Kansas Is threatened with another
lrr calamity. This lliuo It Is not drouth ,
; rasHhoppcrs , chinch bugs or pro-
ilbltlon , but something more to be
rcaded than all the ten plagues of

list Issued a proclamation of uon-lutcr-
ourse , as a punishment of the per-
ersent'ss of the men , who monopolize
he glory of sitting on juries , playing
lollcemcn , packing caucuses and boss-
ng elections.
At the annual picnic of the Kqual

Here Is a threat that will strike terror
nto the heart of every man who cle-
icMids upon woman to cook his meals ,
lam liN socks and provide all the com
forts of home In this world , and work
Hit his salvation for the next. Tin-
M'Iglnator of this embargo is said to be
Mir ancient and respected friend ,
< usan It. Anthony , whose life's mis
sion has been to emancipate woman
'roni the galling yoke of male oppres
lint the question Is , Will the women
> f Kansas be able to fold their hands
ind keep them folded until they are
illowed to vote ? Will they carry out
his Interdict to its logical conclusionV
If the coercion of the unregenerate
Kunsan Turk is the real object of this
( solution , It should not have stopped
short of an absolute boycott. Why
should the embattled woman of Kan
sas refrain from charity and church
work and keep on with her drudgery
n the kitchen ? Why should the
women board and lodge their sons ,
rotliers , husbands and fathers so long
is they are denied' their sacred rights
o carry arms In defense of their coun
try and do battle for its salvation at
lie polls ? There is no doubt that
Ptisan H. Anthony struck the nail on
: he head when she advocated the policy
of non-lntercotirMt as the surest means
of bringing the men to time and having
he word "mule" stricken from the
statute books forever.
The number of American tourists In
Knrope and the amount of their ex-
K-iulltures on the other side of the At
lantic will be greater this summer
than ever before , with the possible ex
ception of the year 1880 , when the
Paris exposition attracted to Knrope
unusually large throngs of sightseers.
Indeed , from all accounts It would
seem that the number of Americans
now In Kuropo has never before been
equaled. At the fourth of July ban-
Itiet In London the difficulty was to
find places for even a moiety of the
iippllcants. and a large number of dis
tinguished Americans had to be left out.
At the Henley regatta last week the
attendance of Americans was the larg
est over known at any event of this
kind in Knglnud , and while the expla
nation of this Is found in the fact that
an American college crew took part
In the races It still shows that the
Apierlcan colony In London Is unprece-
dontedly numerous. A recent report
from Paris stated that so great has
been the Influx of Americans that hotel
accommodations were exhausted and
the visitors found no little dltllculty
In securing stopping places.
This extraordinary exodus means the
transfer of tens of millions of gold
from this country to Knrope , constitut
ing a very considerable factor in the
International exchanges and one that
largely contributes to the creation of
11 balance against this country. Inves
tigation recently made by an eastern
financial journal as to the annual
amount of travelers' credits showed it
to be about ? < ! 0 , < X)0,000 ) , but there Is
reason to believe that a larger sum
than this Is taken out of the country
almost every year , and there can be no
doubt that It will be exceeded this
year. It Is undoubtedly not an ex
aggerated estimate to place the amount
of money that will be expended by
Americans In Kurope this summer at
$75,000,000 , or about one-twentieth of
the currency of the country and about
one-seventh of the stock of gold in the
United States. Those who can realize
the magnitude of this expenditure may
wonder that so soon after n period of
industrial and business depression so
many of our people can afford the ex
pense of going abroad , but to a con
siderable proportion of these people a
foreign trip costs little if any more
than they would expend If they re
mained at home.Ocean travel Is not
very expensive and when abroad people
ple are not required to give entertain
ments , some of which at home cost
as much or more than would pay the
expense of a foreign tour. Of course
a great many who go abroad are not
of this class , and perhaps the aggre
gate expenditures of the people of mod
erate means Is greater than that of
the people of wealth who find In a
trip to Kurope pro'litable and needed
relief from the demands and exactions
of social duties and obligations.
Still the annual expenditure , steadily
growing , of Americans in Kurope. con
stitutes n drain which cannot be re
garded with satisfaction , since It Is an
outgo which promises to keep the bal
ance of International exchange agatnxl
this country Indefinitely. It Is Idle ,
however , to preach to insople who have
the means and the desire to go abroad
that for this or any other reason they
ought to stay In their own country and
find recreation and pleasure at tin-
many Inviting places to be found here
thus keeping their money at home
They will not be persuaded by an >
considerations either of duty or pa
trlotlsm to forego the annual journey
to foreign lands , whatever the dangen
or discomforts to be encountered. Wo
must , therefore , expect the annual ex
odus from America to Kurope to con
tinue In steadily swelling volume , tak
ing out of the country tens of millions
of dollars to be added to the wealth
of foreign lands.
The managers of the .State Fair as
sociation have acquitted themselves
creditably In expediting the construction
of the exposition buildings. Their tri
umphant completion within the next
sixty days Is an assured fact , providing
the men most largely Interested In the
growth and prosperity of Omaha now
come forward and do their duty. While
It Is true that the magnitude and num
ber of exposition buildings and the
embellishment of the grounds by far
exceeds the expectations of the promoters
meters of the enterprise , and therefore
Involves a much larger outlay than was
anticipated , there can be no halting ,
faltering or cheeseparing at this junc
ture. The work must be pushed to com
pletion with unabated vigor and the
moans must be raised to meet every
bill as It becomes due. The business
men of Omaha , notably the retail mer
chants , have done nobly In support of
the enterprise. In fact , they have done
a great deal more than their due pro
portion toward redeeming the obliga
tions which the State Fair association
had Incurred when the location was
tlxed at Omaha. On the other hand ,
the heavy real estate owners and bank
ers have not come up to the mark.
They have under various pretexts put
oft the llnnnclnl committee with very
moderate contributions or absolute re
fusals to contrblnte and by their want
of public spirit discouraged the men
who have devoted their best energies
and many months of time toward mak
ing the fair a great success and thereby
advertising Omnhn as she has not been
advertised for years. The time Is now
at hand when something must be done
by the men of means who are vitally
concerned In Omaha's Immediate future.
These men must come forward with
supplementary subscriptions to the
slock of the association or contribu
tions toward the completion of the
buildings aud final grading and orna
mentation of the grounds. Omaha
never has done things by half ways
aud she cannot afford now to recede
from the task which her best business
men have undertaken.

The Christian Endeavor convention
at Boston , where between -10,000 and
50.000 delegates of that organization are
assembled , is the greatest religious gath
ering ever known , as the society which
it represents is perhaps the largest po
tent force in the Christian world at
present. The membership of the En
deavor organization numbers consider
ably more than li.000,000 , far outclass
ing In numerical strength the old fra
ternal organizations , such as the Free
Masons and the Odd Fellows. By way
of indicating- the numerical superiority
of this society a contemporary remarks
that the CJrand Army Of the Kop'ublle
is still a mighty host , but the Christian
Kndeavorers outnumber the Grand
Army veterans four to one. Indeed ,
they are more numerous than the Odd
Fellows , the Masons and the Grand
Army men combined. The American
Federation of Labor Is a vast and pow
erful organization , but it might be re
inforced by the full strength of the
Knights of Labor aud the sum doubled
without reaching the two million mark
passed by the wonderful army of young
Christians whose annual convention Is
now filling Boston with the flower of
the rising generation lu many evan
gelical churches of the United States.
The progress of this organization has
been wonderful and that It Is a most
powerful Instrumentality in promoting
the Christian religion Is shown In the
reports of the Increase It has made dur
ing the past year. Composed of ear
nest , enthusiastic and zealous young
workers , It Is a persistent force that
makes Itself constantly felt wherever
established. Originated in this coun
try , the purpose is to make It world
wide , mid the attainment of this Is
only a"question of time. The forma
tion of a World Christian Endeavor
union is one of the matters under con
sideration at the Boston convention , and
Its accomplishment Is certain. There
is no matter of current interest In
which Christian people are more deeply
concerned than In the deliberations of
the great meeting of Kndeavorers at
The restoration of Industrial activity
In the. United States , making an im
proved demand for labor at bettor
wages , will undoubtedly have the effect
to Increase the number of Immigrants ,
The Immigration of 18)4 ! ) was the small
est for many years and it Is believed
almost as many people loft the country
as came Into It , so that there was no
material Increase of imputation from thr
addition of aliens. The hard time *
hero caused thousands of people to re
turn to their native countries , where the
conditions wore no worse than In this *
country and where some of those whc
returned found work enough to at loasl
enable them to sulwlst. It is naturally
expected that many of these people will
come back to the United States as soon
as they feel assured that the Improve'
ment in business Is likely to continue
and that others who desire to bettoi
their condition will also come. I'U'
doubtodly the present year will show n
larger Immigration than hist year and 11
Industrial activity goes on the numbei
of Immigrants next year will be large !
than for several years past.
In anticipation of this the advocate ?
of greater restriction upon Immigration
are manifesting a fooling of apprchcn
sum that there will be too many peopli
come here from the old world and thai
there Is danger of an Influx of paupers
criminals and other classes whom the
laws say shall bo excluded. It Is note
worthy that the opposition to liumlgm
tlon does not now take quite so radlca
a form as It did a few years ago. Thoi
public men and newspapers ndvocatoi
extreme measures , the effect of which
if put Into oM'nitlon ] , would be to com
pletely put a stop to Immigration. Bu
I slucu the south has been seeking to at
tract ImniigrajiiHv and some of the
states of the northwest have shown n
desire to liicnm * * their population and
their productive grower In this way , the
people who wanted to close our ports
against the alit'ir2deslrlng to better his
condition In this republic have modified
their demand. ' T'fioy ' still talk of more
rigid restriction , but they are no longer
clamoring for legislation that would
shut out the gopfl as well as the bad of
foreign lauds \iil \ | leavc this country to
grow lu population by natural Increase
alone , a proceAgf development which
' '
would groatly'dclay , the realization of
our "manifest destiny. " The antl-lmml-
grntionlsts now profess to bo greatly dis
turbed lest we shall be overrun by an
Invasion of diseased , pauperized and
morally pestilent foreigners.
There Is n reason for any fear on
this score so long as the national
authorities faithfully enforce the laws.
Congress has made ample provision In
the existing statutes for excluding from
the country every clns * of undesirable
persons coming from foreign lands and
If those statutes are strictly regarded
by those whoso duly It Is to execute
them there will ho no cause of com
plaint. For the past four or "live years
: hese laws have been very well en
forced. It will not be denied that dur-
ng that time a few of the excluded
classes have found their way Into the
country , but the number of such has
) een very small and there has not been
recently any charge from the vigilant
organs of the anti-Immigration element
that foreign paupers , crinfinals or other
objectionable persons were getting a
foothold on American soli , which may
: > e accepted ns good assurance that none
ire doing so.
We believe the existing laws are all
that are needed to protect us against un-
leslrablo Immigrants if they are strictly
ind honestly administered , and certainly
no addition to them Is to be desired the
tendency of which would be to increase
the ditllcultles In the way of worthy
immigrants , for whom there Is still
room aud opportunity lu this great
The suppression of Senator Blackburn
by the democratic state committee of
Kentucky Is a severe blow to the politi
cal hopes of that gentleman ami a dis
tinct notice that the sound money demo
crats of the state do not Intend to give
any countenance or toleration to the
free silver element. Blackburn is one
of the most radical advocates of free
silver in ( lie southuthongh by no means
one of the nbli'st , and while ho declared
some time ago liaf lie was disposed to
submit to the williof the majority he
has persisted In 1iW"free silver advocacy.
Ills desire Is fo be re-elected to

fect will doubtloB'Jbe to Intenslfy-jind

vailed among tlioi'democrats prior to
their state convention. The outlook for

If there are still a few people In

There Is one way to compel the people

that is to close up every avenue to the

According to reliable advices , the
trustees of the Institute for the Blind

The two institutions , however , stand

the state board has jurisdiction over the

not also seek to exert the same authority
with reference to the Institute for the

The Increase of business for the federal
courts comes largely from the attempt to
burden them with business that they have
nothing properly to do with. Their time Is
largely employed In rejecting over
which the state courts have exclusive Juris
diction. Things have come to such a pass
that a lawyer , particularly zealous for his
criminal client , who may have violated a
state law by committing murder or burglary ,
does not feel satisfied till he has made an
attempt to get the case Into the supreme
court of the United States.

A curious return to 'old-time paternalistic
practices is observable In certain sections of
the wesi. Several towns In Minnesota and
also In Iowa have adopted ordinances requir
ing all children of 1C years and under to be In
their homes after the town bell has rung out
the hour of 9 o'clock p. m. Now the city of
Duluth , Minn. , which Is about the slzo of
ftolyoke , has adopted a similar practice.
After the curfew boll has rung , any youth or
child found on the streets without a written
permit from parents or guardians Is liable to
arrest. The effect on the mental and moral
developments of the rising generation Is ex
pected to amply Justify the departure back to
the practices of early days.

Chicago Dispatch : Cornell's defeat In the
Henley regatta by the Trinity Hall
crew proved qulto conclusively one of two
things either the American crew was badly

There was nothing In their past record to
Justify them In thrusting themselves forward
as representative American oarsmen to match
a picked crew cf the e.lte of the university
rowers of Great Britain. The result proved
that they were kids whose Inadequate phyil-
cal stamina had probably been ex'nausteJ by
overtraining and they were so far outclassed
by their competitors that It was a piece of
foolhardy presumption on their part to set
thtmselves up as the champions of America
against the crack oarsmen of Oxford and
Cambridge. Their conduct In other respect !
did not reflect any luster on the American
Detroit Free Press : The climate was such
as to preclude their being In the best ( condi
tion , but when all the facts are known It
will probably appear that Trainer Courtney
was far from being the man for the p uce.
There Is evidence that lie exacted too much
from his men , sending them over the couruo
at top speed far oftener than was be t and
calling upon them for more work than was
required after they were In good form. Be
sides this Courtney Is nof a man to Inspire
a crew with courage , for he has none to Im
part. His record Is that of one of the fast
est oarsmen In the world who never had the
heart to make a good fight against a worthy
opponent. It Is still generally believed that
ho sawed his boat to avoid a race with Han-
Ian and Just when he should have been with
th ? Cornel B nt Henley , cheering , reassuring
and encouraging them lie was reported on
tha sick Hit. The boys were something In
the condition of soldiers deserted by their
leader and this alone would go far toward
bringing about their defeat. They were
beaten , but there Is galUfactlon In knowing
that they did not play the part of bully or
disgrace either their alma mater or the
country by their conduct.

Now York Tribune : A pious Malno lum
berman recently purchased a gold brick of a
plausible and seemingly opulent stranger , g-et-
tlng It at a reduced rate in which there ap
peared to be a handsome profit. The brick
turned out as usual , greatly to the surprise
of the purchaser , who supposed that all bul
lion of that kind was Issued by the United
States treasury and was as good as the metal
of which It pretended to bo composed. It
was subsequently learned that the only readIng -
Ing which the lumberman In question had
permitted himself for the last twenty years
was the printed copies of Talmage's sermons ,
which reached him weekly , containing any
amount of religious precept and admonition
and promise , but nothing about "gold bricks"
and the dark and sinuous ways of the plausi
ble strangers who vend them. Thus the
credulous and pious purchaser Is a loser In
the sum of seven or eight thousand dollars ,
which might have been saved to him If his
favorite parson had devoted a single ex
haustive and systematic discourse to the
subject of bullion , specifying Its different
varieties nnd showing the kinds that ought to
bo avoided as an Investment. As Talmage
has talked about nearly everything , religious
and other , In the last quarter of a century , It
seems strange that he has not taken the
trouble to unveil to his hearer ? and readers
the wicked schemes of the gold brick man , as
well as the lightning rod man and other
Itinerary workers of Iniquity.
