by congress to prohibit discrimination
and extortion by railway corporations.
It is to bo hoped the petition may have
the desired efloot. For the moat part
these appeals are pigucm-liolcd and ig
nored.
EVKUV western representative and
senator will have an opportunity dur
ing the present session of coiiprosa to
place their views regarding the trans
portation question on public record.
Thu urgent and popular demand for
'legislation on this subject is bound to
nuke itself felt , and mammoth
petitions from ten different states
.have .already been presented anking
.for the regulation of railroad trann-
porlntion by national authority.

AUGUST ARNDT.
August Amdt nought to recover
homestead from which he wns ejected
by that great land-grabber , the Union
Pacific. Ho was at once spotted ns a
dangerous desperado. In these days
the most dangerous desperadoes are
Russians , so August A null was billed
a Russian. Every Hnssmii must of
course bo a nihilist , su Amdt was
booked us a nihilist. Jlut August
A null is by birth a Gorman nnd there
fore ho was also classed as a socialist ,
In his hopeless struggle with a giant
corporation Arndt wns badly jammed.
After being pillaged by the railroad
ho was fleeced by the lawyer * , lleing
a man with strong passions ho
became very loud with threats iigaiiifct
law otllcora whom ho conceived to bo
in conspiracy with the corporation
that had ojcotcd him from his home
stead , Ho wns thereupon charged
with contempt of court and jailed to
await the notion of the United States
grand jury. Thai body hns now
presented a bill of indictment against
him for attempting to intimidate a
judge and impede the coutse of jus
tice.
tice.This
This somewhat unusual procedure
is said to have been institi'tcd in or
der to hold Arndt in custody while
the grand jury is investigating the
Wntflon It. Smith murder , of which
he is suspected.
August Arndt m.iy bu guilty of this
fellonioiiH crime , but up to this hour
ho is only legally held to answer for a
misdemeanor.
August Arndt may bu the most dan
gerous of criminals , but as long n.s ho
in merely suspected he is entitled to
the same treatment which thu laws
of the country accord to any
other man accused , of a mi
nor inisiluiiiojuiur.But / even before -
fore the grand jury had taken no
tion on the charge of threateniii' ' the
court otlioura lie WAS Unottled by the
refusal to allow repot tora of the prwts
to sou hiiii. Thin sinackn altogether
too much of Russian tyranny to unit
our conception of American justice.
Arndt is penniless and friundlcHH and
for that rcinon wo foul impelled to de
mand for him such treatment as would
have been accorded to any man ac
cused of crime who linn plenty of
money and scores of friends. Wo
ask that he should be dealt with , with
at least as much consideration as the
notorious man-burner , Olive , received
who roasted his victims nftjr they
wore shot.
BURLINGTON AND OMAtfA.
In order to appreciate the merits of
the "direct pressure" part of the
Omaha water works it may bo well to
compare them with the "Holly swin
dle" over in liurlincton , which has
been in operation several years. * *
There wore nine one-inch streams
thrown from n licit-lit above the level
of the river of from 100 to 132 feet
on throe dificront hillx of thu city.
Twelve streams from one inch to one
and one-half inches in diameter wore
thrown at the same time on the low
ground toTm average height of 151
foot above the river. * * * Un
der --0 pounds pressure to the square
inch a three-inch scream of water was
thrown from a point 1)0 ) foot above the
river to a height of 284J. feet. This
was for display. When General Grant
returned fron : California the victims
of the "Holly swindle" in Burlington
allowed the veteran to see the water
works throw a three-inch stream from
the sa'mo level 11071 feet high.

I'artii's who witnessed one of these
dress parade displays at Burlington ,
do not consider the feat as at all
marvellous.
Thu mant'gors had constructed a
main specially ( or this test within
hrue blocks of their engine house and
early on the same level with their
itiinpi. Every other connection with
' , her mains win shut oil' Four
lydrants were connected in-
o one stream , and this
itream was forced through
tandpino especially made for thu dis-
ilny. Tim standpipu was fastened to
platform erected for the exhibition

laim that u vertical throe-inch
itrtmm , 'JO'.l ' feut high , was thrown.

owing to the circuitous route from th

Burlington und Omuha water worki
Burlington has only 12 miles of we
tor mains , while Omaha has Itl mile ;
Burlington depends entirely upon d
reel pressure , and n bioken main m
at any moment cut oil' her water au ]

pressure in an extraordinary emergen
cy. Our reservoirs will nlFord the
most ample lire protection , and what
is fully M important , our system can
bo extended and enlarged just ns rap
idly as lltogrowth of Omaha demands
it. Tt is not to be expected , however ,
that tlio jobbers and water sharks ,
who were BO signally defeated in their
attempt to foist Holly's works upon
us , will over acknowledge that Omaha
has escaped a calamity in refusing to
follow Burlington.
OTHER LANDS THAN OURS
England begins to ro.ilizu that the
United Stales has a foreign policy in
regard to the republics which adjoin
our country on the American conti
nent. The publication of Secretary
Uliiino's dispatch to Minister Lowell
regarding the Clnyton-Hulwor treaty ,
in exciting a good deal of comment
from the London press , In this con
nection Mr. Blainc assorts the Mon
roe doctrine with eloquent emphasis ,
and instructs Minister Lowell that any
canal constructed across the isthmus
will bo considered ni part of the Amer
ican coast line , to bo treated nnc pro *
tcctcd as such by the United States
government. On the part of the
president he askstmch modifications of
the Clay ton-Hulwor treaty as will give
to our government nit unchallenged
protectorate over thu isthmus route.
Mr. Blaine very clearly points out
that since the treaty was signed , thu
remarkable developments of the Uni
ted States on the Pacific coast has
changed the conditions. Tt is abso
lutely insisted that , the highway to the
I'.icific sltnll not bu under the control
of another power , which at some fu-
turu day may menace the peace of our
nation.
Tin ; death roll at the Vienna the
atre , as already announced , foots up
fully one thousand lives. The funer
al of the victims w.in the moat impos
ing spectacle over witnessed in
Vienna. Tun thousand devout Cath
olics attended the solemn requiem
mass for the souh of the departed.
After the requiem at St. Stephen's
Cathedral the funeral ceremonies be

which was illuminated by several hun
dred candlcH. There wuru seventy

tified remains being numbered , while
the others boru the names of the oc
cupants. All around wore plants and
wreaths , provided by mourners and
the various Yicnne.su corporations.
Many mourner * wcru present. The
funeral procession included all the
member * of the common council ,
many members of the Riochsrath ,
representatives of the various thea
ters and members of the aristocracy.
After tliu service , Burgomaster New-
aid delivered an address , in which ho
spoke of the priof of "Vienna , of Aus

Au unsolved problem in tlio Britiah

Tlio three ofllcers who have been

allowing thu late cxar of Russia to

A case of slavery in its most dis-
listing form 1ms come to light in Con-
tnntinoplo. A traveling showman ,
illing himself Hodjali lien Moham
med , bought some time ago in London
wolvo street Arabs , paying from § 8 tu
12 apiece , cash down , to their miscr-
1)1 o parents , and baa since traveled
itb them over a good part of Europe ,
iving sierobatie performances. The
oupo went by the high-sounding
iiino of the "Original and Genuine
'roupo ' of Ucni-OTiig-xong Bedouin
Wabs. " The infants-for they ranged
1 age front three to six years wore
ftcn soundly whipped , and all theme
! mo were half starved. A traveling
iliahman happened to hoar of the
ase , and through the ellbrts of the
onsul general and the interposition of
iord Granville , the children
ere released and sent home. Chari-
ably disposed people have undertaken
euro for nnd educate them , for it
van not thought beat to appeal to
leir unnatural parents. The boys
vero found in a room about fifteen
eet square , in which the only furniture
as a few beixes. They were dirty ,
arcfootud , and clothed only'in baggy
'urkish trousers nnd shirts many
is too big. They had never tasted
ea , coffee or any other luxury , and
voro usually fed from a tin pot on
omo unpalatable stow. They were
over allowed any amusements be-
end the acrobatrc tricks which they
ad to practice aa professionals , and
rero never allowed to go alone out-
ide of their lodging room. There are
ell grounded suspicions that other
ejually sad cases of cruelty and neg-
ect are to be found in various parts
f'Europe. *
The German army ia furnished

Very satisfactory progress in the
management of the French poatotlico
department lias in late years been
made. Two years ago the net prulita-

Thu tunnel under the English chan

On thu French side a distance of 1,800
noterd and on the English one of
1,000 , or , ' ) ,400 motors in all , whiuh
ure something more than one-tenth
of the entire distance to be placed. It
is believea that if the required $100-
*
000,000 can bo raised , the work might )
bo finished in a comparatively short
time. Quo estimate is that the htnnol
could bo made fit far traflio in four
years.
The prospective niarriaqe of thu
Duku of Albany with a German prin
ces brings up the question of the an
nual allowance that will be asked
from parliament. Thu London Truth ,
asks why an English princv cannel
