Tin; republican-, of Illinois have held
their state convention and u platform

I'kof. C. B. Barton, of Hamilton
county, is being well spoken of all over
the state for state superintendent of pub
lic instructions. From what we hear of
Lim, the republican party could not do
better. He has been connected with
school work in Hamilton county for the
last eighteen years and has been elected
superintendent of that county five times
within the last twelve years.
Since the presidential election of 1888
nineteen votes have been added to the
electoral college, counting the six which
Wyoming and Idaho will contribute.
Sixteen of these, at least, are safely re
publican, the only doubtful ones being
those of Mon'ana, and even Montana's
are reasonably certrin to be republican.
These facts should be borne in mind in
the estimates which are to be made of
the chances in 1892.
With the next issue of Harper's Week

are placed side by side, and the changes
which have taken place in the
city during the last three cen'uries are
graphically presented to the ye. The

an article by Henry Iuman, entitled "The

'I hey would have to Confe.-s, if they did,
that they were opposed to this bill be

admit the truth. Everybody knows the
real reason of their opposition. Tin y can
call the bill what they please. It is u bill
to secure honest elections and they don't

constitutional objections to' the b'ul, but
it is a bill for honest elections and they
don't want it. They may taik about the
expense of its enforcement, and mag

mains that the. bill is for honest elections
and they don't want it. Why not be
honest and say so ?
MEASURING THE MOON'S HEAT
The problem of measuring the moon's
heat has been solved at last by one of
the professors at South Kensington
Iiv means of ouartz filaments, he has
produced a thermopile of almost incred
ible delicacy. By thi3 remarkable appa
ratus he can render sensible the heat of a
candle up to the distance of a mile and
three ouarters. and by directing the
minute-disk of the instrument, to the
moon, he has shown that the warmth re
ceived from its reflected liglit is equal
to that given by a candle twenty-one
feet distant. Observation seems to show
that, although the moon's face is under
the blaze of an unclouded sun for four
teen days, it remains comparatively cool,
and that whatever heating it does ul-
timely receive is rapidly gained and as
A QUICK COURTSHIP
One of the shortest courtships resulting
in marriage that has been heard of for
some time was that of William W. Jones
and Bridget Conway. The young woman
was employed in a laundry at No. 19
Broadway. Last Monday, Mr. Jones, of
Chicago, went to get some clothes he had
at the laundry. Talking with the owner
of tiie place, Mrs. Maley, he jokingly re
marked that he was going to New York
to look for a wife. She told him he
needn't go so far and called in Miss Con
way, introduced them, and left the room.
Mr. Jones, after talking a short time, pro
posed and on her request furnishing good
reference as to who he was. she accepted-
They at once went to the court house,
procured a license and were soon married
by a magistrate.
They left that night on atrip, and
will make their home here on their re
turn. The bride is only 1G years old.
Stop thief, is the argument of the dram
shop on every side. The organB of the
whisky ring are howling now about the
ciiurche8 of Nebraska opening their doors
to the temperance advocates. The aver
age saloon keeper is outraged over the
thought that our churches are actively
on the side of the prohibition amend
ment. If the church would not be on
that side we would like to know where
it would be? The saloon is on the other
side, it represents the cause of intemper
ance, the cause of vice; it is the school
of crimel Its bar-tender presumes to
dictate our municipal politics; he says
more than the most influential man in the
community, who shall be our school di
rectors, our councilmen, our city treasurer,
our mayor. He opens his place of busi
ness to the ward politician and bummer,
and dictates very largely who our rep
resentatives in the legislature shall be;
he blackmails every man who even as
pires to run for an office, no matter how
a nail, or how large and important. Then
why not the churches take a hand? Has
the saloon any greater interest or right
in a community than the church? Let
not the whisky advocate overlook the
fact that the antagonists in this amend
ment fight are the church and the saloon,
and the people must not forget this fact
either. No one knows better than the
saloon keeper that the church is his
natural and common enemy. It in very
plain why the whisky advocate objects
to the churches taking a hand in the
THE LET-ALONE POLICY.
The favorite argument of the demo
crats with regard to the southern situa-
ion is that the souht should be allowed to
work out the problem for herself. This
has a plausible sound, but what does it
really signify ? To speak of leaving the
rectification of national evils to local in
fluences when these influences are noto
riously responsible for the existence of
such evils is to talk obvious nonesense.
The south has been let alone in this mat
ter for the last twenty years, and what
has she done to justify that policy ?
There is not a single law .on the statute-
book of any southern state that can be
said to guarantee protection to the col
ored man in the exercise of the rights of
citzenship. But there are laws in plenty
t- curtail his privileges and opportuni
ties, and to discourage him in the work
of self-support and self-improvement.
He has le-s freedom today than he had
at the beginning. That is to say, iu all
these years since the day of his emanci
pation he has nut been permitted to make
th : leat progi e.-s in ft political sense.
Tiie constitution ne a:.s absolutely ncth
iug to him; it lias b..-i n suspended so far

If the south had iinni J cstcd u sincere
and coii'-i.steiit d( sire to enforce jflsiice
and to give the colored race a fair chance
for political develop nciit, thus would
be no demand for federal intervention.
It is because she has not shown such a
d sposition that th-r people of the north
are unwilling to tru-.t her further in tiie
matter. Sue has had a fair chance to
vindicate her professions of fidelity t(
the hiterests of republican government
and the result is that a large element o
her population has been deprived of it
vital rights and condemned to utter ex
elusion from politics. The southern situ
ation has grown steadily worse under the
policy of letting the South manage things
for herself. There is no suggestion of
any improvement. The sentiment that
rules the south is unconditionally against
the idea of equal rights for all citizens
and equal facilities for all classes. One
man does not count for as much as anoth
er in any particular. The discriminations
are pronounced and comprehensive, and
the whites have usurped full control of
all local, social and political agencies
There is no way for the disfranchised and
ostracizeel element to assert itself. The
measure of its subjection is complete, and
its outlook for the future is discouraging
from every point of view. It is useless
to expect the south to change the condi
tion of things. She is satisfied with it,
and resolved to perpetuate it. Her pur
pose is to maintuin white rule auel pre
vent the colored people from taking any
part in public affairs. She makes no
other promise-. That is why the north
protests against the theory of leaving t! e
case longer in her hands. There are some
features of it that can be corrected by
federal inference; and national safety re
quires such action to be taken.

Activity tn Cass.
Fr iin Monday's Daily.
The Ashland people can scarcely con -
ceiye why $400 of South Bend money
should go farther in securing a railroad
than their offer of $15,000; ;.et there are
evidences that cannot now be mistaken
that the Rock Island, from Omaha to
Lincoln, will cross the Platte- at South
Bend, and add one more live town to the
already replete list of flourishing Cass
With both the Missouri Pacific and
Rock Island building across the county
this year, an activity will be created not
hitherto experienced in old Cass, and the
tendency will evidently be toward an in
crease in reality throughout the county
and espebially in the towns through
which these two important lines are being
built . And in this connect ion we should
say real estate values are low in this
county, as compared with many ofjthe
western counties, never having under
gone a socalled boom.
It should not be a surprise to our
neighboring counties then, should we
make some extraordinary strides this
year, owing to the amount of road being
built within the county, and to the fact
that realty kvalues have never been
boomed or expanded even in proportion
to the importance of the county.
Several loads of railroad tiling have
been hauled out to the line of the M. P.

Saturday's Lincoln Call says there was
a rumor that D. A. Campbell, of this city,
had been agreed upon for clerk of the
supreme court. Mr . Campbell is in every
way well fitted for the position, and will
fill it with approved ability.
The county commissioners are in ses
sion today for a general transaction of
business and to make the annual tax levy
for 1S90- The total valuation of the
county on which the levy will be made
for the year 1890 is $5,205,824, while for
the year 1889 it was $4,76f,8S4.

The state democratic central committee

Arbor Lodge, (which being interpreted
means J. Sterling Merton) in the region
round about the ancient city of Nebraska
City, and the youthful Irish barrister,
Bryan; of the capital, who, it is said is
about as well versed in the free trade
doctrine as the elderly Morton, and that
will be the test of the eligibility of the
victim to undergo the ordeal of a demo
cratic effort to become governor of Ne
braska. The name of J. Sterling Morton
sounds familiar, somehow, in political
matters and we believe he has asked the

twice before this; but Mr. Bryan seems
