There is it favorable promlso that the
financial embarrassment of the Uulor
I'aoillc railroad Will bo relieved for n
lime. A mooting of creditors of the
company will bo hold In Boston today
at which It is expected an arrangcmonl
will bo made for an extension of tlu
lloaling debt , amounting , according tc
tint rcMorl of the government directors
to * 2I-IOO,000 on December 31 , 1800. It ii
announced that creditors representing
$12f)0,000 have already agreed to tin
proposal of the company , and it is nol
doubted that the others will do so. It :
that case temporary relief will bo pro
vided , but whether with results to the
permanent advantage of the company ,
only time can determine. It is nn expedient <
podiont that with wi.so , prudent mnnagO'
munt may enable the company to onet
more got on a solvent biais : , but whicli
without such management will place the
company in a worse embarrassment than
it h at present.
Tlio report of the government dlroc1
tors of tlio Union Pacific , just filed with
the secretary of the interior , is an
apology for tlio present financial condi
tion of the company andii plea for relief
by the removal of the restrictions im
posed by congress for the protection ol
the interests of the government. The
directors inuko a sweeping defense ol
the policy of the company in acquiring
control of tributary lines , qualified only
by the suggestion that the "terms and
conditions upon whicli some have been
acquired might bo open to dis
cussion , " an extremely moderate admis
sion in view of well known facts of olll-
cinl record. L5ut the more important
part of the report of the government di
rectors is tlio plea "for relief by the re
moval of exactions and limitations now
imposed by law. " It is nlllrmcd to bo
vitally necessary that the company shall
bo freed from these in order that it may
maintain itself in competition with
other systems ' 'not so hampered and re
strained"and the directors are unable to
perceive that " t he go vorn mentis any way
benoiitted by tlieso limitations , or that
security of its own lion would bo in the
least Impaired by its removal. " After
tliis deliverance it is not surorising to
find further on in the report that tlio
directors are iavorabo ! to an extension
of the security of the government prob
ably for a period of fifty years , at a re
duced rate of interest , as was proposed
in a bill introduced in tlio Fiftieth con
It can be safely assorted that popular
bontimoiit in the region traversed by
the Union Pacific will not endorse
the views and suggestions of the govern
ment directors of that road. The so-
called exactions and the limitations im-
peed by law upon the Union Pacific
company wore most deliberately pro
vided as absolutely necessary to the pro
tection and security of the interests of
government in that road , and they
are not less so now than when the legis
lation was enacted. The government
cannot abandon them without endanger
ing its interests. As to extending the
debt of the corporation to the govern
ment , the only certain olToot of that
would bo to prolong tlio exactions of the
company from the people wherever it
can carry out its well known policy. It
is highly probable tbac the cll'ort to
secure legislation favorable to the Union
Pacific company will bo renewed in the
next congress , and the report of tlio
government directors seems designed to
smooth the way for it.
The time is rapidly approaching for
the meeting of the republican national
central committee , at which the
date and location of the next re
publican national convention will
bo determined. There are practi
cally but two candidates for the
honor of entertaining the republican
cohorts. These are Omaha and Chi
cago. Minneapolis aroused quite a good
deal of local enthusiasm in her favor a
few weeks ago , but her efforts have been
practically abandoned. The friends of
Minneapolis under those circumstances
would therefore naturally favor Omaha
in order that the precedent of holding
national conventions west of Chicago
may bo established.
Thus far our campaign lias gone on
with a steady tide of sentiment making
toward Omaha. TUB UKK began the
agitation in time to secure the favor
able expressions of Iowa and west
ern newspapers in her behalf prior
to the Iowa republican state convention.
When the convention mot the delegates
wore prepared to receive a resolution for
Omaha with favor. Tlio Omaha'dologa-
tion therefore found no dilliculty in securing -
curing the endorsement of Iowa. It was
graciously , cheerfully and almost unani
mously given although no speeches
wore made upon the subject and the
delegation remained at Cedar Uaplds a
very short time.
Armed with this resolution and the
almost united sentiment of the. press of
the trniiHinissouri region in our favor
C'olonol Scott made his descent upon the
executive committee in Washing
ton , lie secured a hearing and
nromisos of a candid consideration
xt the hands of the working members of
Lho committee. Not only so but the
Dmaha movement was recognized as
bona ilde by the press of Washington
vnd the east and this city became known
uul i-.cknowledgod as a formidable rival
3f C'hicago.
The Nebraska state convention on
Thursday passed strong resolutions in
'avor of Omaha with a shout of uni
versal approval that told plainly enough ,
, hat Nebraska fully sympathizes with
iho ambition of her metropolis , Colo-
ado has her state convention next Tuea-
lay and will undoubtedly add the ap
proval of u third republican state con
vention to the proposition.
Chicago bus her hands and her hotels
mfllelontlj full already in anticipation

iggrosslvo a light as otherwise. The

n our favor , From this time forward

Gold Is flowing back to the United
States from Europe in a swelling
stream. Several million dollars lias
been received during the past twc
weeks and It is reported that between
seven and olght million is now on the
way hero. During the first six months
of this year the United States lost about
$70,000,000 in specie , nnd if ( he
return tide continues at present
proportions that largo sum will
all come back to the country before -
fore December 1. There is some doubt ,
however , as to whether Europe will be
disposed to part with so large amount
of gold. According to late dispatches
the Rothehllds and other great bankers
agree that the shipments of gold to
America will bo largo and that nothing
can prevent it , but in tlio same connec
tion nn eminent Hngllsh financial
authority is quoted as saying that
before $50,000,000 in bullion is
sent to this country , both the
Bank of England and the Bank
of Franco would ralso their rates of dis
count and check the drain. In the opin
ion of this authority payment for Ameri
can grain will bo made chiefly with
exports and securities. But this coun
try will undoubtedly get back a largo
share of the gold that went abroad this
year , and it will bo no disadvantage if a
portion of the sound American securities
hold abroad shall bo returned. We should
bo quite as well oil if they were all held
here and the returns from thorn wore
kept in the country instead of being
sent to Europe.
There appears to bo a feeling in
Europe that a financial crisis in the
United Stales is probable1 MS a consequence
quence of the largo amount of paper
that Is being added to tlio currency for
the purchase of silver , but there is little -
tlo ground for apprehending anything
of this sort if the amount shall not bo
allowed to exceed the present
limit. There would ba reason to
fear such a crisis if free
and unlimited silver coinage should prevail -
vail , but tlio country can absorb without
danger the paper issued in purchase of
the silver product of our own mines.
What is more to bo feared in the imme
diate future is wild and reckless specula
tion , to which the conditions offer a
strong temptation. There has been
a good deal of this already , and though
the damage done has not been widely
felt the failures of speculators furnish a
warning that ought not to nass un
heeded. It is in the power of the great
financial institutions of the country teat
at least restrain speculation within rea
sonable bounds , and both interest and
duty should induce them to do this.
MAJOR McKiNLKY was greeted at Ot-
tumwa , la , , last Wednesday by a vast
crowd , and his address was received
with great enthusiasm. Ho discussed
the tarill and silver questions with his
usual clearness and force , and took occa
sion to warn republicans against the
danger of allowing the - democrats to
got into power and gerr.vmivndor
tlio state and provide for the
election of presidential electors
by congressional districts. The Ohio
republican loader mauo a strong speech
and an excellent impression , and there
can bo no doubt that his visit to Iowa
will materially help the republican
cause. The outpouring of the people to
hear him was of itself a reassuring sign.
THE Union Pacific government direct
ors are out with their annual apology
for tlio unhappy financial condition of
that railroad. It is observed that the
directors do not place the responsibility
for the pecuniary embarrassment upon
the management which before competi
tion began to bo felt , wont on pocketing
dividends and wastefully expending and
diverting the largo profits of conduct
ing the road. The late difficulties need
not have presented themselves at all
had the earlier history of the Union Pa
cific been more judicious , honest and

When any government of Franco can will
easy assurance of its own Invincibly hole
upon the respect and affection of the people
put out its hand to crush the power the mol
of Paris which has again and again i"cr
turned nnd created governments , that ha ;
been for moro than 100 yoar.s tbo terror of al
government , it is only fair to assume thai
the republican idea at length rests upoi ;
broad , deep foundations , nnd that the gov
ernment of the French people , by nnd for the
French people , is not likely to perish , oven
though It bo set up there in the heart ol
Europe , where it is surrounded upon
all sides by other govern monts thai
look with disfavor upon it , anil the
stability of which its endurance per
petually munacos or renders impossible.
In every country of Europe the political
trend is in the direction of enlarged civil lib
erty , u broader , moro general recognition ol
popular rights , and the curtailment of the au
thority of personal government. The repub
lican idea has passed the experimental point
in Franco ; even the incident of the recent
omtiuto in tno Place do i'Opera furnishes
most gratifying proofs that behind and sun-
porting the government are the will and
power of the people themselves. "Paris is
Franco" is a saying the truth of which was
long ago conceded , and Paris was , to a most
dangerous degree , dominated by the mob.
That it , is so no longer , that the government
no moro fears it , that the authorities dare do
what is right in the foco of the .strongest
prejudices of the mob , are indications of now
and hotter conditions , which afford the most
gratifying assurance of toe perpetuity of the
French republic.

If the Hussions thought that England bed
so far lost the spirit of other years , that in
the march to Constantinople.sho might safely
bo loft out of account , they have found then- :
i.ch'03 mistaken , and the discovery seems lo
have made upon them a dcen nnd salutary
impression. They have made bnsto to dis
claim , not , Indeed ofllcially , but through
Journals which only print what the govern
ment sanctions , any special rights in the
Dardanelles for Russia , and the recognized
ministerial oriran in St. Petersburg mokos
the extraordinarily and exceedingly sinnill-
cant suggestion that England and Knssia
become allies instead of enemies , the con
sideration on the ono bond Using friendly
neutrality in Europe , and on the other a
recognition of English rights in Hindustan.
It is scarcely possible that these overtures
should lead to any delinlto action , but that
they should bo made shows clearly enough
what an effect the counter-demonstration at
Mityleno has had upon the Russian minu.
The Mityleno coup do main wns ttio most
masterly stroke in foreign politics executed
by any English statesman since Disraeli secured -
cured control of the Suez canal by the pur
chase of the Khedive's shares , and since
England , after oil said and done , represents
progressive civilization nnd liusslo quite the
contrary , Americans must feel gratified at
the exhibition which has been made of Eng
lish spirit.

It Is possible that the shortest road to a re
duction of thu burdens of Europe from vast
armaments may bo found to lie through the
increase of thorn. As the nations nest able
to afford the increase withdraw u larger pro
portion of their young men from productive
ndustry , and spend a larger share of the no-
: Ional product upon the army , and as they
uro imitntod by nations lass able to do this ,
, here must como a tima when the whole sys
tem will break down under its own weight.
That point has nearly boon reached in Hus-
< ia , whicli , as the least civilized and least
modern of European countries , is the least
iblo to sustain thu burduu of war taxes , ag
gravated as they are by ofllclal extravagance
