A PUBLIC NEED-
Omaha needs n market house ; she
neoth n good system of pavomonla and
a proper extension of her sewerage
system to meet the sanitary require
ments of a grout and growing city.
Hut moro than nil thosn , she needs
united action of her citizens in inau
gurating and maturing plans neces
sary for her growth and development.
Omaha wants moro public spirit.
She wants less factionalism , fewer
cliques , whoso only aim is self inter
est , and more men who nro willing to
think and act for the best interests of
the entire community.
No one is disposed to deny that our
city is growing rapidly and steadily.
Its development in every line of
trade and industry within the pant
live years has boon nothing if not
marvellous. Homo and foreign capi
tal has been expended in planting in
vestments which are already giving
profitable returns , and which at the
name time are distributing thousands
of dollars among 'hundreds of homes
in our midst. Our business houses
have bean compoMcd to increase their
accommodations in order to deal with
the natural growth of trade. Brick ,
stone and iron nre replacing the
wooden structures on our streets.
Water works have at last boon secured -
cured for the protection of our dwell
ings and the convenience of our citi
zens. Now lines of railroads are
pointing in our direction whoso coin
ing will open up additional fields for
trade to our merchants. There is
every promise of a now era of pros
perity , of commercial growth and in
dustrial activity , to which the years
that are past will afford no parallel.
Hut Omaha's growth has been large
ly gained in the face of the opposi
tion of her citi/.ona. The interests of
the city at largo have been given into
the hands qf a few public spirited
and enterprising residents while a
largo portion of our wealthy and well-
to-do citizens have been content to
stand aside and reap the benefits of
the enemy and labor of others. Some
have not boon content with this
course. A persistent fight has been
waged by a numbar ot fossilized citi
zens against every scheme for public
improvement which necessitated the
expenditure of money or the loaning
of the puDlic credit on behalf of the
city , while the very same parties have
been the first to udvocato the bonding
of the city to corporations and the
donation of its rights and franchises
to the monopolioa.
It is his high time that our citizens
should awaken to the possibilities
which ho within their grasp. What
the future will be , how great the de
velopment of our natural resources ,
and how extensive the aid which ether
sections of the country will give to
the increase of ourmunicipalgrowth
all these matters lie in our own hands
and must bo decided within a few
years to como. Concert of action on
the part of our citizens , universal and
'outspoken interest in municipal aiVUira
by our tax payers , a far sighted public
policy which ia willing to invest a
thousand dollars in order to reap a re
turn of a hundred thousand , tlm sup
pression of immediate self interest foi
the general benefit and a determina
tion that wlmtuver is done shall be
done for the future ns well ns for the
present with such sentiments ani
mating the citizens of Omalm thu
growtli of our city in assured , and its
porman'cncy as the great commercial
metropolis of the trans-Missouri conn-
try will soon become a certainty.

ANOTHER I < 1ND GRAB
Mr. Uelford'u ' bill to lease arid ant
desert lands lying went of the lOOtl
meridian is n hugo land grnbbinf
Bchomo hidden behind the mask of i
pretended public benefit. Accordiii }
to its proviflions the secretary of tin
interior is authorized to luano to an
citizen of the United States a tract eland
land not exceeding 5,000 acres withii
tho'dcsort or and region of the publii
domain , located in the state of Cole
nido , for not moro tlmn ton years , n
a. rental per annum of four cents po
aero payable quarterly in advance
under such regulations ns thu sucrc
tary may prescribe ; a failure o n tin
part of the lessee to inako such pny
incut , to operate as a forfeiture of tip
loaso. Upon the expiration of tin
luaso the secretary of thu interior i
uthomcd to Bull such tract in quan
Hies not exceeding 040 acres , and fo
price not exceeding § 1.25 per acre

crm of five years , provided the lease
as reclaimed the land and placci
liurcon improvements ; ho shall b
nlitlod to renewal Jor the aubscquon
cried or periods of not moro thai
on years each - the land so leased nee
o embrace timber or mineral lands.
Judge .Belford supports his bill 01
ho ground that under its provision

ocluimylnt is now a desert want
nd the government will secure a rev
nuo from n quarter from which i
ow draws nothing. lie points to th
'act that the lauds at present are oc
upiod for cattle and sheep raising with
ut the sanction of law and states tha
ho main object of his bill is to lugal
: o this occupation and to protect th
ights of thosu thua engaged from on
roachmont and irtcrfurence.
Tin' lir.K calls upon the Nobrask
ulcgation in Washington to oppos
.his . measure Its object is a lam
monopoly of the largest sizo. Tli
ortain result of its passage would bi
.ho locking up of millions of acres o
ho public domain in the hands of i
ow capitalists at n merely nominu
ontrtl to tha government. Our graz
ig lands up to the present time havi
juon free to all. The smallest in
eaters in the cattle and slice ]
raising business have beei
con equally us welcome to their ua
as the largest cattle kings. The at
oncu of any monopoly of the gren
nnges has stimulated the busince
until the value of cuttle exported hn
ncroasud from § 505,719 in 1872 t
SM,30-1,10 ; ! in 1881 and the vuluo cheep
hoop from $7 , r 92 to § 702,032. Thi
great growth has only been rundoru
possible by thu free use of the unoc
cupiud public domain which the go\
rnmunt 1ms iill'orded to all comer :
There are no good reasons why th
policy should bo changed now.
The measure introduced by Juclg
Bulford and reported favorably by th
lommittue on public lands is first c
all an attempt to monopolize the ca !
lo and sheep ranges and prevent an
'urther extension of the grazing bus
less among smaller investors. It i
another step in the line of monopol
which is already the curse of thn mien
ion and which has extended to over
branch of trade , commerce and tram
portntion. In thu second place it is
langurous menace to the agriculturn
nturests of the region covered by il
provisions. The furms "desert laiide

THK city council has boon asked
vacate suvontoon foot on each side
the upper part of Farnam Btroot , I
ginning at the city limits and oxtun
ing a mtlu and a half in an eastei
direction. This would leuvo a wid
of sixty-six foot , which the ownorj
adjacent property atlirm is sullinie
for all purposes of traffic to and frc
thu city. TIIK BEE is opposed to t
proposed change. It sees no go
reason why the struct should not 1
loft at its present width. Building is
rapidly reaching along upper Farnam
street and plans arc being laid for
making every portion of the thorough
fare available for business purposes ,
Farnam is the only street in the city
which is laid out at a uniform width
of one hundred foot for a distance of
three miles from its origin. It has
been the intention of the county com-
tniflsioncrs as far ns possible to bring
to it nil the country trallic and to this
end they have been improving the
roadways leading to the city through
upper Farnnm street. On this account
they nro very seriously opposed to any
narrowing of the thoroughfare and the
grounds of their opposition arn plainly
for the best interests , not only of the
immediate property owners on the
street , but of Omaha itself. The city
council should sit down on the peti
tion with n loud thud.
The Georgia Independents. '
Clat eland Liadcr ,
The stixtu election in Georgia does
not take place until October , but the
opening speech of thu campaign
against the bourbon democracy was
made at Augusta by Hon. W. H. Ful
ton on Monday night last. Mr. Ful
ton was n whig as long as that party
existed , and then a Unionist. Ue
was oppojed to the rebellion , but uf-
tor its suppression acted with the
democratic party. Ho was elected to
congress as an independent democrat
in 1874 , re-olectcd as an out-nnd out
independent in 187 < > and 1878 , and
was defeated in 1880 by a democratic
candidate , while running on an
Independent ticket. An audience of
over five thousand people gathered to
hear him on Monday , and applauded
his speech , which laid emphasis on the
necessity of overthrowing the Bour
bon ring in Georgia. lie said that
Indopondontism meant that the people -
plo should bo the masters and not the
slaves of the politicians. Ho de
nounced the poll tax law and the
bourbon frauds on the ballot box , nnd
advocated froeo schools and a tnrilF to
protect our homo industries. * The
platform thus outlined is ono which
will grow rapidly in favor in Georgia ,
the most prosperous and intelligent
state in the south , and wo have strong
hopes that that state mav yet he re
deemed from Bourbon rule. As he
closed his speech and stepped from
the platform , hundreds of those pres
ent stopped up and congratulated him
upon his effort. There is little doubt
buUthat his speech will have a won-
durful eili'ct in Georgia , and will add
hundreds of strong und powerful men
to the fast tilting ranks of the inde
pendents. Ho has received invita
tions to Columbus , Mncon and At
Rural and Municipal Population.
St. Louis Republican.
A census bulletin gives the total
population of the 100 largest cities in
the United States having over 20,000
inhabitants at 9,098,000 , which' ie
nearly one-fifth the whole population
of the country. The total increase oi
population in tho.country in the last
decade was 12,000,000 , and 2.390.00C
of this was in the 100 cities. The
figures are pointed at as an indication
of an excessive crowding of people
into cities from the rural districts.
But it Is doubtful if there is any niort
such crowding going on in this country
than elsewhere. No doubt there
are thousands of persons in every
largo American city who contribute
nothing to the aggregate of useful
1 humon clTort , who do nothing in the
way of earning an honest living , and
nre mere drones in the social hive ,
Of the 9,000,000 , persons constitutinc
the population of these 100 cities ,
1,000,000 could -be spared , and the
cities bo better oil' without them.
But it is not clear that the rural dLs
tricta would be bettor oil * with them
as the majority of them would bo at
f averse to earning a fair living then
us they are in the cities. Botl
the rural regions and the citio :
are able to absorb a largo nuiu
bur of steady , reliable and willing
workers , and to pay good wages t (
f them and this will bo the case foi
many years to come. But the taski

which is not to bu overlooked. Ou
aggregate of farm products is con
stantly und largely increasing , a fuo
which shows that the labor supply 01
farms is not materially impaired b ;
the crowding of population into cities
and the fact that our farmers are abl
not only to furnish an abundant sup
ply of ohoap food at homo , but to sent
an enormous surplus abroad and undersell

farmers in their own markets , show
with what effect machinery is not

It is a sad fact that American liu-
iiorists , na n chss , rcaomblo prcco-
iouB childrun. Let them do ono
hing at which the world laughs , nnd
liey will repent the performance over
ixgnin with the persistence of n mad
miikerim ; to plunso which makes
ustifmblo homicide n relaxntiou na
veil ns n duty. Stnnloy Huntloy's
'Spoopoiidyko ' Tapers" wore good at
Irat , but anybody could write
hem now. The humor is strictly
mnchino work , but "Mr. Spoopon-
lyko" grinds nwny nt. his comparison
nill with a fresh und breezy convic-
ion that his fun deus not pall upon
epetition. Mark Twain'a jpkea nro
ho result of a plnin , chemical for-
nuln ; given a man n chair , n dark
light and n tumble , nnd n grammar
chool boy could construct n witticism
which Mr. Clemens would swear wns
us own. Bill Nye has his little ro-
icipt for humor , just ns George W.
? ock has his , nnd Peck oould write
Syo'a stuff just ns Nye
ould write Eugene Field's , or
Aleck Swnrt write Josh Billings's.
What wo complain of is that there ia
no spontaneity nboul recent humorous
writers. These amusing gentlemen
would as soon think of tampering with
ho Lord's prayer na altering the form
undo or expression of their writ.
? hey seem to think that when they
mvo n good thini ; they should stick to
t. A patented style of humor may ,
as the country grows older , pass ns an
loirloom in certain families , and it
would bo no surprise to UB , were wo
o revisit the palo glimpses of the
noon five centuries hence , to discover
descendant of Stanley Huntlcy
writing that nil "Mrs. Spoopendyke"
iccded to bo Eve was to _ add n few
ears to her ngo.
