fTnn | railroads have given Omahi
another bhok oyo. 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

benefit cf the Panama canal.
Now that the mayor has ordered thai
the front dcora of ualooca must bo cloacc

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

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

While tha builne a center of the city Is

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-

man of the Omaha Herald found ono

torpedo battery has boon turned loose ,

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 *

Old Golorow , of the Utes , is a man of re
some property , and takes puticu'ar ' delight - red

Is too vain over to bo very prosperous in B

froaly to gratify any whim that ho may 01

After the Plegana of Montana had

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 -

hammedan chieftain does over the Sou-
din. 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.
His paranto wore Pantaloon Loiva Ov
jome and Hllarla ilultomea , the latter ,
nil mother , being known yet through
that country aa the Sibyl. Thu baptismal
waters of Catholicism from the bauds of
the adventurous Italian missionary
Father Roimnnl rested on his head
when a boy in the town of Navajoa.
From earliest boyhood Osjame took to
the chase , and refused to work on a farm
when he could scour the deep fores ta with
his bow and arrow. When thirteen yean a
of ago ho ran away from homo , and from
that day his lifo was a conalaat rcstlesj
march , n Bohemian existence. Ho en
tered the servlcD of J. R. Bourse , an
American miner , nt Alamas , a town on
the projected AUmai and Mazitlan rail
road. Wino and women soon drew tholr
cha'ns ' abont him , and , fired by jealousy
and drink , ho drew his fir.it human blood
by stabbing Abraham Jollmin , who was
Mr. Bourso'a steward. Ho-then Hod.
In 1872 , when the governor of Sonora ,
Iguaclo Petquerl , started out to assist
the governor of the neighboring olnts of
Sinaloa against the revolution headed by
the bloody Muqtuz , Oajamo joined the
state troops , Darin , ; the campaign ho
gavd proofs of great valor and of uncom
mon military skill , and was nude a
colonel in tha Mexican nrrny. During
lalaaro moments of the campaign he
learned to raid and write , for , as ho
novcr would go to school , ho did notovon
know the alphabet when ho entered on
tub exciting period of his life.

sanguinary caciques ot Mexican history ,
and known &a the American Nero.

earned ! by Oijemo in the governor's
army , and tha latter soon bent his extra-
ordiuary talent ) to repressing disorders

by little Oajcmo acquired popularity , aud
the Indian cimpi soon became too nar dl
row a theatre for two such men. Ono

AVI ) at tlioMcn Think and Say About

The now order of houru at the U. P.
shops has gone into efidct , and the men
are gradntlly DO tiling cbwn t ? the inevi
table. The men cootn to acco t the
change ( u something that cannot bo
avoided , bat hops that prosperity will
soon restore tha work to its normal volume -
umo , so Hut the old hours cm bo re-
adopted. Some of the man clatm that
the company has been rushing fta work
ahead to bo batter prepiroi for a strike ,
in , ai3Q the emp'oyoi aaould decide upon
ono when tha hours rrero reduced. It is
not probiblo , hovovur , that any etrlko
will take place. A roporlor who ques
tioned & nnuibar of the mon found
that while there is a good deal of grum
bling among the men on account of the
change , especially among thoEo whose
wages have hitherto been the lowest ,
there appears to boa sentiment that to
Inaugurate a strike would bo folly. As
ono man expressed himeolf to a reporter
to-day :
"There are not the slIghtREt grounds for
belief that wo mon will strike on ac
count of tida reduction ta eight hours ,
Wo will stand the change as best wo can.
Thera IB ono thing , however , that la cer
tain. It' the company had reduced onr
wages , a strike would have beoa inevit
