Starting in the district court of this county with one Giles , father-In-hiw of L. C. Htirr , as plaintiff , ami a largo num ber of property owners as defendants , it has been in ull the courts in the land. It was removed first to the federal court in Nebraska , from which it was appealed to the supreme court of the United States. Kcccntly that court , through Justice Uratlloy , rendered an exhaustive opinion on tlio subject , holding that Giles was not a bona tide plaintiff and that lie hold tilt ) property in question only as a make shift , and without consideration ; that tlio . property had been deeded to him simply that the case might bo taken to tlio fed cral court ; that under such clr cumstanccs it was wrongly in the United States court and should bo remanded to tlio district court of Lnn L cefatcr county from whence it earner.

The excursionists arc of all kinds , mill operatives , mechanics , ami employes in various trades nnd busi nesses. They have got ahead here , and they want to show their line feather : over thero. "A singular practice has grown up among tno Scandinavian emigrants in tlio northwest. The severity of the limate in some parts of Dnkato and linnosota makes winter employment an upossibility , and the Scandinavian set lers , or largo numbers of them , starter or Europe in the late fall , spend the win- cr in Scandinavia , and then return to merica in the spring or early summer 'lie round trip from the northwest to 3wede.ii and return does not cost then ver $100.

The people from ocean to ocean , from the frozen pines of the north through nil trades of temperature to wliero the orange trees bloom , are met on this national Sabbath day one in all the year on bended knee with uncovered hcnd , all breadline the same prn > cr of thankfulness , the same ncclnlm of sratltudo and joy for all we possess of glory for the republic , and prosperity for the indi vidual. Civllbed nations , whatever form of gov ernment tlm cruelty of princes or tlio extor tion ot tnikniasterslndulged in holidays and feast days , The Dle.isures of heart and mind cannot bo repressed by untoward conditions neither is tlieio any existuncu so fiuorcd thut the soul I" not praying hoping tor a butter time coming. Inflection in government has not yet been tenclicvd , so that entire contentment lias been obtained when in the ovurllow ( it enjo > niciit , the people could sit down In quiet and say , "now , soul , tnko thine ease. ' ' Nature anil man mo still In tiav.illnsnt the early dawn. No paradlso yet reached. Among the most fuvoilto the stale of man kind has been one of unrest , of struggle , of hopes dofeirod , ot promises broken , toll all in vain. Wo come tills day to volco our joy that , al though short In tlio possession of all th.it man .should have , yet we stand upon the highest plnacle of national excellence , In the oxeiclse ot rights of citi/ensliln equal to that of the haughtiest monarch , possess- In : ; full liberty of conscience , not losing the prerogatives ot the liullvlilu.il in these of the clti/on. Thank- till for all that has been received through thousands ol years by blood , Milleting nnd saciilice from tyrants , moio brutal than w.ld beasts ; from the heartless , unrelenting urn.su of tliu sellish and avaricious. It would not bo tedious or dllllciilt to make nn inventory of the world's assets ot privileges and pos sessions from tlio time Noah entered the aik and settled accounts with the mocklng.uiibo- lloving multitude , hut what a fearful b.ilanco sheet to make un the debit account tor the costs of the small bonolits , the scourges and sc.itTolds , the oceans of blood , the gioaus of men , the anguish of women , nnd the tears of childhood. I know the regulation Fourth of July Is expected to sip the lionoy sweet from the flowers ami blossoms , oven though the HOW- CM may bo poisonous and the blossoms never bring fruit , no matter , sip the sweet for the Wo must study the past to know how much . sweet wo are securing , so that each rcour- Inic annivorsaiy may add to the stock wo niav gather trom the ( lowers ol life. Wo mcot for more than the pyrotechnic nnd tinsel of glided words , and exalted bombast , for n fusilado of hreworks. All that may bo well , yet wo will do better to learn the actual nnd serious , to study the past for Us warn Ings , and obtain Irom the present a promise and augury for the future. The mariner will noverieturn to shore who floats ceaselessly inn hummer sunshine on a quiet sen , without lelluciiug upon the winds that hove , nnd some again will l.ish the oce.in Into tempest. If ho Is not pieparcd at the first muttering ol tliu storm ; if he cannot wioath the lirst mad surges of the waves , hls > bark will go down ; so will man on the hind amid the blandishments of society and the lust of pow er. The aggregation of the achievements of tlio woild would bo greater to-day had all been retained as gained fiom epoch to epoch , lint the enemies of man liavo never recog nised his puawlul enjoyment of these se- eineil , but continued to strugi-le nnd war , to conquer back and steal Irom him the tithe captured by centuries of conflict. Tliu people nio in the MI mo position In-day as In the ages past ; the relations aiu but little changed. The rulers however designated , liavo the sumo Instincts and desires tiom the 1'haraohs until now. Ho Is unwittingly nn enemy of the human family , who advises to slug hosiunws only , to bo piayerlully content with the little he en jots , and not attempt to make his own condition or the world's better. The solution ol the mission of man nnd nations seems no ne.uor than when Adam nnd Kvo took c.iro of thoK.uden in paradise. The cnrso that man should eat bread In the sweat of his brow continuin ? from that time would seem quite enough of burden , but when .supplemented by the oppression of govein- mouts , the Injustice of society , the stupidity or crinio of the Individual agniiibt Himself , the load was greater than ho could bear. 'Iho mass ot mankind bas been kept as to-day iu\vii3 : : or woon nnd drawers ol water. The life of nations has beun now or thun n Uiop of dow with cyclones of oppression ami wrong , now and then a mountain rill in n shaded dell oceans of anguish , deceits of grief. Jetlcrson claimed there were two classes the coiwivatlves to keep things as they vtcrc , the radicals to tiy and make them bet ter. No matter tl > e form ol the goveininenl or the extent of human liberty , the same two classes over exist. Unfoitnnatoly the con sorailclass hnvo in the end prevailed , Now and then masters liavo boon o\erthtowi only to como back in another shape. It was never Intended man should bo sat Isiicd with oppression nud injustice , will what should como to him by accident , or by the Miltenmco or permission of his supuriois , either In the now or the hereafter. Man was directed to seek , to knock lor the glory be- jond the grnvo nnd that ho have bread only by the sweat of his brow. 1'rovldenco intended in this moro than a Turkish bath for tlio human family. That ho should subdue tlio forces ot nntuie ; that ho should build rude cabins or comfortable duellings to protect from winter's cold and summer's heat that ho should dig to llnd the coal and piecious met als ; that he should cast uon highway nud hunlly railways ; that ho should control the lightning in its com so nnd compel it to do hisblddlnc , and apparently lias answered the question piepared by the Almighty to Job , "Uanst thou bond lightnings that thny may go nnd say unto them , imro wo nio. that ho should guide the tempest over the deep and restrain it tortho hate transporta tion of nierehiu'dlso nnd humanity , that ho should liud out systems by searching the heavenly boclloj.IN IN THIS I.ADOH there is no organized war by government or wealth atfiilnst the activity of hand or brain. The Creator Intended other nelds ot labor far moro Important , jot when men seek to search and garner there , then a howl goes up fiom coiisenatlves In one dread waining of danger It the mind should sc.nch ami fully understand the rUlits ot man the miiltituuo In the journey of life. Wo proudly boast of the ADVANCCMKNT OK THE WOIH.K from tno time when the patriarchs lived In tents and transported grain by camel , when Joseph the family i > et Mas sold by his own brothers to the Mldiault- Ish merchants nnd became great In the land ot Egypt , not many miles nwav , jet no tolcciupli , or lallroad , or mall service \\hereby a man so dis tinguished as Jacob had no tidinirs of the countries around and adjoining tncroforo knew nothing of hU son's history nnd doings with 1'haraoh , until the lunilno drove his remaining sons for corn nud learned that Joseph \sns still alive.

All this wo understand of the mighty things done on the land nnd on tlio sea. 1JUT WHAT OK MA.N of the millions nnd billions of lives worn away during the ages cone , and v hat of mail to-day ? Intelligence has been generally ( Utilised by universal education so that the laborer lias more knowledge than the patriarchs , the riotcmjs or Httrods. Kvun now knowledge Is not considered a dangerous thlnt by conservatives unless It leads to radical reforms In law or society. We realize the grunt advance In the world's projress , and again ask. What of the inun who niadn it ? It li well to note that the 1 uieu uho made etate3 , dug canals , built railroads made ships nnd nnvlgnto them , built cities nnd palaces nnd placed the \\orid on'tlris high vantage , Imit but llttlo pecuniary or proprietary inter est In tliuorksot their aeatlon , really but llttlo more than these Who move the pyrn- muls-ln the desert.

Millions ot people during thousands of vi-ar.s. liavo been jostling along the highway of life seeking TO IMI'llOVR TIIEIIt CONDITION' , to receive n fnlrrewnrd for honest toll. And when It became a grave question whether tlio lorrorsof this life wore greater than the hoirorsof the worst heroalter , governments allied with state religion have sought through corolod and mitred priests to impress upon starved , shlveiing , suffering , oppressed humanity that Tim two elements ot OOOII AND KVIIi nroas strong and antagonistic to-day as at any peilod in history. All that education , In vention nnd science has done the irood has lu tin ) same de.'reo Increased the evil. Human nature has remained the same.

They would Insist that murder , arson , rob bery and other crlmas could not bo cheeked , but the class which the 'law leaches is not really lar/e , not so large as the society pro tected nnd glided criminals whoso olfenscs nro morn numerous.

The grocer sands his sugar , the druggist adulterates1 medicines , the great meat dealers make creamery and dairy butter from grease , tal low and lard , and exchange. It for the hard- earned wages of the laborer. Through much tribulation congress finally passed a law which prohibited manufacturing the arti cle and calling or selling It as butter.

In this connection I can say , without tin fear ot successful contradiction , that no man has o\er been noininat"d , or the people sought to elect one , who was opposed to railroads or their management , except to compel a just legulatlou , a reasonable cimrgii for transpor tation , no rebates or special pilvileees to one man , or dealer , or locality , yet before a com mission created by nn act of congress to investigate vestigato the conduct ot certain railroads aided by the United States , the sumo ollleial fuither sworu that in caucus nnd convention nnd nt election ho had sought to detent men who were hos tile to rnllioad.'i and in the legislature he had defeated nosTir.r. iiAii.itoAn i.nnisr.ATiox , and oy hostllo they mean every one who does not worship the iroldon calf or Iron rod our masters M-t IIP , who dares re fuse cheerful aciiulslonco in every act or demand - mand , or has the. hardihood to question the suionlty or Infallibility of railroad magnates.

He was an Improvement upon the ordinary railroad wit ness. He was willing to como nnd then ho readily told the truth whuu ho dlu come. Would that alt thn jtcoplo of Nebraska could lead it and tben resolve to do what the conscience of every man dictates. You remember the railroad crowd have Jnl- ways Insisted that they spent no money , paid no men or ever attempted to Interfere or control elections.

" This Is the railroad platform , I hesitated to rend It as a matter of delicacy , because It does mo the honor to nllmlo to myself nnd required tlio special effort of certain rail- loads to accomplish the result of Inst winter , and that , too , as the evidence shows by n combination of straight democrats nnd straight republicans. Hut It Is Important that the people of tlio state should understand the moans used to over-reach nnd defeat their demands , hence 1 have taken the liberty to read It nnd trust all the papeis , whoso editor ials nre not written by rnllioad malingers , will publish tt fully.

What a public exhibition. Do you need anything moru to arouse the people of this state on this Fourth of July to ruaolve that sncli proceedings shall never rain disgrace its lutrlslutiiru. .Railroad managers and the politicians caio nothing for paitv politics , only ns they can make them subserve tholr ncliish purposes. And then they expect the people should bu moulded by tlio tools they puMinbe. The democratic party must be kept solid by such lieu as Ciawlord , nnd the republican paitv mist bo kept straight by the combination under the ver.satll attorney who. alter lislilni ; for gudgeons , becomes absorbed In less ex pensive fishing lor pickerel. All this must bo done to defeat demagogues and hostile legislation , which tlnee-tourllis ot the voters ot the state demand. Such mun must run your party ma chines , no matter it they crush out peisonal independence nnd ovuithrow the piosperity nnd lights of the people nnd make them the \ictlmsof hiich taskmasters , and year niter year the people are betrayed bv many of their own chosen legrslatois through tbo manipu lation of such Influences.
