Warty. " Harvard' * Annlvcrnnry To-day the litllo oily of Mass. , whoso chief pride and honor is the fact that it Is the scat of Harvard uni versity , is thronged by the alumni of the college and the distinguished giifst * \\lio \vill participate to-morrow in the 2SOlh anniversary of the founding of Harvard. The cvontis one of far-reaching interest , for till over t'io ' land there are men to whom it will bring cherished memories , while to all people who have any concern for the cause and piojrrcss of education in this country it will suggest interesting and instructive reileclions regarding the vast work and inestimable service that Harvard has performed. It Is the oldest of American college , and dottbtlesi do- iorvcs to bo credited with having done more for thn cause of education than any other of our chief institutions of learn ing. Certainly it can bo claimed for It that It is not second to any other in the character of the educators it has sent out to enlighten the world and extern ! the principles and precepts which they there acquired , and equally does it take a fore most rank with rcipcot lo llio number , wortli and tnihtotico of the men whom It lias given to the professions , to science and art , to religion , and to politics. It is a great and grand army of which Har vard is the alma mater. It Is to bo said also of Harvard that it is distinguished in having been the most progressive of the great American col leges. It has boon remarked that it is the youth of Harvard even more than its ago which makes the coming rolobratiou an event of national importance. It has not hesitated to push out in directions which the traditional conservatism of the other colleges shunned , and to under take experiments whleh they had not the courage to venture , for the most part with results that justified the action. In ono important respect it lias set a great example in becoming avowedly and actually non-sectarian , while the results of its policy of elective ro-o.irch have been so satisfactory that other colleges are falling into line , giving promise that in a few years this system will have be come general. Another distinctive char acteristic of Harvard is its popular form of government. Every alumnus of the academic department becomes , on gain ing years ot discretion , a factor in the governing machinery of the university , a policy which is not favorable to fossiliza- tion. Still another claim In behalf of Harvard is the fact that it has never had recourse to any questionable expe dients to increase its apparent pros perity , but in its business management has always adhered to the highest stand ards. There was recently some sharp criticism of tlio class distinctions per mitted and the favor shown or tlio tolera tion given to aristocratic pretension and lavish expenditure among the students , but it was sullicieut to call attention to these faults to have them corrected. To-morrow the achievements and the glory of Harvard , which are so much a part of all that has been accomplished in this land m the cause of education , will be told by orator and poet , and surely their gilts could not bo moro worthily employed. Harvard merits all Iho praise and honor that can be given it. l < nck of Prensiirc. Friday evening's hro wa burning vig orously before tlio water mains tnct tlio demands of the occasion. At tlio very outset there was the old complaint of "lack of pressure. ' ' Fifteen minutes of precious time was lost before tlio pres sure was "at full head. " Then the other extreme was reached in burstcd hose. The deficiencies of Iho diroet pressure system wore never more clearly shown. Omaha defeated the Holly job through the bitter light made by this paper and saved herself nearly half a million of dollars on the contract for the express purpose of securing reservoir pressure. Gravitation is called for by our present contract and an equalized and steady pressure from water stored on the hills overlooking the city. From the begin ning this city lias been given a direct pressure system. We have been made dependent upon the pumus on the bottom rather than on the reservoirs on the hill. The results are known to allj muddy water for domcatie use , enormous plumb ing bills , broken connections nuii. burstcd mains , trouble at fires ami general dissatisfaction. It is J > ! gh time that the water works com pany should bo made to comply with the ordinance under which they operate. They have steadily and persistently violated lated their contract with the city. Promises nro no longer par. Onwliu demands compliance with the contract. Another main must bo built to the reservoir. The ridiculous farce ot pretending to pump water into the btor- ago reservoir and to distribute It from the reservoir through tnc same pipe has beqa pltiyod long enough. Cracking the Boseg' Whip , Dr. George L. Miller , whoso fidelity to tlio interests of great corporate monopo lies has boon the condition of his Ilium * clal success , fools called upon to read the riot act to prospective democratic members < bors of tlio Nebraska legislature. He warns the faithful that nnydemocrat whc refuses to throw away his vote by sticking to a democratic candidate for sonatoi will bo politically ostracised. Chagrined by the defeat of his old corporation pal Church Howe , ho fumes and froths aboul "foul consplracicn" to elont John A. Mo Shane and hints at "rceimt sales" am1 "meditated treasons , " while ho cracks the whip of the political bos.s ovoi the heads of his party associates , "Domocratio fidelity" of which Jaj Gould's biographer and flatterer talks EC glibly on papnr nnd practices when II falls into line with his own interests ami that of the. corporations whioh he hai served for years , will not prevent a mini bor of honest democrats from casting their votes thin winter for Charles H. Var Wyck. At least twenty democratic members bors elected against notorious monopoly tools owe their election to friends of Senator ator Van \Vyck both in nnd out of the democratic party. Many of them won nominated by conventions iu which Gen crul Van Wyok was named as the ropub Mean choice nf the delegates assembler and in which the candidates noiuinatci pledged thomsolve ? to vote for him Ir case the election of a domocratio sonatoi could not be secured. There is about a : much chance of the election of a demo cralio senator as there is of Or. Miller securing curing a * eat in ( Jloveland's cabinet. Tin democratic inombers of the legislature numbering less than u third of the tola membership , will decline-to act ns cat a paws for the monopolies- aiding iu tin defeat of Van Wyck nnd the election of n railroad republican. Dr. Miller may note the prediction. Clinnslnjj the GnrrUon * . The imnending arrival of the Highlit In fantry , Colonel Kant/ commanding , has compelled n reorganization of the garri sons in the department of the Plattc. Ten additional companies of troops are lo bo placed where they will do the most good nnd various changed arc inndo necessary in consequence. 1'ollowing out General Crook's old-time policy , which has since been made the policy of the war department nnd of General Sheri dan , the troops will bo concentrated as i.ir as possible at largo posts on lines of railway and adjacent to the strategic positions in the dciurtmcnt. The con rcntratlon of the Sixth infantry at Camp Douglas mouths ago , made that garrison ono of the few at which tin entire regi ment is stationed. Within a few weeks , Fort Omaha will follow with the entire command of the Second infantry , located ut the barrack ? , and Colonel AVhealon will have his ontlro olllclal family around him , ten companies strong. The increased garrisons resulting from the accession of Iroons , will bo Omaha , Nio- brara and Robinson. The Niobrara is made the headquarters of the Eighth infantry , and six companies of that regiment will bo added to the throe troops of cavalry now stationed thero. Fort Robinson will have Iho garrison increased from four to seven companies as soon as now quarters can he built for the men. An earnest ef fort will bo made by our congressional delegation at the coming session tosccuro tlio pa xago of Senator Mandorson's bill appropriating funds for now quarters and barracks at FerN Robinson and Niobrara. Should this bo accoinnlishcd each will doubtless bo made u regimental post , in accordance with the expressed wishes of the war department. The policy of con centration of troops in largo garrisons is dictated by considerations of economy ind availability in case of a demand for their services. The three garrisons named are all immcdiatol } ' adjacent lo lines of rail road. One of them , Fort Robinson , is directly on the railroad. There are no long hauls by wagon , causing expensive maintenance of troops and a largo quar termaster's train. In case of outbreak nearly three regiments could bo hm'riod at a moment's notice to the scene of trouble. Aa to Prohibition. The fatal mistake of a rcmiblican con vention in yielding to the pressure of im practical fanatics is shown by a greatly decreased republican vote throughout the state. There is scarcely a county whore republican losses cannot be di rectly traced to this act of republican folly. An increase of from thirteen to fifteen votes in the democratic strength of the legislature is also chiofiy duo to this one cause. The foreign born voting clement were incensed at a * threatened invasion of their rights. Several thou sand conservative republicans wore alarmed at a menace to the material in terests of the state , and either secretly voted for the demo cratic nominees or remained away from the polls. Had the danger of the submission of n prohibitory amendment been generally considered as hnucndfng , the revolt would have boon even moro striking. The republican party gave Nebraska its high license law with the features of local option and school maintenance. The same political organization placed on our statute books the law makimg liquor sellers responsible for the aamago inllicted by their trallic. Combined , the two laws are as stringent in their prohib itory features as the one under which Georgia is now operating. Tnere is not iv county in the .state to-day whore u no license stmtimont pi avails where prohibition cannot bo so- cured. There is no community , whatever tlio sentiment , where a judge and jury will not mete out the penalties of a violation of the damage law if tlio of fense is brought to their attention. Under such circumstances Statutory prohibition , which al' ' c-xporienco has proved to ba impossible of general en forcement , would boa criminal blunder. Leaving out of the discussion the damage lo party , the loss of property interests , tlio dangerous invasion of individual rights , it would bo substilutlnt ; a dead letter for a living reality. Many republi cans see this. The democratic party are pledged against it. Hoth combined wlli bo strong enough to defeat tliu oll'ort to put Nebraska in the line \yith groaning Iowa , bleeding Kau r.s , and ridiculous Rhode Island , \vhore prohibition does not prohiblt'trunkonncssbut makes up tor the la.ck by stimulating law breaking and in creasing taxation. A Blguiflontit Story. Our telegraph columns yesterday morn ing contained a special dispatoh from New York giving an extract from a Now York Jltmld article in which the presence of Mr , IHninc ii : Now York and some peculiar move' ments of the proprietor nnd managing editor of the Times of that city , Mr George Jones and Mr. John Hold , wen associated as giving color to a report tlin eflorts had been made to cfiuct n recoil ciliation between Iho Maine slalcsmai and the loading mugwump journal of the country. Although such a report will up pear incredible to those who are at ul familiar with the long and bitter untip < alhy of Iho Times under its present man ngomcnt to Air. Itlaino , it is possible tc regard it as not ontiroh without plans ! bility.Vo \ are not anfllciontly familial with the cause of this hostility to staler with unquestionable accuracy , but it an- tedales Iho national republican convon lion of 1870 and IKU since been persist ently maintained. One of the most potoni forces opposing Mr , Hlalno at Cincinnati in 1870 , where ho received from Col , Ingorsoll the title of "Plumed Knight,1 was the antagonism of tlio Now York Tinits , licforo the convention , when the prospects of lllulno seemed more thar brilliant , that paper notified the rcpnbll can party , with which It was then in fnl accord , that If he wore nominated I would oppose his election regardless o whom the democrats placed in nomina lion , To emphasize lids antagonism Mr George Jones appeared in person at Cm cinnati and made every possible muni festation of his hostility to Blaine Again in 1680 the Times renewed its warfare faro upon the gentleman from Maine though perhaps leas conspicuously than before , yet not without effect , while iti course iu 1884 , in repudiating his nouii to indicate Iho significance of a reconcil iation , if that has realjyjiecu sought and shall lie effected , wliotlcr , the overture thereto comes from The Titiits people or from Mr. Hlalno. Tno first suggestion that gives a Dl.iiislbifity to the story is the probability that the \ Tics \ managomenl have grown tired of. , their unenviable , and doubtless tinpixJlltable , attitude as the chief exponents of1 mugwiimplsiu. It Is not que tionabl6 that iu abandoning llielr republican allegiance they made a very considerable pecuniary sacrifice , and it is more than probable that it has been continuous. It practically left the entire field of metro politan republican journalism to the Tribune , nnd the opportunity was improved by tliu latter paper greatly lo its financial advantage. There Is reason to believe that the Tribune never before enjoyed as great a degree of prosperity as II has had during the pa t l\v < > years , and is now having in increasing volume , a part of which the Times management understand is their loss. Another and far moro interesting suggestion is tjie probable fact that Iho political foresight of the Times discerns Ihc strong promise of a restoration of the government to re publican control two years hence , in whleh event it would bo at a still greater disadvantage if still out of favor with that party. A forcible indication of n desire lo return to in former allegiance appeared in its great activity and zeal In supporting Hooscvelt for mayor , In thn course of which it was of necessity com pelled to proclaim republican views. Possibly if tlio rcnomlnation and reelection tion of Cleveland were reasonably as sured , tlio Times would feel constrained to continue- tlio course it has pitr.-ucit for the past two years , but it sees that the probabilily of cither of the o ovcnls lak- Ing place is steadily growing less , while widespread democratic dlsallection , dem onstrated in the results of the late election , menaces the party with disaster in the next national campaign. In that ease , standing where it now stahds , it would necessarily share in the ashes of defeat. It shrewdly prefers to put itself iu posi tion to partake of the fruits of victory. Hut why de.stre , as a prerequisite to a return to its former allegiance , a recon ciliation with the man it has so long ami so relentlessly fought ? Is it to be in ferred that Ihe Times regards Mr. Hlaino as Hie coming man , against whoso strength and popularity it will bo useless to longer battle' 'Not ' necessarily. It may not deem him to bo even a possi bility , but as a rceo iiiii d party leader it is obviously necessary to be al peace with him as a con.ditip'n to complete allegiance. Thn Thnts , cannot retract all that it has said in Iho pasl leu years in condemnation of Mr. Blaine , but it can lot him alone , arid Inis is probably all the cousi Jeralion' ' lie Vould require of it. Unq uestionably'lhe panaRing editor of llio Times , who islumped , in llio dis patch , and the men who write its politi cal opinions , are In their political sympa thies and afiilintions republicans , audit is not unlikely Unit ? tlujy have grown weary of solf-slultificalion. It would bo gratifying to. liud tho/2 ; H < v ! buck in line as a straightforward exponent of rcmib- hcan principles , aud it would bo a good thing for that very excellent newspaper. A Hint from OoFoc. Mr. Howe is reported as remarking that the only balm for his harrowed feel ings is the failure of the editor of the HUE to secure a seat in the legislaluro. Mr. Howe is suffering from a bad attack of political paralysis , and a kindly charity should throw n veil over his tortures. If the defeat of the editor of this paper alle viates them ho is welcome to the prescrip tion. It will doubtless still further grat ify him to know that the persistent atten tion bestowed by Itoscxrator on Ciinrch Howe's candidacy ws ; rcslon3iui0 solely for his on lailuro to secmo an election. The defeat of ono was needed lo purge Nebraska republicanism. The election of the other was a matter of trilling importance compared with it. There are no shafts rankling iu the breast of Iho editor of this pupor Locaiiso lie failed of an election ir. a contest which buried the republican candidate for con gress , lost Ucnoral Thayer this county by eighty votes , and defeated nearly a half ot the legislative ticket. IIo recognized fully the uncertainty of the. result before he entered the canvass , and the outcome was not surprising. The editor of an in fluential journal necessarily makes many personal enemies , and an election brings them out. It was Daniel DeFoe who m Iho olden lime incisively remarked : "If I might give a short hint to an impartial writer It would be to loll him his falo. If ho resolved to venture upon the dangerous precipice of lolling unbiased truth , let him proclaim war upon mankind neither to give nor lo lake quarter. If ho tolls the crimes of groal men they fall upon him with the iron ImmU of the law ; if ho tolls them of virlucs. when they have any , llion the mob attack him with idandor. Hut if ho regards trulh lot him expect martyrdom on both sides , and thun ho may go on foarles- > .

Parliament iccoini/cs the fact thai elections mo expensive , and the amount nny candidate can spend for election purposes Is limited. The limit Is regulated by n sliding scale proportioned to the si/.o of the constituencies. In the lame cities ncnn- didnto Is permitted to spend 52.1.000 for elec tion purposes. In smaller cities the sums tire less. Under the election ci lines net a full leturn of expenses must hn made by each candidate , through his agent , under oath to the government. In this re port every cent expended must be accounted for.

[ Correspondcneo of tlio Hii : : . ] Looking over the ground on whleh the battles of the bascb.tll eilu- : palgiH have boon fought , nnd cxanimliv ; the plans and operations of the contest lug forces in the League and American arenas , Its plainly observable that lh same blunders of club management have characterised the season as liavo hither.i ! prevailed , although not lo the same ex tent. Hut tlic o errors are n * conspecu- Otis , almost , as if the experience of tv- conl years had laught no lessons , co tly as It has been In a financial point of view Drunkenness In the ranks 1ms boon toler ated through the mistaken policy of con doning such oflcuscs. Tlio evil of "kick- Ing" by uudl.sclplincd players lias been permitted , with the consequent rcsull nf disgraceful disturbances on Iho ball field when It Is allowed , and there has been nearly the same amount of undorham ! * work in the ftlrugijlo of rival clubs , In both associations , to secure the services ol noted players. Moreover , the Bamo mistaken judgment lias been shown in the management of club-teams as pre vailed in tlio earlier days in respect to Iho continual changes made in the material of a club team securing the champion ship season , the natural consequences nf such a policy being the distancing of the badly managed clubs in the pennant race. Witness tlio tail end positions of Iho Washluglon and lialtimore clubs in their respective pennant races. My way of compensation , however , for these blun ders of piofusslonal club management there .stand out in bold relief not only the record of the splendid exhibition of Hold ing skill in the champjonshlp contest of tins .season , together with striking exam ples of first-class management of club- teams , but above all a thorough record for integrity of ilay in the rinks of nil the professional clubs , north , onst nnd west of the Southern League district , which fully balances all the minor draw backs of tlit ) past season's caiiipaigns above referred to ; lor while the preserva tion of honest play among the tratornity is the very foundation of the Mieco < s- ful existence of the whole profess ional structure , the mistakes of judg ment in club management only alluets tno financial prosperity of the organisations immediately concerned. The only draw back to a ercditab'o record of the whole base ball campaign of 1S8G is that a min ority of the clubs of the Southern longuo failed to follow the lead of the Northern longuo in barring out that curse of all sports , noil-selling and pool-gambling. A costly lesson haw been taught to them , however , in the form of a financial dis aster , ami next year they will doubtless profit by it. One result of the final scries of the championship games of the season , played at Chicago and St. Louis in Octo ber , between the League club of Chicago , mid tlio American club of St. Louis , was that the vietory scored by the St. Louis club gave the lie to thoslauderonr charge of "hippodoniing" made by the gamblers of the two cities. The absurdity ot the charge was shown in the fact that the gate receipts of the series of six games went to the winning club , leaving out the risk involved in the loss of a single game , The Chicago defeat of the St. Louis club in the lir-il game of the seriei was easily to bo accounted for , on the basis not only of that club's playing on the Chicago club's grounds , but also from their nervous - vous anxiety to win. As for the signal de feat unstained by llio Chicago club the next day , that was so plainly duo ( the weak exhibition of witchi by iMcCot- miok ns to i ; ; * no surprise to those well posted in base ball matters , his weak ness being due to his over indulgence in drinking since the close of Iho regular campaign , The contest may have lioen saiii to bo the turning point of the sorlc.s , inasmuch as after such a victory the visi tors were umpired With a degree of con fidence in thuir ability lo win on their homo grounds at St. Louis , which the ultimate issue of the con test proved to be well fo.U > ' .
