THE COUNTY TICKET.
The republicans of Cass, county
enter the CHtnpnirn thin ear with a
jrreiiter decree of unity and enthu
siasm and it more determined
spirit than they have shown for
vears. Tlicy Imve nominated a
ticket that inspires confidence ami
renders till' content one of men an
well an party principle. Knteiititf
under these favorable circumstan
ce it im only reasonable toconclude
that the entire ticket will he tri
It in not often that a party tfocti
into a fitrht with a Htronyer ticket
than which the convention Hi'lected
last Saturday a ticket to which its
nupporterH may refer with pride
' and satisfaction. For county clerk
a better selection could not have
been made than the nominee, Frank
Dickson. With hid experience as dep
utyclerk, bin fine natural busincnH
pialilicatioiiH hiH integrity and ex
habits niiiki-H him. indeed, emi
nently fitted for the position.
In the nominee for county treasu
rer, I,. C. Kickholi, we have a man to
whom the financial affairs of the
county may be entrusted with per
fect safety. Mr. Kickhoff has for
many years been one of our fore
most farmers, a man whose integri
ty is above tpicstion and his popu
larity with all classes will make
him an exceedingly strong candi
date. Geo. Kdson, of Rock Mulls, is also
a practical farmer, a staunch repub
lican and a thoroughly honest,
competent and strong candidate.
Calvin Ktissel, of Weeping Water,
nominee for county judge, is too
well and favorably know to call for
special comment at this' time. lie
lias already filled the office, to
which his party desires to elect
him, tohe entire satisfaction of his
constituents. His fitness for the
position isabove question and his
popularity with all parties and
Hections will make him a strong
A. Salisbury, nominee for clerk of
the district court, one of our most
prominent dentists, has won an en
viable reputation, not only proles
nioually but personally, and with
his line business qualities, genial
ity and sterling integrity he will
make a successful run and perforin
the exacting duties of the office to
which heaspires faithfully and well
J. K. Leyda. of Weeping Water,
nominee for superintendent of
schools, though a young man, has
been a live, progressive teacher for
several years. This is truly a cast
in which the office sought the man,
as Mr. Leytla badno intimation that
Ilia friends would present his name
until a few moments before the
vote was taken. His friends had
considered well his availability and
concluded tli.it a stronger man
could not be found.
The nomination of J. I. I'liruh. of
riattsmuoth, for corner, to succeed
himself will give general satisfac
tion. During the year in which tie
has tilled the position, he has
proved himself a thoroughly com
petent ready officer ami justly en
titled to the position another term.
Mr. I'liruh will be a strong candi
date. A. C. ."Mayes, our present county
surveyor, will be rc-clectrd t On
position that lie has so ably Idled
in the past. A stronger candidate
ould not have been secured.
A. R Todd named by the
st commissioner district, for re
nomination to the office of county
commissioner, is thoroughly known
throughout the county as an effi
cient, upright and ableollieer. The
election of Mr. Todd might as well
have been made unanimous at
These are the names placed be
fore the voters of Cass county, by
the republicans, ami every name on
the ticket is well known to our read:
ers, hence we are not entering this ,
campaign blindly. ' j
Hut there is a work for every
member of the party to do, in order
to make its election, absolutely
certain. Let us remember the
admonition of our newly elected
chairman id the central committee
when he said "go home with a bur- I
den ami a responsibility and work
until the ticket is elected."

JUUUfc. M B REESE.
The resolution instructing dele
gates for lion. M. H. K'cese for asso
ciate justice, introduced by lion. If.
H. Windham at the county conven
tion last Saturday, went through
with a hurrah, thus demonstrating
conclusively that the republican
party of Cass county will be lound
in line for Judge Ifeese. While
there was opposition to the resolu
tion, by several prominent mem
bers of the convention, there was
unmistakable evidence that it was
not because of hostility to Judge
Ifeese, but because they believed
that delegates should be permitted
to exercise their own judgment in
the selection. JCvery man that
ppoke in opposition of the resolu
tion paid a flowing tribute to the
ability, integrity and availability
of Judge Ifeese.
TlIK llKkAt.n firmly believes that
Judge Ifeese is one of the strong
nun in the party and inasmuch as
he was not treated fairly at our
hand two years since it iscertaiuly
true that he is a very formidable
candidate. The alliance should not
object to him as he has every tie
ment ofMrength that their candi
date, Kdgerton, possesses, with the
additional qualification that Un
people know the man and realize
his good qualities as evidenced by
his course on the bench in the past.
The delegates to the republican
county convention demonstrated
plainly that they were capable of
performing the duty entrusted to
them faithfully and well. While
some delegates were solidly in
favor of certain candidates, and
even contested the ground care
fully, yet all showed a disposition
to abide by the decision of the
majority and work in unison for
the succ jss of the republican nomi
nees. It was the opinion of the
older members of the party that it
was one of the most successful con
ventions ever held. A more united
feeling existing between the differ
ent sections, a greater degree of en
thusiasm prevailing and a more de
termined spirit predoniinatingthan
usual, and a ticket nominated that,
if considered upon its merits, will
receive the full party vote and can
not fail to draw largely from tin
HkkokK the democratic state con
vention convened at Grand Island,
the democratic press, particularly
our home organ, was loud in its
denunciations of Uoyd's veto of the
Newberry freight bill, but since the
bosHes have been heard from and
it has become a settled fact that the
party will uphold Boyd's action,
these papers have maintained a
silence in the matter that is really
surprising. Does it mean that
these papers propose to surrender
all independence in the matter,
cease to advocate a course that
they really believe would be to the
interest of the people and even ad
ovcate directly the opposite view,
regardless of their honest convic
tions, simply to satisfy party
bosses? These party newspapers
were directed doubtless, by declara
t ions of party platforms in tin-past
but surely in the face of the usual
neglect to fulfil party pledges, these
papers, the editors of which are
well acquainted with democratic
methods, should be careful to ad
vance no sentiment concerning a
question of general concern, until
the crowd lias been heard from.
TlIK Chicago Tribune, one of the
great republican dailies, soon after
the McKinley bill became a law,
but before its merits had become
Known ny actual test, was loud in
its denunciations of the bill, ami
asserted that it was not republican.
It is evident however, in view of tin
following comment upon the plat
form as adopted by the recent de
mocratic convention of Nebraska
that a fair test of the la w is demon
strating its usefulness and proving
the theories and campaign misre
presentations as wholly unfair.
The Tribune says:
In the last resolution the Nebras
ka democrats denounce the McKin
ley bill as "a bold and shameless
attempt to repay tint of the
pockets of the people to the protec
tive industries the amount contri
buted by them for the purpose of
wholesale corruption," etc. They
ought to be a little more specific on
the subject, and give at least some
idea of tin-"amount" so contributed.
Will they condemn the taking of the
duty off sugar as a contribution to
any corruption fumlV Date thepsay

people of Nebraska who have re
cently undertaken beet culture on
a large scale admit that the sugar
bounty is to them a corruption
fund': Probably not.
Major McKlXl.KY is to speak in
Oltumua, la., next Wednesday and
indications are that it will be the
largest and most enthusiastic, polit
ical gathering ever held in ,the
state. Governor Ibiii-s pretends
that he does not see why the tariff
quesinu should concern the people
of Iowa this year. Doubtless the
major will tell the Governor if he
gets an opportunity. We venture
to say that, among other things he
would remind him that the legisla
ture to be clu isen this fall will be
calletl upon to t-lect a 1'. S. senator
to ruccced Mr. Wilson; and then,
too, the republicans have opened
the campaign of VJ and the major
has a little bill about the workings
of which he wishes to inform his
TlIK republican state convention

It is well known to those ac
quainted with the resources of our
state that great possibilities lie out
before us, and it is only a question
of time when the value of all kinds
of property will be greatly en
Hut it is not wise to sit with arms
folded waiting for the advantages
of our state to become known and
entice settlers here incidentally;
but on thecontrary every legitimate
more that will have a tendency to
bring our advantages before the
people of other states should re
ceive encouragement and substan
tial aid from every one who is able
to contribute. An excellent plan
has recently been devised and all
that is needed to make it a thor
ough success and of inestimable
value to our property holders is the
hearty co-operation of all.
It has been arranged by the State
Business Men's Association that
several trains shall be loaded with
products of Nebraska, of every de
scription and in care of one repre
sentative man from each county
participating in the enterprise, they
shall be sent through nearly all the
eastern states, thus calling atten
tion id the home seekers of these
states to our advantages and the
capabilities of our citizens. The
train designed for the accomoda
tion of this section will leave here
October lath, anil every live, pub
lic spirited settler in the county
should assist in making an exhibit
in keeping with our capabilities.
Our local Business Men's Associa
tion is taking charge of affairs and all
may rest assured that no etforts
will be spared to make a creditable
showing for Cass county. Our
farmers friends are particularly,
urged to contribute of their best
products, of all kinds, as it is large
ly upon her agricultural advan
tages that Nebraska puts forth her
claims for superiority. All such
may be left with II. N. Dovey, sec
retary of the Association, from
whom they will receive proper at
tention. Assurance of support from a
sufficient number of towns along
the B. A M. has been given, to make
it certain that the train will leave
here Oct. lath. So it appears that
Cass county will surely attain dis
tinction of some nature; if it does
not receive words of commendation
that its citi.ens have taken hold of
the mutter and made, a creditable
exhibit, it will surely come into
prominence because of neglect in
the matter, and in this event the
natural inference would be that we
had nothing to exhibit' So since
this more is really forth coming it
behooves eery one to second the
efforts of our business men ami
place oi.r county in the front ranks,
where it rightfully belongs.
TlIK tin plate liars have denied so
strenuously that any tin was ever
made in American since the pas
sage of the McKinley act that Major
McKinley determined to make sure
of it. So he went over to I'iqua the
other tlay, visited a place where he
was told they were making tin,
found it unguarded, was admitted
and allowed to make a dozen plates
or so of tin himself, while watching
the process. The major is nowable
to be a witness that the tinplate liar
is a liar for sure.- Lincoln loiirual

Colli Hunter of '49 Vli.lt a Meilrun City

It was .Sunday morning when we drop
ped anchor near St. Junn de Ulloa, with
its quaint ancient tower, and the city ol
Vera Cruz just before us.
The uniformed customs officials speed
ily hoarded us from a small boat, and
while the clunking of some scores ol
rnuiiea) Spauinh hells from the cathedral
towers filled the air, the officers were en
tertained by an encounter between two
of our pugnacious gold hunters, who
struck vigorously from the shoulder. Wt
received a speedy ienuibiiioti to land, as
the officials did not uppeur to enjoy our
ontnpaniotisliip. Sunday .was passed in
looking at the sights in the old Spanish
city, battered and bninharded as it had
been two years before by the artillery ol
Walls and buildings constructed ol
coral rocks were shattered as he had left
them, fragments of bombs and solid shot
lay about the streets where his cannon
had fired thein, and along the beach were
numerous dilapidated wrecks of suit
boats where he had ahandoned them.
Numerous army wagons, caissons and
artillery carriages were scattered ulnmt,
and thousands of Yankee made pack sad
dies were offered us for our journey.
These and much other paraphernalia, the
production of army contractors, had only
served the purpose intended that of en
riching the contractors.
The only pack saddle found useful was
the Mexican one, consisting of two great
pillows of leather connected and hung
astride the mule, and weighing without
the "cargo" some eighty pounds, on the
top of which or suspended from it would
be a load of some uu pounds.
As our war with Mexico had just
closed, and the ignorant masses yet held
us in tho same enmity with which they
had regarded their conquerors, matters
did not look favorable for a peaceful
passage over the whole extent of Mexico,
especially as we- expected to follow the
route taken by Scott's army and to pass
over battlefields where, as wo learned,
bleached skeletons lay still unhuried.
The government, in fact the whole coun
try, was yet in a state of demoralization,
and guerrillas and robbers infested al
most every mile of the way.
Besides this, merchants of intelligence
in Vera Cruz warned us that we were
almost sure to be robbed and murdered,
that if we should escape this fate we
could not find provisions on onr journey
for men or 'teafits, and that we would
inert surely break down our animals and
be glad to resort to horse or mule meat
to sustain life. Impressed by these tales
(which found fulfillment to some extent
even as to mule meat, with rattlesnakes
added), about fifty of the most pro
iiouuced and boastful among our com
pany took a return passage on the vessel
for New York. Colonel A, C. Ferris in
Strange Fact About Arciilrntn.
The collection of large groujis of facts
about accidents which has beeu made
necessary by the development of acci
dent insurance has made a contribution
to one department of social science that
is by no means uninteresting. For in
stance, it is a curious fact that a man is
much more likely to lose his left hand
than his right hand, or his left eye than
his right eye; statistics show, too, that
when a man insures himself against ac
cidents he thereby greatly diminishes
the risk of accident -and this is probably
explained in this way: When a man's at
tention is called to a danger he fixes his
mind on it, and thereby couscionly or
unconsciously makes unusual effort to
avert it. It therefore happens that a
man is more likely to ho a victim of an
accident of a kind that he never thought
of than of the kind against which he in

The water pump of today is but an
improvement on a Grecian invention
which first came into use during the
re'gn of Ptolemies Philadelphia and
Encrgctcs, 28a to il'.'l IS. C. The name,
which is very similar in all languages, is
derived from the Greek word pempo, to
bend or throw. The must ancient de
scription we have of a water pump is
by Hero, of Alexandre. There is no au
thentic account of the general use of tha
pump in Germany previous to the begin
ning of the Sixteenth century. At about
that time the endless chain and bucket
works for raising water from mines lx
gan to be replaced by pumps.
In the Seventeenth century rotating
pumps, like the Pappenham engine, with
two pistons, and the Prince Hupert.with
one, were first used. Pumps with plunger
pistons were invented by Morland, an
Knglisliman, in HiTl; the double acting
pump, by De la Hire, tho French acade

A traveler in Norway says that tho
horses in that country have a very sen
sible way of taking their food, which
might be beneficially followed here.
They have a bucket of water put down
beside their allowance of hay. It is in
teresting to see with what relish they
take a sip of the one and a mouthful of
the other alternately, sometimes only
moistening their mouths as a rational
being would while eating his dinner of
such dry food. A broken winded horse
is scarcely ever seen in Norway, and the
question is if the mode of feeding has not
something to do with the preservation of
the animal's respiratory organs. Lon
