The canal which M. De Lesseps pro
poses to cut from the Mediteiranean
sea to the Great Desert of Sahara will
cost $30,000,000, but will redeem over
a hundred million acres of barren land
to agriculture. General Fremont has
a similar scheme for the redemption of
the barren lands of Arizona, by cutting
a canal through from the Gulf of Cali
fornia, or diverting the waters of the
Colorado river upon the plains. It is
said to be practicable, but as the land
will not be needed for years, the

New York and l'ennsylvania by the
votes of the disgruntled and disaffect
ed and so called independent republi
cans, last fall. This Inter-Ocean art i
cle seems to be suggested by the
admissions made by the leaders of the
independent factions (of republicans)
in the states named, that their course
in bolting the regular ticket last fall
was a great mistake. The Inter-
Ocean mentions and quotes from
such men' as Colonel McClure
of the Philadelphia Times, and
Charles E. Smith of the Philadelphia
Press. In a leader of considerable
force, Col. SfcClure giyes forth some
remarkable utterances, which is the
first indication the Herald has had
of just what the independent party in
Pennsylvania wanted or expected last
fall when they voted against the elo
quent one legged soldier. Gen. lieaver,
and in favor of Mr. Pattison for
governor of the great state of Penn
sylvania. We supposed it was done to
punish the Cameron wing of the party
for being a majority of the great re
publican party of that state; but it
appears that thi3 was not the object
of the Pennsylvania independents
when they "sat down on the ma
chine;" Mr. McClure says, speaking of
Governor Pattison being to small fur
the place, hid failure lo do what was
expected of him has convinced the in
dependents that under the circum
stances independence is folly; his
administration has been a great dis
appointment to all who hoped for
It appears then that these independ
ent gentlemen expected to regulate
public affairs in Pennsylvania, by trust
ing to a democratic governor to do the
job. They protosted during that cam
paign that they were republicans, "In
dependent llepublicans (not " young
republicans." like George William Cur
tis, of New York), and that their mis
sion was to purify the republican par
ty. They have tried it, and now these
leading journals who headed this inde
pendent movement are clamoiing for
a re united party. This is the result
always of these movements; there are
individuals in all political parties, and
in all other organizations, for that
matter, who cannot bear the rule of
the majority; hence these independent
movements, and their failures to pro
duce the results the independent voter
hopes for; the true remedy is within
the party, church, or family, when dis
cord prevails. We do not mean to say
the voter should never bolt a candi
date nor eciatch a trcket, when unlit
men are, by force or accident, nomina
ted; but we do mean to say, that in
campaigns, like those in Pennsylvania
or New York, where such men as Gen.
Beaver and Judge Folger were defeat
ed to place in power second rate "mis
fitting menj' men like Pattison and
Cleveland, to obtain reform in the po
litical methods of the party, there can
be no good argument produced to jus
tify such a course, it is a mistake, and
the Herald recognizes the pen con
fession of the leaders of the " Penn
sylvania Independents," as the fore
runner of a united, solid and victo
rious party throughout the union in
overcoat, was surprised to And in a
pocket, overlooked before, the missing
pocket book containing untouched the
:;0,00o roubles, which he really had I
never lost at all. The idea of restor
ing the supposed stohjn money to the
prince from the public funds, in hope
of thus winning favor for zeal and
efficiency, speaks well for the police
oflicer's ingenuity, but presents a curi
ous phase ef Russian official ethics.
Chief Sitting Hull having arrived
at Fort Yates with his band, has ex
pressed his desire to be an honest old
agriculturists, and to raise hia food
out of the ground instead of pursuing
it on hoof. The recent report that he
was about to join the church deiives
probability from the fact that he
taunted a white interviewer with race
responsibility for crucitication. "You
did not even respect your president,
he then added," so that 1 could not
expect you to respect me and my
rights." Jn spite of his bitterness, the
creak Teton chief seems disposed to
live peacefully, conforming to the
ways of white men, in which case his
conduct will be a remarkable illustra
tion of the theory that even an adult

The mission ot Mr. Joseph Pullitzer
in takiDg Mr. Gould's expensive news
paper off of his hands, seems to be to
run the democracy of the Empire State
without the help of the Tilden and
Kelly factions. The name of the
World is indicative of its mission, "The
New World." Mr. Pullitzer will
find it is indeed a " New
World" invention that he will be en
titled to a patent upon,when he succeeds
in running the democratic party of that
state by ignoring the Tammany and
anti-Tammany factions. More than
this. Joseph will Gud there are several
democratic newepapers in that
state besides the ''New World," which
have heretofore had a voice in shaping
the councils of the great party of
democracy in New York. We admire
Mr. Pulhtzer's pluck, but cannot com
mend his discretion.
A case of more than ordinary im
portance is on trial in the district
court this morning. The case of Bal
lon and others vs. John Black and the
M. E. church of Piatt smouth. Ballou
represents a lumber Arm of Omaha
and the object of the action is to en
force a mechanic's lien against Union
Block, owned by Dr. Black and the M.
E. church.' The lien being against the
whole block as an entirety, the
property representing two ab9tinct and
seperate interests. One very s-rious
question is whether the lie can be
maintained in this shape; also other
serious questions arise in tins case.
Mr. Arthur Wakely, son of Judge
Wakely, wifch whem our people are so
well acquainted, and Mr. R. S. Hall,
an attorney of Omaha, represent Mr.
Ballou, while Messrs. Smith and Bee
son and Hon. R. B. Windham repre
sent the defendants. We shall notice
this case more fully hereafter. ..

THE OLDEST CONDUCTOR.
The oldest railroad conductor in the
couutry iu point of active service is
said to be William Coulter, who has
charge of fast trains between New
York and Philadelphia, on the Pennsyl
vania railroad. IIi first train belonged
to the old New Jersey Transportation
company, ana ran oeiween jersey uny
and Newark. That was in 1810: in
1847 his run was extended to New
Brunswick, and in 1S72 he was put in
charge of through trains between New
York and Philadelphia. Referring to
his early service, Mr. Coulter recently
remarked: "jlailroading iu those days
was not so comfortable a business for
the conductors as it is now. We were
compelled to assist in braking, help the
baggage-master and not infrequently
lead a fight against the roughs who in
sisted upon riding for nothing. In place
of the splendidly upholstered saloon
cars now in use, connected with the en
gine with a bell rope, and with patent
steam brakes, wc ran compartment car9
after the Ewglish fashion of today,wilh
the passenger? fHfin each other. There
wire no cushions nor any backs to the
seats." The veteran conductor has
traveled 2,000,000 miles iu the line
uf dutv,and though he if nearly seventy
ycirs obi, he looks as if he were good
for many year more ot service.
LIVE AND LET LIVE.
Is has often been remarked that the
Inter-Ocean finds friends everywhere
in suburban cities and the country prt ss
One reason for this is that it has never
adopted the policy to pull anybody
down for a stepping-stone to power
and inlluenc. It has honestly asked
every subscriber to consider his first
duty to his home paper, and make that
as good as possible, and then the Inter-
Ocean has asked a consideration upon
its merits. It is in the power of the
intelligent people to make every home
paper, when wisely established, good
by proper patronage andencouragement
No man who owns a house or a farm,
or who claims a residence in any locali
ty, but is pecuniarily benefitted by hav
ing a well-conducted home paper, giv
ing all the local news. It is entirely
safe to say no man gets so much of
real value for the same amount of
money as he gets in his paper, costing
less than the price oi a single cigar or
a mug of beer. Inter Ocean.
