The cause of the dirty water now furnished
by the city mams , is the breaking up of the
ice on the subsiding reservoir. The wind
keeps the cakes of ice in motion , and the agi

fast it Is probable that everything in this line
will bo all right in a few days.
Father McMenomy is having plans pre

seen that the building will bo beautiful in ex
terior and commodious within. lieing ono of
the finest buildings of the kind in the state ,
it will bo n decided addition to the city and n
valuable acquisition to the Catholic church.
The next move on the part of the city
should bo the securing of legislative author
ity to levy a sunicicnt tax to pay for cleaning
out the alleys running from Pearl to Mnin
street , and back again , Just south of Broad
way. The alley is running nt both ends , is
filled with ugly piles of ashes and filth , and
right in the heart of the city is enough to
scare nwny any would-bo investor. No ono
is found who will admit being responsible
for deposits made there , and the deposits
have been increasing all winter.

In the United States court yesterday ,
Judge Love presiding , the case of Mrs. Mary
Poole vs the Union Pacific railway was on
trial. The plaintiff Is administratrix for the
estate of her brother , named Dovorc , who
was killed nt the transfer three years ngo.
Ho was engaged In coupling cars , and ills
claimed that the engineer sent back the rest
of the train with such reckless force as to
smash the Sink , and bring the cars together
Dovoro was caught and killed between them.
The company claims that the brakes were set
on the cars standing on the track , and that
the train was backed up slowly , but on ac
count of the set brakes the link must have
bein broken. In other words , they claim it
was purely accidental , and that there was no
negligence or carelessness on the part of
other employes. The case hns been tried before
fore , but the Jury failed to agree.

George Not In Clover.
An information was filed with the city
clerk yesterday morning charging George
Gcrspacher with assault with intent to com
mit murder. The assault was made Thurs
day night upon the person of ono of Gcr-
spachcr's ' tenants by the name of Pardu , who
failed to pay some rent that was due. Pardu
wns badly beaten , nnd was unable to appear
on the streets yesterday. Gcrspscher is also
said to have drawn a knife and threatened to
malto mincemeat of him. The place where
the affair occurred was the at the old Union
Avenue hotel , at the same place where Juck
Hughes wns killed two years ago by the no
torious Major Williams. Gorspucher was
present nt that time , and it was largely
through his reticence on the witness stand
that Williams wns ncquittod of that crime.
It wns thought nt the tinio that Gcrspacher
was in soniu way concerned in the crime , and
was under bonds to appear in court to an-
swerXo that charge. His hns been a check
ered career , nnd his reputation is decidedly
unsavory. For n few months past ho lias
kept very quiet , living at Belle Clover's house
of prostitution , at bOO Broadway. It is
claimed that the pair are lawfully
wedded , nt nny rate Gerspacher has figured
in police court several times in the role of
wife beater , Miss Belle being the object of
his brutnlily. At such times she has always
made the complaint , nnd generally paid the
fine imposed , although on the last occns ion
she refused to do so nnd his thugship was
compelled to Ho in Jail three weeks , and the
lesson evidently proved salutary , ns ho hns
been less dcmonstrntjvo since thnt time.
The time for his hearing is not yet fixed , but
it will probably bo postponed until the prose
cuting witness can appear In court.
Gerspacher denies stoutly that ho ever
made any assnult upon Purdu , much less did
ho attempt to kill him. Ho says ho simply
insisted on getting his rent , nnd Pardu
ordered him out. Ho refused to gound Pnrdu
cnmo for him with n hate-hut. Gurspachcr
says ho had no knlfo or revolver , nnd thnt in
fnct the whole chnrga is without any foundn
tion , and he expects to prove this by wit

known their plan of nctlon in the case , ns
everything is dolnycd until it is settled

RATES OF INTEREST.
How the Hankers of tlio Country
Grow Rich Some Fat Fees.
n. C. Ayrcs , of Plnnldnton , Dak. ,
writes the following letter to the Sioux
City Journal , regarding the rate of in
terest charged by bankers of this coun
"Under more favorable financial
conditions this country would need no
protective tariff. If our financial policy
would bo changed from ono of special
favor to banks and bankers , and bo es
tablished in the interest of productive
enterprise , wo could manufacture in
competition with the whole world with
out the aid of protection.
As matters now stand , the bankers
who furnish the capital with which
our manufacturers do business are the
chief beneficiaries of our tariff system.
\Vith the control of the volume of
money now possessed by the bankswlth
the banks combined in n national asso
ciation with full "trust" powers , money
for use in manufacturing is so costly
that a protective tariff is an absolute
necessity to manufacturers. It is not
the difference in wages paid that creates
the necessity for protection , it is the ex
cessive interest that money commands ,
und this high rate of interest is estab
lished by the combined banks which
The cost of manufactured goods may
bo found in the following elements :
1. The cost of raw material ,
, The oos of motive power.
3. Tlio cost of labor ,
4. Thorobtof capital , or the ralo of
interest for money.
The foregoing will bo found to com
prehend the xvholo range of possible ele
ments of coat in the production of goods.
Give uifill these at as moderate rates as
prevail in England , Franco and Gor
man v , and there will bo no room for dis
cussion of the tariff question , for tlio
necessity for protection will at once dis
appear. Wltii any of these elements
moro costly than they are in those coun
tries , thetohoico , manifcstlyjlios between
'n degree of. protection and the destruc
tion of more or le.es of our manufactur
ing interests , Under existing condi
tions ii cortninlvflocs cost moro topro-
duce goods in America than it costs in
tlio European < * oifntrios above named.
Inspection demonstrates that this
higher cost of production docs not result
from a greater Bfst of raw material , mo
tive power or labor , but that it is in
consequence of the hMior rale of inter
est , for llioiloy hove than there.
1. No countrjMn the world can fur
nish raw material more cheaply than
the United States , "VVo have mountains
mid mines of irgn ; our cotton is nt the
very doors of oiirj factories ; otir timber
cannot bo surpassed in quantity or qual
ity , nor furnished moro cheaply in tlio
civilized world. And so with iho great
bulk of the material consumed in nil of
our industries. This proposition will
not bo disputed.
2. As to power our mighty rivers ,
with unfailing supplies of water nnd
falls unsurpassed , are ample to run the
machinery of all the continents , nnd our
coal is inexhaustible and so near the
surface of the ground as to defy Euro
pean competition. Wo can make steam
with less labor than it costs anywhere
else under the sun.-
3. As to labor in the United States
and England lot Mr. Blalno himself tes
tify. While ho was secretary of state ,
in 1881 , ho mndo an elaborate report
from statistics gathered through United
States Consuls in Diigland ( state depart
ment , commercial report No. 1U ; page
98 , October , 1881) ) , in which ho used the
following language :
Undoubtedly the inequalities In wages of
English nnd American operative1) nro more
than equalized by the greater efficiency of
the latter and their longer hours of labor.
So the better quality Of their work
and the greater number of the hours of
their labor absolutely make the labor
of the American mill-worker cost less
thati that of his English competitor-
according to Mr. Blainc.
Note that , thus far , as to raw material ,
power and labor , we have the ad
IT But in the matter of interest on
money used in manufacturing there is a
wide difference , and this difference is
against us. English , French and Ger
man manufacturers pny from 21 to 4 per
cent for money , Americans from G to 10.
It is no answer to this to say that the
United States borrows for 3 , 15 } or I per
cent ; or that money is 2 , 8 or 5 per cent
"on call" with gilt-edge securities in
New York. The matter in hand in
volves the rates paid by manufacturers
for money to use in manufacturing in
America and in Europe , if the facts be
not substantially as above stated , then
this whole argument fails and falls.
Investigation will show that the facts
are substantially as herein alleged.
European manufacturers employ
ctmital costing not moro than one-
half the cost of capital to the American
manufacturer. And . this is the sub
stance of the whole matter. The bank
ers of this country control the loanable
capital of the country , and they charge
for it , "all the trallic will bear. " They
are offered amii13 facilities for regulat
ing the supply to the demand , so as to
control rates. They do control rates ,
not through any mysterious interposi
tions of divine providence , , but by un
scrupulous use of the po.vor unwisely
placed in thcirthands by equally un
scrupulous or ani'azingly corrupt legisla
tion.The banking system by 'which the
banks got their notes indorsed by the
United States and made current for 1
per cent per annum , and are given
practical control of the money volume ,
gives their association ( their money
"trust" ) the power to regulate interest
as best berves their money-making pur
poses. In line with this is the practice
of the treasury department in esteb-
liahlng "public depositories , " nndc.r
which practice sixty millions of the
alleged "surplus" in the treasury is
actually distributed among 208 banks , in
sums of $1,100,000 and lefas to each , free
from any interest charge whatever to
the banks that have the use of such de
It may bo said , if these things are
true ot the banks they ought to be able
to furnish capital as cheaply ns it can bo
obtoincd in Europe. Perhaps this is
true ; but they do not. They are human
institutions , and they manage their
affairs for the money they can make.
The point is , that scandalous legislation
nnd administration put it within the
power of bankers to cover the money
market , and they do it. It is a power
almost infinitely greater than nny
king , emperor or potentate posses ,
and it is used wholly for the pecuniary
benefit of the men in whose hands it is
Our public credit is ns good as that of
any nation in the world , porhans the
best of any. Our private credit ought
to be as good as that of any people in
the world. With a financial system
modeled in the interest of the people ,
and not solely in the interest of the
comparatively few people called bank
ers , our private credit would bo as good
as that of any people in the world ; or ,
what is the same proposition differently
stated our people , on equally good
security , should bo able to borrow
money for use _ in manufacturing ( or in
any other legitimate business ) at as low
rates of interest as any in the world.
While national bankers dictate the
financial policy of the United States , a
protective tariff must lurnish the moans
to pay them the excessive interest they
charge , or our mills nnd factories must
stop. Whan the clutch on the tliroat
of American enterprise has been broken ,
the necessity for protection will have
