The heated term has come Cluanllncss and doctors' bills uro sworr enemies. advances in assessments are reported ported from all over the state. The sillj plea of tho. tax dodders that Omaha's as aessmont is proportionately too high has no longer a lop ; to stand on. THE weather is too hot to discuss San : Jones and his proposed visit to Omaha That religious mountebank may "draw like a mustard plaster , " but the time foi mustard plasters and sensational revivals is not in the heated season.

" CONGRESS still has a good deal of im porant work before it , and every day ol the enervating heat of Washington less ens the disposition of congressmen to ad < dress Chomsclves to their duties. On last Saturday one hundred and Iorty members vrcro out of their seals when the roll was called. A special effortwill ; bo made to liavo a full house when Mr. Morrison calls up his tariff bill , which ho is expected to do on Thursday next , and as to the 'other measures awaiting action it IE likely that there will bo a repetition ol the usual experience at the long sessions of rushing them through without ade- ejuato consideration. ! THE fishermen of New England , nol . content with the slow processes of diplo macy in dealing with the fisheries con- I trovcrsy , are 'manifesting a very determined - | mined disposition to deal with the dilll culty in a thoroughly practical way. In * ] formation from Gloucester , Mass. , 01 some days past has shown the existence of a general determination among the lishormen there not only to assort thcii rights but to defend them. A correspondent pendent found them very thoroughly or i ganizod and with the means at command rte carry out their programme , and un- ) douhtedly all the fishermen of Now Eng i land are actuated by the same purpose 'found ' to exist among those of Gloucester , 1A Now York dispatch gives nn account ol the sailing of three fishing boats with t supply of arms and ammunition and an extra force of mon. no oflbrt being made 'to conceal the intention to light if inter fered with. It is possible that demonstra tions of this kind may very seriously com plicate this issue , No OTHEii mnn has been qultoao active nor quite so successful in securingplacea for his constituent.

The Ororcrowtlcil The naval cstaMlshtnmt of the United States , as at present constituted , is not r branch of the public service reference tc which is calculated to enhance the pride and patriotism of the overage American citizen. Unquestionably the history ol the American navy Is a glorious record ol splendid gallantry and bravo achievement mont , of which every American is justl5 proud , and this service htis supplied tc the list of great heroes names that will bo illustrious through all tlmo. But it is quite impossible to regard the present SO' called tiavy of the country without r feeling of humiliation , unless one 1 ? wholly indifferent as to whether or nol the nation has a navy. As a matter ol fact there is a good deal of Indill'croncc in the matter , and until something shall arise to demand a navy this feeling is more likely to increase than to diminish Wo may fondly hope that no sticl demand will come , but it is r question more or less serious whether the country should not antlct pate the possibility by such adequate preparation as would assure a degree ol security and perhaps also have the cflccl of averting danger. Meanwhile the government has per force gone on creating candidates fet positions in tlio naval establishment until it has boon found impracticable tc provide for them. In 1832 the congress passed an act designed to remedy this dillictilty by providing for the discharge of surplus nnval graduates. In applica tion this measure was made retroactive , with tlio consequence of depriving more than a hundred aspirants to nuval honors of the object of their altogether worthy ambition. These unfortunates are now clamoring at the portals of congress to bo restored to their alleged rights , and a bill for this purpose has received con federation in the senate. In the discus sion a good deal was said on boll , sides relative to the assumed injustice of the act of 1883 , but wo arc chiefly interested in some of the facts which the discussion elicited. It appears from the unchallenged statement of one f-cuator that there are already throe hun dred olllccrs in the navy for whom there is practically no use , and the- annual cnsl to the nation of maintaining tltc.so little- employed gentlemen is probably quite half a million dollars. It is a somewhat impressive fact that since the war $383- 000,000 have been expended for naval purposes , and a fair appraisal of the entire - tire assets of the naval establishment to-day would probably not give a valua tion much in excess of ten per cent , oi the above amount. A very largo part oi this lias gone to the hundreds of ollicers who in that time have rendered little erne no service , simply because there was lit tle or no service to be rendered. Still the educational mill at Annapolis grinds on and annually sends out its grist ol candidates. It can bo of no present importance to in.quiro where belongs the re sponsibility for this condition of ajlairs , but the obvious alternatives are that cither the creation of candidates for naval officers must bo greatly curtailed or provisions should bo made for their employment by enlarging the naval es tablishment. It would probably not bo unwise to give the educational mill at Annapolis a rest of a few years. In a Pitiable Plight. Tlio democratic party of Ohio is in a pitiable condition. For several years past it lias been going from bad to worse , reaching the climax of its unscrupulous and reckless course in the glaring frauds upon the ballot at the election of last fall in Cincinnati , and supplementing that rascality by an attempt to override tlio inferior courts and use the supreme court in order that it might got the fruits of the frauds. There has been nothing any where else in recent politics at all com parable in reckless rascality to the course of the Ohio democracy under the manipu lations of McLean and his unscrupulous factotum , Allen O. Myers , nnd only cuiringtho worst period of the Tweed regime shall wo find a parallel to it. The salient facts of this history are all fa miliar to the reader of political events. The corrupt coal oil legislature which elected a United States'senator whoso right to his seat the senate has been asked to investigate on the ground that it was obtained by corrupt means , the degradation of tlm mipicmo court by using it for partisan purposes , the Cin cinnati frauds , and the revolutionary at tempt of the men who profited by the frauds to control a branch of the legisla ture , or , failing in that , to stop tlio ma chinery of the government all those facts every reader of current history is tanuliar with. For tlio good name of Ohio , it would bo well if the record could bn obliterated. The parly having gene to the extrem ity of political wickedness under its lute loaders , and those leaders having appar ently , tor the time being at least , ex hausted their resources for mischief , there is sonic promise that the better elements , which have been overawed by the rubble , will assort themselves and endeavor to lead the party back into htraightor paths and the practice of less dishonorable methods. The Ohio club , a dem ocratic organization in Cincinnati , lias just issued a manifesto to the party , in which , with most commendable mondablo candor , the frauds committed in democratic wards of Cincinnati last October is acknowledged , and the party is appealed to to purge itself of the ole- mouts which have been "dragging it down from its high functions to bubsorvo private nnd corrupt ambitions. " The loss of public confidence those frank club uuiii concede to liayo been due to past misconduct , and tlio party is notified that it must reform its ways if it hopes to in crease its strength ami regain power. Improvement in the conduct and methods of n political party is a fact al ways to be welcomed , but from our knowledge of tlio present character of the democratic party of Ohio , nnd of tlio men mostjulhicntial in its councils , wo are not ho'peful of any great and perma nent change for the better. The state convention , which is to meet in Toledo on the 18th of August , will of course make the usual fair promises to the people , but it is too much to expect that it will fchov ; the courage -of the Ohio olub and frankly confes.-i its -past faults and crimes , without which assurances of future gopd behavior" will have little-value , Jtctoro the democratic party of'Ohio can nguiu tafoly bo trusted with power , it must find oilierIcattewthan McLean anrt Hoadly , and it scorns uroba- bio Unit U must wait for their successors until the growing generation of demo crats can supply them. Cruel TnrlfrTnTiUlon. The current , fiscal year of tlio national government will end on the last day of the present month. The date is so near at hand that a fairly correct balance be tween income and outgo can bo struck. The result suows an excess of revenue over expenditures of $8.,000,000. Tins will Lo nearly $22,000,000 , more than the surplus revenue of the preceding year , nnd $15.000,000 above the estimate made by Secretary Manning in his annual report - port of last December , 'lino enormous amount of excess in roremto represents eighty-live millions of excessive taxation paid by tlio people of the United States , to maintain nn oppressive and needlessly high tariff. Its accumulation is tlio nnswcr given by the democratic party to the demands of the country for tax reduction , and which the platforms of both parties pledged themselves to meet in the present congress. At a time when trade is languishing , industry staggering from overloaded markets , nnd tlio pro ducers suU'erinirfroln low prices for tlio products of their farms , the suicidal policy of high tariff taxation is still main tained because industrial monopolists and a corrupt cordon of protected inter ests are nblo to thwart every effort to relieve lievo the country of the burden. Eighty * five millions of surplus revenue is a scorching rejoinder to tlio argument that the revenue requirements of the country demand our present tariff taxes. A mil lion unemployed laborers and : v half a million industrial millionaires is tile an swer to the cry for continued pap to stal wart infant Industries. No attempt to befog the issue by raising the bugbear of free trade can conceal the pregnant faetsi of an enormous ) treasury surplus , overloaded markets , uncniDloycd labor and mabsive fortunes acquired through popular taxation levied in defiance of the needs of the national treasury and the requirements of American industry. Free trade wo cannot have. Tariff reduction will be yet wrung from congress by an indignant and a sufferinc ; people in spite of tlio Sam Randalls and Pig Iron Kelloys , who lead the opposition to lightening tlio burdens which greed and avarice are piling upon the shoulders of the Ameri can people. Fnlso economy. The frequency of accidents on the Union Pacific lately calls for comment and investigation. Perhaps a searching inquiry would bring out in official form facts about tlio condition of the road-bed and rolling stock which have been mat ters of public rumor for some timti past. It is stated on good authority that the property has been permitted to depre ciate very seriously under a system of enforced economy. The force of section and track men has been materially de creased and repairs needed for the safety of the patrons and the maintenance of the system have been postponed on account of a depleted treasury. Econ omy has been the watchword , but the economy practiced in this particular lias proved itself misplaced. The new management find themselves seriously handicapped by the reckless ex travagance of their predecessors , and the costly mistakes made by the jobbers , who have left the Union Pacific pretty well dismantled in the hands of the pres ent proprietors. This may bo admitted without apologizing for the failure of the men who are now running the road to put it in a proper condition to transact the business which runs over its lines with safety and dispatch. Every other question of dividends and profits and construction should bo made sec ondary and subsidiary to that of maintain ing rv substantial and safe roadway kept in daily repair and supervised and worked by a sufficient force of mon. At present the Union Pacific system in Nebraska falls far below tlie standard. Accidents arc the natural consequences of this kind of economy , which prove the expensive folly of such retrenchment. The Cable Itond. Until some cheap , noiseless nnd reliable motor is put into general use cable roads must bo tlio only means of rapid transit in large cities on lines of heavy passenger travel. Horses and mules cannot main tain the speed desired for any length of tlmo , and in the winter season tramways and horse cars have often to bo aban doned altogether. These are facts which are now admitted by everybody. In cities like Omaha , where the majority of the population lives on the hill-sides , eablo roads become almost indispensable. Their relation to the horse railways is about tlio same as that of the electric light to gas. They will not do away with horse rail roads entirely , but they will take their place on streets that are overcrowded and on grades that are too heavy for horseflesh. The cable road in Omaha is an assured fnct. The company has ordered the rails and ballast and every proportion for ac tive work has already been nmdo. The only question to settle now is tlio loca tion. By natural selection the cable road would go on Fnrnani street which must always remain the principal thoroughfare east and west. To locate the road elsewhere would bo a costly blunder.Vhilo it is true that the street is already partially occupied by the horse railway there is ample room for the cable road alongside. In Chicago and in other cities tlio two systems operate side by side with out any inconvenience. Farnam street property owners nro nearly a unit in favor of tlio cable road. Four or five mossbncks are afraid that there will be too much business on Farnttm street , if they had ever been on liroad- wayinNow York they would have scon tlm busiest street in America obstructed by hundreds of omnibuses , drays and wagons from dawn till sundown and in spite of this din nnd crush , thousands of ladies shopping in the stores nnd hun dreds of elegant carriages edging then- way to the curbstones. * Later when it was proposed to locate a street railroad on Uroadwar objection was made that it would ruin the street. The road has been built anil travel and traflio uro if anything more brisk on Broadway than they have ever been. For the accommodation of the public tlio lirit cable road should be built on the Hroadwny of Omaha , and in duo time the cable' road system should bo extended oyer the liills wherever it will pay to run it. The roart should bo built only on fciteeU that arc brought to established gradOj nud when.possible on streets that nro already , paved. The public , cannot bo .expected to gcr fotir or five blocks out of the way to patronize n street car ni long as there is another car at their door TnnnE Is a loud ciy for grading bu where are the funds | 'o porno from ?

Brooklyn Englo : The history of hoi the only authentic portrait of tlio pros ; dent's bride wns souurod for publicatioi has never been told , and just nt the pros cut time is of no little interest. Aboti the time President-elect Cleveland begin packing ; up lijs bachelor Imps prepara lory to removing to the white house , : rumor got started that President Cleveland land had wearied of single blessedness am was about to take a wife. At that Unit every inlluential paper in the country had a eorresnowlont stationed nt Albany who..o sole dut.v was to dog the steps o. the lucky BiiHalouiun nnd detail hot am : smoking lor the next morning's issnt every movement. Dan Lament was striken with walking nightmare anil imagined ho saw reporters ambiihsed ir every shallow. At his suggestion the president-elect put himself' under the care of a couple of dectectives , who ao conipanied him wherever ho went and kept the reporters nt n safe distance , When the rumor that a lady woulel ligun in so pleasing a relation was started , the correspondents literally tumbled over each other in their anxiety to gut hold ol the facts , and abos'o nil , to secure the photograph of the prospective bride , Miss Van Vechtcn , Miss Pruin , Miss Cornell and a score of leading society ladies were interrogated in vain. The } wore as ignorant as the press of the identity of Mr. Cleveland's atlinuccd. In turn every prominent singer in the capital was inspected of being the one , At length a newspaper man hit upon tht expedient of pumping the maid servants , The chambermaid proved to be good looking and talkative , nnd it wns through this young lady's ' propensity to gossip that not onlrMi&s 1-olsom was discovered but the exact date and hour of the presi dent's departure from Washington ami the route he proposed taking ( which were jealously guarded ) wore ascertained. The maid admitted that Miss Cleveland and n young lady named Frankie Folsom - som , of Nundnvcro verv sisrcrly , anil assorted that Mr. Cleveland whiio gover nor hail several times made trips intc the country to visit her. She also hinted that the ladies , monnin < * ; Miss Cleveland and lira. Folsom and her daughter had within n week visitoel a loading Albany photographer and had their counterfeits taken and loft strict injunctions that no ouc should bo permitted to copy them or even to look at thorn. The hint proved sufllcicnt. The two newspaper mon in the plot managed to get hold of Dan Lament and suddenly put the question to him abruptly. Dan got mnd ( an unusual thing for him ) and informed the newspaper men so crustily that the future bride of Mr. Cleveland , if he contemplated taking one , was a con cern of his own and of nobody else , that limy wore convinced that they wore on tho' right track. Next eivery photographer - graphor in town was visited , anil n large establishment , dealing with the > best pe0- ! plo , was naturally suspected of being the place patronized by Miss Folsom. But the proprietor was obdurate ; so a ruse was resorted to. Ladies tire known fre quently to sit for their portraits , order a certain number sent homo , and let the bill run until presented. A reporter who was not known to the photographer was impressed into service. Ho stopped into the gallery , walked up to the pretty young lady who kept the books , and said i * 'l will pay Miss Folsom's bill if you have U rendy. " The bookkeeper turned to the ledger nnd then said : "Oh , the last lot were paid for , but Hit' new lot are donu. Will you take thorny" The grave young man said ho believed ho would tnko n couple back with him , and that Miss Frankie could instruct him what to do. The ufFablo young lady obligingly placed two photographs of Mis Folsom in an envelope ami handed thorn to the newspaper man. who could hardly forbear giving n wnoop of Je > y upon gaining possession of the treasures. Needless to say two newspapers simul taneously produced portraitB of Miss Folsom , to the horror oi that nmlnblei young woman nnd her accomplished mother. Dan Lament almost fainted , iintl General Fnnuworth is nnid to hnvo sworn n terrible military oath that ho would Hlay the buso traitor .vho published the. portrait. Hut Im gpiirotl him. The POI trait is the only authentic onn [ ) f Miss Folsom. U represents her sitting , iidefnco , with thu hair cut in a flowing liang nnd drawn up in the back high upon th head nnd secured in a wavy roll.
