that the prlco of homo product may bo

Ohio * Wool Men Moving.
The Ohio wool growers have An
nounced that they will renew the effort
before the next congress for a restoration
of the tariff on wool. They have pro
claimed their hostility to the manufac
turers who use largo quantities of for
eign wool as enemies to the producers of
the country , alleging that it was their In
fluence that brought about the tariff leg
islation of 1833. The manufacturers of
the domestic product nro to bo invited to
unite with the producers In the effort to
procure n restoration of the tariff. The
Indications nro that the pressure upon
congress is to bo renewed with Increased
vigor , but In the present temper of the
country the effort must bo a hopeless one.
The Ohio wool growers claim that under
the reduced tariff the sheep husbandry
in the United States has ceased to bo
remunerative. This staple argument
of all Interests seeking protection may
have force as to the Ohio producers , but
t Is extremely questionable whether it
will hold good as to tlio producers of the
whole country. The fact that the pro-
luctlon of wool has rapidly Increased in
Jullfornla , Colorado and Now Mexico
must bo accepted as pretty good evidence
hat it is not an unrcmunoratlvo Industry
u those sections. It is true that the con-
lltions there nro much more favorable
lian In Ohio , but If the producers of that
state must contend ngainst odds which the
sheep husbandry of the mountain ranges
of the far west escape , the consumers of
ho country will not see tlio justice of oil-
setting this disadvantage by iucrcas-
ng tariff duties which they
must pay. At every session of
congress for the past four years
the wool growers of Ohio have come for
ward with this satuo appeal to have the
arid'restored , that they have been unable -
able to make a case that commended
tsclf to serious consideration. Even Sen-
itor Sherman , who voted for the reduc
tion in 1883 , has not seen his way clear
to the support of the demand for the res-
oration of the duty , nnd certainly ho
would bo as likely to look with favor
upon the claims of the Ohio wool pro-
iluccrs ns any man , if ho could find any
sound and sufficient reason for doing so.
The Ohio wool growers will discover that
the time is less propitious than ever be
fore for the success of tbeir efforts. The
country demand ? a policy the opposite
of that they desire , and it is at loost cer
tain that there will be no increase of tar
iff duties. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
Some Plain Talk.
The "few plain words" which John A.
McShano's editor takes upon himself to
address to the president of the board of
trade , in connection with the call for the
meeting Saturday night , reminds us of
the fable of thu inflated bullfrog. Who
is this person who assumes to instruct
the board of trade of Omaha as to what
they should and should not doat the
forthcoming meeting ? Is this person a
taxpayer or in any way responsible ?
Why should the board of trade take its
instructions from n hired man who can
pack nil his valuables in fifteen minutes
by the watch , pick up his grip-suck and
bid good bye to Omaha any day in the
year ? Hut oven if this person voices the
sentiment of the proprietor of the Herald ,
his impudent and dictatorial talk is sim
ply unbearable. "You are probably
aware , sir , " says this adventurer , ad
dressing himself to Max Meyer , the
president of the board
That Mr. Edward Kosewater yesterday
circulated a petition among certain selected
business men , the purport of which was a re
quest by the signers tbat you , as president of
tlio Omaha board ot trade , call a meeting of
business mentaxpayers and leading citizens ,
at which meeting the differences between tlio
city council and tlio police commissioners ,
( both bodies being present by Invitation ) ,
with a view of harmonizing existing differ
"You are also doubtless aware that It Is Mr.
Kosowater's plan to exclude from that meetIng -
Ing any citizen whom you fall to Invite.
"You are further aware that Mr. Kosowater ,
the projector of Oils mpotlng ln bis paper
announced that tbo purpose of the meeting
was a partisan one to make the council re
trace from ita position.
* # * *
"Now , tbo Herald makes bold to say that
It that meeting resolves upon a partisan and
uncompromising stand , It will not help mat
ters one bit. It Is within the knowledge of
tlio writer that the city council cannot bo bull-
do/.ed out of its position.
"There can bo no comnromlse of any kind
whatever unless Webber S. Seavey U de >
posed , from the position of chief of police. "
Now let us say a few plain words. The
object and purpose of thu meeting is
plainly set forth in the call. The board
of trade is composed of more than twc
hundred bankers , merchants , manufac
turers , real estate dealers and profes
sional men. They nro called together
for tlio purpose of voicing their unbiased
sentiment on the course of the council
with regard to the police force. Other
respectable taxpayers who are not mem
bers will bo invited in numbers limited
by the capacity of the chamber of com
merce. The mayor , council and police
commission are also invited to bo present.
They are , however , expected to listen
nnd hear the views expressed , rather than
monopolize the time by ventilating their
grievances or explaining their conduct.
The mooting is called with n view of
impressing upon our public servants tlu
fact that they are expected to represent
tlio will of their constituents , and in
order that they shall not bo in the dark
us to thnir sontimont.1 on the matter o
police management. The mooting is
under thu auspices of the board of trade
In view of last winter's oxporicncft n
the charter meeting which was dls turboc
nnd nearly broken up by n gang o
roughs nnd hoodlums , the board has vorj
properly excluded all outsiders who arc
not invited by the secretary. The meet
ing will bo n representative gathering o :
business men and tax-payers.
The notice served by Hivscall's mouth
piece that the dismissal of the present chie
of police is the ultimatum of the coun
cil is in itself sodlcloua. It is proof posi
tlvo that the chief conspirator arrogate *
to himself powers which the law express ! ;
confers on the commission. If otho
counciluien who have been his dupe
propose to defy public sentiment and ig
nore the law as defined by the olty Rttor
ney they will prove thnmsolroi rocrean
to ttiolr trust. This is plain talk.
The nuslucii Men'a i'rotrct.
Tlio call for a special meeting of the
board of trade , to which loading buslnoa
men nnd taxpayers have been invited
will bo the first opportunity for a publii
expression of popular sentiment on the
course of tun council in obstructing tin
police commission in its effort to glv
this city proper police protection.
To tlio' business men and prop
rty owners of Omaha , thl
is a question ot vital concern.
An efficient , well-disciplined police is
essential to the protection of life and
property. The experience of other cities
has demonstrated that the only way to In-
sttro ofllcloncy in the police force Is to
divorcu it from politics. To this end the
framers of our charter have created a po
lice commission with full and exclusive
power to appoint nnd remove policemen ,
and govern the forco.
The desperate nnd lawless effort of
the council to nullify the charter in this
regard and Its audacious attempt to in
timidate nnd stampede the regular po
lice , appointed by the commission , by
publicly denouncing thorn as pretended
policemen , and notifying them that no
pay will bo allowed for their services ,
incites resistance to authority , disorder
At this stage it behooves our law-abid-
ng and tax-paying citizens to pu-t in a
protest. And that protest , whether
heeded or spurned , should bo emphatic.
There can bo no .compromise with an
archy , even when the conspirators and
abettors are councilmcn.
It is to bo hoped that every member of
the board of trade will be present.
Tim Case of Stanford.
The country is watching with a good
leal of interest the case ot Lcland Stan
ford , chiefly with reference to whether
the administration will take any action In
this matter or will permit this recusant
witness go his way conscious of having
practically set tbo government at defi
ance. Although it has been decided that
tbo investigating commission has not the
power to compel Stanfoid to answer
questions , the courts are open , and the
country believes it to bo the duty of the
government to appeal to the courts.
It does not seem probablehoweverthat ,
this will bo done. The assistant attorney
general is quoted as saying that it would
bo hardly proper to proceed in the courts
until the investigation is completed. Why
such a proceeding would not bo proper
is not apparent. There is no room for a
doubt respecting the ability of the srov-
eminent to make a case ngainst the cor-
ruptionists. The evidence already se
cured and the still more important evi
dence to which it points , is believed to be
ample to wan ant proceedings. It is not
pretended at the department of justice
that this is not so , but there appears to
bo a disposition to evade responsibility
and leave Mr. Stanford to be cared for
by some other power. The effect will be
that he and his colleagues will gain more
time In which to prepare for defensive
operations , and undoubtedly they will
The administration seems to bo blind
to its opportunity in this matter. There
is n chance to strike a most effective
blow for popularity , but the administra
tion evidently lacks the courage to do it.
lioss Hascall has completely lost his
head , as be always dors when ho is given
a little brief authority. Hecuuse he ran
ahead of his ticket last spring for the first
time in bis career ho imagines lie has the
whole city by the horns , and can do just
as ho pleases , law or no law. lie will
probably find out that ho caunot defy
public sentiment with impunity just as
he could six years ago when ho stood out
as the leader of the Holly boodle gang in
the council , nnd forced leading taxpay
ers to appeal to the courts for protec
tion. Hascallity was given a very black
eye by the courts nnd Huscall himself
was consigned to private life on Thir
teenth street for a few years.
We arc not finding fault with Pat Ford
in doing everything in his power tocro-

council of the Third ward roughs and

Counsman , who pretend to respectability
and decency , ought to bo ashamed of
themselves in playing cat's paw for lias-
call and Ford.
Wn.r , Boss Hascall or any of his dupes
toll our citizens why they passed that se
ditious resolution , notifying regular
policemen that they have no right to
make arrests and will get no pay , just on
the eve of the fair and grand army re
union ? Is it not plain on its face that
they mean mischief nnd want to precipi
tate disturbance ?

ANY concessions which the council
may make on the appointment of special
policemen during the fair , cannot and
will not justify its seditious course in re
fusing to vote pay or give olliciul recog
nition to the regular police.
TIUIK : : can bo no talk about the ap

In the 10co of all the difficulties which
hare been raised in the last six months
to check the preparations of the French
Universal exhibition of 1830 , the authori
ties still push on their project , nnd nro
now beginning daily to announce some
now success Thus , It Is no longer quite
clear that Germany , Russia , and Austria
will definitely decline to porllcipato oven
officially. The campaign waged against
the Germans and their commercial role
may possibly prevent Germany from
sending any but artistic contributions ;
but many modifications of opinion may
occur within the next fifteen or eighteen
months. South America , naturally North
America , and most of the smaller Euro
pean countries , which nro cot directly
within the Influence of the Triple Alli
ance , have sent in their com
plete adhesions , and the French
government li using every oflbrt to make
it clearly understood that the celebration -
bration of the ccntcnnary of the French
revolution and the Industrial and nrtistio
universal exhibition will bo entirely sep
arate and distinct. This separation is
wise as well as necessary , anil so great
is still the prestige of Paris in Europe
tbat when the time comes we may expect
to sco upon the Champ do Mars a much
larger grouping of Industries and arts
than In 18U7 or in 1878. Certainly the
preparations are grandiose enough.
Many thousands of workmen have been
toiling on the Champ do Mars for moro
than six mouths. Most of the founda
tions of tbo vast buildings have already
been laid ; tlio great basin in which the
Eillbl tower is to stand is partly built ,
and the French jurors on the difYorcnt
groups number some 1,800 of the leading
industrial , commercial nnd artistic digni
taries of the land.
A temperance movement is making
extraordinary progress in Norway , it
has especially talon : hold of the peasan
try and the laboring population in the
cities , and is working a great change in
the sentiments of the Norsemen on this
subject , and their habits are showing a
corresponding change. The consump
tion of alcoholic liquors averaged , ten
years ago , six litres annually for each in
dividual ; in 183-1 the official statistics
showed a reduction to three ; and if sta
tistics were obtainable for the last two
vcars , a very largo reduction even from
this figure would probably bo observed.
Within a few years ) 030 total-abstinonco
societies , with a membership of 70,000 ,
have boon formed , besides a number of
Good Templar lodges and blue rib
bon societies , which will unite in light
ing the drink evil. Prohibition is , for the
first time in the history of Scandinavia ,
beginning to attract attention as a possi
ble political factor , and an address to the
Starthing demanding a law prohibiting
the manufacture and importation of al
coholic liquors obtaiuod in a short time
the signatures of 03,000 , men and women
over twenty-one years of age , although it
was not by nny means generally circu
lated. In tlio province of Christiansand
a similar address obtained 33,000 signa
tures. Twenty or thirty members of the
Storthing are also members of.total absti
nence societies ; but they were not elected
as representatives of this idea. In short ,
wo may look with confidence for a pro
hibitionist party in Norwegian politics in
the near future ; and in Sweden and Den -
mark there are indications that similar
forces are at work.
Cuba has always been a hotbed of revolution
elution , nnd the atrocities which have
from time to time boon committed there
have scarcely been paralleled in modern
history. The island is again in a condi
tion of revolt ; nnd , contrary to all prece
dent , the volunteers , between whom und
the native Cubans there have always
existed bitter jealousy and enmity , have
joined tiie rioters. Any progress
which might have been made in the
prosperity of Cuba lias been obstructed
by the oppressive character of its gov
ernment 'and by the venality of tlio
captains general , who have always been
sustained by the authorities at Madrid.
The present revolt , however , difiors from
previous uprisings. Captain General
Marin is opposed by political bodies who
have evidently boon profiting by tlio ad
ministration of Salamanca , nnd who
therefore resent his removal. The fight
is a struggle of corruption against purity ,
nnd illustrates anew the capacity of any
branch of the Latin race for appreciating
the advantages of good and progressive
government. If the uprising shall not bo
promptly quelled wo shall doubtless soon
hear of a revival of filibustering by sonic
of our soldiers of fortune.
It scorns to bo certain that China has
at Jast granted to American capitalists
the railway and telephone concessions
which English , French and German syn
dicates have been eagerly seeking for
fioino years. This is u most importhnt
commercial event. It moans not only
the opening up of China by railways
and the stimulus of trade all over that
grout empire , but the creation of a great
market for American goods , particularly
iron nnd steel for the construction of
these roads. It moans also the creation
of a great market Jor American silver.
The development of railroading in China
by American capital will work of course
great industrial results not only for this
but for other countries. England will
expect to furnish the stool and Iron. She
can undersell any other nation , but
American steel and iron men are
so highly protected nt homo that
they can well ; afford to , nnd
without doubt will/put * their products
upon the Chinese market at much lower
figures than , upon the homo market.
They will thus successfully compote with
England or Germany in this respect , and
will bo favored by the Philadelphia syn
dicate. Silver is tbo standard ot value in
China. Heretofore India has been the
chief market for silver for coinage pur
poses , but the stimulation of trade in
China by railroad building would oi
course greatly increase the monetary
circulation and create a wide demand for
American silver. In short , the com
mercial supremacy of the United Stales
in China will bo eiVucttmlly ostabllahn d

The riots at Ostond are said to , have
'made a difference In the supply of the
London fish markets. The Belgian toilers
ot the sea urge that they are put to a dls *
advantage by the lack of R tariff against
foreign fish entering their homo ports
while their own must pay charges in
llrltlsh nnd French markets , llonco ,
when an English bark last week sought
.0 enter at Ostond with n cargo of fish ,
.ho local population attacked the crow
nnd destroyed their fish , Of course this
was conduct for which the authorities ,
liad they allowed it , would have been
licld answerable to the British govern
ment , nnd hence the police nnd mllltiri
were called out with the serious results
already recorded in loss of life and in
wounds. The troubles may not yet bo
over , slnco the fishermen will be rein
forced by their returning comrades , and
new attempts of English vessels to cuter
may create fresh trouble. What the
Belgians want is cither free trade in the
ports of their duties or else duties at
tiorao on the imports of those who impose
like restrictions on Belgian fish.
An evidence of the suspicion and un
rest which prevail in Europe is scon in
the arrest of the two secretaries of the
minister nt wur for disclosing to a news
paper a plan for carrying the mobiliza
tion scheme , which the government
wished to keep secret. Not only Franco
but also Germany nnd Russia are using
every effort to kcop tbo results of their
army mobilization a profound secret
from each other. Those maneuvers
have virtually the same relation to a
rent battle tbat a dress rehearsal haste
to the public production of n play. They
test the efficiency of the various corps ,
and tlio result often brings about a
change in diplomatic tactics. That there
is a strong war feeling in Franco cannot
be doubted ; and the premature divulging
of the government's plans , if it should
lead to even a temporary abandonment
of the scheme , might servo only to in
crease the spirit of defiance and cause
manifestations which would widen still
further tlio breach between the two

The kine of Saxony and of the Belgians
are contrasts In every way. The former If
the more regnl of the two. though shorter by
several Inches , says London society. Ills
face has much dicnltyot oxpie.sslon , besides
a look of bhrcwdness nnd common sense ,
which Is by no means a usual characteristic
of nltlior Imperial or regal persons. The king
of Belgians Is very tall , but does not Impress
OIK ; with any Idea of klngline.ss ; bis gait Is
almost slouching and his eyes Imvo a shifty
look. His queen , on the contrary , has
a charming face. Her eyes look stralgnt at
the person she Is talking to wltb a sort ot
laugh in them ; her beauty Is as unmistakable
now as when , some years aio , she was one of
the brightest stars In tbo tiruiaincnt of the
Good MiaMonnry Field.

Hut a trust company a corporation of cor

devil In the moral world ? It Is the embodi
ment of famine ; Its multitudinous tondancles
each vital and each Insatiate. It thrusts a
sucker into every homo. The measure of Its
hunger Is the need of Its prey. It drains the
product of the muscle-forco and brain-power
of every bread win nor tor its ravening maw.
Born of greed , what is a "trust" but an ap
petite unappeasable for told ? Fed to grow.
It grows only to feed. And reversing the
ordnr of nature the baser organization gluts
Itself In the nobler ; avarice feeds on the
Intellect , the affections and tbo lives of men.

Far up the slope of yonder eastern bib ,
A lonely farm house lingers in decay ;
Deserted , cheerless , debolato nnd grny ,
The sport of winds that mock It at their will ,
The farm Is barren ; but the stony-rill
That babbles through It , answered to tbe
Of children once , who grew , and went
With recollections that are tender still.
Now , In the New England of the West ,
Offspring ot this have other homos up-
Whntico loving hearts fly back to yonder
Like birds of passage from n kindlier rene ;
In fond reniRmbraiicn of the parent nest ,
Aa oncu U was , before the brood lud flown.
