The political revolution which surprised
the politicians n week ueo , niul turnoJ the

The old republican party has not only lost
control , hut it has become the third In a race
of three. The now party has not only elected
more senators nijd inoro representatives tban
either of the old parties , but It has secured a
clear majority over both. It Is this astound
ing performance which exhibits the power of
the farmers' alliance in its true proportions.
Men count nothiuff a success which falls of
its object , by liowovcr slight a margin. Tlrtis
the feat of John II. Powers in coining close
to the governorship as the candidate of a new
party nt its tirst election has little
weight , though it deserves much. Uut
in the light for the legislature
the independent movement is completely
victorious , und on thnt point , the success of
the alliance stands out so luminously that no
ono can fa'l ' to appreciate it.
The alliance has n legislature that can
organize both branches without consultinc u
republican or n democrat ; that can pass any
measure its leaders counsel ; that , if there
were u vacancy at tills time , could send u
farmer to the United States senate over the
hciuls of men who have been nursing the
ambition for n lifetime. The metamorphosis
of the NcbraMui legislature Is about as com
plete as it could be.
It. I'BllbOXNRIi Of THU SRN'ATE AND HOUSE
The radical c nun go in the character of the
legislative branch of the government is not
limited to its political complexion. Noarl3'
all the wel | known politicians nnd men of
parliamentary experience were carried away
in the ildoil , nnd the tide of reform has
washed in n company of men who. however
well they may represent the sentiments of
the people , are very verdant In the arts of
legislation. The most extravagant dream of
free traders finds its complete realization in
the amount of raw material admitted free to
the Nebraska legislature.
In the upper branch there will bo six mem
bers out of thirty-three who have seen service -
vice In the uouso. These nro John Mattes of
Otoo ; W. B. Beck of Cumingand Burl ; W.
A. Poyntcr of Antelope , Boone and Oreo-
ley ; U. P. Kieper of Wayne , JMa'di-
son nnd Pierce ; nnd K. li Moore
and G.V. . Eggleston ot I ancoster. Of thcbo
six senators-elect. Beck aud Poyntcr belong
to the alliance majority and ono of them
would perhaps expect , to bo its leader.
Beck Is a brother of the late Kentucky sen
ator. Ho cornea of a family that has shown
u good quality of aggnuslvo Scptch brains
In several of its branches and woulu seem to
enter upon the legislative Donny-brook Fair
with a better claim to distinction than , any
of his colloatrues. But , taking everything
into consideration , it is evident that wo
have a ( juccriort of senate to begin with.
It Is the house , however , * that we must look
to to find the broadest expanse of inoxperl-
ence , the almost unmarml wilderness of leg
islative debutantes. In the list of its hun
dred members there are two of state reputa
tion nnd only thrco others who will not have
to Inquire their way to the Capitol from the
railway station. Church Howe and John G.
Watson are the two spared monuments of re
publicanism in the now house of reprerenta-
tives. They will have , it Is true , a score of
republican votes behind them , but they re
present in tbolr own personalities the tattered
remnants of the former republican
supremacy. They will belong this year to a
minority , and there Is no occasion for nn un
seemly Cscramblo between them for the hon
ors of the speaUership. Both are trained
parliamentarians , and both are doomed to
sit calmly nt their desks and witness the
painful struggle between an amateur speaker
and Cushlng's Manual. It is no flattery .to
say that ttiev will have lK > Uled up In their
useless cranlums moro parliamentary knowl
edge and ability than all the other ninety-
eight members possess in the aggregate. But
unless the leaders of the now dominant party
change their minds they will bo mcro spec
tators In reserved scats. It will bo tholt
privilege to obscrvo the antics of others In a
rlng'whoro they have formerly appeared as
star performers. Besides Howe nndV til-
sou , only three other re ] > resentatlvc3-cloct
hnvo been in the legislature before. They
nro Frank K. White of Cass , W. A7Gardner
of Douglas and Charles Sovcrinoof Lad-
And now the interesting question is , What
Is the character of the men who ma"ko up the
alliance majorities In the two houses ! It
would bo impossible to answer tUo question
with nny thing like detail. Nothing but act
ual experience of the coining session
will enable anybody to do that. Bui
enough Is known , of the men
who hnvo been berne 'into power on this
extraordinary movement to answer It in n
general way. The next legislature -will be
controlled by a body of men , for the most
part honest and sincere , who represent the
demand of the mass of farmers for radical reforms >
forms in the laws of the sxto. . Among them
are some men who have made as startling
declarations of political purposes as have
been hoard anywhere In tho'rccout campaign ,
They are men without experience of govern
ment and not generally well read In
the literature of the social movements ol
which they are now a part. Thoy'havo 11s-
tcned to .tho fervid appeals of orators wht
have pointed out the wrongs under whlcb
farmers nro said to suffer , bavo ubdorboc
very radical ideas as to the remedies pro
posed by agitators , and go to Lincoln firmly
determined to apply them as far as they muj
have the power. They feel a great deal la
expected of them , that they have been born
of a radical cry for reform , and that in n bat
tle between capital and monopoly on ono hand ,
nnd the farmers oa the other , they must deal
telling blows to the onomlos of the people.
Ana that is the sort of a majority that will
control both senate and houso.

If the political revolution means anything
It means that the railroads' time has comu
The portion ot the people who have
felt most-griovously the heavy hand of mil
road extortion have elected u legislature thai
is branded with their own private mark
Thcro ran bo no question of its purpose t <
cut a deep gash In the rates. It was out o :
that demand that the movement gained It :
earliest nnd most potent Impulse. That
nioro than anything else within the range estate
state politics , was the spccltlc cause and dell
nlto object of the revolt. The only doubtfu
thing In the problem Is this : Can tlio astute
tuto railroad managers corrupt the
.uro , or defeat its purpose by delay , by
/cchnlcnl embarrassments , or by Invok-
ng the nld of the supreme court !
[ f these questions bo nUBWcrca in the negn-
.ivo , then radical redaction of railroad rates
s assured. Lot us sco what wo may Oxpcct
n case the alliance statesmen meet with no
Insuperable obstacles In the legislative , Judi
cial or executive brunches of the government.
The republican slate p.tstforfn demands the
redaction of rnto.'j ' to rorrospoiid with thosofn
other strttes In tho'Mississippi rnlley. The
alliance platform insists upon their reduction
to the level of the rates In Iowa. Thorols n
wide dlfforcnra. The lown rates nro the ulght-
naro of corporations. They are from ono-
Lhlrd to ono-lmlf lower than hi Nebraska.
Uesldos , they nro spccltlc. When you
tnlk about Iowa rates you can sit down nnd
llgurovhlit it will cost to send a car of corn
from nny point to Chicago. When you tnlk
about rates "In states adjacent to the Missis
sippi" you enter upon n wldo Held of econom
ical speculation. The standard rates In Kan
sas are but llttlo lower than In Nebraska , but
: ho fanners of the former state , got the beno-
lit of a competition that helps them mater
ially. To model the rates on those of Kan
sas , Missouri or Illinois would not satisfy
the doninnd that has nrhcn in Nebraska.
The railroads would hnvo nothing to
Tear from n lltoral construction of
Lho republican platform at the
lianJs of "friendly" legislators" . Tlioy
would have something to think of , however ,
If the Iowa rates wore Introduced , or If the
plan of Attorney General Ijccso nnd his sup-
iwrtors were adopted. The latter provided
for rates II ) pur cent higher than Iowa's ,
which would make them about ( K ) per ccnt-of
the present rates. The additional 10 per cent
wa suggested to cover the difference In the
traHIo and population in the two slates , as n
measure Just both to the railroads and the
Tills Is the present aspect of the railroad
question In Nebraska. It is ono of the ques
tions which Interests every class of our busi
ness men und the vast army of producers.
It Is n question wbfl'h has been
brought to a focus after long agitation. If it
is not measurably settled nt the jioxt session
of the legislature It will bo because some
body has proved untrue to the trusts com
mitted to him.
iv. oTiinu POINTS OF Titn rnooimiMB.
Taming the railroads Is not the only Inter
esting thing on the programme of the coming
legislative circus. Tliero ai-o sovcral-othcr
subjects nearly aa rich In possibilities of dis
cord. Before everything else in Interest nnd
Importance comes the contest over the gov
ernorship. Then llioro Is the ugly question
of usury , the interesting problem of public
elevators nnd the broad subject of how to
knock out the trust * .
There is no longer any doubt that wo are
really -to see a serious attempt to place
John II. Powers In the governor's
chair , the popular plurality for lloyd
to the contrary notwithstanding. There
is every evidence that this is the serious In
tention of tno alliance leaders , not merely a
post-olectiori blurt. The grounds of the con
test are being formulated in accordance with
the law. The notices will bo served on Mr.
Boyd before twuntv days have expired. It
will bo alleged that hundreds of voters were
not properly registered , that frauds were
perpetrated in some localities and that too
many votes wcro cast in others , The ques
tion will then como up before the legislature
for llnnl settlement. It will have the power
to arbitrarily decide It by a majority of votes ,
and the alliance has an undoubted majority.
Nobody believes , however , that its strength
can be wielded as n solid mass for any propo
sition palpably dishonest. It is exacted that
much will depend on the character of ttio
charges and evidence , nnd that when the re
sult Is reached it will be such as will commend
itself to the Judgment of fair-minded men
of all parties. Everybody recognizes that ,
whatever the nature of their schemes of gov
ernment , the alliance represents as honest a
body of men as can bo found In any class of
i-itizcns , and that even if this were not so
they would recognize the folly of anything
lilto nn attempt to steal the governorship.
There nro men who honestly bellcvo that Mr.
Boyd was not elected. The purpose of the
contest Is to decide whether ho was or not.
The legislation relating to usury , public
elevators and the regulation of trusts is full
of possibilities of good to the people. All par-
tics are committed to it to a certain degree.
It will probably arouse a good deal of conten
tion , but it is reasonably certain to bo passed
in some shape. Doubtless this will bo a cold
\vinter for appropriations and un era of re
trenchment and reform In the public ex
la looking forward to the approaching ses
sion at Lincoln , it Is plainly soon that it is to
bon time of extraordinary interest nnd im
portance in the history of the state. Un
usual elements will bo nt work both within
nnd without the state houso. A part of the
pcoplo will watch eveuts with a feeling of
gravn concern , nnd another part with a loci-
ins of lively expectancy.

The Saved of the Serpents Crew Tell
How the Wreck Occurred.
COIIUX.VA , "Nov. 10. The British gunboat
Lapwing brought the Sc'rpent's survivors to
Corunna'today. The Associated press corre
spondent boarded the Lapwing nnd
hud an interview with ono of the
survivors , named Burton. Ho said
when the Serpent struck the weather
was "dirty , " but not foggy. All bauds were
below except the oDlcors and six watchmen.
Immediately after the shock all rushed to the
deck , The largo boat was lowered ,
but It was smashed , to pieces aud
the occupants perished. It then bccamo
evident that it was useless to lower the otncr
boats. An attempt to throw the cable asnoro
also failed. Meanwhile the men wcro teing
constantly .washed overboard. About an
hour after the Serpent struch the captain
gave the men leave to save themselves as
they thought best. Burton Jumped over
board , having alifo belt about his waist , as
had nil the nion onwatch. . After swimming
two or thrco hours ho landed in
an exhausted condition. lie then mot
Luzon , another survivor , and together
they walked to a coast village two miles from
the scene of the wreck whence some of the
villagers convoyed thorn to Camurlnas.
Luzon , who is still very 111 , confirmed Bur
Luzon was washed overboard half an hour
after the ship struck. Ho had no life bilt ,
but after being in the water an nour and a
half , mauagcd to reiich shore. Both Burton
and Lazou believe the Serpent devi
ated from her course owing to
the weather. They state the
moment , that Capo Villnno llight was sighted
the Serpent struck. When the Lapwing loft
the vicinity of the disaster , forty-eight lipdles
of victims nad been buried , tha majority of
whom were not drowned , but killed bv being
dashed against the rocks. Gould , the third
survivor is very 111.

boeu served on Mr. Uoyd , by reason of the
fact so the alliance man told moof it hav
ing been discovered that in ono precinct in
Douglas county they ( the alliance people )
hnvo found thut onlv seven votes were cast
and counted for Powers when , as n matter of
fact , the nlHnnco has secured the aftldavits of
liftcen Swedes to the effect that they voted
for Powers. '
The positions of the law I have cited uro
suflicient to show that the party lu the legis
lature having a majority has the matter of a
contest entirely in their own hands. They
can literally do Just us they please nnd from
their acts in joint legislative session there Is
no appeal whatever. They bolug the solo
judge * , could , in my estimation , do as they
saw fit witu reference to counting a part or
none of the returns. "
According to the revised returns , given In
Tun BKK , thoallianco will have u majority
of those on joiut bailout.
"Rirrht , hnm Int.Snft-t.oll you something that
from Dr. Alexander
Baer , late candidate for lieutenant governor
on the democratic ticket. In u certain pre
cinct in Madison oouuty , heretofore invari
ably democratic by sixty orsovcnty majority ,
neither Mr. JJoyd nor any other donlocratio
candidate received u single vote , the alliance
being-tho favorite ticket by long odds. In
this precinct reside twenty or thirty rela
tives of Dr. ' Baer all democrats and twenty
or nioro of ihein being voters. The doctor ,
learning thut these democratic relatives in
tended to vote the alliance ticket , visited
them on the Sunday proceeding election aay.
Meeting a dozen or , * nero Of them together
four of whom 'wero % uuclcs and three
brothers and learning Of their Intention ,
begged them nt least to vote for Mr. I.'oyd
and himself. They refused this and then ho
asked that they at least vote for him. This
they also refused to do , adding thut
they had taken an oatu upon
a blolo containing his mother's name , to vote
tbo straight alliance ticket without a scratch
or a paster. The result as indicated shows
that they rcapcctcd.Uieir oath.

In my mind , I believe that Boyd will bo

BKE. ] The foregoing Interview with Mr.
Slaughter was submitted to Mr. Burrows
and ho was informed that TUG BII : was willIng -

as ho read the portion concerning the nllinncc

"Whnt a great fellow that man Burrows Is ,

On finishing reading the Intsrviow he

Bttlijoot of nn Interesting Sermon by
Uov. Luther KulniH.
Hov. Luther M. Kuhtis , pastor of the
Southwestern Lutucran church , delivered an
interesting discourse yesterday morning nt
his church , taking as his subject "A Disciple's
Prayer. " The text chosen was Colosstans I ,
' . ) ! - . The speaker spoke , in substance , as
"Tho text Is the cpistlo for the day a
prayer by St. Paul on behalf of the Colosslan
Christians , aud Is n most earnest utterance.
How deeply was the apostto interested in the
welfare of the church , and how near to his
heart were his spiritual children.
"Whenever wo bear a man o < < woman pray
wo learn of their Interest In the cause for
which they pray ; so hero wo learn something
of Paul's ' deeper feeling of his Inner self It
is the hulgtth of his devotion nnd unccnslufj
prayer and the' constant wish of his heart.
The npostlo's prnjcr teaches us , first the
foundation of Christian character ; ho prayed
that they might bo lilled with the knoxvlodgo
of his will in all wisdom and spiritual under
standing. The great need of the Colossians
was knowledge or , moro definitely * knowl
edge of God's will. Ilcnoo Paul
prayoi1 that they might bo filled ivltb this
knowledge. Only think of It-lllled , uot
empty ; tilled not ovcrllowlifg but always
"How can It bo otherwise than that the
knowledge of God , Mlling our hearts , should
make a character other than
that pleasing in his sight. Thus know
ledge is "hi nil wisdom. " That Is the
theoretic knowledge of ( led preceding all
others and takes account of the many differ
ent aspects of the Christian's training. In n
sense , this may bo regarded as n warning
against being carried away by ever } ' new
issue that arises. The old landmarks may
not bo disregarded.
"Tho apostle nitds to "all wisdom" that of
spiritual understanding. This is a moro
practical knowledge of God's will ; in Epho-
slans Paul couples with wisdom prudence.
Hero It is experimental knowledge coupled
with wisdom and goes to make llrm
the saint who has tills as a posses
sion. Looking retrospectively on the
language of Paul it seems that ho
here teoches us the principle of the develop
ment of Christian knowledge. The Cluis-
tlnns grow ; tlie opposition of growth Is stag
nation growth Is lifu ; stagnation is death.
The true Christian must grow grow in grace
and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior ,
.Tusus Christ. It Is becoming more ChrisU
like , and herein Is the foundation of Chris
"Second. The perlectiou of Christian
character. The result of a knowledge of
of God's will is to issue iu conduct or action
in life. It is the character formed in the bud
unfolded into the full blown flower. The
knowledge wo h vo of God's will we nro to
practice and this is the perfection or
character the doing of that well
Paul desired that the Colosslan
walk worthy of the Lord. By und aflos
Christ's own life must the , Christian pattern
his , nnd so walk worthy of the vocation
wherein ho Is called. This , Paul says , will
bo pleasing to God. It Is placing our feet in
the footsteps of tbo Muster.
"Perfect Christian character must bo fruit
ful. Christ's cursing of the fruitless lig tree
is an object lesson for all time. This walking
worthy must therefore bo fruitful ;
there must bo the fruit , 'of " oed
works. " This Christian character must in
crease in the knowledge of God. Itlsti-.o
secret of the Christian's ' frultfulncss.
"Then comes the strengthening of that
Christian character. 'Strengthen,1 says
Paul , 'in all might according to God's
glorious power,1 wonderful the mighty
Corliss engine , tho' idea of human power a
mechanism to do work. Divine power. God's '
idea tfao malting of character , even tno llt-
tiug of the soul for heaven. It is a strength
then unto patience imd long suffering ,
abounding in Joyfulness.
"Third The source of Christian character.
Paul says giving thanks unw the Father
who hntn made us meet to bo the partakers
of the inheritance of the saints in light.
Only the Heavenly Father could give
man a character suited for such nn inhcr-
itanco. Hecall In this connection David's '
beautiful psnlm. What a picture of the
rignteous man a tree by thu rivers of water.
fruitful and rich in foliage , its life nourished
by the stream ; so is Christian character de
rived from the stream of God's lovo.
"Prom the fountain of such knowledge
only can the product of Christian character
come. Oh , how can wo itnacino sweet mid
lovable Christian character .coming from anv
other source tluui fiom Him who is the mani
festation of God's love , and God is love. "

Accrptoil Mr. Kounlze'.s Offer.
In addition to the regular services , tlie
Church of the Good Shepherd held a business
mooting yesterday relative to a site for a new
house of worship.
The Icaso of the ground upon which the
present structure stands , at Nineteenth and
Lake streets , expires in about n year.
In view of this fact , a week
ago Mr. Herman Kountzo mndo thu church
nn offer of two lots at the northeast comer of
Twenty-first and Blnney , the lots to bo given
to the church , providing , as seems to' bo
understood though not definitely known ,
that a structure costing not less than
$10,000 bo erected thereon , ns has
been the case in other instances of Mr.
KounUo's presentations of cburcu building
lots in the past.
The church found that It was financially
unable to undertake both thfi purchase of a
site and the erection of a building , and there
fore at the meeting yesterday decided to ac
cept Mr. Kountzo's offer.
It dooms that In the past Mr. Kountzo has
declined to donate any property for church
uses south of Pinkncy street. Upon tliu
Church of the Good Shepherd showing ,
however , tbat it would bo iin-
pacticablo for it to try nnd take its
congregation so far north as Pinkney , nnd in
view of the fnc , that Mrs. Kountzo , recently
deceased , was nn Episcopalian , Mr. Kountzo
announced that ho would deviate from tlia
rule iu this Instance , and made a tender of
the property described.
This site thnt has been decided upon Is
diagonal to Trinity- Methodist Episcopal
church , nnd Is said to bo well worth $11,510 ,
the two lots making a picco of ground CUx
120.Tho church finds that they have $0,000 In
In sight as a starter for the now building ,
nnd feel sure of securing the additional ? IXW , (
tbat is needed.
Early next spring is the time when It Is ex
pected that work on the new house of wor
ship will bo commenced.
