The subject of relief for Iho supreme
court of the United States is of such
Dressing importance that the next con-
; rcss cannot in justice to Iho country
and that body postpone its immediate
consideration. Aside from its numcr-
cal weakness , with one seat on tlio
jench vacant by death and another
tluougli the disability of Justice Hunt ,
the fact is becoming moro and more
apparent that as now constituted
the federal judiciary is utter-
y incapable of disposing of
ho cases which annually pour
before it. Within the last thirty ycnrs
lie volume of business in the supreme
court has increased fourfold , while its
capacity has remained unchanged. In
850 the number of now cases dock-
ted was less than one hundred. Now
lore than four hundred a year are
landed up from the lower courts for
djudicatioti. At the present season
lie number of cases set down for ar
gument will not fall short
f twelve hundred , while the
onrt is already three years bo-
lind with its docket , and is
onstantly losing ground. This otnto
f affairs is duo to a number of con-
pirlng causes. The growth of the
ountry , the extension of trade and
ommorco , the development of the
nining industry , Iho increase in the
ntont system and a great war with
10 numerous questions which have
esultcd from its conduct and conolu-
oii8 , all have ended in increasing

No sane person will deny the urgent
ocessity of some remedy for the
buses which now impede a speedy
djuJicttion of casoj in the supreme
ourt. The only question lias been
nd is as to the best moans of nccom-
lishing the desired end. Three
lans have boon proposed for roorgan-
zing our Biiprcino court. The first
ontemplatos an increase in the num-
> ur of supreme justices to twenty-one ,
id the separation of the court into
; wo or three divisions. The necoml
Ian proposes to add a number
i justices to Iho bench an
ready constituted without dividing
10 court , while the third would Cre
te an appellate court between that
ribunal and the lower federal courts.
> f the throe , the best authorities , la
uding fx-Justico Strong , consider
10 third the best. Judge Strong , in
recent interview on tlio subject , ox-
> roBsod the conviction that the best
Ian to afford the needed relief to the
ipromo court is to create an appellate
ribunal inferior to the supreme court ,
to proposes throe circuit judges in
ach of the nine circuits , and
econunonds in each circuit tin ap-
appellate court composed of the cir-
uit judges and the supreme court
ustico on circuit duty. This appel-
ate court would have final jurisdic-
ion of a lanu number of cnsos which
re now transferred to the docket of
lie Bupromo court , and would , in
udcjo Strong's opinion , "relievo the
upicmo court of at least half the
business that now presses upon it ,
without detracting at all from the
unctions for which it was created. "

ringing the changes upon the subjcci
of "long and short hauls. " One o !
: ho greatest defects of the Doano law ,
according to these subsidised judges ,
H tint it mukoa no discrimination be
tween the cost of service in the trans
portation of produce for different dis
tances. The credulity of the public ia
imposed upon by the barefaced asser
tion that the terminal charges urn !
expenses , the handling of the freight ,
switching of cars and other like work
which must bo done before the hau
commences and after it ends cost moro
to the railways than the actual hau
itself and are the same whether tin
haul bo ono of ton miles or 500 miles.
It is by such assertions , ' which ore
familiar to every reader of Nebraska
monopoly organs , that the Illinois
railroad commissioners have boun induced
ducod to make a now schedule o :
freight tariffs which greatly in
creases the maximum rates o
freights on produce transported
over the railroads on hauls of less
than 150 miles. This action of the
commissioners is generally denounce *
throughout the Btato. The Chicago
Tribune , which is always sound upoi
the railroad question , takes occasion
to expose the long and short hau
fallacy very completely in the follow
ing terms ;
Now , what is the fact as to this
cost of loading and unloading ? It
every case , where freight is shippot
by the car-load , the whole cost o
loading and unloading is pah
by the shipper and consignee
nnd the railroad company als
collects a charge for "switching" the
car , both at the place of shipment and
at the point ol dolivoryl Tlio cars
nro loaded nnd unloaded generally by ,
and always at the dost of , the owners
of the fre'Rht. ' When the car is
oaded at a lumber yard , or , coil yard ,
or cattle yard , or warehouse , or at any
ilaco other than the railroad frciuht
Icpot , the railroads compel the pay-
nrnt of the coat of switching , and at
the terminus the unloading is done at
ho expense of the consignee. It is
) iily when goods are shipped other
than by the car load that the loading
and unloading is done by the com-
) any. and in all such cases tlio cost of
ransporlation is largely in excess of
the rates prescribed by thecoinmiBsion-
ers for car lortds ! Those facts nro notorious
rious , and thneomtnisaionornbtit insult
mblic intolliir.cnco by holding out
ho prolonso that the cost of loading
and unloading freight to be shipped
yy the car-load forms any part of the
cost to bo paid for transportation. If
ho commissioners are not nw.iro that
these charges are paid by the shippers
and consignees , then their ignorance ,
vhich is possible , is disgraceful ; two
of thorn have boon drawing salaries
or several years , and ougjit in that
imo to have picked up some in forma-
ion. If they did know of those
lungs , them their increase of tlio rates
of transportation because of the cost
) f loading and unloading and twitch-
UK the cars , which is all paid by the
hippcrs and consignees , is nn nddi-
ional circumstance showing their con-
empt for the public interests and
heir slavish subserviency to the rail
ONK good result of the railroad
'war" ia the aggressive move of the
. 'onnsylvaniacompany in inaugurating
afasttriinbctwdon Now York and Chi
cago. This train will bo composed of hotel
earn and parlor and sleeping cars and
ono baggage cor. As on the Washing-
on line , an extra faro will bo charged.
The Traveler from Boston to Chicago
will pay $10 in addition to his trip
uro. Tin's includes sleeping accom
modations without transfer to Phila
delphia From New York , Phila-
adolphia , Baltimore and Washington
ho extra faro will bo $8 tj Chicago
and $4 to Pittsburg. No stops will
> o made for meals , but passengers
will bo served in the hotel cars. The
rain will leave Now York at 8 a. m. ,
Philadelphia at 10:15 : , and Baltimore
at 9:25. : It will reach Pittsburg at
7:41 : in the evening and Chicago at
9:40 : the next morning. From Now
fork to Pittsburg the whole time ,
ncluding stops , is 1'J hours and 5
minutes , and to Chicago 2G hours and
35 minutes. From Philadelphia to
Pittsburg the time is 9 hours and 55
nmutcs , and to Chicago 24 hours and
.5 minutes.
This move on the part of the Penn-
ylvania company will necessitate a
[ uickening of time by the other trunk
incs. At present the fastest train on
, ho Now Yirk Central and Lake Shore
rom Now York to Chicago takes just
hirty-four hours to complete the dis-
ance , or seven and a half hours longer
than by the now "Limited. " The
'astost ' time fromBaltimoro to Chicago
ay the Baltimore & Ohio is about
thirty-four hours and a half , as against
; wonty-fivo hours by the Ponnsylvn ,
nin. Such a difference in time cannot
je maintained without great damage
, o the passenger traffic of the compet-
ng roads , and a general quickening of
schedule time may therefore bo ex
pected on thu Erie , Now York Central
and Baltimore & Ohio roads.
The people of the west would wel
come any cause which would result in
.ho quickening of the time on roads
west of the Mississippi. The snail's
lace at which the trains on our rail
roads crawl is an outrage on the pub
ic. Why should travellers between
Chicago and Omaha bo forced to spend
twenty-two hours in traversing a distance -
tanco made in half the time on the
trunk lines cast ?
THK plaintiro wail of The Laramie
ttoomtrang over the scarcity of women
in the west receives strong backing
from the census reports , showing the
unequal distribution of population
throughout the country. In the loca
tion of the sexes nature soonis to have
laid aside her great law of compensa
tion and distributed her favors wjth a
very partial hand. Statistics show
that the marrying outlook for single
women in the east is decidedly dis
couraging , owing to the lack of a Bufli-
cionti number of husbands to gooround ,
All the New England States have a
large excess of females , Massachusetts
standing at the head with 00,000
overplus. No\v York has 71,000 moro
females than males , Now Jersey 12- ,
000 , Pennsylvania 10,000 , Maryland
about the same number , while the
most of the Southern States have en
tirely too many representatives of the
gentler sex. In the western states and
territories the excess of males is pro
portionately largo. Illinois has an
excess of 00,000 , Indiana 43,000 , Mich
igan 88,000 , Iowa 42,000 , Wisconsin
45,000 , Minnesota 58,000 , Colorado
44,000 , Nevada 22,000 , and Nebraska
40,000. Wyoming tarritory has 14-
000 men , and only 0,000 women ;
Idaho has 38,000 men , and only 10.00C
women ; Montana has 38,000 of the
former and only 10,000 of the latter ,
while the surplus of men in Arizona
amounts to 10,000. Missouri has
surplus of 80,000 males , while on the
Pacific coast California has 102,000 ,
Oregon 32,000 and Washington terri
tory 17,000. Taken altogether , there
are about ono million more men in the
United States than women.
SEORETAUY SHEKMAK can well afford
to snap his fingers at his accusers.
Tlio whole charge , as aptly comment
ed upon by the Cincinnati Commer
cial , is "that while ho was occupied
with great affairs Shcrmanizing our
finances that is to say , bringing
about resumption and the mignificont
prosperity which it implied , some of
SiU third-rate subordinates wore mis
appropriating small sums ortho con
tingent fund , nnd playing a potty
game of swindling under falsified ac
counts. There is nothing that touches
Sherman. The actual charge that
; ho stalwarts nuke against him is that
10 used his power to defeat the bit ;
loss job that came up in the shape of
.he third term. Ho could afford to
dead guilty to that. "
All account ! agree that the pro-
-ojod eastern extension of tljo Central
Pacific to the Missouri river haa tibcn
abandoned by the Iluntington party.
Tlio recent trip to the cast of the prea
deut of the Central Pacific was the
moans of harmonizing all disputes bo-
; weon that company and the Union
Pacific , and for the present , at least ,
all prospects of railroad competition
n this direction , have vanished. The
j , P. engineers have looked over the
route , however , and their reports will
) o filed for future reference.

Pierre , Dakota , westward , strike the
northern hills , and thence northwest
to a connection with the Northern
Pacific at or near Helena. The coun

now settling rapidly , and with facili
ties for travel and marketing will in

tion of this line , and the bridging of
the Missouri river at Nebraska City ,
the Wubash will secure a decided ad
vantage over the Iowa pool lines in
the matter of through freight for Chi-

The Republican valley division of
the B. & M. has been graded fifty
miles beyond Culbortson , and the iron

It is expected ono hundred miles of
track will bo laid by January 1. Two
construction trains are constantly em
ployed , and ono and a half to two
miles of trackspikod daily. The sandy
nature of the route will admit of unin

The NewEdltoi'of "Tbo Century. "
The life ot the now editor of The
Century Magazine ( Scribnor H Month
ly ) , Mr. Richard Watson Oildor , has
been an eventful ono , lie was born
in Bordontown , N. J. , in 1844. His
father , who was a Methodist preacher ,
like moat of that class was in moder
ate circumstances , and could give his
son but moderate educational advan
tages , but the boy was early drawn
toward * literature , and when only
twelve years old published an amateur
paper entitled The St. Thomas Regis
ter , on which ho did both the editori
al and mechanical work. When only
sixteen years old ho edited a campaign
paper in the interest of Boll
and Everett. The presidential
election bringing his engagement
to a close , ho went to Philadelphia
and studied law lor a time , but soon
returned to literature. In 1803 ho
enlisted in the First Philadelphia ar
tillery , and served through "tho emer
gency" campaign. In 1805 ho became
a reporter on 'Iho Newark Advertiser ,
and was rapidly advanced through the
grades of legislative * reporter and
local editor to the position of manag
ing editor. Ho remained with The
Advertiser for several years , nnd
after leaving it , with Mr. Newton
Crane , started a daily paper , the New
ark Morning Register. While editing
this paper ho also ( .ontributcd regu
larly to the editorial and other de
partments of Hours at Home , and it'
is said that ho would frequently work
all night on the Register , and then ,
after only a few hours of sloop , go to
New York antl perform his duties aa
editor of the magazine.
In 1870 , when Scribnor's monthly
was started , Hours at Homo was
merged into it , and Mr. Gilder upon
Dr. Holland's invitation , became its
assistant editor : In this position ho
has performed a threat variety of valu
able and important work , a few of
which were his charming essays ,
under the head of the "Old Cabinet. "
Ho _ is a poet of some dis
tinction , and has published two vol
umes of verse , < ho "Now Day" nnd
the "Pool and His Master. " Those
who are acquainted with Dr. Gilder
and his ability , say that the mantle of
Mr. Holland < : ould not have fallen on
shoulders moro worthy in every ro-
ipect to wear it.
