" The great cities of the ok world and some American cities have become come populous by reason of natural ad vantages. But the modern city is chlell ; the outgrowth of active forces controllci by enterprising men. Omaha Is one o those cities. Her rapid growth as A com mcrclal centre is not so much duo to lo cation and natural resources as it is to th energy , Industry and tact of her leiulln ; business men and capitalists. Much o her recent growth is due to public 1m provcmcnts , but a great deal more t enterprises like the South Omaha stocl yards and packing houses ; to the Incrcas of manufacturing facilities and oxtcnttoi of the jobbing trade. Intelligent men doubtless realize tha public I mprovemcnts cannot go on f orovc at the present pace , and Jobbing alon will not give sufllclont employment to population which must for the most pat bo.mado up of wage-workers. Wo ma safely assort that the Omaha smeltin works and Union Pacific shops einplo more wage-workers than are employe by all our jobbing houses. That Omaha's future depends largcl upon her ability to stimulate and incrca-s manufacturing industries goes withoi saying. A striking exhibit of what can bo don by a cltydcvohl of natural resources i furnished by the city of San Franciscc which now boasts a population of ovc 800,000. With high-priced labor an costly fuel San Francisco has built u very extensive manufactures within th past ten years , which employ over 20X ( wage workers. There are In San Fran cisco 130 large and small boot , shoo an slipoor factories , employing 3,000 hands and turning out manufactured product of the value of $5,400,090 ; 205 cigar fau torlcs , with 4,000 hands , and an output c the value of f6,000,000 ; 35 foundries am machine and boiler shops , omployin ,000 hands , and making goods to th alue of 10,000,009 ; 15 sash , door an llnd factories , with 1,000 hands , nnd ; roduct value of ? G,000,000 ; 2,000 hand re employed on clothing , and the pn net of their labor is valued at $4,000,00 ! .hero . are 9 Hour and feed mills , givin imployment to 250 men , and turning 01 3,000,000 worth of manufactured prc ducts. There is no reason why Omaha can ot become a great industrial center , ho wide-awake and enterprising me who have contributed so much to he ommorclal supremacy will put the boulders to the wheel. The raw me critxls which are handled by the Soul Omaha packing houses , converted inl manufactured products would furnish olid basis for scores of factories an ive permanent employment to thoi lands of men. The hides of the catt nd sheep slaughtered here , converte nto leather would supply material fc auncrios , shoe and glove factories. Tli orns and hoofs could be converted int roducts which our jobbers now impoi rom eastern factories. The bones could I onvcrtod into glue and other market materials. Nebraska's wool produi lould just as readily be converted inl lankots and other coarse woollen fal ics , as the wool of California Is at Sa 'rancisco. If that city can suppo ino flouring mills why cannot an cqu number prosper in Omaha ? This is only suggestive. Wo canu begin too soon to stimulate manufac ures , because in the end they must b come our mainstay. Ono way to stim ate manufactures will be to reduce tl cost of living. Wo cannot ho to compete with Eastern factories wi our high-priced labor , and workingm cannot labor in Omaha for lower wag until the cost of living and rents ha been reduced. The only way to redu the cost of living is to give the laborer chance to buy his vegetables , buttt eggs , and provisions from first-hand , a public market. With the price of II ng reduced , there will be no impcdimc to making Omaha a great industri centre. . The Testimony of Statistics. The efforts of certain so-called ceo omists , of whom Mr. Edward Atkins is an example , to convince the Amcric people that the economic conditions pi vailing in this country and the results their operation , are entirely satisfacto and should bo continued , will not m lead anyone who shall take the troul to seek out the facts and make his derfi tiona in a spirit of canilor and fairne If , in saying this , there is an irapli charge that economists of the school Mr. Atkinson do not deal fairly with I facts no injustice is done those indivi uals. The plain truth is that they u only such facts as they find convenient their purpose , which with respect some of them at least is more selfish th patriotic , or In the interest the science of which they profi to be the exponents. All other facts : ignored , or perverted from their obvic significance and application , and a gn amount of sophistical reasoning a faulty deductions are the inevitable cc sequence. Aiming solely to find supp and justification for a system which every year becoming more burdenso : and oppressive to thn masses of the p plo , and against which there is a stead widening popular revolt , these so-call economists are drivcn.to every' form delusive argument and every device statistical distortion and perversion order to mislead the ignorant , a work which they arc unfortunately too larg successful. Notwithstanding the nxl that figures will not he , there is nothi easier than to make them servo cause of untruth , nnd evldci of this is to bo found abundantly in recent contributions of Mr.tkinson the arguments designed to fortify tariff policy t < gainst threatened assai The ability of this statistician to ingi iously employ and shape facts to his p pose has been conclusively demonstrat An authority quito as worthy of rogan' he , has found that In Mr. Atkinson's cent discussion of foreign systems of t utton there arc serious oversights wti vitiate his whole conclusions. Teach whoso professional business it Is to I part knowledge so that It will bo sorvl able only in one direction and for u s cifio object are not the sort of teach whom the American people can sat look to for counsel and guidance. Ono of the most Important and vali bio papers read at the late session of American Association for the Advat ment ot Science was by Professor Jan : of the university of Pennsylvania , i considered the testimony of statistic ! to our national progress. An obvlov caudldaud. cousclOuUous application the statistics led the author to emphati cally dissent from the conclusions reached by Atkinson and the class ol economists ho represents. These are that the nation is increasing in wealth at an enormous rate , and that this wealth has been nnd is being distributed among the various factors In production m what is so nearly a perfect system , by the more force of competition , that wo have cverj reason to congratulate ourselves as to the result. Such conclu sions are derived from a one sided consideration of the situation , based on Incomplete returns and fault } deductions , It is not an evidence ol growing wealth that wo export large quantities of grr..n ' to bo sold In the Eng- llsh markets below cost , using the sav ings of the Industries of the east to move thcso products of the farmer ; of the west. It does undoubted ! ] rove that wo have a great margin in aving , but il certainly does not prove hat this Is a policy which in the long un will make and kcop us wealthy. The misleading statements of the Atkinson school of economists regard ng the earnings of labor are not the loss oprchcnslblo part of their mothot f making out their one-sided ase. Their estimates are based not 01 what the laborer actually received , but n what ho would have received had hi worked 300 days in the year. Very littli f the labor of the country is employee hroughout the year. The last report o : ho bureau of statistics shows that out o ho 03 chief industries cnumor- ied only 29 , or loss than 30 per ecu if the whole number , kept their met mploycd 300 days. In nearly every department partmont of mechanical industry the los : if time , even in the most prosporoui periods , is from two to three months u ach year , lint the Atkinson plulosa hers ignore this very important con Ideration when making their estimate f the earnings of labor , and ncccssarll ; present erroneous results , manifestly with the design of misleading. I s quite in keeping with the policy of the couomists , and indeed necessary ti heir purpose , that when they come to es imato the cost of living they reduce thi figures to a point which would allow th aborcr only the barest necessaries of lit upon the most economical basis of llv "S- The testimony of statistics undoubted ! : irovcs that as a nation wo are makin ; progress , but it also teaches that if w ire to continue the advance there mils be , as Professor James said , "radical dc partures from our present way of doinj hings. " The conditions of life are be Doming more and more severe. Thi prizes open to the successful arc growin ; .argor , but the number of blanks is als rapidly increasing. There is great and grave social problor pressing for solution which wil require the most careful Invcstigatioi and cautious action if it is to bo solve without seriously disturbing our socie order. Wo cannot go on oporessinj abor with taxation and permitting th exactions of monopoly upon the indu : tries of the country without encouragmj a revolt that sooner or later will mak tsolf telt in a demand for relief that wll not bo dented. It is the office of a wis statesmanship , sncli as it may bo hopoi the exigency will develop , to poacefull , bring about the changes necessary to re move existing defects in the political an social system , and thereby avert the dll ficulty to which these defects are believe to bo leading and continue the natio safely and surely t'n the path of progrcs ; The Ijast Act of Tory Folly. After long and careful deliberation th British ministry finally decided that was necessary to proclaim the Irish Ni tional League , and that not unexpecte action was consummated on last Frida ; Doubtless for the reason that such course was anticipated , it did not creal a very great commotion , and the gcueri comment of those who have the decpe mtcrc.st in it was characterized by r < markable moderation. None exprcsso any fear that the proper and legit mate work of the league would stop , bi it is not to bo doubted that its inlluonc as a restraining force will bo very muc diminished. In virtually outlawing tl league the government is moving in Hi with the logic of the coercion act , at has simply emphasized the pollc of which that act is the pn duct and attestation. To have ignore the league would have been regarded I the whole tory element as a picco of stu tification , and the ministry would hai certainly lost ground with this demon It will now maintain its hold upon its u compromising supporters , but it is n doubted that it will lose largely amor those of the English masses who a : deeply interested in repudiating th form of repression. The argument th would justify proclaiming the loagi could bo applied with equal force to political organization in any other pa of the united kingdom holding vio\ deemed to bo inimical to the trover ment. If this action for the tlostructlc of an organization which on no fair or jn ground can bo regarded as a conspirai shall bo allowed to prevail , there w bo sot a precedent which will be a moi ace to every organization in Great Bri uin that may now or hereafter have a p lltical character. 'It is not to bo supposi that'tho masses of the English people w fail to consider this , and the mo earnestly they do so thu more certa they will bo to see tho4 urgent nccossi there is , In their own interest , of puttii the seal of their condemnation on sucli policy. From this point of view t action of the government need not cati any Irishman regret , though he shou properly regard It , with Mr. Parncll , at gratuitous insult. Tory zeal in the wo of oppression has had its answer in sc eral recent Liberal victories , and t more vigorously it is continued t greater will bo the probability of sui answers being multiplied. A Literary Itnaction. A reaction against the modern realls in novel writing seems to have set 1 W. D. Howells , who has for a number years been a sort of demi-god to roadc of fiction in tliis country , no longer o oupies his exalted position in perfc peace. Criticisms against his criticiii begin to appear. Mr. tlowella reccnl expressed himself rather contemptuous in reference to 11. Rider Haggard , t "She " " Solomor writer of , "King Mines , " etc. , and some of tha pape have taken up the cudgel for the Engll author. This indicates a reaction agair the realism which has now beou in vog for a number of years. ' As it thu case with most opinions , it dlflicult to change < a jvorson's literary views and predictions. They are as ex pressions of his character and a part of himself. Mr. UowoU'snya ' a novel should bo as exact a representation of people as wo find thorn , as iris j > os lblotogivo. So ho says our okl-titno novel heroes , here < inea and villains tire absurd. There Is nothing like thorn "in ovory-dav life. Every person is madb up of good and bad qualities nnd so should the people in the novel bo. The characters you put in n book and the situations ! In which you you place them' ' should bo a : near the originals , the actual facts , as possible. Thu nearer you approach preach lifo as it actually Is , the nearer will your book bo perfect. What is the good of putting impossible men and women and situations into your novels ? They will simply sorv'o to give a wrong view of life to young , impressible minds' . This Is the stand taken by the realist. The idcalUt replies that the object of fic tion Is not to give a slavish representation of life just as it exists. If you carry this beyond a certain point your novel will bo revolting. Wo read to olcvntp out minds , to bo entertained , to bo diverted not to learn how our neighbors niaj empty their slop-buckols. Lot youi novel men and women bo models , the ] may inspire an impressible mind to at tempt to load a higher lifo. And so the battle rages , so it has ant so it will continue so long as there is dif ference In character , In temperament , it mental quality among men. Wo have no knowlcdgo of the absolute. Wo dc not know , no ono will over know , wha the absolute standard of the novel Is Now ono style is in favor , now another the fashions in literature being deter mined , like the fashions in clothing , b ; certain causes which may bo moro o : less understood. Ono thing is certain , however , in re gard to fiction at the present time. Then is vastly too much that is trashy , whlcl it Is a waste of time to read , which i positively injurious. For there are sorni things wo do know a novel should be. I should be well written , it should bo clean whether It belongs to the realist or ideal 1st school. A Week of Startling Nowa. The week just closed has been unusu ally full of news of a startling and mo mentous character. Additional detail of the Chatsworth horror have been un folded day by day , and interest in then has boon succeeded by particulars of nc cldcnts and crimes which , while not re suiting in such terrible fatality , have re colved world-wide attention. Most prom incnt in the news of , the week , and t which the BEK has devoted largo nttcn tion on account of the especial interest i has throughout the atate 'liave ' been th particularsoftheUtc\Vp"riinginColoradc [ While we believe that too , much import ance has been given to this affair by thos who characterize it as the beginning of i national uprising , fct 'the impondinj fate of the people of Meetcor and settler in the White river country has fully jus tified the prommouto which wo havi given it. A ' ' > On Wednesday the''BE't ' ? chronicled thi accident on the BaUimqr' & , Ohio in th city limits of Washington , and on Thurs day another railrpad disaster near Al llanro , O. , both of which resulted in th loss of life. By a collision in Illinois th latter day much live stock was killed am a large amount of property destroyed. On Friday came the news of the terri ble destruction caused 'by the storm n Republican City , in this state , whcreb two lives wore lost and property dam aged to the extent of $30,000. Followiuj this , on the same day , came the intclli gence of the burning in mid-ocean c the Inraan line steamer , City of Mor treal , whereby over four hundred live were endangered. By almost a marvel however , all the precious human frnigh was saved with the execution of thirtoo unfortunates who drifted away in a open boat. But for thu fortunat presence m the vicinity c the burning vessel of anothc steamer , the press of the world woul have been called upon to chronicle tli most horrible ocean catastrophe that tit occurred in a score of years.
