Mnvor Mnorno'H Inauguration.
H was precisely fifteen minutes before
eight o'clock last evening when Dalboy's
band of eighteen pieces struck up the open
ing overture In the south court room of the
county court house at the Inauguration of
Mayor Macrao. The spacious room was
lilted with a gathering * of representative
citizens , and the spnco inside the bar railing
was filled with ladles. 1'ollcomcn in full
uniform and whlto gloves did duty ns ushers ,
ana others wcro stationed at tno entrances ,
on the main staircase and In the corridors.
Every light In the largo building , both gas
nnd electric , was ablaze , and the scene was
a very attractive ono.
The bounties of the court room were
doubly nuparcnt under tha brilliant Illumina
tion , and largo bouquets of frAgrnnt flowers
graced the judge's bench.
Arranged In V ahnpo In front of the desk
of the presiding ofllcar were six tables for
the nldcrmcir , and between the opan ends
was the desk of the clerk.
At , 8:15 : the mayor and council , headed by
Chief of Pollcj Lucas und City Marshal
Guonolln , ( lied iu and took their scats.
In response to tbo call for the reports of
committees , Mayor Hohror stated that the
commission of Judge-Elect McGee , as judge
or the superior court , had arrived
from the governor of Jow.i , and
the city marshal was directed
to escort tno newly elected ofiiolal to the
room , after which the oath of ollico was
administered by City Clerk D. A. Parrell.
Tbo mayor thru read bis farewell mes
sage to the council.
Mayor Kohror's address was quite lengthy
und exhaustive. It embraced important
facts und figures , many of which have already
been made public by the board of. trade , and
other reports' . The nddnm will firovo a
valuable historical and statistical document
to bo lilod away and used for reference
rather than to bo tukon up as Interesting or
sensational reading.
On tlio matter of city finances Mayor
Hohror suggested :
. Every now nnd then n portion ot our citU
zcns cla'.in that taxes are too high und should
bo reduced , and at the same tlmo keep peti
tioning the city council for a larger flro de
partment , moro engine houses , which means
more man and more flro apparatus , for moro
nolicomon , for cleaner streets , for moro
electric , gas or gasoline light , for moro
bridges , water hydrants , etc. , nnd nt the
name time If n special election was called the
next day authorizing an additional levy for
specific purposes it would o-irry by u largo
majority. In this connection I dcsiro to state
that In my opinion the city council and the
school directors should give the public a
longer notice than is required by law to dis
cuss tlio merits of all questions that nro to
bo voted on authorizing the levy of additional
tax.Under our present system of valuation the
statr , count } and sohool district tnako a levy

require , while the crty council can only levy

In this connection I deslro to remind our
good pcoulo that all the taxes they have paid
( luring the year * 1833 und 1839 In excess of
$1.03 on each $100 m valuation went to the
state , county , school district , Omaha &
Council lilulTd railwav and bridge company ,
perks , library , interest , nnd to create a dink-
ing fund on outstanding bonds issued by law ,
and not in tno hands or subject to the order
of the mayor und city council.
Under the custom of assessed valuation
and the limit of 10 mills for all city pur
poses , including salaries of city ofllciiUs ,
police , lire nnd engineer's departments ,
streets und alloys , city property , tire appa
ratus , etc. , the mayor and city council for
years hnvo been trying to solve the problem
of giving our citUons , In compl < ana3 to their

I can not refrain from again reminding
you that our present administration was
obllccd to pilot through two of the most
prosperous years in the history of the city
with its corresponding Increased demands
from the heretofore unKnown portions of
thn city , with the limited income derived
from nn assessed valuation of $4,013,510
made January 1 , 18S7. The now administra
tion is cntitlod to our congratulations on ac
count of Its starting out as heir to the largest
increase lu assessed valuation ever falling to
nnv previous city council. The assessed
valuation from which they will derlvo their
10 mill levy is gO.138.2US mndo January 1 ,

Alderman Everett moved that the report
bo referred to the Ilimuco committee with
reference to having it published , as had
been the CIHO with other reports.
On motion of Alderman Lncy the council
adjourned sine die.
After a short recess the members of the
now council , Messrs. Woods , Wind , Lacy ,
Mlkcscll , Smith , Knopher , Everett und Cas-
i nr. tnnlr t.liplr
The roll was called and the reading of the
minutes dispensed with.
The oond of Mnyor-oloct Mncrao In the
sum of M.OOO , with J. L. btownrt and John
Heresbelm us sureties , was road und ap
proved. '
CAldcrmcn Everett nnd Lacy were ap
pointed u committee to notify the mayor-
elect of the approval of his bond and to re
quest him to present himself to bo sworn
into ofllco.
City Clerk Furroll administered the oath ,
nnd the now mayor took his place on the
rostrum. The retiring mayor presented him
with the gnvol , and the newly inaugurated
mayor road his first message to the council.
Ho started out by stating that taxes were
too high. Ho said :
"Men capable of judging , and whoso opin
ion In such matters Is worth having , toll mo
tnoy nro too high. It will bo obsorvud that
I do not arrogate to myself any Intlinato
knowledge of the situation , nor can I do so
until 1 have made a study of our taxes and
all other matters connected with our inuni-
clpal govornmont. It will devolve then upon
mo , upon you , my follows In the council , to
attempt to reduce the nxpondturos , to care
fully guard and watch for tankages , and
In this way make ends meet. Wo must see
that our expenses are light , and that they
must not exceed our Income. The resolu
tions adopted at the recent annual mooting
of citizens must bo the guiding star of our
action in financial mnttura. 1'1'heso resolutions
tions were then read. ]
" 'I guess you'havo thn hardest and wick-
edo t city in America,1 was the remark
which was mndo to mo the other day on the
tram. These of us who llvo and have al
ways lived hero can hardly roallzo the Im
pression which strangers receive when they
visit us. Wo nro so much taken up with our
own business , our minds und time so preoccupied -
occupied , that wo do not , , see the enormity of
immorality nnd looseness which Infests us ,
or perhaps wo regard the condition as m-
pvituhlo In u largo anil crowing city.
Ihoro Is no doubt , ho\vovor , thnt our character -
actor Is a bad ono , the name of our fair city
despoiled nnd a byword. It Is unnecessary
to particularize our shortcoming * in this ro-
spocti sufficient , to say that it mutt Do your
duty anil mlno to endeavor to place our beloved -
loved city iu the fore front of Iowa cities as
far as regards morality and firm government
to regulate and place under careful control
what must bo endured , and effectually stump
out the uuondurablo. With ibis end la viuw
It will bo necessary to plaoo tha police eys-
tcm under moro stringent dUclpllnotban has
heretofore obtained , requiring the members
of tae force to conform itrlctly to the rules
nnd regulations sot before them ; Ig
nore party nnd party affiliations nnd obey
to the letter the orders of their superiors.
The discipline must bo absolute and military
In character , nnd the penalty fornon-ncqUl-
csconco prompt dismissal.
" 1 conclusion , I would remind you of the
Important nnd responsible positions whloli
you alt occupy : of the necessity for careful
nnd methodical study of yourvnrloui duties ;
of the reward which awaits you In the
knowlcdgo that you bavo dona your duty.
I would also remind you that while tlio posi
tions that wo have all assumed are probably
thankless ones , whllo wo strlvo to do the
greatest good to tlio greatest number , thai
there will always bo n largo minority whom
wo cannot plouoo. So that , after all , wo
must simply do our duty. "
The mossazo was listened to with the
closest attention , and was loudly applauded ,
It was referred to the committee of tbo
whole , nftor which a recess was declared.
For fifteen minutes the hand of tha new
mayor was warmly shaken , when tbo coun
cil was again called to ordor.
A motion to adjourn was carried , and the
newly organized body will moot again at 2
o'clock this afternoon.

It Wasn't Ttielr Day.
A great many people were found yester
day who announced their Intention of attend
ing tbo inauguration of tbo newly elected
mayor at the court house last evening , but
there were also others who woro. not thnt
way Inclined. Of the latter class , some
were democrats nnd some were republicans ,
but none of them were admirers of Mayor
Hohror. They denounced his farewell cxnt-
bitioti ns a pleco of rank foolishness , and
vowed that they would show their disap
probation by staying away. Alderman
Weaver , Judge Aylosworth ana several
other rotirine city ofllclals were included in
the list , whllo Judge James and other sue-
csssful candidates seconded the idea. Said
Judu'Q Aylesworth :
"You can't expect n man to danca at his
own funeral , can youf I can't see why
Rohrer is celebrating his retirement with
such a blare of trumpets , and inviting all of
us follows d wn there , when everybody
knows that lib administration was tlio only
thing that caused the defeat of the demo
cratic ticket hero this sprinc. Ho wants us
nil to go down thorn and glory over our de
feat. I am not at all sere beeauso I was de
feated , for I urn roallv batter off out of the
oflleo than I was In It. There has been a
general feeling that the past administra
tion has boon corrupt and venal , nnd
In many respects I bollovo that
there is reason for this fooling.
I anticipated a change , and was not disap
pointed when ID camo. I ballevo the new
council Is ono of the best the city has ever
had , and I think that the next administra
tion will bo u satisfactory ono. I don't up-
provo of the hurrah that Hohror Is getting
up , and it looks very wouk to mo. "
Said Alderman Weaver : ' 'H Is all non-
seiiso to do the thine this way , und I won't
go. Hohror probably wants to gnt auout
1,000 copies of the message printed , and I
don't propose to vote for It. "
"I can't bo the corpse and n pall-bearer
too , " was the way In which Judge James ex
pressed himself.

The IMro Chi of.
The statement that the republican mom-
bo rs of the city council bavo fixed up u slate
of appointive ollloarn. Is denied by the now
aldermen. They admit that the tnnttor has
been talked over , but they say that no defi
nite-conclusion has yet boon reached. Said
Alderman Everett yesterdays "It looks now
very much os If the llttlo already done in
this direction would bo smashed to places
when the council moots in executive sei-
ilon. "
U leouiR that there 1s great diftlculty In
agreeing on a satisfactory chief of the flro
department. The aldormeu thought taoy bad
picked out the right man.butlncro la o mud
opposition nt the ( Jjfijd suggestion thnt they
nro again casting about in search of proper
material. The demand scorn * to bo thnt tin
now chief shall btf .thorough Qiomnn nnd
ono who will coinfMnil tno respect of the en
tire department. The two men who rccclVo
the strongest support , are James Bradtay. the
present electrician , and Norrls B. Wicks ,
who Is stationed at No. 3 IIQSO house. Both
nro thoroughly capable firemen , and the plan
now suggested Is tb'laalto ' Itradloy chlof nnd
Wicks assistant chief. In thiscaso a capable
head to the department would bo constantly
on duty. It Is urgo&that the present salary
Is not enough , and u Bradley Is now receiv
ing 990 per month , It Is recommended that ho
ho paid at least9100or $ l i per month. This
would reduce the pay roll of the department
from 910 to 910 per month , and nt tno snmo
tlmo greatly Increase Its cniclcncy. The
Idea that It Is necessary that the chief shall
bo selected ontsido the department is by no
moans general among there who dcsiro to sea
this branch raised to the highest possible
standard of cniclcncy :
Great rosiluluttcH In It for the Two
\Vritlnp on the subject of artesian
water power in the Uakotas a contrib
utor iu the True Republican , published
at Wossinton Springs , S. 1) . , says :
There is power sutllciont that can bo
obtained at no very great cost * that can
and will bo at no distant day utilized to
run all the manufactories that are or
will bo needed in South Dakota , and to
prind every grain of Dakota hard
wheat. Instead of sp.nding our wheat
lo Duluth , Minneapolis or Chicago , wo
can make the flour at homo and inako
that as our surplus ; and what will bo
the result. ? Our last ' "short" crop of
wheat is estimated by the latest reports
from tlio agricultural dooartmont at
about 41,000.000 bushels ; by our own
statistics at about 44,000.000 , the value
of which is $24,000,000' 823,000,000.
Now at a rough estimate it costs from
40 to GO cents a bushel toscndour wheat
to Minneapolis and have it converted
into Hour. Two-thirds of this forty
odd million bushels may bo sold
as surplus and there is no doubt that
with our present "short crop" fully
20,000,000 bushels have been sent to
market so that if we had our own
flouring mills at homo , wo would have
been moro than $12,000,000 better oil
this year , as all the freight on the raw
material , the outrageous dockage and
profits of the middlemen the ele
vators would bo saved , and the cost of
the manufacture retailed at homo.
This may hardly scorn possible to
some who live on a "dry quarter , " and
have their well at a door in n barrel ;
but it is very likely that in the next
five .years there will bo many ( louring
mills run in South Dakota by this sub-
t'jrranoan power. At the same time
the water can again bo used for irriga
tion , and such crops as have never been
dreamed of greet your o.vcs on every
side. It booms mi if the Giver Of All
Good has especially prepared this re
markable healthy countrv for a won
derful future. VVo have the soil , and
the water just within our reach ; and it
can bo utilized just when we want it.

With the best babies , with plenty of

It has been reported that a project
has boon proposed to build a flouring
mill at Alpana. There is no doubt but
a well can bo put down there which will
furnish all the power needed at less ex
pense than a steam engine , and once in
operation there would bo very little ex
pense for power , while the surplus water
could bo utilized for town and irriga
tion purposes.

How Ho Contributes to the Great
ness ol' the llopublic.
The life led by a comfortable English
or American farmer would represent
wicked waste and shameful indulgence
to a much richer French peasantwrites
Frederic Harrison in the March Forum.
I myself know a laborer on wages of
loss than twenty shillings a week , who
by thrift lias bought ton acres of the
magnificent garden land between
Fontainobleau und the Seine , worth
many thousand pounds , onwhich grow
all kinds of fruits and vegetables , and
the famous dosart grapes ; yet whojvith
all his wealth and abundance , de'nios
himself and his two children meat on
Sundays , and oven a drink of tlio witm
which" ho grows nnd makes for the
market. I know a peasant family in
Normandy , worth in houses , gardens
and farms at least 500,000 francs , who
will llvo on the orts cast out as refuse
by their own lodgers , while the wife
and mother hires herself out as a scul
lion for two francs a day. The pontir-
iousness of the French peasant
is to English eyes a thing savage ,
bestial and maniacal.
The French peasant has great vir
tues : but ho has the defects of his vir
tues , and his homo life is far from
idyllic. IIo is laborous , shrewd , endur
ing , frugal , solf-roliant , sober , honest ,
and capable of intense nolf-coiitrol for a
distant reward ; but that reward is prop
erty in land , lni > ursultof which ho may
become as pitilb'sias a bloodhound. IIo
is not chaste ( indued ho is often lecher
ous ) , but ho relentlessly keeps down the
population , and can hardly bring him
self to roar two.cuildrou. To give these
two children n good heritage , ho will
inflict great hardships on them and on
all othnrs whom * ho controls. Ho has
an intonuo pas ioa for his own immedi
ate locality ; but iio loves his own com
mune , and still moro his own terre , bet
tor than ho lovijs Franco. IIo is intel
ligent ; but ho if ) not nearly so well edu
cated a's the Swiss , or the German , or
the Hollander , illo is able to boar suf
fering without'iYmurmur ' ; but ho has
none of that"J'lpporturbablo , courage
which Englishmen ami Americans show
In n thousand now situations. IIo is
shrewd and far seeing , nnd a tough
hand in a bargain ; but ho him none of
the inventive audacity of the American
citizen. Ho is self-reliant , but . too
cautious to trust himself in n now Held.
IIo is independent , but without the
proud spirit of the Spanish peasant. IIo
has a love for the gay , the beautiful and
the graceful , which , compared with
that of the Englishman , is the souse of
art ; though ho has nothing of the charm
of the Italian or the musical genius of
the Gorman. If Franco Is strong , the
backbone of her strength is found in
the industry and thrift o ( her peasantry.
And If her peasantry are thrifty and in
dustrious it is because the revolution of
' 80 has secured to thorn u position moro
free and Indopoddont than that pre
sented by any monarchical country on
the continent of Europe ,

LINCOUT , Nob. , March " 17. fSpectal
to Tun Hni : . ] Tno capital city U n political
center towards which politicians naturally
Kravltato and In which everything of a polit
ical nature receives the closest scrutiny. A
grcnt iniiny possibilities nro unearthed hero ,
nnd the latest concerns the proposed consti
tutional amendments for changing the Judic
iary. Ono nmcDdmcnt provides for Increas
ing the number of the nuprcmo court judges
from three to five. The other proposes to
raise their salaries to $11,500 nnd to increase
the salaries of the district court Judges to
f3,000. THcJO propositions were embodied
in a joint resolution , nnd Interested politi
cians nrc somewhat stirred ovoran apparent
dofcct In the resolution. It provides for nn
nfllrnmtivo vote on both proposition ! ) , but
tnuUu.t no such provision for the
negative. In considering the proposed high
license nnd prohibition amendments
this point was discussed , and particular
palna wuro taken to provide forms foriilllrm-
ntlvo and for negative votes on both proposi
A search of the records In the ofllco of the
secretary of'ituto has revealed the strnn 'o
fact that the original resolutions are not on
llle , and It it presumed they are still In the
possession of Walt Mi Seoley , secretary of
the sonato. It Is noa'rly n year since the IOR-
islaturo adjourned nnd Mr. Sceloy's action
has given rise to considerable speculation ,
not all of It complimentary.
There is on tile In ( ho ofllco of the secre
tary of state a bound sot of the bills nnd
resolutions as Introduced In the senate.
Among these nro tha original printed reso
lutions embodying the proposed changes In
the judiciary , and both of them provide n
form for negative ns well us for ulllrmatlvo
votes. These resolutions wcro introduced
by tno judiciary committee nnd It Is assorted
they were submitted to "members of
the suureuio court before balng brought
bofo.ro the senate. The resolutions were
amended In the house and the provisions for
negative vote dropped out. When asked for
an opinion on the validity of the submission ,
Chief Justice Cobb plodded n lacK of thought
upon the matter and evaded committing him
self. In speaking of the license and the pro
hibition amendments , however , the judgn
said the Impression was general among ttio
members of the legislature that under our
constitution the absence of form for nega
tive votes would not , Invalidate the resolu
tions. To carry they must have ii majority
of all votes cast at the election , and all bal
lots that do not have an expression on the
amendments are equivalent to votes ag-Unst
them. Some politicians believe that those
resolutions were manipulated to influence
the supreme court in Its consideration of the
double-barreled license-prohibition amend

The Enormous Ainotm'.H that the
DnHoni of OldJDoaan Iliitos.
A company lately sot out from Sydney
to Now Zealand to recover sun ken'trcas-
urcs from some old reck on the west
coast ot the Middle island , but so far no
returns have boon published , the oper-
itions probably not being completesays
the Sydney Herald. The subject of
sunken treasure reminds one of the
lioaps of gold carried in the galleons
ana like packets years ago. In 1709 a
shlp-of-war from Hlo to Lisbon hart on
Doard 0,000,000 of crusades in diamonds
and about 100.000 "crowns tournoia" in
piastres , making in the whole tiO,030OOI )
ivrus tournois. So much so for a single
ship. In 1774 two Spanish ships from
Vera Cruz an'd the Havana arrived with
J2.000.000 crowns , besides merchandise
valued at 27,000,000 crowns. Such ex
amples could bo multiplied.
Of the cargo of an English Inuiamnn
in 1771 , ono item alone , a diamond in
rough , was valued at . 103,000 , "going
to bo manufactured in England on ac
count of ono of the Asiatic nabobs , " and
on the private freight of this vessel the
po'.icios of insurance wore opened
at Lloyd's at a high premium , so
Costly were her contents nnd so doubt-
! ul her safe arrival. As a costly ship-
wrack La Lutino deserves notice. She
was ol thirty-two guns , commanded by
Captain Skynner. and went iistioro on
the bank of the Fly island passage on
the night of Outobor 0 , 1701) ) . At first
she was reputed to have 000,000 in
specie on board. This was afterward
contradicted by a statement that the
whole amounted to 140,000. In moro
modern times the costliness of ship
wreck is to bo found in the destruction
of tlio fabrlo and her cargo rather
than in the treasure on board. Whatever -
ever may have bean the worth of a
, 'alcon as a ship , there need bo no
jcruplo In concluding that when brand-
now her value would bo hut that of a
: oy in comparison with such ocean mail
jo'ats ai now convoy specie and valu-
ihlos. The sinking of an Atlantic , In-
Han or Austraillan liner oven with a
clean hold would represent an im-
mcnso treasure if told in dollars , ducats
or piasters , and when Is added the
cargo along with the passengers' luggage -
gage , which would include a quantity
of jewelry representing many thousands
of pouiulH , B'jmo astonishing figures
would bo the result.
The Itoyal Charter is the most nota-
jlo modern instance of the wreck of n
'tveuuuro" ship. She loft Australia
with JC350OC01n her.
