Tho urtlclo in Monday's Journal
Booking to dofend Moshor wu tho most
absurd combination of guff and rot that
haa yot loon hillictod on tho puhliu In
connection with tho Moahor affulr. Kb
purpose wob bo apparent and ita men
dacity o conspicuous that tho Journal
committed an offonao against tho puhllo
in puhllflhlng it.
The timo for ploaa for poor Mr. Moah
or, tho mun who atolo 12,000,000 and re
mainod "nervy und uffahlo" whilo tho
lamentations of tho BUfforors hy his por
tidy flllod tho air, Is long sinco pant. The
puhllc wnnta no excuses for this tremen
dous scoundrel who wantonly ruined in
nocent pooplo and paralyzed tho ilnan
uial credit of ho town. Mosher has
dono infinitely moro harm to Lincoln
than all tho criminals' 'that havo ovbr
heon in this city, and it would ho more
appropriate for aomohody to writo, and
for tho Journal to publish, u plou for
the murderer of old Dob Woods, now in
tho state penitentiary, than to ask in
dulgence for tho rascal Mosher who
ought properly to ho serving a life' sen,
tone at hard labor.
There havo boon too many apologies
for tho Mosher crow from tho first.
Thoro havo boon apologies for Bon
Baker, tho United States district attor
noy, who early came within tho magic
influence of Moshor's hag of stolon
money, and who disgraced himself and
tho government ho represents, and out
raged justice and decency and right hy
his shameless subservience to tho hank
wrecking crew. Hakor has forovor
branded himself with infamy; ho is one
of tho men who hold back tho course of
law and justlco and protoctod Mosher
whilo innocent depositors wrung their
hands in impotent despair.
Thoro have heon apologies for Bunk
Examiner Grifritttf'who la a 'shameless
villain or a wttoden hoadod chuck, und
who ought to havo bcon Bummarily re
moved from office ono year ago.
And for Moshor, tho Monte Cristo,
tho stur scoundrel of them nil.
"X And for many others.
ylt is time for tho farco to cease.
Power apologies and excuses, und a
li.tlo decisive action looking toward u
'partial righting of tho great wrongs that
' havo been dono would ho fur moro ac
ceptable to tho pooplo of Lincoln und

Before tho bar of public opinion Bank
Examiner Griffith is adjudged an acces-

-say'nothlng'of the odlum'thaVattackes
to him for his shameless conduct in
other of his "hospital cases," und in tho
reawakening of public interest in tho
Capital National bank atfair -there is a
growing conviction that Griffith, occupy
ing as he did and does, a position of trust
and responsibility, was guilty of tho
most despicable and roprobonsiblo con
duct in allowing Mosher to plunder tho
Jbaok arid rob ithn pooplo at his own
Until Griffith is removed from office
one of the most shameful members of
the Mosher gang will remain unpunished,
tad there caa be so security that other
-banks under his care will not go tho way
of Hohh HoHtwick'H hunk uud Bonn
MohImt's hunk. '
