From tbe Omuha Republican. Oct. li.
Tlie VerUict Hit Lvimout nnd Dulien.
The Legislative table in another col
umn shows a very healthy sta:e of affairs.
That body, it will be seen, is Republican
bj- four to one. It is true thai some of
these Republicans were elected in oppo
sition to the regular ticket. But, local
questions, and not political principles,
obtained in all these cases. So far as
our observation extended, not one of the
bodies that assisted iu the.-e independent
nominations, alluded to differences ex
ccpt of a local character. In this county
the bolting movement was made in the
intcie.-.t of a Senatorial candidate. Not
so eUcwherc. It is therefore, fair to
presume 'hat these independent Repub
licans will act in good laith with their
party friends on the Senatorial and all
other matters of a party character. Any
other presumption would be an imputa
tion upon their political integrity.
We are told that some gentlemen in
ihis city are already calculating the
chances of carrying the Senatorial fight
into the Legislature, and effecting com
binations between the Democrats and
Republicans (if there are such) who are
unfriendly to the election of General
Thayer. We say to such and to all that
it is legitimate for Republicans to vote
their personal preferences in the caucus
of their own party, when that shall be
convened to designate a candidate. But,
when the decision is made there, that is
an end of controversies according to all
the legitimate usages of party. To carry
the contest further, to refuse to go into
caucus, to form combination with -Democracy,
or to ake any step in that di
rection is treason to the Republican or
ganization, and fixes upon the authors
of any such combination the brand of
trcachery so deep as to cut them off
from a further right to participate in the
councils of the party. About this there
cannot be, there will not be two opinions,
if the Republicans of Nebraska recog
nize the claims aud usages that regulate
parties in every section ot the country.
Therefore, we thus, now and here, at
this early stage of the discussion, warn
those who are seeking to keep up the
Senatorial contest, to embitter the quar
rel and to make the Democratic minority
in the IjejUlature a party to it, that
they do so at the peril of a reprobation
that will come up not only from the true
Republicans of this fctate, but from the
Republicans of the whole nation.
There are metes and bounds to per
sonal controversies within party lines.
We supposed that these bounds had been
reached in this city and county ; indeed,
that they had already been treasonably
transcended. For, any man who openly
labors and votes with and for the politi
cal enemies of the Republican -party, no
loi.ger has a claim upon that party. . He
has exiled himself by his own voluntary
a-t, and has no more right to counsel
with and dictate the action of his party
than any other political enemy. If this
is not so, political organization is a farce,
and the party is at sea, without compass
We have treated kindh, aid withmore
than customary party forbearance, those
who, in this contest, voted a bolting Re
publican ticket. We know that the gen
tlemen who compose that ticket, that
the distinguished Republican in whose
interest it was supported, and nearly all
those who in good tauh supported it,
claimed to be sincere Republicans. They
have proved, iu the past, their title to
this position. While we regret the
Questionable Dosition in which thev
placed themselves, when it was no longer
doubtful that they stood in opposition to
tbe clearly expressed sentiment of a large
majority ' their cn psrfy. wop-framed
from the utterance of words of bitterness
and denunciation. Now that the elec
tion is over, and the verdict of the party
is recorded by the overwhelming majority
of sixteen hundred against four hunrred,
there is no longer reason or justice for the
continuance of this unnatural and demor
alizing feud. If there is any virtue in the
majorities, the majority given on Tuesday
last is certainly decisive enough to de
mand recognition. We are sure that
the fact will he recognized by Republi
cans throughout the State, by the Re
publican members elect of the Legisla
ture, and by the press or the State, who
cannot fail to see that in the con inuance
of this internecine struggle, are the germs
of future disorganization and defeat,
bolting organs and corrupt appliances.
We claim that the delegation elect from
this county, backed as it is by so emphatic
a verdict of the ballot-box, has a right to
speak for Douglas county and to. receive
tnat consideration usually. accorded under
circumstances so unambiguous.
One 9Cmb Killed on Knak River
Another EntMlljr Wnadea.
We have been kindly permitted to
werusea letter received by Mr. Thomas
Mack, of this city, from P trick Hulihan,
dated Snake River, October 13th, con
taining an account of a desperate en
counter between a party of five gold
seekers, known as the "Snake River
Expedition." and twents'-eight Indians.
This party left Salt Lake City ibr the
Snake River country, and had been out
six days, when they were attacked by
Indians, as above stated. John Donovan
was instantly killed, and Michael Higgins
was wounded so badly that he cannot
possibly recover. Thomas McLaughlin
also received a slight flesh wound. Four
ponies, and everything of value belong
ing to the party, were captured, and the
survivors barely escaped with their lives.
The next day the party was reinforced by
an acquisition of fifteen men, and Thomas
McLaughlan was made Captain. With
this force they searched for and found
the Indians, killed two of their number
and recaptured three of the ponies.
The writer states that Higgins cannot
possibly recover, he having been shot in
the abdomen, and that, as soon as his
fate is settled, the party will return to
Omaha. They will probably reach here
about the 24th inst. Omaha lleruld.
Spend Wl ely.
liook most to your spending. No
matterwhat comes in, if more goes out
you will always be poor. The art is not
in making money, but in keeping it ;
little expenses, like little mice in a barn,
when they are many, make great waste.
Hair by hair, heads get bald. Straw by
straw, the thatch goes off the cottage,
and drop by drop the rain comes in the
chamber. A barrel is soon empty, if
the tap leaks but a drop a minute.
WThen you begin to save, begin with
your mouth ; there are many thieves
down the red lane. The alo jug is a great
waste. In all other things keep within
compass. In clothes choose suitable and
lasting stuff, and not tawdry tiueries.
To be warm is the main thing; never
mind the looks. Never stretch your lej.s
further than the blanket wiil reach, or
you wiil soon be cold. A fool may make
money, but it needs a wise man to spend
it. Remember it is easier to build two

The great sensation at the capital of
the fctate since the recent land sales, is
the celebrated Salt fountain of Dr. Evans

some months and finally having reached
a depth or six hundred teet, they sud

It flows at the rate of two barrels a min
ute. The tubing already in, raises some
fifteen or twenty feet above the surface
of tbe ground and the water flows over
the top in a beautiful water spout. It
is visited by large numbers every day,
and it is well worth a trip to see it
Visitors think as much of visiting the
fountain as they do the public: buildings
of the State at Lincoln. The salt man
ufacture in Nebraska is now an assured
success, and there will soon be an ex
penditure of capital at Lincoln which
will make it rival tbe salt manufacturing
establishment of Michigan and New
York. This staple article of commerce
will not only be one of the principal
means of building up Lincoln, but it will
be of incalculable value to the State at
Omit nnd Style
Coming into court one day, Erskine
perceived the ankle of Mr. Balfour, who
generally expressed himself in a very
circumlocutory manner, tied up with a
silk handkerchief. "Why, what's the
matter?" said Erskine, "I was taking a
romantic ramble in my brother'sground,"
replied Balfour, "when coming to a gate,
I had to climb over it, by which I came
in contact with the first bar, and grazed
the epidermis of my leg, which has
caused a slight extravasation of blood."
"You may thank your lucky stars," said
Erskine, "that your brother's gate was
not as lofty as your style, or you must
have broken your neck."

nothing so good but its name may be so

faith is, wo believe its name may be so

any process, any act. of the soul, is so
much thought about that it is made mme
prominent than what it acts toward, the
true working of things is perverted. It
is through Faith that we come to God
and Christ. But sometimes wc wish we
could hear less said of '"faith," and more
of God and Christ themselves. To a

The mobile entered Bagneux where the
Prussians had erected a barricade.

gallant Republicans of Nebra-ka."

The character of a community depends
much on the young women. If tbe latter
are cultivated, intelligent, accomplished,
the young men will feel the requirement
that that they themselves should be up
right, and gentlemanly, and refined ;
but if their female friends are frivolous
and pilly. the young men will be found
to be dissipated and worthless. But re
member always, that a sister is the best
guardian of a brother's integrity. She
is the surest inculcatorof faith in female
purity. As a daughter, she the true
light of home. The pride of the father
oftener is centred in bis sons, but affec

Hoiiiethlntc to Item ember.
An old Chinese proverb gays: "Do
not stop in a cucumber field to tie thy
shoe." The meaning is very plain.--Some
one will be likely to fancy that you
are stealing fruit. Always remember the
injunction, "Abstain from all appear
ance of evil." Do not stop under the
saloon porch to rest yoarself, however
shady the trees may be, or however easy
the chairs. Some one may fancy you arc
a common lounger there, and so your
pood nnmc be tarnished. Don't go to a
li.pior saloon to get a glass of lemonade,
however refreshing it would seem to you.
Hal her buy the lemons and prepare the
cooling beverage at your home, where
others may share it with you, probably,
too, at no greater expense than your
single glass would cot you. Somebody
seeing yon drinking at the bar, will be
sure to tell the storj and will not be par
ticular to stae that you were drinking
only lemonade. Then, too, if you are
careless about tbe appearance of evil
you will soon grow equally cart-Kss about
the evil itself. Young'! People's Helper.
