TUB nmii or mon who stand In the wity of public improvomonta In Oranha 1 thts summer are goinp to bo kicked out of the way. Stick n pin thoro.

GiiNKUATj ALonit lias ilttcd up regal headquarters at Minneapolis. Any ono who thinks for a moment that Algcr hasn't a presidential boo will find on visiting his apartments that ho has an entire apiary. SlNCi : the conference baa adjourned Onjnha clti/ons may now refrain from greeting each other as "brother" so- and-so. Wo now may drop Dack to'our old familiar terms of "colonel , " ' major" and "parlnor. " Tin ; most discouraging thing that has boon said about Mr. Cleveland lately is the statement from Mississippi that ho could nol carry that state If nominated. This is about equivalent to saying that the Dutch could not carry Holland. ENGLAND Is drifting far nway from her staid commercial views. Salisbury's Bpooch on free trade Is followed by the jiows of the great work of the Bimo- tnllio league , composed of bankers and commercial men all ever the country. IT IS a matter of great satisfaction to Icnow that the court business of this city is being so oxpcdltoly and satisfactorily conducted. Now why other public bus iness cannot progress as well is an enig ma. Lot the example of the courts bo followed. WHY all this unsoo'mly raving about n union depot horoV There is a line union depot at Council BlulTs and a poverty-stricken concern like a railroad can't afford to build a depot every few miles. If you want a union depot go ever to Council Bluffs. A LIEUTENANT in the Gorman army has boon arrested for kicking a private Boldlor. Wo shall presently "hoar that an American policeman will bo brought to book for boating innocent ami help less people as a moans , of showing his authority. Those are progressive timoa Tins Presbyterian gnnoral assembly lias referred the question of revision back to the presbyteries. This is a sly but ptalo resort. There never has boon tv general assembly , synod , conference , court or sanhodrin which hasn't at tempted to escape responsibility when ever it could do so. Tin : very unique plan of Dr. Rains- ford of Now York to provide drinking Dhiooa for the poor is exciting great comment and discussion. Three news papers of the metropolis openly endorse It and but ono openly opposes It. There IB In It an element of sense in its pro posal to make good out of evil , but who is to furnish tlio soap ? TIIKIU : are now about 110,000 Chlnoso ( n this country entitled to registry under the exclusion act. The not provides for the payment of a foe of $1 to collectors of intern.tl revenue for each cortlilcato Issued , but as thuro is no appropriation under which the payment of such fees may bo inado Secretary Foator says that the work must bo dona by salaried sub ordinates. This will cut down the profits of internal revenue collectors in some localities. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ALLAN ROOT is opposed to the Ne braska Central. That will not surprise nnybody who knoxvs Allan Root. The inoHsbaclcs are all agalnut every projoot that IK ilubto to promote the growth of this city. Root is willing , however , to Bharo the increase in tlio valun of lands mid lots by the enterprise of people who tire wldo nwako and who are willing to risk all they huvo and all they oan bor row in building' up the town. ACTING UNION PACIFIC ASSESSOR KliitKNi'i-'OHT has a mission to perform which is as delicate as it is dlllloult. JIt has assumed the role of legal expounder - pounder , and slyly whispers to the credulous pcoplo of his acquaintance that the conditions of the Nobrnska Contrul twiil proposition cannot bo un forced against the company. Thuro is a fJoruian udngo that Khronpfort should I/cod ; fHliooinuker stick to thy last. " U good authority on fence and logrolling , but what ho Ituuw about law would till aovorul TJIKV J3XKKIBTMI' THL'STt Four weeks ago the republicans of South Dakota , through their state con vention , Instructed nnd pledged the del egated chosen to represent that state nt Mlnooao'pHa to vote and work for the ro- nomination of Banjamln Harrison. And now Senator Potttgrow , the hoitrt of the South Dakota delegation , haa publicly w announced that his own vote and that of the whole South Dakota delegation will bo cast for James G. Blatno on the first ballot. Mr. Pottlgrow Is quoted as suy- ing : It Is true that South Dakota Is Instructed for Harrison , hut It li equally true thnt thl * wn < done with the unilomtamllnathat Ulalnu win not u candidate. South Dakota Is un- quostlonuhlv n Blnlno stnto. It tins iloclnrcil for Hlalim nt ovor.v convention slnco It bo- cnmn n stUo. : Kvcry mno , woman and child is for Hlama. Jf such tv Hop was attempted or pro posed by it carpet bag delegate from South Carolina or Arkansas , where pol Itlcal morals nro at a low ebb and dele gates to national conventions consider U no dishonor to oll'or tholr votes to the hichcst bidder , nobody would bo stn- prlscd. But Senator Pottlgrow ropro- Beats an Intelligent , and high-minded constituency. What right has ho , of all others , to repudiate the pledges of his party , and what right has ho to ad vertise his colleagues on the delegation as committed with himself to an infam ous botrnyal of the trust reposed In them. How can Mr. Pottigrcw , or nny other man , acting In a representative capacity , absolve himself from the obll- . gallon that rests upon him under the unwritten law which no honest or hon orable mnn would ever dare violate late ? What evidence hits Mr. Pottl grow that the republicans of South Dakota have changed tholr minds within thirty days , nnd when has ho had any chance to canvass tholr views nnd consult their wishes ? Where is there any evidence that South Dakota republicans think less of Harrison today than they did when they voted the in structions to their delegates to support him as their choice ? When did the re publicans of South Dakota ever vole for Blaine , and since when hnvo they ascer tained that Blaine is a candidate ? South U.ikola has never voted fo" Blaine and has never had a chance to vote for him for president. She would not bo a state .today had it not boon for Harrison , and Pottigrow would today bo practicing law in Sioux Falls instead of holding a scat in the United States somite. Mr. Elaine is doubtless very popular in South Da- Kola , but if every man , woman and child was ro.illy for him Mr. Potligrow and the delegation from South Dakota have no moans of knowing that fact and are in honor bound to live up to their obli gations as expressed in the resolutions of the convention that elected thorn. If they do anything else they will deserve to be branded as a brace of political traitors and arrant knaves. The effects of the course which Rr. Pottigrow has outlined .for himself nnd his associates are far-reaching and will seriously imperil the chance of swing ing South Dakota buck into the repub lican column this fall. In South Dtikota , as in Nobrnsklt , the party can only hope to regain supremacy this year by inspiring conlidenco that the pledges made by its conventions will bo honestly lived up to by its candidates. Suppose that when Pettigrow's term was about to expire the republican county conventions should pledge candidates for the legislature to vote for his ro-oloction. What would ho think of any member of the legislature elected squarely on that issue who would repudiate his instructions to support Pettigrew on the plea that another man who was not a candidate before the election is , in his opinion , moro popular. Would not such conduct justly bo denounced by Senator Potti grow and his supporters as Infamous ? Does Mr. Poltigrow propose to BOW the wind at Minneapolis in Juno to lot the party reap the whirlwind in South Dakota in November ? Incidentally wo may as well correct Mr. Pottigrow's libels on the Nebraska delegation to Minneapolis , which ho is credited with representing as hopelessly divided on the presidential issue. Euch and every member of the Nebraska dele gation to Minneapolis is instructed for Harrison and it is a calumny to repre sent thorn or any one of tliom as dis posed to become recreant to their trus : , whatever any ether instructed delega tion east or west may do. TllK AKTl-SNAl' GOXVKXT10N. The devoted followers of Grover Cleve land in the state of Now York will bo- begin to assemble in Syracuse today for the anti-Hill convoutlon tlyit is to taico place tomorrow. It has boon freely pro- dieted that tlio movement would dlo for want of nourishment bofor'j the arrival of the day sot for-tho convention , but it still lives and there is iv prospect that the protesting democrats will fully carry out tholr plans. So far as Now York city Is concerned the convention will bo a representative ono. Every ono of the twenty-four assembly districts in the city bus cho.ion delegates and the number of.votcs polled at the primaries exceeded the oxpootatlons of the pro- motord of the movement , reaching a llguio nearly double that of tlio miil- wlntor snan-convcntlon primaries. Con sidering the absolute sway of Tammany in nearly ovor.v district in tbo city It is surpfliiing that the Cleveland managers in Now York , most of them unaccus tomed to caucus work , uhould have buon able to poll a vote largur than that usually polled for the regular conven tions of the party. But while a full and really formidable representation has boon Bccurod In tlio olty the representa tion from the country dUtrlcU will bo rather s'at luring. The primaries throughout the Btnto have been thinly attended and in many cases they have fallen through altogether. Thla Is probably duo to linpurfoct organization , for thuro U plenty ot anti-Hill sentiment in the rural districts of the stato. The resolutions to bo submitted at Syracuse have boon prepared by ox- Sooiotary Fnlrohlld and E. Ellory An- doreon. They will Hot forth at length the reasons for the protest against the snap convention nnd the various onuses of complaint against the Hill nviohlno , and will atrongly endorse the Cleveland administration. Judging by the freedom with which the Cleveland men lu Now York have condemned the tactics of Hill the resolutions nnd speeches nl Syracuse will bo Inlcroijilng. But it Is significant that the provisional coininltloo which has the work in hand announces that the action of the convention will not take the form of nn attack upon Hill , but only upon HilUstn. This accords very Well w'th ' seine other indications of hedging that have boon nottcoiblo of Into on the part of the anti-Hill poo- pi o in Wow York. They will condemn Iho theft and not the thief. C\ti : it bo possible that the Cleveland men nro afraid of the recoil of this murderous gun which they luwc so deliberately loaded nnd leveled at the Idol ot Tam many ? It begins to look that way. Mr. Olovotand has lately boon reported about ready to disclaim nil sympathy with the movement , In obedience to the wishes of his most influential friends In ether states. Ex-Secretary Whitney , who Is ono of the closest friends of the ox-presidont , roftiaod positively to pre side ever the Syracuse convention , and oven snid that ho was nol in any way Identified with the .movement. But U Is too Into now to avert the calamity. Whatever damage the anti-Hill men are capable of doing to democratic prospects will have boon done when they have sent a contesting delegation to Chicago from the ono Btnto of all others which the party cannot alTord to lose. AKOT1IEH GHISIS LV ITALY. The resignation of Slgnor Giolottl , who recently succeeded Crlspi us prime minister of Italy , has thrown that coun try into another political torment. The causes leading to his resignation are the same that have boon at work for aomo time among the Italian people. The expensive policy of the government has alarmed the people and tltoy .aro clam oring for relief from the burdens which they have long boon forced to boar. Italy has boon driven very near to the verge of bankruptcy by n policy that has not boon gauged to correspond with her re sources , and the people fool that it is time to cull a halt. Popular pride would sustain liberal expenditures on Iho army and navy if iho country could stand the increasing drain which that involves , but tlio Italian people are not rich enough to afford the luxury. The position of Italy in relation to ether European powers is such that King Humbert ia able to justify his nosiiion so far as the logic of the situation is concerned - corned , but the people point to a de pleted treasury and their own depleted pockets nnd say that logic falls when the limit of the possible has boon reached. Whether the popular dissatisfaction will nssuino such proportions as to force the king to yield and modify a policy that is proving too magnificent for the limited means of Italy is a question tha will interest Europe. If the chamber Is dissolved in consequence of the resigna tion of Giolottl , the ensuing elections will have an immediate influence in de termining this question , for it will give the pcoplo a chunco to make tholr wishes known. A revolution in Italy is be lieved to bo wlthin.tho possibilities of the near future , but it may bo averted by conciliatory measures on the part of the government Meantime the burdened pcoplo of thnt sunny land will doubtless continue to seek relief by emigrating to America. TUK INDUSTRIAL EXPOSITION. Although the Nebraska manufacturers' exposition will not open until Juno 11 , nearly half a month. hence , there is great activity at the Coliseum' and many of the exhibitors are already busily en caged in the work of arranging the arti cles to which they will invite the at tention of visitors. There is every pros pect that this first exposition under tlio auspices of the Manufacturers and Con sumers association will by far exceed the expectations of its projectors. Every foot of space in the old building has boon taken and it is probable that the annex , now about completed , will bo nearly all occupied. The manufactur ers of the state generally , and oven these of Omaha , who have had great confidence in the success of the undor- taklng , are surprised at the wide interest that has been nwakonod not only in No brnska but in other statos. Many appli cations for space have lately been re ceived from outside manufacturers , but as the scope of the present plans does not extend beyond the borders of this state such applications have necessarily been rejected. Over 120 exhibitors nro already on the list and the number will doubtless bo considerably increased before - fore the exposition is oponod. Although the objects and the advan tages to bo derived from the series of expositions of which this will bo the first have been extensively sot forth in the columns of Tim BKH , there are many manufacturers and dealers who have only just begun to roullzo bow wide nn influence may thereby bo ex erted for" the promotion of the indun- tiics in which they are interested. Nol a few who had already taken the space which they thought they would require , have "Within the past few days boon clamoring for moro room in which to display tholr wares. This is a good sign. Competition Is the llfo of busi ness , nnd competition among the expo sition exhibitors will tend to make tills institution a moans for the development of manufacturing and trade interests in Nebraska. The exposition Is certain to bo a success and a source of , ad vantage to the people of the Btnto at largo. A Mammoth Uponlnc for Uoulil.

Now York World : The clear , logical and forcible rooly of Gladstone to Salisbury Is n remarkable ptoductlon , chiefly bccauio it does uol ( jlvo n alngloVlpn or evidence of nn ; of the weaknesses of old ago. It is an other convincing reminder that ngo has not withered anv of these faculties which make the grand old man easily iho llrst of living English statesmen. Boston Globe : With all Iho cloquonco ana courugu of his palmiest duvs , Iho "grand old man" came gnllar.lly to the defense of thn riehts of Ireland In 'tho preat nnrllnmentary battle over the Balfour bill. Well mlphl Mr. Gladstone hold up to rldioulo and contempt a mousuro in which , as ho said , everything good in previous legislation concerning Ire land has been loft oui , nnd everything bad inserted. Springfield ( Mass. ) Republican : U loolss ns though Lord Salisbury nnd Mr. Balfour huvo got their followers well In hand to pass iho Irish local government bill. Party dis cipline probably accounts for Ihls so far ns iho lories are concerned and the unionists , vill vole for It to prevent ti government de feat , which would bo a victory lor Mr. Ulad- " stono. They would swallow n"wor o measure than this before they would lol Mr. Glnd- stone score tiny sorl'ol a victory ou iho Irisa quoslion. Minneapolis Journal : Mr. Gladstone made n strong speech against ihn Bnlfour Irish government bill , but the Irrational measure wont to Its second reading by a stiff tory ina- lorlty. It will bo n failure if It is given statutory off eel because , Hlto other Irlslf re form bills , il treats Ireland as un alien quar ter section which has to bo distrusted nnd kept in subjection. Gladstone demands equality for nil parts of tbo United Kingdom nnd until that is given there will bo an ugly Irish question to monopolize iho time of par liament. Now York Tribune : Tno consorvalivos have nol succeeded by their six-years' cam paign In wearing out Mr. Gladstono. Ho re mains Iho greatest Englishman of bis limn , with resources of intellectual and debating power and with a n6iUcal ! authority ever bis countrymen unrlvnllCd in this generation. If any statesman can Affect the settlement of the Irish questionbo cau do it ; and if ho fails , ihcro Is npl another Englishman in public llfo who will'havo the courage and patience to undertake it. The Irish people alona can defeat himif ho returns' to power ; and Ibis Ihoy will d6 if ihoy ncsrlect to sup- pnrl Iho most gent-rips and powerful cham pion they have WGr bad among English statesmen. , t Chicago Tribune : , Balfour will bavo trouble with Ibo blll tiowovor , In the com mit too stage. Mr. 'Hoaly and tbo brighl mon of the Irish party \ylll attack every line and clause of It. They Will find-justification for their action in the 'scathing ' denunciation of Ibo bill by Mr. Gladstone , as well as in tbo former utterances of Chamberlain , Churchill and Harrington. dTho session- therefore , Is likely to bo prolongad , boyoud the Orange men's July holidays - and tho"dlssolution may nottgko place , tuxUl' autumn. Of Iho trumpery character of the bill there Is no question , but if it becomes law there is no uoubl that the nationalist maloritv in Ire land will utilize it to further its demands for narliamcntary homo rule. In the incautlmo Mr. Gladstone's argument in favor of homo rule , based on Iho inequality nnd injustice of the measure , will do duty In England ana in Scotland. Philadelphia 1'ross : Mr. Gladstone's speech ucon the Irish local government bill has its chief and only importance because it comes nearer lo statinir tbo present position of iho liberal leader Iban any othoi of bis utterances for months past. It does this only by inference. Mr. Gladstone has long in sisted thnt tbo best course for him to take upon Iho Irish question was to refuse to glva details as to his plans. Ho has declined , to use a familiar liberal phrase , to break the co-g of homo rule In order to show what was in it before It was hatched by a general election. Mr. Gladstone has oven avoided a speech on Mr. Balfour's Irish local govern ment bill. Tbo bill fell so dead on its firdl uiKbt that this wo * scarcely necessary ; hut now that an election is near Mr. Gladstone unbeiitallncly declares thai no measure caner or ought to satisfy Ireland which does not rocogn'zo ' tbo unily of the kingdom and give a popular local self-control of lu affairs lo its voters. o JFASIUOXS JfUll JIEX.
