The voters of the Third district will
make no mistake in electing George
Towle to tLe commissionerBhip. Mr.
Towle is a man eminently qualified by
both experience and ability to fill the
office, and is spoken of most highly by
republicans as well as democrats and
populists. He has made a thorough
canvass of the district, and the lecep
tion he has met with at the bands of
the electors givts Lim every reason to
believe that his majority will be a
It is a flittering tribute to the in
telligence and integrity of Fred Gorder
that, though he is a democrat, be has
on different occasions been elected
mayor of Weeping Water, which is an
overwhelmingly republican town. That
where he is Lest known he is most
highly esteemed, and that nearly every
one of hi? acquaintances is his friend,
lie will receive a large republican vote
In the west end, and if the democrats
and populists in the east end stand by
him, as they certainly should, bis ma
jority will be a record breaker.

The campaign is now practically at
a close, and The Joukxal desires to
call the attention of the voters of the
county to the manner in which it has
proven the absolute unfitness of Wni.
II. Newell to represent them in any
In the first place, it charged that.
Newell and his partner, through cou
nivancewlth the notoriously corrupt
IJillDorgau, robbed the people of Ne
braska of thousands and thousands of
dollars on that famous cell house deal.
This Newell denied, and The Jour
nal proved that it was true.
It charged that Newell was the ring
leader iu the conspiracy to plunder the
taxpayers of the county of t50
through the fako county fair aud that
he is one of the directors of the bo-
ciety. This Newell denieu am
Journal proved that it was true.
It charged that Newell, while mayor
of riattsinouth, knew that a genuine
finish prize fight was to take place
here and that he gave a gentleman a
ticket of admission to the same. His
chief of police was there, and though
the fight was so fierce that one of the-
contestants was killed it was allowed
to go on, and the county was compelled
to expend $1,500 in the trial of two
murder case. Newell denid that he
knew that it was to be a prize fight or
that he had a ticket and The Journal
proved his denial to be false.
The Journal charged that the
workmen at Newell s iCedar ureeK
quarries were compelled to go out on a
strike last June in order to get the
same wages for their labor that was
being paid iu adjoining quarries. This
was alio denied by Newell and proven
to be true by The Journal. In short
every charge made against the plugged
to size candidate has at first been de
nied by him and afterwaids proven by
TriE Journal to be absolutely true.
This being the case, it is impossible
to believe that the voters or Uass
county, the vast majority of whom
are honest men, will cast their ballots
for Mr. Newell. He has been shown
beyond the possibility of a doubt, to be
man in every manner unworthy of a
public trust one who will prostitute
the public interest to his own private
lii9t for gain one who, while chief
executive of a municipality and the
conservator of its peace, had not the
moral courage to insist upon the en
forcement of the criminal laws, and
one whose disregard for the working
classes is so great as to involve him in
wage controversies with his employees,
who must perforce strike in order to
obtain fair pay for their work.
This is William II. Newell, republi
can candidate for state senator. Do
you want such a man to make laws for
Tne News accuses The Journal
of making a "bitter, malignant and
untruthful campaign" against Mr.
Newell. The accusation is false.
When a man conies before the people
asking for political preferment, he
must stand upon his record. His
future course can only be judged by
the past. The voters have a right to
know what that past record is and
The Journal has merely done its
duty toward the electors of the county
in Hying Newell's record before them.
There has not been one untruthfal
charge made against him. AH Vave
been amply proven.
The Post takes The Journal to
task for stating that Pollard and
Toung voted against the stock yards
bill. This is just what The Jouknal
has been waiticz for, as it furnishes
an opportunity for showing these gen
tlemen and their attitude toward that
bill up in teir true light. It is true
that they did not actually vote against
the bill when it came tip for final pas
nage, they were too smooth for that,
but they antagonized it all the way
through until the final vote came, vot
ing and working against it from the
time of its introduction until it be
came plainly apparent that it could
not be killed, when they fell Into line
and gave it votes which, if they could
have been of any benefit to the other
Bide, would undoubtedly have been
cast that way. Do the people of Cass
county want such double-dealers to
represent them in the legislature
The Post seems to have funny ideas
as to the manner In which United
States senators are elected. In Thurs
day evening's i?sue the above men
tioned paper mentions the good qual
ities of Mr. Burkett, republican candi
date for congress, and says: "Know
ing this, his ability and fitness for the
office of congressman, and the oppor
tunity he will have for helping in the
election of a United States senator, al
republicans should give him loyal sup
port." Just how a congressman is
supposed to assist in the election of a
United States senator, The Journal
is at a loss to understand, and has in
vain sought information on the sub
ject from people who were supposed to
be well Informed. Some hesitancy
was felt about calling The Post down
on the matter, but this is about the
third time it has been sprung, and The
Journal could resist the temptation
worthy of the support of all conscien
tious electors. He is intelligent, hon
est and energetic and would make an
ideal representative and one who could
be relied upon to stand up for the in
terests of the people at all times and
under all circumstances. The popu
lists are giving their united support to
the democratic nominees let the dem
ocrats do the same by Mr. Rouse.
The taxpayers are Interested iu hav
ing iu the office of county attorney a
lawyer of recognized ability and one
who will look after their interests in a
conscientious and faithful manner.
Such a man is D. O. Dwyer, the fusion
nominee. His ability and integrity
have never been questioned, aud there
is no reason wby he should not re
ceive the vote of every man who de
sires that the legal affairsof the county
should be in competent hands.

CIIICKKNS COME HOME TO KOOST.
The poor, puny pusillanimous little
pirate who daily and semi-weekly in
sults the intelligence of the people of
Cass county by inflicting upon them a
bulldozing personal organ which he is
pleased to misname The News, jumps
onto the Nebraska City News because
the latter paper is opposed to the an
nexation of the Philippines. This
blushless buccaneer, who is so hide
bound that he cannot raise his chin
from his breast bone, and who is so
narrow that he cin gipe with both op
tics at once through the eye of a cam
bric needle, virtually accuses all who
oppose the president's plan of expan
sion, of treason, and then says "we are
thankful that they all belong to the
democratic party, which has never
mn1 a very enviable record for pat
riotism since it fired on Ft. Sumpter."
Lt us see if they all belong to the
democratic party. The Omaha Bee,
the leading republican paper of the
state, has been a consistent opponent
of expansion. Andrew Carnegie, who
has written columns of republican
gosppl and who has contributed bun
dred of thousands of dollars to repub
lican campaign funds, is warning the
people against tbe dire results which
will foilow territorial extension. The
republican state convention of Massa
chusetts has declared against the
policy which is being pursued by the
administration, and there are many
more, among them being Tbe Platts
mouth News, for in its issue of May
10, 1893, is to be found the following
What about tbe Philippine Islands? Well
Tbe News iaya, drop them a soon aa thebloodj

igence and urged on by the lust c conquest,

it not equally true now? Can the peo
ple want any better proof than the
above that tbe thinking for the repub
lican newspapers is done at republican
No democrat in the county should
fail to cast his vote for James P.

he owes to himself and his party. Mr.
House is tbe only populist on the
county ticket, and he is certainly
