The town of Rolla. Mo., was visited by

Judging from the vote iu this county
W. A. Atchion, of Neosho Falls, ha
received the highest vote for Judge of
this district for the unexpired term. We
believe it is a question yet to be decided

if there is 3Ir. Atchison will preside at
the next term ot court here which begins

Tun new Secretary of the Interior to
gether with Secretary Belknap, Generals
Sheridan and Crooke, had a long talk
with the President on the3d inst. in ref
erence to the practical workings of the
peace jwlicy among the Indians. Gens.
Sheridan and Crooke have a good knowl
edge of the Indians and are competent
to give advice on this subject.
Ik Richmond, Va. on the 3d inst. a
mm by the name of Morrison was arres

voters, and w. held to bail in the sum
of $5,000. In our town we have heard
that such thing have been done, and
instead of the matter being inquired
into and the guilty parties beingarrested
they are praised and called "good work
er" at an election .
Throughout the United States Re
publicans are rejoicing over the victories
achieved last Tuesday. Tint "tidal
ware" of last year has done the party
good rather than harm, and if it makes a
wise s3lection of candidates in the ap
proaching Presidential campaign it .will
surely rout it- old- enemies. Freedom,
equal rights and justice to all men; these
are the cardinal doctrines of the Jrty
the people endorse.
The appointment of the new Secretary
of the Interior has alarmed the friends of
the Indian "peace policy" and many of
them have personally called on President
Gmnt in its behalf. It is announced
that the President still has faith in this
policy and hopes to make it such a suc
cess that it will be permanently adopted
as the policy of the government. In the
West theSpeople are of the opinion that
the peace policy has increased instead of
diminishing Indian wars and border
troubles. If the policy is the true one
it needs a different set of men to mage it.
Last Saturday the people of Missouri
voted on their new constitution, and
contrary to expectation adopted jt. Not
withstanding the fact that both Repub
lican and Democratic journals had de
nounced it as containing unwise and
dangerous provisions the people manifes
ted but little interest in the matter and
bat very few of them took the trouiila to
go to the polls and vote. Dy their ac
tions the people of Missouri have un
doubtedly declared that they were satis
fied with their old constitution ; but the
Democratic party of that State decided
that they should have a new one
because the old one bad been framed by

used bis influence for the defeat of
Legate. The Republicans elected the
county ticket -and had a ratification
meeting on Wednesday evening which
was addressed by Gov. Osborn, Gen.
Sherry, J. F. Legate and others, and at
the close of the meeting a set of pream
bles and resolutions setting forth Col.

The result of the election last Tuesday
was favorable to the Republicans nearly
every where. In Massachusetts Gaston,
the present Democratic Governor was
defeated by Rice, the Republican nomi
nee, by some 5,090 majority ; and the Re
publicans elect thirty-one out of forty
Senators and all the Counselors.
In Pennsylvania, where the Democrats
like those of Ohio, declared in favor of
an increased currency, the Republicans
were victorious, electing their entire
State ticket by some 20,000 majority.
On account of the financial question the
contest in this Stale was a bitter one and
the result has been awaited with anxiety
throughout the country. All hail to the
Old Key Stone State.
In New York the Republicans have
made great gains, and our latest news

Wherever elections have been held
this year the result shows that the Re
publicans are laying aside personal
grievances and are preparing for the
grand Presidential campaign of the cen
tennial year. Already Maine, Ohio, Ne
braska, Pennsylvania, Minnesota, Wis
consin, Massachusetts and perhaps New
York, have protested against giving the
affairs of the government into the hands
ot the Democratic party.
At the late election in Wyandotte
county there was a greenback ticket in
the field, and the people there, as they
have done elsewhere, pronounced against
inflation. R. B. Taylor, ot the Wyan
dotte Gazette was the candidate on the
ticket for Representative. Mr. Taylor is
a good man, but the people served him
right for running on such a platform.
The late Republican victories were
made the more complete from the fact
that Ohio set a good example by repudi
ating the Democratic party and the doc
trines they promulgated, and the victory
in Ohio was in a great measure due to
the part taken in the campaign by Carl
Schurz. The Liberals, a? a party are
not large, but among their leaders are
numbered many of the ablest men of the
nation, and if the Republican party acts
wisely it will at its next national con
vention make such nominations as will
insure the support of these men. They
properly belong with the Republican
party, and the nomination of such a man
as Charles Francis Adams, of Massachu
setts, for President would secure their
hearty support and insure success. In
addition to Mr. Adams being an availa
ble man, no man in the nation is better
qualified for the position.
Bp.ioham Youkg is again in trouble.
Judge Boreman has recently rendered a
decision sustaining the action of a form
er court in granting alimony to Anna
Eliza Young during the progress of her
suit for a divorce. After giving a histo
ry of the case the court spoke as follows:
"The order in this case granting ali
mony, pendente lite, was not improperly
made, and stands unrevoked and not
obeyed, and I am asked to enforce it.
A court, in order to preserve its dignity,
self-respect and authority, cannot allow
its orders to be repudiated, disregarded.
or denied. It is therefore the judgment
of the court that the defendant be im
prisoned until the $9,503 and costs of
suit are paid, and released by the Court
In accordance with the above. Marshal
Maxwell arrested Brigham Young at the
lattcr's residence, where he now remains
in the custody of the Marshal.
The people of this county should feel
proud ot the selection of II. W. Talcott
as Judge of the 7th Judicial District,
and the emphatic endorsement he re
ceived at the polls on last Tuesday. Mr.
Talcott came to. Allen county in 1867
and has studioiously followed his pro
fession up till the time of his appoint
ment by Gov. Osborn to the position for
which he has just been elected, and
through these years of trials and adver
sities he has ever held to that principle
so much needed among all classes of
men, integrity; never betraying his
trust or failing to use all honorable
means for the success of his client. Po
litically be has always been a consistent
and ardent supporter of Republican
principles, ever ready to aid in their per
petuation. Last fall when Republicans
were timid and when few seemed willing
to openly espouse the cause, Mr. Tal
cott boldly took the stump and labored
for a Republican triumph. And we be
lieve that in the discharge of hi duties
as Judge his decisions and rulings will
be according to law and justice regardless
of the opinions of others. The over
whelming majority he has received Is an
endorsement of his manner of running
the courts, and we feel assured that he
will continue to give satisfaction and
that for the next four years the people of
this district will have their courts pre
sided over by a just Judge.
Ik the State of York the contest in
the late election has been close. The
Democrats had the advantage of Gor.
Tilden's reform measures and they wise
ly nominated their best men and put on
their ticket one of the leading Liberal
Republicansin the State, and they have
probably elected their ticket by a small
majority. The Republicans also put in
the field a ticket made up of good men.
In speaking of the two tickets the New
York Tribune, (Independent,) says:
The campaign in this State, will be
mcmerable for the excellence of the op
posing State tickets. We do not believe
a single serious personal objection to any
candidate on either ticket has been sus
tained. Certainlv men like Mr. Se
ward and Gen. Merritt deserve nothing
but honor and confidence.

was one in the highest degree ox:isperat
ing, so far as words and the press could
make it. Week after week he was guil
tv of unmeasured assaults in the columns
of his paper against one who though
prominent and wealthy waj but a private
citizen of the community. No element
of venom seemed lacking. His calumni
ating sheet was repeatedly thrust upon
the premises of the slandered man, till,
finally, the climax was reached in an ar
ticle most offensively dragging before the
public the victim's wife. In a moment
of overpowering anger the injured sought
redress of the injurer with the bullet.
His subsequent regrets and attempts to

chronicled. And now the law must have
We know not the demerits of the quar

we can prognosticate the punishment to

evident that no claim for "freedom of

due to the community that. anything

ink and paper together may under the
spurious pretense of "freedom of the
press" be allowed in the interest of a pri
vate difference, to attack and hold up to
ridicule and hatred another member of
the community, whatever the facts ot
the quarrel, is to maintain what is every
way injurious to good neighborhood, to
peace, order and the Interests ot the
whole community. For the party per
sistently hounded through the press there
is no adequate redress before the courts
of law, and in such case an occurrence
like that last March is not surprising,
much as it is to be lamented and con
demned. The true freedom of a resiion-
sible prea guards the public welfare, but
will not screen ami encourage private
and personal hostilities. Between the
vile malice of Carruth and the self-right
ing vengeance of his tormented victim,

The attitude which the Democracy has
placed itself in the fall elections is ludi
crous in the extreme. In tbe contests
it was all things to all men, and at the
close finds itself nothiug to nobody. In
Ohio and Pennsylvania where the de
pression of industry and disturbed con
dition of labor was supposed to be favor
able to inflation ot the currency, it was
for inflation. In New York, where re
forms were badly needed, and where it
was supposed specie payment and con
traction would be popular, it was for re'
form, contraction and specie payment,
In Wisconsin, where the graneer ele
ment was strong, it was granger. In Iowa
it was anti-monopely, and in Kansas,
where it was believed the people were
loaded down mith municipal indebted
ness, it proposed relief for them by repu
diation. The public is now entitled to ask what
does Democracy mean? What is its
policy 1 and what does it propose to do ?
It is without policv, without principles
and without defined objects, further than
the object or getting into office on any
pretense that may serve the purpose.
Everywhere, as was to be expected, it
has been repudiated, and at the close of
the fall campaigns finds itself in the
plight of the old man and son who went
to market with an ass. tried to pleae ev
erybody, pleased nobody and lost their
