In his eloquent address at the hoard

said : "Tho demand will BOOH come from

In Europe are verified at the completion

there will certainly bo u very muuh
larger Eurmmtin demand for American
coin than over before , In the presence
of threatening starvation , oven now the
outlook for millions of people , the
prejudice against the use of corn as
bread will give way. Tlio hungry

Hour in fcuillcicnt quantities to satisfy
their wants and unable to procure rye

that corn is unlit , for human food.
They will take It as a mat

to cat It , and when they
have done this there will bo created a

As lias boon slated heretofore , the
efforts thus made to Introduce corn Into
Huropo as food for the people have not
been encouragingly successful , It is
nuilo possible that these have not been
so thorough as could bo desired. A
comprehensive plan was outlined for
presenting at the last Paris exposition
the claims of.corn to the popular atten
tion , but it was not carried out , as the
design contemplated , and consequently
the immediate results did not repay the
labor and outlay involved in the under
taking. Possibly the way was opened
to future good results which the present
crop Hitiintion abroad will hasten. Prog
ress has been made within the past year
or two in extending the use of corn in
Great Brituin , but It iisis boon slow. It
cannot fail to bo hastened by Iho oxisl-
Some Iwo years ago Iho suggoslion
was made that the states of the corn
bolt unite in making a grand exhibit , or
perhaps more than ono , of that cereal
In Europe , in which the many methods
of preparing corn _ for food could bo
shown and foreign cooks instructed in
them. Such an exhibit in London and
another in Paris or Berlin , where all
the forms of corn bread , cakes , rolls and
oilier palatable and nutritrious dishes
to bo iniiuo of corn could bo supplied ,
would undoubtedly have a mosl bene
ficial result in educating Europeans
to a taato for corn and overcoming the
prejudice against that cereal. It is to
bo admitled that such a scheme may
appear tit first lliought to bo somewhat
impracticable , but it cannot bo said thai
it is absolutely incapable of accomplish
ment. Tlio chief dilllculty , and per
haps the only ono at all serious , would
bo to bocuro united aclion by the great
corn-producing states , but this ought to
At any rate , existing conditions seem
to give peculiar value and force to the
suggestion. The United Stales will
have Iho largest yield of corn Ihis year
in its history. Europe will wanl broad
and there will not bo wheat and rye
enough to supply the demand. The only
substitute is corn. There has never before
fore been so good an opportunity to
demonstrate the merits of that grain as
humnn food , nnd it should bo improved
to the lasting benefit of both consumers
iw iriiucirr WITH CANADA.
Within two months commissioners
representing the Canadian government
will bo in Washington for the purp'oso
of negotiating a treaty of reciprocity be
tween llio Uniled Slates and Canada.
It appears that the British minister at
Washington has not been idle regarding
this matter , but has boon anxiously en
deavoring to arrange a basis of "negotia
tion with Mr. Blalno , it is said with in
different success. According to a
report sent from Washington to
the capital of the Dominion , the
only encouragement the British minis-
lor has received from Secretary Blaine
is contained in the remark : "Well , lot
Canada fttalo how far she is willing lo
go and wo will consider the matter. "
There is no reason why the minister
should have expected anything more
definite or encouraging than this. It
will bo remembered that tlio late
premier of Canada was guilty of a gross
iironch of confidence in connection
with the initiatory steps in the
proposed negotiations in allowing
a public disclosure of correspondence in
tended to bo confidential between the
Lwo governments , and also that tlio lory
loaders misrepresented what had taken
place. In view of the = o oircumstanccb
Hie president and secretary of state
would show little regard for Iho dtgnilv
of thu government if they again put
themselves in a position where eon-
idencu might be violated and they mis-
rojircFonted , and il is entirely proper
thai they wait for the Canadian govern-
nenl lo submit its proposnlp.
If reports are trustworthy , the pres
ent premier is really anxious to ellect
some bert of reciprocity arrangement.
[ t is said that ho recently gent a leading
conservative politician to Washington
charged with the duly of repairing Iho
lamago that had boon allowed to bo
done by his predecessor , and to sccuro
nlluonce believed to have some potency
for promoting reciprocity negotiations ,
nit Gil is not stated that
there have boon any satisfactory
results from this mission. It is also at-
lounccd that the present Dominion government -
ornmont Is disposed to go somewhat
'arlhor than its original programme of
cciprocity , which contemplated little
nero than the free exchange of natural
products , but It would exclude from any
ilttn articles Imported into Canada in
argo quantities from England. It is
itirdly to bo doubted thai adherence lo
, hls would prove a serious and per-
: iaps insuperable obstacle to negotia
tions. But it is evident that the
sonllmenl of the present Dominion gov
ernment in this matter Is much more
liberal than that of Its predecessor , and
If It ho true thai II will propose equal
privileges to American and Canadian
grain laden vessels passing down the
St. Lawrence canals , and oiler to Ameri

Omaha will have- occasion to remem
ber August " 0 , 1801 , as n land mark In
her career of greatness. It marks the
auspicious beginning of nn enterprise
which promises JM-O.U results to her
business IntorostIl was distinguished
by n most important event the birth of
a great grain market.
Some of the doubters may desplso the
beginning because it seems small , per
haps in tholr eyes insignificant , but il Is
a beginning and no enterprise can become -
como great without a beginning. It Is
worth something to Iho business interests -
ests of Omaha lo have a cantor where
trading in farm products is posssiblo. it
is worth a great deal moro to concentrate
the grain and commission men in a sin
gle building and Interest thorn in a sin
gle direction. It is worth everything in
the beginning lo have an open board
where dealers al home and from abroad
may moot for Iradu.
No oilizon of Omaha or member of Iho
board of trade imagines for u moment
that a fiat grain market is possible.
livery reader knows that n commercial
center cannot bo created by a resolution
of a business organization. A market
cannot bo created hero until public
warehouses , private elevators , ( louring
and cereal mills and mall houses arc
opened. Wo cannot buy and s-oll grain
in Omaha as the dealers and speculators
buy and sell in other markets until wo
provide for the storage , consump
tion nnd roshipmcnl of grain al
Ihis point. Our grain dealers can
however , pending the development of
these elements of a market , buy and sell
on the Omaha board for the Chicago and
St. Louis markcls , and this is no small
business. Il is necessarily the begin
ning , and llio success attending dealings
of this character will effect the future
of Omaha as a grain center very mate
rially. It is for tlio future especially
thai wo all congratulate ourselves upon
the present outlook , because a successful
open board now means n great grain
business in the not verv distantfuture. .
CLAKIC WOODMAN , wlioso untimely
death is reported from Chicago , was a
man whom most people in Omaha know
either personally or by reputation. lie
has been a prominent figure in b.isincss
circles in Ihis cily for nearly a quartet *
of a century. Here he built up a largo
fortune , in tlio making of which ho also
contributed to the growth of Omaha. Ho
\\as a loyal man to his friends and busi
ness associates , a skilful manager of
largo interests , domestic in his tastes
and practical in'his ideas upon all sub
jects. Ho possessed and deserved tlio
respect and confidence of Iho commun
ity , and his death comes as a personal
grief to business and social circles in the
city. His lovelv homo in West End and
hjs mammoth linseed oil works on North
Seventeenth street are the most con
spicuous monuments to his enterprise
and successful career , but Ihoro are also
charities and contributions to public
movements which have never been her
alded , but are gratefully remembered.
His bereaved widow will have the sym
pathy of this entire city in her over
No enterprise promises bettor returns
in Omaha louay than the organization of
a grain elevator company which shall
operate under the now warehouse law
and receive grain for storatro upon
which warehouse receipts are to bo is
sued to bo used as collateral for advances
upon the stored grain. The profits of
such a company would bo remunerative
nnd it would groatlv assist in develop
ing a local market for/Nobraska grain.
The same company under another or
Iho same namp could also advance
money upon Iheso receipts and so real
ize storage fees in Iho elevator or ware
house and interest upon the money
loaned. The security would not only bo
absolutely perfect but the company en
gaged in the business would bo in con
trol of that , security as well as Iho re
ceipts issued against it. For a safe bus
iness venture there is nothing open to
Omaha capital superior lo ono .of Iho
character above described.
CITY is rejoicing over the

cures by establishing a plant at tlio
mouth of the Kaw. Omaha is not situ
ated within easy roach of the cotton bolt
and may not expect a cotton factory , but
she is tlio center of what will soon bo the
greatest sugar beet region in America
and ought to bestir herself to secure a
beet sugar factory and re Query repre

The now form of homo rule for Ireland , ns
defined by the hill framed by the Homo Hula
union , gives the Irish leglslnturo , which Is
called a "parliament , " the control of Internal
trndo nnd the power of endowing secular edu
cation. It also loaves the Irish parliament at
liberty to deal with too land as It pleases ,
Instead of rnsorvlng tlio ngrannn question to
the Imperial assembly nt Westminster. Hut
it Is la the machinery for preserving the
public po.ico that the most dcoislvo clmngo U
made. The Irish parliament may take over
the Dublin Metropolitan police nt once ln
stead of uftor an Interval of two years , and
If Is empowered to 'Millrcly disband tno con
stabulary In ilvo years , while on fourteen
days' notlco a corps may bo discharged In
nny district in which the Dublin executive
can sot up nn cfllclont substitute. Again , al
though the old members of the Judiciary nro
to keep tholr olllccs , nil the resident magis
trates may bo dismissed nt tbo bidding of the
Irish parliament. There nro to bo no peers ,
but the members of the upper house , or sen
ate , nro to bo elected on u property franchise ,
lliosennto'.s powers are by no moans co-or-
dlnato , for any of Its vetoes can bo over
ridden by the lower house upon tlio lapse of
a year after n general election. There Is no
doubt that the Home Hulo union bill would
have suppressed thu second chamber alto
gether but for the apprehension that lu the
absence of such n body the imperial parlia
ment might fool Justified In actively exorcis
ing n vote on Irish legislation. As
regards the unmoor of Irish members
to bo retained at Westminster , no clmngo
In the present quota Is mndo by Iho proposed
bill. Lord Salisbury , on the other hand , has
lately expressed a conviction that the repre
sentation of Ireland should bo reduced pro
portionality to her population. And Mr.
Gladstone has several times Indicated an
opinion that fewer than 10.1 Irish members
would sufllco at Westminster after the estab
lishment of a parliament in Dublin. The
authors of the now scheme retain the IrNh
members In tbo full strength fixed by thu act
of union , with the nvowoJ object of guaran
teeing Ireland under the now regime against
coercive Interference on the part of the Im
perial parliament. There Is no doubt that
this bill will bo incomparably moro accept
able to Irish nationalists than was that of
IS'SG. It Is hard to see bow oven Mr. Pnruoll ,
although ho Is now a predetermined critic of
Gladstonlau measures , could find fault with
It. It elves to the Irish legislature the con
trol 61 the resident magistracy , the power of
dealing with Internal trade and of endowing
secular education , the control ot the constab
ulary and of the land.
The Chinese emperor has Issued a decree
guaranteeing protection in China to foreign
missionaries , whoso function is already rec
ognized by treaty , and in this document reference -
eronco Is made to the "powerful outlaws"
who are stirring up discord among the na
tives. Governors of provinces are bidden to
arrest the rioters nnd quell local disorders.
The Tno-Plng rebellion , that lasted fourteen
years and was suppressed only by French
and English intervention , originated with
a man of humble origin. The present
outbreak is said to be devised by no
loss n person than the famous Ll
Hung Chang , whom General Grant coupled
with Bismarck as the greatest men ho
bad mot in his journey around the world.
This grcal ofllcor , who is viceroy of Potcbili ,
is a kinsman of the admiral of thu fleet ami
the viceroy of Canton , and tils adherents In
all parts of the empire are numerous and
powerful. Ho owes his hor.ors entirely to
the dynasty hu Is said to be now soaking to
overthrow , nnd his ago and physical feeble
ness almost preclude the irtoa of his leader
ship of n popular rebellion that would endan
ger his present powers and possessions with
no sccuro promise of ultimate uggratidi/o-
mcnt. As nn accomplished commentator has
suggested , ho is elevated nbovo the sphuro of
ordinary ambition , and Is bound by the
strongest tics to the throne. That tbcro Is
some potent Influence at work In fostering
this rebellion cannot , however , bo ques
tioned. It is aided by many secret societies ,
of long standing in China , nnd notably by tbo
Koagwuoi , nn nsbociatlon that enlists people
of all ranks , from governors of prov
inces to discharged soldiers , in embroiling
the present government with foreign nations
and so Improving the opportunities for suc
cessful revolt. The Kolagwhni's work Is
clearly dlscornablo in the outrages in the
Yamr-tso-Kidtig region , whora long drouths
have destroyed the crops nnd tno surviving
remnants or tno starved population nro
ready tor any excess. The prompt action of
the French naval commander at Kiuklnng
and the presence of European war ships at
other open ports have apparonty prevented
further attacks on resident , whites , and the
reinforcement of the American Aslfttlc
squadron oilers an additional safeguard to
Americans. It Is notaolo that LI Hung
Chang has so far offered no open opposition
to the Insurgents.
That Htissia has ground for nor supreme
sclf-roliunro nnd is at least as independent of
external support or friendship as any other
juropeun country is manifest from the
events of this.year. Gathering In her outly-
ng financial resources , shosoominglv invited
conflict with the money kings of financial
centers destined to ho disastrous to herself ,
tlut , not such was the result. The great exchanges -
changes were affected nnd values shaken ,
wliilo the vast resources of the east
ern emplro cnablod her to go on as
undisturbed us If she were first among
creditor countries Instead of u debtor. Fol-
owing the sharp financial movement , al once
a warning nnd a punishment to her oppon
ents , comes the grain o-Jict , which keeps a
euding food staple within her own borders
ind causing Instant Buffering and ombnrrass-
ncnt to Germany , her chlof customer and
lourost military rival. The rye eating ( Jor-
nan masses are troubled nnd no hut in the
smallest hamlet of Khinoland falls to reall/.o
low heavy Is the hand and how long the arm
of the great whlto czar. In contemplating
irnbublo war other countries may find them
selves lacking In food stores , but self-sus
taining Kimm can pile them up ul will.
