11IK HKt'UnLlCAX ATTITUDE ,
Senator Sharman said in a recent in *
tervlow , in which ho announced thnt ho
would vote for the repeal of the silver
purchase clause of the law thnt boars
his name , thnt ho had informed the
president and the secretary of the
treasury thnt ho will stand with them
for a sound , safe , stable currency.
Other prominent republicans have given
n like assurance. Some time ago Sen
ator Hoar of Massachusetts , in nil ad
dress before the Commercial club of Bos
ton , Said in reference to the republican
attitude : ' 'Mr. Cleveland's administra
tion will find no factious opposition. Wo
utand by our principles. Wo do not
for a moment admit that great ques
tions of justice or of expediency can bo
settled in a single year , or can bo deter
mined by a single show of hands. But
wo will stay and support the arm of the
president of the United States in all
honest and lawful ways. " Referring to
the question of sound money the Massa
chusetts senator , who has the right to
speak for his party , further said : ' 'The
president and the secretary of the treas
ury should flnd , and I bellovo
will flnd , no stronger support
and no safer counsel on this
most Important subject than among
the leaders of the party with whom they
differ politically. " Those utterances
have been approved by the republican
press of the country and they roprcsont
the sentiment of the masses of the party.
It is not from the republican. : ! in congress - '
gross that the administration will en
counter opposition or obstruction to its
efforts to improve the financial situation
and to place the currency on a
sound and safe , bails. Tno men
who are threatening to antagonize
the policy of the president ro-
g.itdlng silver , and If possible
to dofoa' It , are members of the admin *
istraUon party. The most laborious and
dilllcilt task which the administration
ha ? had thus far is that of endeavoring
to c wort democrats to its financial
vlo vs. A As was suid by Senator Sher
man in the interview already referred
to , Mr. Cleveland , in opposing silver , Is
fighting throe-fourths of Ills party.
Nobody knows this bettor than the
president himself , and while the costly
object lesson of distress and panic 1ms
doubtless influenced some members of
the administration party to fall
into line with it regarding silver ,
the policy it proposes cannot bo
successful in cither the house or the
senate without republican support. It
is to tlio republicans in congress that
the administration must look to sustain
its olloi-ts to restore confidence by plac
ing the currency on a sound , safe and
stab'o ' basis. It is fortunate for the
country tliat the democratic majority is
not M great in the present congress as
in the last , when a motion to consider
the repeal of the silver purchase law
was defeated in a house overwhelmingly
democratic by a vote of 143 ayes to 152
noos 107 democratic votes being re
corded airainst repeal.
There is every reason to expect that
a largo majirity of the republicans in
the Fifty-third congroas will bo found in
favor of the repeal of the silver pur
chase act , or at any rate the vital elnuso
of it which roiuires the treasury to buy
monthly 4,500,000 , , ounces of bilvor , and
that they will so vote. But they will
not support as a condition of repeal the
removal of the tax on state bank issue.- ! ,
which It is understood the administra-
tion'is prepared to favor , and thus open
the way for a restoration of the old state
wildcat money. Such a remedy would
bo worse than the disease , and if
the i arty in control of the gov
ernment can o'.Tor . or accept no
other and bettor plan for sup
plying a currency the republicans in
congress will bo justified in opposing
any change. The republican party has
always stood firmly for a sound and
stable currency. During the period in
which it controlled the financial policy
of the country wo have had such a cur
rency. Its attitude in this respect has
not changed , and the party can be de
pended upon to keep its financial record
unimpaired and untarnished.
A VUID.lllClS ACCWVNTH.
The annual recurrence qf Independ
ence day brings with it a series of dis
tressing accidents resulting from negligence -
gonco for which no possible excuse canOe
Oo olTercd. Tlio number of fatal catas
trophes this year has boon marked
throughout the whole country. In
Omaha it 1ms been particularly large
and indicates a spirit of recklessness
which is dangerous to life and property.
It is impossible for any rational person
to view this incalculable loss as alto
gether unavoidable. While It is per
haps true that accidents will often hap
pen in spite of the greatest precaution ,
the exorcise of a little prudence or com
mon BOIISO on tlio part of these celebrat
ing the Fourth would remove the cause :
of many a calamity.
There are numerous ways for a man
to show his joy at the birth of the ro
public. , Some of .these . are reasonable
and appropriate. Others are sensolus :
and almost criminally culpable. Espc-
uially in largo cities do wo lind that tin
density of population and the proximity
of houses to ono another demand tha
some restrictions bo placed upon the un
limited license to sot of ! fireworks. Cor
lain pyrotechnic displays are altogethei
harmless in themselves and if conductet
b competent persons can occasion in
Morions objections , But to allow the in
discriminate use of loaded firearms , ti
entrust cannon crackers to small boyj
to tcatter firebrands in the midst o
frame buildings is simply inviting nc
cident and ought to he suppressed by tin
city authorities. The latter have ainpl
power vested in thorn for this purpos
by the ordinances now in force in thi
city. Section 29 of chapter 42 roads :
If any person shall unnecessarily di :
charge any firearm , or shoot off any nr
cracker , or other fireworks , or shall light o
throw any lire ball or cracker In said citj
without permission of the mayor , such poi
sou so doing ahull , on conviction thereof , b
lined in any sum not exceeding $30. Th
city council may by resolution sui pond th
operation of the alidvo provision of this so <
lion on the Fourth of July or any other da
of public rejoicing.
No one has hoard of any ono applyin
to the mayor for permission to make
display of fireworks. No ono has see
any resolution of the city council au ;
pending thin ordinance for the Fourth i
July Just passed. Paoplo have simply
assumed that no such regulation existed
and the police authorities have utterly
failed to carry out its provisions. It
may be Into to call nttontton to this fact
nt the nrosent moment after the acci
dents hnvo occurred. Yet It is well thnt
the responsibility should bo placed
where it belongs. The counc.il should
never suspend that pnrt of the ordinance
relating to the discharge of firearms ,
and they should call upon the police to
explain why they hnvo not nrrostcd nil
who have unnecessarily fired guns or ro-
volvors. Only in this way can they bo
brought to n HCIISO of duty and induced
to prevent the useless loss of life in the
The features in connection with the
celebration of the anniversary of inde
pendence by the Tammany society which
will attract most attention are the epis
tolary utterance * of President Cleveland
and Senator Hill. As everybody knows
there is no fooling of personal cordiality
botwcon these distinguished democratic
loaders , and it has boon quite generally
understood that there Is little harmony
In tholr views as to the policies which
the party should adopt , and particularly
thn financial policy. Some light upon
this may bo gained by a carctul reading
of the letter of Senator Hill.
The letter of Mr. Cleveland is not very
striking. It is brief for such an occasion
and seems rather perfunctory. What it
says is sufllclently well said , but it lacks
the spirit and virility to make a strong
impression. It Is somewhat platitudin
ous , and there is absent from it anything
like a timely keynote , such as it" would
seem the existing conditions should have
inspired. But Mr. Cleveland is not in
very hearty sympathy with Tammany
and besides ho has a grant deal to occupy
his attention , considerations which -will
sufficiently pxplain why ho did not make
his contribution to the literature of In
dependence day moro elaborate and
impressive. The letter of Senator Hill
U not much moro extended , but it Is
very much moro pointed and vigorous.
It really contains something in tlio nature -
turo of a "keynote , " and It is ono that
.will strike'melodiously upon the oar of
the president. No reading botwcon the
lines of the senator's loiter is necessary
to discover that ho intended to rebuke
the president tor not having sooner seen
the supreme importance of the finan
cial question and for having soughtj
until the realization of its pre
cedence was forced upon him , to subord
inate it to the tariff. Neither can there
bo any doubt of the purpose of Senator
Hill to discredit the policy of the ad
ministration regarding silver. Ho
plainly implies that that policy is ono of
expediency only , and that it does not
contemplate the establishment of a
prominent financial system. Ho in
effect characterizes it as weak and vaccil-
luting. The senator leaves no doubt as
to his position , nnd indeed it has boon
known for pome time. Ho is in favor of
frco bimetallic coinage. Ho would re
turn tov"tho sound principles of our
fathers" without any "temporary ex
pedients and questionable compromises , "
which moans that ho would have gold
and silver coined at the mints on equal
Senator Hill in ono of the democrats
in congress whom the administration
has to fear. Ho will vote for the repeal
of the Sherman act , but ho will insist
that in abandoning the purchase of sil
ver by the government there shall bo
legislation looking to giving that metal
a larger recognition in the money of the
country. Ho is to be reckoned among
the firmest and most uncompromising
champions of free coinage and as such
ho is very likely to prove troubfosomo
to the administration. The letter of
Senator Hill to Tammany will not bo
read by Mr. Cleveland with , , unmixed
President Andrews of Brown uni
versity , ono of the recognized authori
ties in monetary matters and an ardent
advocate of international bimetallism ,
has had the boldness to oppose the free
and unlimited coinage of silver in Colorado
rado itself , the very stronghold of the
sllvoritos. Probidont Andrews is a dole-
pate to the international monetary conference -
foronco and worked lutrd last winter to
induce the representatives of the Euro
pean countries to come to some agree
ment with the United States respecting
the coinage lawn. But he has no sym
pathy for the movement which seeks to
hnvo this country attempt to support
the burden of silver depreciation alone
and unaided. The adoption of free
coinage would of coin-so drive gold
to a premium and practically
pluco us upon a silver basis.
Once on a silver basis , the United
States , ho thinks , would become the
leader of tlio great silver using nations ,
but ut the Hiuno time would bo still further
ther- separated from commerce with the
countries of continental Kuropo. The
gain would bo problematical ; the loss in
As a consequence , President Andrews ,
in this Colorado Springs address of July
4 , disparages any attempt to secure u
free eoinugo law at present and returns
to his first choice , namely , Inter
national bimetallism. To sec-tiro this ,
ho wants the immediate repeal ol
the Shormau silver purchase law in
order to compel the European na
tions to como around to his way of think
ing. ' 'By ' dropping silver for the time
being and joining in the struggle for
gold , " ho says , "wo shall precipitate it !
Kuropo another full of prices so ag
gravated that the most obdurate
bunker of Lombard street will
have to admit that gold can
not bo taken us the solo Internationa'
money. " This might sound very wol !
coming from some ono other than PI-OB !
dent And rows , but it is not qulto s <
charitable as wo would bo led to oxpco
from a doctor of divinity and the heat
of a great university. If such an nggra
vatcd full of prices were to bo expectm
to result from ceasing to purchase silvo
for the United States treasury , woougji
to act slowly nnd exhaust every posslbli
< r means before attempting to force Europi
a to an agreement by an industrial ghocl
tit which would necessarily react to ou
3- own injury.
Of It eooms rather hasty to conclude tha
the roponl of thotShormnn silver pur-
chnso not will brlfife such disastrous con-
scqtioncoj to E vflopenn Industry. It
would undoubtedly remove an obstacle
that hns boon hampering trndo nnd com
merce In this cd"tWlry nnd would restore
confidence from the very Jnct that n
temporizing poljcyj hnd given wny to n
permanent plnnt. ; . The return of confi
dence and a fnvbrnblo turn In foreign
trade might brlhfV the continental na
tions to a moro yielding attitude toward
the wishes of th"ortfnltod States , but to
expect the spoc'tly , consummation of an
international monetary ngrcomontmuch ,
as it may bo desired , does not seem war
ranted by the existing outlook

From all the Information that wo have
been able to obtain concerning the post
ponement of the decision by tlio supreme
court of the paving Injunction ca.se until
the first week in September wo are con
vinced that the responsibility Is wholly
with the city attorney. When Mr. Cou
ncil entered into stipulation with the
attorney employed by the asphalt con
tractor to permit' a brief to bo filed on
Monday lie certainly must have
known thnt ho was giving the
city's case away. Mr. Council
know that the court would adjourn Its
term on Monday and would not recon
vene until Soptombcr. Ho know that
the court was willing to give its deci
sion before it adjourned , providing the
arguments were all in before adjourn
ment. Ho know that the ofTect of the
stipulation with the attorney on the
ether side would bo to put the case ever ,
and thus paralyze public works in
Omaha in the midst of a season of com
It also transpires that the justices of
tlio supreme court would gladly have
served the interests of this city by hold
ing over another day if City Attorney
Connell had made an application for
such action. But Mr. Connell evi
dently desired otherwise , and ho Is justly
responsible for the consequences.
Whatever may bo his private interests ,
his duty to the city and to the people of
Omaha was plain. Mr. Connell may
have desired to postpone the paving of
some streets upon which ho owns real
estate , but that does not palliate the
surrender of the city's interests.
NOT nn insignificant practical result
of the World's fair has already boon to
direct a now attention to the problem of
an available waterway from Chicago to
the Atlantic as .well as to the Gulf of
Mexico. A day or two ago a steam
yacht of very ligh't , draught of course ,
arrived in that city direct from New
Orleans. This vdssol ascending the
Mississippi , passed up the Illinois river
and finally entered the Chicago river
through the Illinois and Michigan canal.
The Spanish caravels are now making
their way from the Atlantic coast
through the St. Lawrence river and the
lower lakes. There is also the viking
ship coming tlio same route from Nor
way. The main drainage channel now
being constructed will connect Chicago
with the JllinoLf j'iypr , and as compara
tively small improvements would make
the Illinois navigablo"f6r boats of ton or
twelve foot draught , It Is difficult to
understand why the state or the people
themselves do not got to work and com
plete the enterprise instead of calling
upon and waiting for the national gov
ernment to undertake the task. The
problem of a watorwny to the Atlantic ,
however , is a matter of moro national
import , and it is not surprising that
Chicago has done nothing in that direc
tion. It should bo looked to , however.
Now that Mitchell and Corbott have
signed an agreement to fight before the
Columbian Athletic club at Koby , Ind. ,
for the world's
ship and a purse of15,000 , some of tlio
Chicago papers are denouncing the legIslature -
Islaturo and governor of that state for
the pernicious law that will prevent the
authorities from interfering. They point
out thnt since Indiana lias assumed to
license pri/.o fighting within her bor
ders , Chicago , in this instance , must
bear the odium of its attendant evils.
Roby is * ju t a few miles from the city
across the state line , and the little In
diana village can only bo a meeting
place while the fight is going on. The
complaint is that Chicago will bo over
run with the disreputables that have bo-
oomo intolerable in Now Orleans. What
most forcibly strikes the impartial ob
server at this distance is this spasmodic
exhibition of indignation against the
presence of a disreputable element in
that city , nnd that she should insist In
diana must relieve her of the full burden -
don of public censure. The public had
not supposed Chicago sensitive on the
score of reputation.
THAT the now Gorman Parliament
should bo convened on the Fourth of
July is undoubtedly a more accident. It
is , however , significant as an evidence ol
constitutionalism. Dictatorial as the
Gorman emperor may bo in minor mut
ters , the constitution under which ho
holds Ms ofilco forhiils him to govern in
time of pouco without two houses ol
parliament , except , ' during the dissolu
tion of the Reichstag. The reopening
of Parliament means the subjection o (
the emperor to tlio'wtyll of the people.
