AK IMPORTANT DECISION.
Judge McCrary , of the circuit court
of ; ho United States , has rendered an
opinion on the right of railway com-
panes ; to cross the track of other rail
ways , that is of the utmost importance ,
not only to the city of Omaha , but to
the entire country. The attempt of
the Union Pacific railway managers to
enjoin the Burlington i Missouri from
croseihg its track on our river front ,
is very properly characterized by
Judge McCrary as an effort to prevent
close co. nectiona between the north-
and southern portions of the state.
Incidentally Judge McCrary adminis
ters a rebuke to the Union Pacific
managers for their arrog'ant attempt
to place that company above the laws
of the state in which that road
is located , and his decision not
only settles the right of way
of any railroad across trie tracks of
another within this state , but the
right of the fitate to regulate the rail
way construction and railway manage
ment by statute. The high-handed
Assumptions of the Pacific railroads
to dominion over the entire continent
and their attempts to evade juct taxation -
ation ro fully brought to light by the
citations of Judge McCrary in the
case of the Union Pacific vs. Pen-
"It was insisted in that case , * ' says
Judge McCrary , "that the Pacific
railroad was created by congress for
public and national purposes and that
likt ) a national bank it was the instru
ment of the general government and
not subject to state jurisdiction for
purposes of taxation. " v This position
was not sustained by the supreme
court which held that the state of Ne
braska had the same legal right to tax
the Pacific railroad that it had to lax
any other olais of property within its
In this caio , just decided by Judge
McCrary , the Union Pacific assumed
that while it had the right to acquire
eminent domain in any part of the
state , it could build a Chinese wall
around its orrn lands to prevent other
railways from acquiring the right to
eminent domain through their
grounds. It will be remembered that
THE BEE was the only paper in Oma
ha which denounced thin at
tempt as tit variance with
public policy and destructive
of our commercial interests. If the
Union Pacific could keep absolute con
irol of our river front for the nex ct
hundred years , Omaha would bi > e
dwarfed into a town of 30,000 to 40-
OOOiahabit&ntE whereas if our river
front is made accessible to rlva'
mlrotde we shall , within th
next twenty yean , have & city

The dreadful massacre of Genersl
Burrows' command in Afghanistan is
but the natural outcome of the Brit
ish policy. It is singularly unfortu
nate that the Gladstone ministry ,
which has so persistently opposed that
policy , should now be held responsi
ble for its results. It is eqrally un-
f ( rtunate that at the very moment in
which peace seemed assured and the
English forces having seated a. ruler of
their own creation on the Afghan
throne , were about to evacuate Af
ghanistan , rebellion should again have
broken out and reDpened the endless
controversy which for three years paat
has been draining the resources and
taxing the prosperity of the English
The Afghan war had its origin in
the fears of Lord Beaconsfi eld's ad
ministration lest Russia , pushing her
conquests east from the Caspian ,
should menace the gates of Great Brit
ain's possessions beyond the Hima
layas. The victories gained by Rus
sian arms in Turkistan , the rapid ad
vance of the armies northward
to Kuldja , the secret mis.
sions of Russian emissaries to
the homes of Afghan chiefs and the
apparent intention to ronclude a
friendly alliance with the only coun
try which lay between Russian rule
and English possessions , were eventa
chiefly responsible tor the Afghan
policy of Lord Boaconsfiold's govern
ment Counter efforts were imme
diately made to force an Anglo-Afghan
alliance in upoositiou to Russia , and
the offensive persistency of the Bea-
consfieldgovernmentmet by obstinacy
on the part of the Afghans , who de
clined any interference into their
affairs of state , was principally
responsible for the war which ensued.
The bloody detail ? of. that war are
fresh in the recollection of all. The
sacrifice of life necessary to force en
trance through the rocky passes which
separated India from Afghanistan was
enormous. The natives fought like
tigers in defense of their country , and
the advance towards Cabul was con
tested inch by inch. Tha massacre of
Major Cavagnari and his brave com
mand within the walls of Cabul fol
lowed , and the city waa only recap
tured by Gan. Roberts after heavy
The subjugation of Aghanistan was
now considered complete although the
natives were divided into two classes
one oT which positively refusing to
acknowledge English rile , took vo the
hills and maintained a guerrilla war
fare against the English forces.
Yakoob Khan , the ameer , was de
clared by the English government to
have forfeited his throne , and a
great gathering or durbar of the
chiefs waa called last week to
hold a conference with the English
and acknowledge the supremacy of
Abdur Rahman , an ally of the British
as their ruler. Several of the tribes
refused to attend , and it was noticed
that a number of the chiefs present
maintained a sullen reserve through
out the ceremony. The result WAS
shown on the 14th instant , when a
number of the troops of Shere Ali ,
one of the English allies , mntiued ,
and ominoua reports of the
gathering of hostile mountain
tribes in the vicinity of Cindahar
come to the eara of General Uurrows.
His column was immediately set in
motion to go to Shere Ale's assistance ,
but on the night of the 23rd it was at
tacked by an overpowering force of
natives and almost anlhilated.
The news has created the most tre
mendous excitement in Great Britain ,
when the blunders of the Afghan war
have been since their commencement
matters of daily comment. It is
not just , however , that the
odium of this terrible defeat
to British arms should fall on Mr.
Gladstone's ministry. They found
themselves upon their entry to office
burdened with a foreign policy in
whose inception they had no part , and
whose results they have since endeav
ored to shape to the best of their
ability. It is to Beaoonsfield , with
hia love of glare and glory , his desire
for imperial splendor and territorial
aggrandizement , his disregard of in <
ternational justice and comity , that
the blame of the terrible blow must and
will fall. England has paid dearly for
interference in Eastern politics and
her jealousy of Russian invasion , and
from present indications the end is
almost as distant as when the gates of
Afghanistan were fo ced and the vic
torious troops seated themselves in
triumph in the citadel of Cabul.
TURKEY has finished her note to the
powers and it is understood to be
short and stinging. Dispatches from
Paris announce that an European war
seems imminent and that the prevail 1.
ing impression is that Russia will
form an alliance with France and
England with Austria and Germany.
Should such a war result the partition
of Turkey among the great power *
would be the bone of contention
which would be bitterly fought over.

"To those who have imagined that
from the immense rush of settlers into
the western states and territories all
the vacant lauds in the continent were
in a fair way to be taken up at once ,
the following facts may be a source of
comfort. " [ Omaha Herald.
The article of which the above ia an
extract continues and enumerates the
percentage of unsurveyod lands in the
states : For California , 41.4 ; Minus-
seta , 2G.7OreconG5.3Novada ; ; , 83.9 :
Nebraska , 17-9 , and Colorado , 6G.8.
And of the territories : For Wash
ington , G ! > .3 ; Dakota , 77.9 ; Utah,83.4 ;
Wyoming , 87 , Idaho , 875 ; Montana ,
88.5 ; New Mexico , 89.2Arizona ; , 92.7 ,
and the Indian Territory , 38.G
The object of this communication
is not to controvert , but to explain
the statements of The Herald ; for
surely the writer of that article could
net have intended his figures as the
percentage of unsurveyed lands at all
adapted to settlement and cultivation !
although he suggests that the "facts
may be a source of comfort. "
In each and every state and terri
tory mentioned there are Indian res
ervations , of great extent in the ag
gregate , which are not , and until the
extinction of the red man , never will
be open to settlement by th& whites.
But travelers and men of observa
tion will smile at the unintended in
ference of which that article is sus
ceptible , when they reflect that every
acre of the lauds in the states and ter
ritories mentioned , at all suitable for
agriculture or homes have been sur
veyed and offered In the market. Col
orado is mentioned as having 66.8 per
cent , of its whole are unsurveyed.
Beside the fact that every inch of
Colorado is comprised within the
Great American desert , and is sub
stantially a sterile desert , aa a matter
of history , I will say that-I have just
returned from an extensive tour
throunh that state , and that there is
not a green spear of grass , from its
center to its circumference , except
what has been produced by artificial
irrigation , and which treatment has
this year been substantially a failure.
New Mexico is equally , and Arizona
even more desulate. It is true that
in exceptional seasons , too few and
far between to save the husbandman ,
grass has grown in Colorado But it
is alee true that to-day hundreds ,
( said to be eigbt hundred ) dead cattle
which have starved to death this
summer , lie about one abandoned
ranch in South Park , the boasted
elisium of Colorado. But in most of
districts named as in Colorado west of
Denver nineteen-twenthietha of the
of the country , ia a vast sea of moun
tain peaks , cliffts , rocks and indis
cribabledessolationutterly sterile and
worthless for any thing save raining ,
and from personal observation I verily
believe that not more than one out
of each ten thousands of those who
seek mineral treasures iu Colorado
and contiguous mining districts ever
get back one dollar of their invest
ments. This is a poor show for homes
in any of the mining districts. After
coining some twenty or thirty miles
eastward of Cheyenne , on the Union
Pacific railroad , I wa ? pleased to find
eastwardly along the line of that road
a fine growth of grass , increasing in
qnantity thitherward , pastured by
hundreds of thousands of thrifty cat-
tie. The same cannot be aaid of the
latitude of Denver , Jolorado Springs
or Pueblo. The Union Pacific rail
road and the Burlington and Missouri
lines traverse a section of country
whflre the sail is excellent and rain
and moisture is more abundant west
ot North Platte than it is more south
in the same long.-o.de , and therefore
cannot be said to be in the so-called
"rainless district. "
But I assert without the fear of
contradiction , that the only desirable
untaken lands in the west to any con
siderable extent , suited to agriculture ,
having a deep rich prairie soil , good
climate and sufficient rain and moist
ure , are in the beautiful state of Ne
braska east of North Platte , and are
chiefly owned by the Union Pacific
railroad company and the Burlington
and Missouri railroad company in Ne
braska , and the intervening sections
chiefly taken up by individuals or pri
vate companies , who hold them at
about the same price asked by the
railroad companies. These lands are
the finest in the world and will proba'
bly all be purchased for homes within
from three to five years , and in in
creased value will double the purchase
price the first three years.
People who want western homes
are alarmed , and justly so. In a few
more years all the lands in the United
States worth cultivation will be taken
and instead of the luxury the afflu
ence of a rich Nebraska farmer , too
many will be obliged to seek a scanty
subsistence in the great workshops
where capital enslaves labor and the
independence and pride of citizenship
is lost in the degredation of unre
warded enterprise. OBSERVER.

If Garfield carries New York he
will be elected , but the loss of New
York does not necessarily defeat him.
If he-loses New York and carries

will lack but four votes of election ,
which Connecticut or New Jersey
would supply. The probabilities are ,
however , that if he loses New York
he will also lose Connecticut and New
Jeney. Usually the three stitea go
together , although there have been
exceptions enough to leave a hope bs
to both the smaller states. All the
possibilities are embraced in this
That if Garfield carries California ,
Indiana , Nevada , and either Connect !
cut , New Jersey or New York he wil
bo elected , and-if he carries New
York alone he will be elected.
The democrats , are very confident
of carrying California on the Chinese
question , but as Blaine is to stump
the state , their confidence may bt
misplaced. Connecticut and Now
Jersey are likely to go with New
York. Indiana , though doubtful
will probably go tc the republicans ,

of the possibilities are given :

This would give him four less than
a majority , which Connecticut (6) ( ) or
New Jeraey (9) ( ) would supply. It is
not altogether removed from the pos
sible that the republicans msy carry

generally conceded to the democrats.
The work of the campaign , there
fore , will be mainly in California , Con

Connecticut and New Jersey. And
it is in these states that the democrats
will spend their money. The efforts

Hoadley and Cronin.
Cle eland Leader.
In his reckless speech , delivered on
he park Thursday evening , Judge
loadley said : "General fiarfiold islet
lot a good lawyer , " and then proceed
ed to repeat the slanderous and ex-
iloded stories in reference to the De
Solyer case. For Judge Hoadley to
say that "General Garfield is not a
good lawyer , " shows either a want of
delicacy and good taste on his part , or
ilse he is influenced by a feeling
of resentment ho may have against the
general. If the latter , it was caused
by the fact that in 1877 , when the
_ roit case of the foreclosure of the
Mortgage and sale of the Mobile &
Dhio railroad was argued before the
United States district court at Mobile ,
General Garfield was the leading
counsel on one tide , and on the other
side was Judge Hoauley , who was
Beaten on every legal point by Gene
ral Garfield , who won the case.
Judge Headley may , however , boast
of one achievement which crowns his
fame as a great lawyer and entitles
lim to be able to judxethe merits of
all of his brethren at the bar. He
was one of Tilden's lawyers to pre
sent the claim of that jjreal cipher
chief before the electoral commission.
He had assigned to him the Oregon
case. He spoke more houra than any
of his associates , and devoted his legal
abilities to the de'ence of the Cronin
Fraud , and it resulted in hia triumph
antly obtaining a unanimous vote of
the commission in fact , he was the
only lawyer who obtained a unaiii-
mous vote of that tribunal. Instead
of the usual vote of 8 to 7 , the com-
mission decided unanimously against
Cronin and Hoadley's six houra'
speech defending that extraordinary
specimen of an Oregon fraud. After
making such an exhibition of his legal
ability before the commission , it comes
with remarkably poor grace for Judge
Hoadley to decry the merits of Gen.
8.irfield as a lawyer , especially when
he w s so signally defeated by him at
Mobile. Our advice to Judge Head
ley is to be more modest and not ex
pose himself to the charge of being
vindictive in his personal feelings to
wards Gen. Garfield for reasons that
are now obvious.

has been the case , I have never failed to
chech it by the use of this medicine ! I
have a son eleven years old who had for
years uniformly wet his bed nights , and
all the prescriptions of different physicians
were ineffectual in checking it. I was as
sured by a physician that "Kidnew-Wort"
was just tae medicine to cure him , and
sure enough a trial was completely suc
cessful. I regard the medicine invaluable
for Pile * and Kidney diseases.

Qreateat Discovery of the Age.
Wonuc.-ful dhscovcriesin thi world havobeon made
Among other things nhcre Santa Claua stayed ,
Children oft oak If he makes gooda or not ,
If really he Urea in a mountain of snow.
Last year an excursion sailed clear to the Pole
And suddenly droppedinto whatgcemedlike&hola
Where w ender ot wonders they found a new land ,
iVhile fairy-like beinua appeared on each hand.
Tlicro were mountains like ours , with morj
beautiful ( .Teen ,
And far brigh'er akios than ever were utoii ,
Birds with the hues ) of a rainbow were found ,
While flowcru of exquisite fragrance were grow
Not ! on < were they left to wonder In doub.
A beiti ? soon came they had heart ! much ahout ,
Tnas Santa CUus' self and thit they all nay ,
3elt okcd like the picture * eaeeevery diy
lie drove up a team that looked tery queer ,
'T\vaH a team f grasshoppers instead ot reindeer ,
lie rode tu a shell instead of a nloUli ,
But ho took them on toird and drove them
Ho showed them all u\er hig wonderful realm ,
And factories making goods for women nd men.
Furriers were working on hats great and small ,
To Bunce'd tliev said they were sending them all.
'v'ris Kinsrle , the Ole > e Makertold them at once ,
All our Glovesweare sending to Dunce ,
Sa ta allowed them suspenders and many tlilnirs
Saving I alae took these to fiiund Bunco's store.
Santa Claug tiicn whispered a secret he'd tell ,
As in On aha etcr } one knew Bunco well.
He therefore should send Ills goods to hia care ,
Knowing his frie d uill get their full share.
Now remember ye dwellers In Omaha town ,
All who want presents to "mice's go round ,
For Bhirta , collars , or glovea great and small ,
