Antony Hies, of North Platte, who
who was advertised by the I3ee, as a
defaulter, a fevf days since, has dis
covered that one Thomas Patterson,
of North Platte, sent the special to the
Bee which contained the libel com
plained of, and has had Mr, Patterson
arrested on a criminal charge of libel.

The organization of a law and order
society is a good Move, and if properly
carried out will be productive of good.
There is no intolerance or fanaticism
about a movement looking to the en
forcement of law iu our muiiicipal af
fairs; let it be aimed at a general up
holding of our laws and the enforce
ment of city ordinances. All good
citizens who have business interests to
care for, property to protect, and lami
lies to guard, can endorse such a move
ment as this.
Secretary Teller has addressed
the following formai note to Brewster,
attorney general, in regard to the claim
of the United States agaiust the Union
Pacific railroad company, which our
readers will notice calls for the com
mencement of proceedings iu court to
settle the matter. Evidently the aoveru-
inent means business iu this matter.

The IIonorabe Attorney General
of the United States:
Sir: I have the honor to transmit
herewith a copy of the letters ad
dressed me the It th ult. and tth inst.,
respectively, by the commissioner of
railroads, and tne exbibus accompa
nyinsr the former relating to the
moneys due the United States by the
Union Pacific Hail road company. The
commissioner recom menus that ms
letters and exhibits be transmitted to
you (to be considered with his letters
and txhibits of the 2d of February
last), for the institution of legal pro
ceedings to obtain judgment against
said company for whatever sum may
be found due the United States, and
for a judicial determination of what
are the "net earnings" within the mean
ing of the act of the Tth of May.
1S73. lie find? the sum of ?35,
9S3 to be due the United States from
said company for the year ending the
tlst f December, lf-82. This added
to the sum due the 81st December. '81
(aoi,t:n), makes a total of $1.77.743
due the United States on the 31st
of December, 1882. Before trr.nsinit
tinir to you the papers herewith. I deem
ed it proper to make a formal demand
on the president of said company for
said sum. I inclose herewith a copy of
my letter to him of the 21st ult. making
such demand, and of his reply thereto
of the 1st mat. The views of he com
nuseioner of railroads on Dillon's letter
are expressed in his letter to me of the
8th inst.; copy herewith. Because of a
retusal of the company to accede to
my demand for a settlement of the
sum due, I concur in the recommenda
tion of the commissioner that such ju
dicinl proceedings be instituted to en
force the demand as may iu your judg
ment best pre to project the inter'"5!
of the United States. Very respectful
ly, H. M. Tkllek. Secretary.

good people up in that
country, we are inclined to the opin
ion a little reconstructing at horn (in
that uMtiict) would save a good deal
of unnecessary and uncalled for scan
dal abroad especially as these com
plaints all, or nearly all, seem to be lo
calized in that particular territory.
The JIeuald may be pardoned for sug
gesting to these gentlemen, who are
writing these abusive articles, that a
little self examination would Jnot be
a nibs ia this matter. It is always a
pretty good idea to know that one's
own household is in order before un
dertaking to reconstruct our neighbors.

The latest and best evider.ee of this
ictollerant spirit, which Las sent
martyers and witches to the stake and
dumping hoard, is the cage of the chief
civil service examiner, Mr. Keint, from
Pennsylvania, a man chosen by the
board of civil service examiners as a
sort of head tutor iu the civil service
seminary at Washington, on account of
his peculiar fitness, he (Mr. Keim)

the ring with the civil service co!t.
Mr. Keim is an editor of a reform paper,
he has written and worked ior a prac
tical bill upon this subject that would
cure the many manifest wrongs of our
public service, and he is all right, until
Mr. Curtise discovered he wa3 once, in

controlled entirely by his hates and

by the following oflicial document ad

of Massachusetts to Hon. Chas. J. Fol

Dear Sir : I have the honor to call
your attention to a matter of very con
siderable importance to this Gouimou

colony of that empire. Bylaws which
trench very nearly on the penal they
have made these poor people of Ire
land paupers, and then, to get rid of
feeding them at governmental expense
send tliem to us; perhaps after they
have selected tho best of thetn to send
to their own colonial dependencies.
England ought not, in my judgment,
to bo ueruiitted to empty her alms
houses into tho United States, nor
ought she to be permitted in Ireland,
where she has not almshouses to care
for the people that her laws have made
paupers, to impose them as a burden
upon state charities.
May I ask of you, Mr. Secretary,
therefore, to take such means as to
your good judgment may seem legal
and proper to prevent the landing of
such deportations, at least within the
limits of Massachusetts; and I promise
you whatever aid in that regard the

the 23d ultimo, in relation to the de
portation of pauper emigrants to this
country under the auspices of the British
government, with its enclosure, has

for such action as he may deem appro

' A moderate one, I presume. We
have got to raise too much money to
carry on the government to talk about
free trade, and a tariff for revenue
only amounts to nothing. -I would
like to see a tariff law passed that
meant anything elsa than a tariff for
revenue. There never has been, and
there never wi'l be. So it brings us
down to the consideration of a reform
in the tariff, a wise discretion in affix
ing duties, putting on luxries all they
will bear, and admitting a good deal of
raw material where it will not impair
the traffic in such material at home.
It will be this ability to discriminate
and wisely impose duties that will
command the attention cf our legis
lators, and a wise tariff modification
will meet with the approbation of the
whole country. Neither protection
nor free trade ought to enter into the
tariff platform of the party, when we
speak of those two doctrines as a

question expressed by Senater Kernan,

distinguished statesman among the
back seats in the political holiness
