THE Now Orleans Picayune maintains
that public economy In the government
of all cities demands that stealing as well
as salaries should bo reduced. If the
stealing were stopped , llio people would
not demand any reduction in salaries.
On the contrary , wo believe they would
favor Increased salaries , if such 11 stop
Would promote honesty.
AN exchange says that if doctors would
nltend writing-schools occasionally drug
clerks would make fewer mistakes. Wo
would add that if doctors would write
tliolr proscriptions in plain English in-
Btcad of hog Latin the drug clerks would
bo more likely to fill their prescriptions
correctly. A dead language for pro
scriptions ought to bo buried beyond
resurrection , oven if it is necessary to
pass a law to that efl'uct.
A onr.AT many people have been at n
loss to know what the filing of articles of
incorporation of the Omaha & Southern
railroad meant. It means a great deal
for Omaha. It means an extension of
the Vandalm road to this city. Tlio rep
resentatives of that great road will in the
near future present n proposition to this
city , which involves not only tlio exten
sion of the line from Fort Scott to
Onmha , but from Omaha into northern
and northwestern Nebraska.
GEKONIMO is still nimbly skipping about
about among the rocks of Sonora , but
-when ho rolurna to Arizona ho will miss
several of his old friends and companions
who are now on their way to Florida un
der armed escort to spend the rest of their
days several thousands of miles away
from the sconces of their former exploits.
The bravo codeo-coolcrs of tlio territory
who fight principally with their mouths

THE defeat of Bland's silver bill and
the proposed amendment leaves the coinage -
ago question whoroit was before-tho ses
sion opened. The present congress will
not bo apt to disturb it again. The
country did not permit itself to get
frightened over the horrible predictions
of the single standard shriokors. They
wcro told that if the coinage law was
repealed that gold would bo driven out
of the country. The fact is the other
way. When the present silver coinage
law was passed , tlio stock of gold in this
country was about $200,000,000. Its
stock to-day is about $000,000,000 , a gain
of $400,000,000. England and Germany ,
whore silver has been demonetized , have ,
on the other hand , great dilliculty In
keeping their stock of gold at the sta
tionary point.
Tnr annual report of City Attorney
Connell presents some interesting in
formation concerning the city's litiga
tion. Ho has during the year reduced
Vie number of pending suits from 188 ,
involving claims to the amount of $149-
3t)7 ) , to 48 , the aggroffato claims of which
are $50,817. The ninety suits disposed of ,
the claims amounting to $03,070 , have
been settled at a costof only $13,359. The
total number of suits now pending , in-
eluding the now ones commenced during
the municipal year , is MO.uiut the amount
Involved Is $373,423. While this is a largo
mount , no fours are entertained , as Mr.
Connell will no doubt succeed in reduc
ing It witli but comparatively small cost
to tlio city. He Is certainly vigilant and
antlvo in protecting the city'u interests.
.His success so iar demonstrates this fact ,
audit is evident that tlio legaldepart
ment is in safe hands so long as ft is conducted -
ducted by Mr Connoll.

Parties find Homo Unlc.
Tlio end of the present week will prob
ably determine the fate of Mr. Glad
stone's Irish measures. The homo rule
bill is still under discussion. It will be
followed on Friday with the land pur
chase measure , which promises to bo still
moro radical than its predecessor , The
situation is a complicated ono. Parlia
ment is divided into at least four distinct
groups outside of the Irish members , and
tlio attitude of each of those and their
ability to unite with each other in oppos
ing the Irish bills must be taken into ac
count when weighing tlio chances
of success or defeat. The con
servatives oppose Mr. Gladstone's
schemes on grounds of tradition
and principle. Separation and dismem
berment are in their opinion ono and the
same thing , and the establishment of an
Irish parliament moans the forging of
weapons which ultimately will give Ire
land complete independence. To falter
with the question is , they aflirm , merely
"moral cowardice. " Tlio conservative
party Is , however , hampered by a lack of
affectiveleadership. . Lord Salisbury , its
nominal leader , is undoubtedly a man of
ability ; but he is not popular , and ho lias
not the power of convincing masses
of men. Lord Handolph Chin chill ,
who Is the animating spirit of tlio
younger men , lacks discretion and
perhaps sincerity. It is tlio gene
ral belief that during the recent elec
tions hu tried to form an alliance with
Parncllltes , ono condition of which would
of course bo the granting of homo rule ;
but he has since denounced both Mr.
Gladstone and the Irish members in the
most unsparing terms. Ills course lias
therefore boon too "meteoric" to com
mand a largo permanent following.
The second group , the "moderate lib
erals" or whlgs , like the conservatives
four the experiments of homo rule.
They behove that Ireland should
bo satisfied with the liberal
promises of the present ministry and the
era of good feeling which it lias intro
duced. They assume that the time has
not yet como for wide sweeping meas
ures of governmental reform. At tlio
same time they have a strong party feel
ing for Mr. Gladstone as the accredited
liberal leader , nnd they naturally hcsitato
to combine with Ids enemies against
him. Lord Hartington is recognized as
the leader of this faction. Ho is a man
ot aristocratic predilections and moder
ate opinions ; ono who is never brilliant ,
but usually esteemed safo. That ho has
a good deal of influence among the whig
nobility and gentry cannot bo denied.
The third group is composed of the dis
affected radicals under Chamberlain and
Trovelyan. It is an uncertain quantity
both as to its strength and convictions.
So far as can bo ascertained from the
speeches of its leaders in opposition to Mr.
Gladstone's bill its attitude is moro the
result of antagonism to the forthcoming
land purchase bill than to the extension
of local government proposed m the
homo rtilo measure. Mr. Chamberlain is
considered to bo a power in Birmingham ,
and ho has long boon hold the real leader
of the radicals. Ho has long boon identi
fied witli the politics an. d the industries
of Birmingham. Ho represents a class
that is a growing power in English life
generally the wealthy manufacturers.
The conservatives like to reproach Mr.
Clmmborlain for the introduction of the
"caucus methods" into English politics.
Mr. Trovelyan is a nephew of Lord
Macaulay , and , like his uncle , ho lias
inado his mark as a writer upon histori
cal subjects. Ho is a man of fine educa
tion , and a lawyer by profession. Ho
lias held the post of Irish secretary. The
mass of the support for Mr. Gladstone
outside of the Parncllitcs must come from
the liberal party remaining after the whig
and radical secessions. This includes
many distinguished men , and has
without question behind it the bulk of
liberalism in England , Uesido Mr. Glad
stone llioro are Lord Itoscbory , Mr. John
Morley , the now Irish secretary , Earl
Spencer , formerly viceroy at Dublin Cas
tle , not to mention Earl Granville , Sir
Willium Harcourt and other members of
the present cabinet. Those men are
probably bettor known to Americans
than almost any others , perhaps because
of their natural sympathy with the prog
ress of liberalism. Mr. John Merely is
moro a man of letters than a politician ,
though ho gained a valuable expo rionco
in public affairs when editor of the i'all
Mall Qazctlc. Lord Rosobory belongs to
the younger aristocracy , so largo a part
of which is oven radical in its opinions ,
oven Lord Randolph Churchill , though
nominally a conservative , choosing to
pose as the loading spirit of a "tory de
mocracy , " whatever that may bo. Mr.
Labouchcro , the accomplished editor of
Trnlli , though nominally unattached to
any party , is another aristocratic radical ,
and is at present an earnest supporter of
homo rule.
Those are the elements out of which
Mr. Gladstone , unless ho suffers defeat ,
must carve a parliamentary majority for
his Irish measures. Wnon it is considered
that the British house of commons con
tains 070 members , of which 8iiO consti
tute a majority , the dilliculty of predict
ing the result can readily bo scon. The
liberal party has 330 members , and the
tones muster in round numbers 350. The
Parnellito strength is eighty-six. The
question is , whether the liberal loss will
bo moro than seventy members. If it is ,
the government will bo defeated.
flojjiis Divorces.
The cablegram of a few days ago
which announced that tlio English court
of high justice had refused to recognize
a Montana divorce as valid calls renewed
attention to the disgraceful frauds which
ro daily being perpetrated in this coun
try under the name of legal divorce. In
the cuso In question , an Englishman
moved into Montana , resided there six
months , secured divorce from his
English wife at the expiration of that
time nnd returned to England with an
American brldo. Ho served no notice on
his wife except through publication in an
obscure paper , and the first information
slio obtained of the dissolution of the
marriage tie was the return of her hus
band with a new bride.
The laxity of our divorce laws , espe
cially in tlio west , is shameful. There is
no question Unit hundreds of divorces
ore obtained every year by bra/.en per
jury , In which the Injured wives or hus
bands are afforded no opportunity to de
fend suits brought njrainst them without
their knowledge. Only a few days ago ,
in Douglas county , Judge Wakoly dis
missed a suit where ho hud learned only
by accident that the notice of the petition
was published in a Swedish paper
in order to hide it moro thor
onghly from the defendant. Scarcely
a term of court passes where divorces
are not granted to non-residents who
como to Nebraska temporarily to obtain
legal separation from their wives and
husbands , nnd institute suits in our courts
hundreds of miles from their homes to
nrevcnt a fair trial of the cause. Divorces
by default are much too common. In
nine cases out of ton they mean that the
defendant has not received notice of the
suit. Proceedings are begun sccretlv , the
lawyer who has the case in hand takes
dire that the notice of petition is hidden
In some obscure sheet wnero it will
never meet the eyes of the husband or
wife interested , nml when the day for
thn hearing of tlio cause is sot there is
naturally no defense and the decree ob
tains by default Divorces are proper
when based on justifying f.ic'.s nnd when
obtained openly nnd without deception.
The fault in our laws seems to bo that
personal service is not required when
possible , and that actual citizenship and
the intention to retain It Is not a necessa
ry to bo shown ns a prerequisite to secur
ing the operation of our courts In dissolv
ing the marriage tie.
Mounted Audacity ,
The bellowing Itto will bellow longer and
louilor about the cliuulntton and tclcgiaiihlc
news service of The J/cniM a llttlu later.
But for brass-mounted audacity Its "London
special" of lart evening , tl.atwas itmnufnc-
lured out of one that \\as printed In T\c \ Her-
fid ? sovoial days ago , and is cnlleil news , Is
entitled to special attention and contempt.
Talk about brass-mounted audacity 1
The audacity which prompts the Herald
to make this retort surpasses in hardness
Bessemer steel or oven adamant. The
idea of our copying the stale cable ser
vice of the Herald when wo are paying
for moro than 4,000 words of special every -
ory day , is certainly moro than auda
cious it is a piece of sublime impudence.
The cablegram , which the Herald claims
was manufactured from an old dispatch
that appeared in the Herald some days
days ago , came by wire Sunday night
and first appeared in Monday morning's
edition of the HUE , which edition our con-
tempory is at such pains to ignore.
The most audacious piece of brass-
mounted impudence is the Herald's at
tempt to rival the BEE'S circulation ,
when it knows that there is sim
ply no comparison to bo made.
If the Herald has any money to contri
bute to any charitable institution wo will
wager $1,000 that the BIE circulates in
the city of Omaha moro than four papers
to the Herald's ono , nnd wo arc ready to
wager an equal amount that the general
circulation of the DAILY Bin : is moro
than three to ono of the Herald , with its
Sunday addition dumped in to make up
the aggregate.
If the Herald were to contract to print
our daily and weekly editions it would
keep its newspaper presses grinding
night and day , and then fail to do the
job , oven if wo paid a dollar a copy for
every paper turned out. This is no idle
boast. Wo mean just what we say.
Stick a pin there , if you please.
DELAY in reaching a decisive vote is
greatly favoring Mr. Gladstone's homo
rule measure. His opponents have made
a weak showing in their attacks on the
measure. Sentiment in parliament is
still trembling in the balance , undecided
in what direction to turn. The premier
alone seems undisturbed as ho awaits the
result. If he succeeds , the victory will
bo a stupendous ono ; if ho is defeated ,
on tlio other hand , ho may not bo com
pletely demoralized. In the case of defeat -
feat , there are several courses open to
him. The heroic remedy would bo to dis
solve parliament on this issue , and ap
peal to the country ; in other words , to
take tlio course of asking the kingdom at
Iarg9 if it were willing to try the experi
ment of homo rule , through the simple
process of issuing writs for a now elec
tion , in which the homo rule question
would would bo the paramount
object of discussion. This was
what Mr. Gladstone did in 1874 ,
and then ho failed to secure
popular support. Another course
open to the premier would bo to resign.
In that event the queen would send for
Lord Salisbury , as the recognized conservative
vative leader , and ask him to undertake
the task of forming a ministry , and , as
tlio phrase goes , "carrying on her maj
esty's government. " Should ho refuse
or find it impossible , a coalition ministry ,
including men of all parties united to re
sist home rule , under the premiership of
Lord Hartington , is by no means impos
sible. In either of these events Mr.
Gladstone would become simply the
leader of the opposition and could carry
no scheme of his own , but only fight tlio
government nutil , perhaps , an adverse
vote against it put him into power again.
Which course will tie follow , in case he
cannot carry his ho mo rule scheme now ,
it is impossible to predict.
THE Herald says that it is not able .to
answer questions in respect to the ante
cedents , character nnd qualifications of
West , the now governor of Utah. The
Denver Tribuno-ltcpublican answers the
questions as follows : "Caleb West , the
now governor of Utah , is a judge , not a
journalist. Ho hails from Cynthlana ,
where Blaine once taught school , and is
said to bo a lover of horses and a good
judge of whisky. These qualifications are
probably all that are needed in a gover
nor of Utah so tlio president evidently
thinks. "

No Slrtko on the Ifnlon Pacific.
A prominent Knight pf Labor assures
the liKti that the various rumors to the
effect that n general'strike ' on the Union
Pacific is being ngltited and threatened
are without foundiAlorj. Tlio men gen
erally are well satisfied All their griev

Interested. Mr. Thomas Ncnsham , of
Denver , the district master workman , is
said to be u cool-headed man , somewhat

believe in slrikos. That a strike has not
occurred on the Union Pacific is greatly
duo to his lovcMieadcdness , nnd th
probability is that nor.o will over occur
if ho can prevent It. This statement ,
coming from good autliontj' , is certainly
a gratifying assurance to the people of
Omaha and Nebraska that tlio present
prosperous condition of affairs will not
bo disturbed by any strike on the Union
Pacific. The Omaha employees of the
company are generally satisfied , and are
as anxious as anybody to share in the
prosperity of this city. Among them are
some of our best citizens , who will not
countenance a .strike unless some out

Virtue on tlio
Dcni'tr Titbunt Kfj > tiM/c / < ui.
Misi Mary Anderson plajcd to more
money in thrco performances in Denver
than Salvini did in the same number , It
is worth while to discover why this was
so. Snrcly it was not bocanso Miss
Andersen is the greater genius. Wo
doubt not that this will bo admitted by
her most enthusiastic tulmlrors ; nnd it
cannot bo entirely explained by the fact
that she has been advoitised and talked
about In the newspapers as no other
actress , with the possible exception of
llernhardfc ever wtti. We think her
wonderful success as an "attraction" is
duo entirely to thrco causes ! lirat , that
she is an American ; second , that she is
beautiful , and third , that she is good ;
and the last cause is the first in eon-
tributing to her success , for thouah she
were twice nu American and twice as
beautiful , she would not have won the
position she occupies were she lacking in
It is a withering commentary upon the
American stage to say that a woman has
won fume upon it because she is virtu
ous ; nnd yet wo do not question its just
ness. The stage lias Ueon brought to M >
low a iihtno by the looseness of its repre
sentatives that tlioM ) who look upon act
ing more ns u source of amusement than
as an art and there can be , no quc.stion
that nine theatre-coers in ton so regard
it are disgusted with it , and they are
glad to show their appreciation of an no-
tress whose moral life is above reproach.
In Miss Andersen they find beauty and
goodness and a mediocre talent for act-
fiig. This mediocrity , supported by
actors of capacity and trained inmagnili-
cent stage settings , and enriched with
beautiful colouring , presents a dramatic
performance that is pleasing to the eye ,
and deceives those good people who know
nothing of acting as an art into the belief
that it is not mediocrity but true genius.
How happy then , would the people of
America bo to bestow unstinted patron
age and praise upon an American actress ,
whoso genius should be pre-eminent , and
whoso virtue.should bo as sterling as her
genius ! The stage can no longer say
that it is under a ban. Society recognizes
it , and is doing all in its power to elevate
it. It is tin unhappy fact that lee many
actors are worthless follows ; gootl for
nothing but to play parts before the foot
lights ; witli no interests in the aflairs of
the country or of society , and deserving
of having their citizenship taken from
them ; and that too many actresses tire
loose in the moral lives ,
There is no reason why an actor should
not bo a gentleman , an actress a lady ;
and the stage is indeed degenerate when
a. woman ot ordinary ability 'can com
mand the attention of the theatre-going
world chiefly because of her virtue.
There is something of retributive justice
in it ; and it woultl bo better for the stage
to reform and cease Us complaints that
it is ostracized. In all professions this
reformation is taking place ; mediocrity ,
that is honorable , is pushing genius , that
is dishonorable , to the wall. The result
will bo to train genius in the way it
should go dramatic genius ns well as
other kinds.
Hoxio'H Folly.
Cleveland Leader.
First Vice President Hoxio , of the Mis
souri Pacific , who has all along managed
the strike contest for the Gould system of
railroads , is taking exactly the course to
make himself ono of tno best hated m en
in America , lie sfoms to be as hard and
merciless as his master Gould , and to be
far inferior to that wily millionaire in dis
cretion. To treat the members of the
executive board of the Knights of Labor
as ho did Saturday is to strengthen the
turbulent and reckless faction in that
order who are disposed to follow the
violent leadership of such men us Irons ,
nnd to weaken the power and the inllu-
once for good of prudent , law-abiding
nnd rcasonablo men like Powdcrly. It is
contemptible in lloxie , or any man in his
position , to spurn fair propositions for tlio
termination of a great strike , and it will
never pay him or the company ho repre
sents to insist upon every technical right
and to grasp all the doubtful honors of
his victory. Hoxio ought to understand ,
as every intelligent man docs who has
watchbu the course of events in the south
west , that it was largely if not chiefly
Powdorly's first order to the knights to
return to work , which broke the back of
the strike , and that , had the
Knights of Labor and their lead
ers been as arbitrary and uncom
promising as the active head of
tlio Missouri I'noiiiq , that railroad would
now be struggling in the midst of a des
perate strike instead of running its trains
with comparative ease and regularity.
Ho owes if to the heads of the order to
rccpfriii/.o what they have done to set his
trains in motion and retire the peaceable
and regular order of business in several
states. His present course is technically
but not in spirit what the people of the
country had a right to expect , and sooner
or later the Missouri Pacific company
will have reason to regret it. That cor
poration is not so well fortified in right
eousness and popular approval as to be
safe in the hands ot a Hoxio.
