About a half an hour afterwards , in his address In denouncing lawlessness and demanding the enforcement of lav , In Iho midst of his excitement ho exclaimed : "Why , tlio saloons of this city cost tbo county list year In criminal expenses a half-million of dollars ! " The problbltloiihU present cliecrcd most lustily , Air , Kosewater saw thai lie had un intentionally inudo a truthful admission , lit ! was decidedly nettled.

Tbo crimes tg which ho referred as costingtlio county so much were committed by men under the in fluence of liquor bought in regular licensed and so-called rudiieutaUo saloons , and not la the lo-vrdogjcric * running without license. So , by accident inlits excitement , Koscnrntor for once told tbo truth about the cost of saloons and the low to tbo county through them. "Tell the truth and shame thrs dovll.

Whnt were thofncts about that memor able speech before the law and order loiffiieVhoii ? the hi * h license law went into effect In 1881 tholiq.uor dealers in Omaha rebelled , against the thou sand dollar license and other provisions of the law , which they claimed worked a great hardship upon them. THE BEIS planted Itself squarely In fnvor of the enforcement ot tholnvriuidtho editorof THIS ItKis grap pled with the rum power and joined hiinds with the law-abiding1 citl/.oiis , in cluding the loading ministers , who then favored high license.

OF TIIK t7tVJKKXl/CJ3R. ) The convention of the Interna tional Funeral Directors association Is embalmed In current history. Numerically and intellectually it was a success. Its delibera tions wcro marked with impressive decorum. The sordid affairs of the world were matters of secondary consideration. The ono great object in view wns to lift the profession from the slough of despond and cnobloit as the last but not the least ot all. So firmly was this hon orable , aim kept insight thnt the veter ans of the cooling ; board -who sought a return to the simplicity of the fathers were promptly and handsomely laid out. Tho'splrlt of progress is notably prom inent among the funeral directors of todny. The fathers nnd forefathers were content to plod tliolr weary , woful way usplain undertakers. Only la the last extremity -was their acquaintance sought. Vet they possessed a tender sympathy for humanity , and displayed a touching anxiety for the condition oftho nfllictcd. The business -was under a shroud , so to speak , but the rising gen eration cast It aside. "With reckless courage they battered down social bar riers and pushed to tlio front , not aa common undertakers , but under the ele vating title of funeral directors. This was the ilrfit great stride under the law of spectral evolution. The mo ment the progressive inombei-s emerged from the cadaverous glpoia of undertak ing ; Into the bright sunlight off funeral directing , the profession secured a con spicuous place In the economies of nature. Where formerly tliolr services were sparingly sought , they are now lu- disponslUo. So general U this fact recognized that when nuioinborIs , called to u home , ho It the abode ot aflluonco or the cottage * of the .poor , ho hangs his banner on the outside door u a symbol of benign faro ? . IVom thcrlmmWo level of the undertaker , the funeral director 1ms leaped to a plane of distinction , bo * come the potted marshal of processions and the comforter of thonftlictcd , As might have been expected , the convention , from Its commanding posi tion , treated with silent contcint | tbo opposition of the ministers to the onwatd march of the modern , funeral. What would life bo to the director without nn Impressive folio wing V To lead the melancholy hosts with stately nioln tf timksof tears through prominent streelr , Is nn honor to which few in oi'tals aspire , nnd those who reach tlio eminence , by courage and perseverance , are not to bo gravely sacrificed to sentiment. The evolution of the profession Is posi tive nnd permanent. Gauged by the progress of thdpast , wo may confidently look for greater strides in the future. Not aloneas builders of cities have the directors achieved greatness , but us artists of. fashion and moulders of foim they nro unapproachable. Of tlio mil lions of patrons , wo have yet to hear ( f one who has reproached them with negligence , or cluirgod them with in- compctoney. The knight of the csiskct is marching proudly toward his glorious destiny. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ . FMlt Mj The republican party lias always favored fair anil free election * . A free ballot and an honest count has been one ot Its cardinal principals. As an exponent of true republicanism Titn JlKK desires to place the pending elec tion above suspicion of trickery , dishon esty or fraud. We therefore urge the county commissioners to exercise the broadest impartiality in the selection of the ofllcers of election for -tho various wards and precincts of the city and county. In view of the magnitude of the interests involved in the coming election the roll ot citizens from which the judges and clerks oC election are to bo chosen , should be made up ot our most reputable and responsible ultizons. Thoward bummorand political heeler should bo given a wide berth , No man should bo made a cleric of election who is not a rapid JIM ! legible penman. 2S'o man should be- placed on the board who 19 disposed to bo boistrous , quarrel some , or . intemperate.All parties should have fair representation. The 33uK goes oven further than that. While the prohibitionists In Douglas county will poll less than twenty per cent of the entire vote , wo recogiiizo the pro priety of placing ono prohibitionist on the election board in each voting pre cinct. More than this prohibitionists have no right to ask , and with this con cession they ought tnbf ! content. AN IHTEK-COSIIKENTAL 7 ? < ir& Jr.ir. There will meet in Washington during tlio present month commissioners repre senting the United States , Mexico and countries of South America to decide upon the preliminary work for the sur vey of the most practicable roulo for an intor-coatinontal railway. The commis sioners for the United States h'wobeen appointed , and Mexico , Brazil , Ven ezuela , Peru and Colombiahavo selected their representatives. The assurances received at the state department war rant tlio expectation that u , majority ot tlio powers represented in the Pan- American congress will participate ) in this conference , and no doubt Is enter tained of satisfactory results. This project was strongly recom mended by the concress of American na- Lions hold in Washington early in the present year , nnd it bus since grown in favor both in this country and the coun- trlesof South America most directly in terested. Our minister to Bolivia , In a late report to the state department , wrote enthusiastically of the reception the proposed enterprise Imd received in that country. Ho said that ono of the drawbacks to trade with South Ameri can countries is the cost of transporting goods from the ports ot both oceans to the interior of tlio continent , -\vhoro , for the most part , are to bo found the cen ters of the mining1 and agricultural pop ulation. Under existing conditions sup plies for these districts must be carried from tlio coast by pack trains for ndis- ta-nco of from ono hundred to eight hun dred miles , and at great expense. The luipotus given to South America and to South American Investments , as the re sult of the International American con ference , means a largely augmented population In tlio mining and agricul tural centummida , consequent Increased demand for supplies. "With an Interna tional railway passing through the in terior of the continent , wrote the min ister , this demand can "be met by the United Slates as against the world. Once connected by rail witl the country south of the Isthmus , the United States will became the objective point of the South American merchant and tourist. It ia not doubted that the people of South America would prefer to trade with the United States if they can do so on equal terms with tliosa offered by other coun tries. The toatfinony In that they hail with satisfaction every proposition -that tends tothatresult , and hence Ills that the recommendation for an International railway Is regarded with especial favor. The result of this interest Is al ready ap parent In the projection of nw lines and broad schemes of Improvement. This comprehensive scheme of a great railway connoctinft the continents of North and South Aiiwrlcn is bollovod by those- who have given the matter careful study to bo entirely prac ticable , although there nro cnonnouu obstacles to bo overcome and vast capi tal would bo required to complete the work. Uut the question of practica bility , except us to what would bo the Ih-at section of such , n railway a line from Mexico to Panama and the character nnd extent o ( the engineering dtflli'ultics to bo overcome , can only bo deilnltely and accurately known from a general survey , nnd to provide for tlila Is the olijoot of the center nco soon to he hold in Washington , each government represented In. which will meet Ita pro portion nto sliaro of the expense of u sur vey , This will bo a work of time , prob ably consuming tire or three years , and If itihould result in finding ; an available route for an Intor-eontlnontal trunk rail way , there can bo no doubt that the cap ital necessary to construct It would bo forthcoming" . The project U onoof such Imposing mugnltudo that It is not sur prising thoreHnould bo doubts ns to the sincerity of fell proposal , but It lain "har mony with til progressive and conquer ing spirit of tlo ajjo , and energy and en terprise will lot bo wanting to carry It to succossfulfVicompHshmont if nature has not placed Insurmountable obstacles In the way. _ FOK OJM/M. / Wo print in another column the full report of the special commlttoo of the board of education regarding the feasi bility , legality inul expense of establish ing u normal department for thu schools of Omaha. . , Tlio committee believe that such a do- par tment can bo successfully conducted in connection with the city school system , that Its establishment would bo legal , for Avhlcli they have the authority of the attorney of the board , and that the ex pense need not bo largo. It may bo sug gested that if the city provide the neces sary building nnd appointments the stale might very properly supply the Instruc tors , nnd doublloHs there would bo little dllllculty in obtaining from the legisla ture nn appropriation for tills purposo. If this wore- done the question of expense to our citizens would bj very greatly simplified. There is nothing now In the charac ter of this project. As the committee Bays nornnl schools exist In many cities ot tlio country , and they have been found so important an adjunct to the prosperity of the schools that when once established they bocoino permanent. That their value and usefulness lias re ceived extended and uniform demonstra tion ought to b3 a sufficient argument for tlioso having charge of the educa tional interests of Omaha. It is not nn Innovation that is sought , but the insti tution here of a wcll-tcled system , the merits of which are attested by scores of examples and yoarsof experience. It isdesirablothatour public school teachers shall bo oblaincd as fur as ? possible , from among those who have passed through our schools. The policy of protection to homo industry is In this particular at least eminently sound and wise. It is an. Incentive nnd stimulus to effort with these who are ambitious to enter the educational field , and its tend ency must bo to infuse into the schools greater zeal and earnestness. There is no good reason why the graduates of the high school who wish to "bjcomo teachers should bo compelled to go away from homo to secure Iho required iioi-miil instruction , nnd there are sonio who might bscqnia shininjj lights In our schools who are .unable to comply with this necessity. As to the plan for a de partment of theory and practice pre sented by the committee , it is presumed that it was prqparod from a care ful study nnd comparison of the systems of other cities and embraces all that the committee believed to bo Dost intheso sj'stomsas applicable to Omaha , The board of education will of course give the plan thorough consideration. This subject is a most interesting and important ono iir Its relations to our schools , and should receive from these having their welfare In charge thought ful and careful attention. All interested lit the question are referred tp the re port oTnrdcbTni5lttco. COR.Yis KVIIOPK. Recent advices state that there Is a growing interest in Great Britain on the question of using Indian corn for human food. At the fairs of the pres ent year in various British cities corn grown In the "United States has been put oncxhibitionln very attractive wn33 , and novel iirojocts have been got up to secure Its Introduction ns an article ot diet for the use of tlio Uritlsh people , Alate London dispatch says there can bo no doubt that If the efforts nowboiiit ; made to promoto'theconsumptlon of In dian corn Lu Great Di'itatn are success ful , a now nnd profitable market for this crop of the United Statoswill bo estab lished , to the material advantage of American corn raisers. A very g-ood account is given of the work done by Jlr. Charles J. Murphy , representing the corn interests of Ne braska at the Edlnburg exposition of this year. Mr. Murphy did excellent service at the Paris exposition , under conditions not the most favorable , in introducing'Clio claims of Indian - dian corn to the attention of Eu ropean visitors , and the experience there obtained enabled him , it would seem , to do much moro at Edinburgh. Not only did ho display before the multi tudes t the exhibition , sayg thoaccount , the verdant stalks as they grow In Amer ican soil ; not only did ho give lectures for the edification of his hearers ; not only did he display the corn on the cob and the corn inoal from the mill ; not only did ho toll of the hundred ways in which it may bo pro pared for the table , but he also cooked the food in the pres ence of the public Jn a great variety of methods , nnd served it , at nominal prices , to all visitors who could bo In duced to try any of its preparations. All this , it can easily be understood-was a revelation and awomlor to the great majority of the people , few of whom had previously any knowledge of the value of corn as foouVj rhilo fewer Btlll had ever before tastvaj ) any of the prepara tions of It. 11IU The introdncWtlv'-of corn to the tables of Europeans vfVl doubtless proceed slowly , and It Is py likely to find ac- conlunco moro rapidly with the bettor than the poorcir classes. Among the latter the projudlco against corn as a diet for human beings Is BO strong that they prefer to it the poorest wheat or rye bread. Hut once the better cltissas begin toextcnslvoly use it for its wholo- seine , iiutrlous and nalutnblo qualities its progress In gtmcraluso will be rapid. Meantime the question is pertinent whether corn ia aa freely and generally used on the tables of our own jieoplo as it should bo. While wo are urging it upon the iitteiitloa of Iho people of Europe as a nourishing , palatable and cheap food vfould'lt not be well to urge Its larger use among1 ourselves ? It is probable there are nearly as many people ple In tlio United Stutta who do not use corn at their tables oa there are in England and Scotland , so that if corn were of universal use hero as human food we should hnyo little noodat prurient to go abroad tollnda market for the pro duct. SOMK : ot the principals in the Brook lyn jchools hnvo decided thnt so'/cral of Longfellow's poems are improper , and hence they have nskod that the reading of his works in the public schools bo In terdicted by the board of education. The conclusion reached by those purity cru saders has astonished the most careful readers and students of Long-follovr's ' works. Up to the present time the wish of tlicso crusaders has not been complied with , "llulldlng- Ship" Is thopoom most complained of , the ono most objec tionable , entirely unfit to "roach the cars of their youtnful charges , " and the following stanza , which describes the launching of the ship , as the more ob- jectlonablo oE Iho pee in : Shostarts she moves she seems to feel The thrill of llfo olonu lierkocl , And , spuniinavltli her foot tlio ground.

Tin : Pullman companystrugglos pain fully to break the effect of the decision ot the su promo court of Minnesota.

This is , of course , an urgent reason why all suck -wires should go underground. But it is also a reason why linemen should bo moro fully protected , and why they should bo made to understand the necessity of greater precaution than they employ. "While Kopp was banning and dying , an electrician by using- Insulating gloves was able to reach him in safety. 11 Kopp Uad employed tbo same safeguards , hoyoula bo ulivo now. If the companies concerned provide their meinvith theao nppllunces nnd insist upon the tiso of them , they will relieve themselves of a heavy responsibility.
