A SENATORIAL DKfEAT.
The Issue made by the Illinois sena
tors In the mnttor of the nppolntmontof
nn internal revenue collector has boon
docidcd by the president against the
senators. The was the most important
controversy relating to the control ot
the patronage in the states since the
memorable Issue botwooii Iloscoo Conk-
ling and President Gnrfield , and now
as then the administration maintains
its constitution nl prerogative as the ap
pointing power , subject only to the
"advico and consent" of senators , as
provided in the constitution , but under
no obligation to consult them in ad
vance of nominations.
The case in point has heretofore boon
referred to. Dr. Wllcox was the can
didate of Representative Cannon for In
ternal rovcnuo collector of the Eighth
Illinois collection district , ombraco'd in
the congressional district represented
by Cannon. Senator Ciillom also re
sides In this district , and ho had an
other man whom ho wished ap
pointed collector. Wllcox was appoint
ed , to assume the duties of the ollico
July 1. At the time this was done Sena
tor Cullom was In Now York investigat
ing the railroad question , and us soon
ns that was concluded ho hurried to
Washington and had nn interview with
the pro.-ildont in 'which ho protested
against the appointment and claimed
that ho should have boon consulted ,
especially ns the ofilco to bo filled was
at his homo. Subsequently Senator
Purwcll called on tbo president and
urged the view of the matter presented
by his senatorial colleague , and finally
the two senators joined in a written
protest which was sent to the secretary
of the treasury , and by him submitted
to the president. This wns not against
the man appointed , but the policy of
making an appointment in a territory
partly senatorial without consulting the
senator. The president has probably
had no more delicate task presented to
him than that of deciding this issue ,
but he performed it promptly and effect
ively. The appointment of Dr. Wilcox
having been made in good faith , and
thcro being nothing against him on the
score of character or qualifica
tions , ho will receive the com
mission , and his nomination will
at the proper time bo sent
to the senate for its "advico
and consent , " as required by the con
stitution. It will then bo the privilege
of the Illinois senators to oppose con
firmation , and thereby make an issue
as to the right of senators to dictate as
well as advise and consent to appoint
ments , if they doom it wise and expedi
ent to do so , iu which event the country
will bo given an opportunity to see
how far "senatorial "
courtesy" may go
in sustaining the extraordinary claims
Meanwhile there can bo no doubt
that the intelligent and candid judg-
niQnt of the country will approve the
attitude of the president in this realtor ,
with all that it implies. The constitu
tion distinctly provides that the presi
dent shall nominate public olllcors to
bo appointed , and contains no sug
gestion that the relations of senators to
appointments begin before- nominations
are submitted to them. The president
consults with senators and representa
tives not because ho is under any con
stitutional obligation to do so , but
chiefly as a matter of conven
ience and courtesy. Ho can not
have personal knowledge of the
vast number of applicants for
positions , nor has ho time to acquire it ,
and ho must consequently depend
largely upon members of congress for
information as to persons worthiest of
being appointed. Apart from this there
is a courtesy duo to congressmen in per
mitting thora to reward their friends
and to uatne these whom they prefer
for an otllco to Je filled. But if it were
possible lor the president to select men
for the offices without consulting sena
tors or representatives his right to dose
so would t > o unquestionable. The as
sumption of senators , therefore , of a
ight to bo consulted as to nominations ,
which may carry with it virtual dicta
tion , and thereby take from the presi
dent the Initiative of appointment con
ferred by the constitution , while leav
ing upon him all the responsibility ,
can not under any state of circumstances
bo successfully defended. It is an as
sumption which has grown up within
the past twenty-live years , and derives
no warrant from the earlier practice in
the distribution of federal patronage.
It is an expression of the dictatorial
spirit and the tendency to usurpa
tion of powers and privileges
which have of late years characterized
the sonuto , to Its material loss In popu
lar respect and confidence. President
Harrison has dond wisely in refusing
to surrender to this spirit , and in main
taining his constitutional prerogative.
Ho may. find that ho has run athwart
of the law of "senatorial courtesy , " but
he need not hesitate to take the consequences
quences , having the conviction that ho
has sustained the dignity and right of
his ollico , and the assurance that ho
will have the approval of the fair and
candid judgment ot the country.
The massacre at Forest City , Arkair-
mis , adds a most sanguinary chapter to
the history of political tragedies which
has been mudo in the south within the
present your. The assassination of
Clayton , the brutal outrages at Grotna
and ut L.afayotto . , Louisiana , and the
ftlTalr at Forest City , although unlike in
character , may still bo fairly associated
us springing from a like spirit and mo
tive. Each and all of them denote the
continued existence , among southern.
democrats , of a bitter and Implacable
hostility to republicans , and particu
larly to the colored citizens of the
south who adhere to the republican
party. While it may bo grunted that
there is a conuorvatlvo element which
does not approve uuch outrages as huvo
recently occurred , ns shown in 'tho fact
that tome of the more reputable demo
cratic papers o [ thu south huvo vigor
ously denounced the Louisiana occur
rences , yet the evidence is that this
element exorcises very llttlo in
fluence , and none ut all in exigencies
when its influence might bo most
useful. Its conn sol receives attention
when pouce prevails and the demo
cratic majority are in control , but the
uiomout 'that control Is challenged uud
must bo fought for , the conservative
counsel ceases to have any considera
tion , and in order to hold power no
means are too cruel , brutal and blooily.
The affair at Forest Cltygrow out of
a school district election , but this was
merely the opportunity for venting an
tagonisms that have existed for years.
White men were involved on both sides ,
so that It was not so entirely a race con
flict as were the affairs In Louisiana ,
yet It was the demand of the colored re
publicans that they should have the
representation they were on titled
to , and which they proposed to insist
upon , that brought on Uio conflict.
The accounts ngrco ' .Imtthoro was bad
temper on both sides , and that each
party wns guilty of intemperate utter
ances. The blame of this may rest
equally on both parties , but the fact re
mains that on the ono side there was a
demand for simple justice , which , had It
been accorded , would have averted the
conllict with Its resultant bloodshed.
And what is hardly less to bo deplored
is the fact that no ono is likely to ho
hold responsible for at least two cold
blooded assassinations Incident to
this alTnir. The immunity of the as
sassins of Clayton will probably bo re
peated in the case of these who pursued
the wounded colored man , Necly , to his
hiding place and riddled him with bul
lets. The authorities are cither in sym
pathy with the assassins or too cow
ardly to hunt them down.
Southern democrats can not justly
complain if thcso events croitto in the
minds ot tbo republicans in the north a
distrust of their patriot assurances and
loyal promises. Local though thcso
outrages have boon , when these who
are responsible for them escape all pun
ishment , when thn authorities do not
oven niako an attempt to bring any ono
to justice , they must bo regarded as
evidences of a prevailing spirit and sen
timent with which these who are
charged with administering the laws
and preserving the peace and order of
society are in full accord. And rolloct-
ing that most of these who are in au
thority in the south ewe their positions
to just such methods , and perhaps ex
pect to rely upon them for future pro-
fcrmont , the explanation of their in
difference to such occurrences as wo
refer to is apparent.
LET THEM llESUlimT IT.
The moro fact that the proposition
to issuso three hundred thousand dollars
lars of school bonds has boon voted down
does not justify the board of education in
refusing to resubmit a modi Pied propo
sition. The lack of interest manifested
by our citizens in the proposed erection
of needed school buildings is by no
means to bo taken ns a popular expres
sion against further school house
buildings in Omaha. While it is true
that ninety per cent of tho- voters of
Omaha abstained from voting last Sat
urday , it does not follow that the people
ple are opposed to a rational
policy for maintaining our public
schools. It goes without saying that
the bonds would have carried if the
board had listened to unbiased advice ,
dropped the High school addition
scheme and limited the estimate for
any now school hotiso to thirty thousand
The vote against the bonds was largely
ono of ignorance , prejudice and a stupid
idea that to issue bonds would mater
ially increase our taxes. Personal
animosity against members of the
board was chioQy responsible for the
impression created in certain quarters
that the board intended to use the pro
ceeds of the bonds for running the
schools , when its income from
licenses and fines should bo sutli-
ciont to maintain thorn. Fully ono-
third of the vote cast against the bonds
was under this delusion , whereas the
fact is that the board could neb expend
a dollar of the proceeds of bonds except
for the purchase of school lots and the
construction of school houses. These
who voted against the bonds on account
of high taxes were equally deluded.
There is no difference to the tax-paper
whether the levy is made to pay in
terest on bonds or to pay rent for store
rooms and dwellings converted Into
school-rooms. Rented school-rooms nro
at best a makeshift and not ono out often
ton is fitted for the accommodation of
teachers and pupils.
Omaha can not have efficient schools
without commodious school houses. The
erection of these buildings during the
present season is imperative. They
should bo built this summer because wo
will need them next winter , and because
cause their construction will materially
help to hold us up against a decline of
building operations and lack of employ
ment for workingmon.
Since wo are to have n school board
election on the first Monday in Juno ,
why not resubmit the revised bond
proposition on the same day ? There
will bo interest enough worked up
meantime to draw a respectable vote ,
and there is no doubt whatever that
two hundred thousand dollars for school
houses and sites will bo voted by a largo

A city can not stand still any moro
than can u business firm. It either goes
forward or backward. Omaha must
forgo ahead and keep at the front of the
procession with other western cities.
This can not bo done by depending upon
natural advantages and waiting for for
eign capital. The millionaires of Omaha
must stop to the front and dovlso and
execute projects that will afford steady
employment for workingmen and
put into circulation among our
merchants the enormous surplus
they have accumulated in our
banks. They have made their money
in Omaha , and thpy ought to keep on
turning it ever , not by cent per cent
loans , but by investing it in factories ,
mills , elevators and additional railroad
facilities. Lot them show confidence
in Omaha's future , and they will hnvo

LINCOLX. May 31. I
Lincoln plumbers have reached out thol
hand to their Omaha brethren. The visit o
S. J. Murphy and J. V. IJrcunou , of Omaha
representatives of the union there was regarded
gardod ns ominous last night , and vorlflca
tlon catno this morning when eighteen inoin
bors of the craft refused to go to work. Tlio
union boys hero openly say that concessions
must bo made before they will turn a bond
It Is understood that the Lincoln boys nro
brought Into the muddle In this way :
The boss plumbers have determined to
fight this strike to the bitter end. ana have
organized for suit protection. Two Lincoli
employers , Messrs. Hooker and O'Neill , bavo
gene to Omaha and are working with their
own hands on jobs m order that the bosses
may come out victorious. The dolegatioi
came down to secure the return of these cm
ploycrs to Lincoln. They say that thsy mot
representatives of all the shops last nigh
and It was agreed that no work would bo
done this inoriilnt ! unless the bosses would
ngrco to return from Omaha immediately
It is difficult to ascertain how many men wll
bo affected by this order. The visitors claiu
that the eighteen will certainly rcfuso to
work to-morrow unless the Lincoln bosses
agree to lot the Omaha strike alone.
Pending an answer to their demand , the
boys chose to lay off , to-dny , as they put It ,
but , as the "bosses" snow no disposition to
cater to thorn , the probability is that the
strike is on horoas well as In Omaha. At a
o'clock , to-day , no answer had been rocolvoi
from Omaha , ana the word goes that tbo
strike Is regular.
The District Court.
Yesterday afternoon and to-day , Judge
Field heard an equity cause , entitled Charles
P. Larson vs Charles J. Roman and others.
The action was ono upon liens on the carriage -
riago factory between N and O streets ,
recently built , and the proceeding was to ascertain -
certain the validity of the liens and the order
of their priority. Thcro were mortgages
and labor and material men's liens. Mostly
the lions were admitted and testimony was
only adduced as to the mechanic's lien , f.Ict
by Charlui P. Larson , a painter and glazier ,
who charged for n certain number of windows
dews In the building and the work dono. the
amount bo claimed being disputed. There
was also the lion of lirown & Co. , lumber
merchants , for lumber supplied , the question
here being merely us to the priority. After a
long and patient hearing , , the casd was sub
mitted upon the facts as stated , but at the
hour THU BCR representative loft the court
room , the records had not boon uiadc. It is
understood , however , that the court will
hold that the Brown lien is entitled to the
priority , and that foreclosure of the mort
gage will not bo for the best interests of all
of the parties interested.
The city of Lincoln and Lancaster county
are evidently on the war-path. They are
the plaintiffs in thirty-seven cases lilcd for
trial in the district court to-day. The de
fendants are tax delinquents , and the cases
are simple foreclosures of tax hens.

Acirr.'trnto Bt/iut Appropriations.
A great deal ot surprise ) Is manifested over
the aggregate of the appropriations of the
late legislature. At the close of the session
the newspaper reporters put the aggregate
at about $ ioOO,000 , but Auditor Bcnton'a
statement , published the other day after n

This discrepancy can bo accounted for.
Early in the session Tim Bun's correspond
ent compiled n table showing the amount
asked for by each department and ntatu in
stitution , as expressed in their reports to tlio
governor. These requisitions uggrcgalcJ

The lust Item Includes "institutions , school
land expenses , capital expenses , ruvcnuo
books , state printing , county treasurers' fee ,

most nutnblo part Is the reduction In the con *
structivo account of over a half a million.
There is nn ndvauco In all other depart *
uionts , but the state and the state's business
nro moving. The increase of $75,000 In "In
cidentals , " which Includes the maintenance
of slate institutions , Is small when ono con
siders the lucrcaso la their number and
wants. The state board bus been visiting
the instltutiong nnd putting their affairs on
a fooling wilh their allowances. There baa
boon some fear that the Uontrlco institute
for fooblo-mlnded children will run short of
funds for the last thrco or four months of
the biennial period , but n member of the \
board says it has boon managed on nn ox- '
travngnnt scale herotoforo. At the Lincoln
hospital for insane the board have directed
the discharge of certain help that will reduce
the expense account by about $ 'J75 per month.
The other Institutions nro supposed to luiva
allowances largo enough lo pull through
without serious Inconvenience If their uiana *
gors will use reasonable economy.
Successful Jp.ll Break.
The prisoners confined In tlio city jail
made a successful break for liberty , to-day ,
at noon. In somo.way those confined In the
"big cngo" secured possession of an old ar ,
and during the quietest hour of the day ,
pried open the door and walked Into the
streets. Five of the number were tramps ,
but Harry Raymond , tlio young man bound
over to the district court on the charge of
burglary , was among the number. Two
others , also , who were booked to answer for
Mitchell Again Skips.
E. C. Mitchell called the turn on Sheriff
Mollck , last night , as the incoming Burling
ton passenger train neared Havolock , the
first station north of Lincoln. Mitchell was
wanted hero for running off mortgaged prop
erly , nnd bad bcon arrested at Dakota City ,
where ho was turned ever to the sheriff , ycsj
torday morning. The prisoner accompanied
MellcU so quietly that ho was wholly dis
armed , nnd , biding his time , jumped from *
the train , and made good his escape. Pursuit <
was useless , for the darkness of the night
made it possible for him to got Into hiding
before thu train could bo stopped.
