fearful loss of life and property resulting

character of the dam , but took no menus

responsibility which they are now called
upon to shoulder.
Advices from the Canadian sent of
covonimont Deport a purpose on the
part of that government , with imperial
approval , to propose reciprocal trade In
lumber with the United States. So far
ns known nothing has boon hoard
of this intention at the state
or treasury departments , but the
information that , comes from Ottawa
appears to have the sanction of author
ity , and there ia nothing improbable in
it. The assistant secretary of the
treasury is quoted ns soy ing
that Canada has everything to
Rain by shipping its lumber free
into this country , while wo have every
thing to lose by such a transaction ,
from which it is to bo inferred that no
support for the proposal , should it bo
made , is to bo expected from the treas
ury department. The matter , however ,
is ono which congress alone can deal
with , and in thottyont of its coming before
fore that body there might bo found a
very considerable popular sentiment in
favor of it.
There ia already a considerable
amount of lumber coming into this
country from Canada , chiefly from
Quebec , Ontario , Manitoba nnd
the Northwest territory. The
Canadian logs como almost entirely from
these sections , while over throo-fourths
of the shingles , boards , plunksetc. , re
ceived through the northern customs
ofllces are from these Canadian locali
ties. A larger amount of unhewn logs
was formerly received in this country ,
especially in Michigan , the lumbermen
of the country bordering on the lakes
boiner accustomed to tow their logs
across to the American side and have
thorn sawed by the mills thoro. The
expostulations 'of Canadian millmon
wore responsible for the increase of the
export duty to throe dollars per
ono thousand feet- and the pro
posed reduction would unquestionably
benefit American millmon.
The benefits of reciprocity would not ,
however , stop with this. It would lower
the price of lumber in the United
States , and the far-reaching advant
ages of such n result cannot easily bo
overestimated. It would enable hun
dreds of thousands of our people to
build homos who cannot do so under the
present tax of two dollars on every
thousand foot of lumber , and it would
have the further good effect of re
ducing the tremendous demand upon
our forests , under which they are
rapidly disappearing. The theory that
the price of Canadian lumber would
eventually bo raised until it reached a
figure little below the price of Ameri
can lumber of the same grade will
doubtless bo advanced as an argument
against reciprocity , but it can hardly
have great weight with those who are
not predisposed in favor of maintaining
tho.oxisting tax on imported lumber.
The vast forests of Canada would supply
all the demands of the two countries , it
lias been estimated , for the next
hundred years , and under a policy
of reciprocity there would bo every
reason to expect a competition between
Canadian lumbermen so strong as to
keep prices at an adequately low figure.
The west and northwest want cheaper
lumber. It would bo a great boon to
the thousands of settlers who will
shortly Jlock to the prospoctlvo now
states. It would benefit millions of
others of our people. It is one of the
country's most urgent needs , and in the
event of Canada proposing a policy that
would bring it about thcro is nothing
more certain than that the proposal
will have a wide and earnest popular
support ,
There is a renewal of gossip regard
ing an extra session of congress , but the
uncertainty as to whether ono will
be called remains as great as over. Re
ported remarks of the president indi
cate that ho thinks the reasons in favor
of an extra session stronger than these
against it ; but ho has given no indica
tion from whiuli it can bo concluded
that ho iutundb to convene congress in
advance of the regular dale for its
mooting. It is quite probable that a
majority of republican represen
tatives believe it would bo
wise to have congress assemble
before December , in order that an or
ganization might bo olToctod before that
time and the contest certain to occur
over a change of the rules entered upon ,
but on the other hand there is a consid
erable number who do not bollovo any
thing would bo gained by this course.
The latter argue that at the best the
republican majority in the house , if
congress should bo convened in Octo
ber , would bo only four , and It Is ex
tremely doubtful whether they could
command a quorum if called to
gether in advance of the reg
ular ' session. If congress could
bo sot actively to work in
October tboro would bo decided ad
vantage In nn extra session , but it is
obvious that with a majority of throe
or four 11 party in the house of repre
sentatives can do nothing which the
minority determines shall not bo done.
Thus the party calling the session
would bo hold responsible for wasting
time , whereas to watt until December ,
when tha law requires congress to con
vene , the responsibility for delay would
rest upon the minority. Besides , the
republican membership will bo in
creased by at least four , and perhi'ps
live , by the elections to bo hold
in the nowly-formod states. The in-
'oreasod momborahip will give an
aggregate of three hundred nnd thirty ,
and Increase a quorum from ono hun
dred and sixty-throo to ono hundred
and slxty-bix. Placing the republican
strength at ono hundred nnd sixty-
eight , which it is llkoly to bu , It will
bo noon that whether congrusa Is called
in October or convenes rosularly in December -
comber , the republicans will have a very
slim margin upon which 10 start n era-
fade for radical changes in the rules ,
the lintormination of election contests ,
and impovtunt legislation ull'outiii : , '
party domination in the house , as well
as material public Interest * . It is im-
posslblo to say whether the lima gained
by culling an extra session would
bo of any nnl advantage , except BO far
ntt it served to disclose the plans of thu
minority , and it ia pretty well under
stood what these aj-o to bo , but ut any
rate it would clunrly not ho advisable
to call an extra session before the rep
resentatives to bo elected in the now
Btntos can thko their seats < The repub
licans in the house will not bo safe
without this addition to their strength.
English sparrow must go. That
is the edict of the Unltod States depart
ment of agriculture. Ho must bo ox-
tormlnatod root and branch , body and
'soul. The indictment against him is
voluminous. No lawyer's brief can bo
moro oxhaustlvo in detail , moro con
vincing by weight of evidence , or moro
thorough in logical deduction and ar
gument than tlio work of foiir hundred
and five pages prepared by the division
of economic ornithology under the di
rection of the secretary of agriculture.
The English sparrow , or to bo moro
exact , Passer Domosticus , is accused of
being the enemy to the farmer , to the
American song birds , nnd to man in
general. An alien by nativity , ho was
brought to this country forty years ago
by some well moaning though deluded
bird lovors. Since that time the spar
row lias increased his numbers so that
his progeny is as thick ns mosquitoes
and his tribe extends from the Atlantic
to the Missouri river and from Maine to
Florida. But now ho is n nuisance , and
the crimes nnd misdemeanors laid at
his foot make him a monster of such
dreadful proportions that every man's
hand should bo raised against him. Ho
is common , ho is unclean , ho is moro
prolific than an oriental sultan. IIo is
saucy , Ho lights , ho is a glutton and his
habits are demoralizing' ' to the bird
kingdom. Alien that ho is ,
ho has never adopted Amer
ican ways of living. Ho has
never become naturalized and
never will. Ho is an anarchist and
makes war upon the well-behaved
American song birds. Ho does not help
the farmer in ridding the Holds of bugs
and insects , but destroys his wheat and
loots his orchards. Ho toils not neither
does ho spin , yet winter and summer ho
grows sleeker and sleeker and bolder
and bolder in his depredations. Long
suffering America can stand this no
longer. Uncle Jerry Rusk has sounded
the alarm. The war of extermination
must begin.
THE Now York Sun finds fault with
the recently published historical
sketch of Iowa , by Justice Miller of
the supreme court , because there was
omitted from it any reference " 'to the
intense radicalism which rules the pco
plo , and especially to that spirit of con
fiscation nnd of plunder , wo might al
most say of rascality and robbery , if
the motive were not so highly moral ,
which they have displayed toward the
unfortunate owners of railroad prop
erty who live elsewhere. " The Sun
does not need to bo reminded that Jus
tice Miller could not properly discuss
the railroad legislation of Iowa in a
magazine article. His position as a
member of the supreme tribunal of the
country , which may at any time bo
called upon to consider this legislation ,
precluded him from.referring to it , nor
was it necessary to in a narrative
of the material , political and social con
dition and progress of Iowa. But had
Justice Miller referred to the subject
which ho omitted from his interesting
paper wo venture to think ho would
have said nothing to justify the Sitn'a
opinion of the spirit of the people of
Iowa in the efforts they have mudo
to protect themselves against the exactions -
actions and abuses of "tho unfortu
nate owners of railroad prop
erty who live else whore. " If the Sun
is as well informed as it should bo re
garding the history of railroad methods
and practices in the west , its character
ization of the policy of the people of
Iowa is only to bo explained as the re
sult of a prejudice natural to its envir
onment. In cither case , it is wholly
unjust. _ _ _ _ _ .
THE action of the Chinese govern
ment in establishing at Canton the lar-
jrost mint in the world for the coinage
of silver has created a good deal of
alarm in Mexico. For centuries the
Mexican dollar has boon the standard
coin of the Chinese , and in fact of
Asiatic commerce , and the purpose of
the Chinese government to coin its own
silver will , it is thought , result in driv
ing the Mexican dollar out of that coun
try. According to the loading financial
journal of Mexico the olTcctmustbo that
the Chinese government will buy its sil
ver in the United Status , thereby de
priving Mexico of an important article
of commerce. It is not questionable that
the action of the Chinese government
may provo a serious matter to the silver
mining industry of Mexico , but this
will largely depend upon what efforts
and inducements the miners of Ameri
can silver are willing to offer to got the
Chinese trade. In business affairs China
is looking for the host advantages , re
gardless of their source , and if there is
a competition between the Qnitod States
and Mexico the country that can offer
China the best terms will sell that coun
try the most silver.
AN Important decision has just boon
handed down by Judges Horton , Tuloy
and Collins , of Chicago , on the motion
of the Chicago board of trade to dissolve
the injunction to prevent the board
from withholding its quotations from the
buckotshops. The judges , much to the
surprise ot the board of trade , deny the
motion to dissolve the Injunction on the
ground that the market reports are of
so much importance to the public that
they should bo considered public prop
erty. This ruling practically settles
the long-fought battle between the
board of trade and the buckotshops. It
is not likely Unit the stouk exchange will
push the prosecution farther. It IB a sub
stantial victory for thu buckotshop , and
the curb stone broker hereafter will
bo put on an equality with the high-
toned member of the stock and produce
exchanges to satisfy his cravings for
gambling ,
Tim discussions of the international
conference al Paris relative to the solu
tion of thu labor and landquost'on ' have
not produced anything very startling.
In spite of ubalraot theories , tun oin-

buttlo.'i'iiit of the difficulty is al

An Interesting Question.
A very intrrosting question has arisen In
the courts of Philadelphia growing out of a
inarrinjjo which took plnco in Washington
Inst week. It seems thnt n certain gcutlomnn
cnlled upon n minister iu the Quaker City ,
and requested to unite him in imirriuco to n
Indy who accompanied him. The minister
put some questions to the t > xpeetant bride
groom , mid learned much to his astonish
ment that the gentleman wanted to marry
his mothor-in-Iuw , his first wife having died
some time previously. The minister did not
want to perform the ceremony without some
knowledge of the law , nnd upon making in
quiry learned thnt the statutes of the com
monwealth of Pennsylvania prohibits such
marriages , with n penalty fixed nt rx fine of
? 500 and imprisonment. The ceremony was
therefore off.
A few days Inter , however , much to the
astonishment of.the minister and other pco
plo who know the couple , n marriage notice
appeared in the Philadelphia papers , an
nouncing that the ceremony hnd boon per
formed in the District of Columbia. Now
the validity of marriage is agitating the
minds of those learned In marriage law. and
several hunts of musty statutes have been
inaugurated to ascertain whether there is
anything in the laws of the District of Co-
bin to prohibit such n marriago. The stat
utes are silent upon the subject , but It may
bo that thcro Is n provision of common law
or an old Maryland act which prohibits such
marriages. If so they have not been found.
f atonts For Pnzzlrs.
Some time ngo the whole United States
wns excited over nn alleged now ouzzlo
known ns "pigs In clover. " On every street
corner fakirs were seen soiling card-board
with three concentric circles ono Inside
another , and four marbles ; nnd every fakir
did n rushing business. Pigs in clover became -
came an Institution in the land , and the sol- ,
dlsaint Inventor realized a handsome fortune
In a very short time.
The Infernal machine was scarcely on the
market when inventors sprang up nil over
the country with "cows in the corn , " "rats
iu the Meal , " "mlco in the eheeso , " and anj
number of other similar devices. The patent
ofilco application room wns literally overrun
with men eager to secure the protection of
the United States for their inventions , but
up to the present tinm not n single patent
1ms ucen granted. All of ttioso toys claimed
us original principles nro devices which
were complete nt the beginning
of the century. No patent i'an bo
granted on any such contrivances , nnd the
Inventors nro simply put to the expense of
p.iylng the initial fees without nny returns.
It IB loni tied , by tbo way , that the so-callod
Pigs In Clover scheme was patented ton or
moro years ngo , nud that when the 1 at out
'Inventor" applied fora patent ho discovered
that it was not obtainable for this rcasou.
He is naid to have realized moro than 1100,01)0 )
of profit before the game played out , nnd he
wns only brought up with n round turn a
short timer ago , wluin the original patentee
secured an injunction restraining him from
conducting his business nny longer.

LINCOLN. July r. j
Fmiikio Currlo , a young iIrl who lm boon
living In Lincoln for sovornl months past ,
WIIB nrrc3tctl last night for uttering forged
pnpor , mul cominlttod to the county jnll at
midnight. It coms thut on the IStli of Jutio
Franklo entered Ashby ft Mlllspnugh'a dry
goods store niul rcprcsnntod thnt she wns
Miss Snvnso , Judge Mason's ' housekeeper ,
nnd that she hnd boon sent by Mrs. Hnm-
mom ) , the Judge's daughter , to buy soma
goods on credit for her us tlioy Intended to
start for Colorado In n few day ? . Knowing
Mason's prejudice ngninst the purchase of
goods on credit , the linn denied Miss
Snvngo's request , nnd Instructed her to grt ,
nn order from him for the goods
she wuntod. Shortly nftarwnril she
n nln appeared nnd presented n note ,
ncntly nnd lutalllgcutly written , of which
the following Isu copy :
Messrs. Ashby & Millspnugh : I will sco
thut you get paid for anything thnt Miss Snv-
ngo gets inc. Send the bill to Miss Savage
and she will settle everything ou my account.
I hud not known ttml pa did not want n bill
sent to him for us girls , so 1 will sco thnt you
lose nothing , Very respectfully ,
1039 L Street , City.
This giiarantco sntistled the linn , and tlur
ine the succeeding soventcen days she car
ried from the otoro over SMO worth of goods.
She came often nnd discussed Mason's well-
known peoullurltlus nnd other mutters with
such familiarity that the linn entertained no
suspicions , and was wholly disarmed. But
pay-day came , and with it the denounccmont.
It was soon thereafter learned tlmtthero was
no such tnmato as Miss Savage nt Judge
Mason's homo ; that tlmro had been such n
person there , but that she was no win Omaha ;
thnt Mrs. Hammond did not contemplate
making n visit to Colorado , and that the note
purporting to bo from her was a very
clover forgery. It did not InUe
vary long nftor this to report
the case to the police , and Officer Malouo
was detailed to look up the nuittor and if
possible to effect the arrest of the mys
terious shopper. AH this happened yester
day morning. From the inscription of the
girl Kivon by Ashby and Millspauuh , Mr.
Hammond Idcntillcd the girl as Franklo
Currie , who had worked in the family homo
a year or so boforo. Dilllgent search on the
part of the ofllcers located the girl nt the
home of G. M. Andrus , nt the corner of
Eleventh nnd M streets. When llrst ac
cused she sloutly denied her guilt , but wontc-
nned when Malone produced n pair of hand-
oulfs , nud promised to restore nil of the
goods if the matter was kept , from the pub
lic. This dodge would not work , however -
over , nnd the ulrl was taken
Into custody. Search for the Roods
revealed the fact that great piles of them
wore stored about the Andrus house. It is
understood that her contldenco games extends -
tends to other linns , and that her pillaging
will aggregate over ? 400. Franlcio tolls
many conflicting stories , representing that
she Is a noico of John Fitzgerald to homo and
denying : It to others. While not comely nor
oven nice looking , she htv ? an intelligent face
nnd evidently u fair education. She will
have tier preliminary examination baforo
Judge Houston to-morrow , when she will
doubtless answer to the charge of forgery.
An Interesting Interview.
"I see that Congressman Dorsey sayahe
has the renomination to congress in hand
from the Third congressional district , " said
n well known Dodge county politician to
TUB I3in representative this morning , "and
It may true , but I want to say ho must keep
Ills hands of Richards in his candidacy for
I lie governorship , or ho will llnd a 'nluger in
the wood-pile' right in his own county. It is
understood up our way that the political re
lations are bomowhat straightened , and If it
comes to a show down it will bo found
that Richards is the strongest man of
the two nt home. Mhul , I don't
say that thcro is nn oprm rupture between
Dorsoy and Richards , but it borders that
way. Moreover it nettles our pcoplo to have
Dorsoy claim that ho has the county in
hand whenever he wants it. The boast ho in one of the atnto papers the other
day was not that of a nhrowd politician , nnd
Ills friends are inclined to think thut he was
not correctly quoted , and some Of the be
twixt nnd uotweons had-rathcr think that
wny. "
"But I see that Dorsoy Is quoted by some
of the local papers as being u candidate for
governor. Howls ill"
"I don't think there is nnyting in It. I
think Mr. Dorsey prefers to continue in
congress , as ho suggests In a late Inter
view. "
"you think then that Richards is Dodge
county's preferred candidate for Rovernorl"
' I certainly do , and Jack McCall Is the
only man in the race- that can beat Mlm ,
John Watson doubtless has some strength ,
but not enough to cut any prroat figure. "
"Suppose Governor Thayer should bo
sprung by his friends , or that Attornoy'Gon-
eral Leese.becomes n candidate , what then/ / "
"I take It from what the governor says in
run Bun this morning , that ho means Just
what ho nays. As for General Lccso , 1 had
n talk witli him u few days ago , nna ho dis
tinctly stated to mo that he was ( jotting
ready for a rest from public life. Besides ,
I ho should become n candidate , the rail-
oads would turn tlio dogs of war loose
against him. He would have an unpleasant
Ight , and I believe ho appreciates it , but I
; steom him one of thu best men of the state.
Thcro are a good many complications ahead
of the republican party , nnd at this time
speculation Is almost useless. "
