VAN WYCK AND CUOUNSK.
The First Joint DIscuhhIofi at Ile-atrioc-Van
Wyck Away Ahead. .
On Tuesday afternoon the opera
house- was packed. The deba e was
opened by Gen. Van Wyck, who was
introduced by Chairman Millholland.
He mado a careful, and s'-rong speech
Ho discussed trus's first, showed how
they had grown up aid flourished
under republican rule. Uo touched on
tho tariff incidentally referring to the
timo when tho republicans called him
many hard names for proposing free
sugar. He then talked of stiver, mak
ing some very strong points. He
wanted to know why the republic ins
hid not reduced freight rates in Ne
braska after all their promises
Mr. Crounso in his reply surprised
boih his friends and opponents. Ho is
not such a man as the pooplo have
mostly imagined. Ho is ignorant to
begin with. Then ho has a blunt, un
courteous manner. Van Wyck treated
him with tho greatest courtesy, but
Crounso was almost insulting in return.
Ho is an aristocrat who has no sympa
thy with tho people, nor can ho even
assume a sympathy with them. Ho
dofentkd Carnegie and tho millionaires
us aclass. no had nothing but ridicule
and scorn for tho people who c 'mplain
of tho present state of affairs. Uo says
success or failuro in business is all "a
question of rapacity In the upper story."
Ho claimed that tho farmers of tdo
state are prosperous; and have nothing
to complain of.
In closing, Van Wyck fired up in
groat shape. He called Crounse down
on his ridicule and misrepresentation.
Tho crowd went wild with enthusiasm.
He explained his Union Pacilis bill in
a way that satisfied everybody.
Even the old parly papers, including
tho State Journal, spoak of the debate
in a tone that shows that their man was
Ono of the most singular things
Crounse did was to eulogize Morton,
the democratic candidate. He spoke
of him in the highest terms. Then
Morton spoke in the evening, returned
the compliment, and attacked Van
Wyck as usual. It is becoming more
and more evident that the two are
working together to defeat the old
war-horse, but they have undertaken a
task they will never accomplish.
At Stlvtr Creek.
The Poynter-Meiklejohn debato ad
vertised for October 13th is at Silver
Creek, Merrick county, and not at anv

A Railroad Tool.
. Jas. E. North, a rank democratic
gold-bug and railroad tool has : been
nominated for state sonator from the

go xl and great interest was shown. On
th3 fifth ballot J. S. Rutherford of

Tho second week of tho Kem and
Whitehead debato began with a meet
ing at Lexington Dawson county, on
Tuesday evoi.ing. About 2000 were
present. The State Journal as usual
says Kem was "not in it." which being
translated means that Kem wiped up
the earth with Whitehead.
A Three Day's Ioe Feast of Reason
At Fairbury, Jefferson county, Sep-
ember 21, 22 and 23, occurred one of
ho greatest po'itical demons tra ions
in the history of southern Nebraska.
The crowd ranged fro n two to five
thousand, and hardly less than eight
thousand different persons were
The speakers wore ex-Judge Cole,
ex-Congressman Gillette of Iowa, Prof.
Biddison of Kansas, Prof. Vincent of
ndianapolis, Carl Brown of California,
John H. Powers, J. M. Devine, J. M.
Gnnnett, Logan McReynolds and
others of Nebraska.
The speeches made were exceedingly
able and eloquent. Each bad his own
way of presenting matters, so there
was no ropltition, no monotony.
Especial mention should be mado of
Prof. Howard's singing. His render
ing of "That Honest Dollar," "We
Have the Tariff Yet," "Losses and
les," and "Get Off the Earth" was in-
imitablo and - added great'y to the
success of the meeting.
On the whole it was a grand success

ning. , .
Out of the Race.
J. J. Mcintosh of Sidney who was
nominated for congress by the demo
crats of the Sixth district has written
a letter in which ho says he has not
been a citizen long enough to be eligi
ble, and he therefore decline, it is
not likely anyono will bo put in his
place, and Kem and Whitehead will be
left to fight it out.
Fusion in Wyoming.
The first people's stato convention
met at Douglas, Wyoming, September
21, and after a long discussion decided
to put an electoral ticket in I he field

strong hold, baunders county, had a
great convention at Wahoo September
21. P. B. Olson and J. N. Gaffin were

tho ppople will ratify them with a big
majority on olection day.
Kem and Whitehead at O'Neill.
About 2,000 people listened to the
Kem-Whitehead debate here tho 24th
Matt Gering was hero and was let in
to represent the democrats which he
did in verv good shape.
Kem mado a very strong presenta
tion of the principles of bis party, and
completely refuted Whitehead's at
tacks on his record. Whitehead didn
scarcely touch the vital issues. His
speech was mostly buncombe. Kem
certainly won a signal victory.c
THAT FAIRBURY MEETING.
In The Republican Valley.

meetings in the Republican Valley.

view with Dr. Exum, the people's can
didate for governor of North Carolina

Pawnee City, Neb., Sept. 26, '92.
Bro. Thornton, Lincoln, Neb.
Mr. J. W. Edgerton's address last
at Pawnee City "took the cake," so
say all the people. Co'.lins, Wheedon,
Field and Bryan have come and gone;
but it remained for Edgerton to give
us good wholesome food for thought.
A great throng listened to the only
Carl Brown for over two hours. Brown
wai treated courteously at Pawnee
City, our people always do so. But oh
how sick he made the tariff yet re
publicans and democrats.
Pawnee says send us Prof. Howard,
Edgerton and Brown once more and we
will sweep the county.
McKeican and Andrews.
On Tuesday afternoon, Sept. 27, tho
second joint discussion between the in
dependent and republican candidates
for congress in the 5th district came off
at Sutton. The first was held at Has
tings, Andrew's home. He had his
friends to make up the crowd, and his
college boys with their yell. And he
had the opening and closing speeches.
But even with all these advantages
McKeighan demonstrated his great
superiority as a reasoner, and the truth
of his principles.
At Sutton, McKeighan had the open
ing. He also had the crowd. He di
rected the debate largely to the money
question. His speech was clear, con
vineisg and eloquent. Andrews in re
ply gave nothing but ridicule, assertion
and bluster. It was entirely one sided.
