K\ dontly Gilbert & Sullivan did not stroU a point when they manufactured the ' lord high executioner. n lid Protection and Imbor. ' Those people who advocate the policy of.protection on the ground that it is In ( lie intdrost of labor either are not ade quately Informed as to the facts' regard ing the situation of labor or wilfully ig nore thorn.'In the first piano the labor , employed In ilin' protected Industries U only a'very small percontugo of the .total lubor of the country , so that if the policy did secure any direct and positive bcno' Utt to labor , thny would bo enjoyed by. n comparatively few , to improve whose condition the great majority would pay tribute ta protection. 'It is shown , how ever , by the figures of the census , and these can bo verified without very great effort ; , that labor in , the protected Industries , taking the entire range of wages , is not so well paid a : that which is not protected. Carpenters , bricklayers , furniture makers , for exam ple , receive a bettor average of wages than workers in iron and steel , and in woolen and cotton mills , .This wat true seven years ago when the census was taken and has been true ovci since. Nothing Is more clearly es tablished , and the evidence can bo found in abundance , that what can alone prop erly bo called protected labor is , so far iu the vital matter of wages is concerned really.not protected ao all , but iu worse off than other labor which can fairly be compared with it. How is it with reference U the claim that the protcctlor policy gives employment to labor _ During the past ton or twelve years , will the exception of perhaps three of cxccp tional general prosperity , the number o workingmen in enforced idleness in tin country has ranged between one ant three millions. Ten years ago the csti mate was of the latter amount , and dur ing the past twelve months of grca activity and prosperity the number if believed not to have fallen below thi former amount. Another very import ant fact to bo considered is that most o the protected industries do not keep thcii work-people employed more than three fourths of the time. According to th < last report of the Pennsylvania bureau o statistics , out of the ninety-eight chic industries enumerated only twenty-nim kept their men employed 300 days. Tin coal industry , which occupied nearly one third of all the laborers of the state , ken them employed less than 200 days. Oiv industry kent them only 133 days , cm ploying on the average 11,000 laborers Woolen goods , employing 7,000 laborers Kept them busy only 250 days. Uollinj mills , employing 3:3,000 : , could find worl for them only 230 days. A similar result or perhaps one even less favorable , wouli bo found by an investigation of the sit nation in other states , whose Industrie are most largely under the ajgis of pro tection. Nor docs the policy of prolec tion conduce to the peac and contentment of labor. I has never exhibited'greater unrest thai during the past two years , and it will probably bo found when the record i made up that the present year has beei without a parallel in the industrial his tory of the country in the number am extent of labor disturbances. Hvery wheri workingmen , largely of the class allogcc to be protected , have been struggling tt maintain or improve their wages. Uis content has been general , and a groa deal still abounds. This labor has amp ! reason to know that the protected capi tal has prospered , but it justly complain that it has not shared m the benefits o the system. It is seeking its own way o rcdross in organization , social and polit leal , and promises to urge its demand with considerable force. Protectionists may ignore but the ; cannot put down the faets which conful their false claim that labor is protectci by protection. ThO'Unansworablo argument mont of the figures is that the pohc , ewes no benefit in wages to labor , th unprotected faring better than the prc tccted , while of both it makes an exac tion which is but so much tribute to th monopolies , which are the real and th only gainers from protection. JACK DUDOSE , who was recently ni rested on suspicion of murdering tin Woolfolk family at Canton , Georgia , i said to have confessed his guilt. It wil bo remembered that Tom WoolfolK , th only member of the family who escaped was suspected of being the murdorei and at once taken into custody. The in furiated neighbors were determined t < lynch him , and his neck was only save by the strenuous efforts of the coole heads. Tom's wits appear to bo som < what befogged , and being obstinate als < ho could not bo induced t say much about the trap edy , and this reticence wn construed Into an evidence ot guilt II claimed , however , that the murder ha been committed by negroes , and that b had escaped by jumping through n win dow. Doboso's confession confirms th ! story. Since the massacre there lias bee a great deal of comment over youn Woolfolk's inhuman depravity , but th sequel shows that those who judged 1m so severely have done him agreat wronj and that the would-be avengers cam near committing a fearful crime. Agai and again innocent persons have bee lynched. It is time that this relic of bat barism wnro more generally discout tonanccd by public opinion than U i and so done away with. The condition under which this rude form of justic arose no longer exist , and there is n necessity for iVs conttnnanco. The II : of its innocent victims Is a long one an u blot upon our history. ' A 1'nlntcd The democrats of Massachusetts U not cut so largo a figure in. political ca dilations as do those of some otlior.staU ! heuco no very great .significance is give their utterances. ' Truothere , have boo two democratic victories in the state in tl : last ten years , ahd'it cannot'be consid orcd impossible that there , should be ai 'other'bnt no one. seriously expects i and with this feeling general , Mrtssaclu eutts democracy Commands only , a pas ing attention. Fpr a year or , two thei has been a' good deal of dlsailtction i the party administration and auti-admii istratiou elements , and some of it still e : iststhough the organization la probably i somewhat bettor shape now thnn it wn ayer.r'11 0. There is a very ; largo prc portion of .Massachusetts- democrat however-who arc too heartily hostile-I civil service reform ever to feel very col dial toward the administration so lohg' > it 'professes devotion to that Dolicy. .Tho platform adopted at the late coi Tendon was clearly an. effort tongatbl roth elements in the party nnd smooth > vcr factional differences with respect : o .tho administration. Therefore the usual complimentary references were made .as to'honesty In'carrying out promises and pledges , nnd so on. Bui Ihcro was ono pointed .suggestion whlct showed that the clement which has not had the car nnd favor of the administration required to bo placated. Federal ofll- 3ials In Massachusetts have not been able to keep their hands out of politics , nnd their interference has been especially of- Pensive to the unrecognized wing ot the party. A plank in the platform reads that "no ofllcor should bo retained In the public service who has shown himscll an offensive partisan , nnd wo think that a sense of propriety to the administra tion of which these arc n part requires federal ofllco holders representing the administration in.this state to discharge from the public service any of the subor dinates against whom charges of offen sive partisanship can bo substan tiated. " There Is 'of course m sincerity in tins as an avowal o principle. The average Massa chusctts democrat , In common with tin average democrat everywhere , doesn'l believe that any olllcoholdor should havi his political rights curtailed. It is si in ply n warning to the fellows who have got the best of it in the favor of the ad ministration that they must be satisliud with what they Imvo and leave the man inulation of state politics to those win are not recognized at Washington. I remains to be seen how far the pointo < admonition will bo respected. IT is an unpleasant and delicate last for an editor to make n graceful Hop ot any question , and especially onn which has boon hotly contested and strongly supported. Yet when a flop is made ou of respect to the demands of a growing public sentiment it is to say the leasi commendable in any ono to acknowledge the error of his way and fall in with UN majority. Mr. McShane's change ol heart upon the policy of police starvation by the council will meet the approval o nine-tenths of the readers of his paper And it is refreshing to see that shoot giv < expression at this late day to n little com icon sense in the discussion of the polici question. Its advice to the council ti nay the starved policemen is qvidcntl ; forced by the recent movement inatigur atcd in this city by business men to allbn substantial relief to the policemen legall ; appointed , but unrecognized by the council. When the taxpayers of an ; community unitedly back their sentiments ments upon public policy with opci purses , it is enough to set the Oupositioi to thinking. There is absolutely no excuse cuso for the stubborn and illegal actioi of the council with reference to th police , and the pcoplo are determine ) that the cotincilmcn shall not ride rough shod over the wishes of tl.o.so who clcctci them. A JUDICIOUS nnd practicable plan for i public market , that shall bo free from al handicapping conditions , will not lack i very general and hearty support Suel a project is so strongly commended b ; every consideration affecting the inter ests of a largo majority of the people that they need only to bo presented ti unprejudiced attention to secure favo for the project. There is no other wa ; that can bo quite BO effective in solving the problem of cheaper living for th masses of Omaha's population , a matte that has a very important bearing upoi the future progress of thi city , nnd particularly upon th position it shall take as ; manufacturing centre. The danger to bi avoided is ono common to the inreptioi of such enterprises , and that is a ninltl tudo of chimerical and impracticabl schemes in the confusion of which th object sought will bo tossed about hopelessly lossly for an indefinite time. It is an entirely tiroly practical matter about which thcr is nothing experimental. The value o such an institution to a community am also as a source of municipal revenue ha been amply demonstrated by the experience enco of other cities. There is not th slightest reason why this oxporienc should not bo repeated in Omaha. THK council did well in putting uchec upon the over-zealous enterprise of th street railroad constructors which ex hibits itself in tearing up the streets a their pleasure , regardless of time or put lie convenience. The restrictions m posed upon these parties by the resoli tlons adopted by the council on Tucsda evening , as well as the requirements di mandod of them in the prosecution c their work , are entirely reasonable an should bo enforced. The pcoplo will we come the completion of these improve ments , which assure ampler facilities an more expeditious travel , but there doe not appear to bo any rcaso why they should be asked t maUo the sacrifice of every convenionc to themselves in order that the corpora tious may carry on the work wholly wit reference to their own convenience an advantage. The franchises are very va uablo , and thu companies can very we afford to conduct their operations so tlir the public shall suffer thu least possibl annoyance or inconvenienceeven tboug in so doing they will have to somcwlu increase their outlay. THK predictions of a coal famine I one of the robber coal barons , shows tin the grinding monopoly has not boon coi spiring and plotting against the public i vain. That they now try to throw tli odium of the high prlco of coal upon th iuter-stalo commerce bill iho ws that tiiet IE ) no limit to their brazen audacity and n sense of moral shame left in them. Tl scarcity of coal , if it exists as stated , an the high and still rising prices have a been brought about by the coal monop < lies. There can bo no question abet that. The coal is there , the men and tl means for producing it arc at hand , an nothing but the conspiracy of the coi highwaymen can keep 'it locked up i the mines.If such wide-spread distres Is experienced as is1 now ' threatened , a outraged public may rise In its might an crivc tlm monopolists a lesson which the will not soon forget. . - Tim streets of the city were nuvor bi fore- quite so .badly torn up as they a'ro i present , and unless more vigor is shpw than'Is customary in putting them'int condition''tho winter , will'come wit numerous almost impassable places i the thoroughfares that must remain tit cared for until spring , to . the great di tress'of pedestrians .and the 'hardship * travel generally.

THAT was n terrible accident which happened to the workingmen in Lincolt who became entangled In the telephone wires. It has long been demonstrated that there is great danger in the crossing and recrossing of so many wires charged with strong currents of electricity. St long ns they nro allowed above ground greater care should bo taken to gnart against accidents , and the time seems tc have come when it is necessary for cacli city to enact prccautionaay laws in rela tion to the elr.ctric light and other wires for the welfare ot its cltUons. ATTENTION of interested parties ia called to the manner jn which the vari ous street railways pave between tin rails at crossings. Instead of using tin hard granite blocks , a flat sand or othui stone should bo put in wherever a cross walk is found. This rule should be madi to apply to the old as well as the new companies , and 11 should bo strictly en forced. The board of public work : should order the grttnito blocks to bo re placed with flat stones wherever a ca line crosses a paved street.

The Career of Ourajr'a Widow. Denver Republican : Among the squaws Accompanying Colorow in hi ; peripatetic journoyings about the White river country is Chipeta , the wife of the lamented On ray , the Into head chief ol the Ute nation. The career of this woman is beyond anything yet written ; even Fonimoro Cooper , in his description ol aboriginal life , falls far short of anything like it in his character sketches. Follow ing Ouray's election to the chieftainship , thu first official act he was united upon ta consider was the advisability of a re moval of his tribe from the mountains ol Colorado to Utah , and in connection with a proposed treaty between the United States and thu Utu nation lie was sum moned to Washington. On his trip he was accompanied by his wife. 15oth hn nnd Chiputa had in a measure adopted the dress of civilized life. They owned tluur own ranch , their herds fed upon their own pastures , and in essentials lived ns white people nnd enjoyed thocoinfoits of civili/.ed liie. These facts preceded thn chief and his consort to Washington , and with all the romance of their moun tain lifo clinging about them , added In the heritage of an ancient and warlike lineage , tnoy were received with open arms by the high social circles of the capital city. Everywhere Ihu.y were feted and the doors of the mansions in thu West End swung inward at their ap proach. Chipotn was idoli/c.d. She was clothed in silk , hur raiment was tlm fancy of the bust eastern dressmakers and the tn\vdj finery associated with u life of savagery was conspicuous by its nbsmicu. The ii- lustrdtcit journal took the cue HIM ! the wife oj Ouray became labelled through out thu breadth of thu land by thu pencil of special artists. She was thu rage foi the season shu was in Washington and the epistolary correspondence from at taches of tlm English legation to tin court journals at London referred to hoi us a "Modern Princess. " and bespoke foi her a hearty reception from thu peeraac of Kngl'ind should she visit that country , which she at that timu actually contum plated. As souvenirs of hur visit -tr Washington , Clupota carried away will : tier miantillus of silver plates a portion of which was presented to hur by the Government through thu interior depart ment , Shortly after his visit to Washington and the conisummatiun of thu treaty Ouray died , Ho was sincerely mourned by his people , and ns nn Indication of thnir criof. nnd in conformity with lone- cstabllshvil custom , the horses of the dead man were led up to the grave nnd ono by ono shot. All that was valuable in earthly oxlstanco was to accompany him to the happy hunting grounds of his race all but Chipeta ; nnd she too , would probably bavo accompanied her llcgo lord had she lived a con pie of cen- tnrlo.s ago. As it was the custom of her tribe , by the greatness of her exalted position , condemned her to a life of per petual widowhood. Any deviation from this unwritten law would draw upon her head the maledictions of the entire nation and she weald become an outcast , n pariah among her people. Hut Chipeta had n will of her own. She had tasted ot the prlvclegus which her Caucasian sisterhood enjoyeU , and when the opportunity occurred to marry n handsome buck she did so , not stopping to consider the great fall thereby in the i ; social scale. As might have been ox- pcctcd , the head men of the nation , with unanimity nud dcoison , condemned both her nnd her husband to ostracism. They had both violated a sacred law of social government they must sillier. With her now alliance she turned her back upon civilized lifo in every form. Hur.sllks nnd satins were discarded , and oven her plate was molted down to make gewgaws for her husband's friends , llui stock was taken from her nnd reverse followed reverse tilt she wa < absolutely forced beyond the line nf tribal kinship , nnd she with her husband became a wanderer. This , doubtless , was hurried by the un fortunate mistake which she made in locating a ranch on thu new reservation , It was an excellent slto. There was plenty of water , and bulfalo.niesqult and gramma grasses gave nourishment to the stock. When the lines were made divid ing Utah from Colorado it was found that Clupota's ranch was on the wrong side ol the line , and not in the reservation. It became , therefore , legitimate plunder for the settlers , who lost no time in di viding the spoils. * Like the renegade of hur tribe. Cninota in her wanderings tended to the White river country. There at least she would be welcomed nnd some respect paid to her tnllen greatness. She and her hns- husband joined'Colorow , and are now with him environed by the military forces which the governor has despatched for protection of the settlers of Garlleld county. Telegraphic advices say that so mo apprehension is felt for Chipeta's safety. She was in n tent which was fired by Sheriff Kendall's party on their first visit to the Indian camp , and she has not been seen since. It is not nt all likely that she has bcon harmed , she has bcon com pelled lo practically take to the bushes. Chipeta is growing' old. Shu must bo in thu neighborhood of fifty. Colorow was once her enomy.as ho was the enemy of the peace-loving Ouray ; but when her white friends turned on hur she sought straits in lifo where she could find friends. It is not now believed that she entertains a warlike spirit toward thu whites , but , being with Colorow , she is in bad com pany. One'O the queen of the nation , who is now leading the lifo of a common squaw. THE "ROBINSON MEDAL. " A Tribute to the Brnvo Mnn Wlio Saved Mr. Sownrd'n Lire. NVashington Critic : In ono of the exhi bition cases near in tluinorthurn entrance to thu National museum , ana a fuw paces from the cases containing the Grant rulics , is n bron/.n medal some four or five inches in diameter , which is : i copy of a gold nicdiil that by votu of the American congress was awarded to the man who heroically saved thu life of Hon. William H. Suward from the hand of the assassin on the day and at the same hour when President Lincoln , in Font's thea tre , on Tenth street , fell beneath the miscreant's bullet. As many objects of universal interest acquire their brilliancy and lustre from their association with men and women of other days , who have been famous for something or other , so this bit of bronze , to casual glance similar to hundreds of other bronxo medals on exhibition , becomes - comes an object of special notice by rea son of the event it commemorates. The obverse of the medal has a fine profile liguru of Secretary Sowaul , the work being finely executed , circled around which uio the words : To ( icprge P. Hohlnson. Awarded by the Congress of the United States , March 1,1871. Across the face of the modal in hori zontal lines , both on the right and left sides of the portrait , is this inscription : For his heroic conduct on the 14th day of April. IbO-'i , In saving the lifo of thu Honorable Win. 11. Howard , then Secretary of State of the United States. The reverse contains a realistic sccno of tiiu desperate encounter between Rob inson and Paine , or Powell , the assassin , thu knifu being visible in the latier'a hand ; while in the background , upon the bed , laytho form ot the wounded and half murdered secretary. There is no inscription upon the reverse of the medal , except the name of thodesigccr. "O. W. Coffin , des , " and the word "PaquotF. " Secretary So ward at this time occupied the fine old mansion on Fifteen-and-a- half street , the east side of Lafayette Square , which is still standing. It waa occupied as a club house for many years previous to its occupancy by Secretary So ward , and it was in front of its door that General Daniel . Sickles in 18,19' shot and killed Phillip liarton Key. The details of thu affair will bo remembered by the older residents of Washington , ns well as thu excitement attending his trial in the District court house and his ac quittal. How t'cmosrn-stninpi Are Mode. Summervillo Journal : In prlntingsteel- plates are used , on which two hundred stamps are engraved. The mun are kept nl work covering thorn wit1' lie colored inks and passing thum to a man and a girl , who nro eaually busy at printing thum with lanro. roll ing hand presses. Three ot these little squads nro employed all the time , although ten presses can bo put into usu in CIHO : of necessity. After the small shoots of paper upon which the two hundred stamps arc engraved have dried eno'igh they are sent into another room nnd gummed. Thn gum used for this purpo.su is n peculiar composition made of ttiu powder of potatoes and other vegetables , mixed with water , which is bolter than any other material , for in stance , gumarabic , which cracks the paper baulv. This paper is also of n pu- cuimr tuxturn , sornowlntt similar to thai ot bank notes. After having ugain , neon dried , this timu on littlu racks which nro fanned by steam powur for about an hour , they are put in luitwcon shouts of pasteboard and pressed in hy draulic presses capable of applyiing a weight of two thousand tons. The next thing is to cut thu sheets in halvus ; cneli fthui't , of course , when cut contains a hundred stani)3. | They are then passed to two oilier squads , who , in as many operations , perforate the shouts between the stamps. Nnxt , limy are pressed oneo more , and then packed and labulml mid stored away in another room , prep aratory to buing pat in mail-bags for dispatching to till orders. If a singla Htuinp is lorn or in any way mutilated the whole sheet of one hundred Is burned. Five hundred thousand nro burned every wcuk from this cause. For the past twenty years'not tv .single sheet has been lost , such cilro hasbmsn tnkun in count ing thum. During the progress of man ufacturing thu sheets are counted ejovca tinioj.
