with tho railrood companies. Tho
Illinois Central received tho lion's
share of it.
Tin: inexcusable folly of tho Indian
pence policy received n very forcible
IJlustration at Wit-hington yesterday.
While tho whole nation was in con
vulsions of indignation and rago at
tho perfidy of the Modoc assassins,
our religious CommUioner of Indian
Afliiirn was delivering himself of n
sermon, which had for its toxt "Tho
only road to roform of tho noblo red
man lies in the path of nnlvution."
Wo apprehend tho only roud to In
dian salvation lies in tho path of the
cannon, j-lllo ball and sabre.
Ki)WAUr H. S. Oaniiy, llrigndicr
General in tho regular army, and
Brevet Major General, was n nativo
of Kentucky. Ho was appointed to
tho Military Academy at West Point
from that Stato in tho year 18!15.
Graduating in 18111), ho was commis
sioned second lioutcnaut in tho 2d
infantry. On tho 18th of"Junc,
1810, ho v.as ptomoted to first .lieu
tenant, and in tho following year he
was mado brovet capTttin and assist
ant adjutant general. Dining the
Mexican war ho won two further bre
vets for gallant and meritorious con
duct. In March, 1855, ho was pro
moted to major of the 10th infantry,
and upon tho reorganization of tho
regular army in tho spring of 1801,
lie became colonel of tho 10th in
fantry. His services during tho war wero
active and conspicuous, and advanced
him rapidly to tho rank of major
general of volunteers. On tho 28th
of July, 18GI), ho was commissioned
brigadier gonoral in tho reguhtrarmv,
.which position he hold at tho time of
A TIMKI.Y HUT COSTLY I.KNSOX.
Tho cruehissassinatlon of General
Canby nnd Messrs. Thomas and Men
chain, while acting in tho capacity of
peace commissioners, by tho cowardly
and perfidious Captain Jack and his
gang of red-skinned cut-throats, can
not fail to leach tho iii.tion n timely,
but rather expensive lesson. It will
undoubtedly forcibly impress upon
President Grant and Ills cabinet the
criminal folly of pursuing thu o
called Quaker policy lu dealing with
bands of marauders and murderers of
Indian extraction. It will arouse
,tli entire nation to a just under
standing of tho character of tho
noblo red man, whoso chivalry and
manliness havo so frequently been ox
tolled and misrepresented by extrava
gant romances, CromFoiutlmoroCooi
er down to tho present yellow-back
An organized baud of white thieves
or highway robbers is usually pur
sued by shorllfs nnd militia. If cap
tured they aro dealt with in accord
ance with criminal codes, and
often in accordauco with tho
rules - ami regulations of n
vigilanro committee. If, however,
n band of copper-colored savages or
ganizes for raplno nud plunder, de
liberately commits all manner of
nlfocilief, including larceny, arson,
and murder, they nro treated like bo
many prodigal eoii. A pence cm- J
bassy is appointed to havo a talk
with them. Valuable presents nro
sent to them. Pipes of peaco arc
smoked, nnd flasks of whisky demol
ished to npenee their wrath. Im
plicit confidence is placed in their
pledges nnd promises. They nro
coaxed to return nnd partake of tho
fntted calf that the generous Great
Father has killed nnd prepared for
them. If a desperato and uncom
fortable situation compels theso pam
pered criminals to accept tho proffered
invitation, tlteir crimes arc white
washed with red and yellow ochre,
and their infamous conduct rewarded
by liberal donations of costly trinkets.
Hloodtliirsty savages, who had been
promoted to chieftainship for their
atrocious cunning and relentless cru
elty, arc transported nt the public ex
pense across the continent to thu Na
tional Capitol and the great cities on
tho sea-board. They are every where
fawned upon nud feasted liko trav;
ellng princes. After much dining
and whining, much smoking and a
heap of talk, they arc permitted to
roturn to their kith nnd kin loaded
down with numberless presents. In
a short Jtimc they resume their bloody
work, and if, perchance, these chiefs
arc captured, they readily explain
by excusing themselves under tho
plea of inability to control their
young warriors. Wo havo for hoiuo
time past treated tho wholo proceed
ings with the handful of Modocs as a
costly farce. Tho farco has wound
up in a tragedy, and that tragedy is
to lie followed by a drama, which wc
hopo will termluato in tho extermi
nation of tho wholo Modoc tribe.
Tho unexpected treachery thnl
culminated in the delibcrato butchery
of the Modoc peace commissioners,
makes humanity shudder nt tho bru
tal degradation of theso wretches.
Liko n spark dropped into a powdor
mngtixino it explodes tho theories and
speculations of phllautropists of the
quitkor stripe, and places tho Indian
onco more before tho American peo
ple in his true character. Tito wholo
fabric, based upon tho vng.irio.' of the
so-called peace policy men, must now
fall before these irrehistiblo facts,
but if in the end tho life blood of
General Canby nnd his mnssacrcd
companions shall bcrvo ns a sacrifice
to savo tho lives and property of
hundreds of other peaceable citizens,
wo may yet havo tho consolation
that thoy havo not died in Ynin.
Wo understand that within a few
days tho plans for a general system of
grading nnd scworago will bo present
ed to our City Council for considera
tion und approval. Theso plans havo
been prepared in accordance with
careful topographical surveys by tho
City Kugineer, in consultation nnd
with tho ndvico of Mr. Phillips, one
of the most prominent soworngo en
gineers in this country. Tho adop
tion of theo plans will involve no
immediato outlay, unless tho Council
shall deem it advisable to put them
into execution. Assuming, howovcr,
that lite permanent system of grading
and sewerage shall bo deemed a mat
ter of absolute necessity, the question
will nrise whether we, as a city, are
prepared o inaugurate such a system
during tho present season. For our
part wo nro convinced that Omaha
must either enter actively upon tho
work of grading nnd paving our prin
cipal thoroughfares, and provido an
artificial system of drninago thorcfor,
or sho may as well prepare to surren
der her boasted prestige as tho ac-J
kuowlegcd metropolis of Nebraska,
Even tho young and thriving city of
Lincoln is nlready far ahead of Oma
ha in this respect. Their principal
thoroughfares and public square has
been graded, and commodious side
walks may bo found on nearly ovory
street. Thoy have built one very
substantial sower, erected bridges
and sunk nu artesian well at a cost of
sovcral thousand dollars. Under our
now city charter tho legal obstacles
that hava hcretoforo prevented tho
systematic collection of special taxes
havo been removed. Tho subterfuge
of certain anti-progressionists, who
seek to escape their liabilities for
constructing sidewalks because tlto
grade has not been established, will
soon bo removed. Our Mayor and
City Council must now seo to it that
tho obstacles to Mife nud convenient
locomotion in our streets bo also re
moved, and that very speedily.
There is no uo of inviting capital
ists to coma to Omaha, u invest their
money, until our citizens can exhibit
their individual confidence in her fu
ture progress and prosperity through
well graded and pa vod streets. Cities,
liko men, are generally apt to make n
hitting impression at first sight. Let
any stranger view tho formidable tips
and downs on our principal thorough
fares, or attempt to drivo through
them after n heavy rain storm, and
twenty chances to one, ho comes to
tho conclusion that tho town is on
tho verge of bankruptcy and Its citi
zens preparing to movo to a more
Thoro nro those who will oppoo
every cflbrl at public improvements
just now, on the plea of poverty. To
thoso wo would say Omaha, as com
pared with towns and cities of tlto
sumo population in any part of the
country, Is exceedingly well fixed.
Sho owes a total debt of about $G00,
000, which can almost bo olf-sot by
the value of real estate nnd othor
property owned by the city. Lin

population and one-tenth of her

She lias expended nearly n million in

to those public improvements as
much ns any other cauo she owes her

We do not nrguc that wo must
complete tho projected Improvements
within ono or two years, but wo
assert emphatically that wo cannot
allow this season to pass without
making n vigorous beginning.
Wo hope Mayor Urcwcr will per
sonally urgo tho necessity of early
notion in this direction, upon our
City Council. Ho can do nothing that
will raise him in tho estimation of
our present ns well as our future
population, so much as tho inaugura
tion during his term, of a system of
pcrmanicut public improvements.

Foivr limiwr.n, April 10.
On Monday morning, April 7, a
party consisting of Judgo Carter, of
Fort Hridgcr, Mr. and Mrs. O. D.
Hryant, Mrs. nnd Miss Crane, ami
Miss McAlpine, of Cincinnati, took
tho train at Omaha, where they had
remained over Sunday. Two of the
party wero going to Fort Hridger,
and tho others wero found for San
Francisco. Thoy were a merry party,
ever ready for lun nnd excitement ;
but towards evening they wero wish
ing for some now amusement, when
to their surprise and delight Mr.
Brant announced that tho coming
day was tho fifth anniversary of his
wedding tiny, nnd consequently
thought it ndvisablo to havo a wooll
en' wedding. Tho young ladies im
mediately entered into tho spirit of
the affair, und appointed themselves
a committeo of arrangements to havo
all things mado ready, and conduct
tho ceremonies in a stylo which be
fitted tho occasion, and insisted that
tho Judge should perform tho mar
riage ceremony, that the happy couple
might again bind themselves by
It was very difficult to obtain suit
able gilts for tho occasion, but "ne
cessity knows no law," and. although
everything was not to their satisfac
tion, yet what was lacking in quality
was replaced by quantity.
At last tho eventful evening ar
rived. All were in a flutier of ox
cltcment, except tho two most inter
ested, who were very indifferent to
llio brido submitted verv grace
fully to having her hair dVcorutcd
with flowers, which Miss Crano very
tastefully fashioned from bluo tissue
paper. Tho groom, also, with a for
titude rarely equalled, allowed ono
of tho ladies to victimize him to the
extent of placing one of tho spurious
flowers in his button-hole.
Besides tho above mentioned per
sons, there were present Mr. Tibbals,
palace car conductor ; Mr. Millo, pas
senger conductor, and two or thrco
At a quarter before eight, on
Tuesday evening, tho ceremonies be
gan with tho presentation of gifts.
Most conspicuous among tliom was a
keg, which was obtained nt Sherman,
tho highest point on the U. P. line.
"It has uo top or bottom, but yet it is
a very good keg," was tho explana
tion given tho astonished groom, by
tho young ladies.
Next in order wero two large billets
of wood, measuring from three to four
feet in length, and six to eight inches
Thirdly, a few bundles of kindling
wood, which Miss McAlpine beenred
nt Grand Island. Their uso was in
definite, but we presume they woro
intended to bo used for toothpicks.
They were nbout eight inches long,
and one-half inch square Lastly, a
cigar box, containing numerous ready
Tho greater number of tho gifts
woro presented with tho compfiments
of tho party, and of courso tho croom
especially, was hiehlv delitrhtcd with
them, and had serious thoughts of
ciiuriuniig u car in carry iiicni to an
After tho presentation, tho party
wero regaled with cake, crackers, ap
ples, doughnuts, hard boiled eggs, nnd
Next in order was tlto marriage
ceremony by Judgo Carter, which
took placo while tho train was pass
ing under tho second snow-shed west
of Lookout. After tho Judgo had
pronounced the words, "Whom God
hath ioined together," etc., lie ad
vanced nnd kised tho bride, and then
proceeded to kiss every lady of tho
party. One, howovcr, resisted, and
tho struggle resulted hi upsetting two
boxes ot Latoy's best candy. Tho
popular toast of tho ovonfug was,
!'lhe health of tho brido and groom,
and may they live long and prosper,"
which was drank with hearty good
will by tho gentlemen of tho party.
Lastly, thoy partook of ginger-snaps
and peanuts, nnd agreed that the
wholo affair had been a success. After
tho excitement had abated somewhat,
tho happy irroom remarked, "1 have
lived wftli4iy wlfo 11 vo years, nnd I
bcllovo I like hor better now than I
did at tho beginning of that tlmo."
After this remarkable concession Mrs.
Hryant was looked upon as an un
common lady to desorvo such praise.

We liavo a word to say In favor of tho Mis
sourl Pacific Ilallro.nl. It was tho "pioneer"
line westward and Is Ilia "old reliable" roulo
to St. Louis. With the Improvements that
have been made during tho past year, wo be
lieve that the Missouri Pacific railroad lias the
best track and tho finest and safest equipment
of any line west of tho Mississippi. It is Ihe
only line which runs three dally cxpreis trains
of due conches and Pullman sleepers, equipped
with the Miller platform and tho patent air
brake, from leading points In tho West, through
Kansas City, Sedulfa and Jeflursou City to bt.
Louis, without change, connecting at ht. Louis
with eleven dlHercut through routes to points
north, cast and south. No change of cars from
Omaha to St. Louis via this routo. Particular
information, nllh maps, tlmo tahlos, Ac, may
be hail at tho Throiinh Ticket" Railroad Shi.

application to U, II. lt.ixter, Western Passen
