THE LAND QUANT OASES-
The Bnprcmo court has at last given
'its' opinion on the Knovnls nnd Hur
liogton and Mltaonrl land grant canes
The dcolsiop , us was expected , ia
ftgalnat the right of the settlers claim
ing title to the land. Both cae
which have often bocn discussed in
thcso columns , have beendecided , on
the same gn.und.
This ground , briefly stated , is that
title to land grants passes to the
grantee with the filing of the rrmp of
the lands in the land commissioners
offloa at Washington , nnd
not with its record on the books of
the local land offlco adjacent to the
land co donated. In the Kncvub
cases , thousands of ncrco wcro pre
empted in good faith by nctnal sot
tiers , who consulted the land ofiho
rasps and fcnnd no evidence of litio
roiling with the railroad companies
[ n many instances their titles ttero
ictfcctod and patents issued to them
liy the government. The oupremo
court now decides that the titlu had
passed out of the hands of the gov
ernment into that of Iho corporation
and that the patents issued uro void
on this account.
Nearly twenty thousand acres of
and , n largo part of which ia occupied
> y homesteads and highly cultivated
farms are , by this decision , transfer
red over to ICnov.ils , who purchased
ho St. Joe & Western claim , and to
ho Burlington & Missouri land do-
partmont. Nothing rcnnlna for the
ottlora but to make ouch n compro
mise aa they can with the owners and
o await the .notion of congress on
heir behalf.
The supreme court nuggcnts that
.ho remedy for the Bottler lies In the
court of claims , but a bill which hns
> eon favorably reported is now pend-
ng in congrosa whoso object is to ra-
mburso all Bottlers on the land grant
hrough the treasury department.
This will undoubtedly bo pushed for
ward to a apoody passage' The decis-
on of the nupromo court may bo
trlolly in accordance with the law
> ut it ia not equity. And the govern
ment ia bound to protest its own title
which it tranif jrrcd to innocent par
ies through a miiinterpr6tation of the
aw on the part of its ngonte.
BEE-OHM THE JUSTICE COURTS
The constitution ot Nebraska pro
vides that justices of the pc&co nnd
> olioo magistrates shall bo elected by
the people and shall have auch juris
diction as may "bo provided by law , the
only constitutional roslriotion being
that their jurisdiction in civil cases
ahull not extend to controversies
where the amount in dlaputo eh all ex-
ooed $200 , nor in criminal cssoa where
the punishment shall oicecd three
months imprisonment , orafino of over
one hundred dollais ; nor in any matter -
tor wherein the title or boundaries of
land may bo in dis
pute. In other words it gives to
justice cf the poaoo control over fully
throu-fourllm of all civil and criminal
OM03 whicli como up for judicial de
cision. Under our laws each precinct
in the State nnd each ward in citicaof
the first olaaa ia entitled to two jus
ticca of the pence. Omaha , with tiix
watda und n population of 40,000 , haa
tmilvo of thcau oilicialr , bcaido n po-
llco juJgo whoao jurisdiction extends
only to ciiminal nutters.
1'ho time has como for a reformation
formation of our justices courto.
In Omaha they have beoomo a stand
ing repror.ch to our judicial tjotcm.
The business of the city thrown into
the hands of our tvrolvo justices is not ,
if houcatly adminlatcrcd , cuiliciont to
maintain more than four justices
oourtti. Their income is derived entirely -
tiroly from foes , In several courto in
Ilia city it is notorious thai judg-
nent invariably goes to the eido
where Iho coats are certain to bo paid.
I iu equally notorious that many of
ur justices courta are controlled by
oltifogging nUornoys who boast that
hey own the court in return for
hroniug nil their oases into that par
iculnr channel. TIIK BKU can nnmo
nstioM of the pc&co who nro BO flag
rantly corrupt thut no responsible
ttorncy will prosecute his cases bo-
'oro them , preferring to tnko n change
if vcnuo nnd to pivy the cotta of
f HUB for rnthur than to prrjudico in
ndvnnco the CHSCH of their clients.
Corrupt oollu&lon of unscrupulous
avryors end the heads of these cost
mills ia of auch frequent occurrence
that it sjarooly cxoltcs comment
nmong members of thu bar.
The remedy for thin evil llca in do-
creaoing the number of justices of the
aoo in cities of the firat-okca. Four
jueltorn would bo Bufllolout to meet
every requirement in Omaha. The
Income cf theao courts would bo tuf-
fiolcnt to induce honest nnd capable
man to tun for the ofllcu whoso char
acter would bo u guarantee that their
decisions Mould not bo n travesty on
juBtlco , The reputation uf the bench
no lets than the beat interests of the
public would bo the gainer by ouch u
obango , und the poorer classes , who
iippour most frequently aa litigants In
minor courts , would then aland aomc
chance cf having their cases fair ! )
aud honcttly decided according to tin
lavr and the ovidcnoo.
KINOBTON , Jcmaio , has boon visited
od by the most destructive uro tlm
hut ever occurred in the West Indi :
islands. The Iocs U estimated nt eve
thirty mllllouB of dollara , and thous
ands of people have become homeless
and destitute. Fortunately the climate -
mate in the troplci will reduce the
suffering from want of clothing nrd
shelter to a minimum , and aid will
soon reach the a offerers from all parts
of the world.
THMY nro still discovering the
causes of the late cyclone in various
loading pipers. An Iowa republican
hits the nail on the head when ho
sums up the causes for the reduced
vote In the llawkeyo state ag follows ;
"Bad ncminaltoni , local bossltm
and the cranky count of some of our
loading papers had also much to do
with the remit ; but there was a
greater catmo than nil of these com
bined. The apoecoos of our loading
men Governor Sherman , Senators
Wilson and Alliac n and Mr. Kaseon
wore admirable presentations of the
achievements of the past , but they
failed to answer Iho question , 'What
of the futurd' Alive untion cannot
forever bo fed on dead issue * ; the
'point with ptido' argument waa uacd
once too often , nnd when ono of the
congressional candidates urged tnat
Iho Cole minion of the republican par
ty consintod 'in occupying the prem
ises , ' so tint the opposition could not
commit trespass nr waste , it waa no
wonder that ho was defeated by two
thousand mojoiity running eight
thousand votes behind the vote tf
1880. "
TUB moanotivo lobby about con-
grcsi is that cf the national board of
health upon which the seal of con
demnation was placed last scsalon. A
d cap1 era to effort is being made by the
doctors to regain their lost prestige
nnd start the old machine lubricated
with n liberal appropriation. The
board only asks the modest sum of
$160,000 in addition to the 9100,000
for aid of Icoal quarantine stations.
TUB Georgia legislature has just
declined n gift of $50,000 which had
boon tendered by Sanator Joe Brorrn
to the state university on certain con
ditions. The legislature declared that
the conditions of the gift would create

That would bo worse than being over
run by poor white trash that never
owned a nigger.

THE BTATE FAIR ,
An CQoit to bo Made to Secure It for
Lincoln Next ioar.
After assembling at their rooms Inst
evening , the board of trade resolved
Itself into a citizens' mooting to dis
cuss the question of securing the fair
for the coming year. There was a
strong feeling present that Lincoln
ought to make an effort to aecuro II ,
and the prevailing opinion was that it
could bo easily accomplished if our
cilia3ns vrero ready to offer reasonable
inducements. The city lira such an
advantage over Omaha as to location
and nilroad facilities that equal in
ducements In other particulars will
settle the subject in our favor beyond
dispute. Mr. Jacobs preaanted a propo
sition offering to loaeo land and erect
buildings equal to the aosotmnodations
provided at Omaha last yo r , for a
rental of § 2,500 the first year and
81,000 for four euccading years. lie
also offered to sell 151 iwros adjoin
ing the county fair cronuds lor o
reasonable sum. Theeo proposition ! !
wore favorably received and diicuinrd.
Some wcro in favor of ndvidng the
purchoao of the land and others preferred -
ferred to loaao. The fooling was
strong among u few thrit the land
ought to bo purchased and gradually
improved nnd transformed into n park
and drive for Iho city. After cone id-
orablo discussion n committee con-
tilting of Messrs. Drnr.o , Iraholf ,
Walsh , Quick aud Olark waa appointed
to reccivo bids from all parties having
suitable lands for naloor to loaco , and
report to n meeting of citizens to beheld
