1. The Republicans of Nebraska most hear
tily endorse llic profession of principles fnriiut-
latcd py ihe national repiihliC..n convention at

to the candidates there nominated.
2. We affirm the doctrines el national sover-
gnty in ti-o (e mukucrt principle tipr.ii which
tie perpetuily of the nation rests, and that the
principle f home rule as enunciated by the
democratic party is but the cautious expression
of the Calhoun doctrine of state right?, is revo
lutionary in il character and desti uctive of the
unity of the nation.
3. We regard the recent seizure of tho polls
and wholesale rohbery of the franiii?es of the
republican citizens of Alabama, surpassing in
the magnitude and effrontery of the crime all
former efforts of the party under their Tweed
plan in New York, and the Mississippi plan
la the south, as a fair t-pecinien of democratic
method and a forecast of democratic dominion
national affairs that s hould incite every hon
est man and tax-payer in the country to the
most earnest endeavor te defeat the party of
brigandage and fraud at the palls in November
4. We hare considered "what Lee and Jack
son would do if they were alive," cheers aud
have determined to employ our best energies in
preventing the seizure f th national govern
ment by their living comrades through the
frauds of a solid south.
6. We congratulate the people of the state
pon its rapid increase ot population and wealth
aud upon the Rood measure of prosperity that
has rewarded their labor, upon the rapid up
building of our material intercuts si net the suc
cess of resumption and the revival of trade.
0. We pledge our support to such legislation

latures as may be necessary te effect a correc

Hen. John M. Thurston rose and said : Mr.
Chairman and jentlemen of the convention I
desire to move that the platform which you
hare heard read be adopted. In doing sol de

principles of the party, but it reflects also the
forward position taken by the republican party

Fourteen thousand people were on the

The old soldiers enjoyed the return
of camp-life and the remembrances of

imagined. Such greetings, such hand

Many of those who could reach there
with teams, brought their wives and
clrldien, and the pride and the iater-
est they manifested, as husbands, fa
thers and brothers marched round, was
a sight worth going miles to witness.
The camp-fires each evening in a
huge board pavillion, were attended by
thousands. Experifences of the war,
speeches by prominent comrades of the

We havo been asked so often for

On organizing it is nsual to choose a

All present desiring to become mem

A Neat Way of Pnlting the Southern
Gen. Ben Harrison in a speech at
Terra Haute, Ind.. said, "And now if
we turn to the Southern States we find
their electoral vote is already counted
for Gen. Hancock. Wade Hampton
cast the electoral vole of those states
at the Cincinnati Convention 13S for
Gen. Hancock." I submit, sir, no one
could put the Southern situation moro
neatly than that. A proverb says,
"Never count your chickens before
thev are hatched ; but nere is an in
stance of counting the eggs before
they are laid, with the full assurance
that every one of them will have a
(Han) cock in it. Gen. Wade Hamp
ton is the hf n that is to lay thera, and
the Cincinnati convention took up the
cackle in anticipation of the grand
Louisville has heard from Maine.
Tell J.N. Wise to whoop it up to the
democrats, for the republican defeat is
not so monstrous as "it used to was.'
Conrad Schlater is one of tho jolliest

prcssion ne got irom the first news
Wo fc'et same political new hare oc
casionally, though all as yet from dem
ocratic speakers. Ilartigan, Crites and
Wi3e came up here last week to do
some missionary work. Hartigan says
that recent converts are usually the
most enthusiastic, though not always
the most discreet. We believe it, and
we are incliuad to believe that some
wouia backslide u tney had nair a
lneir audience neie was mostly re
publican. Hartigan led the attack, aad
was followed by Crites and Wise re
spectively. The audience was charac
teristic of Louisville, attentive, but
prone to independent thinking. Cut
forth saj a Hartigan got his speech from
J no. I. Roddick, and Capt. Howell says
Kediick get n from a speech delivered
by Mai in Indiana. So we concluded
that, as Nasby would say, the speech
alter all was intended really for Indi
ana rather than Louisville. The speak
er seemed verv much attached to "the
hero of Gettysburg," but was forced to
admit that Gen. Meade commanded tho
Union forces in that memorable con
flict. He should have gone farther and
told us that Hancock never held an in
dependent command, and never won a
victory. And, by the way, did not a
cannon ball strike a board fence, be
hind which our "hero" was standing,
and did he not retire to the hospital
about noon on tho second day of said
fight with a wound in his back, caused
by a board from said fence? The board
had a nail in it.
Hartigan charged that the republi
cans claim to have been the means of
the vast increase in our population,
and he attempted to prove that the
democrats did their share in that di
rection. We did not know before that
the republicans made any such claim,
but if it is so made, Louisville will not
go back on the claim, but will givo the
following as convincing and substan
tial proof that the claim is well taken:
Dr. Waterman, D. D. Martindale, J. It.
Toman, C. W. King, Murray Harrison.
Ben Hoover, Jas. Hoover, Ben Dorski,
Jno Savles. Will Bringman, W Rhodes,
Aaron Yonker, J. C. Newberry, Chris.
Inhelder, Harrison Hayes and W Clark
all sing to the tune of "Baby Mine."
Just think of it ! Sixteen republican
babies in ne little town, and wonder
ful as it may appear, there is not a sin
gle democratic baby here, nor any pros
pect till Ramsey gets married. Bio.
Hartigan, try that argument some
But "we must give Hartigan the cred
it due hira, and say that he did prove
rather conclusively that nearly nine
tenths of the Union soldiers were dem
ocrats, and that the republicans were
responsible for the National debt.
Bro. Crites speech was "gauzy." Iho
short time ho occupied in speaking was
mainly used in proving that Missouri
and Kentucky were more loyal than
Isew England. We think he could havo
done better if he had more time.
Bro. Wiso is surely the Nebraska
edition of Nasby. The burden of his
effort was an attack on the University.

which fell with such terrible results
on the house of Mr. Lackey, and the
fact that the building was not protect
ed by lightning conductors, will awak
en man', whose buildings are in a sim
ilar condition, to the necessity of pro
tecting them before the nnheralded
messenger enters their homes to de
stroy and sadden. The country will
soon swarm with unprincipled light
ning rod men, who. with their "blind
propositions" will delude and victim
ize the unsuspecting. We admit tho
protective powers of rods, but detest
the low class of swindlers who gener
ally engage in selling them. Hence we
warn our citizens not to deal with any
with whom they are not thorugly ac
quainted. We advise these wanting
rods to address Clark & Pankonin, at
Weeping Water. They aro honast men
and both residents of this County.
A man by the name of Bryan was
run over by the cars at Louisville last

Several couples of riattsmouth
people went out to Mr. Warrant's last

mixed crowd, as some wero hurrahing

New houses and barns are going
up on nearly every farm throughout
the county, which shows our farmers
are prospering, and still soma people
are "howling" for a change. Voto for
Garfield & Arthur and you will con
tinue to prosper.

one of the best of Cass Co's. farmers

Our city schools opened last week
with a fair quota, which is continual
ly increasing. The number at starting
was 3C), and over COO have already re
ported. Prof. Love informs us that
"with the same rati of increase as last
year, there will be in tho neighborhood
of nine hundred during the winter
months. The present number averages
over fifty to a teacher, and this is cer!
tainly the limit which any one teacher
can do justice to. W e are giaa to se
the schools start in so auspiciously.
We neglected to make mention
last week of two very handsome bou
quets sent to us with the compliments
of Mrs. Pollock, and which as the re
sults of the first year of work in their
garden were truly astonishing. Great
pansies, heliotrope, roses, asters, gera
niums, and a great variety of other
blossoms, formed a lovely collection,
which enriched our vases for several
days, and which wo enjoyed the moro
as the season is fast approaching when
we cannot have them in such abundance.
In the report of the Commissioners'
Proceedings last week an error occur
red. It states: "Twenty days' lieenp
was granted Cha3. Bielefeld of Louis

license was laid over for 20 days. No
license is granted for 20 days, ever.
