State Platform of the Republican
1. The Republicans of Nebraska most hear
tily endorse the profession of principles formu.
latvd by the national republican convention at
Chieafce. and Dledge their unswerving support
o the candidates there nominated.
2. We affirm the doctrines of national sover
eignty intLe termulated principles upon which
the perpetuity of the ration rests, and that the
principle ef home rulo as enunciated by the
democratic party Is but the omitleus expression
of the Calhoun doctrine of stale right, is revo
lutionary in its character and distinctive of the
unity of the nation.
3. We regard the recent seizure of tho polls
and wholesale robbery of the fniBchiscs of the
republicaa citizens of Alabama, iurpassing iu
the magnitude and effrontery of the crime all
former efforts cl the paitv under their Tweed
plan in New York, and the AlusUsippi plan
In the south, as a lair specimen of democratic
wethed and a forecast of democratic dominiou
aaticnal affairs that slionld incite every hon
est ma and tax-payer in the country to tho
test earnest endeavor te defeat ttio party of
brigandage and fraud at the polls in November
4. We hare considered " hat Lee and Jack
son would no if they were alive," cheers and
have determined te employ our het energies in
preventing the seizure ef the national govern
ment by their living comrades through the
frauds of a soli4 south.
6. We congratulate the peopl of the state
apoa Us rapid Increase of population and wealth
and upon the good measure of prosperity tiiat
has rewarded their labor, upon the rapid up
building of our material interests since the sue
eess of resumption and the revival f t trade.
6. We pledge our fiippr.it to such legislation
In congress, aud such measures by state lems-
lalures as may be necessary to effect a correc
tion ef ahusee, and erevent extortionate dis-
eriraination in charges by railroad corporations.
T. We mt't cordir.ily Invite the aid and co
operation in the latest defence of the national
Integrity and the national pure of 11 republl
cans and war democrats who have differed
with us on temporal issue, or have clung to
a party name.

Tho County Ticket.
The Republican County Convention
renominated two of tho old members,
one for Senator, and one for Reprc
sentalive. The new men nominated
are James Hall and Dr. II. D. Root.
The present Senator, Mr. TeiTt, is
farmer Jiving at Avoca, in the south
em part of the Connty, and the family
haa been a long time in Cass County
Mr. Tefft has already served one term
in the Legislature, and is considered
by hi3 friends a man of a good deal of
As a rule, no gead objection exist

one term simply pests a man in the
routine work of conducting a large
leffislativa bodv. and tha older mem-
CJ ' "
bers always have the advantage of
prestige and experience over Ifce new
lv elected incumbents. What Mr. Tefft
may do, or may not do this titna on
certain local matters, the Herald has
no means of judging; but we do"knew
that Mr. Tefft has it in his power large
lv. to now harmonize this party. If he
will stand by the true friends of the
uartv. those who have shown some
generosity and conscience in political
matters, and wh have hitherto borne
willinslv the. burdens that free suf
frage imposes on a community, ho can
be elected bv a cood fair majority. He
can then help us t put down and out
live sectional Jlghts and personal bick
erinns. not bv asking the modest and
honest man to step aside fer cheek and
impudence, which has been the syno
nym for 'harmony" irr Cass County
but by throwing his influence for right
and justice, for peace and prosperity
and for the men and the measures that
hava not been tho result of bargain
snles. promises, fraud r.nd deceit. These
thing3 Mr. Tefft can do and should do,
The Herald, which is a Republican
paper, asks him to do this, and abide
by the result. lie has it in his power
to do much for Cass County, and carve
out a bright career for himself. As be
fore stated this is one cf the. most im
portant legislatures that ever met in
the State. In apportionments and re-
districting the Stat, this, the third
Count v in the State, is largely inter
ested and should have a voice. In one
house the voice of Cass County is Or
lando Tefft, and tho Herald has faith
to believe that with the experience of
the pr.st his present term will redound
to his own credit and trie welfare of
R. B. Windham, the other candidate
re-nominated, is, as von all know, a
voting lawyer of this city. He served
in the Inst legislature, and his friends
say his record will bear an earthquake
shock. All tha- we have said in regard
to the re-nomination of candidates in
Mr. Tefft's ease will apply as well to
Mr. Windham. He, too, has now the
experience of one term in the councils
Cf State. That he will profit by it, the
Herald makes no doubt. He is a
young man, quick to learn, and his le
gal ability will be of great service to
the other members f the delegation,
should he be elected.
The importance of this Session to
the country and party, in tha future,
cannot be over estimated and in Wind
ham we lnjpe to find a wary, cautious
Legislator, but a prompt and aggress
ive foe to Democratic schemes, and
plots to weaken our forces or eventu
ally capture part of Xebraska for the
Democracy. The experience of last
winter should toach Mr. Windham, too,
who are his real friends, and what is
badly nee 'ed in Cass county politics
to ensure success in the future. Hop
ing that his record this winter may
b-i-ss true, a? faithful as his friends
hope it will be, we leave hirn in the
hands of the voters of Cass County.
Janaos Hatt, surnamod "Jim" by
common consent is one of "nature's
noblemen," an honest farmer-- who
cane here serao years ago, ho says as
poor as wan well can b. aud who by
hia thrift and enorgy and solid good
sense ha carved out a competence and
a reputatien for fair dealing surpass
ed by none. This is Jain as first hoat
as a Candidate, although ho was fairly
nominated four yuars aga in Conven
tion, when it being discovered that
tho candidates were not distributed sat
isfactorily, the action of tho conven
tion was re-considered and James left
out in the cold. He took it like a man.
the Herald has always felt that the
party owes Hall something and wo
hope to see the vote for him this fall
attest the generosity and love of fair
dealing, which we claim for our party
and as our principles.
Dr. 3. D. Root, candidate for Repre
sentative is a practising Thysician in
Greenwood village. Dr. Root was at
one time very favorably spoken of as
Superintendent of tho Insane Asylum,
and has been for years an active and iu
tiuential member of the Republican
party in tho western part of the coun
ty. Ho is a man of more than ordina
ry ability and if elected will mirke a
X. 1 Representative, in our opinion,
and we don't want the Doctor to go
back on our judgment, "no how."
Jamea Crawford, re-nomicated for
County Commissioner is the right man
iu the right place. The present board
of Commissioners is oue of the most
effective and prudent the County has
bad, and of those Ja.ui!s Crawford is
one. The Herald most cheerfully
hoists his name to the nast head and
recommends him as a safe reliable
business man, a staunch Republican
and a Cemmiasionef that it won't pay
to swap off in crossing the stream of
Cocntt Fair postponed to Oct. 6.

On July 24th one of our gosd meral
citizens(?) made application to our
Council to ebtain license to sell liquors
in eur city for the ensuing license
year. Upon the fact becoming known
sonae ef cur citizens presented to that
honorable body a remonstrance, ob
jecting to the issuauce of said license
and giviDg as a reason for their protest,
that the applicant had been guilty of
violation of law in the manner in
w hich the business had been conduct
ed during the existence of his former
license, and placing before the Council
the transcripts of two of our courts
and citing Laws ef '73, which says that
"any person, w ho has violated sec. 572,
574 and 575, chap. 53, cr me code, Xe
braska; r any other restrictions now
placed upen the sale ef liquors, shall
net have license granted them." Xow
when the manuscript of our city court
shows that the applicant plead yuilty
of violation of Ordinance 59, Ojd paid
fine and costs, when the Laws of our
state and the United States s.ty that
full faith and credence shall be given
by all courts to the finding and decree
of any court in the land, and when the
applicant did not deny before that
honorable body but that he had been
guilty as plead, our Council proceed
ed to vote upon the question ef the
guilt or innoenc3 of the applicant in
the case on transcript, tha vote stwod
four for not guilty and one for guilty;
the matter now stands thus: four
Councilmen say by that vote that this
man of morals falsified when he said
he was guilty before tho courts.
They also s.ty by that vote, that our
Sunday law is a farce.
They also sny by that vote, that tho
plea of guilty and payment of a fine ia
proof of innocence.
They also say by that vete, that tho
transcript of our court records, proper

even when there is no evidence to the

will wholly disregard tha law in the
