Our democratic friends w ish to know
who Mr. Clements the republican nom
inee for county commissioner js: had
the manager of that party resided iD
Cass county any great length of time he
would know John Clements was one of
our oldest and most responsible settlers
and a Cass county farmer for fifteen
years and upwards, in our midst, thor
oughly identified with our people and
conversant with their every want, while
Mt Kiies is comparatively new comer
from Iowa, and a resident of the district-
ue sei-KS to represent as county com
missioner, but a short time.
Frederick Douglass, Robert G
Ingersoll and other eloquent advocates,
have Jiad their innings at the Supreme
Court of the United States, taking that
tribunal roundly to task fr its recent
decision against the constitutionality of
the Civil Rights legislation by Con-1
Soiae of these gentlemen go to the ex-
travagant extent of claiming that the
doctrine laid down by ihc Sui reme
Court in the Civil -Rights test case, is as
monstrous as that enunciated by Chief
Justice Tiney and his colleagues in
1857. It is haid to believe that men of
the intelligence, learning, and
knowledge of public affairs, of Fred
erick Douglas, or Mr. Ingersoll, would
so far forget themselves, or the truth, as
to make an assertion like this one. In
the case now attracting the attention
of the Nation, Congress, doubtless sup-J
posing it was acting within the scope
of the Thirteenth and Fourteenth
amendments to the Federal Constitu
tion, enacted this Civil-Rights bill or
law, which was trenchently questioned,
at the date of its passage, by statesmen
and jurists of unquestioned patriotism.
The Suprems Court today, passing upon
this lecislation, by Congress, finds that
that co-ordinate branch of the govern
ment exceeded its authority and mis
took the scope and intent of the amend
ments to the constitution.
None of the advocates of the law,
thus set aside by the court of last re
sort in this country, pretend to claim
that Congress possesses the authority
to enact such legislation iu the absence
of these the Thirteenth and Four
teenth amendments, and all the Su
preme Court does is to say that these
amendments do not warrant the legis
lation in question.
In the Dred Scott case a Missouri
elave, claiming his freedom upon the
ground that he had been transferred
by his master from ti.e soil of a
slave State into territory made
free by act of Congress,
attempted to maintain r.n action in the
circuit court of ih- U.-uted States for
his freedom claiming to le a citizen of
a different state f rum that of his mas
ter the defendant. When chief Justice
Taaey and a majority of the old demo
cratic regime who held posscssieu of
our Supreme bench said of the com
plamant on account of his color, that
he was a "Being of an inferior order
altogether unGt to associate with the
"white race either in social or political
''relations; and so far inferior that he
"had no right which th.? white man
"was bound to respect;'' from t his bru
tal decisional! npjpal to puMic opinion
was ha-1. wliicli, in tlic- cwl overthrow
that tribunal; neither tin- sentiment nor
opinion of the preprnt iiprrue
inrt in thr. j- ij n n .f tl t 1 r
bar of public opinion, warrants any
such uu attar k upou its Interiity and
patriotism, as the one, said to be made
by Mr. Ingersoll. The Supremo Court
of the country in composed, a majority
at leat, of patriotic citizens, and men
who have just us high a reaped for tho
rights of th private individual as 'ol.
Ing.-rfoll can possibly have, and if an
assault is t' bo made upon .that tribu
nal let it be made upon tli-ir interpre
tation o'thc law; let it bo jIk'-.vji wlrre
in they are wrong.
Mk. Newell is a bank di recto
says our democratic ortrau, ami uses
the county funds for undue purposes
Mr. Newell authorizes the stateraen
that this assertion is false in every re
spect. This kind of electioneerinr of
course is anticipated by everybody
conversant with the manner m
which, the democratic managers cou
duct their campaign ; however, we are
I glad to have the reasons why the demo
cratic party of Cass county ask repub
hcans to vote for William II. Cushing
First, Mr. Cushing "'is a democrat,'
aud scorns to "piu hii faith" to the re
publican party "dying of its own iuate
corruption!" second, Mr. Cushing is
'joung;" third, he is "a-ctite;" fourth
he is"ambillous these are the reasons
given why Mr. Cushing is the prefer
red caudidate of the democratic party;
hence, republicans are exhorted to vote
for Mr. Cushing instead of a gentle
man of age, experience, integrity, and
known devotion to the principles of
the republican party ; a man "who gave
his time, and young manhood, to his
country in her hour of need; who fol
lowed the gallant Sheridan in the Shen
andoah valley as a private soldier, al
ways atj the front, and whose whole
life entitles him to the respect and
confidence of his fellow citizens.
"Without republican votes Mr. Cush
ing cannot be elected in Cass ecu utyl
Arc the reasons given by the demo
cratic organ, such a would arrant
republicans in voting against Mr. Mew-
ell, and tor this ambitions candidate
who. to use the language of the sheet
which professes to champion his cause
and represent him in this campaign,
detests the ''inatc corruption of the re
But further, Mr. Xewell owns stock
in a bank, and that is another objec
iton. Mr. Cushing is the servant of a
National Bank; that we suppose is
no objection from a democratic stand
point for a democratic candidate.
Mr. Cushing is a "more export ac
countant." yet everybody agrees that
William II. Newell has made the best
County Treasurer Cass county has ever
had. Mr. Cushing is a voung man who
has never had experience in the busi-
ness affairs of iite, except as a clerk in
tne Dank to which he is at present giy
iaS his tims; yet, he is, to use the deni
ocratic argument, the bet qualified
man to take charge of the Cass County
Treasury. We apprehend everybody
will see and appreciate the force of
these arguments ia favor of Mr. Cush
ing, ana tnat especially republicans
who believe in the old party, aud her
proud record, will be happy to know
why they are expected to vote for Wil
liam II. Cushing, for whom, when the
Journal says he is young, active, ambi-
tlous, and a strong democrat, it ex
hausts the list of his qualifications.
Against Mr. Jennings the demo
cratic organ has several griev
ances, one is, that he keeps a deputy
who doos not suit the editor of that
paper, and last but not least, he once
bolted a republican ticket and helped
elect a democrat to the office of county
clerk of Cass county. It would appear
that our democratic opponents have
laid up this last grievance against John
and caunot forgive him for it.
We admit if Mr. Jennings ever did
deliberately bolt his ticket to help the
democracy of Cass county into power
it was a serious blunder; but then, for
all this, the republican party has long
since forgiven John, and trust
ed him with her honor and
her reputation by placing him in
charge of the records and seal of Cass
county and for all this have received
back from him a clean balance sheet
in the shape of an office honestly ad
ministered with skill and ability,, ac
ceptably, to the entire satisfaction of
the people of Cass county, Even the
democratic organ i9 forced to say,
"There is no question about the compe
tency of Mr. Jennings;'' and finally,
this is the reason the republican party
have nominated both Mr. Jennings and
Mr, Newell, and the reason why the
people of this county intend triumph
antly electing both of these gentlemen,
together with the entire republican
ticket. Competency, not youth and
ambition, is the qualification the re
publican party requires of its candi
dates. Of Mr. Green, Mr. Jenning's
opponent, the Journal says in substance
that h? is a fine business man. The
IIehald, on the conhary, understands
that John Green's particular fault 1?,
that he is not a good nor competent
business man, and is intnnned that
Mr. Green has repeatedly failed in
business, his last fallun !dng at Ash
land, Nebraska, anil that very recently ;
of this we only speak upon information
received from republicans and demo
crats living in that . neighborhood, and
if we arc in error, will very gladly do
Mr. Green the justice of making the
correction. That JohnGrccu i sK i -ally
"a hale fellow well met." know
to b? a fact; but hi tun - for adminis
tering ollice in 'J.ii.s county has not jet
arrived. We are g!au the democratic
mouth piece has seen lit to nhar.don.Mr.
lleeson long niough to ad lres- itself
to the ticket it floats at its head.
