The Denver Exposition which the
IIkkald readers have been kept in-
fonncd concerning, by our able corres
pondent at that city, is pronounced a
gratifying success. This is ia the larg
est measure due to the energy of Mr.
Frank II. Wilson, the assistant secre
tary, who has practically had the great
er volume of work u.nder his own man
agement. TnK latest concerning Mr. Blaine's
greit book ia that it will contain a steel
likeness of I'oscoc Onkling, and that
full justice will be done him in all his
nationul work and statesmanship. Any
who have studied Mr. llaine's charac
acter would not question tlii J. He is a
man who rises above personalities in
all the great efforts of his life. Be
lieving in a policy radically differing
from others in his own party, no man
has ever suffered in his personal work
or had his Republicanism disparaged
by James G. Blaine.
It seems that tbe wonderful way in
whieh the Saunders County Tribune,
brought forth Mr. Reese as a candidate
for Supreme Judge, by tackling the in
dustry, ability and "old blood" of the
present bench is not meeting with such
flattering unction as the Tribune
thought its heavy weight article would
create. The Crete Union views the
case as follows:
The Union does not object to Hie an
nouncement, by the Wahoo Tribune of
the candidacy of Hon. M. B. Iteese, for
the Supreme Court, but it does ob
ject very pointedly to the spirit and
matter of tbe reflection upon the su
preme court as at present constituted,
bv which that announcement was
troduced. 1'lease let Mr. iteese
upon his own merias.
Tub Teachers' Institute just closing,
which has been in session two weeks,
is one of the most successful ones ever
held in the county. This is worthy of
more than passing notice. Institute
work is an important factor in school
work. It enlivens, brightens and en
courages the teachers who are worked
harder and given less encouragement
than any class of workers. A live, in
teresting institute, is au oasis to the
teaching fraternity, that coming only
once a year, lingers a twelvemonth
and is alwavB recollected by the
genuine teacher with pleasure and prof
it. The success of the institute is a
matter for congratulation on the part
of the citizens of the county as well.
Every advantage given the teacher is
leceived in the schools themselves, and
that directly. The schools of Cass
county will be better this year than
ever before. They will be more inter
esting, more instructive, and more will
certainly b9 occomolishcd. This is
eminently as it should be. Cass coun
ty and Nebraska schools in general are
behind the common schools in some
States, but only from the fact that the
time Has not yet elapsed sufficient to
cive the system that thoroughness in
work that time only can eive. Strong,
successful institutes, like the present,
are powerful motors in advancing edu
cational work, and their effect is not
present or temporal.
The latest scheme evolved, and that
is given form if not substance through
the press reports, is to annex all of
British Columbia to the United States,
or in other words the west half of
British America. There are no reports
to show whether Great Britain has
been consulted or not, but the promo
ters of this scheme evidently consider
this a matter of secondary considera
tion. British Columbia i3 said to fa
vor this scheme, and with it accom
plished, a magnificcn t railroad enter
prise, backed by immense steamsbip
lines on tbe coast, is portrayed, which
reads like an Aladdin story. The an
nexation of this great trerritory would
of course be speedily followed by tak.
ing in Canada and the Hudson Bay ter
ritory, which would give us direct con
nections to the great ice producin
country adjacent to the North Pole.
Then these United States would have
to annex Mexico, in order to provide a
home market for these products of the
north,1 and the several annexation lines
would destroy the tariff, as il now ex
ists, between these different countries,
and the continent would have absolute
free trade. We look upon tlm'.quei
tlon of annexation as the scheme of
some Democrat ia search of the millennium
Senator Wilson, in his opening
campaign speech, at Clarinda, Iowa,
took for his text, the declaration that
Democracy created, enlaigcd upou and
harped about during the last national
campaign. Thi9 declaration was iu ef
fect that the will of the majority must
be observed, and that any detraction
from that endangered the life of the
Republic. This ilank in their platform
has been uppermost in the Democratic
heart from the time of Tilden's fail
ure to buy a certain part of the elec
toral college, when he ran for Presi
dent. Senator Wilson brings up the
national platform of the Democratic
party, hold9 it up before the Iowa bour
bons, and asks them to reconcile it
witli the position that the liquor army
has placed them in -this year. At a
non-partison flection held June, 1382.
The people of Iowa, in a vote nearly
50,000 greater Itfian cast for Governor in
1881, declared by a majority of 30,000
that prohibition should be a part of
the law of the State. It was the most
direct and honest majority any people
had over expressed. Yet this year
Iowa Democrats, following in the wak?
of the liquor interests in thar State,
have declared against that expressed
majority and are lighting it out on that
line. It is a sorry plight to put old
Democrats in, who believe iu the edicts
of Democracy as promulgated by their
national convention, to sit down in
Iowa and vote the expressed will of the
national Democratic party in 1880 a
fraud and a failure. Senator Wilson
has given the true significance to the
Iowa Democratic position, and he will
puncture them with their inconsisten
cies until they see their ridiculous and

The Journal, has been, by various
periods and at various times, accused
of sitting oa the fence. Of course such
a charge is meant to be mainly figura
tive, but it strikes us since reading the
riattsmouth Herald of the 13th on the
capital contract, that we have been
crowded out of the best place. State
Te article of the IIkkald of the lo,
referred to, undoubtedly places us on
the fence. This paper does not arro
gate to itself the duties of the supreme
court; what the Herald has said con
cerning this case prior to its reaching
that court has not leen of a nature to
place us on the fence to any great ex
tent, we flatter ourselves. The proper
resort just about now, is on some ele
vated position of observation, until the
supreme court, which body we have
perfect confidence in, shows the public
which is the right side of this question.
But the Journal need not be exercised
about being crowded from its favorite
position. The barb has pierced too
deeply in the sfaTk of the Journal's un
mentionables for this paper to hope to
dislodge it at one competitive trial.
No paper in the state would believe
the Herald could dismount the Jour
nal in such a summary manner. The
Journal is simply a little frighteued,
but it will see how secure it is when it
recovers from its temporary spell of
Speaking of the recent election in
Utah, the Philadelphia Times rcmarKs
that "next to the news that the Dutch
have taken Holland, probably the most
excitinsr report that could be circulateo
w juld be that the Mormons had carried
Utah. Thev have done this too, unaer
difficulties. All the polvgamists were
disfranchised and a solemn commission
was out there to see that the work was
well done. In spite of this, reports in
dicate that the Mormons have carried
every county but one. The people
called Gsntiles have long charged tha
if elections were free they would have
a good chance to carry the territory. A
year or two ago they were so entuusi -astic
that thev sent up a delegate to
congress in spite of the fact that his op
ponent had received something hko ten
votes to his one. Now, however, that
they have all the chance there is going,
they studiously refrain from voting,
and the Mormons are stronger man
ever. It is quite clear that something
more effective than the Edmunds law
will have to be thrown at polygamy and
thrown with much surer aim, before
that institution ceases to exist on
American soil." -
HE MONKEYED WITH THE SAW.
- Mr. Tom. Ebright, a young gentle
man of Brownville, thought to have
some sport by thrashing the -XtepablU
can editor of that place, Mr. John C.
Thompson; bat the man of the scissors
and. the paste pot was too mucn ior
him, and it was only the interference of
bystanders, that saved him from being
reduced to a grease spot. The Repub
lican had said that ISrownville posses
sed the laziest young man in the State,
and without waiting till tbe returns
were in young Ebright took the matter
for granted, concluded that it meant
him, and sallied forth for satisfaction
with the above result. Tommy, "don't
