The Indian had offered him no provo

bat a matter of a few months. Over
$50,000 worth of stock was subscribed
in Omaha on the day the books were

absent telegraphed to reserve stock for
them, amounting to much more. Over
$50,000 wa3 raised in Plattsmoutli,

OUR MAIL FACILITIES
By some hocus pocus, slightly smel
ling of red-tape, sometime last winter,
our mails were all changed, and ordered
around by Omaha. The ostensible rea
son then was that the river was not
safe to cross here, and that a delay was
liable to take place any day.
That's all very Well as far as it goes,
but the river i3 open now, and the
transfer boat crosses as regular as
clock-work, and still all riattslrionth
mails going or coming fronl the east
are sent by way of Omaha, and the
through mail cars from the west are
run to Omaha instead of to this point,
where they should be delivered.
The disadvantages of this plan, are
obvious m ot only are our postal agents,
men who had located their families
here, and made arrangements for their
lwmes here, dragged -away from such
homes', and forced itt rcn into Omaba
and stay there a large portion of f hfelf
time when off duty, but by the present
foolish anil ridiculous plan, all mails
to and from this place are dumiied on a
freight car, or at best, a baggage car,
and run up to the Junction at Oreapo
lis, without being in charge of any
Mail Agent. Strictly speaking, no one
is responsible for those bags while on
that transit. Tf they were robbed or
lost no ierson could be found to an
swer for their safety. The Postmaster
here would claim that they had passed
out of his hands; the Agents on the
postal car, never receiving them at all,
could not be held responsible, and we
hardly think the railroad company de
sire to warrant the safe delivery of that
mail, when not in the charge of any
properly authorized agent.
The contract, if we mistake not, calls
for the delivery of those mails at
Plattsmoutli, and makes this the initial
point for the through mails on the B.
& M. I?. R., and we should like to know
by whose authorit' they have been
thus improperly diverted.
RELIEF FOR TIIE POOR SAILOR.
The woes of "poor Jack" have form
ed the burden of story and song for
many A year. Reporters of the daily
press have told how he was welcomed
after a cruise, crazed with rum, robbed.
and then "shanghaed" on a vessel for
another long voyage. These narratives
at last reached the ears of the paternal
government at Washington, and a
Shipping Commissioner was appointed
to hxk after Jack's interests. The
natural result is a war between tho
Government agents and the keepers of
1 Hoarding and dance houses, drinking
dens and gambling holes, whence the
mercantile marine has been accustom
ed to draw their supply of sailors. To
day's illustrations show in striking
contrast what has been done for Jack's
comfort, and how he is inveigled Into
debauchery and recklessness of life.
There are two sides to the story, of
course, but it is evident that the gov
ernment means well, and will soon be
taught by experience how best to
adjudicate between the rights of ship
per and sailor. The great danger is
that an organized charity may become
a matter of salaries and fees, in which
the interests of those who are to be
protected wilt be lost to. sight. The
Shipping Commission will liinl it prud
ent to look to this, for the emotional
side of human nature sympathizes
strongly with Jack when he is in dang
er of sharks, and cares little whether
the latter are clothed in shop slops or
in government uniform. Graphic.
JUST LISTEN TO "ROSEY."
The Bee has been claiming a larger
circulation than !oth the Omaha daily
papers combined, for some time past.
Many persons doubted this fact, and to
support his assertions, Rosewater
comes out with the sworn oath and
"affy" of his business manager, which
says that the average sale of the Bee
to newsboys and agents is 107 per day,
and the circulation agent swears that
on the 10th of May he accounted for
1,185, thus making tho daily circula
tion of the Bee 1,292.
On the face of the above, of cn his
own check, we don't know which, Rosey
makes the following astounding offer:
Now, in order to afford our local con
temporaries an excellent opportunity
to turn an honest penny. We will make
them the following propositions: "We
are Willing to discount the total lxma
fide city circulation of the Herald and
Republican 250, and pay them five dol
lars for every subscriber they can pro
duce to exceed our city circulation.
"We are willing to discount the city
circulation of the Omaha Republican
900, and pay a similar sum for all ex
cesses over the Bee's city circulation.
AVe are willing to discount the entire
circulation of the Republican 700.
against the entire circulation of the
Bee, and the entire circulation of the
Iterald 300 against the entire circula
tion of the Bee, on similar terms.
i "We ate ready to discount the city
circulation of the Herald 650 against
the city circulation of the Bee upon
Whoop de doodle do! ITow's that
for high? Discount the Herald! the
the great immaculate Herald! The Pa
per that made Dr. Latham and all Ne
braska that wields a power Emperors
and Senators dread, and to whom the
world bows in obedience! Ye Gods,
can these things be, and overcome us
like a summer cloud!
Six hundred and fifty! Rosey, ain't
you chaffing? "Why, man, it'll swamp
'em. Go slow, old boy, or they'll both
get mad and quit, and then you'll have
nobody to fight, and will be in a worse
fix than tho man that tried to keep
tavern after an earthquake had killed
all the other inhabitants around there.
That Rosewater should crow over
the Republican and make some pretty
big statements is not to be wondered
at. The rivalry of party, and some
rather Frosty personal matters, would
naturally make him jealous of its influ
ences, and inclined to deprecate its cir
culation; but that he should get after
the immaculate Herald, the great pa
per (?) which has so long boasted of its
unbounded circulation and wonderful
feats of journalism, and which has pat
ted Rosey on the back and chirrupped
him on whenever he said anything was
out of Hitch in the Republican party,
that Rosey should go back on it and
thus expose the lies and the vanity
and the boasting of the Herald is the
unkindest cut of all.
Oh, Roses, hw could you I C."50 !
BRIGHAM YOUNG'S YIEWS.
An Interview onj.the Indian Question.
Salt Lake, May 8.
Yesterday the Omaha Herald's cor
respondent' Interviewed Brigham
Young, and obtained his views of the
Indian Question. Brighatn said that
in '47 he settled in this country with
140 souls, and for thousands of miles
around the land was infested with hos
tile Indians; that he gained their
friendship, and by acting honorably
with them, and never stooping to de
ception, kept it; that the hostility of
tlie Indians had been augmented by
robberies committed by unscrupulous
agents, and that they had lost all faith
in the honor and integrity of the gov
ernment Officials ; that the Modocs did
to the Commissioners just what they
thought was being endeavored to be
done to them, and that ieace should be
made at any cost or the entire West
would be embroiled in general Indian
warfare. When the correspondent
asked, "You indorse President Grant's
Indian policy then?" Young replied,
"I indorse the olicy so far it corrects
abuses and tends to a lasting peace and
to the civilization of Indians." Young
said the Indian war would destroy the
commerce, capital, and emigration be
tween Missouri and the Pacific coast,
and retard the settlement of the coun
try for twenty yea re, which would in
itself be a great calamity.
The above is from the great lover of
Mormons and Modocs, and here is the
editorial the Inter-Ocean perpetrates
upon it. See!
However objectionable the theologU J
al views of Brigham Young may bVf
he seems to have a pretty thorough and
correct understanding of the Indian
difficulties and to see the necessity of
great caution in our conduct toward
fthe Indian tribes. The great high
priest of Mormonism but states what
all must acknowledge to be the truth,
and what should put us Gentiles to the
blush, -in referring to the fact that in
1857 he settled in the West with 140
others, when for thousands of miles
around the country was infested with
Indians; that he gained their friend
ship and confidence by acting honora
bly with them, and, never stooping to
deception he has retained it. lie fur
ther states it as his belief that a gene
ral Indian war would destroy com
merce, capital and immigration be
tween the Missouri and l'iicific coast,
ami retard the settlement of the coun
try for twenty years. "Peace shoul be
made at any price," said Brigham, and
although this is rather sweeping, it is
very evident that peace should be made
and" maintained on some terms.
The Inter-Ocean is a pretty good pa
per. It is making a bold Railroad
fight, and it has able editors; but when
it comes to quote the Omaha HeJahFs
or Brigham Young's opinion of the
way to deal with Indians, it betokens
softening, either of the spinal column
or the brain.
We should like to ask how it was that
Brigham could keep the peace with
thousands of Indians, and yet mur
der and rob white men who
passed through the lands he claimed.
It would be very hard to convince the
Ieople of the West that the Mormons
did not sanctian and aid the butchery
and robbery of innocent emigrants by
the hundreds on their way to Califor
nia or to settle and help develop the
mines of Utah, about which he blows
so inuclr now.
Our people say very confidently that
Brigham kept good faith with the Indi
ans and aided and atetted them and
furnished them- with arnts and amuni
tion to kill white- emigrants, In order
that he and Ids- peculiar people and in
stitutions might b protected and pre
served. Almost any man with 140, or
a less number of souls, could go among
the wildest Sioux or Comanche tribes
to-day, and keep the peace with them
by furnishing them all they wanted at
guod rates, in exchange for their furs,
&c, and then pointing out some other
tribe or race of men that tley could
plunder with impunity.
BriefIf Young was so honest and
so kind to IndKns, how came so teany
white men to be killed in the Mormon
dominions ? The government had bet
ter ask the Mormolis that question be
fore it accepts Brlgham's theories on
how to treat Indians. Anybody now-a-days,
can tell how to protect Indian's,
Will some one tell us how to protect
whites from Mormons and others.

The Ouestlon of Incremation.
The English Medical Press says:
The attention of our readers may be
advantageously directed to the subject
of incremation of the dead broached by
Prof. Polli. He repeats some of the ar
guments that have been used against
the process, birt nowadays, when sani
tary science has made such advance,
every inch of ground almost has be

Great Britain, where the population is
out of proportion to the area of soil,

comes a question of consideration as to
how far burial in the earth is hygieni
cally correct or convenient. Habit and
the association of ideas have inured us
to the practice of eartli burial, so that
it seems alarming ever to discuss the
possibility of such a method being dis
placed, yet the incremation process,
could it le carried out so as not to hurt
the sensibility of our nature w hen bid
ding adieu to the last vestiges of our
felow-crcatures, offers certain advan

THE SECREf OF CBFECTIVE
Opinions of Engineers on the Economy
and Safety of Cheap Iron Structures.
Mr. Alfred P. Boiler, art old ciVil
engineer, says the fall of the Tf uesdell
bridge at Dixon, 111., was the natural
result of the mode usually adopted by
town committees for obtaining public
works of that character.
"What are your general views on the
subject?" . : .
"Well, IH tell you it is the strain'
ing after cheapness that has called into
this branch of business a certain cla3
of men as devoid of knowledge as they
are of conscience ; men who undertake
to build iron buildings fof the people
at prices little beyond what it would
cost to build a wooden bridge."
"And the result is?"
"Why, the result, of course, is, that
unfit workmen and poor material are
employed. It follows that the reputa
ble and scientific bridge-builder is driv
en from this sort of work, except in a
"Don't you regard the acceptance of
the lowest bidder in work of this char
acter as a false and dangerous econo
my?" "Of course ; for when tho work is
awarded to the lowest bidder, there is
no use whatever for A 1 firms to make
any effort to obtain it. Their knowl
edge, conscience, and strict sense of
justice to the public would prevent
them from even approximating to the
lowest bid. The town committee or
comtnissiollers who have to pass upon
the Work possess no knowledge on such
subjects. All they look at is the low
est price, and the unscrupulous builder
with his oily tongue, wheedles them
into the belief that his bridge will be
first-class, and will last for ages."
"What is your opinion about Trues
dell's bridge at Dixon?"
"I never saw it, but, on the strength
of the figures reported, I should say
that it was a miserable, ill-proiortioned
affair, and should have fallen before.
There are hundreds of bridges through
out the country that stand simply be
cause the loads are occasional, but let
them be crowded, as the Dixon bridge
was, and they'll surely go."
Mr. Campbell, Assistant Engineer to
the Department of Public Works, in
answer to a question by the writer,
said, "I think the fall was caused by
the unequal strain, the greatest load
being on the outside."
"Do you think an iron bridge of the
length of the Dixon bridge could be
properly built for $30,000 ?"
"I should say not. Why, that would
have just about been a fair price for a
wooden bridge. A good iron bridge
would have cost double. I suppose
this was a light bridge, but was
probbbly defective in proper bracing
somewhere, though if there had been
more persons in the centre, that is, if
the crowd had been uniformly distribu
ted, the bridge would probably have
supiorted their weight without dan
ger." Several gentlemen engaged in engin
eering work held similar views. One,
while conversing about the accideut,
remarked that he heard one of Trues
dell's bridges, at Elgin, 111., fell down
without being loaded. It was rebuilt,
but the new one also give way. One
of the same bridges at RockfonL 111.,
also fell when crowded with persons
looking at a boat race. Another gen
tleman remarked that several of Trues
delfs bridges had been built in New
England, but since the fall of the Elgin I
Bridge no more had been put up.

Novel Method of Settling the Indians.
The trouble we had with the Modocs
brings to mind a plan for settling the
Indian question, which a frontiersman
once imparted to me as the very best
that could be devised. "If I wuz the
Government," said he, "I'd buy lots of
barrls of whisky, and lots otiig knives,
and I'd put 'em all out somewhar in
the "West an' invite every devlish red
skin in the hull land to what they call
a conf rence. After they'd got thar, I'd
knock in the head o' the barrels, 4nd
scatter the knives all round loose, so
they'll le handy. Then I'd go way and
leave tho Injuns to themselves. O'
course they'd take to the whisky and
the knives, and afore sundown thar
would'nt be more than one d redskin
left, and I'd go back and knock his
brains out afore he could do any more
damage. That, sir's, the only reel way
to settle the Injun question. I've been
among 'em, an' I know. Plenty of
whisky an long knives '11 fix 'em "Out,
an' nothing else will."
