What has become of our old friends
HelloYeiser and D. Clem Deaver they
are greatly missed in political circles.
Fusion will not fuse without the
warm presence of the two statesmen.
The original apotted cow called

ho was a chattel mortgage shark,
should bo hunted up and purchased
for Poyntor as a consolation prize after
The republican ticket in this county
is certain of a triumphant electiou
November 8. It has everything to
recommend it, cleai men representing
principles that have been testod and
found correct and of material benefit
to every good citizen.
Jesse Root is making friends
wherever he goes. If every voter
knew how able and conscientious a
lawyer ho really is, his majority in
the county would be over 2,000. He is
the leader among the younger men at
the bar in this county, and if the peo
ple want a strong, fearless prosecutor
they will vote for Mr. Root.
Wheat has been behaving badly for
some time. With no famine abroad,
it has been gradually increasing in
price right on the eve of olection. The
fusion farmers have about concluded
not to raise anymore of the hated stuff
since it got a divorce from silver and
made them so much trouble. Wheat
ia certainly no friend of the fusion
The crime of '73 has been ecliosed
by the McCreary banking bill accord

clones and grasshoppers are dwarfed
into insignificance in comparison
with this lately discovered monster of
iniquity. Mr. Williams of "Bosting,
the discoverer, is still at large, and
may find something else before tne

Mb. Dittmar, the candidate for
float representative for Cass aud Otoe
counties, is a business man in Nebraska
C.ty where he stands high as a man of
business integrity and good judgment
He possesses all the qualification
necessary to make a good representa
tive. Don't fail to place an X after
Mrj Dittmar's name. By so doing you
will have voted for a good capable
man. Weeeping Water Republican.
EVEUY vote in favor of the fusion
ticket is a vote against McKinley and
the administration, which has re
stored confidence and set the wheels
of industry running. If the people
appreciate bettered conditions and
want them continued they will vote
for the republican candidates, if they
don't want good times of course they

to smirch Judj; Itewell in the Dorgan
stone contract deal because it appears
that Dorgan paid loo much for some
of tho atone ho purchased. The facts
lira that ho refused to accept anything
but a certain l. dge of uniform thick
ness which was covered by over 15
leet of othor stone and earth, and
Newell & Atwood did not get even a
fair price for the stone. Their trans
action was fair and honorable in every
way, and a partisan board of investi
gation failed to convict them of a sin
gle indication of dishonesty. If Newell
was not honest with his dealings with
the state, he hhs been with erery
ona e'ie, then the pop officials who
ware investigating were less honora
ble in failing to prosecute. It is all a
dirty attempt, fathered by .lohn Da-
vies and his side partner, in an effort
to defeat the republican ticket, but
tiiev will lack a "rood manv votes of
Till", fusionits are happy, for they
have found a new lme It is an un-
suntf song, an tincn-'C'ed enactment,
nnh;tehed chicle, an unborn child
of tho republican par'y. and they r.re
brandishing their tongues at a won
dei ful rate and a o trying to sc;ue
the voters in to conniption tits. J hev
have hung out danger signals, they
are shouting through megaphones,
they are beating their tomtoms and
sounding their hewgags. Something
awful is about to be doee and the waj
to prevent it is to elect a democratic
congress. The roar which the "for
lorn hope" is making about this bill
will turn out liko the bov who cried
"wolf" so often whon there were no
wolves that no one heeded his cries.
Democratic mare s nests are too com-
mon, and the intelligent voter will
not be scared by prophesies from
prophets who have proven false so
WniLE we thought the silver ls.ue
ou?ht to be dead, vet we raver be
lieved it was really defunct until re
cently. The popocrats have concluded
to add it to their extensive cemetery
of de A issues and buried hopes, and
from this time on the McCleary bank
ing bill is to bo held up as the hide
ous nicrhtmaro that would ruin the
countrv. The fusionists are in hard
pnes to find somothing really worth
ickiujr about, but every cross roads
yelpar has received instructions, and
s out gunning for the banking bill,
which is no more a republican meas
ure than it is democratic, as not a sin
gle convention has endorsed it.
All commercial authorities point to
a much greater demand in Europe for
American food products. Nearly all
Europe wants our wheat, when a very
slight prospect for war was present.
England became almost spasmotic in
her effort to ensure her food supply. It
is not enough that we have the wheat.
we should be in a position that we
would ba enabled to carrv that wheat
across the mill pond, as our silver
tongued orator would say, without the
aid or consent of any nation on earth
We, as a nation, are large enough to
have a merchant marine adequate to
carry the commerce which we do with

Epoar Howard has been grossly
imposed upon by being too confiding,
He accepted the statement a3 true,
made by the fusion, state officers, that
no butterine had been purchased for
state institutions sinoe they oume into

of many tons when they said that, be

Whither are we drifting? Fremont
Billy Bryan used to have much to
sav about God hating a coward, but
when he was invited two week ago to
appear before the war investigation
commission he flunked and refused to
give uv tettimony. This would have
thrown the World-Herald into a spasm
if a republican officer of prominence
had declined to tell what he knew,
tho man would have been branded
as tho biggest coward of the age.
With Bryan its d fferent, you know.

The trade of the country

Nobody is wailing to kuow how the
Tariff will be adjusted or growling
over new schedules of doubiul moan
ing. No leading industry is paralyzed
by uncertainty. It appears to us that
a general review of the Tariff history
of the last thirty ye;;rs will show that
the present law is more generally
approved than the war Thrill or the
Tariff of 1883. Surely the present
campaign is very different from that

George Tred Williams, a sort of
masculine goose from Massachusetts,
came to Nebraska to help along the
fusion cause, and has succeeded in
makinsr it and himself ridiculous.
Even the pops are humiliated by the
silly remarks he made at Lincoln, and
the republicans are smiling largely.
