Coslet residence in North Platte,
Rev. Cosjet officiating, occurred

bonds. Immediately after the
ceremony the bridal party entered
carriages and drove to the resi

this place, where a supper was
served at six o'clock to a few inti

ACTIOIT AGAINST THE U3TI0B" PACIFIC.
It is authentically reported that
the Department ot Justice contem
plates action to betaken at an early
date looking- to the foreclosure by
the Government ot the Union Pacif
ic mortgage, with the probability
also of simimilar proceedings
against the Central and Kansas
Pacific Such a step is considered
imperative to protect the Govern
ment's interest in these holdings,
and has only been deferred in view
of the pending- action by congress.
A large portion of the first mort
gage bonds, as well as second mort
gage, will mature with the begin
ning ot 1S97. The holders of the
first mortgage bonds would natur
ally have priority over the govern
ment, but it is said that the attor
nev general has construed the
ongiual and amended Pacific rail
road acts as conferring ample power
upon the government to proceed, ir
respective of any course which the
first mortgage holders may see fit
to take.
Four hundred and fifty millions
of dollars is a large sum; it is about
equal to the yearly income of the
goyernment of the United States.
Yet it is the amount that is owned
by persons of moderate means,
most of them wage-earners, in one
state ot the union. The deposits
in savings banks (the purely com
mercial deposits in other banks be
ing left out the reckoning) amount
to the vast sum that we have
named. Every year the insurance
companies pay out SS4.000,000,
much of it in sums ranging be
tween S100,000 and So. 000, to the
widows and orphans of deceased
insurers. The yearly earnings, by
way of interest, upon the deposits
in savings banks in New York ag
gregate 516,000,000. Who are the
capitalists? It is from the savings
banks and insurance societies that
cities borrow the money, secured by
municipal bonds, for the extension
of waterworks or for other civic
needs. The interest-bearing road
improvement bonds of the counties
are bought by these associations.
The farm loans (and mortgages) of
the far west come from these sour
ces. And, when the investment
seems unusually safe, street and
other railway companies borrow
from the vast capital of the sav
ings of labor. Inter Ocean.
LIFE IN GREAT CITIES.
Some of the Moral Dangers ad Seen bj
Professor Adler.
"The Moral Dangers of life In a
Great City" formed the theme of
Professor Felix Adler 's recent lec
ture in Carnegie halL Among other
things he said:
Among the difficulties of bringing
up children in the city is the get
ting of right associates for them.
The moral relation of neighborliness
is obliterated in a city. We don't
know our next door neighbor. We
don't know whether it is proper to
allow our children to associate with
others. Tho most powerful educa
tors of a child are his associates.
If you send your child to a school
attended by children of the wealthy,
these children will probably have
the outward polish of politeness,
but to take that for good morals is
the worst mistake in the world. If
you send your child to a public
school, you can have no idea as to
what associations he may form. A
remedy for this would be the estab
lishment of endowed schools, from
which the improper class could bo
weeded out. The public school evils
could be mitigated by making the
classes smaller, by the establish
ment of disciplinary schools and by
paying more attention to develop
ment of character as the aim and
end of education.
Another evil of cities is the repres
sion of children in play, which is
the exercise of faculties for the
pleasure of exercising them. Re
pression of play injures the child
physically and morally. In the cities
he is forbidden, to shout, to walk on
the grass in the parks or to pick
flowers, and the tenement house
children have no resource from
their two or three room homes but
the streets. The things they learn
there we all know. Children should
have winter as well as summer ex
cursions to the country. They should
have playgrounds in summer and
play halls in winter in the city.
My second point is the perversion
of the play instinct among adults.
We must all play. It is the preserv
ative of the mature. We need this
if we would keep them fresh and
elastic. Bright conversation, music,
the drama and games are modes of
play. Chess, checkers, whist, are all
healthful methods of play, but you
pervert all this the moment you
play for a stake, for the efficacy of
play is bringing the faculties into
disinterested exercise with no object
aimed at. Otherwise it becomes
something else gambling, for In-
