Will the Voters of Nebraska Let This Pliant Tool lie Elected to Thwart Theic Legislative Will? "
Greely Centkk, Neb., Oct. 23. To
the Editor of the Bee: Some of the
friends of Judge T. O. C. Harrison, the
Republican nominee for the supreme
bench, have been leudly asserting that
he had no connection whatever with the
corporations of the state, but there are
one or two matters intimately associated
with his official career In this part of
his judicial district that will have to be
quite extensively explained before the
people of Greely county will concede
that Judge Harrison's relations with
the railroads are not closer than they
ought to be.
Unfortunately (or the judge and his
loud-mouthed friends, there are letters
in existence in this county, signed by no
less importaut personages than General
Manager Holdredge and General Attor

declare in bo uncertain language that

It will be remembered that two years
ago Judge Harrison and Judge Coffin
were the republican nominees for re
election to the bench in this district,
and the former was successful, while
tho latter was defeated by Judge Thomp
son of Grand Island. After the close of
the campaign Judge Harrison came to
a certain attorney In this vicinity who
had worked very earnestly in behalf of
the Republican judicial ticket, bed re
quested him to turn in the bill of ex
pense incurrrd during the campaign,
saying he was ready to settle in cash for
whatever work had been done, and to
reimburse the attorney for whatever he
had expended. The judge was inform
ed that whatever bad been 'dona had
been done purely out of friendship for
Judge Coffin, and that the attorney bad
expected no pay, neither would he ac
cept any. "

The judge thanked him and expressed
the hope that he would be called upon
if it ever lay in his power to grant any
favor. The offer was thankfully ao
knowledged, and the pair separated.
That was during the latter part of
November, and on the 26th of December
the attorney wrote a letter to General
Manager Holdredge requesting an
annual pass over the lines of the Bur
lington for 1892.
It was answered by tho Burlington
czar on the 2nd of January, and the
writer "regretted that the request
could not be complied with."
Then it was that the attorney thought
of his judicial friend and tho promise
of assistance that he had made. He
bad heard it rumored that certain mem
bers of the judiciary stood very close to
the railroad throne, and he wrote to
Judge Harrison, stating what he wanted
and also setting forth his unsuccessful

o'clock last night by a', vote of 43 ta
S3, the senate, after one of the moat
remarkable parliamentary battles
of a generation, passed the bill anw
conditionally repealing the furchai
ing clause of tho Sherman silver law.
The end was reached at the
conclusion of a continuous session
of fourteen ,days, after sixty'
one days of debate, during?
which five volumes of the Congress
slonal Record had been filled with
speeches, amounting to in the aggro
gate about 20,000.000 words, a stream
of talk that would stretch, in cold
type, from the , seaboard 1,000 mile
into the interior, from Liberty En
lightening tho World in New York
harbor, to the foot hills of the Rocky
mountains. ' -,
The closing day of the great strug
glo was one of intense excitement .
The galleries were packed to the doors,
every seat in the senate was occupied
and the walls were lined with rep
resentatives from the lower branch of
congress. The wifirf of senatorial
courtesy was no protection in the last
moments. Gray haired men did not

the doom of silver was the doom of the
old parties, but there was something
tragically patnetic in the despairing
cry of the silver senator. It meant,
they said, ruin and destruction, and
desolation to the silver producing
states. Senator Jones, with an em
phasis tuat will never be forgotten by
those who heard him, warned thosa
about him that the end of the fierht
