STEVENS & BARE, Editors and Props.
SATURDAY. JUNE 9. 1888.
Some small bore democratic papers
are publishing the resolutions passed
by the late Republican state conven
tion, with the additions made by
the Omaha Herald. They evidently
think the forgery will make votes.
The Gazette-Journal of Hastings
favors Gresham and Phelps for pres
idential nominees. They will make
a strong team and be sure of elec
tion, as would several other combi
nations. The grand aggregation of Demo
cratic managers met at St. Louis
and put up Cleveland for President
as per previous arrangement. Thur
man of Ohio was placed on the tail
of the ticket. Henry Watterson,
the worst free-trader in the land,
was made chairman of the coinmit
tee on platform, but that document
has not yet reached the far west.
We hate received a circular from
a set of gentlemen styling them
selves anti-saloon republicans, with
a request to give our opinion on the
subject. The Republican party now
has in hand an important work
the election of a president of this
United states. No side issues that
are likely to endanger the success
of this work can be tolerated by the
Republican press. Cranks who are
trying to force such issues at the
present time are enemies of the party
and allies of democracy.
Oregon fired the first gun of the
campaign of 1888 on Monday, and
the shot was a bad one tor Mr.
Cleveland and the Democratic party.
There was a straight Republican
issue on Congressman, the Republi
cans favoring protection and the
Democrats standing by the Presi
dent s message. On this straight
issue the Republican majority was
about 4,000, against a plurality of
1,635 in 1886. The Democratic
hope of controlling the United
States Senate rested mainly on se
curing a Democratic majority in
in the Oregon Legislature elected
on Monday, of the ninety mem
bers the Republicans elected sixty-
six, a gam of thirteen members over
the Legislature elected in 18g6. The
result of this Congressional and
Legislative election fixes the status
of Oregon for this year. In June
1884, the Republican vote on Con
gressman was 25,699, and in Nov
ember or the same year the Kepubli
canvote for Blaine was 26,860. The
State is strongly Republican on the
issue that will be prominent in the
Presidential campaign, and as goes
Oregon so goes the other Pacific
States. The Oregon election is like
a. slap in the face to Mr. Cleyeland
and his St. Louis Convention.
The Republicans who bolted Mr.
Blaine the great majority of them
were not influenced by the tariff
question, and will gladly return into
the Republican fold if they are sat
isfied with the cadidate. A majority
of them would, we think, support
either of the Republicans now pro
minently talked of for the nomina
tion; a greater number of them
would probably support General
Gresham than would support . any
other candidate. But this fact is
. not due to any lack on General
Gresham's part of fidelity to Repub
lican principles or Republican can
didates, but to the general impres
sion that prevails respecting his
purity of character, his fitness for
the office, and the circumstance that
while he has been prominent in
public life there is nothing in his
record calculated to give rise to tin
favorable criticism. Milwaukee
THe third party prohibs raised
last week quite a little dust at In
dianapolis. They expect to muster
enough strength to elect Mr. Cleve
land again, in which event they
would rejoice with exceeding great
joy. The success of their own can
didate, of course, is merely a secon
dary consideration. A few days ago
one of the leading prohibition ora
tors said: "With strenuous efforts
New Hampshire, Massachusetts,
Rhode Island, Michigan and Ohio
will be lost to the republicans this
year." Of course what is lost to the
republicans, is a gain, to the demo
crats, and for this result this orator
advises that "strenuous efforts" be
made. The average prohibitionist
has a queer way of reasoning, as
shown oy his great rejoicing over
the success of rum democracy
through his efforts.
Sarah J. Overton,a convict at the
state penitentiary, comitted suicide
yesterday morning by cutting her
throat from ear to ear. She was re
ceived at the penitentiary on the
12th of last September from Custer
county, under a twenty-five years
sentence for killing her husband,
whose head she blew off on the 4th
of July last, with a shotgun loaded
with buckshot. When received at
the penitentiary she gave her age as
forty-four years, but it is the
general opinion that she was a
woman of about fifty. The testi
monyof all the witnesses showed
that Mrs. Overton was an unruly
and vicious convict and was contin
ually quarrelling with the other con
victs. She had always refused to
work has not been employed a day
during her confinement in the pen
itentiary. On Saturday morning she
was placed in a cell on account of
iter Tiolent temper, during a fit of
which she was tearing up the sheets
and other furnishings of her bed.
From the testimony of her fellow
convicts it was learned that she had
frequently threatened to kill herself,
saying she" would never serve out
her sentence. This was unknown
to the officials.
The Washington Post, Cleveland's
acknowledged organ recently drew
a picture of the scene in Paris when
Napoleon anticipated the crowning
ceremony by seizing the emblem of
Eower and placed it upon his own
ead, and proceeds: A similar scene
will occur in St. Louis on the " 8th
day June, in this year of grace, 1888.
Mr. Grover Cleveland has summoned
a national convention to re-nominate
him for the presidency of the
United States, and 820 delegates
will assemble to do his bidding.
But they will really have nothing
to do. When the time comes to
vote it will be apparent to the veri
est tyro among them that President
Cleveland has already re-nominated
himself. He is a man of destiny
and he will do as men of destiny do.
The democratic nomination is his
by right of conquest, and he will
not condescend to receive it from
any hands but his own." The scene
did occur. King Grover is his name.
We are having pleasant weather
now after so much rain and cold,
and crops are looking fine. In some
localities corn was drowned out and
will have to be replanted, but there
is time yet to do this and have a
good, crop if the season is favorable.
Being located on the Platte bottom,
we are troubled considerbly with
mosquitoes and gnats. Just at- pre
ent they are raising bumps.
Tramps are plentiful and in almost
every case they are remarkably
healthy individuals. As they are
of no particular good to this coun
try, why not send them as missiona
ries to some cannibal island? What
a feast they would make for the
Mr, and Mrs. A. M. Stoddard
gave a dance on last Friday night
which was largely attended. If you
think we do not have a grand time
at our dances you are very much
mistaken. The one Friday night
was one that will long be remember
ed by those who attended.
T. W. Anderson has a potato
patch that takes the premium in
this section. This vegetable bids
fair to be a big crop this year.
Enough said. Will write you

There was one pleased man in
O'Fallon last Sunday. It was W
H. Dudley. The cause of his joy
was a telegram announcing that the
injunction on the bridge bonds was
dissolved. We did not see Mr. D.
jump up and down, nor did we hear
him utter any Comanche yells; but
we will not swear as to what he did
when he got started for home. We

Tho modes of death's approach are varions

arise from a diseased condition of tho liver
which in performing its functions finding that
it cannot dispose of tho bile through the ordi
