E. EOSEWATEE. Publisher
GovEitxon Fcuxas and his staff
seem to be out of luck. That bill to
issue muskets to the State of Ne
braska still hangs lire in Con
gress. The new Indian bill has been
amended to as to prohibit federal
federal officers from entering into
contracts with any Indian chief or
tribes, and also toaboliah the Indian
Superintendents in several Territo
ries. TnE Herald seeks to shield Ex
City Clerk Kitton, against the just
charge of deliberate lawlcssnes, by
pleading technicalities. The jour
nal in question alleges that Kitton
removed the ballot boxos out of his
office, where the law directed them
to be kept, at the Instance of gentle
men appointed to recount the bal
lots. Now we deny first, that any
body was appointed to recount the
ballots, and second that Mr. Kitton
acted at anybody's Instance except
by the request of Mr. Johnson. The
testimony in this ca-o will bear us
out in these assertions.
Mr. Kitton was simply cited as a
witness. Mr. Johnson's attorney
put the question to him, whether he
would produce the ballot boxes, and
lie promptly replied he would. Mr.
Baumer's counsel objected and
pointed out the law, and Kitton
insisted upon taking tho law
into his own hands. And now we
w ould bepleased to have tho Herald,
Mr. Kitton's champion, to answor
a few questions: "Why did Mr.
Kitton exhibit such extraordinary
nnxiety to produce .those ballot
boxes hi spite of the legal objections?
"Why was he excited when he
opened the first box? and what
made his hands tremble like
those of an Octogenarian when he
commenced to handle the contents?
Why was Mr. Kitton so excited all
dayyesterday, and what made him
net 6o queer during the Council pro
ceedings last evening? Did he have
to stimulate his nerves to keep up
his part of the ierformance and
what could have produced such a
change on him that many persons
who witnessed his actions at the
organization of the new Council ex
pressed suspicious that he had lost
Assuming that Mr. Kitton had a
right to hold the keys of the Clerk's
office after his successor had been
ho could keep personal control over
the ballot boxes until after the slow
process of investigation and recount
was over? Assuming that Mr. Kit
ton acted wisely and properly in
sealing the key holes of the ballot
boxes and stationing a policeman
In front of his office door to
prevent his successor from
tampering with the ballots, why did
he not take similar precautions im
mediately after the ballots came into
his owu possession ? Does not the
peculiar discrepancy in the second
ward count iook as if somebody had
been tampering with those ballots
while Mr. Kitton had charge of
them, aud does not his conduct give
some semblance of suspicion that he
has taken more than a passing inter
eat in thefinal decision of this matter?
A DANGEROUS PRECEDENT.
Our reorganized City Council has
we fear set a very dangerous pre
cedent by their action upon the
City Treasurership. We apprehend
this action is mainly du to a mis
conception by the members of
then-duties and functions. While
City Councils are perpetual legisla
tive bodies the process of annual re
organization renders each Council
perfectly independent of its pre
decessor. In other word the Council just
organized, is as distinct from tho
old Council, as Is the present Legis
ture from the Legislature of 1871.
In acting officially upon any sub
ject, the members of the present
Council are not to be Influenced by
their personal observations, or expe
rience in any former council, but
they must in all cases be
governed by the official record.
Neither partizanship, personal
prejudice or outride pressure should
for a moment swerve them from
their sworn obligations of impartial
action. Tlie very first duty of the
reorganized Concil, was to examine
the bonds presented by the various
The charter declares who these
officers are, and the official canvass
made in pursuance of the 'charter
declares who was elected to
each respective office. That record
was to be the sole guide of the
Council, and pa quibbling about
a contest in progress outside of the
Council could be permitted to inter-
vse- Tlie rrima fac5e evidcnc
according to the journal of the last
Council, is that John Baunier was
duly elected Treasurer. When
Baumer presented his bond for ap
proval the Council kad no right to
plead ignorance as to who was
elected, but they were bound to ex
amine his bond, and if found suffix
cient to approve it. What right
have they to know anything about
testimony now being taken
in the Johnson-Baumer case
before that testimony is
officially placed before them for con
sideration? If the Democratic ma
jority of the Council could arrogate
to themselves the right to ignore the
official canvassers in one case,
could they not do so with equal pro
priety in another case ? How did
they know that Chase was elected
Mayor, unless they came- to that
knowledge by the record.
Looking upon the issue from
the legal standpoint, wc must say
that this is a very dangerous pre
cedent for any political party to
establish. The first principle of the
Republican form of government is,
that popular majorities rule. The
next and equally important princi
ple is, submission to the decision of
popular majorities. Now, admit
ting for the sake of ar
gument, that Johnson did
receive more votes than were
awarded to him by the Judges of
election, he has his legal remedy.
While seeking to establish his
claims to that office he has no right
to refuse peaceable possession of his
office to the person that was de
clared duly elected by the official
canvassers. When the tribunal that
renders final decision in his case de
clares him properly elected, he will
have the right to resume the office.
Supposing the taking of testimony
should continue forsixmontlis, and
at the end of that time Baumer is
found properly elected, who will
compensate him for tho time lost ?
We have no reason to doubt that
our position in this instance will be
sustained by Judge Lake. It is
sustained by the only precedent on
record in this city in the case of
ltosewater vs. House.
The Gounp'l was at that time Re
publican. The official canvasogave
a majority to tho Democratic candi
date for City Engineer. Although a
notice of contest had be-on served,
the Council ordered the CIrk to
issue the certificate to Mr. Hou?,
and vybea that gentleman presented
his bond it was promptly approved
without prejudica to the contestants.
Since writing this artiole we learn
through the Nebraska City papers
that Judge Gaunt has decided the
case of Tuxbury, referrod to In our
last issue, by issuing a writ of man
damus that compelled their City
Council to issue a certificate of elec
tion to Tuxbury, notwithstanding
the fact that his opponent contests
his election and demands a recount.
There is cheating in all trades,
but ours; and there are hypocrites
in every church, hut ours. If there
arc rascally middlemen, why should
there not also be selfish, greedy,
and corrupt Grangers? Human
nature Is the same everywhere, an3
the grangecannot expect exemp
tion from its laws. We indulge
in these reflections after perusing
the just complaint of Mr.
Prince against Allen Root.
We take it for granted that men
are not to be judged by their profes
sions, but by their acts. Mr. Root's
actions give tho llo to his profes
sions, and stamp him as unworthy
of the important trusts confided to
him by the Douglas County Grang
ers. While he professes to
bo actuated by pure motives,
he proves to be Impelled by a desire
to defraud a poor mechanic out of
his just dus. While he pleads
against lawyers and advocates ar
bitration, he Is the very first man
to drag others into a
Justcics Court. While he pro
fessses great friendship for working
men, he is the very man that seeks
to deprive them of their rights.
If the Grangers of Douglas coun
ty want to make a creditable im
pression upon the citizens, of Omaha,
they will have to discard such lead
ers as Mr. Root.

there is a negro girl in Brucetown
about nine years of age whose mem

her repeat, word for word, what he
had read from the paper, though
twenty-four hours had intervened.
After this he tested her memory
frequently, and has found her cap

respects does not seem at all above,

In Charleston, recently, a large
dog gave chase to a poor little black
and tan, whose hind leg had been
injured, but, failing to overtake
him, turned about and trotted slow
ly back. In a short time the small
dog returned, followed by a large
Newfoundland, who, upon reaching
the corner, "seemed to be looking
for something," when the little dog
gave two or three sharp barks, as
much as to say, "That's the dog who
chased me," at the same time indi
cating by his actions the large black
dog, who was then at some distance.
Whereupon the little dog's ally im
mediately attacked and severely
punished tho aggressor, who was
glad enough to try the swiftness of
his feet for safety. After this little
affair the small dog and his friend
returned down the street, apparent
lj much pleased with their part of
the late transaction. How did the

and in that attitude measure about
four feet in height. They construct
no habitations, form no families,
scarcely associate together, sleep in
caves, feed on snakes and vermin,
on ants' eggs, and on each other.
They cannot be tamed or forced to
any labor, and are hunted and shot
among the trees like the great
gorilla, of which they are a stunted
copy. When captured alive ono

Mr. J. R. Brockington, of Black
Mingo, Williamsburg county, is re

story: "A dog belonging to a
colored man, while trying to catch
a large and ferocious hog, was cut
or bit by the hog on the left side
just below the ribs, and out of the
orifice made by the hog's teeth
crawlsd two large snakes. Ono was
alive and apparently in perfect
health. The other was severed or
cut in two by the hog's teeth, and
of course was dead. The color was
bright red, striped with blue inter
mixed. They were about three feet
six inobes long and two inohes In
circumference. They were snakes
in every particular. The dog is
living and in its usual condition."

looked narrowly at tho Prince to ob
