Tln rcmibllctina of Inwii voiced the
sentiment of republicans everywhere In
congratulating the people of the conn
try upon the evidences of returning pros
perity. There IH mo republican who
does not rejoice that the Industries of
the country arc again In active opera
tlon , that labor Is In demand at In
creased wages and that all the condi
tions appear favorable to an era of
prosperity. It has been the work of
the republican parly to build up the In-
dtislries of the nation , to maintain at
u remunerative standard the compensa
tion of American labor and to promote
the prosperity of all classes of the
people. Therefore republicans are glad
when the Instrumentalities of material
progress are In operation and everybody
Hut they deny the assumption of their
political opponents ) that the 'industrial
Improvement and the wage restoration
are In any degree due to the democratic
policy regarding the tariff , and they in
sist that had the policy proposed by the
administration and embodied in the
measure passed by the democratic ma
jority of tile house of representatives
of the last congress prevailed the panic
and depression would have been far
more severe than It was and the period
of existence greatly prolonged. That
policy contemplated the sweeping away
of almost every vestige of protection to
American industries and Its embodi
ment In the Wilson bill was the nearest
approach , with perhaps a single excep
tion , ever made to free trade in this
country. Detwecn that measure and
the law which Mr. Cleveland declared
to be an act of perlldy and dishonor
and would not sign there Is almost as
wide a gulf as between the existing
law and the republican tariff act of
1S1K ) , under which there was unprece
dented prosperity until the election of
a democratic president and congress , on
a platform declaring protection to be
unconstitutional and demanding Its
abandonment , alarmed the industrial In
terests of the country and precipitated
a panic. The existing tariff law , as the
Iowa platform declares , Is not a
measure which the republican party
would father , but with all its faults
and defects It is less harmful to the
country and to the national treasury
than the Wilson bill would have been.
The democratic Cincinnati Kmiuirer
pointedly says : "The men who were
rampant for the Wilson bill and hotly
indignant at the senate amendments
are not entitled to wear feathers In
their hats and carry banners In the
harvest-home procession of tills year. "
Lot it be candidly admitted that some
recovery from Industrial and business
depression would doubtless have taken
place in any event , but It is equally
certain that had the congressional elec
tions of last year not returned a ma
jority of republicans there would be no
such Improvement as has taken place
during the past six months. The result
of those elections , evidencing the most
sweeping change of sentiment In the
history of American politics , not onlj
called a halt to the free trade move
ment , but demonstrated that n vast
majority of American voters believe In
the policy of protection and intend that
it shall be maintained. Just as t\vo years
before democratic success was almost
immediately followed by the curtail
ment of industrial activity , the re
publican victory in ISO I , carrying reas
surance to all the business Interests of
the country , was in n brief time tol-
lowed by a resumption of Industrial
activity , and the fact that improvement
Is going steadily forward is in no small
degree due to the general belief that
u republican president and congress
will be elected next year.
TIIK KUSTIS KriSODB.
Tliore will be no disturbance of the
friendly relations subsisting between
.Spain nnd the United States In consequence
quence of the remarks attributed to Am
bassador Kustis by ti French paper.
The Spanish -authorities are understood
to be entirely satisfied with the expla
nation given by the American minister
ut Madrid , which was accompanied by
the assurance of the friendly attitude
of the V'lited ' States toward Spain. The
remark ascribed to our ambassador to
France , to which the Spanish authori
ties took exception , was to the effect
that tlie sympathies of the American
people are in favor of the Cuban insur
gents , who llnd in the United States ,
without the knowledge of the govern
ment , assistance of every kind. Mr ,
Kustis denies having said any such
thing , but he might have done so with
entire truthfulness , and if he did not
the writer of the interview in Figaro ,
with whom he admits having held 11
conversation , Is astonishingly well In
formed for a Kuropean journalist as te

representative of a French paper would
put In the mouth of the American am
Imssudor , who had honored him will
an audience , a statement so accurntelj
representing American feeling unless he
had been given a substantial basis foi
it. It is said that the "boulevarr
' press" of Purls Is especially addicted tt
mendacity and that Figaro is the worsi
' " of the lot in this respect. It is also salt' '
that these papers have a paHiculai
fondness for misrepresenting foreigt

TIlH HOMAMST HViHK.lIt.
OMAHA. July 11. To the Editor of Tha
Hue : 1 feel almost sure you are not aware
of all that Is being eald of the course The
lice lias recently taken In respect to the
A. I' . A. You arc pursuing a course that
will Itiflamo the opposition to Homantam
till It may yet become a religious war In
Omaha. The A. P. A. and very many
other Rood citizens are not Intending to re
main Idle and allow all the city and county
offices to be filled by forclRn-born men , most
of whom are Catholics. And I am sure you
do not want to be so unreasoning as to
Insist upon such a result. Uut the position
of The Bee can be and Is construed to bo
favorable to just such a result.
I submit the question direct : Is it best
for all concerned that the best offices shall
bo filled by Catholics ? You know that nearly
all the saloon keepers are Catholics , and
that with Uomanlst.s In office they will not
be disturbed In their wicked pursuit. The
Is plainly obvious , and you would be
'alse to good municipal government It you
hould Insist upon any such thing. In-
ccd , a better method to promotelawless -
ess could not be Invented , and no one
mows It better than you.
You know , too , that when any movement
organized In Omaha In any way affecting
he city government the Catholics seek con-
rol ; and they Intend , If It can bo brought
bout , to manage It wholly to their ad-
antage. And they are now using you and
he IJeo as catspawa. Your Inclination is
o pursue an independent course , but you
re not accused of being handicapped by the
icrsiiaslon and money of Romanists. And
ou know that any Interference with the
> lans or choices or election of Catholics
icgets the cry , "Religious War. " It ls all
tght only when the Catholics have all the
ifllces. They are hardly satisfied to submit
, o a division of offices with American-born
Now this Is not a canard , nor meant to
ntlmldate you , but Is simply the statement
f the case as it exists. Dut If. you continue
he present course and persist In the ad-
ocacy of the very things which favor the
Romanists you must not be surprised at a
'ailing off of subscriptions to The Dee. It
has already begun In this city. FIDES.
The man who lacks the courage and
nanhood to sign his name to a letter in
iVlileh lie attempts to defend t-octarlan
iroscrlption and knownothlug bigotry
iVonld receive no attention at the hands
> f The Hoc were it not for the fact that
ds screed voices on paper what the
star chamber patriot * ) are talking be-
ilnd barred doors and in political back
illeys. Their cry is that the demand
'or reform in local government on the
lues of nonparIsanshlp ! and nonsec-
arlanlsm will Inllame the opposition to
Uomanlsm. If this be true , then the
citizens' movement Is playing right into
he hands of the antl-Catholle agitators
iinil The Bee has been rendering them
an invaluable service which they dp not
seem to appreciate.
The mysterious Mr. Fides asserts that
good citizens will not remain Idle and
ullow forelgii-boru men , and especially
Catholics , to lill all the city and county
otllces. And then Mr. Fides asks The
Ilec whether or not it is best that the
best ofllccs should be tilled by Catholics.
What ground is there for asserting that
the men enlisted in the citizens'
movement propose to (111 ( city
: ind county oliic-es with foreign-born
citizens ? Who was it that knifed , sold
out and defeated George W. Llninger ,
in American-born Protestant , for mayor
of Omaha and elected In his place It. C.
dishing , a Homan Catholic of Irish
descent ? Is it not notorious that dish
ing owed his election to the ranting
hypocrites who were charter members
of the A. P. A. order In this city and are
today its chosen leaders ? And whom
did these latter-day Knownothings
place at the head of their ticket In 1S01
and again in 1SKI ! ? A Canadian-born
alien who was not a citizen of the
United States until after his election.
In what part of America was City
Treasurer Ilolln bom ? How about
Comptroller Olsen and his deputy , West-
berg , one of the high priests among the
anti-Catholic crusaders ? Are foreign-
born men born over again as soon n *
they have taken the oath to proscribe
American citizens of foreign birth and
even American-born citizens because
they belong to a different Christian de
nomination or refuse to join an oath-
bound political order ?
It is not true that nearly all the saloon
keepers in Omaha are Catholics. Quite
the contrary , the local distillery and
three out of four breweries are owned
and operated by Protestants. The same
proportion will hold good as regards
the saloons. And who patronizes these
saloons , we pray ? Are not the howling
dervishes who have constituted them
selves the head centers of A. P. A'lsn
In Omaha among their most liberal pa
Irons ? We are told that with Uomanist :
In olllcc the saloons will not be dis
turbed in their wicked pursuit. This If
refreshing indeed. Who is In olllct
now ? Certainly not the Iloman Cutho
lies. And the naloon keepers continue
undisturbed In their wicked pursuit
Are not the liquor dealers all subjec
to the same law ?
"You are not accused of being handl
capped by the persuasion and money o ;
Itomaulsts , " exclaims the masked pa
trlot. This Is only another way of re
pcatliiR the baseless slanders and false
hoods which are being circulated by tin
dark lantern politicians who are seek
ing to delude credulous people into tin
idea that there is a papal conspiracy ti
tlestroy American liberty. These tin
scrupulous ImjMJstcrs are audaciously as
sertlng that The Bee has passed mule
the control of the Catholics , and the ;
go so far as to charge that John A
Crelghton has loaned many thousand
of dollars to Itosewatcr , who Is undo
contract to defend the Catholics am
wage war against their political perse
cutora and antagonists. As a matter o
fact. Mr. Crelghton has not donate * '
loaned or caused to bo loaned a slngl
dollar either to Itosewater or The lie
In the last fifteen years. The enl
money transaction between the Crelgl
tons and The Hee or Its editor was close
by the payment of the mortgages on th
old lice oltlce building buck In 187. '
The Crelghtons , and for that matter n

'cannot be longer hoodwinked by false
appeals to bigotry and prejudice.
According to the report of the county
clerk , the Douglas county poor farm
is a veritable savings bank for the tax
payers. It has not only become a
model Institution , but it will soon have
saved enough of the people's money to
run Itself Indefinitely. How all these
savings have been effected in the ab
sence of Superintendent Stryker , whose
time is almost entirely taken up , night

County Clerk Sackett has submitted
a very exhaustive report of the affairs

to the fact that several permanent gold

The Impression that the free silver craze
Is gradually declining gains ground every
day. The greater part of this good fortune
Is due , doubtless , to better times , but it
should not be forgotten that the leading

may bo credited to them.

UTltKIl J..t.VJ > .S TIIAX OVHS.
AVhlio the Ilrltlsh people nro exempt from
lie long preliminary canvasses , openly con-
lucted through primaries , district conven
tions , state conventions and finally national
conventions that lead up to an American
national lection and nro followed by a tall
five months ot subsequent conflict on the
stump nml In the press , they are in con
stant private tralnlni ? for the general elec-
: lon which may at any moment he ordered.
In that way they nre kept always ready to
do , as they arc going to do now , the whole
; iubllc work of a campaign that settles the
[ ate of a ministry nnd gives nsw shape to
domestic legislation and foreign pnllry within
the short cpaco of fourteen days. The
House of Commons consists ot 070 members.
Of this total Kngland will now elect 4C5 ,
Wnles 30 , Scotland 72 nnd Ireland 103. The
registered electors of the United Kingdom
numbered , by the last official count , 0,253-
( > 91 , which gives one sent In Parliament to
nn average of 9,190 voters. It Is certainly
n large electorate to bo canvassed , rallied ,
llrcd nlth party fervor and polled all In
twelve \\orklng days. A striking pecu
liarity of the pending general election Is the
large variety ot small parties or factions
which are seeking to establish themselves
us Independent groups , recognizing no al
legiance to cither great party. Manifestoes
hnvo been Issued by the National Ilcform
union , Vthlch repudiates Itoscbery's leader
ship as too moderate and demands sweeping
reforms , of which the abolition of the House
of Lords Is n lending feature ; also by the
Welsh nationalists , the local optlon-
Ists , the Publicans' association , social
ists , the Agricultural union , the Independent
labor party and by two antagonistic sections
of the Irish home rulers.
The labor department ot the Ilrltlsli Hoard
of Trade has Itsued a report on the employ
ment of women and girls , which sets forth
that In Great Britain women compete less
with men than ever they did. There has
been nn Increase In the actual number of
women employed In the trades and other oc
cupations , but that Increase has been pro
portionately much less than In the case of
men and boys. Statistics of several trades
nnd other employments are given to prove
these conclusions , as In employment / of
clerks ot various kinds It Is shown that
while the Increase among male employes
has been at the rate of 272 per each 100-
000 , among women and girls the Increase
has been only ninety-six to the same num
ber. These figures cover the decade 18S1-
1891. There Is not a single trade wherein
the employment of women has Increased
faster than that of men , and where the
number of male employes has fallen off the
number of females has fallen off In practically
the same proportion. Tlio reason given for
this state of things Is that as the earning
power of men Increases they usually pre
fer to keep their wives and daughters at
home , but whether this be the reason or
not tliere seems to bo little room for doubtIng -
Ing the fact.
Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria appears to bo
playing a double game In connection with the
disturbances In Macedonia. That , at any rate ,
u the Impression which has been created
throughout Europe by his suspicious behavior
In connection with the matter during the last
three months. It would bo difficult to con
ceive a more Insane policy nnd one which Is
more calculated to result In disaster for him
self and his principality. Ho occupies an
anomalous position , International treaty stipu
lations standing In the way of his official
recognition by the powers. The illegality of
his situation has been tolerated so long as It
was manifest that Ilulgaria , which may be re
garded as the offspring of the international
congress of 1S78 , was prospering under his
rule , and so long as It was seen that his
presence at Soda constituted a guarantee of
peace and honest government. Since Stambu-
jeff , however , who was for so long his mentor ,
has been ousted from office , the country
has been rapidly drifting into insolvency. Its
progress has been arrested , and Sofia seems
to be developing Into a source of intrigue ,
disturbance and conflict a crater. In fact , of
the everlasting and troublesome eastern ques
tion , -wWch has been the cause of so many
sanguinary wars. Prince Ferdinand's unde
niable encouragement of the risings against
Turkish rule In Macedonia bands of armed
Uulgars crossing the frontier at numerous
points to aslst the Insurgents Is attributable ,
of course , to his anxiety to please the czar's
government , which has hitherto constituted
ho principal cbsttcle to his recojnl'.lon by the
powers. That Russia Is Interested in these
risings la clear from the summons to St.
Petersburg of all the chief Muscovite consuls
In Macedonia for the purpose ot receiving the
fullest kind of Instructions from Prlnco Loha-
nod hlmeelf , and likewise from the tone of the
Pan-Slavlst press at Moscow and on the
banks of the Neva.
It is evident that the International geographical
graphical congress , which will meet In London
on the 26th Inst. , will provide many features
of popular as well as scientific Interest.
Among them will bo a series of maps showing
the development of English cartography from
the earliest period. There will also be an
interesting series of portraits of explorers
and geographers from the thirteenth and four
teenth centuries down to the present day. Mr.
Ravcnsteln Is constructing a series of globes
which will show the progress of the knowl
edge of the earth's surface from the remotest
historical period. The cartographic depart
ment will contain some very rare and Inter
esting old maps and other geographical curios
ities. The pictorial department will contain
a very largo collection of photographs and pic
tures representing types of scenery In all
parts of the world. A largo special building
has been erected In which to arrange the
Instruments which will form an Important
part of the exhibition. Besides a complete
collection of the most recent Instruments
employed for various geographical purposes
there will bo an historical series showing the
forms of Instruments used at various perloJs.
In this department also will be arranged sam
ples of travelers' equipments , Including com
pletely furnished tents and other objects of
Interest. Exhibits are arriving from all parts
of the world , and altogether the meeting
promises to be exceedingly successful.
A speech delivered In the Austrian Itelchs-
roth , during the debate upon eastern affairs ,
by Prof. Suess , a prominent political econo
mist , is attracting a good deal of attention.
After speaking of various commercial crises
and their causes , and the general advantages
of a liberal policy , he proceeded to say that
whenever eastern Asia was opened up to
trade the war would be no longer against
agricultural products , but against manufac
tured goods , nnd the struggle would be
carried on by the two empires , comprising
a population of 500,000,000. The Importance
of the treaty of Shlmonosekl did not lie In
Its territorial conquests , but In its moral
consequences. The greatest danger threat
ened to come from China. The coal fields
of Pennsylvania , which formed the back
bone of American national Industry , extended
over 1,200 square kilometers. There ex
isted In the Chinese province of Shan-sl a
coalfield extending over 34.000 square kilo
meters. U was without a rival In the world.
European diplomacy was doing Its utmost
to hasten the advent of that peril , Inasmuch
as everything "was being done to open up
China. At first markets might be found for
great quantities of European merchandise ,
but It was nevertheless certain that within
a very short tlmo the same goods would be
manufactured In China , whence they would
soon be exported. Whatever national sym
pathies and antipathies might exist. It waa
an unquestionable fact that the common
danger for the whole of middle Europe ,
from the Tagus to the Vistula , was one and
the same , and that the cause of their anx
iety was Identical. Prof. Suess concluded
by expressing the apprehension that ,
within a few decades , historians would write

speaks volumes for the sagacity and liberal
spirit of the most chivalrous and klmlly of

It Is a surprising fact , stated by Mr.
Joseph Choate In a recent address , that Eng
land , with lur 30,000,000 of people In round
numbers , docs not have so many Judges to
attend to her legal controversies as any one
of our larger states. She finds thirty-two
of the first class ample for all her wants ,
while New York has 110 , and Illinois 178.
There Is not so much litigation In England
as In our country , to be sure ; but the fact
remains , after making all proper allowance
In this respect , that our supply of Judges
Is excessive by comparison , and that the
courts over there dispose of cases more
rapidly than those of the United States. The
explanation lies largely In tbe complicated
nature of our Judicial machinery , the fa
cilities afforded for appeals and new trials ,
and the Indulgence granted to lawyers who
make It their business to delay and defeat
Justice. We boast of the practical way In
which we do things , and yet our laws and
forms of legal practice are such that It Is
Impossible to secure a prompt decision In
any case where It is to the Interest of either
party to prolong the proceedings. In the
enforcement of an ordinary contract , where
there Is really no dispute about the fact ,
the final result Is often unreasonably post
poned , and the costs thereby unnecessarily
The truth Is that In our anxiety to pro
vide ample means for the adjustment of
legal difficulties , wo have made our Judicial
system a source of endless trifling with the
Interests of the people. Our multiplicity
of statutes Is directly conducive to litigation ,
and the courts attach so much importance
to precedents and technicalities that the law
yers can kesp a case In course of trial al
most as long as they please. In England ,
whore there Is supposed to be much more
formality than In the United States , the
ordinary practice Is far less slow and un
certain than that which prevails here. We
have so many Judges and so many different
tribunals that a case may be taken from
one to another on various pretexts , and the
expense Is apt to exceed the amount Involved
In a majority of cases. There Is certainly
great need of reform In this matter. It
should bo easier for the average cltlzsn to
obtain a decision from some court of full
and final Jurisdiction , which Is to say tint
It should not be so easy for the lawyers
to protract all sorts of lawsuits. Too many
of our courts exist solely for the purpose
of giving solemn and leisurely consideration
to technical and unimportant pleas. The
whole system ought to be simplified , In
short , with a view to tavlng time and money
by removing all chances for cases to be con
tinued and transferred except for sound and
