IT is unfortunate that great epi
demica make most progress among the
poorer classes. Omaha has a number
of flinty hearted old fossils opposed to
every public improvement which
doesn't put money in their pockets
and who have never yet boon hit uven
by chicken pox.
Mu. VALKJ.TINB'H clerk , who in that
capacity is relieving the Omaha Hu-
publican from the necessity of paying
him a nalury as its Washington cor
respondent , has written from the cap
ital his employers explanation of the
attempted "back pay steal. " Ac
cording to Nye , Val and Majors never
had any idea of blooding the national
treasury for contingent expenses and
if it hadn't ' been a case of Pinafore
the provoking impression wouldnn\or
have gone abroad that Tom Majors
wanted pay for past sorvicoa which ho
never rendered in Congress.
"In regard to the matter. " saya
Nye , "It may bo oaid that it was
never the intention of either Valentino
tine or Majors that the latter should
receive pay for more than the sension
in which ho will bo a member if the
bill for admission is passed. In in
troducing the bill , Valentino took a
copy of the one which ho had intro
duced at the last session and marked
in it the necessary correction. In the
hurry of his work he did not notice
that there wore two bills in his hand
instead of one , nor was it understood
by him that he had delivered to the
clerk the wrong and uncorrected bill
until Bomo time afterward.
This is a very thin explanation of a
very shrewd attempt to pick the lock
of the treasury. Val "mixed those
babies up" and thought that "not u
.mortal Know it. " When ho found
that his constituents road the press
reports from Washington , and that
BOUIO of the Nebraska papers com
mented upon what they road , ho
hastened to denounce the lumurtion
that liis bill was u "hack pay grab" as
"aiiiuifamous slander and an outrage
ous Ho. " After this lie may have
changed and corrected IIIH bill , but of
this the record makes no mention.
Tlio only authority that this him been
done is the unsupported assertion of
his committee clerk , who was formerly
one of the .editors of The Omaha Re
publican , JLacl now after The Re
publican lias iicen
denouncing as a
Blander TUB Bus's charge against Val-
entine' * little "back pay grab" its cor

The 0. It. Nonpareil docs not see
its way clear to joining Omaha in
building a wagon bridge aero is the
Missouri. That wai what the Herald
was not able to sco several dajs
ago , when it showed that the whole
thing was imiaclicablo ] on any plan
that itoiiltl bo possible to invent.
Men do not build wngon bridges un
less they will pay a fair return on the
money invested in building them
The Missouri h a navigable river. A
wagon bridge high enough to allow
bo.itn to run under it , whether it liu
a suspension bridge , or i bridge built
on piots , would bankiupt any local
company that should undertake to
it , and n low bridge with a draw-
would bo impossible without .in ex
penditure that would insure the tunic ;
result Without any pretensions to
fltmcial knowledge on the subject , wo
filumld say that a wagon bridge across
the river that is not connected with
a railroad bndgo will bo constructed ,
if constructed at all , mainly of a very
thin article of moonshine. - Omaha
The editor of the Herald is a vie
tim of the moonshine which filters
through the Union Pacific hc.idqii.ir
ters and his silent pirtnerihip in the
Union Pacific transfrr. This h the
reason why Dr. Miller is not able to
see how a wagon bridge can he con
st rnctod between Omaha and Council
Bluffs. It is a matter of fact that the
original charter for a bridge across
the Mmouri , contemplated a bndgo
for wagons with a draw and this plan
was originally recommended by Gen.
0. M. Dodge. The private intoruats
of the railroad managers in the Dil-
lonvillo transfer grounds alone pre
vented ita construction and Omaha
and Council Itluffs ha\o been the suf
ferers in consequence to the tune of
hundreds of thousands of dollars a
The people of the two cities have
been patient long enough under the
extortions of the giant monopoly and
have doteimined to take measures to
obtain relief from the embargo on
trade and intercourse which the
Union Pacific has placed upon them.
They are agitating n wngon biidge be
cause they are convinced it will pay
and pay handsomely , not only in dollars
lars and cents bul in assisting the
growth and development both of
Council ] ) lufl4 and Omaha. The as
sertion that a low bridge over the
Missouri is ilnpr.icticiblo ia the idicor-
est moonshine The river ia already
bridged in three places on this plan
with most satisfactory results. So
far an the expenditure of mo ley noc-
easary to build a substantial wagon
bridge ia concerned wo believe that
the amount will bo readily forthcom
ing. The trafliu between Omaha and
Council UlufTa would at once return
handsome dividends on such an in
vestment. A number of our mer-
ehanta whoso annual tolls to the
Union Pacific run up into the thou
sands of dollars could take stock in
such an enterprise with the assurance
of making money from their interest.
Local trallic between the two towns ,
aside from that of our merchants ,
would bo greatly .stimulated to the
benefit of both citiea and the profit of
the bridge company.
No amount of arguments , however ,
will convince the brasa collared edi
tors on both sides of the river , who
draw their pay from Jay Goultt'a
leadquarteis , and whoso private in-
tcreuta in addition would be affected
: > y any decrease in the amount of
Freight handled at the transfer. A
wagon bridge aciosa the Missouri at
Ins point would badly cut into the
extortionate freight tarifla charged by
; lie Union Pacific bridge monopoly
and it < a only natural that the dogs
should bark when their master is at-
aeked. Since the HUH llowur editor
of The Herald scorns to be so inter
ested in "moonshine , " we will inform
lim of an article of the kind which
vill not go down with the people of
Dmalia and Council BIuHs , and that
s the "moonshine" which attemptu to
cast a reflection of disinterestedness
ever a policy whoso only object ia to
ncrease the weight of the pocket
uiok of the editor who advocatea it.
Mil. Conn , of Indiana , is doter-
ninod to probe to the bottom the
nuttor of forfeited railroad lan'd
; rantfl , and has introduced a bill into
congrotis making it the duty of the
secretary of the interior to declare
orfeitod the grants of all roads which
lave not compiled with the terms of
the contract upon which their lamia
wore granted. This measure is
grounded on law and equity. If the
railroads have failed to carry out the
conditions under which they wore
endowed with princely aub hlioa they
mvo plainly forfeited their rights to
hose grants , There is not the leant
doubt that the Union and Central
L'auific railroads ought to come under
lie provisions of Mr , Cobbs1 measure.
The charter of these companies con
tained a proviso that all thu granted
anda remaining unsold by the cor-
mrutioim ufter the completion of the
roadu should ro\ert to the United
states and become n part of the public
domain , subject to pre-emption at
2.50 an ucro. This clause in the
charter was inserted to enforce the
disposal and cultivation of the lands
as soon as poiaiblo , wid in order that
: ho corporations might not be en
couraged in the monopoly of the
land of this country for epeculutivo
purposes. In the absence of this pro
viuiou tnu charter would never
lave been granted. After do.
aying the acceptance of the
roads for four years beyond
their completiontho , Union Pacific and
Central Pacific immediately began to
doviao a scheme for retaining the lands
which according to the law would in
three yearn revert to the United
State/i. / With this object irt view the
Central Pacific railway directors or-
gamruil n land btirciu composed of
themselves and aold to it in bulk all
that remained of their land grant.
The Burlington i Missouri in Ne
braska followed the simo course. The
Ciiioti Pacific which trusted more in
the power of money and political in-
llnonco determined to content on the
ground tint thojmortg.iges on their
lands were sulficient disposal of the
grant to comply with the terms of the
law. With a bogus prosecutor and
harmonious ntlornojo a test case was
cirried up to the supreme court of the
United States and decided in favor of
the company and there has since been
no reversal of that decision because
there has since been no further at
tempts to contest tno company's title to
the land. If Mr. Cobba inquiry serves
f o reopen the question there is a chnnco
that the nation at large may be placed
in a position to understand how it has
been swindled byaset of unprincipled
and extortionate sharpen , and an
equal chance that millions of acrua of
fertile lands now held for speculative
purposes will be thrown upon the
open market for the common benefit.
If the issue were once presented
fairly before the .supremo court ,
whether a transfer made to avoid the
fulfilment of a contract was not in it
self a fraudulent sale wo have little
doubt of the result. Such a decision
would affect grants covering an area
greater than that of the states of
Ohio , Illinois and Iowa.
THE FUNDING BILL.
Senator Slieiman professes himself
as satisfied that the funding bill which
passed the senate last week will se
cure the approval of the house and
become a law. Tlio bill as finally
passed diflurtt considerably from the
ono introduced by Mr. Sherman but
embodies its moat essential pointa.
That it passed at all may be consider
ed a decided viutoiy for its author. It
has been assailed from lirat to last
with the most inconsistent arguments
and threatened at every atagp. , vrith
highly obnoxious amendments. In
meeting the one and opposing the
other Mr. Sherman has been coin-
pulled to fight almost single handed ,
aided only in the liter stngeti of the
deb ilo by Messrs. Hawley and Ed
Five principal amendments were
made to the funding bill as originally
introduced. The first made by the
finance commitlc-o leduced the amount
of the bonds fuun three to two hun
dred niill'ona. The second amend
ment struck out the clause making the
bonda payable after five years and
substitutes payment at the pleasure of
the government , while the third
amendment practically lestores the
time clause by providing that the now
bonda shall not bo called till all the
outstanding bonds redeemable at the
pleasure of the government and bear
ing a higher rate of interest than three
per cent are redeemed. An there are
? : ijO,000,000 : of the three and a half
per cents this provision makes it cer
tain that none of the now bonds will
be paid till those are out of the way ,
which will be certainly three years
hence and probably for six or more.
Some permanence ia thus given to the
bonds as an investment which will
assist greatly in placing them on the
The only other amendment of im
portance aside from the proviso de
claring Mr. Windom's extended three
and a half per cents valid , is the ono
propound by Senator IJawloy. This
compels all national banks wishing to
letiro their circulation by a deposit of
an equal amount of lawful money in
the United States treasury to give
thirty dnyn notice and tu limit such
withdrawal to $ 5,000,000 in a single
month. This will prevent national
banks from speculating in tlieir bonda
and will stand in the way of caprici
ous and sudden contractions of the
bank note currency.
The consideration of the bill in the
house will doubtless nilortl now mem-
bora chance \ to ventilate their views
on the currency. It ia to be hoped
that having done this they will bo sat
isfied to lot the bill remain in its pres
WAHHIMITON senatorial gossips are
anticipating a sensational scene on the
night of the 27th of February , when
Mr. Itlaino will deliver his eulogy on
President Garfiold. One of Mr.
Hliiino's friends , referring to the com
ing occasion , says ;
" .lust see what u spectacle it will
be. There ia Arthur and his suite ,
lllaino and his following , the demo
crats anxious to see how the republi
can quarrel will turn , thu politicians
of all sorts on the alert , and practi
cally an audience of fifty million
people following every word. There
will be , I take it , a good deal more of
lilaine in that meeting than of Gar-
field. Exactly w hat the orator of the
occasion w ill a y cannot bo prophesied ,
but his words will bo chosen. His
position ia ono of extreme delicacy ,
and the effects of his speech vill extend -
tend as far into thu future us the year
1884. Mr. Dlainu will probably not
confine himself to a 'fulsome
eulogy of the amUblo jmyuto lifo of
the dead preaidontr Hewill 'describe ,
as he has a right to describe the pub
lic lifo of his friend during those
last months of his life when ho was
shaping that policy by which ho wish
ed to commend himself to the Amen
can people. It is notorious that in
those designs and aspirations no one
was closer to the president than the
secretary of state , nor is any one bet
ter qualified to declare to the Ameri
can pcoplo what would have been the
policy of their lamented president.
To describe the past and punt the fu
ture of the Garfield administration is
ono branch of bin subject which the
orator of the occasion can scirccly
avoid , and in tlio circumstances and
surroundings of that night such an
address wilT of necessity bo more than
a mere tribute of iill'ection to the
TIIK blows aimed at the conference
of American nationalities proponed in
the circular of Mr. Illaine do not hit
the ox-secretary at all. The idea
originated with Gcncr.il Garfield and
wax carried out in accordance- with his
intentions by Mr. Blame under thu
executive sanction of President Ar
thur. The Btidden reversal of Mr.
Truqcott'fi instructions will do more
damage to the prestige of the United
States abroad than the failure of the
convention itself if it had assembled ,
as was at firat contemplated.

It ia very much to l > o regretted that
the questions of foreign policy re
cently brought to the foreground by
Mr. Blame's diplomatic ventures
should at once have become subjects
of personal controversy connected
with the "opening of tlio next presi
dential campaign , " instead of being
considered upon their merits.

If the American people can peace
fully contemplate the payment of

knowledge of the fact that not more
than six hundred millions will go to
those who really deserve the money ,
wo are very much mistaken.

'hcrownsa peculiar scene in the
district court to-day , during the prog-
of the trial of Win. .1. Clark for the
murder of M. Hnzolton , an att.irho
of Forcpaiiyh's circus , lust July. The
sttito nnd defense had concluded testi
mony , nnd the case was about to bo
argued , when Judge Hvpg , presidiiif ; ,
toro up BOV on caaes of instructions ho
had prc'pirud for the jury , throw thoni
on thu lloor and declared that the case
should not bo argued to the jury. , that
the state had tailed to nuke out a
case , and ho could not allow the jury
to bring in a Verdict of guilty If
thuy did ho shonld fool it his duty to
set it aside. If the jtny agreed
with him that the state had
failed to make out a case ,
they could render u vurdict of
not guilty without leaving their seats ,
which they did. The judge said that
the defendant was acting as a police
ollicer when the shooting was done ,
and being urn-rounded by a threaten
ing mid assailing crowd , had a light
to defend himself , no matter what ro
suited. The weakness of the state's
Bide of thu case waa duo to the ab-
aenei1 of circus nttnclus , who vve-re ex
pected to appear agauibt the defend
ant. .ludgo lingg's ruling that the
case should not bo argued , and his ac
tion in requesting the jury to bring in
a verdict of not guilty , has no parallel
in this c urt , and is u matter of gen
eral comment heie to-diy ; but .Fudge
Dasjg has a high leputation for judi
cial wisdom and prudence , and quite
likely knew what ho was about.
Clark ia now a free man , and Hale-
ton sleeps in the Potter's field.
