SATURDAY. DBCEMBEB 10, 1887..
Congress convened Monday and
both houses immediately organized
without difficulty, there being no

of the house. The organization of
the Senate was witnessed' by Presi

As without this indispensible bever

courts will restrain the mayor.
Tire Gmjrlte.-Journal voices the
sentiment of many of Mr. Blaine's
old friends in Nebraska when it
ars that its oDnosition is based
upon expediency and not upon per
sonal hostility. No where in the
United States is Mr. Blaine held
higher among his political asso
ciates than in Nebraska, and there
is no one whom his admirers would
rather see in the presidential chair,
but they fear that to nominate him
will be taking unnecessary chances.
If he is the choice of the conven
tion however, he can count on
30.000 majority in Nebraska.
Walt Mason, the 'poet of the
Journal, was up to Omaha living
with the incarcerated councilmen.
He apparently didn't appreciate the
the grub furnished by the sheriff,
for on his return he thus discourses
on bills of fare:
"Some day an enterprisiug aud
intellectual hotel proprietor will
edit and publish a bill of fare in
which the queen's English will be
used instead o'f illegitimate French
and imitation Italian. Nothing de
prives a man of his appetite quicker
than to tackle a bill of fare which
he cannot read. When the hotel
keener in ciuestion makes himself
known he will be escorted around
town by a brass band."
The new President or h ranee is
named Sadi-Garnot, a moderate lib
eral republican, but not much
known outside of France. His elec
tion was a hard blow to the mper
ialists and monarchists, who thought
tbpv saw in the political crisis of
ifchp fame a chance to advance their
favorite form of government a step.
The time for the return of the
monarchy or the empire now seems
more remote than ever. In the
United States we have never had
much faith in the stability of the
French Republic. The people or
at least those of Paris, and they say
Paris is France are too impulsive.

is an apparent lack of that solid na

ternal taxes. Mr. Cleveland argues
that' tobacco and liquors are not
necessities, therefore the people
pay this tax of fifty million dollars
cheerfully. We admit that they
are not absolute necessaries of life,
but they are consumed largely by
poor people and the tax does not
lessen the consumption. These taxes
are not popular, and often work,
hardships, especially the-Vtaiion toi

oacco, which is repungent to our in
stitutions. They are relics of war
measures and should long since have
been stricken from the statue book.
There is no necessity for a tax on to
bacco, while municipalities under
state laws can tax liquor all that is
required. Rapeal those laws and
then adjust the tariff if necessary.
One of the results of the
troubles in umcago is tne prepara
tion of a bill which will "be submit-
ted to congress tins session, con
taining provisions for sending out
of the country such aliens as are
dissatisfied with our government
and are continually making trouble.
The 'only difficulty with the bill is
not comprehensive enough for prac
tical .use. With an amendment or
two the object of the bill could be
more' easily attained. To send
foreign, agitators back to. the coun
try from which they came would
not put nn end to the trouble, for
at home they would continue to
talk and act as they do here and the
germs of sedition would naturally
come back to us. A good plan
would be for all the powers to com
bine in the purchase of some island
or uninhabited country and. to set
it apart for the reception of those
dissatished persons to be found in
every country; in other words, to
found a kingdom of anarchy where
the apostles or anarchy and ninii-
ism could have just such a govern
ment or rather no government at
all, as they now advocate. The
czar has a large number of subjects
of whom he would gladly get rid,
Emperor William has a few, Queen
Vic. a tew more, France could add
to the quota and the number lack
ing could easily be furnished from
our own country. With all these
discontented spirits transplanted to
some one designated spot, the dream
of Johann Most would find a most
startling fulfilment anarchy would
reign supreme. New brumea has
been suggested as a fitting place for
the experiment, it already having
an appropriate designation in the
words, No Mans Land. btate
The President's Message.
President Cleveland's message is a
very unique document. It treats of
omly one subject, the tariff, and is a-
free trade argument from beginning
to end. There is not a word about
reducing internal taxes; not a word
.kAnf iho arniv or navy, the settle-
monf nf the fisheries question or of
oar relations with foreign powers.
For information under these heads
congress is refered to the reports of
heads of departments, except that
of Secretary of State, which will in
due time form the subject of
another communication. The mes
sage is plain and outspoken; there
is no diplomacy about the language,
mo beating around the bush that an
uLa mav be inferred rather than
expressed. In this Mr. Cleveland is
perhaps to be commended. Taking
mlthe whqle, however, it has more;

Commander in Chief Rae of the
Gr. A. R. has expressed himself as
heartily in sympathy with the pen
sion bill prepared by that organ iza-
tion, ana predicts mac in win re
ceive the necessary support and be
come a law. This bill, similar in
many respects to the service pen
sion bill vetoed last year by Presi
dent Cleveland, provides, among
other things, for pensioning that
large class of invalid soldiers whose
circumstances are such that they
cannot prove, satisfactorily, that
they are entitled to a pension.
Many cases exist where it is well
known by friends that the disabil
ity of the applicant for pension was
caused by the exposure of army
life, but where the lapse of time
renders it impossible to bring con
clusive proof of the facts in the
case. The death of a single man
whose affidavit on a pension appli
cation has been demanded, has been
known to defeat the issues of the
order to place the applicant's name
upon the pension roll. Changes in
residence have often operated to ac
complish the same undesirable re
sult. In view of these facts, legis
lation is needed to sanction less
rigorous requirements than now
prevail in establishing a claimant's
right to the relief he asks. It is
but a matter of simple justice to the
defenders of the nation in time of
Russia's action in massing troops
on the Austrian and German fron
tiers is regarded with considerable
alarm in Germany The reason for
this action is given by Russia to be
a precaution to guard against sur
prise and attack should Austria-and
Germany niake - common cause
against her. The cause for4his ap
prehension on the part of Russia is
unknown, and the action taken
seems to be exactly opposite in its
nature to that which might have
been expected so soon after the late
satisfactory conference between the
czar aud Bismarck. A solution of
these seemingly unwarranted move
ments may possibly be found in the
situation of France. Whatever the
meaning may be, or what the cause
of the military activity in Russia,
the continental situation had such
an appearance yesterday as to mate
rially effect European markets.
A misunderstanding seems to ex
ist in some quarters regarding the
case or senator Turpie of Indiana,
to the seating of whom some objec
tion was made before the convening
of congress. The contest was not
dismissed by the fact that Mr Tur
pie took the oath of officej but the
republican senators allowed this
course to be pursued -in order to
facilitate onranization. The com
mittee on privileges and elections
now has charge of the matter, will
examine the evidence, the evidence
produced by the contestant and con
testee and report findings to the
senate, which will then decide
whether Mr. Turpie is entitled to
hold his seat.

New York, Dec. 7. The Tri
bune says: The president's mes
sage was a disappointment to Wall
street. It had been supposed it
would treat of other matters than
the tariff, and would make positive
recommendations on several sub
jects. The general opinion seemed
to be that the message was remark
able chiefly by neglect of impor
tant objects outside ot the tariff.
In this respect the free trade utter
ances or the message were not en
tirely offset bv the concluding state
ment, "the question of free trade is
absolutely irrelevant. An active
broker, speaking of the messat
said: "It reminds me of the daily
