ACCORDING to their own plain , un varnished tales , iho contrnctors and builders of Omaha nro working purely for their houlth and tlio good of hum.in- THE busiest man in Oraiha today nmong the plug uglies and ward heelers is one C. 11.

A OKKAT many republicans of the Seventh ward dostro to bo represented in the council by Mr , D. J. Collins Mr. Collins is mi energetic , wide-awake young man who is thoroughly competent to discharge the duties of the position. DnWiTTVAUNr.H of the Tariff Uo- form club of Now York will make some speeches in Iowa nnd Nebraska. Mr. Warner will bo remembered as n nice looking young man with u pleasant voice whom Governor McKinley punched full of holes nt Madison , Wis. , lust month. IT is now said that the commissioner of statistics of Massachusetts is pre paring to innlco n report on wages sim ilar to that of Pock of Now York. The markets nnd the facts are all against the democrats thin your nnd they have noth ing loft but fiction und prediction- dire calamity. IT is astonishing that not more than fifteen counties will take part In the exhibit of Nebraska products to bo made on the train sent oust. It is certainly commendable for the association to labor u nder ouch great disadvantages , but it is u bad sign for the enterprise and loyalty of the other Nebraska coun ties who refuse to take part. THE campaign in Georgia is progress ing In the same educational and monotonous onous manner. Tom Watson and Major IJInck attempted n joint discussion on Tuesday , each to speak one hour and the llrst speaker to close with a fifteen- minute reply , mid the i > dobito" : occupied utl day nnd was not hoard by one-fifth of tjio audience , while the rest WUH ap plauding and ohooring , etc. , in that mild , unobtrusive Georgia way.

What horrors they hitvo undergone wo shall never know , while listening to the plnlnta of tlie n.imporcd ones on i < * ire island. TIIK MOWS of the oiiptiiro In Now Mox- li-o of the notorious D.iltou gang of train robborj , which hits perpetrated BO many oi'linjj in Indian Territory , will be re * colveil with ertnt Bntittfaotlon every- whore. Tho-o is no o.iibs of dajporailoos more drondod by Iho publlo than those vt to opjrnto on the nillro.idii. About h ilf n century In state prison WIIB the re- w.ird that Pi-rry got In Now YorK stuto n short time ngo for train robbing , and it is to bo hoped that the IXilton gang be ua elfoctivuly illspoaud of. A cable dispatch of n few days ngo stated that the fooling IB growing In Wales that the tin pinto traJo with America is doomed to virtual extinc tion. Tin plate works In Wales are closing every week , said this report , and the best men that have boon employed in thom nro going to the United States. Those who hnvo taken an optimistic view of the situation predict that the trade will bo saved from destruction by the capture of now markets to take the place of the American. On the other hand , those who take a pessimistic view of the situation and prospects , and these nppoar to bo the more numerous , point to the fact that sixty factories in Eng land nnd Wales , formerly engaged In the manufacture of tin pinto , have stopped , and that n dozen mnro nro preparing - paring to cToso. This situation neces sarily menaces the iron industry of Wales , which Is loss active than for merly. Corroborative evidence of the depressed condition of the Welsh tin plate Industry is supplied by the Man chester Gitimlian , which stated in Us issue of August 29 that oil the preceding Saturday llftoon additional Welsh tin plate works wore closed "In consequence of the operations of the McKinley tariff act. mid it is now estimated that about 10,000 Welsh operatives are thrown out of employment"largo numbers of whom wore preparing to emigrate to this country. In the meantime the tin plalo indus try in the United States is making steady progress. On last Tuesday there was dedicated at Klwood , Ind. , a now tin pinto factory , one of the largest , nnd mo.U complete plant's in the country of the kind , which Is giving employment to several hundred men. Reference bus heretofore been made to the last report of the special ngont of the Treasury de partment on statistics relating to the manulacturo of tin pinto in the United States , f i om which it appears that this industry has grown from nothing less than Uvo years ago to a production nt tlio rate of 20,000,000 pounds u year , and the next report , to Uo expected shortly , will undoubtedly increase this amount. Thus while the works in Wains are shutting down now ones nro springing into existence in this country , and ex port workmen nro coming here to enable us to make tin plate that will success fully compete in the markets of the world , whenever wo shall produce moro than the homo demand , with the tinplate plato of Wales. It is quite enough for the present , however , to consider this industry in connection with the homo market , for when wo nro able to produce sulllt'iont to supply that wo shall have attained one of the greatest industrial achievements in our history. Kvory now development goes to show that this is possible. It hns boon said of the democratic party that it is the party ot prediction , and if results didn't ovnrtako the prediction - diction it would bo the greatest party In the world. The democratic party pro- dieted that tin plate could not bo made in the United States , and that any effort to establish the industry hero must in evitably prove n failure. Tlio result has demonstrated the worthloisness of that prediction , us has been the case with many others made from time to time by the same political party for the purpose of discouraging tlio industrial develop ment of tlio United States , keeping down the wages of labor , mid rendering the Amarican people dependent upon the manufacturers of Great Britain. Kvofy great industry that has grown up in this country under the fostering c.iro of protection has at the outset met with the same objection und opposition from tlio democratic party which that party 1ms made to the promotion hero of the tin plate industry. trinsmxa ru KIBI > ui > COUHAGK. Chairman Htyrity of the democratic national committee und the irrepressi ble Don M. Dickinson , chairman of the campaign committee , who by reason of his rainbow-chasing tendencies is said to bo n source of constant anxiety to Mr. William C. Whitney , the chief manager of the Cleveland campaign , hivvo issued nn address congratulating the country on the resul ! of the recent state elections. Tlio fact that the re publican vote of Vermont and Maine foil below that of four years ago , with which comparison is made , is regarded by Mosai'3. Hurrity und Dickinson as evidence that "the btrong tendency of public sentiment is with tno domoc- rac ) ' , " and they remark that "our frienclH everywhere are entitled to take fresh courage from these results. " It is astonishing from what small things ttio average politician and these gentleman are not above the average - ago will gather hope , Ono would suppose - pose that a republican plurality in Ver mont of over 10,000 and in Maine of about 12,000 , oven though not bo largo as four years ago , would bo regarded by the opposition as sulllclontly formidable ) nt this juncture , but the democratic chairmen see in it n , ' 'toiidoncy" and they make haute to notify their pvtv : of the discovery. Well , lot us inquire as to what substantial ground there is for the assumption that the republican vote in Vermont nnd Maine menus a ten dency of public sentiment toward the democracy. As to Vermont the full vote is at hand , and It shows that while the re- publicuiib cast uoino ! ) ,00f ) votesloss , than in 18SS the democrats mada no gain , simply holiilirg their vote of four years ago. The prohinitionlats made a gain of u few hundred. What became of the republican voos that wore apparently lost ? Why they merely utnyod away from tlio . It polls. was evidently n case of Inattention to political duty. Many ' " 'persons , in the rural districts" particu larly , dlu not t'llco the trouble to vote , fooling , as is too often and tou generally the case , that their votes wore' nut needed. Undoubtedly these voters will return to a sense of their duty In No vember .and glvo the candidates of the republican party an old-time plurality. Inasmuch as the democr-Hio vote was not incrcabod tlio "tendency of public sentiment" discerned by Messrs. llar- rlty and Dlckhidon will hardly bo soon by anybody else. The full ngtiroi for Maine are not yet reported , but there U reason to expect that like those of Vermont they wilt bhow that the democrats did no' moro than hold their own. The decline In the republican vote ns compared with' 1888 Is fairly explained by the fact that the Australian ballot law first wont , into effect at the late election , and not only did many republicans stay away from the polls but the mistakes made in marking ballots , which necessitated their exclusion from the count , told most heavily against the republicans. Furthermore , there was too much apathy growing out of ovbrconildonco , and this may do good In arousing republicans to action in November. It will bo remem bered that In the gubernatorial election of 18SO the republicans lost the state , being defeated by an "alliance of demo crats and groonbackors on governor , a result which made the democrats nil over the country jubilant. But Maine gave her electoral vote to Garllold , and undoubtedly she will give Harrison a plurality this year as largo as that of four years ago. The democratic managers arc whist ling to keep their courage up. run VK Tno societies of Old Time and Mili tary telegraphers who hnvo boon the srtiests of Omaha for the past two days comprise a body of men who wore of in- ostlmuulo service to the government in the period of its greatest peril. The re bellion gave a tremendous impetus to the development of telegraphy in the United , States. A demand was made upon tlio inventive ) ingenuity of tlio country for methods that would broaden the scope and usefulness of the telegraph - graph , and the men in the sorvlco con tributed largely to the improvements and advances that resulted from this de mand. There wore no moro patriotic men than these who engaged in the military tolcgrapli service of the government. It involved danger , hardship mid almost incessant work. The operators in the field learned some of the severest les sons of military life , and as a rule their lines were not cast in pleasant places. They wore nn absolutely loyal body of men. Knowing the very innermost secrets of military operations , there is no record of one of them having ever botraynd the conlidenco reposed in him. They wore men of courage who n3vor hesitated to accept any duty to which they were assigned and never faltered in Its performance. Such were the intelligent , patriotic , devoted mon , some of whoni Omaha has entertained , nnd novbr has she had guests moro worthy of her respect and hospitality or more capable of appreci ating the consideration shown them. TIIK BXKMIUS 11 tl HAS M.IDK. It is the habit of the mugwump friends of Grover Cleveland to profess to love him for the onernics ho has made , meaning the mon in his own party who have opposed nnd assailed him. This implies that they conceive themselves to bo superior beings , nnd that as Mr. Cleveland has courted their favor and thereby lost the respect o'f many democrats ho is therefore a man of their own kind and worthy to bo the object of their most affectionate regard. But a great change has lately token plno in the attitude of these immacu late special champions of tlio ox-pres ident. They have seen the handwriting on the wall in the state of Now York , mid in hhecr desperation they turn to the enemies that Cleveland hns made and appeal for help. Murphy and C'rokcr and Shcohnn and Hill have been pursunucd , it is said , to withhold their liiiiids from the work no longer. Bourke Cockrun is coining west nnd his clarion voice is to bo heard in behalf of the inflated gentleman of whom he said in the Chicago convention : 1 bollevo U was tlio distinguished genUo- tnnii from Massachusetts. General Collins. who declared there wai no Jeinocrnt iti this union that would vote against Unit tlckot , but there are behind htm two heroes whoso deeds have not escaped the alien I Ion of his tory , two noroos who have led the utiton nrmies to victory unil who have uover muiio luces at the vanqulsued fee , nnd tboy will tult vou hero , cotnndas who foutjht with them , heroes who sustained them and heroes who full oy tlicir aide , they will toll you ttiiit thu holdior vote of Now YorK of whom there are iij.OOJ , at least , democratic will not support thu nomination of Mr. Cleveland and did not support Dim ID ISbS. There tire many the isands of Grand Army veterans in the wobt who will bo very glad to see the distinguished Now York orator who so eloquently and truthfully represented their attiludo and expressed their sentiments in re- .sh.ot | to the candidacy of Grover Cleve land. Mr. Cocicran is one of the en emies that Cleveland has made , and as they belong to the same hostile camp they will naturally have a fellow-feeling for the orator who is about to move upon our works. Wo welcome Bourke Cockran as a democrat who has a cor rect conception of what thu old voter/ins want or who at loust knows what they do not want. The season of veterans' reunions is now at an end , but if the eloquent Now Yorker will keep right on toiling the country what the battle- scarred defenders of the union do not w.mt they will give him more ovations than he ever experienced before in his life. There is a splendid field for him in thu woat. for tills country is full of vetcr.ins of the war. The enemies that Mr. Cleveland has made uro legion. Not , alone the power ful politicians of Tammany , but thou sands of union veterans scattered all over the land , with other thousands of their sympathizers , will have to be counted in that company. free traders are always clamorIng - Ing about "tho markets of the world , " thus belittling our homo market and the vastnosH of the American nation of con sumers. Yet tlio best of authorities de clare that under the most favorable con ditions not 10 per cent of all our farm products , including cotton , find a mar ket oulsldo of our country , and to in crease that percentage the free traders would ruin our home market and all our manufacturing industries. Tin : blttorquarrol that has boon going on for some months between the demo cratic factions In NJW Jersey came near culminating In the breaking up of the state convention at Trenton , It is many years since the Now Jersey democ racy has been so hopelessly divided and so poorly prepared to make a successful campaign. Exclusive of Hudson county , which embraces Jersey City mid sevornl suburban villages , the state hns given republican pluralities in the last four presidential elections. Several causes iMW work together to demoralize ) and divide the Now-Jersey democrats , and it Is believed by good judges of the situation in both parties that the chance of carrying the state for Cleveland this year 1s very slender. Now Jor.soy Is a manufacturing state and is therefore op posed to free trade. Thousands of tier cltt/ons of both parties are Interested in manufacturing enterprises , while thou sands of others are wage earners nnd therefore favor protection. Add to this the fact that the legislature of the state , strongly domocratlo in both branches , is on record in favor of the anthracite coal combine , nnd ills notdlfllcult to see that the republican outlook there is brighter than It has boon before in many years. Tin- : sugar beet harvest Is now in pro gress In Nebraska antl farmers have begun to deliver the crop nt the mignr factories. The crop Is much bettor this year than In 1S')0 ' ) and IS'.ll ' , and ns it is now matured and out of danger this im portant contribution lo the yearly in come of the agricultural class is assured beyond question. It will bring n good deal of money into the pockets of the farmers , and to tliat extent it w.111 glvo deep pain to the prophets of calamity. If tlio corn crop also Ioscipc < harm and fulfills its present promise the disap pointment of the populists will bo sim ply harrowing. Tun remark of Secretary Ilodgin of the Nebraska State Business Men's asso ciation that this state wants 1,000,000 moro people expresses an important truth that seems to bo fully recognized by those who are loading the exhibition train with products of this state , by moans of which outsiders are to lie shown what Nebraska can do. When they are shown samples of wheat from fields that yielded ns high as sixty bushels to the nero , nml other products equally interesting , they will undoubt edly begin to como this way at n rate that will soon mnko up the additional 1,000,000 of population that isvuntod. .
