THE bTATU OP TU&HE-
The prospects for fall and winter
trade au reported from the great com
mercial centers of the country con
tinue favorable. Market values are
well supported and there is n notable
absence et speculative feeling in moat
of the lincu of trade in which the arti
cles ura chiilly used for domestic con
sumption. The export trade , espec
ially in grain and provisions , con-
tinucs dull. The movement of wheat
from the primary markets ia slow and
decreasing and amounts to little over
nixty per cent of the weekly
aggregate for September. Foreign
shipments show n corresponding de
crease ) . The tendency of our farmers
is to hold their wheat until it will net
them 81 bushel at the west. This
will require nu increase of from 3 to
5 per cent in seaboard prices , which
at present shows no signs of stiffening ,
owing to the depressed foreign mar
kuts. The belief prevails , however ,
that the nhortafto in the European
potato crop will create an increased
demand for American wheat. Thia ,
with the certainty that our exportable
surplus v , ill bo much leas tlian was ex
pected throe months ago , gives reasons
for Ihu hope of etilfoniug prices ,
Tha sharp advance in corn last
wctk waa duo to the rapid exhaustion
of the old crop , The stock in eight
has decreased about twelve hundred
thousand bushels within the week and
in no * Btiikllor than for many years ,
The bulk of i.ow corn will not bo suf
ficiently hardened to como into the
market much for homo use before Jan
uary lit , and a lurther advance in old
com may bo expected in the interval ,
The general provision market re
mains strong , Stocks have been re
duced to a lower ppiut than for sev
eral years. Meats are likely to con
tinue high until the spring supplies of
cattle and hogs break down the prevailing -
vailing hich prices.
The eastern money market has re
covered from its excited condition of
two weeks ago , is in a comparatively
may condition , with a larger amount
of available loanable enpital and a
stronger market for exchange.

The Lincoln Jou.nat rushes to the

Every honest taxpayer in Nebraska
: i 3 a vital interest in the defeat of
Loran Clark , who was fraudulently
foisted upon the republican party by
the railroad henchmen as their candi
date for atato treasurer. The state
treasurer is ono of the three mom-
bora of the atato board of equnlizi-
tion. That board has the oolo power
to onsets the property of the railroads.
An long aa the railroads control the
entire board these assessments are
outrageously low. For instance , the
report of the auditor of rail
roads for the United States show that
the Union Pacific railroad , including
all its equipments , ia valued by its
officers at $110,000 per mile , which
for the main line of 452 miles in
Nebraska would make over $52,000-
000 , but the atato board has asncssod
the road at only 811,000 per mile , or
about $4,500,000 for the whole state.
The Republican Valley branch of the
Union Pacific , which ia mortgaged
at over $10,000 per mile , is
aso3sod at § 3,500 per mile.
This explains why the railroads made
such a desperate effort to control the
nomination of the whole state board.
If Loran dark ia defeated , and P. D.
Sturdevant , the [ anti-monopoly candi
date elected , there will bo at least ono
man to block the attempts of the rail
roads to escape the just share of their
burdens of taxation. Beyond and

The Evidence of HI * Gnilt Tahen
In the last issue of the Columbus
Journal , a paper published by Hon. M.
K. Turner , there appeared a charge
that a gentleman rrtldini ? in Colum
bus had in hia possession a scrap book
containing the following extract :
The war d'pattmont has ordered that

ulent practices ngainat the United States.
"Among the names appearing ,
twenty-two in number , is that of First
Lieutenant and Adjutant E. K , Val
Now , Mr. Valentino in his speech
at Fremont ou Thursday , denounced
this extract aa an infamous slander ,
and moat emphatically denied that
there was any foundation whatever
for the charge. The Omaha Ittpvb-
lican , the organ of the Union PatiHa
and the mouthpicco of Mr. Valentino
tine , has issued a defiant challenge to
any man or journal to produce the
proof , that Valentino's army record
had the slightest spot upon It. They
also published a letter from Captain
Cramer who , as Captain of company
0 , Seventh Iowa cavalry , vouches for
Valentino's fidelity and integrity
vthilo in the service.
Now , we have In our possession an
.official transcript from the records of
the War Department , which effec
tually nails Mr. Valentino as an impostor
pester who is trying to cover ft matter
of record that should forever retire
him to private lifo.
SPECIAL OHDER NO. 220.
WAR DtPARTMI'.NT ,
ADJUTAJ T GtNKRAi/H OFFICE ,
May 11 , 180G.
By direction of the president the
following named offijers are hereby
dishonorably mustered out of the ser
vice of the United States for fraudu
lent practices in connection with the
Appraisal and sale of horses , the prop
erty of the United States :
Brevet Brigadier General H. H.
Heath , Colonel Seventh Iowa Cavalry.
Major J. B. David , Seventh Iowa
Captain E , B. Murphy , Seventh
First Lieutenant E. K. VALEN-
TINlj ! , Adjutant Seventh Iowa Cav
Second Lieutenant Thos. J. Potter ,
Seventh Iowa Cavalry.
Lieutenant G. P. Bolden , Seventh
Lieutenant L S. Brewer , Seventh
Lieutenant W. II. Northrup ,
Seventh Iowa Cavalry.
Lieutenants Ormsby'and Loworey ,
Seventh Iowa Cavalry.
By order of the Secretory of War.
E. D. TOWKBEND ,
Assistant Adjutant General.
The facts in the case are that E. K.
Valentino , with others , was implicated
in frauds upon the government in the
appraisal and ailo of horuoa. The
Seventh Iowa cavalry wore doing scr-
vice on the plains against the Indians ,
and also guarding the surveyors and
construction corps of the Union Pa
cific. The adjutant of the regiment
was in collusion 'with the opocnlators
who were buying and selling army
horses. The conspiracy was discov
ered by the secret service department
of the government , and the result was
( .pedal order 220 , issued by order of
E. M. Stanton , secretary of war.
When the regiment was about to bo
mustered out three months later , five
of the officers implicated in the fraud
including Valentino , were whitewashed -
ed and the chief mustering otficer was
authorized by SpecitJ Order No. 322
to furnish them with an "honorable ( ? )
discharge. " The officer chiefly instru
mental in saving Valentino from per
petual disgrace was Major Goo. M.
O'Brien , of this city , who was later
brovottod brigadier general. Yet ac
cording to Captain 11. W. Cramer ,
dealer in railway Eupplioa ,
Valentino had as fine a mili
tary record as any man in
the regiment , and the captain , with
his wonderful memory , telb us that
Valentino was mustered out with his
regiment at FortLeavenworth , Kas. ,
in 1BCO. The war department records
show that Valentino was mustered out
at Davenport , Iowa , August 10th ,
18CG , several incnths before the regi
ment waa disbanded.
This is the truth of history , which ,
within itself , stamps Valentino as ut
terly unfit to ba the representative of
any respectable class of oltlcens , least
of til of the gallant soldiers whose
name ) ho disgraced.
