The chairman of a recent republican
convention remarked that "our oppo
nents have mtuio our campaign. " The
representatives of the democratic party
in congress have certainly done much to
hob ) the cause of the republican party
bofoic the people. In the flrst place they
have shown that In dealing with all pub
lic questions they are controlled whol
ly by partisan conMdorntiuns. National
statesmanship , with a purpose single to
the general good , bus not been in ml-
fostcd respecting any question by the
democratic majority in the house of rep
resentatives. The possible olToct upon
the chances of the party in the national
contest has been the solo consldoni''in
inlluenclng the action of democrats in
congress. The factional conflict over
the organization of the house was duo tea
a difference of opinions UB to the cour.so
to bo pursued regarding loading issues
from the point of view of party Interest
in the battle for the presidency.
Whether the tariff should bo made ttio
supreme issue with a measure for it ?
general revision and silver ignored , or
the tariff and free silver bo both kept to
the front as Issues of equal merit were
the questions which divided the demo
crats of the house under the leadership
of Mills and Crisp , ana the olTcct on the
piirly was the matter of llrst concern
with either faction. The spirit of pir- :
tisiinlsin , pure and simple , has all
through dominated the representatives
of the domoi'.racv in the present con
gress. This factional light served to
illustrate the lack of courage and sin
cerity in the purty.
In the ollort that has boon iniuio to
ndvnnco the cause of free trade and In
the Indubitable proof that has 'been
given that the democracy favors the
free and unlimited coinage of silver , the
democratic majority in the house of
representatives has furnished the re
publicans with Invaluable campaign
material. The plan of attacking the
tariff in detail was cowardly. It was in
olTcct a surrender of the position of the
party , as such loaders as Carlisle and
Mills declared , and wis : practically an
abandonment of its pledge to reform the
tarllT. It implied a want of both cour
age and capacity to deal with this ques
tion broadly and fairly , as had boon
done by the republicans in the preced
ing congress. As to silver , the demo
cratic party is fully committed to free
and unlimited coinage by the action of a
largo majority of its representatives in
congress , who would liuvo passed a
measure in the house for this purpose
but for the nearly unanimous vote of re
publicans against it. It would bo ha/ard-
ous to predict what the Chicago con
vention will do with this question. The
prospect is that it will bo a , bone of
sharp contention , but , whatever the ac
tion of that body , no reasonable man
now doubta that a largo majority of the
democrats of the country are in favor of
opening the mints of the United Stales
to the silver of the world and compell
ing the government to coin it for the
bonollt of the silver producers at the ex
pense of the people.
The democratic majority in congress
announced a policy of retrenchment ,
also with a view to political capital , but
thus far ils proposed economy does nol
as n whole commend itself to intelligent
opinion. It has been rebuked for its
parsimony by some of its own members.
The incapacity of the majority in the
present house of representatives , the
neglect of duty of many of Us members ,
and the absolute partisan spirit that has
dominated it , have not escaped the at
tention of the observant and thoughtful
voters of the country , and the record is
doing effective service for the republi

After mature consideration and full
discussion the bond proposition of the
Nebraska Central railroad has been
submitted to the people by the commis
sioners of Douglas county. The proposi
tion embodies all the conditions that
could reasonably bo exacted from the
promoters of this enterprise as safe
guards for the protection of the taxpay
ers and enforcement of the obligations
assumed by the company.
Briefly , the promoters of the Ne
braska Central agree as acondltion prece
dent that they will build a doublo-lrack
steel railway bridge across the river at
the foot of Case stroot.aml a double-track
railway from Iho west approach of the
bridge through the city of Omaha to a
connection with Iho tracks of the Union
Stockyards company in South Omaha.
They also agree to construct a , branch
line to u point on the Little Payplo
crook , and u spur northward from Four
teenth and Izard streets to Grace. It is
also a part of the agreement that at
least 100 miles of road shall bo built easter
or northeast into Iowa to a connection
with ono or moro trunk lines not now
running- into thla city.
Thifl is Iho proposition in chief. Inci
dentally as proof of good faith , and for
the protection of taxpayer i , it la
agreed also that work shall begin
within a year , and not loss than $300-
000 , exclusive of right-of-way , shall bo
expended in actual construction within
nine months after work ia commenced.
Work shall not , cease for moro than
ninety days until $2,000,000 have boon ex
pended , and the bridge and railway
must bo completed within throe years.
Unloas tlioso terms are complied with
the bonds shall not bo delivered , and all
right to them shall bo forfeited. The
Nebraska Central agrees to allow all
rallronda so desiring the use of bridge ,
tracks , depots and terminal facilities ,
and to connect their lines with the No-
braaka Central at any point within 100
miles of Otmihn , provided of cour.so that
suuli railways shall piy : for the use and
enjoyment of such rights.
Three of the judges of tbo district
court are to constitute a board of arbi
trators , to whom Bhall bo referred all
disputes as to the uaa , term * , operating
rules or regulations. The question of
what are reasonable rates is to bo re
ferred in case of disagreement to those
arbitrators , after live yours. The bonds
are not to bo delivered unless an under
taking ia tiled that the principal depot ,
general olllcos and principal machine
shopa are located ami maintained in
Omaha , the bonds to bo void in case of a
violation ol the undertaking. The com
pany agrees to accept the proposition in
case bonds mo voted within forly > Ilvo
days after the election or uoiio will be
Issued. The bonds will boar -tj per cent
The expenses of the election are to bo
berne by the railroad company , and nil
claims to the bonds voted In 18S ! ) are
surrendered as a part of the considera
tion of the now subsidy.
It is dllllcult to concolvo of a proposi
tion which could bo moro carefully
guarded in the interest of the public
that would bo acceptable at all to capi
talists looking for investment , The
rate of interest is lower than any bonds
ever voted. Only once have any boon
sold bearing lo < a than 6 pur cent inter
est. The arbitrators after llvo years
have the autho-lty to determine what
uro reasonable r.vtos for freight. The
bridge , terminal facilities and tracks
for 100 miles in any direction from
Omaha are to bo available upon fair
terms to any rallroid seeking entrance
to the city. Tlilfofthobondsnre to bodo-
llvorod when the bridge and approaches
are completed and the remainder
when nil Iho terms of the proposition
are compiled with. It Is hardly possible
f.r the company to ttko : any advantage
of the community .were it so disposed ,
and this ought to satisfy Iho incredulous
that the company is acting in good
Thoo'tyof Omaha needs additional
railways and bridge competition , The
expense of terminal facilities lias l)2on a
bar to the entrance of several Important
linos. Kor instauo ; > , the cost of on tor-
ing Omaha from the north would ba al
most us great as that of building a line
to Ynnklon. The Nebraska Central
Uea moots the demand of the hour.
With a double-track bridge it can han
dle the Inisinosi of almost any tuimbor
of lines from the oist : and give this city
relief from tbe present bridge monopo
ly. With the depot grounds it contemplates -
plates securing , truckage and other terminal -
minal accommodations are providjd for
such lines aa nviy enter the city from
any direction. The arm extending to
Iho Little i'iippio is an invitation td lines
from Iho west , southwest and northwest
to come into Omaha. Tlio lee miles run
ning to Fort Dodge , low.v , will attract
the Illinois Central , the liroat North
ern and other lines now constructed to
Sioux City and will put Omaha inlo dl-
rocl connection with the Baltimore &
Ohio and Delaware , Laokuwanna &
Western systems , giving this city direct
outlets by lake and rail to the Atlantic
coast. It will also penetrate the coal
Helds of Iowa and the lumbar regions of
the lakes. The pa.ssibilitles of this 011-
lerpriso are certainly fascinating and
with the restrictions imposed upon our
subsidy , whereby wo are to roall/.o part
of the advantages of the enterprise ba-
fore contributing any portion of the
oonds , TIIK Bun regards the proposi
tion us highly advantageous to tlio city
and county. _

On May 17 the first convention of the
league of collage republican clubs is to
bo held at Ann Arbor , Mich. This is
ono of the most notable political move
ments of this presidential year , and it is
expected to exert an important in
fluence favorable to the republican
cause. Tin ) purpose is to orguni/.o a
club in every college in the country.
There uro in the United States 153
educational institutions of recognized
standing as colleges , with an average an
nual attendance of about 00.000 studonls.
'I'ho first club formed was at the Uni
versity of Michigan , and it has a mem
bership of ! )00 , nearly half the number
of students in that institution. It is
hoped to bring into the clubs at least
half of all the college studenls in the
The Dfimary object of the league is
an educational one , designed to counter
act the teachings of many college pro
fessors of political economy whoso
views loan towaid free trade. It is per
haps a fact that a majority of these in
structors throughout the country teach
free trade theories , and the promoters
of the league of college clubs propose
that the professors shall not have the
field of instruction all lo Ihoinselvos ,
but that the students shall bo given op
portunity lo hear bolh sides ( , > ! Ihe
question Instead of having their minds
concentrated upon ono phase of it. The
wisdom and propriety of this is not to be
questioned , t > im there can bo no doubt
that the effect will bo good.
It Is proposed to establish the central
ollico or headquarters of the league in
Now York , under the direct supervision
of the republican national committee ,
and from this ollico will bo issued a nor-
los of tracts prepared by a stall of Hpo-
cial writers. The contents * of these pub
lications will be discussed at weekly
meetings of the cluba , and twice a year
what ia to bo called a "political Held
duy" will bo given. It will thus bo BOOH
that the movement is not designed es
pecially for the coming campaign , but
for n permanent , organization \vilh par
ticular reference to the discussion of
economic principles and policies. It
cannot fail , however , to exert an inllu-
enco favorable lo the republican caufiu
in the impending national contest. It
in hardly necessary lo say that the
movement has the sanction of thu lead
ing republicans of the country.
The Ural convention of the league
promises to bo an ovonl of general In-
lerest. A do/.en br more of roproaonla-
live republicans from all parts of tlio
country will address the convention , the
list of speakers announced including
Governor MclCinloy , Judge ( ireaham ,
Hon. J. Sloat Fussott of Now York and
other well known exponents of republi
garrulous gentleman from tlio
Pappio , accidental member of the llouril
of County Commissioners , voted against
the Nebraska Central proposition be
cause it contained no agreement for a
maximum bridge tariff. Ho wanted iui
excuse lor opposing Iho enterprise , and
this was as good as any other. Having
recently attended a meeting of the gov
ernment directors of the Union Pacific ,
ho was well informed upon the question
of maximum bridge tariffs.
IN KNl'MHUATINU the qualities of
Senator Hill which oxciloa ita admira
tion , Ihe Now York .Sun calls attention
to the fact that ho never lias been up-
pointed to ollico , but has always re

that ho is a hafftflghtar really lie-counts
for about all tuu ondmlrutlon that bus

TIIK closing musical entertainment for
Iho season by Iho Apollo club will bo
given ut Hoyd's now theater on Thurs
day ovo.iing , when tjio club will present
the oratorio of "Elijah. " This great
work of .Mendelssohn , a masterpiece of
its kind , bus been in rehearsal by the
Apollo club for the pasl alx monlhs , and
there is every reason to expect that HH
presentation will be worthy of the lead
ing musical organization of Omaha , mid
will justify the high place which Iho
club has attained in the regard of our
citl/ons. The production of Utla olab-
oralo and dilllcult work may properly bo
referred lo as Ihe culmination of the
olTorts of the Apollo to popularize music
in this city , and for this reason not lesa
than for the Intrinsic merits and claims
of Iho oratorio its presentation should
have a most generous reception. It
should bo quite unnecessary to say that
the Apollo club deserves the heartiest
support and encouragement , and Una
will bo an opportunity when our citizeiiH
can show their appreciation of the
efforts of thu club with gratification and
profit to themselves.
TIIK antl-nnnoxationists In Canada
nro gleeful because Mr. Mucdonuld ,
who was a candidate for the Ontario
legislature in the recent election , re
ceived u very small vote. Mr. Macdoti-

platform of hia own , but was not sup
ported by anything like an organized
movement to make his candidacy a test
of the blroiigth of the annexation sen
timent , which is undoubtedly much
stronger than the result of the election
would seem to indicate. The annexa

Alter so much tooting of horns among the
small fry about tno party repudiation } ! Mr.
Hojewnter , wo notice the Kearney conven
tion was very emphatic In recommending
him for membership on thu national commit
tee. The republican party Is not iii a posi
tion lo ignore Mr. Kosewator , and wo ihMiis
he muUes u mistake when ho consents to go
into u local contort witn the ward heelers nt
Omplia. A man of Mr. Koiowater's position
atul inlluoncc is such l.hat ho can compl the
politicians to run after him , Instead of en
tering into a contest with soma nrinco of the
slum * for the privilege of being n delegate
to the na'ional convention.V'n do not be-
llevo in Mr. llosowator's politics , but wo do
beliuvs that ho and his naper are worth moro
to the republican party than any 100 loaders
in that party. That party conld Hnd 100
better leaders than it now has In n very
short time , but it takes a lifetime to build
up mi OMVIIA BIK. : and only ouo man out of

There is now but ono possibility of n
breach in tbo republican ranks. This Is that
the dolepatos-at-largo , which represent to
strongly the UieharJs nnd tuiti-Kosowator
faction , should not follow the instructions of
Iho convention nt Minnoapolls. They were
recognized as they should be , but in the
understanding that Mr. Hoaowntor should bo
supported us national committceman from
Nebraska. Should thcso men , as Richards
and Webster and Coob , disregard the In-
atiiictior.s of their constituent ? , they will oo
marked plainly as traitors and undeserving
further supparl from their p.irty. There is
only one right course ) for them to pursue.
Tills has been laid plainly Infnro thorn.
This Is indeed no time for individual ven
geance. That the party recognizes Mils , and
has emphatically declared its opposition to
all sucii taclici Is rlulr. enough to nil. Lot
