THE , completion of the assessment roll
for Douplas county , for 1889. shows a
largo increase in the total valuation.
It is estimated that the total valuation
\ ill approach thirty million dpllars.
The ratio.of increase far exceeds that
of any other portion of the state , Th
work of equalisation imposes an imp ( -
p rj.ant . ' dutyon the county commission
ers. If' ihis vast increase is sustained
nftor a detailed inquiry , this county
will bo forced to pay moro than one-
sixth of the whole state tax unless the
state bqard reduces the ratio to the
basis that obtains in other counties.

from the mon who nro. moot successful
in dodging the assessors. It is notor
* ious that Omaha's tux levy this year is
less than ono and a half per cant on the
tf actual value of the prop9rty listed fop

that there nro "gross Irregularities'

system of precinct assessors obtains ,
such a thing as an equalized assessment
will bo imposniblo. The general

On the heels of this concerted jubila

of trade , which had for weeks hold
back its findings nbout the advisability
of removing the fort , iniulo its report in

And now It transpires that the press

The Norfolk club of Boston , a few
days ajro , entertained a number of
prominent republicans , among them
Senator Higgins , of Delaware. The
Jtoplo of after-dinner discussion was the
southern question , and the principal ad
dress was madiby the Delaware sena
tor. He said there had. not boon a fair
election in his state since 1870 , "but1
ho remarked , "tho people of Delaware
are fevered and. restless , nnd while thp
tyrants were forging new manacles for
the republicans their own party arose
and repudiated them. " Similar forces ,
'he went on to say , are at work in Mary
land , the two Virginias , Kon- ,
tuolty and Missouri , and ho made
this appeal : "Men of the north ,
wo [ do not ask that you come
down and fight our battles for us. Wo
will do that , but simply don't ga back
on us. Wo pray for your countenance.
Do not withdraw your sympathy , as
'many ' havo. "
This , is the appeal of a man who has
been faithful to the republican party
and its principles iu a southern stato.
It reflects the feeling of every sincere
republican in the South. If they have
any dpubt o'r misgiving regarding the
future it , cornea' from the fear that
northern republicans may not continue
to. give them their countenance and
isympathy. They have suffered in the
past from a partial withdrawal of
this support to their courage and
fortitude. They have found
themselves almost abandoned by their
northern allies. They have experi
enced all the discouraging otlects of in
difference and a nearly total disiegard
of their closit us and their conditions.
They have soon the government trans
ferred to the control of the men with
whom they wore politically at-war , and
who having obtained control , grow
moio bitter and relentless iu their hos
tility , i'ot such republicans as Senator
Higgins have never faltered in their
loyalty to the republican party nor for
a moment lost faith in the triumphant
vindication of its principles. The con- ,
iidonco having been justified by the re
turn of the republican party to power ,
those faithful southern republicans now
only ask that their political biothron
of the north shall bo as loyal tp them as
they have been to the party and its
causo. They require no other support ,
but so much they must havo. Will It

The southern problem presents as
many difllcultios to-day as It has over
done , Doubtless no republican ureul-
dent gave it more serious thought than
it has received from President Harrison
risen , arid while ho bus shown quite as
much wisdom in dealing with it as any
of his predecessors , and moro courag
than borne of them , ho finds himself
now confronted by a now dilllculty
which , however ho treat it , may
thwart his undoubted desire to do
right and promote the purpose of
securing equal civil and political
rights for all citizens of the south. Thp
newest complication grows out of the
effort to orgnnUo u republican party
iu the sputh exclusive in its character

its ranks tl o great body of those repub
licans who ha\o kept alive in thcbouth ,

Encouragement of every wise nnd
legitimate moans for increasing repub
lican strength in the south should bo
given , but the republican party can not
afford in the least degree to withhold
recognition and sympathy from those
in the south who have boon always and"
at every hu/.nrd faithful to It , and with
out whom there would bo no republi
canism in that section. It was in behalf -
half of this class , the veteran and loyal
republicans of the south , that the ap

The everlasting wrangle about the
county hospital is becoming very tiro-
sumo to the taxpayers of Douglas county.
For long months past there has boon
scarcely a meeting of the board of
county commissioners at which the matter -
tor has not bcnn up for discussion. It is
high time that the unseemly squabble
should close. Whoever is directly re
sponsible for the wretched work which
ha been done the commissioners will
be held to n final accounting by the
public. The selection rot < a practical
superintendent was a stop in the right
direction towards doing what could bo

interests or those of shirking contractors

one moment to stand in the way of a

for making the building strong and

1 LAW NEEDING MODIFICATION.
The aqt known as the "contract labor
law"has been several times interpreted'
in special cases , but none arising under
it has been of greater interest than the >
ono now being considered by the attor
ney.general. The Catholic University
of America , located near Washington ,
desires to bocuro u corps of trained pro-
fcsbors of theology from turopo. The
attorney of the institution wioto the
solicitor of the ticasury asking whether
these professors could bo' imported , nnd
received in reply an opinionthat if the
management of the university had
made a contract with the professors to
come to this country us teachers ,
it is a clear Infraction of the law.
Apparently not satisfied with the
opinion of the solicitor , ' the matter
WHS submitted to the secretary of the
treasury , who asked the attoriioy-gon-
oral for an opinion.
Colonel Hepburn , the solicitor of the
treasury , hold that as only professional
actors , artists , lecturers and singois
\ypro excepted from the operation of the
law , it was not the purpose of congress
to Include teachers nnd professors
among the oxcoptcd classes. It was sug
gested by the attorney for the uni
versity that the members of the faculty
mo lecturers , nnd therefore would not
bo excluded under any circumstances
by the terms of the act , but this the
solicitor regarded as ingenious , rather
than sound. Doubtless a strict
construction of the law requires
the view taken by the solicitor ,
and it will not bo suprising to
find the attoinov-gonorai in ac-
eqrd with him. In that event wo shall
have the intoi eating fact of this en
lightened country having sot up u bar
rier a'guinst any of its educational insti
tutions employing the learning of for
eigners , if li ( order to do so they must
olTor adequate Inducements and outer
into obligations bofprn the foreigners
arrive in the country. If' ' the view of
the solicitor of thoHrpnbury is sustained
and the Johns Hopkins hospital , for
example , wished to secure the services
of the most eminent of European sur
geons it could not do so , for surgeons
uio not among the cxcoptod classes. If
Yiilp or Harvard desired to
strengthen its fucrlty by so- ,
curing a pTo/ossor / from Oxford
or Cambridge , , especially distinguished
in his itopnrtinpnt of learning , this law
would stop in to prevent thorn under
the construction nowglvon it.
The puritasccot the lnw It Is presumed
nil intolligcHtapooplo understand , waste
to prevent \flb importation of foreign
laborers unifbrconlract , and to this extent -
tent it is 'ji udlolous nnd necessary
measure. Qpipro its enactment the
great corporations were nil the time
loading upon iho country vast numbers
of foreign Iftbofors , the greater part of
them the inioa't ignorant , immoral and
'otherwise objectionable class. This was
not only disastrous to the labor
already hero , but it introduced
into the population an element
which was socially harmful nnd which
caused a great deal of * trouble. This
the law was Intdndcd to do away with ,
nnd it has boon largely successful. But
congress was not careful to make the
terms of the law such as to con line its
operation to the legitimate purpose for
which it was enacted , nnd the result is
that it has been given a much broader
application than was originally de
signed , and with no greater nosurdlty
in any case than the ono presented by
the Catholic university , The law needs
modification , so that the country shall
bo relieved from the ridiculous posi
tion of excluding foreign scholars
nnd others , in no strict or
proper sense , laborers , unless they
voluntarily came hero to seek employ
ment. It is bad enough to keep out
foreign art by a tax , but it is far worse
to exclude foreign learning , which maybe
bo required for th& greater usefulness
of our educational institutions. Such n
polipy is absolutely without necessity or
justification , and is a stigma upon the
TUB Kentucky court of appeals has
rendered an Important and interesting
decision. The local option law of Ken
tucky prohibits the sale of liquor as a
beverage , but gives druggists the right
to sell liquor for medicinal purposes on
the prescription of a "regularly prac
ticing nhysician. " No physician was to
make or sign any , such proscription un
less the person for whom ho prescribed
was actually sick and such liquor was
absolutely required as a medicine. The
effect of this provision was to subject
doctors to needless annoyances , and. in
some instances to criminal prosecution
for prescribing liquor on a mistaken
diagnosis. The _ court very sensibly de
clares that toaiequiro a physician to bo
"absolutely certain that the drug ho
prcbcribes is"iibccssary for the disea&o ,
and for a bififtch , the result of nn hon
est mistiko , to' ' mulct him in a line ,
would drive hjin from the field. " All
that is required , in the opinion of the
court , is that a 'physician shall be rea
sonably certainothat a patient needs an
alcoholic stimulant as a medicine. Con

of the railwaymail service , reinstated
by President Harrison , is by no means
a novice. His general order jubt issued
to employes in that branch of the post-
office department , has the true ring of
business. The efficiency and usefulness
of the railway mail service is to be ad
vanced , and every ono attached to the
organization is expected to perform his
duty. There are to be no unnecessary
delays , slipshod methods , or lack of dis-
iplinosuch as brought discredit upon
Postmaster Diolciiibon'u service. Not the
least significant of Superintendent
Bell's order is the encouragement held
out to those who perform their full duty ,
and by their capability and interest
merit advancement. It is a promise
that civil service rules will apply in pro
motions in the railway mail department ,
and they can not fail to have a most su-
Ihtory influence in bringing it to n high
grade of excellence.
IT appears that during the present
year the Chicago. Minneapolis & St.
Paul railroad has obtained a proportion
of the live stock carrying trade from
Kansas City to C.hicago larger than any
of its competitors between the same
points , ty also appears that the roads
centering at Kansas City and running
to Chicago have agreed to carry only a
certain porcontagopf freight , and to deliver -
liver the surplus trallic to such roads as
fall short of the equitable division. In
railroad parlance an arrangement of
this nature is called a division of trafllc.
It is not pooling , because the railroads
say it isn't , and because pooling , which
means a division of the earnings , is a
violation of the intqr-stato law. All
this may bo truo. But the average lay
man would like to know just whore the
difference comes in between a division
ot tlio trafllc nnd a division of the
profits. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

Mr. Mlclmel Protests.
WASHINGTON , Juno S. To the Editor of
THE BI.B : In 'Tnu DAIIA BKH of the 37th
ultimo , you published an editorial paragraph ,
the Jlist sentence of which "reads : "Tally
ono moro for Senator Mandorson. " You then
give lum credit for the appointment of my
brother to a place in the government print
_ Nov , in all fairness , you should correct
this statement. The facts nro tbat my
brother received his appointment partly
througtrtho influence of backing from his
own state , nnrt partly through influence herewith
with which Senator Mumlerson had nothing
whatever to do. In fact Senator Mandcrson
did not know that my brother had accepted
a place in government service when it oc
curred , nor docs ho now know it unless ho
gained his information from the nubile print.
Ho had no moro to do with it than ho has to
do with nny other appointment in the govern
ment printing ofllco made from another
I write this without having exchanged a
single word with the senator on the subject ,
nnd because , while I know you are n haul
lighter , you are disposed to bo fair mid
decent. Very truly , W. H. WICIIAII , .
