Tlicro Is something rotten In the state of
Nebraska ns represented In tlio Chicago con-

only angry protcstnnt. Various republican
ncw8pni > ors of the stnto record tboir opposl-
Ion to the delegation ns it will ontcr the
convention. The burden of complaint Is that
hrough the cnrolcssnesi of the republican'
voters who did not attend the primaries n
delegation was elected by a packed convcn-
Ion \vhoo lenders wcro the solicitors of
lirco railroad corporations nml whose mem
bers "nro nil picked railroad tools. " The
averment In made that "tho delegation docs
lot nt all rcprcsont the sentiment of Nc-
jrnskix's people , but only the Interests and
orders of the railroad magnates , " If the
icoplo of Nebraska are In oamctt In their
ipposltlon to corporate aggression , especially
'rom railroads , they will not pin their faith
.0 any hope of correcting what they call the
lacking whereby railroad tools nro sent to
.ho convention at Chicago. They will show
heir sincerity and good sense by letting the
Nebraska delegation do its voting for Dcpow
or any other railroad magnate or protege
whllo they themselves turn in and support
Cleveland and Tliunnan. C/ifcayo / Times.
It is not necessary that the people of
M'ebrasim shall support the democratic
ticket iu order to free themselves from
corporate aggression. The remedy
does not llo in that direction. The evi
dence is that the influence of the cor
porations is qulto as potent with the
democratic as with the republican
party. Wo do not recall any instance
in which the former has particularly
distinguished itself by championing the
interests of the ticoplo as against the
corporations , The truth is there is not
much to bo hoped for from either party
under existing conditions , since both
eeem to bo about equally anxious not to
olTond cornorato power. A committed
of the democratic house of representa
tives has been since early in the session
considering bills relating to the obliga
tions of the Pacific railroads to the
Tovornmont , but it is too cowardly to
propose any action. There has boon a
jroat deal of talk in the same body
about legislation for the regulation or
suppression of trusts aud similar mo
nopolistic combinations , but thus far it
lias amounted to nothing. The national
democratic platform contains not a
single line condemning corporate ag
gression. These facts give no assur-
incu that anything is to be.expected
troin the democratic party for remedy
ing the abuses and exactions of cor
porate power.
The trouble is iu the apathy of the
people , and their readiness to bo played
upon and hoodwinked by the plausible ,
unscrupulous , over-vigilant and overactive -
active emissaries of the corporations.
But there has been a worse situation of
affairs than exists to-day , bad as it waste
to allow ten representatives of the rail
road corporations to go to Chicago from
Nebraska , and that blunder has effected
an awakening that can hardly fail to
bring some compensating results. The
lionost masses of Nebraska republicans
will , wo believe. , bo less indifferent and
more active and vigilant hereafter in
guarding their interests. And if they
will courageously assort themselves they
have the power to relieve the pcoplo
from corporate aggression.
In Case ol' a Deadlock.
A deadlock in the national republican
convention is not improbable. The sup
porters of the several candidates express
a determined purpose to steadfastly ad
here to their first choice , and if this
spirit is really as strong and earnest as
it appears to bo a long struggle is in
evitable. But deadlocks must be sooner
or later broken , and if there shall boone
ono at Chicago the interesting question
is , upon whom may the nomination fall
when the break comes V In the event
that after several days of balloting it
should bo very clearly demonstrated
that none of the men now prominent as
possible candidates could got
the nomination , what other dis
tinguished republicans are in reserve
to some ono of whom the convention
might rally V
It is doubtless the very general opin
ion that in such a case Mr. Blaine
would receive tlio nomination. It is
also a very common belief that the un
yielding friends of that leader in the
convention will omit no olTort to bring
about a deadlock , with the idea of forc
ing the convention to nominate Blaino.
If there is such a plan wo do not believe
it will succeed. Wo have no doubt
a largo majority of the members
of the convention are thoroughly
imbued with the feeling that
it would bo a grave injustice to Mr.
Blaine to attempt to force the candidacy
upon him. It is not his closest und
truest friends who are insisting upon
placing Him in a false position before
the country , and thereby embarrassing
him and the party. The men who will
not sco that by the explicit terms of his
last latter Mr. Blaine could under no
circumstances accept a nomination are
not those who have had the best means
of knowing him and can understand
how ho must regard such blind zeal.
But it is the men who by reason of thoii
intimate knowledge of Mr. Blaine have
the host right to speak for him who
will oxorelso the largest intluonco upon
the convention , and this will bo oxortet
to have his plainly expressed will re
spected ,
Wo do not believe , therefore , that n
deadlock would result in the nomina
tion of Mr. Blaine , although on the
break ho would doubtless receive a con
siderable number of votes , There are
several conspicuous and worthy repub
licans whoso claims to consideration
would grow into largo proportions if the
exigency of a deadlock should force at
tention to them. Ohio has two in
McKinley and Foraker , Illinois could
ofTer Cullom , Kansas has In galls , Now
York could present Hisuock , and still
the reserve of good men would not bo
exhausted. There is no reason why
the republican party should force a
nomination upon any ono or select ns its
candidate u man under whom it wouli
have to fight on the defensive , ns would
bo the cube , for example , with Dope was
thn standard bearer.
The Virginia Contest.
The contest carried Into the national
convention by the republican factions
of Virginia is to bo regretted on several
accounts. In the first place it has. pro
duced some discord , the effect of which
has perhaps bcqu to create antagonisms
that may romaln > It forbids the hope
of being able to unite the party in Vlr-
jlnla for the next election , and thoro-
ore the idea of many republicans that
there would bo a fighting chance in that
stnto this year must bo abandoned. Us
determination by the con volition cannot
jo satisfactory to all republicans outside
of Virginia , and there will thus bo fur
nished a cause for disaffection that may
mvo a moro extended ill effect than
would now be supposed. The republican
) arty needs perfect peace and harmony
n its ranks.
The contest was foreshadowed mouths
ngo. Such republican loaders in Vir
ginia asViso and Brady long since declared -
clarod a revolt against the autocratic
domination sought to bo maintained by
Mahono , and they are men of such
ability and character as to draw to
.hcmselvcs n largo following from the
jotter clement of Virginia republicans.
They had borne with the tyrannical
and otherwise questionable methods of
Mahono as long as it was possible to cn-
duro them. Last fall Congressman
Brady publicly proclaimed his roputl la-
Lion of Mahonoism , accompanying the
announcement with some very ex
plicit and grave statements as
Lo the course of Mahone. It was
charged that ho was not only un
trustworthy politically , but wanting
in honesty in other respects. Mahono
attempted a defense , but there wore not
great many prepared to accept it.
The bettor , though perhaps not the
larger , class of republicans in Virginia
followed the example of Wise and
Brady , and the factional fight has been
waged moro or less fiercely over since.
It is not questionable that the repub
lican parly in Virginia would bo very
much better olT if it were wholly free
from the counsel and influence of Ma
hono. If there was over a time when
ho had a just claim to its confluence , it
has long gene by. lie possesses good
fighting qualities , but in all other rc-
spoots ho is totally unfitted for a
leader , at least at this time. There
is no more selfish politician in
the country , and none more arrogant
and tyrannical when successful. His
character and methods are in no small
degree responsible for the fact that Vir
ginia is now in democratic control , and
it is hardly possible that it will bo in
any other so long as any considerable
part of the republican party in the slate
supports Mahonoism.
A Serious Ohnrgc.
At the last meeting of the city council
Mayor Broateh in a communication pre
fers charges of collusion between cer
tain contractors and members of the city
government. In very plain terms the
mayor asserts that undue influences
have been brought to bear upon the
board of public works to favor con
tractors as against the city.
It is not likely that the mayor in
tended to convey the impression that
members of the board had accepted
money for their votes in behalf of con
tractors. Had that been the case ho
would have said so in plain terms. In the
light of recent action of certain councilmen -
men before the board , it isquite probable
that the mayor is directing his shafts
at them.
All this trouble has b < 5on brought
about by negligent contractors who
have never kept faith with the city.
They should bo compelled to be honest
or quit.
HOWEVISK brilliant John M. Thurs-
ton may have been as an orator , his se
lection ns temporary chairman was a
grave mistake which 'may react bor-
iously on the party. The manly protest
of Kansas in the open convention was an
ominous warning that should have been
heeded. But Kansas was not the only
state to enter her disapproval. The very
fact that in the committee John M.
Thurston was saved only by the casting
vote of Chairman Jones is the unmis
takable handwriting on the wall that
the west repudiates railroad interfer
ence. But it was California which took
the selection of John M. Thurston with
alarm. The fact that this corporate
lawyer had beaten her own candidate , if
only by a single vole , will bo received
on the Pacific slope as an indorsement
of monopoly. Those arc the signs iu the
heavens which the Chicago convention
can not fail to heed. The muttoringsof
the tempest come from below the horizon
zen , but the thunder was sufllciontly
distinct to warn the convention not to
invite the deluge.
By the admission of Mr. Depow's own
organ , the Jlutl und Express , his nom
ination by the Chicago convention'would
seriously endanger the party's chances
in California , Colorado , Iowa , Kansas ,
Michigan , Minnesota , Nebraska and
Nevada. To this number must bo
added Illinois and Wisconsin , the loss
of which would defeat the republican
nominee , although Mr. Dcpow would bo
certain of the doubtful states No w York ,
Indiana and Now Jersey. It is folly
therefore for the delegates of the
"granger states , " carried away by the
enthusiasm of the moment , to assure
Mr. Donow that "any republican can
carry a republican atato , " It is well to
remember that delegates do not carry
the votes of their respective
states in their pockets. It is a
long time between now and the 7th
of November , and the "granger states'
would have plenty of leisure to think
over the action of their too zealous dele
gates in nominating a railroad attorney
for the presidency.
ONic hundred and ten railroads for
May , 1888 , show a gain in gross earn
ings as compared with the correspond
ing month of last year. For April , 18S8 ,
the gain \yasover 8 per cent. There has
not been a month this year in which the
tondonoy in. earnings has not been up
ward and has not exceeded the returns
for the months of 1887. This too in the
face of ficrco railroad wars , strikes and
inter-state and state restrictions.

A Committee to Go Ho Tore the Stnto
Hoard of Transportation.
In response to a call for n special meeting
of wholesalers , manufacturers , merchants
and business men generally at the board of
trndo building last evening to appoint n com
mittee to co-opcrnto with the stuto board of
transportation to harmonize tlio tariffs of the
railroads In ttio state with those of others ,
only a fair representation turned out. Pres
ident Her presided nnd explained the object

the question , and was free In his statement
that the doors of the board should bo closed
nnd everything of bcnollt and reward to
Oiualm shut down if the citizens did not show
a better deposition to lend their aid.
Mr. W. F. arinitts , to secure the sentiment
of the mooting , nroso ami read the following
preamble and resolution :
Whereas , The Omaha board of trade , ns
representing tlio business Interests of our
city , have been invited by the state board
of transportation to appear before them nt
Lincoln on the 124th Inst. for the purpose
of affording said state board such informa
tion ns they possess aud of expressing their
views upon the formula unproved by said
board , looking to n radical reduction In
freight rates throughout the state of Ne
braska. therefore bo it
Kcsolvcd , That n coinmltteo of thirteen to
bo selected by the chair , and to bo composed
of ono representative from each of the fol-
.lo wing mercantile pursuits , viz : coal , lum
ber , grain , dry Roods , groceries , hardware.
drugs , agricultural implements , produce ,
commission , packinghouses , boots and shoes ,
cigars mid notions , and of one representative
of the board of trndo at large , bo appointed ,
whose duty It shall bo to carefully examine
nnd compare the newly adopted Iowa rail
road freight law , nnd the formula prepared
by our stnto board of transportation , with
the existing freight tariffs of the Nebraska
railroads , nnd deduce from such criticism
and comparison , n line of policy to bo pur
sued at Lincoln , on the SSth inst. , as being
tlio expression of tlio views of tlio merchants ,
manufacturers and business men of Omaha
upon the subject at issuo.
That the committee shall report to nn ad

gates aud proceed to Lincoln on the SSth
inst nnd press consideration of their views
upon the state board at that tlmo and placo.
The question occurring on the adoption of
the preamble and resolution , Messrs. Her ,
Easson , Clark nnd Oriflltts presented
their views nnd experiences with
the railroads and the board of trans
portation. The present high tariff was
thoroughly discussed , and the popular opin
ion was that It would not do for Omaha to
nsk too much. However , the railroads wcro
censured for the exorbitant rates they wcro
now charging , nnd it was pointed out that
they weio exacting a rate of 1U cents per ton
a mile on Hrst-class freight through Ne
braska , whllo cast of the Missouri a rate of
only 3 cents a ton per mile was charged. It
was also stated that the state board of trans
portntion was legislating against Oinaliu in
the interests of Lincoln , Fremont and other
points throughout the state.

Docs Are PrntcotocI , Children Not.
OM.UU , Juno 19 , [ To the Editor of THE
BEK. ] On Monday , Juno 11 , ISS i , my boy ,
aged seven years , was bitten by our neigh
bor's dog , who owns two very vicious and
cross ones that havo'been tbo the terror of
the neighborhood. I called a physician who
attended the child , and after cauterizing tlio
wounds advised that tlio dogs should bo
killed. I asked Mr. George Eiclmcker , who
is the owner , that ho kill the dogs. This ho
llutly refused , and has since then said that
lie would not kill his dog for any child.
Not wanting to take the law in my own
hands , I then tiled an information with the
city attorney. I appeared before Judge
Herka on the day und hour set for tlio trial
with nine witnesses , all respectable citizens ,
all of whom had been attacked by these dogs ,
nnd who are anxious to have them killed.
Wo waited one whole hour for the defend
ant , and when the Judge called
the case , ho , the defendant , had not
appeared , tlio Judge theicupon forfeited the
bond of the defendant. 1 then emphatically
protested that 1 did not want the bond for
feited , but that wo wanted the dogs Idllcd , us
wo did not want to run any moro chances of
Doing bitten , .ludgo Horka made light of the
matter and said the owner , and not the dog ,
was sued , and that I uliould lilo another in
formation , which I did , and the trial was set
for hearing Tuesday , June 10.18S8 , at 10 a. m.
Again the witnesses ami I wcro on hand , rto-
tormincd to have protection , when the city
attorney told mo ho had ordered the dogs
taken away , which , as ho claimed , had boon
done. I then demanded that my witnesses
bo heard , to prove the dogs vicious , and that
1 wanted an order issued to havn tlio dogs
shot on reappearance , for I honestly bcliuva
that they are hid away in the city , for the
excitement to blow over , and then lo bo
brought back ngnln , thereby Jeopardizing the
lives of our children. Lnris Hcu.iiii ,
