clining years with this Hiiit , General
Banks did not prollt by the money in
question. A deputy was indicted for its

It would bo better to send the deputy to
the penitentiary and balance the books
of General Br.nks. The general , after a

Tun republicans of the Ohio legisla

his election , or a citizen of Now York.

People must not bo surprised at find
ing many familiar names on this board.
One of its chief objects , as before re
marked in tliodit columns , is to perpetu
ate itself and promote the interests of
its members. Agricultural development
is a secondary consideration.
Congressman Roger Q. Mills has done
what he was expected to do. Ho has
notified the speaker of the houno that
ho will not serve as chairman of the
committee on interstate and foreign
commerce. This is one of the best com
mittees of the house , affording opportu
nity for useful and creditable work to a
man of moderate ambition. But Mr.
Mills has boon chairman of the loading
committee of the house , th it of ways
and means , and having declined the
second place on that cjininittou in this
congress it was obviously unreasonable
to sunpose that he would accept a pon-
tlon doomed to bo inferior. The speaker
doubtless did the bast h'j could in the
circumstances to givn the Texas st-itos-
man prominence among the committee
chairmanships , but his olTort Is not ap-
proci-itcd. Mr. Mills prefers to bo in
the ranks , where ho will bo under no
obligations to Speaker Crisp and his
immediate -io.i f I i ani o in nvik o matters -
tors as interesting for them as opportu
nity and his peculiar tomporamsnt may
Mr. Mills resigned his chatrmxnship
after duu deliberation , and taken in con
nection with his recent utterances the
action cannot bo regarded as having no
significance . Ho lias very recently in
dicated lhat'ho is not in favor of giving
the country tarilT revision in iiibtall-
ments , as' Mr. Springer proposes shall
bo donn. Ho believes it to bo the duty
of the democrats in the house to make a
general revision of the tariff , regardless
of the question whether a mo isuro of
this kind would pass tlio senate. Mr.
Mills does not think it goad policy for
the democracy to tompori/o or employ
makeshifts in this matter , and ho evi
dently intends not to bo a party to such
a policy. It is therefore to bo presumed
that when the proper time comes Mr.
Mills wllldoclaro himself in tills matter
in no uncertain terms , and it is not un
likely in tiiat event that he will bo
found to have a pretty strong following. .
There is another matter regarding
which Mr , Mills is not in sympathy with
the dominant element of ills party in the
liouso. Ho thinks the democracy should
for the present drop the question of the
frco coinage of silver , while the'coin-
ago committee is already practically com
mitted in favorof reporting a free coinage
measure. On this subject it is to bo expected -
poctod that Mr. Mills will also have
something positive to say at the right
In short , the Texas congressman has
a policy of his own which ho docs not
into nil to surrender without a contest ,
and his best vantage ground for making
a light will bo in the ranks. Ho would
bo handicapped as the recipient ot any
consideration from the element Unit
compassed his defeat for the spoaxer-

livery respectable and law-abiding
cili/onof Omaha will concede that the
olTorts of ox-Assistant City Attorney
Shoemaker to enforce the laws-and
ordinances against the sale of obscene
papers are commendable. Whatever
mav be the outcome of the court pro
ceedings to punish Mr. Shoemaker for

ity is in favor of the suppression of
filthy papers that thrive on scandal and
pander to the depraved appatlto of people

I'llOl'USKD If Kir S
Bills have boon introduced in congress
to confer statehood on the territories of
Now Mexico , Utah and Oklahom.i , and
doubtless Arizona will receive like con-
Hidoration. Whit the chances are for
the admission of any of these territories
by the present congress cannot now bo
determined , but it will bo interesting to
consider whut claims they present for
The last coiisus gave Now Moxlco a
population ol lo' OOO , and it is doubtless
somewhat larger now. The last report
of tbo governor undo a very good show
ing in regard to material development.
The agricultural interest is growing ,
the mining industry is increasing , anil
in ether respects the territory Is realiz
ing a steady progress. But th'o objec
tion remains that the papul.vtion is
largely made up of people essentially
nlion in their ch.inictor and sympathies ,
and if it bo admitted that the resources
are sufllciont to maintain a state govern
ment there is still the question whether
the people as a whole could sa'foly bo
loft to govern themselves. A constitu
tion was submitted to thorn in 1890
which was defeated by a largo majority ,
and although the governor explains
that this w.is duo to party dilTuronuos ,
and was not , the result of a disinclina
tion to assume the condition ot state
hood , still It was an tin favorable indica
tion ot pooolar sontimonc in the matter
for which tno alien element of the popu
lation was doubtless mainly responsible.
Until this element shallTjocomo so small
a minority as to bo incapable of mischief
the expediency of conferring statehood
on Now Mexico will bo questionable.
Utah's population , by the cousus of
1890 , was close to 208,000 , and the gov
ernor's report for 1801 placid It at
nearly 211,000. The assessed value of
property , real and personal , In 18' ) ! waj
In round numbars $121,000,00 ; ) . BjtQ as
to population and rosourcas Utah has an
unquestionable claim to statehood , and
the only otut'iolo in the w.vy of attain
ing it is the political influence still ox-
orctsod by the Marmo.i church. This ,
however , is stoadilydo llnln , andtherj
Is every reason to cxpoct that within
the next year or two these who are can-
trolled in their political action by the
church will bo in a minority. Indeed
there is now no distinctively Mormon
party , that organization having db-
b.mded previous to the last election for
the legislative assembly , many of its
members uniting with the republican
and democratic parties. While this lias
boon regarded as u ruse of the church
loaders in tlio intoro.-lt of statohoo.l , and
the Utah commission inclined to this
view , the governor and others in a favorable -
vorablo position to judge hive , ex
pressed the opinion that it w.is done in
good faith.
The growth of Oklahoma , the young
est of the territories and the smallest in
area , has boon phenomenal. The last ,
report of the governor estimated the
population to bo 80,000 , and this is
probably not far out oi the way. Great
progress has boon made in agricultural
development , anil tlio paoplo of the ter
ritory are of the most enterprising
character. But Oiclahoma nan w.tit a
few years for statehood without injury
to its material wolf aro.
Arizona has a population of between
00,000 and 70,000 , andas nearly all of
the public lands of the territory are
arid , tlio advance in population is certain , -
tain to bo slow. There are largo undo-
volopcd resources , but under present
conditions it is questionable whether a
state government could uo properly
It thus appears that Utah alone Is able
to praBont an entirely satisfactory claim ,
so far as population and developed resources -
sources are concerned , to statehood , and
there is really no valid reason against
tlio admission of'that tpriltqry.
Tun Fifth Ward Taxpayers' club oh-
jects to the proposed sale and lease of

have the taxpayers of the Fifth ward to

Why didn't they protest against the sale
and loiiho of the Millard hotol. They
had just as much right to object to the
transfer of the hotel property as they
liavo to any othtir property In which
they have no share , and for which they

rotary of t ho i treasury for an explana
tion of Ills CUUMO regarding the ! } per
cent bonds , a part of which wore con
tinued nt a Tell u cod rate of interest.
The socrollir&.jjs asked whether there
was suniclontjjnonoy In the treasury to
pay the bonds when duo , and , If so'tipon
what authority" ho continued any of
thorn. Socmlflry Foster repeatedly
stated that ha. could pay the bonds and
ho fully explained in his annual paper
why ho did notyo so. It was to avoid n
serious disturbance of the llnaneos of
the country ut.Mhno when its resources
are severely 1'ixod by the movement of
agrlculttir.il products. In the desire to
avoid monetary disturbance during this
critical period , says the secretary in his
report , and In the hope that the volume
of money in circulation might bo In
creased at an opportune tlmo , through
the co-operation of the banks , the hold
ers of the bonds wore olTorod tholr
choice of presenting thorn for redemp
tion or for continuance at the pleasure
of tlio government at a loss rate of in-
toro.st. This was manifestly justified by
the financial conditions then existing ,
and the authority for it is In the terms
of the act under which the bonds were
issued. It also had the support of pro-
ccdont , Secretary Windoin having in
1881 continued the 6 per cent bonds
without any question as to the legality
of his action. It is not to bo doubted
that Secretary Foster will give the
house the information it asks for with
entire satisfaction to the country , If not
to the majority of that body.
Ml LUNG in transit rates can bo
secured for Omaha when the railroads
of the state demand the concession from
their eastern connections. This talk
about the question being one of inter
state transportation and therefore dilli-
cult of solution IsinsulTorablo rot. When
the B. & M. in Nebraska wants a con
cession from tlio Chicago , Burlington &
Quincy , it has no difllculty In aocu ing
it. When the Union Pacific demands
any reasonable favor from the North
western the latter ro.id is not at all
likely to ignore that demand. If the
local roads will do their part the mill
ing in transit rates will bo immediately
agreed to.

was filled with notable pcnonngov repre

Tim soniborness of thu black drnnings were
heightened by the black fog , and it appeared
us though nature mourned the loss of one so
good nnd great. Hundreds of wax tapers
and gas jots shed their light on thu solemn
scene , nnd during curtain portions of thn
service the clcrgv nnd the sisters in attend
nnce lighted additional tnpors on either side
of the sanctuary. The whole scuno was
altogether n most striking and Imorcssivo

500 priests , marching two by two , entered
the oratory from behind the funeral hangings
under the dome. The bishops who led the
procession were tholr mitres and were richly
robed. Tuoro were present , also , represent

carrying an unllghtcd taper.
Enormous crowds followed the cortege
from the oratory to the cemetery. Special

Output Kor Mm Week Killing Trlco * In
MiN.vi'.U'Oi.is , Minn. , Jan. ! ! l. The North
western Miller says : The Hour output last
week decreased slightly from that of tlio
week before. The production was 17:1.1-1,7 :
barrels averaging USj57 ! barrels daily
against 178,870 barrels forttio previous week ,
115.000 barrels for the corresponding time In
IS'.ll ' , nnd US..HO barrels in 1800. Tlioro has
been a material change In tha operative situ
ation on thn falls since last week , and ttiu
output this week will be heavily reduced
Three mills of one largo company , represent
ing a daily product of o/er 4,500 barrels ,
have been shut down , for the week M least ,
on account of poor markets.
The present output Is ' probably not over
25,0JO ( oarrols , and it Is doubtful if the aver-
acre six days of this week will reach that
figure. Tno extreme cold weather of Iho past
week has reduced the supply of water to thu
minimum , and only four mills two small
and two largo ones- are trying to use it for
power at all.
JThoro has been rather nn Improved de
mand for ( lour during the week ondinu
Wednesday. Most nulling llrms report
enough fresh sales to absorb thu greater part
of tholr product for thn snmo time. The best
business has como from domestic markets ,
there having boon too fnio buying of patents
on upturns of the wheat markot. A few par
ties report a moderate trade , but the greater
number complain that bids are so low that
they cannot bo accepted.
Cables came In freely Tuesday and
Wednesday showing a sharp interest , but
they were usually too low to accept. Bakers'
and low grades are still hard to move and are
being moro or loss consigned.
Prices at Minneapolis have shrunken some
during the week , though higher wheat in the <
past two days has made millers disposed to
ask for an advnnco. Bakers' and low gradni
for export are offered at about 1 .shilling less
than u week ago.
Direct exports of ( lour for the week wrro
8'2'lSO barrels against 78t > 00 barrels the pro-
cod ing week.
