It is amusing to hear Sherman
squell because the Weeping Water

of the two tickets that they could

Bryan's friends find very little

The Atchison Globe has this idea

THE republicans can win without
Indiana if they get New York, and
they can win without New York if
they get Indiana. They are almost
absolutely certain to get one of
those states, and chances are very
good to get both.
The Van Wyck-Brynn tie-up was
given away by J. B. Routine, an al
liance agitator, who is one of Van
Wyck's lieutenants. The whole
thing was given away while he was

who he supposed were indepen

The Journal yesterday said that
that County Attorney Travis would
make a better prosecutor if he were
re-elected than ever. The Hekali
sincerely hopes bo, if by a chance
he should be elected this fall, but,
then, there is no fear about that.
Aa a prosecutor Mr. Travis is a suc
cess in favor of the criminal. At
the last term of the district court he
only succeeded in one conviction
and in that case a plea of guilty

It has remained for the IMatts

only discoverer of Field boodle
in the present campaign. Other
democratic papers in the district
either lack the canine instinct of
smelling or else they have too much
good sense to raise a cry that they
know none will believe. In Lin

such idle vaporings. A great many
of them know individually how un
successful they have been in the
past in trying to find noodle whn
Judge Field has been a candidate
for office. The democrats over the
district are not caring to call atten
tion to the munitions of war that
Mr. Bryan seems to have at his
disposal by making charges
against Judge Field. Mr. Bryan is
seuding thousands of documents
over the district, in value to hinr of
hundreds of dollars, and the demo
cratic congressional committee is
making a direct personal fight to
retain Mr. Hryan on their roll of
membership. As n builder of post
office buildings on paper while vot
ing money to every appropriation
asked for by the southern democ
racy, he is too valuable to lose
without financial effort on their
part. When the southern brigadiers
wanted to slap the Russian govern
ment in the face 'because it pre
vented England from becoming an
ally of the confederacy in the days
of the sixties, they found Mr. Hryan
a willing tool and assistant in re
fusing to transport food contrib
uted by the people of Nebraska in
aid of the famine sufferers. TliK
HKKALl) suggests to its boodle
searching contemporary that he de
sist for a season braying at the
moon and pass his hat in the direc
tion of the democrat ic congressional
committee. This office will assist
him in his appeal by furnishing
him a printed placard "I am blind"
that he can hang around his well
developed neck when he turns his
sightless eyes in the direction of
the democratic fountain from which
all blessings flow.
TllE Journal last evening claimed
to possess a good deal of valuable
information. For the benefit ot
Sherman, Till-: IlEKALO states that
it has not now, nor has it ever asked
one cent of Mr. TelTt, nor has he
ever given The llKkWl.Hany money.
The IIi:h'AM supports Mr. Tcfft be
cause he is a republican, a gentle
man, and he stands before the peo
ple with an unimpeachable char
acter; because he is forCass county
first, last and all the time; because
he is better qualified to represent
the interests of Cass county than
either of his opponents and because
he is a friend of the farmer, the
merchant and the laboring man.
Shkkm vx says "by some hook or
crook Haldenian has secured the
endorsement of both independent
organs." Not at all, Brother Sher
man, both editors of the papers re
ferred to are personally acquainted
with Mr. Haldenian and Mr. Travis
it ixl they know that Mr. Ilaldeman
is the best lawyer of the two and
is thereby better qualified for the
position of county attorney.

This shows that Hill has a "pull"
with his party in his state yet. Un
happily for the anti-snappers, the
"pull" is going to be used largely
against Cleveland.
One of the peculiarities of the
Kansas campaign is the fact that
the self-respecting democrats are
co-operating with the republicans
in the work of redeeming the state
from the shameful situation in
which it has been placed by the

J. II. IlALIEMAX will be Cass
county's next attorney as sure as
the 8th day of next November rolls
around. He is the best man of the

to Harrison in 1888 with the belief

take some action as it is a matter of
vital importance to Plattsmoth.
THE south is solid for the demo
cratic party, as usual; but the elec

which is securely republican.
A VOTE for Bryan means a
vote for jwildcat currency. A vote
for Field means a vote for a dollar

The little medal of American tin
plate entitled "Harrison R id and
Protection, 1892." had been largely
used for distribution among school
children of the city of New York
until last week, when the free trade
democratic board of education of
that city became greatly alarmed
lest some of the democratic part nis
of the children should learn
through the little ones of the bene
fits of the protective policy. Quick
ly the police board ordered that
thisrflistribution, which was strictly
within the law, should be stopped
and a representative of the league
distributing medals to the school
children after they had left the
school room and were on their way
home, was ordered to stop under
penalty of arrest.
We trust that every protection
newspaper in this country will let
its readers know of this attempt to
prevent the distribution of whole
some matter teaching' the prin
ciples of protection. As a result,
however, of the publicity in New
York City, the school children are
taking it into their own hands and
every day besiege the league
rooms for quantities of the tin plate
medals for distribution.
We grant that it may not be
pleasant for a democratic father to
have is child come home singing:
Protection's lutnner Kiuird our kind
From KiiKlnnd's (creed unit piiuper pity,
And when I play Great Hritian's htind.
Please take me (or a Illoomirift Jay.
and asking what it means, but this
is the very purpose of the distribu
tion. It is our idea that if the
children in the home can bring the
subject to the attention of New
York City will receive these medals,
notwithstanding the attempts of
the free trade oligarchy to prevent
The political crank who edits the
Journal may just as well under
stand first as last that he cannot
bulldoze Plattsmouth republicans
into either voting for Bryan or
Frank K. White by such hogwash
as last evening's Journal contained.
Senator Tefft is a gentleman, a re
publican, a clean business man and
he is going to represent Cass
county in the next legislature and
he will not have to boodle the Jour
nal to get there as Mr. White has
had to do in times past and as he
will have to do if he gets its sup
port this fall. The disposition of nn
irresponsible small bore editor of
the Journal class, is always to in
dulge in personal attacks on gen
tlemen they fancy they are politi
cally opposed to, and the republi
can candidates do not expect immu
nity this year from the Plattsmouth
Journal. The disgusting manner
in which the editor of the Journal
slobbered over Billy Bryan is
enough 'o drive every decent dem
ocrat in Cass county from his
(Bryan's) support and no better
evidence can be furnished those
who know the Journal's methods
in politics, than the pretended in
sanity over the democratic candi
date for congress, who is a railroad
lawyer of the most insignificant
calibre. Judge Field and Senator
TettTt will continue to come and
see Plattsmouth electors and will
receive their party's vote without
either having to UY it or the Jour
nal's influence or 8JLENCE.
Thefplitin the democratic party
of Tennessee is quite as serious as
that which exists in Texas says
the St. Louis Globe Democrat with
the different that the majority by
which it holds the state is not large
enough to stand much of a strain.
For several years past the republi
cans have been making steady
gains, and the people's party has
developed decided strength. mostly
at the expense of the democrats.
There are thrcn tickets in the field.
The regular democratic ticket is
headed by Chief Justice Turney as
a candidate for governor, his nomi
nation having been forced upon
the party against the wishes of the
farming and laboring classes.
Governor Buchanan is a candidate
for re-election on an independent
ticket that has been indorsed by
the people's party. The republi
cans are supporting George W.
Winstead, an able and popular
young lawyer, on a platform that
appeals to the intelligence and
and self-respect of all good citizens.
In Tennessee, as in Texas and
Missouri, there are thousands of
democrats who are dissatisfied with
the way in which state affairs have
been managed by their party, and
who believe that a change to re
publican rule would be beneficial.
They will vote for Winstead in pre
ference to either of the democratic
candidates, and there is reason to
believe that they may turn the
scale in his favor; indeed, it is
contended by shrewd judges of the
situation that he can be elected
without such assistance.
There is no way of estimating the
probable effect of the split upon
the vote of the state for president.
The contest for the governorship
absorbs attention to the practical
elusion of the National aspect of
ihe approaching election, so far, at
least, as the democrats are con
cerned. Turney and Buchanan are
writing a personal light, and their
r.-pective suppor -re are animated
iiy feelings of uim ual bitterne.-s.
J: is impossible , . ee how these
two hostile wing- flap together
in an effective sen.- r Cleveland.
The majority of ,. factions are
disposed to vote f .- i, no doubt,
but they are - aiore inter
ested in the nmm , "governor
that they are not 1. odnmuch
work for him. It in . ! . that they
will even conclud.- : ritice him
in the way of vote-.- , i.ig for the
benefit of the local lates. The
republicans are wi-i .vake to the
opportunity which is Uius presented ';
to place the state in the Harrison!
columns. They are not giving any
assurances that'such a result will
ensue, but they are laboring to
bring it about in an aggressive and
enthusiastic manner. The majority
that they have to overcome is less
than 20,000; and a gain as large as
they made in 188S over their vote of
1881 will be sufficient for the pur
pose, considering the division in
the democratic ranks and the
desertions to the people's party. In
short, there is a possibility that
one of the surprises of November
will be the redemption of Tennessee
from the blight and reproach of

The report which the New York
commissioner of labor, Mr. Peck,
made, showing that the McKinley '
tariff was a benefit to wage workers,
has not only withstood all attempts
to overthrow or discredit it, but it
has now been suplemented by a
statement, informal though it is,
but none the less significant, by
Governor Flower. The governor
seems to be a man of exceptional
courage. A few weeks ago he did
his duty in the Buffalo strike, and
again in the Fire Island quarantine
question, and when warned that he
might hurt himself or his party po
litically, showed the same disregard
of politics as the late William II.
Vanderbuilt did of the public. And
now he has been heard from as to
the effect of the tariff on the farm
ers of that state, bluntly declaring
that it has been a benefit to them.
Thus we have the two highest au
thorities in the state, both of them
democrats, telling the people of
New York that those two great
classes, the wage workers and the
farmers, are benefitted by the Mc
