Crounse and Van Wyck,
After the bebate in Lincoln, Septem
ber 29, the republican state committee
was guilty of some performances that
may safely be set dow;i as very small.
; First, it was reported that Crounse
. had a sore eye, and must be confined to
a dark room for many days. Then
Cady, without awy consultation with
the independent state committee, went

Chairman Blake to call off the debate
advertised for October 4, at York.
Cady then returned to Lincoln but
never had any consultation with the in
Mr. Blake decided to go ahead and
fill his half of the contract between the
committees. He therefore did not call
off any of the meetings. On the even

General Van Wyck took the train for
"York. Here thev found Tiro T.n

Greene In Fillmore.
Geneva, Neb.. Oct. 11. 1892,
W. L. Greene, of Buffalo county, de
livered an unanswerable argument at
this place on October 10. For two and
a half hours his audience listened and
cheered aud was increased in size as he
continued to drive the shots homo into
the republican listeners. Mr. Greene
made a host of friends and made votes
by his able address. The republicans

Dech and Hainer.
The joint debate batween Dech and
Hainer is progressing to the entire sat
isfaction of the independents. They
met at Beatrice on Friday afternoon,
the audience being rather small. Dech
made an excellent showing. The same
evening they debated again at Wymore.
The crowd was large and enthusia?tic.
Dech won a signal victory. On Satur
day they debated at Wahoo, in Dech's
own county, to an audience of some
1,200. On Monday they met at Aurora
Hainer's county. Here again they had
a large crowd, and Dech showed his
superior ability as a debatet. On Tues
day they debated at York to a fair au

At Wahoo Mr. Dech surprised TTai

committee on banking and currency in
tne nouse, ana nence was certainly
competent to speak. Mr. Dorsey gives

McKelghan and Andrews atMinden
The fifth McKelghan and Andrews
debate at Minden, October 6th, was
probably the most exciting politica
meeting in the history of the county.
Andrews' chairman, McPheeley, for
years attorney for the B. & M . insult: d
the people's party by questioning their
loyalty and had the insult hurled back
by Chairman Phillips and aUo by Mc
Kelghan who are both old veterans
while neither McPheeley or Andrews
ever smelt powder. On the contrary
they are both using every effort to ad
vanco the interests of alien corpora
tions at the expense of the American
Some of the people pulled their coats
and rushed to the platform and had not

down he would have felt the weirrht of
a righteous indignation.
He afterwards attempted to apologize
but was told to shut up and had to do

to find it a warm one for some time to
Andrews' speech was composed of
personal insults and lies made from
whole cloth that everyone in the au
dience knew to be such. He showed
not the slightest semblance of resrard
for truth or decency, He seems not to
wiish for the farmer vote as the only
thing he promised to do for them was
to vote to keep the tax on suffar. tin.
earthenware, etc.. and for reciprocity
to follow out the policy of the great
Blaine. When they asked him anv
questions as to how he would try to
benefit them, he insulted them, and
McPheelev told them thev were not
allowed to ask questions.
Among other insultiner remarks to
the farmer, he sa'd there was an odor
coming from the farmers and their
wives on the platform that was verv
offensive to him and he turned up his
long nose and sniffed contemptuously
in that direction.
McKeisrhan had said much of the
pottery made in this country had a
poor enamel and was checked
or cracked. Andrews claimed it
not, and cited as proof

Cass met at Wesping Water, the 8th,

that McKeisran's face was cracked and
checked. This made the people fairly
boil; one old soldier yelled "he got those
marks in the army,"iand the little puppy
after heaping other "insults on Mc
Keierhan. had the cheek to declare he
never insulted an old soldier in bis life;
he alwavs bad erreat love and respect
for them! Time and a?ain he misauot-

not have sense enough not to disturb
their own man. Their- instructions
were to make a noise and thev were
bound to earn their money. Some of
them swaggered around and with oaths
declared they would knock down any
man with a McKeicrhan bad ere but thev
gave that up. They had torch lights
and new uniforms bousrht with our
wheat crop, and taunted the people's
party with not being: able to have such
things. Those with badges of the
Hastings republican club went into a
lunch room run bv the ladies of the fJ.

themselves to evervthine- in -ffiorht
frightening some of the ladies badly.
They do not seem to love the soldier's
wife as much as the soldier's vote. But
it would require two newspapers to give
any kind of a report of the debate, this
is enough to show you the political pot
is boiling in Kearney county.
