Northwestern Nebraska is boinjr very
rapidly settled up. The settler are nil
woll-to-do and intelligent ptroplo. The
growth and development of northoanlorn
Nebraska during the last two or three
years have boon wondovful , and it is fast
becoming ono of the richest agricultural
sections in this part of the west. The
trndooflhat part of Nebraska goes to
Sioux City , in Iowa , instead of to Omaha ,
where it properly belongs ; and if our
business men would make any effort to
capture it they would easily succeed.
Ono of the first things to do is to build a
railroad from Omaha to a point in Codnr
county on the Missouri river , opposite
Yankton , in Dakota. This road would
control the trade ] not only of northeast
ern Nebraska , but\nls.o of southwestern
Dakota , which is a wealthy and produc
tive agricultural region. Such a railroad
was recently contemplated by the Union
Pacific , and articles of incorporation were
filed. The name of the road , if wo remember -
member , was the Omaha & Northeastern
railway. It was proposed to have the
business mon of Omaha take an interest
in the road and the stock sub
scription books were opened
for subscribers , but nobody took any
stock , as our people believed that if the
road was worth building , the Union
Pacific ought to do it without asking any
assistance. Since that time the Union
Pacific has mot with competition and re
verses which have caused it to suffer
heavy losses. Consequently no stops
have boon taken towards building the
proposed road. Whether that line will
over bo built by the Union Pacific is a
mattorof considerable doubt. Had the
Union Pacific spent loss money in con
structing costly extensions for hundreds
of miles through almost uninhabited
and non-productive regions , and paid
moro attention to building up its local
, rado in Nebraska by constructing moro
branch lines , it would to-day have boon
many millions of dollars better off. Had
t followed the example of the Burling-
x > n , which has over a 1,000 miles of road
in the South Platte country , reaching
every important point In the south part
of the state and which settled up that
section by special inducements through
its immigration department the Union
Pacific could to-day have had equally as
rich a field in the northern part of the
stato. But it has neglected 1U oppor
tunities , which wo are afraid are lost to
it forovor. It has virtually done nothing
'or the northern half of Nebraska ,
Notwithstanding the failure of
the Union Pacific railroad to
mild its proposed line to Oodar county ,
) maha can yet have such a road. It
s an enterprise that can and ought to bo
carried out by homo capital , and wo have
no doubt that if the proper effort is
made by the right mon a railroad from
Omaha to a point opposite Yankton can
bo built within the next two years. This
Is a good subject for the Omaha board of
brado to discuss at its next mooting , and
f the board is what sach an organization
ought to bo in a prosperous city of over
50,000 people , it will devise ways and
moans for storting the enterprise at an
early day.
Sioux City of course is very happy
over the prospsrity of northeastern No-
> raska and southern Dakota , which
regions are tributary to that city , owing
o the fact that Omaha 1ms no direct rail
road connections with it. The Journal
of Sioux City , in a jubilant editorial , says :
"Tho kind of settlement that ii now so
apldly being made in northoastoru
Nebraska moans corn , cattle and hogs ,
and that moans wealth and substantial
.irospority almost from the start , and not-
iftor years of waiting and failure from
'also methods of farming , such as has boon
, ho experience of so many now countries.
And similar changes to those in this quar
ter of Nebraska are also transpiring in
southern Dakota. It has boon found
: hat there , aldo , and largo expanses
of unoccupied land which is rich
er and ) nil things counted , much
ihoanor than further to the westward
iloro , as in the contiguous section of No-
> rasku , the first hard struggle of sottlo-
nont has lonfj since boon niado , towns
) uilt up , with the school-house , the
church , and other improvements , already
established. And the very cream of
restorn immigration is being attracted
lither. It is the best possible omen for
.hoto great sections. With the prospect
of a bounteous crop for the present sea
son , and such accessions of ontorprisong
workers to reap it and to soouro h sure
footing thereby , the future is ono of
brightest promises of promise , too , of
almost equal significance to Sioux
City. Year by year the relations
of Sioux. City to the great
territory included in those sections of Ne
braska aud Dakota arc surely becoming
more intimate. As illustrated by the de
velopment of the railroad systems con
verging at Sioux City , and the improve
ment of the service thereon a process
now growing gradually forward , with no
ppssibilitv of relapse by the growth of
commercial and friendly intercourse , the
manifest destiny of Sioux City and this
empire at her doors is ono of the closest
mutual dependence and common interest.
The continued and continuous settlement
and development of this portion of the
northwest during the year 1884 promises ,
to bring most important and permtineilt
rosulU. "
TUB Episcopal council of the diocese < $ f
Nebraska will moot again 'in ' Omdha'on
the 25th of this month to vote for a suc
cessor to the late Bishop 'Clarksoii , Dr.
Worthiugton , of Detroit , having declined
the honor. In the balloting at the first
council mooting the second choice was
Rar. Dr. Thomas , of St. Paul , Minn. ,
who received naarlyas many votes as Dr.
Worthington. It is very likely that the
council will now , by a largo majority ,
tender the vacant bishopric to Dr. Thom
as. The St. Paul 'Pioneer Ttevt speaks
of the coming Bishop aa follows :
Those who are familiar with the work
of Dr. Thomas'in this diocese , aud with
the estimation in which ho is held both
by people in Minnesota and by the de
nomination 61 which he is a representa
tive , would ngroe upon the wisdom of
such a choice , however unwilling they
might bc > to iiave him remove from the
field of his present and most acceptable
labors. The position of bishop in the
Protestant Episcopal church is onoof _
onerous labor , requiring tor its
satisfaction a peculiar kind of talont.
The head of o diocese and member of
the highest olllclal body known to the
church in loss n pastor than a modern
missionary. Ho must organize , direct ,
and extend the work of the church in
every direction , and perform for all the
churches under hi care duties similar to
these which nro expected from each
clergyman toward his individual congre
gation. It is , perhaps , indicative of the
tendency of work in Minnesota to
develop precisely this ability , that other
and oven elder dioceses look not infre
quently toward this field for the material
to supply vacancies caused by death In
the highest office of the church. With
the wise purpose of preventing the em
barrassments that might arise from hopes
disappointed oven though not expressed ,
as well as to secure' the inspiration to
now activity which follows transplantation
to a now scene of labor , it is customary
to go outside the liraitn of a diocese in
selecting its bishop. Minnesota has recently -
contly supplied ono in the parson of the
much-beloved Dr. Knickerbocker , whom
she qavo to Indiana. It is moro than
possible that oho will soon bo called upon
to add another to the list.
The Jtcpubllcan would emphatically
deprecate any action , whether from the
pupilt or the press , that has a tendency
to prejudice the causp of Mayor Chase
and Marshal Quthrio before the jury
soon to bo called to act on the indictment
found apainst these ofllcials. It is pre
sumed that as the grand jury has done
its ontlro duty in the promises , tbo dis
trict court will bo equally able to review
the evidence and render a verdict in ac
cordance with the facts. No outside
pressure is necessary and any display of
it will not only bo in bod'tasto , but dis
honorable and disgraceful. Republican.
No pressure irom tno press or pulpit
should have any influence upon the jury
that is to try these officers. It is pre
sumable that the jury will bo made up ,
as most of our juries are , of intelligent
mon who do not go to church and who
do not road a newspaper. At oil events
the attorneys of the defendants will BOO
to It that no man is allowed on the jury
who is biasnd by anything that ho may
have hoard or road. Mayor Ohaso him
self has publicly declared time and again
that the voice of the press is the opinion
of only ono man , and certainly the voice
of the pulpit , no matter how inspired , is
the opinion of only ono man * But in all
seriousness lot us ask why would it bo
dishonorable or disgraceful for
Lho pastor of any church
to preach a sermon from real lifo in the
interest of public morals ? The apostles
directed themselves to the correction of
the evil ways of the people of their day.
Why should not ministers of the gospel
do BO now , oven at the risk of arousing
among their hearers n resentment against
public officials who fail to do their duty
in the suppression of vice and crime ?
It is not simply the duty of the pulpit
to teach the doctrine of the gospel ,
but it. is its sacrdd duty to apply Its'
precepts to every day lifo
No intelligent parson will for ono mo
ment question the right and propriety of
Free and full discussion of the conduct of
publio officials by the press , after as well
as before indictment by the grand jury.
There are questions involved in the mis
conduct and dishonesty of executive of-
Icors that eo way beyond their moro
punishment by the criminal courts. The
vary first and the most vital question is
whether such officers , although not yet
convicted,1 ] shall bo continued at the
iioad of the city government ! Ono ot the
essential elements of good government
is the proper respect of subordinates for
the magistrate. The mayor , in his capa
city as chief executive , has the right to
exact obodtonco f com all subordlnato offi-
corsbutwhat , sortof obodioncocan officers
yioli to a man whom they cannot
respect , and whoso intemperate habits
unfit him entirely to conduct the affairs
of the publio ? Is it absolutely necessary
that the mayor and marshal shall bo con
victed of a penitentiary oficnso before
they are deposed 1 The fact that they
liavo utterly failed to do their duty , aud
that the mayor has brought scandal upon
the city , justifies the proas , and , for that
matter , the pulpit , in urging upon the
council prompt and decisive [ action.
There is altogether too much sympathy
expressed for these indicted officials. It
is presumable that the present grand jury ,
composed of some of our best businessmen
mon , would have indicted the mayor
and marshal without substantial proof of
their criminal conduct ?
THE Fits John Porter bill , having
passed both banchcs of congress , is now
[ a the hands of the president , The bill
restores Porter to the rank which ho
lield when ho was cashiered , but without
any back pay. President Arthur will in
all probability sign the bill at ouco , as ho
bad already committed himself when ho
remitted the disfranchising penalty of the
court-martial sentence a yosr ago. The
pnlyground upon which the president
could justify Uio remittance of any part
of the Boutonco was thai Porter was un
justly convicted , and if this Is conceded it
Is the duty of the president to restore him
and retire as provldod.for by thoact of con *
gross. It has been the ono object of Fjtz
John Porter's lifo to establish the fact that
ho was unjustly convicted , owint ; to the
excitement of the times and strong pre
judices which ho was unable to overcome.
Had Fitz John Porter boon a guilty man
it does not seem reasonable that ho would
have kept up his struggle for over twenty
years to convince the people and their
representatives that ho was a wronged
man. All that ho has sought to' obtain
was the restoration of his honor the re
moval of.tho brand of covrardjand traitor
and ho is to be congratulated upon the
Mu. JOHN M. Tiiuwmw has volun
teered to defend Mayor Chase In his
forthcoming trial for bribery. Mr.
Thurttoa'a alleged reason for entering jtho
a volunteer in defense of the may
or is that it is an act of gratitude for per
sonal favors dtmo him by Col. Chauo when
ho first came to Omaha. This will do to
tell to the marines. There Is something
moro than chivalry in this. Mr. Thurs
ton and Mayor Chase have hod some
deals on thp bolt line and in ether trl
fling matters , which probably inspire mu
tual gratitude. If Col. Chase were the
victim ot notno vile conspiracy , if his
his conduct had been such as to men
popular rcBpoct and confidence , Mr.
Thurston would receive the plaudits ol
all good citizens. Mr. Thurston will ,
however , not add to his own reputation
by rallying t/ > the defense of a man who
has scandalized the city by beastly de
baucheries , downright rascality in conniv
ing with a dishonest marshal in blackmailing -
mailing schemes and accepting nil sorts
of bribes from publio contractors , gamb
lers , and keepers of disorderly houses.
OMAHA , with her prize-fighters , her
crooks , her indicted mayor and marshal ,
and ether sensational features , may bo
a very wlckod place , but she is not rau ch
ahead of St. Paul. The Piqiiccr Prcsi ,
of last Sunday moining said :
"With a prize fight and a base ball
tramo on the programme for to-day , St.
Paul is surely progressing as rapidly and
far as liberal-minded could wish. It is
true that neither will take place , accord
ing to current reports , within the city
limits ; and that the former , whoso des
tined locality remains strangely sccrol
to these who wish with whom know

outside the boundaries of the stato.

Corn and Hogs.
Kaniaa City Journal.
The disposition is growing to believe
tha thereafter the United States will
merit such competition in Europe that
the balance of trade in our favor-cannot
bo maintained by our exportationa of
breaditufla. It is , however , contended
that if , in the new future , wo are com
paratively excluded from the grain mar
ket * of Europe , that the civilized world
must remain dependent upon us for meat ,
[ f our farmers are driven from wncat
: ulturo by the absence of a demand for
for American wheat in Europe , then
they will have to change their crop , or
take tospmo industry that will provo re
munerative. Making moat is regarded
is iJtho coming great industry on the
the farms of America , and it is clearly
the tendency now for the vast ranges
ever which cattle have grazed unre
strained to bo taken up , settled and given
ever moro or leas to cultivation.
In regard to this subject of meat mak
ing and the money there is in it , wo can
batter illustrate it by referring to a recent
article in The Now York Exchange Re
porter , on "Tho Cost of Pork Made from
Corn. " The article in question after al
luding to the high price paid for hogs ,
which current market ropirts ahow , says
thcso prices are maintained in ipito of
the exclusion of American pork products
from Franco and Germany , and suggests
the inquiry why our farmers , but' moro
particularly these who farm on a small or
moderate scale , do not raise moro corn
and hogs , and loss of wheat , barley ,
oats , etc. , Btnco it can easily bo
ihown that a corn crop converted into
bogs is ouo of the most profitable crops
that has. in late years been produced on
American soil. Successful farmers have
ifton obtained a pound of pork by feed
ing from two or three pounds of corn.
To obtain the best results , the grain
should bp ground and the meal steamed.
Itslnutritiyo effect and fattening powers
are surprisingly increased in this way , and
the practice of the most successful feeders
baa proved its efficacy so clearly as to
place it beyond doubt. It is , in fact , al
most Incredible how cheaply pork may bo
produced with a good brecd of hogs , if
well fed and well managed.
The Reporter furnishes the following
table giving the prices that can bo real
ized for corn at several different prices
for pork , and for different ratios of corn
to pork in feeding. The manure Is rated
at fO.CO for each ton of feed consumed ,
whioh Is probably leas than its real value
to the farmer who rightly uses it :

Now hogs in ( ho Kansas City market
at present bring from 5& to 0 cents per
pound , which according to the foregoing
Ublo is equantial to $1.14 to SI.28 per
buihol for com , whereas corn is selling
at 55 to DG cents per bushel. If four
pounds of corn will produce ono pound
of pork , as it certainly will if the grain
is properly prepared , ono buihol would
produce fourteen , pounds of pork , and
twenty-five bushels would yield a drcsiod
hog weighing 350 pounds. If the hog
brings only 0 cents per pound not , the
farmer g U equal to 81 per bushel net
for the corn. These figures and calcula
tions surely show the profit there is in
com when put into hogs.

' When will your troubles end I" nskot
a prominent Wall street banker yesterday
day afternoon. "Wo have had a dozoi
failures , two or three banks have gene
under , the Louisville & Nashville , Wes
Shore and Wabash are in an inextricable
muddle , and to-day comes the report tha
that the Union Pacific is on the rnggoc
edge of a receivership. "
The old gontlpman appeared disgustcc
and disheartened.
It was early noticed in the board-room
of the Stock Exchange that Union Paci
fie was being heavily sold. At ono time
the unpleasant rumors regarding the sit
uation of the company led to a stampede
and many of the moat conservative brokers
ors hastened to unload.
The primary cause of the trouble was
an unofficial report showing a decrease it
the net earnings of the road for April to
have boon $333,000. The bearish fool
ing on the stock was increased by a re-
pott that the export book-keepers sent by
the Qovornmont to examine the accounts
of the road had niado a bad report. II
was said that the report of the Govern
ment examiners showed that the nol
earnings for the first quarter had decreased
creased $1,600,000 , and that the surplus
of $20,000,000 , heretofore considered
sacred for the sinking fund J had boon in
vested in the company's securities for the
solo purpose of sustaining the stock and
securities of the company.
When this rumor became known there
was a poll-moll rush on the Exchange to
soil the securities of the road and in a
few minutes the stock was depressed 2f per
cont. All was in confusion and many be
lieved that , despite the road's well known
prestige , it was eventually to go the way
of all the earth to find a resting place in
the receiver's hands.
To learn the true inwardnosa'of the
company's affairs , and to refute if possi
bio the dubious rumors afloat , n Journal
reporter visited President Dillon at his
office in the Western Union building. As
a rule Mr. Dillon is not a pleasant gentleman -
tloman to interview. Ho is short and
sharp in his answers , quick and nervous
in histmanner , and decidedly averse to
speaking ot the affairs of his company.
Yesterday while apparently disturbed
over many of the reports circulated , ho
was almost urbane and oven approached
; ho genial.
"Why , my dear sir , ho said , the story
; hat wo have used the $20,000,000 in
.he sinking fund for the purpose of sup-
loriiiiR the securities of our company is
ibsolutoly false. "
Mr. Dillon hero forgot his momentary
light of calmness , and rising from his
hair , and pounding his desk , almost
loutcd :
"Tho yarn that any of us have tried to
support the stock of our company by ap
propriating the sinking fund of $20,000-
)00 ) is fake in every particular. It is a
io. sirl It is a falsehood ! "
{ Mr. Dillon resumed his chair , and the
pporter.quakiiiK in his shoes at the ebul-
ition of temper shown by Mr. Dillon ,
mildly'ventured to ask :
"It is true that the government ac
countants appointed to examine the com
pany's affairs have completed their labors
md found the company in a much worse
condition than had been expected ? "
' Put that down as another falsehood , "
said Mr. Dillon. "Lot us show you the
liapatch I have just sent to Mr. MacFar-
and , the treasurer of the road in Bos-
ion , " and ho handed the reporter the fol-
owing :
Tbo government accountants have learned
nothing beyond what has boon already fur-
nlaheil to the public except that they have the
results m detail. SIDNEY DILLON.
"What are these details , Mr. Dillon ? "
"I do not care to explain thorn just
now , " replied Mr. Dillon.
"How about the report that there is a
decline in the not earnings of the first
quarter of $1,500,000 , and that the nad
cannot meet its quarterly divident of 13-4
) or cent duo July 1V
Mr. Billion appeared a little disturbed
at this question but quiukly recovering ,
aid : "In reference to that subject I
iavo only to say that n mooting of the
directors have been culled for the 18th
nstant. They will consider thp matter ? "
"Is it true that on the application of
ho government the road will go into a
rcciovor'a hands ? "
"No sir ! " thundered the king pin of
ho Union Pacific. ' ! want to any era-
ihatically that all disputes between our-
elvcs and the government will bo adju-
iicated upon in a few months. "
It waa becoming rather lively for the
"ournal reporter , and bidding Mr. Dil-
on n hasty good afternoon ho quickly
From another source it was learned
hat if the road had proposed to pay its
Tuly dividend the books of the company
hould hare been closed several days
ago. It is also said that Mr. Tildcn and

at times causing Intolerable Itching and the most In

and other advertised remedies , but experienced no
relief until I procured the Cutlcura Remcdlos.nhlch ,
