This is nn off year in state politics , Only thirteen out of the forty-four states vlll hold state elections-namely : Iowa , Nohraskaj Kentucky , Maryland , Massahis chusotts , Missouri , Now Jersey , New York , Ohio , Pennsylvania , South Da kota , Virginia nnd Wisconsin. But five of thoHO Btntos Iowa , Massachu setts , Ohio , Wisconsin and Virginia- will elect full tickets. Kight states will cheese judges or legislatures , nnd thrco of the legislatures to bo chosen will elect United States senators Iowa , Kentucky nnd Virginia. The greatest political interest will un doubtedly cantor in Ohio , whore , more than anyw'hero else , the contest will bo made upon the tariff issuo. The repub lican candidate In the Buckeye state , Governor McKInley , represents , per haps , more completely than any other man In the country , the policy of protec tion as it is embodied in the tarilT that bears his name , and opposed to * him is Mr. Ncal , the author-of the plank in the democratic national platform which declares that protection is not only fraud nnd robbery , but also that it is unconstitutional. The light in thnt Bttito will , therefore , bo inado squarely upon this issue , and the verdict of the voters of Ohio will exert nn inlluenco national in its scopo. As yet the calnpaign has not fully opened , but It will bo active within the next two weeks , find so far as can bo judged from the present indications the chances of success are largely with the republicans. Governor McKlnloy is a most able and nggrc.ssivo leader of great personal pop ularity. There is no serious factional strife in the republican party tind the only danger is in ovorconlldonco. After Ohio the elections in Iowa , Wisconsin and Massachusetts , all of which states , now have democratic governors , will share about equally in the interest of politicians. The outlook in Iowa i ? now favorable to republican success. The reasons for this have -already boon pre sented in these columns and need not be repeated. All that scorns necessary to republican . -victory this year in the Hawkeye state is thorough organization and aggressive work National ques tions will necessarily occupy the largest amount of attention in the campaign , and upon these the republicans of Iowa are in the majority. Wisconsin has twice successively elected tv demo cratic governor , and last year gave its electoral vote to Cleveland - land , who had a plurality of a little more than 0,000. , It must ho regarded as an uncertain state this year , with the chances somewhat in favor of the demo crats , who have the political machinery of the state In thqir control , but it is by no means to bo regarded as a foregone conclusion that the democrats will win there. Local influences which largely contributed todomocraticsuccess during the last four years will bo less potential this year , while the general conditions will have greater effect upon the minds of voters. Massachusetts ought , to elect the entire republican ticket this year , because she is one of the states most largely concerned in preventing a revision of the tariff on free trade lines. ' In the last two state elections she has chosen a democratic governor while electing republicans to all the other state otllccs and u republi can legislature. Last November she gave Harrison a plurality of 20,000. Massachusetts is a republican state be yond question , but Governor Hussell , who lias boon twice elected , is a man of extraordinary popularity , and if lie runs again , as now seems assured , ho may bo again elected. A great deal of political interest will bo felt in Now York , which elects both branches of the legislature and nil the principal state olllcors with the exception of governor. The republicans are hopeful of carrying the state , counting upon a reaction of public sentiment by reason of the high handed course of the democrats , at the instigation of Senator Hill , in stealing the upper branch of the last legislature , and of the purpose of the democratic machine to nominate for justice of the court of appeals the man who did the bidding of Hill in the scheme for btoal- Ing the state sonata. The democrats are very strongly intrenched , however ' , in the Empire btato , while the republican br lican organization is not so thor ough as to warrant absolute con- Ildenco in the micccss of that party. It is fortunate , in view of the financial nnd business Hituation , that the public mind this year will not bo altogether diverted from the consid eration of practical affairs by the de mands of politics , but there will bo quito oTiough of the latter to maintain popular interest in political affairs. ip ; r J.UYSTIIK ixDI.IKJ Advices from Washington toll us that Congressman Mercer has heard of some protests by the citizens of Omaha against the continued presence of the opinpuiites of Indian soldiers at the fort iicin vhls city , and ho has rushed up to the War department to request the HCC- rctary to have thp Indians removed. There has boon some agitation to secure the ditibandmcnt of the Indian troops , and thia is [ > tnimbly another move orig inating in the Biiniu qunrtm- make the Indian odious to the department as a means of bringing' it over to their side of the question. They think , no doubt , that by making it hot for the Indian wherever ho is located they can thus cause the War department HO much trouble that It will gladly saok rulluf by discharging all the Indian soldiers , Whence those protects , people who huvo boun living in Omaha right along , , are not informed. They have hoard nothing if them , although a few resi dents near the fort may have written site Mr. Mercer complaining of depredations in their orchards or burnyards. But the lulIan | has boon no worse in this rospcot than his white follow soldk > r .

White Ji - dlora are frequent visitors nt the ll , wlioro they tibimlly regiutor as drunk or disturbing the peace. The Indians orn the other bund have succeeded in gen erally obeying the law. The officers of tin army are almost unanimous in tholr npprovnl of the Indian M a aoldlor.

Duffle to the vacancy on the district bench created by the resignation of Judge Davis , Governor Crottnso has carried out the recommendation of the great body of attorneys who practice before the bar of this district. This is n fitting return of the compliment which the bar paid to the judgment of the governor in its unanimous en dorsement of Judge Walton. It offers , moreover , a practical proof thnt Gov ernor Crounso is in full accord with the established usiigo of filling the bench of this district- with n nonpartisan judl- ciary.i Judge DufIo ! is to bo congratu lated upon the opportunity thus afforded him to show his capabilities as n trial judge before the people tire called upon to endorse him at the polls. TUB 1KTKHKST OF I'KNalOyBns. Under the present practice of the pen sion olliec coi-tnin evidence and othoi- papers deposited in that olllco by nn iip- plitant for a pension nro practically inncccssiblo to such applicant or his at torney or rcprosontatlvOi and this rule has caused a great ocal of well-founded complaint. Of course it is not strictly observed in all cases. Under snlTiclont pressure the pension olllclals may per mit nn Inspection of such papers and oven lurnish a copy of them , but the rule permits thctn to exer cise an arbitrary wilj in the matter and this hai long boon regarded as a griev ance which ought to bo remedied. ' Senator Mien of this state has intro duced a bill , which is nmv in the hands of the.committee on pensions , providing thnt it "shall ho the right of any ap plicant for a pension , his duly authorized agent or attorney , or any 'senator or representative in congress from any state or district in which such applicant shall reside , to personally inspect and take or have furnished to him exemplified copies of all iillidavits , evidence , testimony , re ports of examining s.urgcon'3 inspec tors , the adjutant general of the United States , or of any state , or any other agent , person or representative of any department or bureau thereof , and this right shall in no manner bo denied or evaded by the custodian of such afll- davits , evidence , testimony or reports. " The chat-go for such copies is not to exceed 5 cents for every 100 words , in cluding the attestation thereof. There ought not to bo any objection to this , which proposes to give no undue privi lege to applicants for pension , but will enable them or these whom they may authorize to represent them to know that their applications and other papers are in proper form and correct , and it is presumed that no ono will question their right to do this. The proposed legisla tion would devolve additional work upon the pension olllcc , but it would be paid for this , so that the government would not bo put to any additional expense. There is another matter in the in terest of pensioners which may per tinently bo referred to in this connec tion , and thnt is the recent order of the commissioner of pensions changing and modifying "the rule established a short time ago regarding the * reexamination - examination of cases under section 2 of the act of Juno 27 , 1890. Under that rule pensions were suspended in advance of allowing pensioners a hearing , a most anomalous and unjust prooeeding , which was not approved oven by northern democratic members of congress. The secretary of the in terior and the commissioner of pensions defended their course on the ground that it was instigated nnd approved by President Cleveland ; but however this may bo , the widespread expression of indignation at so extraordinary a policy , which practically declared a pensioner guilty without the ovi'denco , had its effect , and hereafter pensioners will not bo dropped from the rolls without a hearing. In every case of the suspen sion or reduction of the pension the pen sioner will have sixty days in which to show his right to the pension ho is re ceiving. Everybody , including the honest vet erans themselves , desires that the pen sion rolls shall ho purged of tlioso who are not entitled to the bounty of the government but the demand is equally general tlmt this work shall bo done fairly , so that no one who has a just claim to a pension shall bo denied it. AN OCCASIONAL glimmer of common sense * will crop out in oven such n con firmed old I'mtist as Allen Root. It tils not Allen's fault , however , and ho must OH the bane and poison that is killing the populist party is u multiplicity ol candi dates , Allen struck nearer the truth than lie imagined. If there Is any one among the local populists who docs not expect to run for some ofilco within the gift of the' pcoplo ho 1ms as yet failed to declare hiuifelf. Mostof the recruits in this vicinity have boon secured simply iyo because they have been led to believe that the chances of attaining public olllce might be buttered by the change in politics , Many of them have boon Booking ofilco at the hands of the other parties all tholr lives and now they intend to continue the search in the ranks of the populists. But the local populists are between two horns of ala dilemma. A multiplicity of candidates is killing the party , and if the party trios to head oil the multiplicity of can- didutos it will kill iUolf. AN ACT passed by the last legislature of the state of Now York provided for the appointment of two agents to BCUUI-O for the counties which had boon defray ing the expenses oJ supporting the in sane in their districts u rolmbiirsomont of the money paid out , in whole or in part , in all cases whore relatives or friends wore liable therefor. It is desired - sired to have thcbo accounts Bottled be - fore the now btututo , which places the euro of all dependent Insane persons in the hands oft the state without county intervention , goes into effect next Octo ber , and under which it is expected that no one whoso duty JV Is to defray the cost of inalnlcntriutt will bo nblo to uvohl his proper ujifYrlbutton. The in vestigations of thfl-ihgonts referred to have confirmed Uifo impression thnt thfcro wore many jj&rsons legally liable who wore ovadlnpf Uio bin-don of sup porting insnno relatives. The prnctico not only results in flu justice to the tnx- paj'ora , but also In'VrtHoing many of the harmless insane $ $ ntato institutions for the very purpo&oiOf shifting the bur den of their support 'upon thb public in general , According , } ! ) the reports there are now 400 inmates of Btato hospitals for whoso support reimbursement is being irmdo to county officials , nnd the work of thcso , agents is expected to double this number. This condition of affairs cannot bo confined to the limits of any 0110 stale , and it is highly prob able that the people of other localities are bolug imposed upon in n like mannon ] The success of the Now York statute ought id commend it to legislatures throughout the union. Tun newspapers of Chicago nro right in line with llioir local movement for n nonpartlsnn jtidicinvy. Even the Chicago Times , the organ of Mayor Harrison , goes far enough to say this much : "Cook county will not have upon the bench men of low aims and mall attainments , It wants mon of high character , of industry - - dustry , of intelligence , nnd , nbovo all , of integrity , and if u democratic ticket is not from first to last worthy of support it will be without support. " A UTTM3 placard on railway ticket oflice can create considerable commotion in railway circles. Perhaps it would have been equally profitable for the other roads to have motstlmt $12.75 rate to Chicago instead of having it rescinded. Yns. the rate is the thing. When the schema to risk the lives of thousands of school children at the World's ' fair falls through It will bo convenient to blame the failure to the refusal Of the railroads to make a favorable rate. WHAT'S in an "if ? " Any ono will promise to go to Chicago "if a proper railroad rate can bo secured , " provided , of course , that ho remains the judge of what is a proper rate.

' ' Sooner or later an end must bo put to the systematic filibustering in the senate which is earned on undur the name of senatorial courtesy. Tlio abuse of such privileges has compelled the adoption of some rule of c-Ioturo in every other parllauiontary body in the world. And now , when nn issue is before the senate which an overwhelming majority of the American people demand sball bo speedily decided , is a Rood time for the adoption of such a rule In the seuuto. A Common .SoiiHo Vie r. FttUerton J\'ew . The views of Mr. IJosowater on Union Pa- clllc affairs have a vast , deal of practical common sunso in thorn that sbould commend them to every citizen of Nebraska. Tlio Union Pacific railroad system is decidedly in a bole , iliiaucially , out of which it cannot pos sibly emerge unaided. Just think of a road attempting to keep itself out of the hands of the sheriff that Is loaded down with nn indebtedness < > f 5110,000 per mile. And that is what tbo Union Paoillc main line between Omaha and Ogdun is. The government has hail the bcnollt accruing from the carrying of the mail , the transportation of troops , baggage , rations , otc. , amounting to millions of dollars ; has the advantaro of Increased valuations , and ccrtaluly It would not bo an undue discrimination against the pcoplo of the whole country if , for the Interest of Nebraska , Kansas , Colorado and Wyoming the government would cancel the entire dobt. Wo would favor such action if the government would condition its action on a contract that the cancellation should for ever seeuro a reduction on all kinds of traffic based on the reduced valuation and costs of managements. If Uio costs of doing business with thu ro.ids were TOduced by n percentage based on the cancellation of the f51,000KK ( ) which it owes the government it would inivlci ) a difference of many thousands of dollars ' to the people of Nebraska in a single ye'ar. Otherwise , as Mr. Kosowutor says , "tho funding of the Union P.iclllc debt simply means that the people west of ttio Missouri , who bear ho brunt of the burden , are to be taxed for several generations to pay the interest on the mortgage , and finally of the principal. " Tlio.puojilu of the west ought to Htiind togethoty-and work as 0110 uian fur thu accomplishment of this result. \ VlntVonlil lli'l'p till ) Welt , Yuikt'ftmt * . It would bo folly fap , the United States government to attempt to protect its claim against the Union P.iclUo Uatlroad company by paving off thu nrjornludobteduoss , The bonded debt on the main line is H ,000,000 , and the mortgairois 11.000,000 , making in all $07,000,000.

The Interests of the west ilt'/iiund that the Union Pacific company bo , reorganized on a now and moro businesslike basis , and with an Indebtedness uifirt * in proi > ortion to the vuluo of the property. Thu government has already lost enough on this line , without making any further "invest ments" in thn same lino. The road wns an absolute necessity at the time it wns built , and it was a wlsu thlmj for thu government to givu it buatclcnt aid to secure its con struction. As a financial investment it was not a success , but the advantage to the pub lic has been very great in uniting the remote - mete sections of the continent and develop- lag the intermediate country. Thu money that the government put into the road was well invested , but H is gene and there Is no way to got it back , I ot the rest of the loss fall on the holders of the other obligallousof the road und uot upon Uucjo Sam , The best thing to bo douo now la lo let thu first inert- gugu bo foreclosed , aud lot the road bo told.

The board of transportation in its answer to the application of the L/nlon / Pacific to restrain the putting into effect of the max imum rate bill sets out that members of the board have no definite and positive knowl edge as to the earnings of the Union Pacific system in Nebraska for the year Ib92 , nnd have no dcilnitu knowledge ns to the amount of operating expenses , taxes , rent , etc. , for thnt year , but they allege that in anticipa tion of the passage of the maximum ratu bill the company purchased an unusually largo amount , of rolling stock nnd in vested ! nu extraordinary sum in re pairs | and improvements , with n view of making it appear that the operat ing expenses of the road wcro largo , and that small dividends would bo paid on stock. Besides , it would have the effect o ; discouraging Uncle Sam ( who put UD the money to build thoroad ) if ho should bo in clined to refuse n further extension of its debt , upon which lie only holds a second mortgage. The answer further alleges that it has been the policy of the company at all times to uiuko A low through rate and charge an unreasonable and unjust local rate upon shipments originating and terminating within the state , nud thnt the same applies to passenger tr.ifllc in thnt the lo.-al Iranlc is charged high to support the through travel. Thu state board ( which has heretofore been nothing but nu nnuox of the railroads ) is fast matting "anti-monop" campaign liter ature , which wilt arise to plnguu somebody in the near future.
