Sherman, why did you skip the Sun
editorials, the Finch matter, the email
pox, and all ctlier points made in last
week paper, and take up the little un
important one about Geo. Smith? The
meaning of our article was plain, and
you know it well enongh. You wrote
a silly thing about supporting home
men for otlice. The same week, by
inference, you called Dr. Livingston a
liar, the Mayor a fool, and, by implica
tion, the Surveyor General a scamp,
and then preach to us about support
ing home citizens. Too thin, old man !
"Josey" Connor, you are the only
man who insulted Thatcher's memory.
Why did you not notice the good
words we had to say for Thatcher in
last week's Herald, from his late
home paper? That would be honest,
that would be-neighborly. Your first
reticle was a coarse vulgar allusion to
matters that Mr. Thatcher told us
himself he would be glad to forget
and you are the man who renewed
them in the minds of this public, not
"little Johnny MacMurphy."
It is always the perquisite of a cow
ard to allude to the size of an opponent
physic-idly. Why did. you wait two
weeks to retort? Was it until your
wife would be away, in fear we might
answer in kind, and you could keep
the paper here? Or do you mean to
thi eaten tolill the editor of this paper
again? Go slow. Josev, go slow ; y:i

learned back there originally j As a
specimen we copy from the N. Y. San:
Syracuse, Jan. 31, -During the re
cent gathering of the Grand Army here
I was introduced to the father of a
middle-aged delegate, a hale old man
of some 70 or 77 years, who had come
down from the north to see what his
son was up to, as be said. I learned
that the old man had been a clerk of
some sort at Washington, in the Sen
ate, I think, while Silas Wright was
Senator away back in the days of Van
Buren's adninistration. The subject
was introduced by some stray com
ment on the current fashion of com
paring Arthur with Van Buifn. The
old man laughed at this.
"I can't see any points of re&emblance
at all," he said, "unless it be thaf. both
have good manners. There has been
fctich a succession of rough Westerners
in the White House that the moment
they get a man them who knows bow
to wear kid gloves and can enter a
room politely, they f;dl to searching
history for a parallel for him. But Van
Buren was a man of altogether differ
ent mould from Arthur. In their rela
tions to politics they are not alike. Mr.
Van Buren was something more than
a politician, something larger than a
mere heir of Jackson's pobcy and man
tle. He had made a big reputation as
Governor of. New York, as Senator,
and as Vice-President befoiehe went
to the White House. He sto-vl on a
foundation of his own making. He
was a reserved and cautious man; his
enemies used to call him Old Non
committal, as we call a man a strad
dler nowadays. But be knew bow to
I andle men well, and kept faction out
of the party. Wlieu his term expired
he got the unanimous renominalion of
his party, and would have been elected
but for the bank troubles and the bu
siness panic. Do you think Arthur
will get the unanimous renomination
of his party iu 18S4? I guess not."
By the way, a strong 'non-committal"
man who knew his own business,
and who learned to treat people with
courtesy, even when he did not agree
with them, would be called "on the
fence" here, we suppose, eh, Mr. Journal?

that if any exposed peisons took the

at the culmination of the incubation

Feb. 4th; court assembled. Guiteau

vi'le given ali chance to argue his
theory of insanity, but out to bulldose
the court. Coikhill calls for the sen
tence. Judge Cox announces his idea
of justice. ' '
You have been convicted of a'ciiiiie
so. terrible iu its circumstances and so
far-reaching in its results, that, it has
drawn upon you the horror of . the
whole world and the execration of
your countrymen.- The excitement
produced by such an offence made it
no easy task to secure you a fair and
inpartial trial, but you have had the
power of the United States treasury
and of the government in your service
to protect your person from violence
and to procure evidence from all parts
of the country." Yon have had as fair
and impartial a jury as ever assembled
ih a court of justice. 'You have been
defended by counsel with a zeal vnd
devotion that merits the highest ecora
ium, and I certainly have done my
best to a fair presentation of your de
fense. Notwithstanding all this, you
have been found guilty. It would be
a comfort to many people if the ver
dict of the jury had established the
fact that your act was that of an irres
ponsible man. It would have left the
people under belief thnt the crime ofpo
litical assassination wasentirely foreign
to the constitution and construction
of our country. ' This result has de
nied them that comfort. The country
will accept it as a fact that crime can
be commuted, and the court will have
to deal with it with the highest pen
alty known to the criminal code to
serve as an example to others. Your
caraer has been so extraordinary that
the people might well at times have
doubted your sanity, but we cannot
but believe that when the crime was
committed you thoroughly understood
the nature of the crime and its con
sequence Guiteau "I was acting as
God's man." and that you had moral
sense and conscience enough to recog
nize the moral iniquity of such an act.
Prisoner "That's a matter of ques
tion." Your own testimony shows
that you recoiled with horror from it.
You say that you proved against it.
You say that you thought it might be
prevented. This shows that your con
science warned you against it, but by
the wretched sophistry of your own
mind you worked yourself up against
the protest of your own conscience.
"What motive could have induced you
to that act must be a matter of mere
conjecture. .. Probably men will think
that some fanaticism oi morbid desire
for self exaltation was the real inspi
ration for the act." Your own testi
mony seems to controvert the theories
of your counsel.. They have maintain
ed and thought, I honestly , believe,
that you weie driven against your will
by an Insane impulse. The testimony
showed that you deliberately resolved
to do it and that the deliberate and
disquised will was some impulse. This
may seem insauity to some people,
but the law leoks upon it U3 wilful
crime. ; You will have an opportunity
of having any errors I may have com

that it was possible to comply with
the requirements of all sections of the
A circular will shortly be sent out
for the purpose of collecting informa
tion as to the Reeds of every part of
the state. .
The following resolution was offer
ed by Mr. Allen: , .
Iieselced, That the grain shippers of
Nebraska do urge upon the farmers of
the state the importance of sowing
better varieties of seed wheat, and
recommend that more attention ,be
given to raising the standard of
Nebraska milling grades by careful
selection of seed wheat of the varieties
adapted to this purpose. The hard
wheat being better for milling, and
bringing a higher price in the market,
we do recommend the following vari
eties, as iu our judgment and experi
ence they are among the best and most
valuable for our soil, and adapted to
the diversity of soil found in Nebras

Edito -Herald: The action of
the. regents in dispensing with the
services of ; Professors Woodbury,

demned and approved, but perhaps

dent submits "this letter' 'to 'the ap
proval of yourself and readers.
For sometime past, the Faculty 4f
the University Iiave, ia Lheirr various
meetings been 4uh'armoniou3,"for the
reason that the educational views oi
the so calledBroadGuagers.or inother
words, broad minded-Professors, are
net readily assimilated to the ideas
f the Narrow .Gruage, or as the dis
Unction b as been made also, the Nar
row minded Professors. The out
come of this lack of harmony, 13 the
dismissal of the Broad Guage Pro
lessors. " ' .
. The Honorable "Regents, with
the exception of Regent Gannett,
who was sick and Regent Powers,
who was abs'ent" from" that meeting,
after an investigation, that seem to
some perople, a partial one, notified
the Professors, whose names have
been mentioned above,that their servi
oes in the. University could.be dis
pensed with, at the close of the year;
all this, without allowing the Pro
fessors a hearing, iu which to defend
themselves. Be it said to his honor,
that Regent Holmes voted nay. ,
We understand that charges, con
sisting of " immorality, inecfJUencyV
and irreligiou were proposed
against them, cither specifically or
gencially. Wo will lak, up the
charges systematically: 1
1st, As regards immorality. It is
alleged that the iutlueucu ! one of
the disuiis-scd Piotcbiori, over the
students has not bete 11 conducive to
good mot ais. Let us say that any
person who does what auyoue wants
him lo dr., when he, himself, know
that it is wioug, is iu a fair "way to
become ;ie of thoe plastic individ
uals, who can be moulded iu anyway
to suit the fashion.
Indeed, the influence . of the
Professor is a very desirable oae, and
it would be well, were all the Profes
sors simifar to him. But piogressive
ideas do not find fertile soic, general
ly, among the Chancellor' b. leaue '
2d, in relation to inefficiency. t In
efficiency ? you say. That is the
charge, but it is an absurd one. and
was very probably used as -a subter
fuge, as you will perhaps thmk wlieu
you read the facts. i'lie professor
against whom thii chai-ge is orougbt,
has in his elemenWrv Wass of'trer
man, between sixty au. seventy stu
dents. . , 1
"lie is asked to bear;ery hiuJentin
an hour, ami oecnuse every studeub
does uot pass in bis efamitiatiwu, the
Professor is charged with inefficiency.
In every class," as th school teachers
who read this article may know, there
are some pupils who are lazy, will not
study, aud spend their timo generally
in having fun. So it is with this class.
Would It not be doing an injuslice.'notr
only to the student himself, but to the
class, to allow him, if he were incapa
ble, to pursue his study? Would it not
be to his detriment? This is probably
the view the Professor takes o.f the
case. Ail efore, tiie charge was prefer
red against only one Professor, while
there still remains in the Facmty the'
Professor of Chemistry, who is. known
to be very incompetent. ; He also is of
the same stripe as the Ch.mctJlor.
3d. As ivgards Religion. It is alleg
ed that these Professors force their
views Upon the students. It is false.
Are we retu in ng to the old age of per
secution, when a person in the minori
ty was beheaded for expressing a re
ligious opinion different from the ideas
held by the majority ? We hope not;
but it iliust be said that tfds acc;on of
the Regents looks bko it. The uay is
fast approaching when. man. tan be
free to announce his opinion, whether
it be for or against religion.. Professor
Chuich delivered a lecture one even
ing last eat iu Lincoln, which was
said to have been an excellent dis
course. The idea was expressed, as we
understand it, that a man may make
what use of the Sabbath he please?, in
so far as that use does not interfere
with his neighbors. Is this right or
wioug. or can we truly distinguish be
tween right and wrong?' Au expound
er ofK'hir h;i ;s ; "We should nor
to ie virtues or vices wb it 1 U. Bi
ble sas re virtues or vices, but what
the experience of mankind has piove.i
to le virtues or vices." Having thiib
determined what is right aud what i
rong, we should endeavor to conform
asneailyas possible to that distinc
tion. The Professors, who have been dis
missed, inaugurated this year what is
Known as the elective system, which
is the one now iu use in Harvard and
the leading colleges of this country and
Germany. The system consists in hav
ing bat two terms, or semesters, to the
year, and in allowing a student to
choose whatever he desires in addition
to the studies which come regularly in
The Regents, while they have dis
pensed with the services of the Pro
fessors, showed some consideration for
the welfare of the University, and pre
served the system which they intro
duced. Does it not seem strange that
the Professors should be discharged,
and their system continued? The life
having been taken from the Universi
ty, does It not seem best to you to get
rid of the fossils? Spectator.
At the request of a friend we pub
lish the above. It is oerhaps unneces
sary to say it does not agree altogether
with our view of the subject, except
the latter recommendation that an en
tire change in the faculty be made, at
the earliest moment, as the only salva
tion to the University. This the State
Press pretty nearly agree about. Ed.

jNt My Business. V - -
BY llKi. MARY T. LATUItAP.
A wealthy man in St. Louis was
as Red to aid in a series of Temperance
meetings, but he scornfully refused.
After being further pressed, he said:
. '.'Gentlemen, it is not my business."
A few days after, his wife and two
daughters were coming home in the
lightning express. In his grand car
riage,, with liveried attendants, he rode
to the depot, thinking of his' splendid
business, and planning for the mor
row. Hark! did some one say- "acci
dent?" There are twenty-flve rail
roads centering :h St. Louis, if there
has been an accident it is not likely it
has happened on the aud Mis
sissippi Railroad. Yet it troubles him.
'It is his business" now. The horses
are stopped on the instant, and upon
inquiring he finds that it has occurred
twenty-live. miles distant, on the
and Mississippi. He telegraphs to the
- "I will give you five hundred dollars
for an extra engine." The answer
flashes back, "No."
"I will give you one thousand dol
lars for an engine."
"A train with surgeons and nurses
has alieady gone forward, and we
nave no other."
With white face and anxious brow
the man paced the tloor to and fro.
That is his business now. Iu half an
hour, perhaps, which seeins to him
half a century, the train arrived. He
hurried towards it,:aud'in the tender
found the mangled and '. lifeless re
mains of his -wife and one of his
daughters.' Iii the car following lay
his daughter with her dainty ribs
crushed in, and her precious life ooz
ing slowly away. - H,

Who dares say of fhis tremendous
question, "It is not my business?"
"Be not drunk with wine wherein
is excess" is the text of a Temperance
sermon recently delivered in an Epis
copal pulpit, the stress of the argu
ment being laid upon the word trans
lated excess, which conveys, in the
Greek, the idea of utter and irremedi
able loss this loss being, according to
the eloquent divine, that of self-restraint,
which alone distinguishes men
The thought is a suggestive ouand
goes deeper into the foundations of
the curse than any of our remedial
measures." By so much as a man al
lows his baser sensual appetites to
dominate over his higher moral and
spiritual qualities, by just so much is
he deliberately losing the manhood
which is himself ; also, loosening the
bands of self-restraint in any direction,
is preparing the way for degradation
all along th. line, aud many a poor,
helpless drunkard, tottering on the
slippery edge of eternal ruin, commen
ced the easy descent, when those who
had the care of him gave the baby all
the candy he cried for.

I was taken with a violent bleed

time that I could not leave my bed.
In the summer of 187? I was admitted
to the City Hospital. While there the
doctors said I had 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

The Bee for 1882.
In order to extend the circulation of
the Wkekly Bee the publishers have
placed a larger number of valuable and
useful aiticles in their premium list
than was ever offered by any news
paper. These premiums will be dis
tributed among their 'subscribers in
the same impartial manner that char
acterized their premium distribution
last winter. The aggregate value of
these premiums is over $40,000. Among
Three threshing machims, $1,500.
Two pianos, $1,200.
Twenty-five sewing machines, $1,
500. Three gold watches,
and hundreds of other useful and val
A full list of premiums is published
in each number of the Weekly Bee.
Sample copies mailed free to any ad
dress. Subscription pi ice, Weekly $2.00
per year, six months $1.00.
Every person that remits prepay
ment for one year will be entitled to
one premium. No premium worth at
retail less than one dollar. All remit
tances most be in before March 1st, as
the award will be made on March 4th
without fail. Positively no postpone
ments. Address remittances and orders for
sample copies to The Omaha Publish
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 nil their patrons, that they shall not
confiscate the products of tho farmer
by extortionate tolls, and that they
shall not 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, but it will not
sanction the dictatorship of Jay Gould
or any other railway manager in po
litical affairs through the instrumen
tality of the republican party.
