ManoBchusens Republican Elect
Everything Except Gov-ernor-Reiulu
The latest returns from Ohio indi
cate that McKinley's plurality will
beli3,000, and the republican ninjor-
ty in the legislature will be thirty
lit on joint ballot, which insures
the election of a republican senator
to succeed Senator Sherman. Re
publicans have every reason to
feel proud of the result in Ohio, in
asmuch as it is the only state in
which national issues were made
paramount to all others. The cam
paign, from start to finish, has
been one of education, and after the
people have undergone a thorough
schooling, at the hands of the
greatest masters of these questions
in America, they have spoken in no
unmistakable language. The re
sult is a complete triumph for the
(.publican policy of protection, re
ciprocity and honest money.
There is little question that Post's
majority in Nebraska will reacli
S.OUO. The returns si if not complete,
but the strong gains made by Post
in supposed lidgerton strongholds
insures a complete triumph for the
ntire republican ticket. Whilethe
result is not purely a partisan
victory, inasmuch as the full dem
ocratic vote was not given to
lidgerton, there is little question
that the sub-treasury loans, the
piestion of issuing unlimited
paper currency and the policy ot
free and unlimited coinage of sil
ver has each received a black eye.
The people of Nebraska are to be
congratulated that they have so
ably done their duty and main
tained the credit of our state and
the dignity of our supreme court.
In Iowa the result is highly en
couraging to the republicans
Uoth parties are still claiming the
governorship but conservative
estimates indicate that the entire
democratic state ticket is elected.
The republicans find encourage-

question und the election of lloies
has no. significance concerning
national issues. In the election of
the legislature, however, the policy
of the party on national issues was

plete party victory.
The vote polled in New l ork was
exceptionally light, indicating
little interest in the result. Flower's
plurality will reacli 40,000. The
light was purely local, Fasset turn

hall and Flower pushing the world's

doubtless, Fasset will be inclined
to favor New York for the world's

HONORED BY THE BAIL
A Banquet Tendered Judga
Chapman at the Riley.
Many Prominent Leal Lights Testify
of Their Hiyh Regard and
Esteem for the Able
A banquet was tendered Judge
Chapman last cveninir at the Hotel I
Riley, the bars of Cass and Otoe
counties, irrespettiveof party affili
ations, participating in the festivi
ties of the occasion. The spacious
dining hall was brilliantly lighted
ami appropriately decorated: and
in preparing ihe bill of fare the
btitltr fairly eclipsed all former
attempts in every particular, thus
indicating a familiarity with the
traits and possibilities of the mem
hers of the bar. S. P. Variatta acted
as toastmaster and in a few appro
priate remarks, in which he paid a
glowing tribute to the integrity
and ability of Judge Chapman,
announced as the first toast "Our
Guests," which was responded to
by Hon. J. H. Strode. He was at a
loss to understand why he should
be chosen to respond to "Our
Guests," as he no longer belonged
to the bar of the Second district,
but inasmuch as he was now prac
ticing some in Cass county, he pre
sumed that this was his home and
Otoe members were the guests.
Hon. T. H. Stevenson responded
to the toast "The Alliance and the
liar." Mr. Stevenson in a quaint
manner remarked: "Gentlemen,
the alliance does not patronize the
bar, but its representatives does
sometimes eat with the members
of the bar". He expressed profound
regard and respect for Judge I hap
in!.n,and though himself a defeated
candidate, lie considered the judg
ship in safe hands.
To the toast "The Relation of the
Judge to the Har," Judge Chapman
responded. He eulogized the bar
of the district and expressed delight
at the many manifestations of re
gard toward him. He had pnid
little attention to the canvass, and
no action of his toward any oppos
ing candidate brought unpleasant
recollections to his mind. He felt
grateful that fairness had charac
terized the campaign throughout.
II. P. Travis responded to the
toast "The Relation of the Har to
the Court." He thought that the
utmost respect should characterize
the relation of the members ot the
bar to the court and to each other.
He spoke in high terms of the
ability of Judge Chapman and per
sonal relations between them would
continue most friendly. His re
marks teemed with wit and were
Judge Sullivan responded to the
toast "Puty to the Alliance." The
Judge said he was raised a farmer
and his sympathies were with the
fanners interests, lie favored n
farmers' organization for mutual
protection but as a political organi
zation itwas a failure. Apolitical
party should be so broad and liberal
asto deal fairly with all classes of
industry, and the party that could
not protect the fanners' iuterests
deserved to die.
Mathew Goring responded to the
toast "A Lawyer," in which he out
lined his ideal lawyer. He should
have a broad education, integrity
above reproach and be unswerving
in his fidelity to his client.
"The Har of the Second Judicial
District" was responded to by W.L.
Browne; "The lury System and Its
Relations to Justice," by Hon. R. H
Windham; "The Supreme Court,"
by Allen IUcson; "Partisanship in
the r.lection of Judges" by W. L,
Hayward; "The Honesty and Integ
rity of the liar," by J. ll.IIaldenian

Other," by C. S. Polk; "The LITorts

Lawmaker," by Hon. F. E. White
"The Law Student," by P. O. Pwyer
"The Lawyers and Finances," by
H. A. Gibson; "The Press and the
liar," by H. G. Race; all of which
were replete with witty remarks
gave expression to many lofty and
inspiring sentiments and in every
instance the high regard and
et'teein in which Judge Chapman i
held was unmistakably indicated.
