On May 27th one of the worst cy
tokine in the history of the country
t struck St Louis, East St. Louis and a
umber neighboring towns, killing half
thoaakod people, injuring some thous
ands of Others and destroying millions of
loilara worth of property. Congress
'took action for relief, as did states, cities,
civic organizations and individuals, aud
'much was accomplished to relieve the
"iistress of the stricken city.
AH of the one term state officials hav e
been endorsed for a second terra by their
horoe counties except Ctiuschill and no
(raaM appears for the failure of Doug
lass county to endorse him except the
aspirations of others. Broatch was re
"jected as a candidate for governor and
- Willtaois endorsed for land commissioner
and Batch for treasurer. It looks as if
Rose water bad been doing a little wire
working but the indications are that it
Will avail nothing in the state conven
tion. By interposing aa objection Kern de
feated the bill for the relief of settlers
on the Union Pacific lands, by clearing a
-loud from the title thereof. Mondetl
"of Wyoming, who had charge of the
'matter showed that Nebraska was inter -"ti
to taw extent of fc6,5Hl.8 acre of
'.wbich 18,588.14 acre were in Kent's
own district. Bro. Sheldon danced a jig
'last week because Kern objected to an
.appropriation for tlie Iraus-MiMUMuppi
position to be held at Omaha, but be
'was aa nam as an oyster aa to his fool
-orvak on the land matter.

It sometimes puzzle uk greatlv to
know who is running the Timet. When
some auatere perta liolJs us up on tlie
street and deigns to reprimand us for
something we have said, or something
we have not said, we oaturully think he
must be running it, and wonder w hy lie
doe not come around Saturday and pay
off the hands but perhaps the next man
we meet will rebuke us because we did
not "hit "em harder," and then is when
tlie question arises as to which one is
running tlie paper. York Tivie.
The lirst of tlie national convention
was held by the prohibitionists at Pitts
burg last week and resulted in a split
and two tickets were put into tlie field.
The convention deciJed to have but one
pluck in the platform, that of prohibi
tion, and named Joshua Levering for
president and llale Johnson for vice
president. Those who noted the plat
form to contain planks on finance, wom
an sutfruge and other questions bolted
and nominated C. E. Rent ley, of Lincoln,
Neb., for president, and J. H. Soutligate
for vice-president, and adopted the name
of "the national party and made a plat
form of numerous planks.
Where many country newspaper pub
lisliers make a grave error is in the be
lief that money is made by neglecting or
ignoring tlie editorial column and devot
ing their entire time aud space only to
the locals. No paper dejiending alone
upon its few local readers could exist
verr long, and it is but natural that
partisans of any party having patronage
to distribute feel more of an interest in
papers that interest themselves in public
a Hairs than in tliose who do not. A
paper that advocates pnd pubhslies prin
ciples of any party is far better than one
that publishes nothinp, and the time is
coming when public patronage will not
be eonlined alone to pretenses, but rath
er to realities possessing merit, even
though it be contrary to principles held
by tlose in public office. Alliance Grip.
In the district court in Dawes county
last week a case was tried wherein a
man from Crawford sought to recover
pay from the B. & M. railroad company
for his house which was burned, claim
ing that the fire was set by one of the
passing railroad engines. Judge Green
was presiding and after two days had
been spent in hearing the rase the judge
took it out of the hands of the jury and
directed that a verdict to be returned in
favor of tlie defendant. It must have
been a rockv case when a pop judge like
Green would order a jury to return a
verdic t in favor of a railroad company
and against an individual. But tlie
matter was not allowed to drop there
for Barker was arrested on a charge of
perjury and the representatives of tlie
railroad company claim they have a
clear case against him and will push it
for all it is worth and the chances are
that Barker will have to serve a term in
the penitentiary. It has come to be that
too little importance is attached to an
oath in this part of the country, espec
ially wlien it is in matters wherein a
railroad company or tlie government is
concerned. Men who would be greatly
insulted if any one shold insinuate that
they were not honest, do not hesitate to
make oath to what is manifestly untrue,
evidently taring nothing for their lionor
and resting secure in the belief tliat they
will not he punished for their crime. If
it was as certain tliat punishment, would
follow perjury as it lias been that the
perjurer would be unmolested fewer
persons would rewort to it. If a few
should he convicted for such crimes it
would help to make some who are not
honest from principle have wholesome
fear of tlie consequences.
For State Senator.
Ainsworth Star Journal.
In our exchanges Trom every portion
of this senatorial district comes a strong
endorsement of our worthy townsman,
Syver Backey for state senator on the
republican ticket. We have known for
some time that the plan was on foot
among the republicans of northwest Ne
braska to nominate Syver Backey for
this responsible postion.
We have, however, refrained from
mentioning this matter io our paper be
cause tlie gentleman has repeatedly told
us in private conversation that he was
not a candidate for the position add had
never done anything for his own interest
in that direction. We have therefore
omitted saying anything at his own re
quest But now, since his friends are so
solicitious in urging his candidacy we
are certain that should tlie convention
see (It to nominate him he will enter
into the work of tbe campaign with the
ss.ni life and energy he lias displayed in
all his business career.
In Ainsworth and Brown county Mr.
Backey needs no recommendation from
us. His sterling integrity and pre-eminent
business ability are too well known
in this county and surrounding country.
We wish, however, to say to those who
may not be so well acquainted with him,
tliat if the party desires to nominate) a
man whose only desire is honesty and
equity to all men, tlien place before the
people a man of the people, Syver
Mr. Backey has never sought political
favor, preferring rather to spend his en
ergies in other lines. His early educa
tion was in his mother tongue, but since
coming to America twenty-five years
ago he has been a student of our lan
guage, customs and laws. Today Mr.
Backey is an American in every seoas of
the word, aod although ho has never
taken any prominent leadership in poli
tics be has always given the stauoclwst
support and aid to the principles of bis
Hsvonfblo iwport are coming in from
all over tbe district and wo therefore
fool assured in saying that Mr. Backey
will bs nominated without a disseoting
