THE HER hns no disposition to rusl Into the county campaign at this curli day.Vhon the primaries anil convon" tions are called it will bo hoard Iron With no uncertain sound. THE late rains on the western catlli ranches have renewed the growth of graa nnd the cattle which have been in pooi condition all summer are beginning tc grow fat. The outlook now is that the 'season will close with bettor prices ant bettor beef. THE mysterious island on which tin slugging match was fought Sunday i : represented as being in Iowa by thi sporting daily , and prize-fighting In lows is said to be only a misdemeanor. If tin is true , why don't the sluggers mak < their headquarters in Iowa nnd giye Nc braska a wide berth ? IT becomes more nnd more eviden every day that the whites nnd not tin Utes were to blame for the Colorado out break. It is a disgrace to the authorities of Colorado to allow Its citizens to cxas ponito the Indians and then attempt ti Work up public sentiment in favor of ex terminating them. In the light of latoi events Governor Adams' call for govern- piont troops appears more ridiculous and absurd than it did at first. DURING the last year , the watei works of Chicago supplied nn av crago in round numbers of 98,000,0M gallons per day.

This is suggestive. Mu. CAUIT : TAYLOR 1 altogether toe previous in his attempt to provoke i pplit in the republican ranks of ihii county.

ONE of the coal barons at Mauol Chunk , Pennsylvania , In a discussion o jstrikcs with his follow robbers not Ion/ / pinco , is reported to huvo said , spoakin ; of the minors : "Keep 'cm half starved tThon they'll never strike. I have trice It and it works like hell. " Thispictur Bsqtii ) language docs not advocate an ; now condition , huwovor. The minors o Pennsylvania and workingmen in thi employ of grinding monopolies in man ; imrts of the union , have long been kop In this half-starved condition so favor nblo to submission. When , however flesh and blood could endure this n < longer and revolts have taken place , th famished miners have been driven awa , to make place for still cheaper laborers In this way the coal kings have bccom inillioiiaircs. IK a Into dispatch from southwesten plissouri is true , the Iron Mountain rail road has badly overreached itself in it attempts to get possession of the earth lany years ago a man named Millei purchased a largo tract of laud from thi company mentioned , which ho occuple for years without molestation , llecentl the railroad magnates tried to eject Inn from his holdlugs. Miller wrote to th president explaining the circumstance of thn purchase and in duo time a : answer was received advising him to retain tain possession of the lands at all hazard It was further stated that the Iron Mour tain railroad company had forfoitc tholr rights to all the lands original ! granted them by reason of unfullille contracts with the government. Thi news is spreading rapidly , and scttlei are now rushing down into southwcstor Missouri in great numbers and settlin upon the forfeited lands. It la but seldot that poetic justice like this is meted 01 to greedy and soul loss corporations , an H is a. pleasure to note the Innovatioi Lot.lt spread until all-the railroads whic till hold tracts of land .under unfultille contracts are compelled to give them u ' for the benefit of the aettlor. Becoming Americana , Shortly after the celebration of the queen's jubilee by the subjects of Great Britain residing in Boston , a largo num ber of them , admonished by the public comment on the fact that they remained aliens while enjoying all the practical advantages of citizens of the United States , decided to abandon their allegiance - gianco to the queen and become Ameri can citizens. It was developed that there were several thousand in Boston , chiefly Englishmen , who had lived there for longer or shorter periods and were gen erally prosperous , who had never ser iously thought of making a change ol citizenship. When the obvious impropriety prioty of continuing in that way was pointed out to them , however , thn largo majority of them promptly admitted It , and many of them at once took the Initial stop to become oltizous of this country The example has had its effect in othoi cities. The British residents of Cleveland land , O , , have become interested in the matter , and it is reported from Chicagc that a naturalization movement ha : sprung up among the English , Scotch nnd Canadian elements ot that olty. II is estimated the number of these people in Chicago Is fully 50,000 , half of those being Canadians. There are more than twelve thousand males of voting age , and of these the highest estimate of the num ber naturalized is about four thousand , Hence there are m Cnlcngo botwcer eight and nine thousand English , Scotcl and Canadians who have resided then long enough to have become citizens o ; the United States , but who have no availed themselves of the opportunity. It is quite probable that this movement will become general among the English and Scotch residents of the United States who are still unnaturalizcd. . and who intend to remain hero. Thoj can hardly fall to bo impressed by the example of their countrymen in Bostot nnd elsewhere of the Impropriety , to saj the least , of remaining aliens while claim ing nnd enjoying all the advantages ol citizenship except political rights , anc the most intelligent of them must sec that to do so will in time subject them tc just reproach. It is a fact that while all other nationalities make hasteto obtair citizenship in the United States aftci coming bore , the English and Scotch an extremely reluctant to abandon thcii allegiance to- the British government and it is rarely that one ii found who does not hold tenaciously to his prejudices in favor ol that government. This la a form of hos tility which Americans are disposed tc regard as essentially ungenerous and un fair , and which they naturally resent , one effect of which is to keep alive here an unfriendly fooling toward England But if sentiment shall have no effect in making citizens of these aliens , pohcj will undoubtedly induce most of them tc become such. The general tendency tc enact laws affecting the property right ! of persons not citizens will certain ! } operate as a very strong incentive to nl aliens having or seeking to acquire prop crty in this country to make theraselvei secure against all contingencies by becoming - coming citizens. It is unquestionably the Ameri can policy that every man wh < comes to this country to roraai nshall for swear all allegiance to the country fron which ho carne and accept all the righb and obligations of American citizenship It is desirable that all who come htre t < stay shall assimilate themselves to oui political system , identifying themsolve : with us both in sentiment and interest Only in this way can we have a homogeneous genoous population , united in sympathy aims and aspirations. The Railroads Get The Profits. The situation of the beef market is i matter in which everybody has an in terest. The investigation and discnssioi of the subject now in progress ought t < result in accurate information regarding the course which have produced a partia demoralization of the cattle business , at explanation of the reason why the con sumcr tins continued to pay a high prici for beef while cattle depreciated to fig urcs which left no profit for the stock men , nnd an ascertainment of who hav < reaped the largest benefits. Ono fact ii established , and is that the consumers o the country at largo have not found thei , roasts nnd t > tcaks cheapening in prici with the docllno of cuttle. The butch ers have maintained their charges re gardless of what the stockmen wen compelled to accept , meeting every sug gostiou of a reduction with the assuranci that they had to pay just as much as eve for desirable meat. It is equally ccrtaii that for a considerable time the cuttli raisers have not been making money. Fc a year past they have been engaged n efforts to devise plans for improving tboi position nnd for mutual protection , am it is only now that they are beginning t see a promise of more favorable condi tions. It has been suspected and charged thn the dressed beef interest was making al the money. A great deal has bean writ ten about the ring controlling this trad with respect to its unfair minipulnllon o the market , its unlawful compact wit ! railroads , and ita unjust and des potie treatment of the cattle men In reply to all this Mr. P. B Armour says that the whole troubl comes from ovor-produotlon , and tha the idea of monopoly and the trcmondou profits of the dressed beef men Is absurd The business is open to anybody wh may wish to go into it. This statoinon of the case may not be entirely convinc ing , but it comes from very high author ity.jind the inquirer must perforce lool elsewhere in the efforts to find where tin profits go. The best evidence at hani shows that the railroads get the largcs share of them. Mr. Armour says the , get nioro out of the cattle business tha anybody else , and a bettor return tha : for any other olass of 'business they dc The Chicago Tribune , which has bee giving very careful Investigation to thi subject , points out that it is the rail roads that are really getting about allth advantages from the cattle business. Be fore the Inter-state commerce law wen into eftcct the railroad * charged 65 cent a hundred to ship beef to Now York am gave a rebate of 20 cents. There ha been no change in the rate , but now th railroads keep the whole of It. The 3 cents that was in other years the profi of the dressed beet men should in fair ness now go to the consumers , but-in stead It swells the coffers of the railro.-v companies. 'Tho question whether1 th present rate is not unreasonable in yic\ of the /act that in past years the railroad were satisfied with-2Q cents loss is. to b passed upon by the Intcr-stato commerce commission , but it is questionable whether there is In this any hope for the consumers. The Interstate commerce law destroyed the compact between the dressed beef ring nnd the railroads , thereby materially reducing the profits nnd lessoning the mischievous power of the former , but these results have boon no advantage to the consumers , for the reason that what the ring lost tha railroads gained , The dressed beef men are now engaged in a conflict with the railroads from which the general public may ultimately reap some benefits , but this cannot bo re garded as assured. The fact Is , that un less the existing dressed beef monopoly Is utterly broken , and the railroads brought to such rates as their past course has shown to be.satlsfactorlly profitable to them , no very material relief can bo expected for either the cattle men or the consumers of beef. la the Interest of Money Lender * . When the legislature last wlutorjpassod the bill which prohibits non-resideni aliens from acquiring or holding real es tate in Nebraska , nobody imagined that this bill was an ingenious scheme to put money Into the pockets of Nebraska money-lenders. On its face the bill wag directed against the foreign land barons , nnd intended to prevent their monopoliz ing Inrgc tracts of land , either directly or through foreign syndicates. Incident ally the acquisition of real estate in this state by non-resident alien liolrs was In cluded in the prohibition. Upon close inspection , the bill also contains a proviso which lias the cfl'cct of shutting out all foreign capital in the shape of loans and mortgages. In a let- just received at this ollice from n bank ing firm , which 1m its chief source ol money supply In .London's Wall street our now law is quoted as a bar to any mortgage investments by foreign capital ists. The following extract from this letter explains itself : By an act passed by the last session of the lectslature wo are are now prohibited from loaning money on real estate In the state of Nebraska. The act Is known as the alien land law , approved march 31st , 1887 , and is clearly meant to prohibit land holdings by foreigners , but could hardly be Intended to stop foreigners from loanlnt money In the slate. Yet It does so In the following clause : "No nonresident dent alien shall hereafter acquire or holU any real estate or Interest therein In the state of Nebraska , by purchase , devise or descent , " There being a conveyance In the mortgage deed , It Is clearly an Interest in the real es tate conveyed by It. Wo are In hope that at the next session of the legislature an act will bo passed exemptlmt real estate covered by mortgage from the operation ol the act , and In case of foreclosure an allow ance of three years time to sell It. We shall esteem it n faror If at some time you will call the attention of the public to the act with a view to the repeal ot the ob noxious part of It , ot course provided that It Is not contrary to your own ideas. We certainly shall favor the amend ment suggested. It is in the interest of the great mass of our people , who are money borrowers. They would profit by the compction of foreign capital. The intent of the law makers doubtless was to prohibit foreign landlordism , not to create a monopoly for homo money lenders. But wo sus' poet'that some of the parties who on' gineercd this bill had full knowledge ol its scope. There were a good many 2C percent per month members in the last legislature. An Infamoao Doclnlon. Dispatches from San Francisco an nounce a decision by Justice Field , of the United States supreme court , deny ing the right of the Paoih'o railroad in vestigating committee to compel Leland Stanford to answer certain questions in volving the corrupt use ot money in in fluencing legislation. This decision will surprise nobody. Justice Field always has been a rank monopolist on the bench and in his decisions always aided with corporations as against the government or the people. Moreover , the Central Pacific railroad cormorants have always had the active and shameless support of Justice Field through thick and tnin , It was perfectly natural for this rail road judge to interpose his an- thority in the circuit bench of California , in behalf of the Central Pacific boodlers , who have defiantly refused to account foi millions of money which has been im properly expended by them m thwarting national and state legislation and in ad < vancing their private interests to the detriment trimont of their patrons and the govern ment. The text of Justice Field's opinion is made as plausible as a man who rides across the continent in special palace can at the expense of the Pacific roads coulv possibly make it. The country wil put Its iron interpretation upoi this infamous obstruction of the legitimate mate functions of the Pacific railroar commission. Stanford , Crocker anc Huntingtou may withhold their criminn secrets from the commission , but congress gross , if it does its duty , will compel them to answer before a committee of its own members with which no railroad judge will dare interfere. Undervaluation of Bulldlnga. In computing the public improvement : of Omaha for the present year Secretary Naltinger , of the board of trade , quote ; the estimated costs of buildings for whicl permits have been given for the first si > months of the present year , us nggregat ing 12,708,075. These figures are decid edly misleading. They were , of course , taken from the building Inspector's ro cord.but that record is practically worth less excepting as to the number and character of buildings under construe Uon. In the first place , common experience has taught that the estimates of architects of the probable cost of buildings fall all the way from 10 to 25 per cent below the actual cost by the time the buildings art completed. In the next place , our build ing ordinance compels undervaluation Instead of charging a nominal fee for i permit to erect a building in the city lim its , the stupid building ordinance now it force imposes a high-license tax ot everybody who has the enterprise to In vest in building Improvements. The rat ( is graduated by the cost of the building as if it were damaging to Omaha for an ] citizen to invest extensively in brick nnd mortar. The more substantial nnd ex tensive the building the higher the per mit to build. For every building costing over | 5,003 ono dollar is charged , so thai the owner of a block which would cos ) $500,000 Is taxed $350 for a permit.to im proyo'tho property ofall , his neighbor ; and addto the' real estate- value 'of 'the whole city and Insure a permanent tax income to the city as long as the block stands. And yet " _ the actual cost to the olty "for the so-called inspection of such a bloce Is no greater than that of the live-story tinder boxes that stand near the Gettysburg panoramn building. ) The natural result of such n policy is undervaluation of every building that costs over $5,000 in procuring the build ing permit. The.Accord of the building inspector as a'basis''fcom which to com pute the actual coft of building improve ments in Omaha if fictitious and utterly worthless. Besides being unreliable , II dots great harm to the city in advertis ing to the world that our improvements cost so much less than is actually ex pended. A striking illustration in point Is the pamphlet just Issued by the board ol trade , which prints as olllclal the worth less estimates ot the building Inspector record , The proper remedy should bo ap piled by the council without delay. The oflico of building Inspector was nol created for speculative purposes , nor it it desirable that an embargo shall bo laid upon enterprise. A tax of two dollars foi a permit to build a dwelling or storehouse costing less than $3,000 would bo sufficient nnd from three to ten dollars for buildings that cost moro than $3,000 would yield enough revenue to cover the expenses ol the inspector's ofiico. Wo wnnt an honest building record 01 else the inspectorship might as well be abolished. As long as the present syS' torn of high license on building enter prise prevails , the estimates will remain a sham and a delusion. It is safe to add at least GO per cent to the estimated cost of building under con struction as reported to the inspector sc long as the present ordinance remains Ir force. THE manufacturers of agricultural im ploraonts have garnered a rich harvest from the farmers of Nebraska nnd tribu tary territory for years. So great ha ; become the volume of this trafllc that the manufacturers have found it expedient and necessary to build and maintain great warehouses and depots for the storage and handling of their goods in Omaha. They have made money whet crops were short , and have amassed for tunes in a single year following a gener ally fnll crop in Nebraska. In view of tlu magnitude of the implement trafllc and the heavy demand for farm machin cry which must always continue in this great granary of America , it is strange that up to this llmno effort has been made on a IP rgo sdale to manufacture implements in Nebraska. The field is certainly as promising as it was in 111 ! nois years ago , anoj as it is In Iowa now THE pretended indignation which tin Herald suddenly manifests over the con vict labor contract is insincere and hypo critical. The palpable motive is a ranli clous desire to abuse Governor Thaye : because he failed to recognize the fitnesi of the editor for a position on the polloi commission. Had TJjayor made that appointment pointmont ho would nave been the bcs of governors in thji eyes of the dis gruutled editor.

The Cass county jail , at 1'lattsraoutb , came near being emptied of its prisoners Sunday night , and but for the valor ol Jailor Malick and Night Watchman Gapen , there would have bcon a whole sale jail delivery.

Sunday night lie was sweeping out the corridoi when Malick entered , and pulling the re volver on the jailor , commanded him tc throw up his hands. This Malick refused to do , and a second Inter Knight shot al him. They were standing within arm's length of each other , and it is almost miraculous that the ball did not take effect. Knight evidently shot at Maltck's head , as the ball Hew close to his right cheek und ttic powder burned his face. Before Knight could shoot again ho was tired upon by the night watchman , lie miascd his aim but the ball passed so close to Knight'l temple that it knocked him down.

The officers succeeded in disarming the prisoners ami returning them to the corridor , thus end ing the exciting little episode. Dakota.
