known a more contemptible, malicious,
meaningless liar in all our experience of

Says the Omaha Bee:
"A great grain market involves some
thing more man an open board for trans
actions. It involves mills, warehouses,
elevators, malt houses, and distilleries.
These must come before the market can
be great, and these should be looking
longingly at Omaha to-day. "
They are, they are indeed they are!
They are longing lor Omaha monied
men to "put up" something beside con
solidated boards of - trade and wind.
They are longing for a slight glimpse of
Omaha cash.
Signs of Decay in the Old Country.
The N- Y. Sun of a late date bad an
interesting article on the above subject.
In a recent number of a Paris periodi
cal.the Seme Liberate, an American con
tributor, Mr. Simon W. Hanauer, con
trasts the economical and political pros
pects of Europe with those of the United
States. He starts with the assumption
that the best way to determine a nation's
grade oi civilization and possibilities of
progress is to compare its annual out
lay for the education of the masses of
its inhabitants with the other expendi
tures provided for in its : bndget, and
especially with the sums disbursed with
a view to war. He then proceeds to
lay before us some very interesting sta
tistics, showing how much is expended
by European countries for public in
struction on the one band, and for the
nstiocal defence upon the other.
Beginning with Germ my, we find
that to schools (exclusive of universi
ties, which are to a large extent main
tained by private endowments and fees)
only about 110,000,000 re devoted by
the state. Against this insignificant
outlay we are to set nearly 1185, 000,000
ennually disbursed for military and
naval purposes. In the dual monarchy
of Austria-Hungary the army and navy
cost 164,500,000 a year, while only 96,'
250,000 are allotted to education. In
Italy the condition is still more deplor
able, for the subjects of King Huoert
have to pay almost 190,000,000 yearly
for the protection of their country, and
can only afford to spend 14,000,000 on
the system of public instruction, exclu
sive of the universities. France is do
ing more for the next generation, al
though the sum annually allotted to
public schools (121,000,000 in round
numbers) is very far from being ade
quate, and contrasts strangely with the
(151,000,000 called for by the military
and naval estimate. The data present
ed by Russia are less discouraging than
might have been expected, though they
are suficiently unsatisfactory to the so
cial philosopher. .Russia assigns to edu
cational appliances nearly 117,000.000 a
year, or more than four times as much
as Italy, though, on the other hand,
she spends yearly for her army and navy
$209,000,000. Even in England the dis
proportion is striking, for the army and
navv cost $150,000,000, while less than
124,000,000 are laid out for public edu
cationexclusive of the universities,
most of which have funds of their own
Should, however, the education bill now
pending become a law, the sum annual
y devoted to the public school system
will be greatly increased. The most mel
ancholy exhibit is made by Spain.wbere
the army and navy cost upwards of
100,000,000 a year, whereas the gov-
government can only spare 11,500,000
for the liberal and technical education
of her citizens.
From these facts Mr. Hanauer draws
the inference that in the twentieth cen
tury Europe cannot hope to cempete
fcr economical preeminenee and politi
cal power sgalnst the United States,
which are not crushed with the burdens
of enormous armaments, and which
re consequently able to devote an ade
quate amount cf their resources to the
education cf the people. Compared
with the auspicious prospects of the
American republic the position cf Eu

Tax Inheritances.
W call particular attention to the ex
tract printed elsewhere, from Prof.
Richard T. Ely's paper, on the taxation
of inheritances, in the .Yorth American
Reiiew for July. The Xeu Xalion has
frequently advocated tbe taxation of
inherited property, as the fairest, least
burdensome method of raising the nec
essary revenue of the state in the pres
ent condition of society. "' We believe
that tbe tax might properly be placed
at such a proportion of tbe amount in
herited as should produce a fund en
abling tbe state not only to dispense
with many present forms of taxation,
but to adopt a more liberal public policy
in various directions, and especially in
the extension to tbe masses of the peo
ple of facilities for a higher education.
As a starter, we would propose a tax of
say 5 per cent on all estates over $5,000
and less than $10,000; of 10 per cent on
larger estates, with not less than 20 per
cent on estates of $1,000,000. This can
not be regarded as a very radical propo
sition, when no less a millionaire than
Andrew Carnegie is quoted by Prof.
Ely as proposing that the inheritance
tax be placed at 50 per cent.
It is a curious illustration, we may
say in passing, of the confusion of men's
standards, in this wonderful period of
transition, that a man like Mr. Car
negie, while defending on tbe one band
an iudividual license as to methods of
acquiring wealth which nationalists ut
terly condemn, should go quite beyond
the average nationalist iu the drastic
quality of the methods by which be pro
poses to enforce the distribution of that
wealth for public purposes, when once
acquired. It would be strauge, indeed,
however, if he did not, in common with
all thoughtful persons, recognize that
the transmission from one generation
to another of vast and constantly accu
mulating estates, is a peril to the repub
lic which demands a vigorous remedy.
Prcf. Ely advocates the idea that the
tax should be light in proportion as the
relative is near tothe deceased. It
seems to us that he and the authorities
he follows, are wrong here. The effect
of this dU-riuiiuatiou would be to ills-
courage the distribution of estates, aud
cause them to be left en masse in the
direct lio. which is against public poli
cy, as tending to the permanence of
gteat fortunes.,!; .Vation.

Happenings in Omaha. ,
At the last meeting of the Omaha
independent club Mr. G. W. Brewster
read a paper be had written for the Bte
in answer to an art hi e on the gold
standard by Andrew Carnegie. The
article was well compose! and the lite
of course, refused to print St. Mr.
Brewster stated that he was a republi
can, but his financial views were with
tbe independents, lie further said if
the republican party did not change its
financial policy he would leave it, as
many others would who had not al
ready. The next speaker, Mr. T. C.
Kelsey, warned him by saying if he laid
down with hogs be would get up with
fleas. We think Mr. B. is already , ao
independent, but don't know it. As
Congressman Rem says, "he is not yet
quite weaned."
There will be a mass meeting of all
labor organizations at the Grand Opera
bouse Monday evening, July 20th, for
the purpose of discussing the eight-hour
law, There is do doubt but a gr?s.t
many of the corporations cere are guing
to try to evade it. Billon & Douk, mat
tress makers, started tbeir men on
eight hours lat Monday. Tbe boys are
well-pleased with the change.
Mr. EJgerton is the choice of the in
dependents of this city for supreme
Judge. They know he would give us
equal and exact justice as well as trust
worthy law. '
The independents of Omaha have had
tbeir rights trampled o a by Thayer re
fusing to appoint one of their number
n the fire and police , commission.
There seems to be no way to compel
him to observe the law but when we
elect a real governor be can follow the
precedent set by Thayer and appoint
the whole commission from the inde
pendent ranks. I expect about that
time they will be shouting around want
ing a non-partisan commission. (Rats!)
The effect of the present commission is
plainly seen. Quite a number of po
licemen have told your correspondent
on the sly that they would vote with us,
but that they dare not be seen at our
club meetings or our labor meetings.
They dare not even ask the commission
ers to obey tbe eight-hour law. Is not
that nice lor a free country;

CTeaCloM of she World.
In a recent address before the st ite
association of Congregnlionalcburdics
Dr. It W. Raymond mentioned as a
sample of the courageous and consist
ent literalism of the last generation
one of the introductory notes int'ru
den's concordance, discussing tbe sea
son at which tbe creation occurred,
and favoring the conclusion that it
whs BUluron, because, (among other
reasons) apples were ripe. Heveral
persons have since made inquiry as to
this passage, not having found it in
Cruden under the word Creation. It
will be found (we tbink In all editions
of tbo concordance, though we have
examined only the American edition
of 1841, from the tenth London ell
tion) under World, as follows:
It is alto inquired at what reason
of the year tbe world- was created.
The generality of the futheri thtnlc it
was created In tbe spring. But a
great number of others, among whom
are the most learned cbronologlsts,
contend t$ the world was ccea'ea in
autumn. The urge: 1. That the
Hebrews, the Egyptians, and nMt ot
tbe Orientals began their year at
autumn, which custom they bed re
ceived from their ancestors, and they
from the first men, who would natu
rally commence their year lrotn tbo
time when the world began, it. When
Cod created Adam and Eve, and all
other animals, He was to provide
them with necessary nourishment.
3. There was (ruitupon the trees in the
Garden of Eden, Gen. ill, S, 3, It was
therefore autumn, tbey say, in what
ever place we suppose Adum to have
been created." - - ... '
Those who have felt incredulous
that such reasoning as this should be
found in books of Biblical study still
in common use, may be Inter. uted to
know that tbe Rev, Dr. Tnlmaje. of
Brooklyn, in a sermon preuched May
24, 1801, narrated the Creation
at length, upon Scriptural author,
ity, with running comments, and
(as the newspapers reported
him, and as we are assured by per
sons who were present) declared that
it took place in May, beginning at 4
o'clock on Monday morning! We
suspect that Monday must have been
a slip of the tongue. If not, the doc
tor is a heretic, and in danger of the
Presbytery. But correcting that
slight error, he is In accord with '-the
generality of the fathers," though
not, as Cruden says, with "the most
learned chronoloyists."
As to hi further reported declara
tion that light was lirnt created, in
order that the admiring hosts of
heaven might have the opportunity to
see the glorious exhibition that fol
lowed, we do not feel so sure that tbe
generality ot tbe fathers would be
with him. Possibly they would find
fault with hi m for adding a ploeo ot
purely human speculation to the In
fallible record. But something must
be pardoned to the contagious spirit
of the ti co.

Everybody admits the sinfulness ot
giving offense, because be t un do that
while still thinking of his neighbor.
Hut comparatively few refieot upon
the impropriety of taking o!Ttnit-e,

the -' elevation of the ' few
to lordllnesa, but tbe elevation of the
many to manliness and womanliness,
is too great end in view, and that end
becomes a vanishing quantity when
power of mind or wealth segregates
with a comparatively small class,
which Is removed from an intimate
knowledge of, and sympathy with, the
life of the tmusee. If higher education
sublimes to lofty heights, in colleges
and universities, without diffusing in
to tbe general lite,-and forming the
upward extensions of that life, the
peaks and pinnacles of the generic
mind, then the formation of an intel
lectual clafs seems to be unavoidable;
for if education is cut off from a re
actionary effect on tbe general
state it becomes at once
subjective and self-contemplative.
That is not exactly what .we want.
That is not Hercules, tbe giant armed,
annihilating human disabilities. It is
not Christ, tho spiritual magnet,
drawing the whole world up Into
matchless perfection. It Is rather a
dapper Adonis, gathering up his
dainty skirts and saying: ' Keep
away; don't touch me; you arc ignor
ant;'! am educated; I am better than
you."
Unless I am much mistaken, there is
thla tendency in higher education;
not enough to worry about; only
enough, perhaps, to furnish- amuse
ment to tho general eye. Wealth
pushes the tendency forward faer,
but mind culture goes the same way
with slower steps. When it ceases to
be a world-inspiration, it begins to
weave an environment of Inaccesslt
bility about itself and declines to use
its force in tbe struggle with human
limitations. From "Alms of Univer

some day," answered her husband.
"I do not know her equal in good
works."
"1 urn tilk'ng about eirthly milli
nery now," answered hi wile, as ahe
picaed up tbe discussion again.
Meanwhile Mrs. B bus returned
home and taken off the offending hat,
which she handed to her daughter.
"Thank you, . Kuby," she said. "I
suppose my bonnet bus come back."
"Yes, dear," answered her daugh
ter, "and Mrs.. - was so grateful
because you lent it tb her. She said
sbe could not afford to bjy mourning
for her boy," .
-It was a small favor to do for ona
In trouble," answered the mother,
gently.
And the wagging tongues never
reached her.
Hilling tbe Tongue.
Do not talk too much. Learn bow
to be silent. There is nothing like
the man or woman that can keep the
mouth shut. Not that people should
always keep the toncue mill; it is
made for use; but tbere are times
wbon silence is the best and most ef
fective reply. When a boor speaks
roughly or uncivilly to you, when you
are asked an impertinent question,
when a sneer Is conveyed under cover
ot an inquiry of information, or when,
having appealed to you on a ques
tion of laste, your opinion
is met with ridicule, the
best answer in theso or like exigen
cies is masterful silence, bespeaking
reserve power, conscious strength,
dignity, self-command; and nothing ut
times is so effective as tbe silence
which springs from contempt. He
who can endure reproach silently, and
can keep silent undor trying circum
stances, is a man ot no common char
acter. He who Is irritated, and who
loses control ot tongue and temper, Is
at the mercy of bis opponent. He
who can keep calm and cool, can mold
men us he will. Tbe cold bummer
bends the hot iron. "If any man of
fend not In word, the same is a rr
tct man, and ablo also ta bridle th
whole body."
