ITon. E. J. Hall, edlW of the Grand
Island Democrat, ail a democratic
member of the last 1 gislaturo comes

ent nominee for congress in the fourth
Wo see tbat the Lincoln Journal is
spending a good deal of time and space
trying to injure Hon. W. II. Dech, the
independent candidate for congress in
the fourth district. This Is to be ex
pected of such papers as the Journal,
but even that railroad organ is carry
ing the matter to extremes.
if it wonld confine its abuso to Its own
sland-jn?, it would make no difference
as the people of the fourth district know
the incentives and motives of that class
of political character assassins, and the
slanders would fall harmless. But the
Journal goes farther than this. It
goes to Saunders county, tho home of
Mr. Dech, and secures the services of
some republictn pollt'cal s'andorers to
write communications against him, in
timating that ho was and is a political
vagabond, despised by all who know
him, and that he will be snowed under
in his home county.
We have known Mr. Doch intimately
since 1871, and wo know him to bo a
friend of tho people, and we know tho
peoply of his homo county to be friends
of bis. To show his standing at home,
and why the politicians are fighting
him, we havo only to recite a little of
his political history.
In 1872 ho was elected to the legisla
ture, and during that session led the
fight against the penitentiary ring and
gained tho enmity of the politicians
He fought the attempted steal of the
saline lands and gained the enmity of
the robbers. After tho session of tho
legislature, he lived at home on his
farm in Wahoo precinct, Saunders
county, and for fivo consocutivo years
ho was elected by his neighbors a
Hwow of tho precinct, when he rj
f u oil to hold the office any longer.
In 188.3 ho was again elected this time
to tho state senate, on tho greenback
ticket in tho banner republican county
of the state by a majority of 414 votes
over his competitor T. B. Wilson of
Ashland. During this session of tho
legislature ho was instrumental in the
passago in the senate of the first rail
road freight bill that ever, up to that
time, came anywhere near becoming a
For this he gained the enmity of the
railroad?. In his political tight in
Saunders county he has always been
aggressive, but always on tho side of
the pooplo, and his honesty has never
been impugned. His aggressiveness
made him enomics among that common
political scum who are always seeking
political preferment for what there is
in it in the way of profit, and it is the
political scum that is help'ng the Lin
coln Journal cry him down in the in
terest cf tho corporations, combina
tions and politic'ans. We do not live
in the district in which Mr. Dech is
running for congress, and have no in
terest in the election further than to
see fair play, and to sec a good man
sent to congress from every district.
We are a democrat, but have no poli
tical future to guard as we would the
app'e of our eye, and consequently
have no hesitancy in saying that W. H.
Doch comes nearer representing the
principles of trae democracy than any
man running for congress m that dis
trict. Besides this, the fight is be
tween him and the republican candidate
and if there is anything we do desire
more than Another, it is to see the
advocates of high tariff and single
standard money snowed under by the
votes of the people, whenever and
wherever opportunity presents itself.
Mr. Dech is an honest man. We
know him to be a friend of the people,
and if elected to congress will be found
on all quest' ons voting for the interests
or the agricultural state oi JNeorastc.
We shall probably get no thanks for
takins up this fight, but we cannot
help but do justice to a friend that we
know is bsing abused and maligned by
Dolitical mountebanks . who are un
worthy of beinsr mentioned in connec
tion with the name of W. H. Dech,
especially when we know that the war
on that friend is maae lor me one pur
pose of crushing out a friend of human
ity to serve the purposes of the corpo-

Press Drill h.
Few farm implements havo met with
such success as the press drill. They
seem to supply a long felt want in agri
culture. The Van Brunt & Davis Co. make
one of tho very best drills on the
market, and Mr. F. W. Lawrence, of
this city, thoir state agent, is ready to
answer any questions concerning . drills
and machinery in general.
In advertising tho above drill an
error was mide that might puzzle some
of our readers. In stating sizes the
type made us say 8 shoe 8 in., 10 shoe
8 in., and 12 shoo 10 in., should have
been 8 shoe 8 in., 10 shoo 7 in., 12 shoe
6 in. See corrected advertisement this
week and write for particulars.
