The Candidates of the Republican

may be divided under two heads.
Executive and Legislative. The
Executive Department Consists of
the Mayor. Marshal, Police Judge,
Treasurer, Clerk, Street Commis
sioner and Ecngineer, while the
Legislative liranch is composed of
the members of the City Council and
Board of Education. la this sketch
we shall briefly review the anteced

Legislative officials will receive
our attention in our next issue.

him rests the great responsibility of

Colonel Champion S. Chase, and no

dignity and impartiality.
Thoroughly identified with the
material interest of Omaha, Colonel
Chase will ever be found in the
front rank of the men whose enter
prise and industry shall .make .our
city prosperous and progressive.
Of temperate habits and liberal views
Colonel Chase will, we believe,
receive the endorsement of every
conservative and law abiding citi
zen trrespetive of party attachments.
Colonel Chase Is so well known
In this community that we do not

is a very important functionary.
The experience of the past few
years should convince our citizens
that their Police Judge should be a
man of irreproachable moral char

allaeoodjudge of human nature.
We believe Colonel R. W. VUDur
will fulfill these conditions. He is a
man possessed of sound judgment
and an unspotted reputation,
and while his business engage

sympathy with them. He under

Keceat Deeiuou of
Millard, March 18, 1874.
To General Estabrooeb:
Great anxiety Is felt in this part
of the county to know more about
the late decision of Judge Lake In
your suit with City Treasurer John
son, which the Bee says Is a second
trial, and that it was granted by
the Supreme Court We are not
aware that It ever wont, to the Su
preme Court Please give us the
facts In the case. We would also
like to be informed in detail what is
the decision of the Supreme Court
in that Injunction case of Harrison
Johnson, and in what manner it
will affect the taxpayers of the
Yours most respectfully,
i S. Stabret,
S. G. Allen,
Omaha, March 25, 1874.
Yours of the 8th Inst, reached
me only yesterday. The newspa
per paragraph to which you refer is
a jumbllnfr together of two classes,
those of Johnson vs. Hahan, and
Estabrook vs. Johnson.
The first of these Is one of several
cases brought by farmers living in
the western part of the county, in
1870, to restrain the sale of their
land for taxes levied in part to pay
interest upon 0. 4b S. Wrtand o. &
N, W. Railroad lands.
The District Court of this county
refused the injunction, and one case
Hollcnbeck vs. Halm was taken
to the Supreme Court, where, at the
January term, 1S73, the judgment
of the District Court was affirmed,
Judge Qrounse delivering the opin
ion, Judge Mason dissentyng.
This case will ever be memoslo
in the annals of Nebraska jurispru
dence, on account of some peculiar
circumstances attending t,
The opinion aspubUshed in 2
Nebraska Reports, S77, was not filed
until after Judge Crounse ceased to
be Judge; so that it k bat an essay
of a private gentleman upon the
The opinion, as published, occu
pied 40 pages, 32 of whloh Tivas.de,
voted to the qoMstfam of the legality
of the bonds. This part of the opin
ion was written sometime before the
balance aniplaced by the Judge in
the hands of the bankers of Oma
hajrho were, engaged in theiond
speculation, sad by them published
in paaapbJet' form at their own ex
Beaaejwfor free distribution. The
'reason Tor this unusual prooeedlag is
explained In the following extract
from the opinion :
't "As long tbe law remains on
ourstatute-books. and as long as it
feimesssUierJkilroadi to be con
strutted, through counties so as to
c."eq,T benefits upon all sec
ons suisvc, bu wag nw ujere w c-
UJJJon against taxtw levied in their
support;. While this continues an
uneasiness will necessarily possess
the haters of bonds already issued,
and a doubt be thrown over those
which may hereafter be put forth,
which must result in a prejudice to
ihe credit of the State, -which can
only be removed by a final adjuai
natinn bv this tribunal."
This pamphlet and the additional,
eight pages of manuscript are now
on file with the Clerk as the opinion
in this case.
The Judee hastens to the duty oi
quieting the "uneasiness" of East
ern capitalists who -would speculate
in our bonds and who are generally
supposed to be able to take care of
themselves, but forgets the perturba
tion amonir the taxpayers at home,
many of whom were then selling
their corn atl5 cents per bushel to
pay the interest on these bonds. It
is evident that his honor had never
tnVpn the hav-seed decree, to say
nothing of the corn cob and other
higher degrees of the order. -
The balance of the opinion was
devoted chiefly to the point urged
by the plaintiff that before real
estate could be sold the chattels
must be exhausted.
His Honor concludes the case in
these words : "The tax is due ; and
common justice demands that it
should be paid. With the manner
of its collection we have nothing to
n. Th tilaintiff may save both
his personal and real property by
paying a just claim. If he refused
to do this, it is of little concern to
us as an equitable question, whether
tho Treasurer sell the real or per
sonal property or whether ho throt
tle the plaintiff and force him to
perform his duty to the govern
ment which protects both him and
his property, , ,
The judgment of the court below
must be affirmed.
Justice Lake concurs."
Opinions maydffer as may taste,
but there are those who would re
gard the language employed and
spleen manifested by this mouth
piece of our supreme tribunal as ex
ceedingly inappropriate and unbe
coming. After the accession to the supreme
bench of two new Judges anothar
case, Johnson vs Hahn was taken
up and argued at the last January
term, justice juaxweu ueuucu
the opinion of the court, on the 26th
of February last, reversing the
judgment below'and of course over
ruling ine case oi xLJueuin.-v;ik. a.
Hahn. The decision rests upon the
law that the Treasurer must first
exhaust the personal property. The
hnnrts were held lecal under the
rulings of the Supreme Court of tho
United States made Bince these
cases were brought
The case of Estabrook ys. John
son arose under the law relating to
tie cities of the first-lass and of
course is Interesting to those living
outQflh.0 cjty only as it exhibits
the tendency of the times. John
son s dtyTreasurer and as such
seized my law library and office
furniture, and my household furni
ture to ostensibly satisfy taxes due
since 1859. This property was cart
ed to an auction room and advertis
ed for public sale. These facts were
paraded through the papers under
startling head-lines. The property
was sold to tho highest bidder,
bringing' less tHan one-fifth of its
value. Not content with this exhi
bition of me before the public he af
terward took occasion in my ab
sence to seize two old horses, an old
buggjrand an old hack and hitching
them all together behind an express
wagon moved them to the head of
Farnbain, street, tbenoe itx solemn
procession down Faruhara to Ninth
street, thence back again to Thir
teenth, and thence to Harmon's
stable; there, after keeping them
a week or more, ha says lis returned
to where he found them. If he did
it was wtb less eclat, and the fact
was not the subject of public an
nouncement through the news
paper. Now, all this may have been
in the line of official duty, and the
circumstances may have instlfled'a
public verdict of "served himright"
as to me. but when it comes to be
known tnat there were many hun
dreds of persons as actually delin
quent as myself that most of these
had personal property as I had
that he made no other lovy except
upon my property that he made
no attempt to levy anywhere else
except at Maj. Balcombe's, where
the spirited lady of the house met
him at the door and "porsuaded"
him to let things aloue that many
of these delinquent taxes are Will
unpaid wjth gn abundance of per
sonal property hi sight as to which
he has nevertheless returned under
oath that he had made dllligent
search and failed to find property
out of which to mako the taxes,
then tho animus of the transaction
may be better understood. I did
not resist the first seizure, nor did
my wife, (pistol In hand) so that he
had little trouble in earning ior
himself title of "brave E. J.,"
and thus, having displayed mo and
my case as a frightful example to
warn others of the wrath to come,
and having succeeded, "he made the
second seizure to deepen tho im
pression of the awful doom awaiting
the finally incorridible. For these
seizures I brought suit aver
ring the taking and tho con
version to his use.
The defendant answered, setting
up simply his warrant in justifica
tion. To this I" demurred, and on
the demurrer raised these questions:
1. There can bo no delinquent list
in the bands of the City clerk, since
there has ever been in the general
revenue law this proviso : .'.'When
ever In the collection of any district,
city or local tax which may have
been levied according to law, the
collector is not able to make the tax
by distress and sale of personal pro
perty, and rpal estate is to be sold
for the the sanfto'lt shall be the duty
of the collector of the tax to send
such delinquent list to the County
Treasurer on or before tho fifteenth
day of July of each year, and the
County Treasurer shall receive the
delinquent list and advertise the
saine at the same time he advertises
the sale of real estate for delinquent,
as hereinafter provided, by adding
the amount of such delinquent dis
trict, town, city or local tax to the
amount of delinquent State, county
and other taxes, and shall sell such
lands for the purpose of paying all
sucli delinquent taxes, as hereinafter
directed; and shall credit the proper
district, town, city or locality for the
amount of taxes so collected, which
shall be subject to the order of the
proper collecting officer.7
2. The answer disclosed the tact
that my name does not appear on
any of the delinquent lists.
3. The answer does not state any
year when the lands were delinquent
nor any sum of such delinquency,
not: any description of lands delin
quent 4. It is not shown how the pro
perty was disposed of nor that the
proeeedswere applied to the liquid
ation of any portion' of the delin
As -to 'the 'first' -potatB the court
held that the clerk, always had
means to determine all delinquen
cies, and when I exhibited the
above statute to show that the list
went totally out of his hands and
that there was no provision by
which it ever went back to him,
he read a seetton of the act relating
td eities of the first class, passed
Feb., 1873, to tbe effect that the
cleifcishould keep a duplicate list in
hU office and made this apply to the
many years before.
As to the proposition that I was
entitled to know-how my property
had been disposed of and that ithad
somewhere and somehow, Teen ap
plied to the payment of my tax, he
responded simply, "that makesno
difference." " -5
a mv' demurrer was overruled
and Iwas given 30 days to replyte'
Thus I have endeavored to give
a complete answer to your Inquiry.
These occurences nave auueu turn

doubtless be a calamity if taxes
were not paid, and I think I can
imagine a greater calamity than
even this; and that calamity will
be upon us when the time
nrrivos if it ever does, that
our tribunals of justice shall deny to
the citizens the right to come oeiore
them and invoke their judgement as
to whether the public agent, who is
constraining him to surrender his
substance for the public use, Is doing
so according to the law, and where
those appointed to administer the
law, forgetting that they are simply
the mouth-pieces through which the
law utters ifcelf, shall take counsel
of their caprices or prejudices, or of
any supposed public necessity, in the
determination of rights between the
citizens and the State.

A few days ago the Scotsman
mentioned that a bible bound in calf
and bearing the name of " "William
Sim," a Dundee man, and the date
1830, had been discovered in the
stomach of a codfish. This fact was
remarkable enough, but still more
extraordinary is another circum

reported by the Scotsman. The
very sanie day on which the discov

the deceased Mr. Sim succeeded Tn
obtaining a warrant in the outer
house of tho Court of Session (from

who had gone to sea about 1834, and

A disgraceful piece of mischief la
reported from Berlin, where some
idiot has, it seems, been amusing
himself by poisoning a good many
of the most valuable animals in the
Zoological Gardens. His last1 vic
tims are six bears, two jaugers, two
blaclr panthers, two lions, and a
lynx, all' of which have died, wit
the exception of the male jaguar
and the female panther. These,
however, are not the only losses sus
tained. Within the last few weeks
several valuable camlvora have per
ished, and their death being attrib
uted to feeding on the flesh of horses
possibly sufiering from disease.
The food given to the animals has
since been carefully cooked, so that
willful poisoning appears to be the
only explanation of the recent deaths
among them. The Directors of tho
Zoological Garden Company have
offered a reward of 1,000 thai era for
the apprehension of the miscreant
An equine curiosity arrived in
San Francisco last Tuesday in-the
"Mikado," from Australia. The
name of this remarkable animal is
"Caoutchouc," and he was captured
in tho neighborhood qf the Balloon
Biver, Queensland, When about two
years old. Ho is now about six
years of age, of a pure black, from
the tip of his ears to his hoofs, but
without a single hair on any part of
his body. The cclor Is not unlike
that of a blaok horso very closely
clipped, and tho microscope falls to
detect a blngle halrfrom nose to tall.
He is a gelding, about fifteen hands
high, well made and very compact,
with fine clean legs, powerful fore
arms and thighs, and a clean, blood
ed, but unusually broad liead, from
which sparkles a bright pair of eyes
'beaming with good temper and
docility. His owners, Oat fe Wit
chell, paid a handsome price for
him, but refused 1,500 in tho. colo
nies before leaving for this country.
This freak of nature was examined
by several eminent veterinary' sur.
goons In Australia, and they came
to but one opinion In regard to this
horse, which wa"s that there was no
deception practiced, and that in
reality he was 'born without the
least particle of hair upon him, and
consequently is one of the greatest
curiosities in the way of horseflesh
extant He Is evidently not of the
"woolly horse" breed that was ex
hibited some "years since in New
