cry of the New York Democracy
for the coming campaign, is to be
"anybody to beat Dlx." That cry
will be In full keeping with tho
past record of the Bourbons.
All the leading Bourbon organs
in this country have repeatedly ad
mitted that General Dlx was ono of
the best Governors New York has
ever had, and that is probably the
reason why they are eo very anx
ious to beat him with "any body."
The Herald again assails Coun
cilman Stephenson in a very scur
rillous manner for doing wnat he
conscientiously believed to have
been his duty. Now, instead of
condemning Mr." Stephenson .the
Herald ought to give him credit for
consistency, firmness and indepen
dence in seeking to compel the rigid
and impartial enforcement of a good
'law. Mr. Stephenson is not sup
posed to be a lawyer, and if ho has
committed an error in judgment

According to the Lincoln Journal
there was a meeting of a few prom
inent "Western Nebraskans in that
city Tuesday under General Vif
quain's call. It appears, however,
tho General's proposition for imme
diate re-apportionment did not meet
with much favor.
The convention, if such it might
be called, evidently coincided with
the Bee in considering this scheme
as decidedly impractical. Tho sub
stance of their views is, however,
embodied in a resolution requesting
Governor Furnas to call an extra
session of tho Legislature at as early
day as possible after the October
election to provide for a constitu
tional convention, and to make a
now apportionment of the State up
on which to elect delegates to said
The Bek will not discuss that
proposition now, but we may re
in&rk incidentally that tho appor

Omaha aspires to become the me
tropolis of the Missouri Valley, and
her aspirations might and could be
realized, were It not for tho fact that
her citizens place too much reliance
upon natural advantages.
Instead of developing theso natu
ral advantages by all tho artificial
means at their command, these be
lievers in Omaha's great destiny,
set like so many opium eating
Turks, enveloped in the illusive but
enchanting cloud land, where mag
ic air ca?lle are built and precious
Meantime wide-awake and ener
getic rivals, without natural advan
tages, are industriously applying
their artificial resources in building
up a profitable commerce and con
centrating their capital in home
While Nebraska has been making
unprecedented strides in wealth and
population during tho past five
years, Omaha has stupidly permitted
a great portion of the State's com
merce to pass through the hands of
the merchants of Kansas City and
St. Joseph in the south, and Sioux
CityJnthe north. Instead of con
centrating the great network of
Nebraska railways at this focal
poiut by judicious encouragement
and skilled maneuvering, Oma
ha has been content to wrestle
for the initial terminus of the
Union Pacific which was prac
tically insignificant in commercial
value, when compared with the ad-
vantages to be derived from rail-
mnda that Denetrate the Valleys of I
the Elkhorn, Niobrara, Blue, and
Instead of encouraging and aid
ing the settlement of the country
surrounding Omaha our capitalists
have wasted their energies and re
sources in wild-cat mining specula
tions in Utah and Nevada.
Instead of opening roads through
Douglas county,and building bridges
across the Platte, they have been
opening and building roads down in
Texas. Instead f encouraging
home manufactures and home in
dustry by liberal patronage and con
tributions, they have sent their
money abroad for castings, wooden
ware, implements, furniture, carria
ges, carpets and clothing.
Instead of inaugurating a system
of public improvements, such as
paving, macademizing, sewerage,
and water-works, Omaha has inau
gurated a system of public stagna
tion on the clo-noming pian. -u
wonder the retail trade is dull, and
workingmen are out of employment.
If Omaha wants to keep pace
with other cities in the west; if she
wants to retain her commercial
supremacy in Nebraska, she must
abandon this do nothing policy.
She must shake off the blightning
rule of the old fogies, and push her
advantages to their legitimate frui
tion. She cannot afford to remain
contented with mere transfer pick
ings, and roads from nowhem to no
where. We must have railway out
lets to the northern and southern
border, and we must open an outlet
for the vast granaries in Central Ne
It would be far better to add an
other million to our public debt for
the purpose of building up a city
than to waste our splendid opportu
nities and subside into a mere vil
lage. THE TRUNK RAILROAD.
Dr. Converse Says it will be Built
From the Lincoln Blade May 12 J
Some two years ago one of the
most enthusiastic meetings ever
held in the State took place at the
Capitol, to give expression to public
sentiment touching tho importance
of the speedy construction of the
Trunk It. R. i". c, a railroad running
up and down the Missouri River in
Nebraska. At that meeting a large
delegation was appointed to go to
St. Louis, and awaken an Interest
there in the construction of said
thoroughfare, since when but very
little has been heard relative to the
project save in the several counties
which said road promised to pene
trate. Yesterday we had an interview
with Dr. Converse, in which he as
sured us that the prospectsattending
the project were now quite flattering
and that the interests which ho
represented had been quite busy for
some time In endeavoring to enlist
such aid as would not only secure
the construction - of the road but
equip and run it in first-class shape
when built, and he Is in possession
of assurances in writing from the
magnates of the North Missouri
Railroad that they will extend the
We feel aasured that this road
will pay from the first day it oper
ates, and we know that it will effect
more for tho interests of the State
than any real highway now in op
eration. At present the great ma
jority of Westward bound passen
gers do not touch Nebraska until
they reach Omaha, thus hiding
from the vision of such the most
beautiful and captivating iortions
of the State. This route will invite
travel from the Missouri and Iowa
side, and enable tourists to feast
their eyes upon theolder f-ettled por
tions of our State as they journey.
We have long taken an aqtive
interest in this project and appreci
ate how earnestly tho people of the
counties bordering on the Missouri
River have longed to see the Trunk
a fixed fact. The -word or promise
has long and oft been held to their
ears only to be broken to their hopes,
and we trust that this time they
will not bo deceived. Tho Blade
will not lose sight of the interest
indicated, and any developments
relating thereto will find speedy Is
suance through its columns.
Sioux City and
A meeting of the people interest
ed in the early completion of tho
Sioux City and Kearney Railroad is
soon to be called at Coumbus, that
being the most accessible point for
a majority of the counties lying
north of tills place. Tho meeting
will be held about the 10th of June,
and it is expected that each county
through which the contemplated
road is to run will bo fully repre
sented and that definite action will
be taken to put the enterprise upon
a sound and certain basis.
The distance from Sioux City to
Kearney is not far from one hun
dred and ninety miles, a few miles
less than tho distance from Kear
ney to Omaha, and the country be
tween tho two points js not excelled
In richness of soil and beauty of
surfaoe by any in the Garden State.
This vast country, drained by the
Loups and their tributaries, and
and now so rapidly filling up with
settlers, must have an outlet in the
shape of a railroad for the transpor
tation of surplus grain and stock
now so rapidly accumulating. The i
days are past even in this
far off "desert," when the farmer
and stock raiser are willing to trans
port grain and stock by wagon and
the hoof to a distant market. The
railroad must bring a market near
er to tho grain and grazing fields, or
the earnings of both are swallowed
up in such slow and uncertain
modes of transportation, to say
nothing of the Inconvenience of liv
ing from thirty to fifty miles away
from a railroad.
A railroad from Sioux City to
Kearney would place all tho coun
try within a reasonable distance
to tho same within easy reach of
the best market in the country.
The people;eonliguous to the road
would be in direct communication
with Chicago via Sioux City or
Kearney, and would also be in di
rect communication with the great
lumber markets 6f Minnesota via
St. Paul and Sioux City railroad;
and tho Southern markets of
St Joseph and St Louis via Kear
ney. The road as soou as. com
pleted assume the importance of a
trunk line and furnish every advan
tage afforded by the best roads of
the country. Tho people of the
various counties through which
the road is to run are alive to the
importance of the enterprise and
stand ready to do their duty, and it
only needs determined action upon
the part of the incorporations to in
sure an early completion of the

story on "an engineer running on

at St Mary's Mission, the engineer
saw a young sqaw, with hor pap

on the platform. "Have you got a
little Indian there ?" said tho driver
of the iron horse. "No," said she,

Tho habit of hanging mackerel on

lato in tho evening, and going
around back of the house bo as not
to disturb the folks, they sat down
on the stoop to think. During the
process she leaned her head, in her
new sprint; hat, against the house,
and became absorbed in the stars
and other improvements, while he
tenderly eyed his boots. About a
half hour was spent in this profita
ble occupation, when the young
man felt something trickle down
his neck. "Don't weep, Julia," he
softly murmured. "I ain't,"
she said, surprised. He looked
up, and his 030 rested on an oozy
substance back of her head. "What
is that on the back of your hat?"
he cried. She jumped up at this in
terrogation, and instjctivoly placing
her hand on the back of her head,
drew it away again full of an un
pleasantly flavored slime. With a
shriek of rage and passion the in
furiated girl tore the mackerel from
tho nail, aud trampled it beneath
her feet, while she snatched off her
hat and tore it in shreds with her
livid fingers. The horror-stricken

Spencer F. Baird, in a letter to
the Forest and Stream, says that at
present the theory in regard to the
shad is, that instead of migrating up
the coast from south to north in the
spring and uacK ugam m uicwu,
they simply spend their oceanic, life
in the seas quite adjacent to the riv
ers where born, and return to.them
in the proper season.
There are at present 80,000 lako
trout at the State hatching house,

the same establishment 150,000 Cal

tui ned into the streams. One hun
dred and fifty thousand Kennebec
salmon are in process of hatching,"
and as soon as of fitting size will be
similarly disposed of. The com
missioners report 2,700,000 as the
product of the young shad hatched
at Marietta last year.
It is illegal tokill a trout in Mad
ison county, N. Y., and the penalty
is 25. The law is temporary in
its operations, however and will ex
pire by limitation next year. If
the streams of Onondaga County
were similarly protected until the
small fry which anglers are killing
could attain proper size it would be
an advantage. Without more pro
tection the time will soon come
when no trout can be found in Cen
tral New York.
Three or fouryears since tho Miss
issippi river and some of its tributa
ries were stocked with young shad,
under the direction of Seth Green,
povernment commissioner, but un
til now we have heard of none of
them being seea. Last Tuesday
evening, however, Mr. Holmes, J.
P. and Bidwell Gage, and William
Lyall, while out fishing with a gill
net, captured what was said by those
thoroughly familiar with this spe
cies of fish to have been a shad. It
was fourteen inches long, and
weighed about two pounds. It
probably came from the stock placed
in the river b3' artificial means.

Carpenter's "lady Friend" in the
One day during the special session
of 1871 a sweltering day in June
Carpenter had made a speech on
the Alabama treaty, and had como
home to his obsoure lodgings on the
comer of F and Thirteenth streets,
tired., mad, and out of breath. Fah
renheit marked 100 in the shade.
The air was still and skimmered
over the hot brick pavements as an
oven. It was not a day for good
nature. Matt climbed up tho rick
ety stairway that leads to his rooms,
stripped off coat, vest, collar, and
boots, and laid down on the lounge
to smoke a cigar incidentally to go
"Cling! eling! cling!" went his
"Dsmme," says Matt, spitefully,
"ran't they give a fellow a minute's
peace ? Come in I come in !"
Tho visitor was a fine decent
owld Irish woman, between fifty
and sixty. She looked tired and
worn. She had walked into town
from somewhere up in Maryland
about twenty miles,
"And is this Sinator Carpinter,
Lord bliss him?" she inquired.
"Yes, madam; can I do anything
for you?" responded the "Sinator,"
not in the blandest tones.
"Maybe ye might," said the
woman. "You see, Sinator, I am
a pool Irish woman. Me husband
got sick in the war, and he niver
has been able to-do much since, and
I've had a hard time of it to get
along wid all the doctor's bills to

"Well, well, what has all this

I want,and they towld me that Sin
ator Carpinter was a good-hearted
man, and if I wint and told him me
story he wudhelp me to get a place
in the Treasury Department"
"Treasury Department !" broke
out the astounded Senator, "what
the can you do in the Treasury
Department?" and he began either
to imagine that the woman was
crazy or that somo .heartless Joker
had sent her to him.
"What can I do in the treasury
department, is it ? What can I do ?-
Why, scruo; sctud me noors; wu
else?" " '
"Scrub,4' said Matt; "well nereis
richness! An old Irishwoman
seeking senatorial influence to get a
job of scrubbing ! Just you wait till
I pull on my boots, and put on my
hat my good woman, and I'll see
what can be done for you."
And in about five minutes the
Wisconsin orator, in his shirt
sleeves, was on his way to the tem
ple of the exchequer with his pro
tegee. The Senatorial- influence
was potent, and if you call at the
Treasury Department and inquire
for the woman who holds her posi
tion at the request of Matt Carpen
ter they will show you a fine dacent
owld Irishwoman, with gray hair
and wrinkled face, who mops the
floors and scrubs the stairways, and
she is Matt Carpenter's 'lady friend'
there. There .may be something
improper, but it isn't worth men
