THE CITIZEN vs. THE POIITICIAIT.
How any self-respecting- democrat
who has the ultimate g-ood of his
party at heart can support Judge
Neville in his canvass for re-elec
tion almost surpasses the bounds
of comprehensibility. Immediately j
upon his retirement from the local
land office in this citv he besran to
cast about for a means to continue
in nublic office: for Win. Neville
without an office is something-of an
anomaly since his residence in Ne
braska, and is not a position accord
in s- to his likino-. At about that
time the wave of nooulism beeran
sweeping" over the. western states,
and to this temporary aberration
did he look for the consummation
of his schemes. His former party
being- so largely in the minority in
this portion of Nebraska he hoped
that bv a consolidation of all the i
opposing elements to republicanism
together with all the malcontents
within the party, to be able to sue- petition. It appears that the ad
cessfully ride into office. How well ministration democrats there cap-
his planning- succeeded is a matter
of current history.
His remarkable letter of- accept
auce of the iudicial nomination
four years ago, insulted the
integrity and probity of purpose of
his fellow partisans, at the same
time admitting- that the then new
party lacked sufficient procreative
powers for good. His political
prescience fitted him to be thus
prophetic, and marked him as an
exceedingly adroit politician. Citi-
zeu Neville is one thing- and poli
tician Neville is altogether another;
the former is a very
gentleman, while the methods
the latter are not-always free from
a spirit ol fairness, to say the least.
In the citizen and the politician
a queer commingling of Dr. Jekyl
Mr. Hyde sort of machiavelianism
which is intended for the sole
grandizement ot Wm. JNevilIe irre
spective of the ties of friendship or
party. His logical deduction ot the
philosophic fact that no stream can
rise higher than its source en
abled him to correctly foretell that a
political party cannot become purer
than its procreators; and that all its
claims for reform would end simply
in turning out one set of officials
and supplying- their places by an
other, whose only zeal for the sue
cess of their newly adopted organi
zation was because of their itch for
office. Knowing as he did that the
self-constituted leaders of the
organization were disgruntled and
broken-down politicians iii both of
the old parties it was but an easy
matter for him to.accurately predict
That he is a believer in the adage
of "a bird in the hand is worth two
in the bush," is: evidenced by the
fact that he would not make a can
vass to obtain 'the nomination of
his party for the- supreme court
judgeship when he might easily
have obtained the same. Yet in
the langruagfe ot politician Neville
he preferred a "cinch" game, and
Waited for what he conceived to be
the way of
nomination for a district judgeship.
How badly he is mistaken in his
latest calculations the ides ot No
vember . will develop. Like rats
deserting a sinking ship his fellow
political plotters have followed his
example and refused the barren
honor of a nomination so unpromis
ing of a successful culmination, and
the burden was shifted to one of
another political organization,
whose ending- may prove a repeti-
ion of that of the political leader
who in 1872 wandered away trom
lis old political associates in order
to accept an empty presiuenuui
. - j i-i
Had Wm. Neville remained stead-
ast to his political principles he
would to-day be the natural leader
of the democratic party in western
Nebraska.and whose banners which
been so often born aloft in
many a hard fought political battle,
would not be as they are to-day,
rr alonn- in the dust as the
appendix to an organization which
in his own thought has" neither
pride of ancestry nor hope of pros-
peritv. As the loo-ical sequence of
X -j --o
his labors to-day in most, if not all,
he counties of this district when
democrats wis,h to place a ticket of
their political faith before the peo
ple they are compelled to servilely
beg- their way before the public by
petition. Can any' individual who
has thus wrought havoc to the ranks
of his old party organization hope
... - " " c i
to merit the suffrages ot us mem
bers? Certainly we cannot think
them so craven-hearted as to not
accept the guage thus thrown down
in defiance. In order to acquire an
office he willfully and premeditat
edly slew his part'. Can he expect
anything- other than that the day
of his reckoning is' at hand his
political Waterloo? We think not.
It is now announced that Con
gressman Lemuel Quigg-, of the 14th
New York district will resign in a
day or so without ever having an
opportunity to ask leave to have a
speeph printed. If old Charley Dana
can now resurrect anotner uixxk
Podukehe may have a showof being
elected to the vacancy.
Is there any significance to the
following- "pop" ticket for Lincoln
Lord Dunraven, the owner of
the English yacht competing- for
the international cup made the
voluntary offer to its sailors of
thirty shillings a week to each for
his life, if the race were won by I
them. As the men are ail young.
it is estimated that he would have
to tav about $400, 800 in the event
of the British vessel winning-, which
is considered an impossibility
less an accident should occur.
The 50-cent democrats of
county, according- to a decision
the district judge there will have to
g-et their ticket before the people by

its convention and nominated a
ticket. Afterward the 16 to 1 fel

WELC0MED BY WATTEBS0N.
Women's Relief Corps and Ladles' Circle
Hold Meetings Daughters of Veterans
Giro a Reception to the Veterans
Louisville, Sept. 12. The demon
stration on the line of parade being
over, the 29th annual encampment be
gan its business session at 10 a. m., also
the Women's Relief corps and the
Ladies' Circle of the G. A E. Those
meetings were attended only by dele
gates. Meantime the veterans met in
corps, brigade and regimental reunions
all over tho city. The campfires, with
fireworks and other demonstrations,
continue every night during the week,
elaborate programs with recitations and
music being announced. The army
veterans were entertained today and the
the Daughters of Veterans gave a bril
liant reception to G. A. E. veterans
and other visitors. There were 18
marching veterans and dozens of others
prostrated by the heat yesterday. All
are now reported as doing well, but it
was hotter than ever today. Instead of
the visitors leaving today, the railroads
report that they are coming in for the
fireworks, for the barbecue tomorrow
and other events. The tombs of Presi
dent Taylor and veterans of war were
visited by thousands today. As many
go from here to the encampment of the
Sons of Veterans at Knoxville, the dedi
cation of the monuments and the na
tional park at Chattanooga and Chicka-
mauga and to the Atlanta exposition,
the tide will move farther south next
instead of north. The Women's Belief
corps met today at Library hall. Mrs.
President Wallace presided. The exer
cises wore opened with salutes, flag
drills and tableaux in the curriculum of
patriotic teaching. The opening session
was devoted to welcome addresses, re
sponses and to the hearing of the annual
renorts of the national officers.
Tho Lidies' Circle of the G. AE. met
at the board of trade today with Mr3.
President Gunlock presiding. Its ses
sion was also devoted to annual reports,
which showed increased membership
and good conditions generally. The
ladies of the circle, however, showed no
general disposition to unite with the
Women's Relief Corps.
XSnsiness Session of the -Encampment.
By far the most interesting function
of the week began at 10 o'clock in Music
hall. It was the meeting of the encamp
ment for the election of executive and
commanding officers for the ensuing
year and to decide upon a place of meet
ing for the next year. The hall has a
seating capacity of 8,450, and every seat
was occupied. None but G. A. E. men
and accredited delegates were admitted
to the hall. There was cousiderable de
lay, and it was nearly 1 :30 when the
delegates were all at their posts.,, Gen
eral Lawler, the commander-in-chief,
was loudly choered. As soon as quiet
was restored he formally called the
meeting to order.
He said that as this was the first
meeting of the G. A. E. south of the
Ohio river the executive committee had
changed the usual program. The citi
zens of Louisville, he said, wanted to
give expression of their pleasure in hav
ing the honor of entertaining the boys
in blue. "You will be glad to know,"
he said, "that the man who is to give
the address of welcome is ncj other than
the Hon. Henry Watterson."
At the mention of Mr. Watterson's
name there was an outburst of applause,
and when it had died away Mr. Watter
son stepped to the platform and spoke
Bid Welcome to Louisville.

of Louisville, endorsed by mo nnd dis

bo mentioned that I appear before you as
the representative alike of those who wore
tho Bluo and those who wore the Gray In
that sectional combat, which, whatever
else it did or did not, left no shadow upon
American soldiership, no stain upon Amer
ican manhood. But the war ended thirty
years ago. Here at iciisc the lesson has
been taught and learned that
xon. cannot chain the eagle,
And you dare not harm the dove;
Bat every gate
Hate bars to ha to
Will open wide to love.
And the flag! God bless the flag! Can
you doubt the loyal sincerity of those who
from housetop and from rooftrco have
thrown it to the breeze? Let some sacri
legious hand be raised to haul it down nnd
These arc honest flags with honest hearts
They are tho symbols of a nationality as
precious to us as to you. And why not?
What is left for yon nnd me to cavil nbout,
far less to fight about?
Slavery is gone; secession is dead. Union
with its system of statehood still intact.
still survives. It is this for which in a kind
of exultation that I throw open the gates
of this gateway to tho south ; I bid vou
welcome in the names of the people whose
voice is tho voice of God.
In response to this address Past Com-
mandcr-in-Uhief William Warner of
Kansas City spoke briefly. Ho said the
ys in blue would never forget the
generous ana mna nospyaiity of the
people of Louisville. When he had done
talking Commander Lawler said he took
great pleasure in introducing James
Whitcomb Riley, the Hoosier poet. Mr.
Riley then read an original poem.
As soou as the preliminary matter
was over, uenerai Liawier requested all
not members of the G. A: E. to with
draw from the hall, as it was to be a se
cret meeting. When all such had gone
out, General Lawler directed Rev. T.
H. Haggerty, the national chaplain, of
St. Louis to invoke the blessing of the
Deity. Commander Lawler then deliv
ered his annual address.

th4 O, B.
and Q. Tv'ear Alton.
Galesburg, Bis., Sept. 12. The Chi
cago, Burlington and Quincy railroad
had a peculiarly bad wreck just east of
Alton at 1 a. m. A westbound train
broke in two and as the front part
slowed up at the water tank the rear
part ran into the front, causing a car of
naphtha to ignite. There were 12 cars
of naphtha and petroleum in tkc train
and all were soon ignited. The flames
shot hundreds of feet high. Three cars
exploded with tremendous force. The
house of Thomas Carver near by was
set on fire and destroyed, and Mr. and
Mrs. Carver barely escaped with their
lives. Samuel Welch, 20 rods distant,
a village fireman, was covered with
burning oil and burned to death. Other
firemen were badly, but not fatally,
burned. The loss to the railroad com
pany is $12,000. Houses a quarter of
a mile away were scorched by tho burn
ing oil. C. O. Carlson, a locomotive
fireman, was thrown from a tank and
injured about the head. Oil cars were
strewn along for half a mile. The track
is twisted, telegraph poles down, ties
burned, trees blasted and the whole
scene is one of ruin.

reports have been sent out about Gov

hill campfire last night. Governor
Thayer complimented President Cleve-
land for maintaining law and order dur

ernor Altgeld and Debs in very
severe terms. iis denunciation of
anarchists was very severe and
there were cries for McKinley and
others. When the interruption con
tinued, Congressman Evans dismissed
the meeting as the program was about
completed. Thayer was not hooted off
the platform, but he closed abruptly by
saying: "l tnanic an the respectable
people in the audience for the polite
attention they have accorded me. For
tho disrespectful people I have nothing
but contempt." .
