I no topic of vital importance upon

these is duo care that all welh are dug
at a safe dis ance from vaults and cess
pools and nt the

elopa in the ground. Care should
nlso be taken that no refuse matter
during the summer saason be allowed
ti accumulate in the neighborhood of

be thoroughly ventilated.
In the cities ono of the most fruit
ful sources of ma'aria f * filthy alleys

refuse and offal of the adjoining build

it as hU' opinion that next to imper

there are a number of these pest-

diate attention. Filth breeds disease

pprrading themselvM in every direc

We still adhere to our origins
views concerning the ownership of the
water work * . All things being equal ,
we should consider it safer and more
advantageous to have the works built

The money invested in water works
by a home company will necrswrily be
withdrawn from actiye usa in other
enterprises such as hotels factoties'and
store houses which are much needed

caf ital invested in Omaha increases

ACCORDING to a writer in the Inter

000,000 bushels. Wii hin thirty years
ho corn centre. has been hansferre.l
from the south to the west , and the
wheat centre from the middle states
o the west. The tobacco increase
lag , of course , been in the southern
tales. Within the sam period the
cotton crop has incroasd from 3,012-
000 bales to 5,210,000. Arkansas
and Texas are the largest gainers
rom the increase in cotton.

The Democratic- Split In Vlrffinla.

The oplit in tha democratic party in
iT'irginia , which has led to the forma-
ion of two electoral tickets , becomes
nteresting. It ba * an anxious inter-
tst for the democrats and a dimly-
icpeful interest for .the ropublicgn" .

ra ? fce partjsj vopudjaqon of the
state debt of Virginia ; but most pee
pie are puzzled to know why that ol (
trouble should have split the democ
racy on the presidency ; or what the
readjusters hope to gain by running i
second democratic electoral ticke
pledged for the same candidates
f : > r president and vice presi
dent as those named at Staui
ton last May. The Key to the puzzle
is the ambition of Gen. William
fllahone , tbe leader of thia readjuatei
party , and his associates. .These gen
tlemen saw a chance to divide the p > tr
ty on the debt question , and ride into
popularity and power on the repudia
tion issue. They eeceded from the
regular democratic party upon the
question of accepting the settlomen
cf ihe d'jbt proposed by the bond
holders in the McCnlloch bill and do
fcatod the measure. Tnen they orga
nized for victory in state politics

Last winter tJ.e readjuatera pis ed a
new debt bill , carrying the scaling
down process farther than had eve ;
been done before ; but this was veioei
by the regular democratic governor
Hlliday. . The trouble next tppearec
in the electoral cunvuntioua. The
regular democracy met iu Stauntoi
last May , and the readjustee callet
their convention for July 7. Some o
their representatives appeared a
Staunton and rsked tha' the nomi
nation of an elec'oral ticket ba poU
ptnied to July when the two factious
could unite. Thia was tefused , em
the regulars nomiiiHtud their electors.
It was supposed that the roadjutters
would acquiesce ; but on the cc ntr ry
they met m convention MI Richmond ,
Wednesday , and nominated a ful
electoral ticket , instructing the
elector to vote for Hancock and En
glish for president and vice president.
Of course the only object of this is to
ci lull out the regular democratic or-
gjii'zation ' and confirm the supremacy
i f the readjusters iu the btato. They
de-sire to preserve their separate or
ganization to facilitate their contest in
the congressional districts. They have
suvetal candidates fo'r congress , whom
they expect to elect , among them
Henry A. Wise. They think they
can best accomplish th s with a separ
ate electoral ticket. Beside ? , their
nomination is a threat to the regular
orinnizVions. The democratic ma
jority m Virginia is not so large that
the party can afford to go in
to a contest with two electoral
tickets in the field Tha fact
that both of them are pledged to Han
cuck will not prevent his defeat in
Virginia , if the Garfield electoral
ticket , happens to have a plurality
over both of them. The regular de
mocrats are frightened by the threat ,
and re.ilize their responsibility , as the
smallest faction , for any defeat that
may come from a failure to unite the
ticket. They have already made
overtures for fusion , which it ia likely
enough will end In their complete sur
render and support of the Mahone
t ckut. This result will complete the
triumph of the repudiatura , and make
Mahone the Demi cratic autocrat of
tl-eSt te. On the ether hand , if the
regulars are stubborn and keep thuir
ticket in the field , the bnlJ step of
Mahono may ruin him , and Garfield
may get the State.

Albauy Evcti'n ? Journal. ( Rep. )
The rebel claims , amounting to mil
lions of dollars , which have stood for
jcara in awe of the veto of a republi
can president , would be rushed through
at the earliest moment , were the dem-
ocrara given undisputed possession at
Washington. The pirty at the south
which rcjcc'ed the reconciliation poli
cy of Hayes would dominate the fed
eral executive. The parly which has
made the soutl "solid" under "white
men's government" aBid degraded
humanity its-lf by Innumerable as
saults and ( utrauis upon defenceless
repub'icans ' , white and black , would
1-iycliimto and r ceive its delayed
regard as soon as the democratic par
ty was given tl > e reins of power.
Why Garflela Will be Elected.
The re.tfiipii why we are confident
that Garfield will be elected president
of 'hn United States in November ,
1880 , is bfcjuno we have n cbidiuj ,
confidence in the patriotism and good
common sense of the American people
ple The people who suppressed the
rebellion and saved the government
ate not fools enough to put in power
ilrj partv that rebelled and sought to
dest-oy the government. We will ad
mit the gray to equal privileges , but
the blue nnift continue in charge of
tno fruits of their victory. This is
the main p' nk in the platform upon
which the citivass will be conducted
a'ld the contest 'Jeei
Garfleld en Hancock.
General ( jarfif-ld made a concise
criticism of Hancock's notorious New
Orleans letter , wherein the latter took
the ground that the United States had
ii' i authority to enforce the recon
struction las , in a speech in the
houao on Jamury 17th , 1868. Gen.
Garfield then said :
Wi < BOO him issuing a general order ,
iu which bo declares that the civil
should not give way before the mili
tary. Wn hoar him declaring that he
finds nothing in the laws of Louisiana
and Texas to warrant his interference
in the civil administration of those
states. It is not for him to siy which
should be first , the civil or the mili
tary , in that rebel community. It is
not for him to search the defunct laws
of Louisiana and Texas for a guide to
his conduct. It is for him to execute
the laws which he was sent there to
administer. It is for him to aid in
building up civil goiiernmenta rather
than preparing himself to be the pres
idential candidate of that party which
gave him no sympathy when he was
gallantly fighting the battles of the
h a thief. It neglect hygianic laws ,
an'1 cntiils losj on its victims.

SANTA GLAUS FOUND
Greatest .Discovery of tne Age.
Wonucrf ul disco i eries in the nrrrld have been made
Among other things where Santa Claua stayed.
Children oft aak It he makes goods or not.
If really he lives In n mountain of snow.
Lust year au excursion sailed clear to the Pole
And suddenly dropped into hat eeemedlikr thole
Whore wonder of wonders they found anew land ,
iVhile fairy-like beinga appeared on each hand.
There were mountains like ours , with more
beautiful green ,
And far brvh'er skies than e\er were seen.
Birds with the hues of a rainbow were found ,
While flowers of exqultlte fragrance were grow
Not long were they left to wonder in doubr ,
A being soon cimo the/ had heard mnch about ,
Twas Santa Glaus' self and this they all say ,
Helsoked like the picture r tsee ever'diy
lie drove up a learu hat looked very queer ,
Twa a team f grasshoppers instead of reindeer ,
[ Jo rode hi a shell instead of a leigh.
But be took them on to\rd and drove them
Ho showed them all over big wonderful realm ,
And factories making goods for women and men.
Furriers nere working on h/itn great and email.
To Dunce's the ? said they were sending them all.
Kris K ingle , the Glo\e Maker , told them at once ,
AH our Gloves we are sending to Bunce ,
Santa showed them sujpenderg and many things
Saying I alse took these to f ii nd Bunco's store.
Santa Glaus then whispered a secret he'd tell ,
As In Omaha every one knew.Bunce well ,
He therefore should send his goods to his care ,
Snowing his friends will get their full share.
Now remember je dwellers in Omaha town ,
AU who want presents ts Tunce's go round ,
for shirts , collars , or glovea great and small ,
end your sister or aunt one and all.
