TJIK democratic issue for 1881 ia to "bo civil service reform. It is likely to prove ai ellectivo aa llio last issue of that party , which was "fraud. " \ \ TIIIIRK Tammany senators were in jured in the Hudson llivor railroad accident. The monopolies are getting even with John Kelly and his little tomahawk. THE Republican haa suddenly dis covered that the St. Elmo is a disreputable - putablo resort. The "hindsight" of the Republican always comes in play when it costs nothing to declare it. GOVP.KKOII HOVT , of SVyoming , in his annual message , is seriously agi tated about the moral condition of the territory. Ho neglects entirely to make any statement of the effects of woman Biiffrago in restricting crime and maintaining order. Perhaps the enfranchisement of the Shoahonesand liannacks is necessary for n full and fair trial of universal auU'rago , and its results in securing a pure and ideal government in Wyomintt. Tnr. appeal from the mana era ol the Young Men's Christian Associa tion to the people of Omitha , whicli appears elsewhere in our columns , needs no explanation. The aims , character nnJ standing of this excel lent organization are Veil known , and trill readily commend themselves to our citizens. The work of the Asso ciation is universal. Ita object is to improve the condition of our young men , furnish them means for recrea tion and enjoyment which will draw them from bad and immoral resorts , and generally to exercise such an influence over their charactci aa to make them hnppiei men nnd hotter members of ( society , In the furthering of this work tht Omaha Young Men's Christain Asso elation must largely depend upon tin good will nnd kind assistance of oui people. They greatly need increased facilities for work , including a gyninaa iura , and appeal to the generous citl zona of Omaha to aid them in a mia aion which is in the highest degree im portant and praiseworthy OMAHA AND DENVER- The Denver papers have again sc to work to pull down Omaha for tin benefit of Denver. They have started od an absurd rumor that the Uniot Pacific are about to remove the ! shops to Denver from Omaha and figure uro out an additional 10,000 popula tiou on the batis of the rumoret change. They claim that Omaha ha grown up at the expense of Denve : and has been unduly favored In the Union Pacific in buildiiif up her trade in the west. Until thi consolidation of the Kansasuiul Uniot Pacific Denver was on a rival Inn and h&dj all the advantages of compo iition besides the claimed advantage being nearer the territories thai Omaha. At the present time tha city is not on the main line of th Union Pacifio road and anything dente to build up Denver at th expcnuo of the main line woul bo a violation of the trust impose upon the managers by the terms c the charter and their bonded obligi iiona. If Omaha baa derived advantage from the ah ops of the Union Pacif uho has paid well for them and tli company haa obligated itself in written contract to keep and malntai iU shops in Omaha in consideration i ibe donation of the grounds and largo amount of bonds , given at time when the company was in final cial distress , and the bonds were i immense advantage to its stool loldora. Omaha is not at all alarmedovorth effort of Denver to get these ehopa The r recent enlargement indicate that the company regards Omaha i the moat economical location' , an they have bad ample opportunities t lenrn this fact. The greatest obstoclo in the \vi\y of Denver potting these shops is the fact tli.it cvurythmg in Denver is inflated beyond nil reason. The price of living , lodging nnd nil domestic comforts tire uxtravngiuitly high in tlmt city. In Omaha nil the Union 1'ncilio workingmun can ncqniro comfortable lionica , nnd ninny of thorn nlrcndy posseni Ihnm. In Denver n building lot ia out of the reach of common people , nnd n house for runt in considered n greater bonan/.a than thu Little PittHbtirg or the ChryHolito. Denver is not n good place for poor people to live in , although n good place for rich men to die in. Denver wnnU to bo the rivnl of Omaha but she lucks the most sub stantial element of permanent growth which dependn less on wholesale trallic than on manufacturing inter- oslo. Denver ban capital enough nnd she is near the inincB , but yet Colorado ahios large quan tities of ere to Omilm to bo reduced in her smelling works. Den ver in near ( ho coal nnd iron beds of Colorado , but Omaha's nnil works supply the Colorado markets. And RO it is with many other pro'nets which Omaha furnishes to the stntcn and territories wont. There is no rival ry in that , however , because Denver is not even nblo to cope with her nearest rival , Pueblo , in the matlor of man ufactures , nnd as to commerce Denver had better tackle Kansas City nnd St. Joe wtioso merchants cut that city out of their Southern Colorado , Now Mexico nnd Arizona business. Upon the whole , it strikes us that the Den ver papers will make a good deal loss capital by trying to pull Omaha down than by sustaining legitimate efforts to make the resources of Colorado trib- utiry to the growth and prosperity of their city. GOVERNOR SHERMAN'S IN- AUGURAL. The inaugural addroin of Governor iuron Sherman is highly creditable > Town's now chief executive. It is n iloar , compact nnd comprehensive refutation of the topics in which the eoplo of the great nnd growing com- umucalth of Iowa have iv deep intor- it. On the subject of temperance Governor Sherman declares himself implwlically in favor of presenting n institutional amendment to the poo- ilo of the state on the ground that , ho majority party is irrevocably > ! edgcd to this course and that com- ion honesty compels nn enforcement f such pledges. Under the consti- ution two successive legislatures must tass resolutions defining the provin- us of every proposed amendment .o . the existing constitution. This action having boon taken by the Inst ccnur.il assembly legislation by ho present legislature will bo neccs- lary before n direct vote of the poo- ilo can bo brought to boar upon the Inal determination of the question. Next in importance the governor ouches upon the question of trans- ortation , in which ho truthfully ns- ortn that every citiznu is highly in- ntorostcd. lloforonco is made to .ho commissioner system now in oper ation in the state nnd nn earnest plea s mndo for n further trial of what mist still bo considered an experiment in dealing with great problem. Governor Sherman expresses a strong hope that ho national government will exorcise ta authority in the premises and at- 'ord the country such relief as cannot bo procured from state legislation. In his hope ho will bo joined by every producer in the west. After touching upon the topic of river improvement the common school question is handled concisely nnd temperately. The pl.\n of general taxation tor school purposes is coin- mended na having proved in the highest degree satisfactory. Eleven thousand school houses nnd 122,000 teachers attest the extent of Iowa s facilities , while the fact that n tax iimounting to § 1,000,000 annually is cheerfully paid by her people is 'tho Burust evidence that the state is do- toriiiined to maintain a system whinh has already placed her high in the ranks where illiteracy is at u discount and culture nnd rofmomont form the basis of n free ballot nnd onlightenoU public sentiment. In concluding his remarks on this topic , Governor Sherman urges such legisla tion as will compel the attendance o ; children at the public schools uiu diminish the per contago of truancy tc the school population. In dealing with the public charities the inaugural recommends a state supervisory board for the collection o ! such facts as would furnish ad ditiotml information , such as would render dor easier nnd moro correct logislativ action. The entire expense ot main Uniing the various state charitabl inutitutions for thu past year is state < at over half a million dollars this , thi sum not including the agriculturn colloco or the hospital for the insane The same method of state supervise is recommended for the penitentiaries The governor urges n chnngo in th laws respecting highways , whic would make all taxes payable i money , to bo expended under th authority of the township roadmastor recommends sufu'cient appropriation to complete the state capital , and con eludes by congratulating the peopl on the prosperous condition of th tale , her rapid growth and incrons- ng agricultural and commercial ini- > ortance. WESTERN RAILROAD PRO- GRESS. The now year begins with a vigorous nnvcmont nlong the now lines. From ho northern extremity of VVnshinglon errilory to nnd beyond the Mexican > order on the south , nnd the Missis- ippi on the east , the ccasolctu echo of ho shovel , pick nnd slcdgo-hnmmor 11 the air , inspiring fresh vigor nnd ctivity everywhere. The continuance f mild weather gives the year n , jood tart , which will be materially felt when the const motion record is closed year hence. The pulse of business lifo in Mon- nna is quickened to n remarkable do- rco by the rapid advance of the great ron civilizaiM from the cast , ucst nnd onth. The Northern Pacific , besides lie construction of the main line by vay of Helena nnd Mullnn Pass , has ilnnncd n comprehensive system of eedors to tnp every important buai- CHS center in the territory. Presi- ent Villard is credited with the re- lark that during thu present year his ompany will wipe out all pro- ious records of fast railroad building. Vilh .1,000 men operating on the vcstern end and nn equal number on .he cast , the gap of less than 700 nilcn in Montana will be reduced to n insignificant distance before the nd of the year. On the Ctli of Jan- larv the first blow was struck on the unnel through the granite backbone f the Rockies , fifteen miles from lelcna. Every prominent citizen of lie town gathered on the foothills to olobrato an event fraught with im- icdiato nnd lasting benefits to the ity nnd territory. As The Herald nits it , "It was a day that will bo ver memorable in the history of Montana. The pipes of Lucknow did lid not sound more welcome to the leleagnored EngliHh than the sound > f thnso drills on the granite Hanks of .ho Kooky mountains. " Eighteen nonths will bo required to complete and in the meantime work will ) ogin on the Uutto City branch , with view of giving ( ho people of Wash- nylon an eastern outlet by way of the Jtah it Northern the coming autumn. The recent visit of Manager Peter - or , of the Chicago , Burlington & Quincy , to Denver , Salt Lake City ind the Pacific coast luia given risu to variety of rumors concerning the ) lans of the company nnd the possi bility of building nn independent out- et to the Pacific That this is the ultimate object of the company there can bo no doubt. The alliance with ; ho Denver & llio Grande was the iirat step in the direction of the Golden den Gate. This latter company has wi-omptod every toot of ground in , ho mountain passes through which il s now building , monopolizing the ihortcot nnd most practicable routes ; o the Salt Lake valley. The route of the proposed California Central mugs it to n junction with the Rio jlrando at Iron City , in southern Utah , making the distance from Den ver to San Francisco about 1,20C miles. The laying of a third rail on .ho . Hio Grande would require but n our months time. The line of the for mer company through the Sierra Ne vada mountains is said to bo much su- > orior to the Central Pacifio , with easy grades the entire dis- ice , not moro than one per cent. The idea of making Denver the final terminus of the road iias not boon entertained by the pro- ureatuvo managers of the Burlington , nnd the completion of the Denver ox- .onsion next summer , will develop far nero extensive plans than that out lined above. The branch of the Denver it Rio irando between Salt Lake City and I'rovo is approaching completion. The lifliculty of obtaining ties retarded ; ho work somewhat. Two hundred raders are leveling the road bed in , ho Uncompahauro valley. The com pany has completed the l.iying of the third rail from Denver to Pueblo , whore it connects with the Atchison , Topcka it Santa IV road , and the lira I regular Santa Fo train ran into Den ver on the 8th. The distance to Kan sas City by this ronto ia nearly 100 miles more than by the Kansas Paci fic , yet this disadvantage has hereto fore proved no obstacle in the way o securing a share of the Colorado bus ! ness. The advantage of the Oinahn short line , and the recent inaugura tlon of fast trains on the K. P. , has not yet paralyzed the Santa Fo , it fact the company has always basket on the sunny side of favor in the centennial tonnial state. Oregon and Washington Territory will bo the paradise of railroad build era the present year. The domain for laborers is unexampled , far beyond yond the supply. Two to two-fifty a day is the general wages for ordinary laborers and 1.500 are wanted by the 1st of March. Last year's experience was far from satisfactory , nnd thi ye r thu company will put on the grades from one to two thousoiu Chinamen. This seems to bo tin only alternative. A steamer is now being loaded at San Francisco will goods for Hong Kong , chartered tc transport a full cargo of coolies fron the latter port to Portland. The Northern Pacific proposes to put dowt 300 luiloa of iron west of the rock ice ho present year. The Portland cor respondent of the ChiiMgo Tribune states tha ttho company's plans em- > race an extension of the California and Oregon line from the present tor- niiius at Roseburg to Ashland , in the ; 5oyer llivor Valley , distair 1-12 niles. The extension from Kalamn to Portland will also bo constructed and possibly the line from Ainsworth on the north bank of ihn Columbia river. This road will run parallel with the Oregon railway nnd Navi gation line , rnd is intended to s'lut mt other companies from the field The 0. K. it N company will com- ilcte their line between the D.illes md Portland 121 miles in length , and several shorter branches to open up .ho rich country in Eastern Washing ton and Northern Idaho. Two other roads are under contract which will liiuctly interest the people of Omaha , Nobr.uka , and the west generally. J'hu first is the Umalilln extension of the O. R. & N. line to Baker City , a Hstanco of 158 miles , \\hero it will connect with the Oregon short line of the Union Pacific. The second is the OregonPacific ) , whoso managers have made n bold start towards a road 'rotn Yaquina Bay , on the Oregon coast , about IfiO miles southwest of Portland , directly through William- otte valley and across the cascades , and on , through the rich pasture and , 'rain lands of southern Wasco county and the mining and stock districts of Grant and Baker counties , to Boise City , in Idaho. During the past year nuch preliminary work has been done n the way of gradiir. , getting out ; imbor , and preparing for work on an extensive scale in the spring. The right of way agents of the Or egon short line have penetrated the lo.irt of Idaho , receiving enthusiastic welcomes nnd liberal aid everywhere. The line will cross the Utah & North ern at Pocatella , not at Portnouf , ai stated last week. Instead of tunnel ing near Granger the road has been twill around in the valley , in order to prevent dolny in pushing material to the front. The tunnel will also bo built , ai it will shorten the line con siderably nnd obviate the necessity of snow ahcds. The road will rrach and probably go beyond Hailoy before the cloHo of the year. Branches will bo built to nil important mining cam pa nnd towns in the tjrritiuy. The Sioux City iv. P.-.cific Black Hills extension is being pushed be yond Long Pino. A company hatj been organized at Rapid City to run a stage line from the latter point and Dendwood to the end of the track , which will give travelers nnd shippers a great advantage in time and expense over existing routes. The distance by stage will be much shortei than from Sidney or Ft. Pierre. Long Pine , being the supply depot ol the construction force , is growing rap idly and substantially , and the estab lishment of a stage line to the Hill : will give it an additional impetus. The project of the Northern Pacific to build n branch to the British Pos sessions has been definitely settled. The road will start from the main line at Garfield , in Walsh county , Dakota nnd runs to Pcmbina , two miles fron the British lino. It will traverse t wonderfully rich wheat growing coun try , idready well settled by smal farmers. This plug road is dcsiguoc to head off the St. Paul , Minnonpolii Mnnitobi company , and a livolj struggle is looked for. The Union Pacifio has purchased i bankrupt concern in Colorodo , knowr as the Denver , Western & Pacific paying $000,000 for forty-nine milei of completed road. Contractors ant laborers , who have worked fou ; months without pay , are the only per sons who profited by the transaction This is the concern which suddenly revived last fall when the B. tc M began operations nt Denver. The mysterious movements of t corps of Union Pacific surveyors it the Cedar and Loup valleys havi thrown eevernl prospective railroat centers into a second heaven. Tin press of Nance county are jubilan over tno certainty of a railroad througl the county at an early day. All ac counts agree that the work of tin engineers ia n review of lines hereto fore laid out in order to secure tin shortest nnd at the same time tin easiest route to the mineral fields o Dakota. The choice lies between tin Loup aud Cedar valleya with odds ii favor of the former. It is quite pos aiblo that the road will branch on from the Columbus and Norfolk extension tension nnd cross the table lands be tween Beaver and Cedar creeks an < Loup river in a northwestern direc tion. The activity of rival lines ii Northern Nebraska will force the U P. to build the road to protect it interests , and a few months will re Hove interior towns of the agony o suspense. The metropolis of Gage county i coming to the front with a loui whang as a railroad center. Th Beatrice Express details an importan movement on the part of the B. J M. , which will result in the construe tion of an entirely now road fron that town through Gage and Johnsoi counties to Nemaha City. This i part of the long settled plan of tin company to make the "lower road' ' the through line to Denver. A bridgi over the Missouri at that point , and i connection with the 0. , B. it Q , ii will inako the road from ChicAgo cAge to Denver aa straight and short as can bo built. To secure the con- ( ruction of the fifty-nine miles be tween Beatrice r.nd Nemaha City two nortgogos have been filed in favor of the Now England Trust company. The mortgages cover the southern line , nearly built , and the now line from Beatrice , and call for $20,000 per mile nnd $10,000 additional in case n double track should bn built. In addition to this , Beatrice is cer tain of thu U. P. extension from Lincoln , the survey of which has been completed. When this branch is finished , which will bo early in the season , Beatrice will have a direct rail route to St. Louis by way of the central branch of the Union Pacific in Kansas and a choice of roads to Oinahn. A bill was introduced in the lower liouao of congress last Tuesday to grant a charter to the Sioux City Vr Pacific company to bridto ; the Mis souri nt n point yet to bo nnmod. The engineers of the company have not yet decided upon a site. Blair , Dccatur nnd Tekamah are each anx- oiis to secure the coveted prize. Track laying on the Norfolk exten sion of the Chicago , St. Pnul & Oinahn road ia progressing nt the rate if half a milo n day. The distance i.s eighteen miles , which will probably bo finished by the Ifithof next month. This will make Norfolk nn extensive railroad town , three trunk lines fen- tering there. The Denver extension of the B. it M. reached n point thirty miles be yond the Nebraska state line on the , 12th. Sub-contractors have partially covered forty moro miles beyond. The work extends to what ia callett Fremont's Butte , from which poinUhe road is down grade to Denver. The road is a perfectly straight line for forty miles east of Fremont's Butto. President Wilson , of the Col orado Cattle Growers' association , in Iii3niimi.il address , make1 ! mention ot this line in the following words : "Tho Burlington and Missouri rail road is nt last coming towards ns through the heart of one of the great ranges of Colorado , and their men are now at work all the way from Denver to the Nebraska stito line. Wo will i ivo it a hearty welcome , na it gives us another direct line for our beef shipments straight through to Chi cago. "I would call , the attention of the various contractors along their line to the danger to which wo nre exposed [ rom the putting out of prairie fires caused by their camp fires , and urge them to use all possible caution to prevent them. The firca once started will run for miles nnd miles , dcstoy- ing the winter feed of our best ranges. STATS JOTTINGS. Beatrice is agititing a cheese factory.
