Y ono member's faco.was slapped
in the Iticliann legislature yesterday.
It is not staled why the session was so
Tins despatch with which the Omaha
charter was disposed of in the house
nugurs well for its passage through the
CANNOT the gentlemen who want
Omaha's streets devoted to their poles
and wires think of something else to
ask for ?
JUST as soon as the amended charter
becomes a law our city authorities ought
to take steps toward acquiring at least
one thousand acres of park ground.
IT is reported that "Bill Jones the
Avenger" is dead. As Guitoau , whom
Dill shot at very wildly , is also dead ,
perhaps Bill could not do bettor for
himself and his follow men.
IK the six hundred Iowa farmers about
to be evicted from the lands they have
tilled are not engaged in cleaning up
the old family shotguns , they take a
peculiar view of the situation.
TIIEHE are altogether too many flvo
or cent a intinth bankers and money
lenders in the legislature to expect any
relief from cut-throat note-shaving
through stringent usury la-Vs.
WASHINGTON" is said to bo filling up
with ttireo kinds of people excursion
ists , olllco-sookors and Dakotans. Gen
eral Harrison will be obliged to do some
lively dodging to escape them all.
IN ITS decision upholding the sub
mission bill the supreme court has son-
tuncod Congressman Council to ono
term , and many aspiring republicans
liavo been sentenced to pass their days
Tim council has concluded not to
submit paving contracts for the sensou
until the merits of the brick paving
block bo investigated. There is little
time to bo lost , if the council is in
earnest about the matter.
A HECUST prize fight at San Fran
cisco was quite disastrous in its result.
One of the participants lost most of his
tcct.h. It is plain that ho can never
alic againSvith sufliciont lluoncy to bo
rated as a Ural-class pugilist.
SOMK of the councilmou are vrondor-
ously concerned for fear they may give
a reporter some item of news. It is
pleasant to see the gentlemen thus
wrapping themselves in inposing aus
terity. Reporters appreciate it j ust as
they appreciate any other joko.
NKLSON , the forger just captured in
tins city , considered himself a great
man until ho road of Pigott's achieve
ments. Then , it is said , ho hung his
head in shame. Compared with euch a
a olooded scoundrel as Pigott , Nelson
must recognize himself as a scrub.
Mourn Wollman , of Minnesota ,
whoso daughters , aged thirteen and
fifteen , eloped with two worthless young
chaps , proved himself equal to the dual
emergency , lie gave chase , culled the
daughters , and thrashed the would-be
husbands until they howled again.
OnitatAKY shows her faith in the
ohild-llko simplicity of the present ad
ministration by protesting her desire
for peace , and at the same time shipping
, troops to Samoa , As Secretary Bayard
will Roon bo out of a job , circumstances
BUggost that ho would make an excel
lent assistant matron at the creche.
v r PEOI-US who visit Washington at
this time must expect to bo fleeced.
The residents of the national capital
who obtain a livelihood by preying
upon the rest of their countryman who
go to that political mecca kpow how to
make the most of such an opportunity
ns the , present , and from all accounts
they will bo more merciless now than
over before in their exactions.
Tins legislature may venture to offer a
bonus for sugar beet rulaing.but when the
Grand Islanders want the state to build
thirty cottages at the soldiers' home tot
accommodate the families of veterans
who have married their third or fourth
vrlvw , wo doubt whether the venture
will receive popular approval.
And now it is'proposed to appropriate
fifty thousand dollars , and place tha
fund at the disposal of a board of immi
gration , for advertising the resources
of Nebraska. While every effort to at
tract attention to Nebraska , with
a view to promoting the Increase o !
our population , dosorvesoncouragemont
wo do not bcllovo a board of Immigra
tion is necessary or desirable. Nebras
ka's experiments with boards of immi
gration have yielded very small
returns on the iin-estmont. Ninc-
tcnths of the appropriations
were squandered by the defunct board
and its agents In pleasure trips to
Europe and junkets through the east
ern states. The expense of bringing anew
now faotUer to Nebraska through that
agency was , if anything , greater than
the cost of hilling an Indian in one of
our early day Indian wars.
Nebraska should by all means emu
late Kansas , California and Oregon in
their effective and systematic
efforts to make their advantages
and resources known to people
who desire to como west. Bui
this can and should be done without a
board of immigration or immigration
agents. The best advertising Kansas
has had for the last ton years has boon
through the reports and pamphlets pub
lished and circulated by the secretary
of the state board of agriculture. These
documents are compiled with great care
and contain an exhaustive review of
everything pertaining lo the products
and industrial activity of that state.
If our legislature would place at
the disposal of the eovornor or
secretary of state ton thousand dollars
annually for compiling , printing and cir
culating immigration literature , wo will
accomplish all that can bo done by any
board of immigration. A few lines in-
faortod in the advertising columns of
the loading dailies and weeklies
in the population editors of the
country , to the effect that Information
mation concerning Nebraska can
bo had postage free by application to
the governor or secretary of state would
bring thousands of inquiries from people
ple who desire to como west. To scat
ter documents broadcast , or expend
largo sums on traveling agents , would
bo simply a waste of money and on im
position on the taxpayers.
It is is understood that the Iowa rail
roads subject to the schedule of rates
adopted by the railroad commission of
that state are contemplating a policy of
retaliation. It is said they propose to
cut down expenses by curtailing the
service , doubtless expecting to thereby
create a public clamor against the
action of the commission. Such a policy
was threatened while the Question , of
the authority of the commis
sion was under judicial con
sideration , and though there is no
information of its having boon yet put
into practice anywhere , its adoption
would not-bo surprising.
But might not such u policy prove to
bo a grave mistake , defeating its obvi
ously prime purpose of creating popular
dissatisfaction with the commission.
The railroads claim that the rates
proscribed for them will not bo com
pensatory. The only way to determine
this , as was said by Judge Brewer , is
by experiment , with existing condi
tions unimpaired. To reduce expenses
by arbitrarily curtailing the service
will not prove the conten
tion of the railroads that they cannot
prolitably do business at the rates ilxod
by the commission , and unless this bo
true , the public , while it may bo an
noyed and incommoded in consequence
of curtailed facilities , will not bo likely
to antagonize the action of the commis
sion. The failure of the combined rail
roads of the country to render the
inter-state commerce law obnoxious tote
to the people , by adopting all sorts of
methods for the annoyance and embar
rassment of the public , ought to instru ct
the managers of the Iowa railroads that
a policy of this kind is not wibo or
profitable. Public interest nnd public
sentiments everywhere are in favor of
tlio railroads receiving a fair and rea
sonable compensation for the services
rendered , and if the Iowa roads can
rihow their inability to do business profit
ably at the rates proscribed by the com
mission , without reducing expenses by
curtailing the service , it is within the
authority of the commission to advance
the rates , and n popular demand would
require it to do so. But such a result
will not bo accomplished by any arbi
trary policy. On the contrary
such a policy would rather
tend to solidify public opin
ion against the claim of the rail
roads and induce it to Insist more deter
minedly upon the requirements of the
commission. If the railroad managers
ittompt to make u contest of endurance
ihoy will doubtless find the people of
town prepared to fight it out on that
.ino indefinitely. If the roads undor-
.ako to interfere with publio conven
ience and to withdraw facilities unnec
essarily as a means of c rcating popular
dissatisfaction , they will certainly find
that their own interests will suitor , and
that the sentiment created will only
idd to their troubles. Their obviously
wise course , therefore , is not to adopt
my extreme measures , but to act in
good faith , relying upon intelligent
nibUo buntimont nnd judicial authority
.o juataln their rights.
TJfB NKXT SENATE.
President Cleveland has issued a
iroclnmatlon , as is the custom when a
icw administration is coming into
tower , convening the senate at noon on
, ho fourth day of March ' 'to receive
such communications as may bo made
jy the executive. " This is to finable
, ho now president to immediately send
to the senate for confirmation the names
of the members of his cabinet , so that
10 time shall bo lost in organising the
uhninUtratlon. The cabinet of-
Iciuls of the outgoing adminis
tration continue in uorvico un-
.11 their successors are appointed
uid confirmed , the business of the
government in all departments thus
jolng forward without interruption by
oason of the change of administra
tion , but it is desirable to olfoct the
change , particularly when the now ad
ministration is of dilleront politics , as
fiutckly ns practicable , rtnd hence the
necessity of convening the sdnato. Nor
docs the necessity cense with the con
firmation of the cabinet. There are
numerous appointinents ln the several
departments which the now admin
istration will desire to mane at
an early date , as well as a con
siderable number in the stated. As
soon as the new heads of departments
are installed resignations will pour in
upon thorn , and It nooil hardly ho said
that the great majority of them will bo
accepted. There will thus bo an abund
ance of work rapidly cut out for the
senate to act upon , and while it islikoly
to proceed with very little delay In con
firming appointments , the majority beIng -
Ing in political sympathy with the ad
ministration , it Is quito likely to remain
in session at least throughout March ,
Sessions of the senate convened under
like circumstances have lasted two
months or more. But It is probable that
in the present case the session will boone
ono of the briefest of record.
The senate is a continuous body , but
there are always changes in its mem
bership at the beginning of every con
gress which warrant reference to it as
a now senate , and perhaps in the pres
ent instance there is bettor warrant
than usual from the fact that It will
have as its presiding officer the vice
president of the United Slates. The
changes that will take place in the sen
ate when it convenes at noon of March
1 are comparatively fow. Bowen of Col
orado will give place to Wolcott , who is
expected by his admiring friends to bo-
conio a good deal of a figure in national
legislation before his term expires.
The ancient Saulsbury of Delaware ,
who has boon In the senate something
like a generation , will bo succeeded by
Higglns , the first republican the little
state of whipping-posts has over sent to
the national legislature. Palmer of
Michigan will glvo way to McMillan ,
who is hardly the poor of the retiring
senator in ability , but will , neverthe
less , doubtless prove to bo a safe and
useful member. Sabin of Minnesota
will bo replaced by W. D. Washburn , a
member of a family that has made its
mark in the history of the country , nnd
who has himself had experience in pub
lic life. Chandler of Now Hampshire ,
who was elected to fill out 'tho unox-
pircd term of the late Senator Pike , will
retire to await the action of the legisla
ture which meets in Juno , and New
Hampshire will bo represented by Gen
eral Marston. Perhaps the man who will
bo most missed from the senate isRiddlo-
bergcr of Virginia , who will succeeded
by Barbour , but there are few if any of
the colleagues of the outgoing senator
who will regret his departure. Vice
President Morton has been preparing
himself for the duties of a presiding
oflicer , and will doubtless handle the
travel gracefully and deftly.
SUBMISSION A FIXED FACT.
The dual submission bill has been
pronounced valid by the supreme
court. The elaborate opinion by which
the court sustains its conclusions will
be read by constitutional lawyers with
more than ordinary interest. To the
people of Nebraska it is immaterial
upon what basis the court has founded
its dictum. To them the all-absorbing
subject presented is that submission
has become a fixed fact.
To carp about the various points that
wore at i&sue before the court would bo
unseemly as well as futile.
For all concerned it is best that this
decision should have boon rendered at
this time rather than eighteen months
ot two years hence , immediately before
or just after the election. Tlio uncer
tainty of a possible reversal of the pro
hibition and license issues by the court ,
on the ground that the dual bill was of
doubtful constitutionality , would have
been unsatisfactory to all classes of
Now that wo havoabsolute knowledge
that the irrepressible conilict is at hand ,
we shall have ample time for reflection
and free and full discussion. A prohi
bition campaign is dreaded more by
reason of its depressing uncertainty
than its possible consequences. While
wo sincerely regret that this issue has
been forced upon the state at this
stage of its growth , wo confidently
predict that the sound and sober sense
of the great mass of voters will uphold
the otllciont system of high license reg
ulation In preference to impractical
prohibition with its frco whiskov , low
joints ana perjured medical certificates.
AKTIK holding out against the erec
tion of poles and stringing of overhead
wires for the electric railways on the
business streets , tluo council has surren
dered ignominiously to every demand
made by the electric street car com pa
nics. This Is inexplicable. In view of
the fact that in many loading cities
serious objections have boon raised
against the overhead wire by insurance
companies , the fire departments and
heavy property-holders , much more care
should have been exercised by the
council In the matter. In Boston
especially the fire department is making
a protest against the overhead wires.
The experiences which the department
have undergone go to prove that the
insulated shears which are used to cut
the wires in case of fire are not strong
enough to cut the btroot car wires.
The department has been most seri
ously hampered at liros from this cause
and great loss has resulted. It is
proposed in Boston that the electric
railroads should employ a man whoso
duty it shall bo to respond to every
alarm in the districts through which
the wires run and clear the wires in
case of fire. Itmuy not bo a distant day
when the same remedies will hayo to
bo used in Omaha , if our businossHtreets
are to be littered with overhead lines.
Tin : two-cent daily is by no moans a
new departure in Omaha journalism.
It is ns old ns Tin : Biu : itself. The sub
scription of Tnio OMAHA DAILY DEI : as
far buck us July , 1871 , was wolvo cents
per week or fifty cents per month , At
that time Tins BKK was a small , four-
page sheet , with all the news served up
n spicy stylo. In other words ,
THK BHIS has for nearly eighteen
yours boon the cheapest , as well as
jy all odds , the best daily published
n these parts. And it is the
only daily in Omaha that always has
hud a bonu Jicfc paid circulation , wlth-

without lloodTnj Iho town with free
copies delivered on probation , nnd
without n lungf-tcster to inflate its
statements of circulntton with bogus
subscriptions of papers that are piled
up unsold in ovcry news-stand.
Tut : state board of transportation is
getting ready to avail itself of the gen

charges thirty-five dollars fet
htwuling a carload of cattle
from Tokamah to Omaha , a
distance of fifty miles , while the same
car load of Hvo slock IB hauled from
Toknmn to Chicago , over live hundred

never have heard of this discrimina

Fr.i.MOM1 , Neb. , Fob. 2" . To the Editor of
TUB Bii : : : In your Issue of January 2 > there
appeared certain special dispatches relating
to the matter of my visit to Nowburyport ,
Mass. , ut that date.
These dispatches wore of such import as to
Injure mi ) among those who do not know mo
personally , and I bog the privilege of giving
the facts of the case , which , briefly stated ,
are ns follows : I had no quarrel or
trouble with Mr. Hulbort during his sojourn
in Fremont. Ho hnd many quarrels hoio ,
but I was not a party to any of thorn , but on
the contrary , I had been to special labor In
defending Mr. Hulbcrt us ugamst tlio.su who
wcro opposed to him , In order to conserve tlio
peace of our society.
After ho loft Fremont I was applied to by
a committed of thochuich at Nowbur.vport
ns to Mr. Hulbuit's fitness and standing. My
icport was unfavorable.
About ono vcar after ho loft Fremont I
wus informed that Mr. Hulbort hud boon
saying huru things about mo. I made in
quiry as to the matter , and the reports being
fonllrmod , I wont to Nowburyport to look
Into the matter. I found his tongue hod been
for moro-slanueroiiB and wicked than had
been represented to mo , and Immediately
thereafter I preferred charges against
him bcforo tlio chutch of lylngandslander.
The matter was suppressed from time to
time until It eamo about that a council was
called to dissolve the pastoral relations bo-
twcen himself and the church , at which
council 1 put In nn nppoaranco with demand
to bo heard , nnd 1 wus hoard. Tliooutcomoof
the matter was that I substantiated my
charges uttered against him ; while Mr. Hul-
jort expressed sorio\v for what ho had said
about mo , ho claimed when brought to bay ,
that ono of our members now deceased , had
told him these things to him and that ho had
only told what ho had heard ; whereupon I
rested the case , as 1 WAS not at that time pro-
tared to show by ovideuua that , to save him.
iclf , ho had slandered the dead , but which/
am fully prepared to show at tills time.
The council gave Mr. Hulbort the benefit
of the doubt , and decided that the chargeof
ylng had not been sustained.

however , to some unfoieseon circumstances ,
the oftlelals of the road notified the board
that they would not furnish the specllled

It is learned that the company will bo from

make oiui of the parly , as indicated by Tin ;
Br.n this morning. The lieutenant governor
will also remain at his post. This makes It
impossible for Church Howu to warm the

The special effect of the board
in making the trip is to gather information

intelligently on railway questions effecting
the inleicsts of the state. It is understood
that some of the mctnuors will bu accom
panied by their wives. So business mid
