PATRONS OF HUSBANDRY.
It is the expressed desire of M r. Wm.
B. Porter, Master of the State Grange,
Patrons of Husbandry .thathe Grangers
of Nebraska, take no active part in
polities this fall: but support the men
who favor the working classes and op
position to monopolies, by acts as we.!l
The above card, in large type, r.i
peared in the pet organ of our worthy
master, about July 27th. last. It was
followed by a long letter, strongly ad
vising the Grangers to keep out of and
above politics. No words of ours are
neoessarj- to point out the impropriety
of the Master of the State Grange al
lowing himself to become a candidate
this fall on either side, and especially
after a good, sound, honest man, to
whom there is ho Valid objection, was
already in the field.
Of course the financial panic is the
topic of the week. It has placed poli
tics in the background, run local news
into the fence, and absorbed every
other interest, eVen to the high price
of potatoes. We announced the fail
ure of Jay Cooke & Co., La our last
week's issue. Since that time, almost
every bank of prominence in the
United States has closed or suspended
payment, partially. Our telegraphic
and news columns give the particulars
of the late panic. Editorially, we
draw the following conclusions: It
M as caused by over speculation in rail
road securities, by the bad habit of
building railroads oh the monies ob
tained from the sale of bonds, and
only expending the half of that in the
actual work of the road, and, further
more, by attempting to build roads
from nowhere to nowhere, in the hopes
that somewhere it would strike ile,
and a town or county of sufficient ca
pacity to support half a railroad, would
spring up and make business enough
to pay the interest eu tho bcnd3.
Its effects have been to temporarily
close up all channels of business, stop,
for a short time, the shipment of cat
tle, grain and produce of all kinds, and
to greatly reduce the amount of mer
chaiulise purchased in the west for the
Its final results will be to benefit all
towns and countries having a railroad
already built, tuul at their doors (ex
cept along the line of ihe Northern Pa
cific) to make us more careful about
our expenditures, as individuals, and
teach our banks to be more careful in
One of tho results of the late money
panic will be to make coal cheaper.
Railroad building for some time has
been so extensive that all the great
iron works have turned their attention
to making railroad iron, and the
amount of coal used was enormous.
From this time on iron men will have
to turn their attention to other branch
es of work, and the effect will be to
cheapen agricultural implements, and
to lessen the consumption of enor
mous quantities of coal. Both these
results will be for the benefit of the
Again; our National banks that
come out of the fire all right will be
strengthened and upheld after this,
they being the safest depositories for
money. As mntters have been going
private bankers were enabled to pay a
small amount of interest on deposits,
while the National bbks were not
The result was that private banks re
ceived the largest deposits, nd in or
der to even the thing up National
banks, in some instances; loaned their
money more recklessly to railroadmen
and large speculating corporatiwi., on
stock and bond securities, at a higher
rate of interest than they could or
ougM to obtain from the farmer and
the merchant, doing a slow but legiti
mate business. Those of the National
banks who survive this ordeal will be
careful how they try that game again,
while the plain fact that the National
banks are the safest in time cf trouble,
will increase their deposits, and thus
allow thern to loan the money at home
on good real estate mortgage or bona
fide business paper,- although at a some
what lower rate ot interest, perhaps,
?vml thus the country will be benefitted
instead of large speculators.
Lastly It may help Jts all to rfttorn
to more economical ways and a safer
and slower way of getting rich. It
may satisfy the farmer that wiping out
towrvs fml rniddT.3 men will not in
crease tho price of his grain; and trades
rrien and mechanics that rifefely high
prrces and high: wages do not coati
tntS prjtfpsrfty.' It may rrfdtfee Cotx-
better purposes and vrill certainly edu
cate all our people in financial matters.
When the great iron furnaces are
closed and many coal miners are out of
work, when other trades feel the effects,
and many poor go hungry and naked(
per chance it may convince a few that
strikes do not inefCase the sum total of
human happirieiH and that it is better
for capital and labor to work together
harmoniously, and on sucli terms as
each can statid, than to cut off noses to
spite faees, on either hand. Mean
while, the West, our West, is full of
grain. The farmer has plenty of hogs
and cattle on UaHd, and can never
starve nor want for a home; and while
the market is temporarily stopped, and
he has no sale for either, he will have
leisure to reflect fully on the real ad
vantages and disadvantages of rail
roads, and frame fair regulations for
his owrt benefit, without trying to crip
pie legitimate means of transportation.
As the whole world wants the farm
ers1 cattle, hogs and grain, 113 may rtst
in peace, assured that but a short time
will elapse bfefore those fearful fellows,
the middle men, and the speculators
will have found a way to get .it theiri
again, and the little folks ,-nd the
women can once mofii ehjdy store tea,
store sugaf, and store clothes. This
panic, like a good thunder storm, has
only cleared the financial atmosphere.
If we go to" work on ccflnmon sense
methods, w:e shall soon see a season of
"AFTER FARMER PAINE.
A letter in regard to some financial
transactions of Captain Faiiif-'s has
been handed the IIekAld, iUitl the
fai-ts therein, endorsed by a mlmVer of
lendinrr citizens. Ca:. Paine makes an
explanation of the uVitter, that at least
puts a different face On the affair;
while it tWbd riot satisfactorily account
for all the charges contained in tho let-
tef, it places it in the light ofa private"
hiiFinpss transaction. The bUsi'nr-ss
integrity of individuals, i3 too delicate
a subject for a newspaper to toileh ex
cept in clear cases of swindling. Thcte"
is another matter however In regard to
this man, that the Herald feels free
to comment on. It i3 currently re
ported and vouched for by good men,
tlvat the said Paine is constantly
making charges against the business
management and financial integrity of
one of oiir best known and oldest citi
zens, and a candidate for County Com
missioner. Not only that, but he is
striving and trying to stir up bad blood
between the city and county, by assert
ing that M. L. White is pledged to
build a Court House beFe if elected,
and that he can some way help the
town in railroad matters, to thedisad
vantage of the country. In the first
place, the charge is idle and silly, for
whatever may be said of M. L. White,
ne one accuses 1dm of being a fool
(that is more thart can be said of
Paine) and no man above the capacity
of a Painful idiot would pledge him
self to any such a course, on the eve of
a nomination. We most unhesitating
ly declare all charges of the kind
against M. L. White to be false, and
the men that made them Tcnow them
to be false.
No pledges of any kind were asked
or received of M. L. White, by any Citi
zen of this town, and he was nominated
solely on his financial record, hereto
fore. Under the" management of the
Paine style of men, our city .is fast be
coming bankrupt, and we earnestly de
sire to keep the county from falling
into the same pool. For these reasons
and none other did the Republicans,
by and with Ihe good wishes of many
Democrats, nominate Mr. White.
Wise men have been trying for some
time to allny and conquer this feud be
tween town and county ,and in the pres
ent juncture one would think that no
good citizen would foment any more
difficulty in this line. We are" rinding
out, day by day that we are both .nec
essary to each other, that the country
stands or falls together. You cannot
ruin the cities and leave the country
unscathed, nor wnmg the country and
leave .the cities unlmrmed. Their ad
versity or prosperity are in common.-'
The man thai would help to widen the
breach between this place and the rest
of the county, at this time is a traitor
to his country's best interests, and an
unscrupulous trickster at heart.
If Paine is doing this it is a work of
double ingratitude on his part, that
ought to earn him infamy forever; for
to the citizens of this town he owes all
he is, and the little thre is of him has
been harbored, fed and and kept alive
Iry the misguided and mistaken kind
ness and vote3 of the citizens of the
town of Plattsmouth.

celebrated firm of Reed Brothers, who,
