his country and kin; with zeal. The
following dispatch shown his condition:
Prince liinvirkV nixth eight birthday
was celebrated in Germany Sunday. A
personal vi-it wan paid by the, Emperor
William to the prince chvinjellor, who
also received C l'lr ltll:lt:ry I11CS4

iii:adi'allt me democratic lieia is
narrowed down ti Uuclt: S.nuiuv Til

exhalation, has listened to its settnm

the broom c.une down too soon, and
the great and pure party of democracy
uewd expoct nothing from little Iihody
witli her shot gun candidate. 1 he
only result of the Sprague combination
was to bring out the full vote of that
little state increasing it Jo over the
vote of 1 i3t year: of this increase the
republicans gained some 3,000 so that
the combined strength of the demo
crats and independents taking the to
tal vott.- polled shows a very insignifl
"cant portion of thp vote belonged to
t'i lrftfejud independent party.

we cau see in the nomination to dis

In one sense this is a case of r.:
markable signifii a:ic. It does not
come up before th ; great court ot

TtlK municipal election in Omaha
doesn't appear to yet be over; alt hough
all parties concerned unite in agreeing
that the gallant Col. received a major
ity of votes cast. The question pre
sented is a difficult one to solve in a
popular government, when the will of
th sovereign is expressed by a secrtt
ballot "who struck Billy Patterson"
has never yet been authoritatively dt-
cided; and just who voted for Mayor
Chae. in a great city like Omaha.
where political morals(?) are pure no
ditrencn whether the disciple has
sat at the feet of Dr. Miller or Edward
Rosewater, we are afraid will never
be certainly known.
Pottenger says he once ran for an
office in Cast county, in primitive days
when everybody was honest, and as tho
return came in a report sained gener
al credence that he (Pottenger) bad re
ceived one vote in Salt Creek precinct;
whereupon the Judge says, everybody
from Salt Cieek claimed to have cast
that vote, and loudest and most vehe
ment, among the prominent citizens
up there was Hon. A. H. Fuller (now
of Ashland) who not only assured the
Judge that he voted for him. but that
he had put in several hard days' work
for him, to secure his election. When
lo and behold, the returns from .Salt
Creek precinct, when opened, showed
tvtry vote cast for his opponent 1
The moral we draw from all this is,
that the Omaha papers are wasting a
good deal of lim3 and printer's ink
over a subject of very little impor
tance; just "who voted for Chase"
will remain "one of the things no fel
low can ever find out."
TlIK policy of this great government
in its childish treatment of the Iudiuii
question, in beautifully exemplified by
the following characteristic epistle from
Mr. "IJlue Heron" a big Sioux chief. The
request is on a p.ir with the average im
portant business transacted between
these heads of the Indian nation aud oar
Tho following letter, from a Sioux In.
dian w.is read at the Indian offije today:

Mr. Heron evidently has the ear of the
great pale face chief at Washington; and

of any 4 big Injun'' chopping wood for

Heron evidently represents, ought to be
granted without parsimony upou tiie part
of this government as to the price of the

The Heualu would suggest that the

gentleman should use it to regulate his
wife and family or should desire to go
upon the warpath in his old age after

COSDICTKK BY MS 9. .1. X. WlsK -
To .vhoni a'l coaunuaications lor this depa:t
ment should lie addressed.
A corrf suoiident asked me recently,
"Why there was such apathy on the
subject of temperance iu Piatts
mou;hV" This question lias occurred
to me mauv times when I h.-iv stn
how comparatively few are interested
in a subject which should occupy the
minds of every thoughtful person, who
can tee what evii influence ten saloons
in one small place can exert. 1 have
visited within two or three dis a
hou-e with two families thirteen
children altogether clothed in ragf
dirty, helpless, hopeless and hungry.
I inquired if it was sickness that h id
brought such destitution, and wa
answered luiedy. "N'o whisky!" Its
too bad. The fathers of these children
are kind, well-meaning men, but so
weak! 'i hey cannot pass all these I
saloons with tha few dimes they have
earned, and so these little childien j
mu4t suffer and g-j hungry, grow up !
aud be turned loose to fill our peuiten- j
taries. lint I do not know that our
people ar more apathetic ou tha sub- '
ject of temper mce than any usher pul- j
lie interest. Nothing but an election '
on soinj startling eveut can create j
more than a ripple of interestin their
I visited in my brief absence of last
week a small town of a thousand in-
habitants. The streets are nicelv
paved, beautiful park, fountain and
water works, elegr.ut homes and
churches, and best of all. a fine reading
room aud circulating library, well sus
tained and patron iztd by liberal, pub
lic spirited citizens. There are no
saloons in that place no liquor sold
within its limits; no poor people; no
shabby tumbledown houses. The
workingmen get good wages and spend
them for the beneflt of their farnili-s.
It is certainly a model city, and it is
peculiarly aggravating to me that we
can see the state of thingn in our city,
and knowing the cause, quietly en
What if a city without saloons is not
quite so lively. Far bettei the streets
should be overgrown with grass than
worn off with the reelings of an army
of drunkards. We do not think there
is anything particularly interesting in
the sight of men staggering along our
streets or particularly elevating to the
minds of our children to listen to their
insane babbling. Hut then people like
to see something going on; and if the
victim is not one of their own friends,
why Bhould they concern themselves
as to where he gets his liquor. An in
tense and all-pervading desire to look
out for number one seems to be the pre
vailing characteristic of most of the
I received a letter from Mrs. Cooley
a few days since, in which she says:
"In Beatrice they have a reading room
.Hid loan library which pays its way,
room rent, librarian and all, and are
doinc: fine work. Ai, Kearney they
also have a reading room well kept,
and well patronized, and are doing
good work in helping save the boys."
She adds that "Plattsmouth, the Koine
of Nebraska, will surely tut be so far
behind the other cities of this great
corn state, while other states are send
ing to her their young men. Let hr
not fail to have for them some pure
place of refuge whan the cares of the
day are dropped. Surely the business
men of Plattsmouth cannot make a
better investment than in a reading
ro m. Can y -ui not make them see it ?
Not from a selfish standpoint alone,
but for the sake of '(lOd, l.omo and
native land.'" She ends her letter
with the one injunction "Wo k."
There is one thing that is gratifying
to me whib; wo can see that very little
is being done Acre public septiment
throughout the country is being en
listed on the side of temperance.
Hardly a leading paper now that does
not have its "Temperance Column,'
and able pens are bt ing wielded, and
great intellects are brought to bu-ir on
this reformation subject. It is weli
that it is so. God's mills grind slowly,
but none the les3 sure, and despairing
men and women who have well-nigh
given up hope may t ike fresh courage,
and in patience wait His appointed
time, always remembering that "lie
lielps them who helo themselves." and
t they would wia they must work
with every means within their power,
leaving the result to Ilins "who doeth
all things well."
