THE accidental omission of the nama
' of Cincinnati in the telegraphic reports
of the last week's ' clearings , is made the
subject of a bogus interview with a bogus
banker in n little sheet published in
Omaha. This paper is charged with in-
lontionul inaccuracy for the purpose of
booming Omaha. Picking up typograph

journalism in this city are as full as those

fa iwlies.
WOIIK has been begun on the extension
of the North Omaha main sower. No
public works m which this city has been
engaged of late years has been of greater
importance than that done on the sewerage -
ago systems. Tor many years the heavi-
oil death rate in Omaha was in tlio wards
traversed by the creeks whoso open beds
were used to carry oil' the drainage of
I ho oily. The engineering problem of
how to utiliw'tlii ! creeks or portions of
their beds for main sewerage drains has
buen successfully solved aud the result
lias fully justified the expenditure. Pliy-
sioinns notu this year a steady decrease
in typos of malarial disease and especially
so in those section ! through which the

towards advancing these 'two arteries of

Tito Vote Will UP Tolled.
The latot reason for objection to General -
oral Van U'yok's appeal that is urged by
the railroad tircss is the fear that a popu
lar vote would injure the senator's
chances. Wo are told that , as matters
now arc , Van W.vck can go before the
legislature- claim the popular scnti-
nil-lit , while if a light vote was polled on
Ids manifesto or if tlio vote was not a
clear nnd overwhelming majority of till
tins votes polled for state ollicers the sen
ator's chances would bu materially dam
The solicitude- the railroad press for
Senaior Van Wyck's Interests is very
npthclic , Tlio senator and his friends , the
people , arc quite able to look after the can
vass without such assistance. So far as the
slxo of the vote is concerned there need
bo no fears. The voters of Nebraska pro
pose to exwoiso their privilege under the
law and to show their preference as they
have a right to do. The returns from
oaeh county will leave rcMU'osontativci
no excuse for disregarding the expressed
wishes of their constituents. They will
show tliu total viHu , and the vole on the
senatorial question. No representative
need be for a moment in doubt as to what
is the real sentiment of his district on the
In addition the republicans of Nebraska
who have been hoodwinked so often
by the politicians propose to see that
members are olootcd to the legislature
who will voieo the will of the people in
the senatorial election , Tlie stool pigeon
and corporation cappers will be bliown a
back seat and honest and fearless ru pub
licans chosen to take their places.
The abuse and ridicule which the mo
nopoly hirelings nro heaping on Senator
Van Yi'yck's appeal is intended to oll'set ,
if po. siblu , its force and to prevent the
voters from complying with tlio constitu
tional proviso. Nothing would so quickly
knock the underpinning from other sena
torial candidates as a heavy popular vote
for Van Wyck , with the cold figures icg-
istercd in every district where east , a pop
ular mandate which representatives
would not dare to disobey.
The Ciimpnlmi in Maine.
The campaign of tlic Maine republicans
was formally opened at Lake Sebago on
Tuesday with u carefully prepared speech
by the lion. James ( . ! . Hlaino. Political
circles throughout the country have
awaited this utterance of the distinguished
republican leader in tlio "Pino Tree
State" with somewhat more than ordi
nary interest , anticipating that it would
sound the Ikoynoto of the party generally
for the ensuing fall contest. It has been
known for several weeks that Mr. IJlaiuo
was pieparing tiiis speech , and news
paper statements had credited him with
the intention of making it an effort of
surpassing vigor , both as a presentation
of republican policy and an arraignment
of democratic mistakes and inollicionoy.
The high expectation induced by this
promise will , we arc free to say , bo in a
measure disappointed. The impression
left by the speech is one of imulcquacy.
One completes its perusal with a sense
that something is wanting , and that the
author had held himself in check
and kept something in reserve. It
lacks tlm energetic vigor and the aggres
sive virility which [ are looked for in the
public eflbrts of Mr. lilainc qualities
quite as characteristic nnd essential as
their generally strong array of facts and
incisive login. This is not to bo ex
plained on tlio assumption that Mr. lilainc
depreciated the extent of tlio arena in
which for the moment he was the com
manding figure. Doubtless no ono un
derstood better than he that the republi
can party of the nation was his audience.
Nor is it likely that ho failed to appre
hend the present importance of n
thorough discussion of principles and
policies when the two great parties arc
actively preparing to confront cacli other
in a contest for the next house of repre
sentatives. The more probable explana
tion is in u feeling , suggested in tlio open
ing paragraph of Mr. IMainc's speech ,
that it is not yet time to boldly challenge
in condemnation of the democracy "tho
American instinct of fair play , which de
mands that the party freshly installed
may have free opportunity and full time
to lay out its ground and mature its mea
sures. " It is to be said of this that it is at
least a remarkable concession for Mr.
lilaino to make , though it may be en
tirely wise and prudent.
Mr. lilainc gives precedence to the
tarifl' question , respecting which his
views are of course unchanged. Ho be
lieves fully in the cllicacy of the protec
tive policy , and like other advocates of
this form of taxation of the
many for the benefit of the few , is able
to present a largo array of specious and
sophistical facts and arguments in sup
port of- his position. In the present in
stance Mr. lilaino confines his appeal
ohiotly to the workingmcu , whom ho
SOUKS to specially impress with the ad
vantages of protection by a comparison
of the savings of labor in nine states of
this country and in Great Britain during
u given period. It must bo grunted that
the showing is very much to the advant
age of the slates , but it cannot bo logic
ally hold to prove that the policy of
protection should be interminable , or
because it swells the savings bank ac
counts of a few hundred thousand labor
ers in Now Kngland it is right and itist
regardless of the fact that it robs millions
of farmers in every section of the
country. Regarding the labor question
Mr. lilaino has very little to offer from
which workingmun can derive any enlightenment -
lightenment or encouragement for ad
vancing their interests , He confesses that
he has "no now nostrums to oiler for the
euro of the labor troubles , " Keduced to
its simplest form the counsel of Mr.
lUaino is : "Maintain the protective
tarifl' , " The one salient point of value
in this portion of the speech is the atten
tion directed to the competing labor of
the colored population of the south ,
which is being gradually utilized in all
departments of industry. and the
necessity there is for elevating this labor
so that it may become self-protecting ,
and not grow into a power morn danger
ous oven to the white labor of the country
than is the so-culleU pauper labor of
Europe. This Is unquestionably a matter
of very grave importance , which may
well command lliu serious attention of
the labor Interests.
Regarding the fishery question Mr.
Hlaino is in full sympathy with tlio
sentiment of Now Kngland , which is
undoubtedly shared to , a largo
degree by the country , at least 10
the oitent of desiring that thn nationa
rights and interests hlinll be adequately
protected mid the national dignity prop
erly maintained. The mistakes and
shortcoming * of the mi ministration in
dealing with' this issue arc pointed out
with rather more moderation than had
boon expected , but with ampin detail ,
nnd it must bo said that Mr. lilalno has
let olVMr. liayard with n very mild cas-
tigalion. The course pursued toward
Mexico is pharncteri/cd ns "an un
dignified display of insolence anil brav
ado , " with which view a great many
people will disagree , while at the sumo
time acknowledging that the hasty action
of the government , without being sure ns
to the facts , was a mistako. Mr. Hlaino
concluded his speech with a very proper
denunciation of tliu third party prohibi
tion movement in Maine which appears
not to have a single motive , or aim to
commend it.
It will bo seen that this speech of Mr.
Itlamo , of whii-li somucli was expected ,
refers to only a few , nnd not all of tho. o
the most important , of the issues that
maxo a demand upon the attention of tlio
country and are proper subjects of pres
ent consideration. If the omissions
may properly bo attributed to a wise
circumspection , tlio speech must be com
mended for what it does not say rather
than for wiiat it contains.
Tlm Jiiilarinii | Revolution ,
The political kaleidoscope in the
Halkans has made another turn within
the last twenty-four hours. The agents
of Russian intrigue have been overturned
by tin outraged people and an indignant
soldiery. The ministers at Sofia arc in
prison. Witldin , the next largest city of
United Bulgaria , is in arms to demand
the return of their prince. For the
moment Alexander's friends seem to have
carried the day and the prince has been
sent for to resume his rule. A few more
hours may change tlio complexion of
Alexander's career 1ms naturally and
properly endeared him to his subjects.
He found them disorganized , disunited ;
their principality the scene of alternate
Russian and Turkish intrigues ; their
mountains the pathway by which the
c/.ar hoped to enter Constantinople and
the Balkans the firebrand of contention
among tlio warring European diplomats.
By brilliant statesmanship he lifted Bul
garia to n position of independence
which she had never before possessed ,
added Eastern Roumelia to the territory
and secured the consent of Turkey and
the great powers to the union.
Ho faced invasion troiu Sorvia
anil by his personal bravery
drove back with his army the invaders
from the frontier in ignominious rout.
Bulgarian arms placed the seal on the
statesmanship of Bulgaria's leader.
The popularity and force of character
of Alexander were responsible for his
fall. Russia could not brook a prince
holding the Key to the Balkans who de
clined to bo a tool lo the ministers of the
czar. Muscovite agents in Sofia wore
scut to work to aceomnllfh what M. do
Giers found himself tumble to do through
ordinary diplomatic methods. The
secret seizure and forced abdication of
the prince , followed by his disappear
ance from the country , was repre
sented to lliu people as the
voluntary act of their ruler. Garbled
dispatches Hashed the same news to the
civilized world. Now the populace hav
ing discovered the plot have seized tlie
plotters and loudly demand the return of
Alexander to his people anil his army.
Whether ho will bo permitted to return is
the agitating question. Russia > YiH cer
tainly leave no stone unjuraed to pre
vent it.
anil Silvnr.
Silver is still falling. The market value
of the metal in a silver dollar is now only
sovcntyono : cents. Congress at its last
session did nothing to arrest the decline.
Coinage still continues , but even free
coinage lias not checked the Xlownward
tendency. All schools of financiers
admit that the point will soon bo reached
when cheap money will begin to seriously
iill'ect the material interests of the coun
try , and particularly tlio classes who
earn their bread by honest labor. Any
movement , therefore , which looics
to bridging over the discrepancy be
tween the gold and the silver dollar will
ho hailed with satisfaction. The news
that the Salisbury ministry has agreed to
appoint a commission to discuss tlio pro
priety of rcmonotizing silver gives hope
that the United States will not bo com
pelled much longer to attempt single
handed to maintain the credit of silver.
The return of England to a double stand
ard would mean another large outlet for
tlio world's silver production , a corresponding
spending increase in the purchasing
power of the silver dollar and a decrease
in tlio paramount , value of gold. AH
a matter of fact gold has ap
preciated as much us silver
lias depreciated during the last two de
cades. Whatever tends to throw the
world of commerce upon its inadequate
supply of gold as the only material for
coinage must helpto force up the vuluo
of gold as compared with commodities
generally. The United States has been
the only monetary power so far which
has set itself lo counteract this tendency.
Our failure has been duo to the fact
that wo have fought alone. With nn in
ternational agreement for the romonetiza-
tion of silver the tldo would quickly turn
and silver would take its place side by
side with gold as the money of the
world. England's movement will bo
watched with interest.
MEXICO claims the right , nnd exercises
it , to punish an American citizen for an
oll'ensG against her laws committed on
American soil. According to u Wash
ington dispatch , however , thereis a
special treaty clause which warrants
Mexico in rctusing to surrender ono ot
her citizens for trial in the United States ,
even though he may have murdered an
American citizen , as was tlio case with
Aresures , n few weeks ago extradited by
a Texas judge , carried into Mexico , and
shot down iu cold blood on the pretense
that ho was trying to escape. At first
glauco it would seem that this is a de
cidedly one-sided arrangement.
THE fact is noted that the present
summer has been marked by exceptional
freedom , the world over , from dreaded
diseases. Not only is our own country
free from the visitation of any epidemic ,
but the whole world is thus far exempt
from pestilence of any sort. True , there
is some cholera In Italy and Japan , but
It is not ot startling viniloneoand doubt
less there is the usual mortality along
thp line of the Panama canal , which , not to be classed as epidemic ,
Ono of the m'ost fearful records of sum
mer mortality ig furnbscd annually by
Now York city , tntiflotfp largely oi the
death of children , btit , u recent state
ment , bringing the rqtofl ! { tip to the last
of July , shows a cousiduf-ihlo reduction
as compared with tliOTeeords of several
previous years. On thi wiiolo tlio human
family has reason to lo grateful for the
present enjoyment of unusual freedom
from disease , and PVCMUI a few diplo
matic controversies which will doubtless
bo amicably settled , u general reign of
peace. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Tin : severe disasters sutl'orcil by the
cotton mill interests oi'Xi-w England dur
ing the past three injiitlis , from the
heavy defalcations of financial managers ,
have had an nwnkuninginlluenco iipon the
stockholders and director : ) of the.- cor
porations which cannot fail to be greatly
to their advantango. Mueh that lias been
said regard ing general loose and careless
supervision on tliu part of ehk-f officials ,
whieh rendered such peculations as these
of Gray and Siu-lling easy of accomplish
ment , appears not to have been well
founded , the fact being that these de
faulters were an exception among treas
urers in the extent of the privileges and
authority accorded to them. But it is
evident that the checks and safeguards
generally observed have not buen so
thorough as Is de.sinibli ! , and it is not de
nied by those mo-it anxious to find an
apology for the existing state of things
that there is largo room forimprovcmont.
The recent startling developments will
not be an unmixed evil if they shall have
tlio effect of securing sueh additions lethe
the preventives of roguery as will reduce
its opportunities to the minimum.
IT is rather amusing to read the lec
tures upon the ueceucios of journalism
lo which its readers are MMm-occiisiotmlly
treated by the democratic organ in this
city. No paper in Omaha has more con
sistently violated all "the decencies of
journalism ' tlinn tlm Omaha Iferalil. Us
responsible editor possis es a vocabulary
of epithets and adjectives which he has
never hesitated to retail when occasion
required , and which were lurid enough
to suit the most exacting ot " pot-house
politicians.1 The HEK has never declined
to call a spade a spade. It proposes to dose
so in the future. It may lese in Addi-
sonian elegance in so doing , but it will
express its ideas more clearly to people
who wish to get at tlie meat of the matter

A law passed by the Xe\v i'ork legislature
In 18S5 provides that tlic state shall collect a
tax of ft per cent upon all public bequests.
According to the provisions of this law the
state would receive a tax of 8200,000 out of
tlioTlldou estate , provided tlio public be-
qwsts amount to § 4,000,000 , as estimated.
Out of this sum the county treasurer would
receive a fee of 5 per cent for collecting tliu

Thus § 210,000 must bo collected out of the
