A Xkw Oklkaxs raiid jry h.ls
made a report, iu which it says that
Kaniblintf cannot be suppressed
and recommends liitfli license as a
means decontrolling and limiting
the evil. The Miggention is made
to the legislature that a uniform
license of .fU(H) per month be as
sessed upon each gambling house
in New Orleans, the license fees to
be turned over to the charity hospi
tal. As the gamblers are not likely
to do much for charity voluntarily,
und as they are pretty mire to go
right on pursuing their calling in
New Orleans, perhaps, some good
would come of such a law. Two
hundred dollars a month from each
gambling house would give charity
a great boom. Omaha llec.
ORIGIN OF OUH ELAG.
As our existence as a nation had
its origin in the IvnglL-h colonies,
co our national vnsign had for its
basis the ilag of Ivngland. the moth,
er country from whom the colonies
revolted. Thc'yoia- was (-liakcn oif;
but the impress remains on our
character; ine Hag was repudiated,
but the colors were retained.
The Knglih il.ig was the one in
use iu the Anylo Saxon settlements
in America from the time of the nr.
rival of the Mayflower until January,
177(i. It was a red Ilag with a blue
canton, or coner, upon which was
the cross of St. George, the patron
saint of England, and afterwards
the united crosses of St. George and
St. Andrew, the patron saint of Scot
laud. During the storing times just
preciMtmg the Revolution, the style
of the American flag was as chaotic
as were the albiirs of the country.
Some dozen or more different ones
were carried on different occasions
jCuch indicating, in some way or
another, the state of mind of the
people But ill the latter purl of
177" it w.i- .J, enied n try to -'-t-

A BRITISH OPINION OF LORD
In turning to the coinmerciel re
ipiirements of the country Lord Sal
isbury grappled frankly with the
difficulties caused to Hriltish enter
prise by the persistent rejection ol
free trade doctrines among all the
other nations. That he would in
stantly be accused of protectionist
views was, he almost comically ad
milted, a matter of course. Ncvcr
the less, the perfectly inelastic rules
of the Cobdenite school have no
special claim to be regarded as in
defeasible, and It is obviously the
duly of political leaders to estimate
the tendencies of the amount with
out consenting to stop at a particu
lar point of economical develop
incut. England is essentially a
trading island, contending unarm
ed in a general war of tariffs, nor is
the correctness of this observation
at all vitiated by the conclusions
which different men may build up
on in. Lord Salisbury advocates
the common sense view that retali
ation is becoming a necessity in the
case of imported luxuries, but that
it cannot be tried in that of food
and raw material. This statement
of course, will create great commo
tion iu radical circles, but it is the
first authoritative recognition of the
view always maintained in these
columns that the free trade dispute
is essentially a working man's (pies
tion, and will have to be settled iu
harmony with the workman's .re
(Uiretuents. - The London Morning
l'ost, May lit,
TilK New York Herald gleefully
remarks: "When the republicans
are divided by factional hostility,
as they are to-day, there is greater
need of harmony among the demo
crats. If Harrison and Maine see
lit to split one party, there is no
reason why Cleveland and Hill
should split the other." Hut just
wait and see how much "division"
there is among republicans. The
Herald advises the "dropping of
both Hill and Cleveland and a
union upon some western man.'
That might be sensible. The west
is the place to find winning candi
dates. The star of empire is in the
west, atid no mistake. We not only
raise the corn and the wheat and
hogs and cattle upon a thousand
hills, but we raise the men. Come
west for a candidate the woods are
full of them. Inter Ocean.
A Gkki:k professor iu England
has invented nn ice locomotive,
which he expects will carry him to
the north pole. It is to have a
unique arrangement by which it
lays and takes up rails as it runs
The locomotive will be operated bv
steam, and the exhaust will furnish
warmth for the travelers. Attached
to the engine will be u cab which
will carry provisions for the explor
ing party. I'rofessor Damaskin,
the inventor, says that he will start
from Spitzenbergen and run for the
north pole at the rate of thirty milt s
an hour, expecting to reach his des
tination in twenty hours, or making
the observation and the round trip
in two davs. 1 his wildlv iniprtictic-
able scheme is worthy of a Greek
professor. Strange he docs not take
into account "grades." and omits
I "the accounts" that will proceed
from the party when they strike
slush ice, etc.
WIRE PILLOWS AND CUSHIONS.
Recently I had brought under my
notice, says a vvritter in the London
Illustrated .News, a new invention,
which I think should be made wide
ly known in view of the sanitary
benefits likely to accrue from its use.
I refer to the braided wire pillows,
mattresses, and like articles which.
I understand, are being introduced
into this country by an American
linn. The pillows I saw and exam
ined are made of braided wire; they
are perfectly resilient, accomodate
themselves to every movement, and
are of cotire, always cool. The
chief point to vhieh puMje a,'en

THE BUSINESS OUTLOOK.
Perhaps the most important fact
to be presented to the public in a
ictrospcctivc glance for the week
is the subsidence of the alarm re
garding the crops. Statistics
gathered by the department of
agriculture indicate that the yield
of w heat will be nearly equal to (hat
of last year. Tl e average of corn
planted is about the same as last
year and the warm weather tin
past week has brought it out till it
is nearly as far advanced as it was
this time last year.
The volume of trade is estimated
at 7 per cent increase over the same
period of last year, and the clear
ings show a gain of ln.ii per cent.
Iron has been iu better demand at
Philadelphia and Pittsburg, al
though some southern product was
pressed upon the market at very
low rates. All the eastern jobbers
find dry goods active, and there are
large orders and shipments in
boots and shoes. Cotton scored tin
advance of a fraction. Silver bul
lion has been quietly crawling up
ON THE FIRST BALLCT.
After three days of preliminary
work the republican national con
vention yesterday nominated Presi
ilent Harrison for a second term on
the first ballot.
Tltli JIiikAI.1) believes the party
will go into the contest with noth
ing to apologize for either in candi
dates or platform. The recoid of
the president is absolutely unas
sailable. He has given the best ad
ministration we have had since the
Wiir, and as brilliant none as any
other country has ever enjoyed iu
times of piece. His conduct of the
office has commended him to the
best elements of all parties, and es-
peci illy those who agree with him
on economic questions. His second
candidacy will produce a more en
thusiastic campaign than his first,
iml the president will grow iu pop
ularity and strength with the pen
pie until the election returns him
triumphantly to the white house
fcr another term of four years.
Wti conunend the able, patriotic
and thoroughly American adminis
tration of President Harrison. I'n-
der it the country has enjoyed re
markable prosperity, and thediirni-
ty and honor of the nation, at home
and abroad, have been faithfully
maintained, and we offer the record
of pledges kept as a truarantee of
of the faithful performance in the
future. Republican platform.
