The sltitomont of the attorney Ron
oral of the United Statoa that in portions
tions of the country there hits been
shown such hostility to the federal
courts and officers as to seriously inter
fere with the administration ot Justice ,
presents a mnttcr of the very gravest
Importance For the most part this
hostility has boon developed in election
casi.s , whore fcdoral prosecuting attor
neys prosecuted against persons who
had violated the oioctlon laws , but it
has not boon confluent to this class ot
cases The attorney general says :
But it must not bo supposed that hostility
to the United States courts ami United
States officers is conllncd to election mutters
On the contrary , the records of the depart
ment of J'jstico show that in some districts
the civil proceedings of these courts and
criminal prosecutions wholly disconnected
with the olcotlvo franchise cannot proceed ,
because the lives of necessary witnesses nro
in such d.uisrcr that it would be simply In
human to enforce tuoir nUcrulancj anj the
RiviiiR of tnelr testimony ; while the ovldonco
is abundant that in certain localities no oc
cupation is so dangerous ns n faithful per
formance of duty by United States marshals
Of course such lawlessness cannot bo toler
ated In every uata the instructions to
prosecute have lioen couptoj with the as
surance that no means within the power of
this dopartmotit will bo spared to protect of
ficers nnd witnesses In the discharge of their
duties , nnd to bring to punishment every
man who illegally attempts to thwart such
Certainly this Is a matter which
should deeply interest every citizen
who doslros the consorvattolt of law
nnd the constitutional exercise ot the
national authority Great as is the
wrong Involved in depriving citizens of
their political rights , it is not a more
serious matter than that ot interfering
with and defeating the administration •
of justice in the fcdoral courts , and the
toleration of such interference any
wlicro , under whatever circumstances ,
is to invite the growth of n inoro for
midable danger to the perpetuity of
our institutions than coultl arise from
any other cause If anywhere in this
land justice is compelled to abandon
the pursuit ot those who vlolato the
laws because the Uvo3 ot the ollicors of
the law and those who are necessary to
the prosecution of the criminals will
be imperilled if they perform their
duty , there is a place where the
power ot the government cannot bo
carried too fur nor exerted too rigor
ously for the removal of the evil and
every loyal and law-respocttng citizen
would sustain the mostcxtromo measure
found necessary to protect the courts
and the olllcors acting under them In
the discharge of their proper functions
It cannot bo necessary to indicate in
what portion of the country the out
rages noted by the attorney general
nave occurred , but no matter whore the
spirit of hostility to federal courts and
officers of justice exists , and makes
itself felt In a way to contravene the
enforcement of the laws aud defeat
justice , It is the obvious duty of the
government , and absolutely necessary
to the maintenance of a general public
respect for the laws , to crush out such
hostility by the use , if necessary , of
every power at the command of the
government Whatever diversity of
opinion there may bo as to the wisdom
and expediency of a federal election law
to protect ull cities in the free choice of
their representatives there will be none
regarding the overshadowing noccssity
of so guarding the national courts and
these acting under their authority and
subject to their commands that the ad
ministration of justice shall everywhere
aud at all times bo free from all checker
or obstruction
There is no moro difficult or import
ant task devolved on the speaker of the
house of representatives than that of
making up the standing committees
Thoclnlmsof individuals , the welfare
of party and of politics , the interests of
legislation , the precedents , all have to
bo taken into consideration Most
speakers h.tvo found this task l > oth
laborious and embarrassing , and it has
sometimes happened that a month or
inoro has boon consumed In completing
it , as was the case with Mr Carlisle in
appointingthocommitteesof the fiftieth
congress Speaker Reed has accomp
lished the mo3t important part of this
work with exceptional promptness , the
leading committees being already an-
nbunced The suloetiont for the heads
of these committocs are the gentlemen
whoso appointment hud been expected
Mr McKinley of Ohio is chairman of
the ways and means committee , with
Mr Burrows ot Michigan in second
place , and these gentlemen will have
among their democratic associates Mr
Carlisle of Koutucky and Mr Mills of
Texas The republican membership
cf the ways and moans committee Is not
roassuringfor tv tariff bill that will re
vise the existing schedule In the direc
tion of lower duties and au enlarged
free list to the oxtotit dosirbd by a
largo portion of the republican party ,
and justified by present conditions The
attitude of Mr McKinley , who will bo
the controlling spirit among the repub
lican members of the committee , 1h well
known to ho that of pronounced oppo
sition to any considerable reductions in
tariff duties It was understood that ho
did not approve of many ot the ohangos
reducing duties in the semite bill of the
last congress , and his tariff speeches in
Ohio during the late campaign showed
that ho was not In sympathy with the
reform sontlmont In his own party Ho
is distinctively the champion , and
perhaps the ablest in the country ,
of the high protective policy It is pos
sible , however , that the position of the
administration regarding the tariff , as
vvoll as of a largo body of republicans in
Now England and the west , may load
Mr McKinley to somewhat modify his
views , and to ngrco to such a revision of
the tariff us will prune It ot such duties
as are no longer necessary to the pro
tection of domestic industries , but serve
only to enable manufacturers to exact
an unwarrntitabla nnd unjust tribute
from the people ,
Mr Cannon of Illinois is chairman of
the committee on appropriations , a po
sition of honor nnd responsibility which
that gentleman will undoubtedly fill
with great ability While Mr Ran
dall was at the head of this committee
ho oxoruisod a greater power oyer the
course .of logislutiou , at particular
Junctures , than any ether ono man In
the house , nnd so objoctlonnblo did
his tactics bceomo to his own
party that an effort was made at
the oponlng of the Fiftieth con
gress , by changing the rules , to greatly
reduce his power to Interfere with the
course of legislation Tliero will prob
ably bo no occasion for the ropubllcntis
to find a ltko fault with Mr Cannon ,
but the country may safely expect of
him a vigilant and judicious guardian
ship ot iho public treasury Mr Ilcn-
dorson of Iown Is a member of this
committee , and will take proper care of
western Interests which it may bo
called upon to consldor Mr Kelley of
Pennsylvania , the father of the
house , " Is glvon merited recognition as
chairman ot the commlttco on inatitt-

Mr Itcod hnB followed precedent In

speakership contest , and the result will

The state board of ngrlculturo , at its
mutual mooting January ill , will decide
where the state fair shall bo hold lor
the ensuing five years Tliero promises
to bo six competitors , Omaha , Lincoln ,
Hastings , Kcnrney , Grand Island and
Columbus Lincoln hns good grounds
and buildings , and her competitors for
the fair must bo proKirod | to guarantee
equally favorable facilities and accom
modations This would involve an ox-
pcnulturo of not loss tlinn one
hundred nnd fifty * " thousand dollars
Omaha should bo able tp readily raise
this sum , and moro if necessary , in
order to sccuro the great advantngo
that would bo derived from having the
fair hero It ought to bo obvious to our
business men that-such an annual at
traction to the whole people of Ne
braska and to many of these of contigu
ous states would most certainly
nssuro a handsome return on
an expenditure ot ono hundred
and fifty or two hundred thousand del
lars Nothing draws so largely lib a
state fair , and the great majority of these
who attend it unite business with pleas
uro If Omaha seriously desires to
sccuro this great attract'on prompt ac-
tiou is necessary There is but little
more than a month for the work of
scouring subscriptions , nnd while that
ought to bo tlmo enough , if our business
men take a proper and practical inter
est in the matter , none ot it should
be wasted Committees of the Douglas
county agricultural society , the Omaha
fair association , and the board of
trade presented the matter to ti moot
ing of the board last night It was de
cided to make a bid of two hundred
thousand dollars to socurc the fair
It is not doubted that there is n
strong sentiment throughout the state
favorable to Omaha , and if this city
manifests a liberal spirit its chances of
securing the fair should bo first rate
But the competition to overcome is
formidable , and Omaha can succeed
only by supporting her superior claims ,
as the metropolis of the state , with a
generous financial backing ' promptly

Mayor Broatch's latest screed is truly
la marvelous tale a collodion of
brazen falsehoods calculated to befog
the issue and cover up the trcaehory of
himself und his hired assassins on elec

charges of Tin : finis , but reverts to
street gossip to mitigate his infamy
No amount ot Bolf-prniso and hypo
critical pretense can wipe out the ugly
fact that Broatch'a career as mayor ,
from bogiutilug to end , has boon ono ot
unceasing duplicity A doublo-dealor
by nnturo nnd ' training , ho has paraded
the upper wards with a bauctlmonlous
visage , to hoodwink the law and order

Broatch waves asldo as a trillo the
fact that ho sanctioned the paytnont of a

brazen conduct in forcing on the pay

Certain newspapers which are very friend
ly to the Central Pacific railroad nro Insist
ing that the corporation cannot pay its debts ,
nnd that if payment bo insisted upon the
road must bo abandoned or the money to pay
the debt bo dragged out of the people of Cal
ifornia by an Incrc.iso In the rates of fares
nnd froichts Neither of these positions is
tenable The past history of the Central
Puclllo railroad demonstrates that it has
been a moneymaking road , and thnro is no
reason why it should bo less profitable now ,
when the stnto has iucreasod in
wealth and population , than it was
olght or ton yoirs ago As ovcrybody
knows , the Southern Pacific road was
built out of the Di oilts of the Central Pacific ;
the quadrilateral accumulated itnmcuso pri
vnto fortunes ; u number of anotllary com
panies both railroad and construction com
panies were enriched ; and enormous sums
of money were spent in ways wlucn will not
bear the light of Investigation ; and all this
was donn out or the earnings of the Central
Pacific Is it not obvious , then , that it the
Conttnl Pacific were given nn even clmnco ;
It traffic were not studiously diverted from
it ; if its rolling stock nnd equipments were
ltopt up properly ; nnd if tliero were nnt a do-

Whllo waiting at Stevenson , Ala , some of

made nn extomnornneous hdccqIi Tina
speech was reported nt tbo titno by Mr
Rosewater , now connected with The Ommiv
Heh , but nt that time telegraph operator and
press ngent at Stevenson The following is
an extract from Mr Davis remarks :
England will recognize us and n glorious
future is before us The grass will grow In
northern cities where pavements have boon
worn oft by the tread of commerce Wo will
carry the war where it is easy to advance ,
where food for sword and torch awaits our
armies in the densely populated cities The
enemy may como and spoil nur crops , but wa
can raise tlie.111 as before ; they cannot roar
again the cities which took years ol industry
and millions of inouoy to build Wo are
now determined to maintain our position
and make all who oppose us smell southern
powder and feel southern steel
Mr Rosewater , telegraphed the speech in
full to the Associated press and It was
printed in the northern papers the following
day It created quite a sensation , us it out
lined the policy Mr Davis intondoa to pur
sue and was the first Intimation ho had given
of what his plans were
lu 1ST5 , fourteen years later , General John
A. J , Crcswell , who had been postmaster
general under Prosldont Grant , ( In the politi
cal combat in Maryland , charged Mr Davis
with the sontlmcnts expressed in this speech ,
which had boon printed in several histories
of the rebellion Oua of the prominent dem
ocratic leaders denied , on be hair of Mr
Davis , that any such language h\d over been
used by hlin , and Mr Davis himself in a card
published in 0110 of the southern papers
about two weelc later , denied over having
made any speech nt tbo tlmo and place men
tioned , or ever having said in substance
what was attributed to hlin In reply to this
the paper with which Mr Rosewater is con
nected replied editorially , giving the names
ot the members of tno committee that walled
on Mr Davis and all the circumstances con
nected with his passage through Stevenson
Mr Rosewater says that as ho kept a diary
ut the time , and ns the speech wns reported
to tno Associated [ press within thirty min
utes utter the nadrcss was delivered , it Is
hardly possible tliero'could have been any
mlstako made
