The Grand Island Times seems con
siderably worried over the new paper,
the Anti-monopolist. Saint Michael
will probably realize that there is such
a thing as the union of profession and
practice, and that his masquerading
as an anti-monopolist is too ethereal
for Nebraska farmers, who are devel
oping unusual shrewdness in knowing
their real friends.
The millenium does not seem to be
very near at band. The reform of
our civil service, to be effectual, must
-divorce from politics, those functions
of the government which are purely
of a business nature, which should be
exercised in a purely business way, in
the interests of the whole people, and
not, in any een6e, for partisan purpo
ses ; .but the party which is in, at any
given moment of our history, could
Bot"see it in that light' and so the
ideal government remains far remov
ed from view.
Why the Difference:
To mankind in general, one of the
most satisfactory attributes of the
Deity is that he is no. respecter of
persons. To resemble Deity in any
of his attributes is certainly commen
dable in mankind. If men were judg
ed of by their fellows, not according
to their surroundings and trappings,
but according to their real character,
what a very different world this would
be, and how many of the race would
be hunting among the poor and lowly
for the true hero and heart-rnler?
Then, too, how many who occupy a
nominal eminence among men would
be debased ?
An ordinary man, yonr casual ac
quaintance, perhaps, is charged with
stealing a horse worth $50. A poor
man he may be, whose family (lack
ing his support), may come to want ;
his temptation may have been very
great, and his opportunity to do an
1 legal act too enticing for bis weak
will. The proof being reasonably
good, your $50 thief is generally sent
to the penitentiary, on a verdict of
his peers.
How does it happen that perhapB
the same jury, on testimony more
strong, would return a verdict of "not
guilty" in favor of a man who had
stolen his thousands of dollars, and
who reveled in bis ill-gotten money?
One goes back to his family, min
gles with mankind, is free to go and
come, wears good clothes, smokes
fine-scented cigars, and, while ho
knows he is a thief, consoles himself
with the Devil's doctrine that every
man has his price ; that all will steal if
they have a chance, and that so long
as you are not convicted and puuished
by the authorities it is all right
t The other, the $50 thief, takes sad
leave of his family; goes with the
sheriff to the State's prison ; is there
confined with other thieves, swind
lers and murderers; is kept at hard
labor, under close guard; lives on
coarse fare, and is lost to old friends,
to family and home, while within his
breast rankles the thought of injustice
as compared with the condition of the
greater thief.
If the scales of justice were more
evenly balanced humanity would be
nearer divinity, as less respecters of
Why did not Van Wyck, tbat emi

It may not, as our esteemed con
temporary remarks, "take a very long
while," but it did require nearly four
years for Mr. Valentine to discover
what was needed and then only be
cause it became a distinctive issue in
the campaign. Van Wyck has intro
duced a bill which requires not only
the Union Pacific, but other land
grant roads to take out patents on
their lands. The Phonograph should
have informed itself. Schuyler Sun.
The Kearney Press of a recent date,
in referring to an article in the Omaha
Republican and the Kearney Era on
this subject says :
The publication of the articles above
given, will convince every unbiased
reader of the Press that both the edi
tors of the Republican and Era have
no regard for the truth. About 18
months ago the Press took up the
subject of the untaxed lands of the
U. P. Railroad Company and discuss
ed the question of this evasion ot
taxation, and a6ked Mr. Valentine
some pertinent questions upon the
subject. We sent him a marked copy
of the paper containing the article,
and know reasonably well tbat he re
ceived the paper and read its contents.
We sent him a paper, also, directed to
Shelton, Nebraska, a few days before
be delivered the address at our county
fair, and know tbat he received it and
that his attention was called to the
article on untaxed U. P. lands. In
said article we asked him to defiue
his position, in his address, on that
question. To make sure that he could
have no excuse in not doing so, we
requested Patrick Walsh to call his
attention to the article in the Press,
which he informed us he bad done.
Mr. Valentine delivered bis address,
and in it referred to the matter in a
sneering way, by speaking of the
howling of "certain blatherskite news
paper editors," and dismissed the
question of untaxed lands, by attack
ing the Reagin bill for the regulatiou
of inter-state commerce. No one
knows better than Fred Nye, or the
Rhone Brothers, that their statements,
as well as Valentine's, are false ; we
revert to the matter only to prove to
the people that no reliance can be
placed on the word of either of them,
wheu politics and the interest of the
U. P. road are under discussion. Val
entine has known for years that these
lands were untaxed and desired that
they, should remain untaxed to save
money to his owners, and when he
says that be never knew until last fall,
he states an unblushing falsehood.
Senator Van Wyck reported to
the senate his bill, agreed upon by the
committee on public lands, which pro
poses to compel railroad companies
to pay taxes on the land granted them
by the government. It provides that
lands for which companies are enti
tled to patents, on the payment of
the expense of surveying, and yet
refuse to take patents, shall within
one year after the time that the com
panies became entitled to patents, be
forfeited to the United States and
made a part of the public domain.
The Union, Central and Kansas Pa
cific are said to be the companies
principally affected by this measure,
the amount of land involved approxi
mating fifteen millions of acres, locat
ed in Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado,
Wyoming, Utah, Nevada and Cali
fornia. Gen. Thayer is making a tonr of
the State in his own interest, as a can
didate for U. S. Senator. Every once
in a while we 6ee a mention of him in
our exchanges, but, outside of a Grand
Island paper, no decided expression
in his favor. There is one thing be
coming in the General, and in marked
contrast with some other candidates
for that position, who see that it is
probably necessary to make profes
sion of anti-monopoly principles. We
have not noticed that the General is
masquerading as an anti-monopolist. 1
A plan is proposed to publish a list
of the parties now receiving p nsions
from Uncle Sam, with a view to show
ing up the fraudulent claims, and
seems to be quito favorably received.
The pension adepts at Washington, of
course, are opposing the scheme with
all the energy at their command, but
this fact seems to be a pretty good
argument in favor of the plan. There
has been so much hue and cry about
fraudulent pensions that it is time
something was done to prove or dis
prove the charges, and the publishing
plan is about as good a one for hunt
ing the supposed scallawaga up, as has
yet been proposed. Let their names
and the nature of their cases be pub
lished, say we, that the people may
read as they run. Norfolk Journal.
Of course such publication would be
opposed by pension frauds of all
kinds, but the true .ind worthy sol
diers who are entitled to more than
all they receive, will be doubly thank
ed for exposing the fraudulent pen
sioners. It is claimed that the state printing
contracts have been let this year at a
saving of about $10,000, which makes
it evident that the State Jonrual Com
pany didn't get much of the work to
do. The little talk and work for
"reform" during the last two years
have not been without their effect.
Now if that proposed state-capitol-half-a-million-or-less
can be cut down or scared off, and
the penitentiary and other perfuncto
ry job-work can be cut down to "the
lowest living rates" for lobbyists it
will be well for the tax-payers. Let
the good work proceed without let,
stay or hindrance. After awhile, it
may be, the public will not be a goose
to be plucked.
The House the other day passed
two appropriation bills, the agricul
tural, aud military academy. Mr.
Valentine, chairman of the agricul
tural committee reported the bill, and
at the proper time it was taken up and
discussed and passed by a vote of 218
to 1. This bill appropriates $406,820,
or $20,460 less than the bill of last
year. It is claimed that by the pro
visions of this bill much valuable in
formation and instruction will be
annually distributed to the agricul
turists of the United States. How
many farmers in Platte county have
ever received any of this distributed
information ?
Whenever Senator Van Wyck
moves to have ji rajroadjyiUipany
made amenable to law, the ogre that
runs the Omaha Republican rises and
makes some remark about "Nebras
ka's eminent demagogue in the sen
ate." The trouble with General Van
Wyck, in the eyes of the railroad
organs, is tbat he is voicing the will of
the people, understands their wants,
and has enough independence of
spirit to go in the direction they point.
This is the reason why every thought
of the General in the United States
senate gives Nye and Gere the politi
cal jim jams.
The largest cattle sale ever made in
America was concluded the other day
by the live-stock companies of Swan
Brothers, Swan & Frank and Swan &
Anthony, all of Wyoming. The
herds, including 87,000 head of cattle,
with the ranches, buildings and graz
ing privileges, were sold to a Scotch
capitalist for the sum of $2,550,000.
Mr. A. H. Swan retains an interest in
the new firm. Ten years ago A. F.
Swan and brother started in the cattle
business in Wyoming with about
$60,000 and now it is said are worth
about a million each.
Justice advocates the policy of
organizing a political party to hold
the balance of power, and throw to
one side or another just as the corpo
rations throw their influence, and thus
make all political parties live up to
their professions and serve the public
interests, just as the corporations in
the past have made both parties to a
greater or less extent serve monopoly
interests. If this lead is followed in
Nebraska, both the republicans and
democrats must select anti-monopoly
candidates if they hope to succeed.
If the railroad forces cannot secure
a well-known, outspoken, downright
agent of theirs as next U. S. Senator
from Nebraska (and it doesn't now
look as though they could), they will
in all probability select as candidates
men who have never taken a decided
public stand either way, and who can
be relied on to do their bidding,while
at the same time seeming to be with
the people. Any man occupying such
a position is devoid of good sense aud
political manhood, and will, soon or
later be discarded by the people.
Capt. A. C. Nutt, cashier of the
Pennsylvania state treasury, was shot
on the 23d inst., in his room in the
Jennings hotel atNorristowu, Pa., the
ball passing through his head and
killing him instantly, by N. L. Dukes,
a well known member of the Fayette
county bar and member elect ot the
state legislature. The trouble origi
nated by Dukes writing, as it ia
charged, some infamous letters to
Nutt. Dukes was arrested. The affair
created great excitement, but what
was in the letters is not known.
Van Wyck was so unmanageable
in the U. S. Senate (according to the
Omaha Republican) that he could not
be trusted by his fellow republicans
with the chairmanship of a committee,
and now tbat he has been so trusted,
the O. R. is not at all happy. Nye's
auguries come about as close to the
truth as bis alleged political facts;
aud his insolent attitude toward the
Senator is on a par with his wretched
attempts to dictate the policy of the
republican party in thiB state.

Jay Gould, in his testimony before
the committee of the New York State
Senate, investigating "corners," said
corners give the producers better
prices and make large markets. Spec
ulation benefits the home dealers,
brings money to the country, and
creates markets all over the world.
Mr. Gould said he had spent large
sums in aiding immigratiou. A panic
was caused, he said, when men lose
their balance, and rush to sell.

Washington society is astonished
at rumors current that within a few
nights a Justice of the Supreme Court
lost several thousand in a gaming
house, and ouly left the table when

standing in high stations as well as

which has carried so many men down
