dled "cores of poor workingmen in
Omaha , who sold out his party
every time he had a chance , who
would swindle his own father If he
could gain any .political advantage
by it , talks about reform. The only
way he ever can reform is by a term
of service in the penitentiary.
NVv-ewater names from such a
source lall flat npon the ears of the
public. We came to Omaha when
a bny only fifteen years of age ,
earned our money by hard work ,
and turned over every dollar of It to
help an aged father in his declining
health , and began at twenty-
one without any resource but
our own bands and brains.
Miller , on the contrary ,
after securing his property from his
father , has been charged , and not
falsely , with faithlessness to his
father ; and the time was when
Lorin Miller slept and lived under
a strange roof , while his son George
was living upon the lusury trans-
ferr id to him and the ili-cotten gain
acquired by repudiating honest lu
borers their honest pay. This is all
we have to say in answer to Miller's
compliments to Bosewater Junior.
THE BBS is not in the habit of
making a serious cbaree against a
Journalist or a public official with *
out the evidence to prove its aser-
tion When we wrote our charges
against Miller that he had procured
a letter from Bamusl J. Tilden , advising -
vising Democrats to vote .or Hitch
cock we knew what we were talk
ing about An acquaintance with
that prince of knaves , Dr. Miller ,
led us to expect this and more from
that bribe.takcr and unscrupulous
traitor. He bad made public charges
of bribery and corruption against the
Republican party. He had de
nounced Senator Hitchcock as a
thief , bribe eiver , dealer in Weat
Point cadetehJps , merely as a bid
to be bought off. He was bought
off. He exposed Cunningham for
hiH traurtulent surveys and then
sold out to him by retracting all be
bad aid. He boasted he would ex
plode a bombsboll in U. B. court
frauds , but again it was merely to
beeileuced. He has deplored ttie
immorality exi ting in the puli cs
of the country and insisted
form and Tilden.
IB His first act after the election was
a corrupt coalition , with the most
corrupt denator that ever disgraced
a sovereign State. His last plot is
to force upon the people of Nebras
ka this infamous senator by the al
lurements ol u letter from a Demo
cratic pi evidential candidate. He
knows that a man who would sell
out his party , as he nays Hitchcock
has agreed to do. will bt > faithless
to his pledge to those * who pur
chased it by their disgrace
Aud this is the Democratic leader
who proposes to lead the overDur-
deued taxpayers out of th sloughs
of corruption. Democrats ol Doug
las county , does it not make your
cheeks turn crimson with the bluth
of shame to think of it ? And you ,
Republicans , who have listened to
the hypocritical appeals of this dem
agogue , to rise aoove partizanship
in the interests of honesty and jus
tice , what do you think of this in
famous scoundrel ?
ANY journalist who would delib
erately prostitute , himself and his
journal in upholding bribery , per
jury and forgery , is a fit subject for
the penitentiary. We mean you ,
Mr. George Jj. Miller.
WHAT would the public think of
a firm who would offer a bribe * o
the book-keeper of a competing
house for the oetrsyal of his em
ployer's truste ? This only in a
tenfold degree is what Menator
Hitchcock ia guilty of.
IF it seems uncharitable in a
young man to resurrect from th
bitter past the relics of family feuds
presumed to be buried , all we have
to say in justification is that Miller
can thank Hitchcock with being the
author of their resurrection. It
was made ia the Kepublican less
than three years ago wnen Miller ,
still possessed of some degree of
manhood , exposed that corrupt ofh-
clal aud gave his pledge as a man of
honor to prove his charges before a
legislature or a court of justice.
ARK Democrats willing to have
their candidate for the highest of
fice in the girt of the American people
ple placed in the attitude of secur
ing judgment on his election by the
bribery of a corrupt Senator. If
not , then they must repudiatt ren
egade Miller , who has for prom
ised consideration agreed to use the
Tilden emergency as a whip-lash to
drive Democrats into the support of
a back-pay thief , a liar , a bribe-
giver , a bribe-taker , anrt a copartner -
nor with perjurers and forgers.

The sudden and extraordinary
disclosures revealed by the legisla
tive investigating committee yes
terday , at length reveal in an un-
mistakeable manner the character
and desperation of the most cor
rupt rlnj ? of publla plunderers that
ever infested a State. New York
has had a Tweed. Kansas a Pome-
roy , and Nebraska will in the future
point to the records that she his
had a Hitchcock. The boldness
and shamelessness of a scheme un
questionably gotten up in consulta
tion with Miller to serve as a thun
derbolt wherewith to drive men like
sheep to Hitchcock's support when
in a fever state of excitement , has ,
thanks to a conscience-stricken
abbettor in crime , been thwarted ,
and tne public are permitted to gaze
upon tbe true inwardness of this
high handed scheme. The revela
tions develop the fact that , presuni
ing that the B & M. railroad com
pany was , like himself , using money
to advance tbe interests of some par
ticular candidate , Senator Hitch
cock determined to get some au
thentic clue in order to use it as ei i-
dence whereby he might turn the
public in the important moment
from his own terrible record , mask
his own bribery resorts , create a
sudden sentiment in his favor
before it would be too late
to overcome the shock. To
accomplish this he eet his hirelings
to work with money to bribe a puor
clerk with sufficient inducement to
betray his trust and to steal a sup
posed document for the furtherance
of corrupt euds. Unfortunately , and
to the credit ot the company , no
such effort bad been made , and no
such documents were in existence.
With the inducement of a thousand
dollars , however , before him tbe
young man gave way to its enticing
allurements and committed tbe
double crime of forgery and perjury.
That he could not l.ave been entire
IT lost to a sense of honor , is evi
denced by his confession which he
sent to be delivered to Superinten
dent Irving , sfter be considered
himself 8&fe on his journey. Tills
confession * was the thunderbnltthat
struck back with double force at
the conspirators. Mr. Irving , recog
nizing the importance of quick ac
tion in the matter , took the bearer
of the clerk's message on a special
train for the scene where the trage
dy was to be consummated. With
truth as his weapon it did not take
long to upset the sudden Disclosures
of the purchased forger es. It was
now the opportunity for tbe oppo
nents of corruption 10 turn the tide.
With scarcely a moment'H notice
an investigation was ordered , the
Senator's private secretary forced to
tbe witness stand , aud before he
had an opportunity to belhh.k him
self , his testimony was secured
from him. Its purport as
shown by the dNpHtcliHH was a sur
prise to even tbe senator's most san
guine opponents. It was the direct
evidence of the senator's guilt aud
proved him to be a most ehamelees
villain How any one can support
this man in the .ace of such a din-
closure passes our comprehension.
No man who will do it can be pos
sessed of the faintest spark of hon
esty or self respect , ba he Republi
can or Democrat , and deserves the
eternal execration of all honorable
citiiens. We iiope the records will
produce no evidence or such de
praved characters.
The two organs of plunderers and
apologists of perjureis , liars , thieves
and villains , in thia city.charge that
Edward Bosewater , editor of tbe
BBE , has been drawing a stipend of
$100 per montn from the B. & M.
railroad company. The BEE , un
like these subsidized journals , throws
down the gauntlet and dares them
to the proof. The charges are as
false as are the forged documents on
the B. A M. officials. The only
money drawn on the B. & M. by the
BEE In the past year was for Job
work and advertising. Tbe figures
are produced elsewhere in this issue
with affidavits attached. On part
of tb work done -we have had , at
times , advances from that compa.
ny , aa we have from the Union Pa
cific company , and individuals with
whom we do business. Only two
days ago we drew $100 in money
from the Onion Pacinc Land De
partment as part advance pay
ment on work not yet
fully completed and delivered.
On tbe same eround that the other
charge is made , it could therefore
be charged that the BEE has been
bribed by the Union Pacific railroad.
Miller , Hitchcock , and their host of
accomplices further allege , as evi
dence that the BEE is bribed , tne
fact that the REE received an order
or 1,000 copies about tbe time of
the primaries. Now It BO happened
that the Union Pacific company
also ordered ' ,000 copies of tbe BEE
ast fall when tbe BEE published a
communication from a Lone
Tree correspondent Was the
BEK bribed by the Union Pacific
company because it tilled their or
ders ? The charge would come
with the same consistency from
that source , and yet the BEK Is-
called by them an enemy < 4f tue Un
ion raolfio railroad.
Having thus disposed of the
charge in relation to the BEE , let
us see bow it is with Dr. Miller and
Mi. Brooks : Miller is proven to
have been subsidized by the Union
Pacific road by tbe records which
show his interest in the railroad
eating-houses , his sudden somer
sault on the narrow-gauge , and
countless other instances. Brooks
has been proven to have drawn
$125.00 per month from the Union
Pacific company. The fact that his
name was on the pay-roll in the
Auditor's books has been proven ,
and one of the alleged charges
airaiust a clerk who wa dismissed
from tbs services of that company
last fall was that he had divulged
the secret , the truth , of. which was
thus admitted.
The Brains of Criminals.
Says tbe British Medical Journal :
In our last issue we published a
very interrestiug latter from our
Vienna correspondent , in which a
brief , summary was .was given of
Prof. Benedict's researches on the
brains and skulls of criminals.
The subject is an Important one ,
both from the pbpsiogical and psy
chological point of view , and it is to
be hoped that more extended and
more precise inquiry will be made
upon it , for the results which Mr.
Benedict nas obtained , though very
important , are not sufficiently nu
merous to warrant any large
Induction. Up to tbe pres
ent time Dr. Benedict has ex
amined the brains of sixteen crimin
al j , all of which , on comparison
with tne healthy brain , he finds to
be abnormal. Not only has he
found that these brains deviate
from the normal type , and approach
toward that of lower animals , but
he has been able to classify them ,
and with them the skulls in which
they were contained , in three cate
gories. These consist in : First ,
absence of symmeliy between the
two halves of the brain ; second , an
obliquity of the interim part of the
brain or skull in fact , u continua
tion upward of what we term a
sloping forehead ; third , a d 1st met
lessening of the po-lerior cere-
bal lobes , so that as in trie
lower animals , ti ! - > are not
large enough to hide the cerebel
lum. In all these peculiarities the
criminal's brain are distinctly of a
lower type than thee normal
men , and the intenir question
arises , how fur are ti e tvil acts of
the criminal to be att United to this
retrogade development ? Dr. Watts
can pardon tbe vicious pronennities
of'Dears and lions , " on tl.e ground
that -'God had made them HO. " If
he had foreseen these new inquiries
he might have felt less hopeful
when he bade his little readers not
not to "let their angry passions
rise. " The result of Dr. Benedict's
researches , if confirmed by further
examinations , will do much to
shake many beliefs now firmly
The Fashionable Doctor.
London Examiner.
One can tolerate a fashionable
lawyer , or even a fashionable bard ,
or a fashionable reviewer , whose
chief tin against nature and good
manners is his fondness for making
jokes in quaint language concern

does absorb an unreasonable amount
of attention from the girls , hebe ra

Hydrophobia Panic In
London Telegraph.
At Glasgow a terrible panic has
lately arisen , due to a widespread
popular belief that hydrophobia had
broken out theie in something like
an epidemic , or perhaps we should
say , epizootic form. Straightway
the police proceeded to slay all dogs
they found in the streets unmuzzled
and without responsible guardians
It would appear , however , that the
alarm has b en somewhat exagger
Dr. G. H. B ftlaclsod , the professor
ser cf surgery in the University of
Glasgow , has done > , rood rvice. by-
exploding this fact. In a popular
lecture he delivered the other night
at Crosshill he took occasion to say
that a great deal of the hydrophobia
about which they were mourning
in Glasgow was simply tbe creation
of terror. In fact , it would seem
that , just as by homeopa hie doae
of drugs one can sometimes cure
diseases by acting on them through
the imagination , so a tearful mala
dy may be generated by the opera
tions of overwrought fancy. In this
way people , when they read de
scriptions of the horrors ot hydro
phobic , which is an extremely rare
disease , imagine whenever a dog
scratches them that they are doom
ed to perish from foaming madness.
Now , aa Dr. McLeod wisely"eug -
gestB , there is little really to fear
from the bite of u dog in most cases ;
for even , be remarked if a mad
dog bit him through tbe clothes , he
would not care , because the ani
mal's teeth would be cleaned trom
poi'-ou by rubbine through the cloth ,
and there would be no fear ot bad
results. If persons were bitten by
dogit | was foolish to destroy the
snimal there and then , for more
than once he had known of cases
where men recovered from what
was thought to be hydrophobia
merely by being shown the dog
that had bitten them all sound and
clotLed in its right mind.

A Vicious Horse.
From the Knoxville ( Iowa ) Democrat.
A few days since u 14 year-old
aon of Mr. John Caue , living iu Per
ry township , this county , proceeded
to hitch up a team of tiorses for tbe
purpose of drawing wood , and ,
while eugaged , was furiously at
tacked by one of tbe horses , a
riddling , wi.ich had been owned by
tb.2 family for some time , and of
known vicioUHiaess.
The horse jumped upon tbe boy ,
threw him down , and , v 1th instinct
almodt human , knelt upon its
knees , the belter to bite its victim
One tiiumb 01 the boy was entirely
bitten off , one of his ears was torn
trom his Head , and a piece bitten
off , one of bis fiugera was nearly
bitten off * , and his arm above ihe el
bow was horribly mangled Ly the
teeth of the beast. Besides , tbe
boy's clothes were torn from his
person , and nis body badly bruised.
The boy's mother , and sister ,
knowing the dangerous character of
the horse , were watching out of a
window , and seeing tbe attack ,
hastened to the child's relief. Each
of the women graspsd clubs , and
with them actually knocked the
horse entirely down before it would
cease its attack upon the boy , and
when it did so , ) t wjth great fury
turned its attention to them , and in
the fight the clothes of both the
women were sadly demoralized.
The horse some time before had
attacked and nearly killed a former
owuei , and it is said once upon a
time it bit aud crushed to death a
man near Des Moines.

Is the life , but bad blood is the abomli.a-
lion. From it and derangement of the kid
neys and urinary organs , come most of tha
and aches and all diseases of the skin ,
Buns ' King Cure is a remedy that is
intended to strike at the root of this trouble.
It acts as a diuretic ovacnant in cases of
Dropsy. Gout , Gravel , and all diseases of
the Kidneys , while it acts on the stomach
as a tonic. It moderately accelerates the
circulation , gently encourages the action of
the bowels and powerfully augments the
urinary secretion purifies and cleanses the
blood , thus removing the cause of boils ,
carbuncles , scrofula and all eruptive and
cutaneous diseases ; reduces inflammatory ,
rheumatic and neuralgic pains and achei ,
allays inQmmation of thelkidneys.glandsand
fibrous tisues and joint ? , softens and carries
off gravel and other calculus deposits of the
urinary organs ; cures Diabetes. Bright'8
Kidney Disease , Lucorrhea , ( Female Weak
ness ) . Scrofula and all diseases arising from
disorder of the uriny organs and impure
state of the blood , and especially adapted to
female complaints. It is a safe and pleas
ant alterative , and cures without depleting
the stomgth of the organs or the tune of the
genonTl system. In other countries its rep
utation was so high that it gained the title
of "King's Cure. A daily use of it will in
most cases prevent , and in all cases mitigate
the attack of the diseases for which it is re
commended. It is beneficial for washing
eruptive discharges on the skin ; but for run
ning sores , or severe pains ta tbe joints use

Is the act of discharging irom the throat
and chest matter that arisesfrom colds , in
stead of scattering and distributing it
through the blood , and ppisoninc it. By
thus assisting the Lungs , Throat and Chest ,
Dr. Green's Expectorant cures Colds ,
Coughs. Asthma. Bronchitis , Croup , Dyp-
thena. Whoopin ? Cengh and all affections
of the Lungs , Throat and Chest , and the
first stages of Consumption and Typhoid
Fever. Its qualities are Expectorant , Seda
tive Factorial and Alternative. It does not
stop the cough as most preparations do , by
their anodyne and astringent effects , retain
ing the mucous and offending matter in tha
blood and causing permanent disease of the
Lungs , but it cures by loosening the cough
and assisting the lungs and throat to throw
off the offending matter , which causes the
cough , thus scientifically making the cure
perfect. It at once alleviates the mast dis
tressing cold on the lungs , soothes and allays
irritation , and breaks up Whooping Cough.
No better remedy can be found for Asthma.
Bronchitis. Croup and all affections of the
Throat Lungs and Chest , and if continued

tion , Lung and Typhoid Fever.

Pills will assist nature. No better cathar
tic can be found ,

row it is dead and gone ; life at best is short

is still unsolved. Life , however , can be pro
longed , the weak and feeble body made

The different editions of THE Sex during
the year will be the same as during the year
that has just passed. The daily edition will
on week days be a sheet of four pa pes and
on Sunday sbeet of eight pages , of 56 broad
columns ; while the weekly edition will be
a sheet ol eight pages of the same dimen
sions and character that are already famil
iar to our friends.
Tax SUN will continue to be the strenuous
advocate of reform and retrenchment , and
of the substitution of statesmanship , wis
dom , and integrity for hollow pretense , im
becility and fraud in the administration of
public offairs. It will contend for the gov
ernment of the people by the people and for
the people , as opposed to government by
frauds in tne ballot-box and in the counting
of votes , enforced by military violence. It
will endeavor to supply its readers a body
not tar from a million souls with the most
careful , complete , and trustworthy accounts
of current events , and will employ for this
purpose a numerous and carefully selected
staff of reporters and correspondents. Its
report ! from Washington , especially.will be
full , accurate , and fea less : and it will
doubtless continue to deserve and enjoy the
hatred of those who thrive hy plundering
the Treasury or by usurping what the law
does not give them , while it will endeavor
to merit the confidence of the public by de
fending t : e rights of the people again .t the
encroachments of unjustified powers.
The price of the daily sun will be 55 cents
a month or $6.50 a ye r , post paid or with
he Sunday edition 87 70 a year.
The -nnday edition .alone , eight paves.
51.20 a year post paid.
The weakly Sun , eight pages of 56 broad
columns , will be furnished during 1877at the
rate of Zl a year , post paid.
The benefit of this large reduction from
the previous rate for the weekly can be en
joyed by individual subscribers without the
necessity of makinr up clubs. At the same
time if any of our friends choosb to aid in
extending our circulation , we shall be grate
ful to them , and every such person who
sends us ten or more subscribers from one.
place will be entitled to one copy of the
Siper fo-- himself without charge. At one
ollar a year , postage paid , the expenses of
paper ana printing are barely repaid ; and
considering the size of the sheet and'the '
qualitp of its contents , we are confident the
people will consider the weekly Sun the f
cheapest newspaper published in the world ,
and we trust aisonne of the very best.
