Tiik republican primaries were well
attended upon 13 1 evening, and good
men were nominated for the council.

Jt is not probable that the assistant
postmaster general, Mr. Frank Ilatton,
will receive the appointment of post-
master general, for the reason that a
verykinlluential portion of he press of
the country are bitterly opposed to
hitn. Especially is this the case in
" president Arthur's own state. It is
claimed by many that Mr. Ilatton is
not a large enough man mentally for
such a position, and that th Iowa
delegation in Congress aro opposed to

zealous astronomers who wisli to see
the exhibition at its full will have to
go, though the way is long and diin
cult. Two Freieh expeditions are be
ing fitted out. Fugland will doubtless
send one, and one is being talked up
in this country. The eclipse "is to be
an unusually long oa nearly six
minutes and the astronomers hope to
gain from it additional knowledge con
cerning the sun's corona, the zodiacal

Wk have upon our table a copy of
the American Tribune, a twelve page
beamtifully printed newspaper from
.St. Louis, Mo. We hav8 glanced
through it in order to discover if pos
sible its mission, and conclude it is t:
be devoted to the "valley of the Mis
sissippi," the removal of the national
capital to St. Louis, and the choosing
of a simou puie tirst-class statesman
from Missouri as president of the
United States; all of which enter
prises doubtless the American Tribune
considers perfectly feasible, and as St.
Louis is doubtless one of the most
healthy moral cities iD the United
States containing ambitious statesmen
who woaild if pressed hard enough ac
cept the Presidency of this great re
public provided the Tribune suc
ceeds in removing the national cipitol

The Inter Ocean makes note of a
painful rumor tiiat is in
among members of the bsr at Vask
ington that some of the bonorab't
justices of the supreme court are in
the habit of dropping off to sleep dur
ing the argument of cases, and on one
occasion when the legal luminary who
had the floor was not as brilliant aa
usual, it is said that one of the m.ist
distinguished occupants of the bench
actually snored. Perhaps thi- fact
ha3 come to the knowledge of Chief
Justice Waite, for he has ordered the
temperature of the supreme court
room, which has usually Lten about 7..
kept hereafter at 68. But if he de
sires to keep some of the justices
awake he will have to keep it so cool
that it will be necessary for them to
stamp around and slap their chests
continually to avoid being frozen to
death. C. 1J. Nonpareil.
The talk, talk, talk about what the
republican party of the great city ot
Omaha U going to do iu the April elec
tion must end and the fight must be
made or unconditional "phluui!x"bc hid.
The democracy of Omaha have roui
menced actual hostilities by uSaaage at
tack on the right, left and center all at
once what position have becu assigned
the Baihi IUzuoks under the emmand
of Gen. Hose water and the Creightiii.
the IIkuaiji is not yet able to say, but
we apprehend these valiant warriors will
be at the front with their war paint on ;
recent indications, if we can judge any
thing by the parliamentary skirmishes
which have been g'oicg on, would lead
one lo believe that they sre no holiday
soldiers. It in to be hoped that the med
ical director of the Herald staff will be
en hand with etrecbers and splints and
that the hUff will be decently cared for.
It has been urjred with a great deal
of loree that the (J rami Annv of the
itcpublic et apart the 9th day -of
April a a holiday, to be devoted to
rocruitinjj for the f Jrand Army, and

ami appropriate. The 9th of April is

common consent, the people of the
North and South have agreed that
the triumph of brothers over broth
ers should not bo thus perpetuated
in the memory of the fill 11 re genera
tions." This 14 riht, but still says the
Tribune, this is no reason why the
CI rand Army should not within its
organization notice and observe this
day. and so say we. It records the
surrender of the capital of the con-
leueracy, the surrender ot the cap
tain of the confederate armies. It is
the anniversary of the day that end
ed the loii-, weary, waiting and
watching of mot herd and wives for
their boy and husbands both north
and south, to return from the dread
field of battle.
It is t lie anniversary of the day
that heralded the news to the wait
ing, anxious world, that thi? was a
nation to be perpetuated under one
J common tla, in whose air no slave
could breathe; and that iU govern-
ment was to remain in the bauds of
the people, to be administered for
the people and by the people. There
are now about lf-0,000 members ot the
Urand Army of the Republic, whose
names are duly enrolled iu the differ
ent parts of the country, and we hope
the organization in Nebraska will
take steps to recognizeaud observe

The Illinois railroad commission is,
under the law creating that curt,
having some very important questions
to arbitrate between the shipper and
the railroads, regarding the quantity
of goods shipped and the shortage in
weights. The shippers claim that the

goods they ship, or the .-amo falls short

right to produce evidence of such
shortage. The railroads produce their
bills of lading', reading "more or less,':
and say the law makes them the kole

Tne roads stood upon their assumed
