want their money without delay.
TtTE IlEKALD's theory- that the al

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

THE Plattsmouth Journal wants

iiot being mailed to all parts of the
country. Col. Polk is also a North
Carolina democrat, but lie is more
of an alliance man than a democrat.
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

who arrogantly assume to control

"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

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. '
The popular "Uuck" Kwiug, cap

an article for the Hoy's Department
of the Ladies' Home Journal for

will tell how to play the game; how
to form a nine; the hardest posi

in a manner favorable to the rights
of Italy and of those of all civilized

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

Our esteemed contemporary, the
New York Herald, has been display
ing on its editorial page precepts
from Secretary Windom's last
speech relating to banking and
currency, which it says were his
last words, but it does not give the
last words. 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

land. The second act passed by the
First congress -July 4. 17Mt pro

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:
American vessels, per ton. . . . .(Hi

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
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
