And now the New York hod car riers are on a fctrike for higher wages. They evidently don't pro propose to mount a scaffold without a proper recompense in this world ? Senator Tiiton's reasons for voting egainfet the civil rights bill only confirm what people of Ne braska have known long ago, that our H?nior Senator is nothing, if not an arrant demagogue. Pkofkssok Tvndaia may as well retire with his prayer guage. Accor ding to Geo. Washington Van Cott: "The prayer of the Republican was answered and a refreshing shower came on Saturday evening." Nothing very definite has reach ed us, eo far, from the Oregon elec tion. The report that Grover, the Democratic candidate for Governor, is elected, needs confirmation. The Independents have carried several counties, but it will probably require offlcial returns before the result of State ticket can bo positively an nounced. The effort of the Council Bluffs claimants to pass the bill compel ling the U. P. railroad to operate their road to Spoon, Lake through the lower house'of Congress, under a suspension of the rules, proved a most ignominious failure. The bill is shelved for the present session, and that virtually puts it beyond a resurrection. Accokdino to the public debt fctatement just published, the de cereaso of the National debt during the month of 3Iay was nearly four millions and a half. That speaks well for the economy of the Admin istration. It seems to us, however, that a decrease of public taxation would be preferable just now to a decrease of the public debt Cor- Noteware will have to look to his laurels. Colorado has heard about his forty thousand Rus sians, and the officers of the Denver &Kio Grande Railroad have con cocted a scheme to induce them to pettle on their lands in the Arkan Valley. Thej have recently issued p, manifesto to the Mcnnonite por tion of the Russians, assuring them that Indian scares are over and dance houses and faro banks have taken a back scat The premium list of the Nebras ka State Board of Agriculture and State Horticultural Society for the eighth annual exhibition, to be held in Omaha between September 29th and October 2d, is now on our table. It Is a neatly printed pamphlet, covering sixty-five pages, devoted chiefly to a classification of the in dustries that are to compete for pre eminence at the coming fair. Want of time and space prevent an ex tended notice, and we therefore re serve our comments upon the pro gramme to some future day. As will be seen by our Washing ton dispatches, General Thayer has made an able argument in behaJiLa? Omaha, as the initial jxAit of the Union Pacific, beforethe Senate -Taciflc ItaAVsMdf Committee. No body is better qualified for such a task than General Thayer. His familiarity with the Union Pacific Charter, and the fact that the amendments to that document, and the U. P. bridge bill, was enacted while he was a member of the Sen ate Pacific Railroad Committee, give him peculiar advantages in this respect; and we apprehend that Omaha appreciates these ser vices in her behalf. Tally one more for Moses. We mean, of course, Moses of South Carolina, who has won another bloodless victory by his Mosaic stra tegy. It appears his trial for grand larceny was set for last Friday at Orangeburg. The trial did not, however, come off for the reason that Moses found it more convenient to be absent The Solicitor for the State asked for a warrant of arrest, but the Court refused It The coun sel for Moses then moved to strike the case from the docketf on the ground that the Governor cannot be indicted and tried for any crime before impeachment The Court reserved its declsion,and postponed he case till the next court, whlcK meete in October. This is regarded pt a substantial triumph for Moses. POLICE XSF0HX. Witev William P. Snowden en tered upon the discharge of his ofli- I cial duties as City Marsnai oi umu ha, he assured the public that he proposed to inaugurate radical re form through our entire police sys tem. So far the Bee fails to observe nnv-tbinc verv radical or very re formatory in this important branch of the public service. It is true the Marshal has issued a bombastic and long-winded set of rules for the government of the po lice rce. but these rules can hardly be ot practical service as long as the old plunder and blackmail system is countenanced and kept up by the Marshal himself. Nobodv knows better than Marshal Snowden that the employment of a constable to serve writs from the Police Courtis simply an ingenious evasion of the letter and spirit of the charter, me framers of the charter expressly prohibited the Marshal and Police from collecting any fees for tne ar rests of violators of the ordinances, nr for testifvinir in the Police Court. This was done to protect innocent parties from imposition oy greeuy policemen who would frequently make indiscriminate arrests for the sole purpose of pocketing the fees. This wholesome provision has be come a dead letter, because the Marshal places his favorite constable into tho Polioe Court, instead of de tailing a police officer for this duty. The constable Is under no restraints from the charter, and hence he finds some rich pickingin the Police Court. We have already denounced this practice, and must again repeat that it is an imposition which should no longer be tolerated. And now lot ub say a few words about the Omaha social evil system, which wo have good reason to believe has done more to corrupt and demoralize our police force than any other known agency. It has all tho worst features of the license system without any of its redeeming qualities. While prostitution is treated as a crime its habitual votaries are made to do penance by regular monthly fines. These fines were originally intended as contributions to the publlo school fund, but practic ally the greater portion has been systematically appropriated by a confederate spy, who receives his authority through the Marshal, and plays the part of informer and of ficer. Thss is by no means the worst feature. The system Is tho source of unblushing frauds both upon the city and the social evil viotims. These frauds are perpe trated under cover of the law, and money is extorted which never sees the City Treasury. Other transac tions of a most scandalous char acter have been reported to us, which cannot but have a very demoraliz ing tendency on our police force. Of these these the Marshal who has been in the service several years can hardly be ignorant. P. S. Since writing this article, we have received a communication, touching this subject, from Judge Wilbur. This communication will be found in our local coulmns. While it corrects some errors in our esti mate of the amounts collected by the Police Court from the social evilists, it does not materially alter the fact that the employment of a go-between to attend to this class of offenders by the Marshal affords a great scope for swindling and blaokmalllng. Parties who claim to be posted de clare that there are not less than two hundred women in Omaha to day that would properly come un der the social evil ordinance. While they do not all live in public houses they could be readily fereted out by an efficient officer. Out of this number, according to the Judge's showing, only forty-nine were re turned by the Marshal. Did the others escape because they were not known ? and how niany have been induced to make private settle ment without the knowledge of the Marshal? An able article against the pro posed reduction of the army appears in the New York World. The fol lowing extract is deemed worthy of reproducti m : The cheap virtue of Congress is no more cheering to contemplate than its c stly vice. It could not have show n cheaper virtue than it showed yesterday by passiug the bill for the reduction of the army, against the remonstrance of Gen. Sherman, against the remonstrance of the Secretary' of War, and with out the Mipport, so far as we arc ad vised, of a single respectable mili tary name. The officers of the army arc on the whole and with wonderfully few exceptions- fSe ablest and falthfullest public ser vants wehaxnC ,AATnofevery man who holds a commission in the arm' has won it by some definite achievement, after a real probation of his fitness for it As to the qualification and the pro bation by which members of Con gress have won their seats, we can not do better than cite the saying of that candid Congressman from Oregon who told the House the oth er day that on his first introduction into that august assembly he won dered In humility and admiration how he got there, and after a ses bion his wonder grew to be a won der how any of them cot there Doctor Lathasi, we all know was a very scientific sheep raiser, but Ihe Doctor is completely eclip sed by Gen. Brisbin. The General has just written a column and a half in the Chicago Tribune on that interesting topic, and quite apart from the statistical array of facts and figures, his article contains an exhaustive history of wool-growing. The General has evidently been studying agricultural science in the American Cyclopaedia. Rochefort's latest epigram. If there be anything in the world more rediculous than a Republic without Republicans, it is a monarchy with out a monarch. OscAHA can hardly be pronounced dead as long as fractional corner lots 22x60 bring $3000 at a forced public sale. HOffEY FOR THE LADIES. The girl that g'ts a right good kiss, And blows to a crusader. May she lire and die an old, old maiJ, Just what herfolly made her. Lawrence (Kan.) Standard. Blue cheviot linen suits for travel ing will encase the female form. A young lady at Portland has bought a yacht, and intends sailing her, accompanied by lady friends only. A scarf of silk, tied with a tiny bow around the wrist, is shown on both plain ana eiaDoraie costumes. Salem, Oregon, has a female bar ber.

TMnitwl Wouse waists will be worn again as parts of most dresses, and also white waists will be worn with dark skirts. Gray woolen suits, trimmed with dark violets, are greatlY in favor with young ladies, especially with blondes. To accompany seaside suits, there nrp crass-linen collars and cravats combined, banded with white linen. The same style appears in blue and white camoric. Belts will still be worn, as they possess the merit of sustaining the waist and. rendering walking less fatiguing. Cashmere belts profusely beaded are most In vogue. Flora McMimsey has discarded her bonnet and donned theRabagas for the balance of the season. She has also her pagoda sunshade, her linen suit and lyje thread gloves all ready for Instant use. It js the fancy to wear flowers wherever they can be introduced, and tho sashes of lace polonaises are caught at the back by a knot of roses and drooping clematis or lillies of the valley.

O verskiris have leen finall y merg ed Into a simple apron front, all the puffing, looping, &c, being concen trated at the back in a very peculiar style, which gives to little women the appearance of deformity. Lit tle women, however, are the last to believe that this is the case. Sashes made of ribbon and lace alternately are quite the correct thing. The new qups are of real laeo and handsomo gros grain, of course, but the imitation affairs are coming right along, and In a little while theso now and pretty things will be "common." yew York Mail. There is an unusually thin gauze veil now in fashion among the ladies. 'Ifls white in color, and has an edging of lace as a "set off'," we suppose. These are called "com plexion veils," and for that reason we infer negro women wear them on "Clem's Sunday out." London has revived the manufac ture of dumb pianos foryoung ladies who wish to practise Thalbergian fingering, and the great West, in its agony of discord from every farm house, upllftsit voice for the removal of all protective duties on musical instruments. Shoes still match the dress in color for house wear ; but for promenade black kid boots, buttoned at the sides, are popular. For home wear, high black satin, with bars across the instep and almost to the top, with colored silk stockings that match the dress, are the handsomest articles to wear. White ecru and the different shades of gray are the favorite colors far summer costumes. There are also immense quantities of pretty half-striped lawns imported, with chintz fern leaf-wheat-ear, or lace-like borderings, which make cool house dresses, and are very in expensive. Some one says if we would show ourselves really good to our daugh ters we "must be generous to them in a truer sense than that of hang ing trinkets on their necks." No words could" be more sensible. Nine girls out of ten would rather have a "handsome feller" hanging round them than a necklace. Parents should remember this. At the last grand ball in Wyo ming, one young lady was attired in a buffgrosgrained buckskin dress, with army-blanket over-skirt, bot tom looped up with buckskin strings cut bias; hair dressed a la Red Cloud, in which were twined a few sprigs of sage brush, the whole se cured behind in a bunch with a handsome pin made with a pine splinter and a buffalo's ear.

If you have to walk and ride both, do the riding first, and on returning go to a warm room, and keep on all your "wraps until your forehead Is dry. Spirit of the Press. The prospects for a district fair at Lincoln, which has been set for Sep tember 22-25 at present are not very eucouraging. Outsideof Lancaster county there seems to be but little interest manifested concerning it. We think the originators of th3 scheme made a mistake in starting the movement That it was inten ded as a diversion in favor of Lin coln and with the full knowledge if not the desire that its success would be at the expense of the State fair is patent to every one. In case Lin coln should again secure the location of the State fair this action will be remembered to her disadvantage by the people of the North Platte. Fairbury Gazette. Why did not Gov. Furnas sign the bill for a Constitutional Conven tion at the last session of the legis lature, and save the expense of an extra session, or does he expect to redeem his pledges to the western counties, by adding a few thousand to the expenses of the State, only to give us a few years earlier change of constitution, far better appoint a few more staff officers, Brigadier Gen'ls, Colonels, Captains, We know of a few more who who would like to have their names written high in the temple of fame. Look well to the North and West. Da kota Mail. We need cheaper fuel and faster time. All summer long empty, half-ladened cars are returning home from the great coal mines of Wyoming, and when winter comes and fuel is necessary, there is little or none to be had, and what is for sale is at an enormous price. The Union Pacific Railroad Company Directors certainly do not compre hend the wants of the people along its line or they would make provi sion to remedy this great evil. It is to their interest as much as to any one's, and more. They have millions of acres of land for sale ana the sooner it is sold the better. Then they would be free from taxa tion, comparatively, and instead of the lands being an expense to them, the accruing payments would be an income to them. Again : The bet ter settled the State is, the more work there will be for the Railroad, and local freight will increase in proportion to the number of Inhabi tants eaoh county along its line em braces. It would thus make busi ness for the Company and increase the value of their lands, and what they would lose by freighting coal at half the present figures, would be returned tenfold in other ways.

Golden, Colorado, has a spirit ualized or haunted piece of wood under one of the largest safes in town. There has been placed a piece of 3x4 timber to equalize the pressure on the floor. Each morn ing upon opening the office where this safe is placed, the timber is found at right angles to its position the evening before, leaving one cor ner of the safe without support. No explanation of this peculiar freak has yet been given. The way they reproduce in Paris their birth, death and marriage registers, burned in the Palace of Justice during the Commune, is curious enough. They remain in their original shape, but charred completely. The back is cut off, the mass wetted and exposed to the mouth of a stove. The water evaporating raises the sheets, and the writing stands out shining upon dull black like the silken flowers on velvet brocade. It is easily deciph ered and copied, with a note stating that it is reproduced from the car bonized original. AN IMPORTANT SUIT. The State of Nebraska after John I. Blair & Co. Valuable Property Under Contest. (Wet Tolnt republican.) On last Saturday Attorney Gen eral J. E. Webster filed a petition in the district court of Uuining county, asking for the reoovery of all lands in tho county, or their value if transferred, ceded by the State of Nebraska to the S. C. & P. Railroad Company for building the "plug" road from Desota to Blair, in Washington county. Suits vpUri :il-j ho pommpiinwl in Hin cavrfitino of Burt, Washington, triid Dodge, for the recoveryoJKLe same lands amountiiiKffall to 48,000 acres, whicu-st52.o0 an acre, would foot 20.000. The petition prays for the recoverj' of all their lands still in possession of the railroad company or "stockholders, and for the recover of the value of all said lands which have passed into the hands of innocent and disinterested purchasers. These lands it will be remembered were donated and deeded to the I ail road Company in question, un der the provisions of an act of the legislature passed in ISO", entitled, "An act to donate seventy-five sec tions of the public lands of the State to the Northern Nebraska R. R., to aid in the construction of a railroad from Desoto, in Washington county, to Fremont, in Dodge county!" This act specified the time at which the road should be completed and operated, in order to entitle the company to the laud'. The North ern Nebraska R. 11. Company, as is well known, upon completion of the "plug" from Desoto to Blair, con solidated with the S. C. & P. Com pany, or claimed so to do. The S. C. & P. R. R. Compaii3', after build ing its road to Fremont, claimed the lands under the provisions of the act cited, and succeeded in getting a ueea oi mem. The petition of the Attorney Gen eral in behalf of the State, avers that the road was not completed by the time specified by the act under which the lands were ceded, that the Northern Nebraska Railroad Com pany was not organized in conform ity with the laws of the State, and that it was not lawfully consolida ted with the S. C. & P. R. R. Co., in consequence ot which the lands were not legally transferWd to such Company. The case Is a very important one, and contains sevcrul fine points which will, without doubt, be ably argued by the best legal talent of of tho West, and will be contested inch by inch to the very end. The case of the State of Nebras ka against J. I. Blair and others, for the recovery of the lands, or their value, deeded to the stockholders of the Sioux City and Pacific Rail road, promises to be one of great In terest, and if the result is favorable to the State it will be beneficial to the counties of Dodge, Washington, Burt and Cuming, in which the lands are located. It would throw several thousand acres of excellent land in the market at low rates, and thus bring many settlers with in the counties named. A summons was served on John I. Blair as he passed down the road, by Sheriff Frey. The summons was issued in the case of the State of Nebraska against John I. Blair, et al., to recover the lands or their value, deeded defendants by the State. The Oldest EstaD usheo BANKING HOUSE IX XKIIKASKA.
