The report of the investigation of
the murder of Mathews, in Copiah Co ,
Mississippi, soon to be published, and,
following closely upon it, the trial and
acquittal of Wheeler, the niurdeer, are
disturbing the democratic leaders in
Washington. Thousands of copies of
the report of the investigation are be
ing printed for distribution, and the
more the facts are considered the more
damaging does the case appear against
the Mississippi democracy. It is no
wonder that the southern senators aro
non-plussed as to means to counteract
the effect that a knowledge of the facts
must produce upon public opinion.
The truth of the matter is, there is
6imply no defense that can b9 made.
The verdict of the jury that tried
Wheeler is as great an offense against
society and government, and perhaps a
more significant event, than even the
cold-blooded murder of Mathews. The
prompt acquittal places on record tho
evidence of the fact, of which there was
no chau& for doubt before, that public
seutimeut in Copiah county, and, pre
sumably, ia a large portion of the stale
of Mississippi, sanctions the mu;Ier of
ui(.i who vote anything but the demo
cr.ilic ticket. There is absolutely no
escape from this conclusion. The
facts before the jury establish beyond
peradventurc that Wheeler murdered
Mathews solely because he dared to op
pose the democratic party. Mathews
was a substantal, honest business man,
a public spirited citizen, a generous
friend and a good neighbor.
Shortly before killing Mathews,
Wheeler himself said he "would rather
vote for Mathews thau for any man
Who was running for office." Indeed,
Mathews had often belrieided Wheeler
as Wheeler acknowledged. But Math
ews was opposing the democratic party
of Copiah county. The democrats of
the county organized into armed bands
that scoured tho county, mobbing and
in Eome cases murdering negro voters.
Mathews was apprised of the danger
time and again, and the very day be
fore the election asked the sheriff for
protection. Although the sheriff of
fered to make him a deputy, to he could
arrest those who were threatening him
with violence, he declined, askiDg only
the protection due to any citizen.
Some hours later on the same day, a
band ot armed democrats met near
Mathews' house and sent him notice in
writing, requiring him not to leave his
place on election day. To the man
who served the notice, Mathews said:
"Now, John, you have got it in your
power to murder me, I admit. But I
am going to vote tomorrow unless you
do kill me." And on the next day as
he stepped to the polls in Ilazelhurst
with his ticket not a democratic ticket
in his Lad, Wheeler came up behind
him and slot him dead. That night
the democrats of Ilazelhurst held a
rousing ratification meeting, with mar
tial musi c and an enthusiastic proces
sion, and Wheeler was shortly after
elected city marshal. Thfs is what the
red-handed murderer said : .
"I killed Print Mathews. I told him
no$ to vote, and he voted, and I killed
him. It was not me that killed him; it
was the party. If I had not been a
democrat I would not have killed him.
It was not me, but the democratic
party; and now, if the party is a mind
to throw me off, damn such a party."
- It was only after months, when it be
came evident that the complicity of the
Mississippi democracy in the Mathews
murder would injure the democratic
party, that Wheeler was arrested and
the farce of a trial played, The prompt
verdict of aot guilty was a foregone
conclusion. The outspoken testimony
of dozens of democrats before the sen -ate
investigatfng committee proved
what, indeed, has not been denied, that
the murder was approved by the local
democracy. No intelligent person
north or south, so much as dreamed
that Wheeler would bo punished, al
thoug it was hardly expected he would
be vindicated with such unanimity and
The senate committee on public lands
decided to report the bill3 forfeiting
the land graut3 opposite the uncom
pleted portions of the Northern Pacific
main and branch lines and the Atlantic
& Pacific railroads. Senator Plumb,
chairman of the committee, says it is
impossible to calculate the number
of acres involved, as in both cases some
land was taken up before the charter
was granted, and in the case of the At
lantic and Ine Pacific the road was not
constructed in the line contemplated.
Nominally, the senator thinks the foi-
leituref the Northern Pacific will
amount to 13,000.000 acres. Senator
Slater, who is the author of the bill
providing for the forfeiture of the land
grants of the Northern Pacific railroad
says the actual number of acres forfeit
ed along the line will be a.bout 7,000,
000, which is 30,000,000 acres less than
proposed by the house comniittt e on
public lands, Slater's bill further pro
vides that the lien lands hereafter se
lected, if accepted by bona tide settlers,
shall be soi l for$1.2." per acre for 1G0
The Auburn Republican publishes
a quarter of a column of epigrams
from the writings ot great men, among
whom wo note Tom Paine. Edmund
Burke, llobert Cooper, Cicero, and
others, together with a verse from the
Bible. At the head of the list is an
epigrammatic chunk of solid wisdom
credited to a greater than any of these,
Church Howe, which reads; "All par
ties become corrupt in the course of
time. The republican pariy was once
pure." The liuie, the place, and the
circumstances of this profound remark
by the Sage of Nemaha is not known
to this deponent. It may have bcu at
the time he was carrying republican
primaries a couple of years ago by the
aid of the railroad dump and the grav
el train. Or it may be that he collid
ers hunielf the republican party. If
this is it Wrt we will agree with him
that he the republican party was
once pure. Beatrice Express.

"Yes," she said, ''our children are

before the little ones came to widen the
circle. Life is something like a spiral

"That is a pretty illustration," re
marked her friend, musingly, gazing
into the glowing coals which radiated
a pleasant heat from the many-windowed
stove. "You know we cannot
stop toiling up the hill, though."
"Surely we cannot, and for myself I
don't find fault with that necessity pro
vided the advance in life is not attend
ed with calamity or suffering, for 1
have had my share of that. Not long
since my health utterly broke down.
My system was full of malaria. My
digestion became thoroughly disorder
ed and my nerves were in a wretched
state. I was languid, ate little and
that without enjovine it, and had no
fctrength or ambition to perform even
my light household duties. Medical
treatment failed to reach the seat of
the trouble. The disease, which seem
eu to be weakness of the vital organs,
progressed till I had several attacks
which my physicians prououueed to be
acute congestion of the 6tomach. The
last of these was a desperate struggle
and I was given up to die. As the en
sis had partially passed, my husband
heard of the merits of Parker's Tonic as
an invigorant in just such cases as
mine I took it and felt its good effect
at once. It appeared to pervade my
body as though the blessing of a new
life had come to me. Taking no other
medicine I continued to improve, and
am now in better health than I have
been for a long time."
