He is not yet able to leave the house. An exchange calls, upon the senate to demand the papers in the case the rumor that President Cleveland is to be married. The Nebraska City saloon keepers have all signed an agreement not to ell any liquor to any man who is known to have signed the temperance pledge. There is a very general agreement that the Secretary of the Treasury will never resume the onerous duties of his office. The strain has been too great for him, and he cannot return to it without imperiling his life. Mrs. Bruns and Miss Nina Brans, her young daughter, whose home is at Niobrara, Neb., mysteriously dis appeared from Chicago sometime last January, and have not been heard from since, nor have they put in an appearance at their Niobrara home. The President has relieved Brig. Gen. Crook from the command of the department of Arizona and assigned him to the department of the Platte. Brig. Gen. N. A. Miles, now in com mand of the department of the Mis souri, has been assigned to the de partment of Arizona. The speech of Hon. John C. Spooner of Wisconsin in the Senate March 18 and 19, on the relations between the senate and executive departments is well worthy of study by politicial students. It is a clear, logical state ment, and a patriotic protest against the position of President Cleveland. A SMALL fire occurred the other morning at Edgar, Neb., burning the house of J. P. Nelson, valued at 800. Mrs. MoBholder, tenant, suc ceeded in saving most of the house hold goods though in a much damaged condition. The prompt and heroic work of citizens prevented the fire from spreading and resulting in a disastrous fire to the town. Senator Manderson's bill appro priating $200,000 for the sale or the present site and buildings thereon of Fort Omaha and tho securing of a new site within ten miles of Omaha and the erection of buildings thereon for a twelve-company post, is likely to become a law. Omaha is growing very rapidly, her success being due to the enterprise of her citizens. A. J. Anderson, a Swede, whose body wsb found the other morning just east of Boyd's packing house at Omaha, it appears committed suicide by cutting his throat with a razor. From a ticket and papers in his possession he was on his way to Scandla, Republican county, Kansas, where he has a half brother by the name of A. P. Aspergen living. The Omaha Republican says: "Charley Mathewson has been a bank rupt for ten years. He wsb not ruin ed by cards, wine or women. He was ruined in character by a desire to make a big show on a small capital. When disclosure became immanent he departed. The wonder is that he pulled the Wool over the eyes of his friends and acquaintances so long." There are now upwards of 2,000 persons employed in the Treasury building, and investigation shows that at least one thousand visitors are in the department during the day on business. In order to provide pure sir it-is proposed to place fans at the four interior corners of the sob basement and force the fresh air up into the rooms by means of flues or pipes. The Agricultural Department at Washington City has issued a caution to farmers against the designs of a lot of impostors who are engaged in a systematic effort to impose upon them by the sale of worthless seeds. Far mers cannot be too closely upon the watch to detect bad soeds. We learn that already in several of tbe States arrangements have been made to sell and distribute such worthless seeds. Fairbdrt Gazette has this item: "We were shown an interesting relic a few days ago by Wm. Lowe. It was an issne of the first paper pub lished in Ohio, the Belmont Journal, published at St. Clairsvillo, Aug. 7th, 1819. It was a small affair and yel low with age." We have many dis tinct remembrances of events that happened at that old town. The Gazette should havo given the name of the editor. There has just been an investigation of the sanitary condition U. S. Treas ury building, and it is. pronounced deplorable and dangerous, a veritable hot bed of disease. Congress will be asked for at least $100,000 to remedy the evil. At present Congress allows $15,000 a year for repairs about the Treasury, and this sum is speedily exhausted in minor repairs, and very little can be utilized for improving the sanitary condition of affairs. The recent State Teachers' Associa tion held at Lincoln had a large at tendance, and its proceedings throngh nt were of a very interesting character. Some of the papers read ad subjects discussed showed ability si have been spoken of in the bighasi terms of praise. The paper read m the 1st inst, by Miss Hosv ford, of North Platte, received the highest praise. Jamer, Saperiatea deat of the Omaha schools, was alected president for the ensuing year, Miss Greenlee, of Richardson caaaty, recording secretary, and Miss Hewitt, of. Kearney, eorraspaading Lincoln was aeleatad as for holdiag the next ' We took occasion last week to say that according to some of onr demo cratic cotemporaries it would seem to make little difference to the business of this country what political party is in'power, and that the mere assertion of such a doctrine by them will not save democracy from the wrath of the business men. This remark has. stirred the breth ren to unwonted activity, and even our friend D. Frank Davis thinks that "Brother Moses" "never lets an opportunity to bowl slip' Of course anything said by republicans againBt she supremacy of democratic meas ures and democratic men would be regarded by "brother D. Frank" as a "howl." People generally think it does make a difference on business ; people,-gen-erally, know that when an adminis tration of this great government changes from one political party to another, it does make a difference more difference than tho mere change of paying a salary to A. or to B. Tho last democratic administration (Bu chanan) so reeked with treason that Pierce's was, by comparison (but by comparison only with Buchanan) somewhat creditable. It may suit "our brother D. Frank" to say that it makes no difference on business whether this country shall have at the head of its affairs, holding the purse of the nation, conserving all interests, determining the character of her representatives abroad, shaping the policies that lead to business pros perity or business failnre, men who are in consonance with tho progres sive spirit of tho age, or those who look backward continually, and cling with tenacity to evil methods of political action. The Journal is very much assured that the country is not in need of offi cials who think it makes no difference to the business of the country which political party is in power. It has made a difference and it always will make a difference The atmosphere of civil and religions liberty is so permeating in this country that it affects every breathing soul. The country's progress may be stayed by tho chance success of a reactionary political party, now and again, but that progress cannot bo long delayed. It will overrido all opposing' elements, and demonstrate even to blind parti sans that it does make a difference what political party is in power. The blind Chaplain of tho House of Representatives is attracting marked attention to his morning prayers these days. In ono invoca tion he denounces blood and pomp and beseeches the Lord to onable tho intelligent men and women of the land to comprehend that in this Re publican country there can be no privileged class, and that in this ago no aristocracy can be built on the fable of blood, Norman, Guelph or Ghibellene. In another he aBks God to rid tho laud of gamesters and itemizes their transgressions as gamblings in cards or dice or chips or stock, wheat or cotton. Then he conveys to tho "God of Jacob" in formation concerning the strikes and depicts the scenes of horror that may be enacted in every Capitol of Europe and America. He wanted the rich men of the world roused to under stand that the time has come for grinding monopoly to cease, and for corporations to get souls in them, consciences and' human kindness. Dr. Milburn's style of prayer recently is by no means popular with all the Congressmen. Mr. James, a member from N. Y., objected to this last petition being printed in the Con gressional Record, characterizing it sotto voce an "incendiary speech. Apropos of the organization at Lincoln of a Woman's Christian Asso ciation, the Journal remarks : "As a matter of fact, the young women who go wrong have in nine cases out of ten a better, ground of complaint against society as accessory to their failure in life than young men who go wrong. Not so many young women are thrown upon the world and their own resources for a living as of the other sex, but thousands are so thrown every year in every large city and the avenues are few and the opportunity to push their fortunes promptly are far between. A little help and encouragement from their own sex would generally preserve to society and usefulness those who now fall by tbe wayside. It is more espe cially an important work for tbe rea son that when a youug man tumbles in the ditch he is picked up, washed, renovated, and set on his feet again, society generally asking pardon for tbe ditch. When a young woman fails she isn't picked up and renovat ed to any appreciable extent and society never thinks of apologizing. Hence it is better to guard her a little in the outset." News from the great strike at St. Louis and other points up to the 30th ult. givee no evidence of an improve ment in the situation. At cast St. Louis the transfer men had joined the strike and the moving of trains stop ped. At Kansas City a train had been ditched by Martin Scow and James Noonan, two strikers, which after an exciting chase and some shooting, re sulted in the capture of both men by the officers. Noonan refused to obey the officer to hault, and he shot him in tbe leg which bronght him to a sodden stop. On the 3d, a conflict took place at Fort Worth in which three men were killed, and several wounded. The crime of drunkenness is being recognized in more states than Ne braska. No reasonable man will affirm that any one has any sort of right to get drunk, and there the ordinary citizen will draw the line. At Pittsburg, Pa., recently, Jndge Ewing, Jn reviewing a case before him, said : "The man who sells liqnor to as habitual drunkard, knowing him to be such, Ib worse to the community than a thief." When this sentiment becomes thoroughly ingrained ioto tbe better of a community, and is car ried into action, the evils of drunken aeas will be vary greatly lessened, if as The investigation of the Graham tragedy at Springfield, Mo., proceeds slowly on account of the ill health of Mrs. Malloy, one of the suspected parties, who had something to do with the murder of Mrs. Graham the first wife of George E. Graham. . Tho testimony on the 26th ult, disclosed tbe fact that Mrs. Malloy bad used her influence and finally succeeded in getting the bank officers to permit her to mako good their loss and not prosecute Graham for the forgery. The witness stated that she was very much agitated, an anxiety to shield Graham seeming uppermost. She made the statement that Graham was not in his right mind when he did it, and that there was something behind it all that drove him to commit the forgery ; that he never would be ar rested alive; that he carried poison on his person, and would commit suicide before submitting to arrest. Mrs, Malloy asked Mr. McElhaney, cashier of the First National Bank, for a private audience to be held at the bank, at which only a few of her most intimate friends were to be present. At this audience Mrs. Mal loy disclosed the fact that Graham bad a wife in Indiana when he mar ried Cora Lee ; that she was missing, and that the Malloy honsehold was being sharply interrogated by his first wife's relatives in Indiana as to her whereabouts, and that to escape this Graham had forged the checks. She aUo stated in ' this confidential in terview that Sarah Graham came of a low family, and that she could at that time be found in some bawdy house in St. Louis. The restaurant keeper where Graham confessed he and his wife took supper, testifies that there were two women in the room that evening, only one of whom took sup per, but Graham seemed to have out door interviews with the one that was deeply veiled, whom tho witness described in size aud height cor responds with Cora Lee Graham, the second wife of George E. Graham. This testimony in part discloses the theory of the state that by arrange ment that evening Cora Leo Graham, the second wife, camo in with the spring wagon to take the trusting first wifo out to tho Mrs. Malloy's premises, and was ehot in the wagon while on tbe road, and afterwards concealed in tbe old well on tbe Mrs. Malloy farm. A special dispatch from Spring field, Mo., announces the fact of tho close of the preliminary examination of Cora Lee Graham and Mrs. Mol Ioy, for tbe murder of Mrs. Graham. The justices decided that Cora Lee was accessary to the crime beforo the fact and 'that she bo held without bail, and that Mrs. Molloy was accessary after the fact and be held in $5,000 bonds. The court room was densely crowded and the decision gave gen eral satisfaction. Tbe women re ceived the final result quietly. A report comes from McCook, Neb., that the boiler in the bath room of E. P. Sharp, exploded the other morning injuring several persons and wrecking two buildings. Tho explo sion was with such violence it drove parts of the boiler up through the roof and shattered he building. The largest piece of the boiler in its de scent crashed throngh the roof of the Democrat office across the street, leav ing it a total wreck and striking and demolishing a hand press valued at $300. A terrirle tragedy was enacted the other night at Carroll ton, Miss., where thirteen negroes were waiting for their trial to commence, for the attempted assassination of James Lid dell, a prominent citizen, who was shot and seriously wounded by these colored men several weeks ago ; fifty white men rode into the town, went to the court bouse and shot ten of tbe colored men dead and mortally wonnded the other three. Mr. F. W. Bridwell, the Waco, Nebraska, school master, and Miss Mary Wellington, the pretty school girl, with whom be ran away, passed Sunday in Denver in the close com-' panionship of Detective Watrons. It is nn unfortunate affair for Mr. Bride well, his wife, and Miss Wellington, but the legal profession is puzzled to determine his offense under the law. His wifo can alone settle the question by applying for a divorce. News ISvteaw Grand Island has 26 saloons. New York City is 200 years old.

It is an indispensable book for all who are, or expect to be, interested in public land. Settlers will save money by purchasing it, and al! who expect to take up land should get posted on the several lawB under which land can be entered. A chapter, illustrated with numerous cuts, shows how to tell township, section, and quarter-section corners, and explains the syctem of surveys. It gives Commissioner Sparks' orders and several late decis ions and instructions, and full infor mation abont the homestead, pre emption, timber culture, dosert land, and other laws. Tho prico of the book is only 25 cents. It will tell you who ia entitled to enter laud ; how continuous your res idence must be; what improvements you must make; what affidavits you must swear tO; all abont contests and on what grounds they can be com menced ; also about State lands, stone and timber lands, mineral lands, des ert entries, saline, railroads, eoal, townsitc, and other lands ; scrip, war rant, aud other entries, &c. Its pur chase will save you money and trouble, as erroneous statements cir culated by conversation among set tlcrt may, if acted upon, cost yon a content, perhaps your land and im provements.
