There is something unutterably path

was buried in Potter's Field. His

valor , ho and another warrior being the
only two left standing at the cleso of a
deiperato battle in which a party of Sioux
-were defeated. Ho came to Now York
with a show troupe , and being taken
kick was abandoned to hii fate. Alone
and among strangers ho passed away to
iho happy hunting grounds of his fathers ,
and the rod warrior found no white man
to give him a burial worthy of hio deeds
and name. Ho was only an Indian a

news is concerned. But the supreme
court of MassachusotU takes & different
view , and ono which will bo received with
considerable surprise by the proas of the
country. A petition was filed in the
county clerk's office at Lowell for the removal
moval of ono Cowloy from the bar , and
the lloston Herald published this poll
tion , or the unbalance of it , as a
matter of nows. In doing this it
simply followed the usual custom of
newspapers. Cowloy sued the Jlcrahl
for libel , but ihlpllcrald pleaded privil
ege and the superior court sustained the
defense and throw the case out of court.
Cowloy carried the C&HO to the supreme
court on exceptions and the supreme
court has just ruled that papers on file
in the o (11 ( ccs of the clerks of courts are
not open to public inspection and thai
newspapers "cannot sotjup privilege as
a defense in a libel suit after publishing
an ox-parto statement of a case taken
from file in the oflico of the -clerk , '
although "thoy are protected
from libel in reporting cases actually
on trial. " The opinion of thi
court WAS unanimous. The Springfield
Republican calls this a no w and ingonioui
way of muzzling the press in Massachus
otts. In commenting on the remarkable
decision the Jlcpubllcan says :
If the supreme court refuses to sustain
the privilege of a journal to print an ox-
parto statement from the clerk's record ,
suppose a newspaper chose to print only
ono side of the case , when actually
brought to trial ? This doctrine clearly
renders every newspaper liable for print

When the national republican convention
vontion had concluded its work , every
loading democratic paper and poll
tician in the United States expressed the
utmost confidence in the triumphant oleo
tion of a democrat 03 thosuccossor of Presi
dent Arthur. Thonominationof Tlldonand
Hondrloks by acclamation was rogardjd
as a foregone conclusion , and it was generally
orally conceded that the only work loft
tor the national convention was simply
to ratify on July 8 what the democracy
had resolved upon before hand , in every
state and territory in the union , regard
less of faction. Tildon's
letter of declination fell upon
the party like a thunder clap from n clorir
sky. While it was generally known that
the oracle of Qrammorcy was a physical
wreck f ow were prepared for the absolute
refusal to accept the nomination under
any circumstances. Upon recovering
From the fearful shock every democratic
nock was 'craned to got a gllmpsa of the
man that Now York would put forward as
a candidate , the generals upposition being
that the man named by the Empire State
would bo accepted as the inevitable
choice of the party.
The Saratoga convention assembled
and was heralded abroad as a harmonious
gathering. Grover Cleveland waa rooog-
nizod as the political legatee of the Ci
pher Alloy Mummy. It wai given out
that Cleveland had secured moro than
two-thirds of the entire delegation , aud
under the unit tulo the vote of Now
York waa sure to bo east for him.
Whether or not this will prove correct , it
ia certain that a storm has been gathering
in Now York , which must render Cleve
land's nomination decidedly hazardous.
John Kelly , and his Tammany ,
bravea have dug up the tomahawk
and are flourishing it in a
fierce and warlike manner , while
the anti-monopolists are waging a
fierce war upon the aristocratic executive
of the Empire State. On the other hand ,
the independents and republican bolters
have espoused the cause of Cleveland ,
agd point to him as the only democrat
who can got their active aud undivided
support. While this promised ra-inforco-
mont from the disgruntled republicans
would bo very welcome immedi
ately after the Chicago coiivun
tion , it in very embarrass
ing to Cleveland just now. The friends
of other candidates point , with a great
deal of force , to the fact that Olovclaml
seems to bo moro popular with the inde
pendents aud republicans in his own
state than with the democrats.
The democratic dissensions in Now
York have given an impetus to the
boomers of rival candidates in every soo-
tion of the country. That domocratio
FalstalT , Bon Butler , is marshalling his
million of ragamuffins for the fray , and
his lieutenants swear tlmtrho is the only
democrat who is euro to beat Blaine in
not only the doubtful states of the east ,
but on the Pacific coast. Hoadloy is being -
ing nursed with a great deal of tender
care in Ohio by Johnny McLean , while
Thurman , who heads the Ohio delegation ,
proposes to play the role of Qarfiold.
Joe McDonald comes to the front with
the solid vote of Indiana , but the fact
that Houdrioks heads the delegation does
not augur well for Joseph. The tail of
the old ticket will have his own light *
ning rod hoisted lu the convention. Thq.
mighty state of Delaware Is a unit for

ocratio party had a walk away. On the
contrary , the bitter and factional contest
that is sure to bo precipitated at Chicago
next week is llablo to culminate in ono
of those magnificent blunders for which
the domocratio party is noted. All eyes

TREATMENT OF WIT
Persons who have attended the Guthrie
rio trial in the district court ; must have
received the impression that witnesses
are treated by the lawyers in a manner
that is anything but courteous. They
worry a witness in every conceivable way
and instead of assisting him to toll
plain straight-forward story , as ho really
desires to do , they persist in their efforts
forts to entangle him in his statements ,
and raako htm contradict himself. It
would scorn that the attorneys take it
for granted that the witness goes on the
stand determined to give false testimony ,
and they at once begin subjecting him to
all storts of vexatious and irritating qucs
tions , many of which are otton insulting
and would not bo tolerated by the victim
for a moment outside of the court room.
The vexing and bulldozing of witnesses
are practices that are often carried to
extremes. Some lawyers seem to think
that a witness has no rights which ho is
bound to respect. They are altogether
too presumptuous , nnd'tho sooner such
attorneys learn to bo polite and gentle
manly to a witness , and take it for
granted ho is tcllincr the truth , until ho
is proven to bo owoaring falsely , the bet
tor it will bo fur them , and the higher
they will bo esteemed by the public. An
eminent French writer in a work entitled
"Public Llfo in England , " commented
upon the English methods of examining
witnesses , and the remarks apply equally
< m well to the American method , The
writer says :
"Thoso witnesses are not requested , as
before our tribunals , to state spontane
ously all they know of the circumstances
of the caso. * * *
They only reply to specific questions
which are put to them in turn by the
counsel. This ia called examination and
cross-examination. There are few cus
toms so scandalous in the judicial cus
toms of civilized people. The interest
aud aim of each advocate being to ox1
tract from the witness otatoments ns ftv
vorablo as possible to his own thooryjnny
moans seem good to him in order to ar
rive at his object. Questions the most
insidious , the most indiscreet , * the most
annoying , are authorized by custom. It
follows as a mat/tor of course that the
most cutting manner , the least migivings
are maliciously accentuated. While the
French law takes it for granted that every
man ought to bo believed on his word
of honor , the English law , on the con
trary , seems to assume that every affirm
ation made in court may bo a priori sup
nosed to bo untrue. A dbplorablo legacy
of the times , not BO long ago , when pro
fessional false witnesses made themselves
known to pleaders in Westminister Hall
by fixing a straw in their shoo. However -
over that may bo , the part played by the
unfortunate victim implicated , in no
matter how small a degree , in the case is
almost intolerable. Should his physiog
nomy , his private life , his name , his pro
fession , his dwelling place lend them
selves in the least degree to ridicule for
oquivocno , the enemy attacks him in the
weak point with cruel joy. The public
laugh , the witness gets rod and pale , and
finally loses his countenance. Happy
still , is ho , if the judge docs not add to
Ills torture by omitting some safe and pro
fessional joke at his expense. Neither
the search for truth nor the majesty of
justice has anything to gain by such ox
Tun question naturally arises who is
to bo mayor of Omaha from novr until
the end of the unoxpirod term of Champi
on S. Ohaso , The succession is definite
ly fixed by the charter. Section 11 of
the charter provides that the election of
officers shall hold for two years , com
monoing on the 11 rat Tuoaduy succeeding
their oloctoi ! > , niul they shall hold thoirofli
cos until their successors nro elected and
qualified. Section 10 provides that the
city council shall have power to elect ono
of their own body president of the coun
cil , who shall preside at all meetings of
the council , and in his nbsonco to olcct
ono of their own body to occupy his place
temporarily , who shall ba styled noting
president of the council , and the pros !
dent oc acting president , when occupying
the place of mayor , shall have the same
iiowors as the mayor , and shall have the
same rights and privileges as ether mom
jors of the council.
Snotion 71 say * that when any vacancy
shall happen iu the oflico of mayor by
death , resignation , absence from thn city ,
removal from oflico , refusal to qualify or
otherwise , the president of the council
'or the time being shall oxorclso the of-
ice of mayor , with all the rights , privil
eges , and jurisdiction of the regular
nayor until euch vacancy bo filled , or
such disability removed ; or in case of
temporary absence , until the mayor shall
return ; and during that time ho shall receive
coivo the same compensation that the
mayor would bo entitled to , the same to
jo deducted from the salary of the mayor.
The existing vacancy In the oflico of
mayor caused by the removal of Cham
pion S , Chase , will , therefore , bo filled
y the president of iho council , Mr ,
Murphy , until it is filled by election.
Now , the only way to fill the oflico by
election , prior to the regular city eloo-
ion to bo hold in April , 1885 , would bo
through a special election ordered by the
acting mayor and council , Section 15
of the charter provides that the mayor
md council shall have authority to pro
vide for filling Buck vacancies at may
occur iu the officw of couucilmen and
mayor , or other oloclivo ofil.cs o ! the
city by calling a special election for that
The council having BO far failed to pro
vide for filling such vacancies by ordi
nance it remains entirely optional with
that body to do BO now or to allow the
office of mayor to remain vacant until the
regular election in April next. Ono
thing the council should do without de
lay. The charter requires the election of
an acting president of the council who is
to take the place of the president of the
council in case of a temporary vacancy
caused by his nbsonco or any disability.
It is obvious' that provision should bo
made for any possible contingency.

Is no end to the good stories that are be
ing related of his boyhood , Congress
man Pusoy1 , of Iowa , who wont to nchool
with him in Washington county , Pa. ,
tolls an anecdote illustrating the spirit
which has not only made him the great
est man in America but at last brought
him within a stop of the white house.
At school the Plumed Knight was
called "Nosey Blaine , , ' in consequence of
his prominent proboscis which ia still his
only homely feature , aud the boys ,
among wjiom ho w always a loader ,
physically and intellectually , were very
fond of making fun of him. Blaine ,
however , never lost hla temper. Ono
day "Nosoy" conceived Ufa Idea of being
president of the lititrary society to which
many of his schoolmates belonged , aild
ho made a rapid canvass of the field
There waslbut ono candidate against him.
who withdraw at once when ho heurd
Blaine was in the contest. Only ono ob
jection could bo urged against young
Blaine , ho was the bout dubator in the
society , the biggest boy and the brightest
scholar. Coming to Pusey ho disclosed
"Why , Nosey , " said Pusoy , "of
course I'll help you ; but you can't fill
the place. "
"Can't ' fill the place ? " exclaimed
Blaine , astonished at Pusoy's ' lack of
confidence , "whynot ? "
"Because you don't know anything
about parliamentary law. You can't preside -
side without a good knowledge of points
of order and things. "
The young candidate , euro enough had
overlooked this qualification , and was
somewhat abashed to reflect that what
Pusey said was probably truo. But suddenly
donly brightening up ho said ; "I'll fix
that mighty quick. The election is to
morrow. I'll commit Cusbing's Manual
to memory to-night.1 '
And Pusoy says ho did it. Before day
light next morning , ho know every im
portant part of Cushing by heart , and
within a week wai an authority
on parliamentary law. These who
remember Blainp'a remarkable mas
tery of parliamoutnay law while
speaker of the house , and the won
derful facility with which ho unraveled
the most intricate questions Of order ,
will easily credit Puaoy's story. His
memory of principles , dates , names and
facts , naturally Strong , has boon culti
vated until it ia more remarkable than
his gonuis for leadership and command.
Corn In Dakota.
The Rural Now Yorker.
\Vi 1 corn ripen in southeastern Dako
ta , is a question often asked , but not
very satisfactorily answered , The truth
must bo told the crop has heretofore
had but indifferent success. There are ,
however , reasons why it has been so.
The greater , number of those . who have

Even wheat , the plant that , always
grows best in Dakota , < | does 'btifc ' poorly
when so treaded. Irf.the ldrfr. 'settled
parts I'havo soon it.grSp oni.old. , groumJ-
and I question .vory.jSw'chi.jwhether it
would not compare favorably with , any
growth in Minnesota , Michigan or Wis
consin. Another reason why it has boon
unsuccessful is the fact that the right
kind of seed has not boon used , Nearly
every ono who has como hero brings with
him some need which ho is sure will ripen
in Dakota. All Imagine they have got a
good thing , and keep the name a "deep
mystery" till well on in the season it
turns out an ignomiuous failure , and
than they exclaim :
"Why , I was euro thai would ripen
that was Canada Smut , " or some ether
sort , If people would give up their own
pot corn , and procure seed grown in the
stnto , plant it on old ground and culti
vate it , I would have no fear of the re
sult. Thin waa my first season here , so
my personal experience ia rather lim
ited. 1 did try some half dozen diflbront
kinds of corn on the sod , What did busf
with mo was a white dent , the seed 03
which 1 brought from Wisconsin. I wat
told hero it was not worth planting , as ib
would bo too latoinripening ; but I deter
mined to plant It , and it turned out just
the reverse of what they predicted. I also
Imd Sibloy's Pride of the North , which
\rii3 much puflcd all over the northwest ,
With tno it waa a failure , as was also a
yellow dent from Nebraska and a white
dent from northprn IOWA. Two varieties
of flint , the seed of which waa raised
hero , did well , but the prairie squirrels
were vorysovcro on thorn , An the result
of my experiments , aud from the experi
ence of older settlers , I have no doubt
an early eight-rowed yellow corn is the
proper kind for thia section , next to
which I should tike an early white dent.
Either of these , put in an old soil and
properly cultivated , would produce a
crop with as much certainty as in any
of the adjoining states.
Illulno as a Hand-Shaker ,
Blaine , says a Washington correspond
ent of the Cleveland Leader , is ono of
the best hand-shakers in public life. Ho
seizes your hand , gives It a hearty uhako ,
and holds it firmly ami rather confiden
tially while ho is talkl'jg. Here at Bel-
laire he waa shaking hands from the bo-
ginniug to the eud of his visit , and
crowds gathered around the depot anx
ious to give him a parting look or shako
before the train left. Ho was sitting in
the car by the window and shaking the
liauda of those on the platform ouUido ,
when among others , a very pretty Vir
ginia girl came up. Blalnu seized her
uand with his hearty grip. Almost in
stinctively and at almost the same mo
ment , an old frioud of hla engaged him
In conversation. Ho began to talk hold
ing to the girl's hand , aud not noticing , I
supposq. that It was not the hand of the
man to whom ho was speaking. After
about a minute the affair began to attract
attention. The girl attempted to pull
lior hand away gently , but Blaine , who
was engaged in an animated conversation
only tightened his grip and talked faster.
Attliigtho young girl's lover , who , with
lot face , hail boon standing back in the
crowd , came up and twitching Blaino'a
iloovo , pointed out to him what ho was
doing , Ho let go the girl's hand at once
with a word of apology and the bluahij
maiden was led awny Into the crowd.

The lumber market of the Pacific coast
is ruled by the California lumber ex
change , which is controlled by throe or
lour powerful firms. The prices of red
wood are ruled by the redwood manu
facturers' association , and those of pine
by the pine manufacturers' association.
The retail dealers have to sign contracts
with these associations to buy and sell
only'nt prices fixed by them. This is in
Imitation of the special contract system
of the Central pacific. Last July , Vanderbilt -
derbilt , Sloan , and ono or two others ,
owners of coal lands and coal railroadsmet
at Saratoga to make binding arrange
ments for the control of the coal trade ,
[ t was agreed to fix prices and to prevent
the proouictlpnof/too much coal by the
compbrary Suspension of-mining. These
are the means this combination used to
keep down wages , the price
of men , and keep up the price of coal ,
; ho wages of capital. There has been
since 1872 a national combination of the
manufacturers of stoves , and its effect ,
said the founder in his speech at the an
nual banquet at Cleveland last Fedruary ,
was to piaco balances on the right side of
the lodger. The match manufacturers
iormod a combination to fix prices , and
also the coal oil men. It was truly said
that the matches lighted the fire of com
bination coal in combination stoves , and
it is combination oil which the cook con
trary to orders puts on the fires to innko
them burn faster. The American Paper
Association aims to control the prices and
production of paper for newspapers nnd
sooka. The Western Woodwaro
Association dsscovorod last Decora-
aor that there were to many
; ub3 , paila nnd bowls , and
ordered its members to manufacture but
ono fifth of their capacity. The v/all-
paper raanufusturors have nn oath-bound
combination. Lost November the Nail
association ordered n suspension of the
nail machines for five * weeks , to the great
distress of uight thousand workmen , and
raised the prlco of nails ten cents per
keg. The Vulcan mill at St. Louis stood
idle for years , its owners receiving a
subsidy of § 100,000 yearly from the other
mills of iho combination for not making
n&ils with , however , no payment to the
men who were turned off. In April the
Cotton Manufacturers' association mot to
consider the evil of too much cotton
cloth. There nro combinations of man
ufacturers of sower-pipe , lamps , pottery ,
; lass , hoop-iron , shot , rivets , chains ,
screws , chairs , harvesting machinery ,

Oath : I noticed In Chicago the caatlo
of Storey , the editor of The Timeswho ia
off in an asylum , they say , Bomowhoro
oast. As I "was riding out in the South
mrk yesterday I say this marble house
itandmg up within a few rods of the
> ark , and I asked : "What Institution is
hat ? " It had high towers running up
ive stories and waa apparently 200 foot
"That's noinstitution"said my Chicago
riond. "It's Storey's house. Ho proba-
) ly got the ground In pursuance of a job
o put through his park , jnd his mind
> oing already weak ho started to build ,
and with the tenacity of his whole char-
aeterho is determined to finish the house.
It is eaid that the profits of the Chicago
Times , which are again good , nro mainly
put into this mansion. "
Satdl ; "What in the name of God ia
t good for after it Is done ? "
"Why , " said my friend , "it is good for
nothing at all. Considering its history ,
nobody who could afford it would live in
t ; it is not fit for an Institution. "
As wo returned into Chicago my atten-
ion was called to a ladj hardly thirty-
ivo yearn old , who was sitting in a car-
lago behind two fine horses. "That Is
ilrs. Storey , " eaid the driver.
