THE board of county commissioners
has a delicate and important duty to
perform in the selection of election
boards. 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

serious question and ono of great ro >
THE intor-Btnto commerce commission
has taken a stop forward to shield tin

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

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
Thus far the campaign has been o

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 >
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 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.

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 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.

to kick about a little thing like that. Over
in this portion of the country it takes a letter
threii days to go seven miles and nine days
to go thirty miles , varying souiowhat ac
cording to the humor of the civil service re

barrels. Inserting n rubber hose In one of
the barrels , which fltteJ the npertjro so
tightly that no nir could escape , ho turned
the water on. Instantly there was an ex
plosion and the barrel was blown to frag
ments , one sharp piece striking the bov's
wrist and inflicting n serious wound. It took
thirteen stitches by a surgeon to close the
wound , and tho'boy lost so much blood thut
he fainted during the operation. Ho will re
cover , however.
A man may suffer without sinnintrbut
cannot sin without sullering. To suitor
that cold to run into consumption would
be a sin and cause suffering , but War
ner's Log Cabin Cough and Consump
tion remedy will do what its name indi
cates , every time. _ It is a certain cure.
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.
New York Telegram : Broker Rus
sell , of the produce exuhungo , is a
teacher in a Sunday school , and his
knowledge of history , both commercial
and profane is "equalled by few and excelled -
celled by none. "
"My friends , " said ho to a crowd of
brokers at the produce exchange , "you
doubtless think that the corner 'Old
Hutch' has created in the wheat mar
ket is pretty big thing and so it is ; but
let me remind you that 'tuoro is noth
ing now under the sun. ' The few of
you who have read the hiblo know that
in olden Union there wus u tremendous
shortage in the corn crop.
"Tho 'Old Hutch * of that day was a
certain ruler of Egypt , who bomohow
managed to got the bulge on the other
speculators. Ho captured all the loose
corn he could llnd and had it stored in
great cribs , something like the big
Erie , Now York Central and Pennsyl
vania elevators. Then ho watched his
opportunity to sell oul nt high figures.
Among thu shorts who came to buy
were Jacob & Sons. They "
"Hold on , Russell , " shouted n mob of
brokers ; "that's a chestnut nnd wo
wou't stand it. "
Then the boys took Ru&sol.l ovbr to
the sample table and punished him by
pouring shelled corn and wheat down
his shirt collar and neck.

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.

Little Johnny Hicks , the bov who hail
his logs bo cruelly crushed under a
moving train last evening , may get
well. Ho recovered from the shock of
tmipnlation much butter thnii was ex
pected , and at this hour is resting easy.
Johnny's legs were both amputated just
above the knee by Dr. Grimes , assisted
by Dr. Rent. This lesson ought to
prove a warning to all lads who have
been in the habit of jumping upon mov
ing trains , while in the net of switching
or starling from the depot on the regu
lar run.

to bo given to social pleasures. It Is
stated that the bick tire all convalescing
and in a fair way for recovery. With
the number of typhoid patients in

markable. It speaks well for the care
given the sick and alllictcd.
