\A MILWAUKEE firm is manufacturing
an immense stock of imitation prAydr
books for the shipment of whisky into
the prohibitory state of Iowa. Thia
prayer-book will very likely have a largo
circulation in Iowa.
Tun brewers of Iowa closed their ban
yesterday , but will open thorn again today -
day , and will continue brewing in
doGnanca of the prohibitory law. They
may find that while they are brewing
boor , trouble is brewing for thorn.
IT ij not always oafo for n passenger in
a Pullman car , when ho lo&os his pocket-
book" to accuse the porter of having
stolen it. A Pullman porter on the
Alton road has just been awarded § 5,000
by a Chicago jury for having been
wrongfully accused of larceny by a pas-
aongcr. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Tun Chicago Times pertinently says
that it might bo in order for Air. Charles
Francis Adama , who has lately boon
made the president of the Union Pacific
road , to inform the stockholder ! ! of that
institution , vrhoso money ii building the
Oregon short line , developing several
frontier towtia , nucl stocking the cattle
ranches of oomo of the recent managers.
Tun city attorney of Springfield , Mis
souri , having being suspended from oflico
by the mayor , threatens , unless the order
is revoked , to inatituto proceedings for
the purpose of ousting the mayor and
three members of the city council from
oflico for violating the state con * titution
by accepting free transportation from the
railroads. If such n law wcro in force
in Nebraska , a great many vacancies
could bo made in the varitms oflicos.
. . AND now cornea another man and says
lie would not accept the democratic
nomination. This time it is Charles A.
Dana , -who aayn that ho has constantly
declined all suggestions looking toward
the efiort to bo nominated for the pros-
.idoncy , and that ho in content to remain
the editor of the Sun. Mr. Dana pro
bably fears that if ho were nominated
and defeated ho would become the inmate
tof'a lunatic asylum as did poor Horace
Oreoloy. Mr. Dana is a very sensible
Tin : committtoo on invalid pensions

TUB coal oil inspection law of Iowa re-
quirea the coal oil inspector to work under
tuo instructions of the atato board of
health. The inspector , however , has re
cently soon fit to pay no regard to the
rules of the board , whoso regulations
were not agreeable to the Standard oil
company , with whom the inspector Booms
totfaoon too friendly and favorable terms.
Ta.o ( inspector recently refused to obey
tb'p rule that requires the inspector to
remove all other brands from barrels be
fore affixing the atato brand. This would
locate definitely the inspection and prevent -
vent any attempt to overvalue the oil.
When the board of health called the in
spector's attention to the rule and de
manded that he should rigidly enforce it ,
ho emphatically refused to do so , assort
ing that the rale was arbitrary and ho
would not obey it. The law creating his
oflico expressly requires the governor to
remove the inspector and appoint another
in case the board of health shall demand
such action , and they have determined
to do to unless the .inspector ahall obey
instructions. lie hai been officially
notified that the board dco uotproposo
to luva any moro foolishness.
TUB work of reform in the municipal
affairs of Omaha , which has been begun
with the indictment of the mayor , mar *
thai and BU tx-councilracn , for bribery
and corruption , in oflico , and the im
peachment and removal of the mayor
ana the resignation of the marshal , is not
only having a good oflect in this oomtnu.
nitybut it is bearing good fruit elsewhere ,
Thottcllou of the grand jury and city
council is beingcominented. upon in terms
of the hlgtiMt praUe by the press every
where , and in citiw where municipal re
form is needed as much as it is here , the
example of Omaha in bringing corrupt
officials to justice is being followed.
In the city of llochcstor , N. Y. , thr
grand jury has boon investing the cijy
officials , and it has just presented j/jdjct- /
monta against the president of the city
council for offering to sell his influence
to the Baltimore it Ohio telegraph com
pany , against an ox-councilman for per
jury and bribery , against ono school com
missioner for embracery and against an
other for misconduct in oflico. The in
dictment against the ox-councilman
charges him with having received nearly
$3,000 for procuring appointments to
public office. This will explain how
sorao councilmcn got rich on nominal
salaries. Ono of the school commission-
era was indicted for attempting to infhi'
cnco a grand juror by offering him fiftj
THK rumors concerning the ill-hcaltl
and contemplated resignation of Genera' '
Manager Clark , of the Union Pacific
continue to float over the country at frequent
quent intervals and in all sorts of shapes
The wildest rumor Is that ho innistn 01
liia resignation being accoplod , nnd Urn *
it is understood that ho is to bo succeeded
od by Tom Potter , general manager o
the Burlington , nt a salary of § 30,000 t
year for five years. The fact is that Mr
Clark is in very good health and is devoting
voting all his time nnd energy to thodis
charge of the duties of his position. JIc
has not tendered his resignation , and
docs not propose to , As to Tom Potloi
being offered $30,000 a year to succeed
him , no moro absurd story could have
been ntartod. It is not likely that the
Union Pacific , which IB reported to bo on
the verge of bankruptcy , and is cutting
down expenses all along the line , would
indulge in any such extravagance as n
thirty thousand dollar manager. Tom
Potter or any other living man ia worth
thirty thousand dollar. ! to the Union Pa
cific as general manager. The Union
1'aciGo has for years been paying too ex
travagant salaries to its high officials , nnd
the probability is that under the re
trenchment , inaugurated by President
Adams , the high-salaried olliooro will bo
reduced in pay and number.
Tun lown prohibitory law has gene in
to effect. It is now predicted that an
army of oncnks and informers will
find employment in watching all persons
suspected of dealing or handling liquor
in any shape. The law is very strict.
It prohibits people from keeping
liquor in their houses in unusual
quantities , which will probably bo con
strued to moan moro than a pint at u
time. It is evident that informers , in
their eagerness to earn rewards , will
oven iuvado private houses in search
of liquor. If the law is enforced
to the letter , it will soon become
como obnoxious to the people who voted
for it , and ita appeal or modification will
bo the result. There in no doubt that
all Boris of ovations will bo practiced , and
already railroads have prepared n way foi
shipment of liquors. They have isimod
an amended order to shipping agents tc
decline to receive freightu "for points on
or reached by thia line and its connec
tions , " unices the name of the consignee
is given In full with shipping directions ,
the initialo of the name being insufficient
for a proper identification of the con
signee. The property itself may bo for
warded with the initials only , or some
other disignating mark on it ; but the
shipping directions and billing from the
nhipping station mustm ov ry caso'-s'liow
the name of the oonoigneo in full. Thie
is taken to moan that by packing in qucin
boxes labeled "merchandise , " dealers 01
others may ship liquors if they will loavt
the initials of their names on .tho boxen ,
Tin : BKI ; says that the valuation ol
Omaha for taxation purpoieti is only ? ? ,
000,000 , and that it has notboon changed
for yuors.
This is a mistake nnd ought to bo qoii'
orally corrected. The valuation of Onm-
ha to-day upon which wo nro to bo taxed
is over C ,000',000 , an inoreaso of 2,000-
000 iii two years.Omnha licpubllcan.
Tun lir.i : has made no mistake in ita
statements regarding the assessments.
Wo have from time to time stated that
the assessment of Omaha for savoral
years has been about $7,000,000 , and
such is the undeniable fact. This assess
ment is lower than the assessment of
1870 , whoit the city had not over 20,000
people , andgroal estate was depressed.
Within the past month , however , the
county commissioners , acting no doubt
upon the suggestions of Tun BEK , have
slightly revised the assessments , and the
result of their work , which has just boon
announced , in the raising of the valuation
of Douglas oountyabout $1,500,000 , which
added to the county valuation of last year
mnkos the valuation this year about $12-
OG ! > , D07. This makes the valuation of
the city of Omaha this year about § ! ) , -
000,000. The county commissioners are
entitled to some little credit for this
small increase in the valuation , but they
must revise the valuation many millions
more before wo roach anywhere near the
ootusl value of property. The valuation
of the city of Omaha ought to bo at the
very least from 818.000,000 to $20,000- ,
COO. In their revision of the assessment
rolls the county commissioners have
found the work carelessly done by mon
who either know little or nothing of the
value of work or who have intentionally
indorvaluod property. Most of them
iave obtained the assessment rolls of pre
vious yours and merely copied off tha
Igurcs , not oven going to the trouble of
viewing the property aisoasod or posting
.houudvoa as to the numerous improvements -
monts that have boon made. All they
seemed to care for wua to complete their
work with as little labor and trouble as
) ossiblo , and in tl-o ehortost possible
; iino , BO that they could draw their pay.
This ehiftlcss way ol doing business
comes from the manner of electing
assessors. Tom , Dick , and Harry are
elected to this important office without
regard to qualification. Our people Boom
to forget that the office of assessor is a
very important ono , and at elections they1
tike little or no interest in the selection
ol candidates. Wo atill insist that wo
need and must have n thorough reform
in our assessment system. Wo believe
that some provision ought to bo made for
the appointment of ono competent gene
ral assessor for the city , with power to
appoint deputies , or elao n board of real
ostalo appraisers , to consist of men who
are acknowledged judges of the value of
real cstalo , should bo appointed. Some
legislation is necessary to regulate thia
matter , and no doubt at the next session
of the legislature this nubjcct will bo pro
perly legislated upon.
Tin : Illinois democrats have nominated
for governor a man who has achieved
natlcnal notoriety ns "tho best mayor
Chicago over had , " according to his own
csti mate of himself. It is almost unnec
essary to say that his name it Carter
Ilarrison , familiarly called "Our Carter"
by Ohicagcans. Ho is n collcgo-brcd
man , a lawyer by profession , a politician
by occupation , and nu orator
of no little renown. Ho has served
two terms in congress , and it was during
his first term that lie discovered that ho
was an orator. Hia centennial speech at
Philadelphia , while attending a congres
sional banquet , g.ivo him the title of
"Our Carter. " lie had not spoken in con
gress up to this time , or oven upon such
an occasion , nnd waa.called upon to respond
spend to the toast , "Agricultural the
Basis of Commerce. " Raising his voice
to a pitch which ho had never reached before -
fore , ho uttered those words : "I en mo
from a district three miles long and two
miles wide , and in it wo raise moro grain
than many stales combined. It is raised
by elevators. " This caused a roar , and
it continued until ho recovered. Ho be
gan again and forced himself to bo fun
ny , lost ho should have a rolapso. The
papers next morning had him reported
as 0. Henry Harrison. The nowa came
to Chicago , and a paper naked :
'Who is this 0. Henry Harrison ,
of Chicago ? " And the next day the
same paper answered the conundrum :
"Why , it is our Carter. " It travelled
and fastened upon him , and there it re
mains. His next speech to attract any
attention was the ono dolivorad juat before -
fore ho loft congress. It was known his
"Marino oand" speech , and from it grow
the cognomen of "tho Eagle. " In his
fancy ho soared from ocean to ocean , and
thus it was that ho was dubbed after the
great American bird.
The nomination of Harrison is regard
ed by the republicans of Illinois with n
great deal of pleasure , as -weakens the
democratic pirty and entangles it in a
complication of "contradictions and ab
surdities" from which it cannot extricate
itself. Leading republicans claim the
democrats will bo > defeated by 40,000
majority ,
There is no longer , any doubt .that
Gladstone will bo overwhelmingly sus
tained in his cause with regard to the
proposed policy in the future' manage
ment of Egyptian affairs as outlined in
the agreement between the French and
English ministry. The conservative out
look in England is certainly gloomy. Jt
seems 10 have been agreed that there was
no hope that the vote of censure on the
Egyptian policy of the government would
prevail , and the Egyptian policy is
without doubt the most vulnerable point
in Mr. Gladstone's administration. What
chance the conservatives have against
him in domestic politics is shown , on
their own evidence , by their failure
even to demand a division on the
franchise bill , which win ordered to n
third rending hist evening by a unani.
inous vote. Wonderful as this result
Buuiiia , it has been evident , over since
Ditrnt'li'dcharaolorinticBtrokoof 18U7that
no olfcotivo opposition could or would bo
offered to any extension of the auflVago.
The present bill is n very long stride to.
wnrd universal suffrage. In fAct , with
all the complicated clauses and classifi
cations of the bill , its actual effect will
bo to enfranchise almost every Etiplish-
man who ia not a tramp or a pauper.
Under it ono-sovonth of the population
is entitled to vote , vrhcroos under our
unrestricted suffrage only one-fifth is in
possession of the suffrage. The lords
will Bcarcoly venture really to obstruct
the bill , much as ttliuy must dislike BO |
ominous U throat' against the privileges
of their order as it makes. To with
stand the unanimous vote of the com-
monsMrould be1 more madness. The
reference to their attitude which Sir
Stafford Northcoto called Mr. Gladstone
to order for making was , therefore , not
only irregular but unseemly. The now
measure is moro radical than any of the
preceding reform bills , or than oil of
them together. It does not frankly
abandon the pretense , but it abandons
everything except the pretense , that
political power in Great Britain is based
upon property and not upon numbers.
The cordial understanding between
England und Franco on the Egyptian
question appears to give great umbrage
to Prince Bismarck , to judge from the
bitter language of ono of his organs , the
Cologne Gazette , U this understanding
between the two Western Powers is not
duo to the common hatred of Germany ,
as the organ assorts , it ia doubtless the
result of a common fear of that power ,
which the organ doubtless means. It
would bo strange if England and Franco
were to remain indifferent to the military
I menace of Germany and should fail to
make preparations to resist ita power ,
The Cologne Qazcitc very truly says that
England , "some day in the near future , '
may have need of Franco as a sort ol
shield bearer ; but If ft llkbly that Franco
will have great need ol linglahdi

The death of the prince of Orange will
probably have little effect on European
politics , although the succession of n
princess 4 years old under the regency ol
her mother is not a desirable contingency
for Dutchmen to contemplate. Prince
Bismarck , with his customary arrogance ,
has announced that Germany will rcsont
any attempt to make the succession a
European question. There is no reason ,
perhaps , why it nhould bo treated as a
Gorman question , which appears to bo
Bismarck's alternative. Bismarck has
done notable work in the way of absorb
ing small Gorman states into the empire ,
but they were nt leant all Gorman. The
annexation of Holland would bo the ac
quisition of a pcoplo alien in blood and in
speech irom Germany , and would bo a
Bourco of wcaknocs and not of strength
to the empire. The Dutch ministry , it
will be observed , declines to permit the
regency of Queen Emtna with any mem
ber of the Gorman brunch of the roya !
family , though the queen herself is of the
house of Wnldock-l'yrmont. Upon the
whole there is no ro.iaon to doubt that the
jealousies of the great powera.which hnvo
maintained the independence of Hollant'
for BO many years , will bo relaxed in or
der to permit Germany to make an acqui
sition Bho ought not to deniro. It is re
ported that negotiatinna nro on foot be

to the Dutch succession. Lord Granville

It BS pretty accurately ascertained thai
Spain does not wish to acll Cuba. The
Madrid Dona have squeezed BO
money out of that unfortunate island
that oven in the present depressed finan
cial condition of the Cubans and with an
incipient rebellion on their hands , they
propose to keep up the equoczing pro
cess nnd got what dttcata are loft. Forty
ybars ago Spain positivsly ref unod to sell
the island to na for § 100,000,000 , and the
only probability of incorporating Cuba in
the American Union lies in n successful
Cuban rebellion and a Cuban plebiscite ,
voting the island in , or in n war with
Spain oa our part and the captureof the
property as spoils of war. The latter
method is hardly n subject for intelligent
consideration now.
The curiously mado-up commission re
cently appointed by the czar to search
into the causes of military nihilism re
port that the disaffected officers have had
two substantial grievances. The pay of
the officers is inadequate , and the system
of promotion in the Russian army , taint
ed ng'it ' ia by favoritism , nop otism and
corruption , teems with injustices. There
is n certain , frankness in this oponavowal
of grave abuses by the Grand Duke
Vladimir and his colleagues , which gives
birth to a hope that ncceosary reforms
may , after all , bo in serious contempla
tion at the winter palaco. Wore there
no intension on ; the part of the Czar to
remedy the * ovila revealed and admitted
by the cammiBslon , it Is not conceivable
that thia report would have boon made
public. An era of reform , once bogi.n in
Russia , may go far to lessen the weigh !
of Tartario despotism ; and cert.inly , next
to the reform of the corrupt und rapacious
bureaucracy , there is none likely to bo
more warmly welcomed by the hardy sub
jects of the czar than that of the abuses
in the imperial army nnd navy.
The so-called "election " has occurret
in Mexico , nnd General Diax will next
winter become president of the republic
once more. No uprising or revolution ia
likely to deprive him of the office. The
return of this eminent and moat pro
gressive citizen to power will bo an occa
sion for rejoicing on both sides of the
Riu Grande , and in Europe ns well as
America. For there could bo no butter
assurance that the material and moral
progress of Mexico is not to ceaso. Gen
eral Diaz embodies the aims of the moro
enlightened Mexicans. His policy looks
to the cultivation of the country's re
sources , to friendship with the United
States nnd all other powers , and to the
domestication of modern ideas. The
"election" of president Is merely u
formal ratification by handful of voters
of the purposes of the military chiefs
who manage public nff'iirs. The choice
of Diaz accordingly shows that the ruling
spirits , backed by the army uiid by the
greater part of the moro intelligent
pooplu , nro of his way of thinking about
these innovations. Bo long na this remains -
mains true , the disaffected will have little
opportunity to exhibit on n largo scale

affairs BO warmly advocated by Don Por-
firio and his wiao-awako supporters.
The PortuguoBO minister at Paris has
been Binoothing over the provisions of
thu Anglo-Portuguese treaty concerning
the Congo , in order to relieve Franco.
Portugal is willing to have a Congo com
mission , modeled upon the Danube com-
misaibn , , comp'osod of representatives of
all nations interested in affairs in these
regions ; she does not dcsjro to increase
hor.-Urritory in Africa , uor does she iu-
tondlto levy duties , except for the more
expc ss of guarding 'tl $ rivers. In
factPortugal's ' entire effort is devoted to
enabling small tradora to got their share
of the advantages of Congo commerce ,
and will welcome any 'international ar
rangement to protect the rights of all ,
Portugal has , nothing but the small
reminiscences of her old , exploring great
ness to attach her to. Africa or any other
place outside her narrow borders , and it
is very kind of her to Buy she doesn't
want to make mischief.
The Gorman government has until re *
ccutly avoided any dissuasion of a colonial
nial policy. The system of Bismark was
lutondnd for profitable effectuation in
Europo. Ho is too profound an observ
er of the operations of neighboring na
tions to engage in any reckless foreign
explorations , for1 that is the policy that
liaa weakened and destroyed many pow
erful Btatos and for that reason ho has
aevor yet opposed the French tendency
in African and Asiatic aggrandizement ,

Major Von dor tioltz , n German war
rior of the Von Moltko sort , has recently
written n book on the necessity of war
nnd largo arniamcnU. "Tho control of
the world , " ho aayp , "cannot bo acquired
eave by war , ano can bo maintained only
by war. The time of cabinet war is
all very fiuo to talk of disarming and pre
venting bloodshed , but that is an error
which should bo corrected. In the do
main of war the most dangerous errors
are these that como from kindliness of the
heart. These who employ f jrco must
use it without regard to consequences ,
without A thought of the blood that is
shed.I' This ia the Moltko doctrine ; the
doctrine which built up the House of
Hohonzollorn , which to-day rests on a
pedestal of gro s injustice , blood and the
spoils of war. It ia the effectuation of this
relentless doctrine which has made all
Europe arm , until Germany can call
six million soldiers in the field in the
event of war , and Hussia can bring out
thirteen millions. That Is the paper
strength of these governments , but it H
no exaggeration ns to material. An to
soldiers perfectly drilled and prepared
for the duties of the field , Germany has
in keeping , for inatant use , 3,800.000
mon nnd lluBsin has 2,500,000 equally
well 'prepared. Austria-Hungary can
put in the field 1,205,000 soldiers , nnd
Itnly"sstrength is 12,5(10,000 ( mon , making
nbout ten millions of combatants
from the four countries. Franco is
taxed to death to prepare for the "gen-
oral war" which the old dogs of war
sny must sooner or later devastate
Europe , and she can send two million
men into the field , prepared. Taking
into consideration the costly navies
which all these powers are continually
strengthening , it is easy to perceive the
source of the Urge European budgets ,
Billions of money have been taken from

The colhpso of the Chinese campaign
against the French has completely ex
ploded the apprehension quito current
a few years ngo in European military
journals that brcech-loadoKa nnd iron
clads would make China n formidable
military power. The portion of the
Ohinoap army which haa received European -
poan discipline ia small , and even that
has not profited very much. A letter
from Canton in the London News says
there was great raqo in the community at
the dofcnt in Tonqitin , and strenuous ef
forts wcro made by the distribution of
illustratcu placards to convince the people
plo that the Chinese fell upon the French
"like tigora upon goats. " The foreign ,
population anticipated serious trouble in

The returns all show that the total re
duction made in the rents of the Irish
peasantry by the land commission will
amount this year to nearly ' 3COOCOO ,
sterling. It is perhaps impossible far
the people on the American side of the
Atlantic to appreciate the magnitude of
this gain to the Irish people. It not on
ly leaves for circulation among a booplo
numbering loss than 5,000,000 , an in
creased sum of about 810.000,000 that
otherwise would bo drained out of the
country and spent elsewhere , but it no-
tunlly reduces the Iriah taxation § 3 per
capita. Americana hnvo probably noticed
ono result a lessening of the demands
for the relief of Irish distress. Through
out Ireland , the result is palpable. Poor
people , who for years past have seldom
had a shilling of money in their posses
sion , are now occasionally seen in the
small shops , happy in their ability to
spend an occasional half sovereign. The
general effect upon the temper of the
people is very percoptibln. The farmers
and the shop-keepers who depend on
thorn , nre decidedly bolter "off than they
have boon for several years past. The
other clasa of storo-kenporo , whoso trndo
consists chiefly ia supplying the nobility
nnd landlords , complain bitterly of lnvrd
times. This accounts for the conflicting
reports which now go out from Ireland.
If you go into a first-claas shop you h r
