THE condition of the coal trade of the
country i * .shown by the current issue of

There is an active business in anthracite
at all points , nnd the sales arc generally

siderably below those of two years ago.
The improved condition of the trade is

industries , and it is said that the outlook
is for nn excellent season during tho.year
1887. The bituminous coal interest i.s

Kviiit slum senators wore allowed to

is justice In tlm claim of senators that the
secretaries arc necessary and helpful to
thorn In the di'-ehargo ol their duties as
Jogislators.nor . that the secretaries should
bo paid by the government , just as other
clorkti who assist in the business of con
gress arc compensated. Hut it is hold
that the mcmliMrsof the house ought also
to have such assistant. Until recently
no biio has hud the courage to make n
serious move to bring it about , slnco
such n provifion would make a very
largo addition to the expenditures of
congress. Mr Oatcs , of Alabama , some
ten days ago introduced a bill putting
tlio matter into practical hlmpe , anil as
ho is vorv much in earnest it will un
doubtedly bo heard of again , with what
result is uncurtain. This bill proposes
to autliorhn each member of congress
who is not a chairman of a conumtteo to
appoint n clerk at the beginning of each is
session , whose name shall bo placed on
the pay roll of the house in which ho is
appointed , and who shall receive $100 a
month for the time ho actually serves.
I'ypn at the low salary named by the
bill the arrangement would cost the gov
urniuimt about 19,000 a mouth.

A < 1a5 which the Christian world has
observed , with Incicasinjr reverence nml
Kladncs ; , for more than fifteen ccnturic' ,
doe ? not now need to have its character
nnd spirit explained , noc to be com
mended to the devout Interest and joyous
regard of nil Christian people , It docs
not matter that the cxncl date of Christ's
birth has never been nnd cannot now bo
determined , nor that in the dawn of the
Christian or.a another dale in another
month wns observed in commemoration
of that event. To the more than four
hundred millions of living Christians it
is sufllclont that the nnlhority of ngcs
Ims for flll time established the 25th day
ol December ns the anniversary of the
Saviour's birth nnd made It the most
sacred of nil holidays , as it is also the
most joyous nnd the most universally
The recurrence of Christmas is an in
vitation to sentiment , Of nil the day in
the 3'cnr 11 is greatest in its Inlluonco
upon the sympathies , nnd in Its power to
call into activity the kindly and humani
tarian instincts of our nature. Not ag
gressively , but with an irresistible ) force ,
it breaches the waljs of selfishness , pen-
uriou ncss , and every form of mean ami
narrowing disposition , letting in upon
the belter part of man the warm and
radiant Minlight of generosity , gentle-
lifts and good will. The heart is hard-
frozen indeed that cannot bo thawed by
this melting nml tempering influence.
That nature is a most unenvinblo one that
finds no pleasure in the exuberant joy
of childhood or the earliest flratitudo of
age for the remembrance of affection or
friendship , and can sen no recompense in
the blessings ot the poor for the gifts of
charity. Wisely understood , the prompt
ings and tendencies of this season are all
bunellecnt , and no one can err in yield
ing to them as means and opportunity
In no othcv country , certainly , is the
Christmas holiday t > o generally and gen
erously observed as in this favored land ,
nnd tlio present season seems to bo ex
ceptional here In the interest and matt-
nificcnce which characterize it. From all
the centers of trade there have been re
ports during the past few days of nn ex
traordinary demand for all lines of goods
to which the attention of purchasers is
specially directed at this season. The
postolh'oes and express offices of all the
larger cities have never before handled
so largo an amount of matter at the holi
day time as they have been called upon
to do for the past week. In our own city
dealers in all departments of seasonable
goods have had n most satisfactory busi
ness , and in most cases the amount of
dead stock to be carried over will bo
comparatively small. All this is gratifv-
ing evidence of the general prosperity ,
which there i.s favorable protniso will bo
still more marked and extended a year
In full sympathy with the .spirit of the
day , wo extend to our rc.'idcrs the soa-
son's greeting and heartily wish them
all "A Merry Christmas. "

The present management of the Union
Pacific road have planned a number of
fenders to their main line , and it must be
evident to all that they must build largely
to bo able to hold their own in the terri
tory west of the Missouri. To build most
affectively to this end would it not bo well
for Messrs. Adams and Cullawny to con
sider the scheme that has been urged for
the Texas road a.s a south west extension
of the Union 1'acilic system ?
An air line to the northeast corner of
the Panhandle of Texas from two or
three favorable points ou the line of their
load will uhow the advantages they possess -

Should the Union Pacific build from
Valparaiso to Texas the distance would
bo I50 ! milca , from Central City 300 miles ;
from Grand Island i)15 ) miles ; from Kear
ney Junction 290 miles. .
To start tlio line from Valparaiso would
gave the cost of bridging the Platte , ami
would probably secure a richer agricul
tural bolt in Nebraska and Kansas , and
would give Omaha the shortest line to n
Texas. From Kearney Junction would
require less mileage to build , but would
be the longest line from Omaha. Re-
member , gentlemen of the Union Pacific , °
that the cattle of Texas must bo packed
in a cold climate , that all ofibrls heretofore - .

Why not Omaha ? Our clim.Uo is as good
for the purpose , or bettor , than tlio cli p
mate of Chicago , while wo are ncanl.v ,

Other Lmtuls Than Ours. ca
The event ( if the week in foreign poli
tics is the resignation of Lord Randolph
Churchill from the British ministry. This
stop of tlio dashing leader of the lory
progressists seems to have been a genuine or
surprise to all parties. Ostensibly taken
on account of dlMigroGiiicnt with his
cabinet colleagues regarding war and ia
naval expenditures , there seems no douot
that the prompting motlvo lay deeper
than any dispute regarding the require
ments of the budget. The Unit's oable
dispatches of Friday indicate that
Churchill believed himself cramped by
the mossback member * ) of Ilia lory parly
which surrounded him and felt that of
his futijro was imperilled by the of
policy of n ministry with which
lie could not agree but for which as a
minister of the crown ho was held to a to
personal responsibility. There is no
doubt that Churchill is by iuMincl a dem
ocrat , Ho Is keen enough to note that
the entire tendency of Drltish politics Is
towards democracy nnd that In the
onward movement of liberalism , conservatism
vatism must either prove itself elastic
enough to yield to the pressure or break icy
In the attempt at resistance. An oppor
tunist from policy Lord Randolph has
noted the rising storm of discontent with
Lord Salisbury's government and prefers
to stand from under while ho may obtain the
some credit from resigning rather than
to await the inevitable removal by vote the
of parliament , The general Impression
that Curohlll's resignation is the death
blow of the ministry. Attempts will lias
doubtless be madn to till the breach , but
the fact remains that the only capsule to
lenders of thu tones in the lower honso
will no longer occupy a scat on the gov the
ernment benches to sot the notu of con
servative sentiment and audaciously
answer liberal assaults bystill more
daring attacks on the opposition.
Tht * recent fall of the Freycmel minis
try brings out more strongly perhaps
than over before the absurdity of keeping
up the Enelish parliamentary system in
republican Trance. In the first place M.
de Freyclnct was defeated by a majority
of only 13 in a vote of Oil. Hut the im
portant fact to bo noted is that of the 2C2
opposition deputies 170 belonged to tlio
right , leaving only 89 republicans , Of
the 210 deputies w'lo supported AI , do
rrcychict , every one was a republican.
Now it is a well-known principle of the
right , or monarchists , to cast their solid
vote against a ministry whenever there is
any chance of overturning it , wholly re-
gnnllc&s of the merits of the question
under discussion. The right wishes not
simply a chniigo of ministry , but
a change in the form of irovcrn-
incut , In n word , n revolution. Tims
the very essence of the English parlia
mentary system is vitiated. According
to English custom , M. Grevy should have
invited ono of the loaders of the rigltt to
constitute a new ministry. But ho wns
very careful not to do , o. The republican
party clings to a regime that is quite impracticable -
practicable in Franco , observing it in
certain particulars and departing from
it in others. The Third republic Is weak
ened nt homo and laughed at abroad be
cause it obstinately persists in trying to
neclimalo a foreign governmental
growth that cannot take root in the soil
to which it lias been transplanted , Wo
believe that Franco will be forced sooner
or later to adopt at least the cabinet fea
ture of our American federal institu
tion' ) , and when that dnv comes , the
reactionary parties will surely lese heart
and the sickly republic will bo p'ro-
nonnccd out of danger.
The demand of the Herman govern
ment ! for an increase of the army , witli
an increase of taxation to defray tlio
additional i expenditure , is vainly resisted
in the relchstag. In order to stimulate
the patriotic zeal of the Gorman people
they are assured by the German news
papers that an offensive and defensive
alliance is in process of formation be
tween France and Russia ; that llio names
ot the negotiators are known in llio war
office , but that it is not advisable to give
them to the public. To this alliance the
organs of Prince Bismarck attribute the
overthrow of Minister Do Frcycinet , who
was of altogether too peaceable a temper
ament : lo favorably respond to advances
from Russia that might lead the French
republic ] into a war with Germany. Thus
excited by apprehensions of danger
from formidable enemies on their
right and left , it is not strange
that ; ( ho Gorman pcoulo so cheer
fully consent to an increase of mili
tary strength and to additional burdens
of taxation. Nor will it bo strange , after
tin military preparations shall have boon
niado if the
, present condition of sus
pense shall bo suddenly changed to act
ual war. Semi-ofilcial Berlin newspapers
arc * discussing favorably a proposal to
cover llio expense of increasing the army
by imposing a tax upon incomes of G,000
marks : and upward. The North German
Gazette expresses the hope that the mem
be of the rcichslag , after learning pub
lie sentiment during the recess , will bo

. Stanley's summons to Europe , it is now
believed in New York , was not from the
king . of Belgium , but from private parties
in . Great Britain who arc getting up an
expedition for the relief of Emm Bo3' .
Emm Boy is a Gorman naturalist , ono of
Gordon's bravest lieutenants , holding the
support of Gondokoro ( or rather Wady
Ly ) 000 miles above Khartoum on the
borders of Uganda , His story so far is
the story of Gordon himself. Ilo has
appealed for relief for two years past ,
and very urgently for a year ; the last
letter received from him was early in
July , and expressed his determination
not to abandon his post , although in the
midst of thousands of hostile .sav
ages. . Since then the news has
conic of the murder of missionaries
in Uganda , and tlio determination of the
king of that country to block the threat
ening advance of civilization. It is llio
duty of tlio British to relieve Emin Bey ,
as . it was to relieve Gordon , but after
their ( failure to send help to the garrison
in Khartoum there is no hope of a better
fate for that of Wady Ly. This private
expedition was talked of and its leader
ship proposed to Stanley before ho loft
England , and ho said while hero thnt ho
had not entertained the proposition because -
cause there was no asitiranco of success
the arrangements. lie submitted ,
however , a plan of operations , and it Is
now asserted that the MclCinnon who tot-
egrapheel to him was not the agent of the
king , of the Belgians , but a Glasgow mcr-
chant , who is ready to spend ifOO.OOO In
carrying out the plan.

an important event , for it separates the
moderate from the radical elements of

Besides the very commendable result of
