at Once and Take Advantage of
STRODE VS. BLAINE.
Hon. J. B. Strode has been speaking
to people all over the first district in
favor of a re-enactment of a high pro
tective tariff. In defending his posi
tion he ha? stated as an historic fact
that high tariffs have invariably
brought prosperity to the people and
that low tariffs just as invariably
brought distress and national disaster.
That Mr. Strode misstated history in
every particular we tirmly believe, and
when he set out to establish a fact
every logician knows that his story
must be like the links of a chain it
must hold in its entirety, in every link,
or it must fall to pieces. In other
words, if a low tariff did not cause bard
times and depression, but the contrary,
on any one period of its trial, Mr.
Strode'a argument falls to the ground.
Going into particulars, he stated that
there was hard times caused by the
Walker tariff of 1846. Now, that there
was during 1S57 a period of hard times
is true, but history agrees that that
was caused by speculation and the
consequent failure of the Ohio Trust
Co., and a whole lot of wild-cat banks
in the west, and not to the tariff. But
let us compare Mr. Strode's statement
with that ef the great republican poli
tician, James G. Blaine. In bis
"Twenty Years in Congress," Mr.
Biaiue Bays, on page 196:
"Tae Whig victory of 1846 was not
sufficiently decisive to warrant any at
tempt, even bad there been desire, to
change the tariff. Gen. Taylor had
been elected without subscribing to a
platform or pledging himselt to a
specific measure, and he was therefore
in a position to resist and reject ap
peals of the ordinary partisan char
acter. Moreover, the tariff of 1846
was yielding abundant revenue, and
the business ot the country was in a
nourishing condition at the time his
administration was organized. Money
became yery abundant after the year
1849; large enterprises were under
taken, speculation was prevalent, and
for a considerable period the prosperity
of the country was general and appar
"After 1852 the democrats had al
most undisputed control of the govern
ment, and had gradually become a free
trade party. The principles embodied
in the tariff of 1846 seemed for the
time to be so entirely vindicated and
approved that resistance to it ceased
not only among the people but among
the protective economists, and even
among the manufacturers to a large
extent. So general was this acquies
cence that in 1856 a protective tariff
was not suggested or even hinted by
any one of the three parties which pre
sented presidential candidates."
Any one who heard Mr. Strode will
recognize the direct contradiction be
tween his fraudulent history and the
truth, as given by Mr. Blaine. Mr.
Strode should give other reasons for
favoring the rich at the expense of the
BUT A GENUINE CLOSING-OUT
IS THIS A FREK COUNTRY?
The following brief but suggestive
communication was taken from the
Omaha Itee, and we have no doubt that
any person who questions the authen
ticity of the same can have an oppor
tunity, on applying at the cilice of that
paper, to see the original, which reads
Paavnek City, Oct. 2. To the Edi
tor of the Bee: A few days ago a gen
tleman of this city took a trip to the
western part of the state via the Bur
lington road. While on the train out
near Hastings he asked the newsboy for
a copy of the Bee. The newsboy smil
ingly replied that as the Bee was not a
B. & M. paper he was not allowed to
handle it,therefore could not accommo
date him, but carried the State Jour
nal. The gentleman bought no daily
paper until he reached Hastings, where
he bought a Bee.
The result of this is that there will
be one more vote for Holcomb Novem
ber 6. He was and is a strong republi
can, but is convinced that the B. & M.
road, and not Majors, is running for
governor of Nebraska. S. E. W.
Jacob P. Falter, the democratic
candidate for members of the board of
commissioners, is thirty-four years old,
and has resided in Cass county most of
his life. The charge is brought against
him that he is too young for a place on
the board. The above fact ought to
settle that charge. As an accountant
he has had Rome experience, having
been secretary of an insurance com
pany for five years. lie is a man of
reliability and good qualifications, and
is Bot a narrow partizan.
John M. TnuusTox is the republi
can candidate for the United States
senate. The leaders of the republican
party want him to go to the senate, so
does the Union Pacific railroad com
pany. The principal reason for their
great desire to put Thurston in the
senate is because the Union Pacific's
mortgage to the government becomes
due next year, and Mr. Thurston, as
attorney of that company, would be of
great service in the senate in securing
a renewal of the mortgage for fifty
The fusion of the democrats and
populists on the state ticket has thrown
the republicans into a rage of disap
pointment akin to despair. And well
they may be for they are beaten today.
They have been howling calamity for
years about the dire disaster to come
upon the state in case the populists
were to elect their ticket until it has
become old and hackneyed aud worn

t out. Populists may be extremists in
t some particulars, but they are also
j citizenslikedemocratsand republicans,
and there is no more danger to be ap
prehended from them than any other
citizens, and the republicans know it,
but use this as their only campaign
thunder, to cover up the remembcrance
by the people of the robberies they
have been committing and for which
some of their officials were impeached
by the legislature. The republicans
seemingly forgot that even now the
state is trying to secure through the
courts $206,000 which a republican
state treasurer, in connection with
Charley Mosher, has pluudered from
its treasury. Isn't it time this calamity
howl was stopped?
One singular fact was demonstrated
by the census of 1890 that there was
quite a sensible decrease in rural popu
lation, while the town and city popula
tion largely increased. This fact is
visible even in portions of Cass
county. For instance, there was a de
crease in the population of Greenwood
precinct of 111 in the ten years. South
Bend precinct, Louisville precinct and
Rock Bluffs precinct also show a con
siderable decrease although in the
case of Louisville the village shows an
increase over the census of 1880.
Democrats of Cass county should
not forget to vote for George Leidigh
for float representative, although his
name appears as a populist. He is a
free silver democrat, while Sinclair,
whose name appears as the democratic
nominee, was not regularly nominated,
but was put on through a fraudulent
Why should the election of Holcomb
injure Nebraska's credit ? Holcomb is
admitted by all to he an honest man;
Majors is generally believed not to be
an honest man. Would the election of
a dishonest governor make the credit
of Nebraska better than it an honest
governor was elected ? Cedar Rapids
The Nebraska City News is urging
democrats to vote for Phelps D. Stur
devant for governor. No such man is
a candidate. The News, therefore,
might just as well come out boldly and
electioneer for Majors, instead of
biding behind the bush.
If you wish to have the national
government extend the U. P. loan
for 99 years, vote for men who are
identified with the corporation inter
ests and therefore help elect the
general attorney of the Union Pacific
to a seat in the United States senate.

The false doctrines of McKinleyism
has made New England and the east
ern states rich at the expense of the
west as is proven by the census. The
west got the population and the east
the profits. With the barriers of high
protection thrown down the "omni
vorous w:st" would soon have the ad
Vantage of the sordid, phlegmatic east.
The process has begun already by the
cheapening of products under the
new tariff bill. Let the good work go
on and the people will soon realize it.
If there is a reversal of the judgment
this fall in the election of the next
congress, it will be only a temporary
check of the onward wave of tariff re
form which, like all genuine revolu
tions, never can jjo backward.
David McCaio, who is on the ticket
for representative, has been a resident
of the county for a quarter of a cen
tury. He is of Scotch parents, is a
farmer and resides between Wabash
and Elmwood. For years he has been
a leader among his neighbors in push
ing enterprises of common interest,and
is known as a man of strict honesty and
steadfastness of purpose. If elected to
the legislature he could be depended on
to act in behalf of the people and for
their true interests.
