Io think there was no u eight to the attack

good law that Judge Scoll has eat forth
In his op'mlon. He Ins denied the writ and
thrown Ibo whole matter Into the city coun.
ell. Beyond the question of good or bad
law , I think the action Is ono thai Is timely
and necessary. Wo have had a ferry spec
tacle of stale Interference In municipal pol
itics presented to us recently. The right
to appoint a fire and police commission for
On.alin. was given to the state In order that
the lire and police departments of the city

and during the last few months we have had

sembled fruit growers , the students from the

and Farm Supervisor J. B. JacUscu of the
Institute for the Feeble Minded at Olcr -

Prof. P. W. Curd of the State university
opened Uio morning program with a talk on
the Question of apraylng fruit trees to keep
away moths , In which ho gave tie rcsultn
of a number of experiments with different
methods of epiu.yiig ! trees. Ho said that
kcroscno emulsion or tarla green are the two
preparations found to bo the most effective ,
but cautioned against too heavy i.a appllca-
tltci , which tends to Injure the folbgo of the
treea. In the course of his talk 1'rof. Card
culled attention to the result of the spraying
dene hy Younger & Co. of Gertavn. In this
Instance en orchard of 1,008 treea had been
sprayed at a total co.it of $20.85 , or ut a frac
tion o\cr 2 cents per tree , the experiments
be'tig successful In dlspcalng of the moths.

PAIIT OP PU13UC EDUCATION.
Dr. P. JI. Powell of Glenwood. la. , read
a iiapor on "Horticulture as a Branch of
Ptibllc Hdueatlon " He opened by compli
menting the people of Nebraska on tlio In
terest manifested In horticulture , and espe
cially cominenlol en the attendance of so
many young men nt this meeting. Ho be
lieved that a knowledge of .horticulture , as
well as other education , should be Imparted
to the younger generation , being an Im
portant 'branch ' of Industrial education.
Those who meio destined In later life to
vork with tholr brains should be taught In
early life to work with their hands , and the
fact was deplored that modern educational
a > atom tends tco much to turn out bookish
men , who lack In actual know ledge'of the
Industries. Children should be taught to
care for plants''and trees , to observe their
growth and to pay attention to the work
and experiments In jiortlculture. The public
schools should take up this branch as a
part of a practical education.
Dr. George li Miller , Hon. J. ( Sterling Mor
ton and ex-GoVernor Furnas being present
at the meeting , it was decided to adjourn
the balance of thd published program in
order that the , Idistinguished gentlomei
might be heard from.
I ) . ' . Miller was first called upon , and li
opening his remarks confessed that ho hac
uut a limited knowledge of horticulture , bu
tliat he might say ( Something on the bubjec
of forestry. HtPspoke of the early develop
ment of the state , when the \alley land was
the first taken up by the settlers , and when
It was doubtful whether either trees or
nutrklvo grasscn would grow on the uplands
Ho compaied the early condition of the
territory with its now wonderful develop
ment , and callpd attention to the good woih
done by Mr. Morton and ex-Governor Fur
nas In aiding the Interests of forestry and
Hon. J. Sterling 'Morton made a few re
marks and presented to the society some
letters and papers on grafting and other
questions of Interest to fruit growers.
Cx-Goveinor Turnao told of the organiza
tion of the society by about ten fruit grow
eis , Immediately after the holding of the
state fair at Nebraska City twenty-one
jears ago At that time the raising of apples
was regarded as the most Important part
of horticulture and he bello/ed that &uch
vva/i still the case. Ho commented on the
ofilcacy of spraying trees , and In regard to
lamago from rabbits gnawing the baik
'rom joung trceo he had found gooj results
from painting the tree trunks with oidlnary

carnival at the Transmlsslssippi Exposition
ic\t jear Ho also announced si iflcctlng to

ircpcoed carnival will bo discussed.
\V. P. Jenkins of Arcadia took up the snb-
ect of destruction of trees and plants by
abblts and suggested some plans for over
coming the trouble. Ho favored the use of
guns and dogs , but oven these means are
lot adequate. Rabbit-tight fences are cffecl-
vc , but are more expensive than meat farm
ers can afford. Mr Jenkins thought that If
ho state would pay a 2'Xj-ccnt ' bounty bojs
\ould bo encouraged to kill more rabbits nnd
hus help to protect both fruit trees and
crops. In the dlucusslon of this paper A. S.
jodfrey of Lincoln \-andered from the fiub-
ect far enough to attack our present game

RAISING SMALL FRUITS.
"Culture of Sn.oll Frulta" wan the subject
f a paper by J. W , Stevencm of North

o do with the necessary light and heat , but
very thing to do with moisture. Overpro-
uctlon is the mistake made by many. la
rrlgatlng , the soil should bo stirred often to
ecuro the best results. Small fruits , like
cgetablea occupy llttlo space and can easily

number of fruit Rrowers banded together can
always secure better shipping rates , coUl
storage facilities and , what Is quite as lru

Shortly after the election Itwas rumorcc
that the police Judge , who was a holdove

olllcc , In m.ikilng arrangements iwlth gam
tilers and otl or lawless characters , whereb
they were permitted to conduct their busl
ness by pay Ing regular stated fines to bin
\.lthout the formality of any trials. A
length the rumors took form In the filing o
a complaint by a number ot citizens wli
were knowing to his delinquencies , and giv
ing the names of witnesses who would sub
stantlato the charges. It became the dut
of the mayor and council to investigate th
charges and hear the evidence , and If fouiu
true , to declare the office vacant. They ac
cordlngly entereJ upon the Investigation. Th
police Judge appeared with council , Burr
Mason and Magoon , and after they had con
sumed auout five or six weeks in taking
testimony , the counsel for Judge Parson
begged that the case might be postponci
for a vreek's Mme. Ills wish was acceded
to , but before the time had arrived for the
final decision by the council , the counso
for the defendant had bocurcd from Judge
Brewer then United States circuit Judge IX )
this circuit , an injunction icstralnlng the
council from any further proceedlngb In the
case.The city council felt highly indignant a
the deception. They felt fraud had bcei
practiced upon them , and being thoroughly
convinced from the evidence already take :
that the charges were true , and satlsfiei
that Judge ( Brewer had been Imposed upoi
by false representations , and that a federa
courtt of equity had no jurisdiction to re
strain the city council In the performance o
a duty imposed upon it by law , and feel
ing that the ends of justice v.ould bo de
feated and Parsons bo allowed to servo QU
his term before a final decision could bo

vestigation , notwithstanding the Injunction
Accordingly , by unanimous vote , the office of
police Judge was declared vacant.
Ho refused to vacate , Whereupon the mayor
Instructed the chief of police to use all
necessary force to remove him. Ho was ac
cordingly forcibly ejected , and H. J. Whlt-
moro appointed In his place. Thh broughl
down the wrath of Judge Parsons on all
concerned , Ho Immediately filed 3ils afll-
davlt to these facts , whereupon a writ ol

They , accotdlngly , vvero lined up before
Judges Brewer and Dundy.
In vain did they seek to glvo reasons that
wore satisfactory to tbo Judges why they

appeared for the mayor and city council and
sought to show hy the evidence the good
standing and high character of the prisoners
ami that they did not act contemptuously ,
but In good faith. The showing availed
nothing. Judge Brewer , In a lengthy opin

enter'Into the permanent history of the state ,

non and JurisIo ! England and on tdo con-
Inent , showed the very great Importance that
wu.9 attached to It ut the line and which now
ecenu to bp again revived. It related la Iho
labcan corpus case which was fir at tried before -
fore Judge DiKidy at Omaha April SO , 1879 ,
entitled "United States ex rel Standing Bear
agalnot George Crook , a Drlgodlcr General of
the United Staten Army "
The OJse was brought by Mr , Tibbies. A.
J Popplelon end John L. Webster were the
attorneys for the Indians and G. L. Lambert-
icu for the government. H was based on the
'ourtounth ' and fifteenth amendments to the
constitution , which , In effect , declares that
nil persona born In the Ilm1 ( of the United
Slaten nro citizens thereof , and that no state
shall pifvi or enforce uny law * making a dis
tinction on account of race orcolor. .
Mr. Tibbies claimed that this covered nn
Indian , that an Indian therefore had n right to
appeal to the courts and could not be ar
rested or ImprUonnunt without duo process of
Inn * . If this principle * was cs'ubllfihed In
dian wars would be Impossible , for Instead ot
making war en a whole tribe ot Indians

force would bo used only to arrest the guilty
parties and they would bo tried nml pun
ished as oil other crlmhvtls , and would , In

The central finally resulted In the passage
