The Swiss Confederation is having
a peculiar experience with intemper
ance, which demonstrates nu import
ant point. Previous to the year 1874,
the sale of intoxicating liqars was
held under more or less strict regula
tion by each canton for itself. That
year a constitutional clause was
adopted removing all restrictions on
internal trade aud commcce. so far
as they limited citizons of Switzer
land. The courts held that this ex
tended to the manufacture aud sale
of intoxicauts, and the result wis un
limited license. After eight years of
thiei, the republic has awakened to tho
fact thai the enormous increase of
drinking threatens not only the pros
perity of the people but the existence
of the nation We need not go into
details except to say that drinking
habits have not only become nearly
universal, but universally excessive;
aud it is doubtful whether they Rave
no; become bo fixed that remedial
legislation will be defeated. There is
profound alarm among the statesmen
of tho republic. This experience
demonstrates tho fact, which has
been questioned, that the increase of
the number of dram shops iucreases
the numbers and the .excesses of
drinkers; aud conversely that the re
ductions of the facilities lor drinking
reduces the amount of drunkenness.
Up to 187-1, the Swiss were noted for

their success in forcing the means
of subsistence, aud even a good de

rugged and unpromising land.
Now they have before them the pros

I would urge total abstinence as
the bestgeourse for every man. It is
the best for him intellectually, mor
ally, and socially. When w remem-
ter the problems of life aud destiny
that press upon u? as immortal be
ings, I think that we must feel that
wc need the clearest possible intellect
and the clearest and most transpar
ent spirit and heart to meet and set
tle those qut-slious. But how impos
sible for a bruin poisoned with the
fumes of alcohol ts emit healthy state
ments, or to think correctly upon
these great questions. In pursuing
our calling and business in life we
need an unclouded brain. In the
able discussions which we have had
on the question of liceuse, I remem
ber that a merchant said, "A prohibi
tory law would be the greatest injury
to trade that, could possibly be
brought to bear upon it." I could
not help coupling this with another
statement concerning a very success
ful merchant, viz., that it was his
custom before sending a man a large
bill of goods to give him a good din
ner aud plenty of liquor. And this
preparation, he said, rarely failed to
make a better customer. Aud the-c
is not a little shrewdness iu this. Dr.
Tyler says the distinguished charac
teristtc of inebriates is "plausibility."
They think themselves milliouarev,
often able to buy anything and pay
any price for it. And hence thejrca
sou for giving a customer that which
will so greatly enhance his estimate

Senator Manderson's Speech Follow.
lowing his Election.
Mr. President nnd Gentlemen of tho Senate
and House of Representative of tho Stale of
. Nebraska :
Oppressed with a sense of tho deep
obligation I am under, I find it diffi
cult to say auything at this time.
You have gone through a most weari
some contest. For thirty days it has
continued aud I congratulate you
that as the result of tho contest from
this republican state, .a republican
senator has been elected. I am a re
publican. I glory in the fact, uud de
light to contemplate tho history of
the party, of which I have been
member. But while a republican I
aim for something higher. I am
citizen of this glorious state aud J go
to the high place to which I am elec
ted, us a citizen of this state of Nc
braska, representing, I hope uo fac
tion, uo party, but the interest of cv
cry party and of all ports of tho citi
zeiiship of this commonwealth. I am
a republican, but I glory not in the
past of that party, but I glory that
within it there is stamina, there is en
ergy, there is determination not to
live upon the past, but to progress
with the march of events into the fu
ture. Iu the place that I am to fill, I
assure you that whatever there is of
wrong that may be remedied by my
action it will have my best aud earn
est endeavors. Tlierc are agitated in
the uatiouul cougress, questions of
vital importance not only to tho peo
ple of this slate but to the nation at
lurge. I submit to you that the past
history AT ihe republican parly Bhows
that it is able and willing to grapple
with these issues aud briisit them to a
successful U-i-miiialiou. But I Uo not
iutcud to make n speech, but simply
to thank you tor the high honor that
you have conferred upon ine. All
that there is iu mc shall be devoted
honestly aud faithfully to the per
formance of Ihe duly to which you
have elected me. I look forward to
no Six years ol" ease. I know that it
means a term of hard work and earn
est labor. 1 believe there is some
thing higher and nobler iu the posi
tion of a senator of the United Slates
than that of being tho simple medium
through which the patronage of this
government shall be dispensed. That
is a part of the duly perhaps, but 1
look upon it as the mcauest part. I
certainly do not desire that tin high
ollice.slioiild become a mere broker
shop for tiic distribution ol ofliccs. I
sec something higher than thai and I
will sol my aim higher. I may falter
ou my road to reach it, but I assure
you thai it will not be because I do
not desire to reachlhul high aim, but
it will be from an inherent weakness
beyond my control. I will not detain
you further. The president of tho
senate cautions mc that time is pro
gressing, aud that you arc anxious to
come tw an adjournment. Gentlemen
of the convention, I heartily thank
you, aud iu gitiug you my thanks, I
desire to return them also to the gen
tlemen who have competed with mo
for this high honor. It is to the cred
it of this state that we come out of
this fight with uo bi'teruess what
ever. For the geu lemen who have
ask?d support at your hands I have
no words but those of the highest
pniise and most fraternal regard.
Again I thank you, gentlemen, for
this high honor.
Charjres Against Dr. Matthewson.
Charges have been made by a news
paper concern in Lincoln that Dr.
Matthewson is cruel to the inmates of
the hospital for the insane, and we
learn that an investigation has been
ordered into the allegations that have
been made in regard to it. We are glad
of this. It is as it should be. Abuses
in insano hospitals and prisons are so
common, aud cruelties are frequently
so inhuman and monstrous, that the
people cannot be two jealors or watch
ful over these institutions. It ia hard
ly necessary for us to say te those who
know Dr. Matthewson, or who know
our estimate of the man, that it is
probably, and we believe that it is cer
tainly not true that he is ever cruel to
any inmate of the insane hospital," or
to any othsr human being. If cuuelty
h.is been practiced in the insane hos
pital it has been done without Dr.
Matthewson's knowledge, but still, if
it has been done by his assistants, he
will be, and rightfully, held responsi
ble for it. In this connection we wish
to state a fact.
It was only the day before the charge
was made against Dr. Matthewson
that a leading mechanic of this titj,
Mr. Perkins, who is now putting iu
the steam heatiug apparatus of the
Herald establishment, spoke to us
about Dr. Matthewson's remarkable
kinduess to the insane. Mr. Perkins
spoke of Dr. Matthewson's peculiarty
generous aud kind treatment of the
lunatics as it came under his own per
sonal observation when he was engag
ed in doing for the insane hospital
building what he is now doing for the
llerald. building. He spent some time
in the hospital, and had a rare oppor
tunity to observe all that went on in
the handling of its unfortunate in
mates. Mr. Perkins, who is a very in
telligent and reliable man, has worked
in similar institutions ia th6 same
way in other states, and this led him
to speak of Mr. Matthewson by com
parison with others, and he was full
of praise of him.
The Lincoln newspaper, concern
must bring a first-rate class of wit
iosds to prove to the satisfaction . of
the people of Omaha that Dr. Matthew
son is cruel to the insane, or to any
body else, and we shall wait upon the
result of the investigation with entire
conOdeuM that the charge will fall, as
a unmitigated slander upon as good
and capable and . humane a ..man as
ever walked this soil. OojAlia Ueiald.
An Iron Palace.
Geo. L. Huston, of Parkersburg,
Chester county. Pa., will build a pala
tial prlvatomans.on for himself entire
ly of iron, tho foundations being of
solid rock. The architect Is au Eng
lishman whom Mr. Huston recently
met while abroad. The Iron work Is
now being turned out at Coalsville, at
the superstructure is to be of Iron en
tirely. Tho floor of the "Uill, vestibale.
and library will be laid with pollsbod
cast-iron tiles, In w hich dilerent qual
ities of iron will be used to produce
the same variety of color as in ordln
arr tile flooring. All the other floors
of tho house will bd of stout iron
plates firmly bolted to the iron joists
The outside wall and iatlde partitions
all through the structure will be com
posed of two courses of Iron plates
firmly bolted together, so as to be air
tight. These hollow Iron walls and
partitions will be used instead of
chimneys and for conveying heat to
different parts of the house, and for
ventilation. The hot smoke and gases
from the furnaces passing hhrough th
sides of the rooms, in this way will, it
is claimed, be almost suUlci'eut to keep
the house comfortablu In the coldest
weather, so that the heating can be
done with about one-half the fuel re
quired iu ordinary houses.
AU the doors and window-sashes will
also be iron, but will be constructed in
such a light way and so nicely balane
ed upon hinges and weights as to open
and shut as easily as those made of
wood. All the inside walls aud parti.
tious will bo handsomely painted and
frescoed, so as to present the appear
ance of any ordinary house finished in
plaster. Outside, the style of archl
tccture will be light and graceful, and
it will bo painted and ornamented so
as to look as if it was built of wood.
The roof will be of strong boiler-plate,
and on the top, at the convergence of
the four gables, will be a handsome
observatory supported at the four cor
ners by four Ionic pillars of iron. In
Bide tho ornaments will be made ef
the same material. In the parlor will
be a mantel of polished steel, hand
somely ornamented. There will be- a
similar one in the dining-room, upon
which will bo engraved hunting scenes.
In the library will bo a massive man
tel so constructed thai it will look as
if it were made of plg-ircm fused to
Quite a curiosity iu this room will
bo a cabinet for the exhibition of
specimens of iron. This will be con
structed entirely of strongly magne
tized iron, so that all the specimens
will adhere to the back of ii, held in
place solely by magnetic attraction.
In order to guard against the bungling
which which would take place in such
a solid iron structure ou account of
the construction and expansion caused
by ihe heal and cold, there will bo
breaks in the iron at. intervals, which
will be Oiled with rubber, so that when
expansion takes place there will be
room for it without producing any
change in the contour of the frame
work. As much as possible of the
furniture will also bo of iron, so that
if it takes fire in any part, nothing can
burn but the carpets and the few ar
ticles of wood that may be within
reach of the flames. The house will
be an architectural and scientific curi
osity. Mr. Huston admits that it may
cost twice or three times as much as
an ojdinary house, but claims that
with a little attention it will last
for centuries without repairs, aud will
never cost a cent for insurance. Read

Peculiar Train Accidents.
The Des Moines and Ft. Dodge road
takes the cake for unheard-of train ac
cidents. The other day a freight train
was coming down the road in which
were several cars of hogs. Between
WauKee and Ashewa the engineer felt
a disagreeable, jerky motion of the
train, and whistled down brakes. The
rear truck of the second car in the
train was missing, and the hogs were
in a heap at the fallen end of the car(
making a most terrific squeal, A brake
man went back a mile and a half, but
could not find the missing truck. A
passenger coach was attached to the
train, in which were five women, a
babe and ten men. The women and
babe were stored in the engine cab.

and brought to the city.
A few years ago a freight train was
going north on this road, and while
halting at a station the forward trucks
of a car were discoverer missing, the
car being held up by the coupling. A
run back of six miles found the truck
down in tiie ditch sound as a dollar.
How the truck got off the track with
out derailing the traiu is a mystery
not yet solvsd.
Last Sunday the Chicago uud Rock
Island had a singular accident from a
broken rail. An engine and six freight
cars loaded passed over the break, five
empty cars jumped the track aud clear
the roadbed, the remaining cars of the
train crossed the break and closed up
with the forward section at least that
is the way the train went into the first
station, where the train tneu found
the train five cars short, which were
traced back to the break. .
