The Indian outbreak in Arizona
and Now Mexico gains in aoriousnons
with each succeeding report. If the
dispatches from the scat of war are
bo bo credited , there nro prospects of
a general Apncho uprising. It must
not bo forgotten , however , that every
Indian trouble is generally grossly ex
aggerated and that the fears of the
sottiors are apt to magnify the num
bers engaged far beyond their actual
proportions. Public fooling is pretty
well worked up in Arizona , ae the
message sent by the people of Tucson
to President Arthur shows. Sumo
excitement is perhaps pardonable
when it is considered that there are in
Arizona four Indian agencies nt which
are 18,000 Indiana , and an equal
number of agencies exist in Now
Mexico with 27OCO Indians , besides
several roving bands attached to no
The present trouble had its origin
as far back as the transferring of the
Chilicaua Indians to the San Carlos
agency in Arizona , and the removal of
the Warm Springs Indians from Now
MoxlcA. It was intensified by the
hanging some Weeks ago of throe In
dian scouts , who deserted from Carr
In the Ciblquo campaign. From the
beat information obtainable from
official sources , it does not seem that
more than 150 bucks are di
rectly concerned in the present
outbreak. Still the fact that
from 4,000 to 6,000 Indians nro likely
to bo affected unless prompt measures
are taken to chock the outbreak makes
the situation serious. Five hundred
cavalry , under Col , Forsytho , are in
pursuit , pnd all needed reinforcements
will bo forthcoming. The ardors from
General Sheridan to General Crook ,
to place the Fourth infantry and Third
cavalry under waiting orders , may or
may not have reference to the trouble
n Arizona. A change of station for
; heso regiments has boon under con
templation for some time , and the
transfer of the troops is probably in
the line of a policy decided upon before
the outbreak of hostilities. Should both
rcgiinontsbosont to the Indian country
from 1,100 to 1,200 soldiers will bo
added to the force now operating un
der Col. Forsytho.
There , is every reason to believe that
the trouble in Arizona will bo sup-
pro&sod an promptly as is possible.
But it must not be lost eight of that
fighting the Apaches in thn rocky
canyons of that country is by no
means as easy work as carrying on a
campaign on the northern plains. No
[ nuians fight so well from cover as the
Apaches , and conducting a war against
, ho tribe is much like hunting jack
rabbits ono at a time and each on
the jump. No ono appreciates the
fact hotter than General George
Orodko , who , with several of his pres
ent stall , bad a very lively if not a
successful experience with the Apaches
several'years ago.
ALTJIOUOIT the routine business of
congress is further advanced than
s usual at this stage of the session ,
.ho belief is expressed by many mom-
jors of both houses that final adjourn
ment is not likely to talco place earlier
than the middle of July or the first of
August. Congressmen feel that the
majority must make some record on
questions of public policy if they hope
to carry the next houeo for the repub
lican party. Bo far nothing has been
accomplished excepting the passage of
several ot the appropriation bills. The
Chinofo bill drafted in accordance
with the views of thu Pacific coast has
failed to pass the White house and
the effect upon republican voters has
boon so unfavorable that it
is doubtful whether the passage
of thn present measure will act as an
antidote. . Prohibitory legislation in
Ohio is likely to lose several congress
ional districts in that state to the re
publicans and the disaffection in the
parly in Now York and Pennsylvania
is alarming. At present there is an
entire almonce of issues upon which to
basu a vigorous canvass. The reduc
tion of taxation BO earnestly demand-
ol at thu opening of the session not
only mining unaccomnHBhud but thu
senate ha squarely dodged thu issue
by iti advocacy and pasungo ot a bill
for a tariff co iiumaion , The question
of reorganizing the national bunko
has not been mot. It is true an , anti-
polygamy measure , has been passed ,
but Anti-polygamy is U scarcely an
issue upon1 which much political
capital can be made for either of the
parties. Administration reform , the
questDn ! of'mouopoly , the issue be
tween cspital and labor , the principle
'arid policy of taxation , subjects'which
sooner or later must form the' basis
for honest discussion and honest dif ,
foronco of opinion between parties ,
have been thus far skillfully evaded
by congress. It is no wonder , then ,
that republican congressmen feel that
they rcquiro something beside the
more passage ' of the' appropriation
bills for a record on which to go be
fore the country and ask a support for
their party and themselves as candi
dates for ro-olection.
Q'liu citizens of Omaha will not regret
to lnarn that , beginning with to-day ,
the management of Ilunscom Park is
to change hands , Thu filthy condi
tion of that people's pleasure grounds
the present spring has been a dUgraco
to the cily , It 1ms been used for
vcrylhing from A cow pasture to a
garbage heap. The janitor's house
has boon filthy beyond dcicription.
Every washing day the fountains in
front of the main entrance have been
filled with A chaste and care
fully assorted collection of tubs
while the walks adjoining have been
decorated with a selection of house
hold rubbish largo enough to stock n
well furnished junk shop. This is
aside from any remarks on the general -
oral condition of the park itself which
has been too wretched tor criticism.
The roads have been forlornly re
paired , the grass more than half the
time unkcpt and the rubbish from a
summer pic io season has been al
lowed to accumulate with no attempt
at removal , The attention of the city
council which is vested with the
supervision of the park is called to
the necessity of more active measures
to keep it in a presentable condition.
It will bo used moro than over during
the coming Bumtnor , owing to the
completion of the St. Mary's avenue
car lino. If any pleasure at all is
to bo derived from its use by our
citizens , there must bo a radical
change in the manner in which it is
TUB great strike of mechanics and
laborers at Toronto has ended , and the
men will resume work to-day. The
conflict between capital and labor was
settled , as all such conflicts should bo
by an agreement on both sides to
submit to arbitration. A joint
agreement was entered into that will
carry into effect the suggestions made
by TH UKE during the re
cent labor troubles in Omaha.
Under this arrangement the joint com
mittee of the men and employers are
to select a chairman who shall preside
at a meeting to bo hold in the month
of January of each year to decide the
rate of wages for the following twelve
months ; changes , if any , not to take
place before the 1st of May of each
Omaha contractors and capitalists
should profit by this example. The Ca
nadians can got all the military protec
tion they need but during the recent
strike they had the good sense to ap
point a conference committee which
mot an equal number of men ap
pointed to represent the strikers and
after a mutunl conference they have
reached an amicable understanding
which in the future will save both em
ployers and employ03 a great deal of
trouble and expense.
IT IB a beautiful political circus in
Pennsylvania. The independents ,
headed by Ghaa. Wolfe , who received
DO,000 votes for state treasurer loot
fall against the regular republican
nominee , are preparing for battle ,
and have been joined by United
States Senator Mitchell , who declares
that plunder and patronage are the
only motives for the action of the
Oamorona , and openly allies himself
with the independents for the purpose
of securing nn honest state convention
add au untrainmolod expression of the
popular voice in the coming nomina
tions for stuto oflicors. At last ac
counts Don Cameron was undecided
whether to fight or compromise ,
Two fast freight lines have just boon
organized to carry through freights
between Chicago and Denver without
breaking bulk or transfer. This will
afford another source of revenue to
the inner cirolo of railroad magnates
that always exhibit wonderful energy
in such paying enterprises. This maybe
bo an exception , but pearly all the
fast freight lines in this country are
nothing raoro nor loss than schemes
to'put ' money into the pockets of rings
organized among the officers' of the
railroads under the pretense of special
accommodation to the public.
TUB coming year should see a hoary
increase in the number bf cattle and
hogs fed in Nebraska. The prices
now paid for beef and hogs will make
this iiidnstry exceedingly profitable ,
and from present Indications there
will be no lack of both grass and grain
for thu purpose pf feeding. Stock
railing will prove a , mine of wealth
this season , and our farmers will find
plenty ot use for their surplus crops
whioh will bring a much lower price
this fall than last.
DURING a recent trip of the editor
of TUB BH to Seward county ho was
more than over impressed with the
truth of ( ho oft quoted remark that

thrift everywhere displayed , no county -

urday on the New York Elevated

bloodthirsty nihilist , but it may turn
out to have boon some victim of Ele
vated railroad stock swindle.

This paper is not in the habit ol
boasting about its business affairs. As
the most widely circulated newspaper
west of the Mississippi , its command
ing position is recognized in this city
and state , whore its popularity ant
influence are best known. It is only
when attempts are made by designing
parties to create a false impression
abroad about the standing of Omaha
dailies that wo deem proper to expose
imposture and , challeigo comparison.
A statement was recently publishct
by the Omaha Iloptiblican concerning
its alleged increase of circulation in
which that paper boosted of having
overtaken TUK DKK both at homo ant
abroad. The evident object of this
brazen falsehood , which could deceive
nobody in Omaha , was to impose on
foreign advertisers. Because wo dit
not see fit to contradict ant
denounce the imposture promptly
some of our exchanges , notably
the Lincoln Journal , indulged in
comment about the recent decline
of TUK BBB , which they ascribed to
the course it had pursued during the
labor troubles. For the informa
tion of all concerned wo herewith sub
mit sworn statements of the circula
tion of TUB BBB before and since the
labor troubles , with a 'detailed exhibit
of city circulation during a period of
eighteen months. Wo also invite
attention to the sumrrary and chal
lenge that accompany this exhibit :

Thus it will bo soon that the general -
oral circulation of Tins BKB , which
aggregated 0,587 copies before the
labor troubles commenced , reached
0,659 copies when the trouble was
over , and has grown to 7,004 copies
during the four weeks that followed
the evacuation of Omaha by the
army. Right hero let us make known
a few established tacts !
1st. THK DAILY BKB has a larger
general circulation than the combined
circulation of all the other daily
papers published in Nebraska.
2. TUB BKB circulates fully throe
times as many Dailies in the city of
circulated by the
Omaha as are
Omaha- Herald and ' Republican
together ,
3. The Herald and Republican
together cannot show forty subscrib-
of Omaha that are not
era in the city
also subscribers of THE BKH , while
TUK-BEK has fully 2,300 , BubscriborB
in this city that are not reached , by
cither of these papers.
And notr wo extend an opportunity
to the manager of the Republican to

circulation of the Daily nnd Weekly
Republican as compared with the
above statements that THE BEK does
not circnlato six copies of its daily

every copy of The Daily Republican
circulated in this city during the same
period , and five copies of its daily anc
weekly for every single copy of The
Daily and Weekly Republican tint is

Now lot The Republican show up

Wo have now boon waiting ono
week for the acceptance of our propo
sition , but the only response The Republican
publican has made is that the business
manager of that concern can nol
spare the time to make the exhibit ol
circulation , which wo have challenged
him to produce. The Lincoln Jour
nal , since the above was published ,
very gracefully admits that TUB BBB
can sustain the claim that its rcula-
tion is much larger than that of its
Omaha contemporaries , but The Jour
nal discredits the claim that the cir
culation of TUB DAILT BBB is greater
than the aggregate circulation of all
the doilies in the state.
The latest reliable figures of the cir
culation of the dailies published in
Nebraska with very liberal estimates
that we know cannot bo contradicted
by sworn statement , is as follows :
