-HIS CLAIUS -HIS PUBLIC acts -should
HE EE SE-LLECTED.
As we remarked last week, wc had
determined to take a position aaainsl
noicne in the Congressional canvass,
and regret that circumstances now
compel- us to depart from that deter
mination.. Those familiar, and inti
mately acquainted with us will bear
testimony that it is contrary to our
nature to array ourself against any
one, in any way, or for any purpose.
Oar apology for writing the present
article, if any be necessary, is the
heartfelt interest wc feel in the welfare
and ultimate prosperity of thi3 country
and it3 people convictions of duty as
a journalist; one standing as it were
upon the watchtowcr of public interest.
We feel that in remaining silent, and
not crying aloud in not sounding the
trumpet of warning in time of danger
wc would prove traitorous to the posi
tion we occupy among our fellow citi
zens. When we. look around us and
e c iuai our peupie are uuuig ucceiveu
that portion of them, too, who
are new comers who are not personal
ly acquainted with the man his char
acteristics hi3 historv his nets- hi3
.'Iirewtl cimiiirjg manner of -. working
upon the-feelings and sympathies of
8trangcr3. For it itf a notorious fact
in proof of which we ask only that
you cast your minds eye for a moment
around, you -that nine out of every
ten of Chapman's supporters are new
comers, entirely unacquainted with the
man or his public acts; and further
that nearly or quite all who have here
tcfore.becn his most ardent supporters
are now his most violent opposers.
We repeat that when we look around
us and see such a state of affairs, and
are possessed of the mass of facts
which ought to convince any reflectin
mind to the contrary, we cannot longer
remain silent. To convince the public
. of the sincerity of our representations
that we have no personal feelings to
gratify in the defeat of Mr. Chapman
no "friends to reward or enemies to
punish," we will briefly state the rela-
lations between Mr. C. and ourself up
to the opening of this campaign.
. . When wc arrived in Nebraska and
commenced the publication of the
'"Advertiser" Mr. Chapman's seat was
undergoing a contest in Congress. We
examined carefully the grounds, or
basis, of contest, the testimony pro
duced, and as lawyers say, "according
to the evidence in the case," which
wasallby which we could be governed,
-came to the conclusion that Chap
man was honestly and justly entitled
to the seat; and have never had
reason to change that opinion. We
felt equally convinced, however, at
that time, and do yet, that had Judge
Bennet contested the seat on the
ground of ineligibility, the result
" would have been to the contrary, and
Bennet would have been the Delegate
from Nebraska. As evidence that we
arrived at this conclusion from no
feelings of personal or friendly desire,
wc state further that wc had not then
never ever having seen him never in
fait since have we met him but twice.
Arriving at these conclusions we took
a position in favor of him, and
for which by the way we received more
than one lecture from our friends in
tliis county. During his term as Dele
gate from this Territory, we have been
with him upholding him, endeavoring
as n journalist and as a private citizen
as one feeling that Nebraska was
our home, and to be that of our chil
dren, and theirto come to render his
administration useful and honorable to
the Territory. Wo felt that he in the
scat was the Delegate the representa
tive of Nebraska ours in common
jwith all other citizens, Personally,
we have been his friend, and had reason
to suppose he wi:3 ours; wc have
done him acts of , kindness he has
done others for us in return. In short
wc had supposed that relations of the
most friendly nature existed between us.
At the opening of the present Con
gressional canvass feeling as wc before
remarked, that we v.Tith hundreds and
thousands of others who had left the
comfort.?, conveniences, educational
and religious privileges, and many other
blessings of the States under which
wc had lived and been used to; and
and had brought our wives and children
our all to the wilds of Nebraska,
subjecting ourselves to the toils priva
tions, hardships and all else akin, inci
dents to the settling of anew country,
to make for ourselves new homes, and
lay for those to - come after us a foun
dation for future prosperity, and useful
ness Feeling thus, and reflecting upon
our relations with the general govern
ment; impressed with the importance
of having a Delegate in Congress who
is of us, and with us a. resident of the
Territory especially who understands
our wants, and will work for omt gene
ral interests; the question in our mind
wa.s who shall that man be ? Knowing
as Mr. C. claimed in his speech in
this city it to be customary when
men have honorably discharged the
duties incumbent upon them in sta
tions of trust, honor, or profit, and
to uso a common expression have
"gotten the hang of the thing" to con
fer such positions the second time, we
were forced to examine first Mr. Chap
man's claims. Wc did so, and now
propose giving to the voters of South
Platte and especially of Nemaha county
our reasons for arriving at the conclu
sion that Mr. Chapman is the last of all
the aspirant3, upon whom our suffrages
should bestowed. In bo doinr we wish
it distinctly understood that wc deal
in facts uncontrovcrtable facts not
condescending to use personal slang,
low abuse, and the hundred and one
low toned modc3 of expressing an
honest difference of opinion, resorted
to by too many men in electioneering.
Thero are cany charges brought
against candidates against Mr. Chap
man that we believe, yea that wc know
to be untrue. We know that we are
addressing a reading, reflectin.reason-
isV high-toned, hontst, honorable
people, who when appealed to with
facts and figures, aro not only willing,
but anxious to hear, examine and de
termine, prompted only by a sincere
desire to arrive at proper conclusions
as to matters of public policy, and
courses to be pursued best calculated
to advance the general interest.
The two great reasons and which
we think ought to be sufucient for any
one why we cannot support Mr.
Chapman are that
1st. He is not eligible for the position
of Delegate to Congress from Nebraska,
according to our laws.
2d. He has been sectional in Jus
efforts and accomplishments while in
Congress, lias, really, not secured the
appropriation of a single dollar South
of the Platte river; ichile in the. immedi
ate vicinity of half a million of dollars
have been appropriated North of the
In maintainance of our first position,
and to make the matter perfectly plain
to all, we copy from the "Laws of
the Territory of Nebraska," second
Session, page 70, chapter 27, sections
1 and 5. '
Sec. 1. No person shall be elected
a delegate to Congress of the United
States from this Territory who shall
not have resided therein at least twelve
months before the time of voting.
Sec. 5. The term residence, as used
in this chapter, shall be understood so
as to exclude all married persons from
office, unless their families are living
in this Territory, and have their habi
tation and domicils therein, and when
applied to young, or unmarried men,
to their continued abiding place, and
where they have their washing, bed
So much for the law; now to the testi
mony. At the election for the first Delegate
from Nebraska Mr. Chapman was an
nounced by friends who came a few
days in advance of him, as a candidate
for Congress, before he had ever set foot
on Nebraska soil. He arrived here
about six weeks before the election;
as a candidate, and defeated by Mr.
Giddings as all well know. The next
day after the returns were all in and
counted, he left for his residence in
Ohio, and did not return again until
just 37 days before the next election
had not Icon in the Territory long
enough to vole, to say nothing of being
eligible a3 a candidate: ThCj election
came off, the race being between Chap
man and Bennett, Chapman as is also
known was elected.' Immediately
after receiving his certificate of elec
tionnot longer "-than ten days he
left an;ain for his home in Ohio. After
the adjournment of Congress last
season he came out here and remained
about two months, returned to Ohio,
and is not again seen in Nebraska,
until near the middle of May last,
when in company with his wife he
came out here, and has remained until
the present day. It will not be at all
out of place for us just here to state
that his wife accompanied him on his
visit to this Territory two years ago,
just before the election returned with
him to .their home in Elyria, Lorain
co., Ohio, where she has since remained
at least bo far as a. residence in Ne
braska is concerned until this last
May, she again accompanied Mr. Chap
man to Nebraska. This is the extent
of Mr. Chapman's residence in Ne
braska all told. If every day, hour,
and minute he has spent in Nebraska
and to which also may be added the
sojourn of his lady be added to
rbthert will not make him eligible
for the position of Delegate to Con
gress, lie has .never even voted in
Now these are a plain statement of
facts, made not simply to defeat Mr.
C. or to gratify personal feeling; but
our grand object is to prevent Ne
braska from being imposed upon, by
again bein represented in Congress
by a man who is a non-rcsidenf, one
who has not come here, and icith us
become a squatter endured with us
the hardships, toils, fatigues and pri
vations of a frontier life to use a
familiar expression, he has not "helped
tramp dozen the nettles and hazel brush"
and cleared out new honiC3 with us, and
thus contributed Jus part in aiding to
transform these western wilds into
garden spots. While we have been
thus depriving ourselves and families,
and thus laboring, Jtc has been loung
ing in the lap of luxury, convenience,
and ease. Voters of Nebraska, is he
the man for you ? He has not the
practical knowledge of your wants, to
represent you properly, and there is
no use talking to the contrary.
But to our second point, which is,
that wo assert that in the neighbor
hood of a Jialf miltioiyof dollars have
been appropriated hp the Territory of
Nebraska anil net me dollar of iJiat
sum SoufJijrf tJtc Platte river. .
As Mr Chapman 'himself only
claim3 one appropriation for South
Platte, it is unnecessary for us to ad
duce proof relative to any other. lie
claimed in his speech here that the
$300,000 appropriated at the last Ses
sion of Congress to construct a waggon
road from Ft. Kearney via the South
Pass of the Rocky Mountains and
Great Salt Lake Valley, to the eastern
portion of the State of California is a
South Platte appropriation. Now we
propose very briefly to show to the
contrary. And in order that the
reader may see for himself, and know
that we are not talking "merely to be
heard" wc ask him to spread before
you a map of Nebraska. Know then,
in. the first place, that New Fort Kear
ney is a military post; is now the only
interior point in Nebraska, at any
reasonable distance from the Missouri
river, consequently every project look
ing through, or into the interior of the
Territory directs to that point, which
happens by accident," o& Mr. C. said
about some of his Bilb, to be situated
immediately on the South Bank of the
Platte river. Now to the Road. In
the first place an appropriation of
50,000 was granted by Congress to
construct a military road row OmaJta
City to New Fort Kearney. At the
next Session of Congress the $300,000
claimed by Mr. Chapman, as a South
Platte appropriation, was granted to
construct a waggon road from Fort
Kearney to California. South of the
Platte Mr. C. disclaims procuring
the first appropriation of 50,000 but
that Mr. Giddings procured it. North
of the Platto he claims that he really
obtained it that ho lobied the Bill
through. We care not, and it matters
not who obtained it. That appropria
tion together with the last one of
300,000 are simply two appropria
tes to construct a road from Omalia
City to California. It has always been,
and is yet, regarded as such by North
Platte people, and all others who have
examined the subject, and you can
make nothing else of it. In. fact the
overland route from Omaha to Cali
fornia along whichthis road will run
docs not cross tJie Platte river at Fort
Kearney. It follows the northern
bank for near or quite one hundred
: miles West of that point before cross-
ing. drtre it then crosses only the
NcpYforh of the Platte and bears off
in a northerly direction to intersect
and connect with the Nebraska Central
Rail Road Line, hich leaves the
Missouri river 75'miles above Omaha,
and also the'Sioux City Route about
tho same disjance still further north
of that, making a grand centreing of
nortJicrn routes &t Ft. Laramie and from
thence to California. Again we say
examine your map, and reflect that
Ft. Kearney the starting point of this
appropriation and the only reason it
is claimed as i South Platte appropri
ation is three hundred arid twenty
miles" in the interior simply a mili
tary stationthe country so, poor and
barren that the (jroyrnment has not yet
been able to raise sufficient farm pro
ducts to supply the soldiers stationed
there. See if by any figures or cal
culations, or any , other plan you may
adopt, you can make a South Platte
appropriations, out of it. Tho real
fact is; that road will- never cross to
the South side of the Platto river.
There arc no inducements for it to do
so no settlements, nor never can be.
To talk of crossing the Platte river,
a stream so remarkably and univer
sally known to be difficult, either to
ferry or bridge, simply to get over to
the Fort, and say one is on the South
side of PlatteisTcaWj too ridiculous to
think- about. Even admit that the
road does cross over at that point
to the South side of the river, " and
right back again on to the North side
-both crossingsiwithin a short distance
of f each other )(allftbo crossing ever
done tiere will;bedono both ways on
the same Bridge or Ferry) and what
earthly use or benefit can South Platte
derive from it? 'Ti3 more than folly
to claim this as a South Platte appro
priation 'Tis still worse to admit it
to be; and we acknowledge that Ave
are at a loss to imagine tho amount of
assurance a man must possess to get
up before an intelligent, enlightened,
thinking audience and ask them to
Relieve it to be such.
Fellow citizens and voters of Ne
braska: we havo presented you with
evidence with ifdsthathavenotbecn,
nor cannotbe, successfully contradict
ed and submit them to you as a jury,
and ask you the question: Can you
with these facts staring you in the face
suffering under the neglect that wc
of the South Platte can't help but feel,
in the way of appropriation having
.your interests, your children's, and that
of your country at -hear tjcan ; you
consistently vote for B. B Chapman
n e Kiiu w ou cscnnoi -we Know you
As to the other candidates in field,
wo have to say, that as to simple quali
fications, there is perhaps but little, if
any difference. We support Col.
Rankin for reason we have before given.
His position the past two years in the
Territory has necessarily placed him
in universal and intimate intercourse
with the entire people; consequently
he could not well help having a perfect
and thorough knowledge of our wants.
Ho i3 a bona fide resident a fellow
squatter. Came to the Territory two
and a half years ago, with his family,
took a wild claim erected a cabin there
on with Jus own Jiands and has resided
on it until the present day. We are
more intimately acquainted with him
than any, of the other candidates-
know him to be possessed of far more
than a usual amount of energy and
indomitable preseverence. That he
has an acquaintance, a position and
influence with the present administra
tion, equal at least, to any other candi
date in the race, no one will for a mo
And further, if wo may bo allowed
to form an opinion a3 to how men arc
to be governed to any extent, because
of their individual interest and we
must confess that we are all more or
less governed in some degree at least,
by individual interests wexof the
South Platte, and more particularly
Nemaha county, have a right to expect
more at the hands of Col. Rankin than
any other of the candidates now be
fore us. We have no candidate
South of the Platte, and although Col.
Rankin resides immediately on the
north bank of the Platte, he owns
more property, and really has more in
terest in the progress and ultimate
prosperity of South Platte and Ne
maha county, than could'reasonablv be
expected of any of tho other candi
dates. In conclusion we say, wc have given
our reasons for not supporting Chap
man, and our reasons for supporting
Rankin, and acknowledge frankly, as
you will observe from the bearing of
this article, that our. great object is to
defeat CJiapnan, and that we are
prompted to make this offort solely,
from the , purest motives; nothing but
the deep and abiding interest wc feel
in the welfare of Nebraska could in-
duco us to make this j appeal. v e

to those' who feel thus with us, and are
prompted to: action by" the same im
pulses. . -
v Inconciusion. We ask you to ponder
theso facts before you vote, and then
cast vour vote according to the die
tates of an honest conscience.
. WALK UP TO THE HACK. ' ; -
We '"are informed that Mr. Chapman
while in our city last week, and in other
portions' of the ? county; after he left
here, reported that the editor of this
paper had offered to sell him the vote
of -Nemaha county, at the coming
election for an appointment" in one of
the offices in 'this Land District, and
that he had. a letter from us to him to
that effect, which was in his satchel!,
or he had forgotten, and left it at home
sometimes ho told it oneway and
sometimes another but 'didn't show
it to any one. . Did he intend this as
a reason ,why Nemaha county should
go for him? and i3 that the way he does
business? If so, he should not com
plain at the price not being paid, when
he failed to comply with the terms of
. But seriously, for this i3 too serious
a matter to joke about? this is cer
tainly a remarkable singular way for
a gentleman one occupying the posi
tion Mr. Chapman docs to electioneer.
If it were true, it is entirely foreign
to the matter in question, and has
nothing to do as to the race between
Chapman and Col. Rankin or any other
candidate; We don't feel particularly
alarmed as to the injury this report
may inflict upon us aa an individual.
We have been in the Territory and
Nemaha county, full as long as Mr.
Chapman and are willing to trust such
reports from such sources with our past
acts and conduct, where we are best
known at home.
We know that betting is said to be
"a fools argument" therefore we never
bet outright. But in order that there
may be 'no doubt as to the falsity or
correctness of this report, and that
our neighbors may all satisfy them
selves that we are either not the man
to attempt thus unwarrantably to
meddle with tJieir rights; or that we
are a man who would barter our neigh
bor's and friend's rights to secure for
ourselves individual advantages or ad
vancement; we", make t the following
proposition. . .Firtj.Kowever.AYQ 4$n7

We have placed in the hands of Dr.
IIolladay, mayor of this city, 50,
subject to the order of the Supcrin
tendent of Common Schools of this
county, in case a genuine letter from
ourself to Mr. Chapman offering to
sell him the vote of Nemaha county
for a position in the land office, or any
other consideration or any other evi
dence whatever, verbal or written 13
produced, satisfactory to the minds of
a jury of 5 or 12 men to be selected
by both parties or their friends that
we have ever offered to sell Nemaha
county, or intimated that wc could
do so if we desired, either to Mr.
Chapman, or any one else. And
further to satisfy doubts, if there be
any, as to whether we are making this
proposition for "buncum" or not, we
have placed 10 additional in the

ANOTHER TACT FOIt THE YCUNO HEN OF
The Territory of Nebraska as a Con
gressional District, is entitled to the ap
pointment of two Cadets to the United
States Military Academy at West Point.
Let us see who have received these ap
pointments. Mr. Chapman as the Dele
gate frotn; Nebraska as do all Congress
men from! their respective Districts
makes the. selection, and the President
The first appointment of Cadet for
Vebraska was confered upon a young Mr.
rLarrirner of Pennsylvania, whose resi
dence if any he had in the west, was at
Council Bluff, Iowa, where however he had
been but a very short time. As to his
being a resident of Nebraska ; he had
been over to Omaha three times, on three
different days simply to use a familiar
expression among the ladies making
calls. He never spent 24 hours in Nebras
ka. He is now one of our Rerresenta-
tives at West Point.
The other appointment was conferred
upon a young Mr. Johnson, resident of
Elyria,' Lorain Co. O. JIr, Cliapman's
residence who Mr. Chapman brought out
herewith him last fall, and was in the
Territory, all told, about three mmths,
Is net this complimentary to the young
men of Nebraska. Are there no young
men in our territory capable of represent
ing us at West Point? .
THINK OF IT.
Jud "ins from the number of candidates,
Blowers and' Strikers, Log Rollers, &c,
from almost every part of the Territory,
who have made their appearance m cur
county, and held forth to the " dear peo
ple " the past wcelc, we conclude that
Nemaha county and her vote, is regarded
3 of considerable importance in the ap-
proacmng election. Under these circum
stances, is not her position an all impor
tant one ? , Does it not devolve upon our
people to examine tee?, to reficrt, to cast
her vote for the. man best calculated to
serve the true interests oi Nebraska! that
she may not be charged hereafter with
being the cause of inflicting a lasting
wrong upon the entire Territory. We
know7 our people are a reasoning people,
who are not to be gulled or governed by
the simple effect of an oratorical appeal,
or the magnifying of imaginary faults by
these roving stump speakers. Be exceed
ingly careful, friends and neighbors how
you act how you vote. But you need
not our -friendly admonition. -We know
you will do your duty.
Mr. Chapman claims superior influ
ence with the administration at Wash
ington. We call attention to the fact
that he procured the appointment of
Mr. Robertson as Post master at
Omaha, Mr, Gibbs for the Land Office
at Nebraska city, and the appointments
were both revoked before the gentle
men obtained possession of their posts.
DON'T YOU BELIEVE IT.
Don't you believe any such reports that
Col. Rankin has drawn off or will -draw
off. His prospects never were brighter
than to-day. He entered the race to run
it through, and will doit; and what is
more is sure of being elected. Look out for
all kinds of reports on election day.
Rankin men stand to your posts ; and vic
tory is sure.
