A. Disappointing
The reported dissatisfaction of Senator
McPhoraon with the way In which the Pa
cific railroad commission is conducting
Its Investigation is doubtless snared by
all who have carefully and Intelligently
observed the progress of the Inquiry.
Two weeks of the brief time that the
commission has in which to perform its
work have passed , and it has really ob
tained no information of the character
which the law creating It calls for , or
upon which it could rely for an intelli
gent and trustworthy report to congress
of the earnings , expenditures , policy and
management ot the roads. The olllcials
of thu corporations who have been exam
ined by the commission have all shown
themselves deplorably deficient in
that definite and accurate knowl
edge of facts which men in such
positions are ordinarily supposed to bo
entirely familiar with. Some interesting
disclosures have certainly boon made ,
but the very best of thorn have not
thrown much new light on the general
subject , and have added no trustworthy
data to the practical information which
it is the business of the commission to
obtain.
The obvious fact is that the commission
begun its work at tiio wrong end. It
should have gene directly to the books ,
contracts , and other documentary evi
dences in the possession of the roads
showing the facts which the law requires
them to investigate , and having obtained
the fullest information to bo had in this
way the explanations of the offi
cials would probably have been in
order. The practical way was to
have gone down to the bottom facts , and
not , as Senator McPherson says , to have
merely skimmed the surface , provided
only with such facts as are of common
knowledge , or which are readily acnossi-
bio becaiifio the roads take no trouble to
conceal them. It can readily bo under
stood that the comrui ssion would be at a
disadvantage in encountering the shrewd
and careful olllcials of the roads. These
gentlemen are not friendly to the investi
gation , and can bo depended upon not
to wittingly do anything to promote its
success. 'Ihoy are practiced in the art
of evasion , and some ot them may be
trusted in emergencies for prevarication.
They are pretty sure not to surrender
iny knowledge which it is safer to keep
nlcss it is forced from them. If the
iiembers of the commission were so in-
onerous as to suppose thattheso ofliclals
would lead them to the desired
nformation they ought by this time to
ave learned their mistake. This the
lommission will obtain only by plodding
esoarch in the quarter where such information
mation is matter of record , and this is
ho task to which it should have first ad-
resficd itself.
The statements or explanations of head
fllcials may ho desirable and necessary ,
iut the bottom facts are the essential
hing , both as a basis to enable the com
mission to carry on its work intelligently
nd properly and for the information of
iongrcss and the country. It should
waste no more of its valuable time with
ho generalities , evasions and conceal
ments of the chief officials , but go at
once to the foundation of the business
hey have in hand and work upwards.
Otherwise the investigation is very likely
o provo a failure , as the corporations of
; ourso wish it to bo.
Relating to an Evil.
A Philadelphia paper has undertaken
.o expose and arrest the knavish fortunetellers -
tellers who boldly advertise to perform
miracles and reveal the unknown things
of this life and picture the life to como.
In that city it is said that hundreds ot
those quacks and mountebanks who do
nothing but practice the trade ' of roguery
are unmolested by the law. The many
women engaged in the business of Uup-
ing credulous people and aiding and en
couraging immoral practices of all kinds
by assuring the erring ones that they can
consult the stars or their hands and
proscribe a royal road of harmless hap
piness , are increasing in numbers and
brozonness. The North American has
shown how openly and how flagrantly
the law has been and is violated. It hof
brought these violations to the attention
of the authorities and insists that the
evil-doers bo prosecuted and their dam
nable business be brought to an
early end. The old hags who for years
have practiced their dishonest vocations
have insisted that their business was le
gitimate and their "customers among
the most wealthy and prominent of the
city. " So bold have they grown thai
they have actually become procurers by
gaining the donlider.co of young girU
and claiming that by their magic they
will relieve them of any trouble into
which they may fall. The authorities
are investigating the charges of the
newspapers , and the revelations have
alarmed the parents of Philadelphia.
All cities are cursed with these human
blights. The larger the place the more
numerous the frauds who have "bJon
most successful In revealing the past and
future on business , love and family af
fairs. " The great "tranco claravoyauts,1

general rule. They ruin moro happy
homes and load moro young women as
Stray than any other corrupting Inllu

say that such ilk have nothing to olio :
but misery and unhappiness am
their most confidential advici
to a frequent caller is thoi

duplicity comprise their capital and th
silly dupe patronizing them is alone t

orate ago these dospoilcrs of maritia

' Out of the llacc.
There have boeu several recent Indlca
tlons that the Hill boom for 18S3 isHo b
abandoned , or indeed has already booi
practically given up. It is not certainl ;
known whether or no the visit of Colonc
Lamout to Governor Hill last week hai
any political significance , but it is i
pretty safe guess that politics was no
wholly Ignored during their fraterniza
tion. Jt Is hardly conceivable tnat thes
two could be together oven during a :
ordinary breakfast-time without rcforr
ing to a subject which at all time
chiefly engrosses the thoughts of both
and which must nooossanally urge Itsol
with especial foroo upon their a tie at io ;
when they are together. At all eroats It
U the belief in Washington palltical cir
cles that Colonel Lament wont to New
York on a definite mission to
the governor , and that the re
sult was satisfactory. It is be
lieved that Governor Hill has con *
eluded that it will bo wlsa to antagonize
Mr. Cleveland , and that he will endeavor
to give the president thu support of the
forces he controls , In the hupo of thereby
gaining strength for himself tv few years
later.
It h not Incredible that a shrewd po litl-
clan , as Governor Hill unquestionably is ,
should in view ot prevailing conditions
roach this decision. It was well enough
for hint to accept , and perhaps encour
age , the movement In behalf of his presi
dential aspirations in Now York. Tliorc
was no good reason why ho should deny
his admirers the privilege of booming
him to their hearts' content. They en
joyed it , it gave him national prominence ,
and it afforded an opportunity for test
ing the sense of the party outside of New
York. In the latter respect the effect of the
movement has been pretty thoroughly
ascertained , and it cannot have failed to
convince Mr. Hill , if ho be made of "pen
etrable stuff , ' ' that there Is not the least
chance of his being the democratic can
didate in 1SSS if Mr. Cleveland desires
ronomination. Even were he assured of
an undivided Now York delegation ,
which is by no means tliu case , his chances
would not bo improved , since the very
fact would intensify the hostility to him
of other sections to such an extent as to
utterly destroy the influence of Now
York in the convention. U would be re
garded as a deliberate effort to destroy
the harmony of the party , in the interest
of personal ambition , which democrats
from every other section of thn country
would feel bound to repudiate , and which
would bo repudiated. For Hill the renunciation -
nunciation would bo permanent. His oc
cupation as a democratic leader would be
orovor gone.
Doubtless Governor Hill fully com-
rehcnds all this. Ho Is stupidly
jbtuso if ho doesn't perceive that the
> arty does not want him as its next
residential candidate and that he can
acrificc no chauco of his political future
> y giving the party to understand that
10 doesn't expect to bo its candidate
loxt year , but will bo found in line sup-
) orting the man whom It evidently does
want. Yet whether he shall withdraw
or not from tliu race he Is none the less
) ractically out of it as against Clove-
and.
The Government Sli.nrks.
A settler in the northern part of Min
nesota stole ono stick xof timber
rom the government's land. Ho was
arrested some forty days before his trial
took place. He languished in jail that
engtn of time , and was convicted in the
federal court for theft. The judge sus
pended his sentence. The St. Paul ( Jlobe
says :
lie violated the law and had a right to ex
pect Its penalties. The United States olll-
cials did rl ht In apprehending him and
bringing him to justice.
Granted that the freezing man violated
the law and stole one stick of timber
from the government. Admit thai in
stealing the timber ho was not justified
although he was without wood and his
family was freezing , it seems
that the government officials
while they did only tiicir duty-
could have found better and more honor
able employment than arresting the
"thief" and throwing him in jail for forty
days.
The government has been robbed blind
for the last twenty-live years by gigantic
corporations , scheming congressmen and
senators , public land thieves aud subsidy
scoundrels. The perpetrators of these
glaring crimes occupy high social posi
tions and enjoy political distinction.
They are hardly ever exposed and not
ono in a thousand finds himself where he
rightfully belongs in the penitentiary ,
Yet in tiio face of all of this ii
a poor , half-starved foreign pettier of
the frontier takes one stick of wood
ho is nabbed by a crowd of dcsignins
government sharks and incarcerated in
a jail for forty dayspreparatory to boine
pulled through a long and perplexing
trial in order that the government greyhounds >
hounds may get their foes. Such incon
sistency can result in no great good.
Tun attentions shown the Hawaiiar
queen in this country have developed
some novel incidents , but nothing quite
so unique as the address of Lieutenant
Cowles , of the navy , who welcomed the
dusky queen to the government steamer
Dispatch , when the royal party wont
down to Mount Voriion last week. Ap >
parcntly dotermiiuul to leave all previous
cllbrts at homi : ! > o far in the shade , the
speech of the lieutenant was an example
of extreme obeisance wholly now h
American experience , but he reached the
climax of ridiculous adulation when he
said that "the secretary is always glad te
render any service to a beautiful woman
and is doubly pleased to-day in the facl
that that beautiful woman is your gra >
cious majesty , " etc. The address caused
some indignation and a good deal o
amusement , and although the lioutouan
maintains that ho was in earnest there
are a good many people who believe lie
was guying Mrs. Kalakaua. She had tin
scnso to take it in good part , though i
must have increased her wonder at tlili
remarkable people.
THE return of the warm season and tin
efficacy of electrical treatment haves
far subdued Mr. Randall's gout that tin
troublesome democratic statesman is
about again. While nursing his ailmoni
Mr. Handall has not been indilloront tc
the course of events , and from a quotee
utterance it is evident that ho intends tc

in democratic tide for Cleveland. Hi
Is reported assaying that ho takes n <
stock in the talk about discontent in the
party with the president , and knows o
no ono who will contest the nominatlor
if the president deserves it. It would b <
an act of generous reciprocity on th
president's part to now disabuse the pul
Ho mind of the impression that has ob
tallied that the discontent in the part :
"
regarding Mr. Randall is shared by th"
administration.
THE now departure of the signal bu

Junor. FAULKNKitlVKb was a few days
ago elected to the United States senate
by the legislature of West Virginia , has
been receiving in the newspapers a good
deal of reputation on the record of hi.s
father , the late Charles James Faulk
ner , who was a distinguished man in Vir
ginia and national politics. This cvas be
cause the judge has not yet made
a public record entitling him to a place
in the books , and Illustrates the extent to
which the "esteemed contemporaries" of
the country arc dependent upon this
source of information. The judge , however -
over , appears not to require borrowed
reputation to commend him. Hohr.s made
a strong rccorel as a jurist , and if his
election is valid , which is questioned , he
will doubtless acquit himself creditably
in the senate. His chief fault seems to
bo that ho enjoys to too large a degree
the friendship of the corporations , mine
owners and manufacturers of the state.
IK the sentence of death passed by 'the
court uiatial on the four Mexican officers
engaged in the Nogalcs affair shall bo
carried out , it must certainly bo accepted
as evidence of the determination of the
Mexican government to maintain discip
line and order on the frontier. 13ut
while the Invasion of American territory
nd threatening the life of a sheriff was
.mquestionably a serious outrage , it docs
lot seem to be so grave as to warrant the
3.\treme sentence of the court martial.
At all events the American government
ml people will not regard the shooting
f the implicated soldiers as necessary to
, full reparation.
A GOOD deal of solicitude prevails in
he departments at Washington , duo to
ho civil service rules which are having
heir first trial in the war department.
These rules require not only competitive
examinations for promotion , but that all
clerks shall bo subjected to examinations
or the purpose of ascertaining their
qualifications to retain the positions they
occupy. It is inevitable that the rigid
enforcement of these rules will result in
relegating a numbek of clerks to posi
tions below these tney now hold , while
many others will be forced to retire from
the service. Hence * thert Is a large body
of these public servants' who arc very
anxious. J > \
FUOM the fact that the final statement
of the accounts of the Indian Colonial
exhibition held in London last year shows
that there was a profit of 170,175 , not
withstanding the vast stun of money ex
pended in pathering"artrcles for the won
derful exhibition , it has caused many east
ern papers to urge similar''exhibitions in
their respective cities" There Is no doubt
but that a largd trade wtiuld be drawn tea
a city maintaining an exhibition of arti
cles worth seeing , which otherwise would
remain in other places. An annual
western exhibition , throe months in the
year , during September , October and
November , if made attractive , would
draw largo crowds , oven in Omaha.

Such phenomena would scum impossible

reporter cannot bo doubted. While the
moon bathed the town in silvery light ,
and ice cream signs yawned for custom
Sunday night , the particular son of York
Hena longed for failed to appear and
soothe her aching heart. Solace of some
kind was necessary. A pistol loomed up
before her tear-dimmed eyes and in an
instant a leaden pellet was sent in the
direction of the despairing organ. The
bullet , of course , did not hit the mark ,
but the wound is sufficiently serious to
bring her lover to her bedsiuo. to ntirno
her back to health. There was method
in her madness.

The furnishing of seed grain to the

to that section. Heretofore seed could

The outlook for crops in Dakota Is
most encouraging. Reports from all

the territory. Everywhere there has
been abundant rainfall at precisely the
time when it was most needed.

It Doesn't Hoar the
Matrimonial Mnrkot.
St. Paul I'ionecr Press : Whnn I called
at the stationer's the other day to make a
a purchas < j the clerk handed mo a pleco
of paper marked | 3.25 , and 1 walked
with it to a raised desk in the muldio of
the store and paid my bill to a brunutto
young woman on a high revolving stool ,
with her hair elaboratuly pit fled , a rose
in her tight little gray cloth basque , and
as rare a combination of pouting red lips ,
full round cheeks , and a dainty turn-up
nose , as over gladdened the heart and
eye of man. Across Hroadway is a busy
drug store , the same experience awaited
mo the same except that hero were two
fashionably clad girls , fenced oil' from
the public as if-they were as precious as
the cash they handled. In a beautiful
parlor , such as no man except tiio owner
of a vast palnno could have a huge
vaulted room , bigger than most house
sites , and carpeted , frescoed , and littered
with hardwood furniture I found the
ollico of a great insurance company.
The president sat in ono corner ,
and. twenty feet away , reading
her paper over her typewriter ,
sat a buxom woman of thirty. At H great
square table sat the vico-prcsidcnt , and ,
facing him , almost knco to kueo , was
seated a fair young girl , writing rapidly
us he talked to her. In the centra of the
room , by a desk that was surrounded by
the desks of young men with great ledg
ers , sat another girl with si tumbler of
roses by her dimpled hands and wearing
a dress that was as elaborate as any
street gown on Fifth avenue. Her dainty
touch evoked a telegraphic clatter from
a typewriter that shown like now silver
plate. As 1 wandered through the group
of art cabinets that formed the ofiictts of a
great monthly magazine up town-
found a corps of clerks apd workers of
all sorts equally made up of men ana
women. In short , every where in the busi
ness districts were and are young women.
Counting rooms wear the : iirs of parlors ,
and oflices possess the atmosphere of
drawing rooms.
Scarcely any ono has had moro prac
tical experience with the now order of
women than Miss Mary F. Seymour , the
head of the Union Monographic and
Typewriting association of New York.
She says that whou she began work ,
women were so few in her business that
she was obliged to employ men to assist
her. As this was not in accord with her
idea that women should help each other
and could bo titled for tha work she was
doing , she commended to teach young
ladies to become her assistants , and this
started the now well known school of
which she is the head.
She found that parents were timid at
first about allowing their daughters to
associate in business with men. It was
impossible to arguu upon her deep-rooted
position that the most danger to a girl is
in herself , and that those who arc honest
and dignified and pure will not bo
harmed by cpntact with the world if
reasonable discretion in the choice of
work and positions is shown. Miss Sey
mour thinks that manhood is
improved and fpolished and made
gentle when tiic daily business Hfo is
spent in the presence of ono or moro
modest young women , and she makes the
very strong point that the present femi
nine helpers of men in business are ant
to bo a superior class of girls. As to the
cll'ect of the now life upon the girls them
selves , she lias made some very interest
ing observations. She says that the girls
who are earning their own living are the
most interesting women she knows ; the
most sensible and elevated in their
speech , the least frivolous and empty-
headed , the best informed and the most
practical women of the timo. By living
and working with men young women
grow accustomed to them , lose their sen
timental and romantic notions of the
other sex , and gradually begin to judge
men on their merits , apart from ono
another. The girl of the old time regime
saw only men with parlor manners , and
every one knows that silly and weaK fel
lows often outshine good and shrewd
ones in .society , lint in business these
women see men as they are , in their nat
ural every day aspects , and they rate
them according to the best of their power
to judge character. It is Miss Seymour's
experience that the young ladies in busi
ness quarry in the same proportion as
girls in the homos in the city , and she
thinks they are apt to marry bettor.
lint what is the uilbct on the man Is the
natural thought. In what way is woman
affected ? What does the husband get on
his side ? In what respect are wives im
proved ? As to this , Miss Seymour says
that the advantage to the husband is very
great. It is very true thatgirlsin business
liava not learned to Lake or sew , though
the chance is she knew moro or less about
both before going to business , but she
has bccorno systematic , business like and
orderly. Her mental training has bettor
fitted her for managing a house well than
if she could cook and bake , and yet have
no idea of system. Hotter yist , slid has
had her attention turned to affairs , has
heard public matters discussed and grown
intrro.stnd in them ; knows what to road
and learns to like to improve her mind ,
and to take part in the .serious mascu
line conversation around her.
Another very interesting talk on the
subject was had with Mr. Jcromo It.
Wheeler , one of the firm of R. II. Macy
& ( Jo. , the largest employers of women
in this city. Ho has given the consequences
quences of the feminine revolution much
thought and by the way , tlicso large
shopping stores like his , Imvo felt the
revolution very deeply. In the largest
of these stores in Brooklyn ami Now
York it had alwaya been the rule for the
women to wait on tiio counter , and the
men to do the more responsible work of
managing an'd buying. In Macy's oven
the cashier is a woman ; tha supunnum-
dent in charge of all the employes , 12,000
to ! IOOU in all , is a woman. Some reader
may toss his head and say that is because
women can bo got cheaper than men. 1
suspect that is so , but alter all that is a
trillo in viewing the subject a trillo like
a speck of duit in the lenso of an opera
ghiis through which wo view a drama.
Tint women's wages are not so bad.
Typewriters and stenographers earn
from iflO to | 3.1 a wcokj the wajrcs of the
girls and women in the shopping stores
range from iffl to $1 ? . The bluest wo
man' * tailor in this city and London nays
the young woman who designs drapery
and braiding for his lady customer * $50
a week.
Hut to return to Mr. Wheeler : Ho says
that the women who work for him marry
in the same proportion as the women of
tliu same classes who remain at homo ,
lint his tfirK marry butter. That is his
oxpericneo and their belief. He says that
the training and dUviplino the women
get in a great sioro better lit them for the
management of a home than homo train
ing ; it makes them oolf-roliant , practi
cal , broad-minded , Hteady , sober. It rids
them of the adult infantility of the putted
daughter ut homo , of the frivolity unit
holple.ssne&s and of that abnormal senti
mentality that loaves so many girls a
prey to the vicious : llo .says ho feels
very certain that the moral touo ot
women U raised and trcugthcned bj
business experience , In eight years ,
among the many thousands oflils fomaln
employes , he has not known of a single
case of the ruin of a work girl by n man
In the employ of the concern. Ono
young woman went astray , and her
parents suspected that some associate in
the store must have been her botr.ivrr.
Mr. Wheeler investigated the caso. The
girl had disappeared. All the men la
the store were detailed.to sc.irch the city ,
which was mapped out for the wonc.
The girl was found and brought to Mr.
Wheeler , to whom she confessed that
her ruin was duo to a distant relative of
her mother. In some establishments the
serious mistake is made of curtaining or
partitioning the women apart from the
men , This surrounds the women with
privacy and mystery , and is not good for
them or the men. Tha main benefits
ascribed to this juxtaposition of the SCXCH
are lost in this way. Hut all this will
wear away and vanish , just as the largo
modicum of business men would not
have a woman in their ofliccs lire years
ago appears to have gene from the ken
of advancing femininity , root , stock and
branch.

The board of education held a special

Superintendent James was given au
thority to engage twelve new teachers

tion.A
A motion made that the board Issue n
proclamation .submitting the question of
voting bonds in the sum of $200,000 at the
Juno election , Mr. Davis raised the
question ns to the authority ot the board
to issue such a proclamation , and it was
referred to the judiciary committee with
authority to pay for legal counsel.
The committee on claims reported
favorably on the claims for work oil the
Georgia avenue school building.
Mr. Davis moved to amend the report
by deducting $10 per day from the bill
for each day since November 1,1880 ,
when the building.according to contract ,
should have been completed !
Mr. Clark said the board failed to have
the ground ready tor the contractor to
begin the work at the time originally
agreed on.
Mr. Coburn thought this fact might
prevent the imuosition of the penalty.
The report as amended was dually
adopted , and the board adjourned.
