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-

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

THE BLACK HILLS COUNTRY
Arrival of the First Circus With a Surplus
of Glitter and Antique Gags ,
The Marvelous Changes of Ten Years
Iho Rapid Advance of the
Railroad Halted With
Delight.
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

pleasant Sunday > afternoon , and we
watched the uiyi'iads ' of people coming
in and going out. 'It might bo well to
say that when they went out they bimply

As wo stood by the desk I was struck
with tlio appearance of a man who came
in , Upon asking about him a resident

specimen of how mankind comes to the
front. 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

stamping ground is indeed an interesting
one. 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

Rapid City wiU not bo "in the west. "

The tonu of IrishVmorlcnn spcochod

bill is Inexpressively pleasant nulling for
all wh .value the safety of our cause *
Our Irish-American brethren's universal
niul mujnulglntf approval is an event ot
the lirst majrnitmlu. 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.
