OF HAARRISON WAS
LAST SATURDAY SEPT. ioth.
The nomination of Sioux county's can
didate, Hon. Lewis Gerlach, by the
Democratic and Populist representative
conventions held at Crawford last Satm
day the 10th inst, was an honor well be
stowed. And in so doing the Journal
believes wise judgement was displayed,
not because the candidate was a Sioux
county man though this county, of
right was entitled to that place on the
ticket but because, Hon. Lewis Gerlach
is a gentleman, who's reputation, either
in politics or business is above reproach,
and the Journal respectfully duties any
body to point to a single instance, where
Mr. GeVlach has, knowingly or other
wise miritreated a friend or neighbor, and
at all times respects and honors his poli
tical enemies with gentlemanly conduct.
In fact he is an ideal gentleman in every
way morally, socially, intelectually and
we know be is politically; he is respect
ed and esteemed by every body having
the good fortune to make his acquaint
ance, it is sale to say that neighbor
Gerlach has'nt an entmv. so far as we
know in the wide world.
The Journal believes now, as stated
in these columns about six weeks ago,
that there is no man in this district bis
peer and that no mistake could possibly
be made as a result of his nomination.
The closing of the polls November 8th,
will verify the correctness our state
ment. If Mr. Gerlach is elected nad there is
not a shadow of a doubt but that he will
he will without doubt distinguish him
self down at Lincoln this next winter on
the floor of the house. In the nomina
tion of Mi Gerlach the three refrom
parties have a candidate to whom they
.n point with pride in his sterling worth
Soon as Mr. Oerlach's opponent has
been nominated he will commence the
campaign and, if his opponent wishes he
will make a joint debate campaign.

The democrats demanded an "income
tnx" as a war revenue measure. The
Republicans denied this to the people,
but take everything used by the labor
The republican administration must
have nearly worn their finger nails off
trying to dig the last penny out of the
state treasury before they were forced
to get out by an honest set of officials.
J. Pierpoint Morgan is now trying to

In the office of public lands and build
ings for the last 18 months under repub
lican rule was like this:
Receipts of the office (Repub) 1313,073.03
In favor of Reform Rule 1358,060,49
We noticed in the Sunday World-Herald
an account of the representative con
vention held at Crawford last Saturday.
The correspondent whoever he is says,
victory in this district is an assured
fact, and he estimates Hon. Lewis Oer
lach's majority will be 800.
During the republican administration
in Nebraska, state warrants were from
5 to 7 per cent, below par. During 18
months of reform administration, state
warrants are at a premium of per
rent., thus making a saving to the state
in 18 months of 173.250 from the state
treasurers ofllce alone.
During the campaign of 1806 the re
publican party leaders were telling the
voters of this state that the credit of
Nebraska would be destroyed and that
capital would cease to come in and
what was herJ would be driven out.
But, instead of drivjog capital out, P. D.
Armour has put up a 13,000,000 packing
house in S. Omaha and besides there has
been millions of dollars invested in Ne
braska since then. The fact of the
matter lit that since '98, the republicans
cannot point to a single instance where
money or business institutions have been
driven out as a result of Demo-pop state
The increase in the state debt under
republican rule for two yearn '03-6 is
11,275,131 36, and the actual decrease in
the state debt under the demo-pop rule
for 23 months is, 1771.200 53, hence the
difference iu favor of the reform state
administration is 12,046,934 89. If the
above is true (and it must be as It is offi
cial), can it be possible that the people
of this state would be willing to return
that same party that increased their tax
es over a million and a quarter of dollars
besides stealing over half that mucb
The Journal believes the people in
Nebraska as a whole are like individuals
and will not permit the republican party
to have another opportunity to steal
them blind the second time. If the re
form administration has been able in so
short space of time to wipe out three
quarters of a million dollars in state
debt without even raisin? the taxes of
the people, then why should not the fu
sion state ticket be re-elected this fall?
they are all clean, honest, upright men.
Two years more of the reform adminis
tration in this state and its financial con
dition will be in the best shape since the
state was admitted to the Unoin.
Some Republicans are like the Chicago
editorial writer who was ordered by hit
chief to write an article against the
silverites and brought out two or three
columns of abuse and mud-slincintr.
The chief called him upon the carpet and
proceeded to read him a lecture, and
began by saying: "See, here, what we
want is argument, not abuse;" and the
reply was: "D n it, abuse is the only
argument we've got."

had no time to see a doctor for it was
a case of rush and rush night and day

lieve that at one critical time this medi

army, for if the packers bad been unable
to work there would have been no wo
of getting supplies to the front. There
were no roads that a wagon train could
use. My comrade and myself had the
good fortune to lay in a supply of this
medicine for our pack-train before we
left Tampa and I know in four cases it
absolutely saved life."

How to Tell To-Morrow'a
A short, clear, entertaining and
valuable lesson for amateur weather
observers is given in the September
Ladift Home Journal in the form of
a series of pictures of clouds, with brief
explanatory notes. The page is well
worth examining and saving, for there
is nothing in the article which would
not be understood by anybody, even a
child and a little close study will make
one qualified to form better opinions
than ever before as to what the weather

Florida is the home of the famous
Easter Lily. During the blooming sea

white with their beautiful, lily white
flowers, and thousand of them are picked

fine lot of the lily bulbs dug, and
brought them with me; they make love

Any one who would like two or three of
these lily bulbs can have them by send
