THE Farnam street paving is at last
being pushed vrith sonic vigor. The con
tractors ought to make every possible ef
fort to finish the work by the 1st of
August. The business men on that
street expect the contractors to leave no
atone unturned in their endeavors to
complete the job this month.
JOHN B. FINCH , the famous temper
nnco agitator , who always has bcon i
staunch democrat , on national issues , is
at Chicago to help the bourbons in the
construction of their platform. Mr.
Finch will urge the insertion of a plank
pledging the party to submit the prohi
bition 'question to the people whenever
they may desire the privilege of voting
fofprohibitory constitutional amendment ; .
Wo apprehend Mr. Finch will bo rudely
advised to mind hla own business.
THE appointment of Mr. W. J. Broatch
as a member of the Missouri river com
mission will bo received with satisfaction
Tjy the citizens of Omaha. It is a sub
stantial and gratifying recognition by the
president , of the commercial importance
of this city as the metropolis of the Mis
souri valley , and places Nebraska upon a
fair footing in securing her rightful pro
portion of the appropriation for the propo
sed improvements of the Missouri rivor.
"While TUB BEK does not propose to re
tract ono word of its denunciation of the
political methods resorted to by Mr.
Broatch in his late combination with J ohn
M. Thurston wo do not hesitate to ex
press the belief that Mr. Broatch will
discharge the important trust imposed
upon him as member of the Missouri
river commission creditably. lie is an
active , energetic business man , with ex
cellent executive ability. If ho can devote
sufficient to his oflicoho will no doubt become
como a valuable factor in the solution of
the problem of improvingtnavigation and
protecting river towns and cities from
dcstru ctivo floods.
THE lcw York Times pays the fol
lowing compliment to the successor of
the late Bishop Clarkson :
The Jlov. Dr. E. N. Totter , aa wo
loam from a trustworthy source , has ac
cepted his election to the Bishopric of [
Nebraska. This sudden translation of the
newly elected president of Ilobert college -
lego plunges that seat of learning again
into a perplexity from which it Boomed
to have found a satisfactory escape. The
Diocoao of Nebraska is , however , to bo
congratulated with little or no reserve.
In the unfortunate disputes with reference -
once to Dr. Potter's administration as
president of union it was not and could
not bo denied that ho had rendered the
college very substantial oorvico in excit
ing interest and raising money in its bo-
half. The qualities demanded for work
of ( his kind are these cniofly required of
n bishop of the Protestant Episcopal
church in a now atato like Nebraska ,
which is for most purposes n Bishopric
inparlibus. It is not to bo doubted
that the now Bishop Potter , who will bo
the fourth of his name and kindred in
the American Episcopate , and the third
of these now living and exorcising epis
copal functions , will give his diocese an
oncrgotio and successful administration.
The only serious element which
threatens is the possible restriction of
banking accommodation throughout the
country , as the result of the financial
disturbance at the monoUry centres.
This accommodation merchants have
boon accustomed to < rely upon , and as
capital is largely locked up in assets not
at once realizable , a restriction of credit
is a serious matter. If , in Wall street ,
values continue very low and confidence
only ulowly returns , thia stringency in
money may result in torious enibarass-
xncnt. But , with the expectation of a bet
tor condition of things , the hope is a is
reasonable ono , that the ordinary busi-
JIMS facilities which the commercial
community have a right to expect , will
bo afforded to thorn. 'fho restriction
which has thus far taken place in loans ed
has been enormous , but it has boon ro-
.spondod to in a manner that is astonish
ing in view of its suddenness. It speaks
well for the general soundness of trade ,
that a change so violent has bcon '
brought about with casualties so few , .
This consideration ought largely to in
fluence the growth of returning confidence
which recent events have done so much
to retard. Beyond tbo distrust which
prevails , it is difficult to designate what all
clement of prosperity is nocdod in the
prospects of the country. Low prices
are by no means an unmixed evil. Specu
lation has had a eovoro check , and of
greater chances exist now for making
Jnouey legitimately than almost over bs-
Jore in tiroei o * pcac ? and prosperity ,
THE 1WSIM ! ® } < 0rr/OOA" .
In spite of , eloomy forebodings and
commercial stagnation the mo t acute
observers and best informed financiers of
this country tnko a hopeful view of the
business oullook. The decided
increase of failures in the United
States and Canada for the quarter ending
with July 1st was by no moans unex
pected. The depression in trade and in
dustry has boon well nigh universal lor
nearly two years and the terrible shrinkage -
ago of speculative securities very natur
ally contributed to the extraordinary
liquidation. But after all , the disturb
ance was in the main of a local character ,
chiefly confined to Wall street stock job
bers. The disasters to legitimate com
mercial enterprises have boon surpris
ingly few.
This opinion is fully confirmed by the
report of Messrs. II. G. Dun t Co.'s
Mercantile Agency covering the first six
months of 1884.
According to this report there was in
that period an increase of 873 failures as
compared with the first six months of
188'J , or about 18 per cent. The total
number was 5D10. The increase in the
amount of liabilities was from § 00,000 ,
000 to 812-1,000,000 , or 88 per cent. Of
this increase of liabilities , however , $18-
000,000 , or 83 per cent , are chargehblo
to the city of Now York , and only § 18-
000,000 to the remainder of the countiy.
In other words , the increase of liabilities
in the first half of 1881 over the first half
of 1883 , outside of the city of Now York ,
has boon from Sr 5,000OUO to 507,000.-
000 , or only about 22 per cent , instead
of 88 per cent. , which is shown with
Now York included. It must bo remembered -
bored , also , that this Is but a rough com
parison. Only the amount of liabilities
is given , or can bo given. The result
might bo quito different could wo know
the not assets of the insolvents , or the
terms on which liquidation has boon or is
to bo effected. There Is little reason to
doubt that with this moro complete com
parison , the extent to which the very
jroat increase of liabilities shown in the
reports has boon caused by the recent
troubles in Wall itrcot would appear
moro marked than it now docs.
It is true that prominent financiers ,
great promoters , and mcir in high posi
tions have boon forced to e u ecu in b ; it is
equally true that the shrinkage in the
wealth of many rich men has bcon very
groat. But it ia a fact that , to a great
extent , the disasters of the year have
boon confined to the wealthy class , and
with but little interference with legiti
mate traders in moderate circumstances.
The panic which wo have paeso'l through
has bcon well described as " the rich
man's panic. " It is a matter of signifi
cant moment that , considering all the
violent fluctuations that have occurred ,
the enormous shrinkage in values , and
the severe restrictions which monetary
institutions have found it necessary to
enforce , that failures have not boon moro
numerous. So that , instead of being depressed
pressed by the figures , thorois yet comfort
to bo found in the fact that the rank and
file of legitimate business men have with
stood a shock so severe. They have not
only boon able to respond to their obliga
tions promptly , but are in a shape to
take advantage of a revival of trade ,
which must certainly soon follow. He-
calling the depression which has existed
or , nearly two years , it would scorn
that a condition of preparedness had boon
reached by the mercantile community
for the events which in the last six months
have occurred , if there had not boon
a gradual restriction in the volume of
trade , a slow but steady decline in the
values of almost every unset , and an
defined yet existing apprehension aa to
the future , the events of the last few
months would assuredly have brought
about troubles almost unparalleled. This
view of the cane is best illustrated by a
comparison of the present atato of things
with the condition that existed in 1873.
The panic of that year was like a
thunderbolt out of n clear sky ,
while the panic of 1881 has como as if
expected , and hence was moro or lean pro
vided for.
Taking it altogether , the result' of the
six months will not bo considered wholly
unfortunate if the lessons which have
been taught have their proper effect , nnd
the legitimate business of the country
not moro intorfsrcd with than at present
ont appears ,
The injurious effect of recent oventa to
commerce will bo materially lessened by
the possibilities contained in the promise
of the growing crops , and the hopes entertained -
tortainod that a year of great production
will bo vouchsafed to us. There ia as
much money in the land aa there was six
months ago. The troubles have boon
confined to narrow limits , as compared to
the wido-sproad ratio of success possible
to thoKo who pursue the legitimate paths
of enterprise so plainly marked as availa
ble in thin vast country. No wido-sproad
desolation has swept over us , and there n
moro to bo hoped for from a year's u
progress and natural growth , supple \
mented by enormous immigration , and t
the full use of transportation and facili-
ties of communication , than is to bo fear ii
from anything that has yet occurred , iit iio
rho trade of the country has not boon t
interfered with the d
materially , internal
udobtodneas of merchants is not exces lifl
sive ; and the ability to absorb and pay 0
'or goods , the basis of all legitimate
.rado , was never greater than now. The
apprehension which has existed has
caused stocks of goods , in the hands of
retailers , to bo brought down to a narrow
limit. The low prices which prevail for
claztes of staples , the cheap living
which the poor ought to bo able to com
mand , both in the way of food and cloth
ing , ought soon to bring about a revival
business , and a larger demand for the
products of every kind. It is true that >
margins of profit have boon reduced to a i
uiiunun : , and that fgpcneca of busm > is
and living ou ht to bo adjusted to accord
with this dfcclino. This process has nl
ready made some progress , and whllo
competition is severe , and values decreased
od , there is still likely to bo a fairly profitable
itablo demand for merchandise and manufacture
ufacturo , with greater ability than over
to supply the demand , and some certain' '
ty of safety in transactions based upon
legitimate needs. Under such clrcum
stances It seems possible that the b.alanco
of the year will have within its results
moro satisfactory than the [ first six
months have brought.
NorwimsTANMNo the fact that the
California delegation is emphatically pro
nounced against Judge Field , n dolcga
tion of outside skirmishers from Cali
fornia , composed principally of his mon
opoly friends , nro endeavoring to have
his name presented to the democratic
national convention. Among these skir
mishers is John P. Irish , who is a carpet
bagger from Iowa. Judge Field's sup
porters , although having no voice in the
convention , have pa&sod resolutions to
the effect that the recent "affront" offered
to him by the California democratic state
convention was not an oxproaaion of the
democratic party of that state. Those
resolutions will go for nothing , as no
man was over sot down upon moro severely
nnd unanimously than was Judge Field
in the California state convention. His
monopoly tendencies were too well-
known to bo overlooked by the monopoly'
ridden people of California.
Tin : Springfield Jlcpublican says that
collogu degrees are getting tbo cheap to
bo valucdvory highly , as the honors of
our colleges are allotted by boards of
trustees , made up of the butcher , the
baker nnd the candlestick-maker , and
such bodies of course make up the high
est kind of an academic court. Then ,
too , th'o power to grant degrees exorcises
a powerful fascination for the mon in
trusted with it , and they sometimes resent -
sent suggestions to the effect that oconow
my in the distribution is desirable from
every point of viow. This is a big coun
try , ita colleges are many and struggling
and the temptation to advance the mate
rial interests of institutions through the
moro or loss open barter of degrees is not
always resisted. All these causes and
many more combine to make honors in
deed easy , and reform in this matter
comes very slowly.
The Slctltil Voted byiho
turo I'rcBoiitecl to IJer before
: i,0 ( ) ( ) People.
BOONK , Iowa , July 4. The modal
voted to Kato Shelley , Iowa's Grace Dar
ling , waa presented to her at the Ogdou
this afternoon in the presence 01 about
3OoO pooplo. Gov. Sherman was to
make the presentation speech , but was
unable to bo present , and it was made
by Mr. Walker Given , his private secre
tary. After remarks by the lion. J. A.
T. IIull , secretary of state , who intro
duced Kato Shelley and gave a short
sketch of her heroic deed the night of
G , 1881 , Mr. Given made the presenta
tion speech as follows :
The governor is unavoidably detained
elsewhere and I am directed to act as his
agent in presenting to Miss Kato Shelley
the modal of honor awarded by the general
al assembly. Already the story of hero
ism pictured on this medal has boon told
in many lands and in many tongues. Safe
in her homo that wild July night , yet a
with anxious fear for othorn , Kato Shelley
loy heard the cracking of the pilot-engine
through the trostlcwork near and know fi
at once the double need of help for tno fie
mon in the wreck and warning to the o
coming express. Forth she went into
the night nnd the storm , making her way
amid sheets of fire and bursts of horrid
thunder and roaring wind and rain , across
the valley nnd on pvor the high , long
bridge , with no footing but the skeleton
timbers , no light but the flashing of the
clouds , the tempest above nnd the flood
beneath , struggling on her perilous wiy a
to call help and signal the overdue ex
press. A danger bravely mot , and
the laurel-wreath was gained for
an humble homo. The legend
of Kato Shelley is registered
withtha deeds of Ida Lewis and Grace
Darling , nnd proves hoi- equal to the
heroines of history , bravo as the Maid cf
Saragassa , with a devotion generous as
Florence Nightingale , and a motive to
compare even with the Venetian maid , "
Arnaudo do Uocau. Glorious in history
ia the courage of these gentle spirits
the bravery of woman when the self- of
devotion of her heart is Inspired to
heroic action. 'JYua beyond the moan
ing of the poet ia it , that "tho bravest
are the tundorost , the loving nro the an
daring. " This modalj picturing Kato
Shelley's deed of heroism , and stamped
with the Iowacontofarms and the laurel
wreath , is now presontrd as the offering ,
not of parsons or of claasos , but of the
atato aa representing all the pooplo.
And to Miss Kato Shelley wo can only
lay ; Accept it n d > i y tlio best of bloes-
ings go with it.
Kato Shelley returned thanks through
her old teacher , Prof. J. D. Ourran , of
Angus , who replied to the presentation or
epooch in well timed remarks. The modal -
al is a heavy gold ono costing $200. The
design on the face represents Kato cross
ing the DcsMoinos iron bridge amid
storm and lightning flashes , and above
are the words in blue enamel : "Heroism ,
Youth , Humanity. " On the obverse is
the : following inscription : "Presented
by iho state of Iowa to Kato Shelley ,
with the thanks of the Gonorall Assembly
in recognition of the oourago and devotion
of a child of ID years , whom neither thu
terror of the elements nor the fear of
death could appal in her efforts to save tl
human lifo during the terrible storm and tldi
flood in the Des Moines valley the night dini
of July C , 1881. ni

Den Mcinca Loader , July 4 ,
Twontynino yeara ago to-day the firsl
tompcranco law in Iowa went into effect.
It was known as the Maine law. Subse
quently , "CB a BOD to the Dutch , " in the
language of a republican representative
in the legislature , the law wan amended
so as to permit tlio manufacture of ale ,
wine and boor. Prom that time to the
present the question of beverages has
boon over present in Iowa , and over
troublesome. It haa boon the boto noir
of politics , the ted flag shaken out before
each election. Two yoara ago an election
waa hold to determine whether the state
constitution should absolutely prohibit
the sale of anything in thl shape of
malt , ' vinous of distilled liquors. The
prohibition amendment was adopted
by a llargo majority. Subsequently the
the supreme court sot asldo the amend
ment , and last winter the legislature
pnactod a prohibitory law , which wont
into . eflcct last night at 12 o'clock. As
thia article is neither argument nor
prophesy the record of legislation on this
topic may cloao right ho'ro.
began quietly enough in Dos Moincs ,
although there was a good deal of curi
osity manifested on the streets. Knots
of men gathered in the hotels , saloons
and other places of public resort , discuss
ing the probable result , of the movement ,
but there waa no especial excitement. A
noticeable fact was that during the day
there was loss drinking than usual. Up
to G o'clock in the evening a majority of
the saloon keepers reported their sales
had bcon less by the drink than usual.
The bottle trade , however , waa enor
mous. Ono Walnut street saloon passed
over the counter between noon yester
day and 12 last night , 211 pint bottles of
were full of patrons most all day. Long
bofDro night every cask had been.filled
and shipped to customers out of town.
After the four o'clock trains loft not a
package could bo had. It must have
boon a very thirsty day for our country
cousins. Thobrovrorlca } kept on liana
only enough of the 'iquor of Gambrinus
to supply their retail demand , and to
day will lind most of them without a
gallon in stock. Several , and perhaps all
the brewers are preparing to turn their
breweries into cider works , although
some ( have applied for county permits
under the pharmacy act ,
drove a thriving trade over the bar last
ovoning. It seemed aa if the entire city
had become suddenly athirst. Among
tho-customora were not a few farmcis
that had como to the city to a sort of
watch mooting , to see the law go into
ellect. : As early aa noon some of the
larger saloons were out of some favorite
brands of the exhilarating fluids , but
that madn no especial difference. The
reporter was in the ack room of one of
the , largest establishments in town , in
terviewing the proprietor on the situa
tion. Said ho , in answer to a question
iI to the amount of stock'ho would have
loft. "I have sold over fcvo barrels since
yesterday , a laigo part of it by the cask
and jug , " .pointing to. a pile in the cor
ner.Tho reporter began to inspect the labels
bols , but the proprietor objected to "giv
ing away" his patrcm , nn'd'iho scribe saw
only ono on a four-gallon cask bearing
the address of a prominent attorney in
Dos Moincs , an ardent prohibitionist.
iiti 1'vo only half a barrel or so left , " said
the saloon man , "prime old rye. " Just
then n barkeeper came in with a decanter
and said , "vvo'ro out of brandy. " The
vessel was filled with whisky and returned
turned to the bar. A gin decanter waa
filled from the same barrel while the re
porter remained and whisky flasks ilium
orablo. :
had their hands full. Each car leaving
the city looked like a pottery on wheels.
The Kookuk train distributed C8 pack
ages between that city 'nnd Ottumwa.
The Hook Island west bound train took
away 112 packages , varying in size from
modest looking gallon jug , labled "gas
oline" to a full sized boor keg honestly
marked. The Northwestern , Wnbaah
and all otnor routes alno carried away
their quota of tanglefoot. It is by no
moans a wild estimate to say that ono
thousand packages of malt and spirltoua
liquors.TV ere carried out of the city yes
terday. The Wintorsot & Indianola
trains were well loaded. The favorite
marks on the jugs for the branch was
"castor oil , "
wno policed by two hundred specials , half
whom were employed by the state , and
llawkoyo insurance companies , which
put on ono hundred policemen to guard of
against fire , and the mayor had engaged
equal number of specials. Many of
the latter wore reported to bo drunk be
fore midnight and the town was reason
ably quiet , although there wan more
drinking during the night than was over
known in Dos Albinos before during the
same number of hours. The saloons
closed at 11:80 : all over the city and in

FUEMONT , Nob. , July 0. An old gen-
llomnn noted for his piety , remarked the
day following the oyclono of Wednesday
night , the "devil was at the bottom of
lmt fearful storm. " Reasoning from
.hat basis it would bo safe to say that
some ether being just the opposite to the
devil ordered the weather for Friday , Ju-
4th , 1881. It was certainly a lovely
, and contributed in a great measure
making the celebration a grand suc
cess. The grand procession which was

as fine as over seen in the state , Mu

The Fremont normal and business
college , the laying of the corner stone of
which constituted ono of the most strik
ing features of the day , i the outgrowth
of a determination on the part of our
best citizens to have a first class nornal
school under local management , and in
no respect subject to the dictation of
state politicans ; least of all , the Lincoln
ring. It is a fact which needs no further
proof , that appropriations to atato insti
tutions of whatever nature must all pay
tribute to Lincoln lobbyists. Several
years ago Fremont made an effort to get
an appropriation for a normal school , but
aa usual got loft. But now she has
passed that crisis , and being of sound
mind and body , has determined to put
her hands into her own wallet and own
and control an institution fashioned nnd
conducted on business principles , It
will aim first of all , at supplying the kind
of education most in demand good
training for business lifo , for public
school teaching , for industrial , art and
ether practical purposes and next at
making the expense of such training as
little as is consistent with wholesome
living and thorough teaching. The cere
mony of laying the corner stone of this
institution as conducted by the Odd Fol
lows , in full regailia , was attractive and
imposing. The building is throe stories
in height besides the fourth story roomii
the tower.
From the ground to the extreme top ol
the tower will bo about eighty feet. On
the ground the building measures 74 feet
from east to wont , and GO feet from nortl
to southand fronts south toward Military
avonuo. It will contain , whoncompleted
from top to bottom , twelve recitation
rooms , besides the art studio , and music
department , principal's residence rooms
and office. All arrangements for the
boarding of students will bo in ether
buildings. Tito walls of the main build
ing are now half finished , the corner
stone having boon laid on the top of the
basement wall at ono corner of the east
extension which h&d boon loft for this
purpose. The contractor is determined
to push the work to completion in time
for the opening of the fall term , Octoboi
21st. The building , when completed and
furnished , will represent about § 20,000 ,
and the aito , covering over four acres , the
gift E , n. Barnard , ia worth at least
82,000 moro. Other buildings now pro
jected for the use of professors and stu
clouts , nnd intended to bo finished before
the school opens , will cost over § 5OOC
