One hundred and sixteen yo.ira ago
today the fathers of the American re
public declared their Independence of
Great Britain and proolalnuJ a solf-
evident truths that all 111211 are oro.UoJ
equal an.l are endowed by their G.'cator
with the right to life , llborty and the
pursuit of happiness. July 4 , 1770 , there
was laid Hie foundation of a now repub
lic , destined to become the greatest na
tion of the north and to exert an inllu-
once upon the world in behalf of the
rights of all peoples Infinitely greater
than had ever been exorcised by any
other nation , ancient or modern.
This consummation w.is not the result
of an impulse. It was the outcomn of a
purpose deliberately formed and born of
long years of tyranny , opn'osslon and
wrong. Patiently the colonists had
berne the abuses heaped upon thorn by
Britisli kings and parliaments , appealing
again and again for a redress of griev
ances , only to have their toquosts
treated with contempt and the wrongs
from which they suffered increased.
They were disposnd to bo loyal subject ? ,
but thla sentiment found no appreciation
from the rulers of England and gradu
ally it was destroyed by the force of
accumulating oppressions. Then ensued
the mightiest undertaking ever essayed
and accomplished by men The courage ,
the patriotism and the sublime devotion
to popular rights which distinguished
the nction of the men who challenged
England's power and for seven years
battled against it until their purpose
was attained are without parallel in
It is unnecessary to point out the
magnillcont results of that action. These
are before us , the wonder nn.l admira
tion of the world , appealing to the pride
and loyalty and patriotism of every
American citizen , "und giving assurance
that the republic , if the admonition and
counsel of the men who founded it bo
not disregarded , will eventually become
the foremost nation of the earth in finan
cial and commercial power , as it is
already in its influence upon govern
mental policies. No American who will
rollect upon.wlmt has resulted from the
action of the men of 1770 can full to fool
that the people who enjoy the fruits of
their courage and sacrillco cannot nay
too much homage to their memories ,
and that the proper observance of the
anniversary of the Declaration of Inde
pendence is ono of the highest of patrio
tic duties. Omaha will celebrate the
day as she has never done before. The
arrangements assure the finest parade
ever soon here , or perhaps anywhere
west of the Mississippi , and the night
will bo illumined by a brilliant display of
fireworks. The interest and enthusiasm
of the occasion will certainly make it
memorable in the city's history and will
give Nobrii'jkuns another rotibou to. bo
proud of their chlof city.
IIAItMONl" IX A'KW YORK.
Mr. Cleveland ought to pray to bo
delivered from his friends. The Now
York Times , which is his greatest organ ,
demands that Lieutenant Governor
Shcehan shall bo bounced from the
democratic party and that Chairman
Murphy of the New York democratic
state committee shall suitor the suuio
fate. The 'limes s-iys that they are both
"political blackguards. " Governor
Flower , who belongs to the same Tam
many bet , is not summarily ousted from
the party by the paper quoted because ,
to use its own language , "It doesn't
matter about Flower ; ho doesn't know
any bettor. "
It is pleasant to observe these signs of
harmony and brothorlv love in the dem
ocratic party. Tiio Cleveland men in
Now York have claimed all along that
there was nothing but solid unity in
their state and that every democrat
there was enthusiastic for the ticket.
But "Billy'1 Sheohnn and Edward Mur
phy , who have u largo inllucnco in the
Empire state , are now mentioned an
suitable men for expulsion , and the Now
York ! /I' I'IM , which is certainly the most
devoted if not the most powerful advo
cate of Mr. Cleveland , is responsible for
the suggestion that these strong chief
tains of Tammany bo road out of the
democratic party. As to the case of
Governor Flower , who is excused on the
ground that ho doosn't know any bettor ,
perhaps that is a matter requiring in
vestigation. The governor should bo
examined with the view of ascertaining
whether ho really doijs not know any
bettor than to bo unfriendly to the ox-
It Is evident that the democratic har
mony in Now York is open to suspicion.
The latest reports bay tlrvt Prince Bis
marck has put hinibclf completely out
of imperial favor , and that ho has como
to bo regarded as a firebrand menacing
the pencil of Europe. The suggestion
that ho may bo p-CBOcutuu : doubtless is
without foundation , since any such pro
ceeding would cull out a popular resent
ment which the government might IIml
exceedingly troublojomo. The recent
enthusiastic dumonstr.itlo.is by the people
ple on the ox-chancellor's progress
through Ctornviny shows In what great
esteem ho is still hold , an-1 It would un
doubtedly bo dangerous for the govern
ment to .iilumpt to punish him for his
uttarancos however irritating and mis
chievous they miy bo. *
The fiMiikness with which Bisnrirck
has orltk'isod the CJUMJ of the govern
muni w.is very likely imprudent. .
Tlionuip'jnir li'is doubtless known all
along that "tho man of bloj.l an.l Iron"
did not adiini-j his nnthods , but this
would not have miUorotl hid Bis.n.irclc
kept quiet. It will bj rotnjinbjrod that
u bho.'t tinu ujyo he g.u'o u Gorman
iiowsiupor an oUjnJud intjrvlow , in
which lu crltloisod tliu fo.-olya policy of
the omuro. ' . Ho s ild , umj.i ether
things , thitaftar Wi Hum's fruillosj
visit to the war at Narva he consented
toC.uinjjllorOinrivl'd groj.tjjt error
the broikln , ; of every link that bound
Gnrmuny and Uussln. Then followed a
pollcjy of friendliness ta the Poles ,
thro.itoning Russia with u Polish legion
in the event of war , and with a now
kingdom of Poland In oisu of Russian
dofoat. The ubsrtlvo Interview with
the czirut Narva WM i njullaljly foi-
lowed by the Emperor \VIUI am'u visit to
England , and by the uoirolluUou of tha
East African treaties , which could only
bo rogurdoil in an unfriendly dontonstra-
tlon uguiust Russia. All this naturally
resulted in the visit of the French llact
to Cronst.ult. it jforrlng to the in inner
in which ho had bion driven from olllco ,
Bismarck expressed a very slljiht opin
ion of the abilities and chur.ictoi * of his
successor , Count vo i Clprlvl.
This candid arraignment of what ho
believed to bo the mlsUkos of the gov
ernment naturally aroused the resent
ment of thoomporor and his chancellor ,
and they have lost no onpoi'tunltv to
lot it bo known th it they uro Intensely
bitter toward the nvin whoso great
genius and Indomitable will created the
Gorman omplro. This fooling is doubtless -
loss natural in the circumstances , but
the emperor and C.iprivl ought to see
that they will not help their cause by
relentlessly pursuing Bismarck , and to
undertake to punish him for his utter
ances might imperil the empire , for it
is evident that Bismarck enjoys a degree -
greo of popularity at least us great as
that of the emperor himself. As to
the wisdom or uroprioty of the ox-
chancellor's course opinions will bo
dlvidod , but his right to erltitHso the
government will not bo questioned
except by those who are the objects of
his criticism. Perhaps the worst that
can ho said of his conduct is that it
betrays a weakness which ho was not
supposed to have , that of disparaging
others as a means of commending him
self. But no one will doubt the loyalty
and patriotism of that wonderful man ,
whoso place in history neither Emperor
William nor Cliaucollor von Caprivf
can hope to rival. The man who es
tablished Gorman unity and whose
statesmanship for years completely
dominated Europe may bo silenced , but
ho will still bo the grandest character
that Germany has produced.
A suauKSTiux 'io TIIK
Among the thousands of visitors now
in Omaha there must bo many who have
never before had an opportunity to see
this part of the great west , and no doubt
a majority of the southern and eastern
delegates to the people's convention
have no personal knowledge of the
western country. They have read about
it and perhaps they have cherished the
idea of visiting it some time , but they
have never done so before. '
Most of those visitors uro interested
in the convention and will devote their
time to it while its sessions last , but It
is hardly to bo supposed "that they will
nil start for homo immediately upon its
adjournment. Many have como long
distances into a country that lias here
tofore boon as a sealed book to thoin ,
and now that they are hero it is to bo
hoped that they will take a good look at
Omaha and the great state of Nebraska ,
not to mention ether cities and states
worth ribitlnjr , which may bo reached
at small expense of money and time.
When the convention is ever the vis
itors will bo at llborty to give a little
attention to ether matters , and it will
bo natural for them to ask themselves
and ono another what conditions and
causes have conspired to produce a
great and prosperous city like ours
upon a spot that was beyond the con-
lines of civilization only a few years
ago. Lot thorn look at the sources of
this growth and development before
returning to their distant homos. A
short trip into the interior of the state
will bo pleasant at least , and possibly it
may bo prolltable. The citizens of No-
braslca are hospitable and \\ill welcome
them wherever they go. A little time
devoted to sight-.seeing and investiga
tion in Omaha and the surrounding
country will not be wasted.
THKUK can bo no bettor campaign ar
gument for the republican party than
the commercial report of the R. G. Dun
agency for the fiscal year just closed.
It says : "A llscal year , never matched
in the whole history of the country in
industrial production , in magnitude of
domestic changes or foreign trade , has
just closed. The imports for the year
have been about . * ; i3H,000,000tho increase
at Now York in Juno ever last year being -
ing about 18 per cent. Exports from
Now York gained 15.4 per cent and the
aggregate for the year has boon about
$1,027,000,000. R-ulroiid earnings have
been the largest in any year thus far ,
and clearings in Juno the h'.rgost ever
known in that month , exceeding last
year 8 per cent , and for the whole year
the largest ever known outside of New
York. Failures for the half-year have
boon oCOi ; , ngaiiibt 0,071 in 1601 , and lia
bilities , $02,000,000 , against i)2,000i)0 ! ) ( ) ) ,
and , on the whole , about the smallest
for live years. In spite of low prices
additional works are going into opera
tion , oven in the iron manufacture , and
yet more In woolen and cotton. More
over , the crops of this year promise to
bo very satisfactory , and the new half-
year begins with excellent prospects. "
What brighter prospects could this na
tion have in material prosperity ? Why
this Omaha convention ?

Mr. Miami's return to Washington to tnko
charge of the fight for the silver bill In the
house may not bring results as gratifying to
himself na ho nnttnipatos.
The free silver democrats nro not at nil Im
pressed with Mr. Bland's ability ns n loader
nud n movement was on foot today to tnko
the generalship of tbo light out ot bis hands.
It Is urged thnt Mr. Bland has none ot the
qualities of n loader on the floor ot the houso.
Ho Is intoloinnt of all opposition and tins
come to regard himself so completely ns the
only nnd original author of Iron silver legis
lation among the democrats that bo regards
with Impatience the suggestions of other
nnd younger mon who hnvo como Into tbo
house Einco his timo.
ll s conduct during the Inat frou silver
fight topothor with his vnry passionate and
Indiscreet utterances regarding Sneaker
Crisp after tbo Bland bill was defeated have
niiide him objectionable to the speaker and
his friends nnd the free silver men therefore
bollovo that It will bo the wiser policy to
keep Mr. Bland himself as much In the back
ground as possible.
Mrrlt or the Xmr Lender.
The new lender of the silver movement
will bo Mr. Pierce of Tennessee , n congress
man comparativolv young in experience , but
quick ana energetic , well sullied lu parlia
mentary tactics nnd of sufficient popularity
nmong all bin colleagues te become their
Ills resolution of Saturday to amend the
bouse rules so that tbo bill may bo passed
by a majority instead of n two-thirds vote ,
shows thnt ho proposes to play n bold game
nnd stake the whole issue on ono throw. It
was reported today that the republican in em
bers ot the house would offer no opposition
to the bill , as they were desirous of having
their democratic associates put thcrasolvos
aqtmroly on rocora ns favoring free silver.
But this report is denied by General Tracy
and ether anti-silver loader ; ) .
It is true thnt n number of the republicans
wish to sco the domocr.its placed in nn om-
barnsslng position before the country , but
ox-Sponkor Heed Insists thnt the principle of
opposition to free silver is very much more
important than nny temporary advantage
which may bo secured by placing the opposi
tion "lu the hole. " Mr. Hood's influences
are likely to prevail , as they are in line with
the well known desires of President Harri
son , so that tbo silver mon will not bo able
to count upon the assistance of the republi
Selecting ll Coinptrnllor.
It Is expected that tbo pro-ildont will send
the nomination of a comptroller of the cur
rency to tbo sonnto on Tuesday , ns ho leaves
Washington for the Adirondacks on Wednes
day and \ynnts to dispose of the question
Jjpforo going away. The friends of Deputy
Comptroller H. M. Nixon of Now Castle ,
Ind. , believe ho will bo promoted to the
comptrollership , while New York bankers

for a dozen years , and bus been 'n Now York
much of the tune during the past four years ,

possible evidence of capability to fill the
