Tim; IIkkai.h will issue no paper to
morrow. The -;i!e that has liis head
quarters in this oflice Ii;im the day to
himself, untl the boy a at the cases will
have a holiday with the rest of the
force. It is a day to celebrate.
Tomorrow is the Fourth of July, and
airuiu wo celebrate the anniversary of
the declaration of our American inde
cndence; clothed in the simple liabili
merits of citizens of the Itepublie,
we come together without the command
of an arbitrary ruler; we do so of our
own right, of our own good choosing,
as citizens of a free republic, amid the
clamor of a popular, careless joy.
Upon this occasion tle thoughtful mind
reflecting runs back reviewing the ever
widening course of progress, where our
nationality has opened up the path, and
led the way. It recalls the great names
inscperably blended with our nations
growth, reeo'ints their virtues, and their
deeds, strong, true, supreme, heroic! as
ever made a people's history grand.
It marshals up in grand ai ray those
heroes of the revolution from their long,
silent sleep. It pictures forth once
more those men of sterling worth as
they composed that httlo colonial Con
gre?, upon the threshold of the
new continent, whose hands sigued
that immortal Declarntiou of Independ
ence, which called a nation into lire
and started it forth on its career of
glory. There is a mighty significance
n the celebration of this occasion A
lapse of over a century is now 'em
braced in our history, as a nation. It
has been a momentous period, standing
O'lt on the p:iges ot history, beyond
and aoove all others, not alone in
military glory, in manifestations cf na
tional greatness, nut in the grand ex
pansion of a Christian civilization.
Iu discoveries that have blessed hu
manity, in achievements of science that
dawn on us like the light of a new
creation; ttill more, if possible, it has
been a wonderful period in the devel
opment and exercise of charity, hu
manity, freedom of thought and deed.
It has clearly demonstrated the m ij is-
ty and nobility of human uature. It
is rich with the testimony of intellec
These are glorious, pioud, thoughts
for the American cilizrn upon this
day, which every man, woman and
child in our broad, iho-porous, happy
laud should observe. Tins is kept
alive the patriotism of the citizen.
Thus wc instill into the minds of the
youth of this country, pride of national
ly; love of country and devotion to
those principles upon which the Repub
lic is fouinh d.
The Herald hopes every one of our
readers will throw aside the cures and
perplexities of business for a brie day,
and tomorrow reuew their patriotism
by celebrating the 4th of July, and
teaching their children those higher
lessons which are to be drawn from its
observation, and this is the Herald's
4th of July oration to its readers.
Had Mr. Henri Wattersou, our
friend Dr. Miller, and our neighbor the
great lion hearted anti-monopolist from
"Arbor Springs Lodge," taken the
safety precautions, observed by the old
Connecticut preacher, when they were
going off half cocked and bellowing
for free trade a short time ago, they
would have been saved the inortifica
liou and humiliation, this hot weather,
of having to take back and explain
away their recent zealous hurrahs for
that already dead issue. The Connec
ticut clergyman placed extraordinary
reliance upon the judgment of hisdea
coa who was noted for his strong com
mon sense; the crop needed rain badly
and the preacher was a great believer
in the efficacy of prayer, but he w9 too
ciutious and wise to take a step in the
direction of obtaining the coveted bles
sing without first, consulting his dea
con; consequently, he inquiringly said:
" Hadn't 1 oetter pray for rain today,
"Not today, Dominie, 1 think." was
the prudent rcplv; "the wind ion't
The moral we would impress upon
our unfortunate Democratic leaders
hereafter, is to quietly ascertain which
way the wind blows before they start
out on another wild goose chase.

E TEMPERANCE PLANK OF
THE IOWA REPUBLICAN PLAT
I he third resolution contained in
the platform adopted by the Kepubli
can purty of Iowa, is just now under
going spirited crit'clsm by the press
of that state ; a casual reading of the
resolution, as wired abroad at the time
of its adoption, led us to undeistum
that I lie Irn .Moines convention in
obrdienco to the will of the people O
that progressive slate, expressed at a
noii-prlisan election favored a re
submission of the amendment to the
Iowa Constitution, prohibit in tr tiie
lhjuor trallic in that state, to a vols oi
the people. This amendment had been
annulled by a decisiou of the Supreme
Court of Iowa, after two thorough
and exhaustive argumenls, and srreat
dissatisfaction has been expressed by
the peop'.e of Iowa with the decision
of their Supreme Court iu thus setting
aside the will of the people expresses
at the ballot box; and the demand was
made by the people, emphatically ex
pres.ed at their primary meetings and
county conventions for a re-submission
of the question to a vote of the electors
ot the btate; delegations were so in
structed, and this singularly wordee
and constructed plank of the platform
was accepted by it as a declaration by
that convention iu accordance with the
instructions received from the masses
of the republican party of Iowa at
their primary meetings and conven
tions; but it appears this is not the pur
port of the resolution adopted by that
convention, on the contrary it turns
out that the framcrs of the resolution
so dratted it, that it commits the le-
publicau party of' Iowa to the radical
and revolutionary ground of consider
ing the amendment alive and in force
regardless ot the .edict of the great
court of last resort iu that state. If it
is true that this is the real meaning of
this plank in the platform of that party
in town, it is simyly indefensible: no
party can aflord to take any such
grounds, and we do not believe the
gieat convention, which accepted that
platform at the hands of its committee
on resolutions, and adopted the same
wi'h such fervor and eutl. usiasni, un
derstood this plunk to mean what its
plain language now seems to import.
As is said by or e exchange iu com
rueuting upon this portion of the Iowa
republican platlo:m, "Xo party can
afford to elevate the town meeting above
the courts," much less strike down
co-ordinate brBncu of the state govern
ment in that manner. The dissatisfied
wing of the republican party in Iowa
claim this objectionable resolution was
tricked upon the convention, hence the
severe criticisms and strictures upon it
Senator Van Wyck on the Niobrara
Dead wood Route.
(.From the Omaha Bee.) i
Talking about General Van Wyck, I
met the excentric and excitable but en
ergetic and honest old war horse the
other evening, and asked him about the
Nebraska mail " route. "Pooh, pooh
umha yes, yes," said the senator, "I
should think so." D'n rascals. An
other star route job scotched. That's
all, see? No more necessity for three
mail routes to the Hills than there is
six postoffices in Omaha. Called atten
tion to the scheme hist Congress. The
plan was to get two more routes for two
more railroads. One from Chamber
lain, Dakota, to Dead wood, for the
benefit of the Milwaukee & St. Paul
and this one trom Nebraska for the
benefit of the Sioux City fc Pacific
road Deadwood has two daily mails
already and doesn't need any
more. Vhen I came to look up the
country to be served by the Niobrara
route, I found that all the government
receipts from a radius fifty miles around
Niobrara didn't amount to S200 a quar
ter. Talk about helping Northern Ne
biask O yes! The hardy settlers
names on the petitions are three quar
ters soldiers from the Fifth Cavalry
and employees of the sutler at Fort
Niobrara. See? Why, the proposed
tine doesn't run thirty miles in Nebras
ka before it strikes the Indian reserva
tion and the Nebraska mail for Dead
wood wouldn't amount to a letter a
day. Thirteen thousand a year is pret
ty expensive for that isn't it V Eh.
Now, if I believed that northern Ne-
rraka honestly'wanted aud needed the
XiMff reat and that it was a better
and SA0rtr roti e than the others, I
wculd taae clt my coat and work for
it. Hut they don t. It's a railroad
and speculators scheme to bleed the
treasury iu connection with one of the
worst ot the old star route pang.
What's going to be the result? "Well,
I don't know. I've done my duty in
calling Mr. Gresham's attention to the
MORTON, MILLER AND TARIFF.
Democratic Twinshipin Nebraska.
The Omaha Herald is heouing on the
tariff question. Last year in a merely
local fight, the Herald boldly marched
up the tree trade hill, and now at sight
of "the first speck of real war it inarches
down again.. That paper can't quite
summon tne hardihood to say for itselt
that the Ohio tariff plank is good, but
is a most copious borrower of the New
York Herald's nonsense to that effect.
We are glad to know that the Miller
Morton twinship is off on this question.
Jlorton does not eat a word he has ut
tered on the tariff question. Lincoln
And all is not harmony among the
Democracy of Nebraska, and Mr. "Mor
u ton does not eat a word he has uttered
'on the tariff question?' So, then,
Mr. Moitou still believes a tariff for
the " protection of our productive in
dustries " is an' iniquity." That inde
pendent party which the Detroit con
clave foreshadowed may not prove " a
darned barren reality" after all, as the
sainted William Allen used to sav.
Gknkkal Ckook has returned again
for a briet stop at Omaha, and we no
tice the jeople of that city gave him a
rousing reception. His victory in cap
turing the hearts of Omaha's people
is in our opinion a much more
"famous yictor" than the one the
newspapers have leen wining for him
in his campaign after the Apaches.
