Mr. Hurton of the News, cither did not write the foregoing: or elne he listened to the representations of his "attache" and blindly swallowed very weuk Btory. The comment of TUB IlEKAU) on the case of O'Donohoeva. Milton I) Polk and his father, was in our opinion fully warranted by the facts in the case as they were retailed by the elder Polk. The News is supposed to liave a fine scent for items, (is a usual thing, but its editor was not in court when the case was called, indeed the News, was conspicuous for its absence, both in the person of its editor and its trusted "at tache," who was the first and princi pal defendant in the case which at tracted so much attention from the public. The IIekald wants its neighbor to understand that it ifl responsible for that item of news. It was published as a legitimate item of news without conspiracy or consultation with politicians or outsiders and without thought of doing our neighbor harm or break ingdown the News, as that paper terms it. We are not in that bust ness, although we have heard that the mission of the News, since its "attache" took charge ot its column was to "swamp The IIekad" and, however that may be, we want Mr. Hurton to understand that we do not run a newspaper for that pur. pose we are publishing a paper because that is our business and trade; it is our profession; we have been brought up to it and do not know how to do anything else; we are not publishing a newspaper for fame or health, like our neigh bor; neither are we bothering our selves over politicians and their in trigues; nor have we hired a poli tician to edit our paper. Now as to the item which seems to annoy our neighbor, does the News doubt Mr. John F. Polk's evidence given to the court and public under the solem nity of an oath? Or does it prefer the word of its "attache," which has proved so disastrous to the father? If it does, of . course thai settles it with that paper, but we want to say, right here, that we stand ready to satisfy anybody else of sound mind that the old father's word is bettei than the son's, and we are prepared to prove it It won't do to charge it to politicians, nor sny the old gentleman is mistaken on the wit ness stand. This was a civil action right here in court, in the city of I'lattsmouth, and in the presence of our citizens, and if a newspaper hasn't the right to comment on the fact of that trial THE IlKKALD wants to know it. Listening to that testimony we, like the balance of the spectators, felt justly indig nant that such wrongs should go unpunished in this community, and we commented on the case in that spirit and in no other. Per haps the News can explain why its trusted iattache" was not in court to deny the testimony of his father, and to clear his skirts from the charges made against him? Here was a very excellent opportunity to make a denial, and a much more appropriate place than the columns of the News, when we consider that Milton P. Polk was the first defend ant in the case and within a few yards of the court room when the case was in progress of trial. We have more evidence than was given on that trial, Mr. Dtirton, and we hereby notify you that our com ments were tame when compared with the facts in the case. TlIK coming republican national convention will be the lirst since 1S72 without a contest for the presi dential nomination. In that year Ornnt was renominated unanimous ly. There was an exciting contest' in every convention afterward tip to and including that of IfcSS. In ISTr) foven ballots were required for a choice, in 18S0 thirty-six ballots, in ISXt four ballot and in I eight ballots. TWO VIEWS. Heie are twouinuninjrviewtMf the Rhode Island electiou. The New York Sun says: To the mugwump t.ini i s. Mi Cleveland's imaginary popularity about the time of his accidental election in 1M, grew like Jack's bean stalk steadily throughout his four years of mugwump adminis tration. Then in J8-H be was de feated with a reversed or dimin ished democratic majority in every democratic state. The same frantic argument for the stulled prophet's fictitious status has been put to the test of the fact again in the city of Providence, where this ponderous and unac countable demagogue went to plead his own case tor the democratic nomination, under the pretense that it was the "people s cause. 1 he re stilt is that the democratic niaioritv of '2,()l)0 in I'rovidei.ce sank almost to iJtK). This, too, was after a be wideringly vociferous reception a few days before to the visiting speaker. The popularity alleged of the clai mant is as baseless a his democra cy. Muirwump politics and moral hypocrisy are offensive to every one trained in the school ol American republicanism. Monsieur de Uufla lo is a back number.

CAPTAIN Yocum of Hastings was eentenced Friday to the peniten tiary for one year, the lightest sen tence that the court could impose' and last Saturday, the next day after the sentence had been pro nounced, AdjutantGeneral Vifquain canied to Hastings a pardon for Mr. Yocum from Governor Hoyd. There will be but one verdict on this action of the governor and that will be a verdict of approval. Nothing but the letter of the law convicted Captain Yocum. The jury, the judge, the spectators at the trial and the people over the state all felt that equity demanded that Captain Yocum, who defended his home and family from the lies of a traducer, ought to be justified in his act and told to go hence a free man. Hut the law in its strict letter has been complied with and the governor has exercised his right under the law and given justice to a man who stands, though convicted under the law, justified in all that he has done to protect his home and his fireside. DIVERSIFIED INDUSTRIES One of the objects and results of a protective tariff is to diversify the industries ot a country, bom agn. cultural and manuiacturinf. We are all more or less dependent on each other tor what we consume, and protection enables us to pro duce nearly nil our wants at home instead of buying them abroad. If our farmers were to grow noth ing but wheat and our manufac turers were to make nothing but steel rails, they would have no home market of any value for either; but by protecting every thing that can be grown or manu factured, we make the best use ot all the natural resources of our coun try, we lessen the cost of transpor tation, we bring prices down to a reasonable level, and at the same time good wages and crood profits are insured to all. tor instance, by putting an ade quate duty on tin plate we not only establish that industry, but aid a score of allied industries way back to the mining of the ore and coal. I'rotection brinirs the farm and the factory together, each helping the other. Kvery new industry cre ated, every new product success fully grown, gives employment to otherwise idle hands and more pur chasing power to consumers of UOtll. The McKilllev law hnn nlre.irlr started scores of new industriesand each has helped those already es- lumiMiicu. To repeal the present law or anv part of it would shut un the mills. decrease wages and sadly cripple if iuu ruin our spiennid Home market. Atnericun Jvcononnst. COLD AND bILVER.

HOME, SWEET HOME. Not long ago a distinguibhed Knglishman and jurist visited our country. On the eve of his return. in a public address, he alluded to the fact that wherever' I e went he was asked whether he was not amazed at the size of our country, ThiB student of lawand government very kindly, but very decidedly, re buked this too prevalent pride of bulk, and called our attention to the finer and higher things that he had observed in our American civiliza tion. So to-day, as I look into these in telligent faces, my thoughts are turned away from those things that are scheduled, that have their places in our census returns, to those things which belongs to the higher man his spiritual and moral na ture. I congratulate you, not so much upon the rich farm lands of your country as upon your virtuous and happy homes. The home is the best, as it is the first, school of citi zenship. It is the great conserva tive and assimilating force. I should despair for my country if American citizens were to be trained nly in our echools, valuabld as their in struction is. It is in the home that we first learn obedience and respect for law. Parental authority is the type of beneficent government. It is in the home that we learn to love, in the mother that bore us. that which is virtuous, consecrated, and pure. I take more pride in the fact that the republican party has al ways been the friend and protector of the American home than aught else. I3y the beneficent homestead law it created more than half a mil lion of homes; by the Emancipation rrochmation it converted a million cattle-pens into homes. And it is still true to those principles that will preserve contentment in our homes. I gTeet you as men who have been nurtured in such homes. and call your thoughts to the fact that the republican party has al ways been, and can be trusted to be, friendly to all that will promote virtue, intelligence and morality in the homes of our people. Benj. Harrison. The United States has paid Italv $115,000 for the killing of the Mafia men at New Orleans and friendly relations are once more established with that country. We won't say out tney are worth that dead, but alive the whole lot isn't worth twenty-five cents. One of the signs by which the re publicans are sure to conquer is the uoncst dollar. The republican ticket will read Harrison and Morton.

I'll I l-IHI JHE WAR IN WYOMING.. Over a Thousand Rustlers and Friends Encamped. iiKitni it iv M'n un ri;i ni:i:. is MarvelousThe Alter- natus L:ft Out Other items. From TuasdayS Daily. 1 The war in Wyoming between the sheriff and Governor Harbour is still pending. The following dis patch, dated Cheyenne, Wyoming, is taken from a ninrning paper: That now historic wire of the Wyoming Inland Telegraph com pany, that used to pulsate widi news from the seat of the rustler conflict, has been thot down since Saturday. News from Johnson county is brought to Douglas by the mail carrier and sent here bv wire. The dead wire has been re duced by the thieves, who hope now, emboldened by their victory at the "T A" ranch, to muster a suf ficient force to take the prisoner of war irom live companies of the United States army at Fort McKin- ney. More than u thousand rust lers and their friends, including sneritr Angus and deputies, are en camped about the post, and only tear 01 neavy loss in a collision re strains them from making a rush on tort iMcrunney. lliey are will ing to pay almost any price for the half dozen unarmed men ot Wol cott's command. At several ranch es visited in riding from the country, men were heard advocat in the ckinning and burning alive of the men on the list. The depth of their hatred and vindictiveness is marvelous. It is not because Champion and Kay were killed es pecially, but it is based on the broad and peculiar premise that mere must he no lntertereuce with rustling. Governor Barbour says to-night mat ne nas requested General Brooke to deliver the prisoners in this city. Colonel Van Horn will start when he feels that the overland trio to Dourrlas can be madp with safety. It is feared now the rustlers will bum ranches and murder men who have been inactive. There is much feeling against the foremen, who are believed to have known of the movement and keDt still. The trial of Dr. Charles Bingham Penrose, the Philadelphia physi cian, which was to have been held to-day, was postponed until Thurs day, owing to the inability of the Johnson county authorities to be present. In an interview the doctor says he left the invading party at Tisdale's ranch on the second day out on account of sickness. He strenuously denies havinir been with his party at the killintr of inampion anu Kay. Dud Champion, brother of one of . -. . n tne dead men. is at Buffalo. He Mt Johnson county last fall because he ten this coming. Dud now says he only wants a look at each mem ber of Wolcotts party and he will remember them all and mav have a chance to get even. The fellow is a ngnter, as are two other brothers of the family. One is a fugitive from justice. Iherearenow in Chevenne two ranch farmers bf Johnson county, two miners, Mayor Barritt of Buffa lo, H, R. Mann, receiver of the land office, and Thomas Botiton. editor of the FIcho, all afraid for their lives to venture to their homes and prop erty. All have been warned. Sheriff Augus still refuses to deliver the expedition teamsters to Colonel Van Horn. The Rockv Mountain News nf Denver, has just received a bulletin irom casper, Wyo.. savintr that two men, badly wounded, arrived thprp this afternoon and relate an exciting story of the burning of Champion and Kay by cattlemen. The bulletin is meagre and everv effort is beino- made to obtain the particulars. The Alternate Left Out. Tohn II.
