REPUBLICAN CO UNTY COMMITTEE MEET
The members of the Republican County Cen
tral (Committee of Lincoln County are hereby
called to meet at the court house in North Platte
on Tuesday. Aujrust 2d 18S7, at 2 p. m., for the
purpose of issuing a call for a Republican Coun
ty convention, agreeing upon a basis of represen
tation thereto, and for the transaction of such
other business as may come before the com

The thick cuticle of President
Cleveland has been penetrated twice
lately by public opinion, once in the
matter of returning the captured
flags and the second time in regard
to his St. Louis visit. In the latter
case he says that the feeling of the
ex-soldiers against him is based on
certain official acts, meaning the
veto of the pension bills. In this
Cleveland is "away off the base."
A large majority of the old soldiers
do not complain at the exercise of
the Teto power in these cases; but
they do complain at the needlessly
offensive and insulting language in
which many of them are couched.
In these he has not only shown the
contempt in which he holds the
members of the Grand Army, but
on other numerous occasions he has
shown that his sympathies were
against them. When Jake Thomp
son died he honored the traitor and
disgraced the flag by having it
displayed at half mast over the in
terior department, but when ex-
vice-nresiaent wneeier died no
notice was taken of the event
More than half of the principal
offices are filled by ex-confederates,
in many cases Union soldiers being
turned out to make room for them
In fact he has improved every op
portunity to show his contempt for
the soldiers who tought under the
stars and stripes and to exalt those
who espoused the confederate cause
The G. A. R.'s do not like these
things, and when he was invited to
review them at St. Louis without
their solicitation, they naturally
protested, notwithstanding he would
carry with him the high office of
President, which they are bound to
respect at all times. it is proper
to say here that the G. A. li. s have
no personal ill feeling or malace
towards ex-confederate soldiers;
they honor them for honesty and
bravery; indeed they would honor
them less had their bravery been
less and unworthy or American
soldiers: but tney do detest a
coward and a copperhead a man
who in the strength of his youth
did all in his power to make the
war a failure, and when elevated to
the high office of President scoffs
at and insults the soldiers who pre
served the nation.

menting: on our remarks last week
in regard to Mr. Sherman says
"All this may be said of Sherman
with truth, and not a word deroga
tory of Blaine or any other Repub
lican whose name may be men
tioned in connection with the
Presidency. The Republican party
will act with deliberation, and, its
choice having been made, it will
stand solid behind its candidate,
t i 1 mi
wnoever ne may oe. mat is our
plank, precise!7: stand by the can
didate, whoever he may be. But
the point we wish to make is that
unfortunately there is a small frac
tion or so-called Republicans m
New York who cannot be brought
to vote for Mr. Blaine, hi a vital
and close state liKe JNew lork, we
cannot afford to take any chances.
It is a conservative estimate that
more persons were killed and
maimea in celebrating the glorious
Fourth than at the first battle of
the war, Bull Run.
The trouble with the above item
from the State Journal is that it is
not a "conservative estimate," un
like the usual statements of that
paper, being far from the truth.
But supposing it were true?
Haven't we got plenty of persons?
Can't we afford to kill and maim a
thousand or two for the glorious
Fourth's sake? Let us continue to
celebrate in the old fashion way.
The modicum of danger is what
adds zest to the pleasure.
A sign in county politics that
augurs well is the absence of per
sonal ill feeling among candidates.
While there are a number of can
didates for nomination for Sheriff
and Treasurer on the Republican
ticket, they all speak well of each
other, and each is ready to pull off
his coat and roll up his slevees to
work for his apponent after the
nomination is made. That's the
kind of spirit to manifest, and it
The Republican State Conven
tion is called to meet in Lincoln
Wednesday October 5th at 8 p. m.
Lincoln county is entitled to six
delegates. The Tribune will pub
lish the call in due time.
We have received a catalogue
containing information in regard
to the State University. Conrad
Frederick Scharmann is the only
student from North Platte. Any
one desiring a copy of this catalo

The Republican Judicial Central
Committee of this district has been
called to meet at Kearney, on the
30th of this month, the object
being to call a convention to nomi
nate a Judge. The people have al
ready renominated Judge Hamer,
and the work of the convention
will be simply to confirm the nomi
nation. J. I. Nesbitt is the mem
ber of the committee from Lincoln
Some one is trying to start a
Conkling boom. Had Conkling
taken off his coat as he should
have done and given Blaine a
hearty support, Grover Cleveland
never wTould have occupied the
White House. However much we
admire genius, we have no use for
sneaks in time of action. The im
perious statesman from New York
is politically a dead duck.
Jeff Davis's tale about the gov
ernor of Pennsylvania pardoning a
convict from the penitentiary dur
ing the war on condition that the
desperado should go to Richmond
and'assassinate the president of the
confederacy, is flatly denied by ex
governor Curten, the war governor,
now a good Democrat and member
of Congress. The feeble old relict
of the confederacy has probably al
lowed an image of his imagination
to become to him a fact.
It seems that the anarchists have
given up all hopes of being granted
a new trial, but crediting recent
rumors, the general public does not
share in the opinion. Funds are
now being raised to procure signa
tures to a petition asking the
Governor to commute the sentence.
The managers of the anarchists'
cause are working their game for
all it is worth, and thousands of
hard-working dupes will contribute
