JUST because a petrified hand clenching -

THE lead ere problem in which the
people of Wyoming , Colorado , Mon
tana and Utah are deeply interested
still sits heavily upon the shoulders of
the assistant secretary of the treasury.
Since the 16th of May ho lias Imd the
question under advisement , and as yet
has given little indication of arriving
at a conclusion. A great mass of testi
mony has boon brought to his attention ,
and it ia this evidence that ho is trying
to digest. Probably by the time congress -
gross assumblos an answer will bo given
turning the solution of the problem
over to that body.
Tni ! suspicion is well grounded
thnt the gobbling up of Omaha's river
front by ofilcinls of the Union Pacific
nnd Burlington railroads isjiot without
significance. It is all very well for
thorn to innko glittering promises of ox-
tonslvc improvements on the bottom
lands for manufacturing , warehousing
and storage purposes. The truth of the
matter is , however , that their scheme
la nothing more nor loss t'utn ' an at
tempt to prevent the erection of another
railroad bridge across the Missouri
within the corporate Hmlta of the city.
Their mask IB altogether too transpar
ent. The building of a new railroad
bridge ia an imperative necessity and
cannot bo prevented by any such con
spiracy. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
OMAHA'S growth In population dur
ing four years past has few parallels in
American history. The increase of her
importance as a jobbing nnd financial
center has boon the innrvol of the com
mercial world ; her architecture has
leaped from the cradle of village simplic
ity Into full equality with any western
city. All this is gratifying , because it
la the result of a kind providence , nat
ural advantages of location , and al
mighty hard work. But there ia the
ftituro to look to. No man can measure
the limits of Omaha two decades honco.
It isn't worth time spent to try it' , but

The reports from Standing Rock uni

these and other agencies.
The conclusion of the work of th (
commission calls for comment on tin
difficulties which it has experience (
and the moans finally adopted to sur
mount thorn. The primal trouble wa
caused by the secret chicanery ot tin
hand of so-called Indian phllanthro
plsts in the cast , whoso sentimental re
gnrd for the impossible Indian ha
balked for years every effort mnd <
to reduce the Indian problem U
a soluble oquation. That pi on
fraud , Dr. Bland , who ha
nctod as a professional philmithropis
and persistent claim agent for Rot
Cloud nnd his lost ponies , in which lit
is said to have had a half interest
blocked the way first at Pine Ridge

cess of. subsequent negotiations. Th <

Added to these disturbing-elements wa !
the elnuso in the bill indemnifying tin

was the natural consequence.
The part played by the military portion
tion of the commission was an interest
ing and suggestive one. Genera
Crook's influenceas expected , was pow
erful , but it seemed necessary
later to rolnforco It by the as-
sistnnco of Captain Randall , wh (
was called post haste from Amoni
to use his argumentative powers amonj
the tribes with whom ho was once sc
popular nnd persuasive , The congres
sional otatory of Major Wnrnor nnd the
dime novel flights of Governor Fostoi
appear to have had loss weight with
Gall nnd his band than the sententious
remarks of the grizzled veteran of t
hundred Indian fights , while the quiet
man to man work of Captain Randall
rapidly changed opposition to advocacy ,
The news of the commission's success
will bo received with general congratu
lation throughout the northwest. II
moans the final removal of a barrier
which for years has prevented the de
velopment of eleven millions of acres ol
Land with which the red soil of Oklahonin
can brook as little comparison as that ol
eastern Now Hampshire with Nebraska.
The throwing open of the great reserve
means in addition the peopling of n
neighboring frontier with thousands
of hardy settlers -who will be
largely tributary to Nebraska's
trade centers. Omaha has
peculiar nnd overmastering interest i.i
a territory which she will bo nblo tc
control proportion to the wants
of its population ant } the push , vigor
ivnd enterprise of her merchants.
It is predicted that the coining repub
lican state convention will be the most
uxcitiner over held in Nebraska in an oil
year. This unusual interest will not be
an account of the offices to be immedi
ately filled , but because of the bearing
which the selection of the candidates
will have on the gubernatorial cam
paign a year from this coming fall. The
preliminary skirmish is already on , al
though the date of the convention haslet
lot yet boon fixed.
The state committee meets in Omaha
ihis evening and will decide where the
convention shnll bo hold. While the
choice of the convention city may not
have any political significance , still It
s charged that the efforts made by
[ Tastings to secure the gathering nro
n the interest of General C. J. Dil-
ivorth as a candidate for justice
jf the supreme court. This , how-
jvor , these who favor Hastings
lony , and General Dilworth has
smphaticnlly stated that he is notacan-
lidate and that "no valid objections
anvo boon given why Judge Reese
should not bo returned to the place hems
: ms faithfully filled. "
In spite of this declaration by Judge
[ ) ilworth , there are these who believe
10 will bo pushed by the railroads for the
ioat on the supreme bench. Both Judge
[ Tamer and Judge Post are also openly
in the field tvnd in cnso of Dilworth's
'allure to secure the prize , ono or the
ithor will undoubtedly receive the
liearty support of the railroad cohorts.
The plans above outlined are alleged
, o bo but u scheme in the interest of
jenoral A. U , Connor , of Kearney , who
is alllicted with a severe case of guber
natorial fever. They are , however ,
, inblo to fall through. It is too early in
, ho season , considering the numberless
candidates who are willing nnd anxious
M serve Nebraska in the capacity o (
jovornor , to fix a slnto which can not
jo smashed before a year and a half
oils round.
The clearings of the associated banks
jf the United States nro published in
iho Commercial nnd Financial Chronicle ,
.ho standard and reliable authority on
iinnncinl matters in this country , nnd
the figures as published are correct and
properly grouped. But these figures
under analysis prove the incorrectness
jf the old adage that "figuros won't Ho , "
because in this instance they are mis-
Kansas City reports clearings for the
ivook ending July 27 , $7oU,7ll. : Omaha
reports 8-1,628,201 , indicating that Kan-
ms City's trade for thnt week was as 7 is
to 4 against this city. To make proper
nnd correct deductions it should be
borne in mind that Kansas City stuffs
Its cloaringB , first , with the busi-
iioso of the Atchlson , Topeka &
Santa Fo Railway company , which
belongs to Topeku , whore the head
quarters of the road nro located and
where its deposits should bo mndo and
cleared. Through the influence of
Kansas City bankers , however , the re
ceipts of that heavy corporation ,
amounting to over three-quarters of n
million weekly , are son I as received in
the company's safes to Kansas City and
go to swell the business of the banks
there. Then , ngnhitho packing house
business of Kansas City Is done through
the banks of that burg , whereas the
business ot Onmha'a packing houses h
done through the branch banks ( at South
Omaha ) of the First National and
Omaha National , of Omaha , nnd as most
of this business can bo cleared by mes
sengers botwcon these two branches , It
docs not coino to the clearing house
hero. On this Omnhn loses about eight
hundred thousand dollars per wcok
in the cleat-ings footing. Then , once
moro , it is well known in banking circles
thnt the cashiers of the Kansas City
banks , awnro of the flecadonco of their
city , nro in the habit of holdine cashiers'
chocks received in settlement at then
clearing house till next day nnd passing
them through again , in a toad of obtain
ing the currency from debtor banks by
Omaha also stands lower In the clear
ing house tables by the loss of much of
the Btnolting works business , which
amounted to ono and a half millions per
month , the greater bulk of which
does not pass through the clearing
house for the reason thut the smelting
works company deposits with the bank
through which nine-tenths of the col
lections upon the company nro mndo ,
and the drafts are simply charged uji
and do not go through the clearings.
In these divers ways Omaha loses in
the estimation of these at a distance
who are wont to estimate the activity
prevailing in commercial circles by the
footings rendered from the clearing
houses of the respective cities inter
ested , and it is just as well that It bo
understood that the clearings hero show
loss wlnlo her neighbors show
more than the facts. Visitors
to both Kansas City and Omaha are not
slow , however , to express the opinion
thnt this city is going to the front as a
commercial center faster than Kansas
City is retrograding , and wo know that
wo are getting to the front very rapidly.
It may occasion some surprise that
American citizens have gradually
gained a controlling interest in the
great Inmnn line of transatlantic
steamships. In fact , but a small portion
of its stock is now owned on the other
side of the water , although the line is
ailed under the British fiag. The re
vival in shipping interests during the
post year or two all over the world has
boon phenomenal. Ocean trnlllo has
called into service all kinds of
bottoms , especially steamships , and
rates have doubled and trebled
as compared with the rates of a few
years ago. Capital has naturally been
attracted to steamship building and
sailing , and the monster floating pal
aces turned out by the foreign ship
yards attest the profitableness of the
There is little question that the ship
ping interests of America would have
been materially advanced to-day were
it not for the fact that for years this
country has been handicapped in its
ability to compete with the Scotch and
English in the building of iron ships.
Our injurious shipping laws which for
bid the sailing of a foreign built ship
under the American flag have
likewise contributed in depressing
the industry , and in driving the
American jack from the high seas.
Happily there are signs which indicate
that America will soon take her place
again among the maritime nations of
the earth. The impetus given to ship
building by the government in the con
struction of steel-armored sb ips of war
has demonstrated the ability of our
ship yards to cope with the best on
the Clyde and Thames. Capitalists
have been quick to recognize this
advantage , and the chances are that
within a short lime largo orders will bo
placed for the building ot fleets of
American steamers for transatlantic
traffic. A project has boon announced
in maritime circles for the operation of
a fast steamship line botwcon England
and the United Statos. Mr. Austin
Corbin is at the head of this enter
prise , and the preliminaries are
said to bo already arranged.
Such a line would bo the pioneer of
similar stcnmshiu companies and would
induce confidence in the iron industry
such as it has not enjoyed for many a
day. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
President Harrison started yesterday
on his trip to the Maine coast , whore ho
will spend so mo time in courting the
sea breezes and visiting Mr. Blnino
amid the rocks and tides of Bar Harbor.
It is significant of the high pressure
of executive Ufo that the president
finds it impossible to leave behind him
ofiicial cures oven for n few weeks , and
that ho travels pursued by the impor
tunities of seekers after ofllco , and ac
companied by his secretaries and
boxes of tape-tied documents.
His last moments before leaving Wash
ington wore devoted to interviews with
politicians , and it is safe to assume thnt
almost his first in Maine will bo spent
in consideration of consular claims. In
deed , we are informed that much of the
delayed business of the slate depart
ment will bo finally disposed of
when the president and Mr. Blaine are
able to put their heads together and
discuss the olllcial matters which have
boon accumulating for the past month
in the files of the department of state.
The situation in Hnyti , the Bob-
ring sea troubles , nnd the approaching
congress of the throe Americas will all
como up for consideration , together
with the claims of a number of Ameri
can citizens in Central America for
indemnity for damage to property.
Half a hundred consulates remain to bo
filled and the extra session problem is
to bo definitely determined.
Altogether , President Harrison will
have to combine a great deal of busi
ness with his pleasure. Ho found it im
possible to lleo from its consideration at
Deer Park , among the Allcghonios. IIo
will find it equally impracticable to
elude it on the sea washed crags of
Maine. The importunities for ofllco ,
the demands of executive functions
and the clamors of pressing atTuirs of
state must bo with him whorovcr ho
goes. Under our system of govern
ment , especially at the inception of u
now administration , the veriest drudge

Tun first nnnunl cavalry competition
for the department of Dakota , the
Pintle and the Columbia , which takes
plnco this week at the Bellevue rifle
range , will excite the interest of the
array all over the United Statos. The
practice includes a woolc of known dis
tance firing and skirmish firing and n
week of competition firing with car
bine nnd revolver. This is a distlnctli
now feature in army practice , the re
sult of which will bo closely followed.
If successful there is little doubt but
that its scope will bo enlarged and its
importance- bo duly magnified. TG
both olllcers nnd men In the cavalry
service , the competition cnn not fail to
bo of great value. Not alone will it
ralso their efficiency , but will kindle
that enthusiasm and that esprit do
corps which so much distingushcs the
foreign service. The competition ol
the infantry rifle practice just closed
atBullovuo has boon eminently satis
factory , and there is every reason to be
hove that the marksmen in the cavalry
will distinguish themselves in no less
degree. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
E3HGKA.T10N to the United States has
perceptibly fallen oft" within the
few months , contrary to general expec
tations. For the month of July the
number arriving at Castle Garden was
less than twenty-five thousand , just four
thousand short of tlio record for the
corresponding time last year. The
cause of this diminution is traced to the
great efforts made by various countries
to divert emigration to their own col-
onios. England offers extra induce
ments to her immigrants to go to Aus
tralia or Canada , while Germany is
actually sending out her stir plus popula
tion to colonize her possessions in Africa.
The tempting offers of the South Amor-
ionn republics have drawn thousands of
Italians in Unit direction and the
chances are tha America's record for
the year will sliow a marked decrease
all around.
PHILADELPHIA presents some inter
esting figures touching on the number
of arrests ma4o | n that city for the year
ending Juno 11889. . It appears that
the decrease as compared with the
twelve months' , preceding was no less
than eight thousand five hundred. The
reason for this ! improvement in the
moral tone of tlio people is credited to
the operations of high license. Under
the old systota of low license , an ex
ceedingly largo number of saloons
flourished , especially in the poorer
riuartors of the city. The operations of
high license cut down fully one-third
nnd raised the standard of the saloons
now in operation. There may , of
course , bo other grounds for explaining
Lho diminution of crime in that city ,
but the ono in question is certainty the
most reasonable.
THE success of the Gentiles In carry
ing the municipal election in Salt Lake
is of moro than local Interest. It is the
first time in the history of the city that
the control of its affairs will pass out of
Mormon hands. Although numerically
in the majority , the anti-polygamy laws
tmvo disfranchised so many Mormons
that the victory of the Gontlles was al
most a foregone conclusion. There is
: onsoquently great cause for rejoicing ,
is it indicates that Salt Lake , for the
present , at least , is not to bo dominated
by church influence , which has been
juoh a powerful factor in retarding its
jrowth and importance. Judging from
the effect ot Gentile supremacy in Og-
lon , Salt Lake is likely to experience a
revival in business and to push its way
rapidly to the front.
CiTiiiS are now learning the value of
franchises for street railways and like
privileges , and many nro adopt
ing the policy of selling thorn to the
highest bidder , or exacting a bonus for
certain rights and grants. This by no
means indicates that by the sale , such
nities part with their right of super
vision and control. On the contrary ,
the charters granted to corporations and
syndicates for a valuable consideration
bind them under greater restrictions
Lhr.n when such franchises are given for
the asking. The determination of Cleve
land , O. , to exact a bonus hereafter for
flghts-of-way on the streets of that city
will bo watched with interest. A largo
revenue from various sources will inure
lo the city's bojietit without in the least
affecting the legitimate profits of com
panies holding subh franchises.

"If I had my way with men lilco the Carno-

puts it thus : "They , the people , must rise
and bear out ths heads of these devils those
capitalists on pikestaffs. The revolution
comes , the red Hug waves , " etc. , etc. , ending
in a wild hoop-la. There is a difference in
form of expression , a difference in the pro
posed method of extermination , but none in
sentiment. The ono utterance was no less
anarchist doctrine than the other.

"My opinion , " replied OUCuofto , "Is that
wo ought to give some good drug store a

"Woll , I don't know but that It would ba
bottor. " answered Mount. "Uo ahead , ad-
vortlso and see what It can bo done for. "
"Lcsllo & Leslie s.iy they will take tlio

"Hut whatever druggist should bo awarded
