THE New England fishmongers art
quieting down In their demands that the

mackerel question. The nmphibiotif
Dolphin is scarcely a match for the entire
tire British navy.although it lias proved
qufto tho'Ctjual of Secretary Whitney ant

to uritanglo tlio fishery question , and he

gives the job up in disgust. Then congress
gross should cut the Gordian knot by cut

products of an ocean which is free to all ,
WHAT will follow the defeat of Mr
Gladstone's homo rule bill is uncertain
Tfio small majority by which themoasun

Where the Blioo Plnclics.
The dcspcrato fight which the lane
grant railroads are making in congrcsi
to prevent tlio forfeiture of their un
earned lands may delay the fin.il day o
reckoning , but cannot long postpone tin
settlement of a question In which tin
entire west is so vitally interested. Tin
debates on the bill to forfeit the unoarnct
Northern Pacific grant have brought on
some startling information regarding tin
reckless extravagance of the nation ii
squandering the public domain on spec it
lators nnd stock jobbers. The sun
total of lands donated to corpora
tloni cover an area nearly cqua
to the eight stales of Pennsylvania , Ohio
Illinois , Indiana , Michigan , Wisconsin
Iowa and Missouri , nn area equal to thi
empire of Germany , with the kingdom :
of Italy , Greece , Portugal nnd the Swis
republic thrown in. All of this Impcrla
domain was granted on certain fixed con
ditions with which In most instances thi
companies have not compiled. The bill :
to forfeit tlio grants nro In every instanci
based on the failure of the companies t <
comply with the granting law.
But the millions of acres of uncarnm
lands have been held for speculation
and are now Immensely . valuabli
to tlio great * speculators who Imvi
held them out of tlio market awaltingthi
inevitable riso. In thn case of the North
ern Pacific the proceeds of the govern
ment grants wore siilHsiont to uuild niu
equip the entire road , and tlio unearned
land remaining la valued at fron
$30,000,000 to $1)5,000,000. ) The smallci
sum has already been offered for it bi
English capitalists so soon as the fcai

This is where the shoo pinches. Evcri

corporation "fences" are attempting t <
secure a clear title. In the case of tin
Northern Pacific alone , the success of the
corporation attorneys in the senate menu :
a clear prolit of nearly a hundred million :
of dollars. Nearly seven years havi
passed since the date fixed by law wher
the unearned lands of that corporatlor
should have reverted to the government
but they still remain in the hands of thi
company. Th-jlr forfeiture would moai ;
a loss of millions to the men who have
milked the road dry by their stockjob

sale of lands which they do not own tc
put the road once more on its feet.
How Lone ?
It is amusing to watch the quarrel !
among the followers of the star-oycc
goddess of reform and to listen to the
volley of charges and recrimination !
which the rival factions of the democracy
nro Hurling at each otiier. The battle
cry of freedom , "a tariff for revenue
only , " has been changed to the slogan
"a government for its revenue , " and the
most frantic efforts of Messrs. Morrison ,
Ilolman and Handall have proved quite
insufficient to restrain the charges
which the democratic majority have beer
making upon the treasury. Col. Morri
son oven went so far as tc
remind his impatient friends that there
is a democratic majority in thn house be
cause it wna believed that the republi
cans had been wasteful and that demo
crats would bo more economical. But
all to no avail. With a democratic ad
ministration in power and democratic
officials handling the money , the last pro-
loilse at economy has vanished. The ng-
grcgato of appropriations for this year
will bo greater than over. A majority of
thn departments nnd their bureaus nsl ;
larger sums than overwore voted to them
under a republican administration. The
private bills introduced to tap the
treasury exceed all previous records ,
Jcflcrsonmn simplicity and Jacksoniati
democracywhatever their former signili
canco , have been stored away in the cap
itol collar with none so poor as to do them
reverence. There is genuine pathos In
the wail of a leading democratic journal
which exclaims Indignantly : "Jnst hea
ven I What statesmanship bursts upon
the country from Washington ! Pension
bills , education bills , subsidy bills , rivet
nnd harbor bills , public building bills-
bills by the thousand to deplete the treas
ury nnd saddle the industry of the coun
try with greater burdens ; but no time
nnd no inclination to consider a measure
for the reduction of'taxation ! How long
will the patienoo of the nation endure the
control of these prolligato representa
tives ? "
Sovcral Washington correspondents ,
who ought to know better , are informing
readers of the pawers for which they
write that Captain Maadon's promotion
in the army will make Lieutenant Grceloy
p captain. This , wo are told , will give
tfc p7i n7tr.Jll 5SafejpgoIne tlic

Daniel Madden from the Sixth cavalry tea
a majority In the Seventh will not at all
nlfect the present status of Lieutenant
Greoloy. Mr. Greeley will roach a cap
taincy only when a vacancy occurs
hi his own regiment by the promotion
of ono of its captains. By nrmy usage
promotions below the rank of Held olll--
cors are made rcgimimtally. Above that
rank , they are mndn according to lineal
seniority. A lieutenant may stand at the
head of the. list of lieutenants in tlio
army for years audsco himself "jumped"
by his juniors time and again , so long an
vacancies occur -in the rank of captains
in oilier regiments thr.n his own , The
promotion must come in his own regi
This Is manifestly unfair and unjust.
The rule was originally adopted to pre
vent the expense necessary to make fre
quent transfers of otlicors from ono
regiment to another. The army was
then widely scattered and long overland
journeys , before the ago of strain had
brought every military post within rcas-
son.iblu tinu distance of each other , had
to bo made when nllicors passed from 0110
station to another In tliflorcnt sections of
the country. For this reason a system
was adopted which retained ollicers In
regiments which they joined as a second
lieutenant , until they leave to put on the
major's opauletls. The result is that in
some rcgimouU promotions are slow , in
othrrs rapid , some ofllcors fortunate ,
others unfortunate in rising through the

3Ir. Glntlstonc's Defeat.
The defeat of Mr. Gladstone and his
ministry on the second reading of the
bill granting home rule to Ireland will
oomo with a sense of bitter disappoint
ment to thousands who have no personal
interest In the great issue which it in
volves. The commanding courage re
quired for the introduction of sucli n
measure , the brilliant oratory bv which
it was defended , nnd the masterful re
sources displayed hi each successive step
of lU progress have won for the author
and defender the sympathy nnd
admiration of two continent * .
Envy and mnllco have assailed
him nt every point , disappointed
ambition ha ? dug pitfalls along his course ,
and a corrupt coalition of opposing
political Interests bound together by the
tlo of hatred to the promie'r have nt lasl
succeeded in their supreme effort to tlis
ledge him from the position which fet
more than half a century lie has held ni
the leader of liberal England , It is n
singular instance of the Irony of fate
that the defeat of the premier was clueflj
due to the men whom ho had mndo il
possible. to sit in parliament ,
the representatives of an enlarged fran
chise and of borough reform.
The defeat of the present homo rule
has been expected for more than a montli
past and the effect on this continent has
been to seine extent discounted. It enl }
postpones for a time the inevitable. The
most bitter opponent of homo rule is un
willing to admit that it settles anything
move than the refusal of the present par
liament to vote for political autonomy for
Ireland on the lines laid down by Mr.
Gladstone. But back of parliament lies
the great English working classes , ami
that political party which has never yul
failed to respond to the master voice ol
tlio liberal leader when raised in
advocacy of right and of justice to the
oppressed. To them must the linal ap
peal bo made. The rejection of the home
rule bill transfers the struggle from thu
benches of parliament to the polling
booths of Great * Britain. With the dis
solution of parliament , which cannot
long bo delayed , will begin the mightiest
conflict which England has witnessed for

The Cable Ijfno Location ,
There is no good reason why -the cable

street if the company is so inclined. It ia
the natural thoroughfare to the west , the
grade is established to the city limits and
tiio traffic which it would furnish oilers
n strong argument in favor of the selec
tion. The street is wide enough to ac
commodate four tracks. Not more than
two would probably over bo occupied at
the same time , and even if all were for n
moment at a single point , used by the
street and cable cars , the public would
not bo inconvenienced. Farnam street ia

two tracks to bo operated along their

do this for no other street. Wo believe
that the cable company would bo glad to
see its wav clear to operate tbo line
west on Farnam. It would be money iu
the pockets of every lot owner if they
could sec their way equally clear to urge
them to no so. A handsome bonus to in
duce the location of the cable
oars on Omaha's leading thoroughfare -
faro would bo a paying invest
ment to those who contributed.
On some of tlie other streets proposed the
grade is not yet fixed and on none have
pavements yet been laid beyond the rise
of Capitol hill. If some of our energetic
merchants on Farnnm street would take
hold of this question and push it for all
there is in it , property Owners along the
street could readily bo brought to see
where their interests lie or do not lie in
permitting any other thoroughfare to
reap the benefits of rapid transit.
Trin house lias passed the bill for the
repeal of t'.io pre-emption , timber cul

mains to bo seen whether the senate will
do its duty. If the republicans of the
senate act in accord with the notional
platform of the party they cannot do
otherwise than pass the bill. The repub
lican party through its national conven
tion declared itself in favor of thu aboli
tion of all laws for the benefit of land-
grabbers , and insisted that the remain

served for the honest , actual home
