NIOIIK'S tipothcosizcd emotion goes glimmering in the realms of metaphor. The sphin.xliko Phcubo Cousins shod genuine tctirs when the board of lady fair inanngofH wept on Thursday. TUB news of the long continued drouth in European grain producing districts , together with tlio prospect of tv slightly diminished crop in this country , point to an era of higher prices for Nebraska products. THAT Ignaco J. 1'adorowskl carried nwny with him something in the neigh borhood of 8200,000 when ho Bailed for Purls on Saturday , may 1)0 some recom pense for the dirty triek of the Chicago manufacturers. TUB impeached state ollleials are no longer counting upon n triumphant vindication from the charges against thorn. Tlioy will now bo satisfied if they can escape removal from ofllco by resort to legal technicalities. TUB World's fair management has designated Juno 8 as Nebraska day. Now lot the railroad companies give the poo- pie of this state a rate to Chicago and return which will insure a suoessful celebration of the day by Nebraska poo- plo. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ TUB Illinois legislature is about to ndjourn , and , us is usually the case in all similar bodies , the committees' desks are stuffed with the multifarious tele phone , gas and electric lighting and other corporation bills introduced in either house during tlio session and thus finally disposed of. A QIIAVI : responsibility will rest upon Nebraska's htato ollleials in the matter of the sale of the Saline lands as pro vided by tlio act of tlio last legislature. The lands in question are the most valu able now owned by the state and proper stops should bo taken to see that a fair price ia obtained for them. AHOUT every day for three weeks the Washington reporter of a Lincoln paper has stated , afllrmed , reiterated and in sisted that Secretary Morton controls the ofllciul patronage of Nebraska. 1 ; the claim is true , why is it necessary to inako it incessantly , and who cures whether it bo true or not ? It has whiskers. PKESIDKXT CLKVK AN'O complains that his time is almost entirely occupied in listening to applications for olllco which htivo boon "bewildering in volume , perplexing and exhausting in their iteration and imponsibleof remem brance. " Euclid Martin and the con tending factions from Nebraska evi dently have much to answer for. TUB people of Nebraska euro very little - tlo whether tlio suit , against ex-State Treasurer Hill and his bondsmen is prosecuted in Douglas or Lancaster county. They are , however , very nuum interested in the attempt of Governor Crounso to recover the quarter of a mil lion of tlio state's money lost in the col lapse of the Capital National bank. CONOIIKSSMAX UHYAI and the other free silver patriots who are endeavoring to propagate a now species of democracy in Nebraska are receiving little counte nance and less comfort from the admin istration. If there is to bo a recasting of democratic principles in the north western states , the president is evidently determined to superintend the work in person. WK hope that the question as to who , among loading democrats , 1ms most In- lluouco at the white hotifo , will soon bi : determined. The situation must be onv barrassing to olllco seekers. If one ties up with the Morton-Castor faction ho IE likely to meet with opposition from the other side , nnd vlco versa. In behalf ol harmony and a united democracy we plead for a cessation of horse play. II lias become painful. TUB supervisors of San Bernardino county , California , have resorted to n novel , and what will doubtless prove 11 rather unpopular device , to protect the forests and water supply. The doprodn- tionsofsheop is the evil against which they seek to guard. An ordinance has boon adopted imposing a license tax ol $500 for the ilrst 5,000animals , and SoO pot thousand above that number. However effectual this may prove In saving the young trees and protecting the streams from contamination , it will probably as effectually put an end to the sheep Ing industry in that region. NKltllASKA. DAY AT THK FAW. Juno 8 has boon designated by the World's fair management as Nebraska day. Doforo that tlmo the exhibit of .hlsfltato will be In perfect shnpo and it is expected that by the beginning of next month the entire exposition will bo complete and that the Hood of visitors will have fully set In. It is also proba ble that in the early part of Juno the weather will not bo oppressive and that i visit to the fair will bo much more on- loyablo than later in the summer. On ovorj account the date fixed for Ne braska day seems auspicious. From an Interview with Commissioner Garncati there appears to bo every rea son to o.xpoct that the Nebraska display will bo highly creditable to the state , so fur as agricultural products are con- corned. There appears to bo some doubt us to whether the live stock ex hibit will .bo aa extensive as could bo desired , owing to a lack of money , but an effort is to bo made to do something that will enable the live stock interest to muko a bolter display than now booms probable , and for this purpose a mooting will bo hold at Lin coln on May -0. It is very much to bo hoped that tills will result in devising means for giving tlio live stock industry such prominence in connection with the Nebraska exhibit as its Importance merits. A poor showing in this respect would do the state no good , and indeed it might bo better to htivo none at all. The C'jinmUsioncr nays ho will bo able to provide some additional money for this interest , but not such an amount ns it should htivo. It would seem that there ought not to bo any great dilll- eulty in securing whatever mini may bo necessary to insure a Jlrst rate exhibit of live stock. Nebraska day , the commissioner says , will offer some special attractions , which will bo appreciated by Nebraskans and interesting to all visitors to the fair. Tlio program has not yet been fully ar ranged , but its announcement will un doubtedly bo made in duo time , so that the people of this state may know what to expect. It is to bo presumed that most Nebraskans who contemplate an early visit to the fair will make it a point to IKJ present on the day do.sig- nated for this state , partly from a fool ing of patriotic duty and partly for tlio reason that It is hardly possible for the exposition to bo in perfect condition much before that date. At any rate there ought to bo , and n all probability will be , a representa tion of Nebrasktins at the fair on Juno 8 so largo as to amply attest the pride which our people fool in their state. Perhaps nothing in connection with the exhibit will do more to commend Ne braska to the favorable consideration of visitors to the fair from other states than would the presence on this occa sion of a largo body of our representa tive citizens , showing in their manner and their appearance tlio unmistakable evidence of prosperity , comfort and hap piness. _ GAl'l'l'.iL LE.iriXd hANSAS. A Boston investment company which has for years been doing business in Kansas has withdrawn its capital from that htato. It is said that other com panies have already followed its exam ple or contemplate doing so as soon in they can close up existing linunciul ar rangements. The reason for this is that the last legislature adopted laws which those companies deem to bo inimical to their interests. Ono of these laws pro vides that when the mortgaged prop erty of a debtor shall bo sold by the sheriff the debtor shall have eighteen months after the Halo for redemption from the purchaser. Tlio other law prohibits all contracts for the payment of debts in gold. Referring to this legislation , the Phila delphia Record observes as to the first of these laws , that so fur from protecting the debtor , it will bo llkoly not only to depreciate the value of his mortgaged property , but to diminish his opportun ities for obtaining credit. There will not bo much activity in the competi tion of purchasers at sheriff's tales for property for which they can not obtain a title until eighteen months after the sale , if then , nor will money bu loaned with the condition that it cannot bo collected when duo. Such a law "must w.irk injury to tlio debtor by lessening his moans of b'lrrow- ing money and inereiuing the difficulty in disposing of his mortgaged property at itu value. " As to the law prohibiting contracts for the payment of debts in gold , the Itirnnl remarks that Its worst olTects would fall up m the needy bor rower , because ' 'tho lender would bo deterred from investing his mcnoy under a law prohibiting its repayment in standard coinage , or ho would cotnpon- Htito himself for the risk of pay ment in depreciated curroney by charging a usurious rate of internal. In either cuso the chief effect of this legis lation is to injure instead of to protect the b H'rowor. " There can bo no question regarding the soundness of UIQ.JO prop isltions , aii'l ' n thing is niDro oartain than that every farmer In Kansas who has to borrow niJiioy will discover that the lojisluUon adopted with the idea of uiving him pi-o- teet.l'ti will operate to his disadvantage. Tlio agricultural b imwws of Kun-xj : must look to outside KnulotMt ) supply their iliuincitil noj Is. Tivjro Is not homo capital enough to do tills. Cjm- petition batwoon investment ojmpaulo-j representing custom capital has boon to the tulvuntago of borrowers in rod tic- lug the rate of Interest. Tlio with drawal of thee companloj from the state will louvo the field tj the Uiuro.-d and the Kansas farmers who are com pelled to borrow money will bo vic timized. There is n > o cupo from thu situation under the operation of the ia laws , and It is safe t j predict that it will not bo long before thoro-wlll ba a very vlglrous outcry from a largo part of the farm owners of Kansas against this mistaken legislation , which so plainly antagonizes every sound financial and business principle that it is dlfiloult to under- staufl how any bady of men of fair Intel- llgenuo could bj Induced to ndjpt It. Bbbrusku narrowly oacapod legisla tion of a Hoinewhut similar character tw years ago , but fortunately there. vTDro nnn enough In the party whleh ton controlled the legislature who hu < i l&a practical common souse to under stand what the inevitable con-mquoncoa would bo and to avert the danger. The farmers of Kansas will speedily have cause to regret that there wore not such mon. or enough of them , in thu party that controlled the last legislature of that stato. .t l-Yoni all accounts the administration nnd Its export advisors are giving as siduous attention to the fiscal problem. It appears that the most perplexing question confronting thorn is how to re form the tariff and meet the largo ex penditure for pensions without the imposition - position of new taxes , either upon coffee and sugar or upon incomes. Although there is much democratic advocacy of duties on colTeo and sugar , the ad ministration Is naturally reluctant to take tlio responsibility of taxing the "poor mail's breakfast table , " forte to however moderate an extent this might bo done It would assuredly ho resented at the first oppor tunity. Nobody understands this batter than Secretary Carlisle , who is pre sumed to have presidential aspirations , and who is consequently anxious to avoid tills backward stop in the fiscal policy of the government , which tlio party out of power would take the fullojt possible ad vantage of. As to an income tax , which also has some democratic advocates , the trouble is that it has heretofore been op posed by tlio democracy. That party held in tlio past that such a tax was not only inquisitorial and essentially un just In its operation , but that there was no authority in the government to levy it , and one of its most honored states men , Samuel J. Tildon , always evaded it. The record of the party is thus against nu income tux. According to what appears to bo a trustworthy report , it is proposed to Hepurato tlio customs duties on liquors and tobacco from those on other articles and not to reduce the duties on thcso luxuries except for the purpose of in creasing the revenue. The tobacco duty under the present law does not yield as much revenue us under the old law and it may be somewhat reduced wuh a view t' > increasing the receipts. This is true of spirits and possibly of wines. Tlio high est revenue duties on these articles will , it is said , bo retained , without scruple as to their protective tendency , although to do this would of course not bo con sistent witli tlio national platform. It is understood , however , thatthatdeclara- tion will not play a very important part in determining the policy to be pursued in the effort to solve the tariff reform problem. There is one point in connection with this matter , which seems to bo conceded , and it is a very important one to the manufacturing interests of the country. This is that oven a special session of congress next September cannot enact a tariff bill to go into olTect much earlier than the sum mer of next year. It may bo practica ble to put some of the .schedules into ef fect at un earlier date , but the greater part of a reform tariff bill would have to remain inoperative until far into next year , in order to glvo manufacturers an opportunity to avail themselves of free raw materials , or do them a serious in justice by compelling them to compote with foreign goods at reduced duties before fore they have such opportunity. SALK OF nit ! HAIAA'K Ono of the most important dn'.ics to bo performed by tlio Board of Educational Lands and ? unds in the near future is tlio disposal of the saline lands belong ing to tlio &tato , as provided by recent act of the legislature. While it is well understood that the law providing for the sale of thcso landa was urged upon the legislature by tlio parties directly interested in their purchase , the advisa bility of selling them will hardly bo questioned. After repeated attempts , both upon the part of the state and by private individuals , and after the expenditure of thousands of dollars lars of tlio state's funds , it lias neon amply demonstrated that the saline springs can novcr bo made the basis of a great commercial industry. The brine from the springs is entirely too weak to make Iho munufauturo of salt a profita ble industry , and consequently the lands which surround tlio springs are worth no more to the state on thutaeuiunt than any other tracts of educational lands. The lands are oxtronnly valuable on unothor account , Irnvevor. Tlio legis lature authorized tlio sale of the unsold portions of five section * , and the lands embraced within those hcctiom are lo cated almost within the limits of the prosperous city of Lincoln. Sumo of them have boon leaded for a period of fifty years and are covered with extensive packing houses and stock yards. The city of West Lincoln , which , in a nndoat way at least , is claiming the advantages of a live stock market for all interior No- brnska points , Is located adjacent to and upon thcso lands. The greater part of another section is included in the con- lines of the now pletvju ' 0 resurt known as Burlington beach , whioh in the sum mer months Is vUited daily by thousands of people. Taeso lands are extremely valuable to tlio great corporations now controlling thorn , not on account of the extensive improvements which they htivo placed upon thoni , but oololy by reason of their ojnvonlonco of access to the city of Linouln. They are Hanked on either side by great universities and educational Institutions and uvo stic- rounded with computing lines of rail roads. Taking those farts intu consideration , the responsibility resting upon the board Is apparent. The state is entitled to and should receive a fair market value for these hinds , and It will ba the duty of Iho bard tofoo to it that they are apprainod at something like their real worth. The necessity for vlgllanco on the part of the board is greater from the fact that local Influeneos will doubt less have much to d > with the appraise ment , as it will have to bo made by tlu commissioner of Lancaster county. On this account the bjurd should not only oxorclso duo vigilance , but should , il uooessary , reject the appraisement If it is plucod at s-j low a flgiiro in t ) suggiwt questionable methods In placing a rea sonable value on the lands. Upon Gjvornor t'roun-u and the com' of public lunJa and will rest another and pi-rlmr * greater ro- fllKinslblllty. 'Woy are the only oftlclaU ciiiiiowcroil hjj law to ulijn thu clceils for the traiiHfor 3 > fihe , lauds from the utato to the purelwiers , mul they Bhoultl not hesitate to ri l\iso to execute any deed In which the e tloratlon Is manifestly and unreasonably low. The people ? will uphold them IfVhny stand they may scent nt to take In ureler to protect the Inter ests of tlio stutii. TllK fact thnjt''Undor ' the law passed by the last legislature of South Dakota the entire suprciuo jiourt , as well as till of the cfrcttlt court justices , are to bo elected this your is exciting considera ble of a flutter among the lawyers of that Htato. Otherwise there is little public interest taken In the approach ing conventions to nominate candidates for these offices. That the supreme court and a majority of the circuit court jtidget will bo chosen by the republi cans is a foregone conclusion , and the democrats are not generally oven sug gesting : the names of their probable can didates. The republicans have the three present incumbents of the supreme premo bench as aspirants for re-election , and there is not a circuit judge in the state who would not bo willing tolbo promoted to the position. Out of the large number of available jurists of re publican faith in the state the warty should bo able to select able and availa ble men for these important judicial offices. IT IS a mistake to attempt totiresorvo the reputation of any political party by concealing frauds and wrong-doings of public olllcors who are regarded as the representatives of that party. To oven oppose objections to a proposed investi gation is to suggest the probable desira bility of such an investigation. An hon est official feels no apprehension when an investigation of his public acts is talked of. Men who have done no wn ng know , as the entire public understands , that an investigation of their official conduct can only place them on a higher piano for recognition by the people. Popular judgment in this country is em inently just and equitable. TiiBnio is no justice in the system that prevails at Washington of withholding from deposed ollleials knowledge of the charges under which they were removed. Why should a man deemed worthy of appointment to olllciul responsibility bo deprived of the privileges allowed mon in private employ ? If a republican olllco holder is removed simply to make way for a democrat , ' why not lot that fact bo announced and'bo done with it. Such a course would bo.fur preferable to that of branding 11 intiuius dishonorable before his neighbors without giving him an op portunity to defend himself when at tacked from the ambush. THK delusion that any workingman in the United Stated may liavo indulged that Hawaii might prove a good place for an industrioiW man to emigrate to , will probably bo dispelled by what Mr. Charles NordofT writes of the islands. The Chinese , Jivpunose and Portuguese monopolize all tlie labor there and much of the small businos * and trading , Tlio United StatOJ after all offers the best opportunity in the world for the labor ing man , whatever mule intent ) may say to tlio contrary. TllBilB seems to be u singular coin- denco in the fact that many ol the re publican newspapers in the state that are complaining so bitterly of tlu insuf ficiency of the appropriations for the maintenance of the state institutions are tlio oni's which are loudest in their defense of the state ollleials whose care lessness enabled men like Dorgun , Lauor , llubbard and Bolts to defraud the state on tlio contracts for furnishing supplies to those same Institutions. FOR the second time the grand jury is investigating the conduct of the men who for years systematically swindled the state out of thousands of dollars on the asylum and penitentiary contracts. It is a matter of uungrutitlution that the evidence against those men is as strong and conclusive today as it was last De cember when they wore indicted by the first grand jury. There is no likelihood of their escape from the consequences of their crimes. THK managers of Nebraska railroads have but two months in which to readjust - just their fi'oitrht schedules to the provi sions of the bill pu-i.sod by the last legis lature. Nothing but a fair trial of the new rates will satisfy the people of the state as to their justness. An evasion of tlio law by an appeal to the courts on questions of technical constitutional points will reopen the agitation foi lower rates with more vehemence than ovor.
