A citizen ot Harvard , tn thin state
propounds some queries to TUB BEI
which wo doom proper to answer con
It appears that after a heated centos
nn issue had boon mndo bcforo Ulstric
Judge Morris with regard to the rlgh
of the city council of Harvard to over
rule remonstrances against the issuing
of licenses to soil liquor. According t
our informant Judge Morris hold as fol
1. That the Slocumb liquor law of tin
state wns intended to bo a prohibitory law.
3. That the protest of oven ono person 1
nuniclont to prevent the council from grant
ingn permit to soil Intoxicants.
! ) . That objections to the moral charnctc
of the applicant may extend back to thi
crndlo of the applicant , nnd If nla ciitlro ltd
cannot stand the ordeal of such a test , ho 1
not the proper parson to soil.
4. That ho wlio has at any prior time soli
on a permit is disqualified on the ground tha
ho has aold adulterated liquors.
If Judge Morris has boon corrcctl ;
quoted hia version of the law is oxtraor
dlnary , to Bay the least.
The Slocumh law waa designed to bi
what la expressed in its title , ' 'An ac
to regulate the license and sixlo of malt
spirituous nnd vinous liquors. " Tin
title of nn act is its index , ana nlwnyi
express the intent ot l.ho law. No suol
word as prohibition occurs in the titli
of the Slocumb bill , but the right to re
fuse license is conferred by the act upoi
ooarda of county commissioners am
town councils wherever public sontl
mont , expressed in their election , is op
posed to the traffic in liquor. The manifest
fost Intention of the lawmakers and thi
law was , local option to regulate , re
strain or prohibit , aa the majority o
the pcoolo in any county or town ma ;
The protest ot ono person is just a
good as these of a thousand persons
provided that "it is satisfactorily
proven that the applicant for a liconsi
has boon guilty of a violation of any o !
the provisions of the Slocumb lav
within the space of ono year ; or , if an ;
former license hold by the appllcan'
has boon revoked for any misdomoano :
against the laws of this stato.
The plain intent of the law regarding
moral character is that no person con
victed of a felony or minor crimina
olTonao shall bo granted a license to sol
liquor. For such olTonsos the record :
"from the cradle to the gravo" may b <
searched , and , if produced , would sus
tain a remonstrance. But ill repute
that rests upon hearsay would hardly b <
suinciont as a bill of attainder.
If the dictum of Judge Morris is cor
root with regard to adulterated liquors
no liquor dealer in Nebraska is entitloi
to a license a second timo. All liquor :
are notoriously more or loss adulterated
The purest of native and imported
winos and the best brands of domestii
liquors -are an admixture. The enl >
unadulterated liquor that wo know of is
the pure corn juice in the distillery
and oven the distillery alcohol will con
tain a mixture of various chemical sub
stances. , *
Judge Morris , who was once upon i
time u storekeeper in an Omaha dia'
tillcry , ia bound to admit that fact.
THE TUADU COXQttCSS.
There is a growing interest in the
trade congroas ol the three Americas
which is to assemble in Washington it
October. The state department hai
been advised of the appointment of del
egatea from nil the countries that wil
bo represented in the congress , oxcop'
those from Uruguay and Venezuela
and it is estimated that the momborshli
of the congroiis will bo about seventy ,
It need hardly bo said that the dele
gates will bo representative mon of the
aovoral countries , selected by reason ol
their particular ability to discus ;
and intelligently consider the verj
important questions that will bo pro-
son ted to their attention. Prom hav
ing regarded the matter of accepting
the invitation of the United State !
aa an affair of courtesy , it it
evident that the governments o.
South and Central America have come
to look upon the congress as really a
very important event , nnd hence they
will send their boat citizens available
for such a aorvico.
Perhaps nothing could hotter il ;
lustrate the growth of interest in the
congress on the southern continent
than the final decision of the empire ol
Brazil to participate in it. Owing
to various conditions , chief of whiol
was the disturbed political condition ol
Brazil , it was not expected that coun
try would bo represented in the con-
cross , but a prominent officer of trie
government has boon commissioned tc
attend , and it ia said he has also been
instructed to nogotalto a commercial
treaty with the United States. Our lasi
treaty with Brazil was negotiated
eleven years ago , and pertained en
tirely to reciprocity in trudo marks
The only treaty of commerce and navi
gation wo have over entered into with
that country was that of 1828 , whioh
bus slnco terminated. Brazil has al
ways shown a friendly dispositioi
toward this country , and she oilers per'
haps the best opportunity of any ol the
countries of the southern continent foi
the development and extension of ou :
trade In that direction. She is the
largest of the South American countries ,
having a population of about fifteen
millions , and her people are enterpris
ing and progressive. The United
States did * a trade with her in 18SE
amounting to sixty million dollars
which was moro than twice the value
ot our commerce with Mexico , and
nearly equal to tha value ol
our trade with Canada. Ol
course much the greater part of oui
commerce with Brazil ia in what we
buy of her , but the fact that she desires
to negotiate a commercial treaty with
the United States is evidence of a wish
to become more largely than BUO hat
been a purchaser from ua , and this dis
position is worthy of being encouraged.
The action ot Brazil , with other indi
cations of the growing interest taken
in the objects of the trade congress ,
render much brighter the prospect o
some practical good resulting froit
It. A gentleman recently roturnet
from a visit to tha republic !
of Central America , where ho Intel
viewed the presidents and leading states
men of those countries upon the sub
jeot of the congress , states thut ho fount
thorn a unit in their desire to rovers
tho'present syfltom of giving Europ
ninety par cent of their trade. All c
them expressed the hope that tin
United Suites will attentively consldo
the things which will bo presented n
tha congress that have operated to tur
their trade to Europe and away from it
natural channel In this country. Thos
who have predicted the complete failure
uro ot the trade congress scum likely I
have occasion to confess their mistake
At any rate the present outlook 1

The portion ot the Sioux rosorvatioi
to bo opened to settlement is not roprc
sontod by these who have pivon It care
fnl inspection to bo qulto the paradtsi
it haa boon supposed to bo. Ex-Govot
nor Poster expressed the opinion , as th
result of his observations , that a groa
part of the now territory is not wort
much for agriculture. Ho thought thr
perhaps one-fourth of the whole , boln ;
arid , can not bo used for grazing or ac
ricultural purposes , and of the remain
ing three-fourths the groatof pot
tion would bo- beat for grazing. Th
climatic conditions would have t
chungo before agriculture conld b
made n success. As it ia , the intona
heat of the summers burns up the crop :
There is insufficient rainfall , and irr :
gallon will bo necessary. It is un o >
cellent region for vegetables , and gor
orally for grazing , but not for growin
A correspondent who has ovldontl
given very careful study to the ontir
region to bo opened is not altogothc
flattering in his description of il
though ho docs not go so far as Mi
Foster in depreciation of its ngr :
culural worth. Ho remarks the
within its boundaries there is aueh :
variety of soil and condition a
would socm adapted to fill the wants o !
any ono seeking a homo in the nowoi
portion of the west. The bottom land
along the streams , ho says , afford the
beat facilities for general agriculture
the boil being in nearly all cases deeper
or , richer and loss susceptible to thi
drouth. For stock-raising and graziiij
the region lying in thooxtromo wester
part , and between the head waters c
the White and Bad rivera , will bo fount
most suitable. Titnbor is found nlon |
the rivers and crooks , and very llttlo 1 :
any other placo. This correspondent re
marks , in conclusion : "Lot it bo understood
dorstood that this territory now to bi
onenod is not a paradise , where indue
try. economy and shrewdness are no
necessary for success. There ia n
moro certainty of a full return from tin
seed sown in thia region than in an ;
other , but it ia equally auro. Th
home seeker who comes hero must decide
cide to undergo and forego. There wil
attach to thia now region all the dis
comforts whioh are the usual accompaniments

THE STItUOULE IN UTAH.
Although the Gentile majority li
Salt Lake City at the recent electioi
was only forty-one , it was sufficient ti
justify the congratulations with whicl
it was everywhere received. It dee
not appear to have taken the fight ou
of the Mormons , however. That olcc
tion was for members of the legislature
The great struggle for the possession o
the city government will take plnci
next spring. Meantime the Mormoi
managers are not likely to hi
idlo. Already a schema of cole
nlzution - is hinted at. A para
graph has appeared in the Mormoi
organ asking all persons having room ;
to lot to communlcato with a certain
Mormon , who can supply them will
roomers nnd boarders. This is coir
strucd to mean a vast scheme of col
oni/ation , nnd it is by no moans ira
probable that such is the purpose. I
would bo qulto in line with the cunning
of the Mormon politicians to bring intc
the city a few hundred of the faithfu
nnd keep thorn there long enough ti
give them apparently a legal vote , ant
when the election arrives herd them a !
ths polls to overwhelm the Gentiles
At any rnto there can bo nothliij
amiss in keeping a vigilant lookou
with a view to the prevention of such i
But evan should such u scheme sue
coed and the Mormons win at the noxl
city election , nothing is moro certaii
than that their period of domination it
Utah ia about at an end. Ono mor
term of municipal power in Salt Laki
City would bo no real advantage ti
them. It could not add to their strength
or enable them to improve their stand
ing before the country. It migh
give them the opportunity t
got out on a llttlo bettor term
than they othorwlso would , but that i
all. They are doomed to go down before
fore an opposition that is irresistible
the hostility of sixty-five millions o
people to their system nnd their prm
ciplos , embodied In laws from whiol
there will bo no rotroitt , and as cortuii
to abldo nnd grow with the groivth o
population as did the hostility ngaina
slavery. And when Mormonism i
overthrown in Utah , it will hardly flni
a safe lodgment elsewhere on the Amor
lean continent. That , wo believe , wil
bo its last battlefield , and its fiito will hi
final. And the day ot this consumma
tion is undoubtedly not far oil.
Tins failure ot the United States t

tion is duo wholly to the poor management

least twenty times that amount. As i

The United States commissioner a
Paris was discouraged from dlvorllni

If the account thus given of the no
territory ia somewhat disappointing , i
view of the general impression that hn
obtained regarding it , It is manifest !
bettor that it should bo fairly given i

likely that the entire area will bo sol

there will doubtless bo something of

hand and n booming ward club , mounted and
uniformed , to take part In the ward display
carnival week. Wo never do things by
halve * in the Seventh , and wo won't do 11
this timo. Wo had the finest ward club dur
ing the last campaign , nnd wo'ro going to
keep up our reputation. "
William I. Korstoad , of the Ninth ware
sayi that there will bo a mounted club from
his ward in the night cavalcade which will
recall the days of chivalry. The prize ban
ner , ho asserts , will bo sufficient incnntivo tea
a display , but this will bo increased by a do-
slro to aid in a grand public event which
will co far toward giving visitors nn idea
that Omaha can got up n show worthy ot being -
Alllto Maul speaking of the Third ward ,
says that ho does not think his division of the
city will get the bounce , but it will leave
nothing undone to make n creditable display.
Louis Helmrod in the Second ward has no
fear that the mounted squadrons of his ward
are to be outdone by any competitors.
Cheering news like this comes from other
sources nnd to-morrow night nnd Mondny
will bo bacued up by the authorized resolu
tion ot the \ynrd organizations. The subject
will bo considered next Friday evening in
the Fifth ward.

Major Davis has sent the following lotto :
to Colonel Morrison :
CniOAOo , August 12,1880. To Colonel S.
H. Morrison , Senior Vice Commander , Com
manding Dcuartmont of Nebraska : Please
communlcato to the comrades assembled nt
the reunion ray sincercst regrets at being
unnblo to moot with them in the festivities
of this annual meeting. Detained from
active work by illness , I have not been idle
in the interests of our order. The question
of transportation I found immediately uoon
ray election was "tho biggest question on
earth , " so fnr as our Interests were concerned -
corned , and In the long weeks of my illness
I have not failed to keep stirring for the old
rntoof 1 cent per mile. But Aip to this time
I llud that the railroad combination wns too
strong , nud that the preccaont wo hnvo had
for the last five or sijc years of riding from
ocean to ocean at the rate of 1 cent per mile
is to bo broken. I huvo now no hope of nny
change. After duo consideration , and for
the interest of the order , I have taken
pleasure in selecting the Union Pacific nnd
Chicago , Milwaukee & St. Paul railroads ns
the best route for the headquarters train
which is to convoy the Nebraska delegation
to our national encampment at Milwaukee.
I have qvory confidence in tbo ability nud du-
rollon of our senior vice commander , and
commend him to the same loyal support you
have always given to me. Comrades , I may
never greet you again , but I desire to assure
you that the bast regards of my heart for the
order , the host thoughts of ray mind for Its
interests and tbo best work of my hands for
Its welfare will ho given to it while I live. I
greet you nil to-any In the kindest srirlt ol
the fraternity , charity nnd loynlty of our
oraor. God bless tbo old sixth corps , and
God bless the whole Grand Army of the Uo-
pubho. J. B. DAVIS ,

The idea that the board of public lands nnd

week to visit the state institutions seems to
nrnuso the boys. It seems tnnt the members
of the board have un eye to the reunion now
in progress , where favors can bo courtetl
