Kx-Senator Edmunds of Vermont wns interviewed recently on the silver rjucH- tlon and expressed some views on the subject which arc Interesting. Asked ymllilK the sentiment which liillu- encod congress to pn s the law of 187II , ho being In the senate at that time , Mr. Edmunds said the sentiment was very plain then. Silver had been for many years practically unknown In this coun try except as a subsidiary currency. The coinage of silver dollars up to that time had amounted to only about 8,000- 000 and these were not In general cir culation. After careful consideration congress concluded that the true pollcj' was lo stop the coinage of the silver dollar , and , said Mr. Edmunds , "all the people who are now raising such n row over the law and who were In congress at the time , Senator Stewart nnd the rest , were In favor of It. " There Is no doubt that such wasj the case , the his tory of the legislation of 187.1 regarding silver showing that It met with little opposition. And the reason for this Is clear and conclusive. The silver dollars were worth more uncoined than coined and of course the owners of silver could not afford to have It coined , neither could the government afford to buy the bullion and coin standard silver dollars. Hence dropping them from the coinage at that time had no practical Interest to any one. The silver states were using the gold standard and selling their silver at a premium. Mr. Edmunds said that ho Is not op posed to bimetallism per BO , but ho Is pronounced In his hostility to the free and unlimited coinage of sliver by the United States. "If the logic of the ad vocates of the unlimited free coinage of silver be carried out , " said the veteran statesman , "wo shall be face to face with flat money pure and simple , for If by the legislative will sixteen ounces of silver ea.il be made the equivalent of one ounce of gold and endowed with legal tender qualities , why shall not ten ounces , or one ounce , have the same value given it ? " Mr. Edmunds said that the whole trouble lies In the fact which has always existed and always will exist , that people ore In debt. "If there were no debts to pay there would never be a word said about the character of the currency of the conn- try. Until human nature shall have been reconstructed there will always be the struggle to discharge financial obli gations at the least cost , " Mr. Ed munds urges a vigorous campaign o education in behalf of a sound cur rency , declaring that "the duty of the patriot , especially the young patriot , Is to engage in this campaign. " lie has no fear of the result If the ordinary men of average intelligence and honest become thoroughly Informed upon the subject. It Is In the lack of knowledge that dan ger lies. AN KDVGATIOKA.L CENTER. Iii the mad rush for commercial su premacy the builders of Omaha have not been unmindful of the advantages and Importance of a comprehensive edu cational system. Each successive year witnesses the advancement and .substan tial growth of our colleges and schools , The public schools of Omaha have foi a decade enjoyed the reputation of pos sessing the highest degree of etllclency and In all respects are second lo none In cities of equal population. Our de nominational colleges take front rank with like institutions throughout the west Their faculties have been strengthened and the number of gradu ates has Increased from year to year. Omaha colleges of medicine are worthy of particular mention. Founded by a few of the older physicians of this city , unheralded in the world of letters , they have risen to the importance of thor ough educational Institutions In which the medical profession and the people ot Omaha have Justifiable pride. Gradu ates of the two colleges have taken thelt degrees and will assume places In the ranks of full-fledged practicing physi cians. Our medical colleges have pros pered practically without the aid ol endowments. Success is due to the gen erosity and courage of the founders , the abilities and fidelity of the faculties , The high character of Crelghton col lege , llrowuell Hall and the Presby terian Theological seminary as scats ot learning has long been recognized by the people of this city and state. Thelt Intluence upon the Intellectual life ol this community cannot be overesti mated. They occupy a broad field ol usefulness and their advancement must over keep pace with the progress ol Omaha. The Bee recognizes In the educational Institutions of Omaha a prime factoi In her future greatness. It Is the hope of every citizen that our colleges and schools shall continue to expand and be strengthened with the years. EXPERIMENT NEARhl' ENDED , The time seems to be fast approaching when Indian soldiers will have disap peared from the United States army , Orders for the dlsbamlment of troop L Eighth cavalry , wore Issued about ten days ago , leaving at present In the serv ice only two Indian companies , namely I , Twelfth Infantry , and L , Third cav airy. The latter Is expecting discharge before the end of May , after which tht sole remaining company cannot be loiif ; retained. The experiment , therefore commenced four years ago with an order for the enrollment of eight troop ? of Indian cavalry and nineteen'compa nies of Infantry Is nearly ended. The enlistment of Indian soldiers \\ni undertaken as an experiment and the discontinuance of the Indian companies must be accepted as Indicating at leasl unsatisfactory results. Upon this ques tion , however , the opinion of army olll cers Is divided and i-ontllctlng. Genera Schofleld In his last report remarks that the experiment "has satisfactorily ac compllshed the main purpose had In view In Its adoption , namely , to demon strate the present and prospective value for military purposes of the several In Ulan tribes , as well as in the minor ob jects had to some extent In view. " On the other hand General Uuggles report ; that "tho result obtained after prolonged trial has not been encouraging. Lncfc of knowledge of the English language restlessness and discontent under new conditions of life and habits , marriage demoralization when stationed near In Ulan reservations , arc among the causes which have Interfered to prevent the In dian from becoming n valuable Ameri can soldier. " It is qnlto possible that the experi ment might have proven more favorable to the Indian troops had nil of them been under as sympathetic and pains taking olllcers as were the best. Some of the olllcers In charge of their disci pline were for a while almost enthu siastic over their possibilities and were eager to demonstrate to what state of elllclcncy they could bo brought. Hut In no case was It thought that they would bo superior or even equal to the white soldiers , and for this reason , prob ably , the higher authorities have decided to expend no further effort In this tllre-c- lion. Enlistment In the United States army Is not to bo the solution of the Indian problem. ttAXK Discoveries of defalcations by bank ofllclals have been rather numerous re cently and In most of the cases It was found that ( lie stealing had been going on for years , of course without the slightest suspicion on the part of the di rectors of these Institutions that any thing was going wrong. Necessarily this Is always so In such cases , but what people who are not especially familiar with the banking business llml hard to understand Is why bank directors , who are presumed to be shrewd anil careful business men , are apparently so Indiffer ent to details as to enable dishonest subordinate olllclals to rob the bank and carry on their peculations for years. "It seems clear , " says the Baltimore Sun , "that there must be something radically defective In business methods under which It Is possible to use the funds of a bank year after year without detection. There must be some blunder ing , some carelessness or some gross failure of duty where a single bank of ficer or two or three olllcers combined can coolly help themselves to Its money for so long a time without discover ) ' . If everybody had done his full duty , In vestigation would generally show that these crimes would have been Impossi ble. " This retlects the general popular view. If the directors of a bank do not keep such a vigilant watch upon Us affairs as to render the stealing of Us funds next to Impossible there Is no other means of preventing defalcations , for It has been most amply demonstrated that bank examiners are useless for this purpose. It has sometimes happened that an examiner discovered a steal or found reason for suspecting that some thing was wrong , but as a rule these olllclals perform their duty In so per functory a way that It Is a very sim ple matter for a shrewd rogue to deceive or mislead them. Besides It is really no part of a bank examiner's duty to make such an Investigation Into details as would be necessary to discover defal cation. It la not to be doubted , how ever , that many of these olllclals are less careful and thoiwigh than they ought to be. The question of providing better checks and safeguards for the protec tion of bank funds has been discussed for years and propositions with this In view have been submitted to congress , but nothing has been done that has proved to be effective. Perhaps no leg islation would make careless bank direc tors careful and vigilant , while those who have these qualities do not need to bo required by act of congress to ex ercise them. And where such men are In charge of financial institutions there Is no stealing. It Is of course necessary to repose some confidence lu bank em ployes and very generally they merit it , but that it is not wise to place no limit upon confidence , In the case of those lu a position of great tempta tion , every bank defalcation pointedly demonstrates. The statement of Mr. Sweet man , the Irish member of Parliament who has Just given up his seat because ho does not want to support the Itosebery ad ministration , again calls attention to the fact that there is no way provided by the British constitution by which a member of the House of Commons can voluntarily retire. Mr. Sweetman says that ho has applied to the chancellor of the exchequer for the Chlltern Hun dreds , and that his constituents will now have an opportunity to vote for a member In his place. Many Americans will fall to sec the connection. They must know that no one can resign from Parliament , but. that appointment to certain olllces disqualifies the Incum bents from continuing to sit unless re- elected. The Chlltern Hundreds is one of the few nominal olllces at the dis posal of the chancellor of the exchequer given as a matter of course to members who want to retire. The appointee al ways resigns his new office forthwith nnd leaves It vacant for others who wish to use It for the same purpose. It Is the clumsy loophole through whlcl members of Parliament 'ire ' enabled to escape from their olllclal duties. Assemblyman McCarthy of the Illi nois legislature Is said to bo a hand some young bachelor. He views with alarm the growing tendency of Ameri can heiresses to marry European noble men , and In order to check the fad he Introduced a resolution to the effect that the Thirty-ninth general assembly of the state of Illinois request the daugh ters of Illinois not to accept the hand In marriage of any person who Is not a cit izen of the United States by right of birth or naturalization. What the as sembly did with this resolution does not appear , but it Is notable only as Indicat ing the sentiment of Americans on the subject. American girls who have more money than brains will continue to ex change their ducats for titles and high social rank , despite the action of any state assembly or the opinions of the great majority of American citizens. The effect of the suburban trolley lines that arc becoming so common In the east upon the steam railroads that cater to local passenger tralllc Is un mistakably to reduce the faro on the steam railroads. The New Haven com pany last week put Into operation on the Derby division fares reduced to 2 cents a mile , the same rate prevailing on the New York division. Of course there are no new conditions of traffic to precipitate changes In fare at this particular time. Th6 only explanation Is that the Di'Fby division comprises that portion d ( ) i'e road which Is threat ened with n iwrallel trolley line. Wo must not b ' 'surprised , therefore , to hear of roduced.passenger fares in other parts of tho.jt jhtry as the suburban trolley Idea seourcs a wider acceptation. The suit bi'djight by the Mute of Ne braska ngulust , ? x-Trcasuror Hill and his bondsmen to recover the $ 'JUO,000 of public monoy1 lilltged to have been lost In the Cnpllu\NitIonal ; ) bank failure Is set for hearing Jii the supreme court today. In oildi'r'to ' take cognizance of the case umU-r lls original jurisdiction the court has for the first time In its history made provision for the empan eling of a jury drawn by specially ap pointed' jury commissioners from the state at large. The case will excite the Interest of the whole people of Nebraska , not alone because the slate Is party to the suit , but also because of the prece dent In procedure which It promises to set. Government by Injunction Is certainly making tremendous strides. Here we have a man appointed by the governor and confirmed by the senate to bo super intendent of one of the state Institu tions commanded by a temporary re straining order to refrain not only from all attempts to exercise the duties of his otllce , but also from even assorting that he Is legally the superintendent of such Institution. The Injunction seeks to set limits to his freedom of speech. It will bo Interesting to know upon what showing of facts the court will be asked to make such an extraordinary writ permanent. Emphasis is being laid In one or two quarters on the fact that Chief Justice Fuller , the highest Judicial olllcer in the land , and a democrat , disapproves the income tax , and so relieves the dem ocratic party of the responsibility for its imposition. This Is strange logic. Most people are under the Impression that the only thing Mr. Fuller consid ered wns whether or not the law was in confilct with the constitution. Some people still have money. That fact is Illustrated by the record of building permits Issued by the city In spector. If mechanics and laborers should make a compact with contrac tors that last year's union scale of wages would bo acceptable under all contracts made this season It would serve as a standing Invitation to In vestors to put their money Into new buildings. n.

The most encouraging sign since the panic of 1893 Is the presentation during the last week of gold at the United States treasury In exchange for paper money.

There are some who bo- llovo the construction ot an electric line from Fremont to Omaha would prove to be a disadvantage to this city , but It might be well to look at the question from all sides before coming lo an adverse conclusion. In the event the line should be built there Is no doubt that every nice Sunday would bring hundreds of people from Omaha to spend the day In Fremont , together with an equal number from various villages along the line. There are many people doing business In Omaha who really do not like the idea , of living In that city nnd If convenient means were provided for them to get to and from their otnccs quite n number would undoubt edly build "suburban" residences In Fre mont , and bring their families here to live. Wlsner Chronicle : Tim Bedgwlck , clerk of the last state senate , at the close of Ills observations of the work of certain men who have failed In their personal aspirations and now have no ambition left In Ufa butte to get even with some one , sagely remarks In his York Times : "Tho candidate who cannot take defeat gracefully , either at a convention or at the polls , has no business to bs In politics. There has unfortunately been a good deal of malicious work by de feated candidates In Nebraska lately. " This Is true ; still HIchards used his Intluence to nominate Majors to vindicate himself and spite Itosey. Now Majors has a similar grlevancs of his own and everything elto must bo subordinated to the Idea ot vindi cating this pair of defeated candidates. The word vindication In the sense of rcvcngo Is said by Webster to be obsolete , and It Is about thno It should be expunged from the vocabulary ot Nebraska republicans. Lincoln News : Several years ago Charley Moshcr , who was trying to make the public nnd the stockholders believe that the Capital National bank was making money , when , In fact , it had lost about everything It owned In the form ot money , took nearly $300,000 of the money left with the bank by depositors and gave U to the stockholders to make them b.Mleve that they were making money on their Investment. Uy a series ot such startling Napoleonic deals he succeeded In keeping the head of the Institution above water for several years , and thus the fact that ho had given away the money that be longed to the depositors of the bank was. not found out until the bank collapsed. Had the depositors who placed their funds In the bank only been able to at once IInil out that Mosher was giving them away to the stock holders of the bank , they could at once have taken steps to recover them , but they never found out this Important fact until long after the bank had closed Its doors , and when they flnally did find It out and suit was brought to recover the money from the par lies to whom It had been given without war rant , the discovery was made that they did not find It out soon enough , for the limit ot tlmo In which the law allowed them to bring action for the recovery of their money had expired. This Is the substance of the de cision of the federal court In the case. x a.vw Globe-Democrat : Secretary Morton Is the small boy of the administration who blurts out things that should not be told. St. Louis Republic : Our belief that Secre tary Merion In his * recent Interview on the money question spoke only for himself and not for the president Is now verified by Mr. Cleveland himself. The president sees clearly , much to the credit of his sagacity , that it the campaign for "sound money" Is to bo successful there must bo a place In it for bimetallisms who shrink from free coin age without International co-operation. Boston Advertiser : In addition , it maybe bo said that Secretary Morton's loose talk Is to be regretted , because there Is no reason to expect that this' nation will ba invited to send delegates to an international monetary conference In the comparatively near' future. Congress has already authorized prompt action upon such an Invitation ; and It Is rather discourteous , to use no other terms , for Sec retary Morton as one of the olllclal advisers of President Cleveland to voice an opinion of contempt for the motive which must servo as a basis for the call for the proposed con vention. Philadelphia Inquirer : The rebuke admin istered to Secretary Morton by President Cleveland for his publication of an Interview In which It was announced that International bimetallism was Impossible calls to mind the fact that nearly every member of this admin istration has been "called down" In one way or another. Uut severe as the rebukes were in these Instances , they were mild compared with the calling down , by the American people of the president himself for his destructive tariff policy. That rebuke heads all the others administered to this called-dowii administration. mixes. The democratic demand In Chicago has precipitated a largo Influx of organ grinders. A marked falling off In war scares Is no ticeable in Washington. Correspondents are tooting in a minor key. The author of the prediction that iilno- tenths of the political sons rising now will decline from necessity within a year , is a safe prophet to tie to. The early ambition of William Black , the novelist , was to become a portrait painter. That he succeeded : admirably Is due to a skilful handling of the pencil. In the opinion of the Atlanta Constitution any democrat opposing the free and unlim ited coinage of silver is a traitor to the party and does not stand a ghost of a show of salvation. Assuming that the pictures of Durrani , printed by the San Francisco papers , arc cor rect drawings from life , there is no great necessity for Introducing other evidence than his face. That Is a give-away. Congressman Dland , who lives on a farm near Lebanon , Mo. , has an orchard of 5,000 lien Davis apple tree : . As these apples sell for 40 cents a bushel , and as the yield of each tree averages five bushels , the congress man Is pretty well fixed , no matter what hapeus to silver.

Wayne Herald ; Omaha Is making prepa rations for the grandest fair ever held In the state. The festival to bo given by the merchants ot Omnlta during the state fair week will bo called the "Knights of Ak Sar lien , " and as negotiations have been mailo for the purchase ol the Mardl Gras floats this will be an especial feature.

Nebraska City News : One of our Lincoln exchanges Is still fretting because the Capi tal city lost the state fair and wants the pcoplo of that town to carry on a systematic campaign for the next two years , so that the next legislature will bo favorable to a bill permanently locating the fair at Lincoln.

If the repub licans control the next legislature , ns they will , then Mr. Hrlce will smile and say ho has long desired to lay down the cares and burdens of olllce , but should the democrats , by any possible combination of circum stances , control , as they will not , then he would be found to be very active , without any desires for private life.
