against the American postofllco depart

carelessness in handling Mexican'mail.
'This , too , after Don Dickinson made
his glowing report to congress of the

for the year.
INVESTIGATION does not always in

thnt members of the board of education
vvlio are mixed up with the school fur-

t-- about these peculiar transactions. It is
not expected , either , that the furniture
agents will give away the secrets of
their trade. It is well known to all
who are familiar with the echool b'ook
nnd the school furniture business that

the influence of school boards nnd em
ployes is sought and procured through
percentages nnd ' "divies. " It is not to
bo presumed that Mr. Morrow , who
plumes himself upon being "Influential"
with gortaih members of our board of
education , and especially with the
building committee , has invented the
btory he told ' to n man whom , at the
time , ho believed to bo the agon't of a
K'hool-desk concern. If Morrow did
weave this yarn out of whole cloth , ho
Is ji very bud mah to have about the
promises of a school board ; if ho told
tVro truth , the premises need a very
general overhauling.
TUB legislature of Colorado will , nt
its coining scission , elect n successor to
United States Senator Bowen , und the
present indications nro that Mr. Ed
ward Wolcott , u prominent railroad at
torney , will bo the choice. This gen
tleman has a good local reputation as a
lawyer , n more than local reputation as
a poUvf pluyOP , ftnil has made one or two
nlovor ofTorts in the line of oratory.
Hut his strength lies in the fact that ho
is a devoted friend of the railroad cor
porations , which are a power in Colorado
rado , and are using all their iiilhionco
in his behalf. IIo is opposed by a largo
majority of the republican newspapers
of the state , mainly on the ground of
hid devotion to the corporations , but
the Colorado legislature is largely
composed of men who owe their
political standing to railroad influence
and aidand with the brass-collar crowd
"SVolcott could have no stronger recom
mendation than the fact that he is the
creature of corporations. It will bo a
matter for general regret if Wolcott is
Hucccssful , However ample and bril
liant Jils qualifications , the United
States senate already lias too many
members owned by the corporations ,
nnd there is reason to believe that
Wolcott would provo to be ono of the
most aggressive in their Interest. The
policy of the people should bo to keep
railroad attorneys out of congress and
by Btatuto prohibit a member of that
body , as the bill of Senator Bock pro-
poscst from accepting any employment
from a railroad company. Only in this
way can the people ever bo assured that

On the day before the election the
following editorial appeared in THE
The City Hall Proposition.
The proposition to erect a city hall costing
not more than § 200,000 , on the corner of
Eighteenth and Farnam , will be voted on to
morrow. The building , to bo constructed on
the lot opposite the court house , is to ho a
magnificent and substantial structure ,
planned by E. E. Myers of Detroit. The
perspective view of the building has been on
exhibition for several days , and lias been
pronounced by all who have scon it a sightly
and tasteful elevation. While- Is to bo just
as substantial in every respect as the court
house , it has been planned expressly with a
view to make n striking contrast to that
classic building.
That Omaha needs a commodious and per
manent city hall building is admitted on all
hands. Tlio old llro trap now occuplcdin
part , as n city hall , would bo a disgrace to
any village. The quarters which the city
has secured in the now court house for some
of Its officers must be vacated In three years
under tlio contract , which is not likely to bo
extended , because the county will need tlio
room for its increasing business. Next to
having the city under the miuic roof with the
county buildlnc , the location opposite to the
new court liouao is the most convenient and
desirable. The property owner who goes
to pay his taxes does not want to travel half
n mile from ono sot of offices to the other.
Every year the city and county business Is
becoming more clearly identical , and the
transactions between tlio ofllclals of the ono
nnd these of the other more frequent and
Viewed from the standpoint of public im
provements it is to the Interest of every citi
zen that the proposition should carry. The
assurance of the construction of the city hall
will stimulate property owners on upper
Farnam to erect largo and costly bloolts of
ofllco nud store buildings jvUhin the next two
years , diva employment to hundreds of la-
iKirors nnd mechanics and add largely to the
aggregate tax Income. It will givo. Omaha
building b ° om during the coming year ,
which will aoou place u ? by the eido of Kuu-
sas City , St. Paul nnd Minneapolis.
Every ballot cast on the city hall
proposition on the 3d day of November ,
1685 , had upon its face the full text of ,
the proposition to ratify the location of
the city hall on upper Farnam.
The proposition was ratified by over
throe thousand majority. Even the
Fifth ward , of which Jofforeon square
is the center , only cast sixty-five votes
against it , and ono hundred and eixty-
eight votes in favor of it.
And now lot us ask where has the un
derhand worlc boon with regard to the
city hall ? Who has boon guilty of de
ception and venalityin this connection ?
Look at tHe men who wore making
harangues in the council chamber before
the recent election I Every ono of them
was in Omaha when the location was
made. Hascall was a party to the con
tract by which the ground was acquired
for olty hall purposes. Dr. Mercer
bought the corner of Sixteenth and Far
nam for thirty thousand dollars , and on
the strength of the city hall location
two blocks beyond resold that lot for
seventy-five thousand dollars. Later
on lie und others bought the Richards
lot , corner of Eighteenth and Farnam ,
for twenty-fire thousand dollars , and
they resold that lot to eastern capitalists
for fifty thousand dollars on
the assurance that the ' city
hall was forever located on
f , , * 4S3-ii * ,
the corner opposite arid cast. It was the
most unblushing effrontery on the part
of Dr. Mercer , after ho had induced
capitalists to invest enormous sums in
Upper L'arnam property to stand
up and ndvocato a re-location. The
other champions of violating contract
obligations and robbing unsuspecting
investors nro on a par with llacnll nnd
Mercer. They either liavo spite to
gratify or Mercer-nary ends in view.
To keep up any further agitation of
this issue , in view of the obligations
which the city has assumed toward for
eign capitalists nnd its own citizen's ,
would bo worse than repudiation.
There Is ono fact in the annual report
of the secretary of the treasury to which
very llttlo prominence is pivon , but
which , nevertheless , is interesting and
instructive. It relates to the decline of
American shipping in the world's car
rying trade. Tlio report shows that
while the imports and exports of this
country have considerably more than
doubled in the last thirty yours , the
proportion thereof carried in American
vessels has decreased from ovorsov-
onty-fivo per cent before the war to loss
than fourteen per cent at the present
time , while of this small proportion only
fifty-three per cent was lust year car
ried in American steam vessels. In
other words , over 80 per cent of our
trade with the world id done through
the medium of foreign vessels , chlolly
those of Great Britain.
Thus our merchants anil manufactur
ers pay annually into the pockets of
European ship owners nearly or quite
two hundred million dollars for freight
charges , wluln they are necessarily also
placed at a disadvantage in competition
with the merchants and manufacturers
of Europe , both as to rates and privil-
leges.Certainly among the disasters
of thu war hardly ono was moro serious
limn the .destruction it brought to our
merchant marine , and while nearly
all eiso has been repaired our
shipping Interest , so far as the
world's , trade is concerned , is in worse
condition now than when the war ended.
No statesman has appeared capable of
presenting a practicable and satisfactory
plan for restoring this important inter
est , and year nftor year it has gone on
of the world the American flag at the
declining , until now in most parts
masthead of a vessel is ono of the rarest
of sights.
The next administration and congress
will have an opportunity to consider
this subject , and it is altogether probable -
blo that within the next two yours it
will become prominent in public attention
tion and discussion. With the moro tin-
mediately urgent questions of a re
vision of the tariff and the admission
of the territories disposed of , which will
bo done at the first session of the next
congress if not by the present congress ,
there is no question in sight of greater
concern to the practical interests of the
nation to the future of its commerce
and to its ability to successfully com
pete for the world's trade than that of
rebuilding its merchant marine and re
gaining at least itn former position in
the world's carrying trade. If the next
administration shall be able to solve the
problem involved in this question , so
that American commerce shall bo sup
plied with American faciTitics for its
transportation without building ui > an
interest to becorao a charge upon the
public treasury , it will perform
a service to the country of such
ineslimabfo value as to give it a most
conspicuous nnd honorable place in the
nation's history. As j'et an entirely
practicable and satisfactory policy has
not been suggested , although the ques
tion has boon discussed ia and out of
congress for twenty years.
Committees liavo been appointed by
the city council and board of trade to
prepare amendments to our charter.
These committees , for the present , at
least , nro acting separately. Tlioir rec
ommendations may clash in many very
essential particulars. Loss than four
weeks remain for them to complete
their work , and the chances are , ten to
ono , that by the time the legislature
convenes the delegation will Hud itself
loaded down with all sorts of recom
mendations , on which they will bo as
much divided as Iho committee. And
then wo shall liavo another huggermugger -
gor for a charter , with Incidental con
troversies that will retard its passage.
In fact , if any radical reform is
proposed that touches corporations and
syndicates on a tender spot , wo are
liable to liavo a repetition of the dis
graceful conflict of. two years ago. This
ought to , If possible , bo avoided.
The charter committees and members
of the delegation should got together
as soon ns possible , talk ever every
change proposed , and harmonize differ
ences before the legislature convenes.
Unless this is done , Omaha will again
bo the butt of jobbers und legislative
mountebanks , who always take advan
tage of such squabbles and make moun
tains out of molehills. Whllo the
Omnlm charter affects nobody outside/
of this corporation , nud Omaha pays
one-tenth of the state taxes , and receives -
coivos in return loss than ono per cent
of the appropriations , she is obliged to
tussle and wrestle ever her charter as
if the state was contributing millions
toward her institutions ,
Tnn report that the Chicago pork
packers liavo formed u trust to embrace
the packing industries of St. Louis , St ,
Paul , Chicago , Omaha , Dos Moines ,
Kansas City and Sioux City is not at nil
improbable. It is well known that the
pork packing establishments of Kansas
City , Omaha , Sioux City , St. Paul and
other cities are closely connected with
Chicago firms. In fact , the former wore
originally branches of the parent houses
in Chicago. An understanding there
fore may have boon reached to coneon-
trato the business us much as possible
nt several of the prominent packing
centers. This would , of course , neces
sitate the shutting down of houses in
centers not so well adapted and forcing
smaller concerns to the wall. But the
formation of a trust in the sense to con
trol absolutely the pork packing busi
ness of the country ia out of the quas- "

The relations between the United States
and Samoa are not ns wpll known as they
should bo. The kingdom of Samoa Is com
posed of that group of Islands in the Pacific
which was formerly known ns Navigator * '
Islands , the cljjqf ono bolrig Tutttlla , which
has an excellent harbor called Prtngo Paugo
by the Samoans , In I3t2 tlio chiefs of Tu
tu II a requested the United States through
Commodore Meat to assume the protectorate
over this island a d harbor , wriich the United
States consented > ode , anil scat tin agent to
confer with thoc ! lefs of all the islands nnd
show them the Necessity of extending-
jirotectorato over the whole group. This
was In 133. ? Hut the Polynesian natives ,
with the frivolity and chnniroablcnoss of
their rnco had In tha meantime determined
to elect a king , mid the special agent of the
United States brrnmo his pritno minister. It
ia quite clean that the American nation can
not insist upon n protectorate which the
Samoans iloslro to abrogate. The Ocrmuns
have stepped in. and liavo assumed tlio pro
tectorate , but they nro a conquerlm ? people
which we an- not , and will not br. Some
very silly attempts have been made to defend -
fend Secretary Bayard , who hits blundered
as usual , for ho llko nil southerners is always
ngog for foreign conquest , ami the nation will
not hoar of thorn. The Dominican republic
Is eager for n United Stntcs protectorate , but
we have persistently rcfiHJu. That indeed
should be n mo-a vnluabla ncquisltion , but
wo do not want lo enlarge our border. Wo
have no ground of complaint against the Ger
mans , who have treated Americans in Samoa
with moro than courtesy , with real friendli
ness , and it Is out of the power of any south
ern dMungo ( uo to imikoiiny political capital
out of Samoa.
To the average American reader the ono
great port of Japan Is Yokohama , but thcro
is another port which lias become more or
less fnmllinr , and tlmt Is Kobe , from which
various shipments of coal liavo been mude to
San Francisco during the recent coal famine.
An American Journal published in Japan
the Japan Herald has been studying the
statistics of the two portsj ami lias come to
the conclusion that Kobe will bo In the
" future the great port of the Flowery King-
"dom. In ten years its foreign trade has
grown moro than 100 per cent , while tlio
foreign trade of Yokohama 1ms only grown
CO per cent , Hut tlio comparisons for the
last year are still more striking , for the total
trade of Yokohama for eight months of ISS3
Is about two-thirds the amount for the whole
year of 183" , showing no gains , whilst that
of Kobe for the same period Is greater than
the total for the whole year of Is3 , showing
a gam in a single year of ! KI per cent. Kobu
has already diverted from Yokohama much
of the yarn trade , and Is beginning to secure
some of the silk business. If , in addition ,
there should bo developed atrufUc : between
Tncoimi nud Kobe of coal and petroleum ,
Kobe furnishing the 1'ucllic slops with coal
and Tacoma furnishing Japan with oil from
the wells of Wyoming , Kobe would at once
far outstrip Yokohama , insplteof its vicinity
to the capital , Toklo. Kobe Is , so to speak ,
the port for the great cities of Osaka and
Kioto , andicoimnauds the trade of central
Japan , so that it is well situated for the
petroleum business.

Signer Lnnciani who has boon for years
the director of excavations at Homo for the
Italian government and the city authorities ,
is a profound archicologist , and therefore Ills
book entitled "Ancient Homo , " has been re
ceived by the Italians with great applause.
It is an account of his labors , explaining
fully and clearly.tho importance of the re
sults , some of w'fiic"h were wholly unlooUed
for. Hitherto nothing has been really found
prior to the time nt which Sorvius Tullius ,
the first of of the Etruscan kings of Home is
supposed to have lived. Such of the nrchnio
fortifications as have been unearthed from
time to time huvo been ascribed to him ,
though "perhaps he never existed , lor it is ad
mitted that the earlier books of Livy.nnd par
ticularly everything relating- the Etruscan
dynasty iu Homei-uro all to be regarded with
the utmost suspicion. Signor Lancinni has
discovered a neAtah5'ucol ' ° Slcal stratum , to
tally unknown DCf9ri an4.antedating all the
monuments nscribedto , Servlus Tullius. Tins
is n necropolis or cemetery , from which liavo
been taken some ii.OOO Urchnic specimens m
bronze , nmbor , stone and terra cotta. Aa
this bronze is made not of copper and tin ,
but of coppar , lead , zinc and antimony , it is
certain that it was of Etruscan manufacture ,
since the secret of making hard bronze , and
more particularly bronze with n cutting edge
was unknown to every nation save the pre
historic Phoenicians who sold cutlery of this
kind to.tuo Egyptians of Memphis.

During the present week the blockade es
tablished by the English and German na
tions along the coast of Zanzibar goes into
force. This , of course , Is aimed nt the Bel
gian nnd Portuguese trailers who have been
supplying the coast people with arms and re
ceiving slaves in payment. Of these prac
tices , there is now no doubt whatever. The
position of the German government is
laughably mixed. A liberal in the rcichstag
declared emphatically that he was opposed
to negro slavery , but that ho would oppose
all measures for putting down slavery in
Central Africa until slavery is abolished
along the coast and under the very shadmv
of the Gorman flag. When questioned as to
his meaning , ho declared that lie had information
mation with regard to the German coloniats
near the coast which reflected disgrace upon
the Gorman nation , if true. Ho cred
ibly informed thnt the coloniats reduced
their hired servants to n condition of abject
slavery , chaining them nt nlght-tlmo to prevent -
vent them from escaping or from joining fa
the revolt against the Germans. It seems
that this vllo inhumanity wa the- cause of
the outbreak which ha ° resulted in the total
destruction of German property m the differ
ent stations and in the ports aioim the In
dian oooan. Tlio two fortified harbors of
Minoiiguni and Tunghl wore abandoned by
the Germans and have since been burned by
the natives , and the whole country is dis
turbed. Tlio English bishop of Equatorial
Africa has ofllcially recommended thai all
English missionaries bo withdrawn , which
looks as If the potentate of Ugunda had
roully Joined hands with the maliJi's suc
* .
The English nro In a peck of trouble ever
the situation In Epypt. Thcro is now no
longer any doubt that the Mahdl has done
something to the Nile which 1ms essentially
lowered its stream , so that not only has there
boon no inundation , but the great irrigating
ditches liavo remained dry. Sir Samuel
Hakcr is of opinion that the great tributary ,
Atbara , which rlsos In Western'Abyssinia ,
has been turned. Ho.says that it could easily
bo done , anil that tljo government at Khar
toum knows enough 'to do it , and has In the
Soudanoso abundance of strong arms that
would accomplish anything ho ordered.
Other travelers nt Eastern Africa support
Sir Samuel Hakpr-'t hypothesis , and ono
assorts that the probable point where the du-
iloctlon has beoii1 ; inudo is near Kassala ,
which city comnmuils the roads to Suuklm
nnd to Mussowah. Imagines that it has
been turned into the Rod Sea near Musso-
wah , which has been given up by the Ital
ians to the Abyailuiunu. This would bo
looked upon by the Abysslnlatis ns an act of
great friendliness , and it would liavo a ten
dency to bring about a perfect understand
ing botwucn the Mahdl and the Negun , who
would in future work ; together ns true allies.
Truly the English have madu a mess of it by
dethroning IsmalU Ktiedivo , for Egypt is
nluioat doomed , since it was thu alluvium of
the Atbara that was the fertilising clement
in the yearly inundations. Take the Atbara
away from the Nile , and food Is taken away
from Egypt. This comas of the interference
of money kings in state mutters.
In spite of tlio fact , that If Germany seizes
Luxemburg , and thcu Holland , upon the
death of tbo old Icing now dying by inches at
Lee ; and Hussla at the same time attacks
Austria , having made all necessary disposi
tions for the onset ; in spite of the undenia
ble fact that under euch circumstances the
self-Interest ot Franco and England prompts
them to combine together to put a stop to
the ambition of Germany , it is clear that the
two countries are drifting late something
more than coldness lute positive aversion.
The great London dallies do not hesitate to
affirm that the republic is doomed , and aotns
of thorn suggest that Franco , clso , is doomed
umlor any form of government. Tlior is no
doubt that France is practically bankrupt ,
nnd that unfortunate country exemplifies the
utter falsity of a system which allow * wealth
to become concentrated In n few hands. If

Island of Formosa Is in revolt it is probable
that there will bo a still further retrench
ment. The Princess Kang Sing who ia the
future empress Is probably not so vcxiul
about the mutter ns nn American girl would
bo umlor the same circumstances , for Chl-
iioso wives do not consider their lot to bo a

n hundred years for the last rebellion was in
178S. The island has never been thorouchly
conquered by the Chinese , nnd the eastern

On this occasion it i.s the Chinese element in
the island , which has revolted uiuler the

if they should bo assisted under the rose by

They are short of coal in Hutto City and
Helena , In western Montana , for reasons
which linvo not yet been satisfactorily explained -
plained , but which possibly nro connected
with the doslro of the Union Pacific to make
money by sending coal from Hock Springs
and Evanston to San Francisco during the
recent coal famine. And in addition to this
thcro is in Uutto City a want of woodfor the
local sources of supply have been exhausted.
Two of the mines may liavo to suspend for
want of f uol , nnd the Montana Central rail
road is being petitioned daily to bring wood
from other quarters , until coal comes. Noth
ing can bettor illustrate the paramount ne
cessity of not allowing n railroad which is a
common carrier to enter Into other business
and the sooner this is inudo law the butter ,
not only for Montana but for Iho whole of
the United States. Thcro Is such a law in
Pennsylvania , but what is wanted is a
