New Yorkers are bo inmiK ; to BC I that the ex pense of enlightening the world through the torch of Liberty will be considerable and are figuring out where the funds are to come from. OMAHA'S future depends greatly upon the result of the coming elections. The needed changes in the charter are one Important feature to bo considered. Pro hibition IB another. lUisiness men and owners of real estate owe it to themselves fo take an active part in choosing the proper kind of a legislative delegation. Tnr.ur may be money in wheat , wealth la corn , fortunes in mines and heavy profits in stocks , but Omaha is staking her pile on the money in dirt in her neighborhood. The steady advance in the real cxtatemarket \ ( .till maintained , while now people and now enterprises ro doing their best to still further in crease thu demand. Bu3isr.s9 men of Omaha tire vitally interested In securing u live , wide awake nnd aggreasive legislative delegation , Our charter jlotlios are too small. Wo hare outgrown them ami need u new Bull. A conservative/ , but enterprising delegation should bo chosen from Doug las county to superintend the work of amending the charter. CONOUKSSMAN . HiAO.\K : thinks that congress will cettainly puss an interstate conunerno bill at the next session , nnd lie la sanguine that his measure will pre vail , Thu recent decision of the supreme court , which greatly circumscribes the right of thu htates to rcgnlalu the charges of thu railroads for transportation , run. dors more imperative the demand upon congress , for legislation on this subject , ItAimiOUH , the sculptor , was the re cipient of a great popular ovation in Now York on Thursday , and none of the great men present on that memorable occasion was moru worthy of such distinguished consideration. J5iit the crowning honor was conferred on the following daywhcn 6 postolllco in Dakota was named nftor the eminent Alsatian , Hartholtti may now fcol that the Immortality of his fame is Assured. K somewhat qucstionahln statement is made that Mr. flcvulruul gave while in Now York $5,000 to the Hewitt campaign fund , Wore the figuifs reduced by a cipher they would bo more credible , but the probability is that ho arn nothing. 'j'lierc is reason to oelluvo tbnt tlie presi dent is practicing a prudent economy , due | n p.irl to his recognition of the un- curtaintius of the future and in part to the demands of "Hc < l Top" improvements. v. The IlrnBs Hnml nt Lincoln. The grand brass band parade whiclt Church Howe began at Hcatrico was ro- enuetul at Lincoln , The great mounte bank has bras enough in his composi tion to supply all thu bands in the state. It was in accord with the eternal fitness of things for this legislative blackmailer to make n trumpeted appeal to the citi zens of the capital city whom lie has bled at every session of the legislature both as a member and as an "attorney-at-law. " What oiled this Fclf purchased ovation ha * had upon reputable and decent people ple at the state we cannot say. Wo do not bcliovo , however , that Howe has made many converts to his bail cause oven among those who profess to regard it as a calamity to Lincoln for an Omaha man to bo elected to con gress. With his usual demagogy Mr. Howe took occasion to appeal to local prejudice by exhibiting to the as- icmblago at Lincoln a paper containing thu speech madu by the editor of the HIK : when ho accepted his nomination. That spccclipublod by the Journal for the oc casionwas thu essence of Howe's appeal for support from Lancaster county. Now , in what manner does this speech explain away Howo's infamous record ? Are the tcpuhlicans of the lirst district to elect a man who protested agaitiht the canvass of the electoral vote of Nebraska for president of the United Slates becau&e HuMnvater said in his speech that ho pro posed to break up the statu house rings if ho should be elected to the legislature ? Does Host-water's candidacy condone Church Howe's vole for Sam Tilden and Nulse Patrick ? Does it wipe out thu black stain on the clmraulcr of the man who has notoriously used the position of law maker to fill his own pockets t Wo know of course thai all the ring- slors and ringmasters were terribly shockoi' when thoj * learned that there- was a possibility of Hosowater becoming a member of thu state senate , and they naturally make that u pretext for shouting louder for Howe. The sober minded , reputable people and property owners of Lincoln will see no menace in the election of anybody from Douglas county who is not , like Church Howe , bent upon bleeding them under thu pretense - tense that they would bo ruined and the capital would bo removed without his help. An Inspector Needed. Omaha is again suffering from thu diseased meat scare. She had it once before - fore , and there were good grounds for the alarm. There seem to bo generally good grounds at present. It cannot be denied that the nearness of the stock yards in creases the dangers in this respect. Bruised , broken-legged and lump-jawed cattle arc more numerous at such ti largo shipping and distributing point. It is easier to dispose of the carcasses of such animals and more difficult to trace the perpetrators of the crime. Reputable butchers will not countenance the traffic , but there are n number of dealers who are not reputable ) who will not hesitate to increase their profits by an illegitimate transaction. Of course , thu poor arc tbo chief sufferers. The remedies furnished by law are quite inadequate to deal with the ques tion. There are penalties provided and an Inspector named who when called upon 1ms authority to condemn cattle or meat. Uut there is no regularly cm- ployed agent of the law whoso solo busi ness It is to prevent fraud and deception of this character. The revival of the question is timely. An effort should bo made at the next legislature to secure proper authority for stationing an inspector specter of meat at South Omaha. The health of our people demands prompt and ofliciont remedial action. At the Chicago yards cattle of this class are at once disposed of in a manner which pre vents them from falling into the hands of butchers. In Omaha at present , there is nothing to prevent any ot our butchers from peddling the carcasses of diseased animals. The You tin Voters. Workers for the Nemaha fraud are boasting that hu has captured the vote of all the railroad clerks in Omaha , and brag loudly of the Hood of ballots which will pour from the railroad headquarters ou election day to lloat Church Howe safely into a seat in congress. Elections are always more or loss surprises. The present one will prove an astounding one for tlio reckless corruptlonist who imagines that n life-time of dishonesty , treachery and fraud will have no weight in determining the judgment of honest .young men who have not trained long enough with his associates to have be come politically and morally calloused , The risingponorationof young voters is the terror of political shysters. In Brooklyn it overthrow the corrupt ring which had ridden the backs of tax payers for years. In Now York it has curbed the power of Tammany , enforced great changes in the line of municipal reform , and worked n startling revolution in the character of nominees. Its ambitions and hopes are for the present and future. There is whore the political work of our young men lies , ami they know it. They have sensibly left to party hacks the ' 'pointing with pride , " and have concerned them selves with assuring good government for now and horenf tor , The young vote holds In its hands the preservation or the destruction of existing parties. Sensible that honesty must win in the long run , and Unit party organizations are only valuable as expressions of honest party sentiment , they are working to perpetuate - ate good government through party , by protesting against dishonest parly methods and dishonest ptrty candidates. The medicine of defeat is not a picnsani one , but It is sometimes the only effective remedy. Acquiescence in the nomina tion of corrupt men is endorsement of the corrupt moans by which tlioy have secured their nominations , Church Howe's whole career , commercial and po litical , is BO disreputable , so flagrant in its violations of decency , honor.common hon esty and plighted faith that no honorable and high minded young man , In railroad headquarters or elsewhere , ought to have u moment's hesitancy as to his duty at the. coming election. The confidence that republicans will endorse any can- didatq , no matter what his character or record , who has the brand of n conven tion on his canvass , should bo rudely broken onca and for all. With Church Howo'a defeat the corrupt tricksters who have foisted this man upon the republi cans of the First district will learn the lessen that the party lash may bo cracked in vain , nnd that independence of indi vidual conscience is sometimes superior to fcnr of the displeasure of political hacks. I in pro vine Architecture. One of the marks of Omaha's growth is the general Improvement notcil on every hand In the character of the new buildings which are ri ing on our busi ness and residence stiects. With in creasing wealth and enhanced property values , our citizens have awakened to a realization of tlio advantages of archi tectural symmetry and have learned that ugliness and convenience are Niiot neces sarily synonymous when applied to building. They have discovered that , other things being equal , a sightly busi ness block will command a bettor class of tenants and a longer rent roll , nnd that well built and attractive resiliences are rarely vacant of occupants. Those too , who are ambitious for name , ami a reputation lor enterprise see thai an ornate and symmetrical building , be it mod for purposes of trade or as a home , is a standing advortlsomcntof the ownur. Architecture is a progressive art. It Is based on certain fundamental laws , but in every ago it adapts itself to the wants and tendencies of the timos. When Omaha was a small and isolated town , when lumber was dear and stone out of the question for building purposes , the question was chielly one of shelter and comfort. Modern homes on city models could.not bo attempted , Business blocks of handsome proportions wore not re quired ami were not attempted , Without a system of water works nnd sewerage , the elevator played no part in the demands of tenants. The third story was a loft and a fourth would have found few ton- ants. The style of architecture for busi ness houses has been everywhere revolt- tiom/.ed by the elevator itnd over since the elevator has been practical in Omaha the revolution has been steadily progres sing in our midst. 'Ihut simple vertical railroad makes it possible to build cities in the air and place the seventh and eighth story on a level with the second as far as case of approach is concerned , And this single change has brought into use new architectural forms for which without it there would have been no de mand. A Brotherhood to he Kimtlatctl. The annual convention of the Brother hood of Locomotive Engineers in New York last week was m all respects a model assemblage of workmgmon. It was notable for the character and intelli gence' of its members , for its freedom from wrangling , disorder and acrimoni ous disputation , and for the conservatism and wisdom of its expressions and action. } t was a body the presence of which in any community would bu regarded with favor , because by its judicious policy it has earned and commands the public re spect and confidence. Kvcry word spoken by the distinguished gentlemen who par ticipated in welcoming the convention to New York , in compliment and commend ation of the organization , was sincerely meant and was entirely just. It is agreeable and useful to refer to this admirable organization , because it presents an example of the highest form of labor union , ami one which it is prac ticable for all intelligent and self-respect ing workingmen to emulate.Its ex istence and the excellent work it has accomplished in elevating the char acter and capacity of its members fur nish convincing evidence , admitted by all candid men , that labor orgai/.ations , when founded and conducted on wise and just principles , instead of menacing may bo made to conserve tlio public wel fare. From the beginning the work of tlio Brotherhood has been to uplruld the fraternity of locomotive engineers , and those who remember what thu character of the average engineer was twenty-five years ago know how well and thoroughly that work lias been accomplished. Said Mr , Dopuw , the president of the New York Central , in addressing the late con vention : "Tho man of the old time was rather a rough chap and swore hard. Ho kept a whisky bottle , too , to steady his nerves , but there is none of that now. The men of to-day need no whisky to give them nerve. " The engineer of to-day is a sober , solf-rcspccting citizen , witi | a full sense of the great responsi bility that rests upon him.lie has pride in his duty and conscience in performing it. Ho believes in the eternal npplica tion of the principles which are the mot toes of the Brotherhood , "Sobriety and Truth , " " .Justice and Morality , " "De fense and Defiance , " "Keason , not Ario- lenee. " Ho feels honored in being si member of a fraternity which is a power not for warfare - faro , or aggression , or destruc tion , but for maintaining and promoting in all proper ways the just rights of its members , while at the same time holding each to the full performance of his obli gation as an employe , and ho is over so licitous to maintain his relations with the organization unimpaired. This gen eral and self-discipline required by the brotherhood , this fusion of a feeling of pride and honor among thu men , have made the organization what it now is , the model labor union of the world , res pected and commended by everybody. It is practicable for workingmen in nearly every department of labor to emu late the example of this excellent organi zation , and if over they shall do so from that time will cease all opposition to la bor unions , which now makes its most forcible argument not against organiza tion , which In this land is an inalienable right , but agnjnst the spirit and aims which too often are permitted to control such combinations. A Society Matter , The time is nearly at bund when it will bo necessary to muTango , to some ex tent at leus'l , the social lines at Washing ton , or to put the matter more accurately , perhaps , to readjust the relations of in dividuals within established lines , I1 or it innst bu understood that there are rec ognized rules and time-Honored princi ples regulating the social status at Wash ington , and while these have bometimes been rudely , or oven ruthlessly , dis turbed by some innovator who thought them undemocratic and needing reform , it has very rarely happened that an en tire social season has. passed without their having ultimately asserted them selves , Some. , perhaps most .of them , have descended from "way back,1' ' bring- ing-with thc.m the high and almost sacred endorsement of tlio superb and brilliant women who composed' and fashioned the social fubrio of the national 'capital at an iwrly tira of the republic. Time has attested the fiir-reachlng wisdom and discriminating sagacity of the "first ladles of the land" in the dayd of Adams , nnd Madison and Monroe , quite as surely as it has domonstrntiid that of the states men and political sages of those periods , nnd it is ha.rdly lessi of a saerilogo to Interfere with the 'judgments and decrees of the erie ) than with the o of the other. It has nevertheless sometimes happened that such intcrfe.rciico was at tempted , and oven for n period proved suc6essfiil. The social commotion which signalized the adm\nisjratlon \ of 'Presi dent Jackson was a ipo.Vt memorable fea ture of that eventful and bustling period , and was really thu toughest and least successful .struggle in. wllich that Indom itable old hero bvor chgiigcd. At a later time most of the traditional regulations were restored , and even during the ie- bolllon era , when the processes of up heaval and overthrow were felt in almost every direction , the lime-honored social regulations at Washington remained nearly intact. Thu hist innovation was mndo uy Miss Hose Kli/.abcth Cleveland , when she as sumed the role of the "lirst Indy , " but not with very serious consequences. There was for a short time danucr that the entire social fabric of tin- national capital would bo thrown Into chaos by Iho "reforms" which ( lie new administra tion of the president's accomplished but somewhat erratic sister projected , but so ciety speedily and judiciously decided that it might properly makesome conces sion to tlio abounding "freshness" of thn new regime and settled down to an uncomplaining acceptance of the latest decree , quite sure that the sacrilico could bo only temporary. It wa's moreover the better satisfied to do tins since there was a serious question respecting the right of the president's sister , in charge of the do mestic duties of the white honso as a matter of convenience , to determine what should bo the proper thing socially , and those who entertained this doubt could very easily regard any concession they might make as wholly informal and acquit themselves of having really sur rendered any principle. There was , however , ample precedent for Miss Cleveland's right in the matter , and she is perhaps entitled to some commenda tion for the spirit and pluck with which she insisted upon its recognition. Now this interesting , and tar more than most people away from Washington can understand , really important matter , is to be handled and managed by Mrs. Frances Cleveland , who brings to thu task an unquestionable title as the "first lady of tlio land , " and therefore nn undoubted - doubted right as a social arbiter. There has really been no indication yet as to what "policy" Mrs. Cleveland may adopt , though it appears she has mani fested personal preferences that arc noted as probably designating those who will bo the chief Vocipionts of her favor. In a gduurni way it may bo presumed tiat | she will nol make any very..radical departures. Her tendencies appear to be conserva tive , and not at all iif 'the' dircction of re forms that could be/accomplished / , if at all , only by a good 'ijcal , of conflict. It appears to bo a jusl } impression of Mrs. Cleveland that her chief aim will bo to render hernolf popular , 'for ' which pho possesses ample griec ] and accomplish ments , and an urgent motive to which will bo her undoubted .desire to promote the popularity also of * the president. Very few people , wo Suppose ; apprehend how much is possible to the wife of the president in Ibis latter direction. That Mrs. Cleveland intuitively understands what she may accomplish in leading people to think well of hnr husband there is excellent reason to believe , notwith standing the fact that she declined to assist the Virginians in making a society heroine of Miss Winnie Davis. In the few examples she has given of her social graces and art , Mrs. Cleveland has ap peared to great advantage and won merited commendation. She conforms easily and unaffectedly to every situa tion , and evidently has her full share of womanly discrimina tion and tact. It is not doubted that she has as well some ambi tion , and would not be at all averse to another presidential term for Mr. Cleve land. To this end , therefore , whatever she can contribute in the way of social influence will not bo withheld. Respecting those who are likely to have the personal preference of Mrs , Cleveland , it is said she is especially par tial to Mrs Manning , whom she met for the first time on her wedding day , on which occasion the wife of the secretary of the treasury showed the bride of the president much greater attention and af fection than did any of the other ladies of the cabinet. The attachment between the president and the secretary gives a "touch of nature" to this alliliation be tween their wives. There Is moreover a similarity in the tastes of the two ladies which draws thorn together as kindred spirits. It is not surprising to read that the other cabinet ladies are a little jeal ous of Mrs. Manning. Mrs. Whitney , wife of the secretary of the navy , and a social leaner , appears to bo second in favor , She Is a daughter of Senator Payne , of Ohio , and is in all respects a charming lady. Last winter her opulent brother , Colonel Oliver II. Payne , pre sented her with half a million dollars to bo used entirely for society purposes. Mrs , Vilas and Mrs. hndicott am necessarily ex cluded , by reason of thuin ago , from the ardent friendship bestowed upon the younger ladles of thp-cnblnct by the young mistress of thqf\\ bite House. It I s ! only n short month uutiUsooluty in the national capital will ! ibngm to tnku on now life , and there isrproiuisn that thu social season , though , brief , will be spir ited and eventful. , ( , < Von Mnnnfolile's Circular.

Respectfully ymil's , .iKs-niAVmi.i : , Clinlrmnn Doinocintlc Committee. Tin : report that a movement has been inaugurated in Mexico to establish a diuUt- lorship , with Diaz at Its head , is not en tirely incredible when one reflects upon the fickle character and fluctuating tem per of Iho Mexican people. It is indeed ralher remarkable that the republican system has been maintained so long , though in fact the government of Mexico can hardly bo called the popular or demo cratic form. The will of the people is but indirectly expressed in the creation of publicoflicials , and the masses are very thoroughly dominated by tlio poli ticians. Furthermore , nearly all power is ccntrnli/cd in the general government , which exercises its authority , backed by ample means for enforcing it , with an arbitrary will that is decidedly unropub- Mean in character. Indeed , the existing government i.s practically a dictatorship in its operation , so that the change said to be projected would bo little more than ono of designation , and probably would ' not materially lessen the 'popular Inllu- enco in the government. Still it would doubtless bo a serious mistake as affect ing the political relations of Mexico on this continent. That country will prob ably continue to enjoy consideration and immunity as a republic which would bu less likely to bo givim it under another form of government. Evnitv candidate on the Douglas county legislative ticket nominated by a republican convention has expressed himself - -self as unalterably opposed to the sub mission of a prohibitory amendmont. The grounds for their opposition are sound. They insist that the right of sub mission means the right to attempt pro hibition if a prohibitory amendment car ries. They affirm that no collection of separate communities has any right to saddle a police measure upon other com munitieswhercjit cannot bo enforced nnd where its non-enforcement means un bridled license in liquor selling and the loss of a largo revenue for Iho support of the public schools. They point to the results of prohibition in every state where it has been attempted and contrast them with the operation of high license and local option as carried on in Ne braska. The republican nominees for the legislature from Douglas county will vote and work against the folly of prohi bition. As members of the majority party , their influence will be far greater than that which could bu exorcised by democrats in their places. TJIU county hospital proposition should b'i borne in mind by every voter on Tuesday. A vote for the proposition means relief for tin ; sick and destitute ! and a lefugo for the helpless nnd de mented. The vote should be unanimous in its favor. POINTS. n. A.

"Tin : death of Mrs. A. T. Stownrt. " snld a New Yoilc mcichant , who Is visiting in Omnhn , "natiirnlly brings up the question of the disposition ol herfoi tune. Hot propnity Is variously estimated from twenty to sixty millions. It will now , I presume , fiimlh pass Into the hands of Judge Henry M , Hi ) , ton. It will bo rememboiod that Immedi ately after Mr. Stewart's death , Airs. Stownrt tiansferred to Judge Hilton for the nominal sum of Sl.OOO.COOnil her light , title and Inter est to the vast St-WArt stores , mills , fnctorlos nnd warehouses. This loft to Mrs. Steunit thn personal propuity of stocks , bonds , bank accounts , the I'leirimt residence on Filth avenue , with Its million dollar nit gallery , the vast real estate pos sessions In Cnrdcn City , the Homo tor Women on Park avenue , and a number of houses in Now Yoik then variously estimated to bo woitli irom fifteen to seventeen millions. Judge Hilton , who had ! miatlatcd himself Into Mr. Stewart's confidence by his shiewd ability as n pettifogging lawyer and his merciless seveilty In extolling tents and collecting bills , now became the confidential adviser of Mrs. Stewart. From time to time he received largo presents from the widow of the late merchant prince. Transfers of property to him from Mrs , Stownrt have been more numerous tlmn the public has had any Idea of. Judge Hilton Is to-dny ono of the wealthiest of Now York's retired merchants , and neatly every penny of his Immense tot tune has boon mndo out of the Stowait estate. 1 Imnglne that when the estnte of Mis , Stewait is finally settled up , It will bo discovered tlmt Hilton's leech-lilvu piocesscs have left very llttlu for the heir * , Mis.

Mr. Foster took occasion to reply to the ISuirnlo Couiler's criticisms , based on the casting of Mile. Lnblnchc ns Jteithn In "The Mnld of Honor , " Instead of Miss Huntlngton. Mr. Foster , among other things , snld that Miss Huutlngton envies i P P Mile. Lnblnch'i for the great reputation the hitter enjoys , nnd ho accused Miss Huntington - ton of Incivility.
