How the Lincoln team beat Omaha tw
games , oven on Us own grounds and will
Its own umpire , Is one of those things n
fellow can find out. In > esterday's game
anyway , the Lincoln team was only In It by
sulTrancc. Outbatted three to one , out
fielded and outplacd In every partlcuta
and detail , It seems strange that It couli
take a couple of games In the easy si vie
that marked their victories at the capital
Still , there are n great many funny things
connected with this great national sport
and It Is not the best team that wins always
by n Ions shot. If that was the case Lin
coin might as well put her quota of chain
plonshlp games on a sliver salver and present
sent them to Papa Hourko tomorrow before
leaving the city , because If the best team Is
to win , Omaha has a lead pipe on all future

leged contempt ot court , were released yes

of habeas corpus. Ills decision was that no
evidence had been adduetd on their hearing
to show that the publication made was not
true and accurate and they were afforded
no opportunity to submit testimony In Iho
case , but had been found gullly and sen
tenced on an er-parto showing. Judge Scott ,
who was in Perry , was notified , and tele
graphed orders to the sheriff to recommit
the editors. On the advice of attorneys the
sheriff decided to disregard the orders. The
citizens deemed It advisable to secrete

OUD , Neb , April 20. To Hie Editor of
The Hco : I ask Iho privilege of replying
to n letlcr In jour dally ot July 2 , 1893 , over
the signature- E. J. Couch , I doubt very
much If ono of your readers of Iho Couch
letter had the least suspicion that Its author
know from a lottcr In his possession lhat
II. P Maiden at the very carllot did not
expect to bo able to sec any stars at work
bcforo the end of July , 1S93 , I reasoned that
having accustomed my eyes lo looking at
the star covets all vvlnlcr and spring I
would bo able lo see them at work earlier
In this I was mistaken. The condition of
the atmosphere made It Impossible. As a
matter of fact , August nnd September of
1893 were not equal In clearness to the same
dales of 1S92. November of each year was
equal December of 1893 was boiler than
1892. Motions of a few wore visible as late
as January 10 , 1891 ,
The only point I gained from his visit ,
nnd oven that over a month after the pub
lication of his letter , was that the star
Arcturus had been named the planet Saturn
This Is how If occurredI had been de
scribing to W. W. Haskcll of the Ord Quiz
the motions of what I then supposed was a
planet and gave Its location. Ho looked
Into * the Scientific American and said It
must be Saturn. Both at that date would
bo nboul west northwest. The fact of them
being about forty degrees apart did not oc
cur to cither of us. If E J. Couch possesses
as much knowledge as he would have your
readers bellovo , he Knew when I pointed out
the position occupied by Jupiter , Mars and
Saturn thai the latter was Aicturus
His statement that I was going to glv
him some lessons In nstionomy with my
simple Instruments Is false. I just pointer
them out and casually remarked what
used them for At that time I had nol been
In his company len mlnules and supposed h
was an Inlt-llcctual giant. I soon found h
wns superfklnl , entirely void of depth
Except giving the name of ono star , to al
qiieslioiis he replied , "I don't know , " or " . '
never thought of It "
The possessor of an unquenchable thlrs
for knowledge would not have suggested
atler one hour's conversation that It was
time to go to bed If there had been any
vUlblf hope of acquiring knowledge Why
ho lalfce * the question of nationality or edu
cational merit Is best Known to himself I
was foieiffu to the queUlon. I will onlj
suggest , If ho will permit , that a true measure
of a nation's intelligence is Its per capita
earnings and not Its educational qualifica
tion. The former Is the dividend , the laller
the expenditure Wo have only to compare
with England to ascertain our true position
As an Englishman I feel proud of the
skill of my countrymen In peaLOfully dis
arming a would-be rival , but as an Ameri
can I object to being one of their victims
It was an Englishman that devised the
method for the purchase of silver with
United States treasury notes and gave our
people a currency without cost ; it was an
Ameilcan born that broke the neck of the
measure by llmlllng the amount to be pur
chased and adding the exception clause.
It was an Englishman who In December ,
1SS9 , Infoimed both J. G. DlalnC and Presi
dent Harrison that If silver was not re
stored republicans would bo hurled from
power , and the historian would falsify hl'-
tory by staling lhat the people of the
United States were in favor of free trade.
It was an Englishman who appealed to
President Harilson again In November , 1890 ,
suggesting that ho recommend In his mes
sage the removal of the purchase limit and
exception clause from the silver bill of the
previous July , and that If It was not done
the measure would fall.
As soon as President Harrison Issued the
Invitations to foielgn governments to enter
the monetary conference , It was an English
man who forwarded him tlio Information ;
the act itself was the strongest possible
evidence the silver question was not undei-
stood. I Additional 'Information ' was for
warded that ought to make such giant in
tellects as E. J. Couch ashamed to hoist
the flag of education every tlmo the wind
blows. People become tired of seeing it.
If It was only food , many Who are now
hungry would bo able to satisfy their hun
ger. If It was cash , the hand of the sheriff
could bo stayed.
But the quesllon at Issue Is , does the
scientific world possess a clear comprehen
sion of nature ? I answer , "No ! "
With the exception of our earth's diurnal
motion the Copornlcan system Is false.
Theio Us no star that does not rotate
within twenly seconds.
Naluro has been sludled wllhout scien
tific aid. A strip of wood and two nails on
the end ot my corncrlb have served for a
telescope ; a square and a compass , aided
by a fertile brain , have devised methods
for celestial measurements vvlthoul resortIng -
Ing to the use of logarithms , thus Insuring
gieater accuracy than Is possible by their
uso. I had not time to use thorn , hanco
the necessity of moro simple methods.
The slmllailt/j between stars and the
animal Kingdom Is almost perfect. Having
gained a elear comprehension of nature by
March 5 , 1891 , I soon afterwards hoi rawed
two works on astronomy , ono by Simon
NLVvcomb , L L. D. , and Edward T. Holdon ,
M A. , the other by Henry White Warren ,
It was refreshing to read the former In
particular , and note Iho couClentlous labor
bestowed upon the subject. The authors do
not oven Intimate Iho fact , but the evidence
in the work does , that through the pains
taking efforts of the bclontlflc world Iho
growth of our earth Is noted with a degree
of accuracy that Is astonishing. It Is owing
to deficient ejcslght , and not for want of
skill , that nature has been able to dccolvo
them so long
V/hy such extraordinary eyesight 1ms been
given to ono who , prior to March 5 , 1891 ,
never studied astronmlcal works , Is beyond
From the New comb work I found all dis
tances were based upon that of the sun.
The method by which the sun's distance
Is obtained I found In the work by Henry
White Warren , on page 69. If the moon
and sun were respectively visible nt the
angles given , the second base was short , or
our oarlh's mellon qulcl-er than the normal
by 1 27-150 seconds. In either case no base
for accurate measurements could bo ob
tained by that method.
The only correct method Is one-half
of the actual time the upper half of
the sun's disk Is above the ( Ink ! horizon ,
then divide by two Five hours , llfty-nlno
minutes , ono second , Is Iho unit of tlmo.
Twelve and one-half times the seml-dla-
mcler ot our earth Is the unit of distance ,
> r 50,000 miles. Subtract the unit of tlmo
From the actual tlmo for each plus Hocoiid ,
uld ll-15GVj miles to the unit ot distance ,
from the total subtract the distance from
Lho centci of our earth's axes to Us surface ,
and the remainder Is the distance from our
jarlh to the sun
Tim distance of the moon la obtained In
the Kamo way after first deducting half of
its dally motion. It Is from the moon our
ludcs and belles Inherit tholr folly. It 1ms
twelve ojea , with the merest shell for their
lUpport , because they are always loward the
; un. If we call Its shell hollow hemisphere
It Is only to convey the true Idea of Its op-
icaranco It has no axis The moan Is
ilways Iho lowest on the end of our earth's
ixls , that Is , nearest tlio sun 'Iho moon
s full on the end ot the jixls most dlttant
From the sun , Hence , In summer , north of
thn equator the moon Is low In summer
iouth of the equator the moon Is hlgn north
it the equator. The piano of our earth's
ixls In March and September Is horizontal ,
llreclly over the BUI , yet fractionally cast.
[ Is greatest Inclination north during our
mmtner Is about 23 decrees , the cover of
jur carlh so acting as to force the sun
nor on Its own axis about halt of u de-
; rct ) .
It depends on the age of the moon how far
t Is verticil Bouth ( A the equator during our
mmmer condition : * , being exactly reversed
when It Is summer south. From thli It will
be seen why the now moon comes up north
of the west line during our summer ) also
south of the west line during the summer
The moon life Is about twenty-nine days ,
cloven hours and fift-llvo minutes , If MO
call Us orbit 1,43(5 ( minutes four seconds and
divide It by the gain our earth makes during
a moon , namely its mlnules , the quotient Is
twelve and ono-Mxth , which , multiplied by
the distance from Iho center of our axis lethe
the face ot our globe , namely 4,000 miles ,
Rives us 4S.678. From this subtract 4,000
miles and we have the distance ot the moon
from our earth ns 11,078 ml'.cs.
The moon Is forced upward on the west
sldo ot our earth by the constant explosion
of the sun If It was a spheroid It would
rise too rapidly.
Now the sun has lo lift a column of air
equal to tin moon's diameter and thus Its
mellon Is retarded. Its OJPS being more denxu
than Us body and the latler so lUht that U-
position IB asjured. After It has attained Its
utmost elevation , what we commonly e.all 1M

BUFFALO , April 29. Montgomery Glbbs ,
a well Known lawyer , was shot on Delaware
avenue , near Bryant street , last evening
at 9 15 o'clock. Ho died Immediately after
his arrival at the general hospital. As > ot
there Is no clew to his assailant. The whole
affair Is shrouded In mvslery. As far aa
known to the police no ono was seen to flro
the shots , and those first to arrive on the
scene saw only a man lying on Iho side
walk wllh blood pouring from Ihrco wounds
ind no ono near al hand. The Idea of
suicide Is hardly probable. Mr. Glbbs was a
popular and well roptiled citizen nnd an
iblo member of his profession. IIo was un-
narried. Formerly he was a newspaper
nan , beginning his career on tlio Telegraph
mil completing It as city editor of the
lepublle , bo f of which papers are now
Icfunct. Ho wns about 35 years old.
The Glbbs mjstory still bailies the do.
ectlves , and no arrests have been made.
Nobody Is suspected. No weapon has been
ound The police have searched in vain
'or ' footprints or signs of an encounter.
Neither Is lliere knowledge or belief of any
jrudgo or enmity lov.ard Iho dead man.
I'ho assailant's purpose evidently was not

JIbbs died from a wound Inflicted by a
imall calibre revolver hold at short ran go
ind that three shots were heard In rapid
