According to Mr. Kon- all , the grounds upon which the Keith > unty injunction suit is brought is b.iso- ss , because Attorney General Powurshas indorod on opinion that the lnuU ap- raised at less than § 7.00 an aero need it bo offered for oalo buforo leasing , and i the Keith county lands are only op- raised at twont-fivo cents an aero they mid bo leased without that formality , ere is the milk in the cocoanut. Ken- ill , smuggled a law through the legisla- ire that can bo interpreted to suit the md grabbers , and then they fortify lomaolves by an opinion from the at- irnoy general. Lands that are worth vonty dollars an aero are appraiaod at Fty cents an acre , and being no ap raised they need not bo offered for sale , ix per cent on an appraisement at half dollar an aero would coat three dollars year for 100 acres , or § 30 a year r 1,000 acres and no taxes. There millions in it' A man with iry small capital can do a land office isiness. How does this honest land mmusionor.rcgard such appraisements ? 'as it in the interest of the otato that ruls in Keith county , which are report I to bo worth three dollars an acre , ould bo leased on an appraisement for ronty-fivo cjants per aero ? Six per cent i twonty.fivo conU an aero and no xes ! "There is one thing which does not era to bo kupt in mind , " eaid Mr. ondall , "and that is that the school nds are re-appraised every five years , ia accordingly better to appraise thorn a reasonable rate and got thorn under use than to appraimi thorn too high nud t no income from them.

DJOS not every hool.boy in Lincoln know that when o bars were letdown by allowing ap aisomoutsat any price , u high premium is offered for wholesale perjury and > ud ? What do the land sharks care out roappraisoment five years hence ? icy dent intend to hold the lands five ars. They simply sell out on a bonus and a parties that purchase those leases are t on the track to secure low appraiso- mta the next timo. Meantime the state s boon systematically swindled and mil- us of acres have passed out of its eon- 11 for twonty-fivo years at a moro song , will take a great many interviews in Lincoln orgau of the "forty thieves" explain away and justify these school id frauds. IPJiOVE TJIK 11IQU SCHOOL QllOUNDS. I'ho High School has for years been ) priao of Omaha , not only becaima it ono of the most magnificent school ildinga in America.but because its loca- n makes it the most prominent structure the city and the surrounding grounds Capitol hill are a thing of beauty and oy forever. L'he grading of Twentieth street , which II HOOU be completed , botnoou Dodge \ Davenport streets , will very materi- y improve the approaches to our High tool grounds. An opportunity to put iso grounds in presentable shape is now urded which the school board should all moans improve. [ fur obvious reasons this work should done without delay. Unless the high i bankmont is graded downand walled will endanger the lives and limbs of j ichool attendant * . Now , we do not liovok.lu doing things by halves.Vo not believe in' Cheap John economy and do not approve temporarymakosht w hero the moans arc on hands for BU stantinl and permanent iniprovomnn The high school grounds are always t first place viewed by visitors to Omali whether they are tourists , cxcursionii or business men necking a now hot wont of the Missouri. For our own pc pie these grounds afford all the combin advantages of a public ? < juaru and pat The proper and most economic thi for the board ot education to do is to 01 ploy a lirst- class landscape architect ai lot him draw plans that combine a : group the natural with the artificial , ai lay out the grounds into a beautiful Ian scape.

Thos. urgls , secretary of the Wyoming Stock owera association , cUims the disease is first introduced at Mix well , Neb. , it May , by a bunch of cattle belonging lUukiii & Co.

A m named Searls owned a bunch of out sixty-five. Of his number forty 1 already dead. The diaoaso , r. Sturges says , is not bred in live cattlo.

The story of Wyoming territory , n told by the assessment roll , is ono of th most gratifying exhibita of growth an prosperity in western annals.

In the New York Times of Mondaj last there appeared a loading editorial irticlo entitled "Tho missing Mulligan letters. " When Mr. Blaine took from Mulligan the lettori which were after ward road by the hard-pressed statesman n the house of rooroaontativea , ho took ilso a memorandum which Mulligan had nade of the dates of the letters in a package with a synopsis of their con- outs. This schedule called for fifteen otters or , to bo exact , fourteen letter * tnd ono paper entered as "contract with Northern Pacific. " The Congressional looord for June 5 , 1870 , shows t'aat Mr. Jlaino road just fifteen letters on thn leer of the house. Ho said at the time : 'Thank God Ahnigh'y , I am not afraid 0 show them. Tiiure they aro. There 1 the very original package. " Acain , ust before sending to the clerk Mr. Mul- gan's memorandum , ho said : "I have ow road those fifteen letters , the wtiolo f thorn. The housp aud the country ow knows all there is in them. They are atod , and they correspond precisely ith Mulligan's memorandum which 1 ave hero. I keep tlii * memorandum 113 protection to myself , for it ia very val- able aa showing the identity of the 1st- jra in every rpipect. " Did Mr. Uiaiuo , in fact , road the lot- > rs , and all of the letters , which ho had ikon from Mulligan , or did ho suppruts jmo of the moro damaging documents i the budget , supplying their places ith comparatively innocuous epistles iii rdor to keep the tally right ? It is nood- iss to cay that this is a very important uestion. The Times endeavors to establish the icts that the fifteen letters submitted to 10 house by Mr Blaine , with so many rotossions of candor and unreserve , were ot the fifteen letters called for by the [ ulllgan memorandum. It prints the lomoraudum itself , and also the dates f the letters actually read in the house , n the strength ot certain apparent dis- ropancteo between the two lists , the imos insinuates that Mr. Blaine oooivod his colleagues in the house hilo pretending to take them into his mfidouoo and to put himself on honor , i it wore. If that was the case no moro Bsplcable trick waa over devised by any uutod rascal. The Times finds that mr letters called for by the momorau iim were not read by Blaine , while ho id read four letters that were not in * udea in the memorandum. It asks : Where were the letters called for by 10 following entries in Mulligan's mum * auduui ? No. 4. July 25,1800 , on tha same ibjoot. No. D September G , 1809 , contract ith different parties. No. 0. Contract with Northern joitic No. 8 October 24 , 1871 , Fisher to l&ine urging settlement of Northern cifio railroad account. And why is it by a most singular coin * loiioa Mulligan's memorandum is silent to four letters read by Mr. Blrine , ariug dates of July 3,1872 ; April 20 , 72 ; April 25 , 1872 , and July 2 , 1809 ? , n it bo that this splendidly audacious ttesmsa substituted some harmless let * ra from his portfolio or manufactured r the ( ooisioh tha four letters on Mul-1 ; an'a list but not.road ? If so , it waa J a fatal , a most terrible blunder not doctor the memorandum before eondi it to the clerk to bo road.

This ww ful demonstrated on the lloor of the Iron atid ia a part of the record. " Yet Mr. Phelps was substantially rig and the Times has been led into a fnl position by carelessness hardly less o cusablo than deliberate dishonesty.

Blaine certainly amed no advantage by confiding their rmtonts to the public. As they merely dded evidence of his connection with ulroad speculations , and , as they really uro not needed to fill out the number illed for by the accompanying memo- indum , their production by Mr. Bltiuo joms to ua to strengthen tha presump. on that he wont straight through the ickago wrested from Millignn in the f cl ip us interview of Mjy 31 , 1870 , at the .iggs house.
