Mr. Robertson is notoriously tho
agent and advocato of monopolies, and
represents a Democratic district in tho
Xow York Legislature by tho grace of
the Now York Central Railroad. Ex
The allegations in the abovo are in
controvertible facts. And that's tho
kind of a man that Garfield and Blaine
has put forward as their instrument to
crush such veterans as'' Itoscoe Conk
ling. Ilalstcad, of tho Cincinnati Commer
cial, wants to bo Minister to Berlin;
hence his warm support of tho admin
istration, and unfair criticisms of Conk
ling and Piatt. AVo cannot find fault
with those who honestly support tho
President, but the many who, like Hal
stead, aro rolling in tho dirt at the foot
of the President simply because ho has
patronage and offices to give, aro tho
most detestablo creatures that play a
part in tho affairs of tho country.
What kind of wisdom is that which
drives a man liko Roscoo Conkling
from tho Republican ranks of the
Senate to mako room in tho Xew York
Custom House for a third-rato politi
cian whose nana lias neon as often
raised to strike as to support tho party
which rewards him at such a cost, we
leavo otherB to say. Perhaps ho is
worth tho price paid. At any rate,
tho President, and the truly great men
who have counseled him, aro freo
from the annoyanco of the Xow York
Senators, aud can now go on managing
affairs to suit themselves. AVo lose
Conkling and Piatt, but wo shall have
Robertson. Thank heaven for that!
President Garfield showed his hon
esty of purposo by returning to tho
senate tho nomination of Conkling's
friends, which woro withdrawn prior
to Robertson's confirmation. Z;jco7n
Yes, and had ho further adhorcd
firmly to his honesty of purpose when
ho agreed with tho Senators upon an
amicable settlement of tho Xow York
question, instead of pormilting Mr.
Blaine to dictato to and forco him to

deserve praiso for genuine oxecutivo

norvo to execute thoso purposes is another.
BROWNVILLE, NEBRASKA, THURSDAY,
. ... .... i
in us imperial ideas ot uuii-do.ing,
the Brownvillo Advertiser is so blind
in its prejudice for tho autocratic Conk
ling side that it cannot see the over
bearing spirit which its political deity
manifestsd towards coercing the ad
minist ration to do hisbhWng.Uewnrd
AVc may not sco it all, but wo seo
enough j and wc can soo something
olso besides tho hand that carries
the gifts. AVo seo a promise
made to Mr. Conkling, Mr. Piatt,
Air. Arthur, Air. James, and wo
seo that promiso broken. Wo
an agreement matlo botweon
President nnd llopublicun
Senators that would havo set
tled harmoniously tho Xow York
quarrel, and saved the Republican par
ty. And again wo seo that agreement
broken. Wo can seo violations of
courtesy, broken promises, vacillation,
bad faith and insult. "We can seo that
when the President consented to treat
with the "autocratic," ho should havo
sacredly maintained his integrity, and
lived up to his agaecments and prom
ises. And wo can seo that when the
fight was forced upon tho Xcw York
Senators, that they had tho right to
chooso their own way of managing
thoirsido of tho same. AVo can sco
that thero was no cause for this om
broglio; no causo or call for a change
in tho Xow York collectorship; that
thero was no vacancy, Gen. Merritt's
term not expiring for two years yet;
that thero were no charges against him ;
that ho was a Republican and an effi
cient oMcor; that tho change was made
against tho prayers of the leading poli
ticians and business men of Xow York,
and not in tho interest of reform nor
in the interest of party, but in tho in
terest of a, faction of a party as against
tho interest of another faction of tho
name party unprecedented and inex
cusable, if not unpardonable. AVo sco
all these things and much more. That
tho President, having the very Hfo of
tho party in his hands,, should havo
avoided a qurrol4rutiJVsr thnu jforco
ono unnecessarily that threatens tho
very oxistonco of the party. AVo seo
therefore, from these prominent facts,
that if tho party sustains injury, if
Xow York is handed over to tho Dem
ocrats, it will bo through the ili-advised
change in the Xew York collectorship
at a timo when there was no necessity
for making any change.

Tho Act for tho Euforcoinout of tho Con
stitutional Amontlniont is Pronounood
Lkavicnwouth, May 17. Tn a case
tried hero to-day, in which a druggist
was charged with selling bay rum,
cologne and a patent bitters, tho In
formation was quashed. Judge
Crozior, in sustaining tho motion to
quash, delivered quito an elaborato
opinion, the main points of which aro
as ioiiows: inai under llio amend
ment the const itutioucannnot prohibit,
but only regulate, tho sale of intoxicat
ing liquors lor mechanical, medicinal
and scientific purposes; but that in at
tempting to dolluu tho meaning of in
toxicating liquors, ho says that any
liquor or mixturo thereof that will pro
duco intoxication shall bo considered
intoxicating liquor in tho meaning of
the act, and its salo shalbbo prohibited,
and honeo tho allegation that tho
articles sold woro intoxicating liquors
in tho meaning of tho law must bo
taken as true. Thoroforo tho court
held that inasmuch as tho law under
took to prohibit tho salo of articles
which under tho amendment it could
only regulate, it was unconstitutional,
and that tho act was further in con
travention of tho constitution becausu
it undortook to confer judiciary powers
upon tho probate court. Tho gist of
tho decision is that such articles as
eologno and tinctures aro prohibited by
tho law, but that tho law itself is un

Tho Danger at tho Door. '
the telegraph yesterday announced
that Mr. Vlllard, of tho Oregon trans-' '
portation pool, which has captured tho '
Northern Pacific Railway, has, in com
pany with Horaco White, formerly of
tho Chicago Tribune, bought tho New
York linning Post, which it is pro
posed lo placo under the editorship of
Carl Schurz. If this shall bo accom
plished it will give tho control of three
of tho great newspapers of New York',
all members of tho Associated Press, lo
men who aro interested solely in in
creasing and consolidating tho power
of thogreatcorporations of the country.
TlwTribtine and World aro already
controlled by Jay Gould ; reinforced by
the Post, whoso mission of supporting
and defending monopolies will bo tho
s.tmo as theirs, and n powerful news
paper triumvirate is established whoso
batteries will bo turned on tho people
without cessation. Thero never was
cause for such alarm or such a demand
for a general awakening of tho people
to the danger that threatens them from
grasping corporations as now.
A pamphlet recently issued and ad
dressed to bankers and Investors, and
others interested In tho securities of
tho Union Pacific Company, as well as
railroads directly and indirectly under
the control of Its leading officers, re
veals somo startling facts that will bo
of interest to the public at large. Quietly
but certainly the manipulations of Jay
Gould and his associates havo gone on
until they control nearly all tho great
roads of tho country. Notice how tho
names of two or throo gentlemen figure
in the list of directors: Take first tho
Union Pacific, and among its officers
wo find Sydney Dillon, Russoll Sage,
and Jay Gould. Tho Missouri, Kansas,
and Texas, which has just placed bondB
to tho amount of $45,000,000 on tho
markot, has among its directors Jay
Gould, Russell Sago and Sydney Dillon.
Tho central branch of tho Union Pacific
which has just placed 80,000,000 In
bonds on the market, has for Its princi
pal officers Sydne. Dillon, Jay Gould,
and RiiHsell Sage.
Tho AVabash St. Louis and Pacific
exhibits tho names of Sydnoy Dillon,
Jay Gould and Russell Sage. Tho Del
aware, Lackawanna and AVcstorn has

Sydnoy Dillon. Hannibal and St.
Joseph, Jay Gould and Russell Sage.
'Central Railroad of Now Jersoy, Syd
ney Dillon and Jay Gould. St. Louis,
Iron Mountain and Southern railroad,
Jay Gould, Russell Sago, Sydnoy Dillon.
Jay Gould has just secured control of
tho International and Great Northern
Railroad, and his favorito associates
will no doubt soon figure as directors.
In April last Jay Gould gained control
and succeeded to the presidency of tho
Texas Pacific Railway, and it is under
stood that he and his associates control
the St. Joseph and AVestern, running
from St. Joseph to Grand Island, Neb.,
a distance of 28(1 miles. Theso aro
only a few of the roads in which Mr.
Gould aud his associates aro largely in
terested. How many others are really
controlled by them tho public may not
know until some lino morning when
the former feel disposed to put on tho
screws, freeze out tho minority stock
holders, or show the people that having
tho power to regulate rates thoy pro
pose to ruin a town hero and there,
squeeze the farmers of tho West out of
their hard earnings, or build up ono
city at tho expense of another.
Talk about tho patronage of tho Pres
ident! AVhy, tho word of Jay Gould
can turn a hundred thousand men into
the street, or give employment to a
hundred thousand others any day. The
vast lines of telegraph aro owned by
him and thoso in league with him.
Every newspaper in Chicago pays toll
and tribute to thorn. Gould's order
would be sufficient to disturb their news
facilities, and damage them almost
Xo legislature, no organization or
body of men having tho enactment of
laws in its keeping is safo from tho in
fluence of these ambitious and far-seeing
speculators. They laugh at legis
lators, for they are confident of their
ability to control them. The only pow
er they respect is that held by tho peo
ple, which, when arousul, makes or re
makes presidents, cabinets, congresses,
and even railway kings. But oven
tins power may bo held m abeyance
too long, and nrouso only to find its
AVIien Mr. Garfield took hold in
March tho Republican party was a
complete bird. Now wo hear only of
the "wings." It is tho duty of all good
Republicans to stick to tho bird and
havo nothing to do with tho wings.
