Congressman E. K. Valentine

The letter of acceptance of C. A.
Arthur for Vice-President on the
republican ticket was received too
late to appear in this week's
Joubkal. The letter shows that its
author is a well-informed, inde

minded andfearless man, capable of
filling the position assigned him in
We learn from the Lincoln Globe
that the Nebraska penitentiary con
tains 261 convicts, 180 of whom are
from this state, and the remainder
from Wyoming," New Mexico and
a few United States prisoners. Mr.
Stout, the contractor, has a large
number of these men at work mak
ing brick. A tailoring establish
ment and harness shop are also car
ried on. There are only four worn-
I n convicts in tho building.
A letter signed "J. K.':, dated at
Darlington, Wis., and directed to,
and published in the Ghicago Trib
une, briugs a direct charge against
Gen. Hancock, nominee for presi
dent, which, if true, is very damag
ing. The substance of it is that
"after the retreat of McClellan's
army from Malvern Hill to Harri
son's Landing, McClellan was order
ed by the president to remove his
army to Alexandria ; that McClellan
was disposed to rebel, and while it
was under consideration, whether or
not to obey the order, a proposition
emanating from headquarters was
submitted to the officers to unite
the two armies union and rebel
march to Washington, depose the
government, make Jeff. Davis presi
dent and close the war." The writer
goes on to state that the proposition
met with no serious opposition until
it struck the colonels, and then the
fire began to fly and the curses were
so loud and deep that the couspiri
tors became alarmed, and the project
subsided. "J. K." says he never
entertained a doubt about Hancock's
being one of the couspiritors, and
refers to Judge Cobb of the Nebras
ka Supreme Court as knowing of
the matter, being at the time com
mander of a regiment in Hancock's
So far, we have given space to this
charge as a matter of newspaper
talk, one of the incidents of the
campaign. Whether wholly or par
tially true, or altogether false aud
without foundation, a short time,
perhaps, will decide. Wo were
about to pass it by as one of those
miscelianeous missiles which are
hurled upon general principles into
the ranks of political opponents, un
til we came upon a paragraph in a
Lincoln paper stating that General
Cobb, when approached upon the
subject, replied that he had nothing
to say, unless requested by Gen.
Hancock, when he should, though
reluctantly, toll what he knew
In any case this, from Judge Cobb,
who is regarded as a man of strict
integrity, is a singular statement, if
Gen. Hancock is not in some way
involved in the affair mentioned.
Let us at least hope in the meantime
that tho Democratic nominee for
president is not so weak a man as
The Republican Stato Central
Committee are called to meet at
Lincoln on the 28th. Wo suppose
that at that meeting the committee
will determine whether they should
include in their call for nominations
that of a U. S. senator to bo present
ed to the peoplo as a representative
of Republican principles hj "ne" coin
ing campaign, -course whatever
they Go' or fail to do in the matter,
will not debar the convention itself
from exercising its proper functions.
We consider, however, that they
have as much right to omit governor
as senator in their call, and we seo
no sufficient reason why tho consti
tutional provision and the statute
law can not be carried'out in letter
and spirit. There certainly is no
reason why unless some one seeks
the place contrary to tho public
E. D. Mansfield, the ablest hand
at figures in Ohio, writes the Cin
cinnati Gazette after this fashion :
"I think that the republicans will
have a clear majority of the next
house of representatives, and., the
senate will be a tie. One hundred
and eighty-five electoral votes -which
Hayes had is a majority.
Garfield's minimum vote, 1 thluk,
will be 187, and his maximum 247,
and his probable, I think, will be
222. I give no details, but put this
on record. I know that the green-,,
backers claim a great vote; but 1
don't know that this vote will have
a material effect on the election.
They claim to have the power to
elect part of both tickets in two or
threo states, but I think they are en
It is said that Senator Blaine has
promised to make two speeches in
Nebraska during the campaign.
We suggest that Columbus should
be one of the places to be honored
by the great senator. We can give
him here, in the heart of Nebras
ka, such a greeting as would befit
hiB talents as an orator, and tally
with the estimation in which he is
their first choice for president. If
it oughfto be necessary to add to
the above reasons we may say that
the facilities for reaching Columbus
from all parts of the State are ex
cellent, and thousands upon thou
sands would avail themselves of the
opportunity to be present.
Crime appears to reign supreme
in Omaha. The bed room of John
Jankowski, a toy merchant, was
entered the other night and his
vest, pants, gold watch and chain
and $295 in cash were carried off.

never heard the thief, and he thinks
he must have been drugged. His
wife heard a noise but did not fully

of Omaha, that for the first time
since the organization of the city
government every claim accruing
against tho city has been, during the
fiscal year ending the first of July,

Ax accident occurred last week on
the Republican valley branch of the
B. & M. railway, about two miles
west of Neponee, by the passenger
train, running into a culvert about
ten feet deep, tho bridge having been
carried away by high water. The
engine was pitched into the ditch,
killing engineer Mike Eagan and
fireman John Best. The engineer
leaves a wife and family in Omaha.
He formerly resided at Plattsmouth.
The fireman was a citizen of Hast

while bathing recently in the Arkan

an iron pot containing $3,000 in gold
and silver. A letter concealed in a

yellow with age, and bears date
April 13, 1860, and says: "I stole
this money in Chicago from a far

Some big frauds were disclosed
last week in New York before the
Wallace senatorial committee in
regard to the manner in which the
naturalization business was conduct
ed in that city. Many foreigners
are naturalized before being in the
country six months. The proof
showed that tbe number of persons
registered on fraudulent certificates
in 1876 was 10,000, and in J878 it was
reduced to 3,200. Of the latter only
about 1,200 voted.

A large force of colored men
wero set to work last week on the
new packing house in Eist Atch

soon raised of about 150 strong,
from tho other packing house and
outsiders, who attacked the negroes
and drove them away, claiming that
neither negroes nor white men
should work for less than $1 50 a
day. lu the meantime all work
in tho brick yards and ou the new
packing house is suspended.
The question is being discussed at
St. Petersburg about the propriety
of prohibiting the export of wheat
on account of short crops. It is
said that the deficiency is greatest
in south Russia, but extends to all
parts of tho country. If Russia
prohibits grain exports Germany
doubtless will suffer materially, her
rye crop being short, and she will bn
obliged to become a purchaser from
America, despite the tariff.
