CHICAGO now knows how it is horsolf.
She is having a fight with the Chicago &
Eranston railway and her city council
which reminds otio very much of Omaha
bolt railway tactics. There was $100,000
put fet the Chicago bolt line , but the
mayor vetoed the ordinance and put a
atop to the job.
KENTUCKY judges do not hold enviable
positions BO long as Tom' Buford is at lib

from which ho escaped , and it is now re
ported that ho is out gunning for Judge
fry or. Wo advise the judges of Ken
tucky to increase their lifo insurance.
DOWN in Yazoo the compliments of the
season were passed between a number of
colored men and white gentlemen on
Christmas. It is the first time in the
history of Mississippi that the colored
man's revolver weni off before the white
man's shot gun. The city council of
Yazoo waa called as a coroner's jury , and
1 they came to the conclusion that this lit
tle quarrel , in which several gentlemen
were killed , was duo to a mere difibronco
of opinion.

gets to mention any thing about the bunko
game , to which ho was introduced in Now

that ho was a loser at poker , as ho was at
bunko , and hence ho intentionally omita
mention of those games.
SJUAI.I , it bo peace or war ? That ia the
question which ngitatos railroad men in
thia part of the country , aa well oa the

pool will take the place of the Iowa pool ,
or whether wo shall have two pools , and

his company was negot fating for the solo

nil' KAllOll QUKSTION ,
Tha question is now being raised in
the owl whether this country shall have
protection against imported labor aa well
as against imported wares and commodi
ties. Some months ago when a largo
number of Italians and Itusaian Jews on-
tcrcd into active competition in Now
York , a revolt was raised among the
freight handlers and dock hands in that
city against this cheap imported labor.
For weeks there were riots nearly every
day in the streets of Now York , but
finally the excitement subsided , and the
imported labor became Americanized
enough to demand higher pay than they
at first received. Matters wore then
equalized. And now wo learn that simi
lar labor troubles have arisen in the
Connnllivillo coke region of Pennsylva
nia. War has boon declared by the min
ors and laboring mon of that section
against the Hungarians and Slavonians ,
and * the cry has gone forth that "they
must go. " A manifesto has boon issued
which charges these people with crowd
ing out the minors and laborers who are
established , and good citizens , from
employment and homos. It ia charged
that they are extremely .filthy in their
habits , and live on what the American
people cannot cat. Their habits grow
worse the longer they stay , until they
can no longer bo endured. Their morals
are said to bo the lowest of any Cauca
sian race , and their intelligence
lower than that Ipt the Chinese. Only
about five per cent can read and write ,
and they will not become naturalized citizens <
izons , but with all the cash they can save
they finally return to their own country ,
"Thoso people , " says the manifesto ,
"aro degrading American laboraro an in
jury to our commerce , and a blot on the
commonwealth not to bo endured ,
American labor as well as America ) :
manufactures must bo protected. " Here
wo have substantially the same complain !
against white immigrants from nouthorn
Europe thathas bcon made by Denis Kearney
noy and his followers against the Chinese
on the I'acific coast. And thia brings us U
the question , where ia the line to be
drawn ? If any ono class of poo-
pip vrho como to this conntry to bettor
their condition can underbid the labor of
another clans by reason of being more
frugal , in food and dross , or by being ob-
stonriourand able to eave by living in
wretched squalor , and subsisting upon
what others would throw to the dogs , are
they to bo driven back ] Can wo estab
lish by any law or by any system of police
regulation what mon shall wear , oat and
drink , and how they shall furnish their
homos ? This is not now a problem as to
the Chinese alone , but with nearly all
foreigners. There are Irishmen who
como to this country willing to hvo upon
food that the American laborer rejects
and willing to live in houses in which
Americans would not stable'thoir cattle.
There are Germans , Scandinavians ,
Bohemians , Polandors , and people of all
races and all climes crowding into our
abor market , against whom the same
complaint might bo mado. It is not the
ijuostion of morals , nor of education , nor
jf naturalization , that is at the bottom of
.ho outcry against cheap imported labor.
) onnis Kearney and his followers would
lot insist that the Chinese must go on ac
count of their ignorance or their low
morals , or their refusal to vote at oleo-
iions , if it were not for the fact that the
Jhiuaman enters the labor market at a
jroator advantage over the white man ,
aocauao ho can subsist on less costly food ,
dross in cheaper clothing , and work more
lioura than the white man for the same
money. It is the conflict between cheap
and high labor , and not between high
and low morals , or between education
and ignorance. To protect American
labor and to keep up high wages it is no
longer aufllciont to exclude foreign man
ufactures by a high protective tariff , because -
cause a high protective tariff bogota man-
ufaeturing monopolies and over
production , which in turn forces a
suspension of manufacturing and keeps
thousands of workmen unemployed dur
ing certain seasons. High wages for six
months and no work for the balance of
the * year is worse than steady employment -
mont at lo r wages all the year round.
To maintain wages at uniformly fair rates
there should bo n * obstruction to com
merce by extravagant tariffs. At present
our factories are over-stimulated , and
when they produce more than they sell
in America , they must close their doors
until their products aro' consumed.
Meantime the unemployed laborer , the
farmer and other consumers , are paying
two prices for everything they wear and
for the materials out of which their
houses are built.
Tin ; make-up of the ways and moans
committee , of which Morrison in the
chairman , cannot fail to force tariff re
form as an issue before the present con-
gross. Six of the aovon democratic
members are pronounced in favor of
material reductions of the present tariff ,
and Mr. Hewitt , of Now York , favors a
moderate reduction on certain lines of
dutiable goods. The minority , consist
ing of flvo republicans , namely , Kelly ,
of Pennsylvania ; Kasuon , of Iowa ; Mo-
Kinloy , of Ohio ; Hiecock , of New
York , and Russell , of Massachusetts ,
are pronounced , protectionists. Messrs.
Molvinloy , Ilussoll and' Hiscock are in
full sympathy with Judge Kelly on all
questions relating to the protective tar
iff , and will follow lib leadership in op
posing the efforts which Mr. Morrison
and his associates on the democratic
committed will undoubtedly make to re
duce the existing rate of duty , Kossr.n
claims to bo a protectionist , but would
favor further reductions of duty on a
number of commodities included in the
dutiable list. With the committee -
too composed of elements BO
radically at variance , it ia oafo to pro-
diet that the conflict will bo fierce and
furious from the very outset. The evident >
dent purpose of the speaker in choosing
pronounced protectionists from among
the republicans in forming this com
mittee ia to commit the rcpubli
can part from the very start
against tariff reform. If the repub
licans are stupid enough to fall into thia
trap , and adopt Judge Kelly's inflexible
high tariff as a party measure they will
give the democrats the inside track in the
coming prcaidontial raco. * While it is true
that a great majority of the republican
party favor protection because that policy
has boon pursued by that party for more
than twenty years , a very respectable
portion of the party are outspoken in
favor of tariff reform , thorough tariff
revision and reduction of import 'duties.
Tliis class of republicans are liable to
stay at homo or vote with the democrats ,
if the iasuo between tariff reform and
high protection is forced.
TAUIt'F RKFOKM.
While many of the old hacks and
bourbons , who were educated in the pro
tectionist school of politics from the
cradle up , seek to array the republican
nnrty against tariff reform there ia a silent
revolution going on among the republican
masses. This sentiment is not confined
to the pnxirio states of the west , but ia
vapidly spreading among all clasaos of
people in the manufacturing districts of
Ohio and Pennsylvania. Ex-Congress
man John B. Rico , who represented
Governor Poster's district in the
lost congress , has recently given
utterance to the views that are
taking root in northern Ohio in faror of
a reduction of taxes by a revision of the
tariff , according to Mr. Rico. The fol
lowing extracts from a letter to the Now
York Jfcrald show what Mr. Rico thinks
of the situation. To the question asked
by the correspondent , whether the de
mand will bo general in 1884 for a
change in the tariff , Mr. Rico said :
( > I have no doubt of it. The people
have no other issue , whatever the poli
ticians may bo fixing up for agitation.
It is bound to come to the front next
year and bo agitated as it was in the
Whipj times. Then protection wan ag
gressive. ' Now it is defensive ] , and with
the demand for the reform of the tariff
it will have hard work to hold its high
points. Republicans must recognize not
only the demand but the necessity for a
reform of the tariff. The republicans
have heretofore courted this issue , but it
is no longer safe for any party. It should
bo adjusted , 'so as to preclude tinkering
in the interest of parts of the country
against the whole. "
"What would you suggest as the way
to got at this reform ? "
"What is necessary first is sincerity ,
and then to got the tariff adjusted on a
low and equitable basis. I found no
principles of justice in congress entering
into the acts on this important matter.
Business mon could adjust it , but the
lawyers and _ politicians in congress vote
to _ ouit their selfish advancement with
their constituents without concern for
nero than their own district or their in-
: orost in the vote of that district.
With a tariff patched up for the
many localities everything is too high ,
and the tariff is a burden to the thou
sands and a benefit to only a fow. Take
such a high-minded man as Senator
Bayard ; ho would reduce the tariff on
other things , but it must bo kept up on
natchos and powder manufactured in
Delaware. No less a ntatesman than
Randolph Tucker insisted on reduction
generally , but high protection for uunmo
gathered by the negroes in the wilds of
u's district , a constituency that does
ittlo olao than hunt and voto. The
amo is certainly rlno for doing some
thing. I hardly think party lines will
yet bo drawn on it. The republicans
: annot ask the people to pay more for
their cotton goods , woolens and grocer
ies than they are worth , and they are not
ready to trust the democrats with any
thing loss specific than a plain open
pledge. The tariff should bo taken off of
nich n commodity as nucar at once. It ia
loading to fraud. People are buying
jlucoso for sugar and paying for it the
price of sugar. The cost is one-third
that of cano sugar. All candies are made
of it , and it is the common article sold
for sugar. It kills boos and may in-
iuro man. The stronghold of repub
licans in Ohio is the western reserve ,
and hero the farmers and others are agi-
tatud on it. Their crops aro'failures this
year. The hard times from the poor crops
will bo felt till after next November.
They are concerned at finding prices
high when they have nothing to sell , and
I think thia ia the situation throughout
the entire west. I heard them speak of
it as an outrage that they should bo so
hard up and the government collecting
from § 50,000,000 to 8100,000,000 per
year moro than it needs by moans of the
extra price added to nearly everything
in the market , and especially to the nec
essaries of lifo "
KX.GOVKKNOH RALVII P. LOWK , who
died at Washington Saturday waa ono of
the Iowa pioneers who rose to eminence
by his sterling qualities as a citizen and
public man. Ho was born in Mont
gomery , 0. , about 1803 , and spent hia
early lifo in Ohio. Ho removed to Mus-
catino , Ia. , in 1839 , and engaged in tha
practice of the law. In 1849 ho removed
to Kookuk , and in 1853 was elected judge
of the first.Iowa judicial circuit , In
1857 , while serving hia second term aa
judge , ho waa elected governor of Town
by Iho republicans by a largo majority.
Ho remained governor until 18GO , when
ho was elected to the suproiuo bench of
the ntato , where ho served until 180(5 ( , do.
clining a ronpmination on account of
mining interests in Nevada. Ho after-
warda resumed the practice of the law ,
and removed to the national capital
where ho has resided over since 1875 ,
THE agony is over. Carlisle has ap
pointed his committees , and the corres
pondents who have boon doing guess
work for the past two weeks have adjourned -
journed together with congress until
aftur the holidays.
SEVKUAI. members of the Now York
legislature , who have boon tendered
passes by the railroads , have returned
these complimentary bribes and' pub
lished the "tender" with the aooniful refusal -
fusal , The New York Port suggests that
the legislature should require the publi
cation the pass list every year after
adjournment , A comparison of votes
with the frco rides would probably throw
a flood of light on the winter's work. It
strikes us that a comparison of the legis
lative tocord with the dead-head list a
year after the legislature has adjourned
would bo still moro suggestive. Hero in
Nebraska many of the "honest" members
make no use of their passes until after
the legislature has closed its session.
THKIXR are those who still look forward
to the candidacy of General Grant aa
among the probabilities of the coming
presidential campaign. Colonel McOluro ,
of the Philadelphia Times , stakes hia
reputation as a political weather prophet
by the following assertion :
It is Grant's ambition to bo recalled to
the presidency. Ho has defeat to atone ,
and I shall bo greatly surprised if he docs
not become the foremost republican can-
dilate for 1884 within the next throe
months. Ho could not have made him
self a formidable aspirant , but southern
sectional folly can do for Grant in a day
moro than all his friends could hope to
achieve in a lifetime. The ono obstacle
to Grant entering the race ia the proba
ble persistence of Arthur as a candidate
in the present reasonable certainly of an
election ; but with Arthur out of the way
Grant would bo the foremost candidate
before another moon shall have waxed
and waned.

"Tho City of Success , " and other
poems , by Henry Abbey , published by
D. Appleton & Co. , Now York , price
81.25 , ia an attractive volume. This
collection of Mr. Abbey's poems will
repay a careful reading. Ho is an American -
ican author , and ono who is destined to
take a high place in the literary world.
His verso is smooth and full of poetic
sentiment , charmingly expressed. Ho
sings of noble deeds and chivalrous men ,
acts of daring and bravery , and of mon
who have inspired the world. His chief
object seems to bo to sot forth the praises
of manliness and nobility of character in

founded for the most part on historic
incidents , Refined taste and genuine
sympathy with all that is beautiful and
noble characterize Mr. Abbey's produc
tions.

How Old Mny n Mnn Iilvo ?
Domoroat'a Monthly.
In n Bcssarabian province lives ono
Savtchuk , who at last accounts was 130
years olo. Ho is what is called a little
Russian by birth. His oldest son is 87
years old , and is far moro decrepit thaw
the father. The ono family lias multi
plied into CO families. The ago of this
Russian is , of course , not as well authen
ticated as that of old Parr , the English
man. 'It has boon noted that reported
cases of extreme old ago always occur in
the ranks of the very poor , whoso date of
birth can rarely bo verified , while kings
nobles and members of the noted
families whoso records are kept , in
no ago or country have over lived
100 years. Generalizing from this fact , a
distinguished English writer , Mr. Lowes ,
gives it as his judgment ihat it ia very
doubtful if any human being can claim
the distinction of being a centenarian.
Yet from the analogy of the animal races ,
every child that is well born should live
a century. The rule seems to bo that
animals live five times the length of their
adolescence , that is , they ought to live
five times longer than the period it takes
to attain their full growth. There is no
question but what the whole human race
does not enjoy the health and vigorwhich
it is possible to attain. There is some
defect in the constitution of even the
strongest of our race. In the golden ago
of humanity yet to como , every child
will be well born. Its life and habits
will conform to the scientific laws
controlling our existence on thia earth ,
and then man's environment will help
him to achieve the highest possible phys
ical vitality. To-day the great bulk of
of the human race are born with weak
strains in their blood. Thev eat im
proper food , use hurtful stimulants as
drink. They are poisoned by malarias
subject to contagions duo to their sur
roundings. The two great objects of the
best men and women in this life should
bo first to improve the race itself , mor
ally and physically , and secondly , to
maka this earth on which , man lives a ht
abode for the superior people who will
then occupy it.

The increase in real estate values
in Omaha during the past 6 months
has been most reinsirkable. and the
demand still continues unabated. In
view of ! these facts and the certain
ty that this is to be OIK os the prin
cipal cities of. the West , prudent
persons will realize that the jireseni
is the time for real estate invest
ments.
Ten Per Cent
In comparison with other cities ,
Omaha suburban property is held al
very low figures , which an other year
of prosperity will materially en
hance , and probably place it , out of
the reach of people of small means.
During the past season various
tracts have been sub-divided into
acre property. Of these
HIMEBAUGH'S ADDITION
is unexcelled in location and price.
It is situated on a high elevation ,
commanding an extensive view !
sloping gently to the east towards
the city. The north line of the tract
is the Leavenworth street extension ,
and is , by actual measurement , the
the same distance from the post-
office as the Water Work ? rpservoir
or the south west corner of the poor
farm.
$200 to $250
per acre is the price asked for this
property on time payments of ten
per cent cash and ? 10 per month.
