Notary Public , OMAHA should encourage manufac tures , or llio real estate boo.tu cannot bo kept UP very long. WHY can't tlio street railway company put conductors on llio main line ? The bobtail car is a nuisance. IT npponrs to bo the understanding among the domoerats of congicss that no ' Iurllior oflbrt will bo made this session to consider tlio tarifl bill. WHAT about tlio exposition ? Do the managers propose waiting until Septem ber before they begin active piepara- tions ? Tlioy have only ten weeks now for preliminary work. Tar. Kansas City Times makes this eminently sound observation : "There ought to bo some way of keeping base ball scores out of the newspapers , and civing the space to bunk clearings and real estate transfers. " THE Belgian poodle sent to Mrs. Cleve land , and which for thn moment is onn ol the curiosities of the white house , con verses only in French. The efforts of yisitors to interest the "purp" by shout ing "rats , " are consequently dismal fiuHi res. THE United States senate on Tlnusday passed the bill fixing the salaries of federal - oral district judges at $5,000 , which is an increase , nnd prohibiting nepotism , so that hereafter a judge of the United States court cannot appoint a relative tea a position under him. THE Omaha team lacked only one minute and two seconds of getting there. That isn't much time , generally speak ing , but in u boat race it is a good deal. Our team will wiu next yoa'r if the scriptural adage that the first shall bo last , and the last shall bo lirst , doesn't fail. IK all the additions to Omaha that are now outside of the city limits wore made part of the city proper , the assessment for municipal purposes could bo raised a million dollars. That alone would yield from $35,000 , to $40.000 lovonne , available for public improvements , police and lire departments. THE Independent says : "Tlio telegraph , the telephone , and phonograph are as great miracles against the background of past centuries as the birth of Isaac or the resurrection of Christ. " If this para- uraph had been penned by the editor of n secular paper it would no doubt have created a great deal of adverse comment among religious people. Tnn opponents of the Pasteur treat ment for tlio prevention of hydrophobia will find great encouragement in tlio fact that a girl who was subjected to his treatment in April , and sent homo as out of danger , has just died of hydrophobia. This makes quite half n dozen cases in which thu Pasteur system has proved a failure , but perhaps thcso are not sufll- clout to warrant a verdict against its nflic acy. Till ! founds of the anarchists on trial in Chicago are leaving no means untried lo help tlio oauso of the reckless men who are huM responsible for the murder of policemen , and to defeat justice. They liavo adopted a policy of intimidation towards the witnesses of the prosecution , some of whom , fearing for their lives , Imvo refused lo appear. It is notworthy i that thcso pcoplo who have derided , do , . lled and outraged luo laws are in its prasp tlio most arrant cowards. They nro bravo in words and in tlio skulking methods of the assassin. AN animated contest for the democratic nomiimtion for governor Is in progress in Georgia , the contestants being ox-United States Senator John H. Gordon nnd Major Bacon. The former has the support of thn present Eonntors , Drown and ( . 'ol- quitt , and the Atlanta Constitution , while iaoon is being vigorously backed by tha Augusta Chronicle uml Macau Telegraph. The iight has become very warm , tind the record of Gordon as n jallroad lawyer , his connection , with 'the convict labor of the fit.-Ho. and other damaging facts In hia political career are being most fully and freely exposed. Gordon has certainly made hit connec tion with politic * n great succn t , Ihr.incl. ally , having within u comparatively fov yoftra bccomu one of thu wealthiest men of llui south.

It is announced that arrangements are ; nearly completed for the thirteenth na tional conference of chanties and corrcc * lion , to bo held this your at St. Paul , Min > ncsota , from the loth to the 21st of July. . The programme as at present arranged gives promise that the proceedings of the forthcoming conference will bounusnallj Interesting and Instructive , and It i < gratifying to liavo the assurance of the ollicors that the indications of a largo at- londanco are most favorable. Looking over the list of subjects that will bo prc' sontcd , wo find them nearly all of a strictly practical character , nnd among those who will contribute papers upon vital matters relating to charities nnd correction nro lllshop Ireland of Minno < sola , Rev. H. ' Hcber Newton of Now York , ex-Governor Iloadly of Ohio , Hon. Henry W. Lord of Dakota , Hon. P. B. Sanbornof Massachusetts , Hon.Simon Wolf of Washington , 1) . C. , be sides a number of ladies who liavo had extended experience in tlio work whlcli it Is the special purpose and province ol the conference lo consider nnd discuss. These annual conferences liavo unques tionably been of inestimable suivlcu in promoting public interest and cnlaigiiij ; popular knowledge respecting tlio ex tremely important subjects of charities and correction , which are over present ing now conditions and suggestions to the contemplation and study of those who fiom duty or Inclination give them attention. They make an ever-growing nnd an inoxlmstinblu demand upon the regard ot the creators and the admlnistia- lore of law , the students and investiga tors in thcduiKUlincnt of moral activities , the philanthropic , and that useful class charged with caring for the unfortun ates who aio dependent upon the public benuliccnco or become subjects of penal restraint and control. Those conferences , therefore , merit all the interest and support that can be shown them. Nebraska is not behind the younger states in the attention her people have given to the subjects of charities and correction , but there might bo creator interest manifested in them. The time is not far distant when they will make : i much stronger and more urgent demand upon our attention than they now do , and it will bo well lo bo prepared to answer such demand by the best methods which knowledge and experience ap prove , ft is intended to send to St. Paul a delegation from this state charged with the special duly of inviting tlio confer ence to meet nc.xt year in Omaha , and it is desirable that this delegation shall have the authority to oiler induce ments not lilcely to be outweighed by these which will undoubtedly bo pre sented by other communities. There is every facility at hand for the adequate and excellent entertainment of those who would attend the conference , and there arc strong general reasons that can bo urged in favor of holding it hero , but the delegation should be enabled to supplement thcso by the as surance of an open-handed liberality on the part of our people that would com pel attention to our invitation. The oficct which a meeting of the conference hero would have in conserving and stimulating the work of charities and coircctionin Nebraska justifies an earn est efibit to secure the conference of next year for Omaha. An Unprofitable Treaty. The question of terminating the treaty of the United States with the govern ment of the Hawaiian Islands is nending in congress , with some prospect that the notice of the desire of this gov ernment to terminate the treaty will bo approved. The fact appears to bo that it is an altogether one-bided arrange ment , tlio benefits from which are wholly enjoyed by the planters of the islands and a combination of sugar refiners in San Francisco who are also largo owners of plantations in the islands. The practical effect is that tlio United States is annually subsi dizing the Hawaiian sugar and rice planters to the extent of aboutl)00,000 ( ) , for which liberal consideration there are no compensating advantages. Tlio ex ports from this country to the islands are said to amount to less than the sugar du ties remitted by the treasury under the provisions of the treaty of 1870 , and it docs not appear that they have been materially increased as a re sult of the treaty. Indeed , it is claimed that the treaty has utterly failed to divert any part of the European tnulo of the islands to the United States , as was promised by the Hawaiian nego tiators , but on the contrary the planters , enriched by the benefits derived from the treaty , have bccomn more liberal custom ers of European manufacturers and mer chants , On the other hand the producers of thn islands cannot do without the mar kets of California and Oregon for their sugar and rico , as the freight charges for transporting the same to Europeor the eastern parts of the United States would bo quite throe times larger than the freight charge from the islands to San Francisco. Neither can they obtain the bulky and , in many cases , perishable supplies which they obtain from San Fiancisco as cheaply clscwhoio. Obviously , therefore , thoio is no sufficient reason why this jiiglmndlo arrangement , wliich soonis to bo so entirely in the Interest of the Hawaiian planters nnd a fmv sugar refiners , should continue. It is not the tort of reciprocity which is reciprocal. The repoit that in tlio nvont of tins ter mination of the treaty a European syndi cate is ready to lonn the Hawaiian gov ernment ton million dollaiv , with the expectation that they will obtain pos session of the sovereignty of the Islands , is doubtless correctly regarded as a moro invention of those who fear that the treaty will b abandoned and their inter ests destioyed or sencupl1/ damaged , TJ.at Iving Kali'.kaua la nor.r enough to bankruptcy to desire R ! om ; is not doubted , but he hus no security to sivo that money lenders who expect ever to get a rrlr.rn of their loan would bo llkoly to accept. The government and ciown lands I'I ' for culti- Tutiun , irc elthnr sold or leased and the extravagant king has really nothing to ollor in the form of acceptable security , Furthermore luo planters are said to bo tea a man opposed to a loan. In any event tliiu throat of a European syndicate Is a bugbnar which ou lit not lo DC permitted to ufl'cct the question roUtivo to the con- linuancn or termination of the treaty.

Other IinnOfl Xlinn Ottr * . There U no abatement of interest o : activity in the English campaign. Mr Gladstone concluded his canvass In Scot land with a speech at Glasgow on las Tuesday , the occasion being signali/c by a most enthusiastic- popular demon stratlon. His return journey was , a most points , a repetition of his oxperienci when ho went to Scotland. Ho will resume sumo active work In the campaign 01 next Monday , when lie is announced ti speak at Liverpool. The lory and con sorvalivc leaders have not been losinj any time , pcihaps the P'ost notabli declaration from tltis source dining tin week being the manifesto of Lord Ran dolph Chuichill , characterized by vehc incut abuse of Mr. Gladstone and a pas sionnto appeal to tlio prejudices of tin English people. Popular expressions o enthusiasm aru not always a safe guide but there is good reason lo bollovts tha the liberal cause has boon gieatl ; strengthened In Scotland , and thn the election will icsult in relurn ing nn increased representation of liomi rule liberals from that country. In Eng land llio eonseivativo cause is not believed lioved to have gained anyllung from tin coercion arguments of Lord Salisbury and the ill-natured appeals of Churchill nnd there are reported indications of ai increwing liboial sentiment in une\ pouted quarters. The conservative can diUulos , it is said , are becoming bowil dured by the eccentricities nf theii several leaders , and aic heartily wishing for a leader who would lead. The op position by Lord Salisbury to the clause ! in the elections bill intended to lightci the expenses of an election will be freely and olleetlvoly uiud against the torj leader. * w According to the arrangement the dis solution of parliament was to take phiei to-day. The piogrammc was that tlu queen would hold u privy council lliii afternoon , at which the royal proclama lion dissolving parliament would bi signed. Upon tlio signature o the document , members of the housi ot commons will cease to bt the representatives of the pcoplo , and tlu sixteen Scottisli representative peon must be ro-elucted by their peers at Holy road. In the ordinary boriotiglis July' is the liist and July 7 the last possible daj for polling , and in the counties and dis trict burroughs .July 0 is the Hist and Julj 10 the last possible day for polling. V * The forty-ninth anniversary of the a& cession of Queen Victoria to the throne occurred on last Sunday , and was dulj celebrated throughout England by spe cial religious services. Preparations foi celebrating her jubilee a jcnr hence wort begun some time since. It is inturestiii" to note that only tlueo reigns liavo ex ceeded hers inlongih in the 1,050 years which have passed smcu Egbeit the Saxon conqueied the proxincos of Kent , Sussex , Wcssox , Essox , East Anglia , Mer- oia and Northumberland , and lirsl assumed the title of king ol England. Henry III. reisncd fifty- six years , Edward III. lifty years and George III. sixty years. These are the four longest reigns in English history. Among living monarelis none approach any of these in duration of sway except Dom Pedro of Brazil , who has reigned fifty-six years , having ascended the thionc when only five years of ago. Francis Joseph of Austria lias ruled thhty-ulght years , and William twenty-five years , ten years as King of Prussia nnd lifteen as Emperor of Germany. The only reign in a great nation outside of England that exceeded Victoria's was that of Louis XIV. of Fraueowhich extended through seventy-two years. Eli/.abcth ruled fortv- live years , which was a longer period than that of any other of England's women monarelis except Victoria. Tuesday , in the Lronch senate , the bill for tlio expulsion of the princes was passed by a majority of 31 in a total vote [ ) f 218. The result had boon a foregone conclusion and was consequently received by the pcoplo withontuny demonstration. A meeting of tlio followers of Prince Napoleon on tlio same evening was slon- ilcrly attended , and an Invitation of L'nnco Victor to his partisans lo meet liim at his homo on Wednesday was not largely responded to. But notwithstand ing this apparent popular indifference Lhero is believed to bo a strong under current of sympathy with the banished lirinces which may find a more favorable appoitunity for expression in tlio not far tuturo. The count of Paris arrix'cd in London on Thursday , where ho issued a manifesto protesting against the expul sion , charging the republic with cow- irdico , and affirming thai he lias the con- idcnco of Franco and at the decisive lour will bo ready. The oilier exiles liavo betaken themselves to safe nsx-lums. * * * According to the newspaper corre spondents the relations between Germany ind Franco are greatly strained. They ! ind tlio foundation for their roprcsonta- ivc.s in the general reason that the opin- on in Franco ib unanimous that Germany s seeking a pretext for renewed war , and .hero is some warrant for the belief that inch a fear exists , in the fact that of ate French officials and journals have icon unusually reserved in their criti- : ismd of Gorman policy and acts. On the Dart of Germany , it is not unlikely that .he now French army bill has excited lomo feeling against Franco. This bill virtually makes every Frenchman who las attained u certain ago liable for ac- ; ivo Borvico in the army during a period > f three years. Further than this , it pro- ) oscs the novel idea of imposing what s called a "blood tax" on all : hose who are mentally or physically in- : apablo of service. Tins lax is fixed at 1 centimes per day for the three years luring which the incapable would have icrved wore ho able to do so. Even ilergymon under this bill are not exempt rom service. But whatever the cause > f the present strained relations between .lie two countiics , the fact that it cxibts Is ivldonl to the administrative circles of ithnr European states. London officials it latest dates say that more than once linen the first week of Juno the relations jolvrcon Frunco and Germany were so it rallied Unit the recall of the Gorman am- m&fcador from Paris was hourly expected , f this bo the fact , it is evidence hat whether it bo caused by the sense of lefcat still ranking in the French heart ir } he feeling of insecurity that possesses he military putty in Germany , especially in view of Russia's Jnto nggrossivo attl tilde , nevertheless AitmUual German ant French irritation exists , and has of lati become so marked uS t J create quln ( a so rlous feeling of disquietude In Europi goncially. % The Spanish government is reported t < bo again very anxiotig | bottt the move mentsof thn Carllsus , who are said to bi steadily preparing in Catalonia , nl along the French frontier nnel in tin country south of the Jibro , In Aracoi nnd in tlio mountains of the Centre , tin old nurseries nnd hot beds of past Carhs risings. The government is aware tha they are rapidly recruiting men and in traducing arms , chiefly over the Pjio nccs. The movements of the Catlis agents nnd leaders are so careful and s < rapid that the government can onlyforn nn estimate ) of their piopaganda am preparations by thn growing insolence o the rural priests and villagers , by the in cioasiiiR alarm of a few of the liberals who begin to find tholr posllioi very hard , Indeed In the old Caills provinces the government Is In a cruc dilemma. If it acts with severity 1 might lire tlio train of insurrection lint by the Carlisls , and it picfcrs to remnii quietly on its guard , hoping that tin pope and the bishops may yet succeed ii detuning tlio CailisUfiomdistuiblnu tlu trnnqnility of Iho country. The vaticat and the bishops are said to bo doing theii best to attain this result , but nine out o wvery ton Spaniards think that the Car- lists , like the republicans , will soon b < troublesome.
