Sioux City Journal.
The Omaha Bee not only claims
the largest circulation of anj- daily
newspaper published in Nebraska,
but it stands ready to back and
prove its claim that its daily circula
tion exceeds by at least five hun
dred, the daily circulation of any
other of its Nebraska contempora
ries. Our "Washington advices indicate
an early adjournment of Congress.
At the Republican Senatorial Cau
cus, held Monday, it was agreed to
pass Senator Edmund's resolution
to fix the day for 'sine die adjourn
ment to June 22d. ThiB virtually
determines the question for the Sen
ate. Whether the House will agree
to this proposition remains, howev
er, to be seen. That the passage of
such a resolution would expedite
the business before Congress very
materially, is admitted on all hands.
SOKE STUBBORS FACTS.
We regret exceedingly that the
thirteen oppressed and down-trodden
editors of the Omaha Union
have taken umbrage at the Bee's
blunt, but timely warning to the
Industrial classes against designing
political bummers and rascally
impostors who are seeking to
become tho loaders of indus
Htrial reform hereabouts. It
kas'always been our aim to main
tain undisturbed harmony between
the Bee and its brilliant reliable,
and prosperous contemporary. This
will continue to be our policy, even
If the Union shall hereafter, as here
tofore, perist in misrepresenting us.
The thirteen editors of the Union
seem, however, to labor under a
very serious misapprehension that
the Bee would always overlook
their wilful misrepresentation of its
record. An article in the last num
ber of tho Union seems to demand
prompt contradiction, and we pro
pose to do so wifh stubborn facts.
In order to controvert the false
hoods sought to be palmed oil as
facts by our evening contemporary
we propose to reproduce and dis
prove each charge separately.
Charge I. TheBEEdid,aboutfour
months since, combine with two
other powerful printing houses in
the city of Omaha for the purpose
of breaking down the Printer's
Union, and made public boast of the
fact The organization is for mutual
improvement and protection,

with two other powerful printing
houses of Omaha to resist the arro
gant and oppressive assumptions of
a combination that was originally
organized for improvement and pro
tection, and had finally degenerated
into an organization for tyranny
In joining its morning contem
poraries, the Bee simply obeyed the
natural instinct of self preservation.
The Union lias time and again
charged the Bate with mercenary
motives in this connection. Jt has
charged thatliosewater sold out hi
printers for the purpose of getting
into the Associated Press monopoly.
This infamous falsehood has long
since been exploded.
Wot only has Kosewater been been
kept out of the Associated Press, but
the Union hs been stealthily en
joying the privilege of that wicked
monopoly! "Who is combined with
Balcombe and Miller now?
Everybody in this community is
familiar; with the appeal of tho thir
teen editors for sympathy and sup
port on the ground of the terrible
oppression practiced upon them by
"We have been repeatedly assured
that the striking printers could not
possibly work at the starvation rates
offered them by their tyrannical
task-masters. This falsehood also
has been exploded by tli fact that
the scale of prices recently fixed by
the Union is lower than the rates
nowpaid by the Bee.
Why is this thus, and why do
these -starvation patriots seek to

Now about that monster Bosewater
and his cruelties to workingmen.
Here is a letter which reached us
this morning :
Galena, HI., May 1C, '74.
E. Bosewater, Esg., Omaha, Kelt.:
Dear Sir Having been employ
in your office for the past two years,
I wish to take this opportunity to
thank you for the many favors re
ceived at your hands, and at the
same time to express my disgust for
acting as foolish as I did at the time
of the strike. I have often since
thought of the treatment I received
at their hands, (Union men,) and of
my ingratitude toward you for your
kindness. It has proved a lesson to
me which I shall not very soon for
get. I have since lost time and
money In leaving your office. I
feel that I have lost the best situa
tion I ever had. I remain,
Very respectfully yours,

Charge II. The Bke has made
persistent and scurrilous attacks up
on the co-operative unions being
organized in this eity, and the men
who are members of the same.
Reply The Bee has never made,
scurrilous attacks upon working
men's uions, nor upon their leaders,
but tho Bee has warned working
men against designing soallawags

The time is not very distant
when workingmen will be forced to

in advising them to keep away

The fourth charge substantially
denounces the Bee as a monopoly
organ, because it enjoys a portion of
the Union Pacific patronage. The
silliness of this assumption will be
come self-evident when it is borne
in mind that the Bee is the onlyjour
nal in Omaha thai has at all times
dared to tell the truth about the
Union Pacific and all other railway
monopolies. The Bee is the only
paper in Omaha that dared to open
ly advocate the passage of Judge
Crounse's railroad tax law
and all the patronage in the coun
try could not change its course. In
conclusion we would remark, if the
Union is a true representative of the
industrial classes, why does it coun
tenance and uphold the deceptive
trickery which certain political
bummers in these parts are resort
ing to in the name of industry,
when it is well known that their

into a support of their nefarious
The ministerial crisis in France
still continues. The conflicting ele

a city of Kings, while Paris is, and

And now it transpires that the
American Prison Congress that was
in session at St Louis last week has
adjourned without arriving at any
practical conclusions about prison
reform. The St Louis Globe in an
able review of the proceeding of the
prison reformers asks:
"What positive, tangible good
has the Prison Congress effected?
There has been much relation of in
dividual experiences by prison war
dens and chaplains, and their narr
tiveswere entertaining. But this

day throughout the year to fashion
able audiences, it would effect prison
reform. Something more substan

society as well as the criminal, the

is demanded. To determine the
rights and obligations of these two
parties, sympathy, however glow

There is one question which the
congress seems to have utterlyover

There is one very decided change

years comparatively short "waists,"

Spirit of the State Press.
BRING OUT YOUR CANDIDATES.
Two or three papers of the State
have begun to trot out candidates
for the respective offices to be filled
at the fall election,- and also candi
dates for the empty chair that Tip
ton rattles around in, in the United
States Senate. The North Platte
Enterprise speaks favorably of Hon.
C. Barton for an exalted position,
while the Columbus Journal, like a
gallant war-horse, snuffs the battle
from afar and intimates that that
honorable gentleman's hands are
not as clean as they ought to be,
and that his record is not spotless.
Perhaps the Journal man is preju
diced and therefore not an impar
tial judge of Mr. Barton's quali
fications, ability or record.
But whether these insinuations are
true or not, the people and the State
will be gainers in the criticism of
candidates. If any paper or locality
has any candidate for any office,
we say trot him out. It is a good
time now to polish and rub down

There is one thing certain: The

GENERAL SHERMAN'S NEBRASKA
We are glad to hear that Mr.
Crounse's Bill gets along so nicely
in Congress, and believe he will do
what he can to puaU it through. As
the Bee's "practioal example" is
soirowhat lame we desire to correct
it The Bee intimates that iuas
much as the U. P. R. R. refused to
submit to taxation, their lands were
not taxed. This is not the case.
The lands are still taxed as if the
Company had always paid, and Ue
resident and, noil-resident land
owijers pay no moro tax than if the
U, P, never questioned the legality
of the tax. If tho Supreme Court
of the United States should decide

OMAHA AND THE TRUNK ROAD.
We notice that the Omaha papers
are talking Trunk railroad again.
The Republican says it ought to be
built this summer, shows that it
would pay from the beginning, and
calls on the commercial rrieri of St.
L)ujs to encourage the enterprise of
making a direct thoroughfare be
tween the rich agricultural regions
of Nebraska and that city. The
people of Brownville and Nemaha
county are sick and tired of hearing
the promises, made but to be broken,
of those who have been assuming
to operate in constructing the Trunk
road. They have lost J1 confidence
in thoe men, and all hope of receiv
ing tho road through their manage
ment, and are ready to encourage
any new company who will take
hold of the matter in a way that
will imbue them with a hope of its
speedy construction. We hope the
city of Omaha will agitate the mat
ter until something tangible is con
summated, LINCOLN AND THE STATE FAIR.
The Lincoln Journal is at present
engaged in white-washing over
Lincoln's rival district fair. -It says
if two or three counties wish to join
together jn a district fair it is all
right So it is. But an attempt to
usurp the patronage of the entire
South Platte in a district fair held
in the interest of an unsuccessful
city in the competition for the loca
tion of the State fair is not all right,
and we trust that the farmers of
NebraskajWlll use every endeavor to
make the one laudable fair project,
the fair at Omaha a grand suc
cess, despite of the opposition of dis
affected Lincoln. Sutton, Clay Co.
WHY TRADE IS DULL IN OMAHA.
" At present, we are told, that the
retail business here is rather dull,
but we begin to fear that the whole
sale trade fares likewise. One tiling
we feel Omaha wants, and that is

terest is beyond our conception.
Had she, tho North Western road

would be cheap enough to build
with, and her old wooden buildings

sidewalks would soon disappear, to

to hear us claim that our coal fields
are a decided success, and when we
claim that our coal can be laid down
at from five to six dollars per ton, it
looks unreasonable, nevertheless it
is true and the sooner this place
realizes it the better for them. Da

DOCTOR JOHNSTON AS A MONOPOLY
Mr. Harrison Johnston and two
or three of his friends came down
from Omaha last Saturday evening
for the purpose of organizing an or
der of tho "Co-operative Union of
Farmers and Mechanics." We have
been unable to find out just what
was done by the gentlemen, but
think they did not organize a socie
ty. Why, we cannot understand.
But it is evident to us that the
country (especially Nebraska)
should sustain thirty or forty differ
ent organizations, the avowed ob
jects of all of which should be to
"down with monopolies and up with
the people." They should be organ
ized and run exclusively in the in
terest of a lot of defunct politicians
who have been played out at least
ten j'ears, during which time they
have not had where to lay their
head. And the beauty of the move
ment is the ease with which the
subject is handled. It nerds no ar
gumentIn fact, there is none. Pre
judice Is the passion to be worked
upon. Reason and hard, common
sense are not needed. When the ora
tor of the occasion stands up before
bis audience and tells that monopo
lies aro ruining the country;the rich
are getting richer and the poor
poorer, that there is something
wrong, that the people are being
ruined ; that they do too much work
for too little pay. The brethren at
this juncture, who come along for
the purpose, wring their bands and
groan for the "poor working class
and all with one voice cry-, "Selah."
The speech is finished, the "jig is
up," and then organization com
mences. Each member pays in his little $2,
and the brethren groan again, as
the money jingles, for they know
not one single cent of it will be
spent for kid gloves or whisky, or
cigars, or wine, or women. It will
be sent to the national organization,
where it will be used in crushing
monopolies, where they will be
ground into powder between
the upper and lower mill-stone, and
their accumulated wealth, which
they have been defrauding the peo
ple of, lo! these many years, will
be divided among "toe poor work
ing class," and everybody will be
rich in a giffy.
We would say to our friends If
we have any in the language of the

in !" Sarpy Co. Sentinel.
