The Toy Pistol Again.
Galesburg, 111., July 20 Another one
of those sad cases resulting from tho use
of Ii rearms culminated this morning in
tho death of Jinunie McFarlaud, sou

prominent citizens. Tho bov was slichtl v

Tho olllcials at tho bureau of sta
tistics state that thoy have never before
experienced suich a call for figures and
statements of various kinds with ro
forenco to the tariff, as within the last
fow days from mombors of tho house
and sepato. This was evidently caused
by the anticipation of a long debate on
tho "little revenue bil!,"which tho Dom
cratlc senators declared must tako placo
boforo they would allow a vote.
An exchange trembles with appolion
sion since it has boon ascertained by a
Gorman chemist that "first rate brandy"
can bo made from sawdust. "Wo aw
friends," it says, "of the temperance
movement, and want It to succeed, but
what chance will it have whm a man
can tako a rip saw nnd go out and got
drunk on a fonco rail."
Whon tho "delinquent" belayed Sec
rotary Alexander, who served him as
a friend, and fillod in tho blank spaco

Schwonk, who had served him ,h a
friend, ho but lived up to his wol
known motto, which is. "I don't care a
damn who sinks so I swim."

Ono of tho moanest, nnd smallest,

Contingent Congressman Majors and'
Secrotary of Stato Alexander havo got
themselves Into a somewhat uncom
fortablo position over census certificate,
which was furnished by Alexander to
substantiate Majors' claim to a eat in
congress. It appears that Alexander
loft blank the date of tho census', and
whon tho certlrlcato appeared before
tho committee, tho dato was filled out,
ahdWlug tho census to havo been taken
in 1872, When as as a matter of fact
it was taken In 1874. Tho editor of
tho Omaha Republican, who assumes
to know a good deal of tho mattor, says
that Aloxander left tho dato blank be
cailsd he did not know whether there
was a consus of tho state takon in
1872 or not, and belloved that Majors
would correctly supply tho ditto, vhon
tho time was fixed. This throws all
tho responsibility of tho "doctored"
eqrtlficaio upon Majors, who has not
yot explained. But it looks strango to
us. If tho secretary of Htato did not
know In what year the consus was
taken, who In tho world did know, and
if he, in Lincoln, whero all tho statis
tics are. could not find out, how Old ho
expect Tom Majors, in Washington, to
gut at the true date? Wo do not want
to misjudge anybody, but look,very
much to us as if tho wholo thing wau
arrangod between thu two to assist
Majors to get his seat, and that Alex
ander would havo filled out tho dato
with 1872 had he dared to, but lqft it
blank for Majors to fix to suit him.
Tho Reporter sees tho matter, from
its disinterested standpoint precisely as
everybody elso noes it, from what at
present is known of tho caso, or from
roportod testimony portalnlng to it.
This Advkktihku has been charged
with "pitching into Majors unfairly,""
but such is not tho case, for wo simply
hold the samo views, that tho papers
of tho state, outside of Nemaha coun
ty universally hold, viz: That Secre
tary Aloxandor, whether intentional or
not, oponod tho way for a fraud; and
Majors, or some ono directly in his in
terest, and by his connivance and pro
curing, consummated It. That Majors
imlst bear tho onus of tho scandal and
suffer tho consequences can not well
ho avoided, from tho potent fact that
ho was tho party especially and solely
Interested. Mr. Majors may bo able to
clear tho matter up so as to relievo
himself, and most suroly ho needs to

generous fairness, it always extends to
an opp.onenf, will glvo him tho benefit
of it. And whether in our opinion ho
clears himself completely or not, what
over vindication or dofenso ho mav
havo will bo given our readors in fuli.
wo join with tho Iiepoiter In saying,
most truthfully, "wo do not want to
misjudge anybody;" but as wo are not
favoring Mr, Majors political profer
ment just now, having, as wo believe,
a better man for our locality and peo
ple, if Mr. Tom Majors places a club
In our hands, wo will break his head
with It if wo can. Wo make our, re
marks in this connection, explanatory
for the. ronBon aa above Indicated that
wo are charged with unfairness, when
our design has been, and is, to give all
the fact, wnd let tho ptjoplo Judgo for
lhmselvs. IX was for this very reason
that wo last week gave thoso lengthy
articles from Ihu Omaha papers, ono
from a Democrat to and tho other from
a Hopublioan standpoint, and each a
leading paper in its party. Now, in
conclusion, we gloj'y in tho name of
'fair play," and bo It romomborod that
no friend or adversary of ours ever
had his defense or vindication sup
nressed by us, If I'urnlshe-J us for pub
lication. We always profer to stapd in
the light and the more light the bettor.

Grant's old regiment, will hold a re
union at Terra Hauto on tho H)th of
September next, at which .Senator
Vorhees lias boon invited to dolivor an
address. It is to be hoped that tho
Hon. Dan. will not maku any refer
ence to "Lincoln dogs with brass col
Jars," or "the unholy war" with which
Mr. Voorhees had no synmathv in
common with the Union army. Wo
doubt not but Mr. Voorhees hns chang
ed his opinions since tho days of mus
tering in tho old Twonty-first Hegi
mont. But tho facts of history and
his open hostility to the Union armies
at that trying period will not clinrtgo,
and until tho Senator asks forgiveness
ho should bo hold responsible for his
acts. Daniol Voorhees was neither a
friend to tho Union soldier nor tho
cause for which ho fought. That la tho
record, and tho past, present and fu
ture all domand it should bo kept open.
Jt Is strango that soldiers, tried and
true, would invito an old copperhead
of tho deepest spots to address them.
