722 HAUTE ELECTIONS.
The Republican gain eetimated'at from
five to seven thousand and the State is
warranted for a Republican mojority of
25,000 for Grant in November. It rath
seems ai if the "finger of Providence"
had travelled np that way. At any rate
it is astonishing bow the real honest
voters of the country daily prove that

ins STATS TICZET.
From the Omaha Republican.
The nominations made by the State
Convention are awakening an enthusi
asm which promises a grand Republican
triumph in November. Judge Crounse,
nominated for Congress, is a fine speci
men of robust and intelligent manhood ;
in the prime of life, only 38 3ears of age,
and wil! give a most favorable impiession
of Nebraska in eastern circles. He coin
menced life without any prestige from
fortune or friends, and owes his present
position to his unflagging industry and
spotless character, accompanied by
great natural abilities. When the war
of the rebellion burst upon us he marched
to the field of battle with the First New
York artillery. In '61 he was in com
mand of a battery, and was stationed at
Beverly Ford during Pope's retreat, to
hold the enemy in check. Nobly he
held his position, until his men
were decimated all his guns save one
taken, and himself badly wounded by a
shell. In ISGj he left his native State
for Nebraska, and settled in Rulo, Rich
ardson county. The same fall he was
elected to the Legislature, by a large
vote, over twelve competitors for the
same distiction. During that session
the statutes were revised by a committee,
of which Mr. Crounse was a member,
and of whose responsibilities he bore a
distinguished share. In organizing the
State, and drafting the present constitu
tion he bore a prominent part, and in
duced hi3 county to endorse the consti
tution in spite of very strong opposition.
In the spring of 1SG6 he was nominated
to his present position, as associate
judge of the supreme court, elected, and
assigned to the north district. This led
to a removal to Fort Calhoun, where he
has since resided. The preseut noniina
tion he owes to the action Jof his friend
who obeyed the spontaneous expression
of popular will His greatest strength
in the convention was furnished by the
southwest portion of the State by coun
ties having from four to seven hundred
inhabitants where three or four years
ago no population could be fuund ; sug
gesting to some of our politicians a les
son they may profitably ponder.
Our rapidly increasing population ei
ther ignores old political aspirants, or is
ignorant of them and their pet issues,
and demands the best men for positions
of honor and trust. From his own dis
trict the judge also received flattering
support. The only thing that mitigated
against his success before the convention
was the disinclination to spare him from
the sphere he had filled with so much
satisfaction to the people and honor to
himself. Among his neighbors he is
loved for his charming good nature, tem
perate habits, and manly defense of his
matured convictions. We predict that
he will secure a large vote in addition to
that cast by his own party.
Every Republican that we have sccd
since the nominations is delighted. Yes,
more than delighted with the State tick
et. The general remark is, "It could
not have been better." We have capa
ble men, and we have men, that the peo
pie know and who have been known for
years in the State of Nebraska.
CoL R. W. Furnas, our candidate for
Governor, is one of our oldest citizens,
having resided in the State some six
teen years. He is a native of Ohio, a
printer originally by trade, and for many
years editor of the Brownville Advertiser,
and of other papers. -He was several
years in the army, raising and command
ing several Indian regiments, and also
recruited and commanded the Neb-iaska
volunteer cavalry to protect the State
After acting as Indian agent for seve
ral years, he retired to his farm at
Brownville, and engaged in the nursery
business. II is success in this direction
ha3 been little less than marvelous. Ha
has given it his whole time and attention
his best thoughts and has actively
co-operated with the few men in the
State who have demonstrated that Ne
braska is one of the best fruit growing
States in the Union.
Every farmer in the Statu, nearly,
knows the name of II. W. Furnas as a
household word. He Ins not ocl.v uiv. n :
his best energies in thus developing ti
Stare, but he has been equally active as
President of the State Board of Agri
The splendid triumph at Richmond,
Ya , in which Nebraska carried off the
honors at a national exhibition is known
to all, and the triumph was mainly due
to the effort of Colonel Furnas.
Colonel Furnas is a thorongh buines,s
map, t-rompt, enerirctic and reliable. He
has the reputation among his neighbors
of being a man of the best habits anJ
the strictest integrity, as one of his
neighbors said a d-iy or two since, "his
word is a5 good as his bond."
He is in the prime of life, and his ex
perience in legislative duties most ad
mirably fit him for the office, as he fully
comprehends the whole machinery of the
We are proud of our candidate. We
offer him with the fullest confidence to
the people, and predict for him a rous

Mimas will be the next Governor cf Ne
Geo. B. Lake is the Republican can
idate for Chief Justice. We hazard
notbiog in saying that no better nomina
tion could have been made in the State,
and we add that a very large inajorifj'
believe that it would be impossibie to
make one as good.
Judge Lake, by his own energy and
self reliance, has raised himself from the
labors of the firm to take a position
among the best juiistsof the country.
His ability and integrity are undoubted ;
his character is as spotless as the robes
of his office, and he is known through
out the length and breadth of the State.
His reputation as a lawyer, legislator,
judge, and citizen is above reproach.
His experience in the different positions
and association, have given him a ripe
judgment and a varied experience. If
has cot th? highest order of tercet,
he has the most usel
ul. He is practical, j but will put his shoulder to the wheel
diligent and earnest
and always anxious fi
in his decisions. No man can always be
right ; it is not human, but in summing
up the results of his term of office on
the bench, it may be safely said that he
has made fewer mistakes aud more cor
rect decisions than often fall to the lot of
the best judicial minds of the country.
George B. Lake will be re elected by
an overwhelming majority. His nomi
nation was decian led from all parts of
the State, and his election is thus as
sured. Daniel Gantt, candidate for Associate j
Justice is a resident of Nebraska City.
He formerly resided in Omaha, and has
long been a resident of the State;
Mr. Gantt is a careful, prudent, cau
tious, conscientious man. a lawyer of
very great ability, and with a reputation
untarnished. We heard his ability dis
cussed by several of the foremost lawyer-
in the State, and the decisions were that
he had no peer as a chancery lawyer at
the Nebraska bar. Perfect integrity is
a distinguishing trait in his character,
without which, whatever may be his tal
ents, a man is a disgrace to his profession
and a blot upon the judicial office. The
lawyers are very much pleased with the
selection of Mr. Gantt, and every citzen
Samuel Maxwell, of Plattsmouth, is
also a candidate for Associate Justice
Mr. Maxwell is well and truly known
throughout the State as a man of ability,
of the greatest industry and decision of
character. His distinguished character
is good, old fashioned, down-right hon
esty. No man is more respected by his
neighbors, or loved by his iutiniate
friends, than Samuel Maxwell. He is a
good lawyer, eminently practiral in his
ideas of business, and one of the most
patient, persistent, industrious men to be
found anywhere. With his sterling abil
ity, good sense, aud sound judgment, he
cannot fail to succeed on the tench as he
has in every other pursuit of lif
John J. Gosper will make a good, re
liable, able Secretary of State. He h a
soldier, and lest a limb in the service of
his country. His habits are untxeep
tionuble, and his reputation is above re
proach. It was a just reward to a. man
who had shed his blood for his country
to be placed in so prominent a position,
and it is equally satisfactory that he has
the ability, energy and character to sus
tain the office with credit to himself, in
such a manner as to benefit his constitu
ents. We believe that always when it can
consistently be done, preference should
be given to the veterans of the arm,
John B. Weston, candidate for Audit
or, comes from Beatrice, but is well and
favorably known in the State as a banker
and also as a man of the most exact and
perfect business habits Ho had great
expeiience in the keeping of books, an
his ability to conduct the affairs of State
in the responsible position of Auditor, is
conceded by all who kuow him. Mr
Weston is a man of hish character, of
the strictest integrity, and unsullied
reputation. He is a careful, painstaking,
energetic man, and will be a great acqui
sition to the board of State officers.
Henry A. Koenig, the present State
Treasurer, needs no word of commenda
tion from our hands, or those if anybody
else. He has been tried and found to be
just the man for the position, and hence
his re-nomination by acchiuiatun. We
have known Koenig long as a business
man, and we only echo the opinion of
the State when we say that he is just
the man for Treasurer of the State of
Nebraska. Every man can sleep soundly
and feel that every dime placed in his
care will be safe, and forthcoming when
needed. He is a model Treasurer.
J. It. Webster is nominated for At
torney General. He comes from Saline
county, is said to be a first-rate lawyer,
and is a man of ability. Those who have
known him in Lincoln, speak of him in
the highest terms as a man and citizen.
He will honor his position and make his
mark among the rising young men of
V, W. Abbey is renominated for the
office of State Prison Inspector. Mr.
Abbey is a native of Ohio, and was Cap
tain in the aron-. He has been Sheriff
of Richardson and Superintendent of
I'ubiic Schools for the county. He has
performed his duties faithfully as inspec
tor, and his re-election is certain. He is
a man well spoken of by his neighbors,
of decided ability, and he has filled cred
itably every office to which he has been
elected by the people.
A. J. Weaver, of Falls City, Richard
son county, is a young lawyer ot good
reputation, and excellent business habits.
Ho is a graduate of the law department
of Harvard University; has been a resi
dent of Nebraska some fur years, and is
one of our mot active, stirring, energet
ij youn men. Ho was .i member of the
constitutional convention, and acquitted
himself in suea a luamur as to meet the
approbation of his constituents, and to
gain the esteem and respect of those as
sociated with him. He will make an ex
cellent prosecuting officer.
William J. Conneil, of Omaha, is too
well known here to need any introduc
tion at our hands, but as he is a young
man, he ni3y not be as well known in all
parts of the State. Mr. Cornell has
lived some years in Omaha. He has
been most assiduously engaged in the
study and practice of the law. He sus
tains an excellent reputation for industry,
ability and integrity, and his friends pre
dict for him a useful and honorable ca
reer in his chosen profession, lie will
make a faithful, hardworking, conseien
tious ofilecr, and is as sure of his dec- I
lion as thougn nis commission was al
ready in his hand.
Melville B. Hosie, our old friend, is
candidate for the Third district. If any
man in the State knows just what he ij
about, that man is M. B. Hoxie. He
has been a good deal in public life, is a
good lawyer, a practical man, and will
be a success as District Attorney. Mr.
Hoxie is a resident of Schuyler, has
been in the State several years, is a citi
zen of acknowledged ability and integrity,

A party must be pretty hard up for
material when it can only cry "ring or
gau, bought newspapers and Grant hire
lings." Did it never strike these peo
ple that Greeley owns and runs a paper
more emphatically known tud credited
to be his, " Grethy's jviper," than any
other newspaper in the United States ?
Did it never occur to them to remember
that Gratz Brown owned and ran a news
paper that made him all that he is and
more than he will ever be again to the
American people? Is it not a fact that
