This is a celebration year for America and Omaha should bo as loyal as any other city. THKSK are big days for the Polsom family. "Uncle Ben1' sold his lot in Omaha for $100,000 and nephew Grover was nominated by the democrats on the next day. LKADEHS of all labor organizations nnd fraternal societies of every kind ihould attend the mooting to perfect , preliminary arrangements for a grand Fourth of July celebration. ' makes a city and it looks as if Omaha wore not as am bitious for factories proportionately as Bomo oj the smaller Nebraska cities. Wo need and must have moro factories. THK calamity which befell the Dallas nrtillory near Donnlson , Texas , will bo deeply rogiottod by the many friends of the company in this city. The young Texans made a good impression upon the people of Omaha. WHAT a horrible nightmare that con vention "will bo in the slumbers of par ticipants , with its bitter strife , its leak ing roof , its quarrel on the platform , its hideous yelling and all-night session ! The very circumstances wore ominous. NKW Yoiuc insulted in the choice for president , the western states hissed In their appeals for silver and the people of America asked to give up Ihoir niar- hots for England's good : Did over the democratic party present to the country ti sorrier spectacle or moro egregious blunders ? BUCK KiLCiUKK , having kicked down a bab.o door and attempted to defeat Sherman's statue at Washington , has made a third grasp for fame by attempting - ing to make a pantomime speech in con gress , waiving his arms and saying nothing. This was probably the ablest effort of his Ufa TllKltn are two distinguished men of Dos Molnos now in deep mourning. Both are wiser men today. Kaoh took in his mouth moro than ho could chow. Ono Indulged a laudable ambition and his party laughed at him : the other fed mi appotllo for revenge , but llnally fell outside the breastworks. UNnoumT.nuY there will bo no raoro In teresting event In Om ilia this year than the visit In August of thu Shrinors and Knights Tomplar. Several thousand of those distinguished members of the Masonic fraternity will bo hero , and it is most ( k'biralilo that they bo , generously ontortainoa. Tlio hospitality extended to those visitors will do moro to extend the reputation of Omaha for liberality in matter ! ) of this kind , than anything else of the year , and the opportunity to improve our good naiiio In this tospoct must not bo lost. The demand it will tiiuko upon our people in not largo nnd It Hhould bo mot promptly unU ohoor- lully. ' \ TtlK Grover Cleveland ia for the third llmo the candidate of the democratic party for president of the United Status. Al though without n single vote In the con vention from his own st.ito and relentlessly Its the ox- lessly fought by delegation ! president secured the nomination on the first ballot with votes to sparo. It was n vh-tory of which Mr , Cleveland may pardonably fool proud , nnd which ro- fleets credit upon the energy , skill and devotion of his friends. Whitney ana Dickinson and Vilns have repaid Cleve land for the honors ho bestowed on them when from comparative political obscurity ho elevated thorn1 to cablnot positions. There are others who do- votlon has imposed obligations on him which iu all probability ho will never bo able to repay. It is perhaps unnecessary to conaldor minutely the several explanations of this result of one of the moat Inharmoni ous political conventions in the history of tlio country. The intelligent student of politics will readily find ono of them in the tact that the demuerncy has no loader whoso apparent availability is equal to that of Mr. Cleveland. It hns abler men , as Carlisle for example , but they are not In the right section of the country to bo available its presidential candidate ? , and it could no't bo convinc ingly claimed in behalf of any northern democrat that ho would bo moro popular anywhere than Cleveland. It .vas urged by the friontls of the ox-president that if ho o.nihl not carry any of the doubtful BttitcB , including Nov. York , no ether democrat could do so , and the support ers of ether candidates were unable to demonstrate that this position was not sound and tenable. The course of Hill had made him im possible , and none of the other mon talked of Inspired confidence. Then there wits a very gonor.il disposition to rebuke the arrogance of Tammany and the methods which that olouiont of the New YoVk democracy had adopted. This wan plainly manifested throughout the proceedings of the convention. It is 'rather ' ijroditablo to the representatives of the democracy that they refused to countenance the course of the Hill faction. Mr. Cleveland , moreover , bta'ids pro-eminent In the regard of democrats us the exponent of the idea of tariff reform an idea that is by no means original with him , and which noitior ] ho nor any ether democrat haa over clearly defined or glvor practical application , It was the very , general view among democrats that the logie of the situation demanded the nomination of Cleveland. No well informed man will pretend that Grover Cleveland is stronger be fore the country now than he was four years ago. There is not a valid reason for assuming that bo can carry any state in 1892 that ho lo t In 1833. On the contrary there Is reason to bollovo that the list of democratic states in the last presidential election will bo reduced two or throe in the election this year. The policy of whioh Mr. Cleveland is the most conspicuous representative was freshly submitted to the pooplo'in 1883 and was overwhelming rejected. In view of the prosress and increased prosperity of the country it cannot reasonably bo supposed to have grown in nonular favor slnco that time. The bu'jinpsH of the country ia moving for ward peacefully and prosperously , and there is no demand and no good reason for a change that would unsettle and disturb every department of trade and industry. Therefore the meaningless cry of tariff reform , as made by the democratic party , will have loss in- Ilucnco witti the gro.it body of intelli gent voters this year than it did four years ago , The same conditions that gave the electoral vote of Now York to the re publican presidential candidates in 1888 still prevail , but they are intensified. The democratic factional conllictin that state has made wounds that will not heal. Cleveland is woalor : in Now York now than ho WHS four years ago when ho received the nomination and there is no probability that ho ' will maico any material gain as the 'campaign pro gresses. It is an absurd claim that ho can carry .any western or northwestern state , and If there is any debatable ail vor Btnto it will bo moro likely to go repub lican than democratic. GLiVKLXD \ AND HIS HKRMIKS. The reluctance ot the majo'rity in tho" Chicago convention to take the anll- Glevoland mon at their word Booms very strange , in vlow of the fact that Tim- ( iniiny never has violated it3 plages. It would bo impossible to point to a. smglo instance in which Tammany has boon false to Its professions of fealty or oppo sition to the candidates of the demo cratic party. In this case It very clearly makes known its antagonism to Mr. Cleveland. The speeches of Mr. Do Witt , Mr. Cockran , Mr. Follows and others bristle with points indicative of this antagonism. It is significant that the opposition of the antl-Clovoland mon in the state of New York to the candidate of the party Is not wholly based upon considerations of expedi ency. They hate Mri Cleveland bit terly , and they did not hosluto to give expression to that hatred in the conven tion. When mon like Dou-ko Cookran , W. C. Do Witt , John R Follows , Gen eral SlcU'ios and others who wlold'it powerful inlluonco In the Btalo of Nuw. York are united in an expression of .an tagonism to the nominee of their party It is safe to conclude that they moan something , No democratic candidate lias over oirrled the Empire state without the active aid of the forces whioh those ine.n roprouont. A united p\rty is abso lutely necessary to democratic success in that state , and oven when the dom- oor.ioy in unttod it Is fair lighting ground. It would bo dllllcult to exaggerate the intensity of the antagonism of Tuimnany toward Grover Cleveland. It is founded upon something moro than the defeat of the Hill forces in iho convention. If Cleveland and Hill had been rival can didates under ordinary conditions , the winner would have baon cordially s'up ported by the loser and the rivalry would have boon lost sight of as BOOH as the choice was mado. But In this case the Huoeosaful candidate and his sup porters in his own state have 'mado wur upon Uill audTauimauy hall , A moro bitter and aTgrC3Stvo o.islaupht could not have boon made l > i the Cleveland mon upon the republican party than they have made upon the friends of Senator Hill. They have denounced the Hill mon hi terms that could not Irivo boon oxpoclod to produce any ether fool- Ing1 than the savage resentment shown at Chicago. They organized themselves us the only regular representatives of the democracy of Nuw York and hold n fetato convention of their own nt which they elected delegates to the national convention nnd adopted resolutions ox- prosstvo of. their contempt of the mon who then hold and still hold in their hands the democratic machinery of their Btnto. If the Tammany men were some thing moro or less than human they might forgot during this campaign that they have boon treated as u pack ot po litical thugs fit only to bo o , st out and Ignored by the clement of the party which assumed to represent all that Is truly good In politics. But the utter- uncos of the Hill mon at Chicago prove that they nro by no moans disposed to submit quietly and take the modiclno olTored them with professions of delight. Their speakers did not hesitate to say that the opponents of Cleveland in Now York would put him to death at the polls. Every ono of the Hill speakers breathed throatonlngs and slaughter. It is significant , too , that the threats , were made when it was plainly apparent that Cleveland would bo nominated and that Hill was entirely out of the race. No democratic candidate for the presi dency was over confronted by a moro cortai.i prospect of defeat at the hands of his own party than Grover Cleveland Is now. The republicans have reason to bo perfectly satisfied with the outlook. A nisuitnuiihr ( 'OATK.VT/OX The democratic national convention it Chicago was perfectly In line with the traditions ofvtho party , and did not boho the predictions of those who said that It would bo stormy. In the whole history of the democratic party there has never boon a convention in which there was shown a moro bitter antagon ism than was shown at Chicago. The hostility of the' factions was not con trolled by considerations ot policy , but was given full away without regard to ( ionsoquonces. The republican convention at Min neapolis presents a striking contrast to the Chicago convention in many re spects , but chiolly in regard to tlio behavior of the delegates. At Chicago a man who cheered for Cleveland was in danger of being assaultoJ , and the opponents of the ox-prosldont ran the sama risk when they gave expression to their feelings. At Minno.ipolls a man could say what he pleased without placing himself in danger of personal injury. The scenes of disorder at Chicago as described by the corre spondents who witnessed them were simply riotous. Enthusiasm is always permissible , but the demonstrations of factional fooling at Chicago went be yond the bounds of reason. Any man who cheered for Hill or Cleveland .1iar < j was in clangor of being assaulted. Republican conventions have always boon decorous and decent and froa from the feeling which finds expression in riots and personal encounters. There is a difference between the elements which compose the two parties. History proves that republican conventions can do their work without disturbances , while the democrats always need / strong police force to preserve order. ' T//B DKMOCIIATIG VLATFUllM. The platform promulgated at Chicago covers a wfdo rnngo of subjects. It will bo sufllciont nt thia time to consider only those which will constitute the leading issues in the impending cam paign. The tariff plank , apart from its platitudes regarding the objects of tax ation , is essentially n plea for free trade , and this is not concealed by the protonao of a desire io protect the Interests of labor. In the unqualified denunciation of the tariff policy under which , during tlio past quarter of a century , tlio nation has made the most remarkable material progress in the world's history , there is shown the real sentiment of the democratic party regarding the system of American pro tection. The course of the majority In the present house of representatives in attacking Iho tariff in the interest of free trade is heartily commended , and the promise is hold out to the country that , if successful in obtaining control of the legislative departments of the government , the democratic party will repeal the present tariff law. It does not propose , bo it understood , to ro.viso the law with a view to correct ing any defects that may exist in it , and remedying any Inequalities incident to it , but to wipe it out altogether. Whether it would give the country in place of it BOino such measure as the Mills bill or whether the democracy has any Intelligent and practicable plan to substitute for the present tariff , the platform does not state. The tariff plank cont'iliH several assertions whioh urn contrary to well known fants , and the falsifying of which there will bo ample opportunity hereafter to ahow. Reciprocity Is denounced as a sham , in face of the fact that it has enabled us to regain old murkots and opgn now ones for our meats and broadstuffa nnd to in crease our foreign commerce 870,000,000 within a your. On the question of allvor coinage , which proved to bo qulto'as knotty and perplexing as had boon expected , the platform is llkoly to bo coiifuslng to the average democratic mind , and doubtless was Intended to bo. The act ot 1800 is denounced us u cowardly makeshift , when everybody knows that it was a compromise to ivvort free coinage and was the best that could bo do.no at the time to cheek the movement in favor of the free and unlimited coinage of silver. It has added largely to the currency of the country and thus far has had no evil affects , but it 1ms not accomplished whut WIIB hoped for In raising the prlco of allvor. That ia not the fault ot the law , but of the incrousod production of silver. The demand that gold and'sllvor shall bo coined on equal terms moans that the profit which now gooa to the government from the coinage ot silver shall bo taken by the producer of that motul , which would bo no moro just than would bo the p.iyuiont by thftJ5go\eminent | to the farmer or any uuicjcln.'H of U profit In oxccfia of the inarkut prlco ot their pro ducts. All p.uik ? agree that both gold and silver shoi iltto ! used -as money nnd that they ahouUl B | kept at n parity , but thh condtt'on ' o/ISld not bo maintained with the frco aiW unlimited coinage of silver , and tfiri/ls Iho policy which n. largo majority of ytho democratlb party want , lot them cdatuo and becloud the question as the * will. As to the adjust ment of u raUjjj/hrough International agreement , that'fr ? just what the repub lican admln'stratlon la endeavoring to do , nnd as yet It has received no encouragement - couragomont from any froo'ailvor demo crat In congress. The Amurk'an system of protection with roelproultv and the question of frco silver coinajjo will bo the hsuea of the eammlgn , and the republican parly is prepared to give them the fullest possl- blo discussion before thepeople. .S'JOXS O The signa of an aclivo revival of the prospmlty of Omaha are to bo mot with on every hand , There is developing a greater interest in ro.il estate , agents generally reporting that within the past few weeks the Inquiries have been moro numerous than at any previous ttino for a year. Naturally the market has grown tinner and the feeling of con fidence in the future has stronythonod. ' "ho Indications are th it a considerable amount of the idle capital In the banks of Omaha will bofoi'o long find invest ment in this direction , as well as in making improvements and establishing1 enterprises which will bo a source of permanent benefit to the city. U la not to bo doubted that thia ro- awakonlnsr of the spirit ot cntorpriso among our own people , the bettor dis position ot outside capital to look to Omaha for safe and profitable invest ment and the improved faith in the fu- turn malorlnl progress of this city whioh these things evidence nro to bo as cribed very Inrgoly to the wi o action of tlio people in giving their approval to the Nebraska Central project. The assurance - suranco that within the next fovv years from $0,000,000 to 3S,000,000 will bo ex panded in carrying out this project , nnd that when completed Omnliii will 'hnvo railroad facilities surpassed by no ether western city , and pornr.inmit improve ments of great value , naturally induces capital to avail itself ot the very favor able opportunity that now offers for rani estate investment that will certainly bring largo returns in the near future. Its offcct must also bo to conduce to ex pansion in nearly all departments ot en- torprtso. The packing interests , es pecially , which will bo given access to a much larger torl'ilbry for supplies than they now have , are already projecting a material extension V > f their capacity. Having declared their determination to bo relieved from tlio restrictions im posed by a monopoly , the people of Omaha see tho.lr way clear to the attain ment of the progress and prosperity which this city should realize by reason of ita location irr-the center of ono of the most productive portions of the country , and with confideneo restored are al ready beginning to-ronow the enter prise which in former years gave this city a vigorous and substantial growth unsurpassed by any ether Oily in the west. * WiiATr.vnn may bo the merits of the disagreement between the Board of Education and tlio taxpayers of South Omaha as to the tax levy proposed for school purposes , it is certainly a good sign that the demand for educational advantages in that community is moro than keeping pace with the growth of the income from fines and licenses. Heretofore the revenue from this source has supported the schools and no tax for this purpose has over been levied since the corporation waa created. The school fund from this source this year will bo $35,000 , and there is now In the treasury $0,000 available for the same purpose , and yet the demand for now school buildings has become so great that the outlay for education is no longer to be limited to the income from licenses. By whatever moans the money is raised , South Omaha is to bo congratulated upon the conditions which require moro schools. Progress in that direction should keep pace with her rapid growth in population. that como to THK BKB rogardljig the proposed celebration of the coming Fourth of July are uniformly favorable. Everybody appears to real ize that tills Is o peculiarly auspicious tirao for having such a commemoration ot the annivo'rsary of the declaration ot American independence ) as this section of the country has never hold , and there ia special Illness in having it in Omaha. This city will that day entertain thou sands ot visitors from every part of tlio country , and the opportunity is thoro- fo.-o most favorable for showing to the whole nation that in this western city the patriotism of'll ' o people is as vital and ardent as ituiii oilier sootlon of the republic. Such HU celebration as THK BKK has suggested would attract hero thousands of tlio pi oplo of Nebraska and Iowa ether ttmni those who will bo drawn to tha cityj.b political considora- lions. There is xfp o to r.rrango a mag- nlflcont demonstrat on if the matter is taken hold of nt-onco and energetically pushed. ' ' > THK ndmlnatlon'.of lion. A. E.'Stovon- Hon of Illinois , , ( or vice president by the Chicago convention did not strengthen the tlgjcot. Mr. Stevenson la a lawyer of good ability , who has served a term incongress , was first as sistant postmaster general In the Cleveland land administration and la popular with the Illinois democrats. Ho was prob ably chosen nt the suggestion of Senator Palnior , but hla selection will not ma terially affect the result In Illinois. That state ia safely republican thia year. On the ether hand , there are u grout many democrats in Indiana who will not forglvo the summary turning down of Mr. Gray , and it will not bo it all sur prising if soiiio of these are found in the republican ranks nqxt November. At any rate the treatment of Gray willvory .materially reduce the enthusiasm of Indiana democrats for the Chicago ticket and it ia pretty safe to say 4 takes that slate out of the doubtful list. I'UtMTS O.V KMIIlt I .SIM VULITW1. John Shorvln's name is still occasionally mentioned at a peed ono to head the demo cratic state ticket. Somebody has monlionod J. D.

Joe Cartloy of Atkinson Is said to bc-Hovo that uo has n chioh on the republican nomi nation for stalu treasurer. W. S.

Wntson will not accept a nomination for congress , " and It oxproisot tl\o fond hope that ho may meet Bryan on the stump in Joint debate during the campaign. The West Point Progress snya that with "Senator Kolper as the democratic candi date for congress It is doubtful whotnor the Independents will maUo any nomination in tlio Third district. " Perhaps Editor O'Sul- llvnn will expect Poyntor to withdraw from the race In c.iso ICoipor carries off the honors In the democratic convention. Tobias Castor's selection as thu member of the democratic national commlttco'from Ne braska loads tbo Grand Island Independent to say : "Mr. Clstor , the railroad attorney , will bo a nice man to bo swallowed by the alliances wticn the question of fusion with the democracy comes up. The democrats cro in the hands of the railroads as much as over. " John C. Santee , who has been n llttlo of everything , is now on the democratic side of the fence. Ho sees "only one road leading out of the democratic wilderness ; nominate Sum Wolbach or John E. Shorvin for gov ernor nod H. K. Bonestool for lieutenant governor and the _ people will rosponu with their votes brains nnd business. " John has almost always boon unfortunate in the role of a political sign post. There seems , to bo considerable of a fao- tionnl fight under the surfn.o in the third partv nnd the Nebraska Alliance lifls up the crust a little. It assorts that "some of our friends have desired lo use our columns lo 'boom' their respective candidates for gov ernor and to 'kill off1 others. This wo have not permitted ; " arid then the editor very kindly adds : "Wo are willing to trust the people to select their standard bearers with out dictation from us. " Tbo nomination of Whttolaw Hold recalls old times to tno mind of J. D. Stlno of the Superior Journal. "Loolting back across the years , " says Mr. Stino , "to a day when in Xonla , O. , wo climbed a rickety old stair case to call upon and congratulate this same man on his recent graduation with high honor from Miami university nnd his ven ture as editor of the Xonia News nnd found him shoving a hand roller over the forms on an old hand press ana Preston B , Plumb pulling the lever , how little wo or anyone else thought that the events of 1S03 would record the death of one as iho most Illustrious senator of a state thxt then had no existence , whllo tbo ether stood before the nation for the next to the highest position on the ticket of a party that was then but emerging from the rums of another that had gene down for want of moral cour- ngo to moot and crush out a great national crime. i5ut such is history unfolded in the lives of two poor young men who with lofty aims started in life llrnily fixed in right prin- ciplesand courageous in fighting for the same.

O. , Juno B3. ) "Poor Gray I What n sacrifice ot Indiana's favorite democratic son , " was the exclama tion of democrats and republicansallko when the result of the convention's work upon the vlco presidency booiimo known M. 0 o'clock this evening. There bad boon such a deter mined Hghr , for Uray by bis Hoottor frlonns that It was supposed for n whllo ho would got the crumb , notwithstanding the fact that it has boon stated a number of times in Iiin : specials that Mr. Cleveland would not accept him. him.Mr. Mr. Stovonsou was o very ordinary ma chine politician while ho beheaded fourth class postmasters under President Clove- laud , violating the civil service law , nnd tno "stuffed propliot" sat ns the soul of reform In the wlilto house. The nomination will not como to Mr. Stevenson with tiny decree of iclai. It was refused by Governor BOIM of owa and would have boon refused by Gray nul there been nnylhing oho for Uio gov ernor to do , Illinois Is hopclosily republican nnd since Stevenson represents no element > f strength outsldo of his own state , where 10 \ \ unknown , it U thought that the party nr.nairor.s in the convention camu to thu con clusion to throw the second place away. l)0ll't I.IItU till ! 1'llUloiMII , There is n good deal of criticism1 on the platform which was adopted , although most iemocrnts are not desirous of having their expressions of disapproval published. Hop- rescutativo Holmiiu of Indlann , bovvnvcr , was outspoicen in nis ucnuticiauon.IT , is , " said ho , , "marked by more timidity than mylhlng the democratic party has done for vonrs. It is as weak us a combination of timidity nnd slush could make lt. " < The conservutivo men of the party on the tariff question uro not nt nil pleased with the plank relating to that Issue , nnd they oou- sidor tli at the convention would have douo moro wisely it the original report of the com- inlttco had been adopted. The republicans are particularly well pleased with this plank , mm Representative liiigloy of Maine said that this alone would insure the success of the republican ticket. "This declaration of the convention on tariff , " said ho , "draws the lipo moro distinctly between the two parties on this issue thau over before. This Is the first tlmo that the democratic party has placed itself on record na favoring free trado. It is well known up in Now England that iho democrats in conventions ' nnd' speoohmaking in thee s'tatos have nlways " been persistent in declar ing that the democratic party was for a tariff which would equalize the dif ferences between the prices of labor paid in this country and in Europe. This was also the republican position , but now that tha democrats have declared for free trade thov. can no longer make this claim and they will probablv lose Connecticut on thU issue nlono. Of course the term 'free trado' comes to us through the English nomenclature , and it docs not moan absolutely no tariff at all , but only a tariff ou articles not produced in the country. This is .therefore a tariff for revenue only , which Encland now hns , and this was endorsed by the democrat * yester day from a democratic standpoint , therefore , I believe that tbo platform Is weak prac tically , us it will cost the party Connecticut , without making any compensatory gains olsowhoro. " Not n Clierr Nor a Sinllo. Like n wet blanket Mr. Cleveland's noml nation foil upon the democrats in Wnshinc- tou. There was not a cheer nor a smllo of joy. Almost every active partisan democrat Here from any part of the country wns opposed - posed to Mr. Cleveland's nomination for man reasons. Firstly , they did not nnd do not bollovo that ho could defeat President Harrison. Bocondly , he has boon president once. They Know him. Ho hns boon tried , ntm proved a failure. Ho dis played an abnormal in gratitude and had no appreciation of personal sacrilico made for him. ' Old leaders were turned down , and a deaf ear wns given to all advices. This was arbitrariness such as had never before been witnessed In the prebidonlial oflico. Ho was nobody's pnmdent , and lived for himself. He forgot these who made him , and kept up some of bis early friendship- ) . These were the expressions made by the leading democrats of tbo country now in Washington today , and n dejected lot of men they aro. Mr. Cleveland's nomination Is en tirely satisfactory to the republicans. Ho it was President Harrison most desired as his opponent. With Cleveland , the president wns and is confidant that there will bo a fair nnd square light between issues not men , open test of the two great principles which the two platforms have loft as a bar between thoseparties. . It will bo the present republican American system of protection and reciproc ity upon the ono side nnd * free trudo upon tbo other. The "tariff roform" of tbo Cleveland - land school , sucti ns is described in the plat form adopted nt Clilcngo , is free trade , pure and simple. The Chicago plntlorm frankly denounces the republican protective tariff us n fraud and declares that the "ledoral gov ernment hat no constitutional power to 1m. nose and collect tariff duties except for rov- ouuo only. " I'or Tree Trade tllrrcl. This Is , by the president and blJ coUbor era , construed to bo a declaration for fro trade direct , nnd thnt It cannot bo distorted into nnylhing olso.

Secretary Vostor expressed himself to Tin : HIF. : correspondent in this language todays "Mr. Cleveland Is the strongest nnd weakest ramllilato the democrats could have named. Hu Is strong with hl % parly bocnuso ho most clearly nnd fairly represents tbo cardinal principles of his party. Ho Is a frco trader , nnd behoves In it golden standard.
