THE Republican U trying to poo-poo
ilo well authenticated report that the
river bottom , upon which the North
ern Nebraska and B. & M. railroads
hnro tracks under construction , iras
maliciously flooded by parties in the
employ of the U. P. Now there isn't
any more doubt that this outrage was
planned by uomo of the U. P. mana
gers than there 2s that the tame par
ties hare for months been placing
other obstructions to the building of
tlee tracks. We donlt charge or even
presume thai Jsy Gould knew per
sonally about this dastardly plot , but
wo maintain that parties on the U. P.
pay rolls did have a hand in it.
THE South American war betwean
Chili and Peru was virtually termin
ated by the capture of Arici by the
Chilians. The fighting has been
mostly on water , though some hard-
fought battles have [ taken place on
land. The second invasion of Peru ,
which culminated in the seizure of
irica , like the first , whose result was
the capture of Tarapaca and the dc-
trnction of tl el ied army , has been
uniformly successful for the Chilians
tluroughout , though they contend *
d with , greater numbers. The
fruit of this last victory affords
ample .recompense for the ex
pense incurred Jand the hardships
bima by the Chilians. The downfall.
of Arica completely cnta off Bolivia
from the Pacific , secures for Chili an
other province of Pern , gives her con
trol of 500 milei of seacoast and dis
poses of everj obstacle in the field
except the garrisons of Lima and
OalltOj whichjare , however , both at the
aercy of the Chilian fieei , and their
rubjugation is apparently a question
ef time , and very little time at that.
Peru is now in as b dly shattered a
condition aa Turkey was after her late
war with Bnisla. She is cut off from
all comrcunicatioDSj her currency i
demoralized and disaster has paralysed
ier trade and commerce , fche is at
the mercy of Chili , which will be able
to exact and secure heavy indemnities
and greatly iocrcs-ed territory. The
/mpathy of the world , in this in
tanca , belongs io tbo conqueror
rather than to io the vanquished , for
Pora was 'tie original aggressor , and
the Chilian * did not take the field un
til every every instinct of manhood
called them forth. The latter ere a
hardier and in almost every respect
worthier people than the Peruvians s
and Bolivians , so their success I
omt'ly deserved , and very/ few ;
p riil people will regretlthe ouieom

No matter whom the democrat
nominate at Cincinnati , the outlook
for a democratic victory in Indiana i
October , is decidedly dubious. Th
St. Louis Watliche Post , a very con
servattve republican paper , suras up
the situation in Indiana , as follows :
"In the state of Indiana the demo
crats are assisting the republican
materially. They have nominated i _
roan for the office of governor whom
the repub'icans can easily defeat. I
is the notorious Frankl'n Landers

being accused of swinging the bloodj
shirf , that mon of this sort deserve nc
pardon , because their treason was
more damnable than that of th
southerners. Even his own part ;
is not satisfied with his norm
nation. Only four years agi
he belonged to the so-called "indo
pendents" i e. , he was a noisy green
backer. He received the nominatioi
for governor from the independent
and made all potsible attempts an
used the foulest means to obtain tb.
same nominat on from the. democrat ;
al-0 , in order to deliver the la'ter ' ti
( the former. Inthis he was defeated
and he * inwardly withdrew from t
independent ticket. .And now th.
man has bought the democratic nomi
notion and btands upon a platform
which he despises , to become the gov
ernor of the state of Indiana. Much
of hia record during the war as a gov
ernment contractor is simply infam
ou , which will be proven during th
campaign at the proper time. "
Indiana's Political Record.
The democrats are beginning t <
feel as though Indiana was not so sur
a bourbon state as has heretofore boon
claimed , and sure'y the facts and fig'
uroi ff rd thembut the smallest com
fort. It now looks as though Indiana' ,
favorite son , Mr. Hendrick * , would
get absolutely nothing at Cincinnati ,
and if ho don't the chancesara largely
m favor of a republican victory in the
Hoosier etato this fall. Indiana's po
litical rec-rdat this
particular time , is
most interesting reading , it being given
on in the course of a conversation be
tweon a New York Herald represent
ative and A. P. Edgerton , Mr. Hen
dricks' intimate fiiend :

formly republican since 1858 , aud it

or rather plural tj , in a presidentia
year has been but 5555 out of avotinp
population of above four hfindred
thousand. In 1868 Mr. Hendncks
was defeated for governor by a major

New York Tribune.
We grant that insrely because a republican -
publican ratification meeting was rot-
ten-epged and broken up atMontgom
ery , Ala , democratic speakers taking
the places which had been vacated by
republicans , it- does not necessarily
follow that a republican president
ought to be elected. This may have
been an accidental outbreak , fur which
the democrats party should not beheld
held retpomible. Indeed , if we may
credit the assertions of southern dem
ocrats in the reoata and housethore is
as aiule perfect freedom of politic * !
discussion and of elections throughout
tha south. If republican meetings
are broken up with rotten eggs or
shotguns , and the speakers are compelled
polled either to "divide time" with
the democrats or abandon the platform
altogether and we have all heard of
well authenticated ccsurrences of this
sort they must be reckoned excep
tions to the rule. We have the word
of eminent southern democrats that
there is no such thing as a system of
intimidation and violence among them.
And yet the exceptions are so
many , and of such frequent occur
rence ! That is the singular feature of
it. Here is this Montgomery affair ,
happening at the very outset of the
campaign , the first meetings to ratify
the Chicago nominations. It is rather
a noteworthy circumstance that an at
tempt and apparently a successful
one to break up a political meeting
and suppress free speech should be
made so early ; before the canvas has
fairly become warm or the people ex
cited. One might say there
was indicated in this a very
deliberate purpose to nip in the
bud all opposition to the democracy.
From this distance , it has the appear
ance of having been coolly and delib
erately planned in pursuance of a fixed
determination on the part of the rul
ing powers to tolerate no Opposition ,
but to quench the very beginnings of
it. But if we believe this to bo so , we
must reject the charming pictures 'of
frtedom of elections , liberty of dis
cussion. and equal rights drawn by
southern senators and representatives ;
and that we are unwilling to do. We
must believe that
these gentlemen are
sincere , and that so fjr aa the are
personally concerned they would not
throw even a fresh egg at a republican
meeting or countenance anyone else in
Lot us adjust , then , the stubborn
fact of this outrage to the conditions
of southern society portrayed by these
gentlemen , and say that as a rule the
representative men of the south , those
who are elected to office and are sup
posed to be leaders of public opinion ,
are all earnestly in favor of free
tpeech and opposed to such riotous
partisan demonstrations as that fat
Montgomery. That being done , it re
mains to account for the frequency
of 'he outbreaks. These exceptional
ruffians are unquestionably democrat ? ,
and their only object is to put down
the party opposed to these respectable
representatives. Have the eminent
leaders no influence with their follow
ers Z Could they not restrain'them from
violent electioneering methods ? Or
arethe leaders of publfc opinion in the
toulh powerless to hinder their sup
porters from mobbing the opposition ?
In short , when they ara talking so
smoothie in the senate and house
about free speech and fre'e election * at
home , do they represent anybody but
themselves ? Do their constituents en
dorse it ? It seems to us that they de
scribe things rather as they would
like them to be than as they are. "

WEST POINT , June 20. The boom
has struck West Point. You may
wonder what boom I mean , and to en
lighten your readers , I will state that
E. K. Valentine , the representative
of Nebraska in congress , has arrived
horns , and that his constituents ap
preciating bit great success in that
body , proposed to start a boom in his
favor for his renomination. L mean a
icw leiiunonbo have recoiTecl xome
favors at his hands , notably among
, the rest one Sonemhme , of pest tra-
deiship fame , who took it upon him
self to orgaiuVe a free concert in the
open air for the benefit of the afore
said congressman , but upon mature
deliberation by the aforesaid Soneu-
shine and a partner of E.K.Valentine
( in the law buainoaa ) it was consider ?
ed expedient to postpone the concert
until a more appropria'e time , there
fore the cummittea of arrangements ,
consisting of Messrs. Tate Sononshine
and Stauffer , the latter another one of
Valentine's protege ? , proposed to give
the honorable gentleman a genuine
boost in the evening none of your

A BEGCLAK NEBRASKA BUZZARD ,
something like the storm which visited
West Point last Sunday night which
carried everything before it. There
upon a programme was arranged with
a view to make this one of the things
to be talked about in the future. A
banner was strecbed from the Neligh
House across the street with the motto
"Wt.lcoraeh. > meour Val , " also one of
tha saloons , upsu the suggestion of
ihs committee , displayed a flag in
frant of its place , but by mistake I
supposed , hung it upside down until
tome one suggested that it might look
bett-r down s'de up. Oh how much
t Oiiblewe taka some times for naught ,
i'ho town was filed with farmers , but
none took the trouble to read the
motto on the banner and they mistook
the meaning of thofla ? and supposed
it was meant to draw customers to the
saloon ; but then the committee , were
men of strong hearts and had had
many such , disappointments in the
past. Therefore they took council to
gether end were more determined than
ever to make the evening part of the
programme a success. So they
HIRED THE WE8T POUJT BAUD ,
invited a number of gentleman , and
proposed to serenade the honorable
member of congress at his home , the
Neligh house. Your correspondent
hearing that the proposed serenade
was to ba public affair , thought he
would go and sea what it amounted to ,
and started for the Neligh house abort
9 o'clock in the evening. Mine ho t
Eno leceived me with gracious smileF ,
mid was prepared to accommodate me
for the night , when I informed him I
only came to pay my respects to E. K.

affair. " After waiting some time I
thought it would be as well to walk up
town and see what had becoxe of the
citizens , as they had failed to make
their appearance. Approaching a sa
loon , and hearing some excitement
within , I stepped io to see what wai
going on , when behold here was one
of the committee of arrangements
frantically imploring the bystanders to
fill in after tbe bind to do honor to
the return of E K. Valentine. "This
is cot a republican arrangement , " he
wai saving , "but an expression of our
good will. " A bystander called out ,
"GIVE us A REST ! "
another , "Set up the drinks , " and va
rious other expressions were heard ,
finally tbe interruptions ceased and
the procession was formed and the
line of march taken toward the Neligh
house. The business men and lead
ing republican politicians were con
spicuous for their absenca. 'The
ranks were composed of a few of Val-1
entines henchmen and boys from eight
to fifteen years old. After much
trouble on the part.of the committee
to keep the boys from fall ng to the
rear they finally reached the Neligh
house , when the band struck up one
of their best tunes. After playing
eoveral pieces , Mr. Tate called upon
the honorable gentleman for a speech.
The gentleman not responding Mr.
Tate went to hunt him up , and soon
Mr. Valentine appeared on ttie side
walk , and probably being disappointed
in tbe crowd , he simply
MADE A FEW EE1TARK8
and retired , whereupon the committee
invited the people in to partake of
sorno lunch Qnte a number respond
ed to the call , especially the small
boys your correspondent among the
rest stepped inside to see the end of
the performance. Within everything
was gorgeous ; tables were spread for
a multitude , wine , beer and cigars
were in abundance and the small boys
appreciated the generousness of onr
ongressman. Sonenihine of post
trade fame , made himself conspicuous
by parading the hall with the honor-
ble member from Nebraska. The
band played its beat tunes and every
one was having a good time -when
some evil spirits called for a speech ,
whereupon Mr. Tate , who had baen
waiting for this opportunity to display ,
his oratorial powers , undertook to ac
commodate the crowd , but a damper
was put on his ambition by the crowd
calling for Mr. Mclaughlin , who re
sponded in a few remarks. The call
then was for Tate and this gentleman
not wishing to be again disap
pointed , came to the front and aired
himself to his complete satisfaction.
Mr. Dworack then followed and made
the most sensible speech of the even
ing. The crowd then adjourned to a
neighboring saloon , where they may
ba yet for all your correspondent
knows , as he left for home to reek his
bed and dream of the Great Cor.grea-
sional Boom which struck West Point.

Ait year an excursion sailed clear to the Pol *
Lnd suddenly dropped in to what leemedhlcethole
There wonder ol'wonders ' they found anewland ,
While fairy-like beings appeared on each hand.
Tiere were mountains like oars , with more
beautiful green ,
ind far brighter ikies than ever were seen ,
tirds with the hues of a rainbow were found ,
While flowers of ezquiiite fragrance were grow
ing aronnd. .
Not long were they left to wondir In doubr ,
A btmjf soon came the/ bad heard much about ,
Twas Santa Clans' set ! and thi * they all say ,
He Ivoked like the picture t nee every day.
He drove up a team that looked very queer ,
Twas a team * f grasshoppers Instead of reindeer ,
Be rode In a ehell instead of a sleigh.
Bat be took them on boud and drove them
He shov ed them all over his wend rful realm ,
And factories making goods for women and men ,
Furriers were working on hats great and irrnOI ,
To Dunce's tbev said they were sendio ; them aft.
Kris Kinple , the Olove Maker , told them at onev ,
All oar Gloves we are sending to Bnnce ,
Saata showed them suspenders and many things
Saying I aide took these to fiitnd Bunce'i store.
Santa Clans then whispered a secret he'd teH ,
