An Arbitrary
The action of the republican county
committvo in removing Mr. Hibbard
from lliu list of legislative nominrm and
rcplncmg him with another candidate of
their choice , was a very arbitrary pro
eocdiiiK. It was without precedent , ami
clearly lx > yond the power of the cout' '
nnttpo. The republican party had matlc
its choice of candidates in n regular dele'
gate contention , nnd tlieso delegate ;
alone hail tlie rlglit to make and unmake
candidates. The committee bad nc
aulhoiity wliatcvur to pass upon the lit
ness of any candidate or hi5
political standing , livery candidate who
holds Ins title Iroin the coir
venlion is the peer of every olliev
candidate. The committee is simply
vested with the power to iill vacancies ,
not to create them. If it is conceded that
the committee can take oll'iiny onu can
didate and replace him with another ol
their own choice , its power to substitute
a now sot of candidates for the entire
ticket would have to be granted. If the
county committee can drop n candidate
and put on another , the congressional
and state committees could if they saw
lit do the same thing. Charges of a very
grave character afl'euting Church llowo's
integrity and his republicanism have
been bronchi nuil the committee
could very properly invite Church
Howe to explain his conduct.
They might even go so far as to invite
him to resign , but if he refusad to resign
no oowur on earth could take him oil' .
Ihe action of the committee with
regard to Ilibbard hits no precedent and
cannot be allowed to stand as one. H
creates a new departure in politics which
makes nominations by conventions use
less and worthless. It coiitralixoH the
power of destroying si ticket and nulli
fying the will of the party as oxprcssed
through the primary election in the hands
of a do/en men who make up a committee
quorum. In this case the injubtlco done
is manifest on its face. Mr. Ilibbard
was charged by certain personal enemies
and defeated candidates for the legisla
ture , chief among whom was Herman
Titnme , with having voted for Cluvi'land
and being opposed to Church llowe.
Now Tmuno himself ortianixcd a Cleve
land and liendricks club in Juil'er.sou
preeinct while a member of the republi
can county committee and he has been a
member of it over since. The committee
has the power to cxpei Tim mo for a
broach of political trust , but it lias never
even asked him to explain. Timme guts
a proxy for Frank Walters from his
dummy in Jofl'orson precinct , Clam Oft ,
and that disreputable shy.ster Walters is
allowed to arraign Mr. Ilibbard before
the committee , and votes to take
him elf the ticket. Mr. Ilibbard
in a frank and manly way stated Unit ho
would support the whole county ticket
on the platform on which he was nomi
nated , but declined to take his coat oil
for Church llowo. In this Mr. Ilibbard
only stated what hundreds of republi
cans on and oil'tho various county tick
ets of this district tire saying , although
some may bo liypociilical enough to
profess that they are supporting the
Nomaha fraud. Mr. Ilibbard was not
present , and until he sees lit to resign
from the ticket ho remains the nominee
of the republican party. In the contest
over his place Timme and the oilier dis
gruntled conspirators were beaten , and
Mr. Gilmore , against bis own protest ,
was elected , mainly because Union pre
cinct wis : accorded the ollico. Mr. ( jil-
more himself i.s an excellent man , but
until Mr. Ilibbard retires voluntarily
from the ticket he will not regard himself
as entitled to the support of tlie paity.
That Hypocritical Orilcr.
It is given out by Colonel Dan Lament
that the reason why the president has
taken no action in the matter of federal
olllcn holders who are said to have violated
lated his order was that , up to the present
time no specific charges had'been tiled.
His only information consisted of letters
from unknown persons and newspaper
reports. Does the require ,
then , a personal acquaintance witli the
writer of a letter to give him assurance
of the truth of the information contained
in it ? And arc newspaper statements to
go for nothing with a man wlto has made
it ono of the chief duties of his private
secretary to keep him accurately ad
vised of the contents of the public press ?
Mr. Cleveland has boon too short a
time in public lifo , and especially has
been too recently transferred from state
to national politics to have n very oxion-
sivo personal acquaintance throughout
the country , and the chances are that a
hundred men of such prominence in state
and national aflairs ns to make them
honored correspondents might write
to him , not ono of whom ho had
over met or personally known.
Tor that reason ate theirs letters and
statements to bo ignored ? The press
also , when it praises him , is quoted as
accurately reflecting public opinion , but
when it says that this and thr.t con volition
has been run after the old liomocratio
way by Uis newly appointed oflicials. are
the statoiYlonts to bo rejected as news
paper lies ?
From whom does the president expect
formal charges , sworn to before a notary ?
From republicans ? It docs nol concern
our party if democratic officials are
everywhere as aotivo as they were before
their appointment in caucusslng , pack
ing primaries and controlling their con
ventions , It concerns only their own
party , and the president who , to please
the mugwumps , made an order that ho
does not enforce and that his puity know
ho would not. Does ho expect members
of his own party to tattle ? Democrats
are not much given to reporting that us a
sin which they have always regarded as
a political virtue. . They would not toll
on an otllclril boss for defeating thorn to
day , because they oxpcot at sorno time to
bo ofllcial bosses themselves. And it
republican newspapers report the facts
as current news of the day , the state
ments are ignored by the president as
party UPS.
Republicans are interested in this mat
ter only to the extent of showing how
great a political fraud a man can become
who attempts to mix mugwumpory w ith
democracy. To conciliate the mug
wumps ho announced that ho would not
Comoro good men from ofllco on Bpcouut
of their politics , but at the sumo time ho
invented the "ollonsivo partisan" reason
for making all the removals that his
party demanded. When this became
odious ho rtibstituted the other phrase ,
"pernicious activity , " and under it con
tinues the removals that ha was not
manly enough to make on good old dem
ocratic grounds.
Everybody knows that the most perni
ciously active or actively pernicious dem
oerats throughout the land won chosci
to replace republicans , not only ns n re
ward for past parly service , but tostimu
late thorn to gro'ator activity in the fu
lure. Kvory move that is made , over ,
pipe that is laid is with the direct intcn
of strengthening the party hold upon th
country nnd securing its continuance li
power. That is legitimate onotigh if i
wotc only done a In manly instead of
hypocritical way. It is said in the sam
dispatch to which wo refer that after all
the L-lnirgos made in letters fron
persons \\hom the president doesn'
know , nndln newspaper report
that he doesn't believe , liav
been copied at the treasury tun
sent to the Indiana oflicials for nnswci
Collector Ktilin , of Indianapolis , bcinj
especially named. Of cour o the explanation * ami flimsiest excuse
\\illbcmado anil aeeop'.ed , and no re
niovtils will follow. As the New Yorl
H'orMsaid , if just one removal wen
made for disobedience of the president'
order , the people would believe he Mican
what lie said , but that ono romo\al wil
not bo made , and tlie people do not be
licve that ho ever meant to do it.

The death of a Rothschild is always i

the policy of the great bankinj

Dying in 1812 , Meyer left live sons , An
solm , Solomon , Nathan , Charles am
James , who established themselves res
pcctively at Franklort , Vicuna , London
Naples and Paris , and excepting that a
Naples these houses still exist. Moye :
Karl , the Rothschild now dead at Frank

and hoiul of the house.
During the second generation the pol

The history of this family in Englam
lias boon singular , as marking the abate
ment of a race prejudice. An act o
denixation was passed by parliament ii

The Rothschilds have always been distin
guished , as individuals , for modesty o
deportment and for nriosteiitatioui

and integrity. They have not alone booi
bankers , but they have mined gold it
Russia , salt iu Siberia , silver in Contra
America , and have been and are cngagct
in other vast commercial enterprise1
with which tlio floating of national loam
has no direct connection.
Their rule of business is to requin
strict obedience to the letter of instruo
tions , nnd always to reward success. Ai
instance is in point. An old and failhfu.

for his disobodionca.
Some of the finest estates and castle :
in Europe are owned in the family , ye
the dingy old ofllcc in Fruukforl and tin
early homo of the family are rotainci
almost unchanged. They do not forgo
their humble origin or modest begin
ulngs. Indeed , these who bccomo really
great , financially or otherwise , soldon
do. The poor boy who becomes u millionaire
lionairo , a governor , senator or prcsl
dent often spooks freely of his humbli
beginning if ho does not retain souvenir
of it. It is the man who is rising or striv
ing to rise that socks to conceal the earl ;
days or hard conditions of his life. Who !
ho has reached the biiminit ho oftoi

As wo said , there will bo no change it

Tin : railroad companies have found
from sad experience that there is much
dill'urenee In the quality of steel rails.
The Chicago , Burlington & Quincy Kail-
road company wants to buy 20,000 ton
for 1887 , hut It wants the rails made ol
material in which there is CO per cent ol
charcoal Iron , and in addition it wants a
live-year guarantee of the wearing qual
ity , and it wants to decide for itself
whether the rails fullill the conditions re
quired. The l.ito Air. Vumiorbilt bought
EnglUh rails and paid tlie tar ill'on them ,
because they would outwear these of
American make. Tlie steel mills in this
country are turning out a bolter quality
of tails in consequence of larger experi
ence. They find that they must have
proper ores , and tlie eastern mills are
using largo quantities of foreign ores in
making their Bessemer pig.
Now that Harnoy street is being put to
its limit gr.ido we hope that will be
no personal favoritism shown to any

property owners who pay for their share
of the improvement to have the street

the sidewalk and to bo compelled to
climb up and down tlie sidewalk because
the board of public works \yinks at ob

Thj records of tlio legislature of which
Church Howe wa a member In ' 70-77 ,
contain the indelible proofs of the treasonable
enable conspiracy , and no denial can
stand against evidence furnished by his
own pen. Briefly told , the history of this
plan to hand over the country to Tilden
and democracy is as follows :

Connor presidential electors by a vote of
ill.liltl as again-tl a vote of KV.Kil cast for
ho Ti Idtm and liendricks electors. After
the election it was discovered that the
canvass of this vote could not take place
under the then existing law before tlie

at the latest , and the regular ses
sion of the legislature did not boirln
until January. [ u order to make
a legal canvass of the electoral returns ,

pose of canvassing the electoral vote of
the state. Tlio democratic effort to cap
ture republican electoral votes is historic.
Tildeif s friends , notably Dr. Miller , had
boon plotting for the capture of nno of
the electors from Nebraska , and it is also
historic that a largo bribe was offered to
one of tlio electors , General Strickland.
The call of tlio legislature broke into the
plan of the plotters , and they found a will
ing and reckless tool in Church Howe.
When thn legislature convened at the capi-
tal.Church llowo Illed a protest whioli maybe
bo found on pages 0 , 7 and 8 of tlio Ne
braska House Journal of 1877. The fol-
lowiugcKtract makes interesting reading :
" 1 , Church llowo , a member of the legisla
ture of Nebraska , now convened by procla
mation of his excellency , Governor Silas
liarbcr , for tlio pmposo of canvassing nnd
duclatinij the result of the vote cast in Ne
braska for elector.- , for president and vice
president of the United States , hereby enter
my solemn protest against such act , donylm ;
tlmt the governor has power to call tins body
in special session lor any snHi piiipose , or
that this body lias any authority to canvasser
or declare the result ot such vote upon the
foliowim ; grounds :
1'lrst. This loalslatnro now convened hav
ing been elected under what is known as the
old constitution , has no power to act In the
premises , the now constitution of the state
bavins been in toieo slnco November , 1875. "
The second and third clauses deal with
technical objections and arc somewhat
Lmgtliy. The concluding sentences of
this precious document are as follows :
"For the foregoing reasons I protest
against any canvass of tlio electoral vote
of the state by- his 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 honso of which
Howe was a member. The protest en
tered by llowo was doubtless prepared
by the Tilden lawyers in Omaha and
llowe had the glory of being the sole
champion of Sam Tilden. The legisla
ture ignored Church llowo , spread his
protest on its record and canvassed the
electoral vote in spite of it.
When the legislature convened in Jan
uary , 1877 , tlio presidential contest was
at HP height in Washington. Church
Howe had changed places from the honso
to the sonata. Early in the session , a
resolution was introduced expressing tlio
conviction on the part of "the senates that
Hayes and Wheeler having received a
majority of the electoral votes were entitled -
titled to their seats. This resolution
gave rise to a very lively debate which
lasted two days. Church Howe asked to
bo excused from voting when it lirst
came up and was so excused. On tlio
final passage of the resolution the record
[ page ! 570 , Senate Journal 1877.J shows
the following results Yeas Ambrose ,

Those voting in the negative were ;
A'ton , Brown , Covcll , Ferguson , Hinmnn ,
Holt , Church llowo and North 8.
During the same session of the legisla
ture , Church llowo's vote on United
States senator for the first three ballots ii
recorded ns haying boon cast for E. W.
Thomas , a South Carolina democrat ,
[ pages l'J3 and 208 Senate. Journal. ] All
tills time Church llowo professed to bo a
republican independent , republican on
nation al issues and a temperance granger
on local issues. Wo simply ask \vhnt
right a man with such a record has to
the support of any republican.

and you have an extraordinarily com
pressed nu'air gotten npevhlontly to show
how little breadth there can bo to : i
thing nnd thing bo yet a bonnet. As
an addenda upon the narrow top , imag
ine a still narrower and hltrli rising tuft
of trimming , and a largo quota of fa. ii-
ionablo millinery rises before your vision.
One can Imagine also , how little of b > -
comingness there is likely to bo in such
highly condensed specimens of ait and
while chubby faces have certainly the
worst of il , yet the contour of a physiog
nomy lacking breadth , but surmounted
by an arrangement which adds perpendic
ular lines where horizontal curves tire ro-
cpiiMto , isscarco more attractive than the
face of an apple cheeked damsel sot olV
by ornamentations grotesquely unsuita
ble. Thus nobody will bo stilted or
rather perhaps scarce anybody ami many
who are young onotigh will take refuge
in hats which are in unusual variety ami
shape for the winter season. But whllo
in bonnet * there are lead
ing characteristics , such ns notable
narrowness and increased length at
the back yet there is irreat variety as to
smaller linNlmijrs. Some have fanciful
scalloped edges set round with beads ;
others show three wide scallops ever the.
forehead , filled in with trimming , etc. ,
while modes and materials for garniture

tlio many ways in which the same tlijug
can be donoj that supreme thing being
a high tufted effect whether brought
about by ribbons , ( velvet or gros grain
with fancy edge ) velvet or plush on the

are employed to tlnisli with braid , the
coats , lapels , pockets and collars that
are particularly esteemed because mas
culine hands have cut them. Continue
out this train ot thongnt by the vest ,
choking neckband , duda collar of linen
and tie. to say nothing of suits bespread
by military irimps and cords sot on in
soldier-like style , and your modern belle
presents a figure where womanly graces
are purposely and much to her satisfac
tion counted out. Tlie bustle oxeoptod.
That lives and llonrishos. and though
strictly speaking , not indeed a "womanly
grace/ ' yet certainly an appendage
pre-eminently and prominently important
in womanly attire. A irreat
deal ot thought is given to it. Dillerent
costumes require , of t-ourso , dill'eront
bustles ; they clog the fashionable wom
an's putting awav receptacles , keep ono
turning around perpetually before full
length mirrors to see if they lit , and
bring about a consumption of plus to fasten -
ton thorn in place. The pins tear liolis
in delicate underwear , but Iho CUIIHO of
all this .uid a great deal moro mischief is
still cherished with pride. For costumes
in general long draperies continue tlio 1
rule ; basques very short at tlie sides ,
pointed in front and usually from com
pliment to tlio bustle , with postillion
back ; collars high and sleeves with plain
dresses always plain. For evening
there arc , of course , many bounti
ful elaborations , l ow nook dresses
with very short sleeves , or really none ,
are still worn , but the square cut or
pointed are too essential to become un
fashionable. Trains are full and long ,
with rounded corners in Martha Wash
ington style , but as hitherto are optional
and relegated chhiolly to matrons. Peasant -
ant waists are a pretty fashion , a service
able ono , and will bo yorv popular.
If bustles arc dear , so likcwisa are
beads. The average "woman dotes on
them and covers herself with them. She
buys ready made or makes fpr herself ,
plastrons , collars , cuffs , independent
ormimentK .set hither ami thither , entire.
fronts and side panels. Fringes made
of thorn are headed by chenille galoous
and velvet bands whereon glitter curi
ously constructed bead finishings , while
buttons arc made often as closely as
possible to lusomblo beads , both by the
gliltor of the jet , the milder clew of
highly polished wood , or whom the crochet
button i.s bestrewn by jot scintillations.
The rage for vests nas brought small
buttons to Iho front In moro senses than
ono , some bolng buttoned on both
sides with corresponding ornamenta
tion on slcove.s. poekets and pos
tillion backs. The mammoth buttons
of last year nro decidedly of last year at
least so far as drci-sus go. Tifis is suf
ficient condemnation but they never were
peed style , and thus their pxodus has
boon hastened nnd their relegation to
obscurity will be the moro complete. All
buttons however arc not small and deal-
on * show three sizes , ono quite smnll for
waists , next for jackets and largest for
skirts. Military cords and gimps as
savoring of Iho masculine are in high
vogue and in warlike looking braids set
in intricate patterns , the largest designs
are almost n foot in breadth and com
posed of nearly inch wide braid. Pause-
