In our editorial mention yesterday of

the Knevals lands in Thayer county, l
the U. S. courts, credit uhotild have been
given the Hebron Journal for the body
of the article. That these settlers hav
been most unrighteously dealt with, the
Herald has not the slightest doubt and

marvilous, already it is a question with

Mayor Hahkison of Chicago will
have to be put down as the star hu
morist of the day. The manner in
which he "got away" with the Chicago
Press in the matter of reporting his
speecn at tne Iroquois banquet ;was.
simply immense, and also the snanuer
in which he demoralized the free trade

It is to be hoped that Omaha will
build that long talked of railroad to the
northwest. The Sioux City A Pacific is
having almost undisputed possession of
that grand territory, and is building up
an Iowa town (Siour City) at the ex
pense of Nebraska. We want the com
mercial terminus of all our railroads in
Nebraska, or words to that effect.
The Herald wants these railroads
built into and through Nebraska sad
over it if needs oe, with the commercial
terminus wherever it will give the pro
ducer of Nebraska healthy competition.
The Herald has mentioned the neces
sity of Omaha grappling in a muscular
manner with the problem of wrestling

state and more particularly his the

CARTER HARRISON AND TARIFF.
" The best laid plans of men and
mice," fee, and so it turned out
at the Iroquois club banquet on last
Friday evening in Chicago.
Invitations had been given out all
over the country to democrats of na
tional fame, and somehow it had gen
erally come to be understood that the
free trade element of the party was to
have a " blow out " at this meeting, at
the expense of Mr. Ilandall, and the
very few of his adherents, who were
so fortunate as to receive invitations,
but somehow, unfortunately for the
managers of the free trade Infant they
put Mayor Harison on for a toast;
true, It was the last toast of the even
ing, and he was not expected to say
much or spend much time in the M we
sma' hours" in saying it; but they
reckoned without their host ; Carter
hat but recently been elected by ten
thousand majority in Chicago, and was,
by his victory, at-the head of the party
in Illinois, and seeing through the well
laid plans of the managers, that free
trade was to be the gainer only, by the
exercises, we presume, concluded he
would show them Carter Harrison was
present and held some views of. hie
own about the foture of the demo
cratic party. Col. Vilas, the bombas
tic orator from Wisconsin, had deliv
ered himself of the event or what
was down on the programme to be, the
event of the evening, a hi-falutin
free trade tirade in which he discovered
the country had already gone to the "old
harry " on general principles ; when
Mr. Harrison, iu reply to the toast
"Public- office a public trust," proceed
ed to Ore a bomb shell iuto the ranks
of the free traders that Immediately
dispersed the whole crew. Spanking
of the free trade bug-bear which had
been so extravagantly lauded to the
skies, Mr. Harrison said:
I am a believer iu free trade in the
abstract. You can not get it, as Mr.
Hui lburt says you must have a vast
revenue. Why, then, talk of a ques
tion that does not and can not affect
the people, but will simply split us,
when juu have got a living issue be
fore Us the issue of striking down
tbat damnable doctrine said to have
been, enunciated by a Democrat, " To
the victor belongs the spoils." This is
of far more Imporatuue, for a taiiif will
make men prosperous or it will make
men not prosperous; but this thing of
a party working simply to hold offices
a party that is out trying to get in,
a party that is in trying to stay in for
the sake of winning spoils, needs to be
' But do not make a platform to be
spoken about in Illinois and sneered
over in Pennsylvania. Do not make a
platform that one part of your coun
try denies while another part of your
country preaches it up. He honest, I
say. Be bold and be fearless. Say
that the tariff must and shall be re
formed. It has errors iu it. It has
criminal sides. You can reform it
and still have revenue, and yet not
drive our friends from us who believe
ia other parts of the democratic doc
trine. What is the democratic doe
trine? Some say it is the tariff ques
tion. Tne tana was a free trade tar
iff, or tariff for revenue was the doc
trine of the democratic party in the
past. It was an incident, however,.
It was not the great underlying princi
dle of the democratic party. It is not
a principle. It is simply a policy.
"I believe in living issues. I be
lieve in the democracy. I do not want
the democracy of the dead past. I do
not want to tie myself to a dead corpse
tbat is lying yonder in the distance.
that we have trodden over and the
GKEEN OVER ITS GRATE.
I want to be lied to living issues, and
there are plenty of them, tbat we may
go before the people and win on."
There are veiy many sensible things
in these pointed remarks, as good ad
vice to the party of outs trying to get
in; and when. Mayor Harrison says
this question "is not a principle. It is
simply a policy ;" he speaks sensibly
and wisely. There is much more wis
dom in these remarks than in a whole
river of the reckless . untruthful gush
of the man Vilas, who ought to go and
sit at the feet of Wiggins and learn
something about the witul. Mayor
Harrison well understands that, the
mechanic and laborer of this great
country is today an intelligent man,
and well informed upon this question;
'hence he sees clearly the folly of a
great party attempting to make a na-
ional campaign in the year 1884, by
making war upon the industries of the
nation. Mr. Harrison's only fault is,
iu nis not being honest enough to ssy
like Mr. Randall and others, that the
interests of the American manufacntr
er, and that of the artisan, laborer,
and producer, as well as the vast reve-

protection. " That this is the truth and
that it is destined for many years to
be the truth is unquestionably true.
The supreme court of the U. S. has
just enunciated an important opinion
fpvorable to the brokers of Chicago
upon the question of gambling in op
tions. The question decided by the
eourt was, whether the brokers culd
sue for services rendered and money
advanced .in representing the partus
gambling in options; although the
original contracts and deals were gam
bling transactions. The court in de
ciding the question holds that the
broker can maintain such an aotion ;
as they do not sue upon the original
contract, and cannot be placed in the
same position as the party suelng for
the enforcement of an original agree
ment; although the court says they
may be remotely connected with the
immorality of the original contract.
