THIS military , nnvnl and ci'ic dom-
otistnUioii in Now York City waH in
every respect worthy of the pi-cat occa
sion which called it forth.
Tan czar has found threatening let
ters on hig table. There is evidently a
loud call for civil service reform in the
departments of his household.
A CHAPLAIN of the legislative assem
bly o ? Arizona has returned his salary

FIIIST it was Minneapolis to inaug

IT is highly significant that the pro
hibition nmcnutnont recently submitted
to the voters of Massachusetts is the
first constitutional amendment over re
jected in that state.

for the immediate printing in pamphlet

TUB rapid extension of railroads in
the west is aptly illustrated in the
number of miles of railroad constructed
and in operation in Montana. Three
trans-continental lines drain that
territory , with an aggregate of
nearly two thousand miles , and' ' every
county sent but throe has railroad con
nections with those trunk lines. Yet is said to lack sufficient rail
road facilities.
THKIIK has not boon a single case
where law-breaking railroad olllcials
have boon punished under the penalties
Imposed by the intor-stato law. This ,
too , in the face of the fact that Judge
Cooley , of the commission , has given
duo warning that the time for leniency
had passed and penalties would bo in
flicted. It romaids toQbo seen whether
the commission will carry out its
throat , now that evidence is conclusive
that certain railroads in Chicago nro
puilty of gross infractions.
IT 13 now definitely announced that
the Council Bluffs and Omaha Clmutau-
ciua assembly will open Its first session
Juno 18 and close July 4 , on the beauti
ful grounds now being laid out in Coun
cil Bluffs. An attractive and instructive
programme is being prepared for the
cession , nnd the prospects are that the
Benson will bo a success in every par
ticular. It behooves the people of
Western Iowa and Eastern Nebraska to
lend their aid to this enterprise. It is
to them that the managers of the pro-
.jcct look for encouragement , and plans
r ehould bo laid- now to attend the first
Cession to in onljr encourage the
Chuutiiuquu and foster its growth.
THIS golden gate special between
Omaha and Sun Pranciscoit would uoein ,
fs to bo supplanted by a now overland
pasbongor train which is to nmUo fast
time between ocean nnd ocean. It i ?
proposed that a train leaving San Fran-
. .clseo slum arrive at Omaha in throe
days , in Chicago in throe days arid
nineteen hours , and in New York in
four days nnd twenty-one hours. Such
& fust transcontinental service lias not
licou attempted heretofore , and its suc
cess will bo watched with no little In
terest in railroad el roles. But while an
overland fast train may at first bo more
in the nature of an experiment , the era
pf slow trains and improper accommo
dations is past. The Union Pacific has
pivou its a sample of luxurious
traveling , and it may bo depended upon
that the public will insist upon the best
nil latest improved train service be
tween Omaha anil San FrnncUco'In the
The speech of Hon. Chauncoy M.
Dopow in Now York , yesterday , was
eminently worthy of the great occasion.
It was truly the greatest effort of his
life. Clonr-cilt , eloquent and historical ,
it places him in the front rank of Amer
ican orators. Delivered under the
shadow of the statue of Washington ,
nnd surrounded by an eager multitude-
of patriotic people , ho fulfilled the ex
pectations of his hearers and readers
nnd con firmed the wisdom of his selec
The occasion did not domnnd grand
flights of oratory. The simple story of
the struggles of the founders of the
republic , without ndornmont , is in it
self , the grandest chapter in human
history. Ills the beacon of liberty ,
illuminating the paths of the
oppressed In all lands , nnd emphasizing
the axiom that "ho who would bo free
must strike the blow. " Mr. Dopow
traced in eloquent words the mighty ,
el niggle of the infant colonies against
Great Britain , the darkness nnd despair
which at times enveloped the conti
nentals , the hardships nnd privations
endured that freedom might live , and
the sacrifices cheerfully made that the
now world might enjoy the blessings of
a government by and for the people. It
is a story a century old , but can not bo
told too often. In the wild , nervous
rush of modern life wo arc apt to forgot
the men and moans by which America
achieved its peerless position among
the nations of the earth , and overlook
the patriotic devotion of those who
threw llfo and property around the
infant nation. Their valor is a model ,
their lives nn inspiration for the people
of to-day. In character nnd deeds they
will live unrivalled In the history of the
world. Surrounding the grand central
figure of Washington , they form a-
picture of unselfish devotion , of generous -
erous sacrifice , of valor in Hold and
forum * and of civil and religious lib
erty , which will forever remain the
admiration of mankind.
Reports proceeding from Washington
regarding an extra session of congress ,
to bo called probably in October , con
tinue to bo made , though there Is noth
ing more definite upon which to base
them than the general proposition that
a special session will bo necessary In
order to prevent any delay in organiz
ing the next congress , which , owing to
the small republican majority nnd the
number of , candidates for the speaker-
ship may bo a good deal of a
struggle. It is felt to bo desira
ble that the organization of the
house , HO far nt least as the
election of a speaker is concerned ,
ought to bo effected in advance of the
regular session , and doubtless this is
the correct view. With the house fully
organized before the meeting in De
cember , it would bo in a position , when
the regular session begun , to imme
diately take hold of the economical
questions which it will bo peculiarly
the duty of the next congressjto deter
mine , nnd which it is desirable for
all interests shall bo settle' ! as
speedily ns possible. The adminis
tration has not thus far found the
surplus especially perplexing. It is
dealing with the matter intelligently ,
and to the advantage both of the treas
ury and the public interests , but it is
quite possible that it may encounter ob
stacles in the future , and hence the im
portance of congressional action that
will proscribe n , regular and safe course.
There is reason to believe that Presi
dent Harrison fully appreciates the de
mands of the situation , and that
ho acquiesces in the view of
Senator Allison and other leading re
publicans regarding the expediency of
calling an extra session at least in Octo
ber. There does not appear to bo any
danger to the finances of the country
between now and then resulting from
nn accumulation of the surplus , as it
aupears to bo the purpose of the admin
istration to handle the financial affairs
of the government so that the interests
of business shall not suffer , but at the
same time there is an evident desire
to avoid all unnecessary delay on the
part of the next congress in rearranging
ing the fiscal system on a basis that
will be permanent at least during the
present administration. A more or
less prolonged discussion will bo neces
sary to accomplish this , and hence the
expediency of gaining time for this
arid other matters of practical legisla
tion by calling nn extra session , in
which the house will at least bo enabled
to complete Us organization.
Brick pavement is rapidly coming
into use in a number of western cities.
Several streets in Lincoln and Beatrice
were paved with this material last year
and the results have boon satisfactory ,
although the tralllo * on streets thus
paved was not sulllciont to thoroughly
test 10 durability of the material.
The great objection to brick is tno
fact that the article used in western
.cities will chip al the edges under
heavy tralllo. Once brolcon the mater
ial is soon ground into duo powder ,
which is wafted about by the winds in
disagreeable clouds. On the ether
hand the vitrified lira brick used in a
score of eastern cities has riuccossfully
proved its utility and durability. Hy
draulic testa made at Pittsburg and
Cincinnati show that vitrified brick
resib'tcd a pressure of KG.OOO pound ) ] ,
while similar cubes of granite from
different quarries was crushed nt pres
sures ranging from 17,000 to . .0,000
pounds. A two-inch square cube of
seasoned oak was crushed with a pres
sure of lii.OOl ) pounds.
The Ohio Yulley .l/miii/Kcfio'fr vigor
ously afouils and rofutns the assertions
of Mr. John Grant , recently published
in Til ic Iticic that brick 'pavement was
a failure in all cities where
it had been used , Mr. Grant quoted
Washington , San Francisco , Gnlcsburg ,
111. , SCanosvlllo and Stoubonvlllo , O. ,
'nnd Lincoln , Nob. , ns cities where brick
pavement had prayed a lumontablo fail
ure. The Jfyaii/icc/wtr assorts that
there was not a yard nor u brick , of the
vitrified clay brick , laid in either of
the * > o cities , and olulmtj that Grant
grossly mUsuvtod the facts in rojgml to.
Zunouville , Stoubenvillo and Younge-
town. Zanesvillo uses vitrified fire
brick and is Incrcrfblug her urea largely
each year. Her peonlo nro entirely
satisfied with it and will have no othor.
In Youngstown , n largo section of brick
pavement was torn up bocnuso the
material wns soft nn a porous nnd vitri
fied llro brick substituted , Steubon-
villo has experimented with brick pave
ment for five years nnd the results have
been BO satisfactory that the entire city
will bo paved with that material.
There Is no reason to doubt that
vltrllled fire brick Is one of the coming
paving materials. The fncb that the
boards of public works of Buffalo ,
Cleveland , PittsburgTolcdonndPhila
delphia have recommended it is strong
proof of its durability. Philadelphia
will lay 6,000,000 , fire brick in the
streets this year. The material is
cheaper In those cities than grnnlto or
cobble stones , makes an oven surface ,
nnd relieves t.ho residents of the deaf
ening rattle of trafilc on hard , uneven
The property owners on several
streets in Omaha nro now investigating
the advantages of brink for pavement ,
and , in all probability , some sections of.
the city will bo paved with that ma
terial this year. It is important , there
fore , that the best material should bo
selected. If brick of the required hard
ness can bo produced at homo nt reason
able cost , it would bo to the interest of
the city to encourage and patronize the
industry. Any material which will
overcome the mania for wooden blocks
would bo a deliverance from decay and
dry rot which false economy has spread
over miles of the best streets in the
city. TnnBKK docs not want to bo
understood as recommending vitrified
brick for pavements , but considers it
worthy of an experiment.
The Union Pacific has acted wisely in
deciding to have a local passenger
train between Columbus and Omaha ,
with connection nt Valley with the
Omaha & Republican Valley traina
from the Stromsburg district , If it is
their intention to also have a train
from Beatrice , reaching hero in the
forenoon , it will make the situation
still better. In this connection , if they
will run their freight and live stock
trains on the Omaha & Republican
Valley road , so they will arrive hero
early in the mornincr , in time for the
daily South Omaha market , and have
them leave hero'at night , It will give
the business men In the country a
chance to como in nnd sell their grain ,
produce , cattle nnd hogs in the forenoon
and buy dry goodssalt , lumberandother
necessary articles during the day , with
plenty of time to reach their homes at
night. The freight trains leaving hero
in the evening will carry their pur
chases , in time to reach them early
the next morning eaily enough
to sell them during the day. This is of
the greatest importance to our friends
in the country , especially on Saturdays ,
when the farmers "come to town" to do
their weekly trading. * Some complaint
might arise about the mails , but this is
of no consequence when they run
against the laws of commerce.
The local passenger train referred to ,
will bo convenient for ladies to do their
shopping , and others seeking the amuse
ments of the city , such as the matinees ,
base ball games , celebrations , etc. To
accommodate these the return trip to
Columbus , Stromsburg , and ether places
should bo hold sufficiently Into to enable
these throngs to reach the trains.
If it ib not the intention to extend the
train to Grand Island , by arranging the
trains on the Norfolk , Albion , and
Cedar Rapids branches at Columbus ,
and the branch lines at Grand Island ,
so they will reach Columbus and Grand
Island in the forenoon and return at
night , it will enable those two flourish
ing cities to become important trade and
travel centers for the surrounding dis
tricts , with Omaha as the principal base
of supplies.
But under all circumstances the live
stock trains on tlioso branches should
bo run at convenient hours for the South
Omaha markets. In a short time this
will require an extension of the train
service to a convenient connection with
Omaha , if it is not immediately neces
On the Fremont & Elkhorn Valley
railroad the run can bo conveniently
made from Hustings , Norfolk , Oakdnlo ,
via Albion , Geneva and Crolghton. So
all of these trains can roach Omaha by
noon , picking up their passengers on
the way , and distributing them at night
on the return trip. As it is , the Lincoln
& Norfolk train arrangements are ex
cellent , reaching Omaha at 10:15 : a. in.
and returning at 6:15 : p. m.
The local train service on the St.
Paul & Omaha road is no accommoda
tion at all beyond Blair. There ousrht
to boa train from Sioux City , Hnrting-
ton , Randolph and ether places Into
Omaha every morning not later than 11
o'clock , leaving hero on the return trip
about 0 p. m.
When this is done nnd the trains
made permanent , with the people in di
rect communication with their princi
pal home market at Omaha , tiie inter
vening country will settle up rapidly
and the agitation for building n rival
road will cease.
On the Missouri Pacific the train ser
vice is worse than useless. There is no
reason why it should not bo nn good at
Omaha us it is at Atchison , Lonvon-
worth and Kansas City. Wo fail to eeo
why these cities should bo built up at
the oxpcnso of Omaha. If the manage-
in out will put on a train from Falls City ,
with Lincoln and Nebraska City con
nections , reaching Omaha in the fore
noon , nnd returning at night , with
freight and live stock trains at con
venient hours , the Missouri Pacific will
find n bag of gold jit the end of ouch
run , nnd they will need no spectacles to
IIml it.
Thosu local trains are the foundation
of the prosperity of Omaha and the
west. Just so fast as circumstances per
mit they'ought to be extended in every
direction , and by all moans , when the
most convenient hour is selected , they
should bo run without chungo from year
to year.
Tins Sioux City Joimi'il struggles la
boriously through a column of asser
tions nnd contradictions to provu that
the thrifty hamlet of northwestern Iowa
holds the Icoy to the business of north
Nubrtukk , and that it la useless for
Omaha to claim any business relation
with that s6ciWn. This very generous
nnd unselfish advice comes from a source
which evinces alarm lit the revival of
the Omnlm "iiinkton railroad echomo.
Whllo SlouxXIHjfiis wasting breath in a.
vain effort /uinlsh a market fjn1 the
products of the tl rlvfng Missouri rlvor
counties , OnlajnJ3 ( turning their pork
nnd boot nml ornjinlo cash , and supply-
Incr the people vltli manufactured neces
saries nnd luxnclci of life. And this
city will conUuuftto supply nlno-tnnths
of the business of that region. Even if
Omaha could bo shut out of northeast
Nebraska tfyV'ivny possible com-
iqnallon , the enterprising people
ple [ of Norfolk would drive
Sioux City out of the Hold. The former
possesses the capital , the energy and
the grit to pot there' , while Sioux City's
enterprise is limited to n mad desire to
consume Covlngton whisky. There is
no danger that the latter will make
much progress In Nebraska. Aslongns
the barrels nnd kegs nro Mowing on the
west banks of the river , she will tarry
thuro and soak herself.
IT is a terrible story of disappoint
ments , hardships and Impositions which
Tim BKK'Jspecial correspondent graph
ically describes In Oklahoma. But that
is just what might have been expected.
When men go crazy over n wildcat
scheme'whether it bo in farm lands ,
mining enterprises , or town lots , there
nro tons of thousands of dupes who sac
rifice their nil to one individual , who
makes a stake on the venture. From
the first the Oklahoma movement was
badly managed. But , worse than this ,
the soil is unlit for agriculture , the cli *
mute Is bad , and the chances for an hon
est man to got a foothold among desper
adoes and land-grabbers is small indued *
All this was sot forth through the press
of the country. The leading papers
took pains to spread the news that Okln-
liomn was no land flowing with milk
and honey. The man who loft a com
fortable homo to take his chances in
that wilderness has , therefore , no one
but himself to blame for his foolhardi-
TIIK phcnominal growth and wealth
of Dakota in the last decade excite < s the
admiration of the country. The total
valuation of property in Dakota as
shown by the assessment roll for 1883
amounts to one hundred and sixty-one
millions , five hundred thousand dollars.
Four thousand , throe hundred miles of
railroad and ether property in the ter
ritory belongiKg"to the railroads with a
valuation of ov3r forty millions are not
assessed and arc not included in the
property valuation , since railroads are
taxed upon their gross earnings. But
taking the property valuation ns re
turned in the a ses ors' books , which is
about two-thirds' of its true value , it
would bo no exaggeration to estimate
the wealth of Dakota at a round three
hundred and twenty-live millions.
Tin : determiniltib'n of the Union Pa
cific to put'on additional daily local
trains between Omaha1 and Coiumbus
\Yill bo highly tuvnrpciato.d by tjio puo-
plc along th'o'rJad'ils f-ell as at Omaha.
There is cveryTdason. to believe that
the company wilf be encouraged by the
local trallic to extend this service at
least as as Grand Island.
This would enable the people along
the line fora distance of a hundred and
fifty miles west to como to Omaha ,
transact their business and return homo
the same day. The constantly growing
relations between the cities nnd the
metropolis of the state will soon make
such local accommodation trains an ab
solute necessity , and the example set by
the Union Pacific will bo followed by
all other roads cuntoiing at Omaha.
WHILK PennsylVanians wcrocngagod
in giving practical significance to Arbor
day , last week , the legislature seriously
discussed a , bill which , if it becomes a
law , will level the remaining pine and
hemlock forests of the state. The bill
proposes to place all streams not exceed
ing twenty miles in length in the cate
gory of navigable highways , for the
purpose of floating saw lojrs to the mills.
The destrue'tivo floods which have rav
aged the Allegheny valleys in the
past years Is a warning that should bo
heeded. If the destruction of forests is
not checked , the consequences will bo
serious , if not destructive , to the inter
ests of the people.
THE importance of Seattle and Tacoma -
coma us shipping points , duo to natural
advantages , has seriously nffcctol Port
land. A largo part of the crons of
Washington territory chat formerly
was shipped through Portland finds its
'way now through Tacoma and Seattle.
The railroads , moreover , bring the bulk
of the ores from the. , mines , tljo lumber
from the forests and the products of the
canneries to these enterprising .citie
in preference to Portland where they
are transferred to vessels and trans
ported to sea.
