The Canadian Pacific railroad must
at last be credited with i rospects.
The division between ThuiiJer Hay, on
the northwest shore of Lake Superior,
and Winnipeg, is nearlj' or quit ready

miles toward the iiociy uio'r.-.ains.

Whatever may be the decree of stag
nation in railroad building in other
states, Iowa will not fill behind the
record of previous years in ls.-sj. The
projections hitherto mentioned in the
Lumberman, are likely to niaeriv.lizG
into positive construction. The do,
0kalooa & Western ro.-.-J. an enter
prise leiii pushed by ox-tiov. Merrill,
and the Diagonal " line from Mc
Gregor to Nebraska City and Council
Blurts, -will be pushed neek-aiid-neck
this sea.-on, for the purpose of beating
each other in the race to Council Diutfs.
It has been rumored lately that forces
will be withdrawn from other portions
of the Diagonal road, now under con
struction, and be put on between YVin
terset and Council Bluffs so as to have
that portion of the road completed be
fore Gov. -Merrill gets his enterprise
under way. Tli'j Toledo, Oskuloosa .v
"Western iu Iowa, goinj e.nf ward, will
pass through the counties of Pottawat
tamie, Cass, Ad or, Madison, Varren,
Marion to Oskuloosa, iu Mahaska coun
ty, where it will connect vi;!i the I'url
inglou fc Pacific, now owned by the
Central Iowa, and beinrr built to Keiths
burg, III., thence-to Peoria and Toledo.
It will be a short route lo Hit- seaboard,
passing Chicago to the southward
through Kankakee county; but it will
have track arrangements with Chicago,
over the Chicago, Alton & .St. Louis
road. The Diagonal road will cross
the Toledo, Wabash & Western at Wiu
terset, Madison county, Iowa, from
which point, as Ins been said, the
Diagonal will shoot a branch to Coun
cil BlufTs, parallel with its rival, and a
hot race will be made by the two com
panies tsec which f-hall reavi Council
Bluffs first. Besides these two import
ant enterprises, the projectors of the
Des Moines, O.,kalooi ifc Southern
road are stirriug about extending it
frm Decatur south westward to a con
nection with the Southern Pacific sys
tem, probably at St. Joe, Mo. The
Council BlulFs Ac Northern project is re
ported as having come to stay. The
route will be located at once from
Council BlufTs to Crescent City. Bth

ject in simply building this road o the
Missouri river, and there stopping; it
is an aggressive line of road; it is not
only coming to Nebraska, but it is pro
posing to enter our state and compete
for Nebrasl and Kansas traJe. It is
undoubtedly backed by strong capital,
and is annother and distinct avenus to
the mart of the lakes, which this coun
try cannot afTort to neglect.

IS THERE NO REMEDY.
The daily record of crime as it ap
apears each morning in the columns of
the press of the country is sufficient
to prompt the inquiry, is there no rem
edy ? 1 1 is a question f rejeuntly asked,
but the magnitude of the evil is so
great that it overshadows any attempt
to formulate an answer, and the sub
ject is usually dropped almost as quick
ly as it is introduced. It is thought
by many the world is actually growing
worse, but is extremely doubtful. One
fact, however, is apparent, and that is
our knowledge of crime is continually
widening. This is owing to the in
crease in the facilities for collecting
news. In these days of the telegraph
and the ready power press, every con
siderable violation of the law is Hashed
over the wires iu the twinkling of an
eye, and when grouped together they
aggregate and totalize the crimes of
lifty millions of people for one day in
a single imprint. Thus they shock the
moral sense and become alarmingly
enormous. But as the St. doe Herald
says in discussing this sain 3 subject, if
criinrt is really increasing we cannot
fairly account for it by contrai-ting the
population of today with that of a
few years ago. Some allowance must
be made for the rapid increase of great
cities. The per centage of crimes runs
pre',ty nearly equal with the growth of
the population, and that is derived
from so many malcontents who drift
thereto, that our largo cities may be
considered resorts, to which come all
who are discontented and evil-minded.
But making all such discounts, there j
i.s more than enough of the criminal
class, those whose works are evil and
that continually, who don't feel what
a struggle it is to subdue their passions
and resist temptation. Probably there
are few men, however, just in life,
who have not felt the criminal impulse
under one or the other provocation.
Iu business circles this temptation
comes more frequently and easily.
The holding of trust moneys is a sore
temptation. These financial ciimos
are, however, a weak element in the
human character. It is inbied in all
to make the best of a good bargain
and make the best hope of an enticing
There are two classes who find the
prison and the gallows. The fust is
the uneducated criminal class, who
place a too large construction on the
phrase " land of liberty," and are con
stantly and by a law of nature incapa
ble of knowing that self restiaint is
the surest way to comfort in life.
From these and from the drink which
they use alike as an incentive and an
excuse for crime, and which seems to
be a necessity to their immoral natures,
they derive a tendency to crime. An
other class is the young men who
make haste to get rich ; who gamble in
stocks ; and for some reason find it con
venient to carry revolvers into peace
ful houses on peaceful streets. With
them, sensual passion is always the
provocative. And still another class
of murders rank with the suicides.
They live in unhappy soli aide, perhaps
inconstant quarrel at home, or else a
neighborhood quarrel gives a gloom to
all their life. The world narrows
down upon them until it crushes them
together and some one is killed. It
would be a study for a wi3e man to de
velop a full theory of the homicidal
and suicidal impulses, the classes of
society they most affect, the religious
or irreligious, which furnish the most
victims, and then the idiosyncracies
which some men endure. The tenden
cy to crime has received a fresh impe
tus during the past few months, and
the world seems full of it. It meets
ti3 on every hand. Is there no remedy ?

THERE 13 A CALM.
From the Big Pedca to the Kennebec
there is a calm both with the press and
savans of the Iroquois persuasion
Mayor Carter Harrison is the man who
put on the brakes. Now, at this hour
it has been discovered that doubtful
things are very uncertain; that things
are not what they seem to be. Thur
man says that Mayor Carter Harrison
should receive attention. "Whether he
should receive this for his ideas as an
Iroquois chief or a3 a chief of sluggers,
or of a mayor, ho states not, and the
world may never know. Fven that
light which throws darkness on the
subject of free trade in this country
has crawled into his shell and spe'ak
eth free trade no more. And now
what? Darkness enshrouds the fu
ture. Shall all those shrieks which
in the past have enkindled the flames
of light which gave the flickering rays
which induced the hope for the future
of the Iroquois be hushed? The cry
now comes from the Ilio Grande to St.
John's, "Watchman, what of the
Tun IIeiiald congratulates the dis
trict court and especially the grand jury
upon their action in regard to the bawdy
houses in this city. The law and order,
home loving and home protecting citi
zens of this city.and there are very'many,
rejoice in the action taken to suppress
crime, disorder and the ruin to society
and homes that they iuflict upon any
community. The indictments haye
been followed with a vigorous prosecu
tion at the hands of District Attorney
Strode and the verdict rendered i one
giving much satisfaction to every one
deserving the name of citizen iu the con
fines of the city of Plattsmouth.

railroad company in their effort to revi
vify a dominant land grant now worth
millions of dollars, and settled up by
inlustiioiis farmers who have long
since supposed they had an indefeasi
ble title to the lands. The principal
oLj- ct of the sfnator seems to be the
calling the attention of the country to
the facts in the premises, so that the
purchasers of bonds based on this
grant to which they have no title can
not come in and claim to be innocent
purchasers, and avail themselves of
the advantages accrueing therefrom.
