The Mormon women in Utah have
been for a short time actively en
gaged in circulating and signing the

During the nine years of its life
the Journal has been crying out
against the remainiug "twin relic of
barbarism" iu Utah, and is glad to
note that that foul nest is about to
be renovated, the highest judicial
tribunal of the government having
decided that the law of Congress of
1SG2 is constitutional. Reynolds,
the young benedict with two fond
wives, who leut himself as a test of
the law, believing that the Supreme
Court of the United States would
declare on his side of the case, aud
take tho odium of disloyalty from
tho heads of polygamous Mormon
dom, finds himself a subject for fine
aud imprisonment. Petitions are
going up to the President for execu
tive clemency, seeing that Reynolds
is but a scapegoat bearing the sins of
There is just enough uncertainty
iu what may be dono to make tho
subject extremely interesting to
those Mormon gentlemen who have
been all along setting the law at de
fiance, and teaching others to do
likewise. And those individuals, in
this aud in foreign lauds, who have
been longing for the tiino when they
could live in Utah, unmolested in
their polygamous practices, will now
look around for some other avenue
of escape from "marital tyranny."
The practical questions raised by
tho decision of the Court will receive
the best attention of our statesmen,
aud it is to be hoped that the utmost
good-will compatible with the pub
lic good, will prevail in counsel and
dictate the policy to be pursued.
If all offenders wero punished,
there would not be prisons euough
to hold them, and besides, the' suff
ering thereby entailed upon inno
cent children would be so extremely
cruel, that this method can not be
entertained. To visit with the full
penalty of the law the "leaders'' who
have all along been the organizers
of lawlessness, the mainsprings of
the murders of "emigrants," and the
blatant demagogues who have
through many years defied the gov
ernment, would be just, but the
nation which neglected to hang
Jell. Davis, and which is trying hard
to forget the four years' war that
cost her so much treasure, so many
precious lives, and very nearly her
own existence, will perhaps hesitate
to strike the heads of the prophets
and apostles of Polygamy, who may
be regarded, if not hypocritical, as
nothing worse than self-deluded, re
ligious enthusiasts, with Turkish
households. It will not do for the
government to shut its eyes, as here
tofore. Polygamy must cease, but
some sort of humane provision
ought to be made for its victims.
In the House of Representatives
at Washington on the 15th the ways
and means committee reported back
the bill authorizing the secretary of
the treasury to issue in exchange
for lawful money United Stales cer
tificates of deposit of the denomina
tion $10, bearing interest at the rate
of three per cent., and convertible
at any time with accrued interest
into four per cent, bonds authorized
to be issued, and directs that the
money so received shall be applied
to the payment of 5:20 bonds, was
discussed at great length by mem
bers of the House with spirit and
will, and at the conclusion of the
debate, the bill, after being amend
ed, finally passed.
Senator Windham, at Washing
ton, has conceived a novel idea how
to solve the question of breaking up
the "solid South" and enabling
colored Republicans to vote. It
cousists iu encouraging colored
persons who are deprived there of
their constitutional rights to migrate
to such other States and Territories
as may desire to receive them, and
will protect them. In furtherance
of his idea he introduced iu the
senate the other day a resolution
that a committee of seven Senators
be charged with tho duty of inquir
ing into the practicability of promot
ing by all just methods such migra
tion. A terribly destructive fire oc
curred in New York city about 10
p. in., of the 14th, in a large building
on tho north side of Grand street,
extending from Broadway to Crosby
street, occupied by Howard, Sanger
& Co., and on the upper floor by
Naumberg, Kraus, Lauer & Co.,
clothing. The former lost $250,000
and the latter's stock is reported
worth $1,500,000, and as a total loss.
By the falling of a wall a number of
citizens and firemen were injured,
and several firemen reported killed.
S. D. Richards was tried on the
loth at Minden, Kearney county, on
the charge of murdering Peter An
derson, the Swede, on tho 9th of
December last. The jury returned
a verdict of murder in the first de
gree. He was sentenced to be hang
ed on thc2Gth of April next between
the hours of 10 a. in., and 4 p. m.
He was indicted but not tried for
the murder of the Harlson family.
Richards appeared perfectly indiff
erent. Sparks, of Gage has introduced
a bill in the State Legislature to
regulate freights and passenger fare
on railroads. It provides three
cents per mile passenger fare; five
cents per ton per mile on freight of
en tons 6ix miles; ten to twenty
miles, three cents per ton per mile;
twenty miles and over, two cents
per ton per mile. -The bill was read
the first time.
Mr. Trowbridge has introduced
a bill erecting what is known as tho
Pawnee Reservation lands into a
county to be called Nance. Wc ap
prove of the measure, and hope tho
bill will be enacted into a law, pro
vided there should be no conflict of
jurisdiction between the Pawnees,
State of Nebraska and United States.
From Yankton, D. T., under date
of the 15th "wc have a report direct
from Cheyenne agency that runners
from the hostile camps held a coun

they talked very independent, say
ing, "It makes their hearts bad to
see their friends here deprived of

to come in aud give up their guns

By this time the entire hostile camp
of not less than 2,500 Indians are on

After midnight Monday morn
ing the Occidental Hotel, a large
frame building at Omaha, was dis
covered on fire iu the rear part of,
the second and third stories. Thp
fire got such a start, and made such
rapid progress that the department
with its many mishaps failed to
check it, and the building burned
down, together with two other
adjoining frame buildings. It is
stated in the Bee thnt the hotel was
no doubt set on fire. There was no

Dr. Miller is sniffing the ru

that he will be speedilysmokcd out.
We commend the Dr. for the very

The part of wisdom would dictate
to the tax-payers of Nebraska that
as few $100,000 as possible be spent
in patching up an old capitol build
ing far away from the center, and
at one side of the State, especially
when there is a plain provision in
corporated into our new constitu
tion for the removal or relocating
the scat of government for the State
of Nebraska. That provision reads
as follows: "The scat o'f govern
ment of the 6tate shall not be re
moved or re-located without the
assent of a majority of the electors
of the state, voting thereupon at a
general election or election?, under;
such rules and regulations as to the
number of elections and manner of
voting, and the places to bo voted.
for, as may be prescribed bylaw;
Provided, The question of removal
may bo submitted at- such other
general elections as may be pro
vided by law." According to this"
provision of our fundamental law
it would appear great folly indeed
on the part of our legislators to
expend hundreds of thousands of
dollars of the tax-payers' money of
the State to bolster up old tumble
down capital buildings at Lincoln
or even to build new ones there
which at best will have to be aban
doned in a few years. Build the
new capitol at the new capital.
Don't make double expense. The
bill recently introduced iu the
House by Mr. Session? for the levy
and collection of $100,000 for erect
ing an addition to the present build
ing at Lincoln should bo so amended
as to incorporate into its provisions
the proposition of the removal to be
submitted to a vote of the people as
contemplated by the constitutional
provision. No one could reasona
bly expect that this amendment
would come from Mr. Sessions, but
wc hope some other member in the
interests of the tax-payers of the
State will have the independence to
take the proper action to bring this
question before tho people of the
State, in a just form, and save the
expenditure of a hundred thousand
dollars on a merely temporary scat

M. K. Turner, Esq., Dear Sir: I
send you recent copy of Semi
Weekly Tribune containing article
by Prof. Law on the much discussed
cattle disease. Would like to see it
in the Journal if you think it woith
while. Not so much because ot any
thing new in it, as because, on such
matters, Prof. L. is acknowledged
the best authority in this country,
and perhaps it is as satisfactory as
the matter can be made until a
thorough scientific examination is
made by experienced veterinary
surgeons on the ground. The Prai
rie Farmer of Chicago advises that
farmers here club together and raise
means for such examination. This
docs not seem to mc practicable;
at least I have no idea it will be
done, but as the trouble is general
over the State, I do think the mat
ter of sufficient importance lor our
State legislature to look after. The
expense of having a thorough ex
amination by one or more reliable
experts would be comparatively
small, and might save many thous
ands of dollars to the Stale. I no
tice our Senator is chairman of the
live stock interests of the Stale and
hope he may be induced to give this
matter the attention its importance
