SENATOU BKCK , of Kentucky , has
introduced a bill in the senate for the
establishment of a national zoological
garden near Washington. Its main
purpose will bo to preserve the wild
animals indigenous to the United
States. If Senator Beck can corral the

Ho has put his foot down on marching

and piazzas. At first blush one might

IK Senator Stanford carries into ef
fect his ideas of an ideal university ,
California will furnish the model of the
coming institution of learning. The
university will bo broad and liberal in
every particular. Ono BOX will have
equal advantages with the other. There
will bo nn Industrial school in which the
inaohlno shop and a department to en
courage inventions will bo a feature.
The latter is dcoidmllyan innovation in
the educational world. It is evidently
Senator Stanford's purpose to make of
the university a practical school Whoso
graduates shall bo something moro than
ornamental tosocioty. If the university
BUCceodH in this particular , it will stand
at the head of every oducutiodul college

THK bill passed by the late Now York
legislature , substituting death by oloc-

Will bo the first in the union to do away
with the ropd us an instrument of cnu-
itnl punishment. Undoubtedly the
great majority of these who approve ol
the death penalty will agree that a less
brutal method than that of breaking
the man's neck or strangling him to
ftenth is desirable , and as society will
bo equally protected and justice as cer
tainly done in putting a criminal la
death by electricity , that method being
more humane than hanging will doubtless -
loss in time bo generally adopted. It

not lOio its terrors in losing its tortures

Xcnohors in Politics ,
When the legislature extended to
women the privilege of voting at school
elections , the now departure was hailed
> y friends of education ns a step in the
right direction. It was but natural to
expect that women would take an active
ntorost in placing the schools upon a
ilpli plane of public morals , and exert ,
heir best efforts to have competent and
oputnble persons elected to manage ,
ho schools. In villages nnd the
malleicities this c xpccln-
ilon has boon fully realized.
3ut our experience in Omaha has
shown a lamentable want of interest in
ho public schools on the part of the
nass of women , and nn excess of politi
cal zeal on the part of teachers. Last
year a largo number of the teachers
entered the campaign as political par-
isans , under the pretext that the
secretary of the board of education ,
who was n candidate for re-election ,
wus offensive to them. The conduct of
Tinny of these teachers at the polls
ast year was on a par with the po-
itlcal hack and ward bummer. Men
who wont to the polls were button-
toled and pulled about by school
na'ums whom they had never met , tick
ets were snatched out of the hands
of voters and torn up by these zealots ,
and women wore dragooned into the
support of their candidates under all
sorti of pretenses.
The victory won last year by the com-
jlno of , the teacher's politicians placed
the board of education practically under
, ho domination of the school ma'ams.
The threat of their displeasure became
i club over the head of every member.
[ f ho dared to resist the importunities
of the leaders , or oven expressed the
opinion that expenses should bo cur-
, uilud , ho was put upon the list. This
s why Mr. Augustus Pratt , one of our
nest respected and best citizens , was
defeated last Monday while these who
: iavo been lavish and oxtravn-
jant with the school fund wore boomed
ind re-elected. In justice to the great
) ody of Omaha teachers wo must bay ,
liowcvcr , that the offensive activity at
the polls was chiefly exhibited by high-
salaried principals and special favor
ites who have been promoted above
; hcir merit. The primary school
teachers that draw from $400 to S700 a
year had no enemies to punish nor
friends to reward.
On behalf of the patrons of the public
schools and the. taxpayers of Omaha
THU BEK calls a halt to partisanship in
our schools. The right of teachers ,
male or female , to express their choice
Cor members of the board of education
through the ballot box is not
called in question. But the active
interference of teachers nt the
| ) ells should not bo tolerated. If the
teachers , by organized combination ,
ticket peddling and bulldozing , are
allowed to dictate who shall and who
shall not manage our public schools ,
than all discipline is at an end.
The inevitable result must bo the
promotion and retention of teachers
who arc most active in school politics.
A few years of such school ma'am
government would make the public
schools a political hot-house. It is high
time that tlio board of education should
sot itself right before the people by
adopting regulations that will make
political activity on the part of teachers
and other employes of the schools cause
for dismissal. Such regulations impar
tially cnforcedaro absolutely demanded
to preserve our schools from the pollut
ing oll'ects of political chicanery and
unjust discrimination against meri
torious teachers who are not disposed
to dabble in politics.
National Conservatory of
The establishment of an American
conservatory of music , national in its
scope and purpose , was a project that
demanded both courage and patriotism.
It was inevitable that for a time there
would bo oxpeditures largely in excess
of receipts ; that these who wont into
the enterprise would bo called upon to
draw heavily from their private means.
It was impossible to fix the period when
this demand would ceabo. Pride of
country , confidence in the liberality of
our people to sustain such an institu
tion , and faith that the results would
justify the endeavor , wore the incen
tives to undertake the project.
The honor of the conception
belongs to Mrs. Jeannette M. Thur-
bor of Now York. This lady
had lived much abroad , in Franco and
in Italy. She had scon the schools of
music in those countries numerously
attended by pupils from America. She
bocanio impressed with the thought
that the American people were n
musical people , and should have .in
their own land a national school estab
lished on a plan that would enable these
having talent , but not the means to go
abroad , to receive without cost u
musical education as complete as
Europe could give. This thought
grow upon her , became a conviction ,
and she determined to carry it intc
otlcct. Having largo moans of her
own she was in n position to sub
stantially demonstrate her faith and
No small amount of effort was
required to enlist the proper
portions in the project , but such
were scoured , and in September , 188-5 ,
the National Conservatory of Music ol
America was incorporated. Throe
months'lator it was opened with u corps
of experienced and competent teachers ,
and a number of pupils which showed
that the enterprise was appreciated ,
The third ycarof the institution has just
closed with most gratifying results. It
has grown steadily in public regard nnd
in usefulness. Its curriculum has been
enlarged at each term , and now in
cludes features not to bo found in most
of the similar schools of Europe. During
the last term the conservatory was at
tended by two hundred pupils , and since
it was opened it has contributed a nuuv
ber of people to the lyric btago , some
of whom have attained marked success ,
It has most amply demonstrated thai
there was a demand for such an institu
tion , and that it is worthy of the mosl
liberal support from these whoso means
enable them to bo generous.
The usefulness of the National Con.
servatory of Music will bo- material ! }
enlarged in the ensuing term by the ad
dition of a uumh.or at branches. , A wise
slop has also boon taken , by way of em
phasizing its national character , in es
tablishing n system of free scholarships ,
under which it is hoped Jthat
in no great time ono scholar
ship may bo founded for each
state , to bo conferred upon
the candidate from the same who shows
the moat talent. Tlio success of this
worthy institution depends upon the
generosity of these who have the means
to bo generous , and to such it should not
appeal in vain.
Tun lower courts of Wyoming have
put themselves on record ns favoring
the cattle barons ns ngainst the govern
ment. In n decision just rendered ,
affecting moro than 4,000,000 acres of
government land , the rulings wore ,
that the owners of railroad land may
incloso their possessions oven when they
fence in government land by so doing.
According to this decision cattlemen who
were compelled by President Cleveland
to remove their fences from the public
domain within the railroad limit may
now put them up again. The suit was
brought by the United States ngainst a
syndicate of stockmen to compel them
to remove the fences Inclosing govern
ment and railroad land in pursuance of
President Cleveland's order. That the
stand taken by the Wyoming court is
nn injustice to the people is apparent on
the face of it. It is therefore a surprise
that the rulings of the territorial judge
did not sustain the executive. Tlio
case , however , deus not rest with this
decision. The government has ap
pealed to the supreme court of the
United States , und its decision will have
a most important bearing in the solu
tion of this vexed question.
AN attempt is being made to intro
duce cookery in the schools of Chicago ,
but it is meeting with very little en
couragement from the newspapers. One
of them discusses the matter in this sen
sible way : ' 'If cookery is introduced in
the schools there will properly be a de
mand for instruction in cutting , fitting ,
and in making articles of clothing and
for doing laundry work. _ It is import
ant that girls know ho\v to wash , starch
and iron clothes. Girls as well ns boys
should learn many things that are not
now taught in tlio public schools. It
docs not follow , however , that the pub
lic schools should undertake to give in
struction in every department of learn
ing or in every art practiced in the
shop , Kitchen , laundry and nursery.
They have already attempted to do too
much. " The indefensible folly of intro
ducing cookery in the high school of
Omaha was committed several months
ago by our school board , but it is to bo
hoped it will not bo permitted to sur
vive the present school year. It is one
of the matters which the now board
should give early attention to , with ref
erence to dispensing with the silly
SOJIK of the residents on Dodge
street west of Sixteenth , where paving
is to begin on Monday , are disposed to
protest ngainst the quality of the cedar
blocks which it is proposed to lay down.
Ono of them yesterday brought to Tin :
Bun olllco a sample which ho claimed
was no better than forty or fifty per
cent of the block now on the ground
and which was certainly most unfit for
paving. It may bo that the contractor
does not intend to use block partially
destroyed by dry rot and not fully sea
soned , as was the case with the sample
brought to this olllco , but such defect
ive material has been used in Omaha
and the citizens of Dodge street , who
must pay for the paving , are justified in
seeing that they are not imposed upon.
In matters of this sort taxpayers cannot

WHEN Mathew Arnold wrote his crit
icism about Americans ho scored us un
mercifully in his blunt British way. A
noted Frenchman , M. Paul Blouot , bet
tor known as the author of "John Bull

visit to the United States. His long ex
perience as n public man in England
and the continent fits him admirably as
a critic of our peculiarities. It is with
no faint hearted praise , that M. Blouot
testifies that the educated American
represents the highest typo of civiliza
tion , while the women of this country
nro beyond comparison. It may bo that
as a Frenchman M. Blouot is too gallant
to point out our shortcomings. But it
will' bo remembered that Mr. Arnold
was no lens enthusiastic in his admira
tion of American women , while ho drew
a sadder picture of everything else.

A few Sundays ago Rev. Mr. Copeland
pointed out in ono of his sermons that the
churches were largely to blama for the lack
of interest which the younger members show
and suggaitod that the churches should bo
made brighter and moro agreeable. The
suuie feeling is shared by a great many good
people who are trying to make the church n
place which shall attract young psrsons ,
"Tho trouble is.'i said tin observing citizen ,
"thero is u feeling that , secular enjoyment
should enter into the church ns little as pos

It Is. At least in the City of Churches ,
the oxpsrimeiit Is being tried of connecting

library , shooting gallery , games and other
methods of amusenunt. The club numbers
among 1U members all the young people of
the church. It meets once u week for dis
cussion , shooting , playing and conversation.
The minister enters heartily into the sports ,
Ho plays checkers and chess , und can hit the
bull's eye In the shooting gallery. He has
made himself popular with the children and
young men , and they prefer the company of
his club to that of the saloon. If Brooklyn

"If you want to see a specimen of the

"Tho sale of unclaimed packages , which
1ms been * running this week , was n

n dingy looking parcel , and n man bid twenty-
five cents. 'Sold' snld Frotwcll. The pur
chaser opened It and found that it contained
twenty-four watches , worth perhaps twlco

Then for about twenty minutes bidding was

George M. Eicholbcrgcr , n prominent Ohio
lawyer and politician , who speculates In
real estate on the side , was in Omaha this
week looking after a business block or two.
He said the best thing the people of Ne
braska could ilo , would bo to mnko liberal
expenditures of money In boring for natural
gas. "It has been found all around Ne
braska , in Dakota , Colorado , Wyoming nnd
Kaiibas. Then why neb here ) It seemsjm-
probable that an Imaginary state line would
separate the earth's deposits. At Findlny ,
perhaps the greatest natural gas field in the
United States , the daily output is 55,000,000
cubic feet. In addition to the wonderful
amount of gas , in that district the daily How
of oil Is 7,000 barrels moro than at Lima.
Although in the territory comprising the cn-
tlro Lima district many wells are shut down
on account of the low nrico of oil selling at
less than 13 cents a gallon the output Is
M.OOO barrels a day. The Standard Oil com
pany is building additional tanks with a
capacity of 50,000 barrels in addition to the
3,1)00,000 barrels now in store. Since January
1 there have been built in Findlay ! J,330
houses , und this number will bo doubled
during the year. After thorough investiga
tion if it was determined that there was no gas
underlying Nebraska , Nebraska capital
could not bo better employed than in building
a pipe line from the Wyoming oil fields. The
pipe line from Lima to Chicago is now under
way a distance of :103 : mlloa , costing , per
haps , over a half million dollars. But It
will pay. It means cheap fuel to the great
city of Chicago. Fuel , I notice , Is nn Im
portant item In Nebraska. The day will
como when a pips line will be built yet
( hero would bo money In it now to the com
pany owning it , to s-iy nothing of the relief
it would bring the consumer.
' 'The spediclc of Jim North on the com

remarked n prominent Nebraska politician
In commenting on the St. Louis convention.
"It reminds me , " he continued , "of nn Inci

named Pinney was placed in tha same pssl-

committee was instructed to retire and re

Nevada , was to entertain the committee and
n few friends , myself among them , after the
report. In about half an hour after the
