Mr. Paknell and his associates are
successful in all their contests for seats
from Ireland, so far; any. this shows
that the Irish people hare a leader ol
ability one who possesses those stay
ing qualities which acknowledges noth
ing short of success.
Let our merchants, our capitalists,
our citizens, all tao up the county fair
and heip put it through in good style.
Tbe people must help the officers of
this society in this matter. We are go
ing to have a good county fair and
everybody is expected to contribute
and help it along.
The Omaha Republican kindly noti
fies the community at large that Ne
braska is getting to the front in excel
lent shape in fruit culture, a fact which
we shall rely upon Otoe, Nemeha,
Washington and other counties to forci
bly demonstrate at the state fair."
.. Considering that fact that Cass coun
ty with Nemaha and .Otoe constitute
the apple district of Nebraska, and that
our Omana epicures are growing fat off
of Cass county fruit just now. The
Herald takes this occasion to say that
the Republican may include Cass coun
ty among the "other counties."
The Gazette-Journal says the Omaha
Bee nd Plattsmouth Herald are after
the scalp of Congressman Laird.
Nothing is farther from the fact, so far
as the Herald is concerned ; of course,
we won't be responsible for Mr. Rose
water during this season of the year;
but so far as James Fitz James is con
cerned, we admire- him very much, and
have a large amount of work mapped
out for htm in the line of statesman
ship, w hen Congress convenes. There
are several railroads to be subdued,
and telegraph pole.n to be re-set, and we
know tue gentleman who won over the
ami monopoly elements of the Third
district is certain to be tbe proper per
son with whom to eutrust these demand
ed reforms. Ob, no, we are for the
member from the "bloody Third."
Much has been writteu in memory of
Jere black's loyuliy at the date of the
outbreak of the rebellion, and many
nice things are being said of the great
lawyer that he was an able -lawyer, is
an undisputed fact, and that he was
strong socially is also true; he was
liked ly everybody who knew, him, for
his jolly, jovial characteristics. That
he was no statesman is evidenced . by
his long career as a narrow minded
politician; especially, do the encomi

death present a sorry eight when the

when his associate traitors of that me
morable administration were executing

the Union, not an indignant nor patri

Pennsylvania representative Jere
Black. What an opportunity to raise

the country of tbe danger menacing the

A cablegram says very emphatically
that there is no truth in the statement
recently circulated in this country that
Mr Gladstone was a subscriber to the
Confederate loan. Tne statement was
not generally credited on this side, as it
is well known that Mr. Gladstone is not
a very rich man and had very little
capital to invest in bonds of any kind.
Ia defeating the. Registration bill
the House of Lords ias no doubt done
another foolish thing. Already Mr.
Gladstone has given notice that at the
nxt'scssion of Parliament he will bring
in a similar measure, of wider scope.
-The bill lowered the rate of franchise
somewhat in Ireland, and removed a
few of the annoyances to which poor
voters are subjected It has been tbe
tate of tbe Lords in defeating measures
that have received the approval ot the
House of Commons to make matters
worse in the end for themselves. Tbe
Registration bill will probably prove no
exception to the. rule. : -y
Most people in this country have but
a very inadequate idea of the depths of
poverty to be found in some parts of
Great Britain, and of the incredibly
low wages paid for some kinds of work.
At a meeting held recently in London;-
the Archbishop of Canterbury
stated that in walking through a-.poor
district, where whole families were em--employed
in making match boxes, he
found that they were enly paid 2 1-4
pence (4 1-2 cents) for making a gross,
and were obtiged to furnish their own
pate! Imagine any one in Ame-ica
making-thirty'-two match -boxes for a
rent and siioDlviusr the paste! The
Archbishop .also - round people wno ;
were paid only eight cents for making ;
an ulster, and only bix cents for mak
ing a suit-of little boy clothes! Tbe
ot ly rejaedy bis grace seemed to see
f Jr twilt!atd of things was migration.
- Here is a problem demanding tbe
serious attention of British statesmen
and philanthropists. A country is. in a
bad way when the only - remedy that
can be found for its poor - classes is to
yet away from It.
