Qrccco to Disarm.
The cable announces that Greece 1ms
finally yielded to the demands of the
powers and that the reserves will at once
bo disbanded. Tins news , if confirmed ,
postpones for some time to come the irre
pressible outbreak in southeastern
Europe. The cause of the dispute , which
promised to involve all the smaller states
nnd lo draw into the quarrel the first
class powers of Kuropo , was the boundary
line traced by the commission that mot in
Berlin in 1830. Some weeks ago the
Greek premier claimed that when Greece
submitted to a frontier limitation
considerably south of the one orig
inally proposed by the commission
nnd rejected by Turkey , she reserved the
right to demand the restoration of the
frontier line previously suggested. This
line would have loft Greece tx strategic
frontier since it passes over the summit
of Mount Olympus. The Greek govern
ment demanded this restoration in cir
cular notes addressed to her representa
tives at foreign courts last October , and
as Turkey declined to make the conces
sion Greece prepared to light for it. Hut
the reopening of war in southeastern
Europe was recognised by the powers as n
calamity which must be suppressed at all
hazards. Russia was known to bo eagerly
awaiting the first favorable chance to
pounce down upon Turkey in settlement
of her old grudges , besides being credited
with a desire to rectify the Russian fron
tier in the region of Bulgaria. War would
offer an ample opportunity for the ac
complishment of these ends , and n. . gen
eral European conflict in the struggle
over the dismemberment of Turkey would
have boon the inevitable result. This
was thoroason for.Mr.Gladstono'ssudden
cnango of front over the Greek frontier
question , nnd for the warning of armed
coercion in case Greece persisted in at
tempting to precipitate a conllict.
They Decline- Follow.
The hair brained editors and lunatic
capitalists who uro denouncing all labor
agitations as communistic , should
read and ponder over the remarks of
workingmon's organs unon such demon
strations as have disgraced Now York
and Chicago recently under the red Hag
of so called social reformers. American
workingmen , whether native or foreign
born , have no sympathy with the flannel
mouthed olathorskitcs who talk of red
ruin , the torch and sword as
the means of advancing the in
terests of labor. American laborers
nnd mechanics are not found in the herd
who urge bloodshed and destruction of
property as the remedy for social ine
quality. The men who live from such
agitation have nothing in common with
the honest and hard-working mechanics ,
who compose American labor organiza
tions. The anarchist brigade is re
cruited from men who are too ignorant
to know that foreign conditions of
society and caste have not been trans
planted with them to our shores. They
are too lazy to study a system
\vhich offers to every laborer and
mechanic the royal right to
raise himself to prosperity through in
dustry and thrift. The laborers of to
day are the employers of to-morrow. The
mechanic working in our shops is the
social and political poor of the capital
ist who employs him. Ho holds the
peaceful weapons of toil and energy by
which to make himself as important an cle
ment in society as any of our citizenship.
If the blatherskites who j > icture this
great republic as arollection of European
monarchies had brains or decency they
would know enough to know that the
organized labor of America repudiates
their rot and declines to join in their dia
tribes against social order. The most
vigorous denunciation of anarchism and
anarchis ts to-day comes from American
laboring men and labor organs.
A Union Depot.
Two days ago it was hinted to our
readers that the question of a union depot
had been definitely settled. The plans
have so far been perfected that General
Manager Callaway3 is now able to an
nounce to the people of this city , that
work on the now structure will bo begun
bcforo the end of the summer. The old
cow shed through whoso dingy arches
the wind has whistled for so
many years is to disappear. Near
the dismantled walls will rise n
building which will accommodate all the
lines of railroad converging In Omaha.
It is to bo a union depot in-fact as well
as in name , a handsome , costly and con
vcuiont structure , adapted to the needs
and corresponding with the growth and
increasing importance of our city. Oma
ha will congratulate herself over this
good news , which moans so much to hoi
material interests. For years she has
suffered from the unfavorable impression
which the present depot has created
upon travelers and visitors. The incon-
veuicuco and delays of transfer across
the bridge will bo done away with. .
Trains for Omaha will run into Omaha
and the city will become in name what it
has been in fact , tiio actual terminus of n
tluzon lines of converging rails. In addi
tion to the union depot , the Union Pacific
will build this summer a commodious and
handsome freight depot of briek and iron
covering a blopk with its arohljif * reel
nnd largo enough to accommodate the
the traflic of a great system. For years ,
in the words of Mr. Adams , Omahii
thought that she could not gel
along without the Union Pacific ;
now the Union Pacific otm
not get along without Omaha.
now management has made the discov
cry , and it proposes to aot promptly
upon it. The result will everywhere be
hallcil with satisfaction. It moans UWHJ
hundreds of thousands of dollars in the
pockets of Omaha workingmen. II
means a kindlier fooling on the part ol
citizens towards a corporation which foi
years has treated their claims with in
difl'erence. It means , more than tins , at
increase in our transportation facil
ities and n largo addition tc
the commercial importance of Omaha
Free speech Is ono thing , but incen
diurism is quite another thing. Such in
inflammatory and senseless speech a
that delivered by Here Most to a lot o
idiotic anarchists and socialists on Sun
day last , in Nevv York , is an outrngi
upon decency , Ilerr Most ollurs to fiiin
ish his followers with brcuch-loaders am
bayonets at ten dollars a uieco , and In
calls upon them to rise and take "wlia
belongs to them.1' ' Ho tells thorn hoV
to muko and use bombs , and urges then
to use petroleum for incendiary pur
poses , "Iu oue year , " says Herr Mos
10J.OOO men could be armed
lud then , wo would seize tin
capitalist * by the throat. Wo
will take all the meat , wlno and vegeta
bles and champagne for ourselves. Wo
will not help .out any foolish trades
union strikers. We want all. \\o will
make war upon all capitalists and state
and church , for they arc all our enemies. "
Hcrr Most need not fear that the trades-
unions will ever ask the assistance of
anarchists and socialists. They do not
afilllate with any such clement , and are
in direct opposition to every sentiment
uttered by such men as Ilerr Most. The
worklngmen's newspapers and their
leaders are already denouncing In em
phatic terms the revolutionary and In
flammatory utterances of Herr Most ,
and they will unlto with people general
ly in crushing out the dangerous clement
of anarchism nnd socialism , which , if
allowed to run unchecked , will undoubt
edly result in mobs , bloodshed , and ruin
in some of the larger cities.
Help the ttooiu Alone.
Omaha's "boom" Is In sight. It only
needs wise encouragement to secure itt
iippoaranco us a permanent fixture. Fnc-
orics and mills are seeking locations.
Now jobbing houses are preparing to
ndd to our facilities for wholesale trade.
Japifal from abroad is seeking invest
ment in rent-paying property. Now de
pots , viaducts , a million of dollars in
mbllo improvements , an extension of
transportation facilities , both In the city
and through its suburbs into the state ,
ire now assured. Much will bo done
'or Omaha during the next twclvo
iionths. What do her citizens propose
to do for themselves ? The time has
come wlion all rivalries , jealousies and
[ lorsonal feuds must bo laid aside. Hard
and united work for the common inter
ests must be the order of the day. It islet
lot enough to vote liberal appropriations
for public enterprises. Private enter
prise must bo stimulated and fostered by
generous assistance. Loud cries for
manufacturers will do little good if ex
orbitant prices for manufacturing bites
repel the advances of intending locators.
Demands for a better class of buildings
to line our streets are nil well enough
n their way , but the way to improve the
appearance of our thoroughfares is to
erect such structures and thus start the
ball which others will roll along. In
many respects Omaha , is still far behind
some of her less wealthy competitors.
She has beautiful pavements and
wretched sidewalks lining them. She
has a complete system of sewerage and a
suflicient water supply , with an insufll-
cient supply of six and seven story busi
ness blocks nnd ofiico buildings to accom
modate those who are anxious to rent
them. The time is at hand when a long
pull , a strong pull and a pull altogether
will force Omaha to the commanding po
sition which she is able to hold as the
commercial metropolis of the trans-Mis
DEMOCRATIC orators in last fall's cam
paign pointed with pride to the reduced
appropriations on which the government
was being carried on. The fact that
several millions less of dollars were
voted last year than the year bcforo to
conduct the national administration was
produced as evidence that previous re
publican administrations had been reck
lessly extravagant in their expenditures.
Wo called attention at that time to this
talk as mere bumcombe , and predicted
that largo deficiency bills would bo asked
for before the close of the year. Up to
the present time $7,000,000 have already
been demanded , and the indications are
that fully as much more will bo
called for bcforo the close of the
session. Cutting down appropriations
at the beginning of the fiscal year is a
very cheap way of making temporary
political capital. But such sham economy
loses its effect when deficiency bills at
the end of the session are passed to make
up the original sum demanded. The pre
dicted Jcfi'orsonian economy of the
present administration , which was to
show in such marked contrast to the
expenditures under republican regimes ,
has not materialized up to the present
time. The outrageous frauds and wild
extravagance which was to have boon ex
posed to the light of publicity
are yet to put in their ap
pearance. A year has been spent
in overhauling the books of the depart
ments without a single discovery which
casts discredit upon the predecessors of
the present incumbents. The star-eyed
goddess of reform has blinked through
the corridors of the treasury , but every
dollar was found cither present or ac
counted for , The democratic hawkshaws
have nosed around the country through
postofliccs , land offices and customs
houses without results. Evidence in
abundance was found , but it was not of
the character sought for. The much
needed change over which the campaign
orators howled so hoarsely eighteen
months ago has brought neither greater
honesty , more ofllclenpy or bettor men
into the civil service. Republicans con
fidently loft their case in the hands of
their opponents and can as confidently
trust lo the verdict of the country upon
the showipg submitted.
ONE of the effects of the combination
of labor is to induce employers to set
forth the condition of their business in
its fullcsst details. No less than n dozen
employers have dqno this in the past ten
days , in Milwaukee , St. Louis , Chicago
nud ftli'ther cast. The other duy 490 mcii
employed in the Mason "machine works
at Tuuuton , Muss. , asked for a 10 per cent
advance in wages , which they believed
the firm could afford to give because the
working force had been increased since
last winter from 500 to 700 men. The firm
answered the request , going into the
secrets of its business and showing the
men exactly why their request could not
bo granted. This is something now.
Employers heretofore have scorned to
explain their business to their employes.
The information they receive in this way
will proyo to be of an educational char
acter , ami will furnish them with material
whereby in the future they can decide
more wisely as to strikes and udvuuces
and other labor matters.

FARING THE FODDER LAND.
Rival Eatlroads Rushing for the Steak
Plains of Wyomingi
An Infusion of Outside Lucre Stirs
the Latent iMicrglcB of Cheyenne
A Stirring Ycnr for the
CnnrnxNR , April 2J. [ Correspondence
of the llnu. ] Wyoming appears to bo on
Jio verge of a boom which has never
been equalled , nnd which even the oldest
liners have not so soon anticipated.
The advance of the Chicago & North
western extension which is known in
Nebraska as the Fremont , Elkhorn &
Missouri Valley , nnd in Wyoming as the
Wyoming Central has stimulated the
Burlington & Missouri and the Cheyenne
& Northern , and all three railroads will
bo pushed as rapidly as possible. While
liere a short time ago , Charles Francis
Adams and Fred L. Ames subscribed for
? lfiOOOOOof the stock in the Uhoyenne&
Northern , thus glviiui them onu-n.ilf tins
whole amount. This insures the con
struction of the road , of which fully 125
miles must bo built in two years from
February JJOtlt , and which will bo built , it
is Mutud , in a yi-nr nnd n half. The
Hurlinglon , in the meantime , is creeping
up the i'latto with its nurvuy , and yester
day plats were filed in the land ofiico
showing the corrected route of the Wy-
omlnir , Montana , & Pacific railroad. This
Icads'up the Platte , mainly on the north
bank , and meets the Northwestern ex
tension at Fotternmn , whence it parallels
it westward to the mouth ot the Sweet
Water river. The Wyoming , Montana &
Pacific is believed to bu the H. & M. , al
though there is no documentary evi
dence of that fact.
Now what are all these railroads after ?
The cattle shipping business , it is true , is
ono incentive ; but it is not enough , in
the aggregate , to solely justify the con
struction of one railroad and its opera
tion through nine months , when there
are no cattle to ship. Is the transconti
nental connection the motive ? This may
be true of the Northwestern , but hardly
of the B. & M. It is believed that the
talisnmnic star which is leading these
companies fo the expense of millions is
the oil iu central western Wyoming.
That it is there no ono has over doubted
since the first discovery of huge basins of
encrusted overflow from constantly dis
charging springs. That it will pay toget
it is probably what the preliminary sur
veys of these two companies have estab
lished , and for the oil the rival corpora
tions are racing.
While attention is thus drawn toward
central Wyoming the whole territory is
experiencing a decided and probably per
manent stimulus. Cheyenne's gnwui is
remarkable , and the city now can hon
estly claim 10,000 inhabitants. The de
mand for laud in all parts of the terri
tory is extraordinary in more than one
way. The Big Horn basin , which is still
in part unsttrvoycd and to a great extent
unknown , will see fully fifty exploring
parlies by the first of June. All have the
one object in view : to secure such farm
ing anil stock raising locations as will
prove profitable in the future. At the
land ofiico in this city the daily receipts
urc now $2,000 , and three days last week
saw $15,000 passed over the counter into
the receiver's hands.
It is pretty certain that the locomotives
of the Northwestern will be whistling at
Fotterman by September 1. Those of the
