!wMck B&fo ?um tk Legislature
and. t"h lpibliofta Fcitiei,
The Era last week devotes jbj
columns to the printiag" ofan opin
ion of Judge Neville on the subject
o irrigation. We are glad to find
that Judge Neville claims to stand
with the republicans upon this prop
osition. We desire, however, to
take-aexceptions to the comment
madeby "the editor, when he says:
"It is a positive relief in these days
Wjhen so many courts are tainted by
corporate influence in finding every,!
law unconstitutional, to -find one
judge who is not afraid to stand by
the rights of the people.'
From whom did the people of Ne
braska get its first law on irriga
tion? The republican legislature
of 1889; see page 503 of the session
laws of 1889; it being what is known
as the Rainer law, he being the
republican representative from this
district. "What did the legislature
of 1891 do upon the subject or irri
gation? Nothing. This was the
year when populist senator Stevens
was in the senate from tins district
and a populist from Perkins county
whose name we have forgotten, was
in the house. The legislature of 1891
was populist by a large majority,
and Stevens the big gitn, but no
legislation upon this all important
question was passed.
The legislature of 1893 was-not so
overwhelmiugly popqlist, the re-'
publicans and democrats haviqg
control of the senate, and some
aminendments were passed upon
this subjecL. See page 377 of the
laws of 1893. But in the year 1894'
$he republicans reclaimed this leg
islature and senatorial district from
the populists. The republicans
again had control of both houses at
Lincoln, and the whole irrigation
law was remodeled, and perfected
and the district law added to the
f Butthsrasays ,courts tainted
by , corporate influence find laws
made for the people unconstitu
tional. Then this irrigation law which
was enacted by the republicans was
made for the people. Now who are
the attorneys in western Nebraska
who went into court and affirmed:
the unconstitutionality of the irri
gation law? No other than our own
and only Thomas Fulton Gantt.
ile-did this in the case of Paxton &
Hershsy, a corporation, vs. Farm
ers & Merchants' Canal Co. -
This case was decided by Judge
Sinclair, a republican, in the spring
of 1895, in favor of the law and on
the side of the people. It was ap
pealed to the supreme court of Ne
braska, and we are glad to say that
this republican court was not
tainted by corporateinfluence, but
in a carefully prepared opinion by
Judge Post, the law is held consti
tutional in every particular.
The Tribune will . state right
here that H. M. Grimes, republican
candidate for district judgfit ap
peared in both the home andvthe
supreme courtsin the case above re
ferred to, and argued for the law
and has contended from the first
that our republican supreme court
would hold the law constitutional,
and if his printed brief of 48 pages,
which was filed in that ease,- and
printed in The Tribune office in
June last, is carefully examined,, it
will be found that many ot the
arguments therein contained have
found their way into the irrigation
opinion printed in the Era of last
The Era admits that the irriga
tion law is an act in the interest" of
the people, and a question in which
the people of western Nebraska are
intensely interested in. Thi& being
true what action was taken by the
populist party in their. late conven
tions upon this question? Nothing.
Head their county, judicial and
state platforms and not one word
will be found committing that party
to the furthering of irrigation enter
prises. But on the contrary the
Lincoln county republican conven
tion whichnominated its candidates
for county offices committed itself
strongly to the subject of irriga
tion. The judicial convention whicli
nominate8 2Jrr Q rim.es, a.mi the
platform upon which he is making
his campaign, stands squarely com
mitted to the subject of irrigation.
And further the last republican
state convention which was held at
Lincoln, Neb., October 3d, has as
one of its chief planks which was
adoptedwitliput a disseating vote,
the, following upon, the subject ' of
foremost in th ;malch of progress,
recognizes the. importance of irriga
tion to the people- of the western
part of thetate and we pledge the
party to the same friendly spirit in
the consideration ot future legisla
tion as it ejuhlSUed toward these
interests in the- enactment of the
first general irrigation law in 1889
and again in 1895, upon itfe return
to power inbdth howses of the legis
lature when it'greatly extended the
features of the law of 1889 and in
cluded provisions for the orgauiz
tion of irrigation districts." -
And we hereby ask the ccxigress
of the United States.to eiaij such
laws as will determine tkef rights
between citizens of severalftstates
in the use ot water-for ii
purposes f rom streams $
I rm finn
through two or mor$ stat
To further aid ill thelievelop
ment of irrigation we 'uldre
spectfulh request oiif ccttgwssional

law granting to the statfor this
purpose the r e m a 1 n 1 n g p Mi c lands

As Judge Neville il passing as an
old soldier, and is akihg7 support
from the bovs who iwbrehe blue,
it is not out of placetb acquaint the
old soldiers as to tip service the
Judge gave his countfy- The record
of the Grand Army l?osfeto which
he belongs is as follows:
William Neville, fagc37 years,
born in" Illinois, residence North
Platte, Nebraska, occupation at
torney. Entry into service, date
May 38th, 1864; rank, private, com

The Era klast weer'said that H.
M. Grimes never smelled powder.
The above recordwould indicate
that Judge NeviUdudid 'not smell

in his endeavor to have his wife

not this "man of the cloth" . prosti
tuting his religion for the- sake of
James M. Ray has been an effi
cient and impartial judge, and in
proof of this we refer to the fact
that the opposition has not publicly
said one word .against him, caunot
truthfully do so. Both Gantt and
Beeler will admit that the records
during Judge Ray's incumbency of
the office are absolutely correct.

FAMOUS DEBATE DECIDED Itf FAV0E0F
"THE HARD TIMES."
Joint debate: Affirmative, You
and Yourself; negative, Y. M. C. A.
The judges in the debate are the
famous jurists, Economy and In
telligence. Question debated is,
"Resolved, That life is not worth
livinjr these hard times'."
The gehtlemeu-on th.e affirmative
took the floor and with their prov
erbial skill in argument of cold
facts, planked down the following;
There are several months in the
year that we make but little more
than our board and clothes. Withl
the wasres we get and the
on goods so close and the general
hard times, it is all we can do "to
the necessities of "life. We
are too close runn to ouv our
selves or our children such books
and magazines as we ought to have.
In short life is a, constant worry and
not worth living."
The argument for the negative:
Gentlemen: 'We - are living, we
are dwelling, in a grand and awful
time, in an age on ages telling, to.
be living is sublime.' Ail of the
magazines published in this country-cost
ou,aivaverage about $3.00,
and the leading dailies about $5.00,
while the weeklies are $1.00. Now
3tou would if you could, probably
take a magazine at $3.00, a weeklv
for $1.00 and pay 5.00 for a daily,
but can not take all -you would like
to. You will find in the association
rooms between $80 and $100 worth
of reading matter, whicli we give
you forSl.OO, i. e., considering that
to be One-third of our privileges.
"A good bath room with hot and
cold water is a luxury whicli but
few comparitively can afford. Have
you a cold $100 to fit up such a com
fort? An ordinary bath at a barber '
shop will cost you twenty-fivecents.
Now to make our opponents rue
what they have said regarding life,
we will give you two baths per
week for a year, 104 baths tor $1.00;
considering that to be one-third of
our privilege. One bath per week
for a year would be $13. Now,
honorable Judges, how much have
been saved? Just $2Z
".We have at present abouc 1,000
volumes in our library that you can
use or let your family do so. There
are several standard works you
would like to-read, but can't afford
to buy them. How can you con
sistently say that you cannot afford
your family all the books they need
when we make you the offer of the
use of this ' library tor $1?00; con
sidering this one-third of our privi
leges. Now, $300 Is ' the price ot a
membership for one ;year that, ser
cures to you not only the privileges
spoken of, but various -social times
and the privilege of getting into
the lyceum 'scraps." You like a
friendly game, a nice place to write
your friends, or a business letter if
you desire, papers and envelopes
free, a .place to go Sunday after
noons and to spend, profitably the
lay-over or leisure hour; in fact all
that a ihan without bristles could
'Now, Judges, consider well the
points made, and in- addition .to
whatnve have offered we expect to
have a first?class ..gymnasium.
There arc many advantages that
wehave not spoken of.
Now, we want to .meet the argu
ment that our opponents gave,
namely 'that they could not pay
three dollars down in cash.' The
gentlemen can pay one dollar each
month until paid, and get all the
privileges at once; see?" Now, to
convince you that all this is and
inore too, if any one will call, we
wijl give them a ten days ticket
tree. Seeing is evidence."
Later. The judge decided unani
mously in favor of tke negative.
