TtTE IlEKALD's theory- that the al liance resolutions from Cottonwood, had loo strong a democratic flavor and were put up by tbe democratic end of th;it machine, was proven true by the eagerness -with which the democratic organ in this city printed the resolutions. THE Plattsmouth Journal wants to have McKinley meet Hrj-an at the Commercial Congress in Kan sas Cit3', to receive from him a few points on the tariff. For once we are iiaccord with the Journal.

In his address he says: '"We are told by presumptuous and arrogant partisans and self- constiliiled leaders that farmers and other laboring classes 'should not go inio polities'; that we 'will ruin parties and ruin the country.' Who constitute parties in this country? To whom do political parties be long to 1 lie people or to tne lew who arrogantly assume to control llieiii'r Who has a better right to go inio politics than the farmers of this country?

"Col. Polk will not go to the third party-conference in Cincinnati, but his suggestive address will be in the hands of every suh-hllinnce in the country by the time the conference meets. Polk is an abler man than the countrv generally gives him credit of being. lie knows how to put things to reach the masses. Here is another paragraph worth quoting from his address: After speaking of the 'billion dollars' ap propriated by the Fifty-first con gress, winch he says was a sum equal to $77,000,000 per month; $17,500,(XK) per week; $2,500,000 per day; $104,000 per hour; $1,733 per minute, and $2S per second, he said: '"Let us bear steadily in mind that eighty cents of every dollar of this vast sum came from the agri culturists of this country. These millions besieged the doors of the capitol during that lime pleading for relief. They were turned away empty handed their importunities disregarded, their en treaties ignored and they were in solently admonished to 'keep out of politics,' to 'live closer and work harder.' The great masses of the industrial classes, north and south, democrats and republicans, with out regard to sectional or geo graphical lines, with one purpose and with one heart, have locked their hands and shields in a com mon cause the cause of a common country. They have solemnly re solved to turn their backs upon the past and make one mighty effort to rescue our government and institu tions from impending peril.' Col. Polk niar not go to the Cin cinnati conference, but there is little doubt where lie stands with regard to third party." of it. Two years ago at a cabinet meeting, when the secretary of agriculture was, f'om the youth of the new office, rather fresh at the business, Uncle Jerry chipped in a remark from his end of the council table. Blaine smiled. Then Uncle Jerry flung back this: -'That's all right, gentlemen; I may be the tail of the cabinet, but if I am I'll try to keep the Hies off this administra tion. Inter-Ocean. The alliance talk about our Sen ator Thomas promising to sup port their measures in the senate is pure bosh. How many votes did Senator Thomas receive at the theliandsot the alliance party in this county? Judging from the vote which I,emas(ers received, Thomas did not get a vote from the party that now wants to run him. Thomas would have been a chump to have done violence to his own convictions in order to help a parly that did all in its power to defeat him at the polls. WE have looked carefully through the columns of all the great western dailes and many of the more ob scure ones for a mention of that great Hryan-Filley debate at Kan sas City wherein the young man is reported in the W.-II., as having mopped up the earth, metaphor ically speaking with the Missouri war norse, out not a line can we find except in the World-Herald, which lead- us to remark that we are more firmly convinced than ever that the modest (?) young con gressman from this district wrote the World-Herald report himself, and that the only foundation for it lay in the exuberant mind of the young man who feared the eyes of Nebraska's democracy might be cast in another direction rather than on her favorite son. ' HOW TO PLAY BALL. The popular "Uuck" Kwiug, cap tain of the New York's, has written an article for the Hoy's Department of the Ladies' Home Journal for June, on the "Ins and Outs of Pasc hal I," in which the famous catcher will tell how to play the game; how to form a nine; the hardest posi tions and how to fill them; how to throw a ball, etc. This is Kwing's first article and it is said to be the best which has ever been written for boys on the great national game. THE WAR IS OVER. The Italian premier in remarks to his supporters in the Italian cham ber of deputies yesterday showed very clearly that war was one of the things that could not occur with this country. He expressed him self as being confident of the ulti mate settlement of the whole matter in a manner favorable to the rights of Italy and of those of all civilized governments, all of whom were with Italy on the points at issue. If it - i ... i . 4 . . -.1. ui'it jiioveo io on io.:-i u ii iw g tain a favorable solution of the problem,grave complications would not arise, but he would deem it a matter of profound regret that the people of the United States, so ad vanced in civilization, should show themselves is far removed from the principles of right and justice, uni versally proclaimed and scrupul ously observed in Kurope. From his remarks, quite a" tumble is not iced from the hights where the pre mier had but so recently lodged when he called his minister home His belter judgement has caused his temper to cool, and the futility of attacking this country by force of arms has evidently suggested itself to the Italian statesman.

Two from one town is pretty good. The gang that runs with the ma chine here spends most of its time trying to prevent a Plattsmouth man from being appointed to 3113- thing. There is loo much petty jealousy in this town and county for the good of the people. . President Hakkisoxs trip tlirough the South has been a con tinuous ovation; and his iiiasltTl)' addresses art; 111 strong contrast to tbe pedantic cyclopediau cul Iings which Mr. Cleveland afilicied the people with on a similar tour. The president shows clearer than ever, that lie is a man of broad views, thoroughly familiar with the political history of the country, and capable of making a sound patriotic speech, exae'd' suitable to the occa sion at all times without becoming dull, prosaic or common-place. THE republican administration of national affairs has during its two vears existence paTd off L'lX .0!K ),()() -of the pulic debt, thus stopping interest on a vast sum of money. The l-oikr years of Cleveland did not reduce the debt half so much. The difference was. Cleveland loaned the money from the national treasu ry to favored banks without inte rest, while republican management paj-s off the debts and thus reduces taxation. There is a vast difference between democratic campaign pro mises and democratic methods of taking care of the people. Ol'k" .friend Hrm's mouth got started at Kansas Cit- the other day, and according to the World Herald, it ran away with the entire convention. The W.-II. correspon dent, wliom we have reason to be lieve is none other than Bryan him self, says with much gusto, that the veteran protectionist, Chauucey I. Filley. of St. Iouis. gave an hour's address, which Hryati socompletely demolished in live minutes that the crowd refused to let him stop, and that the young Mr. Pryan talked eloquently for fifteen minutes, leav ing Mr. Filley nothing to stand on. .As a rac' news item some one should read this W.-H. dispatch to the convention. CllAUNCEY Depew, of New York, the noted lawyer and brilliant ora tor, was in Omaha yesterday, and during an interview wiin a news paper reporter, who inquired what he thought of Mr. Blaine's letter to Rudini, replied as follows: "I think that Mr. Blaine's contri butions to the diplomatic literature of this country are the most bril liant productions of the age. The fine Italian hand at the other end of the business seems to care more for a little blue fire and thunder than for the actual merits of the case. Why, the mere idea of Italy going to war with the United States, on such an issue, or on any other issue, is enough to make the gods get up 011 their hind legs and laugh the stars out of their sockets. Since the adjournment of the leg islature and the supreme court our alien governor is allowed to pursue the even tenor of his way untram- meled. But isn't he to slow about those appointments? We only have a democratic oil inspector to show for the three months of democratic rule. It is said that Lancaster county is to have the warden of the penitentiary if Pat Ford don't want it; a Plattsmouth man is to be stew ard at the asylum, but Colonel Sher man, after setting his heart on the brass buttons and epaulets of the governor's staff, with a real title, we are told will be disappointed. This is sad for one so young to be so gre- viously disappointed, it is very dis piriting, and then you see the old manwouldn'thave turned that som ersault and plaved the sycophant, making laughing stock of himself, if he had known the governor was croine: to look coldly upon his de mands for place and power. 'T would be very cruel of the governor if he failed to recognize the merits (?) of the"aunty-monopoly "organ ofPlatt- mouth ringsters. 111 J. D. GRAVES & CO. DEALERS IN PINE LUMBER, . SHINGLES.

They were: Give us direct and ample trans portation facilities under the Amer ican flag, and controlled by Amer ican citizens; a currency sound in quality and adequate in quantity; an international bank to facilitate exchanges, and a system of recipro city carefully adjusted within the lines of protection; and not 011I3' will our foreign commerce again invade ever sen. but every Amer ican lndusirv win 1 e quieiveiieu aim our whole people feel the impulse of a new and enduring prosperity. Like the expert witness in the story, the Herald is not hired to testify on that side. Nor is it likely to quote the fol lowing statements found in the same speech: They (the founders of our govern ment) fully appreciated the value of the necessity . of a strong and healthy merchant marine, and left 011 record no doubt of their purpose to protect the interests ot the repub lic, on the water as well as 011 the land. The second act passed by the First congress -July 4. 17Mt pro vided for the protection of Amer ican shipping by the imposition of a discriminating duty 111 favor of teas broug'ht in American vessels, thereby signalizing the lirst Fourth of July under the Constitution by a declaration of commercial inde pendence as a supplement to the declaration of political independ ence made thirteen years before. The third act of congress, passed sixteen days later, imposed tonnage duties as follows: CENTS.. American vessels, per ton. . . . .(Hi American-built vessels be longing to foreigners, per ton . . 30 All other vessels, per ton ..") On September I, the same year, congress prohibited any but Amer ican vessels from carrying the American Hag. By the tariff act of 17it an additional discriminating duty of 1( per cent, was levied on all goods imported in vessels not of the I'nited States. And in all changes of the tariff prior to the war of lsii this discriminating duty of 10 per cent, "was re-enacted. So great was the development of our shiphuildingaud shipping interests under the fostering inlluence of these acts that we sold ships MODERN DEMOCRACY, The Baltimore Sun published the other day a dispatch from Little Rock, Arkansas, under the caption, 'Jefferson Davis Displaces Wash ington.' The dispatch states that a life-sized portrait of Jefferson Davis- which the clerk of the Arkansas house of representatives had been authorized to have painted, had been received and placed over the speaker's desk. "It took the place," the dispatch adds, "of the portrait of George Washington that had been hanging in the hall for twenty years. 1 lie .Arkansas legislators are reported as greeting the portrait of Jefferson Davis with great cheering. Substituting the picture of Davis for that of Washington's would have been a si.ange poeeedwig even if it had taken place when the 'on 1 hern states were in arms against the Union. That it should nave taken place a quarter 01 a century after the last army of the Confederacy had surrendered seems almost incredible. To sa3 that the Arkansas legislature displayed ex ecrable bad taste in this matter is surely not waiving the "bloody shirt." Secretary Blaine's answer to the letter of the Italian Premier ap pears in tne associated press dis patches this morning. It is the same calm dispassionate, clear and concise statement tor which lr. Blaine is justly famous. It is large ly a reiteration of Mr. Blaine's form er letter somewhat elaborated upon the question of our duties as,to pun ishing the slarers of the mafia at New Orleans. The democratic press which had predicted a back down on the part of our secretary of state. in the face of the war-like threats of Rudini. is compelled toadmit again that Blaine is master of the situa tion, and that the firm tone of his letter bears no hint of a back down rather on the contrary he is more firm and explicit than in his previ ous note, the London newspapers ;ire compelled to speak in high terms ot the amiity ot the papers from the American premier and criticise the Italians lor hemg too hasty. r LJ W tj W HENDEE & CO (SucceBr to U.
