J. A". MACMURPHY, Editor.
A great deal of talk is going on about
the Republican candidate for Governor,
and we are asked upon every side, "what
we think about it ?"
We think it is a false charge through
out. There has been nothing but second
hand evidence adduced as yet, to show
that Col. Furnas ever . received this, or
any other money.
We want to know something about the
character of Moffit, before we shall be
lieve his evidence as against the solemn
Dledffed word of Col. Furnas that there
is no foundation in the charge.
Another evidence that Furnas is right
and honest, is that we know him not to
be a natnral bom fool at all events, and
unless he was and is that, he would nev
er have allowed his name to go before
the Convention with that stain upon his
The Col. is stumping the state, and is
away from the centres of news, and prob
ably has not seen Mr. Robertson's card ;
when he does, the facts of the certificate
and the payment of the money will no
doubt be called up.
Hon. S. M. Kirkpatrick, of this coui
ty authorizes us to say that the charge of
ehanging his vote, is altogether untrue,
as he voted on 3 way, an i for the remov
al of the Capital throughout the session.
Ths Omaha lhrald already admits
that this is the case, and is evidently
paving the way for a complete back down
on the whole matter. Our fair and oth
er matters aosoro our time ana space
to day, but we shall have further to say
on this matter sonn.
A writer iu the Trib. & Rep , calling
himself "Justice" says Dr. Miller got
the $3,000 and now wants to lay it on
Furnas. He claims to be an old resi
dent and fays ho knows.
A Southwestern editor remarks: 'If,

proverbially trying, how much harder in

An American Aloe attracted a good deal
of attention, and a very large specimen
of the :India Rubber Tree," unusual
in this country, also drew the attention
of many eyes.
Mr. Ilobson, of Mt. Pleasant, showed

Referring to the Binghampton Roor
back Governor Seymour thus turned a
sharp point on Mr. Greeley's handwrit
ing, at his own expense:
I know it was said that at an early
day his nomination was contemplated by
my.-elf, and some very imaginative ren-
rlemea living in the southern part of the
btate have amused themselves by mak-
inir up affidavits to prove that his nomi
nation was in some degree brought
about by my interference. I don't know

Came before the public they don't seem
to stand upon the strenirth of their
wnrds but try to fortify themselves by
affidavits, which is as much as sayinn

We have said but little about the Fur
nas matter, as it was not a fight of our
making, nor did we think it needed our
answering Ihc it tonne, ami Itepuhh-
can is doing the subject justice. This
paragraph from the Herald stating Gov.
beymour s opinion of a party that re
quires to bolster up its tcords by ajfida-
vit.t strikes us as jut about the case with
Robertson and the Omaha lArald.
The Omaha Herald calls us a "fool."

lish to exist in its midt. And it we
were to edit the Nebraka Herald af

lace would turn us, ofiico and all, into
the Missouri river.

to institute a suit against the Umaha
Herald for libel. Meanwhile other
grave and serious charges are being
made against the E litor of that paper
which places him in a position that no

He is shown to be so utterly and thor

The Omaha Herald is certainly send
ing a very good report abroad to the
world of what kind of men the early set
tlers were in that city. It must be an
honor to be an early settler there.
How many years of patient writing
and earnest talk will it take to undo the
evil reports the Herald is now spreading
on the records of this State ?
Already a man must spend half his
time cast iu trying to convince the peo
ple that we are not desperadoes and
thieves Hundreds of people and thous
ands upon thousands of dollars have
been turned away from our shores by
this newspaper's vile charge?. To-day
property is at a stand still, and business
stagnant in Omaha, because Eastern
men will not allow their money to be
sent to a town that has been and is daily
represented by one of its own papers as
a nest of thievea.
At every point East, one is met with
these charges, copied from the Omaha
Herald. Much that the Emigration So
cieties and the B. & M. R ii'n ad with
their immense advertising, have accom
plished, the patient toil of years, by her
oving citiz.ms, is being undone in a few
days, by this terrible corruption curer
and his slang.

Shale or ro Shade in Tacturor.
Farmers have often, through the agri
cultural press, and otherwi-e, been ad
vised to plant trees in prairie pastures to
make shade for stock. Now if stuck will
put ou more flesh in a pasture with
shade than where there is none, then
shade is desiruble, otherwise, not so.
Having for many years pastured where
there was coo 1 shade, and for the past
two seasons, where there was nori", and
observed closely the habits of cattle and
horses, with reirard to feeding I hare'
become satisfied that stock of any kind
(except perhaps hog) will thrive and
do best where there is 110 shade at allr
from the fact that without shade, stock
will fe3d several hours in the day that
otherwise would be fpent in the shade
