REiPUBLICAX STATE C0XVEXTI0X
In the hotels the same old hungry
crowd, were jostling, a he .grangers
were conspicuous by their ateenoe. "Not
half a .dozen real farmers were in the
whole outfit. Watson, Ransom, iPhil
lips. Cams, Smith Caldwell, and birds
of that feather; lawyers, land sharks,
bankers.-editors, station agents, railroad
strikers and. post masters.
Wednesday evening it was said the bar
at the Lincoln Jlotel took in $319. Are
the prohibs joining the republican party?
It don't look so.
That corporation capper Doc S. D.
Mercer, of Omaha, made the change of
his vote from Reese to Post as conspic
uous as possible.
Frank Ransom, when he moved that
no changes of votes be allowed, said that
"the republican party tad no votes to
throw away." He was mighty right.
Judge Reese took Lis uodicine like a
A delegate who had b3en casting the
five votes of Cheyenne county steadily
for Post every time said ' lioese was
served right. It would teach him not to
be fooling around with his anti-monopoly
notions in the republican party."
True. Thursday's convention confirmed
the fact that such notions have no place
in that party.
Doc Mercer is not a true blue, sure
enough railroad man. Oh, no! He
don't use steam on his roads. He only
uses electricity. But they say he uses
soap on the curves, and there'll be some
pretty sharp curves in this campaign.
tW A very good friend misunder
stood the intention of our item last
week about Gov. Thayer's letter. We
did not intend to be understood as con
demning the board of public lands and
buildings in the Test-Liveringhouse
matter. On the contrary we fully ap
proved it, and believe those fellows
should have been bounced long before
they were. As for the other matter in
which our friend seems hurt, we will
say that we consider the late report of
the board of transportation on the mat
ter of rates to be the worst cfiicial out
rage evei perpetrated on the people of
this or any other state.
THE WORLD-HERALD SUP
Ow Jo " Suie to Get There.
The following editorial appeared in
the Omaha hi d Herald, iu double
leaded type, the morning after the re
publican staw convention:
Between Post and Edgerton.
Boyd's veto of the Newberry bill and
the recent failure of the democratic state
convention to repudiate It, combined to
relegate the democratic party to third
place in state politics this year.
The race for supreme ceurt judge is
between Edgerton and Post. Judge
Broady.if he shall finally decide to run,
must inevitably be worsted in the three
cornered fight. His good name and un
questioned abiltity can avail little in
the present struggle. The railroads
will be for Post, the anti-monopolists
for Edgerton, and between these two
any democratic candidate must inevi
tably be ground to powder.
The real issue at the polls, therefore,
next November in Nebraska will not be
between republicanism and democracy,
cor between tariff robbery and tariff
reform, nor between silver coinage and
its opponents, but it will be between a
railroad and an anti-railroad candidate
for the supreme court between a can
didate of the corrupt old republican ma
chine, which basso long ruled, the state
building and a man fresh from the pee-
Edgerton is the man who can beat
Post and drive the entering wedge for
the work of reform at the state capitol.
He is a man of good reputation and
stroDg character. He is an experienced
lawyer, with fair legal attainments and
average success, lie is the man ior ine
The above editorial presages beyond
a shadow of a doubt the earnest sup
port of Mr. Edgerton for supreme judge
by the World-Herald. This accession to
our ranks means at least ten thousand
additional votes for Mr. Edgerton, and
places his election beyond a shadow f
a doubt. It also means not only the
possibility, bnt the extreme probability
of carrying Douglas cownty for our can
didate. The World-Herald has larger
circulation than the See and is by all
odds the ablest conducted paper. We
welcome it to the rwiifl of the inde
pendent press. Its proprietor Mr.
Hitchcock, is a man of marked inde
prndence and individuality of charac
ter. He has nadc few aaistakes as .a
newspaper man, aud fae his own
master in every particular. His strokes
for monetary reform have long won the
admiration of advanced thinkers.

no place to go except the independent
party. That's where a majority of them
will bring up.

Post means the rule of the railroads and
Edgerton means the rule of the people.
dTJohn M. Thurston named the re

more than two weeks before the conven

knew nothing about it.

The Journal devotes half a col
umn to crucifying Mr. Burrows about a
secret political meeting on the 7th of
July of last year. Now the Journal is
very badly posted. That meeting was
one of representatives from the several
counties of the first congressional dis
trict, and wa3 called by Mr. Burrows
and other gentlemen solely to organize
a provisional district committee. It
was no more secret than any other dele
gate meeting, and was held with open
doors and windows. It did not con
sider the gubernatorial question or can
didates, but confined itself to the ob
ject for which it was called. It was
made Hp of farmers, merchants and
working men, and was very satisfactory
in its results, and the Journal can make
the most of it.

this he drew January 3. 1891, $355 03,
but this was evidently fees and mileage
for the year 1800. Now let us take one
item alone and dissect it.
THE GREAT SHEEDY CASE.
On May-7, the court issued a special
venire for a panel of 150 jurors. The
next day the court issued a second
venire for another panel of 150 men.
Sam McClay sent out his four deputies
to summon these 300 men to appear
forthwith and serve as jurors in the
case. It took the four deputies just
three days to summon nearly all of these
special jurors. McClay bi tags in the
bill of costs against the county as lol

ow, the sheriff was entitled to the fees
for service and copies of venire amount
ing to $135, providing it would not make
his salary in excess of the prescribed
amount by law of $2,500 a year. The
service and copies are accounted for in
McClay's quarterly report. Hut here is
$203 30 for mileage wh?ch is not ac
counted for. Sam calls it expenses in
serving papers. It teas Ms own salaried
men uho didithe work. They are paid by
the countwfer this work. If he was at any
expense in paying livery hire for these
four men three days each, it would
certainly not have exceeded $10 each,
or $40 for all of them. Allowing this,
here is $103,30 yet to be accounted for.
Take McClay's quaiterly reports of
the amounts he collects and then add to
the "rake-off" in the many cases like
that of the-Sbeedy case and see whether
or not McClay does not get more than
$2,500 a year, the amount prescribed by
law. While the law is chasing Sam
Melick for doing this very thing, let
them investigate the eighteenth year
reign of the "McClay Dynasty." Let
'the expert accountants look over Sam's
books and see how many pennies they
can find accounted for as fees received
for foreign business. This includes the
serving of papers on persons sued else
where than this countv, or persons
here sued elsewhere. These fees run
from $40 to $100 a month. Sam puts
this down his. jeans as extra. It will
amount to nearly $1,000 a year.

The Father of the Famous Newberry
Bill Defines His Position in Plain
Jehn M. Moan, of Dakota county, who
is known all over the west as the man
who stood up at Lincoln las', winter and
fought the railroad lobby as it bad never
been fought before, is in the city.
To a World-Herald reporter Mr. Moan
last night declared himself as follows:
"The contest in Nebraska today is
clearly and plainly between the robber
freight rates and the people. The peo
ple of this state would be stra ige indeed
if they failed to appreciate this issue to
day. The railroad lobby certainly has
an exalted idea of its power if it thinks
it can crowd this issue to one side. It
cannot bo done. We remember that
during the last session of the legislature
the most shameful acts by the hired
tools of the railroad were made- public.
When they failed in their attempts to
defeat the passage of a maximum freight
bill in order to obtain a parliamentary
advantage they deliberately ran away
with a senator. The conduclof the rail
road lobby at the last session was more
shameful than ever before manifest in
the history of the state.
"But these recollections had not died
away when the state board of transpor
tation secretaries were chosen, and at
least two of these were known to be rail
"Then this body has the audacity to
go through the sham of taking evidence
on the subject of freight rates in Ne
braska, and alter this iarce is gone
through with they boldly declare that
present freight rates are all right and
must not be lowered. Such a succes
sion of irrpudent moves has never been
heard of in any other state than Ne
braska. At the democratic and repub
lican conventions of 1801 the railroad
lobby was present and made no attempt
to conceal their lively interest in the
proceedings. At the republican con
vention they named tne candidate and
defeated the man who represented the
anti-monopoly sentiment in the party. 1
When the state ooara oi transporta
tion made the move to investigata the
'freight' rate question those who were
familiar with that question believed
that the board would make a slight re
duction simply for political effect. Few
bad any idea that tne board would have
the presumption to make or the rail
roads dr.re to have made the report pre
sented. "But it was clear that the railroads
have determined to fight It out without
concealing the questionable work of
"In the light of these facts it would
be straiige indeed did the people fail to
grasp the present situation in .Nebraska.
"The issue is plainly shall the rail
roads continue their injustice-against
the business interests of this state and
shall the Impudent methods of the lobby
go unremitted? Snail tne bold abduc
tion of a state senator and the appoint'
ment to office of known railroftd lobby.
ista be indorsed? Shall these lobbyists
be encouraged in their efforts to pre
vent the people ot this state from ob
taining relief ? I am a democrat. But
if the standard bearer of my party halts
in the light, and while the enemy is
moving to capture the contested point,
he refuses to lead his forces,there Is but
one thi jg to be done. That thing ds to
bend every energy to the aid of the
loader of our allies in the battle against
a common foe.
"If Post wins it will be an indorse
ment of the boodle methods of Nebras
ka's railroad lobby. If Broadv with
draws and Edgerton wins it will be a re
buke to these metnotis, ana an nonest
and conscientious man and a good law
yer will be elected. In such a contest I
am for Edgerton. As between the rail
road lobby and the people of Nebraska
I am with the latter. The issue cannot
be dodged. Neither could Edgerton's
election under such circumstances be
dodged. The f'rst is apparent and the
second would be as certain to be a? that
election day will roll around.
"In the Newberry bill of last winter
Edgerton's counsel was valuable to the
friends of the measure. In that right he
won theconlidenceof those closely asso
ciated with him. I regard him as a
good lawyer and an honest man.
"The farmers are not alone interested
in this tight. The business men of this
state need relief from railroad robbery,
and J believe that all over the state the
merchants who have been bulldozed
from expressing their bonest opinion
will come to the front and aid in the
battle against the power of the lobby."
"In the event that Judge Broauy
withdraws will you take a personal in
terest in Edgerton's fight?" Mr. Moan
"It will be more thar. a personal in
terest, " replied the Nemesis of the rail
road lobby. "I will take off my coat
and do anything in my power. It will
be humble aid, but what it may lack in
strength it will make up in fervor."
EVERYTHING COMING OUR WAY.
Uod on the Side of the People.
God seems to bo shaping all political
events' in this state to secure a sweeping
victory for the people. Beginning last
winter every important political occur
rence has been on our side has tended
to cement the independent forces, and
bring recruits to its banners. Look at
the formidaole list:
The demo-repub. combine.
The corrupt defeat of the contest.
The bribery of the senators.
The deadlock in the senate.
The corrupt adjonrnmant of th3 si:
The veto of the Newberry bill.
The candidacy of' Judge Cobb.
The Roggen letter.
The second slaughter of Judge Reese.
The inauguration of a bondle cam
paign by the appointment of Mercer
and Roggen on the repub. state com
mittee. The declination of Judge Broady.
Every one of the above occurrences
was a calamity to the rcpub-corpo.
power in this state, and leads the way
to its final overthrow. God speed the
day! It is a day we have cried for and
prayed for for many a weary waiting
year. We see now not far before us its
glad dawning. When it dawns we can
lay down the fight with a clear con
science and a satislied heart.
We invite special attention to our
proposition in this week's issue for a
subscription to place The Alliance la

and democratic tottrs ef this state. We
will do this for four thousand dollars;
and this sum should be easily raised by

The Saunders County Fair.
On Thursday of last week we visited
Wahoo and the county fair. Under the
present management Saunders couBty
had a very successful and interesting
display of farm products, and the atten
dance was good, so that they scored a
financial success also. President Wool
ley and Secretary Negley seem to be
the right men in the right places, while
our friend James A. Moss as superin
tendent ably filled that responsible posi
tion. The display of corn was better than
any shown at the state fair in our opln.
ion, and the other farm displays were
very line. The art exhibit was espe
cially good. A complete showing was
nude of fruiw and flowers, also pre
serves, jellies, etc Grandma Copp, 78
years old. showed fourteen varieties of
i?lly, made by her own hands. The bus-
ness nrms or W ahoo made some good
displays of furniture, hardware, &c.
The Wahoo & Weston Horse Co
J. L. Coleman, superintendent, had
some good English Shires on exhibition
and Iook nrst and second premiums.
A number of other firms had horses but
we failed to got their names. N. Bro
dahl, Wahoo, showed Hereford cattle:
Knox & Woodworth, Wahoo, sanio.
The Clover Mound herd of Fremont,
Nob., was also represented. A number
of sheep men were on hand N. Finn
showing Colswolds and Merinos. F. C
Porter, Yorkshire swine. T. J. Bores-
ford, Ceresco, showed a number ef Po
land Chinas, iucluding King Leo, the
winner of second prize at Iowa and Ne
braska Btato fairs, now owned by him.
Uur space will not admit of extended
notices but the management are to
congratulated on their success. Col.
S. F. Norton spoke on Wednesday.
and Pres. Powers addressed a large
crowd on Thursday. His remarks were
well received. Hon. A. Watkins de
llvered an address on Friday.

If you come to the city drop in and see us; we'll make yotnr call a pleasant one
whether you want to buy anything or not. YVe want to make your acquaintance.
We find that nearly every time we make an acquaintance we make a customer.
You can save enough on just a small bill of goods bought at Bennett's to pay a
good many miles ofrailroad fare. But if you can't come mail us your order.
We sell nearly everything on earth, and if you don't know from your own ex
perience that all our prices are lower than any body else's just ask some of your
neighbors. Some of them are our customers and they're a better advertisement
than a newspaper. Send for our price list.
