IT IS quite evident that one of the
warring street car companies proposes
to carry on a long struggle over the oc

has scon fit to reject the proposition of
the court which ordered a joint occu

the citizens of Omaha will continue to
whistle for proper btroot railway facili
ties to the now bridge.
IT WOULD have a salutary oflcct upon
the purity of the ballot on election day
if an OMunplo wore made of some of our
ward politicians and candidates who
aided and abetted illegal voting at the
primaries. The laws of NobraMcn are
explicit , on the point , and it is high
time that the present free and easy
election methods come to a full btop.
EDOAI ; P. DAVIS , who 1ms been
nominated to represent the Ninth ward
in the council , is entitled to the sup

is no reason why the republican vote
should not unite on Mr. Davis , because
lie is known to bo a strictly honorable
and reliable man ,
JOB RKDMAK , on hia Jefferson square

thing to bo nominated , and another to

lie is an old chestnut that will have to

Tllfi improved palace cars for the
transportation of live stock ; the cold
btorago system of handling dressed beef

are all evidences of the progress made

to reason that all this care is taken
to insure the cleanliness and
lienlthfulnoss of packinghouse products.
In fact those precautions are necessary
for the life of the business. Improve

The recurrence of Thnnltflglvlnp Day
brlngfl with It tlic snmo tnorftl tlmt 1ms
so often been presented , and calls up
the familiar sentiments that are natur
ally inspired by the occasion. In the
light ofits history , which we have al
ready plvcn , and by virtue of its title ,
everybody understands the meaning
and purpose of the day. It is an occa
sion of Riving thanks , ot gladness , nnd
of feasting. The original character ot
the day has boon soinowhnt changed ,
and perhaps for the bettor. It is
now an occasion of heartier en
joyment and more soulful grati
tude than at Hrst. Wo are not under
the restraints and repressions of the
men who inaugurated this observance.
Wo have progressed to freer and more
liberal ideas , and our thanking is not
less earnest because loss constrained ,
not less sincere because less formal , not
less acceptable , we venture to think , be
cause fuller of merriment nnd gladness
than of old.
The observance ot n day of thanks
giving by sixtj millions of self-gov
erned people , in ncknowlodmcnt of
their dependence upon a higher
power nnd lit attestation of their
gratitude to that power , is rich in
btiggostion. It is especially hon
orable lo n people whom the
world credits with being more practical
and material in their sentiments and
aims than any other. As to the incent
ives to thanksgiving , surely no people
have greater than those of tilts most
favored land. Secure in their free in
stitutions , at peace with the world ,
blessed with an abundance of the neces-
snriesof life , nioxing steadily onward in
the path of progress and prosperity ,
and setting before the world the grand
est example in history of what a free
pi-oplo can acc&tnplish , wo have every
reason for national thanksgiving.
The invitation of to-day is not
alone to the enjoyment of what
wo have , but to such kindly
olliccs as will con tribute to
the enjoyment and incite the thank
fulness of the leas fortunate. It is an
occasion for the exercise of a generous
philanthropy , the practice of which is
always helpful to one's own enjoyment.
Wo trust that every reader ot Tun Br.B
has reason to be in full sympathy with
the spirit of this peculiarly American
SETTLE DOU'A * TO UUSTNESS.
The anxiety which the southern people
ple arc manifesting regarding the policy
of the next administration is unwar
ranted and foolish. Nothing which
General Harrison said during the cam
paign , nothing in his previous record ,
and nothing that has emanated from
any responsible source in the republi
can party justifies the apprehension
whicli apparently prevails sit the south
that the next administration will visit
some peculiar and severe political hard
ship on that section. Still the news
papers of the south are dally filled with
forebodings , and under the pressure of
anxiety and fear General Harrison
risen has been called upon
to define his position on the
"southern question. " In this , as in
all other respects , ho has shown a wise
discretion , going only so far as to reas
sure the people of the south that what
ever policy is pursued by the now ad
ministration will have regard for their
interests in common with those of other
sections in a word. , that the policy will
bo national , not sectional. In his letter
to the editor of a paper in Greenville ,
South Carolina , General Harrison said :
"When the surpri&o and disappoint
ment which some of your people have
felt over the result has passed away ,
and they give some calm thought to
the situation , I think they will bo
as much surprised as I am
that they should , in thought or
speech , impute to mo an un
friendliness toward the south. The pol
icies in legislation advised by the repub
lican party , I believe , are wholesome
for the whole country , and if those who ,
in their hearts , believe with us upon
these questions , would act with us ,
some other questions that give you local
concern would settle themselves. "
Could there bo anything said more re
assuring than this ?
What the southern people are evi
dently very much in need of jilst now
is calm thought. They were rather
more than surprised and disappointed
over the result of the election they
wore exasperated. Their confidence in
democratic success was absolute , and
upon ibis they had founded the cheerful
expectation of still more completely dom
inating national nirairs in the future.
Having their ftiith and their hopes
shattered by defeat , and being conscious
of their political shortcomings , it is
natural tlmt they should bo filled with
the fear of a retribution which they
know to bo deserved. But the republi
can party and its distinguished leader
have noldoa of retribution. They will
have no policy for the south that shall
not apply equally to the east and to the
west. "Tho policies in legislation ad
vised by the republican party I bollovo
are wholesome for the whole country , "
says General Harrison , and ho can bo
depended upon , if his past record and
his late utterances furnish authority
for judging , not to favor any policy
that is not national in its scope
and application. It will bo for
tlio southern people to determine
whether they are willing to accept poli
cies in the results of which they must
eharo in common with the people of
other sections in a word , whether they
will remain sectional and obdurate , or
submit to what the majority of the people
ple , us now represented by the repub
lican party , believe to bo wise , just and
necessary to the integrity and perpetuity -
potuity of American institutions.
It would bo well If the people of the
south could , In the most liberal sense ,
settle down to business. Tholr atten
tion to politics , to-the exclusion of prac
tical alTalfd , 1mb always boon a draw
back to them , and If they go on for
the next four years giving themselves
endless solicitude about , political affairs
the olToct must bo damaging to their
raatorinl affairs. Their wise course will
bo to let the former entirely alone , so
far as national matters are concerned ,
and give themselves up wholly to the
latter. In this way they will inspire
confidence and assist their prosperity.
The south has made notable progress in
the last few yours. In portions of that
section there has been great develop
ment. Most of tlio southern stales
posset almost boundless resources ,
which when utilized will bring great
wealth nnd commercial power to those
states , How much bettor for the people
to bend all their energies to making
thcso available than to keep themselves
in a fever of political anxiety to the
neglect of practical concerns. Never
was there a time when the well-remem
bered advice of the Michigan congress
man to the people ot the south was more
opportune than now. Lot them devote
the next four years to business , and
they may vest assured that the ronuuli-
can party will manage the affairs of the
nation without doing thorn any injus
tice , but rather in such a way that they
will receive their full share of the re
TUB country will heartily welcome
the confirmation of the report tlmt
President-elect Harrison desires Sen
ator Sherman to accept tlio position of
secretary of state , and that the senator
is disposed to do so. It is in the line of
prcccdant to offer this cabinet otllco to
Senator Sherman who was the leading
candidate in the national convention ,
but there has bcon a question whether
Mr. Sherman would care to assume
diplomatic duties , his public career hav
ing led him for the most part in another
direction. Ho is by no moans unfamil
iar with our foreign relations , however ,
having long served on the senate
committee on foreign relations , besides
which he is a very thorough lawyer , es
pecially well versed in international
law. At the head of the stale do part-
ment Mr. Sherman would give to our
diplomatic service a dignity , force and
character which it has hardly enjoyed
since DanioJ Webster was secretary of
state. The country could rely upon the
administration of the department being
thoroughly American , without any ex
travagant or aggressive parade. Our
interests abroad would bo fully pro
tected. There would bo little danger
of national humiliation from careless or
stupid blundering , and we should once
more win the respect of the world by
having a just and wcll-groundod policy
firmly carried out.
WK understand that General Esta-
brook denies that ho was the author of
the slanderous attack upon the editor of
Tin : Br.B which appeared in the Jle-
pnblkan over the signature of" Voritus. "
We cheerfully accord the general the
benefit of his disclaimer. The informa
tion on which the editor of THIS BEE
based his open letter came from n prom
inent citixon who hoard General Esta-
brook nt Saturday night's jamboree in
the city hall use about the same lan
guage that appeared over the name
"Veritas. " This attack at the council
chamber was entirely uncalled for
because no reference had been made to
General Estabrook in this paper for a"
year or two. His plea for Jofforsoa
square need not have been made
through personal abuse of a man
who is in every respect as good a
citizen as ho is , at least. If ho
has been wrongfully charged or sus
pected , it is because ho uttered in pub
lic what was printed afterwards over
another name. This paper has never
denied the right of any citizen to advo
cate whatever ho may doom to bo
his own or the public interest.
Its columns are , and always
have been open to the advocates of
Jefferson square , but they should con
fine themselves to the issues involved
instead of appealing to public preju
dice by personal abuse and villiflcatiou.
THE anti-polygamy laws arc still
being enforced in Utah , but it is a ques
tion whether they are accomplishing
their purpose. Their is now on the
criminal calendar for the November
term of court in the First district of
Utah some sixty cases in which the defendants -
fondants are prosecuted for polyg
amy under the Edmunds act.
In the list of the sixty defendants , not
one of them is accused of having com
mitted polygamy , owing to the diffi
culties to prove polygamous marriages.
But nearly every ono is to bo tried
under the law which forbids "unlawful
cohabitation , " the po-nalties for which
are comparatively light. The names
of the accused are significant
from the fact that nearly every
name is that of a Swede or a
Dane. Tins would indicate that a
majority of the oflondors are persons of
little social or political prominence in
the territory , probably newly , arrived
immigrants from Scandinavia. So long
as the federal courts confine their prosecution -
ocution to unimportant persons and
mote out to them slight penalties , it
will bo a long time before polygamy
will bo stumped out of existence.
Tun grand jury of Cook county has
indicted Cashier Tnlliniin of the bank
rupt Traders' bank of Chicago for em
bezzlement. The statute under which
the action is tried provides tlmt any
banker who receives money on deposit ,
knowing his bank to bo insolvent , shall
bo guilty of embezzlement. Further
more , the statute provides tlmt the fail
ure of a bank within thirty days after
the receipt of a deposit shall bo consid
ered prima facie ovldonco of ombo lo-
mont. This ia a strong law , which
commends itself for the protec
tion of depositors from fraudulent
bank officials , It is especially ap
plicable to Nebraska. Our legislature
will probably bo called upon this winter -
tor to pass stringent banking laws.
With a law similar to the Illinois bank
ing law on our statute books , the state
would bo bettor nblo to prosoouto the
rascals who ruined the bank and embez
zled the deposits of the people of Val
paraiso. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
THE attack which the Herald makes
upon Mayor B oatch in connection with
the Fourth ward republican primary
has nothing more for its basis than the
disappointment of certain democrats
who took a very active intoraat in this
politest. It la a piece ot impertinence
for a democratic paper lo poke ita nose
into a factional contest of the opposition
party. The //Iraki's admission tli at a
disturbance of the peace by a resort to
violence was only prevented through
the presence of the police at the Fourth
ward primary is a sufficient justification
for Mayor Broatch. The police were
stationed nt all the voting places to pre
serve order , and. that was eminently
proper in view of the fact that the pri
mary clcctions rd now regulated by
GBSiit\bSiJRUMAN will have uni
versal sympathy in , the severe bereave
ment caused by the death ot his wife ,
which occurrodTln New York yesterday.
Although Mrs.tSlwrman never courted
social prominence , few women had a
wider acquaintance and none was moro
highly esteemed. She was a devoted
wife nud mother , preferring to all
others tlio duties which thcso relations
devolved upon her , and particularly
proud of the honors and popular respect
tlmt were shown her distinguished hus
band. Tlio great soldier has suffered
tlio severe blow of his life and tlio whole
American ncoplo will extend to him its
tcndorcst and heartiest smpathy. , .
TlIK rcnomitmtlon of Frank Kasper
to represent the Second waul in the
council is a high compliment bestowed
upon a man who lias , during trying
times , always shown himself at once
faithful lo his constituents nnd
thoroughly honest in his dealings.
Neither has the Second ward had nny
reason to complain of Mr. Kaspor for
want of industry. Ho has attended
every meeting of the council , nnd has
always boon found voting on the sldo of
what ho believed to bo the public in
Tnn republicans ot the Fourth ward
have ratified the nomination made by
the club , in the person of Ml * . D. II.
Wheeler , who will undoubtedly repre
sent the Fourth ward in the next coun
cil. Mr. Wheeler has no superior as a
parliamentarian , and is thoroughly
equipped in every rctpeot in legislative
matters. Ho knows what the Fourth
ward wants and what tlio people of
Omaha want. He knows equally well ,
also , what tlioy do not want , and wo ba-
lievo ho will endeavor to represent the
wishes of his constituents to the best of
Tin : Burlington and -Union Pacific
have a very peculiar way of showing
their affection for Omaha. It has been
the boast of thcso railroads that they
wore at all times working for the inter
ests of our citv , and only wanted an op
portunity to manifest their love for hot-
prosperity. Nevertheless , when a rep
resentative body of citizens from Holt
county made a personal appeal to the
local managers of these two roads for a
direct communication with Omaha they
were given the cold shoulder.

The Prcsldcnt-lSlPcfH Choice of PrI-
viuo Secretary ,
Chaplain Lo/.ior of Mount Vcrnon :
"Elijah W. JIalford. Know him ? Yes ,
as well as I know any man in Indianap
olis. I have known him from his youth.
Know his mother and all the boys , and
a splendid lot of boys they were. I
was pastor of ono of the Methodist
churches of Indianapolis , and Mrs.
Halford was a inembor of another of
our Methodist societies there , nnd wo
were frequently thrown together in
church work. She was left a widow
when her boys wcro quite young1 , but
they were manly boys , and esteemed it
an honor to bo 'tied to their mother's
apron blrlnp. ' They wont to work in
the Journal office , J3. W. as reporter ,
' ' 'Willie' carriers
and 'Jiminic' and as ,
and they kept up as cosy a home ns you
could wish to see , in whicli that mother
was the queen. But a terribly calamity
came to that home during the \\.ar. Ono
morning while it was yet quite dark ,
Willie was distributing his morning
Journals , when a gambler came out of n
saloon , and with a drunken yell. Ilred
his revolver across the street in the
darkness. The ball crashed through
the brain of little Willie , and they car
ried him homo dead. Since that day
neither the Journal , nor the Intor-
Ocean , of which Ualford was once man
aging editor , has been charged with
friendliness for saloons or gambling
houses , except by prohibitionists of tlio
St. John-Helen Cougar 'combination,1
who recently undertook a contract to
ptilvorizo the republican party , ' I be
"Tell us something moro about the
I ] ul ford of the hour. "
"You want to know about his per
sonnel , as they say in Yokahoma , or
somewhere ? Well , Halford is another
of your 'big little man' like General
Harrison. Not a boy in size by any
moans , but not a largo man. I thinlt ho
and Iho president-elect would tij ) the
beam at about the same notch say 150
pounds but they both ran to brain
more than fcot , us you probably have
been led to suspect. "
"Do you regard him as n great man , "
"Well , yes for an editor ! " ( Here the
chaplain prepared to tiodgo an inkstand
with winch wo weru toying sugges
tively. ) "Journalism has boon his pro
fession nnd his forte ; and .vet ho is no
tyro in j > olitical affairs , as I happen to
know. Ho was Senator Morton's private -
vato secretary when Morton was at his
zenith in the days of Lincoln and
Grant , and no man of Halford 's brain
ever sat at the fcot of htich a man with
out acquiring much that is priceless in
btaloMiuuiship. Ilnlford has written
.lie platforms , and douo much to blwpo
the policy of the republicans of Indi-
ina for years , and I guess , too , tlmt next
; o MeKinloy , could claim paternal roia-
Joiih to our national platform. "
"You regard Harrison as the Morton
' " '
typ politically' ;
' Yes ; anil bo do I Harrison , in the
nnin. The Morton school of politics
ins been represented in Indiana
since Mortou'u day , by such
non as General Harrison , Govcr-
101- Porter , Go\ornor Cnmback and
Generals Hovoy and Tom Browne , Col
onel Hallowny and others , with Ilnlford
at the head of tliu Journal which is tlio
chief organ of the party in Indiana. "
"Hut what bus that to dovith a pri
vate secretary ? Harrison is no Grovcr
Cleveland and Ilnlford is no Daniel. "
"I tan nsburo you Harribon will run
.hings at the white lioubo , " tlio olmplnm
continued , "and Halford has honso
enough to lot him ! You will find IIul-
ord a business secretary thoroughly
comorsnnt with current national ntlniru ,
and with all t'rndos of public men
gentlemanly withal , and , withal , dis
criminating and bagacious. "
