Till' : award of a medal by the French salon to nn American lady artist rubs the patriotic fur with the grain. IT is among the possibilities that the government will read its title clear to a pOHloflk'o site in Omaha within the next century. TJIK case and rapidity with which divorces are ground out in Connecticut shown that the Chicago gait is growing In favor in Now England. THK assessed valuation of franchisee ! corporations throws a calcium light on tlio profitable results of actively partici pating In municipal campaigns. Now that Tin : BEK has its Washing ton correspondent immortalized by hav ing a Banner county poatoflico named after him , wo fool that the country is safe at last. Tm : way of the transgressor is hard. Joe Miu'ltin , the distinguished "fine worker" of Chicago , stands a First class chance of another term in Joliet for political rascality. HAVING hold up the government for exorbitant prices for lots in block eighty-six , the beneficiaries are enjoy ing tlio boodle while an important pub lic improvement is retarded. THK vast increase in the appropria tions for the maintenance of the Gorman army gees to show Unit Emperor Wil liam is determined to preserve the peace of Europe if ho has to light for it. THK proposed sugar boot palace at Grand Island can bo made a success without importing attractions. A model ot the methods by which the Union Pacific squeezed sugar out of the town would form a unique center piece. TUB prompt and decisive victory gained by the lottery men in Louisiana loses none of its force because an item ized statement of the costs is not fur nished. The members of the legislature , however , are in position to retire from active business for a year or two. TUB unolllcial census reports of the enumeration of the largo cities of the state leave no room for doubt that the population of Nebraska will exceed one million , a gain of over half a million people In ton years. This insures at least six members of congress for the plate. THK painful lack of democratic organs In Nebraska justifies the Denver A'eies in tendering a few chunks of advlco to the party. The lack of Information on the political situation in the state ex plains the assertion that "There la a good lighting chance for the democrats of Nebraska this year. " The market value of the property of Omaha's franchised corporations , esti mated at fifty per cent of tlio stocks and lionds they have issued , exceeds ton mil lions of dollars. But the assessed valua- tlon Is less than two hundred thousand dollars. And yet the mayor , and the council committee are puzzling their brains whore to Increase the assessment roll. TIIK report of the government en gineer places the total cost of the Hen- iiopln canal , main line and feeders , at a frncthmlosd than eight million dollars. ( Compared with the Importance of the work to the granaries of the west , the cost is trilling. Water transportation from the Mississippi to the seaboard would In two years suvo that sum to .tho /armors in reduced transportation rates. Lake navigation regulates rates from Chicago eastward , regarding the outlook for the corn crip In Nebraska and Iowa are. very satisfactory. The past wool : waa peculiarly - culiarly favorable , and very generally throughout the corn belt the growth is excellent , The Nebraska crop pn .an uvorago U fairly clean , but has not boon cultivated-an muoh as usual. The pros pects arc that the crop will not bo less than last year. In southern Iowa corn Is in first rate condition , but in the north ern part of the state It has not received the usual amount of cultivation , owing to the continuous ruins , and Is about two weeks lute. The present indications arc that the corn supply of the year will bo ample , vrt'Kn tKK \ Tlio solution of tlio problem of reason able transportation rates between the trans-Missouri country and the east , nnd the release of the former section from the exacting domination now exorcised by the old Chicago r.illroad lines , must come from utilizing the upper lake com petition whoso value In reducing rates has already boon demonstrated by the experience of St. Paul , Minneapolis and Sioux City. This matter is 0110 of the very highest Importance to Omaha , and If the business interests of this city really desire to bo relieved of the disad vantages under which they tire placed by the existing situation nnd to obtain complete and permanent Independence of the demands of the corporations at whoso mercy they now are , the way to obtain both is clear and easy. Wo print elsewhere In this Issue a letter from Sioux City setting forth the benefits to that city that have resulted from the construction of a line of rail road the Sioux City tt ' Northern con necting It with the Great North ern or Manitoba system , thereby enabling It to tnko advan tage of the upper lake competition. Bo- fora this was done Sioux City asked In vain for such consideration from the Chicago roads as would enable her busi ness interests lo meet competition In her tributary territory , but now that she is enabled to avail herself of the upper lake competition it is no longer neces sary for her merchants to sue for favors. The Chicago roads , as our correspond ent states it , now "hustle" for business In Sioux City , nnd no longer manifest the arbitrary and arrogant spirit shown before she became independent of them. The bonofitd of this enterprise of Sioux City liavo not boon wholly local , the fact that rales at Omaha are lower than for three months being largely or entirely duo to the effect of upper lake competition at Sioux City. The sugges tion of our correspondent is that Omaha should construct a line of road to Sioux City to connect with the Sioux City & Northern , and if this wore done ho predicts that the Missouri Pacific would bo glad to make arrangements , while there would bo forever fixed at Omaha , the competition of the low lake rates which have been so important a factor in the' progress and prosperity of St. Paul and Minneapolis and have already revolu tionized the transportation situation at Sioux City. The experience of these cities has most amply demonstrated the importance and value of the upper lake competition in solving the problem of transportation rates , and what has boon good for them could not fail lo bo bene ficial to Omaha. Tlio mailer certainly merits the serious attention of our busi ness interests. TllK BUSIA'BSS SITUATION. The prosperous condition of business in Omaha for the past six months is evi denced by the clearings during that period in 18S9 as compared with 1890. They footed as follows : 1m 1390.

Interviews had the past week with the heads of Reading hpusos in each line of trade prove that Omaha increased an average of 2o to 30 per cent during the past six months , some reporting an increase of 15 per cent and others 55 per cent , the largest percentage being claimed by manufacturers and by firms engaged in sollingsteam and water supplies and plumbers' goods , and those merchants say that the trade of the city Is rapidly expanding as well in circum ference of territory covered as in the amount of goods sold in dollars and cents. Our merchants aro' shipping goods in carload lots as well as in smaller quan tities to all of the towns and cities of the Pacific coast from Portland to Los Angeles , and making a stiff fight against the jobbing centres of California and Oregon by delivering merchandise at their back doors at lower prices than they , who have heretofore claimed a monopoly of the coast trade , have deemed it necessary to offer ; and are in a fair way to bo able to assort that the coast trudo is us much Omaha's as 'Frisco's. Collections wore never so easily made in Nebraska as now , show ing that the prosperity of the city Is backed by the prosperity of the state , and , as Iho present crop of cereals prom ises to bo at least as heavy as that of last year and money Is easy , with no in dications of any undue stringency likely to come in the fall , the situation may safely bo said to Ixs very comfortable. PENNSYLVANIA POLITICS. * The political situation in Pennsyl vania this year possesses rather more than ordinary intorosl , and the course of the enmimign In no other state will 1)0 ) regarded by politicians generally , of both parties , with equal concern. This is duo in an important degree to the re lations which Senator Quay's personality will boar to the contest. There lias been a very vigorous and per sistent effort for some time lo destroy the political influence of Quay , who has shown himself a manager of uncommon ability and skill , and it , was hoped this would bo successful in the republican convention of last wool : . But it failed , the senator's candidate for governor recolvlijg Iho nomination , while the other candidates chosen wore not objectionable to Quay. There was a considerable minority very much dissat isfied with the result nnd a numbar of local leaders were more or loss demon strative In expressions of displeasure , but none UuTtoss the friends of Senator Quay proclaimed the action of the con vention aa tin ample vindication of that leader and an assurance that ho is stll ) strong In the confidence of the mosses of the party. This Is the apparent fact , but the ex tent of the disaffection Is evidently not inconsiderable , and unless this can bo jvercomo there la danger to the ropul > - Ucau ticket Flow oaruost the ilispleas- uio Is appears In the suggestion that nn Independent republican tlcko may bo put In the field , nnil In the expressions of such leading republicans in the state as B. F. Jones ox-chatrmnn of the national ropubllcni committee , Magee , editor of the Pitts burgh Times , and others of equal prominence inonco In the party councils. The can didate for governor Is not objected to 01 the ground of any flaw In his republican ism or any Sack of qualifications , bu solely because ho Is believed to bo tin creature of Senator Quay. All this son of thing Is not uncommon immedl "utcly after every state convention nnd It may bo found not dllllcuK to overcome It , but the ardent nnturo o ( the disaffection among the republicans ot Pennsylvania warrants a fear that If will bo no easy task , If It bo not Impoasl bio , to bring the party into that perfect harmony which is necessary to success , The result will very large'ly depend upon the selection for governor of the doniO' crutlc convention , which meets next Wednesday. It is thought that If ox-Senator Wallace should be nominated the chances of the republican party would bo very materially improved , but if ox-Governor Puttlson should bo Iho oundldalo the re sult would bo rendered extremely doubt ful. Ho has a record that makes him very strong with the people , and partic ularly with the eighty thousand minors who vote in Pennsylvania. The indica tions are that Wallace will bo the man , but It is by no moans improbable that the convention may bo convinced of the expediency of nominating Pattison. COLONKL NETTLBTON , government en- glneor in charge of the artesian well in terests of the west , has forwarded to con gress a report of his researches for the past three months. The question of ar tesian wells as a means of irrigation in duced the present congress to appropri ate a small sum for practical tests in'tho semi-arid sections of Iho west , nnd the work thus far accomplished strengthens the belief that beneficial results will follow. One of the most significant deductions made by Colonel Nettle- ton is that in the western sections of the Dakotas , Nebraska and Kansas the semi-arid region , once reclaimed , will absorb sufficient moisture to make further irrigation needless. This 1ms been repeatedly demonstrated in west ern Nebraska and eastern Wyoming , where cultivation ! , materially increased the rainfall and demolished the wide spread belief that farming in that sec tion was impracticable. The results ob tained from three months' work have boon most encouraging. They more than justify the expenditure and war rant the vigorous prosecution of the good work. The republican platform is of the pe culiar Pennsylvania pattern so far as the tariff is concerned , endorsing the MoKinloy bill in the form in which it was passed by the house. It declares for a federal election law , for service pensions , for ballot reform , and for such legislation by congress as will , while securing - curing the fullest use of silver as money , most certainly maintain a parity be tween the two motals. ANOTIIKU special civil service examin ation is to bo hold in Omaha of young men who desire appointments as topographic graphic aids in tlio geological survey. This will afford an excellent opportunity for some of the brilliant riprappors of the Twenty-eight club to secure a job , which most of thorn have not had for many years. THK redoubtable Dr. Slominskl , who has blossomed out into a specialist at Xiincoln , with a certificate of efficiency from an Omaha dyspeptic , has made a demand for damages on a Lincoln paper , based on his fractured reputation. What ho will recover is not likely to pay his board bill for any great length of timo.

ItUSSIAN' STUDENTS IN PA111H. Some of tlio Privations to Which The ; Are Subject. Tiio Paris papers are giving a , minute description of the Russian student's lift In that city. The picture is rathoi gloomy , but the 'details are worked oul well enough for a study , says the Novv York Sun. At the present time tlio' Russian col ony in Paris Includes about one hundrci nnd fifty students , male nnd female , ant about thirty refugees. Thov live with the must rigid economy , foi their resources are very limited , Twelve to 820 a month may bo con sldorcd as the average of their income , out of which they have to nay for thoh terms ; and moreover there Is an onerous discount on the paper money which they rocolvo from Russia. From this It is easy to SQO Unit they nro obliged to en dure considerable privations , nnd consequently quently they are forced to make their headquarters in la Glaclorc , Saint Victor and ( Jroulobnrbo , whore the facilities of cheap living nro abundant. When a student or a refugee arrives ho notilles his countrymen. There is n society among them to which tlio "now comer npp.lles. With its help ho is en abled to nnd n lodging , which costs from 815 lo 82o a year. Ho brings along with him his furniture , which consists of skins and bed clothing. If ho is rich , compar atively , ho buys a trunk , some straw and a bed. If ho has not sulllcient means to procure tlieso luxuries ho does without them nnd sleeps on the lloor , like Mile. Eroqulno ami many others , patiently waiting until ho can save up , cent after cent , enough lo buy a bod. If ho is com pletely destitute ho is placed with an other comrade equally embarrassed , whoso homo and misery ho shares. It is not a rare thing to find among them room-mates , men or women , who pay from $8 to $10 n year for their apart ments. In food the Russian student is also ex tremely economical. Ho eats black broad and cabbage. Meat is a luxury which ho enjoys only once n weolc. The quality of his food troubles him little ; quantity with him is the main object. Therefore ho fills himself with cheap stale bread , including the refuse crttsls of the restauranls. When ho is able to have a moro substantial meal ho goes to one of the Russian boardin"1 houses , where ho gets the nalional dishes at a cheap enough rale. The most important - tant of these establishments is the Studonls' rcsluurunt kept by M. Koch in the Rue do la Glaciero. It is in the rear of the building , is clean and spacious , but there is , of course , no evidence of luxury in it. The gardens of a religious com munity can bo scon from it , and the sight refreshes tlio poor students , some times almost worn out by hard study in their garrets , with little light and less air. This restaurant has about eighty customers. There is only ono meal a day , the dinner , which for some begins at noon and for others at 5 in the af tor- noon. The price of each dish never ex ceeds 20 centimes , and the entire menu costs about 14 cents. These who come to dine a la carlo and have no cash write down in a book the amount of their debts at the end of each meal and pay when their money arrives. Another restaurant of this kind is in tlio Rue Flatters. In this , as in the ether ono , the dish which forms the main portion of the daily mean is kacha [ outinonl and lard ) . For a Parisian palace - ace this seems rather tough ; but it is very filling stuff , and for 4 dents a stu- lent can have enough of it to last him 'or twenty-four hours. When the Russian student finishes his course of studios and becomes a doctor 10 will go any where under the sun to seek his fortune. PEPPERMINT DROPS.

THE CAPITAL CITY CRIST , A Movement to Orgauizo an Episcopal Diocesan cesan Ohoir Association , AN AGED CONVICT TO BE PAROLED , The Second Ilnptlst Gliitroh Society Formally Dedicates ltd New StriiotMro SfintllmnKCtl City News and Notes , LINCOLN , Neb , , JUno 20. [ Special to Tin : Br.n.J A movement Is on foot to organ ize a diocesan parish choir association of the choirs of the Episcopal diocese of Nebraska , the object of which Is to Improve and further the progress ot church music In that church. AH Iho Episcopal churches of Lincoln nro heartily In favor of such a move , and It Is bo- llcvcd that nil the other churches In the diooc.-io will also full Into line and glvo their hearty co-operation to the scheme. The proposition Is now under consideration by Bishop Worthhigton , and It Is believed that ho will heartily endorse It. The association will comprise the best church singers In the state of Nebraska. These musicians will hold nu annual festival nt ono of the cities or towns In the diocese , nnd the musiu for the occasion will bo selected three or four months beforehand , so that each choir will hnvo ample time to thoroughly master tt and niako the festival a grand musical success. An asso ciation director will bo chosen from ono of the choir masters in the diocese and during the preparation for the grand festival ho will visit all the choirs In turn and personally lead each so ns to make a harmonious musical assembly when the great festival Is hold. This system Is a common ono In the Knglish diocese , and the result Is that In England the smallest parishes can furnish as good church singers as the larger towns aud cities. The benefit Is mutual to both city and village , as the singers In each put themselves under n long course of training under the best musi cal director in the dioceso. and the stimulus excited by the spirit of rivalry causes each choir to attempt to outdo all the others. As a result soma line singers nro developed and the worshipers la the diocese not only get the benefit of a grand musical treat every year in which there nro several hundred singers , but also tlio tone of the music In each church becomes permanently improved. Mr. H. J. W. Denmark of Holy Trinity church of Lincoln , and the most prominent Episcopal choir loader hero , is taking u promi nent part in attempting to bring the schema to n reality. He is very enthusiastic In re gard to the matter , and declares that ho will do all ho can to make the proposed associa tion a success. AX Aor.n CONVICT PAROLED. Not only will John KounUo nnd Walter Hardin bo released from the penitentiary the coming i.1 ourui ot Juiy , out oiu uutcn runic , as ho has been known for a quarter of a cen tury , and who is by far the most aged convict among the U75 , will be paroled for u year. Old Dutch Frank has been a convict for over twenty years. He entered the institution in the prime of manhood , but is now an old and decrepit man of nearly seventy. During his Incarceration Lincoln has grown from a village of 500 inhabitants to u city of 55,000 , while all the other cities and towns in the state have grown with a magic almost equally surprising. During that time all the friends and relatives of Dutch Frank have either died or moved to places where ho cannot llnd them. Last year the board of pardons offered to grant him his liberty , but ho refused the offer , snying that ho was so old and weak that ho was unable to support himself and ho preferred the peni tentiary to the poor house. Of late ho has been in fairly good health and yesterday ac cepted the offer of the board of a year's pa role. At the end of that time ho will proba bly return to the penitentiary to pass the few remaining years of his Hfo. The crime that blighted the old ago of Dutch Frank was murder , but the old man is' now us harmless as a child. KUW IIAITIST CIIUnCH DKlHC.VTfiD.

In the opinion Of a recent visitor , Venice , divested of false history and false sentiment , seems filled with con temptible travesties upon the inexpress ibly superlative claimed from time Im memorial for the , "Adriatic Quoon. " ' There is not a city'of 50,000 inhabitants in continental Kuropo which docs not own , and without endless bravado and tiresome self-praise about it , equal stores of ecclesiastical Ircaauro and equal if not superior treasure in painting and sculpture. Ono reads of her "domes and minarets" until the mind's horizon is fretted with the Hashing silhouttos of some magical city of the Orient. Venice has no more domes tlinn Hoslon ; no moro mlnarels than Now York , writes Edgar L.Vnko \ - man in tlio Columbus Dispatch. , Any one can count those on the lingers of 'both hands. Such as she has are squatted and pinched as though the appropria tion had suddenly given out and the builders had "knocked oil' " right there , awaiting the funds of some future goldivn age. age.Tho ecdosiastically famous cathedral of St. Mark is exceeded In beauty , pro portion , Htutolliicss and majesty by 500 religious structures in the United Stales , The crumbling , tumbling , rumbling city hull of Chicago , that architectural laugh- ingUtoclc of Iho west , is a hotter building In every respect , and with its inninmolh carynlides nndjilroinoiulous polished granite columns , presents a moco impos ing facade than Iho "restored" Ducal paluca of Vonlco.

About five hundred people paid $1 each to witness the light between the puma and the bulldogs , and when the excitement of tlio llrst round broke loose fully 500 moro broke through the gates in such a rush that the gatekeeper was swept away , says the Dallas News. The . light was a failure. The dogs , on bolngXV turned loose in the cage , paired olt and4 began to chow each othor. They ctuno in contact with the puma once or twice , and then Iho attacking dog was simply slapped ovor. The dogs were pulled out and put in one nt a time , but neither of the beasts cared to light. A second time all were put in the cage together , and , as before , they paired oil ! and fought each other , while the lion lay down and looked upon the sculllo in an unconcerned manner. None of tlio brutes was hurt. The crowd was disap pointed. Xo Wriiulcr Ho Is "IVnntcd.
