Toe Beatrice Express has merged
the Courier into one with itself, and
now holds the fort. Jiro. Urown is
a first class newspaper man and

success. His paper is ne of the
best in the state.
A cheering instance of the old
theory that "murder will out" is ex
emplified in the case oi the arrest of
a party for burning the Boyd Pack
ing House in Omaha some two years
ago. It seems Mr. Boyd Las had a
detective oa the track every since
and now thinks he has his man.
Chascellok Fairfield of Lincoln
lectured in that city last Fridaj'
eTeDing on the subject "IfVork and
Wages" and was followed the next
eTening by Mrs. Dinsmoor of Omaha
on 4.he same subject. Both parti 5
drew full houses. The point in con
troversy was really woman's work
and wages and the efTect which the
ballot would have upon it, Mrs. Dins
moor arguing of course strongly in
favor of the ballot as the great lever
in righting the wage question for
woman, and Chancellor Fairfield tak
ing the opposite side.
It does seem to us that the intent,
the arowed open intent, to kill the
President should be such evidence
of the guilt of Guiteau or any other
man that little evidence would be
needed to establish that. The only
question to be considered is the one
of 6anity. and the general opinion is
that a man sane enough to plan and
execute a murder for his own ag
grandizement is sane enough to
hang for it. The Jury should have
no doubts on this point. Further
more if the openly avowed intent to
kill so high a public Oi!k-er is not
murder it should be made so as soon
as Congress meets.
The Coming Board of Trade Banquet.
A meeting of the committees of the
boJrl of trade to arrange for the ban
quet, was held Saturday and resulted
in calling out a large number of the
Board. The invitation com nit tee re
ported about one hundred and fifty
names of parties from other portions
of the state as the list to be invited.
The question of extending invitations
to prominent county and city officials
was finally decided in the negative, as
room being limited, and other invita
tions in the city being confined strict
ly to the board of trade, it would give
rise to endless dissatisfaction. The
list of invitations from abroad include
prominent railroad men, state officials,
president's of the boards of trade of
different citiea, leading newsapr
men, &c. Arrangements for defray
ing the expenses of the affair brought
forth immediate Tesponse to the ex
tent of over S190 with good prospects
ef raising all that may be needed.

JTHAT "RUIIAMAU " CORRESPON
DENT OF THE liLOUE'DEM
OCRAT THINKS ABOUT
Other Opinions Concerning Cranks.
Washington, D. C, November 34
The trial of Guiteau is a spectacle
that no one of any public Bpirit or in
terest fails to attend, at least once, and
curiosity alone, bo matter how mor
bid and reprehensible, leads many to
the dingy and ill-smelling chamber to
get a look at that most eontemptinle
wretch.' A glance at the man con
vinces one of his qualifications for the
gallows, and by bis outrageots con
duct natuial disgust deepens until
nothing could arouse a spark of sym
pathy for him. There probably never
was a criminal so universally execra
ted, and who each succeeding day adds
to the general weight of obloquy by
his clumsy antics.
Through the grace of a legal friend
who took me I had a seat in full view
of the prisoner, and for two hours
could watch that most repulsive coun
tenance. The bustling and .quick
little step with which he patters into
the court room, the breezy and non
chalant manner in which lie presents
Ids hands to be unfetteivd, and the
intent and important air with which
he spreads out his morning papers, but
add to the unfavorable impression of
his evil and wicked countenance. It
would disgust any legitimate actor to
see this mountebank roll his eyes, as
sume the maniac glare and deepen the
perpendicular furrow in his brow.
The auiienee that gathers daily in
the City Hall is, as a rule, a rather
seedy and rusty looking assemblage,
and all through the compact rows of
faces are many that approach in gen
eral tvpe the so-called lunatic him
self. At the left of the judge's bench
are a few rows of chairs reserved for
the distinguished and fortunate peo
ple, who enter from the Marshal's
office and are seated at this peint of
vantage. Mrs. Blaine was an occu
pant one morning, and had not Guit
eau been cased in his triple-mtanted
brass, he would have quailed before
the severe, level gaze she turned upon
him. Not a smile hovered near her
mouth at nil the siick-tongued talk of
the prisoner, and only the irrepressi
ble shade of disgust broke tee stolid
composure of her countenance. About
evury clergyman in the District has
attended the court, and in the curiosi
ties of crime and the annals of wick
edness there cannot be. anything so
full of teachings as the history that is
being developed of this headlong ca
reer of vanity.
The loyalty wiili which his brother
and sister stav bv him is the one beau
tiful feature of the casp. Mrs. Sco-
ville's plump, elderly face, with its
crown of wavy gray hair, commands
respect from every side, and in the
fresh bloom and color of her counte-
nance-there is only the long profile of
the nese that bears the least resem
blance to Guiteau's ugly face. Sitting
there with a poke bonnet of black felt
on her head and a black centered bro-
cha shawl wrapped around her shoul
ders, she is a picture ef middle aged
dignity cemforting to look upon. Her
voice and look seem to quiet him more
than the Judge or the bailiffs, when
he sets to snappins and ftnailing at
the speakers. It is a fine sense of hen
or and a boundless charity that puts
Mr. Scovillo to defending such an la-
crrate. and though he strains his con
science and exerts himself to the ut
most to cast the faint shadow of in
sanity over his client, there is no
ring of conviction in his tones, and in
heart he cannot think any better of
the wretch than the rest of the world
dees. Ruhamah in Globe Democrat,
The etat has nothing to do with the
moral responsibility of criminal
cranks m devising ways and means
to protect itself from them. If it
does itself no good by punishing or
executing them, it clearly should re
frain from doing it. But if it should
appear that the punishment or one
crank will deter others from assailing
society, there is sufficient justifica
tion for the punishment. We ar not
called upon to split hairs upon the
subject of moral responsibility, but to
estimate the wisdom of inflicting pun
ishmant. In desiring to extend the
principle of individual rights to the
farthest practical limits, we have
overdone the matter and suffered ae
coiety to bo visited with injustice,
In acquitting criminals en account of
emotional or semi-insanity if the
term bo allowable we have certainly
multiplied the number of cranks. AVe
have extended the privilege of mur
dering. The acquittal of state assas
sins in England led to the establish
ment of the principle that if the per
petrator was sane enough to under
stand the consequences of his act, he
was sane enough to have them visited
Under the theory that moral irre
sponsibility renders a man unpunisha
ble, society has no protection against
cranks. It places them where they
are just sane enough to keep out of asy
lums, and net sane enough to be pun
ished. There should be bo such stand
ing ground. If the asylums do not ab
sorb them, the prisons or the g-dlows
should. Make one or the other the al
ternative in all doubtful cases in
volving murder. Globe-Democrat.
Spectators at The Trial.
Washington, D.C Post. Nov. 23.
The attendance at the district crim
inal court yesterday was the most
fashionable and select since the as
sassin Guiteau was put on trial tor
lis life. More than half the audience
were ladies, tne majority or mem ar
rayed in purple and velvet. Promi
nent among the spectators w ere Mrs.
Secretarv Blaine and several of her in
timate friends. The wife of the mur
dered preaidents's foremost adviser
wore a sad expression, and not eyen
the most ludicrous saying of the as
sassm could provoke a smue on ner
face. Chief Justice Prince, of New
Mexico, and his fair bride were given
seats within the bar enclosure. The
,ev. Mr. Paxton, the Rev. Dr. Sunder
land, and other white necktied gentle
men repk'e?i?4 the theologians.
while the theatrical profession was
present in the person of Florence and
several handsome and magnificently
attired actresses now on the boards at
Washington theatres Florence wa
seated near the government table; he
studied the prisoner with close sru-
tiny, and sorrowfully examined the
bullet taken from the president s body,
banded him by his friend, tlu-district
attorney. Mr. A. S. Solomons, and
other well known Washington resi
dents were in court in company with
their ladles. Col. John A. J:yce was
in the front rank, acting as escort to a
bevy of Georgetown bauties. The at
tendance of insanity experts was un
usually large, embracing parties sum
mened by both parties.

Temperance and Religion.
Every church member should make
temperance a part of his daily religion.
The bottle is the deadliest foe to
Christ in our churches and our com
munities. A friend of Christ mwst be
the ememy of the bottle. More souls
are ruined by the intoxicating cup
than by any single vice or error on the
globe. Every professed Christian who
gives his example to the drinking
usages is a partner in 'the tremendous
havoc which those evil customs pro
duce. "If any man will come after me,"
said the Divine Master, "let him cfcnjr
himself." And the great apostle only
clenched this glorious precept, when
he said, "It is good not to drink wine
whereby my brother stumbleth, or is
offended, or is made weak." On this
immutable rock of self-denial stands
tke temperance reform. There the
divine founder of Christianity placed
it. With Christianity it is linked;
with Christianity it will stand or per
ish. We do not hesitate to close this
rief paper with the declaration that
with the triumph and prevalence of
Christian self denial in the church
is bound up the only hope of
the triumph and prevalence of
pure Chris'ianity, in our world. T. L.
The time for temperance men to be
true is when the timid among them
prophesy disaster because the enemy
is held. Never sanction a wrong by
legal enactment. Never become a
special partner with rumsellers. Do
your utmost; and if you fall, fall with
your arms in your hands and your
face toward your foe. When you rise
you will not have to turn round to be
gin the eonflict. N. Y. Christian Ad
vocate. Whea Bad
No safer rule for the guidance of
mankind has ever been furnished,
than this suggestion by Burke, "When
bad men conspire, good men must
comline." Whisky, billingsgate, de
ception, subterfuge aa.l strategy are
the weapons of the conspirators. They
stek only to perpetuate paying busi
ness. These veracious hhylocks de
mand that nsh and blood; bone, mus
cle and sinew ; peace and happiness;

to fill their coffers witk pitiful dollars
They seek to confer no blessing upon
humanity. Sordid gain is their sole
ambition, Bad men have conspired
for gain. Good men must combine

The Ballot will Blet out Intemperance.
A. B. Richmond, in the preface to
his book "Intemperance the Great
Source of Crime," indulges in the fol
lowing sensible remarks:
"It has been ray object, as far as
possible, 10 present me subject in a
manner somewhat new, to travel out

as a great remedial agent; ocknowl-
edge oven the great forqe of the 'tufts
ef grass' of public opinion. Yet when
the boy remains obdurate and will not
come down from the tree, I have an
abiding faith in the virtue of stones.
"If good, reverend men could preach
the license system out of existeuce, J
would be Tery glad that they should
do so. if the prayers of Christian
neon and women could extinguish tne
fires of the distilleries or smother the
still worm, I would be glad that it
were so. But, admitting the truth
stated in the table or yksop, that 'the
gods help thoso that help themselves,
and that it was the shoulder of the
teamster applied to the wtieel of his
cart that moved the load rom out the
mud of the highway, I believe tliat it
will require the force of the whole peo
ple, mn and women, applied at the
ballot-box, to effectually blot out of
existence the great curse of the coun
try, the laws that license and permit
the sale of alcohol as a beverage.

In the following remarkable state
ment. William J. Coughlin of Somer
ville, Mass., says: "In the fall of 1876
I was taken with a violent bleed
ing of the lungs followed by a se
vere cough. I was so weak at one
time that I could not leave my bed.
In the summer of 1877 I was admitted
to the City Hospital. While there the
doctors said I hud a hole in my left
lung as big as a half dollar. I expend
ed over a hundred dollars in doctors
and medicines. I gave up hope, but a
friend told me of DR. HALL'S BAL
SAM FOR THE LUNGS. I got a
bottle to satisfy him, when to my sur
prise and gratification, I commenced
to feel better, and to-day feel in better
spirits than I have the past three years.
I write this hoping that every one
afflicted with Diseased Lung3 will be
induced to take Dr. WM. HALL'S

Is succesain, beaidea the counsels f several
others. They gave nie but little encourage
