wi Breakers Ahead,, .
At the Inst meeting of the city council pre
vious tr.ihoprcbcnt -writing, -action was hna
on tt.e Interests held by the city In the
Brownvllle, Ft. Kearney & Fnclflc Railroad
Oompauy. In short, the Mayor was author
ized to caHt the vote reprcsentlnR the SS6UO0O
stock held by the city, at the election for di
rectors to beheld In this city on tho 5th of
April next. He was furthermore directed to
enstthat vote lor the following gentlemen:
TL.W. Furnas, Ira Moore, J. Ij. McGce. John
Tu Carton, IL C. Lett, F. A. Tisdel, J. L-. Mc-
V,rc. think It fair to presume that this "tick
et", dmd been carefully gotten. up by Its
friends, andlt was pretty certainly ascer
tained that the County Commissioners
would vote for tlio same centlemen. That Is
to say, wo hare a little railroad ring, of
which a controlling number of the gentle
men on this ticket comprise the head, If not
the whole . ,
Wnrinuhf. if n. Hct of names could be pre
sented for public endorsement so open to ob
jection, we refrain, however, from any ln
vldnous personal comment. Many of the
facts rendering the most, prominent of these
gentlemen- bjectlonablearo as well known
to the public as to us. A board composed of
these gentlemen will fall to tako hold of the
public conlldence, and we venture to say that
their control of our railroad affairs will be
most unfortunate. To ns some of these par
ties are unobjectionable; but others are fa
tallyso to the entire community.
wodo not speakor oureelf bolely in this
matter. Wefecl it an unpleasant task; but
It Is a duty from which wo may shrink, but
dare not avoid. The City Council and Coun
tv Commissioners are, or should be entirely
bound by the will of those for whom they
hold in trnst, and will they dare say that
they bellove such adircctory will be satisfac
tory? The simple fact that a member of
each of these boldcs Is on the proposed direc
tory, stamps It at once as suspicious. While
these gentlemen may have been persuaded to
allow their names to thus appear, they
should know that to use their positions for
tiieir own aavanccinnufc win u.-iin..i uju
to their reputation for probity and square
dealing. . . , , ,
Tho County Commissioners have taken no
action In regard to the matter, and cannot
until their regular meeting, which takes
place on the same day as is appointed for the
election of thesedirectors. This point should
be attended to and some changes mode In our
present "slate." Brownville Democrat.
"Weliave yet to know of an instance
in which any great good to the public
grew out of a religious discussion, or
a personal newspaper controversy.
Hence, as a journalist, we are loth to
engage in the latter. There are times,
however, when "forbearance ceases to
bo a virtue." The article above is an
instance in which this adage is appli
cable. When a journalist so far for
gets himself as to publicly malign
such men as John McPherson, H.
C. Lett, John I. Carson, Ira
Moore, P. A. Tisdel and J. L.
ZSIcGee; men so well known, respec
ted and appreciated, as safe, sound,
upright, business men in a communi
ty where they have so long resided,
he makes au unpardonable mistake.
to use the mildest expression known
in the English language, to deiine
such an offence ; an offence for which
tho public will rightfully hold him
responsible. The enterprise, time,
labor and money of these men were
engaged in laying the foundation,
building up and developing the local
ity to whose liberality the author of
the above is indebted for his daily
bread, while he was engaged in
fighting to destroy the "land that
gave him birth." Such an accusation
from such a source, comes with a pe
culiar bad grace. This communi
ty want men with purer antecedents
than his, to charge impure motives to
such men as J. L. otfcGee and F. A.
Tisdel, "members of each of these
bodies" City Council and County
Commissioners. All these gentlemen
hat'e been residents of this communi
ty, ranging frQm ten to fifteen years,
and their whole history and every actyj
stamps the accusation or tins euitor as
a "falsehood of the deepest dye."
As far as the article in question may
rofer toourself, we simply reply, "shoo
"We strongly suspect, "based upon
reliable information," that the author
-of "Breaker's Ahead" would be pleas
ed with the position of Secretary of
.the Hailroad Board, when organized,
and that he has misgivings as to his
prospects with "this ticket," and
"that's what's the matter." If this be
true, the community will not award
him credit for great shrewdness in
"working up" his case.
To the public wo say, not one of
tho names mentioned were used in
the connection in which they appear,
at their suggestion, or even with their
Jznowlcdge, until after the action of
the City Council. Kot one of them
is desirous of filling the positions, and
will only do so, if at all, with the con
viction that a majority of the tax-payers
interested, wish it.
The first great object now is to or
ganize the company. The people of
this precinct and city have, with their
characteristic liberality, voted one
hundred and sixty thousand dollars
for this sole purpose. Let them not
be deceived and trifled with when
the time comes to organize. Those
who are the special champions of this
special mode of forwarding this enter
prise, must see to this, or be held re
sponsible for the consequences, in case
of a failure.
We repeat, let the company com
plete its organization. The present
prospeets of the.road are of the most
nattering character. It will be built
if the proper efibrt be made. Let not
the enterprise bo injured or retarded
by an over dose of its friends. Let
the stockholders act wisely and judi
ciously, by putting in a Board who
will be governed solely by a desire to
serve the interests of the tax-payers
and secure the road. If the gentle
men whose names are mentioned, are
not the men for the place, put in those
We hereby publicly announce our
-willingness, both as a journalist and
private citizen, to sustain any board4
that may be elected. The "rule or

This locality has been retarded in
Its progress and development by
"growlers" and "grumblers" long
enough, and it ishigh time that we get
rid of this failing. This Railroad en
terprise, if successful, will be the ma
king of us it is now our only salva
tion ; without it, we are worth noth
ing. Away with the idea that "Til
do-nothing if A. or B. has anything
to do with it." "C. and D. are going
to make money out of this, and JPU
not touch it." "Jdon't care any thing
about it, becanso It passes through E.
and F., rival towns, and will benefit
themaemuchasouTown." A way, we
say, with such childish notional. Theyj
nre unbecoming men. .. Let there be
unity of action ; let every shoulder be
put to the wheel. This is the only;
way to succeed. We have not popu
lation or means to permit divisions;
and dissentions. We need every dol
lar; every man. 'We want the road;
the people all want it, and we propose
to aid all in our power to obtain it.
U . The Trnuk Eoad. - -
As the season of year approaches
when work on Railroads ought, to
commence, there is naturally enough
great anxiety felt in regard to the
Trunk Railr.oad. It is the enterprise
in which the mass of people in this
county, and in fact along the whole
contemplated line, in tho State, feel
an abiding interest. It is tlie road, as
we have always contended, to confer
great benefits on the whole State.
None can feel a greater anxiety in its
welfare and ultimate construction
than ouraelf. We have devoted time
and menn to tho utmost of our abili
ty to build it. "We say to Its friends,
that no similar enterprise has met
with such violent and unceasing op
position from other Corporations, in
terested in its defeat. Not only from
such sources has it met with opposi
tion, but from localities in our own
State, and directly along its line,
where it ought to have nothing but
friends. We may at some future time
feel called upon to particularize as to
While its prospects for immediate
operations are not of the most flatter
ing character, we say to the public,
that the Board of Directors have done,
and are still doing all in their power
to hasten such a state of affairs as will
secure the road at no distant day. The
details of doings, all business men
will understand, are not proper mat
ters for publication, or even publicity.
As soon as a Kansas road is completed
up to our State line, the Trunk will be
heard from in a manner quite satis
factory to all interested. We will take
great pleasure in communicating all
information iu our possession, as to
its status and prospects to those who
may desire and will call on us at our
We see no chance of tax-payers be
ing swindled, however, if the road
should never be built. The company
has not called for a dollar from any
source thus far, other than from the
pockets of the corporators. They have
paid all outlays, and will continue to
do so until the road is built, or in pro
cess of actual construction.
Allow us to suggest that these en
terprises are ottener injured by too
much being said and done publicly,
than by silence.
The. City Election
Takes place on Monday next. It
will be seen that the member of the
Republican State Central Committee
for this county, Hon. J. S. Church,
has called a meeting for a city con
vention or caucus, to meet at the
Court House on baturaay evening
next. Let there be a full attendance,
and nominations made with an eye to
the interests of the city and success of
the party. Let all Avho feel an interest

Irownville Union School Close
The examination and closing exer
cises of the Brownville Union School
took place on Thursday and Friday of
last week. The School for tho past
terra has been in charge of Prof. Rich,
assisted by Misses Davison, John
son, Freeman, McNaughton and
Other engagements prevented us
from being present at all the exercises.
On Thursday we attended the exam
nation of classes in Rhetoric, Algebra
and History. The examination was
highly creditable to both Teachers and
Students. The Algebra class particu
larly so. In the Rhetoric class, the
young Misses especially, were deserv
ing of great praise for their proficien
cy and freedom and lady-like manner
in which they acquitted themselves.
On Friday forenoon theexamination
of the class in Arithmetic and Gram
mer took place. We were not pres

In the afternoon the exercises con
sisted of Declamations, Recitations,
Songs, Dialogues and Esseys. We
would like to particularize, but to do
justice to all, space forbids. Suffice it
to say, there was not a failure ; not a
single effort in the least discreditable ;
all was excellent; some mostmagni
ficient. Every body was pleased, and
the children as happy as larks.
Great credit is due the whole Board
of Teachers, and in saying this, we
but express the universal sentiments
of the patrons of the School. We are
glad to know that they will all con
tinue in the School for the next term.

will be found a letter from Hon. Jno.

will be seen that Mr. Taffe has" made
no naval appointments, and but one

infer, of Democratic antecedents. We
have paid no attention to the sparring

take the Senateand House one or two

the House by the Senate, so far in
