TliLs partizail verdict has surprised
nobody. People who have watched
the proceedings of the Council since
its organization had long since bo
come convinced that the Demo
cratic majority was from the outset
determined to ignore precedents
and override all legal barriers by
the arbitrary uso of numerical force.
The indifference that characterized
their movements during the read
ing of the testimony and the argu
ments of counsel furniMied sufficient
proof that the verdict was a foregone
conclusion. The reading of Vaude
grift's scarlet letter was merely a
weak subterfuge to afford weak
ftneed demagogues a shadow of ex
cuse to Jean ujkjii. And now we
cheerfully accept, this verdict as a
victory (?) for which the people of
Omaha and Douglas, county will
hold the Democracy to a strict ac
countability. Let it be recorded
Jhat this party, clothed with brief
And accidental power, has resorted
to tho jno-.t disgraceful subterfuges
for tho sake of holding their grip
upon a paltry pfllce.
Let it ever hs remembered that
the Democracy have, through
their representatives in the Omaha
City Council, put a premium on
fraud and corruption by upholding
a man who at tho most favorable
Aspect of the cae by the plae of
his own counsel could only claim
ins election by bogus tickets, palni
cd off ou unsuspecting Republicans.
Keep it beforo the peoplo that John
Baumer has boen temporarily

was legitimately elected by a
tribunal blinded by "partizau
tnl spurred on by a Bourbon organ
thai never has dared to denounce
fraud and corruption, excepting in
the camp of the opposition.
Supio-o the Republican Legis
lature of Nebraska had undertaken
lo uphold eorrupt Governors and
and State oflicers by main force of
numbers, would not these Demo
cratic Daniels have cited tho Re
publican party to judgment before
the people? Viewing the case from
this standpoint we arc willing to
trust Judge Lake and the people
with the final verdict.
THE SCAELET LETTER.
What would bo thought of a
judge -who, after a case had closed
and the jury was about to retire,
should attempt to inlluencc their
verdict by introducing a letter from
an important witness denying the
veracity of his verbal testimony?
Would not such action justly sub
ject him to impeachment and re
moval from itho bench? And this
is precisely what President Gibson,
acting iu a judicial capacity, "was
guilty of whence introduced Van
dergift's scarlet letter to the Council.
The reading of the testimony had
been concluded, the counsel of con
testants had closed their arguments,
and tho motion to declare Johnston
duly elected liad.been ordered to a
vote. It was a breach of parlia
mentary usage to interpose any
other matter while the order was
pending. It was a breach of judicial
decorum which Mr. Gibson himself
acknowledged when he admonished
m Counciimen not to be influenced by
tho contents of that letter. Why
then did ho introduce it at that
If we take Mr. Gibson at his own
word it was dem to ic3stablish Mr.
Johnston'srcharacter. "Could not
that have been done just as readily
after the Council had recorded their
verdict ? Does not the interposition
of the letter prove that he did want
Counciimen influenced by the let
ter? And now let us ask in all
candor how much of the Indelible
stain that rests upon Johnston's
character by Vandergrift's sworn
testimony hasf this letter wiped out ?
Does any sane'man in Omaha be
lieve that Vandergrift wrote this
letter of his own free will and ac
cord without inducements? Was
not Vandergrift penniless, destitute,
and without employment in this
city last week, andwho furnished
the money for his transportation to

parent thimble-rig "more than over

sober when the First Ward ballots
were being counted, we can per
sonally verify on oath, and a dozen
unimpeachable witnesses would do
the samo thing. Again, if Vandr
grift had been actuated by revenge
in his damaging testimony against
Johnston, would it have
been necessary to send an
officer four times after him and
keep a guard over him before he
could be induced to testify? Does
anybody suppose he could have es
caped,the searching cross-examination
of Johnston's attorney if his
allegations had".been invented for
the occasion ? If this scarlet letter,
penned by Vandergrift but not
sworn to, is true, and Vandergift's
sworn testimony is false, why did
Johnston, on oath, after listening
to that testimony, say that ho did
not think Vauderglft would swear
If this scarlet letter was not a very
clumsy bait for gudgeons to .bite at
how came it that Councilman
Stepheason knew when the letter
was read in Council that Vander
gift had vamoosed? Instead of
restoring Johnston into public con
fidence this letter stamps him as a
ounning political trickster, who
would resort to every dovco to keep
his hold on office. It drives the
last nail Inton his political coffin.
VOICE FROM LONE TREE.
Lose Tree, Nob., 1
May 9, 1874. J
Again we have had an exciting
day. A. Grange council has been in
session, and the County Agricultu
ral Society. Nothing of importance
transpired in either, as the all im
portant subject of timber stealing
was on everybody's mind. You
sec it had boen ascertained to a-cer-tainty,
that tho TJ, H, grandjury
were considering the matter, and
the principal actors, or those that
have from five to ton years of fuel
on hand, are rather uneasy. A meot
lng -had been called at the Court
House, to devise means for protec
tion or aid, in case any of them got
into trouble. The principal thieves
were present, and such doleful
countenances, I have scarcely ever
seen. Horace Allen was chosen
Chairman, and N. R. Penniger,
Hon. W. H. Webster addressed
the meeting at length, advising the
organization he said that nearly all
were guilty, ami tljat means should
be taken to fix the matiur up, ejtljer
through the Indian Department or
through our members in Congress.
He favored a secret society whereby
every member should obligate him
self to help with money or other
wise those who should get into any
trouble. Others thought the least
said tho better, and advised him to
quit until moro news pould be as
certained from Omaha. A Com
mittee was finally chosen, consist
ing of seven, to frame a plan and to
draft a petition to the U. P.R.R.,
asking them to reduce freight on
road. Tho Committee consisted of
the following gentlemen:
C. E. Brown, Rev. John M.
Dressier, W. H. Webster, T. J.
Sparks, Judge Brand, W. A. .Porter
and Rev. J. S. Donaldson, the com
mittee, retired, and pending their
action a recess was taken, during
which a telegram was received
L from one of the boys in Omaha ad
vising tuem to go slow; so the
meeting once more camo to order,
the committee called in, and after
some consultation adjourned, to
m eet Frida3. Later. The boys have
all got back, and report no danger,
and all are happy.
They say the Grand Jury only
asked them about those who had
largo quantities of timber, and those
that had sold, and that they sup
posed there was no saving them,
but on a final vote the jury stood 14
for indicting and 9 for acquittal. So
we are safe at least for this time and
hope for all tiine. The timber is
all cut now and thero will bo no
danger hereafter until moro grows.
The weather is fine. We have
had some rain and prospects for
more. Crops look well, and as a
general thing farmers are ahead
with their work. Those that have
gone to Omaha have had their work
done by those at home working
harder. You see this matter had
been anticipated, ami all were pre
pared. Our town is looking up again. A
new firm have started in the dry
goods and grocery line, and steps
taken for a bridge across the Platte.
