It wns expccti'd Hint thure would bo
conflict bolwet'U the lionse and senate
conferees on the tnrllt bill , but it was
not thought It would assume quite . < >
aggravated n form nx It soctns to have
ilono. 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.

'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.

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

The mortgage records in many Ne

off their old debts rather than contract
ing new debls. Kven though Ihu fig
ures are admittedly defective they are
approximately correct and Indicate the
general trend of the mortgage extin

Uncle Horace Doles spoke with the shrewd
Judgment of a man who has had an ex-ended
experience In politics when he declared that
the fight for free ( --liver wnuld never be feught
again under conditions < > o fivt.r.ible to the
10 to 1 advocate ? .
The national conference of the people's
party , now belly ; Jieljl at Nashville , confirms
In one particular the ex-governor's predic
tion. The second battle for free silver will
not see smell ail extraordinary coalition ' -f
political forces ris marked the contest of lift
year. In their addresses tbe populist repre
sentatives at NBshvlllc come nuI une mivo-
oilly against fusion .mil plice the annihiU-
tlou of trusts , cpmblues and rin .i . before the
ftee coinage of silver.
In turning away from the rennrkuble al
liance the populists rast mi longing , linger
ing look behind ; What they e-ist upon their
late comrades sounds moro like aspersions
and denunciations , t
In Iowa the populists , or at least a portion
of thnni , have broken away from the fusion
deal tint was fixed up for the s'atp campaign.
In Ohio p3pull"t < : . silver repub'h-ani ' and pro
hibitionists will'go ' their separate ways , la
both states and In Kentucky th ? golil clcim-
cratn will stand sturdily by their colors , and
If the result In'Michigan Jast spring Is any
criterion they \vill make a much stronger
PhowlnR than th y did lant fall.
The silver republican- have organized for
ludepcndont effort and not for fusion. When
the llryan democracy again winds its silver
horn the Indications are that ( ho patty plans
that will respond will be woefully fewer
than last fall.

The piiTpa.se of the gold democrats to con
tinue their organization Is a ract of grout
political significance. It m-.ins that the
Breach In the democracy H not going to be
lurrowed while the Rllvrr issue remains. The
only way , of poiuc. that this element , or
any other political faction or [ larty , couh !
maintain lUelf as an organization l.s by
nominating candidates In every canvass lit
ita locality , and by supporting those candi
dates vigorously at the polls. Iowa has al
ready put up a gold ilcinunratle ticket to bo
voted fnr In November , Kentucky ia about
to take similar action , while Ohio , it is un
derstood , will move in the sntne direction.
Heports have been beard of a similar pui-
pose In other states which have clue'Ions
this year.
That the national lenders of the iold win ?

Well , now tl-o fact l that they are logical
I'MiiighAir n It cornea to talking about
some priest , the price of blcyclts , for ex-
smple. Th'-y say that cninpetltion , inven
tion , the lil-voviM-y of IIBW methodfi and

dmtry , recounts for all the fall of tbe prlci >

had anything to do with It which It had
not. beyond being a filaldc ctsndard they
must pra'rc. ' It , for they ( \iy that the redue-
tl'Mi of the price of bicycle. * Is a good thing.
They will pdinlt that the reduction brings
blcynles within the reach of more people ,
within tliu reach of tliimsind. ? of Iowa farm

is anything In the nr-rlt of reducing the

Hut , as the Journal has heretofore pointed
out. the. HryanilcH will not slick In their
logic In Hilcli n cane. Their lucid Interval
Is of dhort duration. 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.
