BROWNYILLE, NEBRASKA, THURSDAY, OCT, 6, 1881,
Tho following is amonRst the Wiush
ington teloRrams. Probably tho dream
of .some lliijlity politician:
lloport coinos from Xow York that
Arthur lias tendered a place in his cabi
net to .Judge Lapham, tlu new Senator
from Now York. This would leave to
Gov, t'ornt'll an opportunity to call a
special session to elect a senator, open
ing a way for Conkling.
Tho Democratic press, and some of
the other kind -tho half and half sort
like tho Chicago Tribune niu much
afraid that President Arthur will not
"follow tho lino of policy marked out
by bis predecessor." And the most
worrying thing, to hear their rack
et, is tho dread that Dlalno will go out
1 of tho cabinet. Wo would like to know
what JMaino has over done for the
Democrats that they should profess
I such lovo for him. As Secretary Blaine's
record for tho past twenty years shows
him to be a radical Republican, and
that ho has hit Democracy on every
occasion he has had, and often making
occasions to got in lit avy licks, wo con
clude that Deinocriicy has no lovo
whatever for him, and that they have
no other interest in tho matter than
tho engendering of strifo and division
in tho Republican party. As to any
political action President Arthur may
contemplate, be certainly will not seek
advice in the Democratic party. And
it may bo depended on that ho will do
whatever bo can to unito factions
against tho "common onoiny" and build
up the Republican party. And 'tis said
that ho is no slouch in the political
From all but tho most stalwart of
tho stalwart papers that are already
bogining to arise foreboding questions
as to wliat tho policy of tho president
will bo, as to bis ability to do what be
may desire, and bis intention to por
fotm what tho peoplo may desire;
whether bo will follow in that just
course which it has been bolieved was
planned by that predecessor whom tho
nation laments, or whether, casting
gradually from him, as ho fools more
assured of his followingthoso bumper
ing bonds of public opinion which may
impedo tho freo course of his inclina
tion, ho will not bring upon the coun
try and civil sorvico all those scandal
ous spectacles which woro tho shatno of
tho era of '(18-70. -St. Joe Uazdtv.

SerVICO WasilOVOr before morn thorotll'll-
ly regarded than during tho "era of '08
70." Had tho Gazette referred to "the
shame of the era" of Jbichanan and tho
eight provious years of Democratic rule,
thoro might bo somo point to its re
marks. Tho Gazette draws on its im
agination for something to say about
"foreboding questions as to what the
policy of the President will be," as con
cerns the Republican party. Presi
dent Arthur is a Republican, tried and
true. Tho futuro of the party is to a
great extent dependent upon his course,
a fact that ho well knows; and being
patriotic, honest and capablo desiring
the best interests of tho nation over
which ho has been called to presido,
and knowing thoso interests will bo
best subserved by a continuance of tho
Republican party in power, he will
do nothing to disrupt it, but overs -thing
to bring together discordant ele
ments, cement thorn, and make the,
party strong. And wo have bis letter
of acceptance. If ho curries out so far
as is in his power the policy thoreln
foreshadowed, and upon which tho
peoplo accepted him, he will bo closo
onougb that "just course which it has
been believed was planned by that
predecessor whom tho nation laments,"
to suit tho party that elected him.
And this ho is certain to do. IIo will
fostortho present sound financial basis
pf tho govornmont; punish star route
and othorthiovos; protect tho frontier
from savages as far as ho can with tho
littlo insignillcant army loft him by
tho Democratic Congress; do his duty
within tho limits of tho law to socuro
freo and fair elections in all tho States
and especially in tho south where for
tho past fifteen years tho democracy
have in no instanco allowod a freo ex
pression at tho ballot box. The'so, and
many other propor things promised by
Oarfiold.oxpccted of Arthur, nro doubt
less thocauso of the "forebodings" that
disturb tho Democracy.
Wo glean as follows from tho Calvert

had a SO foot addition to his store, two
HLorios high, torn to atoms, and a num

Shenandoah is fortunato in having se
cured tho services of such an able in
structor. Church IIowo and Mr, Xixon have
purchased the Sago and WiUon farms,
and will lay out an addition to Sheridan
that will reduce tho distance between
tho two towns nearly a half mile.
These gentlemen seem determined that
Sheridan and Calvert shall grow to

Con rier says: "I can assuro you that
tho advent of tho M. P. has Increased
tho value of our real estato greatly,
Since tho first settlement of the boaut'i

out of place for us to rejoice becauso
tho want will soon bo supplied."

It is a dillloult matter for tompcr
anco principles to prevail when church
mombers givo their names and other
wise assist in establishing saloons.
Such members disgrace the church to
which they belong, and any church
that tolerates such mombers brings
Itself into disrepute. They dhould be "
kicked out, iustanter.
Saloons and good society, good mor
als, purity of life, to say nothing of
Christianity.are as directly antagonistic
as heaven and bell.
Just think of a professed adherent of
tho teachings of tho Savior of tho world
favoring tho establishing of saloons,
murdor mills, pitfalls, for tlio destruc
tion of their neighbors. Ah, not only
favoring but performing acts and doodH
to bring thorn into existence. Such aro
serving tho devil instoad of tho Lord.
And tho church discipline that winka
at Mich flagrant outrage on tho chris
tian common law that pervades Chris
tendom and is accepted by infidel as

brings thoir church into contempt, de
rision, scorn. Tho church, so far as
ovort acts are concerned, is supposed

not the converse.
