Ko "War Vpu Raili-oasls.
TVe hare been asked why wo take sides with
the anuria, la their war upon ralrosd. Oor re
ply U, that we did uot know the lanoera were
making war upon the railroad. We are anre
that we are not. We have aaid a great deal in
isvor of rallroadi, to encourage their building,
and to seenre County aid for them. Railroad
areanrcea.ity.and the public cannot well do
witbont them. But karate they are a necessity,
lt.does not follow that they ahonld be permitted
te become mster and oppreeeora of the people.
Partners area greater necessity than railroad,
and tnnat not be crnhd to the earth that railroad
may hum fortune. The aaying that the farm
en are the bone and aiucw of the land, i often
ned a Ip-trap; but It U neTerthele true that
they are the lwue aud ainew. When the crop
fail, when there i uo paying market for produee,
when the farming interest i in "V T depress
ed, every branch of bu.iae suffers. Whenever
the farmer ceaar to propr, and become cramp
ed, it i felt in every branch and channel of onli
ne. Even fine weather like tbepreeent.compell
ing the frmer to tay at bom for a few day to
nut in their crop, csnses general remark npon
the dullness of bnsines. Then, in the name of
rra.Kin.how can we better advance pnblic iutereat,
than by aaaiating the farmer in their fight for
right aud Justice, and for very existence!
The people of tbi County have paid to the
Bailroad running through it, $8,000 per mile for
.every mile in the County, and are now paying a
heavy tax for interest and ainking fnnd on that
amount and this i not over half the real valne
of the road. Tet the railroad, nuder a law
pawed at their initance, are paying tax on but
from $3,000 to $5,000 per mile only about half
the amount that the people have given to them!
Whea the people tbemaelvea bnild the railroad,
they have aome little right to protest againit ex
tortionate charges for the privilege of using
them. How eager the railroad are to have
lawa paueed for their beuefit; and bow quickly
they ciy oat againit encroachment npon their
rights and privileges, when it is proposed to reg
nlats their rates by. law. The railroads asked
.the Legislature of Kansas for a law permitting
them to pay taxes only npon their earning.
They had no doubt at all about the comtitution
ality and Jnatice ef anch a law. But as soon sa
the Legislature propose to regulate the rate of
fare and freight, they raise the cry of interference
with thole rirhta. No person appear ts doubt
KteMaut Taller Iauavauice C)amasy.
The Leavenworth Commercial has a second ed
itorial in reply to the Chief, and in vindication
of the Missouri Valley Inurance Company againit
onr stricture. We did not name any Insurance
Company in onr article, yet everybody treated it
at once. We nist emphatically y that we have
no grudge against the Missouri Valley Intnrsnce
Company, or any of its members. Wa Itelieve it
to be a good and reliable Company, and wish it
all prosperity. But we do object to ahystering
and skullduggery by that or any other Company.
We are still 'most strongly impressed with the
truth and Justice of our article. We Jrasr (for
we were there) that the Missonri Valley Ininr
ance Company, through some of its most promi
nent members, were active in lobbying for the
passage of the elephant known aa the Insurance
Law, and that they did it on account of certain
advantage which it wonhl give to the Company.
We are assured; (and we believe it, from the char
acter of onr informants, and from onr knowledge
of the waya of the concern,) that the same Com
pany wa the prime mover and power behind the
throne in aecuring the passage of the mortgage
exemption act as all its inrplu earning are in
vested in mortgage. Members of the Legisla
ture, who voted for the act, have aince taken in
surance agencies, and boast that now they can
invest their money free of taxes. And aa to the
act relating to Saving and Trust Companies, we
believe it is not denied that that Company got it
np. It made indecent haste to take advantage
of the law, aad ia the only Company that ha as
yet done so.
We believe the Ckief was the first paper to rail
attention to the fraud concealed in the last named
law, and to point out the parentage of the othrr
lawa apoken of. We are glad to aee that other
papers hare taken np the fight, and agree with
na in every essential particular. Auditor Wilder
pronounce the " debenture" business a fraud, aad
declares hi intention of not complying with it
whenever be can avoid it. The question will
naturally arise, bow did e many glariug win
dies get through the Legislature, and receive the
executive approval? The question is o easy to
answer, that we will let every one anwer it him
elf. Tea, we are in fsvorofencnuragingand building
up home enterprise and home companies; but we
are not in favor of home companies smuggling
little grabs, gouges snd frauds through the Leg
islature, concesled in a lot of high-sounding chaff",
whereby those home companies may make money
and build tbemaelvea up by playing a confidence
game on the public.

from calling attrntion to the fact that the Ckief
has been fully vindicated in certain assertions
made during last Fall'a campaign. It will be re
membered that we asserted that Martiu B. Bowers
did not intend to remain a resident of Doniphan
County that be wanted the people of Doniphan
to elect him to the Legislature, but intended to
return to hi farm in Brown Connty, in the Spring.
Bowera replied, in a Card in the Republican, in
which he intimated that we lied, and called na a
carpet-bagger. He aaid he had rented his farm
to two colored men, and proposed to remaia in
White Cloud, and spend his money among tbe ereone "pcemuj u

Probably tbia statement of Pomeroy's inten

not, we have a notion that within one year'a
time, very many people in Kansas will have an
earnest desire to see "Old Pom.," "Old Subsidy,"
"Old Beans," the old "Land-Gobbler," the

spend bia menty there. Well, he was elected;
bnt toward the latter part of February, he di
rected his family to remove back on tbe farm
with a few traps, and to stay there until after tbe
first of March. They did so, and returned to
White Cloud about tbe 4th of March. This
Spring, when the Assessor went around, Bowers
declined to list his personal property in White
Clond, npon the ground that, on the first day of
March, hia family were living in Brown County;
and be also iaformed tbe Brown Connty Assessor
tbst he claimed his residence there, and should
lilt hi personal .property in Brown! He was at
Topeka, representing Donipban County in tbe
Legislature, from the middle of January until tbe
5th of March, yet claimed to be a resident of
Brown Conuty on tbe first of March! The Asses
sor considered the mstter, and finally required
Bower to give in hi property in Doniphan
Connty, which tbe latter did nnder protect, say
ins; that be should submit hi case to the County
Board. It remain to be teen whether be will do
so or not.

some tidings of bis fate. They learned nothing,
the eldest of the brothers, had a wife who was a
Spiritualist. The balance of the Benders called
her a medium, the neighbor a she devil. She
was frty-two, with iron-gray hair, ragged at
the ends and thin over the temples. Her eves
were steel-gray and hard. The light that came
from thrm was sinister and forbidding. She had
not a single prrpoasessiug featnrr. Her form,
angular and tall, seemed to lift itself np when
the Spiritual influences took possession ef it, and
to becoms not only gigantie in height, but snpvr

or iron, which tbey drove into the ground iu every
direction at tbe bottom at tbe pit, but nothing
further rewarded tbe search, and theycameaway
to examine the garden in tbe rear of tbe house,
marked iu tbe diagram,(C). After boring or prob

the spot marked (D), aud when it was withdrawn,
something that looked litte matter adhered to tbe
point. Shovel were set at once to work, aud in
a few niomeuta a corpse waa uncovered. It had
been bnried upon its face. The flesh had dropped
away from his legs. There was uo coffin, no whal

upon the body but aa old shirt, torn in places and
thick with damp and decay. The corpse was

HORRIBLE WORK WAS NUT YET COMPLETED.
The iron rod was sgsin nut in requisition, nntil
six more graves marked (E) were discovered, five
of which contained a corpse,! and the sixth, that
in the second row, (E) containing two, an old
man and a little girl. Some, were iu the last

butchered dead, the flickering and swirling torch

The manner in which they accomplished these
terrible deeds was this: nn the hnnse was posted

In tbe floor nesr tbe store was a trap door, two
feet square, which opens into a rude bole in the
ground, seven feet deep, six feet wide at the top,
and three feet at the bottom. The earth outside
of the house does not show any sign of excava

have been done by a right handed man.

have been killed within the last nine months, and
the skill shown in thia terrible work and the
neatness with which all traces of their crimes
were blotted ont, is the best evidence thst their
bloody work did not commence so recently. Sev

was iutense excitemeut all over the country and
a firm determination to ferret nut the parties en

state, for the arrest of the ass.issius. Nearly all

aud it is considered rrrtain that the little girl
was thrown alive into tbe grave of her father, as
no marks of violence can be found on the body.

Mr. L. E. Trenadrll wss the inventor of the
Truesdell bri Ige. He lived at Springfield, Mass,
at tne time ne secured nis patent, and put In
some bridges in the rast, mostly, it is said, for
carriage use. The only railway bridge lie is
known to have built, is one over the Chicojice
river, four miles north of the Spriugfield, fur the
Connecticut River railway. Ho was desirous of
introducing his invention in the West, and wrote
several times to Chicago asking contracts. The
attentiou of Mr. J. K. Thompson, now a member
of the board of public works, wss called to thein
ventinii. He was superintendent of tbe tmard at
the time, ami as an experiment, a short span was
tried eu the Wells street viaduct. Mr. Thooii
sonaays: "There was too little iron in it; it
wss a pretty bridge, but tbe engineers, after ex
aminining it a little while after it waa pot up,
pronounced it unsafe, and we had to put up ad
ditional stays. Tmesdell's principle was to lock
joint all bis supports. Hn clamped tbem with
cast iron. I would rather trnst bolts." Trneodell,
after some correspondence with western parties,
concluded to remove to Chicago, anil, came here
with his invention. He was anxiuns to dispose
of it, and exhibited his models to
MR. BOOMER, .
of the American bridge company, and others. Mr.
Boomer examined Truesdell' model, lint "took
ne stock" in it. He asked Truesdell, "Which side
updoes the thing go f" and the invertor put his
model nnder his arm and walked ont. Unbuilt
several bridges here, however, mostly small car
riage or foot bridges. He and bis brother moved
to Belvidrre, and after the break-down of their
bridge at Elgin, are said to have moved to Iowa.
The Truesdell bridge is not recognized in Vaxs's
bridge builder's manual, orin any standard wurks
on bridge engineering.
MR. N. S. BOUTON,
of the firm of X. 8. ltotiton i. Co., iron founders
and bridge builders, was visited by a reporter.
He said the Truesdell patent was a thorough fail
ure. Truesdell got his patent on the leek-joint
in his liar. Ejcb of them had a crook in tbecen
tre, and they locked together, and then the joint
was covered with a cast iron shoe. He used light
iron and too much cast iron, and the lock-joint
arrangement so weakened the iron that be lost a
'good deal of the strength which might otherwise
have been secured from vthat iron be Used.
a bridge builder of this city, say in relation to
the Truesdell bridge, that it is' built altogether
on a wrong principle. The iron is spread over
too ranch ground, and the bracing is very defec
tive. In the Truesdell bridge there are live tiers of
cord, which are, indeed, braced, but the bracing
material is bent at each intersection, so that the
anglei weaken the wire and render the structure
very liable to break when pressed by an unusual
weight. The middle tier is perfectly useless. Not
a bndge of this kind has pvei been built that did
not sag within a year. Troesdrll bridges have a
hail rrconl. Tho bridge at Klgiu gave nut ami mi
completely destroyed all confidence in Truesdell'e
patent that he could seciirn no more contract.-".
The. induct bridge at North Wells street, liefore
the fire, got w b.ullv out ofrhaw that thecitven-
giueer had to truss it up.
said that in the Truesdell bridge the braeri and
connections are of the same size from end to end,
whereas they should gradually increase in size
fmtu the centre to the ends. The failure of the
b.idge is attributable either to the weakness of
the cud braces or of the centre of the cord.

After all the heroic and pathetic incidents that
have been related in connection with the loss of
the steamer Atlantic, the most touching item of
news, that which has the most hemic and reassu
ring suggestions for the skeptic of human nature,
comes from the scene of that terrible disaster in
these five words, "few married men were saved."
The young men, the single men, the "foot loose,"
who had no ties to bind them, struck out selfishly
ior snore as soon as tuey realized the danger; m
thought on their part of rescuing woman or child,
but only saving themselves. Bnt "few married
men were saved." In other words, the married
men stayed with their wives and children, and
vainly struggling to save tbem, preferred to per
ish with them rather than to achieve safetv bv
It is well for the newspaper reader to pause a
moment and think of all that this simple fact
means. It is well for tbe oditor of,a daily news
paper to direct especial attention to it and feebly
endeavor to point ont its beautiful lesson. The
daily presa is almost necessarily a record of crime.
War, and ninrder, and rapine, and terrible acci
dents, caused by human recklessness and igno
rance, arj the warp, political, commercial aud
religious corruption of woof of the fabric which
it is compelled to spread out daily before its rea
der. There is danger that starting back n
palled from such a record tbe trailer will liegin
to believe iu the total depravity of tbe rare with
a sincerity mat even tke most rigid Calvinist
would not approve of. It i to correct tbi ten
dency, to guard against tbi danger, that we must
all of ns look at the otbersideof the picture wben
eterweean,andrealizethat there it atfll love, aud
faitb, and tenderness, and courage heating in the
great beart of bnrnanitv. desnite the crime and
corruption tbat seem so tearfully to uvrr rvad ita
surfac. Tbe race is still sound at the core, in ita
belief and practice of the best social and religion
relations. Sad and awful as waa tbe calamity
wlich snnkover five hundred san Is into eterni y
beside the dreadful Meagher rock, tbe loss is
really a gain, in that it afforded onnortnnitvfe
snch a glorious refutation of tbe pestilent and
preading Woodhnll doctrine that "marriage i
an effete institution," a Is to be found in Iheaimple
statement tbat "few married men were saved."
AGreatConvkniexce to Tkavklkkb. The
Baltimore & Ohio Railroad is net only entitledlo
be called "old reliable," but it is very progres
sive and enterprising in designing and carrying
out plans for the comfort snd convenience of ita
patron and the pnblic generally. The laat thing
w have heard of their doing is qnites master
stroke. They hare opened an office at No. 700
Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, which has some
novel arrangement attached, making it tbe most
complete and convenient railroad office In the
world. In tbe first place, as is nsnal in ticket of
fice in large cities, yon can buy tickets snd get
your bsggage cheeked for all principal points in
tbe country. Then, what is not nsnal, tbe trav
elers' waiting room ia transformed into a readine
room, where all tke leading newspapers of the
country may be fonnd fresh every day. Tbia will
be a great attraction to travelers. Again, as is
general in anch nfflces, telegrams can be sent to
all part of tbe country, bnt some striking novel
ties make tbia office excel any ether aa a place
fur those who want to communicate with others
at a distance in tbe city. Tbe lines of the "Lo
cal Telegraph Companynenter tbe office, and mes
sage can be seot to all part of tbe city. Then,
too, tbe "American District Telegraph" have al
ways at this office special messenger who are
prepared to re on errands of all kinds, at ay
hour of the day and night. These two last ar
nngements will make tbe Baltimore ct Ohio of
fice a great convenience to citizens aa well aa
traveler. Nothing so great as the plans and de
tail gi una ruilsoelpnl once Has as yet Deen
accoapliabed by any other railroad, and the Bal
