hey bore their banner. They wore preceded
by Marshal Juuies Donnelly. A wagon fol-
owed with an immense transparency , the

The Union Pacific band was to have accom
panied the Third ward club , but duilng the
day the director of the band received n com-
ntiuication from some of its members saying
that they would not participate. The reason
jiven by the band was that there was n scab
jnnd emplojed and union men would not Join
them In the inarch.
iVs tno parade passed Ed. Uothery's place
on the corner of Eleventh and Haruoy streets ,
where the Third ward club Joined them ,
: hcro was a great display if Chinese
lanterns and llieworks. In front of
Itothery's place was a sign , saying :
"Graiuiimi's Shoes Will Soon Fit Johnnie. "
At the corner of Fourteenth nnd Fnrnain

Union Domoeratio club of Omnha. The
Sixth Ward club , 209 men strong , came next ,

encircled by bandannas , was the distinguish
ing feature of the Fifth Ward club. The
Eighth Ward club marehcd after , boarini ?

Cleveland and McShanc. Alter them came
the Eighth Ward Danish club.
Almost every man in the procession car-
i led a coal oil torch , nnd tno S\moset : club
burned colored lights all along the line of

Bro. shot oil a number of Roman candles
when the procession passed the store. The
crowd cheered loudly at various pumtson the

scattered along the line of march , one of

Mr. MeShano nnd his Iricnils , among
whom wore C. V. Gallagher , AV. A. Puxton
and others , accompanied by his family , were
seated on the verandah ol his house.
J. T. Mnhoney , the orator of the evening ,
on whom devolved the task of delivering the
address of welcome , was introduced , and
spoke substantially as follows :
The Honorable John A. MeShnno : We ,
your neighbors nnd fellow clti7cns , with
whom , nnd for whom , you have labored
faithfully and well these ninny years , call
upon you this evening [ applause ! to express
our approval of your course as representative
in congress , and to welcome you homo from
the scene of your latest efforts. Wo assure
you of our confidence in the experience ,
ability and integrity which wo believe so well
equip you for tbo discharge of the duties de
volving upon the chief magistrate of the state.
The people of Nebraska , who are called
upon annually to contribute their millions of
hard-earned money to the national treasury
in excess of the legitimate needs of the gov
ernment , approve your labors to relieve tax
ation. Wo who nro compelled to pay tribute
to eastern trusts , monopolies nnd magnates ,
approve your action to cut them down. The
people of Nebraska , whcsa IcgHlatarj a few
years ago , memormli/ed congress to allow
the prairie farmer to buy his barbed wire
free of duty , can bo consistent with them
selves , and true to their interests only in en
dorsing your efforts to enable every farmer
nnd every worKman to build his farmhouse
without paying excessive taxes.
Mr. Mahoney spoke at lencth In regard to
Cleveland , culogizim ; his administration nnd
policy , and said ho believed that republics
should not bo less grateful than other gov
ernments , nnd that they approved of the gen
erous patriotism , which , rising above
party considerations , proposed n pen
sion for the widow of a bravo
soldier. The rent of the speech was
complimentary to Mr. MeShano. and was re
ceived with approval by the long line of
torch-lighted democrats infrontof tlio house.
Mr. McShuno then stopped to the front
nnd was Introduced , during which there was
much cheering. Seine enthusiastic man in
the crowd yelled : "What's the matter with
MeShano i" in answer to which went up the
howl , "He's till right. " Mr. MeShano spoke
as follows :
Mr. Chairman nnd Fellow Citizens : I am
suffering this evening from a very severe
cold , so much so that I nm hardly able to
speak. I thank you most earnestly for this
generous expression of your kind regard ,
coming ns it does , from men with whom I
have lived for many years. It touches mo
with a special sense of pleasure and grati-
ttulo , nnd 1 am sure that I shall never bcablo
to repay it. Hence I can only extend to you
my most sincere nnd profound thanks.
Omaha , the most growing nnd prosperous
city In our country , is known through
out the length and breadth of
the land. For six months I have
been busy at the sent of government ,
nnd have neglected my personal affairs to
serve the people of this great state. The
growth nud prosperity of Omaha and Ne
braska is the marvel of the ago. If , in the
work performed , I have been n factor which
has in any way resulted to the advantage of
our people I ntn happy , but above all will I
bo especially grutillcd in consulting the good
will and esteem of our people. Again , good
people , I welcome you to the hospitality of
my homo.
Someone in the crowd proposed three
cheers nnd a tiger for John A. McShuno ,
which wcro given with good will , after
which she long line started on its march
down town. There were estimated to bo
8,003 people in line.

around this morning discussing the action of
the city council last ovcnlng regarding the
gambling question. The gambling houses
which have been closed for n couple of
months wcro opened on last Friday by order
of the mayor. Last night the council , by a
vote of 0 to ! ! , decided not to allow gambling ,
and ordered Marshal White to enforce the
ordinance. Mayor Irwin instructed the
marshal not to enforce the law , and Marshal
White will obey the mayor. Probably the
result will bo that White will get discharged.
Mayor Irwin openly avowed that if the gam
bling holes are classed ho will clo o every

impression is gaining ground among the

gradually becoming disinclined to refuse the

is found in the superiority of the Lobel

that troops armed with magazine rifles of

shall run no risk of being revealed. The
military authority of La Franco doubts the
wisdom of this order and thinks that the
simultaneous use of different rifles will tend
only to confusion. Beside this it is
urged that if only the old typo were
used in the maneuvers the troops
would fail to realize in a clear
and positive manner that the old tactics are
entirely revolutionized. Besides producing
no smoke the detonations of the new

Cannot Control Competition.
WxstiixoTON , Sopt. IU. The inter-stato
comiucic.3 commisslan to day , through Chair-
nan Coolcy , filed an opinion In the matte ref
of the Chicago , St. Paul & Kansas City rail
road company. This oompauy , In Juno last , the commission that owing to the
iction of competing Hues covering rates bo-
.ween . Chicago nnd St. Paul and Mlnneapo-
Is , it had boon oblige ! to rcdueo its own
rates between th'iso pjiuts below the rates
which it could afford to accept between in
termediate points , so that upon its' line there
would bo greater charges made upon the
shot tor haul than upon the longer in the
same direction , uud it stated that if com-
ilnlut should bo made of this it would undur-
tuko to Justify its action under the intcr-stiito
commerce law. The commission thereupon
made an eider for u hearing to bo hold at
Dubuque , lit which this company would bo
called upon to Justify its action , and for noti
fication , so that other companies interested ,
nnd also any commercial organisation or any
other party desiring to bo heard might
have 'tin opportunity. The hearing was
accordingly had , anil on the hearing the
respondent coinpiny gave evidence tending
to .show that the action it had taken was
forced upon it by the Burlington Northern
railroad company , which made a rate be
tween Chicago , St. Paul and Minneapolis below -
low that which would bo compensatory , and
below what it was possible lor tiny com
peting lines to make without actual loss , and
it produced evidence tending strongly to
show that the Burlington tc Northern rates
were not paving operating expenses. The
Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul road ulsoup-
pcaied unit ofloied similar evidence , taking
a similar position to that of the respondent
company. The Burlington & Northern , on
the other hand , was represented by its gen
eral olllcors , and insisted that its rates were
remunerative , and showed that it was ac
cepting them without making at any point n
greater charge upon the shorter haul. Tlio
evidence that its receipts were sufllcicnt
to cover operating expenses was
not very strong' and it clearly
appeared that for Uio current year It was
lulling behind. The respondent company in
sisted that the commission should cither
sanction the rates it was making to intcr-
mediate stations between its termini , which
were rates fair in themselves , or that it
should order the Burlington it Northern to
inciease its rules between Chicago mid St
Paul uud Minneapolis so as to make them
Just and reasonable to the carriers them
selves , us well as to the public. In other
words to make them f.nrlv remunerative. It
was also insisted that the position of the
inter-state eommureo law , that all charges
shall bo reasonable and Just , was not com
plied with unless they were reasonable and
just considered from the htaiWpomt of a rail-
inad company as well as from that of the
general public. The Burlington & Northern'
it was therefore contended , was m constant
violation of the inlor-suto oomiii"rco law in
mal.inj'iate- low that neither itself nor
its rivals could accept tiiem without a steady
and destructive dram upon Its resources.
The principal question , therefore , raised
before the commission at the hearing was
wnether it hud power to compel the Burling
ton Jit Northern to increase its rates to a ro-
munerutivo point if they were found to bo
below that point. This question is disiissed
in the opinion. The commission disclaims
possessing any such pjwur. It holds that
congress , in the provision requiring all rates
to bo reasonable ami Just , was legislating for
the protection of the general public , and not
lor the pi election of tuilroad ounpamcs
against the action of their own managers , or
against the unreasonable competition ot
rivals , and that it was never in the contem
plation of congress that it should bo within
the power of the commission to order nn In
crease in rates which , in its opinion , ouglit to
have been made higher than they wero. In
this respect it was supposed that the rail
road companies had ample remedy in
their own hands in the authority which
they possessed to make rates , and that the
protection needed from Uio government was
the protection of these who would bo com
pelled to pay the rates that should thus bo
The further question was discussed
whether the fact that the Burlington &
Northern made rates which wcro unreason
ably low , made out the dissimilar circum
stances and condition under the fourth sec
tion of tlio act which would entitle the re
spondent company to make u greater charge
ou the shorter haul. The respondent con
tended that if the commission could not con
trol the malting of destructively low rates
the competition of railroads which were sub
ject to the act to regulate commerce was just
us hnrm'ul us was the competition of vessels
or the competition of railroads not subject to
the act , and therefore the competition of the
Burlington Ss Noithorn at the terminal
points of Iho respondent's road established
such dissimilar circumstances nnd conditions
as Justified its charging less at such terminal
points than at intermediate stations. The
commission does not assent to this view. Tlio
showing of respondent is merely that of u
perverse rival which makes unreasonably
low rates to the termini of its road , but if
this makes out the dissimilar circumstances
ami conditions intended by the fourth sec
tion ol thu act , then any ono railroad mana
ger in the 1101 th west may , nt pleasure , by u
foolish tariff sheet , give to ono or moro points
of railroad competition preference and ad
vantage over all others , and this would de
feat ono of the leading purposes had iu view
in adopting the net , which was to put an cud
to discriminations which before wcro so com
mon between different localities.
The act itself would therefore , as to ono of
its leading purposes , bo dependent on thu
will of any bimilo railroad manager who ,
from policy or perversity , might sco fit to
nullify it. Tlio effect of the doctrine con
tended for on the part of the respondent
would bo that railroad companies , if they
cheese to do so , may nt will build up a srntrlo
point in tlio northwest to a preponderating
and conclusive ascendency at the expense ol
all others , and by giving it rates
which , in proportion , would bo n
mere fraction of what other local
ities must pay , might fix Its ascendancy
with little regard to natural or other advan
tages. It will not do to say that rate * to inter-
inedintn stations are Just nnd fair in and of
themselves. Tno question of what nro Just
nnd fair rates is ahvay relative. Low rates
to ono plaeo may not bo Just and
fair if still lower rates are given to u rival
Tlio commiss.on therefore finds and adjudges
that the transportation of freights by the
respondent upon Its load from Chicago to the
St Paul , Mlnneupolisaml Minnesota transfer ,
and from its not them terminus to Chicago ,
is made under substantially similar circum
stances and conditions to these under which
likn freights arw transported on the same
line from the same initial point or points in
the same direction lo Intermediate stations ,
nnd , such being tlio ease , that the greater
charges which the respondent makes to such
iiitorniedlato stations nro illegal. An order
will bo entered that the respondent cease
and desist from making such illegal charges.
Incidentally , in diRCUssi < u tlio case , the
commission say that thedo not understand
on what ground the Burlington & Northern ,
while Insisting that the rates from Chicago
to St. Paul are remunerative , can Justify
charging the satno rates ror one-third or
two-thirds the distance. Upon its own show
ing the-,0 rates seem to bo excessive , ' 1 ho
commission does not discuss the question
how far water transportation may Justify a
creator charge on the shorter haul In any
case , tlmro being In the case no fuels lo make
Iho discussion relevant.

tion of thejail and the iialuro of Iho coiillno-
uent , it is moro than lilcelv that the line will
bo assessed. Miss Darrah has been a
charge of the county hospital for the pasl
, wo months or moro.
Matt Carroll , charged with robbery from
the person of May Ellis , was the llrst case
called for trial. Judge Baldwin had been ap-
( ointed to defend Carroll , but owing to other
justness it was impossible for him to look
iftcr the case , and the court once moro put
nto olTcct the rule ho laid down Tuesday ;
ihul ho would nol appoint anyone to defend
1 criminal ut the criminal's suggestion. Ho
iccordingly named Judge Felker to defend
Jarroll. An effort was niudo on the part of
ho attorney for the defendant to have the
tearing of the case pjstponod unlll after
linner to allow him an opportunity to talk
