Tin- : railroad commissioners of lowti

that in that state alone. , with 8,000
miles of railroads , . " 3U brakoinen were
killed or injured in 1888 on account of
the use of the common link and pin
coupling and the hand brake on freiglit
cars. Prnctical safety brakes and
couplers liavo been invented and may
be readily obtained , yet the majority of
railroads con tin no to disregard appeals
to humanity just as they delayed the
adoption of a substitute for the death'
dealing stove on passenger cars until
com polled to do so by law.
Tin : eleventh census will soon bo
taken. The work connected with the
census of 1880 covered n vast field , but
congress has added to the labor of tlio
now count by ordering an inquiry in
relation to the statistics of the i ml obi
cdness of private corporations and in
dividuals. Taking thu largo increase
of all kinds of business interests and
industries in the country since 1880 as a
standard , it will easily bo soon that the
work abqut lo commence will bo a. far
greater undertaking than any former
one in this direction.
TUB concluding letter of the highly
interesting nurios descriptive of the
political and social life of tlio countries
of the eastern world , by Mr. Prink G.
Carpenter , is printed this morning.
These letters have constituted a most
interesting feature of the SUNDAY Bui' '
for a year past , and have given the
reader a bettor idea than could have
boon obtained from any ether source of
the institutions aud customs of the
Orient , and of tlio characteristics and
social liabltd of the peoples of
the eastern world. Not only is
Mr. Carpenter 'one of the modt en
tertaining of correspondents , but ho
has no superior as a careful and intelli
gent observer , while his industry in
hunting instructive facts , and his fac
ulty of finding them are proverbial.
Mr. Carpenter has in reserve a great
deal of valuable material gathered in
his extended travels , and wo expect to
be able to announce at an early day an
other Borios of letters from him of the
most interesting character.

"Wlllltim Coburn has boon twlcd
honored by the republicans of Douglns
county with tli6 lucrative position of
sheriff. During both of these terms ho
has also been a member of the board of
education. Tils conduct in these re
sponsible positions has not always been
exemplary or commondablo. The fact
that ho was re-elected to the school
board last year by a largo majority waa
paraded as a vindication from
charges. As a matter of fact It waa
merely n proof ot Coburn's popularity
with school'teachers'and school house
janitors and his unscrupulous use of the
sheriff' patronage In the school elec
Mr. Coburn will make the mistake of
his life if ho persists in his candidacy
for a third term.
Unless ho is bereft of reason ho must
realize that lie needs a united republican
party to insure ro-olcctlon. This is
simply out of question , Mr. Co-
burn's candidacy can only end in his
personal defeat , and may also prove dis
astrous to the whole county ticket. In
the interest of the republican parly , wo
appeal to Mr. Coburn to wlthuraw.
Gratitude toward the party to which
ho is so much indebted would
dictate such a course. A re
gard for his own reputation
should impel him to withdraw.
Wo say this in no spirit of malice or
vinuictivoncs3. Tin : BUB has treated
Mr. Coburn with the utmost indul
gence , ana Mr. Coburn has treated
Tim BUB very fairly at all times. Its
oDposlton is not personal. Bu t wo
have become convinced that Mr. Co-
burn is a dangerous man in
the sheriff's -otllco. Ills sympathy
with criminals is too pronounced
and his all I tunics with the lawless
classes do not coiiinioild him as n candi
date for sheriff. Much as wo desire the
success of the republican ticket wo hold
good government above party success.
Unless Mr. Coburn withdraws wo
shall do our duty and our whole duty
and Mr. Coburn understands what that
moans. It remains with him to save
the party from disaster and himself from
humiliating and overwhelming defeat.
Within the past six years the Gorman
government has established a system
for the'compulsory insurance of work-
ncn ngainst sickness , accident , disabil-
, ty from old ago , and permanent in
firmity. Tlio operation of this peculiar
system is explained in the October
F rum by Professor Taussig. Only the
classes commonly called "working" nro
affected by the system , and practically
all such men , women and children-
are iiuured. They must bo insured
wliethor they will or not. There
is no. choice , but the compul
sion is applied , not directly to the
workmen , but primarily to the employ
ers. It Is required of employers that
they shall act as agents for the enroll
ment of the insured and the payment , of
the premiums. They are bouna to give
notice , within three days after employ
ment begins , of every person hired by
them who comes within the terms of
the act , and they are bound to pxy the
contributions or premiums , on bahalf of
their employes. A treed part of these
charges , moreover , they must pay out'
of their own pockets. They are en
titled to deduct from the stipulated
wages of their workmen two-thirds of
what they pay to the insurance fund ,
but onc-thirrt they must pay out of their
own means. The workman himself has
nothing whatever to do with the process
of joining the insurance organisation ,
or of paying the contributions by which
the benefits are made possible.
There arc several sorts of insuring
bodies , the most common being
the local sick assoaintions , which
the local authorities of every
city , town or village have
the power to establish , and the manage
ment of these associations is subject to
the durvoillunco of the local authorities.
Any capitalist who employs as many as
fifty persons may establish an indepen
dent association , whose members are
his own workmen only or the authori
ties may compel him to do so. Volun
tary friendly societies are permitted to
bo organized , composed of workmen
nlonoor workmen and employes united ,
the requirement being that they shall
guarantee as much in the way
of benefits as the compulsory
associations givo. The bonoffts to the
workman who falls nick are liberal. IIo
gets free medical attendance , with
medicine and all needed surgical and
luodiuat appliances. If ho is disabled
from work ho gets a sick pay of one-
half his wages , not exceeding , however ,
one and ono-nalf marks a mark is equal
to twenty-five cents per day. If illness
ends fatally , and it did not result from
some vice or culpable excess , the
association pays to the repre
sentatives of the deceased a
lump sum amounting to twenty
times the day wages of a common la
borer. When sickness results from
vicious practices the benefits may bo
granted only in part , and may oven bo
denied altogether. At most , the bono-
11 ts are granted for a period of thirteen
weeks. Insurance against accident
does not become operative until the
lapse'of thirteen weeks after the injury
is received , if the por.soa injured at the
end of that tlmo is still sull'eriu ? from
it , and only those accidents which
occur in the course of a person's em
ployment give a claim to relief.
The accident insurance associations
are composed wholly of employers , who
pay all the expenses. Tlio workmen
are represented oa boards of arbitra
tion , and the associations are under
government superintendence , every
thing they do being subject to the will
of the imperial insurance bureau. The
injured workman has all the expenses
of euro paid for him , and If his disa
bility labts beyond thirteen weeks ho
gets a pension , lasting so long as ho is
disabled , if completely and porma-
nuntly disabled ho geta for life a pon-
blon of two-thirds of his former wages.
If the disability is only partial ,
the pension is two-thirds of what ho
has lost in earning capacity. When an
accident results fatally the family of
the man is provided for. An act passed
last May provides for pensioning old
and disabled workmen.
The provision thus made for Gorman
workmen imposes one condition ia
order to establish the right of ita en
joyment , and that is work. A man is rv
mombof of a slok association only flo
long na ho works ; ho gets 'benefits
for such accidents only as occur
while ho is at work , the pen
sion system requires n period of contri
butions which nro paid only while the
man works. In order to got his insur
ance , of whatever Bert , a man must
work , and this inseparable connection
of work ntid benefits , remarks 1'rofessor
Tniisslg , is relied on by the Germans to
prevent those demoralizing olToots
which threaten every effort of good will
and charity for the poor. Whether or
not the Gorman scheme is nltogothor
wise and beneficent a longer trial of it
will demonstrate.

The delegates to the conference of
the throe Americas , vho have started
upon their tour of the country , will bo
in Oinalu , if there is no disarrange
ment of the present programme , Octo
ber'20 and 27. A committee of citizens
has boon appointed to arrange for the
proper reception and entertainment of
these distinguished visitors , and it
scorns timely to suggest that this com-
nittoo should promptly effect all neces
sary arrangements , and not Icavo them
to the last few days hcforo the arrival
of the delegates. It is desirable that
on this occasion Omaha's hospitality
shall bo of n character to make the
ino l favorable Impression upon the vis-
.tors , and that the arrangements shall
, )0 such as to omit nothing that will en
tertain and interest them. As their
trip westward will end here , wo should
endeavor to send thorn away adequately
impressed with the energy , enterprise
: uid spirit of tlio west , while at
the Siuno time showing that wo
ire capable of as generous hospi
tality .is any of the older commu
nities they will visit on their tour.
They will sco elsewhere many interest
ing things not possessed by Omaha , but
they should receive nowhere a mure
cordial and hearty welcome.
It is not only duo to the high-charac
ter of the foreign delegates to the con-
fjross that they should everywhere re
ceive from our people the most distin-
uishod consideration , is duo to
ourselves , The plan of the congress
originated with the United States ,
ind the objects it is intended
to subserve are of supreme
interest to this country. As has boon
pertinently said by Mr. W. E. Curtis ,
the representative of the government
in directing the tour of the delegates ,
the South and Central American coun
tries are not seeking our trade , wo are
seeking thoir's. It is therefore a matter -
tor of the first necessity chat wo shall
demonstrate to the official representa
tives of these countries that the United
Stales , with its practically unlimited
wealth , resources and variety of mau-
.facturod products , can. supply
all their material wants , and
that while seeking their markets for its
manufactures it offers them a great
and rapidly growing market for their
raw materials. Th'oso visitors are men
of high intelligence and influence in
their respective countries , and their
representations to their people will bo
accepted with unqiiostioningconlidonce.
That their observations will tend to
greatly increase the respect of their
pnoplo for the United States , which is
the first essential stop to enlarged
and closer commercial relations ,
cannot bo doubted. It is there
fore most- important that every
community visited shall heartily
attest its appreciation of the event , and
while extending a generous hospitality ,
provide for enabling the visitors to see
the very best it has to present.
Oilier cities along tlio route arranged
are preparing to do this , and it is not
too early for Omaha to begin prepara
tions. It will bo bottortp have all ar
rangements made a week in advance of
tlio event than to crowd all the work of
preparation into the last week before
tlio arrival of the delegates.

Nations are communities of homes.
Every inspiration and bacrilico springs
from a desire to protect to the hearth-
Btono. The ties which bind mankind
to country or nationality have their being -
ing in the home. It matters not whore
man or woman journeys , how far dis
tant business or pleasure may take
them , or how great the attraction other
countries or ether climes may possess ,
they invariant } ' return with surpassing
joy to the spot hallowed by memories of
childhood or domestic happincsss , utter
ing the immortal words of Payne ,
' 'There's no place like homo. "
The homo is the foundation of gov
ernment in all olvlli/.ed coun
tries , without it govormonts and
people would rapidly degenerate
into the barbarism of the dark
ages and the lights of Christianity go
out in a besom of immorality. Tlio
first and most Important duty of u gov
ernment is to protect the homo , to
make domestic life a question of seri
ous moment , not of sentiment , a ques
tion of caution and common sense , not
of impulse.
Tlio diversity of marriage and di
vorce laws in the states have become a
scandal and disgrace. They have en
couraged and legalised the union of
youths , or youth and old ago , and bred
.misery , misfortune and suicide. The
courts daily toll the story of disrupted
homos , of Hcattorsd families and broken
hearts , largely duo to the laxity of the
laws. This doplorublo state of affairs
is not confined to the United States.
It Is prevalent throughout the civilized
world , 'and presents a startling co'i-
trast to the happiness of the mar
riage state in seml-barbario countries.
"In India , with its two hundred mill
ion inhabitants , " says Sir Edwin Ar
nold , In a recent lecture in Cambridge ,
"there never occurs a marriage of in
clination , yet there are more happy
marriages in India , more happy homos ,
more pure domestic relations , { .han in
Any otlior part of the world. "
\Vo cannot accept the light of Asia to
illumine our path to domestic happi
ness. To make marriage a matter of
barter and trade , as in India , ts repul
sive , neither Is | t desirable that the old
world custom of parents forcing child
ren into marriage against tlielr will for
pncuuiary ends , should obtain in this
" "
country. "Gilt n great reform can bo
effected by a uniform mirrlno and di
vorce lawvjvV national law is essential
.o the moral health of the country ,
abates cannot cope with this
inportant imiostton because of tlioir
liability * * to unite on ti uniform

of congress to legislate on this subject
mil protficji family ties from the grow
ing evil of nlarltal freedom. Provision
ehould bjjjnado for the future welfare
of tlio country by placing restrictions
on dlvorcS linil prohibiting divorced.

riod of say one year. The mnrringo
ago should bo advanced , and nil per
sona authorized to perform the cere
mony should bo vlflltod with severe
) unishmont for violation of the law.
riio granting of divorces should bo llm-
ted to courts established for that pur-
lose , and complete records kept of all
narringoa and divorces.
A system of courts under federal con-
, rol would largely diminish the scanda-
ous dlvorco'biislnoss , which in many
states has become a moro matter of
costs , without regard to morals. It
would pro vent the disgraceful marriage
of more children by ministers too
mxious for money , strengthen family
Lies and elevate the marriage relation

Sir Edward Wntkins , the great Eng
lish engineer , recently declared that ho
can tunnel the British channel , and
that through trains will soon bo running
from London to Calcutta. The trains
may not stop there , but continue on
around through Asia to the Bohring
straits. *
Eight or ton years ago a BUB attache
first conceived , the idea of railroad
communication between North America
and Europe. Sufficient statistical In
formation was obtained concerning
Alaska in thin country and Siberia in the
Russian empire to wurranc the opinion
that a railroad through these sections
of the world could be made solf-sustain-
Ing from the start. The salient points
wore presented in a pamphlet of fifty or
sixty pages to the Russian authorities
and a correspondence continuing
through several months resulted in the
c/.ar requesting an audience with the
projector of the scheme. Alexander is
said to have been greatly pleased with
the idea of a railroad in Siberia con
necting with this country. Ho could
see that its tendency would bo to
settle Siberia , many portions of
which are valuable for agricultural and
ether purposes. Obstacles presented
themselves at the time , and when the
trip became practicable the czar waa
dead. The matter therefore rested.
The proposed route included the Un
ion Pacillc afid Oregon Short line to
Portland. From Portland it was in
tended to construct a line to the nar
rowest point in Uohring strait , bridge
the channel * and continue the road
through Russia into Europe. It was
understood , and -partially agreed , that
the Russian , government would
build the line in its own
territory , . and contribute its
proportionate share toward the con
struction of the Bohring straits bridge.
Sullicient capital could bo procured in
this country to build to Alaska. Dur
ing the past few years the project has
been seriously discussed and its practic
ability thoroughly demonstrated. Sev
eral wealthy men have given the sub
ject considerable consideration and Rus
sia is said to bo willing at any time to
enter into the work.
The time may yet come when an
Omaha man may take the cars and ride
to Paris , London or any of the Europ
ean capitals without change of cars. It
will no doubt bo a source of pride to
local residents to know that an Omaha
man first conceived the idea of an inter
national railroad.
JOSEPH PuLiT/.Bit , proprietor of the
New York World , has crowned Ills many
deeds of generosity by establishing
sixty collegiate scholarships for poor
boys , who are to bo selected from the
public school * ) of Now York. Mr. Pulit
zer's special object is to help the ooor.
Having worked his way from the foot of
the ladder to the topmost round , ho
knows tlio struggles and hardships of
poverty and the almost insurmountable
dlllicultics which deprive the children
ol the poor of a liberal education. ' 'The
rich can help themselves , " &ays Mr.
Pulitzer in explaining his motives and
purposes. ' 'My injunction against
favoritism must therefore bo con
strued as admitting favoritism to the
poor. But it is not the aim of this plan
to help people for ordinary monoy-muk-
ing purposes. College education is
not needed for that. There are nobler
purposes in Hfo , and my hope Is not
that these scholarships will make bet
ter butonnrs. bakers , brokers and bank
cashiers , but that they will help to
make teachers , Hcholars , physicians ,
authors , journalists , judges , lawyers
and statesmona I shall bo happy in-
dodd if it should oven in the smallest

of citizenship 'and usefulness lo the
state children , bf the poor , who , In
spite of talent , , without suuli education
nnd great hardship cannot compute for
the nobler pri/.pfl of an intellectual ca
reer. " Mr. Pulitzor'a gonoroblty gives
him a prominqnt position among the
public benefactors of the country. It is
broad , comprehensive and liberal , and
confined to q 'jjfuss ' whore Its benefits
will be sougl } ) . and appreciated. The
gift is the impulHo of a noble heart , a
credit to the f6ujidor and to the profes
sion ho so richly adorns.
A Ni ; JiiiKitof interesting government
centenaries have recently passed ,
attracting but little attention. Sep
tember 20 , 1769 , the department of
state was organized by the appointment
of Thomas Jefferson , its first secretary ,
who hold the olllce a trillo over four
years , being succeeded during Wash
ington's second term by Edmund Ran
dolph. At the time of Jefferson's ap
pointment Samuel Oagood , of Massa
chusetts , was made first secretary
of the postolllco department , while
Randolph , of Virginia , who was
afterwards transferred to the state
department , wau created attorney gen-
oral , Alexander Hamilton , the first
poorolnr.v of the trcasufy , was appointed

178' ) , General Henry Knox was con
firmed us secretary of war. Those five
ofllcois constituted the first cabinet ,
The navy department was not organized
until 170S , during Adam's administra
tion. Tlio 2CU ; of September was still
further distinguished by thu confirma
tion of John Jay , of Now York , ns the
first chief justice of the supreme court
of the United States. Thua it will bo
aeon that Ihe 2Gth of September , 1889 ,
deserves an honorable position in the
dates of important events in the history
of this country.
AN effort is to bo made In the German
parliament , which will moot next
month , tosscuro the repeal of the pork
nnd beef duties which amount to n
proscription of those American pro
ducts. It is'understood that Minister
Phelps has been instructed lo nsk the
German government to remove or
modify the duties on American pork
products , and there Is reason to expect
that his appeal will find support from a
largo body of the Gorman people , who
in consequence of the exclusion of
these products eat loss meat than
formerly nnd pay moro for what they do
oat. Tlio effort in this direction will ,
however , bo vigorously opposed by the
agricultural interest , and as Bismarck
has always assiduously cultivated the
favor of this interest , its wish will
probably prevail. But the government
is certain to hear a stronger demand
than over before for the removal of re
strictions which deprive tons of thou
sands of people of a regular supply of a
most essential part of subsistence and
enhance thu cost of meats to thu whole
TllE recent organization of cotton
manufacturing companies in Texas
evidences the gradual movement of
factories toward the source of supply of
raw malorlal. As competition grows
keener in the various departments of
industry , many of the factories of the
east will bo forced west or south or go
out of existence. Buffalo was nt one
time the stock market of the country.
Prom there it moved to Cincinnati ,
then to Chicago , and is now gradually
shifting to the Missouri valley , because
it is nearer the source of supply. Tlio
mountains of iron and coal in the south
are attracting factories on a large scale.
So it will be with the manufacture of
cotton. The success of one factory near
the source of supply will boon foruc
these distant to move or be crowded out
of the market. It is proof that the grip
of the east on the great inuustries of
the country is gradually loosening.

A post mortem oxnml-iatlon was hold last

no c.uiio for her doith , Tlio stomach , liver ,
kidneys and the node of the uterus wor-j
taken away for further examination and

Mrs. Kuboins is mild to have dlod from

by the presence of unlro In the blooil. and
tills Is can soil by disordered kidney * , which
roftiso to perform their proper functions.
Aa the CMiminnlloti showed the kkiiuiys to
bo apparently healthy , tills makes the death
moro mysterious than before. There is nNo
something of a mystery surrounding 110
holding of thu autopsy. Probaoly every
