BOSTON just now is going through a
period of sensitiveness and distrust in
local financial circles which is causing
considerable alarm in tha business
world. Within the post fortnight
several heavy failures have boon an
nounced in the wool , hides , and
leather industries. It is hoped
that the crisis has passed and that Bos-
ton's commercial interests have not
been seriously affected by those recent
Muou of the trouble of undermined
paved streets can bo traced directly to
the blind water service pipes. Thou-
aapds ot those laterals from the water
trmlna Ho buried just below the concrete -
-croto at the curb Una ot many of
our streets. There is constant dan
ger ot their breaking either through
dofoot.lvo plumbing , freezing or other
'causes1 , and as their leaking can not bo
readily detected or traced , too often
great damage is done before the break
is discovered. It is claimed that the
catacombs under the pavements on
South Sixteenth street , South Tenth
street , Sherman avenue and Dodge
street were caused by the leaking
ot detective blind service pipes
for months before being discovered.
This being the case , it is well to ques
tion the advisability ot insisting that
lateral water connections , whether they
bouacdpr not , bo mudo every twenty-two
foot to curb line of private property un
do ? the streets now ordered to be paved ,
From past oxi > orloneo it certainly would
too bettor that no blind service pipes bo
laid , and that water connections bo
uuidb ouly when put Iiuo use.
The contest for the republican guber
natorial nomination in Iowa , which hod
boon vigorously carried on tor two
months , culminated on the twenty-fifth
ballot in the convention in favor of Hon.
Joseph G. Hutchison , of Ottumwft. The
successful candidate entered the con
vention far in the roar in the number
ot votes that were pledged to him , nnd
ho owes1 his nomination to the followers
of Wheeler , the farmer candidate , few
of the supporters of Captain Hull hav
ing deserted him until the final ballot ,
before which they undoubtedly saw
the hopelessness of their fight. There
was evidently n very strong feeling be
tween the friends of Hull and Wheeler ,
nnd the nomination of cither of thcso
goiitlomon might hnvo created some
disaffection , but nil will doubtless unite
in heartily supporting Mr. Hutchison ,
whoso nomination was received with
great enthusiasm. The candidate is n
man of Inrgo political experience , hav
ing served four terms ns a state senator ,
and ho is credited with being a judi
cious and skillful politician. His course
In the state sonnto regarding railroad
legislation was somewhat conservative ,
but ho is regarded ns a clean , capable
man , who xvould discharge the execu
tive duties intollligontly and accept
ably. Ho will undoubtedly make an
active and vigorous campaign. The
other candidates tire worthy and capa
ble men , some of whom htxvo already
done the state acceptable service and
had a claim to the endorsement given
The platform congratulates the
country on the restoration of
the republican party to power
nnd endorses the administration ; favors
n liberal construction of the pension
laws , and demands protection of Ameri
can industry , including the products of
the farm , when such protection docs not
foster trusts or trade conspiracies. The
principle nnd polioy of state railway
regulation is roafllrmed , to bo so con
ducted ns to maintain equality among
all localities and individuals. It
is declared to bo the duty of
the state and the federal
government to enact and ox-
cute laws to punish trade con
spiracies , trusts nrid combines. The
past utterances ot the party upon prohi
bition are roufllrmod , and it is declared
to have become the settled policy of the
state regarding which thord should bo
no backward stop. The complete enforce
ment of the law is demanded , which may
fairly bo accepted as am pie acknowledg
ment that it is not being enforced. A
welcome is extended to the now states ,
courts of arbitration for the settlement
of differences between corpora
tions and organized labor are
favored , sympathy is expressed for the
bona lido settlers on the DCS Moines river
hinds , and the platform concludes with
an endorsement of the administration
of Governor Larrabec.
The work of the convention will un
doubtedly bo satisfactory to the largo
majority of Iowa republicans , nnd there
is every reason to suppose thnt the
party will got together as it has always
done and elect its candidates by at least
the usual majority for an off year.
Of the fifteen state elections which
give interest to politics this year , that
of kentucky has boon hold. The next
to occur will bo those of the four new
states , North Dakota , South Dakota ,
Montana nqd. Washington , which will
choose congressmen , state olllcors and
legislators. Governors will bo elected
in Ohio , Virginia , Now Jersey , Massa
chusetts , Iowa and Mississippi. In
New York the highest officer to bo
chosen is a secretary of state , in
Pennsylvania the state treasurer ,
in Nebraska a judge ot the
supreme court , and in Maryland the
state comptroller. In all of those states
vigorous campaigns will bo in progress
within a few weeks , and the trend of
the political current in some of them
will bo watched with great interest by
other than the local politicians.
Although what is termed an "off
year , " the results of these elections , or
those at least in which governors are
to bo chosen , will hnvo a certain signifi
cance. They will indicate to an extent
the judgment of the voters on the
.course thus far of the national admin
istration r and according as majorities
shall vary from those of last year it
will bo possible to obtain.somo idea as
to how far the voters are titill in sym
pathy with the principles and policies
upon which the last national campaign
was fought. As the Kentucky election
distinctly showed that tbo large ma
jority of the voters of 'that state are
still in line with the democratic polioy
enunciated in 1833 , so the result of
the elections in Ohio , Massachu
setts , Now Jersey and Iowa will
indicate in a measure w.hothor
or not the popular sentiment
in these states has undergone > change
regarding national policies. Hence
these olectioaa will possess an interest
not confined to the several slates in
which they will occur.
Regarding the four now states , only
Montana is doomed to bo doubtful , the
democrats still professing to bo hopeful
of carrying that state ; but the repub
lican outlook there has imorovod. If
no mistakes are mudp and a thorough
organization is effected the republicans
of Montana will bo successful.
Republican victories in Massachu
setts , Pennsylvania , Iowa and Nebraska
are assured , probably by majorities that
will show the relative strength of the
party to bo fully maintained. In Ohio
the contest will be very vigorous and
earnest , and while the chances , of suc
cess certainly appear to bo with the re
publicans , there is a prohibition move
ment to defeat tha party thnt is likely
to bo formidable and will render the re
sult uncertain. In Now York the prob
abilities are about oven , while it would
bo a matter of universal surprise if
Now Jersey should fall to go demo
cratic , although there are political
complications thoroalToctlng the democ
racy which should improve republican
chances. Mississippi and Maryland
will doubtless give their usual demo
cratic majorities , and there is very
little reason to expect that Virginia
will fall out of the democratic line , The
recently affected closing of the broach
between the loaders of the faction * in
that Btuto doea not seora to have been
satisfactory to all the antl-Mnhono ele
ment , nml if the republican state conven
tion , which moots next week , should
nominate Mahono for governor , as it is
quite probnblo it will , ho will bo belted
by a largo number of republicans , both
whlto nnd colored.
The jobbers' and shippers' convention
hold nt Atohison for the purpose of dis
cussing the freight transportation prob
lem to the Missouri river was from all
Indications a representative- . Del
egates were present from Kansas City ,
Omaha , St. Joseph , Wyandotte , Sioux
City nnd Atohison , cltios which had
grievances to bring against the rail
roads for discrimination. While the
convention might have boon moro nu
merously attended , the first mooting of
the Kind , looking forward to making
the Missouri river a point for the
basing of freight rates , was eminently
satisfactory. It demonstrated to the
railroads that the cities of the Missouri
river nro in earnest in their demands
for fair play. Tlio strong resolutions
adopted clearly voice the sentiments of
the people , who have boon discrimi
nated against already too long. As an
outcome of the convention , it is moro
than likely that moro radical stops will
bo taken by the commercial bodies rep
resented. The recommendation passed to
organize a freight bureau and to appoint
a commissioner , whoso duty it shall bo
to protect the interests ot the shippers
of the various cities , should llnd favor.
This , however , can bo accomplished
only by a harmony of interests of the
cities on the Missouri river , nnd by n ,
determined nnd united pressure upon
the railroads , to force' them to yield to
the fair demands of the shippers and
jobbers. ' _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
The complaint which Hon. W. J.
Conn oil has filed in court against tbo
gas company will cause n great deal of
comment. On its face it is nn undue
exhibition of malice and stupidity on
the part of the managers or ofUcials of
tlio gras company. While the company
doubtless has the right to shut off the
gas supply from nny house within a day
after its monthly bills have been pre
sented , it isnotcroditablo toils business
judgment to cut the pipes nnd discon
nect , the meters in tno residence
of a well-known and responsible
citizen. These officials must have
known as well as wo do that Mr. Connell -
nell has no intention of decamping , and
would not try to bilk the gas company
out of five dollars' worth of gas.
The fact that Mr. Conncll has been at
war with the gas company for < years ,
should have prompted its managers to
do nothing thnt would give color to a
charge of malice.
In view of the fact that the case is in
the courts , it would be out of place to
discuss the { legal rights of the gas com
pany in tbo premises. In the case of
their managersas in that of the Omaha
police , a little moro courtesy and com
mon sense would have saved them and
the company from a great deal of un
favorable comment.
THE solicitor of the treasury depart
ment will scratch bis head in dead
earnest. Ho has-been called upon to

electricity generated in Canada and in
troduced into this country \vould bo

pears that nn electrical , plant has been
established on the Canadian side of
Niagara. Falls for the purpose of supply
ing Buffalo with electricity , and if the
solicitor of the treasury bo wise ho will
refuse to make a. reply just yet a while ,
on the ground that the treasury de
partment does not answer hypothetical
questions. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
NEW JEIISEY will bo an interesting
state this fall , duo to the approaching
campaign. Inasmuch as the liquor
question is ono of the issues of the day ,
the fact that the prohibition convention
was attended by less than half tbo dele
gates elected Is of peculiar signiflcanc.o.
One can roa'd between the lines and see
that for the most part the supporters of
the third party will throw their stron gth

CINCINNATI has put on a temporary

knowledged lior grief and tiled her informa
tion in the county court , charging McClollnu
with bastardy. She alleges that ho accom
plished her ruin under premise of marriage.
It is doubtless still in mind that lie wooed
and won Tilly while living with a woman
whom ho had deceived into marriage , it being
subsequent ! ) proven that ho had a wife liv
ing in Iowa from whom he had not been di
vorced. Still , the Trechal glrljfoll a victim
to his wiles , though she escaped the humilia
tion ot living xvith him in crime. It turns
our , further , that McClcllan has two wives
living in Lincoln , one of whom lies at the
Willard hospital at the poict of death. Mc
Clcllan was telegraphed for at Denver a few
clays ago , and no came on Monday night.
Tilly bided her tirao and filed the necessary
information for his arrest , which took place
to-day. It is said that thuro is enough evi
dence in hand to send McClolUn to the peni
tentiary for a term of years. Besides an
swering to the charge of bastardy , ho will
also answer to that of bigamy.

In turn charging adultery nt divers times
and places , giving names with whom , and
fixing dates aim places with startling preci
sion. The pictures of the petition or cross-
petition , either , show a very disgraceful

Question of Jurisdiction.
The cane of Charles B. Baily vs. tbo state
of Nebraska , on error from tbo district court
of Saline county , raises a question' that has
not been passed upon by the supreme court ,
and it is of no little interest. It is as to
whether a Justice of the peace has the Jurisdic
tion to try and render Judgment in a case
whore the offense cuarged is assault and bat
tery. In this cose the attorneys for Baily
contend that u justice has no Jurisdiction ,
and wbcn complaint is made for assault and
battery a preliminary examination only can-
be had before the Justice. The question
raised is u mooted one among lawyers , and
opinions vary widely on the proposition. It
is understood that the attorney general
thinks that tbo court will sustain the defend
ant dnd error , and that the opinion of the
lower court wilt bo affirmed. The case will
bo tried at the coming session of the supreme

Frank McCartney , county clerk of Otoo
county , writes the attorney-general for in
formation regarding the now registration
aw. It appears that opinion is divided there
there as to whether or not tbo law applies to
Nebraska City , and the attorney-general
was asked for a construction of tbo law. la
the absence of General Loose , Deputy Stew
art wrote an opinion opining that U docs ,
providing that Otoe's capital has a popula
tion of 2,500 people. It seems possible , how
ever , from the reading of section 1 ot the act
that it might not be applicable to some cities ,
oven though they might have a population of.
over 2,500. It appears that the act is appli
cable only to such cities which shall include
within its boundaries all portions of the voting
ing precinct in which the nity Is situated. It
is said that there are good grounds to ralsa
this sort of a question , and so mo cities of
vastly more than the requisite population
might bo exempt.

loft ho was not around. During her visit ,

of Tnn HKKI Omaha had bailer wako up.
Sioux City commission men hnvo lately boon
down lit this vicinity nml nro ranking a
strong pull lo secure all the llvo stook ship
ments from tbo north Plalta country , to
which , It Is stated , the Union Pnclflo railroad
Is a willing party. Tno Sioux Clly people
represent to the farmers nnd heavy shippers
Unit if they will sand their cnlUo nna hogs
to that market they will get the benefit of
competition , which can't bo had If they ship
to Omahii.
The plan Is to Induce shippers on tho-maln
line from the wostand from Hie CodarUnplds
nnd Albion branches of Iho Union Pnolllo to
send their llvo stock to Sioux City , vln Nor
folk , by making up fast freight trains ut thU
plnco nml Acono , This the road is nnxlous
lo do , because it gives it n longer haul thnn
It would have toOmnha , nnd relieves the line
oust of this cltv. The schoino la well Inld ,
nnd it ( than the secret support of the Union
Pnclllo railroad it will badly damngo Otimhn ,
making her n second or oven n third rate
market , for with what the Chicago ft Northwestern -
western road direct * from Omaha via Blair ,
but few cnttlo and hogs from the North
Plntto country will find iholr way into the
South Otimhn stock yards. The scheme has
been In operation nbout two wooks. nnd ( t is
reported that already heavy shipments have
been mndn over the "Union Pacific's Sioux
City llna. "
The Bchomo U working so well It la reported
ported that the snino combine nro now 'con-
tomplatlng extending the Union Paolo's line
from Fullerton , Nnnco county , on west to
North Phitto. This feeder would draw busi
ness from the main line nil the wny west
from this pluco to North Pintle for n dls-
Inuco of nbout two hundred miles , embrac
ing some of the best stock country in No-
'braska ' , nnd by reason of the conditions
under which it would bo built would bo
claimed by Sioux Qity , nnd according
to this late shipping arrangement , would go
to that city , to thu great injury of Omuhn.
This movement on the part of the Corn
Palnco city to secure business is adroit ,
showing thorn to bo hustlers , and the deni
zens of Nebraska's con.morclnl metropolis
will have to turn their attention to matters
for the benefit of Omaha at largo , instead of
fighting over the locution of public- buildings
nnd scheming for the vote of farms laid out
into town lots.
The Union Pacific railroad u just like any
other business enterprise , cold blooded and
selfish. Its managers will causa it to earn
nil It can.cither by fair or foul menus , for
their tenure of service depends upon the
showing of the net receipts. Therefore
Omaha cannot tnlco it for granted that the
Uuiou Pnclllo corporation Is Its friend nnd
wilt see to it that nil- the freight alone its
lines nro emptied lute its lap. It will not
do it. Anoos.

encouraging reports.
Major T" . S. Clarkson was elected marshal
of the great trades display , which Is to bo
made on September .
Ho will appoint his aides , divide the line
into divisions and generally superintend the
great affair.
The committee , consisting of Joseph Qar-
neau , Amos Field , Robert Eassou and E. E.
Bruce , bos sent Iho following postal circular
to the Jobbers , manufacturers and other
dealers in this city , which explains itself :
"As a merchants and manufacturers' dis
play is contemplated on Wednesday , Sep
tember 4 , in conjunction with the traveling
men , military and firemen's par a Jo , the
ca'nmittcc would respectfully ask your
hearty co-operation in making tha exhibit a
grand success.
"Tho committee- would suggest thai you
notify Amos Field , secretary of the Hichard-
son Drug company , on or before the SOtb , of
your intention to be represented , and state
number of wagons for which you will ro-
qulro position in the uaraiio.
"Please report as early ns possible. "
Many of the circulara'bavo scarcely as yet
reached their destination , but some of them
had no sooner been received thnn Iho re
cipients responded immediately. From
among the responses Iho following are se
lected :
Farrell & Co. , syrups , one wagon , Pacific
Express company , sixty drilled men and
13 wagons ; W. F. Seaman , 13 ; G. H. Mack

dry goods , 1 ; D. O. Clark , coal , 0.
Other responses are expected dally. The
committee insist that every display shall bo
made with both , taste and cure. It holds that
a merchant who is not in favor of making a
creditable appearance ought to remain out of
tbo line. It would do him no good. On the
contrary , it would tend to injure because of
tbo unfavorable comparison which would bo
made by the spectators. The Intention is to
have the grandest display of the kind which
has over been hold in this part of the coun
