Angels with wings and busters of whiskey rings That is what the republican party is made of. What is tne democratic party made of? Rebels with horns, who make whiskey ef corn. That is what the democratic party is made of Democrats can't sing, so they keep mum, and keep the weather eye open for a few county and state offices this falL Geneva Democrat. The democrats have had another sweep ing victory in Alabama and Kentucky. Their journals announcing the fact, say there was no opposition to the democrat ic party. Just bo! That's the reason that party so stoutly protests against the lodge election law. They do not want any opposition and will not tolerate it so long as they have the machinery of the returning boards in their own hands. Had a fair free election been held in Al abama it would have been a sweeping republican victory. The peoples ticket has been in the field now for low, these several days, yet we hear very little about it. The brilliant apportionment envoi ved by Farmer Todd .for the precincts when the labor organi zations of the county exist does not ellicit much comment favorable to that ticket. Three 'delegates for the 4th ward of Plattsmouth and ten or a dozen for Gov. Todd's own precinct, is argument enough for the common laborers that it is his vote only, the goyernor needs; the other part of the game the governor could play without the aid of the laboring man. By the way, the goyernor will make a very loud speech to our laboring men some of these days, if he gets the opportunity so to do, when he can explain the beauties of eighteen hours a day instead of eight hours. THE COMING AMENDMENT The manufacture, sale and keeping for ale of intoxicating liquors as a bever age are forever prohibited in this state, and the legislature shall provide by law for the enforcement of this provision. j The Platform. -J he -iiiiiiitt e on resolution repotted at 2 , a. hi. wit" " follow nitf .;atlri : ; li LU.-li-. i sol r,rbinlca r-ym9nd conn 11 v :mi..is.: tli iiiiMlaiii-ntul principles of llir iepulil.c:i-i p;ut. .-li'lltcialed by a .

Float Convention. Owing to a misunderstanding regarding the date of the convention the same was adjourned to meet at Nebraska City, Saturday. Aug. 3oth. 1890. at I o'clock p. m for the purpose of Plac ing in nomination a representative for the 8th Representative District and to transact such other business as may come before the con- v tl tion. Wm. OslssDirhibb, Chairman. Business Outlook. The opinion among business men is that the coming six months will be more profitable, both as to margins and vol ume and business than the last half of 1889. Just at present business is dull. Business men, manufacturers and finan ciers, all feel a certain degree of un easiness over the effects of silver legisla tion and the pending tariff bill. If busi nes men have their outside influence everything would prosper; manufactur ers would increase their business, New York would ba prosecuted and every thing would moYe along just as the most hopeful could wish. New York banks are making money and if their high profit mean anything they show that there is a necessity for a large supply of money. There are in the city ninety-three banks, with an aggre gate capital and surplus of $123,578,700 Their net deposits amount to $483,901, 800. Their loans and discounts foot up aQ7 aai. nnr. The value of Stv.w.,-J- banks and banking in New York is proven by the' fact that the shares of each of these banks are worth all the way from par up to $4,830 per share Nineteen banks declare annual dividends of 10 per cent and over. The stocks of thirty banks at the last sales made, sold at $200, or over per share. The par value is $100. One bank, the Chemical, earns 150 par on its capital. No wonder then that the west is . calling for more money, and not of the kind which the New York banking interests have the giving of. Economists have for many years figured out that the average in crease of wealth ia about 3 per cent per annum. ' Banks which make 10 per cent ana from that up to 150 per cent, do bo only by legalized robbery of the public Journal of Commerce. A dispatch from Clarinda to the State Register of the fifth, gives the f ol lowing account of how Clarinda people deal with supreme court saloons: J, II, Arnold opened an original pack- age house in this ciy about ten days ago He was permitted to continue business uninterrupted until Thursday of last week when ncommim-e of 100 ladies waited on him and presented a petition signed by 600 ladies of the city asking him to close up and leave quietly. Al though treating them courteously he de clined to close. In the afternoon he was arrested on thirty-eight counts and the triul set for today. County At torney Stockton and Clark & Hill pros ecuted, aud attorney Sullivan, of Creeton and II. E. l.r?low, f this city, defend ed. On the calling of his case his attor neys proposed to pay all cost, permit the issuing of an injunction, take his stuff and leave the city for good. The citi zens' committee on the prosecution agreed to this and defendant settling up was discharged: We notice a republican club has been organized in Omaha with several of the old stagers of that city as members. Now if those gntleuien can be prevailed on to vote the republican ticket some thing will have been accomplished. Mr. Carltlk says the 15 cent tariff on potatoes adds that amount to the cost per bushel. If the rains had been plenteous, potatoes could have been bought for 15 cents per bushel here in Cass county. Will thee free trader tell us what would become of the 15 cent tariff! The dear farmer understands "the World-Herald and all its anxiety on his behalf. The young man who wastes his substance on the World-Herald has about as much interest in the poor farm er as the three card man has in bis vic tim. The mock solicitude of that news paper for the granger reminds one of the string game the fakir plays on the greeny of our county fairs. The Lincoln correspondent for the World-Herald manufactures a very thin interview with an "they say", a promi nent man from Cass county who appears to be an ardent admirer of Mr. Michael Cavev of Elmwood. The immaginary correspondent downs the Hon. John C. Watson with the Hon. Mike in great shape, and nominates and elec's Mike as our float representstive. The proba bility are that Mr. Cavey is not a can didate. To give our readers some idea of the influence, which the tariff question has upon business will state, that at this time, Mr. J. M. Kittleman, of this city, has now on hand 23,000 lbs of wool which he cannot sell. Why? Simply because in the United States congress the McKin- ley tariff bill is pending and the great woolen industries of the country, will not purchase any more wool until they know of that bill. Mr. Kittleman tells us that the moment the McKinley bill pase3 and is signed by the president, wool will ad vance five or six cents per pound and that sheep will be good property to own in this country, The business of the en tire country is crying out for the passage of the McKinley tariff law. The repub lican party owe this to the country and it should hurry up matters. Indianola, Iowa, nerald. AN ARMY OF THE RESERVE. Lincoln News. Within the past few years the military spirit has taken possession of all the so cial and benevolent organizations. From the first uniformed commandry of Knights Templers there has grown an extraordinary prodigality of uniformed ranks within the other orders, until at the present rate the total membership of this citizen militia has attained the pro portion sofa vast standing army. The United States is a nation of peace The maintainance of the ;regular army and the various state militias are on a strictly peace footing. Why, then, this constantly growing host of embryo sold iers, who are daily being drilled in true millitary style and thereby becoming a yast volunteer malitia? Without gov ernment support' or even official sanction the uniformed ranks of the benevolent orders are being skilled in the primary militia requirements, and thereby adding to the security of the goyernment with out the outlay of a single official dollar The explanation as given by the Chicago News, of what appears to be an anomafy is after all a simple one. The growth of the military spirit within the benevolent orders has been primarily due to a spirit of rivalry, in which re splendent uniforms and prizes for su perior drill play an important part. a There is, however, a secondary and per haps sisnificant motive in this military movement. The manly art of soldiering has always been attractive under all civilizations because of its physical benefits and lessons of discipline, no les than its capacity to dazzle the multitude on dress parade. The military movements in American benevolent orders may be another in stance of "building better than they knew." Accepting as true the axiom of old world governmenrs that the highest guaranty of peace is the equipment and maintanence of vast standing armies, the United State Is creating "an army of the reserve" that may be found useful in troublous times. How's This? What's the mutter witii our neighbor who has been for the past few years such an ardeut admir e of that horny handed granger, Van Wyct, ol Otoe'f Here we haye the old man ruoniug for congress in this district absolutely anil dead sure running fur congress and no evidence of rapture, not a yawp of hysteria Farmer Van Wyck nominated and running for congress iu this district and the Journal supporting a sprig of u lawyer from Lin coln, a railroad lawyer at that! le Gods, what times we are happening upon. NOT A SPRING CHICKEN. Rumor has it that the late Senator Van Wyck aud his friends insists on the denioceatic party pulling the "young Mr. Bryan" off the track. The old gentle man is reported to have said in substance, "if the mossbacks of this district expect me to help their coarse they must recip rocate. They can t have free sugar irom me withont a corresponding gain of some kind. I organized the peoples' indepen dent party, worked for it early and late, and it would never have been called to gether at Lincoln had I not planned the whole matter; then, they tossed me over board for an unknown man who can neither talk nor work an ex-county com missioner from Hitchcock county. Now then these fellows undertook to let me down by a nomination for congress and the democracy turn around and put up an understrapper of a young railroad lawyer and expect me to help elect him. Not much gentlemen! I am not in that business." The general's Otoe friends, who are close to him, say he is not in an enviable frame of mind and is not going to help send a frothy young bourbon to congress in this district. LODGE ELECTION BILL. The statesman of the World-Herald hits the nail on the head, from a dough face standpoint, when discussing the lod-e electioh bill. The World-Herald is opposed to the measure because, as it ayers. the federal supervision would not be non-partisan. As there is but one po litical party allowed to exist in several of the southern states, and that party is the democratic party. The World-Herald rightly assumes the supervisors would not be chosen from that party which has been supervising the ballot box in the south with every nevarious device con ceivable from the shot gun to the more refined method and all such develish de viceshence the World -Herald assumes the supervisors would be prejudiced airainst the democratic party. That journal has not the fool hardihood to as sert that the supervisors would prevent democrats from voting or interfere with them or intimidate them in any way, it has no such notion; it has no idea how ever, that the supervisors might stand around and see that everydody entitled to a vote had an opportunity to do so and that when the voting was done ev eryb ody's vote would be honestly count ed and returned; it is this possibility, which shocks the conscience of the dem ocratic partisan. The World-Herald may rest assured that the suyervisors will not be com posed of southern democratic returning boards. The 60 -called force bill is not framed for that purpose. The object of that bill is to see that the fellows who have been forced to take to the woods about election day may have a chance to visit the polls and vote and be count ed without danger of assassination. The "outrage upon the American people" which the World-Herald talks about is just exactly what the so-called foree bill is organized to prevent. It is very pret ty for a northern doughface to spout about "a perversion of our form of gov ernment" by taking steps to guarantee fair elections in the south. The "per versian" has been carried on down there for more than twenty years and it is to stop such south American practices that congress has concluded to turn over the democratic liyer in the south. We rath er guess the democratic 'party can stand a fair election in the south when it finds it can't help itself. HEFTY. The attempt of the Omaha democratic organ to attack Mr. Richards is as silly as it is ridiculous. Mr. Richards nomi nation is evidently very annoying to The World-Herald, but it can't ba helped. He is a gentleman, a business man, and a first class citizen without spot or blemish and it is not to be wondered at that his selection as our next goyernor should disturb the common enemy. Surely, it would be a very weighty reason for Om aha republicans to vote a democratic ticket, because the state central commit tee sees it proper, for its own conven ience, to meet in Lincoln? But this is the weightiest reason yet given by the World Herald for the republicans to vote the democratic ticketThe World Herald is nothing if not a plunger. BLAINE AND DEMOCRACY. Is is jast beginning to dawn upon the democratic intellect that Mr. Blaine's reciprocity doctrine, which he proposes, to inaugurate with the South Wrican states, if adopted, vll kii 'ikMi - - trae nvmia into a co'. k- 1 ' " g ishin i'""' h r. t f-'i-i "ii i d d for by Mr. C'.ev. iiiiul ai.d his pn.v i j open our tiiii: ki-u o to tlu-di rif '- of the world without con is; ui.dn-i, 1,1 , fits, feems to ) ab-mdoue'l v! yr- Blaine is endorse. i ami tin- ?" e statesmen are ji.st .lii-ovi-rnii; il t. 1 A wkitkk in tnef tic r-vi'-ws .-ru lating on tin-p'.-ililny. uml t r i-ult-iiS , an attempt uu luo pmt ol UixaC B;iU;.u to subdue the United States to compliance with her wishes estimates that the job would cost her not less than $7,500,000. 000. Ho arrives, at this conclusion by figuring on the basis of what the Reyoln tionary war cost the mother country per captia of the population of the colonies. As the debt of the empire is now nearly $0,000,000,000, that country would be ripe for a receiver by the time it got through with a new war of tu'juation with this country. This would be a pretty costly job. This Atchinson Champion has been bought by demoerats and changed out and out id to a free trade paper. But there is one thing that the purchasers of the late Governor Martin's paper did not buy, and that is the former subscribers to that paper. They will drop it like a hot potato. Democratic journals that are crowing over "the conversion of the Champion to free trade" are afraid to tell the reason of the change. Careless Shooting. From Thursday ,s Dally. Last evening, as usual at that hour, quite a number of people were gathered upon th east side of the depot awaiting the arrival of trains. A man was seen out on the sand bar, with a gun, who appeared to be hunting snipe. Presently crack went the gun, and to the discomfiture of many of the waiters, the ball came singing by, strik ing the side of the depot, glancing off and hitting the ice house close by, and leaving a very perceptible mark. " Search was immediately made for the spent ball and was soon picked up from the platform, somewhat battered, but was still intact enough to tell it had been fired from a Winchester. Some parties took the ball and went up to interview the shootest, John Clouse, who avowed he only fired one shot, and that was directed toward the Iowa shore. He afterward, however, admitted to haying fired twice, but both shots he declared were aimed in a different direction from the depot. It was fortunate that the ball was elevated and passed too high to hit any one. It is difficult to discern how this random shot was fired, as it would hardly be expected a man would fire at a bird on the wing with a rifle, and it would not seem credible that a sane per son would deliberately fire at the depot building. The theory of the matter is that young Clouse accidentally let the gun go off, then out of fear of being ar rested denied firing in that direction. This should be a warning to others about carelessly handling fire arms. In County Court. Judge Ramsey appointed the follow ing commissioners today to condemn right of way for the Chicago, Rock Is land & Pacific Railway Company: Silas C. Patterson, James A. Walker. Louis C. Eickhoff, John Kleyer, Alfred S. Cooley and Frank A. Creamer. Summoned to appear befare the county judge on Au gust 11th, 1890, to take the oath of office. The following cases were disposed of by Judge Ramsey today: The Aennoter Co. vs. Post, Ponsley & Hardy. Motion to make answer more definite and certain sustained. Defen dants given until August 30th to file amended answer. Daniel H, Wheeler vs. Wm. N. Blayh ter for plaintiff. W. L. Browm vs. Plattsmouth Street Railway Co. Judgement for plaintiff. The New Flag:. The president has adopted a new field for the American flag. The addition of a star to the forty-two in the field was necessitated by the admission of Idaho. Two designs were submitted and the design approved incorporates tile presant arrangement of stars and adds a single new star to the first row nearest the staff. The stars have been heretofore arranged in six rows alternately, and this arrange ment ispreseryed in the pew fiag.save that the top row will have seven stars. The design is not symmetrical, but it will become so when another star is add ed to the last row, as will be done next year to represent Wyoming. The new field will immediately be placed in the flag of the army and navy. There are two or three places in the walks on Main street that are in an un safe condition. While other prepara 1 tions are being made so that the town may present a good appearance during the conclave would it not be well to look after the walks a little? Glenwood will contribute from thirty five to forty members of Odd Fellows to attend the reunion next week. PfrjCr.n Pi I POn 6161 tU CI l-dl UU a i i '. In' (Ji't.coiii-:- a,;. a iYovisIoiisT Mi .
