CON IH'CTKO BY MKS. J. N. WIsK -
To whom Mil coiiuieiiilcatluiis for this deparl
inciit I'liouUI be addiUNsed.
Wo have been astonished since Me
became intcrcs'ted iu thi trtujierauce
work, to tin I so many theoretical tein-peiau-.-e
people in Plattsinoutli. They
can tell you exactly how the tiiinperance
work should be carried on; they can in
form you iu every im-tance where our
temperance woik lias failed, what whs
the caue of the failur ami the reined v:
Hit y cm; shake their hi ads over nnd t e
wnil the fate of the poor wretch who in
drinking himsell to death, and applaud
the prudence of the moderate dtinker,
who "knows when to stop.' Hut when
you a-k them to put their shoulder to
the wheel, to give their means and their
influence to help crush out this terrible
evil, they shrink back, and say ' it's'
quite impossible fcr them to do any
thing; the method is all wrong,' and
thev cry out in fivnr of personal liiierty,
as it this frame did not lake away per
sonal liberty and leave its v't'' ho e-
legs wreck.. ..I it nece.siry 10 tl"',"'l("
on th's .-uliject. when it is so tr.iiiicully
set t'ortti on niir .reels every day J
Vc have n et ivid quantities of g od
iidvice on ti.- mall iii-nieut of our tem
peirince ro'iimn. We like good advice
iinir.ensi I .-, ( w e tlon't alway- tako iti.
V- know when people are willing to be
stow a.Kice oral iiitou-Iy. Ilmt they are
somewhat Interested in the su'-iect on
which they advise.
Says one o)td gentleman friend
'You must be very careful not to write
'I'nyt'iiir.' pi r.-o:ial ; confine yourcd to
.-tatii-! ics. they nre always safe; u.-e the
scissors liberally, but dont say anything
about drinking in Piattsmouth, a great
many of our best citizens drink."
I took the advice meekly; but when I
sat down to hunt up statistics, it kept oc
curring to me that if I had a husband,
son, or brother, or anybody belonging to
me wlio was a drunkard, the one gallou
of liquor that they consumed would be
of fur more interest than the hundreds of
gallons annually consumed in Great
Britian, and that while it is always in
teresting to know what the various tem
perance organizations are doing in other
cities, we w tild be tar bolter pleased to
know what the temperance people in
-Piattsniouth are doing to reclaim those
who have gone astray, and what steps
arc being taken to prevent o'hers from
falling. We think direct, earnest, Chris
tian appeals from well known men and
women in our midst, are worth more
than all the statistics that were ever com
piled. Send us an article for the tem
perance column that w ill appeal to our
young men; and if you can think of imv
particular one that you would like to
reach, that will not probably read the
column, mark it and send it to them;
they will read it then, and the thought
that you cared for and thousht of them,
will make it of ad.iitional interest.
Dr. John Hall, in an urticie entitled,
'A Thing to Cry Over," touches in a p i
thetic manner the common habit of
laughing at drunken men. Dr. Hall
stood on a bout in New York harbor.
Not far off was a well-dressed but tipsy
young man. Beside the doctor was a
plainly-dusted man. 'When Dr. Hall
saw the people laughing at the drunk
ard, he saw ia his neighbor's eyes such a
sad, pitying look that he said to him,
"They should hardly laugh at hiiu."
Said the man, '-It is a thing to cry over."
Then he told Dr. Hall of his own wife,
who took to drink in Scotland, and who
promised to reform if he would come to
this country, but did not, and dit?l of
drunkenness; and w hen the doctor hoped
that he had comfort in the children, he
said, "One, the second, is a good g'rl.
The oldest is not steady, I can do noth
ing with her; and the youngest, a boy,
can't be kept from drink. I've sold my
place, and am going to a town in Ohio
where I am told, uo linuor tan be had
to try to save him." Dr. Hall closes
as follows: "Who would not wish for

Resolutions of Thanks.
The following resolutions were of
fered at the session of the sixth an
nual encampment of tho Department
of Nebraska G. A. R., and were unani
mously adopted :
Hesolvfd, That we hereby tender to
comrade S. J. Alexander our heart
felt thanks for his ably and faithful
services in behalf the Grand Army of
the Republic during the past two
years, and in order to show him that
his services and his comradeship are
appreciated, we hereby retiolve that a
committee of three be appointed to
procure a proper testimonial to present
to him in behalf of Department of Ne
braska G. A. R.
Resolved that the able, faithful and
zealous services of Comrade Rind. P.
Cook, assistant adjutant general, are
worthy of the highest piaise. His de
votion to our order, his work by day
and by niht, his exemplitication of
fraternity, charity aud loyalty.endeais
him to every comrade of the order,
aud we, as an encampment, heieby de
clare our appreciation of his eminent
Resolved, That this resolution be
handsomely engrossed and framed,
and the bill be presented to the assist
ant quartermaster general for pay
ment. Resolved, That the sixth annual en
campment of the department of Xe-
braaka G. A R., remember with pride
and pleasure the ethcienl services ren
dered by comrade ". I,. Howell, of
Byon Post, Xo. tl, of Grand Island,
Neb., a a iiuai termaster of the most
successful and elegantly conducted re
union, hold at Grand Island iu Septem
ber lait, that iu the perfect system es
tablished and the smooth and even
tempered conduct cf affairs we recog
nize the master hand of comrade How
ell, to whom we owe much that we
cannot repay. That wo deepiy sympa
thize with him in the temporary afUic
tiyn that prevents his presence with
us to-day, and humbly trust that he
may lecover quickly therefrom and be
asain ready to meet with us in our
business and social reunions.
The committee appointed were com
rades II. E. Palmer, II. M.Wells and
F. E. Brown.
One of the sensible things done by
the late legislature was the passing of
II. R. 1, submitting an amendment to
the constitution extending the time of
the sessions of our legislature to sixty
days, and paying the members a fea
sor able compensation for the time they
are engaged in their legislative duties.
Under our system of choosing our
legislators, ie., electing the entire body
at one and the same time, expet i'.'iice
has taught us that on an average
nineteen out of twenty members elect
ed are men without legislative exper
ience. It takes the average man at least
twenty days to become familiar with
the rules governing a deliberative
body, and with committee work. Take
this with the fact thai every other ses
sion has to choose a United States sen
ator, which consumes the lirst two or
three weeks of the session, and we can
readily see that a limited forty days'
session is and always will be a failure.
Had this resolution made pro
vision for half of the members eh ct
of each body holding over, it would, in
the opinion of the IIekald, have been
still better, for then our legislature
would always have enough of experi
enced members to take hold of the
work of that body and advance it
from the commencement of the session.

Mr. ). W. Poller, who lias shown him
self in several emergencies to be one of
the most sagacious men iu the iron trade,
agrees with the Tribune that lite theory
which cites tlie turift' agitation as the
caue of the iron failures, is all w rong.
'It is not the tariff" (that is. the ta!k in
Congress of lowering it;, said Mr. Potter
in his interview, "that is .doing the mis
chief; it is simply foolish, silly competi
tion running the mills and securing or
ders at less than they can possibly do
the work lor." Mr. Potter might have
added, as he undoubtedly believes, that
what he characterizes as '-silly, foolish
competition'' has been produced by an
excessive tariff, which stimulated produc
tion artificially and attracted more capi
tal than can be profitably employed in
the iron industry. It is this unnatural
competition which has overstocked the
market in spite of unprecedented con
sumption of iron, nud finally broken
down prices below the paying pont.
Some time ago Mr. Potter expressed the
opinion t'.iat the duty on steel rails, that
is now $28 a ton, might be safely fixed
at $14. The present price of steel rails
sustains his judgment. Rails are worth
2o in England; if $14 be added as duty
ana from $;J to $5 for transportation and
handlin", it would cost from $42 to 44
to lay English rails in Chicago. But the
American rails have been selling at from
to 40. Had the duty on rails been
$14 instead ot 33, that figure would
have been enough to slop importation of
rails, aud the price of American rails,
ranging '.u the neighborhixid of $40,
would have repaid investment, but would
uot have attracted so many surplus mil
lions of capital, nor stimulated over-production,
nor led, iu the end, to collapse
and hardship. The same line of argu
ment will apply with more or less force
to all lines of ir.m goxls; if the tariff on
foreign ai tides had liecn a!out one-half
of the present -ates the iroa industry
would le in much better shape than it is

When the democrats in Congress
pretend that they have not been try
ing to obstruct taritt legislation, they
pretend falsely. No intelligent person
who has attentively followed the re
ports of proceedings can have failed
to see unmistakable evidencos of a
settled purpose, not even skillfully
concealed, on the democratic side of
both houses to prevent any action by
the present congress. Mr. .Morrison,
in the house, and Mr Bayard, in t lie
senate, are about the only conspicuous
persons who hm e manifested u willing
ness to accept moderate reduc ions,
taking the best they could Indue, the
majority to concede. Mr. Randall and
other democrats ol the Pennsylvania
variety have, it is understood, been de
sirous of having something done that
would be accepted as a settlement of
the tariff question for the time being,
or until after the elictlon of speaker
of the new house, at least. Aside
from the few men referred to, the
democrats generally have niiiiiiieated
a disposition to obstruct. This is plain
ly to be seen iu the great number of
frivolous and irrelevant amend
ments they have offend, arid in the
lime they have wasted in talking.
When, on Monday evening, Senator
Vance offered an amendment foi the
exclus.-ve benefit of southern moon
fhiniers, and made a long speech in
I support of it, obstruction was obvious-
ly his purpose. And a like purpose
has been made apparent a hundred
times on the lloors of ltotli houses.

From the Memphis Avalanche.
One by one the "free traders" fall
under the wheels of the protection car.
S'ugar captured Louisiana, Wool Texas,
cotton seed oil Arkansas, rice South
Carolina, and now jute has slaughter,
ed the Kentuckjian and Mississippi
"freetraders." If there be one state
more than another that wascounled,ou
to stick to unadulterated free trade that
state is Mississippi. It is eminently
an agricultural stale, and its traditions
are all free trade traditions. There
was still further confidence repos-'d in
Mississippi remaining true to its tra
ditions, because it was supposed lliein
was nothing produced in that stale
that needed any protection. But this
is a mistake. The article has been
found. It is jute. And Senator George
wants a protective tariff for jute, and
Senator Williams, of Kentucky, also
wants juto protected. The senators
are simply performing their duty to
their constituents, but they should not
poise as "free traders."
The foregoing froru tho Memphis
Avalanche is good. A popular cam
paign with its smoke and fume is a
good place to howl fiee trade.but when
our democratic representatives came
under the control ot the speaker's gav
el and are called upon to legislate up
on this question, the commercial in
terests and the welfare of their con
stituents will demand their a.ten
tion as they ought to do. Each one
looks after the welfare of his poition
lar locality and so from the necessities,
requirements and demands of the
whole country. Compared, equalized
and harmonized, an adjustment of du
ties must and ought to bo had.
The least harm to the few and the
most good to the many, should be the
motto of our representatives in hand
ling this many-sided question.
