ECONOMY Is the public wuttli-word of
the board of education. Jin private all

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

IOWA shows a cotnmomlablo approcl-

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

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

its eye on on him in the future.
Tun Bellevue rille range for the de

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.

A week's carnival must of necessity
have a number of striking and drawing

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
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
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.
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.
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

Humphrey of Illinois , ox-Governor
Robinson of Massachusetts , and Judge
Wilson of Arkansas , only the latter re

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.

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.
