A Strange Fatality.
There is a strange fatality In the career
of the Oninhrt .flcpublican. Twenty years
ago , just as Nebraska entered the sister-
1100(1 of states , that paper was the leal-
lug daily of this section. It was a recog
nized factor In the political afldrs of the
state , prosperous and potentitl. Then
came a change of proprietors , followed
by a succession of reverses brought on by
stupid blunders , dishonest management ,
en(1 disreputable journalistic mt thods.
From a ptying : property the concern
became a greatsink-holu , into which sverc
dumped fortunes aggregating hundreds
of tilotilandS of dollars. In the lirst , six
years after the Jliu : was established over
160,000 were sunk In a desperate but
fruitless eflbrt to smother a little sheet
that had no capital to back it and the
most powerful political and financial
combinations to oppose it. Then the
syndicate that came Into its control da-
terrnineL to rejuvenate anti by a con-
bined effort all along the hue to raise it
to the old btandard of party leadership.
New editors were placed at the helm and
nil the available artillery of slander and
defamation belched forth against the
liEn nut ! its edItor from every federal office -
fice stronghold and from Union Pacific
headquarters , Levies vero made upon
customs oflicers , land oflice receivers anti
Postmasters , and enormous contributions
poured In from the surveying ring organized -
ganized tinder the old Boss Cunninglian :
regime. To reduce expenses , the editors
of the Republican were put on the
Union Pacihic pay-roll , and the bulk of
job patronage which that corporation
had at its ( iiHIosaI % VItS throw : : into the
bottomless Pit. But the fatality which
had become part of its career , continued
toblast all cfThrts to give the paper in-
Iluenco and popular confidence , Then
citnie another change. A smart young
ir.an , with a smattering of dime-noyci
literature and an ambition to illumine tlio
political sky with his tallow tilp
genius , induced his fattier to
purchase a half interest , whieli placed bun
in editorial charge. Follosiiig in the
old ruts of the fated fools who hatt preceded -
coded : liiin , he devoted himself earnestly
flhtI zealously to the same old task of
tearing down every thing The Ban
had helped to build up , opposing
every POlICY it at1rocated , and
filling all available space with dis.
gusting slaitIots and bare faced falsehoods -
hoods concerning the editor of the han.
Again a clutugo of ProPrietors took
place , and again the i1l.fated lkpublicw :
has been rojuvenatod. The prospectus
was , if anything , more bombastic than
any that had been promulgated since the
days of the mtminotl : consoliintion. Thu
new management entered thu hold with a

had decided to turn over a now

which was to ho in striking contrast with
the sad and gloomy past. But the fatality -
ity which clings to the ilhstarred shoot is
morn manifest now than ever. The
paper has not only proved a lint failure ,
by a lamentable lack of all that is esson-
tint in the make-up of ft metropolitan
daily , but it has absolutely gone from
bad to worse editorially The editor-in-

detection and prosecution of polygamists -
mists , together with the destruction of
the civil power of the Mormon church of
Utah , is the strongest section of tim new
measure. Under the Edmunds law of
1882 touchIng the iniquity of claimed
saints and undoubted sinners in that be-
nighited land , together with the fearless
enforcement of the law on the part of
judges and other ohlicials , It has beezi be-
. hewed that a solution of the Mormon
question was almost reached. By many
men this question has been regarded as
: serious and dangerous. And it Is trite
that religious fanaticism ritakes dangerous

knew that strict legislation was ucces-
enry. A fearless administration of the
law has rendered powerless the oligarchy

unknown places. Alarm has taken the
place of arrogance antI threats. Under
the present law the country otti : look for
a now revelation renouncing nil former
visions and remanding their rnisgtildotl
followers to truth and decency , The be.
hovers of the Mormon faith arc by no
means lost. They have only been

Mit. Knox and Mr. Garvey arc to be coil-
aratulatid : upon theirabhlity to write tumor-
ity reports. 'l'liey don't mince matters and
arc not afraid to oxuress thetis convictions.-
( Jarvey and Knox hind no more to do
with writing that minority report than
they had with writing the governor's
message. Their report bears on its
face the oar marks of Vandervoort ,
and the conspirators who have bargained
with the Omaha contractors' gang to mutilate -
tilato the charter , Garvey anu Knox vero
too full for utterance on the very night
when their report was being propai-ed ,
but even if they hind been strictly sober
they are not competent to write
such a report. In signing it they
have given themselves away.
The pull which they bestow
upon the committee on judiciary , whose
chairman is playing monkey for the oil
room gang , is in itself the host Proof of
its origin. Tim pity is that a respectable
and decent old man like Mr. Knox should
become a victim to the crafty cappers of
the railroad lobby.
A Period of SociaL Rest.
One of the Inippy results of the final
atijoureniout of congress is the relief it
brings to society \rasIkitlgtofl. . 1)uring
the session social life at the national capital -
ital is a continual strain. ft makes an
exacting denianti uponthe physicalforces
of those who are coinpellcti to regard its
requirements , atid to many it Is a great
drain UOfl fiiiancial resources which is
most grudgingly borne. It is probably
not wholly beneficial in its moral inilti-
encos , though in this respect perhaps no
worse thitui : social life elsewhere whiehi
involves similar okeessos and terms of
dissipation : ihit the peculiarity of this
life at the natiutial capital which renders
it especially burdensome is the fact that
it is a continual conilict. Nowhere else
is the spirIt of rivalry so strong , and nowhere -
where else do loud ilisplu..y and all the opposites -
posites to simplicity and moderation

Tue present winter has not fallen behind -
hind any preceding season during the
short session of congress in the number
or brilliancy of the social events in Washington -
ington The apprehension that society
miuight be disturbed by sotuo innovations
on the part of Mrs. Cleveland was not
realized , Thu president's accomplished
wife scents to have shown most
admirable tact , wisely ncquies-
cing in the situation as site

that would have cast her more or less
annoyance anti not increased the nun-
ber of Ii r friouds. She found it necessary -
sary to modify her original programme

of the public , but this was comparatively
a non-essential. The important fact was
that the social status was not disturbed.
Consequcntl.y the season , so far us Mrs.
Cleveland Is concrrned , was entirely sue-
ccssful. and undoubtedly she stands as
well in public esteem as any lady who
has over graced the white house. Alead-
