THE day wo do not celebrate in Omaha
Is near nt hand.
, is the Bcoson of the year when on
appointment to Alnskn ought to bo ap
predated moro than nt any ether time.
IF there are any noticablo number of
now saloons oponcd during the next few
weeks in Omaha , it will bo nafo to say the
keepers are emigrants from the prohibi
tion state of Iowa.
WE nro not surprised that Harry Ool
richs , a Wyoming cattle kinglms followed
the Jersey Lily nil the wny to San Frnn
cisco. Ho wants to introduce tho.Torsoy
among his long-horns.
Now that oxyqon has boon discovorcc
to bo a Buro euro for cholera the democratic
party is onfo. A dose of oxygen may ro
atoro Sam Tilden to vitality before the
democratic national convention meets.
PAUKEII , of No TV Jor
eay , has not declined the democratic
presidential nomination. Ho very son
ibly says that ho Is not a candidate ;
and cannot nccopt anything which has
.not boon tendered him.
IF Ex-Mayor Chase could aot a change
of venue to Lancaster county nnd got the
editor of the Lincoln Journal on the jury
Jio could rest assured as to the result.
The Journal man , who is a champion ol
the ex-mayor's cause , would hang the
jury. Mr. Gore has always had n sym
pithotio fooling for bribo-takors ,
CHAIRMAN Donsnv , of the atato ropub-
Jican committee , has oponcd the cam
paign by an urgent appeal to all county
republican committees to organize
Ulaino and Logan club in each town and
village at once , and rnako Nebraska the
banner state in the union. It is to bo
Jiopcd that Mr. Dorsoy'B efforts will bo
seconded by all loyal republicans , in
every part of the state.
THE cable brings us the important intelligence
telligenco that Minister Lowell has , ou
account of the gout , rf decided to
' .give up his anticipated swell Fourth ol
'J July dinner. This is a great sacrifice on
the part of Minister Lowell , and ho
ivill have the sympathy of the American
people , who the day bofojo wore informed
that ho concluded not to abandon his din
ner. If ho again changes his mind with
in the next twenty-four hours the Ameri
can public will of course bo informed by
-tho cablo.
TIIE now anti-Chinese bill , which has
already passed the house , will probably
bo brought up in the sonata this week
It is a very stringent measure , and gives
Additional powers to ofliciaU for the en
forcemeat of necessary regulations. The
democrats allege that the reason fur tok
ing it up at this late day is to strengthen
Blaine on the Pacific coast. They scorn
to forget , however , that the California
dojpgation was the most enthusiastic in
its support of Blaine , and fought for him
first , last and all the timo. Ho will have
10 difficulty in carrying the Pacific CORB
toy a largo majority , as ho is a great favorite
vorito t aero.
THE continued depression in the stoo
industry has compelled tlio managers ol
the Pennsylvania steel works , near Har
zisburg , to give notice of a reduction in
yagcs of 10 per cent. Ai the altornativi

OuiEf JUSTICE DISAKK , of tbo court o
claims , is a very particular man. Hi

was mode out to Charles D.

lormittoA to cndorao it with the signature

cumstances was to lot the chief justice of
the court of claims keep the chock as n

THEIIE is nt Chicago , in the Briggs
house , a crank by the nnmo of Shivoloy ,
who pretends to carry In his pocket Uio
entire anti-monopoly p rty In his trow-
ser-loons pocket. This brilliant genius
assures the political mugwumpswho
are working up a Blato for Bon 'Butler
that Nebraska would bo ono of the ulatos
that Butler could carry if ho is endorsed
by the democrats. A striking illustra
tion of the valuable fund of political in
formation possorsod by this man
Shivoloy , is afforded by his
reference to Senator Vnn Wyck ,
who ho says was elected two years by the
republicans , as a compromlsu candidate
in order to prevent the election of nn
out and out monopolist. What Shivoloy
does not know about Nebraska politics
would Dll BOV oral volumes.
Tin : cholera in Franco is being pretty
well hold in check. So far it has boon
confined principally to Toulon and Mar-
soillo3.grho most Important ploco of news
regarding the epidemic is the cable an
nouncement that five cmes of cholera
have boon cured by Inhaling pure oxy.
gen. The effect of the inhalation oxy <
gen , it is stated , is immediate , nnd con
sists in restoring warmth to the system ,
making the pulse normal. Oxygen being -
ing ono of thoolomonts of the atmosphere
and essential to vitality , it is reasonable
to presume that the introduction of pure
oxygen will destroy the germs
of the disease. The trouble
with the patient is that ho
dies from exhaustion , the disintegration
of the vital forces being very rapid.
The disease ia probably of miasmatio
origin , and local conditions may favor or
check ita local development ; but whether
; } io disease ought to bo called contagious
or not is ono of the most warmly disputed
points in medicine. It is certain that
labitunl personal contact with the sick
is often not followed by the disease. It is
bold by many that the diaoaao is propa
; atod by drinking water ; by others , that
its germs are taken up from the air
the patient breathes. Tlio discovery
of the oxygen treatment is , if it proves a
success , a greater discovery than that of
vaccination , the latter being a proven
tlvo and the former a cure. The lending
physicians of Franco nnd the French
Acadomy'of Medicine will no doubt fully
investigate the oxygen treatment , and
render a definite decision as to its
Under the lend of the notorious Jnoni
Lowiewho was recently elected president
of the Omaha Typographical union in
place of Kellogg 0. Gould , another gene
ral printers' strike is shortly to bo precip
itated in all the newspaper offices ol
Omaha. As a prelude to this programme
permits hnvo boon iisuod by the union tea
a number of printers to work in the Biu
oflico , nnd they have from time to time
boon employed hero. Some of these
printers , as wo are reliably informed ,
have boon imported from ether cities for
the solo purpose of creating discord
and trouble , and the scheme is
to have another walk-out from this oflico
whllo the democratic national convention
is in session. Wo hnvp never objopted to
union printers so long as they behaved
thomuolvca nnd accepted positions In
good faith , bub being forewarned wo
don't propose to allow the mlsdhiof
makers to disturb the workings of tin
oflico. They will hardly succeed pt this
time in roping-in the mon who are
thoroughly satisQod with thnir places nnc
wages. So far as wo are concerned wo
say to the printers' union that we know
that our patrons will bo satisfied if wo
don't publish a paper larger than n poata
card during any trouble that may bo un
juatly nnd maliciously precipitated upon
us by the union , nnd believe that the
patrona of nil tlio Omaha dailies fool the
same way. *
What excuse is there for n strike ai
this time for higher wages ) With the
commerce and industry prostrated al
over the land , with hundreds of thousands
of mechanics and laborers out of employ'
mont , with manufacturers ecarcoly able
to keep their heads above water , the
newspapers of the country are in no con
dition to advance the wages of their cm-
ployoa. In Omaha , notwithstandingtho
public improvements and the various
enterprises of the business men ,
the depression ia more or loss
felt. Moro than 1000 mon have boon
thrown out of employment during the
last six months in the Union Pacific shops.
They would gladly resume work at their
old wages , bu.t they cannot'du BO as there
is no work for them , and they are com
pelled to seek employment in ether
channels. Labor every where has boon
compelled to succumb to the inevitable.
The cost of food and clothing and all
commodities hns boon steadily declining
for the past two or throe yean. In the
face of all this the printers in the BEK
office are earning from ten to fifteen per
cent moro than they wore five years
ago , when they wore satiified.
The 'scab" wages which wo pay will en.
able any competent printer to earn from
52.CO to 81.00 per dor , year in and year
out. Our printers' pay-roll to-day ia
a week more than it was two years ago.
But these facts luwo
no weight with a
gang of hoodlums and tramps who came
hero to organize strikes and create
trouble. Their conduct during the
recent strike , and over since , has boon
such as ta soarlacs every iottut
air treatment nnd good wages nro no
what they want. They want fight rtnd
the sooner they begin the bettor. They
wnnt strikes , and they want tontribu-
Ions from the labor of others to support
horn during their idleness. Wo appio-
tend that the contributions will not bo
eery numerous.
Before another year rolls round Omaha
will bo confronted with the problem of
low to raise sufficient revenue , under the
present system of assessment , to moot
ho current expenses , which ore constant-
y increasing with the growth nnd im
provement of the city. Before the
water works wore put in , TTO wore posi
tively assured that when the works wore
completed the fire department expenses
would bo cut down three-fourths , as wo
would have a jmfllclont number of fire
tiydranta to protect property.
At that time , nbout tliroo years
ago , the fire department expanses
wore about $15,000 a year. The waterworks -
works have boon completed , nnd we nro
paying a tax of over 822,000 a year for
hydrant rental , but the fire department
expenses have not boon cut down. Wo
have , in four years , incrooaod our police
force from eight mon to thirty ; and the
expense of this department from 87,200
to 827,000 n year. Other departments
in the city have boon increased proper
tionately. Wo nro levying n tax for
ntreot sprinklingnnd we have juatlotacon-
tract for street cleaning vrhich will add
$10,000 to the aggregate yearly munici
pal expenses. Whore is all this money
to como from , if the present system
of ridiculously low assessment is
continued ? How ia it practical under
the limitations imposed by the state con
stitution nnd the city charter in the
levying of taxes to raise n revenue that
will moot all those expenses and leave
us besides a reasonable amount for
ordinary improvements , such as grading ,
curbing , guttering , Boworago , and re
pairs ? There must bo a halt called on
the constant increase of municipal ex
penses , or wo must have some way of
levying a revenue to moot these expenses.
Our expenses ara bound to increase , nnd
the only wny to do is to increase our as
sessments to n reasonable figure. It
ia an outrage to longer con
tinue our property valuation at
$7,000,000 which is considerably less
than it was ton years ago. Docs nny sane
man suppose for ono moment that our
property has not increased in value
in ton years ? Yet the assessors continuo -
tinuo to assess property nt the same
old figures , when it is nn undeniable fact
that property has increased all the way
from five to ton fold in valuo. Are they
going to keep on assessing nt the old fig-
urcs , while Omaha is growing to bo n
largo city of 100,000 people a city of
over five times the size of , what it wan in
1870 ? What wo need and must have is
immediate reform in our assessments.
TIIK question whether n railroad com
pany is responsible for the acts of its
employes is being pretty definitely an-
aworcd in the affirmative by the supreme
courts of the various states. The latest
decision on this point has heon rendered
by the Bupromo court of Massachusetts.
The ticket seller of the Boston & Albany
railroad at North Adams , Bold to a pas
senger two tickets , ono from North
Adams to Chester , and the other , which
was punched twice , nnd which the agent
represented vraa good , for the remainder
of the journey from Cheater to Spring-
Gold , When tha passenger tendered
the plintmed ticket to the con-
dtiotot it was refused on the
ground that it was worthless. Ho also
refused to telegraph to thu agent nt
North Adams to luurn whether it waa
good. The pnBsongor , who would pay the
seventy cents faro demanded by the con
ductor , was forcibly ejected from thot
ait nt Pittsfiold , whore he was handed
ever to a policeman nnd detained in the
lock-up ever night. In the morning ho
was released , no charge being preferred
against him by the company. Tlio
North Adnma ticket seller subsequently
aont an apology the purchaser of the
ticket for his blunder. This gentleman ,
however , thought that ho was entitled to
BOinothitii ; more substantial than nn apology
elegy , nnd brought suit agaiuat the
company for dnmagoa.Tho jury
give him n verdict for ? 1,500. Judge
Soulo , counsel for the road , naked the
court to rule that the conductor had n
right to net ns ho did Binco the ticket
proffered was not good. The mistake ot
the ticket seller hoclaimod was something
that tlio conductor was not responsible
for , The court declined so to rule , but
instructed Uio jury that if Uio purchaser
exorcised reasonable care in the purchase
of his ticket and bought it in qood faith
ho was entitled to recover. The defen
dant appealed to thu supreme court , and
this tribunal has overruled the exceptions
sustaining the ruling of the lower court.
Thia Bottles the fact thnt a railroad com
pany must bo responsible for the negli
gence of B employes whether Uiey are
ticket BO i n T others.

"Tho Hilllop Highway to Lhicoln and
Lho mountains" is the title given to the
now D. & M. cut-off between Omaha and
Ashland. The work of grading the route
is now under way for n distance of four or
five miles from this city. The hilltops are
dotted with the tonta and the
camp equipments of the graders.
The line will run , acres * the Union Paci
fic at the Summit mid strike the now
slock yards at the northwest corner.
The route takes a southwestern course
from this point and will again cross the
Union Pacific somewhere between Pap-
pilion and Millard. There are a largo
number of mon and teams employed and
the intontien is to push it to completion
before anew flies.
The Ohoyonno papers joyfully report
that the "sinews of war" have been
secured to push the construction of tbo
railroad from Choycnno to the Yellow-
Btono park. The capitalists who are to
furnish ' tha funds are coming Treat to
Investigate tbo road and perfect plans
for its construction. The building of
thia much talkod-of line , which now
scorns assured , will work a wonderful
transformation in that region of Wyoming
now almost uninhabited , opening up
now Holds of enterprise , and furnishing
transportation facilities for the stock nnd
mineral industries of the interior. The
Swootwntcr nnd Big Horn vnlloya rank
among the host grazing fields of the torritl
tory < while the mineral wealth of the
various dlatricts contiguous to the pro-
poaod line will received a much needed
"A railroad to the northwest , " says the
Sun , "which will combine the routes of
the : Cheyenne , Black Hills & Montana
survey and also a line westward from
Fort Laramie through the rich mineral
sections of Albany , Carbon and Fremont
counties , with a branch line tapping the
stock country in Swootwntor county , nnd
finally extending to the great national
pleasure grounds , will open Wyoming's
resources to the world and make her the
greatest territory in the woat.
"A somewhat significant fact in this
connection is. the recent filing by Prof.
Samuel Aughoy on thirty-one placer oil
claims , for the Bothwoll syndicate , in
township 41 , range 81. This township is
in the southern line of townships n
Johnson county , on the nouth park of
Powder river , and but fifty miles from a
very fcasablo route for a railroad west
ward from Fort Laramio. "
The negotiations which have been in
progress for some time between a com
mittee of the citizens of Laramie and
Btockmon of Albany county , Wyoming ,
and the land department of the Union
Pacific , did not result In a definite settle
ment of the question at issue the pur.
chase price of GOO , 000 acres of land in
the county mentioned. Commissioner
Burnham , of the land department , at
first offered to sell the land in bulk at
loss than $1 per acre , provided no bettor
terms could bo had frppij outside parties
vrlio wore at the time negotiating for the
same land. Befora the Laramie syndi
cate had concluded to purchase a dispatch
was received from the commlBsionorput-
ting thoprico _ at $1 per acre. This rather
demoralized the syndicate. The conflict-
ing ; Interests of the ranchmen caused a
deli ay fatal to the reduced prlco , and a
failure to accept oven the terms of $1 per
aero will result in stillhigh'or ; prices.
The atmosphere of Mormondom is at
present streaked with the sulphurous
fumes of profanity , the like of which has
not boon equalled since the day of Til-
don's declination. The dispatches put it
mildly when they stated that the npos-
ties , bishops and aiders and their angelic
following wore hot because congress had
passed the anti-polygamy bill , The Mor
mon press have ransacked the histories
of ancient and modern persecutions and
culled from their teeming pages a sufli-
cionoy of adjectives to feebly express
their contempt for the authors and sup
porters of the bill. "Wo are compelled , "
says the Ogdcn Pilot , "to refer again to
that infamous piece of Torquoraadn juris
prudence , to that rocking resuscitation of
Now England blua-lnwo , which bears the

The Denver & Rio Grande road , the
narrow guago giant of Colorado , is on
the ragged cdgo of bankruptcy. Its career
from its birth has boon a continuous bat
tle with obstacle ! bundling and operating
ing , It scaled mountain sides only to
strew them with dismantled engines and
splinters of wrecked can. Mountain
torrents and bewildering canyons were
spanned with costly bridges , to become
playthings in the besom of summer
floods. In the past winter Ita energies
and treasury wore taxed to dig its way
through hugh snow drifts , a clear hall
million dollars being spent in that work ,
and scarcely had the snow shovels boon pul
away than the summer thaws sot in ,
washing away mile after mile of the track
and blockading business for weeks , To

It is hardly possible In the present
condition of the company's finances to
save the road from a receiver. Even if
the vat damage which the road has BUS
taincd had not occurred , the business of
mining camps and mountain towns , bare
ly a fraction of what it was a year ago ,
failed to offset the drain on the treasury

The blockade of business bywashouts
on the Salt Lake extension of the Denver
& Rte Grande has forced the Burlington
management to look around for a safer
and bettor route through the mountains
to Salt Lake City. The Denver Tribune ,
speaking 1 of the movement , says : "Thn
Burlington is surveying anew rou'o from
Denver to Bolt Sake through Boulder
canyon and Middle Park. This is not
conclusive | evidence , however , that it has
decided to build an extension It has
had surveying parties out between this
point and Salt Lake for two years. All
the routes have boon rejected as too
costly. But a road through northwest
Colorado would pay from its local traffic.
It would open a virgin country that is
full of varied resources. "
