PLATTSMOUTH, APRIL , Ex-Senator Tiichmas, of Ohio, fell u I ion the ?teps of his residence in Co luml.iH, Ohio, the otlici tiny hrenkinjf his arm mul injuring himself severely. lie iri quite hii old ninn noil an injury of this kinil may rovi a very Herioii matter with him. ITl-MAJik is sixty-eijjht years old ami in failing health. Very evidently the oM chancellor will have to step aidf in u short time ami permit wme one stronger : tlian he, ti hliou! Jtr the cares and n?- ou.-dliiities of Nic office of chancellor ol the (Jerman nupirc lie has nerved his country and kin; with zeal. The following dispatch shown his condition: Prince liinvirkV nixth eight birthday was celebrated in Germany Sunday. A personal vi-it wan paid by the, Emperor William to the prince chvinjellor, who also received C l'lr ltll:lt:ry I11CS4 from t'-ekin of llaviri i an I oM.cr titled p .p'.i-. ttismark wm not well enough to tak-.f a crrinjj ride which he had planned for thediy. iii:adi'allt me democratic lieia is narrowed down ti Uuclt: S.nuiuv Til den and Mother IJutler another bright exhalation, has listened to its settnm over in ltliode Islmd. The rxan with the broom c.une down too soon, and the great and pure party of democracy uewd expoct nothing from little Iihody witli her shot gun candidate. 1 he only result of the Sprague combination was to bring out the full vote of that little state increasing it Jo over the vote of 1 i3t year: of this increase the republicans gained some 3,000 so that the combined strength of the demo crats and independents taking the to tal vott.- polled shows a very insignifl "cant portion of thp vote belonged to t'i lrftfejud independent party. Y:iic man without a boom, in the vy n cortcspou lent epcak of the new postmaster geueral, Judge re--Iiain, of Indiana. In vi::-.Tinr hi.- record and claims to public meulioa, wen.it ice th ; judg" was o;ifj v Ii.it ol a politician under senator Morton, and a brave eioldier during the war of the rebeiliou. for all of which President Graut. during his first term, appointed him U. 6. ditri:t j:i lg for one ol'the Iudiatia districts; con-eq j -ully, Judge Gru?ham goes trom tho bench to the cabinet. All we cau see in the nomination to dis tinguish it, U the fact that one of the so called doubtful etuto-s takes the post office portfolio. As we under stand if, thi nomination was not made from Indiana because good tim ber ran out in Ohio, but b;u:iue President Arthur d;ii;J to intro duce the Uoosier eleiu-mt into his cabinet. The Herald makes this ex planation out of regard Tor its many Ohio readers. (). April oth iu the snprciue court of Iowa, was risii-ticd'the great argu ment on the validity of the prohibitory nmitidincut to the Iowa constitution which was adopted by an overwhelm ning majority ol sovereigns of tii.i gre.t Tit?. Abb? ..inei. upon rehearing thoroughly di..-ii I ev-ry braicn of the case, having the advan tage of both the? majori; i ami mi nority opinions of the court to guide them direct to the peculiar views . Jakeu by that t.-ibunV, of tho question before it. In one sense this is a case of r.: markable signifii a:ic. It does not come up before th ; great court ot last resort in Iowa, up.m any qtits! tiqn effecting the power of the legb latureof thit iatr, "to sulm't tie proposition to the elector. Tin re an; no questions involved whici call for tho inttrpositiou of that" high tri bunal to preserve the rights of theciti izen i"ro:u the tyranuy of the fut ; but on the contra-y, t lie opponents of the ameudmcnt are aekiug the court to set aside this express vl wi'l of the people iipou a mere ttchnica' iiy. The public arc waiting with so licitude, uudifruised, the linal action of thi con't. TtlK municipal election in Omaha doesn't appear to yet be over; alt hough all parties concerned unite in agreeing that the gallant Col. received a major ity of votes cast. The question pre sented is a difficult one to solve in a popular government, when the will of th sovereign is expressed by a secrtt ballot "who struck Billy Patterson" has never yet been authoritatively dt- cided; and just who voted for Mayor Chae. in a great city like Omaha. where political morals(?) are pure no ditrencn whether the disciple has sat at the feet of Dr. Miller or Edward Rosewater, we are afraid will never be certainly known. Pottenger says he once ran for an office in Cast county, in primitive days when everybody was honest, and as tho return came in a report sained gener al credence that he (Pottenger) bad re ceived one vote in Salt Creek precinct; whereupon the Judge says, everybody from Salt Cieek claimed to have cast that vote, and loudest and most vehe ment, among the prominent citizens up there was Hon. A. H. Fuller (now of Ashland) who not only assured the Judge that he voted for him. but that he had put in several hard days' work for him, to secure his election. When lo and behold, the returns from .Salt Creek precinct, when opened, showed tvtry vote cast for his opponent 1 The moral we draw from all this is, that the Omaha papers are wasting a good deal of lim3 and printer's ink over a subject of very little impor tance; just "who voted for Chase" will remain "one of the things no fel low can ever find out." TlIK policy of this great government in its childish treatment of the Iudiuii question, in beautifully exemplified by the following characteristic epistle from Mr. "IJlue Heron" a big Sioux chief. The request is on a p.ir with the average im portant business transacted between these heads of the Indian nation aud oar government : an appeal. Tho following letter, from a Sioux In. dian w.is read at the Indian offije today: Pin;-; Uiik;k AuEN'cr, Dakota, March 20. Hon. (.'omiui.sioner Indian All iirs, Washington Sir: I am a friend ot the (ireat Father and am go:vin the white man's way. 1 have noticed, the white men cutting wood,ntid I thought I w:u'd ic UK-; a wuiie man ami ciiop Home wood for my wife. A piece of wood llew up and put out my right eye, aud n;iw I would like the (ireat Father to send me another eye. I caa have it j.ut in here. I haw always been a friend of the white mmi. and am bringing my children up in the white man's w iy.-i. am getting old and wish my father would send me a cine. When you send the eye please seud a brown one, as that is the color of my oilier eye. I ln-pe the Great Father will do as I a.-.k. I shake hands w.th a god heart. Your friend. (Signed) Ii.i:e IIi-:hox. Mr. Heron evidently has the ear of the great pale face chief at Washington; and the 1 1 KitALD quo! es tho correspondence upon his part as the first authentic record of any 4 big Injun'' chopping wood for his wife. Now then, if upon a comple e and thorough invtsiigalpiu it turns out that .vir. Ulue Heron has spoken the ti uih, in Ihrs resyect, t Ids father at Washington, we ice in favor of tit! s great and gloiious government straining a point aud giving the old maa a glass eye :;nd a walking stick. Any reasona ble request like this, maoe by the head man oj a great nation, su.-li as 13. ue Heron evidently represents, ought to be granted without parsimony upou tiie part of this government as to the price of the eye or the cxpcnsivenes of the stick. The Heualu would suggest that the cane be a "wet elm club" of sufficient licit a;id proportion, so that if the old gentleman should use it to regulate his wife and family or should desire to go upon the warpath in his old age after some In lian ae.it, it will prove useful as well as ornamental. 15.' all means the interior department should send cipan.c aud eloquent representative with that caue, to make an appropriate presentation speech. Lit the thing be done in a style worthy of the diplomatic intercourse of two friendly governments. and let tins great nation make itself soli 1 with the "bully old boy with a (brown) glass eye" ere it ia too l ite. Temperance Department VDder tt.e auspices of the W.C. T. U. riattsiuoutb COSDICTKK BY MS 9. .1. X. WlsK - To .vhoni a'l coaunuaications lor this depa:t ment should lie addressed. A corrf suoiident asked me recently, "Why there was such apathy on the subject of temperance iu Piatts mou;hV" This question lias occurred to me mauv times when I h.-iv stn how comparatively few are interested in a subject which should occupy the minds of every thoughtful person, who can tee what evii influence ten saloons in one small place can exert. 1 have visited within two or three dis a hou-e with two families thirteen children altogether clothed in ragf dirty, helpless, hopeless and hungry. I inquired if it was sickness that h id brought such destitution, and wa answered luiedy. "N'o whisky!" Its too bad. The fathers of these children are kind, well-meaning men, but so weak! 'i hey cannot pass all these I saloons with tha few dimes they have earned, and so these little childien j mu4t suffer and g-j hungry, grow up ! aud be turned loose to fill our peuiten- j taries. lint I do not know that our people ar more apathetic ou tha sub- ' ject of temper mce than any usher pul- j lie interest. Nothing but an election ' on soinj startling eveut can create j more than a ripple of interestin their mind.H. I visited in my brief absence of last week a small town of a thousand in- habitants. The streets are nicelv j paved, beautiful park, fountain and water works, elegr.ut homes and churches, and best of all. a fine reading room aud circulating library, well sus tained and patron iztd by liberal, pub lic spirited citizens. There are no saloons in that place no liquor sold within its limits; no poor people; no shabby tumbledown houses. The workingmen get good wages and spend them for the beneflt of their farnili-s. It is certainly a model city, and it is peculiarly aggravating to me that we can see the state of thingn in our city, and knowing the cause, quietly en dure it. What if a city without saloons is not quite so lively. Far bettei the streets should be overgrown with grass than worn off with the reelings of an army of drunkards. We do not think there is anything particularly interesting in the sight of men staggering along our streets or particularly elevating to the minds of our children to listen to their insane babbling. Hut then people like to see something going on; and if the victim is not one of their own friends, why Bhould they concern themselves as to where he gets his liquor. An in tense and all-pervading desire to look out for number one seems to be the pre vailing characteristic of most of the Flattsmouth teople. I received a letter from Mrs. Cooley a few days since, in which she says: "In Beatrice they have a reading room .Hid loan library which pays its way, room rent, librarian and all, and are doinc: fine work. Ai, Kearney they also have a reading room well kept, and well patronized, and are doing good work in helping save the boys." She adds that "Plattsmouth, the Koine of Nebraska, will surely tut be so far behind the other cities of this great corn state, while other states are send ing to her their young men. Let hr not fail to have for them some pure place of refuge whan the cares of the day are dropped. Surely the business men of Plattsmouth cannot make a better investment than in a reading ro m. Can y -ui not make them see it ? Not from a selfish standpoint alone, but for the sake of '(lOd, l.omo and native land.'" She ends her letter with the one injunction "Wo k." There is one thing that is gratifying to me whib; wo can see that very little is being done Acre public septiment throughout the country is being en listed on the side of temperance. Hardly a leading paper now that does not have its "Temperance Column,' and able pens are bt ing wielded, and great intellects are brought to bu-ir on this reformation subject. It is weli that it is so. God's mills grind slowly, but none the les3 sure, and despairing men and women who have well-nigh given up hope may t ike fresh courage, and in patience wait His appointed time, always remembering that "lie lielps them who helo themselves." and t they would wia they must work with every means within their power, leaving the result to Ilins "who doeth all things well."
