TUB SUOOTIKO OF
The labor trouble nt llomostond has
been characterized by nnothor tragic
occurrence which every friend of law
nnd order will profoundly doploro. The
nttomptcd assassination of 11. C. Prick ,
ho manager of the Cnrnoglo company ,
adds n chapter to the history of the
nlrcudy unfortunate conflict between
hnt company nnd Its oraployos which
vlll comtniind n. deeper interest than
nny thnt hua gone before.
This most untoward event should bo
considered by nil poroons with Uio greatest -
est possible freedom from pnsslon nnd
the spirit of resentment. Those who
miiy bo presumed to nnturnlly sympa
thise with the polloy of the CarncRlo
company should not bo too ready to luy
the responsibility for the murderous
deed of Borkrrnn upon the men who
uivo n contiovorsy with the company.

On the other hand , it will bo most un
wise for these interested in or in sym-
mthy with the cause of organized labor
, o approve of or attempt to justify this
crime. The policy and the duty of or
ganized labor everywhere , not only at
[ lomestead but in all partd ot thooun -
try. is to unqualifiedly condemn the nt-
tomutcd assassination. The working-
inen of the country could make no
jrnvor mistake than to manifest any
sympathy with Juch a deed as Mint of
Borknmn , aud wo do not hesitate to
predict that they wi 1 treat it as it
should bo treated by law-ruspeeting
Ameiican citizens , who do not desire to
see intioduced into this country Russian
methods of vengeance.
At this writing Uio facts at hand re
garding this doplornblo affair are
meager. An accurate judgment can bo
farmed only when they are all known ,
and then will bo time enough to con
sider what lessons the tragic occurenco
conveys. _ _ _ _ _ _ _

The Chautauqua idea has boon intro
duced in the penitentiary nt Lincoln
with results that are extremely gratifying - ,
ing to nil who fool an interest in the
moral and intellectual improvement of
the criminal class. The prime object
of penal institutions is the punishment
und rcstaint of criminals to the end thai
society may be protected , but it is clear
thnt.any measure by which convicts
may bo reformed and their numb'or di
minished will result in moro permanent
Benefits to society than can possibly
como from forcible restraint. This is
the view taken by these who are respon
sible for the successful ellort that hns
boon made to establish a Clmutauqua
course iu the state institution af Cincoln.
It appears that ever sixty of the inmates
of tlio penitentiary have recently com
pleted a year's courtio of systematic
reading and study and that they have
thorobv acquired not only useful knowl
edge but now views of life that will bo
certain to in lluonco their future conduct.
It is said that ono man who was recently
released from the penitentiary upon the
expiration of his torrn has already in
duced sixteen of his former boon com
panions to join him in a Cbautnuqua
course of study. The friends of this
movement say thnt Governor Boyd hns
promised to recommend in his next rocs-
saero the establishment of a school in the
penitentiary , nnd although It is antici
pated that this will meet with opposi
tion it is believed that the legislature
can bo induced to favor it.
Measures for the reformation of in
mates of penal institutions hnvo often
boon tried with varying degrees of suc
cess. Many people believe that they
are entirely useless and that it is a sheer
waste of philanthropic endeavor to try
to eradicate the criminal tendencies of a
convict. Out facts speak for themselves ,
nnd if the Chautiiuqna Idea tins done all
that is claimed for it in the penitentiary
at Lincoln it is evident that society is
n , gainer. The inlluonco of books is
powerful. Education is a deadly foe to
crime , as a general rule , notwithstand
ing that Bomo men of learning nro the
most dangerous rascals. The Chautau-
quu plan hns many elements of ad
vantage over any other for enlisting the
interest nnd enthusiasm of prison in
mates , and it is by no means unreasona
ble to suppose that at least n small per
centage of these IT ho embrace the edu
cational opportunities offered them will
go out into the world again with im
proved tastes nnd good purposes. The
intellectual improvement of tlio criminal
classes will naturally go hand in hand
with their moral improvement , and the
logical result will bo the improvement
of society at largo.
The present congress ought to do
something for the bettor protection ol
the forests in the public domain. This
important matter has boon too long nog-
loctud , or given inadequate attention ,
to the very serious loss of the govern
ment and the people , The senate com
mittee on agriculture aiid forestry has
reported a bill whioh has boon very
carefully drawn , intended to provide
the necobsary protection , afid in ordoi
the hotter to accomplish this It proposes
co-operation between the federal am
state governments. There has not been
a session of congress In u qirirtor of a
century , or perhaps for u Ion gcr period
at which this subject has not been pro
Bontocl in the reports ol the Hocrotary o
the interior and In bills , but , while
there has boon a great deal of ioglsla
lion relating to forest preservation , none
of it has fully met the requirements.
The bill reported to the senate is b }
far the mo.it practical nnd comprehen
sive measure over presented to congress
and it would bo well if it could be actoi
upon ut the present nessiou of congress
0 that Its provlfclons might go into
effect as soon as possible. It is pro-
umod that everybody who has any in-
olligont ideas on the subject concedes
the importance of protecting the forests
igalnst the rapid destructive nponclos
that now assail them. Unless this is
lone It cannot bo many years before the
orcsts in the public domain are wiped
out , and as those in private control are
rapidly disappearing the country is in
danger of being denuded of timber with-
n half a century. This is certainly an
alarming prospect from every point of
view , and ono that aught to load con-
rcss not lo longer dally with the mater -
, or , but past experience does not oncQiir-
ago the hope that it will bo so. The
average politician who gets Into con-
; ross seems uttorally incapable of Ink-
ng any interest In a practical question
of such general nnd far-reaching concern -
corn , however zealous ho may bo in on-
Icavorlng to secure an appropriation for
1 crook or unnavlgablo river in his dis
trict. It is to bo hoped the senate com-
nlttqo on agriculture and forestry will
irgo this measure and if It bo possible
secure notion upon it at tliu present ses
sion. There is no good reason why this
should not be done , since the subject
docs not require extended discussion.

The industrial growth of Nebraska
within the last ton years has boon nolo-
ivorthy. Every year has boon marked
jy progress and the industrial possibili' .
tloa of the stale h ivo attracted wider
public attention. Until within a few
, 'oars Nebraska was thought of only as
, great agricultural state , but an in-
cstigation of its manufacturing condi
tions has demonstrated that in some respects -
spocts these are unsurpassed. The ex
position of Nebraska manufactures in
Omaha last month g > ivo evidence of a
dovulopmont In this direction which
'cw ' of our own people had before any
doa of und which served to create a
widely different vi-jw of the industrial
capabilities of Nebraska thau had pre
viously boon entertained.
A recent contribution to a Chicago
journal regarding the industrial ad
vantages of Nebraska manes a coinpro-
lonslvo statement of what has boon
iccomplished and what is possible of
ittainmonLjn manufacturing enterprises
in this BtUo. : The writer points out
that canning factories have hero the
llnest vegetables at the lowest cost , and
that the s ime Is rapidly becoming true
of fruits. According to this authority ,
who has evidently given most careful
investigation to the situation , cream-
erics , cheese factories , pickle factories ,
starch factories , distilleries , soap works
and a number of other lines which oni-
ploy crude raw materials founfl in
abundance right hero in their neigh
borhoods , actually pay enough loss for
their working stock to make a good
profit on the active capital invested
when compared with loss favorably lo-
caied concerns in what have hitherto
been the manufacturing centers of the
country. In the case of flouring and
corcal mills a more conspicuous example
of prosperity has boon dh'own , and it
may bo incidentally remarked that
Hour making has become ono of the most
import uit and successful industries of
the state. The conversion of the minor
grains into various forin3 of broads tuffs
Is being rapidly developed , and with
marked success. Prepared oats and
barley are being regularly ahippod
direct to foreign countries from Nebraska
mills without iho intervention of any
middle men or brokers. The manu
facture of beoi sugar has become an im
portant industry which , with proper
encouragement , will in a few years bo
tt great resource of wealth to the state.
But the industrial progress of Ne
braska does not depend wholly upon the
raw materials produced in the state.
Wood , iron and other raw materials are
brought into Nebraska at a moderate
cost , and they can bo worked up hero
almost as cheaply as at the most
favored points. It' is a fact not gener
ally understood that fuel for manufac
turing purposes is cheap in Nebraska ,
the prices of coal ranging from $1 25 to
$1.75 per ton. It is important to con
sider , also , that a grout market for
manufactured products is right at tlio
doors of the Nebraska manufacturers.
A territory embracing 4,000,000 inhabi
tants Is tributary to the manufacturers
of this state ana it is steadily growing.
Such facts arn certainly reassuring , and
they ought to bo especially BO to the
people of Omaha , since in thn industrial
development of the state this city should
have the largest shore. Th6 indications
are most favorable to splendid crops in
Nebraska this year. If this bo realized
the state ought to Imvo a rapid growth
iu the next few years. The outlook for
the contiguous territory Is no ices favor
able. Such a condition of affairs ought
to bo potent in inviting Investments in

There are few questions of' greater
public interest than that which relates
to homicide , and the bulletin upon this
subject Usuod by the consuu bureau Is
therefore of real value. It appears that
of the 82,329 prisoners in the United
States Juno 1 , 1HU ! ) , the number charged
with homicide was 7,380 Of this num
ber , omitting 83 who wore charged with
double crimes , 0,0')8 wore men and UO , ' )

white and 2.7UO wore negroes , 95 Chi

1.-12.5 whites 8,167 were born in this
country , 1,218 were foreign-born , and
the birthplace of 55 is unknown. Moro
than one-half of the foreign-born whites
are unhaturalizod and loss than one-
llfth can speak Iho English language.
The occupations of 0,51G of iho.se

lopulntton is only 21.80 per cent. The
explanation of this lies in the fact that a
majority of the homicide cases reported
in 18SO are included in the present ro-
| iort , owing to the long terms for which
, ho persons convicted are imprisoned.
The executions reported by ahorllTs
for 1889 were 150 , of which 91 were in
the south Atlantic and south central di
visions , and in those divisions also oc
curred 01 of the 117 lynohlngs reported.
There is nothing in this report to
show an increase in the crime of homi
cide in the United States , but the basis
upon which the llguros are compiled
seems to bodofuctivoand unsatisfactory.
The nuiribor of convictions during the
, ast ton years would bo interesting and
valuable for purposes of comparison , but
wo have only the number of persons
in coniinomont under sentence for homi
cide. But the reader will bo able to
niako some comparisons and deductions
from the figures given. Ono of tlio
most interesting facts revealed by the
report is that 94 of the 117 lyiichings
occurred in the southern states. When
the ratio of lynchlngs to population is
considered , it will bo seen that the
south has a monopoly in this lino.
naixaixa CANADA TO TERMS.
The bill to enforce reciprocal com
mercial arrangements bdtwoon the
United States and Canada has passed
both houses of congress , and inasmuch
as thin legislation was recommended by
the president there can bo 510 doubt ro-
gat ding the executive approval. The
measure provides , that when the presi
dent is satisfied 'fchat the passage
through any canal or , lock -connected
with the navigation .of the St. Law
rence river , tho. great lakes or the
waterways connecting the same , of any
vessel of the United. States , or of car-
joes or passenger's" In transit to any port
to the United StKtos , is prohibltod'or
made dllllcult or burdensome by the im
position of tolls oVcJothorwiso which ho
shall deem to bafrcciprocally unjust or
unreasonable , ho. ijfall have the power
to suspend thor right of free passage
through the St. Mary's Fall's canal , so
far as It 'Volutes to the subjects ot the
government discrhiiihaitng , ngaiiiBt the
United States. ;
In effect this bill will moot an imme
diate necessity , and it fs' plainly intended
for immediate enforcement. The con
ditions described now exist and have
existed for a long time , and it is pro
posed by the president and by congress
that they shall cease to exist or else the
Canadians must pay a penalty. All
efforts to induce the Canadian govern
ment to live up to the pledges which it
made in the treaty of 1871 have failed.
The discrimination complained of still
continues , and it is plainly the Canadian
policy to continue It as long as the
United States will stand it. American
vessels bound to American ports are
compelled to pay tolls greatly in OXCORS
of these charged' to Canadian vessels
passing through the Welland ship canal.
The object of this is to promote the
trrain trade of Montreal , and other
Canadian interests , at the expense of
American interests. President Harrison
risen has called attention to this subject
in two messages to congress lately , and
now the whole country is beginning to
take an interest in it The action of
congress was prompt and the president
will undoubtedly give his immediate
approval to the measure.
As Tim BIJK showed In a recent
article on this subject the question is
really of loss importance from a prac
tical point of view than by reason of the
important principle involved. The
Canadian government is deliberately
violating treaty obligations which it
assumed in consideration of valuable
privileges conceded by this government.
The United States has kept Its pledges
in letter and spirit and now that it is
found useless to appeal to Canadian
honor it is proposed that other moans
shall bo tried.
Other bills more stringent in their
terms are pending and if the ono passed
proves ineffectual . they will no doubt
become laws. Ono'of these proposes the
cutting oil of tp- ) | valuable privileges
now enjoyed by yiOj Canadians of ship
ping goods through the United States
in bond without" < ho payment of duty
and imposing 'ilf&criininating ' duties
against Eut'opoanuand Chinese imports
entering the Unlt jl States via Canada.
Whether the ; Enforcement of the
retaliation act will bo looked upon as
an abrogation of tjifty treaty or not is yet
to bo seen. Howqver undesirable such
a result mlcrht bo ? it is evident that this
country cannot u rd to anuriHco ita
right and its dignity to the extent of
quietly Bubmittlhf/ flagrant treaty
violations by Gu da. All thr.t the
United States asku'is fair play. If treaty
obligations are "of/no / force in Canada
there is no reason for a longer con
tinuance on our part of the favors
granted In consideration of these obllga-

Although the present house of ropro-
Bontatlve's has made u very decided de
parture from the liberal policy of the
preceding two congresses regarding the
navy , the country Js tq be congratulated
upon the reversal of its unwUo decision
against the naval review appropriation
and the new battleship. It would have
boon a very grave mistake , for which the
natlou would have suffered humiliation
in the opinion of the world , to have
abandoned the naval review which will
) oono of the features of next year's cole-
jrrvtlon of the discovery of America.-
All the nations having a navy have
jcon asked to join vts In this nautical
imgcant , as a specially appropriate csro-
inony In honor ot the great voyage of
Columbus , and moat of them have signi
fied their intention to do so. To aban
don this for the paltry consideration of
saving $50,000 would subject the country
to the ridicule and contempt of every
other nation , and might have a dam
aging clluot upon the World's ' fair so far
ns the contributions and tlio Interest of
other countries are concerned. Such a
demonstration cannot bo made without
coating some money , but the expense
will bo small in proportion to the mag
nificence of the affair and the moral in
lluonco it will oxort. The appropriate'
ness of the proposed display is unques
tionable , nnd besides it willenable us to
give the World an object lesson as to our
naval strength that moy have great
It Is hardly loss a matter of congratu
lation that the house receded from Its
llrst position of hostility loan appropria
tion for a battl6ship. That body , disro-
nrdlng wholly the recommendations of
the secretary of the navy , had voted to
contribute only ono now vessel to the
navy , which was to bo a cruiser of the
best typo. The senate voted for a num-
lor of now vessels , according to the
suggestions of the Navy department , but
In the dual conference of the two houses
a compromise was reached which insures
the construction of ono battleship , which
[ t is contemplated shall bo ono of the
most formidable war vessels afloat and
Is specially Intended for harbor defense.
The credit of having secured these concessions -
cessions from an unwilling house ,
anxious to make political capital at any
sacrifice of the public Interests , is almost
wholly duo to the firm stand taken by
the senate in opposition to the policy of
practically abandoning tho'construction
of a navvi A naval review next year is
now assured upon a scale which will bo
creditable to the nation , and tlio govern
ment will not halt in the now popular
work of building up a navy adequate for
protection and defense.
Ari'itoVAi. from political opponents is
always of some value. The Now York

dicial appointments have been , on the

selection of Mr. Goorjro Shiras of Penn

death of Mr. Justice Bradley will bo
generally accepted as. ono that Is likely
to justify itself. " The Sun says that "it

and other democratic journals of influ
ence are of the same opinion. The
