Now that we are assured by the
Yellowstone expedition that rich
silver mines exist in the Big Horn
Mountains. We may expect another
exodus from the auriferous to the
argentiferous regions of Montana.
While the Omaha Herald, in
view of coming events, seeks to
pander to our German fellow-citizens,
by lauding Carl Schurz to the
skies, the Democratic newspapers
of Missouri are belaboring the phil
osophical Senator with all the vile
billingsgate at their command.
Governor Fvksas has recently
written and published what pur
ports to be an impartial history of
Nebraska journalism. His Ex
cellency has, however, not yet
heard of a daily paper known as
the Omaha Bee, which happens
just now to have the largest circu
lation of any dally newspaper in
Tire Houso Committee on elec
tions has already taken preliminary
steps toward transplanting the Mor
mon Cannon Apostolic into the
more congenial hot-bed of Poliga
my. The testimony already in
possession of the Committee has
been referred to a sub-Committee,
with instructions to report whether
it will be necessary to summon
other witnesses. Mr. Cannon's
Congressional career will be brief.
It If not thought probable that
the inhuman outrage perpetrated by
the butcher Gonzales upou the Bri
tish Consul at Guetemala will lead
to any complications between
the Governments of Salvador and
Great Britain. The prompt and
condign punishment of Gonzales by
the authorities of Salvador will
doubtless convince the British Cab
inet that they were not to blame for
this terrible outrage.
It is now foreshadowed that
President Grant will order Brooks
to vacate tho Arkansas State Capi
tol to what Mr. Baxter is pleased to
desiguate as the Arkansas Legisla
ture. He might as well recognize
Baxter as tho legal Governor,
since the legislature is exclusively
of Baxter's own make up. Even
if Baxter's proclamation had been
valid, the proceedings of this parti
zan body since It assembled would
condemn it as ah unfair and im
proper tribunal to adjust the pond
Councilman Stephenson's card
in our local columns will bear care
ful digestion. It strikes us that tho
course pursued by our Police Judge
and City Marshal in connection with
the complaint against the Herald
will require a slight explanation.
In the first placo we cannot un
derstand why the complainant
should have been required to guar
antee the costs in a case involving
an alleged violation of the city
ordinances. In the second place
why should the court and marshal
interiose objections to the complaint
and hesitate about serving the
Willi A3i W. Eaton, the Demo
cratic nominee for tho U. S. Sena
torship from Connecticut, is at
present a member of tho Legisla
ture that proposes to elect him.
According to the New York Tribune,
which ought to be a fair criterion
of his merits, Mr. Eaton "is known
outside of tho State chiefly by his
opposition to the war measures of
the Government during the re
bellion. Tho bitierness of his hos
tility and the recklessness of his
utterances made him a conspicuous
figure in State politics, and gave
him a position of leadership which
was invariably disastrous to his
party. His stubbornness of will
and dogged tenacity of purpose,
combined "with a rugged habit of
thought and a cartain fierceness of
self-assertion, impressed the rank
and file of the party with a notion
of great intellectual force, and drew
after him always a formidable fol
lowing. The same qualities con
stantly repelled the more conserva
tive of the party; and it was the
habit of the opposition organs and
orators to make tho principles he
advocated offensive by quoting him
as their exponent. He is to-day, as
for the past twenty years, the best
representative of all that is offensive
and unpopular in Democratic partisanship."
THE CIVIL SERVICE SHAM
According to the official report
of the chief examiner of the civil
service commission, "each man in
the civil service feels that his pro
motion depends chiefly upon his
own efforts, and not upontbe weight
of his political influence, nor the
degree of his own subservience."
Now, with all the respect due to
the honorable examiner of the civil
service, uie jjee is consiruiueu w
pronounce this assertion as a palpa
ble falsehood. In fact, we are
strongly inclined to pronounce the
chief examiner either a knave or a
fool, or both for that matter.
"We need not travel a thousand
miles from Omaha, to prove that
the promotion of employes in the
civil service, has seldom, if ever
anything to do with their "own
efforts," but almost invariably does
depend upon the weight of their po
litical influence, and the degree to
which they are willing to stoop m
in toadying to corrupt, capricious, or
greedy superiors. .Look at the Uni
ted States railway postal service, if
you please, and you will see politi
cal wire pullers and striplings in the
business, promoted over the heads of
men who have faithfully and effici
ciently served for many years.
You will there find one set
of men subjected to Incessant
harrassing and useless examinations
while others are permitted to delib
erately oer-ride this part of tho
civil service rules. If the chief ex
aminer had taken the pains to in
form himself about reform in this
branch, of tho public service
he might have readily dis
covered that promotions depend
very much upon tho numbor and
value of tho contributions toward
tho purchase of silver plate, car
riages, watches, and other presents
to superiors, and very little upon
tho merits of the persons recom
mended for promotion. The Bee
has always favored civil service re
form. It favors it now, but it demands
genuine and not sham reform. Un
til present-taking shall become an
other name for bribe-taking, and bo
punishable as such; until promotion
shall follow merit and seniority in
dependent of favoritism or political
influence; until examinations shall
be conducted impartially and all
classes bo alike subjected to them,
civil service reform will remain a
delusion and a fraud.
Life Among the Lincolnitos.
Crusading, Politics, Billiards,
Journalism and Barristers.
Correspondence of the Bee.
Lincoln, Nebraska, 1
May 13, 1874,
Editor Osiaha Bee: Since
writing you, the cruade has be
come an event of the past, though
yesterday some of the ladies were
out calling; but as no demonstra
tions were made in tho way of
prayer or song, we conclude that
they went simply from habit. The
billiard room, as they say, holds
forth many inducements io the
young and unsophisticated, who,
from visiting them occasionally,
form tho habit of 'spending their
leisure time and loose cliauge over
table and bar. And now It would
seem that fascinating room as
anything fascinating is bound to do
has captured some of the ladies.
Young ladies, too, who are natu
rally .smart: who might become
shining lights in society but for the
fell destroyer. They had seen -its
effects upon us, yet they heeded it
not, and society lias been robbed of
what might have been its brightest
"01 all sad wordi of tongue or pen,
The saddett aro these: we intent Lad be n."
At the recent election for city of
ficers tho vote cast for Marshal
proved a tie, and a new election ha
been ordered, to come off the 19th
of tliis month. So far as we can
learn, both sides are confident of
victory, though wo venture no
opinion further than that the candi
date receiving tho highest number
of votes will win.
Jmprovements of every kind are
being pushed ahead rapidly. Our
citizens have taken a great iutcrest
In setting out trees, while sidewalks
and fences keep many hands busy.
Journalism has also taken a stride,
and Liucolnites are happy over the
establishment of the Evening Blade.
It is edited by Major CuilVey, a
staunch old Republican, and so well
known throughout the State as an
able editor that we need say nothing
upon that point. Sulliee it to say,
however, that the Blade is most
generously supported by our citizen-.
The Journal is hopping over to the
temperance side of the fence. There
are two reasons, we think, for this :
First, tho Blade lias "stolen its
thunder" against tho crusade, or
that "never mind the law" party ;
second, we have seen one of its pro
prietors In private conliau with
"Bro." Alexander several times,
and from their manner, judged that
"f1mr wns sntnotliiiif in fhn
fence," somewhere. And then,
when you see a printer talking with
"Bro." Alexander on the street, in
broad daylight, you may know
there are some inducements. The
Journal is an old stand-by, notwith
standing, and tlie Lincoln people
are proud of its" enterprise, even
though they do lack a little lack
bone in this question.
Tho attempt made by the Omaha
Herald to get up a sensation at the
expense of the University, is looked
upon by our citizens alike with dis
gust and contempt. The wholesale
manner in which their correspond
ent puffs his friends in the faculty,
and frowns upon others, or passes
them by, when, in fact, he knows
but littleabout any of them, learned
as he may be in the legal profession,
is a fair illustration of the manner
in which he treated everything con
nected with the institution. As re
gards the library, we did not under
stand what idea the corresiwudent
intended to convey; whether the
subject matter is cheap, cheap bind
ing, or cheap all round. We guess
he don't know himself. Commence
ment will soon bo here, then let us
see what has been done.
The Lancaster County Bar Asso
ciation held their annual election for
officers last night, and long after
honest people were abed, tlie legal
fraternity made night hideous with
their crusade on wine, ico croam,
etc., in celebration of the event.
We wish it understood that none of
them drank enough to become tip
sy. . Ghlsies.
Favorable reports are received
from the Mount Lincoln mines.

The machinery for the smelting
works at Boulder, has arrived at that
town. The works have oeen com

A new silver discovery has been
made at Rosita, near the Crow tun
nel. Ore taken out two feet below
the surface, shows a value of about
51,100 per ton.
A stock companj-, with a capital
of $50,000, is being organized at
Colorado City, El Paso county, for

sell to colleges, schools of mines, etc.
Tlie work of straightening the
Mmnnoi of tho Arkansas river at
Pueblo, has been commenced. The
channel of tlie Arkansas is not the
only thing about tho Southern me
tropolis that needs straightening.
The erection of smelting works in
tlie Animas district of San Juan
county is being agitated. Dona
tions of ore are pledged from forty
seven mines, amounting altogether
to 305 tons.
It Is reported that there are fifty
mines about Sugar Loat Mountain,
Boulder county, that will pay a
working profit as soon as reduction
works shall be put up within a con
venient distance. A hundred men
are now employed in them.
Bent county has an area of about
3,500 square miles, and a population
of about 4,000. The registered voto
last September was 800. No rain fell
in the county from the first of Sep
tember, 1874, till the 13th of March,
1874, and not over one and a half
inches of snow.
Last winter the proprietors
of the Green Mountain,
one of the richest and best
known silver ore in tho San
Juan region, sent one hundred and
fifty pounds of ore from their mine
to the Haford Copper works in
Swansea, Wales.' The return just
received shows the yield to have
been: Silver, 717 oz; gold, 0.18 oz;
