Three Reno Brothers were charged
with robbing the express in Indiana,
socio tinio since. They were tracked
to Canada and arrested, and taken to
Indiana under the ex-tradition treaty,
and lodged in Jail for trial. While
thro, a number of men disguised,
furccd the jail open, took them out
and hung them. The Canadian au
thorities are quite Indignant over the
matter, and say if such things are per
mitted by the Government, ex-tradition
must cease, as they cannot send
men over the border to be torn to
pieces by a mob, no matter what has
been their crime.
. The contest for U. 8. Senator to suc

seems to be between Carl Schura and
Congressman B. F. Loan, for the Dis

is for Schurz. We would be glad to
see the Hon. B. F. Loan elected, as
we consider him true, honest, and the
right man for the place. Until we ob

The Stale of Nebraska holds in her
own right, 452,000 acres of the best
lands of the State, donated to her by
the General Government for general
' improvements. Railroad companies
have been and are being organized for
.the purpose of building roads, com
mencing at certain named points, and
ending at some very undefined and
imaginary points, wholly beyond
.tie comprehension of the Incorpora
tors themselves. These various com
panics will ask for a portion of these
lunra Ia itlrl in liullrfinir thrdr rrvula
Consequently much has been and is
ite-lnz written and said as to the best
xnethod of disposing of these lands.
Two question hare attainea some
-yromiuence f n this tUyctrssion : Ought
.these lauds to bo held by the State for
pre-emption by actual setters at a
nominal figure, and tho proceeds. If
any, xs applied to the building of rail
roads? or, shall the State offer these
land directly to the various railroad
companies under safe conditious and
"restrictions'. , ' '
Now It seems, from our point of
-rlcw; that to offer them to actual
settle rs for pre-emption, at rates
Vnpwlif :tmtnfnT 'first reouire
the. establishment of a State Land
OrSce, with a Register, Receiver and
. clerks, with large salaries and perqui
sites; and the State might in the end
-b fortunate If no large sums from the
Oeneral fund were called for to meet
the annual deficit of the Land Office.
This would simply defeat the object
of. the donation, and Lr the end the
Republican party would be called upou
to answer the charge of squandering
.this magnificent fund, which, these
lands represent to no purposa..
In dinoslnsr of the School Unlvco
f ity and other State Lands, the poliry
bas been established to prohibit sales
under $7 per acre, and sell to any per
son, who has the cash and deposition
jtopay more than that. If this policy is
good, continue it ; and if it is right

will bring, and to keep them when
they will not bring a certain pre
scribed Cguxo, the policy is Just as
food in the hands of companies or in
'viduals. For this reason we are iu
.ciined to favor the donation of the
lands directly to- the railroad compa-
bice, upon their building and rnnnlng
, within a given time.
While we would be g&d to see all

For the Advertiser.
carlstnaa Tree and the
Christmas is cominjr, and among
the many other J;y3 will be the Sab
bath School Christmas Tree; even
now, dainty fingers are busily em
ployed with fine fabrics and rich silks,
fashioning beautiful little ornaments
and costly garments, so make the
hearts of the little Sabbath School
scholars very happy this is beautiful
and the coming scene a merry one;
yet with all its beauty and happiness,
I doubt me much If the sweet promp
tings of charity, or the tender love of
mercy has much tctdo with it. There
Is something wrong here even lathe
Sabbath School. To Illustrate I will
briefly tell a story :
Not many years have paesed since I
visited a Sabbath School Christmas
Tree.How beautiful It locked in the soft
glow of the lamp-light, hung with its
costly presents and pretty ornaments.
What a fair sight the sweet faces of
the happy children I 01 it was love
ly the world seemed brighter, and for
a while I was as happy as the children.
A lady stood by the tree, distributing
the gifts ; In fact, the seemed a pcrfoct
angel. One by one, the gifts were
given, and I noticed that the costliest
and jhusl were given to those whose
dress and manner betokened them as
belonging to tho wealthier vkiss.
There were large wax dolls, China tea
sets, guns, drums and many beautiful
things I cannot enumerate. The par
entsofsome of these children were also
amply provided for, but sitting back
a little from the blaze of the lamp
iignt, ana outside or tnc happy trcna
of merry faces, I noticed a little boy,
his face was pale and his cheeks thin,
and his garments had the appearance
of being fashioned of cast olT clothes
his shoes were thin and worn in holes
he had no mittens, he looked for
ward with eager wistful eyes, yet sat
back sly and apart from the rest.
Alas I the brand of overty was writ
ten in every gesture; his gaze was
hopeful and eager, for was he not a
scholar? and had he not a right to
expect something in common with
others, albeit their limbs were more
dalntly attired? At last his name was
ealled; he went up with a trembling
step and bashful air to receive his pres
ent ; and reader, what do you suppose
this Christmas Tree gave to this poor,
ueedy, expectant boy ; a good warm
Jacket ; a new cap ; a pair of mittens ?
No, none of these, but a jumping jack !
a miserable, worthies toy. I looked
at his face, and it had lost the eager,
hopeful look; and instead, the .fair
eyes were noist with tears. Oh!
what a disappointment. He ' had
learned a severe lesson, and that in
the Sabbath School on Christmas eve.
No one noticed him, or if they did, i
they thought "it was only little John
Jenkins," whose parent were so very
poor! I turned away sadly my hap
piness was gone. I saw those finely
dressed boys and girls happy in the
poseession of their beautiful gifts, but
felt that the tender hand of charity
was not am&ng those costly presents.
How would this little boys heart have
swelled with pleasure, if, instead of
that contemptable toy, this lady had
handed him a pair of new boots, why,
he could have blessed her for all time
to come; it would have made his
heart glad for weeks, months, aye,
years, for the memory of that Christ
mas eve, and its useful presents would
have accompanied him with its pleas
urable feelings through manhood and
old age. But as it was, he felt the
wrong. His young heart was dwarfed
by iujustico and neglect. Ohl ye
whose every need is grati fled forget
not the poor! and remember that
their joys are few and their wants
many. Yet, do not think that I would
rob the Christinas Tree of its costly
presents inako it beautiful with all
that is essential to the pleasure of the
children ; but forget not to bestow
some useful and comfortable present
as some poor child whose well-worn,
ragged or faded garments bespeak
his need, and bears about him the
brand of poverty. Are thore not in
your own beloved Sabbath School,
come boys or girls who would hail
with delight, a new pair of boots, a
jacket, a warm cloak, dress, hood or a
pair of sucks? Costly gifts, bestowed
in the right direction and in the prop
er manner, are very good, for even the
Master did not rebuke the woman,
who, in the fulness of her heart, poured
the alabaster box of ointment on his
head, for when the disciples would
have rebuked her by 6aying, 44 Why
this great waste ? ye might have sold
this and gave the money to the poor !"
lie replied. "Why trouble ye trie wo
man, the poor ye have always with
you, but me ye have not always."
Therefore, while you load the Chris-
mas Tree with Its beautiful presents,
forget not to give out of your generous
store, some useful present to gome in
vour midst who may need the merest
comforts. ' ;
I k no this little' sketch will fall
under the notice of many a lady, who,
year after year has in her bountiful
generosity, helped decorate tbe Christ
mas. Tree. To such 1 would say,
make it your especial busiue-a to find
some little wanderer from the fold,
who has istayed away because hU
shoes were thin, or his coat was old.
Provide them with such articles as
they may need, and you will be amply
repaid, by the happy satisfaction of
uot only having bestowed a present,
but of having performed a deed of
If. In one sfusfd littlo instance some
heart is influenced by this email
sketch, then I shall not have written
it In vain. Josephine.
The committee appointed to investi
gate the alleged bribery in the Alaska
purchase, have taken the testimony
of Treasurer Spinner, w ho says that a
gold draft of $7,200,003, payable to the
order Itlggs, Banker, was paid, and
so far as he knows, all went into the
hands of Rlggs. Ittggs testifies that
the money was paid out as follows:
$25,000 wu paid to R. J. Walkerr and
the entire-remainder to Mr. DeStock

order ta the Baring Bros. R. J, Wal

Mr, Editor r As there Is fais pros
pect that Nemaha county will soon
have Bailroad coin niuin cat. oir with
the outside world, it is r. roper that the ,
Ieople should know whr.t is necessary i
for them to da. in order to secure this
il is geaeraiy required. that the peo-
pie along the line of a railroad should
subscribe in their corporate and indi
vidual character, a sufficient amount
to grade an tie the road. Let us see
if Nemaha county can afford to do
tftafc much for a road running along
tlue wes-t bank of the Missouri river, to
connect us with St. Louis and with
This county is eighteen miles from
north to south, and where the road
would enter it at St. Deroin, is nine
mile9 east where it would leave on the
north side, but as the road would run
diagonally across the county, the dis
tanee would be about twenty-five
The most of the distance it would be
built on the bottom land, but there
are four places where it would run
along hill-6ides. One above St. De
roin, another below the mouth of the
Little Nemaha, tho third, immediate
ly above Brownville, and the fourth,
below Teru. These places will av
crage about one and a half miles each,
or six miles in all. That is six miles
of hill-side grading, and nineteen
miles of bottom grading.
Suppose that the six miles of bill
side grading would average twelve
thousand dollars per mile, aad the
bottom land would average one thou
sand dollars per mile. This would

There would be but one bridge re

Now let us recapitulate.
Total f 138,500
I have no doubt but that $150,000
will prepare tne road lor tne iron, ana
surely that amount of stock should be
taken by the people of any county
along the road.
This county has property to the
value of over two millions of dollars
now, and should the road be built
next year, it will have over four mil
lions of dollars worth of property, by
the time the road is finished.
The road itself will be valued on the
Assessor's books, at least three hun
dred thousand dollars, and the extra
wealth that will be brought into the
county, together with the tax collec
ted from the road, will more than pay
the increased tax to collected.
This $lo0,000, together with many
other thousands of dollars, will all be
expended in this county, giving em
ployment to many men, and then
when the road is finished, the compa
ny will keep a host of men employed
in the various departments of labor,
necessary to carry on the business of
the road, and to keep it in repair.
Fourteen months ago I was in Oma
ha, and I want to show the difference
in price of a few farm products at that
time, and 1 suppose, the difference is
about the same yet.

Nearly every thing else was in pro
portion, and had we have had railroad
commnnications at that time, the far
mers of this county would have re
ceived many thousands of dollars more
than they did receive.
The farmers of this county have a
surplus of farm products for sale, 6ay,
to the amount of four hundred thou
sand dollars. Now, if a railroad adds
only five per cent, to the value there
of, it amounts to twenty thousand
dollars, whicli is more than the far
mers of this county pay to the tax
collector. ; , . ? W.V. P.

Messrs., ,xsye, Collins and Rice, of
Pawnee, were in this city last Monday
night. They left at our office two
large specimens of stone coal taken
from the coal bed near Pawnee City.
The coal looks more like the solid
Pennsylvania stone coal than any we
have ever seen from western mines.
They say such coal is sold at the place
where taken out at $o per tun. This
opens up a new era for Pawnee county.
Her prairies are fertile and well wa
tered. The hedge will supply herl
fences, and the coal is abundant for
fuel, and pine lumber can be procured
in sufficient quantities for building
purposes. These combined, warrant
us ia saying that Pawnee county is
second to none m the bt&tc for agri
cultural purposes. .
From the Xeuv we learn that the
valuation of Nebraska City, Real and
Personal, for the year 1868, amounts
to $1,005,288, and that the city taxes
levied thereon," amounts to $4Q,3G4.
That $11,708 of this is for school pur
poses. We shall be surprised if De
mocracy does uot dwindle away and
dieout under this annual expenditure
ior scnooi purposes, it j uuit louoiy cui
ployed in giving thorough Instruction
to Use-Tiling generation.
