THE republican convention hall at
Minneapolis lias been completed,

tion of the ticket that is to sweep
the country next fall.

political followers. Failure to
'obey and no questions" is punish

cither honor or patronage.
D. It. IllI.L (with an assumption of
pensive melancholy and u steel-like
glitter of the eye): "Now, if I had
only been able to get into Khode Is
land to assist the democrats, how
different it might have been."
WHEN David Hoss Hill issues his
ultimatum to the democrats in con
vention assembled at Chicago they
will immediately crawl down off
the fence and vociferously declare
that Senator Hill is the greatest
The business outlook as given by
Dun's and Hrndstreet's reviews does
not bear out Hrother Sherman's
Journal in the statement that poor
trade and not the McKinley law is
the cause of the present low prices

The reason all the democratic
presidential candidates and their

Haunting ot t lie "bloody shirt in

THE game of the anti-liryan dem
ocrats is to let the young man elo

it this fall. That will lay him on
the shelf and he will not be in the
way two years from now. The only
hope of the democrats carrying this
district is in an oil year and on a

The Nebraska farmers could not
be blamed for favoring a law to en

standard hence a fluctuating nnd

factorily explained. Heatrice Ke
The monthly reports of the secre
tary of the treasuty have the effect
ot making the bourbon calamity
howlers froth at the mouth every
thirty days. The growing volume
of the spring trade and the pros
pects for good crops is maddening
to the inossback leader. Lvery
thing, including the working of the
McKinley taritf law, is against them
THE Chicago Herald has burned
the bridges behind it since leaving
the Cleveland democracy. It says
"It is not seriously claimed in inn
quarter that Mr. Cleveland ca
carry New York. Only madim
will profess that the democratic
inirtv can elect a president next
November without New York
That is the situation in absolut
simplicity." And if the Herald had
stated the whole truth it would
have continued "and no other can
didate nominate! by the democrats
.can carry New York this fall. This
j9 a republican year."
IT is really too bad that Billiam
Silver Hryan should be so soon
done for. His frequent repetition
of that "great speech" in Connecti
cut nnd elsewhere started trie
Washington newspaper corres
pondents to poking fun at him as a
twenty-four hour hero a man with
one ppeech for any and all occa
sions. Then he came to Omaha
and heroically performed his "pain
ful duty" of putting himself for
ward to be sat down upon for the
good of the party. Then he goes
back to Washington and dips his
oar in Mr. Hill's K'ockwell-Nyes
elction case and the New York
senator-boss boxes his ears and
orders the democrats to pay no at
tention to oratorical upstarts from
the west who rant about courage
and duty, an 1 the democrats mind
Mr. Hill as usual.
K'ope at random a hundred demo
crats anywhere in Texas, free
traders or not, it makes no di (Ter
ence; ask them if they think it lair
to protect eastern manufactures
and nt the same time put western
and southern raw materials on the
free list, and they will all, or nearly
all, tell you No with emphasis.
Ask them if they are opposed to
the free coinage ol silver, and they
will answer No; that their party
has always been a silver party, and
that until silver was demonetized,
to please the bondholders who did
not watd to take silver for their
bonds, it was always on a parity
with gold. And yet in the face of
oil this they will throw up their
hats for Woger Mills, who attempted
to sacrifice the raw material of the
south and west for the benefit of the
astern manufacturers, and who
also made anti-silver speeches in
Ohio. This is not consistency, cer-
linly. Then what is if?-Texa&
Stockman and Farmer.
One of our editorial brethren says
there should he no juggling with
the great Cleveland a name in the
state convention, as he is not a pos
sibility. There is no danger of Mr.
Cleveland's name suffering to any
alarming extent. Gratitude is not
the ordinary politician's besetting
shortcoming. When Cleveland
thought he wa3 bigger than the
people of the country, he started in
to serve notice on them that they
must "cheese the racket" about sil
ver if they wanted him to run for
president. The people began to as
sert right and left that Mr. Cleve.
;nd could go to that country where
fires do not need to be freshly
started each morning, and when
the politicians saw this they
dropped him like a hot potato. We
ire just learning to "love Cleveland
for the enemies he has made."
Like many other great men great
when he has offices to give away
he ha9 talked and letter-wrote him
self to death. Like the Syrian
satraps, in commenting on the
speech of Herod, they said it was
the voice of a god, but the worms
ate him just as they would any
other mortal. Anti-free coinatre
and republican approval has made
Mr. Cleveland a chestnut. David
COURTS AND NEWSPAPERS
The supreme court of Indiana has
made an important ruling ns to the
powers of judges in relation to
newspaper writers who may . criti
cise their acts.
Fishback and Allen respectively
are editor and publisher of a news
papet that preferred a charge
against Judge Taylor, of the Terre
Haute court, that he had prevented
a grand jury from making investi-
gation concerning alleged corrup
tion in contracts and construction
of sewers in that city. The judge
construed the charge to be in de
rogation of his office, and fined Fish
bach and Allen for contempt of
court. They refused to pay and
were scentenced to imprisonment,
whereupon they appealed to the su
The appellate court found that the
articles published by Fishback nnd
Allen were not in contempt of court,
inasmuch ns they did not attribute
dishonest or unworthy motives to
the judge, hut were more decorous
criticisms of what appeared to the
editor and publisher to be neglect
of duty by the judge or the grand
jury, or both of them.
This is good law and good equity.
As Judge Olds, in expressing the
opinion of the full bench, said: 'it
ought to be understood that the
public press has rights with which
no courts have power to interfere.
It is to be noted, also, that there
are limits beyond which no self-respecting
newspaper will ever pass."
Courts are liable to error, and it is
well within the power of the press
to criticise their errors. Courts have
been, though seldom in thiscountry,
corrupt, and in the sad event of
their corruption it is the duty of the
press to denounce it. The judiciary
is one of the three coordinate!
branches of our federal and state
governments, and it is no more
above criticism than either of the
Hut, ns Judge Olds says, no self
respecting newspaper ever will tran
scend the limits of decency, either
in criticism of error or in denuncia
tion of vice. Inter Ocean.

that thrives on proclaimed misery.
Its only competitor is the decaying
carcass of the alliance.
The Journal has forgot all about
how the old war horses of the demo
cratic party s. t down on Hryan
and his free silver resolution in
IllI.L is undermining the Stuffed
Prophet in the citadel of mug
wumpism, Massachusetts. Hy the
time the Chicago convention meets
Cleveland will be in the position to
perform a similar painful duty to
that which Million Silver Hryan
lid at Omaha recently. This is a
decidedly cool spring and summer
for "courageous" democrats.
ANOTHER" free silver convention
has been called. This one is ''to In
held at Washington, I). C, M ly 1V
and 21. The silver hoys are bound
to give the democrats trouble on
that silver question, notwithstand
ing the desperate endeavors of the
bourbon leaders to put it otf "until
after the election" "God hates a
coward" and so does the silver dem
ocrat. A (iooi old democrat remarked
this morning in the presence of the
editor of this paper, that last Satur
day he received that wonderful
speech of Hryan's and that he read
it through Sunday. He said it was
the poorest excuse of a speech he ever
saw, there was nothing to it, and if
the democrats nominated him he
would be beaten, no matter who the
republicans put up.
Calhoun's democratic Lincoln
Herald says the McKinley tariff law
"is a fixture and it cannot be essen
tially reduced. Years ago, when re
form was betrayed by Randall and
McAdoo and others in and out of
congress, the tariff could have been
reduced. Hut now the expenses
equal the receipts and the tariff has
become a fixture. The most that
can be done with it is to tinker it a
little here and there." The Herald
wants to change the issue to silver.
It has gotten enough of the tariff
and the republicans in one cam
paign will give it a sufficiency of
free silver courage.

There is a bright, shining crown
awaiting he that will invent a
patent sky-clearer. The Herald
itself will print his name on its
front page in large, black display
type. Nay, it will go further. It
will start a subscription list after
the manner of the cyclone list and
it will Bend its reportorial staff and
its editorial staff and its "devil" to
the far corners of the earth to
search out wealth to make the in
ventor a power in the land. For it
is many moons since we have gazed
on a ball game and we are thirsty
and hungry after one. We long to
hear once more the merry cry of the
umpire: "Three balls," "Four balls;
take your base," and the wild roar
of the populace thereat. And
toward the close of the game we
delight to join the crowd and aid
them to tear the umpire body from
soul and strew his remains over the
fair earth. But, alas! we fear it can

will be done as base ball is a game

The minstrel show is being
pushed for all it's worth and it's a
sure go. Duncan Clark's company
robbed Keinhackel of some of his
most ancient gags and he io sad

says if a good show had done it he
wouldn't kick but, under the circum
