MAJ. CALHOUN OK THK SITUATION.
The gracefully rotund editor of the
Lincoln Herald is not only one of the
most finished sportsmen in the state,
but he is unquestionably ono of the
ablest exponents of alleged democratic
principles in Nebraska. No man la
more fertile in democratic sophisms, or
more ingenious in democratic excuses;
and when we find Major Calhoun unable
to account for the results of last week's
election, except In tho most weak and
puerile maimer, that admits tho weak
ness of tho democratic position, wo can
understand how utterly discomforting
recent political revolution is to those
ftl democrats who uro 'less optimistic than

were elected right along until tho fat
man succeeded in breaking the charm.
There is a re-action against the party
in power when the party in power rinds
a people prosperous and happy, and in
Um than a year replaces prosperity with
actual distress, and brings sorrow in ex

reigned. There is a re-action against

democratic policy that has In an in
credibly abort Hptico of time brought
the country from a condition of great
and general pronperlty to a condition of
great and general mifTerlng, with tho
feeling of uncertainty that is alwayH a
curb to progresH and development.
Tho party in 'tower Ih responsible to a
very largo degree for tho prevailing hard
times. Two of tho principal church of
tho deprcsRlon worn the fear that demo

legislation that would hopelessly tin
settle tho ilnaucert of tho country, and
tho fear that thu democratic party, so
llrmly entrenched In -tower, might

that tho democratic party will refrain
from executing its threats of demolition.
Major Calhoun states that hint fall
worklugmen employed In tiirllT protected
industrleH weru confronted by a "threat
ened" reduction of wages. "Tills year,"
ho Hays, "there aro millions of thorn on
reduced wages and short time or alto

their condition to thu democratiu party
and voted accordingly." Exactly. Why
shouldn't they lay their condition to tho
democratic party, tho party whoso onu

and that tho army of unomptoyod under

will not bo disappointed. Tho party has
always looked after tho Interests Of tho
soldiers nnd labored to benefit tho work

AN OVTHAOKOUH ACTION.
President Clovelund deserves and has
received warm praise for many of his
official acts. Ho has, in somo respects,
mado an oxcollont president, and Thk
CouiUEithas on moro than 0110 occasion
expressed its admirution for tho fear
lessness of this man, who by sheer will
forco and determination has risen out of
himBolt into a manhood and strength,
thut whutovcr may bo his mistakes, en
titlo him to tho distinction of great
ness. Any man who can evolvo himself
from u grovelling und bestial political
pack horso into a man of parts, and
ascond to tho presidency- of tho United
States is unquestionably u great man.
Mr. Cleveland's will forco has brought
him much credit and won him many
victories, liut will forcu may easily be
come bull hcadodncBS, and lead to an
irreparable blunder, and this is what
has happouod in tho case of tho gentle
men who now holds tho office of presi
dent of this country and is supposed to
embody the principle of republicanism
upon which this country was estab
lished and has slnco been so successfully
v It has remained for Mr, Cleveland, of
all tho men who have been elected to
the presidency, to be tho first to uso the
mighty machinery at bis commund in a
determined and un-Americun attempt to
crush out the glowing embers of liberty
and hopo iu a country that has strug
gled in squalor uudor tho burden of un
offensive and unprincipled monarchy,
sustained by jobbery and corruption;
and to repluce and revive that mon
archal system, in this instance wretch
edly vile and base, that is tho antithesis
of freedom and equality, und tho one
onomy of the one principle upon which
the nation was founded.
President Cleveland, by the exercise
of intrlguoaud cunning, has advanced
th' Interests of that miserable repre
sentative of royalty, Lilluokalani, ami
by a ntratcgiu movo Ih attempting to
stamp out tho revolt against profligate
desK)tlsm and sent tho ox-queen upon
her throne, which means thoHUppression
of liberty and thu re-establishment of a
system so pernicious that Its Injustice,
iih exemplified in Hawaii, cries aloud to
tho nations of tho world.
Mr. Cleveland, tho highest officer of
what wo uro proud to call tho most en
lightened and most democratic nation
on tho earth, violates tho spirit of the
national constitution, outrages Ameri
can sentiment and ovoirldcH overy con
sldoratlon of right and justlco when hu
sends thu troops of this free nnd repub
lican country to Hawaii to do battle
against tho men who, fighting for liberty
and Independence, over-turned royalty,
and reinstate, by tho spilling of blood,
If necessary, tho queen upon her throne.
Mr. Cleveland Ih tho first president to
become tho enemy of lopuhlicnnism and
tho protector of royalty, and tho spec
taelu Is well calculated to disgust overy
Hawaii had beuu recognized by tho
United StateH iih a republic, and thero
has existed no consideration that war
ranted tho president iu making this
country violate Hh pledge and espouse
tho cause of the dethroned queen.
Tho influences behind Llliuokalanl
aro of thu basest and most mercenary
sort, and tho president, in taking up thu
cause of tho queen, has played Into the
hands of the Kngllsh Interests, the cor
rupt and powerful political jobbers that
dominated the country under Lllluo
kalani'H rule. IIIh action could not pos
sibly bo moro un-American or morn un
just. Thk ContiKU can hardly be accused
of unfair partisanship when it sayn that
if President Harrison had been re
elected the Hawaii case, instead of drug
glng along for a vear, would havo been
disposed of at once, and that lepubll
canlsm In Hawaii would by this time
havo been 11 settled and dellnite fact.
"1'itoKTiTUTin.N and illicit liquor sel

police judge turns in 91,100 an bis re
ceipts from lines und costs in six months,
and yet tho mayor and tho council and
tho excise board give no sign. Aro tho
members of tho council satisfied that
everything is as it should bo? Is tho
mayor satisfied that tho laws' aro being
enforced and thu decent element of tho
community protected?" All of theso
things havo been brought to tho atten
tion of tho mayor, who is tho respon
sible party, and as time goes on tho
hypocrisy, doublo dealing, brazon as
suranco, and general humbuggery of
A. H. Weir becomes moro und moro
apparent. Tho mayor isn picturesquo
and colossal fraud.
I'OHT KI.KCTION NUUAIIItl.IXU.
Republican politics in this county has
not lost its zest slnco tho election. Tho
election of thu whole republican tickot,
with just ono exception, lias been fol
lowed by a discharge of accusation and
abuse that seems to be, from a party
standpoint, particularly undesirable.
Tho News, iu whoso sldo tho fact that
thu CiiU'h editor, Mr. Ilushncll, is chair
man of tho republican county central
committeo, is a thorn that sorely pricks,
charged Mr. llushnoll with a misappro
priation of campaign v funds, and Mr.
Dushucll, in his reply, pokes up whut ho
calls tho "Wcstermaun outfit," und
charges that the News had to be placated
during last year's campaign by ?!200
"boodlo" money. And tho News further
turns its diminutlvo batteries on Mr. R.
U. Graham. And thero are other
charges and unpleasuntesses; ull of
which, appears to us to bo out of place
ut this time. Mr. Smith, tho purty can
didate for sheriff, was not used properly;
but it wus something to elect tho rest of
tho tickot, and it would bo much better
to spend tho post election season in
glorification than in ubuso und villillca
tiou which can do no good.

In an interview witli tho Washington

"Tho populists mean well, but too

came while such idiots wero In tho
