Nebraska's now banking law goes
Into effect lo-dny. The measure was
carefully framed , and if faithfully en
forced It will secure to the state a solid
and sate banking flystom in which the
public can have ontlro confidence. The
necessity for such n law had become
urgent. The conditions under which
banking institutions were heretofore
enabled to organize and do business in
Nebraska offered nn opportunity for
dishonesty in this business which was
being largely taken advantage ot ,
nnd without such n law
as wo now have It would
have been a question of only a few
years when in almost every town ono
or moro insecure banks would have
been started to rob the people. Ne
braska's experience in unsound banking
1ms not been so serious ns that of some
other states , but the situation was grow
ing worse from year to year , and the
time had fully arrived for providing amore
moro secure system , and surrounding it
with such safeguards as would protect
the pcoplo against the distionnst and
unscrupulous practices so easy in bank
ing that is not adequately guarded.
But experience has shown that , the
most thorough and stringent banking
laws do not prevent fraud unless those
appointed to enforce them are thor
oughly honest nnd constantly vigilant.
Numberless cases of fraud under the
national law could bo cited , duo to the
neglect of duty , and doubtless in some
cases to the dishonesty also , ot the bank
examiners. Some ot these officials are
incompetent , and many of them perform
their duties in the most perfunctory
way , accepting as sufficient the state
ments of bank o Ulcers or their sub
ordinates. Some ot the most notable
failures of national banks have ocurrod
within n short time nftor the inspection
of the bank examiner , the failures
showing the institutions to have been
utterly rotten when the alleged exam
inations were mado. This experience
is referred to by way of urging the im
portance of appointing as bank exam
iners in this state only men who are
thoroughly competent and entirely
trustworthy. They should bo men hav
ing a practical knowledge of banking ,
should bo good accountants , and they
should bo of the highest character for
integrity. With such men to see that
the provisions of the law are properly
and fully compiled with there need
bo . no apprehension of danger
from the inlluonco ol bankers not in
good and solvent condition. The oper
ation of the now law should speedily
weed out the insecure banks , if any such
are in existence , and plnco banking in
Nebraska on a sound nnd secure basts.
Nenrly two months have elapsed since
Vico-Presidont Holcomb of the Union
Pacific , volunteered to assure- our citi
zens that tho" union depot project had
been matured and perfected and that a
proposition would bo made to the city
looking to the construction of a viaduct
upon Tenth street in connection with anew
now union depot. Later on Mr. Hol
comb gave it out that the preliminary
plans of the union depot had been
sent back to the architects with
orders to prepare detailed drawings
and specifications. Upon the comple
tion of these details a tangible proposi
tion was to bo submitted to the city
authorities which , if accepted and
ratified by the people , would bo fol
lowed at once by the building of the via
duct and depot.
Upon diligent inquiry nt the archi
tect's office it transpires that
nodefinite orders have as yet
been given for detailed plans and
specifications. This is a revelation.
It shows that the management under
Charles Francis Adams are pursuing the
same tactics that were practiced by
their predecessors.
For years the promised union depot
has been a delusion and a snare. Omaha
has already paid over six hundred
thousand dollars interest uppn the four
hundred and fifty thousand dollars in
bonds issued to the Union Pacific as a
bonus to secure the construction of a
joint railway bridge , and also a transfer
In addition to this , lands and lots to
the value of hundreds of thousands of
dollars have been donated to that road
by private citizens for right-of-way and
muohino-shop grounds. From four hun
dred to five hundred lots owned by the
Union Pacific within our city limits
have been exempted from local taxa
tion , and yet the managers of that road
have carried on the transfer of passen
gers and freight in this city *
in wretched old sheds undo'r
the plea of no money , while
such towns ns Cheyenne and Ogdun
have been provided with superb depots.
Why is Omaha treated in this step
motherly manner ? Why should the
largest city on the line of this trans
continental road , and tit its very gate
way , bo deprived ot facilities that have
boon accorded to a more railroad cross
ing like Valley Station ?
The attention republican papers give
to every public movement nnd utterance
of Mr. Cleveland is doing more than
any other ngonov or influence to keep
him prominent in the public mind ns
the possible candidate of his party in
1802. Ever since his retirement to pri-
vuto life the ardent friends of the ox-
president , and unquestionably ho has
ninny such , have lost no opportunity to
parade him before the public eye and
fix upon him the popular attention , all
undoubtedly wltn the hearty and cheer
ful concurrence of Mr. Cleveland. There
can bo no fault properly found
with this , It is a privilege which
the friends and udmlrom of the ox-
prcsldont have the unquestionable right
to exorcise to the full extent of their
pleasure. But republican newspapers
are not called upon to assist in holding'
Mr. Cleveland up to the popular view
by rlving ; to everything that emanates
front him an amount 'of consideration
out of all proportion to its importance.
Last Monday night a democratic club
In Now York City gave a banquet in
honor of Mr. Cleveland at which ho
made a speech. It was by no moans a
remarkable production , in foot a score
of democrats could bo named who could
make a much bettor address
without nn hour-for preparation , yet it
hns received from republican papers ns
Bortous discussion as if it were the utterance -
toranco of n statesman , possessing gen
uine merit and It Italy to make n lasting
Impression on the popular mind , whllo
tlio event is referred to as dositrncd to
keep Mr. Cleveland on the presidential
race course. This ia of course just what
the ox-president and Ills friends want.
Their hope lies in keeping the public
attention directed toward them , and
they understand that the greater
thom consideration tlioy can got
from republicans the bettor their
chances will bo of accomplishing
what they have In view. The danger
to Mr. Cleveland's political future is
in being ignored by the party that de
feated him , for so long ns that party
continues to manifest any regard for
him ns n political force ho can rally to
himself n vigorous democratic support.
Ho may prosper on ndversa criticism ,
and the ridicule and denunciation ot
his platitudes nnd false doctrines , but
tie must certainly lose ground from
neglect and iniHfTorenco. Democratic
partiality for Mr. Cleveland will bo
measured largely by the degree ot
consideration which republicans shall
con tin no to accord him.
Nobody doubts that Mr. Cleveland
desires to bo again a candidate for the
presidency , and it is not questionable
tlmt just now a majority ot the demo
cratic party expect him to bo. But the
fooling thnt ho should bo is by no means
unanimous. A prominent paper in the
south recently suggested tlmt the demo
cratic party would make a grave mis
take by taking its next presidential
candidate from Now XTork , urging thnt
it should seek its candidate in the west.
This view may become widely extended
within the next three years , Meanwhile -
while Mr. Cleveland should bo allowed
to enjoy the privilege of the private
r.iltxen to bo lot alone , however indus
triously ho and his friends may seek to
attract public attention.
RHODE IsrAND will follow in the
wako of Now Hampshire , Massachusetts
and Pennsylvania in submitting a pro
hibition amendment. Prohibition-has
been in vogue in the state for several
years , but it has merely intensified the
desire for its ropoal. The Into election
for members of the legislature resulted
in the election of a largo majority in
favor of rcsubinission. The legislature
meets next week , nnd both parties have
agreed to rush the bill through so as to
enable the voters to reach a decision
before adjournment. . The election will
probably bo held the last week in Juno ,
and there is every indication thnt the
result will bo the defeat of prohibition.
THE Connecticut legislature refused
to charter a railroad company to paral
lel an oxistincr lino. The opposition
claimed thnt there wore too many roads
for present business , but it bus si nee de
veloped that the members were re
warded with life passes. .
Public opinion in Great Britain regarding
questions of reform bus become such that it
will soon become necessary for parliament
to adopt measures in harmony with the evi
dent desire for progress. That party lead
ers bavo recognized the existence of such a
political condition is evident from Mr.
Chamberlain's recent suggestion ns to the
introduction of a land measure for Irclnuil ,
afthoufrh , even if tha house of commons
ahould agree upon such u quostiin , the
house of lords would undoubtedly reject it .
Nothing could moro forcibly illustrate the
aversion which the English people have
to radical changes than the equanim
ity with which they liavo so long
borne the existence of this obstructive cham
ber ; but the change in opinion which mani
fested itself in the house of commons , when
Mr. Labouchcre made his motion to abolish
the hereditary principle of the upper cham
ber , is most significant. Time was when
such a motion would have been obtained no
countenance from English politicians ; but on
this occasion it was supported by the whole
ofllcial leadership of the liberal party , aud
was beaten by only forty-one votes in n house
of 801. The tories who spoke against the
motion did so in uu apologetic tone , and with
the expression of a hope tlmt some way
might soon bo found by which the composi
tion and character of the house of lords
could be improved ; nnd , with the exception
ot Mr. Bulfour , who was taunted into suying
a few words , not a member of the KOV-
crnment broke the silence that reigned
on "the treasury bench during the de
bate. It is a sad commentary on the boasted
growth of liberalism in Great Britain during
the nineteenth century to recall the frequent
collisions between the two houses of parlia
ment on questions of simple justice and hu
manity. The progressive spirit of the ago ,
whenever It has made itself felt in the com
mons , bus never boon agreeable to the lords.
All other nets of injustice on the part of the
peers sink into insignificance , hbwovor ,
when compared with the many wrongs
which Ireland has suffered at .their hands.
Ever since' 1885 , when they interfered with
the just administration of Ireland under the
Melbourne government , and destroyed the
prospect of reconciling the Irish people to
the legislative union with England , they
have either rejected or mutilate d every
measure of Irish reform sent up to thorn.
When any reform was auoomplisjioj , its
value was cither largely impaired by their
amendments or so altered as to bo rendered
almost practically inomiratlvo. On their
shoulders lies n large share of the responsi
bility for the disordered stato.of Ireland ; ,
and the only hope Is that If they should
much longer continue their obstructive
course there will bo a popular agitation wlilo
and dcep'cnough to sweep tha house of lords
out of existence.

The visit of the ahull of Persia to Europe
in some respects has quite as much signifi
cance as that of King Humbert , of Italy , to
the Imperial city of Berlin. The successor
of Oyrus the Great , holds ono of the import
ant keys to the fur east , of which Russia Is
now very anxious to got possession. With
an outlet by the Persian gulf to the Paciiio
ocean tbo Russians would have a most ad
vantageous position in the future struggle
with England for the dominion of the oust-
ern world. In the rivalry between these
great powers thu shah fully appreciates hia
own importance. Ho must k'now , too , that
every utcptakun by Uussla toward the In-
dlan ocean is a mcnaco to the integrity of his
own dominions , Uut the oriental
voluptuary is perfectly willing to lut
tbu future take care of itself , BO
lotifr us hla own safety and repose shall re
main undisturbed. Such conferences as the
czar aud stuih have hold were not influenced
by any tonslJerutions except what may bo
personal to tlieuibelves. They have no
Wishes nor whims to consult but their own.
The shah , whosu locomotion is so free , munt
Imvon feeling of commiseration for his imper
ial host.who can not travel in any part of his
own dominions without encountering the im-
mlnen t danger ornssoBslnntlon. This dread
of conspirators JasWVk certain shadow over
the festivities Injftotfdr of the Persian king.
But in the fltiropo the shah will
broatno the air pf/ popular governments , In
which fear of ayilrfmlta assassins Is llttlo
known ; nnd If hG'snduld ' cross the Atlantic
ho would learn s jMhlngs about frco gov
ernment that Wqatern Europe can not teach
him. i'
The Fronch.oleSUcms take place in Octo
ber , nnd the fjq'vo'q'imont is nt the disad
vantage of havlup to conduct n dofonslvo
campaign. Whofti tlio last elections took
place the pcoplo Wc'r'ojso irritated ut the Ton-
quln expedition aiilj'al ' the growing cost ot
living thnt thojjycut down the republican
majorities very largely , and elected n lot of
monarchists ana Bonapartlsts with whom
they had no real sympathy. They cut off
their noses In order to spite the party ot
their choice. It was not a very logical pro
ceeding , bat pcoplo often net so in other
countries besides Franco. The lesson of the
election was \varn Ing to republican states
men to compose their differences , to curtail
useless expenses , mid to rednco taxes which
increased the cost of necessaries of
llfo. The lesson has not been heeded.
The chnmpor has wasted Its time in
idle discussions over theoretical cnics-
tlons of government nnd In personal contro
versies. Menuwhlio the army costs moro
than over , and the price of bread steadily
rises. It Is therefore possible that the
French pcoplo may administer another les
son to their leaders by defeating some of
them nt the polls. This Is the calculation of
Boulnngcr and other adventurers. Still ,
every year which rolls 'over without war
strengthens republicanism in Franco and In
creases the number of citizens who nru co-i-
soi'vutives by vlrtuo of their moans. The
exposition Is Itself a republican argument ,
nnd by refusing to give It official recognition
the monarchs of Europe have confirmed the
French people In their hostility to the mon
archical Institutions. The wlso moderation
revealed In the speeches of Sadl Carnet is
likely to have won over to the republican
side thnt class of the bourgooiso which refused -
fused to bo reconciled to the republic be
cause they feared it.

While the Italian king Is being dined nnd
wined nt Berlin , the Italian proplo are ap
pealing for closer relations with France.
Even Crispi himself , the Mazzlnl of modern
politics , is powerless to overcome the nntl-
Germnn feeling. The triple alliance has
injured the trade anil commerce of the Ital
ian people. The popular papers are out
spoken against It and the republican party ,
which is the stroncest political party of
modern Italy , is in favor of a Frenuh nlli-
auco. Is the triple alll.inco , then , doomed to
bo broken ? To these who know und have
studied Italian politics the question is difll-
cult to answer. The Inlluonco of the
court and the ministry is prcat. Tlio
power of the puoulo is not so strong as It
might well be The popular will , plainly
expressed , has qitcn been thwarted , and
may again bo parried liy the premier. The
people are lacking7 Jn'"that ' determined per-
sistenca and pressure which , with Anglo-
Saxon races , ineviiUbly brines about a vic
tory : a trait whieJi is vwell typified by such
men as Garrison ; oriGIadstono. This trait
the Italian racabdecldedly lacks , and If
Signer Crispi can irostpono any action on the
matter from time to time , the alliance may
remain secure. IlVon 'the other hand , the
matter is repeatedly1 j/ressed to a decisive
action , the triple'allian'ce ' , ono of the master
pieces of liismnnjli's diplomacy , may fall
quickly into ruin.'ltis , at least in danger , as"

The situation .Ju , continental Europe bo"-
coracs moro complicated us time passes , aud
the outcome is impossible to predict ; but
coi talnly thcro has been no indication that
any or the powers are roa'iy or evei prepar
ing to depart from the conservatism and
care with which they have thu j far avoided
words and actions that would make war In
evitable. There is evidence of a general
recognition of the fact that none can afford
to provolco the terrible struggle that has been
so long pending. Yet war scares aud sonsa-
tionul rumors , with their moro or less serious
effect on business and speculative sentiment ,
are to bo expected ut short intervals , und the
eommorcial nnd financial operations of tha
world will continue to bn influenced by the
belief that u war of unprecedented coat und
horror , although of short duration , must bo
tukoil Into account ns among the possibilities
that may bo realized at any timo. Ttio re
straining influences uro stronger , and the desire
sire to find some other solution of the com
plications is spreading ; but the danger still
exists , and there is us yet no sign of the war
clouds clearing away. VVhilo a year has wit
nessed so little chungo for the better iu this
situation , It has witnessed none of thu
changes for the worse that were doomed ul-
most inevitable.

The lost cause evidently Is still In a healthy
condition , no far as Sumtor , S. U. , Is con
cerned. Ono Anthony Wlilto delivered tha
address thcro on Decoration day. Hero is
what the Charleston News nnd Courier says
about It.
"Thoro was oo fawning upon the restored
union , nor vain regrets for the past , . Mr.
White took high ground , comparing our
struggle for right and liberty with the mom-
orublo contests running through ancient
nnd modern history. Sir. Wlilto urged
strongly the Importance ot reliable historic
accounts of the war , nnd called upon his
hearers to perform the sacred duty to the
memory of our 'fallen braves' of keeping
their examples prominently before the com-
hip generation. Mr. White coiitundcd that
our struggle had not been In vain , and thnt
the principles for which wo fought were Imperishable -
perishable nnd immortal. "
Pertiiips Mr. White labors under the Im
pression that this sort of talk is calculated to
inculcate a love for the union. Or , perhaps
ho bus never been reconstructed. Or , per
haps howovcr , the bloody shirt must not bo
waved , not up north , at least.

Many Capitalists Ready to Subscribe
to > Iic Project.
Mr. Chris Hnrtman was seen about the
now hotel proposition and scorned sanguine
that it would bo successful.
"Not long ago I received n letter from
some eastern capitalists , " ho said , "asking
if the inducements originally made would bo
open to a Boston syndicate If the latter
would iigreo to erect a million-dollar lire-
proof hotel. I scut back an answer that it
would. I have Been a number of the gentle
men who subscribed to the fund thnt was to
have been raised before , and all of whom I
have seen are willing to allow their names to
stand for the amount originally subscribed ,
while some of them said they would double
the amount. The gentlemen who nro Inter
ested in the project have been in Omaha , are
satisfied that the city has a great future , and
seem willing to put their money in the en
terprise. "
"Tho site } " he } repeated , "well , I do not
care to mention the exact site proposed , but
it Is on Fiirnam street , between Nineteenth
and TwcntyJfourth streets. They uro satis
fied that in live years that will bo practically
the center of the city. All the bank build
ings , the public buildings and other line
structures are on Fnrnam nfrcet. They
think there Is littla chanca for growth south ,
nnd they don't want to put a million-dollar
hotel up among the small buildings north.
They wont tbo locution on Furpnm , and will ,
if at ull , nut up the finest building on the
street. Of course , some of these projects
full , whllo others succeed , but just at present
the outloolc is very encouraging.

1029 P SIIIKBT , }
The "down-town worm" has llttlo idea
how Lincoln Is Improving on the outskirts.
Hut the ftict exists , just the sumo , thnt Lin
coln Is growing very rapidly. A drive
through Bait Lincoln , and on to the Wes-
Icynii university , will convince any ono tliat
Lincoln Is fast becoming a city ot houses , II
not of people , nnd It is reasonably certain
thnt , were the census taken to-day , the surprise -
priso would bo general ns to the number of
her inhabitants. Boomers of University
Place tire evidently bent on uniting the city
with the village at an early date. This is not
only possible , but probable. But llttlo more
than 1mlf a mlle of prairie , undottcd by evi
dences of habitation , now separates the t'.vo
places. It is well to note , also , that Bethany
Heights Is beginning to show evidences of
llfo und enterprise. A lumber yard has
boon established there , nnd two or
thrco now cottages have reared their
heads , nnd the legend "for rent"
will soon mark their doors conspic
uously. Work In the university moves apace ,
and the third story will soon bo up. Ono city
extending four miles to the cast and north
east is the word , nnd It seems as though a
fo\v short years would bring about this reali
zation. A prominent contractor and builder
says that over ono thousand dwelling houses
are now going up within the corporation of
the city proser , not considering the score or
more now well under wuv at University
Place , nnd that as many moro will bo built
and finished before the close of the season.
This statement may bo considered somewhat
overdrawn , but It will not bethought so after
a tour of the city. The fact is noteworthy ,
also , that the dwellings pom ? up in all parts
of the city are of the bolter class. There are
comparatively few of less than flvo rooms ,
and u largo number that nra palatial in a
wuv. The word boom does not lit the growth ,
nnd prosperity of Lincoln at this time. Real
ostuto is not changing hands with marvelous
rapidity. It seoma that owners are simply
improving what they have , and this work
promises to bo continuous for n long time to
come. Although the suburbs are booming ,
as much can hardly bo said of down town.
Puvliig on the streets nnd alloys Is going on
at a snail's pace. There Is no llfo to the
work , and it would seem that the contractors
propose to light it out on this line though it
takes ull summer.

Ilia No. 210 provides for the election of a dis
trict attorney in districts composed of coun

tion of the insertion of the provision for the

mation of the bills l.i precisely the same , aud
it is reasonably certain that they were drafted
by ono unu tho. same person. The only ex

American citizens of Now York , speaking of
tbo Samoan treaty , said ; "It would seem at
llrst sight that Germany had not obtained
the least benefit by the settlement , but , on
the whole , I think she has received all sao is
entitled to. Doubtless that is the Idea of a
majority of right-thinking Germans nnd Gor

fault found by mercantile people In Ham
burg and other seaport cities , where the
largest Samoan interests center , also among
a class which bollovcs Germany should
carry through everything it attempts.
right or wrong. But the masses will
be pleased to have the Samoan question defi
nitely settled , even with the loss of prestige.
"In America the Germans generally looked
upon the Samoan cose from on American
standpoint. 'I'boy could not see the justice
of wresting the island from the Samoans ,
nor interfering with the autonomy of that
little government. In the light of subse
quent events , it was very sad that the com
mission of 1S37 at Washington , did not make
the concession that now has boon made. The
failure there only resulted in loss of life ,
money and in humiliation in the find. I was
in Berlin when the present commission first
met. I was surprised to learn
from German sources how little
the Gorman commissioners expected
to insist on in the conference. It seemed as
if Bismarck was intending a complete back
down , something ho does not frequently do.
It scorns , however , , the Gorman chancellor
had become tired of the Samoan matter and
would bo glad to cot rid of it by any fair
concessions. Ho had been drawn into the
trouble against his judgment , and the affair
assumed a phase not contemplated by him at
any time. The battle between the Germans
nnd the Samoans was undoubtedly brought
about by the acts of the German consul , who
cither overstepped his powers or misinter
preted his instructions. The concessions
made by the Gorman government practical/ !
concede this much. "

WASHINGTON , May 31. Profiting by recent
events at Samoa , whan the treasure of tha
wrecked Trenton was recovered by means of
diving apparatus , the navy department has
determined to equip each of the naval vessels
with n complete diving apparatus. The state
department ofllcials absolutely refuse to dis
cuss the Samoan conference or Bohring sea
tangle. Of the former they admit matters
are m such shape as to warrant the expec
tation of the conclusion of the con.
forcnco , comparatively unimportant details -
tails only remaining to bo ad
justed. But upon the provisions
of the treaty , if n treaty has yet been drawn
up , they decline to talk. So far as can bo
learned there is no new phase in the Uchrlnff
sea matter. The president's proclamation
appears to hav closed the history of the
case , und it can not bo learned that tboro has
been any correspondence between the gov
ernments of the United States and Great
Britain on the subject.
