"On the morning of the 5th inst., the startling announcement was mado that Col. Watson B. Smith, clerk of the United States district court, bad boon foully assassinated during tho night by an unknown vidian, which sent a thrill of horror through the community of Omaha. Col. Smith was found in the third story of tho court houso about mid night, lying upon tho marble floor, with his head to the north, and his legs stretching part way across the opening of the door. His left arm lay upon his breast, and his right arm lay stretched out upon tho floor, with the hand partly doubled up, particularly tho first finger. His bead was closo to the wall, and was Burroundcd by a large pool of blood and brains which had become clot ted. The blood covered a surface of three or four feet. His hat lay under his head and was partly filled with blood. A deop bolo in his head was found over the left tem ple. Tho butt-end of a revolver was discovered sticking out of tho loft pantaloons leg near tho foot, a very curious place for it to bo found, and upon examining the weapon it was discovered that one chamber had boen discharged. It was a big self cocking revolver, of the bull-dog pattern. At his feet lay a bundle of newspapers, a postal card and two business lottors directed, ready for mailing. In the partly opened door was Iub bunch of keys, and every thing goes to show that he had just concluded his business and was about to lock tho door and depart when he was set upon and killed by an unknown assassin, under cover of the darkness, and who had been, lying in wait for him. Upon closo inspection of tho de ceased a large bullet holo was found clear through the head, from loft to right, entering above tho temple and passing out in a diagonal direction on tho other side further back on tho head. Tho holo, at tho entrance was very large and jagged, and appeared as if it had been mado by a blow from a heavy instrument. Tho hole at the exit was also quite largo and ragged. Powder marks were on his face, showing that the revolver had been placed close to him. The bullet was found on tho floor in the northwest corner of the hall, badly battered. Aftor a full investigation of tho ovidonce, the jury returned a ver dict that the deceased came to his death by a gun-shot wound through the head, inflicted by somo person or persons, to the jurors unknown, and wo do further find that the kil ling waB a premeditated and ma licious murder. A citizens meeting was called and fivo thousand dollars reward offered for the arrest and conviction of the assassin. The people of Omaha purpose to raise ten thousand dollars in the aggregate for a reward, and for fer roting out tho guilty party. The cause of his death is not yet known, but a strong suspicion exists that be has fallen a martyr because of an endeavor to enforce a law of tho state, and should it thus turn out, then must the highest sense of justice demand a remedy. Wo find the following additional facts given iu the dailies, developed upon tho coroner's inquest of a case that promises to be eolobrated in the annals of this stato. It was at first supposed that the murder was due to some low character in tho whisky interest, as the deceased had been very active in making prosecutions of violations of law, bnt the journals state that there aro reasons (though they do not say what thoy are) for looking to an entirely different source for tho inciting cause. The Good Templars offer a reward of $200, the liquor men's association $500, and at a meeting of citizens of Omaha $10,000 was pledgod. Tho Bee says : TRACKS SEEN. Tho doors leading from tho hall way into the United States court room, and from tho clerk's office into the court room wero all found by tho oflicors upon their arrival to be locked. Tho north door fronting on Fif teenth street, was found unlocked, as it had probably been left for the Colonol to get out. Tho Bee report or discovered tho back window, on the northwest corner of tho building raised. The janitor loft it down last night. On tho stone sill wero plain boot marks, qnito fresh, and along tho stono coping the muddy marks of boots,- leading to tho cornor from which tho assassin leaped to tho sidewalk. This was undoubtedly tho assassin's pre-arranged exit. The steps to tho sonth front door wero daubed with blood and spotted with the same, as if tho bloody hand which besmeared the weapon had boon shaken and then wiped off on tho stone. IMPANNELING THE JURY. At 8 o'clock, Coroner Jacobs im pannolled a jury consisting of James Stephenson, A. Atkinson, J. B. Furay, J. L Redick, F. McShane, D. L. Shane, who wero sworn in in tho hall of tho building where tbo body lay, and viewed tho corpse, which was immediately after removed to Mr. Jacob's undertaking rooms, where a post mortem was set for 10 o'clock. Tho watch, ring, money and valuables wero all found, show ing that robbing was not tbo object of tho crime. In tho large pocket book was A POSTAL CARD addressed "Watson B. Smith, city," and postmarked "Omaha, October 20, 12 m." The roverse side of this card boro the words "nOLD TniS BEFORE A MIRROR." Upon doing this as directed the previously illegible communication was scon to be as follows : "Yon dirty little elinken white headed son-of-a-b . If you over interfere with my business again I will cut your out as sure as your name is Shister. You dirty hypocrite. , You are a toole for a dirty sneak. I will meet you on tho cross roads. T. A."

Omaha Republican. Judge Maxwell will, of course, bo his own successor, but this did not prevent some interested persons or cliquo from distributing a circu lar against tho upright Judge,whose rulings bIiow no bias of partiality or personal interest. This is tho first time in tho history of Nebraska pol itics that we remember to havo seen such a documont, the unknown au thor ashamed to place his name in connection therewith. The circular itself bears internal ovidenco of the source whenco it emanates, if not tho individual who ponned its un truthful lines. That elomont, which seema to havo abundance of monoy at its disposal for such work, should expend it in square, honest business for tho accomplishment of ita ends, and not endeavor, by means to which assassins resort, to destroy both character and life. The arguments on tho motion to sot aside the criminal information in tho star routo cases was begun one morning last week at Washington City. The government is represent ed by District Attorney Corkhill and Brewster, of Philadelphia; Bliss, of Now York, and Cook, of Washing ton, and tho dofonso by Totton, Wil son, Shellabargor, R. G. Ingersoll, Syphor and Jefferson Chandler, of St. Louis. The counsol on the pari of the defendants claim that in such cases thore could bo no authority found in any of tho statutes for filing a criminal information. No result had been reached, but tho counsol for the defence, Mr. Ingersoll, insists that the grand jury is placed botween tho citizon and his reputation and in liko cases protects his good name. TnE Omaha Republican of Nov. 8th, says: "Last evening a brief dispatch was received at Union Pa cific headquartors stating that on Sunday a party of hunters who bad gone on a hunt from Fort Steele, Wyoming, wero poisoned by arsenic which they had used in cooking, having mistaken it for baking pow der. They had tho arsouic with them for the purposo of preserving meats. Four of the number have since died, one of them being a brother of Capt. McAuley, and oth ers are. dangerously ill, with little or no hopes of recovery. The County Central Committee appointed the delegates from Stanton Wayne, Cuming, Boone and Hall counties, all of which delegates were opposed to tho renomination of Judge Maxwell, and from what wo havo been able to gather they did not represent anybody but the rail road ring. Pierce County Call. We do not know how applicable tho abovo is to the othor counties, but we do know that it hits tho nail square on tho head here. Tho lie view opposed tho proceedings of the central committee, and two-thirds ayo four-fifths of the republicans of Wayne county are with us to-day. Wayne Review. Little Olo Johnson had a terrible racket with a horso thiof yesterday morning. On going to tho stablo to do his chores, ho discovered that his pony was missing.
