NTo sonhiatrj of flatiats can make it anything1 olso. EVEKY mail in Omahn owes it to himself - self ns n cltixon of this city to see that the rofriatrjition lists sliall not show any murkod decrease in ngfjrcgtito numbors. WHKN stump soivkors | refer to Franco as the model of iv prosperous country and pivo sis ti reason for this orospority Iho volume of paper currencythoy evi dently forgot that Franco pays the heaviest lux per capita of any land on earth. J. W. KnoTSitTON , in his Albion speech , Buys ho happened to bo inter ested enough in the lust legislature to stay there the whole term. This is correct. ITo remained nt Lincoln us a part of the most conscienceless , unscru pulous lobby that over manipulated leg islation in this stato. * ) 'J ' GKNKUAI , O. O. HOWAUD thinks the "canteens" are nn improvement on the traders' store , but ho vigorously pro tests against making soldiers the bar keepers in the canteens. The canteen Is rapidly growing into an issue which will probably bring on a good deal of discussion in the next congress. ALKKAI > Y upwards of $20,000,000 in depredation claims have boon filed in Iho court of claims. . If these are all to bo adjudicated nnd L. W. Colby can re main in ofllco uutil they are disposed of , ho may just "as well transfer his resi dence to the District of Columbia , 'for there is where ho will stay till the end of life. Tun independent platform denounces the penitentiary contract and declares that it is ti source of constant corrup tion , but the late independent legisla ture uassod an appropriation of $10,000 for a now cell house , although by tlio terms of tlio contract the lessee of the penitentiary should build 210 cells at his own expense. FHANCK issued $1,800,000 in nssignots about 100 years ago. They bore the Btiunp of tlio government and were re puted upon their face to bo money , but they depreciated so in value that a pair of boots cost $1,500 and n pound of but ter $1/50. Examples like thia are found nil the way through the century from Franco to Argentine Republic to warn tbo pcoplo against Hint financial heresy which would attempt to create wealth by nn net of congress. MoKiiimiAN believes a Ho wqll stuck to is aa sot vicoablo as a truth and hence ho goea on assorting that $100,000 in bonds could bo purchased in war times for $53,000. It Is faiso , but if It wore true what has that to do with the Issues of today. It has boon twenty years nt least since a United States bond wns not worth" proinlum. The argument falls to the ground as a basis of discussion today oven if its truth bo admitted for the years of the rebellion. WK do not bollovo that the ravings of tbo KVibmia volco the sentiment of the grojit body of Gorman-Americans of Omaha. The effort to commit the Ger mans to support only candidates of Gor man birth , whether they are competent or not , savors too much of clannlshnoss nnd will only intensify the fooling among Americans against foreigners. Know- nothlnglsm bos sprung from just Buoh stupid political tactics. The Gorman-Americans of this county have certainly no reason to complain of unfair treatment by nny of the parties during the present campaign. They have been accorded nominations for mayor , county treasurer nud city comp troller , city treasurer nnd one member of the school board by the two loading parties. Hut every ono of these candi dates must Htiuul or Tall upon hU own merits , nnd Gorman-Americans will bo very short-sighted If they undertake to force the Issue on the line cf nationality. DKKV ItAllltOPS OX TIIK OU/.F. Tlio question of Oeop harbors on tl Gulf of Mexico is ono of sufllclcnt in portnnco to states of the central wo nnd the southwest to bo entitled to i telligont consideration. The lost co gross appropriated $0,000,000 for n doi harbor on tlio Texas coast , nnd th will bo obtained nt Gulvcston , whlc city Is already doing an cxto BIVO export business , of which produc of the trruismlsslsslppl stales form part. The advocates of deep harbors c tlio gulf believe , however , that the rili glo port of Gnlveston will not bo sit Hulent to accommodate the common that will in courrfo of time , with the di vulupiiiont of the great western oinpln Book an outlet in that direction , nn their agitation looks to the creation < ether deep harbors at points whoi It IB known to bo practicable. Th movement does nol contemplate n vtu expenditure by the government In pn Viding what it seeks to accomplish , an this fact relieves it of what might because cause of serious opposition. The deslg of tlio promoters is to arouse populf Interest and enlist private capital In tli proposed enterprise , which the enthusiastically bollovo contains tli promise of great rewards i the not remote future. It must 1 ; granted that the arguments of the dec harbor advocates have much forco. ] is only necessary to consider what ma bo the development of the transmitis'is sippi region n quarter of a contur hence , in the light of the progress mad during the quarter of a century ! > a and to connect with thai the poasibl development of our commerce with th countries of Central and South Amoric through the operation of thocommoroi : policy that has boon inuueurntcd wit respect to these countries , to conelud that within a few years the whole Hock mountain country would find grei bonolit from having ample harbors o tlio gulf from which , to ship the prodttcl wanted by the countries south of us , re cclving in return from the same harbor : the products of those lands. It i by no moans improbable , oithct that in time there would bo pstablishoi through those gulf harbors a consider able export trade- with Europe , thoug ] the possibilities of such a commerce nr not so promising UH these with the coun tries of the southern continent. Another ether consideration in connection will the establishment of deep harbors on th gulf is the effect it would probably htiv upon the transportation problem. I is not to bo supposed that the nn tural course of traflic from oast'to wes will over bo seriously disturbed , but i is quite conceivable that with com mercinl outlets such ns the propose ) deep harbors on the gull would provid the olTect would bo moro or loss docisiv In regulating transportation rates eve the natural route of commerce. The question is a very practical ono and the manifest relation it boars to the commercial interests of the west gives i ii strong claim to the careful considora Lion of the people of this section. AND NATUltALlZATlOK Tt would perhaps have boon deslrnbli Lo got an expressionof _ the views of tht transinississippi congress on the ques tions propounded by Senator Chtindlot regarding changes in the immigration laws , and since tho- congress has fol ( jailed upon to say something on thii ftibjeet it isto bo regretted that it : Jttoranco is not moro comprehensive [ t was declared to bo the souse of tin jongross that the immigration laws bi so amended that only immigrants whc joth desire and are fitted for American : itizonship shall bo permitted to land in our shores. Tills is vague becnuso ii nukes no suggestion as to what qualill- : ations should bo necessary tb flt an inv nigrant for American citizenship. Ob viously ns to this thor.o may bo consid- jrablo diversity of opinions. Ono per ion might bo satislled with r irovision of law that the imml jrunt should simply bo able to road and vrito in his native language ; anothei night require a higher educational iunlificnt'ion , and still another miglil lomnnd that no ono should bo admitted vho could not rend the constitution ol ho United States In English. When ai : ntolligont and inlluoiitlul body like he transinississippl congress declares taolf on this subject if should ) o careful to bo explicit. The rosolu- ion regarding naturiill/.ntlon is more lollnito. It says that the naturalization aws should bo moro stringent , and that .ho . United Status courts only should ox- irciso the power of naturalization. AMth rognrd to tlio first proposition .hero . Is doubtless no difference ol pinion among Intelligent citizens , nvostlgntlon by a congressional lommlttoo Into the practice ol omo of the courts in granting natur- iliwitlon has disclosed the fact that it ins boon very loose , nnd it is not to bo loubted that the requirements of the aw have boon disregarded in thousands if cases in every portion of the country. V. great deal of this duty has boon loft o bo performed by subordinate ourt olllclals who were little onccrnod about the law , and hero has unquestionably been . great deal of fraud and knavery. This natter will receive the attention of con- Toss , and doubtless something will be .one . to make the law moro stringent ml compel a bettor observance of it. As 0 tonllnlncr naturalization to the fod- ral courts , it is a question that calls for aroful consideration. There are argu- uonts in its favor , the most Important no being that as the judges of state ourts are elective they are. 11- blo In their own interest , In cases fhuro they are candidates , to Issue laturnUzatlou papers to persons who mvo not compiled with the law. Un- iUostlonnbly this him boon dono. On ho ether hand to confine- the authority o naluraiizo to the federal courts would osult in Inconvenience to persons remote rora s.uch courts , and many such on- Itlod to cltlzoniiili ) might bo irovomod from obtaining It at a tlmo . hen It was especially desired. It tight to bo possible to surround the aturnllzAtton laws with such safeguards lint there would bo llttlo dungor of lielr being violated by either a state or idornl court. So far as the question of Immigration concerned , the utterance of tbo trans- Mississippi congress contributes roall nothing to Its solution. Tun secession of the New York Tt lime and Sun from the Now York Asst elated press and the conflict between th .Western Union Telegraph company an the remaining members of the No' ' Yo"k Associated press may In Iho vor near future hnvo fnr-ronchlng result ! Tlio controversy between the N'ow Yor Associated press nnd the Western Unlo wns brought about by the fact thntn rlvn press association had Hocurod a lower rat for transmitting its dispatches tha had boon accorded to it. The wltli drawn I of the Tribune and Sun from th association precipitated an open ruji two nnd the telegraph company sue cccded In forcing payment of its tils puled claim by cutting out the Assoc ! atcd press wires. This , however , i only the forerunner of the Irroprosslbl conllict that must sooner or later rosul in tha emancipation of the press froti the arbitrary domlnltlon of lologrnpl companies. The members of the Asso elated press will either bo compelloi lo build , equip and oporalo Iholr owi wires between the great news contorfl.oi unite In favor of the establish mcnt of tlio postal telegraph It goes without saying that i concerted effort on the part of the asso elated telegraph in favor of government ownership of telegraph lines will givi the demand for postal telegraph sitlll- cicnt momentum to insure its passage through congress at no distant day. - EVEKY taxpayer in the comity li vitally concerned In the board of com missioners. Unfortunately only the voters of the First. Second and Seventh wards will have a voice in the selection of the next commissioner. As between Judge Stonborg and Owen Slnvon those voters cannot hesitate. Mr. Slavon la totally unfitted for the discharge of the responsible duties of commissioner. Hit career of a term in the city , council does not commend him as a man who ha ; either the ability or stamina to admin ister the business of the property own urs of this county. Morenrty and Elsassor nn th'o commitloo appointed by the citj council lo confer with tlio county com missonors and Board of Education rela tive to the appointment of judges and clerks of election. Why throe demo- crate were appointed to this committee is problematic. At least ono ropublicat should have been accorded n voice ir this committee. The fact that repub licans were excluded would indicate thai there is some scheme on hand to manip ulate the ballot boxes. AN advertisement in tlio San Fran cisco Examiner runs ns follows : UOODLti , HOODLK , NOODLE. Some are born boodlers. Some achieve- boodle through nefar ious schemes. Some have boodle thrust upon thorn while serving.as members of the citj council. The advertisement might bo attrac tive In Omaha newspapers also. THE only objection BO far raised to Mr. Bemis is that ho wears good clothes and does not fraternize with ward heel ers. This may bo a very serious defect in the eyes of the riff-raff , but sensible people will scarcely fall in with thia idea. Sockless Simpson worked bis way into congress because ho never used soap and had n patch put on the seat of his trousers. But that style of a man would hardly bo n good model for a mayor of a city like Omaha. Mis. GEOHGK A. BENNETT , republi can candidate for sheriff , is vouched for by the best men in this city as ono of our most intelligent mechanics. Ho is plucky , steady and in every way well fitted for the place. His character is unassailable. If ho had boon sheriff there is no question but what every prisoner in our jail , no matter what his crime , would have been protected from mob violence. WHKN a representativeGorman - American presents himself as a candi date fpr the office of mayor no rational person will oppose him because ho was born on German soil. But the proposi tion to consolidate the Gorman vote upon a man who is totally unfit for the place , just because ho i = a native of Ger many is utterly indefensible. ASSISTANT COUONKH ALLISON will bo well advertised in tlio eastern press on ac count of his export testimony to the effect that a man whoso nock was broken in two places and who was choked , trampled upon and beaten by a mob of several hundred , actually died of fright. The Chicago newspapers are very sar castic In their comments. Mu. TlENUY BOLLN , the republican candidate for city treasurer , Is thor oughly qualified for the position. As treasurer of this county ho proved hiin- * elf capable nnd reliable. His standing In this community is deservedly high ixnd his candidacy Ins mot with favor from men of all parties. MK. GKOIKIK P. BEMIS has boon sailed away from Omaha on business in which the people of this city are largely interested. Ills absence should' , how- ivor , in no way diminish the interest In 'the mayoralty contest. Mr. Bmnls will bo the next mayor of OmahiiAinless all signs fall. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ THE arrest of Christian Spooht upon i charge of assault will not disprove- his jhargos that boodle- was used in secur ing the furniture contract. .

"No , I hnvo not given up my light fo postal telegraph , " said Postmaster Uonon Wnnnmnknr , In talking today about the dli ruptloti.4 in the Press associations , "On tl contraryt" continued ho , "I intend to pus postal telegraph with all my power , fnr I ni confident that It will bo n good thing f < everybody nnd bollovo the present Prcs association change * will help tha fight , 1 has been n mystery to mo why the press a1 soclatlons and the bulk of the great nowspr pors In them antagonize postal toloirraphv. presume , of course , they got very satlsfni tory deferential rates of toll from tli Western Union Telegraph coinpnni but It ts proposed to glvo thoi deferential rates under n system c telegraph controlled by the Postolllco dopar mont for the people. I contend that with tli machinery of the Postolllco department II ofllco room , mall and special delivery , unrr ors a telegraph service can bo given th people which will be as good , If not bottci than is now afforded at one-half the preset ] tariffs. Is it not fair to presume thn with half the facilities already acquired , fo furnishing n telegraph service , this can b done when you take Into consideration th fact that good dividends arc paid on slo ? watered so as to represent twlco the actua Investment of capital ! The newspaper would support the measure offered In who will bo an amended postal telegraph bll If they only had confidence In the ability o the government to maKe u success of It , nm I am constrained to believe the trouble lie In a lack of ability of the government ti manage ns well as a corporation. So far a differential rates are concerned to tnce the demands of capital invested. I thiul a sliding scale should uo provided whorou ; the largest customers ought to receive th' lowest rates , ns the very lilo of our press as soclatlons depends upon differential rates. understand , of course , that the object It newspaper * associating thomsnlvos togethe : is to get advantage In news gathering am transmission. If it was not for thn wo never would have had groa newspapers or press associations. It couli bo arranged or provided under u postal tola graph law that discretionary powers fo ; making differential rates should bo vested it certain ofllcors , nnd thus the demands of tin press could bo mot fully. At present tui masses pay dividends o stock watered nt leas' ' 100 per cent. Now if the government could run the telegraph wo would have to pay in dlvldond , there would ho no watered stock everybody could got much lower rates , am the press would bo taken caroof fully as well If not bettor , than at present. I nm in hope ; that the dissolution of press companies ant the examinations which are being made intc press contracts will demonstrate to the newspapur proprietors ns well as the reader : what I know now that there is no use ol anybody paying present rates when they can bo so much cheaper without injury to anj one. An incident In connection "with mv business at Philadelphia occurred no'l long ago which shows pretty well the principle I am trying to illustrate. A telegraph company wanted to put a branch ofllco into my store. It offered mo 25 per cent of the gross receipts. I told the manag ers that they could put their ofllco In and bo welcome if they would glvo the 25 per cent reduction to these who patronized thoaftlcoln mystoroand glvomonothing. They refused to do it because they said it would "bo making differential rates. They were willing to give mo the per cent , but not the people , and so It noes. There is nothing given to the advan tage of the common people. It all goes to those who do not want it. It Is my ambition to glvo the people service at half the present rr.tes , Including newspapers ; to make the free delivery - livery of mail universal in all thickly popu lated communities , country ns well as city , nd to see newspapers nnd literary publica tions go free through the mails. ' I want to joe this the loading country of the world In ill that makes intelligence ! culture and en terprise , nnd , do you believe mo , I expect to ioe this all in n very short time. J. E.
