SENATOR EDMUNDS' letter declining the associate justiceship is made pub lic. Judge Blatchford , of Now York , is now thought to bo the coming man "TnK largest cave" is the heading of an article in a Kentucky nowepa per. "Tho largust cavo" on record will bo when the editor of the Herald takes back water on his abuaivo Ian' ' guago towards Omaha workingmen , THE Herald represents the Grand Army of the Republic as tendering their services to Mayor Boyd and Governor Nanco to suppress strikers and rioters. This statement is absolutely lutoly falao. The Grand Army is a purely benevolent organization , and no post has the right to volunteer in the name of the Grand Army than a ledge of Masons or Odd Follows. IT isn't proving so easy to keep graders on the dump , even with seven hundred troops- within calling distance. Yesterday afternoon fho impressive iipoctaclo of seven hundred soldiers protecting three men and a scraper against a dangerous mob of two little girls and n small boy , could have been witnessed by any spectator passing down Eighth street. NEW YORK is revelling in another pious defalcation , the victim being tthe Fourth National bank , and the defaulter one Richard H. Cornwall , their loan clerk. Mr. Cornwall pos sessed nil the most approved qualifica tions for a successful defaulter. Ho waa a Sunday school teacher and superintendent , a church member , highly honored and greatly respected. Going on the old principle that hon esty is the best policy for embezzlers , Cornwall used his religion as a cloak under which ho quietly pocketed $80- 000 of the bank funds and nunk his atoalinga in the vortex of Wall street. IT will bo a surprise to many of our readers to learn that Ohio has been unfairly dealt with in regard to federal offices. Governor Foster says BO , and Governor Foster must be admitted to bo a fair and impartial judge. In a recent interview with the president , Mr , Foster , laid especial stress upon the point that Ohio haa not got.noarly as many offices as is generally sup posed , and reports state that the presi dent finally admitted that ho was sat isfied that Ohio was cruelly wronged. A few vacant cocsulatea still remain , and there will doubtless bo found a sufficient number of Biukoyo patriots to fill them. i THE colored people of the United States lese in the death of the Eov. Henry Highland Qarnot , late minis ter to Liberia , ono of the most intel ligent and representative men of their race in the country. Mr Garnet was next to Frederick A. Douglass the moat eminent colored man in the United States. Ho was born n slave on the estate of Colonel William Spencer in Maryland in 1810. When a moro lad ho escaped to the free states , and at the ago of twenty-seven ho graduated from the Oneida colle giate institute and entered the theo logical sch'ool at Troy , New York. For many years ho waa pastor of the Shiloh African Presbyterian church in Now York City , where ho soon In. oamo distinguished as a gifted public pcakor and an eloquent preacher. Mr. Garnett was an earnest republican and an active worker in the abolitionist rankc. Dating the early d ys of the trnubiu i o made several trips to Europe , and awakened great interest ui the movement by his powerful ad dresses. Dr. Garnett twice sat on the floor of national republican conven tions as a delegate. Ono of President Garfield'a last official acts waa to ap point him minister to Liberia. It is said that Dr. Garnett'a grandfather was brought from the country which is now Liberia about a hundred years ago by slave dealers , and that his daughter , Mrs. Barboza.a missionary , has for aonio lime past lived and la. bored among the native Africans in the very place from which their an- , ce-tor was carried away into slavery. MURDERING NONCOMBATANTS ANTS The coroner's inquest over the body of the murdered Armstrong haa do volopcd a remarkable ntato of focti The defenseless old man was put to doa'.h by mililiamnn in broad dayllgh in the strools of Omaha , but aftc diligent inquiry the jury is compollci to render a verdict that Armstrong came to his death at the hands of a soldtor serving in the militia to thorn unknown. The evasive testimony o officers and soldiers shows not only a criminal design to shield the culpri that committed this unmilitary mnr dor , but n disgraceful lack of diaciplino that justifies the charge that our military is nothing bettor than an armed mob. During all the inquiry no officer know or claimed to know what company the militia man that bayonottod Arm strong belonged to. Nor could a muster roll bo probucod ot the detai of the charging party to patrol the street. During a state of war in an enemy's country the guard on duty ia not allowed to fire upon or kill wilk any woaporf n non-combatant. All ho can do is to arrest the man and hand him over to the provost marshal. But the Nebraska militia act as if they were a band of guorrclaa , wholly ig norant of cither military usage or civil law. For this their com manders should bo hold responsible. In any army the killing of a non com batant by soldora on duty is re ported to the commanding officerwho immediately calls a court of inquiry to ascertain the facts and circumstances of the killing. But when unarmed men are murdered by our militia , their officers plead ignorance and exert all their influence to cover up the party guilty ot this criminal broach of discipline. Contrast the re cent trial of Sergeant Mason , sen tenced to eight years hard labor for firing at Guitcau. Can General Alex ander and Goxornor Nanco allow this military murder to go by without instituting the usual inqufy. Even among Indians the killing of an un armed man is pronounced murder , and they are required to find the cowardly bravo who takes the lifo of a non-combatant. In this case the military are hereto to enforce the criminal laws , not to violate them , and all mon or papers that have invoked military protection cannot gloss this inurdor over by any sort of protonso. WHY ALARMING I Omaha haa Buffered moro damaeo ilroady from baseless reports telo- jraphod all over the country concern ing the existing labor troubles than an bo repaired in many years. On Friday morning the Denver Tribune published spool-la that Boyd's opera bouse and the Omaha postoffico were tot on fire and destroyed by the mob , md banks , railroad headquarters and lowspapor offices were threatened by ho "rioters. " Saturday morning ho Associated Press announced that ho strikes had "assumed a very ilarming character , " and that United States troops were called upon to dis- xsrso the riotous mob. The imprcs- tion has boon created abroad by lying tnd magnified reports that the streets ) f Omaha have run rod frith gore , and .hat riot ia wrecking ruin in our city. No citizen of Omaha needs to bo , told that there has bocn no reason 'or sorioua alarm einoo the beginning ) f the troublo. Lifo and property mvo boon socnro so far aa Omaha's workingmen have boon concornod. The only lifo that haa boon lost was jruolly oaorificod by an undisoiplinod militia. There has not been an hour in which the oivio authorities could not have enforced any order if they had possessed the backbone of a dis mantled gamecock , The laws of the state were never defied , and the only breach of the peace which occurred could easily have boon prevented if the mayor and his deputies had not skulked to the roar of hostilities and given orders to the regular police to retire - tire just when the breath of the peace became imminent. For three days nftor the knocking down of a special policeman caused Mayor Boyd to call i > n the government for protection , no visitor to Omaha could have told from the appearance of our streets or busi- nets house that any difliculty between capital and labor existed in our city. What was there "alarming'jJn the character of the ntriko on Wednesday , Thursday or Friday after the affair on the grade , which the railroad organs magnified into a bloody riot ? Wasn't lifo and property in Omaha as secure as it was the week bpfore ? Did any of our sensible citizens fool called upon ( o take extra precautions to defend their persona and homos ? The only individuals who had any occasion to fool alarm were the mayor , who had proved himself incompetent to deal with the trouble and needed some thing to furnish an excuse for his til-considered course , and the editor of the Herald who had boon howling his loud mouthed abuse for a week at Omaha workingmen Wasn't it the best proof of the peace and quiet that prevailed in Omaha that both these men were unmolested by the very mon they had pronounced an un governable and rod-handed mob , And what ia there "alarming" to-day in the character of the itriko in Omaha for which our work- ingmon nro responsible. Isn't it a fact that the only lifo which haa been lost since the commencement of the trouble was that of a pence Able oh man , who waa bayoneted while pros Irate on the ground ! The solo cause of the alarm is the presence of the military , who are holding drunken carouses on our streets and inflaming the passions of our people by action that would not bo justifiable undo the rules of war by on army of in vadora in an enemy's country. SENATOR VAN WYCICS OF FENSE. Senotar Van Wyck made a grave mistnko in replying at all to the dis patch from the lender of the mob , the man Walsh , who is hold in heavy bai for appearance on a chnrgo of assaul with intent to kill. Such mon as thi loafer and demagogue , who has no nnd never had a dollar's interest in this city , are not the mon for n sen ator from the state in the conprees to hold communication with. Senator ator Van Wyck's answer to thia incendiary condiary lender , which was road to the mob in Jefferson square on Sun day , has awakened very painful feelings - ings of distrust in the minds of tin business mon and property owners o ; this city , and not least in the minds of many who have felt , nnd would re tain a high personal rcspoct for the senator. Republican. What WOH Senator Van Wyck's of- tonne ? Ho simply congratulates Omaha workingmen upon the assur ance that there was no truth in the report telegraphed the president that the civil and military authorities ol Nebraska were unable to protect lifo and property and maintain order in Dmaha. Ho congratulates the work- ngmon upon the assurance that they lad no intention to violate the laws , and informed them that ho would at heir request call upon the president and submit their statement and romon- tranco. Was there anything improper in his ? Does Senator Van Wyck ignore and insult the busmass mon or corpo ration managers by responding to the pquest of a less wealthy or extra so- ect class of constituents/ / Does a Jnitod States senator represent only nobocrats and mon of property ? la not the poorest among our citizens as much entitled to his services as the millionaire ? Mr. Walsh [ appealed to ho senator on behalf of the labor union of Omaha and the senator only did his duty in treating their request with the same courtesy that ho would the request of corporation managers , bankers or merchants. Such'conduct cmly increases popular respect for Senator Van Wyck as a man , and as a true representative of the people. But wo can assure the senator that in this instance his instinct and im pulse has , oa usual , been eminently n accord with the public interest , rho president has been outrageously imposed upon. There has been no domoatio insur rection liot or turbulence in Nebraska vhich the civil authorities were una- } le to suppress. The call for troops md the intrusion of the army is without justification. There _ is no nero dangot whatever to life or prop- irty in Omaha than there is in any ithor city of rqual population , and ho day is not distant when those mon rho called for military protection rill bo heartily ashamed thomsolves. WINTER "WHEAT. Farmers generally will be interested n learning that winter wheat planted ast fall ia in an unusually favorable iondition throughout the country. 3omo very suggestive statistics on the lubjoot have been collected by the Jommorcial Bulletin , covering over iOO different wheat fields , and also noluding the wheat and corn crops > f last year still remaining with the ' .trmors who cultivated them. The ligniQcant point brought out by the iomparativo table of figures is the ratio of condition in the winter cheats reported from all the wheat- growing states , a falling off bninj re ported in very few instances indeed , with the exception of some damage lone by insect plagues and frost. In rcspoct to the acreage , a largo increase > ver last year is indicated in the cases ) t Missouri , Kentucky , and Indiana , while there has also boon a gain in this regard in the cases of Ohio , Illi nois , and Kansas. In the latter throu itatcs , however , this gain was coun terbalanced by the losses sustained in certain counties. The summary indicates that there was in many lo- sahtios a very important increase in the acreage nf winter wheat over ; ho crop of last year , and that the con- lition nf the crop wan much above the iverugo. Of the aid crops of wheat md Indian corn phutud last year but i small proportion remains on hand n Michigan and Wiscoesin , with a imall percentage in Kentucky , Indi um nnd Minnernta. A largepTccnt- ige , however , still remains undisposed ) f in Illinois , Iowa and Missouri. Moro > f the wheat crop remains on the 'armors' handa than of the corn , lowovor , over one-third of the entire vheat crop still being left in Minno- lota , Iowa , Illinois and Ohio , with a limilarly large ratio in other states. L'ho exact average of the wheat crop emaining in the hands of growers is ! 3.4 per cent. , and of corn 30.5 per : ent. From these figures the infer- > nco is drawn by The Bulletin that ho stocks which have to provide for iced and consumption for R period of we months are relatively very light , uid the journal asserts , that the indi cations nro that the supplies of whoa and corn for eastward shipment nr likely to bo very limited from now un til next August. ATTOIISRT GKNEHAI , DILLWOUTH act ing at the back of corporation auto crats has caused Judge Savage to im panel a special grand jury to indie the so-called reckless demagogues wh have incited a dangerous mob to mut dorous assaults. On Wednesday nigh at the very hour when Mayor Boy < was telegraphing for troops and thre days before Omaha was put under th protection of the military ono of thcs reckless demagogues addressing th "riotous mob" made the following incendiary condiary speech : "For God'a sake do not do anything rash to bring down the condemnation of peaceable , law abiding citizens and put the union in a bad light , but stick to your colors Bo honorable ; act like mon , not like a mob , and discourage excitement Keep away from saloons nnd let va grants and lonfcra that are always euro to hang around the edge of i strike entirely nlono , and above al things do not violate any law. " THE proposition to arbitrate on the differences of opinion between employers ployors and employes came from the so-calied blood-thirsty strikers ol Omaha. This gory prtposition haa been in dignantly refused by the managers ol the B. & M. , who declined to hold any negotiations looking to nn end of the troublo. And who is responsible for the fact that the difficulty still remains unset tled. tled.In In ether cities during the past week in at least two instances serious labor troubles have boon Bottled by mutual concessions between the men and the employers. In what respect are the Omaha riigh-mightincBses superior to eastern capitalists ? And doesn't their refusal to treat with mon now open to argument lay them open to the charge of wilfully continuing a trouble for whoso re sults they profess BO much fear and rembling ? WHT don't the attorney general call upon Judeo Savage to instruct the special grand jury to indict the man or men that murdered Geo. P. Arm strong ? Why don't that grand jury nvestipate by what authority of law any soldier can lay violent hands on citizens of Omaha while the civil offi cers of law the police and constabu- ary are not resisted in the perform ance of their duties. Ben Hill' . Condition. rational Associated Piest. WASHINGTON , March 14. Senator ion Hill to-day remarked that his life waa all behind him. He was simply waiting for the end. He haa been laaior than a few days ago/ but his riends have no hope of permanent mprovempnt. He has undergone our operations. The first was the eraoval of small wart-like a - excres- enco on the side of the tongue ; the ocnnd removal took about one fourth f the tongue and the entire ffoor of lip mouth. At the third a hard and lainful kernel developed in the poste- ior of the mouth was removed. After wards it was discovered that the parotid tid gland was affbctodj it swelled and became violently inflamed. The symptoms were BO violent that the gland wa ? removed. From this time the patient steadily failed. Cancer is i commonly fatal disease in his Family. Killed Him in Self-Defense- National Associated Press. LITTLE ROCK , "March 14. A private dispatch from Dallas to-day says that the city was thrown into great excite ment by the shooting and killing of ox-Mayor Thurmand in the court room by B. E. Oowart , a lawyer. For yean paat a bitter feeling existed between the parties. When both met In the court room to-day vituperative words passed , and drawing pistols al most simultaneously both commenced firing. Ono ball passed through Thurmand'a head , scattering his brains and causing instant death. He was a native of Kentucky , about 45 yours of ano. and at one time district judgo.

Streoter , late green back candidate for governor , and Geo. F. Harding , the anti-railroad man , is really a political move in the interests of David Davis , who , it is asserted , would like to bo roturnwd to the sen ate. The convention is genera1 , and the railroad commissioners , in partic ular , claim it to bo called with a view to making political capital for the next campaign. The fact that only manufacturing merchants and large shippers have any urlnvanre * , no far u railroad * are concerned , is presented in support of the view that the com ing convention ia wholly a political scheme.
