THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM.
The republican party of the (date

Min of itH devotion to tne princi
plen of the republican party and de
wares thattnose principles, an ex
preBRcd by the national republican
convention, should be the strong
point ot union between ail repub
licana in tne aiaie ox tteuraana.
We congratulate the people upon
the marvelous prosperity attending
the development and growth of the
tateof Nebraska during ita twenty
tour years ot atateiioou under re-
Cublican administration, and which
as brought us to the front rank
among the leading states of the
nion; and we can fearlessly assert
that n state which has bscn coa
trailed by democratic power, daring
ur considerable time of the same
period, can compare with us in the
economical management of public
affairs, in the rapid ratio ol increase
in copulation, wealth and general
prosperity, notwithstanding the
fact that th-re are within the
borders of the state a number of
dissatisfied nerssns who took ad-
antage of the general financial de
pression which swept over the en
tire country to pave their way into
temporary prominence by declaim-
me airainst tne welfare of ourpeo
pie and slandering the fair name ot
our state. The rains from heaven
and the rich soil, vigorously culti
, vated by the energetic hands ot our
farmers, have produced such bount
iful crops and such unrivaled pros
perity that ahull silence all calam
ity talkers and add to the strength
and enthusiasm of the republican
We congratulate President Harri
son upon n is eminently wise, loynl
and courageous administration, and
declare our absolute confidence in
his integrity, ability and patrio
tism, ana pledge him our cordial
support in the discharge of the
duties devolving upon him as the
chief magistrate of the nation.
We rejoice in the restoration of
dignity, vigor and statesmanship in
the conduct of our foreign affairs
under the guiding hand of Amer
ica's favorite son, James G. Ulaine.
We approve of the silver coinage
act of the present administration,
by which the entire product of the
silver mines of the United States is
added to the currency of the people,
but we denounce the democratic
doctrine of free and unlimited coin
age of silver as a financial policy
liable to precipitate the people of
every city ami every state in the
Union in a prolonged and disas
trous depression, and delay the re
vival of business enterprise and
prosperity so ardently desired und
uow so apparently near. The free
and unlimited coinage of silver
would tend to the hoarding of gold
and to force the use of cheap money
in the payment of wages in every
workshop, mill, factory, store and
farm, and tend to the scaiug down
of the wages of the toilers und
weakening the purchasing power of
the dollar which would be used to
purchase the products of the farmer.
We are in favor of having every
dollar as good as any other dollar.
We demand the maintenance of
the Aniei icuTi system of protection
to American industry and labor, the
policy that has been identified with
every period of our national pros,
We ndinire the genius of that
heroic statesman, William McKin
ley. Jr., whom the people of Ohio
w ill make their next governor as a
recognition of his magnificent ser
vices to the country. We also com
mend nnd endorse that policy of re
ciprocity by which the C entral and
South American nations and the
Spanish Indies nre being opened up
to our trade upon favorable terms
and by which all the surplus
products of our country may find a
market and by which all our people
shall receive in exchange therefore

that its irrowth and power, its pros

justice nnd widen the opportunities

port in the future, us in the past, we
pledge our iuosi intelligent juug
tnent and most sincere endeavor.
We denounce the Grand Island
platform of the democratic party as
framed with the deliberate purpose
to mislead and deceive; wherein
sympathy is expressed where none
is felt; wherein help is proposed
where none is rendered; when
purposes ute avowed which are not
entertained, in support oi tins in
dictment we point to the pretended
friendship for the soldier, while at
the same time the democratic party
has always proclaimed against the
granting ot liberal pensions; to tne
freesilver plank, intended to deceive
the supporters of tree and unlim
ited coinage of silver, when it is
known that many of the leaders of
the party are opposed to the doc
trine; to the failure to give the re
lief from exhorbitant freight rates
while it was afraid to either np
prove or censure the action of its
acting alieu governor for vetoing
the Newberry bill.
We denounce the democratic
party for its insinuations against
the integrity of the supreme court
of the state as an effort to make the
judicial powers subordinate to
political parties and as disgraceful
to a political organization.
We denounce the democratic
party for- its double dealing with
the civil and political rights of the
people, wherein it appears to favor
tree ana untrammeiea elections in
the state of Nebraska, but never
raises its voice against the political
outrages practiced against tne re
publican voters, white and black,

BLAINE'S TRUE POSITION.
Several democratic papers
throughout the country have been
iisscrtiug that Blaine was opposed
to the McKinley bill. They sought
to prove this by crediting him with
the assertion that the bill did not
open up a market for a single bar
rel of pork or bushel of wheat. The
Journal of this city as usual was
ready to chime in with the other
free trade organs, but Till-; IIi.kai.d
called a halt by at once reminding
our esteemed contemporary that
Mr. Blaine used tho.se words before
the reciprocity clause had been
added and after the committee had
added that clause he was a warm
supporter of the bill. Mr. Blaine
recently wrote the following letter
defining his true position:
.".U'UUSTA, Me., Oct. U, lfl91.John
llopley, Esq., E litor of tl e J jurnal,
Hucyrus, (.). My Dear Sir: You in
form me that the democratic paper
in your town, and many democratic j
papers throughout Uhio keep the
following paragraph standing in
'"But there is not a section or line
in the entire bill (McKinley tariff)
that will open a market for another
bushel of wheat or another barrel
of pork.' James G. Blaine to Sena
tor Frye, July 11, 1890.
"This sentence is garbled and
taken from its proper connection
It creates a wrong impression
What I did say is the following:
.'"I do not doubt that in many re
spects the tariff bill pending in the
senate is the just measure and that
most of its provisions are in ac
cordance with the wise policy of
protection,' but not that 'There is
not n section or line in the entire
bill that will open a market for
another bushel of wheat or another
barrel of pork.'
"Ihc letter in which this para
graph occurs was written for Sena
tor Frye on luly 11,1890, and the
McKinley bill did not become a law
until Oct. 1 nearly three months
thereafter. In my letter to Senator
Frye I objected to the bill, because
it did not contain a reciprocity
clause which would provide
market for wheat nnd pork, for
other products of the farm and for
"Before the bill was finally
passed the reciprocity clause was
inserted and a large addition was
made to the free list. It will, there
fore, be seen from what I said in my
letter, that the objection which
made to the McKinley bill was en
tirely removed before the bill be
came a law.
"Let me further say that the reel
procity ' clause has given ample
market for many barrels of flour
and many pounds of pork.
"Brazil, some months since, en
tered into a treaty by which many
American articles are admitted
free. Flour is made free and pork
is admitted at a nominal duty.
"Cuba and Porto Rico huve re
duced the duty on flour from $3.80 a
barrel to $ 1.00 (which giveB us the
market) besides putting nearly one
hundred articles of American pro
duction on the free list.
"San Domingo has made a reci
procity treaty with flour and pork
upon the free list, besides a large
number of other articles. Other
treaties for reciprocity are in
"Germany, without negotiating u
formal treaty, has removed the pro
hibition on pork, and our govern
ment, in consideration thereof, has
left her sugar on the free list. This
opens to us'an entirely new market
and between $15,OOC,01)0 and $20,000,-
000 of American pork will be con
sumed per annum, where not a
pound has been taken for ten years.
"The reciprocity ptovision is
proving very successful, and es
pecially in farm products and more
particularly in the case of the two
articles mentioned in the paragraph
liioted flour and pork.
"I am not, therefore, an opponent
of the McKinley bill as the demo
cratic papers of Ohio are constantly
alleging. On the contrary I have
continually supported it ever since
t was perfected by the insertion of
the reciprocity clause. Very

A Cure for Paralysis.
Frank Cornelius, of Purcell, Ind.
Ter., says: "I induced Mr. J'iuson,
whose wife had paralysis in the face
to buy a bottle of Chamberlain's
Pain Balm. To their great suprise
before the bottle had all been used
she was a great deal better. Her
face had been drawn to one side;
but the Pain Balm relieved all
paiu and soreness, and the mouth
assumed its natural shape." It is
also a certain cure for rheumatism
