TfiK lust act in the election of a presi
dent of the United States will take place
on the second Tuesday in January. On
thut date the electoral college of each
state meets at its state capital. The
electors ont their vote for president
and vlco-prosidont , The vote is road ,
CflrtUled and sealed , and throe copies
nro prepared , ono to bo taken to Wash
ington by n special messenger and ono
sent by mall. The secretary of state
likewise receives a copy to bo placed in
the archives of the stato. The business
of the college 1ms become moolmnieixl
and perfunctory. The electors are no
longer free to choose whom they think
proper persona for the high oftlco as
was intended by the fathers of the re *
jiubllo. They are more machines , "in
structed" delegates to register the na
tion's choice. For all practical pur
poses the electoral college could bo
abolished. The people , by their voles
on November 0 , sot their seal for presi
dent und vico-proaldout , and the elec
toral college is simply a survival of an
obsolete custom.
. <
Hocauso the Ifcmld UEr cstcd that the
council might not confirm Mayor Urontob's '
nppottitmonU as clerks and Judges of elec
tion , Tiir Hun declares it to bo an effort to
Incite InwlessnCM and anarchy. f it an
archy to decline to conllrm the appointment
of n mayor's lioolcr.i and utrikorsl Herald
ttefuslng to confirm is ono thing , and
refusing to consider is another. The
Herald was well awnro that a plot had
been hatched In Kd Mauror's saloon ,
which for months has boon the resort of
boodlors , contractors and conspirators
against law and order in this city , that
councilman should disobey the call
for a special mooting of the
council to consider the mayor's '
nominations for judges and clcrus
of election. By staying away and re
fusing to consider those appointments
the selection ot judges and clerks waste
to be loft to mobs of mercenaries and
gangs of stroot-swoopcrs , pavers and
graders , who lived promiscuously all
over the city , many of whom notoriously
are not voters.
The effect of this plot was nothing
more or loss than to encourage mob
rule , riot and anarchy. Docs the Herald
pretend to justify such plotsV Does it
pretend that the mayor was at
fault in asking the council to
pass upon the judges and clerks nom
inated by him as the charter requires ?
Was not every councilman who joined
in this olTort to subvert the charter ,
which ho had sworn to obey , guilty of
an impuachablo misdemeanor ? Wus
not every paper that encouraged such
lawlessness inciting anarchy ? If not ,
wo do not understand the meaning of
the term.
It is our conviction that the time
has come for the mayor and
the courts to acal with „ con
spiracy and lawlessness In the
council without kid gloves. The resorts
whore such plotting and lawlessness are
hatched should bo summarily deprived
of their licenses to sell liquor. Wo
have reached a stage in municipal gov
ernment that demands radical treat
ment. The present council has scatr-
duli/.cd the city in its defiance of law ,
its high-handed efforts to laclto violence
lence , and in catering to the most dan
gerous elements ! Through this malign
influence the city has fostorcd and
encouraged a gang 'of scoundrels
whoso only vocation is to hang around
two or three resorts and keep up plot
ting and scheming against the public ,
the mayor and all officers who are try
ing to protect the city against outlawry.
It is about time that those nests of cor
ruption bo broken up , and wo call upon
the Ilcmhl to join THE BEE in its effort
to uphold good government. Politics
is out of the question. If the republican
mayor is trying to do his duty fearlessly ,
ho should not bo obstructed by any ro-
imtablo citizen or newspaper.
The senate will to-day proceed with
the consideration of its tarilt bill. The
measure will bo dlscus&ed from day to
day by sections , amendments to bo
voted on in their order as offered. The
intention is to bring the bill to a final
vote before the holidays , and it is
thought this can bo done. Jt can be if
the belief that the democrats will offer
little obstruction is verified , and there
appears good reason to expect that it
will bo. The democrats in the senate
are not manifesting an obstinate
disposition. They will doubtless have
numerous amendments to offer as
the consideration of the senate bill
advances , partly with reference to
claiming a part of the credit for their
party should the measure finally be
came a law , and it is not doubted , that
the republicans will make some con
cessions to them , but the indications
are that there will be no concerted plan
of obstruction on the part of the senate
democrats , and that they will not bo un
willing lo lot the bill go to the house
before the holiday recess.
As to the fate of the measure in the
house , provided certain changes are
made in it , the outlook appears also to
bo favorable. Ono of the proposed
changes is n modillcation of the sugar
schedule , by which the reduc
tion of reran tie from that source
would not bo so largo aa contem
plated by the bill as it now
stands. The fconuto measure pro
vided for a ro vision of the sugar duties
which would cut down the revenue
about twenty-eight million dollars ,
while the house bill would reduce the
revenue only about eleven million.
This feature of the latter measure is
chiolly objectionable as being favoniblo
to the trust , and it is to bo supposed
that no considerable number of demo
crats will oppose a change that would
got rid of this objection and olloct a re
duction of thq rqvoiuo ) frqm sugar of
eighteen or twenty million dollars. It
is thought also that if the scmuo shall
propose the repeal of the entire tobacco
tax its measure will obtain the support of
a number of democrats in thohous'o , par
ticularly those from states whoso tobacco
interests are extensive. Even Mr ,
Mills is said to entertain this view. In
the event that the senate bill receives
the full .support of the republicans in
the house , but few changes from the
democrats would bo noccssary to pass it
in that body , and the anancos of secur
ing these would seem now to bo very
While it is to bo expected that the
largo majority of the democrats in the
house will refuse to recede from the
policy of tariff revision expressed i
their bill , for ono reason , if for no
other , that to do so would be a con
fession of the fault of that measure
and a stultification ot the party ,
.it may reasonably bo supposed that
there are others with whom suoh a con
sideration will Imyo little force now
that the necessity of party unity is loss
pressing. It required a vigorous appli
cation of the party lash to secure the
.small majority for the house bill by
which it was passed , and some of those
whom the political exigency forced to
accept this measure may readily justify
themselves now , after the absolution of
defeat , in supporting a compromise that
will parry tariff revision a considerable
stop forward , reduce the revenues of
the government to a safe extent , and
stop the accumulation of a dangerous
and demoralizing surplus , Suoh domor
crats , undoubtedly , thoro" are in conr
gross , sind it only remains to bo soon
whether they are numerous enough to
effect at this session legislation that
within the coming year will relieve the
people of unnecessary taxation and put
an end to an excessive accumulation in
the national treasury , which the demo
cratic president and party profess to re
gard with such serious apprehension.
ArilllT THK
The business of the rich agricultural
districts of northwestern Nebraska and
of the thriving towns of Norfolk ,
O'Neill , Neligh and others should bo
trlhutory to Omaha. Wo should bo able
to receive all their corn , cattle and
hogs , and to sell thorn the greater part
of their groceries , dry goods , clothing
and hardware. There is clangor however -
over that the exchange of trade which
should naturally How between our city
and that section of the slate will bo out
olTand diverted toother channels. The
complaints of the farmers and mer
chants are that they have no'diroct and
proper railroad communication with
Omaha , that the facilities for shipment
are irregular and unsatisfactory and
that the local rates are higher and out
of proportion to the through rates made
from the east.
Such a state of affairs should bo rem
edied , and it behoves our business
community to bestir Its-elf to remove
these urtillcial barriers. These com
plaints are founded on facts. Almost
the whole of the northern part of the
stale is drained by the Chicago &
Northwestern system. All the princi
pal towns In northeastern Nebraska
are tapped by the feeders and branch
roads of this railway which converge at
points near the Missouri-river to feed
the main lines running" to Chicago.
From the nature of its business , it is to
the advantage of the Chicago > fc North
western sy&tem to carry Nobraaka's pro
duct the whole loligth of Us line to Chicago
cage , and bring back to our state the
groceries and dry goods and commodi
ties used. That is the reason why Chicago
cage and not Omaha Is favored. A.nd
that explains why the Ch'icago &
Northwestern discourages trade be
tween northern Nebraska and Omaha ,
bv irregular service and disproportion
ate rales. The remedy in the matter
can bo applied. The people of northern
Nebraska want to trade with
Omaha. They recognize that it
is to their advantage to find a ready
market for their produce hero. It is
necessary , therefore , for the jobbers of
Omaha and the business communities
of the northern part of the state to take
such action as will put a stop to the dis
crimination against Omaha. They
should encourage the extension of com
peting lines from Omaha into the vari
ous counties drained by the Northwest
ern railroad. And above all the project
of building an independent line from
our city into that territory should not
be abandoned.
It is reported that theschemq of creat
ing a great railroad trust , disguised
under a misleading title , has been
abandoned , and that the rail way - situation
tion remains a problem to bo'solved , if
solution be possible , by some other plan.
The trust project , by whomsoever con
ceived and it may be remarked that
Mr. Gould , who was suspected of its
authorslup , disclaims all responsibility
for it failed to commend itself to all of
the railroad managers whoso acquie
scence was necessary to its consumma
tion , prominent among them being Mr.
Ilughitt , of the Northwestern system ,
to whoso opposition the failure of
the scheme is chiefly credited. It
would be interesting' to know the precise -
ciso grounds on which the president ; of
the Northwestern refused to have any
thing to do with the trust , but it is a
fair inference that hfs opposition was
duo lo&s to any conscientious considera
tion for the public welfare than to a
reasonaMo fear of being entrapped by
Mr. Gould , who , whether or not the
author of the clearing house scheme , is
by his own statement desirous of some
sortof combination. The North'vostcrn
president'certainly does wisely , both in
his own and the public interest , in keep
ing out of any alliance or arrangement
that proceeds from or has the approval
of Mr. Gould , and the example lie has
sot in this matter may prudently be
emulated by other railway managers
who are in a position to'act independ
ently. In doing so they are certain to
be on the safe side.
According to Mr. Gould ho had an
other and wholly different plan for
remedying the difficulties of the nitua-
llon , but what it was is not unfolded.
IIo expresses a willingness , however , to
enter into any arrangement that will
give the railroads paying rates , and it
is more than evident that ho was
chagrined over the failure of the
clearing-house scheme. His present
attitude is ono of menace. His refer
ence to the difforoncq between him
self and other railroad managers ,
in the fact that ahoy managed the
properties of other people \vhile
ho owns the properties ho manages , Is
significant when rend in connection
with his subsequent suggestion of a
concentration of- controlling powor.
\yimt Mr. Gould obviously meant was
that ho proposes to move against'tho
salaried officers on the roada that refuse
to go Into his deals , and freeze them out
by combinations with the big bankers
who furnish the money for railroad
building. This would bo a very largo
scheme , not , perhaps , too daring for
Mr. Gould to undertake , but possibly
beyond his power to consummate , That
ho is determined to do something in the
way of a radical departure , however ,
there \B \ every reason to believe , an
it is not impossible that withiu
a short time there may bo some
yory interesting developments in con
nection with this railroad controversy.
It is not questionable that It would ha
in the public interest If the , relations
between the railroads could bo ad
justed on a better basis , with some as
surance of permanence , so that rate
cutting , which is the source ot preson t
dltlloulty , might bo obviated , but suoh
schemes as the "clearing house" pro
ject will not bo tolerated under any cir
cumstances. No suoh dangerpua power
over the business interests of the coun
try could bo permitted , nor would it bo
allowed to continue. The problem is
certainly a difficult ono , but its solution
cannot bo impossible.
IT Is undoubtedly true that the people
of Colorado and the territories hardly
realize the great natural resources of
that section Ot the country awaiting to
bo developed. Wo have repeatedly
called attention to the possibilities and
benefits which will come to the west
through the development of the petro
leum fields and asphaltum beds of
Wyoming and Colorado. It now comes
to light that there is a great future for
the uses to which the soda deposits so
plentiful in all the territories can bo
put. In Wyoming , especially , there
are remarkably rich deposits ot pure
soda found In the so-'callcd soda lakes.
The proximity of soda to fine beds of
quart/ , sand and limestone makes it
possible that in the near future exten
sive glass works will bo established.
There is but ono thing necessary.
Nature has provided everything In the
laboratory except anthracite coal ,
which is a prime necessity to supply
a hot blast for making blown
or pressed glass. Unfortunately
anthracite coal i * not known to exist in
the bowels of the Rooky mountain * .
But its place can be supplied by petro
leum , which can be niHtlo to yield a
llamo equally as reliable and as hot aa
Irom anthracite coal. It is plainly evi
dent that not only the gla s industry
but other great manufacturing ontor-
prisuH are awaiting the development ot
the natural oil regions of Wyoming and
Colorado. For that reason the petro
leum beds of these localities should bo
developed without further delay.

hon why ho should not go into Gcnoral

fccnrcoly done enough work yet for the
parly to entitle him to suoh distinc :

as the Nonpareil do not know the dif-
oronco between a railroad manager and
a statesman , and in this way unwittingly
bear testimony to the fact that
it has never considered H.ulH-
ciontly lo comprehend and
that is that the railroad estab

ossal power , commanding the high
ways of the country and robbing Iho
people ot the country through their
fraudulent stocks and bonds in the
enormous charges based thereon , of
moro than $700.000,000 annually , and
feeling in the plontltudo of their pow
ers mid the docility of their victims ,
that they are moro than a match for the
people In their govormonlul capacity.
They are developing a few great cen
ters of population and prosperity from
wolvo to twenty-four hours' runs apart
and driving the intormodmto sections
into a mortgaged indebtedness that will
transfer it to themselves and their con
federates if tli9lr curcpr Is not checked.
In short , the people ar | ) to-day living
