The Omaha Herald had a good ar

that National Banks are'not altogeth

The Decatur Herald, which has
just started in on its journalistic ca

bridge and railroad at tftat place.
We hope its predictions may be ver

arbitrary and uncalled for advice and
interference in the private business

THE Gl'lTCAUTRIAL ;lri
And He I Convicted.
A dispatch last night, about eight
o'clock, announced that the Guiteau
case had gone to the Jury, who prompt
ly brought in a verdict of murder in
the first degree. The whole American
nation will breathe easier now. aud
bless that jury for a good deed done.
Washington, Jan. 25. At a. 15 p.
m. Judge Cox delivered bis charge to
the jury, and they retired.
A rumor that the jury had agreed
quickly spread frem one to another,
and the excited Crowds surged back in
to the court room to anxiously await
what all seemed to expect, a verdict of
Judge Cox soon afterward! took his
seat, and the crier called order, and
the jury at 5:35 filed slowly into their
seats. Every f ound was hashed, save
the voice of the clerk as h propound
ed to the foreman the usual inquuy.
Clear and distinct Came the reply
"What is your verdict, guilty, or not
Y lth equal distinctness caiae the re
ply, "GUILTY AS INDICTED."
The pent-up feelings of the crowd
found expression in uproarous demon
strations of applause and approval.
"Order!" "Order!" shouted the bail
iffs. Scoville and counsel for the prosecu
tion were simultaneously upon their
feet. Scoville attempted to address
the court, but the district attorney
shouted, "Wait till we have the ver
dict complete, and in due foim of
Order was at length restored, and
the clerk, addressing the jury, said,
"Your foteman says 'guilt? as indict

We print this too, Mr. Journal, "not
that we eare," as the lawyers alwavs
say, to gel our editor's name in the pa

and "Jim" and "Dick" every o .e. In

Herald will tell you just w" at Mr.
MacMurphy did do on these t o occa
sions: He went over to Iowa to s. a pair
of "them steers" we heard Sol j Chase
left over there around Glenwu ed, and
as Fry might want to do soruj Green
back plowing here in the S.ing, he
thought he would go and loo at 'em.
Boss Wheeler over there told iin thej

The AntiOiorinon Forces Rising.
Kalamazoo. Mich, pulpits last Sun
day generally presented the Mormon
question, and a petition to Congress
for effective action against polygamy
is receiving hundreds of signatures.
The Chicago Tribune has columns
of responses from all parts - of the
country showing a strong sympathy
witli the movement and indicating the
holding of large mass meetings every
where. Chicago held an - Immense mass
meeting last Monday to ventilate the
subject. Hon. Schuyler Colfax ad
dressed the meeting, also John Went
worth, Dr. Leverick Johnson and Wil
liam Bross. An executive committee
of six were appointed to promote the
objects of the meeting.
The following telegram was receiv
ed from A. G. Campbell, congressional
delegate from Utah contesting the
seat with Cannon:
Washington, D. C. Your dispatch
received. I am glad public sentiment
in the West is aroused to such magni
tude to the evils of polygamy and
Mormon church rule in Utah. In my
judgment there is but one way effect
ually to suppress these twin wrongs
the one no greater than the other and
that is to pass the bill now pending in
Congress for the creation of a legisla
tive council to govern Utah in place
of the present polygamous Legislature.

THE TKIBUNE, 1882.
President Garfield's real friends do
not strive to blacken his memory.
They do not steal private dispatches
nor lie about the mode of getting
them. They do not try, at this late
day, to make the world think that the
great and good President, whose death
all civilized peoples mourned, was
really a fool or a man of puttv.
THE TRIBUNE, 1873.
James A. Garfield, of Ohio, had ten
shares; he never paid a dollar; receiv
ed $U29 which after the investigation
began he was anxious to hare consid
ered as a loan from Oakes Ames to
himself. These men betrayed the
trust of the people, deceived their
constituents, and by their evasions
and falsehoods confessed the transac
tions to be disgraceful.
General Garfield's -real friends" do
not "strive to blacken his memory"
now, nor did they strive to blacken
his character ten years rgo. Inter
THE FUTURE OF THE B. & M. It. R.
What The Extension to DcaTer means.
The B. & M. It. It. are about to
make extensive improvements in
Omaha to accomodate their travel
west next spring. Read the follow
ing: A Bee reporter called on. Superin
tendent Holdrege' yesterday and was
shown by him the map and plans of
their contemplated improvements and
also obtained the following points
The IS. & M. desires to secure room
to handle its freight business and ex
tend its yards so as to be ample both
for present and luture purposes. They
also want room enough to allow the
C. B. & Q. to handle their freight here
instead of on the other side of the riv
tr, if they wish to. The B. & M. will
sooii be iu Denver and their Colorado
business which will be from the first
very large, is to be handled in Omaha.
Of course, this could not be done even
with good houses aud yards if these
are not accessible to the Omaha busi
ness men, and Supt. Holdrege says the
object of the Union Pacific is evident
ly to fill up Jackson street with tracks
and prevent its being passable for
teams to and from their freight depot.
The U. P. is also determined to keep
them out of the hollow formed by the
South Omaha creek entirely If possi
ble and they already have it filled
wiih tracks from Jones street to their
"The point is," said the superintend
dent, "we want some facilities left for
reaching our depot, and they seem de
termined to take even th-U away if
they can. We have bought all the
property on one side of Jackson street,
and they don't own a lot on either
side, unless it may be one or two that
are sunk in the ponds at the foot of
the hill. Now they want to go to
work aud fill up the street with tracks
which will give them also both sides
of the McCormick elevators. They
have tracks on one side now and yet
virtually refuse to receive grain that
comes through that elevator."
What the outcome will be is of
course uncertain, but it hardly seems
possible that as matters stand they
will pass the ordinance, which was
read twice, and then referred to the
committee on streets and grades.
The enterprise of the Burlington &
Missouri people means the changing
of the river front from a wet, un
healthy and useless locality to one of
the busiest and most valuable por
tions of the city and there is no doubt
but it will lead to similar moves on
the part of other loads. The North
western has but small depot' grounds,
the Missouri Pacific will soon be in
aud want yaid room, and. the prst
thing Omaha knows the whole river
bottom will Ve occupied by -yards, as
the flats are at Kansas City.

T Pore 'water.
Those who have heard Joha B.
Gougti apostrophize a goblet of water
lifting it on high in his glowing
imagery of the good, the pure,
and true, will not fail to enjoy the fol
lowing beautiful thoughts of Mr. A.
E. Ballard: .
"God never gave us the intoxicants.
None of them are of His making." He
gives us the water. He m.ngles the
pure gases together and produces it.
Then He pours it Into the rock-basins
of the sea for preservation while He
purifies it. Then He divides it into
pieces of vapor so small as to defy the
vision and lifts them with the gentle
arms of the winds into the firmamentJ
When every particle is examined
through the clear glass of the sunlight,
purifying them with its glory, He puts
them into the pools of the clouds,
where he tounds them into drops and
pours them down upon the earth in
showers for the drinking of its flora.
Some of these particles lie folds
around with the cold, forming them
into beautiful snow crystals and laying
them down upou the tops of the
mountains, where He sends the sun to
kiss them into a wakei iug of warmth
and life. Then they go down that
mountain-side in the sportiveness of
gladdened childhood; they leap in cas
cades; they rush over the rocks foam
ing with laughter; they hide among
the bushes; they reappear in the
streamlets; they murmur to the fern
'fringes of their margins; they find the
hidden paths of nature and go dowu
secretly to the mountain's foot, where
they bubble their joy in springs, or
seclude themselves in the cool, damp
cellars of the earth which He has
masoned into reservoirs till the wells
go down to them and bring them up
for the cooling of thirst aBd the sus
tenance of life.
"For human disorders He medicates
it with the salts and the sulphur and
magnesia and the iron.
"For luxuries He puts it to the
mouths of tho roots, and pours it
through the sap-veins into the fruit of
the grape and the berry and tho peach
and all the myriad forms of life.
"For our sense of beauty He causes
it to diamond the dew-drop, and sap
phire the rain-fall, and flash iu the
streamlet, and sparkle in the cascade,
and whiten in the waterfall, and color
in the rivers, and emerald in the ocean
shimmering everywhere in blushes
of silvery gladness over the sun-smiles
of the Creator.

to that of "B. & M. R. R. Band."
About one-half the present band are

was found that the change of name
was desired by a strong majority. A
notification to Mr. Holdrege of tho
proposed change brought a kindly let
in return saying he would be pleased
thereat, and would aid and assist them
to attain greater proficiency in the fu

We've got the nobbiest Dictionary
holder iu the country. It is made of
flexible wire in such a manner , that
when the dictionary is opened the
holder forms a small table holding the

portable rack which can be picked up
by the handles and moved from place to
place. At the sides are also places for
magazines and papers. So you can
have your late reading matter all in one
spot, ready for you, and a dictionary
at hand to understand it.

paper. These premiums will be dis
tributed among their subscribers in

ments. Address remittances and orders for

ing Co., Omaha Nebraska.
On the question of Anti-monopoly
The Bee hopes to be equal to the
emergency as the foremost cham
pion of the anti-monopoly cause. Hav
ing battled for this cause during more
than ten years The Bee has establish
ed its title to popular confidence as an
earnest and unflinching advocate of
the rights of the producer. In cham
pioning the common interests of the
people against corporate encroach
ment The Bee has never advocated
the confiscation or wanton destruction
of railway property or laws that would
bankrupt these corporations, but it in
sists that railways should deal fairly
by all their patrons, that they shall not
confiscate the products of tho farmer
by extortionate tolls, and that they
shall aot evade their just burden of
taxation. The Bee has always been
a staunch exponent of republican
principles, and it will continue to bat
tle for these principles. Out it will net
sanction the dictatorship of Jay Gould
or any other railway manager in po
litical affairs through the instrumen
tality of the republican party.
