THE board of trade proposes to sco that
the Arkansas editors arc properly enter
tained wlion they visit this city next Fri
day. It will bo money well invested.
THE Herald culls loudly upon the
local democracy to "trust Mr. Cleve
land. " The trust which the west lias ro-
poscd in the president 1ms boon rudely
shaken by Ins blind disregard of western
interests. New Yorkers can afford to
"trust" Mr. Cleveland. Ho has shown no
.inclination to go back on his local obliga
THE heart rending howls of the boodle
gang of editors against Senator Van
Wyck are not disturbing the sloop of the
senator and his friends. Ho has already
announced himself as a candidate for reelection -
election on his record and can afford to
patiently await the result. Nebraska and
the producers of the state have hud an
able , fearless and active representative in
the senate in the person of General Van , and they are not disposc-d to swap
horses while crossing : the political stream
of the coming canvass.
PUBLIC works have Dcgun at last. The
sewer contractors have sot their men at
work , and repairing of the Sixtconiu-
struot pavement has commenced. From
this time on there ought to bo no lack of
employment for Omaha's laboring men.
The grading , curoing and paving will
begin in a few days and hundreds of
workingmen will find places. When
building starts up as it always does in
Omaha several months later than in
other cities , the crv of labor for work
will bo drowned by the calls of contract
ors for workinemen.
THE job to build a railroad into the
Yellowstone park is still being vigorously
pushed at Washington. A majority of
the committee on public lands of the
senate is said to favor it nnd a strong
lobby is urging the measure. Those who
know best from a personal survey of the
ground are united in protesting against
the desecration of the national park.
They denounce the proposed railway as
uncalled for by any public demand and
ns promoted purely for the pri
vate gain of the incorporators.
The Yellowstone Park was reserved
for a national pleasureground. . It should
bo kept for the purpose far which it was
Intended. Harpy speculators and sharks
Bhould bo warned oft' the reserve. For

missioner ystom which the bill proposes
to Introduce as si regulator of interstate
commerce , The powers of thu commission

ftud will bo in ufloct simply an advisory
'board. The bill forbids discrimination
and. extortion in general terms , but pro
vides no cheap and ofl'octivo remedy for
the people. It wan drafted by a friend
of the railroad lobby and Is supported by
s number of senators who are notorious

IT Is diflloult to understand why the ro-
Iircoity | treaty with the Sandwich Isl-
fcnds should stand tiny clumco of being
runcwod. It was engineered through
aonuross in the lirst place in the interest
of Glaus Sprceklos and his sugar rollner-
ies , nnd every year of the operation has
put Immk'cd of thousands of dollars into
the pockets o ( the California monopolists.
Whim the subject was Urn broached , the
advocates of the treaty argued that thu
estimated loss of revenue to the United
States would be about $370,000 , and ns
t'.io total production of the islands could
pot bo largely increased , and would not
undtir any circumstances exceed 25,000- , ,
WO pounds of sugar per annum , our in-
erensod exports to the islands would

Mr. Olndstono'rt Second Speech.
Mr. Gladstone's second speech in advo-
cacay of his homo rule measure was nei
ther so long or as elaborate an argument
as his first great effort. It was naturally
devoted largely to answering the objec
tions raised to tiio bill as Introduced , nnd
to strengthening the position of the cab
inet. In opening , the premier took oc
casion to deny the charge which lias been
bandied from mouth to mouth during the
Easier recess , that ho had ever denounced
homo rub as incompatible with imperial
unity. On the contrary , ho showed how
more than fifteen years he had distinctly
alHrmcd his favorable leanings towards
self government for Ireland ns soon as ho
became convinced that it was desired by
the mass of the people nnd could bo safely
put into operation. Doth conditions
being in his judgment fullillcd , Mr. Glad
stone announced himself as bounu to
further the wishes of the Irish people
and the interests of the empire by afford
ing a just and necessary relief to Ireland.
Mr. Gladstone professed himself will
ing to modify that clause of the measure
excluding Irish members from West
minister by leaving the question opuu
for debate , to bo settled by the judgment
ot the house. Ho announced that the
government would not press this point.
In answer to other objections against the
bill he called upon the opponents to sug
gest a belter remedy for the abolishment
of discontent , and to restore social order
in Ireland. Ho appealed to Lord Hurting-
ton to shape his situation of the Irish
problem , if ho had any. Ho charged the
combined opposition with an ob
struction based upon prejudice , and
not upon considered judgment ,
and concluded amid prolonged
cheering by urging the commons to close
a long strife of seven hundred years by
the passage of the measure.
The prospects of the homo rule are
brighter than they wore before the Easter
recess and Mr. Gladstone's second speech
is buliovcd to liavo driven back into the
liberal fold several wavercrs who wore
ready to support Lord Hartingtou's mo
tion for the six month's postponement of
the consideration of the measure.
The Aiinwcr of Kxpcriencc.
Some of our ranchmen friends are in
clined to take exception to the position
of the BIE : in encouraging settlement , in
what they call the desert portion of
Nebraska. They shako their heads
wisely and insist that two years of
"grangoring" in the country west of
North Platte will satisfy the most ardent
farmer. They tell us that the elevation
is too great and the rain fall too scanty
in the section referred to for crop rais
ing and persist that the immigration
which is pouring into the range country
will be proved to bo a disastrous mis
It would not bo a sufficient answer to
say that our stockmen friends are too in
terested in opposing the loss of their free
ranges to give an unbiassed opinion on
the question , but it is a good answer to
reply that experience is opposed to their
position. The same argument has been
used for ten years in this state. The
time is not long past when farming
west of Grand Island was pronounced
imprncticablo. Six years ago the
Republican valley was to bo the home
steader's grave. Two years since north
western Nebraska was declared forever
unfit for any purposes except grazing.
But the range line , in spite of croaking
alarmists , has been pushed steadily west
ward and farms and farmers have taken
the place of grazing grounds and cow
boys. The frontier of ten years ago is
the corn belt of to-day. 'Whether the re
sult is duo to climatic changes , increased
rainfall , or to the sufficiency of the old
amount of rainfall under changed con
ditions of broken soil and increased vegi-
tation , the facts are the same. They stand
out in census reports , in the truflic re
turns of the railroads and the exhibits of
county and state agricultural exhibitions.
Success has followed the daring. The
men who pushed over the frontier ten
years ago were assailed with the same
arguments as the pioneers who are tak
ing up range land to-day.
The Bualuoav Situation.
With indications of closing labor troub
les , trade is beginning to show signs of
recovery. The disturbing effect of the
riotous outbreak's in Chicago and Mil
waukee and of the labor agitation in all
sections of the country has been felt in
uvory branch of.busincss miring the week
past. The movement of freight from
Chicago and other western centers has
boon comparatively uruull , and shipments
of manufactured goods have in many
cases been held back from the fear of in
terrupted railroad facilities or from a da-
sire to avoid additions to stocks pending
a settlement of the labor troubles.
Operations in most departments reflect
actual and immediate wants , and there
is general reluctance fo engage in new
enterprises or to Increase obligations the
fulfillment of which may be retarded or
made profitless by some new complica
tion in the labor situation. Under exist
ing conditions the business movument is
as us it could bo oxpceted to bo ;
but the Improving tendencies noted
at the outset of the spring season liavo
boon seriously checked by the develop
ments of the past few weeks , and in view
of the depressing inllupnces at work the
forecast of manufacturers and traders is
naturally dbitruitful unduncertain. Busi
ness failures in the United States ttud
Canada numbered 103 last week , as
against 207 the week previous , and 194
the wetik bnforo. There } H little now to

Export demand has been very moderate
both for wheat and corn , nnd there has
been very little animation In the specula
tive markets. The domestic visible supply -
ply statement at the close of the week ,
shows a decrease of 1,201,000 bushels of
wheat and 1,700,000 bushels of corn , while
slocks afloat for Europe show n small and
important Increase in both items.
The Union I'nciflc 1)111.
Senator Van Wyck and Congressman
Dorsey have promptly introduced in the
soimto and liottso the now bill to permit
the Union Pacific to borrow money in the
open market for the extension of feeders
to its main system. The bill , as offered ,
differs somewhat from the ono first
drafted by the board of trade. Ono re
sult of Senator Van Wyck's visit to
Omaha was the amendment of thn pro-
proposed measure so as to absolutely
protect the Union Pacific system
from a repetition of thb stock
jobbing schemes which have brjught
it so nearly to bankruptcy. The senator's
objections to the original draft wore free
ly discussed and mot and the bill which
he lias now introduced and to which ho
will give his best support , carefully
guards all the interests of the government
and the Union Pacific stockholders in the
matters which it is designed to cover.
Neither the people of Nebraska nor of tile
country tributary to the road are inter
ested in seeing the property crippled. In
so far as the government lias a lion upon
the Union Pacific , it is national pro
perty. The stringent legislation of
the past , which has tied its hands , was
forced upon congress to protect the road
from the thieves and jobbers who were
sucking its hearts blood and wrecking
the property to benefit inside rings in the
management Now that the Union
Pacific is surrounded on every side by
powerful rivals , although largely through
its own fault , there is every reason wiiy
congress should permit the company to
protect its interests and those of the
government by entering into active
competition for the traflic which is being
taken away from its control.
Nebraska , while remembering the past
history of the corporation and its treat
ment of her people , is equally interested
that the road should extend its branches
and give the state the benefit of compe
tition in competitive territory. The sen
timent in favor of the now bill , for the
relief of the Union Pacific , is general and
strong. This is the case , not because
Nebraskans or citizens of Omaha regret
or recall for one moment their past op
position to the previous policy of the
Union Pacific , but because they feel that ,
under the guarantees provided , the re
lief proposed will bo for the common
benefit , while it will in no way legalize
or endorse the swindling operations of
the Goulds and Dillons and other jobbers
who so long fattened from tyrannical op
pression of the people of the west.
THE sidewalks' on our principal thor
oughfares , especially on Farnam and
Douglas streets , should bo improved at
once. They should all be brought to a
grade and curb line , and be laid with
durable material. Among tho' lirst to
moyo in this matter should be the owners
of the Paxton House. The wooden side
walk , which surrounds that structure , is
above grade and docs not come to "the
curb line. It is a disgrace to the elegant
structure , and an eye-sore to the citizens
Now that there has been a general
settlement of labor troubles in Omaha
and tears of a season of idleness have
passed away , our people who had laid
plans for building should go rieht on
with the work. Omaha ought to double
her building record this year.
GLADSTONE and the liberal cabinet
stand firm for homo rule both in princi
ple and in application. The prophets
who predicted that the grand old man
would retrace his stops when the homo
rule bill came up for its second reading

A Monopolist President ,
New York Jlcrald.
Congress , early in March , passed a bill
giving to curtain farmers in Iowa the
authority to appeal in court in defense of
their rights to their farms , on which
many of them have been settled since
1855. Their titles are attacked by the
DCS Moines Improvement coniyany ,
which a great many years ago received a
grant of lands to aid it in cfleoting an im
provement of a part of thn DCS Moines
river. This corporation never effectually
completed its promised improvement ,
but it set up a claim not only to the lands
included In the original grant , which lay
along the proposed route of Its woik ,
but to a considerable tract lying else-
Both houses of congress have seen fit
to settle this dispute by allowing the
farmers to go into court und liavo u final
decision upon the question whether their
farms shall belong to them or to a corpo
ration which claims them for work not
done , and claims , us these who know the
case assert , much more than it would bo
entitled to if it had done its work.
Tlio president has chosen in his veto to
deny tlio poor farmers their right to n
day in court. Ho talks about thn sacredness -
ness of "vested interests , " and Migitosts
that if any "meritorious" farmers suiter
hardship and loss congress can make an
appropriation of money for them. In of-
effect no decides in his veto that tliu cor
poration's claims miint not bo disturbo'I ' ,
and if tlio farmers sufiea by that , so much
the worse for them ,
Wo trust congress will take a different
view ot this dispute ; that it will adhere
warmly to its opinion expressed in the
bill Mr , Cleveland has vetoed that the
farmers ought to have their day in court ,
Democratic ! congressmen are becoming

The limits of legitimate comment on
the approaching marriage of the pros !
dent appear to have boon trnnsgrossci
when tlio newspapers foil to speculating
on the identity of the person who is to
pay the expenses of Miss Folsom's Euro
pean trip and to foot the bills for her
trousseau. There is an insatiate demand
for gossip nowadays which may bo harm
lessly erutllicd , but there Is tv little bo-
youd which it is impertinent nnd inde
cent to go. Miss Folsom is entitled to
chivalrous treatment at the hands of the
American people whether she is to niarr >
the president or not. She is represented
as a most amiable young ladv , with
many graces ot mind and person , She is
not a pauper. Shu hns many relatives
who are respectable people. She is trav
eling In company with her mother , and it
is nobody's business who is paying the
expenses. It is to bo inferred that her
own family , probably her mother , is
lojkiugout for this part of the enterprise
and there is no reason to suppose that
anybody else 1ms anything to do with it.
In other respects the comments that
liavo been made on tlio approaching
white house marringn have been respect
ful and proper. It would be idle to sup-
Ijoso that the president of the United
Stales , who is nothing more than ono of
the pcoplu selected for a fixed term to act
as tliuir chief magistrate , couht bo mar
ried during his term of olllco without exciting -
citing more or less gossip. The village
bridegroom who is known to all does not
escape the good-natured bamlinngo of
his follows , and the president who is
n uilu ns conspicuous u target for the entire -
tire nation , cannot under the same cir
cumstances expect to dodge tlio witti
cisms , the conjectures , and the gossip of
tliii people , who feel that they have a pro
prietary interest in him
If these comments are annoying to Mr.
Cleveland it is because ho has postponed
for so long a time a duty which should
have bren attended to early in lifo.wliuu . ,
with younger blood and more buoyant
spirits , ho would have cured little for the
inevitable chatter. As a matter of fact ,
the White house is u poor place for nnmn
to marry his first wife. The uvuiago
citizen of the United States should bo
married long before lie reaches that man
sion. Mr. Cleveland's long neglect of
this important business is responsible for
whatever annoyance he now suffers.
Actors Who Cnn AildrcsB an Audi
That wns n , very neat speech Modjcska
made last Monday niglit in response to
the Elks' presentation. I do not know
whether it was impromptu , but doubtless
it was , for the lady is very lluent and
quick-witted. It is astonishing , however ,
to note how few people of her profession
are apt speakers under like circumstan
ces. At this moment Barrett is the only
only one 1 can remember , besides Mod-
jeska , who can step out of his part and
address an audience in improvised and
well-chosen language. This arises _ largely
from their constant habit of only
speaking in public the words which someone
ono cls > o has put jnto their mouths. The
continued use of one function of the
brain is only made at the expense of
others. There are very few actors who
can sneak correctly on the spur of the
moment half us much matter as is con
tained in this paragraph. I have heard
Irving s-tutter like a schoolboy over two
consecutive sentences , and Hartley
Campbell does not even scorn able to re
peat the speeches lie writes in advance
and has himself called out to speak.
Hot Spring" Gamblers.
A Hot Springs , Ark. , correspondent of
the St Louis Globe-Democrat writes :
There has been recently in the circuit
court , now in session here , a profusion
of gaming cases , and quite a number of
gamblers have boon mulcted. Upon in
formation coining to the knowledge of
the court , Judge Wood this afternoon is
sued an order to the slicrilVdireoting him
to search tlio establishment of 14. B.
Smith , " "et out all gaming devices con
tained therein and destroy the same. The
order was promptly carried out , and the
tables and implements wore dumped in a
pile on Central avenue , the main street
in the city , and burned. The burning
nile was viewed calmly by sports. The
late grand jury paid especial attention
to infringements of the gaming law , and
found a number of indictments. Judge
Wood had particularly charged the grand
jurors regarding the law , and laid stress
on the point that the payment of period
ical lines , which was virtually a licnnso ,
could not condone the oll'unso which the
statutes prohibit. One of the strictest
provisions regarding gaming is that
which causes the forfeiture of the license
of any saloon where gambling is per
mitted. Tlio knights of the erccn cloth
are raiding the lesson of the times , and
gambling is now defunct at this rosort.
