JULY FIRST is Temperance day at the Chautauqua assembly at Crete. The president of the Nebraska W. C. T. U , pas asked that all who can attend should bo present. George W. Bain will deliver the annual address on that day. It is to bo regretted that Tomperanoo day and the clam bake did not come together. THK railways of the northwest show a substantial increase in earnings during the past three months compared with the eamu period in ' 80. This is all becansi of the workings of the later-state law , which , as predicted by eminent railway managers , was bound to bring disaster and ruin upon theoutire railroad system TriK yellow fever at Key West is more Virulent than at any time this year , and the citizens of thu Gulf states are becom ing alarmed. The sanlnitttry measures In Now Orleans , Memphis , Vickburg nnd other cities scourged by this fata ! disease In ' 70 , are much better than be fore , and there Is little cause for soriou- alarm. SINCK the last train robbery in Toxai timid eastern papers are advising railroac companies to arm and drill their ruon , st that in case of emergency they couli protect uassongors from the highway men.

A LINCOLN paper claims that Un col pays half as much state tax as Omahr but she doesn't howl about It.

The I'Aclflc Hallway InvoittRatlon. The commission created by an act of congress with a view of obtaining full information about the llnanclal condition of the bond subsidized Pacific railroads , nnd tholr methods of doing business , Is now in session in this city. When this commission was appointed grave doubts wcro entertained as to Its ability to add anything of vital moment to the volume of Information that had already been collected from thiio to time by con gressional committees , the national rail road bureau and the federal courts. While the Crcdit-Mobiler investiga tion nnd later Inquiries into the mysteries of I'acldo railroad manage ment wore exhaustive in certain direc tions , no commission , committee or court , up to this time , has shown a dis position to carry Its searching inquiry Into Union Pacillc headquarters. Sena tor Cullom's inter-state committee , which made a pretense of invcstlgat ing into railway discriminations in this city lost summer'was content to allow Trattlo Manager Kimball , the most unscrupu lous compiler of fictitious railroad sta tistics , answer its Inquiries with a care fully prepared and ingeniously worded type-written statement which was em bodied In its report as Mr. Kimbali's testimony , This so-called testimony which was flatly contradicted by the comnany way bills and Indisputable proof obtainable through patrons who had cither been favored or discriminated against , was accepted by Mr. Cullom as gospel truth. The Pacific railway commission ap pears to be made up of difTorcnt material. The manner m which its members are conducting their inquiry affords gratify ing proof that for once there is to bo no sham investigation. The tactics by which the managers of the Union Pacific have been able to smother nnd cover the tracks of the rogues who have systematically plundered the stock-holders , robbed and impoverished patrons nnd localities , onrichoil th'oir si lent partners and domlnatod over the people by high-handed favoritism and corrupt political machinations , have utterly failed with this commission. The two days' session in Omaha shows that it means business and its members can not bo trilled with. The disclosures which have already boon made , afford ( ho most conclusive proof that the managers have utterly ig nored the state law , which for bids rebates and discriminations for or against shippers. It shows that the road has boon operated for the benefit of inside rings and syndicates in which the ofliccrs and directors have held largo blocks of stock. And yet these facts have only been drawn out by compulsion , while the most stupendous frauds upon the company and government are still to bo revealed. Oil Replacing Coal. The recent sncccssf nl experiment of the Pennsylvania railroad in running a train from Altoona to Pittsburg with petroleum as funl instead of coal , has attracted at tention as probably foreshadowing a most important departure in the matter of supplying power to locomotives in this country. The oil was carried in the tender , and only about twelve barrels were used in traveling the 110 miles. There was not the slightest diillculty ex perienced from the substitution of oil for coal. It it very likely that the success of this experiment will lead to a gradually extended use of oil for this purpose , the wonder being that it has not before boon thus employed , at least iu the state of which petroleum is so large a product. It scorns that this successful experiment cannot be regarded as a discovery , an example having boon not in Russia , on the railroads m the re gion between the Black and Caspian seas , as long ajo as 1881. Later oil re siduum was used in locomotives on the Transcaucaslan and Transcaspian rail ways , as well as in the furuacuiof steamboats - boats on the Caspian sea and on the Volga river. On the railways of Sweden , on the roads between Alexandria and Cairo , Moscow and Teheran , Mow and liatoum , oil has been almost wholly used in place of coal for & year or two past. It has been successfully employed with great economical advantages on the ferry steamers of the Central Pacific railroad at San Francisco , and the record every where Is that it effects a great saving as compared with coal. In view of the suc cess that has attended its use as a fuel for motor engines , its economy , and other advantages , it Is a little singular that its application to this pnrposo had not become moro general in this country , und that in this particular we should bo eo far behind Europe. Now , however that the Pennsylvania road has taken the Initiative , with entirely satisfactory re suits , it may bo expected that it will speedily find numerous imitators. With natural gas supplanting coal as i factory fuel , and petroleum replacing 1 in running locomotives and steamships , the coal industry would socin to be threatened with sorlout deterioration. But every stop in the progress of discov cry and achievement calls for something moro to moot the endless necessities oi man , the active competitions of the age , nnd the economies toward which all thi efforts of soiouca nro directed. I must not bo assumed , therefore , that the demand for coal wil cease bccattso it may ultimately bo ni longer required for purposes it now sup plies. It has been demonstrated that tin manufacture of cheap fuel gaa from coa is feasible , and it la only a question o time when all over the country , outside of natural gas territory , this cheap gas will bo produced for manufacturing and domestic purposes , for both fuel am light. The economy of its use will mak < it available to hundreds of communltio ! to which gas for any purpose is now tin known , and thus a new necessity wll have boon created that wilt raakn at added demand upon the moans necessary to supply it. In the discovery of nev forces and aids to material progress uom of the bounties of nature will be aban doncd or rendered loss valuable , bu rather utilized to bettor and wider ad vantage. Bojr | and Tobacco , The Illinois legislature passed a law making it illegal to soil to children uudei tii.xleon years of ago , cigars , cigarettes 01 tobacco In any of 1U forms. Commenl upon this law In found in many papers , nil unanimous in its endowment. The siuno law , only moro severe la its re strictions and penalties , oxUts iu No hrtMfcv Practically it is a dead latter Not one in Ave hundred dealers regard it. Th * smallest boy In moil any town , f ho possesses a sufficient amount of the circulating medium , can purchase cigars , cigarettes or tobacco. The child who cannot see over the counter Is accommo- latcil by attractive signs In the windows , of villainous pictures obscene and vul gar. The child's money U regarded as .jood ns any , and conscience or legal or noral right cuts no figure. It may bo that the Illinois law will bo enforced , nnd offenders fined ns prescribed , yet t is a safe prediction that In any to bacco store in Chicago to-day , and a Tear from to-llay , will bo found es pecially poisoned and "doctored" and prepared packages of the vllo and Inju rious cigarette for "children's use. " And. there will bo boys and girls to mnoko thorn nnd men ready and eager to sell. sell.Tho The habit of smoking Is injurious to children , no matter how fine tlio tobacco out of which they are manufactured. Hut tlio deadly drugs and cigar slump picked by scavengers from the filth and dirt of-tho streets and manufactured into the clpurcttc result seriously to young smokers. The miserable mixture dwarfs the mind , impedes growth and development of the body , weakens the lungs and in other ways results badly to the youth of the country using it. The abominable practice is growing , and growing rapidly. The law can hardly meet the requirements. Every parent imagines "his boy is best , " and would deny and insist that ho did not smoke , though a hundred hoighbors would boar witness that ho did. Unfortunately there is no one else to complain , and the sale and consumption of the filthy und deadly articles goes on and on. Kvon if the boy could not secure themt there are always man low enough and little enough to sco that ho is supplied , if he lias the money. nn Example. Just now , when England's queen Is re ceiving tlio compliments and gifts of the nations , , and Urittania's glory is being proclaimed in prose and song , it may bo well to remember that there is a dark side to the picture , and that behind the splendors of royally and the glitter of an arrogant aristocracy stalks a vast army of the most wretched people to bo found in any enlightened and prosperous nation of the earth. This reflection Is sug gested by the remarks of Canon Wilbor- foroo at Checkering hall , Now York , a few days ago. in which he said the pros perity of England is at the cost of the degradation of the masses. The contra idea of the canon's address was that the English people , moro than those of any other country , are the slaves of drink , and that the aristocracy men in parlia ment and in the government wore thriv ing upon this slavery. The evidence of statistics shows that the charge against the English people is warranted , and the distinguished preacher is sutlicieut authority for the rost. iiut it is not this solely that accounts for the extent of popular degradation in England. The system upon which its ruling class Is founded and perpetuated is in no small measure responsible , while the bold immoralities of that class are a demoralizing example to the masses. As this system bocomcs weaker and it has grown so rapidly within a few years , and the government gets nearer to the governed , there is a steady elevation of the people in character and aspira tions. All the pomp and circuin stances of this jubilee week , with its royal pageants and entertain ments , is really a stimulus to that popu lar displeasure and discontent which are the incentives to dissipation. The help less thousands who swarm London might very easily see in it a mockery of their misery nnd a tax on their poverty. The masses of thn English people , while it may bo true that they enjoy a suf ficient degree of personal liberty , can find no encouragement in their govern mental system , managed as it is in largo part by an instructed aristocracy that makes concessions only as it cannot help making them. But the situation is not hopeless. There has been progress , and there will be more. The people will yet have undivided rule in England , and then there will bo better chance for the moral regeneration of the masses which reformers like Wilborforco arc seeking. IMpo Ijinc. Chicago has for uorao time ooon strug gling hard to keep np appearances of progress. Wo noted some time ago the acknowledgment of one of its most trust worthy newspaper * that "for rent" signs were to be seen on every hana , with the further confession that capital seeking investment in real estate was giving the lake city the go-by and being placed fur ther west. We haye also noted that in order to give Chicago a chance to make a showing in the next census of a largo increase of population the legislature had passed an not under which the ab sorption of outlying towns will bo rend ered comparatively easy. Efforts are now making to induce these towns to come in , There is still another ray of hope for Chicago. She may got a supply of natural gas. It will not bo a very largo supply , but as an addition to the other agencies for helping to restore animation to the over grown city it is not to bo despised. The gas well developed some tiuio ngo atFairmount , Ind. , and which is ono of the largest of the great wells in the country , will bo the source of supply , the capital for the enterprise being fur nished by a company ot Buffalo capital ists. It will not bo a very great acquisi tion , this gas from a single well pined many miles , nor will it bo a very relia ble one , but Chicago has reached the point when anything , however small , that may contribute to a boom , is wel come. Wo congratulate that city on the promise. Oraahu is moving right along without the need of any such auxiliary aids to her progroas , with a great destiny assured , and can well afford to encourage the hopes and oipirntions of its less favored Bister city. Narrow Gungod. The managers of the Omaha fair are altogether too narrow guagcd m their ideas of what should and can bo done to make the proposed exposition something inoro than a mere district exhibit with a horse racing appendage. Omaha is fa vorably located for nn inter-state expo sition , The state fair at Lincoln will hereafter , as heretofore , fill the demand fur a grand display of pumpkins , cabbages , wind milla , fat pig * , crazy quilts and poultry. An inter-state exposition , embracing the agricultural , mineral und industrial products of Nebraska , Wyoming , south- era DakoU , northern Missouri , western lown and northern Kansas , would nflbrd a broad.field ' ( or'enterprise ' and attract thousands of people , not only from the region whoso pro ducts would bo on exhibition , but from every section of the country. If it is not too late In the season , the managers of the Omaha fair should enlarge - largo their programme and Improvise an exposition worthy of the name. Drawing n few thousand sporting people to Omaha to witness the horse races may till their ideal of an exposition , but it docs not meet the wants of the enterprising citi zens who have contributed to the Omaha fair nnd exposition funds. the clilnr. Viewed from a business standpoint the appointment of a sergeant-nt-arms by the council is unobjectionable. There is no necessity for detailing the chief of police nnd an olllccr from their regular duties to wait upon tlio council. Every member of the small force nt the dis posal of Iho chief of police should be on his proper beat nnd the chief himself should bo In condition at all times to respond to calls or act promptly in emer gencies which are liable to arise any night. We take it , however , that the new de parture was not designed as tin economic move , but intended us a snub to the chief of police. This is play and will servo no good purpose. The chief is accotiu table only to the police commission. He has no duty to perform in the council cham ber unless called on to make nn arrest , nnd in that case ho can order any police olllccr to net. If the council really bo- licves that Seavoy is not chief of police , but merely personating that officer with out legal authority , they should have taken another method of testing his title than by a childish attempt to snub him. THK somewhat fulsome , yet in the whole , cleverly constructed letter of Pres ident Cleveland to Queen Victoria , is very likely not to bo entirely pleasing tea a considerable clement upon which the democratic party In New York very largely depend. There will undoubtedly bo objection to the wiah that the quoou'rf reign may be prolonged , so far as the president assumes te reflect the general voice of his countrymen , nnd there will be some reasons for such objection. Americans who feel any concern in the matter , and perhaps very few do , would not give their voice in support of the reign of any monarch , even ns a matter of courtcsv. An American who honors the institutions of his own country can not consistently wish the continuance of a political system that has nothing in common with those Institutions. It was proper enough to congratulate the queen nnd to wish her more years of life and all the happiness she can derive from them , but it was overslvalntng courtesy for the aresident of the American republic to wish a prolongationof her reign as the general voice of tUis ; republican nation. THE extent to which such speculation as the Chicago wheat deal effects the en tire business system , of the country maybe bo understood from the favorable condi tions which have succeeded the collapse of that corner. The'deal , in conjunction with the cotton speculation , had so checked the exports of those commodi ties that the balance of trade in favor of this country was greatly reduced , and but for the easy money market in London And the demand for American securities we should in a little while have been compelled to ship gold. Immediately after the collapse of the deal the situation in this respect begun to improve , and now there is n steady and generous ex port movement of grain , with the pros pect that gold will come to us , which is much the more desirable course to have it take when it is paid for our products. If these vast gambling operations affected nobody but the bulls and boars who en gage in them the people might have little concern about them , caring nothing as to which party win or fortune came , but their deranging and camaging effects are far-maching and often very danger ous. ous.A A NEW law of New York , signed bv Governor Hill on Monday , makes it un lawful for any steam railroad to here after heat its passenger cars , on other than mixed trains , by any stove or fur nace kept inside the cars or suspended therefrom , except it may bo lawful in case of accident or other emergency temporarily to use any such stove or fur nace with necessary fuol. Stoves , except as above noted , can bo used only in cars standing still or in dining room cars for cooking purposes , the latter to bo ap proved by the railroad commissioners. The law does not apply to roads less than fifty .miles in length. This is the begin ning of legislation of this character which will ultimately bccomo general. WITH a line How of natural gas in Iowa , eighty miles from Omaha , it would seem certain that it can bo found in Nebraska. The town which makes the experiment will lose nothing. In Ohio the cost of sinking a well from 1600 to 1900 font , is from iJ3,300 to $3r > 00. It would bo well to remember , also , that at Findly , Ohio , whore the largest nnd best wells have been discovered , within twenty miles no gas was found , while 20 miles further on , or 40 miles from Kindly , largo supplies were found and now fur nish families with fncl and light at a very small sum. Frm the reports of all geologists natural ga.s underlies portions of Nebraska why notrsearch for it ? Bon INOEUSOLL always has a novel way of looking at things , Ho has recently said this country WAS capable of sustain ing 000,000,000 people. * He declares for eign immigrants ofi8S7 have the same privilege to come to jtljis country as the immigrants of 1020 , , , ] Ho further says many of them are bettor than some of the crowd who landed > od Plymouth Kock. This last statement will bo meat for the assembly of Purltanlo 'Sons of America now in session at Chicago. THE Iron clad prohibition law posses es but little terror for the average saloon keeper and druggist dowu iu Kansas. The Leavenworth Times , the foremost champion of prohibition and woman niflrage , gravely , yet honestly , exclaims : ' Boor , beer , whisky , whisky , every where ! Everywhere ! Rum shops above ground , underground.in ; fact they are scattered everywhere throughout ths city of Leavenworth. " \VIHLK the BKK has sustained the police lid fire commission In the full and un restricted exorcise ot the powers which the law.confers upon It , wo do not ap prove the conduct of It's official business within closed doors.

Members of the commission may confer with each other confidentially when tlio commission is not in session , but the business of the commission should bo transacted with open doors.

He entered the field where the animal was , when , without warning , the beast made a rush for him and drove ono horn through his body , disemboweling him and causing in stant death. The DCS Moincs Leader says the out put of coal in Polk oounty is decreasing yearly , mainly because there is no market for it. The Irrgcst quantity over taken from the mines in the county during ono year was 019.921 tons , in 1884. Since 1884 the amount has been growing smaller until during 1838 there were but 337,981 tons , or only & little moro than one-half as much taken out as in 1884. DHlCOtfl.

For six weeks after the fall on the pavement that resulted iu fracturing the limb he was confined to his bod. That was moro than three months ago.

E NEW WYOMKfC Oil i < " < Organization of a Ooicpauj to Operate Promising Petroleum Wells. OMAHANS THE FIRST EXPLORERS Some Splendid Specimens oft ho Oriulo I-'rotn I'olson Splclor llnsln Tlio Decline In I'astorn Production. A few bottles of crude or refined pe troleum more or less do not seem of much importance ; yet those received yester day , and now to bti seen at the olllccs of Barker & Burr and Wendell Benson , nt 1220 and 12'JJ Farnam street , have n greater significance than appears nt first. They are In fact thu product of the new Wyoming oil field , and the re sult of an alaysis und distillation of Wyoming crude petroleum. It may not bo generally known , but it is neverthe less true , that the oil refiners and dealers ot the cast , have for some time been ser iously alarmed concerning the future s upply of the crude product. Pennsyl vania and New York instead of pourinu out from 100,000 to 100,000 barrola per day , are taxing their utmost resources to secure 115,000 barrels per day , Tlio consumption ot the article hag grown , however , to over 1)0,000 ) barrels per day ; so that the oauso of the alarm is easily understood. In view of these facts and tlio additional fact thai thu stock on hand is being gradually absorbed by the excess of consumption over pro- duotion , the discovery of a new field is ol tlio greatest importance. That great quantities of oil have long been known to exist in Wyoming is true ; yet the oil to which this refers is n heavy lubricating oil , nnd not the oil from which kerosene or "coal oil , " us it is im properly called , is derived. The petro leum of New lork and Pennsylvania Is very different and very much more valua ble than a simple lubricating oil , because the market for the lattei is limited , while the demand for the former is now fur beyond the supply , ex cept ns stocks intervene , nnd the values are regulated accordingly. The now discovery lies in the fact that the petro leum from the Poison Spider oil basin in Carbon county , Wyo. , is u light oil , thai is , an oil of from 40 ° to 47 ° gravltj Buumi and contains a large per cent of kerosene , us is shown by the samples referred - forred to. The crude was collected at the Oil mountain spring by a gentleman from the Pennsylvania oil field and by him sent east for analysis , with the gruti- fying result following. There nro five samples , the first being a quality of gas oline as clear as water , and of n qual ity equally good with any of the same specific giuvity. The sample of kerosene is 175 degrees fire test , and is clear water white and odorless. The next sample is of a ! )00 ) degree fire test. Tina unumiaUy high test oil is of course more for show than use , it being too expensive to be used except on railway coaches mid steamships to insure safety in case of collision or falling lamps. It Is claimed that u lump fillea with this and burning would uot explode or the oil igimte. al though broken to pieces. It shows , how ever , the possibilities of Wyoming petro leum. A.sido from these products , there Is a sample ot tine lubricant called spindle oil and n quality of vaseline , both of which arc among the big products of the rofiuiug process. There are in all , eix or seven of these products which it is alleged pay all the cost of refining. It would bcum that the new oil field will be first explored by Omaha capitalists , who , as usual , load the others in enterprise and push. A company has been organized , called the Oil Mountain Mining com pany , with $10,000,000 capital , and they will have a well under way inside of thirty days. As may b guessed from the size of the capital stock , U is tlio inten tion of the company to not only produce but to refine their production. The oil is there , it is of good quality , and it is not a violent supposition that Wyoming kero sene will beforsala iu this market within six month. Professor Aughoy , territorial geologist of Wyoming , in his report ot 1880. makes the following remarks which are of in terest in this connection : "The gravity ot this oil is' between thirty-ouo and thirty-two degrees Baumi. " [ This was after exposure to the air for an unknown period whioh reduce * the grav ity from 85 to 50 per cent. Report.J It is of an amber or light green color. A large amount of illuminating oil can bo obtained from it bv distillation. It contains no parafinu and its flash and fire tests arc both high but have 1101 been definitely determined. Though possessing much kerosene it is also remarkably well adapted for making lubricating oils. * * It was observed that in sinking the well already described , ( a shaft near Oil mountain ) the amount of oil increased with every foot of descent. At the smuo rate of increase it was calculated that at 100 feet a fifty barrel well would bo produced. Tlio oil hero Is most certainly in the trmssic rocks. To roach the oil- bearing rocus therefore , a depth approx imating 1,600 foot would nave to bo reached. Long before that depth would bo Attained , the oil supply would probably bo ample. At this place there are no lofty ridges to coudonse'wator and net an a source of iu > supply to force the oil through strntafl. with the energy which obtains elsewhere. Hence little of the underground treasures have gout ) to waste. Tlio stores accumu lated through ages are yet comparatively intact. " The articles of incorporation of the Northwestern Oil company have recently boon placed on record at Cheyenne. Among the prime movers In that'enter prise which also has a capital stock ol $10,000,000 are Messrs Hughitt , Keep , Simmons and McCullooli of the Chicago A : Northwc.sturn Railway company al Chicago , Fitch , Buchanan will Morehoiisc of the Fremont , Elkhurn < Nc Missouri Valley railway , and J. H. Bowman of Douglas It is the intention of these gentlemen to proceed to dcvolopo their territory us soon as the llncj of railway last named is completed to Casper , which will bo in about sixty days.
