IT UEHOOVKS Omiiha to build n great , hotel and got in line for the conventions of 1800. WE Ann shocked to observe that Mr. D.ma'a pupor advertises Cleveland Bak- lurj Powder. TIIK great prize fights and national convention canards are wearing on an oxcltublo man's brain.

"BVKIIYTHINQ comoa to him who waits , " and it is possible that wo shall have a eolid week of sunshine before the twentieth century dawns. TIIK Board of Public Works and the city council have pot together at last nnd all good citizens will rejoice. Their concerted action will pave the way to pavo. THK great majority of European na tions have consented to take part in the world's international silver conference und the success of that great body is ( insured.

IT TUUNS out that Chicago's smallpox patient is a. Philudolnhhin , and this fact Is pointed to as an evidence that Phila delphia people are not , after all , too Blow to catch anything.

IT IB well known that the wives of m- vantora us a rule do not believe that the Inventions of their husbands are of much account , but the public will bo surprised to learn that Mrs. Edison prefers candles to any other form of household illum ination. IT IB interesting to hear men talk about "stampeding" the Minneapolis convention. The day for that sort of thing is past. Emotional enthusiasm i& Bt a discount now and cool deliberation will govern the ropubllsans in the work of Boloctlng a candidate. THOSK who are doing the crying act about Omaha are certainly not these who ever aided in building it up.

A DINNKU sot made by Tiffany cost Mr. Mackay $95,000 , and it Is said that no sovereign In Europe oats from such gorgeous plato.

From this time forward the Nebraska World's fair commissioners will need to push the work they have to do with greater vigor than has yet boon shown in order that this state ahull have a creditable exhibit tit Chicago. Wo have no criticism tomako upon the com missioners. They have doubtless done all that it was practicable to do up to this time. The state has bnon divided into districts and progress has boon made in the preliminary work ot organ izing. There has boon something done in the matter of arousing popular in terest and creating a sentiment that Ne braska must not bo outdone by other western states in making an adequate display of her products. In thosoi ro- spccts the commission has perhaps done All that could reasonably bo expected of It , Everybody now sees that the appro priation mmlo for Nebraska's exhibit was too small. At luaat double the amount ought to have boon provided , and the ncccssltv for practicing the greatest prudence in expenditures handicaps the work of the commission. There are some things it Is desirable to have done which muni remain undone because the oxpondlturo they would in volve cannot bo spared , and it would not bo safe to do them und depend upon the next legislature for an additional appropriation. The legislature will bo asked for moro money for this pur pose nnd very likely will provide it , but the commission cannot tuka this for granted and incur pecuniary obligations beyond the amount it is authorized to uso. It ia unfortunate that a moro liberal view of what was necessary did not prevail - vail with the last legislature , but as it is , the World's fair commissioners must do the best they can with the money that has boon allowed them for proaaring an exhibit , trusting to the next legislature to provide moro money for carrying out such plans as may safely bo postponed until next year. In any event the liberality of prlvnto enterprise will have to bo largely do - ponded upon to secure for Nebraska such an exhibit as it it desirable she should have , and undoubtedly there will bo no risk in doing this. Many manu facturers und some of the moro prosper ous producers will not hobitato to con tribute to a purpose which there is every reason to bqjjovo will have results highly advantageous to tlio future prog ress and prosperity of Nebraska , and the cities and towns of the state having important industries might very properly - orly provide a part of the money nec essary to make un adequate exhibit of such industries. It cannot bo too strongly urged upon our people thnt Nebraska must have such a display at the Columbian ex position as , will fitly illustrate the splen did capabilities of the state , and of which Nebraskans visiting the exposi tion will have reason to bo proud. It would bo bettor not to bo represented at all than to have a cheap and inadequate exhibit. The millions of visitors to the World's fair will bo favorably impressed or otherwise regarding the relative capabilities of the states according to the character of their displays , so that the states which make the host showing of their products und resources will reap the largest rewards. It will bo the op portunity of the next half century for the west , and Nebraska must take the fullest possible advantage of it. HARRISON AND TIIK COI.OllSD MKK. The attempt to disparage President Harrison in the respect nnd confidence of the colored men of the country has fulled. It was a reflection upon the in telligence and the gratitude of that class of our citizens to assume that it would not fail. The colored men who take an interest in political affairs , ana the number of such is largo and stead ily increasing , watch with keen and , zealous interest the course of political leaders toward their raco. They have1 the infirmities common to humanity , but they cannot bo deceived as to who are their friends and who are not They know what has boon done for them nnd can estimate as accurately as anybody the motives that prompted it. They are a grateful people uud do not forgot these who have treatou thorn fairly and have honestly endeavored to secure thorn justice under the laws. When an attack was recently made on President Harrison in the house of rep resentatives , charging that he had not given the colored race adequate recog nition in public affairs , it was resented by the ono colored member of that body. Slnco then prominent leaders of the colored race have expressed themselves regarding the president , and such men as Fred Douglass , ox-Senator BrucoCon- gressman Choatbain and ox-Congress man Lynch emphatically declare that President Harrison is in every way worthy of the confidence of the colored voters of the country. There is but ono colored man of prominence who has pro claimed opposition to the president , and that is John M. Langston of Virginia , but diEKntisfnction with everything politically has long been a chronic condition with Langston. It Is his way" of securing attention to himself. It is possible that ho may bo able at Min neapolis to infect some of the colored delegates with his disease , but there will bo stronger men of his race there to counteract his influence. No man who is familiar with the pub- He record of President Harrison will question for u moment hit sincere solici tude for the interests and welfare of the colored raco. Ho has never failed on any proper occasion to demand for them civil and polltic.il justice , and no public man of today has advocated their cause as citizens , entitled to the same rights under the law ui are accorded to whlto citizens , in stronger or more explicit language than has boon used by the president So far its the matter of giv ing recognition to the colored man in publlo ulTulra is concerned , If thnt bo the proper criterion by which to judge of n president's friendly Interest in the rneo , it can DO claimed for President Htirrison that ho has shown moro con sideration for the colored race than an- ' of his predecessors. It la obviously the purpose of the opposition - position to the president's ronomlnatlon to bring till the Iniliionco they can com- mund to boar upon the colored delegates to Minneapolis In the Interest of Borne other candidate , but if they accomplish anything they must find another argu ment than is involved in thochurgothat President Hurrlson has failed to show a proper consideration for , lho colored citizen ? of the country. Thtit chnrgo has already boon overwhelmingly re futed. EXPOSmoff I'llfU'A HATtOXA As the time for the oponlng of the Ne braska state exposition * in Omiha np- proaohos Itbpcomosmoro apparent from day to day that the enterprise Is hap pily conceived nnd that the plans will bo successfully carried out. The en thusiastic interest taken by manufac turers in ovcry part of' the state shows that there is no giound for the fear that the exposition will prove to bo too much monopolized by this city to bo repre sentative of the enterprises and re sources of the state at largo. In fuel it would seem as if the exhibitors from other towns are oven moro keenly alive to the Importance of the exposition than the Omaha people themselves. They look upon it na a state institution in the broadest sense nnd feel thnt they are as much responsible for Its success as If they were carrying- their business in this city. This la the right aplrlt , jind. as enthusiasm is always contagious U Is to bo expected that every town in Ne braska will bo adequately represented. Thia will not only promote a healthy' ' rivalry on the part of the exhibitors but will also stimulate local pride among the people and insure a great popular inter est throughout the Btato which will re sult in n largo attendance at the ex position. As an educator the exposition will oxe.t a wide influence. It will give the people of every section of the state an : opportunity to learn what Nebraska is doing upon the line of industrial trade and progress and will open their eyes to the many advantages to bo derived by them from the development of the inter ests represented. Everything that tond-\ to such development also tends to the advancement of other interests , and every man who attends the exposition and thus lends oncour.ijromont to manu facturing and trade enterprises in Ne braska will himself bo an indirect gainer. The wide interest already man ifested shows thnt this view of the case prevails throughout the Btato. To Omaha people , many of whom nro totally unacquainted with the progress that is being made by other towns , the exposition promises to bo a revelation. It will prove to them that the spirit of enterprise is as wide as the state and that manufacturing and trade interests are taking wonderful strides in every town where they have been established. Prompt and vigorous work in arrang ing the exhibits iasuggcBted , and of this there is need. Care should bo taken that the opening day shall not find some of the exhibitors unprepared. The im portance of having the exposition open in perfect order will bo appreciated when it is remembered that the lirst iraprob- slons of visitors will have an influence upon the success of the undertaking. TKADK AXD LHQISLATION. The rapidity with which tradomnd commercial organizations have spread in the United States during the past few years may bo taken as an evidence that they are serving the various pur poses for which they are designed. Not the least important of the objects of boards of trade , chambers of commerce and kindred bodies made up of business men is to influence legislation in the interest of the people at largo , and the results which they have achieved in this direction have boon and will doubt less continue to be uniformly beneficial to the musses. A resistor of the com mercial organizations of the whole country is kept by the Now York Board of Trade nnd Transportation. It shows that there are 1,000 bodies of this class now in existence in the various states and torritorioi Throe years ago there were , according to the report of the bureau of'statistics , only 500 organiza tions of this character. That their number should have moro than doubled in so short n time shows that their advantages have boon widely recognized. Now YTork heads the list of states with 150 , Massa chusetts has eighty-nine , Pennsylvania ' eighty-two , Ohio sixty-eight , and other states follow-as a rule in the order of their population and the extent of their commercial interests. Nebraska is credited with only ton , but there are nineteen states and territories that have a smaller number. Although the chief function of these organizations is the promotion of com mercial prosperity in the communities whore they exist , their influence is often exerted in behalf of legislation in which the people at largo have a com- iron interest. They are entirely com posed of men whoso interests are inter dependent and who nro necessarily so licitous for the common welfare because their own prosperity is staked upon that- of the general public. Trade organiza tions are composed of elements so di verse that they could not combine In the interest of class legislation inimical to the common welfare If they should try to do so. Hence it follows that the recommendations of trade organizations have great wolght in congress and in the various st-ilo legislatures , and as their number grows this wholesome in fluence will bo extended. This is an era of commercial activity In which busi ness interests predominate ever all others , and every agency that helps business helps the people nt largo. But a chamber of commerce or u board of trade is not ulono influential in behalf of legislation directly related to mate rial prosperity. Such organizations may and often do bring their power to boar upon the makers of laws in the in terest of the publlo welfare in directions wholly unrelated to commercial affairs , nnd doubtless their usefulness will bo yet further extended as their represent ative character becomes moro gonorully recognized. The legislator who is guided in his action by the wishes of such or gan IzatloiiB cannot go far astray. TIIK more the Nebraska Central pro ject ia discussed the moro it will com mand itself to the support of every voter whoso first concern is for the progress and prosperity of Omaha. There 1ms not been a single valid argument ad vanced in opposition to this enterprise , und having moat carefully studied It from every point bTx-iOW Tlin DEK does not hosllalo to s 'yj.liat no argument of nny force or Validity c.xn bo urged against it. ThWdjbct contemplates giving to Omnhft'jyhiit it hns always needed in order-to feet the boat results from the nnturnl'iuiVantagea of its posi tion , and the safeguard ! are so ample that , the community lukcs no risk what soever. It Is itnjftjgfblo to conceive of a fairer propo3ltiou , xar > the company has miide , nnd all attempts to pick flaws in it will fall. The nVjpplo are giving the matter Intoiligcyl'iponsldoratlon , with a full undoratandinfftof the influences that nro bohlnd the opposition , nnd the pro- oct Is steadily growing In popular favor. the Union Pacific railroad was constructed Omihn was promised a union depot The foundation walls wa built 'way bxck In the ' 70s and then work was abindonod.

Thnt hope which springs eternal took a bull movement , Pinna were adopted , work was commenced , only to bo stoppnd when the outaldo walla had boon roared to the saoond story window-allls. Thu ? It is soon briefly that in all tlioao long , tedious years Omaha has grown to n population of 150,000 and the union depot is still iv matter of iho futuro. But the people of Omaha will lutvo a union dopot. Their voles on the bond proposition Juno 10 will prove that statement. And when .Jay Gould learns that another rail way company is building n union depot ho will probably conclude that the tfcno has arrived when the Unioa Pacific can profitably redeem its promises to the city. Tlin question of licensing gambling Is not ono which should have boon deter mined on the bcoro of expediency , or ivitli the idea of seeing how such n , plnu would work. Gambling is declared by the law to bo a. cr mo , and it is there by excluded from any wuch recognition as it receives under the licensing ordi nance. The plain duty of the authori ties la to suppress gambling instead of countenancing and tolerating it , and the assumption that its supurossion is im practicable cannot bo allowed to excuse or justify the ether courso. That which the law makes a crihio.must in all cir cumstances bo treated as a crime. A mistulco has bean-made , but it is not irremediable , nnd.lt ia incumbent upon all good citizens to oxdrt their influence to secure remedial Action as promptly as possible. i,1 Miss CLARA BARTON informs the pub lic that the Red'Cross ' society will receive - coivo no moro fobfl for distribution in Russia and recommends that grain and money bo sent to" Jljo flood sufferers in the south nnd west , of our own country.

WASHIXOTOX Utnunu or THE BBE , ) 51U FouiiTiiKNTii STIIRKT , v WASHINGTON- . O. , Juno 1. ) A. very black eye was glvon the nntl-llar rUnu tnovomont today by Mr. Blatno , wlio sntu Iti n private conversation with a State department oftlolal , wtion told thnt tun Mln- ncnpolls convention would nominate the secretniy otstnto ! "No sir , tlio convention will do DO such thlnp. I will not bo the uotnlnoo or that convention. " Ho said these words with so much nosttlvc- nosa thnt It impressed the under onicor vor.v much mid ho naked why ho was so sure of It , " 1 can only say , " continued Mr. . J3laino , "thai my name will not no before the AIluuo- npolls couvrntloii and 1 will not DO Its nomlnco. " This statement , mode onrly this morning , when taken with another incident , bus greatly depressed the rule or ruin urowd. This nfuirnoon Senator Quay called upon the secretary of stntp with the avowed pur pose , It Is stated , of either securing n line or two in Mr. Dlalno's own. handwriting to the effect thtttlf nominated under coruiln con ditions ho would not refuse , the words to bo used only under stipulated conditions in the convention , or n positive verbal stntoinent to the Pennsylvania senator thai under no con ditions would ho ( Mr. Blatno ) deollno the nomination before action was tmton by the convention. If neither ol these statements , written or verbal , could bo secured H was the purpose of the nntl-Harrison men to drop Mr. maine and try to defeat the president's ronoroinatlon bv placing a number of "fa vorite sons" before the convention and with holding n majority vote from the president. 'louiRbt these who hnvo talked to Senator Quar say no has unquestionably failed in his last mission. Illnlno TulIt Subsiding. The Dlalno talk for sorao reason has sud denly subsided , and the anils are rushing AlRor , Sherman , Allison and a half dozen other prominent names. But the name of Dtamo will bo played for what It is worth , for the palpable purpose now of using It as an Instrument against the president. There liavo boon all sorts of reports circulated at the capital today against the administra tion's strength. Ono was that Senator Sawyer of Wisconsin , who is one of the most Influential republicans in the west , had said , in view of the prominence of the Blaine boom and the opposition to the president , the safety of the party lay In a third man and that some other republican must bo the nomlnco. Senator Sawyer said of this ronort to Tun BEE correspondent on the floor of the senate this afternoon : "I have not only nor.glvon ut terance to such thought but I have not enter tained it. What I have said and what I have to say is that tbo safety of the party lies ID the president's renomlnatlon , and that under tne existing conditions a third or now name would bo very inadvisable. I am sure the president should and will bo ronomtnalod. " Another campaign Ho was circulated about the intentions of the California delegates to Minneapolis. It was stated that they would all vote for Blaine , whether ho was placed before the convention or not. Senator Pel- ton , one of the dologatos-at-lnrpo from Cali fornia , said to Tun BCK correspondent : "I believe every one of our delegation will sup port Harrison. " A number of prominent Harrison men were reported to havo" como over to the anti side when in fact it was nil raise. In ono in stance a dologato-at-largo who has a wiilo influence , was posted in n dissatch as being opposed to tbo president when in point of the fact ho intends to second tbo president's nomination. A report which can bo relied upon curno down Ironi Now York today to the olTcct that some representative labor men will visit Minneapolis and call attention to the fact that President Harrison has taken morn interest in and done more for labor than any man who has occupied the whlto Uouso in very many years , indeed , if over , mid that if organized labor is to bo depended upon the president should bo ronominatcd. I'rulgoil Harrison's Itcconl. Last night the district committee of tha associated leaders of Now York , represent ing several organizations with 8,000 mem bers , adopted resolutions praising the record of President Harrison , demanding his re- nomination at Minneapolis and pledging "tbo working and farmer vote in the United States to him as the candidate of the republi can party. " A delegation of six was ap pointed to present the resolutions to the Minneapolis convention. There will bo present at the convention representatives from all of the great labor organizations of the country , all demanding the rcnomination of the president. Thomas Wolf of this city will be among those and show what the president has done for his nation , the Germans and other adopted bloods In this country. General Edgar Alien , General Cronor and Colonel Brady , all unions the most prominent dele gates from Virginia , are In the city on their wny to Minneapolis , and say more thnn hnll of the old dominion delegates will stand by the nroslilont , Washington Is being rapidly depopulated of her republican politicians.
