The republicans ot Now York and
Massachusetts hold conventions
Wednesday nnd nominated candi
dates for state officers. Now York uoos
not elect a governor and Houtonnnt
governor this year , but Inssaohusotts
chooses a full state ticket. Both con
ventions nppoar to have boon enthusi
astic and confident of republican suc
cess in November. The ohnlrmnn o (
the Now York convention said that
reported disputes nnd contro
versies among republicans exist
only in the imagination of the enemy.
Thi'sBtiitomor.tot the situation is reas
suring. That there "has boon some dis
affection , however , is not to ho doubted ,
though it has been much exaggerated.
The problem presented to the national
administration by the situation it found
in Now York had many dllllcuUtos. but
there is reason to believe that most of
these liavo been overcome and that
the party is now well to
gether. It has been said that ox-Sona-
lor"Warrior Miller was disposed to sulk
and might cause the party-jomo trouble ,
but his uniform fidelity to the interests
and cause of the party in the past for
bids belief that ho will now bo found
unfaithful to it. So loyal n soldier in
the republican ranks will hardly sulk
in Ills tent oven In tills oil year. The
republican party of Now York will need
ovary man in order to win. Besides bnt-
tling against the democracy , it will have
to light the liquor interests and
the prohibitionists , which are practi
cally allied in opposition to the republi
can policy of high license. The liquor
dealers will dictate the democratic can
didates and support them , while the
prohibitionists will put forth extraor
dinary efforts to draw voters from the
In Massachusetts there has boon a
very ardent contestbotwoon the sup-
portorsof Lieutenant Governor Bracket t
nnd ox-Congressman Crape , resulting
in the choice of the former as candi
date for governor. It wns said in
advance of the convention that the nom
ination of cither of these contestants
\vould result in a more or loss serious
republican disaffection. In viosv of
the character of the struggle that has
boon waged this is not to bo regarded
as improbable , but the republicans of
Massachusetts can stand a considerable
disaffection and still succeed. When
It is considered , however , that Mr.
Crape still has political ambition it is
reasonable to oxpcot that lie will not do
anything to embarrass or endanger his
nnj'ty nt this timo. Ho will doubtless
set a proper example to his supporters
by accepting the situation and going to
work to keep the party in line and elect
This is a poor year for political pint-
forms. They are for the most part con
structed of platitudes that are "stale ,
fiat and unprofitable. " The most im
portant respect ill which the Now Yorlc
and Massachusetts platforms agree is in
sustaining the policy ot civil ser
vice reform. Certain republicans
who have taken a pronounced
position against the reform will read a
rubuka in the demand of the Now York
convention for the "purification and
elevation of tlio civil service , " and in
the declaration of the Massachusetts
platform commending the president's
civil service policy , and pledging the
support of the Massachusetts repub
licans to root out the evil of patronage.
The Now York republicans take .vn un
qualified stand for protection , while
those of Massachusetts ask for a revis
ion of the tariff o as to adopt the pro
tection which it affords to the changed
buttinesa conditions affecting Now'Eng-
land industries. There is thus given
most significant expression of the change
of sentiment among the republicans of
Now England regarding the tariff , the
effect and influence of which will not
bo confined to that section.
VIEWS OF TIFO VETEttANS.
The ncnsion olllco and its affairs still
malco u demand upon public attention.
Nor will that demand end when the
president shall have secured tv successor
to Commissioner Tanner. The now
commissioner will be expected to re
form the practices of the pension olllco
in important respects , nnd his course
will bo carefully watchoii. Further
more , congress will bo expected to give
thorough consideration to this service ,
with a view to uroviding legisla
tion that will obvinto n recur
rence of the objectionable practices
that brought about the existing situa
tion of affairs.
While the discussion'of pensions is
fresh in interest , it is well to note the
opinions of two veterans whoso views
are worthy of the highest considera
tion , both from old soldiers and others.
TliessO arc General Martin P. McMuhon
nnd General M. M. Trumbull. Both
entered the army when the war of the
rebellion opened nnd both attained dis
tinction as able and irallant soldiers.
In a recent published communication
General McMahon expressed the opin
ion tlmt'tho bontlmont in favor of uni
versal pensions is largely mnnufao-
tunul , and that It gains n factitious
strength from the silence of men who
disapprove , but do not say so because
they do not wish to bo abused. lie said
the prevailing sentiment of the Grand
Army , If it could be properly ascer
tained , would be found to be simply that
the government should comply with
the implied contract made with
the men who entered the service in
1801 by giving liberal pensions to those
who were actually disabled , and to the
widows of the dead soldiers who are in
need. Neither the government nor tlio
people , said General MoMahon , ' 'over
undertook to do more than this , and the
talk about pensioning every man , with
out reference to his physical disability
or his condition in life , is carried
to an absurd excess by many people -
plo who claim to represent the Grand
Army. " Ho held that there should be
legislation suspending pensions totlioso
who receive a sufficient income to en
able them to live independently , such
persons to remain on the roll of honor
as pensioners and thulr pensions to bo
resumed in the event that they should
become reduced in circumstances , Gen
eral McMnhon said the pension loglsla-
tion'askod for now , it enacted , will very
greatly oacood any obtluiuto thus far
made , and ho believed would exceed the
entire cost of the war.
General Trumbull discusses the sub
ject in tno October number of the Pop
ular Science Monthly , presenting an ar
ray ot statistics which ought to ho very
effective with those who arc willing to
regard the practical sldo of the pension
question. General Trumbull is oven
more pronounced than General Mc
Mahon In opposition to universal pon-
Htons , and In unmeasured terms con
demns the swooping nnd Indiscrimi
nate policy which has found numerous
champions , in nnd out ot congress.
Those honest nnd candid expressions
of old Boldiora who are entitled to the
respect nnd confidence of all old soldiers
diors , ought to hhvo great weight in
quarters where they uro most noudod to
correct wrong views regarding what is
required for a pension service that shall
bo generous to the proper beneficiaries
ot the nation and not Unjust to the whole
or nny portion of the people.
A'O DODLIN GRANITE.
THK Bun lias no dostro to meddle
with the orcction ot the city hall , and
la as anxious as anybody can bo to litivo
that building pushed to completion as
rapidly as possible. There has boon
delay enough already nnd the citizens
of Omaha are not In a mood to counto-
nnnco any controversy that will delay
the building oven for a single day.
But wo do not wanl to sco the city
hall building n source ot scandal and
jobbery. There has bcon enough of
that already. The attempt of Paul Van-
dor voort to lobby through the Doblln
stone is liable to create n greater scan
dal than the county hospital job.
Nobody contends that Doblin stone is
not in every way equal in quality to
ether granites. The color of Doblin
stone is , however , notsuitodfor the pro
posed city hall building. Its adoption
would compel .the use above it of n
light-colored stone which would detract
from the beauty of nbuilding finished In
rock-face. Whatever may bo the opin
ion of members of the building com
mittee or the council , the best archi
tects and builders nil agree that a dark
granite should by all moans bo used
for the base ot the city hall.

THE senatorial contest in North
Dakota is regarded as settled so far as
ono of the candidates , ex-Govornor
Pierce , is concerned. Ho is apparently
the unanimous choice of the republi
can a of the now state , every legislative
convention having instructed for him.
Pierce was formerly from Indiana and
is a close friend of President Harrison.
lie was appointed to the governorship
of Dakota in 1883 by President
Arthur , and became exceedingly
popular , showing ndmirablo skill
in harmonizing the disordant
political elements in the territory. Ho
is a lawyer and has had experience i n
journalism. If elected , of which there
appears to bo no doubt , ho will most
creditably represent North Dakota in
the senate. The contest fortho , ether
senatorial seat is between ex-Govornor
Ordway , of Dakota , and General Allen ,
formerly of Pennsylvania , with the
chances bolievea to bo most favorable
to the success of the latter.

Then , too , should Hochu ba knocked out in

A now rumor directly connected with nnd
affecting tuo sheriff fight wus set alloat
yesterday nnd has given increased interest to
street controversies. It Is stated , and as
coming from # oed authority , that Cohurn 1ms
not only "llxed" the board of education , in
cluding its secretary , but enlisted , under
penalty of what Inlluanca ho can bring to
bear agaliist-thcm , all the school janitors and
teachers to wort ; for him. Coburn , of course ,
denies over haying spoken to any of ttioso
people about his candidacy , and says the
story was manufactured ! > y his antagonists
solely for campaign purposes.
Mike Leo and his friends discovered sev
eral days ago , so they declare , that Piper
was dovotim : more time thun ho ought to
log-rolling for Coburn , ami they mudo com.
plaints calculated to shut him off ,
Coburn Is protesting also Against the
"locality" argument , which , ho thinks , Is
moro injurious to him thun either that or tlio
third term handle. With Holmrnd and
Groves , who are pulling' for the treasury ,
living near him , and Mlko Lee , his strongest
opponent in the other sldo of town , ho ruuog-
niios the splendid opportunity any two of
thorn huvo for forming a combination , and is
not dumo to the fact thuL tlioy uro scheming
to make it.
A. C. Troun , whoso uamo was mentioned
in that connection , sa.ys positively that
lie la not a candidate for district juiigu ,
has never authorised any person to BIIV that
ho was , nnd would not , unJer any circum
stances , ' accept the position should U ba
offered to lilui. "I'lio report as publisnej , "
continued Mr. Troup , "originated from u bit

who were discusshiu'tho various candidates. "

there is a very swift contest goliitr on In Dis

OMAHA , Sept. S3. To the Editor of TUB
Buis : On Sixteenth street , at the southwest
corner of California , the broad sidewalk has
been uuirnwcd to the dimensions of a dan
gerous mountain path. On ono aide is n deep ex
cavation , nnil en the other sldo is a mountain
of liriclc and stone , which is being used to
build u foundation in the excavation. Across
this narrow path are laid plonks , stray
bucks , etc. , besides a water pipe. The water
pipe appears to bo a llxturo placed thcyo for
the convenience of the mortar maker. It is
raised from the sidewalk some two or thrco
inch cs. In the dny time itis easy to see mis
pipe , but at night , and such a dark night ns
last night , it is undiscernlblo. Last evening
iny wife almost broke her anklo. Ilor&hoo
caught under the pipe and.she wns thrown ,
but fortunately , for all concerned , she was
not seriously hurt.
This mornintc the sidewalk is fenced in al
together , In the same manner that a cross
country road is sometimes barricaded , nnd
the pedestrian is practically told to "Go to
the next corner" or take ttio crowded road
In poor , old , stupid countries , like- England
for instance , this kind of thing is not allowed.
The contractor or builder id made to fence
nil his material In , nniiouild ; a good sidewalk
mound it , BO that people may puss along the
street without danger of being hurt. Hut in
this country , and particularly in Omaha , it
is everybody for himself and may the dovll

works should compel contractors to uuilco
proper provision for sidownlk facilities in
cases like the one hero cited. Yours truly ,

AFTER THE BATH.
Cr.ARA : "I Iiavfi had a most refreshing bath. The IVOKY
SOAV Is , without exception , the most luxurious soap for bathing ,
It lathers freely and is so easily rinsed off leaving a sense of
comfort and dfianliness such as no other soap will. "
LOUISE : "Yes , and isn't it nice to use soap that floats'like
tlie IVORY ; for if you drop it , you don't ' have to feel for it , but
pick it off the top of the water. "
A WORD OF WARNING.
There are many white soaps , cacti represented to be "just as good as Ilio Mwy'f"
they ARC NOT ( but like all counterfeits ) lack the peculiar and remarkable qualities
of the genuine. Ask for "Ivory" Soap and Insist upon getting It ,
