the circumstances , and pnrtlcnlaily now
that money is a drug in the eastern mar

Wo cannot understand why certain
papers of this state go out of their way
on every possible occasion to attempt to
bolitlla Omahi , and at the earns time
puff outaido cities , and particularly Kan
sas City , Wo should think that every
paper In Nebraska would take pleasure
in assisting to build up the commercial
metropolis of this slato. The growth
and prosperity of Omaha are indicative of
the growth and prosperity of the state.
What helps ono helps the other. Wo are
led to make thoao remarks by several
statements whlh have recently appeared
in some of the state papers , Ono of those
statements Is as follows ;
Omaha has 00,000 population nnd Lincoln
15,000. The first named city has been chim
ing from GO.OCO to 70,000 and the latter
The fact Is that no ono has over claim
ed for Omaha a population of 70,000 ,
nor a population of over GO,000. The
estimates have ranged from 60,000 to
00,000 , and the census , which is now about
completed and will scon bo given to the
public , will , M wo are reliably informed ,
show that Omaha has fully 00,000 people
within her olty limits. This wo believe
to bo an honest enumeration. So far as
wo are concerned wo have always bean
opposed to exaggerating the population
and the commerce of Omaha , for If once
begun it must bo kept up , Omaha ia to
day the largest city in the three atatea of
Iowa , Kansas and Nebraska , Iowa , with
her 2,200,000 population has no city anywhere -
where near as largo as Omiha , and
neither has Kansas , The people and
press of Nebraska certainly ought to be
proud of this growing metropolis , which
wo predict will contain moro than a hun
dred thousand people in 1800.
IN his article on civil service reiorm ,
in the July number of the Nortli Ameri
can llcvicw , Mr. Dorinan B. Eaton ,
president of the civil service commission ,
incidentally stated that ho had in his
possession a letter written by Charles P.
Olson , formerly of Boston but now of
London , offering Congressman Leopold
Morsa § 1COO to secure for him the ap
pointment of consul at Gothenburg , Ger
many. This statement has proved a
black eye to Mr. Olson's prospects.
Olson , it seems , was appointed by the
court of Alabama claims as an expert
witness to examine the books and records
of sundry Insurance companies and Indi
vidual insurers , and to make up sched
ules therefrom to bo need ai testimony
on the adjudication of claims pending be.
fore the court. He was to examine the
books and records and data of certain in
surance companies in this country and
other underwriters In Paris , Antwerp and
London. Ho made this work secondary tea
a general commission business in which
ho Is engaged in London. The consulate ,
which ho is so desirous of obtaining , pays
only about § 2,000 a year , but ho could
afford to use $1,500 of this sum as a
bribe , as ho could , by virtue of the con
sulship , make a big profit by introducing
Americ&n manufactures in Gothenburg.
Unfortunately for Mr. Olson , the article
Df Mr. Eaton met the eye of Mr. Cros-
troll , the prosecuting attorney of the
jourt of Alabama claims , and the result
is that an order has been Issued revoking
ill commissions issued to Olson. It islet
lot very likely that the enterprising
Dlsonwlll push his claims any further
for the Gothenburg consulship. Mr.
Baton did a good work for civil service
reform by his incidental reference to

IN Illinois there is a law providing a
heavy punishment for gambling in grain.
Under this act if the losing party does
lot sue to recover within six months the
imonnt lost , then any other party may
wring suit to recover thrco times the
amount and retain for his own nso one-
half of the sum collected , while the bal
ance goes to the county. This law Is | |
loon to bo tested in qnlto a big case. t .
Dno Edwin Partridge lost $150,000 In tc
> raln gambling , his agents being a well ]
known Chicago commission firm , but ho. 1
Jldn't sue to recover vrlthln the limit of
tix months. Another party now comes
iorward and sues the commission firm for
450,000 , throe times the amount lost by
Partridge , Should ho bo successful in
recovering the amount , which Is not very
ikoly , ho would receive $225,000 , and
, ho county would receive an equal sum , f
Mr. Partridge would only bo entitled to
its witness fees. If this law were en'
orced it would put an end to grain gamb <
Ing in Chicago.

OTHER LANDS THAN OURS.
Proceedings in the British parliament
during the past week have been commonplace -
place and monotonous. The tory min
istry is cautiously feeling its way to avoid
any serious blunder. Even the proposed
bndcot Is being withhold BO far In order
to ascertain whether It can bo asked
from the liberals. The advantage gained
by the latter through the masterly retreat
of Gladstone at a moat critical period Is
now admitted on all bands , There Is
now no doubt that Mr. Gladstone docs
not mean to retire at present from public
life , and docs mean to lend the liberals
in the coming campaign , Moreover , his
health is not only good but very good ,
and his intellectual keenness as great as
over. So that the contest In the fall will
probably bo fully as lively as that in
1870. Gladstone's letter to his old con
stituency of Midlothian announcing
that ho will again bo a candidate
for their suffrages la simply an Inti
mation not only that ho la again
willing to represent that particular
section of his party , but that ho consid
ers it an absolute necessity of the con
tinued existence of that party that ho
should still bo its leader. Soon after his
defeat on the tplrlt-dutios question Mr.
Gladstone said that ho had permanently
retired from public life. And , Indeed ,
the intimation was not unexpected. It
waa known that hla health was seriously
undermined ; that at times ho Buffered
from an ominous physical depression and
prostration ; and that of late his voice
in his case a most miraculous
organ at times almost whol
ly failed him at the critical
moment. The reason for Mr. Glad
stone's reconsideration of hla denial of
further political honors is thereforeobvl -
onr. Ho again CDinca to the front at a
most critical moment in the history of
his party and his country only through
the pressure of absolute party necessity.
Ho comes forward , if possible , to save his
party from the disintegration with which
it is threatened. The question , In view
of a contingency which involves , per
haps , the sacrilico of hla life , Is : Will
Mr. Gladstone succeed in probably this
the last and rnojt heroic effort of hla po
litical history ?
The somatlon of the day in England
centers in the "feelers" put forth by the
tory government In respect to the Irish
question , In the shape of a speech and a
pamphlet from Arthur James Balfour to
his constituents at Hertford. Balfour is
Salisbury's son-in-law , and the now chief
secretary for Ireland , and his utterances
have thus an empliatlc importance in in
dicating that the now administration in
tend to make a bold attempt to form
a majority in parliament by out
bidding the liberals for the sup
port of the semi-detached radicals and
the Parnollltos by a policy of homo rule
for Ireland. Ho declared outright that
ho desired no less than Chamberlain to
BOO Ireland governed by equal law trith
England , and all exceptional legislation
against the Irish abolished forover. In
his pamphlet Mr. Balfonr argues that tbo
necessity of Ireland no less than that of
England demands ita continuance under ;
the Imperial government , but that' '
It should have independent self-govern :
ment , and for this purpose ho advocates
the substitution of the present vice-regal
machinery of an elective central board.
Bow far the Salisbury government will '
go in such a scheme depends upon the
tray In which these tentative propositions
> ra received. But of course coercion i.
trill not bo hoard of , and It is acknow- ! ' *
jdged on all hands that that hideous an-
ithronism , Dublin Oastlo , Is doomed.
Oils Is a wonderful change of front for
Salisbury , for whom no measure of re
pression could be too severe ; and who
ias ( pent his bitterest Invective upon Mr. '
Gladstone for his concessions to Ireland.
Fho conservatives confess to have great
lopes for the coming elections.
Mr. Parnoll will probable servo In par-
lament of tor the next general oleotion as , s
, ho member from a London district In
nrhlch the Irish vote predominates. Mr.
Fnstin Mo Carthy will probably represent
.ho Irish district in Liverpool , and Mr.
C. P. O'Connor is likely to bo tent to
mrliamont by a Glasgow district. Moan-
prhilo Mr. Parnell is busily engaged with
.ho people of Ireland selecting candl-
lates for various districts Blcgar , the
[ ledmonds and other old members will ?
> o the candidates in the north of Ireland
ind In other districts whlcb are consid
ered doubtful. The districts which have
in overwhelming or even a safe national-
st majority will take candidates from the
low men who must bo called into public
ifo in consequence of the increased
lational power which results from the
ate seta extending the franchise and as-
Ignlng representation to districts in the
leu of the rotten borough aystom ,
Lord Salisbury's ministry seems dotor-
nlned to begin an energetic foreign policy
, B soon as possible , The Mahdl is to bo
mashed. This is apparently in compll-
tnco with the demand ot Sir Garnet
rVolasloy , who wishes to have the oppor-
unity given him for gaining the laurels
hat slipped bis grasp in the boastful ex-
icdltlon to Khartoum. But "appir-
mtly" only , for the determination to re-
tow the Soudan ompilgn by the con-
ervativo ministry la in reality brought '
ibont by the attitude cf France ,
d. Waddington has asked Lord Sails-
inrto fix an early data for the with-
rawftl of the British trcopj from Egypt ,
? ho Engl'sh premier's ' response to this
lemand is found in the renewed rap-
irochomont between London and Berlin ,
rhicb , though apparently directed against
lusila , is in fact aimed at France.
'rlnco Bismarck bas always advised
Ingland to " stick to Egypt. " In return '
o wishes free scope for the development

o Lesiops has made himself the month-
Icco of French chagrin , and prophesies

nto will end In an Anglo-French war , IP :

osphore Egypt Ion business , when he U
rdered the Guards to disembark at at
lox&ndria , aw the danger to Brit- atM
h predomlnence in E ypt threat-
led by France , and the conserva- m
ves are naturally not loth to teLi
illow the line marked out by their pro- j Li
eceisors In cilice , in guarding British
itorests in connection with the safety of up
10 Suez canal. The tens of the EUR-
sh press during the recent Suez con-
ess In Paris waa not to be mistaken on
lis point , England h undoubtedly la un
krnoit in her determination to main- Jt
( aln her military footing In
Egypt , and France , though she
may resent British stubborn-
ncs' , has certainly no one to blsnin but
herself In not assuming , when eho had
the chance , a part of the military control
thcro. Lost opportunities seldom return ,
either to men or n&tlone , and Franco will
find It almost impossible to make good the
slna of omission committed by M , do
Freyclnot In 1882.
Lord Salisbury's determination to con
test the Inclination of M. do Lotseps to
"bestride Iho narrow waterway llko a
Colotsus , " and of Franco to reassert any
commanding influence in Egypt , has un
doubtedly received its inspiration from
Berlin ; and the threatened rosumptlouof
the campaign in the Soudan by England
can only have for Its object the keeping
of sufficient troops in Egypt to bo ready
for emergencies , in view of "tho anger of
Russia is continuing her preparations
for war. A thousand men are a work on
the Trans-Caspian railroad which ex
tends from Askabad toward Sarakhs.
Eight hundred men are employed In the
later place erecting fortifications and
building barracks for troops. It is also
reported that the Russians are building
a bridge over the Mnrghab river , which
flows pint Ponjdeh and Morv.
This work is not done with a peaceful
intent. It is simply part nnd parcel of
the design which Russia has followed for
the last tivo years or moro. Steadily dur
ing all that tlmo aholjaa had her eyes
upon the Gatoa of India. Persistently
she has pursued ono object in central
Asia. Until Russia can so menace India
that Enghnd will not dare to protect
Turkey and Constantinople , Unsslwn
ambition will not bo satisfied , It was
for this purpose ) that the Russian army
was advanced beyond the Caspian sea.
It was with this in view that Askabad ,
Tijend , Morv , Sarakhs and Pond job were
successfully taken. It Is in pursuance of
this original purpose that the railroad late
to bo extended , the Mnrghab bridged
and Sarakhs fortified.
The change in the English ministry may
alter the policy of England , but it does
not affect the policy of Russia. The people -
plo of England and America think of the
accession of the conservatives to power
with reference to its general effect upon
England , Russia watches ttoalthily ,
like a cat , to see ono thing only , and that
is how her schema of conquest in Central
Asia will bo affootod by the change in
Lord Salisbury and Lord Randolph
Churchill were especially severe in their
denunciation of Rnseia during the Glad
stone administration. It was therefore )
thought by some parsons that Russia
would , after Lord Salisbury had assumed
the government , demand an explanation
of the remarko made by him and Lord
Randolph Churchill. But Russia Is too
much in oirneat for that. She Is deter
mined , if possible to secure Herat
peaceably , if she can ; forcibly , if she
must. She Is willing to forgot the in
sults which wcro cast upon her by the
conservatives when they were out of
power , if she can keep them qnlot now
that they are In power. Sooner or later ,
