J. R. SOUTHERLAND,
Cheaper and better process has
not made steel rails cheaper in
England than here. The only
thing that has made the difference
is the price paid for the labor.
IN answer to the Journal's ques
tion about cheaper clothing in
England than in America, Mr. Horr
answered that question last Mon
day night from the platform.
The Journal asks this question:
"If ealt has gone down in price here,
why didn't Mr. Horr explain that it
has gone down much faster and
lower in other lands than ours?"
As Mr. Horr is gone we will answer
the question. Because it has not.
The Plattsmouth Journa 1 reported
Mr. Horis speech on one page with
out comment, and on another page
tries to make fun of him and denies
everything Mr. Horr said, without
trying to prove the statements false,
and then claims to have published
a fair accout. The Journal does not
know the first principle of fairness.
WHEN Stevenson, the democratic
nominee for vice-president,"- arrived
in New York City last Monday he
took a suite of rooms in the Hoff
man House and prepared himself
to receive Tammany with open
arms, lie remainea in me noiei an
day and kept his rooms open until
midnight, but not one of the mag
nates appeared to greet him.
THE investigation of the Home
stead strike answers all of Brother
Sherman's questions. It shows
that the wages paid the men, both
skilled and unskilled labor, aver
aged $21i5 per week per man.
Where is the judge or business
man in this part of the country that
makes more than that? we
will bet a sack of peanuts that the
editor of the Journal does not make
that much, and we know that there
is not a mill in the Old worhl that
pays anywhere near that amount to
The Journal, in commenting on
Mr. Horr's speech, said that Amer
ican-made goods were greatl3r re
duced in price during the free trade
period from 1840 to 18(50, and claims
tnat the cheapening process would
have gone on just the same, regu
lated by the legitimate law of sup
ply and demand. No, Brother
Sherman, they would not have been
cheaper, for the simple reason that
a very few goods would have been
made on this side of the ocean, and
the Yankee inventor would never
have got his work in, because there
would have been no inducement
for him to do so. What machinery
there was would have been on the
other eide of the ocean while he
was on this side. The inventive
genius only invents when he is
working or sees the machinery at
work, and by his watching it he
sees where he can improve it.
A HORRIBLE DISCLOSURE.
Is there ever justification in re
calling men's evil acts and placing
the wrongdoer in the pillory of
Certainly, when the wretch mani
fests no regret or repentance for
his crime, and by his subsequent
conduct shows that he glories in
what he has done.
Grover Cleveland's running mate,
Adlai E. Stevenson, has been de
nounced time and again as a relic
of the organization known as the
Knights of the Golden Circle, com
posed of the copperhead elements
of the democratic party during the
war. He has never attempted to
deny the charge, nor has he by any
subsequent act indicated that he
felt regret or shame for having
been thus associated.
Nor does this fact render Mr.
Stevenson in the least degree dis
tasteful to the democratic party or
to Mr. Cleveland. Nor did Mr.
Cleveland, himself, do anything
during the war to establish that he
was not heartily in sympathy with
this same traitorous organization.
In short, neither of these men did a
single act before, during or since
the war to entitle him to the con
sideration of patriotic men.
But the terrible charge hurled
against Mr. Stevenson by Mr. J. M.
Walker of Ohiowa, Neb., discloses
the tail of the democratic ticket to
be as loathsome a reptile as ever
creeped. And the facts in the case
are too circumstantially set forth
to permit the possibility of a doubt
that the statement is true.
Mr. Walker is adjutant of Hunter
Post, No. 122, G. A. R., Ohiowa. The
Chaplain of that post is Philip Jen
kins, late a lieutenant of Company
C, Seventy-seventh Illinois Volun
On the 10th of January, 18G3, at the
battle of Arkansas Post, otherwise
Fort Hindman, Lieutenant Jenkins
greatly distinguished himself and
showed his devotion to his coun
try by seizing the regimental colors
from the hands of the color, bearer,
John S. Hornfaker, who fell severly
wounded while the regiment was
charging the fort, and bearing them
through the terrific fire during the
remainder of the engagement, and
until the regiement entered the ene
my's works. Subsequently Lieuten
ant Jenkins became seriously ill,
and in the month of April his
colonel sent him home as the only
expedient to save his life. Too ill to
go alone, his colored cook accompa
nied him. Now, this same Lieuten
ant Philip Jenkins is the man that
this Adlai Stevenson arrested and
prosecuted in Illinois during the
war for bringing this colored man
into that state about April, 18G3. He
secured his conviction and had him
sentenced to jail. But the boys
said, "Don't you put him in that
jail, or there will not be a brick left
And this same Adlai Stevenson is
the man that the democrats have
the brazen effrontery to ask old
soldiers to vote for, for vice presi
dent, and no one can vote for the
presidential electors on the demo
cratic ticket without voting for him,
Now, who is the Union veteran

base as to do it? Kearney Hub.
