Tlio village ofVnbnsh , Cass county , is
Justly or unjustly indignant. According to
the complaint lllod in the ofllco of the state
board of transportation to-day against the
Missouri Pncillo railroad company , shippers
have been denied cars at that point to shove
off their grain to the St. Louis market as
they hnvo needed thorn from time to time.
James Clark and John McCnigafllrm that this
has been the case , while empty cars have
been scattered along tlio track at every way
Htation between that place and Lincoln.
They stnto. however , that tlio company has
offered them foreign cars to move their grain
to Lcavcnworth , Kmi. , but that they could
not bo provided for further shipment as
wanted. Tlio complainants further state
that this is duo to a combination or collusion
between the company nnd foreign shippers ,
uud against liomo shippers and \Vabnsh in
particular. They also state that \Vabash
shippers had contracts with St. Louis gram
dealers that they had to abandon because
limy could not got the necessary cars to
transport , the grain , nnd that this resulted in
hcvero loss to them. For this and general
principles the complainants seek tlio inter
position of the state board of transportation ,
aim such adjustment ns equity may demand.

the track. There were two things ho
could do ho could yell , and then lot
them take their chances , or ho could

TMUS Huui.v A historical novel of Russia
nnd 1'olaml. Uy Nikolai Vasilyovitcli
( tO Ol , trauslatud by Jeremiah Curtln :
12-ino. cloth. Published by John P. Aldcu ,
It is not to bo doubted that this book
is the literary sensation of the year.
\\"o do not know what relationship there
is between the translator and Andrew
G. Curlin , 'to whom the work is dedi
cated , but it evidently is close , for the
dedication contains some secret history
of the highest importance. Before
Andrew G. Curtln was minister at the
Iltifcbian court , ho was the famous war
governor of Pennsylvania , and the
patriotic firmness and llro of his utter
ances wcro balm to the struggling men
at the head of affairs in Washington ,
surrounded by secret treachery , open
insubordination , private peculation , un
controllable rivalries , headstrong rash
ness and faint-hearted indecision.
There was a knot of governors in our
northern stales who novur fullered ,
whom no disaster could terrify and no
successes could elate beyond prudence ,
and of these Andrew G. Curtin was one.
When ho wont to St. Petersburg ho
found that his reputation had preceded
him , and ho was treated by the
c/.ar with iv cordial friendship thai
made him from that moment
the friend of the Slavonic race. It is
therefore a conjecture highly probable
that ho inspired Jeremiah Curtin to
translate tnis work of Gogol , which
deals with the revolt of tlio Xaporog
Cossacks from the republic of Poland.
Tt is an excellent translation and the
faults of the author are not to bo
ascribed to Mr. Curtin. These faults
are chietly duo tothoheatof his > im
agination , which leads him to details
which will not boar investigation. As
for example , when Andri.tlio f-on of the
Knporog Turns Bulba , falls in loyo with
tlio beautiful daughter of a Polish
"Woiwodo. ho makes him climb over
steep roofs , and descend a chimney into
the room of the young lady , an abso
lutely impossible action in'those days of
tall chimneys with narrow apertures.
The bmnlics't boys were employed for
the -nurposo of cleaning them , and wcro
often biuToeated by being wedged in and
unable either to ascend or descend.
The only medieval chimney
inside of the house was
that of the great hall for
the ovens as a rule were in a separate
building. Gogol's Cossacks do not
scorn to bo nis own , but to bo com
pounded out of the poems of Malc/.cwbki
and Zalcski , with some assistance from
contemporaneous writers. There is nls-o
a feature upon which Gogol cither did
not choose to dwell , or of which he was
ignorant. Whilst allowing that the
Jewish stewards of the Polish nobles
who had suxornln rights over the set
tled Cossacks who had become agricult
urists might possibly have vexed them
with some exactions , and that Jesuit
priests did use some harsh measures to
turn them from the Greek church , this
would not .account for the defection of
nil the nomads of the Ukraine from the
Polibh banner of the White Kaglo in
the crimson Held. The caiiho of this
defection is historical , and it was a
blunder over which every Polo has shod
tears of blood , for it caused the ruin
It must bo Known then that the Cos-
snuks beyond any question were Huns
in the true meaning of that word , because -
cause they shaved the head leaving a
scalp-loci ; , as is the nracticb among all
worshipers of the great Dragon. They
were not Aryans , but a mingling of
Afarri and Turans. They served the
republic of Poland as independent aux
iliaries out of love and admiration for
the Poles , and a livxdy expectation sel
dom disappointed that booty would como
to thobo who marched with a Polish
Pan. Many of them entered the serv
ices of Polish nobles as haiducs. In
this way they came to learn that in Po
land there were two sots of noblus , the
great nobles who were of Snxon origin ,
and the plebeian nobles who nhavcd
tholr heads and were a scalp-lock like
themselves. They also learned that
these shaven warriors wcro all
members of the pospolito nnd voted
for kings , and were before the
law as good as tlio great nobloa. As
they know that the shaven head uml the
Bcnfplook was a sign of brotherhood they
demanded to bo admitted into the re
public of Poland sis plebeian nobles , and
If this had been done n Polish king
would bo ruling in Constantinople to
day. But alas , nlus , for Poland , U was
refused. It was on account of roitor-
ntod refusals to this demand that the
Cossack confederacy turned upon
Poland , and from devoted friends nnd
admlrora tiecumu deadly , unrelenting
foes , admitting the Turk and the Tartar
to the southern palatinates , and throw
ing their whole force Into the bcule of
Gogol has chosen to represent this
change of sentiment us caused by tlio
exactions of Jewish stewards and the
intolerance of Jesuit missionary priests.
In doing this he has been fiercely parti
san , and has endeavored to explain tote
to tlio world the potent reason which
the Russians have for that savage
hatred of the Jaw which line found suuh
fearful vent in recent times. It is to bo
hoped that Americans will refuse to ac
cept his caricature of the.
either 03 a truth or ns ti
sufficient excjso for the nameless
atrocities perpetrated in Bes arabiannd
the whole of the Tchornosjom. The
picture drawn of the Poles Is lesa for
cible than that of the Jews , and will bo
considered generally unsatisfactory , be
cause the characters are not marked
with nny national touches , and are in
dividuals and not typical of Polish na
Gogol could hardly have produced
this work without a reason. It may bo
surmised that the Russians have at last
become awnro that Poland yet lives in
Austria , and now understand why the
white czar is going to war with the
Hapsburgs. It is to root out , to demol
ish , to annihilate this refuge for.Polish
thought and Polish energy. Ctil bono ?
Austria being subdued , nnd the whole
Balkan peninsula in the hands ot the
cznr , Poland will yet survive. For Po
land represents the Slavonic bottl , as
Russia represents the Slavonic Intel
lect. The spirit ot freedom , the aspir
ations of unshnckeled manhood , the
longings for a frco press and for a rep
resentative government nmong the
Slavons have chosen Poles and the Po
libh language for their best expression
and championing. This is duo to the
duality of the Slavonic race , which is
not n circle , but an ellipse , and insists
upon its two foci. Wolf do the Rus
sian leaders comprehend the Polish
shadow that walks with the Russian
substance. In the small hours
of the night when the white
czar wakes in the Winter palace
the black shadow is there with its spee-
tral lance. "Sleopest thou , or wnkest
thou , white czarV Whore thou art I
am ; whore thou triumphcst I overcome ;
where thou rulcst I govern ; whore thou
wandori'st I follow. For 1 am1 immor
tal , and me thou cnn'st not slay. From
the toundrns and the lead mine , from
exile abroad , from poverty at homo ,
from oppression and misfortune mid
sham I draw the strength that makes
mo live on. For I am Poland , and 1
shall never die. "

The author of this valuable treatise
is ono of the great constitutional law
yers ot the country , and has taken a
dignified part iu the politics of New
York. Ho was particularly active and
efficient in tlio uprising of the bust ele
ments of that city against Tammany
misrule. Mr. Storno is ono of the few
honest mugwumps , and must cause
his bretheren much pain and disquietude -
quietude by his views upon the railroad
question. As a rule the mugwumps are ,
like the boni of Cicero , and their chief
attribute is that being rich themselves ,
they believe all knowledge , all virtue ,
all capacity to bo concentrated in their
own class. They desire to see the coun-
'try governed by virtuous rich men , and
as their wealth consists mainly of rail
road bondsthey regard with horror any
view that tends in the least to diminish
the control of those whoso first consid
eration is to pay the -interest on those
bonds. Mr. Sterne is not ono of these
by any means , and ho has spoken and
written on the topic with admirable
clearness and impartiality. These are
his charncteriptics , and they are con
spicuous in everything that ho touches ,
llis diction is as clear as his thoughts
n most marked virtue in n legal writfer ,
for gentlemen of his profession arc apt
to be involved and turgid in expression ,
though lucid in their ideas. And there
is in this little volume a charming im
partiality which is highly judicial. If
he is not on the bench of the supreme
court some day. ityill bo because ho
has been too impartial for his own good.
Every one who wants to read the con
stitution of his country by the light of
strong unbiased intellect had. better
buy this book.
TitAvni.nus AMI OUTLAWS. By Thomas Wentworth -

Published by L.OO it Shop ml , Uoston.
. There .are books and books. This is
not a very high intellectual effort of the
esteemed author , and is indeed in sober
truth a thing of shreds and patches.
But they are not as congruous as such
things may be , for one-half of the book
is pleasant and innocent enough , whilst
the other moiety seems ns if written for
the express purpose of firing the Afri
can heart and bringing about a revel u-
tion of the colored people in the south
ern states. What good can bo accom
plished by rehearsing the terrible
stories of the conspiracy of Denmark
\7esey of Charleston and the insurrec
tion of Nat Turnoi-V Mrs. Harriet
Beechcr Stowo , in lior story of Dred ,
endeavored to give an idea of the
latter a remarkable man , but all who
know ot him and his doings are agreed
that Dred is but a pale shadow of the
Virginian prophet and murderer.
Will the circulation of this book have
any effect ; ' It is manifest that the ail-
ministration of 0rover Cleveland lias
made the i.outh blusterous and domi
neering once again , and it is certain
that the votes of colored men are not
counted. But , neither are the votes of
white republicans in the south. The
Atlanta Constitution and other southern
papers are saying , very emphatically ,
that if the north wishes to live in peace
with the south the idea of negro suffrage
must bo definitely abandoned. Now ,
the north very politely intimates to the
south that it intends to educate the col
ored man , and that ho shall vole , and
that if the soutli docs not lot him there

There is trouble brooding , jis wo all
know , and , therefore , perhaps , it would
have been as well if Colonel Higgiiison
had not published this book , which will
afford a famous handle to the foes of the
colored man. Tlio zeal of Cohmol
Jliggiiison is eating up the house of his
own friends' . It is not only his subject ,
but it is his tone that is objectionable.
Ho sc-oms to rejoice in the horrible
methods bf past Umowhich the colored
mon had ihmll ) ' the sense to abjure ,
and if his book should Induce any of
them to return to them , ho will have
committed nn offense that will cover his
name with oturnnl odium. What Is
done , should bo done legally , nml by the
power and authority ot the United
States , or It should not bo done at all ,

The publio owes much good reading
to the ronrlnts of the Good Company
series , which introduces to them not
only the less famous works of well
known authors , but also tlio good sound
writers who have been pushed into the
background. Dreamthorp Is by n
Scotch writer whose style will remind
the reader not a little ot George Will
iam Curtis in his early days when he
wrote "Priie and 1" and other tales and
studies in the same vein. Ho is an ele
gant essayist , who thinks justly though
not very deeply , nnd is n llterateur
rather than a creator. The chapter on
the writing of essays gives a good idea
of the man.

If Blanche Roosevelt had not written
n book about art , It IB probable that the
pre-ent vulume would not have seen the
light. It Is a great pity that It over was
written slnco instead of being a dis
criminating work that would have
served as a guide to people seeking for
information , it is only a vapid uncritical
performance that can only mislead those
who consult it. The writer seems Incapable -
capable of liking anything in reality ,
and bestows on all schools and all
methods the Mime unmeaning un
stinted praise. This is , however , only
applicable to the painters of the present
day , and the paintings which she her
self has seen. She is moro discrimin
ating with tlio French artists of the
eighteenth and preceding centuries ,
and is nt her best when writing of the
sixteenth century. In some respects
the work is very creditable.

Published by Charles L. Webster & Co. ,
Now York :
There was no more picturesque figure
in the army of the United States , when
there were a million men under the
stars and stripes , than gallant Phil
Sheridan. His memory will always re
main in the hearts of the people , and
ho is so well beloved that oven his own
memoirs will not bo allowed to boar
witness against himself. Ono cannot ,
however , help feeling a sentiment of
regret that ho should have over written
them. No doubt he did so because ho
wa.s living in an era of personal recol
lections of our great war , and there
was money.in such u work for a family
not too well provided for. Probably ho
was aided in the form ho gave his book
by injudicious counsellors , for it is
obvious that his own idea was simply to
write about himself and the part ho
look in the conllict. The pretentious
ness of maps and the historical pedan
try of long muster rolls of brigade , di
vision and corps field officers are not in
harmony with the purely personal ac
count which Sheridan has given of the
scones in which ho was so great an
actor. And they are all the moro in
congruous because Sheridan limited his
nnrativo so exclusively to his own do-
insrs thai in some instances the story is
lee bald to bo interesting. In his ac
count of Chicnmauga , for example , the
reader is annoyed at his briefness , and
vexed at the critical way in which ho
speaks of General Thomas , the hero of
that battle. Ho introduces him in a ,
ludicrous light , because after his
tremendous exertions he was so tired
that he could not speak. lie had halted
Sheridanmalting a sign that ho wanted
to speak to him. They both dismounted
and sat on a fence rail , and for two min
utes Thomas remained speechless , hav
ing , as Sheridan suggests , forgotten
what hojvantcd to say. The great com-
municaupn was that lie had a Husk of
brandy in ono of his holsters and
wanted Sheridan to have some. Dear ,
kindly old Father Thomas ! It did not
become Sheridan to turn the quiet old
hero into a jest. Such un anecdote
was well enough to bo passed around
from ono officer to another. Though
Boswoll might write in this vein
of Johnson , it is not fitting that Sheri
dan should so write of George II.
Sheridan is altogether too critical in
his memoirs , and lias hardly a kind
word for anybodyj Ho thinks that if
Thomas had contiiniod to hold on ,
Chicamauga might have boon nominally
a union victory. He criticizes Grant
witli the Hiuno freedom , and this is not
counterbalanced by the studied pane
gyric upon him in ono part of his work ,
because that scams like tin after thought
suggested by an anxious publisher. In
llis version of the campaign in the
Shenandoah , Phil Sheridan did everything -
thing , and Grant's planning is repre
sented us usclobs. for ho hud lo change
the most material purls , So also with
Lho closing scenes of the war ; Phil
Sheridan and his ciivalry did It all , and
Grant was merely a flguro-hond. Ono
would have thouirht Klioridun superior
to such boyish conceit. However , Iho
world will forget what ho has written
and remember what ho did , and in go
doing will bo moro tender to hi mem
ory than his own pen has boon.
