The B. & M. II R. Co. had a certaj i
amount of grading to do. They h-t it,
as is usual, and under the same con
ditions and as all contracts are let, to
one James Stephenson. He advertised
for men. a number of men, some three
hundred. He put to work 75 or 100.
he agreed to pay them 31.25 per day.
He attempted so settle at 81.10 per
day. W6 are now proposing to give
the statement of the laborers them
selves, as we have heard it.
These men rebelled at this; as they
had a perfect right to. No thinking
man claims that men should work for
inadequate wages, nor yet that a con
tractor can causelessly violate his
agreements. The men on the dump
then struck against Stevenson's injus
tice as they suppose and believe. In
that they have had the sympathy of
all the better and free thinking class
No serious disturbance occurred at
this time however, more than some
hearty cussing of "Modoc Jim."
The B. & M. R. R. Co. finding their
work was not progressing and could
not be done under Stevenson, waited
on him and asked what he intended to
do about his contract. S. admitted he
could uot fill it at that time, and ad
mitted the right of the company to go
ahead and do the work if needed with
their own employes. The company

In pursuance of this decision, and in
consequence thereof a parade took
place on Wednesday the 8th. iu which
the men were led near the dump on
which the B. & M. men wer working,
guarded by a few regular police of
Omaha k.nd some extras from Plaits
mouth, called for and put there by
Mayor Boyd because of threatened in

than 81.75 per day. On this, Wednes
day, some portion of this parade said
not to be of the union, or "labuiing

men off, tried to throw the scrapers
into the river, demanded and tore the
tin stars oft of the extra special police
and pounded and abused shamefully
at least three of the men set there by
lawful authority to guard and protect
the men at work. The men fled, the
police abandoned their rights, the of
ficers of the B. & M. left the grounds.
The assemblage on Wednesday num
bered from 3000 to 4000 people, and
peaceable resistance seemed a farce.
The labor union did not prevent this
outrage, they did not protest. Under
such conoitions the Mayor of Omaha,
the Sheriff of Douglas Co., and many
citizens called on the Governor far
aid. The Governor called out the Mi
litia and by the request and advice of
other prominent and good citizens of
state asked the aid of U.S. treopsalso:

no property has since been destroyed
no men have been driven off. One old

truction ef property came from the
followers of the so-called "strikers."
Without discussing the propriety of
strikes at this time, or their effects,
which would take space ley :nl the
limits of this article, we desire to
draw attention to one or two Tacts.
At least a dozen of the best farmers
in Cass Co. are wanting to sell their
farms, not men who are failures, who
cannot make mney at farming, but of
the best and thriftiest farmers we
have. Every man we asked gave as a
reason for selling, the scarcity and un
reliability of help.
They cannot get the labor they need
The annoyance has become so great
they prefer to sell and rush to ills
tbey know not of, rather than endure
those of the past few years.
Farm labor, supposed te be some
sort of criterion of the value of man
ual labor, is about 820 per mouth, and
board, of course. Twenty five dollars
is demanded in many instances and
farmers say they cannot pay that.
Not long since t legislature of Ne
braska passed a law allowing road
supervisors 81.50 per day for their ser
vices, and to-day few will qualify at
that. It is not surprising that an ig
norant man liice Stevenson, or a great
corporation, should think 81.25 or
$1.50 per day enough for a working
man when the great state of Nebraska
assumed that 81.50 was enough for
the performance of an important duty.
Better laws and better adjustment
of labor is needed, more brains and
less gab at the front. Some study of
cause and effect and a little knowledge
of political economy might-be used.

must be, in the neighborhood of 5,000
men in Omaha, owning property, keep

in preserving law and order. Why
are such men so indifferent to the pres
ervation of law aud order, if there
was danger of destruction of property.
Why not combine to protect each oth
er before calling for the troops and
outside aid. Is it indifference or
cowardice, that usually leaves the im
pression that the disorderly forces of a
cily outnumber its law abiding citizens.

Senator Van Wvck. in his soecch on
the "Special Deposit" survey system,
gets off the following, which "Oscar"
might 'o well to study and profit by;
likewise some of the modl reformers
may read the same with care:
"Like the postoffice, the land depart
ment produced this monstrosity of vil
lainy under a remarkably pure admin
istration. If more time had been spent
m detecting thefts and robbers, and
less in decimal fractions, the differen
tial calculus, and the orbits of the hea
venly bodies, the treasury would not
have suffered so much detriment
These frauds in the interior depart
ment are particularly painful, for at
that time it was enjoying the distinc
tion of possessing all there was aes
thetic in the paradise of civil seivice.
There the lily and sunflower of Amer
ican politics were scattering their
brightest hues and most fragrant per
fumes. Daily and monthly reports were
regularly made, the annual expendi
ture of a few thousands was swelling
into millions, still the sesthetic chief
and his pinks of civil service reform
must not be disturbed in their consid
eration of abstractions and theories."

"What does Dr. Miller mean by pitch
ing into jur Cass County fellows so?
Come, Doctor, no innuendoes. If you
know something, out with it! What is
the matter, for heaven's sake?"
This is a melancholy murmur over
our efforts to help the junior senator
from our State to reform the survey
ing service of the country. The Her
ald at Plattsmouth will oblige us by
keeping as quiet as it conveniently can
for the present. It nefcd not get nerv
ous about the few innocent questions
we have been aiking about the Platts--nioutli
methods of distributing the
public funds. By the way, will Orlan
do win? Do you really think, he will
build that biick block in Avoca? If
not, why not Omah Herald.

she banished most effectually the icy

from her minions instead tbe sunny

mere trace of the sharper breath of the
season. Verily, our newly wedded
couples owe the old dame a thank of

The meeting of last Sabbath after
noon, in Temperance hall, was address
ed by Rev. S. P. Wilson. He is a most
effective speaker; impressive and con
vincing iu his arguments, and, besides
great fluency of speech, exhibits an
earnestness and depth of feeling in the
minds of his hearers, that ho means
just what he says. He heartily en
dorses giving women the ballot. We
regret exceedingly there was not a
larger audience before him. On next

lies cold and still in Moyamenaing
prison. The man has once been a he
ro. Men had marched to death and
victory under his gallant leadership.
To-day, the sun, streaming at uncer
tain intervals through the grated pris
on windows, fell upon the blotched
and bloated features of a common
drunkard. This man, who had fought
side by side with Sherman on the great
march to the sea, died alone in a pris
on cell. Rum had done an awful work,
Wednesday night he was arrested at
Third and Spruce streets for lying
drunk on the pavement. He was sent
to Moyamensing prison for twenty
four hours by Magistrate List, but be
fore he had served out his time be was
found dead in his cell. Gen. Wright's
career was briliant from the begin
ning. In 1848 he become connected as
civil engineer with the Pennsylvania
Railroad company, and did good . ser
vice with the surveying party that
ran the experimental lines over tbe
Alleghany mountains. In 1849 he
went over to the Turtle Creek divis
ion of the road, with headquarters at
Greensburg. Leaving the employ 6f
the company in 1854, he was appoint
ed revision engineer of the Honduras
tnteroceanic railroad survey, which
wasmade by John C. Trautvine. in 1857.
After remaining with Trautvine un
til the surveys were completed, he
traveled about the world until the
breaking out of the war of the rebel
lion, during a part of which he served
as chief of the engineering corps of
the Army of the Potomac, with the
rank of brigadier general. He was a
particular friend of Gen. Sherman,
who admired his dash and flue execu
tive abilities. In Sherman's march to
the sea Gen. Wright had charge of a
largo force of men detailed for pinneer
duty, and was often brought into close
contact with guerrillas and portions
of the confederate armies. With tht
Army of the Potomac he had special
charge of the construction and protec
tion of burned bridges, a work for
which, by reason of his dashing brave
ry, he was especially well fitted. At
the close of the war he built several
largo bridges and various public works.
He had charge of the plans and con
struction of the Kansas aud Missouri
bridges at Leavenworth, and the
bridge at Atchison, Kan. Five years
ago he was a candidate for chief en
gineer and surveyor of the city, but
was defeated by Samuel G. Smedley.
He was connected with the DeLesseps
party which visited the isthmus of
Panama two years ago, being chosen
by Count De Lesseps as the American
engineer of the expedition. When the
party returned to New York it was
announced that Gen. Wright would
make the principal address at a ban
quet given in honor of the canal
scheme. When the time came for the
address Gen. -Wright was not to be
found. In the course of an hour word
was brought to the banquet hall that
thespeaker of the eveninz washelp'ess
from intoxication, Since that time he
naa remained in obscurity, simking
lower and lower by reason of his ap
petite for strong drink, until the end
of the tragedy was reached Thursday
night. Gen. Wright was unmarried
He has relatives in Adams county and
at Wayne station, on tbe Pennsylvania
railroad. He will be buried by the
engineering profession. Chicago
