After all there may not be so
much "peanut" politics in regard to
the decision of the supreme court as
to the Omaha fire and police board
as our friend Hosewater would have
us believe. In many of the older
states certain gubernatorial func
tions have been stripped from that
office and lodged with a board or
commission. Particularly is this
true of the pardoning power; and in
the case of a knavish or venal offi
cer it has worked very well.
We have received the consolidated
July and August issue of the West

chuck full of matter of interest to
irrigators and others, but it would
seem that Mr. Stockton is not meet

which he deserves in publishing
this magazine. We trust, however,
that the people of the irrigated dis
trict will rally to his support. If
you have not seen a copy of the
magazine send to the publisher at
Sidney for a sample copy.
It would not be surprising if the
republicans carry Kentucky this
year. The democratic vote in that
state has been cut down each year
since 1883, when the majority given
Kiiott over Colonel Morrow was
40,000. Last year the total demo
cratic vote on the ten congressmen
was 160,380, while the republican
vote was 157,197. This year the
republicans are showing great in

indications are. that the coming
election will cause a break in the
Indications are that

publicans of-Ciucoln county will
assemble in convention at the court
house and nominate a full county
ticket, as well as select delegates to
the state and judicial conventions.
There are a number of candidates
who aspire for" nomination to the
several county offices; in fact there
is such a large list of available ma
terial that it will require sound
judgment on the part of the dele
gates to determine who should re
ceive the nominations. There are
several points to be considered in
these selections.- Each
should convince himself
that the candidate for Tvhich he
casts his1 vote possesses eyery
necessary qualificatiom for the of
fice; that the candidate has a per
sonal, political or official record
that cannot be successfully attacked
by the opposition mud-slingers.and
that he will poll at least the full
strength of his party. These points
should be well considered, so that
the delegate may vote intelligently
and thus vote for the best interests
onus party. io candidate is as
great as the republican party of
Lincoln county, and to nominate a
personal friend who would weaken
the ticket would be a costly error.
nacn man nominated suould pos-
sess quauncations mat will serve
to make him a good vote getter not
only for himself but for every can
didate on the ticket. Republican
success in Lincoln county this fall
depends largely upon the make-up
of the ticket. There are large
numbers of voters in the county
who deserted the republican ranks
four years ago,pwhq will gladly re
turn to the parly if an inducement
in the way of a ticket composed of
clean, straight and well qualified
men is presented to them. Let the
convention select the ticket with
care and there can be no doubt as
to its success in November.

PEPPEBING THE "POPS."
A populist exchange asks why it
is that reoublican papers are so
. r .
much harder on the pop than on the
democratic paper. The question is
not difficult to answer. There is
he same difference in fighting the
wo parties that there is in fighting
a disciplined, well regulated army
md a band of bushwhackers. The
pops know no law, no rules of fair
ness, no such thing as fair play.
They take every possible advantage
assassinate every opponent, if they
can, aud alwavs cheat and deceive
he people. They profess fteat
honesty and pretend to deplore dis
honesty and trickery, and yet as
soon as they get into office they be
gin to look for something to steal.
Thev denounce in most abusive
terms the honored leaders of the re
publican party and themselyes fol-
ow as leaders the worst political
renegades and rascals in the world.

reasons, a republican would prefer

Brothers of One Nation.
They were Generals John M. Palmer
and John B. Gordon. The fued which
stirred them to a strife then has been
blotted out, and today they and their
followers are as brothers of one nation
and of one family.
It is doubtful if the world ever before
Baw such a scene as was jthat at Cbick
amauga. Certainly there never was one
more impressive and joyfully affecting
at the same time. It was witnessed by
no less than 50,000 people of the north
and of the south, aud at least half of
them took part in that bloody civil war
of which Cbickamauga was a part.
The ceremonies took place at Snod-

bo thickly covered with dead 83 years
ago that, he survivors say, one could
walk all over it from crest to base,

Vice President Stevenson Presided.
Vice President A. 15. Stevenson pre
sided over the dedicatory exercises.
When the vice president came forward
he was greeted with loud applause. The
spot selected by the national commis
sion on Snodgrass Hill was so arranged
that nearly every one of the tens of
thousands of auditors could hear tho
speeches and addresses throughout. By
Way of beginning there was a national
salute of 44 guns by the artillery, fol
lowed by the "Star Spangled Banner,"
played by ono of the United States in
fantry bands. It was cheered to the
echo by veterans of the blue and the
gray, and many of the grizzled veterans
Bhed tears of joy.
When the applause had ceased Vice
President Stevenson made a briof ad
dress appropriate to the occasion.
When he had finished prayer was
Iffered by BA Bev. Bishop Gailor of
"America," the beautiful national
anthem was then sung by the audience,
accompanied by the band, and every
one of tho fifty odd thousand people as
sembled, both blue and gray, sang it aa
if inspired. The great volume of sound
rolled up as a great tidal wave, and
long before the song was ended tears
were coursinL- down the cheeks of thou
sands of the old veterans.

Chicago. Sept. 19. According to the
story told by Attorney D. K. Tenney of
Chicago, W. W. Taylor, the embezzling
treasurer of South Dakota, now under
sentence of five years in the peniten
tiary for his theft of $3?,000 of the
funds entrusted to his official care, lost
his nerve and patience at the critical
hour and unceremoniously fled. His
crime would, in all probability, never
have been made public and ho today
-would be a free man. Air. Tenney, who
acted as Taylor's legal advisor, and who
Is himself under indictment at Pierre,
S. D., for conspiracy to defraud tne
state, says that had Taylor remained
here 24 hours louger the whole matter
would have been quietly settled.
John T. McChesney of New York,
one of the ex-treasurer's bondsmen,
last December was told of the shortage
and, with Tenny, attempted to secure
the $150,000 nUessary to settle. The
$100,000 was quickly secured, but Tay
lor failed in getting the last $50,000.
McChesney went to St. Paul to raise it,
and while there Taylor lost his nerve
and fled. Twenty-four hours later Mc
Chesney reached Chicago with the
money, but Taylor had gone and the

Occidental and Oriental Fair.
Tacoma, Wali., Sept. 19. A project
to hold an occidental and oriental fair
in Taconin in the summer of the year
1900 has beeu decided unon as a result
of the great growth in the oriental traf
fic which has so increased in three years
that 120,000 tons or 400 train loads of
freight from and going to the orient
will be handled by the Tacoma-China
line this year. Congress will be asked
early in the next session to appropriate
$ 500,000 for tho fair on the ground that
the Pacific coast is entitled to an appro
priation for a fair.never having had one.

San Prancisco, Sept. 19. The Ex

courts to prevent the new rates on
freight established by the railroad com
mission from going into effect. The
constitutionality of the commission will
not be attacked, but the ante-election
pledges of the two Democratic mem
bers of the commission will be cited as
evidence that they are prejudiced, also
the fact that Commissioner La Rue is a
heavy grain shipper, and therefore an
interested party will be brought out.

place the crop at 10,000 to 32,0'JO bales
and 8,000 to 10,000 bales east of the
Cascades. As a result of the low price
growers are oaly paying 75 cents a box.
As lice have devoured a large part of
the crop and the pickers' work is in
creased in proportion, growers are
having difficulty in securing pickers.
