A BILL for the gradual abolition of
fllnvery has passed both houses of the
Brazilian parliament.
GoYBitNOii Hint hns received congratu
latory mossiiyos from ninny eminent doni-

and send it by slow mail.
TIIK Boston Advertiser pays a high
compliment to Agent Gassman , of the
Crow Creek agency , and commends him
to the president as a proper person to re
ceive , Uio benefits of civil service reform.
WQ take it for granted Mr. Gassman

THEIU : is biped on the moon.
democratic factions-in Omaha are sluirp
oning their tomahawks and scalping
knives for the deadly hand to band com
bat , \yhich is to be fought out between
llio cohorts of Miller and Boyd ffnd their
opponents under the leadership of
Charley Brown.
PERMANENT expositions sire becoming
fashionable in all largo cities , and are
making state fairs take a back scat , al
though there is no good reason wli3r the
two shows should conflict in any way.
Omaha haa made a good start towards
a permanent exposition , Kansas City is
v following suit , Chicago has had one for
several years , and now comes Pittsburg
with plans { or ihe , erection dl S perma
nent oxpositibn building , to bo con-
ptructed entirely of iron and glass and to
cost $200,000.
Wirr can't the city council take steps
to grade Seventeenth and Eighteenth
streets , between Farnam and Harncy , so' . enable the county commissioners
to extend the court house retaining walls
nnd enclose the grounds this year ? The
commissioners are willing to contribute
$4,000 tQ-thoOxi pn8Ciof grading. If that
amount'is n'oi enough to complete the
grado'around the court house square , it
certainly will leave Very ifitle' for tho1
council to add if the grading is only ex-
tendod.from Farnam street to the alloy.
That would nt least enable the county
to complete the wall on the Farnam
street fcont and carry it back to the alley
on Seventeenth and Eighteenth streets.
THE rules of the British postoulce with
regard to offensive partisanship have re
cently found their way into the hands of
'Postmaster'General Vilas. They read as
follows ;
rl ( ) 'flint-no postmaster or other servant of
the department shall servo on n committee
having for its object to promote the return of
a particular candidate. (2) ( ) That ho shall
, nOt support or oppose any particular candi
date , either by public speaking or writing.
' ( ( } ) "Flint no notice soliciting votes for any
particular candidate shall bo alllxcd either
\vllliln or without any p6stotllco or other
jiiaco under flici control 'of the department ,
and-that within such building no memorial
oraddress with a purty object falmll Ho for
signature or bo exhibited.
CVliy would it not bo the right thing to
adopt these rule's for this country ? Par-
Iiaps the democratic editors who have re-
'cohlly bc'eri pensioned in the postal
servjqo would seriously object to pay for
substitutes to do the campaign writing
and talking.
'JTnii Boll telephone and the Western
tlnlon monopolies recently charged that
Attorney-General Garland had given the
permission to institute the government
cult against the BollcompanyatMemphis
f orOiopurpose , of contesting the validity
of'tho patent , and that it was improper
for : him to do so because ho was con
nected with n competing telephone com
pany. It now transpires that Mr.
Garland did not grant the per
mission , and was not in Washington
> vhon it was grunted. The request
\va9imado to the department of justice ,
nnd'tho acting attornoy-gouoral granted
tho'permission. If General Garland had
'been'present and had refused to grant
pcnnlb'Hlon bocanso of his personal re
lations to another telephone company ,
itvwotild have been iv great wrong nnd
imposition that ho should permit his pri-
TRto-ufTairs to prevent his performing n
duty to Iho public. The Pan Klcetrio
Telephone company , in which it was
charged that Mr , Garland was n stock-
'holder , bus no Intqrust in the National

Union monopolists liuvo attempted Hi
every jv y to throvr "discredit upon the
suit that has been instituted and upon
everybody connected therewith in any
way. The associated press dispatches
from Memphis when the suit was insti
tuted wore mtpproriscd , as Iho monopolists
did not want the public to learn that the
validity of their jmlunu hud been nt-
taokud. But thp facts are becoming generally -

The people of tin * country are fast be-
xxmitng.awaru . of Uie importance of Ihe
planting of trees nwUho prcrcrvnlton of
forests. The proceedings of tlie fourth
annual meeting of Uie American forestry
congress , which has just been held In
Boston , show ( hat many able and influen
tial men , from all parts of the country ,
arc interested in this movement. Tills
congress , or association as seine might
term it , may bo said to have originated
from the Nebraska arbor day , which was
established ever ten years ago. The Ne
braska custom of planting trees on a cer
tain day in the spring , which has ex
tended to other states , no doubt called
the attention of the people everywhere to
the importance of the preservation of our
forests and suggested to thoughtful
minds the organization of a forestry
congress. The association was or-
ganiml In the spring of 1833 at Cin
cinnati , at the instigation of Baron von
Stoubciij by several prominent men , and
in August of the same year it was reor
ganized at a meeting in Montreal. It
has Mnco hold annual meetings , and each
year its membership and influence are
At the rcceut mooting in Boston pome
very able addresses wore delivered upon
forestry by eminent men who have given
the subject much thought nnd study.
Much valuable information , numerous
statistics and important suggestions worn
presented , and we have no doubt the re
sult will bo an increased interest in for
estry. It was maintained by one of the
speakers , Mr. lligley , the president of the
association , that if China had had
Prussia's forests she would have escaped
her terrible famines and floods. China
has made agriculture almost : t religion ,
and has doiio everything for irrigation ,
but nothing has proved suflicicut to take
the place of natural resources. Her
troubles are largely due to the destruc
tion of her forests. There is abundant
evidence in America of the effects of. the
cutting down of 'the forests. In central
New York , where this has been done ,
streams that thirty years ago kept mills
going and furnished a never failing sup
ply of running water , are now dry in
summer , yet with the warm' rains and
thaws of spring overflow their banks ;
spring is later , peaches will not ripen ,
droughts are more frequent , and in
spring the freshets are more serious.
The cutting of trees from the headwaters
of streams is also the cause of thcdilli-
culty in navigating the largo rivers in
certain seasons. In China and India , in
fireeoo and maiiy StJi&jiauJftrffiS , tl'w out :
ting off of the forests has proved the de
struction of the streams. Theforest areas
exercise a positive climatic influence on
the surrounding country. They equalize
the temperature and the water supply ,
and agriculture and horticulture are
aided and protected. People live and
calculate for the present , and so dislike to
pass over certain advantages of the pres
ent. Mr. Higloy claimed , however , that
management of the present forests would
entail to the- present and future genera
tions benefits "to all" " , Uut until profit is
more certain from foresting few Ameri
cans will plant trees for such purposes.
In referring to tree culture in Kansas and
Nebraska the speaker stated that as a
source of profit it was next to stock
raising in these states. To show the
profit in trees in other countries ho quoted
statistics from Prussia , which from her
0,000,000 acres of state forests , has an in
come 6f , $7,000,000 ; Saxony , from her
400,000 acres of forest , $1,250,000 , and
Bavaria from her 3,000,000 acres a profit
of $1,500,000. The forests of Alsace and
Lorraine are equally profitable.
American forests have been extensive
ly denuded in recent years by various
causes , In 1880 it is estimated that lire
destroyed 10,000,000 acres of forcsW. The
railroads of this country have used for
tics alone the product of an area larger
than Ilhodo Island and' Connecticut.
Estimating that tics need bo renewed , on
an average , once in seven years , there
must be drawn from Iho forest annually
50,071,428 , ties , requiring the limber grow
ing on 505,714 acres. Allowing thirty
years as tlio. time necessary to produce
trees of proper dimensions for tics , it
will require 1(5,071,420 ( acres of woodland
to bo kept constantly growing as a kind
of railroad reserve in. order to supply
the annual needs of the existing roads.
This constitutes an arcp. larger
than the states of Now Hampshire ,
Vermont and Massachusetts com
bined , or the States of Now
Jers'oy , Maryland and Delaware , with the
addition of Connecticut. It Is more than
4 per cent of the total , area of woodland
in the United States , exclusive of the ter
ritories , and 8 pdr cent of the area in tlio
states and territories together. With the
rapid extension of our railroad systems ,
these figures will bo proportionately in
Hon. .T. Sterling Morton , wlio repre
sented Nebraska in the congress , was
given an cnlhusiaslio reception as the
originator of Arbor Day , which is now
permanently established in eight or nine
states , In ihq course , of his address to
the congress ho staled that when Ne
braska was llrat opened the state had not a
single forest , but to-day there are 700-
000,000 trees planted by human hands in
Nebraska. Mr. Morton advocated the
repeal of the law imposing a duty on for
eign lumber , as it is destructive to our
forests to a serious extent , ' -While wo
on the prairies make forests , " said Mr.
Morton , "you In the casj ; destroy them
by keeping a high tariff on lumber , "
It was no doubt a matter of pride to
the originator of Arbor Day that the con
gress adopted n resolution recommend
ing that hereafter on Decoration Day
trees bo planted by all Grand Army posts
in the country , and that the day bo
henceforth designated as Arbor and
Memorial Day. This will make n na
tional tree-planting day , and it is to bo
hoped that the recommendation will bo

There are a number of expert horse and
cat tie doctors who tvottld gladly accept

ment. An ounce of prevention Is Worth
n pound of cure. It is the duty of the
city authorities to provide proper safe
guards against the spread of contagious
diseases among live stock , nnd Mr. Fu
my's proposed ordinance is a step in the
right direction.
The Irrepressible Conflict.
The letter of the executive com
mittee of the Knights of Labor to Man
ager Callo-wny. of the Union Pacific , in
response to his own manifesto ,
while temperate in its tone , is
caustic in its reference to the duplic
ity heretofore practiced by the com
pany in disclaiming responsibility
for the employment of Chinese in the
Wyoming mines. The Knightd plant
themselves on high ground when they
express abhorrence of the massacre of
Chinamen and simply appeal for fair
and humane treatment of white men
who are compelled to support themselves
and their families by toiling in the coal
mines. They do not attempt to
dictate , bully or threaten. They s'uuply
take a linn stand against the competition
forced upon their co-employes by the im
portation of Chinese. There is a settled
fact which tlio managers of the Union
Pacific cannot afford to ignore. There is
as much of an irrepressible conflict be
tween the free white labor and the labor
of Mongolian coolies , as there was be
tween the free labor of tlio north and the
slave labor of the south. Shivery and
freedom could not exist aide by side. The
national laws of demand and supply
would operate against tiio superior race ,
because its civilization has erected wants
which are entirely unfclt by the serf or
coolie laborer. In the very nature of
things , a Chinaman who has no family to
support is content to subsist on the most
simple food , and can live comfortably in
wretched quarters hardly lit to shelter a
dog. The Chinaman will thrive and
prosper where a wliito man with Ids wife
and children must starve and perish. It
is this utter inability to cope with such a
competitor that impels the white laboring
men of the Pacific coast : vnd the west
tc r'lSse in vOvolt and demand ilmt the
Mongolian shall not bo given a foothold
on American soil. Tlio Enightfrof Labor
simply voice the ovcrpoweringsontimont
of the great mass of American wage-
workers who desire to avoid a deadly
conflict for existence which would sooner
or later cause a thousand Rock Springs
riota , and might become the prelude to
an uprising more desperate and bloody
than the memorable outbreak of the com
mune. Prudencc'would.dictatp thattho ,
corporations who havea , vital interest in
maintaining order and fostering pence'
and prosperity should take warning in
time from the lesson of Hook Springs.
Manager Callaway and the Union Pacific
directors have as much at stake as Iho
Kniglits of Labor in keeping the Chinese
out and giving the white man a fair
chance for an honest livelihood.
ONE of the great problems of rajlway
development has 'been to devise the
means whereby.trains could bo kept in
constant communication with every
station and with 'each other while in
motion. We believe wo are now on the
eve of the solution of this problem. The
most simple and effective device would
bo an insulated mil with a metallic rim
or band coming in contact with a similar
strip of metal within tlie car wheel.
Compressed paper wheels have 'boon in
use in tins country for several years , as
well as iu Europo. pronounced
moro durable than the metallic wheels.
A system of compressed paper rails has
recently boon introduced in Europo. An
American company has established in
St. Petersburg a larga factory devoted to
this special manufacture , authorized by
tlio Russian ministry of finance. The
company id soon to construct a
railway line from the capital , on
the banks of the Neva , to Warsaw.
Now paper rails and carwheols are al
most as perfect insulators as any ma'tbri-
al used for that purpose , and it will not
require a great genius to invent a pra'cti-
cal conductor that can bo attached to
the rail and connect with tlie' wheels 6f
tiny railway carriage or car. Such a con-
n'cctlon would enable an operator to
keep movlnga-aihray trains in communi
cation with each other and With the train
dispatchers. Whenever this system
comes into'goneral use many of the acci
dents and delays to which railway travel
is now subject will bo done away with ,

A BumplloAU Territory.
Boston Advertifle-A An interesting dis
cussion recently occurred in the Dnlcota
constitutional convention. Some of the
members were eager to' adopt an article
declaring the right 8i tliu people of the
coming " state "tri1 alter , reform or
abolish" the cystoni ( > f uovormncntunder
which they may bo living.
So much of llic dobatO ns has como to
hand indicates thntfhis'jH interpreted as
an assertion of the right of Iho people to
abolish the territoriaFgovcrnment whenever -
over they see fit , and set up another
form of Government , or an assertion
of the right , if admitted into the
union , lo abolish a republican form of
government and set up something
else in its place ; and the fear seems
to be that such a provision in the consti
tution would prejudice the admission of
tlio state into the Ui ° ' n. So far as the
first mentioned slgi , iice is concerned ,
wo imagine the pcopla of Dakota would
Iind themselves subject to the constitu
tion of the United States , which provides
that "tho congress shall have power to
dispose of ami make all needful rules and
regulations respecting the territory or
other property belonging to the United
Slates ; " and , so far aa tlio other is concerned -
corned , thn provision of the national con
stitution , that "tho United States shall
guarantee to ovorv state in this Union a
republican form "of government- " will
If our Dakota friends are setting up n
right of revolution or secession , they
are rather behind the times. Perhaps ,
however , they are -justified by the Massa
chusetts bill of rights which says : "The
people alone have an incontestable , unalienable -
alienable and indefensible right to insti
tute government and to reform , alter and
totally change tlio same. " But this bill
of rjghts was framed and adopted several
years before the national constitution
was written , and the people of Massachu
setts were not living on a soil belonging
to another government. Therefore thuy
could also say what the people of Dakota
have not the right to say : "The people
ple of this commowealfh have the
sole and exclusive right of governing
themselves as a free sovereign and inde
pendent state , and do , and forever here
after shall , exercise and enjoy every
power , jurisdiction amd right .which is

to tlio United States that they have no
longer the sole and exclusive right to

lorm , alter or totally change their form
of government , except within limitations
and subject to the sanctions of another
power. The people of Dakota are sub
ject to tlie United States constitution and

Isaac-'wandered back into the ear , and ,
taking a scat near the couple , became engaged -
gaged ! ! ! conversation with them , and
pretty soon he came back and said : It s
all right , boys ; I hitched them. They're
as happy us a couple of dogs with a fresh

A Squeal From One Who Claims to
Have Keen Kitten.
GKAHD Isr.ANi > , Neb. , Sept. 23. [ To
tlio Editor. ] Having attended the fair at
Grand Island llio past week I am par
tially prepared to tell the readers of
your paper and the horsemen of tlie ad
joining states of some of the workings
of that association , so that in the future
horsemen _ will not bo led astray.
Visitors from abroad did not faro any
better than the exhibitors of their own
county did , for everybody was served the
sumo. It .scorns that the association was
bound to have monov. and that they did
not care how they got it just HO they got
it , and that after they once got it , the
idea was to keep it.
Mr. Cuiumingtf , ono of tlio owners of
Joe JJavib , wan aC Grand Island , and the
oIlicorH of the association talked so good
to him that lio'irmdo a proposition to
them , as follows : that ho would have Joe
Davis nnd Phyllis trot at Iho fair on Fri
day for the gate receipts , and the ollicers
said they would give the gate receipts , if
they would bring ever six horses and
help them make a hliow , no everything
wus-iirrangcd , stalls and feed to bo free ,
The owners of the horses gdt there na
soon as they could , and made entries -
trios , nnd the. association published Joe
Davis and Thyllis to trot on I'rlday.
But astiinnor citmo on Thursday , when
the association claimed $15 for stall-rent ,
nnillliqil at Iho close of the fair that
evening they announced that Joe Davis
and Phyllis wuold trot on Saturday. This
fell on Iho crowd like a wet blanket , and
then the people began to talk loud.
The editor of the Independent in Satur
day's issue said there was considerable
kicking but ho smooths it over as bust ho
can , but ho can never appenso Ihu feel
ings of his neighbors , even in Ids 6wn
I admit tlio fair was a financial success.
but why did the managers nro-rato , and
only pay forty per cent and say to .llio
exhibitors Hint they had no money ? Tlio
owiuirs of Joe Davis and Phyllis
are not inon to font with , aud
when they jiw the association
was trying to rob ( hum thuy raid
no. The hot Rim : iud hard truck was not
tlio reason. It was llin : i.soeiu -
tlou did thum up , and Mr. Grimes told
thiim KO , and that if. thisy didn't make
him right ho would ilot ( rot for { horn for
ail llio mpnuy in the bank.
One of tlio ollicers told Nr. Wngner , the
owner of Phyllis , Friday night that if
they didn't make buttiir time tlmn 'J2l (
( hey wouldn't give them a cent , and
they took it for granted from thu way
they luul been tivsited and llio way otli.
ii-s were Iro.-ited that ho WIIK telling llio
truth. The olliecrs of tin : association got
