A. .Square Ilnok Down.
Mr. Edmunds and his third resolution
received another black eye on Thursday
from republican senators nnd republican
voles. The one ciwo upon which the
senator from Vermont hinged his causa
nnd on which ho brought on his contest
between the senate and the president
was quietly and peacefully disposed of in
executive session on Thursday
with scarcely a gnrglo of
dissent. A Washington dispatch
gives the history of this sad nflair as
follows : When Senator. . Edmunds de
cided to bring on the contest between
the senate and the president concerning
the richt of the former to demand any
papers the executive might have regard
ing a person suspended from oliico ho
selected as a peg upon which to hang
the struggle the nomination ol John D.
Burnett to succeed Gcorgo M. Duskln ,
suspended from the oliico of United
Suites district attorney of Alabama. It
was upon the refusal to furnish the papers
in this case that the judiciary committee ,
under the lead of Mr. Kdmunds ,
presented the report to which was
attached the famous resolution calling
for the rejection of all such nominations
as that of Uurnctt. No sooner had Mr.
Kdmunds' secured the adoption of the
resolution than it was freely predicted
that the senators wco voted for it in open
session would not live up to it in secret
sessions , but everybody believed that it
would at least bo regarded in IJurnolt's
case. There were no charges against
Burnett's character , or any intimations
that ho was not qualified to hold the ollice ,
but lie was to be rejected because the
president would not give up private pa
pers to the senate. The programme has
not been carried out , and Mr. Bur
nett lias been confirmed. It hap
pened that while lii.s nomination was
pending in the senate Duskin's
term expired. The president sent in anew
now nomination of Burnett , this time to
fill the vacancy caused by the expiration
nf DuBWtj ; ar Ii Jnlo7us reached
the other daj' , and ho was confirmed so
easily and quietly that some of the senators
did not notice .that his name had been
read at all. The fact of his continuation
has not j'ot boon olllciallj * made public ,
and it is reported that one of the ropub-
lican.soiiatoi'3 entered a motion to recon
sider the vole , which will have the effect
of holding up thu matter until the mo
tion is disposed of.
Mr. Edmunds' third resolution was
sheer buncombe. It passed the senate
by the skin of its teeth , because senators
who were too cowardly to vote against it
on the floor of the senate chamber
agreed among themselves to disregard it
behind the closed doors of tlio secret ses
sion. Its threats have not been carried
out in a single instance because they
never were intended to be carried out.
Senator Van Wyck had the courage of
his convictions. Ho declined to support
the resolution in open session because ho
has always declined to pose before the
public in one attitude and act privately
in another. The action of the senate
since the passage of Mr. Edmunds' reso
lution has vindicated Senator Van
Wyck's position , while it has shown up
the skulkers in no vcrv enviable light.
Homo Rule Prospects.
The bitter opposition which Mr. Glad
stone's measures for Irish relief awakened
upon their first announcement is rapidly
subsiding. Three weeks ago the failure
of the homo rule bill was confidently pre
dicted by a heavy majority , a largo part
of which was to come from the liberal
ranks. To-day its passage to its second
reading is conorally conceded and tno
contest is postponed almost by common
consent until after its consideration in
committee. Under the parliamentary
procedure of the house of com
mons a measure may be
killed at three stages. The
house may decline to consider it on the
motion for leave to introduce. It may
again throw it overboard after its intro
duction , and before amendment on the
motion that il bo passed to the second
reading. This motion carries it into
committee of the whole for general dis
cussion and amendment , after which the
bill may bo llnally disposed of when mit
upon its passage. Mr. Gladstone's mea
sures have passed their first stage. Their
more introduction without divis
ion marked an epoch in Eng
lish history. Five years ago the
government could Jiavo boon over
thrown on the bare official proposal
of home rule. An English parliament
would have Declined to Jimon oven to
William K. Gladstone in explanation of
such a measure ns that which loss than a
month ago ho presented to an overflowing
house of English wealth , aristocrauy nnd
intelligence. There is little doubt now ,
siueo the Easter mas ? has given oppor
tunity for discussion nnd dohatothat both
the home rule bill and the land bill will
pass to a second reading. This means
that parliament is not only will
ing to listen to the measures
for the rcliof of Ireland but to discuss
them. Mr.Morloy'a speeches have greatly
contributed in fostering a favorable ) pub
lic opinion. He has announced that the
cabinet arc united in their support of Mr.
Glndslono'd mo.ttmrcs , and that the min
istry will not oppose amendments which
do not strike at the vital features of the
bills. In other words , the ministry are
prepared to make reasonable concessions
such as the majority may demand , m
order to secure their assent. Among
thu-rto Mr , Morley especially named the
exclusion of the Irish members trom
parliament ,
The prospect for the passage of the
Irish bills with doino modifications , grow
bi ighler day by d\y , Mr. Gladstone has
now , as ho always had , behind him the
solid body of thu English , the Welsh and
the Scotch liberals. Birmingham and
London may show opposition , but ( hey
will bo more than compensated for by
rural Great Britain. With the passage of
thu Irish bills by the commons will begin -
gin the end of the great struggle. Both
mnasurcs , in whatever form they may
reach the lords , will doubtless be thrown
out. Then will coma r. dissolution of
parliament , an appeal to the country
followed by the elnotion of a parliament
in which home rule will have a sweeping
and victorious majority.

Eitucntlon nnd the Tariff.
There nro symptoms of a speedy resus
citation of the Blair educational bill from
the pigeon holes of the committees on la
bor and education. The measure as
passed by the senate proposes to distrib
ute the small trifle of seventy millions
among the states -proportion to their
illiteracy. Nebraska , which has for
years , placed a high premium on educa
tion , will secure practically nothing ,
while Alabama , Mississippi , and other
southern states which made it a criminal
offense to tench ignorant blacks the rudi
ments of education , will revel in millions
as a reward for their policy of promoting
Quito apart from nuy rivally or jeal
ously about the distribution of the sum
proposed to bo appropriated by this
measure , it is bad In principle nnd ill
timed in its application. It is n premium
on illiteracy. This fact stands out clear
ly above all other objections to the meas
ure. Thu west , which over since its or
ganization into great status , has pursued
a w'lso and prudent poiluy of fostering
education and filling the youth for the
duties of citizenship should not be called
upon to-day to furnish states which have
pursued an opposite policy with the
means ' of correcting llio blunders of thu
This vast sum of seventy
millions has been accumulated in thu
treasury by national taxation. Custom
duties have furnished a largo portion of
it. The western farmers who pay more
than their proportion of the exactions of
the tariff have contributed largely to this
treasury surplus. They are not anxious
to see it dissipated among the southern
states by protectionist votes cast for the
Blair bill to prevent the argument o.f a
treasury surplus from being used as a
club to boat down thu inequalities of the
present tufti" . Evety representative
of the great manufacturers is
in favor of the Blair
_ bill. Every congressional lobbyist who
is working against any revision of the
tariff support it in the holy cause of edu
cation. These mon know very well that
the moment the bill becomes a law any
reduction of the tariff would bo declared
impossible. The arguments of tariff re
formers would bo promptly mot with
the answer that the treasury require
ments would not permit of any reduc
tion in the revenue.
Four years ago the opponents of tariff
revision centered upon the bill reducing
internal revenue taxes as a means to re
duce the treasury surplus and block the
path for a reduction in custom duties.
Failing in that they drafted the present
measure which passage would produce
the same results. It ought to be defeated
audit will be if the people understand
the real motive which lies behind it.
A Word AVItli Our Workinxmcn.
The workingmcn of Omaha are now on
trial with their fellow-laborers of the
whole country. Upon their conduct at
the present crisis depends their future
prosperity and welfare. It will take level-
hcadc'd , cool , temperate counsels to bring
about the improvement of their condition
which the laboring masses desire. It is
not simply a question of enforcing the
rights of labor and securing a proper
share of the products of labor for the in
dustrial class. It is conceded by all
thinking men that labor properly organi
zed has the power to enforce its just de
mands. But in making these demands ,
workingmen must not imperil success by
imponing unreasonable and extravagant
terms upon their employers. Such de
mands can only result in disaster to
labor , bcuausn it could not sustain itself
in the unequal struggle against capital
backed by public opinion.
Our workingmcn hayo , in the main ,
been prospering. The outlook for the
season is very favorable to an active de
mand for mechanics and laborers , and
their earnings will as a consequence be
greater. This will benefit the merchant
ns well as the workingman , providing al
ways that no enforced stoppage of work
occurs. There is sucli a thinE as going
to extremes. The demand for reduced
hours is within itself right and proper.
But. it is a serious question whether at this
time a change from ten to eight hours'
work with ten hours' pay would not bo
too radical and force u contest in which
labor would suffer more than capital by
paralyzing all industry and enterprise.
Tuko it for instance in the matter of
building. Capitalists who have not al
ready contracted for the erection of
blocks and residences would naturally
hold back and leava a large number of
mechanics and laborers idle for the sea
son. The same is true of manufac
turers. As a friend of labor , the
BEE would counsel moderation. A
reduction from ton to uino hours with
ton hours' pay would , it seems to us , bo a
fair compromise , which capitalists , con
tractors and workingmcn alike could af
ford to accept rather than to enter upon
a conflict , costly to all parties , damaging
to enterprise , and seriously retarding the
growth of Omaha.
Above nil things , workingmen should
not act rashly. They should take no
stops that they will regret or that they
will have to retrace , Those who are tem
porarily Idle should stay away from the
saloons. They need sober judgment in
fiottling any dill'urcnee.s or dilliculty.
The- great mass of Omaha workingmen
have families to support , many of them
have homes which are only partly paid
for , and < ill of them have their own pros-
purity at stake. They have shown on
former occasions that they are law-abid
ing , orderly and forbearing under the
worbl provocations , nnd we feel confident
that they will not belie their former
record ,
PnoiJAur.Y thn queerest demand made
yesterday by Chicago workingmen was
that of thu beer makers , who struck , in
addition to other demands , for an allow

the hours of 7 a. m. and 4 p. m.
IT is estimated that fully 20,000 work
ingmcn In Chicago yesterday won their
point for eight hours' work for eight
hours' pay. The- men who demanded
ten hours' pay for eight hours' ' work
were not quite so successful , In many
instances however , their demand has
bcuu taken under advisement.

Mr. Jefferson Davis is not saying qulto
ns much nowadays ns ho taid in 1801 , a
lllllo earlier than this In the year.
Twciity-fivo years ago ho made twenty-
live speeches on the way from Jackson ,
Miss. , lo Montgomery , Ala. He delivered
his alleged inaugural at Montgomery ,
February 17,1801. That Mr. Davis was
not a very wise man at that time wo have
sometimes thought oven the southern
people might some day bo able to ascer
tain. Ho said at Jackson thai there
might be war , but the union men of the
north little knew the southern heart nnd
endurance , We quote his words :
"England and l-rauee would not allow
our great staple to bo dammed 11(1 ( within
pur present lmitsthostnrving ! ; thousands
in their midst would not allow it. Wo
have nothing to apprehend from block
ade. But if they ntlempt invasion by
land wo must take thu war out of our
territory. If war must come , it msst bn
upon northern and not upon southern
soil. "
At Stevenson , Ala. , he said :
"Your border states will gladly come
into the southern confederacy' within
sixty days , as we will bo tlicir onlv
friends. England will recognize us , and
a glorious future is before us. Thu grass
will grow in thu northern cities where

AVliy nn Actor Reformed *

have under-gone a complete change. It
is a matlcr of public knowledge that few
men who trod the boards were such
abnormal tipplers as that talented
tragedian. But ho looks upon the wine
no more. Ho is a model of sobriety , and
his appearance is infinitely improved by
the fortunate change. Few know how the
reformation came about. I had it from
his oxvn lips.

was King Lear , tlio lines of which I am
no familiar with as you are with the
Lord's prayer. I came on , but , judge of
my dismay nnd nstonislnncnt when I
found out I could not remember a single
phrase or spcecli in the part , I sent the
call boy for a bottle of brandy , took a
couple of drinks and tried it again. The
result was Ihe same. My memory was a
blank. Then I slipped back lo my
dressing-room , look down n book of fa
miliar recitations , and tried one which I
had known for years and declaimed , I
might say without exaggeration , not less
than a hundred times. Not a line of is
could I remember. I tried more
brandy , but my memory con
tinued a blank. I was terribly
shocked. It seemed to me that I was
forever ruined , and that my profesion
had slipped out of my grasp , that this
was the beginning of imbecility , and that
I should wind up in a lunatic asylum I
rushed from the theater , jumped into a
hack , and directed the driver to take mete
to the oflice of a doctor in whom I had
utmost confidence , and who had often
braced me up when enervated from tlm
effects of a prolonged spree. Tlio fact
that I could remember the number of
his room filled me with inexpressible
delight. I felt that there was yet
some shred of intellect left nnd that
all was not lost. He told mo not to bo
alarmed , that my brain was not serious
ly affected , and promised that I should
bo all right within a month. But only
on one condition , and that was absolute
and rigid abstinence. I followed his ad
vice , though it was a hard pull at the
beginning and you see mo now better
than I have been for many n day , "
And ho looked it. The crimson nose ,
his most striking feature , wns toned
down so llutt little of the old Hash re
mained. His eyes were clear and bright ,
and ho seemed in every respect a now
man. '
A Witty Indiana Lawyer.
Detroit Free Press : A somewhat
eminent lawyer in Indiana , Judge 7 ,
given at times to bibulous conviviality ,
on appearing one morning on the streets
hi Washingtonin that state , wns accosted
by a minister of the gospel as follows :
"Well , drunk again , as usual , judge. "
To which Judge Z answered "So
am I , " and passed on.
The same la.vyer visited an Illinois
town and got on n spree. A police oflicor
told him if lie did not go to his hotel and
keep off the streets until he got sober ho
would be arrested nnd looked up.
To this the judge answered : "You
c.m't ( hie ) do it. "
"Why can't IV" inquired th ? officer.
"Because , sir ( hie ) , got no jurisdiction ;
this Is ( hie ) nn Indiana drunk. "
While getting shaved tills lawyer , who
is quite bnld-noadisd , wns attempted to
bo guyed by a doctor whose hair was
very profuse. The doctor said :
"Why , judge , you are getting quito
bald. "
To this the judge answered :
"Yes , brains and hair don't grow to
gether. By the way , doctor , I observe
that you have a line head of hair. "

A Continuous Procession ofSottlcrs
Extortlonnto Tolls nt Clark's
BHileo Proposed Division
of the Count- .
SII NEY , Nob. , April a ? . [ Corrospon-
ilunco of the HUB. ] The limnipintlou to
this state this j-ear Is slmpiy enormous.
The white \rngoii3 of the homo seekers ,
you might ns well say , nro nearly n con-
tlnuotis procession along the whole line
of the Platto. At every station thrro nro
piles nnd piles of machinery
of all kinds , household goods in endless
quantity , iuul variety , boxes of chickens ,
cows , calves nml n few plfis , niitl lots of
horses nnd mules. I believe Cheyenne
county will receive twice ns ninny settlers
tlors this year ns any other county in the
stato. Tlicro is now nlnrgc train of immi
grants going north of the North riatto
river ; tlioy cross the country following
the old Sidney trail going to Dcnttwood ,
up us far as Camp Clark. At this point
is Clark's ' toll bridge across the North
Platto. This brldgo was built , by the
present owner in the days of the early
discovery of gold in Dead wood , and the
rates of toll charged strikes the poor
homesteader us simply extortionate. A
bare statement of the rates of toll is nil
that is necessary to show that the growl
of the emigrant is not grounded in his
iinmagmaUon. Tnis is the rate :
1 WHKOII , 2 hot ses and dilver S3 00 and rider 100
1 giangcron toot 50
For each additional team 100
For each person In a wagon after tbo
ill Ivor 50
The rush across the North Platte at this
time makes a line income. Your cor-
rospomltmt/lou't know that this is a char
tered incorporation or u private enter
prise , and don't care , for cithur way it is
a gross injustice to the traveling public ,
and i hoj'o the next legislature won't lose
sight of Cheyenne pountv , but do some-
Using W'JiSffity Wih wireaiouaSfq
charges for toll across this bridge , that
gives evident signs of old ago at this
time. This enormous charge of crossing
the Platte on Clark's bridge is sowing
tl e seed that will eventually crush it.
Thu lumber is now on the road to build n
ferryboat twenty miles above Mr. Clark's
bridge , at the now town of Tabor , nnd it
lias been further talked of organizing a
bridge company to nut in a pile bridge
hero and charge at least decent rates of
toll. Tliis bridge built , nnd Kimball on
the North Plalte would bo Hut tranship
ping point for the territory north of the
North Plntto , being the most direct route ,
nnd is one that can be madp a good line
of road , but this will not relieve the set
tler on the North Platte east of Camp
There is a good deal of talk about di
viding Cheycnno county. It is proposed
by some to divide this county into six
counties. Cheyenne county as now con-
fctiluted is 101 miles east and west and 70
miles north and south , containing 7.280
srjuaro miles , being larger in urea than
either Massachusetts , Now Hampshire ,
Vermont. Rhode Island , Connecticut ,
Now Jersey or Rhode Island. If this
county is divided into six , each county , if
divided even , would give 1,215 , square
miles to each new county , or 770,0120
acres. This would make respectable
sized counties and would make a division
that would not bo changed in the future-
Anyone can see that there Is great econ.
ouiy in tinibhing un the division at once.
The Fellow's Wit Saved Him.
A brigade was encamped near Charles
ton , Va. , says Allen F. Hall in the Grand
Army Sentinel , and a guard had been de
tailed to protect the property of the citi
zens in the neighborhood and strict or
ders gjvon uzain&t foraging or taking
anything without paying for it. The
colonel of one of the regiments was out
one day with his stall'and all of a sudden
he came upon a private of his regiment
with a sheep on his back , evidently just
killed , lie rode up to the .soldier and
nskuil him : "Where did you get that
sheep ? "
Ho answered : "Up hero in the field. "
"Did you buy hiraV"
"No , sir ; I just killed him , so. "
"Why , don't you know that strict or
ders have been issued against doing any
thing like that ? "
"Jes , sir , I know it , and will toil you
how it was. I was going along the road
whistling the 'Star Spangled Banner , "
nnd this sheep held up ins head and
looked straight at mo and said Mia-u ,
ba-u , ' and , sir , I up and killed him , as I
won't allow anything to say 'ba-a' at mo
when I'm singing or whistling the 'Star
Spunglud Haulier. ' "
It is needles * to flay that the colonel
told him to go ahead. 'Tho fellow's wit
saved him that time.
