Tun Now York democrats are provid ing an abundance of cainnaicrn material of a luridly improBsivo character for re publican use next autumn. A CHAIN gang made up of city and county prisoners would relieve the city and county of a good doil : of expense if put at work upon streets and roads.

PAHKHUHST'S single- handed contest with the dcvil , in New York grows more and more interesting nnd its results more and more uncertain us the days go by. IF Tin : Interstate Bridge company fails to carry out its own scheme it will have itself to blame. Nobody has inter posed any obstructions thus far , but the bridge has not materialized. KANSAS CITY went democratic in her municipal election Tuesday. Kansas City has boon on the decline physically nnd financially for a your or two. Her morals seem also to bo debilitated. PKUHAi'S a more or loss esteemed contemporary will observe that if the advice of Tim BKK hud boon hooded more progress would have been re ported in the library enterprise by this time. WIIHN the Union Pacific or B. & M. capitalists and attorneys find fault with a proposition submitted to the citizens of this county it IB conclusive proof that they are not backing it morally or financially THE knives of the warring factions of the democracy are whetted to the keen est edge and tlio fight between the Boyd and Martin factions continues in teresting to republicans and uncertain to the contestants. OMAHA has always been unfortunate in one particular : Any sohomo proposed by Omaha men of financial standing is almost certain to bo opposed by other Onmhiv men of like financial standing. Our citizens have never learned to work together. _ _ THKRI ; is no good reason why the vagrants nnd other city prisoners should not bo compelled to earn their keeping by cleaning up alleys and performing ether public work , as suggested by Chief of Police Soavoy. THIS genial capitalists whoso interests nro bound up with the Union Pacific and B. < fc M. railroad corporations are not willing to submit the Nebraska Central proposition to the people. Everybody else is willing to trust to tiio judgment of the voters of iho city and county. Oviiii 8,000 persona in the oily of Omaha have signed the agreement pro- eontod by canvassers of the Manufac turers and Consumers association , pledging themselves to glvo home man- tifacturora the preference in nil pur chases of household goods , and the work goes bravely on. E members of the Manufacturers nnd Consumers' association should not forgot that the interest in their move ment can bo sustained only by untiring biTort , Every mooting of the associa tion ehonld bo well attended and the unthuslnsm of the manufacturers thorn- Eolvos kept ntn whlto heat. THK city council is to bo commended for reconsidering its action on the park propositions and adopting ono innlclo park. AB there will probably bo money enough realized from thu sale of the pack bonds for the purpose , the park commissioners should recommend at least ono other Insldo park to the coun- pll. THK QVKSTIOff OF PRICKS. In the course of his brilliant and elo quent speech on the tariff In the house last week Representative Dollivor of Iowa repeated the challenge to the dem ocrats , which had previously boon made by Representative Dlngluy of Maine , to name a single article the retail price of w'.iich hnd bnon advanced by the tar iff act of 1SIK ) . In response four articles wore named pocket knives , pearl but tons , linen goods Mid tin plalo. Said Mr. Dollivor : "Four articles Imvobeen named in a houseful of representative business men from every quarter of the United States. I do not intend to dis cuss these four articles hero. I am going to turn thorn over to ether gentlemen , or bettor still , leave them to the actual knowledge of the shoppolng public , which will thoroughly explode what Is left of the humbug and pretense that prices Imvo increased slnco 18'JO. ' " Was it not romurkablo , in view of the persistent assertion of the democrats , f om Mr. Cleveland to the least of them , U'dt the present tariff has increased the price to consumers of nearly everything in common ut-o , that the democratic representatives in congress could name only four articles as having advanced in price under Iho act of 1890 ? And as v tnattar of fact the articles named are not higher now than they wore before the present tariff act wont into effect , taking all grades together. As to pearl juttons , Mr. Dollivor referred to the 'actory ' in Omaha and slated that It Is "today turning out as good an article as was over made in the world , and for a ewer urico , nnd the establishment of that industry has already , by the enlist ment of American genius in a now enterprise , invented processes of manu facture that promise to maKe the old prices of pearl buttons a more reminis cence. " With regard to tin plate it Is a fact which may be verified by refer ence to the quotations that Iho imported article is lower in Now York today than it over was. It is true the charge is made that the foreign manufacturers are neb shipping over as good an arti cle as formerly , but tit any rate the truth is that tin pinto is not higher than before the present tariff. Every buyer of linen goods knows they are sold as cheaply now as two years ago. The assertion of Mr. Cleveland , in his Providence speech , that the consumers of the country nro oppressed by the tariff net of 1890 is rot sustained by the facti. Any fair comparison of prices now and eighteen months ago will show that a great majority of the articles in common use are no higher than when the tn. ! iff act wont into effect and that the price of some has declined. Men of practical affairs , who study the markets , cannot bo deceived by the charge that the tariff act of 1890 has increased the price of articles of general use. TO COXDttMN 1'AttKS. In answer to an inquiry from Mayor Bemis , City Attorney Council gives it as his opinion that the charter grants to the city government authority to con demn lands for parks nnd boulevards , and also authority to assess their cost against property benefited. This is an important interpretation of the law , for it menus that the city can solcct exactly such lands as are deemed most desirable and condemn them. An appraisal by three disinterested ap praisers would in all probability greatly reduce tlio cost of the tracts selected , and our $400,000 in bonds can bo made to cover moro land and land better suited to the requirements of the city. Wo never cnn and never will have a well planned system of parks and boule vards unless wo oxoroiso the right of eminent domain and secure exactly what is wanted at the lime it is wanted. A chain of parks and boulevards connect ing each ether and laid out upon grounds most suitable is essential to such a sys tem. The time will never come when every owner of grounds needed for sueli a purpose can bo induced to part with them at reasonable prices. There is no merit in the claim that wo must go on regardless of this power now because the council has ratified the choice of lands made by the park com missioners. The people voted blindly upon the question so fur us special tracts wore concerned trusting to the mayor and council and the park commissioners to act upon business principles and do their duty. They want tlio best lundb they can secure for the least money and do not euro who owns thorn. The coun cil and park commissioners will be justi fied in accepting the opinion of the city attorney. It does not follow that the tracts al ready selected shall bo uoandonud. It will bo naturally expected , however , that those lands will bo condemned in the legal way and that tlio city shall piiy for them only what three dis interested appraisers pronounce thorn to be worth. It is quite probable that the city can save enough by this course to add at least ono more inside park to the system , nnd can also safely undortuko to condemn ground for boulevards. If the owners of the land are not satisfied with the appraisal of the city authorities they can appeal to the district court. OMAHA MUST DO It Is high time that our citizens awake to the fact that paralysis is akin to death. No city can stand still. She must either progress or rotrocrrado. There can he no neutral ground. The only hope for obtaining commercial supremacy at thin point and the onlj chance for increasing our business in dustries Is by enterprise from within. Capitalists from abroad will not invest in a city whoso citixons show by tliolr conduct that they huva no confidence in her future. Now that the spring is opening a number of local enterprises are Doing talked up. Principal of those in point of iraporiunco and amount of money to bo expended is the Nebraska , Central railway. Dl cusslon of the features of the proposition made by the Omaha gontlonion who compose this company has awakened interest in ether direc tions. If for no ether reason , the gon- tleinon making the offer to build this road and its double track bridge deserve the thanks of the community. Wo want a few more bro.id-gaugo propositions. The people of Omaha cannot bo nwuk- onod from their lethargy by anything pxcopt extraordinary schemes for the welfare of the city. Once aroused and set to work wo have the faith to believe that an Impetus will bo given to enter prises now sleeping nnd that this very rear will see some of the old-time en ergy ngaln manifested In Ouiaha affairs. THK CA.VI'AIUN AUAtXST 1111,1 * The friends of Mr. Cleveland In Now York are waging the campaign against Ills adroit and uncompromising rival with great vigor. The mooting hold In Buffalo , the former homo of Cleveland , nnd supposed to bo ti Hill stronghold , demonstrated by the largo attendance that the ox-prcslclcnt bus still many supporters there. The speeches were most unsparing In tliolr denunciation of [ lilllnin. Ono of the speakers declared that within the p'ist three months Hill : iad boon for tariff reform and against : t , had been for the free coinage of sil ver and against it , and characterized lilm as n "burlesque politician , " who "kicks and twists , and turns and bows , nnd smirks and throws kisses at the po litical baldheads , when nil the while ho Is only making an indecent exposure of liimsolf ns a political street walker , of fering himself body and soul r.t the low price of a vote or a delegate. " "Tho people. " further declared the sueakor , "aro not prepared for ashifty , shuflllng. equivocal , prevaricating candidate for the highest honor in their gift. Prom the shifty , paltorliig , tnlscliiof-muking demagogue , they turn with abounding confidence to the safe , strong and stead fast democrat who stands square to every wind that blows , who cares not to be great , but rich in honest , noble ser vice to the state. " This sort of raillery may not bo admirable , but it is ox- prossivc and shows the strong and in tense feeling of these democrats In Now York who nro antagonizing the presi dential ambition of Hill. It it useless to think of harmonizing this faction with the clement that acknowledges the lead ership of Hill , and this consideration will have Its influence upon the national convention. Ex-Secretary Fatrchild said at the Buffalo meeting that nobody proposed to bolt the nomination , but ho is a very poor politician if ho believes that any considerable number of the friends of Hill would support Cleveland , and it is extremely doubtful whether ho would himself support Hill. The indications are , however , that Hill is already out of the race. There is nowhere any manifestation of hearty interest in his cause , and there is reason to believe that ho is finding it something of a tusk to hold his Now York friends together. It has been reported that some of the Tammany men wore ready to desert him , and there are evidences that the Hill machine is not working as smoothly as its managers could desire. But It does not appear that this ten dency to desert Hill is necessarily in the interest of Cleveland. The men Who were instructed and pledged to the former by the convention of February 22 , and who share with him the censure of the hostile faction , will not go to the ox-president under any circumstances. They will prefer a candidate from eomo ether state than Now York , and it is said that if ho finds ho has no chance for the nomination Hill will endeavor to control the delegation in the interest of Senator Gorman. The situation does not grow any less Dorploxing for the democracy. There is no doubt that the masses of the party prefer Cleveland , but the shrewd , poli ticians understand that without har mony in Now York his nomination would bo fatal , and there Is hardly a possibility that the factions there can bo harmonized. The ono thing that now seems practically assured is , that Hill will not bo the candidate. OuDiNAiuiA'it is not safe to judge of the drift of political feeling from the re sults of municipal elections , but they are fairly to bo regarded ns having a greater significance in this respect in presidential than in ether years. If this bo granted the republicans may find much encouragement in the town cleo tions of this year. Those in Now Yo-k early in the spring showed generally notable republican gains , in some cases cjramunitics which hnd uniformly been democratic for years electing republican candidates. Such changes denote the operation of political inlluoncos. The city and town olcctions just hold In Ohio indicate that the republicans of that state Imvo been gaining strength slnco the general election of last your , the party showing an Increased vote in a number of placed. Of course there has not been a doubt Unit thq electoral vote of Ohio will be given to the republican presidential candidate , but none thu loss it is interesting to find the party there growing , because it shows that the free trade and free silver principles of the democracy are not acceptable to Intelli gent voters. In Michigan the repub licans Imvo also made gains , but it ap pears that this wus not duo altogether to politics. Unquestionably Michigan is a republican state , but under the now plan of * choosing presidential electors the republicans cannot got thu full elec toral vote of the state. In Illinois and Minnesota party lines vroro not gener ally drawn , and the same Is true of the town and village elections in Nebraska. It is interesting to note that in this state a majority of license tickets wore elected. MA YOU Br.Mis calls the attention of the city council to section 69 of the charter - tor and advises that an ordinance bo passed at an early day for carrying out Its provisions. This boctlon of the charter is us follows : "Tho mayor nnd council ahull have pou-orto establish and maintain publio libraries , reading rooms , art galleries and museums , and to provide the necessary grounds or buildings thorofor ; to purchase books , papers , maps , manuscripts and works of art , and objects of natural or scientific curiosity and Instruction thorofor , and to receive donations and bequests of monov or property for the satno in trust or otherwise. They may also pass 11000.1- sary by-laws and regulations for the pro tection and government of the sumo. " RKPOHTS from South Omaha as the election progressed on Tuesday indi cated a deep interest on the part of the participants. The fact that Sheriff Bennett nott and thirty or moro deputies went to tlio scene of action early in the day gave further color to the startling reports re- stirred up about the only bad blood shown. The sheriff very cleverly man aged the mattorV to avoid friction anil ntood to the dutvjwhich ho not out for himself at the request of reputable citi zens. The election , though spirited , was orderly , and judging from the ex pressions of the host citizens of the sub urb , its results are highly satisfactory. TlH5 Hun congratulates South Omaha upon the fact that nothing occurred to mar the peaceful character of the elec tion or the good name of the city. Foil the year ending Juno 30 , 1890 , the imports of woolen goods amounted to $50,582,000. For the year ending Juno ! 10 , 1691 , they wore $41,000,000 , a decrease of $15,622,000. Upon this fact a free trade paper aiguos that the American people wcro robbed of more than $15.522,000 , because they wore de prived of the privilege ot buying foreign woolens by "tho prohibitory McKlnloy tariff. " Such idiocy as this ought to bo transparent to the most casual ro.tdor. The people bought as much woolen goods In 1891 us In 1890 beyond doubt. The imported goods are not donated to purchasers since this $15,522,009 has boon kept nt homo and has boon paid for American woolens. Instead of bewail ing the reduction ot imports n patriotic newspaper should rejoice in the fact that in woolens alone this largo sum was saved to Americans In a single year. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ YOUNO men In politics is rognrdcd as a promising sign of the times by a half- baked democratic editor in Omaha. Bless his fresh , confiding soul , the young man has always been In politics , from the dtvva of David in Israel to the present tlmo. The most brilliant politicians of our colonial period wore men under 25. Hamilton was a leader at 19 and secre tary of the treasury at 29. Thomas Jef ferson wrote the Declaration of Indu. pondonco when ho was less than 3lt years of ago. John Qulncy Aduins was min ister to Holland at 27 and was a United States senator nine yo\rs : later. Ilonry Clay began his political career at 22 , and ho was a senator before ho was 30 Calhoun entered congress when ho was only 28 years old. AVobstor was a con gressman at 31. , SENATOR MAN KHSON'S fight in the senate for military agents for the Indian reservations is so persistent and bitter us to occasion remark. The In dian agency system is far above the average moralepi [ | ; half dozen or inoro years ago and it is therefore the more singular that * ho'v ' and other senators should inako sO'V.hjorous an attack upon civilian agents just at this time. THIS ordinance creating the ofiico of city electrician bhould not fail upon any account. Tlmt rnfc'olini ; Too.

In most cities the commission business Is centralized In some ono locality as a mutter of convenience to the trade , but In Omaha this has never been done. Another object which tin commission men tmvo in vlow Is the lowering of rents , The character of their business Is such that it Is not noccssary to Imvo a location on n promlnout business street where rents are high.

The vote taken today upon a motion to strlko out the provision failed by n nmjor- Ity of 5 , the snmo ns It failed last week. Tlioro wcro some changes In the vote , but the result was the same , nil of the western republican senators voting to strlko out except - copt Mandorson , Wilson , Washburn nnd Davis.

Ho wont into the foundation ot the Sioux troubles of 181K ) nnd 1891 and hold that it was duo to n lack oi appropriations by congriss , an Insufficiency of provisions , growing out of the parsimony of the demo crats. Senator Allison said ho coulili see no moro reason Tor assigning army ofllcors tenet net as Indian agents thnu for detailing them to act in the capacity of secretary of the senate or ns Its clerks nnd other olllcors. Ho opposed the very principle of roijulrlng or suffering army ofllcers to do civil duty anywhere. Ho said there might have boon at some time In the history of the country some oxcusu for doing this thing. It might have boon necessary In 1S3I when It was lirst done , for nn Indian war was threatened. It would bo Justus proper to detail nnny ofllcors to collect Internnl revenue or customs duties. Ho named a nuuiher of tribes of Indians whom there was no hostile possibilities nnd asked what military necessity there was for detailing army ofllcers to net as agents for the Indians.
