WHITE CLOUD, KANSAS:
Tfioreday, : : : : : Febrtvtry 15, 1878.
The LeffUauare.
During the last week the Legislature has been
more earnestly st -work than daring the first half
o.'the session, and tbe Calendar baa been cleared
of s large number of bill. Moat of them bare
been of a-local nature, or of minor importance;
bnt there have bean aome of considerable gener
al Importance.
The liquor law baa bad much and. excited dia
" cuaalon, and finally paieed the Home, the Utter
part of the week. It underwent ao many amend
menta and recontiderationa, that W do not know
exactly In what ahapait did pss; and aa it U
uotyet through the Senate, we cannot aay that
it will become a law at all.
The Herd taw ha passed the Hon, It ptaees
the power in the hands of the County Comniis
aiooera to aay what animals ahall be permitted to
o at Urge. There seems to be a strong and
growing feeling in the State in favor of a herd
law.
A bill relative to taxes baa P" " Houe,
which exempts from taxation certain manufact
uring establishments. Iu the mauia to seenre the
investment of capital in Kausas, there is a dispo
aition to exempt property 'from taxation, leaving
the burden on the less wealthy classes. A few
simple amendments to our lawa would accomplish
the desired object, without special legislation in
favor of a few moneyed classes.
In appropriations, there is a general grab, aa
usual. The ruitentiary, tne university, ana tne
Normal School, hate already received what tbey
sled for; and this is all that can be given, out
aide of current expenses, and not increase the tax
levy. There seems to be disposition to avoid
an increased levy, and to make other institutions
wait another year for their grab.
The Aniiortionment will probably begin to fer
ment, this week. Every man has his own idea of
how the thing should be done, ana mere win ne
plenty of plans to choose from. There are ao
many interests ami candidates to satisfy, that it
will be hard work to complete this part of the
business. Some do not want to be in a District
with Leavenworth; others will not listen to be
ing placed with Douglas; and still others object
to Shawnee. All the small bore aspirants are op
posed to being placed in a District containing
many prominent men, lest their chances should
be lessened. Atchison is terrific against having
Leavenworth in the Northern District. We im
agine that there are others beside Atchison to
consult in the matter. A Northern District of
respectable shape cannot be formed without Leavenworth,-
and the people of Northern Kansas has
aa much feeling in common with Leavenworth as
with Atchison. (Thls arrangement might inter
fere with the calculations of some aspiring gen
tleman in Atchison, who expect to run tho entire
District if Leavenworth is kept out. The other
Counties in Northern Kansas are in favor of hav
ing a neutralizing force in the District, and
therefore want Leavenworth. Hitherto, no office
or place of honor or profit has been allowed to
get north of the Central Branch Hoad, except by
accident. The peoplo of Northern Kansas, while
they are friendly to Atchison, are somewhat tired
of this monopolizing business, and want some
thing occasionally to reach a little higher up
than the Central Branch Eoad, just for change.

Unpleasantness with England. The Eng
lish thought they had made a good thing by the
Washington Treaty; bnt finding that the United
States has got her where she lives, she has been
flaring up savagely, and threatening war. Bnt
late reports represent that the tone is modera
ting. The -people of the United States appear
rather to relish the idea of a war with England,
aa an event that would bring our domestic diffi
culties to a harmonious termination.
Z3 The Lawrence Standard retracts its charge
that Thomas II. MoonK, of this Connty, sold out,
last Winter, on the Senatorial question. Inas
much as the Standard got its information relative

equally innocent T Had not the Standard better

We received a note yesterday Boning from
Mr. Zook, of the Fleaaanton Observer, announcing
the death of Col. James Montgomery.
"He died at his home St a .o'clock p. m on
Wednesday, December 6, and.willbe buried at
his original claim, this, Thursday afternoon. Du
ring the past summer and antnmn'Col. Montgo
mery has been in "very ill-baltb. but with the
energy which marked his character, he fought
with disease, and has traveled from place to place
promulgating the religions doctrines he so thor
oughly Tielicvet Jo. The last time I saw him he
spoke hopefully of future Hru, and now be has
crossed the river, and another or' oqr heroes has
joined the army gone before."
CoL Montgomery, was acenstomed to travel
from que school district to another, speaking at
least every Snmlay, on religious subjects. He
belonged ton sect called Soul Sleepers, with
whose dogmas we are entirely unacquainted.
He wars natire'of Ohio, bad been a school
teacherand must have been fifty years old. He
lived n Missouri a few years before commlng to
Kansas. His name did. not become well known
until the fall of 1358, when he gained a notoriety,
as Car-.t. Montgomery, and the leader of less than
a hundred anti-slavery settlers in Linn County.
Tbey resisted the outrages of -the " pro-slavers''
(as Montgomery always called them) at borne,
and sometimes carried the war acrose the line,
and into the enemy's country. Some of the
"Jay hawkers," on one side, like the "Bushwack
ere," on tho other side, were thieves, bnt James
Montgomery was not. We believe he Tif al
ways and at all times a mjs'cT lienor, and no
more a "ftic" than any manjswbo tries to
regnlate his life by Vae golden rule.
V7e first met him in El wood, Doniphan County,
twelve years ago this month. Tbos. Wentwortb
Higginsonaud Richard J. Hinton believed that
Hazlit and Stevens two of John Brown's men,
could be rescued from the jail at Harper's Ferry.
Brown had been hung on the 2nd of December,
and bis two brave companions were soon to suffer
the same fate. Their rescue was left to Mont
gomery. He came to Elwood with four or five
of his most trustworthy men, and with arms.
The Hannibal and St. Joseph was the only rail
road across 'Missouri aud afforded the only ave
nue by which such men could safely travel through
that State. Montgomery assumed some other
name, which we have now forgotten, and be re
mained wun us several aays. We bad a good
chance to study the man, and he was worth studying.
f hey went on as far as Ilarrisburg, where they
met their Eastern friends. The expedition failed
there, or on the journey south, on account of tbe
depth of the snow. The men could have been
taken from the jail, but it did not seem probable
that they could theu be concealed or got out of
ine way. ine leading actors in mis ouair will
doubtless, at some time, publish its details.
At the beginning of the war, Montgomery be
came Colonel of the Third Kansas. e think be
was the first of our Colonels w bo released and
emplo ed slave. He told us that he bad over
come the army regulations by making negroes
teamsters, and this then seemed to him and to us
a great anti-slavery v ictoy.
When negro regiments were organized, Mont
gomery was called to South Coralhia to co-operate
with General Dai id Hunter. His friend Higgin
sou, named above, and also a preacher, was made
Colonel of the first colored regiment there, and
Montgomery of another. Neither had mmh
omMirtuuity to make military reputations, but
they did a far greater work in teaching their sol
diers that a white man could be a gentleman and
aud true follower of Christ.
The life of this man will some day be fitly told.
He has left a good name, a bright example of
manliness, honor and truth, and be has gone for-

It is fortunate, sava h ilk. .. r.r
that the voluminous preamble to Mr. Sumner's
one-term amendment cannot in any event be em
bodied in tbe constitution else all the text books
with that venerable document would be inordi
nately expanded. What Tom Benton called a
stump speech in the belly of a resolution was
nothing compared with this historical composition
in the heart of a preamble. For tbe whole prop
osition we mora a substitute; shorter and more to
tbe point, as fallows:
"Whereas, the American people have re-elected
such Presidents as Washington. Jefferson, Madi
son, Monroe, Jackson and Lincoln, and re-elected
noneof the less worthy Chief Magistrates, refusing
all bnt one or two of them even a, renoinination,
thus showing'just discrimination and reasonable
sagacity; and.
Whereas, .if the ambition for re-election ani
mates a President, he can do nothing so well cal
culated to accomplish that object as to pnrsne the
high, honorable and righteous course which will
commend him to the confidence and approval of
the people, thus supplying an" inducement to good
conduct instead of misconduct and abuse of trust;
and.
Whereas, the argument for limitation of eligi
bility to one term proceeds upon' tbe assumption,
first, that the President will rely for re-election
upon the office holders ; second, that.tbe fifty or
hundred thousand office holders are more potent
than the six millions of voters ; and third, that
bad conduct will serve him bettor than cooil
argument absurd in its reasoning and preposter
ous is Us claims ;and, '
Whereas, experience has taught that there may
be exigencies ben it' is' not onlv desirable but
important to re-elect a President, as in tbe case of
iAncoin, aud it is rediculons lor a free and Intelli
gent people to bind themselves that tbey will un
der no circumstances choose for a second term a
"statesman whom tbey deemed worthy of one;
therefore,
Besolved, That tbe one term principle is illogi
cal in reasoning, unsupported by history, unfound
ed in facts, worthy ouly of the week who fear to
trust themselves, and unworthy of a creat. free.
virtuous and intelligent people who are capableof.
sen government, ana wuo ougnt to ne as well

as' to judge at any time whether they desire an

The Electoral Tote.
During tbe year just closed elections of sufficient
importsnee to determine the general political
complexion of the Toting population have been
held in twenty four of the States of the Union.
Of these States seventeen pronounced in favor of
the Republican party, and seven for tbe Demo
cratic. In 1870 the remaining thirteen States all
held general elections, excepting Georgia, which
voted for United States Congresmen alone, includ
ing Georgia, eight of tbe 1070 elections were dev
tenuiueu in fat or of the Democracy, and fit e for
ns.
These results, although not, of course, controll
ing tbe coming election for President, yet are suf
ficiently indicative of the political tendencies of
the country to afford valuable data fur work and
calculation.
Admitting to the Demecratic party the electo
ral vote of every State carried by them duringtwo
years past, the ballot of the Electoral College
would be as follows:
Republican. Totes. Democratic Totes.

tlT Some of the Eastern folks are again agita
ting the question of acknowledging God in the
Constitution. As He is not recognized by those
who make the laws, it is thought that He is en
titled to some consideration in this Government.
But if it wero done, the " Passivists " would raise
a bowl about it, and try to prove that be was a
relative of Grant's!

Kaixoch's paper, the Kama Spirit, an 6-page

mainly to Agriculture and home affiaira. Pub

to be two of tho hardest things in the world; but
KAliocn is likely to make a success of both.
The Delaware WtaipplBg-Post-COH-grcMiaaH
Biggs Corrected.
In a recent speech of our .comrressmnn. sir.
B'gg"i w" n raise as many peaches per acre
as the next man, and doesu't get frightened if the
marcel is a nine uun, made a very serious error.
He assured thehouse that: "Sofarasthe State of
Delaware is concerned, and esneciallv ns reran!
tbe whipping-post, that is an instution which we
ourselves to-day arc proud of. It has only been
established fur felons, and scoundrels, and thieves
and robbers; and to the glory of the State be it
said, that no man bos been canght back at it a
second time after he has been once properly
whaled."
Now, the fact is, that it is a common thing fur
a man to be vt hipped more than once. At a re
cent session of court, one Isitton was whipped
for larceny, who had been lashed at the same pust
by tbeucat-o-nino-taiks" not less than twice or
thrice previously. Lutton said he had ceased to
care for the punishment, and he had evidently
lost all sense of bumilitation or shame. We un
dertake to say that if any earful examination is
made of the court records, and the sheriff's re
cords (if they keep any), that it will be found at
least une-tiftli, if not one-fourth, of the whippings
annually, are inflicted on persons who had been
so punished previously. Ko statistic of rn'm
are collected or published iu the State. Nobody
knows the precise facts or figures, but the friends
of the lash, tbe admirers of the whippiug-post,
(among whom we grieve to see a humane and
civlizcd gentleman like Mr. Biggs), have long
made the bold and unfounded claim that people
were never "whaled twice." It is time this as
sumption were exploded, aud we h&ir takn nwi.
siou to do so. The statement is not true, and the
records will show its falsity! We say again, that
though the last and the"convict's jacket" system
have the effect of driving many ol our criminals
into other States, many do come back to the whipping-post
to be lashed a second time, and even
ufteuer.

t7ij at that place, says:
Wo have challenged the surrounding conntrv
and all that joins it, to produce an individual,
man or brute, that can devdur more eggs at a
sitting, than one of our worthy citizens. A few
evenings since, said citizen was bantered by a
countryman to eat eggs with him. They employ
ed a knight of St. Crispin to fry them, and the
countryman cried enonghP at thirty-nine; the
citizen called for'mnro at forty-two, but couldn't

Your men are no egg eaters at all, we know a
man in Ohio, who eat six dozen bard boiled eggs
at one sitting, and one dozen of them were goose
eggs, then he eat other things along with them.

How the Great Pictare was Saved.
To tie Editor of ike Chicago Tribune:
Sir Manyreports have been circulated through
out the press in regard to the fate of Kotheiuel's
picture, but tbey nave ail been so foreign, one to
the other, that, as yet, little liclit has been thrown
upon the subject, aud the rmbiic is undecided an
to wnetnerit is saveu atall. lam a ware that yuu
have not room in your columns for a long story,
so I will state the facts in a few words as possible.
The picture is safe and in my possession, audi am
now waiting to meet Butbermel. I superintend
ed the whole matter, and took e ery precaution
to have the picture removed without injury, and
would add that the picture was not cut from tbe
stretcher, neither torn into strips and carried from
tbe building, as have been published in rome oth
er papers, but was carefully rolled up and carried
from the building to tbe lake shore, n here I guard
ed it, at tbe peril of my life, from the cinders and
plundering mobs; cohering my face and hands
with wet clothes, to .protect myself from being
overcome uy tne neat, ine tailing ot tne cinders
was terrible. Tbe drapery wrapped around the
picture to protect it waseutirel v consumed bv the
tire, caused by falling cinders. I am happy to in
form yon that the picture received no injury at all
except a small rent in tbe canvass, which can be
easily repaired.
I also rejoice in in tbe possession of all other
pictures in the Academy of design gallery that
were any account. Mr. W. H. Donning, with
whom I shared apart of my studio in tbe Acad
emy, stood by mo in this emergency from begin
ning to end ; and, while I guarded tbe large pic
ture on tbe lake shore, at tbe foot of Adams street,
he guarded tbe others, and between us we suc
ceeded in saving all the pictures ofsuy valne.

ed themselves, and a portion of which tbey have
used in carry ing elections aud bribing the legis
lature of thia State.
These figures, which we give upon the authori
ty of the writer referred to, may not be exactly
correct; yet no one doubts whether this Tonuv.
ny rascality presents one of iiemost monstrous
m,tanetC:pecnlation andswindliuz known in
the history of th World. Iu bold daring, ita in
atiaDle greediness, ita artful canning, ita corrup
tion of legislation and the ballot-box, ita persist
ent and determined iniquity, and ita fearful suc
cess leave no doubt as to tbe total depravity of
these Tammany robbers. Now that tbey have
been thoronghly defeated at tbe ballot-box let
tbem be hunted by the most vigilant and uncom
promising justice. The people should not be con
tented with simply driving them from political
power. Their ill-eotten millions should be re
stored to tbe city treasury; and then the vil
lains themselves should be punished to tbe ut
most extremity of the. Jsw. A system of laws
that contains no adequate remedy for such crimes
against the public would be little better than a
mere sham. This great uprising among tbe peo
ple is their solemn and" antbnratativ'e mandate
directing the officers of tbe law to bring these
rouuers to justice, irtney escape either by neg
ligence or legal technicalities the fact will be a
burning disgrace to New Tork. X I". Independ

Up-Hill Wobsu The great Anti-Grant combi
nation appears to be making very poor headway.
The men who were announced as its leaders, and
who were to give it ita chief claim to respectabil
ity, are one by one dropping out of its ranks and
disclaiming any connection with it. Senator
Trumbull, refuses to act the part assigned to bim
in the programme ; Senator Sumner, hesitates to
fire off bis big gun in the shape of a "one term"
amendment to the Constitution, and even Horace
Greeley, perhaps miffed at the subordinate part
which be was to be allowed to plav in tbe farce,
stigmatizes tbe whole combination as a "back
stairs" arrangement, with which be will have
nothing to do. The plan of the campaign, so far
as it has yet been made public, is so puerile that
it is no wonder any mau of reputation hesitates
to indorse it. And yet it is probaly as good a
plan as can be devised to accomplish a purpose
so little touirht by tbe irreut mniuu-a of th nmw
pie. It furnishes the best proof in the world of
iiii.i..iiaiii iuh uiumiiiu louen. urant,and
of tbe absurdity of any combination among Re
publicans to defeat his re-election. While con
fessing that the main strength of the combina
tion is to come from the Democratic party, the
sorebeaded Republicans hesitate to admit the
Democracy to an open alliance with them. That
the Democratic party should, for one moment,
countenance a programme that place tbem in
sneb a humiliating attitude, only shows thr
depth of degradation to which the ;iarty has
snuk. It they are to furnish all the fighting ma
terial why should tbey not have something to sav
in laying out the plan of the campaign f .V. T.

General Jackson was the first nre.M.nt ,
made partixan support of the administration one
of tbe reqnuits for appointments to office, and
every democratic newspaper aud all the demo
cratic statesmen and politicians sustained and ap
plauded that policy. Gov.Marcy said, "to the
victor belong the spoils." Who ever heard of a
democratic president appointing a republican to
office. Did Jackson I . Did Vau Buren ! Tyler
was a hermaphrodite politician, around whom

should have a law similar to the Missouri deed of
trust law to induce foreign capital to seek in

be amended ao as to allow debtors bnt l,000.

to gt t alipolitical shades in office,' and there
would be no harmony in tbe administration. It
would be a baJxl of eonfnsion, which would dis

Tom. McGehan is not likely to dwell in peace in
Hamilton. He was acquitted after several trials,
but the people of Hamilton are perfectly satisfied
of his guilt. Extraordinary pains were taken to fix
a jury for him. There are scoundrels who lurk
about court-houses in other counties than this of
Hamilton, whose trade is to prepare Juries. The
eternal vigilance of the people is the only safe
guard of justice. There is no reasonable doubt
that JlcUenan was one of thegangwho deliberate
ly murdered Thomas 8. Myers. There never was
a more dastardly murder committed. The theory
that Myers shot himself is foolishness. It never
would have been invented if -the defendent had
not been driven to desperation. Tbe gambling
den where the murder took place was crowded.
Some of those present must have seen the murder,
but they are afraid or ashamed to tell it. Many
believe that the murder of Myers was contrived to
conceal swindles in which some of the gambling
crowd hadpartalcen. They hold that Myers knew
too much for tbe comfort of some rings of rascals,
and, therefore, was trapped and murdered. Some
of the witnesses are afraid to tell what tLey know.
They have a guilty secrete of their own, and dare
not whisper. Then there is the gambler's honor,
of which we hear so much among tbe men of prey.
It ia a part of this code not to speak outside of
that which transpires In a gambling-bouse. If it
is a murder, why. so much the creater tbe obliga
tion not to talk. There had been a good deal of
ruinanism ana oiooasnea in Hamilton. A sheriff
who performed his dnty in banging a bloody
wretch, was regarded as a phenomeon. It seems
in that case a aneetion whether the mr of
criminals, wuo were organized tor mutual protec
tion, wonld be able to bully tbe law-abiding peo
ple. Yesterday, McGehan returned to Hamilton
acquitted, aud held a Christmas levee. Crowds
of his admirers hung about bis house. He was tbe
lion of the day. This incensed tbe people, and an
innamatory hand-bill was issued and in the even
ing a very orderly and impressive meetingof good
citizens waa held. McGehan wisely took flight in
time; and it will be well if he returns no more

To the Editor of the Rotton Pilot :
Dear Sir: Last week a deputation from that
aspiring village, New Tork, waited npon l'reti
drut Grant, to urge npon bim tbo dismissal of a
certain official counected witn tne Internal Rev
enue. They were a solemn looking set of men,
and meant business. After going through tbe
usnal ceremony of introduction, and shaking
bauds with his Excellency, one of their number
stepped a little in advance of the others, and ex-
j.iaiucu me; nys ana waereiores ot tne case, to
all of which General Grant listened with his usu
al imperturbable countenance, nor attempted to
interrupt the harrangne by word or sign. At
last the eloquent spokesman, red in the face with
his exertions, finished, quite ont of breath, and
never doubting bnt that the Executive decree
wonld be in accordance with the petition as set
forth.
"But, gentlemen,' remarked General Grant,
"after listening with attenjlou to what yon have
to say, I can really see no. just canse why the
man in Question should be removed ."
"Mr. President, have I failed to make it plain
that the fellow is an Irishman and a Catholic a
Roman Catholic, Mr. President i " was the excited
reply.
"I understand that," said the President, after
taking a few long draws at bia cigar; "but I
don't see what a man's religion or nationality
has to do with a faithful performance of his offi
cial duties! Gentlemen, had yon been with me
at Vicksbnrg, and ia the battles of the Wilder
ness, where rcgiBentr"sBd divisions, composed
almost entirely. Of Jrishi Catholic soldiers, were
fighting bravely, and railing dead and wounded
by hundreds and thousands ia defence of onr
canse, I won't suppose yon wsnld have urged
their discharge on the ground that they were
Irishmen and Catholics I Neither can I listen to
a proposal to tarn a faithful clerk ont of office
for such canse, particularly, gentlemen, when I
know that this same clerk saved his colors from
falling into the enemv'a bands at the risk of hi
life, on our march to Richmond in fact, I know
all about him, for he waajaas f aiy soldiers, aad
deserves well of his country.
It waa a pretty lonr snerrb for Preajdent Grant
to make he hasn't time for speech making; bat
it u evuieni nun an naa aome iioerai ideas about
the rights of conscience, and a soldierly apprecia
tion of bravery. .
That deputation wore very solemn couutensn
ces when tbey emerged from the White House.
This is the kind of weather tint makes the liv
ery and doctor's badness ;Td r. Those who start
out for a eleigh-due now-a-daye usually take a
buggy bong to ride home in, and ties teres, while
esme U very stable keepers employ a corps of men
nth thermometers on their hats to stand aroand
town and watch for aay change In the weather
that will necessitate the change of their roUing
stock from runners to wheel. The man that Is

Bbowslov ox Solthekx Loyal Claims. In
a letter published in the Knoxville (Tenn.) Chron
icle, Senator Bruwnlow says: "Already there
have been so many claims fraudulently gotten
through here, aud some of them of the most dis
loyal parties in tbe State, whose loyality has
boeu indorsed by ex-Federal officers and other
Union men, that the credit of our State is dam
aged, and the just claims of loyal men prejudiced.
From different parts of tbe State I am called up
on to indorse the loyalty of parties having claims
i nuose course aunng tne war I personally
know nothing. I sm asked to do this because
such parties have their loyalty indorsed by ex
Federal officers of high character, and include
men from different Northern States as well as
Tennessee. I have a" rule on this subject, from
which I have not departed slieethe war ended,
and which I shall adhere to in the future. It is,
not to indorse any man's loyalty unless I person
ally know him to hae been consistently an ene
my of the rebellion, from its beginning to its end
ing. Sofarasthe passage of special acts by Con-
(,.v auo fMjiiicub ui claims is concerneu,
Congress will proceed cautiously. The general
feeling is strong against tbe passage of such bills,
because of tbe frauds which ha e already been
perpetrated npon tbe Treasury by the passage of
these special acts. At the last session Congress,
to be relieved of all this special legislation, pass
ed a bill establishing a commission, whose head
quarters are in this city, to audit and rejiort up
on these Southern claims. This commission bas
appointed snb-commissions in all the eleven
States lately iu rebellion."

sufficient to establish the identity of the corpse
beyond the shsdow of a doubt:
" Colonel J. W. Howard, formerly political edi

in Peoria, on tbe charge of bigamy. He married
a Miss Anna Jordan, daughter of a lawyer at Ber

Trumbull with a prominent politician. The Sen
