Republicans owe it to themselves to
see that the entire ticket is elected a
week from Tuesday.
John A. Dayies is making friends
wherever he goes, and the outlook for
his election is brighter every day.
Bryan's 24th edition of bis great
Carlisle-Mills speech will be delivered to
the public at the opera house tonight.
Hon. J. G. Tate polished off and
showed up the duplicity of the World
Herald in a scathing manner last night.
The democrarts seem to think that
Bryan can yaDquisn any of the tariff
orators. But remember he will not ask
Mr. Tate to divide any time with him.
The threatene.l general advance in
prices having failed, the democratic con
gressional committee is in search of an
other full grown fake to spring on the
Iiuugation in western Nebraska is
making wonderful advancement. Lin
coln county has 25,000 acres under irri
gation and Keith county has works in
progress which will irrigate nearly o00,
Hon. L. D. Richards began life as a
pile driver and tin: present indications
are that he will resume operations with
that useful but emphatic implement for
one day only on the 4th of November.
No republican can fime a good valid
excuse why he should not cordially sup
port Mr. Sheldon for county commis
sioner. "We have been electing demo
crats riyht along on the county seat is
sue. That question is practically set
tled, there is no earthly excuse fur rais
ing it at this time simply to place another
democrat in office.
Yesterday's cablegrams from London
which contained no politics,
contained -the following state
ment which ought to make the aver
age democrat think a little it nothing
"Trade difficulties are arising in Shef
field out of the McKinley tariff bill
The manufacturers are anxious to cut
down wages in view of the loss of the
American market, and the cutlers' unions
will not consent. At Bradford several
large manufacturers who had spoken of
going to America and starting establish
merits there have changed their minds
in the hope that the bill will soon be
modified or repealed."
When Bertie Hitchcock was display
ing his goods in a western city and des
canting on the certain rise that must
come, a merchant in the audience is said
to haye asked some very annoying ques
tions concerning the matter. It was
after he had gone over the whole list as
presented in Fremont, and shown that
on the dozen articles he had in his pos
session there would be about a 3 rise,
when the folio wins colloquy occurred:
Merchant You say you purchase
these goods at the old prices?
Hitchcock Yes. They have not yet
marked them up. but they are certain to
Merchant Did Falkner assure you
just when this rise would occur?
Hitchcock Not to a day or to the
week, but he assured me that it was cer
tain to come as soon as new goods came
into the market.
Merchant Now let me make you a
proposition. If your Mr. Falkner will
give me a bond that this rise, as you pre
dict, will certainly come, I will furnish
you $100,000 to invest in these goods at
once, and give you half you make on
them. I notice those merchants are ad
vertising that they are still selling at the
old price?, and that those who desire to
purchase before the rise should. come
quickly. Now they are fools. If this
ri", as you predict is certain, and Falk
ner and other merchants actually be
lieved it, they would shut up their stores
and wait and make more money in one
month bv so doing than they could make
in a year under the regular regime. You
do not Iwlieve it, Mr. Hitchcock. Eng
land docs not believe it, the merchant
doe not believe it, and it is only a cry
raised lr the English factor to leat the
party that injures his business. Fremont
The Journal talked of nothing but
the effect of the McKinley bill on shoes
for several days. Why has it dropped
the subject? Is it because the people
will no longer be humbuged.
The winnings of Senator Hearst's
great 3-year-old colt Tournament, this
year, have been about $84,000. The
trouble with Bryan, Nebraska's 3-yearJ
old, is that he is not a winner at all.
The idea that the frothy windy Bryan,
who does not know enough to make but
one speech, and that one he has garbled
from Carlisle, Mills & Co, the idea that
he should frighten any republican as to
his importance, is simply ridiculous.
The gerrymander is almost as distinct
ively democratic an institution as the
shotgun and the false count. This year
there is a fair probability that old El
brige Gerry's device, as represented in
the Ohio rascality, will be knocked out
in the McKinley district,
When the democrats talk about the
alleged increase of the prices ot carpets
by the new tariff Uw, they oyerlook Ithe
significant fact that under the policy of
protection, wbicL is the basis of said law
the prices of carpets have fallen over one
half in this country since 1872.
Senator Paddock did not denounce
the McKinley bill; he simply informed
6ome of the managers of that measure in
the Senate that unless binding twine was
nlaced on the free list he would vote
against the entire bill. It was not put on
and he kept his promise.
One of the most sensible ways of con
sidering criticisms of the low tariff law
is to compare it with the Mills lill, and
see how much better it is in every respect
than that iniquitous measure. Any in
teliigent voter can thus easily satisfy him
self that the republicans are the true
friends of American labor and of sound
and wholesome tariff reform.-Globe Dem
Canada's repeal of its export duty on
lumber which is brought about by the
McKinley tariff, will largely reduce the
price of that product to American con
sumers. This conspicuous benefit, which
come directly from the tariff, will ren
der harmless all the democratic abuse
which can be hurled against the
from this time to election day. N. Y.
The Herald does not garble Mr. Bry
an's statements, but prints what he said
word for word, as it was taken down by
a short hand reporter at the time. The
truth is, he knows he said it, and it's the
truth that hurts him; it's the truth being
circulated here that necessitates Mr. Bry
an's change in program and brings him
so suddenly to Plattsmouth, to address
the unterrified on the status of the demo

A cablegram from Manchester says
that on Thursday the full text of the Mc
Kinley bill reached Manchester, and its
provisions are being freely discussed. It
is now seen that the bill will hit the
high class of prints heavily and fine
goods and cottons generally. The Pall
Mall Gazette is quoted as follows:
When duties were raised by the war tar
iffs, an increase from 20 per cent of duty
on textiles to 50 and (10 per cent played
havoc with our American trade. It was
found impossible to compete with the
American mtuufacturer in the production
of cheap staple products, and so atten
tion was d'rected to the manufacture of
novelties and designs of a superior kind
which found favors and purchasers in
America in spite of the high duties.
Experience has shewn that novelties and
high class products find a market in the
United States regardless of cost.
In other words so much of the tariff as
will not be paid by the British mill
owners will be borne by those unpatriot
ic, dudisnly inclined Americans who in
sist upon having foreign goods at any
cost, while ordinary classes of goods used
by the working people will be manufac
tured at home and sold so.cheaply that
the .foreign manufactuiers of similar
grades cannot compete.
And so Mr. Bryan is "tired of hearing !
about laws made for the benefit of the
men who work in the shops," is he!
Well, there are several thousand men
who work in the shops in this district
who are very tired of Mr. Brvan. It is
a stand-off all around. State Journal.
TnE Journal quotes approvingly what
the Wymore Union has to say about
Connell, and calls it a "staunch republi
can paper." When the Wymore Union
man failed to get in as Pest Master of
that bur;, his republicanism took flight
and he is now trymg apparently to elect
Bryan or Root.
The yast improvements and exten
sions planned by the Santa Fe Company
will make it one of the greatest railroad
systems on the continent, if not in the
world. On the east it haB entrance to
Chicago and St. Louis, on the southwest
to Mexico, and is pushing its line into
the very heart of the Huntington system
SanFrncisco. The empire traversed
by the road, the products and resources
of the country, makes the extension of
the system into Nebraska a desirable un
dertaking. It is already on the borders
of the state, and steps should be taken to
induce the managers to include a Nebras
ka branch in their projects. Suce a road
would open new markets for the products
of the state in exchange for the cattle
and precious metals of the southwest.
This winter will come before the legis
lature at Lincoln a new apportion bill,
and if republicans do not want legisla
tive districts like McKinley ,s congression
al district, a map of which we printed
some time ago, or in other words if they
do not want to be legislated out of a
fair representation they must see to it
that every man on the ticket is elected.
For instance if Cass were thrown into a
district with Sarpy with its 500 demo
cratic majority, the republicans of this
county would not need to nominate a
legislative ticket, it would be doomed to
certain defeat. The same result would
follow if Cass and Sarpy were thrown
into a judicial district, and the only way
to prevent this calamity, is for every re
publican to work from now on earnestly
and zealously for. the success of our
ticket. If you don't like Barnes vote
for him any way. If you don't like
Thomas or Stopher vote for them any
way, through them alone can your inter
ests be safely intrusted. Let no personal
feeling be in the way of success at the
polls, for much more than we have men
tioned depends upon the election of the
ticket that stands every wh-re for a free
ballot and a fair count, and for the con
stitutional doctrine that majorities and
not minorities shall rule.
The poor farmers county
turned out in elegant top buggies drawn
by fine horses at Beatrice the other day.
The parade made the city people envy
the poverty of the down trodden agri
culturists," says the State Journal. Tne
farmers of Cass county are afflicted with
the same kind of poverty. One farmer
that we know of has $00,000 on interest

The democratic papers which have
been saying that $100,000 has been put
into the McKinley district by the repul -licans
for electioneering pui poses now
seem disposed to make the sum $150,

ocrats fright at the prospects in that lo
cality is br-tween .one and a half times
and twice as great as it was a few weeks
Just at present there ought to be a
great demand for Mr. Council's wire

Yes. And Mr. Tate nailed a few of
yours, and clinched thera so thoroughly,
that if self respect was one of your at
tributes, the matter of campaign lies
would not be alluded to again.
Had a republican done the one half of
what Mr. Boyd did in calling out the
militia and shooting down the honest
and sturdy laboring man on the streets
of Omaha, the World-Herald would have
b:iled witli condemnation, and every
column would have enquired, "how can
a man ask far the support of the wage
worker that has attempted to stifle their
organization and has caused one of their
number to be sCot down in the street.
'Sin. Bryan omits a great many impor
tant matters. He talked long and loud
about importations of wheat and corn,
which amount to but little, yet he cow
ardly refrained from a criticism of bar
ley, just as though the farmers did not
raise it. And Why? Because over
$7,000,000 worth of barley was imported
into this country from abroad last year.
The tariff on barley helped the farmer,
