On yesterday thfli answer of retpond
1 'i : 1 1
ents in the matter of ."The State of Ne
braska ex. rel. Robert D. Silvers," was
filed in the Supreme court of the State.
This answer shows there are two sides
to the question, and very important
ones too. Of course discussion upon
the merits of the case now, since the
whole controversy has passed into the
hands of the courts, for speedy trial
would be out of place, and the Herald
will content itself by saying that this
journal was fully satisfied when Mr.
Silvers selected his forum and went be-
fore it with his erlevauce. We were
satisfied if Mr. Silvers had a merito
rious case his cause would be in much
aafVr hands in the tribnnal ha has se--
lected than in the care and keeping of
the Democratic Press of the State,
Now the public will know the reason
wbv Mr. Silvers did not receive that
contract and the Boar J of Public Lands
and Buildings as well as the Contract
ors, will all -feel that this matter has
taken the proper direction. ," j
i No matter how justifiable those gen
tlemen may have been in conducting
the letting of this , Important contract,
the great difference between the bids
of Messrs.' Stout and Silvers existed,
and was the basis for the serious char
ges that were berng made against those
gentlemen; and now, if upon trial and
examination before a competent court
if. Safnnnd that, tho hnaril wna ricrfit. in
tetting tnig contract as it was let, it
wiU elld the matter fore?er. If, on the
othcr nan(j, the contrary should appear,
it is due the public that they be placed
iu possession of the whole truth.
Apropos of the discussion through
out the State, as to the successor of
Justice Lake upon the Supreme Bench
of Nebraska. The Herald wishes to
say that the ' Republican party cannot
be too careful in its selection of a can
didate for this very important office.
The man who takes Judge Lake's place
upon the supreme bench will have no
easy tast oeiore mm ; ne win oe as
suming the responsibility of taking up
the work of one of the ablest jurists in
the northwest ; his labors and his work
will be in constant contrast with that
of his predecessor; his knowledge of the
law and his ability to give it proper ex
pression cannot be covered up.
Justice Lake has been upon the lench
since the jer l867 some fifteen years;
. " a. ' 1
he came to tne Dencn a successim prac
titioner and'ripelawyer, with a fine
reputation ; hi3 long term of service
upon the bench, has but added to, and
rouuded up that.reputation,so that he
will leave tha'tS tribunal universally
honored and respected by the profes-
sion. UDOn Questions or. practice, we

We hope to see a sound, ripe and accom

We think the State would be very for
tunate should this gentleman be con
tinued as a member of our Supreme
Court. We hope the man who takes
his place will be as honest, fearless and
able as he. ,
It was said the other day, by a gen
tlemar., whose name has been promin
eutly mentioned for this place, that he
thought it would be a most fortunate
thing for our state if Judge Lake
would consent . to remain upon" the
bench; this gfnfl"'tnan who '.had ('jtist
been in attendance upon that court.

court would be com pelled to grant a
re-trial in the Matt Simmerman ' case

xnai me recora in tne case 6nowcu a
gross mis-trial from beginning to end.
That not even the official character of
the officers who attempted to arrest
Simmerman, and his confederates was
pretended to be shown; that the jury iu
the case, after the evidence was all
submitted, arguments had, and charge
of the court delivered, were permitted
to go and view the place w here the
murder was committed ot consider that
that other evidence in making up their
verdict said he, it takes fearless and

the popular clamour in this state, and
fairly construe and administer the law
in these criminal cases.
It is the plain duty of our supreme
court to see that the forms of the law
are observed and the citizen guaran
teed a fair and impartial trial in the
trial courts, and anything short of this,
upon the part of that tribunal, would
render its memlters unfit and danger
ous men to fill the exalted positions
We mention the Simmerman case.
because of the wholesale criticisms al
ready indulged in, in certain quarters
of the state, upon our supreme court,
on account of that case, and
for the further reason that if this
noted case should be reversed the nom
ination of Justice Lake's successor will
in all human - probability, be - made
amid the heat of a continued war
upon that body from the same locali
ties whore the present diasatIsaction
exists; hence we think under the cir
cumstances and the condition of the
public mind, the Herald is warranted
in venturing to caution the party that
it cannot be too careful in the selection
of its nominee as Judge Lake's success
or. We know Nebraska contains ma
ny competent gentlemen among the
profession who would serve the state
in this position with honor and credit.
We say to the party, see to it that gen
tlecn of thi3 "amp are considered in
making this nomination; see to it that
no man is selected upon any other issue
than that of his ability and attainments
both as a ripe lawyer, and a just man.

"Much is said about the superior

"I can best answer by mechanical il
lustration. You have seen descriptions
of the recently invented cast Iron cat, a
machine full of springs, claws and buzz
saws, the whole looking like an infuri

Another name has been added to the
long list of distinguished men who
liavo been removed by death this year,
and a figure that has been conspicuous
for the last thirty years in American
politics has fallen by the decay of age.
Moutgomciy Blair, of Maryland, the
last member of Lincoln's famous cabi
net, died Friday at his residence, "Sil
ver Springs," just across the Maryland
boundary of the District of Columbia,
and only u few miles from Washing
ton. Mr. Blair was a politician of the
old school, and has been a leader in
three political parties, changing his
views, as the skin ot a man is said to
change every once in so many years.
He was educated lor a soldier, and
graduated from West Point Mittary
Academy in 1836. He served in the
Florida war under Gen. Winliel dScott,
and at its expiration resigned, and went
to ist. L.OU13 to study law with his fath
er, I'rancis 1. JJIair. He entered poli
tics at once as a w hig, and was elected
Mayor of that city iu 1842. Then he
was elected a Judge, aud at the expira
tion of bis term removed to Maryland,
where he has since lived. His first
great effort in legal practice was as
counsel in the celebrated Died Scott
case, and he was afterward appointed
Solicitor of the Department of Justice
by President Tierce. In lcoo he loined
the Republican party, and in 1800 was
an elector on the Lincoln ticket. In
1861 he was made Postmaster General,
and remained in that office during most
of Lincoln's first Presidential term. In
1872 he went over to the Democratic
party, and has since been ranked with
the most extreme Bourbons, the inter
ests of Mr. Tildeu having eueared his
attention. His last office was that of
Representative in the Maryland Legis
lature, in which he introduced a Series
of revolutionary resolutions during the
electoral ooant of 1876. Mr. Blair re
sided in Washington in a mansion
nearly opposite the White House, and
practiced law in that city.
