IS HARMONY THE WORD?
There are contingencies in the
politicial situation and combina
tions which arc possible, that will
make it necessary for the republi
can party lo make a united cam
paign this year if it hopes to suc
ceed i n the stale. The party can
win, and ought to win, but it can
not hope to win if it is divided
The strength of the republican
party in Nebraska has been its
weakness. Mischief grew out of
those g-reat majorities which always
made a nomination equivalent lo
election; and factions, relying
upon invicible majorities, cut and
covered until the party bled at
every pore. JJublic servants chosen
by these ever certain majorities did
not always do their duty and con
ventions occasionally failed to
register the popular will. Hence
an independent party in the state
which for two years has held the
scales about even with either of the
two old parties.
It is worse than folly to rake over
the ashes of Ihe pa-3t, but there are
still a few smoldering embers in
those ashes which may be fanned
into flame that shall serve as a
light for the futare. And now. if
the republican party will choose to
"walk in the light," by facing the
future with an honorable purpose,
by healing the wounds and bruises
that factionalism has produced,
and by making individual ambition
subordinate to public good party
policy, it can recover a great deal of
its lost ground and retain the con
fidence and support of voters of Ne
braska for many years to come.
"Let the dead past bury its dead."
In the prsence of an enemy in the
presence of two enemies with our
weapons turned upon each other
we are at the mercy of attack from
front and flank. Foolhardiness can
go no further.
Now suppose that republicans
stop short in their soul-stirring oc
cupation of fighting over again the
gubernatorial battle in 18'J0.
That is past. Whether Richards
was betrayed in his own camp or
whether he was not, is a subject
mat win tall tar snart 01 inspiring
a victory in 1892. The Hub does'nt
care to discues the merits of that
question, but it does want to see a
republican governor emerge from
the battle of the ballots next elec
tion day. Even if Omaha defeated
the republican candidate for gov
ernor in 1890 (admitting this much
for the sake of argument), it is just
as true that the votes of that city
saved the republican candidate
tor supreme judge in 1891. So far
so good. Now does it occur to
those who persist in waging a war
on Omaha that the vote of that city
is very apt to turn the scale on the
electoral and state ticket in Novem
of 1892, and that it may be worth
while to pursue a policy that will
secure Omaha's friendship and
consequently her greatest possible
vote for all of the republican ticket
on election day? Here is food for
A few weeks ago the republicans
of central and western Nebraska
sent up a cry for help. They asked
for recognition. They requested
that the spring convention be
brought west, not for themselves
alone, but in the interest of the
whole party. As a result the con
vention was sent to Kearney by a
unanimous vote of the committee,
but that action is a matter of so re
cent history that the Hub readily
remembers that Omaha republicans
and the Omaha Bee. were the first
to respond to that appeal, and that
they did so without asking favors
for the present or exacting pledges
for the future. Can -not the west
therefore afford to be generous?
Can any portion of the to "there
fore consistently join in a hue and!
cry ag ainst Omaha?
The 1 1 11b won Id have its readers
understand that it is not iimKiny ii
special plea for Omaha or that it
loves Lincoln less, or that it has a
special regard for any particular
locality. It merely recognizes the
fitness of things' It believes that
the Kcarm y convention will mar-'
the advent of the new dispensation,
and that it will be presage of vic
tory through a party harmonized,
re-united and inspired by the best
sentiments that spring from the
masses of the people. It may be
mistaken, but this much it believes,
and it is uiore in sorrow than in
auger that it rees a disposition to
tear open old wounds and sprinkle
upon them the pepper and salt of
rancor and recrimination. Kear
A WORD OF GOOD CHLER FOR RE
PUBLICANS FROM JAMES G.
BLAl N .
I cannot refrain from sending a
word of good cheer on the prospects
of the republican party. On all
leading measures relating to the
industrial and financial interests
of the people, we are strong and
growing stronger. On the contrary
our opp onents ate weak and grow
ing weaker. They are divided; we
are united. If we do not win it is
our own fault. We will be justly
censurable if, with such great meas
ures involved, every republican
does not feel that he is applealed
to personally and that victory in
the election depends on him.
James G. Blaine, February 22, 1892.
"Democratic orators will have a
lively time this summer explaining
why the duty should be taken off
raw wool, and protection to the
amount of 35 per cent continued to
the woolen manufacturer." San
I feel it my duty to say a few
words in regard to Ely's Cream
Balm, and I do so entirely without
solicitation. I have used it more
or less half a year, and have found
it to be most admirable. I have
suffered from catarrh of the worst
kind ever since I was a little boy
and I never hoped for cure, but
Cream Balm seems to do even that.
Many of my acquaintances have
used it -witu excellnnt results.

No healthy person need fear any
dangerous consequences from an
attack of la grippe if properly
treated. It is much the same as a
severe cold and requires precisely
the same treatment. Remain quiet
ly at home and take Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy as directed for a se
vere cold and a prompt and com-
?lete recovery is sure to follow,
his remedy also counteracts any
tendency of la grippe to result in
pneumonia. Among the many
thousands who have used it during
the epidemics of the past two years
we have yet to learn of a single
case that has not recovered or that
has resulted in pneumonia. 25 and

La Grippe SuccessluMy Treated.
"I have just recovered from a sec
ond attack of the grip this year,"
says Mr. Jas. O. Jones, publisher of
the leader, Mexica Texas. ''In the
latter case I used Chamberlain's
Cough remedy-, and I think with
considerable success, only being in
bed a little over two days, against
ten days for the first attnek. The
second attack, I am ratsfied, would
have been equally as bad as the
first but for the use of this remedy,
as I had to go to bed in about six
hours after being struck with it,
while in the first case I was able to
atiend to business about two days
before getting down. 59 cent bot

as he -rave me a lass ol water.
( Jraeious,'' I exclaimed,. 'a w hole lamb

Waiter, I don't want lamb. Make it
inw oysters.1 'Make that lamb one
oyster, raw, raw!" he called so angrily
that I was afraid to tell him I wanted
a dozen. Hut when he brought the
order I found that he had six on the
plate, and thought it was a mistake,
ami that he would 011I3' charge me for
one in the bill if I said nothing about it.
"I did not confide this hope to my
husband, as I knew he would not
countenance it, and he told nie after
ward that he admired my self-control
in not showing surprise at the six
oysters when I fully expected only one.
As I ordered several other things be
sides oysters and was slow about
finishing them, my husband left me in
order to keep a business engagement,
and we agreed to meet again in one
hour at Tiffany's. He paid my bill and
left me eating slowly at the little table,
which was near the door, so near that
when I passed out into the street I did
not go near the clerk.
"As I turned into Broad waw alone
I noticed that several people whom I
passed stared at me curiously. I re
sented this from men, thinking it im
pertinence, but when some women tit
tered I looked down at my hands, my
skirts, my shoes, etc., but could see
nothing out of place, and I knew that
even if my clothes were somewhat
countrified in cut they were not far
enough behind the fashion to warrant
such rudeness, even in New York. Still
the people stared at me and some
turned to look after me. One woman
made a motion as if to stop me and
speak to me, I tossed my head indig
nantly and almost ran.
"As I reached Tiffany's panting and
angry, I saw my husband afar off, and
as lie approached me I noticed him
stale also, then grin and then burst
"What do you mean?' said I angrily.
"'What's that tucked under your
chin?' he spluttered as well as he could
"I put my hand up to my throat and
pulled away a horria little table nap
kin, not particularly clean, with a vul
gar red border arouml it and with the
name 'Centennial Restaurant' stamped
on it in big black letters." N. Y.
There is a scientific person in Eng
land just at present who apparently
spends his whole time in hanging new
ly born infants to a branch of a tree;
or rather it is the infants who hang
themselves, in consequence of the
scientific person's encouragement and
advice. The branch is put in an in
fant hands, and is then lifted into the
air, when it is found that the infant
will retain its hold and remain sus
pended by its hands for full- two min
utes. The object of this performance
is to show that man is descended from
the monkey. It is the scientific per
son's opinion that if an infant instinc
tively hangs by its hands from a
branch of a tree it is because it has in
herited a fondness for that athletic
sport from its simian ancestors.
This is all very well; but when the
scientific person's practices come to
the ears of the mothers of the infants
with whom the experiments have been
made it is probable that he will some
what change his opinion as to the de
scent of man and will adopt the view
that man has been developed, on his
mother's side, from a thrashing ma
chine of complicated construction and
tremendous strength. JV. I". Herald.
General Butler's Shrewdness.
It is said that the veteran lawyer,
General Butler, formerly owned a
large mastiff, who became famous for
continued depredations on various
butcher carts as they passed through
the streets of Lowell on their morning
rounds. The dog was so ferocious that
none dare attack it, so for a time he
was quite master of the situation.
Finally one victim decided to approach
the ge'neral on the subject, so one
morning, accosting him on the street,
he said: "General' Butler, if a man's
dog steals meat from mv butcher cart
what would you do?"' "Why," said the
lawyer, "I should make him pay for
it."" "Very well," continued the
butcher, "your dog has stolen $2.50
worth of meat from my cart and I want
vou to pay for it." "Certainly," said
General Butler, "but I shall have to
charge you $0 for professional advice."
It is said the case was not pressed.
