THK city seems to bo at present me than usually infested with thieves a burglars. Numerous operations of t latter class , in sections of the city tl are entirely without police protcctlc have como to our knowledge within low days , it would seem that In antii pation of increased and better police si Vice an organized movement is tuaki by the criminal classes to gather the hi vest while it is within their reach. Ci Kens in exposed quarters will do well exorcise more than ordinary vigilam nud the police commission should see it that the now force is fully organized E < Uio required time , THE following crisp and sensible ess tin advertising , from the San Francis Call , Is worthy of the careful perusal every business man : "Advertisers n gleet their own Interest when they allc themselves to bo seduced into giving advertisement to a paper which otters : v print U cheap. Cheap advertising fs t tleareat in tlio world. It is money abi fr.toly thrown away. A newspaper pi priotor who has a largo circulation , kno A Oho value ot his space and never offers * do cheap work.

" ' Offonie. Governor Thnyer's . Where is Congressman McShano Iocs ho sanction the brutal nnd indecen assault which his paper U making upoi lovcrnor Tliayor , because forsooth h md not appointed its editor on the pollc commission and thereby had blocked th conspiracy to place Omaha under the in direct control of the lawless clement through Humphrey Jloynlhanf It seem ; to us that Mr. McShano owes it to him tolf as well as to liU oflicial position n representative of this congressional dli trlot , to treat the chlot executive of till state with common decency. It has como to a pretty nasa when th Kovornor of this state is to bo lampoone by irresponsible hired blackcuards b < cauio ho has had the backbone to reser their insolent demands In tli snlcction of the Omaha police con mission. It is no disgrace to Governc Thayer that ho is an old man but it is shame that an old veteran like Governc Tliayor who was one of the pioneers tin laid the foundations of this city and stal should be vilified through Mr. Me Shane's paper by a man who has scared been here long enough to voto. In giving mortal offense to the Kotli akcr , Morrisscy and Moynihan combim Governor Thayer has not only aote upon his honest convictions of olllcii obligation but has earned the gratitud of every law-abiding citizen of Omah : Governor Thayer can afford to ignoi the abuse to which he has been subjectc but Mr. McShano cannot afford to allo1 his editor to repeat the outrage. 1 lie Now Chief of Police. A great howl has been raised over tl appointment of chief of police by tl papers whoso editors had been rejoctc candidates for the police commissioi Who is Captain Seavoy , they ask , an how long has he lived in Omaha ? Comin from men who have lived in Omatiaonl u few months longer thun Captai buavey this outburst of pont-up indign : tion over the appointment of H tendc foot is , to say the least , decidedly amu ing. How much longer has "Captain Moynihan lived in Omaha than Captai Seavey ? The preference for a comparative nov comer shown by the commission ma ; however , bo criticised on the ground tin Moynihan was not the only candidat and others who have resided in Omah many years should not have been ignore ! On tills point the commission can enl justify its action upon the crounds th : it exercised its privilege to choose wlv soovor in its judgment was best llttcd fc the position. The fact that Captain Su : vcy is not an old resident of Omaha dot not militate against him. On the cor trary it may prove of material advan age , both to the police force and the cit ; He lias not mixed with any political fa tion , and lias had no part in any quarrc Ho has no pets on the old police for < and no friends to advance over the heads ontsido of the force Ho comes entirely untramollc by any obligations political or persona If competent to organize the forno an maintain proper discipline ho will ci counter fewer obstacles than an old res dent. The charter gives the commissio full authority to select the members i the police force regardless of their ell zonship. Any appointive oflico may I tilled by non-rosidents. This applies to tt city engineer and his assistants , as we us it decs to the chief of police , and h subordinates. This is eminently propc Wo have imported our school superintoi dents from Chicago , St. Louis and Cluvi land , why not import our chief of polii from California if ho is better iittc for the discharge of his duties tha men who reside among us. Omah cannot bo walled in by old residents. Tt majority of our citizens have locale hero during the east five ypars. It another thing with elective offices at honorary positions like those of the pc lice commission. They ought to bo filh by men who have by long resident established reputation. The citizens of Omaha have a commc interest in the now metropolitan polii forco. They want good government ar any chief who will organize our polii nnd make it clllciont in the preservatio of order will receive their cordial mor support. Saturday Hair Holidays. The now law of Now York , providii for Saturday half holidays , goes in effect to-day. Although this act is u derstood to have boon promoted by ro rcbontatives of the labor interest , it is n clear from tha reading of the law in wh respect this interest will bo largely ben fitted. The employes in the public offic of the state and counties , which are i quired to be closed , will receive frcedo from labor after 13 o'clock without Ic of pay. The banks will cleat at noon , before which hour i bank paper falling due on Si urday , must bo presented for pa mont or acceptance , and of cour the salaries of bank employes will not affected. But so far as general labor concerned the law really seems so ha no reference to it , leaving the question Vvork and wages to be settled bctwe the employer nnd employe. It is ve likely that a great many industries , wh not under any pressure , will regard tl just as they do every other legal holldn but certainly not all of such as do w have the generosity to pay their ei ployes for the half day lost. In the cases labor , will simply have secured t right to n half n day of idleness the cost of half day's wages , the aggregate this will amount to u vo largo sum that the wage-\vorkcrs of Nc York will pay for their privilege. On tether other hand , the continuance of any i : dustrlal business is not Interfered wi by the law , so that any ostablishmc can refuse the half holiday to its ot ployes , and doubtless at the outset vc many will. In no way , therefore , as v road the act , can wo discover what go oral advantage the labor interest expec or can dcnvo from this now law. T convenience of the employer will d tormiue whether or not the holiday shi bo observed by his employes , except their own risk , and hid generosity or la of it , will dccido whether or not t employes shall recpivo pay if the holld is observed. Perhaps no other plan w practicable , but it may bo shown that this matter the labor Interest has real obtained an unprofitable privilege , if , I deed , the arrangement shall prove tea a privilege to any largo number of the A Saturday half-holiday movement being promoted in Boston , and doubtle others will bo started elsewhere. T result of the experiment in New Yo will therefore have a widespread iutere : . < ! . -.0 [ f it shall bo shown to conduce to th noral. material nnd physical ailvantag ) f wage earners , as its advocates clalr t must , then a orompt and earnest cffoi will bo made for tlio general adoption c the system. Meanwhile , the uractlcr results of the law which goes into cll'ec n New York to-day , will have an in tore : for all who labor and who employ laboi Ilonntly. The Omaha morning slugger pr < nounccs the appointment of Captai Seavy as chief of police beastly. \ \ hy it beastly ? Is Captain Suavcy a dlssolut bummer ? Docs ho hang around tli Third ward dives und delight m tli beastly companionship of sluggers nn thugs ? Docs ho carry a slung shut in h overcoat pocket to strike down dcfonsi less men ? Has ho over been known I levy blackmail upon gamblers or live upon the earnings of crooks ? If so , h ! appointment is beastly nud should I revoked. As far as wo can learn , however , Car tain Seavoy does not answer thatdascri ] tion. He has no beastly habits or a.ssi cintions , but on tlio contrary , is repute to bo upright , manly and respectable. THK boodle gang that tampered wll the now charter at Lincoln last winter now at work trying to defeat Air. Lou Hcimrod'u confirmation as member t the board of public works. The organi of this disreputable clique has calli upon Mayor Hroatch to withdraw tl name of Mr. Helm rod and backs this ii solcnt request by a tissue of libels upc Mr. Hcimrod. Major Hroatch is in liknly to bo iulluenccd by this inoxcu rblo assault. Ho knows that Mr. Hein rod is a man of unswerving integrity un unblemished reputation. Ho is not an upstart adventurer i Omaha , but ono of our solid busine men. lie has been honored time an again by the German-Americans i Omaha. Ho is the president of tl Omaha Turners' Society and has bei president of tlio Maonnerclior. Ho hi been actively i Jentillcd with the Germai American school nnd every benovoloi antl industrial enterprise undertaken I Omaha Gorman-Americans. In selec ing him Mayor Hroatch has not only recr nizcd a large clement of our populatioi but a man whom the boodlors and co tractors' gang cannot inllueno'j. AN ignoramus on ono of the local p pors doubts whether Captain Seavc will be confirmed by the council as clii of police , Captain Soavcy is alreai confirmed. The police commissione have elected him chief , and the counc has no power to revoke the appointmen THE Oklahoma land question airain being debated and Captain Payne soul goes marching on. Tun Moynihan-llothacker-Morris5 ( combine is a burstcd bubble. Other Lands Than Ours. The most important event of the wet in Europe has been the French cabin crisis. The fall of the Goblet ministi was not wholly unexpected. It can into power only last December , and hi since encountered * a good deal of insidioi opposition. It was the twent.y-fourl cabinet Franco has had during the so enteen years' existence of the republi M. do Froycinot has boon asked by tl president to form a new cabinet , and tl result is awaited by Europe wii a good deal of anxiety. Perhni the most important consider : tion connected with the fomation i the now ministry relates to the questit of how Uoulangcr will ba disposed o Nothing could batter illustrate the ere ; influence to which this soldier has s tained than the fact that all , Euroi seems to measure the probabilities peace or war by what shall bo done wl him in the organization of a now cabinc For a man who not more than two yea ago was little known outside of militai circles , Boulangor has certainly had most remarkable rise. Ho probably d sires to remain at the head of the w olllco , but ho will do soon his own term The disposition of the dominant politic forces in Franco is at present poacofi Grevy and M. do Freycinct have no d sire to look for glory , cither for tl country or themselves , in a war. The is reason to believe that these states mi would prefer to see the preparations f possible hostility loss actively pursue Boulangcr is not in sympathy with thoi He is a younger man than either and soldier , and both ambition and eduo tion lead him in another direction. I moreover believes that war is inovitabl and is very sure , if ho bo given the oppc tunily , to do that which will rend it so. It is said to bo t opinion in Berlin that continu preparation for war must eventuate i war. The strain is already very gron The policy which Boulanger will mai tain if ho remains at the head of the w cilice , will certainly increase thotonsio This is undoubtedly the view that is b hind the solicitude of Europe , and it not questionable that the president ai M. do Froycinot would , in constructing now cabinet , like to quiet the provnilii unrest. But it may bo hazardous to sat rilico Boulangor. Ho has the am with him and represents the patriot aspirations of the country. The majori of Frenchmen may not desire war no' ' but they wish to bo ready for i whenever it must como , and thus th are in sympathy with Boulanger's poll of adequate preparation. A minist that shall abandon him will at the sac time condemn this polioy , and it is ve likely would have a briefer existom than the ono just fallen. It is a dilomn that may prove exceedingly perploxli to M. do Froyolnot. * . Three times the prlmo minister of Franc and tilling other public positions whi have made him entirely familiar with i the machinery of government , M. i Froycinet is one of the most distinguish among contemporary statesmen. He thoroughly in sympathy with republic : institutions , and was at ono time t favorite lieutenant of the "grand p triot , " Gambotta , sharing with that lustrious man the glory of the work t national defense. Before 1870 Do Fro cmet was not much more than a civil e gineer , out in September of that year was given a prefecture , and within a fc years ho was at Tours as chief of the m itary cabinet and virtual director of t war. He did wonders in organizing t new armies that faced the Germans nvery quarter of France. In * less 'th : four months this man , who had pass his early hfo in building railways , wr ing essays or making reports on llio sewers of Lciilou , raised OOO.OCK soldiers , armed thonj , and sent them into the field. Subsequently as minister o public works ho promoted great improvements - ments throughout Frnnco , many of which will roniatu for ages as monuments o his sagacity. Since then he has held tin presidency of the council , has admin istcrnd both war and-foreign all airs , am has perfected his experience of parlla mentary life. Tile prestige of his grca labors , his social ( poeltloii , the personal dignity of his character , and his mature age , all contribute to give him irroslstl' bio claims to the highest post In the state for which bo is thought to be the coiulnj man. Progress has been made on the coercion < cion bill as far as to dispose of the llrsl clause. As soon as this result was reached , notice was given of eighty amendments to the second clause , and the first of these brought forward was defeated after a brief discussion by tin application of the cloturo. There ari no new developments in the situation so far as the contending forces In par liaincnt are concerned. It is roportet that B.ilfour , chief secretary for Ireland , contemplates resigning , having growi tirotl of the position In which ho has boon u conspicuous failure. Balfour is the eighth incumbent of this oulco since 1832. The others were Lord Frederic ! Cavendish , murdered by the Invinclblcs Sir George Trovelyan , driven from hi ! post on account of the Dublin castle scandals , with which , however , ho was ii no way concerned ; Campboll-Bunner man , who wont out with the Gladstone government in 1831 ; Sir William Hurl Dyke , who retired in 1835 as tlio torj ministry was about to go to smash ; Will iam Henry Smith , who retired with tht ministers a day or so after he was swon into ofllce ; John Morlcy , who was score tary in Gladstone's home rule cabinet and Sir Michael Hicks-Beach , who took hold with the present ministry - try and who retired in Murcli The post is said to bo the most ditlicul in the gift of an English ministry Every man who has taken it , with tht possible exception of Morltiy , lias .sufforec in reputation. The cause is that all thos < appointed uro Englishmen or Sootchmei utterly unacquainted with Ireland. Tlici have to cope in debate on Irish affair Nith well-posted , clover Irishmen hkt Houloy , Sexton and O'Connor. The : cannot possibly do it successfully. Thcj have to rely on the Dublin castle hack ; for their information. That is often mis leading and manufactured. Morley sue cecdcd because ho went to the people ant their representatives for the facts am was in sympathy "with the nationalist anil opposed to the castle. Balfour's dudish manners and suporloi airs aroused the hbsQlity of the Parnoll- itcs from the start ! ( They have succecdct in laughing him into a resignation , it ap pears. Ritchie , who is to bo hid sueces ser , is a Scotchman , of fair ability , and i protege of Lord Randolph Churchill Hi may have bolter success than hia predecessor cessor , if ho has thfc help of his politica patron. | Gloomy reports como from German ; regarding the industrial situation in tha country. Tlio fiscal''policy ' of Bis marck seems to have led ti overproduction in nearly all department of industry , anil the result is scriou trade depression throughout the empire The soda industry , tlio iron trade , tin slate and stone works , the musical In strument manufacture , the fancy good business , including its album and loathe branches , the mustici asphalt works , tin Portland cement fabricators , the jut spinning , the great weaving mills o Groiz and Gera , the wool weavini mills of Old und New Rons , .th Upper Silesiun linen industry , th lignite converting companies have al been reported as greatly suffering. Th issues of lute Berlin commercial journal week after week , simply repeat the moa doleful records of a trade depression which , according to the Berlin cable grams , reached its culmination on th 10th inst. in the failure of seven or oigli largo woolen houses in that city , one fo the sum of 1,000,000 marks , the others fo larger and smaller sums. In fact , th report Is to the cfl'oct that there seems t bo no end to the failure of business house and to the ruinous suspensions of bank and business firms in other parts of th country , which have been pulled undo by this Berlin panic. The wear and tear of the gold coinag in Great Britain has at last brought pai liaraont to seriously consider the qucs tion of authorizing the issue of ono pound notes. It is certainly strange thn with the example constantly befor them of the convenient anil by no mean harmful employment of one-pound note in Scotland , the English government an Dcoplo should have adhered to the five pound limitation on bank notes until th loss of gold by abrasion , has torccd then to consider a method of provontio which has been practiced 'successful ) for generations by their nearest neighbor and kinsmen. The original objectio to the one-pound note was largely hu manitarian. That is , when counterfeit ing was a capital offence people rccoilci from putting the temptation of smal notes in the counterfeiter's way. I seemed worth while to hang a man for five-pound note , bnt not for a one. Th objection has survived ! as is not uncora mon in England , Xoig after the reasoi has been forgotten. Jn ! matters of financ John Bull is not mortJIA' conservative , lit is absolutely deaf. T > flo docs not ovei now hear the argtrfonts in favor o small bank notes , lie only feels that h has lost a pllo of money by carrying si much gold in his -breeches pocket wearing out the $ dld , and toarlnj out the pocket at j' , the same time A statement of theflgliting strength o Italy shows very plainly that the powe which attacks Italy in thu cominj European contest will not have a walk over. Tbo Russian army only is nuinor ically superior to the Italian. The availa bio strength for defensive purposes wbicl Italy can bring into action amounts to i total of 3,387,833 mon , and she has a permanent manont , though not permanently aetivi fighting force of 893,037 , mon. Th generals of the Italian arm ; are Morozzo della Rocco , Cialdin and the Dnko of Gaota. The firs line , the Mobile militia , and the Tor torlal militia are the army departments and in each of these the periods of train ing are so arranged that nearly 1,000,00 men are kept in a constant condition o efficiency for immediate service , Th Italian scacoast , further , is traversed b , railways which would aid greatly in th repulse of an enemy. Tlio navy , too , 1 strong , and surpassed only by the Brltis navy. The thrco departmental com mantis of the Italian seas are at preson under Vice Admiral G. Acton , Vice Ail miral F. Acton nud Rear Admiral Boi tolll ; the head of the admiralty is Rca Admiral Hauchia , antl the commander i chief is Admiral , the Prince of Savoic Cangnan. * * England has at last agreed to fix he maximum limit for occupying Esrypt a llvo years. Much may occur In the intoi val that would induce the norlo to con bent to prolong the term , so that th literal execution of the present compac can hardly bo counted upon. Still , sine the beginning of tlio present year Grca Britain has voluntarilv reduced he forces in the khedlvo's dominions She docs not like the cost Q occupation , nnd her presence there i ? constant source of irritation to Franco Yet the control of the Siusz canal and th insuring of a stable government for th Nile valley are points of absolute hu parlance to her. Probably the arrangement mont that would suit her best would b the right to throw troops into Egyp whenever she liked. That , however would imply a protectorate , with grav responsibilities as well as rights. . * The anxiety of the Italians because th Spaniards are trying to got a naval fool hold on the Roil Sea would bo Inexplicit bio but for the supposition that the latte have hit on u region which Italy hat already picked out for herself. Ther seems to bo u general disposition towan the acquisition of coaling stations m th Red Son , Russia having a little while ng been suspected of seeking a foothol there. The nation which everybod , seems ready to bar out is Abyssiniii which lies adjacent , yet has uo outlet 01 the coast. Meanwhile this anxiety fo naval anil coaling stations on llio Rot Sea may suggest what may happen whoi u canal greater than the Suez , opens i highway from the Atlantic to the Pacili between the two Americas. * % An immense amount of treasure , csti mated at ? 2o,000,000 , which has been so erotod in the palace of Gwalior , India by the late Maharajah , has been discov ercd. It was buried beneath stones ii pits filled to the brim with silver , chicll ; freshly coined rupees. In each pit was : plate recording llio amount of tlio treas ure , und the names of the ollicials win had assisted in secreting it. The Englisl government in India has taken the heart as a loan from the young Maharajah The native papers protest against this und the question will bo raised in parlia ment as to whether the taking of it as i loan bo not another narno for seizure. * An effort is about to bo made to onforc the German law against duelling. Undo the sanction of the Oborhaus two mom bcrs will stand judicial trial for provok ing a duel , but it is certain to end ii acquittal. In a rccont discussion of thi case in the Landtag , Count Sohalonburj declared that it was the ancient and in alienable right of the Gorman nobility t decide questions of personal honor at th point of the sword in spite of the fac that duelling was punishable under th penal code , and his declaration met wit ! approval. _ STATE ANDTKKHITOUY.

The simple plan by which the Union Pacific railroad and other transportation companies work their short haul policy was to charge shippers at interior nou competitive points the through rate foi the long haul , and , in addition , the local rate for the short haul. Of course , good ; were not carried through from Now Yorl to San Francisco and tlicnco back to the non-competitive point in the mtorior.but the charges wore as much as if they hat been carried on past the non-compotitivi point and then back. A carload of goodf for some such interior point as Elko Nov. , would bo delivered there , but ii would be billed from New York to Sat Francisco at the through rate , and ther there would bo a separate local bill o : lading for the short haul. It was a men fiction of railroad bookkeeping.

Against a law that is designed to sup a gigantic iniquity like this the cncliciarlcs , advocates , organs and tool. of railroad monopoly have arrayed them selves. A railroad built by the money and lands of the United States is made an instrument for hurrying and robbinc the inhabitants along its route. Farmers and mechanics in the interior must pay double , and sometimes treble , the rate of freight across the continent from coast to coast because they are at the mercy of u monopoly created by government sub sidy. And when a law to abate the iniquity is put in force all the hirelings of monopoly ely cry out in dismal ululations over the mischovious effects and consequences of such legislation. Instead of reducing the rates for the short haul to the long-haul rates , the Union Pacitia and other corporations have raised the through charges for freight so as to make thorn agruo with the charges for the lessor distances. This they have a perfect right to do under the law. But they can no longer charge shippers twice or thrco times as much as the through rate for hauling goods ovei only & portion of their lines , in the cose of the Union Pacific there Is ono obstacle to the accomplishment of its programme of conforming to the law by increasing the rate for through freights to the local standard shippers in San Francisco have the choice of water by the isthmus or around by Cape Horn. Transit on that line is somewhat .slow , ' but it has the ad vantage of cheapness. When the Union Pacific railroad company shall find the grain , wool , wino nnd other staples of California taking the water route they will soon come to terms. They will again fix their rates of through freight to com pete with water transportation , as they have done heretofore , and in doing so they will bo obliged to abandon their op pressive short-haul polioy. Thus ono great object of the law , the relief of the people alongtho route of the Pacific rail roads , will have boon achieved. A little patience , centlcmcn , and the intcr-slato commerce law will bo found an excel lent institution , Provincial London. Boston Advertiser : London i as senti mental as Boston. The truth is , Horace or. rather , Horace conveniently per verted is right : "Man docs not greatly change his mind when ho changes his country.
