She is slightly dl figured , but still in the ring. THE removal of the fences from tin public domain will throw an Immonc quantity of necond-hand wlro on tin market. Ttinix Is a vast difference between tin number of appointments that Nobraski democrats expect and the number tha the/ will got. TUB order of President Cleveland dl rooting the removal of the foncoa from the public domain may bo called a blow at the birbod wlro industry. The cattl men will no donbt have the sympathy o the fence mannfacturora. Tun oily oouncil very properly refuses to stand the ralso of rent far the jail. I Mr. Pattoo instats on an increase of rent the CDunoll proposoa to vacate the prcm Isos. Mr. Pttoo will now probably do clde to let wtll onoogh alone. IT hai been Bald of the Italian govern ment lottery that it ia a tax o : : fools , The same Is true of any other lottery , and as there are millions of fooh in the world Da Lrsipps proposes to tax them bj mo ma cf n grand lottery sohomo for the benefit cf the Panama canal. Now that the mayor has ordered thai the front dcora of ualooca must bo cloacc on Saudny ? , the naloonkeopcra whose places have iu r ar entrance will bo obliged ta have bick doors put in. Wo venture to say , however , that an Omaha Hilooii without a back door is a very rare thing. THE pound ordinance has not bsen In force moro than two weeks , but already an attempt is being made to amend II so as to make an exception In favor o : milch cows. It is to bo hoped that the council will not now tinker that ordln anco to death. It ij a good law am ought to bo strictly enforced just as stands , It w&s intended to put an end to tha pasturing of cowa in the streets and trcapaselng on private lawns and yards Tin : Etrurlo , of the Canard line , IIBS juat beaten the record between Now York and Qaeenstown , making the passage in nix days , five hours , and thlrty-fivo mln- utoa. Not long ago thii same ehlp made a little moro than nineteen knots ornboul twenty-two statute miles , on hour , for three consecutive days. The Now York Herald very appropriately calls her the 'Maud S. of the ocean. SENATOR , TELLER , who while secretary of the interior permitted the mtking ol the oittlo leases In the Indian territory , is now trying to hedge on that question. Ho denies that ho sanctioned the leases , hat that ho specifically stated iu his report of 1883-4 that all rights were reserved by the government to remove the cattlemei whenever and in any manner that it taw illt , cither on complaint of tbo Indians or at Its own option. Senator Teller has .demonstrated his ability to crawl through a \oiy email hole. Two or'threo policemen ought to bo dmmediatoly detailed to do special duty as aanltarp Inspectors. Their duties should ba to carefully inspect the hack yardi and alloya , aud wherever they find on ac cumulation of Clth , garbage' , or any other nufatnco , dulotorlous to health , to order iho earne to be immediately removed While tha builne a center of the city Is fa a very cleatrly condition , as much can not ba said of tlio ccsidenco portion. The collection of gsi'bigo as now carried on la not eatlsfaotory , .and thii service should &t once ba materially IncroEssd , In view of the ll&blllty of t ho appearance of chol era too much cinnot , ' ba done in the way of putting the city in a-clean and healthy condition. THE difficulty concer.ttiog Iho B. & M. headquarters building hiv been cdjotted , and the bricklayers will rosnmo work , They propose , however , to give general notice- that hereafter they ivill not work upon any building iu which convict dressed stone , or any other n-jstcrial pre pared by convict labor , la ui'ed. They certainly hitvo taught a leison ittt will not noon ha forgotten in this city. Any contractor who hereafter Iu any w j pat- ronzs or encoungoi tha importation and 4iio of convict products will have io suffer the oomequencci. If the work men of the United States follow tha o.x- ample tet by the Onuha bricklayers they will soon drive convict labor and products almost entirely from the market. The courco puraued in this city It cor- ialnly more effective than the attempt * to remedy the otil through Icglthtlon , whloh ia a slow prccass , bat at the pirao time tbo cflbrtfl to * tfcuro propsr Ivgirli. of iion upon thii nutter should not by any of bo abandoned , Mf * ) < fVt UNFAIR TREATMENT OF OMAUA The Chicago railway managers have sot down open the Omaha raorchanta an < shippers who dared to make complaints regarding discriminations against this city. This Is not only < ho case with re gard to the complaints concerning the discrimination practiced by the South western pool association , hat It is also the case t ith reference to the discrimin ations of the Butlirgton road ou th sonth end the Ncrihwcstern on th north. These latter discriminations ar simply outrageous. It is a fact that In order to got the long haul , the Burlington will carry a car of llvo stock from Red Olond to Chicago for less than it will transport it from lied Cloud to Omaha. It is also a fao that the Northwestern will carry llv flock from West Point , Valentino , am other places InTSebraska , to Chicago at ; Ceis into than it will from ' ho name point to Omaha. Thus la Omaha practical ! ; ehnt oat from the north and south , am her only tributary territory Is that whic la ndj scent to the Union Pacific. The re suit Ja that onr stock yards and packln houses are made to suffer material dam ago. One would have supposed tha Omaha's protest would have received fal consideration and that eho would hav been accorded just treatment , hut 1 Boome that wo have boon eadly mlatakci According to the special telegram from Chicago to the BEE , Commiaslone Falthorn , in whom wo have no fait whatever , has decided that Omaha mua grin and bear it. Ho virtually eaya tha thoBarllngtonandNorthwestornmnycon tlnuo In tholr efforts to Injure Omaha and that our stockyards and packln houses must not look to thosa roads fo relief or justice. This great and power fal commissioner , < in whcso hands th fate of Omaha scorns to have bee placed by some mysterious influence has Issued his pronnnclamcnto that th Burlington & Missouri and Sioux City Pacific roada cannot como into Omaha , a It would divert business from the throng ! lines. Commissioner Falthorn , however acting nndor the direction of the rail roads , graciously permits the Union Pa cifio to stop consignments of llvo stock a the Omaha stock yards long enough t ascertain If there are any salon to bi made there , and if not the llvo ntook i sent on to Chicago on a through consign inent. But It appaars that stock billed at the Union Pacific's pro portion of the through rate to Omaha and afterirnrvd reblllod to Chicago cage , must piy the local rate from Oma ha. This ruling will ba equivalent to an order to the owners of the stock yarda t ( retire from business. 'Wo hope there li some mistake about this matter , but 1 : there Is nor , then it Is about tlino to hole an indignation meeting and take acma action. A GOOD WORD FOR KEILEY. When Mr. Kailey was appointed mln later to Italy some ono forthwith rakcc up an old speech which ho made in Rich mend eotna years ago , denouncing King Vicar Emmanuel as a tyrant and usurper and declaring the occupation of Rome by the Italian forces to bo an get of oppres sion of the p > ps and the church. This speech waa ropubllshed and commented oai from Malno to California , and public opinion Influenced by leading papers whoso expressions were repeated and on- doraed by the country press as la usual ! ] the case was moulded ngnlna Mr. Kelley , and with al most ono accord the people said that Mr , Kelley waa not a proper person to represent thii country at th Italian court. The Italian minister com municatad all these facts to his horn government , and the result was an Intl matlon that Mr. Kelley would not bo re ceived , althongh King Victor Emmanue had climbed tbo golden ctolrs and boon succeeded by his son Humbert. Mr Keller , rather than take the chances o being cnubbcd by the son of Victor Em manuel , resigned hi ] appointment. Soon afterwards ho was appointed mlniater t Austria , and now lol and bahold ! tlu country rejects Mr. Kelley because , for sooth , of the friendly relations existing between Italy and Austria. If there over was n flimsy excuao for rejecting a minister this Is ono. Mr. Keiley , who has been driven from pillar to post , and has bcon inado tbi target of heavy editorials and the sharp shooting paragraphs of would-bo wits throughout the length and breadth of the land , returns to Atnerlcs a very much abused man. And nov wo are told that 1 Is understood at tbo state department tba Mr. Ketloy'a career as a diplomatist is a an end , BO far as this administration Is concerned. If this Is true , It only adding insult to Injury But whether Mr. K lloy is. provided with a foreign berth or not , the adminle tralion will bo lacking in back-bone If it does not Bay to Austria that she must ao oept Keiley'or no one , and that If she oDH not eccept him the must withdraw icr minister from this country. It doea look ai If the administration Is yielding too mush to the cHete moairehles of the old world , and bending the knee to roy ally. It is shout time that onr govern ment assert its independence , and com pel foreign countries to accept such men a * wo send to them as our repre entathcj , or else sever A 11 diplomatic elatlons with them. The adralnlstr * . Ion jndges of the fitness of iti foreign iplomata. The present admJnUtratlon ccmcd Mr. Kelley a BulUblo man to ho eprotent this country in Austria , and It c oot for that monarchUl government to question what Mr. KelUy raoy have stud yaars ago rfgaralng Italy. Ti'iia la llio iirzt lima that wo have ever hccra of foreign government questioning the In- aU'.ouablo right of free tpeech on the port an i an Araorloftn citizen. The attitude t6r Auittb towards Keilcy is aim- ng ply a picco cf Inexcusable Impudence which should not bo tolerated by our government. If the administra tion frero to look up the antecedents of the foreign diplomats now In this country it would in all probability find that some of them In their eerier have uttered ten- limonts denunciatory of republican Insti tutions , and particularly these of the United States' Yet no ono supposes that on that account they wonld bo requested to withdraw from this country. They certainly wonld bo permitted to remain undisturbed so long as they attended strictly to the business for which they werocent hero. THE shooting ot Mr. Outright , of the Plattsmouth Journal , WAS the result of the publication of a sensational article seriously reflecting upon the character of an estimable young hdy. The article was baaed upon n most unfortunate mis take. In justice to Mr. Outright it is but fair to nay that his friends declare that ho was ready , when it had been shown that ho had made a grievous blan der , to make every reparation , and that the editor of the Journal promised to make a full explanation and npology , yet the father of the young lady doomed it ncccuary to shoot Mr. Outright. This may have been some temporary satisfaction to the exasperated father , but now that bo has had time to reflect upon his haaty act ho no doubt has como to the conclu alon that the explanation and apologies that have since bcon made by the Jour' nal are n great deal moro satlcfaotary , and will tend nurd to the correction of the terrible mistake than if ho had shot Outright a dczm times and killed him , It certainly Is a most unfortunate affair for all partloi concerned. It shows that too much care and discretion cannot be exercised In the publication of sensational articles involving the reputation of per sono. Wherever there is the least doubt the accused should have the bandit of that doubt , and particularly where the reputation of a woman la at stake. It is better that a thousand " /sensations" / should ba suppressed thin that ono Inno cent person ahould bo made to snflor. IN dlscnsilng the recent strike agilnat the double-header method of running trains , the Chicago Herald says that If operating expenses must bo reduced per- hap3 there are other directions In which the trimming could bo done inoro justly and to better advantage. It advocates a lopping off at the top first , and its re marks on this subj act coincldo with those of the BEE in rogaid ttho recent re duction of working hours on the Union Pacific. The Herald For Instance , the salaries of the general officers might bo scaled , oven if the number of such employes is not fuund much too largo. As a rule the general oflicora of railways are able men , but not overaurdencd with work. They have congenial employment , other op portunities for making money , and are re quired to undergo no risk of life or limb , Taking as an example ono of the largest rail ways in the Chicago system , and one , hap pily , which baa BO fur had nothing to do with double-headers , it la found that a dozen general officers draw salaries averaging § 8,450 , a year each , while something iko 900 brakemen must bo content with yearly earnings of 6529 each. Surely tha general offisera of this road could bear a reduction of their ea'ariea without cuf- Eering. The goner ; ! officer whoso pay equals that of Bixteen brakemen , should bo among the first to feel the rigor of economy. In- veatigation in detail would doubtloos ebow that , while the cent of transportation has been steadily reduced in keeping with the 'ing oil In ratoa , the poorly paid have invariably - variably suffered first. Heaven and the struggling waga workers know that Che earnings of the men of muscular toil have shrunk with the decline of prices. It i ) Quite possible that the salaries of the managers and their chief aides are not yet ad justed to the era of cheapness , DR. MILLER , who continues to assart with periodical frequency that Sjtmuel J. Tlldon was elected president , will no doubt perano the following from the Philadelphia Record with aomo inter est : Tears choke onr typo as we read In the Oinaha JlcraU that "Grover Cleveland is the only mau now living tint waa elected to the Presidency. " This , from the paper of Dr. George li , Miller , tha Old Sleuth of the Til- den Democracy , is eicnply piraljzing. 1'er- liapa however , tho'doctor is familiar with the secret knowledge of which , it wna fondly hoped , waa confined to Mr , Tilden and Mr , Andrew II , Green namely , that Mr. 8 , J. Tlldon ha ] been dead for two years past , though ho did not wish the fast known. AMONG all tha republican oflko-hold- ere in the atato of Nebraska the great man of the Omaha Herald found ono nho was a very ofFonslva partisan , and upon that unfortunate man the Herald's torpedo battery has boon turned loose , although ho is now out of thn federal ser- vlco. The name of the victim cf the Hcr-ald& wrath is Freeman , and he hold the Important position of postal clerk. . Dr. Mlller < ' 'who was loaded for boar brought down a squirrel.

Give HI something herd. IT is hoped that when Prof , Beenoy , of the Ifebruka state unlverally , delivers his ledtnro on "Injurious Fungi , " etc , before the American pomoJcglcal aocloly , d will not forgot to give a full descrip tion of the editor of the Lincoln Journal , tlian whom there ia not K bigger ex- crcscencs in this great commonwealth. la ONE Dnncau , recently sppolnted pojt- miater of Lincolnvllla , Me. , in place of oliVnslvo republican , i ] noabla to on- upjn the diaohargo of hla dalles , ba . at * present ho ii an iumat3 of the ssunty ja/ ! / , Turn the raeoU oat. > g MR.

No\v niul Xlion Ono Grown Uioh Honest Iifilmr Tncr Usually Tholr Money aa Ilnnclimon , The Indian's first Inlorojt in civiliza tion la manifested in his love of whlaky and his faeclnatlon by the gatno of poker , writes a Helena ( Mont. ) correspondent of the Now York San , The great ma jority of euch savages aa ara weaned from the warpath never got beyond thoao amusements , but there are few rod mon in various parts cf the country who hnvo exhibited n disposition to amass wealth , and have succeeded pretty well. Of tbo Shoahonea in Nevada and Utah there arc three or four who may bo asld to bo independent. George Washington and Bhcshono Jack are bloated stock holder ! nnd aristocrat } . The former began stock-raising In a small way sav- oral yearn ago. At first It was hard work for him to gat anything cr to keep it after ho got it , because his dissolute , li8ppy.Ro-lu.cky companlona exerted an evil influence on him , but when ho finally succeeded in marketing a coaplo of pigs ho was In great glou. Ho put the first money that ho over caved into a tunk , and about half of his trlbo followed him , giving vent to tholr disgust in groans nnd grunts. When the bank failed George was neatly bsaldo hlmtolf with disappointment and rage. It took half a dozen white men to explain to him how It was that a man could put his money In n bank aud never get it again , while the bankers were psriuittad to go about their business. George Washington bo- HOVRS to this day that the bink falitd on purpose to glvo its officers n ehancj to ran awiy with hia hard-earned money. Some white mon gave George a little help after hla mtsfortnno , and ho soon had other pigs. Then ho branched oat Into stock raielng ia general , and by cars fill economy and the most untiring luduc- try ho haa obtained considerable proper ty. It is estlmatud that ho now oirns § 2,500 worth of ponlo.i , cattle and ho has $300 or S-100 on deposit with A mlno boas who once helped him. Ho calls around to see tha boss every day of his life and ha * done eo for five or six yonra. When ho comes the name dialogue la gone through with. "You got 'em ? " ho will siy. ' Yen , 1'va got 'em , " the boss will re ply."Well "Well , you keep 'cm. Mo to3 you every day. No eoa bank man ; mibbo so once a year. Hoop vamouso all Dime coyote ; no good. " Shosaono Jack ia meaner than dlri.but ho haa a level head. Some of his associ ates are envlons of him , but most Indiana ar < j too lazy to care about anothcr'o good foitane. Jack has a farm , a house , sev eral horsss , cowa and pigs , aud consider able money. It io almost out of the question for tiny ono to boat him in a trade of any kind. He is not an untu tored savage , for ha knovra ever ? trick , r.nd bo is ono of the very few Indians who mike money by playing poker. What ho gets ho koeps. Jack sold a pony tn a young busk not long ago , only a part of iho prlco being paid down. It waa agreed that the purchaser thould como around every four weeks and make a pay ment. The young Indian kept his word tor a few months , but ct last when ho had almost , settled the ecjro ho experienced a financial drawback and failed to appoar. Jock waited a day or two , and then hunted him up and uip.do him return the pony. Two months later the purchaser secured the money , nnd going to Jack ho demanded the pony. Jack then raised the prlco of the animal $5 , and charged $2 extra for boarding him. Thii nearly broke the young man's heart , but cs ho could do nothing else he agreed to iy the additional charges. Jack haa a great contempt for banks and bankers , and no ono has over baen able to indues him even to i-ntsr a bank ing-house. Ho carries his money In an old leather glrdlo , nnd when ho apenda a cent it lo because ho wants something pretty bad , and there is no other way cf getting it. Ho never pays anything for railroad fare , though ho travels around a good deal , nnd what ha oats costs him little or nothing. A llttla while ago Jask triad to buy a piece of fertile laud In a valley which bd- longed to oome white settlers , and ho went to them litco this : "Whito man solid on bottom land. In dian have heap mountains , stones , ani rocks ; no giod , Indian heap hunt. Wblta man heap tarm. Mo white man. How Bl rnach little ploco ? " BlB Unfortunately , the settlers were not 0 dleposul to oncountQO Jack'd ambition to ai bo rv white man and ha did not got that 01 particular ploco of land , though ha has irI since then Bocnrod considerable properly I * in ono place and another. tire Old Golorow , of the Utes , is a man of re some property , and takes puticu'ar ' delight - red light in lording it over his nssoo'ates. Ho r Is too vain over to bo very prosperous in B a financial way , as he will epand money Bd froaly to gratify any whim that ho may 01 hftvo or to accomplish anything that ho 01rl thinks will add to his importance In the rltl eyes of other membars of his tribe. One tl of his pat schemes Is to buy papers or tlS tlB books , and tsmmo to road them to the Bsvajos.

With the majority OQ tba idea is that the government snould la pay them for farming. lawi One of tha wealthiest Indiana ia the wiM \ oountry ia Obiaf Peono , of the Spokane an trlbj , who HV.IJ naar Spokane falla , Washington territory.

Many vcatfl ml o ho made up hla mind that it Trasonlyicoi n question of time when the whites wonld ba wanting land at or near Spokane fallr , and ho took np the best land in that vi cinity , and made some effort to cultivate U. llo built a rndo homo and lived there , apart from tha trlbo , though exor cising his authority as usual. In the courao of tlino , when the Northern Pa cific road was surveyed , ho saw further opportunities for making money , which ho did not permit to pasn unimproved , and by the time white Bottlers began lo nrrlvohowas in possession of the best land in that vicinity. Ho sold out at good prices , Docketed his money and said nothing. Whan the town ot Spokane Falls was laid out It WAS found thai leone owned aovcril good lota In It. Thcco havo.bcon said at n profit , and the money invested in hones , cattle and bonds. As soon as Peouo made his trades ho aban doned farming , and tnklng his money and portable property , ho rejoined his trlbot. Ho lives now ns plainly as any of hii brothrou , and in evan moro care less than they about ii what ho eats and wears. It Is said that ho Is worth $25- 000 , and that thcro la no such thing as gottiog any of It away from him. After the Plegana of Montana had bon subdued and broken ia spirit by the United States army and the Crowe , their traditional enemies , they devoted thnu solves fr > n time to money-making. E/- ory ono of them worked llko a beaver , and f Jr a time it seemed as though they were to bicorao n tribe of Indian Ccu- SUKS , but the inhuman neglect of congress - gross , or of somebody In authority nt Washington , by which they were de prived during ono cold winter of the necessaries of life , reduced them to star vation , aud the fen" members of the trlbo who had exhibited a disposition to buy and sell and triclo wcro overwhelmed with the common tflllotlon. Ono of the most prominent of this class said , irhoa spoken to recently : "No us ? . White nnn hog. White nun take heap everything. Mo no play poker. White man holu hoin too flood hand. " The Columbia river Indians in Oregon are thrifty and Intelligent In many ways , but their material progress is Badly re tarded by a atrango anoeHtltion wi.lch they h vo relative to Und.

A few of the mora advanced appeared to bo wil ling to make the purchase , though evi dently harrastoi by doubts and fours , bat they finally backed out. It after wards transpired that the trlbo has al ways neld RO a religions principle that it waa sinful to t radio in land , ns It amount ed to the sjnio thing aa dealing iu hnmon lleah.

Gjjeme , cMef of tha Ynqnl and Mayo Indiana , was born la 1842 , In the tiny town of Torln , oa the banks of the j sllant Yaqul river , which crecpa to tha Pacific from Sonora/s heart of forests.
