He was superintendent of tbe BEE

Aa Reform Schools are just now
being agitated in Nebraska , the fol
lowing account of a riot last Friday
In Worcester , Mass. , will illustrate
some of the difficulties encountered
in reforming little urchins :
A perloos riot took place at the
Westboro btate Reform School Fri
day tbt 12th inst. About 100 bovs
were in tbe uprising , and the sig
nal was given by shutting ofl
the ROS in the ecbool-room. The
flgbt was a deeperate one lor a few
minutes , every article of furniture
in two of the rooms being completely
demolished. The officers succeeded
in keeping the rioters In the rooms
until help was summoned , and then
subdued them by tbe free use of
water from a hydrant. None of the
officers or men were seriously hurt ,
and none of the boys escaped.
f * THE BEE does not not ask Demo
crats to support any particular can
didate , hut , in common with the
masses of honest tax paying Repub
licans and Democrats , its editor
claims the right to demand of them
opposition to rascality and cor
ruption wherever it ejfste. In
doing this , the BEE claims to be
consistent It has at all times con
demned misdemeanor ? of officials in
tbe Republican as well as the Dem
ocratic party , and its columns bear
evidence also to the fact that it has
given credit to all officers alike ,
regardless of their partlzan views.
In asking Democrats to oppose tbe
re-election of Senator Hitchcock the
BEE only asks of them to do the
p'aln dutyofhonejt citizens. What
ever opinion they may entertain of
other candidate * , they must admit
that Hitcbcock's record has been
anything but that of an honorable
or honest character.
Hoy. WM. rnKViLLE , of Douglas
county , Is put down by the federal
ring as sure to vote for Hitchcock.
Stow we happen to know from a
personal Interview that he never will
vote for the back-pay Senator. MX.

others , on his honor , before and af
ter election , that his friends could
rely upon one thing , that be was

Mr. James Neville , his brother , was

no influence over him : Further
than this , Mr. Seville assured us

MOODT'S ADVICE TO CKEJf-
Public opinion maj differ , ard
and does in fact , upon the merits
of spasmodic reform brought about
by the exciting appeals of religious
revivalists The effect of such Jip-
penls like the appeal itself is merely
temporary. There Is a peculiar de-
grea of mesmeric power in the im-
papioued and studied eloquence of
these trained speakers that like the
whirlwind carries the will of the
hearer with lUelf , but when the
fctorm ceases theooly propellingpow-
er remaining is.lti momentum and
when that ceases the effect is once
more lost. Occasionally , however ,
when , with impassioned eloquence ,
the speaker appeals direct upon the
reason rather than the weakness of
his audience , the result has a bene
ficial and lasting effect. Mr.
Moody's sermon last Friday at Chicago
cage as reported in the Chicago In
Uriels one of these senelble efforls.
His advice to worklngmen is so full
of good sense that we reproduce it ,
as it is for the consideration espe
cially ol those who are out of work .
And now a word about work.
Earn the bread you eat. I would
rather earn five cents than someone
give me five dollars. Tbere is no
hope of a man's reformation who
doea not go to work. Laziness be
longs to the old creation. 1 don't
know what to do , and I don't Bee
what God can do , with a lazy man.
If you can get only 25 cents a day
20 to work for that. Someone
once tried to abuse a Senator by
s viiiK that he used to black boots.
"Didn't I black them well ? " he
answered. Work is honorable.
Any honest work is better than
idleness. Black boots , or carry a
hot , or carry in coal ; and if you can
o Jy earn five cents a day , live on
fiv cents a day. Don't go in debt.
Some of you think it IB hard that
tl > ere is no work to be fouiyl ; that
people are 60 suspicious of you.
Well , they have reason for it ; you
ara only juat out of the rum-shop ;
you are just getting up to the drat
round of the ladder ; but if they
find that you are [ really a true man ,
tlieu there will be people to trust
you and give you employment. It
IB because them are EO many hypo
crites in the world that people are
Hirald to put confidence in you , an'l
pi edict that you will not hold out.
Don't think you are stooping because -
cause you have to work for less than
you got before. Do your poor rough
work well , and you will find better
vork to do.
Another thing. Home of you are
in the habit of lyinu. I have heard
of ouo who professes to be a reform-
it ! man who has been lying ; and
what a disgrace that is to a good
cause. .Now , let me say to you , be
truthful If you have to tell the
woMinboutyourfDlf , don't lie. Own
up to the truth , for it Is better and
ftarer that the worst should bekuown.
Here ia a mau Just out of the Peni
tentiary , who gets a place of trust ,
and one of his old pals comes in and
threatens to blow on him unless he
puts up $ ? 5. JBut if be can answer ,
"My master knows all about me , "
he is a free man , in f-piteof his post
I want you to take this advioe
kindly ; I give it from my heart.
If you don't get on as well as you
wish , don't go back into elu. Ono

to go to selling liquor again ; but let

THE Republican's hints at the pos
sibility of the BEE'S daily demise ,
are of the wolfish order of crija. In
its six yeara ; < > f existence the BEE
never has had a strike of its print
ers for back pay. The Republican ,
on the contrary , has had one nearlv
every week in the past two months.
They have kept tbeir employes liv
ing'on promises until the best of
them have thiowu up tbeir situa
tions iu order to get their pay. The
Republican owed all their printers
three weeK's wages last Saturday ,
and only paid up one-third ot their
indebtedness , promising them a
settlement when tbesenatorial fight
would be over. We are not in the
habit of noticing such little bmi
ness matters in our neighbor's af
fairs , but the hinte of the Republican
in ita Kunday issue certainly invite
comment , and we make these few
remarks aa a reminder of Messrs.
Brooks & Co. to attend to their own
THE .Lincoln Journal says that
tuo two day's legislative adjourn
ment will operate favorably for
Hitchcock. That Journal fails , how
ever , Io illustrate how and in what
manner such an effect can be
brought about. Does the editor pre
sume to say it will take two days
for members to trace out of the six
years musty records of the Henator'n
time some commendable act of his
ta bang upon as an excuse for their
support , or does it mean what every
one wno knows the modus operandi
of this hack-pay grabber and his
lobbyists , that it will give time to
invent some new offices to be prom
ised , or get up some side bet for a
few woek-kneed legislators to take
an Interest in ? The ways of poll !

The following extract from the

about this metamorphosis :
D. C. Brooks , editor of the Oma
ba Republican , the most egotistical
ignoramus that ever crossed tbe
Missouri river , is'engaged throwing
mud at prominent Republicans of
this State because they refuse to as
sist in bolstering up the most cor
rupt federal ring that ever cursed
any community. It is a notorious
fact that Hitchcock's appointees ,
almost without exception , have
been dead beats , men who Were un
able to succeed in any legitimate
business , and Unless Hitchcuck is
returned to the U. 8. Senate , there
is no possible chance for them tore-
tain their positions. This fact they
well understand , hence their great
hue and cry of opposition Republi
cans , Rosewa'er men , &o. [ Saun-

AH far as our own views are con
cerned we had no particular choice
in the matter at the outset , with the
imlauce in favor of Mr. Crounse.
[ Republican , Dec. 26.18T6.
Mr. Hitchcock has the cleanest
record of the most prominent cau-
lidutca now in the field for senatorial
honors. Scarcely one of the numer
ous aspirants other than Mr Hitch
cock , but what has cutupsome dido
during his political career that does
not settle his hash with our man.

"I cannot honorably discharge
my obligations to my constituents
and vote for Mr. Hitchcock , " are
said to be the words uttered by Mr.
Blancbard , a member of the present
Legislature , m reply to tbe ques
tion , "Will you support Mr. Hitch-
cook ? " If every member from
Western Nebraska would regard the
known wishes of his constituents
cud Jive up to those wishes in bis
vote for United States Senator ,
Hitchcock would iiot receive a soli
tary vote from this end of the State.
An overwhelming majority of the
West have pronounced against him
it id if our representatives honor the
wishes of the people above political
cimblnations and trickery , Hitch
cock will not receive the support of
a tingle member from Western Ne
braska. f North Platte Republican.
The disposition manifested by the
ami Hitchcock force at Lincoln to
pink all personal ambitions and
claims and form u union of forces in
the common cause to defeat the
Hitchcock dynasty cannot be com
mended too highly. So long as thitj
spirit is obeyed defeat is impossible
aud victory will surely abide with
tbctn and the people. The cause of
the unties is the cause of Republi
canism , of an unbiased press and of
the people They represent a prin
ciple whteh destroys tbe gopher clan
effectually , breaks up the wickedest
political combination of office-seek
ers and political trickstero that ever
cursed a young state , strikes the po
litical shackles from tne party , UMJ
trulizes the monopoly element which
at present enters so largely into the
politics of Nebraska , and will leave
the ptople and the party free and
untramelled to work for the greatest
good to the greatest number.
Every member with hla ear at
tuned to catch the vex poyull , and
with conscience and heart earnest
to catch the inspiration from the
honest masses , will array himself
on the side of the anti-Hitches as

It is currently reported that Sen

As we go to press the line of bat
tle ia forming at Lincoln for the
great fight on Tuesday 'next. The

minority , and can only win by the
division of his own party , or fusion

abide ali personal preferences and
unite on the best man. [ Saline Co.
Six years ago Hitchcock went
into the Democratic caucus and
pledged an "equitable division of
patronaae , " in case tbe Democrats
would vote for and elect him as U.
8. Senator. He had seven Republi
can friends out of thirty-two In
the Legislature , and with these ,
together with twelve Democrats
and seven bolters , he secured his
election , against the wish of a very
large majority of the republican
members. He used the democrats
catspaw and then broke his faith
with them , as he has ever done
with members of all parties. Never ,
at any election in this State , has
he supported a straight republican
ticket , and yet be insists that he
should be chosen by republicans as
U S. Sanator. Unexampled im
pudence. [ Lincoln Globe.

cold for this locality , and the fall of

few it any having died. Sheep are
doing finely on the ranches north of

hands , and promise to come out all
right in the spring. We think from
what we have seen of this business
that it would prove the most profit
able investment any capitalist could
make with bis money. The increase
is fast , the price of wool good , and
everything tends to make this the
most lucrative branch of stock rais
ing in our imagination , and we
think that all who have engaged in
it have found it to be so.

just over the loft terop'o , it ran down
across the lace to the ri ht baud corr
ner of the mouth , 'ihe flesh had
closed together iu a great ridge , and
tbo nose seemed to have been short
ened half an inch by the process of
healing. The m u with the scar
sang two or three1 dones , and then
paused his cap around for pennies.
"Did a blow of an Injun's toma
hawk do that ? " he repeated. "No ,
sir ; I got that cut down in Old Vir
ginia during the war , 'boutthe time
it looked as if Jeft Davis was the
biggest patriot iu the countiy.1
"You were in the cavalry ? "
"You bet I was I I smashed up
so many horses that I was owing
tne Confederate government over
8400,000 when she collapsed. If she
hadn't collapsed j'd been forced
into bankruptcy. "
He chuckled , ami raised bis hat
so KB to reveal the scar iu all its hid-
eouaness , and continued :
' I don't believe a tomahawk
could leave a scar like this. It takes
a good sharp sabre to spoil a man's

who do you suppose it was ? You
couldn't guess to save your neck ,
aud so I'll tell it was Custer , that
long-haired dare devil Yankee Gen
eral who used to ride around with
blood in his eyes and an extra sabre
in his teeth. He thought he'd
done for me when ho gave me this
lick , but he didn't know our fam
"How was it ? "
"It was down at Travillian Sta
tion. He was raiding around with
a lot of cavalry , and our folks got
him in a box. Somehow we got
around him on all sided , and we had
cavalry infantry and artillery. Wo
were two to one , bad him fairly
coopered , and by all decent rules of
warfare he outght to have hung out
the white flag , banded over bis sabre ,
and said : 'Boys , you've j.ot the
grapevine twist on me , and I cave. '
We expected it ; but blast him ! he
didn't do any such thing. No , sir.
He massed his troopers , gave 'em to
understand that it was 'hell or
home,1 and tbe whole caboodle of
them come foi U3 on the gallop ,
bands playing , flags flying , and
trospors yelling like wild Injuns
Our batteries playsd on 'em from a
dozen hills ; our infantiy fusiladed
'em good and strong , and our troop
ers got the word to charge.
"Durn my buttons , but wasn't it
a hot fight ! "We were all mixed up ,
bulllets flying , sabres hacking , men
yelling , horses neighing , everybody
shouting , and it was a devil's dance
all around ! I heard a YanK shout
ing orders , as if he was some big
gun or other , nnd 1 worked up to
him through the smoko. It was
Cuater. I had seen him before , and
I knew what a fighter he was. I
pushed riKht up to him , gave my
sabre a twist and a cut , and off went
his head. "
He looked up with a wicked twin
kle in his eye aud added :
"In a horn ! I rose in my stirrups
and struck at him wilh force enough
to cut clean down to the saddle , but
he parried the blow , leaned over , I
saw a Sash , and tbe next thing I
knew I bad been in the hospital
for two weeks , and the surgeons
were trying to look into my boots
through this sabre cut across my
face. I was a whole year getting
over it , aud then I looked BO hand
some that I was turned to the Home
Guards for the rest of the War.
Sometimes I feel like suicide , and
agin I don't care. I didn't bear no
grudge agin ( Juater for the slash , but
ho might just as well have put his
cheese knife througn me as to have
given me this 'X his mark , to lug
around. And that's what ails this
old reb , and thal's hov I feel. "
The Waggish Male nnd tbe Coyole.

"I'ray , sir , " said two Wolveswho
were prospecting for Gold on the
Sierra Nevada , to a Wacgieh Mule
whom they chanced to Encounter ,
"have you found Color ? " "Of a
Truth , " replied the Mute , "thereare
Indications of Bonanza in my

The Youthful Wolf remained to

"What's the price of salvation ? "
demanded one of tbe young disturb
ers of the Methodist watch-night
meeting at Huntmgton , I * . I. , as he
pushed open the door of lawyer
Plait's office on Monday Jast.
"That you had better ask of the
minister , " replied Mr. Platt ,
with the dignity befitting a legal
representative of the board of
trustees of &u outraged church.
"Well , " continued , the young man.
"I'm ashamed oi what I did there.
I own up that I went in with an old
clay pipe m say mouth and then
flung it a fellow's head , and I know
it wasn't acting right , aud I'm
kinder shamed or it. uet mo see
the law about it " He was shown
tbe law , and laconically added ,
"Then he pulled out bis wallet and
reiterated the question propounded
on entering the room. Upon being
told that all that wjuld be required
of bim for settlement , to avoid pro
secution , Would be a wf Itten apology
and payment df his share of the
costs of proceedings , he put down
the required document and three
dollars and wentoutgrumbling that
it was "d d dear salvation. " .
By yesterday morning twenty-
four from among those whose
names had bee.n taken on New
Year's eve bad followed this ex
ample. Some did it m tbe bluff
manner of the young man noted
above , while others sneaked up and
maae their peace. Of the twelve
young women whose names are on
tbe black list , all have been atoned
for either by personal appearance
at the lawyer's office with the
necessary apology fee , or by s nd
ing these essentials at the hands of
an anxloua father , or brother. Tbe
amount accepted iu settlement
Varied iu individual cases , and Mr
Platt , while declining to tell what
were the figures either beparately erin
in the aggregate , saya that the
sum fixed was influenced
by the circumstances of the
offender. The young men
say that one of their number tbe
youugest of them was absolved ou
payment of fifty cents } biit Mr
PJatt denies that amnesty even iu a
quantity sufficient for the smallest
boy was sold for that amount. Oth
ers say that the lowest quotation for
the commodity was three dollars ,
the price being kept up by the firm
deitiand , end the fact that the sup
ply was at the mercy of t'io church
party , who had a corner iu the ar
tide.These twenty-four repentanls do
not include nil the disturbers , as the
surreptitious pencil of the good
brother who planned their day of
reckoning and discomfiture recorded
the names of thirty of the scions of
the first families of Huutmgton
There are six , all ycung men , who
are still stiff-necked and rebellious.
These young meu have not visited
Lawyer Platt , nor have they penned
words of contrition , and , moreover ,
they declare that they will not.
They further say tfcat the church
has no right to compromise with
them if they have done wrong , and
is itself doing a wrong by offering
such a compromise. They farthet
explain that the cnurch exercises
arc always so ludicrous that tbe.r
merriment is aroused , and once
aroused they plead tbe difficulty of
allaying it. This , they Bay , has
been ti u * of the devotions of this
cougr gallon sjnce the conversion of
animuained : Weeden. Mr.Weedcn ,
when inspired by the i pirit of an
excii'.d meeting , dropped on hia
bauds aud knees and crept on all
fours to illustrate bow tbe sinners
groped m darkness. Equally effec
tive iu provoking laughter of the
young visitors was Mr. Weeden's
deliueatior * of the distress of the uu-
regeiierate , when overwhelmed b >
the waters of affliction , and with
out the consolations of religion ;
Thia was pictured by Mr. Wet-den ,
by falling flat nppn bis fa < * e on the
floor , and kicking and swrawllug iu
imitation of ti : motions of swim
ming. Mr. Weeden is no longer
conspicuous in the meetings , buthh
place id supplied by a Mr. Harry
Sammis , who is distinguished from
him only as meutal gymnas
tics are distinguished from phy
sical cues. It was Mr. Sammis , the
youu'/ man say , who innocently
started the merriment that after
ward assumed disgraceful proportions
tions on New year's eye. He did it
by a description of bis fight with
tbe devil. Ho was graphic , and
told how he bad grasped the evil
one in his baud , and wrestled with
and overcame bim ; and how he
had at leugh driven bis irjerual
majesty into the leg of a boot and
closing the top with his hand , had
held him prisoner. This started
the hilarity that even the actors
themselves admit was uproarious.
Much inisehief was done by a
young man with a spool attached
to a string. By rolling the spool
under-the seats and carefully pull
ing it back he created the impression
that a mouse was running about tbe
floor , and great commotion was ex
cited among the women. Coughing
aud laughing were prolilin sources
of annoyance , and the young man
with the clay pipe , already men
tioned , was abetted by companions
with canes , who pushed the bats
over the eyes of the ladles in front
of them and pulled down their back ,
hair. As tbefaithful , were called
-closer to the altar , three of the sis
ters innocently added to the mirth
bv bearing placards inscribed "Real
Estate for Safe , " "C. O. D. , " and
"No Trust. "

tones the whole body against all attrxsks of
disease. Try it and yon will find it pleasant
