Our government can look for trouble
from Spain's Roman Catholic sympa'

ters than those now being attacked
We expect the next thing these Intern
al enemies will assail will be the armor
plate works, the gun factories and the
coal mines, followed by the destruction
of the lighting plants of the large
cities, during which will occur a reign
of terror. Wise Protestants will buy

the arsenal at New Orleans was broken

up until the president can find the right
man to fill the position. Then the ven
erable John Sherman, tht Secretary of
State, stepped down and his assistant,
Mr. Day, was appointed to his place.
Mr. Gage is still a member of the cabi
net and will be until he succeeds in
raising the necessary funds to carry on
the war. then, unless he catches the
war spirit, he may resign.
During the time those misleading
statements were being sent out John
Ireland was in Washington. Whether
they emanated from htm or not we do
not know, but as he was a peace at any
price advocate, and as he knew the av
erage Republican, like the average
Democrat, would endorte any policy
their leaders might choose to adopt, he
may have inspired many of those dis
patches for the purpose of securing the
least one of their friend for tbe bal
ance of this year. It only costs One (tl)
Dollar, and the nation should be awak
ened to the real and awlful danger that
Is almost upon us.
There is a move in certain quarters
to stir up discord among the state mi
litiamen. The plea is put for ward that
if they cannot enlist as a company they
should not enlist at all. This looks to
us like a pretty flimsy excuse. It may
serve to keep the Hibernian Rifles at
home in the several states, but that is
about as far as it will reach, for loyal
men in the ranks will not question the
wisdom of the governor, or make the
mistake of supposing that be would
divide lcc&l companies and jump inex
perienced men over the heads of their
officers. The average governor Is a
man of sense, whether we agree with
blm politically or not, and we think he
can be trusted to treat his soldiers
with the utmost justice. This is es
pecially true of the governor of Nebraska.
Our friend John Raid, the Sixteenth

Dr. Fisher of the Yale university,
says, in his church history; The teach
ing of the Spaniard, Mariana, one of
their Jesuit writers, that regicide waa
lawful, was believed to have lead to tho
murder of Henry IV of France. Tbe
assassination of his predecessor, Herry
III as well as William of Orange, was
traced by manv to the p isonous doc

The governor of Nebraska Is reported
to have said that he had received more
than one hundred applications for com
missions to organize a company. We
suggest that the governor call the ap
plicants all to Lincoln, have them
mustered into service in two companies
and let them choose their officers by
lot. Each man, after he signs the
muster roll, to draw an envelope con
taining a card designating his rank
We can't expect to get permission to
furnish two hundred companies in ad
dition to the state militia, and every
man who offered to get up a company
did it, no doubt, for the pure and un
selfish motive of serving his country
and not for tbe salary attached to a
captaincy. What say you, Governor?
