The president has transmitted to con-
gross'with his approval , the bill to o'x-
cludo Chinese laborers from thd United
Stales , and gubmittcd therewith a long
message. Wo hue novcr doubted that
Mr. Cleveland would do this , simply be
cause it was nccofsary to complete the
gaino of politics which has boon at the
bottom of the whole recent movement
regarding Chinese immigration. Had
MY. Cleveland vetoed this bill ho would
have defeated hlsown j/nmo and brought
humiliation to every democrat in con
gress who has been doing his bidding
in the matter. It remains to bo been
whothcr ho will find in it any political
The bill is very thorough and com-
prfhensivo in its provisions , and if
rigidly enforced will put an end to the
immigration of Chinese laborers. That
it violates existing treaty obligations
no one , bo far as wo know , pretends to
deny. It was hurried through the house
without receiving half the consideration
that is given to scores of measures of
comparatively trilling consequence , ob
taining of course the unanimous sup
port of the democrats of that body ,
simply on the rumor that the
Chinese government had rejected
the treaty negotiated last spring. The
senate showed a better sense of the im
portance ot the matter , and the bill was
( lcla\ed some days in that body , but
finally passed there before the govern
ment was officially advised of the rejec
tion of the treaty. Indeed it is said the
Chinese government only decided not
to ratify the treaty after learning of the
senate's action , self-respect leaving that
government no other alternative than to
reject the treaty.
Tlio principal defense of the exclusion
bill offered in congress was that every
government has the right to pro-
toot its people against an olTonslvo
immigration. The proposition is doubt
less unassailable , but there is a decent
and respectful way of securing such
protection which nations observe that
have some regard for their obligations
and for international comity. It cer
tainly cannot be maintained that this
was the way pursued in the passage of
the exclusion bill , and the attitude in
ich it places the country , of having
ogislatcd in violation of treaty obliga-
ions , is made the more unfortunate by
ho universal knowledge that politics
ivas at the bottom of the whole proceed-
ng. Everybody knows that legislation
f this character would not have been
rushed through in any other than a
n-csidential year , however imminent
he danger to be averted , and we shall
not as a people gain in the respect of
, ho world by having to confess this.
Mr. Cleveland's inoesago is in some re
spects adroit , and is perhaps aa good an
apology for the legislation ho has ap
proved as could bo made. But it docs
not prove that there was a danger that
rendered it immediately necessary , or
that it was a proper and wise thing for
this government to take a stop in vio-
ation of treaties which it had sought ,
: ind which have secured to the coun-
, ry commercial advantages of
no small importance. Whether
China will attempt any form
of retaliation is uncertain. It has been
said that the Chinese are concerned
only for the gains , and that for thcso
they will make any sacrifice of inde
pendence and self-rcsnect. If this is a
correct description of their character
they will porliaps do nothing to show
their displeasure with the action of this
government , at least to the extentof in
terfering with the commercial privi
leges now enjoyed. The new law , when
it goes into effect , will doubtless bo
rigidly enforced , and if so there will be
no further additions after the 1st of
next January to the number of Chinese
laborers in the United States. It is to
bo hoped this question will now bo
dropped as an issue in politics.
lll-Poiimlcd Reports.
There have been reports from time to
time , growing more numerous within
the past ten days , that there was a lack
of harmony in the republican national
committee ; that its chairman , Senator
Quay , was not pleased with the course
of the campaign in some respects , and
particularly with Mr. Blaino's contri
butions to it ; that the friends of General
Harrison were feeling quito sorely to
ward Mr. IJlaino , and that the candi
date himself was not entirely pleased.
] n short , that there was generally a
great deal of grumbling and displeas
ure , of which Mr. iMainc was said to be
the principal cause.
The conference hold in New York on
Sunday , at which Mr. Quay and Mr.
Bhune , and where a number of other
prominent republicans were present , is
a sufficient answer to the reports ol
want of harmony and good fouling. A
this conference , which appears to have
had reference chiefly to arranging the
western speaking tour of Mr. Bhiino
the bcht podaiblo ( spirit prevailed , anil
the feeling expressed was that of full
confidence in republican success. Mr ,
Quay and Mr. Ttlaino held a privati
conference and parted with the utmost
There is no dissension in the repub
lican camp , unless all signs are mislead
ing. Tlio party loaders are working
shoulder to shoulder in complete har
mony , and rank and file are earnest urn
enthusiastic , and the campaign is progressing

There is every reason to believe it will
continue so to the end , and that the re
suit llvo weeks from to-day will bo entirely
tirely satisfactory.

The struggle over railroad commis
elonerahipa in the neighboring state o
Iowa affords some food for reflection
The candidates , while nominally repub
lican and democrat , arc essentially anti
monopoly and its reverie : The popub
lican party haa chosen three strong
anti-monopoly men. The railroads im
mediately combined and offered t <
throw all their united strength in fnvoi
of the democratic candidates gonorall ;
if that party would nominate for thi
railroad cominisslonorships parsons sat
isfaotory to the corporations.
This is only a repetition of the expo
rlenco of California , where the railroad
have pooled all their forces in the stati
convention : ) of both parties to dictuU
thu nolniimtloiiH of their Creatures 01
'tho railroad commission , and when
they fal ( to control the candidates of
ono parly they throw their infiuondo at
the election to the other. The outcome
Is that usually two out of three railroad
commissioners are railroaders , and the
state remains at the moroy of the monop
olies. The only safe policy for the poo-
pie Is direct regulation and restriction
by law , with the courts as a tribunal to
punish extortion and discrimination.
Qnnrnntlno A aliiHt Tramp * .
During the past month the city of
Omaha entertained for a period varying
from ono to thirty days with free board
and lodging about six hundred and
thirty-five gentlemen , irrespective of
race , color or previous condition. For
this display of hospitality , the taxpay
ers have footed bills amounting to sev
eral thousand dollars. In other words ,
of the thirteen hundred arrests made
by the police for September , three hun
dred and twenty were for drunkenness
and three hundred and fifteen for
vagrancy. These figures speak for
themselves. They show that fully ono-
lalf of the arrests made arc drunkards
ind vagrants , for the support of whom
he rity is taxed annually many Ihou-
ands of dollars. It is a disgrace to our
council that it saddles this burden on
ho backs of taxpayers. Long ago pro
visions for a work-house or a rock-pile
ihould have been made by which
, his class could at least bo
nado to profit the city something.
The conn oil , it is true , passed an ordi-
iiince to compel vagrants to work oul
heir fines on Ihe street. But as it is
only a half-hearted measure , ic has not
boon enforced , and not likely to bo. It
s the plain duty of the council to give
this matter its immediate attention and
oliovo taxpayers from supporting
nblo-bodiod tramps. It is safe to pro-
dicl that a sentence to the work-house
ivill have its salutary effect , not so much
n the value of the labor that can be got
out of vagrants and bummers as in the
'eduction ' of the number of this class of
tax-eatoi\s. A notice to tramps that
they must work out their board will bo
is effective in keeping them away from
Omaha as a shotgun quarantine.
Tlio Deullnc of INilyennty.
The majority report of the Utah com
mission , a few days ago submitted to the
secretary of the interior , shows that
indor the Strict enforcement of the
anti-polygamy laws polygamy is
steadily declining , and that it cannot
bo a great while before it is entirely
abandoned in Utah. Last year there
were but eight indictments for polyg
amy , conviction being secured in half
of these cases. Not only is it evident
that polygamy is declining , but it is
also plain that the power of the Mormon
hierachy in the territory has been for
ever broken , and that they have come to
clearly realize ibis. The fact Ihal there is
a movement on foot to establish new
con tors of Mormon'colonization in ter
ritory outside the jurisdiction of the
United States , is a confession of the
hierarchy of the hopelessness of their
battle against the national authority
sustained by public opinion. Certainly
these who believe in the wisdom and
juslico of the laws against polygamy
have reason to bo satiblied with the re-
The report of the majority of the com
mission renews the recommendation
that Utah should not bo admitted to the
tin ion until such time as the Mormon
people shall show by their future
acts that they have abandoned
polygamy in good faith , and
not then until an amendment
shall have been made to the constitu
tion of the United States prohibiting
the practice of polygamy. Doubtless
there would bo no dillicully in securing
the approval by the legislatures of all
the states of such an amendment , but
its necessity is not apparent. When
ever the Mormon people give satis
factory evidence that they have re
nounced polygamy and tlio territory if
admitted to statehood , there will be no
danger thereafter that polygamy wouh'
have a new growth , because Iho increase
of the population hostile to this practice
would render such a growth impossible
and il would bo a question of only n
very little time wlien Mormon in flu
onoo in the affairs of government wouh :
entirely ceaso. At present the Mormon
increase is not rapid , and it is more
than probable it will bo less so hereaf
ter under the operation of a sevoroi
scrutiny in the matter of immigration ,
even if there shall not bo passer
stronger laws than we now have for the
regulation of immigration. Nor is
there danger of an atlompt to plant
polygamy in any other territory of the
United States. The suggestion of a
constitutional amendment prohibiting
polygamy does not appear , therefore ,
to have any sound reason , for when this
practice is once stamped out in Utah i
will permanently disappear from tin
country. The indications are that the
lime is not remote when this will be
accomplished. When a people discover
as the Mormons evidently have , the fu
tility of combatting the national author
itysubmission may bo reluctant , but i
is certain to como. The further decline
of polygamy in Utali may therefore hi
expected to bo rapid , and its final ox
Unction cannot be far off.

The police orders lo vacale all dis
orderly houses in the Third ward wes
of Tenth street is an effort in the direc
tion of moral reform from which tin
decent portion of the community is not
likely to derive much benefit. The
( social evil always will exist in large
cities and any effort to stamp it out o
ono locality only transfers the infectioi
into other localities. The more the po
lice meddle with dissolute women , the
greater the demoralization amont
the police force. Like the arm ;

Well , lot us goo. For the week end-
ng September U7 , Chicago received
ovcnty-two thousand cattle , Kansas
City thirty-six thousand , Omaha
ixtcen thousand , St. Louis cloven
housaml n.d : New York ton thousand ,
'or the same period , Chicago shipped
Aventy-lhreo thousand cattle , holding
about fifty thousand head for homo con-
umpllon and bcof packing. Kansas
City shipped twcnty-llvo thousand , ro-
ainlng ten thousand head , while
Omaha shipped eleven thousand , using
about five thousand head to supply the
lomo beef packing industry. In com-
KU-ISOII , therefore , with thcso loading
cattle markets of the country , Omaha
aukrt third both as a shipping and a ,
) eof packing point. There is every
thing to bo proud of in this position.

mvo happened oven if there never had
jcon a Brooklyn sugar trust. The
causes are obvious. For the past twenty
years the owners of sugar estates in the
West Indies have barely made a living.
They have received nothing for their
land , nothing for their machinery and a
bare living for their personal supervis
ion of sugar making. Not only is this
the case in the West Indies , but it is
equally true of all other places where
the cane is cultivated. The sugar plan
ters have fared no better than have the
beef raisers whoso cattle ranches have
for several years past been unproduc

that the "result Is n most gratifying one.

"The nomination of W. J. Council , of
Omaha , as candidate for congress from the-
First district , " snys tlio Liberty Journal ,
"moans republican success by the full party
majority in the First district , at least. Mr.
Counull is a man of unquestionable ability ,
of irreproachable character , and a straight
republican. Tno contest for the nomination
was a warm one , but was conducted in the
best of spirit. It was an open fight , charac
terized by no unfair methods , auu the result
was endorsed with genuine earnestness by
the defeated candidates nnd their friends.
The nomination of Mr. Council insures a re
publican congressman from the big llrst. "
The Humphrey Independent remarks : "Of
course the republicans are expected to tum
ble over each other to assist Secretary of
State Laws to a re-election to office , but they
won't ' do it , and the result of the November
election will bo similar to that when Church
Howu went down for bolnij subservient to
the will and wish of the railroads. Ono of
our business mon ordered a smiill bill of
goods from New York city. The freight
bill showed the following proportion ; From
Now York to Omaha , $ } . 'J2 ; from Omaha to
Humphrey , 0,55 , making the rate about
twenty times as much iu Nebraska as east
of tlio Missouri river , and yet Secretary
Laws is in no hurry to assist iu relieving the
people. "
Mr. Council's nomination was very satis
factory to the \Vahoo Wasp and it believes
"his nomination to bo the strongest that
could have been made , nnd one that insures
the election of a republican congressman
from the first district of Nebraska by a good
round majority. Hon.V. . J. Council will ba
a strong candidate because ho Is the candi
date of the people. In the political struggles
in this state between the people and the rail
road corporations in the past , Council has al
ways been found upon the side of the people
as against the corporation monoiwly. In his
practice as an attorney it has always fallen
to his lot to prosecute and not to defend the
railroads in their encroachments upon private
rights and damage to personal interests. No
charge of railroad nttornoyship or 'corpora
tion capper' can attach to him. Ho is a clean
handed candidate In every respect. "
The Grand Island Independent makes the
following political observations : "When a
man is a candidate for a public omchil posi
tionhis public acts form a legitimate subject
for discussion and full consideration , for the
reason that by thcso acts ono must weigh a
man's Illness for the position to which hn as

Republicanism nnd Monopolies.
. < < fhnfr'n for October.
The government Is stronger than it
was a half century ago , but has not this
increase of strength been at the ex
pense of republicanism ? Wo claim that
the United States is Ihe freest country
in Iho world the only country except
Switzerland in which the people have
equal rights. Equal rights before the
law are indeed possessed by everybody
hero , but are there not combinations of
interests which prevent the full play of
natural rights , which hold in check , if
they do not destroy , individual enter
prise ? In what other country can bo
found such companies as have been or
ganized in the United States for the
purpose of controlling Iho manufacture ,
the transportation and the price of
goods ? Where can bo found an organi
zation like Ihe Standard Oil company ,
which absolutely conlrols Ihe market of
an article for which there is an immeiibo
and constant demand , nnd .stamps out
competition ; or oven such companies as
have been formed to regulate the pro
duction of iron and bteol and coal ? In
what other country do manufacturers
who are protected by tariffs against for
eign eonipelilion , combine by trusls or
olhor agencies to advance or sustain
prices nnd prevent domestic competi
tion ? There is no country of which f
have any kiunylodgo in which business
of all descriptions is so steadily falling
into fewer nnd fewer hands , in which
combinations are KO powerful and indi
viduals so powerless , ns the United
States no country in which Iho solu
tion of the labor question may bo more
diflicult. Wo have yet to learn that
there may bo as little pei-homil freedom
under republican institutions as under
monarchies , and that the best etlorts of
all good citizens should bo to prevent
the trroat republic from being a frco
country in name only. That these
otlorts will not bo wanting , I have an
abiding faith. Congreas has the power ,
by opening tlio way for freer trade with
other nations , to destroy most of the ex
isting monopolies , and Ibis power will
ere long bo exerted.
