Gen. Mahone has been nominated for
governor of Virginia and will lead the
republicans to victory this fall.
Kearney is to have free postal deliv

of Nebraska grow into cities and the

The Cronin murder trial has begun.
All the prisoners demand separate trials,
and all claim to fear contamination
from Woodruff. The arguments for sep
arate trials were commenced yesterday,
but the result is not yet known.
The authorities at Washington have
issued orders that the United States flag
shall be hoisted on all government
buildings every day. That is right. It
will give the people an opportunity to
see what buildings belong to the govern
ment in the various cities and towns.
Mexico is confronted by-a. number of
gigantic trusts. It seems the govern

have to form a combine to crush the
trusts, or organize a trust of such gigan

The O. A. R.- veterans are flocking to
Milwaukee by the thousands and the in

Michigan, will be the next commander-in-chief.

Weeping Water tried to get up a boom
by sending out the report that Tascott
had been arrested there1. It would be a
great relief to the world if Tascott was
in custody and if that individual had
much regard for the general welfare of
the people he would surrender himself
and put an end to the suspense.
Major J. B. Davis, of Wahoo, depart
ment commander of the Nebraska de
partment of the Grand Army of the Re
public, died a few days ago. His death
brings sorrow to many a heart for he
was highly esteemed in all Grand Army
circles and bad hosts of friends among
those who were not in the army.
This office received a few days ago a
copy of the new railroad map of Ne
braska, issued by the state board of
transportation, through the courtesy of
our friend, Atty. Gen. Leese. The va
rious railroads are marked by different
colored lines which makes it very con
venient for reference and is duly appre
ciated by us.
A large number of counterfeit silver
dollars are reported in circulation in
Lakota and it is supposed that a gang of
counterfeiters are working the northwest.
The coins are said to be very good imita
tions of the genuine, with the exception
of being of lighter weight Is is well to
be on the lookout for these coins.
Hon C. H. Cornell has sent his resig
nation aa senator from the 14th district
to Gov. Thayer. The reason for this
action is his appointment to the Valen
tine land office. This will make it ne
cessary for a new senator to be elected
at the coming election. Unless there is
a special session of the legislature called
the ptrson will have no official acts to
perform during bis term of office. But
that should make no difference to the
republicans and they should select a man
in every way worthy ho that when the

deal of feeling, not only in Liverpool,
but throughout England in the case.
Many believe the woman not guilty of
poisoning her hushad, and an application
for a ardon will doubtless be strongly
urged in lier favor.
Judge Cooley, of tlie interstate rail
road commission, has given tlie compan
ies to understand tliat the laws were not
made to lie violated. There has been
a great deal of law breaking all over the
country for the past few years, not on
ly by railroads but by air classes, and
the people liave c-ome to tile conclusion
that it must stop, and when the people
of the United States, or any part there
of, decide tliat lawlessness lias gone far
enough they soon find a way to put a
stop to it.
The indications are that M. B. Reese
will receive the nomination for another
term on the supreme bench of Nebraska,
almost unanimously. A number of can
didates have beeii mentioned but none of
them appear to have made any effort to
secure the nomination. If there is any
objection to Judge Reese it is scattered
and unorganized. It is a gid plan to
retain men on the supreme bench who
have had experience and the republican
convention will do well to give Judge
Reese a hearty endorsement for another
The prohibitionists of Nebraska met at
Lincoln a few days ago and assed reso
lutions on almost everything and
agaiust the republican party in articu
lar. The greatest discussion was called
out over the point of wishing the non-
partizan temperance movement success.
Some of the leaders of the third party
movement are so crank)' that they can
see nothing of good except in their own
circle, and others do not want prohibi
tion to earn' for they would be out of a
job. There were about ISO delegates at
Gov. Waterman, of California, has in
structed the attorney general to dismiss
the proceedings against Justice Field for
complicity in the shooting of Terry.
That was the right course and the sooner
Deputy Nagle is vindicated the lielter it
will he for the country. It is necessary
for those who do not like to obey the laws
to learn that they dare not attempt to
intimidate the courts by threats of per
sonal violence. If a judge does a party
to a suit a wilful injustice there is a way
to make him legally account for his ac
tion. Personal attacks like that of Terry
upon Field are very poor arguments and
generally revert upon the person making
The republican state convention will
meet at Hastings on Tuesday, Octolier 8,
1889. at 8 o'clock p. m., to place in nom
ination candidates for one associate jus
tice of the supreme court and two re
gents of the state university. The rep
resentation is based on the vote cast for
George H. Hastings for presidential
elector and there will be one delegate at
large for each county and one delegate
for each 150 votes or major fraction
thereof. It will lie the largest conven
tion ever held in the state, and will have
816 delegates. Sioux county will be
entitled to three delegates. Oood re
publicans should be selected from this
county so that in future the party here
will have a standing in state politics,
The last issue of the Chadron Demo
crat contains a long article relative to
the conduct of the democratic land offi
cials at that place and re-produces some
correspondence which paased between
W. H. Ketchum, of the Crawford Clip
per, the acting commissioner of the land
office and Messers Montgomery and
Crites. Ketchum made a kick because
he did not get his share of the land no
tices, and acting Commissioner Stone
wrote to the officials at Chadron relative
to the matter. In answer to this Messrs.
Montgomery and Crites say: "Further
in relation to this matter, we have long
since established a rule permitting the
settlers to have their notice published in
the newspaper of their choice, provided
that it was a well established paper and
one that had a bona fide circulation."
The gentlemen who attached their
names to the epistle are about to be re
lieved by the republicans appointed to
take the positions and it is hoped tliat
no grounds for kicking will be given.
We believe Bro. Ketchum made a mis
take when he appealed to the depart
ment on political grounds, for when
democrats are in power republican pa
pers have no right to expect patronage
and the same rule obtains when the offi
ces are held by republicans. But the
democratic- officials of the Uhadron land
office did not keep faith with the people.
After Harrison was elected and it was
evident that their official career would
be cut short, Messrs Montgomery and
Crites, probably with a view to hold the
offices a little longer, issued the rule
above referred to. But how did they
establish that rule? if it suited their no
tion liiey sent tiie notices to the paper
designated and if it did not suit they sent
tiieiu elsewhere. They claim that no
other adminwtratation permitted the set
tler to have a word to say in the matter.
We fail to see what satisfaction it was
to the settler to say in what paper he de
sired lus notice published and then hv
it seat somewhere else. As to letting the
ieople say a word, U democratic re
ceiver goes so far as to arrogate to him
self the right to designate tlte paper in
which Ute initial notice in a contest case
should be publislied, but where lie got
tlie authority for that is a mystery. But
they liave had their day and ere many
suns shall rise and set tlie republican
officials will take control and Mr. Mont
gomery .an retire" to his farm in Boone
county, and Mr. Crites can rustle with
the rest on tlie outside. Let tiiem go.

We liave recently strengthened
the firm by the admission to part
nership of Chas. E. Holatew, one of
north west Nebraska's ablest lawyers-,
who wrfl pay special attention
to law and land practice. We shall
continue to- make the . very best
terms on farm loans, and invite all
to confer with us before signing ap
plications with other parties. If
you need insurance on you build
