prcstntoue; when the war department

ous and formidable a foe as these Xew

This government should at least have
a standing army large enough to pro
tect our frontier settlers. When an
experiencud ollioer, occupying tlie po
sition General Scholidd does in the
military a"ff.ii:s of this country, makes
the admission, that this able ollicer
made, viz: "that Gen'l Crook is so
short of men, that unless absolutely
necessary he would not uare weaken his
force by the loss of a single man for
a messenger," it tells the whom story.
Leaving out of the question the crim
inal feature of sending useful and
brave officers and men into such
imminent peril, we believe the
result of these campaigns, prosecu

if this policy is to be maintained, why
not send men enough in a single cam

of prosecuting light weight campaigns
two or three times each year. To us
there is no reason in the policy itself

sneaks right out cu the '' color line"
question. Tho Dr. says it is a "race
line," and we guess he i3 about right;
but isn't the Herald a little off in its
charge, that Frederick Douglas, and
the advocates of the colored men's full
political and civil rights, are in favor
uf (uaatjamatioa' We hardly think
the Omaha Herald means to charge
this obj-'ct upon the proponed colored
convention soon to assemble in Wash
ington. It is the old auti-beilurn ar
gument which we used to hear slavery
advocates use against the abolitionists.
We think there was a great deal
more cf this loin down amalgamation
practiced in the days when the "race
line" theory nourished in this country
under the guise of Afric:i Slavery.
Wnerever colored men are denied thi-ir
political and -civil rights, its is perfect
ly proper that they should meet a: d
discuss the matter, and it we n't hurt
any one except it be those who are de
nying them their rights under the law.

At one ol the hoe!s the otla r day, a
drummer went to settle his weekly bill,
which he thought amounted l seven
dollars and a half. The clerk t,l ! him
it was only seven dollars.
''Ain't your rates seven dollars and a
half per week ? asked the drummer.
"Don't you advertise your rates tobc
seven dollars and a half?" inquired !:e
"Then why don't you charge; me sev
en dollars and a hall"? I don't want to
live for less than .any one else. The
house is footing my bills, and there is
nothing mean about me.''
Seeing the drummer so angry, the
clerk took o'f hi.- diamond an 1 e.il iin-
"We are charging you the sniae as
