THE deathof General Benjamin Alvord

former comrades in the army but by a

BILL STOUT'S mouth-organ is trying to
array the people of Lincoln , regardless
of party , against Weaver's opponent as a
matter of local pride. Weaver was
Stout's preferred candidate for state
troiauror years ago , and has boon of
great service to the penitentiary contractor -
tractor in pulling his appropriations
through the legislature. Brown , on the
other hand , was a bold , bad man whenever
never would allow a job or steal go
through if ho could prevent it.
HON. GEO. W. POST , United State *
collotor of internal revenue , is stumping
the Second district for Laird. Six weeks
ago Mr. Post was of the opinion that
Laird was utterly unfit to represent No-
brasda in congress or anywhere else , and
ho even talked of bolting Laird's nomi
nation. What has Laird done slnco that
tlmoT Is he a bettor man now than ho
was in September ? You can cover the
spots of the leopard with a paint brush ,
but they will still remain in his fur.
Judge Post may vouch for .Jim Laird's
future conduct in congress , but wo von-
tnro to say ho would not endorse his
note for a hundred dollars ,
SENATOR MANOEIIHON took occasion to
reprimand this paper in his glorification
speech Thursday night for tofuaing to
support Weaver , when wo are supporting
Blaine and Logan. The Senator shows
commendable gratitude in his zeal for the
re-election of Mr. Weaver , but ho should
not get angry bocaueo republicans who
do not approve of Weaver's conduct , refuse -
fuse to contribute toward paying Gen ,
Mondorson's political debts. Gen. Man-
dotsou'a elevation to the sonata is no
doubt largely duo to Mr. Weaver's per-
nonal efforts , although , as wo happen to
know , Gen. Henderson was indebted a
great deal more to Weaver's anxiety to
defeat John 0. Oowin than ho was to
Weaver's friendship or preference for
himself. But this is neither hero nor
there. Gen. Martdorsou never
could have become senator
without Weaver's active support , and
therefore It ia eminently proper and
grateful for him to labor for Weaver's
re-election. But why should any re
publican bo arraigned for refusing to
ratify the nomination of A , J. Weaver
dictated an it was by John H ,
Thurston and Captain Phillips the
political ogouta and bulldozers of the
two great railway corporations that
have Nebraska by the throat nnc
strangle every honest impulse of the
republican party ? Must republicans
who support Blaine and Logan also
oupport a candidate for congress who
is a moro creature of corporate mo
nopolies ? Are they to endorse Weaver's
record because ho calls under the re
publican flag ? It may bo party treason
to vote against Weaver , but it was
more treasonable to force upon ropub
licana a candidate dictated by the rail
road bosses , If submission to the po
' lltical dictates of the railroad bocses is
to be a test of party loyalty the pral
riea of Nebraska will be full of traitors
and all the eloquence of Senator Man-
dorson cannot keep them down.
For sublime impudence nnd brnzoi
bulldozing commend tis to the honorable
Jim Liird , Ho would swear on a stack
of bibles tlut.ho iiovor was n railroad attorney
tornoy , nnd defy nny man or paper to
prove that ho over patronized n gin mill.
With the bravado of the devil , this polit
ical desperado has the audacity to deny
not only his maker nnd owner ,
flio B. it M. railroad , but hia disreputa
ble collusion with perjured land grabbers
and his dishonorable record in congress.
These brazen denials are now being
struck oil by the thousand in Laird's
railroad print shop at Hastings and circu
lated broadcast through the second dis
trict in the shape of n "supplement" in
the papers controlled by the B. & M.
Twelve solid columns ot compounded
fiction nnd froth are hurled nt the BEE
and its editor as a refutation of what has
boon published by this nnd other papers
concerning Laird's ' career in and
out of congress. According to the
head-lines of this document all
the charges against Congressman
Laird are refuted and completely over
thrown by proof from official records and
this paper is convicted of falsehood , de
ception and suppression of facts. Reyn
olds , Stickle & Co. , are routed and 'liiE
BEE is pulverized. Van Wyck is shown
up as an artful dodger , and Jim Laird
is n saint and a martyr. ' Now , Laird
does [ not expect the farmers
of his district to wade through
-wolvo columns of hogwash , but ho im
agines that has exploded nnd pulverized
all the charges against himself
with those crushing head lines.
Liaird always looked upon his constitu
ents like an English landlord does upon
lis wretched Irish tenants. Ho regards
limsolf as a privileged character. It is
none of their business how ho spends his
time in Washington , how ho votes , or
rather how ho fails to vote in congress.
The great swashbuckler presumes upon
, heir Ignorance , treats them like so many
cattle and foods them upon husks. When
10 is charged with dodging a vote on the
) ill appropriating money for improving
.ho waterways ho tolls them ho vrnspaired
with Began. Wiiy did ho pair with
an anti-monopolist ? Regan was in
aver of cheapening transportation
and If Liird was paired with Regan
which is very doubtful Laird must bo
classed with the opponents of the bill ;
n other words the monopolist ! ) . But
ho most glaring apocimon , of Laird's
mpudonco is embodied in the following
extract from his twelve column pul
THE OMAHA BIE : sotno months ago
charged that Congressman Laird was
connected in aoino way with the success-
ul eflorts of thirteen persons to obtain
anda for a stock rancho on Stinking
Water , no against two men named Hurl-
mt and Mopro , whom it wants its read
ers to believe were bonn-iido hoino-
This charge was exploded and shown
o bo false last November , by the evi
dence of three prominent government
ollicors and at least twenty other wit-
louses. The vindication of Congressman
Laird at that time was pronounced com-
iloto and satisfactory.
Exploded was It ? Vindication pro
nounced complete and satisfactory to
whom ? To Jim Laird and the Hastings
; ang of perjurers , of course.
Did you road Inspector Greene's report
which contains the following comment :
No pretense of boni fide entry was
made by the gang imported from Haa-
ings , but the whole proceeding was
raatod as a huge joko. Ono inquired of
lis companion whore his land was ; an
other said , damn the land , 1 don't over
ixpoct to see it , " and they iront away as
hey came , nnd ecarcely n citizen hero
lad hoard of them before , and I think
not ono has seen them since.
Laird loft the night the man arrived ,
mt Kelley stayed until the farce ended.
! Tow I demanded of the registrar to know
who those parties were , and directed him
o designate their names on the books ,
lo at first said ho could only give mo the
tame of ono , Laird , a brother of the con-
; rossman , but when his memory became
nero tractable ho designated the follow
ing names nnd tracta of land as being
"part of the Laird crowd , " and then .his
uomory became flighty again , and no of-
'art could bring it down to business.
1 have no doubt there are others equal-
y guilty , but either through forgetfulness
or a disposition to shield friends , the
registrar failed to qivo them to mo :
I have no doubt that the remitter and
ocolvor were aware of the fraudulent na-
; uro of those entries , but whether they
permitted them through a desire to ac
commodate an influential political friend
) r because they were in some manner iljo
aonoficlarios , I do not know , but I am
satisfied it was not through ignorance of
their duties in the caso.
How is this for a complete vindication ?
How does Mr. Liird explode the charge
of being in collusion with a gang of land
robbers ? Inspector Green was an entire-
y disinterested oflioor sent out by the
Commissioner of the general land ofllco.
Ho had no friends to reward or enemies
to punish. Ho naturally made his cen
sure of Laird as mild as possible. But
Laird paradoo himself around as a much
slandered man and talks about being oill-
clally vindicated. Laird treats this charge
as an exploded old story when ho knows
that another inspector haa boon ordered
to investigate those frauds only three or
four weeks ago and his report is liable to
explode over Lairds head worse than that
of inspector Greene.

THE INDI01ED COUNCILMEN.
The indictment of thrro members of
the city council for accepting bribe , ? from
paving contractors has very natural ! ;
created quite n sensation. If the proofs
produced before the grand jury fully CUB
tain the indictmonta every citizen anc
tax-payer will commend that body for its
fearless discharge of duty. The only
safety vnlvo against corruption nnd jobbery
bory in municipal government is the
swift and impartial infliction of the
penalty of the law upon mercenary or
dishonest public servants ,
But it strikes us that the grand jury has
shown undue partiality in refusing to in
dict Councilman Woodworth. The charge
against him was not bribery but oimply
violation of the charter provision that
prohibits any city ofllcor or councilman
from being directly or indirectly interest
ed in city contracts.
Now the grand jury had positive proofs
that Woodworth was the owner of n sane
pit near the Platte river and has boon
selling sand to contractors a
a higher price than it coulc
have been procured from other parlies.
Contractor Grant testified that ho bough *
his sand from Woodworth , and paid him
moro than it could ho bought for because
ho is a councilman.
Other testimony was produced before
the grand jury showing that Woodworth
was indirectly , if not directly , interested
in paving contracts. It was also shown
that Woodworth receives on income ai
ngont of the Colorado sand stone. Upon
what grounds can the grand jury justify
Lhoir refusal to indict Woodworth unless
it is because ho has the Union Pacific
railroad behind his back ?
The grand jury have indicted Behm
because hia partner , Baldwin , was an
ngont for parties who were furnishing
paving material , but they refuse to indict
Woodworth who was himself on agent
nnd part of the time contractor ? Why
make llosh of ono nnd fish of another !
Why is councilman Woodworth to escape
nnd continue to manipulate contracts and
contractors when other members are call
ed to answer before the bar of Justice ?
Docs nny sane man believe that
ho Union Pacific railroad mnna
jers would employ Woodworth as
Colorado sandstone agent if he was not
a councilman ? What did Woodworth
enow about paving materials before ho
was appointed ? Can those great corpora-
ions openly defy the law and manipulate
not only the city council and board of
lublio works , but even protect and shield
heir corrupt agents in the grand jnry ?
fudging by the partiality exhibited by
ho grand jury a man employed by a rail
road corporation in absolved from obeying
.ho larrs and may boldly rob the tax pay
Our report of the proceedings before
Judge Treat of the United States court
it St. Louia will furnish now ammunition
, o the English holders of the stocks and
jouds of the Wabash who are now fight-
ng the "reorganization ichomo. " It is
clear that the wreckers of the Wabash
are having their own way in the St. Louis
court , as wo were afraid -would bo the
caso. When Judge Treat appointed ono
of the most active members cf the man-
igomont under whose regime the
iVabash was wrecked to bo receiver wo
expressed the apprehension that the spoc-
fldo of the misuse of the courts for Mr.
irould's bonoQt was to bo witnessed again
and it seems wo were right.
It appears from the report filed by the
ocotvora of the Wubatrh in St Louis
Wednesday that they have received per
mission from Judge Treat to issue re
ceivers' certificates in lieu of certain
iromissory notes for $2,000 given before
ts bankruptcy by the Wabash Company.
Phis action , puts the promissory notes
ahead of all the bonds issued to build the
road and other prior obligations of the
company , and secures their payment bo-
ore every prior lion. Why more prom- _
ssory notes issued by a railroad in its
ast convulsive struggle to escape bank-
'uptey should b3 paid off
> uforo the antecedent claims
of holders and men who had furnished
upplics , etc. , is t mystery until it is ox-
ilainod. The mystery in this case is
easily explained. Those promisory notes
TO endorsed by Gould , Dillon , Sago and
lumphreys. If the bonds , judgments ,
and prior obligations of the road were
mid off in regular order the company
vould have nothing loft to pay thoao
lotos witti , and Gould , Dillon , Sago and
Humphreys would have to put their
lands in their pockets for 82,000,000 to
neot their indorsements. The order of
Fudge Treat to issue receivers' certificates
n lieu of those notes is irorth exactly
$2,000,000 to Messrs. Gould , Dillon Sago
Ono of the endorsers who escapes his
nharo of the $2,000,000 liability is Mr.
Solon Humphreys , and Mr. Solon Hum-
ihroys Is the receiver appointed by Judge
Treat. Mr. Humphreys has boon re
ceiver for some months ; ho has not saved
.ho Wabash road , but ho has saved
jould , Dillon , Sago and himself $2,000-
)00 ) , and that a censorious world will al
ways believe is what ho was made re
ceiver for. Mr. Humphreys is the agent
of Judge Treat's court in the settlement
of the affairs of the Wabash railway ; if
Judge Treat uupposod that receiver
Humphreys would look out for the in
terests or the Wabash or the bondhold
ers in preference to those of IndoiBor
Humphreys ho is a good deal too inuo-
sent to bo a J udgo in any court to which
Mr. Gould rosorta.
The now certificates issued to iako up
the notes endorsed by this precious quar
tet of wreckers still boar the endorse
ment of Gould , Dillon , Sago , nnd Hum.
phroye , who , in the dainty phraseology
of the dispatches , "Imvo consented to n
continuance of their endorsements on
the now obligations. " Of course , since
receivers' certificates must bo paid first ,
they are perfectly willing to endorse
them , for their payment out of the re
ceipts of the company is now n ccrtninty ,
Our cable dispatches quota Labouchern's
London Truth ns saying that "tho
Wabash deal is ono of the greatest rob
borlpu of the ago. " Wlmt will the critic
friendly to America say when ho sees
G United States Judge making ono of the
wreckers of a road its receiver , nnd per
inittin ? this receiver to procure the pay
uiont of his own obligations in preference
to thosn of nil honest creditors ? It is a
spectacle which wo leave for the common *
of the European bondholders.

To the Kdltor of THE 13EK.
DATID Cirv0ctobor ; 18 , Our gifted
member of congress from this , second dis
trict , who is belaboring himself vainly endeavoring
doavoring to persuade the people thath
should bo ro-oloctod , is now in our ( Butler
lor ) county. I was deprived the pleasure
uro of hearing his spaech in this city
laat evening , but am told that ho was oa
poolally vicious against the anti-monopo
lists in general and the writer in partlcu
lar , using the epithets of rebel , bush
wacker , guerilla , etc. , profusely ; nndm nny
of mv frtuno > construed ht "tllnes" n
directed to mo. nnd as his homo 'organ
has boon much exercised over the fac
that I was in the southern army , I wil
just state that I was ; but when Mr
Laird or nny other candidate for congrosi
says that I over engaged in or sanctioned
any other than civilized war-faro ho ia n
"slander andfalsifior. | " The iwar was
closed , so far as am concerned
in May , 1805 , when I settled with the
government on certain terms which were
acceptable to mo , and honorable to the
government , which settlement I have
sacredly regarded in nil my public nets
except 1 have never voted for Mr. Liirc
and I have even "deigned" to suppotl
another soldier in preference to hia noble
highniiBa this year. Mr. Laird's shirt is
red with "OInrot , " and his "Infallablo
Conscience" is sorely wrought upon. Ho
arraigns the anti-monopolists unfor-
glvinf ly for preventing the lasy
legislature from passing ant
rostrlctivo railroad legislation , the
twonty-throp anti-monopolists , nccordin _
to this political giant , were by their
overpowering skill enabled toproAont the
seventy-three republicans from doing
anything which they so much wished to
do. Sixty-seven votes were sufficient to
pass any bill , and Mr. Laird had seventy
three straight republicans in the legisla
ture ; yet the twenty-throe antl-monops
kept them so badly scared that they
dared not vote for any bill which had
any virtue it on this question :
Senate file No. 140 passed the senate
and went to the house February 15 ,
1883 , cloven (11) ( ) days before the ad
journment , atid the fifty-oovon repub
licans in that body were prevented from
passing it by the seventeen nntl-monop-
jliatowho had been imposed upon tha
aody , clothed with votes. Now , if fifty *
seven anti-monopolists could eo
effectually deter theao fifty-seven
republicans what do you suppose the
intl-monopa would have done had there
icon 51 of them , the number necessary
o pass a bill. I eupposo they would have
) assod the bill measure without fear what
.ho republicans under Mr. Laird might
; hink or vote ; at least they would have
lad their "convictions and trusted to
; ho" people for endorsement. I fear that
; ho gallant congressman and his republican
can fellows were over-awed by oomo other
moro potent power than that wielded by
; ho little band of anti-monopolists , and
what surprises mo moro than nil is that
: heso men who are responsible for this
romisanesB induty on this question should
presume upon the ignorance of this Intel-
. ( cent people so rmlcti ns to stated up be
fore an audlonco anywhere and charge
that twenty-throe nnti-monopolists out
witted , and overpowered seventy-three
republicans. The people may bo "rag-a-
muflina , but they are not so credulous as
, o believe nny such charges oven when
made by Mr. Laird ; and now while we
are on this subject ! hope Mr. Laird will
excuse my presumption if I ask him
some plain questions :
.First Mr. Laird , did you advocate
any measure looking to the solution of
.hia . question during the last session of
Second If so , where will wo find your
speo'chos on the subject ?

The Button Register relates that J. Sterling
Morton attempted to blulT a Blaine man in
hat town last week , nnd crawled out of it in
i very nngontlenianly way. Morton offered
a bet 51,000 to S750 that CIcvelatd would bo
lected IS G. Brown accepted the offer and
-hecks were drawn by the opposing parties for
he amounts required , Brown's payable Mon-
lay mornir.girtually cash. But Morton
indo his payable , "when Blaiua was elected. "
? o this Mr. Brown naturally objected , ns
Morton could , of course , stop payment on it
t any time. Morton declined to put up tha
ash and tbo bet fell through.
t Deacon Bushnell of the Plitttmouth Jour
nal is dabbling in political poetry. His first
ffort was Inspired by tbo Ohio returns , and
he spirit pervadiuc his brief effort encourages
bo belief that ho will soon develop into a
ull-fledgod "Machine ppto. " The state is
argo enough for two : Sing :
Sling out , fling out , with bong nnd ehout ,
Your banners on the wall ,
For James G. Blaine , the sun of Maine ,
Receives tho.peoplo'd call.
With happy voice , let nil rejoice ,
And swell the churns free ,
From BCI : to lake the echoes wake
For Blatne nud victory.
