Ed. A. Fry, editor of the Niobrara
Pioneer, is being favorably spoken of as
a candidate for state senator from the
eighth district and it looks now as if Mr.
Fry would be the nominee of the repub
licans for that office. No man lias done
more for the settlement and upbuilding
of that portion of the state than he, and
it is safe to predict that should lie be
made member of the state senate the in
terests of his district and the state at
large would receive his best efforts.
, The democratic national convention
last week nominated a ticket composed of
Grover Cleveland for president and Adlai
E. Stevenson of Illinois for vice-president.
The Hill faction made a hard flylit and
t,he democracy of New York is in a
pretty badly split up condition. The
Indiana delegation, were confident of the
selection of Cray for second place, but
. he dominent faction did not see it that
way and named the Illinois man. This
is also considered to militate against the
chances for democratic success. A
severe storm, the falliug of a number of
arc lights, and a few other things tended
to break into the work of the gathering,

be more fairminded than he was sup
posed to be and stating that all of his
friends liad voted to stmt Keidy out, he
was going to go the other way and de
cided that he should be seated. The
delegation was instructed for H. G.
8tewart for state senator so he v. HI be a
candidate, at least before the senatorial
convention. The resolutions which are
the production of Mr. Stewart are pecu
liar. They urge against factionalism
and talk harmony at the beginning and
wind up by complimentingCommissioner
Weber and ignoring Commissioner Knott,
notwithstanding that they were both
members of the convention and the latter
was reallv more the creature of the or
ganization which controls the independ
ent party for he was nominated tor com
missioner in a secret meeting of the
county alliance. But prejudice controls
trolssome people and leads them to do
some very foolish things. It came out
during the convention that some of the
delegates had a knife up their sleeve to
use on Stewart, but matters took such a
turn that they were not used.
With the excellent crop prospects of
this county there is no doubt that a
great many people will come here to
locate in the near future. Like every
, other county there is considerable deeded
, land jn the market and at prices that are
, low. People in the eas, have been cpn
, templating the purchase of such lands
but have deferred such action until the
crop of this season was more nearly ma
tured. They will find that unless they
close the deal at once that they will be
, the loser. The price of every piece of
deeded land in Sioux county will ad
vance sharply within the next sixty
days, and those who expect to purchase
at low prices will have to get action on
themselves or the opportunity will be
It was so dry in the vicinity of Beat
rice tliat the board of trade held a meet
ing and appointed a committee to go to
Nelson, Neb., to secure the services of
Rainmaker Melbourne in order to save
the crops. Before the arrangements
were completed a good rain fell. The
people do not propose to be caught nap
ping and will offer Melbourne induce
ment!, to assist nature in furnishing
needed moisture for crops.

A few days ago Frank Melbourne, the
.rainmaker, made a contract with parties
in Colorado to produce rain. He estab
lished himself near Holyoke, and went to
.work and within the time prescribed by
-the contract a rain fell covering and area
Of about 17,000 square miles. Those in
terested jn the experiment express satis-
action therewith and the farmers and
business men are happy as rain was
.needed and that which was produced by
Melbourne makes the crop prospects
.good. Some do not believe that Mel
;bourne produces the rain, but those who
(have been in a position to watch his
,work are firm in the belief that it is'
through his efforts that the rain is pro
duced. From the success he has had it
is but reasonable to give him credit for
the rainfall which has followed his tests,
.and should he prove beyond a doubt that
-be can produce rain he will prove a bene
factor to the whole country. One thing
4s certain and that is that he has full
oonfldence in his ability to furnish rain
According to agreement.
Whkreas, The interests of our county
especially demands the active co-oni-tion
of all good citizens, therefore be it
.WtvoVThat we, the Independents of
Sioux county, depreciate any and all
local strife and contentions.
And as a remedy for one of the great
est evils winch effect our locality, viz.,
hi"h freight rates, we commend to our
people and ask their careful consideration
of the transportation plank of the St.
And also ask their careful considera
tion of all other questions treated in said
platform and we heartily endorse its
every demand as simple justice. We
heartily endorse Hon. O. M. Kem and
his straightforward, manly course in a
session of Congress where the majority
have stamped themselves as cowardly
and venal time-servers. We extend our
hearty approval to M. J. Weber, our
eflicie'tit county commissioner.

The Vice Presidency.
Whitelaw Reid is the second member
of the fourth estate to be honored with
the nomination of vice president by the
republican party, Schuyler Colfax being
the first. While the journalistic record
of Vice President Colfax was creditable,
it had nothing to do with bis nomination,
any more than did Mr. Blaine's record as
an editor with his nomination for the
presidency. But Mr. Reid is recognized
as a conspicuous representativee of his
profession. He never held but one oflice,
that of Minister to France, and that was
bestowed upon him in recognition of his
services and position as editor of the
New York Tribune. He is not a politi
cian or a statesman, in the usuai sense
of those terms, but an editor, with all
which that word implies. He has risen
