The belief was that n spirit of compromise would be shown on both sides and while such a sp.irlt Is not en tirely absent It Is mil very pronounced , partleiilaily on the part of the house ; conferees. The-m appear disposed lo in sist that Ihe more Important features of the house bill wh'eh ' were changed by thu senate- shall be restored , urging that they Imvo received more general approval from the public Hum the * ! ale amendments a claim that Is un questionably well-founded. It Is e. je- dally ( rut ! lu regard lo the sugar sched ule and the wool and woolen schedule. In respect to the former It Is felt that the senate bill Is nttidi too favorable to Ihu trust , while as lo the lailer U Is con tended that It would operate to the uui- advantnge of manufacturers , wlms" In terests It l.s desirable to safeguard equally with those of the wool grow ers. There is radical disagreement as to other Items , but a compromise upon these may be more ea y of attainment than upon the leading schedules. As everybody hi aware , a considerable number of th" amendments to the house bill were made as a concession to votes necessary to the passage of Ihe tariff bill lu the senate. If these amendments are abandoned In conference Hie votes con ditioned upon them are likely to be hist and the measure thus jeopardr/ed. A general restoration of the fealines of Ihe house bill that imdei wont -hatiges In the semite would certainly lead to a prolonged discussion in lilt- latter body and there is reason to apptolionn might provo fatal to the measure. 'I his danger Is of course apparent to the house re publicans , but It. does not appear to have very great weight with ( him. Perhaps further deliberation will persuade them that It Is expedient to maUe concessions In order lo Insure the passageot inc. lilll that a si-use of the. urgent neces sity of giving the country a new tariff law as soon as possible will override me feeling that the. work of the senate has not improved the. house bill , but the contrary. There was if. financial and business circles a very general feeling of relief when ihularllf bill passed the senate and H was coulldently hoped that within ten days or two weens the matter would be disposed of and tariff agitation ended for at least four years. It now appears probable that the bill will remain in conference several weeks , with the pos sibility thai no agreement can be reached and that if the conferees do agree thy lerms will be such as to bring on a piolonged discussion In Ihe senate that will postpone tinal action for mouths and render Ihe outcome uncer tain. Such an outlook is anything but reassuring. It keeps alive a feeling in industrial and business ! circles that Is unfavoiable to enterprise and holds In check those conditions which are nei.-es- snrv to a restoration of prosperity. Tin : /A-DI.IA / rHM'iiKttfr.VSTTPTK. . 'Omaha ' extends a cordial welcome to its visitors who are attending the In dian Teachers' Institute In session here this week. Too little is known about the work which the Indian schools .ire doing and- the inlluence whl"h they are ex erting upon the pi ogress of the red man. While the institute is primarily for the discussion of methods empluyed in in structing the Indians in the government schools , it will serve at the s.ime time to draw public attention to the Importance of these institutions and strengthen them with the public. According to Superintendent Ilail- manu. the aim and object of the Indian schools is to bring the Indians up lo the point whote they can be made to lit into the public school syscom and share with out discrimination in the education that is provided for the children of .iil our citi/pns. With a handicap of more than L'.OUO years against him and in favor of the white pupil , the Indian will for some time yet require special attention if not special schools to bring out whatever natural aptitude for learning Is in him. So long as the government maintains a iliMinet department of Indian edncai'oii it is imperative that the Instruction b. of the most systematic and practical character , and n the furtherance of lids end the annual institutes for Indian teachers are performing a most useful service. The cash balance in the national treas ury Is well maintained and the gold re serve is not decreasing. In fact the condition of Hie llnanclal department ol the government is very satisfactory , be ing marked by fewer perturbations than have occurred at this time of year for half a doxeti years past. There is no feeling of anxiety , It Is said , as to the reclining deficit and I liens Is no aiipie- henslon In regard to the gold reserve , which is larger now than a month ago. The treasury has gained steadily by t.ie deposits of new gold at the mints and probably will continue to gain from this source during the .summer and autumn. A significant fact Is tint the produe.'rw of gold am willing to accept paper cur rency In exchange for it , although they are not bound to lake anything bill the gold coin into which their bullion is con verted by the mints. This attests in Ihe strongest p isMble way the cnniidonco lhat Is felt In the legal tender notes of the government , tin * withdrawal and cancellation of which l being persist ently urged by the so-called currency reformers. The public manifested Its prefeieiice for Mils paper currency Im mediately after the last presidential election by taking gold to the treasury In exchange for the notes and even the producers of iho > yellow nmlal prefer them to coin. It ought to be obvious that Iho people will not consent to the re tirement of a currency thus favoied and the substitution for It of bank note * , un der whatever conditions the hitter should bu Issued. The treasury makes large disburse.- meats during ihu present month , as us ual at the beginning of a fiscal year , and these will reduce the cash balance , but not to an extent Hint can cause the slighter embarrassment. A detlcit for Hie month and for some mouths lo come is to bo oxpivtrd. for well understood rcusuuu , but ihU will cause no distrust or dlstnrbancn. such as was produced by deficits under the preceding administra tion , because the country knows there will be legislation lo provide adequate revenue and that the government will not be forced to borrow to meet Its ob ligations. The situation so far as the na tional treasury Is concerned Is from all points of view rcasMiilug. IIY L The impression that the national treas ury Is annually robbed of a large amount through undervaluations of merchandise by Importers Is erroneous according to the retiring appraiser at New York , lie sa.VN the gieat body of merchants arc honest and Ihelr merchandise Incorrectly Invoiced , undervaluation being the ex ception and not the rule. Yet he re marked that constant watchfulness is undoubtedly required on Hie part of ex aminers and there is stilliHont under valuation to require the closest scrutiny of Invoices. It Is quite possible that there has been some exaggeration lu rogaid to the ex tent of undervaluations , but It Is un questionable that under the op 'railon of the present tariff law the government has been n heavy loser through Ihe dis honesty of importers and It must always be with a system of ad valorem duties. They are an Invitation and an Incentive to fraud and should never be applied whore II Is practicable to have spocllie duties. The experiment with ad valoiem rates has cost the government many millions of dollars since the present tariff law went Into operation , besides adding largely to the expense of administering the law. The penning tariff bill Is a decided Improvement In this respect. srti.r. DuiHiixi ; TIIK QUKSTIUX. Having treated Its patrons to a re hash of exploded city campaign lire- works as an answer to the question how- Its owner came to have a memorandum slip in the cash drawer of the default ing city treasurer , the World-Herald now repeats the pel forinance In answer to the question why Umbex/.ler Hartley came to its rescue. Kverybody In these parts who knows anything about the matter knows that Mayor Moores has counter claims against the county and city , which lie asserts greatly more than offset any money said to be due from him to them. It Is also apparent that Hie depositions taken before Notary Ilordman present only such features of the case as are designed to mislead the public and bolster up Itroatch In Hie idea that he stands some chance to oc cupy again the place of mayor to which Moores was elected. The fact that the attorneys of Mayor Moores took excep tion lo the right of the notary to take these depositions and their refusal to participate in the hearing for Ihe sea son that the supreme court had yet made no order In the case Is pur posely suppressed. The cuttlefish seems to think that shedding Ink over Moores affords a chance for it to cover up its own tracks. H Is hardly probable , however , that these gyrations and hysterical contortions tions about Mayor Moores' disputed claims will count for much wK.i thu in telligent public , nor "are they liktl.1 to figure very extensively in next fall's campaign when the people aiv called on to elect a judge of the supreme court. On the contrary , we may saily predict that the fiisionists will have no Inclina tion to light the llowell-Ilansom cam palgn of this spring over again. Omaha , we are glad to say , is enjoying more than the ordinary degree of re vlved prosperity , but Omaha is not tin- only pebble on the beach. I'ick up any of the popoeratie press and it always makes an exception of the particular place in which it is published. The Denver papers say Denver Is the great except Ion to the leigu of despond , the St. Louis popocratie press insists that St. Louis' material progress is unique , the ( 'hicago silver Journals hold Chicago up as leading tbe procession , and so on all along the line. The trouble with HIP calamity editor l.s that he can not SIT beyond ills nose and imagines thai everything lie can not see must be calamity. The mortgage records in many Ne braska comities are making a most graii- fylng showing for Improved business con ditions. When th' .

Kven though Ihu fig ures are admittedly defective they are approximately correct and Indicate the general trend of the mortgage extin guishing movement and that communi ties that are paying off mortgages are in promising circumstances. State IJeprcsenlative Velser says lie Is a-giiuning for a reduction lu telephone tolls and further expresses confidence that the State Hoard of Transportation as now constituted will exercise Hie power conferred under the new law to bring this about. lint the state board as now constitnied has at all times been empowered to reduce railway rates , but bus not o.xoivlsi'd its power to anv ap preciable extent. The people will hav- * conlldeiice In Hit' board when It does omothlng and not before and they want something more convincing than gallery plays. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ The railroad lobby will make a grand desperate effort to have the Harris reso lution ordering the I'lilon Pacific fore closure proceeding slopped passed by senate and house he Tore the adjournment of congress. The railroad lobby has a. yet accomplished nothing tangible dur ing the extra session and It wants to show something for the money squan dered on it. A woman lias been Indicted In New Jersey as "a common scold. " Her po litical preferences are not stated , but It Is safe to say she would make a valu able addition to the popocratlc calamity howlers who never cease telling how everything is going to the dogs.

They will not follow their logic whin It comes to the price uf wh'Mt , for Illustration. They don't want It to follow the law uf Industrial proKrriw and development. And yet the apparent reduc tion of the price of wheat In the ultimate market can b much morn clearly accounted for than that of bicycles. The cheapening uf transportation by reason of the railway and the HtcaniHhlp , the cheapening of cost of production by machinery , the cheapening of other elements of coat Hunt ) and many other conditions have made It possible. uiM Indeed Inevitable and necessary , that the prlco of wheat In the ultimate market should go down. The Htandard by which the prli-u Is measured hud nothing to do with It , any moro than with the price of IdcycIcH. As a matter of fact the profit to thn producer of wheat , the uamo BH to the original pioducor of bicycles , may well bo gre-itcr upder the lower than under the higher price. The original producer as well an the consumer , In the long run and on the average , will alike be benefited. That Is to say , both will share In the economy of Injjiroved machln < ry and procisces. And , to go a Htep further. what kind of a stand ard would that be which would neutralize the progress of Invention and Improvement , being one thing thin month and this year , and a dltlertut ttilui ; uent mouth and next year ; ami , nt one and HIP name- time , on- hnnring the price of one article and reduc ing the price of another ? That Is just the kind of a standard which the world IA vitally Interested In not having. The least varlablo Mibsianco Is the thine the world unlit * ns a standard , whether the thing measured be cvteiiBlnti , density , value , or whatever. To measure the price of wheat , bicycles nnd everything pise , the world wants a standard which will bo an nearly OR pwslble the same for long pcrloda of time. i.\nmiM : ( i.v.s , Yonl < pr < Stalpfluan : "Whrro's your bus- i band ? 1 never see him iu , v ?
