and. the Sepmblicaa Pttitiei,
-i- tie wra last week devotes mmy
columns to the printing- o'fviit opiri
ion of Judge Neville ou the subject
of irrigation. We are glad to find
that Judge Neville claims to stand
with the republicans upon this prop
osition. We desire, however, to
takeiiexceptions to the comment
inadeby the editor, when he says:
"It is a positive relief in these days
w.hen so' many courts are tainted by
corporate influence in finding every
law unconstitutional, to tmd one
judge who is not afraid to standby
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 Sk Rainer law, he being the
republican representative from this
district. What did the legislature
of 1891 do upon the subject ot 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. Thejegislaturebf 1891
was populist by a large majority,
and Ste ens the bi gun, but no
legislation upon this all important
question was passed.
The legislature of 1893 was not so
ovenvhelmiugly populist, the re
publicans and democrats haviqg
control of the. senate, and some
aminendments were passed upon
this subject. Seepage 377 of the
laws of 1893. But in the year 1894'
the 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
Bubthe-Erasayjs courts tainted
by corporate influence find laws
made for the people unconstitu
tional. Then this irrigation law which
was enacted b' the republicans was
made for the people. Now who are
the attorneys in western Nebraska
who went into court iid affirmed:
the unconstitutionality of the irri
gation law? No other than our own
and only Thomas Fulton Gantt.
e did i his 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
uie siae oi tue 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 corporate-influence, 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 judge ap
peared in both the home andMhe
supreme courtsinthe case above re
ferred to, aud 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
wili be found that many ot the
arguments therein contained have
found their way into the irrigation
opiuiou printed in the Era of last
The Era admits that the
tion law is an act iri the interest of
the people, and a question iri which
the people of western Nebraska are
intensely interested in. This being
true what action was taken by the
populist party in their. late conven
tions upon this question? Nothing.
Read their county, judicial and
state platforms and not one word
will be found committinar that oartv
to the furthering of irrigation enter-
pnses. But pjr the contrary the
Lincoln county republican conven
tion whichmominated its candidates
fqr county oces committed itself
strongly to the subject of irriga
tion. The judicial convention which
nominated Mr, Qrim.es, and the
-platform upon which he is makjng
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
adopted without: dissenting vote,
the following uoon the sbiect nf
"The republican party, always
loreraost in tu marcn ot progress,
recognizes the, importance of irriga
tion to the people- of the western
part of the'state and we pledge the
party to the same friendly spirit in
tue consideration xt luture legisia-
fioa as it exhibited toward "these
interests in the enactment of the
first ireneral irrigation law in 1889
and again in 1895, upon its return
to power in both hokses of the legis
lature when it-greatly extended the
features of the law of lBHy and in-
eluded provisions for the orgfani-
tion of irrigation districts.
"And we hereby aslc the.cohgress.

laws as will determine thefrights

PAK0TIS DE1ATE DECIDED IN FAVOR OF
"THE HAED 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
livinor these hard -times?."
The gentlemen, on the affirmative
took the floor and with their prov
erbial skill in anrument 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. With
the wagres we sret and the
on goods so close and the general
hard times, it is all we can do To
sret the necessities of "life. We
are too close runn to buv 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
-uentiemen: 4 we-are imncr, we
are dwelling, in a grand and awful
time, in an age on ages telling, .to
be livjnir is sublime.' Ail of the
magazines published in this coun
trv cost ou.aivaverage about $3.00,
and the leading dailies about $5.00,
while the weeklies are $1.00. NoYv
you would if you could, probablj

to be one-third of our privileges.
