The commissioners know how it is themselves.

BUFFALO BILL will bo welcomed back to Nebraska tonight by the people of Omaha , who recognize in him the best advertised citizen of tlio stato. There nro several paths to fame , and Buffalo TJill has discovered one of them. Ho personifies the chivalry of the plains. IT IS evident the news of Brigadier General Colby's preparations to take the Held in person has not reached the camp of the Messiah. As soon as the thrilling orders to the veterans of tlio Nebraska. Pir&t breaks like a cataclysm on Porcu pine Creek , it is safe to predict the whole land will precipitately Sioux for peace. IN the long nnd lurid proclamation countersigned by Prittlo , Dech &Co. , there Is ono gaunt , gasping truth n thing of substance amid a mass ol lililoous shallows nnd wiord fabrications. 3t is the pathetic appeal for more funds. In the whole range of ink-soaked jim- jivms there is nothing so painfully touching. _ TUB affairs of the Columbian exposi tion appear to bo moving forward with u little more harmony nnd celerity than before Tills is well , as 1893'is steadily coming on without regard to the differ ences of real estate boomers or rival commibslons. It is high time that all preliminaries wore settled and actual work begun. The west would never got done blushing for Chicago is there fchould bo any failure ubout the world's fair. are in honor bound to repudiate the men who dollborntelj conspired to slaughter the ropubllcat ticket lust December. Ono of the most actlvo nnd vindictive leaders of the traitorous gang was E. P. Davis. Although Davis accepted the hospitality of the republican candidate for mayoi and pledged loyalty to the ticket , ho was ono of the first to turu traitor ant openly fought at the polls the party to whom ho owed his election to the conn oil , and rejoiced over the defeat of Jlfo long , reputable republicans. Are the republicans ready to reward such scoun < 1 roily work ? A iiioui-cl'HDtrxa MANIFESTO , In Mexico , Central and South America every revolutionary movement la preceded - ceded by soul-stirring appeals from fac tional lenders and 'would-bo dictators. For the first time In its history , Nobrnska lins had a similar call to arms. Throe valiant swashbucklers Imvo issued the following furious 'and fuming pro- minclamcnto as n prelude to the contest for the governorship nnd state ofliccs : To Frlenda of the People's Cause : We rongrntulnto you upon the part you have taken In winning on Tuesday , November , the mildest people's victory over won in Nebraska. The enemy wcro taken by sur prise , nnd tlio cause of the people won nil along tlio line , In places , too , whcra wo least expected such strength. Wo believe that that victory wns not n partial oao ; that the people of Nebraska expressed as their will that John H. Powers nnd the state tlcltot of the independent party , should hold the reins of state povcrmncnl for tlio coming two years. But the people wcro not to rulo. Never la the history ot a free people was ever such n perfidious , proniedltaU.-d nnd systnmatlo attempt to deleat their will. On November 4 last , hell was geographically located. Robbery , riot and rascality held fli carnival. Fiends , bullies , thugs , and cut-throats terrorized the populace , mid decent men were drivcu nwny from the polls. At whatever cost the will of the political harlots who managed the republican and democratic machines , was to be foisted upon n righteous people. A most unholy nlllnnco between the sycophant hirelings who have yearly fought cnch other like dogs for the power to plunder the people , was consum mated , and by spcclllu contract , a plan wns agreed upon to foil the just de mands of the people. Corporate rule was to perpetuate Its power by tbo election of a democratic governor ana a re publican corps of assistants. Alcnproinlucnt In both orgnnl/atlons.wci-o parties to the combination , nnd the most hellish methods Imaginable wcro summoned to execute the behests of that damnable conspiracy. Men who had the courngo of their convic tions , who attempted to assist the people's cause nt the polls , wore mobbed , knocked down , driven away or dragged oft to Jail on some fiendish pretext. Thousands of foreign ers wcro voted oa their first papers , paid for by tbo arch fiends of the unnatural conspir acy. Thousands more were falsely regis tered , ballot boxes wcro secreted , results changed , rights of the people trampled upon , and every dovlco.known to political chicanery was brought to play. Despite these desperate resources , It looked as though tlio cause of the people would still triumph. Corruption , fraud , Intimidation nnd violence haa not suc ceeded In overthrowing the determination of the pooplo. Alarmed at this , the metropolitan sheets , irrespective of party , Jointly en deavored to smother facts and results of the election over the stato. Mandate after man date was sent out from the headquar ters of the plutocratic combine , and the ser vile tools who held the sacred trust of the people , obeyed their commands. Ballot boxes wcro stuffed , returns padded , canvassing boards packed , hundreds of votes swung around to their opposite , and every right of the people for n public canvass , a fair count , and honest government , was arbitrarily do- nicd. The result was changed. Thopcoplo were not to rule. Jumos E. Boyd with , his republican lieutenants , wcro to prolong the reign of corruption. But wo bellovo the pco- plo , la the Intensity of their wrath , Incensed by every wrong which organized capital bas been able to foist upon them , will arise in the might of offended righteousness , and do- cluro with a force and power that capital will bo compelled to acknowledge that Jus tice shall rule , that tlio will of the people shall bo freely expressed and honestly counted , and that when so counted , shall bo our law supremo. "VVe.your state committee , propose to do everything within tno bounds of honor , as your agents , to see that right and honesty shall triumph , nnd with 3 our as sistance , wo know that wo shall win. Wo are mvuko and nllvo to your interests and pledge our utmost to establish the govcrmont which your ballots commanded. To protect the rights of our people np-ainst the frauds and intimidations us mentioned above , proceedings have been commenced for a contest of the state oftlccrs. Such contest will bo most stubbornly resisted by our com mon enemy and involves a very largo expense which must bo met at once. Wo , your com mittee in charge , ask you to at once collect and send as much money as possible to the undersigned secretary. A receipt for the satno will bo given. 1'lcnso lot this appeal bo personal to each lover of justice , and act at once. C. H. PJUTJ.B , Seo'y , 1034 P Street , Lincoln , Neb. W. II. Ducn , W. F. WIUUIIT. Now it is eminently proper for any candidate who believes himself to hnvo boon corruptly deprived of an office to which he was elected to use all legal means for asserting his rights. It is right and proper for any citizen or any campaign committee to invoke the power of the legislature and the courts n gainst any party or parties that are known or believed by thorn to have wickedly and lawlessly contrived to count out or count in any candidate or candi dates. It is perfectly proper for these citizens or committees to appeal to their party followers or the people for funds to enable them to carrj * on a contest in duo form. But no man or sot of men have the right to appeal to tlfo passions and prej udices of any class of citizens or of any section b3' n distortion of facts nnd downright inventions of alleged crimes and a reign of terror that had no place except in their own fertile imaginations. It is a disgrace to Nebraska that there is no law that will punish men for send ing out such annrchistio firebrands. The wildest ravings of professional dyna miters and socialistic agitators can pro duce no greater harm than such slander ous screeds against the good name of our state and its law-nbidine citizens. They assort that "robbery and riot hold high carnival on election day , " nnd "fiends , thugs , bullies and cut-throats terrorized the populace. " What an infamous fabrication. Thorn never was a more peaceable election hold in Nebraska or any where olso. There was no robbery , there wnsnorlottherowos no'bloodshed. Nobody was terrorized nnd not a man who desired to-voto and had a right to vote was kept from voting anywhere , so far as wo hnvo lonrncd. No voter was driven away from the polls before ho voted nnd nobody who Wanted to vote the independent ticket was molested in the loast. This raving trio assorts that "ballot boxes wore stuffed , returns padded nnd thousands falsely registered. " For this assertion they have no proof whatever outside of the malignant , gang of professional prohibition ngita- tators who plotted to throw Douglas county out because her vote was known to bo almost unanimous against the pro hibition amendment. All their energy and argument wns exerted to create the mprosslon that Omiiha was organizing a raid upon the ballot box and import- tig vast hordes of non-residents to do- 'eat prohibition , when as n matter of 'act , every precaution wns taken by the authorities and citlzcnH to have a quiet ind fair election and an honest count , regardless of consequence ? . A1IHOAD. Ono of the suggestions of Secretary Rusk which should receive the prompt attention of congress and the general support of tlio farmers of the country is Iho desirability of adopting some method t > y which , as occasion requires nnd with out long 'delays , the department of agri culture shall bo enabled to send repre sentatives to foreign countrlo3 in cases where only personal visits can bo rolled on to secure much needed information. Our farmers are met by an actlvo compe tition in every market where I heir pro ducts nro offered for sale , and the com mercial side of this condition of things is well understood , but the secretary re marks that it docs not scorn to bo so clearly und orstood or so well appreci ated that there is an intellectual compe tition which is oyon more serious than the other in tlin't it is the basis of the other. There can bo no question as to the soundness of the proposition that if the attainment of the highest.results in ag riculture is sought wo must bo prepared to learn nil that is to -learned else where and then wisely adapt the information mation to the conditions of the Ameri can farmer. Obviously such information must bo acquired by men who are them selves familiar with our agricul tural conditions. Our consuls may , nnd ninny of them do , furnish most val uable information regarding agricul tural conditions nbroad , but there Is a great deal of practical and technical knowledge to bo obtained which cannot come within the scope of the observa tion of these oilielals , and to the a&cer- tnlnmont of which they could not devote their tlmo were they specially qualified for such a work. The men needed for this service , in order to give it any value , are such as have had a thorough practical experience in farming or given agriculture comprehensive scientific study , and who are also well informed us to the agricultural eondlttons of this country. Mcti of this class , having n deeper interest in their work than the mere remuneration it would bring , could unquestionably acquire a great deal of information in studying agricul tural methods abroad that would bo of tlio greatest value to the American farmer. It must not bo supposed that farming in the United' States has attained its highest possible development. Wo have yet much toJoarnof these methods by which the most advanced agriculturists of the old world obtain the maximum of production at the minimum of cost. And wo are far behind the other nations of the world in our efforts to acquire larger knowledge on tills subject , Un questionably wo are advancing in this respect , but there is hardly a European country where more careful attention Is not given to the study and investigation of agriculture than Is bestowed upon it hero. Important gatherings of men devoted - voted to agricultural science are con stantly being hold in various parts of the world at which this country is never represented. Last year at the great in ternational agricultural congress at Vienna , at which more than a score of countries were represented , the United States , the greatest of all , had no repre sentative , although especially invited by the Austro-Hungariau government to participate. Hero is a practical matter to which the farmers' alliances may properly nnd advantageously give their attention , nnd if they will support the recommendation of the secretary of agriculture there can bo no doubt of a favorable response Jroin congress , with ultimate results that cannot foil to bo beneficial to the , coun try's agricultural interests. ir-LBO.-lZ , EXKill'XlOXS. The state constitution explicitly defines - fines the classes of property exempt from taxation. Besides public property it ex empts "such other property ns may bo used exclusively for agricultural and horticultural purposes , for school , relig ious , cemetery and charitable purposes , but such exemptions shall bo defined by general law. " Tlio general law copies tlio words of the constitution , tind vests no discretionary power in state , c ounty or municipal bodies. There is no mistak ing the language of the constitution. It specifically confines exemption to classes of property "used exclusively" for the purposes mentioned. But the city council of Omaha con strues the constitution to suit the fancy of the combine , nnd without warrant ot law exempted the following property from taxation : Keystone Independent Order of Oddfel lows , north 155 feet of the south half of lot 4 , block 215. Oinaim ledge No. 2 , Independent Order ot Oddfellows , north halt of lot 8 , block S3. Masonic temple block. Young Men's Christian association block. Gorman association , lot C , block 122. Danish association , 71)4x109 ) , block 141. Omaha driving park , ! 17 acres. All this property , its value running into hundreds of thousands of dollars , was placed on the free list , notwith standing the adverse opinion of the legal adviser of the city. City Attorney Popploton declared that the council had no authority to exempt this property. It was not "used exclusively * ' for the purposes named in the organic law , therefore the council could not remove it from taxation without violating the provision of the constitution. It is a mntlor of general notoriety that the Masonic , Oddfellows , Young Men's Christian association , Germnnia nnd Danish buildings afford sources of revenue , yielding from thtvo to ten thousand dollars annually. They are not "used exclusively" for religious or charitable purposes nnd tholr total exemption from taxation is not only illegal but na injustice to the taxpayers nnd a discrimination against poorer organizations. There nro sixty organizations in the city , all of which are as much entitled to the favor of the council as the societies owning build ings. Why nro not the buildings , parts of which they occupy , exempt from tax ation and the money thuseavcd tlio own ers'applied to the rent ? Suppose each of thcso slxtjTTJrgnnij'.atlong erected a building , wo fvpt ld have sixty-five val uable blocks TM ) from taxation while the organizations waxed opulent on the Imndsomo royouuo derived from rents. It requires a wild stretch ol imagina tion to class tno Fdrlvlng park as prop erty "used exclusively" for "agricul tural and hdrlYcultural purposes" in view of the fact that it Is occupied loss than ton days .tin the year as n fair ground. It In neither owned nor con trolled by agricultural or horticultural societies and typars no closer relation to these objects than a prohibition colonel to the apostle of'truth. ' Where will this species of Illegal favoritism end ? There is practically no limit to the policy adootcd'by the council in ignoring the ulnln letter of the luw. Followed to Its logical conclu sion , nil property controlled or partially occupied by benevolent organizations must . bo placed on the frco list. Tlicro is no middle ground. It opens wide the door for tax shirking on flimsy pretexts and perverts the generosity of the state. Tho&o who urged and inaugurated these illegal exemptions placed an effective weapon in the hands of the swelling army demanding the taxation of 'nil classes of proxsrty | , regardless of the purpose for which it is used. ic.i AXi ) nw Ktu Western jwoplo hnvo several good reasons for regarding the recent gigantic railroad combine withapprehension. . Aside from the rate question , winch to a considerable degree is amenable to state legislation , there is another vital point where it will touch the problem of western development. hi all the newer slates the matter ot getting now railroads and extending these already established iss of fit-fit im portance. Nothing is more closely re lated to the growth of cities us the com plete and speedy development of sections no.v sparsely settled. Heretofore the most powerful inlliionce in this direction has been the rivalry of competing lines for profitable and promising buainess. Under the new era of absorption of great railroad interests in the hands of a few , and under the treaty ot pence agreed upon by sub stantially nil western roads , the element of competition must largely disappear. Unless the policy of the trust is more liberal than Is so far Indicated , it will bo a much more difficult matter to in duce the railroads to extend their lines than it was when the old spirit of rivalry flourished. More than half of the state ol Ne braska yet remains to bo developed by railroad construction. A line drawn from north to south , and passing through Grand Island anu' Hastings , would mark the western limit of anything like adoj quato railroad development. Beyond that line lie nearly two-thirds of the state. Except in'tho ' extreme northern portion , only tw6 lines of railway run through this vast'territory from cast to west nnd none whatever from north to south. And yet it is to this section that Nebraska must look for the larger portion tion of the growth she hopes to attain in the next ten "years' , Twice as many people as now live in the whole state could bo comfortably accommodated be yond tlio point where railroad extension has temporarily ceased. The natural competitors for this rich field are the Union Pacific , the Burling ton , the Missouri Paiific , the Atchison & Santa Fc. and , possibly , the Rock Island. But if those roada are no longer competitors what will bo the effect on * our undeveloped empire in the est ? This is ono of the several lights In which tne now railroad trust is soon to have an important relation to the future of Nebraska. IT is pleasant to bo able to record that no person who has been notified that his election will bo contested has yet said that ho feared an attempt to cheat him out of his office if the returns show ho was elected. If this spirit continues on both sides the outcome of the contest , whatever it is , will bo accepted by the people of Nebraska without a murmur. THIS success of Gordon in Georgia demonstrates that it is ono thing to elect an Alliance majority to the legislature ) and quite another thing to handle it a ? a solid muss. The Alliance man was defeated nnd the railroad man elected. All is not victory that glitters in the returns. THE bloody scalpers now surround PimTRidgo agency clamoring for their rations , but the country is safe. General Colby is marching in dress parade order with his untalllon and Buffalo Bill only four hundred miles away from the scat of war. AliltAM S. Ht'.WiTT is the latest sug gestion for the democratic senatorship from Now York.It t is likely , however , that the man who gets the plum will bo much more of n politician nnd much loss of a statesman than Abe Hewitt. - two companies of soldiers are left at Fort Omaha. What would the metropolis of Nebraska do if the red skins should decide to take nn excursion down hero ? B\i't't'non \ , thoro'a General Colby and the Omaha guards. TIIK now agricultural implement trust still insists thatit'i ' will sell its wares cheaper than formerly. If they do , the farmers will kilobit , and wo shall see a curiosity in the shape of a trust that is popular. TIIC Illinois democrats now claim that they can got alorW'without ' the throe al liance men in th'p ' jigislaturo. If that Is the case , throe more senatorial ambi tions have gene glimmering. N Fortunate Escape. TupfJkn JffjiiiMf < vii. The prohibitionists of Nebraska on election day sent telegrams ull over the state saying that those who were attempting to vote for tlio amendment in the city of Omaha were being driven away from the polls , boatoa and largo numbers killed , and thnt ono bravo pro hibitionist wns keeping count of the slain nt the risk of his own life. The people of Ne braska , however , wcro prepared for Just such news and not ono vote was made for the amendment by these lying talcgrnms. When the whole thing was simmered down after the smoke of battle cleared nwny , it was found that all the truth there was in the tola- grams was in the fact that cue prohlbit.onist Imd lxwn knocked down , but that ho was the aggressor nnd deserved the punishment ho received , having grossly insulted a man who was handing out tickets against the amend ment. Nebraska in to bo congratulated on having escaped the ordeal ot being mtod by such lying fanatics as nro well represented by the outhori of those false dispatches.

Unfortunately ail tbo available arms and ammunition have already been eent , out in re sponse to calls and none are now loft in the capital. Adjutant General Cole , however , is making arrangements to get the state militia in read- incss in case of nn outbreak und ho is busily engaged sending out notices to the state guards to inako immediate reports as to how many men are available for immediate service in case of necessity. It is therefore possible that the state militia may yet have n chance to see active service and nrovo that they are worthy of a better epithet than that of tin soldiers. M1CKET ADJUDGCU ISSANK.

The present season is a pretty tough ono on theatrical enterprises , and Hieo'a "World's Fair" company which appeared at Funko's last nipht is no exception. The company ad vertised eighty people in the cast , but there was hardly ono-fourth that number. It was no fault of Mr. Rice , however , that such was the case , but simply an example of very hard lucic. When the company shewed nt Kansas I City two weeks ago there were fifty people In the company , but the week's business brough Rico out & 100 in the hole , nnd Manager Crawford of the Warder Grand , to whom this was owing , advanced enough to get the company to St. Joseph , sending along a representative to preside over the box odlco. Ill luck followed the company , and it wns necessary to dispense with tlio services of nearly two-thirds of the company , nnd the Crawford representative came with the com pany successively to Beatrice and Lincoln.

The Woman Napoleon Hated , The lady whom the Emperor Napoleon III. hated most on earth has just died. During the brilliant days thai followed the coup d'etat Napoleon made count less efforts to live on peed terms with the old nobility. There was no limit to the bribery , cajolery , and oven threats to which ho resorted in order to induce thorn to frequent his brand now court. The Marquise do Castollano , whoso death is just announced , took the lead in bidding him degunce. She not only refused to go to court herself , but she out any of her acquaintances whom she know to meet with favor there , nnd as her salon was the most charming in Paris chance of being excluded from it was not so lightly encountered. The marquis was a grandniecoof Talleyrand , and it was through her influence that the great diplomat signed an act of retraction - traction and became reconciled to the X church of Rome. For some years she - lived in retirement , but in earlier days she was ono of tbo moat brilliant and powerful of the grandcsdamos of Paris. riillalitliropliy Doesn't Pay Nownilayn. Verily this is a.
