THE president was caught in a pretty
demonstrative crowd in Chicago. Ilo
barely escaped with his dignity.
TUB latest name mentioned in connec
tion with the republican candidacy for
president is that of lion. Frank Ilucock ,
of New York. Ho , too , is a Rood man.
Tunic has been an Increase of about
GO per cent In the school attendance of
the southern states tins fall. This would
seem to indicate that some of them will
go republican in the near future.
TIIKHR was an increase in railroad
earnings during September over the pre
ceding months. Not considering the
matter of over-charges in rates , this is a
good indication of the revival of business
throughout the land.
TUB currency circulation of the coun
try was increased by $33,850,875 during
September. The not increase of cash in
the treasury was over $7,000,000. The
good effects of liberated capital is already
felt in business centers.
IT is said that Georgn Francis Train
will start a uaper in Chicago devoted to
the progressive labor movement. Ilo
will no doubt be able to project some
picturesquoness into the labor campaign
if nothing inoro substantial.
A WOUAN iu St. Louis became so ex
cite ! by the presidential party that she
threw a pancake into Mrs. Cleveland's
lap. She has been arrested and is now
booked for farnu. In the excitement of
the moment she no doubt imagined her
self serving a regular boarder.
TUB Chicago papers fairly turned
themselves Inside out in their efforts at
display in welcoming President and Mrs.
Cleveland. The Acws printed greetings
of welcome to the august visitors in
every civill/.cd language of the globe.
They wore written in native characters
and followed by translations. This bit
of enterprise is quite unique.
Mil. CLBVKLAND is demurely informed
by the Chicago press , referring to his
npuech in St. Louis , that thorn might
have boon a rivalry as to size and pro-
grcssivcncss between the two cities in
the dim past , but that time is so far back
that the story of it seams like a mere
legend to the present generation. Chicago
cage shoulit not bo too boastful. The
time is coming when aha too will bo
passed in the race for supremacy by the
cities of the great west.
IT seems quite likely now that rail
road fares for passenger travel will bo
reduced in the west. The railroads them'
solves admit that the rates fixed by the
inter-state commission as "reasonable
and fair , " are too high. The roads are
finding that they restrict travel and con
sequently cut down the profits. Public
sentiment also clamors for a maxunun
two-cents-por-milo rate to which it will
in all probability bo reduced during tuu
THE National Farmers' alliance met it
Minneapolis this week and has already
adjourned. Nebraska was honored 11
having J. Uarrowa elected president , am
Iowa lu securing the mooting for Do :
Molnos next year. Otherwise very little
of importance seem * to have boon done ,
Considering the magnitude and importance <
tanco of western agriculture , those meet'
ings of the farmers should bo attended
with more decided results than now
BOOIUS to bo the aso. There are many
economic matters , outside the actual rals
ing of crops , which effect the agricultur
alists aud with which , by concerted ami
intelligent co-operation , they would be
capable of dealing.
WITH proper and adequate effort thor
is no good reason why Omaha may no
secure tlm national republican convon
lion next year. Thtro can bo no sub
stantiul objections urgud against this city
nnd much can bo said in its favor. Th
state , convention having passed :
resolution favoring Omaha as th
place for holding the convon
tlon will give weight to th
proposition. That expression should b
promptly supplemented by such actloi
on the part of our chamber of commerce
city council and republican organization
as will command the attention of tli
national committee. The matter la on
which can properly and judiciously b
qiven early consideration.
Tbo Ticket and the Platform.
The republican party of Nebraska
should bo well satislled with the work of
Its state convention. Tlioro wore care
fully planned and urgently pressed
schemes the success of which would have
placed the party in a false , and perhaps
perilous , position , but although it re
quired a long and arduous struggle , such
M happens very rarely in a convention
like that of Wednesday , to overcome
them , wiser counsels prevailed find they
were defeated. Wo have very little
doubt that upon the sober second thought
most of those who supported those pro
jects will see the mistake that would
have been made in their adoption and
will with all the more heartiness aud zeal
devote themselves to the duty
of securing the popular endorsement of
the convention's action.
The ticket will .receive the full support
of the party. The renomlnation of Judge
Maxwell was in response to the undoubted
wish of a largo majority of the rank and
file of the party , and was a just recogni
tion of long , honorable and useful ser
vice. It is not necessary to enlarge
upon his claims , so thoroughly are they
known and appreciated by the older citi
zens of Nebraska. For more than thirty
years ho has been under the public
scrutiny in positions of trust and grave
esponslbility , aud his record is without
blemish. Ills judicial career has pro
minently exemplified the highest stand-
rds of merit in that capacity , fur-
ishlng an example of integrity ,
mpartiality and industry which will exert
ts influence upon the judiciary of the
tare long after the learned and dis-
Inguishcd jurist shall have retired from
ho arena of this world's labors. The
haracter , experience and acquirements
) f Judge Maxwell all commend him to
topular support , and ho will bo re-elect-
d by an undimmished majority. The
andidatcs for regents of the university ,
Dr. B. B. Uavls , of McCook , and Dr.
icorgo Roberts , of Knox county , are
gonilomon fully qualified for the position.
The former is a graduate of the Univer-
ilty of Nebraska , and the latter of the
medical department of the University of
. 'onnsylvania. Uoth are scholarly , men ,
tvho have always taken an earnest inter
est in educational affairs , and they
will undoubtedly be valuable accessories
o the board of regents.
Thn platform takes a position regard-
ng the railways which every citizen con
cerned for the welfare of the state will
approve. Ou the subject of the tariff it
hews un advance in declaring that the
business of the country demands a rovt-
ion and that the republican party will
ice that such revision shall be made at
ho earliest practicable day. The just
loniands of the soldiers to generous
rcatmcnt from the government arc roo-
ognizcd , Ireland's hopes arc encouraged ,
and the omissions anil faults of tlm de
mocracy receive adequate attention.
The proposition for an extra ses
sion of the legislature , which
s the source of a prolonged
and very heated discussion , failed
chiefly for the reason that there was a
majority who had no faith in the present
legislators and believed that If called to
gether they would accomplish nothing.
The prohibition firebrand was temporarily
rily smothered and will not bo a cause of
listurbanco in the present campaign.
Having an entirely acceptable ticket
and a platform which all Nebraska re
publicans can approve , there docs not
appear to bo any reason why the partv
should not move forward to au over
A. I'linKOiit Arraignment.
There has been nothing in recent polit
ical literature better deserving of atten
tion from those interested in such litera
ture than the address just issued by the
independent democrats of Maryland ,
It is in more respects than one , namely ,
that of being a most scathing arraign
ment of the democratic machine iu that
state , a quite remarkable document. It
is admirable in its style , in its perspoou-
ous setting forth of the charges against
the regular democracy , and in its vigor
ous directness and fearless characteriza
tions. It mercilessly lays bare the policy
and record of the democratic
party in Maryland under the
leadership of Gorman and his asso
ciates , and a most deplorable presentation
of political depravity it is ,
If ever there was justifiable
ground of revolt within u party the
independent democrats of Maryland
show most convincingly that they have it
Good citizens everywhere must fool
some interest in a struggle of this kind
carried on in the interest of fair politics
and honest government , oven if those tc
bo immediately boneiittod are the citi
zens of only a single stato. The rascality
that has boon carried on in Maryland , il
permitted to go unrobuked , might easily
become contagious and spread to othoi
slates. Germans may bo developed anywhere
whore if there is promise of the tolcratior
that will permit them to carry on tlieii
nefarious practices. Such examples a ;
that of the independent democrats ol
Maryland are therefore of more thar
local significance. Just as tin
punishment of boodlers in Nev
York and Chicago has had tin
effect of restraining others elsewhere
from similar practices , so this revolt
oven if it shall not result in the defeat o
the corrupt machine , will bo n warning
which politicians of the Gorman strip *
everywhere will not wholly fail to hood
What really makes this matter one o
national importance , however , is tin
position of the administration , whlct
thus far appears to bo in sympathy will
the men against whom the revolt i
made. The ability of Gorman to carr ;
out his plans and maintain his power ha :
been in no small degree duo to the aid hi
has received from federal ouloials , extended
tended in bold and defiant violation o
the president' . * civil service order. This
the administration has been mad
fully aware of , but it has no
even indicated its disapproval u
the conduct of these men , some of when
are doubtless now industriously practlc
ing "pernicious activity. " The cours
which the president should pursue to b
consistent would promptly destroy hal
the power of the debased and corrup
machine in Maryland , but ho has tlm
far boon deaf to the numerous appeal
that have boon made to him to take tha
course. Ho probably will not take it

INVESTIGATIONS just made by a com
nilttco of the Massachusetts logUlatun
Into the condition of child labor in tha
stale have developed some v"Bry deplora
ble facts. At Fall River , especially , th *
evils resulting from the nearly unre
stricted employment of this labor wore
particularly conspicuous. Great num
bers of children were found in the mills
who could not read and write , and the
proportion of Illiterate children In Fall
River was greater than in any other city ,
though it was much too largo in some
others. One witness stated to the com
mittee that ho know many children wore
employed in the mills on certificates ob
tained through faj9 ! statements made
by their parents. The oageraes ? of
parents to make their children
Wrtgo earners , and the anxiety
of employers to got cheap
labor , unite to defeat the law nnd to de
prive the little ones of obtaining any ed
ucation. This experience is not new , nor
is it confined to Massachusetts. Other
Sow England states could show a slml-
ar , If not quite so bad , a state of things ,
, nd the efforts that have been made to
cmcdy it do not appear to have effected
ny improvement. On the contrary tbo
videnco from Massachusetts Is that the
vll is growing. And yet it must not bo
lonfessod that a remedy is impossible ,
lomo practicable and adequate way
iught to bo found to prevent an annual
ncrcoso of illiteracy in a section of the
ountry whore all the means of education
.re most abundant and whore the laws
an bo readily enforced. Some
other Interesting facts wcro brought out
i.y this investigation , among them that
he number of women and children cm-
ilpyed in textile industries is steadily iu-
roaslng , and that men without children
were being constantly thrown out of em
ployment to give place to those having
horn , that the labor of their children
might bo secured. The eagerness of
hcso well protected manufacturers to
jet cheap labor is very suggestive.
TUB prospect that Mills , of Texas , will
bo made chairman of the committee on
ways and moans of the next house of rep
resentatives is not universally regarded
as the wisest thing that could happen for
the democracy. If no injustice is done
Mr. Mills , ho would bo very likely to be
come a source of serious trouble its the
ostensible leader of the democratic forces
on the floor of the house. An eastern
contemporary , which speaks with a dofl-
nitcncss that conveys an assurance of ac
curate information , describes the Texas
congressman as "a man of cruel temper ,
of unreasoning obstinacy , with no power
of control , " whosn selection would put a
practical end to any real hope of legisla
tion. Surely a man with such quali
ties cannot safely bo trusted with
the functions of leadership , par
ticularly in an exigency that will call for
great moderation , wisdom and discre
tion. But Mr. Mills is in the line of pro
motion , and if he is such a man as hois de
scribed will bo very likely to vigorously
insist upon a recognition of his rights.
There is a chance that Mr. Carlisle , as
suming that ho will bo re-elected speaker ,
may find In this matter a somewhat disa
greeable dilemma , and that which over
way it is solved the democratic majority
in congress will have a cause of regret.
IT is unfortunate that the harmony of
the state republican convention was dis
turbed by the introduction of a proposi
tion to submit to the people at this time
a Drohibltory liquor amendment to the
constitution , but the republican party of
Nebraska is to bo congratulated upon the
fact that the movement was
not successful. In throwing this
question over to next year
time will bo given for its more thorough
and thoughtful discussion , from which it
may reasonably bo hoped to effect such a
change of opinion as will insure its be
ing excluded entirely as a political issuo.
It would obviously have been a most
