The people of Adams county

haTe only one representative in the
' legislature under the new apportion
ment. Adams is a small county
twenty-four miles square with 30,
000 population. One representative
can look after the interests of so
small a territory very well. But if
they had the population and terri
tory of the west part of the State
they would have cause to kick. The
counties of Lincoln, Keith, Perkins
and Cheyenne nearly 2 hundred
miles long and over 50 broad with
over 50,000 population, have one
It cannot be denied that finan
cial and industrial prosperity or the
reverse, have eyer had considerable
to do, in the past, with the success
of political parties. "Ignorance and
neglect are the mainsprings of mis
rule" and the Democratic party
must be held responsible for much
of the business depression at the
present time. Men who were in
favor of a change four years ago
are more anxious for a change now.
Two northern states casting over
fifty electoral votes went for Dem
ocracy at the last presidential elec
tion, but are now classed with the
number which say "we have no use
for Grover." New York and In

looks as though manager Stone was
going too far, when he attempts to
draw the managers of the grievance
committee into a scheme to use
dvnamite. The public will soon
have irood reason to believe that the
the company's property has been de
stroyed at the instigation or the
manager. The stockholders should
take a hand in this investigation
and see if their interests cannot be
protected and advanced. If they don't

"F. E. B.'s" rejoinder on the
army vote question in the Telegraph
is about as weak as 'such a document
can be imagined in the language
of the street its a "dead give away."
He acknowledges what no Demo
crat aver admitted before, but
what every Republican has always
known, that the Chicago conven
tion was run by disloyal copperheads,
"whose influence was as insignifi
cant as their motives were base."
Yet F. E. B.'s candidate for Vice
President, the great and good Thur
man, was a member of that con
vention and author of a portion of
the platform. The Democratic
party has never repudiated the
action of that convention; but on
the other hand has always approved
of its nefarious work, and have im
proved every oportunity to elect its
members to positions of honor and
trust. Their motives were base,
but the Democratic party honored
them and their motives. They are
now trying to elect two copperheads
"whose motives were base to the
highest offices in the gift of this
great nation. Have they shown by
word or action that their motives
have changed since 1861?
