WEDNESDAY, MARCH 14, 1894.
Democratic prosperity has reached
Texas, where a big cotton mill cost
ms $500,000 was sold for S30,000.
It has been suggested that phi
losopher Henry George write
another book descriptive of Cleve
land's second regime and entitle it
'Progress Toward Poverty."
Senator Maxdebsok" has intro
duced a bill to pension Gen. Thayer
in an amount not less than 8100 per
month. The General deserves and
needs such a pension, but it is doubt
ful if the bill passes.
Having been forced to abandon
the sugar refinery scheme, the union
depot, and the Platte canal scheme,
Omaha is now counting on a great
building boom this season. We
hope it may materialize.
The great religious revivals being
held in several of the strongly dem
ocratic states augur well for the re
publican party. When a man be
comes converted to Christianity he
generally deserts the democratic
party and becomes a. republican.
The veteran editor of the New
York Sun, in speaking of the Omaha
youth who proposes tn inaugurate
an epoch ot long distance poultry
pedestrianatmg by driving a dozen
chickens overland to California,
says it is better to be such a ninny
"than a populist or a cuckoo."
The tariff has been badly mutilat
ed by the senate committee, and a
raise on the dutiable articles been
made. In addition sugar, iron and
coal has been taken off the free list
and a small dutv imposed. It is now
said that the fate of the bill in the
senate depends on the stand which
the populist senators will take.
It is believed that two sets of state
'and congressional officers will be
nominated by the divided democracy
in Texas, and this may result in the
election of republican congressmen
in two or three districts. When
Texas begins to send republican rep
resentatives to Washington it is not
unreasonable to expect an early dis
solution of the earth.
All of the spring elections
throughout the country thus far,
when; has been any test of political
- strength show great republican
crams. Pennsylvania takes the lead
with a earn of 323,000, and the
totals thus far reported show a trifie
more than 300.000. Cleveland's plu
rality in 1892 was 379,000 which is
already as good as wiped out.
The republican congressional com
mittee of this district met at Kear
ney last evening, but we are not ad-

Tisea as tne action lanen m rearu
to holdinff the convention, it is
hoped, however, that the date set will
permit of a lengthy canvass, as tne
district is verv larse in area, and a
short campaign does not allow a can
didate to visit all sections of the
Matt Daugiierty, of Keith coun
t. and chairman of the republican
cn mission al committee, is consid
ered by raarv 88 a P0?sie candidate
for congress from this district. Matt
is well qualified for the position, his
republicanism is of the proper stripe,
and would prove a very hard-working
champion of the peoples' inter
ests. However, we have not learned
as to whether Mr. Daugberty would
consent to be a candidate.
Uxcle Dick OoLESBYsaid that the
business of this country was so great
that it was all the experienced repub
lican statesmen could do to mauage
it, and it would suffer if the inexpe
rienced democrats should take con
trol. The number of business men
who now agree with TJncle Dick, but
did not two years ago, is enough to
give him tne reputation of being a
great and good and true prophet.
But Uncle Dick simply knew the
democratic party better than did the
voters of two yeare ago.
TriE second trial of Daniel Cough
lin on the charge of complicity in
the murder of Dr. Cronin came to a
close Thursday by the return of a
verdict of acquittal. While the evi
dence was purely circumstantial the
public, and especially those who had
read the testimony closely, had rea
son to expect that the jury would
either convict or fail to agree; an
acquittal was unexpected. Coughlin
ha escaped the meshes of the law,
but in the eyes of a great majority
of the people he stands branded with
the aiarkof Cain.
luCK McColl, a gentleman whom
The Tribune would like very much
to ste nominated as the republican
gubernatorial candidate, was in
Kearney the other day, and in reply
to an interrogatory by a Hub repre
reeentative said "1 am not in it. It
has become customary in the state
IwKen an incumbent in that office
"has. given entire satisfaction to
honor him with a renomiuation.
This I think will be done. Crounse
has made an excellent executive and
J think he will succeed himself.
Further than this I have nothing to
sav." But it does not end there.
Governor Crounse will probably not
be a candidate for a re-election; at
lpasfc Tom Maiors' earnest efforts,
which he is at present making for
the nomination would indicate such.
If the Governor desires to be a can
didate for re-election we believe he
should be given the nomination; but
if not, western Nebraska should be
given the candidate, and papular
Jack McColl should be the man. It
is full time that the western part of
-the state should.demand recognition
at the hands of the leaders in the
eastern part of the state.
An influential member of the
democratic national committee was
asked by a democratic congressman
upon what platform it wonld be best
for him to run next fall, and the
committeeman is said to have ans
wered: "That simple platform
among the democrats of your dist
rict should be simply opposition to
the Cleveland administration. You
need not be specific as to the details.
That broad declaration is enough.
I do not know of any other platform
upon which a democrat can hope to
stand this fall with any possible
chance of success. And it is by no
means certain that that will dp you
any good. The administration is
gone. The only point of doubt yet
is whether it has carried the demo
cratic party down with it. Person
ally, I very much fear it has."
Not one case has come to light in
Nebraska where alleged frauds of
republican officials have been discov
ered and corrected by their populist
successors. A wail of corruption!
fraud! turn the rascals out! swept
over the state, and a good many hon
est, faithful republicans were let out
to make room for eager, hungry,
howling populists. But when they
were elected there is not a case on
record where they discovered the
crookedness complained of, or if they
discovered, it where they corrected it.
On the other hand no end of venali
ty, peculation and embezzlement
have been perpetrated by the popu
lists in their brief authority. County
after county has been defrauded and
many of them have already repudia
ted the self-styled reformers and re
turned to their first love. York
Dr. Geo.L. Miller, ex-editor of
the Omaha Herald when it was
an oft-quoted paper has been ap
pointed customs collector for the
port of Omaha. The great Grover
threw overboard the applications of
the other half-dozen pie petitioners
and appointed the genial doctor
upon his own motion. The friends
of Dr. Miller wnre urging him for
the vacancy in the interstate com
merce commission made vacant bv
the death of J. W. McDill. It is
fortunate that the president did not
make the mistake of advancing this
life-time apologist for corporate ex
tortion to'fche position desired for
him by his friends. He appeared
to be ever ready to crook the preg
nant hinges of the knee that thrift
might follow fawning. At any
rate he has been dubbed the Nestor
of Nebraska democracy by his more
zealous friends, whatever that may
In commending the action of the
Catholics of Huntington, Ind., in
making no resistance tc an A. P. A.
lecturer a few dsys ago, the Inter
Oceau says: "This is a free coun
try. In it a man has a right to de
nounce the Catholic form of religion,
he also has the right to denounce
any Protestant form, yea, he even
has the right to denounce all forms
of religion, aud religion itself. Col.
Ingersoll makes a trade of deriving
the inspiration of the Bible and of
doubting the existence of, a God
Yet no Catholic ever arrayed a mob
against Ingersoll. It seems a strange
thing that men should be so easy
while God is blasphemed, aud uneasy
when the Pope is ridiculed. If Cath
olicism be founded on Christian law
and be evolved through christian
love, it will endure against all the.
shocks of ribaldry and all the blows
of argument. The founder of Chris
tianity bade his too ardent, disciple
'Put up thy sword within its sheath.'
A religion that cannot tolerate op
position is lacking of the first ele
ment of Christianity."
The Tariff Situation.
It now looks as if the senate
would pass the Wilson bill, after
amending it to sjch an extent as to
placate the so-called "conservatives"
of that body. The evident policy
is to let the bill be amended almost
indefinitely any way to get it
through the senate. The free
traders could well afford to let the
few protection democrats of that
body tinker away at it to suit their
utmost bent, no matter if it were
so radically and generally changed
that its own father would not rec
ognize it. Such amendment and
passage in the upper house of con
gress would be iu itself a barren
The game now being played is
salmon not trout fishing. The dis
ciple of Izsak Walton who angles
for the nimble trout must land his
fish as soon as he feels the twitch
ing of his tackle. To dally is to
lose. But in kilhug salmon hours
may elapse between the secure
hooking of the victim and the final
act. The novice at the sport is
likely to find that haste spoils his
fun." A Fabian policy wins. In
killing protection the free traders
would run no small risk of an ad
verse vote in the senate if they per
sisted in ignoring the amendments
of the sugar, coal and iron men on
the democratic side of the senate.
When once passed on. however, the
reference of the whole subject to a
conference committee will follow
as a matter of parliamentary neces
sity. That conference committee
will consist of a large preponder
ance of rabid free traders, and will
undoubtedly report a bill agreeing
for the most part with the original
house bill. Then the real test will
come. The "salmon" will be at the
end of his play and must be either
lauded or lost. No amendment
will be in order at that stage of the
proceedings. The senators from
New York, including Brioe, New
Jersey, Maryland, Louisiana and
Alabama will have to take the gaff
or break away.
Senator Hill said Saturday to the
delegation of business men who
waited upon him at bis hotel in
New York that he was in favor of
, protection to the extent of the dir
j ference between European and
I American wages. That is the re-
ublican doctrine pure and simple.
ut will he have the courage of his
convictions when he feels the part
gaff? The general impression is

How You Can Assist Them.
As a great number of our people the past six months have felt very
much the hard times that exist, and believing- that there are a great
many in our city and in the surrounding country that are justly entitled
to aid from all who are able to help, we have decided upon a plan by
which you all can help and not be any the loser. "We propose to set
apart, for relief day March 24th. On that day we have decided to give
ten per cent of the cash sales to the Ladies' Aid Bureau for distribution
among the poor and needy that are justly entitled to receive aid. Please
.remember that prices in all departments will remain the same, that our
stock is large and new, every department is full, and all goods are guar
anteed to give satisfaction. Bring 3Tour neighbors with you on that
day, if they have not been trading with us. Send word to all j-our
friends that they may all deserve thanks for helping swell the sales on
that da' and by thus doing will be instrumental in helping a great many
that deserve help. Do all in your power to make that day's sales for tts
large, the larger the sales the more we have to give to the poor. We
give this sale because we deem it right and just, and as an appreciation
of the past patronage that we have received from the-people of North
Platte and vicinity. We thank yoa one and ail kindly for the same and
hope that rou may still continue with us, as our past year's dealings
have been very pleasant to us. Do not forget the date of the sale.
