a tviLin j. m i.uiti,ui;ii;
The Omaha ILrall of Wednesday
morning pretends to quote from (jo v.
Untler's speech in that city in regard to
the value of the land mortgaged by him
to secure the . 17,000 loau, and fpuotcs
him as saying
'"The laud near Pawnee, I bought ten
year ago for .-even dollars per acre. I
have bought another forty acres, for ten
dollars per acre."
Ceo. J.. Miller knows that Gov. Rut
ler made no such statement, and he
knows, further, that Gov. Butler did
state that he i'AU FORTY DOLLARS
l tat acp.e for a part of the land alluded
to, and that lie would not, to-day, sell
the land, id-ogelher, for $40,000 ; and
that there were -I'll) acres of the land
that he would not take $10 an acre for.
Geo. Ij. Miller heard Gov. Butler make
this .statement in the presence of more
than a thousand people, in Simpson's
Hall, in Omaha, and jet he has the
audacity, the reckless disregard for
truth, and the willingness to do Gov.
Butler an injustice, to state in his paper
that Gov. Butler said that he had
"'bought another forty for tea dollars per
acre." Can the man that will report to
sueh low down, despicable means to in
jure a political opponent, be believed in
anything lie says ?
The Mound City Setduul vividly
shows what a calamity might have be
fa!len this State had it not been pre
vented. It says:
"The State of Kansas would have
sufierrd terribly from drouth this season,
had it not leen for the many showers
that have been intersiersed at short in
tervals." wmmmmmmmmmmm

Kditou State .Toi rnai. : As a pri

who a little over a year ago signified a

not even make a decent "adventurous

robbery, cheating and swindling.
Now my dear Doctor, as to charge

years, partially from reading the slander

Governor Butler. Miller who edits a
dirty, slanderous, scurrilous sheet, ex
celling Satan himself, in his vile per
sonalities anl sneaking insinuations, and
sending out to his lew readers, a paper
beyond aii others, a burning dL-grace
to journalism. Just think of it! this
cotton thief editor, whose cotton spec
ulations have given him a reputation of
the worst possible kind, and whoso rob
bery of the daily bread of the children
oi honest laborers, should sink him be
neath the contempt of all honest men
and who , is so " utterly devoid of
state in behalf of Governor Butler, that
after two years watching for that won

"golden ring," that "thieving ring," of
which you state he is the chief, and my
self the associate, that I have failed to
perceive the slighle.-t evidence of that
wonderful ring, and conclude that it on!y
exists in the frenzied brain of the cot
ton speculator. I will further say that
I know of my own personal knowlcge
that Gov. B itler has refused time and
again to become interested in the sale of
lots and lands, which without defrauding
the State, would result in great gain to
himself, and I further state as a fact,
that his worst enemies cannot put their
fingers on a single transaction in the sale
of lots and lands by which he has de
frauded the State.
And now; a word in reply to your false
accusations in regard to the school loan
on my hotel. The hotel referred to,
the "Tichenor lloti'-e" cost thirty-five
thousand dollars, for which I have the
vouchers to show, and ti e furniture ten
thousand dollars, all of which, is insured
by policies in the following companies;
-bltna, Lori'Jards, Underwriters, i'hee
nix and Putnam, to the amount
of twenty-seven thousand live
hundred dollars the policies,
being as-irned to the State as security
for the loan of ten thousand dollars.
This loan bearing ten per cent, annual
interest being three per cent, more
than United States sefurities and I
hold a recoipe from the Treasurer of the
State for six months interest paid in ad
vance. And now, Editor Miller, I as
sure you that the judgment of evtiry
eandid, thinkins; man, after examining
the Tichenor Hou?e and the abstract,
will be that no possible contingency
except an earthquake, sinking our far
famed city will result in loss to the
general school fund of the State. The
above are the facts in the case.
In el o.-ii;g, my dear Doctor, allow me
to ask you to send me your dirty daily
for one year, and I promise to pay you
out of the first money plundered from
the State, either by myself.or Gov. But
ler. And should you chance to visit the
Tichenor House you will find an atten
tive landlord, a good looking proprietor,
and a room reserved for vou in the
tower of said hotel, which is forty-five
feet neaier Heaven than you will possi
bly ever reach. A. C. Tk'Hexok.

much goodness that we instinctively and

money has been accumulating in Louden;

accumulation is so great in the English

At an early hour last nmht the Court

to listen to speeches from Gov. Butler,
lion. T. 31. 3Iarquett and others.
Koyal Buck was called to the chair and
after a few appropriate remarks, intro
duced Gov. Butler who addressed the
audience in his usual happy style for an
hour and a half, during which time he
refuted every Democratic slander which
has been invented up to date, and in
such a manner as to convince the most
skeptical. We have no time nor space
to attempt a report of hia speech and
can only say, we regret that every man
in the tatc did not hear it. lie was
greeted with frequent applause and evi
dence of great satisfaction was visible in
the crowd, throughout the address.
lion. T. M. Marquctt was then intro
duced and in hL forcible style discussed
the political issues of the da3T from a
national stand point. lie did not appear
as a candidate for office, but as a de

was a grand success. We believe much

cf this city, has achieved, he thinks, the
theory and practice cf perpetual motion.
Many will recollect the photograph of
his machine, exposed at Andrew's din

places, last spring. It was given out
that a half interest in the invention (u
caveat only bavins been tiled then) had
been sold to Ham Buehmasterfor seventy
five thousaud dollars, and that the affair
would soon be exhibited to the public at
large. Hinee that time a full patent has
been received by Mr. Wickham, and
his machine has also behaved itself
handsomely, working without cassation
for months. The most essential portion
of the machine consists of a hojlow rock
ing lever, or beam, resembling the walk
ing beam of a steamboat engine, except
that it is bent at obli-pie angles in seve
ral places. Inside this arc placed ball,
partially filled with mercury. The ballsr

the balls are again impelled in their on
ward J-ace, only to be causht by the
valve that is forced open trcra without,
and pushed into the upper arm of the
beam or lever, ready to be hustled along
their never ending route.
A delicately adjusted weight and brake
are attached to the machine, and serve
to regulate its motion, but it is in th-j
hollow tpokes ami beams, and the balls

The proper and more efficient method
of meeting the mishaps and delinquen

at the time, or to go fut titer and divert
attention from the-m at the very instant,
if possible, or make a kind apology for
them. But afterwards, in an hour or
two, or better still the next day, draw
the child's attention to the fault, if fault
it was, in a friendly and loving manner ;
point out the impropriety in some kindly
way ; show where it was wrong or rude,
and appeal to the child's self-respect or
manliness. This is the best way to cor
rect all family errors. Sometimes it may
not succeed ; sometimes harsh measures
are required ; but try the deprecating or
kindly method with perfect equanimity
