NORTH I'LATTK , Nob. , July 31. The North
1'lattn Telegrjph of to-day has the following
editorial : Un list Wednesday an injunction
wan served on the county treasurer and cleik
t of Keith county , restraining them from issu
ing leases of the school land in Keith county.
This injunction wus sued out in behalf of
prominent citizens of western Nebraska with
.v view of heading off ono of the moat stupendous
deus frauds that was over attempted in the
state. The history of thsso leases as shown
by tha petition filed in the district couit of
Keith county proacn s a pictuio of wholesale
bribery and corruption rarely witnessed. It is
. dlejjed that
A. G. Kendall , commissioner of public lands ;
H. G. Bleasdale , county clerk of Keith , nnd
others conspired fraudulently together to secure -
cure for thcninclvc1 all the school lands in
Keith county , over 100,000 acres , ut nominal
figures , and in defiance of law and justice. In
furtherance of this scheme II. C. Uleasdale
appointed three appraisers , who for a nominal
cousideiation signed their names in blank tote
to the appraisement , and the values in said ap
praisement wcro afteiward filled out by lorin
Ono of these appraisers boasts that ho m-
ifivrd over $500 for signing his name. Xo
doubt the others were paid in pioportion.
jiloasdal eadmita that his nharo in the tran
saction ww § 210 in cash and several sections '
ut' the land. According to the le-iess these
l.inds Ii.ivo been leased at from ti to GJ per
cent , on a v.ilue of 40 to " 5 cents per ncie , a.
mere fraction of thuir real value. Their real
value would bo from 3 to SO per acre , and .
they would be readily taken at that price.
The injunction that has been sued is only
injorder to make it effectual
it .will bo necessary to take steps to amend
the-e fraudulent leases. Kvoiystep in the
U.insaction in r-gaid to the leasing of tlie.-o
land-i shows fraud ou the p < rt of all concerned.
The law requites that these lands shall be
olfcred for bale after proper notice , nnd if not
cold thty shall then bo leased to the highest
bidder. Now these lands were never advertised -
tisod for nalo and were never offered for sale. !
No notice of any kind was given to the pub
lic that these lands were to bo leased , An
.ihstr.ict of the lands was received by the clerk
from Kendall , thruo appraisers were appointed
by tlm clerk , who , instead of performing their
oworu duty and per.soti lly viewing the lands
nnd making their own values ,
yon A DitiiiK
appended their names to the blank appraise
ment , and instead of turning the appraisu-
ment over to the county treasurer , whoso duty
it would havn been to ma'co ' H record of tha ap
praisement and forward the oiiginal to the
. onmmisiioner of public lands , this man Doran
h pei milled to deliberately carry off this ap
praisement and make his own v.duo nn the
> ame. There iiau abundancn of proof to Hub-
rt'.tntiatn the iibovo charges.
Hits to g ( t out of the bn : not transpiiod ,
but it undoubtedly something h.imKoliie. '
This matter of nchool land leases lun bocnmn
a burning throughout the ntato and it
is time that summary Htejn wnro taken tn ein. . '
briug the guilty to justice. The t-cliool fund 81
had bei n defrauded out of hundreds of thous- 81U

: ommerco. After allowing her shipping to
Ixvindlo away to almost nothing , she is now
trying to win'it back. Thi abolition of tolls
in the Erie canal diveited the bulk of her
, 'raiu trade , as Canadian carriers could not
jompeto with the \essels of this country
uid pay the excesfivo tolls levied by

nent is now on foot to abolish them entirely

Canals free water-routes. A piominent

Montreal yesterday which stated that the lead-
ng fornank'i-s at that port w ere firmly con- :
incod thnt the Canadian canah would be
nade free before the ) > egiiiniiig of another

The address says : "At the opening of the

ng their turn on the calender of both housen ,
t , is to the republicans wo must look for our
lif-cuesion mid division on arguments ; and did

n1 thus disposed of :
"To make woman suflrago a tail to their
jte is to defy the laws of gravitation. Pro-
libition cniild not secure woman suffrage , but
iiiman suffrage is the only povyer by which
irohibition could bo made a pixsibility , "
Tho-o demanding the recognition of God in
he constitution are reminded by the addre.s.s
'the best recognition the men uf this nation
an make of God in the constitution is to
L'cure exact justice to their mothers. "
Continuing , the addienH say :
"tho recent defection of Mime of our most
