There was nothing very smart in the cap- thro , however , as the hungry chief was on hlaway to surrender. Ho couldn't boar the prospects of otarvation which stared him In the face. Dn. SCUWENK stated to Senator Van VTyck that the story in regard to hla In- 'tondod affront to the senator nt Norfolk originated In the Omaha Republican ofllco , and that there was really no foundation for it. If the fool-killer had visited the Republican office a few wcoks ago the author of the malicious canard would not have bean able to put it in cir culation. rowdy west is stirring up the Nut meg -stale with two wild west shows. Dr. Carver's and Buffalo Bill's combina tions have run against each other. The result Is a llbol suit brought by Buffalo Bill against Oirvor , and moantlmo Car- Tor's' cowboys are making Uomo howl. They celebrated the Fourth of July by a fight with the Salvation army. The gov ernor of Connecticut ought to call cut the militia. THE city council should nofloso any moxo time , but proceed at oncoto lay out its irorktfor the year , There are yet a great many workingmen in this city out of employment simply bocansa the public Improvemcnto have boon delayed so long. Ifwo are going to have any paving , Dowering and grading done this year It is high tiuio that the work should bo began , as there are only about thrao months of good weather before ua. i needs a boiler inspector. There are about 250 boilers now in use In this city .and it Is tlrao that a thorough sys tem of inspection should bo established. A practical and competent man could bo aocurad.asiboilor Inspector at little or no oxpcnao to-tho city , as the feoa for In spection could bo medo sufficient to com- penaul D him. This is a matter that we hope the city council will take under , consideration. Nearly every city of the population of' Omaha hac a boiler Inspect or , and there Is no gaod reason why we ohould not have tuch an ollicor. GEN. 11-cCooK , ox-governor of Colorado - rado , has boon giving the secretary ot the Interior some valnablo information nd sound suggestions npon Indian affairs in the Indian territory. Hoohowa con clusively tnat the land-leases obtained by the cattle men are not worth the paper they are written on , as the United State alone can make contracts with any In dian nation or trlbo ailootlng lauds. Hi holds also and substantiates his position , by citations from the revised statutes that the president nny employ the mill tary to remove trespassers from the In dian lands. Gen. McOook gives th names of seven of theas trespassers wh alone hold nearly 4,000,000 acres b ; vlrtuo of these worthless leases , am nuerta that the Indian territory is over run with speculators and adventurers o every -degree. While the advloo and oplnlono of Gou. McOook may bo unnoo esjary , ih'a efforts In bahalf of the Indian of the Indian territory may possibly havi the cueal of hastening action on the par of the gorornmont. JULY l&i was the day sot by the know ing politicians for a clean sweep in th departmental 'Washington , bnt it failed to put In an appearance on Umo. The broom may > have broken , but upon the authority of & senator , who claims to know what hoas talking about , President dent Olovolandihu never intimated that he proposed to.raako a clean swoop on the 1st of July or any other day. If , ho statements of lh.ii orell-posted senator are tree , and he claJtnc that ho gets his In formation from a cabinet officer , there muit have been a pretty lively circus at the cabinet meeting the other day. , President Olovoland Unit Inquired of the members of the cabinet .what foundation there was for that " .clean sweep story , " which had been received by the public as if It had been given oaty authority. Whether any member of the .cabinet ac knowledged that ho had been telling tales out of school , we are not tafouacd , but Mr. Cleveland Iieaid to have fivcn them all a very rlftcrous hauling over the coals. Uo gsvo them to understand also that ho had repeatedly outlined his policy , and that ho did not propose to have them etapo ono for him , In other words , he Uvlted th m toaUond to their own bati- peis , ae ftp had a mind ol hk RA.ILROA.D INDEMNITY IAND3 , The now commissioner of the general land office , Mr. Sparks , la evidently the right man In the right place. IIo has found a great many things In his depart ment that need straightening out , and his intended raforms will moot with gene ral approval from the paoplo. This will bo especially the ciso with reference to his proposed order in regard to the so- called railroad Indemnity lands. This system was inaugurated some years ago , through the manipulations of the land grant railroad lobbyists and cappers , who succeeded in securing the appointment of Gen , Williamson as land commissioner , who all through the administration of Grant and Hayes proved n most subsar- vlcnt tool of the subsidized railways , IIo It was who put in force the indemnity land system which has proved n great detriment to the settlement of the western country. According to this sys tem a land-grant railway company , when , for ono reason and another , It could not find enough available land vlthin the twenty milo limit of alternate sections to fill its grant , it was permitted to make up the deficiency by locating government lands olsowhcro. In this way the Union PaciSo and the Burlington & Missouri took up largo tractj of choicecovernment lands outsldo of the twonty-mllo limit , and disposed of them to Inside rings , who hold thorn nt high figures , thna prevent ing the homesteader from locating upon thorn. For instance , the Burlington Missouri wont clear np into Boone county , and there took np im immense tract , which wai at once withdrawn from homestead settlement , bnt in duo course of time was thrown upan the market by a land ring at high prices. The Onion Pacific did the sama thing In counties far outsldo of the twenty-mile limit. In Kansas ( he Atchiion , Topeka & Santa Fo railroad gobbled up millions of asro ln this way , and last year , npon the appeal of the state of Kansas , It wai compelled to sur render over 8,000,000 acres that had boon sot asldo for it as an Indemnity ior shortage in the amount of lands that had baau grantad to itOf canrjo whora the land grant roads have disposed of these ontiido lauds they will probably not bo affected , bub the propaaod order of Com missioner Sparks , which will upset the entire indemnity system , will hit the Northern Pacific a hard blow. The route of this road has several times baon changed in Washington territory , and It has immense claims for Indemnity which a largo number of settlers are Interested in resisting , It has .boon customary to al low roads to file maps and then select anew now route , thus bolng enabled to unjust ly withhold lands from sottlomanh The later routes nay run through a region where settlers hive already located , and who are threatened with ejectment , while the roadaclaim Indemnity for all losses to them caused by the acceptance of set tlements. The rules followed In the Kansas case will bo made to apply to land-grant-rosda generally. No greater outrage was over perpetrated npon > the honoit homesteader than this indemnity system of land-grabbing. Commissioner Sparks is ta bo commended for his efforts to undo this great wrong so far as possible. DISARM THE INDIANS. W. H. H. Llewellyn , agent of the Moscalero Apaches , makes some valnablo suggestions In the Albuquerque Journal In regard to the pravontion of the Apache outbreaks that occur almost as regular as the spring timo. In the first place ho suggests that a term of twenty- Dvo years Imprisonment should bo pro vided for any ono who sells or gives an Indian fire-arms and ammunition olthor on or off a reservation. Ho next recom mends the disarming of the Indianp , and If they need protection at any time from the aggressions of bad white men the military should be called to tholr assist ance. Mr. Llewellyn hits the nail squarely on the head. The Indian de partment does not furnish arms or whisky to the Indians , bnt they obtain thosa articles from bad white man. Furthermore , as Mr. Llewellyn says , fire-arms are sold almost every day In the weak to Indians by merchant ] in some of the largest towns of Now Mexico , yet these man are loudest In their complaints against the Indian de partment and the military whenever an Dutbroak occurs. If the Indians are dis armed they can do but little or no hirm , ind the sooner the disarming is done the bettor It will bo. It Is to bo hoped that the suggestions of Llewellyn , who Is ro- ; ardod as ona of the host agents in the lerrlce , will ba promptly acted upon. Now that the Indians no longer depend - pond upon game for subsistence , wo sannot understand what usa they can lave for firearms , and it is difficult to un- loratand why they have not boon dls * irmod long ago. In commenting upon jlowollyn'a practical suggestions , the AI- mqnorquo Journal says ; Major Llewellyn certainly exerts an extra- irdlnary influence over hla IBVORO wnrnors , nd has given to the Indian problem as much tutly , probably , aa any othpr man in the ountry , Ho Ima this great advantage over iany other theorist ) : ho is right on the round , in dally assoolation with the people 0 theorizes about , and what ho may eny on jo subject ta sure to have a practical value nd a strong element of common ) neo running through It not often found in ja learned dlteertationi of eattern phllon- iroplsts. In his letter on the subj ct pub- ihed In the Journal Major Llewellyn ealc are In the direction of a satisfactory lolution 1 this Indian problem than all the others ho have written on tha subject , And hU medy , that will certainly ha ellicaciom II iplieJ , involves no injustice to the Indian. simply draws his fanga without impau- g hla capacity for development in thn -lit direction , The remedy is simply a dijarin the cavarc4 and make it an offense fi volving impriionmeoc for twenty-five years t ! r any one ta sell them * rms or ammunition , d ill la ths whole eituation in a nutthell , ley fat ? do no injury without firearmi Without them these bloody annual raids would bo impossible , and the proper authori ties ought to make haste to nJopt this simple and perfect preventive agninit Indian out breaks. Major Llewellyn has earned a pro longation of his tenure of office by his wise and timely snggeition. HANSCOM PARK. It is a disgrace to the city that Hans com park is BO shamefully neglected. Other cities spend thousands and thous ands of dollars annually upon their parks and place them in charge of competent keepers. For the present condition of Ilanscom park the city council is reepon eiblo. It has boon under the euporvlslon of keeper ; , who , as a rule , are not only incompetent but who pay moro attention to the restaurant and Ic3 cream buslucea than they do to the care of the park. Oattlo are allowed to team at will through the enclosure and food upon the grass , while vandale are permitted to tie tholr horses to ( rocs and commit all sorts of depredations. What is needed first of all Is a competent and vigll&nt man for keeper of the park. Uo should thorough ly understand landscape gardening and the park should receive his ontlro atten tion. The restaurant privilege should bo loaeod to a person who has nothing what ever to do with the park. In the next place all future Improve ments should bo of n substantial and per manent character. Wo want no more frail wooden bridges and other cheap strutures , that go to decay and ruin in two or three ydaro. The bridges should horccftor bo built of Iron and ctonp , and the park should bo enclosed by olthor an iron or stone fence. No fence whatever would bo needed if wo had a pound law. There are many ways in which the park can bo materially improved and beauti fied at comparatively small expense. The waterworks company Is required to furnish & supply of water for lakes and fountains , and wo ought to have several of these attractive features. It Is hoped that the city council will immediately take stops to Improve the condition of Hanscom park so that It will be a crodlt to the city. It should no longer bo per mitted to bo used as a cow pasture. OUR SCHOOL TEACHERS. The efficiency of our school system depends - ponds almost entirely npon the fitness and ability of our teachers. While the board of education Is charged with the selection of teachers , the responsibility for their selection should bo entirely with the superintendent. This responsibility should not bo divided. Wo are told tnat Mr. James has been requested to recom mend the teachers whom ho considers as fit for employment during the ensuing yoar. Mr. Oamos very modestly declines to make any recommendations , but de sires merely to suggest whom the board shall employ. Mr. James should not bo allowed to shirk the responsibility which very pioporly devolves upon him as su perintendent. Ho knows better than any other man who Is and who is not qualified to teach in our public schools , and among ihoso who are qualified he knows who would bo the most efficient. The management of tho' schools vary properly belongs to the board of educa tion , but the board should not assume the odium attaching to bad selections of teachers , or rest nnder the Imputation that its cholco is influenced by favoritism , woreo , perhaps , by nepotism. Aa wo have already said , there should bo no divided responsibility In this matter. The Euporlntondent should bo required to recommend the teachers , and ho alone in the future must ba hold responsible for their competency and efficiency. MRS. DDDIEY , who shot O'Donovan Rossa and was acquitted on the ground of insanity , although not generally believed to ba insane , In now confined in an asy lum. Young Sprockets , who shot M. H , DsYoung , was also acquitted on tbo plea of Insanity , but was allowed to go free. Nobody believes tbr.t ho is insane , bnt according to the verdict why should ho not bo confined in an anylnm , the same as Mrs. Dudley is ? Mrs. Dudley had no money , but Sprcckcls had hundreds of thousands of dollars at his back. A DENIAL IN BEHALF OF HAYES. Wo have received a o opy of the July Issue of the Brooklyn.Matjszlno contain ing a somewhat longhty and explicit ref utation of the statement that Ex-Presi dent Hayes was aware of the fact that his Sixteenth street property , In Omaha was being used for saloon purposes , General BuckUnd , part nor of Mr. Hayes , states that the ex-president never know that there was a ualoon on the promises until he saw the publication of the fact in various newspapers. The facts in the casa are given by the Brooklyn Magazine aa follows : In the fall of I860 Mr. Hayes with Gen. R , P. Bucldand , a respected resident of Fremont , Ohio , and a gentleman of consistent temper- nice principles , purchased together five vacant lota in Omaha , through a real estate firm In .vhoBO charge the landg were left for ealo or rental. From time to time various parts of heso vacant lota have been leased to divers WBODP , the leeeoea themselves erecting the mildings and retaining the ownership in them , md nt no time have either ox-President Hoy-en ir Gen. Auckland owned one of these huild- nga , and consequently have never re- ! : elved any rental from their occupants , Concerning tbo particular lot upon which the aloon is located , and which it ii reported Mr , layes caused to be Bold at once when the oo- upancy of the saloon became public , we opy.by . permission , the following extract rein a personal letter received from Gen. luckland In answer to an icquiry regarding ils matter : "On May 18 , 1E85 , tht real itato agoiita wrote to me that they thought ley could sell the lot for 812,000 or 813.000. n receipt of this letter , Mr. Hayes being ab- int from home , I immediately answered , Jthoriziog them to eell the lot at the latter rurd if that was the best they could do. On IB 2Mb of Hay they wrota me lucloelog a ) eci of execution , coniideration of $13,000. r , Hayei haJ nothing to do with the nego- nothing of them until efter I had Authorized the sale , I never knew that there was a saloon on the lot until I taw tbo publications on the subject In the news paper * , which was not until after I had authorized the sale of tbo lot. " General Bucklnnd also write * that Air , Hnyoa ntsver had tbo slightest intimation that there was a liquor-saloon upon the grounds in question , and that thn building was never owned by tha cx-prciidcnt , thus elTectnally disposing of the statements that Mr. Hayca was "well nwaro of the nature of the business being canted on there , " nnd that he "several times increased the rent of hla tenant.

The month of December , 18G2 , tras spout by us in comparative poaoo and ilenty , and in higher military circles .hero was gayety and revelry. The town md vicinity of Mnrfreeaboro was strongly louthorn in feeling , and an unusual op- lortnnlty was afforded our oflicora lor octal pleasures , which they die * not fall o improve. The great cavalry general , ilorgan , was married , our own beloved 'oik performing the ceremony. P/otl- ent Davis held a levee of all the prmi- ent cfiicors , and wo had a grand review f the army.

On Monday evening , the 29th of Do- imber , th'ero was a rain , accompanied by Hinder in the north. Sorao of us , tought wo could distinguished the sound ' cannon. Tuesday morning news came .at the federal army was coming down om Nashville. All day long a line of ay clad men marched tlowly , bat eadlly , through the town , pasting on by e Nmlivillo pike towards the sound of nnou. There were no cheers aa they sjod headquarter ; , there waa not a und of a drum nor blast of bugle , but o little bittlo fliga to the contra of ( ho glments showed that the ranks were II , the rides were bright and the car- dge-boiea filled.

Confederate soldiers loved a battle , and the mon who thlrktd cunp duties , played tick , avoid * od everything that had the semblance of work were always to bo found In the line of battle , PACK TO FADE WITH THE FOE. On Tuesday evening before night the nrmlca were facing cacti other in parallel lines about three miles from Murfrcos- boro. Our cavalry , or part of it , came dashing down the Wilkinson plko with moro hurry than grace , driven in by the federals. Ono prisoner , a moro boy , wai brought in behind a big Texan , General Polk ordered him to dismount , and after many questions , bolng nnablo to extract any Information and ( getting only insolence from the llttlo Yankee , ordered him to the rear , That night onr generals determined to attack at dtyllght next morning. As BOOH aa wo could see the light horeo attended General Polk out on the Wilkinson plko to a largo white house in full vlow of the centra of both armies. This house , from the pre sence of horsemen around it , soon became - came the target of a rifled battery over a inllo to- our right , and wo , wcro ordered nndor cover of the hill bordering Stone river. General Polk , with a part of his Blair , remained on foot on the plko run ning In front of the house. The Jefferson artillery wai on n hill in a cornfield just above us in the roar of the white house. The men of the battery had loft tholr pieces and battle flag in full vlow and drawn a fire from a battery In our front that made our poclt'on ' vndor the gently elop ing hill very comfortable. Holding my horeo by the eng hitch ruin I crouched dorm among the Infantry of the reserve , who were sheltering themselves along the abrupt atone binka of the small , muddy river. Next to mo under the bank waa a young Tcnnea&eian , imooth-faccd and bright-eyed. Wo talked of the battle which vraa raging now nearer to the front where wo were I , knowing that I conld take no actlvo pnit In It , ho knowing that In a few minutes ho would bo called to use his Enfield rillo , which ho carefully examined and from which with experi enced hand ho wiped the heavy morning dew. THE FIKST'DAV'S FIQUT. Directly the order came , and clamber ing up the bank and quickly forming the line of gray marched forward through the forest In front , now filled with hissing shells aud balls. I had hardly retaken my position bahlud the bank , when a small piece of atone falling near mo caused mo to look up , and there waa my young eoldlcr trying to get down to whom I was , holding in his right haid his rifle , while his lott arm dangling by hla aide , broken botvfoen wrist and olbopr by a ploco of shell or part of an oak trco torn out by a passing ball. While bathIng - Ing the broken arm and tying a wet h&ndkerehiof around It , the call cirno for us to mount. Behind the white house wo found Gen , Dragg and Gen. Polk in earnest conversa tion. Around them clustered , listening dagorly , tha fine company of Captain Gay Bronx and our company nndor the gal lant Greonloaf , who , emoothlng with hla right hand the raano of his beautiful black marc , was the picture of a cavalier. General Bragg was In glorious oplrits and told great norra. Our left had swept everything , batteries were oura and pris oners by the hundreds. Slowly the two generals redo to the top of the hill , The horrible din of strife was ncarlng the Wilkinson plko , coming from the left to wards our center. In a few momenta , It was now 10 o'clock , the battle reached the plko and crossed It. IX THE CEDAK THICKET. Between the diverging Wilkinson and Nashville turnpikes , hero about half a mile apart and occupying about two- thirds of the epace , was a thicket. The federal line waa originally through this or on our eldo of it , and Into it were now driven those who were fleeing from their rlghr , and in It were brave men deter mined to stop the onrush of onr army. Covered with smoke , fairly rocking with with the thunder of cannon , musketry and tha howls of frenzied men for hour * , this was the focus of the battlo. Into the ccdarj brigades plnngod and disappeared , while from it , down the Wilklnnon pike , poured a ghastly stream of wounded mon , confederate and federal , walking tide by eido quietly with nil haste possible , look ing for relief and attention. For hours the sad procession moved by of mon ahot through heads , arms and bodies , moro lucky than the broken legged ones lying atill in the fire of bittlo. The bittlo now slowly swnnj towards the Nashvillepike. . The desperate federals - orals were raluctantly forced from the cedar thicket into the opening ncroco the Nashville plko and the railroad to n hill where the river , after running went , makoa a sharp turn to the north , and where our rcsarvoa would have to make a right wheel to meet them In tbo charge , A Isrgo brick honso now is burning brightly just between the two lines , and back and foith.aronnd regiments ran for ward and then back , fr m both aides , and men died by hundreds. Across the open field , between the white honso , on the Wilkinson plko , and straggles in the cedars &ni cronnd the burning house were brigades hurrying forward and hundreds of fugitives and wounded seeking the protecting banks of iho rivor. Unheeded mounted ofliccH , waving flsgs and swordv , attempt to turn jack and rally these going to the roar. Jnhoedlng , brigade after brigade march > y and through them going to the front 0 add their quota to the list of the dead md without avail to attempt to move the cderals from the hill.
