IT was Iowa that broke the deadlock

ALL honor to James G. Blnlno. In
the fltorm which swept through the con
vention at the mention of his name , ho
stood calm and unmoved as the ndmnim-

Till' republican convention of 18SS ,
which is the ninth republican conven
tion of the party , resembles in many
features the convention held in Cincin
nati In 1670. In that convention the
loading candidate was Hlaino , The
lessor lights were Brlslow , Conkliiig ,
Ilartranft , Hayes , Morton and Wash-
* * * - - buroo. Seven ballots were necessary
for the successful nomination , in which
! Huyoa received 384 , IJluiuo 851 and Hris-
f-i tow til. The convention of 1SS8 started
off with a strong favorite in Sherman and
a strong Hold , consisting of Harrison ,
Groslmm , Allison , Algor and Dopow.
On the eighth ballot General Harrison
was nominated by a vote of 511. The
longest convention was the ono hold
in Chicago in 1880 , when thirty-six bal
lots were necessary toohooso Gnrilold us
the standard boaror. This was the
memorable occasion when Grant's
famous old guard of " 300" stuck to him
without llincliing during the thirty-nix
ballots. The convention of 1884 was
short and decisive. Hlaino wns nomin
ated on the fourth ballot by u vote of
The SlnndnrCI Doarcrs.
The nomination of General Benjamin
Harrison by the republican national
convention on.tho eighth ballot wns an
unexpected result. The circumstances
Gliding to it constitute nn interesting
chapter in the history of ono of the most
prolonged nnd memorable political con
ventions ever hold in this country. The
movement for Harrison , that advanced
him from the fifth to the second place
nnd hold him there until ho wns nom
inated , developed on Friday evening
immediately following the withdrawal
ot Mr. Dopow. When the Now York
candidate stopped out of the race the
rumor obtained that nearly all
the delegates of that state would
vole on the next ballot for
Harrison , nnd the alarm thus
created among the supporters of other
candidates united them in sustaining a
motion to adjourn. The first ballot on
Saturday , nnd the fourth taken , showed
a gain for Harrison of 122 votes , but on
the next ballot ho lost four votes , and
when the convention adjourned on Sat
urday there were 201 votes between him
and the nomination. The concensus of
opinion was that ho had received the
highest veto ho would got , nnd that new
combinations would bo made during
Sunday that would shut him out. The
sixth and soyonth ballots yesterday ,
however , showed that the Harrison
strength had not only been maintained ,
but slightly increased. The dispatches
from Mr. Blaine , demanding that
his friends should respect his wishes ,
put an end to the plottings of
the persistent Blnino element and oper
ated to the advantage of the Indiana
candidate. It was clear that Sherman
could not bo nominated. His strength
was on the decline , and there was no
reason to suppose it could bo restored.
All that was necessary to the success of
Harrison was the withdrawal of ono of
the prominent candidatosand when Al
lison dropped out the victory of the In-
dianian was assured. It followed on the
next ballot , and the enthusiasm with
which the convention made the nomin
ation unanimous attested that the result
wns generally satisfactory. The friends
of Harrison had made a fair and gallant
fight , and in their victory they have
nothing to explain or defend.
General Harrison will bo a strong
candidate , and we predict that
before the campaign is far ad
vanced republicans every who ro
those on the Pacific coast equally with
those of other sections will bo earnest
in his support. His record is as clear
and honorable as that of any man in the
country , and as the loader of the repub
lican party in Indiana , holding that
po.sition undisputed as the successor of
Oliver P. Morton , he has done valiant
and able service in the republican
cause. Ho won distinction as a soldier ,
and the defenders of the union have
had no warmer or moro consistent
friend. As n lawyer ho is in the front
rank of the bur of Indiana , and his pro
fessional fame is not confined to his
own stnto. In the United States senate
from 1SS1 to 1SS7 ho took an
active part in the discussion
of all loading questions , and his ability
received national recognition. The
outrageous gerrymander of the demo
cratic legislature of Indiana defeated
liim for re-election , nnd ho was the issue -
sue in that state in 1SSO. Ho fought at
the head of the republican forces , and
the result was a republican plurality of
over three thousand , though two years
before the state gave a plurality for
Cleveland of over six thousand. It wns
splendid evidence of the popularity of
General Harmon and of his vigor and
skill as a leader. In the broader field
that now opens tohim his superior quali
ties of leadership will doubtless bo
shown to greater advantage.
In the selection of Levi P. Merion , of
Now York , for the second place
the convention showed n judicious
appreciation of the importance of hav
ing the Empire state represented on the
ticket. There is no moro popular re
publican in Now York than Mr. Morton ,
and ho will undoubtedly bring to the
ticket the full support of the party in
that state , as Arthur did in 1880. Al
though without largo experience in
public life , Mr. Morton is n man of
scholarly attainments and fully quali
fied to discharge the not very exacting
duties of tlio vice presidential olllco.
As the American minister to Franco
during the administration of President
Arthur ho acquitted himself most cred
itably in all respects , Mr. Morton has
always been an ardent republican , and
has done good work for the party. Ho
has been regarded as adovoted friend of
Mr. Blaine , but his course has boon such
as not to give oltonso to any class of re
publicans In Now York , lie will con
sequently have no factional opposition
In that state , and may bo oxpooted to
draw support outside of the party ,
Wo believe that on thoughtful deliberation -
liberation the great majority of repub
licans will conclude that the prolonged
labors of the national convention could
not have had , under all thu cireum-
bUincos , 11 moro satisfactory result , and
of those who doubt the wisdom of the
choice and of course there are such
wo have no doubt that most of them will
heartily fall into line as the battle pro
gresses. It was n fair contest fc < ) far ns
General Hnrribon was concerned.
There has boon no charge of
improper or unwnrrantablo meth
ods made against him or his friends.
No republican can therefore refuse to
vote for him on the ground that his
nomination was not fairly nnd honora
bly obtained. And after all it is not so
much the candidates that republicans
are called tipon to consider us it is the
principles they stand for. Those who
approve the platform of the party need
not hesitate in endorsing the candi
dates. Wo have no doubt Harrison will
carry Indiana , and if the republicans of
other states rally in force to the support
of the ticket the chances of success will
L o exceedingly favorable.
TinciU ! is some criticism , not alto
gether unjust , upon the summary way
In which the police judge disposes of
most of the cases that daily coino bcforo
lilm , The average number of police
court cases is estimated at
not loss than sixty a day , nnd
to the majority of these the court
docs not glvo a hearing to exceed three
minutes each. On ono day last week
eighty-four cases were disposed of in
thrco hours , giving to each coso nn nv-
orngc of two minutes and twelve sec
onds. This is expediting business with
n vengeance , nnd while it may bo true
that very many of the drunks , disorder
lies , and other small offenses tlmt
go to the police court do
not call for more attention than
is usually given them , it is also true
that there is danger in such haste of in
flicting punishment thnt is not required
In the interests of justice , or whore a
little investigation would warrant the
court in tempering justice with mercy.
There Is no question ns to the cfllcieney
of Judge Berkn , and no fault can ho
found with his disposition to fearlessly
administer the law , but judicial service
in a police court is very apt to harden
the heart of a man and drive sentiment
and sympathy out of his nature. Daily
contact with the unfortunate carries
him farther and farther awny from the
idea that there may bo any mitigating
circumstances for the folloy or misfor
tune of the people who are brought tinder
dor his jurdiction. That a man is shown
to have been drunk or disorderly is
enough , nnd without giving the unfor
tunate time to explain the circum
stances of what was perhaps his first violation
elation of law , ho is sent oil to share the
deserved punishment of repeated and
confirmed law breakers. Obviously a
practice that summarily disposes of
cases in an average time of little moro
than two minutes to each , cannot fail to
sometimes result in unnecessary hard
ship to individuals without any benefit
to the cause of justice. If the duties of
the police judge are excessive , com
pelling him to rush the work presented
daily for his attention , some way should
bo found to relieve him , but in any
event it does not appear necessary that
the police court of Omaha should sock
to make a champion record for speed in
its line of business.
Tin : tempest in the tea-pot is over.
The mayor made a lizzie ; Hascall as
sumed the roll of bulldozer ; the council
vindicated itself to its own satisfaction ,
and tlio words "undue influences" re
main unexplained. Of all the charges
and investigations that have taken
place before the council , the ono just
ended was by all odds the most farcical.
The facts are known to everybody that
city contractors , especially Fanning &
Slavin do not live up to the terms of
their stipulations. In this matter the
zeal of the mayor and the chairman of
the board of public works arc to be com
mended and supported in their attempts
to bring these contractors to terms
in the face of a council notoriously
careless to the city's interests nnd par
tial to contractors. But it may bo ques
tioned il Mayor Broalch acted pru
dently in the course ho has taken. To
say the least the choice of his words ,
"undue influences , " in his communica
tion to the council were unfortunate.
They put him in a tight box out of
which ho has squirmed with dilliculty.
The explanations of other members of
the board of public works , if true , show
a partiality toward Fanning and Slavin ,
as against the letter of tlio con trout.
They were wrong in favoring tlio con
tractor as against the city.
Tim report of Ilio estimated expenses
of the schools of the city for the oiibu-
int' year has juat been made. A glance
nt the table shows that $030,000 ; nro re
quired for coining oxponditurcs to meet
which , in addition to the present re-
bourccs , : i levy of $120,000 is necessary.
There are three items of expenses which
deserve considerable scrutiny. They
are the pay-roll for the teachers and
janitors , amounting to $195,000 ; the con
templated purchases of school sites of
$25,000 , ami the proposed new buildings
to cost $90,000. In all these items the
board has dealt with a moat lavish hand ,
and it is well known that the teachers
of Omaha , are paid better salaries than
in any city of the country.
The board has a good deal of money to
spend. There is no city in the country
whore the appropriation for school pur
poses are moro liberal than in
Omaha. This btato of nITuirs has led
the board of education to bo exceedingly
liberal. The consequences are , that in
spite of the enormous resources and rev
enues the school board is continually
hard up. It would seem that more con-
eorvntlvo measures might bo taken by
the board in order that the very boat
robults bo attained.

The motion for a now trial in tbo case of

Judge Wakeley yesterday passed upon
the application of ihu Clark heirs for an in
junction restraining the Fremont , Elkhorn &
Missouri Valley railroad company from cut
ting and making n fill on property belonging
to them. Plaintiffs claim in their petition
that the condemnation of the property was
not regular from the fact thnt ono of the
heirs interested in the property
had no notice that the appraisnicnt was to bo
made and that all the appraisers wore not
present when the condemnation proceedings
were conducted. They claim further that
the cutting1 for and grading of tlio road 1ms
damaged their property and caused
It to overflow in wet weather.
The award of damages against the company
was 61.10J. The court held thatthcrompany

TRIED TO BLUFF GENERAL LOGAN
An Alleged Incident of the Exciting
Convention of 188O.
At the Chicnpo convention in 18SO
the great trio Conkling , Lognn nnd
Cameron linIced their forces , us nil the
world knows , to force the nomination of
General Grant for n third term , says
the Minneapolis Tribune. The tre
mendous strain of that struggle on the
loaders of the GOU can no\or bo expressed -
pressed in words , but it has appeared in
deeds more or less tragic and nil of a
texture to fix the plnco of nil thrco in
American history as the most deter
mined political fighters who over stood
up together in a convention. Conkling
never recovered from the defeat ,
Cameron never let on thnt
ho had been defeated , nnd
Lognn , unlike Conkling , whoso
anger struck in , was capable of throw
ing oil his rage through the medium of
n most remarkable power of painting
lurid word pictures with colors not nd-
missiblo into the literary nrt galleries
of the language. An incident that il
lustrates Logan's power of colloquial in
vective was related to mo the other
day. It happened thnt ono afternoon
when General Logan entered the
Palmer house during n recess of the
convention ho was accosted on the slops
by seine ono , who said : "Well , gen
eral , how is it going ; " '
"Grant will bo nominated to-night , "
said Logan , taking olT his hat nnd
throwing back his black hair with .1 do-
"Oh , no , general , you are a little
overconfident , " said another.
Thib remark scorned to nettle the man
from "Egypt , " and he turned upon the
Rpenker , his eyes flashing , arid shouted ,
' I'll bet a thousand dollars on it. "
I'll lake that bet , " said a quiet voice
in the outskirts of the crowd.
"Come to parlor Q in half an hour , "
said Loganedging oh"as his antagonist
seemed bent on a show of cash on the
Promptly in half an hour a man with
a cane in his bund knocked at the floor
of parlor Q and nsked for General Lo
gan."Who wants tosco inpV" asked Logan
in the thoroughly pacific tone of a man
who is seeking delegates.
"I do. I am. the man who bet $1,000
with you on General Grant's nomina
tion. I have brought my monoy. " The
stranger shifted his cano to his loft arm
and laid a modest $1,000 bill on his
Logan was nonplused for a minute ,
and then like a flash seemed to conclude
that a grand charge all along the line
was the only thing that would rescue
him from his exposed position. Ho
turned upon the would-be better and
poured a perfect torrent of abuse and
swear words upon him , winding up by
cnllinghim a "skin gambler from Sara
toga Springs. " The hceno was lorrillc ,
and the more the stranger protested that
ho was a respectable man and had como
by invitation of Logan to make a wnger
the louder Blaek Jack became and the
further otT the bet seemed from the
mind of either , for tlio stranger put
away his money and lot loose a voice
and scorching tongue that were second
only to Logan's. They were finally sep
arated and no bet was made.
Four years afterwards the gentleman
who told mo this story , having removed
from Indiana lo Minneapolis , was asked
to address a Seventh ward meeting , nnd
complied with the request. Whortho
entered the hall another gentlciiian was
speaking whoso tones were somehow fa
miliar , and ns they rode buck to town
together ho said to his acquaintance :
"Aren't you the skin gambler from
Saratoga Springs that Jack Logan
"Yes , " was the reply , "but I have re
formed. My name is Kustis. What is
yours ? "
"Evnus. I was in the room at the
timo. and I have wondered since if I
should over ayain meet tno man who
bluffed Jack Logan. "

have labored so hard to obtain. Dr. .1. Crcaap
McCoy or his associates do not make ilalmu to
anything marvelous , such as raising the dead
and giving them a new life ; neither do they claim
to gl\e sight to the blind ; but by their new nud
sclentillc method of treating catarrh they havu
cured anil do euro catarrh ns well as
bronchial and throat troubles. They make
catarrh a specialty , becanso It Is ono of thd
most prevalent and troublesome disease tlmt the
people of tills climate are heir to. Since Dr. Mc
Coy nnd his associates have located in this city ,
they have treated with success hundreds ot
persons whom other physicians have tel < k
their disease was classed among the Incura
bles. Do they not publish from week to wcolc
In the dally p.ipcnt testimonials from some of the
many gtatefuf patients , giving In each case the
full name and address of the persons making
the statement that the doubting , and fikop-
timl may call and Interview the said people
prior to visiting the doctor's olllco for consulta
tion. The people advertised as cured are by no
means obscnro unknown , but In the majority
of cases are citizens well known by the business
