To-day is the anniversary of the birth
of Thomas Joflorson. The profit lender
of the party opposed to the federalists ,
o which ho gave the nnmo republican ,
vat , born April 2 , ( old style ) 1713. Re
cently there was issued by the prosl-
Icnt of the national association of demo
cratic clubs a request to subordinate as
sociations to celebrate this anniversary
'in Boino manner suitable to tho' great
occasion , " and a quite general observ
ance of the day by such associations
s probable , 'n the circular of the
ircsidont of the national association
t is said ; "At a time when the
administration of the executive newer
of the federal government , and the con-
rol of the two houses of congress , have
> ut recently passed , or are passing , un
checked , into the hands of a party
avowedly fodarallsh , in corrupt alliance
with a mighty aggregation of powerful
irlvnto monopolies , and practically no-
tnowlcdglng none of the restraints or
imitations imposed by the constitution ,
t is especially Important that the toach-
ngs of the great apostle of American
democracy should bo again most sol
emnly invoiced.1' What claim has mod
ern democracy the democratic party of
o-day to bo regarded as the exponent
of the teachings of Thomas Jofforson'i1
The whole people hold in highest
loner the memory of the author of the
Declaration of Independence. His is
one of the Imperishable names of our
ilstory that will continue to grow in
ustro and in the homngo of a free pco-
ile with the advancing years. Ho was
lot without faults and human weak
nesses. His uncompromising partisinn-
ship , nnd to some extent , also , his per
sonal ambition , made him a trouble
some member of , Washington's adminis-
.ratlon. 'It was ho who , when presi
dent , sot the precedent of removals
from ofllco for political reasons , a
Dollcy which- later democratic presi
dents enlarged to the fullest extent. Ho
was the author of the Kentucky resolu
tions of 1798 , which have been regarded
as the first promulgation of the doctrine
of nulllflcation or secession , and ho was
not always above political intrigue. Yet
he was undeniably ono of the greatest
men of his era , and few did so much to
secure national independence and
firmly establish the foundations of the
republic. He boHoved in tlio union to
the oud of his life , and the record of
his 'public career furnishes no in
stance of his having oyor encour
aged or countenanced sectional
ism. Had the democratic party
followed the patriotic example and
teachings of Jefferson the country
would not have been torn by rebellion ,
for it would have surrendered slavery
rather than have imperilled the union.
But it wandered away from Joilcrsonian
patriotism and became the party of a
section , dominated by the element
which was incurably infected with the
dangerous and destructive teachings
and principles of Calhoun. Although
beaten in the long and bloody struggle
to carry out those principles , as a
party the democracy has not
yet renounced them. The men
who dominate the the party may
confess the hopelessness of over car
rying them into effect , but they do not
therefore the less firmly believe that
they arn right. All democratic talk
about the ascendancy of federalism in
the government , about the limitations
of the constitution , and about the rights
of tho'statos , is simply the echo of Cal-
hounism , and it is a libo'l oa Jefferson
to connect his name with it.
There can bo no objection to an ob
servance of the birthday of Thomas Jof-
torsou. It is an occasion upon which
all Americans , and the friends of liberty
elsewhere , could moat properly unite Jn
honoring the memory of ono of the
wisest and bravest leaders in the
cause of human liberty. But the as
sumption of the democratic party that
it represents Jeffersonian principles ,
or that the party has done so at any
time during the past fifty years , is tofi
preposterous to go unchallenged. The
return of that pa'rty to the princibles ol
JolTorson , as they should bo justly and
fairly interpreted , would bo a welcome
fact , but this is not to bo hoped for so
long i\s the party is dominated by the
clement which learned its political
principles in another and a far different
In the modern history of crime there

than that of the Denver robbery. In

dramatic could hardly bo imagined. Nc

In the broad light of day , at the
busiest hour , and at the most prominent
corner ot the eity , almost In the pres
ence of a score of clerks , with tthu foot
falls of the passing multitude withir
plain hearing , the president of s
banlc was forced , nt the point of a pisto
to ylold up twonty-ono thousuiu
dollars. To obtain this sum he
was obliged to puss out among tlu
clerks and to communicate with the
toiler. Yet he had no opportunity t <
make a. sign. The robber took thi
funds , gracotully retired and in leaving
did not forgot to tip his hat.
' "Billy the Kid" was an artls

Senator Teller , ot Colorado , ycsto
day declared his belief in the useless
ness ot the executive session In connec
tion with confirmations.
For once , nt least , the senator was
right. If ho can stand an open session
every ono of his .colleagues ought to
submit to it willingly. To a marked
degree the executive session is a farce.
It merely excludes the public tempo
rarily from knowledge it has n perfect
right to possess , nd thus Is wrong in
principle. If anything of importance
transpires behind its closed doors , It Is
quickly bruited about. The senators
themselves betray It , nnd the press pro
ceeds to scatter it to the four quarters
of the globe. Thus , while wrong in
principle , the executive session is
barren of result.
The advantage of an open eo&slon
for the consideration of nominations
is obvious. The people have an Inter
est in knowing , and a right to know ,
who is to represent them in office at
homo nnd abroad. They do not want
unworthy servants , nor do they want
good material rejected through the
pique of Senator Teller and his follows.
Doubtless the presence of an audience
in the galleries would temper the utter
ances and stimulate the judgments of
the orators. In the recent discussion
concerning the nomination of Mujrat
Halstcad , Mr. Teller himself was ono
of the most violent in his. opposition and
childish In his denunciation of Mr. Hal-
stead because the latter had chosen at
times to criticize the wealthy and dis
tinguished gentleman from Colorado.
Mr. Toller's action in Itself constitutes
a strong argument in favor of Mr. Tel
ler's proposition to open the doors.
A imiEF period of sober reflection
convinces those who fought and bled
for the honor , that legislative life is a
waste of energy and a strain on ono's
character. Honest mdn rotlro from the
strife with pleasure , while the disrepu
tables cling to it while there is n
dollar In sight. The former will not
stoop to low trickery and scandalous
schemes to secure support for measures
of public good , but cannot escape the
annoyances which surround legisla
tures. The latter are nt homo in the
tide of dissipation and dishonesty and
flourish on booty and bestiality. This
condition is chargeable to the indiffer
ence of the better class of citizens.
They refuse to take an active part in
the primaries nnd conventions and per
mit these' foundations of ollicial life to
bo controlled and managed by schemers
and place hunters.
M. AUSTIN , of Grinnoll , la. , 1ms been
looked upon for sometime ns a promi
nent candidate for representative of
this country to the Argentine Republic.
The selection of this gentleman would
bo fortunate. Ho is a lawyer of moro
than ordinary ability , a successful busi
ness man , and a partner in ono of the
most important manufacturing concerns
in Iowa. It is seldom that a man of his acumen , uprightness of character -
actor and business experience can be
found for such a position as ho is ready
to accept. Mr. Austin is supported not
simply by the party in his state , but
manufacturing interests in general
would bo glad to see him appointed , be
lieving that ho would bo an active
factor in promoting the commercial re
lations of the two Americas.
TIIEUK is no scarcity of tickets or
candidates for ofllco in South Omaha.
Every class and trade Is represented ,
nnd the variety affords the voters an
opportunity to select good men for the
UiiYoront positions. The condition of
municipal affairs demands the best class
of citizens at the holm. The debts cre
ated by necessary public improvements ,
the construction of viaducts inaugurated
and'tho countless expenses which must
bo incurred in paving , sewers , side
walks , etc. , require ability nnd in
tegrity in every department of the city
overnmont. By placing the rolns , in
strong , clean hands , the growth and
prosperity of the city is secure.
THE observation of "An Omahan
Abroad , " printed in THE BEE fortifies
the claim that Omaha real estate is the
heapcst and best investment in thie
western country. Throughout the region -

evidences of collapsed "booms , " with
business property ranging from twenty-
live hundred to five thousand dollars
per front foot. In all the various stages
of Omaha's growth these figures have
not boon approached. In ' comparison
with cities of loss population and infe
rior advantages , Omaha real estate has

THE selection of Garber , Gilchrist
and Gilkcson for secretaries cf the state
bonrd of transportation is a rich com

for representation on the board , and
have finally achieved that greatness
which their importance commanded.

tatcd by the receptof another telegram from
E. E. Myers , saying : "Havo mailed my ro-
) ort ; do you want mo to como ! " It seems
.hat the board sent him a message on Sun
day to bo hero not later than the 4th instant.
O'Kooffo looked up from a letter ho
was reading and made some reference to the
matter and indicated his spirit of annoyance
over it by supplementing the remark with a
mild cuss word. Mount said soniotlilnir about
swearing , to which the valiant Richard replied -
plied : "We're not in session , and I guess I
can swear if I want to. "
"Hadn't wo bettor tell him to como , " in
quired Mount.
"Don't give a - whether ho does , " re
torted O'Keoffe. "Tho only thing wo want is
an explanation from him as to how this work
shall bo done. "
"He evidently wants to come , " said
Mount. "Probably ho is after tlio * 60 wo
would have to pay him. "
O'ICecfo said , "I don't give n cuss for ( ho
SCO. "
Mount rotortcd. "Nor do I. It doesn't
cut nny figure. "
Anderson chipped in , "Probably ho don't
like to come here and lese his job.1'1
O'ICpofo replied , "It would bo better for
Douglas county If ho had lost it two years
ago. "
Ilarrlgan joined In and said , "And on that ,
Dick , "I nm with you. "
Mount sang out , "Well , had wo not hired
lilm 1Jio people would bo complaining on the
ground that ho did us ono honest Job. "
After tboso sallies all agreed that Mr.
Myers should bo asked to come , and a dis
patch to that effect was sent marked "rush. "

LINCOLN. April 1.1
The old'bonrd of secretaries to the state
bonrd of transportation stopped down nml
out this morning. Messrs. OllUosnn , Gil-
: hrlst andGarbor lookup the rolns as though
.hoy were old hands at the business , nnd the
work In the otllco of the atato board of trans-
lortiUlons runs as smoothly as clock nm-
jhlnory. There ts pqsslbly a good omen In
the fact that the names of the now board nil
commence with the letter G , and If so days
of sunshine have dawned for the yeomanry
and shippers of the state. ( MM
Albeit , speaking for himself , 0.3 to the fu
ture policy of the board , Mr. Gllkeson tersely
remarked , "I propose to bo as cold blooded
us n lizard nnd do what I believe to bo
"So far as I am concerned , " said Mr. Gil-
Christ , " 1 propose to act for the people us la
my Judgment shall bo for the best. "
"As for mo , " said Mr. Garber , "I will bo
found kicking along In the harness with my
confreres. Tholsentlmont of ono will prac
tically stand as the sentiment for all. "
The personnel of the now board Is summed
up in a word. Mr. Gtlehrlst is ilft.y-slx
years of ate and has devoted most of his Hfo
n farming and stock raising. Wlilln not
wealthy , ho is well-to-do , and is recognized
as n practical nnd intelligent man. Hn Is n
resident of Alliance , 13ox Uutto county.
Judge Gllkeson is foriy-ono years of ago.
For the past ilflccn years ho lias boon In the
practice of law at Wahoo , Siuinuors county ,
and on the whole has been successful. The
state board express the opinion that ho will
prove a safe legal advisor , although n demo
crat. Mr. Garbor is much the youngest
member of the board. Ho is not twenty-
eight years of itgo , but those who know htm
jest regard liim as n man of good
udgmont and thoroughly competent to per-
'orm the duties of the olllco to which ho has
boon called. Professionally , ho is u banker.
Mr.Varing's successor , C. H. Holmes , of
Uoatrico , is n young man of steady habits
and pleasing address , and Is said to be frco
'rom alliances or tie-ups , calculated to nn-
.agonizo any member of the board of his
superiors. The now board thus organizes
itiJor favorable circumstances , and ttio pub-
lo bore confidently expect smooth future
work , and such action as will tend to har
monize and sustain general good feeling.
Secretary IJI\VH Snys No.
In a moment of generosity during the olos-
ng day of the Nebraska legislature , the
louse of representatives voted away several
of the chairs and desks which had been used
by members of that boay and the reporters ,
and which wore said to bo a part of the state's
> roperty. The chair occupied by the speaker
during the session was voted to htm , nnd the
; hair and desk occupied by Uoprcsontative
Hays were voted to his widow. When the
matter came to the knowledge of the secre
tary of the state ho declared that ho would
not recognize the right of the house to vote
away any of the property bnlonging to the
state , nnd that he would interfere- any at-
, empt was made to rcmovo any of it from the
capitol. The chair voted to the speaker ,
lowover , was taken out and away without
us knowledge , nnd It is slyly whispered that
t will be sent for. The secretary says that
md ho known the chair was being taken
'rom the building ho would have stopped
t , and had the question settled by the courts
as to whether or not the legislature had a
right to give away the state's property. Ho
says that ho is satisfied Unit neither house
can donate n cent's worth of the property of
, ho state legally , any more than they can
give away the state house itself. Ho further
itatcs that ho had guards posted who were
nstructca to prevent the rolnoval of any of
the desks or chairs , or any other property ,
and that if even the speaker was allowed to
jut away with anything it was a broach of
rust on the part of the guards. The ro-
iprtors iiro out their chairs , but the impres
sion is strong that nothing will bo dona to
retain the chair taken by the speaker and
that the chair and desk voted Hays' widow
will go to her. It is said that u remonstrance
ought not to bo made to this in any event.
The District Court.
The case of Benjamin Scuncffc ot al , vs
Jeorgo Travcr , which took up the tiino of
Fuc'go Field and a Jury nearly all of last
vcek , was decided to-day nnd judgment en-
ered for the pifeintiffs for $2,500. Tim sum
nvolvcd in the case was $10,500 , but tno
status of the Issue wore fully stated in Tan
inn lost Wednesday morning. It was among
.ho most stubbornly contested trials over
intcred upon in the district court of Lancas-
or county. The case , indeed , was fought
nch by inch , onu witness having bocn kept
on the stand over fourteen hours , and others
intil the patience ot judge and Jury was
sorely tried. Uut , like Shakespoaro's ghoit ,
even now the cause will not down , and geese
o the supreme court on appeal.
This case ended the trials in the district
court for this term. Motions wore the order
or to-day. Lawyers made them much after
he spirit of legislators in passing upon bills
on the closing day of the Nebraska lopisla-
uro , They acted much as though they wore
iw'ullr tired and longed for rest.

tilled was refused on the stock market at
Omaha and sent hack to Lincoln during the

to aJO : ! o'clock this afternoon is rather dami

Ono of tlio Now Trains to Hun Be
tween Denver and Ohloniro.
A train is nowhere nowadays unless it Is /
vestibule. The vostlbulo Is all the rngo , and *
In order to bo in style the Union Paolllo is
adding moro trains of that description. A jl'
now ono , Just from the shops , made its .initial
trip yesterday and carried n party of railroad
oOicmls nnd newspaper men to Fremont and
return. The train was simply on trial , nnd ,
ns it proved perfectly satisfactory , to-day It
will begin Its regular duties carrying passen
gers between Chicago and Donvor. The ar
rangement between the Union Paclflo nnd
Chicago & Northwestern calls for-four solid
vostlbulo trains between Chicago nnd Den
ver , two of which nro furnished by the
Union Pacific and two by the Northwestern.
The train which made the trial trip yester
day was the llrst ono turned out by the Union
Pacific and It's a beauty in every way. It Is
composed of a uaggngo car , smoker , day
couch , reclining chair car and a Pullman
sleeper , all fitted up In the latest stylo. The
cars have been In the shops nt Omaha for
thrco weokB bolus' fitted up for this
service nnd the cost for each
was about $1,330. The next train
however , will bo turned out In shorter order
and will bo ready for the road in about two
weeks. 1
The short trip yesterday showed the nd- \ \
vantage of the vestibule over the old trains
In the absence of jarring nnd the freedom ,
from dust. The train arrived in Fremont
shortly boioro noon , and after a walk about
the city and dinner at the Eno house , the
party returned , reaching Omaha about 8
o'clock. The gentleman composing the party
ivoro Assistant General Manager Ed Dick
inson , Demurrage Commissioner A ; O.
Jones. Robert Uaxtor , E. Buckingham ,
A. M. Collott , foreman of the car de
partment , and Charles Trlpp , representing
tlio Aaron French spring company of Pitts-
burg. The train wns drawn by cuglno 823 ,
