How to enforce the prohibitory law
has been the 'leading question of debate
In our neighboring state of Iowa since
the convening of the legislature. After
nil that lias bcon done and said the prob
lem scorns as far from solution as over.
It is an admitted fact that in Iowa as
well ns elsewhere prohibition docs not
prohibit. The number of saloons in oper
ation is scarcely less than before the law
went into efl'ect. In the leading cities
and towns there is scarcely an attempt
made at concealing the open defiance of
the statutes and thcro are few villages
where liquor and beer cannot be had
tor the asking. So far ns a general
enforcement is concerned the law is
the same dcnd letter that it is in Maine
or Kansas , and as it certainly will bo in
Georgia should the validity of the late
election bo sustained by the supreme
court of thatstate. :
Our Iowa friends mny debate nnd arptto
over the causes , but the fact will remain
that prohibition fails not because it is
wrong in principle but because it cannot
bo enforced in practice. Instead of
restricting the liquor truffle and placing
it in the hands of men who can be dealt
with by the courts for violation of the
law , it bands all lawbreakers together for
self protection , and gives them a strong
support of that clement of the com
munity which is opposed to what
they consider an interference with
their rights as citi/.ens. For this reason
the eil'ccts of Its operation are to destroy
the very objects for which it is created.
There are thousands who if prohibition
could be enforced would give it a hearty
support. The evils of Intemperance are
too appalling to bo denied. Good citi-
/.ens everywhere desire to see them re
pressed by the most efficient moans. And
these are found in a rigid system of high
license such as Nebraska has wi ely se
cured , and the features of which other
states are studying with a view to their
adoption. Under the Nebraska sys
tem such portions of Iowa as could
enforce piohibition would bo able
to secure it through the refusal of the
county boards to grant licenses. The
number of saloons in towns and cities
would bo regulated , the business thrown
into responsible hands and placed under
police supervision , and last but not least
the state would reap a handsome revenue
from its lav on the traffic. High license
is not a cure for all the evils of the liquor
truffle , but it is an excellent remedy for
many. So far as it goes it can be en
forced. It draws to its support wherever
it has been placed in operation the senti
ment of all law-abiding citi/.ens , and en
lists the best class of liquor sellers in its
behalf. With her past experience with
prohibition Iowa might do worse than to
try the experiment of a fo\v years with
The Charity Hall.
The subscriptions of our citizens to the
charity ball have been so generous that
there is every reason to believe that the
forthcoming entertainment for the bone-
lit of Omaha's poor'will result in a fund
larger by more than half than that of
last year. If all the tickets sent out by
the committee are taken the returns will
bo double those of 1883. Hard work on
the uart of those who have the matter in
charge is assuring a successful occasion.
J'ho exposition building will be largo
enough to accommodate r.ll who occuro
cards of admission.
It is very important that there should bo
no delay on the part of those who have
received tickets in remitting the amount
called for. It is an easy way of aiding in
practical charity. The tax is light. En
tirely apart from the objects intended the
money will bo well spent. The funds so
far collected have boon at once placed in
circulation to relieve destitution and
want. They have not been distributed
indiscriminately , but have been dis
bursed through established organized
charities. The severity of the winter is
greatly increasing tno number of appeals
for local aid. Fuel , provision and cloth
ing are needed in larger quantities than
over before by the poor and needy of
this city. Our citi/ens owe it to them
selves to respond promptly to the request
of the committee to hurry in their remit
tances for tickets. Delaying a favorable
reply menus a delay in relieving want
The Apncho Policy.
Gcronimo , the Apache chief , has sur
rendered to Gon. Crook , The announce
ment is accompanied by a strong demand
from the people of Arizona that the
blood-thirsty savage shall be dealt with
by the law as ho deserves. Fear is expressed -
pressed that Crook will again place him
and his renegade bucks on the reserva
tion at San Carlos to recruit for another
raid. It is a doubtful question whether
Gen , Crook can do nnj'thing else. Under
the present regime of clashing interests
between the interior and the war depart
ments , the only function of the army iu
cases of outbreaks from the reservations
is to suppress the outbreaks and return
the depredators to llio earn of the Indian
agents , The army lias no moro right to
turn the Indians over to the local civil au
thorities than R policeman has to hand
over a captured prisoner to Judge Lynch.
As ufluirtf now are , the army iu Arizona
fire forced to act as a foil to the mistakes
of the agents , but their responsibility
ceases when they have captured the hostiles -
tiles and returned thorn to their oflicors
of the interior department.
Right hero has been ( ho root of the entire -
tire trouble in dealing with the Apaches.
Crook realised this fact and urgently ap
pealed that San Carlos bo turned abso
lutely over to his control. Ho promised
that no outbreak should occur if ho were
permitted to place the reservation under
military discipline. For a year his re
quest was granted under an agreement
between the secretaries of war and of the
interior. The late lamented Capt.
Emmett Crawford was placed in cluugo
of the Apaches , Military surveillance
won the day. There was no sign of dis
content or of outbreak until llio meddle-
fcomn Idiocy of a now agent forced the
withdrawn ! of Crawford and compelled
Crook to disavow all future responsibil
ity for the conduct of affairs at the
agoucy. Then' came the hist campaign ,
the troop ? wore once moro called upon to
subdue the Apaches , and Crawford lost
hi ? life in acuompliahing the end.
Gen , Crook is an urgent advocate of
llm policy of transferring the supervi
sion of hottilu and restless Indians from
the civil to the military. Ho argues and
argues .soniibly th.it tiu | ounce of agency
prevention Is worth a pound of military
euro. His u\pcfi nco luv , orovcnt' to him

In the present case ho has nothing to
do but to bring in the surrendered
Apaches and leave them to break out
ouco moro when they become dissatisfied
with their agent and reservation. He is
tied down nnd hampered by the divided
authority which requires ono department
of the government to feed the hosliles
nnd another to fight them. The discom
forts of the situation are incrca cd by the
as-jiiranco that should Gcronimo and his
bucks lake It into their heads to organize
another raid in the spring , the entire ter
ritorial press will denounce Gon. Crook
ns a failure and attribute the cause of the
bloody trail lull by the Apaciios to the

This is another sample of the bricks
that the Ikr'ald is daily hurling at Mar
shal Cummings , but like nil the rest it
really amounts to nothing. The council
some time ago passed a resolution for
bidding the employment ot policemen in
detective work , and authorizing the mar
shal to engage an outside detective when
ever the services of a detective were
needed. Marshal Cummings under that
resolution lias at different times em
ployed Mr. Emory. That is all thcro is

Mr. Gladstone has been summoned to
Windsor , has received the queen's com
mands and has announced his cabinet.
The result is u surprise to all nnd a dis
appointment to botli tiio wliigs nnd the
radicals. The cabinet is a strong one in
its integral parts. Most of the members
arc of large experience in the public ser
vice and have served under the premier
in previous ministries. Only ono , how
ever , resumes his former post. Earl
Spencer , who was former lord lieutenant
of Ireland , is made lord privy seal. Mr.
Childors becomes homo secretary ,
Earl Granville , former secretary of
foreign affairs , is given the colonial
oflicc. Mr. Chamberlain is shelved
as president of the local government
board while Earl Kimbcrly takes the
India oflico , the same portfolio which he
held under the last Gladstone ministry.
The new members are Earl Koseberry ,
the brilliant Scotch liberal , who becomes
foreign secretary , Lord Ripen who goes
to the admiralty ollicc , Mr. Trovelyan ,
secretary of Scotland , and John Morlcy
the radical homo ruler , who is assigned to
the chief secretaryship of Ireland. Sir
William Vcrnonllarcourt is disappointed
by seeing Sir Farrer Hcnchcl raised to
the chancery bench while ho takes ex
chequer , Mr. Mundolla becomes president
of the board , of trade and Mr. Banner-
man secretary of war.
The radicals largely predominate , but
the parly claims that such n loader as
Chambcrlain'lias been assigned to a post
far below that which his abilities de
manded. Mr. Morloy's selection is gen
erally commended as the best possible
for the place. It evidences the desire of
the ministry to deal , when the appropri
ate time comes , with the homo rule
question under the advice of an ardent
advocate of local government. The
whigs have been entirely excluded. Lord
Harlington and Lord Derby are conspic
uous for their absence. The question on
every lip is whether they will bo
found in opposition. Upon their
ability to bring a considerable
following to the tory camp depends
largely the permanency of the now ad
ministration. It is gcnori'lly believed
that nn understanding exists between
Mr , Gladstone and Parnelf as to the ex
tent of the Irish support and as to the
conduct of legislation for the session.
This is believed to include a broad and
liberal measure for the purchase of Irish
land either by or on behalf of Irish farm
ers nnd nn extension ot the powers of
local government in the three kingdoms.
These ho argues must precede and form
tno basis of a future movement for homo
The tendency of the Irish party since
the fall of the Salisbury ministry lias boon
to avoid committing themselves on tiio
situation in a manner which might cause
fuUiro embarrassment. The loaders of
the league in Ireland have taken occasion
to draw the attention of tiio Irish people
to the urgent necessity of preserving
order in tlie crisis under every provoca
tion which may bo oflorcd. Addressing
the National league on Monday Mr. Dav-
itt saids "Viewing the position to which
the land question has now been brought ,
and the position of the national question ,
I will again most earnestly npponl , oven
to those who are threatened with evic
tion and to those tenant furmors who are
suffering social ruin , to restrain their
passions , to commit no breach whatever
of the existing law that may weaken the
position which Mr. Parn'ell occupies in
Westminster and damngo the cause v\ Inch
he is so able nnd so powerful to defend. "
Mr. Dillon followed in the same strain and
made the significant announcement that
ho believed that the Irish people were
within n short distance of a great meas
ure of relief. Speeches such as these ,
joined to the editorial utterances of such
men as Justin M'Carthy , indicate that
Parnell is fully acquainted with the min
isterial programme , and will support it
as ngan ! l any opposition which the com
bined whigs and lories can muster , .Mr.
Parncll's policy will now bo lo conciliate
public sentiment iu England liy modera

Sir John Mnedonnld will find his path
towards securing a strongly united domin
ion strewn with ninny ( horns. The suc
cess of the premier iu securing English
assistance for ills railroad schemes will ,
however , smooth the way. His return
from England -vas made the accession
for n scries of shrewdly contrived ova
tions. Deputations of political friends
greeted Sir John at Ottawa , and he
showed him elf ai much a master ot po
litical craft as over. Ho told one deputa
tion that England looked on with "won
der and admiration" at the way the mili
tary department put down the rebellion
of the Northwest and that Lord \Volselcy \
told him that llio imperial service ilsclf
could not have clone the business so well
as Canada did it.
Sir John had a business us well as a pa

England did not feel at all secure with
her Suez canal privileges in case war
should break out nnd that she looks
kindly upon the Caua'lian Pacific. Pro
vision lias been made for a line of steam
ers from British Columbia lo China. Sir
George Stephen , president of the Cana
dian Pacific , who has returned with Sir
John , remarked to the Marquis of Salis
bury that the true termini of the road
were Liverpool and Hong Kong ; his lord
ship admitted the proposition , and the
raihoad men were then prepared to approach
preach English capitalists. To all ap
pearances the returning party have made
good business bargains during their ab
sence , and the linancinl argument is the
all impoitaiit one as a rule iu politics.
Bismarck's Polish policy has pro
duced a general excitement throughout
Germany. The bill to expel the Poles
was defended bv the Iron Prince with
furious vigor iu the landtag. The Poles ,
ho declared , are the accomplices of the
opposition. By means of an opportune
coalition they might possibly make a
majority against the government. They
are an clement of disloyalty. Therefore
they must be exterminated. " 1 am

day , "to s.ivo my country , although it

chancellor is severely , tcsfing the faith of
liberty-loving Germans in the future of
their country. The Loijdon correspond
ent of the New York Times slates that ho

eminent liberals in the releasing , in which
the author declared iliat the vote of cen

treatment of the Polcj , was the last gasp
of expiring liberty in/iormauy. lie fur
ther says that the national conscience has
gone fast asleep with po sign ot awaken

the liberals fcol helpless while Uismarek

dreadful burden to Germany in all that
pertains to the progicss of liberty and
the widening of the life of its people.
The French decree establishing a pro
tectorate over Anuni and Tonqum pro
vides for an independent d"p.irtmont ,
having its own laws , budget and general
autonomy , the resident-general having
great responsibilities. From the meager
outline this scheme seems to be the most
sensible thing in colonial government
coming from Paris for some timo. Anam
will become a kind of India in which the
tendency will bo to throw the details of
administration upon the resident officials.
The general weakness of French colonial
management is a desiio at Paris to boss
everything clown lo the smallest details.
The Novoc Vrcmya gives a list of the
territorial losses during the last two cen
turies. In 1711 the Ottoman empire
possessed moro territory in Europe than
any oilier power except Russia , her pos
sessions covering 15,451 , square miles.
But from that period the decadence of
Turkey began. She lost territory to pucli
an extent that upon thu evu of her war
with Russia she hud only I ) , 150 miles ,
2,017 of which were owned by princes
who merely owed her su/orainty. The
Berlin treaty deprived her of 4,553 miles
more , so that from 1700 to 1878 the Otto
man empire had lo-t in Europe 10,000
miles. After the war of 1877-78 Russia
annexed 1G7 miles , Austria 1,073 miles ,
and England 174 miles.
