VOL.. S NO. 19 LINCOLN, NEBRHSKR, ' SRTURDAY, HPR1L IS. 1893 I II 101 lion. Malt Goring, the w dl known .voting Plattuiouth nttorno.v. who is loading " Iin 1 nice foi" Hen Maker's shoes a- Cult 'tl States district nttorno.v for Nebraska, returned a few du.vs since from the National Capital. II. was vm enthusiastic over what lit" hoard in Washington concerning the sutisfaet'on nuil'tietlve iiipi'olmtinn en tertained bv tho politicians of tlmt city for lion. .1. Sterling Morton and the record he t iimkliii; iw secretary of agriculture, lie .says that Mr. Morton Is wonderfully apt In making new friends by his olHciul act.-, and that it Is the talk of the politicians of all part If- there that lion. Julius Sterling .Morton of Nobrn ka. will certainly he the next democratic nominee for presi dent. That would he a proud day for Nobra-ka and her loyal people on which thev could -co one of her earliest and ablest pioneers ami statesmen heated In the chair of the nation's chief, anil It would be no mean compliment to see him honored with the democratic nom ination, even though lie were unsuc cessful. Nebraska democrats, and thousands of other political creeds, will hope to see Mr. Morton make such a record as will bring about the truth of the prediction. Tin- lire of Monthly evening again demonstrated the fact that there is something radically wrong with the management of the water works. Five minutes, the most valuable In the work of lighting a lire, being the live minutes when It is llrst gaining head way, were absolutely wasted. The lire men were on hand promptly and, had water been obtuli -ible, could easily have saved tho larg part of the prop erty, over half o tho total loss was ellected through the burning f Mohan nn"s barn. And yet if a sttoain had been procurable as soon as the hose was laitl Hnhuuuu's burn anil the llfty-two head of tock therein would never have been barn-d. It Is decidedly exas perating to a well-wisher of the city to see at a critical moment, such as the one referred to. the llremcn standing with an einpt.v no.lo pointed at a variciou- blaze, powerless to tlo aught leu -ccthe destruction go merrily on. It must be a nut ire of gratlllcatiou to ovor.vono who has a fair uuilerstantllng of tlie needs of the public M'hools to know that the proposition to Issue ilOll. IMH) bond-, for the erection of new school buildings was sanctioned by the votes of a sulllclont number to carry it. The II.IMM) school children of this city w 111 be glad to know that better accommoda tions arc to ho accorded them, and more room. The parents of those children ought t.) rejoice to know that the day of usefiilluess for ill-vent Hated and poorly lighted store rooms and school house cellars us school rooms for joung chil dren is nearly over. The hoard of ed ucation may rejoice In seeing Its huj clear to n better anil moie satisfactory administration of Its duties, and It is hoped that It may not forget the Im portant dut,, when It comes to con tracting for these buildings, of getting the best school houses for the least money. It took the people so long to make up their minds that tin; two now buildings proposed were needed that they will hardly he completed ere It will be discovered that more are also needed. There is roaon to believe that another big industiy will soon join the forces that battle for Lincoln's growth and prosperty. Tho recent visit of three millionaire manufactures ot oat meal, as representatives of the wealthy American Miseult company, to inspect the advantages Lincoln possesses as a location foi a cereal mill, was a most satlsfnctorv one to all concerned. The gentlemen were shown about tho eitj by MY. .1. II. McMurtry and Mr. I. M. Maymontl who are ever alert in efforts to secure Mich enterprises, anil were so gratllletl with w nit they saw that they returned to Lincoln after having once taken their departure. They were of fered their choice of several locations. On Tuesday last Mr. McMurtry was called to Chicago to confer with thorn In relation to the project and has not yet returned. An.vonc who has ever rellect -tl upon the subject for a single moment n.u-t know that Lincoln's ad vantages for the manufacture of cereal products are not to In surpassed any where, and should the great cracker tru-t decide to locate a plant in this cit it will undoubtedly be of such I magnitude as woiiiil make it an import ant factor in the development and pro- gres of an, elt,. The cracker trust already owiisoue large plant In Line lu. gentlemen will agico In an elTort to se cure for thooltj the very best and most creditable government within their power and capabilities Their llrst meeting Tuesday afternoon was entirely, harmonious and there was not the slightest friction In their olllclal Inter; course. They hud decided that they would take upon their shoulders none of the sins of the former police admin istration and would begin business anew entirely. All of the matured up-' plications for saloon licenses wt ru grant m! except two, In which the boiuH were not regular. None were denied because of fornierlnfractiousof tlielawi as Honor dealers hat) had more or leis reason therefore to believe that In fractious of the law were not entirely! distasteful to the authorities. TlnJ new hoard announces its determination: to give tlie saloonkeepers every protect tlou to which their license, entitle them In the exclusive sale of liquor an a beverage, and la return will Insist on their observing the law. (Jiving thoj saloonkeepers this protection Involves tho prohibition of indiscriminate soll-J lug tif liquor as a beverage in drug, stores and the sale of Honor in the brothels.

If this be true, It is certainly to lw deplored and the fact should bo deserving of Im mediate and remedial attention. It Is probublj duo to a desire to economize in the matter of fuel. It is to he hoped that when tho new stand-pipe is brought into service (lie pressure may be available ut ull times. and it is reasonable to presume that tho suueeess of the same must have been what has attracted tlie attention of the authorities of the trust to the city as an advantageous locality.

There is every prospect, however, that these able reforms In tho social regulations that will create quite a stir lu certain circles, and the police have been ap prised of its wishes in the matter. The disgraceful condition lu which most of tlie olllclal returns of the late city election came in suggests the idea tlmt the utmost ignorance prevails re garding the requirements of the laws governing elections. There Is no watv by vvhluhlui'oinputoiit men can be kept oil the election boards, because compe tent men are seldom available, having other duties to perform, but City clerk Howeii might prevent much of the con fusion that usually ensues by sending out with the poll books each time min ute Instructions as to the proper method of sealing and sending in the returns.
