Harmon Does a Little Revealing.
if th facts aa to hi and Mr.
Bryan's relations are aa Governor
Harmon Mates them. It appears that
h ha herd rather patiently all
tvyt tbe Nebrsskan haa chosen to
uy of him. According to the gov
ernor, Mr. Br? a aud him th re
markable proposition in 1104, of of
fering "to place m in nomination it
I Would have the Ohi AelagatloS re
consider Its deniaioa to hava my
name presented." And further: "Ia
1I0S J constantly urged hta (Bryan-)
election, declaring I would willingly
be defeated for governor If It would
help him, aad durlag our Joist cam
paign he repeatedly praised my f
fort ta bis bebair aad told many
person h meant to offer Ke s alaca
In his cabinet if he was elected."
This revealing ot old skeletons
naturally suggest the question. If
Bryan thought in 101 thai Harmon
was good enough tor a cabinet office
sader him, what atrocity coatd Har
mon have committed since then to
put him so far beyond the pale of the
Nebraska' favo-1 It must hava
been something awful. Will not Mr.
Bryaa taks the public into bis confi
dence and tell what It was Also, will
ha not explala why be proposed that
tricky deal to Mr.. Harmon la ltd?
Tbia la all very Interesting. Our
democratic friends may perform
quits a public service if tbey con
tinue their domestic revelations.
Pigs aad Dandelions.
Soma Iowa farmers advocate pigs
as antidotes for daadeliona. Just
fence la your lawn aad turn a pig
Inside, they say, and tbe daadeliona
will soon be gone. No doubt, but what
about tba lawn? "Pigs Jn clover"
may do little ham, for mowing ma
chines are heavy enough to traverse
hog-wallowed ground, but ths ordi
nary laws mower would make slow
progress ever a thoroughly rooted
The pigs, we are assured, will go
after the daadellos In oarssst, be
cause they like them; they will not
merely nibble off tbe tops, hut go
down into the soil aad get the roots.
That sounds Bke n good thing. But
after getting all the roota ot tbe dan
delions, what thea? Possibly a well
mannered pig would not molest tha
grass, hut all ptga are not well-
mannered. Besides, our city ordi
nances are so esthetic regarding tha
matter of pig culture In front lawns
that aa obstacle seems to arise there.
It may bo over-much skef llciam, bat
somehow there Is as 111 odor of sus
picion about thla pig scheme making
good. What might work well on an
Iowa farm might not do at all on an
Omaha blue grasa lawn.
Suggestions are being made as to

NEW TORK. Msy st-Ts the Editor
ef The Bee: tUforrug to the story of
the best spike told by Uncle Joe Redman
la your Issue of the sth instant. I notice
that Mr. Redmond waa enable ta say
what became of tbe gold spike which was
used ea May Mb lbs, whea the Unloa
Padfle and the Central Pacific were
connected at Promontory Point. Doubt
less some of your ether rsadsif are
aware what became ot It, but as tbey
may not draw attention te the matter,
some of the railroad man bow connected
with the road aad others may be later.
sated te know that the aplke was con
verted Into a number ot small splkss a
Uttla ever an Inch long and used for
watch charms. I have seen several ot
these spikes, eas being. I believe, now la
the possession ef Oliver Aroes. a director
ef the prdeesat Unloa Paotfie, a grand
son ef Oliver Ames, who had so much te
do with tb building of the road. Cap
tain Fred 8. Hodges of Boston, who was
a young engineer at Promontory when
the line was built, I also tha owner ef
one of the gold spikes, aad It would not
be surprising If ene la owaed by General
Qrenvtlle M. Dodge, tbe veteran engineer
of the Union Padfle and numerous other
roads, who Is now living nearby you In
Uncle Redman's contribution to ths his
tory of the Isst spike Is very Interesting
and a rcurst.
The original picture of the ceremonies
described by Mr. Redman painted under
the direction of Governor Stanford la
still te Ban Francisco, hut I think It ts
not owned by ths Southern Pacino com
pany. A vary fins copy which hung m
the exseutlvs offices ef the Union Pacific
ta the Equitable building was unfortu
nately destroyed In ths fire of January
last. I understsnd a very insrreatlng
story attaches te the original painting to
the effect that some prominent men
were omitted and others included, el.
though they were not present at the
ceremonies, but I regret I em not In
formed aa to tbe facta. Tout very truly,

Plettsmoath Journal: Omaha enjoyed
a hot time te their dty electioa for seven
commissioners. The commission form ef
goverament may prove all light for
Omaha, but we believe ths people ef the
metropolis will be es anxious te cut looes

a Uttle more so.
St, Paul Republican: Mayor Dahlmaa
had a "clean up" day la Omaha last

there was aa extra lot at garbage to haul

couldn't beat Jim tn Omaha" beglne to
look as If tt were the whole truth.
North Platte Republican: Omaha held
its first election Tuesday under the com
mission form of government and the "oa
the square" candMatea, beaded by Mayor
Jim Dahlman. had a decisive victory
over the Citizens' union. This electioa
verifies the statement that Mayor Dahl- .

tainly with him all the time.
