record as an army chaplan that were
published in the Rochester , N. Y. ,
papers when he was running for pem-
tentiaty inspector in New York , and
which were republished by the BEE
during the memorable constitution
campa-'gn in 1871.
That record laid Delsma'yr ' as cold
as a wedge in New York , and would
have defeated him in Indiana two
years ago had it been published. And
why it was not published is because
we mislaid the document.
TUB graceful apolocy that Mr.
Gladstone has made to the emperor of
Austria serves to show just what soit
ot man ho is. During the late can
vass , which will over be held memor
able , in arraigning the foreign policy
of tbo BeaconsBold ministry , he was
especially denunciatory of what he
considered the prasping power of
Auftrio. He accused that power of
scheming to coerce the people of the
Lallans , thus violating the spirit , if
not the letter , of th < s Berlin treaty.
3e disovers now , after having made
he s'ateinents ' that he he did , that
hey were faho , and words imputed to
he Emperor of Aus'ria , he put into
lis mouth at second hand. He has
lastened to make an apology , and in
writing that coveretgn's reprrsenta-
ive he assures him that it is his de
sire to make "amends as public as his
speech.1 Few men in the position
, u which ho has been elevated , would
ever have taken pains to find out
whether these statements were wrong
or not , aud once found our , would not
have been as hasty to make retraction
and apologize. . It is a great relief after
the days of Beacomfiold to find a man
at the head cf affairs in Great Britain
who docs not deem it beneath him
to make amends in so far as
heVnaybo able for what he may have
fctated in good faith , being assured
that it was true. We are romindec
that it will bo on era of good feeling
for America to have a gentleman to
deal with in our relations -with the
British government , which qualities
we , as all other people , failed to detect
in BeaconsGeld.
THIBD-TKIUIISU received its death
blow at Chicago Monday when Senator
Logan and the adherents of the ex-
president withdrew from the county
convention because they could not con
trol it. Instead of a spontaneous
movement of the people , the attempt
Io nominate Gen. Grant has degener
ated into a disgraceful scramble for
power and plunder by a sel
ot reckless politicians who made
his prior administration odious
by their collusion with whisky crooks ,
army contractors and jobbers of all
sorts. The attempt of theConkliog's ,
Cameron's and Logan's to force the
nomination of the ex president againsi
the known aversion of tbe great body
of the republican pirty has producec
a reaction that manifests itself no
where more forcibly than | in the
home state of General Grant
The revolt fgwnst third-terraijm in
Illinois has assumed proportions tha
cannot be ignored by the national con
vention. That body will never allow
John A. Logan to wreck the republi
can parly on the sime rock upon
which , twenty years ago , he wreckei

Bon Butler , then both rampant pro
slavery bourbons , got up a double
header that fplit the democracy in the
middle.
NOTWITHSTANDING ll that has been
said concerning Grant's strengtn in
Massachusetts , it is considered certain
that Le will secure but two of the 26
votes that she will cast at the Chicago
convention. Congressman Claflln am
others have been advertising the prob
ability of his securing from six to ten
delegates , but the republicans who
know exactly how the delegates already
chosen stand state definitely that only
ex-Senator Boutwell , a member of
Grant's second cabinet , and George A.
Marden , editor of the Lowell Courier ,
will vote for Grant.
Business Combinations.
Bndatretfs Weekly Review.
Perhaps the most striking feature
of the age in commercial andf manu
facturing affairs is the irresistible ten
dency toward association and organiz
ation. From the mighty railway com
binations which bestride our conti
nent down to the most insignificant
tailors union , the forca of drcum-
stinces seem to compel the orgniz-
ation of each interest into a body
which shall prescribe rules and secure
miforra action for the general benefit
V\e have pools , combinations and
unions of railway owners and railway
employes , of iron manufacturers and
ron workerf.andmuch'the '
same thing'
extends through all
classes of manu-
acturing down to tanners , carpsnten.
tone TOjaont. and bricklayera. "Yet
associations of wholesale and retail
dealers except for the' purpose aof
jtablishiog exchanges or clearing-
louses for facilitating some pafticoLtr
ranch of bustoeea are tare , while

re almost unknown. The boards of
ra4e"in many cities in some measure
> erform the duties of ericS" asiocla-
ions , in protecting and' encouraging
eneral interests , but they never at-
ain the point of laying down special
ules or protecting the special interests
of one branch of trade against others.
The rules lately adopted by the
weztern association of flint glass
manufacturers at Pittsburgh affords an
Uustration of the length to which this
tendency has gone. The attention
which the rules of this organization
give to the minutest particulars of the
rade extends to fixing the price which
minufactorers shall charge for the
joxea and barrels In which their goods
are packedr For the'enforcement" of
its rules the association relics wholly
on its own powers , not only among its
own members , but among purchasers ,
and dealers who submit , or who
challenge the regulations upon the
settlement of their bills , will be con
fronted and dealt with by the united
power of the whole organization. This
Is by no meins an extreme case. Tha
( light particulars in which this com
bination acts outside and regardless of
the principles of law are a mere
bagatelle to some of the features of
greater or more powerful associations.
It is hardly necessary to point out
that combinations of all kinds inter
fere with the free operation of the
laws of trade , and tend to militate
against the democratic spirit of a com
munity of small traders , each govern
ing himself by the natural laws of
business and the -statute laws which
apply to alL The tendency of com
binations is to set up rules of conduct

than justice. The trade associations
and the workingm'en's unions sty to
their antagonists : You must obey our
rules or we will black list you , or
strike or lock-out , ss tbe case my be.
This principle carried to its ut
most extent means pushing the
weakest to the wall and
the plutocratic domination of the
strongest. The extreme cases of this
sort may be said to be the railway
pool , to which the wishes and rights of
the shipper ai to the route , time and
terms npon which his goods shall be
transported are an unknown quantity ;
the refining organization in the petro
leum trade , which drove competition
out of that int ° rest and held all its
branches at its own disposal ; and ,
inally , the Amalgamated Association
of Iron and Steel workers of tha West ,
whose union and strength secures for
ts members ihe highest wages.paid teeny
ony iron workers in the world. Ic is a
strong testimony to the moderation and
ntolligence of our working classeatlnt
his association , when its authority is
acknowledged , is more moderate in its
demands and more careful of the inter-
sts of ils employers than are the
other organizations instanced. The
recent decline of iron at Pittsburg , for
example , and the accompanying re
duction in wages , was not only ac
ceded to , but supported by the Amal
; amated Association , which dis
countenanced and prevented any
strike against the reduction in
wages. Instances of a similar care for
the interests of those with whom they
deal , find a corresponding concession
; o help them out of a tight place , are
likely to be rare in the annils of rail
way or oil combinations.
The raising up of bodies of greater
or less magnitude , possessing in many
cases great and unrestrained powers
over the fortunes of many people , and
making and administering their own
regulations , is antagonistic to the
spirit of our own institution ? , and not
without peril to integrity and suprem
acy of our laws. But the instincts oi
se'f-defence and self-interest , and the
circumstances which urge the policy
of combination and association , seem
to bo irresistible , and its necessity
must bo accepted as a fixed fact. It
only remaina to hope that its ortom
forma flaay be avoided , and tha a re
actionary policy may set in to j > rovid
legal restraints npon the abuses of
power which may arise out of such
combination aud work violence upon
public interests or threaten danger to
public safety.
The Land-Grab Scheme.
Ilastlugs Ncbraaknn.
There unfortunately is but too much
reason to faar that tha scheme to turn
over the body of our western lands , in
largo tracts , into the hands of cattle
kings and speculators , not only is not
abindoned , but h s but too muoh
hope and prospect of ultimate success.
The fact is , that there are several
powerful influences babind it. Most
noticeable is the cattle interest. This
represents a large amount of money ,
as well as an amount of brain that is
not to be despised. A more efficient
and powerful lobby than they con
stitute seldom besoiges the hl's of
congress.
Then by some means , as yet not
apparent , several of the so-called
scientists , who , in times past , have
been auoiated in or with the Haydpn
survey , are in it. They sent out cir
culan , carefully addressed to particu
lar parties , who they knew would au-
sweraa tlioy desired , and use these as
clinchers to back up their own asser
tions that the country is not suscepti
ble of cultivation.
Their scientific reputation giv.es au
thority to thcirstatements , while their
quiet , private way of making them
eludes notice aud refutation. Wheth
er they aio self deceived as to tha ca
picity of the country , as apparently
shown during their trips through it ,
without taking into consideration the
climatic changes gong on , and accel
erated by settlement , or , whether thrj
ire wilfully misleading congress , we
do not know.
But that tbey are { nmleading ant
deceiving is beyond question. Their
scheme it a most iniquitous one ; an :
it is humiliating indeed that so caller !
scientific men should be engaged in
such a villainous scheme-virtually to
steal the patrimony of the people.
Nothing could be worse for coming
generations , and for the future of our
community , than to have this fair do
main delivered over irretrievably to
these quasi feudal cattle-lords.
We certainly hope there will be
some man or men clear-headed and
strong enough to put a quietus on this
iniquitous pot ! for such it is against
the interests and welfare of the people.
Ohio Surely an Anti-Grant State.
Cincinnati Commercial ( Ind. )
We feel authorized to say to all con
cerned that if Grant is nominated at
Chicago , Ohio will not be for the third-
term party , either in October or No
vember. We believe that Hamilton
county would give a majority of five
or six thousand voles against the
third-term ticket. Ohio is a re
publican slate , but not a third-
; crm Grant state. Will the des
peradoes who are determined to drive
7ith the republican party into a can-
lidacy utterly inconsistent with repub-
icinism take notica before it is too
ate ? We know as much about Ham-
[ ton county politics as anybody , and
we are absolutely frea to apeak out
ha whole truth respective of nomi
nations , for nominations bind us cnly
o far as we approver them , and we
biok it the proper thin ? to speak
plainly before the forks of the read
re reached. _

BATTLE CREEK , TVTay 10. At the
' and im-
present rate of 'development
migra'ioD , it become ! evident that
thera will be room and strong support
for not less than four first-class towns
in Madi-on county. Battle CreeV , as
fear of a successful
one of them , hss no
ful rivalry from any town nearer than
fifteen to eighteen miles.
The bottom lands of the Elkhorn
river are not less than five or six miles
wide at this point , and a Urge area of
fertile lands lie along the channel of
the creek from which the town dsrivea
its name , and which is a stream of re-
mart able purity and beauty.
The surrounding portion of Madi-
aon county early became a leading
section in developing the live stock
industry , " partly on account of the
* _ - * , ' " * r n. pi. j and
largely on account of a few enterpris
ing , able men , who were among the
first settlers , and who cannot , to-day ,
keep from pushing business of some
kind , sny more than they can refrain
from breathing.
Whila Battle Breek hai one busy
flouring mill of two rum , and as live
ly a trade as any town of its size , yet
the first important industry tint
c'aims attention i tha raising and fat
tening of ca'tle. ' The herds of f t
cattle that I have yet found in tbe
state are within two miles of this
phca. In the first place , nearly every
animal is "native that is reared among
Nebraika farmeror , in some other"
civi'iz'd ' communHy where good
breeding and good care are apparent
in style.
Mr. F. G. Ha'e , who , with bis
brother ? , D. A. and J. A Hale , have
been among the foremost among
breeders and shippers , took me through
bis yard of 150 choice fat steer ? , aud
then improvised a three-minute rig
aud took me to the large and well-
managed stock farm of J. F. Ticdjen ,
two miles distant Mr. Hale hai four-
year-olds weighing 1,600 t > 1,900
and a glance at the style and breed of
the an unals , and then at the way they
are fed and sheltered , telli the whole
story. Any of Texas or Montana ori
gin are rare , and Mr. Hale evidently
does not mean to waste corn in fur
nishing fuel for animal heat to combat
tha cold and storms that gaed shelter
can better and more cheaply accom
plish. His sheds era only such ai can
be supplied by any firmer in the state
who has an abundance of prairie h y
and a supply of posts and yole , yet
they hive been kept so well repaired
that storms could nut strike tbe in
mates even during the roughest of
weather. 'The fronts , instead of be
ing left open in the usual way , are en
tirely enclosed with the exception of a
few open door-ways. Even animal in
stinct seems to appreciate this kind
and economical management .and
no injury has ever resulted from the
violence of the more turbulent mem
bers of the hard. In feeding ilia ani
mals are at all times supplied w.th an
abundance.of bay , shelled "CTU , ear
corn and salt. "Water Is regularly and
abundantly supplied' from Wells , in
stead of trusting to the blind chance
of getting a supply from a ttroim ,
which may , just when most needed ,
be frozen over or drifted full < f snow-
In winter , or be shrunken to an unre
liable mud-hole in summer 1 deem
this detailed notice duo , not only in
recognition of the management of a
gentleman at once humane and cue-
cesjful in the beef-producing line of
business , but to suggest to Illy minds
of numerous readers what ni'ght bo
adopted by hundreds of feeders , for
their own profit and for the credit of
the state , which , within twenty yoais ,
must become the loading boof-jro-
ducing state of the Union.
Mr. Fledjen now farms 1120 acres
in one body , 100 of which is occupied
with cultivated timber. He , besides
other farming , has 400 head of cattle ,
140 of which ho ia feeding for market )
and which ara of the same general
class as tbcsa'of Mr. Hale. Ho had
previous to my visit shipped 40 head
of cattle and throe earn of hogj all
his own. His buildihgi , while perhaps
no more comfortable than thoeo before
described , are of a more permanent
character and so novel ai to bo worth
description. His barn a largo part
of which is ashed open on one s.de is
180 feet long , frame apd sidei made
of fine timbers but covered with a
thatch of prairie gras ? , eo adroitly and
carefully plainted as to be a wonder in
any locality this side of Denmark and
Holland. It is certain that Yankee
genius has never been directed
largely to this industry. Mr. Fledjen
says he knows from experience that
such a roof will last no less that ( forty
years. When prairie grass and reeds
are so abundant as in Nebraska , that
fact is worth remembering. The
whole covering is about one foot In
thickness and so neatly laid that
nothing but the wcody lower ends of
the grass are exposed to the action of
the elements. Both the leivcs ana
cresting of this enormous roof are aa
neatly trimmed and as shapely in out *
line ai if a monster slab or sheet of
metal were usad instead of a mtre re
fuse product of western lands.
I saw enough of careful
stock management in two hours at
Battle Creek to convince me that a
large number of herd masters in Ne
braska have yet much to leain con
cerning the most profitable methods
of handling snd preparing beeves for
market.
D. A. Hale has , during the past
winter and spring , shipped vast quan
tities of oats to Wyoming and Colora
do markets , and is now engaged in
stock and grain shipping from Madi
son.
son.A. . J. Hale , the Irrepressible Jack ,
formerly sheriff of Madison county ,
and now widely known as one of the
mott successful freighters to the Black
Hills , has just arrived there from
th's place with hia usual spring ship
ment of fat cattle and hogs , which he
drives by the Elkhorn route , carrying
feed by ox-trains to keep his stock in
condition till the Kress on the upper
plains affyrdi a good supply. He has
now a ranch ot 1800 sheep at the
Htllf , and will receive in June 6000
heid more , which were bought in
New Mexico the past winter.
A. B. Richardson , an old patron of
THB BBE , keeps a well-stocked livery
and fitted out eight York state farm
hunters with riding gear the day Ivh-
ited the place. It is claimed there are
good , fair lands in the west part of the
county yet vacsnt and subject to
homestead entry.
The well-known store so lon kept
by J.-H. McLary & Co. , has been
bought out' by GL W. Logan , lately

been purchased and rebuilt by Mr. 8.
H. Fletcher , who keeps one of
the best hotels in this part of the
state. George 8. Hurford , who has

postmaster , has now one of the fioest
and best furnished drug stores in tha
North Platle country. B. H. Max

SANTA OLAUS FOUND.
Greatest Discovery of tbe Age.
Wonderful discoveries in the world have been made
Among other things where Santa Clans stayed ,
Children oTt ask if he makes roods or not ,
If really he lives in a mountain of snow.
Last year an excursion sailed clear to tba Pol *
And suddenly dropped into whatseemedllkeahoU
Where wonder of wonders they found anowland ,
tfhile fairy-like beings appeared on each hand.
There were mountains like ours , with mor *
beautiful preen ,
And far brighter skies than ever were seen ,
Birds with the hoes of a rainbow were found ,
While flowers of exquisite fragrance wen trow
" Ing around.
Hot long were they left to wonder In doubt.
A bemsr soon cams they had beard much about ,
Twas Santa Clans' self and th llthcy all say ,
He I eked like the picture a * every day.
He drove ap a team that looked Terr queer ,
Twu a team f eraashoppen instead of reindeer ,
Be rode In a shell instead of a slidgb ,
But he took them on bovd and drove them
away.
Be showed them an uver his wonderful realm ,
And factories making goods for women and nun.
Furriers were working on hit * great and small ,
To Bonce's tbev said they were sending them an.
Kris Kindle , tbe Glove Maker , told them at once , I
All ocr Gloves we are sending to Bonce ,
Santa showed them suspenders and many thfars
mere.
Saying I alse took these to friend Bunco's store.
Santa , Clans then whispered a secret he'd tell ,
A * in Ooiaha every one knew Bonce wen ,
He therefore should send his goods to hi can ,
Knowing his friecdf wfll get their full shve.
How remember ye dwellers in Omaha town ,
