TUB following bill lias been intro
duced in the senate by Senutar Mc
Donald , of Indiana :
Be it enacted , etc. , That from and
after the paseage of this net , any ttato
or territory of the United States may
provide for including in the valnttion
of the personal property of the owner
or holder of legal tender notes of the
i United States , denominated law
ful money , owned or held by any
pereon or corporation , in assessing
t he taxes imposed by the authority of
f-uch etato or territory , nnd msy im
pose n tax thereon ; but the tax im
posed on any such legal-lender
treasury notes shall not be greater
( than is assessed or imposed up2n the
* i gold or silver ciin of the Unitedlstates
MI the hands of individual citizens or
residents of such state or territory.
This is just and equitable. Ilioro
is no reason why holders of legal ten
der greenbacks should bo exempted
from taxation any more than owners
of national bank .notes or specie. The
whole system of exemption from tax
ation arising from the operation of
oar financial system , is made in the
interests of the wealthy and against
h pockets of the poorer classes.
Tuo argument that the lagal ten
ders are a loan by the people
ta the ( government , and aa such
i snuum inu * / _ _ „ . . , _ _ , i _ _ fjij , , ,
1 ejal tenders have become a part of
the circulating medium of the coun
try , and are preforrad to gold andtil-
vor for purposes of trade and com.-
meroe. The fact that they tvoro orig-
nully isiucd nu a loan has no b r.wng
upon tfio question. In possassion of
individuals they represent -ncalfh
which receives the protection cf tire
mtional , state and municipal govern
ment , aud as cuoh should bear their
proportion of the harden of taxation.
In the case of the government bonds
the case Is eomowhat different.
The fact that such interest
boarinf ; loans are non-tuxablo
assists in floating them at a low rate of
intorst and at a premium which ac
crues largely to the interest of the
government and hence to that of the
people. But even the advisibility of
issuing uou-tsxable government bonds
is open to serious discustiou and finds
many intelligent opponents. It is a
question whether the opportunity
thus given to wealth
to shirk the burdens of taxation
does not work more detriment to the
interests of the state aud municipali
ties than it accrues to the advantage
of the nation at large. In the case of
the legaltendcra there seems absolute
ly no valid reason for their non-liabil
ity to taxation. It neither enhance s
their value as R circulating medium or
puts a single dollar in the publto treas
ury , while it robs the national , state
and municipal government of taxes
which are their rightful dueand throws
still heavier hardens on the already
overburdened poor.
STREET KAIlAVAYS AND THE
STEEETS.
Th& street car companies through
out the country seem to surpasj the
railroads in their cheeky assumption
of the right of ownership to the prop
erty over which they pass. St. Louis
is about to deal with ono of these cor
porations whosa charter has expired ,
and the Globe-Dctnocict reads lLo
common council a lecture on the doty
which they owe to the people in deal
ing with the question. It says :
The duty of the ounldptl au m-
bly in the so is not merely to secure
the best teriui It c&n get for tny new
franchise that is granted , but at tbe
satno time to auert in the most potl
tive manner the right of ownership
in the city of the street * . That the

THE NEW COURT HOUSE.
The new Douglas county court
house which is to be erected -within
the next two years , ought to be a
building that jvill outlast several gen
erations. Twenty-five years hence
Om&ba will have a population not less
than Ecventy-five thousand. Fifty
yovs bcnca she will ba a city as pop
ulous and wealthy as Cleveland , Buf
falo or Louisville now arc.
This ia no extravagant estimate.
Twenty-five years ago Buffalo had a
population of 50,000,01eveland 40,000
andLouisvillalcas than 30,000. In
tbe eamo period Omaha has grown
rom nothing to S2,000. She only
needs to double her' population every
twenty five years to become Cfty
years hence what Buffalo , Cleveland
and Louisville are now.
If the court heuao about to bo
erected is to accommodate the want
of a population of 100,000 , the struc
ture should bo built of material tha
will outlive the present generation o
man and compare favorably vitn thi
public buildings of tha future.
What the dimensions of such a
building should bo , of what matcria
it is to be constructed , must neceuari
ly bo determined by competent archi
tecls , having in view all the time ;
reasonable limit on the amount at th
disposal of the commissioner * . Oa
local contemporaries are e.igiijed in
senseless squabble over the queEtio
whether the building is to bo built c
brick or cut stone , or brick with ston
trimmings. The Herald intimate
that there is a cut stone rin
that -wants to force the con
struction of the court house
ot this most expensive and least fire
proof material. There is no doubt
that cut stone is the most expensive
just as granite pavements are the
most expensive. The durability of
cat stone , over brick , especially the
kind of brick wo get in Omaha at this
day has long ago been established.
In Europe where they have the ex
perience of twenty centuries ,
the best buildings , public and pri
vate , are constructed of cut
stone. Some of them have withstood
the fires and weather of one thousand
years. There ia no doubt that the
stone they were built of was bolter
than the average stone wo get iu these
parls , especially Junction City stone
which was used in trimmiug the Grand
Central. The only building that stood
the test of the melting heat of the Chi-
cigo fito is the postoffico building
which is constructed of cut stone.
That building stands there to-day as
solid as it oror was , and had it not
been too contracted in dimensions
for n city of a half a million people it
would to-day bo used aa n custom
house and postoffico. On the other
hand some of the most costly build
ings in the country h&vo of late been
constructed of brick , such aa the
Wcstirn Union building and tbe Tri
bune office in Uew York , but Sew
" > - * s-vj nt Omaha brick bv a
long ways.
The proposition to reneer the
now court houeo with Plftto
river stone doea not strike ua
very favorably. Wo always beliero in
solid things ; solid etouo or solid brick.
But an wo have said ni the outset , this
must ba left to experts. What the
people of Omaha and Douglas county
want is a court house , fire
proof throughout , substantial in
ovciy part , conEtructcd with
some taste. A building that will pro
tect our records , rvccomodate our officers
cors and courts , aud nt the same time
bo an ornament to the city , not only
to-day , but fifty years honce.
No portion of tlio country is so vi
tally interested in a thorough and effi
cient manngcrueut of the national ge
ologic surveys as the West. For ten
years it has been overrun by a set of
tramps under the leadership of F. T.
Hayden , ono of the meet guantio
scientific frauds who over palmed
hiinEelf off on a community as an or
iginal explorer , and whcsa only repu
tation has been gained through the
exertions of the few really able mem
bers of his corps , whose published
discoveries have redounded to his
credit alone.
The geographical sur
vey of Wyoming was one of the
most stupendous frauds ever per
petrated by a pretended set of
scientists. Distances are inaccurate ,
locations often varying forty miles
from their rightful situations and the
maps aa a whole woefully unreliable
and incorrect. The triangulatlon
portion of the work was for the most
part wholly fictitious. The only portion
tion of Hayden's survey of Wyoming
which had any claim to scientific
accuracy was the geological soilion
which was performed by snch author
ities as Professors Leidy , Cope and
Marsh. Three other surveys did in
their contracted sphere much better
than Hayden's. We allude to the
surveys of Clarence King , Major
Powell and Lieutenant Wheeler.
Scientific mon generally approved
heartily of the action of
congreas when it consolidtted
thass bodlw , placed the whole
geologic surveys of the west under the
