Omaha will soon be a highly moral
city. The mayor says the saloon-keepers
must pay a fulljyear's license in advance,
unci that the gambling houses must all
close at once, while the ministers of the
city are preaching a crusade against Sun
day base bull. One remarkable result
showing the improved moral tone of the
city is already discernable. The people
and press have discovered the drinking
water is muddy.
Council Bluffs had a big time the
Fourth. They had the races, and then
they had the news that the Secretary of
"War had signed the permit giying the
Omaha and Council Bluffs Bridge Co.
the right to build a wagon bridge across
the Missouri. The enthusiasm of the
people passed all ordinary bounds and
they went in for a big time and had it.
They burned more fireworks and made

Tub Burlington Hawkeye of June 27,
contains a "part 2" devoted to showing
up the advantages of the "Western Nor
mal college of Shenandoah. Extracts
are taken from papers all over the state
of Iowa and they uniformly speak in
highest commendation of the college and
its surroundings. The institution is one
of the best of its class in the west and is
certainly worthy the praise which the ex
tracts alluded to show are so bountifully
The Railway Age gives Statistics
showing that in the first six months
of this year track-laying has been
going on in 37 of the 47 states and terri
tories of the union. Track has been laid
on 230 different lines of railroad aggre
gating 3.754 miles. It is a remarkably
healthy showing and has only been sur
passed in the number of miles laid, once,
in 1882, when almost 5,000 were laid
during the same period. The state show
ing best is Kansas with G92 miles of track
laid on 17 different lines of road, fol
lowed by Texas with 4S9 miles, the In
diatn territory with 433 miles, and Nebras
ka fourth with 331 miles laid by five dif
ferent lines of railroad.
That grand old traitor Jeff Davis has
emphasized hi3 denial of the letter ac
credited to him saying the flags should
not be returned by writing one to the
Baltimore Sun in which he plainly says
they should be. He says to retain them
would be equivalent to renewed exulta
tion and then adds: "Our men fought
for a principle, and that they haye not
surrendered, but rather hopelessly lived
to see the good sense of northern men re
vert to the teachings of their sires, and
reestablish the government according to
the constitution on which it was founded.
That is the only victory which would bj
to them and their children, a thing to be
prized and glorified." There is only one
exclamation in current use in America
that is appropriate for the occasion. It is,
Keep up the Improvements
We do not know how much truth there
is in the rumors that are afloat of new
enterprises coming to locate in this city.
But it is certain it is to the interest of the
city and every resident in it that every
such enterprise be made to feel it will
find a cordial welcome amongst us if it
"will but ccme here. Our many advan
tages of location and surroundings should
be shown in their proper light to all visi
tors. And above all we should show
our own confidence in our city's future
by going steadily ahead with the improve
ments in hand and proposed. The es
tablishing of so excellent a system of wa
ter works was a good beginning, we
count as certain the carrying of the sewer
amd paving bonds, and with these im
provements completed tthere is hardly a
city of our siza in the west that can offer
equal advantages to the manufacturer or
business man seeking a location in which
to establish himself. We do not need to
"boom" the city but to show up what we
have and what our surroundings are;
then there will come such an impetus of
new life and growth, and general pros
perity, that it will surprise the most san
guin of us. Let our citizens continue
the works of improvement.
The telegraphic dispatches inform U3
that hardly ever in the history of the
country has our great national holiday
been so generally observed as on last
Monday. This is as it should be. As
our country grows in wealth and power,
remaining in a state of prosperous peace,
we do well to joyfully celebrate the an
niversary of the day on which our an
cestors courageously declared their inde
pendence and set about the perfection
and maintenance of an independent
government founded on the great princi
ples of equality of mankind and free
government. From the first the country
grew and prospered, but never, in its
previous history, has it been so marked
as since the one great stain of slavery
that belied our declarations and our
teachings has been blotted out.
It is probably not an exaggeration to
say that in every country where civilized
man lives, the day has been observed by
greater or less numbers of our citizens
who are abroad. Among those of them
who have gone to live abroad for years
at a time there is no day in the year they
look forward to with as much pleasure,
and for which they plan such general
observance as do they for this of their
country's independence. There is that
about the associations of the day that
takes them back to their old homes " in
the States," and which renews in them
that love and pride of country which has
come to be so characteristic to Americans.
This universal observance of the day
shows how great must be the benefits
that have come to us through the act
which it commemorates, and is but a fit
ting tribute to the wisdom of those who
framed it, and to the courage of those
who upheld it. May the custom of its
observance never become obsolete, but
rather let it grow till all the world shall
justly acknowledge it the greatest of

Mr. Cykus W. Field, of the New
York Mail and Express, has done a great
deal to elevate the editorial profession
by losing $4,000,000 on the New York
Stock Exchange. There are very few
professions with members who could sus
tain such a loss. The editors of Texas,
when tliay lose a few thousand at poker,
should think of Brother Field, and suck
the milk of satisfaction from the facts in
his case. Qlobe Dem.
Iowa has 99 counties and nearly that
many county jails. Of the whole num
ber of jails 55 are totally empty and crim
inal court expenses, both in town and
county courts, have been greatly reduced
within the past year. This is o ving al
together to the Clark liquor law. If Ne
braska prohibitionists want to do some
thing that is something they had better
make a square and straight fight to en
graft that identical statute on Nebraska.

The Democrat, the editor of this reliable
paper is forced tothe belief that most of the

Horace Greeley's advice and moved west.

there are few western editors who would
not feel like giving due credit in self-defense.
A well in Yukutsk, in Siberia, has
been a standing puzzle to scientists for
many years. It was begun in 1828, but
given up at thirty feet because it was
still in frozen earth. Then the Russian
accademy of sciences continued for some
months the work of deepening the well,
but stopped when it reached to the depth
ot some 382 feet, when the ground wts
still frozen as hard as a rock. In 1884
the accademy had the temperature of the
excayation carefully taken at various
depths and from the data thus obtained
the ground was estimated to be frozen
to a depth of 612 feet. As an external
cold could cot freeze the earth to such a
depth even in Siberia, geologists have
concluded that the well has penetrated a
frozen formation of the glacial period
which has never thawed out. Ex.
The Arthur Monument.
Funds are being raised in a quiet man
ner for a statute of the late President Ar
thur, to be erected iu Madison square,
this city. It is proposed to spend about
$30,000 on the monument. More than
half of this money has already been col
lected by a committee, of which Cornel
ius N. Bliss is chairman. The remainder
will be raised, it is expected, within a
month. In this city, where his worth
was known and appreciated long before
lie went to Washington, the subscriptions
have naturally been most freely made.
In fact, the project for a monument in
this city arose from the fact that several
thousand more than was necessary was
subscribed for a monument in the Albany
cemetary, where he is hurried. The sur
plus was then made the nucleus for a fund
for a monument in this city, and it will
not be may days before the entire amount
is subscribed. New York Correspondent
