Csicaoo was startled Thursday when it was discovered that many cheap res taurants had been using horse flesh for beet. A raid on one market disclosed a lot ot horse meat for sale as beefsteak, also a lot of pickled horse meat labled "corned beef." The proprietor was ar rested. His partner escaped with sev eral old horses that were intended for slaughter. Jjosk nationalists denounce priestly i in political matters in Ireland. One ot them, J. Atkinson, says: "I am aa ardent Catholic in religious matters, but I think I am a Protestant in poli tic. Catholic Italy is ruled by non Catholics, Catholic France by non Catholics and the same condition is fast approaching in Peru, in Chili and in vary country where the prelates of the church meddle in political affairs. I think, then, we had better say (with deference and firmness) that we have no awe for a theocracy, no use for republics w Ireland controlled by a theocracy, no Saw for a home-rule parliament elected by the aid ot theocracy, and that we oar divinely-ordained spiritual i weald let our statesmen and pol lock after statesmanship and politics entirely." e Omaha Bee is after the oil inspec tion ot this state with a sharp stick, and says: The investigation of the Bee lead to the mafaaaion that the politicians who are drawing salaries for. inspecting negligent or corrupt, and in- ias the law has practically driven all competition with the great Standard oil monopoly out of the state, than is abundant reason for suspecting that this corporation controls the in i well as the sale of .the oil. the law was enacted, three chief t and a large number ot depu ties have been appointed to enforce it Iaawaaas hare those positions been They have l regarded aa spoils of of- have been dealt oat to political l aa payment tor political services. has been'-ased to pro- i a amag asr sasn waoae DHsmeas is for .the protection of .regulation ot a basi- . large proits may be made to aaltag iamrior oils at standard Use oeueves reform is neo- rj the oil inaprirhon service ot IwiU endeavor to quicken loftaaaelitioilwire-pal- 'ateaseatBablic the auforcemeat aavaaaammaeei A Shack at The earthquake shock ot Oct. 28, felt by the American bark Hssper, Capt Sodergen, at the harbor of Koke, Japan. Her standing rigging was carried away by the force of the shock. On October 30, when the vessel was about twenty five miles from Kobe on her homeward trip another violent shock occurred shortly after daybreak. A rumbling aa that of a submarine volcano was heard and -the sea was dashed into foam, the waves breaking over the vessel. The bark was shaken and tossed about most violently and maintopmast crosstrees went by the board. The deck was flood ed with water of a temperature so high as to seem almost boiling hot, and the air, which was filled with a sulphurous odor, became stifling. The strength of the vessel and her crow was taxed to the utmost for an hour and a half, but it was fully five hours before the storm ceased. Captain Sodergren then steered the ves sel to the southward to keep out ot the storm. He lost four days by his course, but as fair weather was experienced for the remainder of the voyage a quick run was made to San Francisco. Now that we have a right good system of voting, the Fremont Flail suggests would be a good time to elect all officers by the popular vote. The Journal has for many years favored this policy on principle, and there is no good objection to it The people, who at last pay all the bills, are the best judges in their own affairs. The forebodings ot some of the revolutionary fathers in regard to the non-ability of the common people to govern themselves have never been real ized, the truth being that in every crisis of our history, when as a government the will of the people was most closely ad hered to and followed, we had the best results. The class ot people who make their living by holding office, are not fa vorable, and it will never be made if they can prevent it The less power the peo ple have, the better it will suit profes sional politicians, but we shall never have a satisfactory administration of the laws, either national or municipal, until they can be enforced with an impartial hand, and outside the pale of local influ ence. Instead of being allowed to go from bad to worse and worst, as is the case in many places, the rule should be reversed and a radical change made along the line of better. Great evils are like great fires they should be circum vented and squelched, and, when possi ble, prevented. A dipperof water at the proper moment would have saved Chicago from the great conflagration that burned like a furnace. The leaven of better ways can work until "the whole lump is leavened." All the people can see better than some ot the people, and there is no good reason why they should not elect postmasters, U. S. marshals and senators, as well as county and city officers the general government too, in all things should be an expression of the popular sentiment Once a SaBporter or CeWea new of Me KiBley. John Byrne, sr., of Gladewater, Texas, writes as follows to the American Econ omist: I am getting your paper regularly. I am always glad when it comes. It is an encylopedia from which I can learn the social condition .of. the world. I am an Irishman by birth, but not of the McAdoo or Davitt school. I am an American by choice, but not of the sockless tribe or half-breeds. I served my time to a trade. I am now farming, but if I had to fall back on my trade, the robber baron here under, protection would pay me more than twice as much for doing the same work here as his friend in Ireland would pay me, and I can buy flour cheaper here than there. I can buy beef here for 5 cents a pound for which I would pay 20 cents there. For leave to drink a pound of tea there I had to pay 12 cents. It is free here. For leave to drink coffee, $3.50 per cwt, and for leave to chew tobacco, 5s a pound. To earn the price of one pound of tobacco, a farm laborer would have to work five days When young I was an ardent free trader and supporter of Cobden and Bright I tell it with shame. The big cheap loaf was tempting. I never thought until too late how the poor rack-rented struggling farmer was forced to supply the cheap loaf, till I saw the murderous crowbar brigade, under the protection of troops burning them out of their houses and turning their land into game preserves. I saw these farmers afterward wheel ing barrows on government work for 9 cents a day. I knew a good strong plow man who worked for the rector of Bal inahinch, county Down, for 18 cents per day without board. I have known horseshoers to work in the county Deny from 6a.m until 10 at night for Is 25 cents a day, of our money. Please tell this to Mr. McAdoo, as I see by one of my papers about how degrading protec tion is to American citizenship. I have worked at my trade in Ireland from 5 a. m. till 7 in tho evening for 9s a week without board. I am now getting old, but even now-working at theaame trade in America, I could earn 48s a week thanks to our protective system. The only degrading thing would be having to carry a three-quart tin dinner pail in place of a more genteel one just holding a small pint NEBRASKA NOTES. A charity ball at Fremont realized $250. Burglars at Wilsonville robbed Letson & Artz of SGOin money, Tuesday night ot last week. ElnoiiScoU, a young lady student at University Place became insane Wednesday.

Private Turner ot company D, Eighth infantry, tho company tailor, froze to death near Fort Bobinson.

Mack ft Co, lumber dealers at Albion, waa robbed Tuesday night of last week, of about $65. The office of Montgomery & Jaycox was also entered, but after tampering with the outer door ot the safe, the burglars seemed to have been scared off. It is said that there are beds ot fine cement rock in different portions ot the state, and the managers of the Urge Portland cement manufactory of New York have been in correspondence with the bureau of statistics, with a view of opening their works in Nebraska. An irrigating canal near Sidney baa been completed, thirty-five miles in length, that will irrigate 100,000 acres ot land. That is intelligent bwnaess, good horse sense, a step in the right direction, the proper thing to do, and will no doubt make the lands productive, and worth four times what they were. It looks now aa though the cement rock of this state will soon be utilized. Two quarries exist one at Beatrice and one at Sidney. The former was operated at one time, but work waa stopped be cause ot high priced coal and freight rates, but these objections are about to be removed, and it ao tho state at large will be greatly benefited. Last Thursday Dr. Lester removed a large bead from the ear ot the four-year- old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. & D. Cos, which had become very pnfnl. From what the- little girl told it must have been in her ear at least a week, and it was only by her complaining of her ear hurting her that the bead waa discover ed by Mrs. Coe. D. a News. Wasklagtea Letter. From our regular correspondent. The national republican committee held a very harmonious meeting here to day; elected. Oen. Clarkson to succeed Senator Quay as chairman, and selected the place and date for the meeting ot the national convention next year. For two daya past the corridors ot the hotel in which the committee held its meeting navereminoea one or national conven tional times, owing to the presence of so many republicans ot national promi nence. The members ot the eommittee have an abiding faith in the success of the party next year, and for that reason they determined to make no mistake which should be serious enough to jeopardize that success. The selection of Gen. Clarkson for chairman and the date set for the convention meets with unanimous approval, but as was to be expected after the sharp rivalry, the se lection ot the place for the convention to meet has caused sore disappointment. But no more than waa inevitable. Only one place could get the honor, and those who are disappointed because it was not their city have the consolation ot know ing that a good and honorable fight was made by them all. Tammany Hall sent Governor-Senator Hill over here to put in some preliminary licks in favor of the election of its can dJdate Crisp-to the spssksrship. Of course Hill did not dare disobey the orders of Tammany, but it waa assy to see that he was out of his elemeat in Washington, and he got away as aoon aa possible, and it is understood that he will do the rest of his work for the tigers candidate in New York City; where, surrounded by his ''heelers,' he feels more at home than he does in Washington. Secretary Proctor's annual report is a model of its kind, and shows that, be leaves the war department in much bet ter shape than he found it" r The system of drying paper money by steam has, by order of the secretary of the treasury, bean discontinued at the bureau of engraving and printingraad in future, all money printed at the bu reau will be dried by the natural process before it is delivered to the treasury to be circulated. It was thought that the steam drying was responsible for the blurred appearance which many of the notes show after a little handling, and that it weakened the tbre of the paper to a marked extant, thus shortening the time the note would last.
