The Omaha Herald at last unmasks
its batteries upon the II011. James
Laird, our James Fitz James. The
whole calamity seems to be based upon
the affidavit of some disgruntled set
tler, who gives hia case away by admit
ting that he did 1101 know the numbers
f the claim he wauted to enter, and
the further fact that even when he Us
covered he was making, or had made,
an attempt to enter some other and
different piece of land, and bad been
imposed upon by the Land Officers,
and the surveyor, and his own stupidity :
even when advised of his remedy by
contest, he abandoned the claim, be
claims to . have had. If the man's
statement is true in regard to the man
ner iu which the officers of the local
Land office behaved, they perhaps
ought to be overhauled; but the great
expose does not even state a case, so
far, against Congressman Laird and
Simon Kclley. The case 83 made out
by the Omaha Herald locates the "stiuk
ing water" in the sanctum of that
journal. It is very thin.
The Ohio election which will take
place shortly, is. the source of much uu
easiness to the democratic paity in a
national point of view. Judge lloudly
is on the stocks for repairs; his defeat
is already considered certain. A "cruel
war" has broken out, in the midst of
the campaign, between the controlling
factions of the party within the state;
Mr. Pendleton's successor will be cho
sen by the the legislature which is
elected next month; the county of
Hamilton is considered decisive of that
result a fierce contest has been waged
in this county between the McLean,
Book water factions upon the one side,
and the Pendleton factions upon the
other; the result has been, a legislative
ticket is nominated, pledged against
Mr. Pendleton, and a huge bolt has fol
lowed resulting in the nomination of
an independent democratic ticket; this
certr.iuly gives Hamilton county to the
republicans and with it the state; fol-
owing all this, the state will go repub-
icsn, which will have a great effect up
on the presidential outlook for next
year, and the U. S. senate will be as
sured republican, by the return of a
member of that party to the senate in
Mr. Pendleton's place.' The democratic
organ edited by McLean opened fire on
Mr. : Pendleton and savagely denounces
him1 as "-a" traitor to" bis party, while that
gentleman's friends ha?e proclaimed a
war of extermination upon the Book
water, McLean wing of the party; the
republicans enjoy all this and in the
meantime are pushing an aggressive
OVB in Iowa the republican press
is payi :g its respects to to uenerai
Weaver, the psuedo Greenback leader
in that State, who is playing, or at
tempt to play," the part of The'nardier,
(one of Victor Hugo's famous charac
ters in -his Le Jfiserables), who was
first discovered skulking on the battle
field f: Waterloo robbing the dead.
General Wearer's part in the Iowa
campaign seems to be to follow Messrs,
Sherman and Kinne in their joint dis
cussion and prompt , the democratic
candidate; after these gentlemen get
through wita their discussion Mr. Wea
ver has given out that he will hold a
meeting, upon which occasion, he de
votes his time to abusing the republi
can party; the result of all this is evi
dent to all political parties in Iowa.
General Weaver has large democratic
promises if be can by these means suc
ceed in assisting aud aiding the democ
racy to elect their ticket. He is a
democrat, in full sympathy with that
party, but his natural disposition is to
pursue crooked ways in politics to ob
tain his ends. As it is he is beiug most
effectually shown up before the people.
In Nebraska an attempt not altogether
unlike this one, has been made to sell
and deliver the so called antimonopoly
party to the democracy ; but the oigaua
of that ptrty, or many of them, are con
demning the transaction very bitterly.
The scheme ' seems to suit democratic
antimonopolUts very well, but there
publican wing of that party do not
seem to have gone into the antimouop-
oly business in order to get into tbe
democratic party. Tbe Savage dodge

Here area, few tacts about the cus
torn eervicc that ought to citch the
eye of congress : In the Atlanta dis
trict last year, tho receipts were 21
and tho expenses $1,068; in the St. Au
gustine district, receipt $133, expenses
$2.2?3: in the York (Me.) district, re
ceipts S"4, expense $312; in theEJpar
ton district, receipts $819, expenses 85,
165; in the Nantucket (Mass.) , district,
receipt 8202, expenses . 91,391 ; iu the
Petersburg (Ya.) district, receipts $1,
103, expenses $3,337; and in twenty
other districts it cost over $1 to collect
every dollar received. Part of these
places were inland, part on the sea
board. So far as the former are con
cerned, the "immediate transportation"
system is evidently a failure. In the
latter, the ciibtom houses should be
abolished, and an inexpensive coast
guard established, leaving entries to be
made elsewhere. It lequires a great
6tretch of courtesy to hold that public
convenience requires the maintenance
of custom housen where only a few hun
dred dollars is collected annually. The
cost of collection in this city was 3.1
cents on the dollar, in Chicago. 2 0 cts ,
in Milwaukee, G.9 cts., in Detroit, 15
cents; in Cincinnati. 4.1 cts.; in New
York 1.8 ets.

A MONOPOLISTS IDEA OF COM
MUNISM. From the Chicago Tribune.
There is a 11 wspaper in Chicago
which never neglects an opportunity to
pander to monopoly interests. I, is not
surprising, tliereiore, that this journal
should denounce Judgu Cooley as a mo
nopolist because he has written a clear
legal argument demonstrating the re
sponsibility of the quasi public corpo
rations to State regulation in all mat
ters atl'ecting the public. Judge Cooley
is not a seutimaiist nor even an advo
cate. He is a learned and eminent ju
rist, and his mind is probably as free
from bias and as safe from - popular in
fluences as that of any man in the coun
try. He argued out the right of the
State to restrain the public corporations i
from the exaction of excessive and un-
reasonable profits at the expense of the
public, from legal premises which have
been established beyond all dispute tor
hundreds of years. The Tribune has
presented that argument in summaiy
and in detail, and it is not necessary
now to go over it again. But the organ
of the monopolists to which we refer
ignores the law thus early set forth,
and jumps at the conclusion that
J udge Cooley must be at least a ''po
litical Communist, as if tiia' meant
anything different from the usual ac
ceptation of the term, because he does
not, in the interest of the corporations,
distort and misrepresent the principles
of la which govern the relations be
tween the corporations and the people.
The organ of the monopolists tates
the extraordinary position that "There
is notmng in existence and owned by
the Slate whicr it gives away wneu it
charters a railway." Tins doctrine
does away completely with the inher
ent sovereignity of Government and the
established and uncontested right
known as eminent domain." If there
is i,o sovereignty pertaining to Govern
ment which enables it to protect the
people from imposition and abuses at
the hands of indivduals and corpora
tions whose rights, privileges, and pow
ers are acquired from the Government,
then the organization of societv in a
political entity is a superfluity and fail
ure. If the monopolists adhere to sucii
a theory as their organ puts forth, they
are the most formidable Communists
in the laud tor they assert thereby a
claim to the rignt to confiscate the
property of the people without inter iei
ence from any power, and they acknowl
edge no restraint short of popular up
lining and a revolution against their
supremacy. We think the successful
mouoplists themselves will be inclined
to disavow any vuch theory, for they
are intelligent enough to be aware that
its application would sooner or later
fan the flame of popular indignation
into a raging fire which would sweep
throughout the country with the force,'
impetuosity, and disaster of unrestrain
ed forest tire.
The State encourages the aggrega
tion of capital to provide improvement
and expedition in the means of com
munication and exchange among the
people. To this end it delegates to
corporations the exercise 01 rights
which oiiginally attached to govern
ment exclusively. The sovereign pow
er of eminent domain and the control
of certain highways are among the del
egated privileges. Bat it is madness
for aDy corporation exercising these
prerogatives by express provision of the
state to assume that on this account it
becomes an independent sovereignty.
and escapes all responsibility to gov
eminent and the people. If certain
corporations, grown fat upon the sub
stance of the people, and arrogant from
long indulgence, had become imbued
with bucu a notion, they were brought
to their eenses by the decisions of the
United States Supreme court in the so
called "Granger cases." Judge Cool
ey's argument 011 the "state regulation
of corporate profits" is a clearer des
criptioa of the evolution of law follow-
in e the progress of invention ana tne
j uses of capital, but the principle he lays
down and tbe logic of his conclusions
are the same as those of the Supreme
court decisions. It is preposterous to
maintain that tbe powers of govern
meat may be acquired by individuals
and combination -of -private -capital
aud thus used to oppress tbe people for
( whose benefit tbeee prrwerf were arc
ated originally. The principles of law
and society have not changed becaus
the old highroad has given way to the
railroad or the mailcoach to the tele
graph. The right of the government to
regulate the business of tho common
carrier is as well defined m law to biy
as it was a hundred ye irs j 'o, and that
is nrecisclv what Judge Cooley has
poiused out so clearly that "'he w!
runs may read."
A MASSACHUSETTS THAW
. Charles Francis Adams Jr, seems to
have a pretty fair idea of the issue in
Massachusetts when he says it is to
rescue the State "from the hands of the
political charlatans and wreckers into
which it was permitted last year parti
ally to fall. To insure this result, una'
nimity to the one needful thing.'
Preferring unanimity to the chance of
loading the '-rescuers," Mr. Adams steps
out ot the way, and intimates that
either Pierce or Robinson is the pioper
man to undertake the task.
