Attention Is Invited to the announcement

enterprise in the Interest of persons ii
Nohm lm , Kansas , Iowa and Buutl
Dakota having claims against th
government under the pension laws , tlv
Indian depredations act passed by tin
last conprcwH , and the land , mining

of the San Pram-isro Exiiminfr ,
Mr. Hearst , hnprossod by iho fro
quunt complaints of unjust oxacliom
practiced upon claimants by attorneys
tornoys and claim agents conceived tin
plan of establishing at Washington citj

which congroHB has made a provision tit

siring to associate in thu enterprise t

holoutod THIS Hun as the papoi
having the largest circulation among
the class of persons interested ,
und the arrangement has just
been concluded by which Tin :
Br.i : and the San Francisco Mxiunhm
will maintain a bureau in Washington
through which sill claimant * under the
laws above cited may , by complying witli
the conditions slated iu the announce'
mont elsewhere , have their claim'
promptly and faithfully attended tc

The purpobo of this arrangement it
to protect poi'bons having just
claims against the government from
the rapacity and extortion of
legal sharks. The abuses practiced by
this clas of lawyers at the nitional
capital upon unsuspecting claimants
have long demanded a remedy. For
tunes have boon made by unscrupulous
lawyers and claim agents , and although
their methods of plundering claimants ,
flagrantly carried on for years in prose
cuting pensions , luivo boon re
peatedly exposed , the sharks still
find victims and a profitable
business. The bureau established
by TUB BKK will enable a numerous
body of claimants to sacuro prompt , ofll-
cinnt and honest attention to their claims
with the certainty that they will bo re
quired to pay for the service only tlio
noccshary expenses. Persons having a
legitimate claim may fool assured that
it will receive intelligent and careful at
tention , that it will bo expedited as
rapidly as it is practicable to
do so , and that it will not
bo consumed in extortionate fees. Those
who have not good claims will bo so in
formed. The gentlemen connected w'itli
the claims bureau are thoroughly con
versant with the duties that will bo re
quired of them and will devote themselves -
selves constantly to their performance.
TIIK HKU expects that this enterprise
will bo appreciated by the thousands of
persons in Nebraska , Kansas , Iowa and
South Dakota \yho may have legiti
mate pension , Indian depredations , land ,
mining , patent or postal claims against
the government , and it promises all such
who may comply with the simple condi
tions necessary to membership in the
claims bureau association , that every
stipulation made in the announcement
elsewhere printed will bo faithfully car
ried out. The position and responsibil
ity of THK BKK and the San Franclaco
Examiner are an ample guarantee of
gooa faith , and all who avail themselves
of the arrangement they have entered
into can fool assured of receiving prompt
consideration and fair treatment.
The Now York Si i advises the dem
ocracy to look after Now York. That
journal , which is In the habit of seeing
facts and discerning tendencies moro
clearly than other democratic organs ,
does not attach much vr.luo to the Idea
that there is a hopeful outlook for the
democracy in the west by reason of the
third party movement. It tolls its party
Lhat there is no certainty of securing the
! l electoral votes of Kansas , Iowa , and
Nebraska , "but in the effort it would be
locessary to risk the loss of the state of
Mew \ork. " Those western states , it re-
narks , always hostile to democracy ,
"could only bo brought Into the demo
cratic column by concessions which would
n-ovo fatal to the party in every sane
mil conservative community. " Tlio
Situ urges that the democracy does not
iced for its candidate In 1892 the elec
toral votes of the extreme granger
stnto.s , and that to lay "sound and deep
.ho foundations for democratic success
n ISDii in Now Yorkis the first duty of
the domooraoy. "
Doubtless this is sound advice , and
Mirticularly so in vlow of the
act that the chances of the demo
cracy carrying Now Yoric in
1892 are likely to bo no bettor than they
were in 1888. Obviously the course of
the party in that state would bo ron-
lored absolutely Hopeless if it should
give any countenance to the financial
vagaries of the third party. But how
will the democracy lay sound and deep
the * foundations for success in the Km-
) ire state with the warring factions of
ts two aspirants for the presidency at
mo another's throat ? The Sun can
nirdly oxpoot a reconciliation of those bit
terly hostile elements while the loader of
either is in the field as a candidate ,
ind there is no probiblllty that one of
, hem will yield. Would the situation
bo materially Improved by going else-
vhoro for a candidate ? Could Gorman
) f Maryland , or Cumpb.'ll of Ohio , or
Cir.iy of Indiana , or Palmer of Illinois ,
ao liarmont/o the domojr.icy of Now
York as to enable it to lay sound and
deep the foundations for suee-jus In that
stater1 Probably not. No one of these
nen would be likely to oroato any
enthusiasm among the Now York
lomocnioy , or Indued with the
mrty anywhere outaldo of their
mnu-dlato constituency. The nomi
nation of either of these men would
Umojt cort-iinly linuro Now York to
he republicans. The nomination of
Cleveland or Hill , If there is not a radi
cal change from present conditions , will
nako the republican olvuieo of success
icnrly as good. Still there is much
greater possibility of the democracy
uarrytng New York next year than su-
uurlng the electoral votes of Kansas ,
owa and Nebraska , and as the stake in
ho Kmnlru state Is larger , it Is manl *
ostly the purl of wlbdom to tnaku the
play for It , nnd as mutters now stand
tlio democracy manifestly has adllllctilt
and unpromising task baforo It.

It Is not necessary for Tun Hun again
to express Its regret that bonds for pub
lic improvements will not bo voted until

There is hope , however , In the state
ment of the inavor b.iscd upon detailed

and accomplished. Ho places the co.st

A million dollars expended for labor
and material in Omaha at this time is n
valuable contribution to our circulating
medium. It will gro.itly add to the com
fort of hundreds of workingmen sadly in
need of employment and It will help
every retail merchant In the city. It will
bo a tonic whojo invigorating oll'oct will
be immediate and lasting.
The people have known In a general
way that there were a large number of
unfinished contracts but they did not
appreciate the amount of money in
volved in their completion. They are
impatient to see the graders , pavers ,
curbors and guttorers earning money and
improving tlio appearance of the city ,
The various branches of city govern
ment have boon calling each other hard
names because this work is not now
under way. The people demand
that thn shilly-shallying hhifting of
responsibility shall cease. There is
no reasonable excuse for the delay
which has already occurred and any
further neglect of their plain duty deserves -
serves the t-overost condemnation. The
board of public works is primarily to
blame. Lot it clear its skirts by doing
its full duty. The other branches of the
city government will then come in for
their share of criticism. The season is
one-third gone.Vo must not waste
any more time.
A I'llACl'IC.ir , Sf7fJrt/ST/O.V.
Kansas City is fooling the evil effects
of the reaction from her unexampled
prosperity. Times are dull as they tire
here , except that fie nervous exhaus
tion lias boon greater , and the sick city
responds to energetic treatment loss
readily. Nevertheless our down-river
neighbor is not asleep. Kansas City
has never boon somnolent. She is built
out of enterprise and lives and grows
upon this upbuilding olomont. She ,
like Omaha , has boon casting about for a
plan upon which her largo and snnll
property owners can unite in a grand ef
fort to help the city on to renewed pros
perity , and has not only adopted the
idea of our Real Estate and Property
Owners' Association , but has added a
feature which is commended to the at
tention of that organization.
The Kansas City association is a stock
company with a piid up capital of
$1,000,000. This capital is not to bo do
nated to manufacturing enterprises in
the way of bonuses , but is to \ > o invested
in them on behalf of the association.
Kuoh shareholder of the Kans is City or
ganization becomes uishareholder in such
manufacturing concerns as may bo in
duced to locate their plants in the city.
The association cannot contribute moro
than 50 per cent of the capit.il of such
manufactory and the manufaeturing
company is given the option" at any tlino
of purchasing the association stock at
par with 0 per cent interest.
The association will also interest itself
in securing donations of lands from
property owners. The lands go into the
common capital and nro a part of the as
sets of the concern benefited , the asso
ciation stock receiving its proportionate
benefits with the outside capital.
The Idea is a practical one and offers a
definite form of investment for those
anxious to see a return for their money ,
and rightly managed can bocomn a pow
erful moans of pushing the city's inter
ests. Cash in the strong box ,
whether it bo $1,000,000 or $100,000 ,
talks In moro persuasive tones
than advertisements or personal
letters to capitalists informing them of
the resources of the city. An associa
tion upon this plan is able to moot most
otVoctually that old question : "If tlio
chance is so good for making money out
of the proposed investment , why don't
you go into it yourself V"
Within the next thirty days four poli
tical party conventions will bo held in
Iowa , and four tickets will be placed ba
fore the voters. The ball will bo started
by the independents who convene at Dos
Molnos on the itrd inst. The prohibition
ists will mviot In the same city for a
similar purpose a woelc later. On the
21th the democrats get together at Ot-
tumwa , and finally on the 1st of July ,
Cedar Rapids will entertain about 1,000
delegates to the republican convention.
It was supposed when the Independent
call was issued that the managor.s would
make up a ticket upon which dickers
could bo undo with the domojr.its for a
fusion of interests. The Clnelmriti dec
larations for a third p irty , however ,
have changed the complexion of the con
vention very materially and as the oppo
nents of a third party movement among
local alliances are largely refusing to
send delegates it Is entirely probable
the mongrel crowd of ox-greenb ickors ,
Calamity Wellors , and walking dele
gates will carry the independents into
tlio Cincinnati departure. The demo
crats will therefore bo benefited only in
an indirect manner , If at all , Instoal of
The prohibition sentiment of Iowa and
the third party prohibitionist organiza
tion are by no means Identical. The
party numbers about fifteen hundred ,
most of whom will bo at their conven
tion. While the temperance question
will be a paramount issue in the cam
paign , the distinctly total nbjtinonco
party will not cut much of a figure ui >
loss It Is bracjd up by the literary and
personal solicitation campaign which
the New York Voici Is organl/.ing.

The ropubltchnA Hold the last ot tin
series of conventions. This of Itself Is a
striking fact , ' ' for Iowa has prior
to 188 ! ) boon 86'safely republican that
the old party generally set the patto n
for its old time onomy. The late con
vention Is wise In the present situation
and affords the opportunity to profit b >
the mistakes of those hold In the present
month. Although temporarily repulsed
and very nearly vanquished two years
ago , the party is not dead by any moans ,
but will make a bold foray and seek to
recover its lost ground.
The temperance Issue will In all prob
ability bo relegated to the local elections
and no vorv positive plank will appear
in either the republican or independent
platforms , [ t is not a question for state
officials , but must bo settled by tin
legislature , nnd therefore It is Hot in
consistent with the action of former
years to refer the subject to the county
conventions. T.tkon all In all , the pros
pect for a lively campaign is good , with
the parties do nearly matched in re
sources as to render the result extremely

country tint under the star spangled
banner the citizen and the alien may
worship God according to tbo dictates
of their own consciences , or may ques
tion or deny the existence of a supreme
ruler. There is absolute freedom of
conscience. It is not strange , therefore ,
that the press and people of America ,
both Protestant and Catholic , are irre
concilably opposed to the Lucerne
scheme for providing Catholic emi
grants with priests and schools of
their own language in parishes of their
own. Such priests to bo sent from the
old countries. It is not necessary to the
preservation of their faith and it opens
the way for a foreign Interference wholly
at variance with the American policy.

posed intermeddling of a foreign lioir-
archy with religious affairs of this coun

Tin : duties of the city physician or
sanitary commissioner should bo defined
accurately enough to remove all doubts
of their number'"iind ' extent. It is un
fair to leave hijn stranded at 2 o'clock a.
in. with an uncertainty as to his duty
staring him in the faeo on the one side
and a man dying ft-om a sudden injury
on the other. The ordinary individual
would fly to the relief of distress forth
with and settle th'o ' technical difficulties
at leisure , but tfi s is hardly to bo ex
pected from a physician who is paid but
82,000 n-year as'hond of the health do-
partmonl. Such nMllSmma is especially
trying when the physician believes that
another man J'H legally responsible for
the care of the case called to his atten
tion at this unseemly hour.
WITH the suspension of the publica
tion of the Altn California at S.ui Fran
cisco goes down the oldest newspaper
on the coast. It was started In the
days of the argonauts and for 30
veara was the favorite newspaper of San
Francisco. The Chronicle captured its
republican patronage and the Southern
Pacific made it a democratic newspaper ,
with John P. Irish , formerly of iowa , ns
its editor. It succeeded no bettor in the
democratic ranks than as a republican
organ , the Exumiwr outstripping it as
a newspaper. The railway company
wearied of carrying it and so it dies of
suspended animation or heart failure.
As a reminiscence it was interesting ,
but as a news purveyor it lias long since
been wholly useless.
