The. attempt to railroad the unior
depot ordinance through under whli
and spur , in npito of the glaring defects
and. reckless disregard of the public In
terests , lias scarcely a parallel In tin
annals of the city. The contrast be
tweeu the llnscall ordinance nnd tin
llrst : ordinance that wns submitted t <
the people and rntllled some years ag <
Is moMt striking. The Ih-st union ik'po
ordinance , : is drawn by General Solid
1or Thurston of the Union Pacillc. re
quired two-thirds of all the votes cas
at the election for Its ratification. Tin
Hascall ordinance does not require i
two-thirds vote , or even n majority oi
the votes cast at the election , A ban
majority of the votes cast for the propo
sltionlsaH that Is required. In othpi
words , Ir only 5,000 of the 20,000 voters o
Oinaliu vote on the proposition , 2.riO ]
would carry it. Contrast this with tin
canal proposition. In that case It wll
take not only two-thirds of the votes cas
on the proposition , but two-thirds oi
the total vote of the county reguvdlos :
as to the number of voters who fail tt
cast a vote for or against it.
The llrst union depot ordinance pro
vlded that the union depot shall be
built lu accordance with the plans am
sketches on tile In the city clerk's oltlee
The proposed ordinance leaves It op
tlonnl with the Union Depot companj
to finish the building as originally
planned , or to remodel and cheapen tin
structure. As a matter of fact , tin
building begun under the llrst unloi
depot ordinance Is a cheat , ami not h
conformity with the original plans
The first ordinance required tin
Union Depot company to give n bom
Intho sum of OO.OOO , to be also slgne *
by the Uulou Pnellle and UiirUpgtoj
railroads , that the building would bi
completed by January 1 , 1SL' ! ) . Tin
proposed ordinance contains no guar
unty that the building will bo com
pleted at any specilled time. The con
tractor Is required to begin work on 01
before Xew Tear's day , Iii05 , and com
piete tile structure within n year fron
Unit dale , but there is no bond oi
guaranty that It will be llnished withli
that time or live years hence.
The original ordinance provided tha
nil railroad companies that may dcsln
the prlvlli'Ke shall have the right ti
run pansenger trains Into and fron
mild union depot on Just and equtlnbh
terms , to 1m agreeij upon by the Unloi
Depot company and the railroad com
puny making application therefor. AIM'
lu case the said companies are uiinbh
to agree as to wlmt are Just and eqnltu
hie terms , the question shall bo sub
inlttrd to threw arbitra'tors. one to hi
chosen by each of said companies , tint
the two thus selected to choose tin
third , the decision of any two ot salt
arbitrators to bo binding upon boll
companies. Another provision of tin
ordinance was that all railroad com
panles that may desire the prlvliegt
shall have the right to run their passenger
songer trains over the Missouri rlvei
brldgo and approaches thereto of saU
Union I'tie llle Hallway company , nsini
therefor its tracks from the Unloi
transfer r.t Council Bluffs , la. , to am
from the said union depot , upon jus
and equitable terms , to be agreed upoi
between the Union Pacllle Hallway com
pany nnd the railroad company ninklni
application for such use of said rail
road track and bridge , and In case tin
said companies are unable to agree a :
to what are just and equitable term *
this question whall bo submitted to threi
arbitrator , one to bo choseu by each o
said companies , and the two thiist se
levied to choose the third , the decision
of any two of said arbitrators to IK
binding upon both companies.
The llrtscnll-Coiuji'll ordinance mnlti
nil thi'Mvital guaranties and leavet
the Union Depot company free to ad
mil only such roads .is will accept \\t \ \
arbitrary conditions , iiml tlio depol
company may even exclude nny rail
road from the use and privilege of tin
terminal facilities for which 1hls eltj
has H trendy paid over $1,000,0(10 ( hi

( Julie apart from releasing the Union
t'acttlf and I'urllngton companies froti
all the contract' obligations mulct
which the depot grounds were orlgl

requires the mnyor to quitclaim ami

lU-foroneo was inside a short time age
to statistics furnished by the dlrei-toi
of the mint showing the bicresislng pro
duction of gold in tinworld. . That or
llclal lias jifSt made public later t-stl
mates , revising those previously made
In which It Is shown Unit tile minimum
gold production of the world for IS ! ) I
will be not less than .fl'lt.OOLMHXi , in
stead of * 1 < ! S.OOO.XM ) . as given In tin
earlier estimates. In 1S :5 : the gold pro
duction of the world was ? irM.OO,000 ( )
or .flM.OOO.dOO less than tliu estimated
product Ion for the current year. An In
leri-sllng feature of these estimates re
lates to tiie relative gold and sliver pro
dnctlon of the world and of the Unltec
States for the year 1SW.
The silver production of the world
will not vary much this year from bisl
hi quantity , but It will represent con
slderably less In commercial value. Tin
vnliiiof tile lil ( , < HXooo ) ounces pro
duced In ISO. ! was estimated at ahonl
$ ljrtK > ( MHH > . whereas tin- same output
for 1MH will huve a value of only about
$ 11..000.000. The director of the mini
shows from these llgures that I ho aver
age value of the gold alone produced
In the present year will be somewhat
In excess of the average annual valm
of the world's output of gold and sllvei
combined during the years Istil-lVt , and
only $ ir > , < > 00,000 short of the average
annual value of the world's output ol
gold and sliver combined for the mow
recent period of 18UU-7J1. This gold pro
duct of the world for tin ; last four yem :
Is thus stated : 1J8H. $ iU.050,000 : ) ; 180' > ; law , si-r.r > ' . ! iooo , ; isiw
( estimated ) , $170XW,000- being ob
served that the production for tin- pros ,
cut. year may "exceed this' amount
Thus in four years there has been tin
great Increase of ? li,000OD ( ( ) In tin
world's gold supply , mid It Is estimated
that the production of 1803 will show
a still further Increase. Certainly , hi
view of these facts , there Is no substan
tial ground for the apprehension of r
gold famine , which the advocates of tin
free coinage of silver seek to create.
There Is matter In these llgures foi
the serious consideration of those people
ple who are disposed to look with fnvoi
upon the demand for the free and un
limited coinage of silver. If the gohl
product alone for 18' ) 1 exceeds in valm
the annual average of the combined
gold and silver product of thirty year.--
ago by over $3,000,000 , and that , fen
lS"i ! exceeds the animal average of the
combined gold and silver product ol
twenty-live years ago also by several
millions , as seems u sim-d t'mm the tig-
urea of the mint director , the annual
gohl product will have reached a llgurc
that , will utterly destroy the claim ol
the free silver nelvocntes that gold can
not be produced In mitlieiont quantity ti
make It a safe * money metal for tin
world. The effect of this Increasing
gold supply will In time , of course , bt
favorable to silver , and If the rate ol
Increase for the next four years should
be as great as that of the last four ,
without any marked Increase ! In tin
production of silver , a considerable siel
Vance In tliu commercial value of the
wldte metal would be assured. Meari-
whllo the llgures of the director of tin
mint , which , so fiir as they are esti
mates , are undoubtedly conservative
completely dispose of one of the argu
ments In support of tlio demand foi
the free and unlimited coinage of sllvei
Unit there Is danger of tlio world ex
perleuclng a gold famine.
The Philadelphia Itcconl , whoso edl
ter , Mr. William M. Slngorly , Is tin
democratic candidate for governor oi
Pennsylvania , gives its approval to tin
views of Mr. De-pew and Senator III1 !
that there should bo a cessation of tarlfl

extended period of industrial peace and
traiiqnllity. Tliu Record says thntsue'li
nmcndmejits as experience may war

with little resistance from any quarter ,
' but the industries and labor , capita !

In ids memorable letter to Chairman
Wilson of the wnyH nuel means commit
tee Mr. Cleveland nald of the tariff bill I
that subsequently became ; law that It t
fell far short of the consummation foi
which tariff rofemners hael labored and I
was an nhanelonnicnt of the principle- : I

that the contest feir tariff ivfonn wiif

The German government has submit

against discriminating duty of one-
tenth ef a cent on sugar imported from
countries which pay an export bounty ,
it Is stated that the Gorman govern
ment regards this provision as espe
cially oppressive 1e > the sugar producers
of that country nnd nisei us violating
treaty nrraiigements. Uoforenco is
made in tin ; protest to the eoneessiem
in raising the embargo on American
pen-k , which may fairly be regarded as
an intimation that the embargo may be
reiinposod if the discriminating duty em
sugar is mulntnlncil. This action on
the part of the German geivernment Is
not at all surprising. On tliu contrary.
It was just what was to have been ex-

ance , and It Is pretty safts to predict
that she will Ilrmly Insist on having
tliu cause of it removed , mid If that
Is refused will adopt such a retaliatory
policy as she. shall doom be-st. The most
natural thing feir her to do woulel be to
restore the embargo against our pork ,
which woulel mean the loss of a very

Nellfih Yeoman : H causes republican edit
ors of the Tom Majors Ilk much agony to
see many other republican editors who be-
llevu In honesty In politics "going Into
ecstaeles over the pop candidate for governor
Instead of supporting the republican ticket
as they should. " Any honest mid conscien
tious man , no matter of whnt political faith ,
will acknowledge that In Integrity , honor ,
ability , nnd morality. Judge Holcomb Is ns
far above Tom Majors as the. heavens are
above the earth.
Valley Enterprise : In splto of the opposi
tion of the railroads , nnd , therefore , of the
republican machine , combined with the ad
ministration , federal olllce and corporation
democrats , exerted both before and during
the democratic state convention In an effort
to further the election of Tom Majors for
governor , that convention nominated outright
Silas A. Holcomb for governor and James N.
GalUn for lieutenant governor by a viite of
more than two to one. This action on the
part of the : democrats makes sure of the
election of Judge Holcomb for governor.
Lincoln News : If the state oinclals desire
to hazard republican success In this mate
they have only to enable the bolting demo
crats to place the rump ticket on the olllclal
ballot , to the exclusion of the regular nomi
nees. There Is .such a thing us fairness In
politics , and when It Is manifested it will
receive the manifest approval of the people ,
while political unfairness is certain to re
ceive the rebuke of honest voters of the
state. A manifestation of fairness on the
part of Its representatives will be to the ad
vantage of the republicans this year , not only
because It Is right , but because It will pre
vent placing on the olllclal ballot a ticket
that will draw votes from the republican
ticket. It has no deserved place on the bal
lot and should not be allowed to go there.
Plattsmoutli Journal : That Xcbraska has
been robbed and plundered without conscience
for years by a set of political bummers , who
have always consorted with the railroad
lobby , Is a fact too well known to dispute.
That Tom Majors has ben a part of this
gang Is also well known , and that he got his
nomination by bribery and gang methods Is
well known , openly charged , and Is not de
nied. That the Castor crowd of politicians
who nro maseiueradlng as democrats Is In
consort with .the boodle gang of republicans
Is a .fact , as patent as the nose on a man's
face , and every honest man \vlll shun them
and their projects as one would the haunts
of a viper. There need be no mistake on the
part of nny one who wishes to promote the
well-being of the good state of Nebraska.
The republican st'ate central committee
announces that It will soon flood the state
with letters from eastern capitalists order
ing all loans withdrawn until the result of
the election U known , as no money will ho
sent to Nebraski : If a populist governor U
chosen. As. a sample of the letters to fol
low , one has already been given to the pub
lic purporting to come from "J. F. Crofut
of Burllncton , Vt. , who has targe financial
transactions In both Kansas and Nebraska. "
Mr. Crofut is quoted as saying that he would
not loan a dollar In Nebraska If Holcomb
Is elected. After the letter had been
printed an Inquisitive resident of Fremont
wrote to the postmaster at Burlington , Vt. ,
to Inquire as to the financial standing of
Mr. Crofut. In reply the postmaster re
ceived the short but satisfying note : "No
such person is known here. " It would seem
from this that the liar employed by the
committee lacked the requisite experience.
