There are at least twenty counties

DOES EEFUTATIOH EEFUTE1
At a regular meeting of the Ne
braska Trades' Assembly , held last
evening at .Machinists and .Black
smiths' hall , the following pream
ble and resolution was adopted :
HALL OF TRADES' ASSEMBLY , 1
OMAHA , August 24,1874. J
WHEREAS , A certain article ap
peared in the evening BEE of this
date- , purporting to come from
"Many Members of the Trades' As
sembly , " wherein a certain mem
ber of the Trades' Assembly Is
charged with misrepresentation and
hypocrasy ; therefore , be it
Resolved , That we , the Trades
assembly , do denounce the senti
ments therein contained , and do
hereby pronounce them false In
every particular , and recognize it
as an attempt of the BEE to undermine -
mine the influence of the Dally
Union in its efforts to advance the
Interests of the workingmea.
War. CARNABY , President.
C. E. PARCELL , Secretary.
In order that our position in this
matter may not be misconstrued ,
we shall make a plain statement ,
whicn we are able to back upbyun- |
The communication "purporting"
to come from many members of
the Trades' Assembly was published
at the request of a prominent mem
ber of the Assembly , who will , in
due time , publiclv avow the author
ship of the article. Furthermore
we are authorized by him to
declare that Mr. Carnaby , the
President of the Assembly ,
had personally urged him to
publish the fact that Charles E ,
Parcel while denouncing the Be-
publican party in the Assembly aud
charging it with wholesale corrup
tion , had through misrepresentation
secured a postal appointment at the
hands of that party. And now , in
asmuch as Mr. Parcel , for whose
special benefit these resolutions were
passed , desires to "put the BEE into
a false attitude before the commu
nity , we reiterate that he did
make anti-Republican speeches in
the Assembly within the last sixty
days , thus seeking to prejudice its
members against the party. Fur
thermore , that his appointment was
secured mainly under representa-
tionst which , interpreted into plain
English , would say that he carried
the Trades' Union in his pocket ,
find coujd transfer and deliver it at
Now we are just as anxious as
anybody to enlist Workingmen un
der the Republican standard but we
desire to do so upon principle , and
not by corrupt barter or hypocrisy.
We believe that the alms and
objects of the Trades Assembly are
of a higher order than the mere ap
pointment of its members to postal
clerkships. The intimation that
the BEE was actuated solely by a
desire to undermine a oontemporary
Any paper that pretends to represent -
sent honest workingmen and de
fends and upholds our postal corrup-
tionlsts , underlines itself and
proves conclusively that it cannot
be relied on when Important prin
ciples come into collision with
money in the hands of public
thieves. Prominent workingmen
assure us that the resolutions
above quoted could haye never been
adopted If a majority of all the
members of the Assembly had
THE reported failure of experi
mental steam canal boating is flatly
contradicted by parties who have
recently investigated the subject :
"The steam canal-boats on the
Baxter patent , carrying freight on
the Erie Canal , have surpassed the
most sanguine anticipations of the
advocates of steam-navigation in
artificial channels. There are al
ready seven of these vessels plying
between Buffalo and New Yorkand
half a dozen more are constructing.
The round trip from Buffalo to New
York and return , occupies fourteen
days on an average. They bring
from 100 to 150 tons of merchandise
from tidewater and take down
over 200 tons of grain. The bed
of the canal offers some obstacles
to rapid travel at present from the
accumulation of mud , but , even
with this disadvantage of Increased
consumption of fuel and retardation
of the boats , the Buffalo Advertiser
thinks that grain can be profitably
carried from Chicago to New York
in ten days , and at absurdly low
rates. This allows six days for the
canal part of the journey , but as the
obstacles in the way of travel dis
appear , it may be reduced to four ,
or even to three days.
The Ohio Constitution.
The people of Ohio have , by the
lejection of the proposed new Con
stitution of the State , given very
emphatic expression to their de
termination to leave well enough
alone. The $200,000 spent to get
up that document the State niay
charge to profitanilloss. . The de
bates of the convention , of which
3,000 copies were ordered printed ,
and which were to appear in four
volumes of from 1,200 to 1,500
pages each , will now , it is under
stood , be consigned to the waste-
basket. Since the collapse of
the the Northern Pacific Rail
road , the failure of Jay Cooke , and
the panic , there has been no such
instance of unproductive consump
tion and waste of capital. Never
was there a smaller return to solanje
an investment. Never was the labor
of 150 men , the total number of
delegates to the Convention , or of
elghty-eiht : lawyersthe contingent
to it of the legal profession , reward
ed with meaner results. The fact
that the present Chief-Justice of the
United States presided over the de
liberations of the convention from
the time it met until hewas ap
pointed to the most prominent place
hi the judiciary of the country went
The Convention met on May 13 ,
1873 , and for a whole year devoted
their best-efforts to produce a Listing
monument to their political wisdom.
They chose a dull season and an
"off" year , that they might devote
themselves to the their labor of love
undisturbed. How thoroughly
.everything was debated at their
meeting may be learned from the
length of time it took them to de
cide whether the same legal fees
should be charged hi the cities and
in the rural districts viz. , a whole
month. C/ticago Tribune.

The Mineral Deposits of Horth-
[ Oakdale Journal. ]
Every season It becomes more
and more apparent that Northwest
ern Nebraska is exceedingly rich in
mineral deposits of different kinds.
J. C. Bradeen , of this county , has
just returned from an extensive trip ,
whioh was made for the purpose of
gaining a personal knowledge of
the mineral resources of the upper
country. He explored along the
banks of the Verdigris for a .consid
erable distance. Here he found a
fine quality of limestone , soapstone ,
and sandstone in large quantities.
He continued his explorations
along the course of the Nio-
brara , and followed the course of
Eagle creek , hi Holt county , for a
considerable -distance. Along all
these streams he reports to have
found inexhaustible quantities of
limestone. A large amount of tim
ber is also to be found on these
streams. Mr. B. left in our office
specimens of the limestone brought
from the Verdigris , which he says
Is the finest he has seen in Nebras
ka. He also left with us specimens
of petrified buffalo bones. They
were perfect bone Jn appearance ,
yet were as hard as flint
Mr. McEverly , of Holt county ,
informs us that he has not only seen
limestone , soapstone , etc , on Eagle
Creek , but also fine quality of slate-
stone is a sure Indication of coal.
At the present rate thatthis country
Is settling up , It will not take long
ere this problem Is practically sol
ved. We have not the least doubt
but that coal will be found along the
Niubrara aud its tributaries in suffi
cient quantities to supply this coun
try for years to come. The fuel ques
tion has been a much mooted one
in Nebraska , but we think with the
timber we have along our streams ,
with the certainty that coal
exists in many places ,
-with our late peat discoveries , we
think none need be seriously
troubled on this question. BuildIng -
Ing material has been considered a
draw back to Nebraska , but this is
not near so bad as many people
would suppose. Gen. O'Neill , who
returned a few days ago from the
pine regions at the headwaters of
the Elkhorn , assures us that all the
reports of pine in that country , thus
far made can be relied upon. When
once the Elkhorn Valley has a rail
road intojthisjsection of country , wo
can in all probability , be supplied
with lumber at a price greatly be
low what we have to pay at present !
