' Five years ago last month the mo at
memorable aonatorial campaign in the
s history of Nebraska was formally
opened by a murderous assault upon
ino. The would-be assassin was in-
dieted , convicted and sent to the pen
itentiary. The cowardly conspirators
who planned and instigated the us-
.nault aworo themselves froo. The po
litical desperadoes that wore foiled in
( heir , effort at assassination through
the * murderous assault of Dick Ourry
have opened the campaign of 1882
with another deadly assault.
For more than two weeks those
minions of monopoly have kept up a
perfect shower of vicious and violent
abuse , of which the following extract
from the Republican is a specimen

The strike of , lim Stophonson's
workmen took place on Monday , Feb
ruary 27th. On that day I was at
Washington , in attendance at the me
morial services to Gorfiold , I left
Washington on Tuesday night , Fob-
ruaiy 28th , and was at Pittabury
on March 1st , the day when
the sewer gang was raided ,
I did not hoar about the strike until
I reached Omaha Saturday , I re-
inainod at hoiro all day Sunday ,
started for Pleasant Hill Honda ]
morning and delivered an address U
the Saline county Furmcri' Alliance
in the afternoon. I returned tc
Omaha Tuesday , and was called upoi
at my residence by the secretary o ;
the Labor Union , Tuesday evening ,
wiUi uu urgent request to attend the
workingmou'fl mass .mooting at the
Academy of Music that night. M )
apoech was published next morning ,
It reads as follows :
Mr , Chairman and laboring men ol
Omaha : After an absence of foui
weeks I rfturn to find the working'
rnen of Omaha engaged in a very im-
portaat struggle. Although 1 ia not
vtry familiar with the causes whicli
brought about this struggle , I do
know that to carry it out you are
right in co-operating. I can say now.
us herotuforo , that my sympathies
are with the workingmen of
Omaha. [ Applause. ] The working
men have as much right to associate
for mutual protection as those
who have capital. You have M much
right to withhold your labor as the
manufacturer IIM to withhold the
product of your labor , or the banker
to withhold the loan of his money ,
and you have ns much ritht ; to fix n
price upon your labor as employers
have to fix a price upon their wareu.
Now comes the question of discre
tion. Labor is gauged by the de
mand and supply , and by the cost
of living. The question what it
costs to maintain' lifo and
to live in decent quarters is essential ,
Every American workingman is en
titled to sufficient food and n comfort
able homo. The second question is
the supply and the demand. At
present the demand for labor every
where is greater than the supply.
Hence workingmen who are disposed
to work tire nowhere starving. The
only question is , for what can
the laboring men work ? You
have a right to say what you
will work for. It is a notorious
fact that the capitalists and great
monopolies always cry out "commu
nists and "socialists when A gather
ing of this kind assembles. As I said
yesterday to a mooting of ftnoprs , the
true conservators of propor4Nmd the
peace of this country are the pro-
iuccrs the men who dig out of the
soil or who shape the pruduotu of the
soil. I don't ' believe the workingmen
of Omaha are any moro desir
ous of destroying property than
, \io \ men who are . en
gaged in manufacturing , railroading ,
ind other enterprises. I take it that
3110 have just as great rights'and in
terests ns the other The only de
struction of property within eighteen
pears since I have lived in Urn aim
, vas ( by men hired by corporations
; o cut the throat of BOIIIO other corpo
ration. Wo have seen those cor
porations maflflinp men on lower Far-
lam street to destroy the property of
each other. Wo have seen the flood-
rates of the Missouri opened
ay accident that resembled de
sign and the whole river front
loaded to destroy the property of some
corporation. I take it you will not bo
guilty of any such vandalism. You
should leave this to thcmo who claim
ko preserve , conserve and gather in all
the property this country produces.
I hope there will never bo any oc-
: asion for saying that you are out
laws. I trust your present contest
may bo amicably Bottled , I hone that
you will soon bo at work _ in the
line of prosperous producers. A
iroat ? many business mon of
Omaha and outeiJo of Omaha
liavo their eyes upon you. I would
mot urge upon you anything that
would retard the growth of the city ,
rhoro is no doubt but that many con
tractors are anxious to know what the
ruling wages will bo this soaflon. It
is well that the wages ruling should
xmtinuo through the season in which
they wore adopted. When the ruling
irico of labor can bo determined , I
: iopo that the agitation , will cease.
I cannot say what the price of your
labor should bo. You yoursolvon
know the value of your own labor.
It would bo well if you could , como
to some understanding with .tho mon
who employ labor. Arbitrate , and
then go to work peaceably. Butabovo
all things , maintain yourselves as
American citizens , who do not re-
niiro the surveillance of officers. Lot
each of you appoint himself a special
wlicotnan and see that law and orde *
ire maintained.
Now , can anybody extract blood
and carnage from this speech ? It is
Mio only speech I have made to work-
ngmcn since my return and the only
gathering of workingmen I have at
ended although T have since been
repeatedly invited. The so called riot
on the dump occurred Wednesday
iftornoon , March 8 , and next morn-
ng the following editorial from my
ion appeared in TUB BKB :
The labor troubles m this city have
reached a crisis. The turbulent do-
nonstration at the J3. & M. dump
causes serious concern for the public
lafoty , oven among the most ardent
'riends of the workingmon. No mater -
, or how reasonable the demands of
vago workers may bo , they cannot
ustily a resort tn force us a moans
or obtaining concessions from cm-
No matter how earnest the desire
> f workingmen may be to enforce
.heir demands by peaceable moans ,
they are confronted by the fact that
public poaojtlaH boon violated by an
jlTort to prtMtnt others from working.
These riotous proceedings may be no
par ! of the programme of the laboring
men's union.
Their loadoas have time and again
lublicly urged strict compliance
with law , and they disclaim most em
phatically any intention to create dis
turbance Bui it is evident they can
not always control the body of labor
ing men , , and consequently lay them
selves liable to the charpo of organ
izing mobs and labor riots ,
Having failed to maintain law and
order with his imported special police
Mayor Uoyd deems it his duty to ap

tate to express a doubt as to the wis

troubles could and should bu

There may bo nothing to arbitrate on
the part of the B , & M. road ns Mr.
lloldridgo maintains , but such a
course might prevent fresh labor
troubles during the building season ,
In our opinion , an amicable under
standing with workingmen and an
adjustment of a scale o f mechanic *
and laborers' wages for the season
would be very denirnbln for all
concerned. Wo believe that an ngreo <

time under certain conditions will b

To cap the climax of infamy , the
scoundrels who have opened this cam
paign of defamation by publishing the
most outrageous lies concerning my
alleged collusion with the so-called
riota and mobs have the audacity to
claim that public sentiment in this
state is unanimous in oondomnation
of my course ,
The Republican prints- nearly two
columns of extracts , looming with per
sonal abuse and slander , which is
palmed off as the "unanimous voice"
of the state press. The whole atnto
press quoted from comprises justaoven
papers. Each of these is edited by
notorious monopoly cappers who con
sider it part of their duty to villify
and slander mo. Pirat among these
I notice the North Platte Nobraakan ,
edited by the ronugado Church.
When this shyster was n candidate
last year for -legislature the charge
was made and sustained that ho had
stolen n counterfeit $20 greenback

and when detected had to replace it
with genuine currency.
I had magnanimously refrained from
publishing his disgrace last year , but
my generosity has boon waatod upon
a villian who docs neb know

of 825.00 ; D. Myers , 838.00 ; A.
Orolo , $30.00 ; II. Pickott , $70.00 ; J.

loels. I have exercised as much for-
icaranco as any ordinary human could
) ut forbearance has coascd to bo a
virtue , and if these malignors hanker
nftor an aotivo campaign they will
hid mo prepared.
A UAJOIUTY of the judiciary com
mittee of the house has finally agreed
to report favor ibly on Valentino's bill
, o give Nebraska contingent congress
man , but there is no more show for
that bill to pass than there is for Val
entino to become his own successor.
The committee has boon grossly im
posed upon by downright perjury.
The only basts the claim for a contin
gent congressman rests upon is the
Kutonso that the census of 1870 was
ncorrcct and fell many thousands bo-
ow our real population. Affidavits
which can bo procured for a drink of
whisky among the cowboys on the
rentier have boon filed to sustain this
iretonso. These affidavits declare
hat Uio census-takers of 1870 wore
afraid to take the census in the west
ern and northwestern sections of the
state , nnd the number of people thus
omitted is estimated by state census
returns taken two years later.
3ut why didn't the people of Ne-
) raska over hoar of these errors in the
census ? They had a legislature in
session in 1871 and again in 1873 and
.875. The logislatuao of 1871 made
the apportionment for legislative nnd
udicial representation for five years.
iVhy wasn't the shortage in census
returns brought to their notice ? Why
did not they rectify the so called error
n making their apportionment ? Why
s congress asked to give representa
tion to people whom their own state
disfranchised ? Why did the legisla
ture of 1871 adopt the national census
in apportioning representatives for the
constitutional convention hold in the
same year ? Why was there no men
tion of this pretended shortage made
in the legislature of 1876 , when the
convention was called that framed our
present constitution ? Is it reasonable
to presume that those mistakes in the
census wora not discovered until after
Pat O. Hawos filed his claim for con
tingent congressman ? Will it not be
just as easy to discover shortage in
the census of 1880 in 1885 by com
paring the national census with tlm
state census taken two or throe years
later ?

Mr. Longfellow's life has beet
coeval with the most productive porioc
of American literature. Ho wa borr
in Portland , Maine , on February 27
1807 , and nt the ago of 14 ontorec
Bowdoin college , from which ho wai
graduated in 1825. Supplied by hit
father with ample moans for pursuing
the lifo of n student , in the following
year ho accepted the position of professor
fossor of modern languages nt Bow
doin nnd immediately sailed for Eu
rope , whore ho spent four years in
preparing himself for the duties of hie
position. His studies in continental
languages during this period bore rich
fruit in nftor years , in n number ol
vigorous translations from the Span-
iah and Italian , which now form one
of the most valuable portions of hie
colleotod works. Returning to Bow-
Doin , Mr. Longfellow dovrttod live
years in discharging the duties of hie
professorship , during which time he
contributed several articles to the
"North American Review" and pub
lished his "Outre Moro , " which atonco
attracted wide attention. Among a
small band of Now England liUratcitrs
ho waa already known by the fugitive
pieces which had found their way into
journals and magazines , among which
wore the "Hymn of the Moravian
Nuns , " "Woods in Winter , " and
"Sunrise on the Hills. " They were
marked by a grace of style , a polish
ot diction and a transparent lucTdity
of thought which gave their author at
once a place among the small brother
hood of American poots. In 1835
Mr. Longfellow was appointed pro
fessor of modern languages and hellos
lottrea at Harvard college , which po
sition ho-continuod to hold until 1854 ,
when ho resigned to give way to Jamoa
Russell Lowell.
The seventeen years uf his Harvard
professorship wore the most fruitful
period of his literary and poetical ac
tivity.- During this time ho wrote
and published "Hyperion , " "Voices
of the Night , " "The Spanish Stu
dent , " "Tlio Belfry of Brugea , "
"Evungelino , " "The Golden Legend , "
"Hiawatha , " "Poems on Slavery , "
and a number of araaller and loss pre
tentious .productions. Later worke
wore "The Courtship of Miles Stan-
dish1 "Talea of n Woyaido Inn , "
"Flower do Luce , " "New England
Tragedies , " "The Divine _ Tragedy , "
and "Three Books of Song.The
Hanging of the Crane" and "Moruturi
Salutation , " a poem read at the fiftieth
anniversary of his class at Bowdoin
college , wore the last extended pro
ductions from the aged poet's prolific
pen ,
Since his ret'r jrau t from the duties
of his professorship , Mr. Longfellow
continued to roMde in Cambridge
where ho occupied the old Washing
ton mansion until the time of hie
The writings of no American pjot
are BO widely known in his own coun
try and more highly esteemed abroad
than these of Longfellow. His very
popularity is used as an argument by
critics against the intrinsic worth of
his versos. But however much origi
nality in thought or novelty in ex
pression may bo denied to the author ,
none have ventured to question the
grace , the polish , the sweetness of his
metrical compositions. If ho failed
to create , ho never failed in adorning.
Though ho seldom put into metro
thoughts absolutely now , of all other
American poets ho succeeded most
admirably in putting our best thoughts
into the best language. It is as the
poet of our quieter and less restless
moods , appealing to the instincts of a
universal humanity , kindled by wide
sympathies and touched with tender
emotions that Longfellow's place in
our national literature will bo lasting
and powerful. The melody uf his
verso alone proves him to bo a genu
ine poet , nnd there nre paisagca in
the "Araonal , " the "Building of the
Ship , " and "Household Poems" which
are unsurpassed in this respect by any
in English verso. As a translator
Longfellow ranked among the first.
He has given to the English Hpcakiny
world the boat translation extant ol
Dantes "Divine Tragedy , " while few
of the continental htcitituros hi\vi
horn unnoticed in his elforts to rcppt
duue in English the uwcotcat songs ol
ether nations. Other poota will arise
of greater creative powers , possessed
of more concentration of thought and
perhaps ot loss conventionality , but
there will always bo seasons when the
poems of Longfellow will bo preferred
to these of the grand old masters ,
when nu anodyne is moro grateful
than a stimulant. For above nil

The Bogus Spirit of an Indian
Brave Oipluredat Erie.
A Modidno Man of Flesh and Bonoe
Ktle dltpttch to CleroUnd Leader.
The Foster-Fox spiritual frauda
were thoroughly exposed hero at their
first public aeanco , and the rioh har
vest which they had anticipated was
not theirs this time. Dr. Foster ap
peared before n largo audience , and ,
in n deeply injured tone , complained
of the injustice done him by the Spir
itual society of Erie , nnd the newspa
per correspondents who had telegraph
ed all over the country that ho was n
fraud without giving him a
hearing. The richly-endowed lady
at his side , Miss Fox , had
boon made to aharo the pflium of
these villainous dispatches , aho who
was oa chaste as ice and ns pure ns
BIIOW 30 pure that the nngela were
nblo to manifest themselves through
her in n moro remarkable way than in
any living medium , etc. It was infa
mous to condemn n man unhnard ;
it was unlike Americans to
do. The Cleveland Leaner and
the Spiritualist society of Erie
had denounced him an impostor , but
in their teeth ho coat bark the asser
tion the wicked , slanderous Ho ; he
would lot the audience BOO that ho
was a true spiritualist medium , nnd
that the dead can return to their
loved ones , etc. By his dignified man
ner ho won the sympathy of his
audience , and when this point
was reached ho proceeded to get his
committco of investigation. He called
out from the list the names of four
prominent citizens of unimpeachable
integrity to serve on the committee.
The nomca were not responded to , na
thopaopIoVoro not proaont * a fact
Dr. Foster waa well nwaro of. Ho
was then about to select a committees
when Rabbi Stemplo sprung up and
nominated The Loader man , who in
turn nominated Rev. Stomplo , with
Mr. John E. Boyle , editor of The
Sunday Graphic.
Dr. Foster did not look approvingly
upon such n committee , but the audience -
enco insisted upon the selection nud
the two took their seats on the stage ,
whereupon Dr. Foster informed the
audience that , owing to the sudden in
disposition of Miss Fox , several of
his best manifestations would have
to bo omitted irom the programme.
The conditions were such that the in
visibles would not bo able to ma
nipulate the elements in Miss Fox's
composition. The Leader man asked
if the trouble did not originate in the
committee , to which Dr. Foster indig
nantly replied , "No , sir. "
of charlatanism were performed that
the committee thougr.t to bo of too
small importance to trouble them
selves about , and then the grand cab
inet manifcHtntions commencod. The
spirit of a Tuscarora Indian was to
enter the cabinet in which the bound
medium and one of the committee
were to'be seated , the latter blind
folded , "for his life's sake , because no
man can see God and.livo. "
Dr. Foster andMiss , Edith Fox had
a decided objection to The Leader
man being selected for the honor of
sitting in the cabinet , bat the com
mittee appeared to think that if there
waa a risk of seeing God in that cup
board and dying , The Leader man
was boat prepared to go. In vain did
the two mediums protest that the
presence of such
would drive nway good spirits and at
tract demoniacal influences , to the
great danger of all their lives. The
committee would not lot up , and into
the cabinet the Loader man wont to
moot the disembodied spirit of Weop-
mg Willow , the Tuacarira chief. The
curtains were closed , the lights wore
turned down and the materialized
hand of the Indian descended with
rather spiteful force upon Urn reporter's
head. The hands of the spirit passed
over hia facn , causing him to wonder
if Indian angola wear signet rings
similar in shape to the ono worn by
Foster. ThoAUdienco heard ' a sharp
movement iC ho cabinet , 'and the
next momoiir ester and the reporter
appeared , the latter as the captor of
the apirit , which , of course , waa the
impostor nt hia aide. The fraud waa
then explained to the audience and
Dr. Foster
walked boldly to the front and stated
that ho had intended to expose spiri
tualism at the close of his eoanco. He
had intended to toll his hearer * that
all Spiritualists were either knaves or
cranks ; that if it were possible for &
departed wife , mother , or child to re
turn to the earth , the great God
would surely lot them communicate to
their loved ones without wanting
them to fit at pay some medium the
paUry foe of 85. Was it posoible God
wanted pay for hia fnvora ?
After Foster waa through with this
little but sensible speech , the Loader
reporter confronted him with a list of
names of people booked for private
seauces to bo given at Foster's parlors
at various hours for three days follow
ing the exhibition of that evening , nil
of whom had boon promised a com
munication from their dead ones at
from 83 to 85 n head Ho waa asked
to reconcile his speech , whur found
