NKHRASKX has only three floats to

CONTINUKD depressions in the stock
market , heavy falls in valuoa and
hundreds of ruined apcculators , ought
to teach amateurs the folly of playing
against gimblors who hare the ad
vantage of loaded dice and an un
limited bank account.
Or course the fruit crop is ruined.
It has boon ruined every year after
the late spring frosts and remains
ruined until heavy oupplios from
ground bout limbs take the starch out

IT looks as if the south is about to

VALENTINE'S pensioners are making
much ado about this eminent fitatos-
man's great speech on the Chinese
bill , which in all probability was ono
of the many upcechos that are prepar
ed to order and filed for record with
out over being delivered. But if
Valentino woa the real author of that
great npooch , instead of Fred Nye or
Homo other committee clerk , tbero ia
nothing in it that would arouse the
average Nebraskan to a pitch of en
thusiasm. In the first place Nebraska
in not overrun with moon-oyodlopora ,
and the Chinese question does not
fguro-prominontly in our politics. In.
the next place , Valentino cannot
hoodwink workingmen or farmers by
bnnooimb spoochoa on the Chinese bill
when they know him to bo all wrong
on every vital issue which concerns
Tun citizens of Polk county are to
bo congratulated on the advent of
the Farmers' Advocate , published at
Osooola aud edited by Miss Ada M.
Bittonbondor. Judging from the first
number the Advocate has the true
ring of the fearless champion of the
interests of the producers und a
vigorous opponent o. grouping monop
olies. * Such papers are needed in
every section of the state , and nowhere -
where ia there a moro promising field
than in Polk county. No where in this
Ute has the lotiFproes moro shame
fully prostituted its power and nought
to keep their patrons in ignorance
bout the most vital issues of the day.
It U high time that at least ono paper
. . . , ln Osooola ia disposed to voice the
'wiahes ' and eodtimont of tno people ,
instead of merely playing eocoiid
fiddle to the Omaha corporation or
companion have 'received a se
vere blow in the decision of a Now

Infallible. The plaintilf shuts up his
houao and with hia family nUirtod for
Europe , where ho romniuod three
months. Upon bia return ho was
amazed to discover that his gas motor
had continued business at the old
stand with its accustomed regularity ,
and hod registered 30,000 foot of gas
aa consumed during hia absence , al
though not A single burner had been of
lighted for three months. Against of
hia protest [ the gas company pro-
entod a blank with the ] figures aa
registered by the faithlnl gu meter
neatly calculated , showing the amount
consumed as stated. The victim ap
pealed to the courts , and the bench
decided that the power of n g&s com

At his own request Prince Alcxan
dor GorlsclmkofT has boon relieved
from the onerous duties of minister o !
foreign Affairs for llusnia ftftcrn diplo
matio career of sixty years and having
for twenty-six years hold the impor
taut post which ho has just loft to his
BUccosBor. GortechakblT comes of an
ancient and distinguished llussian
f.imily which traces its descent to
Kurik , the founder of the Russian
monarchy , who lived in the nintl
contury. Prince I'otcr , ono of thi
most illuilrioui of his ancestor * , wn
a miccosaful Ku lr n general nt thi
beginning of thn seventeenth century
Ilis older brotheM , rrinccs Pcler am
Mikail , wcro the leading generals o
the Russian army in the Crimean war
the former commanded the Itft wing
of the Russian army at the battle o
Alma , while the latter conducted the
defense of Sevastopol. Both nro now
dead. Prince Alexander , thoiryoung
oat and still surviving brother , was
the diplomatist of the family. Horn
in 1798 , ho was secretary of the Rus
sian embassy in London in 1824. lie
served in the Russian legation at Florence
once , Vienna and Stuttgart from 183 (
to 1854. In the latter year ho ropro
tented Russia at the Vienna confer
oncos. In 1850 ho became Russian min
ister of foreign affairs and has hole
that office continuously for moro than
a quarter of a contury. In 1870 ho
issued his circular upsetting the treaty
of 1857 and loadingto the London
conference of 1871. Ho was the
guiding spirit of Russian policy during
the critical period of 1877-79 , and
was ono of the most prominent mem *
bors of the Berlin congress in 1878.
The long career of Gortflchakoff illus
trates the value to continental qov *
ornmonts of those representatives
who give their lives and their nccu
mulated experience to diplomatic du
tios. His retirement io private life is
on impoatant event in the history of
European diplomacy. Through long
service Gortsclmkuff attained the
reputation of being ono of the great
est and most skillful of European
statesmen. Unequal to Bismarck in
force of will , he was more than his
mastnr in strategy. Intimately con
nected with every important event in
the continental hibtory of Iho present
century , his withdrawal to private life
retires ono of the most brilliant stars
in the firmament of great national
loaders. There is no man except the
adviser of Emperor Willhrn
whoso , passing away suggests
awch a retrospect as Prince
QortsohakofT. Ho was a lad of nine
in the royal school of Zalo Zarkoo
when Alexander I. mot Napoleon at
Erfuth ) ho was a young cadet of fif
teen when Alexander , flying north
ward to the Nova , loft hii former
friend Napoleon among the burning
wrocliH of Moscow ; ho was a BUBCGBB-
ful young diplomat when the Bourbons
bens wore driven finally and forever
from Franco. From the crushing of
Hungary to the rapture of pcaco in
1878 , his handicraft was felt in every
great European event. Napoleon III.
esteemed him greater and moro subtle
than Talleyrand a oomplimont'which
so won the old man that in 1870 ho
did hia boat for the fallen dynasty and
its restoration to Franco.
ParnfiU'o roloiBo , over which bo -
blazed throughout Ireland was ,
it Booms only temporary. A week
was the limit placed upon hie visit
to Paris to attend the funeral of a
relative on his parole of honor , after
which he will return and bu incarce
rated in Kilmrinhaiu
jail with a
score of other members of the league.
Of ono thlntt Mr , Gladstone and his
colleagues must bo thoroughly con-
rinood : that the arrest and imprison
ment of hnd league leaders and the
forced suspension of its public meet
ings has not desroyod the efficiency
of that organization or diminished
Iho popularity of its creed. The
league is working as vigorously as
over , and moro dangerously , because
compelled to work out i f sight and
without the advice of those who have
heretofore been ito trusted guides.
The patianco and prudence which Par-
neil and his companions mi ht have
BucoiMsfully urged have boon thrown
to the winds by what is naturally regarded
garded as their martyrdom , and it is
hardly ta bo oxpactod that from the
culls of the martyr * will come moderate
ate oonnsol , The government would
have sho.rn moro wisdom , certainly
moro knowledge of Irish character
and history , had it lot the laud league
talk freely , and contented itself with
the prompt punishment of violations
law. The so-called "suppression"
the le ugo is a farce , and Parnell
and his companions are ten-fold more
potent for mischief in jail than they
could have been out of It ,
The mosque of St. Sophia , in Don-
stantlnoplo , the largest and most mag-
niQoont of the three hundred mosques
that city , in showing alarming
symptoms of decay , and great conster
nation has boon created by the report
made by the architect appointed to
examine into the condition of St.
Sophia. There is a tradition among
he Turks that the fall of this mosque Of
will herald the dismemberment of the
empire. It was begun In 533 and re tx
quired the labor of 10,000 workmen , re
Involving a cost of f 6,000,000. An tier
sarthqnako injured th building or
ihortly altar iU completion. In 1453 orit (
Iho church was converted into
motqno , and in 1847-49 a complete
restoration was effected by Abdul
Medjid. The work ) however , has not
stood the test of time , and the arch !
tset reports that the grand dome ,
which is 120 feet in diameter and 250
feet high , is likely to fall at any mo
ment. The mosque will , therefore ,
bs closed to the public until its thor
ough renovation , which will be under
taken at once , shall ha vobocn effected.
Among the many relics preserved in
the St. Sophia is the carpet upon
which Mohammed was wont to pray ,
Another of the relics preserved Is the
cradle of our Savior , which , according
to tradition , was brought from Beth'
lohom , together with a sort of basin
in which his mother washed him.
The Briluh navy estimates for 1885 ?
83 amount to $52,419,505 , , ngainst
$54,727,505 last yoar. The only in-
oreaso of any importance is § 352,600 ,
for machinery nnd ships by contract.
The force of Bailers and marines has
been decreased and the pay of the
non-commissioned officers and privates
of the latter has bocn increased.
There la also n decrease in the number
of officers amongst engineers and an
increase of salary to those who are
high on the list and occupy important
positions. Fifteen now ironclads are
to bo commenced nnd finished , eight
corvettes , forty sloops atid small ves
sels and twenty-one torpedo boats.
Altogether it is proposed to build 20-
142 tons ( weight of hull ) ships. Last
year the quantity wai 18,889 and the
year before 10,821 tons. The board
of admiralty is to have a now member
a civilian added to it , and C. Ren-
del , the omlnont engineer and ship
builder , has boon chosen , and will receive
coivo a salary of $10,000 a year. The
oailor officers will thus bo somewhat
chocked and the navy , it is believed ,
will bo materially bonofittcd by the
experience of a professional man frnm
ciril life.
Gladstone uttered his famous
> hra o that the government could not
discuss homo rule for Ireland as a
distinct 'proposition until the adyo-
cates of it formulated some tangible
measure ho buildod wiser than his
lis party know. The Scots are the
first to seize thislibaral sentiment as it
lies. They have , through the voices
of a respectable annual convention of
he Caledonian Burghs , adopted a
resolution calling upon parliament for
ho right of local self-government in
all things concerning their own lands ,
> orsonalitios and the like. The out-
ino presented to parliament is tub-
tantially the same conditions as exist
ntwixt the metropolis and Canada
are that the metropolitan parliament
hall have a veto upon certain classes
of legislation. This sum of substantial
elf -gov ernmont concoodod Scotland
cannot bo denied Ireland , and the
prsblom now resolving in butchery
and blood will como to a peaceful ond.

significant of the continued maintenance
anco of peaceful relations between
[ iussia and Germany. Da Giors is i
strong friend of thd Gorman alliance ,
and ia oven by descent German. He
s intimate with Bismarck and has
atoly received a good deal of criticism
rom the yonng Russian organs. If ho
succeeds to the authority as well as
the franchises of Gortschakoff , Russia
