A ono horse preacher at "Washington
by tho name of Fred 1). Power, stood
in his pulpit on Sunday and uttered
venomous falsehoods for political ef
fect against such men as ox-Senator
Colliding and (ion. Grant. It is bad
enough for such lies to bo told in papers
like the Chicago Ti ibunt or tho Courier
Journal, but from tho pulpit better
and truer sentiments are gnnerally ex
pected. Tho Jivpitblicnn of .Jewell, Knasas,
says it hears a great deal of complaint
from farmers about tho ravages of
chinch bugs; that the "little pests have
destroyed the greater part of the spring
wheat and damaged the oats some."
"Tlie nourishment received have sharp
ened tlmir appetites, their num
bers l.ave been multiplied by millions,
and they aie moving in force on tho
vast corn fields." "It does seem
-.trango that farmers will persist in
sowing small grain, resulting inevitably
in loss to them as their late experience
again proves." Tho editor "ventures
tho statement that attempting to raise
small grain in this part of Kansas is a
grand mistake." He then advises a
short stop on tho aiii.ill giam business
and that attention be turned to such
crops as llax, castor beans, sorghum.

BROWNVILLE, NEBRASKA, THURSDAY, JULY 28, 1881.
Guiteau is a professed Christian and
has lectured under tho auspices of tho
Y. M. C. A. Guitoau is, or was. up to
tho time ho gave up hope of being ap
pointed to an ollleo.n fervent adminis
tration man, even going so far as to
tender by letter to tho president his
sympathy, and assuro him of his sup
port. Guiteau was a devoted member
of Plymouth church, and belonged to
ono of Ueecher's Biblo classes. Now
take your choice as to which profession
or society, or belief, or dogma, imbued
him with tho spirit of assassination.
The stalwart dodge will not answer
any longer, becauso ho was not a stal
wart, never was, never oven said he
was. Until it was proved to bo a Ho
that Guiteau declared himself a stal
wart, great weight was given to his
own testimony by tho half breed editors
and preachers, If that rule is as good
now as it was then, and there is no
reason why it should not bo, thoso gen
tlemen may llnd a true and tangible
text in his declaration that his concep
tion of tho idea to kill the president
was an inspiration from God. Guiteau
simpjy amplilled his faith in his re
ligion. Now who can doubt our prop
osition that it was revenge that prompt
ed him to slay tho president, and that
had ho received kind treatment at the
hands of the appointing power, instead
of snubbings and rebuffs; had his self
esteem been fed and flattered
instead of insulted, had his self alleged
inlluenco in electing Garfield boon re
cognized instoad of ignored, had his
proffered sympathy and support been
rewarded by an appointment, his re
vealed duty would not have boon to
kill the prosidentf 'Conklingllien would
probably have been his victim for sacri
fice for harmony in tho party.
A Maj. J. S. Carr, of North Carolina,
recently in Chicago, was interviewed
by an Inter Ocean reporter, regarding
tho feeling in tho South over tho at
tempt to assassinate the President.
Maj. Carr said:
While the majority of tho voters of
our State cast their ballots for Gen.
Hancock, wo cheerfully accepted the
will of the majority of the country,
and after the inauguration of (ion.
Garfield felt that he was our President
as much as of any other section, and
wo loved and honored him as such, as
well as for his personal merits; and
when thisblow was struck it was aimed
at every Southern heart. No part of the
country responded more quickly with
tender sympathy, none offored more
earnest prayer for his recovery than
I ho South. Nothing since tho war has
drawn the hearts of Noith and South
more closely together and raised the
veil that has been so closoly held by
designing politicians, thus revealing to
all sections that tho hearts of the peo
ple aro united in love for our country.
On this occasion I ant proud to say the
South is "solid" in her loving sympathy
and earnest regret.

Tho Cincinnati Enquirer makes tho
following homo thrust at the Chicago
Tribune: "It is getting difllcult to

and an assassin at the same time.
