The peculiar circumstances which have loft Omaha with no regis tration lists will aggravate the evil of illegal voting. The election on the Oth of November is of vital interest to the people and candidates of both parties. There are Indications that tlio contest will bo close nnd exciting. Un scrupulous men will take advantage of this state of affairs to influence and.con- nlvo at frauds at the ballot. Thoro'will be no checks or restrictions to prevent illegal voting except the vigilance ol citizens and the integrity of the election boards. For that reason the countj commissioners should select men ol irreproachable character , and men familiar with the machinery of elec tions. The purity of the ballot is a serious question and ono of great ro > Bponsibillty. THE intor-Btnto commerce commission has taken a stop forward to shield tin pooulo against the oppression of rail > roads. The commission has taken the ground that it is empowered to call be fore its tribunal any railroad question for decision which in its opinion Is a men ace to the interests of the country. In i recent decision the dictum was laidilowt tliut the commission's duty was to lool out for the citizen as the weaker party as corporations are qulto able to taki care of themselves. In accordance will this view the commission , in advance o any complaint or appeal , has just do cldcd that the rates on transconllnonta business \yoro excessive and dlspropor tlonato , and has ordered the railroad concerned to modify the inequalities ii their tariff and classification. The po eltion of the commission on this poiu commends Usolf to fair minded men , I protects the 'poopla from the first am gives'tho railroads to unddrstnnd tha they tnust conform at once to the inter UUo law In good faith. ' . HIS FIRST President .Cleveland made his'first mblic appearance in the 'campaign on Saturday , when ho viewed the business ncn's parade in Now York. Propura- ioim for this event had been going on or weeks , nnd it appears to have been a Ittrpo and enthusiastic demonstration , lolwllhstunding the interference of a icavy rain. A great popular demon- tration is , however , possible nt any imo in Now York , and the presence of ho president was of Itself sulllclont to all out tens of thousands of people who Imply had a curiosity to gratify , with out having the slightest sympathy with .he . spirit of the occasion. Still it was a no table event , nnd ono from which the demo crats may properly derive nonio cn- couragoment. The apparently cordial ncetinir between Mr. Cleveland and ilr. Hewitt will doubtless bo regarded us u reassuring incident , while the mndshakingof the mayor and the Tarn- nany candidate for that ofllcc , "across the president , not across the bloody chasm , " as the former expressed it , vas not without significance. Demo crats will readily conclude from those circumstances that harmony has been ostorcd to the party in New York , nnd ve expect to find the organs throughout the country insisting that biich is the ) laln lesson of the demonstration and its conspicuous incidents. Obviously it a would have greatly lolpod to such a conclusion if one other democratic leader , the governor of Now Yorlc , had boon prcbent on this occa sion , and notwithstanding the fact that Mr. Hill telegraphed that it was not micticablo for him to attend , and ulbo , ho assurance that the relations be tween the president and hinibolf were , ind always had been , of the most agree able and satisfactory character , it is im possible not to believe that had Gov ernor Hill very much desired to bo present ho could have done so. It wag not an impromptu affair , and ho had knowledge of it in ample time to make his arrangements to attend without in the least interfering with his campaign elsewhere. More over , It was felt to bo of thu highest im portance that there should bo a personal manifestation of good feeling between the president and the governor on this occasion , and it is known that the dem ocratic managers were most solicitous that they should meet. In view of these tacts can the statement of Governor Hill regarding the relations between the president and himself fairly be re garded as sincere , and docs not the ab- fecnce of the governor clearly militate against the conclusion that all ia har monious in the ranks of the New Yorlf democracy ? / This carefully arranged demonstra tion will not have the hoped for effect. It was largely theatrical , and the man who should have played ono of the most important roles was not there , while as to the chief actor ho simply posed. On the whole wo cannot sec why the event should materially im prove the democratic situation in No York. DESCEXDTKQ TO PERSONALITIES Thus far the campaign has been o coptionally free from personalities. II was entered upon by both parties withf determination to discuss principles ant ] policies , rather than men , to appeal tc the intelligence and reason of the peO' pic , rather than to their passions. The personal abuse and defamation of the lust campaign had disgusted the bcttci sentiment of the country and disgracet us as a people before the world. It wa > felt that there had been enough of thai sort of thing for at least a generation , and that the time had como to show that the American people could conduct a national campaign on a different basis , There was until now every reasor to believe that this spirit would prevai to the end , but the good record made received a blot , cast upon it by a demo cratic leader and a member of the ad > ministration. No other man who has contributec anything to the campaign has blunderec bo seriously for his party as Mr. Don M Dickinson , the pobtmastcr general When it is remembered that Dickinsot was called to the cabinet because lu was believed to be a shrewd and judi ciotiH politician , who would bo of grea service in promoting the chances of the presidontfor u second termhis utter fail ure in the part ho has played in this can vasa is surprising. Wohavo heretofore discussed his extraordinary effort ti carry the west against New England and the whole country has been mad ( familiar with it by Mr. Blaine , wh < convincingly demonstrated the absurd ity of Mr. Dickinson' * ) statements o fact and the monstrous character of hii position. A wiser man than the Michi gan politician would have remained silent after his blunders had boon exposed - posed , but Mr. Dickinson comes bad with an attempt to vindicate- himself nnd ns a part ot this hopeless task makes a savage personal attack upoi Mr. Ulaine. There is little if any necessity fo giving extended consideration t anything that Mr. Dickinsoi may say , personal or other wise. lie has shown himsel a man of such narrow views , of such tin patriotic Bontimonts , of such demugogii motives , and withal BO much a syco phant , that nothing ho may hereaftei say can have any influence with intelligent gent and fair-minded men. It is tin right of a man to be an ardent partisan but the partisainsm of Mr. Dickinson i of so bitter a character that could i prevail we should soon have sections o the country warring against each otho and the nation divided against itself He is an unsafe man to bo in public life or would bo if ho had the ability t exert an extended influence. So far a his attack on Mr. Blnlno is concomoi it will bo harmless both to iU objec and to the republican party. Th extravagantly fulsome flatterer of Mr Cleveland is incapable of framing an , abuse that can hurt Mr. Ulaino. Th man who has shown how well ho cai piny the sycophant will have uo succoo in the role ot a denunciator , All nun can readily understand'the incentive'ii both cases , and in neither ls.it creillta bio to Mr. Dickinson. . Among nil th politicians who have damaged the ! party and .themselves in the prcson campaign , the Michigan member of Mr. Cleveland's cabinet heads the list. nia auxs AXD ma SHIPS. The effete monarchies of Europe are competing with the most intense rivalry n the production of heavily nrmorcil ships provided with monstrous gUns. Much has been said about the latest Italian war vessels , and still more about the English , and there nro men who contemplate the Dulliound the Bcnbow with a sort of panic fear. The annual report of Admiral D. D. Porter runs very much in the same groove of .hought , and hid opinion clearly stated H that the true policy of this country is to build fast cruisers and heavy armor cluds Hlce the Puritan , Maine and Texas , tfo matter how perfectly we dcvolopo dynamite shells and torpedoes he claims that the necessity for thu.se vessels will btlll exist , "for the ingenuity of man will contrive some plan to protect the ships from the annoyances of the small Try. " Giving all duo weight to so great an authority as Admiral Porter it is difiieult to agrco with him. It is clear that ho advises a path which is illogical and can lead to no result , and has been led astray both by protossional nnd per- ionnl feelings. As the question is ono not of theory , but of expenditure , it is a matter of duty to raise a protest against the acceptance of his views. Ho advises n middle path , and there is no middle- path possible. It is a question of urmorclads as heavy as the Bcnbow , the Nile and the Trafalgar , or of swift cruisers armed with dynainito guns. No pretense is made that the Puritan and the other vessels are of the same class as the largest English and Italian vessels , and though formidable in themselves they are only small fry to such. It seems strange that Admiral Porter and others of his school have not recogni/.ed the fact that the ono hun dred and twenty ton guns of the mon ster vessels are only formidable against fixed points. .They . will carry a distance of eleven miles , beyond any doubt , and will , therefore , play havoc with any city which they are per mitted to approach. But why should they bo permitted. At sea it would not bo possible for any lookout to discover a vessel at such a distance , and any battle which the Duilio or Benbow light on the rolling waves must neces sarily bo within the range of fast cruis ers armed with dynamite guns. The history of naval warfare has'shown that the small fry have always the advantage. The shipa of the great Armada , which , when compared with the English fleet , were as the Benbow to ono of our fast cruisers , were utterly unable to cope with their swiftly maneuvered antago nists. Tlio distance at which any naval battle is fought is decided not by the range of the guns but by the speed of the vessels , and the fastest chooses the distance which is the most advantageous. With all due deference to Admiral Porter's opinion such vessels as the Bonbow will only bo chopping blocks whenever they have to fight on the high seas with a nimbler foe. The result will surely bo that all armor-clads with enormous guns will bo relegated to the defense of harbors and will bo rocogni/.ed ns useless for pur poses of attack. They will simply be floating batteries costing twenty timea what they are worth. The republican policy of declining to plunge the nation into heavy expenditures for a navy because - cause there was obviously a transition period ahead was most sound and wise , It galled the admirals and commodores but it saved the country from spending money to no purpose. The inclination which the democratic administration has shown to wasto'largo sums iu heavj arinor-clads will not bo approved by the nation oven though endorsed by Ad miral D. D. Porter. A COKTEMi'OUAHY , remarking upon the fact that the defaulting treasurer ol the city of Cleveland was known as i "good fellow , " says it docs not takt much stock in men of that class foi public positions of trust. "Tho theory , ' it observes , "that a largo heart goof with an open hand ; that nobility o : character is indicated by u knack o : telling stories , moro or less unclean ; that manliness is revealed by extrava gance and depravity ; that the kindest- hearted people and the whitest souh and the truest friends are the to pore and profligates ; this theory wo say , does not match will our experience. " It is unquestion ably too generally the practic < to prefer men of the "good follow' class , to which the Cleveland trousuroi distinctively belonged , for publio posi tions , and the misfortune of ourpolitica system is that the practice is likelj to continue. The sharp , bright , generous ous follow , cordial to everybody and especially liberal with "tho boys , " has i decided advantage in American poll tics , and probably always will have Yet sterling worth nnd character is no wholly neglected. As to Axworthy , IK was really something more than a gooc fellow. Ho had demonstrated marked ability * as a business man , and sucl sporting tendencies as ho hac were kept under a discree restraint. His fall was du < to the common American greed whicl leads so many men into speculatlor even nftor their possessions should be regarded as ample , and the lesson to be derived from his case is not altogothni against good fellowship. Nevertheless the proposition IB sound that in select ing a man for a publio position of trust hid qualities as a good follow should have very little weight in his favor i ho hat ) not established a character fo sterling worth in other respects and foi incorruptible integrity. SOME of our contemporaries are male ing sun while the hay shines , in sovora languages. During the past week tin mails have been flooded with tons o supplements with fruntio appeals to for eign-born citizens to save the country and support the democratic state ticket Even McSluinc's Own bus suddenly beet inspired to talk Gorman.

Ho is booked for speeches for every night during the remainder of the campaign. So fur ho has lost no sleep over Mr. Morton's canvass. On the contrary ho feels oncourngcd and confident of a liandsomo majority. Mr. Morton's Cobden - den club gospel , like the Sackvillo- West letter , is a powerful argument against the democratic candidate. STATE AND TKRIUTOUY. Nrbrankn Jottings.

The Gresham Ueview remarks ; "The Seward Reporter will establish a reputation as a chronic kicker if it doesn't stop kicking about such little things.

The Highest Colony In California. San Francisco Bulletin : Life at the Lick observatory , over four thousand feet above the ocean level , on a lofty summit , with other mountain crests only for neighbors , is an interesting study. Hero is , probably , the highest colony in California. The astronomers and necessary employes of the observa tory Jonn a little world of their own , and few of thorn care often to go outside of it. The stage that comes once a day brings news from the world outside and visitors curious to see the wonders of the mountain. A contract with a San Jose expressman secures all needed freight once n month sometimes oft- oncr. A butcher with supplies com s up the twenty-eight miles of tortuous mountain road once a week. Cows and chickens are adjuncts to the commissary department. Quail , rabbits and decl are plentiful in surrounding canons and some of the sportsmen astronomers oc casionally bring them down. The sum mer air is soft and f > o rnrilled as to ex hilarate and make great exertion seem slight. All the astronomers came from cities , yet none complain or sigh for at tractions beyond those revealed by the marvelous telescopes. Entombed on the Common. Boston Globe : A eombro undertak er's hearse standing in front of the old burial ground on the Common attracted the attention of many a hurrying pe destrian , to whom the sight of a half open door of n tomb within the enclos ure gave an added interest. It is so seldom that a burial occurs in the old Central that people who pass there every dny almost forcrot that such n place of interment exists. It wus not strango. therefore , that when late in the nftoruoon a cloth-covered casket was borne to the tomb before mentioned passers by stopped and gazed intently at the curious scone. The funeral was that of Mrs. Eliza Aun B. Loring , wno died nt her resi dence , 13 Park street , last Friday , at the ngo of thirty yearn. Private borvicos wore held nt the house at 2 o'clock , and the body was then removed to the fam ily tomb. It is not generally known that burials still take place frouitimo to time in this ancient cemetery , although they are always in tombs , a city ordinance for bidding the making of now graves. The last Interment occurred about two months ago , and several take place every year. It is not compulsory to use metallic coflins , as might be supponod. The First Corner in Corn.

Sunday Utic ts nt the Cnpltnt City 1'rcpnrlnc for n Grand Hcpub- Menu Ilally Gciu < rnl nntl Personal Notes. Lixcoi N BunsAtj orTitu OMAIU DEB , 1030 l SlltBRT , LINCOLN , Oct. 25. The nomadic tribes infest Lincoln to-day perhaps moro than at any other time during her history. At least a hundred families nro quartered in tents iu the outskirts of the city , and the shelter afforded by the gauzy texture covering them is barely siifllciont to keep out the raw air of the evening , lot alone thu winds and rain thut uro so liable to come at this season of the year. A dozen tents can bo seen on East O. street , and a peep behind the scenes alone is necessary to prove that suffering must como sooner or later , unless there is a change for the bettor in their surroundings. In quiry leads to the knowledge that they are hero doing the most uiunial kinds of labor and seemingly glad to got It to do on any terms. But this condition of facts is not unknown to the city walks of life , nnd it can bo truly said that pov erty stalks abroad in the land. It is barely possible that this tnny be properly classed ns pauper luoor. 'But to have it como upon Lincoln in dirt and filth and slime , breeding dis-cnse and pestilence , is a matter that invites the attention of the sanitary com mission if not the labor statis tician. During a short ramble of THE BKH representative this morning his attention was called to special evidence of suffering and want at the doors of some of tlio tents ou O street , in the squalid and ragged np- pearanco of some of the children stand ing about. There is room for the hand of charity even in Lincoln. The good church people of the city ought to ap preciate the fact when going down into their pockets so lavishly for foreign missions. It is said that generous acts lie at the gate of human happiness. I know from the evidences soon in differ- out quarters ol the city during the past few days that there is moro need for charity contributions right at home thanthoro canbe for the work of the missionary in India , China or thu wilds of heathendom ; so , if generosity bends ut the will of happiness , there is an op portunity for saving a- soul , and per chance a life , without going a mile from the portals of the home door. This frag ment is written under pressure of the belief that there is need for moro charity work for homo than other lands than ours. Not iv month ago the pastor of one of the prominent ohurches of this city announced from the pulpit nt the close of the evening service that the collection of the day for foreign mis sions amounted to $141. It was a gen erous contribution , but I do not believe that the same church , nor any other of the city for that matter , can raise a like sum for the needs of the wretched and stricken at home in a day or iu a week.
