[ Omaha Itepublican.
Whenever this paper has in the ux-
erciso of the mint sacred function of
jniirnnlism ni posed dishonest or in
competent public nion in whom thu
railway monopolies liavo an active
ally and tool , the Omaha
has always como to the front as their
defender and champion. In almost
every instance the answer to every
charge no matter how well sustained
hns been "it ma villainousslander. "
Our recent review of Valentino' *
past career was called out by an arti
cle from his homo organ which sought
to create the impression that Tim BKK
was actuated by mercenary motivui or
disappointed ambition in representing
Valentino as a ma-i of small calibre
and . , a tool of the railway loonopollun
Such exposures always appear untimely -
timely to the organists of the Union
Pacific , but wo have no apology to
make for keeping the people of N -
brankn informed about the trno char
acter of political loaders iap Ully
when they occupy high positioni of
honor nnd trust. Wo are lot in
the leant surprised at the hran at
tempt ot The Republican to make
Valentino appear as a victim of a foul
slander and model of public virtu * .
Every intelligent man in Nebraska
knows thut the mun who edit * the
Rojnibliian is hired to whitewash
every rogue in the service nf the mo
nopolies nnd black wash and hound
down nny man that darcsto raieoliis
voice in protest against thr * political
dominatiMi of giant corporations.
Now let us see whether Mr. Valon-
tine wan nlandcrod.
TUB HKK charged that Valentino'sL'
knowledge of law was acquired in the
West Point land oflico and was confined - ' .
fined mainly to practioo in bar room *
with incidental efforts as co lection ,
agent , in which capacity Valentino
failed HOmotnncs to report to his
clients collections made for them. ,
The fact that Valentino spent a great
art of his time in bar rooms and billiard - :
liard Imlls nnd does HO upend his time
this day c.mnot bo successfully a
gainsaid. In support of thu charge
.hat his conduct n collection agent
H dishonest wo cited the fact that he . .
collected moneys for the McCormicli
. . . . ,
reaper company which ho reported . .
uncollectablo and only paid over
after the fraud WHH discovered and .
Jiteata were madu to disbar him.
HKK charged that Valentino pro- ,

aid of the Union Pacific thtouch

It is very plain that the Liberal op

not propose | to submit in silence to
any attempt i at forcing them into ap
proval of Hismnrck's social and economical

is the ablest shaker upon economical
questions | on the Liberal stdo of the

tactics to win support from the ojipo-

. in favor of the incorporation of IJain-
\ > arg. This city has no far been a
fr port in the Gernmn cuatom ays-
tern. . Riimarck's npcoch culminated
in n appeal to the patriotic feeling of
, . _ . , , .
th German people , whom he wants
to keep in mind that all his plans and
projects have but one aim ; to consid
er the unity of Germany. This is a
favorite ( urn of ipeoch with the
Chancellor when lie is hard pressed
for an agument to put bin opponents
at a disadvantage , and he has fro *
qnently used it with effect. Tlio patriotic
rioti nature of his political aims in
this respect ia scarcely doubted by
anybody. Hut the question is whether - '
er the measures ho insists upon *
are . necessary for the consolidation
of Gorman unity , and oven
whether their adoption would not bo
calculated rather to weaken than to
strengthen the popular desire for that
unity by making it less desirable nnd
, .
attractive. . The argument against
him on this point is
. . . very strong nnd
will tax his ingenuity to the * utmost.n

With regard to the incorporation of
Hamburg in the Xollverein , however ,
ho . is not likely to have much trouble. .
Tlio measure was. at firnt strongly op- '
posed . . bj the merchants of Hamburg.
Hut it has been modified so ns to leave
part of the free port intact as to"u
commercial . . . facilities , and a great many
citizens of the old ITnnsa-tovvn have
meanwhile come to the conclusion
that the change as now agreed upon
may . bo rather advantngoous as to of
their , interests. The Reichstag is now al
asked to make an appropriation of
40,000,000 marks to carry out the

English economists are beginning to
cheer up since the latest trade returns
show that the '
country's traffic is no
longi decreasing. It is increasing
this autumn , both in the direction of
exports nnd imports. Judging from
October , in fact , 1881 promises to boone
ot ( the b st business years that
Great Britain has ever had. The im for
ports of thn month amounted to over
JL'31,000,000 ' , or to fully 14 per cent ,
more than in the same month last
year , , and to only . ' { per cent , less than are

there is a steady progress in thu recov
