There being no lo'ngor a quo&tioi
that Mr. Blalno will bo secretary estate
state under the next administration
future negotiations between the govern
inentof the Dnltod States and the gov
eminent of Gcrminy regarding tlv
Snmonn issue will bo carried on undo
the direction of Blnino and Hlsmarck
It is therefore n matter of interest t
recall the views of the former regard
ing American policy with respect to tin
islands of the Pacific. A confcronci
having already boon agreed upon bo
twuon the two governments , in contln
nation of that hold in Washington it
1887 , to meet in Berlin , that arrange
ment will doubtless bo carried out b ;
the now Kdmlnistration , to which tht
present administration has deferred tin
duty of appointing a representative o
this government. That rcprosontntivi
will receive instructions from Mr
lUaine , and there can be no doubt tha
they will bo in part to llrmly redis
every cITort or scheme of Germany ti
obtain control of the Samoan islands.
The grounder this belief is
found in the position of Mr. Blniiu
when ho was secretary of stat <
in the Garllcld administration rehitiv *
to the Hawaiian islands. He then main
taincd that the policy of the Unitoi
States with respect to the Pncilli
ocean was essentially the same as the
policy that had been pursued with rev
spcct to the Atlantic , and has occn re
ported recently to have expressed him
self regarding the Samoan question ir
terms showing that ho has not changed
from his attitude of eight years ago
Assuming that General Harrison is in
sympathy with this view , and there is
no reason to doubt it , Bismarck will
tlnd in the next American secretary ol
state a determined opponent of any effort
fort Germany may maio to interfere
with the independence and authority ol
Meanwhile indications of Bismarck' !
purpose to severely punish the Samoanf
for what they have done in defense ol
their territory againstGcrmnn invasion ,
and perhaps incidentally to strengthen
German power in the islands , are nol
wanting. The tone of the seml-oHlcinl
German organs , and the intelligence
received from other sources , permit little -
tlo doubt that the Gorman government
contemplates , if it has not alreadj
taken measures to carry out summarj
action in dealing with the Samoans ,
ostensibly by way of punishment , but
really to gain a more extended and se
cure foothold. The killing of a few
marines is not an affair about whicli
Bismarck would bo deeply concerned on
the score of vengeance alone , but in
this case it can bo made o convenient
pretext for putting into ollect a policy
pretty plainly defined by the whole
course of Germany in Samoa.
It will bo the task of the next secre
tary of state to thwart this policy , and
the Samoan issue will dpubtloss bo the
first international question to which the
next administration will address its at
tention. There need be no apprehen
sion that the interests and rights of the
United States will not bo wisely and
llrmly maintained.
It has been , remarked that" Mr.
William Springer's temperament is as
elastic as his political conscience. Hav
ing become somewhat identified with
the business of creating nc'w stntos , by
virtue of his position ns chairman of
the house committee on territories , and
knowing that his opportunity for
further usefulness in this line is about
at an end , Mr. Springer appears to have
determined to improve the last chance
to associate his name with measures to
admit all the territories except Utah ,
and it is somewhat surprising that ho
did not include that territory in his bill
introduced a few days ago providing
for the admission next year of Arizona ,
Idaho and Wyoming ,
If it was not a political reason and
that is the most potent of all reasons
with Mr. Springer that led him to
introduce this indefensible measure , it
is impossible to conceive upon what
grounds ho could justify it. It is not
possible that any one of these territories
will have a sufficient population a year
hence to entitle it to statehood , while as
to Ariona and Idaho , it is not
probable that they will bo olk'iblo live
years from now. These two territories
have ti present population of between
fifty and sixty thousand each , Ari-/ona
being a little in the lead , or about one-
third the ratio of voprosontation in con-
grohs , and their growth in slow. Under
the most favorable conditions that can
bo thought probable , neitho'1 of thorn is
likely to have to exceed seventy-five
thousand population at the next census ,
and the apportionment for roprosontn-
tion under that census will doubtless bo
not less than two hundred thousand.
Wyoming presents a somewhat.bettor
case , but unless she should have n most
remarkable and unexpected increase
her population at the next census will
not exceed one hundred and twenty
thousand , or eighty thousand less than
the probable new ratio of roprosonta-
tion. The absurdity of proposing to
create states of these territories a year
hence is obvious.
The lesson presented by Nevada is
one that is pretty certain to dolor con
gress from any future blunder In mak
ing stales out of territories that have
not sufficient population to entitle
them to statohooil , and are lackIng -
Ing in the conditions to at-
truut population. If this Josson bo
heeded the next generation may find
Arizona still a territory , for hop coa
litions are not very much superior to
those of Nevada , and it is not likely
Lluit Idaho can present a fair claim to
statehood within the next ton years.
The outlook for Wyoming is more
promising , and her admission before
the close of Harrison's administration
is not unlikely. Of course nothing will
to done by the present congress with
Mr. Springer's bill , or with that of the
N'ow Mexico dolugato for the admission
) f that territory with its mongrel popu-
ation , and thu next congress can bo
lufoly trusted not to revive them.
TIIK British governr ont has ap-
lolnted Sir Julian Pauncofoot to suo-
iooil Sackvll fl-Ww-t as minister to the
Jnitcd States.- When .it was stilted
otne tlmo ago Unit Pnuncnfpat
Hkoly to bo appointed it was also sal <
that the understood intention of th
government was adversely commentoi
on in English diplomatic circles , owini
to the fact that Sir Julian had alwny
been merely an attache of the Brltisl
forcigtrofllcc , with no actual oxporlonci
in diplomacy , though possessing a vor ;
thorough knowledge of intornatiotm
law. Objection was also mido on tin
ground that his appointment would b
an innovation on the system o
appointing foreign ministers , sine
it would promote him ovc
men older and higher in th
diplomatic service. In view of all thl
the selection of Pauncofoot cannot b <
regarded as altogether complimentary
to the United States , though this is i
inaltor about which we can afford to bi
entirely indUTercnt. If thu now ropro
scntativonf Her Majesty's government
is a gentleman and will attend strictly
to his own business , ho is cort-iin to hi
more acceptable than his morally blcm
ishcd and indiscreet predecessor.
TIIK Omaha police force appears tob
divided into silent factions concerning
the pension bill now before the logisla
turo. Tno members fail to npprociaU
and applaud the generous efforts of th
commission to husband n surplus for oh'i
age , and provide means to alleviate tin
wounds contracted in line of duty , Ni
objection would bo imulo If the city i > ro
vided the fund , but "tho llncst" canno
comprehend the benevolent features ol
n system for which they furnish tin
means , nor the unselfish efforts of tin
mon who will handle the funds. Disci'
plino and a desire to hold the job arc
gradually smothering the opposition.
SHNATOII LTAMS' bill to divide this
city Into three districts and limit the
number of justices of the peace tt
two from each district , or in all si )
justices , should receive the active sup
port of every member of the Douglai
delegation. Six justices are ample foi
nil legitimate litigation. By reduc
ing the number the income of eacl
will be largo enough to secure t <
our citizens the services of lawyers wh <
enjoy the respect and confidence of tlu
community. As it is now the justiet
mills are so numerous as to innko it un
profitable for men of standing , unless
they are so generally and favorably
known as to draw patronage from al
parts of the city.
Tin : imported lung-tester is liable tc
overdo the thing in this salubrious cli'
mate when ho tries to inflate the circu
lation balloon. A sudden gain of thous
ands of daily subscribers in midwinter
when there is no campaign to fight , nc
sensational event to create an undue
demand for papers , and no material in
crease in population or unusual uctivit.v
in any direction , is a dead giveaway.
Nobody with a thimbleful of brains has
any faith in such startling gains , and at
best the only rational conclusion is that
the publishers have generously scat
tered several thousand papers a day on
probation whore they expect now sub
TIIK employment of a stenographer
lor the city clerk's office is additional
proof that reform and economy are the
wedded watchwords of the council. The
now position fills n long felt want. The
over burdened city clerk and careworn
deputies will bo relieved of the onerous
duties which confined them within
doors for throe or four hours each day.
Tt will enable them to woo the bloom
of youth with outdoor life , and culti
vate a profound indifference to the
wants of inquisitive visitors. The
short hand method of reaching tlu city
treasury will also be improved and sim
plified by the new clerk.
TIIK destruction of the now reduction
works at Dead wood by lire is a serious
blow to the mining interests of the
Black Hills. The plant had boon in
operation but a few months , and was
constructed of the most inflammable
material. The lesson of the lire is a
rostly ono , but it cannot fall of geol re
sults , The work will doubtless bo re
constructed on a broa lor and more so-
uuro foundation , and of material
reasonably fire-proof.
Tun bill requiring a throe-fifths voce
to change the location of a county seat
is a good ono and should bo passed by
the legislature. County seat fights
have done inoro than any other agoney
to retard the growth and settlement of
the western half of the state. Ani
mosities have boon engendered between
communities that years can scarcely
wlpo out. Any mnnsuro tending to reduce -
duce and control this evil is entitled to
hearty support.
Tun plumbers and gaslltters are mak
ing an early and systematic attack on
the pavements of the city. The same
recklessness and indifference to the
rights of taxpayers are displayed , and
the board of public works apparently
pays no more attention to it than in
years past. Unless there is some vitality
injected into the board , the result will
bo a great increase in the number of
sunken tranches and ruined pavements ,

The complete success of the French rcpub

As a combination of opportunists nnd
cuta the ministry will doubtless be nblo tc
cirry : with it a majority of both these wings
of the republican party In the chamber.
Uut should it fnil in the conllict ol
faction the republic would nppaiently bo

head of the now government , is an able mini ,
nnd us a moderate republican Is obnoxious to
the extreme radicals , especially bv reason of
his share in overthrown ! ! : tlio F.oiuet min
istry. Uul the radicals will probablysmother
their animosityinl the prudent consideration
that the now ministry is all that stands be
tween them and , the dissolution of the cham
ber. In Its complete organization the new
French cabinet means pa.ico with other na
tions and an one'rgetio resistance to Boulnn-
gor and nil other enemies of the republic.
The successful npcomplishmant of this pa

The outcome of the queer colony founding
expedition of Atchlnofl lo Abyssinia shows
Iho wisdom of the St. Petersburg authori
ties in disclaiming at the start all rospjnsi-
billly for it. Perhaps , however , had they
done so loss omph itically the remedy ap
plied by the French for the adventurer's
invasion of their territory on the Hed sea
might linvo bedn less vigorous. Bombard
ment is rather un oxtreuia moi-iuro to resort
to for the ndnionltion of an intruder ; but as
the Uussian government absolutely washed
its hands of the affair , no doubt it was very
glad to SCG the expedition como to griff. The
Cossack adventurer is a fanatic who , with
his followers , seems to have been carried
away with the idea of bringing the ecclesi
astical establishment of ICing John over into
the Greek church , to which it is allied.
Coupled with this had bo-'n the desire lo
found a colony. Had AtcliluolT chosen lo
comply with the French roguiattoiM , no
' '
doubt his sctllonicnt nt Sagallo wo'u'ld have
been sanctioned , or at loasl not Interfunid
with. But that would hava boon to sscriflcQ
his own ambitious aspirations. Perhaps ho
thought that the Frencn woul.l not dnro to
lira on the Kmslnn fl it : which ho raised , or
that if tlioy did ho would find vindicators ut
St. Petersburg. But the old-tuna bacrcd-
ness of the national ensign is In these prac
tical dnvb subject lo considerations of the
right to raise it. Ku.ssin , at all events , hud
not the slightest Intention of allowing her
friendship for Franca to bo Jeoparded by

Prince Alexander of Battonborff has evi-
denlly made up his mind lliut the royalty

through the intrigues of the Russian court
ho was crowded oft the Bulgarian tbrouo ,
which Is now filled by a mild mannered
young gentlomun , dl&tlnguUhcd for his
ImndBomo patrimony and his lasto in Jew
elry. As un ox-Uiiig , Alexander sllll had a

The departure of J,4$0 Irish emigrants
'rum Queenstown for the Argentina Hepub-
lo shows .that the supply of Immigrants for
lint country may not hereafter bo drawn
ixcluslvcly from the shores of thu Modltcr-
ancan. The republic's Immigration policy
s very liberal. The Argentine congress at
ts last session voted that the i-ost of passage
rod Europe should bo advanced to 50,000
igriculiurUtf and artisans , The number of
tnmlgrnnts received la 18ST was 137-JW ,
.gainst OJ , 110 la 18SO , and in .eleven months
of 1JS3 the number was 133,707. The goi

tlon ngcnts nbroad to give frco passage to al
who desire to como to that country , and it 1
provided that the Immigrants shrill bo fci
nnd lodged for fifteen dnys nftor their at

It has been currently rumored nt the capl-
01 nml on tlie streets of Lincoln that Han
som's valued policy bill , so bitlorly fought by
ho insurance lobby , and which recently
> asscd both houses of the general assembly ,
vould bo vetoed by the governor. The
rumors hnvo been so emphatic that Tint Bun
rcpiesontativo sought to know the truth
about the matter to.duy , und finds that they
uro without shadow of foundation. It is
clearly apparent thnt these stones huvo been
put in circulation by enemies or the gov
ernor without regard for truth or
decency. TUB governor has not
expressed himself on the question ,
for or against the bill , to any ono , but ho
pointedly stales lliut he will not bo uninind
fill of the majority vole Iho bill received
when it wus put upon ita Until pnssago ,
wken the Uuio comes for his .signature wbieli
shall make Iho bill a law. The governor's
friends uro Indignant over the unkind
thrusts he hus been mibjccted to , and llic.v
have not been slow to express themselves
regarding the matter. It Is enough to know
that the vnlued policy bill will not bo
grossly mutilated when it passes from tha
governor's hands.
