"WEDNESDAY, APRIL 18,1891.
Whitehead's refusal to be a can
didate throws down the bars for
lawyer Sullivan, of Broken Bow, to
step out on ibe track as a possible
candidate for congressional honors.
The candidacy of Jno. E. Evans,
of this city, for secretary of state is
meeting the hearty approval of re-
tmblicans all over the state. His
nomination can only be defeated by
unscrupulous combinations, and
these are not likely to occur.
It begins to look as though John
JJIallahea had the republican press
of the district on his side, at least
the bovs are giving him some very
neat complimentary notices. This
may be accounted for in part by
. the tact that John is an oJd news
,j A , city contemporary, if the
strain is not too great, might tell
the public wbat it considers true
republicanism, and wbat constitutes
ihe test or standard supplement
jwitb An account or the bona tide or
would-be political somersaults of its
editor during the past ten years.
July 1st is not too early for the
republican congressional convention.
This is a mighty big district and to
properly canvass it will require
several months of active rustling.
The lucky nominee must enter the
field immediately after the conven
tion and work sixteen hours a day
during the campaign.
The World Herald, in mention
ing the several men who will be
candidates in the republican con
gressional convention of this dis
trict, pronounces Henry St. Hayner
of Sidney the ablest of them all, and
characterizes him as young, vigor
ous and enthusiastic.
Some of the pops are rude enough
to declare that unless Bill Greene
of Kearney takes the Keeley cure
and stays cured they cannot give
him their support in the congres
sional convention. If Kern or Ne
ville are shrewd politicians they will
see that Greene is at once supplied
witb a few barrels of whisky and
not allowed to get outside the city
limits of Kearney.
It would not be passing strange
if, when the Majors and McColl
forces get togetber-in the coming
republican state convention and
neither hold a majority of the votes,
a third .man would step in and
""secure the nomination. There are
said to be .a number of dark horses
Jjeing groomed, among them E. A.
Cady and John Peters, with chances
favorable to the letter.
(Xne little matter which should
receive the attention of our next
legislature is a change in the law
making the office of city marshal
an elective instead of an appointive
one. If the marshal was elected
more efficient service might be ex
pected, for he would perform his
work in a satisfactory manner in
order to merit a re-election, but so
long as he is appointed bis real
worth very often cuts little figure.
It would also lift a burden from the
average mayor-elect who is besieged
by applicants for the position.
The wind which comes in from
the sand dunes is burdened with the
populist complaint that our own and
only Judge Neville should not be
nominated for congress because of
his democratic antecedents. When
the pops of Tyre and Sidon and
some of the other provinces of this
district know the Judge as well as
-if someother people, they 'will con-
ciuue mat ne is at present as good a
democrat at heart as he was when
holding the registership of the
North Platte laud office.
It took the jury in the celebrated
Pollard-Breckinridge case but two
hours to decide that the plaintiff
was entitled to 15,000 damages.
The Kentucky statesman's indiscre
tion cost him- dearly money posi
tion and honor. Having failed to
be vindicated by the court, he will
seek vindication by being a candi
date for re-election, but it is quite
likely be will be turned down. It
is a source of congratulation to the
public that the unpleasant and nasty
trial has ended.
The Lincoln Journal, speaking of
Matt Daugherty's canvass for the
republican congressional nomina
tion, says: "It is conceded that the
oihce will be obliged to do some
spirited sprinting to get away from
Matt, as he is one of the hvhest
men in. Nebraska.
Tx a letter, dated April 10th, Co
Secretary Barney, of the republi
can congressional committee, James
Whitehead states that circumstances
will'not admit of him accepting a
nomination for congress. This is
probably quite a relief ,to several
gentlemen who are seeking the
AmojsG the many serious and
difficult problems confronting the
American people at this time, one
of the most important is that of
immigration. It is a fact patent
to all that a large proportion of the
imigration now daily landing upon
our shores are not such as will make
desirable citizens. Every honest, in
telligent, 'industrious, law-abiding
man, come from whence he may,
should be welcome to our shores.
He will add to our civilization and
prosperity. But we caonot hope to
assimilate the mass of ignorance,
crime, filth and pauperism daily
dumped upon our soil from south
ern Europe. Their presence is a
danger which grows as the number
increases. This problem is so com
plicated that no one can hope for
a perfect solution all at once. Any
step in that direction should receive
our hearty indorsement. The Stone
bill providing for consular inspect
ion on the other side, is such a step.
There is no reason why the immi
grant should come 4,000 miles to de
termine whether he is admissable or
not. It is much better for him to
know that before he start, and that
fact can certainly be more accurately
ascertained where he lives than on
the other side of the globe. Jt is to
be hoped that this measure shall 'be
come a law, and to that end every
citizen should lend his influence.
Cause and Effect.
Whv did Rhode Island go repub
lican by 6,000 and more in 1894?
Why did it go democratic by almost
1,200 in 1892? Why did the dem
ocratic plurality fall to 178 in 1893?
We submit a few figures in an
swer to these questions.
The number of wage-earners
employed in the factories of the
state stood in 1892 at 19,089. This
was the McKinley year, the unpre
cedentedly prosperous year, the year
in which workmen were told 'it is
the unions, not the tariffs, that
create high wages," and were told
also that to "swipe the tariff11 would
be to hurt their employers, described
by the democratic press as "robber
barons,"without hurting themselves.
Many of them believed what they
were told, and therefore the state
went democratic by 1,200 plurality.
But in 1893 the possibility of
democratic tariff tinkering becaaa
plain, and so the number of wage
earners employed became less, being
but 14,770. This demonstration of
the intimate relation of protective
tariff to the demand for labor caused
the wage-earners to put on their
thinking caps, and the democratic
plurality of 1,200 in 1892 fell to 178
In 1894 the dangerous possibility
of democratic tariff tinkering had
become a dangerous probability, and
the number of smployed mill and
factory operatives had fallen from
19,089 in the great McKinley year
of 1892 to 10,966 in what seemed
likely to be the first disastrous
Wilscn year. Eyery wage-earner
was alarmed, and so there was a
republican pluralitv of 6,000 regis
tered at the elections of 1894.
All this is as plain as A B C.
J . Jtl. juCiiOLL, ot .Lexington, has
at last acceded to the demands of
his friends and consents to be a
candidate for governor. This
action on the part of popular "Jack
will be well received 6y republicans
all over the state, and no one will
have the termity to say that his
nomination does not mean an elec
tion by twenty thons'and plurality
There" will, however, be quite a con
test in the convention for the nom
ination, as Tom Major's hustling
backers will undoubtedly make
Btrong fight for him, a fact that
McColl's friends fully - appreciate
and will be ready .t Meet.

The Paoifio Bailroads.
In the course of a long and very
interesting conversation on the
development of railroads in this
.country and their present relation
to the government,Senator Cullom
pointed out the numerous difficulties
in the way of any of the proposed
schemes and gave it as his opinion
that it is now almost if not quite
impossible for the wisest body of
men to arrange any system that
will satisfy the people and adapt it
self to the rapid changes m trade
and transportation. "Ibe proposi
tion to sell our claims on the Paci
fic railroads,11 said he, "is at
present without backing that is,
so far as I know, no authorized
body has proposed to buy them.
And if the government should try
to sell, by what rule could thsy be
valued? The subject is not before
our committee, but as near as I can
make out from the statements pub
lished the managers claim that the
roads are making nothing, and
what is property worth which earns
nothing? However, the road might
sell for a great deal more than their
present value and no doubt would.
The fact is, those roads were built
under peculiar and exceptional cir
cumstances. It was a time of high
prices and lavish expenditures, of
general carelessness and wasteful
ness. There were land grants and
subsidies, all that heart could wish,
and in pay for them a big mortgage
on the future. Pay day has come.
I and nobody is able to pay.
it looks to me as if we should
just lose our claim outright, as the
propositioas to pt tke roai in
comniesioA or the like are of a na
ture that congress -frill Hot yet cn
sent to. The fact is,the ooaatry is
not yetTsady for aay con archeMTe
plsjf. Oar constitution and general
systefD'Of government were not got
to deal with such things, and law
makers honestly confess that it will
take a long time to devise a practi
cable scheme. Other questions are
pressing on this feaeratioa, aael it
looks as if this railraisl qaeette

know what that means. In 10 years
everything will be changed, and the
roads would take their chances on
what they can do after that. It
simply amounts to postponing the
thing 10 years, and at the end of
that time a new set will be here
with a great deal more experience
and, it is to be hoped, more wisdom.

Some weeks ago the New York
Herald remarked that if a general
election were held at that time the
democratic party would be over
whelmed. Getting more lightirom
recent municipal elections the coun
try over, not to speak of the guber
natorial election in Rhode Island,
the Herald now repeats its former
prediction, and adds that "unless
the wave is stayed befor. the com
ing congressional elections, which
now seems exceedingly doubtful, it
will carry into the next bouse of
representatives a large republican
majority as sure as fate:11 While
this testimony is not necessary to
enhance republican confidence, it is
agreeable to have the opposition put
such good matter in evidence.
A missionary at Assam, India,
writes to a Dubuque paper that he
bought at Sibsagor, 800 miles in
land from Calcutta, a, consignment
of Standard oil at fourteen cents a
gallon, including the cans and cases.
The little item of transportation
half way around the world seems to
cut no figure in the price of coal oil
the price being no higher there than
here. In this vale of tears, how
ever, the cost of transportation
enters largely into the price, of oil.
Take the rate on petroleum from
Casper, Wyo., to Chicago, whfiih is
$358 per car load, a tariff. whic;h is
both illegal and prohibitive. Ex.
Senator Murphy the gentleman
who has at last woh fanie by his
able and long continued efforts on
behalf of the collar and cuff industry
announces placidly as he journeys
toward the west that a vote will npt
be taken on the Wilson tariff bill
until next November. The people
will vote on the Wilson bill and the
democratic party and the president
and several other things in Novem
ber, also, and the result will show
an almost unanimous condemnation
of the whole busiuess. Ex.
Our Mr. Allen poses among the
de. hoc rats and pops of the senate as
the great unknown. He positively
refuses to disclose his inteutions in
the matter of the Wilson bill. "I
shall not say whether I will vote for
it or against it," he ejaculated
when pressed for a definition of his
position. It will probably take
about seventeen hours for him to'
define his position when the hour
for voting arrives. Ex.
The people of Hawaii appear to
be making good progress toward
the adoption. of a constitution that
will give them a permanent form
of goyernment. They know that
they cannot expect annexation to
the" United States, at least for the
present. Under the circumstances
they are adopting the only wise
course they could pursue.

BANK ROBBED BY A COWBOY.
Cashier Whlpple'of Crawford Made to Giro
Up Two ThoMind Dollars.
Chadbon, Neb., April U. While
Cashier Whipple of the Crawford Bank
ing company of Crawford, Neb., was
alone in the bank, a stranger, attired in
a cowboy garb, entered and, shoving a
6-shooter in Whipple's face, demanded
money. Being taken unawares, Whip
ple could do nothing but give up all the
cash on the counter, amounting to
$2,500. The robber then compelled
Whipple to enter the vault and locked
in about 20 minutes a Mr. Chase en
tering the bank heard strange noises pro
ceeding from the vault, and seeing no one
in sight hastened to the president, who
let the cashier out.
Two men, one of whom answers the
description given by Whipple of the rob
ber, were noticed riding leisurely out of
town a little before 4 o'clock. Whipple's
description of the robber is a man about
10 years old, 5 ft. 10 or 11 in. tall, heavy
black mustache, dark complexioned,
with three or four weeks' growth of
black whiskers, black suit and high
heeled cowboy boots.

One of the simplest devices for smug
gling diamonds is that of the hollow
heeled shoe. It is asserted that' boots
and shoes constructed so as to leave, a.-
small vacant space in the heels are easily,
obtained in Europe, and they are espe
cially manufactured for the purpose of
supplying smugglers with amcansfor-:
The porous plaster has often1 served as
a means of secreting diamonds., When?
it is understood that $10,000 worth cf
diamonds or more can easily bedocO

quarter of an inch 'thick, -it ia eary tb:

One of the most ingenious methods
ever employed was :the use of a cako cf
soap, wherein a number of vlianioiicte
had been imbedded. It is highly proba
ble that this plan would havo prov ;l
successful had it not been that the cf.i
cers of the government had received in
formation that the suspected person hr.V
diamonds with him and searched his ef
fects so thoroughly that they examined
even the gem studded block of soap. x ,
The wife of this smuggler helped, her i
spouse, and her plan was not less ingcii;
ions than that of her husband. Her hr.t
was ornamented with bunches of grapes, .
which under ordinary circumstances
would only have awakened the envy cf
other wearers of bonnets. Within" the"
grapes wero diamonds and fancy stontw

Another smuggler was especiallpro-1
vided by Providence with a smuggling
device in the shape of. a heavy covering
of thick, bushy hair, which'he arranged,
so that it stood up from his forehead
like an impenetrable bush. Within this
mass of heavy hair he deposited a good
ly stock of diamonds and succeeded, for
a time in escaping the vigilance-of the
custom house officials.
As these sohemes havo become known?
to the custom house authorities the in
genuity of smugglers has been more se
verely taxed. A recent discovery dis
closed the following elaborato plan,
which succeeded a great many times be
