Hoffman Ijibcl Suit ,
After six days trial tliu jury in the case

wrttiT has rendered n verdict awarding
$1.000 damages to the plaintiff for sup-
po cd iniurv to his feelings and reputa
tion. .Such a verdict would have been
rendered nowhere in Nebraska outside
ot Uiu-oln.
At the otilsot this suit was instigated
by the rings and plunderers whu
hung mound the .state capital , and
by newspapers that muko it their busi
ness to shield every dishonest man who
holds an ofllro. llohind those came the
political bank , which , in connection witli
u great railroad , has kept in abject sub
jection the business community at the
state capital. To that class of corniornntc
Hosowiitcr and the HKE have for' twenty
yars been a mortal terror.
With n populace prejudiced by a venal
press tind overawed by money power anil
" late house influence there was very little
chance for fair play and justice.
In imv other county a verdict for the
plaintilV , in the face ol tliu testimony ,
would never have been rendered. An
appeal for a new trial hns been made ,
and thuro are ample reasons why 11
should bo granted. The precedent
established in tills case will not detct

ing conspiracies and conspirators , public

The verdict of this Lincoln jury has nol
vindicated Governor Dawesand his pri
vate secretary. The high-handed outrage
which took place at thu capital when tin
wooden-logged man was shot down in
cold blood by the detectives for a reward ,
which the governor had promised , will
novcr bo forgotten or condoned. Tc
punish the editor of this paper for callinp

Qoro'n Honriiornw.
Great alarm prevails at the stale cap
ital over the discovery that Van Wyck'i
appeal for a popular endorsomeut wil
destroy nil the chances of defeating tin
choice of the people. So Mr. ( ! ere , the
great railroguo editor , has raised u scare
crow with which ho expects to frightor
people from voting for Van Wyck. 1I (
solemnly warns everybody against print
ing Van Wyck's name on the rcg
ular tickets , and goes so far as
to say that any man who at
tachus Van Wyck's name to the ticko
with : i paster will have to go to the penitentiary
tontiary for violatina the law agains
fraudulent tickets. This man Gore evi
dently imagines that the people of Ne
braska are n sot of idiots. Voting foi
Van Wyck is not voting for a candidate
but merely an expression of preforonci
for a candidate to bo chosen by tin
legislature. It is perfectly proper
and legal for any man to print
either in the middle or at thu botton
of the ticket his "preference" for Unites
States senator. Air. Gero's pretense tha
because Van Wyck is nominated by anj
party for the ollico his name cannot bt on any regular ticket is all bosh
Tliu law against fraudulent tickets simply
refers to canuidatcs who are cloctc (
directly by the people , and then only Hit
name inserted in place of another candi
date whotio name is omitted from tin
ticket cannot bo counted. The Unitoc
States senatorship is not an elective oftlei
and Van Wyok'd name will notin any wnj
tend to deceive the voter who might desire
sire to vote for the candidate of anothci
party. It is perfectly prcpostrous tc
threaten anybody with penalties foi
voting with pasters. The law has m
such intention and pasters have beer
voted all over the state at every clcctiot
since the law was passed , nlr. Gere' :
advice to vote on separate tickc.tsfor sen
ator is in keeping with his scaro-crov
threats. All the candidates are voted 01
ono ticket at n general election. Kvei
when voting for presidential electors n <
hoparato ticket is ; iscd. The judges o
election will tbrow out the separati
tickets if offered. The whole thing is :
stupid attempt to frighten timid pcopli
who do not know their rights in th
premi&cs. It is n notorious fact that several
oral hundred votes were polled at tin
election of 1870 for United Suites .senator
and returned by the canvassers to thi

What is the consequence ? Thosouthon

that Mrs. Cleveland's absence was "ai

families of Richmond. " They do no
explain why Mr.s. Cleveland was ealloi
upon to honor Miss Davis by her presence
once i they do not perceive that they hat
arranged for an insult to Mrs. Clcvciatu
in the part assigned to her , and througl
her to the loyal north. They are enl ;
chagrined that their nice liltlo scheme t <
exhibit the president and his wife as celebrating
obrating the moral victory of the confederacy

frustrated. This shows what the boutl
expected from a democratic victory. I
shows also that the north is not proparcc
to giatify that expectation.

meeting of the Society for the Provontioi
of C'ruelty to Animals , which will bi
held to-morrow evening at the residouci
of Judge Savage , on Twcnty-seoom

effort made several yc.irs ago to main

Results of Prohibition.
The HEP. of Saturday contained n dia
patch from Atlanta , Ga. , showing tha
the ell'ect of prohibition in that state ha
already been to largely increase illici
distilling. Prohibition having closed tin
saloons , moonshine whisky is peddlci
about in wagons , covered up witli apples
which travel tnrough the country am
stand in secluded streets in towns , giviuj
all needed facilities to negroes and pee
whites for getting all they want of th
most villainous whisky made. Well-to
elo people send abroad for their Hquoi
and drink as much as over. Thus pro
hibition docs not prohibit in Georgia.
In ono day , recently , in Portland , Mo.
fifteen liquor cases , a part only of : \ ver ;
long docket , wore passed upon in the su
perior court , and lines and costs imposed
umountinc to $1,030,85. Nothing mon
conclusive than tins can bo cited to shov
that the general sentiment of that clt1
does not sustain prohibition , or moi
would not bo found to incur such pen
altics fur soiling liquor.

have our drug stores converted intc

The 1-intont Shocks.
Since the widespread earthquake
shocks of August 151 there have been frequent
quent recurrences of slight disturbance !
intLe region about Charleston , but these
have generally not been so marked ns te
occasion any alarm save among the extremely
tromely ignorant and superstitious , ane
confidence had become qulto genorallj
restored. On Friday , however , sharj
shocks were felt through a considerable
portion of the area in the south that wai
atlectcd by the great seismic disturbance
and in scmo localities there was a renewal
nowal of the feeling of alarm and anxiety
which prevailed after the first calami' '
tous visitation. At two or three place :
thcso last shocks are said to have been as
severe jis these felt in August. They die
not , however , do any damage , boyoni
opening scams in the earth , which oc
ciirred in a portion of Virginia , and up
selling typo in the fourth story of a news
paper ollico in Washington city.
This pronounced recurrence of the dis
tiirbMiccs will still moro distinctly iudi
catc the area in which the conditions pro
ducing them are present in great force
or in which at least they arc pe
culiarl ? susceptible to seismic influence
but whether the demonstration wil
be of any considerable value to science
once , one is compelled to doubt , in vie\\
of the very littio that lias apparently
boon definitely learned fioin the August
disturbances. The investigation and
study given to these phenomena- seen
not to have brought the scientists anj
nearer together ns to the cause and ori
gin of carthqakcs than they were before
or , in fact , than they have been at any
time in the last half-century during
which this subject has been a matter 01
scientific study. There have been printed
during the past five or six weeks any ex
tent of theories , all learned and most of
them plausible , but no two in full agree
ment , so that there is still no undisputed
ground upon which scicsmoiogists meet
in accounting for the origin of earth
quakes. The phenomena , however , have
become of such great that tliej
will continue to bo a subject of earnest
study , and every fresh revelation thai
may contribute to abettor understanding
of their causes and nature will bo care
fully noted.
