Tho only thing that induced Mayor
Weir to suspend Chief of Police Cooper
and Ofllcor Pound was his desire to
show his authority, and this is one of
tho worst featureBof tho mayor's unfor-
tunato mental infirmity. Confirmed
lunatics often imagine they aro popes or
kings. Just what Mayor Woir thinks
ho is, wo do not know; but theio is no
doubt that ho has the most exidted idea
of his own importance.
Chiefs of police to him aro mere jack
Mr. Cooper has lived on ice bo long
that ho has becomo very cool, and when
tho mayor addressed the insulting letter

His Honor's weakness, considerately re

flthut he would bore-instated just as soon
as tho mayor had satisfied himself that
ho had made a proper showing of his
Nobody will contend that ofliccra of
tho luw should bo permitted to leave tho
city at will; but tho chief of polico is
certainly moro than a lackey, and in
caso of great emergency ho should bo
allowed to uso his discrcction. In fact,
as matters now stand, it would be u
great deal hotter it tho chief of police
had moro authority over tho polico forco
and tho mayor less.
Thcro aro pcoplo who would liko to
know why tho erratic individual known
as Mayor Weir, interfered with tho duo
process of law, and remitted tho lines of
a number of citizens Who wcro recently
arrested in tho disroputablo resorts of
tho city, and allowed them to go freo
upon tho payment of costs. Tho more
wo Beo of Mayor Weir's reform tho moro
unique it appears.
Tho mayor did not make any attempt
to wipo out tho moral rottenness known
politely as tho social evil, until driven to
his duty, and now ho reaches nut and
protects those whom tho law would
punish. A queer kind of reform.
Louis Norburg, of Omaha, who at
tempted to corrupt a juror in Judge
Dufllio's court, by ofToring him 8100 to
influonco tho jury in his favor in a caso
pending before- it, was tho other day
fined 81 and sentenced to ono day's im
prisonment in tho county jail. Tho
press dispatch bub: ' The jury when
thoy rotumed tho verdict of guilty,
recommended tho prisoner to tho morcy
of tho court."
Tho idea of a jury-fixer being entitled
to mercy is in keeping with tho peculiar
ideas that seem to prevail in court circles
in Omaha, Lincoln and olsowhoro in tho
st'ito and tho utterly absurd Bontenco of
a fine of 81 and an imprisonment of ono
day, is about what might have been ox
" pocted. Judges, juries and lawyors
have apparently como to look upon tho
jury fixer as a regular feature of tho
machinery of tho court. In Omaha and
in this city ho plies his trudo in tho
most open and baro faced manner.
Tho only surprising fact in tho caso of
Norborg is that tho juror who was
offorcd the 8100 was willing to givo in
formation against tho tempter. In
this county most of tho honest citizens
who servo on juries would stick to a
man who olTored them 8100 closer than
a brother. They wouldn't givo him
Tho law imposes a heavy ponolty for
, jury fixing, and tho offender should got
all thut tho luw can givo him,
Tho jury-fixer in Lancaster county,
who is often a respected citizon. lias
besmirched tho ermino of justice, and
mudo a trial by jury in many cases, a
hollow mockery. In legal proceedings
whoro certain interests aro involved or
ccrtuin attorneys aro employed, right
and justice und law and precedent aro
of about as much weight ub a thimble
ful! of smoke. Tho judge Bits on tho
bench in solomn dignity, tho lawyers
' expound tho law from heavy tomes, and
tho jurors blink liko bo many owls, and
tho wholo procetding is a stupendous
farco. For tho jury-fixer has already
gotten in his work. A littlo money bus
changed hands, and tho caso is decided
Could tho secretB of tho courts ot this
county be unfolded tho foulnws that
would como reeking forth would turn
tho stomachs of honest people, and a
trial by jury would bo Been to bo a most
wicked travesty of justice.
It will bo a great day In this county
whon retribution overtakes tho jury
fixer, and right and not money becomes
tho weight in tho scales of justice.
Mayor Weir is as fond of assorting
"my authority" as Is President Ciovo
land. It 1b reported, some say on tho
authority of tho Hon. Jim M alone, that
the mayor will shortly Ibbuu a pronuu
ciamento to tho ciTcct that after a given
dato no person will bo allowed to leave
tho city without first procuring a written
permit signed by himself as mayor. It
is only a question of time, when tho in
tolorablo old troglodlto, who Imagines
as ho sits in his littlo coop on O street,
that ho is a Person of Immense Conse
quonco will require citizens to take out
licenses to breathe.
Thcro have been many attempts to
oriranizo and maintain a livo board of
trado, or commercial or real eBtato ox
change in this city; but dry rot lias
always sot in before anything of real im
portance was accomplished. In Omaha
tho Qommcrcial club, with which John
Utt, formerly of Lincoln, is associated,
is a useful organization that Is very
much alive. It is rendering valuablo
service in advancing the interests of t'm
town and Its success Invites inspection
and emulation. It would not bo a bad
idea for soino of Lincoln's progressive
citizens to investigate tho Omaha Com
mercial club and its workings.
It was a Lincoln lady who told her
husband that she never wished to see
him coming out of a saloon. It is the
samo lady's husband who invariably
stays in tho saloon until tho streets aro
deserted, or quietly makes his oxit
through tho buck door.
Dr. Putton, president of Princeton
college, snya there is "moral activity" in
tho game of foot ball. Dr. Putton 1b a
bluo Presbyterian, und a great scholar,
and if ho says thero is moral activity in
foot bull, it is not for us to say that ho
is mistaken; but wo could not discern
any in tho recent games played in this
city. However, wo will admit there is
somo difTorcnco between tho vuriety of
foot bull exploited at Princeton and tho

York recently, ho immediately mudo tho
acquaintance of tho latest motroiiolituii
equivalent for tho expression, "a corker,"
viz, "crackorjack." To hear Ed spring
this now word from Gotham's prolific
mint, is ono of tho plcusuntcst things in
tho world. "Cruckorjuck" is a good
word, und Mr. Church in adding it to

ranting ami exploding in tragic wrath
or triumph, when repression would bo

still stand against him."
Tho following Is from tho llcratdt
"Last evening ho acted liichclicu, ono
of his best roles, to a somewhat larger
patronugo. This actor is a Kpullst In
art, bo far as his own work Is concerned,
though in these later jours ho makes
very elaborate and handsome produc
tions of his pla)B. His treatment of
scones in "Hlchurd HI." indicate more
than ordinary cure In tho purtKiso to
secure historical accuracy, and the
general effect of the mise en scene, In
cluding the architectural plan and the
costumes worn, is truly flue and ad
mirable. Mr. KeonoJiuB attempted to
make his pictures imposing by tho us'o
of pretty well disciplined numbers, so
that the Impression would bo to a high
degree satisfactory hud it not been Mr,
Kceno's pleasure to emphasize the in
equalities of his own work by the
frailties of his company."
"Several competent poisons have boon
with him for many years, and thero is
promise In tho work of some of tho
younger members; but tho blast of art
that comes from the roar and clamor of
offended lungs is upon tho company.. It
really is dreadful to sit in tho presence
of so much unseemly noise, and witness
tho painful elibrtH of ouch successive
speaker to pump out sound moro
furiously than tho ono who went before.
This Ib the further objectionable for tho
reason that ,tho fault is ono among the
most easily corrected. There aro
occasions when trumpet-touged utter
unco is both appropriate and inspiring;
but tho recurieuco of tho loud-voiced
declamation is altogether too frequent
In tho practice of Mr. Keeuo and his
fellows. As an actor especially fash
ioned and controlled for the dolight of
tho gallery Mr. Keeuo is an unqualified
"If his purpose be to please tho re
fined und interest tho cultured his
methods are erroneous in the extreme.
Ho has amended some of the defects
thut marred his performance in earlier
times, but has not been at pains to
avoid falling into other faults equally
inadmirable, so thut it is difficult to
judgo of his work by tho comparative
plan. It is vexatious to tho critic to
find In a man of such intensity, forco,
suppleness, and fine dramatic energy bo
groat a lack of mental subtlety and
intellectual precision. Considering'the
years during which Mr. Keeuo has been
acting the part of liichurtl uh tho chief
feature of his repertoire, ono thinks
tliatfhis actor should he will-nigli a
perfect exponent and Impersonator of
the character, and resents tho absurdi
ties und extravagances thut disfigure
und in some instances make contemp
tible his performance."
"The mind looso und unioasouing
enough to declaim the following wret
ched line with emphasis on tho
'Crowns got by blood must with
blood be maintained'
is beyond tho cure that critical remon
strance might effect. A great deal that
Mr. Keeno does is worthy of warm praiflo
and sincere commendation; but when
tho note of admiration swells in ono's
mind some unpardonable, irrational
violence on the actor's part shatters it
into irritating discords. Miss Vaders is
a very intelligent actress in everything
oxcept tho uso of her volco. That sho
uses as a bludgeon to murder silence."

It is needless to suy that tho Chicago
critics uro not .alone in their view of

every lurgo city.
If Thomas W. Keeno is as sensitive us
some peoplo would have us believe, he
will never visit Chicago again. For tho

think Keone is wearing tho mantlo of
