WHY E. XV. THOMAS WAS
t ELECTED A REGENT.
A friend of candor and upright
manhood gives us the following reas
ons why Mr. Thomas was defpated :
During the joint session for tho
eleotion of Regents, Church Howe
very pompously nominated Thomas,
of Brownville, to fill one of the va
cancies. The nomination by hlra
was poison to Thomas, and when they
came to voting It was evident, before
Howe'a name was called, that Thom
bb stood no show. Howe then dodg
ed and voted against Thomas, to be on
the winning side. He had urged
Fisher to vote for Thomas because he
was a Brownville man. Fisher did
so, but Howe "bolted." If Fisher
had nominated Thomas he could have
been elected, as there was a disposi
tion fcout a .fair Democrat on tho
Board. In fact, Senator Bear was
The fact Is, Howe is regarded useful
for only one thing. If any oue In or
out of the Legislature has any "dirt
to throw," Howe is employed to do
the work, and he does it well ; often,
however, getting as much on himself
nB he puts on others. But his em
ployers care not for that.
Shortly after the Senatorial contest
was settled by the election of Gov.
Paddock, the Brownville Granger
said some angry words concerning a
oitizen of this place, who Is charged
with having closed the door of the
caucus whloh resolved to elect Pad
dock, in the face of the Granger's
champion representative, thereby
leaving said champion out In the oold
politically speaking. Falls City
It was too bad that the Granger's
champion representative was left out
In the cold. It was the great desire
of his life to be Instrumental, to a
prominent degree In naming "the
coming man," and then just to think
that the crowd that did the naming
would not let him In closed the door
of the caucus refused utterly to tell
him anything about it, so that he was
In ignorance of the magnitude of that
flank movement until the whole thing
was fixed up. And even then, the
Paddook crowd- would not- let the
aforesaid "champion representative"
finish up the tail of the list of Pad
dock men, so being thu3 snubbed he
took a position flat, prone, below the
tall, by becoming a Paddook man just
at the instant he was- called on to
vote. Adage: Honesty,. even, iu pol
itics, 16 the beat policy.
A new paper ban recently been
started at Falld City called the Falls
City Press, edited by Frank Martin.
It Is Democratic in principle,, and
seems amply qualified to rehash the
stale old changes of "Csesariaui"
against President Grantr as the fol
lowing extract from the Press would
Can we come to any other conclu
sion than that, as Mr. Grant is a man
who revels in the turmoil and uproar
of war, who glories in strife and con
tention, who has every thing to gain
and nothing to lose by a contest of
arms, who is accused of desiring un
election for a third term as the first
step towards a throne by breaking
down the ouptom established by our
best presidents, who cares more for
the advancement of his own relations
than the welfare of the people, that
he d sires to keep the South In a state
of excitement and goad the southern
people to madness and desperation,
and If possible compel them to com
mit some act that can he tortured into
treason and rebellion eo that he can
again be elected on the ground of mil
itary necessity .
"Can we come to any other conclu
sion ?" No consistent candid reason
er could come to any such conclusion.
President Grant has never, elMier in
civil or military life, performed any
aot that would seem to lead to such a
conclusion, and take his civil and
military career altogeher it leads to a
conclusion entirely to the contrary of
the assumption of the Press. His
treatmeut-of prisoners during the-war
and at its close was the most merciful
and lenient everknown in the history
of any man or country. Ho has plead
with the ku-klux. and the white
leaguers and all the law breaking tur
bulent and disorderly elements of the
Southern States to cease plotting for
the overthrow of the government, to
disarm, disband and return to the
peaceful pursuits of life, without com
pelling him, in obedience to law, to
force them to doso. To-day he is ask
ing the Congress of the people to take
these southern perplexing questions
in baud, and to relieve their President
of so much responsibility and the ma
licious insults that are and will be
heaped upon him, however he may
do, by the partisan Democratic press
as excusers of white leagueism, and
the treason nests of the old rebellious
States. President Grant is a peace
loving citizen and no man ever occu
pied the Presidential ohalr who was
more humaue, more patriotic or more
devoted to the Interests of the whole
government. Andwe firmly believe
that because he is so he is so much
abused by the Democratic press from
the greatest to the least from New
York to Falls City.
SUPPOSED MURDER AT PHELPS.
Death or a Tonng Orphan Girl
The people of this violnlty were
shocked at the news last week, of the
inhuman treatment, torture and final
murder of a child at our neighboring
town of Phelps across the river. The
following, from the Rockport Journal
is the most complete and authentic
statement we have received in regard
to the horrible affair :
On Tuesday of this week a young
girl, an orphan, named Martha Ed
wards, aged fifteen years, who has for
some time past been living In the
family of Edward Cave, of Phelps
City, died suddenly under circum
stances which aroused the suspicion
of the neighbors, and about the time
the funeral was to take place the offi
cers of the law interposed and put astop
to further ceremonies until an inves
tigation could be had. 'Squire Rlck
ards, acting in the capacity of coroner,
ordered a jury impanelled, consisting
of the following persons : F. M.
Thompson, John H. Parker, J. N.
Prine. F. H. Farmer, John Lauter-
baugh and Henry Hopkins, and pro
ceeded to hold an inquest on the body
Drs. A. A. Tayman and Wra. Reeves,
of Phelps, made a post mortem ex
amination on Thursday, which, we
learn, resulted in finding that the
child had been the subject of most
heartless and Inhuman treatment, re
sulting in death. We also learn a
we go to press that the verdict of the
jury was in accordance with the above
fact that the ohlld died from mal
treatment at the hands of Edward
Cave and his wife.
The preliminary examination of
Cave and his wife took place before
'Squire Wm. H. White, of North Star,
yesterday, (Friday,) but with what
result we will not be able to announce
until next week.
There seems to be scarcely a doubt
existing In the minds of those famil
iar with the case but that the child
was brutally whipped to death, and
that for some time prior to her death
she had been grossly mistreated by
those who had proffered her the hos
pitalities of their house.
Tl'ton in his testimony said : "Mr.
Beeoher had told her over and over
again that it was not sinful; that it
was only an expression of love; that
love sometimes oonveyed its meaning
in a shaking of the hand, a kiss of
the lips, or sexual intercourse."
But after he was found out he In
agony and tears exclaimed "I wish
I were dead!" He did not so wish

ticed his peculiar Beecherlsm, but be

A DEAD AND DAJ8NBD MONOPOLY.
The failure of the sewing machine
monopolies to securea renewal of their
privileges to rob the poor women of
the land by proourlng an extension of
the patents is a matter for general re
joicing and congratulation. The fact
insures a great boon to those whom
this giant monopoly oppressed. 5Ts
That is so, and no monopoly of its
size needed more to be dead and

patents renewed will bring' down,

Lincoln, Feb. 14, '75.
The session is drawing to a close
and yet no very" Important matters
A bill has passed appropriating $50,
000 for the grasshopper sufferers. This
is a fearful precedent to establish. The
matter should have been thrown up
on the counties. While very many
very worthy people need aid badly,
this plan will "result in the biggest
swindle ever perpetrated upon the
State. Church Howe has begged or
bought his way on to the Committee
to purchase seed. Oh, ye Gods!
wont the thing be "worked up" now.
By-the-way, speaking of your Repre
sentative Howe, permit me to hand
you the inclosed, clipped from the
Lincoln correspondence in the Chlco
go Tribune which will show about the
estimation In which he is held hero:
"A bill has been introduced and
passed the House, and is waiting ac
tion in the Senate, appropriating $50,
000 to grasshopper sufferers to pur
chase seed. Church Howo, of Nema
ha, got up the bill and managed to
get himself named as one of the com
mittee to disburse this fund. Your
correspondent has heretofore refrain
ed from personal allusions to members
of the Legislature, and he must be
pardoned when he states that this

session. No one has confidence in

Republican, he votes with the Demo
crats every time. It was he who
moved that this Legislature adjourn
sine die the THIRTIETH day of Feb
This reminds 3'our correspondent of
another "episode," as Artemus Ward
would call it, which took place in the
House the other day. Two strangers
not residentsof theState, were sitting
beside each other in the lobby, when
one asked the other:
"Who is that member sitting near
the stove there, with his hair parted
in the middle, his feet cocked up on
the de3k, with a segar In his mouth,
puffing away while the House is in
session, and who bobs up and down
oftener than any other ten members;
who runs from one member to an
other, and from the House to the Sen
ate fifty times a day, thrusting his
nose into members faces with an un
wonted degree of impudance ? I have
never been so unfavorably impressed
with any human being before. If
God writes In people's faces he has
written on that man's front in unmls
table letters humbug."
"Why that's Churoh Howe, who
used to black boots in a one horse ho
tel In "Bosting;" who played out In
Wyoming Territory when Dr. Scott
sold peanuts, and who Is now run
ning the Grange dodge; was eleoted
as an independent and on the Sena
torial contest voted forNelse Patrick
until he found Paddock was going to
be elected, and although the caucus
would not let him in, nor allow him
to sign the Paddock 'pledge, he sud
denly became the most rampant Pad
dock man In 'the Legislature just
what he had worked for, Paddook was
his first choice. "Didn't I pray that
d, d fiue," saidlhe."
"Well! well!! That's Church Howe.
He is the smallest specimen of a Leg
islator ever I gazed upon. Who is
that little sallow-faced individual who
sits next to him, Peking postage
stamps ; obeying every crook of
Howe's finger; sneezing when Howe
takes snuff; observing every move
Howe makes ; as ohedient as a care
fully washed poodle ; hair nearly as
slick as Howe's?"
"That's Howe's shaddow ; Geo. B.
Moore, editor of the Granger at
Brownville; clerk of the committee

from contributions by the Senatorial

to Howe when he dies ; prays the
Lord, morning, noon and night to
grant him that great to him boon."

HOW COULD" IT BE SINFUL"?
Mr. Tiltou was asked what he meant
by stating before the Investigating
committee that to her motherMrs. Til
ton always maintained her innocence.
MrEverts objected to the" question,
but tho Judge allowed it to be answer
ed, and the witness replied :
She arways used to say that she was
not to be judged by her mother and
me, but by God. She believed that
God'would judge her tenderly. She"
said she loved God, and she did not
believe God would have permitted
her toenter into those relations if they
vere sinful, and she said particularly
that neither her mother nor I bad
made it the business of. our lives to
understand what was rightand wrong,
as Mr. Beecher did. That Mr. Beech
er was a clergyman. That he was a
great and holy man ; that he had re
peatedly assured her that their rela
tionship was not sinful, and Hhe did
not see how it could be sinful; that
he had told her that love justified all
things; that love had various expres
sions; that one expression was a shake
of the hand, another expression was
a kiss of the lips, auother expression
was sexual intercourse, and it made
very little difference what the expres
sion was. If that love was right. The
love itself made rightful or justified
all the various expressions of it, afrd
that Bhe believed, before God, that
her love for Mr. Beecher was right,
and his for her was right, and there
fore she did not' see how any of thfc
various expressions of it could be sin
ful. She said that she rested on
Beecher's authority for that; that ho
had told her so over and over again.
Mr. J. W. Brush has shown us a
letter from John Creason, who used
to live in this county, butnow of Hall

people of this precinct are suffeiiug
for food and clothing, and must have

He does not want help, now, himself,
but appeals to the charities of
the people In behalf of his.

ferers should apply to some relief or
ganization, for speedy help, or avail
themselves of the appropriation which
will certainly soon be made by the

Thinking that perhaps the proceed
ings of the sooiety might be of inter
est to some of your readers, I send
you the following report. The society
met last Thursday evening for their
third meeting, and was called to or
der by the President, J. G.Ewan.
1st. Song by the choir; led by Mr.
E. Hubbard. Mr. Hubbard has his
choir well drilled, and as a conse
quence their music is always well ten
dered. 2d. Miscellaneous essays.
Mr. L. M. Calvin read an essay on
profane swearing; which was replete
with good Ideas. Although Mr. Cal
vin directed his remarks principally
to the boys and young men, there are
some girls and young ladies that
would do well to profit by them
Mrs. J. G. Ewan read an essay on
slander. We have no hesitancy In
pronouncing Mrs. Ewan one of the
best writers in the society. Her es
says show a familiaiity with her sub
ject; are comprehensive and conciee.
Mr. Milo Elliot read an essayjon the
subject, "Is the Woman's Right's
Movement all wrong?" Altho' Mr.
Elliot was in favor of granting to wo
men most of the rights claimed, he
seemed to depreciate the character and
manners of those women engaged in
the cause. Mr. Elliot has the ability.
If properly cultivated, to make a good
The third order of exercises were
the answering of questions that had
been assigned to different Individuals
at the previous meetings.
The first subject was, "Why Is the
water higher in those gulfs and bays
which open toward the east than in
those which open to the west? Ans
wered by Mr. Chas. Blodgett. He
showed by surveys made at the Isth
muses of Darien and Suez, and by
other facts that It Is probably not true
that such is the case.
The next subject was "What other
industries, besides raising grain, can
farmers profitably engage In ?" Ans
wered by Mr. Clark Puffer. He prov
ed very clearlj' that sheep raising and
dairying could be made profitable.
At the conclusion of Mr. Puffer's re
marks a committee of thirteen were
appointed to devise means by which
those industries could be encouraged.
We failed to learn the names of all
of the committe, but they are among
the moat enterprising farmers, and
mean business. There were several
questions yet to be answered but for
want of time were laid over until the
next meeting. The society them ad
journed to meet in two weeks.
So far the sooiety has proved a suc
cess. The attendance has been large,
and there has already been developed
a spirit of investigation and a desire
for more general Information. We
think a society of this kind much bet
ter than a debating society.

The Republican City News says "a
Swede in the west of Harlan county
was thawing frozen potatoes by the
Are, when to his great astoulshment
a vast number of grasshoppers eges
were hatched from the heated earth
mixed with the potatoes. The neigh
bors were quite alarmed ; but It Is not
true that eggs were deposited in con
siderable numbers in tho Republican
Valley." It looks like pretty slim
fare to have to eat frozen potatoes,
and that the prospect for an early

her about it. He said ho was glad
that there wns one woman with
whom he could talk on the suject.
He asked if she thought Tilton could
be kept quiet. The other conv'prsa
tlon was in Juno, 1S73. when he ex
pressed fear that the letter of confess

TILTON COULDN'T BE 1 RUSTED.
He threatened to tako his life and
said there was no use of living any

would break out at any time with the
whole story. He spoke of his great
