Virginia , and Cameron , of Wisconsin ,
terminate next March. General Butn-
side has been re-elected for another
tenn of six years ; General Mahone
succeeds Senator Withers ; General
Garfield has been elected to Senator
Thurman'a seat ; and a democrat has
been chosen to aucseed Senator Bruce ,
republican , of Mississippi.
Of the twenty states to elect sena
tors next -winter only eight can be
called doubtful namely , California
and Nevada , now republican , and Con
necticut , Florida , Indiana. New Jer
sey , New York and West Virginia ,
whose outgoing senators are demo
crats. The democratic majority in
the senate is now so small that a
change of six votes would give the re
publicans once more control of the en-
ate , and this makes the state elections
in Ue eight doubtful states of great
interest. The democrats hope to car
ry California and Nevada , and they
nominated Mr. English , of Indiana ,
for the vice-presidency mainly because
they do not want to lose the demo
cratic senator from that state. The
republicans mean to contest Florida ,
West Virginia , New York , Connecti
cut and New Jersey vigorously , with
a hope of securing five republican suc
cessors to the present democratic sen
ators. _ _ _ _ _ _
THE democrats , not content with
misusing the lamented Andy Johnson
while living , are now trying to rob
him of his laurels when dead. It is
an indisputable historic fact that Andy
Johnson selected Gen. Hancock to
carry out his peculiar policy in Louis
iana and Texas in 18C7.
HANCOCK'S bombastic pronnncia-
mento as military governor of Louisi-
were not only Inspired by the lament
ed author of "my policy , " but It
WM doubtless issued under Instruc
tlona from the white house. It was I
o inieqaenoo of Andy Johnson's fou <
with congress that Gen. Hancock was
chosea to supersede Gen. Sheridan a
cjmmander of the Fifth military dis
trict ; the expectation and design boin
thatthe new commander should exe
euto the acts of congress , which
the president Tiio" not bo ate
to prevent , in the spirit of "my
policy. " The evidence of this is
found not only in the rescinding o
the orders of his predecessor by thi
new commander , , but in the prcviou ;
public deliverances of such politicians
M Jeremiah S. Black and Robert I
Walker , who wera in Mr. Johnson's
confidence. "Hancock is to be made
the pioneer in a great flank move

"to restore the unrepresent

Mr. Johnson was going to "flank"

INSTEAD of undoing their bad
of last Saturday , the majority faction
in the board of education have at
tempted to appease ) p'ppular.wrath by
electing all the teachers that bad been
rejected last week , with one single ex
ception. This exception waa."Mr. . .
Scott , by all odds one of the moat
faithful and competent teachers in our
public schools. Why - Mr.Scott is
made the scape-goat by the board , we
can not divine.
Mr. Scott is an excellent teacher-
aud we know it , not by mere repoit
but by the severest practical test.
Stella RossJitater , the oldest daughter
of the editor of THE BEE , was a pupil
in Mr.-Scott's class , eighth grade , up
to the end of May. On the 7th of
Juno she entered the Rockwell Street
Grammar school , at Cleveland , in the
same grade. Notwithstanding the
fact that the text-books in that school
differ from those in Omaha , she was
examined for admission into the High
School with her class , last Thursday ,
and among over fifty competing pupils
she was one of the thirteen that passed.
The teachers of that school compli
mented Mr. Scott very highly on the
efficiency of his teaching.
Now , it is the manifest interest of
the patrons of our public schools that
Mr. SCOttDO rcUiuc'l , and on their
bshalf we protest against the outra
geous treatment he has received. It
was publicly admitted by Mr. Staley at
the lest meeting of the board that
a majority ot tlia teachers were
elected last week before the
committee on teachers had made
its report on the relative standing of
teachers. What is the use of
sush a committee if the board ignores
Its investigations ? What encourage
ment is there in Omaha under ttis
system for hard working competent
and conscientious teachers. Some
teachers were elected last Saturday
whose record does not justify their re
tention , and the only excuse for such
an imposition on our taxpayers and
patrons of the schools , is that it had
been done once or twice before.
A numbskull and dunce is elected just
as readily as the best of teachers. All
that is necessary Is to belong to a fa
vored church , or to get the good will
of members of the board by soft-soap
ing them and flattering their children.
Such a state of affairs can not .be tolerated
erated and will not be submitted to if
the people who have children to oiu-
cate can help themselves. Members
of the board who profess a
superabundance of Christianity
wreak their vengeance on an
honest , faithful teacher by
sneaking behind the ballot , They
drive him and his family out of Oma
ha to make room for some favorite or
to please some other teacher more
pious but less competent , who fe&rs
that his placa may be zome day filled
by the other.
The most important grade In our
public schools is the eighth grade ,
taught by Mr. Scott. It is more im
portant than the high school , because
the largest percentage of our boya and
girls close their public school educa
tion with that grade. It should be
entrusted to a thorougly c oampetent
teacher and when such a teacher if
found he must be retained if the people
ple have any voice in the matter. If
members of the schoolboard propose
to carry out personal spites and sub
serve personal interests they will be
asked to resign and make way for men
who will labor for the public good.
This agitation will not stop by the re
election of a dozen teachers that don't
belong to the preferred class. We
shall icsist that the most talented and
most efficient shall have preference
over incompetent , inattentive teachers ,
The public cchools of Omaha are not as
efficient to-day as they were five'yearo
ago.Thero is no excuse for this state of
facts. We ought to profit by experi
ence. Wo ought to rid the schools of
automatons and parrots and supplant
them by intelligent men and women
who are in love with the profession of
TIIE democrats have united with
the greonbackcrs in the Indianapolis
district to send the Rev. Dr. Dela-
matyr back to congress. This is in
tended as a compliment to Kansas
City , which presented Delamatyr to
Indianapolis. [ Kansas City Times.
Not much of a compliment to Kan
sas City. When that mountebank
lived in Omaha nine years ago ho was
a rampant republican , and above all ,
a monopoly henchman , who dlegraced
the pulpit by doing dirty work
for the railway and money kings.
The main objects the Indiana demo
crats have in endorsing this infamous
blatherskite , is to hold him in the
present congress , and through him to
control the vote of Indiana in case the
presidential election should be thrown
into the house. The last time he was
running at Indianapolis , we didn't
think he would bo elected and there
fore did not publish his record. Thi ;
time , however , we propose to give him
an opportunity to explain his disrepu
, hao fallen somewhat behind
our first estimate in her census footIngs - .
Ings , but after all she has no reason to
complain. A comparison with the
leading cities of Iowa and those on
the Missouri river , excepting Kansas
City , shows Omaha to be the peer of
her most prosperous rivals.

Bunning- and Underground Water.
St. Louis Kepublican.
The late Prof. Ansted , one of the
most eminent English physicists and
engineers , was engaged on a work , the
first part of which is publiaheJ , bring
ing before the world the results of his
extensive investigations on "Water
and the Water Supply. " No problem
of sanitary science overreaches this ;
and throughout the newly-settled portions
tions of the west and northwest , not
less than in the sections of the lower
Mississippi valley exposed to the rav
ages of the yellow fever , it is of par
amount importance for every commu
nity to secure thebpst drinking water.
In the first place it Is nucessary to
determine by scientific tests the quali
ties essential to the purity of drinking
water. Strange as it may seem , Prof.
Ansted has shown that foreign sub
stances in certain proportions are not
necessarily injurious ; but that the best
potable water contains both carbonates
and sulphates of lime , and "that
waters may contain any quantity up
to 50 grains of solid matter to the im
perial gallon without being unfit for
town and hoifsa use , provided they
contain common air and carbonic acid
gas in the proportion of not less than
3 per cent of the bulk , and not more
than half a grain of organic matter
in the gallon. " These con
ditions are more easily found " * * i the
spring water of districts under culti
vation , but in new countries where
vegetation is dense and the water
moving over the surface becomes im
pregnated and colored with vegeta
ble matter , it is objectionable. The
indispensable tests of potable water ,
therefore , are freedom from color ,
iasto and smell , the absence of sedi
ment when first collected , and of a
confervoid growth on its surface when
exposed for a reasonable time in a
warm place , and above all its yield
ing no unpleasant odor either when
cold or heated to the boiling point.
Every householder can test his own
water supply by these latter tests and
decide whether the liquid is fit for
family use or ia likely to endanger life
BuTTwhilp spring and well water ,
when combining all the desiderata for
potability , and beyond suspicion of being -
ing infiltrated with polluting matter ,
are unobjectionable , experience ihows
that few such sources of town supply
escape subtle and dangerous deteriora
tion. Even in the sands below the
clay strata , near London , Mr. Mylne
found "tho water drawn from new
wells occasionally charged with im
purities and unfit for domestic use. "
There is no doubt that water drawn
from wells of great depth in places
where there is access from the surface
to some permeable rock , may bs seri
ously affected by surface con
not wanting , " says Austed ,
"to prove that certain roiks , such as
chalk , are liable to suspicion of previ
ous sewage contamination. " The deep
trell atCroydoi' , England , has baen
found to yield organic matter in dan
gerous quantities. "Where there is
sewage passing over the surface , or
s-hero there is an old churchyard not
ar oflj tbo.result , " sya the writer ,
' .may be to convey into the body of
ho rock the seeds pf disease sufficient
o inject a" whole -neighborhood , .the
rateenteriog being loaded. with or-
ritb , end the docompcsitnn of the cr-
ganic matter concealed by the mineral
contents of the water. "
With these grave objections to
spring and pump water in all locali
ties near human habitations , the chief
supply should be drawn from running
water or rivers , cara being taken to
tap them at least a mile above all the
sewage or factory pollution. Accord
ing to Dr. Lethoby's expsriments ,
if the population on the banks of a
stream does not exceed 100,000 for
every seven miles and the minimum
summer flow is a million gallons per
hour , the water will ran pure and
safe from town to town. After
exposure to the orduary ac
tion of the air and light
offensive matters in river water com
bine with thejoxygen anibecome per
fectly harmless by a chemical process
resembling slow combustion. Such
organic matter is naturally burnt off
in running water and the decaying
substances wholly disappear as injuri
ous ingredient * . There can be but
little question that if thcsa facti wore
duly weighed and municipal authori
ties gave due attention to secure pure
drinking water , the great summer epi
demics , which are so fatal , would be
measurably restricted and robbed of
half their terror , if not In many places
American Beef for England.
Until-within a few years past , scarce
a pound of fresh beef or aBingle fat
bullock was exported from America to
Great Britain , as it had bean thought
up to that period these products could
not be placed there in a fit condition
fur the consumption of the fastidious
inlanders. Moreover , for some time
the value of meats of all kinds had
been so near alike on both tides of the
Atlantic as to preclude the idea of ex
portation at a profit. But prices then
began to advance rapidly in Great
Britain and the neighboring
countries of Europe , from
which she had long drawn ample sup
plies for her wants over and above her
own production- , while a depression
took placa to some extent in America.
This prompted a few of our enterpris
ing dealers in fresh beef and fat bul
locks to make the experiment ot ex
portation thither. These , at first ,
owing to the imperfect refrigeration
of the compartments on board ships
for the preservation of fresh meat ,
and lack of comfortable accomodation
for live catties together with some
other causes , more often resulted in a
loss than profit. But the pioneer :
in this business persevered with
the accustomed American pluck ,
and rapidly introducing one
improvement alter another , till the
exportation increased during the past
fiscal year , ending June 30 , 1879 , to
54.025,832 pounds of fresh boaf , val
ued at § 4,883,080 ; and 130,720 bul
locks , valued at at § 8,379,200 the
whole product being $13,262,280.
Had it not been for the British or
ders in council , prohibiting consider
able importations of live cattle , on
account of supposed disease , Ameri
can exportations would have been
much larger , and we have every rea
son to believe that they will b < 9 soon
doubled , if not trebled. The ;
most certainly will , if nothing
untoward occurs in this new business.
In fact , it promises so largely and
profitably in the future , that ships are
now fitting up expressly for the trans
portation of fresh meats and live ani
mals of all domestic kind ? , not onlj
to the United Kingdom , but also tc
France , Belgium , Holland and Den
mark , and in due time the exportatior
will probably bo extended to othci
parts of Europe.
The introduction of fresh beef frotr
America into England met at firsl
with great opposition on the part ol
many there , and especially of the
butchers , who , like the silversmiths ci
Ephesus of old , saw "their craft it
danger. " Provoking accounts of thii
have appeared in the English papers
but the following , from a correspond
ent of the London Times , being rathe :
amusing , I copy it to show the Amer
ican reader ho who was treated by hii
butcher and grocer :
"Some time sinoo largo quantities
of American beef began to be im
ported , just at a time when Englisl
baof WPS reaching almost faniini
prices. I know a family , in this towti
of good position , who , after mucl
anxious thought and weighing all thi
chances of being poisoned , etc. , tim
orously resolved one day to try tbi
American beef. Unfortunately thi
servants heard of the great experi
ment. The joint a tine one wa :
duly served ; the family ate and likec
it. ( They are still alive. ) Butwoule
you believe it , sir , not one of the fou
servants would touch it ! Let us nebo
bo too hard on tha servants. I wouli
not try is myself for more than i
year after the fiist importation * . Ev
erybody knowj that we can get a
good a joint in New York as in Lon
don , but 1 feared the voyage might in
"A few weeks ago wa had undoubt
ed evidence of our butcher sending u
American beef , charged at the price o
English. I had paid him all winte
eleven pence per pound all round ; ai
ter which I went to American stores
and got similar joints at eight penc
half-penny per pound. I had beei
charged fourteen pence per pound fo
best Wiltshire hams , when , in fact
the aame were subsequently found a
coven pence per pound at America !
In addition to the above paltry tricl
of selling good American beef at thi
exorbitant price then ruling of Eng
lish , the butchers resorted to the stil
more reprehensible one of selectinj
any which happened to be of an in
ferior quality , or slightly damaged 01
the voyage across the Atlantic , am
offering such at lower prices , and a ;
the best American. To put an end ti
these nefarious transactions , the im
porters decided on having public saloi
of their meat. This brought it direct
ly to the knowledge of the people
who upon trial finding it equal to theii

An Undisputed Title.
Fhi.'aJelphia Ledger , June 21.
Nobody will dispute the seven feet
of Pennsylvania earth that old John
Sutler claims to-day. His name is a
part of California's history his for
tune that of many another pioneer. It
was his fate to test the variableness of
supreme court decisions in the matter
of land titles versus the United States ,
and his undoubted claim , by Mexican
grant , prior occupation and actual ad
ministration of his possessions , melted
before the hot eagerness cf the squat
ter and the gold diggers. If he did
not as has been chimed himself
discover gold , he had previously
shown the pluck and hardihood of the
German-American tracer explor
ing the Pacific coast while
M yet United States sur
veys were not , and cast by the
friendly seas into the very port of Ssn
Francisco herself. Pushing into the
Interior , his fort of Now Helvetia waa
the point of destination for future em
igrant trains his
alcaldesbip , gover
norship of the frontier country , the
protection and shelter for the settlers
who were afterward to supplant him.
The white men , however , were no
more to be kept out of the Sutler
country thin out of the Ute country
to-day , and the supreme court , & 1- .
lowing the wisdom of Solomon , halved
the Satter estate , and divided trie
child of his enterprise and
hardy endurance with the late-
comingclaimants. . The story
familiar to most of our readers how
it took the entire remnant of his '
estate to make good the titles of other
lands which he had sold , and How ;
for aught that we know to the con
trary , the after gratitude of Oslifor-
nia , in its yearly pension of $3000 ,
stood between him and the burdens
which he reaped from all his wealth
of land. But the gold that he took to
California in 1838 was the kind that
neither man nor courts could rob him
of. One of the best types of the eirly
settler , brave , hardy , enterprising , he
was as chivalrous as a kr.iglit of the
middle ogeS. Whdn a thoughtless In
timation in General Sherman's book
as to a certain hillarioui celebration
of the nrst Fourth of Julf in
Now Helvetia came under
his notice he resented ir , as he told
the writer nf this , not bacauae he
cared for himself , but because it
wounded the feelings of his dear old
wife , who was reading the book alcud
to him. With his long experience of
life and government , las knowledge of
men and his intimate connection with
the young fortunes of the Golden
Stale , he should have lived and died
a California citizen , prominent in her
counsels , instead of in the semi-ob
scurity of the quiet old Lancaster
county town , from which he watched ,
afar off , the rule of the Kearney and
the Kalloch , and the bonanzas of other
men upon the soil that once waa his.

should not live to see the snow fly again ,
la this condition 1 Was persuaded by a
neighbor to try one mora medicine the
Kidney-Wort. Its effect was like a mira
cle. I soon began , to recover the use of my
limbs , my appetite and strength returned ,
and on the fifth day ( the last of Jane ) with
less than half a package of Kidney-Wort
used , I went into my hay field to work.and
continued to labor through the season. I
will add that , as a tonic , mvwife and sob !
have found the Kldner.Wjrt to be very
useful , and rtakotpreat pleasure in com
mending the medicine as invaluable.

SANTA OLADS FOUND.
Greatest Discovery of tha Age.
Wonderful discorerles In the world have been nude
Among other things where Santa Glaus stayed ,
Cluldren oft ask If he makes fools or not ,
If really ho Urea in a mountain of snow.
Last year an excursion sailed clear to the Pol *
And suddenly dropped in to whatseemedlikeLhole
Where wonder of wonders they found a now I and ,
tfhlle falry-hke beings appeared on each hand.
There were mountains like ours , with more
beautiful green ,
And far brighter skies than eror were seen ,
Birds with the hues of a rainbow were found ,
While flowers of exquhite fragrance were grow
Not long were they Mt io wOJidsr in donbf ,
A being soon came they bad heii'd much about ,
Twas Santa Clans' self and this they aJ ! say ,
He loked like the picture * tse every dljT ,
But be took them on bcnrd and drove them
He showed them all over his wond.rfnl realm.
And factories making goods for women and men.
Furriers were working on hats-great and small.
To Bnnce's ther said they were sending them all.
Kris Kinele , the Glove Maker , told them at once ,
All our Gloves we are sending to Bunce ,
Santa showed them suspenders and many thinjf
Saying 1 alse tooV. these to ffieflo ! Bunce's store.
Santa Clans then whispered a secret rtC'd tell.
As in Omaha every one knew Bunce well , .
He therefore should send his goods to his car * ,
Knowing bis friends will get their full share.
Now remember ye dwellers in Omaha town ,
All who want presents ta Bunco's go round ,
For shirts , collars , or gloves great and small ,
Send your rigter or aunt one and all.
