RKFKHHINO to" certain post-mortem discoveries of a somewhat sensational character in this city brings up the question : What sort of reputation would the physicians of Omaha obtain if every patient who dies under their treatment were examined by their Council Blulls brethren ? ENTJI.AND is now apparently in dead earnest for an amicable settlement of the Dohring sea dilllcultios. If her plr- ! liamont will act in time the seals of the disputed waters will go unmolested fern n year. This will probably increase the cost of honlbkln saequos , but it will aid greatly in preserving this important in dustry from destruction.

The fair-minded republicans , however , in the face of the democratic example In other states , doi-llnod to fol low their gerrymandering tactics and gave their enemies a ftilr hhwv in the apportionment. A SIT.TA sort of attempt at a dally newspaper published n special telegram from Omaha recently to the effect that Mr. K Uosowator , editor of TllK Ur.K , took out hl.s Until naturalization papers two days prior to his doiurturo for Ku- rope. A number of local newspapers have accepted the statement as a fact. To those nnd such others as may care to kttow the truth It may be of Interest to bo informed that Mr. llo.iowator uameto America with his parents when ho was but la years of ago ; that his father was iiaturalr/od In 1801 niut in 1SUI went to Enropo with passports Usuod by the state department betting forth the fact of his citizenship , nnd that Mr. Rosewater - water bus boon a citizen of the United Stitoa over since his " 1st birthday. run HHK's cnanr Attention Is Invited to the announcement mont elsewhere In our coin inns of ni 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 patent and postal laws. The proprletot 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 a bureau to prosecute all claims foi which congroHB has made a provision tit a nominal cost to the claimnntH , that IH simply what will cover the necessary u.XDonsos of the sorvi'-o rendered. DO' siring to associate in thu enterprise t newspaper in this section , Mr. Iloarsl 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 through the law olllcos of Tin : Bun at u moderate charge. 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. A.K ORGAN'S 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. TllK I'VttUO M'OUK , It Is not necessary for Tun Hun again to express Its regret that bonds for pub lic improvements will not bo voted until November. Wo shall bo obliged to wait and tttko our chances at a general elec tion with no certainty that the people will give public improvements enough attention at that tlmo to carry the bonds. There is hope , however , In the state ment of the inavor b.iscd upon detailed facts nnd figures furnished by tho-city engineer , that a very largo amount of public Improvement may bo undertaken and accomplished. Ho places the co.st of the work contemplated by unfinished contracts loft over from last year and that incident thereto at a round million dollars. 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" ui\ 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 by fusion. 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 domocruU will go into the tight with the ticket of two years ago mainly renomtnatod. 'ftjias back of it the prestige tigo of partial 'nnd ' unuxpootjd sue cess and will 1 " headed by Govornoi Bolc.s , whoso parsonal popularity will his pirty Is bol'iOvod to ba very groat. The domoer.ii pount upon the aiitt- liquor vote , andiltn the event of largo defections of indtipondunts and prohibi tionists from t o ropubllc.in fold may squeeze through. ' 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 problematical. AMIUIUA : Invites no religious antago nisms. As between sects site is abso lutely noutr.il. It is tlio glory of this 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. All the people of America will unite in bontimont with Archbishop Ireland in his patriotic protest against this pro posed intermeddling of a foreign lioir- archy with religious affairs of this coun try. . . 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. Russnu , B. HARRISON finds about as many thorns as roios in his bouquet of prominence as the son of the president. The fact is that the young man conducts himself with becoming dignity upon all occasions. The interviews sent out in which ho is placed in awkward attitudes are usually fakes. His partner in Now York is inclined to bank a trillo on their relationship , much to the younger IIar"ison's annoyance , but beyond his part ownership of the Judyc and Jf'runk c.sWe's and the foolish stuff which Mr. Arkoll gets Into these papers , Russell HarrisonVi public nnd private behavior are beyond adverse criticism , Ho does not got the credit , he deserves for his good soiibo und good judgment.
