OUR suggestions to the chairman of I the board of public works have pro duced the desired effect , at least for a few 1 days. There is moro activity exhibited by the chairman this week than ho lias howu since ho entered the oflico. FIIESIDENT CLEVELAND is a great lover | f pie. It must , therefore , be a great 1 comfort to him to know that his wife is Itvell versed in the intricacies of pie con- I truction. Bho once took a cooking ( school prize for making the best pie. Perhaps it was the knowledge of this fact hat determined the president's choice. OPINIONS are not in accord as to trade I probabilities. Business is in bettor con- IdlUou by far than any man of commer- loial'stauding would have predicted sixty I days ago. There is no upward move- Imentiti prices. The enormous produc- | tlon is steadily absorbed. Prices arc 5rm. Labor is generally fully employed. PUBLICATION is made of the prophecy crunk "Professor" Grim- a , by name - er , who predicts a universal war of scs next year , because , forsooth , Star of Bethlehem , " which calls Blind this way every 815 years , is due in iopeia next year.

G. W. GUILDS , of the Philadelphia er , continues to maintain his roputa- as one of the most liberal men in country , Ho is continually giving y money for worthy objects. Thor r day , in company with Mr. Drexel , presented the National Typographical km , in session at PitUburg , with 600 , nnd now ho is contemplating the tfttion of a free library to the city .Philadelphia. Wo wish that there inora such men as Mr. Childs in country. Ho puts his money where do the most pubho good , Hardly pusses but what ho erects a menu- to his memory in the hearts of his trymen monuments that will re * longer than any towering marble Iiot tlio lanuo Ijo Made. Shall the republican party through the state convention declare its choice for United States senators ? Congressman Weaver , through his bravo organ , volun teers the proposition that the nomination of Van Wyck's successor bo made at Iho coming state convention , and the name of the candidate chosen shall bo printed upon the state ticket in the same manner ns that of o'licr ' candidates 'J ills suggestion , made with the object of ruling Van Wyck from the senatorial race track , well commends ilsolf to the supporters of Senator Van Wyck as well as to his opponents. By all. means let the issue be made and squarely met. Wo believe that VnnVyck is the choice of nine- tenths of the republican party of tlio state , ana they may as well express their will through their delegates in the state convention and direct tlio party man agers to print Van Wyck's name on every republican ticket. The opponents of Senator Van Wyok are of course very confident that they can down him in the convention a great deal bettor than in a legislature. They rely upon the corporation inolhod of packed conventions and bulldozed delegates. Nebraska , however , is no longer a pocket borough for railroads. The now generation ot republicans are Intelligent enough to act without instruc tions from railroad headquarters , und they certainly will not allow the worn out political hacks who have for years misruled the party to dictate its choice for United Slates senator. The rank and file of the repuplicixu parly very seldom are consulted as to their preference In Iho choice of senator. The candidates , heretofore , have never dared lo appeal for a popular endorse ment cillior by convention or at the polls. General Van Wyck is the first senator coming up for ro-cloction who has a record which challenges Impartial dis cussion. Ho has acquired a national rep utation which will bear dissection oven by his worst enemies. It is only right and proper that every man who applies for Van Wyck's position shall present the credonlials on which his claim is based. When these men are ranged side by side with the senior senator in convention ho will lose nothing by a comparison. The republicans of Nebraska cannot discuss senatorial candidates too soon nor too much. The darn horse should have no place in the senatorial race. If Van Wyclc Is to bo retired , they demand a successor who will bo able to represent them If not with as much ability at least with equal firmness nnd integrity. The republicans of Nebraska do not propose in this campaign to follow in the foot steps of the Ohio bourbons when they retired the old Roman Judge Ihurraan to replace him by a coal oil dummy. Corporate monopolies and their henchmen will raise the battle cry of "Anybody to boat Van Wyck , " but the republicans will insist upon somebody instead of a nobody. For our part , wo most decidedly favor Mr. Weaver's plan to nominate the sen ator. If there is any man who commands the respect and confidence of a majority of the party bettor than Van Wyck let him bo named. Wo havon't heard his name whispered yet. Tlio names wo have read about as candidates are prin cipally suggestive of a still hunt and the lightning rod. By all moans lot the committee Include in its call the choice of senator. The local conventions then will declare their pre ference and send delegates in full accord with their choice. Showing Their Hand. The revelations of democratic hostility to civil service reform now making arc not in themselves surprising , nor will those familiar with the character of that party find cause of astonishment , in the methods by which its loaders in congress shall now or hereafter attempt to nullify tlio civil service law. Yet wo find Mr. Dorman B. Eaton addressing labored let ters to Mr. Samuel J. Randall in defense of reform and in deprecation of the ef forts to destroy it , and Mr. Carl Schur/ consuming hours in talking on the same subject before the Massachusetts Reform club , as if these ardent advocates of the reform policy had discovered some unlookcd for nnd startling fact. Certainly no intelligent reader of current political history can have entertained a doubt as to the position of the demo cratic party on this subject. It is im placably opposed to civil service reform , as it is to every other reform which might put the slightest re striction upon its command of the spoils , and it will exhaust every moans and resource , however unfair or unscru pulous , to nullify and defeat suoh reform. The few men prominent in the party not in sympathy with the general sentiment can bo counted on the fingers of two hands , and not ono of them could secure an elective office by democratic votes. The democracy of Ohio thrust Mr. Pondloton aside al the very first oppor tunity aitor-tho passage of the civil ser vice law , and it cnunot bo doubted that Mr. Cleveland would have benn over whelmingly defeated had the democracy of tlio country supposed ho would stand for the observance of the law as ho has done. In tlio last campaign in Now York tha democracy was arrayed in unequivocal opposition to civil service reform , and mainly upon this the full party fatrength was rallied to Hill , who is now among the recognixed leaders In the anti-reform camp , with undoubted aspirations to u higher station which ho hopes to roach by pandering to the spoils-seeking proclivities of the party. The Iromondous pressure Prcsidenl Cleveland - land has had lo contend against is familiar to the country. In view of tills and much more that lias become history , there is nothing surprising in Hie revela tions of democratic hostility to reform now making , It has been suspected for some time Hint Mr. Randalll was in hearty aflillation wilh Iho spoils-aeokers , nnd his attiludo in Iho debate of Wednesday In the house shows that tliu suspicion was well founded. It is consistent with the Machiavollau character of Mr. Randall that ho should bo found now not only antagonizing the president but renounc ing a po.iition which , until recently , ho was believed upon good grounds to hold. The method proposed for nullifying the law is not by direct and straightforward atlack , on the broad and fair ground that it U a principle or policy which ought not to be maintained , but by indirection. It is proposed to make it a condition of the appro priation for this service thai it shall bo Available only when the rules of the civil service commission are so framed as that the names of all applicants for offi cial appointment from any stale , found duly qualified for examination and with out regard to ngc , shall bo sent to the head of n department or oilier officer charged with making an appointment. The object of this pimply is to assure the appolnltnont , in the great majority of cases , of democrats , which such a rule would accomplish. The business of the government would undoubtedly go on just as smoothly nnd efllcicnlly if there was no civil service law , but the method of nulli fying the law proposed by the democrats is not the slraighlforward way of dealing with the mailer , although It is entirely consistent witu the character of that party. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Now Englniul'a Hobby. The roprcsontallvcs of Now England in congress are not disposed to permit pub lic interest in the fisheries controversy lo die out , nnd they lose no opportunity to press this issue upon popular attention , Apart from Iho importance of Iho matter as an international question , and as af fecting the welfare of a largo interest , tlio solicitude of the Now England con gressmen may find further ground of justification in tlio circumstance thai llio Unllod Slalcs is represented in England by a minister whoso predilections are be lieved to bo quite as much English as American , and whose sense of duty may require to bo stimulated oy a strong ex pression of popular sentiment at homo. Furtlicrmorc Mr. Bayard did not at the outset manifest n very hearty concern in tliu issue , and while in fairness credit must bo given him for a recent exhibition of some zeal , certainly no harm cau como from maintaining something of the pres sure which produced it. 'Iho latest expression of Now England Eonliment upon this subject is contained in n bill introduced in tlio house a few days since , the object of which is to pro- led Iho freedom of commercial inlor- courso. It provides that whenever the president shall bo satisfied that Ameri can vessels are denied the privilege of purchasing supplies , bait , and oilier com mercial articles , in any port or ports of any foreign country , ho may by procla mation prohibit the vessels of such coun try , or any designated district , port , col ony , or dependency thereof , or any class of such vessels , from entering American ports or exorcising commercial privileges therein , a violation of such proclamation to work the forfeiture of Iho vessel and the fine and imprisonment of the offend ing olliccr. It is very likely that a meas ure of this kind would have the approval of a largo majority of tlio American poo- pie , for whether the interest bo great or little in the controversy directly affect ing a New England industry , among the people of other sections of the country , a common feeling , equally strong every where in the nation , will approve the policy of protecting American vessels against unjust and iniiirious discrimina tion on the part of other nations or their dependencies , and tlioro is , perhaps , no moro effective way of accomplishing this than by closing our ports to the vessels of any country which shall deny to Amer ican vessels the fullest commercial priv- iliges in its ports. The Festival. The musical festival has opened. The work of the first evening was a pleasant surprise , even to those whose expecta tions were raised Iho highest. Handel's immortal oratorio'of "The Messiah" was presented with a completeness and finish , which few of those who listened to its music had overheard excelled. The per formance was moro than creditable to Omaha. It would have attracted atten tion and generous praise in any musical center. The leading artists needed no introduction and call for no extended comment. Fursch-Madi , Pierce , Huntinglou and Brodcrick have been heard before iu Omaha and the warmth of their reception evidenced the pleasure which they always afford to those who are fortunate enough to listen to the exercise of their talents. But hearty commendation is duo and will not bo withheld from the other participants. The chorus did good and honest work. In several instances it rose to the level of very high artistic excellence. The large orchestra filled well their part , while Mr. Pratt hold his forces well in hand and conducted witli his usual brilliancy nnd faithfulness to the score. One of the most pleasant surprises was the perfect accoustio properties of the exposition building. Every note could bo clearly heard In the most remote corners of tlio structure. Tlio succeeding concerts of the festival should bo patron ised by oven larger audiences than lhat which attended the first. They will well do&orvo the best that the people of Omaha can give them. PKESIDEKT CLEVELAND has resumed his executive functions , and his accomplished young wife lias taken her place in the white house as the "first lady of the land , " with every assurance that filio will honor the exalted social station. Every consideration of propriety demands that the president und his wife bo relieved from further espionage and permitted lo enjoy all the domestic letirement they can secure , without fear thai any Paul Pry of Iho press will give lo Iho world , witli embellishments , every act of their daily lifo not concealed by closed doors and drawn curtains. There has boon "something lee much" of salacious son- salionallsm in the work ot the so-called metropolitan press in connection wilh Iho event of Mr. Cleveland's marriage , nnd whatever may bo thought of the enterprise of those newspapers which have put forth Iho greatest efforts in this line some of them witli a disgustinc disregard of the decencies and proprie ties it is certain that American journal ism has not gained In character or in the respect of people who have regard for the proprieties , by their course. OMAHA wants nnd must have botlcr facilities for travel to and from the slock yards und packing houses of South Omaha. The only way lo got there cheaply at present is by the Union Pa- cillc trains. This means going out at 11 and being penned up until 4 or 0 iu the afternoon. Those who want to go later than 11 a. m , must him a hack or car riage or go on foot. If they desire lo leave the yards before the trains come in from the west they have the same exper ience. When we had no bridge across the Missouri people. traveled .by stage to Council Blutla , at lelut two or throe timosi n day. There was not half as. much travel between Ihcso points M there now is between Omaha and the sloch fyards. , 'Tlip promise Hint the Bolt Line will soon run hourly trains to the stock yards is very consoling for people who can wait ti ycnr or two. Hut meantime it becomes a business problem how to Rot to South Omih.1 without los ing half n day. RIOTING in Ulster is' ' excused In Lon don on the ground that it Is Iho method by which an anxious pdoplo nro protesting again t threatened political wrongs. Rioting in Cork was denounced ns an outbrc\k ! of bloody assassins prolcsllng against a beneficent British rule which has depopulated the counlry , de stroyed industries nnd driven a largo portion of tlio inhabitants to ( loath by siarvolion. It makes a great difference In tlio eyes of the tory landlords whether "outrages" occur in Ulster or Counaught. IT Is not always safe to play poker with llio mayor. This is the conclusion of a number of prominent pokor-playcrs of Vcrmilllon , Ohio. Ex-Mayor Cltllds , of thai town , has filed n petition in court charging three well known and hlchly respectable citizens wilh winning $2,500 from him by mean * of poker , He is pre paring to bring other cases covering his losses for the last year amounting lo $3,000. This Is a cas.o of Iho mayor mak ing llio money go. Mus.

With the ndrcnl of Juno Iho month of roses tlioro comes upon nearly all the tired denizens of cities n longing to leave behind them , for the time being , the crowded streets , with their busy hum , nnd spend their days in shady spots whore they can hoar "Iho moan of doves in immemorial elms and murmcr of in numerable bccsl" Many there are , un fortunately , who on account of their limited means or the arduous character of their work cannot afford much moro rest or rccrcalion Ihan lhat which Is furnished by n family picnic in the parker or by a day's run into llio country or to the seashore , But tlioro are thousands , on Ihe other hand , who are able to taku a vacation of n wnok or moro , thn chief dllnculty that bescU Ihom being lo decide where llipy shall go. It is said of an English nobleman who had for years spent tils summers on thu continent of Europe that he was at last surprised to lind within n few miles of his own homo a little spot which lie had never before scon , but which in natural beauty was superior to any of the vaunted nooks of Franco or Italy. And if many tourists who cross the Allanlic could only bo persuaded lo spend one of their sum mer vacations al homo it is probable lhat they would have u similar experience. The advantages of foreign travel of coming into contact wilh lhq civilization of tlio old world , of wandering through towns nnd cilius rich in historic lorn and fraught with the memories of centuries will , of course , bo readily acknowledged. But It is too often the case that tranMal- laulio Irips are made hurriedly and in an endeavor to crowd lee much Into a very limited period , tlio rosull being thai llio traveler returns with a confused idea of what ho or she has seen , The Tro achs , to which thousands of pilgrims travel yearly from nil lands , were unknown until Sir Waller Scolt's "Lady of tha Lake" told of the fair Ellen , of Fitz James and of Hhoderick Dim. And it would often seem as If our authors in their desire to picture us "centuries vast and deserts idle , rough quarries , rocks and hills , whoso heads touch heaven" forgot that in their own land llicro Is to bo found everything that can awe and charm ; vast inland tideless seas , glassy lakes , forests , primeval moun tains scarrcu by the tempest , valleys laughing in pcrnotual bloom , and in fact , thousands of places thai reflect every mood of nature , loop holes of retreat through which we can peep on the far away world of men , while llio turmoil of Iheir dally lifo and labor conies to us softened by distance and blended with thu song of birds and tliu murmur of hidden brooks. There is , it is good to find , each returning year an increasing desire lo know more of our country , and to make the hot day.s of summer times ot rest and recreation in the best sense of the term. Our own state offers every opportunity for this. Quaint old hamlets and vil lages , the inhabitants of which still retain many of tlio manners and customs which their forefathers brought with them across the sea two hundred years ago ; mountain homos , where lungs choked with the hot air and dust of the cit can drink in the life-giving odor of the piucs , and fertile valleys rich in fruitful orch ards and in waving corn-fields all these invite us. Then , too. within easy dis tance arc long strclchos of yejlow sand washed by Iho restless sea in whoso waters wo can bathe , and from whoso shores wo can look out on nothing but ocean and sky and dream our nays away , like the lotos caters , in pence and iu for- gclfulness of all that so otten chafes the spirit nnd makes lito burdensome. A few weeks spent in this way will do much toward helping us to withstand the pres sure that in these days bears so heavily upon all ; to give tlio tired frame and ox- haustc'J brain rest , nnd to teach us that after all , man's "first , best country ever is at home. " HE WANTED A PASS. Tlio Sad Story of a Decayed Gentle- mnn. Philadelphia News : Captain Loa- bourne refused to admit him to the pres ence of Mayor Smith. Ho was ono of the shabby geulecls , very shabby , indeedbut though his hat was battered and Unify , though his not too clean shirt peeped at the world through his coat sleeves at the elbows , and though his pantaloons did not reach the tops of his buttoiilcss , cracked putont-loathor pumps , his mien was none llio loss lofty ; mistortunowhat ever effect it had on him externally , had not affected him as a man. Tlio busy little captain knew ho was a beggar , and referred him to Detective Allmondingor , whom ho found down stairs. Ho made a profound bow , brusliintr back his hair , cleared ills throat and said : "I am very sorry , indeed , for this in trusion. Accept my humble apology ; but the menial by Ihe portal up-stuirs positively declined to convoy my card to the Mayor , and I was referred to you. " Ho handed the detective llio four of diamonds , on which was written with a burnt match tha numa "J. Q. Duquosno. " " 1 am very much pleased to meet you , Mr. Dewkano , " said the officer , "and trust I may bo able to serve you. " "Thanks. I think you can servo me. To-day the first gentleman in the eternal republic surrenders ills personal freedom by entering the state of wedlock. The nation felicitates him , but the heavens weep , nnd so do I , for 1 have an angel spouse who is bolter on before. But I am one of Stove's earliest friends. " "What Stover" "Excuse the lapsus lingua ) . Ho is now the president of the United States , nnd though wo iibcd to play shinny together , such tamiliurity is unpardonable. " "But what can 1 do for you ? " "Let me explain , Bnforomy eyes I now see a chubby boy , whoso rosy'chcok is dimpled , whoso eyes sparkle brightly. Oh , happy , innocent boyhood I I sou another , a priggish lad , U was myself. I have a dog , of which L am proud. Bui the chubby lad is mischievous , and lies a tin can to the canine's tail , und Iho in telligent brute instead of running off as a vulgar cur would do , quietly squats on his haunches and unties thu knot with ills teeth. But the priggish lad myself Is angry. Ho strike * chubby boy nnd they light. The niiggiiili lad is conquered and yonder chubby uoy , who crowed over a fallen adversary , is now president of Ihe United States , and is to be married to-day. 11 is meet that I , as ono of his oldest acquaintances , hliould bo present at the coromony. I want you to proouro mo a pasa lo Washington , where 1 can arrive in time to wish him1 loy. I am the priggish lad , " "Can't do it , " said the dotoclivu , and Mr. Diuiueauo walked away , saving ho would trstriko" some of the railroad of ficials or steal a ride on a bulfcr.
