CLEVELAND promises a fair and con
servative administration of the affairs
of our nation , and it now behooves us
as loyal citizens and republicans to
lend a cheerful assistance rather than
to do the dog-in-the-manger act ,
prophesy eirors and panicky times.
We hope our grand oM ship of state
may sail on as majestically and as
safely as ever.
CAPT. DANIEL L. PAYNE , the noted
leader of the Oklahoma raiders , is
dead. "While * his death is of course
deplored , intermingled with regrets
conies the satisfactory consciousness
that there will be an era of peace in
the Indian territory , and that quite a
sum of money will be saved the gov
ernment annually in consequence of
the pacific state of the fillibusterer.
THE Nebraska railways , having re
duced their freight rate's on grain ,
could very reasonably and acceptably
supplement that act by reducing their
passenger rates , on all local travel at
least , to three cents per mile. There
seems to be sufficient patronage with
in the state to warrant such a course ,
and the railroads would doubtless be
the gainers by it in the end.
MR. DIGBY BELL , a comedian in
comic opera , named a trained donkey
"Burchard" after the man who has
gained a place in history by his asi
nine stupidity. The young man
Burchard , presumably a son of the
old man , is greatly incensed at the
actor and brays at him lustily. Noth
ing is said as to the manner in winch
the donkey receives the insult. He
certainly has just cause for kicking.
TOMMY NAST is going out on a lee
ture tour pretty soon. The boys
ought not to boycott Tommy. His
failure to draw well in his paper this
fall was because of his change in pol
itics , and that he couldn't help. Maybe
be he'll draw better now when he
gets out from under the thumb of the
Harpers and George "William Curtis
A lecturer that the republicans of the
country do not wish to hear at a" dollar

THE mysterious cattle disease
which is prevailing in different parts
of Nebraska is something that needs
immediate attention. Under the pres
ent condition of affairs we. have no
state veterinary surgeon and no funds
for the investigation and suppression
of epidemics among- live stock. We
would suggest that the next legisla
ture make an appropriation for this
purpose , and that a competent veter
inarian be employed. Nebraska is
now one cf the most important live
stock states in the Union. She stands
fifth on the list , and is credited with
having within her domain 1,770,181
head of cattle. The cattle interests
of this state are altogether too im
portant to be longer neglected so far
as health is concerned. The diseases
of live slock is a subject that should
be carefully investigated in the most
practical manner , so that efficient
remedies may be suggested , but this
cannot be done without assistance
from the state. Bee.
THE following from the Council
Bluffs Nonpareil has the right ring ,
and expresses our views on the ques
tion accurately and clearly. It con
tains a flavor of reason that recom
mends itself to all intelligent unprej
udiced republican minds , and the
position-is righteous one and fair :
It appears to us as very bad policy
for our leading republican journals to
seek , still further , to create depression
in business circles by pretending a
series of evils to await the country
simply because of a change of admin
istration. Of course , for a time , we
may expect close times consequent
upon a change of public policy , but it
seems to us that a country as young
and as vigorous as ours is able to car
ry along change of administration and
still prosper. So we think it bad pol
icy to cry down the times. Better is
it to make the best of what we have.
A democratic administration will.not
be permitted to ruin this country. Its
interests are too great and its people ,
are too intelligent to submit to it.
Bub needlessly alarming ihe country
is not a gooil thing to do. We'should
look on the bright side of things and ,
at least , avoid hastening ou a crisis
which , with a little public confidence
to meet it , might be overcome entirely.
WE append below au editorial
comment on the repeal of the pre
emption act , from the St. Louis Re
publican. The Commissioner and
Secretary of the interior both recom
mend its repeal , and it appears that
the pre-emption act is likely to go at
the present session of Congress :
THE pre-emption law , whose passage
was secured by Benton many years ago ,
was a famous popular measure in its
time ; but it appears that it has ceased
to be of benefit to settlers on th'e public
lands , and been turned into a means of
positive disadvantage" to them. Its
chief feature was that of securing to a
settler , on unsurveyed public lands , the
first right of purchase and entry over
all others when the pre-empted tract
was surveyed. Subsequently the home
stead act was passed , under which a
settler secures a homestead of 160 acres
for the mere cost of entry ; and this
more liberal measure is the one now
most used by actual settlors. But the
pre-emption law is still on the statute-
hook , and is now made use of by cor
porations and individuals for securing a
fraudulent possession ot large tracts of
the public domain. This is a serious
injury to those "who desire to bcconie
actual settlers , for it forces thorn to buy
off the fraudulent claimants before they
can make homestead entries. How ex
tensive is this business may he estima
ted from the statement that 3,500 al
leged fraudulent entries , embracing
500,000 acres , have heen reported anc
are now under consideration in the lane
commissioner's office at Washington
and it is added that "the most valuable
timber lands and large areas of agricul
tural and grazing lands are entered in
fictitious names or by persons employee
for the purpose , and the lands thus
pass into speculative holdings , or hold
ings in large quantities for permanent
control. " In this way not only do the
large cattle corporations secure posses
sion of the choicest and best watered
grazing areas , and enclose them with
wire fences , but other greedy corpora
tions illegally secure possession of val
uable coal and mineral lands , the gov
ernment price of which is $10 to $20 au
acre , at the minimum price of ordinary
lands. As these fraudulent entries are
made under th < ; pre-emption law , which
is thus turned into an agent of wren rte
to 'the very class it .was intended to
benefit , the land commissioner and the
secretary of the interior concur in rec
ommending its repeal.

ED. TRIBUNE : Thinking a few items
from this part of the county might beet
ot interest , I will endeavor to mention ,
among other things , that this is a re
markable busy autumn. Corn husking
is not all finished yet and the crop is
quite as heavy as it was thought to be
earlier in the season. Many fields will
yield fifty bushels per acre , while small
delding fields arc scarce indeed. Ow
ing to the rush of business some have
not as yet spwed their small grain , but
probably the acreage of small grain al
ready sown has been increased over pre-
rious years to some extent.
The schools are now in running order
bringing with them their usual debat
ing seasons , which , fronv what I hear ,
M fair to excel their predecessors.
P/liile east of here the mania for the
lance has seized the young people Avith
i firm gfip , and many enjoyable times
jave been and are ta be.

Banners and stock men , is making a

fortable , as well as more beautiful. Mr.

; er ) did the wood work and Mr. James
Wingatc of the same place is doing the

LONDON'S GAMBLING CLUBS ,
The &uiyn4a Dead Letter How the
Clubs Arc Conducted.
[ London Cor. San "Francisco Chronicle. ]
Theoretically , London as a city is free
from the pest of gambling-houses. So at
least the police would tell you , and so at
least the metropolitan magistrates pro
fess to believe. * As a matter of fact ,
London is fairly honeycombed with
gambling-houses , although these temples
where the votaries of Dame Fortune are
wont to assemble are very different
places from tlw bar-rooms of New York ,
Philadelphia and Chicago. Of all forms
of gambling , betting on horse-racing
finds most favor with the average Eng
lishman.
Tattersalls , at Albert Gate , is the
head center of the betting world. It i.s
hardly a elub in the ordinary stnse of
the word , as the ostensible purpose for
which the place was established was for
the sale of thoroughbred stock , hunters ,
hacks and carriage-horses. For 100
years or more , 1 should say , the Tatter
sails , from sire to son , have carried on
the business of disposing of horses here
by auction , and for many years this es
tablishment in its own particular line
has been the finest in the world. On the
premises at Tattersalls is a large and
well-appointed subscription-room , of
which all the leading members of the
turf , both owners and professional book
makers , are-members.
Members of the Jockey dub , and of
White's , Brooks' , Boodles' , Guards' and
the Travelers' club are eligible for mem
bership , without being balloted for , but
individuals who do not happen to be on
the roll of these aristocratic establish
ments are only eligible for membership
when their finances are known to be in
a flourishing condition , and when tneir
morale and standing on the turf are be
yond cavil or question. Noblemen or
gentlemen , owners of race-horses , or
identified with the sport of racing , have
little or no difficulty in gaining admis
sion , so long as they have never failed
to meet their debts of honor on the turf ,
but the professional operator or book
maker must serve a long apprenticeship
to his calling , and be pronounced on all
hands financially sound by his brothre n
of the book and pencil , before ho can
gain admission into this charmed circle ,
a it re every Monday afternoon a large
gathering takes place , and just as the
prices of stocks and shares are ruled by
the current quotations in Wall street , so
the market status of horses engaged for
coming races is fixed that is to say , if
three to one be taken about a horse- win
ning any coming race , at Tattersalls on
a Monday afternoon , that price is pub
lished in all thb papers and is the guide
for transactions between the public and
the bookmakers all over the country the
next day. Of course , Tattersalls , in as
far as a subscription-room is concerned ,
is neither more nor less than agamblmg-
house conducted on a colossal scale.
Every member of the room , however , is
n mni of honor , and all transactions are
conducted on this basis. When a bet is
made , no matter how largo it may be ,
the backer is never called upon to stake ,
and hence as no money changes hands , I
believe that as the law at present stands
it would be impossible to maintain any
action that might be commenced with
"the view of breaking up tins place , on
the ground that it was maintained
purely for gambling purposes.
It is nothing uncommon for a here tc
be backed at Tattersalls in one after
noon to win $500,000 , and no doubt on
many occasions this sum has been
doubled with regard to the chance of a
single animal. It is only fair to say
that as regards the professional element ,
by which I mean the gambler or book
maker , there are far less defaulters in
proportion to the number of members
than there arc among the stock-brokers
and robbers on the London stock ex
change. Next to Tattersalls , in point of
importance as a betting resort , stands
the Victoria club , in Wellington street ,
Strand. This is again used for no other
purpose besides gambling on horse-rac
ing during the summer , but during the
winter months , when there is no flat-
racing to bet upon , and the frost often
interferes with the sports of steeple-
chasing and hurdle-racing , speculation
also goes on , on the game of billiards.
Although many members of the Vic
toria clui > also belong to Tattersalls , the
standing of the members is not ' nearly
so high as that maintained at 'Albert
Gate. Still none but responsible men
are permitted to become members , but
the professional element here largely
prevails and the upper crust of the turf
is but sparsely represented.
A step lower in the racing world is
the Albert club , an unpretentious estab
lishment in a court oil Fleer , street , and
here the more respectable members of
the smaller fry of professional betters ,
with large numbers , of business men and
tradesmen , make up the membership.
Of the minor clubs devoted to betting ,
perhaps only the Beaufort , in Ratiibone
place , is worth naming as really holding
any sort of standing in the racing \voi Id.
In addition to the clubs 1 have men-
mentioned , there are possibly 100 rooms
in different parts of London digmlied by
the name of clubs and conducted in such
a manner that , although betting progresses -
grosses from midday until midnight
therein , the police have no power to in
terfere because in a humble way they
are conducted on exactly the same lines
with regard to membership and flection
as the first- lass clubs at the west end.
Most , if not all , of these places an ; pro
prietary and the entrance fee is merely
nominal , rarely exceeding $3 annually.
