While Sioux City and Yankton
are building Jupj a profitable com
merce ou the business of Northern
Nebraska and Southern Dakota, a
region naturally tributary to Oma
ha, the merchants, manufacturers
and capitalists of Omaha exhibit the
most stolid indifference to the ex
tension of railway communication
to the north and northwest. This
very short-signtea policy nas es
tranged the people of Northern Ne
braska from Omaha. They very
justly charge the slow development

Dennis Kearney, the agitator,
got into trouble the other day at
Santa Anna,CaI.,through slanderous
attacks upon prominent citizens.
He refused to give his authority for
the charges he had preferred, aud
one of the citizen, getting angry at
what seemed to be and unjustifiable
outrage upon part of Kearney, hit
him aud kept hitting him until he
was thoroughly used up aud demor
alized. The Oliver-Cameron case was
concluded by counsel at Washing

Geutlcman' of the jury : Take tliis

jury then retired and in a short time
returned a verdict iu favor of Cam
eron. Without mouey, fear, favor
or affection, it being a free country,
we voluutcer the opinion that this
case is the only one ou record that

An exciting debate took place iu

Shall the Judge be Named by
As you have always expressed a
willingness to publish matter of
general interest, the writer asks the
privilege of using your space to
make a few comments on'the selec
tion of judicial officers. Much 1ms
beeu said and written for and
against an elective judiciary.
Rufus Choate, and many other emi
nent men have argued that the cuds
of justice would be best subserved
by appointing judges, aud remove
them from the contaminating in
fluences of party politics.
For my part I believe the people
at the ballot box should select the
judges who decide their controver
sies. But selecting men to such
high positions through the machina
tions of party politicians is quite
another thing. Some of the older
States have instituted a movement
in the right direction by permitting
the bar to make such selections to
place before electors for their suf
frages, and the experiment has
worked well. In choosing a judge
or other judicial officer, the object
. 4 1 1 1
is iu get a man quiiiineci m legal
ability and integrity for the place
and who are more capable of judg
ing as to the legal attainments of a
person proposed than lawyers?
They represent the properties, liber
ties and lives of our fellow men hi
our Courts orjustice and have a di
rect interest iu not only having an
able judge decide their clients'
causes according to law, and one
whose integrity is beyond question.
A judge is supposed to be placed
in his office for the benefit of tho peo
ple, and when he is the creature of
a few politicians he, like other offi
cers, must feel that he is under ob
ligations to those who brought him
out, and may consider that he has
enemies to punish who opposed him
or labored for some other man in
The above is only a very trifle to
what might be said against the poli
cy of making tho selection of our
judiciary a political affair. If any
of your renders can'show why it is
better to choose such officers in a
party caucus, than to have the bar
select them, I would like to hear

ESctl cr be Right than le Sena
tor Senator Kiinmel has endeavored
to answer the inquiries concerning
his vote ou the capitol appropriation
bill. Wejiriutcd his document last
wtekjso that our readers might know
just what justification is attempted
by one of those who voted contrary
to the wishes of his constituents.
With those representatives and
senators whose constituents really
favor the permanent location of the
capital at Lincoln we have no par
ticular quarrel on this question
there is none, except the stringency
of the times, that has compelled the
utmost economy in private afiairs,
and should teach the tax-levying,
and tax-expending power that the
people's will should be listened, to
rather than the cry of the job-leech,
who, iu these times reckons so much
expenditure for actual labor aud
material, so much for "'grease" in
in the shape of money or official
influence to "engineer" the appro
priation through committees and
legislatures and governors, so much
for stcalg, and so much for houest
profits, which is not thought of
'till the last, and is put iu only be
cause it will swell the figures. The
people have interests that their
agents should heed. That is the one
great need of every government
men in ollice aud in power who will
execute the people's will. It is too
true that America has what may be
called an office-seeking class, whose
main motive is to make money, or
seek position as a stepping stone to
higher position. In their conduct
of an office, whenever any matter
comes up for decision, the question
with them is, "Ilow much is there
in it for me?" or "How will my ac
tion affect my chances for the
? the answer in either case being
determined not by any considera
tion of public iuterests, but wholly
and eutirely by private, personal,
and merely selfish purposes. The
man who would rather be right
than be legislator or governor, or
congressman or senator or presi
dent, is occasionally elected to
office, but it is done through some
