THE imported plumbers must have
boon favorably impressed with Omaha
hospitality. It is tv metropolitan weak
ness. The rivalry of the local frater
nity to entertain their eastern fjucsts
was a specimen of rare generosity.
They came , they saw , and were con
quered , and after "viewing the land
scape ) o'er , " were sent on their way
'rejoicing , with passage paid and a sur
plus in their pockets. Their bills were
not questioned.
STATISTICS of the past week's move
ment of hogs is commended to the seri
ous consideration of the managers of
the South Omaha market. Omaha is
the only city which records a reduction
compared with the same period last
year. This condition is not creditable
to the management. It shows that
there is something radically wrong , and
measures should bo adopted at once to
place the market on a level with its
competitors east and south.
TUB rains Unit have prevailed during
the past few days throughout the north
west removed the dangers that were
threatening growing crops from the
prolonged absence of rain , and reports
from Minnesota and Dakota represent n
great improvement in the conditions
find prospect. Nebraska was also suffer
ing from want of moisture , but there is
no further cause of complaint , the rain
fall of the past forty-eight hours having
extended throughout the state and boon
Bulllcient to supply all the molsturo immediately -
mediately required.
PUUSUANT to a resolution of the Illi.
nois legislature , the pcnlto'ntiary
authorities of that state h.ive submitted
reports as to the feasibility of manufac
turing twine in the prisons. They
Hhow that it can bo do'no , and the coal
of manufacture will not exceed one and
ono-halt cent par pound. This is a
novel expedient for attnoKlng the twin *
tnmt , and while it is not expected thai
anything will bo done by the legislature
ture nt the present session , ponlton
tlary-mailo twine may become an 1111
nois product in the not fur future. Tlu
farmers of that stuto generally ani
heartily approve the plan.
As AVAS to bo expected the report o
the intpcctor appointed tooxnminn lut <
the agricultural departments of thi
schools and colleges receiving govern
ment aid is far from being encouraging
With few exceptions the colleges of tin
various states to which the govornmon
has contributed viiluablo land grunts fo
the purpose of teaching farmer's sou
the principles of agriculture , havafalloi
far short of their duties. They huv
drifted away from their original design
They fall to educate for the farms , am
their tendency Is to discourage youni
men from the pursuit of agriculture , b
their moagro facilities and lack of in
torcat in the study of agriculture. Th
attention of Secretary Husk has hoe
attracted to this abuse of the bounty c
the government. It is more than likel
that the new secretary of agriculture wi
force these institutions to comply mot
strictly with their- obligations to tli
government , and make the iigrlcuHur ;
colleges something bettor than a so
berth for supornnuated politicians.
The business men ot the east nro
manifesting nn oven stronger interest
than these of the west in the question
ot curtailing , or shutting off altogether ,
the competition of Canadian with
American railroads. This subject Is
now being investigated by u senate com-
mlttoo , of which Senator Cullom U
chairman , and the expressions ot opin
ion by the mercantile communities are
therefore tlmoly. Ono of those ha9 re
cently come from the board of trade ot
Portland , Maine , which passed a reso
lution protesting against the enactment
ot any legislation "which will deprive
our citizens of the facilities .for trans
portation of brpnd-stuffs and manufac
tures now offered by our great com
mercial highways through Canadannd
between the Atlantic seaboard and the
west. " It also protests against any
amendment of existing laws for the
purpose ot throwing obstacles In the
way of such transportation , and against
the withdrawal of the privilege of
carrying merchandise of the United
Stales in bond through Canada , as now
practiced , and against any action which
will tend to obstruct or destroy compe
tition in the transportation of
such merchandise , thereby build
ing up monopolies to the
detriment of the cities nnd commercial
interests now receiving the benefits of
free and unobstructed transportation to
and from the west over Canadian rail
It is not at all questionable that this
view will bo very generally acquiesced
in by the producers and shippers of the
west , and that they will join hands with
the mercantile and manufacturing in
terests of the cast in resisting any at
tempt by legislation or govern mental
action to do away with Canadian rail
road competition. There is no patriotIsm -
Ism in the question. It is a purely
practical matter , and as such involves
an annual saving in the cot of trans
portation to the people of the east and
wcst.amountlng to a vast sum which
they are not willing to sacrifice in the
interest of a few American roads that
are largely owned by foreign capital.
As to requiring the foreign corpora
tions which do business In the United
States to conform to our laws , and sub
mit to the same regulations that are
imposed upon our own roads , such a
policy ap'poars to bo very generally re
garded as being just and neces
sary. It would obviously be a
great mistake to permit alien
corporations to enter our territory and
carry on their business free from any of
the restrictive regulations to which
American railroads must submit , but it
does not appear that tlio enforcement of
this policy need involve any serious in
terference with the competition which
is claimed to bo so bcnoiicial to the pro
ducers and consumers of tha country.
So far as the senate committee has
proceeded with its investigation , it has
obtained little encouragement for the
plan of cutting olt the Canadian compe
tition , while the opinions given to the
secretary of the treasury regarding the
dutiable character of Canadian-built
cars used in the transportation ot mer
chandise between points in Canada and
the "United States were uniformly in
opposition to tl&a proposed duty. It was
said by the representatives ot American
roads who expressed their views to the
secretary that cars built in Canada
have been admitted free ot duty for
twenty years , and that any change in
practice would ro'sult in great damage
to domestic interests. It is qulto probable -
able that the secretary of the treasury
will obtain other and different opinions ,
but it is hardly to bo supposed that ho
will adopt the policy of subjoctipg Cana
dian-built cars to a duty. The whole
question is of immediate and far-reach
ing importance , and the conclusions of
the senate committee will bo awaited
with great and general interest.
The advocates of coramorcial union
with Canada were not given uny en
couragement by the parliament which
adjourned last wook. Early in the ses
sion the loader of the opposition to the
protective , system made a vigorous as
sault upon the policy , but nil efforts to
secure uny modification of it ended in a
complete failure. The fact was clearly
( li&closod that the Canadian manufac
turers fear oven a mild form of reciproc
ity , nnd thnt they are always ready to
obey a note of alarm sounded by Pre
mier Maudonald. The opposition to the
government is strong : , nnd its loaders
are able and aggressive. Tlio minis
terial party lost some of its strength ,
ita majority in parliament having boon
reduced. Rut it was still ample to
carry through every measure it desired
nnd to keep intact the policy that stands
as barrier against commercial union
or any form of trade reciprocity with
tlio United States.
How long the now dominant party
can rotaiu power may depend -
pond somewhat upon the lifetime
of Sir John A. Mucdpimld , who
appears to bo n strong and capable
leader. Mr. ErustusViman , who is
ono of the most nrdant and hopeful ad
vocates of commercial union , said be
fore the semite committee In Now York
that Canada cannot stay as she is , that
Him must cither become an independ
ent republic or join with the United
Stales , "Tho hopes of a great party , '
said Mr. Wlimn , "rest entirely upon
ono old man. After the death of Sir
John Mncdonuld will comodeluge. " J3ui
this view may be too optimistic. Doubt'
less tlio loss of this great loader would
' very materially weaken Uio party in
power , but it must bo 'granted that that
r party reals upon principles and sontl
9 ments which appeal powerfully to the
1 majority of the Canadian people , and
which would continue in fprco without
the championship of Sir" John Mac-
1r donald. There is n feeling of national
1F pridij and independence among the
F Canadian people which was notinspirod
wholly by that veteran statesman
B though ho has perhaps done more thai :
(1f ( uny other to stimulate and strengthen
(1y > it. Tbo idea of commercial union will
y the Unltod States is repugnant to mos
of the people of Canada because il woul
necessitate u surrender , in some do
° . greo , of tlio commercial indepondonc
' of tlio Dominion , and because it i
thought to involve the possibility , however
over remote , of political uulou and th
complete domination of tlio weaker by
luo stronger power. These nnd other
objections to nny such radical ohnngo
In the relations ot Canada with the
United States , as has boon proposed ,
have boon repeatedly nnd vigorously
urged by Canadian statesmen , and it Is
not to bo doubled that they arc so firm
ly rooted in the popular mind as not to
bo easily or speedily romovod. A fair
nnd equitable arrangement for trade-
reciprocity between tlio two countries
would , in all probability , bo to the ad
vantage ot both , but the outlook for ef
fecting such nn arrangement can not nt
present bo regarded as flattering.
\Vo do not propose to take part in the
controversy over the city hall plans ,
which is mainly carried on by parties
who made the lighten the Myers plans
and delayed the construction ot the nlty
hall throe years. The Myers plans
wore good enough , nnd It the building
had boon erected with reasonable dili
gence in compliance therewith , Omaha
would now have all her city ofllclals
located In a substantial and fire proof
Now tliat the Myers plans have boon
abandoned , wo want to see the now
plans adopted with the least
possible jangle , nnd wo hope
to see work on the building begun
within the next sfxty days. The short
est out with this end in view will com
mend itself to all citizens not directly
interested in the competition between
architects and builders.
There is nothing to bo gained by a
perpetual wrangle over plans. What
ttie mayor and council should do is to
adopt a plan which a majority of the
council doom the most excellent. This
choice should bo made impartially with
the solo purpose of giving Omaha a
publicbulldlngin harmony with the sur
roundings , commodious and thoroughly
fireproof. No time should bo lost by
the council in ratifying its choice and
inviting bids from competent and re
sponsible bidders. The location of the
city hall has boon settled , the people
have given the council authority to
construct an elegant building , and have
voted them authority to issue the bonds
necessary for its erection. The man
date of the people should bo carried out
without needless delay. There has boon
time enough wasted already , and our
citizens have a right to expect that all
further filibustering shall cease.
A COMHITTISIS representing the
American forestry congress has just
laid before President Ilarrison a me
morial urging him to exert his ef
forts in-the enactment of laws to pre
serve the timber on the public lands.
The spoliation of our forests by timber
thieves has become a scandal in the
land office. Millions of acres of timber
lands on the public domain have baen
despoiled by corporations , great and
small , without oven the payment to the
government of the small amount nec
essary to obtain the foe simple of the
land. Other valuable timber lands
have boon sold at prices that would no
cover the cost of surveying them , and
which were abandoned us worthless the
moment the purchasers stripped thorn'
of their wealth. The indilloronco of
the govormont to stop this wholesale
robbery was taken advantage of time
and again. In the timber regions the
public conscience has boon greatly de
moralized thereby and when prosecu
tion of the offenders was finally at
tempted by the land olllco it was almost
impossible to secure conviction. The
commissioners of the public land ofllco
'have repeatedly exposed these frauds
and called loudly upon congress to
change the system of land laws and
management which permitted this un
blushing theft. Their appeals , however -
over , have failed to bring relief , and it
behooves President Harrison to add his
voice to theirs in calling upon congress
to reform this great abuse.
TITK board of health has taken a rad
ical now departure. An order has been
issued to the board of public works
directing that body to compel all own
ers of houses on lots adjacent to the
drainage sewers to connect their prom
ises therewith. The object the board
of health has in view is to improve the
sanitary condition of the city by doing
away with surface drainage. If this
change can bo brought about , it will
doubtless materially reduce the death-
rate , cut down the doctors' bills , and
prove a bonanza to tlio plumbers. But
there muy be several obstacles to over
come. In the first place , wo
doubt whether the board of health
nas any authority under existing ordi
nances and charter provisions to
issue orders to the board of public
works. .In tiio next place' , it is doubt
ful whether the board of public works
could compel property owners to build
sewer connections. It is possible * that
such an order might bo sustained as a
police nnd health regulation , but the
chances are that it would bo resisted
through the courts.
RKOAUDIXO the statement that the
chief obstacle in the way of manufac
turing tin plate in this country is the
difficulty of separating the tin from the
mica , which has not yet boon over
come , the Kapld City Journal says it is
erroneous. It states that the school of
mines at that place has practically and
successfully demonstrated that the sep
aration may not only bo made , but that
it may bo made by a comparatively sim
ple and comparatively inexpensive pro
cess. It is partly to determine the
practicability of separating the tin and
inicit that the Chicago capitalists who
contemplate establishing the tin plate
manufacture are going to the Black
Hills , and if they find this difficulty al
ready solved it may bo only a vorj
Hhort time until the manufacture of tin
pinto in this country is started on u
large bculo. .
IT ia still fresh in mind how certain
prominent business men ot Buffalo ,
connected with the Standard oil trust ,
wore convicted of conspiring to ruin a
local oil company which hold out
against that combination. The climax ,
after two yours of litigation , in the
case has now boon reached. The men
convicted were 'lot off with a simple
fine of two hundred and fifty a oil an
o each , while the persecuted company
was forced iut6 brnnkruptoy through
the machinations ol the Standard oil
trust. The ovldonco In the case showed
that these 'raoh ' were guilty ol nn at
tempt to set fir.p to the local company's
works , nnd tho'.light fine imposed reads
Ilk a Irnvoslv oi justice. The grip of
the Standard oil octopus paralyzes
oven the arm of the law.
Tnosre enthusiasts who imaglno that
a navy can bo built in a day , are res
pectfully dialed to the difficulties at
tending the construction of armored
ships by our government. An appro
priation was made throe years ngo for
the building of the Texas , and nt this
date the hull ot the great iron vessel
has hardly boon begun. The con
struction , however , has not been un-
nocossarlly delayed. The selection ot
a plan by competition among naval
designers , the preparation of the dry
docks for her reception , the awarding
ot the contract for her machinery , and
lastly , the provisions made for her
armament , have consumed time. It is
highly probable that several years more
must elapse before the Texas is ready
to go into active service.

that the assault was pm-ticlarly aggravating.

Tbis morning a rather peculiar case of
grand larceny was on trinl , which resulted
In u verdict against the defendant , ono 1'otor
Cline , the viilno of the proportv bolng llxod
by them nt ? TO. In March , 1833. two young
men named Qunlman came from Llololt ,
Wis. , to grow up with Lincoln , Tluiy each
had a vallso containing their clothing , ot-
cotorns. to the value of ? 90 ; they had n room
nt the Washington hotel , nnd from this room
the vnlisos were taken by persons unknown.
On information Detective Pound went to the
house of Mr. Houston , the man recently
found dead on the Uurllngton tracks ,
and found the vallsos In his cellar
with somn clothing hi thorn. This de
fendant wus suspected , but Oillccr
Pound was not able to looato him
until n short time ago , when ho
tooit him into custody in Omaha , The de
fense was that Cline know nothing of the
stealing of the property. Ho had mot n man
named Brannnu and a stranger , each with a
valise in his hand , nnd nt the request of
Brminun lie had gone to the Houston house ,
whore Urunnan saiil ho wanted to leave their
valljcs. In the evening again ho went with
them , anil saw them tuko the valsos | out of

their clothing , and he followed them there ,
and saw them tearing a coat out of one of
the valises. That was all ho knew about the
matter. Ho got nouo of the property , and
did not know it was stolen. The Jury , however -
over , thought otherwise , and was found
guilty , but sentence was reserved.

Wns It Buried Alive ?
The workmen engaged in excavating for
paving in the alley between Ninth nnd
Tenth , on p and N streets , this nftornoon
unearthed the dead body of nn Infant , about
n foot from the walk ot the bagnio kept by
Lydla Stuart , on Soutn Ninth street. It was
badly decomposed , and the stench was so bad
tbat it was dumped into a wagon nnd carted
away as soon as possible. Two of the workmen -
men , who examined the body , arc of the
opinion that it was buried alive. The burial
of the body so near a disreputable dive leads
to the opinion that its mother is an inmatn of
tbo house. The discovery creates a great
deal of talk on the streets , nnd it is alto-
getner probable the matter will bo investi
Those Wayward Girls.
One of Sheriff Mcliuk's deputies succeeded
in overtaking the band of gypsies and the
two run-away girls , Hattie darn and
Francis Ponnlngton , last evening , six miles
eastof Hickman. The girls kicked vigor
ously against returning to the city , asserting
that they knew what they were doing , and
were responsible for their QWJI acts. Having
exhausted reason nnd p.itioiico , however , the
olllcor proceeded to take them into custody ,
and , during the melee that followed , the
gypsies mounted ponms they had hitched
near their camping rtlaco and made n run for
it. The girls , finding protests and strugcles
useless , got Into the deputy's "carryall , "
and were landed in the county Jail at a Into
hour , last night , and they were still there at
2 o'clock to-day. The wugon , team and
camping outfit of the gypsies , deserted when
they mounted their ponies , can bo had at the

warning to American ten drinkers sounded
by United States Consul Crowoll , who is sta
tioned ut Amoy , Chlnn , has caused consider
able excitement among the trndo hi this city.
Yesterday n number of dealers and Import
ers said that the very poorest tea raised in
China is foisted upon the American public.
Tons of tea loaves are consumed inthls | coun
try thnt are no better than hay , and fre
quently not ns good , nnd an Immense quan
tity of the stuff that Is used Tor tea is posi
tively injurious on account of the poisonous
materials used in coloring It.
Russell & Co. , who nro perhaps the largest
purchasers of tea in China , and who have an
ofllco Iu Wall street , in a circular recently
sent out from their Amoy house to their cor
respondents , confirm fully what the consul
says. The total production of this grade of
tea this year was something Hlco three mil
lion pounds , every ounce of which llnds Its
way into the teapots of the people of the
United States and n largo quantity of the
crop spoken of by Consul Crowell was dis
posed of by auction yesterday at from \yt \
to 15 cents a pounds. Representatives of the
largest importing house in the trade which
handles fully onc-sovonth of the entire lea
that comes to the country said that n lot of
Amoy Oolong bought in Airfoy for their nc
count was declared by experts to be too poor
to Mass custom house inspection , nnd was re
sold. The purchasers took chances , shipped
to tlio United States , and It was admitted
and is now on .the market , and is worthless
