Tfannkftjclr'tag Day.
The observance that will be given Jo
to-day by sixty millions ot people lias
the approval of two and a half centuries.
The history of Thanksgiving Day is fa
miliar to every reader of American his
tory. Its earliest observance In this
country wns after thoflrstharvcst of the
New England colonists in 10'Jl , when
Governor Unidford issued a proclama
tion summoning the people to meet at a
common time nnd plaru to rejoice in
prayer for the bountiful harvest that had
rewarded their labors in the new conti
nent. Subsequently at intervals days
of thanksgiving were observed , but it
was not until the year 18011 that Thanks
giving Day was proclaimed as a legal
holiday of national observance.
Every , year since the last Thursday in
November has boon observed as day of
national thanksgiving , nnd the practice
thus established will probably continue
for generations. It lins grown in favor
from year to year , and there is no rea
son to doubt that it will take n stronger
hold upon the popular regard with the
coming years. Every consideration
commends the day to approval and ob
servance , and all the conditions that
have contributed to preserve it thus far
will operate more strongly in the fu
ture to perpetuate n respect for it.
The present year makes a moro than
ordinary demand upon the gratitude of
the American people. This nation has
been peculiarly and generously blessed
in all material respects. While local
ities may huvo sulTorcd from one cause
and another , the aggregate results
huvo added largely to the wealth of the
country , which during the past twelve
months has taken a long stride forward
in the path of progress. The people as
a whole are more prosperous to-day
than they wore a year ago , the nation
is wealthier , and all the conditions to
further advancement huvo boon in
creased. The American people have
reason to see still more clearly that the
destiny of the republic is to occupy the
foremost plaeo among the nations of the
earth as a commercial power , with all
the possibilities of moral and political
influence that such a position
implies. No other nation has so much
in the achievements of the past and the
promises of the future to be thankful
There are connected with the observ
ance of to-day offices of kindness and
beneficence that will occur to all who o
feelings arc in sympathy with the occa
sion without suggestion. It will bo suf
ficient to say that the o who have every
reason to bo thankful should endeavor
to bring less happily situated into
sympathy with the spirit of the day.
The opportunities to do this will not be
wanting to those who care to .seek
them , and there is gratification in
the knowledge of having contributed to
make others contented and thankful.
"VVo trust that every reader of the BKE
is in a position to fully appreciate the
significance and enjoy the festivities of
the day.
Too Much.
Regan Bros , and Brennau , their as
signee , in the city hall contract , have
entered protest against letting their un
finished work to a now contractor. Now
we would like to know what right they
have to object. Regan Bros' , contract
for constructing the city hall subbasement
ment nnd basement was made a year
ago last September. The contract al
lowed them until tlio first of July , 1887
to complete their work. Any responsible
contractor could have finished the work
by the first of May. But Regan Bros ,
turned over their city hall contract to
Bronnan last winter , and devoted their
time and capital to paving.
Brcnnun himself , had but very
limited means , and was in no
condition to carry out the con
tract. Regan Bros , know tinsnnd , there
fore they cannot pretend to be surprised
at Brennan's failure to complete the
work by the first of July.
Nearly five months have been frit
tered away , since lhexpiration of the
limit fixed by the contract for complet
ing the basement. Brennan has quit
work altogether , when other contract
ors on private buildings are still at
work , lie has virtually thrown up the
contract by refusing to proceed with
the work , and the board of public works ,
very properly , has let his unfinished
work to a new contractor. This the city
has a right to do under the
agreement with Regan Bros. , and
their bondsmen are liable for
the damage , already sustained by inex
cusable delay. The city is paying over
ton thousand dollars a year rent for its
own offices , board ot education , library ,
etc. , which are all to bo accommodated
in the city hall building.
The delay in the construction of the
building will cost the city nearly a year's
rent , besides exposing the books , doc
uments , etc. , to destruction in fire traps
which are liable to burn down any
If Regan Bros , or Brennan mean
business , why have-they not the mater
ial on hand to finish the work , and why
have they not kept right on when the
season was so favorable ?
In tlio Interest of the Fanners.
The wheat growers of the United
States are to be congratulated upon the
advance in the prices of wheat that has
taken place within the past week. The
advance in this country naturally fol
lowed that in the English market ;
which was the natural resul of the de
cline in export from this country. In-
btead of an average of 19,000,000 bushels
monthly us during the whole of last sea
son , or an average of 18,000,000 bushels
as during the first two months of this sea
son , American exports have lately fuller
to an average of U,000,000 bushels , and
with very little prospect of an increase
until the next fall crop is in sight. The
export in 1880-7 coiibiderably exceeded
the actual surplus from the crop of lasl
year , while the exports in the first twc
months of 1S87-88 were so far above the
nmrk as to be entirely misleading. The
latter put n stop to speculation by put
ting the wheat operators of the world
on the wrong scent ; but with n returr
to normal export , speculation is once
moro reviving , ami wheat value , * whict
should have been maintained at tin
average of 1886-87 are now returning t (
that position. believed that tin
decline in wheat was hot only . . .no1
caused , by any competition between ox
porting countries , but that the advance
is an effort on the ] > nrt of England to
obtain adequate supplies which oilier
wise would be diverted to the continent.
America , instead of supplying two-
thirds of her wants , as in 1880-87 , can
only supply ono-half , and in order to ob
tain the remainder Franco , Italy and
Belgium have to bo competed with.
Russia has a full crop , but very little
of it is reaching England , wliilo India
and Australia , pending thoU * now crop ,
will only part with the remainder of
their email surplus at an advance. The
Argentine Republic has a largo crop , at
least on paper ; but , as inother cases ,
the advancing freights are an obstacle ,
and one that ot itself compels higher
prices. As the situation now appears ,
the promise is that the wheat growers of
America will realize many millions
moro for their product than at the
close of harvest they seemed likely
to do.
Al.l. ndvices agree that there is a dis
position among the members of the na
tional republican committee to look
with favor upon the application of
Omaha for the national convention.
Our ability to provide accommodations
for the vast crowd that will attend the
convention nnd our willingness to pro
vide the required fund nro the import
ant conditions of which the committee
must bo satisfied. The former will present -
sent no serious difficulty , but as to the
latter the progress making is not en
tirely reassuring. The full amount
ought now to bo pledged. There is only
n short time in which to raise the sum
needed , nnd it is to bo hojK-'d our liberal
citizens will come forward with the sub
scriptions without further doltiy. It
would help the cause a great deal to bo
able to announce that the money had
been pledged.
THE decision of the supreme court
sustaining the police commission of
Omaha in their controversy with the
city council creates no surprise in this
city. This decree is iu accord with
the letter and spirit of the law , and in
the interest of good government. It
sustains the position which the BKE has
maintained from the outset of the con
troversy between the council and police
commission. It is to be hoped that the
disgraceful wrangle over police man
agement will now cease and the police
commission will bo permitted , without
urther hindrance , to give Omaha of-
icient police protection. The full text
of the decision has not yet been re
ceived , hence our comment upon the
> oints.touched by the decision of the
court is necessarily witheld.

THE members of the Lincoln city

been thrown over a four story building.
THE methods employed in stamping

The running scheUulo of the two fast trains
to bo put on the Burlington December 4 ,
mention of which hu been made in the Br.K ,
has been decided unon. No. 1 will leave
Chicago daily at o'clock noon. Dinner and
supixjr will bo served iu the dining cars , nnd
the train will reach Omaha ut live o'clock the
following morning. At this point a sleeper
and dining car will bo side tracked , and
breakfast will bo taken at Lincoln. The
Cheyenne sleeper will be dropped
at Holdrcge , dinner will bo eaten at Oxford ,
supjwr at Akron , and Denver will be reached
at 10 p. in. , where connections will bo made
with the liio G ramie's new trains for Utah ,

The return train , or Burlington No. 2 , will
leave Denver at 10 p. in. , breakfast at Oxford
next morning , pick up the Cheyenne sleeper
ut Holdrege. dine at Lincoln and arrive hi
Omaha at a0 : ! p. in. ; attach sleeper and din
ing car and arrive iu Chicago the fol
lowing morning at 8 a. in. The
whole run iuujudes only a dozen
stops , and the stations where these stops are
made are eighty miles apart. This annihilat

no doubt rebound to their credit , and in the
main be appreciated by the traveling public.

Detective .Tames Howard , of Minneapolis ,
arrived yesterday with requisition papers
for the alleged murderer Peter Barrett The
prisoner will bo taken to Minnesota tomorrow
row night. Mr. Howard says that they have
adcodsuro thing on both the Barretts , and
that they will undoubtedly bo hanged.
According to Detectives Howard nnd Kin-
ucy the Barrett family is composed of des
perate characters. They ufilrm that no ICKH
than fifteen charges for highway robbery are
pendiugagainst Tim nnd Pete Barrett. One
of their boldest crimes was nt Minnelmhu
FaUs , whuro they forced a lady nnd two
children to tuke off their jewels ut tlir point
of a revolver. Even Mrs. Barrett , mother of
the boys , has aided them in many crimes.
Sonic time siuce the family started from
Ornahn to Minneapolis. Tim would take 0110
of the horses and go ahead u few miles and
sell it to some farmer. Tlio next day the old
woman would reach the plaeo and demand
tlio horse , claiming that it hud been stolen
from her , and if the farmer showed a dispo
sition to hold the property she would threaten
him with prosecution. This would cause the
farmer to jrivu In. In this way the same
horse was sold and reclaimed six times. Ofll-
cers in Omaha corroborated these state
Mrs. Barrett and attorney M. II. Scars
will accompany the prisoner to Minneapolis

cent she owns or can raise to see tlmt her son

mother , ofllccr Kenney , of Mlnncaiwlis , uf
linns thut the testimony against the young
man is conclusive , and that ho hns no moro
show of getting oft than ho does of taking
wings nnd Hying. Barrett retaliates mid
says tlmt the ofllccr has u special grudge
against him and his brothers , and thut all his
talk amounts to nothing.
