Some * Oonserrntlvo Adrico.
Mr. Arthur , chief of llio Brotherhood
of Locomotive Engineers , has recently
presented somn views upon the labor
question which must meet with the hearty
approval of all who wish well to work
ingmen in their struggle to improve their
condition. In the first place Mr. Arthur
took occasion to warn workingmen
azainst the false notion that tlio chief end
of labor organizations vrns to dictate
terms to tlioit employers. lie boldly assert
ed as a worktngman , and head of a great
labor organization , that it is as wrong
for them to demand that workingmen
who do not belong to their organization
shall not ba employed as it Is for employ *
crs to rcfuso work to a man simply be
cause he belongs to a labor union. Tlio
right of ono man to begin work on such
conditions as suit him is as much beyond
dispute as is the right of another man to
quit work because tlin terms do not suit
These arc the same views which Mr.
Powdcrly nnd other wise nnd far-seeing
lenders of labor have expressed. It
is unforlunato that they have
often failed to enforce their mod-
crate and just sentiments upon
the organizations of which thov
arc the admitted heads. It is not to thn
interests of workingmen to attempt to
oppress their employers an d their as
sociates. The success of orga nizcd labor
will not come through force. It will bo
attained by convincing workingmen and
employers alike of the justice of their do-
maiuLs. The demand' ) must como from
tlio free deliberation and the full con
sent of the masses and not from tlio arbi
trary will or excited impulse of a few hot
headed agitators. An irresponsible des
potism which attempts to rule by
fear can never take deep root
among the free political institutions of
America. The spirit of liberty which
this country fosters cannot thrive amid
arbitrary coercive practices , either on
the part of the government or the gov
erned. This -is what the great labor or
ganization , the Knights of Labor , rccog-
ni/.os as ono of its cardinal principles
wli'ch ' cannot be too perfectly committed
to heart by American workingmen.
TlibMidlothian Manifesto.
The appeal made to the electors of
Midlothian by Mr. Gladstone indicates
that the premier fools strong enough in
his position before the country to forego
a personal appearance on the platform
in Edinburgh to conciliate his Scotcli
constituents. His manifesto was accord
ingly written and given to tlio public
through the press. Mr. Gladstone gives
it to bo understood very plainly that his
homo rule bill in its present form is lilce-
ly to bo extensively magnified before it is
put on its final passage , and that provided
its vital principle is sustained
ho is quite willing that the details of its
application should bo settled by parlia
ment. This leaves the doors open for the
return of some nf the socedors who have
their defection upon certain clauses of
the measure. The premier probably lias
in mind the reform bill of 1807 which was
brought into oxistoneo in much the same
way as the homo rule bill of 1880. Lib
erals under Mr. Gladstone established
the principle that an enlargement of the
franchise was necessary , and though
tltoy were defeated and resigned on the
form of the bill which they pre
sented it was owing to liberal
work and the education which liberals
had given the country in agitating the
measure that Disraeli was forced to take
up the great questions and pass a bill em
bodying its main features in a succeeding
parliament. Mr. Gladstone insists that
the neeesslsity for homo rule for Ireland
shall bo admitted. Ho demands that the
liberal party shall commit itself to work
and vote for self-government on the part
of the Irish people , This principle ad
mitted , ho will make such concessions as
may bo needed to pass the measure , pro
vided always that they do not conflict
with the principle which it was formulat
ed to establish.
Tlio Fight Has Begun.
The campaign in Nebraska is about to
open. The never-failing sign of the irre
pressible conflict is the revival by the
Lincoln paper , that subsists upon the pro
ceeds of fraud on plundered taxpayers
and monopoly pap , of the exploded and
moss-grown story that Jay Gould once
upon a time hushed the Omaha BEE with
tv thousand dollars. No matter how often
this impudent falsehood has been buried ,
it is always sure to bo rcsurrectod at the
outset of every campaign. Nobody knows
the true history of this transaction
bettor than the rogues and jobbers
on the Lincoln Journal. But that
docs not matter to them. They
know what Is notorious , that the
BKE never for ono smglo Issue has been
hushed by Jay Gould or any of his min
ions , and If Jay Gould really did pay.
hush money to the BEB.it was the first
time in the life of the Wall street finan
cier that ho put his money wliero it did
him no good. It Is as wall known to
that venal mercenary , Charles H. Gore ,
whoso whole career in Nebraska has
boon that of a common prostitute to
everybody who had money to purchase
his favor , that the thousand dollars
which was collected nine years ago by
the Omaha BEB from the Union Pacific
was for a broach of contract involving
over five thousand dollars of job work
which had boon tukon away from us after
part of the work was done , because the
BEK refused to dance to the music of the
Union Pacific in the effort to defeat .a
local railroad project which Omaha busi
ness men were trying to inaugurate.
Tlio papers that did prostitute themselves
and sold the interests of Omaha and Ne
braska for a moss of railroad pottage
were given the job work for which the
BEE had tlio contract and they , with just
fetich pliant tools as Charles II. Gore , had
the impudence thereafter to besmirch
Hosowator because ho enforced his just
claims for broach of contract. Fortu
nately no such dispute can occur again
to furnish the brazen brood of railroad
editors material for assailing our intcg-
rity. Tito BEB wont out of the job print
ing business four years ago , and has left
tlio Held clear for the owners of
Lincoln and Omaha job olliccs
with railroad newspaper appendages to
till their coflbrs with its profits. Their
failure to cope with the BEE iu its chosen
Held as a newspaper is duo to the utter
ack of confidence which the people have
in mercenary editors like Mr. Gore , who
can thrive only through collusion w > th
publio plunderers and corporate mono
poly ,
Since this gttug buvo seen fit to open
this campaign , wo sorro them divine no-
tlco that it will be waged on our
henceforward with all the vigor nt our
command. In the coming fight wo will
ask no quarter. Wo are ready to measure
swords with the corrupt confederates ,
nnd will teach them and their backers ,
bcforo the fight is over , that the day' ' is
past whnn the people of Nebraska will
submit to misrule and higliway robbery

public thiovcs.
To Increase Frontier Protection.
Both the house nnd the senate com
mittees on military affairs have favorably
reported the bills for the Improvement
of Nebraska's two frontier posts , Forts
Hobiuson nnd Niobrara. There should
bo no aucslion of tiio pass ago of the bill
making the necessary appropriations ,
especially in the case of the former.men
tioned post , which lias been raised into
commanding importance by the exten
sion of tlio railroad to ( ho very heart of
the reservation. On this account , next
to Fort Omaha , It becomes the cheapest
post to maintain and supply in the
department of the Platte nnd the
most available in case of calls for troops
which can bo loaded on trains in front
of their quartern while in every other
instance a journey of from live to two
hundred miles to thu uiilroad Is needed.
Those considerations with the added ono
that Fort llohlnson holds the key to the
position at Pine llidgo agency guarding
as it docs the White Hivcr valley with its
thousands of settlers , makes it of the
highest importance that'll should receive
immediate attention. Nothing has boon
expended on it for ten years and tlio post
.originally built of logs lias fallen
into a decay which makes it scarcely
habitable. The appropriation which the
congressional committee asks for will
bo expended in rebuilding the
post in a permanent and substantial
manner , and enlarging the capacity to
that of a ten company garrison. North
western Nebraska , including that won
derful and thriving little city of nine
months growth and 2OCO population ,
whoso other name is Chadron , is vitally
and intensely interested in the outcome.
FortNiobrara , which is also mentioned
in the bill , guards the right llauk of the
Sioux reserve and while on this account
scarcely as important a position as Fort
llobinson , would afford protection if
needed to the section lying south-oast of
the reservation. Its importance has
already boon substantially recognized by
generous appropriations which have
made it the best built post in Nebraska.
The additional sum asked is to complete
the improvements made and fix the garrison
risen with all the accommodations needed
for the muintonanco of a regiment.
Nebraska and especially tiio frontier
portion of the state is entitled
to full protection on its exposed
line. As long as 28,000 Sioux
menace our northern border , at
least two regiments should bo stationed
to guard the exposed lino. The extension
of the Elkhorn Valley road into Wyom
ing will take away the hist excuse for the
retention of Fort Laramic , which will
lie fifty miles south of rail connections.
A sound military policy would seem to
dictate that the troops there stationed
should bo transferred to the Nebraska
PitETTr positive evidence has been secured -

Ijlfo Among the Ncz Forces.
Sim Francisco Examiner : The Indians
of this coast have nearly all discarded
their peculiar costume , and wear old and
now civilized dress in a decidedly Indian
fashion. Among the Nez Purees is seldom
seen an entire Indian costume. Some
times , however , ono is forcibly reminded
of the parody :
Jo ! the poor Indlan.whoso untutored mind ,
Wears all his clothes In trout and none
These Indians live in tents made of
poles and covered with cloth or bull'ulo
robes. The tents are left open at the
top , and. as the lire is built in the
center , tlio gmoko naturally goes out at
the top. At night each individual wraps
his blanket around him and lies down
on the bare ground , without any other
covering , The bucks arc fond of
gambling and understand the value of a
bob-tailed Hush. They know how to
play u lonu hand , too , and if there is ever
a scrapping match over the pot , there is
u good Indian for breakfast already
A bird's-oyo view of their encampment
reveals sonio curious phases , In the
largest tent every night witnesses a high
jinks which is made hideous by Uiu dis
cordant notes of several tom-toms , a
peculiar llute witli u bourse whistle , ao-
companied by the women , who crone
through their teeth. The dances and
athletic exorcises are thu same as the
POW-WOW and sun dance of the Sioux.
Not the least interesting and nioturusquo
are the children and tlo" * , which abound
in great numbers. Tfju little infant is
firmly tied to a bourd with a fatraii , which
tlio mother puts across her forehead
when who is walking about. A litto |
buckskin string tacked on the corner
with a knot for each-month tolls bow old
the liUIo'fcllow is , and the pr.c5.onco of
houtls and n strip of oilcloth for sanitary
purposes reveals' the t ux : It is amusing
to walch the older children play house
with rag dolls and dogs stmstittitod foi
horses. In their childish way tboy mimic
the life of their elders , and they nra as
quaint and ugly as tlioy are mirthless ,
The dogs contribute their share to the
general fun and patiently submit to be
ing ridden and made to carry nil sorts ol
bundles. The children hnvo no com <
punction about rnldinc ono another's
play-houses , and many laughable things
occur during llio mclco which follows.
The children receive but little attention
from their parents and are covered with
vermin. They are all bow-logged be
cause they nra not taken from tlio board
until they can walk , and a great portion
of that time their hands and foot are
pinioned. They nro remarkably quiet ,
seldom if over crying. Less than half of
them reach maturity.
The Story of Dnti Smart. Emhozzler.
Chicago Herald : " It is not gcnor
ally known. " Bald a stock yards
man , "that Dan Smart , who has just
boon overhauled in Montreal for em
bezzling $50,000 from Fowler Bros. ,
was ouco a resident of tills city nnd work-
iiig for $1 a day. 1 remember him well.
Ho was a common laborer in tlio Fair
banks refinery , but was willing and apt ,
and finally secured an advance of ills
wages to $1.50 a day , and afterward to
$2.W ) . Ono day ho surprised his foreman
by demanding n still further increase of
his pay.
" 'Why , Iaii't , < aid the foreman , 'you're
already getting half a dollar a day moro
than any laborer hero. You ought to bo
satisfied with that. '
" 'You think hut I don't '
may so , , was
Dun's pert rejoinder ; 'my opinion is that
I'm not gutting anything like what my
services nro worth.1
" 'And perhaps you'll bo good enough
to toll mo just whatvou do consider your
self worth , ' said the foreman sarcas
tically. „
" ' \\ell , ' was the reply , in a nonchal
ant tone , 'I reckon I could bo satisfied
with three thousand a year for awhilo. '
' 5 You could hnvo knocked that foreman
down with a feather , " resumed the stock
yards man. after lie had shifted a quid to
the other side of His mouth. "Ho looked
at Dan with a kind of vacant stare , and
ftnally blurted outs
"Why , man , you must bo sheer daft ,
crazy , Dan. '
" 'Not much , ' replied that worthy , as ho
shut his eye and threw his head in tlio
air ; 'you can bet that I know what I am
talking about. My terms to this house
are three thousand a year , commencing
to-morrow morning. If that don't suit I
quit to-night. '
"To make a long story short , Dan quit
the same night. Ho hied himself as soon
as possible to Ktumis City , called on the
1'owlor Brothers , ami in two hours had
been etignged ami put to work on a salary
of $3,000 a year.
"Tho secret of it ? Certainly. Dan
was smart in disposition as well as in
name , thotigh he didn't take any pains to
show it. Ho was , moreover , particularly
observing , nnd he turned this faculty to
good use. His labors took him into
every corner of the works , and nothing
escaped his eagle eye. He had a good
memory , but , as the sequel proved ; he
didn't trust to it entirely , for there was a
little memorandum book in the hip
pockets of his pantaloons into which as
many ns a dozen points a day wont down
whencuer Dan could got into a dark
corner. In this way ho gradually got
the hang of things until he know as much
about the business and the processes in
the factory as any of the high-priced em
ployes , while his natural brightness en
abled him to think of ninny improve
ments which might be mado. It was this
knowledge which secured him a place
with the Fowlers , who advanced him to
$4,000 at the end of the first year , and
finally sent him to manage their New
York branch at $5,000. He was getting ,
I believe , six or seven thousand a year
and a share in the profits when ho bt-gau
to dip his fingers into the firm's money.
This is how Dan Smart degenerated from
a dollar a day laborer in Chicago to bo a
member of the American colony in Mon
treal. "
