whoso noses wore put out of joint by th
promptness of the action of the commi
sioncr in ordering n now appraisement <

According to Mr. Kjndall the bm <
of public works and buildings decided t
lease the lands in Keith county last Ma
and the clerk of Keith county was dill
notified to have them appraised , Oil th
20tli of Juno this county clsrk notifio
Kendall that one of the appraisers , undc
improper influences , had retained th
list to prevent the disposal of the landi
Thereupon a now list wan forwarded an
the clerk ordered to appoint a now so
of appraisers ,
Mr. Kendall also entered a virluou
protest against the crooked methods c :
the drat appraisers by a solemn dcclnra
lion that "this department will not couti
lonftiioo any improper influence in th
natter of nppraimxl or disposition o

iur years on a salary of § 2,000 a year ?
; ut wo digress. 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. "
What does Kendall understand by a
asonablo appraisement ? 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.
I'ho High School has for years been

L'he grading of Twentieth street , which

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. A territc
ry yet in her teens , with thousands c
acres of land unoccupied , with undeveloped
oped mineral deposits , which in variot
and extent , are unequalled by any of he
noighbora , and with a number of infan
industries springing up in the larg
towns , plaoo Wyoming in the front ran
of prosperous territories. The great am
only drawback heretofore has been th
lack of transportation facilities , partici
.arly a northern ro < td. With this latte
now assured , the future of the torritor
is brighter than over.
Tha figures of the assessor shows thn
there are in the territory 648,988 head o
oUlle , 44,275 Horses , 357,081 sheep am
goats , 1,628 mules and 1,372 hogs , a to

inferences from distorted facts or by
headlong , blundering logic.
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
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
No. D September G , 1809 , contract
ith different parties.
No. 0. Contract with Northern
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. It was nudr
ity , indeed , to rpraid before 11,000,0
ot hid countrymen on the pages of t !
congressional record to complete a di
proof of his soluomn assertion that _ t !
letters ho road "corresponded precise
with Mulligan's memorandum. "
Wo dislike to break in upon Mr. Wi
liam Walter Pholps' vacation , but wo b
lipvo that rather moro than 44,000,000
his countrymen would like to hcnrhis e
f I mat ion ( f the discrepancy. Lfo h
given sorao attention to the matter , t
think for in a letter to The Evening Peen
en April 23 , Mr. Phelps siid : "Mull
gtui'a memorandum of the letters ,
which ho had numbered and index
each ono of them , was produced , ai
number and index corresponded exact
with the letters read. 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. Ti
discrepancies which it detects are supc
ficiat. A careful analysis of the tv
lists would have shown our republic
contemporary that it had no ground f
this grave charge which it brings agait
the republican candidate. The nrrang

Mr. Blaine road three letters whicl
roro not included in the indox. The

lilod to note their existence iu the list

amed no advantage by confiding their
