HOW TO REACH THE NORTH POLE.
We may seem .fully entitled to
draw the conclusion that a current
is constantly running across the
polar region somewhere north of
Franz Josef Land from the sea
north of the Siberian coast and
Hering Strait, and into the sea be
tween Spitzbergen and Greenland.
Since such a current exists, the
most natural way of reaching the
North Pole, or a point quite near it,
must be to enter the current on the
side where it runs northward, that
is, somewhere near the New Siberi
an Islands, and let it carry one
straight across those unknown re
gions which it has prevented so
many from reaching.
I shall build a wooden ship as
small and as strong as possible; it
shall be just big enough to carry
provisions for twelve men for five
years, besides the necessary coal; a
vessel of about 2UO tons will suffice.
The most important
feature of the ship will be that she
shall be built on such lines as will
give her the greatest power of re
sistence to the pressure of the lloe
ice. Her sides must not be perpen
dicular, as those of ships generally
are, but must slope fnm the bul
warks to the keel; or, to use a
sailor s expression, tier "tieau rise
must be made great, so that tin
lloe.s shall get no hold of her when
they are presseel together, but will
glide downward along her- side
and under her, thus tending to lift
ith this vessel, and a crew of ten
or twelve strong and well-picked
men, besides an equipment for live
years as good in all respects as
modern appliances can afford, I
think the enterprise has a jrood
prospect of success.
Now that the shops are increasing
their forces, Plattsmouth ought to
get a hustle on that would put it
away beyond such staid old .Mis
souri towns as Nebraska City.
THE Spanish reciprocity treaty
will soon be given to the public.
Its provisions promise to open up

The independent people's party
will hold its primaries in this

There will be music in the air when

six offices to fill.
Hon. Tilos. H. Kkkd returned
Thursday from his lour months
tour in Kurope. After he gets
rested up he will go to Ohio and
help elect Wm. McKinley governor
The two invincible knights
of protection McKinley and Reed
will be a great team in the buckeye
state this fall.
The Ohio democratic leaders and
otners ot that party, who are con
versant with the campaign in that
state, say very dolefully, that there
is no particular significance "at
tached to the Ohio election this fall
anvway. The best indication in the
world that the Huckeve democrats
have given up the fight in advance
to the gallant Mc Kinley.
BOIES ON CORN.
This is from Governor Hoies' New
York banquet speech, in which he
stated that the entire value of the
crop when marketed had averaged
for five years SIXTY-SKVKN
CENTS AN ACRK LESS THAN
TIIK ACTUAL COST OF PRO
"The actual cost of producing
this ceral, the most profitable of all
that are raised within that state,
has. during the same period, ex
ceeded the entire value ot the crop
when harvested, saying nothing
whatever of income from the cap
ital invested in the land required
to produce it."
"WHAT IS TRUK OF TIIK PRO
DUCTION OF CORN IN IOWA
IS EQUALLY TRUK OF ALL THE
GREAT STAPLES RAISED ON
Think of the effect of such state
ments at the money center of the
country by a man who is supposed
to fairly represent the state. The
slander, for it can be called nothing
less,' is locked upon as a statement
of fact by the eastern capitalist
who will see to it' that none of his
money finds lodgment in so poor
and unfortunate a state as Iowa is
said to be by its own democratic
governor. iNow this same gover
nor goes before the people whose
homes he has slandered and adver
tised abroad of failures, and asks
them to again place the sceptre of
the chief executive of the great and
wealthy state of Iowa in his hands
for twojyears more- Will they do
it? If possessed of the intelligence
of a Sandwich Islander or African
Hottentot they will bury lr. Hoie

Ex-Speaker Reed is billed to make
several speeches for Major Mc
Kinley in Ohio. Mr. Reed is one of
those men who don't get insulted
at a placard bearing the in
scription "American Made Tin" but
rather swells with manly pride at
the thought of the prosperity of his
country and the extension of her
industries. Mr. Reed is not a dem
Genekal Booth, of the Salvation
Army, has gone to South Africa to
convert the Zulus. If he makes a
success of it he will then come
back and try his hand on Nebraska
City, though a formal acquaintance
with that town compels us to say
that success with the Zulus is not a
guarantee that Nebraska City could
be civilized by the same influence.
The Kutopean bankers and finan
cial writers are surprised at the
readiness with which the United
States gave up $70,000,000 of g
for export in the past few months.
Undoubtedly the'fact that this big
drain has caused no dread or harm
here has net only added to the pres
tige of the United States, but has
produced a more cheerful feeling
in financial circles all over the
mere serfs. The people, however,
notice these things, and note also
the arrant hypocrisy of the men
who at time." pretend to favor the
interests of the toiling masses.

BLAINE AS A DEMOCRATIC DIS
SOLVENT. In an article on the old Ninth
ward of New York City, which ap
pears in the New York World, we
find the following statement, which
is significant as an indication of the
changes that have been wrought in
more than one locality by the nom
ination of Hlaine and Cleveland in
The line of dcinarcalion between
the democrats and republicans in
the Ninth ward is not as clear cut
as in many other districts of the
city, for the reason that many for
mer democrats are now voting with
the republicans particularly those
first led from their allegiance to the
democracy by James G. Maine
while a good many of the old line
Know-Nothing wiiigs, who adhered
to the republican party because it
seemed to them to be most distinc
tively American, are becoming and
continuing to be democrats. I.a.-t
year, for the first time in the recol
lection of the oldest inhabitant, the
republicans in the Mnth ran an
Irishman for congress.
All old New Yorkers who know
what tile political character of the
Ninth wanl was will appreciate thi
radical change. During the Know
Nothing days the Ninth was the
Know-Nothing banner ward. In
ISfiO it cast for the Know-Nothing
candidate for nia or L'.MKJ votes,
against 13)0 for the democratic and
8.10 for the republican candidate
The nomination of Blaine and
Cleveland in 18S4 revived the old
spirit in many of these Know
Nothings who find joineu the re
publican party. Mr. Blaine's broad
Americanism naturally repelled
them iust as it attracted thousands
who had hitherto acted with the
What has happened in the Ninth
ward of New York has been repeated
in many other parts of the country
I he nomination ot .Mr. Hlaine in
made thousands vote the re
publican ticket who had up to that
time been staunch supporters of
the democracy. If he should be
nominated again next year history
will be sure to repeat itself so far as
democratic defection is concerned
His nomination would lead to even
a greater democratic stampede than
was caused by his candidacy seven
years ago. Thousands of demo
crats who could not be induced then
to vote for him would be only too
willing next year to help in th
work of placing in the White House
the greatest of living Americans.

The good editor of the New York
Post who has been weeping for a
year over the advance in prices that
would surely be caused by the new
tariff bill, is seeking cover with re
markable agility if not with grace.
He is now trying to show that
low prices are an actual evil, and
are caused often by protection
"But what we would draw particu
lar notice to," he says, "is that this
reduction of priced is exactly what
foreign manufacturers have alwaj-s
resorted to whenever we have
adopted a protective tariff, thus
neutralizing all attempts to foster
tariff is a tax, of course.
foreign manufacturers pay it.
THE Democrats predict that they
will carry Kentucky in next week's
election. A few years ago the De
mocrats of that State didn't take
the trouble to make predictions. A
few years hence perhaps the Texas
Democracy will drop to the predict
ing stage. Ex.
DUKING the last fiscal year 5oo,4G
immigrants arrived at our ports, an
increase of 104,277 over preceeding
year. It is likely that some of these
people will make good and useful
citizens, but as for the majorty of
them, there is reason to believe
that they are in no respect
COL. Polk, the President of the
.National CjAlliance, denounces
Cleveland and declares that the
farmers can not vote for him under
any circumstances. This is one of
several strong reasons why the De
mocratic party is casting about for
somebody else to place at the head
fe,?tff itH ticket next year. Ex.
THE stand the democrats have
taken on the McKinley reciprocitv
aw is sufficient to damn that party
ind relegate it to the rear for the
next four years, the theory that
our people would take the taritt ott
of sugar providing the Brazilians
would take their export duty from
cottee, hides and some other com
modities, needs but to be mentioned
before intelligent business men to
be decided as a great boon for the
nited States; yet the democratic
party is on record as a vigorous op
ponent of this very policy. Even
the immaculate Bryan that was
going to override democratic can
cuses in order to protect his dis
trict howls the same strain against
the reciprocity clause of the Mc
Kinley bill that his hard-headed,
unpatriotic brother does in Mis
sissippi. One might suppose, with
out deranging his mental equili
brium, that Bryan would try to
represent the best interests of his
constituents when they are plainly
manifest; but such is not the case

A TRUE SAMPLE.
It was none other than the chair
man ot the Aational democratic
Committee, Senator Calvin Brice of
Ohio, that is employing and
leasing state convicts down in Ten
nessee and crowding out honest
labor at his coal mines. Twenty-
five hundred miners were up in
arms and the governor called out
the militia. But your leading and
representative democrat, Mr. Brice,
did not withdraw his convicts. No,
sir; the honest toiler that had
worked for the democratic chairman
before the convicts were obtained
might starve now for till the
humane Brice cared. This incident,
coming from their leader of leaders,
shows very clearly the attitude of
that party on the labor question
Honeyed phrases are one thing and
cold, calculating robbery of the
sons of toil is quite another.
Had the republican chairman, or
even a less prominent member of
that party, been guilty of Mr.
Brice's crimes thw democratic
press would have grown red in the
face with indignation at the in
justice done to honest labor; but
now, it's all different, you know,
and not a word comes up from the
democratic cohorts until they are
goaded to it by the jibes of repub
lican criticism. The meek and low
ly Schurmann, of the Journal, is a
great friend ot labor (in his mind)
but he has not yet seen fit to con
demn the heartless onator. from
Ohio, whose chief delight seems to
rest in grinding down labor and in
reducing his men to the status of
