"When the Chicago fire "rendered

homeless , and the scourge of yel
low fever decimated the families by
hundreds in Shrevcport , Memphis
and other cities , the citizens
of Omaha were among the
first to forward rclier. Now
that hundreds of families in our
own State arc in sad need of relief ,
we hope that our citizens will not
hesitate to assist them , and wo sug
gest that some active citizens like
Mr. Anderson and others of the U.
P. shops devise a somewhat similar
plan as that inaugurated by them
upon the occasion of the Memphis
and Shreveporfc relief meeting at

The unanimity with which the
State Republican Convention , num
bering 269 members , renomhiated
Congressman Crounse for a second
term , Is an endorsement which can
not fail being a sourcs of pride to
himself , a gratification to his friends
and an honor to the party. It tends
to exhibit , in no small degree , the
warm appreciation byihe masses of
the services of an honest and faith
ful official. Although in the past
two > ears very important measures
were under consideration in Con
gress , the Democratic press of this
State has failed to find fault with
any act of our Representative ,
and the inference is that
they had no occasion to
do so. In all the struggles when
our State interests came in antago
nism to those of others , Represeta-
tive Crounse labored hard and faith
fully in behalf of his own constitu
ency , end the citizens of "Omaha ,
particularlj" , have had occasion to
applaud his earnest efforts in their
behalf. Especially was that the
case toward the close of the last
session. To those who have only
resided in Nebraska within the past
two years , wo will say in reference ?
to Mr. Crounse'a past history that
he resided in New York until 1865.
During the war he was in active
army Service , and was disabled by
wounds in 1862 , from which time
he practiced law in his native State
until his arrival here.
Ho has served this State in the
Legislature , in the fall of 1865 , and
was electee Associate Justice on the
supreme bench in I860. Through
out his entire course of public ser
vice in this State , his reputation lor
honesty , candor and integrity , has
never been assailed or questioned.
The only fault the Democracy can
find with him is that he is a staunch
Republican. His election is a'fore
THE WAS OF BACES.
The present troubles in Texas ,

white settlers s ° ems to be consid
ered by many .Democratic journals
as partaking exclusively of a parti-
zan nature , and AS the blame , by a
large portion of the Democratic
press , seems to be thrown at the
door of the Republican administra
tion we are glad to see a few leading
Democratic journals take a some ;
what more sensible view of the
matter. The following , from the
M'ssouri Republican , the leading
Democratic journal of Missouri , also
meets the warm endorsement of the
Chicago Times. We recommend its
careful perusal to the Omaha Her
"Without considering at present
the blunders of national policy that
have produced this deplorable rela
tion between the whites and blacks ,
it is too evident that the whites are
committing excesses which cannot
be defended. We arts told that the
riotous behavior and threat of the
negroes produce these conflicts ; but
even if this be true , in every in
stance , it does not warrant the
butchery of negroes in which they
almost invariably end , nor will U
avert the violent reaction of north
ern opinion and feeling which these
massacres will inevitably produce.
Wo can tell the southern people that
these conflicts , if not suppressed ,
will re-radicalize the north , give che
republican party a new lease of pow
er , defeat the democracy in every
northern state , insure the enactment
of the civil rights bill , and provoke
from congress u harsher supplement
of reconstruction than has yet been
witnessed. The people of the south
have exhibited much patience ana
forbearance under the sufferings of
the last nine years ; it would be an
incalculable 'misfortune if they
should now lose all the moral power
which this patience has given them
by an unjustifiable war upon the
clip the following from the
correspondence of the St. Joe Her
ald. It contains some suggestions
which to us seem worthy of consid
eration by many of our new immi
grants , and may , if acted upon ,
prove profitable :
lany men como from the East
with the idea that a man can farm
profitably in these States without
any previous knowledge of the busi
ness ; they go to work the first year
to raise corn , and if that crop fails
they have nothing whatever to fall
back on. Then they curse the coun
try , po back and tell all kinds of
stories regarding the terrors of this
Western country. Other men who
understand the business , depend en
tirely on corn for feed , although
they are \voll aware that of all the
crops rai ed in this country this is
the least certain. Small grain rare
ly , if ever , Jails , and yet the major
ity of the farmers do not raise *
any. A field of barley is
almost a curiosity , oats are
raised only in small quantities ,
while rye and flax appear to be
shunned by nineteen farmers out of
twenty. Why should this be ? It
is an acknowledged fact that corn
is not as good for feed for horses as
oats , neither will it equal mangel-
wurtzle , turnips , or other roots as
feed for cattle or sheep ; and hogs
will fatten quicker when fed barley
meal than when fed-corn. In Eng
land corn is not fed at all , and yet
the beef , mutton and hog meat pro
duced in that country cannot be
equalled in this. Is it not possible
to drop the prejudice to English
custom * , and follow the example of
English farmers in this respect ?
Let the homesteaders of Kansas and
and Nebraska consider this subject ,
and in future seasous not place all
their dependence on their corn crop ,
which , when successful , is noc as
profitable to raiseas binall grain.

Among the Black Hills.
The Opinion of an Associated
Press Agent that Cnster
Gold in Unlimited Quantities.
( Special Dispatch to the St. Louis Democrat )
BISMAKCK , D. T. , August 31.
Ouster's expedition returned to
Fort Lincoln last 'evening , having
marched in fifty-nine days over 900
miles , keeping within the Black
Hills twenty-six days and traveling
in valleys 300 miles in extent. Tne
Running Water Region , where the
Indians'report nuggets lying around
loose , and the Big Horn Region ,
known to abound in gold , were not
explored for lack of time. The
marches were rapid and halts brief ,
preventing exhaustive research , and
yet gold was found in almost unlim
ited quantities iu Ouster's Park ,
seven miles south of Harney's Peak ,
where twenty of the boys took gold
claims. There gold was found at
the grass roots to the extent of five
cents to the pan. increasing in
amount until at the depth of eight
feet the yield was twenty cents to
the pan. With every mining facili
ty , the miners estimate that from
$25 to $100 per single man can be
taken out in this gulch. Gold
was found iu paying quantities
at many points ; al o solid silver
plumbago bed , inexhaustible. The
country is so rich in external beauty
and so nroductive , thai it is well
styled a paradise as well as an Eldo
rado. The Black Hills are held to
be sacred grounds by the Indians ,
the hunting grounds of the Great
Spirit , and aie never occupied by
them , and seldom visited by them.
There is in the w hole extent of the
Hills not a single human habitant
by the hostile trjbes who are located
west and north , will not inolestand ,
it is believed there are not troops
enough in the department to stop
the rush of infatuated gold-hunters
who will seek the hills 'from every
quarter. Think of a few hundred
men trying a line of miles jn extpnt ,
Impatient , 'almost desperate , on one
side , and gold on the other. It can
not be done. The distance from
Bismarck to the' mines } s 200 miles.
No hostile Indians were seen on the
entire trip , though Custer wont 75
miles out of his road to strike a
point where the whole Sioux nation
was said to be acting for them.
They had burned hundreds of miles
in extent , apparently destroying the
grazing ; that was alj the h.urm done.

Agencies feel tha.t the Qreat Father

lowing the white man to enter this
region , but they will only protest ,
trusting the government tx > do them
justice. The country north of the
hills and west of Bismarck is neu-
Iral grounds and Indians are rarely
ever seen upon it , though it is
crossed occasionally by war parties
of the Sioux , seeking to btrade their
old enemy , the Rees , at JBsrt.ljold ,
or by the latter on the war-path
against the Sioux. The explorers
are ready to lead an expedition from
Bismarck to the Black Hills , if satis

A FEARFUL RIDE.
Four Days ia a Freight uar
Without Food or Drink.
( crom the Albany Argu . )
Yesterday morning a man named
John Kclley was taken to the third
precinct station house in an insensi
ble condition. He was found in a
freight car by some tramps who en
tered the car at Sch.onectady Sun
day uig ljt for the purpose of stealing
a ride to this city. Tliey heard the
groans of an apparently dying nian ,
and at first wore alarmed , hut on in
vestigation Kelly was discovered.
One of the trtimps poured sorno
liquor down Kelly's ' throat , and on
the arrival of the train nt West Al
bany they procured a couple of
sandwiches for him. These he de
voured rapidly. He was helped
from the car , when it was found
that he could not walk , for he fell to
the earth insensible.
He was picked up and placed on
a car and brought to the station
house , as stated , from which he was
carried on a stretcher to St. Peter's
Hospital. Under the oare of Dr.
Hart ho was speedily restored to
consciousness. On being ques
tioned , he related substantially the
followinc story as to how he came
in the position found 5
ily no me is John Kelly , and I am
now twenty-three years of age.
Three years ago I enlisted in the
regular array and was assigned to
the Second Cavalry , from which I
was discharged about four weeks
ago. The regiment Avas then .sta
tioned at Camp Douglas , in Utah.
From there X went to Omaha , and ,
unfortunately , got in with a rough
crowd and it's a pretty rough place.
I stayed ahout there drinking and
gambling until all my money ( about
? 300) ) was gone , then I thought I
would try aud reach home in Phila
delphia. I started and made my
way to Davenport , Iowa , stealing a
ride when I could and walking the
rest of the way , I arrived at Da
venport last Wednesday , and could
get nothing to do or to eat. Early
on Thursday morning I en
tered the car in which I was
found before it was locked
up , having noticed the day before
that it was bound east. 15secretcd
myself in the oats , and soon after ,
the cars started the dust from the
oats , owing to the motion of the car ,
soon filled my eyesnose and mouth ,
BO that I could not breathe. While
confined in the carl made two at
tempts to open the door , hut was un
able to do so. I became insensible ;
knew nothing more until last night ,
when I was aroused by a racket
outside the car , and soon after the
door opened and three or four fel
lows entered. They were making a
noibe anu I endeavored to tell them
to stop , when they discovered and
dragged mo out of the oats. I had
nothing to eat or drink from Wed
nesday noon until this morning ,
when the fellows who came in the
car gave me some thing. My folks
all live in Philadelphia , and my
father is proprietor of the New York
House , near the Pennsylvania Cen
Kelly , who appears to be a stout ,
athletic young manseemed a while
later but little the worse for this ter
rible ride of a thousand miles , and
will undoubtedly recover , although
considerable care must be taken.
But for his opportune discovery by
the tramps , he would have contin
ued on to New York , and in all
probability would have been taken
out dead , as he could not have sur
vived many hours longer in the
condition ill which ho was found.
All the food he ate on Wednesday
before starting from Davenport was
two pears. The walk from Omaha
to Davenport was about three hun
dred miles , making in all about
ouo thousand three hundred miles
he has traveled since he left Omaha
three weeks ago.
Kivor Water in England.
The condition ot some of the wat-
cn. of some of the rivers in this
country , says the Pall Mall Gazette ,
is now so horrible that those that
fall ir.to them run the risk , 'not so
much of being drowned as of being
poisoned. This was the case with
an unfortunate man on whose lxdy
an inquest was held by the coroner
atSaltord. It seems the deceased
fell into the Irwell while looking at
the ri'Jpga ' , and , according to the
medical evidence , the cause of his
death was foulness of the water.
He had been in the river about ten
minutes when ho as helped out ,
but died in forty-eight hours. He
wa" , It is stated , a teetotaller , and ,
probably being accustomed to drink
pure water , the filthy liquor he im
bibed in the Jrwell told upon him
with double severity. His medical
attendant , after detailing the ail
ments trom which the deceased had
diedand , which were causcdhesaid , ,
by immersion in the4 Avater ,
mentioned that many of his
( witness1) ) patients were suffering
from illness caused by inhaling the
noxious grtses of the river Avhile
they Avatched the regatta trews :
practicing. The jury rendered
a verdict of accidental death ;
but death under snch circum *
stances can hardly be called an
accident It is a positive cestainty
that any person who even strolls
on the banks of the Irwell in-
currs the danger of death by disease ,
Avhile those Avho fall into what are
termed ite "waters" might as well
plunge into a bath of prussic acid.
This is a distressing state of affairs
to any but those who contemplate
suicide , and who , of course , delight
hi the double deadlmess of this
filthy river. There will also be
considerable amusement in intem
perate circles at this additional
proof if , indeed , any were needed
of the dangers to Avhich Avater-
drltikers are exposed ; nor can there
be any doubt that many persons
are driven to drink adulterated gin
and beer in despair of obtaining
