There lias Iwen some discussion re

tant a power ns Ihis legislation involve * ,
ind an amendment \vjis \ offered merely
directing-the prc.sidi'iit to eonimunieato
.ho facia to con rass , but it was defeated.
Speaking on this point a few days ago ,
Senator Halo said the president had
joonjflven J > o rer quite ns great in other
mat torn , nnd. It win pretty generally
igrecd among republican senators thai
[ here was nothing to bo apprehended
[ rom giving this authority to the
executive. It is obviously , how
ever , u delegation of a very great
and important power , and it is not tin-
likely that the homo will insist upon a
nodillcation of the amondmunt In this
[ virticular. There Is very little doubt ,
however , that this measure for cnooiir-
tiging reciprocal trndo will bo incorpor
ated In the larilT bill , nnd IhuHim im-
modialo ctlort bo made to learn how far
the countries from which wo buy sugars ,
molasses , coitco , tea and ixides are dis
posed to io in ( , 'K'inrr more favorable op
portunities in tlieir markets to our agri
cultural and other products.
The belief has become very general
ttni.t the cxperimeiit is well -\vorth trying
nnd that the is
present so conspicuous t\
tlmo for trying it tint it would ho a
grave mistake not to go forward. There
are reasonable grounds for doubting tliat
It will accomplish what itsmorosanguine
advocates expect , but that it will have
fnuio good results is unquestionable.
Even the assurances that have been re
ceived from Brazil warrant tills con
clusion. It is a policy that has grown
very rapidly In popular approval , par
ticularly with the agricultural interest ,
and ( hero Is no interest which can make
any just complaint against it.
The first state election in Wyoming
lakes place tomorrow. Much interest is
manifested in tbo result , as it will de
termine -with which party a majority of
the people will cast their political for
tunes. IJoth parties have placed in
nomiiritlon mm of '
commanding' promi
nence and ability. Governor Francis
Warren heads the republican licl < ot and
G. "W. Baxter the democratic. There
are 110 factions or discouraging elements
In either party , and the result will there
fore bo an accurate test of party strength.
Although the democrats have made a
lively canvass of the state , the leaders
have llttlo hope of success. Republi
canism has gained steadily in the terri
tory since 1832. In 18SI tlio republican
majority for delegate to congress was
sixteen hundred and thirty-nine , in a
total vote of twelve thousand eight
hundred and cloven. Two years later
the democrats ht ; the election go by default -
fault , and in 1SSS the republicans in
creased their majority to twonty-oight
hundred and ninety-four , out'of a total
of eighteen thousand votes cast.
During all these years republican
success was achieved on the strictly
local issues. National questions did
not enter the campaigns. With the
prestige of statehood accomplished
through republican efforts , coupled
with the business-like management of
territorial affairs , gives the rooubHouns
superior claims to the su 11 rages of the
people. The sturdy pioneers of the tor-
ritoryandthono loss energetic though
later ro&idonts belong to the pushing , de
veloping class. They nro familiar with
the obstructive efforts of the national
democratic party to strangle statehood ,
nnd they know to their cost how their
material interests \voro nlTectod by the
mismanagement of Cleveland's ' imported
rulers. The republican party gave them
homo rule in territorial days and supple
mented it with the grander privilege el
statehood. The country expects the
people of Wyoming to show tliolr tip-
prcclatlonut the polls , and it is safe to
predict that the now state will ally

Increased plurality , For eight months
Mr. Hoed has b3on the target for more
vindictive abuse and relentless vituper
ation than was over uhowored
upon any other public man in
our history. Ho has received ,
as ho himself said iu Ills
speech at Portland lost \voolc , much In

It would have bo-vi impossible without
lliu ( 'oiicurrunc'j of tlio party in control
of the liousa , and while it nny

CIIPO was greater than that of any other

responsibility for it is shared by every
republican of the house ot representa

results every citizen may decide for him
self from n fair and just consideration of
tlio record.

publicans of tlio house Is recognized by
Hie p'irty everywhere , and his re-elec

who bollevo in the
bravo and manly tis-
wjrtion of the principles of the party.
So fur as his constituents are concerned ,

Tun secretary of the treasury 1ms
been somewhat slow in responding to
information regarding Canadian railway
compsUtiou asked for by u resolution of
the senate some ttmo ago. and the fact
that ho is just on taring upon an investi
gation of the most Important matter In
volved in the inquiry makes it wobablo
that there will bo no legislation on the
subject sit the present session. Mean
time it appears that the Canadian
companies have not boon In
different to the situation nnd
are prepared to evade or avoid
the consequences of a decision against
them relative to the use of the consular
seal system. Tlieir representatives at
Washington say that if the system of
sealing merchandise at Canadian points
for American del ivory is stoppjd the
goods wLll bo brought to the American
border and the/o saalod. This would
doubtless unable them to hold the trnlllc
FO far a any present authority exists to
interfere with them , so that tlio matter
would have to become one of special
legislation. It Is not likely that the
subject will receive any more attention
at the nt session of congress than
has already boon given it.
IN VIEW of the crowded condition of
the high school and the fact that pupils
wore turned aw.iy for want of accommo
dation , it is clour that temporary ex
pedients must bo resorted to. Uids for
the proposed brick school show that the
structure will cost at least twelve
thousand five hundred dollars. The
vital question ifl , shall children bo de
prived of educational facilities merely
to satisfy the clamor against "despoiling
the high school grounds:1' ' The
board is not in
condition to build an
annex to the high school , nor ean it
purchase of a now site in the neighbor
hood and build without the authority of
the voters. ' Nor is this the time to sub
mit n proposition to the people. The
board Is liedtrcd in and cannot move in
the manner best calculated to subserve
the interests of the schools. The best
and most economical course to pursue is
structure with the understanding that it
will bo demolished within three years.
Hy that time other accommodations will

A lively racket took place In Hood's saloon

Temperate Temperance.
The Lincoln Call is not law or gospel ,
neither Is It ri ht when It say.1 ! prohibition is
right , Neither the Cull nor any other paper
should dlctnto the food taken into the body
of any man , much less presume to decide
upon the kind of beverage used at the table
of any citizen. If to prohibit the use of beer ,
wine , cider , ale , porter , gin , brandy , wliisky
or any other article Is right , then it Is right
to prohibit the tiso of coffee , ten , tobacco nrul
numerous other foods which shorten life
wliun used to excess. Any 0110 who relies
upon the license law as the only means of re
striction is not sincere in his effort to restrict
the iihuso of Intoxicating beverages. High
license is undoubtedly a great factor In the
matter of restriction , but without gilt-edged
security for the proper obscrvancoof temper-
unco legislated in the shape of bonds ,
it la powerless to restrict. The
Nebraska law provides that any person
selling drinks to minors , forfeits § i > for the
first offeine. It also provides for a line of
? V ) for selling to a drunkard , Insuno pctvton
or an Indian , and 8100 is the line imposed for
selling liquors on Sundays orclcction days.
The law also provides that when any person
shall become a county or city charge by rea
son of Iiitoinpor.uice , a suit may bo instituted
on the bond of any person licensed who may
have boon la the habit of giving intoxicating
liquor to the person so becoming n public
charge. The law also provides for windows
unobstructed and against treating. In fact ,
the law covers every point nnd gives the per
son objecting to the use of liquors every op
portunity and advantage over the saloon
Experience has demonstrated that our
present legislation is wise and for the best , a ?
results in prohibition states testify that there
Is moro drunkenness under the prohibitory
law than \mdortbo present Nebraska law ;
but tlio main objection to the prohibitory law
is the fact , that the innocent nro punished
while thn guilty are allowed to continue in
debauchery. Show us a prohibition town
and wo will show you liquor used In excess
hy the same class who make drunkards In a
town where restriction prevails. Though
many arguments may bo advnased against
the present Nebraska liquor law , much more
can be truthfully said against prohibition ,
Upon ono policy all good people can ngrce ,
and tliat Is the organizing of publiu senti
ment against drunkenness , Too much
energy has been wasted In abusing the
man who soils that on which men may get
drunk , while there has boon two much in
dulgence shown for the man who gets drunk.
The strongest agency la preventing men from
becoming drunkards during the last genera
tion has not been the enactment of laws to
debar thorn from buying drink , but the grow
ing realization that they cannot afford to be
come drunk that it now moans for the min
ister the forfeiture of his pulpit , for the law
yer the loss of his clients , for the physician
the dwindling of his practice , for the con
gressman the risk of his scat la the capital ,
for the business man the shaking of public
confidence , for the laboring man the danger
of "losing his job. " The chief aim of all good
citizens in this mutter should bo to make
drunkenness constantly more and more odious
and thus less and less common ; and this
must always and every where bo the work of
education and training In far greater measure
than tbat of law.
BIcctiiiRof the Central Tralllo Asso

CniCAoo , Sept. 9. Special Telegram to
Tin : UKK. ] Today's meeting of the Central
Tranio association was the usual Informal
first day's session , in which tlio various sub
jects are apportioned to the proper commit
tees. Chairman Blauchard , however , had
prepared a complete history of the now billet
lading , which he read. .All thu facts have
been published , but Chairman lilandiurdcon-
eluded with the onmion that tomorrow
woum DO mo criienu ( my unci mat in
the afternoon ho would submit a report which
would embody the opinions of each of the
eastern roads.
The opinion left on the minds of tbo mem
bers was Unit Chairman I31anch.ini would
tomorrow two iimenil either the discontinu
ance of the use of tlio new bill of lading or
tliat nu early conference witli the shippers
bo held , for the purpose of agreeing on an
amended uniform bill.
Suid ono of the members nftor the meet
ing : " \Vo , who are using the now bill of
lading , are feeling keenly the affect of tlio
shippers' boycott. To ( jet down to br.iss
lackswe can't stand the discrimination much
longer nor will wa The Grand
Trunk , Wabash and Uig 1'our
nro doing an unprecedented business
and the rest of us nrooiilvircttlnir the through
im.Hiness wnicn cunnoo i > u turnuu iruui UH.
The Lake Shore road has notified Chairman
Illnnchnril Hint It will discoutlnuo tno usoof
the new bill of lading unless all lines use It ,
and half a dozen others of us will follow the
example of tbo Lake Shore tonight. "
During the day the Irand ! Trunk gave its
ultimatum to Chairman lilanuhard on the bill
of lading matter , It was that it would use
the new form if every other line castbound
from St. Louis , Pooriti und Chicago would
use It. The Uouk Island being n road cast
bound from 1'corin , President Cable was
soon. Ho said : " \Vowill have nothing to
do with this now billet lading unless it is
amended In a manner satisfactory to tlio
shipper. * . Wo nil want a uniform bill nnd
when ono Is drafted satisfactory to nil con
cerned , It will undoubtedly bo put into effect
on all roads In the country. " In thu minds
of the Central Traffic people , this seemed to
settle the matter. It Is expected no further
effort to bring the Grand Trunk ,
and liig Four into line will bo madu and that
the majority of lines now using the now bill
u'ill itl f > nritniln iniTll fr. ( Mil tin A.iHn.

In today's meeting1 of the Western Freight

Culcnso of 19 cents on wheat nnd 17 cents on
corn and om the Missouri to St. Louis of 4
cents on wicat audit ! cents on corn , Tlio
motion to reduce the rates as above was
voted down and the two roads guvo notice
under tbo rules that they would innlto the re
ductions on September 1'J. U is expected
that other roads will tuku similar action to
morrow ,

Western Passenger association said today In
regard to tomorrow's meeting of the go no nil
mana''eM of the association : "I ualloil the

vAll thcso bills involve an npproprJnUnti ,
and hence encounter more or less opposition
from tlio men in congress who think Unit
onoiign money has been spent during this
session for one ilscnl year. They are in a
good position , though , for lavorublo action iu
the ii''xt session. The following , however ,
calls for no appropriation nnd is' not , there

In this statement no mention has been mmlo
of numerous private bills , for the reason tliat
they have no general interest , no mutter how .
important they are to the individual rlir
ant. It can bo seen , too , that the people
Nebraska are not giving congress ns in
work to do ns formerly , when the count i newer nnd tlio interests requiring

Nebraska has done very well at this sosslmi ,
even though no measures are advanced to
