RUSSIA is passing through the pre
liminary crisis of a great revolution.
The Czar has put the most populous
districts including the Russian capital
under martial lawwith leading Gener
als as military Governors , which goes
to show that the Government is in
desperate straits.
CONGRESSMEN who have returned
to Washington from northern Penn
sylvania report the people in the
northern tier of counties are thorough
ly aroused , and the feeling towards
the Democrats is almost as hitter as
during the rebellion ; that the war
spirit of the people is up , and they
demand that the Republicans in Con
gress and the President shall not com
promise with rebel dictation.
THE Chinese who go South to labo ;
on the cotton and sugar plantation
will not endure the insults and abua
the colored laborer has had to put up
with. The Chinese are as revengefu
as the Indian or any other copper-col
ored race , and if they are beaten o
abused will have revenge soon as an
opportunity presents itself. The bru
tal overseer will soon come to grief if
he applies the lash to the Chinese la'
borer.
ANY Governor of any State of the
American Union who says he will
never interfere to pardon or commute
the sentence of a condemned criminal
convicted of capital crime , is unfit to
be the Governor of any State , just
like that inflexible fellow in Vermont ,
who permitted the judicial murder of
Phair from political motives. [ Onvaha
Herald.
Any Governor who thwarts and de
feats the ends of justice by setting his
o .vn judgment above that of a core
ner's jury , sixteen grand jurors ,
twelve petit jurors , one district judge
and a majority of the supreme court ,
for the protection of an assassin
through the exercise of the pardoning
power , excepting where new and re
liable evidence is produced establish
ing the innocense of the convicted , is
until to be the Governor of any State
least of all'the State of Nebraska.
Instead of being an accessory to the
judicial murder of Phair , the Gover
nor of Vermont is entitled to the re
spect and confidence of his constitu
ency , for being inflexible in his deter
mination not to misuse the pardoning
poorer. New facts developed since
Phair was executed fully establish his
guilt and the justice of his conviction
and execution , notwithstanding his
protestations of innocence on the scaf
fold , which ninety-nine out of every
hundred murderers convicted upon
circumstantial evidence do with as
much emphasis and show of sincerity
as Phair.
By all odds the most vital issue for
the people ef the West , and particu
larly the producers of the region west
of the Missouri river , is the question
of cheap transportation. No matter
how productive our lands are no
matter how Troll our soil and climate
are adapted to grain and cattle rais
ing , the vital question is how much
has the producer to pay for transport
ing his grain and cattle to market 1
That the development and future
prosperity of Nebraska are in a great
measure dependent upon cheap trans
portation every intelligent person
conceeds. That there are great abuses
in the present transportation system
nobody dares deny. It is only
by exposing the oppressive
exactions and unjust discrimi
nation of transportation monopolies
that tho'people can hope for redress of
their grievances. Among the most
flagrant abuses which have become the
common practice of western railway
companies , is the discrimination
against stock-raisers , which is pointed
out by Major Balcombo in a letter
that appears over his name in another
column.
No branch of industry promises
greiter benefits to all classes of our
producers than meat packing and the
exporting of * , 'meats in the smallest
compass. The development of this
industry cannotfliowever , assume the
proportions which it should grow to
.a * long as the transportation oom-
pmies discriminate against this indus
try by charging high rates. Unless
Major Balcombe has beenrjBiiain-
focmed there certainly is room for a
revision in the livestock and packed
meat
CAPITAL PUNISHMENT IN NE
BRASKA.
The tragic end of Dr St. Louis , an
the appoaching execution of tha
woman-butcher Richards , is th
source of a good deal of sentimenta
bosh about the brutality and inhn
manity of capital punishment. Nov
the prime object of capital punish
ment is not so much the punishmen
of the assassin by retaliation in thi
killing of his body , as the protection o
society against a dangerous brute
The law of capital punishment L
derived primarily from the Mosai' '
code which is based on the iaw of self
preservation. The following extrac
from that law forcibly illustrates thi
objects of capital punishment. Thi
twenty-first chapter of Exodus , versei
28 and 29 , read as follows :
If an oz gore a man or a woman tha
they die , then the ox shall be surely stoned
but the owner of the ox shall be quit.
But if the oxwere wont to push with hij
horn in time past , and it hath been test !
fied to his owner , and be hath not kept bin
in , but that he hath killed a man or worn
an , the ox shall bo stoned , and his ovna
alto ilio.ll It put to death.
Here we have the basis of the law
of capital punishment. The average
murderer is endowed with the same
brutal instincts that make a mad bull
running at large dangerous * , and so
ciety , as a matter of self-proteotion ,
makes him forever harmless by exe
cuting him. Under the Mosaic code
the owner of a mad bull was responsi
ble for the killing of man or woman ,
and punishable for murder if he al
lowed the beast to run at large , know
ing his vicious disposition , and for the
same reasoi. the Governor who would
set an assassin at large ought to be
held as an accomplice to the next
murder committed by the liberated
murderer.
Take this man Richards , for in
stance. His slaughter of half a dozen
men and women was committed , not
for lust or lucre , but by a mania for
killing. Does anybody doubt that he
would kill again if he had a chance ?
S'ippose his sentence was commuted
to life imprisonment , would he not
kill when an opportunity offered itself
for escape from the penitentiary ? And
yet Richards was convicted upon his
own confession , which without corrob
orative evidonca is as unreliable as the
protestations of Dr. St. Louis were ol
his innocence. Then why all this sou-
timentalism about capital punishment !
Isn't this harvest of murderers only
the fruit of our past leniency ? The
editor of this paper has lived in Ne
braska * nearly sixteen years , and
during that period not less
than forty men , women and children
have been murdered in Omaha alone ,
and fully as many have been fatally
beaten , shot , stabbed and poisoned in
other sections of the State. In al
these sixteen years just one Nebraska
murderer has been executed on the gal
lows. The othershave for the most par
been set at large through pardon bro
kers and only about half a dozen re
main in the penitentiary awaiting thei :
: hance for another raid on society.
THE death of General John A. Dix
will produce profound regret among
ill patriotic citizens of this country.
Few Americans have lived a more
jventul and honorable career. John
4. . Dix was a native of BoscawenN w
Hampshire , where he was born July
J4th , 1798. Entering the army in
L812 he resigned after sixteen years
lervice and entered upon the practice
if law. He actively entered politics
is a Democrat in 1842 , was elected to
he assembly in 1845 ; was made Sena-
or in Congress for the unexpired
erm of Silas Wright ; in 1852 , was
ppointed Assistant Treasurer of the
Jnited States in New York city , and
a 1859 was made postmaster ; in Do
ember , I860 , he was appointed Fresi
ent Buchanan's Secretary of the
'reasury in place of Howell Cobb.
[ e served under President Lincoln's
dministration , taking , decided
round for the Union , and
as always been ranked one of
le strongest adherents of the
Republican parcy. At the outset of
10 war he was appointed a Major
eneral of the New York National
uard ; in May , 1861 , commissioned
[ ajor General of United States vol-
nteers , and subsequently received the
line rank in the regular army , and
id charge of the department of Mary-
nd in 18G2 , from whence he was
ansferred to Fortress Monroe. Dnr-
ig the riots in New York he was mil-
ary commander of that department ,
'e was appointed minister to Paris in
5CG , and in 1872 elected Governor of
ew Yurk. Ho was again nominated
11874 , and defeated by Tilden. This
ided his political career.
General Dix was ono of the active
ipportera of the Pacific Railroad
heme and when the Union Pacific
ailroad Company was organized he
icame its President , which position
) held until after the road was com *
eted.

FREIGHTAGE QH LIVE STOCK.
The Railroad Companies B
tween the Meat Producing
Region and the Seaboard
Discriminate Against
our Paramount
Interest.
The western half of Nebraska ,
sasDakota , and Montana and Colorado
nature has devoted almost exclusive ! ;
to the growing of cattle , sheep , horse
and mules. Eastern Nebraska ii t
market a large portion of its agricul
tural and manufactured products ii
this stock-raising and mineral regioi
and market its bountiful oorn crops b ;
condensing them into additional flesl
on cattle purchased from the abovi
great nursery , and the sheep and hog
it produces for the eastern markets.
In the near future meat produc
tion is to be the paramount interest o
this entire community ; whataver inju
rious burden is imposed upon this bus
iness , concens our general welfari
more than that of all other intoresti
combined , and there is one feature o :
this vital interest which has nevei
been brought to public notice by th <
Press of this community , the mosi
deeply interested portion of the Re
public , viz : the 'freightage and othei
charges on live stock and fresh meati
to the eastern and European markets.
Of course our meat product musl
be transported a long * distance to find
an ample market ; a very large portion
of it finally reaches the seaboard , and
some the European markets. Iti
transportation costs three orfourtimei
it production , hence its transportation
is the most important element.
There are about four thorough rail
road lines between us and the sea
board , and they are all in pool com
binations , and for some unknown rea
son they are more severe on this one
paramount interest than on any other ;
they charge the producer about
twice as much for simple transporta
tion per car load of live stock than
they do for carrying any other staple
article to the eastern markets , and
what is still more unaccountable , they
charge for transporting a refrigerator
car loaded with slaughtered cattle
more than they do a car loaded with
live stock. It is estimated that the
railroads of the entire country trans
port about 100,000,000 of cattle ,
sheep , horses , mules and swine every
year , and when you contemplate the
fact that the producers of stock are
charged twice as much freightage on
their products as is charged for the
transportation of any other staple ar
ticle , you must realize that the amount
involved in this unjust discrimination
"is enormous ; " and there is no other
community of people in this Republic
so vitally interested in this subject as
this the great central stock growing
region , so far from the great body of
jonsumers. Therefore , this gross dis-
: rimination against this great and
growing interest should be thoroughly
discussed , for it is through such in
vestigation , in * this country , that in
justice is brought to light and finally
remedied , by the force of public opin
ion and legislation.
Will some one be so kind as to ren-
ler some good reason for this dis-
irimination against our special indus-
; ry ? Undoubtedly a specious showing
nay be made in favor of a small per-
: entage of increase of freightage
sharges on live stock and fresh meats
> ver those other freights on account o
he supposed greater risk involved
tut will anybody dare to say that ox
icrience has demonstrated that it is
iccessary to charge more than 10 per
ent increase to cover this extra
iabilityl
Why isit , that twice as much freight
ge is charged on a ton of slaughtered
attle , as is charged on a ton of wheat
ron , coal or corn ?
Why is it , that more is charged for
ransporting a carload of slaughtered
attle than la charged for transporting
i carload of live cattle ?
Why is it , that when it costs $60 to
btain the transportation of a carload
f ordinary freight from Chicago to
Tew York , it costs a $120 to obtain
! ie transportation of a carload of live
tock ? ST. A. D. BALCOMBE.

Joard thieves and perjurers and un-
tung scoundrels whom he appointed
o office.
Down with the devil born amend
ments !
Down with centralism and its hints
f'crown and scepter !
Down with the pictures of Lincoln
nd the scoundrels who surrounded
iim in the battle days of 1861-65 !
Down with every anti-Democratic
lea and idol !
These be the watchwords for 1880.
'he Negrro Exodus and the Chinese
Question ,
ick&burg Herald.
There is another effect it will have
eyond any sort of doubt. It will re-
pen the Chinese immigration ques-
ion with ten-fold force. California
lay not want the Chinese ; if the
louth is robbed of her labor , she will ,
nd what is more , she will have them ,
'hose who imagine that a section of
he Union that produces 5,000,000
ales of cotton , and rice , sugar , tobac-
o , etc. , in proportion , will submit to
'eine ' deprived of any material part of
ts labor , are poor judges of the spirit
f our people. There is already a
lovement on foot to call a convention"
f leading men of the States bordering
lie Mississippi Valley to take into
onsideration this matter. The largest
otton producers , merchants , business
ion of all sorts , and men who count
heir wealth by hundreds of thous-
nds of dollars , are fully in favor of
t once starting a line of steamers
etween New Orleans and China that
rill bring millions of laborers here if
ecessary. One individual of those
ho have inaugurated this counter
lovement produces 10,000 bales of
atton , and declares that he will start
line of vessels himself rather Jfaan
rant for labortto carry on his planta-
ons. Another one declares he will
o to China himself rather than want
> r labor. Hundreds and thousands
ill go into it. Southern Congress-
ion will be requested to change
trat on the Chinese immigration
aestion , and instead of circumscrib-
ig the Burlingame Treaty , will be re-
nested to use all the means in their
swer to secure terms more liberal
id pleasing to the Chiness. If our
'orthern friends , whoconsider it their
Fe-long business to interfere in our
Eun , Kill let us alone , all will bo
well. The negroes will be secured ii
all their rights , and we will solve th
race problem by an exercise of patience
tienco , honesty and justice. But i
they do not leave us alone , and per
sist in enticing the labor of the Soutl
away , and furnishing it the means t <
go , they may rest assured the Soutl
will prove-herself equal to herself
