D. G. COURTXAY, Chairman. T. D. COBBEY, Secretary. Lincoln, Neb., April 12, 1883. INDIFFJi HUNT. 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. fc.li1 " .9mUM IW ill .

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 lessened. The. re is not a housekeeper in Platts mouth but pays almost every clay for butter, eggs, chickens, apples or potatoes, or some ether vegetable, ft higher price than would be paid if we could get the produce from the east side of the river Quite n number of Pacific Junction peo ple come here to trade at the present time, buying our better class of dry goods and groceries. 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 ti success for himself financially, must depend on something else bfsieles the travel; he miiot know what lie is about and to a great extent be depending on the ranting of tho power which lie will obtain. As an advertisement alone, two thous and dolla-a a year is far less than either Hastings, Beatrice or Grand Island have expended. We realize wo have not got tli- live neoiile they have trot in tlnwe towns, but wff think we have seme sufii eiently w ide-aw 'tike to see tli great ad vantages to be derived f: via the si curing of the bridge. By all mean we say let us have the bridg". 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 some surplus. Lincoln Journal. The Mexican government I143 appro priated mon-'-y for tin raurvey cf the national boundary line between the Unit' . ; e x ico. The delay in eur government making a similar apprcpriatie:i fura like purpo-.r: is reprehensible in the extreme. There are indtvieluuls really living in the Unit ed States that claim residence in 3Itxico anil thus avoid the payment of tixes. Let the line be run and the demarcation of the two countries be established be yond preadventure. Arizona Citizen. rt '-. it.l! O r.1:sll!g, 1 1. ., , juiy .1 1,:;,.,; ; , put 1 hat article of food en tha free: lift will- bo met by them with gfnend elisfavor. To give our readers soma idea cf the great quantity of foreign potatoes which aro now pour ing into this (untry, notwithstanding the high tariff on the iu, which is all that nor,' prevents disastrous results anel hold up the price, we clip from the New Yrk 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 trous. "In the event of a full crop in the 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 tempts its solution." DAKOTA AH AN 1HHUE. The New Orleans Times-Democrat sees in the discussion of the Dakota bill eyi uenee th:.t the Republicans "intend to hoist the bloody fhirt again for the com ing campaign." It is unable to see "any connection whatever between the South and Dfdeota." That is bi.e aeiie the T i in 1 -t-Democrat is wilfully blind. Dakota has been kept out of the Union for lo ! these many years by the vetes of tho solid South, and Republicans who protest, no matter how ihiidly, aro aecuscel of waving tho blooely shirt. If the time'ever was when that buga boo disturbed Republican nerves it is long past. The party w ill make its fight on 1 he real issues, and Dakota is one of them. Not one sufficient reason that can be advanced why South Dakeita is not now a Slate of the Union. It has been kept out of its right by the South be cause its admission would increase the Republican strength in the Senate by two votes. Every Democratic paper in 'he North knows this to be a fact, but not one of tliem has the courage to say .-0. Republic an. RIG IIP EDUCATION. Yc plead for the children as well as fur the parents; and thsyshould be edu cated in the most practical and easiest way. They should have the best teach ers the youngest, especially, need the best. It is a radical mistake to place them in the hands of inexperience. We should begin right anel adopt the most approved methods. Of one thing we are convinced. Our instruction is too bookish, too arbitarary, too stiff, too imperious. It presumes too much, and takes too much for tiranteel. It should btj more oral, and verbal ques tioning and explanations ought to be more in vogue in the school-room. A reform is needed in this respect. Let the : ttenticn of teachers be called to this fact, and let them be more pecified and generally reminded of the true art ef teaching. Then we may look for more effective and rapid advancement, as well as more permanent result among the vouth of our land. Nstional Yiew. Evertbo-ov rx-i h ard of the work ef the W. C. T.
