Washington, Jan. 16. A joint re
publican caucus of senators and rep
resentatives was held to-night to
appoint a congressional campaign
committee. More than 125 members
of congress were present. Senator
Edmunds presided. Representative
Miller, of Pennsylvania, was chosen
secretary. In taking the chair Sena
tor Edmunds said the outlook for the
republican party for 1884 was at this
early period of the campaign better
than at any time for the past fifteen
years. He had every reason to be
lieve that the party would be success
ful if it only exercised wisdom in
selecting a candidate. The following
resolutions were offered by Senator
Resolved, That it is the 6ense of this
meeting that the republican congres
sional campaign committee be imme
diately organized, consisting of one
member from each state and territory
having republican representatives, for
the preparation and circulation of
documents concerning the subjects
pending in congress, and political in
formation, and for the execution of
such other campaign work as may be
agreed npon by that committee and
the republican national committee.
Hesolved, That we express our sym
pathy and will extend our "hearty
co-operation in all practical ways to
all southern republicans struggling
to oxcrcise the vital and fundamental
right of free suffrage in popular elec
tions ; and no less do we pledge our
friendship and assistance to all citi
zens of southern states who have not
been republicans but who are man
fully contending against the proscrip
tion or murder of voters and favor
freedom in politics and honest polit
ical methods for the public education
of the whole people, and we recom
mend the prompt and cordial onion
of republicans with all such patriotic
citizens in combined efforts to redeem
thoir state from the fatal domination
of false ideas and dishonoring prac
tices. These resolutions were warmly ap
plauded by the caucus when read, and
after being favorably commented
upon by Senators Hoar, Logan and
Hawley and Representatives Hiscock
and Mayo, were unanimously adopt
ed. The members of the committee
agreed upon by republican states
were: California, Senator Miller;
Florida, H. Bisbee; Illinois, G. R.
Davis; Iowa, Senator Allison ; Kan
sas, Thos. Ryan ; Massachusetts, Sen
ator Hoar ; Minnesota, W. D. Wash

leave to present the name for a mem
ber of the committee at some future
time. They requested the names of
committeemen as soon as possible.

thorized to call a meeting next Mon

A. Bold Forgery.
A slick fellow who registered at the
City Hotel as G. W. Moore, had been
for a day or two hanging abont the
office of Smith & Blaco, north of the
track, representing that bo was a
stock man looking for a location to go
into business, and by some means he
made himself familiar with the check
book of the firm, from which it sub
sequently appeared, he had extracted
three blank checks. These checks
were made for the firm and had the
firm name printed in the body of the
check and across one end. About the
dinner hour on Tuesday he pre3ented
at the bank of A. Castctter, a check,
filled op and apparently signed by
Smith & Blaco, for $160.00. Mr. Cas
tetter asked him some questions, and
he answered them fairly, representing
that he had sold Smith & Blaco some
hogs to be delivered at Fremont, and
he received cash for the check? and de
parted. But something caused a sus
picion that all was not right, and Mr.
Castetter immediately dispatched a
messenger over to Smith & Blaco'a
office to see if the check was properly
iesued, when it was found that no
6ucb check bad been issued by them.
Sheriff Gross was at once notified, and
with assistants was searching for the
slick forger within thirty minutes
after he got the money, but so far no
trace of him has been found.
The forgery was a most perfect one,
even to the number on the check, this
being the next number following that
of the last check really issued by the
firm, and the signature was so perfect
that on comparison with the real sig
nature the fraud could not be detect
ed by one familiar with the firm sig
nature. It was a bold move, and by
its Very boldness proved successful.
Mr. Castetter promptly offered $100
reward for bis apprehension, but there
is little hope that he will be captured.
As a matter of fact Nebraska will
be entitled to ten delegates in the next
republican national convention which
will be held at Chicago in June. The
manner of electing these ten delegates
will be a matter of some interest to
the republicans of the state, and some
good may result from a discussion of
the subject, as it is understood that
the republican state central committee
must decide the manner of their elec
tion at their next meeting. We think
these delegates should be chosen as
near as possible by the voice of the
people they represent as four will be
chosen at large from the state, and six
from the congressional districts, each
district being entitled to two dele-
gftet, independent of tbow choten

The business portion of the United
States have been considerably inter
ested to know just what our govern
ment would finally conclude to do
with reference to those countries
which have persistently refused to
allow the entrance through their
ports of 'American products. While
considering Anthony's resolution the
other day in the senate, Logan made
some remarks that strike us as being in
full accord with the sentiment of the
people of this country :
"Logan stated that for nearly four
years our meats had been excluded
from France and Germany and yet in
the examination by experts of all
meats of different countries ours
proved the best. He did not wish to
counsel any course inconsistent with
a jrupur hub oi puiiujr, uui uih uwu
judgment was that after the failure in
four years' diplomacy to set the mat
ter right the only way to meet the
difficulty was by excluding from the
United States certain importations
coming hither from the foreign coun
tries in question, and thus give those
countries to understand that while
certain sound products of this coun
try are excluded from their ports
certain products of theirs will not bo
permitted to enter our ports. He
knew some people did not believe in
retaliatory legislation but as far as he
was concerned he believed in it when
necessary and believed the time
would come when the United States
could say to France and Germany
that their present course in the exclu
sion of American products would
necessitate a corresponding course in
their exclusion from the ports of the
He thought that four years ought
to be enough to produce the convic
tion in those countries that wo are
able to send them sound moat, and
asked why wo should hesitate to say
to those nations, while they refuse to
take from us meats perfectly sound,
we shall refuse to take from them
adulterated wines and liquors which
do more harm than unsoond meats.
Degredation and vice go hand in
hand with ignorance. We will not
say that all eyil comes from ignor
ance, but we think it true that a large
proportion of the vice so prevalent
has an embryo cherished and rooted
in minds devoid of intelligence. The
unrestrained passions cause men to
perform deeds which would make a
sober man blnsh. Therefore some
thing must come to that passionate
man which will enable him to over
come all evil tendencies of his nature,
and the cause having been removed,
the many crimes of to-day must cease
to be. Ask and you will find that
many of the unfortunate prisoners
cannot even read. Some, of course,
are men of intelligence, but many
more need only to become enlighten
ed in mind, and justice would have
no cause to hsndcuff them. And why
will education remove evil doings?
We think the secret lies in the fact
that the educated man is more com
plete in nature, and consequently
more capable of controlling his pas
sions; he weighs his actions more
carefully, and shuns the evil not only
because of the attendant punishment,
but because he recognizes a better and
more noble way. The ignorant rush
on, and ere they are aware, evil comes
to them and they are admonished too
late, for they have sold their liberty.
We hope the endeavors now being
put forth among the young to bring
them np to a higher plane of intelli
gence, will diminish crime, and in the
rising generation we believe a higher
type of man will appear. Let parents
be careful that their children grow up
to be worthy the highest rank of in
telligence and morality among the
nations of the earth, so that our land
may prosper and the flower be per
fected whose germ was planted on
Plymouth Rock. Buffalo Co. Beacon.

Washington, Jan. 11. The sub
committee of the house, committee
on public lands, to whom was re
ferred the question of order in the
land grant forfeiture bills to be con
sidered, reported that the considera
tion will be begun immediately. The
following is the order submitted:
Texas Pacific, Oregon Central, Or
tanagan and State Line, California
and Oregon, Oregon and California,
Northern Pacific, Atlantic and Pacific,
New Orleans, Baton Rouge and

Atlantic and Gulf Central, Mobile
and Girard, Selma, Rome and Dalton,
Vicksburg Shreveport and Texas,
Sioux City and St. Paul, Chicago St.
Paul and Mnneapolis, Chicago St.
Paul and Omaha, and Wisconsin Cen
tral. The report was adopted by the
full committee, and the clerk directed
to give a copy to the press signed by
Chairmau Cobb. The Texas Pacific
grant will be considered first. It
was originally made to the Texas
Pacific railroad, and is now claimed
by the Southern Pacific. The land
amouuts to 14,000,000 acres, and is
estimated to be worth $40,000,000.
In the honse Mr. Hitt introduced a
bill to place sugar and molasses ou
the free list. Mr. Wood, to admit
free of duty wood pulp, lumber, wood
and salt; also, to reduce to 35 per
cent, the ad valorem duty on colored
and bleached cotton'good. Mr.Clay,
for the repeal of the civil service act.
Mr. Pusey, authorizing a bridge across
the Missouri river between Council
Bluffs and Omaha. Mr. Winans, to
regulate transportation rales on rail
roads. Mr. Money, to regulate the
compensation of railroads for trans
portation. Mr. Morgan, to abolish
postage on newspapers.
The signal officers on Mount
Washington have only a fortnightly
mail. They go down after it upon
boards, that run on the railroad track,
at the rate of a mile a minute, and
they climb back on snow shoes. There
is considerable interest attaching to
this elevated portion of Uncle
Samuel's domain. "It is 6226 feet
above the level of the ocean. Its
summit much of the time is concealed
from view among the clouds. The
sides are remarkably steep. The
pinnacle is in (he form of a cone, and

The board or agriculture held an
all-day session on the 16th at Lincoln,

Mb. Van Wyck, from the com
mittee on improvement of the
Mississippi river, submitted a joint
resolution appropriating $1,000,000 to
continue the improvements begun on
that river. After debate, it was
amended, so as to give it the form of
a bill, which was passed.
Mr. Anthony's resolution instruct
ing the committoe ou foreign re
lations to inquire into the expediency
of legislation to enable the executive
to protect American interests against
those of governments discriminating
against healthful meats from the
United States, was taken up.
Mr. Van Wyck moved to amend
by adding "excepting governments
whose manufactured goods or pro
ducts were previously restrained or
prohibited free access to our ports."
During Van Wyck's explanation
the morning hour expired, and the
matter went over.
Senator Van Wyck ha3 certainly
been and is continuing to be one of
the most useful men in congress.
Vigilant, energetic and fearloss, know
ing what the people desire, he strives
for that regardless of the thwarting
officials that stand between the peo
ple's wish and its execution. If the
country does not get more informa
tion than it has had on land-grant
steals, railroad extortions and dis
criminations, and tariff inequalities,
it will not be Senator Van Wyck's

Mr. Hoar's bill for counting the
electoral vote was again passed in the
senate without debate; also a bill re

Instead of paying another cent for the
extinction of a debt not due, public
opinion demands that congress cut
down taxes at least one hundred mil
lions a year."
