THE GOVERNMENT DIREC
TORS.
The farce of appointing three gov
ernment directors of the Union Pa
cific railroad has been again perpe
trated , and Ocorgo K. Spencer , of
Alabama , Isaac IJ , Bromley , of Connecticut -
necticut and Watson Parrish of No-
brasku , have boon selected as the
lucky junkeUers. Mr. Bromley un
til recently was connected with the
Now York Tribune , which it the
staunchcst eastern ndvocato of the
monopolies. Thcru if no doubt that
ho will bo satisfactory to his employ
ers. Mr. Pflrrish is a resident of
Burt county in this ntato and poo-
scsacB the advantage of n smaller
uppotito than the Rev. 0. W. Frost ,
whom ho supplants. On this account
the expenses of thn annual trip over
the road , so far no the commissary de
partment is conccrnad , ia likely to bo
materially reduced.
George E , Spencer is the worst ap
pointment in the outfit , Carl Schurz
{ ivcs him and the board of which he
B a member the following handsome
endorsement in the Evening Post :
"Mr. Spencer was olcctcd a senator
'rnm Alabama in the good old carpet-
jag times , and it may bo said that ho
represented the most obnoxious typo
oi that sort of statesmanship which
.hen flourished in the south , and that
; here was no redeeming feature about
nim. Since ho loft then , senate ho has
) con long struggling to got 'recogni-
.ion * again , but. vainly until now.
The place to which ho has boon ap
pointed is indeed not a very impostant
one. The government directors of the
Union Pacific railroad have never suc
ceeded in exerting any influence upon
the management of that enterprise ,
nor in learning inoro about its
affairs than the real managers
thought it harmless to lot them
know. And then every summer they
make a pleasant "inspection" trip
over the road ia a nice palace car ,
well equipped with the good things of
this world , and finally they draw up a
report , the principal feature of which
IB that the Union Pacific railroad h
one of the grandest enterpriser ! in bin-
Lory , an estimable benefit to mankind ,
anil , "wo are happy to say , " in excel
lent condition. Thosu duties , it is
true , Mr. Spencer may perform as
well as anybody else , although wo
should think his presence on the com
mission would not bo pleasant to liia
colleagues. But if the "recognition"
of such a politician as Mr. Spencer by
.ho national administration is intend
ed to give him a now lift in the repub
lican party of Alabama , it will provo
a disastrous investment. "
Mr. Sclmr7.'fl remarks about the
government directors would receive
bettor attention if their author had
not belied his present opinions by hia
actions when a member of President
Hayes' cabinet. As secretary of the
interior Mr. Schurz's attention was
drawn to the farce of the annual
junkotting lour in the U. P. special
cac during which track , stations equip
ment and management wore viewed
through the bottom of champagne
qlassea and colored by the fragrant
cigars provided by the railroad com
pany. Tliis ia no reason to believe
that Secretary Schurss'a appointments
wore any more useful to the country
than the present directory will be.
The entire board was created to white'
wash gross mismanagement and ex
tortion ou the part of the railroad
and they have never failed
to follow out the wishes of thu com
pany. Thuro is not an instance on
record when the government directors
have called the attention of the ccro-
tary of the interior to a single abuse
under which the people are suffering ,
or to any one ot the numerous failures
of the Union Pacific to comply with
their contract obligations to the gov
ernment. It has boon the policy of
the Union Pacific to prevent any such
report by ( securing the nomination of
men who would servo their purpose.
Mr. Schurz in his official capacity had
the power to place in the oflico of gov
ernment director competent and hon
est ofliaials who could not bo influenc
ed by the corporations. Having no-
torously failed to do so criticism of past
oifneccs on the part of the directors
comes with very bad grace from his
lips.
A VIUIOUH contemporary takes the
floor to remark that "Mr. Brooks , the
editor of the Omaha JfcjjuMiam , is
about to temporarily absent himself
from the employ of the Union Pacific
for the purpose of a European trip.
Wo extend the road our regrets that it
is oven for a uhort time to part with
the services of so clover a gentleman
and so faithful a servant , " The beauty
of the trip lies in the fact that the
government is to pay all expenses ,
and the Republican pay roll to reap all
the benefit. Subsidized journalism is
never at a loss for a way out of the
woods.
THK Princess Louise is out of luck
every time she strikes Canadian soil ,
On her first visit a sleigh ride accident
gave her not only immediate pain , but
a lasting trouble that caused her ab-
sconce from the dominion , as her hus
band publicly explained , during the
greater part of last year. Now aho
has ventured back , and on Thursday
Lord Lome's yacht met with an acci
dent at Quebec , the Princo'.s Louise ,
who was aboard , barely escaping a
knock on the head with a flagstaff.
No wonder Louise prefers illustrating
children's books and meditating in
the quiet of Windsor over her curate
lover from whom nho separated by the
stern laws of royal etiquette.
.THE STEERAGE
The Guonthor steerage bill , which
passed the liouao some weeks ago un
der suspension of the rules , secured a
passage in the senate on Monday , and
will become a law. It Is the most
important measure affecting immigra
tion introduced into congress for
innny years. A synopsis of the bill
telegraphed from Washington shows
that it makes every provision which
sclcnco can suggest or philanthropy
doviao lor the safety , health and
morality of the immigrant. The nioet
stringent provisions are made for
space , ventilation , food , medical at
tendance , ' and tor the separation of
the sexes. Every passenger on the
first deck must have 120 cubic fcot of
space , and in sailing vessels 110 cubic
fuot , and it in forbidden to carry passengers -
songors below the second deck. The
penalty for violation of this provision
is $ GO for ovcry passenger carried in
excess of these requirements as to
space , and possible imprisonment of
six months. It is not permitted to
have more than two tiers of berths in
any compartment , and the berths
are to bo separated by par
titions. Much has been said
about the immoralities practiced
on these emigrant ships , and particu
larly about the outrages committed on
unmarried females. The treasury de
partment once sent special agents to
Europe , including two women detec
tives , to return in the steerage , and
their reports of the indignities offered
to female immigrants show a shock
ing condition of immorality. Mr.
Conger , who had charge of the bill ,
and who inado the only speech upon
it , said that , If necessary , ho would
procure thoao reports , which told the
story of immorality in the steerage.
Thas bill , to correct this evil , makes
the "Unmar
following provinion :
ried fomalu passengers shall bo berthed
in a compartment separated from the
apace occupied by other passengers by
a substantial and woll-couslructod
bulkhead , the opening or communica
tion from which to an adjoining pas
senger-space shall bo so constructed
that it can bo closed and secured.
J/Vimilion , however , shall not bo sepa
rated except with their consent. Each
berth shall bo numbered oorially on
the outside berth-board according to
the number of passengers that may
lawfully occupy the berth , und the
berths occupied by such passengers
shall not bo removed or taken down
until they have been inspected by a
customs officer as hereinafter provided.
Gor any violation of either of the pro
visions of this section the master of
the vessel ohall bo liable to a fine of
$50 for each passenger carried or
brought on the vessel. The remain
ing provisions as to other subjects are
equally stringent.
THE Lincoln Journal which is
always thrown into violent spasms
whenever anti-monopoly is mention
ed , is all torn up over the advice
given to the Farmers Alliance by its
officers relative to the policy to bo
pursued in the coining state canvass.
That ndvico in ahort was to place alliance
ance- tickets in the field wherever the
organization was strong enough to
elect its candidates , and in other cases
to control the conventions of the regu
lar parties and secure- candidates in
full accord with the anti-monopoly
centlmonts of the alliance. The Jour
nal denies that the Chicago conven
tion settled the principle that
improper nominations cannot bo
forced down the throats of republicans
simply because they were made in
party convention , and denounces any
delegate as dishonest who will take
part in the deliberations of a regular
party organization and then bolt the
ticket put into nomination , If the
withdrawal of Roscoe Conkling's resolution
elution after the magnificent speech of
James A. Garfield meant anything , it
meant the defeat of a proposition that
delegates in a convention must bo
bound by the majority of the
convention , no matter what
the result of the delibera
tions of that majority. The
Lincoln Journal knows this as well as
the score of leading journals whjoh
commented on the fact the morning
after that eventful Wednesday in the
Exposition building. But granting
that the reverse is the case the Farm-
or'a Alliance will do well to settle the
precedent for Nebraska. If corrupt
ing influences again control our con
ventions , if the corporations once
more resume their old tactics of pack
ing delegations with their tools and
bribing delegates with offers of posi
tion and patronage , and if this policy
is again successful in securing a ticket
made up of railroad henchmen and
corporation cappers the producers of
this state , whatever the precedent
and however loud the crack of the
party lash will refuse to barter away
their manhood for the sake of a mis
taken party allegiance. And the
editor of the Lincoln Journal and
other cranks whoso occupation is to
turn monopoly organs might just as
well put it In their pipes and begin to
smoke ,
OALIKOUNU is an instance of the
disadvantages of an unequal distribu
tion of wealth. In San Francisco ,
where mercantile and industrial de
pression is the moil marked , seventy
firms , persons and corporations return
a personal propel ty list of over ere
hundred thousand dollars each. At
the head of the Hat stands Moses Hop
kins , executor , with ? 908,545. La-
land Stanford is raied at $749,2-15 ;
Mary S. P. Hopkins , at $027,700 :
Murphy , Grant Co. , at $580,910 ,
and Charles Crocker at $54r ,475.

The Prebideut'B Widow.
Cleveland Leader.
Mrs. Garficld is still in Cleveland
occupying the homo of James Mason ,
Esq. She will not g" to Mentor until
the last of the mouth , when Harry
and James return from college. Mrs.
Oarfield has made no change in the
Mason homestead , with the exception
of the garret , which has been given up
to a collection of objecta , which ,
when taken alone , are touching and
appropriate , but when taken collec
tively from a perfect museum. On
each oftho many trunks is mounted a
bust of Gen. Garfield , and the walls
are hung with his portruita , good , bad ,
and indifferent. The oil painting , the
crayon , and photograph are all there ,
while the resolutions of respect and
condolence would lorm a day'u read
ing. AIL kinds or trifles that have
been associated with Gen. Garfield or
his work have been sent the family.
It is from no fooling of disrespect , or
from a failure to appreciate them on
the part of Mrs. Garfield , that these
articles are not in a more fitting place ,
but from a lack of room. In course of
time many of thorn will doubtless bo
given to public institutions , whore
they will serve as a constant reminder
of the noble man whom they commem
orate.
Publlo "Wortts und Jobbery ,
fit. Louli Olobo-Dcmocrat.
Two years from hence is now stated
to bo the earliest date by which the
great East river bridge will bo com-
ploted. This will make it four or
five ( years later than was expected
when it was begun. The amount of
money that will have been expended
in the structure by the time it is
finished will bo expanded to about
double the original estimate. All this
moans bad management and a lack of
frankness with the public on tno part
of those who have in charge the work
of construction. It is hinted that
there has been largo jobbery in it ,
but no such charges have been sub
stantiated. It is a fact , however ,
that a trustee has just resigned from
the general board , haying failed , after
tepoatod efforts , to gain that acquain-
runco with the affairs of the under
taking that ho ought to have boon
possessed with.
It appears as if It wore impossible
for a work of public utility , Involving
great expense , to bo carried forward
without being unpleasantly connected
with corruption , or at least mystery
that means about the same thing. It
is natural enough that there should be
those who Honder that our govern
ments , national , state and municipal ,
are not proldbited front entering upon
enterprises of construction , and ex-
perieuco surprise that society u not
overwhelmed with its own wickedness ,
when they realize the means by
which corporations and others influ
ence legislatures. In one sense the
Union Pacific railroad in a monument
of corruption , but the country is
nevertheless much bettor off from the
fact that it was built as early as it
was. Perhaps it is a good moral illus
tration of how the corruption often
works. The road wo have performing
its valuable service , while those legis
lators who profited unlawfully by it
have long been politically wrecked.
The city of Washington was generally -
ally supposed to have received its
priiaont elegant streets at the hands of
a _ corrupt ring. However it may
have boon about the ring , the blessings
of good streets are vouchsafed to the
capital. The ring has disappeared ,
but the streets remain , figuratively
speaking , a joy forever. There is no
doubt about tin now Now York state
house at Albany having been the vehicle
hiclo of publec theft , but there is the
state house nevertheless , the finest In
the Union , and useful for centuries to
come. The Tweed ring were about
the only parties that ventured upon
virtually clear steals without anything
to show for them. There nro some
cities where gas companies and street
railroads can not get any privileges at
all without buying thorn of legislators ,
yet wo should bo badly off without the
conveniences furnished by those cor
porations. Wo have given away mil
lions of acres of public domain , per
haps twice as much as thcro was any
necessity for , but the works they nn-
cou raged remain to us sources of per
ennial prosperity.
So it seems that wo may flourish in
opito of the robbery attached to cho
public works. So long as the general
morality of the people is ready lo
spring up and pounce upon rascality
whenever it is revealed , corruption
can not got the upper hand of us. It
is the corruption that is sanctioned by
public opinion that destroys nations
the corruption that can not ba thrown
off. But it h not purposed hero to
defend corruption of any kind. It is
simply intended to advance the phi
losophical reflection that wo wo not
necessarily ruined because wo can not
keep all the weeds out of the public
garden. All that wo can expect , per
haps , is to keep them down within
reasonable limits , and bo in readiness
to strike at thorn when they show
their heads.
FAST STEAMING.
To Europe In Loss Than Seven Days.
New York Tribune.
At a reception given on board of
the Guion steamship Alaska , by Oapt.
George S. Murray on the day before
she last sailed from this port , the cap
tain , in response to a remark , said :
"Yes , the Alaska has made the fastest
time on record , but she will beat her
record this trip. " The captain's
prophecy has proved true , and the trip
from Sandy Hook to Qaeonstown was
made in less than seven days , the
only instance on record. She sailed
from hero on May 30 , clearing Sandy
Hook bar at C :28 : p.m. and arriving
at Queenstown at 8 p. in. on Tues
day. Deducting four hours and
twenty-two minutes for difference of
time , she made the trip in six days ,
22 hours and 10 minutes. This in
cludes the time lost in dincharcing the
pilot after clearing Sandy Hook. In
1818 it was considered remarkable
that nn ocean steamship should make
the passage in lesa than sixteen days.
Year after year , however , the improvements
provoments in the general constrruc
tion of vessels , the line lines given to
the hulls , and the increase of steam-
engine power , have given greater
speed , and the voyages havo' been
shortened by marked steps.
The rivalry which exists between
the various passenger lines would in
part account for this progression , but
it would not account entirely for the
shortening of the .time required to
make the passage to less than one-
half. Rivalry has given the impetus
to a wonderful advancement in naval
architecture and marino-ongino build
ing. Ocean vessels not only noiv make
the satno distance in less than hulf the
time , but with the consumption of less
than half the fuel burned twenty-five
years ago. When , in 18G6 , a steam
ship made the transatlantic trip in a
little less than eleven days , it was con
sidered a phenomenal epoch in thohis-
tory of ocean travel. Pour years later
there was a marked rivalry between
the White Star , Canard and In man
lines , r > nd the time consumed in mak
ing the trip from Now York to Queens-
town was cut down to ten and ten and
a half days. The Baltic of the White
Star Line , in 1871 made the passage
from Queonstown to Now York in 8
days , 19 hours and 52 minutes , and
back to Queenstown in 8 days , 15
hours and 3 minutes. The steamers
of this line made a surprising record
that year , the average time of twenty-
four trips from Now York to Queens
town being only 8 duys , 15 hours and
3 minutes. The Adriatic made the
best trip in 7 days , 23 hours and
17 minutes from Queonstown to
Now York. The Baltic of the same
line , mudo the passage from Queens-
town to Now York in 7 days , 30hours
and nine minute * . The City of Ber
lin , of the Inman Line , cut down this
record in October , 1875 , making the
trip in 7 days , 15 hours and 48 min
utes , atid the City of Richmond of the
same line , made the passage from
Quoonstpwn to Now York In 8 days
and 2 minutes , which time is remarka
ble , when it Is remembered that the
eastward passage is made moro quickly
than the westward , owing to the perceptible -
ceptiblo influence of the Gulf stream.
This record was beaten , however , in
1870 , by both the Germanic and Brit-
tanic , oi the White Star Line , the passage -
ago to Queonstown of the former beIng -
Ing made in 7 days , 15 hours and 17
minutes , and of the latter in 7 days ,
12 hours and 41 minutes. The sumo
vessels made the passage from Queens
town to Now York in 1877 , the Ger
manic in 7 days , 11 hours , and
37 minutes , and the Britannic in 7
days , 10 hours , and 53 minutes.
Those records were not beaten until
1880 , when the Arizona , of the Guion
line , began to achieve remarkable
speed. Two voyages to Queonstown
during her first year of running wore
made in 7 days , 15 hours and 08 min
utes , and in 7 days , 10 hours and 58
minutes. The succeeding year she
made the remarkable time of 7 days , 7
hours and 48 minulfes from New York
to Queonstown. Thirteen other trips
that year wore made in less than eight
days , Next came the Gallia , of the
Cunard line. In September last she
made the trip from Quoenstown to
New York in 8 days , 1 hour and 58
minutes , and returned in 7 days , 18
hours and 52 minutes. The City of
Homo , of the Inman line , has not
proved to bo so fast as was antici
pated , although she has made good
speed. The City of Chester , of the
same line , is equally as fast as the
City of Rome. The Servia , of the
Cunard line , is another of the fast
ocean vessel , having made the trip to
Quoenstown in 7 days , 7 hours and 30
minutes. The Alaska has made fast
time ever since she began to run , and
on March 28 finished a trip to Queens-
town in 7 days , G hours and 43 min
utes. Her next trip from Queens-
town , on April 9 , for Now York , was
made in 7 days , 8 hours and 44 min
utes Those wore the latest trips
eastward and westward ) n record.
Her last trip previous to the one just
finished , to Queonstown , was made in
7 days and 20 minutes.
