PIIKSIDKNT IIAHHISON has reflected
great credit upon his judgment by the
selection of Senator Allison as the chair-
m.m of the international silver confer

floundering around In the treacherous

KX the sugar combine gets a black
eye all good citizens should rejoice. It
has just received one. Some weeks ago
It offered to allow a robnto to jobbers

prices. Tfu courts now intervene In
boh ilf of fair play all around , and the

Judge Clarktfon and the failure to 11 ml his

TO ao SOFTLY.
It is not at all surprising that the
managers of the democratic campaign
should have become alarmed nt the
freedom with which English journals
express their approval of the advanced
free trade position taken in the Chicago
platform. They know that the Ameri
can citizen who does not estimate this
warm and enthusiastic approval of Eng
land nt Us true value must bo very dull
indeed , The American voter may dis
trust his own judgment as to the com
parative merits of free trade and pro
tection , but ho need not have much sa
gacity to see thnt the Introduction of a
policy here which England earnestly
desires as n reason of profit to herself
cannot bo advantageous to this country.
Whether the English journalists have
themselves observed th-xt. their utter
ances on this subject nro damaging to
democratic prospects or whether the
Cleveland managers have called their
attention to that taut , wo do not know ,
but certain It Is that they are now tryIng -
Ing to suppress the oxhuborant en
thusiasm which the democratic attitude
has aroused In England. This is the
way the Liverpool Eclio treats the sub
ject : "Tho discussion of the question
at Issue from the English point of view
has only one ofToct In the States , and
that injurious and paralyzing to those
who nro fighting the battle ot free
tr.ido. Every public expression of opin
ion In this country hoatllo to the Mo-
Klnloy tariff , from a British point of
view , Is telegraphed across the Atlan
tic and eagerly reproduced in the re
publican' papers throughout the coun4
try. As wo said before , the apostles of
free trade , If they wish to further the
principles they are so proud of , should
rigidly hold their tongues during the
present presidential catnpiign. Their
utterances do inc.ilculablo harm to the
democratic cause , and if Mr. Cleveland
Is after all defeated It will bo largely
owing to the too loudly and Indiscreetly
expressed sympathy proceeding from
these shores. "
This is very candid. It is much like
the advlco which a cautious bunco man
would glvo to an Indiscreet and impetu
ous confederate in laying pinna to fool
an unsuspecting agriculturist from the
pastoral environments of Wayback. Wo
rather adinlra the nerve of these Eng-
ish newspapers. There Is something
sublime about their assumption that we
will not hear them if they only take off
their shoos and go softly. Their posi
tion , briefly stated , is this : The demo
cratic party is on our side ; the republic
can party doesn't know enough to go in
when It rains ; and yet wo must bo care
ful not to arouse suspicion by winking
too conspicuously at the free trade poli
cy of the democrats.
Of course the publication of euoh arti
cles iu England appears to Americans
somewhat absurd. They will laugh at
6uch utterances ana wonder if they fair
ly represent I ho English estimate of the
Intelligence of the American voter. As
a matter of fact they certainly do. It is
Impossible for tbo British mind to com
prehend the true relation of the Ameri
can voter to the American government.
In this country the individual citizen
docs his own thinking and considers
questions of national policy in all their
bearings , and no policy that does not
commend itself to the intelligent judg
ment of n majority of the voters can over
bo put into practice. In making up the
judgment the voter will not bo uarrow-
mlnded enough to oppose a principle
solely because it ( Inds favor in England ,
but ho cannot fail to perceive that in the
great commercial warfare between this
country and Great Britain the policy
which the latter moat wishes the Unltofl
States to adopt is one by which our Joss
would bo commensurate with her gain.
It is amusing to near the English
newspapers warning ono another against
making too much praise for fear of
awakening suspicion hero , but the truth
is that the precaution is wasted. The
people of the United States understand
the attitude of England on this question.
OERllYMANDEnED iVEII' YORK.
Among the many flagrant abuses of
power recently committed by the demo
cratic nurtv none has boon character
ized by a bolder disregard of justice and
of constitutional requirements than the
reapportionment of senate and assembly
districts m.tdo by the legislature of New
York. The course of that party in the
gerrymanders of Wisconsin and Michi
gan was bad enough so bad , indeed ,
that the supreme courts of those states ,
without a dissenting opinion , declared
their acts to bo null and void but in
reckless violation of the fundamental
law of the state the legislature of Now
York wont beyond those examples of
It was the boast of the friends of
David Bennett Hill that he gave the
slate of Now York a legislature demo
cratic in both branches for the first
time In many years. The people oleotod
a republican sotmto , but the democrats ,
under the leadership of Hill , stole that
body and the principal object of the
theft was to reapportlon the legislative
districts so as to perpetuate democratic
control of the legislature. The puui
thut was carefully arranged by the ma
chine was fully carried out , and had it
been allowed to stund unchallenged the
democrats would doubtless have re-
talnod control of the legislative depart
ment of the state for m.my years to
But the republicans determined not to
permit this violation of the plain man
date of the CQtibtitutlon to go unchal
lenged , nnd at the llrst opportunity the
supreme court ot the state waa culled
upon to pass upon the constitutionality
of the roapportioninent act Tills came
when the supervisors of Monroe county
refused to ptocecd under the act on the
ground that it was not constitutional.
The court was asked to Issue a writ of
mandamus requiring the board of super
visors to reapportlon the assembly illsi
trlots , wtiloh it declined to do , holding
the lrx\v to be unconstitutional.
It Is unnouostfivry to refer to the rea
sons given by the court for Its decision ,
because those are not of general Inter
est. It is sufficient to bay thut they
intilfo It perfectly clear that this act of
the democratic legislature of Now York ,
convened In extraordinary session for
the purpose of adopting this loglnlatlon ,
unmistakably violates the constitution
of the state. The wrong thus sought to
bo perpetrated uuon the people of Now
York ia aggravated by the fact that it
was the result of careful deliberation.
The act was not passed at the regular
session. It was not ono of many moos-
urea engaging the attention of the legis
lature , and therefore liable to bo
slighted in consideration. It was
framed with deliberation and passed nt
a special session when no other matters
interfered with Its consideration. It
was therefore a carefully devise ! plan
to give the democracy control of the
legislative department for an indollnlto
period regardless of the requirements
of the fundamental law. It furnishes
another striking example of what the
democratic party is capable of doing in
order to retain power. The question
has yet to bo passed upon by the court
of appeals , but there can bo no doubt
that the decision of the supreme court
will bo affirmed.

That Is right , but the Almiphty put a big

Anthracite coal is produced in Europe
nnd in portions of Asia , and is undoubt

over the greater portion of the globo.
When tho. Almighty "planted" the
luxuriant vegetation of the carbonifer

THE MORETAItY SYSTEM.
President Harrison has shown excel
lent judgment and absolute fairness In
selecting the commissioners on the part
of the United States to the international
monetary conference which is to bo hold
soon in ono of the capitals of Europe
not yet designated. The silver question
will engage , it is presumed , the entire
attention of the conference , and both
sides of that question are ably ropro-
sonlcd'by th o commissioners appointed.
No man in the country , with Uio possi
ble exception of Senator Sherman , is
bettor Informed on the subject than
Senator Allison , and ho with Mr. Can
non of Now York nnd General Walker
of Massachusetts represent the opposi
tion in this country to the free and un
limited coinage of silver. Unquestion
ably the very ablest advocate in the
United Stiles of the free coinage of
silver , and ono of the best informed men
upon financial questions generally , is
Senator Jones of Nevada , and his views
will bo ably supported by Mr. McCroary
of Kentucky. It is to bo noted , also ,
that while both sides of the siVvor ques
tion are thus fairly represented all sec
tions of the country have received con
Tno place of ineotingr of the confer
ence-has not yet boon determined , but it
will doubtless bo London or Paris. This
does not appear to bo a matter of very
great importance , though it has boon
assumed that the place of mooting
might have some influence upon the re
sult of the deliberations. The real ob
ject of the conference is to consider in
what way an enlarged use of silver in
international exchange can bo brought
about , wliich will involve the question
of an international ratio for silver , but
it is to bo expected that the subject of
the free coinage of silver will receive
some attention. It would bo hazardous
to make any prediction regarding the
outcome of the conference , or whether it
will have any practical result , but it
may bo said that there is no general ex
pectation that anything will bo accom-
ollshod in furtherance of the cause of
free silver coinage. So far as appears
there is no nation of Europe that is in
the least disposed to laver this policy ,
but on the contrary tlio tendency among
mobt of them seems to bo to cling moro
closely than over to the gold standard.
The sentiment in England favorable
to bimotallsm has undoubtedly grown
some within the last few years , but it Is
entertained by only a very small minor
ity of the people , embracing few of the
moneyed and Influential classes of the
people. Gorman sentiment in this matter -
tor is largely controlled by that of Eng
land , and the most recent expressions
of the loading financiers of Germany do
not warrant any hope that the influence
of that country will bo cast on the sldo
of free silver. Franco shows no symp
toms of a change of fooling regarding
silver , nnd Austria is making all prac
ticable haste to got on a gold basis.
This being the situation the advocates
of free silver coinage are likely to have
a somewhat discouraging part in ttio
While the conference will simply con- ,
sldor the monetary situation , with
reference particularly to silver , and the
commissioners will report the con
clusions to their respective govern
ments , the result of the deliberations
will carry with it a certain authority.
It will conclusively show just how the
loading nations of the world stand re
garding a silver currency , and this may
reasonably bo oxpoated to exert an im
portant influence upon publl-j sentiment
in this country. The American views
on this vital question will bo ably pre
sented uy the commissioners on the part
of the United States.

tent janitors to care for those rooms.
They are accessible by elevator , while
the present Board of Education rooms
can only bo reached by climbing stoop
flights of stairs.
Even if the city council wore disposed
to refund the $22,000 which the school
board has contributed toward the erec
tion of the city hall the board would not
bo justified from u business standpoint
in its attitude because the city would
have no use for the rooms that have
been sot apart for the board and these
rooms represent an investment of over

leaving off one story.

THE SPIUKH AM ) THE FLY.
Certain Omaha typesetters have or-
organized n campaign club with the
avowed object to defeat Whitolaw Reid.
This of course moans that they intend
to vote ngnlnst Harrison , for you cannot
vote for Harrison and against Reid.
The pretext for this move is the contro
versy between Reid and the New York
printers' union , which was amicably
settled months ago.
Now every printer knows that a vote
cast against Harrison and Reid is a vote
for Cleveland and Stevenson. What
has Cleveland over done for organized
or unorganized labor except to cheapen
it by favoring foreign competition ?
At this tlmo the Now York Evening
Pott , the most rampant champion of
Cleveland and free trade , Is a "rat"
office and so are the Courier-Journal and
scores of other democratic print shops.
But ttio move in Omaha , ostensibly
gotten up to punish Reid , is in reality
concocted by democrats in the interest
of C'ovoland and Stevenson. The ver
iest political numblkull knows enough
to know that ovory. jvpto taken from
Harrison and cast for Weaver is a vote
for Grover Cleveland. Weaver has no
moro chance to o elected president
this year than Bolvzt'LQckwood ' or Pro
hibition Pisk had f6urf years ago.
THE proposal to malco the school year
thirty-eight wooKi Unstoad of forty
should nol bo basely disposed of. The
interests of both vpupls ) and teachers
are involved. Is it dislrablo from the
point of view off'ttho welfare of the
former , to shorten the school year ?
Many of the clul&roplwho attend the
public schools are so circumstanced that
they cannot go beyond the grammar
grade. Would it not bo an injustice to
such to further reduce the school yearp
As to the teachers , they could not rea
sonably expect to receive as much pay
for thirty-eight weeks ns they do for
forty. Would they bo equally ofllciont
and zealous nt a reduced salary , and
would there not bosomo danger of losing
the bolter class of thorn if the pay wore
lowered ? These are questions to bo
carefully considered. The reason for
the proposed shortening of the school
year Is that the first half of September
is usually about as hot as any period of
the year , and that consequoatly very
little is accomplished in the schools.
But at any rate they got fully prepared
for actlvo work when the weather becomes -
comes favorable for it. There nro two
sides to this question , and the ono that
should prevail is that which assures the
greatest good to the greatest number
and will not effect 'any impairment of
the efficiency of the schools.
IT is said that there are 8,000 empty
houses iu San Francisco and that rents
are nt the lowest point. Ono reason for
this is said to bo that tlio development of
loan nnd homestead associations there
has boon great , and every house built
by a member of such an organization
leaves a vacant dwelling for rent.
There is loss prosperity and progress in
California now than might bo expected
from the long series of booms which
that state has had. A partial explana
tion of this it ) found in the fact that the
state has 71,000 Chinese , whose earn
ings are not loss than $20,000,000 yearly.
This income Is sent to China and , there
fore does not find its way into the chan
nels of business in the communities
from which it is drawn. As this has
boon going on for many years it is esti
mated that $450,000,000 has boon sent to
China from California , If this great
sum had boon put into business it would
have vastly Increased the prosperity of
the golden state and would have con
tributed to the woUaro of the whole

Norfolk News : Tbo republican stnto con
vention did its work wall and placed < n tbo
fleld a ticket with which no republican can
llnd fault. Not only should tbo candidates
named draw tbo full party etrongth , but their
names and tbo bolter influences in the party
that brought about their nominations should
win back many who had bocoma dissatlsllud
and wandered away tmm tho/old. The party
Is united , nnd everything points to a sweep
ing republican victory all along tbo line in
Nebraska this fall.
Lincoln Liberty ( alliance ind. ) : The re
publican nominee for governor was formerly
ouo of Nebraska's supreme Judges and four
years a niombor of congress from this stato.
Ho was retired by tbo railroad companies because -
cause of his anti-monopoly views. Ho is a
clean man , of largo oxpoiioiico in publto
affairs , able , fearless and indomitable in
any undertaking which bo espouses. Ho is ,
beyond any question , tbo very strongest man
tbo republicans could bavo nominated , nnd
bis name at the bond o' tbolr ticket means
that the bettor element ol the party con
trolled its convention and that If the Inde
pendents win victory this year they must
light a bold , fearless nnd aggressive cam
paign. Should the democrats nominate
olthor Broady or General Victor Vifquuln
tbo campaign will bo nn intmosting ono.
Fremont Tribune ; The ticket nominated
at Lincoln is a clean and nblo ono from top to
bottom. JudgeGrouuso , tbo nominee for gov
ernor , is a man of irroat ability ami acknow
ledged honesty. A resident of Nebraska for
thirty ynnn bo has served bis stnta in hon
orary positions in a most honorable manner ,
and is now rendering conspicuous service as
assistant secretary of the treasury at Wash
ington. On tun botioh of this district and on
the supreme bench of tbo utato ho proved
himself a Jurist of a high order and unim
peachable Integrity. In congress ho was no-
tiva and vigilant mid ot great service to bis
stato. iio has always boon Iu line with tbo
best oloiEcnt of tbo republican party and es
pecially that portion of it distinguished for
its strong anti-monopoly sentiment. Ho will
bo u tower of strength to the whole ticket.
Koarnoyllub : In the present situation In
Nobrasku no other nomination for governor
except that of Loron/o Crounso was logical
or advisable. Ho was nn essential part of
the situation. His following was Immova
ble , although ho was not in the state nnd
usad no personal influence to secure the
nomination , nnd bis steady gain through live
ballotn could not In any particular bo traced
to the man seeking the ofllco. Personally
Loronzo Crounso is all that a candidate
for governor should bo. Ho has boon for
tbobo many years in full accord with the so-
called "reform" movement within the party ;
bis bandtt nro untaiutnd by any jobs political
or otherwise ; bis record as judge , congress

alike , In favor of the tloltot. Of nil tbo biut-

t General C. H. Van VVyclt was In the city n
couple of hours yostordny , but pulled out for
his homo-in Wyoming on the lOo'clock tram.
Uogarding the nomination of Crounso , ho
said that the republicans bad undoubtedly
put up ono of the strongest mon In the party.
Ho expressed the bnllof thnt In &omo respects
Crounso was much stronger than Majors ,
whllo In some other.ho didn't know but
"Tom" would huvo boon Just as strong.
"Tbo nomination of Crouuso means ono
thing , " said the general , "and tbat is that
wo are to have a decent campaign , a gentle
manly contest. I have known Judge Crounso
for years , nnd our relations have always boon
fnendlv , nnd I nm sntlsllod thnt nothing will
bo said or done to change these relations , "
W. C. Holdon ot tbo Lincoln Liberty Is
still camping on Van Wyok's trail nnd has
failed to put the general's name on the inde
pendent ticket which ho curries nt tbo mnit-
hocd of his paper. Mr. Holdon explains :
"Liberty Is nu independent newspaper and
Its editor is nn independent and will support
every man on the Independent state ticket
except C. H. Van Wyck. Wo decline to sup
port him because ho Is not an independent
and is not in sympathy with the tollers. Ho
is a millionaire , a banker , bondholder and n
'forager oft tno onomy" for the spoils of of
fice. Wo shall bo able to glvo good and suf
ficient reasons for the position wo have taken
nnd shall ioarlosily pursue our way In future
without paying nny attention whatever to
the assaults of fees from within the ranks of
the independent party. "
Some scheming politician secured a vote in
the Lincoln convention to whloii ho was not
entitled. On every ballot tboro wns ono
vote cast from Arthur county. As there Is
no county In Nebraska named Arthur ( tbo
unorganized territory which bore thut unmo
having boon swallowed up by McPhorton
county ) somebody bad evidently worked up
a job. Two ycni-3 ago the same trick was
played In the old Third district congres
