Lincoln, Neb., April 12, 1883.
Several of our exthangi? throughout
this congressional district a"o favorably
mentioning Mr. Coniiell,' f f)ouglas
countyt a republican candidate far the
positien filled by Mr. MeShanc. The
nnanhnous conclesioii being, that there
is n ustj trying t elect a republican iu
this district with it C,000 republican
majrity unless we take an Omaha man.
Ever sine the republican party of Doug
las county disbanded in fayer of Charlie
Brown as against Judge Weaver in 1884,
the chairman of the republican state cen
tral committee being then a resident of
Doujla county and at the head of the
Omaha Rejtublican and a silent approver
of that treason, we have recognized the
fact that no matter wh the man might
be if, nominated outiido of that papu
lous county he was in danger of defeat.
Still, with Tu:: IIehald this contempta
ble local treason has no weight, if it
means republicanism of that stripe, we
have no respect nor love for it; and, an
Omaha congressman on such a platform
would man juet as much to us, as if he
was a democrat as if he was an, Omaha,
republican for local purposes only. If
Douglas county is to name th congress
man let them name r. democrat and let
the balance of tho district gs down with
tho knowledge that if defeated they have
not been beycetted. We have heard tha
charges rung on the assertion that "There
is no use nominating any man outside of
Douglas county" until we are tired f it.
We have no doubt but there is much
truth in the assertion, yet, we don't rare
about swallawing that kind of medicine.
We presume it makes yery httl differ
ence to Omaha whether that locality gets
McShane or Council and if it is reduced
down to Eirnply a matter en which Doug
las ceunty and Omaha are alona to bo
consulted, we confess we hrive mighty
little interest in it. Wedeu'tknow whsre
Mr. Cornell stood during the past two
congressional contests yet, we have no
recollection of any one voting for a re
publican c;!ndidiite up the re during tho
memorable cntcs-t:;. It w:is, simply, a
knowledge of such a state of political
sffairs is that eosnty that caused repub
licans throughout the distric t to throw
their votes away in ISS'4 and 1830 and
ve are afraid Kuch will bs the case ayuin.
DOOMED TO VIS APPOINTMENT.
The democratic newspapers of the east
announce with a ridiculous assumption
of bravado that a part of their campaign
this year will be directed to the capture
of the United States senate. As the case
now stands, with Mr. Barbour, of Virgin
ia, elected to succeed Mr. Riddlebergor,
and supposing that there are no other
changes, the next senate will be a tie.
With a democratic vice president that
party will control the upper house of
congress; hut the democrats don't pro
pose to be satisfied with this. They are
hoping to capture the legislature of Ore
gon, which is to be elected in June, and
choose the successor to Senator Dolph,
whole term expires next March. Michi
gan is another state to which the demo
crats are looking with hopes born of Post
master General Dickenson. The enly
state in which they believe it possible for
them to loose a senator is New Jersey,
and on that contingency aro speculating
anxiously. Sme recent movements in
that state prove that the administration
is trying to conciliate Senator McPherson
to unite the democratic factious.
Our democratic friends are almost cer
tainly doomed to disappointment. There
is a much greater probability that the re
publicans will gain control of ths lower
house than the democrats will secure a
majoiity iu the senate. Gnzette-Journal.
Captain II. E. Palmek, cf Platts
mouth, is receiving favorable mention
for delegate at large from this st&te to
the national republican convention. The
captain is well qualiiiod for the position
and would prove an honest and capable
delegate. Yi'e have no doubt but the
old soldiers and republicans generally cf
this county would be glad to see hiaa
chosen. Tccumseh Chieftain.
A democr iTic club at Kansas City has
just determined to go in a uninformed
body to the national convention at St.
Louis. They will wear linen dusters,
white plug hats and a red cane. Th?
news item does'nt so state, but the nat
ural inference is they will also wear red
noses. In November they will all be
blue. Fremont Tribune.

- THE PONTOON JIUIVQE.
The Hkkai.ii lias rdwaynziafoulv f av- 1
ured every feasible hi-tne for the im
provement and building up of tho city,
and ban generally met with a heart' sup
port of our businessmen.
WG were compelled during last year at
times, to make uncomplimentary notices
of some members of the city council, for
the reason that some of them were ulilict-
cd with tnlHrgcd ideas of their own im
portance, and at times would vety indif
ferently treat tho petitions of the tax
payers, but our city legislature, since last
year, has been vastly improved, and Tun
IIekai.D hopes the wants of tho people
will not be misunderstood.
Our people have a proposition that is
both feasible ami fair for the building of
a pontoon bridge across the river before
them, which The IIeuai.jj believes should
be accepted without delay.
The rich farm lands lying within seven
or eight miles of this city on the east side
of the river would lie immediately trib
utary to our town, while a great deal of
trade would bo drawn from further
points. The price of hay and several
other firm products would be greatly

We believe the advantages to be gain
eel from the water power furnished will
be well worth considering. Mr. Stewart
has over 15.000 deposited right now in
our city banks, but he cla'r.is he is not
here for his health, and t our way of
Ihinking Mr. Stewart, to make the bridge

No, of course not, farmers! Protiet 'cii
does yen no good whatever, ace ording
to Mr. Mills rtnd Mr. Cleveland. It is
simply a blind, you k::ow, the tariff im
posed on your products, a blind, engin
eered by t lie bloody millionaires that ar'
eating you up. II' co the Mill-; bill
abolishes all tariffs on the products of
the farm. That is, not all, exactly, he
has, owing to his dislike of the south
and his depire to see the agi ieulturi.-ts of
that section go to smash, left all their
products highly protected in his bill.
There is rice for instance. It -rvill he
protected in a horn, you know sinee
protection does not protect, you' know
with a hundred per cent tariff. Sugar
will also be well protected to the ruin,
you know, of the sugar planters, with
about sixty per cnt. Oranges and lem
ons and all those things will b j well
protected. This is, brethern, because Mr.
Mil's is an enemy to the farmer of the
south and wants to jntnp on him.
But he loves you, northern farmers
Mr. Mills de3- and hence he relieves
you of that odious tariff on wool and
grain and meats and all those things you
raise, because he loves you. Blesf el be
the frienel of the northern farmer anel the
enemy of the southern farmer, brethern.
His name is Mills, you know. Mills is
your frtnd. The other men who op
pose the great and good ?-Iills are not
your friends. Do not forget that, breth
ren. lie is from Texas he wants to relieve
you of the bloody surplus. It is a pity
that he hates the southern farmer so
much that he will not rai.se a finger to
relieve them of their surplus. But we
are not to blame for that, brethren. We
will take the good fortune Mr. Mills arel
the gods bring us without asking any
questions, anel scou we will hav no sur
plus to curse us, nothing, brotheru, but
the blessing of debts anel mortgages.
This country is being ruined by the sur
plus. Paste this iu your hat and elo not for
get to remember Mr. Mills in your
orisons. He is a good nan. And Mr.
Cleveland is a good man. They wish to
riel the northern farmer of his burden

Tribune the following: "Tho large re
ceipts of foreign petatoes In t last few
days will sugg est to the reader at first
that the possibility f a scarcity from tho
snow blockade was quickly removed.
But it suggests even moro than that to
the farmers, lo whem it is palpable that
if potatoes an. put on the the free list, as
the "D irk Lantern" bill provides, tlnre
is net the least hope for them to attempt
to "grow" potatoes for tho market. G.
S. Palmer, one ol tho largest elealers in
vegetables, said yesterelay.
"The receipts of foreign potatoes con
tinue to be simply enormous, eno steamer
bringing 21,320 barrels; and notwith
standing it is late in tho season when a
falling eiff should bo expected. During
a recent week the receipts of foreign po
tatoes ut this market were 72,384 barrels,
against 2S,9i barrels for the correspond
ing wcik in 1 537. Taking into consid
eration that last year w had u full crop
in this country, the present influx of tho
foreign article is to large; and fthoulel
the tariff of 43 cents a barrel be removed,
making it possible to sell tho foroign
product at so much less than tho prises
which it hart commanded ranging from
SI. 25 to $2.20 a barrel the effect upon
our farmers anel dealers woulel be disas

Unit eel States, prices must naturally go
lower; and theu can our farmers,
who now have to ttruggle harder than
any other class of mere ixistenco, afford
to raise potatoes upon high-priced lands
and at the present wages paid to farm
hands? This is a problem which Con
gress will find eliflicultto swlv if it at
