lif liis school days the vice president
to the Cleveland ticket wns called
Itight-Angloil Triangle. But by con
senting to play tail to the democratic
kilo , Thurman has boon knocked into
an obtuse trianplo at a ainglo blow.
IT was Benjamin Harrison , the great
grnndfathor of General Bon Harrison ,
the republican nominee of 1888 , who
signed the Declaration of Independence
in 1770. The loyal blood has not boon tar
nished since the days it flowed in the
veins of that revolutionary hero.
AT both the republican mul the demo
cratic conventions the opening prayers
wore punctuated with cheers. But that
is not to bo wondered nt when the enthu
siasm of delegates is on the point of
oiTorvescence that needs only an oppor
tunity to spout like a geyser spring.
fought nobly under the
gonfalon and white plume of our Henry
of Navarre. Crowded into the last
ditch , with defeat staring them in the
lace , the Californians snatched the ban
ner of Harrison , rallied the serried
ranks and rushed to the van loading
the hosts in the victory for Indiana.
WHAT finer compliment could bo paid
in congratulating General Harrison
than the words so fittingly expressed
by Mr. Blnino : "Your election will
seal our industrial independence ns the
declaration of ' 70 , which boars the
heroic name of your great grandfather ,
1 scaled our political independence. "
THE republican convention ended in
n great lovo-fcast. All dill'oroncos wore
laid aside and candidates and delegates
with ono accord joined in fraternal cm-
V. brace the moment the nomination of
Harrison wns assured. The closing
moments of the con volition proved that
the success and g6ry ! of the republican
party are above faction or individuals ;
and all things augur well for republican
victory in November.

TlIK decision of the intor-stato
commerce commission in the Denver
outvn lias had a salutary olTcct. The
transcontinental railroad managers
have wisely concluded that it would bo
best for thorn to revise their tariff
shoots at once in conformity with the
inter-slate law prohibiting violations of
the long and short haul. There is
moreover , a nervousness in railroad
circles , owing to the fact that the com
missioners liavo ordered the re
bellious northwestern roads , which
have do Hod the intor-stato law ,
to give an.explanation of their conduct
Tlio mooting U to take place at Dos
Molnos at an early date and a thorougl
investigation is promised. It is evident
to the managers of the railroads be
tween Chicago and St. Paul that thoj
have got themselves squeezed in a
knothole. Tho. plea that they wore
forced to cut through rates in carrying
freight on the grounds of the lake com
petition will not hold water. There is no
lake competition between Chicago ant
St. Paul , But like drowning men thcso
roads grasp nt the only defense whicl
can justify them in their efforts to meet
the low rates made by the Chicago
Burlington & Northern. . ,
AVIIl They Bo Just ?
Will the democratic nnd other nows-
inpors that have persistently accused
dr. Blalno of Insincerity , nnd of seck-
ng by indirection tosecuro the nomina-
ion at Chicago , now have the manll-
ess nnd honesty to do him justice by
nndldly confessing that they had mls-
udged him ? Ills impossible thnt any
f the editors who linvo gone on from
ay to day charging Mr. Blnino with
uplicity and jugglery can now fall to
oo that they were wrong , and so seeing
s it not their manifest duty to frankly
clt nowledgo their error ? The dispatches
rein Mr. Blaine read to the -eonvcn-
ioh on Monday wore a complete and
oncluslvo refutation of every charge ,
ntimation orsuspicion that has reflected
upon the sincerity and the finality
Of the roinmutiications that preceded
hem. The votes given him in the con-
ontion wcro in violation of his wishes.
The plans of his uncompromising and
nistaltcn friends in thnt body wore
vholly without his authority. Tills has
> eon so clearly nnd unmistakably
hewn that no fair-minded man will for
a moment question it. Justice requires
hat ho bo fully nnd unqualifiedly ac
quitted of all responsibility for the ill-
udtrod 7.cal of his friends. It is not
icccssary to consider whether Mr.
3lamo might or might not have had the
lomination had he signified a willing
ness to accept it. It is quite probable
that ho was the second choice of a large
majority of the convention , and if
10 had permitted the friends who
van ted him and none other to main-
, ain a deadlock , it was perhaps possible
or him to have captured the nomlna-
.lon. But ho did not do this , and it is
suflleient to know that whatever might
uivo happened under different circum
stances , " "Mr. Blaine was from lirst to
ast entirely honest and sincere in his
determination not under any circum
stances to bo the candidate of the party.
Any further attempt to deprive him of
whatever merit may attach to his
straightforward conduct in this matter
will bo the grossest injustice.
Undoubtedly the name of Mr. Blaine
will never again bo seriously talked of
n connection with the presidency.
The influences which induced him
o withdraw this year will
) c stronger four years hence , if his lifo
shall bo extended to that time. Ilo
nay enter congress again , but the
greater probability is that lie will re-
nain in private lifo , free from the cares
uid the strain of public duties , guard-
ng his health and peacefully enjoying ,
as lie is in a position to do , his declin-
ng years. As no public man among
lis contemporaries lias been so aggres
sive and active as ho , so none has ox-
icrienced so much of the abuse and dis
paragement of political opponents. The
.iino has come when there should bo an
ibatomcnt , if not a total abandonment ,
of this treatment of Mr. Blaine , and
when ho should bo treated with fairness
ind justice. His great ability must bo
conceded by his bitterest enemy. His
superiority ns a leader no ono
will question. His career has not been
without serious faults and mistakes , but
lie has done his country notable service.
As ono of the foremost citizens of the
nation , who no longer stands in any
man's way , Mr. Blaine deserves to bo
treated fairly and justly , and especially
so with respect to his honest and
straightforward course in relation to the
Chicago convention. Wo shall watch
with some interest , but not without mis
givings , to discover whether tlio demo
cratic newspapers and their allies hayo
the manliness to render to Mr. Blaine
in this matter the justice that is due
< A Striking Contrast.
When the news reached Indianapolis
that the national -
tion had nominated General Harrison
for the presidency there was a develop
ment of popular enthusiasm such ns that
city had doubtless never wituessed be
fore. As quickly as possible the popu
lace thronged the strools and gave
themselves up to a most vigorous dem
onstration of gladness and gratifica
tion. By thousands the people made
their way to the law ofllce of the suc
cessful candidate to extend their con
gratulations , and subsequently besieged
his homo , sending up cheer upon cheer
in testimony of their endorsement of
the convention's action. Far into
the night tlio enthusiasm hold
on , making the occasion ono that
no present citizen of Indianapoli will
over forgot. It was a great spc n ancus
testimonial of the people to the popu
larity of General Harrison in the city of
his homo , where for thirty years ho lias
lived prominently in the sight of the
public. After such a demonstration no
one need question the standing of tlio
republican candidate in Indiana , 01
doubt that ho will swoop that state into
the republican column in November.
How was it less than throe weeks ago
when Mr. Cleveland was nominated at
St. Louis ? Was there any manifestation
of enthusiasm anywhere , except what
was worked up in the con von lion by the
aid of the oflluo holders who wcro
there In great force 'f Mr. Cleve
land was for many years
a resident of Buffalo , N. Y. , ani
got his political start there. But the
democrats of that city wcro not the
least bit enthused by his ronomlnation
or if they wore they did nol make anj
public show of Ihoir feeling. Tlioro is
a goodly number of democrats in Wash
ington , where Mr , Cleveland has re
sided for a little over throe years , but i
they wore at all gratified at the pros
pcct that ho might continue in the
presidency another term they omittei
to show it. There have been hero and
there a few sporadic efforts to arousi
democratic enthusiasm , but wo have
yet to hoar of ono thai has bcoi
a rcspoclablo success. From al
lhat has appeared thus far i
would seem that the domocralu
campaign la likely to bo rather tame
and uninteresting , though undoubt
edly a great effort will bo made bofon.
Its close to infuse Into it an appearance
of heartiness and enthusiasm.
The reason for the contrast in the
way the results of the two conventions
wore roOolvod la obvious. In ono cast
the candidate was the deliberate choice
of Iho free nnd untrammeled reproseu
tatlvos of the party , whllo in the other
the. candidate was a compulsory choice
ho representatives of the party having
no will in the matter and discharging n
merely formal and perfunctory duty.
Genuine enthusiasm under such cir
cumstances as controlled the
rcnotninatlon of Cleveland is
mposalblo , and every democrat who
vns at St. Louis knows that the demon-
tration in llio convention when the
iro-arrangctl nnd unalterable pro-
jrammo had been carried out was a sham
and a pretence. Much of the demo
cratic ardc-r that will bo carefully
vorked up during the campaign will beef
of llko character , BO far at least ns all
> ut the ofliccholdhig clement of the
rarly Is concern od.
IK the rush and excitement attending
, ho last few days of the Chicago con
vention our citi/.dns have almost ovor-
ooked the fact that the president ha1 ?
approved the act for the construction "of
v now bridge over the Missouri river
it Omaha. To Nebraska and especially
our city Iho sanction of congress niul
the executive for a third railroad bridge
nt this point is of the greatest cense
quence. It moans that within a very
short time railroads , which heretofore
invo been unable to obtain n
foothold at Omaha , will not
only make their termini hero , but
nako this city their base of operations
'roin ' whence feeders will radiate
through the west. Tlio question natur-
illy arises , what railroad system will
, ako advantage of the right to come into
Omaha ? There are any number of
) owcrful corporations knocking at out-
gates for entrance. Among them
bmaha can choose between the Rock
Tsland , the Duluth & Southwestern ,
said to bo a western extension of the
LacUawanna , nnd others. The charter
for the bridge was granted ton company
made up of homo capitalists. It is at
ihelr option either to build the bridge
with their own capital or
to interest a railroad in the project. In
either case the host interests of the clly
will be consulted. Of n now bridge ,
liowovcr , Omaha is assured. The fran
chise is too valuable a one to lapse by
default of its projectors , and there are
too many railroads malting strenuous
endeavors to come into our city to allow
the project to drag.
THE closing of tlie public schools for
the year takes place the 2Hh. ! As usual
the greatest interest centers about the
commencement exercises for the grad
uating class of the high school , which
takes place at Boyd'sopera house on the
evening of that clay. The graduating
class consists of thirty-three members ,
which is the largest number over gradu
ated at one time from the
high school. Next year , it is said
that this number will at least be doubled.
Tlio success and popularity of the high
school is duo to the admirable system
introduced by its present superintend
ent , ably seconded by an efficient corps
of teachers. Some branches pursued
are superfluous and ornamental , but no
ono can gainsay that the instruction is
thorough. At the commencement exor
cises Friday evening , our citizens will
show thi'ir appreciation by a full attend
ance at the opera house. The occasion
has always been made a red-letter day
in our community when citizens can
testify their interest in our schools.
THE last formality necessary to com
plete the programme arranged at Wash
ington and carried into olTcct at St.
Louis was observed yesterday at the
former city , when Mr. Cleveland was
informed that the duty he had de
manded of the national democratic con
vention had been duly and properly
performed. It must have been amusing
to Mr. Cleveland to note the solemnity
with which the committee-announced to
him the consummation of his plans , and
ho could hardly have failed to experi
ence a faonso of his superiority in the
evidence before him that ho had
brought a great party to his feet and
compelled it to obey his will. The com
mittee will go through a similar formal
ity with Mr. Thurman at Columbus , O. ,
on Thursday , when it is possible the
bandana veteran will give out some
thing in the nature of a keynote.
TllK commissioner of immigration of
Dakota 1ms issued a , valuable crop report
of that territory for the month of May.
The returns sent in by actual farmers of
the various counties eaa for that reason
bo rolled upon as fair and impartial
statements. The report gives the con
dition of wheat , corn , oats , flax and
barley in MO von ty-six counties. Although
crops are somewhat backward owing to
the late swing , they show in general a
condition which promises the largest
yield for years. There is a decrease of
the wheat urea as compared with last
year , and a marked increase of tlio acre
age planted in corn , oats and flax. Da
kota is pre-eminently a wheat country ,
as the report indicates. Tlio condition
of wheat is such as to warrant a nino-
tenths crop , while the prospects for corn
show a little over a half crop.

The convention was called to order In
Uoyd's ' opera house , at 2 o'clock in the after
noon , by Charles Ogden , chairman of the
executive committee , charged with the duty
of making arrangements for the holding of
the national meeting.
The attendance wns in no way In keeping
with the anticipations of the nuinaijcrs , who
had looked for a representation of Ufty clubs
and about we ven hundred delegates.
Mr. O den was received wltb cheers nnd
in his remark1 * congratulated the delegations
on their attendance , and that they had
gathered for the purpose of opening
a campaign which , although It
might not be entirely successful ,
yet he had no doubt would have the effect of
cutting down the republican majority in the
state of Nebraska. They intended to organ
ize in every county and city and show repub
licans that they were not unlit to take charge
of the affairs of the state and
administer the same so as to bo worthy of
the same appreciation which has been
awarded President Cleveland himself. They
would go before the people with issues which
reach to their very homes , reduce their taxes
and then ask them if they were not willing to
support the administration of a president
whoso oveo act while in ofllco had been to
their advantage and that of the country.
The Musical Union orchestra band played
BOino excellent music before the opening.

nitchic addressed the convention and worked
up considerable enthusiasm. His reference
to Harrison voting in congress favoring the
naturali/ation of Chinese was heartily ap
plauded and his remark that the nomination
of Harrison did not sit well on the Htomachs
of republicans created laughter. Mr. llitchio
expressed conmlciu'o that Harrison would bo
defeated , insisting that the democratic party
had taken possession of the reins of power
and were not going to let po of them. Ho
also predicted that If the democrats of Ne
braska got out nnd worked and voted they
could lay out the party which puts railioad
men into authority and railroads into power.
The committee on credentials made their
report , which showed that the convention
was made up principally of delegates from

marks. He praised the platform of the dem
ocratic party , and spoke complimentary of
Cleveland and Thurman , and suggested ag
gressiveness on the part of the democrats of
