THIS WEEK IK ( Mf/llT/l.
The present week promises to bo ono
of the memorable in the experi
ence of Omaha. There will bo tons of
thousands of visitors to the city , iind
they will find entertainment both
instructive and onjoyablo. The fair as
sociation exhibition nnd races will bo a
loading attraction , which nil will attend.
Tha exposition at the Coliseum , with its
ono hundred nnd sixty exhibitors , nnd
its numerous novel features will
bo a center of interest for every
body , nnd aa nn exhibit ot the
busindss nnd industrial interests
of Omnha will bo superior to any over
before made. The street parades by
day and by night , the displays of fire
works , nnd the other sources of ontar-
tahunont which have boon provided ,
will furnish such nbundanco and vari
ety of attractions as can not fall to
plcaso all who shall como to the city
and keep their interest alive and alert
while they remain.
To all the points of attraction there
nro the most ample moans of communi
cation. Few cities In the country are
bettor supplied than Omaha with rapid
transit , its cable and motor lines being
equipped to meet any demand that
may bo made upon them. The ordinary
nttrnctions of the city will bo supple
mented by elaborate decorations , the
mercantile houses will display their
richest goods , nnd altogether the me
tropolis of Nebraska will present for
the pleasure , the edification and tha
entertainment of the thousands of vis
itors whom it expects an extent and
variety of attractions unequalled in itfi
The opportunity will bo a most au
spicious ono for the cltiznns of Ne
braska to acquaint themselves with the
substantial progress which the metrop
olis of the state is making , and with
the evidences ot a solid and permanent
prosperity which she is able to show.
Omaha is moving steadily forward tc
the iull realization of her destiny as the
loading commercial center of the west
and is building strongly and flrmlj
at every stop of her advance. The
efforts of envious rivals to de
preciate her are of no aval !
against the conditions which make foi
her progress , and which cannot be
wholly diverted from her , Despite
disparagement , discrimination , ant
hostile influences , Omaha moves
steadily onward , strong and stable in
the secure position die has reached and
with unbounded contidonco in the fu >
lure ,
There will ho a cordial we'como ' foi
all who visit the city this week and t
hearty hospitality that will spare ne
olTort to make the visit agrees
bio. Especially will the coun
try merchants find that ovorj
provision has boon made toretiilor then
stay hero onjoyablo. The purpose ol
Omaha's business men to establish
more intimate relations with the busi
ness mon of the tributary territory
should bo largely responded to , as bO'
ing ono of mutual interest and ad
vantage. The indications are that thi
will bo done , and that the mercantile
interests of "Nebraska-will bo voryfullj
represented among the visitors who wil
this week "honor Omaha with thoii
Congressman Poclo , chairman of thi
house committee on Indian affairs , ani
author of the bill to divide the Siouj
reservation , interprets that measure ai
intending that the reservation should
bo opened to settlement by proclama
tion of the president. Ho says regard
inp the provision in the uppropriatioi
bill requiring that the agreement made
between the commission and the In
dians shall bo ratified by congress , tha
it was only intended to bo used ir
case the Sioux bill failed te
Tie ratified by the Indians
"but it was not intended ti
submit the work of the commission li
congress if the Indians ratified it. "
This is certainly to be regarded a
very good authority , but it is nevertheless
less not easy to see how the language o
the appropriation bill can bear the con
struction Congressman Peolo gives
Wo have published the section of thi
bill relating to this matter , and the Ian
guugo is as plain and explicit n
possible that the negotiations am
agreements with the Indians shall hi
submitted to the first session of tin
Fifty-first congress for ratification
This can have but one moan
ing , and obviously the opposite of tha
given it by Mr. Poolo.
It is quite possible that the insertiot
of this provision was a blunder. It certainly
tainly does antagonize the evident in
tent of the Sioux bill , and it appeal-
absurd that congress should desire ti
ratify an agreement which it had salt
should be final upon the acceptance o
the Indians in other words , that i
should provide for approving its o\vi
contract. But nevertheless this wa :
done , and it is the opinion of the score
tary of the into'rior , prosumabl ;
with the concurrence ) of tin
president , that the matter must agnii
goto congress. The contention of Till
BKK has boon bused wholly upon tint
official construction , which , in the absence
sonco of any expression by congress ate
to what was intended , is ttio highosl
authority. A further examination o
the question may change the vlow o
the president and secretary of the in
terior to accord with what has boon the
general understanding and is the general
oral desire ,
The exuberance of the Gontllos o
Salt Lake City over their recent vie
tory has by this time calmed" down am
a closer investigation would load ono ti
believe that their joy at having overthrown
thrown Mormon rule in thut city wa
somewhat premature. The recent election
tion was not for city olllcials , but fo
members of the territorial legislature
with the result that the Mormon
elected thirty-six members nnd thi
Gentiles elected olght , & gain of throi
for the latter. The increase was mudi
in the Salt Lake City districts and wa
aided by the help of throe bund roc
young Mormons who for tlio first time
joined hands with the Gentllca. Tin
defection of tbo young blood was cause i
by the inaction of the Mormon poll t leu
machine which , confident of victory
failed to take warning that iho Gonllloa
were making a vigorous campaign.
Back of tills , however , is the
restlessness of the younger generation
to cut loose from the old conservatism
element of the church which controls
the municipal destinies of Salt Lake.
Tlio young mon oi Utah hnvo caught
the fever of progress nnd nro anxious to
make Salt Lake a bustling buslnesscon-
tro. So long as the old administration
holds tlio key to the situation Salt Lake
City can never got out of its ruts , and it
is this restraint under which the
younger Mormon blood is chafing. The
rub will como in February , when the
election for city officials takes placo.
The Mormons nro fully alert to the situ
ation and will make a desperate fight to
prevent the reins of govortnont from
being wrenched from their hands. The
whip of the church will bo vigorously
applied , nnd it will bo used unsparingly
on the backs of that Mormon element
which wants to see Salt Lake City boom
and enjoy a business and industrial re
vival. It remains to bo soon , therefore ,
whether the Mormoa Influence is still
as powerful as of yore to hold its follow
ers under loash. A Gentile victory can
not bo won without the aid of the now
generation of Mormons in Salt Lake ,
and it will bo for the possession of this
vote that the municipal campaign will
wax hot.
The railroad bosses who are supply
ing the lubricator for the homo organ
of Mr. Laws at McCook nro expanding
a great deal of ammunition nt long
range. They cannot comprehend what
right anybody outside of the Second
diitrict has to talk about their candi
date for congress. They have doml-
noorod ever the people of the Repub
lican Valley so long that they cannot
tolerate even a very mild remonstrance
to their high-handed bulldozing meth
Tlfts member from the Second
district is expected to represent
the people of the whole state
at Washington. If ho is to bo the more
chattel of tlio Burlington road and the
dummy of their political henchmen , ho
can scarcely do justice to the people of
Nebraska. The wretched political par
asites who subsist on railroad nntronago
and the favors of the town-lot gang are
of course willing to sacrifice the inter
ests of the state. A yellow dog in con
gress is good enough for thorn , provid
ing that ho fills the bill for the corpo
rate monopoly that feeds them.
The republican party of the Second
distinct should assort itself and cut
loose from the brass-collared roust
abouts who have run the conventions
and dictated candidates ever since the
district was carved out. This is
an opnortuno time for a declar
ation of independence. If the
party continues in the old rut there will
be a general uprising of the rank and
file twelve months hence which will
tench the railroads and railroad bosses
a lesson they will never forgot. If they
know what is good for them they would
take hood and call elf their suporsorv-
iooablo swashbucklers.
Otm consulat Victoria"'reports ' to the
department of state that the number of
Chinese in British Columbia has ma
terially decreased within the past few
years , ana that at present there have
boon no arrivals of consequence at any
port in the province direct from China.
All told , it is estimated that there are
less than ton thousand Chinamen in
British Columbia , which is a surpris
ingly small number. While it is highly
probable that sorno of thorn smuggle
themselves into this country , there need
bo no alarm that the United States are
in danger of an invasion from that
quarter , for the present at least' .
THE pretense that Laws is not boin g
pushed for congress by the railroad
bosso ? because they could not afford to
do without him in the board of trans
portation is decidedly flimsy. That
contingency is already provided for. If
Laws goes out then Cowdroy or Oil Inspector
specter Caldwell is to takes his placo.
Neither of them are very much feared
by the railroads. Cowdroy proved his
usefulness and subserviency to the rail
roads when ho was secretary of the rail
road commission two years ugo , and
Smith Caldwell is not known to bo a
very dangerous anti-monopolist.

"Hon. N. V. Harlan , of York , will undoubt

tbo halls of congress "
A Room for Harlan.
The York Republican comments on the
congressional question ns follows : "The
death ot Laird leaves n vacancy to be filled
by some good republican. It requires a man
to 1111 Jainus Luird's ' place. The people do-
irmnd some onei of broad and liberal views ,
at the sumo time an unflinching republican.
The city of York-and York county will present -
sent as such a"rindn the Hon. N. V. Harlan ,
ex-speaker of ' .tWNcbraskn bouso of repre
sentatives. Hofif VV. T. Scoit , Judge Post
and George li.ilCranco have been favorably
mentioned for 'tho ' position , but they are not
in the Held except aa workers and well
wishers in Mr. Harlan's interest. The
chances nroi i very favorableto
tnu nomination' of Mr. Harlan. He
has warm friends'in ' every county in the dis
trict ; tbcso friends nmdo him speaker of the
house ; by bis impartiality aud fairness he
.won the resuect ot all who opposed him in
tiio speaker's c'ontust. Mr. Harlan was the
only contestant for Laird's place at tno last
election. When Laird was nominated N. V.
Harlan gave him bis personal support ; by
thh honorable- action Laird's friends were
made to think well of their only opponent
Of course nothing is certain in politics.
Some one else may be nominated , tlr. Har
lan and his friends will make a strong fight.
If Mr. in loft , ho will assist in the

The "Llfo of Lincoln" reaches in the mid
summer holiday number of The Century the
political campaign of 1801 , when ho was a
second time the nominee of his party for the
presidency. It seems that Lincoln felt that
the campaign was going against him and
made up his mind deliberately as to the
course ho should pursue , which , as stated by
the authors , was as follows :
' -Unwilling to lo.ivo this resolution to the
chances of the changed mood which might
follow in the natural exasperation of defeat ,
ho resolved to lay down for himself tlio
course of action demanded by his present
conviction of duty. He wrote on tbo 2.1d of
August tbo following memorandum :
" 'This morning , as for several days past ,
it seems exceedingly probable that this ad
ministration will not bo ro-olected. Then it
will bo ray duty to so co-operate with tlio
president-elect as to save the union between
the election and the inauguration ; as ho will
have secured his election on such ground
that ho can nol possibly save it aftmvards. '
"He then folded and pasted the sheet In
such manner that its contents could not be
read , and ns tbo cabinet came together ho
handed this paper to each member succes
sively , requesting them to write their names
.across tbo back of It. In this peculiar fash
ion ho pledged himself and the admlnlstra-
ion to accept loyally the an tlcipatod verdict
of the people against him , and to do the ut
most to save the union iu the brief remain
der of bis term ot oflico. Ho pave no Intima
tion to any member ol tbo cabinet of the na
ture of tbo paper they had signed until after
his triumphant ro-olt-ction.
"Wo copy from the MS. dairy of ono of
the prcsidont.'s secretaries under date of No
vember 11 , ISlll , the following passaxo re
lating to this incident : 'At the meeting of
the cabinet to-day the proaldent tool : out n
paper from his desk'and sold ; "Gentlemen ,
do you remember last BU minor I asked you
all to sign your names to the back of u pupor
of which I did uot show you the inside )
Tills U It. Now , Mr. Hay , BOO if you can
open this without tearing it. " Ho had pastud
it up in so singular a style that It required
BOino cutting to get it open. Ho then read
this memorandum ; given la the text
above. The president said ; "You will remember -
member that this wus written nt the time ,
six days botoro the Chicago nominating con
vention , when as yut wo had no adversary
and Hdoined to have no friends. I then sol
emnly resolved on the course of action indi
cated In this pap r , I resolved in case of
the election of General McClollun , being cer
tain that ho would be a candidate , that I
would see him and talk mutters over with
him. I would say , 'General , the election
lias demonstrated that you uro stronger ,
buvo more influence with the American
people , than I. Now let us together , you
with your inil'icnco and 1 with all the
executive power of the government ,
try to save the country. You raise us many
trooos as you possibly can for this final trial ,
and I will devote all my energies to assist
and llnish the war , ' "

hove answered you , 'Yes , yoa1 ; and the next
day when you saw him ugaln and pressed

'Yea , yes , ' uud BO on forever , and would huvo

legislature. This will bo the first observance
of the day unil the laboring mon of this city
nro maulng special arrangomonU to sea thitt
the celebration lacks notfilng to make It an
nbsoluto success.
The oxorclsos will begin at 0 o'clock In the
morning with a grand parade , which will
form on Ninth street north of O , and march
cast on O to Tenth , north to P , east to
Eleventh , south to O , east to Twelfth , south

the postonico , whcro the ofllcor of the day ,
Mr. .1. 11. Kramer , will announce the various
inoilfis of transportation to Cushman park ,
where the principal exorcises will tulco placo.
At the park the people will bo addressed
by the Hon. Frank T. Ransom , of Nebraska ,
state senator from Otoo county , and author
of the bill creating labor aay. There will
also bo addresses by the Hov. J. Oliver , Hon.
1. W. Lansing ana Hon.V. . , i , Uryau , of this
city , and Mr. Chamberlain , of the Strouis-
burg Headlight.
lu the evening there will bo dancing and
sports of various kinds. There will also ,
duriug the afternoon , bo exorcises in the city
for the entertainment of those who cannot
go to Cushman park.
The train for the park will leave the Bur
lington depot nt 1:30 : p. m. The faro will bo
20 cents for the round trip , which includes
admission to the grounds. All working girls
who nuply at the hall will bo provided with

The people will enjoy for the first time the
legal holiday on September 2 of Labor day.
Tim Lincoln central trades and labor unions
have resolved to colcbrato the occasion by a
monster plcnlo nt Cushman park. The
Lord's day , or Sabbath , Is also the laborer's
day of rest , and In that respect a prlcpless
natural boon not to bo Infringed upon , but as
the Sunauy is mor < j especially sot apart as n
recognition , of the Almighty Creator , and as
other days have been sot apart , such as
Washington's day and Independence day , It
is fitting that one day In the year should bo
also sot apart m recognition of labor. It Is
appropriate to offer a few words on the oc
casion. The institution known by our Irish
friends as Dublin castle is not at all excep
tional in Its 3stem of working. It sees
the people , united , calm , determinedsteadily
pursuing a wise course. It employs ugcnls
to go among them and to talk cheap violence ,
to urge dvuamlto and murder , keeping them
selves safe always and so divide the solid
muss. The same course exactly is pursued
by monarchies , aristocracies , landocracies ,
monopolies , corporations and bosses all the
world over. They ere more afraid of n dozen
sensible educated business men than they arc
of a thousand or ten thousand anarchists ,
the lenders of which violent propaganda arc
always paid agents of monopoly. Let the
people bo wise , calm , steady , determined ,
persevering In tils just demand and cure-
fully and severely letting all anarchists
alone , and they are bound to inako rapid pro-
The Traveling Men.
The Lincoln traveling men Intend to be
represented in the Drummers' parade at
Omaha during Merchants' week. The fol
lowing committee has been appointed to ad
vertise the parade unions the boys who come
to this city : L. W. Garoutte and C. P.
White , nt the Opolt hotel ; B. F. McNeil and
J. E. Douglas , at the Windsor ; C. M. Hands
and II. M. Meyers at the Capital.
The talk now is that Beatrice will send a
special car loaded with traveling men through
Lincoln curly on the morning of the parade ,
and the boys hero want to eet things in shape
BO that they can attach two or three cars to
this one , and all go down with flying colors.
Hastings , Kearney , Grand -Island , Norfolk.
Fremont and other towns where a number of
traveling men reside will do likewise. The
prospects are that this Drummers' parade
will DO one of the most important features of
the week , and the boys hero are very enthu
siastic over it.
Another meeting was held this afternoon
and more enthusiasm was worked up.
One thing , however , that was mentioned ,
which the boys did not like , and that was ttio
action of a few of Omaha's jobbing firms ,
who have written their men to stay out on
the road , work their territory , and not come
in during the week. While no public men
tion of this was made , there was a quiet un
derstanding tlmt these flrms lacked enter
Tony Harrington's Disappearance.
A sensational rumor is afloat to the effect
that Tony Harrington , late deputy clerk of
the district court , lias suddenly disappeared ,
leaving a number of creditors in the lurch to
the tune of something lilte $1,000. The real
facts in the case are hard to get at. About
August 1 ho notified the otllco that ho was
going to Odell to visit his brother. On the
ICth his commission as deputy clerk of the
district court was revoked , because ho had
been lu the city some days nnd had not
sbown up at the oflico. A day or two ago
some drafts of his appeared at the Capital
and German National banks , indorsed by
Chicago parties. They wont to protest , and
It was then discovered that lie owed various
sums to parties in this city. Nothing has
since bemi heard from him.
Ho wn receiving a salary of J100 n month ,
and as he had no spendthrift habits , the won
der is how ho became so deeply Involved.
His friends in this city insist that Tony is
all.right , and that he will snow up in duo
time and that none will bo a loner by him.
No young man in Lincoln had a larger circle
of friends , and the chances are that ho be
came Involved by nttomtninp to keep up his
end of the social string among a crowd who
had more money than ho.
The stitto Pair.
The stnto fair opens Friday of this week.
There has been a rush for some tune from
outside parties for the entry books. This
rush will continue with greater force until
the books are closed. Miss Krninu Glllespio ,
who ban clrnmo of those books , said that the

intendent of the Btuto hatcheries , met the

County I'olliloi.
There la very little change in tlio local
political state unless It be a determination on
tbo part of some of the local wire-pullers to
encompass the defeat of Schaberg for county
commissioner. Thus far , however , they
have been unable to find a man who would
stand as a candidate. Until recently the
leading candidate for county clerk lias been
the present deputy , W , E. Churchill , but
recent developments give the Impression
that ho will have some trouble to got his own
delegation thut of tbo birth ward owing
to a spirited contest over ttto oTflen of Ju ttco
of the pcnco. It appear * tlmt II. C. Eddy ,
who is an aspirant for the latter position ,

Second Dint net Politics.
Captain Yocum , of Hastings , who was In
the city yesterday on business , was asked
for some news on the sentiment of Adams
county people onthe question of the succes
sion in the Second congressional district.
Ho said that ho did not feel authorized to
talk on that subject ; that the people of
Adams county stood in the light of mourn
ers and did not feel that they had any candi
date or that It would bo proper for them to
attempt to champion the cause of any can
didate from the outside. The chances were
that the delegation would bo elected without
instructions nnd , further , that it might even
bo divided in Its prcfaiouccs. He was for
Laws , himself , but that was simnly his pre
ference , and his alone. He did not pretend
to represent anyone else. Mr. Bostwlektho
chairman of the central committee , is in
Boston , but was exported home about the
10th of September. Nothing would bo dona
toward calling n convention until his uoturn ,

Barnes. Mr. Barnes was sued by the com
pany for $10,000 on account of defects in * !
title to lands sold by him to the company.
In his answer ho enters n general denial and
then sets up n conn tor claim in the sum of
$15,000 damages on account of the failure of
the company to comply with the conditions
of the contract , and for the falsa nnd mali
cious statements contained in the petition.
Ho alleges that the company purchased hla

It seems that they abandoned this idea and
the perfected entry was canceled by the gov

that this was done purposely by the company

lish an article on the miners' strike , deplor
ing the outlook hero and holding Mr. Scotl
responsible for the present situation. It
says that Mr. Devlin , who owns ono-nevonth
of the capital stock of the company ,
offered to take the mines and run
them and pay the company 15 cents
a ton clear of expenses. This was re
fused by Mr. Scott , proaldent of the com
pany. The Sentinel docs not think lux ra- consistent with Mr. Scott's claim thai
bo cannot run the mines at u profit and pay
ttio rates demanded by the men. It furthua
points out that at Braid wood u settlement h
uboui to bo inado nt tfltf conU

company at LnSallo , which Is operat
ing the same vein an the Spring Val
ley company , makes a standing offer of Stiff

claim that his market Is in Chicago , and snya
during the whole of last year ho Bold coal to

The Sentinel adds that the town-alto company -
