansas and
Nebraska slave territories , and wns a
most outspoken champion of the fugitive
f > lave act. Murat llalslead has recalled
these historic lacts under just provoca
tion , ami no matter how nitiny thunder
bolts General Logan may launch at his
adversary , ho cannot undo the truth of
history. In a long career as an editor of
a leading republican daily , llalstcad has
doubtless done some injustice to some of
the greatest public men , in his xcal for a
vigorous conduct of the war or his
bitter assaults upon jobbery in the
republican party which for years hung
around its neck like a millstone.
General Logan's controversy with Hal-
stead recalls forcibly his quarrel with
Pixlcy , in the national republican conven
tion of 1834 , where ho mounted a table in
his coat sleeves and blackguarded a Cali
fornia editor llko a Billingsgate fish-
woman. That incident did not raise
General Logan in the esteem of his ad
mirers. His assault on llalstcad on the
lloor of Ilio senate , because the great Cin
cinnati editor rcbuk'cd him for thro'tling
the investigation into the bribery / the
Ohio legislature .by Senator Payne's
Standard Oil monopoly , will meet with
no approval from honest republicans in
A MiiKiiltJoent Hcnernotion.
There is no fact which belter illus
trates the growth of liberal views and
principles in this era than the enlarged
attention winch has been given within a
few years to the problem of the higher
education of woman , and the greatly
augmented efforts that have been put
forth for its solution. One by one the
barriers to woman's opportunity for securing -
curing equal educational privileges with
men have gone down before the growth
of enlightened and liberal sentiment ,
until now there remains but few impedi
ments anywhere to women enjoying all
the advantages for acquiring the higher
forms of education that arc vouchsafed to
the "lords of creation. " The crust of
old prejudices has been broken , and the
ancient faith which hardly more than a
generation ago was orthodox : with the
great body of educators has become a re
proach. In her right to all the knowl
edge that the schools can give , the ver
dict of the ago is that woman is the equal
of her brother.
In this , as in all other conditions of
progress , tbo United States of course
led the way , and this country
is not oaly far in advance of
every other nation in the educational
Advantages afforded to woman , but has
gone to lengths which half a century ago
would have been thought almost itnpos ;
siblo and perhaps even dangerous. There
is every reason to expect that before the
expiration of another decade there will
not lie a great college in the land where
women will not be admitted on a fooling
of perfect equality with men.
It is gratifying to find that the example
of this country is Hinting vigorous ohm-
lation , and it is not ininossible that an
other generation may hnd England chal
lenging our supremacy in this direction.
Only a few days ago tiiero was dedicated
by Queen Victoria a building to bo devoted -
voted to the education of women , which
in respect ot its extent , architectural
beauty , completeness of facilities , and
general material equipment , is the finest
institution of learning in the world , the
cost of the edifice being over five million
dollars. It is called the "Royal Holloway
College ' and the project originated with
the late Mrs. Holloway , who is not
to bo less honored for her magni
ficent benefaction because the great
fortune which enabled her to
make it was achieved by
the manufacture of pills that made the
name oi Holloway a household word the
world over. Everything has been pro
vided in the construction of this college
for the comfort and convenience of the
two hundred and fifty students it will
accommodate , each one of whom will
have a sleeping room and study to her
self , while its surrounding of gardens
and lawns will enable the fair attendants
to indulge as opportunity permits in out-
of-door diversions ,
The educational design of the college
is cast upon a broad anil liberal plan. It' '
will not be the nursery of aristocracy nor'
a school of fashion. It will instruct In
the liberal arts , and will aim to equip
those who avail themselves of Its advan
tages with an adequate knowledge of the
needs of modern life and the qualifications
to meet them , The 0011180 of instruction
extends over four years , and no student
will bo admitted under the ago of seven
teen. It will not bo a sectarian institu
tion , and in short will in all respects , if
the design of Us originator Is carried out ,
bo conducted agreeably to- the advanced
and progressive views of the ago. Every
friend of education , and particularly of
the higher education of woman , must
feel a deep interest In this splendid addi
tion to the world's institutions of loaming -
ing , and will sincerely hope that those
charged with its government will have
the wisdom to see and achieve its highest
possibilities , ,
About Time to 1-ct Up.
It Is getting tiresome , if not sickening ,
to have Mayor Uoyd's jackdaw chatterIng -
Ing from week to week and month to
month about Marshal Cummings1 respon
sibility for every disturbance , assault ,
burglary or murder that happens in
Omaha , or within two miles of it. The
recent street car robbery in the out
skirts is now charged up to the marshal.
If Mr. IJoyd only had his own sweet
will about the chief of police , Angels
would bo marshals and sluggers would
bo angels. There are pcoplo in the com
munity who remember when Mayor
Uoyd did have a marshal after his own
heart , Was there less crime jn Omaha
then ? Is it not notorious that more people
ple were knocked down and robbed ,
more burglaries commuted , and more
general disorder in Omaha than at any
time since ?
But Omaha to-day Is not the city it was
five years ago. The territory covered is
tully live times as large and the popula
tion double , while the police force has
not been materially increased. Mr.
Uoyd's jackdaw denounces the marshal
for falling to dlspalehdetcctivesafter the
car robbers and insists that dimming- :
could , if ho was only competent , put a
stop to all raldson property and persons ,
Where arc tno detectives to come from
when the marshal hasn't n dollar at his
disposal for such a purpo. e ? How could
any marshal know just the exact spot in
the suburbs of the city , or , for th.it mat
ter , in the business center , where some
foot-pad or slugcer lies in wait for a vic
tim ? Are not the papers h'llcd with re
ports of robberies , burglaries and petti1
crimes committed in the largest Ameri
can cities , where regiments of police on
foot and on horseback are rn-lnforced by
regiments of private patrolmen ?
It Is nothing uncommon now for people
ple walking in the parks of the large cit
ies to bo waylaid nml robbed nnd the
most mysterious murders and burglaries
occur every day in Boston , New York ,
Chicago and other largo cities. Last
week llvo.safe burglaries took place In
Fulton market , Now York , in a block pa >
trolled by police nnd only a few doors
from u station house. Any family or cit
izen in Omaha to-dny is exposed to less
danger from the lawless classes than in
the largest cities in the country.
There is not a householder in New
York , Philadelphia or Chicago , who fools
safe in leaving his shutters open at night
or his door unlocked at any time of the
day. Sneak thieves walk from house to
house carrying off clothing from the
halls. Pickpockets by the hundreds walk
the streets nnd Infest the retail shops un
der the very noses ot the police. In
Omaha hundreds of houses have open
doors all day and at night pcoplo sleep
very soundly and safely without inside
shutters and iron barn. Tor a city of
75,000 people with such a binall police
force Omaha will compare favorably
with any other American city. To make
Marshal Cumniings responsible for what
little crime does take place is sheer mal
ice and political clap-trap.
Not a Clioerliiir Outlook.
It is reported from "Washington that
the congressional democratic campaign
committeois not in u very sound and
healthy condition to enter upon the fall
campaign which confronts it , and which
will call lor all the energy and vigor that
he democracy can command. The com
mittee is almost destitute of funds , and
the promise of enriching the treasury is
not regarded as flattering. Thus far it
has been unable to employ any regular
clerical force , and this work has been
done by men detailed from the depart
ments after oflico hours. The democratic
clerks in the public service have offered
contributions to the committee , but these
have been declined as conflicting with
the civil service law. The men from
whom liberal contributions should come
have not presented themselves and there
is no assurance that they will. It is this
condition of affairs which led a promi
nent member of the committo to remark
a few davs ago that "at present things
look mighty blue. "
Of course the party managers
will not permit their national com
mittee lo remain in this forlorn
and impecunious condition. As soon as
congress adjourns there will bo a tre
mendous effort made to gather the "sin
ews of war" and to push the campaign
with boldness and vigor. Nevertheless ,
the present situation is significant of the
demoralization that prevails among the
democrats ' at Washington , and is worthy
of regard a's suggesting the difficulties the
party must encounter before the pcoplo.
It cannot bo doubted that were the party
entirely harmonious , without factional
divisions among "its representatives in
congress , the leaders working shoulder
to shoulder for a common end , and the
administration enjoying the confluence
and support of the majority of the demo
crats in congress and. the country , there
would bo no complaint of the national
committee being unable to prosecute its
work for want of money , ft would not
only have an abundance of means , but
all the enthusiasm which a harmonious
and confident party could inspire it with.
But such is not the case with the dem
ocracy. The party has been at
war with itself ever since
the present administration came
into power , and its internal contentions
have steadily grown more bitter , its fac
tional dissensions more implacable. In
congress the accredited leaders have
fought each other upon almost every
leading question of public policy , acting
together only upon a proposition tli.it car
ried with it the condemnation of a cardi
nal policy of the democratic administra
tion. The country has seen a democratic
president and secretary of the treasury
pleading for ti consideration of their
views by the representatives of their
party in congress , only to have their ap
peal thrown back into their faces by nu
overwhelming majority. It bus seen the
pledge of the party to give the people
revenue reform defeated at the beck of
an arrogant factional leader , nnd it has
witnessed the exceptional fact of the ex
ecutive being compelled to condemn the
extravagance , the folly and the negll-
gcnco of his party friends in concress by
an array of vetoes but little exceeded in
number by those of all the president *
who preceded him.
This is the record which shows the cx >
tent of democratic demoralization , and
for which the party must answer to the
people. No party was over more heavily
handicapped by sins of omission and
commission , and it is not'surprising
under the circumstances that its national
committee Is penniless at the treshhold
of a most important campaign , the result
of which will go far to determine the
immediate future of the party. Only
those who have little faith In the intelli
gence of the people can seriously douDt
what tholr verdict will bo on the party
which , with every advantage on its side ,
has made such a record.
IT is to bo regretted that Mr. Powdorly ,
who is quite generally believed to be a
man ot good common sense and honest in
tentions , should occasionally fctray so far
from these conditions as to warrant a
doubt whotlier ho is really a man of well-
balanced judgment and sincerity ot pur
pose. A little while ago , in addressing
some workingmcn in the cast , Mr. Pow-
dcrly referred to the militia as a barrier
standing between labor and capital , the
apparent design being to incite a hostile
spirit against the militia , and the whole
spirit of the remarks being of that dema
gogic eort which those who-desire to ro-
sptjct the man would not expect from
him. More recently , in addressing the
green-glass boltlctblowcrs at Atlantli
City , after saying lhatiho hoped toseo tlu
day when not a drop of any liquid wouhi
bo poured from a bottle not made h
America and by Aijicrjcan workmen , Mr
Powclurly told his audience that any hot
tie brought into his house docs notgc
back , and Infcnmtially advised thai
other men ought to destroy bottles thai
came into their possession. Now this is
simply puerile , and it Mr. Powderlygoo ;
on proclaiming such unmitigated non
sense as this it will be at least charitable
lo believe that overwork has impaired hi'
intellect. It is hardly credible that even
bottle-blowers could bo Influenced l > j
such obvious absurdity as this , and If Mr
Powdcrly delivered himself of such stull
with the Idea of strengtlipning his claim
to the support of intelligent worklngmeii

SOMI : citizens are protecting against

LOOAN'S attack on Murat
llalstcad was unwise. Politicians with
musty records make a mistake in boast
ing that they smell mould on the con
cealed records of others. No one doubts
the loyally of either Murat Halstcad or
General Logan. But it is a tact that
neither was at one time possessed of stieh
stalwart republicanism as that which
they now assume.

Novelists Dcntl ami Alivo.
Colonel Jttdson , whoso death was re
cently announced , was not a writer of the
modern school. As "Ned Buntlinc" he
wrote and published more blood and
thunder trash than any other ton men
who ever lived. He made money at it ,
too. Only a few months ago lie retired to
his country scat on the. Hudson , there to
spend his closing days in the possession
of a fortune which novelists of greater
pretensions than he would gladly ex
change all their prospects for. Ho was a
prolific writer , and as his readers did not
tire of his work , and were willing to pay
tor it , he may bo said lo have contributed
his full share to thesum of human enjoy
ment , it not to human enlightenment.
Ned Buntline's stories had plots and
counter-plots and any amount of go TO
Mr. Howells will write a book of100
pages and describe no casualty which
will call for anything more serious than
a piece of court-plaster. Hunllino killed
somebody in every chapter. Mr. James
will analyze a character mi til the reader
fancies ho can see his "innards" on the
printed paaro before him , liunltino made
shorter work of it by letting some villain
rip open his hero with a choeso-knitc. An
incident which would afford Howells
enough of a plot to hang u twenty-live
chapter story on would be lo Uuntlinc
only of enough importance to mention
parenthetically , and all the plot , narra
tive , or anything else of human Interest
in one of James1 books would have been
compressed by lluntlino into a ttrofaco.
But Buntline pleased his readers , and
Howells and James do theirs also that
is to any , some of them.
Perhaps if the "two great American
novelists" had seen as much of life as
Buntline had when ho began writing
stories they would have produced a moro
stalwart species of romance by this time.
The dilettante author is not to bo blamed
for giving his work a watery llavor when
lie has never had an opportunity to revel
in gore. Buntline passed his youth in
the navy , and when v > thcr midshipmen
refused to associate will ) him , because ho
had served "before the mast , " hu chal
lenged thirteen of them to mortal combat.
Seven of them accepted and wore
"marked for lifo" by his "unerring rifle. "
lie was chief of scouts in thoContedorato
army , in which service ho received twelve
wounds , many of them very severe. After
the war ho went to Nashville * , nnd in a
dispute with a gentleman whoso Wife
Buntline had estranged inn author shot
and killed him , afterward escaping a
mob by jumping three hundred feel from
.v cliff into the Cumberland river. Thus
equipped the colonel was prepared togivo
a spice to Ins writings which few men
could imitate , Ho will bo sincerely
mourned by the goneratioa which must
re-road his savage tales or put up with
the mild antidotes which Howells and
James are dosing it with.
"Sweat is raven go tisnecially to
vomon , " said the gifted , but naughty ,
Ixird Byron , Surely ho was in bad humor
when ho wrote such words. But there
are complaints that only women stiller ,
that are carrying numbers of thorn down
to early graves. There is hope for tlioso
who sillier , no matter how sorely , or so.
