Tub republicans put up a ticket
Saturday night that it hard to beat,
nil being young men.
IT is conceded by everyone that
the republicans have put up the
best men for counci'meu in all the
wards in the city.
TE republican convention Satur
day night put up all young men,
everything being unanimous and
in favor of a clean ticket.
II. N. DovEY, in accepting the
nomination for mayor, placed him
self on record and pledged hiniHelf
to the convention that he was
favor of public improvements
THE ticket put up by the repub
'! .; Saturday night hIiouM be
elected by a handHome majority,
usit iscomposedof all onng men,
who are in favor of public improve
inentH in the right direction.
President Diaz calls attention to
the fact thai an admirable recipro
city treaty between the Tinted
Statea and Mexico was once negoti
ated and ourcongrcHH defeated it;
und it is proper to add that the men
who did most to effect that unforlii
nate result were K'oger J. Mills and
William k Noiri.Hon.
Till! Smith Carolina senator who,
just before the war of the rebellion,
denounced northern laborers as
"mud Bills," "greasy mechanics,1
and "small listed tanners' ran
against the republican party as the
champion of the dignity of labor
not long after his denunciations,
and found that he had been tiion
keying with a biux-saw.
Mk. T. II. PoLUKK, candidate for
city treasurer, is u young man of ex
cellent character, a competent and
first class accountant, and one who
is every way qualified for the duties
of the office he aspires to. Mr. Pol
lock has upent the greater part of
hia life in the city and is known by
all to be fully capable of handling
the finances of the city.
Slavery abolished, free home
Bteads provided, industries vastly
developed and new employments
opened, the dollar of the working-
man and bondholder exactly equal
i.ed, high wages maintained, and
protection almost perfectly ad
justed are some of the salient
points in the labor record of the re
publican party that no laborer can
afford to forget and ignore.
A LABOR- commission is engaged
in the investigation of the condi
tiou of labor in Kngland. In one
manufacturing district the com
mission found hundreds of girls
and women working from twelve to
fifteen hours a day at wages rang'
ing from one dollar to two dollars
and a half per week. Free trade, or

business manone who has been
identified with the interests of
Plattsinouth for a number of years;
in fact, Mr. Dovey was bom and

Tun new laritf was not made
"about the fullest' consultation
with every important agricultural
society in America. The farmers
had been having pretty lial times.
They knew just what the matter
was. Their associations, composed
of some of the ablest men in the
I'nited States, were unanimous in
tJieir statement as well of the cause
.h the remedy. They did not com
p!ain of the price of what they had
fo buy, f..r thai, in all cases, was
I wer III. in ever before. The price
of what I hey Invito sell was what
worried them. Agricultural value
Ii.id been decreasing rapidly for
many years and as rapidly agri
cultural imports into tin- country
to compete with domestic products
in our markets had been increasing.
The farmers asked no more than
that the influx of these foreign
l; oods should be restrained by a
fiir tariff. Investigation showed
that there had been an increase of
the- importations f foreign
products from iHO.IKKHliM in ltOO to
iVsOWWKXI in 18W. "We do not
n?cenurily pay Uh much for what
wo buy," paid the farmers, "but we
tattoo little for what we sell, and
the reason of this is that tin low
t. rift admits of this enormous iin-yortalion."
, A LUMP OF TIN.
Neither Congressman Bryan of
Nebraska nor any other democratic
congressman can infuse life into
the dead body of tariff reform-so-called,
but meaning free trade.
There is an answer to speculative
argument that admits of no gain
saying, and that answer has been
made sufficiently public. It is the
lump of tin. j
After several gentlemen in con-'
gress had proven by a course of
most ingenious reasoning that
metallic tin could not be produced I
in the United States, a gentleman
from California, Dowers by name, !
walke 1 up to the speaker's desk and
It id upon it a shining block, fifty
pounds in weight, and remarked
that it was tin, and that it was
from the Temescal mines. He said
no more than this. The lumpof tin
did the rest of the talking.
So after Mr. Hryan has eloquently
demonstrated that the tariff in
creases the price to the consumer,
Mrs. John Smith, wife of Consumer
John Smith, informs her husband
that the new carpet, purchased by
her yesterday, is of American make,
and that it is of better quality and
of lower price than any other that
she has bought during her quarter
century of wedded life. And then
Consumer John remembers that the
suit of clothes purchased last week
cost him less than a suit that he
bought three years ago, and not
more than one he bought last year,
lie reads Mr. Jfryaii's eloquent and
logical speech but he has seen the
lump of tin.
In like manner, after Mr. Hryan
has demonstrated his "mastery of
the subject" most conclusively and
has proven, by an unanswerable ar
ray ot Knglish testimony, that the
United States can not expect to sell
its products to foreign countries so
long as it buys manufactuied goods
from Americans rather than from
Kuropeans, the secretary of the
treasury produces his report of an
unusually large export trade. This
is placing the lump of tin where
And so it ffoes. Some Mr. Hryan
proves that tin plate can not be
made in the United States, and the
United States factories make 800
tons of it during the first seven
mouths of increased protection. A
Mr. Hryan proves that we can not
make pearl buttons, and instantly
about twenty pearl button factories
spring up mid give employment to
li.OOOAmerican people. A Mr. Hryan
proven that there must be "higher
prices on account of the tarifT," and
forthwith every housewife in Amer
ica assures him that $10 will buy
more dry goods in WJl than $11
would buy in 11)0. And, in short,
no matter what the democratic
Itryans eloquently say, some cruel
messenger of fact marches up to
the speaker's desk and lays the
lump of tin in full sight of the audience.-
FEEDING A. DELICATE BABY.
There are three points to be con
hidered in feeding a delicate baby,
writes Klizabeth Iv'obinson Scovil in
the April Ladies' Home Journal.
The kind ol food.
The quantity given at once.
The time between the meals.
The kind of food must, of course,
depend upon the child; what agrees
with one cannot be taken by anoth
er, while it exactly suits a third. A
good receipt is one tablespooufttl of
milk, two tablesoonfuls of cream.
two tablespoonfuls of lime-water.
and three of boiled water, sweetened
with a tiny pinch of milk sugar.
Make it milk warm, and the food is
ready for use. This is sufficient for
one feeding for an ordinary sized
baby until it is two months old;
after that gradually increase the
quantity without changing the pro
portion of the Ingredients.
THE CHICAGO BREWERIES COM
The immense brewery corpora
tion capitalized at $3),()m,(IOll will
probably entirely revolutionize the
Chicago beer business. The deal is
the largest and most important in
the history of the trade, nud rivals
the famous whisky trust.
The prime mover in the deal, the
P. Sehoeiihofen Hrevving Co., is the
same linn that caused such a rum
pus up in Milwaukee among the
loeal brewers there by establishiii"-
the first branch of anv imnortanee
for the sale of outside beer in that
It appears that ever since tin-
Milwaukee brewers have been
making tin-most strenuous ( Iforts
to prevent it becoming publicly
known that Chicago beer is being
sold in their city. .Nearly every
brewer in Milwaukee Is vitally in
terested in having this kept quiet,
as there is no doubt but that it will
seriously affect the entire shitmimr
and export trade of that city, which
amounted last-year to somewhere
in the neighborhood of '.MKNUHIO barrels.-

A FviaaUr C-arvv f lite.
Another miracle worker has recently
come into prominence in this vicinity.
He it Catholic priest without a parish,
and the medical fraternity attrioute kid'
alleged curee to imagination, which, as
all doctors know, is worth tons of medi
cine in many cases. It seems an estab
lished fact, however, that a man who
for years has been tortured with respi
ration several times as rapid as the
normal, and who had consulted many
eminent physicians without relief, got
rid of his trouble between dawn and
dark of a single day after an application
of prayor and holy relics, and that all of
his ailing acquaintances have ever since
kept the priest's door ajar, some of them
Roinfj; away in the belief that they have
been permanently benefited.
The worker of these alleged cures,
who attributes his success to divine Hid,
is a stalwart man of fifty years a man
of the kind whom the weak and credu
lous would instinctively obey so far as
their nerves and muscles wonld allow
and if he has compelled a lot of hypo
chondriacs to once more como under
their own control he has done a great
deal of good whatever may bo his meth
od, or luck of it. Such men are of un
speakable service to physicians, all of
whom, in this vicinity, are haunted by a
lot of people who imagine themselves ill
and who are sure they know what is the
matter with them. New York Cor. Chi
A builder in Aviso, a village in Cham
pagne, was arrested by two gendarmes
and taken to Chalons, whero the judo
d'instrui'tion commenced tho conversa
tion in tho way usual to his calling by
saying, "You are a thief and an ussas
sin." After this polite greeting he went
on to remark that a murder, accompa
nied by theft, had been committed in
tho neighborhood, ami a small boy bad
given it as his opinion that tho buihlur
was tho murderer.
Tho poor prisoner naturally felt indig
nant, and declared ho was ready to
prove an alibi. Hut of course ho was
not believed, and every day for three
days ho was marched through Chalons
and Aviso with handcuffs upon his
wrists. At the end of that time the
judge d'instruction said to him: "We
were wrong. Your iniiocenco has bee:i
proved. You aro free."
"Ytw, disgraced and ruined," added
tho poor builder. "Who do you think
will employ me after seeing mo led
through tho streets handcuffed like a
felon?" The heart of the man was
touched. "True," ho said, "wo have
done you an injury, my good man." And
ho pressed into the hand of the builder
a ten franc piece. Paris Letter.
I hictriclty from Wind.
Owing to the comparative scarcity of
water power in many parts of England
for tho generation of power for elec
trical purposes, attention has been given
to wind power, of which the country is
well supplied. A small experimental
plant has lieen in o-wrution at a flour
mill near London, tho windmill supply
ing sufficient power to run a small dy
namo. Tho current is used to charge a
storage battery, from which a number
of aro and incandescent lamps wero
lighted nightly. Although tho current
obtained was small the experiment was

Annie Delamater, the eleven-year-old
girl who was choked to death Sunday
afternoon by swallowing a small rubber
toy balloon.was buried from the residence
of Mrs. Kane, 70 Henry street.
The child's father, a widower, who
boards in Williamsburg, while going up
stairs in the house where the coq-se lay
at 3 a. m. on the day of the funeral, fell
backward down a flight of stairs. An
ambulance took him to Gonverneur
hospital, where it was found that both
legs were paralyzed, and he is now in a
critical condition. New York Sun.
A Walking lCns-lne.
A New York genius has evolved a cu
rious kind of a traction engine that has
lwth wheels and legs. The end of the
machine to which the six legs are at-
laeueu is supposed to lie the rear of the
engine. The legs are un rated by ec
centrics and they work in pairs. The
feet lire shod wit li blocks of niblier to
enable thein totake hold of the ground.

draft animal confidently assert that it
will go astern as well as ahead and will
