Recent events should . serve to
teach political leaders a salutary
lesson. Men do not follow leaders
with that unquestioning devotion,
they did in the days_of Clay, Web
ster, Jackson and Calhoun. Then
when the mail coach was depended
upon forthe news from the. nation's
capitol, received only after - a weeks
slow coach journey,
.men waited for
the 'utterances: of party. leaders in
Congress on all questions of nation
al importance and blindly followed
in the lead of their s political idols.
Now the news , fronl all 'quarters of
the world is flashed over - The country
on the wings of the lightening and
dished up for 'public information by
an intelligent press.- Men read and
think, and act upon their own judg
ment deliberately fOrtned : from .the
evidences before them. : Political
idols are broken in a moment and
the mistakes of public men are in

and the -peciple refuse to follow.

;from the ruin he has brought upon his
Axial head, it is well to - .remind readers
again and again that something else is
•g( Mg on in Government affairs which
will be of advantage to the country and
rAouud to the credit of the . Itepubli-
can party long after the row over the
New-York Senatorships is over. At
Washington the new Administration. is
quietly, intelligently and effectively
performing its dut - y of managing the
business of the country iu the interest
of the people. :It has achieved already
some very notable_ successes.- Indeed,
it is safe to sas that no other Adminis
tration ever accomplished SO much
thoroughly good work in the first few
months of its career.
Let us glance for a Moment at a few
of the . conspicuously -- meritorious acts
of the President and his Cabinet. The
State Department, under Mir. Blaine - ,
has defended our commerce against the
unjust and sellish prejudice of foreign.
nations and shown that the attacks up 7
on some of our chief articles of expori,
- Were witikl'ut reason. It ,has also a's
serted very broadly and positively the
right and duty of this Government to
protect, its. naturalized citizens, and to
claim for them from foreign countries
the same recognition given 'to native
horn Americans. This reasseration of
the American doctrine of citizenship,
which had Ulm] somewhat into tiliey
euce of late. may have important diplo
matic results. .
The Treasury Department, under
Mr. Windom, has successfully solved
the problem of funding the five_ and'
six per cent bonds—a problem - over
which the lute .Democratic Congress'
argued and quaireied all last winter
without coming to any conclusion.
Mr; Windom's practical business sense
speedily- opened a way
. to the retire
ment of all the high interest bonds, and
to the saving of many millions of mo ,
iiey. The action of the Treasury has
commanded the approval of all business
interests at home and the admiration of
the finaucies of Europe.
The-Post Office Department. under
Mr. James, has exposodtand broken np
poerful- conspiracy for ploadering
the Treasury, which had. its defenders
in Congress and its paid agents in
more than one of the public offices at
the capital. Tt►e discovery of the
Star Route frauds and the new econo-,
mies ibtroduced in the Department
... have already produced a saving of ex
penses which will ammount to over a
• millionor dollars per annum. At the
same time the efficiency of the Postal
service is being constantly improved.
Much might be said in praise of the
conduct of the other Departments.
All that the public sees and hears of
..their management is to their - credit.
'or all the Departments, however,
and for their success or failure, the
President iS — resPottsible. To him as
_ well as to his Ministers belongs the
credit of'tho good work done in the
vario6 branches of, the Executive
service. He is, moreover, entitled to
high and special praise for firmly man
taining, in spite of open assaults and
the insidious undermining of powerful
partyinfluences, the constitutional pre-
rogatives of , his office. - By his course he
has struck a death-blow to the twin
evils of our, politics—State bossilm
and Senatorial courtesy.
Let slreheads, schemers,_patronage
triongers and the baffled adherents of
broken rings rave as much as they like
at General Garfield's Administration.
The people judge it •by its deeds.
Their verdict is, "Well done"; their
advice is, Go ehead."—.Y. Y. Tribune.
Judge Tan Alstyne on the Law
and the Constitution.
-An Albany telegram 'of June . 20
says: In charging - the Grand. Jury,
Judge Van Alstyne said: - Perhaps it
becomes me, at this time, 'to call .'your
.attention to annother class . of offences,
regarding which I am not '_specially
called upon to charge you . , but time
may demand, -- -and more than justify
that which I' say. There. have been
upon the statue books for some time,
laws in regard to the acceptance of
gratuities or considerations foi official,
acts on the part, of public officers.
The Judge then read from the statueti
and constitution, and said that if there
is any thing in the" intensification of
crime by the . act of the
and the almost unanimous voice of the
people, you have it in the statute I have
read and the'provisions of the constitu
tion. Now ; if rumor is to be relied
upon, these provisions of the law, and
this section of the constitution, haVe
been violated lately within our county.
Were it not that these statements have
gone broadcast'? not only throughout
the limitsof e State, but in every
corner off . e country and every corner
where people speak the English - lan
guage, perhaps I should not feel the
occasion resting upon to call your at

Of American institutions are rejoicing
at Mr. Conkiing's attempt to discredit
his opponents by the charge of -bri

catalogue of crime, one meaner in -: de

changed within a few years; in some
respects. Ido not believe one citizen

all the qualities which would subject,

instrument for the purpose of bribery.
In pursuing this inquiry - you do not
watt to be partial or hesitating. If
those hOlding highhipositions felt it a
duty to announce the fact that a crime
of this character is existing, bring those
men before you and find out what they
know about it. If they are compelled
to admit they have been telling what

A Washington telegram to the Phila.
Press June 27 Says: The situation- in
Virginia is at present one of the most
'prominent topics of conversation here
and interest in is largely kept alive
by the-delegatiOns that are continually
rushing in from that • State to give the
President "that disinterested advice
which springs from pure Republicanism
and friendship for his AdminiStration,"
as some of them say. Of course this
advice is never twice Ake and is too
often-dictated by the political ambition
of the parties giving it. The meeting
here a day or two since of a large
delegation in favfr of coalition has
re-'awakened interet in that side of the
question, and consequently a
of officials have aired their views upon
the subject with considerable freedom . .
However ill-advised such a step may
be, according to General Wickham,
and Misers. Dezendorf and-Jorgensen,
the fact cabhot be denied that the 'ma
jority of prominent:. Government offi
cials,are strong believers in coalition.
They look upon the movement as an
lopportnnity to forward Republican
principles which should by no 'means
'be allowed by the .Republican .party to
go unimproved. Take. for example
the Case of Hon. Greene B. Raum,
Commission& of Internal Reqnue.
Last year Mr. Raum, hearing thlt his
Inspector at Petersburg, Van Aucken,
was inclining toward the. Readjuster
party, wrote him a letter
that the best interests of the. Republi
can party could not be subserved by a
recognition of the Readjuster party,
and advising him, if te still
that way, to send in. his, recognition.
This year Mr.. Baum is' strongly in
favor of the coalition of Republicans
- and Readjtisters. • lie explains his
apparant inconsistaney by saying that
he has progressed, and that while last
year the Readjuster party looked like
a selfigh, personal Movement on the
part : of Mahone, this 'year he. was
satisfied that it was a worthy ally of
the Republican party; and he looked
upon *the movement .as the entering
w'edge which should split' Bourbon ism
and relieve the State from its hateful
rule. There are many other officials
who do not speak out in this way who
believe this movement to be for the
best. It is further believed that a
majority ,of the Cabinet hold opinions
in favor Of ,coalition. and when called
upon will so advise4hc President that
the movement will be encouiaged at
his hands. •

The " Star ?Mite" eases were brought
into the court here on Thursday rath
er unexpectedly. The counsel for Gen
end Brady - appeared and ;asked th e
JUdge that the Government be requir•
ed to present its case immediately, and
that the Grand Jury be-instructed to
proceed immediately to the consideraj,
tion of , the charges. Col. Cook, the
'Government prosecutor in the case, and
to wiom the action of Brady's counsel,
wasa complete _surprise, happened to
be in the Court room at the time, - and.
immediaiely entered . a protest claiming
that-the government had not yet com
pleted its evidence and could not e even
with the greatest dispatch bathe matter
of hunting over records until Septem
ber, and asked that the cases be post
poned - until that. time. The Court
granted the request. General. Bra
dy, it , may be said, took this ac
tion because of the neWspaper talk
concerning his connection -with the'
frauds. The government is pro
ceeding very cautiously in the court for
evidence:and thmigh there is great ob
jection to the subordinates who- are
conducting the search, there is no doubt
that they will get at the bottom faCts
in every case.. It is, however, thought,
by some, that the idea of Gen. Brady
was simply to get their presentation of
the case, before theloublic withoutop
portunity for reply.
The presence of both President
Garfield and General-Grant at Long
Branch, and the fact that up to yester
day the two gentlemen had not met
personally, has given rise to much talit
. Democrats, of -an intention on
the part -of the General, - to give the
Presideqt a slight. . The truth is that
General grant has been at Long Branch
but two , evenings, going to New
York in the day' time for business, and
returning late. He would, have call—
ed, either night, but, wasi under -the
Dression that the President was out.
l e General has - announced hisintention
or calling before the President greturns
to this city. i The . rumors of personal
-disagreement between these' gentlemen
may as well be dispelled. •

Adak county is in the south-west

lies between the C. B. 8: Q.. R. R. on
the south, and the R. I. Sc rileifil3 R. R.
on the north, with a branch road of the
C. B. &'.Q. running -from Creston on
tbe latter road to Fontanelle in the
center of the county, with a road in
prospective running from St. Louis,
Mo., to Storm lake in the north-west
part of the State, which will run through
the center of the county which will give
- all the R. R. facilities the county wants.
The. Company expect to commence
work at once ou the road. Land can
1 1 be bought (raw Prairie) from seven to
twelve and one-half dollars per acre,

be raised in Penna, with less labor and
with the least wear and tear of tools
teams, harness and wagon and muscle,
no atones and stumps to contend with,
and no Canada thistles to fight and fret
over. Cora, hogs; caattle and sheep,
is what pays best, and three head o -
either of these animals can be raised 'as
cheaply here as one can there in. Penna.
for this reason. Hay is only worth the
cutting, and Timothy produces from two
to three tons to the acre. Shelled corn
from fifty to one hundred bushels-per
acre, and one man and team, can tend
from fifty to seventy-five acres through
the season. No o.:St' s is required to

.YOur denunciation of the Roosters
who have done so much in the past : to
bring discredit upon the Republican
party initradford county, seems to
meet with - the apprOval of the adhe
rents of the party in !general. The
mass of Republican's are tired and
diSgisted with the supremacy which
this eleuient has attained, and desire
to see the party freed from an incubus
which for a long time has weighed heav
ily upon IL Hence this is' auspi-
cious time in which to call the atten
ion of the entire party to the schemes
both past and pres6nt, which have ena
bled these disreputable hucksterS in
politics to get such ;a firm hold upon
the party machinery..' The time ,has
coine when the methods by which nom-
nations are secured must be frank and
open. The interests of the people
must no longer be made the subject of
trafic and trade by men who in the
past have been known to conspire to-
Tether for such disreputabke purposes.
Now in case some• looker should
obtain a place, on the Fall ticket it
might seem hard to vote for some oth
er man, and yet that would. be -thel
proper thing 'to' do. No excuse can
justify a Republican in voting for any
corruptionist who' may manage to sat.l=
dle himself upon • the. party.• Jtr is to
be. hoped, however,. itbat a ticket corn
.posed of fait and honorable men,•may
be nominated, when there will be no
necessity of 'bolting any of the noini;
nations ; but in no wise should the
Republicans . of the -county
any but honest nominations.
The main argumeut for pursuing
such a coarse in regard to the party
tricksters, is found in the necessity of
• the case. The Republican . party as' 4
political organization has not yet com
'Acted its work. It is still the party of
the people's choice, and in consequence
4=4 the purifiCatiorr now in progress •by
the overthrow of ,Cameronisni in - Pen
sylvania, and .Conklingism in .New
York,, it : is constantly gaining new - ad ;
herents. The great majority of young
men on attaining their majority, enter
.the ranks of this party. They are led
to associate themselves with this in
preference to any other political organ
ization by the fact that, for the past
twenty-five years the Reptibliean par-
ty has been closely identified with all
the great movements of progress and
reform, and has resiSted to the tud, all
attempts to destroy the supremacy of
the Federal ( government,mkt! thus
. weaken its powers. Its recall is a
bright page in American history. But
past virtues will not-atone for paesent
sins: Purity in politics must be the
watchword of - the hour. But there
can be no purity where the rooster elc
ment predominates. For this reason,
l'th.n r let there 'be: a plain out-spoken
war made upon all manner of ciorcup

corruptionists of the worst (kind, and'
