were not checked in the least until they

approval of thu bonds of the pav
ing contractors by the board ol public
t works practically settles the vexed ques
tion us to who will do the paving ot the
Btroots this season. It is immaterial to
the people of Omaha whether the con
tracts bo sublet or not , so long as the
work bo done properly according to the
BpoolQentlons. That there has boon
fraud nnd crookedness in paving and
Bower construction is notorious , and Incompetent -
competent inspectors are oh lolly respon
sible for thib. It ia out ot tire question
to expect contractors on public works U
live up to specifications of the board ol

Judge Wakoloy la to bo heartily commended -
mended for the rebuke ho administered
to certain lawyers for Introducing in a
dlvurco cnsa nrntlor which the judge
declared ought to have subjected the
author to nrrost for Bonding obscene
literature through the mails. "This
court , " said Judge Wukoloy , "certainly
ought to ho kept ns pure in character
ns the United States mulls , nnd I hove
no patlonco with attorneys who scok
to contaminate it by filing petitions
thnt nro filled with obscene
literature. " There is a class
ot lawyers , far too numerous
In the profession , who sooin to revel in
the vulgarity and obscenity which can
bo extracted from most-divorce suits ,
nnd who , if iorinittodwlll spread every
nauseating detail before court , and pub
lic when there is not the slightest ne
cessity for doing so in the interest of
clients. Unfortunately , most judges ,
from n disposition to give attorneys the
largest possible latitude , tolerate this
abuse , though their own sensibilities
may bo rudely shocked and they
may bo conscious that their
court is thus made the chnn-
n'ol for the dissemination of Indo-
oentnnd linmor.il matter that cannot
fail to bo more or losj widely injurious.
The celebrated divorce cases thnt can
bo called to mind , of which that of Carter -
tor against Car tor , In Chicago , was the
most recent , undoubtedly had as
malign an influence upon public morals
tia all the distinctly obscene literature
over printed. It is doubtless true that
a largo partot the testimony introduced
in these cases was necessary and una
voidable , but it cannot bo successfully
contended that all of it was , or that the
most revolting portions might not
have been suppressed , and it is
true of nearly or quite all such cusos
which involve ross immorality that
the courts allow too gro.it ti latitude to
attorneys. It limy be too inuiih to hope
that the judiciary generally will oxor-
clso its authority to remedy this , and
keep the disgustintr disclosures of divorce
vorco suits within smno limitations
thnt would show n little regard for do-
coney and the public morals , hut never
theless the example of Judge Waitoloy
merits ntltmLlon nn'd commendation.

TllEUE MUST J1K NO ItELAPSE.
The Now York Sun , discussing the
western railroad situation , says there
must bo no relapse into rascality. The
early promise of the intor-stnto com
merce , railway assoointion , formed with
the avowed purpose to obey -the inter
state commerce law , to maintain stabil
ity of rates , and to secure among the
railroads in the association an equitable
division of business , was most favorable
to the realization , of these conditions.
As the li'iin says , there was
abundant and gratifying evidence
of the beneficial working of the ar
rangement , rates became stable , the
administration of the railroad proper-
tics improved , public confidence was in
a measure restored , and the general
trnllic movement of the country became
natural and regular. ' 'The condition
of affairs was entirely wholesome ; honest -
est and straightforward methods of busi
ness were in ths uscondant , and the
reign of rascalitv , of private feuds , and
of personal greed and rapacity appeared
to bo at an end. "
Into this hopeful and propi
tious ' situation was suddenly thrust
the Chicago & Alton compile
cation" That company had entered the
association most reluctantly , and doubtless -
loss never had any genuine sympathy
with the agreement. In order to se
cure its acquiescence the association
consented to modifications of the
original terms of the acrroomont , which
loft a loophole that has enabled the
Alton to ro'gain its independence with
out the least difficulty or responsibility.
Whan the association , nt the instance
of the obstinate company , inserted in
the compact the provision that , not
withstanding the decision of the arbi
trators , the company claiming the right
to make any particular rate may , after
such'decision , malco such a rate on ton
days' notice , the agreement was rendered
dered little better than a rope of sand
and the Alton obtained an nvonuo of escape -
capo which it has since improved.
When ltd application to bo allowed to
make n reduced lumber rate between
Chicago nnd the Missouri river was re
fused it simply gave the required notice
and the association was tuworlesato enforce -
force its decree. Then came up the
question of n division of live stock traf
fic with the St. Taul , and al
though this was decided in
favor of the Alton that , company
found an excuse for notifying the asso
ciation of its intention to withdraw.
The complications thus introduced have
brought on others , until now the situa
tion is said to bo regarded by conserva
tive railroad men as tbo most serious
that has over menaced the western
Wo observe that Chairman Walker ,
of the railway association , takes a hope
ful view of affairs. Ho looks , it Is said ,
for a cessation of hostilities , und believes -
liovos thnt at the coming mooting wise
counsel will prevail , und that nouo of
the companies will risk adverse publiu
opinion when they will have an
opportunity to accomplish commendable
things by maintaining rates which ex
cessive crops and unprocodontodly
heavy business will give them. But
there is nothing apparent to furnish a
ground for confidence of this sort ,
Meantime , how is tlio law being ro-
spoetpdV The Now York SIM alllrms
tliat the Alton , since it withdrew from
the association , has boon engaged in
practices which bring it within the
penalties of the amended inter-stato
commerce net , and it urges that these
penalties should bo enforced. "So bold
nnd shameless , " says the Sun , "has this
defiance ot the law become that it is now
essential , in the publiu interest , that
eoino vindication ot it should ensue. It
will not do to be content with fines paid
by presidents on behalf of convicted
subordinates , Such penalties are
laughed nt nnd incurred with contempt.
The provision which involves imnrison-
incnt muat bo unforced , and not against
the EorvunU , but agutnst thu masters
whoso bidding they do. " It would bo

upon the minds of the inter-state coin-
morco commiSBlonora ns to load tiiom to
take the measures they nro authorized
to tafto for oftoctlvoly administering
the law , nnd which it would seem nro
now , quite as much as at nny time in
the past , necessary to chock violations
of the law nnd to prevent a gonornl re
lapse Into rascality.
MANUAL THAtNlNO IN OMAHA.
The Instructor in manual training in
the high ichool has nskod for additional
room and also that more attention bo
given to this branch of instruction.
The special committee to whom the
matter haa boon referred should glvo
the subject of manual training careful
consideration , not only in its general
aspects as a part of public instruction ,
but with reference ns well to what has
been accomplished hero. Tie ( question
of the expediency of connecting manual
training with the public Bchools is
ono upon which nil educators nro
not ngrood , and considering the
limited extent to which this training is
associated with the schools of the coun
try , the conclusion must bo that a ma
jority ot educators nre not favorable to
it. The plan is , however , making progress -
gross , though slowly , nnd in cities
whore it has received adequate atten
tion the results have boon very satisfac
tory , nnd manual training in the
schools is strongly supported. There is
unquestionably n great deal to ho said
in its favor , but obviously when un lor-
taknn it must bo made thorough in or
der to bo effective nnd to command it
self to the public. A morcly super
ficial system of manual training is a
waste both ot thto puclio money nnd the
time of the pupil. Wo ni-o not fully in
formed regarding the course pursued
and the results attained in the work of
manual training in Omaha , but the in
ference from the recommendation of the
professor in charge of the work , that
more attention bo given to it , must bo
that it has been neglected. Wo think
the system bhould bo continued , but
only upon a basis of such thoroughness
and efficiency as will give it the high
est practical value to these who
shall avail themselves of it. A
saving in other directions could doubt
less bo made for the benefit of the man
ual training school. The matter is ono
to which the special commlttue of the
board of education should give more
than a perfunctory consideration.
Ax early decision is expected from
the treasury department on the rather
important question of thu classification
of Canadian cars employed on Ameri
can railroads. There has baon no inti
mation as to what view the department
will take of this matter , but there is
reason to believe that it Ir.w boon aub- ,
jectod to a strougtyressuro to induce it
to decide that thuso cars shall ba taxed.
The claim of thee who advocates this is
that the privilege ot frao entry now ac
corded Cauadian-built cars is being
luryroly abused , and that the im
position of a duly on these is necessary -
cossary for the protection of American
car builders. It remains to bo soon
whether the government will bo inllu-
onced by this view or by tlio moro liberal -
oral ono that so long as the Canadians
do not tax American-built cars running
temporarily into the Dominion , this
government should allow Candian-huilt
cars the privilege of passing through
the United States , provided they nro"
returned to Canada within a reasonable
length of time. Pending the decision
of this question iis interesting to note
that the Dominion cabinet has boon dis
cussing a proposal to retaliate against
the United States in tno matter of the
forwarding of fiondcd goods through
Canada from ono port of this country to
another , it having been decided at
Washington not to allow the transmis
sion of goods in bond from gno Canadian
port to another through Maine. Officials
are engaged in ascertaining the probable
result of such legislation upon tnotrajllo
rotations of the two countries , and Pre
mier Macdonald is said to regard tlio
situation as moro critical than over
before. There is danger that existing
differences between the United States
nnd Canada may become moro compli
cated und troublesome.
THU union soldiers and sailors are
well assured of just and generous treat
ment nt the hands of the present ad
ministration. It is understood to bo
the intention of the various heads of
departments to make no appointments
to office until all the votcr.tns who were
dismissed by the last administration for
political reasons shall hava boon re
stored to their former places in the
olllcos from which they were removed.
As the number of veterans dismissed
' for "of
from'tho various departments
fensive partisanship" and "pernicious
activity , " ns viewed by the last
administration , constitutes a con
siderable percentage , it will
require some time to uccomplsh their
restoration , and meanwhile the consid
eration of other applications will bo
postponed. The action of the adminis
tration in this matter , and undoubtedly
thu entire credit belongs tothe presi
dent , will lack the approval only of
these who have no sympathy with the
ox-union soldiers nnd sailors , nnd who
hailed with gratification every dismis
sal of ono such under the last adminis
tration. It is simple justice that every
veteran who lost his position in the
public service for political reasons ,
should bo promptly restored to it ,
THAT ought to bo a very delightful
trip indeed , undertaken by the sena
torial committee now on its way to
Alaska , delegated to look into the con
dition of the Indians thero. It is com
posed of Senators Dawos , Mandorson ,
Stookbridgo , Daniel and Jones of Ar
kansas , and is the first trip of 11 bonuto
committee into Alaska territory , Just
what the commission proposes to do ,
however , is rather vague. It will look
into the condition of the aborigines
und will on joy. Alaskan scenery and the
refreshing tonic of the north sea
breezes. There 1ms boon no particular
complaint concerning Alaskan Indians ,
but then as thu commission is expected
to mulcts a report on the tribes , what
bettor way to find out their habits and
relations than by a personal visit1 ! Wo

expression ofany public olllcor , it will
tolerate no violation and no evasion of

that to report It nt headquarters woula aid
the thief in escaping and working olT his
