At all events now states , doubtlcs :
three in number , are assured from the
territories of Dakota and Washingtor
during the republican administration ,
and their creation will inevitably give
a great impetus to the growth and pros
perity of those sections. 13oth popula
tion and capital will be attracted ti
thorn , railroad enterprise will bo eiv
couraged , now centers of population
will be established and there will be
progress along nil the lines of develop
ment. When the pcoplo of those
territories tire given full control
of their internal affairs the }
will bo enabled to do much foi
advancing the general welfare , whlcl
in their present condition they cannot
do , and with self government their en
terprise will be very greatly stimulated
In the fruits of such enlarged energy
the entire west and northwest will share ,
so that the promise of the admission of
Dakota and Washington and Montana
is of the greatest interest to the people
of all this section. Nebraska is pe
culiarly concerned in the development
of southern Dakota , and hardly to n
less extent in the growth of Wyoming
and Montana , and therefore the out
look favorable to the rapid future pro
gress of this tributary territory
is peculiarly gratifying to the
producers and merchants of Ne
braska. It means an enlargod'market
for both which must steadily increase
in importance and valuo.
With the material benefits to bo
derived by the west and northwest
from the change of administration will
come a political gain to the party in
power that will probably prolong its
control of the government for many
years. All the territories likely to be
admitted during the next administra
tion are now republican , and their ad
mission may reasonably bo expected to
make their people more strongly in
sympathy with republican principles
and policy. It is therefore probable
that four years hence there , will be
eighteen or twenty additional republi
can electoral votes , giving a great ad
vantage to that party which its oppo
nents already foresee with undisguised
apprehension. Thus the triumph of
the republican party assures an in
crease of both prosperity nnd political
power to the north and northwest , ren
dering those sections a still more po
tential force in the alTairs of the na
THE VOTE IN SOME CITIES.
In the west and the northwest there
Is keen rivalry among the loading cities
as to their respective populations , and
some newspapers , in championing the
cause of their locality , have shown the
same rocidcssness as the average fisher
man when boasting of hia catch. They
have made statements that were sur
prising , and they have stuck to them
with a pertinacity that In. time ob
tained for them belief in those quarters
xvhero it would servo them most. Ob
viously the desire to appear more than
ordinarily prosperous springs from the
hope of attracting immigration.
Of the two classes of immi
grants that are pouring into New
York , the agricultural and the
laboring , the former almost without
exception , comes either to the west ot
to the northwest. It is as beneficial as
the other is obnoxious , for whilst the
open gate to European labor simply re
duces the wages of American laborers ,
tind takes away the broad of many an
American family , the advent of the ag
ricultural element among us builds up
the territories and the states of the
north and northwest , and gives to land
in incredible increase in value , The
more settlers , the higher the vul uo of
iho broad acres , and the greater the
growth of values in city lota !
A presidential election brings out
ivlth reasonable certainty the reul pop-
alatlon of those contestants. There
is tome effort to juggles with the returns
by presenting in ono table the vote of
tlio entire county by precincts. It very
ioldom happens that the county vote
ind the city vote are practically the
same , though this is the case in Now
Vork , and very nearly so in Chicago ,
ivhiuh really covers Cook county. It has
lieon found by experience that each
k-oteir iu a full ballot roprobonts from
live to six parsons , women and children
uid non-voters. Where the number of
: ho latter is considerable as in San
Francisco and in Now York , even six tome
mo will hardly cover tlio case. In
julot inland towns in Now England it
nay bo doubted if live to ono is not in
ixcoss of the truth. For our northwost-
irn and western communities an avor-
igu of live and one-half to one scorns as
loarly accurate as possible.Ve hnvo

For the first time , wo believe , in r
long course of litigation , the Boll Tele
phone company has encountered an adverse
verso decision , which carries with it tlu
probability of more serious future con
sequences to that monopoly. In the supreme
promo court of the United States a de
cision was rendered on Monday favor
able to the government in the case o
the United States against the Americai
Bell Telephone company , to the exteul
of sustaining the action brought by tin
government to impeach two patents is
sued to Bell and for deciding thorn ab
The patents in question won
issued in March , 187i ( , and ii
January , 1877 , the first coverinf
the invention of the telephone am
the second for improvements in the in
struments by which the vocal sound
are conveyed. The government brough
a suit in equity in the United Statei
court of Massachusetts , alleging tha
these patents were secured by fraud
The bill of the government charged
that Boll know when ho filed an appli
cation for the first patent that ho was
not the first and original inventor , ant
that his untrue statements were a deception
coption and fraud upon the government
but for which the patents would not
have been issued. The bill coutainet
various citations showing wrongful in
tent on the part of the patentee.
The telephone company filed t
demurrer , which was sustainei
by the circuit court , sottinf
forth among other things that there
was no power or authority in any per
son or party , or in any court , to bring
such a suit nor to entertain the same
and in effect claiming that there was
no way by which relief could be obtained
from the company. The supreme
court decided adversely on all the
causes of the demurrer , and its opinion
was especially full and clear regarding
the proposition that the government
had not the authority to bring the suit
and was helpless to counteract the evil
resulting from its having been imposed
upon. "Tho essence of the right
of the United States to interfere
in this case , " said the court , "is
its obligation to protect the
public from the monopoly of the patent
which is procured by fraud , " and in the
opinion of the court the duty of the
government , acting as the agent of the
people in this case , to get a remedy lot
the fraud was so clear as not to need ar
gument. The decree of the circuit
court dismissing the bill of the govern
ment was reversed und the case re
manded with directions to overrule the
demurrer , the defendants to have leave
to plead or answer , or both , within a
time to bo fixed by the circuit court.
Thia chock to the hitherto vic
torious career of the Boll tele
phone monopoly will not causa
any regret to the general pub
lic. It gives the assurance that the Boll
patents will now receive a more thor
ough judicial investigation than they
have yet had , and as the case of the
government has boon most carefully and
comprehensively made up a result is
possible that will put an end to this exacting -
acting monopoly and enable meritorious
inventors to obtain justice. The uni
form success of the Boll Telephone
company in the courts had led the pub
lic to think that there was little hope
of relief , and indeed there was none so
long as the monopoly had to contend
with individuals and could fight its bat
tles in Massachusetts. But with the
government ns an opponent the inflated
nnd grasping corporation has encoun
tered a check that may presage defeat ,
nnd which the government will hail aa
nt least giving promise of relief.

report of its committee in favor of u
liberal appropriation for a deep-water

Tlio members of the board who voted
to endorse their report are laboring
a ti dor the delusion that Omaha and
Nebraska are to be materially bonoflttod
jy this project , They liuvo given
, ho matter no serious thought from a
juslness standpoint , and simply lake it
for granted that the products of this
fcectlon will find their natural outlet by
, ho shortest route to the seaboard , and
hence to Liverpool. The laws of com-
norco , like the law of supply and de-
nund , nro reciprocal. The deep water
larbor at Galveston or any ether Texan
iort will never compote with Now York ,
3oston und Baltimore , because the
ihannols of trndo always rune
o the great marts of com-
norce , where those who have
iroducts to sell will find merchandise to

tundrod miles plays no part in the ta-
crohungo of commodities.

The promise that the deep-water barber
bor would establish a grcnt city i
Texas that will bo able to cope wit
Now York and Boston is fallacious. Th
American metropolis commands billion
of capital , nnd the merchants of th
west are compelled to trade where the
can find the largest supply ot morchtui
ellso and the most liberal credits. 1
change in the established chan
nels of trade is , therefore , utterly oti
of question. Galveston or the propose
port in Texas would doubtless prollt b
the deep harbor appropriations , and s
would the contractors and lot-specula
tors , but the Omaha board ot trade wll
bo several hundred years older bofor
its members will see any largo quanti

Ir THE county republican commlttc

learned enough not to called a bill a measure
