THE REPUBLICAN PLATFORM.
The republican party of the state
f Nebraska gives renewed expres
iiin of ita 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 ot union oetween all repub
licans in the state of Nebraska.
We congratulate the people upon
the marvelous prosperity attending
the development ana growth ot tne
state of Nebraska during its twenty -foar
years of statehood under re
publican administration, and which
has brought us to the front rank
among the leading states of the
anion; and we can fearlessly assert
that n state which has baen coa
tralledby democratic power,during
a ay considerable time of the same
period, can compare with us in the
economical management of public
a flairs, in the rapid ratio of increase
itt population, wealth and general
prosperity, notwithstanding the
fact that there are within the
borders of the state a number of
dissatisfied persans who took ad
ttntage of the general financial de
pression which swept over the en
tire country to pave their way into
temporary prominence by declaim
ing against the welfare of our peo
ple and slandering the fair name of
our state. The rains from heaven
and the rich soil, vigorously culti
vated by the energetic hands ot our
farmers, have produced such bount
iful crops and such unrivaled pros
perity that shall silence all calam
ity talkers and add to the strength
and enthusiasm of the republican
We congratulate President Harri
son upon his eminently wise, loyal
and courageous ad mi Mistral ion, and
declare our absolute confidence in
his integrity, ability and patrio
tism, and pledge him our cordial
support in the discharge of the
duties devolving upon him 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. Blaine.
We approve or tne silver coinage
act of the present administration,
by which the entire product of the
silver mines of the I mted States is
added to the currencvof 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 aud
novCVso apparently near. The free
and ln limited coinage of silver
would tend to the 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 powerof
the dollar which would be used to
purchase the products of the farmer.
We are in favor of having every
dollar as good as any other dollar.
We demand the maintenance pf
the American system of protection
to American industry and labor, the
policy that has been identified with
every period of our national pros
perity. , '
We ailmire the genius of that
heroic statesman. William McKin
ey. Jr., whom the people of Ohio
will make their next governor as a
recognition of his magnificent ser
vices to the country . We alsp com
mend and endorse that jolicy of re
ciprocity by which the Central and
J..fh American nations and the
Spanish Indies are being opened up
to our iraucupuu '"""" . ---and
by which all the surplus
products of onr cohntry may find a
v-irtet ad b" irh'Jt all ot-r r
justice ami widen the opportunities
among these classes. To their sup
port in the future, as in the past, we
pledare our most intelligent judg
ment and most sincere endeavor.
We denounce the Grand Island
platform of the democratic party as
trained 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 oi mis in
dictment we point to the pretended
friendship for the soldier, while at
the same time the democratic party
has always proclaimed against the
granting of liberal pensions; to the
free silver plank, intended to deceive
the supporters ot tree and unlim
ited coinaire 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 tne 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.
We 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 disgraceiui
to a political organisation.
We denounce the democratic
party for its double dealing with
the civil and political rights of the
people, wherein it appears to favor
tree and untrammeled elections tn
the state of Nebraska, but never
raises its voice against the political
outrages practiced against the re
publican voters, white ana oiacK,
throughout the democratic states of
We arraicrn the democratic party
as the enemy of labor, scheming to
break down the defense of protec
tive laws, to block the wheels of
home industry, and to degrade the
masses of the people a oartv con
trolled by aristocratic and sectional
tendencies, the lecracy ot slavery.

HONESTY THE BEST POLICY.
The democratic party is not hon
est in its dealings with the tariff
question. It pretends not to under
stand how snirar may be furnished
to the people at a less price if it
made free and how the price of tin
may be lowered if a duty is imposed
upon it.' If the party desired to
place this matter before the people
in its true light, it would readily
concede that a tariff on sugar is a
tax simply because it does not
stimulate home production, and
by home competition break the
foreign monopoly. Every demo
crats that advocates a tariff on
West India sugar knows that it
can not be prohtably grown in
America let the duty be as high as
it may siniphy because our climate
is not fitted.
But such is not the case with tin.
We have been depending: upon a
reign monopoly for tin for a
great many years. We have rich
mines of tin ore in this country, but
if our people should develop them
and attempt to erect the costly
plants for the manufacture of tin
plate, these foreign syndicates
would at once lower the price and
crowd our people to the wall. But
by the aid of a duty our people are
permitted to erect their plants un
molested and after different plants
have been established and healthy
competition stimulated there is not
a shadow of doubt that tin will be
furnished much cheaper than when
we were compelled to pay the price
dictated by the foreign combine.
A Cure for Paralvsls.
Frank Cornelius, of Purcell, Ind.
Ten, says: "1 induced Mr. Pinsou,
whose wife had paralysis in the face
to buy a bottle of Chamberlain's
Pain Balm. To their great suprise
before the bottle had all been used
she was a great deal better. Her
face had been drawn to one side;
but the Pain Balm relieved all
pain and soreness, and the mouth
assumed its natural shape." It is

should think, however, that since

or at point blank range, the kangaroo is

One peculiarity of the kangaroo is
that, after being started up, he very
rarely swerves from his course, through
which peculiarity he is easily "potted"
