Harvard' * Annlvcrnnry
To-day the litllo oily of
Mass. , whoso chief pride and honor is
the fact that it Is the scat of Harvard uni
versity , is thronged by the alumni of the
college and the distinguished giifst * \\lio
\vill participate to-morrow in the 2SOlh
anniversary of the founding of Harvard.
The cvontis one of far-reaching interest ,
for till over t'io ' land there are men to
whom it will bring cherished memories ,
while to all people who have any concern
for the cause and piojrrcss of education
in this country it will suggest interesting
and instructive reileclions regarding the
vast work and inestimable service that
Harvard has performed. It Is the oldest
of American college , and dottbtlesi do-
iorvcs to bo credited with having done
more for thn cause of education than any
other of our chief institutions of learn
ing. Certainly it can bo claimed for It
that It is not second to any other in the
character of the educators it has sent out
to enlighten the world and extern ! the
principles and precepts which they there
acquired , and equally does it take a fore
most rank with rcipcot lo llio number ,
wortli and tnihtotico of the men whom It
lias given to the professions , to science
and art , to religion , and to politics. It
is a great and grand army of which Har
vard is the alma mater.
It Is to bo said also of Harvard that it
is distinguished in having been the most
progressive of the great American col
leges. It has boon remarked that it is
the youth of Harvard even more than its
ago which makes the coming rolobratiou
an event of national importance. It has
not hesitated to push out in directions
which the traditional conservatism of
the other colleges shunned , and to under
take experiments whleh they had not the
courage to venture , for the most part
with results that justified the action. In
ono important respect it lias set a great
example in becoming avowedly and
actually non-sectarian , while the results
of its policy of elective ro-o.irch have
been so satisfactory that other colleges
are falling into line , giving promise that
in a few years this system will have be
come general. Another distinctive char
acteristic of Harvard is its popular form
of government. Every alumnus of the
academic department becomes , on gain
ing years ot discretion , a factor in the
governing machinery of the university , a
policy which is not favorable to fossiliza-
tion. Still another claim In behalf of
Harvard is the fact that it has never had
recourse to any questionable expe
dients to increase its apparent pros
perity , but in its business management
has always adhered to the highest stand
ards. There was recently some sharp
criticism of tlio class distinctions per
mitted and the favor shown or tlio tolera
tion given to aristocratic pretension and
lavish expenditure among the students ,
but it was sullicieut to call attention to
these faults to have them corrected.
To-morrow the achievements and the
glory of Harvard , which are so much a
part of all that has been accomplished
in this land m the cause of education ,
will be told by orator and poet , and
surely their gilts could not bo moro
worthily employed. Harvard merits all
Iho praise and honor that can be given it.
l < nck of Prensiirc.
Friday evening's hro wa burning vig
orously before tlio water mains tnct tlio
demands of the occasion. At tlio very
outset there was the old complaint of
"lack of pressure. ' ' Fifteen minutes of
precious time was lost before tlio pres
sure was "at full head. " Then the other
extreme was reached in burstcd hose.
The deficiencies of Iho diroet pressure
system wore never more clearly shown.
Omaha defeated the Holly job through
the bitter light made by this paper and
saved herself nearly half a million of
dollars on the contract for the express
purpose of securing reservoir pressure.
Gravitation is called for by our present
contract and an equalized and steady
pressure from water stored on the hills
overlooking the city. From the begin
ning this city lias been given a direct
pressure system. We have been made
dependent upon the pumus on the bottom
rather than on the reservoirs on the hill.
The results are known to allj muddy
water for domcatie use , enormous plumb
ing bills , broken connections nuii.
burstcd mains , trouble at fires
ami general dissatisfaction. It is
J > ! gh time that the water works com
pany should bo made to comply with the
ordinance under which they operate.
They have steadily and persistently violated
lated their contract with the city.
Promises nro no longer par.
Onwliu demands compliance with the
contract. Another main must bo built to
the reservoir. The ridiculous farce ot
pretending to pump water into the btor-
ago reservoir and to distribute It from the
reservoir through tnc same pipe has beqa
pltiyod long enough.
Cracking the Boseg' Whip ,
Dr. George L. Miller , whoso fidelity to
tlio interests of great corporate monopo
lies has boon the condition of his Ilium *
clal success , fools called upon to read the
riot act to prospective democratic members <
bors of tlio Nebraska legislature. He
warns the faithful that nnydemocrat whc
refuses to throw away his vote by sticking
to a democratic candidate for sonatoi
will bo politically ostracised. Chagrined
by the defeat of his old corporation pal
Church Howe , ho fumes and froths aboul
"foul consplracicn" to elont John A. Mo
Shane and hints at "rceimt sales" am1
"meditated treasons , " while ho cracks
the whip of the political bos.s ovoi
the heads of his party associates ,
"Domocratio fidelity" of which Jaj
Gould's biographer and flatterer talks EC
glibly on papnr nnd practices when II
falls into line with his own interests ami
that of the. corporations whioh he hai
served for years , will not prevent a mini
bor of honest democrats from casting
their votes thin winter for Charles H. Var
Wyck. At least twenty democratic members
bors elected against notorious monopoly
tools owe their election to friends of Senator
ator Van \Vyck both in nnd out of the
democratic party. Many of them won
nominated by conventions iu which Gen
crul Van Wyok was named as the ropub
Mean choice nf the delegates assembler
and in which the candidates noiuinatci
pledged thomsolve ? to vote for him Ir
case the election of a domocratio sonatoi
could not be secured. There is about a :
much chance of the election of a demo
cralio senator as there is of Or. Miller securing
curing a * eat in ( Jloveland's cabinet. Tin
democratic inombers of the legislature
numbering less than u third of the tola
membership , will decline-to act ns cat a
paws for the monopolies- aiding iu tin
defeat of Van Wyck nnd the election of n
railroad republican. Dr. Miller may note
Clinnslnjj the GnrrUon * .
The imnending arrival of the Highlit In
fantry , Colonel Kant/ commanding , has
compelled n reorganization of the garri
sons in the department of the Plattc.
Ten additional companies of troops are
lo bo placed where they will do the most
good nnd various changed arc inndo
necessary in consequence. 1'ollowing
out General Crook's old-time policy ,
which has since been made the policy of
the war department nnd of General Sheri
dan , the troops will bo concentrated as
i.ir as possible at largo posts on lines of
railway and adjacent to the strategic
positions in the dciurtmcnt. The con
rcntratlon of the Sixth infantry at Camp
Douglas mouths ago , made that garrison
ono of the few at which tin entire regi
ment is stationed. Within a few weeks ,
Fort Omaha will follow with the entire
command of the Second infantry , located
ut the barrack ? , and Colonel AVhealon
will have his ontlro olllclal family
around him , ten companies strong. The
increased garrisons resulting from the
accession of Iroons , will bo Omaha , Nio-
brara and Robinson. The Niobrara is
made the headquarters of the Eighth
infantry , and six companies of
that regiment will bo added
to the throe troops of cavalry
now stationed thero. Fort Robinson will
have Iho garrison increased from four to
seven companies as soon as now quarters
can he built for the men. An earnest ef
fort will bo made by our congressional
delegation at the coming session tosccuro
tlio pa xago of Senator Mandorson's bill
appropriating funds for now quarters and
barracks at FerN Robinson and Niobrara.
Should this bo accoinnlishcd each will
doubtless bo made u regimental post , in
accordance with the expressed wishes of
the war department. The policy of con
centration of troops in largo garrisons is
dictated by considerations of economy ind
availability in case of a demand for their
services. The three garrisons named are
all immcdiatol } ' adjacent lo lines of rail
road. One of them , Fort Robinson , is
directly on the railroad. There are no
long hauls by wagon , causing expensive
maintenance of troops and a largo quar
termaster's train. In case of outbreak
nearly three regiments could bo hm'riod
at a moment's notice to the scene of
Aa to Prohibition.
The fatal mistake of a rcmiblican con
vention in yielding to the pressure of im
practical fanatics is shown by a greatly
decreased republican vote throughout
the state. There is scarcely a county
whore republican losses cannot be di
rectly traced to this act of republican
folly. An increase of from thirteen to
fifteen votes in the democratic strength
of the legislature is also chiofiy duo to
this one cause. The foreign born voting
clement were incensed at a * threatened
invasion of their rights. Several thou
sand conservative republicans wore
alarmed at a menace to the material in
terests of the state , and either
secretly voted for the demo
cratic nominees or remained away
from the polls. Had the danger of the
submission of n prohibitory amendment
been generally considered as hnucndfng ,
the revolt would have boon even moro
The republican party gave Nebraska
its high license law with the features of
local option and school maintenance.
The same political organization placed
on our statute books the law makimg

two laws are as stringent in their prohib

Georgia is now operating. Tnere

whatever tlio sentiment , where a judge

of a violation of the damage law if tlio of
fense is brought to their attention.
Under such circumstances Statutory
prohibition , which al' ' c-xporienco has
proved to ba impossible of general en
forcement , would boa criminal blunder.
Leaving out of the discussion the damage
lo party , the loss of property interests ,
tlio dangerous invasion of individual
rights , it would bo substilutlnt ; a dead
letter for a living reality. Many republi
cans see this. The democratic party are
pledged against it. Hoth combined wlli

A Blguiflontit Story.
Our telegraph columns yesterday morn
ing contained a special dispatoh from
New York giving an extract from
a Now York Jltmld article in
which the presence of Mr , IHninc ii :
Now York and some peculiar move'
ments of the proprietor nnd managing
editor of the Times of that city , Mr
George Jones and Mr. John Hold , wen
associated as giving color to a report tlin
eflorts had been made to cfiuct n recoil
ciliation between Iho Maine slalcsmai
and the loading mugwump journal of the
country. Although such a report will up
pear incredible to those who are at ul
familiar with the long and bitter untip <
alhy of Iho Times under its present man
ngomcnt to Air. Itlaino , it is possible tc
regard it as not ontiroh without plans !
bility.Vo \ are not anfllciontly familial
with the cause of this hostility to staler
with unquestionable accuracy , but it an-
tedales Iho national republican convon
lion of 1870 and IKU since been persist
ently maintained. One of the most potoni
forces opposing Mr , Hlalno at Cincinnati
in 1870 , where ho received from Col ,
Ingorsoll the title of "Plumed Knight,1
was the antagonism of tlio Now York
Tinits , licforo the convention , when the
prospects of lllulno seemed more thar
brilliant , that paper notified the rcpnbll
can party , with which It was then in fnl
accord , that If he wore nominated I
would oppose his election regardless o
whom the democrats placed in nomina
lion , To emphasize lids antagonism Mr
George Jones appeared in person at Cm
cinnati and made every possible muni
festation of his hostility to Blaine
Again in 1680 the Times renewed its warfare
faro upon the gentleman from Maine
though perhaps leas conspicuously than
before , yet not without effect , while iti
course iu 1884 , in repudiating his nouii
to indicate Iho significance of a reconcil
iation , if that has realjyjiecu sought and
shall lie effected , wliotlcr , the overture
thereto comes from The Titiits people or
from Mr. Hlalno. Tno first suggestion
that gives a Dl.iiislbifity to the story is the
probability that the \ Tics \ managomenl
have grown tired of. , their unenviable ,
and doubtless tinpixJlltable , attitude as
the chief exponents of1 mugwiimplsiu.
It Is not que tionabl6 that iu abandoning
llielr republican allegiance they made a
very considerable pecuniary sacrifice ,
and it is more than probable that it
has been continuous. It practically
left the entire field of metro
politan republican journalism
to the Tribune , nnd the opportunity was
improved by tliu latter paper greatly lo
its financial advantage. There Is reason
to believe that the Tribune never before
enjoyed as great a degree of prosperity
as II has had during the pa t l\v < > years ,
and is now having in increasing volume ,
a part of which the Times management
understand is their loss. Another and
far moro interesting suggestion is tjie
probable fact that Iho political foresight
of the Times discerns Ihc strong promise
of a restoration of the government to re
publican control two years hence , in
whleh event it would bo at a still greater
disadvantage if still out of favor with
that party. A forcible indication of n
desire lo return to in former allegiance
appeared in its great activity and zeal In
supporting Hooscvelt for mayor , In thn
course of which it was of necessity com
pelled to proclaim republican views.
Possibly if tlio rcnomlnation and reelection
tion of Cleveland were reasonably as
sured , tlio Times would feel constrained
to continue- tlio course it has pitr.-ucit
for the past two years , but it sees that the
probabilily of cither of the o ovcnls lak-
Ing place is steadily growing less , while
widespread democratic dlsallection , dem
onstrated in the results of the late election ,
menaces the party with disaster in the
next national campaign. In that ease ,
standing where it now stahds , it would
necessarily share in the ashes of defeat.
It shrewdly prefers to put itself iu posi
tion to partake of the fruits of victory.
Hut why de.stre , as a prerequisite to a
return to its former allegiance , a recon
ciliation with the man it has so long ami
so relentlessly fought ? Is it to be in
ferred that Ihe Times regards Mr. Hlaino
as Hie coming man , against whoso
strength and popularity it will bo useless
to longer battle' 'Not ' necessarily. It
may not deem him to bo even a possi
bility , but as a rceo iiiii d party leader
it is obviously necessary to be al peace
with him as a con.ditip'n to complete
allegiance. Thn Thnts , cannot retract
all that it has said in Iho pasl leu years
in condemnation of Mr. Blaine , but it
can lot him alone , arid Inis is probably
all the cousi Jeralion' ' lie Vould require of
it. Unq uestionably'lhe panaRing editor
of llio Times , who islumped , in llio dis
patch , and the men who write its politi
cal opinions , are In their political sympa
thies and afiilintions republicans , audit
is not unlikely Unit ? tlujy have grown
weary of solf-slultificalion. It would bo
gratifying to. liud tho/2 ; H < v ! buck in line
as a straightforward exponent of rcmib-
hcan principles , aud it would bo a good
thing for that very excellent newspaper.
A Hint from OoFoc.
Mr. Howe is reported as remarking
that the only balm for his harrowed feel
ings is the failure of the editor of the HUE
to secure a seat in the legislaluro. Mr.
Howe is suffering from a bad attack of
political paralysis , and a kindly charity
should throw n veil over his tortures. If
the defeat of the editor of this paper alle
viates them ho is welcome to the prescrip
tion. It will doubtless still further grat
ify him to know that the persistent atten
tion bestowed by Itoscxrator on Ciinrch
Howe's candidacy ws ; rcslon3iui0 solely
for his on lailuro to secmo an election.
The defeat of ono was needed lo purge
Nebraska republicanism. The election
of the other was a matter of trilling
importance compared with it.
There are no shafts rankling iu the
breast of Iho editor of this pupor Locaiiso
lie failed of an election ir. a contest which
buried the republican candidate for con
gress , lost Ucnoral Thayer this county by
eighty votes , and defeated nearly a half
ot the legislative ticket. IIo recognized
fully the uncertainty of the. result before
he entered the canvass , and the outcome
was not surprising. The editor of an in
fluential journal necessarily makes many
personal enemies , and an election brings
them out. It was Daniel DeFoe who m
Iho olden lime incisively remarked :
"If I might give a short hint
to an impartial writer It would be to loll
him his falo. If ho resolved to venture
upon the dangerous precipice of lolling
unbiased truth , let him proclaim war
upon mankind neither to give nor lo
lake quarter. If ho tolls the crimes of
groal men they fall upon him with the
iron ImmU of the law ; if ho tolls them
of virlucs. when they have any , llion the
mob attack him with idandor. Hut if ho
regards trulh lot him expect martyrdom
on both sides , and thun ho may go on

THE method of counting votes In Omaha Is

of compensation , however , for these blun
ders of piofusslonal club management
there .stand out in bold relief not only the
record of the splendid exhibition of Hold
ing skill in the champjonshlp contest of
tins .season , together with striking exam
ples of first-class management of club-
teams , but above all a thorough record
for integrity of ilay in the rinks of nil
the professional clubs , north , onst nnd
west of the Southern League district ,
which fully balances all the minor draw
backs of tlit ) past season's caiiipaigns
above referred to ; lor while the preserva
tion of honest play among the tratornity
is the very foundation of the Mieco < s-
ful existence of the whole profess
ional structure , the mistakes of judg
ment in club management only alluets tno
financial prosperity of the organisations
immediately concerned. The only draw
back to a ercditab'o record of the whole
base ball campaign of 1S8G is that a min
ority of the clubs of the Southern longuo
failed to follow the lead of the Northern
longuo in barring out that curse of all
sports , noil-selling and pool-gambling.
A costly lesson haw been taught to them ,
however , in the form of a financial dis
aster , ami next year they will doubtless
profit by it.
One result of the final scries of the
championship games of the season ,
played at Chicago and St. Louis in Octo
ber , between the League club of Chicago ,
mid tlio American club of St. Louis , was
that the vietory scored by the St. Louis
club gave the lie to thoslauderonr charge
of "hippodoniing" made by the gamblers
of the two cities. The absurdity ot the
charge was shown in the fact that the
gate receipts of the series of six games
went to the winning club , leaving out the
risk involved in the loss of a single game ,
The Chicago defeat of the St. Louis club
in the lir-il game of the seriei was easily
to bo accounted for , on the basis not only
of that club's playing on the Chicago
club's grounds , but also from their nervous -
vous anxiety to win. As for the signal de
feat unstained by llio Chicago club the
next day , that was so plainly duo ( the
weak exhibition of witchi by iMcCot-
miok ns to i ; ; * no surprise to those well
posted in base ball matters , his weak
ness being due to his over indulgence in
drinking since the close of Iho regular
campaign , The contest may have lioen
saiii to bo the turning point of the sorlc.s ,
inasmuch as after such a victory the visi
tors were umpired With a degree of con
fidence in thuir ability lo win on their
homo grounds at St. Louis , which
