Thu growing wheat of Dakota

Mr. Jacobs, for -whom tho Democrats
havo been voting at Albany, haa de
clined to have his name further used
as a candidate for Senator ; and Clavk
sou X. Potter has been chosen to fill
Senator (Ymkling's midden percep
tion of tho distressful situation of Un
people under tho grasp of corporate
monopoly comes most inopportune for
that gentleman. C. C. Courier.
His perception may havo been sud
den but it is not recent. Mr. Conkling
has always stood for the people as
against oppressions of monopolion.
Secretary vindom remarked while
in Chicago that no man regretted more
deeply than President f.arlleld tho Re
publican controversy in Xow York.
Yes -and such talk is twaddlo of a
very disgusting sort, in view of the
fact that tho presidont forced the con
troversy, and is suported by minions
with bribe money in their pockets to
defeat the stalwarts.
Recently tho Lincoln Globe charged
Mr. Cropscy with having forged the
names of Judgo Weaver, Hon Jim.
Laird, and county treasurer ITelmer,
to a telegram regarding the Lincoln
poslolllce. And now come tho honor
able gentlemen abovo named, each and
everyone of them and over their own
names show that tho If lobe simply in
dulged its perverse disposition to
slander its bettors.
On tho 23th of May, F. 15. Thurber.
the leader of the reform transportirlion
movement in Xow York, and the
leader of ;the anti-monopolists of Un

Tho convention for the
meat and utilization of tho
river, which met at Council Bluffs on
tho 21 inst., was represented by a large
number of gentlemen of business and
and brains from various localities in
Xobraska, Kansas, Dakota, Missouri
and Iowa. Senator Saunders was
present, and opened the speech making
by an exceedingly pertinent address.
The organization of a company or as
sociation was effected by the election
of Hon. L. Van Horn, of Kansas City,
president; Thos. Gibson, of Omaha,
and I-J. II. 0'dell, Council Bluffs, sec
re'.arics. From the sort of men this con
vention was composed of, wo would
think it the beginning of a great
project that will lead to immense

There are those who cry that it is
"the country against one man" and
that Senator Colliding. It would be
well for tho republican party if it was
so, but it is not. Roscoo Conkling lias
staunch friends in tho republican
party and ones who will follow his
fortunes by tens of thousands not only
in the Empire State but in tho whole
country. He lias been a leader too
long to be ignored by a breath, and
whether re-elected or not, ho will be a
power in American polities as ho has
been for many years. Omaha Tele-
Conkling now haa moro and warmer
friends than ho over had before.
Thousands formerly not particularly
friendly toward him and only admirers
of his great ability and pure political
life, havo been driven to his side by
the ungenerous and vindietlvo manner
in which ho has been treated by tho
man whom ho so greatly assisted to
power. And while persecution has
turned men to him it has cemented
and crystalizedthc positive friendship
of others. So tho Tcleram truly says
that he is yet destined to bo a power
in politics whether re-elected or not.
BKOWN YTLLE, NEBRASKA, THURSDAY,
Since our predictions ronanHm? Mini
A(lnrtisiri probable Intentions wero
put in type, we are handed a sub
scription paper which is being circu
lated by Al. Bwan, soliciting subscrip
tions and patronage for Fall-brother

whom he has ever been kicking, tho
paper to be printed in tho new town of
Calvert. On what grounds thev pre

reliable business men stand linn, and
In a decided voice say, "we will not

Tho transient ndventurors who now
run tho obovo named papr, would be
passable bulldozers in South Carolina,
were they not too cowardly to indulgo
their inherent instincts. Like a couplo
ot sliltopokes, having lit down in that
locality they seem inclined to mon
opolise tho wholo country; thus
demonstrating their poverty of com
mon sense by opposing tho enterprises
of people who havo boon idontitlcd
with tho county and its interests for a
quarter of a century. "Wo aro really
glade that they aro just what thoy
scorn to bo impotent to accomplish
anything more romarkablc than to cx
e.xhlbit their own pondorous ears, for
which they have a peculiar gift. Our
boys, who are thu innocent cause of so
much worrying on tho part of thoZ'cw,
inform us that their project of start
ing a papor at Calvert has met with tho
most hearty approval by gentlemen
who propose to start In business there,
and nowhere havo they ever met
with better encouragement than right
in tho town of Sheridan amongst tho
business men. So much for the sense

tract. And to furthor show the popu
larity of tho proposed "Calvkut
Col'kiek," tho proprietors aro now
having a building erected on a lot of
their own as an olllco out of means
already procured and suiiacribed. It
might bo beneficial to th'oVRct boobies,
to go down to tho town branch and
soak their heads.

Robertson is notorious for bolting tho

in Xew York politics, bolioves in

to have been bossed by Roscoo Conk

It appeals by Davenport's confession
that ho did tell Senator Stratum he
would bo expected to voto against
Conkling and Piatt if appointed
United States Maishal. but it was I
entirely without the President's i
knowledge or authority, as is clearly
shown. Presidont Garlleld lias suffer-
ed much by tho conduct of indiscreet
J r lends, and can only bo blamed for
choosing such people as his advisers.
A Jad aged 11 at Geneui, Xeb., by
the namo of Gable, committed suicide

Tho neighbors say his futhor was very
cruel to him, and ho killed himself to
avoid a whipping the old man had
promised to give him that evening.

Johnny Davenport, of Xow
York, has also boon caught in offering
a bribe. Ho offered tho Marahalship
to Senator Strahn if ho would vote
against Conkling. Davonport said ho
ho was "In with Garlleld" and could
llxitall right. But Strahn declined
thoofllco and tho treachery.

Toimjka, Kno., Juno 21. Tho drug
gists' cases, involving tho construction
of a portion of tho recent temperance
law, wore deeided by tho supremo
court to-day. Tho court hold that tho
grant of power to tho probate judge to
Issuo penults was valid; that tho act
was not unconstitutional, although it
restrietod to ono class, namely, the
druggists, tho right to secure a porniit
and sell intoxicating liquors. It also
held that the law did not apply to
cologne, bay rum and essence of lemon,
tincture of gentin, or other articles of
established namo and charactor found
in the United States dispensatory or
other like slai dard authorits and
customary used for medical, toilet and
culinary purposes; and further, as to
cordials, bitters and other compounds
of tho ordinary intoxicating liquors,
that whether thoy wero within or
without the statute was a question of
fact, to bo settled in each particular
ease by a jury, tho test being that of
tho intoxicating liquor remaining as a
difitructivo force in the compound, al
though tho other ingredients might bo
of a medium nature.
A few weeks ago nomo saloon
keepers, or would bo saloon keopors, of
Kansas, had a druggist arrested for
alleged violation of tho prohibition
law in selling cologne, bay rum and
essenco of lemon. Tho caso was taken
boforo a judge of elastic conscience
nainod Crozlor, who sustained the
charges, maintaining that cologne, bay
rum and essence of lemon, as thoy aro
compounded with alcohol, aro intoxi
cating liquors. Ajid from this tho
Judgo argued and based an opinion
that tho law interfered with commerce,
and was thoreforo unconstitutional.
