SINCE Jeff. Davis has gone ml

JUST as we predicted two days

bat's apology :
"It is , of course , understood , as
was fairly stated in our first article
on the incorporated commercial cut
throats of the Iowa "pool" rail

together too popular personally for
the good of tuo people of Omaha ,

the each other. "We speak of them

in a business sense. " Herald.
It ia of course understood -by
everybody in these parts that the
Herald never means what it says
excepting when it toadies to men of
wealth and men of influence. Of
course these gentlemen cut-throats
will understand that they are la
beled as cut-throats in a strictly
Pickwickian , sense , just "as Dick
Turpln , Jacsr Sheppard and other
gentlemanly road agents were fre
quently nick-named in their day
by men who admired their polished
manners. It now only remains for
the champion acrobat to explain
that in calling them "commercial
cut-throats" no insinuation was In

FACTS AXD riCTIOX.
The overwhelming array of facts
and figures produced by the BER to
disprove the charge that the B. &
M. in .Nebraska la waging a war of
discrimination against Omaha , and
in favor of Lincoln , is met by our
acrobatic contemporary with a col
umn of personal abuse directed at
Mr. fc > . S. Caldwell , whom -the Her-
old assumes to be the author of our
.Now , in the first place , we desire
it understood that no article written
by outsiders ever appears in the ed
itorial columns of the BEE. In the
next place , we will disabuse the
mind of our contempory by stat
ing that Mr. S. S. Caldwell did not
dictate or Inspire the article , nor did
he have the remotest agency in its
production. He did not know that
such an article was written until he
saw it in print. The facts and fig
ures produced were procured at
our own instance and without sug
gestion or solicitation from any
body. The Herald does > ot attempt
to gainsay or discredit any of the
facts produced.but it insinuates that
discrimination is being made under
handed by a rebate of freight tolls.
This , we are assured by the officers
of the B. &M. Is untiue , and we
challenge the.HraW to cite any in
stance where freight charges to or
from Lincoln have been made the
same or lower than those charged at
Omaha , excepting alone the article
of corn from Lincoln to Chicago.
The charge that Lincoln lumber
dealers are favored by cut-throat
rates in order to undersell Omaha
dealers , Is absurd. An examination
of the books of the B. & Al. com
pany shows that Lincoln only
shipped one car-load of lumber to
stations west of Lincoln oyer that
road during the year 1875.
The charge that Caldwell has
shipped corn from Lincoln to Bos
ton for 60 cents , is about as veracious
as the other charges. Mr. Caldwell
nas not secured these cut-throat
rates , for the reason that he never
shipped any corn to Boston.
In this connection we may
as well state that the Her
ald is doing Omaha incalcula
ble damage by an agitation which
even if founded on fact , must inev
itably widen the breach between
Omaha and the rest of the state.
Our merchants are doing a heavy
business south of the Platte , and
the attempt to array Omaha against
any locality in that region must
alienate the patrons of our mer
There is , however , one consola
tion for Omaha , and that is that the
Herald circulates less than two hun
dred copies of its daily south of the
Platte. If the Herald is really in
earnest in its denunciation of the
cut-throat business , would it not be
well to give Omaha a chapter on
railroad rebates , granted to the
grain ring , of which Mr. Hitch
cock's government director is the
head ? That is an unexplored
bonanza tlmt mtuht be worked with

OMAHA , Feb. 8,1876.
lo Edward JJosewater , Publisher of
the c/mct&a Be.e :
In your paper of Monday evening
Feb. 7th , appears an article , in
which my place of business is spoken
af as a "colored den. "
You M-ill please explain what Im
pression you intended to leave upon
.he public mind by theuse , of those
ivords , which , as generally inter
preted , would place mo before this
jommunity in a most unenviable
ight. E. D. CURRY.
You evidently take exception to
ho following paragraph :
' Sparks and another colored man
lamed Newton , were known to
lave been out on a free during all
if Saturday night , spending money
reely , and bucking the tiger at a
lolored den on Douglas street. "
This paragraph occurs in the
SEfc's report of the jBoyd safe bur-
; lary Jwith which Sparks has been
barged. Although no reference Is
aado to your place of business ( ? )
ou acknowledge that the coat fits
ou by making this inquiry. The
JEE is always courteous , and your
uestions shall be answered without
According to Webster , a den is
a customary place of resort ; a
aunt ; a retreat ; as , for example , a
en of robbers ; a den of misery
nd vice. " A colored den may
ither be a customary place of re-
jrt ; a disreputable haunt of vice
nd misery painted in colors , or it
jay be a disreputable haunt tre-
uonted by persons of color. It
lay be both. If your place of
usinessissuch a den , the sooner you
et more respectable employment
ie less danger there will be of your
eing insulted by paragraphs like
lie above. Since you have seen fit
j propound this conundrum , we
my as well state that while the
lEEis ever ready ] to demand for
nd accord equal rights to the co
wed man with those enjoyed by
ie white man , it also belleyes that
slored men shall be made amena-
Se to the laws that punish vice and
rime hi white men.
If , as you Intimate , your place of
uslness is a den where colored men
uck the tiger and spend their hard
irned money .in gambling and
indred crimes ; the less you say
Iwut it the better for the reputation
f the colored race.

XENIA , SARPY COUNTY , )
Neb. , Feb. 7 , ' 76. J
This bustling little village , as
many of your readers are aware , is
situated down In the southwestern
corner of Sarpy county. The sur
rounding lands are very fertlleand ,
as high as one hundred bushels per
acre of corn has been harvested this
Just at present a bridge over the
Platte seems to be the greatest want
to the farmers. It would enable
them to pass to and from Saunders
county , and especially would it ben
efit tlie Saunders county farmers , as
then they could at all seasons of the
year move their products to the
LIVELY RACKET ! .
A few evenings since at the Xenia
school house there occurred one of
the most lively and highly interest
ing fiascos that we have witnessed
in many a day. The singing school
was enjoying oue of their usual
good times , when a slight misunder
standing arose betwenn the Davis
brothers and William Armstrong
They immediately set on to each
other like old time knocxers. One
of the Davis boys hurled Armstrong
to the floor , crushing the seats in
his fall. He sustained serious inter
nal injuries , it is feared , besides
having his left shoulder dis
located. Mr. F. T. Leffler ,
from Forrest City had a fearful embargo
barge placed on the side of his head ,
direct from the shoulder of an indi
vidual who is very appropriately
did not resent the blow.
The spring of ' 76 promises to be
an early one. Maiiy of the farmers
are preparing to sow wheat. Geese
and ducks are quite plenty on the
Flatte river bottoms. The genial
rays of the February sun has al
ready warmed the hearts of the
farmers in this section , and the ex
pectation for the coming season's
crops count up high. May they not

of the Republican partj .stands to

American histo y ; its advent was in

civil war hanging over

the old ship Constitution and guid
ed her safely through the impend

bonds of slavery and subduing the
enemy , both north and south. Now
I don't want to fight that ground
over again. I furnished five sons
to help carry on the war ; all un
scathed , to be sure , but one who
died of disease in New Orleans
but I fear the consequences if the
party gets into power that is trying
every scheme to accomplish it. I
is the old animosity of the demo
cratic party warmed over. The
party since it first broke ranks has
assumed almost every name that

Burners , Honkers , Locofocos , anc
finally down to the low , degradec
name of Copperhead ; and there she

boldly to the front with your armor
bright as the noonday sun , and fight

Railroad. Bonds Defeated in Cedar
ST. HELENA , Feb. 7
The railroad bonds were defeated
by Yankton and the Dakota South
ern Railroad Company , as they were
over hi force with money and men
to defeat them. However , the bonds
lota majority , but this was not suf
ficient to carry them. There was a
very lively time at the polls ; a good
leal of bad whisky was drank , and
several fights occurred. The bonds
carried by 28 majority. All the
most wealthy men from Dakota
tvere here bore to defeat them , in
Behalf of the Dakota Southern rail-
oad. F. F. S ,

The beat known and the least
mown American of to-day is a pos
sible nominee of the Cincinnati
convention. The vigor which has
jharacterized his administration of

) f the treasury department , espec-
ally his persistent , relentless prose-
sution of die whisky rings of In-
Hanapolis , St. .Louis , Milwaukee ,
ind Chicago , has made Mr. Bristow
he foremost figure In the adminis-
: ration. When he was unexpected ,
y called to the cabinet , he had no
lational reputation. His fame as
i soldier during the war , and as
i lawyer before and after , was con-
Ined to his own state. He had

lon no more conspicuous than that

vhich he Is now the chief. His flt-
less for the important post to which
IB was assigned had never been
lisplayed , so far as the general pub
ic knew , but he quickly demon-
itrated his capacity. As soon as he
iad mastered the details of his de
partment , he set himself the ardu-
lus task , never before honestly un-
lertaken , of not only breaking up
he rings which were flooding the
iountry with crooked -whlaky ,
and thereby defrauding the gov
ernment of millions of revenue ,
but also of bringing the offenders
to the punishment tLoy have mer
ited. Every newspaper ot the day
consciously or unconsciously , gladly
or reluctantly , bears evidence of his
complete and startling success
.There has been nothing sensationa
in his work. He has neither sought
men's approval nor deprecated their
wrath. * He found before'him an
obvious if a dangerous duty , and to
the straightforward , conscientious
discharge of it has zealously applied
an energy which has proved tire
less and an intelligence which is
seen to be of no common order
From first to last he has been the
backbone of the whisky prosecu
tion. Grant's precept was but en
echo of Bristow's performance. I

Mr. Bristow has yet found abun
dance of time to discharge his other
duties as secretary. He is the Intel

for retrenchment and economy , anc
has stood by his desk while other
employes of the people have been
junketing. In demonstrating hi
ability In the cabinet , Bristow ha
shown his fitness for the presidency
He Is the peer of any and the supe
rior of most of the men named fo

among the political possibiiitie
that , without an effort on his oar
other than is made by anv man in

ha $70,000 in greenbacks. There he
went into the business of running
an "organ" for the republican party ,
lost money , and after many ups
and downs in his journalistic career ,
was forced to drop out last summer.
He lost $16,000 by indorsing for Mr.
Nash , of St. Paul. His Omaha
property became tied up , and his
fortune , that he had added to for
a time in that city , faded away.
