I Goveiuor Tbayor to-day mulled the follow
, ing very interesting letter to tno Oinuhn
Herald. It will bo read with n great-deal of
interest by the Io > al friends of the governor
in Nebraska :
Liscot.x , Neb. , Jan. 0. To the Editor of
the Omulm Herald , Omiha , Neb. : In the
Herald of Iho 2nd fust , you quote an article
from the St. Louis Republican , headed
"Where Is Governor ThujeH" In the llei-
nld sorno days previous j ou had an article
referring to m.\self aud the protest I for
warded to Senators Munderson and Paddock ,
headed "When Was Ho in UurnesU" Thun
jou quote from un interview with mo , repro
duced fiom the Lincoln Journal of December
HO , ISN'I , fiom which you quota as follows.
"Tho democrats won the i election and the
presidency. They have the responsibility of
conducting the government. They hnvo the
light in political ethics to fill at least all the
oflicos necessary to the proper meeting of that
responsibility. Under the rule of fair play ,
the administration should have the unre
stricted namjng of all its agents to the end
of securing ; i cheei fill and loyal cooperation
with its policy. Wo have nlwaj s churned so
much for our own party , wo should bo will
ing to concede no loss to the democracy. " I
stand by what I then said and I say now that
I conccilp to Mr. Cleveland the light to fill
the executive offices with democrats. I con
cede to him the tkiqutstioncd right to make
Frank Ireland or lr Bear , ( u confederate
officer , ) or anj other good dcmociat United
States marshall for the state of Nebraska ,
and I would vote for his conili mation. I ex
pected him to fill all of the i\ccutlvo : offices
with democrats such offices ns collectors ,
customs , iutctnul revenue , postumstcix ,
United States marshnlls , land officers , ter
ritorial govcrnot sand secretaries ; and if 1
were in the senate 1 would vote for the con-
111 mation of such appointments. I hnvo
never questioned the light of the president
to put even confederates in thcso offices.
Whether I liked it or not , I hnvo never ob
looted to theii confirmation , but I never would
usbont to the placing oi a man who had done
all in his iwwor to overthrow und de
stroy the constitution und the Union , upon
the bench of the fiupremu court , to expound
und interpret the constitution. In the In
terview whii h you quote , 1 may hnvo neg-
lifted to muke this exception , but I certainly
did , In sovcrul speeches which I mudo u year
ago last autumn , say to the people that I
would confirm Mr. Cleveland's appointments
with thu exception of the nppolntmcnt of
rebel upon Uio supreme court bench , aud
there wore muny who heard mo make thu
exception. Lmipttu-ot and Mo by accepted
the results of the war , apparently in good
fulth. uii'l ' admitted that they were in error ,
but they were only up ] > ointed to subordinate
positions. There is a vast distinction between
Mich appointments nnd appointing judges of
the United States supreme court : the only
couil which can expound Iho constitution of
the United States , tuul v.hose declslocs txio
irruvorsablu l.iv.s.
In iM'il John A. Campbell , judge of the
Unl'-rd States supreme com t , scornfully left
Ills se'it and turned his back upon that bench ,
spit upon tlo : constitution , und engaged in
organized secession and rebellion against
that court and the constitution Of the United
Stales , which ho had taken u solemn oath to
huppnit ; he did all In his power to overthrow
that supreme Ivnch and thnt constitution.
Was ho , or wu he not , a traitor ! Whether
ho Is living to-day , 1 do not knaw , but if ho
won1 , and Grove ? Cleveland should nominate
him for u Justice of thnt supreme bench ,

had , in the early part of the war addressed
a communication to Jeff. Davis as "Presi

Kitme republican senate infoimed President
Grunt that Gushing could not bo continued

of a felony and sentenced to prison. Ho
insweicd that ho had been convicted of the
ciimo of forgery by the district court of Arn-
> ahoo county , Colorado , und that ho served n
> ai t of the tcini for which ho was sentenced ,
vhen ho was pardoned by the governor of
.hnt state. The conviction was also proven
jy other testimony to which the prosecution
uado no objection , the fact being virtually
tdmittod. On the part of the defense the
record of the conviction was offered in evi
dence , to which objection being made , it was
jxcluded. Held No error , or , if erroneous , ,
t was without prejudice , the fact having
jcon already unquestionably established.
.t. Impeachment is an attack upon the
.ircscnt credibility of a witness ; and an im-
Kmcliing witness who testifies that ho knows
/he general reputation of the iKirsou attacked
'or truth and veracity , will not bo excluded
from giving testimony ns to such reputation
it the time of the trial nnd permitted only to
testify to the tcputation of the witness ut n
prior time. The true question is : What is his
reputation on at the time ho testifies !
4. The indictment charged the murder to
navobeeii committed with n "bludgeon. "
The testimony loft It In doubt as to whether
death was produced by a blow with a bolt or
jlub. The court instructed the jury that
if death was produced with a blow with
bludgeon , bolt or club , it would bo sufficient
us to the manner of producing death. Such
instruction was held collect.
5. In criminal prosecutions the jury must
be satisfied of defendant's cuilt beyond a rea
sonable doubt from the evidence. They must
not go outside of the evidence. Hence , an
instruction that the evidence "includes not
only the sworn testimony of the witnesses
who have testified , but till the circumstances
sui rounding the trngedj" was erroneous.
ti. AVhilo it ia doubtless advisable , and per
haps bettor to use the statutory language
descriptive of a crime in an Instruction , yet ,
where words are used which convey the
same meaning and import , nnd which cannot
bo misconstrued by the jury , the instruction
uiny not thereby bo rendered erroneous.
7. It is the duty of a trial court to submit
to the jury by way of piopor instructions
such principles of law ns may bo applicable
to the case on trial , as it appears from the
evidence ; und ulso such principles as may bo
applied to witnesses who are interested In
the result , or whoso testimony should be
weighed with special care and caution , as
accomplice ! ) ; but it is not projier to discuss
the iwllcy of using such witnesses. This
should bo loft to counsel in argument.
8 The Jury alone nro the Judges of the
weight of testimony. Therefoio un instruc
tion on that "evidence of good chui actor is
entitled to great weight where the evidence
is weak or doubtful , but is entitled toery
little weight when the proof is strong" was
held to bo erroneous.
0. Instructions examined together arc
found to bo erroneous.
10. In the absence of evidence to the con-
ti ary , the law presumes every ono innocent.
And this legal presumption of innocence is a
matter of evidence to the benefit of which
the party accused is entitled. Garrison vs

A Review of Different Toarao in the
Now Loaffuo.
Batting AverajteH or the New Omaha
Team A Very Strong Showing
GoBsIp About Various
Sporting Kvcnts.
Kaso Ball Talk.
It is a trifle premature to predict wflo will
be the pennant wfnncrsof the new western as
sociation , considering the many comparatively
unknown quantities in the different teams.
However , a resume of the personnel of the
teams will probably prove Interesting readIng -
Ing for the local enthusiasts , und it is here
with given with cursory comments.
First , iu point of interest , here , at least ,
comes the Omahas.and without exaggeration
Omaha's claim for lit st or second place is ns
reasonable us that of nny team in the asso
ciation. The team is not practically the
championship Oshlcosh team of last season
us has been so declared , by nny means. There
is Lovett , Itho piouiisiug twirler , for whom
there was a lively scramble this
fall by nil the leading nluhs of
the country , but who fortunately
fell to Omaha. Next year Lovett will un
doubtedly prove ono of the most formidable
occupants of the box in the whole country ,
und u tower of strength to the local team.
The management to-day could sell Lovett for
W.OOO or J.000 , but ho will not bo allow ed to
go ut any price. They have also received
llattorlng o tiers for Miller and Annis , and
could dispose of ono or two others ut a IMJCU-
niary advantage , but all will bo ictaincd.
The other members of the team uro Wilson
und Cooney. catchers ; Flynn , Burdick and
Cussiun , pitchers ; O'Connell , iirat ; Miller ,
second ; Dorun , third ; Walsh , short , and
Burns , Messitt nnd Campanu for the field ,
If this isn't n strong aggregation it would be
pleasing to know where jou will find one.
With harmonious team work , ctllcient cap
taincy and thorough tnanagemant , the Oma-
hus' next season , should surelj not disappoint
their most sanguine admirers.
A most dangerous competitor for the Hag
will bo found in the Kansas Citys , and muny
good Judges luto-thcm as the strongest team
In the association , To begin with , tbev have
Swartzel , who , was the star pitcher of the old
Western league , but in no detail does ho rank
with Lovett. ' Then they have Jim Manning ,
who is ono of thc'best fielders in the country ,
Johnson , who did such excellent service ut
thud for the past season's champion Topokas.
Ho also wielded the stick with the best of ef
fect. Conway aud ) Guuson , the old league
buttery , are likewise included in their ranks ,
und CumpaiL unil Cartwrlght , the much
sought alter New Oilcans plajors , besides
Joe Ardner , C. L. Keynolds , Jake Wells , Jack
A. McCuithjvEd : Winkleman , M. Lynch , W ,
F. Knight , George Kopf , Mike Bradley and
Hinsamaer.So. . much for the Cowboys.
They will maljo tough opx | > neuts.
Another team that will make a bid for first
honors , is the St. Paul. Topping the list is
the old veteru7 ! ! , Joe Quest , who eight years
ago was the finest second bosonum in the
country. Ho has not foi gotten his olden
skill , us Is uuipl ) testitied to by his work of
the past season. Hudolph Keminler , of the
old Cincinnati ! ) und St. Louis Biowns , is
another good man , while ICiirl is consldeied
by competent Judges ono of the most superb
catihcrH in the profession. Then there is
Shufer , of the Altoonas , Dwyer , John San
ders , P. L. Murphy , John Pickctt , Jack Cor-
bett , Fred Jeanc , Charlie Uiloy Tom Mor-
rlssoy , J. C. Blngham und V. C. Anderson.
A strong combination , Fiut thu sain of Bill

materially lessoned their chances for the
The St. Louis crowd must not bo gungod
too lightly. They will bo able to make things
mighty Interesting for the best of them.

Moines Is apparently especially hostile toward
Omaha , nnd if they lose the flap. nncl beat
Omaha out in the series they'll bo happy.
Their prospectn for any especial felicity on
this seore , however , are exceedingly btnull.
At Milwaukee Manager Jim Hart has suc
ceeded hi getting a good crowd together ,
among whom are some old familiar faees.
Leach Maskrey is one of the old Louisvilles ,
and is a good Welder and reliable dtickcr. Ar
thur Ferson , one of the pitchers now with
the Philadelphia * on the , is also with
this team. Then there is K. N. Mills , Wil
liam Shinkle , William Fuller , P. K. Pettio ,
Joe Strauss , U. L. . Lowe , D. J. Davlu , W. F.
Harney , Ed Warner and Tom Foster.
Chicago is sanguine of creating a suiDrlso
before the pennant is won. They have
Schocncck , the giant first baseman ; D1 E.
Dugdale , the great backstop ; Engcno Mo-
rlaity. of last season's Indianapolis team ;
Fred Lange , K. , r. Henglo , H. C. Lei oy , John
Crogan , J. E. Dunn , Ucorgo Hooks , J. U.
Ualhs , J. W. Nicholson and J. A. McC.iuley ,
Minneapolis is still busy on the lookout
for talent. So far the men signed are but
little known here. They hnvo Jim Bionson ,
who was with DCS Mollies' last season ; George
Winkleman , Mike Lynch , F. Knight , Kreig ,
Klopf , Hawes , Patton , William HHIIUS
and Tom McCollum. It is a trifle
early in the season , us was mentioned In the
outset of this uitlele , to predict the positions
of the teams next season , but hero goes at a
risk : Omaha , Kansas City , St. Louis , St.
1'uul , DCS Moities , Chicago , Milwaukee and
Thu Team's Hatting Strength.
That Omaha will have a great team next
season goes without saying , and while her
chances aie as good as any for the pennant ,
she may full short. Last year's disappoint
ment In this i egavd is still fresh 111 the
minds of all. Hut there is no comparison
between thlsycai's team mid the late la
mented. Glance ut the batting list for in
stance , O'Connell , Flynn , Miller , Hums ,
Doran , Burdick , Coonoy , Walsh , Annis ,
Campanna , Messitt , Wilson and Ixivctt.

No team in the western association can
make such u batting exhibit. From a tare-
ful insjx'ction there seems to bo but ono ele
ment minus in the team to invest it with the
collective strength which the individual ubil
ity suggests. That is the want of u cumiie
tent team captain. The onb tuoln the list
who would make u fair attomiit aio Miller
and Walsh. The former has the abilitj the
knowledge but lacks the necessary grit and
ambition Walsh , too , is well up on the
| > oiiits of the game , but his Judgment In
handling the men is poor There is no man
among the entire team who can bo compaiul
with Shannon , who was to have boon captain
had ho been signed , but now Unit there is
little chance of engaging him , Miller , the
next best man , will bo installed in this Im
portant position.
