A Pertinent Clause.
A clause relating to llio federal Judici
ary wliich has nn important bearing upon
parU not half way across the continent
Iroin Omaha was stricken out of a special
bill In the Donate on Friday. The llttlo
joker of a sentence read ? as follows :
That no person related to nny justice or
judRO of any court o the United Stntcs by
nfllulty or consanguinity , within the duruo
of lirst coutln , shall be appointed by such
court or judge , or employed by such court or
Jud ; o In any olllco or duty In nny coiut of
which such justice or jtulRO limy bea member.
The passage of supli a prohibition
would play puck with the perquis
ites of several families in the United
States which hold high and mighty and
perpetual possession of federal court
houses in this land of freedom. It would
knock out of handsome jobs n , number
of clfrks of courts , masters In chancery ,
and special commissioners. It would
close the doors upon moro than ono
"lucrative practice , " which is lucrative
largely because clients think they know
on which side their bread is buttered.
"Mr. President , " said Senator Coki- ,
on the Uilli of Juno when
tliis subject was under debate ,
" 1 favor tlio amendment which
prohibits ledoral judges from filling the
olllces of their courts with their relations.
Sonio portions of the country have suf-
fercd sulliciontly from this cause and it
ought to stop. The administration of
justice in some of the courts lias boon
hampered too long already by thia evil
and il should come to an eud. Tlio foun
tains of justice should bo pure and no
suspicion allowed to exist that family ties
or family inllucnco interferes with judi
cial administration. "
Mr. Coke was quito right. Possibly ho
spolco from Texan experience. The re
mainder of the senate had evidently also
had uxporienco , for on that date the
clause was agreed to without dissent. Il
was ( itrickon out of the bill on Friday to

Tlmosllnvo
One of our exchanges notes that Mr.
Jay Gould's neighbors up at Irvingfon
report a good deal of pomp and magnifi
cent circumstance in the coming and
going of the stock market magnate on
his yaoht Atiilanla. When his little
launch puts him aboard .of his big .yacht
in the morning ready for his trip to the
city , he puts his foot on her deck to the
tune of 11 cannon's valley and an unfurling
of Hags , and at night when she comes to
her anchorage oil' his summer mansion
there is more cannonading and a lively ,
not to say regal , dipping of colors.
Things have changed somewhat in the
last few years. There was a time when
Jay Gould took his boat trips on the
river with as little display as possible.
On the day when tlio Erie magnate
scudded down West street with the rail
road bonds under his arm , several
millions of the stockholders' cash in his
pockets and n po.sao of police nt his heels ,
there was no gun fired on the ferry boat
as it backet ! rapidly Into the Hudson out
of routih of the ojlieors of the law. No
\vGmurtttrjeafrou\th6 "WU-hsw-
kcn" as it brought supplies and" daily
papers to Gould , Fisk & Co. in
their lonely camp on the Hobokcn
heights where the railway robber and his
pals were hiding from Now York justice.
There " of colors' '
was no "regal dipping
on that memorable occasion when tlio
sheriff of Now York county and six depu
ties ilow to and fro across the Hudson
vainly trying to servo Judge Barnard's
injunction on the crafty Gould through
the windows of the Erie ferryboat. Dis
play and publicity wore the last things
Jay Gould was gunning after in those
halcyon days of the Eric plunder , when
the historic printing press had done Its
work and. Commodore Vanderbilt gazed
ruefully on the if 10,000,000 of bogus stock
which ho iiad purchased in the open mar

The genuine sanction lu the formation
of tlui mny lirltlKh cabinet Is the selec
tion of Lord Randolph Churchill as cmu !
cellar of the exchequer. This olllco makes
Lord Randolph the leader of the tory
party in the house of commons and will
pit hlui us the partjr spokesman against
Mr. Gladstone on the opposition bench.
The doceiulant of John Churchill , the
.Marlbornugh of Hlenlieim , lias many of
the trulls of lib famous ancestor. lie Is
bold to audacity , serenely confident in IIH !
own resources , a successful orator and a
party leader who has rlson to prominence
by shouldering himself to the
ronl of many better and abler
publiu men. As a politician he is known
to possess a duxterity in turning somcr-
suulU from ono position to another and
nlways landing on his foot. As a states-
mau he la generally dubbed deficient In
( equipment and incapable of sustained
aud deep study of Important public ques
tions. But his ability KB nn orator , hia
success In adapting his policy to ch\nges !
of public opinion and his brilliant audac
ity in debate make him to-day the most
popular lender In his party and have
pushed him to tlio loading government
position In the house of commons , It
will now bo In Churchill's grasp to outline -
line an Irish policy which will cut the
ground from under the iect of M.t.
Gladstone and secure the Mtpporl of nt
least the llnrtlngton-Chamborlaln wing
of the liberal party. There are good rea
sons for believing that this is the pro
gramme which the do.xlcrous political ac
robat has already mapped out. Lord
Randolph will shortly bo given n chance
to duplicate Disraeli's famous feat on the
reform bill. Rumors nro Hying thick
and fast In London that a homo rule bill
drawn tip by Churchill has already been
submitted to Chamberlain and gamed
his approval , and that overtures have
been made to llio Irish parly with a view
to securing their support. It remains to
be seen whether the nationalists will bite
at the tempting bail or stand firmly for
home rule onllio basts of the plan pro
posed by Mr. Gladstone.
Mexico's Unronulillctxn System ,
The popular Impression regarding the
political system of Mexico is that it is
purely republican , and the interest felt in
this country respecting the neighboring
nation , ordinarily spoken of as the "sister
republic , " Is largely duo to tills Impres
sion. It is u fact , however , that while tlio
form of republicanism is observed in the
creation of the government , much of the
machinery and methods of the govern
mental system are as far removed from
pure republican conditions as they could
well be aud retain a semblance of re-
puulicnnism. For example , In the elec
tion of members of congress the people
do not choose their representatives , and
no member of congress can be said to
have a personal constituency , or to bo in
any measure responsible to a particular
locality. The popular voting is indirect ,
the people electing electors who choose
the so-called representatives of the
people to suit themselves. As a rule the
persons thus chosen nro not mentioned at
the time of voting , so that tlio people
have no opportunity to pass upon their
character or qualifications , and in
the recent choice of congress
men it is undoubtedly a fact
that men wore chosen by the electoral
boards for districts whore they were little
known or not known at all , Such a sys
tem as this preserves only a shadow of re
publicanism , recognizing the right of llio
people to a voice in tlio choice of their
representatives , but really depriving them
of the most valuable privileges and ad-
vintages which should accompany that
right as a personal knowledge of candi
dates , the ascertainment of their views
on publiu questions , and the opportunity
to impress upon thorn the sentiments and
desires oi tlio people.
There Is no public political discussion ,
for the reason that while not absolutely
inhibited it Is accompanied by so much
risk that it is an invitation to martyrdom to
attempt it. Attack upon the government
in the form of adverse criticism subjects
the offender to llio dancer of arrest as a
disturber of the public peace , und the
right of the government (9 protect Itself
in this way against the expression of hos
tile public opinion ia as rigidly enforced
as is the suppression of popular dis
cussion of the afl'nirs of government in
Russia. Indeed , in no country is there
less freedom in this direction than in
Mexico. Under the existing government
laws impairing the freedom of the press ,
which had long been obsolete , have been
revived , and the right of public assembly
has been practically denied. It is stated
that within tlio past voar no less than
forty-four editors and students have been
imprisoned in llio cily of Mexico alone ,
charged with no other ofl'euso than that
of publicly dissenting trom the policy of
tlio administration. A strict censorship
is maintained over the press , which Is not
confined to the editorial comments , but
extends to the news also. In short , the
government employs every practicable
means to smother popular sentiment re
specting its course and policy , and en
forces these means with a degree of op
pression ynd tyranny elsewhere unknown
outside the dominions of the e/.ar.
The issue created by the recent out
rages upcn American citizens has di
rected attention to the uurepublican char
acter of the laws under which tiieso oul-
rages are sought to bo Justified
laws which , in the language of Secretary
Bayard , "afl'cct the underlying principles
of security to personal liberty nnct free
dom of speech , or expression , wliich are
among the main objects sought to bo se
cured by our framework of government. "
It Is discovered that wo are living next
door to a people , with whom wo are de
sirous of maintaining terms of neigh
borly friendship , whoso laws ami whoso
methods of jurisprudence not only con
travene the most vital principles of a re
publican system of government , but in
volve assumptions and pretensions which
this government cannot tolerate without
abandoning all regard for justice and tlio
safety of ils citizens , In view of nil tills
it seems to bo entirely pertinent to ask ,
Is Mexico really a republic ?
Tlio Fight In New VorU.
The political campaign in Now York
this full , which i beginning to develop
points of interest , is likely to bo watched
with ngood deal of concern by both par
ties , The democrats will make n hard
struggle to obtain control of the next leg
islature , in ordur to elect a successor to
Senator Warner Miller , and tlio political
complexion of the next house is the main
question of the contest. Tlio present
senate holds over with u republican ma
jority of eight , and the democrats to secure -
cure a majority in joint ballot must in
crease their present representation of
fifty in the house to sixty-nino. This Is a
most dilllcult task , which the republicans
bellovo cannot bo accomplished , and this
faith has brought forth nearly u score of
republican candidates for Miller's scut ,
with some dark horses in the baou
ground. Apart from the natural demo
cratic desire to obtain control of the nu-
tlonnl senate during the last two years of
Mr , Cleveland's administration , it would
bo especially interesting to the party to
elect a senator from the president's own
state , and undoubtedly the presi
dent would greatly relish such a
result in event of the choice falling
to Governor Hill , which it easily would
do if ho desired It. With Hill in the sen
ate the chances of Mr , Cleveland for 1833
would bo very considerably improved ,
but there Is reason to suspect that the
governor understands so w * > ll what the
possibilities of the future are for him
that ho will not consent * to bo taken tc
that cemetery of prfstd'cntlal aspirants ,
the United States senate , There appear ;
lo bo little doubt that in the probable
event of the republicans retaining coif
trol of the legislature Mr. Miller will nol
bo continued in the semite , although he
is In the Held for reelection and will do
his very best to got therq. Ilia record ns
a senator , however , has not boon partru ! <
larlv creditable to himself or to the state ,
and It is to the credit of the rcjniblict'iii
of New York that llioy take a proper
pride in the charnctur of' their senatorial
representatives , at least to the extent ol
desiring that they shall compare favora
bly in intelligence and atlcast the minor
qualities of statesmanship with the repre
sentatives of ether states. Mr. Miller hns
shown that ho Is not the man to meet this
requirement , ana ns the republicans of
Now York have heller matorlal at com
mand , his fate Is undoubtedly settled.
Congress nml tlio CittiliiR Slnttor ,
Tim house committee on foreign affairs ,
at a called meeting on Tticsday.conaldereti
tlio issue Hint has been raised between the
governments of Mexico anil the United
States growing oul of tlio arrest by the
authorities of Chihuahua , Mexico , and
the Imprisonment at Paso del Norte , of
A. K. Culling , an American cllizon. Tlio
character of this case is familiar to the
public. Culling published In his paper ,
printed at El Paso , Texas , a statement
regarding n citizen of Mexico , and on
going to Paso del Norte , where ho resales ,
Cutting was arrested and thrown into
prison. Demands of llic American
minister and consul for his release , made
by authority of the president , were dis
regarded , aud lliu Me\lcan government
held that ho is amenable to the laws of
that country for the ofl'en o committed
on American soil. This assumption was
peremptorily refected by the state department -
partment and assurances were given
by the Mexican minister that Cut
ting would be speedily released. The
government of Mexico , however , appears
not to have sustained the assurance of its
minister , aud Cutting is still in prison.
At the meeting of the foreign affairs com
mittee resolutions were introduced uy
Representative Crain , of Texas , selling
forlh llio faels in the case , approving the
action of tiio president in demanding the
release of Culling , and requeuing him lo
renew llio demand. These resolutions
wore adopled by llic committee unani
mously.
This signilicant action , which will
bo approved by the people of Iho en
tire country , may Uo aeeeplcd by Iho
Mexican government as assurance that
the government of the United Stales will
tolerate no further 'trifling in this mat
ter , and tlmt unlusBlhn proper demands
of tills govenuncntnrb fuiIy and promptly
complied with Mcxfco must ( prepare to
take the consequences. , We have no
doubt that this action will produce the
desired result.
Ix his messiigo approving the oleo
margarine bill , the president presents
some very cogent reason1 ! } for his action
and in support of ( ho moasuro. Tlio
manufacturers of fjleopiargnrino will
hardly venture , for example , to deny the
force of the followinjiviow : "If the ex
istence 6f "tho coinmodllyUaxed and the
profits of 'its ' manufacture anil sale 'de
pend upon disposing of it to Iho people
for something else which it deceitfully
imitates , the entire enterprise is a fraud
and not. an industry ; and if it cannot
endure the exhibition of its real charac
ter , which will bo effected by the inspec
tion , supervision and stamping whic h the
bill directs , the sooner it is destroyed the
better in the interest of fail dealing. "
Nor will there bo any question among the
honest producers of this commodity re
specting the following just and wise con
clusions : "Nor should there bo opposi
tion to Iho incidental effect of this legis
lation on the part of those who profess to
be engaged honestly nnd fairly in the
manufacture and sale of a wholesome
and valuable article of food , which , by its
provisions , may bo subject to taxation.
As long as this business is carried on
under cover and by false pretenses , sucii
men have bad companions in those whoso
manufactures , however vile and harm
ful , take their place without challenge
with tiic bettor part in a common crusade
of deccitagainst the public. But if this
occupation and its methods are forced
into light , and all thcso manufactures
must thus either stand upon their merits
or fall , the good and bad must soon part
company und the fitlest only will sur
vive. " In this matter the president has
acted in the interest of the people , and
ho has given such convincing reasons
for his action as ought to satisfy every
fair-minded roan.
LAST spring , when the board of educa
tion organized by electing the throe
democrats in the board , out of tiio nine
members , to the omccs of president , vice
president and secretary , the event was
hailed aa a great victory for non parti
sanship in the public schools. But when
the six republicans turned in and voted
for republican janitors there comes a cry
of "rank partisanship" from the demo
cratic side of the houso. Il seems to us

A friend of Senator Stanford , the Califor
nia forty-milllonahe , says tlio rich man stays
In the senate because It furnishes him an ex
cuse for getting away from the perplexities
of business that he cannot avoid when nt
home. Judging from what has been accom
plished by congress wo should say bolh
houses nro full of men who stay In Washing-
Ion merely to get away from the perplexities
of business.
AnoUior Jud o Needed ,

This ThlidJudicial district needs another
Tiilge , and nCMS him l > ad. Judges Novljlp
and Wakeley are holding court incosSatilly
almost , but the population of this district Is
Increasing so rapidly that court business
has become entirely too cumbersome for
them to handle. There Is enough business
In Omaha alone to demand the attention of
two Judges. The outside counties will furn-
Jph business for two more Judges. The next
legislature should altond to this inatler , and
give this district the needed relief.

It Is nature thus appcallncr to the sympathy

The Execution of John Brown.
J , T. L. Preston , in August Bivouacs
Shortly before 11 o'clock the prisoner
was taken from jail and Iho funeral cor
tege was put in motion. First came three
companies , then the criminal's wagon
drawn bv two large wtilte horses. John
Brown was scaled on his coffin , accom
panied by the sheriff and two other pur-
sons. The wagon drove to the foot of
the gallows , and Brown descended with
alacrity aud without assistance and as
cended the stops to the platform. Ills
demeanor was intrepid , without being
braggart , Ho made no speech ; whether
ho decided to make one or not I do not
know ; even if ho had doslred it , it would
not have boon permitted. Any speech
of his must of necessity have been un
lawful , as being dlicetcd ngnlnst the
pence and dignity of the commonwealth ,
and us biich could not bo allowed ny those
who wore then oncngcd in the moat
solemn und extroinu vindication of law.
"John Brown's mnnnor gave no evi
dence of timidity , bul his countenance
was not free from concern , and lUeniuod
to mo to have n llttlo east of wlldnobs.
Ho blood upon the scaffold but a short
tlmo , giving brief adieus to thosu about
him , when ho was properly pinioned , the
white aup drawn over Ills tuco , the noos ?
adjusted and attached to the hook above ,
and he was movml , blindfold , n few stops
forward. It was curious to note how tlio
instincts of nature operated lo make him
careful in putting out his feet , an if afraid
lie would walk oll'tlm hcaffold , The man
who stood nnblenohod on the brink of
eternity. Jwas afraid of fulling a few
foot to the ground !
"Everything was now in readiness.
The sheriff asked the prisoner if ho should
give him a private signal before the fa
tal moment. Ho replied , in a voice that
sounded to mo unnaturally natural so
composed wns its tone , nnd so distinct its
articulation that it did not matter to
him. if only they would not keep him
too long waiting. ' llo was kept waiting ,
however ; the troops that hud formed his
escort had to bn put in their position , and
while this was going on ho slood for some
ton or lifteeu minutes , blindfolded , the
rope round his ucck , and hi * foct on the
treacherous platform , oxpuollng instantly
the fatal act , but ho stood for thm com
paratively lonir time upright ns n soldier
in position , and motionless , I was oloso
.o.liiiu aud watched him uuiTowly.tosooif
[ could detect nny signs of shirking 01
tcmbllng In his person , but ( hero wm
nonp. Once 1 thought 1 saw his knee <
tremble , but it wns only the wint
blowing his loose trousers. Ills tirmnes' '
w.u subjected to still finther trinl hi
hearing Colonel Smith announce to tin
sheriff , 'Wo arc all ready , Mr. Campbell.
I'ho sheriff did not hear or did not com
prchend , nnd in a louder tone the same
announcement was made. But the eul
prit sllll slood steady , until the sheriff do
secnding the night of stops , with n well
directed blow of n sharp imtchel , severci
the rope tlmt hold tip the trap-door
which instantly sank shocr beneath him
lie fell about three feoti nml the man ol
strong and bloody hand , of liert-o pas

'There wns profouudcsl stillness dur

growing feebler and feeuler at each abor
tive attempt to breathe. Ills knees were
aoarotily bent , his arms wore drawn tin
lo it right nnglo nt the elbow , with the
hands clenched ; but there was no writh
ing of tlio body , no violent heaving ol
the chest. At ouch feebler effort nt res
piration his uruis sank lower nntl his leg ?
hung moro relaxed , until nt last , straight
aud lank , he dangled , swayed slightly tc

INTERESTING CJOURT MARTIAL.
Trlnl or Mnitcnant Meninln for
Conduct. Unbecoming an Ofllccr
nnd n Gniitluniiiu.
A Cheyenne special pays : The court
martial proceedings now in progress in
tills city for the trial of Lieutenant John
F. iMcBlain , of the Ninth United States
continued and widespread
cavalry , are exciting
spread interest. Tliu accused Is John F.
McBlain , second Hcutcntuil of the Ninth
cavalry. The charges against AluBhtin
are tlmt ho has been guilty of conduct
unbecoming an olliccr and a gentleman ,
in that he fraudulently obtained a di
voreo from his wife by representing that
ho was a citizen ot California when ho
had no legal residence there ; that he
failed to send to his wife the proper legal
uotico of the proceedings in the divorce
suit , and that ho concealed from the
court certain facts in regard to his rela
tions with his wife which , if known
would have prevented his having Iho di
vorce granted.
The case has now been on trial foi-
three days and the facts no far developed
tend to establish in the minds of llioso
who Imvo watched the proceedings that
McBlaln has been unjustly probcctitcil i
Iho imtlterand that something beyond
tlio merits of tlio case lias necti Iho
moving cause of the charges boiug
brought against him. It is shown that ho
loft his homo in Philadelphia nhurtly
nflor his marriage , in 1878 , for San Fran
cisco , intending to locate there and send
for his wife lo join him ; that failing to
find employment there ho joined the reg
ular army as n privnlo nml Hint having
constant altercations and differences with
his wife culminating finally in a separa
tion , ho instituted proceedings in July ,
1881. to obtain a divorce. The records of
Iho California court which granted the
divorce in October , 18&1 , show tlmt the
plaintiff performed all of the lawful re
quirements on his parl In llio proceedings ,
nnd that proper notice of the inslilulmn
of Iho proceedings was sent to Mrs.
McBlain in the usual nnd regular man-
nor. * It Is also shown that In 1885 , Iilrs.
McBlnin and her attorney. William D ?
Kelley , Jr. , of Philadelphia , wn of Con-
gressmin KolfoyTGnt to California aud
attempted to reopen the case , alleging
that biio had never received any nolilica-
lion ot the proccedingp. The court heard
their motion and refused to reopen the
case. This fact , which has not been made
public by theeastern , press in their com
ments on tho'matter may account for tlio
great interest Congressman Kelly has
taken in the cnso.
Youug Mr. Kelly , defeated in his attempt -
tempt to reopen the divorce case before
Iho California courts , sought his father's
influence lo aid him in obtaining satis
faction in another direction , nnd last
spring when Mr. McBlain was promoted
to a first lieutenancy the older Kelley ap
peared before the senate comniitlco on
military affairs and prevented his con-
lirmalion , charging that McBlain's al
leged reasons for obtaining the divorce
from his wife wore tlmt his altered rank
in life , having been promoted from the
ranks to a lieutenancy , so changed their
social relations that who was no longer
equal.
After the refusal of the senate com
mittee lo recommend his confirmation to
the first lieutenancy , McBlam asked for
a trial before a court martial , and the
prosunt board is convened at his request.
5JAs the case is at present progressing ,
whether McBlain Is acquitted or not , it
will become very evident to those who
ire obstirvlng the testimony that what
ever motive MoBlaln hnd for obtaining a
livorco from his wife , tlmt assigned by
Mr. Kelley does not seem to have been
ho correct ono , nnd that if the prosccti-
.ion does nol make out a stronger case
tlmn they have done so far that tlio
: hnnccs tor the compluto vindication of
UcBlnin are favorable.
