Tde Journal takes no glory to it self for yesterday's victory against ilif efforts of the two republican organ-. It simply voiced the popular will and did a little toward making that will effective. The victory of II. X. Dovey for dele gate to St. Louis seems assured. This is a distinct triumph for Polk over the Chapman-Ne well-Davies combine ami gives Cass county an honor that the combine would have thrown away, air. Dovey is a prominent young re publican who deserves bis coming victory, and whose selection will give satisfaction to all people, regardless of party. The joke of the city campaign in on both the News and Mr. Chapman's mouth-piece, the little Tribune. While their campaign mud batteries have been leveled at C. W. Sherman, and The Journal under his management, that gentleman has been keeping per fectly quiet, enjoying the fun, never saying a word or writing an article, but permitting other hands to do the work, which they have done so well as to set both the organs of the g. o. p wild with rage. Mr. Sherman admits that he is not in the present race for mayor, and, to be honest, he don't think Mr. Newell is in it seriously. He says be has withstood a good deal of abuse before now, and he can stand some more of it from the same sources So he hopes the boys will pelt away. It won't hurt him any, and if it af fords them any satisfaction he is wil ling to let them throw all the mud they can stand.

The several counties shall be en titled to representation as follows: Caas 21 Johnion 13 Lancaster 46 Nemaha 10 Otoe 20 Pawnee s Richardson 20 Total.: 138 I The electors of this city Tuesdav decreed a change in the administration of city affairs. This was in direct line with the predictions of The Journal. Ten days ago this paper took up the cause of exposing the hypocrisy and shams of the so-called "reform" ad ministration. Ten days ago it began its appeals to the voters to return to their senses, and elect a set of city otli- cials who would be only what they said they would be and nothing more good officials. The appeals of The Journal have borne fruit. The result on mayor is, iii itself, a suflicient vindication of ev ery charge presented in these columns. When the people chose John A . Gutsche to succeed Maor Newell they acted wisely aud well. Mr.Gutsohe was The Journal's, candidate, not because of the fact that he was on the democratic ticket alone, but becaie Uv repiesented the correct principles of municipal government. Under his ad ministration there will be no hnm "reform." Whenever genuine reform is needed, it will be had, but the right of ever man to live and enjoy life will be re spected. There will be no abuse of the law. There will be no reduction of the wage scale. There will be a quali tied and competent police force ami every man will receive fair and courte ous treatment from him.. This program is democratic in its entirety and will be carried out. In choosing Henry It. Geriug to ad minister the city finances for two years the people have again acted upon Til Journal's advice. Mr. Geriug won his election over a most spirited fight. It is no discredit to Mr. I'm uh that he was defeated. He made a magni-' ficent,albeit an unscrupulous fight, and wa3 defeated because the people be lieved Mr. Gering to be betterquahlied and more capable to fill the position. Mr. Uuruh's bond record campaign militated much against his chances of success and the people considered that a man who had no strong er a record than that was not a man for public position. That the people's judgment is not partisan is shown by the (act that U C.Kerr was chosen clerk over the popu iar, young Frarik Green. It was t Mr. Green's detriment that he lacked ac quaintance among the voters, lie would have made a capable, trust worthy ofllcial,but Mr. Kerr's extended acquaintance enabled him to escape the general defeat. M. Archer's election was largely due to the fact that he has been tried and found true. The people desired to have the best men in wllice and Judge Arch er's record has proven him to be that man. The choice of Messrs. Davis and Travis as members of the school boaid was timely . The Journal desired to see Mr. Wilkinson elected, but as in Mr. Green's case, his lack of extends acquaintance had much to do with the result. Mr. Davis has been upon the board and seems to have satisfied the people. Mr. Travis will make an ear nest, conscientious officer and will act for the best interests of the city and the schools. I Mike Mauzy's election was generally conceded, even by republicans, before election. It is needless to state that Mr. Mauzy will give complete satisfac tion to the people of the city and the ward. He will be no hypocrite or fraud but plain Mike Mauzy, a friend of the people, and an honest, sturdy representative of good government. Geo. Heisel was chosen over John F. Hinsbaw in the second ward, because he was considered the proper man for the place. Mr. Hinshaw had made a clean, honorable record and put up a good fight for re-election. His sue cessor was elected upon the ground of nersonal DODularitv and because he a a a was considered fully qualified for the position. This is correct. George Heisel will make an excellent council man and will meet the wants of his ward and the city in every respect. Councilman Steimker went down in defeat because the people were tired of his domineering ways and disgusted with his antics in the council chamber. He never merited election, but was al ways in line for defeat. Dr. Cummins' overwhelming majority bespeaks well for the intelligence of the voters of that ward and indicates that good busi ness principles have resumed sway iu the big third. Dr. Cummins may well feel proud of his victory over "Doll- rags," it was an excellent testimonial of the high regard in which Dr. Cum mins is held and thoroughly, vindicates The Journal's position. John P.Sattler's victory in the fourth is well merited. It is a complete knock-out for the gentlemen who made it their business to slander Mr. Sattler by charges of drunkness and inatten tion to business. The people will not believe slander and have so testified. John P. Sattler made a good record and he stands vindicated. In the fiftb,the expected fight against Wm. Slater tailed to materialize. Nothing could be said against Mr. Slater's record. It was a whole cam paign in itself aud its voice was heard yesterday. Upon the whole The Journal feels proud. It is proud of the voters of Plattsmouth city. They acted in har mony. While the men elected are as a rule democrats, yet. the ballots fell from bands republican as well as dem ocrat and in the end it was the voice of the DeoDle. A voice terrible in its knows that leather boots can be made power the voice that raises hopes and j water proof in the following way consent, lie now holds one office and an average hand at whist. That's enough. Unless ou want him adver tised to the world as a hor . please oon't elect him to another official position." Most persons are dependent upon rubber overshoes to keep their feet dry in wet weather. But one who has practiced it for a number ot years speaking, crushes out ambitious high in their expectations, but doomed to lasting defeat. So the victory is the victory of the people. PERSONAL, POLITICAL AND PERTINENT. Maxey Cobb, county treasurer of Lancaster county, committed suicide Thursday, near Lincoln, by taking poison. A shortage of some $36,000 in his accounts is supposed to have preyed upon his mind to such an ex tent that he was unable to face the disgrace and took his own life. He was a son of Judge Amassa Cobb. If a woman hasn't a husband, she ets a cat or a dog, anything, so it is something she can worry about lor staying out nights. Atchison Globe. In a certain Knox county school the children took to spoiling each other's dinner by putting cayenne pepper in the pails. The other dav a little girl discovered a white powder on her pie and found upon tastine it t hat it was very bitter. She gave the pie to a dog, and the beast died a few minutes aft erwards. It was strychniue. beward Blade. The Sarpy county authorities have offered a reward of $500' for the cap ture of Vic McCarty, the outlaw. Melt together equal parts of castor oil, kerosene and lard and while it is still warm rub the mixture all over a pair of new boots, both upper and soles.

Give another dressing with this mixture about once in three or four months. Leather is not only made water-proof in this way but be comes very soft and pliable. In a suburban town of New York one day last week two fire department horses, a pair of iron grays, were "bor rowed" for a pouple of hours to haul a moving van loaded with household goods. Among the goods was an alarm clock. During the moving the. clock, jarred by the jolting of the truck, started to ring. The horses, thinking it was the fire alarm, started off at a gallop, increasing their speed at every stride, while the alarm clock raug on merrily, liy a strange coincidence, a fire engine on its way to a fire dashed by. The horses attached to the truck dashed after the engine, and thedriver was unable to stop them until the scene of the fire was reached. Even then it was with great difficulty that the nurses could be driven away from the conflagration. FOR THE UEXT THIRTY DAY at j. PEA Parlor Suites.

She is now four yeai sold, but has not yet strength enouch to walk. When a sharp battle takes place within twelve miles of Havana, and the dispatches state that "the details are meager," the inference is that the Spanish troops were roughly handled and have no desire to go into par ticulars.
