It will' probably bo n long time before another attempt is mmlo to put upon the bench of this dis trict men who are notoriously unfit for such n position and who lack the confidence of the people , which every judge should have. The rebuke administered to the reck less party hacks who imagined that they could whip decent republicans into line nnd force the election of dangerous men nud incompetents to the judichil positions in this district could not well bo more emphatic. It teaches n lesson which wo hope will not soon bo forgot ten. It is a rcmonslrtinco which pru dent leaders must heed , nnd which as piring roustabouts will long remember. The mere fact that the republicans are in a majority In this county and district affords no guarantee oj an election unless the clean nnd competent candidates arc nominated. This is by no means the first time that the best elements of the party have repudiated the work of n nominating convention. These periodic revolts are the safety valve against the dangerous overpressure exerted by the party machine in the hands of un principled men. The BEK heartily con gratulates the people of the Third dis trict upon their deliverance from a roustabout judiciary and the election of men who are entitled to their confidence and esteem. A ni'llllunt Political The local political fight in New York City was one of the most brilliant politi cal battles over witnessed. The chief point of interest was the district attor- ncyship , an office of vast importance , aa the conclusion of the case against Jacob Sharp , charged with bribing the alder men , was involved. Two candidates presented themselves , both democrats , and both assistants under the present district attorney , Marline. Col. John 11. Fellows , the joint nominee- Tam many and the county democracy , was the orator of the boodle trials. Ho made the final pleas before the juries In flvo of the six trials , and In four of thorn se cured a conviction. Delancey Nicoll , his opponent , has had sole charge of the boodle cases and the work of prepare- Lion und presentation of evidence , se lecting juries and arguing pointslin law lias been his. The impression obtained ihat the case against Sharp now before the court of appeals was to bo dropped , and that Fellows was chosen to do the work. The republicans on the strength of this impression took up the cause ol young Nicoll , a candidate for the dem ocratic nomination , and placed him on the republican ticket. A cross fight of unusual bitterness immediately arose , the mugwumps joining in to support Nicoll. The New York World was es pecially severe in its criticisms upon Fellows , and he was charged with being a dead-beat , with unsatisfied judgments of over $10,000 standing against him. His sympathy and connection with the exiled boodlurs in Canada was shown , and fac similes of correspondence dated fourteen years ago between him nnd Tweed was shown. Against these damaging attacks Colonel Fellows stood up manfully und with honeyed orator } explained them all away. Nevertheless the democracy , with a clear working majority in the city of fifty thousand was alarmed for the candidate , and Mayor Hewitt wrote nn urgent appeal making Colonel Fellows' cause his own praying the democracy to stand to gether for the sake of the state ticket and national administration. At UK eleventh hour President Cleveland was induced to write a letter endorsing the whole ticket and with a special request that Follows bo elected. The fight became came desperate for Fellows , a poor man nnd fifty-seven years of ago. Without t law practice , defeat under such charge : meant poverty and disgrace for himsel and family. Nor could his party wel stand defeat for this powerful official Nicoll , although a young man am exceedingly brilliant , stood in UK position of a bolter after going to tlu convention of his party us a can dSdtxte and defeat for him meant hi ; political death. The World with its on ormouB circulation nnd the Times wit ! : its mugwump following wore also in th < balance , the former alienating itsol forever from the local democracy ant the latter cutting itself off from Cleveland land and the administration. For thcsi two papers Nicoll's success was of tin greatest importance. Both forces hat exhausted their resources in behalf o their candidates and money was usedoi both sides without stint. As a rcsul Fellows is elected by a handsome major ity. Nicoll receives 10,000 votes mon than were given to Grant , nnd tin George candidate for the district attor noyship falls behind his ticket 10,00 * votes. The Ilctmlt In Ohio. ' It has never been seriously double * that the republican ticket in Ohi < would bo successful. The democrat wore heavily Imndlcapod by the vor ; bad record which the party had mad ! during the past throe or four years Frauds at the ballot box , corruption ii the legislature , extravagance In admin lull-alien which bankrupted the slat treasury , and the prostitution of the supreme promo court to partisan purposes , mail a load that no party could carry will any hope of success In a state whos voters read and are of average intolli gonco. The effort of the democrat ! leaders to divert attention from the sin of the party nnd run cho campaign 01 national issues was neither success ful nor profitable. The pec pie could not forgot the record nnd in the discussion o national issues there were several im portnnt respects in which the democrat wore at ft disadvantage. Not the leas of these was the advanced position the , took on the tariff question , which however admirable as an example c courage dissatisfied a great many dome crats who are as ardent believers In prc toction as are the republicans of Ohic Neither was it wise to avowedly mak the fight in the interest of the nations admlnlstratpn , which was done when th democratic- candidate for governor wn nominated and nuule more distinctly ai parent 09 the campaign advanced. II forced an issue that ought to have boor rOoorvcd for a-yoar Inter nnd compelled the republicans of Ohio to record thoii verdict on the presidential question tion twelve months In advance. It happened that circumstances oc curred to imbue them with a spccln' ' hostility to the administration which had a year been allowed to intervene might hare proved less effective. As It is , Ohio can with entire safety be placed in the republican column foi 1888 , whatever may arlso meanwhile. . It was nn unfortunalo move for the clem ocrats in importing the governor o ; Georgia , fresh from praising and honor ing the chief of the confederacy , 1 < take part in their campaign. 1'lierc wore other blunders , but those wo have cited , added to the burden of its manj sins , wore sufficient to defeat Iho parly and the wonder is that the republlear majority is not much larger. The personal effect of the republican victory in Ohio will very likely bo tc strengthen Governor Foriikcr in the good opinion of the party generally. It cannot be denied that ho made t gallant aggressive campaign , and ha : demonstrated that ho is a politician ol miud'tind mottle , qualifications essen tial to n leader. IIo is to some extent pardonable for the sectional controvcrsj that became so prominent u feature ol the campaign , since Iho democratic plan provoked it. But it is to bo said that Mr. Forakcr is rather too fond ot this line of discussion , in which ho it undoubtedly at his best , and for this reason is not the ina'n to bo pushed ftn to the front as representing1 the spiril and sentiment of the republican part.\ as a whole. Ho has very warm admir ers who will probably endeavor to rti this , and it will be well to servo limel } notice upon them that the republicans of the country , at least outaldo of Ohio are not expecting and do not desire that the presidential campaign nhtill bo rut on the Ohio model. Nevertheless Mr , Forakor is likely to bo something more of a figure in the party councils than he has been , and in the proper place will undoubtedly render good service. Of Great Benefit to Omaha. The opening of the Armour packing house nt South Omaha ycslerdny is at : event of great interest to the people o : this city. One thousand hogs wore slaughtered the first day , but this num ber is by no means the full capacity o ; the concern. By reason of the concen tralion of the leading packing concern ! in South Omaha this city has become for this section ft better hog market than Chicago. The opening of UK Armour house , which will now continue to slaughter from 1,000 to 5,000 hog ; daily during the season , establishes theme homo market that cannot possibly be excelled. Within a few days the Swift establishment , fully as largo as the Armour house , will be opened , and the local demand for hogs will bo materially increased. This will remove the ilifli cnlty under which buyers nnd sellers at South Omaha have labored thi ruling of Kansas City aud Chicagt pi-ices for live stock and the consc quent fluctuations dependent on the receipts c-eipts nt the South Omaha yards in ex cess of the demand at the local packing houses. A stiffening of prices has nl ready been noticed as a result of th ( work of Armour's buyers. This gives s character to the Omaha stock tunrku' that draws attention hither of all deal ers and producers in Nebraska and west crn Iowa. Representatives of the Swift and Ar mour concerns hnvo given assur anccs to the Stockman , the orgai of the packing interests at Soutl Omaha , that preparations are nov being made for the slaughter of cattli on a largo scale. This , of course , wil put the cattle market at South Onuihi on as substantial a footing ns thai upoi which the hog market is to rest. Onuihi has heretofore been powerless to in flu once the catllo market and Iho produc of Ihis section has been dependent upoi the lluctunlions at Chicago and Knnsa City. With a strong demand fron these lo two enormous packing houses Omaha'slive stock markets will bo o far greater importance to this sectioi than those of either Kansas City o Chicago. Tlio United Ktatet * Senate. It seem * to bo very probable that Mr Riddloborgo. . of Virginia , will bo sue ceeded in the United States senate by democrat. His term will expire Marcl 3 , 1839. As the two parties now stand ii the senate the republicans have U9 am the democrats 37 , classing Riddlobergc as a republican. Ho has exhibited in dependent tendencies , however , whicl make him uncertain , and ho may al an time make a tie by voting with th democrats. Whether ho will bo mon or less likely to do this by reason of th result of the election in Virginia it i difficult lo say. A democratic succosso to the Virginia senator will not chang the relative strength of the two partic in Iho senate if , as now appears prob * bio , the republicans have secured a nu jority in the Now Jersey Icgislatui und will thus be enabled to elect a re publican successor to J. R. McPhcrsoi whoso term will expire in 1839. It i not improbable , however , that the claii of David S. Turpio to the scat of Senate Harrison , of Indiana , will bo ilisallowut in which case the republicans would hav a majority of twowilhoulRiddloborgoi Of Iho other senators whoso terms wi expire iu 1889 nil will undoubtedly I succeeded by mon of like politics , thai the present political complexio of the United States senate will pro ! ably not bo changed during the no four years. It is perhaps not unfortut nto that the two political parties are t nearly evenly divided in the senalo , hi il is a misfortune that a man so crratii unreliable and generally wrong-headc as Riddlobergor should have it in h power to tip that body and thereby r < tard and embarrass .business , or pcrha ] work mischief. Tlio Hanncr Ward. The Fourth ward has for years bee the banner ward of republicanism i Omaha. Populated nlmo.st entirely I business mou nnd the be t class of 01 citizens its expression through the ba lot box affoi-Js a reliable index of tli sontimonl , of Iho reputable and intoll gent element of Iho community. The banner warel has been hoard from andii Hpoko with no uncertain sound * Judge Maxwell , who represents the party sentiment of the ward , received 033 votes for supreme judge , ngninst 492 for the democratic candidate. In other words , the republican majority of the Fourth ward on supreme judge was 439. Contrast with this the vote for district judges. The banner ward gave Estollo only 425 votes and Ballou only 371 , while of their competitors Wakoloy received 1,135 , Graff 5,081 , and Doano 1,043. Just think of111 A republican \vnrd ' which gave Judge Maxwell 430 majority gave Wakoloy 710 majority over JMollo and 7fll over Ballou , whilu Groff benta Ealollo G5G nnd Ballou 707 , and Dpano' , .who was represented aa awfully unpopular , beats Estollo 013and Ballou by GG9. The banner republican waril gave Frank Mooros 093 votes , or n cl9an majority of 659 over his demo cratic opponent , while Dave Mercer , for county judge , only received 603 votes altogether and was beaten by Shields , democrat , by 310. This is the most scathing rebuke that how over been ad ministered in this stnto. It is a procla mation by the reputable element of the party thai only clean and compelent candidates can count011 its support. THE interference of the president in the Massachusetts campaign appears to have been less effective than was his intermcddlincr in New York. There was great joy in the democralic camji of Hie Bay stale when the information was communicated that Mr. Cleveland endorsed the stnto ticket and desired it < : Oioclion. The disaffected ceased their complaining and those who were satis fied became sanguine of success. It was believed the expression of Iho president would at once draw into line the mug wump vole , which with the Butler con tingent was thoughl tomaketheoutlool < for the democracy entirely horonc. II is now evident , however , that a serious miscalculation was made somewhere , and very likely it was with regard to those somewhat troublesome and uncer tain fellowstho mugwumps. liven a presi dential endorsement could not induce them to accept Levering , and it may ap pear when the figures are all in that there were a good many democrats who felt Ihc same way. Democratic politics in Massachusetts has been somewhat de moralized , and maybe more so since Tuesday's defeat , yet with Cleveland at the candidate next year the republicans would be surer of some other sUilcs than of Massachusetts. TITE state of Now Hampshire lin | coinc tardily into line with the states whicl : have laws to prevent and punish bribery or corruption , and this cannot bo ex plained on the ground that there Ini1 been no demand for such a law. How ever , the legislature finally grasped the situation nnd passed a lav which provides11- thai whoever at tempts lo corruptly influence an oxecu live or judicial 'ofilcer ' , or member o : the legislature , shall bo punished by im prisonment not exceeding five years ni a fine not exceeding $3,000 , and whocvci accepts a bribe shall forfeit his office be forever disqualified for holdingollicc and be imprisoned not more than tor years or fined not exceeding 35,000 Such a law ought to insure New Hump shire against unclean officials. TITK unsuccessful candidacy of Colono Frederick Dent Grant for the office o secretary of the stale of Now York dem onslrnlcs the impossibility of hodilj transferring to a son the boundless love and veneration which the people have for the father. No name is dearer tc the hearts of the people than that o Grant , and nothing , were the fntlioi alive- , would bo denied him. Bui Ihttl the son does not share in this was clearly shown by the result of the voU in New York stato. The people plncx no vnl jc whatever upon the uncesU-y o a man unless he inherits powers whiel' in thonibclvcs command respect ani attention. DIVISION has probably carried in Da kola , but the indications at-o by a small majority. There was far less interest manifested in Ihe quoslion than hae been cxpecled in view of Iho effort tha1 had been made to arouse the people Perhaps a general fooling Ihat nothing is to bo hoped for from the demooralii congress will explain the widc&prcat indifference reported. GonsiAN victorious in Marylum makes Higgins and all his other bench men secure. The reformers need hopi for no further attention from the ud ministration , while the chief of tin Maryland machine may bo expected ti wield Iho sccplro in managing the uux national democratic campaign.

Later $90 nnd $93 was paid to old first class operators ; after which the decline wasjoncral | , to the present rate. The btWdard is still SSO. A few old hands get moro. No new operator docs. Very many receive loss. Salaries range from $35 to $75 or $80 as a rule for mon. The range for wo men is from $35 to S50. They never receive men's wages. In some few coses , however , women can do men's work in full. Her work in general com pares bettor with man's work than her j > ny with man's pay , in telegraphy. Wore her work exactly on a par with man's , she would not get the bnmo wa ges. A telegraph olllcial expresses it : "When we have to pay men's wages to women , wo will putinon in their places. " Thesro is a dUposilion on Iho part of telegraph companies to biro womenand if in all cases the laltor wore equal to the demands of the business , they would bo employed perhaps exclusively. MAU5 Ol'KUATOUS say that in gen oral Iho labor is too heavy and too steady for women , anil that women do not succeed ns well as man on long circuit work. Hero the tax on patience. nerves and coolness is better borne by men , it is said. Nighl worlc again is endured by men belter than women. In the mutter of discipline there is no dif ference ; women working as steadily and industriously as men. The LJalti'moro and Ohio company employed women in greater proportions than the Western Union ; never paying more than $50 per month. In the li'eavy days' work of the Haltimoro and Ohio Company some of the women operators would send from 350 to 400 messages daily. This is a big day's work for a mail. The hours of work arc cighl for the day nnd seven for night. First-china operators under pressure can send 500 messages , nggre- galing aboul 5,000yords , in these hows. This is very exceptional. Four hundred messages nro a big day's work ; 350 n good one. Three hundred uro nearer Iho average. Women in the telegraph employ are in most cases unmarried. It is said that they marry off but slowly. They sire generally young and comely , loo. They are perhaps the handboinesldivision of women employes , The percenlago of women operators in Now York city is about 80 , oulsido of New York it is less. Thcro are several insurance und mu tual IIKNUriT OIIOAXIZATIONS among the telegraph opuralors , They are local with one exception. The tele graphers' Mutual benefit association , which is general , has its ofllco in Now York city nnd a membership over all parts of the world. The ago of oligibil- ily to admission is from 18 to 45 years. Tlio initiation fee is $2 , and the sum paid to bcnofieiaries of deceased mem bers is $1,000 per person deceased. Upon the death of a member in good standing an assessment of from $1 to $12 , according to age of entry , is made upon the survivors. The number of mom- bora of this association in round numbers is 8,800 , and the reserve - servo fund for 18S7 , is $04,000. This is accumulated by a calcula tion of U per cent of the entire amount of insurance provided by the association. M,000 of this fund is held by the Western Union Telegraph company as trustee , and the balauco by a trust com pany selected by the association's cx- ocutivo committee. In New York City there is the Tele graphers' Aid society , with an initia tion fee of $1 for any operator ; dues fifty cents per month. This society pays $ S per week to n member in case of yiukness _ and $75 in case of death , to his bonelie-iarics. There are about five hundred monibers. The ofllcors are all Western Union employes. Another is the Gold and Stock Lifo Insurance association with about four hundred members , The duos are fifty cunts per month , and tlio benefit in $ UOO payable in twelve months at $50 [ > er month. Another is a building associa tion and waving institution , and finally , in some respects most important , is the Brotherhood of Telegraphers , A SECItKT OUOANI7.ATIOK connected with the Knights of Labor. Its members have nothing to impart concerning it to disinterested inquirers. Those who are not members have no further knowledge of it than is to bo in ferred from its association with the Knights. The per centago of women in the Telegrapher's Mutual Benefit asso ciation is in the neighborhood of five per cent. Their percentage in the Tol- c-grapher's Aid society , which gives as sistance in cases of sickness , is much larger about Si5 per cent. There are few old telegraphers. Operators are anxious to quit the biibi- ncbs which nllbrdy good pay for a young man but poor for elders and holds no fu ture. Tlio operator of twenty or twenty- live earns as good pay at ho can expect at llfty. Many drop out of the largo offices " fices continually. They become stenographers go to the brokers' oflicc.s on the private tickers and remain in the brokers' business ; or they enter the newspaper connection and innumerable others in similar man ner. Baltimore & Ohio opornlor.s were mostly recruits from Western Union. AH members of the Baltimore fc Ohio company they wore animated by a strong corps spirit nnd loyalty. In join ing the Baltimore & Ohio they sup posed that they were permanently placed under a company that would never sell out. Many of TUB 11ALT1MOKK A OHIO success in its fights with Western Union were greatly duo to the concert and sentiment of the employes. There was an enlistment of the imaginative side in them , having a practical effect in the competitions of the companies. The freights of the Baltimore & Ohio company against Western Union were entered into withfrco will by the Baltimore morek Ohio employes , who often won the battle for their employers. On the 1st of November of this year fifty employes of tbo Baltimore and Ohio telegraph company , now morginl in the Western Union , received their discharge in thu morning without the * month's notice duo by tlioir contract They wore given two weeks' pay upon leaving.

Wo believe the word originally npponrod in the Cominorclnl- Gazolto in a report of the great Amer ican Express robbery in Cincinnati several years ago. Ono Sunday after noon n ono-horso wagon was driven up to the otllco on Unco street , a small iron traveling safe loaded on and taken neross the river into Kentucky and rilled. Larry Ilnzon. the famous old detective , was employed by the express company to work up the case and ho succeeded iu recovering most of the money.
