To our CliluiKO visitors , Como nsaln nnd come often without waiting for nn- other Ouiulia exposition. < lny at tliu exposition would have been more cnJoYablc had Uic Chicago cage visitors had tins thoughtfuliicss to leave their Chicago weather at homo. The United States Is going right along with Its policy of ( llarnminent , irrespoc- tlvo of the czar's dlsarniaineiit proposal , and without waiting for the nld or cou- Bcut of any other nation. The positive announcement that it will bo a wet launching that will greet the battleship Illinois probably accounts for the rush of Illinois people to Newport News to bo present on the momentous occasion. The Omaha exposition has already outraced all other .iinerlcan expositions save only the Centennial exposition and World's fair In i > olut of aggregate at tendance. And the end Is still one month off. People who have not seen the exposi tion should not put oil' their visit In the hazardous hope that It will bo open again next year. It Is well to remem ber that a bird in tlio hand Is worth two In the bush. The lists of "soldiers who died yester day" In the papocratlc yellows must bo becoming painfully abbreviated from the standiKilnt of tlio fakirs who arc trying to make political capital out of the misfortunes of the volunteers. Soim'lor ' Allen has made speaking ap pointments right through peace jubilee week. The populist sonutor might with propriety Interrupt his campaigning long enough to help receive the president during Ills brief visit to Nebraska. It Is in accord with the eternal Illness of things for the popoeratle editor who borrowed money from Hartley to take up the cudgels for John L. Webster , who also had occasion to secure llnanclal accommodations through Mr. Hartley. Omaha's bank clearings again show up well In the lead In the weekly compara tive clearings statement. The man who persists that business prosperity Is only temporary will have a hard time con verting Omaha business men to his View. In his effort to obliterate the nest or thieves and crooks that had lodged In . Omalini for exposition business 'Chief of . Police White will have the support and encouragement of all good citizens. Omaha can well spare thi > entire thiev ing element of Its population. As The Hee has time and again ro- mackcd , It Is Just an easy to produce artistic decorations on our business bouses asto cover them with hideous combinations of color effects. Let us have decorations that attract and please rather 'than those that shock and repel. ' When republicans of this county and stivte know the true Inwardness of the demand for a reconstruction of the legislative ticket they will concede that The Hoe Is actuated not by personal spleen , but only by motives that spring from n sincere desire to save 1he party from dlmster , The popocratle legislative and county i .tickets have been revised by the sub stitution of two new names In places Tacatcd by eandlii-tes nominated In con- Tcutlou. The republican legislative ticket can be reorganized If those re- eponslble for the success of the party in tlio Impending campaign will tuke tno matter vigorously la hand. run WKIISTKH nvnnk.tn. Th * legislature elected tills fail will elect a sena'or ' to succeed W. V. Allen. Who will It be ? John L. Webster Is the republican machine candidate. John L. Webster wants cheap wheat. Ho said BO In a speech at Omnlm two years ago. Nebraska Is a wheat j producing state. The products of Nebrntika nro nlmoet wholly agricultural , and It Is on agriculture that the prosperity of the state la based. Ho you farmers of York county , no matter what your political alllllatlons arc , want cheap wheat ? You are now experi encing the cheap wheat era ; John fi. Web ster would continue tlio present conditions. Auk Tucker and Sandall If they nro for him for United StntM senator. You have a right lo know. York Democrat. This Is the keynote of the campaign popoerats are waging In tills state for the re-ek'ctlon of Senator Allen and re publican legislative candidates must meet tile Issue as It Is forced to the front. It Is because The Hee sees In this candidacy of.Jolm L. Welnter a menace to republican success , that It has turned tlio searchlight of publicity upon him to make him harmless. The boasts of .lohn \ , . Webster that he has spent twenty-live years In the service of tl. < republican party without seeking olllco or receiving honor or emolument have been effectually ex ploded. On the contrary the political annals of this stale show that Webster has been a chronic olllce-seeker and while not always successful has been honored and rewarded far beyond his desiTts. The olllclul records disclose that he has drawn fully ifUO.UOO out of public tiviisuries : .exclusive of perquis ites and side-cuts by favor of the repub lican parly. The records also disclose questionable If not criminal methods of lllchlng money from the state treasury for the benellt of Webster. This is especially true regarding his lawless appropria tion of school money collected by him as attorney for the state and his failure to turn the money Into the treasury as required by the .constitution and the laws. It takes an equally aggravating form In his deal with Hartley whereby a warrant Issued In Webster's name was registered at illegal Interest and money drawn out of the treasury In violation of the law , which expressly prohibited Its payment until after the service had been rendered. While It will always remain an open question whether John L. Webster acted in good faith with the public In the fa mous maximum rate case for services In which he drew § 10,000 from the tax payers , there might have been some mitigation had' ' he at least conformed to the law In collecting his fee. In this , as in several other instances of lawlessness Moore and Hartley were no more cen surable , to use the mildest term , than were their Ixjucflchirlcs. When the re publican party repudiated Kiigetio Moore and Joseph S. Hartley for betraying the trust reposed in them It also repudiated every man who Inveigled them Into crime or knowingly profited by It. Manifestly , therefore , the candidacy of John L. Webster In this year of party regeneration Is untimely and out of place. No candidate for the legislature can afford to stand up nnd avow him self .1 supporter of John L. Webster without Inviting defeat. The Hee as serts boldly that Webster can no longer be considered the competitor of William V. Allen and the popocratle press and popocratlc orators may as well look for another bugbear to set up. TllK QUKHKO COXf'KHRXOR. There is not much definite Informa tion regarding the work thus far of the joint commission In session at Quebec , but such as there Is Is of a nature to encourage the hope of practical results. There has been , so far as known , no agreement reached upon any of the questions under consideration by the commission , but It is said with reference to some of those which were expected to be most troublesome that an adjust ment is probable. For instance , the seal question , it is thought , will be sat isfactorily disposed of , while the Alas kan boundary dispute is not expected to bo dllllcult of settlement It Is also Iwlleved there will not be much trouble In reaching an agreement as to the mod ification of the treaty of ISIS , forbid ding the maintenance of war ships on the rent Lakes. The adjustment of these and one or two minor questions would do much to strengthen friendly rela tions. But whiut of the more Important ques tion of reciprocity , of closer trade rela tions ? There does not appear to b. any better prospect of accomplishing any thing than there was when the com mission llrst met. The Interests on both sides which are opposed ito reciprocity huvo made themselves heard and there Is no doubt that they exer.t a very strong Influence. The American farmers who do not want any concessions made to the agricultural producers of Canada constitute mi element entitled to re spectful consideration. Some of them have experienced the effects of red- procity and all of tlhm know what it would mean to their Interests .to . nui- terlally reduce the duties on competing Canadian products. They learned this under tlio Wilson tariff nnd the lesson will not soon be forgotten. On the other side are a number of Industries whose promoters stoutly resist any con cessions to similar American Industries. Indeed all the manufacturing interests of tlio Dominion aiv unfriendly to reel- procity that should embrace any but natural products. Thus there Is u for midable opposition on both sides which ' cannot be Ignored and which promises to defea'C all efforts at this time to reach ai agreement for closer trade re- latlons. It Is possible that some ad- vunco In that direction will be made , but It does not seem at all probable that a reciprocity agreement will result rom ' ! he deliberations of the commission. A question which has been quite us disturbing as any of these the com mission has to consider Is that of rail- road transportation and the shipment of freight In Imnd. In regard to this matter - tor It Is said that an agreement has been nreached under which the principles of the Interstate commerce net will be nc- eecpted by the Canadian railroads. If these corporations 1'iavo decided to do this , as In fairness tlioy should long ngo ha M ilnan. It will perhaps put uu end to what has been a fruitful source of Irrlli tntlon. It Is very probable that the nc-1 tlon of the InterHlate Commerce com-11 mission ( ) In the recent rate war has had a wholesome effect upon the Canadian railroads > , at Ir.ist In teaching them , what they had not before realized , that tln > American roads with which they compile 11 iv not altogether at their mt'iry. o.v.i/7.1. The givitt turnout of representative business ini'ii nnd oinlncnt citizens or Chicago In celebration of Chicago ilny nt Oiniihii will always bu regarded as a most gratifying compliment to tiie promoters meters of thu 'L'ransmlsslssippl Kxposl- tlon , for which Chicago furnished the Ideal nnd the Inspiration. No class of visitors to Omaha's expo sition appreciate the magnitude or the achievement which Is presented In the miniature World's fair as well as the ChlcagoaiiH who were Mcntillud with the colossal enterprise which has gone down Into history as the greatest exhi bition of the world's progress In art , mannfiK'turus , education , science and Industry. While Chicago opened Its Columbian exposition on the eve of the llnanclal cyclone that swept tln > whole continent , Omaha took up Its exposition project ho- foie the panic of 1S1K ! had spent Its force and opened Its gales In thi' fare of a war whose extent and effect no one could foresee. Chicago had0 ! ! , - 000,000 at Us command for carrying out the plans of the World's fair projectors , while Omaha had less than one-thirtieth of that sum at Us disposal and was de pendent for most of its llnanclal sup port upon the public spirit and gen eroslty of Its own citizens. Much of the .sueee.vs of Omaha reflects , after all , the commendable reciprocity \ I exhibited by the people of Chicago and Illinois in fostering and stimulating Omaha's enterprise and giving substan tial aid to make the TnuiHinlsHissippl Exposition a possibility and to Insure its success after it had been fully launched. Not only Is Omaha Indebted to Chicago for material aid , but for that which can not be estimated In money worth the cordial and constant encouragement of its press and the moral backing ac corded at every stage by the public men of Chicago and Illinois , whose In fluence and assistance have from its In- ceptlon been freely given upon every I occasion. j In the end Chicago cannot fall to [ share the benefits resulting from the Omaha exposition. As one of the com mercial suburbs of the future metropo lis of America , the prosperity of Omaha and the country Immediately tributary to It Is sure to Increase the growth and prosperity of Chicago. The upbuilding and development of the transmisstssippl country simply means the extension of tiie empire upon which Chicago , as well as Omaha , depends for commercial and industrial expansion. COMl'tSTlTlOJf. An organ of expansion observes that sugar culture In the Philippines has re- malned In Its primeval condition iwcause1 the supply of labor was so ; great , that there was no incentive to economlxe labor , and there was no United States at hand , as in the case of Cuba , to In vest money in plantations and develop the business in accordance with modern . ideas. There Is no doubt , says that paper , that the culture of the 'sine can Immensely extended and the methods of production would be modernized very rapidly If capital were directed toward the Islands and there were n gtvater de gree of confidence In their future. Such an argument for the United States retaining jtossesslon of the Phil ippines will not commend itself to those who have hoped for the development of . an American sugar Industry that would supply the home demand , give American farmers another source of Income and furnish employment for a great deal of American capital and labor In our own country. If wo nro to build up a formidable competition In the Philip pines , In addition to that of Cuba and Porto Itlco , whose production of sugar will in a few years be very much larger than It has ever been , there will be an end to the American sugar Industry. Our farmers who have gone into ( lie in dustry will have to abandon It , because they cannot compete with the cheap labor of the cane sugar producing islands , while all the capital Unit lias been Invested in the industry will be lost. No amount of tariff protection likely to be given American sugar pro ducers would save from the disastrous effects of such competition , and there would bo < absolutely no compensation to the country for this destruction of an American Industry. The sugar planters of Hawaii and the Philippines will con tribute nothing to the welfare of the American people. They will employ no American labor and whatever capital should go out of this country for Invest ment In those islands-would probably remain there. Doubles * wo should get some additional trade , but It Is easy to exaggerate the Importance of this. Destruction of the American sugar In dustry is not the only danger to be ap prehended from building up Philippine competition. Wo have heretofore pointed out the probability that Indus tries will be established there to supply the Asiatic trade ) and to what ever extent - tent this Is done our home Industries will be unfavorably affected. It may bu some yours before much Is accomplished in this direction , but there can be no doubt as to what will ultimately taUe place. . Visionary Avar correspondents are ex pressing fears that the projected peace Jubilees may provo premature because of imsslblo .complications In the peace negotiations that may preclpltnte re newed hostilities between the United SUites und Spain. Some people always insist on borrowing trouble without the slightest occasion for it. The popocratle. .steering committee claims to have made n search of the state house records and to have found bills for buttcrine bought for the ( Jruml Island Soldiers' homo by republican of ficials lu 1S03 ami 1S1V1. This Und Is ' held up ns nJustification for the general - oral distribution vf butterlne among alt' ' the state Institutions by thu popocrnts.

In this case 'She objections raised against the nominee who has been retired were not specially personal , but rath.'r based on party considerations that effectually prevented him from getting the full vote to which the ticket wits entitled. If this reorganization of a legislative ticket can l > 3 effected In the CJago-Sallno district there Is no good reason why similar re- orgiud/atloit should not take place In the Douglas county legislative ticket , which Is weighted down with two or three men who cannot possibly com mand the conlldonce or the voL's of the party necessary to election. Popocratlc papers now my the repub lican administration , having failed to force Hrynn's resignation , Is tr.Uiig to kill him off by keeping him in tiic swamps of Florida. This "errlble arcu sation could be equaled only by the charge that the republicans lured Hryan Into enlisting with the very ob ject of piling him Into his pivM-nt di lemma.

As : i mat ter of fact , Colonel Hryun IUIM not ben subjected to the ordenJ of camping In a Klorida | swamp nnd ntf the worst he Is no better than any other member of his regiment. According to one of the recognized populist organs , "If permanent pros- periiy Is to prevail the power of capital must be curtalL-d' by the free coinage of silver nnd a larger Issuance of green backs. " Hitherto we have been told that currency Inflation would not Im pair the power of capital , but would rather stimulate productive Industry. In 'ihls ' restatement of the popocmtic position I the demand for free sliver , how- ever , Is surplusage , as the curtailing I' process ' can bo done so much more readily ' and Inexpensively by the coin age of pure papejr , fiat Governor Holurinih pretends to bo i hesitating ns t'o "rt'hlch ' of the two rcgl- ' j j incuts ho Is to'rocjmimend for mustering ! out.

Dr. SchatJ5'a ? ot tne Ilew school of college presidents as distinguished from the old school , whttee'rypo was the clergyman. For ho came to Jjl. duUes as head of a great Institution through the avenue of physical science , a path almost unknown a few gen- eratlons ago. AsTurTn and acting president ot Cornell university. Dr. Schafer was well , known to cducnlforfal circles of this coun try , but his grcMrSvork was dona In Iowa City. Ho carao'llo'Jthls rising Institution at a critical period of its history and Us rapid growth alnco his advent has shown the value of his services. Ho did little instructing In Iowa , but what ho did was well done. The medical department students were not sat isfied with the course of lectures delivered to them by the professor of chemistry whoso duties were chiefly with the collcglato de partment , claiming It was not BUfllclantly practical. So President Schafer quietly took up the work and delivered a course of lec tures with which the medical students were ! delighted. Dr. Schafer was a sturdy and ' | enthusiastic churchman and was elected a delegate to the general conventions of 1S93 and 1898 , being a member of the standing committee of the diocese. He was personally very popular with tab students and people , and his untimely death Is a source of deep sorrow to all Interested in the institution's progresa. ' STATH l'lir..SS I'OMTirAti COMMKXT. Hebron Republican : The great , warm , sympathetic popocratlc- heart mint suffer much , and It would In no time bleed to death < for the suffering people , the sick sol dier and the Nebraska school children If the fre.'h blood supply from the 'public olllcea were ouco cut off. Wood Itlvcr Interests ( rep. ) : There Is trouble In the itopullst camp at the Holdletn' Homo at Grand Island. It Is said the popu list state committee proposed to assess the employee 3 per cent of their salaries for campaign purposes which proposition met with a vigorous kick. Alliance Times ( rep. ) : Of alt the rank Jobs put up on the general government Is that ot the Nebraska populists sending out state campaign llteiature under the frank of Sen ator W. V. Allen. It Is estimated this swin dle will cost the postolllco department $3,000. If each party In .all the states were low down enough to do likewise the cost to the government would be over $230,000. North Platte Tribune ( rep. ) : Kroin all points In western Nebraska visited by Can didate Pdynter nnd Regent Von Karrell come re-ports that the meetings held by them have been dismal failures. The people of of western Nebraska , or nt least a larco majority of them , are ready to drop popu lism nnd again pin their faith to republican principles and republican management of state nnd national affairs. Holdti'Ku Citizen ( rep. ) : The more the matter Is Investigated the more does it become apparent that many of the populist olllclnls arc real savers wh n It comes lo saving their own pocketbooks and making the slate foot the bill. The amount of trav eling expense a populist ofllclal who has his pocket full of passes can charge In n few nonthsould L-J surprising If made by any one but 11 professional reformer. Norlh Pintle Tribune ( rep. ) : It has recently como to light that the present populist state liouso gang at Lincoln has been supplying butterino made at Kansas City to the In mates of the feeble-minded and deaf and .lumb institutes. Of course Nebraska but- : er Is too good for the unfortunates In these Institutions ; they should feel thankful that under uouullst control they are not com. polled to eat rye bread and axle grease. Grand fiinnd Republican : Wo nro relia bly Informed that the employes of the Sol diers' and Sailors' Home have been noti fied of an assessment of 3 per cent of their quarter's salary for the popullstlc campaign fund. It is presumed that the employes of all other stale Institutions arc to ho held up In like manner , under pain of Immediate discharge. Here Is rollicking reform for you with a vengeance. In God's name , what does reform mean , anyway ? Ueatrlce Express ( rep. ) : George Aithur Murphy , republican candidate for lieutenant governor , Is a brainy and aggressive young man who will make friends for the ticket. Ho is fortunate In politics. Ho has a'wnys surprised Gage county by his running abil ities. When ho was a cnnJIda'e for county at'orney the wiseacres predicted that he bo snowed under , hut he came up a winner. When ' e was a can didate for the legislature the wiseacres . 'aid that ln had not a ghost of a chance , but he emit * up smilingly ngiin , a winner. The same old wiseacres ate now saying that defer l Is written atn'nst his name this y3.ir , but It Isn't. He will win nsnln. with tU2 l-n.niice of the rsputjlljn candidates. York Times ( rep. ) : Anybody who mistakes Porter for an honest man either knows very little of him or has very poor judgment. It was not honest for him to howl against railroad passes all his life and then as soon as he got ) a position where ho could obtain pnsres to gather himself up nnd make a trip to Klorida while the legislature was In ses- sesslon. Ho was like a boy with a new suit of etothes ; ho could not wait a minute after lip found that he could get passes. There is hardly an hour during the sessions of the Icyislaturo when the secretary of state Is not needed , and no tnair In that olHce was ever before known to absent himself from the capital during a legislative session. IJut Porter could not wait. Ho had the passes and they burned In his pocket. Hlair Pilot ( rep. ) : The otato dairymen arc taking nn actlvo hold of the burterlno deal whereby the state Institutions have been furnished butterlnc or oleomargarine In- gPearl of butter. Not only has the butterino law of ' 3 , ' ) been violated , but the dairy In- I'eresls of the state have been made to suf fer directly Had the > state house ofllclala follonexl the plain letter of the law over $10.000 of good money would have found Its , \ay Into the pockets of the farmers and dairymen of the state The alleged "friends of the farmer" prove to bo ogly a blind to catch votra and the Ingratitude of the state house onicials In thus refusing to give the bcnoflt ot the Btato trade to the butter makers of the state should not bo passed by unnoticed. Economy that Is carried on in t1it dhect violation of the low and against the Interests of the dairymen of the state Is far fetched Hastings Record ( rep. ) : With the same assurances of cerminty that history repeats Itself , wo may rely upon the man who once lepudlates his obligations and betrays his party to do so again. In the ) state campaign ot 1890 there were two prominent issues. One was the reduction of freight rates and the other was the reduction of stock yard charges. The populist legislature was elected upon these tv.o issues. A maximum freight rate was passed , but It was so manifestly unfair and unreasonable that the supreme court of the United Stales Bald It was in operative. Jittrlnu the same session of the legislature thu rouor house passed a bill repalatlng the charges to bo made by the Union Stock Yards company nt South Omaha. This bill was sent to the senate and the committee ? having It In charge re ported It to the senate with a recommenda tion that It bo passed. On the day this re port was made Senator Poynter moved that a titling commlitco bo appointed to select from the great mass of bills there before that body such hills as were of Importance to the whole state and give them the right of way over other bills of less Importance. Mr Poynter was made chairman of that committee. The stock yards bill was placed in the hands ot the sifting committee and , although I IK friends frequently asked that it bo plaecd upon the general file. It was ncvor heard of after going Into Mr. Poyn- ter's hands. Now , let us ask what confi dence can the populists place In a man who has once betrayed them ? Once n traitor , always a traitor.

Ho Is growing In popularity and strength In Klllmore county uvery day and men of all political opinions acknowledge him to bo a strong candidate. llcatrlco Express trrp. ) : E. II. Hlnshaw , republican candidate for congress Is the sort of a man to nominate for an olllco. Ho did not waste time or effort seeking the nomination , but ouco chosen as a candidate , ho regards U as a matter of business and a matter of honor to win. Ho Is allowing no grass to grow under his feet , but Is seeing the voters throughout the district and mak ing an excellent Itnprceslon upon them wherever he goes. York Times ( rep. ) : Our candidate for congress Is a clean , nblo and honest man. When he Is elected you may bo sure ho will not practice any of the cheap tricks of the dcmaroguo to make the people think he Is soim-thing that ho Is not. Ho will bo able lo assist the soldiers much more than a populist can. because he will bo In touch with the administration and the heads of the departments. Mr. Hlnsbaw Is liked most where he Is best known , which Is pretty conclusive evidence that he Is nn hon est ami good man. McCook Tribune ( rop. ) : Captain Clalro Adams , the republican nominee for congress In this district , it will bo observed by all republicans with pleasure , is making a winning campaign over the district wherever ho has been. The captain Is a thorough gentleman , able , yet retiring and modest ; successful , yet not boastful ; republican to the core , yet fair and respectful ; Indeed physically , mentally nnd morally the cap tain Is royally equipped to make this dis trict just such a congressman as the dis trict deserves to have. An old soldier , an upright citizen , n successful business man , a loyal Nebraskan and a clean republican ; the captain Is entitled to the votes of the people of this district. Ord Quiz ( rep. ) : Over In the Third district they are making It hot for Robinson , the fusion candidate for congress. It turns out that Lawyer Robinson Is ono of a combina tion of lawyers who have a contract with the Santee Indians to collect a large sum of money from the government for the Indians , the lawyers to get 10 per cent of the amount realized. Robinson's law partner. Senator Allen , has had the senate committee ready to report favorably for some time , but the stick has been all along to get favorable action from the house. With Robinson In the house there will be a good show for this thing to bo run through In a hurry. As the Indians expect to have $1,000,000 ap propriated for their beneflt It Is easy to BOO that the share coming to the lawyers would bo $100,000 , which added to the small sum of $5,000 a year salary would make a very nice thing to work for. The Allen gang did not turn down Maxwell without an eye to something good. Kearrey Sun ( rep. ) : Congressman Greene and his friends complain bitterly bccaiue Norrls Urown refers to Mr. Greene's record In congress. The record of every public olllclal Is public property , and if Mr. Greene has been a faithful representative of the people he ought to be glad to have his rrc- crd discussed. Ho draws a big salary as a representative of the district , and the people ple have a right to know where ho was when Important measures were before con gress. The Dlngley law Is one of the most Important measures considered by congress during the last deoado ; the Cuban question was of great concern to every man nnd woman In the United States , i-arrylng with It the dread problem of International war. The people had a right to expect that their representative In congress would at least vote on these Important measures , and ho must give a sntlsfaclory reason for fallIng - Ing to do so or ho forfeits the right to expect the support of the people ho baa failed to represent. Mlndcn Gazette ( rep. ) : If the populist candidate In this district Is running for congress gross upon a platform of any kind It Is tlmo we know what it Is. Mr. Sutherland In a very pleasant conversation with the writer volunteered the Information that In his speech of acceptance of the nomination at Holdrego he "did not refer to 1C to 1 , did not criticize the war , did not talk of ex pansion , and did not mention McKlnley's name ; " and further only referred to the administration once. It Is understood that resolutions were passed endorsing the na tional and state platforms , also something complimentary to Mr. Sutherland , but fur ther than that , nothing. They never were published anil in the absence of further In formation It Is fair to assume that he Is running on the national platform regardless of tha new Issues which have arisen since Its adoption , and the state platform and folder , which cays : "Tho chief Issue In this campaign Is gooJ state government. " Ho will have to discuss 1C to 1 which he , vol untarily , said was dead so far as this cam paign Is concerned. Ignore the questions with which consro's will have to deal In connection with the war with Spain , and explain why flic populist administration in the state spent so much more public money than did the republican administration be fore It. Mr. Sutherland has a contract on his bands that will worry him. OMAHA'S HIK1IT TO IIO.MIJ HUM Schuylcr Quill ( pop. ) : The law giving the governor the right to appoint the Iloan' of Flro and Police Commissioners In Iho clly of Omaha has been declared unconsti tutional , and the officers appointed under the law ousted. This la as It should be Every city should be privileged to manage Its own affairs , and especially In Iho selec tion of Its officers. Hastings Record ( rep. ) : The supreme court has handed down an opinion whlul relieves Omaha of her outlawed police bean and renders a signal triumph for homo rule A motion for rehearing was overruled Instead of the fire and police departments of Omaha being an Issue In slate politics It now reverts lo the municipality , where It rightfully belongs , and the mailer of ap polnlmeiH rests with the city council. Tekamoh Herald ( rep. ) : The Holcomb bo gus flro and police commission had to go This was one of the governor's small tricks The law requlrcrj the appointment of a non partisan hoard , but he Ignored the plain letter and spirit of the law and made hi appointments from the same gang , calling ono a silver republican , another a populist etc. Might just as well have taken so many kittens from one Utter and call them differ ent breeds on account of their color. Pmdcr Republican ( rep. ) : The suprem court has handed down a decision in th flro and police board case from Omaha ousting the Iiee Hcrdman board from con trol of police affairs , and Installing th board appointed by the city council. Thl decision will forever take their hands ol the control of municipal affairs In any o Nebraska's cities , and Is In line of rlshl sustaining the right of each city to manag Us municipal affairs without Interfertiic from the governor , who has usually used bis power to further the desires of his political henchmen and generally to the detriment of the city.
