-MEETING OF THE REPUBLICAN STATE
A meeting of the Republican
State Central Committee will be
held at the Millard hotel in Omaha
on Tuesday, June 29th, at 7:30

E. E. Brown, a member of the
senate from Lancaster county and
y one or the best lawyers in the
state, has been brought out as a
candidate for U. S. senator. We
believe he is a straight-out conserv
ative republican and as such would
have a tendency to unite the dis
cordant elements of the party. He
is one of Nebraska's best men and
would be a wonderful improvement
upon the jumping-jack that now
misrepresents the people and state
in the senate.
Some time since we notified the
Omaha Herald that we were with
it in procuring the abolition of the
surveyor general's office. The
good doctor hasn't called on us jet,
and we don't see that he is making
any material progress either. Per
haps he scorns our kindly offer;
but we take no offense at that
we are still ready to give him a lift.

Holdrege is entitled to a boom on
its own merits, but we serve notice
on its good citizens and all others
that when the capital is moved we
shall insist in placing it in the geo
graphical center of the state, which
is at Broken Bow, Custer county.

CLOSE CONGRESSIONAL, DISTRICTS.
There are 325 members of the
present congress. Following the
returns made at the last election of
congressmen, there will probably be
from one-third to one-half of the
members of the Forty-ninth who
will be sent back by their constitu
ents to the Fiftieth congress.
There are 186 members of the Forty
ninth who were members of the
Forty-eighth congress. The 325
members of congress are appointed
as follows, the delegations from the
several states being as shown by the

A closer analysis of the composi
tion of these 325 Congressional dis
tricts reveals some facts of the high
est interna to both the gret politi
cal parties' of the United States.
There have been several deaths of
members of the present congress,
but these have - not. .materially
changed, the relations of the party
majority or minority in congress.
It is sufficiently close a statement to
make that there are 185 democrats
and 140 republicans in the present
house. This is a gain of twenty
five republicans and a loss of fifteen
democrats, from the preceding the
Forty-eighth congress. There are
thirty-two doubtful districts where
the contests of this year will be
waged for the most part. These
districts will more than turn the
election congressional7 the coming
November. The only southern
states involved are Tennessee. Ken
tucky and Virginia. There are few
"doubtful" districts in the south.
In Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Louis
iana, South Carolina aud Mississippi
there was either no opposition to
the democratic candidates for con
gress in 18S4, or else the vote was
overwhelmingly democratic, which
was practically the same thing. 1 he
close districts are in states where the
freest of frf e speech is permitted,
and not only permitted but protect
ed, and where the growth of the
people, their morality, the absence
of illiteracy, the presence of well
conducted and well endowed schools,
churches and colleges, are all guar
antees of the freedom enjoyed by
their citizens. With harmony and
good nominations three-fourths of
these "doubtful" districts can easily
be made solidly republican, and the
control of congress can be restored
to those to whom the people so long
intrusted the country.
The "Grand Island Independent's
jrenthusiann ipr the -noinination of
rGeneral Thayer for governor is'nolt
inspired" altogether by Mr. Hedde's
admiration of that sterling old
statesman and soldier. The Thayer
boom, so far as Hedde, Rose water
and that class of political shysters
are concerned is a gilded bait by
which it is expected that the real
friends and admirers of Thayer will
be attracted like moths into the
Yan Wyck candle. It is not the in
tention of these kid gloved farmers
to favor Gen. Thayer, even by a
friendly word much less br anv sub
stantial help, except so far as
such a course will bring strength to
the best farmer of them all, Van
Wyck. One needs only to use half
an eye to see that these self-constituted
leaders of the Farmers' Al
liance have but one single object in
view and that is to return Van
Wyck to the senate and to accom
plish this object they would build
hovels in heaven and palaces in hell,
and in the end would assign their
tools to both these abodes with
equal facility. We have never be
lieved for an instant that the lead
ers of either faction of the republi
can party wanted Gen. Thayer for
governor. The Itosewatcr crowd
can nominate but cannot elect him,
and the straight-outs can elect him
if the- chose to do so, but have no
disposition to even nominate him.
The fact is that General Thayer
has no more chance becoming gov
ernor of Nebraska than he has" of
becoming Czar of Russia, and any
support that the Bee or Independent
may give him is designed to flatter
the old soldier element into a sup
port of ticket the Rosewater crowd
may put up later. Broken Boic
Mr Randall, or any one like
him, would be "snowecf under" by
the ballots of a presidential election.
It would be hard to pick out a de
cent republican who would not beat
him so badly that his nomination
would seem like ancient history in a
month after election. We don't
expect to persuade Mr. Randall of
this fact, but if there any thought
less Democrats who are inclined to
side with him, they would do well
to reflect upon it before too late.
New York Times.
Mr. Gladstone's manifesto to the
voters of Midlothian which is the
key note of the home rule campaign,
has stirred up the gall of the tories
and bolting liberals very considera
bly. They especially" resent his
declaration that the" people must
now make their choice between co
ercion and home rule. They deny
that they have ever claimed that
coercion was their alternative. But
their failure to say further what
they .do propose in the place of co
ercion or home rule is a little too
.insignificant. They had better
hunr up with their ulan. if thev
have any, for the restoration of or
der and a fair degree of content in
Ireland. If the combined opposi
tion have any plan it is high
time that they disclose it. But
really Mr. Gladstone tells a
a solemn truth. It is coercion or
home rule and "nothing shorter."
The falling of showers of fish
during heavy rains has often been
attested and as often denied and
flouted. But at this moment there
sits upon The Journal's desk a glass
jar containing six lively little fish,
each about an inch long, gathered
up at Harvard Tuesday morning,
thousands having fallen the night
before during a shower and found
refuge in the gutters and pools.
There is no doubt of the facts in
this case. The little fellows
were evidently drawn up
from some permanent body of wa
ter, conveyed to a distance and
tumbled down .it Harvard. The
specimens at hand appear to be none
the worse for their usage. Mr.
Joseph Emery, The Journal's route
agent, secured them and brought
them to the city. The variety is not
known, but they appear identical
with the minnows to be found in
abundance in all the streams of the
state. State Journal.
People who talk about using
bloodhounds to track Apaches in
Arizona don't know what they are
talking about. Dogs in that arid
country give out sooner than men
and horses. .Dogs require water,
and would perish in a campaign
where men and horses would es
cape. Besides, often for fifty miles
at a stretch the whole surface of
the country is covered with cactus,
through which a dog could not
travel without torture and ruin to
his feet. Dogs might be hauled
along in wagons and turned loose
where the trail is lost, but for such
use as could be made of them in or
dinary countries the scheme would
be wholly impracticable. Inter
Barnum's circus always attracts
a large and fashionable audience
here, but it has this year been
thrown in the shade by Buffalo
Bill's Indians, vacqueros, cowboys,
horses, elk, and buffalos. There
were eighty-three Indians, Sioux
and Pawnee, and last Saturday they
were taken through the capitol,
wearing their newest blankets and
most valuable ornaments. It was
a curious sight to witness these
four score red skins, painted and
plumed and blanketed, gaze from
the gallery of the senate upon the
pow-wow on the floor beneath, and
the' were evidently impressed with
the great council of their white
fathers. As for the show, it is a
realistic panorama of frontierlife,
in which . there is daring riding,
and a wholesome consumption of
blank cartridges. Washington let

A San Francisco house sent a
man to Nebraska with the instruc
tions to buy all the eggs in the
State and send them right through.
The man came and set to work. The
third day he shipped four cars, the
next day six and after resting three
da-s had just chartered a train when
he received a telegram from the
house telling him to stop. They
hadn't begun to use eggs yet for
paving, and there was no other
demand likely to arise for
the next three weeks. Folks
wanting to buy what we raise in
Nebraska can't be too particular
about their orders. Custer County
The girl graduates of the Vin
cennes, Ind., high school have made
themselves famous by refusing to
receive diplomas in company with
a colored miss. Really this is most
absurd conduct on the part of the
Vincennes girls. Abraham Lin
coln settled this little matter before
they were born. If the colored
miss is entitled to her sheepskin it
proves that she is the peer of any
young lady, white, black, blue or
green, intellectually. She would
have been tvelcomed at any British
female college, and petted on ac
count of her color rather than
shunned. Such conduct, girls, is an
insult to the brave hearts that ce.'tsod
to beat for the glory of the Union.
