Two very big straws were launched
on the wave of public opinion at Lin

much attention from our exchanges.
One was the manner in which Ex-Gov.

other the immense instantaneous en

duced. This country, after all, wants

scared because Rob Doom says the

Neither pick nor ailing:.
The Republican's correspondent at
North Platte savs the opening by Ma-
! jor J. W. Davis of the greenback cani-
paign at that place was not a success.
The great majority of the people of
t Ii is State are too busy with their well
rewarded work, and with the care of
the bounty they are receiving from the
harvests, to give much heed to the j
hare-braine 1 inventions and nostrums
that are being prescribed by such po
litical quacks ;i3 Major Davis for this
part of the country which, we declare
with knowledge, is neither sick nor

The Lincoln Journal says this about
the two candidates for Congress now
before the people:
Valentine has always had a trade
or profession, and has always earned
his living by the sweat of his brow.
Davis has no trade or profession,
toils not nor does lie spin, yet Sol
onion in all his glory was not arrayed
like he, when he could get a job from
any one of the three parties, and sub
sist on the proceeds of his wind. At
other times, between jobs he gets see

! Wr. are sorry that we cannot record
j any abatement of the terrible south
1 ern scourge. In New Orleans the to
tal number of deaths for one week is
D03, seventy-two a day. The fever is
spreading much more into the iu'er
ior towns, and the demands upon the
noble Howard association are still un
remitting and are bravely met. Krantz
t lie chief commissioner of the Paris
j Exposition has written to Commission
er General McComick offering to give
a fete at Trocadero palace for the ben
efit of the sufferers which h's been ac
cented. Five hundred francs were
sent by Gen. Hotel, French Minister
of War to Gen. Noyes the American
Minister for the same purpose.
Mil. Finch has been holding Tem
perance Meetings in Omaha for the last
two or three weeks and the interest in
them has been steadily growing, until
a larger building had to be found to ac
commodate the growing audience.
Over 3,300 are said to have donned the
red ribbon. A grand temperance mass
meeting is to be held there the 2od,
21th and 2ih, of this month, and ar
rangements are being made with the
railroads of the State for reduced rates,
and grand preparations being made to
entertain the expected temperance
breiliif n. We learn that an invitation
to the. Templais of Plattsmouth will

The Platform of the Republican par
ty is a sound, hearty and honest docu
ment. It is not all money either, but
enunciates distinct principles in regard
to equal rights, an honest civil service
reform, insuring a permanent tenure
of cflice to the incumbent, for the time
appointed without restricting his rights
as a citizen and a man. It protects us
against rebel claims and provides that
corporations shall be under adequate
j Slate a:rd National Legislation. It
j hails the return of financial confidence
; and a revival of trade and commerce,
! and stamps as fraud the constant cry
5 that we are bankrupt aud on the verge
; of dissolution as a Nation or a people.
ilt declares that the Greenback shall!
not be dishonored or depreciated; but
shll I e made as goo I as honest coin;
laborers dollar shall mean a real
uncertainty of its value
shall cms,, and our currency boa sound
; convert Hue, redeemable currency, goou
for the laboring man and the rich man
alike. It denounces the demonetization
of silver, ai. l the attempt of the Dem
ocracy to steal a president; the provid
ing of an extraordinary commission to
count the vote and the attempt to re
verse the decision of this tribunal, of
j its own making, afterwards. It is not
j a platform of sound, a platform to
j merely stand on and shout. It means
j business, it is real, earnest and full
j of vital truths. If the Republican par-
i ty cannot win on this platform, it can
on no other. We ask for it a careful
weuYcm to be un absolute necessity, in
this day of our daw ning prosperity.
The Meaning of the Convention.
The convention that many prophe
sied would terminate in a row was
really one of the most spirited but har
monious conventions that the republi
can party ever held in this State. Al
though there were a number of contest
ed delegations each case was settled
J . . Tl. 1 " 1 . - .. 1 1 . .
on us mems auu iuniv aim b u;uei .
one way or the other, which would do j
header business, had not the Central
Committee provided for them in the
The platform which some thought
we should disagree upon was ap
proved without debate, and the conven
tion" would have adjourned at noon on
Thursday in the most amicable man
ner had it not been for resolutions in
troduced by Mr. Rose water in regard
to the bridgo tolls at Omaha; and
which it was insisted upon should be
come a portion of the platform of the
Republican party. This was objected
to by many of the soundest men in the
convention without regard to the posi
tion they had occupied on other ques
tions or the candidates they had voted
for. It led to a most acrimonious de
bate in which the eternal railroad fight
supposed to exist in the State was
dragged in and re-hashed over and over
to the disgust of all sensible delegates.
A stranger would have thought really
the only object of t he convention was
to decide which railroad corporation
exercised the greatest influence in Ne
braska politics, or that the convention
were a bod' of jurors to decide which
corporation was capable of the greatest
amount of scoundrelism and extortion.
Now if the action of the convention
settled anything it was that the peo
ple, outside of the demagogues and po
litical lawyers on the Iloor, meant o
act for themselves without the aid of
either railroad, and in despite of
interference from either of the- roads
If the nomination of Mr. Valentine, in
preference to other candidates there,
means anything it means that the con
vention was determined not to .select
any man claimed to belong to either
corporation, but a man whom they sup
posed would act fair and square be
tween both roads and in the interest of
the people. It meant this or nothing.
The introduction of the resolution
at a late hour and when so many had
left, was useless and an evil. It set
The sentiment of that convention
was that the railroad tolis should be
reduced, unquestionably; but in
sisting that it be made part of the
platform, and delaying the adoption of
any platform unless that was done, re
sulted in the apparent endorsement of
amendment, was finally voted down by
1-J7 to 84. We do not believe the rail
road companies want to be dragged be
fore the public in the light of robbers
every year, and the' cannot afford it.
I To avoid this they should get rid of
the demagogues, and political vampires
who have fastened to 'them, using
them year by year, instead of being
used by the companies.
Lack of space last week prevent
ed our mentioning the advance
ment of Col. O. H. Irish, formerly
of Nebraska City, from the position
of assistant in the IJurcau of En
graving and Printing in Wash
ington, which he has held for some
years past, to that of Chief of the Bu
reau, to till the vacancy caused by the
resignation of Mr. McPherson. We
are glad to see the deserved promotion
of an old friend and citizen of Nebras

The oDth dist. Convention, being the
"float." between this and Saunders
county met at Ashland on Tuesday.
The meeting was called to order by J.
A. MacMurphy, chairman of Cass Co.,
Central Committee and J. D. Cook was
elected permanent chairman.
A Committee on credentials was ap
pointed and reported satisfactorily to
the Convention. Jas. E. Morrison and
Henry Anderson were appointed tell
ers. An informal ballot was called for
and st Jod Haywood, 5: Stocking, 1;
Vandeman, 5 ; Mead, 1 ; and four blanks.
Mr. Haywood positively withdrew,
Oa the first formal ballot, it stood
Stocking, 5; Mead, 1; Vandeman, 15.
The nomination of Mr. Vandeman was
made unanimous and to avoid a dis
pute in the future about the number
of delegates on motion from each coun
ty a Central Committee for the Dist.
was appointed as follows, from Cass
John A. MacMurphy, from Saunders

such chairman Jos. McKinnon.of Cass.

eil because it is true.
Judge E. K. Valentine, nominated
for Congress by the Republicans of
Nebraska, is an Iowa born boy, having

start in life. Now he is a candidate
tor one of the highest offices ir. the gift
of the people of our neighboring State,
and will be elected beyond a doubt.
And yet we hear the complaint that
the laboring man, the poor man, has
no chance. The truth is that this is
distinctively and emphatically the poor
man's country, and it only needs that
he should exert himself and value proj
erly the result of his exertions to be
come independent and eminent. Judge
Valentine's case is not an isolated one
by any means. A large proportion of
the men who control the press, the pol
itics and the pulpit of the country, who
sit on the Rench, go to Congress, own
houses and lands and railroads, trans
act the business and manage the affairs
of the country generally, began life as
poor men, ju3t as did the gentleman
whom the people of Nebraska have
honored, and are about to honor, so
conspicuously and so worthily. It is
time, and high time, that the silly driv
el that workingmen have no chance
should come to an end.
Kekp these three facts before the
people. First that we have waded
through all the evils of contraction, of
a crazy desire to pay off the debt at

That if the Fiat money delusion is
good in theory and a remedy for pres

before ihe Government could legally

greenbacks, and before that time the
present debtor class would be hopeless

taxable, being evidence of government

offer an inducement to rich men to

The Soft-monev delusion is dying in
the States in which it originated, in
Ohio as well as in Indiana. Li the lat
ter State, Senator McDonald, in an in
terview with a Chicago Times reporter
after declaring that he was "not a soft
money man," said theso important
"In my State the soft-money delus
ion, has, I think, reached its climax
and is on the decline. The greenback
ers are gathering no strength, and the
number of those who believe that the
government can sayZ7 Fluribus Unitm,
this is a dollar,' and thu3 make curren
cy at will, is steadily decreasing."
This statement accounts for that
splendid Hard-Money speech delivered
by th: Senator at Logansport, and tells
us that the craze for cheap money is
dying on the very spot of its origin.
The old Indiana war-horse says pros
perity is reviving in Indiana, and with
the return o; it, the craze, will disap
pear. He adds: "People in general
don't want a depreciated currency; ag
riculture don't want it, business men
don't want it, and it won't find lasting
favor anywhere." Omaha Herald.

Mr. Chas. Plunkett, Sr. must have ex
peiienced, last night, every emotion of
pride which can be stirred by a sense
of public appreciation. His le-appoar-ance
here was hailed by such an audi
ence as has not gathered in the Opera
House since it's opening. The beauty
culture, fashion and taste of the city
were there, and the veidict, when the
curtain fell on the sixth and last act
of " A Celebrated Cas' was enthusias
tic approval of the faithful and thrill
ing presentation of that most impress
ive and eiaotional play.
Every lady sutd gentleman in the
company played perfectly. Nothing
was left to be desired in the smooth
mechanism of the movement from pro
logue to finis, while of course the ap
pearance of the old favorite. Chas.
Plunkeit, sent a rush of welcome ap
plause through the house, as w--is the
case when the audience detected the
pleasant ami familiar face of Mrs.
PlunketLSr, through her stage dress.
The play is the French Frenchy. It
has all the rash, tragic, thrill, unex
pected attack of the sympathies, of
" La tour de Nesle," but happily with
out any of the grossly immoral sug
gestions of that play.

commotion among them and they have
all left, thanks to the "Centennial Rat
