With a $100,0 < )0. ) < > ( ) < ) output of Its fauns alone , Ncbiaska is In pretty oed way to keep up with the proceion. . Tom Iloctor was elected two years a'o to a three yeaiV lei in as county coinmis- Hloner and full faith with the. people de mands that he serve out the position he now holds. Having served as a news-paper fence for liolln and Hartley and un'iieiotu other big and little crooKs , our linens re form contenipor.uy llnds it st'CJhd na- tuto to play I lie fence for Oor.ildine. Tlie dangeroiLs condition of tlie Six teenth street viaduct may be ignotod by the council , but the suits for damages will not be so oaslly evaded in case an accident should occur entailing loss of life or piopurty. Detiolt Is to have an election this fall without the name of I'lngree on the ticket. The governor , however , will not disappoint in.s irlcads that way whe.ii bis successor in the gubwnatorial chair is to be elected. The automatic gambling nm-liinus have been tolerated longer tli.in they should be. The law against ke.'plnj ; ga-i-bling devices Is a most severe one and the besi way to avoid its penalties is to live up to Its leiiulrenients. Nelnaska and its immediate neighbors will practically bo vast cattle feeding stalls this winter , the amount of stock iu thoihands of farmers for feeding pur poses being unpiecedenlcd. The corn belt manufactures meat for tlie wotld. The proposition to Issue botuU 'o take up the outstanding county poor faun in debtedness should be Mippotlcd aa a business jnoposltlon. It mr.itithe sav ing annually of several thjiis.iml dollars lars by i educing the Interest taw on : i Hunting debt. Carl Schuiv. and Senator ( i.illinger are BtlH having It hot and heavy In an epis tolary dispute over civil service reform , but they are not In It for affording pub lic entertainment when compared with Senator Gorman and Kdilor Abell in their literary duel. The republican ticket will occupy first place on the olllclal ballot In Nebraska by virtue of the fact that republicans polled a largervote , than any other party in the state. Occasionally the logic of cold figures can not be Ignored even by partisan opponents. The present county surveyor was &o lectetl to 111) ) a vacancy caused by the resignation of Ids piedece.ssor. For the few months that he hits been In control of the olllce he has had no complaints against his work and he Is Justly 111- lltled to election for the full term for which ho has been nominated on the > e- publlcan ticket. No large corporation doing btinlness on business principles would rcta11 In its employ at thu head of an Important branch of Its service a 111,111 who tcci s tel l > eat his creditors by innMi' , ' himself Karnlsheo-proof. Why the e.qnv'lon should disregard this general ink can not be explained by ( he mamige.nont r to the satisfaction of Its stockholders 01 thu public. The 10,000 legislative sulllllng com t mittee , made up of men whose records In the legUl.ituru need a great deal of explaining , have dished up another pot of broth for the popoeratle campaign la-Hie.

While tmluo Post may have rendeied .onu > de- Islons that are not popular , he has had he connive of his convictions and fear- e-ssly Interpreted the linv as he bo- leved It to be rltfht and eiinltablo. However much men may differ from lutljju Post , he cannot be truthfully IIP- u ed of playing the hypoeilte In order o pander to popular prejudice or to win public sympathy or applause. Ills den of judicial duty has been to Inter- tret thu law as he llnds It and render < ] ual justice to all litigants whether rich > r poor , coiporatlous or Individuals. When .linlsit' Post was before the peo- lie as n candidate six years ago. ho was roteit for by men of all parties who wanted to place a lawyer of ability and with Judicial experience on the supreme lench. The people who elected .ludge Post have no reason to regret their H'tlon. Kven his opponent on the fusion Icket publicly concedes his capacity mil worth. In accordance with cstab- Islied usage , judges of the supreme onrt who have served one term accept- ibly have , with rare exceptions , been egularly re-elected , and there Is no good reason why this salutary rule should not apply to .ludge Post. o.v Tin : In his speech at Cleveland , O. , on Sat- irday , Senator Allison made It plain that he does not expect any currency legis lation by the present congress , and It Is [ he understanding that he does not favor liny of the kind which the currency ie- formers propose. Mr. Allison * ald that if r paper circulation is not wholly sat Isfaetory , because it lacks the element > f llexlbllily. but lie declared that It N .inpiHsilili' for any alllnuatlvo legislation to be adopted during this congies < Im- piovlng or enlarging our banking J-ys- i-m , as It is impossible to rc-eslabli-.li ( lie > ld state bank system , on a safe Iri.sis seas as to secure a safe national clriulatlon if paper money. Referring to the | iledg , > ) f the goveinmenl to maintain the parity > f all the cuireney. Senator Allison said : "Itould be bad faith oy direct statute or by Indirect juugleiy to violate that [ iromlse so sm-rciiij maile and o often u-peated. The gieenb.ick , in fact , now forms a connecting link whereby tills iromise c.ui be ledeemed and should not be disturbed as long a.s this promise ex ists. " It is Mi'lte ' plain from this that the cur rency reformers who want the gieen- b-ieks eliminated fioni the currency c.in omit upon the opposition of Senator Al lison , as they also ( "in upon that of Speaker Heed and other leading repub licans in congress. As to the Impossi bility of any legislation for enlarging the banking system , that Is due to the situa tion in the senate. The house has shown a disposition to legislate in this direction , but the free silver element in the senate is stiong enough to in-event such legisla tion. That element is not only opposed to the national bank , but it OOM not want any enlargement. oC uie circulation except tlnougli the fiee ; iud unlimited coinage of siher. Prolubly srme of the s would support n proposition to re-establish ( lie old state bank system but lli.it Is out of the question. The attitude of Senator Allison on this subleet can hardly fail to be somewhat discouraging to the currency reformeis. OH/fj/jAi * AM ) in : < iritiicirr. The announcement , that I lie ( Ionium goveinmeiit Is seriously considering the matter of entering into negotiations with the ITnited States looking to reci procity arrangements is somewhat snr- piislng , the Impression having obtained that the efforts of thai goveinmeiit were lii-iii ? : directed to Uniting a way to sat isfy the agrarian demand for letallatlon. That demand Is still being urged , though perhaps .somewhat less aggiessively than Immediately after the American tarllV act \\ent Into effect and if the re port in regard to the disposition of the ( ii-i'iiitin government be eoirect it is evi dent Hint , the demand lias also lost in effecthencss. The fact is that ( lie ten dency of the agrarians to go to ex treines lias weakened their cause. They constitute a po\\ei'lul element , but what they ask Is .so obviously piomptcd by sellisiiness and is so distinctly In the in terest of a class , that they have arrayed against them all other elements of the population. Their pioposal of a tin In" war against the Culled Slates , the effect of which would be to Inciease the cost to HID Ci-rnmn people of everything that Is now Imported from this country , was not made Irom a patriotic deslie lo pi < > - mole the welfaie of ( iermany , Inn en tirely with a view to advancing agrarian Interests. It left out of consideration the Interests and welfare of the great body of consumers. Kill these are not blinder or Indiftctcnt , nor are they without in- llueiiee in the government and they will bu found , theie can be no doubt , vigor ously opposing any policy which would Increase the cost of living , It appears that the advocates of a tailffar have been industriously ilK seminating misleading statistics In re gard to the falling off In ( ionium ex ports , attributed lo the Dlngley tarlll. That there lias been a decline In the ex ports from ( iermany to this country Is mil at all remaiKable. In view of the heavy importations of ( icrman mer chandise heroic our tariff law went Into effect. This especially applies to sugar , the importation of which during the second quarter of 1S ! > 7 was , It appears , neatly double that of the third quarter of Ih'.m. ' The decline in the exports of sugar fiom CJermany to the Culled .Statc-H is , therefoie , what was to have bi'cn expected. .Moreover , It Is prob able that we shall never agiflu lake from that country as much sugar as wo have been taking for several yeais past , and If the expectation in regatd to the de velopment of our beet sugar Industry .shall be realized It Is a matter of ouly a few years when we can dispense alto gether with ( lei-man sugar. AB a Berlin paper very tinly cays , a tarlll war such aa thu agrarians want would only render the situation more acute. Of course , bucli u wur would nut be one-sided and we venture to think that at this time the United States Is In much better condition than Germany to enter Into such n contest. We have never believed , however , that the Herman gov ernment would adopt such a pulley. That country might not piln a gieat deal through n reciprocity agreement or treaty , but It Is the wise thing to do. A1MKHXUX SIDXKV I'ADUOLK. The announcement of the sudden death of ovCnlted States Senator Al gernon Sidney Paddock will cause pro found sorrow among Nebraskaus every where , especially among the pioneers with whom he was associated In the struggles of tciillorlal days. Coming to Nebraska from the Umpire state In the prime of youth to help build up n new- state , he contributed largely to Its de velopment nnd material progress. To him the metroiwlls of Nebraska Is In debted for many substantial Improve ments and the city of Heatrlce , where he located Just before he. was elected to the United States senate , will remain n monument to his public spirit and en- terprNe. In public life Algernon Sidney Pad dock had a most successful career. StartIng - Ing out as .secretary of the territory , chosen for this position by William 11. Sewaul , he tilled the responsible olflco of acting govetnor , was elevated to the Culled States senate and after six years' Interim was elected to a second term. Although not a brilliant spuaker or ag- gre.sslve debater , Senator Paddock made himself as useful to his state as any man Who has yet represented It In the upper house of the national legislature. While The Hoe was never In full accord with him and the faction with which he was Identified It can consistently pay this tribute to the memory of a man to whom Omaha and Nebraska owes much. TIIK MAHYhAfi'l ) I'AMPAMHf. The campaign In Maryland Is by no means the least Interesting or Important of the political contests of this year. In no other state Is the battle being waged more earnestly. Senator Gorman Is making the "light of Ids' life , " actuated by the desire to rehabilitate himself as the undisputed leader of the democracy and also by the ambition to be no-elected to the senate. Mr. Gorman has declaivd that he is willing to lelinquish leadership and senatorial ambition if thereby tin- welfare of ills parly can be subserved , but the lialllmore Sun says theie is no sincerity in the decimation and in tills it is undoubtedly coricct. Gorman is essentially a politician and there is 11011 moie adroit or more uns'Tiipnlous. Such a man could not be contented out of poli tics , i With regard to the outlook , it seems to be rather favorable to democratic suc cess , owing to a factional crrnlllct in th ? republican paity. Senator Wellington , the republican leader , lias managed to create a good deal of disaffection in the paity and it Is piobable that the tepub- Mean vote will be considerably li-ss this year than last. The sound money demo ciats , however , will support the repub lican ticket as they did last year , for al though the democratic paity did not. in its platform , declare for free silver , there is no doubt the party fa\ois it. It was shown hist year tlut a majority of tin- voters of Maryland are for sound moiu-.v and undoubtedly that i.s the case now , but the unfortunate breach in the repub lican ranks may give the democracy vic tory this jear. itY A . > / ; / ( / ( i < ; .s Two weeks from Tuesday the pioposl- tion to issue $100.01)0 ) of county bonds in aid of thu exposition will be voted on by the citizens of Douglas county. ' . ' i-ose bonds are absolutely needed to enable the exposition management to r.irry out the woilc already In hand. ICven with these bonds voted , the exposition must raise at least $100,000 additional by stock sub scription or donation in order to open the gales pioniptly on .lime 1. With all the inllnonc.

Cor months their- have been inutlerlngs of dissatisfaction with the superintendent in cliaigu of the buildings nnd grounds. At tirst It was principally resentment of his arrogant and Insulting hearing , cjnpli-d with his undlstriilsed preference for Imported woiklngincn. Gradually it dawned upon the coninmnit.v thai Geraldine - aldine had an object in view la surround ing himself with non-icsident tMiiilelnnl.- who could be depended on lo second lil-t efforts for contractors with whom lie stood in. The discontent giew from day to daj until It readied the stage of open revolt.

These facts must have been known to President Wattles and Hie iimnaM r in charge of the depaitmunt in winch Ger aldlne Is employed , but they showed no disposition to meet the emergency , sivm- Ing lallitT to piefer to let the bonds be defeated Hum to dlsjicii.se with II.e man who had piovcd himself a costly fraud. It was the conviction that action had to bi taken to save the exposition from threatened disaster that Impelled the editor of The Ilee to prefer charges against Geraldlne and demand his .sum mary icmoval both on the giound of economy as well as for cause. The effort to convince the board that Geraldlne Is a menace to thu siiccc.ss of the exposition has up to this time proved abortive. His baikeis still insist that ho la an Iwni'.it man , although nincty- niuo out of every bundled people In the community distrust him and those whu luivo Inquired into hU career know him to be a dead-beat , a charlatan , and tit toily unreliable.

Culm might have been eager to jump at n proposition for autonomy a year ere o ago , but the offer of autonomous gov- einmeut now runs up against a demand for Independence or nothing. And what I.s more the Cubans have became so self- conlldent by their success In icslstlng efforts to subdue thun that their de mands are apt to Increase rather than decrease. It would not be surprising to hear the suggestion that Spain buy peace in Cuba by paying a cash honm in addition to recognizing Its Independ ence. Uryau's advent on the Nebraska stump ' Is h'er.ilded with u grand flourish of trumpets and the usual advance show bills.Vo are told that assurances have been received at popoeratle hindquarters that ( lie political nainnin will attiact larger crowds than over befote and that many will drive thirty miles to hear him.
