IN Tin : rovlsod lexicon of the council combine u public olllco is a private anap. TIIK cohesive ] > o\vor of municipal plunder has lost none of its potency in .the combine. THK marvelous activity in the sanitary department Indicates a consuming fooling ling for the public health. A I.KTTKK from Charley Brown on municipal reform , with Birkhnusor at the heml of the board of public works , is now in order. Tin : BHK commiserates the democracy on its inability to furnittli a more compe tent man for chairman qf the board of public works than Polo Birklmuser. Tun fact that the city bonds of Deadwood - wood netted a premium of four per cent speaks well for the financial and commer cial standing1 of the metropolis of the Black Hills. TIIK Minnesota prohibitionists are not half as anxious to rout high license ns they are to secure olllcc. This explains their furious denunciation of existing parties and the nomination of an inde pendent state ticket. SOMK cities in the state will doubtless bo disappointed over the result of the census , but they should not got discour aged. Lot them accept the result cheer fully and renew their olTorts to stimu late I ratio and manufactures. .Tonx T. CLAIIKK heads the list of Birkhauhor'fl bondsmen. John testified that the Tammany twenty-eight club , of which ho is , member it o , > composed en tirely of republican stalwarts. And precious stalwarts are they to bo sure. TriK purchase of the museums by tin English syndicate will not seriously af fect the local supply of entertaining curiosities. As long as the council com bine oxlstB , there will bo no shortage in the quantity and quality of local freaks. New that the bullionatrcs have cooled down they are willing to accept a coinage - ago bill which establishes a steady nnr- kot for all the silver produced in the country and at the same time prevents the national treasury Iwing made the ( lumping ground of the surplus silver of Mexico , iaouth America and Germany. . Tun plate glass manufacturers are alarmed. The prospective loss of the in creased tariff smuggled into the McKln- ley bill touches a vital spot in their pookotbooks. In view of the fact that their industry netted twelve per cent last year the demand forincreasod protection Is decidedly cheeky. - THKIIH are several luminous blood spots on the Mexican moon , and a revo lution imponds. It Is a dull , dreary season that does not develop a crop of domestic disturbance in the land of the greaser. They are a vital element of -the country's life. Without its periodi cal revolt and blood letting the repub lic would have no rational excuse for oxihtonce. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ Tun late Judge McCrary exemplified in his life those nigged virtues born mid strengthened by persistent tolj , His early life afforded few of the advantages which are' open to the youth of today. Ills hard , ceaseless worlc on a farm served to lay the foundation of a career honorable to himself and his country. In the halls of congress , in the cabinet nnd on the l > onch ho displayed a con scientious devotion to duty. Few men leave a more meritorious record than Judge McCrary , Tun British ministry is hopelessly 011- tanglod. By porclslontblundoring.mon- tal incapacity and bruUil disregard of public sentiment , the tories and their unnatural allies have boon driven into a cottier from which they cannot extricate themselves honorably , The narrow mar gin by which they escaped defeat on the lioaiiHO bill forced thorn to emasculate the measure , but this only borvcd to in- croasu their troubles. They musteither abandon' the bill or appeal to the coun try. The latter alternative tUoy will avoid nt uny sacrifice of honor or principle ple- , for they know that overwhelming defeat awaits them at the polls. It maybe bo expected , therefore , that the ministry will cling to power , with one foot in the grave , while there is u shadow of a chunco of holding a majority lu the commons , TUK ItAIIMOADS The Interstate commerce commission in its report to the senate regarding transportation charges on food products from the west to the distribution cen ters of the east , declared that the pre vailing rales on corn and oats from the Mist-ourl river , and from stations in Kansas and Nebraska west of tlio river , are excessive and should bo .reduced. Later the commission summoned the woBtorn railroads to show cause why their grain rates should not bo reduced to the figures named by Iho commission as a reasonable max imum charge and appointed July 8 for the hearing. This implied a purpose on the part of Iho commission to order the rates reduced. The railroads will respond to the sum mons with the intention , it is an nounced , of contesting the right of the commission to order a reduction. At a meeting of prominent officials and lead ing attorneys of the roads' In Chicago on Tuesday it was decided to nmko this issue , the roads taking the broad ground that the commission has no authority to interfere with trans portation charges. The dispatch states that the corporation attorneys will base their action on the decision of the supreme premo court in the Minnesota granger cases , but it is not quite clear how this can bo made to apply. Those cases in volved the right of a state commission to arbitrarily determine what wore reasonable charges , the supreme court deciding that the question of reasona bleness was one to bo deter mined by judicial investigation. The principle involved was that a legislature cannot delegate tea a commission arbitrary authority which might bo carried to the extent of prac tically confiscating the property of a corporation , and that where thcro is an issue regarding the reasonableness of a rate proscribed by a state commission a railroad has the right to have the ques tion judicially investigated and deter mined. It is at least questionable whether this can bo made to apply to the action of the commission created by a law of congress and representing the au thority of the national government. It is true that the interstate commerce act docs not specifically confer upon the commission the power to order a reduc tion of rates , but such authority is cer tainly implied. The result of the action of tlio rail roads in this matter will bo awaited with very great and general interest , for the question involved is obviously of the very highest importance. It will bo the first direct issue between the corpora tions and the commission , and the result will have great significance. If the cor porations are sustained the value of the commission , as the law now stands , will bo very matetirally impaired , while if they are defeated there will bo" a very general demand for a readjustment of rates by the commission. A conflict of this kind was curtain to come sooner or later , and the eauso that has produced it is of such large and far-reaching im portance iw to nriko it a mutter of na tional interest. THK JVKH' CHAWM.IN. The appointment of Birkhausor as chairman of the board of public works will create no surprise. Mayor C'ushing has been a mere dummy in the hands of the council combine since his election. Ho has simply executed the orders of the conspirators and meekly played into their hands for the sake of having his appointments conilrmod. Instead of being a guardian of the interests of the city , ho is ti mere catsp.iw to pull chest nuts out of the lira for political jobbers and venal contractors. What else could have boon expected ? Cusning came into olllco mortgaged body and soul to the renegades and boodlers who founded the Tammany twenty-eight club. Ho .will continue the property of this precious gang of rogues until they are broken up by an outraged community. Mayor Gushing can no longer pose as a second Grover Cleveland , who pro claimed that a public ollico is a public trust. Starting out with loud profes sions of his purp&ia to apply business methods to the conduct of the affairs of this city , ho has shown u shameful dis regard of busineos methods in the most important appointment at his disposal. The chairman of the board of public works of a city like Omaha should bo qualified by education and experience to supervise the construction and mainte nance of public works. Mayor Gushing has filled that olllco with a man whoso only trade has boon trade in politics ant ? speculation in real estate options. The chairman of the board of public works should bo a man frco from all obligations to contractors and above trading the iiifiuonco of his position for political ends. Mayor dishing has not only ignored those essen tial qualifications , but helms chosen a man whoso appointment has boon dictated - ted by contractors , mercenary councilmen - men , and political roustabouts. The mayor nuulo this appointment with the full knowledge that Blrkhauser will hold Ills ollico for throe years unless removed for causo. Wo venture to say that in the history of American cities thero' is not a p.millol for such a delib- oratos.iurilioa of tlu public interests at thobohcst of public plunderers. FOKKST DKPIiliriOIf. If congress does not take bomo action at the present session looking to the preservation of the forests on the public domain , the disclosures to bo oxpjctod from the consu.s regarding the depletion of the timber supply will perhaps induce legislation at the next S3ssion. Tlio dlniculty is that congiM-wmen sojm ut terly unable to realize the importance of this nvittor , and hence little attention has boon pilJ tothofaotisubmlttad from tlmu to tlnu showing the rapid destruc tion of the forests or to the roconunonda- tlons for its prevention. The striking statistics of the ravages resulting from the rocklo.ss greed of lumberman and the devastation of forest fires have failed to duly impress the congressional mind with the necessity df providing ade quate safeguards against the continu ance of thusa destructive agoncius , and consequently the forosXs arc still at their mercy. If this destruction is allowed to go on unchecked it cannot bo many years before the lumber supply of the country is exhausted. Soiuo recent statistics regarding the amount of lumber taken from Michigan , Mirtiip ota and Wisconsin are interest ing. It appears that last year these three states produced over eight billions superficial foot of lumbar and that the cut of shingles during that year in the same section win nearly llvo billion pieces. The census of 1890 estimated that there wore standing lii those states about eighty-four billion foot of lumber , and as the amount cut during the past ton years has been over seventy-four billion foot there is less than ton billion foot remaining , or but one year's stock on hand. Thus nt farthest two jnoro years will very likely witness the exhaustion of the white pine forests of Michigan , Minnesota and Wisconsin. It is said that equally as serious a con dition of things exists among the spruce forests of Maine , Now Hampshire and Vermont , whllo the supply of the same timber in the Adlrondacks lias been greatly reduced. An authority on for estry says that there is no more timber in the South Atlantic and Gulf sections than will bo required for homo use as eoon as any material local - de velopment shall take place , whllo on the Pacific coast tracts of good ( 'Xxbcr are confined to special spots , for the pro duct of which there is a demand from foreign markets. Those who have counted on falling back upon Canada may perhaps bo surprised to learn that tlio dominion Is almost as badly olT as is this country in the supply of merchant able pine timber. All those facts show the urgent need of provision , national and state , for preserving the forests that remain and for replenishing the rapidly falling supply. THK present congress ought not to ad- jpurn without providing for a system of cattle and meat inspection , unless nil ef fort to enlarge our foreign tr.ido in cat tle and meats is to bo abandoned. Oppo sition to-a national law for this purpose is confined , so far as wo have observed , to eastern shippers , who for reasons not at all conclusive contend that such a law would accomplish no good , but would operate - orate to the disadvantage of their inter ests. The fact that those shippers up- p'car to bo fully satisfied with the present condition of affairs is bimply evidence that they enjoy peculiar advantages not possessed by others in Iho same line , and Is not to bo seriously considered in face of the estimate , probably not at all ex aggerated , that our foreign trade in cattle and meals could bo increased in value fifty million dollars a year if wo had a judicious national inspection law olllciontly enforced. The secretary of agriculture has strongly recommended such a law as absolutely necessary to successful negotiations with Euro pean countries for the removal or modi fication of the restrictions upon the im portation of American cattle and meat products , and our ministers to Franco and Germany have expressed a like opinion. It is largely our own fault that those restrictions exist , and the only remedy is to bo found in a system of thorough national inspection which will deprive foreign governments of all ex cuse for claiming that our moats cannot sufoly bo used. Now that Charley Brown has come to the front as sponsor and bondsman for Birkhauser , and indirectly has played into the hands of the rottoncat combine that has over had a grip upon Omaha to-xpaj'ors , his boom for congress will bo heartily seconded by the Tammany stal warts. It is in accord with the eternal fitness of things. TUG work of smothering tlio jail job goes on merrily. In less than seven days Mr. O'Connor's smelling committee will bo vigorously and effectively kicked into the combine traces. Tlio gang cannot afford to tolerate rebellion in the ranks , The whole thing has been a farce from the outset. THE firm of Birkhausor & Blumor will continue business at the old stand. Owing to tlio conspicuous positions oc cupied by the members In municipal af fairs they are enabled to give patrons inside rates in the jobbing lino. Marat Is Alter Tammany. Clitcaao Inter-Ocean.

It is understood that In the diplomatic in tercourse between our country and Great ni-ltnln the roprcsontattvo of the latter has Invariably used the expression , "her majesty oxpot'ts , " in stating his proposition. The formula of our state department has been , "tho president ventures to hope. " The pres ent udmliiUtnitioa hus violated this pi-eco- dent.Mr. Bluino writes , "tho president ex pects. " The change in the diplomatic Iniinittitfo may perhaps produce a change in the attitude of the liritish government toward ours , BO that by and by such expressions as those or the English will cease. A Good \Voril for Tlwyor. ItMlinn Sun. Few men hnvo been subjected to more out rageous abase und censure than Governor Thnyor. But there are hosts of people In Nebraska who recognize his great worth as a mun , his ability n * an executive and hU great serviced to the state and nation. As an lustniioo of commendation wo publish the following ; Governor Thayer stands at the head of Nebraska governors , and equals , nt least , uny governor of any other state in the Inter est ho takes In the welfare of his people. Ho Is always timely lu moving and acting for their interests and protection as hi quar. antlnlng the cuttle pluguo ; for calling for rute.1 so as to omiblo fanners to ship their corn with at least a little profit , and in many other ways that oannot bo mentioned la u brief article.

This Is not only getting vary stale , but Is wholly un called for. Whatever may bo said of Gover nor Thayer It cannot bo denied that ho has bocti inoro of n common people's governor than any governor the state has ever had , and It Is not Utting that every man who wishes to bo funny should cost these pollota at ono of the oldest citizens of Nebraska , whoso services as a soldier and a statesman the people recognize.

Ltxcor.x , Nob. , Juno 25. [ Special to Tun Bur. . ] The union labor party held a confer ence at lied lilbbou hall this afternoon. Thrco hundred ntul twenty-live delegates from various parts of the state handed In their credentials ; but just nlnetyiilnovcro present. I. N. Chamberlain of Stromsburg , chnlr- mnu of the stnto committee of the union labor party , called the convention to order. The temporary organization resulted In the elec tion of Allen Hoot of Douglas county as chair man nnd J. H. Craddock of Lancaster county as secretary. When Hoot took the chair ho stated that the tlmo would come when the producing class must Und means to remedy the evils existing hi our state government , mid if the men elected to ofllco should play them false thnt the hemp was growing that would hang them. William McICelgan of Ked Cloud made n short speech , the tenor of his remarks being that the tlmo had come when the labor or ganizations demanded n secret ballot system and a monetary system that would glvo the people money. Ho was opposed to the ullen ownership of laud. After n short speech by I..N. Chamberlain of Stromsburg J. E. Colby of Washington county made n long speech in which ho favored the making of gold , silver nnd green backs for legal tender. Mr. John H. Powers , president of thn stnto alliance nnd vice president of the national al liance , was called for. He said that ho rep resented between 00,000 nnd 70,003 people. That the organization ho represented was distinctively a political organization. Ho asked those urcscut to join with the alliance in its work. George Lynn , n lawyer from Hastings , said that ho had been n prohibitionist since 1SIO. Ho insisted that those who produce the wealth of the country should enjoy it. Ho said ho and Mr. J. B. Koch had done n great deal of work In the publication of the labor paper , Our Own Opinion , and in other'lines for the labor Interest and that they were deserving of some of the money of the country as a fair return. The report of the committee on credentials was then adopted. On motion of ex-Gov ernor David IJutler the temporary organiza tion was m ide permanent. I. N. Chamberlain then addressed the dele gates saying that ho know the minds of the people before him ; that this class of people uro inexperienced ; Unit if any of them are asked to come to Lincoln to attend a conven tion they are liable to ask if Lincoln is In Nebraska. If cue is asked to con tribute u penny to the cause , ho will pinch the penny anil keep It. The speaker said that ho hud worked for the party for n year , that his family had somehow got something to eat , but ho had received nothing for his services. He spoke in a belittling manner of the antimonopoly - monopoly republican convention dubbing it "the Leese-Kosowator-Keckloy affair , " and attempted to ridicule the action of Governor Tlmyer in revoking the call for a special ses- slonoftholegislature. Ilapuffed the "Journal of the Knights of Labor" and urged his audi tors to subscribe for this paper. His closing scntcncowas : "I have labored as earnestly as God has given mo strength to got you to gether. Now do something. " Ex-Governor Butler moved that Chamber lain bo re-elected as chairman of the state committee for the ensuing year. Chamberlain then jumped up and said : "Taffy don't feed the babies. If you go along the principles I have proclaimed I will go with you. If not I will not. " Mr. Maxwell of Lincoln then nroso nnd ex pressed considerable surprise that Governor Butler should make such a motion. Ho did not know that the meeting was of the union labor political party. Ho supposed that the representatives present were bimply hero on invitation nnd could not vote on the reelection tion of Air. Chamberlain or bo responsible for the same. "What did you come bpro for ! " snecringly asked Chamberlain. Maxwell paid no attention to the query and Chamberlain asked the same question three more times , adorning it each time with some exclamation. Chamberlain then moved thnt Maxwell bo excused from voting and the chairman at tempted to put the question without a second , but was culled to order. S. J. Kent of Lincoln then nroso and said ho came not as a politician , but as a member of the carpenters' union to represent them lu independent political action , und that ho wanted to know before ho voted If the prin ciples advocated by the carpenters' union were to bo incorporated in the resolutions adopted by the delegation present. Air. McCord of Valley then insisted thnt a series of resolutions bo llrst adopted instead , of attempting to club the delegates Into voting ing before any dolhiito understanding had been ugreed upon. On motion of Mr. Craddock the following resolutions adopted by the national conven tion of the Knights of Labor ut St. Louis were adopted : 1.
