PLATTSMOUTH, MAItCII 17, 1b.1.
Says the Chicago Times: Once a
year, anl btill more every micowI year,
there is preocutcd fur solntiou iu the city
oi Chicago ouc of the most difficult
problems of any age. It is the problem
of making a satisfactory distribution of
the municipal offices among tlie different
nations of the earth.
How about Piattsmouth city? We
bavo heard it hinted that there was no
fcilch trouble oae year ago in this city.
Dx-Gov. Wm. ISpkague. of Rhode
Island, has been nominated by the In
dependent party of that State for
Governor. Governor Sprague, at one
time, owing to the aristocratic wealth
of the .Sprague family, had some na
tional reputation; but so far as his
ever having any brains or manhood,
the country ban never been informed,
lie won the hand of the beautiful and
elegaut Kate Cutue, Salmon Chafe's
brilliant daughter while a member
of the United Slates Senate from
Ilhode Island; he married her he
failed financially he drank heavily
he quarreled with his wife he made
the qaarrel as public and notorious as
he posib!j could he has never been
vindicated, s far as we know, even
by his b.?st. friends, from the charge of
outrageoii-t abuse toward his wife
and familyhe Ir.is recently ninrricd
again, and we suppose the indepen
dent party of Rhode Island, has taken
tho contract of vindicating him, by
making Lira chief executive of Little
lihody. Wo think any party ought to
be fearfully and wonderfully inde
pendent, that will take up a man like
Ex-governor Spruuge, of Rhode Island
as its standard bearer.
Watkuwokks are a positive neces
sity for a city of any pretentions.
I'lattsmoulh can now establish thin
enterprise upon her business street, to
bo extended to tho residence portion of
the city as it is demanded. We have
no adequate apparatus to guard against
the destruction of property by tire. If
we had two or three fire companies or
ganized with hooks, ladders, steam en
gines, etc., we have not got the water
upon Main street, cisterns and wells
have to be supplied, when these are
supplied the necessity of at least two
good engines with all their apparatus
will be required, and all this will cost
quite a sum of money. Then why not
take the matter in hand and provide
now for water works, it wont cost the
city anything to ask gentlemen engag
ed in the construction of waterworks
to exiruine our city and give us an es
timate. Men of capital now stand
ready to say what they will undertake
to put in a reservoir on high school
bill and lay pipes upon Main street
for. The Heuald urges this water
works enterprise on the ground; first,
that it Is a necessity for the protection
of the business portion of our city;
second, that it is simply a matter of
economy for Piattsmouth city to now
establish the enterprise. When our
city attains a much greater growth, as
it certainly will in a short time, it
doubtless will be much more difficult
to get the consent of the people and
authorities to put in limited works at
eomiuaiiJiug the party l WI a re
'gainst protection; whilo the action
of its representatives in hc congress
which has Jus? adjourned, where the
real" bruin f democracy wan congre
gated, fully demonstrated that such a
course want-imply an impossibility u
a national measure.
residential timber Is Kcurce; the
people, when it comes to placing this
goveramcut in the bauds of thi
party, are naturally suspicious, ko
suvpiciou that no dark home ean
be precipitated successfully into the
White House; the Hancock buslnes
settled this fact. It successful in :hc
next national campaign, the demo
cratic parfy will have to select a well
known mnu as their standard bearer,
in whom the couutry has confidence;
and tho conundrum is, who is No. 1,

Our-dispatches today, announce
Mr. Samuel J. Tildcn to be in excel

as Joe Bagstock would 6ay; but from
the manner in which one IJenj. 1
Butler is bucking tho blue blood leg
islature down in the old Buy State,
one would imagine there is another
democratic war horse on the turf, and
in training,, who is in 'excellent

that resistless tide in the affairs of
great parties as well as of nations

Opponents of the use of spirits and
tobacco in any form, as well ns students
of political fcoumny, vi find food for
argument in the statistics laid down be
fore the senate by the secretary of the
treasury. There are now 25,060,000 gal
lons of distilled spirits in the hands of
dealers in this country, on which $22,
500,000 in taxes has been paid; and over
40,000.000 pounds of tobacco, and about
8,000,000 cigars and oigarctts. There
fore if iu the interests of internal rem
nue reform a bill should be passed re
funding the taxes already paid on this
unsold stock, the government would have
to pay back about $35,000,000. Senators
aud representatives who feel very tender
toward dealers in these wares ought to
' reflect over this item.
drinker, arpues this huoi"iist, is a
gre.it patriot, and has Raved a g:o I maey

"respectable" p -ople.
Most people will, however, agree
with Mr. Gladstone that the diminu
tion of this particular part of the
revenue is a cause for rejoicing. They
believe that a nation of saber men
Would acciiMiulale wealth so much
more rapid ly than a ii;tliu composed
iu part of drunkards, as to be able
eAsily to raise by other forms of tax
ation the revenue now derived frm
the excise.- What will 'interest them
to know is what cause is at the io.it
of this sudden diminution in the on
sumption of beer. A reduction of six
per cent, in the sp;ee of a single year
is a iiomeunu of home note, ami
the c.iu.ic is certainly wmih iuquii ing
into. Several cxplauat ioi.s have been
proposed. The labors of the Salva
tion Army among the lowest classes,
and the influence of various temper
ance organ:, it ions among the upper
classes, are said to have a great effect
iu promoting sobriety. Doubtless
this is true, and a pail of t'ic result is
to be accounted for by the growtn of
teelotalistn. Jut six per cent in a
Biugleyear id too great, a falling off to
be credibly ascribed to this cause.
There .s another curious sta-tis: ical
fact lately made public, that at first
seems to have no connection with this
subject, but really concerns it greatly.
The postal savings I anks, in conse
quence of .Mr. i-'awcetl's system of
penny stamp deposits, during this same
period exhibited an increase of de
posits to the amount of neatly AMO'.i,
000. To our mind the connection be
tween the increase of savings and ti.e
decrease of beer drinking is unmistak
ably close. The working man,
insteed of spending his loose penc for
beer has put them into the bank,
greatly U hi pi- iit and to the detri
ment of rh" brewing trade.

Viky cautiously and timidly, the
managers of the democratic parly are
putting out their feelers on the presi
dential question. The briglit noon

gladly for the party of obstruction,

great portion, of the time, since then,
ben obscured w ih clouds and temp

his heels, pledging the people. ' of the

Ur.CKKASi; OF HE EH IUUXKlJvfi.
In hi last speech as Chancellor of
the Kxchiuer, Mr. Gladstone uttera-J
the following sentence: "The growth
of the revotiue is sensibly retarded by
a caue which .must 111 jiself be re
garded with satisfaction; I refer to
the diminution iu the receipts of the
Exchequer from the duties on intox
icating liquors.". An examination of
the tic 11 res in detail shows th it this
diminution is principiy due to the de
creased consumption of beer, which
paid to the excise about 300,000 less
during tho past year than in the year
previous A writer iu Macmillau'a
Magazine humorously argues that Mr.
Gladstone had no right to look upon
this rtsult with satisfaction, and
dilates on the disasters that would
overtake the nation's tinaace if the
5,000.000 of revenue derive I from
the liquor tax were to bo lost by the
people boccotnjDg sober. The beer-
