He was an example of what a poor boy can make of himself provided he" has the ambition and mental capacity. General Clarkson, assistant postmaster general, has tendered his resignation to President Harri son, to take effect September 1st. Mr. Clarkson proved very efficient in performing the duties of his office, as several thousand Demo cratic fourth-class ex-postmasters can testify. The Gothenburg News is now published as a tri-weekly, and is issued on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. A weekly edition of the paper will also be issued. The new venture is indicative of enterprise, but will probably deplete the office treasury to an uncomfortable ex tent. Mr. Boyd, the Democratic nomi nee for governor, is possessed of a bar'l of good proportions, which doubtless was the cause of his being chosen as the candidate of his party. By investing his surplus in the vain endeavor to be elected governor he will relieve the finan cial wants of Democratic "heelers" throughout thestate. Secretary of War Proctor has consented to make a few speeches in Nebraska this fall in favor of his friend, L. D. Richards, the Re publican candidate for governor, while the Democrats have secured the services of Roger Q. Mills, the freetnde Texan. A few speeches from Mills will insure Republican success in Nebraska this fall. The Republican congressional convention of this district, for the Duroose of nominating a candidate for congress, will be held at Colum bus, Platte county, on Sentem- ber 17. The sentiment of the committeemen was slightly in favor of Dorsey, nineteen voting for a late convention and fourteen for an early one. Congressman Dorsev was in favor of a late con- vention. The Kearney Enterprise has taken another fop, and is now making war against the prohibi- tory amendment, uan it oe possi ble that the anti-prohibs had the biggest bar'l? Opinions with a price attached do not usually carry much weight with voters, especially when the. fact is known. The Enterprise appears to be making an heroic effort to prolong: its ex- t istanee The Nebraska City Budget pub lishes a long interview with ex- Senator Van Wyck, in which he gives it out that he will not accept the nomination recently tendered him bv the independent partv of the First district. He could not discover any possible chance of being elected, and is of the opinion that Congressman Connell will be re-elected by a large majority. This is the most sensible conclu sion that the ex-senator has arrived at for a long time. In one paragraph of the platform the Democrats laud Grover Cleve land, while in another they favor "placing the silver dollar on its former footing with gold coin in our coinage law, with equal legal tender qualities." The latter of these paragraphs annuels the for mer, and vice versa. Silver has had no worse enemy in this country than Grover Cleveland, but then the Nebraska Democrats had to keep up appearances, and they in serted the silver clause in their platform in the hope that they would win a few votes therebv. Mr. Patrick Henry once sagely observed that "it was natural for man -to indulge in the illusions of hope." He did not, at the time, have the Nebraska Democracy in mind, but they have for many years furnished an exemplification of Mr. Henry's observation. There has been a general turning of hands, and a spending of boodle, and' a consumption of "spiritious influence." The file is to be gnawed again this fall, and will be followed by the usual bath of the ambitious children of destiny in the bottom of the tureen. John Sherman, it is said, stil clings to the hope that he will ye be president, lie will be oy years old in 1892, yet we have had two presidents William Henry Harri son and James Buchanan of greater age than that. Sherman has retained his mental faculties remarkably well, and the Repub licans might do worse than to make him president. The Kearney Hub savs that the congressional situation in the third i s district is sucn as to give every assurance or the election of the Republican candidate, no matter which of the present aspirants may be nominated. Thompson, the democratic candidate, is utterly un known and can not by any possi bihty cut much of a figure in the campaign. The alliance candidate, Mr. Kemm, is as little known, and the strength lving in what he rep i f .it t t resents is onset oy a piamiy appar ent lack or ability tor the position. A good Republican nomination in sures Republican success. The Australian ballot system is steadily growing in favor in the United States, and probably will ultimately be adopted by all of the states. Republicans would be 1 3 1 LI I I pieasea to see tnar, system in gen eral operation m all the states at the present time, while Democrats favor its adoption in Republican states only. It might destroy the ii - .ueraocraiic majorities m two or three states, therefore it does not receive much encouragement from that partv. The Democrats favor the law for Nebraska but are de cidedly opposed to it being adopted m JNew lork. Gen. W. G. Veazey,o Vermont, was chosen commander-in-chief of the G. A. R. at the national en campment held in Boston last week. General Veazev is at pres- I Af1t ent one or tne inter-state commerce commissioners, and has been judge of the supreme court of Vermont. His army record is first-class,he hav ing enlisted as a private and grad ually rose to a brigadier general ship. He was one of the comman ders at Gettysburg and made the famous flank assault upon Pickett's division and then upon Wilcox's division in the celebrated, attack made by Pickett on the afternoon of the third day of that battle. Keith county is entitled to the State Senator and it will be a hard job to find a better man for the office than Hon. M. A. Daugherty. He has one of the very cleanest political records . He is a staunch Republican and has always stuck ciose to tne party, but been oppos ed to all monopolies, and worked for the interest of the people. He is now engaged in stock farming in this county and is in a position to Know wnat tne people or tnis sec-: tion need. It is to the interest of every Republican voter in this dis trict to urge the nomination of Mr. Daugherty. Paxton Repub lican. A the presumptuous gentleman by name of E. M. Day, whose postoffice address is given as Oga- lalla, has issued a call for a meeting or the JKepublican central commit tee of the Thirtieth Senatorial dis trict, the meeting to be held at Ogalalla next Saturday. While Mr. Day signs himself "chairman," he has no authority whatever to call a meeting of the committee. Mr. J. E. Evans, of this city, is chairman of that committee, and presided over the meeting held in this city last Saturday, which it is safe to say will be the only one held by the committee for the pur pose of selecting a date for holding the conventions, Mr. Day is sug gestive of the proverbial govern ment mule. As an illustration of the evident desire of the Southern Democrats to have an honest ballot, we . cite the reader's attention to those Ala bama bourbons who have written a letter to Judge McDuffie, a south ern congressman, threatening him with assassination for favoring the Federal election bill. This bill is designed to correct some of the evils which exist in the south, hence the ire of those bourbons. Another illustration of the fairness of the southern Democrats is fur nished by the action of patrons of a public school at Fayette, Ala., in keeping their children at home be cause the teacher of the school had voted the Republican .ticket at the election a few days previous. Just such tactics as the above on the part of the Democrats in the south serve to keep Northern capital form being invested in those states. Poor old "outraged" South! Uncle Jerry Rusk, secretary of agriculture, has some ideas on reciprocity, and embodies them in a circular on "Agricultural Depres sion Its Causes and Remedies." This is what he says: "Accompany ing this principle of protection to the American farmer is that of re ciprocity, which should invariably be applied when that of protection is relaxed. If there are products grown to better advantage in other countries, remission of duty on which would seem to be in the in terest of a large proportion of our population, such remission should be accorded only as the result or reciprocal concession in the way of remission of duties by other coun tries on products more readily grown here. Many of those coun tries which would be specially benefited by a remission of the duty on sugar by our government would afford an excellent market for our bread-stuff and dairy and meat products were it not for the high duties imposed thereon by them. In this way, and in this way only, can our farmers be adequately protected, new markets being thus thrown open to them for those products which they can most easily and cheaply produce. THE DEMOCRATIC CONVENTION. The state convention of the Ne braska Democrats was held at Omaha last Thursday, the conven tion assembling at seven o'clock T p. m. and remaining in session throughout the night. Hon. Wm. Neville, of North Platte, and Wm. G. Hastings, of Crete, were placed in nomination for temporary chair man, and Mr. JNeviIle received 266 votes and Mr. Hastings 273. Th.e temporary organization was made permanent, and the convention ;at: once proceeded to the nomination of candidates for state offices. Hon. uanies ju. uoyo, or umaha, was nominated for governor; Dr. Alex ander Bear, of Madison county, lieutenant governor; Frank Spragtie, of Rushville, secretary of state: R. d. Wahlquist, of Hastings, auditor or puoiic accounts; w. u. Lushing, of Cass county, state treasurer: Judge Higgins, of Hall county, at- attorney general; Jacob Bigler, of Chase county, commissioner of pub lic lands and buildings; C. C. Rake- straw, ol Nebraska City, superin tendent of public instruction. There were numerous candidates for the offices, but all the nominations were made on the first ballot except that for auditor of public accounts. which required two. The platform adopted is the same old story with one addition. The convention soloranly resolved that it was opposed to the inter ference with "personal rights," and therefore condemned the prohibi tory amendment. neighborhood news. C. C. Hawkins returned from New York, Wednesday morning accompanied by Samuel Chafen, Jr. London, Eng., and Lawrence Rath- bone, New York. Mr. Chafen will take charge of the hotel and other buildings in Wellfleet. Wellfleet Standard.

Southern and eastern Perkins county was blessed with very heavy rains Monday and Tuesday even ings. About four inches cf water fell and the ground is thoroughly saturated. While too late to luake good corn crop, there will be sufficient fodder and corn to keep stock through. Strange enough, north-western Perkins received nothing but a slight sprinkle of rain on either occasion. Madrid News. A A. Stewart, of Grand Island, was arrested at Omaha by Deputy Marshal Hepfinger and Postal In spector Spooner on a charge of offering through the mails to sell "nmnn rtrrAo Qmrni.nl nnminaf. ing letters are in possession of the authorities, among them a reply to decoy letter sent by Inspector Spooner. Stewart was formerly ... . . . . ri engineer at the Commercial hotel,1 Grand Island. He has. been doing thriving business for several months. t Pursuant to call there was a rail road meeting held in the opera hall Monday afternoon. VV. Gmn was made chairman of the meeting and A. A. Sawyer secretary. Owing to the short time the meeting had been advertised, there was not a very large attendance. Every man in the house, however, expressed his willingness to vote a thirty-five thousand dollar county bond and precinct bonds if necessary, to aid in the construction of a road up this valley, providing the road-bed would be graded this fall, thereby furnishing employment for many Logan county farmers whose crops will be short.

Muskego lake is drained almost dry,'JWind lake greatly low ered, and Goose lake is now only a pond hole. The east branch is nearly dry, and in the main canal there is only about two feet of water, the. banks Ioomiug up from six to eight feet on each side. In marshes where' hay could scarcely be mowed byhand machines, mow ers are now used 'effectively. The land reclaimed which has hitherto been valueless is now worth in the neighborhood of 500,000. Ten acres of the farm of Thomas Habon, late representative in the legislature, eight miles north of Waldron, Ind., have been destroyed for farming purposes, and great holes have bean blown in the earth. The course of Flat Rock Creek has been turned up stream. Birds, snakes, rabbits, and fish were killed, while the fish, were thoroughly cooked in the heated waters. All this was caused by the upheaval of the waters. A log fire was blazing in the midst of the ten acres, when, without warning, the earth belched forth its flame; great trees were hurled skyward, and all the waters of Flat Rock' were converted to foam and steam. A vast pocket of natural gas burst forth, and the scene was beautiful to behold. The 'gas took fire and blazed fiercely up above the trees, and at times many j feet high, and continued all one day and night. Three thousand spectators viewed the phenomenon. The fire was extinguished but gas is still escaping. Some claim that other agencies save that of gas are the cause of the phenomenon, but the general conviction is that no other agency could have pro duced the effect on the water. One of the marvelous effects upon the water is that not Rock's flood has cavern since the great caverns current and a a gone gara is created: drop of Flat below the upheaval.
