IT now transpires that the Sixth ward
republican club had nothing to do olll-

evening to discuss the new postotlico
location. Mr. Kelsey , the secretary of
the club , said to-day that ho or the
president had no knowledge of the
mooting , and that they declined to beheld

ing fact makes It tnoro evident that the

The municipal elections hold in the
etato last Tuesday , furnish strong proof
of the growth of high license pcnll-
monts among the people. Returns from
about forty cities and towns , where Iho
issue was equavoly rondo between license
and no license , show that only six pro
nounced for prohibition. Of this insig
nificant number , four had prohibition
in fo-co for years past , and two llrod of
license. Out of the remaining thirty-
four , six had tried prohibition last
year , and declared for license this yonr.
In two towns , whoso tnisrcprosontnllvos
In the legislature assisted in precipi
tating submission on the state , the
voters almost unanimously declared for
license as a rcbuko to treachery.
These figures are full of significance.
While not sufficiently complete to war
rant n close analysis of public fooling
throughout the state , they indicate that
the drift of opinion is strongly In favor
of license and regulation. Last year
the question was put to a vote In over
sixty communities , and forty-seven ren
dered a verdict ngntnst prohibition.
Nine of the towns which had tried It
the previous yonr , returned to license ,
while only three discarded license for
The high license towns and cities
represent the intelligence , wealth ,
population , enterprise nnd business
activity of the stato. They nro the
vital organs of commerce and trade ,
and furnish the life-blood of the com
monwealth. The assertion that they
are controlled by the liquor interest is
absurdly false. They clearly see the
abortive efforts ot surrounding states
to enforce prohibition , and
the disastrous results to the
prosperity of the people. The de
struction of millions of property with
out compensation , the increase in the
number of unemployed , the material re
duction of crop and properly values , and
the strifes which invariably follow the
attempt to enforce prohibition , nro
alike disastrous to town and country ,
without materially checking , the evil
of drink. Instead of license and regu
lation it is free whisky. To change
this condition means a burdensome in
crease in taxes without any compensat
The progressive townspeople of the
state by their votes affirm the beneficial
results of high license. They prefer a
system of regulation and restraint which
limits the traffic , to tearing down the

HENRI' M. STANLEY.
A story of adventure in real life , moro
thrilling than any which over emanated
from the brain of any- writer of fiction ,
i& presented in the letter just received
from Henry M. Stanley and cjibled from
London to TIIU BEE , It is the first au
thentic news which has been received
from the great African explorer since
ho left the outskirts of civilization and
plunged into the heart of the Dark Con
tinent in search of Emin Pasha.
The letter in itself is a remarkable
production. Its graphic description of
the trials and miseries of 0tho march ,
the losses by death and desertion , the
bold defense against assaults by savage
foes , all go to show the heroic stuff of
which the leader of the expedition is
made. But added to these heroic quali
ties , Henry M. Stanley possesses perse
verance , a dogged determination not to
allow his plans to bo overthrown oven
when fate seems against him. The joy
nud hope which filled the explorer
upon reaching the long-sought Emin
was moro than counterbalanced by the
disheartening news of the terrific
wreck ( if the rear column on which he
was depending for reinforcements.
No wonder he was discouraged. But
in spite of it all , ho returned to his
work moro than over determined to
accomplish the object of his expedition.
And the last lines of his letter would
indicate that ho is bound to win.
The region traversed by Stanley , of
which ho gives just enough description
to awaken a desire for more , will make
a material and most intorestinf addi
tion to the knowledge already possessed
regarding Africa. Curiosity will bo
excited to learn moro of the vast forest
in which the explorer and his band
wandered for ono hundred and sixty
days , and which covers an area greater
than half a dozen states of the size of
Nebraska. A description of the now
tribes ho encountered , all speaking u
distinct language , will also bo road with
a keen interest , as , In short , will all the
details of this most remarkable journey ,
occupying fourteen months and filled
with experiences only to bo hud in such
a land. The success of Stanley places
him at the head of the list of African
explorers , if there was over any ques
tion before respoctlng his right , to that
position , and the whole * otviliseu world
will accord 'him the praise ho has so
A GROUND von COWLAIXT.
The rattle and hog growers of west
ern Iowa find a profitable market for
their stock at South Omaha and in
variably favor shipping to Omaha in
preference to Chicago. The railroads ,
however , persist in discouraging this
trade by neglecting to run regular stock
trains to the Missouri rlvor from inter
ior points of Iowa.
The reason of this is plain. It is to
their advantage to carry live stock to
Chicago and benefit by the long haul.
In consequence obstacles of all kinds
are thrown in the way of shippers , nnd
cattle which would bo sent to Omaha
are diverted to Chicago. This is a dis
crimination to the detriment ot the
Iowa farmoru as well as the stock buyers
und packing houses at this point , Defi
nite action must bo taktin b'y the In
terests involved to romcdy this matter.
The remonstrances to the railroads
hnvo so far proven of llttlo avail. They
hare repeatedly promised to glvo these
shippers to Omaha Improved facilities
but the discrimination if anything has
boon aggravated , Patience has ceased
to bo a vlrtuo , and permanent relief
can be expected only from a deter
mination to bring these railroads to
It behooves the farmers and cuttle
growers of western Iowa to unlto in an
appeal to their sttita board of trans
portation for redress. It should bo
brought lolho attention of this railroad
commission that the roads centering in
Chicago divert live stock to that city.
Omaha is not the only sufferer from
this discrimination. Lincoln nnd Ne
braska City in this state , Oltu'mwa ,
Cedar Rapids , Sioux City and other
porlc packing towns in Iowa nro crip
pled in their operations owing to the
limited territory from which they can
draw their cnttlo and hog supplies. It
should bo Iho privilege of thu farmers
and stock growers of Iowa to ship to
that market which offers the best in
ducements , nnd for that reason they
nro justified In asking through their
state board of transportation for rea
sonable transportation facilities to the
Omaha is entering on a season of un
common activity In all branches. Pub
lic works are bolng pushed as rapidly
nspossible , nnd private enterprise keeps
pnco with the general forward move
ment , l root of this Is found in now
buildings planned nnd under way in
every section of the city. Homo and
foroigncapltal Is going into business
blocks and homos , and greater confi
dence prevails in business circles than
at any time in the history of the city.
The energy displayed by the street
car companies is nn evidence of the un
shaken confidence ot homo capital in the
future of Omaha. The now consolidated
company , closely pressed by the motor ,
proposes to smash the building record
this year. The plans outlined cover
Sixteenth from Florence to the southern
limits of the city , Tenth and Eleventh
streets , a branch of the cable line to
the park , and a line to South Omaha on
Twentieth or Twenty-fourth streets.
The motor people propose to extend
south of the railroads to ttio city limits ,
nnd make a complete circuit of the
north from Sixteenth street to Lowe
Thc&o extensions will not only prove
beneficial in the expenditures of vast
sums of money , but they will give
suburban residents ample menus of
transit to and from the business dis
trict. They will give nn Impetus to
homo building , and inspire investors
with confidence. Within a year
or two at most , sections of
the city now almost inac
cessible , will bo readily reached by
street cars , and settlement nnd build
ing oncouragea by reason of nmplo
transit facilities. These extensions are
especially important to the working-
classes who can avoid the exactions of
landlords and bocuro homes of their
own at moderate cost in the suburbs.
In every direction there are substan
tial evidences of growth and prosperity.
The gradual increase in the real estate
transactions , the splendid weekly rec
ord of bank clearings , the activity in
the building line shown by the permits
issued , and the expansion of business
in all lines insure a year of remarkable
progress for the people of this city.
THE TRUST MANIA.
European governments have been
called upon to consider the perplexing
problem presented in the modern form
of monopoly known as the trust. Both
in Great Britain aud Germany the
trust mania has reached a vigorous de
velopment , and the governments have
been seriously considering whether it
shall bo allowed to take its course or
measures bo instituted to checic it. In
England some of the members of the
government have been reported as op
posed to taking any action against the
trusts , regarding them in sorao what the
same light as Mr. Carnegie and a few
others in this country do , that is , as un
natural , creations which cannot long
survive , and which it will bo wiser to
leave to the operation of conditions be
lieved to be certain to bring about their
destruction. Public sentiment , how
ever , does not acquiesce in this view.
It is vigorously opposed to this form of
monopoly , and the people understand
that , as a matter of fact , trusts
do continue to live , both in
Europe and in the United States ,
and so far as appears , to enjoy
tv high degree of prosperity. The
salt trust has nourished in England for
years , and the greatest trust in this
country shows no signs of decay after
an existence of many years , during
which it has made collossal fortunes for
everybody connected with it. It is , of
course , to bo expected that some of those
combinations will go to pieces. The
disastrous failure of the great copper
syndicate is proof of this possibility.
Other combinations that shall pursue u
like policy will doubtless moot a similar
fate. But exceptional instances of the
failure of trusts do not warrant the con
clusion that there are weaknesses In
these combinations generally which
Insure their ultimate downfall. The
toleration of this form of monopoly can
not bo justified upon any such
hypothesis. Being admittedly an evil
and a very dangerous one , it cannot
safely bo allowed to work itself out , but
must bo removed by firm and vigorous
It is to bo deplored that so little has
been accomplished in this country for
the removal of this evil , and it may bo
hoped that the European governments
which are now considering it will sot us
a needed example in summary action
for the suppression of trusts.
If the governments of Great Britain
und Germany adopt strong measures for
checking the growth of monopolistic
combinations , this country , which
should uo foremost in protecting the
people against such combinations , can
certainly do so. The serious character
of the situation resulting from the act
ive duvolopmout of the trust mania is
bolng widely realized. It is observed
that many largo branches of business
are being thrown into confusion and
uncertainty , that the monopolies are
embarrassing and chocking trade , und
that they aro-having an unfavorable in-
lluoneo on commercial confidence ,
ThcKO conditions must inevitably bo *
come moro serious with the growth of
the monopolies , and the wise suggestion
has been made that it is time the banks
of the country assumed u different atti
tude regarding those combinations. If
the financial power of the country re-
fubed to aid the monopolies their exist
ence would bo brief , and there is every
rcnson why the custodians of capital und
the conservator / ) ! credit should with
hold support from a system which
threatens such "ft revolution In com
merce as could Hdt fall to produce most
IT is too common a practice with the
railroads of Nebraska to incorporate
branch lines , which nro not built , for
the purpose of holding the right of way
through countius'nnd ' intimidating com-
potiUon , This'lias resulted in injury
to localities and 'lins boon detrimental
to the development of Iho state. The
stand taken by the people of Illtohcook
county to compel the incorporators of
ono of these patter roads to build or to
forfeit their franchise is of moro than
local Interest. The citizens of Hitch
cock county have appealed to the attor
ney general for redress , and it Is highly
probable that they will push their de
mands Into the cotirls. Attorney General -
oral Lcoso Is in full sympathy with the
movement. He h & given the railroads
of the state to understand that
projected lines must bo built
and operated within a reasonable
lime. The laws of the state never con
templated giving roads on paper valua
ble rights nnd franchises. The attorney
general assumes this view and proposes
to lake such action as will dissolve the
corporation. This will bo nn oye-oponor
to the Union Pacific , Burlington nnd
other railroads in the stato. If forced
to an issue the courts will define the
rights of the people in demanding the
construction of projected lines withi'n a
reasonable time. For that reason an
action in the supreme court on the
Hitchcock county ease would bo ono
greatly to bo desired in order to deter
mine this question for all lime.
U Is self-exiled , and for a
time will address the French people
from the safe refuge at Brussels. His
fleeing from a prosecution , doubtless de
served , whatever may bo thought of
the wisdom of the proceeding , will not
improve the standing of this persistent
trouble-breeder in the opinion of the
world , and ought to lose him thousands
of friends in Franco. The French people
plo , however , are quite ns likely to regard -
gard Boulangor's running away with
favor as to see it in its true light as
simply a cowardly retreat. His mani
festo is an effort to impress the popular
mind with the idea that ho is the
victim of an arbitrary act by men pre
determined to convict him , and his
friends in Paris will labor Industriously
at this time , t His self-exile will bo
given all the dramatic force possible ,
and hispen , or tpat of Rochefort , will
doubtless be kept busy issuing mani
festos proclaiming his patriotism , his
love of liberty , and his devotion to the
welfare of the people. Meantime the
prosecution will go on , and it is not iin-
prbbablo that the1 result may bo to con
tinue Boulangor in exile. "At any rate
there is good reason to expect disclos
ures that will materially reduce his
SOME ton years ago there was a vig
orous prohibition crusade in Canada ,
and the dominion parliament was in
duced to enact a local option law au
thorizing counties and cities to decide
every three years for or against license.
Prof. Goldwin Smith states the result. In
the province of Ontario there are forty-
two counties and eleven cities , of which
twenty-eight counties and two cities
adopted a prohibitory law. Ten of the
counties have recently reconsidered
their vote , nnd in eighteen counties and
two cities a movement is on foot to re
store the license system. The prohibition
law is treated as a dead letter through
out the entire province , the experience
having been a repetition of that else
where with prohibition. It substituted
for the public and regular sale of liquors
a secret and uncontrollable traffic. The
business fell into the hands of irrespon
sible persons , and the moderate use of
liquors has boon replaced by secret
drunkenness , with all its demoralizing
results. In other parts of the dominion
prohibition has proved a dismal failure ,
and instead of promoting temperance
bus , according to Prof. Smith , brought
smuggling , perjury , secret intoxication
and systematic adulteration of liquors
in its train.-
Tin : banishment of Church from Da
kota , coupled , with prospective state
hood , promises to revolutionize the
democratic press. The few feeble
organs of bouubonism in the territory
nro rapidly drifting to republicans , the
conversions last week numbering three.
These changes wore necessary to keep
the owners out of the poor house. In a
few more months the defunct party will

of THE BES : An unusual area Is sown to
wheat in the northwestern counties of No
braska. Some has been sown nearly a month
cnrlier thnn usual. Much seed wheat is
brought in from the most northern latitudes
nnd is nn extra line quality , aud is sold nt

The ground is in flue condition for plowing
for oats , and not u few hnvo their oats sown.
The high price of flax seed $2 a bushel

that crop. Ono farmer in Cedar county pro

seventeen und one-hnlf bushels per aero last
season , which at present prices would yield
? 35 per acre.
