Democratic organs are "becoming very earnest and urgent in their appeals to .ho representatives of the party in congress - gross to brace up their spinal columns ind ( iftitimu mi aggressive nlttlude. The admonition to do this is especially ad dressed to the majority with reference o dealing with the faction which N ox- icctcd to again obstruct the way to revenue - onue reform , and is designed to apply mrttculnrly to the louder of that fac- lon. That the Bituntlon is full of dllll- cully Is frankly admitted. At most the lemocratlu mnjority in the house will > o u narrow otic , and there Is considera te new limber that will take s-omo limo o huasoti , and which will not bo ot nueh value until It is seasoned , t is apparent that great care must jo taken In shaping matters , both bc- ere organization and in completing Hal work , so that existing dilferont'es nay not bo aggravated to the detriment if the party. The pioblem of how to do his moil wisely is at this moment a ourcc of distressing study to the demo cratic mind. Shall the majority , with Mr. Carlisle at its head , send the ob- tructivo faction and its leader to the ear , or will it bo bettor to continue to ccognizo them and make another trial > f the policy of placatlon' : ' It is a perplexing situation , pregnant vith danger in whatever way it shall bo rented , the question being as to which vay is the more dangerous. The nore courageous advisers insist that he only proper thing for the Min ority to do is to ignore those who are iot in sympathy with its purposes. Says in organ of this class : "What is needed low at Washington is a lilllo Jackson- an backbone. The policy of plaeation ind of timidity has disastrously failed wiee , and would fail twice nero if it should be tried. " I'lio country will soon have an op- xirtunity to see to what extent this sentiment or one of a less radical char- u'tor prevails in democratic cir cles at Washington , and meanwhile it s noteworthy that the individual who s the chief object of all this profound ind exasperating attention io going ibout the national capital up- mronlly unmindful of the ngitti- .ion that is tearing the breasts of ils opponents , but undoubtedly with his plans and policy fully settled. And it is needless to say that when the ) ccasion demands he will not bo at all timid or backward in promulgating them. A nnllromt of TholiOwn. . Notice has been served upon the jreal trunk lines , which control No- > raska railway truffle that the citizens of Lincoln are about to build a railroad jf their own to Chicago , in order to get Missouri river rates from the east to the capital city. This is a very creditable exhibition of enterprise on the part of , he business men of Lincoln. But it shows lamentable ignorance of the in evitable results of ruilroud rivalry. They seem to overlook the fact that competition for railroad tratlle is al ways followed by combination. When iho Burlington road hud the monopoly of the Lincoln truffle competition was stimulated by a liberal donation of sends lethe Atchison & Nebraska and .ho Midland railroads , but in i very short time combination defeated competition by the consolidu- .ion of those roads with the Burling- -on. Then the Union Pacific was given i bonus to take its Republican Valley n-uieh into Lincoln. But the Union rticitlc and the Burlington agreed upon i joint high tariff. Combination again defeated competition. Then came the proposals for aid to break this pool , and Lincoln again bonded herself heavily to the Missouri Pacific and the North western railroads. When these com- lioting lines were completed to Lincoln then they vorjyiatuually had to come tc an understanding as to rates. Instead of ono road having a monopoly the truffle is divided among four trunk lines and as a consequence active com petition , which would bo ruinous , h again followed by combination. None of them can nflord to grant Lincoln special favors , flrst , bo- cauao the divided trullio doe : not warrant heavy reductions and seeonrtnecuuso any concessions grantct ut Lincoln would have to bo made tc shippers at common points west of tin Missouri. In other words while rival lines afford bettor facilities for truffle combinntiou always does away will competition. It is u fundamental luwo railroading which always will continue and must bo recognized in dealing will the railroad problem. But Lincoln proposes to build a rail road of her own , and that of course wil not bo governed by the law of combina lion or any other of the laws to whlcl railwuysuro subject. Suppose that such i railroad was completed to-dayhow loiif could it maintain its independence Where would its feeders bo if it wen into a rate war with all the other roads Suppose it could monopolize the ontin business of Lincoln , would that supper the road unless it had coimccd'iir/ / as sured tratlle at Chicago and Lincoli from other lines11 ! If such u road couh bo maintained how long would it re main in the hands of Lincoln capitaliats \Vo remember years ago Omaha startei to build a railroad of her own into south west Nebraska , but by the time i reached the Plntto river it was swal lowed bodily by the Burlington ami condn. Then Omaha started to bull another road of her own to the north west. She voted $200,000 in bonds t this enterprise , but in duo time thu "railroad of her own" was absorbed b , the Chicago & Northwestern. Ii those days there was Htot orally no rival line to th north or southwest , and Omaha' pioneer roads wore an absolute nccessitj But with two competing lines to Chicago cage that are not likely ever to consolidate idato , and indirect lines lending to th east , that projected "railroad of ho own " would prove Itself ti very costl ; enterprise , which in the end must sue cumb to the inevitable force of comblr ution. Lop Thorn Off. In the Interest of economy in the mat : ugomont of city affairs the city counc should , without delay , lop oil nil sine cures ) id leeches , There is no us whatever for a post house keeper , who there Is no contagious disease , and the so-called pest house is a worthless empty shell. There Is no use of paying 8100 a month for a sidewalk inspector who does not Inspect anything , nml has nothing to do In the winter monthseven if ho was disposed ( o oversee the build ing and keeping up of good sidewalks. There Is no use for any of the four mon who are attached to the street commis sioner's caravan. Until spring the street commissioner can personally han dle all the men under his charge. There la no excuse for paying enormous salaries for deputies and as-jl-stants to the city clerk , and pensioning the sons of councilmen just to help them along. The city clerk ought to bo able to perform till his du ties with a seventy-live dollar clerk. Tliero Is no reason why the city should pay for three deputies to the city treas urer when the charter provides for only one. These and other leakages can and should bo stopped. While wo have al ways favored liberal salaries to city otllcials and employes , wo do not believe it justifiable to Keep men on the city pay-roll who ura doing no service , or doing work which others are paid to do. Tun Austrian parliament has pro mulgated an order thai education and politics must bo divorced. This coun try needs no such law that state of af fairs exists1 to a great extent already. A OOI.D mine of fabulous wealth has been discovered near Washington. This will fill a long fell want on the part of our millionaire senators. Other ImiidH Thun Ours. There are promising indications that the Salisbury ministry may go to pieces on some other it-sue than ils Irish policy. There are several English questions o ( more or less urgency upon which there is a wide divergence of opinion among the leaders of the factions that are sup porting the government in its course to ward Ireland , and upon which the mem bers of the ministry are not a unit. Not Iho least of those is the question of "fail trade , " which has a strong , support among the farmers , the working classes and the tradespeople. Salisbury is be lieved to favor the policy , and it is known to have the approval of several of the ministry , but it is uncompromis ingly opposed by the liberal unionists , John Bright und others believ ing that it means a re turn to the old corn laws. Jt would seem to bo inevitable that this question must be brought forward vcrj early in the session of parliament anil the government be compelled to take si position on it. The situation of trade in Grrcat Britain is such that the demand for some change out of which relief maybe bo possible will not bo satisfied witli theories , promises or references to the traditional policy of the nation. The elements which believe that the present fiscal system is chiefly the cause of busi ness depression are sufficiently strong to make themselves felt and so much ir earnest that they will not bo trillet with. The sentiment favorable to "fail trade , " which means a moderate formo protection , has experienced u decidct growth during the past year or twouni it now proposes to bo fairly heard une considered. If Salisbury favors the policj and insists on a measure to carry it int < effect it is hardly possible that the pres enl ministry can remain unbroken , and' ono foimed favorable to the policy wouli very likely encounter defeat in parlla mont. Other questions upon whicl there is disagreement between Salis bury and other leaders are an Englisl : local government bill and a reform o the house of lords , strenuously cham pioned by Lord Randolph Churchill and Welsh disestablishment , urged bj Lord Hartington and his whig follow crs. It will thus be seen that the Irisl question is not the only ono that men aces the continuance of tory power. Th ( policy of the government in Irelani is maintained withtmrolaxed vl gor , ant its promoters profess to be entirely satisllcd with the results. Mean while the patriotism of the Irisl people is not permitted to wane , tin leaders being all the time active ii keeping alive the popular confidence in ultimate victory. * * * The Hituation in Franco is still one o grave uncertainty , with almost any out come possible. After several change ; of purpose , President Grcvy finally sen to the chambers yesterday afternoon hi : resignation. This action of the vetorai statesman , taken after the most cnrefu deliberation , is doubtless in obedicnci to a patriotic conviction that in Ihi way ho could in the present tryinf juncture best cbnserve the pence am welfare of the country , but it is by m means assured that such will bo tin effect. The election of his sue cessor promises to bo a tasl hedged about by many ditllcullies ant dangers. None of those prominent a possible successors Ferry , DoFreycinot Floquot , Clomcnccau , Brisson cat count upon a majority in the chambers and the factions opposed to them an bitter and irreconcilable. Each wil struggle for its favorite with intonsi zeal , and unless a "dark horse" shall b found who can draw support from th' ' several factions the crisis may assume : more serious aspcel than it has yet pro seated. The monarchists on the oni hand and the radicals on the other nr the elements most to bo feared , und th' ' aim of both is the overthrow of the re public. Safety may lie in the inubilit , of these extremists to agree upoi any practical plan of campaign , bu they may bo depended upon t employ every means at their commani to increase the complications and ag gruvato the difficulties of the situation The Orlcunist princes are watching th progress of events with hope and cage desire. Their agents are doubtless n work in Paris , and with them is th sympathy of every monarch and &uppoi tor of monarchy in Europe. The radi culs would destroy the constitution un til ollsh the presidency , setting up in stead of the republic with its restric lions and safeguards a socialistic gov eminent in which every man would b a law unto himself. Jt is to bo hopeC however , that the great majority of th people can bo promptly brought to realization of the paramount duty the now confronts them of innintaiii ing the republican form. ' n it is until the crisis Is passed , leaving t the future the determination of what changes may bo Ji6 ossary to obviate a reeurronro of such polltlciil upheavals. Under the Frenjch constitution the president of thclM itiblio Is chosen by the initlonul iisboni jly for bcven years- und is rc-ollglblij. ' , In case of vacancy by deiitli or otherwise , the assembly proceeds to choose n now president , the council of ministers exercising the ex ecutive power in ( he interim. Under nrliule hlx nnd the law of July , 1375 , ho cnn be itnpcuchod by the deputies und tried by the semite , und in the articles prescribing his duties tiud dolln- ing his powers' und responsibilities the American constitution is closely fol lowed. The cabinet system which gives the minister a voice in the assembly und the custom of cabinet resignations on the defeat of government measures is borrowed fiom England , as is also the clause under which the president can dissolve the chamber of deputies. The nmteriul dilloreneo is that under the French constitution this cannot be done without the con&ont of the senate. The presidential election must take place in joint .session , and nn abboluto ma jority of all votes is required to elect. . * * * The destitution of the London poor increases us the winter advances , and for weeks thousands of homeless men , women and children have been sleeping in the open air. It is ti puthotie : and deplorable story the correspondents toll of these forlorn outcasts becking shelter wherever they cun find it in every qunrtcr of London , ami one that is a disgrace to English civih/ation. Poverty exists everywhere , but there tire few christiun cities where syste matic nrrungemcnts are not made foi providing lodgings for the unemployed. In American cities iiccommodations can always bo found in station-houses if no where else. In London when a police man espies a sleeping liguro e-owcriii" , in a doorway or prostrate on the oolel pavement of a public square , ho passe > by without offering aid or shel ter. Of the thousands encumpeel under the cheerless December faky , many are shiftless vagrants whose extremity is duo to laziness and vicious habits , but a very large proportion belong to another class , They have been industrious , and arc now without food and homeless owing to lack of employment. Their demand for work is not a fictitious oue--a plol on the part of bchoming ugitators. They would not lie down in the door ways of shops nnd on the pavement of Trafalgar Square , covcrcel only by tat tered blankets and newspapers , if thoj could find anywhere indoors a sheltered spot or if they couig get work of nnj kind lo do. Thole destitution is real' Their mibory is abject. Their cry foi help is heard morning and night , tint London does notlrfrfg for their relief. K * * The difficulties between Guntemalr and Mexico , which at one time promisee' a grave ISMJO , arc in a * fair way to bt adjusted. On tho.lSth of September t convention was signed by the ilexicat minister and the secretary of state o Guatemulu , providing for the ncgotia tion , at. the earliest day possible-of , i treaty between the twocountrios , whicl is to look to the establishment of i mixed commission to try all cases arising out of claims again&t either gov eminent. The convention also call for a modilicatiem of the tnrif laws so that the r.iw materials o cither country may bo imported fret of duty into the other. Tli is ami cable agreement was followed by : formal apology on the part of Guatc mala for the failure of justice in tin case of the assaulted ulluclio of the Mcx icun legation , and thus nil causes of 511 feeling woulel so cm to bo removed. I is of interest to note in this conncctioi that President Barillas , who pro claimed the dictatorship on the 20th o lust Juno , almost immediately sum inoned a constituent assembly to rcvibt the constitution and consult for the bcs interests of Guatemulu. That bodi opened its session on the 1st of Octo her , when it listened to a long messnge from President Bnrillus , justifying hi : course and recounting the meusurei adopted by him during the time of hii absolute power. * The cnso of Prince Ferdinand prove : that to bo everybody's enemy is some times us fortunate as to bo everybody' ] friend. When the prince made his au dacious movement into Bulgaria with out saying "by your letivo" to the greal potentates of Europe , every ono faup posed that his stay would bo short am would end in ridicule and disgrace But the balance of power of conflicting jealousies has made his position u strong as if ho hud ontcree Sofia with the introduction of over ; monarch in Europe and with the com mission of an international congress The secret of his strength lies in hi popularity with the Bulgarians , win wanted a sovereign of their own am saw in the independent position of For dinand an opportunity of having ono Little Bulguria is" too important to al sides in the continental contention ti bo allowed to pass uiidor the control o any of the great powers without soriou opposition from the others.

A long regency always u dilllcul nnd dangerous condition in nn empiri or , kingdom , Is one of the coutingenclc that the Germans arc called upon to contemplate ami no ono caji tell who the regent ought to bo. * * * The argument of n Russian ofllcci that Houmnnia would gain more by cast ing In her lot with Uussla than with Austria in u war between those countries deals with a question that Itoumunhi has been obliged to seriously considei of lute. Perhaps ! no country in Europe is in a greater dilemma us to her future course , since either the friendship en the enmity of her great neighbor at the north might bo fatal to her , while neu trality , if possible in a war of Uussln with Austria alone , would be dlfficull should Bulgaria become Involved. It Is said that M. Stumbuloll has been seek ing to arrange a mooting between Kiiip Charles , Prince Ferdinand and Kinp Milan with a view to forming a littli triple nlliancu between them on the model of the greater ono established bj the powers of Central Europe. But the government at Biu'lmrest Is cautious about pulling Itself in Iho same boa' with Bulgaria. * * * The death of M.
