The rejection of the revenue
which the Wife bill provides for
is .now pat at $82,000,000 by the
bill's framn. An wcrease to fully
this amoMt aad not a decrease is
what tbe rituation demands.
Sewato Stoma predicts that
theWitooa bill will be pawed in
time to Uke effect July 1, 1894,
whicm mm that it will go into
operation in ample time to insure
the election of a republican bouse
The Chicago republicans did not
succeed in electing their candidate
for mayor, but they cut down last
year's democratic majority otdo.uuu
to a beggarly plurality of less than
1200, and there is a good deal of
glory in such a showing.
The big figures which recount
the return of immigrants to Europe
from the United States make agree
able reading. The labor market in
this country has been immensely
overstocked since the panic began,
and the larger the emigration is
among the unemployed the better
for those who remain.
Unless the unexpected happens,
Corbett and Mitchell will face each
other in Florida in about five weeks,
and the public generally hope that
both men will suffer punishment
sufficient to keep them out of the
ring forever. Fistic encounters are
too brutal to receive encouragement
from the people of this supposed
W. L. Green, Kearney's more or
less respected citizen and a well
known independent yawper, is lying
kis plans to capture the seat in con
frress sunnosed to be occupied by
Omer Kern. If Bill should be nomi
nated and elected, which is hardly
a possibility, he would be an im
provement over the present nonetity
who claims to represent this district.
The Homestead mills of Carnegie
& Co. closed down Saturday night
for want of orders and three thous
and men were thrown out of em
ployment. This means that from
twelve to fifteen thousand men,
women and children will battle with
hunger and cold durintr the winter.
and pray for those "democratic good
times," which were promised us
over a year ago.
The rule or ruin policy of the
Bee editor is being keenly felt by
' that paper, and a decrease of 2,000
in its circulation since the JSovem
ber election has resulted. If Mr.
Rosewater expects the republicans
of the state to pay off the mortgage
on the Bee building he will do well
to vacate the position of dictator
which he assumed of his own voli
Governor Waite, of Colorado,
has abandoned his campaign of
blood and begun one of fire. To
delegates to the Colorado Business
Men's Convention the other day he
said: "I am in favor, so far as I am
concerned, of fighting for the free
coinage of silver at 16 to 1, not all
summer, but till h 1 freezes over."
The Governor had not better try
the ice; there may be a trap laid
Thp Chicago papers, irrespective
of party, are saving many good
words for Col. W. F. Cody, who
they regard as a possible and prob
able candidate for goyernor of Ne
braska on the democratic ticket next
fall. Being in an almost hopeless
minority in the state, the democrats
to stand any show of electing their
candidate, must have a man who
will command complimentary votes
in every election precinct, and this
we believe Colonel Cody would be
able to doT The Tribune is not

being published at the home of
"Buffalo Bill" it naturally desires

There are 18,000 idle working
people in lroy, .N. 1., with a popu
lation of only 61,000. These idle
wage-earners held a mass meeting
a few evenings ago, the presiding
officer being the democratic mayor
of the city, and resolutions de
nouncing the Wilson bill were
passed. But it will do no srood, re
marks the Inter Ucean. The Jeal
and Watterson Chicago platform
must be redeemed and defended if
it closes up every work shop in the
United States. Washington bosses
are opened-eyed in wonder that pa
triotic democrats are not willing to
send their wives and children hun
gry to bed to accomplish the great
results of "living up to the plat-
iorm. They have shut their eyes
and stopped their ears, and do not
propose to see or hear of the na
tion s sorrows.
The speech of Congressman Wil
liams, oi Mississippi, on the pen
sion question is a refreshing bit of
good sense from an unexpected
source, says an exchange. He rep
reseats a bourbon democratic dis
trict, he declares, "in which there is
perhaps not a single federal pen
sioner except a few negro teamsters
and cooks;" but his democratic
constituents have a great love
of abstract justice, he goes on
to say, and therefore he considers
it his duty to assume that when a
man's name is on the pension rolls
it means something and that the
status of such man ought not to be
changed without giving him due
notice and a fair opportunity to
vindicate his claims. "I think,"
he says, "that being on the pension
roll is a prima facie reason, though
not a conclusive one, for supposing
that the man deserves a pension
This is certainly reasonable, and it
is difficult to understand how-a dif
ferent view can honestly be enter
tained. Names are not placed on
the pension roll without systematic
investigation by men trained to the
work of analyzing evidence, and
having no personal or pecuniary
interest in the matter. When a
case has been passed upon it im
plies that all of the facts have been
fully 'considered, and that the claim
comes within the provisions of the
law. There is little or no dicretion
left to the officials of the pension
office. They are required to observe
the terms of plain and specific acts
of congress, and to insist upon fixed
forms of proof, which must appear
in the record. It is not at all like
ly that under such conditions any
considerable number of fraudulent
claims have been allowed.
Times are changing and public
sentiment is changing in Nebraska.
The glamor of false lights and the
glare of discordant instruments are
losing their effect and the people
are rapidly coming to see that troth
is troth, reason is reason and com
mon sense is common sense all the
world oyer. The reformer who
slips up to the farmer like a snake
and whispers in his ear that his
neighbor, whom he has known and
trusted for twenty years, is a thief,
a robber and cut throat because he
has not voted the same ticket the
farmer has, does not meet with the
same ready acquiescence that he did
a couple of years ago. Sensible
men are . not so willing to admit
that they have been robbing them
selves and their neighbors willfully
and maliciously all the years that
they have been voting the republi
can ticket. They are beginning to
recollect what they once knew so
well, that a republican is at least as
patriotic, as honest and as loyal to
what he thinks is right as a shjffl
ing, snifiting office-hunter, who is
ready to believe anything or advo
cate anything that will get him a
few votes. Out of all the noise and
fuss, out of all the false chargesand
false accusations, the republican
party rises stronger, purer and
grander than ever. The cheap false
hoods that have been told about it
have been exposed and the weak
and manifestly false assumption of
other parties to be nearer or truer
to the interests of the people have
found their level. The time is past
when it is good policy to charge the
republican party with corruption or
professed republicans to admit that
it is so and claim to be better than
their party. York Times.
Secretary Oarliile's Beport.
The report of the secretary of
the treasury, which is this year de
layed two weeks beyond its usual
time for presentation, famishes
some highly interesting facts, sug
gestions and deductions concerning
the finances of the government. An
excess of $90,000,000 in expendit
ures over revenue for' Hie five
months ending on December 1st of
the fiscal year is pointed out. bnt
the shortage on this account at the
end of the year on July 80th next,
it is figured, will amount to only
$28,000,000. This conclusion is
based on the assumption, which is
not altogether an unreasonable one,
mm a . l
tnat the worst effects or the panic
being over, governmental income
will exceed outgo in the remainder
of the year. The secretary asks
from congress the power to sell
bonds not exceeding $200,000,000
in amount, at not less than par in
coin, at lower rates of interest and
for shorter terms than those pro
vided for in existing law.
On the general subject of the
finances the secretary is not lavish
in suggestions or recommendations
for new legislation. He calls atten
tion to the drawbacks and dangers
arising from the great diversity in
. m m
the lornis ot currency which we
possess, but he makes no positive
proposal looking toward a remedy
Evidently he favors the coin ace of
the silver seigniorage, which
amounts to about $55,000,000,
though he does not directly ask for
any such legislation. As the treas
ury performs, to a certain extent,
the functions of a bank of deposit
as well as a bank of issue, he points
out the inadequacy of the powers
of its controlling head, as compared
with those enjoyed by the officials
of the great national and state
banks, to promptly and effectually
guard .the interests under his charge
in all contingencies. Eight here
he thinks that legislation which
would make the treasury depart

influences and interests is urgently
