TIIK Lincoln Joitriiiil , in referring to
the late Captain Kmmctt Crnwfurcl as
Captain Jack Crawford , falls into a mis *
take which lias been made by quite a
number of western newspapers.

Mit. MANVII.I.K , the republican council
man-elect from the Sixth ward , ought to
feel'proud ' of his overwhelming majority.
It was strong proof of the coul'ulennu of
the ward in him , in spite of the plasterers
who were plastering the ward with pla
cards branding him as a pcab.
GIIKNT.Y may bo a good man. but nobody
knows him. He Is too fresh. Herald , April
Mr. Cheney is not now quite so fresh
as ho was. Ilo has been introduced and
the largo majority lie received in a demo
cratic ward .indicates that ho is pretty
well known among the shop boys.
Tun Illustrated Graphic Kcws , the new
Chicago pictorial weekly , is an clogant
paper , It at once takes rank with the
best illustrated periodicals of the country ,
and is bound to prove a success. It is a
western publication and therefore deserves -

people. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
How to reorgani/.o the navy depart
ment is the perplexing problem with
which congress will shortly wrestle.
Money will rebuild the navy , but it takes
bruins to plan a feystom which will dis
burse the appropriations to the best ad
vantage with the least possible
for useless veil tana ,
Mit. T. V. FOWDKKMT has not lived in
vain. He is now talked of as a candidate
for governor of Pennsylvania at the hands
of the democratic party. If Sir. Pow
dery would accept the nomination the
democratic party would ho considered
very lucky , for it could not getaslrongcr
candidate at the present time.
It Is going to bo a tidal wave of reform.
The barnacles and conspirators must go.
Herald , April 6Hu
It was a tidal wave of reform sure
enough. First , Hascall and Lcedor were
thrown overboard at the republican pri
utarles , which the democratic packing
house had tried to pack in their interest ,
Then the tidal wave swept over the re
form candidates of the bosses , and loft

oleomargarine cannot bo
sold In Connecticut without being marked
and the purchaser notified of what ho is
buying. AH using it must post placards
to that affect. A similar law exists in Ne
braska , but It has never boon enforced.
If the Nebraska petitioners who have ap
pealed to congress fpr a national law
against bogus butter would take stops
towards enforcing the state law , they
would probably accomplish the desired
result much quicker than by waiting for
congress to take action.
A PETRIFIED woman having recently
been found in northwestern Nebraska ,
an exchange sayathat as further evidence
of the remarkable goqlogical richness of
that part of the state the fact that petri
fied fish nnd fowl have boon found In
many places is cited , and one man living
in Omaha has n petrified , human foot ,
found on Uib northern border of the state.
This is not at all surprising to the peopla
of Omaha , It was only on Tuesday last
that a man from the Third ward with a
potrlflou cheek was elected to the city
Tun subject of profit-sharing is moro
intelligently discussed in view of the
growing power of labor organizations.
Industrial partnerships have been most
thoroughly tried by European firms and
corporations. There in a unanimous
agreement among thorn that this system
promotes you ! , olllelonoy nnd economy ,
and thereby increases the profits of busi
ness , that it Is a moral adjudicator , and
that it substitutes harmony tuul mutual
good will for disgust and contention In
the relations of employer and employed ,
and that where it has failed the fallurn
has been duo uithor to extrinsic causes or
to a too hasty abandonment before the
full educational result has been obtained.
THIS now election law in Chicago
worked like a charm , although it did not
prevent the ro-oloctlon of a few objec
tionable councllmen , Tho. Chicago News
says that "in every ward in the city Its
machinery worked with remarkable
smoothness , and , ns the result demon
strates , with universal ofllcicaoy in pro
tecting the franchise from the notorious
outrages that have characterized past
elections. Illegal voting , repeating ,
false impersonation , and all the kindred
crimes by whicti unscrupulous politic
ians have heretofore stilled the fair ex-
Utf\sdjp of the public will were reduced
? y _ , mininmin , " This is , indeed , < i
gratifying result in Chicago , which hail
acquired an unsavory notoloty on no-
count of the gross election frauds prac
ticed for years in that city.
TIiQ Arbitration Bill.
This arbitration bill prepared by Chair
man O'Hcll of the labor committee has
passed the house of representatives
and Is now before the senate for its ap
proval , The text of the measure as
already published wns not materially
altered from the form In which it came
from the committee. Compactly stated
[ he bill provides for arbitration between
Inter-sfato railways and their employes
whenever such n settlement of differences
Is requested by cither parties interested.
It provides for a board of three arbitra
tors with the powers of a court for
subpmnalng nnd swearing witnesses , with
a stenographer and clerk , all paid by
the government for their services. The
decision of the board is to bo made in
writing to the commissioner of labor and
by him Is to bo made public.
It will be seen that thoO'Noil bill Is not
as has been stated a measure Intended to
enforce arbitration. It has no provisions
making atbltratlon compulsory in ca cs
of ciifloronccs between the managers of
Interstate railroads and their employes ,
and there is nothing In ( he measure whieli
will make the award of the arbitrators
binding when their decision Is ren
dered. Its only aim and object is
to facilitate arbitration us a means
for the peaceful settlement of such
dlHerenccs by furnishing an impartial
court with means to secure all the testi
mony bearing upon the case , and without
oxDon.so toolthnrof thopartiesconnerncd.
So far Mr. O'NelPs bill is a valuable one.
It makes arbitration a legal means of
possible remedy , under legal supervision
independent of the avarice of employer. " ,
and hunted controversy of employes. It
affords a jury whose verdict , while it will
not be binding upon those who submit to
it their dilferences , will yet wield a btrong
inlluenco in determining the result. The
employer or employe who appeals to the
federal court of arbitration , and who then
declines to abide by the decision will
lose much moro than ho can
possibly gain by his refusal to
accept the result. In addition the arbi
tration bill would would bo valuable in
drawing attention to arbitration as a
cheap remedy for the abuses which it
socks to remove. The present strike has
cost the country millions of dollars In lost
wages , damaged nroporly and disorgan-
i/ud trade. If the points at issue had
been submitted to a court of arbitration
weeks ago ami the verdict had been ac
cepted , labor and capital alike would
have profited in the settlement.
Justice for Crnwrord'M Murder.
The funeral of the late lamented Capt.
Crawford , who was foully murdered by
Mexicans while pursuing hostile Indians
in Sonora , will take place in Kearney on
Sunday. The city which ho called his
home will pay its last respects to the re
mains of the gallant oflicer , and delega
tions from his old regiment and from the
department headquarters will unite in the
simple ceremonies. No olliccr of the
line was better known in Nebraska. It
was in this state that ho did gallant .ser
vice for many years on the frontier
in assisting to bring peace and
immunity from the horrors of
Indian warfare to our settlors. It was in
this state that ho chose his homo , to
which as cacli month came ho sent n portion
tion of his pay for the support of a
a crippled brother. It is not surprising
that the general feeling throughout Ne
braska is one of intense indignation over
the cowardly assassination of the dead
soldier. There is a crying demand on
the part of our people that his murderers
shall be brought to justice , nnd that the
government , in whoso uniform they
masqueraded , shall pay a heavy in
demnity for the outrage. Captain Craw
ford was killed by treachery while in
performance of his duties , ns nn
oflicer of the United States , on Mexican
soil in pursuarfco of a treaty between the
two governments. . The evidence is con
clusive that his murder was premeditated
and carried out with the view of plunderIng -
Ing his camp. If such an outrage had
been offered to the flag of any other
peaceful nation , prompt reparation would
have been demanded and enforced at the
month of the cannon. Captain Craw-
font owned Nebraska as his state. His
body will lie in Nebraska soil. Nebraska's
delegation in congress should press the
demand of our people for justice to
Crawford's murderers and reparation
from the government whoso uniform
they wore ,

Secretary Lamar's decision on sus
pended entries , which overrules Mr.
Sparks' ruling of April 15 of hist year ,
will be rend with great interest by the
people of the w < Jst vylioni ! \ ufluctud by its
publication. The secretu.y ; of the inte
rior decides that patents must issue on a
rcgistci 's certificate of linal proofs in duo
course of business , nnd that the suspen
sion of the issuance of patents until spe
cial examination of proofs have been
made , ns contemplated in Mr.
Sparks' order , wns unwarranted in
law nnd not in accordance with
public policy. In the opinion of the sec
retary of the interior , the restrictions
thrown around the homesteader and preemptor -
emptor in the matter of final proof upon
their claims are ample to protect the gov
ernment , if the officers of the local land
offices do their duty. The laws are ex
plicit ns to their requirements , and the
decisions of the land oflico on matters at
issue in past cases ought to leave no rea
sonable doubt as to what docs nnd what
docs not constitute compliance with the
statutes. The government has the power
at any time to revoke its patents on proof
of fraud , nnd the statutes provide punish
ment for perjury. Mr. Lamav believes that
the action of Mr. Sparks was illegal in
assuming that nn oillcor of the govern
ment could arbitrarily deprive u citizen
without duo process of law of property
to which ho had a title ns against every
one but the United States. This is pre
cisely the position taken some months
ngo by Judge Doady of the United States
district court In Portland , Oregon.
Ths effect of Mr , Lamar's decision will
bo to remove the embargo on the issue of
patents in Nebraska west of the 100th
meridian , nnd to place receivers' certifi
cates of purchase once mor at par. They
will now stand on precisely the same
footing that they did a year ago , eviden
ces of clear title to the land and good
against any adverse interest except that
of the government.
DISPATCHES from Washington nn-
nounco the impending transfer of station
of the Fourth nnd Second regiments of
infantry. This is news of interest to
Omaha which has been for n number
of years past the headquarters of the
Fourth , That regiment has had nn
unbroken station of moro than seventeen
years in the department of the Plattc ,
coming hern before the completion of the
Union Pacific railroad and garrisoning
the frontier posts as they were success
ively located for the protection of thu un
settled conn try.
The KiiRllMi Crisis.
Another twenty-four hours will probably
decide the fata of the Gladstone ministry.
Thursday afternoon will bo a red letter
day in the history of the house of com
mons. The audience which will crowd
the galleries nml fill every space of stand
ing room to hoar Gladstone's speech , In
troducing homo rule , will be the mostdls
tinguUhcd in rank , title and literary and
political reputation bcforo which an
Kngllsh orator has over .spoken. Macau-
lay's description of the scene at the trial
of Warren Hastings will be more
than surpassed if any equally
facile and picturesque writer shall
give us his impressions of the
extraordinary occasion. The crush of
peers , bishops , soldiers and states
men for tickets of admission is
said to bo beyond precedent.
What will bo the result ? No one ventures
to predict. The only thing certain is the
entire uncertainty of the vote on division ,
The cabinet Is disorganized , the liberal
party fluttering with fear and expecta
tion , the lories anxious but far from
hopeful. Mr. Gladstone alone preserves
his balance , calm , impcrtublc , appar
ently indifferent as to the outcome , confi
dent that whether ho wins or fails ho will
add the cap stone to the monumentof his
mighty reputation as an orator and states
man. He is standing on the solid rock of
justice to Ireland , and history will ap
plaud his position , whatever the verdict
of a timorous parliament. The whigs
may do.icrt him , and the ambitions of ri
val leaders may break the ranks of his
support , but when fear and passion anil
revenge have .subsided , the cool , clear
judgment of sober-minded Englishmen
may bo depended upon to complete the
work which ho had the courage to map
out. Home rfilo for Ireland and justice
to Irishmen cannot long be delayed ,
whatever the present verdict.
Tlio Police nt the Election.
The conduct of the nolico in several of
the wards at the election was simply out
rageous. They were sent to the polls to
preserve order , but instead of doing that
they were meddling in the contests , as
saulting peaceable citizens and causing
disturbance and violations of the law in
stead of conserving the peace. In the
Second ward they knocked down men
and women indiscriminately with their
billies when they could just as well have
dispersed the crowd by making a few ar
rests. A policeman that will strike down
a woman with a billy is a coward and
ought to bo dismissed nt once from the
In the desperate effort to get control of
the city government , the police was
nst'd yesterday as a political machine.
The democratic officers on the force were
working tooth nnd nail for the demo
cratic nomiuccs , nnd using their official
position to bulldoze and threaten politi
cal opponents. This gives an Inkling of
what would have been the result if the
democratic bosses had carried the day ,
nnd the city government had been thrown
into their hands , as they so confidently
The police force needs a thorough
revision , and it nhould not bo delayed.
The political sludgers who flash their
stars in the faces of voters to prevent an
honest expression of public sentiment
should bo taught emphatically that tax
payers have no use for this kind of ofli-
cers of the law. Clubbing pooceublc
men and breaking the ribs of innocent
and harmless women may accord with
their ideas of political necessity , but it
will not bo endorsed by the respectable
and law-abiding citizens , no matter what
their party affiliations.
TIIK anti-suicide olnuso in life insur
ance policies has been decided time and
again to bo a very lame defense to the in
surance companies , especially where the
self-killing is not done with intent to defraud -
fraud or where the person is insane , and
they have frequently been compelled to
pay policies where death has boon caused
by suicide. The latest decision of this
character is that of Judge Dyer in the
United States circuit court of Wisconsin ,
who holds that suicide from insanity is
accidental. One Crandall had a policy
in the Accident Insurance company of
North America for $10,000 , one of the
provisions of which \yas that the policy
did not cover death from "bodily in
firmity or disease. " Crandall became in-
Btiiio nnd banged himself a pretty eloar
ease of disease. But Judge Dyer dis
cussed the subject in this fashion :
An accident had been defined as the hap
pening of nn event without the concurrence
of the will of the person by whose agency It
was caused , an event without design and out
of course. Some violence , casualty or vis
major waa necessarily Involved In the term
accident. There WAS no difference between
force eaiauatlng from the Insane person him
self and force operating Independently from
without , The injury and the death were
equally fortuitous In both cases , for in neither
was there n concurring will which promoted
the act. The policy contained n provision
that the company should not bo liable In case
of suleklo or elf-Inflicted injuries. Jiut th.it
referred to deliberate , intentional self-de
struction , which could not bo called nn acci
dent. No novlslou was made against sui
cide when Insane. The second question , and
one equally important , was whether death
was caused by "bodily Infirmities or disease"
of the insured , against which the company
had especially protected Itself , It was con
tended that Insanity was a disease , that the
death was caused by the disease , and hence
the company was not liable. That was the
huvvheie the Insurance was general , not
special or life policies , but did not apply to

Railroad management in its effects up
on the general public nnd upon railway
employes is an old though by no means an
exhausted topic , but of all the persons
who suffer through the deviltry or stupid
ity of the men who rule some of our great
common carrying corporations , perhaps
the most cruelly treated victims are the
poor people who risk their scanty savings
in stocks which are made to appear safe
and profitable investments and then
wrecked. This class Is moro numerous
than anybody would suppose at first
thought , nnd it is quiet only through a
sense of Vttcr helplessness. Just now at
tention is called to their misfortunes by
the publication of nn appeal tor mercy
by the so-called delinquent stockholders
of the Philadelphia company , those who
have not paid nnd cannot pay the assess
ments required in order that they shall
not bo deprived of their entire
interest in the company or its
property. It is stated in Philadelphia
tliia 1,500 of the stockholder * of this
road are women , many of whom hayo
no other property and nave been living
in want ever since the Reading ceased to
pay dividends. They have trusted to the
plowing promises made from year to year
by the managers of the company nnd
have looked forward to the time when
their stock should yield an income sulll-
eient for their support , in part if not alto
gether. Imagine the state of u widow
thus situated , with a reorganization
scheme under way which promises to
wipe out the hist vrstige of her property
and extinguish all hope of butter times.
She has no powerful organization to help
right her wrongs , nor any way of secur
ing redress from the men who have de
ceived her with delusive promises and
plausible schemes. In the struggles of
the rich and strong she has been forgot
ten and her interests sacrificed without
remorso. The press and the people
ple are busy discussing the wrongs
-workingmon and shippers , and
the poor stockholder is hardly
granteu a passionate line in an obscure
corner now and then , Yet there are
many such stockholders in our great
public corporations. Tnoro are several
railroads which have more than 10,000
stockholders apiece , nnd on some the
owners actually outnumber the employed.
Many of these Investors hold but a. few
shares each , nnd while they are helpless
us to the management of the companies ,
they have a largo share of Ml that they
possess at stake. It Is these unfortunate
investors who are the especial victims of
tlio Goulds find tlio Scnoys , the construc
tion companies , the fnsl freight lines , the
palnco cur companies , and other leaches
which fasten themselves to railroads for
the benefit of the managers nnd heavy
stockholders. In the righting of wrongs
ot thorn bo remembered , and jiKlico and
humanity will bo the better for it.
AN ENGINE OF WAR.
The NOAV Trnrollnc Torpedo "Which
if ) Ktpcotcd to Do Mtloli Dntungc.
London Times : The details of moving
torpedoes , ns regards tholr Mooring
power , propulsion and explosive charge ,
have for some time pn < l formed : t special
study with Mr. H. 1'anlson , who has affected -
fected what would appear to bo some Im
provements hi these respects. Electro
magnets am the chief acents n nd In the
steering arrangements , although their
exact construction and arrangement are
points upon which the inventor prefers
to preserve silence at present. So with
regard to his improved means of propul
sion and the explosive charge , the most
that ho is just now prepared lo state
publicly respecting these is that propul
sion Is olVuoted by a system din'ering in
tote from any ot those at present em
Broadly staled , it consists In thn use of
chemically generated gas which Is util
ized either for forcing n column of water
direct astern , or for causing it to actuate
machinery for driving n propeller. The
explosive charge consists of a species ot
gun-cotton possessing r > 0 per cent , moro
power than ordinary gun-cotton , but Imv
ing nn equal degree of safety. The steer
ing device Is that upon wliich Mr. rani-
son is most communicative , ami this is
.stated to consist of two batteries , one
pole of each of which is placed in connec
tion with the coils of two cts of electromagnets -
magnets , from which lends tire conduct
ed to two metal pins lived on disc of iu-
Mtlating material. Doth the other poles
of the batteries are placed in com
munication with ix balanced mag
netic needle of special construction. The
metal pins are placed 0110 on either side
of the needle , and thn course of the tor
pedo having been set , it is started. Any
deviation ol the torpedo from its assigned
course causes a relative movement of the
needle , which touches one or.ollier of the
pins , thus establishing the circuit through
the coils of ono or other of the two mag
nates. An armature connected with rud
der is attracted and by this means the
torpedo is again placed on its right course.
The depth of immersion of the weapon
is also regulated and maintained in a
similar manner by a vertically balanced
needle. Another feature is that the tor
pedo can bo directed toward iron ships ,
irrespective of the predetermined course ,
by means of another balanced needle.
A demonstration of the steering powers
of the apparatus was was recently given
bv the inventor at 10 Coekspur street ,
Charing Cro- , a model torpedo tibont 1 ! !
feet 0 inches long and 7 inches in diameter -
ter being usud. The model was not
placed iu water , but was swivelcd on n
stand , anil it was clearly shown that
when it deviated from the course upon
Which it , had been laid , the electromagnetic
netic arrangement which was of course
concealed within the torpedo came into
operation and restored it to its normal
course. .More could not be shown
but it was stated that a full-sized torpedo
sixteen feet in length and fourteen inches
in diameter , had been made and .success
fully tried on the coast in England. On
the last occasion , however , the torpedo
had managed to get away from its in
ventor ana had been no more
seen. The material of which Mr. Paul
son proposes to construct the
shell of his torpedo d I Hers
from that hitherto used in that is a spe
cies of napicr-mache of a , tough and
librous nature. The new weapon is to bo
discharged from the shore , or from any
ordinary boat , thus obviating the cost of
a special torpedo boat. This feature
points it out as valuable for coast and
harbor defense , for which purposes it is
the opinion of several naval authorities
by whom it has been examined that it is
especially adapted. In view of its ap
parent merits it would appear desirable
that the government authorities , who
have had the matter under considera
tion for some little time past , should lose
no time in constructing a torpedo of the
proper working size and have it properly
tested. This course is the less objection
able , seeing that the cost is dated to be
only about 1'ICO. At any rate the inven
tion appears to justify prompt and thor
ough investigation , In order that its prac
tical usefulness or otherwise may bo as
