This is strik ingly Illustrated by the special dispatch from Omaha that appeared in the Lincoln Journal Sunday morning under thn black- typo headline : "Webster a Winner. " Ac cording to this veracious dispatch Web ster displayed' the most consummate generalship in bundling the Douglas county H'publlcan convention and suc ceeded in carryitig things his own way In flpito of opposition , after n most exciting - citing tilt with Hwowatoron the floor. The incst > interesting plcco of news is the nsKortion that Mr. 1'owoll could have had the convention Instructed for him- had ho wanted it and that the unit ruin was finally abandoned for the Swko of harmony. Now , will ) a very few exceptions , the report is substantially correct. There was a republican convention Hold in Omaha on Saturday , which elected tv delegation to the state convention at Lincoln. Mr. Webster , ably assisted by Charley Grceno , Herb Lcavltt and other cm input railroad lobbyists , put in his final word on the outside and succeeded admirably in converting hovoral delega tions that came pledged for Maxwell to change their opinions In less than two hours. This change was evidently brought about by the stringency of the money market and a desire to visit the World's ' fair bj the old reliable Burling ton route , over which all such converts arc carried without money and without price. Mr. Webster did not have a tilt with Kobowaler in the convention. lie had his scrap the day'before in the repub lican primaries of his own ward , and , being rejected as tv delegate , had no right to the iloor. Ho was , however , permitted toapologizo for his champion ship of the cause of his clients at the state house and explain awny his ani mosity toward Judge Maxwell. The resolution to commit the dole- pales to the unit rttlo was not with drawn for the sake of harmony , but for thu sangr reason that caused the mover of tlio resolution introduced at the outset to authorize the chairman to select the 108 delegates through llvo dummied to beat a very disorderly retreat. The convention was over whelmingly opposed to the unit rule and a largo number of delegates revolted and started to leave the convention hall. It is true that the convention was captmed by Webster and his railroad camp followers and it is also trim that it was lost by his mtignillcont generalship , so that nearly one-half o ( the , delegates Bclcetett will go to Lincoln in favor of Maxwell. A C.lU.rilX 10 THK VAKAlt PROJUC- runs. When the Nebraska Central bond proposition was submitted it was hedged by safeguards that would compel strict compliance with the obligations im posed. The Platte canal proposition aooa not contain a single provision that will prevent a , gigantic piece of jobbery. Thoroi is ample time yet for n supple mentary ordinance that will protect this city against Credit Mobilior construc tion rings and costly wildcat oxpoi- irnents. . The great mass of our citizens and taxpayers are in favor of the canal , but they want to feel sure that every dollar voted will be h'onehtly and intelligently expended. They will not vote to plunge the city into $0,000,000 , of debt unless they fool sure that we Hhall got cheaper power , cheaper electric lights and a re liable , abundant and cheap water sup- ' ply. The moro fact that everybody would like to got moro money in circu lation by tjtimttlat ing public works does not justify a reckless voting away of millions without the slightest assurance that the money will bo expended for labor and material instead of being ab- borbcd by bpcetilators and contractors. Omaha has had exiwricnco onotigh with worthless pavement's ' and wretched sewer work to tot taxpayers on guard against n repetition of such waste on a colossal bcalo. THE BUG has never yet opposed a pub lic improvement and it will not oppose the canal project if it is utibinitted in such form as will protect the taxpayers against the taxeaters and job bers. Wo insist that the propo.sition already submitted shall bo revised or supplemented by such provisions as will act as a barrier to reckless waste , con struction swindles , or extortionate charges for power or water supply. Wo shall insist that the work shall bo done by competitive bidrf that will en able us to contract without boinpllcocod. Unless these safeguards are embodied as part of the bond proposition shall deem it oxtralmzardotis for the tax payers to sanction thu proposed blanket mortgage on all they own and all they over expect to own. ItKSVLT 01' TIIK fIJMESR AFFAIR. If wo can give crcd'enco to the latest oitblo advices the final scones of the Franco-SIamotio episode have been en- noted in the ratification of the treaty of cubsion , and the dibincmbormout of Siam has been accomplished without the sem blance of active interference on the part of any of the other interested European powers. Prance , it eeems , was only too eager to tci/o upcn any cxcitfce that might olTer to justify a re ort to aggressive tactics in the east. The killing of a fuw French olli- cers in command of native troops would nowhoio have been viewed n de manding u recourse to violent measures. But thq obdurate attitude of the French government in insisting that nothing short of a large cession of territory would offer eatifcfaotory assurance that such events would not bo countenanced in the future forced the Siamese king to acknowledge his poworlossncss and to look for assistance from the stronger continental nations , Hc-fusal to como to Ills assistance left him no alternative but to agree to whatever conditions the French might deign to accept as their ultimatum , The Impelling motives of the French aggression in Slum have been variously interpreted. The action has on one side been viewed merely as the natural de velopment of thu mania for colonial pos session that lias lately scoured u now grasp upon all the leading European peoples. Franco was behind the others in this respect , and to that may bo rss cribed the apparent unconcern of her vabi rlous neighbors , England , moreover , is said not to bo unwilling to have French territory as a bulTer between its interol csts In the cast and the o of Russia and thus to lesten the chances of frequent collision. The second explanation of the French efforts is that they wore designed as a by-play tn inlluoncc the parliamentary elections that occurred during the mid- die of August last. For this purpose they undoubtedly had somd considerable effect , stimulating French pride in for eign acquisitions , and strengthening the forcrs controlled by the existing govern ment. They overshadowed the sensa tions of the Panama scandals and de tracted from their political significance , but further than that tnolr bearings upon the outeoirio of the election must remain problematical. In the United Slates the sympathies of the people have been almost unlvor- bally upon the side of Slam. .Slant's prompt offer to arbitrate the question of damagts seemed to place all thu blame for protracted hohttlltiod upon the shoul ders of the French and made the French ultimatum appear all the more unwar ranted. France's aqulsltlons in the cast , however , gtvohur a linn base from which she will attempt to extend her dominions. Thu Siamese affair introduces n third European power into the eastern ques tion and insures further complications before many years shall elapse. 71V 7'WnnOiV. SOUTH OMAIIA , Oct. 'J. To tlio Editor of TUB OKI : : Will you kindly inform many readers through the columns of Tin ; linn If there is nny law now in force in the state of Nebraska by virtue of which tlio name of a cltlznn nmy bo placed upon ttio Oi1ioi.il ticket for the oflli-o of Justice of the supreme court without beint ; nominated at a state convention of either the republican , dem ocratic or independent parties. i'ho reason for this query is beo.iusoof the fact : ! that thuro are moro than nine-tenths of thu 4,000 laboring men employed in tlio packIng - Ing houses of tlilr. city , who , without regard to u.irtv nnill.itiqn , hops to have an oppor tunity to wist a vote on the 7th day of next November for that eminent Jurist , Samuel J. Maxwell , but are ufr.Ud If the matter of nomination rests entirely with the wily pol iticians Judge Maxwell may suffer defeat , bceau&o he possesses the cour.-ijfo of his con fictions , to docldo casoa in accordance with the dictates of his Judgment , without regard for the pecuniary interests of the political boodlurs who have already hold up and robbed the unsuspecting taxpayers of the state. PACKING House MA.V. Under the statutes of Nebraska any pot-son may bo placed on the official bal lot 1 for any state ofllco on a petition signed by 500 electors. Each elector signing the petition must add to his signature lias 1 ; place of residence , his business and his 1 ] business address. The petition for the nomination of a state oflleor must be filed with the secretary of state not less than fifteen days prior to.tho . day of election. Judge Maxwell has peremptorily de clined to permit his name to bo used as u aandidato by petition. lie is a candi date for nomination before the republi can state convention. If. the majority of the delegates clocked to that convention shall decline to nominate him ho will , not - bo a candidate .for re-election. This is , of course , upon'the. assumption that . the convention is untrammeled in its } decision end the vote cast on the issue ' is uninfluenced by bribery or coer cion. If Judge Maxwell is counted out by fraud and voted ddwn by purchased votes the republicans of the state will repudiate the candidate , whoever ho bo. may _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ MKKDl\G aJlH SKttATK. The Philadelphia .Record , commenting on the senate situation , says : ' 'The spectacle which the senate thus presents in its inability to respond to public opinion should not bo'lost upon the country. Since , in the , condition of things , the senate cannot bo ended , il must bo mended. The advocates and attorneys of monopolies and of private interests should bo extirpated , and along with them the drones and imbe ciles who , by their elevation to a post of which they are unworthy , -have lost the happy opportunity of remaining un distinguished and unknown. Instead of leaving the choice of senators to legislative caifcuscs the people should tuko the mutter into their own hands by nominating for the bonate men who are fitted for this responsible representative trust. " Every word of what our con temporary says is sound and voices a sen timent which is rapidly growing throughout the country. Every day that thu minority of the senate is able to kcop that body in the position of an ob struction to the carrying out of the pop ular will , as it has been most clearly and strongly indicated , increases the fooling that tlio senate must bo brought "nearer to the people , must ba placed in closer touch with popular sentiment and made to realize moro fully its responsibility to thu people. Thu only effective way in which this can bo douo is to change the method of electing senators , so that the people shall uxor- cibo a less indirect influence in the choice of members of the "upper house" than under the prevailing method of leaving the choice of senators to legis lative caucuses. That such a change would result in sending a batter class of men to the senate , thereby restoring that body to its former high character , is not to bo doubted , and it would huvo the equally important effect of inducing senators to pay moro attention to public sentiment and to the popular will , in stead of arrogantly , as now , setting themselves above the people 'and under the cloak of "bunatorial courtesy" disre garding the popular demand and reck lessly endangering tlio public interests and welfare. Tlio course of the senate for several weeks post has furnished an unanswera ble argument in favor of such a change as will thoroughly "mend" that body and make it what it was intended to bo , u conservative chock to hasty and inju dicious legislation , instead of the bul wark of monopoly and private interests , as it has become. The intelligent judg ment of the country overwhelmingly con demns the so-called "courtesy" which : permits a minority to obstruct legisla tion indefinitely , and this unropublicun and intolerable practice , which puts it In the power of u few men to stop the machinery of government whenever their sectional or sclfiph ; iiilorcsts may bo at BtnUe. must go. It will go , with all the abuppj , incident to it , as soon as the people take the matter of the choice ol sctmtors'jj lo their own hands , and it would seum-jv safe prediction that this will bo ( Io/I6"'ln / ' the not very remote future.

" If this is the truth , as n,6Vn ? acouis most probable to any ono whcv'has watched the develop ments of tjiti' ' $ oOOOl , ) bargain scandal , the broach between Mr. Cleveland end tltl the senate is apt to bo considerably widened before the matter is finally settled.

Tin : so-called' Pun-American silver congress meets in St. Louis today. . The call for the congress was couched in lan guage lurid enoiigli to believe that noth ing less than secession and anarchy would follow the repeal of the silver legislation now on the statute books. But from all indications the delegates are a vury mild-mannered and harmless lot . of people.

XHIIltASKA VUT.lTlUAr I'OINTS. Pierce Call : The Fremont Tribune prints U D. Uichnrd's letter to Kosowatcr , but falls to ptint Ilosowntcr's answer. Why ? The answer by Rosoy was the best part of It. Silver Creek Times : Wo are for instruc- tions , and iron clad instructions at that. Wo have all seen too much of men falling In with the popular current , securing a place oil a delegation and then utterly failing at thu critical moment. That is one of the many schemes to which tricksters resort to defeat the party will. Of course wo don't wish to intimate Unit there are any trick sters in Mcrrick county , but then it Is Just as well to be on the safe side. No frlund of Mnxwoll should object to instructions. Pierce Call : The Norfolk News says that if "Judgo Maxwell is the only republican who can defeat the independent candidate then the republican party of Nebraska bad bolter disband. " Wo think like the News that the republicans can elect any peed , honest , upright man one with a clean record. Hut Prick has not a clean record , but is n railroadito and a monopolist of the rankest kind. If lie is nominated ho will be buried on election dav. It is tune that the ropuulican party was tearing loose from this railway octopus that has been its controlling factor In years past. Lincoln News : Ono thing is growing pain fully evident , and that is that , the llorco partisan'spirit being engendered lu the light for the supreme judgeship is menacing re publican success this fall. The anti-Max well men are using tactics and epithets that will estrange many republicans who love fair play , and that will bo pretty hard for these men to1" swallow if Maxwell docs happen to bo nominated. It" Maxwell [ s turned down by moans of the dummy candidate In every county scheme , and some man nominated whoso limitations with tho'railroads are mofo than suspected it. will inoun the loss of many votes. The re publican atate convention has a very delicate task before it. Tobias Tribune : As the time for holding the republican stuto convention draws near it is- apparent that the real issue will bo , shall Judge Maxwell bo shelved. The issue arises because of the judge's anti-monopoly inclinations and his opinion in thu impeach ment cases. Every corporation capper and every heeler of the state officials will do their b.estto , ' shelve the venerable Judge , and they havo' fair prospect of success , for although the rank and flic of the republicans are at heart In favor of the sturdy old jurist , still the whip of the party leaders and wire pullers at the convention will probably araw enough of them into line to nrovcnt his nomination. It is probable that Saline county's delegation will bo anti-Maxwell , and wo do not have to look fur for'tho reason. This is the homo of Hon. Gebrgo Hustings and the county is full of voters who for the past twenty years have been his ardent supporters and ad mirers , and who today , although they may feel at heart that ' 'Saline county's favorite son" lias made a grave mistake , still they love him and arc unwilling to send a delega tion iluit would directly or indirectly reflect upon Mr. Hustings or show that they thought that ho was disloyal to his constit uentsby ' not serving the stuto as he should. Thb'Tribunc ' holds General Hastlncs in high esteem'and has never believed him guilty of any willful wrongdoine , but in order to vin dicate him wo do not think it necessary nor do wo think it right to shelve the ablest jurist Nebraska over had , simply because ho did not decide u case in our friend's fa\or. The Tribune , and it behoves it voices the sentiments of the ranic and file of the repub licans of this vicinity , would like to see the delegates from Saline county instructed for Maxwell , us our neighbors , Jefferson nnd Fillmore. have already clone , believing that such action would redound to the good of the party and the state. $ aoooo I'Jn A juii. Globe-Democrat : The only thing to bo said in favor of the Van Alen appointment is that It gives Cleveland a good ehauco to correct a serious mistake. Philadelphia Times : Even admitting Van Alon wears a monocle no reason has been so far adduced why ho shouldn't also honestly have u foreign mission in his eye. Washington Post : The country Is , prepared - pared to compromise with Ambassador Vmi Alon if he will agrco to take Ward McAllis ter and Ilobart Chutlluld Ditto Taylor with him.
