The farmers of Nebraska appear to bo

Nebraska has reason to look upon the
present situation with cnmplncancy , for
it is certain that she will grow a crop of
corn this year if any is grown in the
country , and the unfavorable conditions
which threaten the crop in other locali
ties is sure to send tha prlco up to a
handsome figure. Indeed , it has already
advanced and Is going up steadily. The
prospect is that this year's crop , even if
below the nvorago , will bo sufllclonl ,
With the largo quantity still hold by the
farmers from last yoar'fl handsome yield ,
to malcti this season n highly prosperous
ono. It is estimated Hint fully 30 per
cent of last year's corn Is still In the
hands of the farmers. It Is not con
trolled by speculators , but is very gun-
orally distributed about the state , and if
the market fulfills its present promise
this old corn , as well us the now , will
bring handsome returns to the farmers.
Ono of the satisfactory features of this
situation Is the fact that the old corn is
not all hold by the wealthy farmers.
The advantages to bo derived from ad
vanced prices will bo enjoyed by many
of the poorer men , who were nblo on ac
count of the largo ylold and good prices
last season to hold over a considerable
portion of their crop , .which now consti
tutes nn asset that must not bo over

dition of'tho farmers of Nebraska.
It is announced that Mr. Bland will
make no further efforts at this session
of congress to secure now legislation In
thointisiost of silver. Ilaving failed in
several attempts to advance the cause
of hh hobby , he appears to have con
cluded that it is a hopeless contest
against the combination of nnti-freo
coinage democrats and republicans , re
inforced by those democrats who , while
not unfriendly to free coinage , bcliovo
it to bo unoxpcdiont , from a party point
of view , to legislate regarding silver at
this time. The free silver loader in the
house has therefore concluded , so it is
reported , to drop the subject for this
The friends of free coinage certainly
cannot complain that Mr. Bland has not
been most loyal and faithful to the
cause. As soon as practicable after the
assembling of congress ho framed a bill
representing tholr demands and housed
every effort to got it before the house
for action. IIo encountered vigorous
opposition from members of his own
party who are 'hostile to free coinage ,
and some democrats whom ho had
counted among his supporters fulled
him when the time came for them to
go on record. But ho would still have
boon successful had it not boon for the
nearly solid vote of the republicans
against him. It was only neces
sary for the republicans opposed to free
coinage to have refrained fron : voting
In order to have enabled Mr. Bland to
cot his free coinage bill before the
house , and doubtless to have passed it ,
and there were republicans who advised
this course. The leaders of the minor
ity in the house , however , took the
view that it was their duty to stand by
their convictions and the policy of the
party and they voted against frco coinage -
ago legislation. There is probably no
one v , ho now doubts that this course
\fm > wise. It maintained a consistent
uttitudo on the part of the republicans
upon this qucbtlon , nnd as the contest
rcHultod it enabled iho small republican
minority of the house to jually claim
the credit of having effectually chocked
the silver agitation without in the least
relieving the democratic majority of
the charge of favoring the free and un
limited coinage of silver. The country
clearly understands the situation , and
it will give the republicans the credit of
having forced Mr. Bland togivoup the
ullvcr fight for this session.
It may not bo worth while to consider
whether the silver agitation will bo re
newed at the next session or not. At
any rate it is not a matter about which
there need bo any present anxiety. It
will depend very largely upon the re-
Bull of the presidential and congres
sional elections next November , though
In any event there nan bo no danger of
frco coinage becoming the policy of the
government within the next two yearn ,
for if a bill for this purpose were to pass
this congress at the next session Presi
dent Harrison would bo there to veto it.
In tlio meanwhile there will have boon
hold an international conference on
silver and the public mind will have boon
still further educated to the dangers of
free colnugo under prevailing condi
tions , so that it is reasonably prob.iblo
that after the present year the question
of frco suul unlimited silver coinage
will cease to bo a serious issuo. It is
undoubtedly a fact that a very largo
majority of the people uro opposed to It
now and the more the subject is intelli
gently dUcusscd the stronger will the
opposition become.
Plans for the now library and museum
building have bean submitted to the
library board and are said to have boon
Informally adopted. The designs con-
tonuilato a structure that will meet the
wants of the publio library for many
years but will In other respects fall far
short of a metropolitan library and mu
seum in Its exterior appearance.
Tho.plnns provide fora brick building
Bovcroly plain and lacking in the improa-
slvo style that publio buildings of this
class should possess.
The limited funds at tro disposal of
the library board are Bald to bo respon
sible for the restrictions upon the archi
tect to plain brick walls and omissions
of decorative features in the exterior ol
the struttturo. This J what might have
boon expected. It waa apparent from
the outset that 8100,000 was Insulllelont
for the erection of a strictly flroprool
metropolitan library building that would
bland comparison with buildings of this
class in the principal cities of Amorlci
and Europo. Anything short of such n
structure would tionrcoly bo justified in
view of the fact that the title to the
grounds makes the building revert to the
heirs of IhoRodf estate unless it la dedi
cated nnd maintained perpetually for
this purpose.
Now that the city proposes to proceed
with the erection of this building with
the limited moans at Us command , the
plans should bo designed on a scale that
will admit of enlargement and embel
lishment. In other words , the publio
library and museum ofOmiha should bo
a monumental building when it is com
pleted. It should bo a building to which
every citizen of Omaha oould point with
irldo , a building that would leave a
astlng Impression upon s'trangora nnd
vould advertise Omaha abroad by its
unique or classical design.
With Buch a plan , the money now at
our disposal could bo expended either
upon the main body or center of the which additions would bo
nado in duo time without marring the
design ; or wo should erect only ono wing
low , and extend the building when the
icccssary means are at our command to
complete It , either by an additional Issue
of bonds or by the bequests of publio-
splrltod citizens. To oroot a common-
> lace brick building on the Rood silo
vould bo a grave and costly blunder. If
Omaha doubles her population by the
end of Iho present decade , wo would bo
compelled as a matter ot local pride to
mil the building down and replace it
vith a structure commensurate with our
irotonslons and population. '
The French jury that has juat found
Mward P. Deacon of Boston guilty of
shooting M. Abolllo , with intent not to
cill but nioroly to wound , undoubtedly ro-
lectcd the general sentiment of the poole -
) lo of that country in respect to the
Ights of injured husbands in cases of
this kind. Mr. Deacon's sentence of ono
oar in prison will be doomed rather
severe than otherwise by Frenchmen
vho believe in killing as a cure for such
mvcttcos as those by which Abolllo
) rokeup Mr. Deacon's hfemo.
But the example in this notorious case
s very bad , and the approval or half-
joarted disapproval with which the re
sult of the trial seems to bo received by
nany even in this country will have a
> ad effect upon iiublio morals generally ,
and especially upon the minds of the
young. Such deliberate killing as that
of which Deacon was guilty is murder ,
and sophistry is wasted in trying to
malto it appear anything else. The
victim wan a villain , it is true , but there
is evidence enough that the woman was
\s bad as the man who was shot to death
jy her husband. At any rate the Idli
ng cannot be justified. The sentimen
tal tendency of modern juries in cases
of this nature encourages disregard of
, ho majesty of the law. American
uries are perhaps little bettor than the
? ronch in this respect. In numerous
cases of like nature in this country
uricB have found verdicts of acquittal
upon some such absurd ground as that
of momentary insanity. Publio senti
ment needs bracing up and not relaxing
upon iho question of premeditated kill
ing. _ . . _ . . _ _ . _ . _ , _ _ _
A OIIUAT deal of the usual locicing-
thc-door-aftor-tho-horse-is-stolon philos
ophy is being indulged in juat nowr rola-
ivo to the floods , but there is at least
sound sense in a suggo'stion that the
ovee system bo abandoned. The ditch
system might bo the proper plan. In
the Hoods of the past two weeks the im
practicability of the levee system has
jcon pretty thoroughly shown. It is at
best a very expensive and uncertain
moans of protection against the upris
ing and outbursting of the great stream
flowing beside it. On the other hand ,
wherever It was possible to deflect the
course of the stream or the overflow of
it into sloughs or ditches at ono or both
sides of the main channel of the river ,
that plan has succeeded admirably. . In
some districts , notably at Now Orleans ,
It ia impossible to construct those
ditches , for there is no room for them.
But in almost every other place the
ditch system would seem to bo practi
cable and loss oxpcnsiva than the levee
plan. The idea ia that if the river is
going to overflow lot it overflow , but
lot a place bo prepared for the water.
A largo number of those ditches could
be constructed at intervals along the
banks of the river and in times of Hood
the water would flow into thorn and
thus relieve the pressure above and
below them. Certainly this plan ap
peals to reason and it demands nn in
vestigation to thoroughly test its prac
Tun figures given in THE SUNDAY
BKU , showing the steadily advancing
prlco of real estate in Omaha , were ro-
assuring. Perhaps no other city in the
west could make a more favorable ex
hibit , and it furnishes a very conclusive
answer to the croakers regarding
Omaha. It Is well to remember , ho\v-
ever , that in order to maintain this
kind of prosperity population and busi
ness must bo attracted to the city , and
an essential prerequisite to this is bettor
railroad facilities. When tha railroads
which should bring tribute from nil
quarters to Omaha center in tlio city
there will have been secured ono of the
most powerful aids to its progress. Had
Omaha been treated justly in this re
spect its population would now bo double
what It IB and its business fourfold. An
opportunity is again presented to secure
tnis essential aid to our advancement
and prosperity and It must not bo lost.
A YKAil ago It was positively assorted
that the city hall would bo ready for oo-
oupancy no later than the 1st of Janu
ary , 1892. Now wo are told that tlio
finishing touches will bo puc on before
the 1st of September. But the probabil
ities are that the finishing will tlrizzlo
along until the 1st of January , 1893with
a chnnoo of some essential features re

this time.

NEW Youif , May 2. ! . A Herald reporter
asked Archbishop Corrlcan last night what
ho r.ired to say of the Interview had with
Archbishop Ireland in Homo on Saturday.
The archbishop road thodispatch from Homo
carefully and then dictated tbo following
reply :
"In reply to your question I have to say
that the views of the archbishop of St. Paul
and mysL'lf are not so burd to bo reconciled ,
provided confusion of terms bo avoided. By
the Falrbault system ono may understand
cither the general theory of secularizing pa
rochial schools , or the particular expedient
adopted in the special cases of Falrbault and
Sttlhvator. The cablegram road by mo in
Albany used tbo phrase la the former sense.
Archbishop Ireland uses it In tbo latter. I
bavo never , for an instant , maintained that
the Falrbault plan , in this restricted Konso , {
was condemned ; on the contrary I always
declared it was tolerated nothing moro.
The larger question of the provision to bo
made In general for Catholic children who ,
for whatever reason , do not uttond Catholic
schools , and who nro now attending tbo pub
lic schools , has not yet been'decided and is
to bo considered in tbo mooting of the arch
bishops nsxt October. It is proper to boar
In mind that the L'nlrlMUlt plan , according
to tbo definition given by Archbishop Ira-
land himself , publUhoa December 14 , IbOl ,
moans the handing over of a Catholic school ,
fit In all respects to bo put on a line with
publio schools , to the board of education.
Ills clan , therefore , if this dollnitlon bo ad
lie red to. does not nlTect the 1,500,1)00 ) Calho-
llo children who are not found today in
schools of tboir own faith. "
