If Mr. Scott mndo any such statements It
will bo necessary to plnco him in the same
cntegory with Bomo other fool friends of
Judge ) Groff , who have been doing n fair
mnountof tnll lying In the snino direction.
The neimbllctin never said n word against
Judge OrofTw candidacy before the republi
can convention. Now that ho Is before the
people as a mugwump candidate , opposing
the republican ticket , ho is In nn entirely dif
ferent attitude , and wo shall oppose hli
election fairly nnd squarely , ns In the case of
till democrats nnd mugwumps who are en
deavoring to defeat the republican ticket.

forcing a case which Is still pending In the
courts Into the "dirty pool of politics , " and
they may rest assured of It that if this la to
bo the programme , the judicial erinlno prom
ises to get a llttlo dcopor in the "political
pool" than any other ofllco-sccklng toggery.
Wo cheerfully give Cadet Taylor the
benefit of his brazen denial. Threats
always have boon and arofow his chief
stock in trade. The Republican did not
and could not influence the action of
any convention. But Cadet Taylor
through the combine with that oflloo-
Booking monlmanlao Ballou nud Roust
about Estollo , exerted sufficient influ
ence to defeat Judge Groff's ' endorse
ment. This is so notorious that a denial
will simply brand the man who makes
it as an Impudent liar. Now why did
Taylor himself and the bummers nnd
roustabouts oppose Judge Groff's nomina
tion ? Is ho not ns competent as Han
cock , Estollo or Ballou ? Is" ho a man
ngalnst whoso character a word can bo
truthfully said ? Had ho not been a
loyal and staunch republican , nnd
proved his loyalty to his country by
carrying a musket for the union ? Was
not his defeat the carrying out of a
threat made soon after ho had grant
ed an injunction against Taylor &
Round's fraudulent and illegal
printing contract ? " Mr. Cadet Taylor is
very brash in serving notice on the
friends of Judge Groff that ho proposes
to drag the judge down into the mlro
in which ho himself has boon wallow
ing. Nobody is suprised at that. A man
who will send his attorney to threaten n
judge with political vengeance unless
ho compiles with his demands is capa
ble of any dirty work. Perhaps Mr.
Cadet Taylor will deny that his attorney -
tornoy , in doing this , acted upon his
authority , but attorneys are not in the
habit of commanding a judge to servo
tholr clients or take the coiif-uquonccs
of dihobedionco unless their clients in
spire or approve such bulldozing meth
The Imw AVill Stniul.
Senator Cullom , of Illinois , before de
parting for Washington , bnid ho did
not think there was the remotest chance
of a repeal of the inter-state commerce
law. There is not. The representa
tives of neither party in congress will
make bo serious a mistake ns to attempt
its repeal. There will undoubtedly bo
a strong pressure brought by the cor
porations , which would like to bo re
stored to their former privileges , and
to which the policy of regulation by the
people is extremely repugnant , against
the law. It is not unlikely that these
coporations will find a few men on the
floors of congress who will bo disposed
to advocate their cause. There nromem-
bors of both houses who still owe service
to the railroads , eome of whom maj
not bo unwilling to sacrifice their
political hopes to the moro profitable
present employment of the corporations.
But they will bo very largely in the
minority and powerless to accomplish
anything for the overthrow of the law.
There is no statute moro certain to re
main for all time a part of the public
law of the country , subject to such
amendment from time to time as ex
perience and changed conditions shall
suggest , than the inter-state commerce
law. Some changes will probably be
made by the next congress , but the
promibo is that these will not bo numer
ous or radical. Congress will bo guided
largely by the recommendations of the
commission , and Judge Cooley , its chair
man , has Tory recently said that il
would have few amendments to Bug-
gcbt. The absuranco contained in this
is that the body -created to exe
cute the law has found it to be
in the main sufficient to accomplish the
object of a proper and adequate regula
tion of railroad transportation botwcoi !
the states.
If all has not been accomplished thai
was expected or desired , there has ai
least been sufficient to establish the
soundness of the main principle of the
law , nnd to remove all doubt from minds
open to conviction regarding the prac-
ticabllity and the desirability of th (
regulation provided for. Despite the
combined efforts of the railroads t <
render the law odious to the public ant
to obstruct and embarrass its opcratior
a bold and systematic effort to nullify
a statute which clearly demonstrated
the desperate character of the powoi
with which the people wore contending
after six months of trial under gruai
disadvantages and some serious mis
takes the aggregate results of the work
ing of the law are seen to bo to th (
advantage of the people , and the galr
in that direction goes steadily on. The
hostile combinations formed when th (
law wunt'into effect , have been to a large
extent abandoned , and every step in the
disintegration of the power arrayed t <
defeat the just requirements of th <
statute has boon followed by a conces
slon to the public demands. A grca
deal yet remains to bo done before the
regulation sought to bo established

Undue discrimination is still practiced
ticod , unreasonable charges are stil
exacted , unjut-t preferences still pro
vnll. But those conditions ob
noxious to the law are less general
oral than they wore a few months agi
and are de'm-asing. The cori-onitioi'
themselves arc learning the folly am
futility of a resistance that must tor
tainly eventuate In defeat , and yioldin ;
to the Instinct of sclllbhncss , are one bj
ono refusing to bo longer bound by ob
llgatipns which bring them no pr'cson

Under such favoring circumstances ,
the people will tolerate bo interference
with th'o inter-state , commerce law
which will in the Icn&t detract
from its main principle and purpose or
diminish the authority it confers upon
the agents of the people to protect their
interests. Whatever changes it may
receive must rather ho to more strongly
fortify the principle and enlarge the au
thority to carry it into oflcct. It took
years of struggle against corporate in
fluence nnd wealth , unscrupulously and
lavishly used , to secure the law , nnd the
victory won by the people in its adoption -
tion established it as a. part of the public
policy which should bo permanent.
How the Election Will bo Conducted.
Mr. Andrew Bovins holds that the de
cision of the supreme court , which
wipes out the entire election law for
metropolitan cities , does not necessarily
affect the judges of election , who wore
appointed under the law before the
supreme court decision had boon ren
dered. In other words , Mr. Bovins
maintains that those judges , having
been appointed by the proper authorities
before the law was declared void , may
perform their functions at the election
just as If the law had been sustained by
the court. The BUB takes issue with
Mr. Bovins. While wo concede that
an election conducted under the provi
sions of the law before it was declared
unconstitutional would have been legal ,
wo do not believe that ofllcors of elec
tion , appointed under an unconstitu
tional law before an election have any
authority whatever to act after the law
lias been declared void by the high
est judicial tribunal. There being
now no special law governing elec
tions in metropolitan cities , the elec
tion in this city on the 8lh of Novem
ber must bo conducted under
the general election laws the same as
in any country procint. The county
commissioners will have to appoint the
judges of election , and if for any rea
sons these judges are not appointed , or
fail to qualify on election day , the voters
ers present at the opening of the polls
will elect the clerks and judges of elec
tion. Tneso officers will only bo gov
erned by the general election law. The
same law will govern as to tickets. In
stead of printing the state , judicial and
county tickets on separate ballots all the
ofllcors to bo voted for , from state down
to precinct , will bo on ono ticket. All
the proposed reforms in the methods of
canvass , which wore embodied in the
new law , are a dead letter. The regis
tration lists are also practically worth
less. The poll-bocks and return blanks
will have to bo furnished by the county
clerk , and the returns will have to bo
made to him as heretofore. This 5s our
version of the decision , and wo confi
dently believe it will bo sustained by the
best legal authorities.
The Machine "Wins.
The returns from the municipal elec
tion in Baltimore make it probable that
the regular democratic ticket has been
elected , though by a considerably re
duced majority. The reform democrats
and republicans charge that there was
fraud in many of the wards of the city ,
notwithstanding the very careful precautions -
cautions that wcro taken , and they pro
fess to hope that they will bo able tc
show this so conclusively astoyotdofeal
the machine. But there is very little
likelihood that they can do this. The
shrewd and unscrupulous politicians
who manage the machine have not failed
to count upon what might bo ex
pected if they wore success'
ful , and therefore undoubtedly cov
ered their tracks so thoroughly as tc
bo amply secure in their position. The
reform clement iniulo a gallant fight ,
and the result only servos to show how
difficult it is to dislodge a party thai
once gets a thorough grip on the polit
ical machine and has the skill and reck
lessness to manipulate it for all there it
in it. The reformers , however , have
not hauled down their flag , nor are
they hopeless. The battle for the stak
is btill to bo fought out , and they will
push the reform cause with increased
vigor to the end. But it seems clear
that in losing the first contest whore
their chances of victory seemed bosl
they are placed at a disadvantage , and
in the degree that they lese prestige bj
defeat in Baltimore the regulars will
gain it. There appears to be
a substantial ground of hope
before the Baltimore election that the
coalition of republicans and rofora
democrats in Maryland would win , bul
there is none now. There is hardly r
chance that the Gorman crowd will be
defeated , a promise which oven demo
crats every where who have regard foi

Address to the People of Hurt'Wash-
l Kton , DnuRln * and Sarpy
Counties. '
OMAHA , Oct. 27,1887. At a mooting
of oloclorsof thoThlrd.judlclat district ,
hold-on the 2. " > th lust. , ntul composed of
members of both political parties , the
undersigned were charged with the
duty of preparing nn address to the people
ple , setting forth the reasons which
have Induced them to support , at the
coming election , the judicial ticket on
which appear the names of Judges
Wnkoloy , GrofTHopowoll nnd Doano.
Impressed with thoHdanpcr of making
the judicial olllco n prize for the most
shrewd , the most active or the most
popular worker in party politics , and
fully realizing the fact that to bo both
impartial and independent , n judge
should bo free from the entanglements
arising out of partisan strife , tlio bar of
the district mot at the court house in
Omaha some days prior to the period
fixed for holding the judicial
nominating convention. At that moot
ing , which was absolutely non-partltan.
Judges Wakoloy , Groff and Uopowoll
( the first named being understood to bo
democratic in his views and the two
others republican ) were unanimously
recommended for re-election , and a
committee appointed to notify the nom
inating con volitions of this action. That
committee mot with a courteous recep
tion from the democratic convention ,
and tholr recommendation was adopted ,
Mr. W. A. Stow being selected for the
fourth place on the ticket.
In the republican convention , how
ever , a motion to receive the bar com
mittee was defeated , and a delegation
from the democratic convention sent to
notify the republicans of Its nominations
mot with no uottor fate. It is doubtful
if any political convention in the coun
try was over before guilty of such gross
The republican delegates nominated
thrco gentlemen , who , whatever their
qualifications may bo , have had no ex
perience on the bench , and some of
them but little nt the bar. Of the
fourth , as ho is on both tickets , it is un
necessary to speak.
Wo believe that all who have the wel
fare of this community nt heart , who
think that judges should bo above party
obligations and party bins , and above
all , should bo above pressing tholr own
claims in caucusscs , nominating con
ventions and political campaigns ,
will fool no hesitation in voting the
clean and independent ticket pre
sented by the bar. Judge Wakoloy has
boon known to the voters of this dis
trict for thirty years. His career both
at the bar and on the bench has boon
alike honorable to himself and of ben
efit to the community among whom ho
has dwelt. HO took the office in the
first instance only at the unanimous re
quest of the lawyers of the district nnd
by the appointment of a republican gov
ernor. Four years ago ho and Judge
Neville , a republican , wcro elected with
out contest by those whoboliovcd then as
wo believe now , that judicial elections
should bo free from partisanship. Mo
whisper of suspicion against his ability
has over boon breathed.
Judges Groff and Hopowoll have
served since the last session of the legis
lature. In that period they have be
come known throughout the district ,
have devoted themselves assiduously to
tholr duties and have shown themselves
clean , impartial and industriousofilcors ;
no fault being found with either of them
unless by litigants who may happen to
have been defeated in their courts.
The lamented death of Hon. W. A.
Stow rendered the selection of another
candidate in his place necessary ; and in
response to a very general expressed
wish by lawyers and others the Hon.
George W. Doano has been selected for
the fourth place on the ticket. Mr ,
Doano's entire professional life has been
spent in this district , and his legal cx-
porince of over thirty yearshis probity ,
his learning and industry are , wo feel
confident , sufficient guarantees that his
career on the bench will bo honorable
to him and satisfactory to the district.
It has boon Bald that were democrats
in a largo majority throughout the dis
trict they would nominate party men
mon and refuse to follow their action of
a few days ago. But wo suggest that
the proper qucstiou for us to ask our
selves is not what would our enemies or
opponents do in n given case ; but , what
is right ? what is the best interests of
the commonwealth ? what would the
purest and best men advise ? If voters
would ask themselves these questions
wo have no fear of the result.
That the ticket which wo advocate
will bo elected in the opinion of those
who are best informed in such matters
is almost a foregone conclusion. But wo
hope for something more than mere suc
cess. Wo hope for a response to our
appeal so general and so emphatic that
political wire pullers , strikers , caucus
lobbyists and all who seek to influence
votes by unfair or dishonest means
shall take warning that their machina
tions , if they are allowed to exist
nt all , must bo confined to
non-judicial offices ; and that the
people of the Third judicial
district are determined that tholr min
isters of justice shall bo , so far as their
votes can make them , of clean hands ,
broad and impartial views , of learning
and uprightness.WH.LIAM
The Plays at the Boyd and Grand
Opera House Lmwt Night.
Vernonu Jarbeau is not unknown In
Omaha , but her first appearance hero as a
star was made last night at the Boyd. She
was greeted by a largo and friendly audience.
She endeavored to prove herself worthy of
the reception , but the misfortune of a pain
ful hoarsncss deprived her of her greatest
'charm. The announcement of her coming
was coupled with the legend of "Thco Out
done. " Thco , however , has never appeared
in this city , and a comparison between tier
efforts and those of Jarbeau consequently
could bo inailo only by a small number of the
auditors. Miss Jarbcau , however , is nufll-
cicntly glftod to build up a reputation for
herself without endeavoring to destroy that
of another. To an excellent voice she ndds
the advantage of training which enables
her to satisfactorily render some of the
most delightful compositions , while her
manner has all the gaiety and abandon of the
Parisian. This she displays to advantage
only in her solos , where she departs from the
methods of the American soubrette , and In
dulges in the mannerisms which have not yet
been appropriated from Urn French stugq. . Iu
the routine work of the piny there Is little of
notable excellence In MissJarueau's work.
ThLi Is , perhaps , to bo attributed more to the
piece than to Urn lady's ' utillity , because

Know One Thing Well.
Youth's Companion : It has been re
marked that the farm ors who best suc
ceed iu this country are thobo who devote -
vote their chief attention to some ono
product which is favored by their
special soil and climate.
. There is a county in Now Jersey nnd
a town in Michigan where farmers
grow rich by raising a vegotijblo so un
important as celery. One region of
Long Island thrives upon asparagus ,
parts of Delaware upon peaches ; the
gulf states upon cotton ; Northern Ver
mont upon grass in its various forms of
milk , butter , cheese and boot ; northern
Now York upon potatoes transmitted
into starch ; Iowa upon corn condensed
into pork and whisky.
By concentrating his attention upon * )
single product or claws of products , and
that product favored by nature , the
farmer surpasses competitors in other
places. There is a world of secrets in
volved in the raising of a fine field of
cabbages. Try ono row of fifty plants ,
and you will wonder that any man ever
succeeded in winning the victory ever
the acute , numerous and unslumboring
rivals who dispute with you the posses
sion of every leaf.
The special farmer must of _ necessity
possess all the erudition of his specialty ,
and ho succeeds because ho does. A
man became rich on the Hudson by rais
ing one variety of apples , the Newton
pippin , which brought the best price in
Uiiropo and India. There are farmers
In Virginia who gain a largo revenue by
the raising of nenuuts. To use the lan
guage of our informant , "Thoy know
peanuts all to pieces. "
Is it not precisely the sumo in all the
avocations of UH mortals ? An English
lady , who has boon slruggling for life
in Now York and Boston for six yearn an
a writer , told her story the otlior day
in the Woman's Journal. She failed be
cause she did not know how to do anyone
ono thing well enough.
Soon after reaching Now York she
was offered $15 a week to work upoiv nn
encyclopudia , with a promise of $2-5 or
$30 if she proved hor.solf competent.
For a month she worked for hunuilf and
her children with the energy of des
peration , only U ) be told that her want
of knowledge nuule her services usolesH.
She has barely lived , she and her
children , while seeing chance after
chance glide by which hho could not
improve because she had not the special
bkill or npccial knowledge required.
But she has learned wisdom , whioh
flho bus utillxod in the education of her
children. Knch of them , she wiys ,
"knows one thing well , " timl both have
good prospects of success bcwiuso of HUH
0110 as a teuchor of the usual ICnglirth
branches , and the other us a teacher of
music. She utter * this comment , which
we advise our ambitious young readers
to consider :
"Thr.'i-o Is one key , only , which will
open the door to the brcud-wlnner , and
that key Is thorough knowledge of and
training for the work tolocted , whether
it bo making a buttonhole or writing n
treatise on philosophy. The days of
amateur work in any department ar
