To the Editor of Tim Uii. Why don't you hoist the republican state ticket in the editorial columns of your daily ? A STAI.WAHT. . The custom of printing the party ticket at the head of the editorial col umns is no longer in vogue among the loading dailies of the country oven in national campaign years. The po litic.-xl views of every metropolitan pa per nra well known , and it is tacitly understood that each party supports its party candidates unless it expressly opposes them. The BEE is a republican - * can paper. It has vigorously sup ported the republican ticket in every national campaign , and , with the ex ception of Valentino and Cams , every republican candidate on every state ' ticket ninco it was founded. * 'In ' the present campaign the BKK "has pxprossea .satisfaction with the re- nomination of Judge Maxwell , but , in view of the fact that ho is as well known as any public man in Nebras ka , wo did not doom it necessary to enlarge upon , his past history or " /ilia record. The amo is true 'oj the Republican candidates for Regents of the University. Inasmuch as the Democratic ! nomination of competitors is a moro matter of form and the only , , question is ono of majorities , anactivo - ' campaign on behalf of these candidates - / dates is not necessary. We have just received a circular letter from the chairman of the Re publican State Committee , and as a matter of information for the guid ance of Republican electors , wo call attention to the fact that the full names of our candidates , as they should appear on the local tickets , * * ' ' are aa folio we : * * , , / For Judge of the Supreme Court , * ' * * ' SAMUEL MAXWELL. _ , .For Regents of the University of Ne- n \ braska , LEBBEUSB.

At a special meeting hold by the city council of Fremont , Friday night , the following communication was sub mitted and the request embodied therein promptly granted ! FREMONT , Neb. , Oct. 1-1 th , ' 81. To th Honor btc Mayor m ) Council of the City of rrimont : . OKNTLKMEN : I am inslructod by the Lincoln t Fremont railway company to withdraw the proposition to build a line of railroid from Lincoln to Fre mont , via Wahoo , in Snundors county. Al a recent election held in the precincts > f Saunders county through which it was proposed to build the Lincoln & Fremont - mont Railroad , the people refused to give the aid required ; although tljii action on their part will cause some delay and necessitate a change of the present survey , making the road bo- Ueon Lincoln and Fremont about two and n half miles shorter , yet I am confident that with a reasonable amount of nid from your city , the road will unquestionably bo built within the next year. I therefore rcopcctfully ask that you repeal the oulinuncc sub mitting to the legal voters of Fnsmont the question of issuing bonds to the amount of $35,000 , to bo voted on the 17th of the present month , and hope to bo able at an early day to submit a proposition more favorable to the in terests of the people of your city. Very respectfully , H. B. GALBV. Scc'y of the L. & F. R. R. This is a specimen brick of bulldoze and blackmail , to which railroad con struction ring * always resort when the people refuse to mortgage their homes to them as a bonus for their benevolent enterprises. So the Lin coln fc Fremont railroad project is temporarily laid on the shelf to afford the onginecra time for shortening the line two and n half miles , andtholcgal voters of Fremont , who wore so anxi ous to vote a $35,000 mortgage on themselves , this very week will have to forego that pleasure for a few months longer. Tin's is indeed a very sad turn of affairs but the people of Lancaster , Dodge and Saundera derive consolation in the assurance that the 'road ' will bo short- onrd two and a half miles. Down in Saundora county it in well understood where this short cut in Mr. Galoy'fl road is to bo made , .Tmt before the recent bond election in datmd&'ra county , Iho gentle bulldo- sers of the road exhibited a little ma i lo the merchants and property own- jrs ofVahoo , in a confidential way , which represented the road ns run- ling two and a half miles cast of the ; own and they 'were incidentally yarned that' the road would leave iVahoo two and a half miles from the Jincohvand Fremont linoif the bonds voro voted down. Those throats did not seem to have ho desired effect on the stubborn rVahoosiors , and Mr. Qaloy now pro- > osos to whip them in by the sham vithdrawal of the proposition at Fro * nont , coupled with the threat of ihortoning the linotwo , and a half nilos. In thia game of blackmail and > ulldozo , the construction ring of the jincoln and Fremont abort line is fol- owing closely in the footpaths of the xedit mobilier ringstors , that built ho trunk lines across the continent. Fhoso highwaymen commanded the icoplo of every town along their line o hold up their hands and deliver up ho deeds for their depot grounds md mortgages upon their homes , indor the .throat of having the road located a few miles on ono lido with a rival town to chock their growth and destroy their prosperity , tt was just by such a damning game if blackmail that Omaha and Douglas sounty were robbed of nearly $1,000- )00 , and the proceeds of our bonds ivero finally used to build an elegant jnion depot at Council BlufTd , The mine infamous tactics were played apon the people of Columbus by Jay 3ould , but the rise in the Platte and Loup rivers last sprint ? compelled the [ Jnion Pacific to civo up their ichcmo of strangling Columbus. Phis open threat to leave Wahoo two and a half miles west of the proposed road will , however , hardly produce the desired effect. Wahoo la already n flourishing county scat and , no one- horse railroad can destroy that grow ing and prosperous town by shorten ing its line two miles and a half. The main object of the capitalists who propose to operate this now road lifter the construction , ring has squeezed 8125,000 out of the counties through which it is to pats , is to com pute with existing roads for local traffic. They can only compote BUG- jossfully by building their road through the most important local trade centers in the country trav- orsod. If it is true that this road will become an extension of the Chicago md Northwestern and Elknorn Val ley line , then the road is bound to bo built without a dollar of subsidy. If the road is a moro local line , projected by Galov Fi * " " " " ' ' ' & Co. as a opocu- road will note * o rival lines 'dies asked if built , I have sot fire to the Antelope county court house , to cover a defalcation , nmnicd themselves at West Point last week by burning a traveling agent of the BKR in effigy. It was eminently in accord with the eternal fitness of things for an export incendiary , who , if ho had his deserts , would to-day bo wearing a zebra suit , to take such delimit In effigy burning , It is also o'.ninontly proper that embezzlers am1 , firo-fionds should assume the chair.pjonship of n man who swindled homesteaders and robbed the tax payers of this state1 by lobbying a back pay steal of 81,800 , through the 'egislaturo for services ho never performed. THE IRISH SITUATION. No end need any longer accuse Sir , Gladstone's ministry of a polioy of masterly inactivity towards Ireland. TJio blow ittruck nt the Land Lcnguo by the arrest of Parnoll has boon fol lowed by the roarre.it of Dillon and imprisonment of Quinn , Sexton and Iloaley , nil leaders in the land move ment. The troops throughout Ire land are under arms. Every garrison has been reinforced. The principal offensive points nro covered by loaded cannon and armed mon of war patrol the colats nnd protect the harbora. Ireland is in a * state of siege , garrisoned - od by a force against which opposition is dangerous and resistance certain dcatb. Mr. Forstor , under whoso depart' mont the supervision of Irish attain falls , haa announced his intention o : forcing the land league into subjcc tion to the law at all hazards. As af fairs have recently stood throughou Ireland , the authority of the crown has been practically nullified and th law of the league has been the enl ; authority respected or regarded by the Irish people. According to the view taken of the matter by the con Borvativo party and finally forced for adoption upon the cabinet , tholandbil which coat the ministerial party forty whig votes and the son-ices of three of their leaden , was in process of ab rogation through the organization o which Mr. Parnell is the head , Lib erty of speech had degenerated into license and contempt of the Jaw into opposition to the crown. Under the cloak of land rotorm a movement was in progress for complete separation from England , and the consequent disintegration of the British Empire. With those ehaigos ringing in their oars the ministry determined to save themselves from , party disaffection by changing their policy to one 9f bold aggression , and dealing i powerful blow at the Land League through the arrest of its most influential loader * . The ex tension of the coercion act to counties not already included under the provl sions , the strengthening of the BO ! diery and the reinforcement of the garrisons were the 'natural consequences quences having for their object the repression prossion of excitement and the over awing of the people. Mr. Gladsono having ontrered upon his polioy of coercion will bo forced to carry it out at all hazards. It may bo us most of the English journals Bcem to consider it , a political nocscsty. Experience will alone prove whether it ia not also a grand politica blunder. Mr , Qladston haa in times past proved himself able to resist popular clamor in pursuing a policy which ho considered best for the in terests of the nation. Ho showed that ho lost liitlo of this trait of character , so rare in modern states men , when ho fought the late land bill through a lukewarm .house . of commons and a violently antagonistic peerage. It ia a serious question whether in the present instance ho has not yielded to a clamor which would have died away when the true aims of the men against whom it waa directed had been ascertained. The loaders of the Land league are in prison , but the Land league still remains , its organization unbroken , its ranks apparently unshaken. Other mon have stopped into the positions vacated by 1'nrnoll and Dillon , by Sexton , Healy and Quinn. Ireland may bo temporarily cowed , but no DUO believes that she is subdued. TJio Qjadstono ministry may gain a few rotes in Whig boroughs , but the Radical element is scarcely likely to bo strengthened by such a summary md high-handed exercise of authority IB is now in progress. And with the certain extension of the franchise to the poorer classes , a reaction against jovornment by brute force will cer tainly make itself manifest at the polio in a manner which will more seriously detract from the strength of the liberal party than can bo sot off by any gains secured through a policy backed up by bayonoU and enforced by the suspension of the great safe guards of constitutional law and equity. When the democratic party in con vention assembled f ila to awaken en thusiasm by retailing the well worn "principlea" of itstim6 honoredorgan- iration it falls back upon sheer cheek fill out their platforms. The late ntion that assembled at Albany ntion to this rule in its following astonishing ' ' and immo- * r-routo treasury , and the vigorous prosecution already'too long delayed of all par ticipants , both high and low , in these pravo crimes , whereby the moneys of the people were stolen from the treas ury , and plunderers were made to provide - vide a corruption fund which was used to carry the latt presidential election for the republican party. Every democrat who voted for this resolution know perfectly well that a thorough and immediate investigation of the "star routes" was begun within a week after the inauguration of Presi dent Garfiold. They were aware that this investigation was begun by a re publican postmaster general , aided by a republican attorney general and sanctioned by a republican cabinet and president. They know that un- drr the greatest difficulties this inves tigation han been vigorously prose cuted for seven months until the cases are now ready for trial with a mass of evidence sufficient to convict the offenders. They also know , though they probably did not care to reflect very long upon the fact that the "star routea. " were Investigated by a Dome cratio House of Representatives in two auccossivo sessions , and that all parties accused were triumphantly ac quitted. In the view of such facta it is the boldest hypocrisy for the Demo crats to call for a thorough and immediate - mediate investigation of the star route frauds. They will certainly fail in making any political capital out of auch a display of cheeky assump tion. It haa always fallen to the aharo pf tno Republican party , not only to expose the frauda of Demo cratic administrations , but the failings of their own , and that they have done both thoroughly , ia ono of their groat- cat claims on public confidence. Titu'rotirement of Secretary Kirk- wood from the Interior department ia to bo regretted if on no other grounds , because the appointment of a successor may prevent the carrying out of the plans which ho had mapped out for a rigid investigation into its various offices. This ia particularly the case with the land office , which is in need of a thorough overhauling , and to which Secretary Kirkwood was about to direct his attention , The pension office was also under inspec tion , but the general opinion is that the great leakage in thia bureau of the in terior department can only bo met by a closer inspection of the methods of making up claims by ex parts testi mony throughout the country. In the Indian 'bureau ' , however , whore' Mr. Kirkwood haa had an op portunity of acting , aSairs have been administered with a dispatch and suc cess which is highly creditable to its head. " , The Ponca difficulty , over which the department and a band of eastern fanatics had been fight ing for nearly two years , has been settled to the satisfaction of all parties ascertained. The Northern Cheyenne trouble has been arranged by the transfer of the band to the Sioux country and the removal of the Utos has been accomplished without bloodshed or further parley. For a department as notoriously slow in its oporationa as the Interior de partment these achievements in such a limited space of time aa floven montha are quite remarkable and Mr. Kirkwood must receive the credit of an energetic administration of affairs. It is to bo hoped that his successor will catch some of the spirit of the old Iowa war horse and carry out tlio re forms contemplated by Mr. Kirkwood in other bureaus which are seriously in need of imtncdiato attention. THIS recent rise in confederate bonds in Europe la ncoountcd for by the Now Orleans Democrat by the state ment that theft Will soon bo applied to their payment $7,000,000 deposited by the Confederate government in the Bank of England before the war. According to the Democrat this sum has been drawing interest all the time , and Secretary Scward tried to draw the money from the bank but failed. This story is sheer nonsense. There are no good grounds for the state ment that any ouch jmm was over de posited by Confederate . govern ment , and less grounds for making out on behalf of the bondholders any valid claim for the amount if it was in existence. The fact that at the outsat of the rebellion the Confeder ate government stole ton times this sum from the United Slatoa makes any disposal ot the remnants of their public plunder the receiving of stolen property It should bo handed over to our government , if in existence , and used to pay pensions to the sol diora and widows of mon who lost their lives in the rebellion. The hold- era of the bogus bonds have no claim whatever on the amount. Now that the star route business ia an the doolino , some of the "noble : harity" benefactors will besiege Congress with schemes for subsidizing : ostly wagon roads through the ro- jions inhabited by coyotes. A new wagon road is projected from Fart Washakio to the Yellowstone park rvliichtho projectors are willing to : oiutruct for the trifling sum of $50- XX ) . Inasmuch ai Congress has al ready appropriated a good many mil- ions in public lands to construct rail- oads into Montana through that re- lion , and these railroads are now bo ng vigorously pushed- there will hardly bo any pressing necessity of voting 850,000 for a single wagon road from Fort Wasliakio to the Yellowstone - lowstono park. Jf such an appropria tion was made tliij winter it would take another appropriation of 8100- 000 the very next session to keep the road in repair THK Now York election more than that of any other state is likely to show the effects of the "off year" in politics. The first day's registration in Now York city nnd Brooklyn was less than half of that on the first day of last year , and 3,000 less than on the .first diy of 1870.
