THE ministers who have recently so journed in Omaha have bestowed high compliments upon this city and lu skir ting enterprise through the eastern press , but nearly every compliment is coupled with the romalc that the wretched sideWalks - Walks in Omaha are a great drawback to the comfort of visitors. A VERY peed evidence of the growth of Omaha's population it to bo seen in the in crease of street railroad travel This has been quite marked within the vast few months. The inconveniences and dis comforts Incident to thls.travel have also Increased , owing to the ( act thai tbo growth of business has uot boon mot by commensurate increase of facilities. DENVER is to have a new hotel it a cost of | l,350,00a She doesn't need anything ot the kind , of course but as Kansas City Is about to build one costing $1,000,000 Denver can not afford to play second llddlo. Omaha has hot yet been heard from , but U Is certain that the wil see Dourer and raise her. Clilcayo Muit , You are talking to the point. Omaha Will not be outdone by any city this side ot San Fraucisoo. It Is only a matter of time , and a very little time , that she will build a hotel as elegant and commodious as any cosmopolitan city can boast.

Reed will take high rank among our ablnst and roost careful business men. During n twenty years' residence in Omaha , Mr. Rood has acquired a reputation for rare business ability and unbending integrity , which in itself would afford him anund < ant capital In any enterprise. Mr. Reed I' ' is one of the few mnn whose faith in thr \'i \ future of Omaha has never been shaken , and his marked tinancial success is the reward of his sagacity and confidence , At the desk heretofore occupied by Mr , Henry W. Yates , the president of th Nebraska National , who has retired to the less exacting labor in the directors' ' room , Mr. Reed will find a broader field for the exercise of bis superior business tbilitlea. The Return of the Flags. In ordering the return to the authori ties of the states that wore ongngod In ro- bclllon the lings taken In battle by the union forces , and which by act of con gress have boon preserved ni trophies in the war department at Washington , President Cleveland committed the gravest mlstako of his public career. It was n mlstako from the patriotic point of vlow , n mlstako politically , nnd n mls take lu being without authority ot huv , so fur as appears , and therefore purely arbitrary. It was ono of these mistakes for which it is Impossible to And any adequate excuse , palliation or justifica tion. Its most charitable explanation Is found m assuming that it was the result of an Impulse , followed with out any consideration of ltd significance or possible effects , as Mr. Cleveland In timated in his letter to-day. It has not been the understood habit of Mr. Cleveland , however , to yield heedlessly cither to his Impulses or to advice , and therefore Ids explana tion of "moro careful consideration" will hardly bo generally accepted. Until the sweeping condemnation of his act by ! J50Oi)0 indignant veterans brought him tea a state of realization thcro ap | > oarcd to DB no fair reason to doubt that the action of the president , whether suggested or of his own conceiving , was taken deliberately. The proof of this would show that Air. Cleve land is wanting in several essential quali ties , without which no man can com mand the roapoct and confidence of a ma jority of the American people. The indignant condemnation of this proceeding already pronounced and which will bo heard m swelling chorus for some time to como , notwithstanding his compelo backdown , is a natural and warrantable protest against what every loyal man must regard as a wholly un- justiliablo surrender of the most sacred evidences of the valor and sacrifices of the soldiers of the union. It Is a kind of sacrilcgo which every man who fought to overthrow the cause these Hags represent will fool bound to resout as ho would the defamation of his courage or his loyalty , to which these blood-bought trophies bca ? unimpeach able testimony. It is a derogation of patriotism , a crimination of these who preserved these relics of conquered re bellion , a wrong to'tho memory of the soldlcrs dcad , aud art Insult to these liv ing. It bows the bead of loyalty to the foot of disloyalty , and rendering back the ambloma of treason to these who still honor them invites a ranowal ot homage to the lost causo. It wcro oottor to de stroy these llazs burn them to ashes and scatter the ashes to the winds than to thus dispose of them In the manner at first suggested by the proaident. It is quite conceivable that President Cleveland cannot appreciate the signiii- canco or moral worth , ot thews relics. Ho was not a soldier , aud it is not apparent that ho has any sincere sympathy with soldiers. If ho has over concerned himself in any way for thotr welfare the fact has not been discovered , and as to having any sentiment regarding their valor and sacrifices ho is uot capable of it. But in so grave a matter as this it might have been expected that tha promptings of or dinary discretion and common sense would have dissuaded him from the course he attempted to follow. A moment's reflection should , have convinced him , as he claims to have boon latterly convinced , that the proceeding ho ordered , would bo regarded by the loyal people of the country as tha most serious of offenses. Was such reUoclion pre cluded by his inordinate .desire to still further commend himself to the affection and confidence of the controlling element of the southern democracy ? If so , his reconsideration at once places 'him in an unenviable attitude. With re spect to tha president's authority in this matter action was at once take.ii in the supreme court of the District of Columbia to test it. Proceedings were also hastily instituted by General Boynton under instructions from. Governor For- aker , on behalf of the Grand Army of Ohio. A dispatch to a New York paper states that the order of the president was misconstrued by the adjutant genera ) , and that instead of a general surrender of rings it authorized the return of only one line , ' . ( 'his , however , is shown by the presidont's last latter to bo falso. It is not probable that the secretary " of war and the adjutant general" would both misinterpret an order that must have been couched in simple and explicit terms , aud from Ita very nature would command their closest attention. Unless all report * are badly at fault , the president will not be able , even by his retraction of the order , to avoid his responsibility in this matter , or lessen the gravity of tula supreme mistake ; of hia public earner. A Decision on Section Poor. The interstate commerce commission grows wiser with experience. The deci sion rendered on Wednesday regarding the meaning of the perplexing fourth section of the intor-stato commerce act , unanimously concurred in by the com mission , will be generally commended. It very greatly simplifies tha situa tion by correctly delhiins , agreea bly to tha obvious Intent of the law , the privileges of the railroads and the limited duties of the commission. It shows a complete departure from the policy which the commission has hereto fore pursued , clearly without warrant in the language of the law. For example there will bo no more suspyn.-nuna of-the long and short haul clause upon the ap plication of railroads for relief. It is declitpd thnt the roads must judge for thimtalvos in making special rates whether they are acting within the requirements of the law , tak ing the risk of the consequences' . If a railroad company believes the circum stances such as to warrant it in departing from the encral rule it may proceed to do so , subject to accountability bcforo the commission and courts upon a com plaint made to cither tribunal. The commission will take no amion in ad vance , ai it certainly has no authority to do so. The railroads will act with entire freedom of judgment , but with the liabil ity of being called on at any time to show justification of their action. This position is in accordance with iho view whicl the HKE has maintained since the commission began its labors. Wo pointed out when it adopted the policy which it has now abandoned that it had misinterpreted the intent of the law and mistaken its function. It is sim ply what it now only pretends to bo , h tribunal for determining the legality or Illegality of the action of the railroads under the law , when such action Is properly called in question In the way prescribed by the act. The construction given by the commission to certain fea tures and phrases of the law , and the suggestions made for the guidance of the railroads m certain circumstances , are presented with a clearness that leaves no excuse for misinterpretation. There can bo no doubt that the altitude now taken by the commission will have an excellent ollect. It certainly simplifies the situa tion nnd puts the law on the right basis , and this Is chiefly what has boon needed. Encouraging Lawlessness. Mr. MeShano's editor gracefully ad mit ? that ho was premature and incor rect in announcing that the police regu lation ordinance vetoed by Mayor Hroatch had boon passed over his head by a two-third vote of the city counclK That eminent expounder of municipal law still insists , however , that the police commission cannot legally oxcrciso its functions , and that Chief of Police Seavoy is a more usurper , because their respec tive bonds have not been approved by the city council. This is a delusion nnd a snare. The city charter docs not re quire n bond from members of the police commission or the chief of police as ono of the prerequisite qualifications before entering upon their respective ofTiclal duties. The only specific condition pre cedent that each of these ofllcials shall take and subscribe an oath to faithfully discharge his duties and tiio the sarnu with the city clerk. The council has the right under the charter to require any city ollicial to give bonds , and to fix the amount of such bonds in each case , but the council can not pass an ex-poat facto or back action ordinance that would all'oct the validity of the police commission or any ofliccr appointed by it. In other words , the council may sup plement the specific provisions of the charter by ordaining that certain oflicors who are not expressly required by the charter to give bonds for the faithful discharge of their duties , shall give a bond to fi9 approved by the council , but they cannot ordain that any oQicial who wa legally appointed aud installed into au. oflice before the passage of such an ordinance shall be suspended until after the council has seen tit to approve his ofiicial bond. Such legislation , would be retroactive and hcncQ unconstitutional. In view of the fact that each member of the com mission and the chief of police have tiled their bonds with the council , and thus have complied with the provisions of the new ordinance to the host of their ability , all talk about their ollicial action being illegal is mere twaddle. We should not deem it worth while to discuss this sub ject any further were it not for the de moralizing : effect of the lawless , mislead ing assertions which certain editors have made with aft evident design tooncourago insubordination in the police force and lawlessness among the dangerous classes who infest this community. IT seems to bo a question whether the enterprising liquor dealer of Augusta , Maine , who imported his liquors and. ex posed thorn for sale in the original pack ages , is so thoroughly protected by na tional statute that ho can carry on a re tail business regardless of the state law. It appears that similar cases were before the supreme court of the United States as far back as 1847 , when it was held that a state could not impose on an importer a license for dealing in goods he had im ported , since that would bo practically the imposition of an increased import duty , and would therefore be unconstitu tional. But Chief Justice Taney. by whom this yiew of the court was expressed ' pressed , also said that if any state , m the nxercise of its police powers , should deem the retail and internal trallic in ardent spirits injurious to its citizens , ho saw nothing , in thn con stitution * lo prevent its regulating or totally prohibiting it. But even if this opinion wore overturned the Augusta liquor dealer will find a restriction to re tail trade in the custom laws. The small est package of spirits in "cask allowed to bo brought into this country is fourteen gallons. The least quantity of wines or spirits permitted to ba imported in ono packaen is twelve bottles. Each cus tomer must consequently carry away at least a dozen bottles of brandy or fourteen gallons of rum or Irish whisky to como within the provisions of the law. Mean- whilu , however , the Augusta man is doing business at the old stand , and at last accounts the "original packages" were moving off with a briskness which showed they mot a long and largely felt want. AH OTHER vigorous effort will be made to secure from the uoxt congress the legislation necessary to give Alaska a territorial form of government. It ia be lieved by those who advocate it to bo the one thing necessary to give that region a boom , and about the only formidable op position cornea from tha Alaska Seal company , whoso monopoly might be in terfered with by a change. There is no longer a doubt that Alaska possesses mineral wealth , and those best informed express the belief tijat with encourage ment from the government it would be the great gold country of the world. There Is now on Douglass island whatis said to be the greatest cold mine nnd the most extensive milling establishment in the world. The soil and climate of south ern Alaska are remarkable , considering the latitude , the winters there fre quently uot bohijj as coldon the average , as here. The soil , says one who has made a study of It , is as good as that of Vermont and Now Hampshire , and al though Alaska will never be famous as a grain producing country , it can support millions of inhabitants with food. The land is not cultivated now at all , for the reason that the people are too busy with the more profitable industries of mining , lislnng and sealing. All provisions are carried up from the states , and very high prices ore paid for them. The arguments in favor of giving Alaska a territorial government are certainly substantial. THERE are some portions of the city very much in need of efficient sanitary treatment. If tbo officials charged with this duly will apply themselves with moderate diligence they will tind ample reward for their efforts in some locali ties in the northern part of tha city.

A Coniiollvc Cut-Off. Ootluenburg Indfpetulent. The Independent has repeatedly punished Mr. Itotliacker , the edltoi of the Omaha Ue- publlcnn , for his rowdy like behavior In using a slungshot against an unarmed man , who Incurred his displeasure ; ( or thu rowdy principles which he expressed In proclaiming that Mr. llichardsoi * of Lonp City , ought to have been killed because he Is a mugwump ; and for his lying attacks on Governor Tbay * r , who was of the sound opinion that a rowdy ought not to be appointed police com missioner of Omaha. The rowdy editor has not been able to defend himself , and seems to consider It a consolation for his suffering coat to quit exchanging with the Indepen dent * on whose table the Republican for some Uins baa not appeared. If tb Republican will quit exchanetng with all the papers whoso opinion about Itotliacker and the Republican ogreen with that of the indepen dent , the Republican will soon be without exchanges.

Pen Sketch of n Rising Power in the Flnair ancial World , WEALTH SHORN OF VANITY. Xhe Future llclr of Forty Millions nt Worn unit 1'lny Itcopcctod for UU Abilities , Industry and Modesty. A young mnn of about twenty-four years of age , live feet eight inches in height , with a rather swarthy complexion and jet blank eyes , says a Now York lot- UT.enters the great Western Union build ing every morning about 0 o'clock , ROCS up to the third story in the elevator , en ters his private office , throws off his coat and plunges into work. About 4 o'clock ho leaves the bulldiug.walxs down to the Battery and boards a steam yacht , which Immediately nails up the Hudson river , bound for Irvington , about twenty miles distant. Thu young man will ono day bo one of the great linnncial powers of this country. It Is Gcorgo G. Gould , ton of Jay Gould , whose fame is world-wide. Young Gould during the winter lives in Forty-seventh strcot , one door below his father's large double brownstone house , on the corner of Fifth avenue aud 1'orty- sevcnth strcot. lie aud his wife will upend the summer with the elder Gould at Irvington. Ho is identified with the Western Union telegraph company , the Pacitic mail steamship company , the Manhattan elevated railroad and the Missouri Pacitii ! . Missouri , Kansas & .Texas , loxas & Pacilio , St. Louis & Iron Mountain and other Gould roads. As is well known , ho has been married for about a year to a for mer actress , who madu some reputation on the stngo as a soubrctto. Young Gould is ; i sensible fellow , and this fact was Illustrated by a little incident on the dav of his wedding. Late on the ovout- fuf day the fact that ho was to bo < iuintly married at his father's mansion in Irvington - ton , became known in the city , and naturally the city editors , those journal istic generals who command the reportorial - torial corps , wore impressed with the im portance of the occasion , and they sant thuir reporters hero and there in a fran tic hunt for the news. Few thought it worth while to go up to Irvington , but ono bright young writer for a well known luminary decided that ho would draw truth from the fountain boad. Ar riving at Irvington , the pleasant town named after the genial author of the "Sketch Book. " ho nirod a barouche and told the driver to take him up to the residence of Mr. Gould , several miles distant. They had epne hardly moro than a mile when the driver , nodding in the direction of nn approaching equipage guy with jingling silver trappings and spirited horses , driven by a liveried coachman with a pompous little footman by his side , said : "Shurc , hero conies Mr. Gould now , sor. " "Wheel around , " said the reporter , "and don't let him beat you in gutting back to the depot. " The rcportorial turnout was not ono which a pen-on would be proud to show in Central park. The horses were angu lar In their appearance and scorned like embodied reminiscences of the seven years' famine in Egypt. But if they seemed to lack speed , appearances were deceptive , for they won I ho race to the depot by several lengths. Young Gould , ns it proved , had just been married and was starting on his wedding trip. VVhen he alighted and saw the reporter he looked rather surprised anil a little sheep ish. Such n Hairs are always unpleasant to newspaper men of ability and charac ter , whatever may bo the opinions of fat- witted snobs on the subject , and the young Writer in question of course had no wish to intrude upon a happy bride groom , though he had known him for several years. Ho hoped that thcro might be some opportunity of securing a few particulars of the event on the train going down to Now York from Mr. Gould himself , and thus avoid mistakes that would tend to make the whole all'uir ridiculous. But the future millionaire having secured his tickets came over to the newspaper roan , shook hands pleas antly , and in response to a few inquiries , and knowing he was talking to as thorough n gontlomau as himself , gave a- modest account of an affair in which the public were so much interested nnd which the newspapers were therefore compelled to notice , and it is of interest to add that the young millionaire after ward sent a loiter ut thanks to the news paper writer for the good taste in which his account of the event was vritten. The future heir to forty millions had what some of the wealthy cads and snobs of this and other parts of the country would not have had , namely , the good icnso to recognize the fact that bis father's prominence mudo the public interested in the son , and that a correct nnd modest account of the af fair was better than the mistake or ex aggerations that might result from a re fusal to sot tno newspapers right. "Make it modest , " was his only remark. This remark wita characturistic. There is nothing of the vain , pretentious snob about him. Many an idle young follow , heir to possibly a fiftieth part of this young man's , fortune , struts about with an insolent air , allccti the English starw , and generally makes himself ridic ulous , but George Gould is liked for his qtiiot , modest manners and respected for his abilities and industry , lie is a gradu ate of Cornell university and a member of the Union and Manhattan clubs. Ho relieves his father ol much of the routine work of the various Gould interests. Mrs. George Gould Is a patroness of govern ! well known chuntius and the young couple in time will doubtless become prominent in society. FORCE OF HABIT. Iis KflVct on llo.oiiHllllity For Human Action. Philadelphia Record : It is a nice ques tion how much the force of habit dulls thu edge of responsibility for human ac tion. The first time a thing is done there is a deh'nlto object anil a definite choice in thu doing , unless It bo acci dental. The next Line , the choice hav ing been previous determined , them is less thought about it ; and .still loss the next time , until thu movement its to both the body and the mind becomes largely mechanical. When a path is continual trodden our feet li-arn trio way ; s > o that wo go over It safely ami surely in the dark without the guitlo of the ayes. Unfortu nately , the habit of doing wrong things as well as right things grown uu&ior with every performance , ihe lirst cig.trettn sickens the smoker , the lirst debauch ills- gusts the debauchee ; the first theft wor ries thn conscience of the embezzler ; the lirst Iio carries with it the reproach of moral turpitude , liut thu habit smoothed over all. Indulgence overcomes ruling- nancu till the smoker rau.st hiivc his cigar ami tlio toper his cup. Thu thief .steals till justice overtaken him , und the liar lies until he ia almost duped into bolluv- ing himself by the facility of his inven tion. OKOWTII OF GOOD IIAllITs. Good habits grow upon the constant doer of goott actions with perhaps moro lusty readiness tiuin bail ones , for the rcuanu that they arc backed by an ap proving coiiBciennu. Wrong must Iio cultivated until the conscience is subdued , while virtue is said to bo iti own reward , So frugality , politeness , honesty , charity and cleanliness bccomo imbedded In out natures by long custom , "for , " ns Sliako spcaro has profoundly observed. Mis can almost change the stamp of nature , " A sim-ma STANDAIUI. The importance of first Impression ! mum the minds of young people and of early training nnd association have bcoti the thomnof teachers and moralists from the beginning. Train a child in the way ho should uo and ho will not depart from it. Tlioro is no doubt our way in the world is very largely shaped by the circumstances that hedge us around ; but there Is n curious incon- seqiiunco and irrationality nbout things that are somotlmos done from force of habit that nro .seldom taken into account In judging of the moral or phy sical results accomplished. For instance , when ono dim his mttcilngo brush into his ink-stand , how far 1.1 ho accountable for n disaster which ho did not Intend to bring ont Yet people- with full-grown and robust habits nro forever dipping mucilage brushes into ink-bottles for ever unconsciously thrusting into unac customed placot ) incongruous thoughts und unconsidered action * . If the wrong doer must be judged by the quality of the thing done , and not by the incitement or the moral purpose of i.is action , how is it with the Nlcoilomtiacs who have always lived up to the letter of the law. If habi tual wickedness bo no palll.ition for of- fcnso , does not habitual righteousness lessen the pralscworthlnc of good dcedsT If constant blood-lotting make it easier for a butcher to kill a man , docs not constant bcnovolonco make it less commendable for a giver to glvo ? If the wrong bu done with less compunction in the ono co.su the charity Is rou dorcd with the loss hesitation in the other. _ CHK.VTURKS OF IIAllIT. Our habits , moral and physical , pcihnns run on , and in our children take the Hhnpo and name heredity. It is .1 well-settled behof that there Is as much In the blood of humans ns in the blood of horses or dogs. A Buffalo newspaper declares that the buttons that are still worn on the back of men's coats are there because asod ; sgo they wuro put there to sustain the sword bolt , and a Rochester editor insists that docs always turn round and round bcforo they lie down because the original dogs lu that way beat down a coiufortablo place in the original grass , which , according to Genesis , waa made before the dogs wore. It would bo well to bring to thu consideration of the faults nnd foibles , as well as thu misdocds , of mankind a little of the careful generaliza tion by which it is sought to account for unnecessary buttons and the premonitory movements of sleepy dogs.
