THE Anglo-Russian war cloud aooma to have rolled by. a man goes gunning after an other In Omaha it ia called dipsomania. Tin : ulreot car strike leads every paper In Ohloga to remark that walking la Mu. MAOKIN , of Chicago , la out of politics. IIo would prefer , however , to bo out of jail. THE Omaha exposition promises to provo a greater aucocoa than any state fair oror held in Omaha. FORMERLY when a nnu had snakes in his boota U vraa calledlm-jams , but now the classical lawyers call It dlpEomanla. THE Hocking Valley minors are now working steadily , and labor nfTiirs appear to bo In a fairly satisfactory condition in that region. AMONCI the numerous candidates for the goTornorship of Georgia are throe odltors. They would rather bo governor than write. THE telephone companies have always objected to profanity , and It Is intimated that they propose to substitute "shool-o" for "holl-o. " JONAS , of Louisiana , has at last been swallowed by the administration whale. Ho has boon appointed collector of cus toms for the district of Now Orleans. Sioox CITY claims a population of 18,530 , an Increase of over 11,000 alnce 1880. It la snfo to soy that the census takers have not overlooked anybody. THE city council ought at least to order flat-etono cross-walks to bo laid on Far- nnm street. It can bo done at small ex pense , and it ia a much-needed improve ment. ment.MR. MR. ADAMS will not return to Omaha for two or three weeks. This will give the viaduct committee of the city council plenty of time to prepare another prayer ful petition. AN exchange Bays that natural gas ia to be used as an illnmlnant in Kansas City. That city has a big supply of it , and its usefulness has already been dem onstrated in the inflated reports of its population. TIIE Mormons continno to rope in con verts from the ignorant classes of Europe. There are now 514 Swedish and Danish converts on route to Utah. The anti- labor- contract Itw ought to be made to apply to those intentional law breakers , LOGICS QUINTIUS Cumins LAJIAK , JR. , has boon appointed stenographer and private secretary to the secretary of the Interior , who has been intimately acquainted with him slnco his childhood , hud entertains a very high opinion of him. THE president has made a Wisconsin man chief justice of Idaho , and baa gone clear to Mississippi to find an editor to fill the position of receiver of public monevfl at Eranoton , Wyoming. The administration is not paying ranch atten tion to the platform recommendation that territorial appointees should bo cit izens ol the territories. FAIINAM street is disfigured by a most unsightly set of telegraph poles. If these poles cannot bo ditpensed with , It Is to be hoped at least that they will bo inhaled , which will greatly Improve their appearance. There Is nothing orna mental about telegraph poles , but at the esmo time they can bo made to look neat and respectable , and that , too , at very llttlo expense. THE citizens of Niagara Falls are mak ing great preparations for the formal opening of the state rciorvatlon at Niag ara on July 15th. The commissioners of the slate reservation will in behalf of the s'ato ot Now York take possession on that day of the lands selected for the preservation of the scenery of the Falls of Niagara. Invitations are being cent oat to prominent citizens all over the country. Two millions of Cincinnati four per con paving bonds have been negotiated at a premium of.Sl.2G per 81,000 , Omaha owes loss proportionately than Cincinnati , has a better credit , and is moro able to moot her obligations , yet eho has no bonds drawing less than six per cent. Under the circumstances , and pnrtlcnlaily now that money is a drug in the eastern mar ket , the Omaha board of trade ought to Lave no difficulty in negotiating the sale of seven per cent bonds for the money needed in thocomtructlonof thopropoied chamber of commerce building. OMAHA'S POPULATION. 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 20,000. 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 Dhon. He killed two birds with ono itono. 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. LADY RANDOOPH CIIUKCUILL , person- t illy conducted the campaign for her t insband'a return to parliament. She I enema a thing or two about politics as G ho is an American woman. Lord | B Jhurchlll made a bargain with her Ba hat she should do all the work of the cam- 1t and have all the glory , if victory 1d lorchod upon her banner. The latest 1 able advices state that she has boon via- 1F 1d orlous. She may bo said to bo the Mrs. F 'ohn A. Logan of English politics. v I I NEW YORK is trying to question there- I [ ability of the Chicago directory census , li rhlch gives that city about 700,000 pop 0 ilation , and yet Now York has the nbllmo cheek to claim a population of ,500,000 when Its directory shows only trifle of over 300,000 narnos. In other rords , Now York runs np a big popula- Ion by multiplying the directory names y 5 , while Chicago has multiplied only y 4 , The f ct is that the usual multiple i 3A , and the lowest 2\ , THAI old fossil , Judge Lambert Tree , I Chicago , was given a new icasa of life ad prominence by being made a candi * ate tgiinst Logan during the lost few allots In the Illinois senatorial conteat. lad it not been for that unexpected In dent he would have remained upon the shelf , where ho was placed years ego. Ho has now been appointed minister to Bel * glum. Incidentally , it strikes us that it Is a llttlo late in the season to transplant such an old Tree. 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 f his colonial cchemes in Africa , Franco Is very naturally annojod , M. o Lesiops has made himself the month- Icco of French chagrin , and prophesies bat unlojs England withdraws from the ind of the Pharaohs the Egyptian dls- nto will end In an Anglo-French war , IP : von Mr. Gladstone , at the time of tbo 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 Franco. " 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 England. 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 , though , the clash in Central Asia will corns. The valiant republic of Hayt' ' , on learning that a single man-of-war was taking our minister to its shores , at once released from confinement the American sltlzsn Mr. Van Bokkelen whom our itato department for a good while back iiad boon trying to get out of confine ment. We rather regret the release. Wo are not anxious for a war of any kind m this continent , but a collision with ; ho republic of Haytl might bo a great hing to the people of that country.
