be robbed during a period of nearly
eighteen year of approximately four

much of deuth-bed repentance for the re

A reading of Iloueo Itoll 007 will die-

THE TOOL OF 00EP0RATI0NS
Railroad Politicians Proparing to
Name the Republican Ticket
KseU From a Itepublleau aoures.
No man know the inxlilo hlxtory of
Nebraka politic better then K, Hose
water, of tho Omaha Hoe. No one la
butter qualified to rehearse the etory of
bow the republican organixation In Ne
braska bocatno the agent aud pander of
uorporate harlotry than Uosowater
Aud no ouo know better thanks the
plan now making by which the old cor
poration gang intend to rotain their
control. Koeewater's opinion of the
situation just now hu special interest,
Here it Is ae given in the Ilea last week
"Ten year ago Nebraska elected It re
Cublican state ticket by more than 25,
00 majority and gave lloninmin Harrl
son a plurality of over VH.OOO. Two
your later tho state elected a demo
cratic governor aud the republican ex
ecutive officer barely squeezed through.
Tho prevailing impression that thi t re
men Jou upheaval wa caused by the
folly of forcing the prohibition Issue on
the people I by no mean correct. Pro
hibition unquestionably lost the repub
lican many thousand rotes, but the
mam factor in the upheaval was the re
volt of tho republican former against
oppressive railroad exactions and cor
porate domination of the party. With
perverse blindness the sell stylud party
loader closed their eyes and ears to tho
portentous figure presented by the
election return or icuo. uut oi an ag
grcgate of 210,000 votes the republican
candidate polled a fraction urn than
00,000, the populist cundidate a little
over 7t',oou, aud toe democratic cande
date nourly 72,000. Manifestly the po
litical forces were almost equally di
vidud into three camps of 70,000 each.
Any man with a grain of politioal sa
gacity should have realised that the
chances of the republicans wore hopeless
unless they could keep the two opposing
force from effecting a junction. Instead
of pursuing a policy looking to thi end,
the republican uuder the guidance of
John L, Webster and several other
equully impolitic cuptaius, virtually
drove the democrat into tho populist
camp by their foolhardy uttompt to
keep Hoyd out of the governorship to
which he had been elected.
Recognizing the peril by which the
party was confronted on account of the
docpeeuted anti-monopoly sentiment,
the republicans attempted to retrace
their misstep in 1MU2 by making Lorenzo
(VouiiKe their standard bearer. Y-tt it
was only by the division of the opposi
tion thut they succeeded in carrying the
stute for Harrison aud Crouuso by in

Ths republican state convention met

large attendance most of the counties
being represented. The delegates were,
however, not so many lu number ns
those of the populist convention lost

farmers sat as delegate, most of them
being professional aud busluess men.
There wa a large number of ex-oouuty
oflloers, a liberal sprinkling of the old

many new faces.

trouble wa that there was no bermony.
The IJayward delegate openly Insulted

The temporary chairman's speech was
rank enough republican to suit any g. o.

"The Omaha platform that peculiar

Home one sprang to his foot and
moved that the temporary organiza

Thurston made a speech In his usual
