Eurojiu waits in n hushed expectancy o
apprnhonsion upon the results of Rus
sin's huge financial and political opora-
tious. The recent utterances of the Gor
man cmporor have not tended to remove
tliis fooling.
THE judicious reform instituted in the
army under the present administration
by which the Hfo of the priviito soldier
has boon relieved of some of its former
most obnoxious features , have had the
effect of decidedly decreasing the num
ber of desertions. Tlio American

THE chief of the government bureau
of statistics expresses the encouraging
opinion that corn will not go below 40
cents a bushel when the now crop is
gathered , and ho makes no condition as
to the size of the crop. "I am satisfied , "
saya Chief Statistician Urock , "that the
homo needs and the export trade will
not lot the price go below -10 cents. " If
this opinion shall bo verified the farmers
of NobniKka and Iowa have a near future
of greater prosperity than they have on-
joyod. for a long time.
IT la porlmps unnecessary to suggest
to parents having children attending the
public schools to see that the little ones
do not full to participate In the reception
of the president at the high school
grounds. Doubtless tlio children can bo
depended upon to claim all their privil
eges on that occasion. It is desirable
for the credit of
tlio city that every
child in the schools shall bo present , and
besides the event will bo a memorable
experience to nil who participate which
cannot fail to exert upon them a good
influence. It will make a lasting im
pression on the young minds of the
greatness of the presidential olllro which
will have its effect in making thorn loyal
and'patriotic citizens.
If THEUE is ono class of public ser
vants who moro than another deserve
epodal consideration from the govern
ment it is the railway mall service em
ployes. These men , upon whoso fidelity
and odU-ioncy the success of the postal
Borvico most largely depends , are In
constant peril while in the perform
ance of their duties , and in case
of n soriouH collision or other dis
astrous accident to a train on
which they uro engaged they have
little ohanco of escape from the cramped
nnd crowded cars in which they work.
Tliis lias been shown in two recent acci
dents , in ono of which four postal clerks
were killed outright , and in the other
Bovoral wore seriously Injured. Congress
has boon repeatedly petitioned to pro
vldofor employes of the railway mail
service who become disabled , and for the
fainlliosof these wlio lese their lives
when in the performance of duty , but all
solicitation and argument have failed to
tociiro the desired legislation. The

the attention of the next congress , and

Today the chief magistrate of the
United States will bo the guest of
Omaha. Without regard to party ivllll-
aliens the "people of this metropolis and
tons of thousands of visiting citl/.ons of
Nebraska and Iowa will glvo him hearty
and earnest welcome. With n common
ovoronco for the great olllco and respecter
or the distinguished citizen who occu
pies it , all men and all classes wyi unlto
n doing honor to Uonjainln Har
rison. The presidency of this
republic is the hlirliest ofllco on earth
because it represents the sovereign will
nnd authority of a nation of freemen.
No citizen can have a supreme title or
laim to its great honors and preroga
tives Those belong to the people to bestow -
stow upon whom they will under the
conditions imposed by the constitution.
I'Yom the foundation of the government
this exalted station , to which tlio pop
ular votco has called some of the
greatest men the world has over
known , lias .always been revered by
loyal citizens of the union , and nevermore
moro profoundly limn now. Piirtibiin
fooling nud political differences vanish
at the call to do honor to the chief
magistracy of the nation , and moved by
a single impulse the whole people unite
in the loyal and patriotic duty. This
spirit has been manifested everywhere
along the extended trip of President
Harrison , and It will characterize the
greeting and the welcome ho will re
ceive in Omaha today.
While honoring the ofllco first , the
people arc not unmindful of the respect
due its Incumbent in rot-ignition of able
and honorable service. . President Harrison
risen has given the country a wise ,
clean , practical and i-eiisorvativo ad
ministration , which 1ms contributed to
domestic tirospcrlty and increased re
spect for the nation abroad. As ho
has himt-olf said , his purpose has
been to make U a business adminis
tratlon , and unprejudiced opinion
bears testimony that ho has been sig
nally successful. Tlio financial credit
of the government has been maintained
at the highest standard , the markets
for the products of the farm and factory
have bi-oii broadened , obstructions to
our trade by European countries have
been removed , or their removal as
sured , and every right of the tuition In
its relations with other countries luss
been scrupulously and zealously guarded.
The' power and Influence of the
United States in the com'
mercial world has been greatly in
creased , and the promise of what has
been accomplished in this respect is
rich in encouragement for our industrial
workers nnd producers. No preceding
administration accomplished so much ir
so short a time for enlarging the trade
and promoting the material welfare o
the country. President Harrison has
had a distinguished career as well in the
military as in Iho civil service of the
nation , and ho has shown in his public
utterances oxcoplional ability and judg
ment. His addresses to the people on
his present journey have been rare ex
amples of the speech-making faculty ,
abounding in sound common sense
thoughtful suggestion , nnd patriotic
sentiment , expressed in language that
makes them models of choice and i
prcsslvo English.
Omaha welcomes the chief rat'gistralo
of the republic with all the earnestness
of western loyalty , patriotism and hos
pitality , and extends to President Harri
son and his companions the greetings o
a people who yield to none in their love
of the union and the Hag.
Secretary Dlalno has very correctly
said that tlio question whether the seals
in Uehrlng sea shall bo saved from extermination -
termination is one which interests all
mankind. To this country it is a ques
tion of very great importance , since the
destruction of the seal industry would
moan the loss of n largo amount of reve
nue to the government. England is
only loss interested than the United
Stales in the preservation of the indus
try , which is a source of profitable busi
ness lo a considerable number of her pee
plo. The seal catching season is close
at hand , and it is known that an un
usually largo licet of Canadian vessels
has been fitted out to poach in Bohring
sea. It is apprehended that if this pur
pose in allowed to bo carried out , with
no moro eiTort than hns boon made by
the government of Iho United Slatca in
the past to prevent it , the slaughter of
the scald will bo so great as to very
nearly destroy the industry Iho coming
season. The only effective remedy , un
less this government shall bo dis
posed to adopt moro radical meas
ures than heretofore and take the
clmni'os of a rupture with England ,
is in an agreement between the two gov
ernments for a closed season. This is
strongly urged by those who are familiar
with the present condition of things at
the sealing grounds.
A proposition to establish n closed sea
son has been under consideration ; and
so far as the public is infoimcd maybe
still , but the indications would seem to
bo that the government of the United
States Is not now disposed to agree
to it , though it was so a few
months ago. The Impression prevails - '
vails that the
proposition for n
season's suspension of seal catching
originated with the British government ,
but this appears not to bo the case. It
is stated , on the contrary , that it was
first .submitted by the government of
the United States as much as two
months ago , and that the delay in ac
cepting it was on the part of Lord
Salisbury. When the British govern
ment at last indicated its willingness to
agrco to the proposition our govern
ment was compallcd to consider
whether the assent had not
couio too Into to bo of any avail. It has
been reported since the departure of
President Harrison from Washington
that ho was still in favor of establishing
a closed season ; but if so it would appear
that ho had changed his mind or is yet
in doubt , and will wait until he has re
turned to Washington to decide the
It is n mutter of small consequence
from whom the proposition to stop for u
time the killing of the nenl first cnmo.
If such an arrangement is necessary
to prevent the practical extermina
tion of the Heal , it ought to Ixi
made , oven if the government should
mvo to make good to the company Imv-
ng the lawful right to tnko seal what
ever loss or damage it would suitor from
ho suspension. If all the trustworthy
opinions are not to bo ignored the in-
lustry is in gront danger , nnd every
oiiHonablo and practicable effort should
bo made to eave It. There will prob
ably bo definite action taken very BOOH
after the president returns to Wash-
/oir.i uiiACtiK.
Mr. Clurkson'd Dos Molncs lltyhtcr is.
o use nn Itidollciito expression , milking
a commodious ass of itself. Wo are in-
'ormcd by that gront oraelo that "chaos
low roigus in Nebraska. Tlio decision
ot the supreme court in regard to the
nollglblllty of James M Boyd to hold
Iho olllco of governor has , " wo
ire told , "caused great embarrass
ment to the people of Nebraska and
especially to the city of Omaha. Mr.
Boyd hold numerous olllcoi ? In that state ,
and every oillcial action that ho has taken
Is void if the national supreme court
upholds the decision of the Nebraska
court. As mayor of Omaha ho approved
the acts bonding that city for enormous
amounts , and signed the bonds as mayor.
The bonds nro now illegal , and endless
and costly litigation will result thereon.
As governor , ho approved and vetoed
acts of the legislature , all of which nro
now of doubtful legality. All his ap
pointments are void , and all Nebraska Is
now in confusion and doubtful as to ulti
mate results. The veto of the mn.xinium
freight rate bill is nullified by the inoli-
gibllity of Boyd , nnd the courts will
have to decide as to the status of that
and all other bills upon which Boyd
took action as governor. "
This would bo very startling news for
the people of Nebraska if It were true ,
but. the Iowa oracle has only exhibited
its lamentable ignorance and stupidity.
It is u well established rule of law that
tlio oillcial acts of any ollicor do facto are
legal , oven if it is found that ho has
been inducted into tlio oflleo illegally.
Nobody conversant with the ordinary
principles of law has over called in ques
tion Iho legality of Mr. Boyd's oillcial
acts whether as member of the legisla
ture , delegate to the consti
tutional convention , mayor of
Omaha or governor of Nebraska.
How many men have occupied scats in
congress from which they were bustedV
And who bus ever undertaken to ques
tion the legality of any bill that became
a law by their vote ? Who has over
questioned the validity of a pardon by
any governor who might bo found in
eligible for some reason ? How could
any bond once Issued and passed out of
the hands of the city be invalidated by
the fact that the mayor or city clerk
who signed them was found , years after
wards , to have been disqualified from
holding the olllcoi1
But it is scarcely worth while to dwell
upon the absurdity of the assertions
made by Mr. Clarkson's homo organ.
If that concern is to be the mainstay ol
the republican party in Iowa in the
coming campaign the party will have to

The most important problem with
which the council is confronted is the
question of holding n special' election for
the issuance of public improvement
bonds and bonds for the purchase of
grounds for parks.
Under the Australian system special
elections are oxnonsivo luxuries. Tlio
expense is estimated at about $20,000.
That , of course , includes the cost
of election booths , which will bo
needed hereafter at every elec
tion and therefore cannot bo properly
charged up ns a special election expense.
On the other hand , it is manifest that a
standstill on public works will bo a det
riment to the city and leave hundreds of
workmen out of employment during the
season when they ought to have work.
It is also a question whether it would
bo good policy to hold back with the
voting of bonds until November when
money will bo in active demand and
bonds cannot bo marketed as they
could in tlio summer if they could
bo marketed at any price. This differ
ence in the availability of funds for the
spring of 1892 may moro than offset the
expense of the special election.
Moreover it is almost"certain that any
bond proposition voted at the gonorftl
election in November will not carry by
ti two-thirds vote of the total number of
votes polled. Thousands of voters who
are Interested in the political contest
will not take the trouble to vote on the
bond question.
If then wo are bound to gq to the
trouble and expense of n special election
next winter , why not do so now nnd reap
the benefit that would accrue from
keeping up improvements that would
employ our worklngmon nnd put money
into circulation at a time when it is most
OMAHA has boon moro fortunate than
most of the cities of the country in es
caping any of the serious visitations of
the epidemic diseases which widely pre
vailed , with uncommonly fatal results ,
during the winter nnd spring. While
the mortality of nearly every ltir'o ( , city
was largely increased , that of Omaha
was about normal. The appearance of
ono or two cases of smallpox need cause
no public alarm , but It is the duty of the
authorities to use every precaution to
guard against the spread of- the loathsome -

disease. Among the mot healthful

SCIIUYI.KII , Nob. , May 11. To the Editor
of Tun Ben : It has been said , "It may bo
and doubtless is necessary to saeriflpo Justice
in a particular case in order to maintain an
inflexible legal rule , but all Just men must
regret such necessity , and avoid it when
nosslhlo to do so. "
This is not only strong but peculiar lan
guage when considering , as has also been
said , "that the pure and impartial adminis
tration of Justice is perhaps the firmest bond
to scours n cheerful submission of the people ,
und to engage their affections to govern
ment. "
When It comes to the sacrifice of Justice In
the interest of a people , to secure their af
fection to government , wo certainly are
treading upon ground sufficiently sacred to
cause true manhood to not only pause , but
tremble , lest perchance the sacrifice asked
for be made In dotianco of an inflexible rule
of law , which calls for Justice though the
heavens fall. I simply submit that the scenes
incident to the work of the electoral com
mission and its bearing upon the rights of
the people of this nation , with Samuel J.
Tilden ns the immediate personal represent
ative sacritlco and tho'sconos , incidents and
doings with tbo rights of the people of this

Immediate personal representative sacrifice ,
presents a picture In , the history of this
country nnd this state , the significance of
which it Is not to bo expected can bo ap
preciated by those whoso minds nro pregnant
with passion , prejudice and want of that
sense of Justice Involved in the promises.
It is of little concern , ordinarily , to the
mass of the ncoplo of this state who their
governor legally elcoted is ; but it Is of great
moment that the voice of the people made
known through the mode proscribed by the
law of the land in the selection of governor
bo heeded and obeyed aa the voice of
The writer hereof does not assume to bo
cither the eulogist or the apologist for Hon.
James K. Boyd , who by his action as gov
ernor , nnd his most graceful submission to
the mandate of the court , evidenced n very
high standard of manhood and exemplary
citizenship. Neither do I hesitate at thU
time to say that from all the facts 1 have boon
able to gathnr from this dlstanco from the
state capital ( for I have not been at Lincoln ,
nor seen Mr. Boyd since his nomination for
the onico of governor ) , that the writ of
ouster is the 'culmination of inci
dents that have and will cause
conservative nnd intelligent minds impreg
nated with love ol country and Justice to
seriously ponder.
And without disposition at this time to as
sume the role of censor or nrophot , further

The committee has returned ns the author

Ho Knows Nothing ( > T tlie Move to
Depose Him Politically.
Hon. John C. Watson was in the city yes
terday looking after cases in the United
States court.
In response to a question from a BBK rep
resentative , Mr. Watson stated that ho had
heard nothing of the move to remove lam
from the ofllco of chairman of the state cen
tral committee except what had appeared in
the papers.
The pretended motive for the talk , ho said ,
was Ids acceptance of the position of Judge
advocate general of militia from Governor
"I do not look upon the appointment as a
political one , " said Mr. U'ntson. " 1 have
always been interested in movements to im
prove the condition of the militia , und was
interested ii. the bill during the last session.
"Asfarns matters last winter are con
cerned , a caucus was held of the republicans
in the house and senate and f was elcctod
chairman. Every move which was made
was by direction of that body nnd after uuo
nnd careful consideration. On account of
my position as chairman of that caucus I
naturally led the forces in the tluht which
followed. It was the unanimous opinion that
wo should unlto with the democrats in the
move to seat Boyd as everyone believed that
if Boyd was unseated all the republicans
would go too. "

A couple of colored Lincoln dudes gnvo a
very pretty double transformation act in
police court yesterday morning. They were
arrested Monday on complaint of the Lin

attired in the very noisiest suits they could
find , with silk tiles and swell top coats , but
they don't look that way now. It seems that
they circulated among the colored waiters
of the capital city nn'l ' took orders for suits ,

representative of the victims came up from
Lincoln , and after a conference with the
prisoners decided to take everything they had
and lot them go. Thus it was that the
nobby suits , shining tiles , gold-headed caues
and umbrellas were turned over to the Lin
coln man , together with the few dollars that
yet remained , and the erstwhtlo dudes were
again arrayed in their old clothes , which for
tunately for thorn they bad not discarded.
Such a cruel reversion of fortune was enough
to make an angel weep , but tlio unfeeling

their faces and laughed In wicked glee as the

It convened at 7 o'clock and adjourned two

whether or not as an organization it would
send a delegate to the Industrial conference

This movement was opposed by a number of
the members who argued that the conference
is to give birth to a now political party and
the union by its constitution is
prohibited from going Into politics. The

the minority , and were compelled to nurse
their defeat.

Nearly ono hundred members of the Omaha
Art association listened last night to a vo'ry
entertaining and Intellectual lecture by Dr.
Duryea nt the Llulngor gallery. The subject
was "Art and Life. " The eloquent dlvino
spoke of the absolute necessities of life , the
things 'that must bo provided to pro
tect us from hunger and shelter in
from the elements. When these things have
boon provided thorn the soul begins to reach
out after the artistic. The speaKer illustrated
his Idea by rolerring to the evidences of thu
artistic Instinct , that we observe among the
Indians and otlior savage tribes of men.
The doslro of the human heart to e\- , M
press lUolf In artistlo diMlgns was *
followed on up to the building of beauti
ful temples , the carving of statuary
and the painting of enchanting views. Tim
moment that a human being bt'iMti to ( loco-
rut o or to create anything beautiful , that
moment lie began to pass over the line of
There was much that passed for civill/cd
taste that was really barbarism. Over deco
ration , the wearing of hugo diamonds for the
purpose of making people ataro and wonder
anil all such vulgar exhibitions were simply
the relics of barbarism.
Dr. "Duryea complimented the art club
upon the progress of the art idea In Omaha
anil said that if many eastern people who
had never boon in the west .should happen to
be dropped down Into such u meeting as that
of last night they would be likely to think
they were In Baltimore , Washington or prob
ably in lloaton.
IIo closed by saving that ho should have
been ashamed to have seen President
Harrison viewing Tin : Hij : : building airl
the New York Llfo If the city had not snrh
buildings a-s Trinity cathcdial and the First
Congregational church. Ho would not bo
proud to know that Omaha had ono of thu - \
pork pacltlng Industries in the world If It had
not at thosamo time the Linlngcr gallery
and a widespread love for und appreciation
of art and all that is Intellectual and soulful
in nature. At the close of the lecture Mr.
Wallace , who has charge of the art school
recently opened in Omaha , was introduced
and inndu a few remarks about the prospects
and designs of the school.
