HAMILTON EXPRESSES CONFI
New YoitK, August l.-An inter
view with Dr. Hamilton was publish

statements than his dispatch to his
wife on Saturday. He says emphatic

reasonable dubt f his recovery."
"Will you permit me to ask one
question. Do you think the resident

"He will undoubtedly be aula to le

Good morning, sis.
So many complaints have come to
us about the breaking of the Sabbath,
by ball playing on Sunday at the Driv
ing Park, that a notice forbidding that
amusement there appears elsewhere
and we hope it will uot have to be en
forced by law.
One wing of the Ctpitol is about
done, and tother ought to be commenc
ed. Now we're at it put it through,
right through till done , middle and all ;
the sight of that scabby old centre
piece makes a man sick, when he goes
to the capitol.
Some of you fellows that owe us
and find it "hard times to raise money,
now's your time. Bring us some good
oats or corn ; don't wait until every
one else is supplied, come now we
want it right away, and good, not mus

Tns New York papers are trying to
make out that they have as good sen
ators as Nebraska, any way, and all
because a Boston paper snubbed 'em
and said since Conkliug went out New
York ranked with Nebraska on a n
atorial timber. &c and so on.
In the haste to kill Conkling the
Albany Legislature Roosters forgot t
pass their bill for a special election to
fill the places of Lapham and Miller,
and may have to put the people to
more cost by an extra session or some
expedient to cover the omission.
Their genius for blundering is im
mense. G. W. YorNO, a Cass County soldier
boy, who came here ia 1867 without a
nickle, sold this past year, from July
to July, 82075 worth of hogs. Mr.
Toung has 2C0 acres of land paid for,
geod houses, stock and everything to
match. Made it mostly out of hogs.

A terrible explosion in a distill
ery took place at Peoria, Illinois, July
30th, by which seme eighteen persons
were killed and others scalded. It
was the Woolner Brothers' distillery
which was burned some weeks ago.
About 80,000 barrels of beer, however
wre left, which they wanted to di
till In some way. During this opera
tion the explosion occurred.
One of the shameful things that
the late X. Y. Hiuubble has devel
oped is the ulter unreliability of the
Associated press dispatches.
While our people are indignant over
the power and misuse of monopolies,
meaning generally railroads, it would
not be amiss to pay some attention to
this gigantic, autocratic, irresponsible
monopoly of all monopolies that pre
tends to give us our news, and lies
like a house afire to suit the interests
f Its managers or local gathereis
If it is considered unvhlrsome for
a congressman or senator to take fees
in cases and act in law suite on mat
ters where he may Lave a vote, what
shall be said of newspapers, great
monopoly newspapers, that procure
situations and places for their em
ployees in government offices, where
they hold managing power over
the news that goes out about all gov
ernmental affairs and can color it to
suit their taste?, and in order that
they may keep their places in the
"press gang". No more daugarous pre
cedents, no fouler blot on our freedom
exists than the management of these
great newspaper fountains at present.
Civil Service reform, an honest prac
tical civil service refoirn is the next
great question of the day. Every sen
sible mau that aims to knowledge in
public affairs sees the danger. Many
foolish suggestions ars maJu for its
cure. One prime remedy is overlooked
y all we have seen thus far. Elect
the U. S. senators by the people and
you eliminate one-half the temptation
afc once. A senator cannot give all
the people a id ape. Corrupt dema
gogues weuld not care to run ff tjjfl
legislature were it not for the great
chance for pewer and plunder in "mak
ing a senator."

Meanwhile tti .illeW o the uuni
ber of two hundred, or more, aoerift'
bled in the Court House Monday, with
the avowed intention of taking the
prisoner out and lynching him. The
Sheriff informed them that while he
had uo sympathy f prisoner and
thought no punishment severe bftng
for the crime, the prisoner was in his
charge by law and lie shwuld protect
him. Other citizens represented that
the man now being in the hands of the
law. h6 hoiiJd have a trial, and then
if the law did not Mit0 oyt something
like justicM t would be tin .iog.h
to take other measures. On tilt; as
surance that justice should be done
the crowd dispersed.
While we cannot in any way coun
tenance mob iw w are fflad the meet
ing took place. The crima is most
dastardly and outrageous, and the Jaw
in many cases seems so inadequate
and lawyers can be found generally to
try and clear such fellows on tech
nical quibbles that we deem an order
ly meeting of the fathers and brothers
of this community to express their
determination to protect their house
holds and execute justice is both right
and projer. When it 2otue$ to the
pas that a man's family are not afc
when he leaves them in the ttiorning,
and our children are abused on the
very streets before our eyes, as you
may say, it is time that all useless de
lays and law quibbles are done away
with and stern, exact and unrelenting
justice is meted out to ail tramp, vag
abond and rapists. Public safety dpr
mands it. and the parents of children
would be less than men if they let this
scamp go free by any quibble of Uw
or skill of lawyer.
Outrageous as is the crime above al
luded to, it brings to mind some things
on the other hand.
Is there any town on earth where
children are left to run in the streets
as here? It is impossible to drive
through our streets with safety, for
youngsters in the roads, all over. That
more do uot get killed, mojy enticed
away by tramps is oniy God' mercy
and no good management of the pa
rents. We want a better public sen
timent here on this matter and the
better educated and thoughtful peo
ple should take the advance. Chil
dren of all ages are on the streets too
much, they are aucy and imuudent
beyond compare, thev are of leu dan
gerous to life and property for thev
do not hesitate to hoot and yell and
try to scara horses as they pass, or
even throw sticks and things at pass
ers by. The boys in many cases Uarn
to sweat, or rather, do swear in a man
ner that turns one' blood coid.
Twice within the past month we
have seen lads trying to flitht in the
open street. They called each other
severally, numbers of times G d
s of b-s, and double and trebled the
oatks with adjiat;es such as"atinking
s of a b ," &c, &c.
Now these are not nice thing O
put in a paper, but the cure, if any,
mmt be utfejs, aud perhaps if people
see in print once just what language
their children use they will make some
effort to stop it.
Twice lately the editor of this pa
per has taken boys aside and tried toij
shame them out of such talk, by ap-1
pealing to their pride and manhood.:
