contemplated n coup d edit in enso a
majority of the Cortes (should vote
him out of power. Wo npprebond
Castcllnr is too much of a true He
publican to attempt a forcible over
throw or frco government. In nil
probability thU sensational telegram
will bo contradicted within tho nest
Mr. Wm. OrtTOK, in bchall ol the
Western Union telegraph monopoly,
tells Postmaster General Creswcll
what ho knows about tho history ol
tho Pacific tolegrnph lino from Oma
ha to San Francisco. Mr. Orton as
erls that tho ? 100,000 subsidy paid
by tho Government for tho encour
agement of tho enterprise was nioro
than counterbalanced in dollars and
cents by tho tolegrams transmitted
freo of cliargo by tin Government
over that line. If Mr. Or
ton was disponed to tell nil
tho fact in connection with the
Pacific tolegraph, ho would exhibit
one of tho most stupendous frauds
ever perpetrated upon a liberal gov
ernment. Ho would tell tho PobI
master General how tho charter of
tlm concern was systematically vio
lated in letter and in spirit, rfind how
both the peoplo and tho Government
wero subjected to a ecries of unmiti
THE MILITIA BUSINESS.
In times of peaco prepare for w.-r
is evidently tho maxim that guides
Governor Furnas in his recent warn
like preparations. Whon tho Gov
ernor appointed his first Adjutant
General wo wero disposed to look
upon tho exercise of this higher law
function as a matter of mere con
venience Tho privato secretary of
Hit Excellency was a very proper
person for such a position, inasmuch
as his constant presence at the Stato
capital enables him to attend to any
requisition for arms or munitions of
war in cases ot extraordinary emor
gency. When apprised of the ap
polntment of a second Adjutant Gen
eral, at Schuyler, wo wero disponed
to ridlctilo tho performance).
Now, that wo aro assured that tho
Governor hus gone into tho whole
sale commission business, wo aro be
ginning to look upon this sudden
manufacturo of generals, colonels,
aud majors, from n moro serious
stand-point. According to the Bea
trice Express, II. W. Parker, Esq.,
of that city, has rccrdyod a brigadior-
gcnoral's commission, with tho title
of Englnecr-insChief of tho Stato
militia, and tho Omahu Republican
informs us that Mr. E. T. Test, of this
city, holds another brigadier's com
mission as quartermaster-general,
while Dr. Wilkinson, of Dakota City,
has been dubbed a Burgeon-general.
Now what docs all this mean ?
Whcro docs tho Govornor derive his
authority for issuing these commis
sions? Why does ho Issue them at a
tlmo of prolound posco ? llcfoio en
tering upon any argument touching
the legality of theso commissions wo
must assume that tho Governor ol
this Stato is to bo guided und con
trolled in all his actions by tho con
stitution and lawsof this State, which
aro the foundation of all his powers
and prerogatives. Tho Constitution
of this Stato makes tho Governor tho
Comin&uder-in-Chicf of tho military
and naval forces of tho Stato.
On tho other hand, tho constitution
clothes tho Legislature with tho solo'
power to organize tho militia and
provido for tholr government. Sec
tion 20, article Legislature, reads as
follows: "The Legislative shall de
termino what pcrsonsshall constitute
tho militia of tho State, aud may
provido for organizing and disciplin
ing tho samo in such maimer n shall
bo prescribed by law." In othor
words, tho Legislature shall framo
the laws for tho organization of mil
itia, and tho Govornor shall oxecuto
theso laws. Now, tho only provis
ions mado by tho Lcgislr.tmo for tho
organizitlon of militia, will bo found
upon pages -170, 71 and 72, of tho
erised statutes. That act is sub
stantially as follows:
Section 1 designates tho persons 11
ablotomlliliaduty. Section 2 declares
that tho' Governor, as Commanders
lu-Chiet of tho militia, may order
ut tb Militia in ease of Imurrco-
tion, iuvution or war. Section 3 au
thoiizos tho Governor to order out
militia by companies, or by counties,
but Instructs him to bavo duo regard
lo sparsely settled fronlior counties,
whoso militia men shall not
be called awuy from their
own counties, except when de
manded by imperative uccosilty.
Section 4 authorize tho organization
of Independent militia companies,
whoso officers shall bo elected by the
membors of such companies and com
missioned by tho Governor. Section
G authorizes tho Governor to nrm,
equip and organizo the militia when
in his judgment ho shall
deem It necessary for tho protection
of the citizens thereof. Section G
authorizes the Governor to appoint
and commission all militia officers
whose election is not provido'd for.
WhlU this provision might techni
cally be construed as sufficient au
thority for tho appointment of Aids-
dcCamp, Quartermaster nnd Surgeon
Generals, Engincera-in-Chief, IJriga
dier and Mnjor Generals ad libitum.
Wo boliovojthe spirit, if not the letter
of tho law, contemplates no such ap
pointments except in times of threat
ened or actual invasion or insurrec
tion. Does Governor Furnas pretend
that such an emergency exists or is
likely to occur during his present
term of office?
Why then-strotch the authority of
tho law to such an extent? It may
bo argued that thcro is no harm in all
this warlike trumpery, but wo argtio
that Nebraska is loss In want of all
thcao fus and feather holiday officers
than sho was at any timo during her
history. Sho never did enjoy tho
protection of an Engineer in Chiof,
and still sho nourished. She novcr
had n Surgeon-General t feel her
pulso and inspect her tongue, but
thank God sho still survives. Sho
novcr did liavo a Quartormastcr Gen
eral, but by the blessings of l'rovl
denco sho still manages to provide
her sons and daughters with abun
dant and wholesome food and decent
garmenti. Wo would say in all can
dor to tho Governor that, in our
humblo judgment, ho can gain de
cidedly moro icspoct and confidence
by acting as a patron of peaco than
by exorcising questionable functions
as a war Governor.
AMONG THE MORMONS.
What a Gentilo Knows About the
C.rrospondonco ol tho Dee.
OaDBN, January 1, 1874.
Editor Omaiia Disk:
A few items from this outpost of
Latter Day Saintdom may not bo un
interesting to your readors. Thcro
has been quite a stir hero lately, in n
quiet way, concerning the expected
legislation in Congress in regard to
poligamy ; and although thoy aro
like tho old man and his wi(o, who,
going fo law in a certain case, used to
talk it over at homo "o nights," and
get the case every time; yet they
secretly fear that they will como out
as this samo man and wllo did in
their case; they fear that tho law
yers wont do as they (tho Mormons)
desire. The arguments used by the
Mormons when thoy aro conversing
to tho .ithfulare very falacious to
ono who don't bolievo in n divino
rcvclutiou to Joseph Smith. One
great argument thoy uso against any
intorforenco of tho United States
with their peculiar institutions
is that poligamy existed before
Utah belonged to tho United States.
Perhaps this may bo true, but when
they camo under tho U. S. laws that
fact would not rcleaso them from
obeying all laws thus on tho statute
book until their repeal. They also
forget that they, tho Mormons, went
iuto Moxico and established n gov
ernment, nnd foreign to that of the
country thoy then lived in, and at
varionco with it irt overy particular
and acknowledging no alleicauco to
it at all. In other words, thoy stole
the land of another country aim then
complain that they aro misused by
the government that buys tho correct
title from tho real owner of tho coun
try thoy then livo in.
A case of peculiar hardship under
the workings of their polygamous
practices has just become, in a meas
ure, tho property of tho public, and
it will not fail to interest your read
ers, as showing what a, woman will
bear from hor lovo to a so-called re
ligion. Mr. John W. Young, son of
President Drigham Young, Had two
wives (?). Tho first had bomo him
three children, tho second two chil
dren. About this timo ho went
east on n visit with several
of tho prominent Mormons.
Whilo tliero ho becarao acquainted
with n cousin of tho second wifo from
Elkton, 'Intl., aud mado himself so
agrecablo that sho "left all and fol
lowed him." This lady was then a
married woman, though not living
with her husband. (She lived with
her husband only about a week whon,
from some incompatibility of temper,
sho took horeelf away). It is believed
by thoso conversant with tho facts
that this lady from tho first deter
mined to follow out tho plan which
has just been consummated. About
a month after tho party reached Salt
Lako this lady, now Mrs. John W.
Young, (3rd) was divorced from her
first husband and then married to
Mr. Young, according to tho rites of
tho Mormon church. Hero begins
tho trouble. She refused to marry
Mr. Y. unless ho would divorce tho
other two wives, and he, infatuated
with a now faco, did so, although as
yot ho has not ceased to provido for
thorn and their children; but a wo
man who can accomplish so much can
compass even this. What makes tho
cape one of peculiar hardship is the
fuel that tho wlfo who hus turned tho
others out of doors, as it were, is
an own cousin to tho second wife,
their name being Canfield, Tho sec
ond wlfu's nauio is Lucy aud tho third
Supposing this, caso wore to come
into court before an unbiased Jury,
lioW long wovld it bo before Mr.
Ynunj would bo looking out from
behind tho bars of a prison? and tho
world at largo would say, "served
him right." To mako tho matter
more bi'tdlng, tho third wlfo, during
n visit East not long since, bound her
husbind to co through another cer
emony according to tho laws of tho
United States, showing clearly that
her design was to cut ofTtho children
of tho first two wives front any sharo
in tho estato of their fathor In case of
Ills death. This, tho true sido of tho
picture, reduces tho pleasing romance
which somo Eastern paper huvo been
speeding over tho country concerning
this case, lo something very liko
tragedy, lor In tho true picturo are
shown somo of tho worst traits of
character that a woman can possess.
Yet when was tho world any dlller
ent? Even tho last wlfo of David
played tho same gamo on her less
favored companion, aud so gave her
sou tho crown of Judah.
Tho Mormons of to-day aro n peoplo
of progress, as may bo shown in their
numerous schools, &c. That they
aro a body sepcrato nnd looking out
ror their own intcrsis to mo exclus
ion of others. Is n truth that cannot
bo denied. Thoy havo somo good
traits in this connection, though;
they look after their poor, at least so
far as to keep them from Buffering;
but tho inevitable "tithing" comes
into tho account, oven in tho poorest
house. If u iM)or man cams 20 cents
a day, two of that must qo to tho
Prominent Mormons say that tho
women aro tho strongest advocates of
polygamy, even going so far as to
urge upon tholr husbands to take
other wives, aud thoso raised in tho
east among religious peoplo are said
lo bo tho most strenuous in this mat
ter. Ono woman in particular, said
to bo a very nice, puro lady, said:
"If I had known boforo I left En
gland, that tho Mormons mado so
much of polygamy, I would never
have joined them; but sinco I have
learned their doctrines and principles,
I would not 11 vo with n man who did
not preacli it." This goes to show
that there aro many sincere people
among them. Doubtless, many of
them aro filled with tho spirit of the
religion whilo holding principles
of faith entirely opposed to all
revealed religion and tho practice of
nearly tho whole civilized world.
Ono great argument used by tho
Mormons is that they marry numer
ous wives to proventprostitution; but
legalized prostitution is very little
better thau any other. Tho Mor
mons aro wio in ono partiuulir;
thoy all, young and old, join in their
amusements. Dancing is with them
a favorite amusement, and the gray
haired men and women seem to
dolight in il as much as the children,
What would Omaha belles and
beaux think of opening ono of their
"Social" or "Pleasant ilours" with a
prayer to God to keep them from sin
and bless tho dance to their physical
and spiritual good. I think many
would stay awny till after tho open
ing p'rayor; but it is not so with
theso people, who havo such a strange
mixture of tho sublimy, and ridicus
lous in all their belief. They require
no proof of it wbh to livo a pure life
as a condition of church member
ship. If nny one expresses a wish to
pas through tho ordeal they feel
that thoy cannot rcfuso to revive him.
Of course such a ono will bo cut oil
from tho church unless they behave
