Nothing rr tartls business moro than unscasomibl weather. A few frosts nowadays ar worth many thousands of dollars I 'Omaha business men. TUB fuel that earthquake shock occurred at Charleston on Tuesday wil bo reassuring to HigjniiH. His nrcUk tion of a general shaking up was fo Wednesday , but in a matter of this ser a day either way is not material. COMIT.AINTS about the postoflico ar 'not confined to Omaha by any means There is hardly n big postoH'ico in th Y country that is not complained of 01 , account of the delay in distributing am dolivurinu the mails. It all goes t show that the working force of the posl oflioe Khould not in any way bo disturba by change of administration. Anotho cause of the irregularity in mail mutter is that tlio force is not increased sun ciciitly from time to time to keep u with the increasoof postal business. Tli postal department needs considerabl g up. THE temper of tlio republicans of N < brnska has been shown in the count conventions , most of which haye dou their work and nominated their candl datos. The wave of anti'inonopoly whic four years ago rolled over the state hn spent its force. The republicans of Ni urasku have been brought to see that th success ot their party is bound.up in il Viiliui us a mouthpiccu of the honest set tlmonlH of honest roiiubllcans. In largo majority of the conventions hoi btrong anti-monopoly planks wore li Bcrtcd in the platforms and candidate placed in nomination who arc pledge to carry the platform utterances hit e fleet. Tin : attention of the HIK : has bee been called , through numerous con plaints , to the lack of accommodation in the passenger waiting rooms of tli Union I'aclfio depot. The fttw seats fu ntshed arc scarcely sutllciunt to seat fourth of the tired travelers who thron thu station. Many women and men in forced to stand sometimes for houi when trains uro delayed , or to walk t mul fro on the platform when the ope nlr seems preferable to the stilling ai inospltcro of the crowded waiting room Travel is especially heavy just now au the evil is doubtless exaggerated on th : account , but oven in thu ordinary run ( travel thu seats furnished arc sadly ine ticlont. Thu company owes it to Us p ; irons to romndy the evil so far as it ca bo remedied in the cramped space i ita disposal. When the now depot built. Komutimo in the near future , thei will up doubt bo few grounds for sue complaints. Meanwhile , the seating ai comniodatious could easily bo doubled. Snoxv Them Unclor. Tlio political hacks and hired attorney of corpornto monopoly nro once mori rallying their forces to capture tlio ncx legislature. In every county in the slat tapped by the Burlington and Missom Pacific systems , the agcn's of thosn cor poratlons have been hard at work fo weeks la.ying wires lo control primaries conquer conventions , and dictate tin choice of can iidatcs. With n Miameles disregard of political dcee.ney to whlcl the voters of this state have long sine become accustomed , they have throwi their section gangs and employes fron primary to primary , and by i liberal use of passes , favor ? and rebates have succeeded in corrupting many men of whom their neighbors Inn a right to expect beltet things. Lik Jay ( iould in his ICrio light the corpon lions of Nebraska are republicans in re publican districts , democrats in demri eratlu di.strlets , but monopoly men first last mul all tlio time. The success or defeat feat of cither tmhtic.il party is nothing ti them t-o long as party defeat is their owi victory. Their solo aim and object is ti secure a majority nf their tools and hire lings in the law-making body snuicicnl ly large to block all legislations designui to lelieve producers from the wrong from which they nro sulloriug Utterly regardless of thn wish o the people of this state am mindful only of their own interests , tli railroad managers are leaving no stoiv unturned to override the popular will am lo paek Iho senate with men of their owi making. Republicans of Nebraska a well as democrats should kocu u shari look-out on the political maniiuivers o the monopoly managers. They have ul ready shown their hand In Saline county where n bolting republican Candidate fo .senator has been endorsed by Tube Caste and the railroad democrats. In othe counties , where straight out ami on monopoly tools have been placed it nomination , the people should take can thai every such candidate is snowct under a mountain of votes. Assiirnnoo.s l In outlining plans for the new road It the northwest care should be taken U keep the project entirely separate am apart from any scheme for the oxtensioi of existing trunk lines. The movemen of last fall for the Omaha & North western was blighted in the bud by . proposition which turned out to be simply a well devised plan on the part o the Missouri Pacific to extend its line from Papillion to Yankcon. Their gen erous oil'ur to go on with the roail i Omaha would donate Jellerson squnn and a quarter of a million of dollars lars is still fresh in tin minds of our business men The chilly reception given to this pro posal allbrded convincing evidence thai Douglas county and Omaha knew whnl it wanted and was not willing to pay : dealer for anything else. Any proposition for a money subsidj for a railroad in the direction proposed if it is to be successful , must rest on cer tain definite assurances to our people In the lirst place , they must bo assured that the road is to strike and tap tin trade territory from which our merchants chants are now excluded. A road lo tin north is right enough in its way. If tin Missouri Pacific or llurliugton or nnj other line wishes lo conslruct it no om will object or throw a straw in their pall so long as Ihey put their hands ii their own pockets. The line whicl Omaha needs , and needs badly , is out which will run up the Elkhorn valley tap the fertile and well settled territory of northwestern Nebraska and entci into active competition with the North western railway in sections which thai corporation now controls without a rival The tav payers of Omaha and Douglas county who 1mvo donated hundreds oi thousands of dollars for roads to bo con trolled by Omaha capital and in Omaha's interest will require to bo assured thai the new railroad will not be operated as n stub to some great systen : whose terminal is elsewhere. Heforc iu * ttLstanco is voted , they will demantl pledges that the now railroad shall be trusted or that a majority of its stocli shall bo so lied up that envious rivals 01 scheming speculators shall not be able tc use it as n club to assail the men wht build il. Wo Imvo had Iwo such exper ienccs in limes past. Wo need no mori lo teach us the financial folly of such tin derlakings. Lastly , the people who wii be asked to assist the new enterprise an likely to demand assurances that tin proposed road shall bo honesty built. The hislory of railroai construction in Nebraska is a his tory of fraudulent scheming ot the part of railroad managers to enrinl themselves at the expense of the stock holders. The Union Pacific , in the wordi of one of its officers , was "milked dry bj corrupt management. " Construclior rings and lown lotsyndioates aropcculiai features of the two most extensive cor poratious in the state. The now road foi which apnoals to the people are being sc earnestly made , must , if built , be bull economically and honestly in the people' ; interests. A ConurosHiimn on Congress. Among the congressmen who imme diatuly after the adjournment expressei an unwillingness to return to Washing ton as representatives was the lion Abram S. Hewitt , of New York. Tin reason given by Mr , Hewitt at the Unit was tliat of general disgust with tin popular branch of the national legislature turo , and it is remembered that ho wai very explicit in denouncing the Ignorance ranco , stupidity and jealousies that cotv traded that body. Recently , Mr. Howiti has been again unbosoming himself t < the same effect to thu representative of i New York paper. Ho is quoted as sayinj that ho could see no reason why IK should go back to congress. After an ox porioncu of twelve years , during whicl he has been conscientiously endcavoriii } to promote legislation whioh ho believer to be for tlio general welfare , ho is nov compelled in contemplating the result of Ids work to regard his congressiona career as a failure. In explanation Mr Ho\yiU attributed his unhappy cxper ienco to two causes ono the ignoranei of congressmen touching the ques lions that purtain to the bust ness and commercial advance ment of the country , and Iho other tin personal jealousies of rival leaders The illustrations given by Mr. Howit of his explanatory causes need not bo vo peatcd In order to enforce thu justice o his complaint. No one will question I who is at all familiar with Iho charade of the popular Jbcaupk of congress. Com poSed largely of third-ralo lawyers , win never had a practical thought boyon ordering n suit of clot ie * , who ar wholly withoul experience of affairs of business character , and who luivn n liking for such mailers oven if they vet sesscd the ability to matter them , it I not surprising that the great financial commercial and industrial interests c the country nro cither continually sut jected to stupid anil injurious tampering or arc wholly neglected at times whci helpful legislation is most urgently di manded. It Is impossible to nritig lhc pettifoggers to ir.iderstnnd that the , can have any possible concern in the tin tional Interests unless they can someho\ bo given a political connection that mu bo turned to personal advantage , am with Ihe majority of them eousequentl , .Such questions receive only I ho mos-t can less anil perfunctory consideration , who ! they receive any at all. Not n- few u this class of nien represent important an intelligent constituencies , with large aiu growing interests. Indeed , they in most frequently found representing tin sort of a constituency. The intolligenc and integrity and fidelity in congress ar found most largely with the represent. ! lives of rural districts , the men whos constituents are chlelly farmers aiu small tradesmen , and not among tho.s who go from the irreut cities , with thei multifarious interests which ought to b represented by the wisest and most con seientious of their cili/.ons. If we wil examine the list of thu most useful mci in either branch wo will find tint they did not come from the grea centers of business. The cxpluim tion is readily found in the fact that ii the cities the political machine is mor potent than in the country , and tlio slick esl politician who secures the support o the rabble is the successful man , will liltlo regard lo his capabilities. Th question ot availability does not neccs nrily , or ordinarily , embrace inlelligenc ami integrity ; it means little more thai capacity to manage the machine , ant very generally the essential qualification of audacity and iinscrupulousness. With respect to tlio jealousies of riva leaders , the last session of congress wa prolific in examples. There was bardl ; a day of Iho session when Ihey were no moro or less conspicuously apparent They appeared oven in advance of tin assembling of the house , thny worriot lite speaker in making up the commit lees , and Ihey were obtruded in connec tion with every loading measure thai wn : inlrodneed by tlio majority. For I hi evil , and so it certainly if , there is per haps no remedy. Ambitions creati rivalry , which is the parent of contentioi and intrigue. 15ut improvement of congress gross in respect of the character ant qualifications of tiic men sent there doe : seem to be practicable , although it imy bo dillicult. Tlio prerequisite is a highc popular standard of merit , tli2 first con dilion in which should bo unqiicstionci integrity. No man against whom air charge of knavery or unscrupulous trickery can bo justly made should bi clothed with the duties and responsi bilities of a national law maker , what ever the degrco of his intelligcnci or smartness. To do so is to degrade tin onieo , already deteriorated from tltii cause , and lo endanger the general wel faro. It i. to put a premium on dishon csty , and cunning , and trickery. It is It yield lo the elements in society will which-theso qualities are most admired and to cneouragG tlio growth of sucl qualilios. Everywhere the intelligent self-respecting voters are numoroit enough to require that only men of tin highest merit shall represent them , am if they fail lo do so tlio fault and the losi will be theirs. Hliermnn on National Issues. With Senator Sherman , Governor For alter and Congressman McKinley on tin stump in Ohio , the republican cause n that state is certain to bo well taken can of. Mr. Sherman made his first speed in tlio campaign on Tuesday evening , ant addressed himself wholly to the consider ation of national questions. Wo ncet hardly say Unit they were prescdted will Unit candor and ability which nlwuyi chnracleri/.e Iho senator's public utter uncos and commend them to tlio titten lion of democrats as well as republicans The speech of Sonalor Sherman is ! uregnant arraignment of the democrat ! ) party for its causa regarding the treas ury surplus and its false pretense it claiming to be Ihu friend of labor , lit pointed out that while in tlio president ! ; ! campaign , with a view lo inlluonciin sontimeiil in certain western stales , tin democrats charged that the ropublicai administration had permitted the surplus to accumulate to an unnecessary amount with consequent injury to the businesi interests of the country and Iho well faro of the people , anil dcmandci that this surplus should bo released leased as soon as the democratic admin istralion came into power. This pretense tense of objection to the surplus was ro pudiated. ami within the first year of tin utlniinislralion the Ireasury reserve wa increased by ? 80.000,000. As to the clain of Iho democratic party that it is tin friend of labor , Mr. Sherman assorted "without reserve , doubt or qualification,1 that it has never framed or adopted an ; measure of substantial benefit to workinj men. "Tho republican party has placet upon the titututo books of Iho Unitei States every measure of practical utility to the laboring men to be found there and is ready to adopt any practical moas nro Unit will tend to improve , elovntu o advance Iho condition mental , moral o physical of the men who toil anil labo and their children,1' The course of tin democrats in congress inimical lo pen sion legislation was explained , and it wa said that "throughout the racent BOSS'.OI there was a manifest indisposition on tin part of the domocratio majority of tin house to grant any sunplemontal logisla lion in aid of pensions lo tin Union soldiers. " Regarding th silver question , Senator Shcrmai saitl : "Tho growing disparity ii intrinsic value between our gold am silver coin is now approaching a crisi that may at any time bring us to a single standard of silver. For one 1 feel botint to say thai I am in favor of an hones dollar made of either silver or gold coined at their respective market values anil that all other dollars , whether in tin form of groQ.ib.ioks or bank notes , o gold certificates or sliver certificates should bo equal to each other , of tli eamo purchasing power and value with out discount or degradation. 1 .am in moro in favor of cheap money than I an in favor of cheap labor or cheap words or cheap demagogjsrn. 1 want an lion cst silver dollar e-ttial 'to ' an honest golt dollar , and worth thnWmo in every par of thr I'liited Stales i\'nd of Ihe civllt/.ei world. " , _ , TIIK development , anil allegation connected with the penitentiary investl gallon in progress at Columbus , Ohio are < oine of them of the most shookinj character. The statement of ono of tin prisoners , that dead convicts wen skinned , ami the cnticc ) used in ma kin ; canes , taxes credulity to the uttermost ami for Ihe sake of humanity it must bt hoped that the allegation will bo showi to bo false. Charges against thu lad management of other outrages an hardly less incredible , though they up pear to be supnortcd by ample test ! inony. Altogether the development thus far made show Ihe administrutioi of the Ohio penitentiary for the pa > t fev years to Imvo been oharaelerl/ed b ; abuses nntl alrocitles of the most rcpre heiisiblo nature. Force and credibility are given to the charges made by tin discovery on Tuesday thai two of tin prisoners whet > e testimony is most im portant mid probably been poisoned , uni tills hasgreatly intensified lite excitenien incident to the disclosures. No punish ment win bo lee severe for the seoiin drels guilty of these barbarous outrages Tin : pretended draft of a now lishlnj treaty which lias been widely publisher and considerably commented upon , turns oul to bo a pure fiction , doubtless tlevisei by some acute newspaper correspondent A Washington paper n few days age charged that it had been made public bi the English foreign ollice in advaucn o its being received by the state depurl ment and characteri/.ed the proceeding as a piece of discourtesy. Credulity wa ; given to the deception from the fact thu it originated in Ottawa , the Catiatliai capital. A London dispatch states no ! only the report was a fabrication , bill that no such treaty has been proposed b.\ either government. The matter in con tfoversy has been under consideration , but tito progress made as yet has not readied the treaty-making point. The siib-eonimittcoon foreign relations of the senate , cnargcd with the duty of invest ! gating Ihe subject , is now in session ii Boston. ( JKNEUAI , KATMIAKS has boon charged by Itussiii with the delivery of an nlti malum lo Uulparia , tlio elleet of ncced ing to which would virtually bo an ae knowledgment of the Russian right tc control the onltro legislation of the country. It is hardly possible lliat it will bo acceded to , ami Kusblu will then uithoi confine herself to an outward semblance of resignation and the'maturing ' of mori plots , or else wliljsh ii $ more probable-- elect to cross tlu > Danube. Meanwhik Austria will shortly b lieard from. The llungavian chamber. ! of deputies lias asked for information ns lo Ihe proposed policy of Iho A'ustro-IIHingnrinn govern ment , couching its > quo'slion in terms thai leave no doubt as to tlip intensity of thti auti-Hussinn fooling. , Hungary is nol likely to submit quietly to any measure which would strengthen Slavic influence in the Balkan peninsula. TIIEKE is a loud all , from Ihe citizens -North Omaha that a norlli ami south street bclwecn Sixteenth and Saunders shall be uaved as early in the spring as uossiblo. Both these thoroughfares will bo in good condition before winter sets in , but there will bo no cross street on which easy and safe travel will be af forded. Either Clark or draco street should bo selected and paved as soon a. funds are available for that purpose , With an extension of the sidewalks on each side to thirteen feet , a thirly foot roadway would afford sufficient room for all the demands of travel. To pave this space would not bo burdensome to prop erty owners while it would greatly im prove that section of the city. THE deep felt sympathy of the repub lican boodle organ over the refusal of the Otoe delegation and Senator Van Wj'ck to support Kosowator is very touching , It is , however , quite superfluous. Kosn- water is still in the ring and Senator Van Wyclc shows no signs of throwing up the sponge at the demand of his enemies. GUAUINC on llarnoy and Sixteenth streets should bu pushed before cold weather sets in. Hotli of these streets will bo demanding paving next year , and it is highly important that the ground should have ample time to settle during the winter. Coi.oNici , COUIY has hail as hard work to keep out of a coat of tar anil feathers as Church Howe has hail to escape the peni tentiary. They are a beautiful brace of republican rascals to appeal for thu sup port of honest men. LAUD has dropped. The olcomargarin law which goes into cil'ect next montn is likely to drop it still further. Colored pork fat will then no longer bo palmed off on an unsuspecting public as "best creamery.

The republicans of the First distrlc should ask themselves whether n ma having sueh n record as that of Chiire llo wo has any rightful claim upon th support of any decent republican. Loa\ ing oul of question his corrupt method and notorious venality wo appeal lore publicans to pause and relleet bo for they put a premium upon party tre : son mul conspiracy against its very oxlsl cnco. Ten years ago , when the ropublir.ai party was on the verge of disnstor , utu every electoral volt * cast for Hayes an Wheeler win needed to retain thu part , in power , Church Howe entered int n conspiracy to deliver ropublicai Nebraska into tlio hands of the enemy This in famous plot is not a mure oonjec turo. The proof of it does not rest o' ' surmise or suspicion. It is not lo b pooh-poohed or brushed away liy pro nonliving it one of Ko > ewatcr's mulieiou campaign slanders. The records of Ihe legislature f wldo ! Church Howe was u member in ' 7(1-7 ( contain the indelible proofs of thu irons oiniblu conspiracy , and no denial cui stand against evidence furnished by hi own pen. liriolly told , the hislory of ( hi plan to hand over Iho country to Tildei anil democracy is as follows : In 1870 Nebraska elected Silas A Strickland , Amasa Cobb and A. 11 Connor presidential electors by a vole o 31,1)10 as against a vole of KJ.tWI casl fo llioTilden and Hendricks electors , Afto the election it wns discovered that tin canvass of ( his vote could not take placi under the then existing law before tin legislature convened. The electoral vol had to bo canvassed in Decembe at the latest , and the regular 305 sion of the legislature did not bccii until January. In order to maki a legal canvass of the electoral returns Governor Garbcr culled a special sessioi of llie legislature to convene on tliootho December , ' 711 , at Lincoln , for the pur pose of canvassing the electoral vote o Iho stato. The democratic effort to capture turo republican electoral votes is historic Tilden's friends , notably Dr. Miller , hat been plotting for the capture of one o the electors from Nebraska , anil it is alst historic that a largo bribe was offered t < one of the electors , General Strickland The call of the legislature broke into tin plan of the plotters , and thny found a will ing anil reckless tool in Church Howe Whim thu legislature convened at the cap ! tal.Churoh llowo Illod a protest which imn bo found on pages 0 , 7 and 8 of the No brnska House Journal of 1877. The fol lowing extract makes interesting reading " 1 , Church Howe , a member of the lesiffla ture of Nebraska , now convened by procla mutton of his excellency , ( Sovcrnor Sllai ( Jarber. for the purpose of canvassing ant declaring the result of tlio vote casl in Nc braslca for electors for president and vici president of the United States , hereby cute : my solemn protest against such act , donyiiu tliat the governor has power to call tins liodj in special session for any swh purpose , o : that this body has any authority to canvas : or declare thu result of such vote upon tin followini : grounds : Pirst Tills legislature now convened hav ing been elected under what is known as tin oltl constitution , has no power to act in tin premises , tlio now constitution of the statt having boon in foico.since November , 1875. ' The second and third clauses deal will technical objections ami arc somewhai lengthy. The concluding sentences ol this precious document arc as follows "For the foregoing reasons I protest against any canvass of the electoral yeti of the slate by Ibis body , and dumunc that tliis , my protest , bo entered upoi the journal. " ( Signed ) Church llowo member of the legislature of Nebraska. The democrats did not respond to the call of Ihe governor and there was barelj a quorum in Ihe semite , while there were Hovcral to spare in the house of whicl Howe was a member. The protosl eu tcred by Howe was doubtless preparet by the Tildon lawyers in Omaha am llowc hud Ihe glory of being Ihe soli champion of Sam Tildcn. The Icgisla lure ignored Church Howe , spread hit protest on its record and canvassed the electoral vote in spite of it. When the legislature convened in Jan uary , 1877 , the presidential contest wns at its height in Washington. Churcl Howe had changed places from the house to Iho senate. Early in tlio Hessian , u resolution was introduced expressing tin conviction on the part of the senate thai Hayes and Wheeler having received si majority of the electoral votes were civ tilled lo their seats. This resolution gave rise to a very lively debate whlcl : lusted two davN. Church llowo askeu tc bo excused from voting when it lirsl cumu up and was so excused. On the final passage of the resolution tlio record [ page 870 , Senate Journal 1877 , ] shows the following resull : Yeas Ambrose , IJainl , Hlanchard , Bryant , Calkins , Cams , Chapman , Colby , Uawes , Garfield - field , ( lillmm , Hayes , Ken nan I , Knapp , I'onoon , Powers , Thunimol , Van Wyck , Walton ami Wileox 20. Those volir.g in tlio negative were ; Aton , Ilrown , Covell , Ferguson , Hinman , Holt , Church llowo and North 8. During the same ! session of the legisla ture , Church Howe's vote on United States senator for the first Ihreo ballots i < 3 recorded an haying been cast for E , W. Thomas , a South Carolina democrat , I pages 108 and U08 Senate Journal. ] All this time Church Howe professed to bo a republican independent , republican on national issues and a temperance granger on local Issues. Wo simply ask what right a man with such a record has to thu support of any republican. UIU113NT T01MCS. i Wi/rollas with a glass look-out In front uro now and of 1'arlslan make.
