MOST of the talk about a scarcity of

IF Till ! republicans of the Second dis
trict must nominate a man for congress
* who boars the B. & M. brand , they
ought to find sorao man of brains , ability
nnd physical force enough to assort
himself. An Indian in fi'ont of a to
bacco etoro will hardly satisfy the bal
ance of the state ,
THK running of oloctrlo motor trains
through the streets ol this city at a
speed varying from ton to fifteen miles
an hour Is dangerous and should not be
permitted. The council has full power
to regulate the time and manner of op-
porating such street cars within the city
andnui ordinance to that olToot should
bo passed at once.
THK Atlanta Constitution states that
for the first time since 1850 Georgia
bos this year raised corn enough to
eupply local wants and have a surplus
of about a million bushels. When south-
urn farmers learn the proper econom
ical lessons which constitute the stock
in trudo of the good husbandmen , there
is no reason why the South should no !
bo prosperous.
Tim jute trust which defied congress
to limit its powers , aud was boat ou
equoezlng the southern cotton planter
for all ho was worth , is not likely to re-
pout its tyranny again. The south is
wrought up to a high pitch of indlgna-
tiou against the bagging trust , and the
eouthorn planters have taken vigorous
measures to protect their intoro'sts in
the future. Laws have boon enacted
in many of the southern states for the
purpose of chocking the exactions , and
it Is highly probable that the attention
of congress will bo directed to the ovil.
The Qougrcsslonal committee appointed
to investigate the operations of the
jute trust would fall in its duty if it did
not report the underhand methods
adopted to corner tha jute market.
The representative ot the Omaha
TrorW-I/craltl at Lincoln has interviewed
Secretary of State Laws concerning the
objections raised by Tim BUB to hla
candidacy for the congressional vacancy
in the Second district. When asked
whether ho had anything to say in re
ply , Mr. Laws thought httlo was neces
sary to bo said.
' 'The attitude of Tun HER toward promi
nent republicans , " said Mr. Laws , "is well
known. No public man is safe from its
attacks , and as the public understands its
policy well and is familiar with the plans
and schemes ot the editor , it can do llttlo
harm. " * *
As to the charge of being a railroad tool ho
says that Is sot old and threadbare that no
ono need pay nny attention to It , ICvcry man
Is n railroad man who is not continually
howling about the extortions of corporations
and Is wilting to give even a railroad com
pany justice and n fair show.
This is the same old song which
every corporation politician from
Church Howe down to Vandorvoort bag
boon singing for tlio lost , twolva years.
Will Mr. Laws uamo any public man
who has an honorable record nnd has
not betrayed the people whom Tim Bun
lias wantonly attacked ? Will ho point
out among the mon who have boon
assailed by THK Buu any man who did
not deserve to bo denounced ? What
does ho moan by his reference to the
"well-known policy of Tun BEH" and
"tho plans and schemes of its editor ? "
Does ho want to bo understood to say
that TUB BEE has any policy at vari
ance with the public Inturost , or the
good of the party ? Does ho moan to in
sinuate that the editor of Tun BEE has
any design to profit from tha candidacy
of nny particu'ar aspirant , or
has any scheme by which
TUB BEE is to secure patronage ?
Has Mr. Laws or any other state officer ,
congressman or senator ever been
asked to contribute ono dollar , directly
or'indlroctlyj to the support of THK
Perhaps Mr. Laws believes all the
vile slnndors and exploded fabrications
about the editor of THE BEE that have
boon the stock in trade of railroad poli
ticians. Ho cannot , however , pretend
with any decency that ho is any
thing else politically than the moro
creature of railroad inlluonco. This
charge may be very threadbare , just as
stubborn facts often aro. Has Mr. Laws
forgotten the confidence game ho
played on the people less than twelve
mouths ago ? Is his mind
so feeble that ho docs not remember the
game he played juat before the last state
convention when , as a member of the
railroad commission , ho voted to reduce
freight rates , and after the state con
vention had heartily endorsed his course
tuwiod ever and voted that the reduc
tion bo indefinitely postponed ? A man
need not bo an enemy of railroads to
condemn such duplicity.
But there are none so blind as those
who will not seo. Mr. Laws and those
who , like him. owe their elevation in
political life to their subserviency to
railroad bosses , never will admit that
the republican party of Nebraska haa
been demoralized by the pernicious
interference of corporation politicians.
The condition of the party in Ne
braska in this respect has afforded a
text for unfavorable comment in remote
sections of the country. In proof of
this we only need quote the following
editorial from the Springfield ( Mass. )
Republican :
'There is a vacancy in the Second con
gressional .district of Nebraska , caused by
the douth'of James Laird. Wo refrained in
our obituary notice of him to state his atti
tude toward railroad legislation. For six
years ho virtually sat in congress as the at
torney of the Chlcago.'Burllagton & Qulncy
railroad. The Second district has been for
years considered tha political preserve of
that thoroughly ramified corporation. Now ,
no member of tho- republican party of Ne
braska would seriously enter the canvass for
that district without first being willing to
make himself solid with the Chicago , Bur
lington & Quincy. Unless the advances of
other roads in that district have procured amore
moro healthy situation , the next member
will bo mortgaged upon railroad matters Just
as M'- . Laird was. Will any ono tell us how
statesmen can bo grown in Nebraska under
such limitations ) "
This is plain talk from a source that
cannot bo charged with malice or sel
fish designs. It is not inspired by ou-
mity to railroads , but simply points out
the danger to free institutions by the
corporate control of the national legis
The railroad politicians of the Second
district may resent this sort of talk , but
the people who do not depend upon the
railroads for their existence must
fool keenly the disgrace that attaches
to Nebraska when she is advertised as a
railroad preserve and her congressmen
as moro dummies doing the bidding oi
masters who do not oven live in Ne
When congress resumes considoratiot
of the subject of tariff revision it will
bo confronted by a now complication ,
This will bo found in tha attitude of the
iron manufacturers of Now England ,
No circumstance in the economic his <
tory of recent years has boon more sig
nificant than the movement of those
manufacturers to obtain relief for their
declining and unprofitable industries bi
the abolition of duties on the raw ma
torlal. It is an unqualified confes
sion , by mon who have hltherh
been among the most unoom
promising supoortors of protection , thu
that policy , as applied to raw materials
Is not only no longer helpful to the irot
interests , nt Now England , but that il
continued it must result in the complete
destruction of those interests. The im
portance and force of this movement ii
in the fact that it is not confined to i
few manufacturers and to special locali
ties , but is gonoral. The petition whiot
will acquaint congress with the require
ments and demands of the iron
Industries of Now England ho ;
received the signature ot i
largo majority ot the manutaa
turors ot that section , and there will hi
very few of them not represented whet
it goes to congress.
Tha decline ot the iron industries o
Now England has been going on to
several years , and has boon rapid sine *
tha application of the cheaper fuel sup
piled by natural gas to the similar industries
dustrios of Pennsylvania , while tha
state also on joys other udvautngos. Tin
development of Iron industries In the
south must also have had an affect upon
these ot Now England , as it has upon
other sections. Having to control these
unfavorable conditions to their pros
perity nnd progress , the iron interests
of Now Encland have found the addi
tional burden of high duties on raw ma
terials coal and iron ere to bo un
bearable , and steadily the Industries
have declined , until nt this ttino the
business does not amount to fifty per
cent of what it was ton years ago.
Establishments which a few years ago
were among the largest in the
country have closed altogether ,
while others are doing but ono-
half or ono-Uxlrd bt the business
in the years ot their highest
prosperity. Numerous instances are
given of great works which formerly did
an immense business that are now closed ,
nnd very few of these in operation are
making nny monoy. In a word , every
branch ot the iron industries of Now
England is being unprofltably operated ,
axcopt a few establishments that pro
duce specialties , nnd the chiot reason
which the manufacturers give for this
state ot alTaira Is the tariff on raw mate
What the Now England manufactur
ers propose to ask ol congress is ,
that iron ere , coal and coke
shall bo put upon the free list ,
ns they were before , and that the duty
upon pig iron nnd scrap iron and scrap
stool bo restored to the ante-bellum ruto
of twonty-'four per cent ad valorem.
Governor Amos , of Massachusetts , him
self an extensive manufacturer and in
sympathy with this movement , said re
garding it that "it is not a question ot
politics , it is a question ot life or death. "
The very largo majority of those manu
facturers are republicans , and they are
moving for free raw material , as Gov
ernor Amos explained , because it they
do not secure this relief they
fool that their industries will bs doomed
for the sakoof the prosparlty of Penn
sylvania , or at best can but prolong a
miserable oxistonco. With the iron
manufacturers of Now England solidly
demanding raw materials in order to
save their interests fr6m ruin , and
many of the woolen manufacturers ask-
inir for free wool , the attitude ot the
representatives of that suction in the
next congress on tarilf revision will bo
ot surpassing interest to the country ,
and the question of the possible general
effect of this Now England movement
upon the readjustment of the revenue
policy of the govortfinont becomes ono
of very great , importance.
As now arranged , the tour of the
delegates to the international American
congress will not extend farther.west
than Omaha. It may" bb found expedient -
podiont , however , to ahango this ar
rangement in order to satisfy the de
mands of farther western points which
dcsiro to entertain the distinguished
visitors. Denver , for example , is dis
posed to antagonize the plan of termin
ating the tour at Omaha , the Republic
an of that city observing that "to turn
back at Omaha won II give the
visitors the impression that
west of Omaha there is
nothing to bo seen , " and thnt paper
cUls upon the chamber of commerce to
protest against the adoption of a pro
gramme which would ignore Denver.
San Francisco may bo expected to put
in a demand for recognition , and with
much better claim than the Colorado
capital , while doubtless there are sev
eral other cities which would Hue to bo
honored with a visit. But obviously , if
all the time of the delegates is not to bo
cousumcd in travel thoro" must bo a
reasonable limit to their tour , nnd
it seems to us the proposed
arrangement of the " " representa
tive of the state department is judi
cious. It will keep the visitors jour
neying moro than a month , and the
country to bo traversed will give them
a very thorough impression ot both the
manufacturing and agricultural resources -
sources of the United States , which are
the chief matters of interest to them.
To prolong the tour and delay the
mooting of the congress is not desira
ble , as it is to bo presumed the time ot
some of the delegates is limited , and
besides wo should wear the visitors out
by undertaking to show thorn all the
wonderful things of this great country ,
among which the attractions of Denver
are unquestionably to bo included , Lot
the procession halt in ltd westward
march at Omaha.
There is ; i good deal of method in the
madness which the county commission
ers exhibit at their sessions. While
they are fuming and roaring at each
other hip jobs are pulled through under
cover of the firo. Just now the tax
payers of Douglas county euro very little -
tlo about the feud between Anderson and
O'Kceffo , but they are anxiously wait
ing for the commissioners to take stops
to recover the money fraudulently taken
out of the treasury by the grading con
tractors. If it bo true that there has
boon a forgery committed in the change
of the rate from twonty-flvo to thirty-
five cents a yard , the contractor can bo
made to disgorge the overcharge. If
it bo not true that there has boon a
forgery the commissioners stand sol- (
canviated of aiding and abetting a gi
gantic swindle , This is not all , The
question is , how did it come that the
contractor was allowed pay for seven
teen thousand yards moro than the sur
veyor's estimates called for. Such
transactions cannot bo allowed to pass
by in silence.
The board of education has again
managed to insert a square peg into n
round hole , They have elected Lee
Eatollo to act as the board's attorney
for the coming year at a salary of five
bund red dollars. Mr , Eatollo is a fair
poltco court lawyer , Ho may even bo
above the average in conducting a crim
inal cose in the district court , But
when it comes to the very questions
upon which the board needs advice
Mr. Estollo is not known to have any
experience above the average of law
students. The questions Involved in the
legality of bond propositions and the in
tricate constitutional problems with
which the attorney of , the board has to
deal are beyond Mr. Estolle'a depth.
When thiTbanrd strikes nny legal snnfi
it will have to employ a lawyer. Thh
is known to every member ol
the board. Then why was
Estollo elected ? Simply because
the partisan strikers in the board wnnt
to pay off their political debts ami
expect Estollo to turn in and help to
pack the primaries in their interest
next month. And yet wo have boon
told time nnd again Umt the school
board is not in politics.
TitKlnws against combines and trusts
in the constitutions of the two Dakotas
are said to bo the concentrated essence
of all the best economic philosophy In
the statutes of other states. Trusts are
hit squnroly between the oyos. Fran
chises of corporations mid associations
nro void where the object of such asso
ciations is to control the price of any
commodity or the cost ot oxnhango or
transportation. Railroads nro prohib
ited from owning carnllol or competing
lines , from consolidating their stock ,
property or franchises. The legisla
tures are vested with power to enact
laws regulating aud controlling the
rules of charges for the transportation
of passengers and freight by rail nnd
dispatches by wlro. These nro excel
lent constitutional provisions but they
may remain n dead letter for years. The
question is , will mbn bo elected to the
legislature who will fearlessly enact
laws-to enforce the constitutional pro
visions ?
THK detention of a guest of the Paxton -
ton hotel on the suspicion of having in
his possession counterfeit money while
wholly without foundation has , never
theless , its palliating circJinstancos.
The arrest was made by the police at
the instance of a merchant and it was
certainly their duty to take notice of
the complaint. There was no necessity
however of the police acting in an
arbitrary manner. The gontlomnn
made a straightforward explanation ,
and could have established his-idontity
and business relations through the hotel
clerk without the humiliation of being
dragged to the police station. An ounce
of common scnso would bo worth a
pound of bull-hondcdncss on such occa
sion , nnd the case In question is a fair
illustration of the lack of discretion of
the avorugo policeman.
IN A letter to the British-American
society of Chicago Goldwin Smith looks
forward to uncommercial as well as po
litical union Of'Cohada with the United
States in the near future. It Is hardly
probable , however , that Prof. Smith
represents mtrp than the views of the
advanced element of Canadian society.
Goldwin Smith sees the ultimata bene

but it is an oilier question to impress
the mass of voters In the provinces with
that idea.
