The state board of equalization have prepared the following table , showing the number of miles of railroad in Ne braska , the assessed valuation per mile , and the total for each road , as a biisis for computing 110 taxes for 1830' TWO UNW1LL1NU UEKIINDAKTS. Notice was served on the secretary of state and the auditor yesterday by J. A. Uilkcson , that on the 2oth lust , no will apply to the supreme court for a writ of mandamus requiring them to certify that railway bond No. ! ! , of Butler county , hearing date of July I , 1870 , was issued according to law. and that it must bo registered. Air. Ollkuson is attorney for the plaintiff in the State ex rol Abby ( inrditor vs. K. P. Koggen and H. A. Dahcock , and the present move is in con nection witli thai action. In 1871) ) , . it seems , the people of Butler county voted about $70COO in bonds to aid in the con struction of a railway , leaving it to the county coni'iiissioners to say whether they should bo given to the Lincoln & Northwestern , or Blue Valley & North western , both of which roads were then projected in that region. Adam Spurok , a taxpayer , got an injunction from Judge Post restraining the registration of the bonds on the ground that the' voters had no power to allow tin ) com missioners to say to which road they should bo given , but should have designated the company themselves at the time of election. The Bupreme court upheld the injunction and the bonds were never registered. They were given to the Lincoln & Northwi-.si- cm railway , however , and passed into the possession of the Frank Brother.- ! ( Warsaw. N. Y. , who have managed in u thousand ways to drag them into the countless litigations they have had of late years in the Nebraska and United States courts. The uhiintill' , in this notion , is a resident of New York , and probably a purchaser from the Franks. Mr. Koggensays the people of Butler county are willing to pay the bonds , but in face of the injunction sustained by the supreme court ho does not sec how ho or Mr. Babcock can bo asked to register and certify them. The court , which is now construing the law very liberally , may lix matters so it can bo done , but until it docs , lie cannot take the desired action.'So ' fur us lighting the case is concerned , Mr. Roggen says that ho is tired of footing the bills for such litiga tion from his private funds , as he is compelled to do , and wants no more of BIKETINO OF THE PUBLIC LAND BOAIID. The board of educational lands and buildings , at its mooting yesterday , or dered the leases on 10,000 acres of school lands in Bolt county cancelled for non payment of rental. These lands are among the most desirable in the state , and will be re-advertised and oflercd for loose some time in July. On n contest fora lease of eighty acres , including a valuable water right , in liar- lun county , the board decided to with draw the land for the time being and re- advertised it. The tract had boon leased to u party who forfeited his rights , but when it was ollered for lease B second time , a few weeks ago , and a premium of $200 bid , a man in the crowd "bobbed up serenely" with an assignment from the first renter , and cltiimqd a show. This lead to a contest , and the offer which was then accepted by the county ollicers , has been rejected by the board. As was expected , the board endorsed Commissioner Scott's ruling , that under no circumstances can any one individual lease or hold mure than 040 acres of school land. The Question came up on a case from Keith county , where a man having leased 040 acres from the state , sub-leased half of it , and then tried to lease 320 more from the etate so as to still keen his 040 acres. Mr. Scott held that while an individual can buy all the school land ho desires , having once leased 040 acres lie is forever barred from taking any more in that way. The endorsement of the board was not uryini- mous , but it was enough. HOW LANDS ARE UNUF.KVALUED. Chief Clerk Carter , of the board of public lands , wasquostiouc'd by the BEE representative yesterday concerning the - sale , at an alleged undervaluation , of section 10 , town 3. iiinpo 10 , In Franklin - lin county. Ha said ; ' 'Tho appraisal of school lands is made by the commis sioners of the counties in which the lauds arc situated. ' These men are supposed to know the value of the property , and take an oath to do the work honestly and without fear or favor. Their returns are made to this oflico on oath , and in the absence of any conlllcting evidence , or contest , nro accepted as fair and just , It is impossible for the com missioner or his aides here to know whether the appraisal is good or not. That can best bo told by the men who live in tliu vicinity of the land. If , when ever u fraud of this nature is discovered or expect d , notlco is Bunt to this oflico. the papers will bo cancelled at once ami a new apnraisemont ordered. If tao cor respondent ot thcBii : ; iu Franklin county had dropped n hint to Commissioner Scott of what was going on , the under- valuentlon , if there was any , could have been corrected. " TUB nuniAL or MACMAHOX. Tliu remains of MacMahon have been buried at the driving park on the green inside of the track , and it is the in tention of Billy Kdwards , the ohiol mourner , to mark the spot with u suitable monument. Billy , who knew the horse bettor than any other man could , says ho is oonlidont that ho would have trotted in 2:10 : this summer if1 Death had not droupod the distance flag in his face so early In the season. By the way , som * of the papers arc making a ludicrous mis take by classing MacMahou and Maxey Cobb as half-brothers. There was no re- latioiiahip , asldo , perhaps , from being very distant cousins , or something of thai sort. Maxoy was of tha llamblotonian- Black-Hawk cross , while MacMahon was closaly inbred to tun old Hero of Chester , being oy llamblotonian , out of n famous raaro.

AN INADEQUATE CHAUTEU. The only answer thus tar received by Chairman Billingsly of the paving com mittee , in response to his letter of in quiry as to the power of the city authori ties , under the present charter , to issue bonds for public improvements , is from Messrs. Harwood , Ames & Kelloy. Those gentlemen say that the city cannot float securities to pay for paving the street intersections , and neither can the cost bo assessed against the general fund. If by charter to carry on the work is Sovyer the present instrument , in their opinion , is inadequate. They , however , make the same suggestion credited to Messrs. Lamb and Billingsly yesterday , which is that the council order a census taken and if the population of the city is shown to bo 25,000 Governor Dawos can bo petitioned to issue a proclamation de claring it a city of the first class , and en titled to all the charter rights and privi leges belonging to municipal corpora tions of that grado. A BAD MAT1HMONIAL VENTURE. When John W. Thackara was married to the object of his affections , in Novem ber , 1831 , lie believed her to oo an inno cent and virtuous woman , a confidence which she strengthened and encouraged with all a woman's wiles. At least that is the way John puts it in ntv interesting paper now on file in the district court. On the 4th of March following , however , tlio day that Cleveland was inaugurated. John's wife , being a good democrat , did her best to celebrate the event by givine birth to a child. John was a little curi ous to learn the cause of this unusual proceeding , and by persistent questioning found that , instead of an innocent woman , ho had married the mistress of a man named Ed , John's , and that , by her own confession , the latter was the lather of the child. Thaokara is now in court asking for a compote divorce , with per mission to marry again , provided he can call the turn a little closer. BUIHV MENTION. A man named Ryan , formerly in busi ness in this city us the proprietor of the old "Hod Front" grocery on Eleventh street , wus arrested by the police Thurs day night for stealing a bolt of cloth valued at $37 00 from John Kelly , the jailor. On his way to jail Ryan was ob served to tear a ploco of paper into small bits which on being pasted together by Judge Parsons proved to bo a bogus check on H. r. Law for $33. It was shown that Ryan had tried to get the chock cashed , and ho was held to answer at the district court to the two charges , of grand larceny and forgery. E , l'\ Steele , u young ( armor in Rich- nrdson county , fins complained to the board of railway commissioners that the B. & M , authorities persist in ignoring his demand that they fence tholr track where it runs through his land. President Corrcll of thoNebraska Press association , who was in the city yester day , says that the executive committee are trying to arrange for an excursion to tlio City of Mexico about the middle of July. If this trip is not satisfactory to the majority of the members n tour of the Pacific coast will bo proposed. The board of railway commissioners nro sending out circulars to the clerks of all the counties In the state asking for specific information us to the amount of bonds issued to aid railways , the rate of interest , time to run , amount paid and collected , sum refunded , etc. Milton White , the expert accountant , lias been engaged by the commissioners of Otoo county , at $10 per day , to ex amine the treasurer's books for years back , Newton's hardware store was burglar ized early yesterday morning , and $150 worth of stock stolon. .

Percy A. Folsom , writing to the Chica go News from Rapid City , Dakota , says : An event in Rapid City to-day has been the arrival of the first circus wagon ever in the Black Hills. It came in late this afternoon from. Buffalo Gap. I was nt the time walking south toward the hills and passed a happy crowd of boys who wore evidently born hero. The huge vehicle , with its marvelously painted sides and its six horses , hove in sight just beyond the gap on the stage road. The boys came running toward mo and in excited language begged me to toll them what was coming. They ere 7 or 8 years old , and had boon born hero. They were familiar with the overland freight teams , they had scon the Deadwood stages , and were perfectly acquainted with the Fort Mo ado ambulances ; but tiis ) contrivance had never before come before their optics. Think of it ! The boys born ten years ago in the Black Hills mid never seen a circus. I told them what the wagon meant. I told them how in time the poles and canvas would bo put In position in tlio Gate city of the Black Hills. I told them what it meant. It meant , In pfain , unadulterated language , $2 per ticket for general admission. . That settled it. The boys followed the wagon awhile and then wont home. Even the old-timors viewed it with interest the forerunner of the first circus in the Blaok Hills. This region was first invaded by tlio white man in 1875 , and for eleven years it has been compelled to put up without a circus. But now tlio dawn ap pears. The railway is within fifty miles of Rapid , and of course civilization is near. The circus , with ilia red lemonade , its bespangled bcautle on white horses , and its clowns with iokcs that would make a sphinx sick , is within tlio reach ot all. The lirst circus * dins struck the Blaok Hills. i ( . , After seeing tjiisoclrcus wagon come in I wended my way Mto the International hotel. This house Jjas been hero some tlmo The proprietor , P. B.

'It might bo well to say that when they went out they bimply wont to the bar In the room adjoining. As wo stood by the desk I was struck with tlio appearance of a man who came in , Upon asking about him a resident near said ' ' that's Flormann us ; 'Why , , .BobFlonnann , Twenty-five years ago he lived where Denver now stands.

Now , there's a man who followed a bull train into Rapid in ' 77. Ho hadn't a sou in his pocket and didn't know where ho was to lay his head. But ho was a rustler. Ho borrowed a razor , rented a room , and opened n barber shop. His lirst customer was Fred T. Evans , the millionaire freighter , and Tom charged him a half-dollar. This gave Tom n starter , and ho is now worth a cool $150,000. " While taking this with a good-sized grain of allowance in came John Bronnan. John has been the only postmaster in Rapid. He came hero in the centennial 'year and built a "shack" whore the American house now stands. Ho fed pcoplo _ and made money on it. The re sult is that he is now rated among the men that aro.not . among those who wore. His log hotel was down toward Rapid creek , and the building was not an in viting ono. When transients came and asked for dinner he hied himself forth and ordered suflicicnt food to do thorn , saying at the same time that he would call after securing their money and settle the liability. Ho took their orders , yelled the same into an adjoining room inhabited by an imaginary cook , and then prepared the dinner himself. Now his rentals alone bring him about $0,000 per year , and he is looked up to as a man who has accomplished something in the last ton yours. Coming right down to plain , overy-day facts , tliu hills country probably pos sesses as many odd characters as any particular neighborhood in America. Take , for instance , the real-estate agents. Charley Wright is a man who has knocked all over the western country. Ho is a tall , slim men , with an auburn complexion and nn eagle's eyo. Ho hug followed western boom after boom , and has done nothing but ride on the top of the wave has'gradually rolled west ward. He comes into a new town , opens a land oflico. makes his njonoy , and moves on. Ho iu decidedly a first-rate example of the western land dealer. Then there is Tom Wallace , a nephew of of Ucn. Lew Wallace. Ho came in nine years ago in a statro on Bismarck when out-riders looked Into the matter of Indians. Ho is an easy-going , angular individual , who knows nearly every inch of the Black hills country. Of course there are saloons and gam bling houses in Jlapld. The city wouldn't bo a western ono without them. Gam bling is done in five out of the eleven. The dealers , in most instances , are old- timers who have passed years in the western country and know how to take a joke from ono wearing a wide hat and high heels. I saw a game of faro in Hay ward's last night wherein a stockman - man from the neighborhood of Sundance lost a cool $800. It didn't tako'long , and the loser loft thu table as nonchalant ly as is he was simply lighting a oigar. It was an ordinary thing for him. Ho had been there before , and it was a matter of not much consequence whether lie lost or won. He played to pass thu time away , and frequently won as much as ho lost last niglit. Ho told mo after ward that be had several thousand head of cattle in the Powder river country , and that last v/inter ho only lost four from exposure. I rather imagined that this fact innilo him a little more indifferent - different about his losses over the green. But gambling isn't what it was in the hills. I doesn't pay the runners as muoh. Money doesn't como in big piles , and every one is hustling to n dolimto desti nation and a settled vocation. One noes iu tlicso saloons specimens of men who have seen the downs rather than the tips of life in the hills. Playing faro near the stockmen was the shcrilTot n certain western Dakota county. In yc\rs ; \ gone by lie was ono of the most pop ular inon and wore Just si little better clothes than any of hU acquaintances.

In another saloon and gambling house 1 was told that never less than thirty and frequently twice that number of "rounders" held down chairs from midnight until old Sol appeared over the Pierre road in the cast. These "round ers" are men many of them who have seen butter days , but who now are com pelled to seek some saloon in which to sleep There are several all night saloons in Rapid , and each ono harbors a host of them. Where they eat no ono knows , and no ono scorns to bare. The marshal orders a good-sized number of them to move on each day. They comply , as a rule , but there is no traditional ' 'vacant chair" left in the gilded saloon. Someone ono else walks in and occupies it. This same marshal is also a character. His name is McNully , and lie is a pugilist. Being possessed of a magnificent form and a still more magnificent cartridge belt and pistol , ho is nn awe-inspiring personage. "Tender-feet" just coming in are furnished with talcs of his encoun ters in the ring and out of it without extra cost. cost.The bartenders in these places are about the saiuo as those in the cast. The only difference is that they charge you a quarter for two beers. In many cases they are remarkable men. Bob Moll , nt the American house bar , is a Uhinclander and has saved his money during the last few years to such an extent - tent that ho now owns many buildings on Main street. Tom Bcntloy , who bows behind the bar at the "Drum , " was the first rccorder'of deeds in Deadwood and the first United States commissioner in Rapid. What he doesn't know about the hills will never become u matter of history. But aside from all this , ono is not ex pected to form the opinion that Rapid is a hard town. Then ; is a good and n bad side to it , of course. The visitor can pay his money and take his choice. Brick blocks are Rofng up , and civilization is becoming more prominent everywhere. Fine residences , n brick hotel , water works , and other evidences of faith and capital are being built. The railway will bo hero by the 1st of Juno , and the city will then uo more accessible. The North western Stage company will pull out for their now contract in Wyoming , and the Iron horse will take Its place. The bul lion , tin , and other outgoing products of the hills will scarcely uoutf any more wagon-hauling , and in a short time Rapid City wiU not bo "in the west. " Bauuuath Observance.

It will bo a mor powerful nuxillnry oven than tholr open * Imiulml subscriptions * Had their opln ions taken a different direetlon they would have boon ravenously lapped up by the London newspapers. Wo may bo sure there is not an Irish shoot published from the Atlantic to the I'aolllo shoio that has not boon greedily conned for opinions that might bo used to Mr. Glad stone's prejudice. Had the obaourost of them indulged In the cheap bravery of scoulng tit or disparaging the boon , Ha words of wisdom would have boon-Hashed across the ocean as if they represented the united and unalterable mind of the race. The only possible chance of Mr. ( ihulstono's bill gaining acceptance in the face of the tremendous prejudices that environ it In England is the persua sion that it would bo honestly and royally regarded by the Irish people as closing the quarrel. Even a very trivial or thoughtless outburst of . Irish dissent would bo so magnified by lying malignity as to bo liossibly fatal. The straining for the lirst symptom of Irish dissension the downright fiendish determination to misread and pervert the truth about Irish opinion was never so grossly be trayed. The whole gist and burden of the opposition to the bill was that it would not satisfy Ireland. When the heart-shout "Every man of them ! " from the Irish benches , and the universal joy ous chorus that rang through the island. disposed of any doubts as to how the measure was regarded at homo , the anti- Irish demons Fixed their hopes upon Irish-America. Tholr eternal argument is that Irish-America is Mr. Parnell's paymaster and , tyrant , and that oven if ho were disposed to make an honest peace Irish-America would forbid It. The Irish-Americans are constantly pictured to the English public as irrceonoiloablo desperadoes , whoso theory of loving Ire land is to keep her in eternal misery for llio mirnoso of indulging an insatia ble thirst lor murder and dynamite ox- plosions. What more certain , therefore , than that any project for composing the quarrel by moans of a friendly pact with , England would bo hailed with execrations on the other side of the AthmsioY Griev ous has been the disappointment of these malign hopes. Irish-American opinion has so thoroughly and heartily with one voice acclaimed Mr. Gladstone's message of peace that the assassin literature of London which would have grasped at an extract from the pettiest village sheet , if it had been violent , is forced studiously to ignore one of the greatest phenomena of the century the spectacle of the most extreme of the Irish-American millions oll'ering a cordial grasp of friendship to clinch the bargain with Mr. Gladstone. The epitome of American and Irish- American oninion which the Irish Na tional LiuKriin is nnllnntinff will bo a source of immeasurable strength to Mr. Gladstone. He can say literally with the English monarch of Shakespeare's play : ' A hundred thousand rebels die in this ! " Mr. John Boyle O'Reilly is a representa tive Irish-American , of the stamp who would go to the cannon's mouth for Ire land , and would out out his tongue rather than fashion it to words he did not mean ; and here is how he spoke facing ton thousand upturned Irish faces in Fiinucil hall , Boston : "Air. Gladstone has in ono day softened the hatred engendered and Increased by cen turies oC misrule in Ireland. [ Applause. ! lie lias astonished Irishmen themsnlves by demonstrating that It Is possible for England still to wln'tbo hearts of Irishmen [ cries of "Good , " and cheers. ] I cannot speak for Irishmen , but 1 can speak for one Irishman who was a rebel feneersj that I respect , and honor and love Mr. Gladstone for his magnificent offer to Ireland. [ Iteuewctl ap plause ] . " Such nn avowal from such a man is worth a million a year of Irish tribute to enlightened English statesmanship. It strikes the chord which resounds through the whole Irish-American world : rejoice ment at the prospect of terminating an age-long war ; hearty proclamation that whatever contents the Irish peonlo will content their blg-licarted brethren be yond Iho ocean also. Hence it la that Irish-American opinion is so rigorously stowed out of Bight in the Englisu papers. Ono or two sentences of balderdash from the Irish World arc the only pro vider of mischief they can forngo from the entire transatlantic press , and thu.su are paraded us though the Irish World had not been for years lighting tooth and. nail against Mr. Purnnll and his policy , without any astounding results to tha latter. We may judge from the dira significance which the Times attaches to the fact that a particular Irishman who cordially embraces the principle of the bill criticises a few of its details , how Villainous a use would have boon made of any , even the most haro-braincd ex pression that could bo tortured into an Irish-American repudiation of the proffered treaty of peace between the two nations. The Cockney newspaper ghouls have boon baulked of this grati fication , and not oven the most princely pecuniary sacrifices of the last tovou years have done more to advance the cause of Homo Uulci than the demonstra tion our Irish-American brethren hava just given our foes that , if prompt to revenge tUeir country's wrongs , an ou- jo ct still more grateful to their hearts Ute to ECO her bloodlessly established In happiness and peace and independence. pyTp-t-j PILLS 25 YEARS IN USE.
