C. F. STEWART, Chairman. Mehemet Pasha, the new comman der of the Turkish armies, is said to be a German by birth. The latest word from Sitting Bull Is that he has concluded to remain un der British protection. The Lincoln .biwnaJ complains that the streets of that city are In "total darkness now of nights." An aged couple by the namo of Fitzgerald, at Hillsboro, Md., were murdered at home on the 8th inst. The news from Maine is that the election of Tuesday resulted in a Re publican victory by 8,000 to 10,000 in the State. Tho Workingmen of Baltimore have nominated Joseph Thompson, a blacksmith, now working at his trade, for Mayor. The convention of colored Masons which oocured at Chicago on tho 6th, adjourned to meet ut Cleveland Ohio, in May 1878. Rov. John K. Smith, of Boston, has been convicted of tho crime of forgery and sentonced to Ave years in the penitentiary. Tho legislature elect of California is strongly Democratic. The result will be a Democratic U. S. Senator in place of the present Republican Senator, Sargent. Ono of the Omaha papers boasts of a blue pig in that city, but the number of bluo men in tho metropolis since the reception of a little telegram from Gould, Is not noted. Frank Leslie baa made an assign ment of his printing and engraving establishments and bis various publi cations. His liabilities amount to $330,000. Arrangements have been made for tho continuation of his pub lications. Sitting Bull and his warriors have come back into Uncle Sam's domin ions. If that commission is anxious to interview Gen. 8. B. they might at present find him between Milk river nnd the Missouri at the foot of Little Rocky Mountains, about fifty miles form Ft. Belknap, So say6 a dispatch from Gen Miles. Brigham Young's will was read on the 3d lust., before his wives and children who could be- present. His estate 1b estimated at about $2,000,000, consisting principally of real estate. This is to be fairly aud equitably di vided betwoen his seventeen wives and forty-four children. The will ap peared to be satisfactory to all. Big Indian, Crazy Horse, when at tempting to escape from his guards on the night of the 5th was shot and kill ed, at Camp Robinson, Nebraska. It is said that he was a very influential 3'oung chief among tho Ogalalla "bucks ;" that he was a general fault finder and objector for his tribe, to everything proposed by the govern ment. This disposition and his pow er over his warriors, rendered him dangerous and mads a strict watch upon him neoeBsary. Hence the cas ualty that puts him of tho way will not bo a source of general regret. True to its instincts. thoBrownville Aivertisek also flies to the rescue of Bacon, the man who under cover of philanthropy and economy was mak ing a fat thing out of the state, for himself and family, as 8upt. of the Blind Asylum. Acnesato Times. "Prof." Williams, who was once principal of the Peru Normal school, now editor of tho Kenesaw Tirncs, and was "whooped" out of the former po sition for being an unmitigated old bore (is that the way to spell it ?) and fraud is tho author of the above. That's all the people around here need know to give it its true value. Tho Times is correct, in saying mat our defense of Prof. Bacon is truo to our Instincts. Probably "instincts" is iust the word, to some extent, for wo are impulsively led, and it over has been o, to take the side of the weak er, the unfortunate, the PPr; Hence, Prof. acon being a blind manayhbad an influence in IT "Snot' U "me I. pel us to unreasoning haste, in this case it Is not so, for our knowledge of tho matter, gathered from sources so much more reliable and trustworthy than the bare assertions of the unscru pulous editor of the Times, that our deliberate judgment tells us that our "instincts" have again served us truly, and led us not into shame and confusion. Letus, if you please. present another 11 hiRlrntlon tn the matter of "A. B and C." In their "3I.O0O each." A Invest bis S1.000 in a manufacturing establishment, B his In land, nnd C in a government bond. Is It just that A and B should be taxed on their Investment, and that C should not be taxed on his? As matters stand to-day, the In vestment of C Is far the preferable, and more remunerative of the three. If the Invest ment of A and B, by good management and profits, should Increase to S2.000 each In the course of time even as high as to "9.000" wouldn't thev bo taxed on tbeiucreased val uation 1 Anil wouldn't It be right and just, and but In keeping with the genius of our Institutions t Brownville Advertiser. This Is tho universal statement of the popblsm that debt is property. But suppose the government that Issues the bond collap ses and don't pay, where Is C's 31,000? And until it does pay, O has nothing but a prom ise to pay. Now, A and B gave actual prop erty for actual property, and there was no fictitious Increase of wealth made by the ex change. But If you tax C's bond you have simply doubled the tax on tho original 81,000, which Is all tho property Involved. But sup pose that C's bond was a contract to deliver him a four year old horse in twenty years from date, with a certain amount annually for Interest or use, in exchange for a four year old horse that the government had bought of him with this promise. The gov ernment afterwards trades this horse- to a citizen In exchange for something It needs, and it Is taxed, and C's paper horso, which Is still unborn, Is also taxed to tho same amount! Substituting dollars, which the government expects to get sometime in the future and pay to C, for the nnborn foal, does not change tho principle. To tax either is an absurdity. State Journal. The dodge that "the goTernment that issues the bond may collapse," j will not answer as a reply to the principle involved in this discussion. It is not even a fair supposable case is in no wise probable, .and scarcely possible. In such an event neither the investment of A, B and C would bo worth a fig, aud there would be nothing In reality to tax nothing to tax for no government to be support ed, or people, or property to be pro tected. Hence tbero is nothing in that point. The other point as to tho "four3Tear old horse," and "unborn foal," re minds us of the story of tho old maid who never had a child, nor a prospect of having one, but becamo fearfully exercised and alarnud for fear she might, and it would fall in the well and drown! The Journal further quotes, and re marks: The Advertiser says, "With theprlnciplo attempted to be Illustrated in the foregoing, we respectfully beg leave to disagree. The fact is, there is but three thousand In volved In the JournaVa Illustration, and that, under our system of taxation, ought to be taxable." The Advertiser concedes, In this last sentence, the exact point tho Journal was endeavoring to maUo. Then there is no difference between us. If the Journal concedes that the $1,000 eaoh of A, B and C ought to be taxed, that is all we contend for. A, B and C each have, .as we originally stated, $1,000 in cash. That, no one will dispute, should be taxed, under our Bystem of government. Now, ac cording to the Journal's theory, if A, B and C invest their capital, it thus becomes non-taxable. In this event, who pa3s tho tax to support govern ment? Where is the revenue to come from? The Journal Is not alone In claiming that no evidence of govern ment indebtedness is, or should be, taxable. The bulIionistB and "gold ringsters," which the Journal claims to have no more admiration for than we, hold that greenbacks and national bond currency are "promises to pay" evidences of government indebted ness, and therefore, like bonds, are not taxable. Concede all this, and wo ask then, and again, who pays the taxes? Who supports the govern ment? Is it the individuals with more ample means, and who have more for government to protect? Or, is it those of limited means, who do not, and cannot, own government bonds, or bold greenbacks? Does not the Journal know that now, in the matter of bonds, a very large propor tion of the ready money of the coun try Invests itself in governmentbonds a few days before the tax assessor calls, and in tercon verts itself back in to greenbacks, gold, or silver immedi otely after he Is gone? Thus a very large proportion of the real wealth of tho country totally evades taxation. If tho same was held good in the matter of greenbacks and national ourrency all evidences of govern ment indebtedness then all tho real wealth, nearly, of the land, would bo non-taxable! Surely, this is not in keeping with the epirit and genius of our government; that tho subjeot should aid in Its support in propor tion to ability, and protection afford ed. Wo repeat: it Is the principle involved we contend for, and argue to support. To A. Band C again. Itisassumed of course, that each of their invest ments are good. There can be noth ing safer In which to invest than In government promises to pay. The best financiers in this and ull other civilized countries, give Buch Invest ments preference, and at lower rates of Interest than any other. The Journalgoes on further through a whole column and a half, with a kind of "veto! presto!! ohange!!!" argument, to show that by reason of bonds not being taxable, they sold for more, and thus the people saved money by the operation ; and that if It were otherwise "the agricultural class would pay the principal part of unjust taxes, and not tho capitalist." We are not one of tho number who believes in such doctrine. The re verse Is too plain to bo seen by every intelligent mind. With some points made by the Journal in matters of taxation, we agree. In our own State tho system of revenue Is all wrong. Much taxa ble property Is taxed twice Eome three and four times, and a still great er proportion evades taxation entire ly. This condition of of affairs will continue to exist as long as exemp tions are provided for in our statutes. Tax all an Individual owns, be tha.t great or small, Is the only true sys tem. Then we will hear but little, If anything, ubout the "burthens of tax jallon." .. 1 The St. Louis Qlobe-Democrat gives' a lengthy account of a river 'monster seen on two or three different occas sions, below St. Louis. A part" of men saw it lying on a sand bar sun ning Itself. They 6hot at It several times, when as it took refuge in the water, it made a terrifying noise, something like a sea lion. The men measured the very distinct track it made where it rested on the sand, and it measured about seventy feet, and was as large around the body as a flour barrel. It had a head like a dog, six short clumsy looking legs formi dable olaws, and was web-footed. The O-D. has heard several stories, from "eye witnesses," about this huge Tep tile, which it believes to be reliable. We never said it "had some corrupt dealings with 'Boss Stout'" never said it "ever had anything to do with Stout" never said it had "even a personal acquaintance with him," as our readers very well know. Kene saw Times. The Times' miserable insinuations were understood precisely as they wore intended to be. But we nail ed its lie so energetically that It at tempts to extricate itself, and does so by simply denying that it ever said so, thus adding falsehood to falsehood. This Is as much as we wanted the Times to do acknowledge that It had lied in the first place, which It virtual ly does. The old sinner having made the above acknowledgments, we are content, and leave him to wrestle with bis violated conscience, and to lay awake of nights to hate himself. The hardest fought battle of the eas tern war since the battle of Plevna, was that of Lovatz. Tho Russians were victorious by overwhelming numbers, but the Turks made a most stubborn resistance, and stood their ground and fought hand to hand agalust great odds and when thoy must have known that the' could not repulse their enemy. They finally bad to retreat taking their artillery with them. It now turns out that Osman Pasha is neither Marshal BazIne.Clay Craw ford nor Jeremiah Jones. Tho Turk ish Minister at Washington furnishes tho following : In view of various accounts circu lating about the origin of Osman Pasha, the Turkish legation has the honor to inform the presB that the marshal of that name was born In As ia Minor, of Mussulman parents. Speaking for himself, Senator Alii son, of Iowa, says that he regrets that Governor Packard was not sustained in his rightful authority, but as the aotion of the President was final (mistake though it was,) he soes no reason why Republicans should quar rel over it. It is better, he thinks, for them to make friends, that they may not become food for the vultures of the Democratic party. An unconfirmed report says that Plevna has been taken by tho Rus sians, and that Osman Pasha has re treated. For several days the Rus sians have been olosing in on thecity , with about 100,000 soldiers, and that all attempts to reinforoe Osman Pasha had been thwarted. This being tho case it is probably true that the Turks have withdrawn. Tho Iowa papers are discussing the record of John P. Irish, Democratic candidate for Governor. Tho Des Moines Iicgistcr says: "His own words can bo produced to 6how that he was a meaner, a more slanderous, a more cowardly villlfier of tho Un ion cause, the Union soldier, and President Lincoln, than Henry Clay Dean ever was." At the annual Methodist Confer ence of Michigan, heldat Grand Rap ids on the 5th, the Rov. Weiglo was charged with "maladmlstration and immoral conduct," and Rev. David Eagle, Rev. David Wakefield and Rev. Martin V. Cook, were all oalled to answer the charge of adultery. An eleotion occurred In California last week for minor State officers and members of the legislature. Reports indioato that the Democrats will have a controling power in the legislature. And this in spite of the strengthening (!) infiuences of this hell-roaring Re publican administration. Justice Bradley in a letter to the Newark Advertiser, denies the Sun's charges throughout. He says he did not read or express an opiniou, and that there was no discussion. The eleotoral vote was decided honestly and free from political or other ex traneous considerations. Schuyler Colfax recently delivered his lecture on Abraham Linooln in Ottawa, 111. After tha lecture a pleasant reception was given the ex Vice President and he was presented with a cano from a stick that once formed a part of Lincoln's cabin. The "local" of the State Journal thus describes a Linooln oyster stew : "Once again tho happy time has come when the law allows tho restauranter to set before you a pint of milk with a little oyster taking a bath in it, and he oalls it a stew."' The Omaha Hepublican of the 9th says some very sensible and com mendable things the the Republicans of Douglas. It is to bo hoped that the leading Republicans of Omaha will second the efforts of the Bepub lican for harmony and union. Tho St. Joe Herald nominates Hen ry Ward Beecher as successor to Brigham Young. That's a good and pious suggestion. He would give general satisfaction without doubt. Governor Matthews, of West Vir ginia, has issued a proclamation an nouncing that Charleston received a majority of the votes cast for the lo cation of the state capital. Tho Best Policy. Just now if there is any one thing troubling this country more than an other it is financial plans. What the financial policy of the country main ly needs Is to be let alone. Business is reviving, confidence Is reviving, and will continue to do so if the able statesmen with plans In their pockets will let them alone. The word for the statesmen is "hands off." Indi anapolis Journal. There is more real good sound sen sible doctrine in the above than in any article we have eeen lately on the finance question. CRIMES A3D CASULTIES. A terrible explosion occurred in the Phecenix Park mine at Minersville, Pa., on the 0th. Several miners were seriously burned, some fatally. At Wapakenella, Ohio, on the night of the , a gang of burglars cap tured Myers, the county treasurer, on hia way home form a Catholic festi val, almost In the oenter of the town, gagged and carried him into an alley till midnight. Thenco took him to the court house, and by applying fire between his feet tortured him Into giving tho combination of the county safe. Forty thousand dollars were taken therefrom. Myers waa; discov ered next morning helpless and suf fering. The New York Union Trust Com pany was recently victimized to the tune of $34,000 by a forged check. The forgery has been traced to two clerks, one employed by the Com pany and the other in the N. Y. Life Insurance Company. Tho Catholio ohurch at Rogers Park Chicago, was burned on the Gth. The county buildings at Juncan, Dodge county, Wisconsin, were de stroyed by fire on tho Gth, and all the records were destroyed. At Memphis on tho 7th, Ed. Mur ray, a sporting man, in a drunken spree, was shot and killed by Jule Rosier, of St. Louis. F. W. Thomas, editor of the Phila delphia Free Press, died on the 7th inst., aged 70. A dispatch from Wilkesbarre, speaking of the strike of the miners, says there Is every reason to believe the worst features of Communism will soon crop out. The agricultural dis tricts are beginning to feel the effects of the lawless demands of bands of so called committees which are scatter ed through the country ; and wherev er their requests for provisions Is de nied, force is used. Barns and stook yards and collars are indiscriminately plundered, valuable cows are killed, and their hides left wiiere they were slaughtered. Itinerant peddlars are plundered of their packs, potato fields are invaded and their products car ried olf. Governor Hartranft has de termined to place a regiment of three months' men in the diturbed districts to co-operate with the regulars. . A Bohemian and his .wife- named Vondra, living near Iowa City, recent ly took poison and died. When found they were lying on the floor of their squalid hut locked in each others arms. Richard Jones, a colored gentleman at Indianapolis, was stabbed last week by Mr. Jolln Williams. It was all about a colored lady. Tho Views of Mr. Colfax. Schuj'ler Colfax's speech on the 'Hard Times Their Causa and Cure,' delivered at Beloit on the 5th instant, which uppeared in our columns yes terday, is one of great ability and can dor. He takes among other substan tially these positions : 1. The chief, though not tho only cause, for the panic of 1873, was the overbuilding of railroads, and the en ormous amount of money they with drew from other uses. v 2. That the cause of tho continued financial distress, after four years of stringency, and the retrenchment and eoonomies It compelled, is the 'con stant contraction in the volume of what was recognized a dozen years ago as legal tenders,' coupled with the conviction that what is yet to come at the date of resumption, next New Year's a year, is to affect the nation and its people more disastrously; and that 'the seventy million contraction in greenbacksand national bank notes since January, 1875, as proclaimed In official tables, has been almost akin in its effeots to that last straw that broke the overladen camel's back.' 3. That when tho greenback was first issued its 'promise to pay' meant either in gold or silver, or in a nation al bond of approximate to but not quite equal to coiu in value. He pro poses that we return to the old con tract, and asks, 'Why not now enact that on the date fixed for re sumption the government will, at its option, redeem all green backs that may be presented in gold or silver, or a national bond, whose rate of interest shall render it approximate to coin in value?' But he adds, 'I do not believe in any con traction of our greenbacks ; certainly not till other legal money shall ade quately fill their place,' and lio sug gests that the greenbacks redeemed shall be paid out again in the redemp tion of other bonds. The manifest conclusion to be drawn from his address is that the govern ment In contracting thecurrenoy and diminishing the medium In whioh debts contracted can be paid must nec essarily be unjust to the debtor class. It is those who contracted debts when currency was abundant, and are oalled upon to pay when it has been greatly contracted, and consequently enhanc ed in value In comparison with other property, that have tho right to com plain and demand relief from Con gress. Mr. Colfax makes this very plain, and his speeoh Is one that do serves careful consideration. Inter Ocean. State Fair Jfotes. We glean the following itemB from tbo State Journal: Ex-Governor Furnas, in a private letter to H. K. Honeywell, manager of the State Fair, says : "Remember, we want all of the north wing of Flo ral Hall for fruit. I intend to make the largest fruit show ever shown in the west." Mr. Honeywell is now making ar rangements to have a twelve horse power engine in Machinery Hall dur ing State Jbalr week. Tho amphitheatre has been enlarg ed and now will seat comfortably about 300 people. BogardtJs, the champion wing; shot of the world, will spend three days at the fair during tho shooting tourna ment, and will take part in the exer cises. The three days shooting tournament at the State Fair will be an attractive feature. It is estimated that 1,500 wild pigeons will bite tho dust during that time. Manager Honeywell has secured 12 000 plates, upon which will be shown Nebraska fruits, grown inRiohardson Nemaha, Otoe, Cass, Sarpy, Douglas, Wbashington, Johnson, Lancaster and other counties. Three herds of thoroughbred cattle, from Wisconsin, Iowa and Kansas, have already been entered. An amphitheatre is to be built at the fair grounds, for the purpose of giving tlie people an opportunity of seeing the horses and cattle as they are brought before the awarding com mittees. Manager Honeywell and Superin tendent Burks are deserving of the thanks of this community for the manner in which they are looking af ter State Fair matters. Meeting of Mexican Veterans. CniCAGO, September5. The fourth annual reunion of Mexican veterans of Illinois, opened here to-day, some seventy-five being present, Hand shakings were indulged in, reminis cences exchanged and general jollifi cation was tho order of tho day. C. R. Otis, of Chicago, presided and intro duced the president, Col. Ferris For man, who made a brief address recall ing past pleasures and triumphs and favored pensions for all survivors. Col. P. L. Turnley being appointed marshal for the day, made an address touching pensions, which was warm ly applauded. The veterans present are 49 to 60 years old. To-morrow will be the business day of the meeting. Chicago, September 6. The Illin ois Mexican war veterans held their second day's session of the annual re union at the Grand Pacific hotel. Tho business was chiefly with regard to securing pensions, fpr which purpose a committee was appointed to labor with congress some time ago, but it not having reported waa discharged and other committees wereappolnted to work less directly but more forcibly. Dinner was bad at 2 :30 and numerous Mexican dishes wero served. In the afternoon the name of the association was changed to "The Veterans of the Mexican, Florida and Black Hawk Wars," the latter veterans have been admitted to fellowship. The following offlcfirs were elected : Col. Ferris Forman, President ; Col. P. T. Turnley. flrRfc vice president; Capt. John VV. Hartly, seoretary. Delegates were chosen to the national convention in Baltimore next Febru ary. Lieut. Gov. Sherman, Judge Dickey and others made speeches and the convention adjourned. m i The following facts, recalled by Mr. Stoughton in his artiolo in the jtforth American lievieto, are of a kind to jot down and remember : "Tho register ed colored vote of Louisiana,'' says Mr. Stoughton, "on the day of the election in November last, was 115, 310, to 92,990 white. In forty of the fifty-seven parishes of tho State, where no serious intimidation prevailed, in cluding that of Orleans, which was largely Democratic the majority of Republican votes actually cast was 6, 097. Tho remaining seventeen par ishes contained 20.323 registered col ored voters, and 10,253 white tbo for mer, like those In the forty parishes, being almost exclusively Republican. Judge Black says the majority of the votes aotually polled by the Democrat ic party within the State is admitted to have been 7,639. Assuming this to be so, the Democrats must have suc ceeded, with 16,253 white votes, in get ting a majority over 20,323 colored, of 13,736. Does he believe this to have been possible, in face of tho Republi can majority of 6,097 in forty parish es V" It is the logio of these facts and fig ures, thus plainly presented, whicn has never been met or answered. The Republican majority In forty parishes is undisputed. The Republican supe riority in numbers in the other seven teen is equally undented. There was no natural or legitimate reason why the division in tho latter should be different from that In the former. And a candid consideration of these facts clearly establishes it that Louisi ana was rightfully Republican. In ter Ocean. Senator Bayard on Hayes' Policy. Richmond, September 8. Senator Bayard, of Delaware, Is in this city as one of the counsel in the Washington and Ohio railroad case. In answer to the question of what he thought about tho policy of President Hayes, said ; I thand God for it. He has disposed of the only obstacle that stood between tho suffering south and full enjoyment ef her constitutional liberties. He has not only carried out the Democratic policy, but he has oarried the republi cans with him. I think he has tbo cordial support of fully 75 per cent, of his party. Many who were doubtful at first now see the time was ripe for full restoration of every southern state to self-government under the constitution. The history of the states sinco troops were removed is one of the very best arguments why republicans nnd democrats should approve Hayes' policy on this sub ject. A Torriblo -Mistake. Constantinople, September 6. The Turkish commander in Herzego vina reports a band of two thousand Montenegrins surrounded a village near Pressika, intending to get cattle and corn. During the night a fresh band arrived, whom the first supposed tobeTurks. A fierce combat ensued ; 700 were killed and many more wound ed. The mistake was discovered In the morning. A correspondent of the New York World writes from Fort Walsh. Brit ish Northwest Territories, that Sitting Bull, In conversation with one of the Indian police officers, said tnatne was a native of Fort Garry, and an alum nus of St. John's College there. Sev eral old traders remember him as Charlie Jacobs, a half-breed of Ojid way birth, who disappeared from Fort Garry about 1853. The ohlef is des cribed as a medium-sized, athletic built man of 43. He ia familiar with French and English, and speaks sev eral Indian languages. i "The jolly governors" on their re turn trip up New York, shot off their mouths almost to a man, and that man was Governor Garber. Bedleof New tJersey spoke, Porter of Tennessee spoke, Young ot uniospose, Aninony of Kansas spoke; "but Governor Gar bar, bavins nothing to say, sensibly said nothing. Omaha'JRepublican. Des Moines, Iowa .Sept. 6. Secre tary Sherman, In a private letter re ceived here yesterday, says the re sumption act does not mean the en tire cancelation of the greenback cir culation ; that the $300,000,000 refer red to in the act cannot be reduced below that sum prior to January 1S79, and after that date they can be reissued. An Attack Upon the Public School System. New York, September 10. St. Pat rick Leonard, pastor of St. John'a Catholic church, Newark, yesterday made an attack upon thepublicscbool system of the country. An evidence of the baneful influence of public school teaching, he said, might be ob served nightly when young girls of loose character perambulated the streets of Newark. If paren ts permit ted their children to go to public schools, he would avail himself of his privilege and publicly denounoe them from the alter, and if their children were members of the Anglo-Society of St. John's he would have them ex pelled. He would not permit them to associate with the children at the churoh, as he feared their contamina ting influence. He had taken bis stand and under no consideration would he recede from it. We called the attention of tho Chi cago Times to the fact that in pub lishing the amounts paid by the vari ous newspapers for postage it made the sum paid by the Inter Ocean ap pear $2,184, instead of $12,144, as It stands on the records of the postoffioe department. Wo asked the Chicago Times to make the proper correction if the mis take was an unintentional one. The Chicago Times Is silent. We there fore conclude that it lied knowingly, deliberately, purposely. It was a mean lie, because it was made with the intention of belittling our business. It was a silly lie, be cause it was one which would be de tected, and nailed to the forehead of the old rasoal who told it. It was a forgery, because the dispatch was de liberately altered in the Times office and Its meaning grossly perverted. We submit that this Is "diving deeper and staying under longer" than any newspaper man in America has hitherto attempted. We publish again the figures from the books of the postofflce depart ment, giving the amount paid for postage during the last year by the three morning newspapers of Chica go. The Times and Tribune dare not dispute these figures, for they are offi cial and they know it. Inter Ocean 812.144 Times.... - 4,585 Tribune 3.35S Inter Ocean.

He said he went to that locality last May, had worked In various capacities ; boot blacked, tended bar, worked on plaoer mines, and was now going back to his mother in Des Moines' with $1,100 in gold. He was a proud boy, and said that It wasn't always the luck of old heads to get ahead of fresh blood. Sidney Telegraph. m m t tm Harkisburo, Sept. 7th.
