Gciteau'8 trial is getting to be a
farce. Trmre, a Chicago Thieves'
Criminal Lawyer is to be employed

ulous parody on law; on justice;
that half a dozen lawyers should be
engaged and thousands of dollars
wasted to prove a man guilty of a
heinous crime that twenty witnesses
saw him commit in open da3, and
that he has confessed himself. The
law never contemplated that; the
constitution never provided for au3
such nonsense. What our forefath
ers did mean, what the constitution
did intend to guard against, was any
innnecent man being dragged out of
bed, taken unguarded, and tried tor
his life on false charges, as was too
often the case in monarchial coun
tries at that time. That is what is
meant, and that was what was aimed
at in such particular terms, insuring
every man a "fair trial"; but that
known thieves, murderers, confessed
assassins should have months to pre
pare, counsel, at the expense of the
honest, men of the land, and all sorts
of quibbles and technicalities used
to clear them is monstrous; and is a
perversion of the end and aim of all
law and all justice.
Mississippi and Missouri River Conven
tion. Ed. Hi-.rald: At your request I
submit the following communication
relative to the proceedings of the
Mississippi River Improvement con
vention, and which I hope will prove
of some interest to your many readers.
At the solicitation of our Governor, I
was one of the parties who attended
and represented the interests amd sen
timents of our state, as to the ques
tion under consideration, viz: the im
provement of the Mississippi River,
and its navigable tributaries; the prin
cipal tributary being our own Mis
souri. The convention was called to
order on the 26th and terminated
its labors on the 28th day of October.
The main object nnd scope of the con
vention was to consider means and
measures, that would bring to the
people of these great valleys cheaper
transportation by way of water, for
their products, gaining access to the
markets of the world by way of the
Gulf. It has been demonstrated by
engineering skill in the old countries
as well as by the improvement of the
mouths of the Mississippi by Captain
Eads in this country, that our large
water courses may be so improved by
deepening and widening that safe aud
permanent navigation may be had for
the transportation of grain, in such
quantities, and within such time to
the Gulr, and thence to the market of
the world, that the price of shipping
will be reduced below one half what
it now costs by railroad, thus creating
a healthy competition with the benefit
accruing to the producer.
The proiHJsetl mode of transporting
grains is by means of barges, which
will carry from 50,000 to C0.000 bush
els. One steamer will transport to
New Orleans trotn six to eight of
these barges, if a permanent channel
is established free from shoals and
It cau be readily figured out, if these
great water ways can be made prac
ticable to the extent sought, thus giv
ing the people their choice as to which
way they will transfer their products,
by rail or water. What a benefit it
it will be to the great agricultural re
gion of the United States.
But it will take money to accom
plish the desired result, aud what we
need and what we must have is as
sistance from Congress in the way of
suitable and adequate appropriations
to enable the work to be carried on.
One great object of this convention as
well as of conventions formerly held, is
to create public opinion in favor of the
scheme, present the feasibility aud
practicability of the same, to the peo
ple, petition and memoi ializa congress
and thus bring a pressure to bear
which they cannot ignore; for there
cau be no question as to the merits of
The proceedings of congress for
mauy years past bear us out in the
statement, that heretofore approba
tions made for similar improvements,
such as fixing harbors and streams
of a lesser magnitude, than those
considered by the St. Louis Conven
tion, have been confined almost en
tirely to the east and south; while the
gn'at Mississippi, Missouri and Ohio
rivers with all the vast resources
of their valleys have been neglected.
Congress has made large appropria
tions to aid private enttrprise in the
construction of railroads; but has as
yet done nothing to develop these
great water ways to the Gulf, which,
when improved, belong to no man or
corporation, but are the common prop
erty of the people and nation, on
which any one may sail his craft free
Judging by the interest now taken
in this question by the western states
and the necessities of the demand,
the object wo seek must be ultimately
attained. The demand for cheaper
transportation is imperative and our
congressmen cannot afford to ignore
Tho convention was a very large
one, there being about six hundred
The following delegates appointed
by the Governor from this state were
present, viz: Hon. J. Sterling Morton,
Hon. O. P. Mason, Gen. V. V. Vif
quain, John L. Carson Esq., II. T.
Clark. Esq , Col. C. S. Chase and the
write. Mr. II. T. Clark and C. C.
Housel Esq. represented the Board of
Trade of Omaha, ami other Boards of
Trade were represented. Judge Ma
son was chairman f the delegation.
I cannot close this communication
without referring to the admirable
treatment St. Louis gave the members
of the convention: they were enter
tained by all the theatres of the city
free of charge; McCulloch. the great
tragedian, appeared in the play of
"Virginius" also "Spartacus" at the
Grand Opera House, and Wednesday
evening a vocal and instrumental en
tertainment was given at the Chamber
of Commerce, and on Friday afternoon
after adjournment, an excursion was
taken down the River about twelve
mile 3, barges towed by a steamer be
ing used for the purpose.

While the doors were closed, but af

Mr. Bayard offered the following:

his duties as president pro tern.
Agreed to unanimously.
Mr. Davis, resuming the chair tem

which it has pleased the senate to pass

A most excellent feature has been
added to the new B. & M. depot at
Lincoln, due iu the generous, far see
ing design of General Manager Touza

scheme for the welfare of the em

two with papers and magazines;

and kept open until 10 o'clock p. m.
When once started and become a
place of general resort it will be a
wonder how it was done without so
long. After Vice President Touzalin
leaves for Boston it will remain a
lasting monument to his excellent ad

wisdom and tlllciency. It will re

Ed. Herald: Mr friends have
been telling that Otto Mutz, Demo
cratic candidate for Conntv Superin
tendent of public Instruction, said,
upon hearing of the death of Garfield,
"It is no difference, he is only a Cauip
bellite preacher." I am convinced
that he never said it, and will say
that I never heard him speak of the
lamented President save in sympathy.
I hope my friends will not use it in
the campaign against him.
Respectfully, A. L. Root.

any unfair means in elections. A few
idle words, if said, do not

Mr. Hates must feel that there is a
little of the irony of fate in the fact
that the man whom he removed from
office in the interest of a purified civil
eerviee is now, as President, compelled
to investigate the worst frauds known
in the history of the Government, com

An Opinion tf His Character and
Course front an Independent Democrat
The Cincinnati Enquirer of Friday
morning, Oct. 28, editorially says:
' Whatever else may be said of Pres
ident Arthur by his friends or enemies
all must agree that he is an able, prac
tical politician, with a knowledge of
partisan and party methods, and an
experience iu political management
that will be of great value to him in
bis administrative dunes at Washing
ton. We know of no public man in
the United States who at this time
stands in less need of advice than Mr.
Arthur; of no man whose proper
course is more dearly marked nut by
the logic of events, and of u man who
is more likely to assert himself.
The presidency of Mr. Arthur is not
agreeable to the Enquirer because he
is not a Democrat; it is not agreeable
to a large portion of the Republican
party, because he is not a "half-breed";
But his opposition to Democracy does
not preclude us from taking a fair
view of his course, or from scanning
without prejudice the demands of the
"half-breeds" that he shall divest him
self of his stal wartism and abandon
his Stalwart friends.
Mr. Arthur i3 no longer to be looked
upon as a New Y-irk politician and

dent, oniy lit to turn Hi official crank
to the music already set at the capi
tal, lie has assumed the most impor
tant dignity in the government and
displayed the qualification to sustain
it. He lifts been on trial for four
months and has not "once lost his
head". The ordeal commenced when
Piesident G tr ield was shot, on the
2d of July. Then Mr. Arthur was
known as a politician attached 10 a
faction ; a man who had been nomin
ated for vice president under circum
stances not ll.ittering to him. and who,
since the accession to the office, had
discarded the dignities of Ins place
and gone to Albany to do service for
a factional candidate for Senator.
Not much was expected of him. Many
newspapers of both 'parties counted
his probable promotion to the Execu
tive chair as one ' of the chief calami
ties to follow the work of the assassin.
There was an overspreading preju
dice against him, which was strength
ened, though not reasonably, by tht
declaration of tho murderer, to the
effect that he shot Garfield in order
that Arthur might become President.
The bearing of Mi. Arthur during
the time President Garfield's life hung
by a thread surprised many and chal
lenged the admiration of all. It did
not surprise those who knew the Vice
President intimately. Mr Arthur
justified the expectation of his friends
and never i or a moment departed from
the path of propriety. His gentle, but
unostentatious solicitude for the life
of the President, the becoming way in
which he placed in the background
and out of sight his personal interest
in the issue between life and death,
stamped him as a man of warm heart
and generous impulses, and demon
strated his discretion and self-possession.
The conduct of the President before
and since, hi: inauguration has satis
fied the country that he is a man of
judgment aud force; that he is equal
to the duties of his high office, and
may be trusted to select his own ad
visers. This is the ge:.eral opinion,
but it cannot be the opinion of those
Kepublican editors, and leaders who
demand that he shall kick out of his
counsels the able and distinguished
public men with whom he has been
intimate during his whole political
life and accept in their place those
who have been uncompromising in
their enmity to him, until the exig
encies of public patronage have made
compromise the only protection
against political disappearance. Is
treachery one of the component parts
of a good president? Why should
President Ar;hur discard Conkling
and accept .Sherman as an adviser?
Mr. Conkling is vain, arrogant and
disagreeable to most men, 1 ut he 13
not so to Artl.ur; and to all men he is
an able statesman, and no man can
sustain a charge of dishonesty against
him. His record for probity is better
than Sherman's and his practices in
politics have certainly been no more
pernicious than Sherman's. How
could a President with enough self
respect to fit liini for the duties of
Uoad Supervisor prefer a man who
placed insult upon him as Sherman
did in expelling him from the New
York Custom House V John Sherman

Why should the President scratch

They would feel .is if the citizens took
some interest in affairs, and besides

difficult problem of passing each other
on the same track ; the result was a
deadly embrace of the two engines
which were somewhat the worse for it,
