The suggestion that a tax bo placed on foreign immigration is raising a howl in some quarter * where it ought to bo least expected. The organs of the capitalist manufacturers who h.ivo amassed their wealth by the operation of high tariff taxes on the products of labor are the most bitter in denouncing tlio proposal as un-American and preposterous. They decline to admit the Injustice of raising the prices of everything that a workingman - man buys by shutting out foreign goods and lowering the prlco of American labor by opening wldo the doors to the f reo competition of foreign worklngmen. They pretend not to sco that wages are high or low in proportion to what they will buy and that where competition is prevented in marketing goods while com petition is stimulated in labor itself only onn sldn reaps the chief benefit of the re stricting lav. If our present system of exorbitant tar iff luxation is to bo indefinitely continued the workingmen of America will surely bo found insisting that tlio protection theory shall be can led to Its logical end. The tariff is now a tav for the benefit of capital There must bo a correspond ing tax for the bencllt of labor. Capital Is now protected from the competition of foreign mamtfacturorors. Labor will soon bo demanding protection from the competition of foreign laborers. There Is no know-nothinglsm in such a position. It will bo forced upon the country by the greed of the great indus trial monopolists who are able to screw wages down to the lowest possible notch by tlio pressure of competition in a labor market already ovcrciowded and re ceiving now acquisitions from every emigrant ship. But there Is a bolter solution of the problem. That is a radical reform of tariff taxation. The country is still suf fering from over-production because our exorbitant customs duties have closed to us the markets of the world and restrict ed our manufacturers to the home mar kets. In addition they have enhanced the cost of living and decreased the pur chasing power of the workingmen's ' del lars. A reduction of the tariff which would take off the duties from ho neces saries of life and make raw materials frco , would relieve labor and open new markets for the products of labor. It might reduce somewhat the profits of the industrial monopolists , but it would greatly onlareo the commercial field in which they could dispose of their wares With the cost of living lessened , and in creased employment given to workingmen - men , there would soon ccaso to be any more suggestions about restricting immi gration. But as longas competition in selling goods is stilled for the benefit of the industrial monopolist , the question of ofisettmg the evil by stilling competition in the labor market is bound to como to the surface. As wo have said before , it is simply carrying out tlio high protective theory to its logical end. Extravagant Scientists. The investigation into the extrava gance of the geological survey has brought out the information that at the present rate of progress $17,000,000 will bo required to complete the work of map ping out the country accoraing to the present programme. Congress naturally feels that tins enormous amount of money could bo put to bettor advantage , and it is quito right. If the true inwardness of the survey business were brought to light it would make a very interesting chapter. Ilayden worked the mine for all that it was worth , while his parties of incompetent boys and needy relatives "explored" and ro- explored the territories ot the west. A more shameful fraud than some of the reports printed under the sanction of the government under Hay don's manage ment was never perpetrated. Hundreds of thousands ot dollars were invested in printing private researches carried out by college professors and warring scientists for their own private bonoilt. Professor Capo , of Philadelphia , succeeded in getting his descriptions of fossils nobly illustrated and published by the government in the highest style of art , free of all cost , nnd now Professor Marsh , of Yale , is engaged in the aamo business at national expense. Volumes of the report of the geological survey are filled with valueless essays on industries which have' only the most re mote connection with the work of the survey , Other volumes simply duplicate or correct the poor work in preceding volumes. Extravagance , verbosity and repetition , with an immense accumula tion of useless facts with little or no bearing on the objoctn for which the sur vey was created , have boon the crying defects of its administration. It is not to bo denied that some good work has . been done , but it has been entirely disproporlionod to the oast. The larger part of the money spent has been wasted , It is an opcs'so- crct that several years ago-- Professor Hayden was paid heavily by Clarence King to permit iii fto reap the full bene fits of tHa government's generosity. The bill to consolidate the surveyH nnd limit their scope which is now before congress , is a good one , and should pass. ! in. . . . ! . . , miiimm * County Grading. If there is any thing like an equalization of the assessment this ycnr , both the city and county will be put in a financial con dition to carry out many needed improve ments. This will bo especially the case with the county in regard to grading , The rapid extension of Omaha beyond the present city limits and along the va rious leading thoroughfaics wcbt and south will make heavy demands upon tlio grading funds. As Omaha nnd its sub urbs pay more than nine-tenths of the entire - tire county tax , it Is right and proper that the expenditures for her benefit si ould bo proportionately largo , The county commissioners are recognizing this fact to some extent by making the city more accessible than it has boon to the adja cent country around it , But the direc tion which building operations and con sequently local travel have been taking for a year past over the hills and into the county readers it all the more important that the commissioners should at once make their preparations to extend an d straighten the roads which follow the lines of Omaha's principal streets into tha country and to establish fixed grades BO that purchasers ot county po | > erty can build without fear of future disturbance. The .commissioners have done good work in grading street oxtonslons into the county , but tlioy should now strain every effort to increase the amount al- ready accomplished. Farming lands around Omaha are now becoming ex ceedingly valuable on account of their nearness to our markets The people In the county no less than the citizens of Omaha have a right to demand easy ac cess into the city and through the suburbs , Every street graded outs'do ' the city or in the varloas additions ad jacent to the principal county roads means a stimulus to building nnd an in * crease in the county tax list. The work done on Farnnm , Cuming , Thirteenth and Lcavonworth streets by the county commissioners has been a handsome In * vestment of county funds. It has ma terially increased trade facilities for our farmers and Improved the adjoining property. If it has not raised thn tax llsta no ono but the assessors nro to blame. Oooil Salaries I'ny. Assistant Secretary of the Interior Jcnks has resigned to take u position as advisor to a young millionaire at a salary of $10,000 a year. Mr. Jcnks' retirement is a loss to tlio public service. It affords another instance of the wisdom of a policy of high salaries for valuable pub lic ofliclals. Tnlont and ability command their prlco everywhere. A $10,000 law yer , except in exceptional Instances , will decline to bo a $2,690 judge. A business man who can earn his $5,000 a year in tr.ulo will not bo strongly atractcd to a responsible public position which will bring in only half that amount. England learned this lesson long ago. Her officials are huulsomoly recom pensed for their labors. There is a strong pecuniary inducement for honorable ri valry for responsible offices. Men are not expected to make heavy sacrifices to servo the public. On the contrary the government places a premium on men of brains and successful administrators. It bids for the best and It gets them , be cause it is the highest bidder. In the older settled states of this coun try the same policy has been adopted with the judiciary. Judges are given long terms of olllco and salaries suilicicnt to attract successful and brainy men to thn bench. Some of these days Nebras ka will learn the lesson that in public of ficials as well as in everything else the best is in tlio long run the cheapest , even if it docs not happen to bo the lowest priced. Good salaries pay. IN another column will bo found an aiticlo from the BIB regarding the Inelllclency and general incompetcncy of Maishal CummuiRS * and his force to all of which the Herald Kives clieprtul endorsement Hcritld. The BEE has not referred directly or indirectly to Marshal Ctimmings as the Herald very well knows. The marshal is no more responsible for the selection and pay of the force than the editor of the Herald. The trouble lies with the system under which couneilmcn appoint their favorites to places on tlio force and pay political debts at the expense of the public. Incidentally since the Herald has raised the question , wo will take occasion to re mark that under Marshal Cummings' ad ministration the police force is better disciplined and managed than it has been for years before , while the fines collected foot up nearly double what thox did under his predecessors. The marshal is all right. What wo want is n bettor calibre of roundsmen , more of them , a graded pay roll , and a reform in the system which will take the police force out of politics. Tun council took prompt action in re gard to labelling the streets at its last meeting by instructing a committee to confer with the gas company and to as certain the cost of having the names painted inside the street lamps. The matter is u pressing ono , and should bo pushed until the work Is done. Sign boards on the street corners are also needed , but they should bo simple strips with the narnq of the street in white with a dark background. The offer of a company to furnish the same in combina tion with their own advertisement showed enterprise , but naturally did not meet with favor. Any oneof a dozen patent medicine firms would gladly make the same contract , LIEUTENANT GOVEUNOH Ginns , of Texas , promises Cleveland 250,000 ma jority in that state if ho takes a wife and runs for the presidency again. It is pretty safe to bet that Mr. Cleveland will be married next month , but it is by no means certain that ho will bo nominated for the presidency in 1888. There is a wide difference between matrimony and politics. Mn. GLADSTONE lias carried. Ills motion to push the consideration of the homo rule bill by devoting four-fifths of the time of parliament to its consideration until i ts finally disposed of. The streugth of the ministerial party in the ' 'commons was the first surprise which the grand old man gave to the enemies of homo rule. Perhaps the next will bo the puat > age of the bill. Pnoi-Kimr owners gji Tarnam street should mpye . at once in securing tlio cable line. The street is the only one running out of the city west which has a well established grade suited in all re- spools for the puposcs of the company. Other things bomg equal , the cable com pany would prefer to locate the line on Omaha's leading thoroughfare. TnK council has taken action in regard to street signs by referring the matter to the committee on. public property and improvements , to make a contract with some painter for doing the work. It is hoped the committee will not pigeon-hole the resolution. Wnv talk about more parks BO long as Hanscom park , a most beautiful and pic turesque spot , is most shamefully neg lected by the city ?
