. The; "initial point" of the U. P. R. R.
is a matter of oine concern to the Omaha
and Council Bluffs papers. The last
heard of the "point" it was supposed to
be somewhere near the centre of the
Missouri liver. Tbe "point" has been
harrastwdHlsoX much that it was com
pelled to "take water."
There is a query in our midst. If the
Pennsylvania Central Com j any were
building the "Midland" road, and the
Midland has "busted," does that "bust"
the Pennsylvania Central? We look for
an explanation from "F. A. White, Esq,
President,", etc., or from Hon. J. B.
Now that "F. A. White's" vest
pocket is filled with Otoe county bonds,
and he can no longer use it to carry Rail
road iron in, and consequently his com
pany has collapsed. We suggest to the
people of south-west Nebraska that they
cannot do better than to turn their
attention toward the "old reliable"
the B. & M. which, by the way, is the
only road they ever had a reasonable
presjicct of getting.
Several gentlemen were congregated in
a cortiin office in this city one day dur
ing the recent storm, when the subject of
equinoctial storms came up for discussion.
One of the number asked another what
tins equinoctial line was, an 1 why we al
way had a storm when the sun crossed
it. The party to whom the que-tion was
a 1 !reed thought ftr some minute, and

him that ho- inu.it immediately h:ave

of robbery. He left. Murphy thought
thi. the easiest plan to get rid yf the
fellow. There is little doubt In the minds
of many that this man Kelly has com
mitted several robberies in this city, yet
the evidence to convict him i lacking.
We believe Murphy done the wisest
thing under the circumstances, as Kelly
will hardly stop in this place again.

LIGHT THE STREETS !
It -nn lf Done at h ii A rrn; f Celt of
lo than Fifty On I n .Niglit.
We have several times called attention
to the fact that the streets of this city
should be lighted, and yet there is no
move in that direction. Alderman Gass
did give notice that he would introduce
an ordinance making provisions therefor,
but we believe the matter rest3 'here.
We believe that Main street could be
well lighted from the railroad track up as
far as Sixth street at a cost not exceed
ing fifty cents a night after the posts and
lamps were provided. The posts and
lamps would probably cost $1-3 or $20 for
each light, and there should be ten or
twelve lamps between the railroad and
Sixth street. Experience in other towns
shows that one gallon of oil suitable for
these lamps, which costs about thirty
cents a gallon, will burn sixty hours.
This, divided between twelve lamps
would give five hours burning to each of
the twelve, an expense of only about
thirty cent-. These lamps could be filled,
lighted and extinguished by the police
men, without any additional expense,
and vre doubt not many of the posts and
lamps would Ik' put up by individuals in
terested, if the city would only furnish
the oil and keep them lighted. Crime
seeks dark places, and street lamps would
do more than extra policemen to prevent
crime in our city. It is a money making
scheme for the city to light the streets,
to say nothing of the convenience of the
thing. Let us .have" them lighted, say
we. Who says no?

Lands are sold for $1.25 per acre at the
Land Offices. By railroad grants, such
as contemplated, alternate sections are
donated to railroad coaipanies upon the
expressed condition that they build a rail
way within a given time; that is, that
huff the lands between the boundaries
of thej grant are given away but mark
the effect the remaining half is doubled
in value and it takes $2.5'J per acre to
purchase it, so that in effect the revenue
is not decreased one cent. On the con
trary, the bare fact of the construction
of the road fills up a country with set
tlers, which would have remained de
serted for another half century, but for
this wise legislation on the part of Con
gress. The influx of enterprising citizens into
the new territory, rendered habitable ly
the construction of our railways, increases
the revenue, not only in rapidly settling
the country but by increasing very largely
the taxable iroiertv over an area of
country which would otherwise remain
unpeopled for years. It is sheer mad-
ness tor these parties, opposing tne .c -

is the extent of their professed love of

We a-k our Representatives to exhibit

the astonished eyes of these questionable
friends of the people, and teach them
that what is sauce for the goose is sauce
for the cander.

prosperity of a town is the moral character
ind intelligence of its inhabitants, and the
interest and spirit manifested by them
in the establishment and maintenance
of public schools and churches.
Many as are the doubts, and diverse
theories, and speculative opinions, afloat
in the world upon subjects relative to the
fiual destiny of mankind in a future and
eternal state, all candid persons who
have once become acquainted with its
.teachings have ever been constrained to
adaiit that there is not, and never has
lieen, a society, or order, or creed, known
among men, that has "so magnified good
ness and moral ana social rectitmieas uas
,tne Christian Religion. And while 'the
i experience of all persons is uniform, that

do not esteem it a privilage to live where
themselves and their families (if they

and stated Divine Service.
Believing that, as a geueral rule, ap
plicable to the masses in our great coun
try, inteligenee and enterprising, and
religion go hand in hand, and that by
far the greater number of those who

them in selecting from the many thriving
towns ia the west tho one that they will
make their future homes, wiil deem it
important, before making a choice, to
ascertain xdier. they may obtain the best
prh iloge of this kind, it is my intention in

It is intended by all the societies referred
to, and not now provided with churches,
to make arrangements for their being

besides, it is understood, that two or
three other societies wiil be organized,

There are two school houses and three
public schools in town, in which arc
taught all the usual tranches of com
mon school education ; a competent and
efficient corps of teachers is retained, and
it is left to be the fault only of pupils cr
their parents if they are not as well and
as thoroughly taught here as in am' com
mon school in the country.
Such are the religious and educational
advantages and prospects of Lincoln to
day. Surely thoy are not of a kind of
which the citizens of any town, yet in
its third year, need be ashamed. Proba
bly there are few towns of that aje the
citizen of which can give better reasons
for pride ; and if the prosperity of the
city continues and increases, as there is
now every probability that it will, when
the church societies have become suffi
ciently large and wealthy to build more
large and permanent structures.
When the State University, with its
six subordinate colleges, containing fifty
one chairs, shall have been erected and
put in operation, it would seem that there
will be few cities in the west in which it
will be more desirable to live than in Lin
coln. Situated as it is uion a beautiful
site, in the midst of an extensive and
J fertile f:irmin country upen lauds

at a loss to know what more is necessary
to secure for it the first rank among the
inland cities of America.
The committee of investigation ap
pointed for the inspection of the south
ern portion of this State Messrs Thayer
and Millard returned on Saturday, with
Mr. C. R. Schuuer and Mr. McLaughlin,
his surveyor. They1 have surveyed
about 40,OiX) acres of land, and a meet
ing will immediately take place for a se
lection of the lands to be taken by the
members of the association, which was
organized some three weeks since. They
report the storm very severe on the head
waters of the Blue and Republican Yal
ley. Active improvement.1 are being
made toward Lincoln. No Indians or
traces of any, arc to be seen. After the
meeting of the members of the associa
tion, a full report will be published.
An Awkward Tl'ltneiH.
Lawyers have a belief that when a
wituess begins to yawn, and looks extra
indifferent, ho is probably lying. A
funny colloquy between a witness of this
class and a counsellor occurred a few
weeks a?o iu a court held not verv far
west. The particular matter at issue
was an account of several years' stand
ing ; defendant swore that he had paid it
in full, and, to corroborate him, called
this witness. The fellow mounted the
stand, took the oath, gaped, and testified
directly that the money was paid; that
he was present and saw it paid. Then
he was turned over to the plaintiff for

plain to the jury how a man ran be mow

The witness, saw that he had hopelessly
involved hiunelf in a quagmire-of false
hood. The eyes of the court, jury and
lawyers were upon him. and he ww-nu
way to extricate himself from his dilem
ma. But something had to be done ;
and so. with nowJiolitut yawn, he
drawled out the words: "Well, Squire,
I don't know as I care much about this
case, any way." I'ukurd s Mivttdji.
