'Tun race- for tlio governorship is at
tracting fully as much attention as any
of tlio raced booked for fair week. New
entries arc almost daily reported with iv
half score of dark homes beinij croomed

THE First district is peed for a safe
republican majority with an honest re
publican candidate. If ChureU Howe
succeeds in buying tlio nomination it will
bo good for an oven safer democratic
majority.V"o stake our reputation for
prophecy on the outcome.
THI : country is not to be congratulated
upon the fact that Treasurer Jordan has
acquiesced in the present policy of thn
treasury regarding the surplus. Tlio liopo
was that thl ollicions person would em
phasize his devotion to his former views
by stopping out of his position.
SWINDLING soldiers and bilking church
societies ought notto provo recommenda
tions for grand army honors. The mon-
daeious carpenter from Mondota , was
drummed out of the G. AU. . for em
bezzlement. Nebraska veterans should
have no place for such a man in their
CA.BLEOKAMS from England confirm

-Alexander of Bulgaria was the price paid

Turkish alliance. French sympathy with
Ktisaia is not likely to bo so outspoken in
the nnar future as it lias been in the past ,
while hatred for Bismarck will bo inten
sified , as tlio result of this now outwitting
of French diplomatists by the shrow'd
mid crafty Iron Prince.
THE llttlo outbreak reported to have
developed in one of the Mexican states'
and which is unduly dignified in calling
it ti revolution , will probably have a very
brief existence. It is very likely nothing
inoro serious than a scheme to plunder ,
and when the robbers have secured all
the booty within reach they will disap
pear. The uresent government of Mexico
ice might not be sustained by a popular
vote , but it is very well fortified against
IT is still uncertain whether Secretary
Manning will bealilutorosnmo his duties
at Washington , and the acting secretary
is authority for the statement that if ho
does conclude to return ho will not do so
until some time in October. . Tlio state of
his health continues precarious , and tlio
intervals of apparent improvement are
brief. It is evident that Mr. Manning's
physical condition is so reduced that a
resumption of the arduous labors of the
treasury department might pro vo speedily

Senator Van Wyok's chances are not so
bright as they wore before Ins appeal to
tlio people. This is too bad. If the senator -
ator hadn't made the awful blunder of
appealing from tin * politicians to the
public ho might Imvo scoured sixteen in
stead of tlio thirteen out of sixteen legis
lative candidates which republican con
ventions liavo already placed in nomina
tion pledged for Van Wyck. Still , as a
starter , thirteen is not a bad layout for
the old man.
AIWCKS from New York are full of
biifiinoss cheer. The trade center is full
of activity. The streets in the wholesale
districts are crowded with trucks. Mer
chants report the'How of orders as un
precedented for tlio season. This means
that the country at largo is buying freely
for the fall and winter trade. It tndi >
catcs that the check given to overproduc
tion lias reduced stock bnlow the limits
of actual requirements mid that thn rook
bottom of depression has been touched.
There is every reason to believe that wo
are on the ovc of another season of com
mercial prosperity ami industrial ad-
vanco. Mills and factories are running
full time , luirnaccs and forges are
overrun with oolera , Transportation
companies report a greatly increased
trafilo. Tlioru has bcnii a contraction in

Long before the Knights of Labor began
gan to pour into congress that remark
able scries of petitions praying for legis

squarely on what afterwards proved to bo
the popular side of the great and livhu

son iill'oetivo legislative ledrcss for tin
people against thu oppressions and oxtor

before the Knights of Laoor had urgci
the repeal of the preemption law , Gen
Van Wyck was found exposing the
wholesale swindling of gren
land syndicates and cattle companies , am
insisting that the honest settlers ot the
west had no sympathy with the thieves
and scoundrels who wcro despoiling Iht

under cover of the national bounty. Ovct
four years ago he began his light for the
forfeiture of the unearned land grants
and insisted that the government lam
should be reserved for actual settlers am

consideration in tlio petitions of Ameri

discussed and urged from the standpoint
of American labor by Senator Van

Senator Van Wyck has kept close to
the heart of the people during his entire
political career. His record lias been an
open one , made in public , subject to in
spection. His course has invited criti
cism , but it has been criticism from
sources where praise would have been
blame. Jt is a matter of congratulation
that the central committee of the largest
labor organixation in the country in
dorses the senator from Nebraska as a
fearless , honest anil consistent friend of
the people in his advocacy of measure
of vital interest to the state and to the
welfare of the producers of the nation.
The City Hall Contract.
Mayor Boyd is trying to defeat the city
hall project with a pocket veto of the
contract for the construction of the base
ment. He declines to anprovo the con
tract , but at the same time prefers not to
inform the council why bo withholds his
signature. Instead of doing tbis , begets
Mr. Goodman to play catspaw with a resolution
elution to reconsider the vote by which
the council has let the contract.
Wo do not comprehend why Mr. Goo'd-
man should lend himself to such a small
piece of business. Mr. Goodman knows ,
as everybody knows , that the mayor's
action in this matter is purely
au exhibition of personal spite
and political spleen. Ho knows
enough to know that the many delays
and ellbrts to prevent the erection of tlio
the city hall basement this year have
sprung from a quarrel of the mayor with
the council over Tom dimming * . The
mayor is evidently willing to punish the
the cily of Omaha and retard its growth
just to show his power and punish his
political opponents including the UEE ,
which happens to own some real estate
on uuper Farnam. Wo can assure Mr.
15oyd and bis Goodman Friday tiiat the
UEB will survive their vengeance. We are
comfortably and securely fixed for at
least live years on lowerFarnaiu and can
afford to lot the grass grow on upper
Farnam without going into bankruptcy.
The only reasons , wo are told , which
Mr. Goodman advanced lor putting oil
the erection of the city hall base
ment this year are , that the
bid is too high , and further
that there is no money in the treasury ,
available for the purpose. Now we have
no means of knowing whether the bid is
high or low , except as opinions have
been expressed by reliable builders who
did not bid because they have their hands
full Those parties estimated tlio subbasement -
basement at ? ' . ' 5,000 , while the contract is
a fraction over $22.000. But if the bid is
actually $10,000 higher than it ought to
bo whoso fault Is it that this bid was ac
cepted and unproved ? What is the use
of ! i board of public works if not to con
sider the reasonableness of bids and report
adversely on all that are extravagant ?
Mr. House , the chairman of the board , is
fully competent to make the estimates
and his associate , Mr. Soliall , is an ex
port in rock work and could hardly bo
imposed on by an over-reaching con
tractor. The board of public works
and the council both accepted the bid
and entered into the contract. The
mayor has a right to refuse bis approval ,
but personal spite was hardly contem
plated by the makers of the ohurtor as n
good reason for obstructing public
As to thn plot : that there is no money
in the treasury , Mr. Goodman knows
better. Ho knows that the board ot
education has sot aside first $5,003 and
then $20,000 , moro for its share of thn cost
of building the city hall , and to expedite
the work has voted to place it at the dis
posal of the council at once , Tlio plea
that additional legislation will bo re
quired to complete the building is no
excuse whatever for putting off a part
which can bo built tills year without
any legislation. When the citizens ot
Omaha last November by an overwhelm
ing vote made the location , approved
the plans and authorised the school
board to contribute § 35,000 towards thu
building they did it for the express pur
pose of having work begun at once.
Mayor JJoyd and the council uro only
durvunts of the people. Their duly Is to
carry out the will of the people and not
to act as obstructionists.
The effect of annulling the contract for
[ ho city ball basement will hit muou moro
serioim to the welfare of Omaha than it
could possibly bo to Mr. Ucchel , whom
Boyd BO cordially hates , or thn Hun ,
which is not his organ , The delay of the
citY hall building means delay in import-
ant and solid Improvements on upper
I'nrnnin which cannot bo less than
half a- million dollars' during the
coming year. Hy postponing action until
next spring , the mayor will prevent any
contract for the city hall bciing let before
thn first of next July. All that the city
will get in Iho year 1887 will bo the base
ment , which could and should ho finished
this year. No property owner who con
templates creeling a large block on ut > per
Farnam will venture to do anything
until the city has let its contract. Plans
which require months of time will not bo
begun until next year's fall , which practi
cally means the winter of ' 87-89. So then
the little personal spite of Mr. Boyd is sure
to retard the growth of Omaha at a time
when her peculiar relations to the rail
road system make it a vital necessity that
she. should crowd every sail ami catch
every favoring breeze to maintain her
But suppose that the contract is $10,000
too high , which we do not believe , what
will the city gain by dolay. Under the
contract witli the county , the city can
only occupy the court house twenty
months longer. It will take- fully that
lime to complete the cily hall quarters ,
if work is begun this j-car. The so-called
city hall building now occupied by tlio
council is a disgrace to Omaha when any
stranger visits the council chamber. Tlio
rents alone which the city will have to
pay for the additional year will exceed
? 10,000. Kvcn with that outlay , iU offices
will not bo in a fireproof building. Be
sides this , the additional taxes for one
year on the blocks projected on upper
Farnam would moro than onset any pos
sible excess on the basement. So much
for the economy of dolay. If Mayor
Boyd has any better excuses for withhold
ing his signature to to the contract than
has been offered by Mr. Goodman , the
public will bo interested In knowing
Tlio Knlyliis' Convention.
The attention given to the forthcoming
national convention of tlio Knights of
Labor is the best evidence of tliu public
interest foltin the movements and inten
tions of that organization. The results
of the convention are expected to have
an important inlluence on the future of
the Kiiiglils , and perhaps upon labor
combinations generally. A goood deal
has been developed In the working of the
order since the last convention which
shows the necessity for radical changes
in its governmental system , and it is un
derstood that there will be an effort to
effect these to an extent that will amount
practically to reorganization. As at pres
ent constituted there is a centralization
of power not conducive to harmony , as
well as of duties that tire oppressive , and
prevent that prompt and expeditious ac
tion which is generally necessary in con
nection with an organization of tins kind.
It will bu n part of the duty of the next
convention to deline tlio relations of the
Knights to other labor organizations.
Tlio absence of any definitive regulation
or principle regarding this important
matter has given opportunity for con-
llicts and complications of a troublesome
character , as in the case particu
larly of the contention between a
division of tlio Knights in New York and
the cigarmaker'.s union , resulting after
a long and somewhat bitter light in tlio
victory of the latter. Such conHicls as
this of course engender bad blood , and
the eiluct is necessarily harmful to the
cause which those , who engage in them
represent. Not the least important mat
ter which the convention will be expected
to determine is ° the attitude which tliu
order shall take , in whole or in part ,
toward politics. The course of brandies
of the organization in proposing or sup
porting movements for independent po
litical action , seems to make an impera
tive demand upon the representatives of
the whole body in convention for an ex
pression that will bu general in its scene
that will either permit unrestricted po
litical action in the name of the organiza
tion , or prohibit all suclr action. H is
probable there will bo developed a con
siderable element favorable to giving the
organization a political character , and a
sharp struggle over this question is more
than likely. It is evident that in thu con
sideration of thcso and oilier issues which
are now in controversy , ana which are a
menace to tlio harmony and perpetuity
of the Knights , tlio highest wisdom and
discretion of the leaders will bo fully
tested , and by the result it will not bo
dillicult to determine whether the organi
zation is to go on increasing in strength ,
or by gradual or rapid disintegration f.Ul
to pieces.
A I'rollllcH.s Controvert ) .
Tlio public controversy that lias been
opened between Mr. Oburly , the present
chairman of the civil service commission ,
and Mr. Dormati It. Katon , the ex-chair
man , cannot hoof any advantage to these
gentleman or to the eauso which they
profess to have so much at heart. In so
far us the discussion is of a purely per
sonal nature , it Is not probable that
cither party to it will sillier in the estima
tion of his friends , Wo believe both to
bo eminently rosDoctable and tiuslwor
thy citizens. Thu private and public
character of Mr. Katon , with respect to
integrity of purpose , so far as wo are
aware , Is above reproach. Ho is a man
of some ability , though ho has shown it
cliielly in the direction of his hobby ,
civil service reform , Mr. Oborly has
been a moderately successful journalist ,
and has some considerable ability as a
loliticlan. ) Ho appears to have espoused
the cause of civil service reform with ex
traordinary zeal , and is apparently win
ning golden opinions from its more devoted -
voted adherents. Mr , Oberly wields a
ready and virile pen , and in encounter
ing him Mr. Katon will find that ho has
use for all his literary and argtimonta-
.ivo rescoures ,
So far as the controversy may disclose
the operations of civil service reform
: hus far , it will not bo wholly without in
terest for the public , but It Is very doubt-
'til whether the showing will bo greatly
to the advantage of the reform in public
estimation. The motive of Mr. Katon
xpponr.s to bo to defend the republican
commissioners from partisan assaults ,
and this may perhaps bu considered par
donable in view of the fact that ho was
n a very largo measure responsible f or
ho action of the commission ol which ho
vas the head. Those who have any
: nowledgo of the inside working of that
> ody are aware that it was not entirely
larmonlous , ami whether or not this
vas the fault of Mr. Katon , ho had the
lomoer.nlio member with him and his
ilans prevailed. Hut the b.isis of parti-
an assault is the alleged inoliinicnoy of
Itu commission in failing to have the re-
quirdnicitts ot tlio law fully complied
with , In nugK.vtliij ? .linvostijjations when
attention was calLm to the violations , as
for'example in tb ? rase of Pension Com
missioner-Black , anjl in otherwise com
ing short of the full hud faithful performance /
anco of its duty. 'As yet there have been
little moro than unsupported nl
legations , but the proof , if there bo any ,
may be looked for in due lime. It is nol
unlikely that the democratic commis
sioner will be able ty make out a tolerable
case. It is not doubled that the original
commission mndomistake3. But it ought
to bo charitably remembered that it had
to plan and organize a system , confronted
by many dillloullies , so that errors aud
omissions on its part that would bo par
donable , in the case of its successor would
be entirely inexcusable. We tire unable to
see , however , what profitable end nan bo
secured by a partisan quarrel over the
matter. If there is any real merit in civil
service reform the republicans will have
the credit of having instituted it , while
if the democrats succeed in developing
whatever virtues it may possess , Iho
credit therefor will bu given to them.
