THK agitation for reform In the man agement of. public funds prows steadily in the west. Both candidates for treas urer in Colorado have given public pledges that all revenues derived from tlio use of state deposits , or from any other source , shall bo covered into the state treasury for thobonofit of the pee ple. Similar pi edges from the Nebraska - candidates would bo warmly greeted by the taxpayers. TUB doublo-endor. In Us great act of rhllng- two parties at ono and the sumo time , is giving evidence of sulToring a considerable strain. For Instance , this is the news with which it shocked Mr. Coyd nnd his friends by a dispatch from Seward ycstorday morning : The Uelusiva hopeof the old ptrty that alliance men will desert the ranks at the polls Is without reason. They are In UiotlRlUto stny. About ono-thlnl of the alliance. RtretiKtlior the county tire old lead Ins demo crats , ivid the best men of the county. Thov are the most cnthiislastlcworkcrs , ami rosciit os an Insult the cry Unit they will all vote the democratic ticket and desert tholr brothers at the polls. Tlio democrats have boon assuring themselves that the alliance strength would all bo drawn from the republi cans , as the few democrats la the organ ization would go back to their old faith Iwforo election. But hero comes the Hoyd organ , In its capacity of whoop'or- up-for-1'owcrs , with testimony of the most Bturtllng nature , If one-third of tlio alliance are democrats , who havu diwortod the party for good , then tlioro is no hopoi for Mr. Hoyd or the demo cratic party , now or hereafter. Butnuy hopes that domocratio readers BOO shat tered In ono department ol the double- ender they can 11ml rohnbilltatod In some other department. For the doublo- onilor , besides being- the most vorsatllo nhcot on earth , la also the funniest news- pujiur In the United Status , weal of the < * flieo of 1'uck , rnorruKss of THE CAMi'iiaif. There nro encouraging advices from all parts of Nebraska regarding the pro gress of the republican campaign. Largo and cntlmsimtlo meetings every whuro attest the growing interest in the runkand file of the party. This was to have been ox peeled as the result of tin Intelligent consideration of the situation. As soon as the republican farmers of the state \vorj enabled to calmly and care fully reflect upon what was ottered them by tlio several political parties , to weigh the elm noes of securing the fulfilment of their wishes through any other party than the republican , and to fairly con sider the claims of the republican party to their continued confidence and sup port , disaffection began to disappear. The hopelosHiichs of the independent movement , which serves no other pur pose than as an aid to democratic sue- CCSH , and the certainty that nothing helpful to the material Interests of the state , nnd especially to the agricultural IntercHts , can reasonably be expcc'tol from the democratic party , have con vinced republican farmers Unit what ever just cause of compliant they may have respecting the faults and omissions of tlio party in the past , the pros-ont is not an auspicious time to abandon It and take tlio risk of a , democratic adminis tration of ( ho nlTalrsof the 8tite. : The effect of this Is apparent in the rapid decline of the independent move- moiit , which Is ncnvhcro showing the vitality of a few weeks ago , and very generally is playingan insignificant part in the campaign. Its leaders have ceased boasting , and for the most part nro continuing their efforts to keep the movement alive simply with reference to possible personal advantages at some time In the rcmoto future. A steadily decreasing following has dulled their enthusiasm , but they must maintain sumo show of activity to suvo themselves from fall ing into utter political obscur ity. The Indications are that the election will show the independent movement in Nebraska to bo the sorriest failure over dignified as si political revolt. With the decline of this movement democratic hope diminishes. The solorcliancoof the democracy has hoen upon the success of this "revolt. " Its failure means domo- ratic/lofeat. The situation , therefore , is entirely en couraging to the republicans. The party may not \vln by so largo a plurality as two years ago. It Is not reasonably to bo expected. Hut there is nothing in the present conditions or indications to warrant a doubt of its success. Mean time there must be no abatement ot the agg-russivo work now being done , but on the contrary Itwill bo well to Infuse greater energy and earnestness into the campaign. The fact that the enemy is on tlio run does not justify any abate ment in the activity of the pursuit. Sound generalship requires that ho bo mono vigorously pressed. If this bo done , Nebraska will retain her proud position hi the list of republican states and will be represented in the Fifty-second congress - gross by a full republican delegation. A Of POLYGAMr. A short time ago President Woodruff of the Mormon church issued a mani festo proclaiming the abandonment of polygamy as n doctrine and practice of the church , Doubt was expressed both of tlio authority and the sincerity of this edict , It was hold that the president of the church was not authorized , of his own motion , to thus expunge a doctrine of the church , and that no Mormon was bound to pay any attention to it so long as it stood simply as tlio action of the head of the church. As to the sincerity of the manifesto , it was not diflicult to interpret parts of its language so as to warrant a doubt that it meant all it pro fessed to mean , and these predisposed to question the honesty of everything pro ceeding from a Mormon source were easily convinced that the octogenarian president of the church was seeking to play a shrewd and sinister game. This unquestionably was the universal Impression among ; the gontllo popu lation of Utah , as voiced by the anti-Mormon press of the terri tory. The feeling was that polygamy was so firmly established as a cnrdina'l doctrine that it could not possibly bo in duced to voluntarily surrender it. The report of Governor Thomas to the secre tary of the interior , forwarded since the Woodruff manifesto , says that the atti tude of Mormonism respecting poly gamy is delusive to the last degree , and that "there is no reason to believe that any earthly power can exact from the church any declaration opposed to po lygamy. " In view of till this , accepted generally as a just statouiont of the Mormon altitude regarding polygamy , the action of a general conference of the church hi unanimously recognizing the authority of the president to issue his manifesto , and accepting it us authorita tive and binding , puts the doubters on the defensive. Not only did the conference - once without a dissenting volco accept the edict abandoning- polygamy , but It readopted the original arti cles of faith , ono of which requires that the church shall bo subject to the constituted authorities nnd there was public recognition given to tlio supremacy of the laws ngahut polygamy which have boon declared constitutional by the supreme court of the United Stiles. This would seem to put an end to this troublesome and perplexing question , which has been a source of agitation for more than a quarter of n century , and It Is a , matter upon which the country Is to bo heartily conitratulatod. It is a notable victory of law nnd of public sen timent which is of the highest value as a lesson nnd an example. The contest has boon n prolonged one nnd It Iris boon marked by incidents and circum stances on both sides which the calm and sober judgment of history will con demn , but the inevitable outcome has boon reached In the triumph of tin over whelming public opinion , which in this country must always eventually have Its way. As to the motives that prompted this action of the Mormons It is not important to inquire. If they have honestly and sincerely renounced polygamy that is enough , and wo cannot see how there can longer bo n reasona ble ) doubt that such is the case , The laws , however , will bo preserved , at least until the country shall become con vinced that they can be of no further service. Monmvhllo the action tnkon by the Mormon church , in removing the chief It not the only ground of opposi tion toll , oughtto have results benefi cial to tlio material Interests of Utah nnd to nil classes ot the people of that territory. OU01IT TO I't.KASi : B mi r/IOD V. National bank circulation continues to con tract nttho Mto of about * iCKXWn ) ( month. This inity bo agreeable ii'iva to monuy Iciul- urs , until d003 not gratlly common folU Woria-iterattt. Why noIV The common folks , nota bly the members of the Farmers' Alli ance , have made the demand tor the retirement of tlio national bank circula tion ono of their cardinal doctrines. To BCO it contracting at a pico : that the } \'orld'IIcruld \ evidently regards as speedy ought to fill them with a sense of pleased emotion. Especially should this bo true when It is realized that the government , under the workings of the new silver bill , is issuing- silver certifi cates ttt the rnto of nearly five million dollars per month. Subtract thoamount withdrawn from circulation by the banks nnd wo hnvo a total increase of nbout throe million dollars per month , or thirty-six million dollars per year. This would amount to un increase oE more than fifty cents porcapitafor ovcry year that the law remains In operation. Have the people who domain ! thsit the bank notes bo withdrawn and the circu lation per capita Increased any fault to find with the republican party for these results ? Furthermore , wore the Worlil- JlmtWs remarks made for the benefit of the masses ; or them asses ? Tin : FMiMKiis" muK roucr. A vote for the independent ticket Is a , vote thrown away. This fact is ns ap parent today to the observer of state politics as it will bo three weeks from today In the returns of the election. The republican who votes with the independ ents , like the republican -who voles with the third party prohibitionists , shoots into the ranks of his friends nnd wounds his own causo. Only hia enemies can hope to benefit by his independent course in this campaign , TnuBKHstands today where it has slood during all the yours of its ox > istonco. It believes In most of the prin ciples which undorly the alliance move ment. It has fought for them consis tently and persistently whenever an op portunity lias been presented during the last Vwo decades. The independent orator tor mny find a great many models oC earnest apical for railroad regulation , for government ownership of tlio tele graph , and for numerous other measures aiming at the proper control by the people plo ot corporate monopolies , in the files of THE BKK. The present undoubted strength of the reform sentiment in this state owes much to the- work which this newspaper has done In that direction. Eut THE BKE has never encouraged a third party movement as the best means to accomplish these great ends. It has always favored reform within the party , and it believes today that the success of the p resent movement can only bo found through the powerful channels of the old party organization. Look at the situation. The total vote of Nebraska three weeks hence will bo about two hundred nnd ten thousand. " \Vithfourstntotlckets \ in the field , at least eighty thousand will bo required for the success of the independent nom inees. Kb reasonable man , familiar with the state of the campaign , willdaro to predict that the alliance can beg-in to muster any such vote. Buta vote smaller "by many thousands might defeat the re publican state ticket. That , indeed , is the only result the independent cam paign may reasonably bo said to threaten to accomplish. And what would that moan ? Simply that ainovementhonestly undertaken in the interest of reform , by dissatisfied republicans , had ended by putting tlio democrats into the state capitol and by making- wide broach in the lines of the solid republican west. Tlio republican farmers who had helped to achieve this result would have no cause for rejoicing. They would rather have multiplied their woes. Their present demand for reform , ns well ns the grand old party through which their ideas have dominated the country for twenty-live years , -would have gone down In a common disaster. It would bo an occasion for democratic jubilation , but no man who looks to the alliance movement as tho'hopo of re form , and certainly no man who has u drop ot republicanism in his veins , could view the result except with shame and disappointment. The true policy for the republican fanner in the present campaign Is to stay with the party which ho has served , and which has served himoversineotho , history of. Nebraska territory blended Into the history of this great state. It is n party wnicli ho can control by virtue ofthosuperiornumbcrof his votes. It Is a great oaglno of power , and hia hand should bo upon the throttle. It can furnish the moans , if ho makes the most of it , by which ho can arrive at his destination on schedule time. If the republican farmers of Nebraska will lend tholr powerful aid to the elec tion of Mr. Klchards and nts colleagues , and , further , if they will see to it that the logiblaturo is controlled by earnest nnd honest men who agree with them on the main questions at issue , they will have cause to loolc forward hopefully to the work of the next state government. TUB UHK believes a government BO con stituted will do all in its power to ro- nllzo the reforms needed and demanded by the producers of this Btato. But to allow the democracy to enter into power through n breach in the republican ranks will avail the members of the al liance nothing. It will mean a state government marked by confusion , blun der nnd defeat. PiSTTV wrangling- senseless squab bling marks the relations of the board of health nnd the city council. The former begs for means to enforce rules and regulations. The latter responds by de nouncing the board as n useless para lytic. So It goes from week to weolc. Meanwhile there Is no denying the fact that .contagious disease prevails to n serious o.xtoiit , nnd energetic measures must betaken to flarap It out. The council refuses to grant the pittance re quired , on t.ho lofty ground that the board is extravagant. Shades of the Dodlln haul , has It come to this ? Back of thnriinRccmly wrangle rrsts a Bolllsh mollvp. The council must con trol the expenditure of the money nnd make the boerrt of honlth the valet ot tlio combine , alt is llmo this senseless work wiis stoBped. The health nnd se curity of thojcoplo | demand that mem bers of the foimcll rise above potty quib bles and strengthen the hands of the board in this.ouiorgcacy. TUB folly of lavishing privileges and benefits on . franchUed' corporations is strikingly Illustrated in the mutter ot ropavlng the ? Eleventh street viaduct. The right to use this structure ) wtis almost forced ou the street car company. LVovlous to the consolidation , the old company declined to touch it except as a free gift , but when the right to cross wasnboutlo bogivciito the motor people , the former changed front and was will ing to pay for the privilege. This spasm of gonoroslty was promptly strangled when the fln.nl consolidation took place. The benefits conferred on the com pany by the free use of the via duct are Incalculable. Yet tlio company refuses to bear a share of the expense of ropavlng the structure. Its cool Indif ference to the request of the city may servo to open the eyes of the council to the reckless folly of voting away the rights of the people without adequate compensation or restriction. AnuANeiHMKXTS have boon completed for a joint debate between the republi can anel democratic candidates for con gress in the First district. The people In ovcry county will thus bo trivoa a chance to hear the Issues of the cam paign thoroughly discussed anel judge for themselves which represents thobe&t Interests of the country. The result of the discussion can not fall to materially increases the republican majority. Mr. Council represents the progressive polit ical spirit of the times , the spirit that in- spiral sind carried to splendid fruition the development of the country's re sources during tno past quarter of a cen tury. Mr. Bryan represents a party of promises , of glittering generalities , ot words instead ot deeds , tlio party tersely described by Senator In galls as "tho po litical street walker of the century. " No intelligent voter will hesitate in choos ing between the living present and the dead past. _ IT will bo u. hundred fold more diflieult for the prohibition searchers in prohibi tion states to locate "holes in the wall'1 after the government ceases to demand special tax stamps from dealers , as the new tariff law provides. Ilerctoforo the searchers have elopendcd largely upon revenue ollicers' hooks and records to lo cate them , Kvpry "suspect" will suffer from searches when the now law takes effect , so also rail the taxpayer suffer. There is no doubt hut the new law will multiply tho.numbor of illicit dealers and bootleggers. These who are in clined to sell intoxicants may then go from town to town , sell thoirgoods and boat a prosecution by putting themselves outside the jurisdictions of local ofli- coraovory few days. the next twelve months stops will have to bo taken to replace the rickety wooden' bridge that spans Six teenth street under the pretense of being a viaduct , with a. substantial structure capable of accommodating tlio heavy anel constantly increasing traffic bo- twccn South Omaha nnd Omaha. By that time the city will bo in condition to actundcrstandiiigly , The Tenth street viaduct , which will bo completed before the end of Dccombor , will enable us to judge -what Is best and safest for the various railroad crossings that must from time to time bo provided as the city grows. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Sl'EAiviN'G ot tlio so-called decrease of taxes in Kansas , a republican convert to the resubmission movement declared in a , public meeting ; "Prohibition de creased my taxes. W hen I came to the state several years ago I paid taxes amounting to ono hundred and forty- seven dollars a year. Two years ago my taxes amounted to ninoty-sovcn dollars , and this year I didn't pay any , for the mortgage and loan company paid them for mo. This may bo a mercenary view to take , but the struggle for broad and butter -was also mercenary. " KRM is ranking no impression on the honest farmers of the Third district. Ho was nominated because ho could make a noise on the stump , Now that alliance men have had time to analyze the noise they have discovered that It contains none of the elements of statesmanship. This fact Is nowhere bettor mulcrstood than among Kern's neighbors In Custcr county. IIo Is there a leader without a following , and , oven in the extremities of the big district , where distance might bo expected to lend some enchantment , the following Is gelling to bo very weak and forlorn.

Prohibition In Kansas. rllfimfu i'Diiitiltiiilon. They are having trouble In Kansas over tlio prohibition law. In Lo.tvcaworth county writs were recently granted to the city mar- slialunder tlioiuilsanco i-laitso of the prohib itory law , empowering him to search all places where Intoxicating llquow were sold and to seize tlio furniture and buildings. H Is said that ths mirshal Is n strong pro hibitionist.

Hut this city mawliat was not satisfied with thosclxuro of one ordinary dwelling house.
