Ttie Harrison correspondent of the
Otimlia Btt sent in & special bearing date
of July -Wth. stating that all the factions
of republicans io Sioux county were
united and the split in the party which
existed lias entirely disappeared. Tlie
person who sent that report either gross
ly misrepresented the matter or is
densely ignorant of the facts.
For weeks before the primaries Walker
and Hough had been hard at work set
ting up the pins to get control of the
primary and convention and ail know
the methods by which they work.
When the primary was held last Thurs
day they bad every one out whom tliey
could work by prejudice or pulling
strings and then found that noue of the
opposition appeared. Why was it?
Certainly not because the factional feel
ing had died out The reason waa that
those who object to obeying the orders
of Hough and Walker decided to stay
away. The result was that the Hough
and Walker delegation was elected to
the county convention. When the con
vention day came soma of those who
were elected from the outside precincts
on learning that the program was to
nominate Walker for county attorney
and Ben. Johnson for county commis
sioner declined to assist in any such
scheme and did not go to the convention
The ouly way that there is any less
factionalism is that the methods of
Hough and Walker have disgusted a
large number of those who have always
voted t!i3 republican ticket to such an
extent as to drive them out of the party.
No honest, self-respecting man can sup-
port a man with such a record, as George
Walker has for any office of trust and
the fact that he has been aided in his
schemes by Postmaster Hough who does
not hesitate to prostitute his official
position to gain his ends or down those
who do not stand in with him does not
add any dignity to tlie business.
Those who have been in control of the
machinery of the republican party in
Sioux county in the past have done a
great deal against the interests of the
party, but the nomination of George
Walker for county attorney and B. F.
Johnson, who is a pliant tool in Walker's
hands, for commissioner, is an insult to
the intelligence of the voters of Sioux
county aud a blow to every man who
will lie put on the republican ticket, for
the voters will judge the rest of the
ticket by those they know and the inevi
table result will be the loss of many
votes to the ticket.
The split in the democratic ranks in
New York shows no indications of heal
ing. Hili is sileut and Tammany is not

The republicans of the first district
have nominated Judge Alien W. Field,
of Nebraska City, as the candidate for
congress. It is considered a wise choice
and tlie indications are that Mr. Bryan
will have a chance to stay at home after
the close of his present term in congress.

The county board has instructed the
county attorney to begin civil action
against him and his bontUmeu for the
amount and also to begin criminal suit
against the ex-official.
The postponement of the anti-option
bill until the next session of congress is
a temporary victory for the grain
gamblers, but it is quite evident that it
is only temporary and the bill will be
made a law in the near future. Such a
law is demanded by the people and tliev
will not rest until it IS accomplished.

Melbourne tlie rain wizard and his as

the clouds above the arid plains of Mexi
co, can now congratulate themselves
that they escaped from that country

to cause rain in the department of Cas
tanas. Tlie alcalde of tlie town and de
partment of Castanas lias promulgated
the following resolutions:
Considering that the Supreme Creator
has not behaved well in this province, as
in the whole of last year only one shower
of rain fell; that in tins summer notwith

committee of one, upon whom devolves
the whole duty of pushing to successful
completion this great enterprise.
