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

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 <

The most important event of the wet

aspirations of the country. The majori
of Frenchmen may not desire war no' '
but they wish to bo ready for i

are in sympathy with Boulanger's poll

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

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

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

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. _

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. Hen
arc a few examples furnished by Sonatoi
Bock , of Kentucky , in reply to Sonatoi
Platt , of Connecticut , in the debate or
thn intnr-stalo commerce bill. They maj
bo found in the .Congressional Record ! ,

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 ,

Boston Advertiser : London i as senti

or. rather , Horace conveniently per
verted is right : "Man docs not greatly
change his mind when ho changes his

of Baconian idols , affectation , are all
proofs of our refinement of civilization ,
and are as characteristic of the England

able to guther together so largo an audi
ence as ho did at his open air discourse
upon the Areopagus had ho boon speak

less uorvadcd with the daintily fascinat
