Let every republican in the coun
ty get out and vote this year, and
give the pops evidence that as a
party they are not "in it."
This is a republican year; even
Jake Miller is ready to admit this.
Jake's "walkaway" is not so clear to
him as it was two -weeks ago.
This is not the year for republi
cans to split their tickets. Vote
straight and thus put the party in
good position for the fight next year.
"The average republican plurality
on the state ticket in Lincoln
county last year was 102. This
year the plurality will be consider-.
There is considerable "unwritten
history" in regard to Newell Bur
ritt which might be published if
necessary but it is unnecessary to
kick a man who is already whipped.
Conservative estimates.based on
the reports received from the sev
eral counties in the district, place
H. M. Grimes' majority at 400. By
a little extra work it can be made
Not a populist nominee on the
county ticket is sanguine of his
election, Tim Keliher and Colonel
Ullingham to the contrary notwith
standing. Butler and Jake will go
down with the others.
Republicans should take no stock
in the reports which state that cer
tain men will act as deputies to
Messrs. Mathews and Warner.
These candidates are not making
At the city election in Indianap

The populist nominee for su
preme judge will not, contrary to
the claims of the members ot that
party, receive the complimentary
votes given Holcomb in this county
last fall. The republicans will stay
by their ticket this year and Judge
Norval will have at least 150 plu
rality in the county.
Agent Beck has just been sus-tained-by
Judge Shims in his posi
tion concerning settlers on Indian
lands in Thurston county and the
settlers have been told once more
to "get." They have a cold winter
confronting them but if they don't
go when.the word is given they are
evicted without merch or ceremony.
The campaign of sympathy which
a certain populist candidate is
making will hardly win, especially
when the. family has received more
from the county of Lincoln than any
one who .is not a regular salaried- of
ficer. There are some other facts
connected with this candidate which
prove that there is no especial need
of a shower of sympathy.
John Ritner deserves the support
of every republican in the Second
commissioner district because he
is a good business man and superior
in many respects to either of his op
ponents. It is high time to kill off
the populist favoritism that has
been shown by the board of commis
sioners for the past four years, and
elect men who wjll transact business
on business methods. Elect Mr.
Ritner and he and the present re
publican member will transact the
affairs of the county in an honest
manner regardless of party politics.
"W. C. Elder is making a cam
paign that gives evidence of a re
turn of that old-time vigor diplayed
by the famous "Lincoln County
Bull Team," and of which he was a
member. Mr. Elder not only "wants
the entire ticket elected, out ne
wants it elected by a majority that
will even surprise republicans. He

The populists who are circulating
through the county are telling
number ot falsehoods concerning
the republican party and nominees
One of these stones is that the re-
oublicans offered Luke Haley, the
democratic candidate, S150 if he
would stay on the ticket. Mr.
Haley emphatically denies that any
such proposition was ever made
That little card so vigorously
distributed by Mr. Buchanan and
his friends, and which was thought
would carry Butler into office with
a whoop, is not having the desired
errect. it wras supposed to be a
trump card and everything was
staked upon it, but it seems the
majority of the voters do not fall
into the arms of a man who poses
as the only honest man in Lincoln
Attorney General Harmon says
that while there is no law prohibit
ing American citizens from express
ing sympathy with the Cuban
revolutionists, such action is "dis
courteous in the highest degree to
a friendly power." This is sad,
but the discourtesy is increasing,
nevertheless, and the aministra
tion will hardly be able to stop it.
St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Judge Norvall, the republican
nominee for justice of the supreme
court, is a man for whom every re
publican can vote without making
any apologies. During his career
on the supreme bench he has proven
a most conscienscious judge; never
allowing politics or personal influ
ence to bias his decisions, and his
personal character is unsullied.
His leading opponent, Judge Max
well, though claiming to be a non
partisan candidate, is not entitled
to support irom republicans, and
we doubt if he receives any.
The nomination of Hon. H. M
lirimes tor district judge is an ex
cellent selection. He is one of the
prominent lawyers of the state, and
has a very high legal standin
Lincoln county, the home of both
Grimes and his opponent, is con
ceded to the republicans by a.strong
maiority, and it is also conceded
that in all the eastern counties o
the district, where he is known
well, he is sure of much more than
the party vote. When election is
over, old Grimes will not be dead,
that good old man, by a jugfull.
Chairman McMillan, ot the Iowa
republican committee, claims that
Senator Quay, ex-Senator Thomas
C. Piatt, and Joe Manley are al
supporters of Senator Allison for
the presidential nomination. If
Mr. McMillan knows what he is
talking about he would do well to
keep still and allow these gentl
men to get in their work without
alarming the other presidential
candidates. In matters where Matt
Quay, Tom Piatt, and Joe Manley
are expected to do the work, they
can be trusted to tell about it at the
time when it will do the most ffood.
Here is a good paragraph from
the Syracuse Journal: If you be
lieve in the principles of repubh
canism, under which this country
prospered as never before or since,
when these principles were the
guiding star of the nation; if you
are anxious for a return of prosper
ity and for relief from the depres
sion and demoralization of business
that has swept over the entire
country since the advent ot the
democratic party to power, put
yourself in line to help accomplish
this end by voting a straight repub
lican ticket this fall. Republican
success this year will add strength
and emphasis to certain republican
victory next year, and a return of
prosperity to the whole people.
The administration made a des
perate attempt to show a "surplus"
for September for use in the cam
paign. The intention was of course
to make the groundlings in the pit
believe that now, having been given
a little chance to work, the Wilson
tariff act was going to make a
beautiful showing and the revenues
were going to exceed the expenses.
By staving off the people who had
bills and hurrying up the collec
tions as much as possible a small
surplus was forced for the month.
But the first ten days of October
have made their record of deficiency
and the average is within a' few
dollars of $824,000 per day. It is
probable that the only effect of the
forced surplus of September will be
the largest deficiency for October
in the history of this or any other
administration in a time of peace.

At a recent irrigation meeting
held at Garden City, Kas., the fact
was brought out that out of 344
practical irrigators who had been
asked about their industry all -but
six testified to the profitableness of
irrigation by pumping. The six,
probably, were unlucky in their ex

At a meeting: of a convention of
the Illinois lederation of labor a
proposed resolution, that the con

the action of E" V. Debbs in his
work on the strike of the A. R. U.

managers association, was refused,
and instead of it the following was
adopted: "Whereas, Eugene V.

SUGAR BOUNTY CASES.
Ex-Senator Mantlersen Will Be Given a
Hearing by Secretary Carlisle.
"Washington, Oct. 17. Ex-Senator
Manderson of Nebraska will be given a
a hearing by Secretary Carlisle on tha
question raised by him in the sugar
bounty cases as. to the jurisdiction of
the comptroller of the treasury. After
Comptroller Bowler's decision to send
the cases to the court of claims, Secre
tary Carlisle promised the sugar men
that he would hoar them if they desired
it on this question. Last night the sec
tary telegraphed the ex-senator, noti
fying him that the court of claims will
meet on the 28th of this month, and
unless the question of the comptroller's
jurisdiction was raised before that time
ho would send the claims to the court.
This morning the secretary received a
reply from Mr. Manderson, renewing
his request for a hearing, and asking
that the time for the hearing be fixed
for some date befcre Nov. 10. In his
telegram Mr. Manderson declares that
the comptroller neither had jurisdiction
nor the right to send the cases to the
court of claims without the consent of
the claimants. "I regard the position of
the claimants as unassailable," said the

the sugar people some time ago that ho
would stand by the decision of the
comptroller. There is an intimation
that Secretary Carlisle forced the issue
at this time in order to get the matter
into court before congress convened, as
it was believed that the sugar men
hoped fo keep it out of court until an
effort could be made in congress again
to pass the appropriation, coupled with
a provision making it mandatory on the
secretary to pay it forthwith.
STATUS OF THJ5 WARIER CASK.
Record of His Trial Still In the Hands of
Washington, Oct. 17. Counsel Ken
nedy, of the Waller case, is of the opin
ion that the turn which the courso of
military affairs has taken in Madagas
car in favor of the French will not un
favorably affect the financial interests
of the ex-consul in that island. When
France assumes an undisputed protect
orate in tho islaud, as it is presumed she
will, in view of the recent success of her
army in that quarter, she will find that
various grants have been made toNsiti
zens of other countries, notably of En
gland and Germany, and it is supposed
that the Waller grant will be put on the
same basis as those.
No intimation has so far been received
here as to the light thrown upon the irn
pnsonmcnt of Waller by tho record of
his trial, which is now in the hands of
Ambassador Eustis. It is believed by
Waller s friends that oven should it be
made by this record to appear that tho
court in which ho was tried had juris
diction, and tho charges werojiot with
out foundation, the French government
will be induced to grant the prisoner's
release as an act of international com
ity, but the ex-consul's friends will de
mand a very thorough scrutiny of the
papers before allowing the request to be
made on this ground.
DIRECTORS IiEAItXED A LESSON.
Id Hung Chang's First Railroad Trip and
Ho-.v He Showed, His Satisfaction.
Washington, Oct. 17. A 'most inter
esting report upon Chinese railroads is
furnished to the state department by
Consul Head at Tien Tsin. He tells
of the difficulties that were encountered
by the young-English engineer who ran
the first locomotive in overcoming the
superstitious, repugnance of the natives
and tho government to the "rocket
dragon," as his homemade locomotive
was called, and of the engineering feat
ures of tho road from Tien Tsin to Shang
Hai-Kwan and gives the following mci
dent of the first trip by steam of the
celebrated old viceroy, Li Hung Chang:
"As director general of the road, he
was given a special car. Tins was fur
nished with elaborate chairs, louncres.
tables, etc., upholstered in silk and
satin. Li, on his first trip, was profuse
in his expressions of admiration. Upon
his return to Tien Tsin his satisfaction
had reached such a point that he ordered
all the furniture, hangings, etc., to be
removed to his palace. To the disap
pointment of the great viceroy, the spe
cial feature of tho car, the luxurious
bed, was left behind, as it had been
built into the car. The directors learned
a lesson and the viceroy's now private
car has furniture that cannot be re
mnvwl." Mason City, la., Oct. lv. xneiurtn-

long cherished wish to own a transcon

about the Corbett-Fitzsimmons affair.
Members of the comnnttee seem to know

tee was pledged to secrecy as to what
passed in it yesterday and last night.and
Governor Clarke refused to be inter
viewed. Tho best information that
could be obtained is that tho informa
tion furnished to and deduced by the
newspaper men last night regarding
Governor Clarke's attitude were too
sanguine. As nearly as subsequent in
vestigations can be depended upon Gov
ernor Clarke's position remains un
changed. He intends to see the laws
enforced, but believes the local officers
competent to see them executed, but
when assistance was requested by Cir
cuit Judge Duffle, he, as chief execu
tive of tho peace of the state, had no
other alternative than to promise his as
sistance; as long as this request is net

position even though assured that there
would be no infraction of tho law. If
Judge Duffle will recall his request the
governor will be assured that his inter
ference is unnecessary.

DURRANT TRIAL NEARING THE END.
No Trntli In the Report That Counsel Tor
the Defense Dad Disagreed.
San Francisco, Oct. 17. Durr.uit's
attorneys expect to conclude tho case of
the defense next Monday. There is no
truth in the report that the counsel for
Dnrrant had disagreed and that Dcuprey
was making an excuse of his opportune
illness to get out of the case.
In speaking of the friendly feeling
which exists between the attorneys,
General Dickinson said: "The defense
lias tried this case fairly, and it is grati
fying to know thatethere - has been no
vindictive spirit shown by any one of
the attorneys. We have defended the

many of the leading attorneys have

Dexver, Oct. 17. A necro named
Bob Marshall was tarred and feathered
at Greeley last night for having insulted
Governor Mclntyro at the potato day
Governor Mclntyro was very much
surprised when informed of the incident
at Greelv. He went to the bicycle
races at Greely Tuesday with his wife.
When they arrived at the stand for
teams they 'found their way blocked by
a lone wagon to which was attached a
team driven by Marshall. General Klee
came up at that moment and requested
the negro to move liis wagon so as not
to take up too much room. Thereupon
Marshall delivered a brado of abuse,
using the most foul and insulting lan
guage. Finally, however, he did as re
quested. Governor Mdntyre thought
so little of the matter that he did not
mention it to anybody since his return
to Denvor. General Xlee said that Mar
shall deserved to be run out of town.but
he thought the punishment inflicted
upon him was entirely too Eevere,

190 davs since tho British ship Lord
Spencer left this port for Qneenstowu,
