THE PARTY CAN STAND A CON
TEST. Senator Quay, in saying, as he
has just said in a newspaper inter
view, that "a forced nomination of
any one would be unfortunate'
shows a nervousness regarding the
situation which is altogether un
warranted. According to this no
tion a contest in the Minneapolis
convention wo.uld be hurtful to the
part-. The nomination must be
practically unanimous, or at least
must be conferred on the first bal
lot, to be of much service. This is
a theory which was never promi
nently suggested on either side in
the past, and which will not com
mand ready assent now. It might
be well, of course, to settle the
question of the nomination without
a fight. Contests are apt to pro
voke ill feeling between the rival
aspirants and their friends, and
sometimes they produce feuds
which endure for years, and which
hamper the party in which they ex
ist. Such results, though, come
seldom. Rivalries subside after
the convention, and, in most cases,
the jealousies and bitternesses en
gendered, so far as regards their
active manifestation, die out before
the campaign is ended, or, at any
rate, are confined to the unsuccess
ful aspirants themselves, and do not
affect their friends. -The esprit de
corps which exists in both the
great parties prevents any extensive
-'. prolonged sulking among the
."rated men and their followers.
. excitement of the canvass and
tin- remembrance of former battles
stir the blood and make the rank
and file on each side eager for vic
tory. For these reasons contests in
national conventions seldom reduce
a party's strength at the polls.
It will be conceded, of course, that
Mr. Blaine could not afford to take
the nomination, providing he were
willing to take it in any contingen
cy, unless it came to him without a
struggle. His position is peculiar
in this respect. He is the foremost
in his party, he once led the party
to defeat, and he has repeatedly dis
claimed any further aspirations to
ward the nomination. Nothing
short of a spontaneous, overwhelm
ing and virtually unanimous de
mand from his compatriots for his
candidacy would justify him in ac
cepting it. None of the other men,
however, whose names have been
coupled with the nomination, not
even Gen. Harrison, are under any
such embarrassment. The presi
dent could take the nomination after
two or three ballots without any
material sacrifice of dignity or pres
tige. It is true the renotnination of
Jackson and Grant was unanimous,
but either of these men would un
doubtedly have accepted the can
didacy if it were gained by them as
the result of a struggle. Lincoln's
second nomination came to him on
the first ballot, but not by the unan
imous voice of the convention, as
the Missouri delegation voted for
Grant. A contest in the convention
would not have hurt any of these
men at the polls to any. perceptible
degTee. Nor would Harrison be in
jured if he were compelled to make
a struggle to regain the prize, j
Neither Sherman nor McKinley
would suffer in any way in the esti
mation of the party by, the accept
ance of an honor which part of the
members of the convention pre
ferred to give to somebody else.
Therefore, the party is not at all
alarmed at the propects that a con
test may take place in Minneapolis.
The longest and most excitiug
struggle which ever occurred in a i
republican national assemblage
took place in 1SS0, in which thirtj--six
ballots were taken, but Garfield,
the candidate, was triumphantly
elected. Globe Democrat.
THE Atlanta Constitution is dis
couraged, and closes a longeditori-
al on the democratic situation with
'We do not have the faintest hope
that Mr. Cleveland can carry the
country. He can not carry his own
state, aud we are firmly convinced
that his nomination will divide the
solid south." If it will do this, Mr.
Cleveland should be nominated.
He could afford defeat for the sake
of knowing that he had broken up
the fraudulently solid south, which
i a disgrace to the country. It is
solid only by corruption and bull
dozing, and democrats even in the
south no longer defend it as honest.
They simply justify it on the
ground that the end justifies the
means. Inter Ocean.
The dedication of the new court
house evidently threw Brother Race
of the Weeping Water Eagle into a
fit, as the Eagle rose on high this
week with a scream and a flapping
of wings which was intended to
cause the court house to tumble in
to the Big Muddy and be swallowed
up by the raging torrents. But it
did not even shake the walls there
of, and the building still stands, so
that when Brother Race comes over
to the county seat he can walk into
one of the county offices in the
building, sit down in a chair, take
off his hat and cool his over-heated

Blaine wrote to Col. Clarkson as fol
lows: I am not a candidate for the pres
idency, and my name will not po be

tion for the nomination. I make
this announcement in due season.
There is no evidence that Mr.
Blaine has changed his mind since
writing the above. On the contrarj',

mate friends that he still adheres
to his determination not to be a

The Burlington & Missouri River
railroad has prepared and has now
ready for distribution a new hand
book, treating of the opportun ties
which NebrasKa, nortwestern K n
sas and eastern Colorado offer to
farmers, business men and inves
tors. This book has been gotten out for
the information of eastern people,
particularly those who have friend?
west of the Missouri; it is written in
pleasant, easily understood style,
by one who thoroughly knows his
subject, and is confidently recom
mended as likely to stimulate im
migration to a very considerable ex
tent. It pictures Nebraska and those
portions of Kdusas and Colorado
adjacent to it, not as they might be,
but as they are.
It is thought that the best method
of distributing these hand books is
as follows: Parties in Nebraska,
Kansas and Colorado, having
friends in the east who are likely to
be interested in such literature as
this, are invited to send the names
aud addresses of these latter to Mr.
1. Francis, Gen'l Passenger and
Ticket Agent, Burlington Route,
Omaha, Neb., who will take pleasure
in forwarding, postpaid, to such ad
dresses as many copies as desired.
