If anybody nttcmptH to count Hoi- comb out by fraud 100,0X ! ( ) freemen will want to know tliu rousou why. Judge llrcwor's decision on the maxi mum rnto law may no\v be looked for. Its delay m-cds no explanation at our hands. The klnj ? Is dund long live the king. Tlic election WIIM no sooner over than log-rolling began for pri'sidcncy of the council. This Is a bad time to increase public expenses In tlio lire department or In any other department of the municipal government. Franklin MacVeagh and William .1. Bryan may extend their bands from Illinois to Nebraska and shake In mu tual sympathy. The Chinese government has Just been forced to contract n loan at the rate of 7 per cent interest , and China is not ruled by a populist governor , either. The Chicago Herald refers to Chair man Wilson ah one of the "Imiocent vic tims. " Hut It will scarcely have tbe courage to place Senator IIII1 In the same class. We were Just beginning to grow Im patient over the lack of war news from South America , but the renewed revolu tionary movement in Kraall will supply the deficiency nicely. It's dead wrong to force Secretary Johnson Into a contest campaign after he had exhausted all Ills brain tissue In making campaign thunder for the de funct Majors propaganda. If tbe democrats want to be responsi ble for any more legislation during Uie present administration they will Imvi1 to have their measures enacted Into law before the expiration of the Fifty-third congress. Candidates for the United States seu- ntorshlp from Nebraska may now be ex pected to spring up on every bush. Don't be bashful. There Is room for all. Step up promptly and make your bows before the public. It President Cleveland wonts to fol low the precedent he has set of appoint ing ah his defeated but devoted follow ers to fat foreign missions the diplo matic corps of the United States will have to encounter an early and hirgt1 increase In numbers. Now let us hear no more * about the credit of the state being ruined by Hie election of Holcomb. Kven the Hurling ton Journal admits that nothing very serious need be apprehended by the fail lire of Majors to connect himself will the supervision of state Institutions. An honest count of election returns Is the bulwark of republican self-govern ment Any man who would counsel , alter or abet the tampering with ballots ant election returns is a public enemy mor dangerous than the traitor who gave ah und comfort to the enemy during UK war. Kven the democrats in Illinois ndml that they have gained nothing by Hi unfair re-apportionment of leglshttlv nnd congressional districts which wa perpetrated by the democrats of the Ins legislature. Lenders of all the polltica parties everywhere- should take heed o the lesson. The friends of fair elections nnd ai honest count should not be deceived b the 'possum policy which the rnllroa organs are playing under Instruction is from hendiiuarlers. The plot to count Judge Holcomb out is still on , and The Heo knows whereof It speaks. Ilomem- her that eternal vigilance Is the only safeguard of liberty. Of course the lU'lllsh press Is ns sorry over the defeat of the democracy , and particularly the retirement of Chairman Wilson , ns It was exuberant over the defeat of McKInley nnd the election of President Cleveland , All the news papers over tlio water are trying to persuade - suado themselves that the result Is not to bo taken as disapproval of the demo cratic tariff policy , but rather as a pro test against the manner in which it was put Into operation. If they can really derive any consolation from this thought they will certainly be permitted to have full benefit of It A. n'AKMXO TO ItRI'UllUrANS. Itopnbllcnns of Nebraska , do you pro pose to repudiate your national anil stntc platforms tlmt pledge the party In favor of fair elections , n free ballot nnd an honest count ? Can you consistently countenance the high-handed plot to steal the governorship In the face of the returns that show that Silas A. Holcomb received a plurality of over 2,700 over his highest competitor In the race ? Would the party ever be able to atone for such n political crime ? Would It not split the party nnd force It on the de fensive two years hence , when discord and dissension would be fatal to the na tional ticket ? What is there to be gained by counting Majors In and count ing Ilolcomb out ? With a republican legislature and republican stale oflU-ers Holcomb cannot possibly cripple the party or obstruct Its policy. With Ilol comb counted out yon put a club In the hands of every populist and democrat and strike a fatal blow at republican su premacy and republican Institutions. THK t'liAVD cm : The most audacious Imposture that has ever been attempted In Nebraska politics Is the cry of the railroad gang that Ilolcomb will owe his election to fraud In the count of the votes. It Is the cry of "Stop , thief ! " to which the adroit pickpocket resorts when he wants to get away with Ids booty. Talk about fraud in Iho election of Ilolcomb after all that has transpired In this state within the last thirty days ! .lust look nt the figures on the election table , which show a heavier vote In the state than was cast two years ago In a presi dential election. Kompinher , also , that from ItJXKK ) to 15,000 voters have emi grated from the drouth-stricken region and from 11,000 to 3,000 more located at Chicago during the World's fair and never came back. We make bold to ns sert that for each and every one of these departed voters another was Imported from Montana , Wyoming , Colorado , Mis souri. Kansas and Iowa under contract to cast their voles for the railroad can didate. Talk about fraud when pass bribes were distributed among vulnerable voters by the bushel and more than $100,000 of boodle was disbursed to cor rupt the voters. Talk about fraud when all the money and all the Influence were on the side of the corporate combine , while neither the populist nor demo cratic campaign committee had money enough to pay postage and stationery bills ! We make bold to assert that an hon est count of the vote cast by the legal voters of Nebraska , excluding the Im ported mercenaries , would show not less than 15,000 plurality for Ilolcomb. and If the purchased vote was excluded he would have more than . " ,000. This is the unvarnished truth and if the con spirators who are planning to count Hol comb out by fraudulent returns venture Into a contest -we shall establish the truth of this assertion licyoud peradven- ture. The fraud cry is simply a repeti tion of the tactics of the wolf that charged the iamb with rolling the water. The lamb In tills Instance , however , wlli not allow itself to be devoured without giving the wolf a good deal more trouble than lie can possibly anticipate. The charge of fraud is on the other boot leg and the wolves had better desist from attempting the experiment. Attorney Ooni'nil Olncy's letter to Judge Dallas of the United States clr cult court for the district of rennsyl- vanla , In which lie dNiMisses the relation of railway receivers to labor organlza lions , must bo conceded to be a very conservative and sensible docu ment. The state of facts upon which the opinions expressed an based Is this. One of the receiv ers , who Is also president of tin Heading railroad , had given written no tlce , signed by himself as both president and receiver , that on and after a speci fied dnto the company's "well known policy that It will not consent that pet- sons in Its service shall owe allegiance to other organizations which may make claims upon them which are Incompat ible with their duties to their employ ers" would be strictly adhered to. The employes who happened to belong tr labor organizations and who were thus threatened with dismissal unless thej should give up their membership in those organizations most naturally pro tested to the court under which tlio re celverslilp had been Instituted. The opinion of Attorney General Olney wa.- called forth on the Invitation of tin , court. Sir. Olney disapproves of the order ol tlio receiver and characterizes It as "nn fair" and "discriminating" and calcn lated to Intensify the discontent and re sentmentot the employes of the railroai against a court which would seem to have In some manner taken sides against them. Forcing them to give uj their membership In their labor organ IzatlonM as the alternative of losing the ! employment deprives them of a lega right which nothing but tlie most nrgen requirements of business policy conic justify. It would deprive them of tin benefits which will accrue to them dnr Ing sickness and Idleness or to thel families upon their deaths benefits fo which they have been paying dues ant assessments annually for years past What , moreover , are the objects of th organization against which the order I directed ? AH stated In the preamble t Its constitution , they refer merely to fra- ter al union , systemule bo. ovoleii'-eand harmonious relations between employ- ers and employes. "Such are the alms and purposes of the Brotherhood of ICa 1- way Trainmen. Certainly these objects must bo regarded as laudable In the highest degree and as deserving the ap- probation and support of every good clt- l/.en. If the means to these pralsewor- thy ends bo examined there Is nothing In them to which the most captious rcritic can object except the provision made for strikes. U Is well to note that ! even thesu provisions nro of an end- onently conservative character. " The lilt - ltle torney general then goes on to recite the substance of the recent decision of Jus- tlcu Ilarlun that strikes are not neces- tmrlly unlawful. Ho also calls attention to the fact that unorganized labor may > unite on the spur of ( tie moment for the purpose of precipitating n strike , and gives It ns his opinion that organizations such ns the one nt Issue operate to min imize the possibility of such conflicts , wlille the approval of the proposed order must tend to Increase those possibilities. The acceptance by Judge Dallas of Mr. Oluey's recommendations cannot but contribute much toward restoring among the wage workers of the country that confidence In the fairness of the federal courts which was so rudely shaken at various times during the last few years. -i T/f.14 > llVt > STA TKSMKlf. The number ot' democratic statesmen who were stranded by the republican tidal wave is large , but only n few of them had attained such fame or promi nence In the councils of their party as to give them a claim to special consid eration. Of these William L. Wilson of West Virginia , chairman of the ways nnd menus committee , Is easily pre-emi nent. The name of Mr. Wilson has within n year become familiar to the people o'f two continents ns a radical tariff reformer and In large part the author of the t a rill' bill which , had It became a law , would have brought the United States nearer to free trade than it has been for forty years. Mr. Wilson was Hie choice of President Cleveland for the chairmanship of the ways nnd menus committee and ids attainment of tlmt position was the beginning of his undoing. lie Is now serving his sixth term ns a representative from the Second end West Virginia district and will be succeeded In the next house by n repub lican. It Is quite probable that Mr. Wil son will be heard from again In politics. The great regard of the president for him may be manifested In giving him some important position. Hut Mr. Wil son's constituents , a large majority of whom are deeply Interested In protec tion to American industries , have so de cisively repudiated his economic theories that It Is doubtful whether ho will get Into congress again , should lie desire to do so , at least for some years. Perhaps next in rank to the West Vir ginian among the stranded statesmen is Mr. Itlanrt of Missouri , the Indomitable and persistent advocate of the free anil unlimited coinage of silver , whose name has been associated with all the silver legislation of the past sixteen years. Mr. Hland is serving ids eleventh term as a representative In congress , but his voice will not bo heard In the proceed ings of that body after March 4 next , his constituents having become tired of his silver and free trade theories and wisely desired to try n republican repre sentative. With him will retire to pri vate life two other democratic repre sentatives from Missouri who have a somewhat extended reputation as the advocates of policies which a large ma jority of the people of tills country do not favor , Mr. Hatch and Mr. Dockery , both of whom have been long in con gress nnd enjoyed considerable promi nence In the councils of their party. Mr. William M. Springer of Illinois Is one of the stranded statesmen who lins occupied tlie position of a party leader and is serving ids tenth and probably last term In congress. Mr. Springer was chairman of the ways and means com mittee In the Fifty-second congress and conceived the plan of reforming the tar iff by numerous separate bills , a scheme that failed to accomplish anything ex cept to seriously damage its author's claim to statesmanship Springer wns very active in the hist presidential cam paign , but Mr. Cleveland would not al low him to bo continued as the chair man of the ways nnd means committee. Another Illinois democratic statesman. Mr. Fithinn , who made himself known lo the country as the author of a free ship bill and Is an advocate of free trade and free sliver , will go into retire ment after March next , probably to permanently remain there. A stranded statesman who ought to have been retired long ago Is Mr. Wil liam S. Ilolnnm of Indiana , celebrated ns the "great objector , " whose states manship consists In objecting to every sort of appropriation , except In oases where his own district would be bone- liteil. Doubtless his peculiarity ns a legislator 1ms not been altogether value less but Ids fellow partisans got tired of him and sent him to the rear In this congress. Ho will be accompanied In his retirement by the obstreperous and vulgar Ityntim of Midi urn , whom no self- respecting constituency would have kept In congress live terms. Ohio furnishes to the list of stranded statesmen Tom Johnson , from the Cleveland district , an avowed free trader and single tax advo cate. Johnson has the merit of having more candor and honesty than the great majority of his party , but he was caught by the republican tidal wave , and the district lie represents will have In the next congress a representative who" be llevcs In protecting American industries and American labor. The list could be extended , but It Is sutllcleiit to refer only to the more prom Inent members of the party In powei whom the people have given leave to at tend to their private affairs after Mnrcl 1 next. It Is the tlefent of such inei that gives significance- tile reaction h popular sentiment. n'oiiK J'on Tin : coM3iKnciAi > crun.

Hetter Invent some other excuse ) reject the electric lighting bids , if one s necessary. "I heard a man say he was ready to et $10,000 that Ilolcomb would not be lie next governor , " Is the way the rail- oad undor-sirappors are putting It up oday. This Is the tip that Is being sent 11 along the line to the railroad claqrers o pave the way for a trumped-up eon- cst ordered by the Hurlington czar. It unkes no difference what Holcomb's ilnrnllty Is ( he attempt Is to be made o disfranchise- nearly 100,000 voters In h s state The whirlwind already reaped y the Holdrege gang is apparently not nough. The vote given Mr. W. A. Page for epresentattve In the next legislature , Hhough not sutllcleiit to elect him , is , leverthclcHs , a gratifying evidence of ( hat gentleman's popularity. Mr. Page an 500 votes ahead of the next highest nan on Ills own ticket , nnd nearly l.fiOO 'otes ahead of the lowest man on his Icket This means that he wns pro- erred by about 1,000 voters who did ot vote for his associates. Defeat under uch circumstances can by no means be isconraglng. The political czar of Nebraska must bdlcnte. The people of Nebraska are vllling to give the railroads fair treat- lent , but the railroad managers must ttenrt strictly to their legitimate busl- ess as managers of railroads and re- ire from politics.

Tlvo principal topic of European speculn- on naturally continues to bo tlie character nil policy of the now czar , The dead Alcx- ndt-r has been eulogized , criticised nnd ills- soil with ns kindly a farewell ns may be. Hi services as preserver of the pence ( or uropo are greatly recognized ; nnd Ills nar- ow orientalism , his determination to crush ut from RtiKsta everything that was not lav , the tyranny nnd oppression with which e treated his people , ns positively con- cmne'd. But Alexander Is dead , his reign ndcd , his pet ambitions dead with him , nnd Is policy , domestic nnd foreign , n thing of he past , unle < s hit son and successor sees t lo revive them and this Is the very point pen which Europe Is groping for light. It a not known whether Nicholas Is n religious Igot nn Alexander was a persecutor of ews and StundlsU , and nil outside the atlonat church of which he was the hcnd ; r n reactionist nnd foe of reforms , or n eptidlator of pledges like thojo to Finns nnd jtvonlnns which Alexander broke. To whom 111 Nicholas turn In friendship among the ulers of Europe ? What countries will ho ultlvato nn nlllance with and to which will o bo Indlrrorent or unfriendly ? Will he bo or pence , or will ho bo greedy to extend msslan power If he Invites war by so doing ? L would bo comparatively cosy to answer ko questions about the successor to any ther throne In Europe , but the absence of ny authentic Information obout the charac- er , the predilections , or the probable Inten- ibns of Nicholas II make prophecies con- crnlng his course ns n ruler of the Kusslns rlnclpally guess work. # * * Agitation for n constitution will continue n Hiiisla till one Is obtained. The people re not yet qualified ( or any considerable CRrcc of self-government , and , whatever wo lay think of nn absolute monarchy In the bstract , wo must admit that In Iho past t haj been the best form of government ( or tussla. But the czar can make many hangcs In the Interest of liberty without loldlng any of his powers. There Is great > ed of a reorganization of the bureaus ( trough which the government Is carried on. 'ho young czar may conclude to attempt omo reforms. It the nihilists , however , e-ep him In continual fear for his life they vlll prevent the reforms which they desire. t Is Important that the czar should bo fa- illlar with his country , but If he cannot eave his palace without fear of assassination o will nnd It dinlcult to obtain the In- ormatioti necessary. U Is not likely that here wll be nny change during the period ot mourning , whatever may bo done afterward. * * M. Jules Roche , reporter for the budget ommlttee of the French Chamber , furnishes n the Paris Matin an Interesting comparison ( the French and German military forces and xpcndlture. He says that the French ordl- ary war budget Is about 518,000,000 ( rancs , r CM.000,000 franca with the extraordinary var expenditure. The number of men pro- Ided for in 18S5 Is 509.000 , or 31,000 below lie minimum fixed by the organic law of the nny. The German ordinary war expendl- ure , ho says , Is fixed at 600,027,581 ( rancs , nd the extraordinary at 187,930,257 ( rancs , he total being 787,057,838 ( rancs. As It con- alns no extraneous expenses , nothing has to e deducted from that total. That ( act , how- ver , Is not. in XI. Itoche's opinion , the most Ignlflcant difference between the two budgets , lompared with the war budget o ( 1891 , Franco augments her ordinary war expendl- 11 re by 10,000,000 ( runes , and diminishes her xtraordlnary expenditure by 5,000,000 francs , 'he Germans diminish their extraordinary var budget by 21,000,000 ( rancs , but It still mounts to the enormous sum of 188,000,000 rancs , whereas In Franco It Is 45,000,000 rancs. What Is more Important , says M. locho , the Germans Increase the permanent rdlnary war expenditure by 65,000,000 francs. lr the financial law of March 26 , 1893. this vas Hxod at 535,000,000 ( rancs , but In March t was raised to 600,000,000 ( rancs. Contln- tlng the comparison , M. Hoche declares that effective strength of the army fixed by ho German military law Is amply provided or. The 2,498 companies of German Infan- ry are maintained at a strength of at least 30 men , whereas the 2,42(5 ( companies of Drench Infantry rarely reach tbe effective o ( 25 men each declared In the French organic nllltary law to be Indispensable. In France , he says , the military law Is made subservient o financial necessities , whereas In Germany he military law Is paramount , , and Is cn- orced regardless ot cost. * * Tim correspondent o ( the London Times In nome takes a hopeful view of the financial , ltuatton In Italy. Ho snys : "The absolute ilncerlty with which Slg. Sonnlno went to he bottom o ( all the obligations , and the pes simism of his early statements , which wore realized In every particular. Justify us In ac- icptlng the conclusions based on them.

For the last few cears Italy , financially speaking , has been joverncd by and In the Interest o ( the banks , with a frivolity and Indifference to the sound and permanent Interests of the country which , f continued much longer , would have made inevitable the bankruptcy which disinterested critics prophesied three years ago. I believe that ! ( European complications are avoided , and the ministry Is allowed to complete Its program , Italy will flnd Its finances this year , if not prosperous , yet perectly sound. " The French commissioner who was sent to Madagascar to try to persuade the Hova government to consent to a protectorate has failed In his mission , and left the Island. The French government has , therefore , de cided to ask the Chamber of Deputies to de clare war and vote money , the probability being that $6,000,000 will be asked for as a first Installment. The Hova army Is small , but It has been trained by English ani ! French officers , and there Is a good supply ol artillery and modern rifles. The men are well fitted with guerrilla warfare und In the dense ( orests. where the French troops will have to cut their roads , the surrounding bush will swarm with Hovas.

It Is a curious ( act that the late czar Alexander III , whose Tartarlo cast o ( fea- tu'rcs seemed to Indicate a strong Infusion Into his velr.s of Kalmuck blood , was In reality ot almost purely German descent The reigning ( amlly o ( Russia are Roman1 offs merely by courtesy , being descended ( rom Anna , the sister ot the Empress Eliza beth who was the last Muscovite sovereign o ( purely Russian blood. Anna became the wife o ( a German , the Duke Frederick of Holsteln , and the son of this marriage , the short-lived czar , I'cter III , was , therefore only half Russian. The wife of I'ctcr III the ( amous Empress Catherine II , was also n German ; their BOH , Paul I , therefore was but one-quarter Russian. Paul I Nicholas I ( the son of Paul ) , nnd Alexander II ( the son of Nicholas nnd ( other of the late czar ) each In turn married Dermal wives ; nnd consequently Alexander III was not more than one thirty-second part o Romanoff blood. The characteristics of Alex ander III , however , completely belled his descent , and lent no support to the theory of 'heredity. Ills tastes were those of a Moujlk ; his prejudices were anti-German , am In hla sympathies no less than In persona appearance he was every Inch a Russian.
