The Oniawa Ihmhl makes little of an

Dr. Miller has no Mr.' Thoinaa to deal
with in (hid mutter, but a St. A. P.

aud do not now ftoop to his defence, but
we notioa the Ibllowin in ordrr to say a
''Milbr knows of thi rasia'itf, and

Thia is the Crt time Dr. Miller has al
luded to the ir'alt Land Steal (and we
i::ist that it was a "steal" cf the Cr?t
magDitvde). There is one very noticeable i
feature in the above, to-wit : th.at the
Dr. "doas not dara to endorse" the
r.ttal, yet attempts, by verbiage, to ,o:i.
Tey the ilea that it was a'l a fair trans
ition. While it may be a "purely le
gui (jue.'tlon," and one which will be
"Cnally determined by the courts," yet
it is a 'juof tion in the solution of which
ercry t-itizen cf Nebraska is financially
interested. When Dr. Miilor says he
"jeithor knows or believe." in any ras
cality connected with it," we are at a
loss to know what would be required to
constitate rascality in his judgmrnt. We
certainly think Mr. Morton's own test i
mony, especially when taken with that
of Mr. I 'ray, stamps the transaction as
one of the most villainous ever perpe-
trated in the SMte, and nothing but the rupture existed. The war for the sup
magnitude of the steal, and the fact predion of the Cuban rebellion was cx

could be hour I from its "narrow house,"
he could tell yoa something of the Ras

There is a statement in the above item
which we desir to corrpct. The Herald
Fpeaks cf our "personal malignity to
wards Mr. Morton" as being the cause
i f o.:r exposure of this matter. "We
desire to say that we have known Mr.
Morton for many years, and neither har
bor nor have cause to harbor a single ill
feeling toward him. In fact, so fir as
we know, our personal telationi with
Mr. Morton are nnd always have been
of the mo.t flimsy character. Nei
ther do we believe that in his private af
fairs he is at i! "rascally" cr untrust

wrong his neighbor out of a dollar.
The gront difficulty with Morton (and
perhaps IV. Miller is not entirely free
from the same fault). i3 that the political
school in which he received his training
taught that it was no harm to rob the
public, provided you could do it without
a?tua?!y takipg the coin from the aults.

This wonderful vegetable restorative
H the sheet-anchor of the feeble and de
bilitated. As a tonic and cordial f jr the
aged and languid it has no equal among
stomachics. As a remedy for the ner

pecially subject, it is superseding every
other stimulant. In all climSites, tropi

specific in every species of disorder
which undermines the bodily strength
