The committee appointed by the
national republican committee to in
form James G. Blaine of hw nomina
tion as a candidate for president of
the United States, veiled Augusta,
Me., one day last week and gave Mr.
Blaine formal notice of his nomina
tion in quite a lengthy address pre
sented by Gen. Henderson. Mr.
Blaine made a brief and appropriate
reply to the address accepting the
nomination. Later tho committee
was tendered a reception at Portland.
"Like an armed warrier, like a
Plumbed Knight, James G. Blaine
marched down the halls of the
American congress and threw his
shining lance full and fair against the
brazen foreheads of the defamcrs of
his country and the maligners of his
honor. For the republican party to
desert this gallant leader now is as
though an army should desert their
general upon the field of battle."

Van Wyck introduced a resolu
tion the other day requesting the
judiciary committee to inquire
whether the Union or Pacific railroad
companies have become responsible
for a guarantee on any bonds other
than those specifically authorized by
congress or outstanding at the date of
the passage of the act making appro
priations for legislative, executive
and judicial expenses of the govern
ment for the year ending June 30,
1874, and if so, to what extent and
under actual or alleged authority;
also, whether any new 6tock has been
issued by either of said companies in
violation oCsaid act, which resolution
was laid over until June 17.

introducing Gen. Logan who ad
dressed the citizens in quite a lengthy
speech abounding with many patriot

among whom were Senators Plumb
and Harrison, Gen. Cutcheon, of
Michigan; Gen. N. Goff, of West
Virginia; Hon. Peltiboue, of Tenn.,
and Gen. T. M. Baync, of Pennsyl
vania. An old street car driver in the West
Division had been listening to two
men who were ridiculing Logan's
lack of scholarship until he boiled
over something like this:
"Prob'ly John Logan can't talk in
er grammarly manner. Prob'ly he
can't, but let me tell yer or one time
when he did talk aud it sounded
good to every, one that heerd him,
whether grammarly or not I dunno.

Our Humphrey contemporary, the
Independent, affects to think that "If
there is a political party cxiBtmg to
day with a higher principle and a
nobler purpose than to get, or hold,
the offices, and divide the stealings,
it is only in the minds and political
thunder of politicians, who have an
'ax to grind' or are paid for influenc
ing public opinion." Political parties
are made up by honest, fair-minded,
useful, manly voters uniting to ac
complish a purpose or institute a
policy of goyernment which they
deem for the good of the country,
and they aud their adherents are
much to be preferred to that nonde
script creature who has no political
principles, works with nobody, has
noeWoio-citizens and thinks all men
mercenary. Iu the times or rcoeuion
it was not an uncommon saying with
this class that our loyal soldiers were
in the service of their country merely
for the $13 a month that they got, and
this assertion of the Independent that
present political parlies exist only
"to get or hold the, offices and divide
the stealings," is as unfounded as the
other, and is an insult to the intelli
gence of every honest grccubacker,
anti-monopolist, democrat or repub
lican who chooses to be a factor in
the management of affairs, rather
than be a political dude.
It was expected at the time it oc
cured that that "compromise"
between the Senate Judiciary Com
mittee and the Union Pacific Railway
Company would lead to scandalous
comment, but it was hardly looked
for in the Senate itself. Yet Mr.
Van Wyck, who is a very outspoken
Senator, has called it up in open
session, and asked by what authority
the Judiciary Committee could mako
such a' bargain and clinch it by a
formal resolution. The more one
looks at the action of that committee
the more Van Wyck's action would
seem to be justifiable. What right
has any committee of either house to
make bargains as to legislation, make
compromises with recalcitrant corpor
ations, without once consulting the
full body? It seems liko a high
handed piece of work, for which even
so high and mighty an organization
as the Senate Judiciary Committee
should be brought to account. There
has always been a great deal of
subserviency in the Senate to the
Pacific railway companies, and of late
the public has grown restive under
it The action or the Judiciary Com
mittee iu hastily resolving to relieve
the Union Pacific of the consequences
of amending the Thurman act with
out even consulting the Senate Is well
calculated to call attention anew to
this suspicious subserviency, and it
certainly merits sharp comment in
the Senate and out of it. We are
glad that it seems likely to get it.

A. C. Pemberton, of Central City,
this state, some time last April went
to Utah, and his son at Central City
recently received a letter from Utah
announcing his death. On account of

been foully dealt with, aud has taken
steps to have the matter investigated
by the U. S. Marshal of the territory.
A wholesale raid was made on
sportiug bouses at Fremont recently

Charles Stewart, ofPapillion,Neb.,
left his home one day last week to go
to Omaha to sell a horse. He was
last seen at an Omaha livery stable,
where he Bold the horse, put the
money in his pocket and started for

reached. A son of the missing man
has been in Omaha searching for him,
but thus far the search has been in
vain. Suspicions are strong among
his friends that he has been mur

The Omaha City Council is as good
as a circus any day. The chief at
traction lately has been the situation
caused by the indictment of the
Mayor, Champion S. Chase. On
behalf of elevea members of the
Council, Isaac Uascall presented
charges against the Mayor, .and de
manded his suspension from office.
The array of charge is fearfal, in
volving habitual drnnkenness; in
competency caused by drunkenness
and derangement of the nervous
system, which have affected his brain
and produced unsoundness of mind ;
taking and ' receiving bribes from
gamblers and others ; conspiring and
conniving with R. C. Guthrie, city
marshal, for gain, to allow and suffer
the laws and ordinances of the city to
be violated without prosecuting or
punishing the offenders. Hascall
stated that the Mayor was incom
petent, and that it was manifest he
was not in his right mind. Mr.
Lccder said that the thing that
soffened the mayor's brain was that
be had telephoned too often to Has
call's beer garden and called him
down to give him advice. Mr. Has
call, (who is well known to be able
to give as well as to take bard
blows,) rejoined that if anybody rep
resented the wine and beer element
it was Leeder and not himself. Ho
sometimes went to LeederV'shebang"
but the whiskey was bo vile that it
drove him out the back door. The
Mayor was fiually suspended. We
notice, in our Omaha news, that
Chase's counsel, Thurston, Connell
aud Bloom, have asked that the in
dictment against him be quashed for
misjoinder, and defect of form.
The Political Oatltfok.
A letter to tho Chicago Tribune,
written from Fremont, this state, has
some very pointed things to say to
and of George William Curtis, the
editor of Harper's Weekly:
"The question which he raises is
this: 'Are the people to be trusted
longer in the selection of their candi
dates, or is it necessary to have a few
self-constituted reformers select can
didates for them?'
If the people are no longer to be
trusted, if the republican form of gov
ernment is a failure, the people will
not be satisfied until they learn that
from somo different source than
Goorge William Curtis, a sniveling
toady to English aristocracy.
The couutry has been waiting for
years for Curtis to inaugurate some
great reform, but so far he has only
proven a great disappointment. He
lays great stress upon civil service
roform, at the &ame time he is as mute
as a mouse upon other far greater
eyils which are threatening our gov
ernment. If he would circulate a little out
side his narrow den, and come to
Nebraska, for instance, he would soon
learn that the people are far more
interested in having the rates of
transportation reduced so that they
can realize a fair compensation for
their labor than they are in all this
talk of civil service reform. To ro
form our civil service is, no doubt,
quite necessary, but a real roformer
will attack the greater evils first.
Curtis stock is not now, nor never
was, at par in Nebraska, and never
will be unless he ceases riding hob
bies and goes to work iu earnest in
the interests of the people."
John Brcnnan of Sioux City writes
a letter to the Western Celt of Omaha,
giving the reasons why he leaves the
Democratic part' this time, to vote
for Blaine :
"Why rush back forty years for my
politics? My generation will carve
out its own issues. When the Lon
don Times, the Evening Post, .Tone's
New York Times, Puck, and Har
per's Weekly, the Cobdeu club and
the Orangemen of Pennsylvania and
New Jersey are on one 6ide, give me
the other side, please. If these things
were in Heaven and I had to train
with them, I would never onter the
gate. I have groped amid the tombs
too long. I am at last living under
the light of reason. I am not the dog
of the republican party, nor the dupe
of the democratic party.
I have faith in freedom, faith in the
capacity of man for self-government,
faith in the future of my raco. 1 be
lieve in the equality of ail men before
the law. I have hope for the down
fall of England. Hope for the per
petuity of American institutions. I
shall vote as seems to me best for the
advancement of all these. I shall
vote for whom I please. I shall vote
for Blaine and Logan. My soul is
my own, my ballot ditto."
The following speaks for itself, and
is doubtless one of many similar
letters :
"Columbus, Neb., Jnne 20, '84.
Messrs. Harper Bros., N. Y., Gen
tlemen : I have been a reader of
your publications for many years;
my bouse contains many volumes of
them. Since the disgraceful, aud, as
I believe with eight-tenths of the re
publican party, dishonest act of your
man Friday, Goorge W. Cnrtis, at the
Chicago convention, I have directed
the newsdealer to 6top them. When
you undertake to kill the republican
party you will find your influence
amounts to about the same that it did
when you attempted to stab Abraham
Lincoln. The republican party con
demned your infamous course at that
time, but this yon will find the un
pardonable sin which will never be
forgiven. It will bury you bo deep
that the trumpet of the Arch-angel
will never awaken you; execration
will be your monument.

Corporal Faalsaateat ia Pablic
Editor Journal: An article in
the Journal of the 18th ult. demands
consideration. Please allow the other
side a place in yonr excellent periodi
cal. Your correspondent demands
that corporal punishment be banished
from our public schools or our pres
ent board of education put out of
office at the next election. While
mental culture ia the first object of
of the school, discipline is necessary.
If the pupils be allowed to disobey
the teachers in the school-room and
on the play -ground the public schools
will not help to train them for law
abiding citizenship. If in childhood
they disobey the law of the school, in
maturity they will disobey the law of
the land. Your correspondent has a
lively imagination indeed. Look at
the overdrawn picture. "Back lacer
ated. Hands blistered with a ferule.
Teacher acting as judge, jury and
hangman at pleasure. Outrageous
brutality of scourging a weak, help
less child I" No teacher in our city
schools sat for that picture. I have
frequently visited our schools and
find the teachers to be ladies and gen
tlemen of fine culture, good judgment
and tender feelings. In the name of
fair play why should any one inti
mate that tboy are brutes? Two
years ago when our teachers rebuked
the children they defiantly replied,
"What will you do about it? You
dare not touch us." Now it can bo
seen in the school-room and on the
play-ground that tho teachers, and
not the scholars, are at the head of the
schools. For several years I taught
in public schools and do not want my
children to attend any school, the
directors of which say, "Corporal
punishment must in no case bo in
flicted." If it were only cruelty that
"Parent" condemns I would agree
with him ; but he denounces all cor
poral punishment as a "rolic of bar
barism." Before me lies a book adapted to
the highest civilization, which says:
"He that spareth his rod hateth his
son ; but he that love him chasteueth
him betimes." Proverbs xiii, 24.
In the eye of the law of Nebraska,
the teacher is, during school hours, in
the place of the parent both iu gov
ernment and responsibility.
