THE correspondence that hai been co-

it may lead to. Vie lot ia is a widow and

reunion at Minneapolis. We hops the
report is untrue , as it would be unfor
tunate for this orgsnizition to be turned
into a party machine. So far it hu man
aged to steer clear of politics , and carry
out the objects for which it was organ
i7 d , namely , to keep alive the memo
ries of the war , and to promote the ia
teresU of the soldier.
THE weitsrn states this year will ,
without exception , b ) blessed with more
abundant crops than ever before known.
Iowa , Kthruka and KuDBis particularly
trill coma to the front with an immense
yield. No larger corn crop has ever been
raised in loira and Nebraska , and Kan-
aas , which has had a _ succession of great
crops , will this year produce 4 8,000,000
bushels of wneat , an excess of about 10-
000,000 buihels over last year.

AXD now the young men of Omaha pro
pose to orgauiza a Bliiao and Login club
to be composed of personi who have re
cently attained thsir majority. While
wo have no desire to discouraga enlist-
rnotits under the Blaiuu and Logan banner
we question the wisdom of organizing BO
many different clubi In this city. Wu
now have a cantral JMiiiio and Lo aii club ,
which affords ample scope for the ambi
tion aud energy of young inea. This
club ought to include every activj repub
lican in Omaha. Until that club has at
least 500 members , or what would be
vqual to about ono fifth of tha party vote
in this city , no diversion into now clubj
will strengthen the cause. It will bo
timf ) to organize auxiliary ward clubs two
months hence , when the active campaign
in the county will begin.
PUU.SIDKJ.-T AitTiiun has called for the
resignation of General Longstroot AS
United Btates marshal of Georgia , owing
io irregularities in his ollico which can
not be explained away. It is high time
that General Longstreot should be rele
gated to private life , it ha been a
blot upon the republican parly tbat
a man like L ngstreet , educated at
West Point at the national expense , who
turned traitor and betrayed and assailed
the flig which ho had sworn
to defend , should have been
kept in lucrative positions over since the
close of the war. The Lougitrcet * and
the Mosbys bavo for years been a con
etant reminder of broken pledges made
by the republican party and its leaders in
cvory campaign. It has boon the boast
of republican * that the uulou soldier and
sailor should ba given preference over all
others in positions of honor , profit or
trust. In the light of these pledges the
rotcntioii Lugttreot in a five thousand
dollar office was not only an insult to
loyalty , but presumptive proof that party
platforms anJ political pledges are
sham and a fraud.
Ir there ever was a set ofsharks in th
country it is the pension attorneys wh
make it thtir business to prey upon th
soldier. As a rule these attorneys at
an unscrupulous sot of men , and tak
every advantage of the pensioners. Co !
encl Dudley , the commissioner of pen
* ions , is kept constantly busy in protccl
ing the pensioners from these birds prey
and with all his watchfulness he is not al
wsys successful. Some of these pcnsioi
agents have been exposed and disbarrei
from further practice before th
department because of their illegal extor
lions and irregular proceedings , and i
was thought that the rest of then
would keep within the limits of decency
It seems that congress at its last sessioi
added to the appropriation bill a changi
in the law governing the fees to ba al
lowed to pension or claim attorneys it
projecting claims before the department
This change allowed the payment of i
fse not to exceed $25 , the amount to b (
discretionary with the commissioner 01
pensions , and no part to bo paid until th <
illowanca of the claim. Heretofore tht
fee was § 10. The increase wai
made at the urgent request oi
Iho attorney * , [ who claimed that
the fee in many cases was lets than the
ictual expense incurred. It was under
stood however , and so stipulated in the
ict that the increased fee should only bo
illowed by the commissioner after being
igrced to by the president. Xo sooner ,
lowever , had the pension bill become a
aw than these men flooded the country
rith circulars , stating that the law had
ncrcascd the allowance of attorney's
ees , and that instead of $10 they
rero entitled to $23. These cir-
ulars were so worded as to lead
be pension applicant to believe that
e must pay $23 whether he desired to
o so or not. ' In coma instances it it
lid these attorney ? even demanded an
dditional payment of $15 from thcee
! nt had previously paid $10 before their
[ aims would bo further prosecuted.
This trick has been brought to
bo attention of Commissioner Dudley ,
ho is naturally very much incensed
ver tha matter. To prevent pensioners
rom being swindled by these rascals ,
Commissioner Dudley not only proposes
j deal severely with the offenders , but
.is determined to prescribe a regular
orm of agreement between attorney and
Itimant , properly sifjned and witnessed ,
bo idea being to let the pensioner know
xactly what the law is. The agreement
rovides against any extortion being prac-
iced , and tha pention claimant need
ot pay any fee more than he egrets to ,
nd in no event over twenty-five dollars.

) sed mostly of busiuois men. They are ,
erefore , organizations of eminent
spectability. There was a time when

The failure of congress to pass the bil
repealing the timber culture and pro-etnp
lion laws anJ amending the homesteac
law is the greatest boon of the year t <
speculators in public land. It is a fac
easily proven that the timber cultur
Uw was particularly beneficial to SDCCU
latora and productive of enormous frauds
Where ono settler went to woric to hon
esily carry out the provisions of the law
ono hundred swindlers took advantage o
it to turn a crooked penny by ( also oath
and forced documents. The law hai
been a practical failure from the outset
It was easily enough to carry out the
letter of the law for the first three yean
but the succeeding five years doubled the
labor and eventually overwhelmed the
settler of limited means. The specula
tor , however , finds no trouble in com
plying with the law for a year or two ,
and then sells his claim for a good rounc
sum.The fact that concrcts hu taken stops
io repeal the law his resulted in the for
mation of numerous parties in cities anc
towns in the west with the solo object o :
taking timber claims in Nebraska anc
adjoining states and territories. The
usual method of the speculators is to
send an agent in advance to select the
sections in which the claims are io be
rawe , and after complying with the pre
liminaries of the law , employ a man to
tske care of the claims , the expenses to ba
maintained jointly by the pirty. If the
bill repealing the Law should pass at the
next te&sion of cocgreis thef-o claim :
would immediately double in value , and
sell reidily , piving the holders a hand
some return for their time and expenses.
The negotiations for the wla and trans
fer of the Blair syctcm of roads in Ne
braska to the Chicago & Northwestern
stopped the trork of extending the main
line beyond Valentine The change ol
ownership having been fully completed
there is a good prospect that work will
be resumed at an early dsy. The Sioux
City Journal has good authority for the
statement that 100 miles of the rosd be
yond Valentine will be graded this year
and the iron laid early ia the spnng.
The certainty thai the line would be
built has enobursged a large number of
intending settlers'to push on thead oi
the road. It is said that all good land
contiguous to the line in Cherry county
has been taken i and the tide of immi-
crants h&s pushed far into Sioux county.
The grading of the road-bed the present
year will be a great boon to settlers in
the neighborhood , &s it will furnish em
ployment to a large number , and aid
them in diminishing the usual hardEhipB
of the first year in a new country.
The Union Pacific land department re
cently closed a sale oi 450,000 acres oi
land in Wyoming tu the Swan Land and
Cattle company , a corporation which ie
now considered the strongest and wealth
iest in the west. This land embraces all
the railroad land north , to the twenty-
mile limit , from a point near Niser sta
tion , and weit tothe Platte river near Ft.
Steele By the provisions of the sale the
present settlers on tht land can purchase
what they now occupj at a "reasonable
price. "
Another company has been formed in
L&ramie , called the Albany County Land
company. This company , The Boome
rang cayc , is composed of local capital
ists , whose main object is to benefit their
neighbors and help them retain ranges
no r occupied by lease. This corpora-
tionhaspurchasedaboutGCO,000 acres and
will sell the lands to actual present set
tlers , and parcel out those not already
applied foito be sold to small purchas
ers with a view to Bottling up the country
and developing her resources. If this
company acts in in good faith , says the
' jouicrang , and disposes of these lands
jnly to such as will cultivate and utilize
hem to the best advantage , the
csult will prove n means of
nateral advancement. The peo-
) le of Albany county do not
visit to be placed in a like situation with
hose of our neighbor , Lirainio , on the
uast , where every rood of railroad land
las boon already gobbled up by four
giant corporations , to bo used solely for
ho further enrichment of n few wealthy
tockholders. Amont ; the gontlomtm

The agent of the land department at
Choycnno says ; another syndicate la bo
ng formed to purchase n largo body of
ind south of Albany county , in Colura-
o. This too , will bo composed of pros-
tit occupants , who , by pooling their
iieans , can secure the laud on lower
crms than if purchased in small tracts ,
'ho railroad company is desirous of sell *
ig all thosu lands in a compact body ,
nd the present holders urged to act at
nco , if they dcsiro to secure them on ad-
antagoous terms.
The railroad company evidently in-
ends to dispose of all lands in the terri-
.orios as rapidly as possiblo.oither iu larger
r email quantities. There is a double
icontive for this : the certainty that
ongress will compel the company to take
ut patents for the lands , making them
nbject to local and genera taxation , and
[ in necessity of replenishing the coin-
lany'a treasury. Thu method of sale
doptcd by the company is beneficial

100,000. While the members of the
company are very reticent , it u under
load that a consolidation will ba effected
with the Ghoyumie , Black Hills it Mon
tana railroad company , which was incor
porated about three mouths ago , aud a
railroad be constructed from Cheycnn
to North Liraroie. thence westward wit
a final terminus at the Yellowstone Na
tional Park. This movement is justly re
girded as the greatest enterprise over in
augurated in the Territory since the con
struction of the Union Pacific railroad.
The retirement of Ordway from th
governorship of Dakota brings int
greater prominence the territorial cap
itol question. With the two rival citlc
of Yankton and Bismarck , claiming th
honor , with the territorial officers abou
equally divided , the new governor wi
find the task of harmonizing both fac
Uons au impossible one. The now cap
itol building at Bismarck is about fin
ishcd. It was rushed to completion b
mon whoso chief ambition was to "go
there" in the briefest possible time
Bismarck has nine points of the la *
and a decision of the supreme cour
in its favor. This latter fact will sottl
the governor's residence. But th
question of where the legislature wi ]
meet is the rub. The Rapid City Jour
nal says the members elected in Yank
ton and other southern counties will no
go to Bismarck , and it is just as cirtair
that members elected in certain parts o
North Dakota will not go to Yankton. I
is extremely probable DikoU will have
the interesting spectacle of two leeisU
tures in session in the territory at one
and the same time. There is no reason
to suppose that the animosity cf ono sec
tion sgiinst the o'.hor will be overcome
to such a degree that any compromise
between tbe representatives of both can
be accomplished. The war will probabl ]
be carried on , each legislature ( so-called
will pass bills , and the governor , whoever
he may be , will bo called upon to sign ,
veto or ignore them , as in his judgment
may seem best. In cither case the now
gavernor will not find the gubernatoria
chair a soft one.
The cattle shipping eeason has absu
commenced , and by the 1st of August
will be under full headway. The now
Omaha Stock Yards will ba opened later
in the season , but in time to entertain a
large majority of the cattle of Nebraska ,
Wyoming and Colorado. The Cheyenne
San claims there will be a slight falling
off in shipments this year , compared with
last year when the total reached 148,012
head. This it ascribes to "tho fact that
thn shippers are depending more on their
own raising , and the drives from the
west are falling off. The drive from
Texas is larger than ever before , aboul
350,000 head coming in. The Wyomiuc
association have their inspectors stationed
at Omiha , Council Bluffs , Pacific Junc
tion , St. Paul , Valentine , Mandan anc
Wiles City , and are ready for the cam
paign These inspectors saved 1,210 heac
of cattle last year , all estrays , valued a
about $40,000. "
An important discovery has been made
on the Jencks farm , three miles from
Yankton , Dikota. While boring an ar

1'ittaburg Chronicle.
Ground Hog , a Cherokee citizen of tha
Indian nation , h&s boon found guilty of
murder by the Choctaws , and sentenced
to be oxccutediSeptombor 20. The "pass
ing away" of Ground Hog will undoubt
edly bo in the usual Indian manner ,
which is by shooting. In this way the
Mormons resemble the Indians , though
the Mormons "used to , and probably do
yet , allow a condemned man some pref
erence , giving him a choice between be
ing shot or hauged. The Indian has a
horror of hanging. Ho considers it a
dog'd death nud has doubts about
his entering the happy hunting
grounds with a broken neck. So though
Ground Hog has been sentenced in the
Ohoctaw nation , as ho is uf their first
cousins' family , the Cherokocs , ho will bo
allowed to "piss away" nt the end of the
ntlo. It is qtiito possible that ( if ho is
not an unreliablj reuogadu ) ho will bo al
lowed to return to his homo unattended
and attend to his farm and family duties
until the day of execution. It is quite
possible that a date in September was
lixed upon to afford him ample time to
"lay by" his corn and get things fixed up
around homo. If this is so , ho will
be under no surveillance , but simply civo
iis word that ho will bu on hand at some
specified spot on the 20th. In the in-
: erim ho will go about hia business in his
usual manner , and it will be a breach of
otiquet to mention the matter to him.
On the 28th Ground Hop will appear
at the appointed hour and place , neatly
dressed and with his hair oiled and
ilaited. Ho will bo the moat uncon-
serned person present. His mother , if
10 has ono living , will fix his hair , and
) et him something after the fashion of a
child. After \vhilo a man will whisper
a word to Ground Hog. Then Ground
Elog will arise and saunter off to an open
ilace , hia mother and others will go
away , and a man not aeon before and
irobsoly some cousin of Ground Hog's ,
sill corao out of the brush with a rifle in
its hand , aud walking up to him with n
piece of charred wood , make a mark on
Ground Hog'a white cotton shirt , light
over the heart. Then , without a word ,
at about five pace ? distant , ho will send n
3ullet at that mark , and Ground Hog
will bo with hia Minitou. If Ground
Bog ia a church member , which it ia
quite likely he ia , either Methodiaf ,
Episcopalian , or Catholic , ho will receive
Christian burial , and quito possibly in a
cofiin , though more probably in
a red and black blanket. Whether
Christian or pagan , it is pretty certain
that in a quiet and ralhor accretive
way a bow and arrows , and perhaps a
rifle , will DO wrapped i up with him in
either coffin or blankets , and , no matter
how good a Christian , quietly otf by
themselves the relatives will kill a dog or
two. and the mother that bore him will
plaster ashes or mud upon her head , aud
with her hands elapsed at the back of
ber neck , grovel her head in the dust of
the prairie as she bows toward the set
ting sun.
