Today the Incense of patriotic song
nnd panegyric will on volopo the memory
of "tho father of his country. " From
press nnd pulpit , platform and fireside ,
rise tributes to the immortal dcucls of
George Washington. The priceless
heritage ho loft to the oppressed of all
\iids 1 commands our gratitude. War
made him great , peace greater. Other
hands , it Is true , helped to rear the
foundation of liberty's temple. Other
mighty minds planned and reared tlio
superstructure * . Hut Washington's
achievements overtops all , as Shasta
towers above the surroundings , majestic
and unapproachable , .TcHorion was the
inspiration of the declaration ot Inde
pendence ; Hamilton was the incar
nation of the constitution ; Jackson beat
back the invaders at Now Orleans , and
Lincoln and Grant drove the knlfo to
the heart of slavery nnd made union
and freedom a reality ; Washington
was the embodiment of strength and
courage in war as well IIA tha anchor of
safety in the no loss trying period suc
ceeding the close ol the revolution.
Daso indeed would bo our gfatltudo did
wo not revere his memory , though wo
fail in emulating- virtues and heed
ing his precepts.
Whence did his gonlus spring ? A
majority of the saints in freedom's
calendar rose from humble beginnings.
The fathers in their youth enjoyed and
profited by royal favors shown tholr
ancestors. But In our time the mighty
names in civil and military life are those
of mon whoso beginnings wore of the
humblest. Lincoln was jostled with
poverty , yet by his own efforts , with the
dim Ilickcr of candle Hcht , ho laid the
foundation of an education that titled
him for the grnvo responsibilities so
grandly performed In manhood's years.
Grant tanned hides by day and strug
gled with the three Us by night. Gar-
Hold plodded the tow path of tv canal
and earned the wherewith to pay a
college course.
None of the great men in liberty's roll
of honor had a training like that of
Washington. As his achievements over
shadowed all others , so his occupation
in the ycard preceding the rove ution
dilTored from that of his contempor
aries and successors. There tire these
who believe his success In war and peace
hud Its foundation in his early environ
ments. Measured by the experiences
and triumphs of this atro , there arc sub
stantial reasons for believing that ho
who was "the first , the last , the best ;
the Olnclnnalus of the wo t , " was well
equipped for the fracas precipitated by
King George.
Washington was a real estate boomer !
Years before the boaom of war over
spread the land , and while vet a loyal
subject of the perfidious George , Wash
ington busied himself unloading broad
acrob on all comers. IIo was in the
vortex of the boom then raging along
the Ohio , and with characteristic fore
sight had becurod a tr.u-t of elegant
dimensions. His advertisement appears
in the lirbt pupor printed in Baltimore ,
the Murylaml Journal und Jiulliiiiore
Advertiser , August 20 , 177ii. In the
copious phraseology of diplomacy ,

by Washington at a time when such a

The United States senate has adopted
a resolution instructing the committee
on foreign relations to report such pro
visions of law as will empower tlio federal -
oral courts to try cases of criminal
olTersos against the subjects of foreign
governments domiciled in Iho United
States when involving the consideration
of international questions. Tbo com
mittee will also report such police and
judicial process as will enable the gov
ernment of the United Stated to use its
constitutional power to dollno and pun
ish crimes against treaty rightts con
ferred upon foreigners.
This resolution was callou out by that
portion of the president's message which
referred to the ' 'deplorable and dis
creditable incident of the lynching at
Now Orleans of cloven mon of Italian
nativity. " It could not , of course ,
apply especially to that occurrence , for
the reason that no law now passed by
congress would bo retroactive so as to
' i each these concerned in the Now
Orleans allair , but the design in view is
to give to the subject of a foreign power
with whoso government the United
States has reciprocal treaty relations
the same protection as is afforded to
our own citizen ? , ffnd for this purpose it
is proposed to give the courts of the
United States jurisdiction in such c iscs ,
instead of leaving the matter lo Iho
courts of the respective states.
In his last annual message President
Unrrison expressed the belief that it
would bo entirely competent for con
gress to make ottonses against the
treaty rights of foreigners domiciled in
the United States cognizable in the
federal courts. As it is the federal olli-
cors and courts have no power in such
cases to intervene either for the protec
tion of a foreign citizen or for the
punishment of his slayers. "It seems tome
mo to follow , " said the president , "in
this stale of the law , that the ofllcors of
the slate charged with police and judi
cial powers in such cases must , in the
consideration of international questions
growing out of such incidents , bo re
garded is such sense as federal agents as
to make this government answornblo for
their acts in cases whore it would bo
answerable if the United States hud
tibod its constitutional power to do fine
and punish crimes against treaty
rights. " The anomalous position of the
federal government in this respect was
very clearly brought out in connection
with the Now Orleans incident , and
there was a very general expression of
opinion that there ought to bo legisla
tion which would give the federal courts
power to take notice of and punish
offenses against treaty rights. Tlio con-
lonlion of our government has been thai
it can guarantee only such protection tc
the subjects of foreign governments
domiciled here as Is given to its own
citizens , but it would seem to bo obviotu
that In cases of offenses involving intm--
national questions the government oughl
not to bo , ns it now is , helpless to pro
tect these to whom it has accorded
treaty rights. Tlio welfare of Ameri
can citi/ons In forolgn lands , as well a ;
jusllco to the bubjects of oilier govern'
munts domiciled hero , may bo involved

The llrfit Important move In the pre
liminary woik of the national coiile ? !
of 1802 will bo mndo todny. The moot
ing of tlio Now York Hlato democratic
convention to select delegates to the na
tional convention , which will meet a !
Chicago in Juno , will command the at
tention of politicians throughout the
country. The holding of such a uoiiven
tlon at this time of Ihu year is a radical
innovation. It is without precedent ii
the pollllcnl history of Now York , and ,
so far as appears , of all Iho other states ,
It furnishes striking evidence of the in-
dlftoronco to usaga of the dominant fac
tion in the politic * of Iho Kmpiro ulatc
when It IIIIH an object to attain.
AH already annotincod. the convcnlior
will bo practically unanimous in favor o
David Bonnotl Hill as the candidate o
Iho democracy for president , Tin
score or to of dulogates who do not lavoi
him will cut nollguri ) whalovor In UK
proceeding * , even if they dulormlno tc
manifest opposition , Nor will any attun
tlon bo paid to protests. ThocommitUx
of lifly appointed to induce the st'ih
contra ! rommiUuo to chnngo tlio dati
for holding the convention , having falloi
to acc'omplibh anything , it Is altogotho :
curtain that it will al = o fail in its appea
lo Ihu convention. .Still , it will bo OK
innd to deliver the protest mil renew
the request ) ( } l4 n later convention , and
when this is dow ; it will take Us dopnrl-
uro and the convention will do its tip-
jiointed work1 , , .This moans that the del
egation to ChUi go will bo for Hill , that
the unit rule will bo adopted , and that
Iho delegation will adhere to the poli
tical fortunes of lllll so long as there
ippcurs to bo any prospect of his being
lomlnatcd. It is moro than probable
that the second choice of the delegation
will bo a wostoHt man who is not objec
tionable to Hilt. Of course nn effort
will bo mndo loprovont the delegation
selected by today's convention from tak
ing lls seal In Iho national body , but It
is hardly possible Ihat this can succeed.
Whatever may bo said about the policy
of calling a mid-winter convention , or
regarding the violation of usage and
uroccdetil , there can bo no question that
Lho convention at Albany today Is regu
lar and , therefore , the national conven
tion will bo bound to respect lls action.
The situation simply IH that Mr. Cleveland -
land has boon utterly routed In his own
slalo , and has boon shown lo bo hardly
an Important factor in the democratic
politics of Now York. IIo cannot hope
to rehabilitate himsolf. IIo Is still
strong elsewhere , though not generally
as strong as ho has boon , but if hiscnuso
ishopolossin the stale Ihat la absolutely
necessary to democratic success In the
nutional contest it matters not Ihat ho
is strong in other slates. The fact that
Hill will have the Now York delegation
does not , however , Insure him the nomi
nation. It will give him a very great
pull , undoubtedly , for It appears to dem
onstrate that ho would bo moro likely
than any other candidate to carry the
Kmpiro state , but his weakness elsewhere -
where will rccolvo duo consideration.
Tlio action of the Albany convention to
day will not render moro easy for the
democratic party the settlement of the
dilemma which confronts it.
Tin : democrats in congress oppobcd to
the free and unlimited coinage of silver
tire making every possible effort to pre
vent the party committing itself to that
policy at tlio present session. Their
latest step is a renewal of the effort to
got a caucus expression on the subject ,
but whether they will bo moro success
ful than before Is quobtionablo. Tt is
evident that the free coinage men are
determined to make the very best of
their opportunity , and it has become
steadily more apparent that the election
of Mr. Crisp to the spoakcrship was a
distinct victory for free coinage. How
strong the feolipg is between the fac
tions was shown iin the iiouso on Thurs
day in the controversy between Mr.
Bland , chairman of the committee on
coinage , woiglils and measures and
author of the free coinage bill , and Rop-
resenlalivo Ilurter of Ohio. It will
mnlco little difference , so far as Iho
democracy is concerned , whether this
issue is deferred' ' until the next session
or not. Tlio country fully understands
that the great majority of the party are
in favor of fico and unlimited silver
Tin : eonforonco of representatives of
the peoplo'n party * at St. Louis today
promises results that will be Interesting
to men of both the old parties. The
now movement in politics will bo largely
represented and the indications are not
favorable to complete harmony. There
is a considerable element hostile to the
proposition to put a national lickel in
the field , and this will probably made
itself hoard in vigorous terms. The
general impression is , however , that the
conference will result in a call for a
national convention to nominate a presi
dential ticket , and that the extreme
ideas of the leaders in the now move
ment will bo endorsed. In case it is de
cided to call a national nominating con
vention there is favorable promise that
Omaha will have the privilege' en
tertaining it.
Tin : democratic factions in Louisiana
have agieed upon a plan for the botllo-
monl of their differences , and the pros-
pec * , now is that the republicans will
have to moot a united and harmonious
democracy. The chief point of the
agreement is that both tickets shall bo
submitted to the primaries , the vniiiiinir
one lo bo the regular ticket at the gen
eral election and the otlior to bo with
drawn. This will occasion a hot con
ical , bul it will doubtless end in uniting
the faclions and keeping Louisiana un
der democratic control. Had the fac
tions remained at war republican suc
cess would have boon moro than proba
ble , and it v/us this outlook , doubtless ,
that induced Iho two senators from
Louisiana to go homo and talk for har

to crimson dory und undying fame In n hick
ory shirt , but the safest plnu would bo to

many knives are concealed In the bootlegs of
Nobraslta patriots mid n hickory shirt is not

Liberty Journal : Hosowator seems to bo
starting out with the determination that ho
will capture the state convpntion this year
nnd nominate u man for governor to suit hlj
own fancy. The republican party has had
enough of Koscwalor and will sit down upon
him. The rcople want Lieutenant Governor
Majors for the next governor nnd ho will be
the nominee of the republican state conven
tion. Kosowntor is not for Majors and this
Is the reason ho will have to take a back
Nebraska City News : Whether there Is
an extra session of the legislature called or
not , the News would ureo upon Governor
Boyd to have the books of the state ofllecrs
Irom Governor liutler down to the present
time thoroughly investigated. It is duo the
taxpayers of the state to show how the
olllclals In the past nave managed the affairs
In their ollleos. Governor IJo.vd is a practical
business man and with the aid of experts ho
ought to .show what has been done nnd toll
how the millions of acres Imvu uocn disposed
nnd how the millions of dollars raised by
taxation have been spent. Let the books bo
overhauled. Let in the light of day und let
us sco how the Hues have managed nlfiut-ii.
Exchange : Aggressive Journalism in
Omaha still continues to ho interesting. Mr.
Koscwator is stirred up by ihu repented as
sertions that Omaha defeated L. D. Itiohnrds
iu the last " gubernatorial campaign. "For
months1 ho says , "a cotono of political
ghost ditncors have designedly worked them
selves into a frcnzv over the bo called bc-
traynl ol Ulchards , " and ho continues , "for
these flesh-pot patriots Omaha is the hot bed
of nil political chicanery and treachery , nnu
the focus of all Jobuery and corruption , wdllo
Lincoln has alxvays boon loyal , honest and
entirely unselfish In the appropriation nnd
disbursement of state fundi. " There U a
strong suspicion that the "Ilcsh-pot patriots"
ro not as wldo of the mark as they might
Fremont Flalli TIIK OMUIV Dunlins become -
come impatient at the continual howl at
Omaha for the defeat of L. D. Richards nnd
goes nt work by facts and llcuros to provo
that It was notOmuha that defeated ulch
ards for governor but too very counties from
w Inch the majority of the bowlings originate ,
Thnt paper piovos that eastern Nebraska
was far more loyal to Richards than western
Nobraslta , notwithstanding the wall of the
"political ghost dancorb" who make night
hideous with their howls.
The article closes as follows :
'Hut why should this perpetual uproar bo
made about Richards i Why have the
fanatical ghost dancers said nothing about
the perlldv that dolcated Council , Dorsoy and
Hat-Inn I Is It not about time to slop tins cry
about Omnha being only for Omaha , In the
fnco of the fact that Bryan ol Lincoln carried
Uouclas county over Connell ) Is It not tlmo
for the ghost dancers nnd howling dervishes
to stop their insane ravings and lot the re
publican party prepare for thu coming strug
gle that will require harmonious and united
action I" _

to the communication from Genoa in Ti n

but will ny in reference to R , K. Pierre ,
that "ho was permitted to withdraw from
the ministry and membership of Iho Motho-
odist Upiseop.il church under grave chnrgoi"
the sama in occlosiastieal law ns being ox-
pclled. ) That since thnt withdrawal ho has
never boon reslorcd to cither the ministry or
membership of any church. Yet , ho know
ing this , hns many times performed the mar
riage ccrnmony und administered lu other
ollleos of tlio ministry In known violation to
all law and nil ecclesiastical custom.
Since nil this has come to light thiough
thu Investigations of Bishops Vinrnnt nnd
Goodnt-11 und others , It becnmu my duty lo
remove him from the pastornlo of the Genoa
