Dit. ( MiLLKit pretends to bo horror-
stricken over the possibility of the sub
mission of u nrohibitlon amendment , of
which ho has no fcara. Ilis real anxiety
is that a railroad republican may not bo
elected to raltlo around in the senatorial
brogans of Charles H. Van \Y yok.

dacy in Nebraska ? Every railroad at

corporations in the United States senate' '
ffom this state.
Tin ; liorriblo discovery la made that

tor Vim Wyck'B ' Washington liouso is no
bettor than n score of houses in Omaha
and stands tenth rate among Washington
iiomcs. It is unique among senatorial
houses on ono account. It was built with
the senator's own money , every pcuny of
which was honestly earned ,
KEEP it before the board of public
works that there are n do/.cn buildings

AMONG the old papers in the county
clerk's office m Freehold , N , J. , is the
death sentence of a negro named Ciusnr.
It roads : "Therefore the court doth judge
thaUhou , the said Crosar , shall return to
the place from whence thou earnest , and
from thence to the place of execution ,
when thy right Jiand shall bo out oil' and
burned before thine eyes. Then thou
shall bo hnngod up by the neck until
ikon art dead , dead , dead ; then thy body
shall bo out down and burned to ashes in
a'ilro , and BO the Lord havonieroy on thy

present day seems to Jmvo maintained
the severity of its primitive 6toot.
The l oor Farm Sale.
Although advised by the county attor
ney that they had full power to cell the
poor farm without authority from the
people , the county commissioners have
decided to submit the proposition to
voters t the next election. Several
wealthy capitalists and real estate men ,
who are said to be confident of securing
the be .t slice of the property , thought
that their titles uouhl bo bolter if the
voters of Uotiglas county should direct
the sale The cbmtn ! sioucrs have ac
cordingly bowed to their decision , and
our citi/cns will bo given n chance no\t
month to approve or rofu'-o approval of
the proposition. The proclamation calls
for public sanction of the stale of the cast
fifty acres of the properly now
used for poor farm purposes ,
the proceeds to be used In
the erection of a county hospital , infirm
ary and asylum for Iho insane. It au-
thorl/.cs the platting Of the ground into
city lots and blocks , Us appraisal by three
tllslnlcroited clt'zens ' nnd its public sale
to the highest bidder for cash , the prieo
in no case to fall below the apuralscd val
uation. These conditions obviate in great
part the objections made n year ajro
against the sale of the property. If faith
fully carried out they ought to secure for
the county a fair return on its property.
The only suspicious point Is the icquiro-
mcnl of cash down. It .scents to us that
the county could have better afforded to
make the terms a third cash and the
balance on thrco years' lime , dispos-
inc ; of the morlgftuus when the money
was needed. With such terms bidding
would bo more spirited , prices higher ,
and capitalists with a large amount of
ready cash would bo forced to compote
with purchasers of smaller means. The
cash proviso will restrict the bidding and
give gicater chance for combinations to
kcop down prices.
Wi h this exception tlio proposition on
its face is a fair one. It will doubtless
carry by a largo majority. The county
needs a hospital badly , and an insane
ward even worse. The sale of the portion
tion of tlio poor farm which it is proposed
to put in the market will prevent the
necessity of calling for bonds. At the
same time it will improve the remainder
of the property and greatly increase its
Those School Conundrums.
Jlr. Long , of Iho school board , was
not far out of the way when he referred
to Mr. IMackburn's catechism of school
chestnuts as in alargodegrco "consisting
of more buncombe calculated in a great
measure to draw attentir n to Mr. Ulack-
burn. " A great philosopher once re
marked that any fool could ask questions
which it would bother a sago to answer.
Mr. Blackburn's conundrums have not
even the merit of novelty. Five of thorn
ask for information in regard to tlio free
dom given to children in one ward to at
tend schools in another. In a graded
school system in a city of tlio si/.o of
Omaha it is impossible to fur
nish a grammar school in every
ward. At present our poimla-
tion desiring the higher secondary
education is scattered and pupils in the
higher grade classes arc often obliged to
sock instruclion at schools moro or loss
distant from their homos.Vo have 310
pupils i.i our high school. To round out
Mr. Ulackburn's enquiries ho should have
added another asking why pupils from
the First and Sixth wards were allowed
to attend school on Capitol hill. The re
vival of the basement room scare was
uncalled for and ridiculous. The school
basements are no moro "basements , "
properly speaking , than nine-tenths of
tlio dining rooms in brick residences in
Omaha. Eight rooms of this class all
told are occupied for school purposes ,
nnd they arc as bright and dry , as
chcorful and healthy , as could bo
desired. A basement from six :
inches to two feet , under ground
with broad windows and free air has
never yet injured the most delicate
hc.-ilth. Mr. Blackburn's queries about
lack of contentment among teachers ,
rumored bickerings , etc. , could bo put to
the school board of any other city as
well as to that of Omaha. They always
have existed and always will exist under
any system , however perfected and sys
tematized. The best management only
reduces them in amount and number. So
long us touchers are ambitious for higher
grades and liighor pay there will | jo jeal
ousy of those above thorn nnd lack of
contentment on the part of those who
fail to rccoi"5 what they believe to bo
their deserts. Mr. Blackburn lias been
for many years in the Union Pacific
headquarters. Ho knows as well us
anybody in Omaha the constant bicker
ings among the clerks nnd officials
in that establishment. If Mr. Kimbull ,
Mr , Clarlc orCallowjiy had been asked by
Mr. Blackburn to find a good reason wiy |
such a state of things existed , nnd to de
vise some means by whiph It could bo for
ever stopped , they would hayo shrugged
their shoulders , turned on their heels and
walked away.
' Thcro Is no doubt much to bo done in
improving our school system. If instead
of asking thirteen conundrums , Mr.
Blackburn had brought forward ft Single
resolution to do away with some admit
ted abuse , his suggestions would have
been in order. As Jt Is , ho has simply
succeeded in croatlng further discord and
in making mutters worse rather than
Since the Now York Sun published
some days ngo nil extended interview
with Mr. Henry Ucorgo , the labor candi
date for mayor of that city , ii : which ho
very fully expressed himself as to what
should bo done nnd what ho should en
deavor to do in the event of his election ,
an oppoitunity has been given for weigh
ing and measuring this now most inter
esting loader of labor which the news
papers have not denied thenuolvos. Of
course the result is moro or loss in
fluenced by the political bias of tlio com
mentators , but on the whole Mr , George
has reason to fool gratified that about
the most serious fault found with him is
that ho is merely a thoorlst and not H
man of affairs , and that consequently ho
is peculiarly destitute of thn special
qualifications which the circumstances
of the time require in the mayor of Now
York city. This objection , however ,
really amounts to llttlo more than saying
that Mr. George is not an experienced
politician , that ho isn't familiar with the
methods of the machine , and that ho
doesn't understand fixing primaries and
manipulating conventions. But lie is in
his present position simply because ho
lacks this knowledge , probably deemed
essential in n Now York mayor , anil
it is because of this lack that the
men wlio are supporting him bcllovo
that he would make a thoiottghlj honest
and upright executive , who would not bo
cither the creature of the politicians or a
political boss.
It is not doubled that Mr. George
would timl it impracticable t6 carry out
sonic of his theories which are very much
at war with the uxistinc stale of thluK * .
but this does not prove that they are in
correct and that no effort should bo made
logivo them a Irial. Nobody will pre
tend that perlcction has been reached In
the methods of government , and Mr.
( leorgo gives some evcc-llont reasons for
his faith , llo would of course , howe\er ,
as Iho mayor of Now York , find himself
hedged about by conditions and restric
tions which would not allow him much
latitude for trying new expedients , and
this fact ho quite fully understands.
There Is one thing in his favor , and that
is ho seems to bo an entirely frank and
outspoken man. Regarding his socialism
ho Miys : "I am n socialist in the sense of
ono who desires social improvement ,
and believes social improvement to bo
possible. But 1 am not a socialist In the
sense attached to the term by numbers of
people who associate with it the destruc
tion of individual enterprise- and n
division of property. " On the
contrary ho says ho is n
thorough believer in the right
of properly. The cardinal fea
ture in his political creed is that "all men
have a right to do as they please &o long
as they observe the equal rights of
others. " lie is evidently not a believer in
civil service reform , for ho says that as
mayor ho would give the prcfetenco in
appointment * to the men who supported
him and who wore in sympathy with his
views. llo leaves no doubt as to his posi
tion as an advocate of the fullest free
trade , and is opposed to contract labor
and pauper immigration. On the whole ,
Mr. Gcorgo stales his views clearly
ami o\plicilly , so thai no ono can mislako
them , and in saying that as mayor his
ambition would bo to make a clean and
jrood rccoid he is doubtless sincere.
\Virii \ all duo respect to Mr. Puxlon
and wilh uropor appreciation of his JJ - ,
terprisc we would ask whether Fnrnti.l
street and Sixteenth are to bo bldc.idcu
all winter and next .summer with his
building material. For months , men ,
women and children have boon com
pelled to take the middle of the street in
passing Mr. I'u.xton's block. Now that
Ills area under the sidewalk is bricked
over why cannot something bo done to
make thu btreet passable over thorn. In
other cities where largo blocks are built
at least half the sidewalk is always kept
clear. These are mailers for the board
of public works to alloiul lo.
Tin : democrats of Massachusetts , in
nominating as their candidate for gov
ernor a man who , until two years ago ,
was an active republican , and who with
drew from Ihc party not because dissat
isfied with its principles , but for the rea
son that ho was hostile to its candid ate
for president , simply confessed that they
are weak in men who coi-ld stand upon
such a platform as they were compelled
londopt without appearing ridiculous.
Tlio Boston Advertiser points out a prece
dent to this action in the nomination of
Horace Greoloy , in 1872 , which was
prompted by the hunger of the democ
racy for success , and remarks that the
similar folly in Massachusetts will have a
similar ending. Mr. Andrew required as a
condition of his acceptance of the nomi
nation that the platform should declare
certain things , among them an explicit
endorsement of civil service reform.
There arc hundreds of democrats in
Massachusetts , us clsowhero , who arc op
posed to that policy , and they will not
swallow its approval niaito at the dicta
tion of one who so recently as two years
ngo was actively opposed to them , and
who la not now understood to favor the
general policy and principles of democ
racy. Ilonco it is reasonably assumed
that Mr. Andrew cannot command , not-
withslandingtho unanimity und enlhusi-
asm of his IK , Mnntion , the full demo
cratic supportS'Tho ' men who have in
public and private denounced the meth
ods and appointments of the president
will not stultify themselves by giving
him their votes. Nor will ho probably
bcablo to draw from tlio republican
ranks a stiincioutuumbor to baltinco this
democratic loss. It is very likely the republicans -
publicans could have made a choice of n
gubernatorial candidate who would have
proved stronger than Mr. Ames , but it
is not doubted that their clniuco of win
ning oy the regular majority lias not boon
reduced by the action of llio democrats
in placing n. disgruntled republican in
the leadership of tie | party.
TUB Now York Commercial and Finan
cial Chronicle takes a liopoful. view of
what may rnsult from thq.ifqulry nnd
action of the BrlUstTlloyal commis
sion on the ojirr noy , appointed by the
Salisbury ministry with particular rofor-
cncti to the silver problem. It rogavuis
the step taken us a most decided oua in
the direction of a solution of that perplexing -
plexing question , and while it does not
expect that the commission is to bring
England to blmotalism , and thinks the
bringing of Greut Britain lo assist in
rehabilitating silver may bo a long way
off and to bo attained perhaps only
through a very rough oxporlonco , yet it
boliuvcs the final achievement of such
rostorallon is certain. It is a require
ment of thu world's commoroo which
will enforce itself , nnd such are the
circumstances that Great Britain will be
come in the outl tJiu strongest advocate
of the white metal that tlio world con
tains. Thoru is undoubtedly substantial
ground for this view in the growing stress
of England's trade nud the condition ol
India , and it is a reasonable expectation
that the commission , in following the
instructions uudor which it is to act and
complying with Uw desire of tlio govern
ment as evidenced in the instructions ,
Will udvanco the cause of biinetalism in
Great Britain.

profound penetration to discover consid

Mr. Hill when ilist'insing the national
administration that "no ono man was

A xfMiir.n of petitions were filled with
the city council at its last meeting ie-
questing the council to increase Iho num
ber of volmg places in various wards.
The council has no right to grant this re-
quest. Their nulhority is confined en
tirely lo city elections. The election on
the Sd of November is a stale and county
election. The voting places are fixed by
the county commissioners bj * precincts ,
and not by wards. The commissioners
may establish as many voting places in
each precinct ns they sco fit , but they
alone have the authority to supervise the
election. While it is very desu-ftblo that
there should bo moro voting places in
several of the city precincts , there may bo
legal obstacles in Iho way which will pre
vent Iho commissioners from granting
the request. The commissioners have
already issued a proclamation PubmUting
lo Iho voters of this county the propo
sition lo soil llio cast fifty acres of the
poor farm and apply the proceeds thereof
to the building ol a county hospital. This
proclamation designated all the voting
places in Iho county. Now , it is a ques
tion upon which we do not claim to bo
competent to pass an opinion , whether
Iho commissioner can change Iho voliug
places or add lo their number without

Connor presidential elcclors by a vote of
: , ! i ] ( ! as against a vole of lJr ( , > l cast for
the Tildcn and llondrieks electors. After
the election it was discovered that the
canvass of this vote could not take place
under tlio then cxlsllng law before Iho
legislature convened. The electoral vote
had to bo canvassed In December
at. the latest , and the regular ses
sion of iho legislature did not bcirin
until January. In order to make
a legal canvass of the electoral returns ,
Governor Garbcr called a special session
of the legislature to convene on the nth of
December , ' 70 , at Lincoln , for the pur-
posiof canvassing the electoral vote of
the stale. The democratic effort to cap
ture republican electoral voles is historic.
Tildun's friends , notably Dr. Miller , had
bcon plotting for the capture of ono of
the electors from Nebraska , and it is also
historic that a largo bribe was offered to
ono of the electors , General Strickland.
The call of the legislature broke into Ihc
plan of the plotters , nnd they found a will
ing and reckless lool in Church Howo.
When the legislature convened at the capi-
lal.Church Howe Illod a protest which maybe
bo found on uagcs 0 , 7 and 8 of the Ne
braska HOUMJ Journal of 1877. The fol-
lowingexlract makes interesting reading :
" 1 , Chinch llowo , a member ot the legisla
ture of NebiasUa , now convened by procla
mation of his excellency , Governor Silas
Garbor , for the purpose of canvassing and
declaring the result of the vote cast in Ne
braska for electors for president nnd vice
president of tlio United States , licieby enter
my solemn protest against such act , denying
thnt the governor has power to call this body-
in special session for any stu-h purpose , or
thnt this body has any nuthoi ity to canvasser
or declare the result of such vote upon the
following grounds :
First , This lozislaturc now convened hav
ing been elected under what Is known ns the
old constitution , has no power to act In the
promises , the now constitution of the state
having been in foico since November , lb7.V
The second and third clauses deal with
technical objections and are somewhat
lengthy. The concluding sentences of
this precious document arc as follows :
"For the foregoing reasons I protest
ngainst any canvass of tlio electoral vote
of the state by this body , and demand
that this , my protest , bo entered upon
the journal. " ( Signed ) Church Howe ,
member of the legislature of Nebraska.
The democrats did not respond to the
call of the governor and there was barely
a quorum in the senate , while there wore
several to spare In the house of which
Howe was a member. The protest en
tered by Howe was doubtless prepared
by the Tildcn lawyers in Omaha and
Howe had the glory of being the solo
Champion of Sam Tildon. The legisla
ture ignored Church llowo , spread his
protest on its record and canvassed tlio
electoral vote in spite of it.
AVliun the legislature convened in Jan
uary , 1877 , tlio presidential contest was
at its liciaht in Washington. Church
Howe had changed places from the liouso
to the senate. Early in the session , a
resolution was introduced expressing the
conviction on the parr of the senate that
Hayes and Wheeler having received a
majority of the electoral votes were on-
tilled to their scats. This resolution
gave rise to a very llyely aobato wliiah
lasted two davs. Church Howe askou to
bo c ctisod from voting when it iirst
came up and was so excused. On llio
final passage of the resolution the record
[ page 870 , Senate Journal 1877 , ] shows
the following result ; Yeas Ambrose ,
Balrd , Blanohard , Bryant , Cajkins ,
Cams , Chapman , Colby , Dawes , Garfield -
field , Gilham , Hayes , Kenuard , Knupp ,
Popoon , Powers , Tluimmol , Van Wyck ,
Walton and WHeox 20.
These voting in the negative were :
Aton , Brown , ( Jovollj Ferguson , llinman ,
Holt , Church Howe and Nortli-8.
-Daring the same session of the legisla
ture , Church Howe's vole on Untied
States senator for tiio first thrco ballots is
recorded as haying been cast for B. W.
Thomas , a South Carolina democrat ,
[ pages 108 and 203 Smiate 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 n man with such a record has to'
the support of any republican.
