AITOINTMKNTS and disappointments give viirloty and vim to a con- gressmnn's life. ECONOMY Is the public wuttli-word of the board of education. Jin private all plans nro gauged by the balance in the treasury. CHICAGO is determined to cut n largo figure in the COIIBUS. She is diligently gathering every suspect in the country to swell her population. ANNEXATION and consolidation should nolbo overlooked in the tumult of progress. South Omahn needs the sheltering care of the parent tree. Tim election in a lump of over two hundred school teachers , good , bad and indifferent , by the board of education was altogether too much of a job lot n flair. IOWA shows a cotnmomlablo approcl- atiou of home talent , and it is gratifying - ing to note Unit it ia deserved. The commission appointed to secure designs for a soldiers' monument awarded the first prize to Mra. Harriet Kotchum , of Mount Pleasant. Her design ia for n bronze equestrian statue of heroic size. THE City Reform club of Now York has just sent District Attorney Fellows a caustic letter calling his attention to his neglect and indilToronco in pushing ljj.o prosecution against certain assem blymen in the notorious bribery cabcs. Colonel Follows is , however , too old a bird to bo frightened into doing some thing to redeem hia bad record oven by the throat that the club intends to keep its eye on on him in the future. Tun Bellevue rille range for the de partment of the Platte has impercepti bly grown into national prominence. Although but throe years established the range has become a post for the competition of the department , the di vision , and for distinguished marksmen. It is possible that Bcllovuo rillo range may become ns famous as Wiinblotou or Crecdmoro , and attract annually EO- diors and visitors from all parts of the country. A niSTHKSHiNG state of alTairs exists lu the coal mining regions of northern Illinois , brought about by the pro tracted strike ol the miners. Having made but little preparations for u pro longed lock-out , tlio minors and their dependents are on the verge of starva tion. Unfortunately both sides to the strike are determined not to yield , which makes an early settlement of the difficulties somewhat dubious. The case is deplorable and demands imme diate attention in order to relieve the destitution of the minors. UNDKH some circumstances the steady shipments o gold from this country to Europe might excite uneasiness , but the present movement is simply n llttlo surprising in view of the fact that our exports have not fallen short of the im ports to the amount of the gold for- vfurdod. The explanation of the excep tional condition is that Europe needs gold and this country 1ms an abundant supply with which to moot the demand , BO that it ia going abroad just ns nny other commodity might which Europe wanted of us and could spnro. There is nothing in the movement significant of financial trouble , present or pros pective. _ _ Tint merchants of Omaha have at last rolled up their sleeves nnd show ti dis position to make the merchants' cele bration this full iin unqualified success. There la certainly a promising outlook. The oftlccrs of tha poriimnont organiza tion just perfected are one nnd all men who stand at the top of the buslnofw community and have never been known to undertake a project without making it n go , The directory contains moreover over one hundred of tlio mo&t onorgetio and'onthuslastio young buMncss men representing almost every branci ) o trade to bo found in this city.Vltl \ this combination of brains ni'd pluck great things tire to bo expected in the way of arranging n suitable programme A week's carnival must of necessity have a number of striking and drawing attractions. Now that the business moi : of Omaha hnvo "got together , " lot there bo no delay in getting down to work for the celebration. THE inniOATlOtf PROUI.BM. The question of irrigating the arid ogions of the west will vary likely have > romlnonco in the attention of the next congress. The tonnto appointed a special committee to investigate the subject of irrigation in the regions vhero it is believed to bo feasible nnd desirable , nnd it will soon enter upon ts work in connection with a party of engineers and surveyors sent out to .nko the preliminary stops for the con struction of a national system of reser voirs. A great deal of interest was manifested in this matter ) .y the last congress , and the appropriation made for the invos- .Igntlon and experiments will onnblo a good start to bo made toward demon strating what ought to bo nnd can bo done. The future of this great project will depend very largely upon the con clusions of the sonata committee , which is empowered to pass upon the whole mattor. Wo do not know that the com mittee has determined upon the extent of its investigation , but it Is presumed that it will confine its inquiry to ascer taining the most feasible and economi cal plan of establishing reservoirs at certain convenient points. In the opin ion of engineers and surveyor.- ) who liavo made a careful study of the sub ject , the easiest way to accomplish the object is to build dams at the mouths of certain largo gulches in the Rocl'y mountains and thus store up the water which comes from the molting snows above , to bo distributed over the arid lands below by menus of canals and ditches. The very great importance of this question ot irrigation for the vast re gion in the west that can be reclaimed only in this way was strongly sot forth in a recent magazine article by Son- ntor Stewart , of Nevada , the principal facts and arguments of which wo have heretofore presented. The arid territory is of immense proportions , and in the opinion of Senator Stewart much the greater part of it can bo made profitably cultivable by irrigation , be coming in time the homo of prosperous millions of people and adding enor mously to the wealth and resources of the nation. Even making a largo al lowance for an ovcr-cstinwto of the possibilities of this region under a sys tem of irrigation and there will still re main sufficient probable results to war rant an effort to reclaim it. If but one-half of it can bo made available for successful agri culture the ga'in will far overbalance the expenditure necessary to reclaim it. Vast as the proposed undertaking is in the probable outlay it would involve , this is insignificant in comparison with the value of the results believed to bo assured by those who have given the subject careful and intelligent investi gation. Just now the question cf the safety of such a system of reservoirs ns would bo required naturally suggests itsnlf , and it is possible the undertaking may en counter some opposition on this score , but this can hardly bo serious. Modern engineering skill is competent to construct dams nnd reservoirs that will bo safe , and which with adequate supervision can bo kept t > o. A matter of such vital importance and vast possi bilities will not bo defeated by a fear of sbmething which skill and care can render well nigh impossible. TIJJ3 Pi'.Vrf/OJV DEFICIT. The outcry that is being made in cer tain quarters against Commissioner Tanner , who is charged with being re sponsible for the deficit in the -pension fund , can not bo justified by the facts. Those show that the responsibility for the inadequacy of the funds is upon the predocobsorof the presontcommissioner of pensions. When General Black took charge of the pension olllco his disposi tion was to ask an ample appropriation for meeting the growing pen sion demands , and his first es timate to congress was for sovonty- llvo million dollars , which amount was appropriated and expended during the fiscal year ending Juno ltd , 1887. But meantime General Black appar ently conceived the idea that the gen erosity of the nation toward the old soldiers had boon extended as fur ns it should bo , and although there was ri steady increase in the pension list ho did not ask congress for any increase of the fund. Ho could not call for a less ap propriation than sovonty-livo million dollars , but ho would not increase it. The consequence was that the appro priation fell short of the de mands for the fiscal year ending Juno 30 , 1BSS , and the amount of the shortage wont into the deficiency bill pns&ed nt the first session of the Fiftieth congress. But even with this experience , General Black would not advance th.o figures ho had fix'ci ] upon ns the maximum amount which ho thought the government ought to pay out for pensions , and ho asked for only sovonty-fivo million dollars for the current fiscal year , al though figures prepared In the pension office showed that at least ninety million would bo needed. Congress , however , showed n moro liberal bplrit than the commissioner , nnd voted a fraction over nighty million dollars for the current fiscal year , which was still nearly ton millions below the estimate of the pension olllco. Tlio motive of General Black is suffi ciently obvious. Ho was anxious for political reasons to miiko a record for economy in pensions , and it is not doubted that in this ho had the full ap proval of the administration of which ho was u part. Had his party been suc cessful in retaining control of the executive branch of the government for another four yearn it might have suc ceeded in limiting the disbursements for pensions to the amount last appro priated by congress , but it could have do no so only by gross injustice - justice to thousands of solders hav ing a just claim to the bounty of the government , some ot whom have been properly provided for under the present administration. The exhaustion of the fund will cause bomo embarrassment to n considerable number of pensioners who are largely or wholly dependent upon this resource , but It will bo but temporary. The appropriation for the next fiscal year will become available July 1 , when the unpaid vouchcra will bo taken up. It Is estimated thut the amount which will have to bo mndo good In a deficiency bill will bo ton or twelve million dollars. STOP QUJ1WLINO AND OO TO WOHK. Architect ftfyors is now in the city to confer with the commissioners regard ing the county hospital. It has boon manifest for some tlmo past that there Is only one course open for the commis sioners If they Intend to complete the building nnd make it safe for patients and their attendants. It is notorious that the contractors have from the outset sought to evade their obligations to carry out the plans and specifications with good materials and in first-class workmanship. Every body who has scon the building knows what the commissioners have vainly tried to conceal , namely , that the ma- tarials used are below standard nnd the masonry outrageously out of joint in every particular. It is by all odds the worst botch of n building that has over boon constructed in this city. Now it does not matter who Is re sponsible for permitting this Inferior work. The primary cause of the whole job is with the contractors. They have deliberately put up a tumble-down con cern when the contract calls for the very best workmanship. It is all nonsense to debate with these contractors what part of the reconstruc tion they ought to do , aud what part the county must do to Insure the safety of the county honpltal. The only way out of the muddle anditho uny which would suggest itself to any business man , Is for the commissioners to take charge of the building , and finish it for the du- Hngucnt contractors as it should have upon finished under the Myers' plans nnd specifications. The superintendent ot the building is thoroughly competent to do this work if furnished the proper materials and allowed to biro the best mechanics. To quibble over this hospital nnd make charges and counter charges only convinces the tax-payers that the com missioners are unfit to manage tho' county's affairs. DEATH or tins. n. n. HAYES. Ex-President Hayes and family will have universal sympathy in the death of Mrs.Hayesand her demise will bo most sincerely mourned by a very wide circle of personal friends. ' To very many persons , also , who have boon the recip ients of her kindly consideration aud generous bounty , her death will bring n keen sense of bereavement. Mrs. Hayes was a woman of superior qualities of head and heart. In her relations of wife and mother she was most devoted to .the duties which those demanded of her , and in the homo cir cle she strongly impressed nor own in dividuality upon husband and children , who cherished fo "her thclondost affec tion and profoundjcst respect. Her life was thoroughly practical and abounded in good works. While meeting every social requirement of her station , she found time to concern her self in behalf of "those whoso condition in life called for philanthro pic assistance. Without ostentation she did much and generously in the caueo of charity. She was also identified with the temperance cause , giving it , however , little moro than the aid of her support , never having'taken nny espe cially prominent part in promoting the causo. except , perhaps , in tlio mutter of excluding wine from the white house. Mrs. Hayes was for n number of years conspicuous in the public trnzo , having been twice mistress of the governor's residence at Columbus , Ohio , and for four years the "first lady of the hind" at Washington. During this period her course was marked by a quiet dignity , a retiring modesty , and a gentle and con siderate manner in all circumstances , which commended her to universal favor and praise. The exacting and many-sided society of the national capi tal learned to appreciate her superior womanly qualities and to honor her personal worth , while in her native state of Ohio she was beloved by thou sands and hold in the highest respect by all. She will bo remembered nmong.thoso who have made American womanhood honored in all onlightoncd lands. Tin : dressed moat bill of .Minnesota , which was passed in order to ' 'protect" the homo industry , is now being openly violated by the importation of dressed beef direct from Illinois. The measure has consequently failed accomplish the object which its promoters had in view , and it is but a question of a short time .when it will fall wholly into in nocuous desuetude. Sharp lawyers have discovered that the law as drafted and passed by the legislature ap plies exclusively to the sale of dressed beef In the state , and can not interfere with its importation for consumption so long as it is not offered for sulo. In consequence largo consumers , such ns hotels , boarding houses and the like , have made contracts with Chicago hoof packers to bo supplied with fresh beef daily. Tlio consequence is that those largo concornsbavo middlemen's profits , getting their beef cheaper than for merly , and Chicago for the time being has become the retail market instead of the wholesale depot for Minnesota. The small consumer not bonoflttod by this arrangement is likely to vigorously protest when ho Is obliged to pay from twelve to fifteen cents per pound for moat which is being bought by the largo consumer at Chicago for seven. That will give the death blow to the embargo against the importation of drobsod beef and Minnesota will repent of her folly. Till ! interior department is finding considerable trouble In filling the Cher okee commission which Is to treat with the Indians for the opening of the Cher okee strip. Of the commission as orig inally appointed , composed of J. Otis Humphrey of Illinois , ox-Governor Robinson of Massachusetts , and Judge Wilson of Arkansas , only the latter re mains. Governor Itublnaon first de clined and the olllco in turn was offered to three men in succession , all of whom refused the post when they learned the duties of the commlhsion. The accept ance of this vacancy by General Lucius Falrchild was no sooner announced than Mr. Humphrey informed Secre tnry Noble that lie could not servo. It is quite evident that the work before the commission Is no easy ono nnd ex plains the roVdV&iico of those named to Borvo < The 'fomimissloncrs will b6 obliged to nopfllkto for tlio cession of about ninotodi likiUjon gores nnd wjll imvo to go nrnoi'iir the Ohorokoos , the Ohoyonnoa and several other tribes whoso reservations nro on the coveted land.

A great deal of tlmo wIll c consumed and con siderable liardstrijis Will have to bo en dured before Uitrlask can boootnplot'od , if it can bo done nt all. It ia not to bo wondered ut , therefore * that public men nro fighting shy ot an appointment which will bring them n , great deal of hard work with very llttlo glory. Tun legislature of Connecticut passed the second ballot rotor in bill last week. It is a measure intundoil to moot the ob jections raised by the governor to the first bill , which was n mollification of the Australian syslom. The ahiof point in the soudnd bill Is a provision insuring socYo'oy of tlio ballot. The state Is to furfilsh ofllclal papjr and en velopes of uniform size and color. Rooms screened from observation are to bo provided for voters at Iho polls. The selectmen of towns must provide envelope booths , which are to bo in charge of two parsons of different polit ical parties , to deliver envelopes to the electors. If an otivolopo con tain's a mark by which it can bo identified , it must bo thrown out. Polling places are provided for every ono hundred and fifty inhabitants , and violations of the law are punishable by a flno ot ono thousand dollars or imprisonment not exceeding five years , or both. It Is dif ficult to discover just how this system will ollect an improvement on the old method. It legalizes party polling booths and party workers , imposes n needless cost on tlio state for paper and printing , and surrounds the ballot box with a system of rod tape that is ns con fusing as it Is nxpcnsiro. As long as party workers arc permitted to annoy and bulldoze the voters , no pormuncnt reform can bo hoped for. CHICAGO will bo all ready to receive the census man next year with u popu lation not far short of a round million. Within a few days the leading suburbs of that city will vote on the question of annexationand their incorporation into Chicago will add something like tw o hun dred thousand bouls to her population. In the race for supremacy ns the second city of the country Chicago is giving Philadelphia if'claso brush. The very fact that sho.has doubled her popula tion in the last ten years is wholly un precedented in the history of largo cit ies , and has .qucusionod considerable alarm in the broast-of Philadelphia lest she bo distanced Within the'next twelve month. . . , .
