IT WAS a fortunnto circunistanco for
Omaha that the fulsofno local orator
was not pprmittcd to unload himself to
suiy serious extent on the defenseless
K boom is so great in the capital of
South Dakota that the city council holds
sessions seven days in the \vcek and an
extra on Sunday night to keep local leg
islation up with the times.
Tim fact that the county footed the
bill of Bill Turner's junket to Now York
with a demented pauper stronghthnns
the suspicion that the county did not
send the right party to the asylum.
THE labor organizations of the city
vigorously denounce and rouudiato the
alleged trade union ticket gotten up by
a gaug of political workingmou to fleece
candidates. Ilonest worlcingmon can
not bo led into a trap by mercenaries. '
. THIS belief that imprisonment for
debt had boon wiped from the statute
books ot all the states is a mistake. En
lightened Massachusetts claims the dis
tinction of perpetuating this barbarous
relic of colonial days , and has im
prisoned George Francis Train for fail-
injr to pay his obligations.
VAN WYCK sounds the
keynote of the irrepressible conflict
when ho urges the necessity of united
political nation on the part of the pro
ducers and working classes. The 'cor
porate monopolies are always alert and
organ ixod. The many reforms effected
by the anti-monopolists in state affairs
will coon become Dead Sea fruit unless
men enlist in a common cause and pre
sent a bold and united front.
Tun dismissal of Professor Billings
and the abandonment of the state hog
oholora infirmary did not exhaust hia
jtoak of virus. Ho is now vigorously
engaged injecting bacteria into tlfo op
ponents of his theories. In a recent
pamphlet ho describes the editors of
I "tho medical press as "erudite old fogies
anil monuments of conceited .respecta
f bility , " and bombastically declares that ,
"fearing no power this side of the grave
or beyond it , " ho proposes to slaughter
his opponents as oxpoditloualy us his
cholera cure emptied the hog pens of
Nebraska. Dr. Billings is a dangerous
man to trifle with when his syringe is
loaded with live germs.
Tin : proposed ; constitution of Now
Mexico will com pare favorably with
any of those of the new states , or , for
that matter , of the old states. As
evidence of the intelligence and good
judgment of its frnmers , it is all that
could bo dofclrod. But something more
than a wisely-constructed constitution
is noccbsary to make a state. If Jfow
Mexico's population was loss hetero
geneous than it is , if it did not contain
so largo an admixture of people who
know little of our political system and
are not in sympathy with
11 * what they do know of it ,
thorowould bo loss objection to giving
the territory statehood , But this is a
just ground of objection , and it is sup
plemented by the fact thnt her material
development is not such as to warrant
her people in assuming the responsibil
ities of htatohood. Let her constitution ,
which will keep , bo laid away until she

veloped resources sufllciont , to take her

There-are signs of reaction from the
trust movement. Whether Induced by
economic considerations , the force of
publlo opinion or tlio apprehension of
legal consequences , two of the great
trusts of the country nro contemplating
a cliango of organization. The Amor-
lean cotton seed oil trust , which ante
dates nil others except the Stand
ard , lias taUon stops to abandon
the trust plan and to become
incorporated under the laws of Now
Jersey , ThifUnonccm has a certificate
capital of about forty-two million dollars
lars , and it is composed of a number of
corporations , principally located In the
southern states. All these properties
have within n few months boon trans
ferred in order to avoid proceedings
against thorn in these states , such as
were taken in Now York against the
sugar trust. The organization is de
signed to place the oil company on a
plain legal and commercial busis ,
where its management will bo
open for tbo inspection of share
holders , and its business and methods
must bo according to the requirements
of Inws governing corporations. On
the llrst of the coming month there will
bo a meeting of cortiilcato holders to
consummate the reorganization , nftor
wlilch data it Is expected the American
cotton seed oil trust will bo n thing of
It'is reported that the sugar trust is
making preparations to pursue a similar
course. The decision of Judpo Barrott
in New York , in the proceedings tnkun
ugalnst one of the corporations of
the sugar trust , in which he
hell thnt its charter had been forfeited
and that it should go into the hands of
a receiver , has not yet boon passed
upon by the general term of the supreme
premo court , to which appeal WJM taken ,
but it is commonly expected 'that the
decision will bo sustained. Ju that case
all the corporations in the trust have
incurred the same penalty , and it would
simply bo necessary for the attorney
general to proceed against them in
order to throw all of them
into the hands of receivers
and thus destroy the trust. It is
quite probable , therefore , that in
anticipation of such an outcome the
trust managers tire preparing to reor
ganize on a legal basis. If the decision
of Judge Barrott shall bo sustained ,
several other trusts having in their or
ganization corporations chartered under
the laws of Now York , and doing business - ,
ness in that state , will bo not less vul
nerable than the sugar trust , and un
doubtedly proceedings against them
would bo promptly taken.
It thus appears probable that the coun
try is soon to see a eoneral abandonment
of the trust plan. A stock
holder in the cottonseed oil
company , referring to the proposed re
organization , said : "You can depend
upon it this move is significant. Other
trusts will follow us. They can't avoid
it ; it is a business necessity. The
American policy won't &Uind trusts.
Trusts generally have got to go. " It is
reassuring to find that the organizers of
combinations to control the produc
tion of the country , suppress competi
tion and fix the prices of commodities ,
are discovering that they can not suc
ceed against public sentiment and
a faithful administration of the
laws. The principle being once
established , as it has been assorted in
Now Yorlr , that corporations deriving
their powers and privileges from the
state cannot transfer them to irre
sponsible parties of whom the state has
no knowledge , and such combinations
as nro defined by the title trusts will
cease to exist. Thus far the decisions
of the courts rcg'arding trusts are
uniform , and if the general term of the
supreme court of Now York shall sus
tain the decision in tbo lower court it
will bo generally accepted as almost
conclusive against this form of com
bination finding legal support any whore.
There may bo combination in trade after
the trusts , but it will have legal status
and responsibility , and its business and
methods will bo subject to the control
and regulation of law.

The Washington correspondent of the
Chicago 2V/6une / has made acmivusg as
to the standing of the five pronounced
candidates for speaker of the next house
of representatives. Tlio result shows
that no ono of them has a suuport that
justifies him in counting upon success
as assured , and that there is certain to
bo a very interesting contest , with a
"dark horse" as a posbibility. There
will bo ono hundred and sixty-nine
votes in the republican caucus , making ,
eighty-live necessary to a , choice.
The probable strength of the can
didates now named at the outset , as in
dicated by present oxprcssionn of pref
erence , is given as follows : Reed , fifty-
nine ; McKlnley , fifty-four ; Cannon ,
thirty-one ; Burrows , thirteen ; Hender
son , twelve.
Is thus appears that the Maine and
Ohio candidates are very close together ,
and if they can hold their strength as
against each other one of the other can
didates may ultimately bo chosen. It
is believed that Hoed is moro likely1 to
lose than gala votes. It is doubt
ful whether ho can hold tlio
Uow York'"support now promised him ,
and' there is some doubt as to what
Pennsylvania will finally do , the pref
erences of her roprofeentatives being
now almost equally divided between
Heed and McK-inley. Tt is certain that
the Maine man can not hope for much
western support , owing to his uniform
opposition to silver. MoKlnloy's sup
port is thought to be moro reliable than
Reed's , but ho is said to bo strongly op
posed by Senator Quay , which iyay re
sult in drawing from him some
of the Pennsylvania votes now
promised him , probably in the
interest of Reed , though the Bonator is
understood to be quite friendly to Bur
rows. Cannon's hope appears to bo that
the west will finally rally to him , but it
is not certain that ho will bo able to
hold the delegation of his own state ,
while Burrows is counting somewhat
upon getting a largo part of the Reed
support in the event that it shall be
demonstrated that the Multio man can
not win. Henderson , us now appears ,
will start in at the rear , but lie may not
remain in that position.
The indications ura that when the
contest comes on it will develop moro or
less sectional feeling between the east
and west , which would glVo the former
eoino advantage owing to the fact that
it has but ono candidate. Such a situa
tion might improve the chances of Hen
derson as a compromise.
The ro-olection of Mr. Arthur as
grand chief of the Brotherhood of Locomotive -
comotivo Engineers is equivalent to an
nnnouncomon'l that this great body of
workingmen will in the future bo gov
erned as in the past. The piuno policy
will without doubt bo pursued that bus
characterized the organization during
recent years under Mr. Arthur's leader
ship fighting when there was no war ,
and maintaining a peaceful attitude
when a struggle for supremacy
was in progress. Arthur's ru6 has
been called conservative , but its con-
Borviitlsm ban been mieli as to delight
the hearts of the railroad managers
while calling for denunciation from
those members of the order who wore
battling for their rights.
Another result of the Arthur victory
will probably bo the defeat of the
scheme for federation with other or
ganizations of railway employes , n
measure which it was hoped
would greatly benefit the con
dition oi nil concerned. By
their action the engineers have
declared that they arc able to "go it
alone'and shall expect all other or
ganizations to do the same.
It is to bo regretted that a moro pro
gressive spirit did not manifest itself at
the Denver meeting , and instead of
moving along in the old lethargic man
ner , the order had chosen a chief who
would not have allowed the organiza
tion to retrograde.
Commissioner O'KuofTocan well afford
to stand the brunt of attack from an
organ of his party which is piloted by
notorious confidence men. His attitude
in opposition to paying the fraudulent
bill for publishing the delinquent tax-
list is in tlio interest of tax-payers and
will bo approved by every honest
It was n monstrous imposition upon
the people of this county to designate a
rondorless paper ns the medium for
publishing the oUleial business of a
county with a ponulution of one hun
dred ami fifty thousand. The guaranty
of two thousand circulation , which
scarcely would reach one person out of
seventy-five , was in itself a barefaced
swindle. Up to the beginning of the
present campaign the paper did not
have two hundred bona (10.e ( subscribers
in the county. And wo make
bold to as.bcrt that upon a test in the
courts the publication of the tax-list in
that sheet would bo pronounced invalid.
The law expressly provides that the tax
list shall bo published in a paper having
general circulation in tlm countv.
The plain intent of the law is that the
oflicial county paper shall have a cir
culation in every precinct of the county.
The bogus concern that figures as the
oflleial organ of Douglas county never
has had any circulation outside of
Omaha , and the two thousand copies of ,
the tax list were not circulated to sub
scribers but merely thrown around pro
miscuously in town. Does this consti
tute general publication ? Are the de
linquent tax-payers in the precincts
outside of Omaha not entitled to their
proper notice ?
The whole thing 1ms been it piece of
brazen imposture from beginning to
end , and Mr. O'Kcofl'o will not have to
apologize for opposing it.
THE Br.c , in nu uncalled for and black
guard nttacU upon thn Young Men's Chrlstiun
Association , refers to tlio lattcr'a choice of
tlio TI'orltMIcriilcl uj the paper to print the

In what respect was tbo re
buke , which Tins BKK has ad
ministered to the overbearing
local secretary of the . M. C.
A. , a blackguard attack upon the asso
ciation ? What excuse can this officious
person or anybody connected with the
management of the recent convention
give for the uncalled for discrimination
against any particular paper , and es
pecially against TIIK Bii : : , which has
done moro to promote the erection of
the Y. M. C. A. building in Omaha than
any other ngenoy. From the inception
of this structure to the present day
the columns of THE BKB were not only
at all times open to the managers of the
Y. M. C. A. for appeals to the public ,
but the editoi * contributed money'and
wrote editorial upon editorial to stimu
late the enterprise. Other Omaha
dailies which wore active in promoting
the Y. M. C. A. project were treated
in the sumo discourteous manner
and deprived- information that
should have been furnished to all alike.
That Mr. Ilitohcook is a member
of the association is immaterial.
Thousands of dollars wore suoscribed
and paid over to the Y. M. C. A. by
people who were not members. It came
with 111 grace on the part of the secre
tary to exclude any Omaha dully from
privileges that should have been open
to all.
The profound Borrow which our enter
prising contemporary oxpurioncos over
the decadence of Tliu Bun is slightly
premature. The condition of TIIK BKU
does not entitle it to any sympathy
from that quarter. Its patronage has
not boon seriously affected by the brib
ery of tralnboys or the disfavor of the
secretary of the Y. M , C. A. THIS Bun
is holding its own very comfortably.
Its condition has been un open secret.
It is still the only paper in Omaha that
keeps its patrons fully informed about
its subscription list from day to day and
week to week. It has not experienced
a land elide like that which
has borne down the World-Jferald
and reduced it Ho a mere skeleton in
point of circulation. THIS Bui ; needs
no Y. M. C. A. props to Keep it from
decadence. It has the audacity and
nerve to roBont insults even nt the risk
of incurring the displeasure of the
colorlolTHtt sold out the official organ
griniliiifj.of the Into convention of the
Y. M. OVA' .
TIIK tnftlng cost of the proposed via
duct over the Missouri Pacific tracks on
west LeaVe n worth street ought to re
move opjftfoition to a much needed Im
provement. The total outlay is ostlmatt-
muted aClwelvo thousand dollars , one-
fourth of which the county will pay ,
making tlio cost to the railroad the in-
signlllcfintBum of eight thousand del
lars. The * const ruction of the viaduct
curries viljty it n donation to the city of
fifty acros-of ground for park purposes.
This valuable consideration will mater
ially enhance the value of surrounding
property and mnko thatiicction dlsirablo
for homo builders , thus increasing the
number ot patrons of ttio railroad. Thla
increased patronage would in a few
years reimburse the company for the
outlay and mnko it a profitable invest
ment. Apart from those considerations ,
there tire others which the council
should bear in mind. Lcavonworth
street is ono ot the main thoroughfares
of the city and county. The railroad
crosses the street nt tlio foot of a steep
hill , which makes it extremely danger
ous to the people going to and from
their homes , and to the thousands visll-
iting the adjacent cemetery. The mat
ter is now in the hands of a committee
of the council. The members should
consider it in the light of a measure of
public safety and order the viaduct to
bo built.
GuV A. Buowx , whoso death at Lin
coln is announced , 1ms long been a
familiar figure in 'the highest court of
the stute. Aa clorlc of the supreme
court almost since its organizalioti , ho
endeared himself to tlio legal profes
sion ascll as to litigants as a cour
teous , painstaking ami conscientious
official. The court reports and other
legal works compiled by him arc models
of their kind. To him is largely duo
iLo credit of collecting the magnificent
law library of the state at the vnpitol.
Mr. Blown , was ono of the veteran
heroes of the war. At the age of" six

company , and by his bravery and en
thusiasm in Ibu field rose to the rank
of brevet major in throe years a rec

is inexpressibly sad that u life of such
activity and usefulness should bo
brought to a close at the meridian of

To the electors of the Third Judicial ells-
trlct : VV'o notice In the bapcrs of Friday an
nddreis to you signed by certain members of
toe Douglas county bar , and appealing to
you for support in behalf of .T. H. Claruson
upon the claim advanced that bo Is entitled
to It as u non-partisan candidate.
The appeal Is so full o"f mlastiUcmcnt of
facts , so cunningly contrived to deceive tlio
unwary , Umt wo deem It proper as members
of the bar of Dou Ias county , as parties to
the bur meeting which recommended Mr.
Clurkson , to show the hypocrisy of tbo np-
pcul of these pretended advocates of the
"non-partisan priuclplc , " and the falsity of
these pretended possessors of nil the "puri
ty , " "honor" and "integrity" that there is
iu ex isle nee.
And llrst , Int. us assure you that in sup
porting Herbert 3. Davis for Judicial honors ,
you support not only the llrst choice of the
members of the Douglas county bar in active
practice , but you support the man who , in
this campaign , represents the non-partisan
principle in the Third Judicial district. Wo at
tended the bar meeting and participated la
its action. It was not then claimed , nor do wo
beliuvo oven these gentlemen who appeal to
you would be hardy enough to contend now ,
that the recommendation of that bar meet
ing took from thu voters of this district the
right to sny who their candidate should bo.
Cortnlnly.wo never presumed to thus dic
tate to you ; we only agreed that wo would
recommend , which wa's done in that meeting
by a small majority.
It was conceded then , it is conceded now ,
that , there being upon the bench two dnuio-
wilts and but ono republican , the remiblicaes
had the right to name thu lourth under tlio
non-partisan rule , who should bo endorsed
by the democrats. This was admitted by
every man , democrat or republican , who
was hone < rly la favor of ' 'keeping the bench
clear ol the nnro of politics. "
The representatives of the republican
party met. 'In thu exercise of their rights ,
und in pursuance of tbo iion-Darlisan plan ,
they nominated H. , T. Davis , without any
wire pulling , unanimously , and without
wrniiKlu'or dispute , expecting , us they hud a
right to expect , that the non-partisan princi
ple would bo carried out , nnd that the demo
crats would duly endorse him. Ho was nn
able man ; ho was a clean man ; he was nn
honest man. There was no reason whv the
non-partisan ruin should bo violated. There
was no reason why It .should bo overturned.
Yet a reprchensiDlo attempt was made and
is now bu > ing carried on to overthrow it. Im
mediately upon the nomination of Mr. Davis ,
members of the little ring of lawyers sup
porting Mr. Ciaritson announced that they
would "spend monev to boat" Mr. Davis.
It was boldly stated that the committee to
name delegates to the democratic convention
should "be llxed" for Clarksnn. bo that Davis
should not be endorsed , and by a preconcerted
plan the same ring picked out and named as
delegates to.tho democratic convention the
same lawyers who were for Clnrkson , so that
before the nefarious scheme of political wire
pulling was dlseovcrcQ u largo number of
them wcro placed as de-legates to that con
vention. When that convention met a most
disgraceful scone occurred. The ring en
deavored to gag the convention ; epithets
were exchanged , and some of thcso members
who * are appealing to you now to keep the
Judiciary out of politics were guilty of con
duct disgraceful In the extreme.
After a long wrangle amid bitter personali
ties the packed convention refused to nomi
nate , but recommended Clarkson by 84 to IS
for Davis ; the unpacked portion of this con
vention resisting to the last this violation of
the non-partisan rule ana bad faith to the
voters of this district.
We nppealto you , voters of the Third
Judicial district , to say. upon this state of
fucts , who it is that is the non-partisan can
didate ; who it is that has dragged this mat
ter into polities ; whoso attempt it is that is
Snail a few lawyers dictate tins nomina
tion bv n packed convention , or shall the
fair division of the bench between the two
parties under Ibo non-partisan rule bo car
ried out , securing u bench free from the
dictation of nny little clique , church or clan ,
and witho Apolitical wrangle or strife *

Sir. Perry 8. Honlh Kpaaks for the
Dnkotas in Bdialt'of Washington.
Recently a spread was given in Washing
ton to promote the claims or that city as n
place of holding the world's fair. Tt was par
ticipated in .by representatives of a number
of large cities and a score of states were also
represented ut tbo banquet board. Mr. Perry
S. Heath , Wusington correspondent of Tins
HUB , had been delegated by the governors of
the two Dakotus to voice the choice of these
states. Ho did so in the folio wing lauguago :
" .For the two Dakotas , and speaking in be
half nf Governor Mcllotto , their present chief
executive and governor-elect of the state of
South Dakota , 1 will sny that when the na
tional capital presents to congress her claims
for the location of tbo world's exposition , she
will have no moro ardent , steadfast , or ef
fective friends than these I stand hero to
represent to-nlcht. When Washington lias
secured the exposition and is ongagedlnak-
ing up her exhibits , which are to electrify
the visitors from the tour quarters of the
globe and to impress them with the intelli
gence , enterprise and wealth ot the Ameri
can people , no states will contribute moro
cheerfully or substantially than the Dnkotas.
They have led all of the states aiid territories
during the past dejailo in immigration nnd
development , and they will lead in this en
terprise. When the exposition opens to the
view and the admiration of the world there
will bo found no people located at n like dls >
tance who will attend iu Greater numbers
tlimi the citizens of the Dnkotas.
"I believe the books of the secretary of
this organization shows that , in proportion
to population , Dakota has given moro sym
pathy and support to the movement for the
establishment of a world's exposition In
Washington than any stnto or territory. All
of her boards of trade hnvo resolved tenet
not only favor its institution but its location
at the national capital. The work and
wishes of the people as citizens of the terri
tory 1 have no doubt will bo faithfully ratl-
lled by their four senators und three repre
sentatives in congress.
"Wo believe that this should bo a distinct
ively national affair. This can only be done
by giving it into the hands of the federal
government or its representatives , taking it
beyond tlio paloof private interests and com
mercial Jealousies , and placing It at the seat
of national government. I fool warranted In
assuring you. gentlemen , .that m the states
of North and South Dakota you have in-
tolligynt and powerful friends for the project
in the interest of which we are assembled
licro to-night. "

signalized the first administration ot Thomas
Jefferson , from 1R01 to 1805. The story of
the many Internal and diplomatic conflicts
which marked that period of the republic's
struggle for existence Is told In simple but
eloquent words by Henry Adams. They
detail the mental , physical and economical
condition of tbo republic's Infancy , the
rancors in the legislative nnd Judicial depart

of abstruse problems nnd theories are treated
to an exhaustive volume- entitled , "Tho Key

Issued by "W. Q. Judge , Now York. The
volume traces in dialogue form tlio broad
outlines of tbcosopby or "illvlno wisdom , "
which of late has attracted considerable
attention nnd some derision. The author
declares that thcnsopy's not a religion In the
modern BCIISP , but divine knowledge or
science ; I. o. , tlio witdom of the gods. Tbo
key also unlocks the doors of mytliologv and
attempts to separate "what Is trim from

The prolific pen of Hubert Howe Bancroft
has added another to the series of histories

it is ono of the moat valuable of tlio ucries

political and religious questions which have
for thirty years riveted attention of thn coun
try to the territory. Tlio complex monnoa
question is treated exhaustively nnd impar
tially , for a history of Utah Is necessarily n

superstructure. Herbert Severance , the

lawyer who , In bis younger days , plunged
into a career of dissipation in Franco , mar
