and thtt > i delegates , epeaUng for constituents
whom we represent we disavow any sympathy
with , or for dishonest public officials , in what
ever eapacitr they may be employed.
5th That while we recognize and appreciate
thb ad vantages derived by the people from a
well-regulated sysUm of railways wo demand
that those public highways should bo rendered
( ubcervient to the public good. That while we
disavow any hostility toward railroad corpora

KANSAS AND NEBEASKA.
The Kansas Legislature convened
in extra session for the purpose of
devisinc means of relief for the .suf
ferers from drouth and grasshoppers ,
have so far failed to agree upon any
Two bills are now under consider-
Uon before that body. One of them
provides for the issue of $75,000 in
State bonds , the proceeds of whioh
are to be used in purchasing the
bonds of counties that require re
lief. Each of these coun
ties to D9 authorized to isssue
$5,000 of these relief bonds , drawing
seven per cent interest ; the issue -
sue of these bonds to be rati
fied by the people of the sespective
counties. The second bill is to
authorize any municipal corpora
tion to vote special relief bonds by a
two-thirds vote. t
In view of the fact that thosobills
provide that all funds shall pass
through the County Treasurer's
han&j , and in consequence ot the
number of defalcations occurring
throughout the State , Ihe commit
tee unanimously recommended a
bill to compel quarterly statements ,
to bo published showing the condi
tion of county treasuries ; and also
for exrminations of the same.
The almost spontaneous response
from the people of eastern and Cen
tral Nebraska in behalf of the dis
tressed frontier settlers , renders such
legislation on the cart of Nebraska
entirely unnecessary. Already the
voluntary contributions tnrough re
lief societies in Omaha , Lincoln , Ne
braska City , and other towns and
cities , will almost equal , if not ex
ceed , in value the amount proposed
to be raised by Kansas through the
issue of bonds. With a thor-
ougly reliable and active cen
tral organization at Omaha ,
acting for the numerous auxillery
relief societies in various parts of
the State wo are confident that
Nebraska will bo able to take care
of all the people who are really hi
want , without Legislative aid.
Under no circumstances will Ne
braska want a special session of the
Legislature this fall , and we doubt
exceedingly whether any Legisla
tion will bo need when the law
makers meet in regular session next
MAINE AND BLAINE.
Maine and Blalne seem to bo bit
ter pills for the Omaha Herald to
swallow. In common with other
Bourbon organs the Herald is trying
to escape the inevitable consequen
ces of the Republican victory in
Maine by misrepresentation.
The New York Tribune , the ablest
anti-administration paper in New
York , and withal reliable in politi
cal statistics , is forced to admit the
victory of the Republicans in
The Tribune , in its issue of Sep
tember ICth , two days after the elec
tion , says editorially : "The Repub
lican inajority in Maine , it now ap
pears , is greater than in any off year
since 18GS , and exceeds that of last
year by from 2,000 to 3,000. Both
parties have , however , put forth
their strength , for although about
13,000 more Republicans voted than
in 1873 , tbe majority is only as stated
above. The returns from the Con
gress districts also show party loyal
ty , Speaker Blaine being accorded a
majority nearly as large as in the
Presidential year. "
TUB great xiincoln monbmeut ,
which is to be dedicated at Springfield -
field , Illinois , October fifteenth , is
pronounced by connoisseurs as des
tined to bo the grandest monumental
mental pile in America. This
memorial structure designed by
Larkeu G. Meade , will it is
said bo of a character
to challenge admiration in competi
tion with similar works in any part
o' the world. In fact , it is asserted
by these who have had ample op
portunity at comparison that the
Lincoln monument at Springfield ,
in dcsiga and execution it is to be
equal to the Canova pile a Vienna.
' The figure of Lincoln , and the
grand coat of arms , have been
worked out successfully in bronze
These , with the stone work , will bo
dedicated the 15th prox. The mag.
nificont groups for the corners will
not be ready to place in position for
two or three years to come. These I
latter constitute the remarkable fea
tures of the work. The colossal
Lincoln , and the bristling coat
of arms , are marvels of sculptural
study , and are certain to earn the
toimbcJ encomiums of this ai.d
coming age ? . But the four great
groups , emblematical of "The Na
vy , " "Cavalry , " "Artillery , " and
"Infantry , " now modelled , but not
yet cast , are simply glorious.

A demented Virginian has eloped
with his mother-in-law.
P. T. Barnum was married Wed
nesday morning to the daughter of
John Fisk , of Southport , England.
It is currently reported that many
of the Mormons of Utah , married
in the Endowment House , propose
getting re-married according to the
laws of the land.
The acquaintance which led to a
recent marriage in Tarls , was
brought about by the entanglement
of one of the lady's curls in the gen
tleman's umbrella while they were
endeavoring to pass on a narrow
sidewalk during a slight shower.
A marriage license was recently
issued in Washington to a couple
whereof the gentleman , in a tem
porary state of insanity , attempted
to murder the lady he was about to
marry. She was bound to have her
Six years ago a Portland ( Mo. )
girl was married in a $2,1100 dress.
She is now in St. Clair County , 111. ,
and at last accounts gained a living
for her three children and drunken
husband by digging potatoes.
The "Matrimonial Help Society"
is spreading. An organization of
the kind was recently formed in a
Connecticut town , and every old
maid in the place and every widow
under sixty years of ago joined it
the first day.
By paying 25 cents a Providence
girl can have her future husband's
photograph shown her. The clair
voyant is said to have shown Col-
fax's photograph to one hundred
and thirty-two different females un
der the bargain.
When tbey tried to force Miss
Gay , of Independence , Missouri , in
to a marriage against her will , she
kicked the minister's hat off ,
knocked the young man down , and
rode elTon a mule , with one foot on
each side of him.
It is recorded that last week one
Cornelius Jackson , a negro , aged
100 years was married to Diana
Williams , at Meohanicsville , New
York. Until emancipated in New
York he was owned as a slave. His
wife is a stout , buxom lass , also col
ored , and will , it is thought , though
appearances may be against her ,
remain true to her name , a chaste
votaress of the virgin goddess.
A youth of seventeen summers ,
living in Alieghany county , Md. ,
ran away from homo and married a
maiden of forty winters. The dis
tracted father went for him , lug
ged him back to the deserted homestead -
stead , padlocked him to a rafter in
the garret ; and now keeps a tierce
bull-dog prowling round the premi
ses at night , looking out for a fe
male of forty winters.
The Washington Territorial Uni
versity at Seattle was opened for the
fall term on tbo 14th of this month.
Tbe son and nephew of Mr. Lai-
sun , the Chinese Commissioner of
Education , are to enter Yale.
Laura and Sadie Booth , colored
girls , have obtained third-grade
teachers' certificates in Nevada Co. ,
California , the first case of the kind
in the State.
It is reported that among persons
of 18 years of age and under the
proportion of the illiterate is smaller
in San Francisco tban in any other
large city in the Union.
An Indianapolis teacher thinks
that too much school time is occu
pied in trying to learn exact histor
ical dates , and that only a few of the
more important should be learned.
It is proposed to introduce the
Kindergarten nystem into the pub
lie schools of Milwaukee. Tbe
school census of this year # hews a
vast increase over that of last yeir ,
being no loss than 4,524 , an increase
of fully 15 per cent.
The high standard prescribed by
the system of teachers' examina
tions established in Canada in 1871
has been exceedingly successful , it
is reported , in its results of higher
scholarship , thoroughness , and dis
cipline of teachers.
The Toledo Blade holds that pub
lic school records show that the
West is more successful in maintain
ing discipline by moral suasion than
the East , and brings up as proof the
case of Chicago , which contains six
schools in wbich no whipping or
suspension occurred last vear.
In Buffalo , in 1873 , there were
21,211 pupils attending the public
schools. Outside the public school
organization there are 54 schools in
all , in which the registration of pu
pils amounted to 11.064. This is
encouraging , although it is thought
that there are over 40,000 in the
school population of the city. The
compulsory education law comes in
The average number of children
attending the public schools of De
troit during the past year was 8,285 ,
out of a school population which ,
according the last census , amounted
to 31,956. The privateschools.how-
ever , enrolled nearly 5,000 , and
7,000 more were engaged in learning -
ing trades and working for wages.
The actual cost for tuition for each
pupil belonging to the public schools
during 1873 was $10 65.
From Battleboro' , Vt. , comes an
instance of conflict of religions as
related to the schools. The Roman
Catholic priest of that town asked
of the School Committe , who , with
the teachers , have the sole right of
decision in the cose , that the chil
dren ot his parish might be excused
from attendance on Corpus Christie
Day , in order that they might at
tend church. The request was re
fused , but under instructions from
the priest the children absented
themselves , and have in consequence
quence been excluded from the
schools for the remainder of the
term. The parents appealed to a
judge , who sustained the action of
The Richmond Enquirer says :
"It must be acknowledged that a
large number of young men are
ruined annually for all purposes of
good to Virginia by over education.
They are forced to leave the State to
find a field for the exercise of their
acquirements , or they remain here
and lounge or starve on incompetent
salaries , " and then proceeds after a
fashion rather too sweeping and bit
ter , but which yet holds a clever
hint to teachers : "The great diffi
culty with our Virginia sj'stem is ,
the want of men of practical com
mon sense to control it. They are
sufficiently well educated them
selves , too much so for practical pur
poses. But they lack what is far
more valuable , to-wit : common
sense. It has been established by
experience , and id notorious , that
professional school teachers , as a
class , have no practical sense. Their
learning wo concede , but learning
is not common sense. "
