A conespouauw ui tne. sprtnguei.i
i Republican, writing from Germany,
J gives the following account of the beer
drinking habits of the professors and
students of the German universities:
I don't wish to overdraw the pic
ture or paint it in false colors. I w ish
it merely understand that the Germans
as a race, are very fond of beer. Many
of the old Heidelberg professors drink
of an evening, thirty or' forty glasses
in addition to what they have taken
during the day. They do no manual
labor" they drink not from ' thirst, but
because they are accustomed to it;
they take pride in boasting of the
great number of glasses they have
swallowed at one sitting.
j I have le-iitd of German students
j that have tii 11:1k seventy two to sev
1 eity-three glasses of an evening, and

j dowsof Heidelberg there is a promin-
ent display of photographs of the vari
ous student corps, classes and societies,
arranged and grouped about in every
position imaginable. Many of the
groups are taken in the grounds of the
famous old castle, showing-the grand
old ruins in the back grounds, and ev
ery student is represented with a mug
of beer deposited on a table within his
reach. If two or three or more stu
dents have their photographs taken in
a group, that they may distribute them
among their intimate friends and
brother students, to be remembered by
in after years, the inevitable beer-mugs
are sure to be prominent' features in
the pictures. The beer-mug is their

of the limes, has concluded that it had

si rtion of i90 thatdemocr:icy is not

news from headquarters, is still peg'
ging a way at the subject with all the
energy that Filosophor Peri v Infused

steel rail prodiiceis have in the past
two years placed too high prices on
their products, and to some extent by
the fear of the possible control of tar
iff legislation by tin- free trade demo
cratic party. IJut the Journal over
estimates the misfortunes of the situa
tion. Very few mills have quit woik
and it is expected that they will short
ly resume. However, these fats are
of little value so far as the considera
tion of the tariff question is concerned
excepting as tliey show that our pro
tected manufacturers cannot exact
too high figures from the market with
out suffering; for it is a matter of fact
(which the Journal forgets to men-
tion(, that more steel have been im
ported from England in 18J (notwith
standing American over-production)
than have been imported timing the
name length of time during any year
within the last decade.
Another matter which dees uot bear
particularly upor. the tariff question,
but about which it is well enough to
bj truthful, is the matter of railroad
construction. The Journnal says
"that there is a halt in the business of
railroad building." The fact is that
thus far in lt82 about ,000 miles of
new railroad have been bdilt, an am
ount much larger than has been con
structed in any oue year heretofore.
The current number of the Railway
Gazette begins an editorial article with
this sentence: "There is a great deal
of talk heard about the enormous raiir
road construction of the present year,
which is alleged to l e so mu?h In ex
cess of the real needs of th? country,
and which it is thought will have an
injurious effect upon all railroad prop
erties." The Journal, like ihe average
free-trade advocate, never attempts to
deal with matters of fact without deal
ing in matters of fancy.
Now let us look at the argument.
The Journal says that the manufactu
rers have been making a profit of 100
per cent. It also says that a reduction
from SjO to 42 a ton has compelled a
great many of these manufacturers to
stop work. I one hundred per
cent of 12? The original Journal ar
ticle, as it appeared in the Chicago
Tribune, contained the proof that the
larger tirm3 could not afford to sell
steel rails at 812, and that they had
put the price at 842 (below cost ) to find

desires to kill off steel rail manufactu

strates, the very weapon to be used.
The above article was-clipped from
the Omaha Republican of Dec. 6tb,aud
shows that others who pretend to read
the Journal's articles on the we trade
question, have noticed how that pro

Before the memory of the late grand
Jury is entirely obliterated, it woi.1-1
lie well for republicans to impreas up
on the minds of their democratic
friends that the surveyor general of
Nebraska has been thoroughly investi
gated, and that the refusal by a large
majority of the members of the grand
jury to indict is equivalent to an en
dorsement of him as an honest repub
lican oflice-holde,r. This vindicates
republicanism no less than it does .Mr.
George S. Smith, the surveyor general.
It is about a year since the Omaha
Herald which has from time to time
for political reasons done as much
slandering of good men as the next
one began its howl against what is
termed the ".Surveyor's Ring of Platts
mouth." The people had by that jour
nal been given to .understand that in
connection with the office of surveyor
general great and glaring frauds had
been committed. When Mr. Morton
started out on the stump, among oth
er strange devices his banner bore the
Herald's old inscription, "Down with
the Surveyor's Ring of liattsinouth."

of the State Board of Agriculture, that

from tiie success of last year, and the
perfect harmony iu which they worked
is one of the things to recommensl
them. It is no boy's play to take the
place of one of these ofheers during
the state fair, and as each one of them
have been tried and found efficient,
seems to be no reason for a change.

of giving up tried and true officers for
inexperienced ones. Our StaU Board
