Asvjj approach the end of the year

with preceding years for the same

THE railroad commissioners of Min
nesota , have decided to Ux a date bylaw
for the abolition of the car-stove in the
Btate. It would bo highly pronor in
view of the action of the legislatures of

laws to do away with the deadly car

Tun expiration of the live-year guar
antee of tlio Barber Asphalt company
to keep the pavements on Douglas and
Sixteenth street in repair , makes it nec
essary for the council to make ar

probability a contract will be entered
into with the Barber company for that

evidently did not take into considera

JIM OilKiciliTON' rind his gang ofToffor-

A member of the whisky trust is
quoted as saying that the improvement
in trust securities recently is duo to the
result of the late election. "Those of
us who arc interested in trust compa
nies , " he is reported to have said , "have
a greater fooling of security than here
tofore ; wo have more confidence now in
trusts , and lm\-e no fear of adverse legis
lation. " it is quite possible there arc
persons interested in these combina
tions who entertain the views ascribed
to this member of the whisky trust ,
though It Is not easy to see upon what
rational grounds. There wa1 * certainly
nothing In democratic pledges or demo
cratic action before the election that
should have caused the trusts to fear
adverse legislation from democratic
suciess. This form of monopoly has
had its extraordinary growth since the
present administration cnmolntojo\ver ) \ ,
yet the democratic national platform
did not promise anything for tlio over
throw of trusts , and the popular branch
of congress controlled by the democrats
did nothing hostile to these combina
tions. On the contrary the sugar
schedule of their tfirllT bill was ar
ranged to protect the trust which Is ex
acting the largest tribute from the
consumers of the country , anil if there
was any danger threatened to the
whisky trust it was in the proposi
tion to permit the moonshine dis
tillers of the south to pursue
their industry without interference.
Kvcry anti-trust bill introduced in the
house was buried In committee , and all
the parade of hostility to these combi
nations came to nothing practical.
Obviously there was in the conduct of
the democracy nothing to alarm the
But accepting the statement that the
result of the election gave a feeling of
greater security to the trusts , one of
the llrst duties of republicans wherever
thov are in control will be to show that
this confidence , is misplaced. Every
rouubllcan state legislature should put
itself on record with adequate legisla
tion against these combinations , and
publicans in congress should bo fore
most in urging whatever national
legislation may be found practi
cable for the suppression of
the trusts. The party is fully
committed to this policy and the pcoplo
expect it. The national platform de
clared "opposition to all combinations
of capital organized in trusts or other
wise to control arbitrarily the condi
tions of trade among our citizens , " and
recommended to congress and the state
legislatures in their respective jurisdic
tions ' 'such legislation as will prevent
the execution of all schemes to oppress
the people by undue charges on their
supplies , or by unjust rates for the
transportation of their products to
market. " This declaration was fully
approved by the presidential candidates
of the party , General Harrison saying in
his letter of acceptance : "It cannot
bo doubted that the legislative
authority should and will find a method
of dealing fairly and effectively with
these and other abuses connected with
this subject. " Being thus explicitly
committed in opposition to every form
of combination for arbitrarily controll
ing the conditions of trade , the repub
lican party cannot afford to disregard its
obligation to legislate against the trusts
wherever it has the power to do so , and
we do not believe there is any disposi
tion to ignore its duty in this matter.
Its conduct upon this , as upon all o ther
questions affecting the interests and
welfare of the people , will bo moat
carefully watched during the next four
years , and no shortcomings will escape
the vigilance of its opponents. If the
party is to retain power beyond another
administration it must keep faith with
the people , and in no respect will this
bo demanded more urgently than in
crushing out monopolies and the com
binations that arbitrarily control the
conditions of trade. The professed con
fidence of the trusts presupposes the
faithlessness of the republican party to
one of the plainest of its pledges to the
people , and therefore wo believe it to
be misplaced.
Among the matters which it is ex
pected will bo presented to the atten
tion of congress early in the coming ses
sion is the question of further regulating
and restricting immigration. Repre
sentative Ford , chairman of the special
committee to Investigate the subject ,
and recommend suitable legislation , in
tends to call his committee together be
fore congress assembles in order to pre
pare a report , so that the subject can bo
brought forward as soon as practicable
after the session opens. The investiga
tions of the committee were not
carried as far as was intended ,
but sutlicient information was
obtained to enable the com
mittee to report intelligently in the
matter and to suggest additional legis
lation believed to be necessary.
Among the recommendations that
Mr. Ford will urge is the appointment
of consular Inspectors to every foreign
land that sends large numbers of immi
grants to this country , such inspectors
to bo attached to the American consular
and diplomatic services in the several
countries. Ho would provide that those
who desire to come to this country shall
Illo applications , giving ago , birth
place , occupation , purpose , pedigree
and other important or material points ,
thirty , sixty or nlaoty days , as
may bo thought best , before taking
passage , and during that time the in-
bpcctorti shall investigate the past lives
and records of the applicants and act
according to the facts ascertained. This
plan In doubtless feasible , but It might
bo found not to bo wholly free from ob
jections. There would undoubtedly be
cases in which it would operate unjustly
to dosorvlug persons and thora would
very likely ba other ea esin which care
less or corruptible Inspectors would per
mit umluitlrahla immigrants to coma to
ourshores , It in purtlnuntly suggested
that the mlnifrtaror consul who issues the
passports should be held personally ac
countable for a violation or a lax en
forcement of the law , but oven such
a provision might fail to secure
I if all crises a faithful performance of
duty on the part of those officials.
But the important matter to be
avoided ia thai of carrying regulation
and restriction to such an extreme as
will exclude from our shores immigrants
who have everything to recommend
them except a pecuniary qualifica
tion. There hns been a great outcry
within the pnst year against pauper
labor , with the effect of creating a pub
lic sentiment favorable to shutting out
everybody who cannot come to our
shores with a plethoric purse , regard
less of the conditions which make de
sirable and useful citizens. Some dem
agogues have urged that no for
eigner coming to this country to labor
should be permitted to hind unless ho
has enough money to subsist on at least
a year , forgetting that millions of those
whoso industry and thrift have helped
to make the nation what it is in all
material conditions cnmo here with lit
tle besides their wealth of energy and
integrity , on which they have builded
to their own honor and to the prosperi
ty and greatness of the country. It is
the instinct of a narrow selfishness
which acsorts that wo have no more
room for this class of pcoplo from other
lands , and which would exclude them
if lacking the monetary qualification.
There is no division of opinion as to the
desirability or necessity of shutting out
pauper labor , and our laws already
provide for this , but there
should be a discrimination between who have the ability and the
willingness to earn n livelihood , and
who come with a purpose to assimilate
with us , and such as are paupers be
cause they arc neither competent nor
disposed to bo otherwise. The test for
admitting the immigrant to the privi
leges and opportunities of this country
should be character rather than capital.
There is still room here for the intelli
gent , honest and competent workers of
other lands , who arc prepared to be
come Americans in all that the title im
plies. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
The only connection the redoubtable
Colonel Sabiu has with the Burlington
railroad now is his pocket full of passes.
The colonel , however , is not the only
insurance agent who is capping for
railroads in Nebraska and takes his pay
in passes. Wo could name half a dozen
captains and colonels who hold com
missions ns managers of insurance com
panies and dabble in politics
as convention packers and legislative
lubricators while other agents who
have too much self-respect to do such
infamous work are obliged to pay their
fair. The day is not distant , however ,
when the insurance agents with railroad
attachments will call out the resent
ment of the people that will make such
business too odious to bo carried on
with impunity. There is no good rea
son why any manager of an insurance
company should bo deadheaded by a ,
railroad to the detriment of honorable
Just before the late land-slide , Coun
cilman Hascall assured our citizens that
he did not intend to interfere with the
police commission if elected to the
senate. A large numbar of voters had
grave doubts of Mr. Hascall's sincerity.
Their opinion is now fully justified by
Mr. Hascall's declaration that "a mossback -
back governor is not lit to appoint mem
bers of the police commission , " who
ho insists should be elected by the
people. On this point many good citi
zens differ very radically with Mr.
Hascall. The metropolitan police sys
tem is designed to remove the
control of the police from
the demoralizing influence of
party politics. If the people could sel
ect the commission without the inter
vention of party machinery , with its
ward caucusses , political bummers and
strikers , it would doubtless bo very sat
isfactory. But experience in all largo
cities has shown that the police cannot
bo made efficient without divorcing it
from the influence which is all potent
in politics. If the police commission
ers owed their election to the lawless
elements that have to be kept in
check by the police , they would have
to pay tlieir political debts by the ap-
pointmontof a class of men on the police
force that would wink at crime and go
into collusion with outlaws.
This is precisely what the present
system seeks to avoid. Omaha is not
the only city in which the police com
missioners are appointed by the gov
ernor of the state.
Mr. HnscaU'H opinion of Governor
Thayer is scarcely a good argument for
changing the system , which has
wrought a marked improvement in our
police , in the matter of discipline
efficiency and personnel.
I ) ' . .7. COXNELL.
The official returns received at the
state capital from the cloven counties
which comprise the First congressional
district give Hon. W. J. Connell a
plurality of 3,407 over his democratic
opponent , J. Sterling Morton. In view
of the fact that the First district , two
years ago gave the democratic candi
date for congress over 7,000 majority ,
this may bo properly called a political
revolution. Mr. Council's constituency ,
comprising 00,057 voters , numbers
not less than : ! G5,000 people.
This is one of the largest con
stituencies any man has over repre
sented in the lower house of congress.
Mr. Council certainly has reason to
feel gratified over the marked oxpies-
nioii of confidence ho has received from
the people , and wo fool safe in predict
ing that this confidence will not be be
trayed , Mr. Connell owes his election
largely to the fact that in the past ho
has shown active sympathy with the
industrial classes. His career as a pub
lic olllcor has been a fair test of his sin
In congress Mr. Connell will repre
sent the people of the whole district ,
and not merely the city of Omaha , or
any particular corporation. While ho
has always been a staunch republican ,
he believes lu curbing the power of
monopoly , and will favor such measures
ns will ameliorate the condition of the
laboring man and give the producer re
lief from oppressive burdens.
Tun Oklahoma boomers have had
their spirits revived la anticipation of
the friendly attitude which congress is
likely to manifest. The early admission
of Dakota and othar territories presages
well for tho'pa'SSago of favorable legisla
tion in their behalf. The Springer bill
now pending In the house calls for the
opening of Oklahoma to settlers and the
organizatlot , bt a territorial form of
government. . Should this legislation bo
passed during the coining session , sev
eral million , pcros would be thrown
open to settlement and a great rush of
emigration would undoubtedly lake
place. The recognition of Oklahoma as
an independent territory would , however -
over , menace thfl existence of Indian ter
ritory. Oklahoma , to all intent , is a coun
ty in the conVr' < 5 of Indian territory. If
Oklahoma bo opened to white men and
given a separate form of government ,
there would be the peculiar spectacle of
a new territory surrounded on all sides
by the lands of the civilized tribes. The
effect of this condition may bo easily
imagined. The white people of Okla
homa would gradually encroach upon
Indian territory , and by degrees absorb
the lands belonging to the Indians. The
boundaries of Oklahoma would expand
on all sides until eventually Indian ter
ritory would be swallowed up by the
now territory. Such an absorption is
inevitable and explains the reasons why
congress has been cautious in passing
the legislation asked for by the clamor
ous Oklahoma boomers.
TIIK interest shown , chiefly by Wash
ington correspondents , regardin g the
future of Colonel Daniel Lament is
doubtless complimentary to the ellleiont
private secretary of Mr. Cleveland , one
of whoso merits is that ho has been suc
cessful in maintaining excellent rela
tions with the newspaper men. A re
port respecting Colonel Lament that
possesses some general public interest is
that ho may bo given a life position as
judge advocate general of the army , a
position that has been practically va
cant since the suspension of General
Swaiin. some three years or more ago.
The appointment of Lament to the po
sition would be exceptional , though not
unprecedented , but it would be a reward
for valuable services rendered to Mr.
Cleveland which few would seriously ob
ject to , and probably none outside of
army circles. Lmnont is said to have
the required legal qualifications.
I IIODK Isi.Axn was the only slate in
the union requiring a property qualifi
cation for voting. At the recent elec
tion an amendment to the state consti
tution was adopted by a large majority ,
doing away with this obnoxious restric
tion. The law now provides that every
male citizen above the age of twenty-
one , who has resided two years in the
state and six months in the city where
ho wishes to vote , is to have the right
of suffrage. The now law has enfran
chised several thousand citizens , and
will materially swell Little Ilhody's
voting strength. What effort this addi
tion will have on Rhode Island polities
remains to bo seen. The state has been
reproached , not without cause , of being
a rotten borough. It is to bo hoped
that the now law will infuse a healthier
tone into the politics of the little slate.

A. Six Ycnr Term.
r/ifcdvn if net.
There are many arguments in favor of n
six-year term. A presidential campaign un
settles business. It causes heavy losses in
trade. It costs millions of dollars , it leads
to general uproar , ill temper , dyspepsia , and
extraordinary ulTuslou of spirituous liquors.
It seta people to gambling. An extension of
the presidential term two years would wipe
out one-third of this annoyance from every
subsequent century. There would bo more
time for business. Each administration
could have un adequate period in which to
prove the ertlclcncy of its particular policy of
government. The president would have time
to get acquainted with tlio members of bis
cabinet before ho and they were removed
from olllcc.

for pine logs , driving n wagon. On the
top of a largo rock by the side of the
road was a young bear. The mother
had started up the mountain as the team
"The cub looked so cute , " said the
teamster , "lying there with its paws
dropping- over the edge of the rook
watching the horses us they came up.
Presently the old bear came bounding
back to the cub , and , giving it a nudge
with her nose , started up the mountain
again , expecting the 'young one' to fol
low."But the cub made no move. The old
bear came buck a second time , and , tak
ing the cub in her arms , gave him sev
eral cults.
"This time the cub obeyed orders and
followed the old bear in a gallop up the
side of the mountain.
"lie know , that cub did , that he had
bettor mind , for that old boar wouldn't
Bland any more fooling. "
