Mr. Hurton of the News, cither did
not write the foregoing: or elne he
listened to the representations of
his "attache" and blindly swallowed
very weuk Btory. The comment
of TUB IlEKAU) on the case of
O'Donohoeva. Milton I) Polk and
his father, was in our opinion fully
warranted by the facts in the case
as they were retailed by the elder
Polk. The News is supposed to
liave a fine scent for items, (is a
usual thing, but its editor was not
in court when the case was called,
indeed the News, was conspicuous
for its absence, both in the person
of its editor and its trusted "at
tache," who was the first and princi
pal defendant in the case which at
tracted so much attention from the
public. The IIekald wants its
neighbor to understand that it ifl
responsible for that item of news.
It was published as a legitimate
item of news without conspiracy
or consultation with politicians or
outsiders and without thought of
doing our neighbor harm or break
ingdown the News, as that paper
terms it. We are not in that bust
ness, although we have heard that
the mission of the News, since its
"attache" took charge ot its column
was to "swamp The IIekad" and,
however that may be, we want Mr.
Hurton to understand that we do
not run a newspaper for that pur.
pose we are publishing a paper
because that is our business and
trade; it is our profession; we have
been brought up to it and do
not know how to do anything else;
we are not publishing a newspaper
for fame or health, like our neigh
bor; neither are we bothering our
selves over politicians and their in
trigues; nor have we hired a poli
tician to edit our paper. Now as to
the item which seems to annoy our
neighbor, does the News doubt Mr.
John F. Polk's evidence given to the
court and public under the solem
nity of an oath? Or does it prefer
the word of its "attache," which has
proved so disastrous to the father?
If it does, of . course thai settles it
with that paper, but we want to say,
right here, that we stand ready to
satisfy anybody else of sound mind
that the old father's word is bettei
than the son's, and we are prepared
to prove it It won't do to charge it
to politicians, nor sny the old
gentleman is mistaken on the wit
ness stand. This was a civil action
right here in court, in the city of
I'lattsmouth, and in the presence of
our citizens, and if a newspaper
hasn't the right to comment on the
fact of that trial THE IlKKALD
wants to know it. Listening to
that testimony we, like the balance
of the spectators, felt justly indig
nant that such wrongs should go
unpunished in this community,
and we commented on the case in
that spirit and in no other. Per
haps the News can explain why its
trusted iattache" was not in court
to deny the testimony of his father,
and to clear his skirts from the
charges made against him? Here
was a very excellent opportunity to
make a denial, and a much more
appropriate place than the columns
of the News, when we consider that
Milton P. Polk was the first defend
ant in the case and within a few
yards of the court room when the
case was in progress of trial. We
have more evidence than was given
on that trial, Mr. Dtirton, and we
hereby notify you that our com
ments were tame when compared
with the facts in the case.

CAPTAIN Yocum of Hastings was
eentenced Friday to the peniten
tiary for one year, the lightest sen
tence that the court could impose'
and last Saturday, the next day
after the sentence had been pro
nounced, AdjutantGeneral Vifquain
canied to Hastings a pardon for
Mr. Yocum from Governor Hoyd.
There will be but one verdict on
this action of the governor and that
will be a verdict of approval.
Nothing but the letter of the law
convicted Captain Yocum. The
jury, the judge, the spectators at
the trial and the people over the
state all felt that equity demanded
that Captain Yocum, who defended
his home and family from the lies
of a traducer, ought to be justified
in his act and told to go hence a
free man. Hut the law in its strict
letter has been complied with and
the governor has exercised his
right under the law and given
justice to a man who stands,
though convicted under the law,
justified in all that he has done to
protect his home and his fireside.

We are all more or less dependent

and protection enables us to pro

If our farmers were to grow noth

steel rails, they would have no
home market of any value for
either; but by protecting every
thing that can be grown or manu
factured, we make the best use ot all

are scheduled, that have their places
in our census returns, to those
things which belongs to the higher

ture. I congratulate you, not so
much upon the rich farm lands of
your country as upon your virtuous
and happy homes. The home is the
best, as it is the first, school of citi
zenship. It is the great conserva
tive and assimilating force. I should
despair for my country if American
citizens were to be trained nly in
our echools, valuabld as their in
struction is. It is in the home that
we first learn obedience and respect
for law. Parental authority is the
type of beneficent government. It
is in the home that we learn to love,
in the mother that bore us. that
which is virtuous, consecrated, and
pure. I take more pride in the fact
that the republican party has al
ways been the friend and protector
of the American home than aught
else. I3y the beneficent homestead

lion of homes; by the Emancipation
rrochmation it converted a million
cattle-pens into homes. And it is
still true to those principles that
will preserve contentment in our
homes. I gTeet you as men who
have been nurtured in such homes.
and call your thoughts to the fact
that the republican party has al
ways been, and can be trusted to be,
friendly to all that will promote
virtue, intelligence and morality in
the homes of our people. Benj.

is taken from a ninrning paper:

The trial of Dr. Charles Bingham
