Song of the republican:
What is the republican party made of?
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
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.

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,
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
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
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,

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.
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
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.
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.
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.

to subdue the United States to compliance

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.

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 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.
