and we commented on the case in
that Hpirit and in no other. Per
haps the XewH can explain why its
trusted "attache" was not in court
to deny the testimony of his father,
and to clear hid akirts from the
charges made against him? Here
was a very excellent opportunity to
make a denial, and a much more
appropriate place than the columns
of the News, when we consider that
Milton D. Polk was the first defend
ant in the case and within a few
yards of the court room when the
case was in progress of trial. We
have more evidence than was given
on that trial, Mr. Burton, and we
hereby notify you that our com
ments were tame when compared
with the facts in the case.

In Thursday evening's iaeue THE HER
ALD contatned an item of district court
news which apparently was written for
no other purpot'-e than to asperse and
blacken the character of an attache of the
News office, and to reflect disadvantage
ously upon this paper. The falsity and
alanderousness of the item wilt not be
dwelt upon in this article, but we wish to
call attention to the dispicable methods
employed by certain money-iufluenced
politicians whose anxiety to pose as party
leaders arises solely from the fact of
there beina; "money in it." The Item re
ferred to described the gentleman men
tioned as the editor of the Evening News,
which, in a very covert way, was an attack
upon that paper. The name of the editor of
the News is printed at the top of the edi
torial page, and that fact is well known to
the writer of the item, who merely gave
that title to the person maligned in order
to cover his real intention. Mr. M. D. Polk
was attacked in that contemptible man
ner, and the reflection cast upon the News
for the sole reason of this paper's wonder
ful popularity, and the fact of nearly all of
THE HEKALD'S subscribers having quit
that paper, which fact appears to have
aroused the enmity of a few unprincipled
politicians who try to bolster up the rap
idly sinking HERALD to retain a tool for
their own personal ends. The News has
the support of the citizens, which it is con
fident of its ability to retain, and will not
sink so low as to employ such under
handed methods to help its business.
Mr. Burton of the News, either did
not write the foregoing or else he
listened to the representations of
his "attache" and blindly swallowed
a very weak story. The comment
of The Herald on the case of
O'Dotiohoe vs. Milton D Polk and
his father, was in our opinion fully
w..iuted by the facts in the case
;. .uoy were retailed by the elder
The News is supposed, to
I?.....- a tine scent for items, as a
u.-iial iJing, but its editor was not
n court when the case was called,
ndeed the News, was conspicuous
for its absence, both in the person
of its editor and its trusted "at
tache," who was the first and princi
pal defendant in the case which at
tracted so much attention from the
public. The Herald wants its
neighbor to understand that it is
responsible for that item of news.
It was published as a legitimate
item of news without conspiracy
or consultation with politicians or
outsiders and without thought of
doing our neighbor harm or break
ing down the News, as that paper
terms it. We are not in that busi
ness, although we have heard that
the mission of the News, since its
attache" took charged its colums,
was to "swamp ihe xijskah ana,
however that may be, we want Mr.
Burton to understand that we do
not run a newspaper for that pur
pose we are publishing a paper
because that is our business and
trade; it is our profession; we have
been brought up to it and do
not know how to do anything else;
we are not publishing a newspaper
for fame or health, like our neigh
bor; neither are we bothering our
selves over politicians and their in
trigues; nor have we hired a poli
tician to edit our paper. Now as to
the item which seems to annoy our
neighbor, does the News doubt Mr.
John F. Polk's evidence given to the
court and public under the solem
nity of an oath? Or does it prefer
the word of its "attache," which has
proved so disastrous to the father?
If it does, of course that settles it
with that paper, but we want to 833-,
right here, that we stand ready to
satisfy anybody else of sound mind
that the old father's word is bettei
than the son's, and we are prepared
to prove it. It won't do to charge it
to politicians, nor say the old
gentleman is mistaken 011 the wit
ness stand. This was a civil action
right here in court, in the city of
Plattsmouth, and in the presence of
our citizens, and if a newspaper
hasn't the right to comment on the
fact of that trial THE HERALD
wants to know it. Listening to
that testimony we, like the balance
of the spectators, felt justly indig
nant that such wrongs should go
unpunished in this community,
Hete are two amusing views of the
Rhode Island election. The New
York Sun says:
To the mugwump fanatics, Mr
Cleveland's imaginary popularity
about the time of his accidental
election in 1884, grew like Jack's
bean-stalk steadily throughout his
four years of mugwump adminis
tration. Then in 1888 he was de
feated with a reversed or dimin
ished democratic majority in every
The same frantic argument for
the stuffed prophet's fictitious status
has been put to the test of the fact
again in the city o Providence,
where this ponderous and unac
countable demagogue went to plead
his own case for the democratic
nomination, under the pretense that
it was the "people's cause." The re
sult is that the democratic majority
of 2,000 in Providence sank almost
to 200. This, too, was after a be
wideringly vociferous reception a
few days before to the visiting

CAPTAIN YOCUM of Hastings was
sentenced Friday to the peniten
tiary for one year, the lightest sen-
nce that the court could impose
d last Saturday, the next day
after the sentence had been pro
nounced, Adjutant General Vifquain
carried to Hastings a pardon for
Mr. Yocum from Governor Boyd.
There will be but one verdict on
this action of the governor and that
will be a verdict of approval.
Nothing but the letter of the law
convicted Captain Yocum. The
jury, the judge, the spectators at
the trial and the people over the
state all felt that equity demanded
that Captain Yocum, who defended
his home and family from the lies
of a traducer, ought to be justified
in his act and told to go hence a
free man. But the law in its strict
letter has been complied with and
the governor has exercised his
right under the law and given
justice to a man who stands,
though convicted under the law,
justified in all that he has done to
protect his home and his fireside.
The United States has paid Italy
$25,000 for the killing of the Mafia
men at New Orleans and friendly
relations are once more established
with that country. We won't say
but they are worth that dead, but
