moro than three years behind iu its

THK news comes from California that
Chinese laborers are being landed right
along in spite of the Scott exclusion law
just passed. Several of these China
men wore landed on the plea that they
wore citizens of the United States. It
appears tv very simple matter for a
Chinese petitioner to add the names of
nn alleged father and mother who will
swear that they are his parents and that
ho was born in this country. The
"American citizen" loophole in the
Scott billsoomsa very convenient dodge
for the inllux of Coolies.
WHAT a farce the national bureau of
dillroiids is anyway. In his annual re
port just handed in to the secretary of
the interior , General Joseph 13. John
ston , the commissioner of railroads ,
stated that ho has inspected the Union
mid Central Pacific and all the roads in
California and Oregon connected with
the latter , and all the railroads in
Washington Territory. "These roadn , "
Bays Mr. Johnston , "aro all in very sat
isfactory condition. Steel rails have
been substituted for iron almost every
where. " For this pleasing information
the country pays handsome salaries and
sends the commissioner on a junket
tour in a special private car supplied
with wines and all the luxuries of the
season by the railroads. And this is
called railroad supervision.

A roving correspondent of the Now
York jfYinc * , anxious , doubtless , to glvo
what encouragement ho may to demo-
c'ratic hopes , writes to that paper that
"it is not at all unreasonable to regard
Iowa as a doubtful state. " Ho does not
consider it quite safe for the democrats
to rely upon the chance of carrying
Iowa for Cleveland to give them a na
tional victory In November , but ho re
marks that "Iowa Is more doubtful than
Illinois , " and cites in evidence some
changes to the democracy of former re
publicans , a few of whom enjoy a local
prominence and a measure of inlluenco
with their neighbors.
Three months ngo an assertion that
Iowa was doubtful might have received
serious consideration , but nobody who
Is accurately informed regarding that
btato will give It any sucli attention
now. Not only is Iowa as safely repub
lican as Illinois , but she will in all
probability do what Illinois very likely
will not , that is , very considerably in
crease the republican plurality of four
years ago , when it was nearly twenty
thousand. There is unquestionably a
very strong sentiment in Iowa in favor
of curtailing the revenues of the
government by reducing taxes ,
but the intelligent voters of that state ,
the large majority of whom are farmers ,
do not see in the sectional Mills bill ,
which discriminates against tome of
their most important products , the plan
of reduction which they believe to bo
wise and just. They think with their
distinguished senator that there is noth
ing fair or equitable in proposing to
deprive the agricultural products of the
northern states of the small protection
that is now given them , while the sugar
and rice growers are well taken care
of. However willing they may bo
to make some concession in order
that national taxation shall bo
reduced , they do not appreciate thodib-
crimitiiition that demands of them to
yield up everything and still extend an
ample protection over a few sugar par
ishes of Louisiana and over tlio rico
plantations of the Carolinas. The
farmers of Iowa know what is just to
their interests , and they do not Hud that
the Mills bill contains il. Many of them
who have hitherto acted with the dem
ocratic party will not do KO in Novem
ber. There is another fact to bo con
sidered , and that is that Iowa
is one of the soldier states ,
and its thousands of veterans
feel deeply thu policy and course of the
present administration regarding their
welfare. The sons of these old soldiers
who will cast their first vote next No
vember will not deliver their ballots
against the party which has over de
manded the generous treatment by the
government of the men who preserved -
Obviously fowa offers no hope to the
democracy this year , and it is as absurd
to class her among doubtful states as it
would be to put Ohio in that category.
It is not to bo expected that lo.va will
this year give the great republican plu
rality she gave eight years ago , but all
indications are that there will bo a
largo increase over the republican vote
of four years ago.
Correcting ft Srcrloits DofVct.
It was only recently discovered that
there is a rather serious defect in the
act passed in 1887 to regulate tlio count
ing of the electoral votes for president
and vice president , and on Tuesday the
senate passed a bill to remedy this de
fect. The act of 1S87 was designed to
remedy some doubtful questions and ro-
inovo certain occasions for dispute. It
changes the date for the meeting of the
electors in the several states from the
first Wednesday in December to the
second Monday in January , but it makes
no provision for the transmis
sion to the president of the senate and
to the judges of the district courts of
the certificates showing the vote of the
electors for president and vice presi
dent , leaving the law of 1792 in that respect - '
spect to stand unropealcd. That law ,
however , does not fit in with the
changed date for the mooting of the
electors. It provides for three certifi
cates , ono to bo sent by messenger to
the president of the senate and to bo
delivered to him before the first
Wednesday of the following January.
This is prior to the time appointed in
tlio act of 18S7 for the meeting of
the electors. A duplicate certificate )
is to bo sent by mail , forthwith , to the
president of the senate , and a triplicate
is to bo delivered forthwith to the judge
of the district. Obviously it would bo
impossible for the electors mooting on
the second Monday in January , as pro
vided in the act of 1887 , to send ono of
the certificates by messenger to the
president of the senate to bo delivered
before the first Wednesday in January ,
but could "forthwith" mail
they a cer
tificate and deliver another to the judge
of the district court.
The act of 1792 provides for the possi
ble failure of the messenger to act by
requiring that in such case the sco
rotary of state shall send a special mes
senger to the district judge , in whoso
custody ono certificate has been placed ,
and the judge is required to thereupon
transmit that certificate to the seat of
government , the evident intention
being that the certificate * filed with the
judge shall take the place of that which
should have been sent by messenger to
the president of the bonato. Under the
act of 1887 there would necessarily bo a
failure , and while it would bo corrected
in the manner provided for in
the old law , It is manifestly de
sirable that the 'lefoct in the law ol
last year bo remedied , so that there
shall bo no cause of dispute or trouble.
This tlio bill passed by the senate
on Tuesday provides for , by directing
that the certificates and lists of votes
for president tind vice president of the
United SVates shall bo forwarded to the
eonato forthwith after the second Mon
day in January , on which the electors
shall give their votes. The bill alec
amends the revised statutes relating tc
this matter , so as to provide thul
whenever the certificate of votci
from any state has not beoi
received at the seat of govern'
mont on the fourth Monday of January
the secrotnry of state shall sand c
special messenger to the district judgci
in whose custody thu certificate of votoi
from that' state has boon lodged , anc
such judge shall forthwith transmit
that list to the beat of government. It
is somewhat singular thut the defect in
the act of 1837 evaded the scrutiny both
of congress and the president , for now
that it has been iKintud ) out it appears
usIllclcnUy glaring to have attracted at
tention on the most curbory perusal of
t' ' > u act. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
An Attractive I'Ynturo.
Commencing with its Sunday ibs > uo of
October 14 , TillUKE will begin the
publication of a series of Interesting
letters upon "tho out of way places
of Asia , " from the pen of Mr. Frank O.
Carpenter , who has made himself fa
mous ever the well known signature of
"Carp. " Under the agreement
made with Tins BKK and sev
eral of the great American
dallies , Mr. Carpenter will traverse
and write up sections of the Orient not
usually visited by the average "globe
trotter , " and the results are tlio exclu
sive property of the journals inter
ested. Mr. Carpenter's first letters will
bo from Japan , thence ho will journey
to China , drifting from the Flowery
Kingdom through the islands of the
western Pacific lo Siam , and thence by
way of the Straights of Malacca and
Ceylon to India. From India ho will
go to Palestine and Turkey , and thence
lo Egypt and the palace of the
khedivo. Dispito the Russian rage
against American newspaper cor
respondents due to George Ken-
nan's articles on Siberia , "Carp"
proposes to traverse the Caucassus and
southern Kussia visiting the domains
of the czar and Greece. This is a nota
ble programme and promises the collec
tion of a fund of interesting information
from oul-of-way places which will provo
of great novelty and interest. That the
lotlors will bo moro than readable goes
without saying. No journalist of tlio
day writes more piquant and charming
gossip than "Carp. " lie has an cyo for
novel situations , a nose for news and a
pen which interprets as truly as a pho
tographer's camera. The readers of
THK UKK can bo assured that a genuine
treat is in store for them during the
coming year from Mr. Carpontor's ver-
salilo pen , and they will no doubt await
lis successive letters with all the impa-
riliencc of a reader inlorested in a
level which is "to bo continued in our
Stop Tliat Liuak.
The cost of maintaining the poor farm
tnd the county's poor for the year 1888
s put at thirty-thrco thousand dollars ,
in average expense to the county of
vor ninety dollars every day of the
i'oar. The maintenance of the poor
'arm proper costs about twelve thousand
dollars a year. There is an average at-
.endancc of seventy-six paupers who are
supported at an expense of over forty
cents a day for each person.
The food for every individual costs
wolvo cents , leaving a balance of
twenty-eight cents supposed to bo ex
pended daily for his benefit. It is im-
) ossiblo to estimate with exactness for
ivhat purposes this money is spent , as
the superintendent of tlio poor farm
nakcs no report of receipts and expendi
tures. It must , however , impress every
taxpayer that the authorities of Douglas
ounty are paying out too much for the
support of paupers and the poor meas
ured by the benefits which they get. A
reform is demanded. The leak must be
stopped. If ninety dollars a day are
spent for the support of the county's
wards , the taxpayer should know that
the poor are getting full value for every
dollar expended on them.
A change is imperative ) in the loose
system of accounts where the expenses
for the poor farm and the money spent
on the county's poor are hopelessly
jumbled together in the county's general -
oral expenses. The commissioners
hould sco to it that every dollar of
this fund is properly accounted for.
Lot tlio leak bo localed and slopped im-
Two weeks ago the council referred
lo the city attorney thu petition of the
Now York Life Insurance company for
a permit to excavate and hold for its
private use sixty-eight by twonty-lwo
feet on Seventeenth street outside of the
curb line. The object of referring this
pelition to Mr. Webster was to get his
views as to the legality of granting , for
private * use , streols and thoroughfares
beyond the sidewalk lino. Instead of
confining himself to the legal points in
volved , ho goes out of his way to discuss
the probable safety of the street after it
has been excavated , and gives his views
on engineering and construc
tion of an underground boiler
house , winding up with the assur
ance that the underground power
house involves no danger to citizens
and urges Iho council lo grant the por-
mot. Now , wo should like to know
what Mr. Webster does not know about
engineering and architecture , and wo
fool confident that such knowledge
would fill several volumes. But why
did the city attorney take so much pains
to enlighten the council on engineering
points when ho was simply expected to
give legal advii-oV Is Mr. Webster paid
by Ihe city to act as solicitor for the lifo
insurance company ? Has ho a contract
for engineering this power house
scheme through the council ?
A NKW issue is likely to bo raised
with Canada , in the event of the senate
passing the resolution of Mr. Blair call
ing for information regarding the trial ,
conviction and execution of Roil for
high treason. Mr. Blair stated in defense -
fonso of his resolution that Roil was a
naturalized American citizen , but wo
are not furnished with any information
as to what the crolchoty Now Hampshire
senator proposes to do about the mutter
in case the information ho desires shall
bo obtained. Rio ! had resided for a
number of yews in this country after
his first obortivo effort at Insurrection
in Canada , and before ho entered
upon his last nnd fatal scheme
of revolution , but it is somewhat uncer
tain about his over having been natur
alized. And oven if ho was ti citizen ol
this country it Is not quite clear that
the United Stales would have any
just ground for making any sort
of a demand upon the dominion. An
American citizen who makes war on a
neighboring state must take the cense
quences If he fall into the hands of that
state. Ills citizenship cannot shield
him and should not. As to Roll , who
was executed three years ago , ho was
not a character thai nny country could
bo proud of. Ho was simply a mis
chievous adventurer , having neither
wisdom nor courage. It Is probable
that the senate will not gratify Mr.
Blair by passing his resolution.
Tni : Chicago police * bohavctt excel
lently in the car-strikers' trouble yes
terday , showing great promptitude and.
vigor , and rigid impartiality. When a
flying brick addressed to an obnoxious
superintendent landed below his belt ,
curling him up temporarily , he became
so enraged that ho drew a revolver nnd
was going to shoot into Iho mob of
strikers. The police disarmed him in a
twinkling. Also when ho retired from
Iho scene a minute afterwards
in consequence of the brick ,
Iho police protected him at
the hazard of their lives and arrested
ono of his assailants who was furious
with drink , fortunately the only one in
that condition. Has not the mayor In-
heronlly the power to settle Ihis qucs-
lion ? If it is thought that ho has not
then the sooner lhat an amendment is
added lo Iho constitution of Illinois giv
ing full discretionary power for the dis
posal of all questions arising between
companies holding cily franchises and
their employes to mayors , the bolter it
will bo for the public , which is always
Ihe real sulTorer in Ihcso contests.
No OXK must bo deceived by the pres
ent slump in wheat , because the price
of Hour has gone up materially in
England , a country where the consumer
invariably buys in largo quantities.
The fluctuations of prices in a board of
wheat speculators will always give a
peed general idea of the true facts when
they are observed in the mass , but if
observed partially , details are apt to bo
very misleading in such a case. It is
at present the policy of the dealers lo
make a big break in prices lo boarc Iho
'armors who have just awakened lo Iho
necessity of holding back for higher
> rices , thereby putting the millers in a
tight place , as they arc not able to uieol
the demand upon them I'ir flour because
they cannot got wheat. Wheat ought
to fetch $1.2-3 a bushel , and It is to beeped
oped that the farmers will not allow
themselves to bo fooled by Iho tricks
and flimsy devices of the wheat brokers ,
but will hold on. For Dvo years they
have received loss than the cost of pro-
duclion , and now that the sun is begin
ning to shine on their side of the hedge
they ought lo profit largely.
OMAHA must feend to the legislature
men who will represent the interesls of
this city and whotu known integrity and
standing in tlio community alTord a
guaranty that they will keep out of.tho
meshes of the railroad spider and devote
their energies to the enactment of laws
that will compel equal taxalion of all
classes of property and fair rates for all
patrons of public , carriers. If the Iwo
great parties do not nominate such men
as their candidates THK BKK will favor
an independent legislative ticket In the
interest of the taxpayers of Omaha and

At the prevailing prices of the various de
liveries of wheat in the markets of the
United States yesterday , Kussia and India
could sell at a profit in our market. The
duty on wheat Is not heavy enough to keep
the foreign wheat out.
Canada this year has Httlo or no wheat , or
at the present prices her fanners could afford
to pay the duty and deliver their grain in
Chicago or Now York.
'Iho high price of wheat has no terrors for

crop gathered , and an extraordinary
boom in prices. Tlio yield falls con

nnd bnrolv equals half an average crop ,
or a tola ! production in the slnto of
about 45,000 bales. The largest grower
in the stale , in Otsego county , hint year
harvested II'.O.OOO pounds from ninety-
six acres , while this season , with IM
acres planted , his crop is only 00,000
pounds. Some growers , however , have
crops this season ol about two-thirds ol
When the picking began a month
ago prices at the yards for choice grades
wore eighteen to twenty cents a pound ,
about tlio KUIIO figures that ruled
through the harvest bcason of 18H7.
Hut IIH it became apparent that the crop
would bo tinoxpeeledly short in quant
ity and excellent in quality , prices be
gan to move upward , and reports of
abort crops in the northwestern hop dis
tricts and in Europe aided the advance.
Now , at t ho close of the harvest , the
growers find ready sale for choice
growtli at twonly-hovon to thirty cunts
a pound. Many growers are holding
their crops for still higher figures.
The impression prevails among grow
ers thai prices will go higher , nnd perhaps -
haps touch thirty-live and forty cents.
