Numerous bills are now pending i
congress authorizing the conatnictio
of railroad and wagon bridges acroi
the great western rivers. Many <
these projected bridges may never r
built while others will doubtlcts I
erected to accomodato the growing di
mands of commerce , It ia manifest )
the duty of congress to enact son ;
general law prescribing thocondilior
under which bridges shall bo bui
across the navigable rivers of th
west. Such an act would do nwa
with all special legislation and aiTor
to all localities nnd all parties cqur
privileges and facilities for traffic
At the same time it is also th
duty of congrcts to prevent th
obstruction of the ravigablo river
by bridges that do not afford propo
facilities for ' .ho passngo of boats ,
With n view of aiding congress i
practical legislation on thu impor
tant subject the St. Louia merchant
exchange have had a bill prepared b ;
a committee of experienced river en
gincora , whioh waa recommended t
congress at a meeting hold by th
merchants of St. Louis las
w jck. This proposed bill a
drafted is entitled "an act t <

Mississippi , and across the Illinoii
river between ita mouth and Peoria
in the state of Illinois , and to pro
scribe the character , location and di
monsiona of the same.
The proposed bill is very length ;
and wo can only point to the principa
features that apply to the bridging ol
the section of country in whioh we

icribcs in detail the conditions under
vhicli all bridges crossing the great

The trial of Crow Dog for the mui
dor of Spotted Tail is now in proprci
at Deadwood , and much interest i
naturally manifested in the rcsull
Knotted Tail , chief of thoBtulo Siotn
was murdered at Rosebud Agency o
the 5th of August , 1881 , and the goi ;
oral belief among people on the rosoi
vntlon is that ho was the victim of
murderous conspiracy.
A largo number of Indians hav
boon cited to Deadwood as witnesac
to establish the claim of the dofonc
that Crow Dot ; acted on the first la\
of nature , eelf-prosorvatlon. Th
prosecution on the other hand is road ,
to provo that the shooting of Spottci
Tail waa a cold-blooded murder as
part of a conpiricy led by Crow DOJ
to make Black Crow chief of th
Hrulo Sioux. There was also th
hint of a scandal in connection wit ]
the crime , the exact nature of whicl
ras never disclosed. The assassins
tion was cowardly , Crow Dog gottin ]
the drop on his chief and firing with
out warning. The shot was a dondl ;
ono , and Spotted Tail did no live Ion )
enough to shod any light on the mys
tery. The assassination caused grea
excitement at the time , and but fo
the prompt arrest of Crow Dog as thi
murderer and Black Crow as an accessory
cossory before < ho fact the conspiracy
which had led to the murder migh
have led to the inauguration of a reigi
of terror nniong the Brulcs am
trouble at the ngcncy.
By thia dociaivo action the tendency
of the Indians to centralize power ir
the person of a chief who was bittorlj
opposed to the policy of the govern
ment to civilize the Sioux , was frus
trated. Thu crisis at the ngcncv
passed with the prompt arrest and im
prisonment of the murderous con-
Spotted Tail was hated by the do
ligning men of the tribe for Iris
'riondly relations with the whites ,
ind his death was deeply deplored at
ho agency and throughout that ace
ion , which , together with the
latural prejudice against the cowardly

noasuro for the. interest manifested in
ho trial of iiia murdorrr.
WIIEM Omaha was dependent nn-
irely for fire protection on the water
lupply from oystcrns and wells , there
was some excuse for exact ing high in-
mranca rates. But now that we
mvo an ample and constant supply
rom our water worta , insurance rut a
n Omaha should not bo highr * than
hey are in. any other western city ,
n fact , they should not bo as high
.a they are in most citict , because
ur streets are very wide and the ris
rom destructive fires comparative !
mall. Wo remember very distinct !
hat our local insurance agents prom
icd a great reduction in fire rate

IcreUnd Lttdor ,
During the famous railroad strike
f 1877 the federal government was
Mod upon to send troops to Poim
plvania and West Virginia. The
imo thing has just boon done in No
raska upon the requisition of Govor
or Nance. It is befitting that law
ud order should bo ac all times main
lined , and in all parts of the county ,
ut the growing practice of calling foi
idural troops to repress local disturb-
ucoB , or overawe a fuw people dis-
OBod to bo riotous , in exceedingly
uostionublo. The stutes have their
vm militia and possess the necessary
louna of defending themselves except
i case of an overwhelming rebellion.
Vo can readily conceive that cisca
tn arise , like that of the Dorr
'bullion in Rhode Island , when the
; doral government may property in-
ufuro to save the legitimate author- !
os from overthrow , but the use of
idoral troops in u state when the
teal authorities are competent to
Dal with the cause of trouble can
tarcely bo justified. It was an ao-
aowledgment of weakness on the
trt of Pennsylvania and West Vir
inia , aa it is now on the part of
'vbraaka , to call for federal troopa ,
obraska has a militia force of her
irn auffioiently strong to dial with
te Omaha strikers , and thu governor
lould have relied uwn this f < rca to
reserve the peace. During th
ining troubles in this state , Gover-
> r Foster nev r thought of callingfor
dorml aid. He relied upon civil
ithoriticB and the state militia to
presa all aggressiveness , and theme
mo course should ba punued by
her Btatos. This matter of appeal-
g to the federal government for
oops whenever a littfa local disturb-
ice occurs ought to bo cheeked. If ,
waver , it is loft to grow into a
kbit , it will become necessary by and
to enlarge the regular army to thu
tent of a hundred thousand or
are , Let the states bo made to de >
nd on their own militia , and lot the
fulur army be confined to its leghi-
itu duties. This course of prosed-
o is in keeping with the spirit of
our institutions , and will bo general !
approved by the people.
