TUB doublo-endor. In Us great act of

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.

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

IIo next turned his attention to ono of the
