The doolslon of the railway president *
to uboy the spirit and letter of the now
maximum freight rate law , which goes
Into ofToct In Nebraska next month , will
lw hnllod with satisfaction by every
rosldont within thti Htato. No ono will
fcol anything but jilcasant disappoint
ment In learning that the rumored talk
of willfully Ignoring the provisions of
the titntitto have proven altogether un
founded. That there was some thought
among the subordinate ofllclals of the
railroad companies doing buttincsH with
in this Htatd of paying no attention to
the logltdatlon onautcd on this mibjoot
and of lighting all attempts at onforco-
inotit , from the lowest to the highest
court ? , Is not lo bo doubted. In laying
aside every disposition to oppose the
provision * ! of the law the presidents
have displayed commendable good sense ,
for which thny dcsorvo all credit.
The railway * have boon urged to take
thin stop largely hy considerations of
tholr own best IntorostH. Advice that
obedience IH the only policy consonant
with tholr welfare has been olTorcd by
parties In no way hostile to the corpora
tions affected. A late number of the
United tittttcs Jnvcstnr declares :
Tlio law imut bo oboyuit nnil the donimonil

The people have a right to take the
iresldents at tholr word and to regard
ho announcement as evidence of a sin-
ere purpose to obey the law. Acting
tpon that assumption they will expect
ho railways to discountenance every
ict of tholr officials contravening the

It is the consensus of opinion among
hose who have the most favorable op-
) ortunily of knowing what is proposed
n democratic circles that in the organi-
y.atiou of the next house of ropresenta-
Ivos now loaders will take the places of
the men who. were at the front in the
ast congress. Such competent author
ty as the Washington correspondent of
the Philadelphia. Lcdijer has recently
stated that Mr. Springer will not bo ro-
alned at the head of the ways and means
commitlco , and while ho does not say
) osltlvoly who may bo the successor to
-hat gentleman he names MeMillin of
Tennessee and Wilson of West Virginia
us possibilities. It is understood that
either of the last two would bo accept
able to the administration , with a pref
erence , probably , for the laltor. It is
now declared by those who represent
the president that Mr. Springer has not
the quallllcations necessary to frame a
tarilT hill and that his appointment two
years iigo as chairman of thy ways and
means committee was a surprise and a
Disappointment. That this criticism is
not ultogethor just there can bo no
question , but it serves the purpose
of the administration , which pro
poses to manage the whole work
of tarilT revision , to have It made ,
and certainly those who do not desire a
radical change in the tarilT cannot
reasonably complain. The dropping o
Mr. Springer will necessitate other
changes from the composition of the
ways and moans committee of Iho last
congress , and It is understood that Mr
Uryan , who waa placed on the commit'
too at the request of Springer , will droj
out with his patron. Bryan was not i
purlioulurly ellloient member of the com
unttoo und besides this his position re
garding silver makes him particularly
objectionable to the administration.
As to the chairmanship of the com
mitt too on coinage , weights and measures
uros It 1ms recently been stated that
Mr. IMund does not desire to bo m
tained , It IH certain that u majority o
the committee will bo opposed to his
vlows on Hllvor and lie Is stild to haw
concluded that in that case ho oould dc
bettor Horvlco for free stiver on the lloor
as an independent champion of thut pol
ley. Undoubtedly ho will bo allowed
this privilege. It seems not to have
boon fully determined whether Hol-
mun will lie kept ut the head of the ap
propriations committee or not , hut the
chances nro that he , too , will
bo sent to the rear us being
too superannuated for the work required
of the head of the appropriations com
mittee , There would bo no'gonornl ro-
I ! rot at thla change. Ills the Impres
sion that the reorgani/.ation of the Im
portant committees of the house , agree
ably to the wishes of the administration ,
will provoke a great deal of dissatisfac
tion , but it Is obviously necessary In
order to onublo the administration to
carry out Its policies. There Is the pos
sibility , however , of the broach between
the democratic factions becoming wider
and deeper than over.
. - .vwir ru-w.Ksi'jcv iMf.tor ,
Secretary Carlisle has pu/y.lod tlmin-
olul circles by adopting a polloy which
IH not only new , hut under existing con
ditions altogether remarkable , Not-
whhstundlng the depletion of the gold
reserve In the treasury , whluli in nearly
$2,000,000 below the amount at which it
was maintained blnco the llrst adminis
tration of Mr. Cleveland , the treasury
otllctals at New York have boon volun
tarily paying out gold Instead of cur
rency , although these having demands
upon the treasury preferred the latter.
In vlow of the genorul undorstmidlng
that thu Boorutury was anxious to replace -
place the gold that had boon taken from
the ro.Mirvo , the extraordinary notion of
the treasury caused some surprUo and
curiosity.
Two explanations nra offered. Ono is
thut the secretary desired to tx > prepared
for a possible largo demand upon the
treasury for ouritmoy to inovo the
crops. It Is suggested that the hoardIng -
Ing of currency , both by the banks and
by individuals , may cause an unusual
call upon tlio government to moot the
demand for currency a few weeks hence ,
and while this Is not assured , it Is
doomed expedient lo bo ready for it in
case it should come. The ether expla
nation Is that the banks being just
now In need of small bills , the
treasury has taken advantage of tho'op
portunity to force the banks into exchanging -
changing gold or gold certificates in
largo quanlltlos for small legal tender
notes that they need , and it is intimated
this Is done In a spirit of retaliation
that Iho banks having withhold their
gold from the treasury when it needed
gold , the treasury now proposes to "got
even" by keeping the banks out of the
currency they require until they shall
surrender gold for It.
The llrflt explanation in Improbable ,
however commondiiblo the motive to
which It ascribes the action of the treas
ury. The national treasury has never
concerned Itself about the possible cur
rency demand of the country for moving
the crops , and while there Is nothing to
prevent tlio adoption of a precautionary
policy with reference to such future call
for currency the proceeding would bo so
entirely foreign to its legitimate func
tions that it is not easy to bellovo Secre
tary Carlisle , who la known to bo
strongly in favor of keeping the opera
tions of the treasury strlclly within Ihoir
proper limitations , could bo induced to
adopt it. It is conceivable that a policy
of withholding currency by the
treasury might under provalng con
ditions do some good , but it
is also conceivable that the establish
ment of Hitch a precedent might be
fruitful of havoc in the future. AH to
the ether explanation It is perhaps sulll-
clout to say that If the action of the
treasury was intended to retaliate on
the bunks It was a grave mistake , for
Iho obvious reason thut it cannot pursue
a course of thin kind without inllicting
more or loss Injury upon all Interests.
If the banks require small notes for
general distribution and cannot obtain
them from the only source whore they
are to be had , the injury is
not to the banks alone or chiolly ,
but to the business and agricultural
communities where such currency is in
demand. Such a policy must inevitably
work widespread Inconvenience , with
damaging results to business , from
which the people would be the principal
sulTorors rather than tlio banks.
The administration of the national
treasury should bo free from all schemes
and expedients which tend to complicate
Iho financial alTaira of the people or to
interfere with the regular processes of
business. Whenever it goes beyond pro
vlding for the obligations of the govern
ment and maintaining the public credit
it exceeds its proper function , and the
result cannot bo otherwise than harmful.
.IUmO/OI/.S / .1X1) TIMKl.Y UOUNHKL.
When people are under the inlluonco
of excitement and four , the man who
comes forward with calm counsel and
rational admonition is a public
benefactor. The comptroller of the
currency , Hon. James II. Eckels ,
was not supposed when ho was ap
pointed to have any very practical
ideas of financial affairs. lie is u luw-
jor who hud not boon identified with
bunking , and the rule had been to select
for the position ho occupies a man
who had some knowledge of the
business' of banking and neces
sarily of Ihmnciul allairs generally.
Quito naturally , therefore , there wore
mlHgivlngH us lo whether Mr. KckoH
would bo found equal to thu demands o
the very responsible olllco which ho
holds ,
Thus far , it is nlmplo justice to say ,
ho bus justllled the wisdom of his selec
tion , and ills only fair lo judge from
this thai ho will continue lo do HO. He
took hold of the duties of his olllce in a
way to give confidence to the country
that he intended to administer it will :
reference to the public intorontH , ant
the results HO far have been sue !
us to satisfy all fulr mlndoil
men that Iho- national banking system
of Iho country will ho looked aftoi b
the present administration wlthou
favor or prejudice. Comptroller Eckels
was given a dinner at the Union Loiiguo
club of Now York , TuosdayTivonlng , am
his speech on the occasion containc (
muoh wise and timely counsel whicl
should bo carefully considered by al
classes of pooplo. lie did not take the
gloomy and pessimistic view of the
liimncial situation. lie did not
sou In every bunk and mer
cantile failure an ominous sign of
impending panic. Ho did not regard
the outlook an full of danger to the
llnanclal and business intorosta of the
country. On the contrary , ho declared
that there was no possibility of a panic ,
that the bunking Institutions of the
country are generally in a sound con
dition und that the legitimate business
of the country is not seriously threat
ened. The admonition of the eump-
Irollor waa simply that the people should
abandon tholr fears and recover eon-
lldonuo. Ho deprecated the withdrawal
of ourrenoy from the banking institu
tions merely for the purpose of hoarding
it , as calculated to produce the very
condition of affairs which It is the gen
eral deslro to avert. Ho counseled con-
lldence in the banking Institutions of
the country reference being had , of
course , to those under governmental
supervision us warranted by past ox-
poriotioo , and ho commended the gonjjr-
ally courageous course of the banks as
having boon "a constant source of in
spiration to all the country. " ' The
comptroller hud something to say
about the evil effects of specu
lation , which everybody understands
and appreciates , but the force
and worth of all that ho said la to bo
found in the implication that the exist
ing condition is chletly duo to a lack of
conlldence for which there is really lit-
tit ) substantial reason ,
That there are still weak spoU in the
llnanclal and commercial editlces is not
to bo doubted , and these may bo ex
pected to continue to show themselves
as the process of liquidation good on , but
tho'-o is no valid reason wby
the continued downfall of specu
lative and badly managed entor-
prlbos and Institutions should create
alarm and impair contidenco in those
vhlch have doinotftVJj Ad tholr claim to
onfldonoo. If tha.JitdloloU3 and llmoly
ounscl of ComrVtrbllor Kckols were
generally heeded 1Ts probable that the
country would oxjjor'loneo a moro rapid
recovery from < 1liirist { | and depression.
Tun Lincoln oraW of the Impeached

his fling at the Impeachment managers :
'Thoro being somtoof the impeachment

traordinary that the lawlng is to go on

comes that the 'Impeachment committee'
ms doelded to 'reopen the case , ' dis
charging all the old lawyers but Mr.
l.ambortson. " Out of its own mouth It
s condemned. Tlio fact that all the
awyors but ono have been discharged is
not conclusive evidence of an attack upon
ho impeachment appropriation. What
jothora this subsidized Lincoln organ Is
.hat . the legislature appropriated money

regret that the unexpended balance in

CASKS suspected to bo cholera have

United States. Whoh the subject was
dlHcursed last year the conclusion gen

that if the winter could be passed and
the plague kept out during the spring ,
the danger of its onlranco inlo this
country would bo entirely past. Now
wo Und that no absolute limit to the
danger point can with certainty be laid
down. Under the circumstances the
only method of insuring the health of
the people is to retain the most sirin-
gent quarantine regulations and to
exert every effort to put our dwellings
and streets into a condition which will
not invite diseaso. Those precautions
are not needed alone in the seaport
towns. The interior cities must do their
Bhnro of cleaning up if they want to re
main in a healthy condition.
ATTOUNKYGKNKIIAT.J OI.NKY is said
to bo anxious to secure tlio appointment
to the existing vacancy upon the bench
of the supreme court of the United
States. Owing , however , to the fact
that ho resides in Massachusetts , whence
Justice Gray was appointed , his pros
pects for the attainment of that position
are not very brigljt Although Presi
dent Cleveland during his first term
promoted ono of his cabinet advisors to
the supreme courtyot , , the polloy of
breaking up the unity of a cabinet is not
ono that will commend itself to general
favor. That stability so highly doair-
able in the counsels , df the executive is
marred sulllciontly by deaths and resig
nations without tb e introduction of this

THE Now York Tribune prints some
interesting tables bearing upon taxation
returns in tlie metropolis. The total
valuation of real and personal property
for 1803 is 91,033ril8,528.00 , an increase of
$105II. " ) 1,2. ) I over that of the previous
year. The value of property exempted
from the levy by law foots up 9410,323-
185. Only nine parties are taxed upon
ever $1,000,000 in personal property ,
while almost all the great dignitaries in
Tammany hull pay no nueh taxes at all.
The personal estate of Grover Cleveland
is listed at 35,000 ; of Chuuncoy M.
Dopow at $10,000 ; of ox-Scerotary Fairchild -
child at $3,000 ; of Senator Calvin S.
Hrico at 87,500. For samples those
will do very well.
