IRRIGATION is the hope of western
Nebraska. Its importance is being
realized. Enterprises looking to the
artificial supply of water for agricult
ural purposes are springing up all
through the arid region. The drouth
of the past few years will provo to have
boon a blessing in disguise if it develops
a sy&tom of irrigation throughout the
fortilobut rainless region.
justly In commuting to lifo imprison
ment the donthfcontoncoR of the men who
two years ago rovoltou against the
cruelty and oppression of the Navassa
phosphate company and killed six of its
olllcors. All accounts ngroo in saying
that the laborers who arc taken to Na
vassa under contract to worn a definite-
length of time are subjected to the most
brutal treatment. Once on the island
they are in a state of practical slavery ,
and while , the company exacts from the
men the fullest
compliance with con
tracts It is not at all scrupulous as
to carrying out its
part of the agree
ment. It id reported that the situation
on the island at the present time is so
serious that mariners from the naval
vessel Koarsargo are on shore to pro-
eorvo the peace. The laborers are
under martial law , commanded by
armed otllcors , vho shoot them down at
any sign of revolt , and they cannot leave
the island until the company chooses to
releasethem. . It is a state of affairs
that calls loudly for reform , if the au-
. thorlty exists that is capa'blo of reform
ing it.
IN view of the fact that the Italian
government more than a week ago re
called Its consul at Now Orleans , and
that this action was duly announced by
Premier Rudlnl in the Italian chamber
of deputies , the request of Mayor
Shakespeare for the recall of Signer
Corto appears to bo somewhat inoppor
tune. The objections of tlio mayor of
Now Orleans to Wio Italian consul are
not identical with these stated by
Rtidini , but both substantially
ngroo in pointing out that the
trouble with the consul was , ho
talked too much. This is nn unfor
tunate defect for any ono at any time ,
but it is especially BO in the case of a
consular or diplomatic olllcor when there
Is n grave issue hotwoon his government
and the country lie Is accredited to. The
Italian government undoubtedly acted
wisely In recalling Signer Corto , and
having done so there is nothing more
for Governor Nichols to do except to
acknowledge the receipt of Mayor
Slmkospoaro's somewhat extraordinary
request. Thus another incident in the
Italian controversy Is peaceably dis
posed of.
CHOP iiKronrs.
Tlio crop ropprts published with this
isauocover the country traversed by the
Union Pacific railway. It Is gratifying
to obsnrvo that from all but a very few
locations the reports are favorable. The
acreage is largely increased. Thostand
of small grain is excellent and corn
planting Is almost completed. In many
localities corn is already up.
The season ia fnr enough advanced
to feel reasonably secure of a good
crop of smiill grain. Insect posts
are causing no apprehension. The sub
soil is very moist and oven if the re
maining spring should bo dry , wheat ,
oats and barley will probably make a
good yield. The prospects for corn can
not accurately bo forecast 'intil mid
summer , but thus far the outlook is fav
orable. .
News roinns from Newark , N. J. , that
no less loss than twenty-three pearl but
ton factories have been roused into ac
tivity by the McKlnloy tariff act. This
must lo ) strange nowa in the oars of
these who have said there Is not n pearl
button factory in the United States.
And more , the wages of these who have
boon working in the factories huvo boon
raised from 40 to 00 per cent.
The dispatch says : "Several years
ago there wore about twenty-three fac
tories in Newark making pearl but
tons alone. A change in the tariff on
pearl buttons had a disastrous olTcct on
the industry. Nearly all the factories
closed. * * * In seven months after
the McKlnloy bill wont into operation
the trade is almost restored. " Possibly
this report will bringsomo _ hope to the
American people. Poir ! buttons are
at a very high price com
pared with the price a year ago ;
but the principle of protection may not
yet bo belled. Twenty-three factories
are too many to enter into any consider
able combine or trust , and tlio inevitable
offcct will bo the fall In prices. That
these factories are running is a stirotv
that the present price is not so
great ns the price of im
ported buttons and that they are as
good is more or lets evident because
of the fact that they are in the market
nnd are not perceived. The further
notice that "All applicants got work"
would indicate a restoration of an Amor-
can industry to its former high posi

perfecting of machinery in the industry
will bo ono of the great
moans of reducing Iho cost of
manufacture. What reduction may not
bo brought about by the great American
inventive genius must bo brought about
by the universal law of competition.
"As soon as the treasury department de
cides about the introduction of pearl
discs for buttons , whichisa cleat-evasion
of the tariff law , more capital will bo in
vested in button making , " says the same
There is no doubt that for a time at
least the users of American miulo pearl
buttons will pay a heavy bonus for the
privilege of wearing American made
buttons. But in the duo course of time ,
when tlio pearl button industry has
taken firm root on American soil and
American workmen supplement their
skill with machinery , competition
among button makers will cause a
marked reduction in prices , and when
prices are lowered materially , a reduc
tion in the tariff on pearl buttons will
follow without in the least interfering
with this important industry.
Tin : OIL L\si'icion MUDDLK.
Governor Thayor's action in connec
tion with the state oil inspectorship is ,
to say the least , not commendable. His
appointment of Games to the position
was a scandal that cannot bo explained
away on political grounds. But the
course pursued in foisting Games into
the office is not only contrary to usage ,
but of doubtful legality.
The law fixes tlic term of the oil
inspector at two years , but of
course like other appointees or
officers , ho can bo removed by
the governor for cause which means for
a broach of trust , neglect of duty or in-
competency. Governor Tliayor made
the first appointment under the law. by
commissioning Smith Ualdwoll as deputy
oil inspector. The commission was for
two years , and after the expiration of
that time Caldwell hold over until his
successor was duly appointed. Governor
Boyd , whoso acts wore valid in
every respect while ho was in office , ap
pointed Louis Hoimrod in place of Cald
woll. ITolmrod's commission , under
technical construction could not run less
than the period remaining unfilled in
Caldwoll's second term , which would
have expired on July 1 , 1891.
Now Governor Thavor attempts to
summarily depose Hoimrod by issuing a
commission for two years , beginning
two or three days after Boyd was ousted.
No charge has been preferred against
Hoimrod and not oven a notice served
upon him that ho has been superseded.
All that Hoimrod knows up
to thin date about Governor Thayor'rt
action is the peremptory demand
that Carnos has made for the possession
of the books , records and instrumant.s ,
Following this donvnid comes another
peremptory order to Mr. Iloimrod's dep
uties , countersigned by the governor ,
to withhold from Hoimroil all reports of
transactions under Iloimrod's adminis
tration and to turn over to Carnos all
the foes collected ami remaining In their
possession for Inspections made by
Iloimrod and under Hoimrod.
This is a high handed and questionable
proceeding. Tlio law authorizes the .state
oil inspector to pay himself and his dcp
utio.s out of the monies received for
such inspection and Iho state inspector
gives a 820,000 bond for the honest per
formance of duty and faithful disburse
ment of the funds. Now how can
Hoimrod pay himself and his
deputies for services that entitle thorn
to pay during , the first week in May at
least , before Carnos was commissioned ,
if they obey the governor's order. How
is Helmrod to settle his accounts and
how can his bondsmen bo hold rosponsl
ble in the face of such arbitrary ac
tion ?
Not only has section 17 of the act
creating the oil Inspector's office boon
violated by removing Holmrod without
cause , but common decency nnd plain
business methods would dictate that duo
notice of removal should have been
served upon Iloimrod by the governor
before ho is divested of his authority as
state oil inspector. Under our form
of government , governors are not Auto
crats. They are creatures of law and
their powers are defined and limited by
law. If they want to enforce ntal execute -
cute the laws they must themselves
obey them.
The annual convention of the Ne
braska Business Men's association moots

guests of the jobbers and wholesale mer
chants of the city , who will tender them

On behalf of the citl/.ous of Omaha

most hearty welcome and the freedom
of Iho city. They will bo in most ex
cellent hands , for the jobbers and their
representatives will bo their hosts. If
they do not enjoy themselves it will bo

Our citizens all over the city will
bo pleased to extend any courtesy which
may add to the comfort , enjoyment or
profit of the visit. It is hoped these
who participate in the convention will
find lime after concluding their regular
business to visit the various points of in

Gentlemen , "If you don't see what

ALMSOX o.v run iit
The recent inturviow with Senator
Allison regarding the present projpoc-
tivo condition of the national treasury is
likely to have a reassuring effect. No
man in the country is bettor informed on
the subject than the Iowa senator , and
his habit of careful and conservative
tatomont gives great weight to what ho
nays. Mr. Allison exressod the opinion
Lhat at the beginning of the next fiscal
year , July 1 , there will bo a surplus in
tlio treasury of about 330,000,000 , in
dependent of the fractional silver ,
amounting to $21,000,000. This , ho
says , will bo sufllclent with the then cur-
ont revenues , to provide for current
expenses and redeem the outstanding ! }
) or cent bonds as rapidly as they will bj
presented for redemption. It is to bo
presumed , that when the senator made
this statement ho was not nw.iro of the
fact that the pension demands for the
current year will bo loss by about $10- ,
000,000 than had been expected , so that
it is probable the surplus at the close of
the current fiscal year will
bo in the neighborhood of
$10,000,000. In the meanwhile
G policy of the treasury in converting
fractional silver currency into available
funds is proceeding satisfactorily , witli
the promise that at least half the
amount will bo so converted. Then
there is $ ( i,000XfO ( of silver bullion to bo
coined into standard dollars and added
to the available funds.
From these figures it is clear that the
treasury will have no difficulty in meet
ing all demands upon it for current ex
penses and can without the least em
barrassment redeem the bonds falling
duo in September , amounting to
$51,000,000. Morothan half of these bonds
are hold as security for book circulation ,
and in order to have them redeemed the
banks must deposit greenbacks or coin
to take their place , and this currency
would become immediately available for
redeeming , the bonds hold by others
than the banks. Mr. Allison is of the
opinion that the secretary of the treas
ury will not need to extend any part of
the -I js , and as the situation now appears
ho probably will not do so. Several
weeks ago Secretary Foster stated that
there was no danger of a treasury
deficit , and this assurance had a goo.l
cllt-et in quieting apprehension , though
it did not silence those who are predis
posed to prophecy ovil. The demon
strable figures and clear statement made
by Senator Allison , fully sustaining the
opinion of the secretary of the treasury ,
will bo accepted very generally by the
financial and business interests of the
country as conclusive. The only con
dition now threatening to se
riously disturb financial affairs in
this country is the steady drain
of gold to Europe , but there
is probably unnecessary fear on this
score , when our largo stock of gold Is
considered. The speculators will do all
they can to excite apprehension , but
there can bo no serious danger to the
legitimate business of the country from
any los of gold likely to bo experienced
from the present European demand.

Br.i : . | The work of the state rollof commis
sion has exposed sorry exhibitions of grcuJ
and sclllshuess , nnd Inclilcntally It appears
that the affairs of the commission have been
mutinied with ilrmiiess nnd ability. There
have 'been ninny coinphiluts from people
who chilmo.1 a right to relief nnd asserted
that thi.-y had boon noglculcJ. Over live
tntidi-cd of those have been Investigated , nnd
In not a slnslo ease was the complaint Justt-
Hod. Tlio persons concerned hud either had
relief or they were not dojervlnR because not
In need. Hero are a few sample Instances :
A plti-ous tetter , signed A. S , UroadUus ,
was sent from Ullss , Holt county , to layman
J. GURO of Chicago bo gln for aid. Tlio
letter wus forwarded to thu coninilssloiiois ,
which sent it to an ofllclal In Holt county for
investigation. Ho reported that both Uroad-
ihis and his wlfo huil been teaching school all
\\lntor iiiul did not need ill J. Ho adiloil that
Holt comity was able anil willing to relieve
all distress within her borders.
Kecontly a Mrs. N. J. Strohra canio
to the commission with n printed
circular signed by n preacher , n legislator
later , nn editor and other prominent
residents of Funm county. It painted n
doleful picture of abject stilTorliig In that
county. The lady came from Arapahoe , and
she knew Unit her neighbors h'ld ' receive' !
no relief , not oven a bushel ot com. It hap-
pencil tliat Dallas , la. , had donated a car of
corn on condition that the receipts therefore
bo kept separate from others. That corn had
been sent to 13. 11. Muruhy at Arapnhoo. nnd
the secretary confounded the fair appli
cant by showing tier n pile of receipts bear
ing Iho IKIIIICH of hur neighbors. Slio
couldn't quitu understand it , but tliu.v had rn-
reived thiou barrels from Hoalon which af
forded inoiij relief tlmn nil the state had
dono. The secretary asked if the barrels
were filled with silver or greenbaclcs , but got
no answer. Tbo lady wns quite sure they
needed help over In Gosper county , nnd she
thought sLo deserving herself , although
her dress would not have led ono to suspect
it. SInce ITobruary 1 Furnas county
has had * IKK ( ) worth of food ,

needy families were reported originally. In
the fnce of these facts tlio commission is dis
posed to questlolithe good fuith of the men
who signed the pitiful bogging letter.
Thu casu of J. A Kuilh of ICImball is an
other sample. Ho scut , u begcIiiK letter to
Judge Greslmui'.ort the scoreof being

The commission has Inquired Into every
complaint that has been accom

vestigations have boon made through local
committees , others by county ofllccrs , and u

The commission has learned of a number of
private solicitors who have been abroad in

The people huvo received their scod in n

Grant has put out 10,000 bushels of seed on

The horses are poor , but many fiirmow are

The main dlfllcuUy In dcaltnR with any
question of municipal reform lies in tbo In
difference and apathy of tbo great body of
the citizens to the existing state of things. It
is easy enough to suggest improvements in
the methods and principles of municipal ad

dining room arrayed In diamonds and Worth
gowns , is content with a husband who an-

has worn all day , nnd who thinks that , hav-
ng washed hands nnd face nnd brushed his
hair , ho has performed his whole duty to
society. Getting into n dress coat is nn event
like Christmas nnd Fourth of July a mo
mentary concession to Mrs. Grutidy , rather
than Iho outcome of eternal fiUioss and a
tribute to homo.
