the closing of the polls. The votes are
counted every hour , or whenever a cer
tain numbur of votes are cast , and In this
Way tlio counters are only an hour or two

Tin : break , in the principal main of the

several hours without iv water supply.
Stioh an accident is not only a serious
impediment to the active operation ol
itiany manufaetaring ostabllshmjiits
which depend on tliu water work * foi
their wntcr supply , but it is likely to re
suit In great disaster and serious loss in
case of tiro. It is the manifest duty o !
the water works company to lay anothot
largo main from thu river to thu resor
voir. It was the original design that this
should bo done , and thu water works
liuvo not boon properly completed with
out it. Up to the present our water sup
JH'y is largely furnished by direct pros
euro. Whenever tlo | water is bolus
fJmupud from the Battling basins into the
rtofcervoir our water supply comes fron
flto settling basins direct , and very oftet
tils prosauro causes the breaking of pipet
mHl connections. This , however , woith
( itf secondary to the risks which wo tin
running by reason of having only otu
Rialii to the reservoir. Let the eoit bi
whiit it may , the t > ccoml main must In
fold aa a matter of public safety. Tlu

Itnrod for the canal , including rock cutting -

11 pur cunt , of tlio whole. This is princi
pally In soft earth. The canal was to be
llnished , according to Mr dc I.i'.ssops , in
1HS3. This is of tiie essence of his under
taking Mlnco ho has to pay intorosU on
the capital employed in con.struetion , in.
eluding tlio share capital. One-half of
the time has passrd , and only ono-ti'tith
*
of the work is done , and this the least
link-tilt part. The highest monthly
ichieveimjiit lias been 775,000 cubic
metres , tile average was only 017,000 per
month in 18St. Tlio nature of the work
in such that a more rapid rale of excava
tion can hardly bo expected. If an av
erage of 700,01)0 ) cubic metres can bo
maintained , and if the LCSSLMIS estimate
of the total amount required to bo done
s not too low , and if the dreadful
Chagres can bo controlled , and if the
money is forthcoming , the canal mny bo
completed in nine years from the present
time.
From thnso figures it will bo seen that
: ho enormous sum of $1100,000,000 will ho
required to linisli the gigantic enterprise ,
[ irovidcd it can be completed at all.
American engineers insist that the floods
of the Chagres river cannot bo eon-
trolled , and that the spring inundations
will surely sweep away any engineering
works placed in the valley , lint oven if
success were possible by the expenditure
of ample funds , it is doubtful if thogigan-
: ic amount of money can be raised.
Without it bankruptcy stares the com-
i > any in the face , and with it a crash so
: errible that it wilt involve thousands of

Fatal lOconoiuy.
The Pennsylvania and New York Con
.ral railroad managers intimate that they
will bo obliged shortly to take oil' their
fast express trains between New York
and Chicago , and to return to their old
schedule of thirty-six hours time from
tlio seaboard to the lakes. Thu reason
assigned for this move is that Iho trains
have not paid , although the public- have
liberally patronized the increased facili
ties for rapid and comfortable travel.
In the same column in which thisimport-
ant news is announced , notice is given
that the Pennsylvania , company declared
its usual two per cent quarterly divi
dend. In another dispatcli the manage
ment of thu Central announce tlio pur
chase of the West Shore railroad for $ oO-
000,000. , Something or somebody must
have paid handsomely in order to roll up
tins round millions of profits , which in
spite of the bettor accommodations of
fast tr.iins are returning dividends of
from twenty to forty pur cent an
nually on the actual investment of those
great corporations.
The explanation of the railroad man
agers for removing the fast trains is high
ly refreshing. It will fall tint on the pop
ular car. A public which is paying
handsome- profits to the stock jobbers o-
thouast will insist on knowing why every
move towards economy in railroad man
agement is made at the expense of the
patrons alono. They are very likely to
inquire If high priced ollleials ever think
of reducing exorbitant salaries or of
cutting off olllciul perquisites for tiie bon-
eiit of stockholders. After every deal in
which the Vandorbilts nnd Goulds in
crease their dishonest wealth by creat
ing millions of dollars of fictitious cap
ital , on which tlio publio must pay divi
dends , a streak of economy at the expanse
of the railroad patrons is at once an
nounced. Trains are withdrawn , repair
shops are closed down , railway stock is
allowed to deteriorate and parsimonious
management on the part of officials and
at the expense of tlio publio alone is
counted upon to make up the deficit.
It is time that some higher power than
the greed and dishonest personal inter
ests of railroad managers should deter
mine the relations of the railroads to the
public. Railroad commissions have
proved and niu.st always be valueless in
curbing the aggressions of intcr-btata
lines. The great combinations of cap
italists which now control mighty sys
tems , wiiojo fingers reach out into a snore
of states , ni'H largely beyond tlio control
of Male laws. Nothing but national
legislation can deal with a national prob
lem. The people of the went , who have
so long been at the mercy of .these cor
poration cormorants , are uniting with
thoje of the cast to demand that con-
gro-i.s .shall give them a relief wnleh th 3
cannot secure elsewhere. To secure thi.
end tlio United States senate must bo re
deemed from the hands of the corporation
attorneys and millionaire lobbyists , whc
are prostituting thu'r ' sacred trust tc
fasten mure strongly the fetters on tin
hands of tho'people of this country.
Such economy as the railroads are now
practicing at the expense of their patron :
will sooner or later prove fatal to tin
continuance of thu present methods ol
railroad extortions. The antagonism
which It is bound to awaken , will before
long make themselves powerfully felt al
the polls and in the legislature , by ilru
ng from their seats the senatorial tools
and cuppurs who are turning a deaf eui
to the popular demands.
TIIK policy of the government and thu
fear of adverse legislation are forcing the
great land grant roads to dispose of their
.inds as rapidly us possible The L'nloi :
. 'noifio during thu paH thrv vrnr. < has
ilrendy thrown an immense pniiUm of
hi-lr mammoth laml grant on the mur-
kct , the wiles for 1SSI and IS l alone
iggrogafiux nearly ( I.WHMXJO aere. on the
main line from Omaha to Ogden , of
which thu largest portion has licen in
Nebraska. The Kansas Pacific. Atnhl-im ,
I'opitkii A : Santa IV , Northern and
Southern Pacific , have all boon using
strong ollVirts lo dispose of their grants lo
IHirclmH-rs and the effect 1.4 being seen
on all wiilos lu thn rapid increase in pop.
illation and in thu number of farms
which are following up the throwing
open of thn railroad lands , In our own
stale the growth of Nebniska north of
the Pintle , which has been so noticeable
during the past two years , has bnen
largely due lo the rapid sale of railroad
lands which were practically withheld
fore many years from thn market. The
lavish generosity of the government in
years past toward the great corporations
will never again bo repented , and the
tendency of thu administration to inves
tigate rigidly the way in which Iho land
grant rouls : have complied with their
contracts is making their managers anx
ious to elose out their real estate- posses
sions willi safety and dispatcli.
Iniprovcimiuts Necdeil In Election" .
Chicago has adopted a now election
law which is expected to do away with
lite notorious frauds which have hereto
fore disgraced that city. Its principal
features are provisions for numerous poll
ing precincts in each ward , voting omy
on actual registration , compulsory ser
vice of election judges and clerks when
appointed , and the closing of the polls at
I o'clock on Iho afternoon of election.
The law is in ninny respects a copy of tlio
New York election statute , which is per
haps the most efficient and stringent of
any in the country. Some of its features
might properly bo transferred lo cities of
Ihc llr&t-clnsj in Nebraska , while others
could bo provided for by ordinance in
city elections. The time has not
yet come , perhaps , when none but
registered voters should bo allowed to
cast their ballots , but with Omaha's
growth it cannot long bo delayed. The
affidavit business is wrong on sound
principles. Ono object of registration ,
in advance of election , is to enable otll-
cer.s to detect prmncditate.d frauds and to
chock off. . the names af men who propose
to vole illegally by personating dead men
and voters who have no residence in fact.
Omaha's growth has boon so remarkable
within the past three years that the poll
ing precincts are now becoming too few
to accommodate the vote cast. The rush
at tlio close of the polls invariably leaves
out many intending voters who get no
opportunity to cast their ballots. The
feature of compulsory service of judges
and clerks of election must , .sooner or la
ter commend itself for adoption. Every
election day , great delay Is experienced
at the polls in securing the proper ofli-
cials because Iho.io appointed decline to
serve. ' When service is made as compul
sory as that of a putit juror this will
cease.
Still , with all the deficiencies which our
increasing population is making manifest
in our election law. Om.iha had a quiet ,
orderly and generally satisfactory elec
tion last Thurs.lay with as few com
plaints of fraud bandied about , as we
have ever known in this city.
WHEN' wo pointed out irregularities
and questionable expenditures by our
county management before the election ,
it was not mere campaign buncombe. The
mere assurance that honest Dick O'Kouft'o
is in the board of coivunisMonor.s is no
safo-guard against abuses that ought to
bo abated. Mr. O'Keefl'u himself is
forced to admit , since thn election , Unit
it was not proper for Mike Lahy to draw
double salary as engineer and deputy
sheriff. In fact there was no authority
or excuse for appointing any deputy
sheriffs for the tail' grounds. They were
not needed tlioro. Thorn were special
policemen for that duty , anil the sheriff
is not authorized to become the special
guardian of tiie exposition at tlio county's
expense. This is only one of the many
abuses peculiar to our star-chamber sys
tem of county management. Now that
Mr. O'lveetl'e is re-elected we hope he
will votj to put an end to thu in , oven if
he has to vote wi'hTimmeoncein a while.
When Mr. Timmo objects to anything
wrong or trios to bring about any needed
reform ho should rucoivu Mr. O'ICeolfe's '
support , even though ho did not support
Mr. O'Kccflu for re-election.
is doing too in uch boast
ing. It claims to bo the only paper in
Omaha that issued n second edition on
the morning after election giving tin :
comments of the Now York press , anil
the only tubulated statement of the
Douglas county voto. Very few persons ,
If any , in Omaha saw that second edition ,
and we failed to discover that tabulated
stitoment of Doii' lns county , The Hin :
no ! only print'ul two morning editions ,
doing what { \\oIfiraM \ \ claim ; d todi ,
but it had the most complete local elec
tion ivturns of any paper in the city , anil
they were presented to the ruadi-r in an
attractive and intelligible tabulated
form. The HUEwas the only paper that
made a respectable showing of tolcgrapl
and local election reports on the morn
ing after election.

Now Adams was quick to appreciate wit

"I cannot understand it at all , " feiiid

misplaced. Tni.s agent is an old Chicago
newspaper man , Fred Cooku , who used

Coolie has gone wild on spiritualism , but

He sprang np and rushed over and

"What makes you so confident ? "

"Why , " quoth the undertaker , "Clio
rich men die in winter nnd poor men In
'imuni'r. As winter Is coming on it fol
lows miturnlly that wo will Imvo .the remains -
mains of people belonging to rich famil
ies to bury. When I say that thu rlchdia
'
in winter and tlio poor'in summer , I am
prepared to give my reasons for that
assertion. In the summer tlmn rich men
as a rule taUn li. easy. They keep in tho' '
shade and spend their time nt summer
resorts , where they get plenty of frosu
air. Poor people , on the other hand , re
main at home. ' 1 hey work In tlio sun.
live In basements nnd hot rooms , ntul
enervate themselves until they take sick
nml die. It is a wcll-knowm fact thut ,
poor people tin a rule have more children
than rich people , and it is also a well-
known fact tlmt the mortality unions
children is greater during the Hummer/
inontlw than at any other season of the
year. Men who work on high whlld , ijti
briek-m.ison.s , men who clean the streets
and tcnmslers , as well us others who are
c.vpo-i'-d U > the hot rays of a mldsumniuri
sun , are poor men , t > s a rule , who uro
compelled to work the year round for
their daily bread. Kich mnn die in will-
ler because they are subjected Uxltiugurs
they lake no precautions to avoid. Po ° r
men Miller from exposure , yet their very
hariNliips lit them for the ( Hidden
changes of the weather , which are nl-
mo.-t constantly oeeuriug. Hloli people ,
wearing furs nnd heavy overcoats ,
crowd iiiln over-heated mm badly vontl-
luted theatres. When they come out
they catch their death of cold. Kich
people indulge in greater excesses in
winter than in summer , They attend ,
moro balls and wine parties and lose
more sleep in cold than in warm weath
er. Tin re are many other reasons for
the fact Mated to yon , but it is hardly
vyorlh while to enumerate them here.
Sullice it to say that the undertakers have
nearly all of their best paying lunuraU
during the winter months. "
