IT HAS como down to a point of vorac ity between the Kansas "City Paving company and the Union Pacific as to the price of delivering Colorado stone in Omaha. Now lot us have the truth in the matter. ALREADY the people of Seattle with true American pluck and enterprise are clearing away the debris preparatory to rebuilding the burnt district , and phoe- mx-liko the Queen city of Washington will rise from her ashes. IT is immaterial what influences brought about the opposition Ot the - Republican to cedar blocks ; its charges are strong and indisputable. Wooden pavement is an imposition on taxpayers and a monnco to health. " Is OUll educational system a failure ? Down in Lincoln they have discovered several prominnnt citizens totally ignor ant of their business affairs. ' * ! don't know" is the prevailing form of answer to impertinent council conundrums.- collapsed * 'Bank of Omaha" bears no more relation to the financial affairs of this city than a pawnshop does to its mercantile interests. Its demise did not create a ripple as largo as that produced by a pebble thrown into the Atlantic. THE broait-neck wooden aprons that look as if they had passed through a cyclone should bo repaired or removed. The city IB likely to have serious dam age suits sooner or later on its hands resulting from accidents to pedestrians if those cross-walks bo not attended to. THE building of largo additions to the packing house plants at South Omahais indicative of the success of the pork packing industry at this point. The time is not far distant when the extent and importance of these establishments will rival any in the country. "WHATEVER way the wind may blow , the board of public worka will hold onto the chock tor two thousand dollars deposited as evidence of good faith by tlio paving firm which has thrown up its contract. Omaha will permit no trilling on the part of contractors with her publin interests. LAST week's rains extended over the vast area of grain-growing country be tween the Missouri Valley and the At lantic seaboard. Its northern boundary was South Dakota and the lakes. To eastern Nebraska and Iowa the rain was particularly beneficial , owing to the light snow-fall of winter and the scarcity of spring rains. The unusual precipitation will go far toward restor ing the How of springs and wells in the Missouri * Valley , and place growing gram beyond the danger of drought. THEHK Is every Indication that the work of surveying the arid regions o Colorado and the territories will bo pushed forward at au early day. The chiefs of divisions and heads of the sur veying parties have boon appointed nnd are already on the Hold. It remains for the president only to give the wore whether the geographical surveyor the civil service commission almll mnUo thu minor appointments before active operations orations begin. The work is uocossa rlly u great undertaking. It is not in tended to nmtto complete detail maps o the country surveyed. But it is proposot to furnish the government HiilHcion knowledge of the topography , watot supply and hydraulic conditions of thn irrigable lands within the arid illutrictsu na to demontjtrato the practicability o roolaiinlng them. The best results are likely to bo obtained lu the north for the reasons that the head waters of the 'groat rivers are centered in a compara tively small area. It is believed thu tharo is water enough in the sources o the Yellowstone- , the Platte and othui rivers to supply all the land in their vulloys capable of reclamation. The problum to the engineers is how to store nnd distribute the waters properly , tc the people of the stated und territories interested. OIL Thora Is no longer any doubt of the oxlstonco of oil in paying quantities in Wyoming. The faith of moneyed men n the discoveries Is shown by the nutn- > or of companies recently organized to secure a aharo of the now fields nnd the irollts which await the Investment. ? jcpurts from I'anpsylvunia nnd Jiow York ImVo mndd thorough oxamlna- , lens of the country nnd pronounced the oil bearing region nurprising In extent. The credit of this Important discovery ) olonga to Omaha citizens. Their energy - orgy nnd perseverance extending over a period of ton years * demonstrated that n second Pennsylvania in mineral re sources exists on our western border. Thcso men hacked their fnith with their moans , and to-day control the cream of the oil region. Of the six Nebraska companies operating in that section four are credited to Omaha , and together they own nearly four-ilflhs of the un- cuvored oil Holds. .This Inot gives Nobrnsknna superior advantages In the development of an Industry of paramount importance to the west. Will they continue In control ? Will Omaha. and the state realize "tha full benefit ot the Jdlscovory ? TJtoso are questions demanding the sorioud consideration of our money men. Wall street capital ia beginning to How into the territory , and the men who made fortunes out of the oil andUstl-y in Pennsylvania nro placing their covetous hnndt on the now Jiolds of thn West. They realize the viwt im portance of the now Jlolds and the op portunities afforded for profitable re turns on the money invested , nnd they are rtot slow to take advantage of the situation. Our moneyed men are back ward and indifferent. They must reuse themselves and back the mon whoso faith and energy are virtually crowned with success. .Quteido capitalists are already seeking a share of their property , and it is not unlikely thnt suflicient inducements will soon bo offered thorn to part with a control- ing interest. Such a transfer would bo a misfortune to the city , and yet it can hardly bo avoided , under existing conditions , because - cause the companies do not control sufficient capital to profitably handle the oil. Refineries must bo built and operated , and pipe lines constructed to convoy the crude oil from the wells to a central depot. Those essentials require a vast amount of money , but handsome roturrts are certain , not only to individ uals but. to Omaha and the stato. Local control of the oil fields moans that Omaha will bo the Cleveland of the west. It moans the construction of a pipe line from the oil Holds to this city. An d more important than all , it moans the solution of the fuel problem , which now seriously affects our industrial growth. This alone would ho of incalculable value to the city and stato. Cheap fuel means moro factories , permanent employment for labor , and a larger market for the products of the farm in exchange for the products of the mills. Every factory adds to the sum total of our prosperity. It Tjonofi'ts the mer chant as well as the mechanic , and gives strength und permanency to trade nnd population. Thcso are a few of the possibilities in store for Omaha if her capitalists take hold of the Wyoming oil fields , not for speculative purposes , but for their own und the city's good. Energetic and united notion is necessary to prevent the tide of oil Ho wing south ward toward the gulf. ON 'J-nU UNITED STATUS. It appears that all that is now neces sary to close the Samoan negotiations is an order from Secretary Elaine to the American commissioners to sign. There were some verbal changes which ho desired made , und his request for those changes were promptly acceded to. It is not understood what further reasons there are for delay , but at any rate the administration has done wisely in giving the terms agreed upon by the commissioners careful and deliberate consideration. There is no de mand for haste , while there is very great necessity that the agree ment shall bo so , clear and doli- nlto in its every provision thnt there will bo no difficulty in its interpreta tion and no loophole left for future con troversy. It should offcct a settlement that will insure the perpetual freedom of the Samoan H from all danger of hav ing their homo affairs dominated by either of the powers making the treaty , while securing equality of rights and privileges to such powers. This is the fair and just policy which the United States lias contended for in the Samoan controversy , and which it IB bound to see fully carried out. The little diflloulty which the representa tives of this country at Berlin found in enforcing the 'demands of the gov ernment evidences conclusively the soundness and the justice of its position , and the in'dofensiblo character of Ger many's attitude. Whatever further conditions Secretary Blalno may require - quire , if any , will undoubtedly bo only such as are consistent with the declared policy of this country and essential to its success , A conclusion of the con ference is expected to lie reached this week , when the terms of the ngroomont will doubtless bo mudo public. , All doubt regarding the course of the Chicago & Alton road iu thn matter of reducing lumber rates between Chicago und the Missouri rlvor , .has been rp- moved by the letter of the general man ager to the chairman of the Intor-Stato Commerce Railway association , an nouncing that a reduced rate will bo mudo Juno 1-1. H will bo remembered that this company applied to the Inter state Commerc"u Kallway assosiutlon for the privilege of making a rate of ton cants a hundred , \vl\leh \ tin ) association refused to alloW | -prosonting very cogent reasons for the refusal. Among thcKo it was paid that to ] Hirinit the reduced rate to bo mudo would very likely result In bring ing on ti rate war. The general manager - agor of the Chicago t Alton intimated at the time thnt the company would probably make a lower rate anyhow , but thu delay in doing so suggested that n different decision had boonro.iqhod , The announcement of the general man ager shows that the matter had simply won under ndvtfiomont and that the original purpose- was adhered to. The breach thus mndo id a serious natter for the railway association , and coupled with other indo- xmdont movements by railroads Jolonging to the association con at f- Aitca a serious monaco to its existence. If the decisions of the asso ciation can bo thus disregarded nnd roads connected with it can do na they [ ilcnso without restraint , of responsibil ity , it Is'manifcstl.v only a rope of sand and can not hold together. Another demand of the Alton , for n division of Lho llvo stock trnfllo to Kansas City , Is before the commission. If the de cision is against the demand the Alton will undoubtedly 'withdraw from the association , while if favorable it Is more than probable the St. Pa\il will withdraw. In either event the associ ation is very likely to suffer a loss of membership. The withdrawal of ono road and Its independent action in miiklng rates would. bo pretty auro to lead to the dropping out of others. It looks very much as if the railway associations were doomed , and after that what ? Undoubtedly a renewal of the rate wars which the association was or ganized to prevent , and more evasions and violations of the in tor-state com merce law which it was alho n purpose of the association to put an end to. The situation should suggest to the intor- Htato commerce commission the neces sity of increased vigilance and a firmer policy in enforcing obedience to the law. Tin : efforts of the democratic organs to create an impression that the rela tions between Harrison and Blaine are strained have not boon oven modcratoly successful , yet they do not tire of , the unprofitable task. The Washington correspondents of those journals return to it at brief intervals , manufacturing the most obviously absurd stories of dis agreements and of studied efforts on the part of the president to annoy Mr. Bla o. The idea sought to bo.convoyed is that President Harrison loses no op portunity to intimate to the secretary of state by his action that ho is the president , and that Mr. Blaine finds this very irritating , while ho also frets ( under disappointment in not having to control all the appointments in his department. Not only do these stories totally misrepresent the character of both the president nnd Mr.Elaine , but they have repeatedly boon shown'to bo groundless. Every circumstance goes to show that fliero aus.beon the most agreeable and satisfactory understand ing bjjtwcon the president and the secretary - rotary of state , as there has between the executive and all the members , of tno cabinet. What it is hoped to accom plish by scttiiip ; afloat such misstato- mcnts can not oassily bo conceived , par ticularly when their falsity can bo &o readily and effectively established. lx the death of Leonard Swctt , Illi nois loses ono of her most cmin'ont citi zens. Ho was foryoarstiie'law partner of Lincoln , and w"on distinction as an orator in nominating the martyr presi dent in Chicago in 1SGO. Mr. Swett held n leading position among the law yers of the west , nnd his death is a great loss to the profession.

I "Tho social ovll Is n hard subject to man age , " said a well posted Lincoln lawyer to THE BBC bureau to-day. "Mayor Sawyer studied It , in fact ho gave it moro thought than nil the other affairs of the city basldo. Ho theorized , however , nud shot very far oft the mark. During the whole of his admin istration this evil continue. ! to grow nnd most luxuriantly thrive right under uU very nose. I do not care to discuss this subject myself , as I have no theories to advance. But even pr.nehoM might bo brought to ad mit that there are degrees of dogrodatlon and nil will say that the line of absolute ob literation and prohibition should bo drawn somewhere. Forbears n dive near tha cor ner of Eighth ami P has continued to exist , with no molestation from tbo authorities BUVO when some dastardly outrage was com mitted. If the keener or any of his con ferees went out on the strcat and dragged in a helpless victim by the hair , possibly enough nolso would develop to attract the at tention of the police , nnd the don would bo pulled. But. the police know , the mnyor knows , everybody knows that this vllo denis is in ono of the most prominent places in the city ; that it hns become n stanch in the nos trils of everyone who pisses up P street Into the city from the Burlington depot ; that it is absolutely the lowest , most degraded and loathsome don In the city , and that it should bo absolutely wiped from the face of the earth. Why isn't It done ? The cltv papers lament its existence and hold up their hands In holy horror because there is no way to suppress the festive Adam. Lot us sco : Section " 10 of the criminal cede roads ns follows : " 'Section 210. Every house or building situated In this state , used and occupied ns a house of Ill-fame , or for the purpose of uros- tltution , shall bo hold and deemed a public nuisance ; and any person owning , or having the control of. as guardian , lessee , or other wise , such house or building , and knowingly leasing or sub-lotting the sauio In whole or part for the purpose of keeping therein a house of ill-fume , knowingly or permitting the same to bo used or occupied for such purpose , or using or occupying the snmo for such purpose , shall , for every such offense , bo lined in any sum not exceeding ? 100 or im prisonment not less than thirty days nor more than six months , or.both at the discre tion of the court. , "It can hardly bo said in view of this statute , that thcro is no way to suppress them. It is a well known fact that these premises are used for this nnd other Im moral purposes ; that gambling of the lowest and most disreputable character is nightly practiced ; that the poor dupes who enter are are drugged nnd robbed , in fact that every ttiinir that is vile und low , and moan nnd grovelling Is openly practiced therein. The police , the mayor , the general public , as well 'as the 'owner and agent of the promises know it fully woll. If the city attorney does not know it some ono should take the trouble to inform him , and an action should be commenced im mediately against the owner of these prom ises under the above statute. "If this is done and this disreputable dive closed , sued scenes ns occurred the other night , when poor drunken Sadie Harper was dragged in and outraged by three negro brutes , would never occur again , at least , not on one of our most nubile streets. True , she was u prostitute , hut oven prostitutes have some rights which the public and the au- thoiities are bound to respoct. Then her little tcn-year , old girl , who yet Is pure and Innocent , would not ba subject to such con tamination. "It is true , " continued this lawyer , "that the city attorney , the miyor , thomirshul nnd the cntiro police force should wake up to the fact that this dou has had its day and should go.

" Wo will limn for you as well as wo can n verbal portrait of the Joyful Christ. The artists of the mlddlo a es , und even of mod ern times , have tin own too sombre n colorIng - Ing upon their portraits of the Savior , Wo recall but two or throe exceptions to thin rule , nmong all the Christ fnues , which ndorn the ohurchoa nnd urt Bnllcrios of the old world. Theology hns Joined hands with art In male. Ing Christ the norrow < bearer of mankind. Ho was Indeed "a man of sorrow and ac quainted With Brief. " At the sumo time , If vro study Ills ilcopor spirit nml llfo , wo shn * sco thnt his was ono of the mo * blessed nud happy lives thnt over gladdened the earth , Ho docs not rep resent himself ns burdened with pain nml woo. Ho scorns to have felt ho had such fullness of clndncss thnt If ho couhl Impart - part It to the souls of men It would till thorn with unspeakable Joy. 1. The perfect polso of faculties which wo Und In him is n constant source of happiness. Ho wns n healthy soul , animating n himlthy body. There wcro no horodltnr.v taints , cither in his bra n or blood , Ho brought upon himself no form of phyolcnl 111 by the viola tion of the laws ofjlfo. Ho ministered to the Ills of others , but wo have no evidence that ho over had occasion to heal diseases of Ills own. To this physical manhood , liner than n Greek Apollo , wns added n perfect montnl orannism. There were no diseases of tha mind to cloud his llfo , no derangements of the nerve forces to Interrupt the easy How of happiness. Ho snw things ns they nro , nnd wns never weighted , ns wo often nro , by unreal or borrowed trouble. Thcro were wltn him no sorrows growing out of n pcrvoitod conscience , no neglected to bu deplored , to sins to bo ntoncd , Anil can wo conceive of ono whoso cntiro nature , purpose nnd work , were nt- tuncd to the Invv nnd purpose of Uod , ns oth erwise than happy 1 J. Ho experienced the serene satisfaction which springs from love nnd trust. Ho loved God Bupro.noly. Ho trusted God Implicitly. Ha loved man tenderly. Ho understood ni none over did since or before , the worth nml possibilities of the human soul. Hatred and distrust , those hateful roots of bitterness never found lodgement In his heart. 8. Ho felt nlso the Joyful inspiration of nn exalted pin pose. One can never fall of hap piness whoso llfo Is dominated by exalted aims. One with ignoble nlina can never know the leal Joys. Much of our unhnppl- ncss has its root In sclllshncRs. Onr plans renter largely In ourselves. Those plans ilo not always nuccccd , ns wo feel n sense of loss. Or If they do succeed , selfishness can never bring rounded joy. Christ had none of this solllsh ambition. Hcnco ho escaped the sorrows which spring from the root nnd soil of Bullishness. Ho was whololy unselfish , Huuco ho experienced the Joys which nro natural to the generous soul , ns song Is natural to the lark , or fragrance to the son. 4. Not only wns Christ thrilled by exalted purpose , he was cheered by conscious power. Wo nro pained by our limitations. Wo sco ovll nnd sorrow nud suffering which wo cannot alleviate or remove. Ho could say in the midst of these "AU power Is glvon unto mo In heaven and' In earth , " and ho could show by deed as well as word , that he was mighty to heal nnd comfort. Are wo told thnt men rejected him and bis offer of mercy , nnd that the joy which might have filled his heart was changed to sorrow by the ill appreciation of mankind ) Yes , But did nil reject him ! Ware not the de- ciplcs , when called , quick to follow him ! Did not the common people hoar him cladlyl Did not the llttlo band of faithful ones , when gathered about htm , become the ecod corn of n triumphant church ) Wo nro accustomed to speak of Christ's earthly ministry , ns If Itvcio n failure. But did ho deem It n failure ) Did ho not exclaim in tones of exultation , oven nmld the pains of martyrdom : "I have flnlahud the work which thou gnvost mo to dol1 'Nor were the successes whlnh attended his earthly ministry nil thnt ho had to sustain him. Ho belonged to the true rnco of prophets. In the falling seed ho could BOO the ripened harvest. As ho taught in the temple , or down by the soa'ns ho healed by the wnysldo , or stood nt tha gate of Nnln , as ho wept over Jerusalem or bent under the weight of the cross , the scroll of futur ity was unrolled. Ho saw his gosuol ex tending until it controlled the trono of the Ctcsnrs. Ho saw it sweep on , through tb6 Gerrann forests nnd ncross the plains 61 Italy , nud enthrone Itself In tbo British Is lands. Ho saw it take shipping In tbo May flower , nnd light Its beacon Arcs on these far western shores. Ho saw the Idols of pagan ism go down before it , und the manacles fall from the limbs of slaves. Ho saw purer customs and bettor loves and larger liberty , and happier and moro peaceful homos , extending - tending with his gospel from the river to the ends of the earth. He said the king doms of this world , nro becoming moro nnd moro the kingdoms of the Lord , nnd earth became - came a section ot heaven , nnd the two world's blended into ono , and the ransomed family v of God , bowing before the king , cried , "Holy I Holy ! Lord God Almighty ! " ' ; Worthy Is the Lamb that was slam , to receive riches , and wisdom , nnd honor and ulcsslncr. " "Blessing and dory nnd power bo unto him that slttoth upon the throne. " "And for the Joy that was sot before him , ho endured the cross. " Christ calls us into his servlco. not that wo may wear u mantle of sack-cloth. Ho calls us to privilege , to freedom , to worship with God. He calls us that wo may know the worth of llfo , that his Joy may bo m us , and thnt our Joy may bo full , satisfying , everlast ing. ' .
