Mr. Hosowater has no desire to malign
Richard O'Kcoflb. lie regrets as much as
much a.s anybody that diselosures and
admissions such as Mr. Lahy makes , have
shaken hi.s coalidenee in Mr. O'lveoll'o ,
and made it his duty to demand a radical
change in county managomnt. .
Why was Mike L.ihy m.ulo deputy
sheriff ? Are there no other riti/.en.s in
Omaha qtnililiod for such work ? How
could ( he ( inninnsiinnnrj countenance
the api ointtmint < if u man who was
already on Iho pay roll of the county ?
What was the need of deputy sherilVs at
the diBtriet fair when there were already
forty special policemen ? Why .should
the county pay for midi deputy sherilVh ,
and where is there any authority in law
for their employment ? How can Mr.
O'Ki'olVo oxplntn aw.iy his own record in
Rigning vouchers for double pay ? Ho
know that Mike Lahy was the janitor
and engineer , and ho knew that ho could
not bo deputy almr'UIand aet as engiiieet
at the same time. Uusides this Mr.
U'Ki'effb must have known that it rained
nearly all the fair week , Unit tlnro was
no need for deputy sherill's out there and
that the whole thing was a downright
grab and nteal.
Deputy Sheriff L hy aays that ho
h".d a good man attending to
his boilers. Was it the sann-
convict that was taken out of
jail on the 10th and 21th of October to
give Lahy a chiuieo for electioneering.
Deputy Sheriff Lahy is verv careful not
to say anything about Engineer Lahy'a
convict deputy. Why wasn't Mr. Lahy
suspended or removed at once when
Mr. O'ICcolVo's attention was culled to
this glaring violation of law and propri
ety ? ljjn't It loa'i vjry that
the MiorilV would appoint Lahy as deputy
to the fair grounds to gi"e him double
pay while electioneering for O'KoolVo ,
and isn't it decidedly iiregular lor the
sheriff to deputl/.o a convict from the
jail to do Mike Lahy'u work as an engi
neer while ho w.istramp'mg around tolvn

"The average American farmer , " says
a prominent eastern physician , "wears
out on an average two wives in tlio
course of his own life. " The statement
is an interesting ono but is borne out by
vital statistics. A heavy part of the wear
and tear and worry which strain and
rack the body and brain of our farming
communities is borne by the often unseen
but important power which sways at
once the destinies of the kitchen and
nursery , and the farm yard and dairy.
Our farmer housewives rcc.'ive far to >
little consideration at home and appreci
ation abroad. The unending care of
house and children , of clothes and
kitchen , the multifarious duties of real
farm work in garden ami pasture ami
dairy , an I the do/un oth sr carjs and rn-
.sponsibil ties \\hieh are laid on their
shoulders and willingly curried , receive
lee little attention from the oiitiido
world. The results of crops and break
ing , of building ami fences , the improve ,
ments mad. ) in opi'n air ami the wagon
loads of pro.luce carried to in irket , aru
more tangible. They attract at once the no
tice of neighbors and townsmen and give
the hard-working proprietor a well-
earned reputation fortlirilt and industry.
Hut in how many liiatancui ii the
success of the farni"r out of doors
rendered possible by the uncomplaining
energy of the tireless worker in the homo ,
whoso genius for economy and who-e
labors at the churn and in the farm yard
add to the little hoard of increasim ; siv-
inns ? The trim farmer's wife , and them
are thousands of them scattered through
Nebraska in happy little homes , hadone
as much in her quiet way towards the
development of our state from frontier to
farmland as her sturdy husband and
sons. Her work , though largely unseen ,
has been no less olVeetive. It shows in
tliu upbuilding of home interests and all
that gees to make up purity and happi
ness in the home and in thn community.
It inaniffstH its.df in the thrifty economy
of tho-u who are to make the future
wives of coining farmers and in the integ
rity and industry of the sous who will
some time take their father's place in the
Mold and furrow. The weal oivoi as
much to the farmer's wife as it does to
the farmer himself , but tint result- , have
been too ofti-n attained at the expense of
the worn-out lives of the faithful womun

Commissioner O'Kuuffu ha- , made haste
to reply to the questions wo have put in
regrrd to certain transactions by the
I'ommissionur.s which reiiitvd | explana
tion His Minivers HIM in tlio main high
ly unsatisfactory and in pu-t evasive.
According to Mr. O'lCeolfo tlioy give a
monopoly of the county road work and
grading to uvConruUflnnor Knight be
cause ho loss the work at half tlu price
paid for It form Jrly. Mr. O'lvoolfe for-
guts to say that the work Is lar jly done
by grading nuohlnos bought by the
county for the use of Mr Knight. Com
petition of i'ou si ia imposslbl with .such
an advantage. Hut why should Mr ,
Knight have preference orer everybody ?
To Iho quofttion of favoritism in grad
ing Mr. O'Kcofo pleads the baby act.
With regard to Iho enormous allow
ance to thn sheriff for feeding prisoners
Mr. O'Kecfo replies tlmt the law allows
from f > o cents to ? . " > cents n head. The
luw was made mainly to cover the high
est possible cxpcnso in boarding convicts
on the frontier counties whcro living
is high. There is no excuse whatever
for paying In Douglas county any moro
than it is worthnnd no court would dare
to overrule the commissioners in an ellbrt
to reduce laves by refusing to allow un-
roasomiblo board bills. Peter Gees nspd
to board Iho city prisoners for 33 cents
nml made money nt that.
With regard to Mr. 1'ierce , Mr.
O'Kenfl'p' still pleads ignorance of any
wiong doing , when in fact he ought to
know enough to know that Mr. Pierce
has not conducted hiHoflleo in n business
way but as a political roosting place.
Mr. O'Kcell'o'a explanation with regard
to thn letting of the bridge near Hleko's
is almost a dead give away. Ho claims
that the bridge was promised by the com
missioners four years ago but it IB very
singular that the promise was fullllled
only ten days before election. The only
specification was that the- bridge is to ho
sixty feet long. The contract was lot by
Corliss andO'Kpeflb In the absence of the
other commissioner when there was only
ono bidder. On the face of it tills
doesn't look like square woik.
With reference to the Holt line right of
way through the poor farm , Mr. O'Keollb
says $ l'JJO were reali/ed for a strip ono
hundred feet wide thro.ig'i th i whole
farm , and ho claims that the price was
suuieient beeaua. ) tin H-It line would
m.iko the balance of the farm which it
cuts through much more valuable.
This is decidedly thin. The farm is
materially damaged , and the price paid ,
aside from any question of damage , is
about one-fifth of its actual value. Had
the commissioners taken any appeal the
could have had tli3 full value , and the
county would have been at no cxpens-i ,
as they have their own attorney. Mr.
O'Keoil'o declines to explain why ofllcials
in the county court liouse are so promis
cuous in their support of each other ,
regardless of party. Th'.a needs no
Tlio County Tlolcet.
The republican county ticket , headed
by William Coburn , is in every respect
superior to tie ! do'.nosr.itic tickjt he ided
by Pat Ford. Individually and collect
ively the republican ticket merits the
support not only of republicans but of
men of all parties and independents as
well. It was an insult to the bott'f cle
ment of the democracy of thin county to
put up a ticket with such men as Pat
Ford , Brandcs and Weiss. They niu t
reuluo that as goo 1 citi/wns they cannot
alibrd to place the all'airs of this county
into the hands of disreputable and dis
honest ollieials. If the democratic party
leaders desire success they must HBO to it
tlmt their candidates com uend them
selves to public confidence by their char
acter and ability. In the present cam
paign they have boon on the defensive
trom tint start , and their overwhelming
defeat will bo a deserved rebuke in the
interests of good government.
IOWA to-morrow will give a handsome
majority tor Larraboe and the republican
ticket. All the t ilk about the democrat ?
having a lighting chance for the state
ticket is mere senseless vaporing. Sen
ator Larrabne will succeed Governor
Sherman hy at least a hands.mio plurali
ty and in all probability by a good , rous
ing , old-time republican majority. While
tnere is not so much certainty about the
legislative ticket in all seotious , hard
work , such as ought to be done at the
polls to-morrow , will do the same for the
next legislature. With both parties so
thoroughly split up on the question of
prohibition , there is no reason why that
disturbing hsue , which nuver ought to
have entered low.i polities , should mate
rially alVi'et the result. All the sigiin in
our sister state go to ihow that before
two moro legislatures have held their
sessions , the impracticability of the mea
sure will after a thorough te-st , bo gener
ally admit'o I by both parties ; and repub
licans as well us democrats \\ill unite in
demanding a sound high license law ,
such as Nebrask i is now enjov'ing to the
general satisfaction. Th s belief will
block in many counties in Iowa the at
tempt on the part of the democracy
to INI ) prohihiton as n club to beat
out the brains of republican legislath-o
candidates. The law is a dead letter in
the state to-day. Two more years will
prove this fact so thoroughly that sensible
voters oxvrywhero will stand ready to
unite on a measure which will forever
take the question of such sumptuary
legislation out of the state campaigns.
Tin : post ollice department has modi
fied the instructions relative to reports

which nothing but u radical change in

Among other thins * I charged that the
county poor farm xnw In bad hands , t
Mated that repented complaints had
come to mo about maltreatment of In
mates and employee I also charged
that the bodies < jf paupers had been
Ht'crotly taken f nun > the poor farm to
the medical college for dissection , and
that I had strong grounds for the belief
that It was done with the connivance of
the superintendent. This , I said , was
not n campaign canard , but that my in
formant was the man who handled
the bodies. I to1 1 my mi lienco
that I had called the attention
of Commissioner Timmo and 1 believed
Mr. Corliss kn vv of this state of af
fairs , but that no attention was paid to
my Information and that the county was
paying for cofllns for unburled corpses.
The charges alarmed Commissioner
O'Kcollb so much that he got Cor iss out
of bud to sign a general dcnliil and had a
garbled report of uu speech telegraphed
to the //en/Mat two o'clock In the morn-
Ing. rellectlng that these
charges allected only Iks own candidate
who as senior commissioner is justly re
sponsible for the retention of Supt. Pierce
in the face of clmrgos made by Commis-
H'otier ' Tiinmu and others , the llci'iild
with a great llourish published this ex
posure on Thursday morning , without ,
however stating who made the charges.
Following up the bit of enterprise the
Herald alluded to ridicule the Htor > '
about the corpsi-s and challenged mo to
prove my statement. The following uf-
lidavit makes good every charge t Irive
made with regard to body-snatching at
the poor farm :

Now that I have m-ide goo I my charge ,
I deem it my duly to Mat ) m lit emphati
cally I hold Mr. ! O'lvc I'.j pjisonally
re.sponsiblo for the ret mt ion of Mr.
Pierce und for the bad practices
on the poor farm. It is a lute
day for Mr. O'lveolle to plead
ignorance. As a guardian ot the
poor , it was his duty to protect them
iiguiiiHt brutality and O'itrajj ; w'lila liv
ing , I ikingout of consideration the prop
er disposal of their remains when dead.
It would bo impossible for any one to
prove that Mr Pierce sold corpses to tlio
doctors , but any m in will eon-
elude with me that there was something
rotten on the poor farm wlun tlio bodies
of wretched paupers found their way
so promptly to the dissecting mum.
There is a law regulating the disposal of
pauper bodies and if it was properly car
ried out there would be no need of secre
cy in making the transfer during the
night and hiding them for two days
under the amphitheatre. The fact that
the corpses had a commercial value of
from l.r > to $ J5 is also to the point and
needs no comment at my hands. There
are thousands of laboring men in this
city whom a cruel fate may land in the
poor house. There are people in good
circumManrps to-day who m-iy be in the
po'-r house butoiv Mr. O'Koelfe's next
term would o\piro. Ulght hero let
mo say that' ' I have no
desire to rellect upon the con
duct of medical men in procuring main-
rial for direction. 1 do. however , feel
justified In protesting.againsttho present
management of the poor farm which has
been tolerated by Commissioners Cor
liss and O'Kcctle.
