From the very commencement of this
Jmpeachment-inrestisation inulJle, wo
have said that a full, fair, and impartial
investigation should be had, anl the
truth fchould come out, let who would
be injured thereby ; but from the mo
ment it was made plain that such was
not be the course pursued, anl that
nothing was fought except such as looked
damaging to Gov. Butler, and to no one
else; from the moment the committee
determined to smuggle in such evidence
as they might want, and exclude such as
they choose not to have ; the moment
they determined to sit as a committee
"appointed to convict," without, regard
to justice, that moment we dared to take
as advanced grounds against the action
of the committee as we would against
David Butler if he were fairly proven a
racal. As a choice bit of the "secret
history" of this investigation business,
we submit the following evidence of Mr.
Mitchel, as reported y the investigation
committee, and aa published in the
"Mr. Hunt requested me to go to the
postoffice in Lincoln ; that the Governor
was to drop a letter in the office with a
check in if, and that lie had applied at
the postofliee, and being a stranger, could
not procure the letter ; 1 then went with
him to the ofiice, and introduced him to
the postmaster : I then informed the
postmaster that Governor Butler was to
leave an mipoitant letter in the oiuce,
and that Judge Hunt wished to get it ;
the postmaster then .searched for the let
ter, and reported tnat he could not Cud
it : we then lott and came to the trover
nor's room at the Capitol, but discover
ing there was no light in the Governor's
room, returned, and on our wav met
Capt Baird, the postmaster, who in
formed us that he had found the letter ;
Judge Hunt then started to the post
office, and soon after returned to my
house, and stated thnt he had got the
letter and that it was all right, and that
it contained a check from Governor But
ler ; I do not recollect the amount of
The above is one of the most damag
ing things that has yet been produced
against Gov. Butler, and will cause many
an honest man to tdiuke his head omin
ously, and say that there appears to be
some good woik for an investigation.
But let us look a little further, and ii
vestiy ite this matter before we pass sentence-
In the Lincoln Journ al,o Thurs
day morning we Eud the following item
published in connection with the above
testimony, which may be considered as
having some bearing upon the subject :
Mr. Mitchell states oa the stroets that
he further said in his testimony that
"Judge Hunt told him at the time that
pome member of his family was about to
arrive from the East, and that he was jn
the citj' without funds to pay certain
freights upon goods and other expenses,
and that the Governor had agreed to
lend hiat a sum t utfic-isnt to pay these
expenses, but that the person taking the
evidence said that tliit trns not import
ant and J id not tale it doiciu"
Ah, no! This was not important t It
did not lock bad acrcinsl Gov. Butler.
consequently it was not needed j
by this committee. Probably the J
committee considered this latter
portion of Mr. Mitchell's evidence
as given in "confidence," and therefore
they did not feel at liberty to say any.
thing about it. Is this the manner in
which the Governor of a State is to be
investigated ? Do the people of the
State do the press of the state endorse
any such one-sided action as the above
would indicate. May not be inappro
priate to say, right here what is known
to all in this locality, that we have never
been an endorser of Governor Butler s
course as Governor or commissioner.
We have always believed that he took
too many ie.-ponsiblities and did not
adhere so closely as he should to the
letter of the law in rnanj' of his official
action.'. Yvro opposed bis nomination
for Governor two years ago, also at the
List State Convention where we cast
nine votes against him for as many suc
cessive balloting, and never- cast a vote
for him in convention yet we believe in
the great underlying principle of the
Republican party "equal and exact
ustice to all men." We have said, upon
all occasions, that we believed Gov.
Butler was deserving of censure for the
apparently loose manner in which ho
transacted much of the State business,
but we are not in favor of attempting to
convict any man, cither before the high
court of impeachment or before the puD."
I'm upon ex jtarte testimony, and especial
ly When evidence is garbled and fixed
wp as the above statements would indi
cate that Mr. Mitchel's was, for the
purpose of making it bear all one side.
Let us have justice, even though Gov.
Butler should be proven innocent.
The St. Louis Times of Sunday morn
ing has the following item in its river
column: "The Glasgow,Sthe first boat of
tho season for Omaha, left last night
with a better cargo than it was expected
she would secure. She had one bun
dred-and fifty soldiers, seventy five cabin
passengers, and one hundred deck pas
sengers emigrating west, and some
freight. Anything like a respectable
trip back will make Capt. Lamothe re
turn in good humor."
The Omaha Ilerahl of this morning
rpeaks of its "unswerving fidelity to
truth as t. understands it." That may
be all very correct, but is not the Herald
too great a stranger to truth for it to
have a very good "understanding" of il

very foreign to the truth and call it

Dropping into the Land Department
of the Burlington & Missouri Railroad
yestcrda', we found all hands busy, dis
patching current bu.-iness an l preparing
for that which is to come. Mr. George
S. Harri;, tho Comi-sioner, who has
been in the land and colonizing business
for fifteen years, (was by the way one of
the proprietors of the Ncvin enterprise
Adams count y, Iowa, in 185G) says he
has never known anything to compare
with the present rush for the West, and
especially in tho way of colonies. In a
lew days a colony of between one hun
dred and two hundred families is ex
pected at Stanton, on the B. & M., a
short distance this side of Red Oak.
Several othr colonies, both for this
State an l Nebraska, are also known to
Ikj organizinc and will be on in due time.
Tho ii. &"M. Land Department has
its agents in Great Britian, Genu any.
Holland, Sweden, Norway, an l we don't
know how many other countries. And
now that there is to te a hegira from
A'sace and Lorraine, we suppose t!ic
fleeing inhabitants will be duly tmtiiicd
of the lands which flow with milk and
honey along the great Nation rather in
temational highway, otherwise known
as the Burlington Route, l or every
nationality there are descriptive circulars
maps, etc., in their own language. And
thus these lands are going into the hands
of actual settlers, who will in a few years
have for themselves and thMr children
a well cultivated farm and tho most de
sirable of ho ues. Burlington ILivclc

Article second deGnes the powers and
duties of the mayor.
Article third defines the powers of the
Article fourth defines the powers and
jurisdiction of the Police Judge.
Article fifth embraces niiscellaneou
items not enumerated in the foregoing.
There seems to be much question as
to whether we arc compelled to organize
under this act. We give above all there
is in the law bearing upon this subject,
and leave each one to judge for himself.
The first and fifth sections, as published
above, would indicate that we are com
pelled to orgarrze under this act ; while
ection two says emphatically that cities
may hrcome cities of the second class by
complying with certain requirements,
thereby saying, in plain language, that
they cannot become cities of the second
class within the meaning of this act un
less they do comply with the require
ments of this section. Section four pre
serves rdl rights heretofore accrued under
and by virtue of any former enactment.
This would indicate thai we would con
tinue the exercise of our rights accrued
under the enactments giving us our pros
ent charter, provided we do cot sec fit
to organizo under the new law.

For many years past tho settlers have
been systematically crowding upon the
"Kaw Reserve." The last reports from
Emporia indicate a "deepening" of the
struggl". Soma adventurous squatters
tho other day commenced building
houses on a coveted portion of the "con
secrated ground,' and showed signs of
making themselves permanent. The
Kaw agent thundered and threatened,
but the squatters remained. He then
notified the settlers that he would have
them put off by "bayonets ;" but as no
soldiers came the settlers grew saucier
The last news from the disturbed lo
cality represents the squatters still in
possession. There is also a great mass
meeting called on the Rc ervation by the
settlers to secure an organization for mu
tual protection. It is also rumored the
squatters arc soon to be reinforced by
three hundred more settlers now en route
from Cincinnati, and that they are re
solved to have th.-ir claims at any cost.
It looks now as if this movement was
likely to result in actmlly opening up
the Kaw R.'scrve to white settlers
Nothing could b j a greater blessing to
that section, and the squatter movement
has the sympahy of all classes and condi
tions of people Leateiticorth IJidhtsn.
