The Sttnilny In OmnliK. The different clergymen of this city have been discussing thoroughly for some time past the observance of Sunday In Omaha. There ia n feeling , not confined to the cloth alone , that quite apart from any religious grounds , Sunday might bo made a more useful day to Omaha. The movement to effect this has the sympathy and support of iMahous O'Connor and Worthliigton , of Kabul licnson and the llcv. Mr. Coucland , together with the ministers of nil the other churches. It is an evidence of pro gress that there is no effort to compel men to spend the day in any particular fashion , but simply to make it possible for them to spend it ns they plcaso. The aim of the move ment , as wo understand It , is to create a sentiment among employers against Sun day work. On this basis It is duo to the working mon and clerks of this city that the movement should have a hearty sup port. Competition nowa'days makes it impossible for one man to stand out tigiiinst a demand for his time on the ono day which is universally sot apart among civilized nations as a day of rest. If the wage workers are to have time to improve themselves and bring up their children properly they must have at least ono day out of the week for this purpose , when the huad of the house can learn the ways of iho house for which he works so hard during the other six. Those wore very narrow views of Sabbath observ ance which compelled attendance at church , austere deportment and the ban ishing ot all moans of recreation and pleasure on Sundays. With the old blue laws few have any sympathy. But physiology teaches us that .mental and physical rest are necessary , and experience has proved that seven days' work without recreation accomplished less in the end tha n .six with an intervening day for a change of mental and physical conditions. It is us a public measure nlono that the BEE urges upon employers and laborers to give their aid to thlc movement. There is no attempt to suggest how any man may best improve the day. Our readers have probably as many different views on that question as the clergymen who form the association for promoting rest from work on Sunday. All , how ever , can agree on the advantage of a day when home and nature , wife nnd children can be enjoyed and tiic mind rested from the clatter and worry of the daily round of toil. Some must work , but the number should bo us small as it can possibly bo made. Tlie "AtlnniR" Seizure. There is a great deal of fuss being made over the seizure of the fishing smack , "D. J. Adams , " of Boston , by the Canadian authorities. Several congress men have fired themselves up to white heat in denouncing the seizure as a ' British outrage. " and a violation of international comity under the fisheries dispute. The fact scorns to bo that the question of the fishery treaty was.not in volved at all. The vessel came into harbor with her stern con cealed by canvass , covering her name ana port and destroying her identity. This Was in , violation of all shipping rules' , and rendered , "her liable to seizure .and inypstigution .by the _ au- thoritics of the port. ' The issue , whether she had boon seining in Canadian wat ers , purchasing bait or violating any of the provisions of the treaty of 1818 , does not scorn to have been raised. But oven if the interpretation of the treaty of 1818 was in question , the United States has no reason to find fault. The quarrel is ono of her own seeking. Wo ' allowed our fisheries treaty , wh'ich was in every way most favorable to this country , to expire a year ago and tiara since declined to provide any other ar rangement to govern the fishery relations between the two countries. The repre sentatives of Now England havu insisted on imposing a heavy duty on fish cauirht by Canadians and landed on our shores , nnd the whole difficulty resolves itself into the issue \Yhcthortho products of the frco ocean shall bo free or whether the high protection mania shall bo extended to protect codfish and mackerel to the detriment of our friendly neighbors. All the talk about offended national dig nity and strained international relations is slioor nonsonso. The United States is not prepared to go to war over a few fishing smacks which Canada is not in clined to grant any more privileges titan she is compelled to under an absolute treaty whose stringent provisions have been revived through our own hoggish- ness. Supporting an Honest Oflicial. Secretary Lamar warrants a denial of nil statements that ho has asked for Com missioner Sparks' resignation , Ho sizes up the howl against the commissioner as the wail of disappointed land sharks , nnd says that the public domain will coiitinuo to bo protected and that all efforts to place a pliant tool of the job- bera in the land olllco will fail. With all of which the west has no fault to find. Actual settlement is what this boction of the country ncods , The speculators and non-resident pro-cinptton buyers are not wanted. The men who take up government land to improve it by break ing nnd cultivating the soil , erecting homes and barns and fences , nnd build ing up little communities with their churches aud schools , urotho kind of land seekers which Nebraska Is Becking , and against whom none of Mr. Sparks' rigid regulations are directed. There is no howl against the land commissioner from this class of sottlors. On the contrary the BUR has rccoivod scores of letters from actual settlers living on their claims commending warmly its support of Mr. Sparks' fearless fight to preserve the public domain. Mr Sparks Is honest and active , some times a little hasty in his rulings , but al ways with an eye single to the interests of the government. His decision indefi nitely suspending the is uo of patents and practically overturning the com muted homosluad law , wore very proper ly over-ruled by Mr. Lamar.as too swoop ing in their application. But both Mr , Cleveland and the secretary of the inter. tot recognize that under Mr. Sparks' ' ad ministration there will bo an end to scandals in tha land olllce , The corpora tion lobby which lias fpr yearn exercised its baneful Influence over the railroad land grant .section ] has been put t flight. The cattloburona have boon compelled to rdmovo their fences from agricultural hinds on the public domain. , Suits have l > con entered against the foreign syndicates who have been so busy in seizins upon thousands of acres of valuable lands through fraudu lent entries and perjured testimony of hireling prc-omptors. Public attention haa been called to the outrageous frauds by which the government's reserve for the poor nnd landless has been frittered nwny in enriching the wealthy. These nro some of the re sults of Mr. Snark's administration uptotho present time. Wo repeat that the west has reason to thank the commis sioner for them. They arc all In the Inter est of a substantial upbuilding nnd devel opment of the west by a I'csident popula tion. This Is what we need , what wo desire - sire und what wo all ought to support. Mr. Sparks will not go. but if signs are to bo believed , the loose laws , which make such frauds as ho has exposed and Is now fighting , will disappear from the statute books before the commissioner takes down his overcoat and turns the Key of the land olllco over to his successor. TIIK small-pox has made its rc-appcnr- unco in the vicinity of Montreal , and it will continue there so long as the opposi tion to vaccination is maintained by the superstitious French Canadians. A ST. PAUL clergyman has confessed that ho proposes to change his location so that ho can use his old sermons over again. It is not oft < > n that a clergyman makes such a frank confession. Mil. GALLOWAY tells Ufa Chicago re porters that the union depot will be built this year and that all trains will win in and out of it That follows as a matter of course. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ OMAHA has no professional bii o ball club this season , but she continues to ride the wave of prosperity all the same. TIIK tornado business is being over done' The country prefers them rare. Other TmiidB Thau Ours. As the day for the decisive vote , upon the homo rule approaches It becomes moro and more difliotilt to forecast the final fate of the measure. The element , of religious warfare introduced by Pro testant Ulster is doing moro just now to imperil the success of the passage of the homo rule bill than any other hostile force. The coalition claim a majority sufficient to defeat the measure and it looks as if there wore only n barn possi bility of its passage in its original shape as first introduced. It is equally dit- licult to point out the modifica tions that will save it at the present time. Two of the most promi neut and promising may , however , bo mentioned : the admission of Irish mem- bora to scats at Westminster , and the concession of local independence to Ul ster. The first micht satisfy and thereby secure the indispensable support of Chamberlain and the radicals ; the second would bo a tub thrown to the Protestant whale , and spike the heaviest gun of tiio formidable combination represented by Hartington and Salisbury. Mr. Glad stone , wo think , will yield the first rather than lose everything ; but will refuse the second , oven though refusal in volves total loss. To admit * the Irish members would , not seriously interfere with the purpose of bis'policc ' , but grant ing local independence to Ulster would virtually destroy it. 'An Irish parliament , the head and front of the homo rule for which he is fighting , would bo little bet ter than a farce with the richest nnd most prosperous portion of Ireland under a separate und presumably antagonistic ju risdiction. Bad as thu present system is , such a substitute would bo vastly worse for all concerned. That Mr. Gladstone will so view it , and net according ly , wo cannot doubt. Rather than make home rule ac once ridiculous aud dangerous , ho will risk defeat , dissolve parliament and appeal to the people. Whether in that event the people would sustain him , aud with him an Irish in dependence which means something , or throw him and such independence over board together none can guess. Meanwhile - while wo may bo sure that the strongest and noblest friend Ireland has over had will do his best for her , utterly regard less of personal pride or preference and wo shall not now have long to wait before - fore knowing what that bust is , - \ Greece is still held in check by the blockade of her ports , enforced by the al lied fleet of the powers , and there arc signs tluit the kingdom will bo brought to its souses without the bloody coercion of war. Th-j warlike ministry has re signed and a new government formed on a peace basis. The old ministry , before resigning , font a circular note to the var ious embassies protesting that Greece had never contemplated hastily to the powers and that the government o onsidorcd the blockade entirely justifiable. It is bo- llovud that tbo new ministry wul order disarmament and the withdrawal of the troops from thoTurkish frontier and that upon such guarantees of peace being fur nished , the powers will compel Turkey to surrender a portion of the territory ceded to Grceco by the Berlin treaty. \ The first Cortes , or Spanish parlia ment under the regency , mot this week nl Madrid. The royal message of Queen Christina which was read by Premier Sa- gasta , dwelt largely on the necessity ol financial uud commercial reforms and fallowed the expediency of postponing po litical and constitutional questions till the long-neglected material interests of the country are attended to. Sagasta an nounced that all treaties of commerce will bo renewed , A sensation was caused by a passage in the message announcing that the house will bo asked to approve of a convention giving England the "most favored nation" treatment in Spanish markets in exchange for a re duction in British duties on Spanish wines. It is said that the now policy outlined in the message will probably bo opposed in the Cortes by the sev enty conservatives who follow Canovas , by the seven partisans of Lopez Domini- guoz , by the eight conservatives of the Ilomera Hobeldo group , by twenty-live republicans obeying Castelar , Sahneron and Ply Murgal , aud by six republican homo-rulo deputies from the West Indies. The government counts on the stanoh support of a coalition of 301 deputies , 250 of whom are liberals personally devoted to Sagasta. In the upper house the gov ernment Is backed less strongly , many of the 330 members who 'nominally support it being hostile to democratic legislation. Sagasta has studiously avoided alarming Inj the queen regent or .her generals by pressing too inauy reforms upon the .Cortes. Ho lias great difficulties'to. or - como , n split in tiio cabinet having boon only just averted iy by his tact aud firmness.

If the re ports afloat may bo trusted , Signer Do protis made the advances to the pope through a German prince of the blood , Prince Bismarck having flatly declined his good olllccs. Baron Von Schlicger was not consulted. Great excitement Is felt in the Vatican nt the third reading of the Prussian ecclesiastical bill , though the papal organs tire discreetly advised not to rejoice over n Catholic victory too loudly. * . * * . Paris is again furnishing rumors of strained relations bctwcon Franco and ( Jcrmany. It is said that the unfriendly feeling which * Bismarck entertained toward England while Ferry was in oflico is now directed toward trance , and points as an evidence of the existence of n hostile sentiment to the result of the Greek dltllculty , in which Bismarck has boon all along bout on making Franco fool the futility of her diplomacy in for- cigh affairs whou she is acting alone and without the aid of Prussia. All of which means that wounded French vanity is again endeavoring to Und some foreign c\cusc for her defeat in the diplomatic arena. Spain is excitedly awaiting the coming of an heir to the throne. The approachIng - Ing conlinomont of Queen Christina is imminent' , and the court and nation are hopeful that the late King Alfonso's pos thumous child will bo a prince. The usual elaborate preparations have boon made for the ovont. The diplomatic corps , state ollicials and courtiers have boon warned not to leave Madrid , but to prepare themselves to offer congratula tions. Brilliant illuminations are in prep aration.

The law- abiding people ol every nationality in this country have endured much from these apostles ot chaos. They have smiled incred- uously at their threats , pitied them for their disordered brains , aud even accepted good- naturedly the flaunting of a red flag In their faces , but there Is a limit to the forbearance of society.

SOUTHERN MEN AND MANNERS An EntorprlBltiR Press Freedom ol Speech Sotno InterestingItcmlnt- sccnccs NcbrnRkn'a First Territorial Governor. LITTLE ROOK , Ark. , May 12. [ Editorial Correspondence , ] The distance from Omaha to Little Hock is about 800 miles as the crow flics , and the trip can bi made in thirty-six hours. Measured b\ comparative seasons the distance is fullj thirty-six days. To mo it seotncd like jumping from early May into the middle of Juno. The ti classed verandas are em bowered with blossoming honeysuckles llowors everywhere in great profusion- roses , straw hats , linen dusters , white muslin dresses in full bloom ; mocking birds are singing high and low , and strawberries go begging at 10 cents a quart. L1TTLK HOCK is not only the capital , but the commer cial metropolis of Askansus. With the exception of Atlanta , no other city in the cotton states can boast such substantial growth. At the close of the war Little Hock had a population of about 5,000 ; to-day she has fully 25,000 , with a fait prospect of oven more rapid increase during the next ten years. Located in the very heart of a state that now con tains over a million of people , with un rivalled facilities by rail and water to make a largo area of Arkansas tributary to her merchants , manufacturers and and capitalists , her future does not de pend on the incidental patronage of state legislatures or state institutions. A Jbird's-eye view of the city of Little Reek , witli the charming landscape pre sented by the Arkansas river and valley in ail thcshudcs and colors.of . this season , sketched by a true artKt.-would make a romantic picture. Sketching and paint ing arc not in my line , however , and a common-place description of the brick , mortar , iron and lumber , which consti tute the material out of which our cities arc built , would not bo very interesting. The churches , school houses , stores , warehouses , hotels , factories , mills , rail road depots und dwellings which make up this city arc very much the same as those of other cities of equal population. The most PROMINENT PUBLIC BUILDINGS are the capitol and United Stales court house and postoiRco. The capitol is venerable and unique. When first occu pied by the state dignitaries some fifty- five years ago , it was doubtless looked upon by admiring natives us an imposing * structure. In design it belongsto the classic order of architecture , with lofty columns , grand pilasters and stately porticoes ticoes , fashioned after pure Greek mod els. Wliilo preserving its classic appear ance , the building to-day appears sadly dilapidated. If there is to be any more reconstruction in Arkansas , the iirst thing to reconstruct should be the old capitol. The only visible reminder of THE RECONSTRUCTION ERA is a heavy sioso gun standing in the capitol tel grounds. This is the "Lady Baxter , " sain my friend Hedges , who some years ago was part owner of the Lincoln Globe. It is one of the guns that Governor Bax ter planted hero in 1874 when ho laid siege to BrooKs , who was entrenched in the capital , but finally had to capitulate to confederates when Grant recognised Bax ter as the legal governor. As a matter of fact , Brooks had u good majority of the votes , said a prominent democrat who will bo candidate for the next congress - gross , to mo yesterday , but Grant had compromised himself by promising to recognize Baxter and ho dumped Brooks out of the executive chair. That was a very exciting time , said my friend. Brooks is dead now and Baxter has re tired to private life on a plantation. The federal building , as the United States court house and postofllco are called , is a fire-proof , four-story , cut- stone structure , built by Undo Sani about ten years ago. The stone granite and sandstone was imported from Vermont and Ohio under direction of the notorious supervising architect , Mullet , although there is an abundunco of granite and sandstone in Arkansas good enough tor any building. The exterior is much handsomer than the Omaha postoilice , but the inside finish is not as elegant or as substantial. Brick and stone are the materials chioily used here , with a sprinkling of frame cottages , which are mostly occu- hotels. The retail traQlc appears very heavy , and all lines , particularly dry goods , clothing and provision stores , are well represented. A dozen jobbing houses carry heavy stocks of groceries , dry goods , wet goods ( liquors ) and tobac co. The cotton merchants tire very im portant factors in the commerce of the city. Although the cotton shipping sea son is nearly over , 1 noticed a largo num ber of cotton bales in their warehouses. It is hardly necessary to observe that TIU : PIIESU is well roprcsciUn : ! , The Arkansas Ga > /otto , the leading daily of the state , is the oflicial organ of the dominant party , with the Little Rock Democrat , an after noon daily , representing an aggressive clement of "outs. " "The Arkansaw Traveler , " which has achieved a national reputation , is at homo hero , and the col ored population has a vigorous exponent of its .lights and interests in the "Man sion , " a weekly edited by a full-blooded American of African descent. So much for Little Hock as a city. TJIK noi'LK : OK i.rm.E ROCK , 1 am not of tho.so who como jouth ex pecting every southerner to bo a lank , grim desperado , wearing a slouched hat over his unkempt , long hair , with his pants tuokod into his boot-tops , a big navy revolver and cartridge belt strapped around his waist , and un Arkansaw tooth- piok playfully sticking out of his coat alcove , I was aware before starting for Arkansas that such typical southerners , likn the Wild Bills ami Pare Devil Dicks of the far west exist only In yellow back novels. Hut I will confess that I am ngieoubly disappointed in the real southerners as I have found thorn hero during my brief stay. People I have mot in ktrollmg through the utruiits of Little Hook during the past three days differ only very little in their apparel und nppenrnncH Irani pconlo that promenade the ntniuts ot Omuha in July. The only striking diuuronuo 1 lutvo boon able to notu la in the nnmbor of walking caiios , which both old tiud young mon carry , and the number of colored people whom you meet everywhere , Currying walking cuni.'B u u prevailing southern fashion , which even dudes of ubojiy color ofton-npe. Tlje- negro population' of Littltt Hook is ovur ono'thirti ' , und that explains why color \a \ so prevalent. In tha highways and bywuvs , 1 linvu comn In contact with nil classes , lawyers , merolwmts. planters , bankers nUU editors , with oRmlalb high and low , from sheriff to governor , and from land olllccrfl to United Stales mar- shul. I have freely talked about subject * and issues , past nnd present , that were most likely to draw out the partisan and sectional feeling of the true southerner , but 1 have ns yet to hear the first disloyal expression from the mouth of nn ox-.con- fcdorato. To all appearances the widest latitude Is given hero to KllKK SREKCIt , and a man may talk and print almost what ho pleases on any question without being molested. I have taken pains to ascertain the physi cal , civil ixnd political condition ot the negro population of Arkansas , but mtul reserve this interesting subject , together with a review of the local government of this city and state , for my next letter. Passing up from the depot toward the business center yesterday I noticed that one of the residence .streets is named IZAltD STREET. That recalled to my mind the fact that Arkansas furnished Nebraska a territorial governor in the early days whoso niuuo was Murk I/ard. Upon inquiry at the capitol I find that George Ixard was territorial governor of Arkansas In 1825 , and Izard county , in this state , is named uftcr him. 'Iho llrst governor of Nebraska , Mark Iznrd , was Ins brother. He died at his homo in St. Francis county about the close of the war. Ills wife died about two years ago. Three sons survive. Ono of tlicso lives on the old homestead now. INQUIRY AHOUT SOMK OMAHA MEN. "Do you know Nelsu Patrick and Dr. Miller ? " asked a Little Hook old timer to whom I had been introduced ; "nnd how Is Lyman Richardson ? " "They are all living in Nebraska , doing well1 said I ; "Patrick is in a fair way of becoming a millionaire , if he can got his torpedo boat introduced in thu navies of thu world , and Millar and Richardson own the Omaha Herald. " "Tlioy wore all hero during the war , " said thu old tinier , "Miller and Patrick made considerable money horn in cotton speculations. They ciuno in after Gen eral Steulo who favorcd'them in getting cotton. " The whirligig of time has brought about many changes. E. K. STAGE BEAUTIES IN TRAINING. Pretty Faces to Do n Prominent Feature of the Next Theatrical Season. Now York Special : The next theatrical season in America is to bo characterized with an abundance of amateur actresses with professional beauty. The plans are all matured for a tour by Mrs. Lanptry , who will bring over an English company C9ntainuig several remarkably pretty girls. Experts who have boon her recent acting in London report that she is in. nowise improved artistically , and that she will have to depend , as before , on adventitious interest for audionccH. The rumor that Miss Junnio Chamberlain meant to go on the stage received neither alllrmation nor denial when her attention was called to it , and she scorned willing to lot it be inferred thtxt she had such a project under consideration. T. Allston Brow , a dramatic agent , says that ho has been consulted with as to tua engage ment of a company to _ support an En- gljsh women next winter on a tour of this country , and the requirements ex actly lilted the case of Miss Chamberlain. thotich the identity of the proposed star was not divulged to him , There is something like certainty. however , in thu instance of Mrs. James Brown Potter , the society hello and ama teur actress. Negotiations are in pro gress for her professional debut next autumn with the Yokes company of com edians in tliis city. That party has had a singular experience here , it was orig inally made up in London , pluofly , of amateurs with more or less social distinc tion. under the direction of Rosin a Yokes , once of the Yokes family of bur- lesquers , but who had been for" several years in somewhat fashionable mar ried retirement. Her scheme was to exploit her players for what they really were , but John Stetson , the Now York manager , to whom they wore contracted. had no faith in what he btylod "tho souial racket. " nnd insisted that they should be advertised in an ordinary , professional way. This was done during the term of employment by him. But Rosina had instructed her actors to provide them selves with letters of introduction to pretentious - tentious New York families in as great a number as possible , and thcso were duly presented , with the result that wealth and fashion be came interested. The Yokes season at the Standard thcatro last fall began so discouragingly , owing to the very mod- crate talent of the < > ntortainers , that a quick return to England was announced : but the entertainment was so neat and polite nnd the appeal to "society" so adroit that failure with the average pub lic was soon turned to marked success with a special class , and now Daly's theatre is being crowded during a return engagement. It is in this organization that Mrs , Potter is likely to take a place next season. "My wife has not yet embraced the opportunity , " says Mr. Potter , "though I am not prepared to say that she may not become a professional actress. " Miss Yokes Hays : "Wo should bo glad to have Mrs. Potter with us , and nothing that wo can do to make a debut In our company agreeable shall bo de nied. I cannot imagine any stage sur roundings that would bo loss ropcllant to her , nor that would bo more advantage ous to her professionally.
