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

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

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.

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.

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

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 :

But the balance of power of conflicting

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
