TIIK Omahog is beginning to receive ceivo considerable iittontion from the press of the great mercantile centers "Coming events cast their shadows be foro. " REPORTS from Kansas show that the farmers of the state have raised crops enough to supply the homo demand , i : properly distributed. Nebraska does better. It will have enough nnd plentj to spare to feed its less fortunate neighbors/ LATKST advices from Europe seem t ( indicate tliat tlio reports of big crop ; have been exaggerated. Jt is now admit ted that the harvests have been deftcien nnd trans-Allantic countries may need i larger supply of grain from Amoric : than was expected. This , of course would mean higher prices and bettoi times for American /armors. ( iitUAT KUITAIN has called a conference once on the sugar question to which sev eral European countries , among then Spain and Germany , have promised ti attend. Tins matter to bo discussed is tin best method to secure the abolition o bounties and drawbacks on the export o HUgar. It is the hope of the English government ernmont to secure the withdrawal of out side stimulus and thus leave the suga industry to find ita natural course. TIIK government is making it morn am more difllcult for bogus homesteaders ti acquire lands without living on them am improving them as the law requires , j recent dicision of the secretary of the interior torior has rendered void several fraudu lent pre-emptions by parties who visile thuir claims about once in six months tin thereby tried to obtain full legal title t them. It is high time that this sort o robbery should be effectually discouraged AHB our business men and citizens gen urally making the necessary preparation to properly decorate their stores and res Silences next week ? If not , the matte fihonld receive immediate attention There must be nothing cheap or shabb about the appearance of Omaha when th thousands of veterans and visitors com to receive her most hospitable welcome And it will not bo enough to tell thor they are welcome ; they must bo give such ample assurance of it in visible ovi donees as will challenge their nduiirntioi and Impress tluin as a delightful mmuor , never to bo effaced. TIIK suggestion of Washington lawyer that the attorney general should com /nonce suit against the Pacific railroa orruptlonlsts , nnd thereby compel Star ford and his friends to answer all quo : tions put to them , may have the virtue c being sound in law , but is not likely t prove practicable with Mr. Garland a the head of the department of justice That olliciiil was among those in the sei ate who were always the friends of th railroads , nnd very likely was ot the men bor to whom the attorneys of the corpor utions had to "explain things. " The attorney tornoy general will doubtless let congros gel the information it desires , if it can d so , without his help. TIIEKK will bo several devices in us next winter , on various railroads , fo heating thn cars , but quite generally th Htovo will bo abandoned and the dangi : of holocausts from this source romovoi Wn noted a few days ago that the No < York Central would have a now mctho of heating , and it is announced that th 1'ennsylvania railroad company will her its cars by steam. After extended ox porimiints the company has reached 01 tirely satisfactory results and will equip number of its passenger trains with th steam-heating appliances , which it is c : 'pooled will answer the object fully. Dm ing the tests an interesting discovery wa made which is said to have suprlsed e : ports. This was that it would only tak a pressure of four or five pouuc of steam from the locomotive t keep tip uniform heat through a trai of eight coaches. The argument again : the use of stenni for heating trains ha always been that it would too greatly d nunish the supply needed for the actui service of the locomotive In drawing tli train. This has been disproved by tf ' result of the tests , which have been con plete enough to demonstrate that a loci motive cau couorato enough stenm I draw a train and supply the coaches. TI lamp , which was responsible for Ignitin the cars at Chattswortii , remains to I of and must ultimately go , ' Making Congressman Buttorworlb , of Ohio , is conducting a campaign in western Can ada In the interest of his scheme of com * mcrcial union. The advices are that a rapid conversion of the Canadian people to this policy is taking place , nnd that the annexation party is also growing. Among those of largo influence who are fully committed to commercial union is I'rof. Goldwin Smith , of Toronto. In n speech delivered at Detroit a few days ago ho said that what Canada means by commercial union Is the total aboltitonof the customs Hue between her and the United States , perfect free trade In nil the products of both countries , whether natural or manufactured , n common tariff against all other conn * tries , the revenues to bo _ pooled nnd equitably divided , filhorics and biid coasting trade in common , open waterways and mutual participation In all commercial facilities and advantages , free circulation of c.ipitnl , commercial enterprise and commercial life from the border of Mexico to the slioro of Hud son's bay. Ho also said that ho believed annexation was best for both countries nnd sure to come. This is certainly comprehensive , nnd coming from a man who has been in the past one of the most earnest loyalists of Canada , nntngoni/.ing any and all meas ures tending to disparage the colonial relations of tlio Dominion to tint imper ial government , is a striking departure. It would seem evident from the conver sion of I'rofessor Smith , as shown particularly in his favoring "a jommon tariff against all other countries , " together with other trustworthy facts , that Congressman Uutterworth has been successful in arousing a much deoptir interest in his project among Canadians than among 'iis own countrymen , and that there is very substantial reason why the uncom promising loyalists of the Dominion should regard the progress of the move , incut favorable to commercial union , with ultimate annexation ns a possible outcome , with a good deal of solicitude. mar. could be better qualified than is the Ohio congressman to present his scheme in the most favorable light , and nothing is more certain than that his campaign will not be barren of results so far as making an impression upon the Canadian people is concerned. Ono campaign , however , will not accomplish the result ho seeks , for however clearly ho may demonstrate that the policy he proposes would operate to the advantage of the people of both countries and it un doubtedly can bo demonstrated thu special interests in both counties , which would expect to bo adversely affected by such an arrangement , will not yield without a very determined struggle. While , therefore , commercial union , which means absolute free trade , be tween the United States and Canada is manifestly making progress in the latter country , with the American people it receives hardly n passing attention , and wo apprehend that Mr. Uutterworth is destined to find among his own country men no cheering echo of the enthusiasm with which his project is received by the people of Canada. It will ho some years yet before the federation of tariff pam pered interests of the United states will be imablo to effectively oppose a policy of commercial union that would bring it competition with any one of them. A Bagaoallvo Example. For two years past the city of St. Pau has been making great efforts to attracl and promote manufacturing industries The result has most amply justified the energy , enterprise , nnd liberal public spirit devoted to this end. In the las eighteen months forty-two manufactur ing establishments have located in tha city , having a combined capital of nearly ? ! ) ,000,000 and a capacity for omployinj : over 7,000 people. This generous accrc lion of invested wealth and of populatior in so brief a time illustrates what may bi accomplished by it community thor oughly alive to its permanent interests and sufliciently liberal to make expendi tures wlioro the reasonable assurance : amount to almost a certainty that sucl outlaj will in time bo returnee many times multiplied. The lain syndicates of St. Paul have gonorouslj offered the most attractive inducement ; to manufacturing enterprises , while tin capitalists of that city have given then no niggardly support. Such evidence ; of local confidence had its salutary effec upon parties seeking a location , and tin gratifying exhibit made of the growth o manufacturing at St. Paul in a year am n half shows the result. The success o these enterprises will draw others , nnd i' ' would not be surprising if at the end o the next eighteen months an even largo ; addition of now establishments cau bi shown. At all events that city ha. . secured the substantial nucleus of an in dustrial system which will certainly develop volop and probably in time become tlu most valuable factor in its prosperity There is n lesson m this example fo Omaha. Wo have many times urged tin view that in order to expedite tin growth of this city and build its prosper ity on a firm and enduring foundation i must have manufacturing industries. A a distinctively commercial city Omah ; will undoubtedly reach largo proper tions. Simply as a distributing centre all the conditions assure n populous' am wealthy city. Hut it cannot attain tn full measure of its opportunities uiUi it shall have acquired a position also as ; manufacturing coutro , and is able tc count the secure investment here of mil lions of capital In industrial enterprise ; giving employment to thousands of pea pie. Then Omaha would havi n source of prosperity and pro gress which no ordinary con tingency could afloat and no ordinnr , competition disturb. Such enterprises once rooted , are not readily transplanted and every year they remain make stronger the reason for continuing in th chosen location. No one who will give intelligent attou tiou to this matter can have a reasonabl doubt that Omaha possesses advantage for many kinds of manufacturing ontet prises , and that these are very sure to bi enlarged in the future , as the conntr ; tributary to this city grows and become developed. Wo indicated In a rcccn reference to this subject how the raw inn terlals handled by the packing house could bo converted into manufacture pro ducts that would furnlnh a solid basis fo scores ot factories and. glr employment to thousands of moi while woolen and flouring mills wouli undoubtedly prosper here. There ar other industries , the products of which are la steady nnd growing demand in this section , which could bo profitably carried on in Omaha. But our advantage need to bo intelligently and persistently presented , anil to bo supported by such enterprise , liberality and public spirit on the part of our capitalists and business men as will bo an assurance of their con fidence in the future of the city. It is this that has given St. Paul its generous growth in manufactures during the past year and n half , and it is quite as neces sary hero as there. Great results > nro to be achieved only by great effort , nnd in this matter other communities are not idle. Omaha's progress towards the position of a great industrial centra must depend largely upon the energy nnd liberality of her citizens in pushing her claims and extending inducements to manufactur ing enterprises to locate here. Hasoall Playing Ignoramus. . Councilman Ilascall can bo very stupid nnd ignorant when it suits him to play ignoramus. He pretends to bo puzzled as to what is the legal and proper course for the council to pursue in letting the oflicial advertising. After Lowry's reso lution to award the printing to the Her ald failed to connect , Hascall asked the city attorney to formulate an advertise ment inviting new bids. The idea of Hascall , chairman of the judiciary com mittee , who knows moro charier law in one day limn Webster does In n month , asking the city attorney's tulvico ! lias- call knows well enough that the council has the right under last year's contract with the UIB : to continue official publica tions in it at ttio old rales until a new contract shall Lo legally let. Ho knows that Judge Wakoley , in the late injunc tion suit , gave the council ample time to invite now bids and let the contract to the lowest bidder as the law requires. The time was allowed to expire without ac tion t/y the council. Hascall knows that the charter does not require n newspaper advertisement inviting bids for city ad- vcrtising.but simply a proper notice by the city clerk lo each of the four Omaha dailies. This notice is merely to stale under what conditions competition is in vited and the time when the contract is to expire. That limit is fixed by the charter to the end o' the fiscal year in January next. All this was known to Ilascall long be fore Lowry introduced the resolution w liich hid been cooked up in some card- room by Chang Mornsscy , Eng Roth- acker , and their warm admirers of the council. Why has Ilascall purposely ignored the provisions of the city's contract wilh ihc Bii3 : ? Why has he and his followers per sisted in placing the city advertising at the same price in papers that are known to have less than one-fifth of the BKE'S circulation in the city ? Simply because the DUE will "not bond tlio pregnant hinges of the knee , that thrift may follow fawning ; " because the Bui : refuses to support Uascall's starvation policy in dealing with the police ; because this time , as always heretofore , the BKE prefers to exercise its independence re gardless of patronage , and will not barter tor its honest convictions ot law anil right for any favors which city councils have the power to bestow. The BEE cares not n fig for the city ad vertising. Each of several business firm ! in Omaha pay moro to the BEI ; for ad vertising in any three months than th ( city has over paid in a year , and that too at moro than 00 per cent , above the rates paid by the city. But we insist that the council shall carry out the letter am spirit of the law in this as in all othei matters that touch the pocket of the tax payer , _ _ _ _ _ _ Omaha as n Meat-Panklng Centre. Thirty years ago Cincinnati was knowi the world over as the Porkopolis o America. To the great pork-produc market , moro than any other agency Cincinnati is indebted for her commer cial growth and supremacy in the Ohi < Valley. Within the past fifteen years tin centre of the pork-packing industry hai been transferred to Chicago. That it ii not permanently located lias been act milled by the leading men enjragoi in the industry. The natural tendcne.v Inis been and continues westward to tin Missouri Valley which has become am always will remain Iho corn-raising am meat-produciiiK centre of the continent In following the law of natural selcc lion , the leading meat packers of Americ : have found Omaha to bo .the location o all others destined to become and rcmaii the greal Porkopolis of the future. Stir rounded by the most fertile corn bolt 01 the globe , and admirably suited by reasut of a temperate and yetsufliciontly variet climate to the wants of the stock-fcedc and caltle-brccder , Omaha's claims tc supremacy us a live stock market an recognized and appreciated. The drift of the catlle king nnd packing syndicates has se toward Omaha , and the permanent manont transfer from oilier cities ti this center is rapidly progressing. Tha fact has atlracled attention at Chicago and her leading papers have been compelled polled to comment upon the impondlnt magnitude of Omaha as the greates stock market of the west. The Chicagi Tribune , in its issue of Wednesday morn i" . I > ny3 Omaha the high coniplimon of being in a fair way of suporseiUn ) Chicago as a hog market , and make predictions which are in accord with tin views of men who have already stakci their fortunes on the future greatness o this city. Ouu reporters are accuse d by the lie publican of "sneaking around" its press room at 4 o'clock in the morning in hop of gettiug hold of a copy of that sheet ii time to save themselves from beiuj "scooped. " This is indeed the unkindcs cut of all. It is by all odds the mcancs thing our antique conlomporary has eve said about anybody connected with thi paper. To call an editor or reporter ; knave is enough to rile his temper , bu to call him a fool is simply exasperating The idea of stealing news from the lie publican ! You might as well accus Jim Stephenson ot trying to steal a rid from Tom Murray. Every boy in Omah knows that the Repullicnn occupies th same relation to a live newspaper that : "pralrio schooner" drawn by an ox-lean does to a lightning express train. CIIANQ MounissEV slopped over a llttli too soon when he announced with : grand flourish of trumpets that thi Ilemld had been "unexpectedly" des Ignatcd as the ofllcUl paper by the conn oil and extends to thut body the thank of that paper. "Unexpectedly1 ! Indeed M 4 . o'clock Tuesday afternooi Chang Morrlssoy's running male , Eng Rothackcr , told parties on the streets that the city printing mtuldlo would take a now turn , nnd the Herald would bo mndo the oflicial paper last night with out a bid. So it was not altogether un expected , w as itt ' But the most ridiculous feature of this jubilation Is that the clique which bad cotton up this plot was not able to de liver the goods. Mr. Lowry's resolution to ratify this star-chamber job was not supported by the usual combine nnd the petty conspiracy fell under the table. SOME one ought to taKO A ttuffod club nnd pound & little common sense into the genius who guides the Itcpublican. It says : The proposition to have the pollen take possession ot the streets adjacent to fires and fence them off with ropes , Is an uncalled for display of brief authority. No serious harm has over resulted In this city from citizens crowdinc around to witness a fire. The po- llre with their patrol wagon and ropes , their clubs and stupidity , will do more harm , and Injure moio live , than the curious public , If let alone. Better keep the police away , Mr. Broatch. . Such exhibitions of ignorance of police regulations In all large cities , and malice toward the chief of police only shows to what extent some people cau go m doing dirty work for political pap. If Seavcy was the pot of the council clique , his conduct and that of the police would have been applauded , IT is reported llmt Receiver Armstrong , of the late Fidelity bank , of Cincinnati , is preparing cases to hold the directors of that Institution responsible for the losses to the depositors. That these oflicials be trayed their trusts by neglect , in falling to personally inspect the > vork of the active ollicials of the bank , there is no doubt. Their prompt conviction and compulsory payment of depositors would prove a salutary lesson to their thousands of brethren throughout the country who simply act as figureheads in financial institutions. Youxa AMEKICA. will not bo outdone by ils falhors. A nineteen-year-old bank clerk at Saco , Me. , has gone lo Canada with over a quarter of a million of the institution's funds. His appearance in Montreal will probably cause the gray- headed boodlcrs to regret f hat they had not improved their opportunities when they were youne and could thus enjoy the benefits of their "financiering" dur ing manhood's prime.

BUFFALO BILL'S BAR. Colonel Groat's .Description of tlio Wlhl West Show In London. "There is a great deal of misapprehen sion among the people of this country in regard to the relation of Butlulo Bill's wild west show to the American exhibi tion now running in London , " said Col onel P. 11. Great , of Ihe Northern Pacific who has rcconlly returned from London , to a St. Paul Globe reporter. "Tho fact is that the wild west show is but n small part of the exhibition. "Tho exhibition , " he continued , "com prises three main departments , covering in all twenty-three and ono-half acres at Earl's Court , London , S. W. The first division consists of the main building nnd the annexes , which contain the art gallery nnd the princip.il rcslaurant. The main building is 1,20' ) feet long and 210 wide. The second section of the ex hibition consists of Buffalo Bill's "Wild W oft , " nnd tha third section comprises the ornamental gardens and pleasure gtounds covering about twelve acres. Here are found among other things , a switch back railway and a tobogganing slide , covering 10,000 square feel. "Although but a part of the exhibition , the "Wild West" seems to have tauen London by storm , and the mammoth grand stand , with a capacity of 20,000 , is often filled. The arena wherein the. "Wild West" is so realistically rendered is nearly one-third of a mile in circum ference , and the canvas depicting Rocky mountain scenes which surrounds it , gives the observer from the grand stand a prairie view , nnd in the tar distance the lofly mountains. Near the entrance from the Karl's Court stalion is the "corral , " or inclosure in which are confined the buffaloes , elk , deer and slcers. Here under the sway of Ogelasa , or Rod Shirt , are the teuees of the Indians of the Sjouv , Arapahoe , Uheyonno , lirulo , Sioux , Shosnono and Ognlalla tribes. Some idea of the scale on which Buffalo Bill's show is conducted may be derived from the statement that it embraces 17 INDIAN TKl'KUS and -17 camp tents , 7 wagons , besides the famous Dcndwood coach ; lti horses , 13 mules , 0 elk , 2 doer , 10 steers and 10 buffaloes. The staff numbers nearly 150 individuals , nnd the Indians over 100. In addition to hundreds of genuine Mexican anil Indian saddles there are revolvers , bowie-knives , sabers , Indian trophies of war , bonnets , war shirts , bows and arrows , lances , war clubs , shioles and scalps complete Buffalo Bill's picture of Western lifo. An Knglish paper speaks as follows of one of the distinctively American features on exhibition : "But what would un American exhibition be without an American bar ? Now we are bound lo admit that the importance of this grand institution has been duly borne in mind by Messrs. liartratn & Co. , the refresh ment contractors. The occasion is a momontiioiis one. It is the first exclu sively American exhibition held in Europe j Iho eyes of the universe are upon it , and Charley Paul and his nimble-handed confederates have re solved that their department , at any rate , shall not give occasion for sneering to the ungenerous. Just look at "Whut'll you drink ! " Iho almanac of drinks.long and short dispensed here , wherein you will find a distinct drink for each and every day throughout the year , the por- teuton * list , moreover , being compiled and arranged in strict accord with the seasons. Hard lo please indeed must be he whose taste can not be hit off hero tea a nicety. Noggs , slings , cocktails , cob blers , skins , twists , ii//.es , swiz/.les , flashes of lightning , sours nnd ticklers- what more do you want ia the way of liquor- inir up ? " The daily atlcndanco nt the exhibition is from 20,000 to 30.000 , and on what is known as Bank Holiday , August 1 , the attendance reached over 70,000. The grounds are reached by numerous rail way * , and a ticket from any slnlion , not lee dintant , entitles the purchaser to transportation and admission to the whole exhibition , inuluding the 'Wild Wcit , ' can bu purchabcd tor one sliil- linn. " COXTAU10N AND PIC AT II. A Foul Ceflipool at Fourteenth and Iicnvcnwnrth Htrcctn , An Insufferable nuisance oxlsls at the corner of Fourteenth nml LeaVeuworth slreota , which if allowed to continue much longer must inevitably breed dis ease , contagion nnd death. It is a la- niontnblo commcnlary upon the sanitary regulations of the city of Omnhn.nud clearly exemplifies the necessity of per fecting this part of the munic ipal government. A BKK reporter happening that way yesterday was fairly lilted from his feet by the stench that creeled his nostrils , nnd realizing that the health and spirits of a largo portion of the community was being jeopardized , bcpnn n little explor ation on his own hook. The building is K four-story brlok tenotnont , occupied ou the ground floor by n green grocery store , saloon and machine shop , nnd the three upper storioa by private families- who cook , oat and sleep within the so crowded precincts. In the basement below there is n connection , by vitrified sewer pipe with Iho city sewerage , which i * contrary to ordinance M 'JO , tlio same hav ing evidently been put in before said or dinance went into effect , and in consequence quence the inspector of plumbing has no jurisdiction , However , ho was noti fied and in company with the reporter , returned to the Inuldinir and made n thorough investigation , finding that this vitrified pipingcxtondsiooponings Which receive the excrement , refuse and filth discharged through a scries of tin pipes leading from the fiats above , creating n nnisomg and poisonous cesspool in the basement. There tire several of these novious openings , also a largo stnndplpu ten feel above llie. level of die basement to the sewer nnd uncovered nl the top. The area way loading from the base ment ui > Ihrough the building , and to which doors and windows open from the several Hats , constitute a nhnft for llto partial escape of the foul nnd mophUic emanations from Ihe cess-pool below , vitiatiutr the atmosphere for a square around , and undoubtedly sowing the seeds of sickness nud pestilence. Thu nrenwa.y on Fourteenth street immedi- ntt'ly under the sidewalk is nothinir but a series of vaults and dumps for filth nnd refuse of all kinds anil descriptions , the ollluvia frum which , welling up in sull'ocatlng volumes through the iron irrntitigs and gaping cracks in Ihe boardwalk at all times is sufficient to paralyze a horse. Ma > or Broateh was called upon and he gave the inspector " orders to take a policeman to the scene of the nuisance and have him examine and report upon the same without delay. This was done , the inspector notifying Ainscow to make proper connection with tlio sewer immediately , and the mayor will call a special meeting of the sanitary board , in order that immediate steps may be taken to insure an early abolishment of this intolerable nuisance.

Such a thing has happened hero before , but there was a sequel to this light in the shape of another be tween the owner of one dog and the spectators , which was sonielhing out of the usual run. A lady , wuil known to the citizens , was the owner of one of the belligerent canines , a white poodle , and was walkinu down town when her pet was set upon by a small dog which is noted for his ability as a "scrapper. " The poodle was worsted and the owner at tacked a couple of men , whom she sup r posed to be tin : owners of the other dog , and after giving vent to her feelings with Koino emphatic language , proceeded to juggle soda water bolttles , and soon had the street to herself. She then called on on Judge Reuiher and asked to have a warrant issued for the arrest of the dog. The judge assured her that the legisla tors had us yet failed to provide a statulo by which a dot ; could bo arrested , but he could issue n warrant for the owner.
