Tiik brutal attack mode by the,
Journal upon General Geo. S. Smith
will simply give to that gentleman
democratic votes he otherwise would '
not get; we know whereof we speak
when we pay this: General Smith has
ived in l'lattsrnouth city for long
je.irs. lie came here some fourteen
years ago with his little family, and
cast his lot among our good people, in
vesting some thousands of dollars in
our city which through hard times
and ou account of the depreciation in
real estate during our dark days, al
most disappeared by the shrinkage of
values; in other words, was almost en
tirely lost. In adversity as well as
prosperity, Gen'l Smith has lived
among you, people of l'lattsmoulh, an
honest, open hearted, genial gentleman,
against whom no man can honestly
say aught. He has paid his debts, pat
ronized the tradesmen of his city, and
lived the life of a kind, generous pub
lic spirited man and citizen. The nom
ination of mayor of this city has come
to him unsolicited upon his part, and
against his wish. He lias been the
choice of his party and friends, who
insist tnat he is needed at this junc
ture in our city affairs, and he isgiing

The men who have been making
this attack upon Gen'l Smith, are,
many of them, comparative strangers
in our midst who do not own one foot
of property in your city, who have
not one dollar's interest in I'latts
mouth, and who have no prospects
ahead of them except that of relying
upon your charity to pick up a precar
ious living. It is far easier, citizens
of 1'lattsmouth, to retail the scurrilous
slanders picked up upon the curb
stones of your public streets, than to
labor honestly in advertising and ad
vancing the good name and fame of
your city and her good citizens, and
righ here the IIekali brands the in
sinuations made against the good name
of General Smith as foul slanders and
falsehoods which should merit the se
verest condemnation from all goi;d
AULOIl DAY PROCLAMATION.
Lincoln, Neb., March 30, 1SS:J.
To the ptople of Nebraska :
The subject of forestry, or tree-plant
ing, is last becoming one ot national mi
portance, and is receiving the careful at
tention of t houghtful minds throughout
cur own country, and in other lands as
The steady and rapid disappearance
of our lore9ts is viewed with up prehen
sion. We are forced to consider the
matter of future demand and supply,and
in view of the facts it becomes u tines
tion of grave moment. Tlio disappear
ance of the natural growth of timber
has been followed in many of ur states
by the drying up of spring! and brooks,
a decreased annual raiu fall and conse-fiu-ut
increased frequency of .seasons of
extreme drouth. The presence of trees
and forests exerts a direct and control
ling influence upon the moisture of the
sir, and amount of rain fall, as well as
serving to lessen the extremes of tem
perature, and greatly modifying tli e fee
verity of climate aud season.
The attention of the general govern
ment has been directed to this matter,
and it has received substantial rccogni
tion at the hands of our national con
gress in the passage of what is known
as the "Timber Culture Act," which has
for its object, the securing of timber up
on our treeless prairies.
Encouragement and incentive, ia the
matter of tree planting is given by the con
stitution of Nebraska; which says, "The
legislature may proyidc that the increas
ed value of lands,by reason of live fences
fruit and forest trees grown and cultiv
ated thereon, shall not be taken into ac
count in the assessment thereof."
The State Board of Agriculture oilers

Tick supreme court of Illinois has
placed ilfclf right upon the the ques
tion of the liability of the Pullman
Palace Car company as a common
carrier. On March 30th, the court
with full bench n-.en(irir, decided
that this Palace Car company was a
common carrier, upon the same foot
ing as a i ail road company. The case
aresc by one Luke Lever bringing a
suit against the company for dama
ge ou account of the company ro-
fusing to permit him to occupy a
sleeping berth upon tender ot the
usual and customary price. This
company arrogated t itself the right
under its rules aud regulations to
carry a passenger if it saw lit. The
court holds that bv the Pullman Pal
ace Car company holding itself out as
a carrier, furnishing accomodations
of that nature to the traveling public
for hire, the business Iias become a
social nccesssity, placing the company
under the same obligations to furnish
accommodations, as railways, ferry
men and innkeepers, upon payment
of regular fares. This settles another
qiic.-tioii of right, so far as Illinois is
concerned, betvrcen corporations aud
the individual, and is a just and
righteous interpretation of the law.
Wu are informed that the suits the
Journal it its libelous paragraph upon
Gen. Ceo. 8. Smith on Saturday hints
at, are the suits against W. L. Ilobbs
by Cas county. There is no use in
any citizen of this city having any ex
cuse to believe this slander about (Jen.
Smith for one moment. The record :s
in Mr. Sho waiters oftice; he is an ac
omn:o laliwg gentleman, and can show
you both judgments against the county
for costs. (Jen. Smith wa.s not the
leading counsel in those cases, but Hon.
George W. Corell, of Nebraska City,
was, aid the cases were under his con
trol. Under decisions of the supreme
court of this state those cases could
not be maintained, and were so de
cided by Judge Pound.
Ouit old friend, Mr. V. V. Leonard
is nominated by the democracy of this
city for mayor. We have told I?ro.
Leonard time aud again to get out of
that crowd, or they would play some
trick upon him that would make him
regret he ever was democrat, and
here he has found verified, our pre
dictions. Sam Wellor's father said to
Sammy, bevaro ot the vidder, Sam
my;" to Iro. Leonard we say, be
ware of the democratic "vvidder;"
she will lead you astray, and then
whcii you refuse to be a pliant sup
pliant tool, to carry out her sohenies,
"will turn and rend you." We wish
V. V. Leonard lots of good things in
the world, and among these, and the
chielcst ot thein is. that he get left on
this mayor business.
