THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM
The republican party of the state
of .Nebraska gives renewed expres
sion of its devotion to the princi
ples of the republican party and de
clares that those principles, as ex
pressed by the national republican
convention, should be the strong
point of union between ail repub
licans in the siale of .' h?-niv.n.

declare our absolute eonnueiice in
his integrity, abiiiiy and jialrio
tism, and pledge him our cordial
support in the discharge of the
duties devolving upon hint' as the
chief magistrate of the nation.
We rejoice in the restoration of
dignity, vigor and statesmanship in
the conduct of our foreign affairs
under the guiding hand of Amer
ica's favorite son, james G. Hlaine.
We approve ot the silver coinage
act of the present administration,
by which the entire product of Ihe
silver mines of the United States is
added to the currency of the people,
but we denounce the democratic;
doctrine of free and unlimited coin
age of silver as a financial policy
liable to precipitate the people of
every city and every state in the
Union in a prolonged and disas
trous depression, and delay the re
vival of business enterprise ami
prosperity so ardently desired and
now so apparently near. The free
and unlimited coinage of silver
would tend todhe hoarding of gold
and to force the use of cheap money
in the payment of wages in every
workshop, mill, factory, store and
farm, and tend to the scaling down
of the wages of the toilers and
weakening the purchasing power of
the dollar which would he used to
purchase theproducts of the farmer.
We are in favor of having every
dollar as good as any other dollar.
We demand the maintenance of
the American system of protection
to American industry and labor, the
policy that has been identified with
everv period of our national pros
perity. We" admire the genius of that
heroic statesman. William McKin
lev. Jr.. .whom the people of Ohio
will make their next governor as a
'rdcojjrVitioii of his magnificent ser-
' to th country . e also com-
ndand endorse that iolicy of re--ocity
by which the Central and

ih Indies are being opened up

capital and corporate powers. v e

nient and most sincere endeavor.
We denounce the Grand Island
platform of the democratic party as
framed with the deliberate purpose
to mislead and deceive; wherein
sympathy is expressed where none
is felt; wherein help is proposed
where none is rendered; wherein
purposes are avowed which are not
entertained. In support of this in
dictment we point to the pretended
friendship for the soldier, while at
the same lime the democratic party
has always proclaimed against the
granting of liberal pensions; to the
free silver plank, intended to deceive
the supporters of free ami unlim
ited coinage of silver, when it is
known that many of the leaders of
the party are opposed to the doc
trine; to the failure to give the re
lief from exhorbitant freight rates
while it was afraid to either ap
prove or censure the action of its
acting alien governor for vetoing
the Newberry bill.
WeJ? denounce the democratic
party for its insinuations against
the integrity of the supreme court
of the state as an effort to make the
judicial powers subordinate to
political parties and as disgraceful
to a political organization.
We denounce the democratic
partv for its double dealing with
the civil and political rights of the
people, wherein it appears to favor
free and untraunneled elections in
the slate of Nebraska, but never
taises its voice against the political
outrages practiced against the re

TilK present has done more
toward finding good markets for
our surplus products than
other administration. It will
still more in that line after a
more reciprocity treaties
TllKRE is talk of Dritish capital
sts making investments in this
country for the purpose, of course,
of avoiding the;duty imposed upwn
their pauper made goods. If we
mistake not they will find it impos
sible to employ pauper labor in this
country, which may serve to dis
courage them in a measure.
This will be a hard winter on
democrats. In this state they have
no available candidate for supreme
judge and are compelled to fall
back upon a fourth class lawyer
who left the republican party be
cause there was 110 probability of
being elected to office; over in Iowa
they have been compelled to dodge
the discussion of national issues
and are attempting to stive their
political heads by catering to the
whiskey ring; in Ohio the McKinley
ley bill and free coinage proposi
tion are the issues, and the repub
licans, under the leadership of Mc-
Kinley and Sherman, the two
greatest disciples of these issues in
America, have already put the ene
my to flight; in New York the bet
ter element of the democracy has
openly declared in opposition to
the Tannr.any crowd ami their in
fluence will he exerbM in behalf of
the repuplican ticket. A hard win
ter for democracy, indeed.
ASTO MR. EDGEHTON? j
Joaeph W Kdgcrton first became j
known in Nebraska fourteen year
ago as" a patent well borer in Imuii-
as county. Hecoming tired of
boring holes in the earth he spent
. . ?.. .
nhrieltime in an .mo. r,
and blossomed out with a copy ol
the statues, an abundance of as
surance and a tin sign as a lawyer.
A short time afterward he was
discovered as a republican office
Keeker in 1'olk county with an of-
i.i Si nniishurir. Failinir in his !
ambition in the republican j
ranks he became a rabid anti-monopolist.
Six or seven years ago he .drifted
to South Omaha and between real
estate speculations and a salary of
$TjO a month as city attorney he
managed to eke out an existance. j
The city council which elected him
v-w .l.Mnoerat ie : and ISdiierton had
b3- this time again changed his
politics. As city attorney and solic
itor for a city council which
plastered the young city with
mortgages, his record was dis
creditable if not corrupt. He
helped a disgracefully incompetent
city government to hide from
public view some of the ugliest
jobs ever perpetrated by a muni
cipal administration in this state.
After dropping out of his job in
South Omaha he became a union
labor candidate for something or
another and then went back to the
democracy to take a position as as
sistant to the democratic county
attorney in criminal cases arising
in Sout Omaha.
In due time he joined the inde
pendents ami his vaultingambition
was gratified by a nomination for
the office of attorney general. He
was no more tit to become attorney
general than he is to be a cardinal.
He ran behind his ticket every
where, ,and especiall' at home,
where he was best known. He
could not carry South Omaha for
justice of the pence. In face of a
clean majority of over3,txX) for Geo.
W. Hastings he united with the de
feated prohibitionists in a baseless
contest which cost the tax-payers of
Nebraska over $11.0iK. and plunged
the state into turmoil and conten
tion. lie signed and approved the con
test papers in which the county in
which he lives was maligned and
slandered. lie knew he had no
right wlndcverto the off.ee and no
show of claim , to it but there was a
chance to disfranchise his own
people to his personal advantage
and he siex.ed upon

Some of the most startling, m
terstinir discoveries of the life and
customs of buried Kgypt are now
beiiig.made through extensive exca
vattions. These discoveries are
exciting a great interest. Many
discoveries are, however, being
made in our country that are re
markable, among which we may
mention that of Haller's'Pain I'ara
lyzer which effects entire relief, and
in many cases a complete cure of
that terrible disease rheumatism,
and which also relieves pain of all
kinds. J'or sale by all druggists.
Mr. C. 15. Tones, of Spring Hill
Iowa, savs: "1 have used Chamber.
Iain's Piiin 'Halm for severe and
painful burns with better effect than
anything I have ever tried. It re
lieves the pain instantly and cures
without leaving a scar." Pain Halm
is one of the most useful medicines
that any families can be provided
with, especialy for rheumatism,
lame back, sprains, bruises, tooth
ache, ear ache and. like ailmeuts.
One application will relieve the pain
and a fair trial insure a cure. - 30

A Fatal Mistake.
Physicians make no more fatal
mistake than when they inform pa
tients that nervous heart troubles
come from the stomach and are of
little consequence. Dr. Franklin
Miles, the noted Indiana specialist,
has proven the contrary in his new
book on "Heart Disease" which may
be had free of F. G. Fricke & Co..
who guarantee and recommend Dr.
Miletv unequalled new Heart Cure,
which has the largest sale of any
heart remedy in the world. It cures
nervous and organic heart disease,
short breath, fluttering, pain or ten
derness in the side, arm or shoulder,

Nervine cures headache, tits, etc.
