State Platform of the Republican
1. The Republicans of Nebraska most hear
tily endorse the profession of principles forniu
lattd by the national republican convention at
Chicago, and pledge their unswerving euppor
to the candidates there nominated.
2. We Affirm that the doctrine of national
sovereignty is tLe fundamental principle upon
which the perpetuity of the nation rests, and
that the principle of home rule as enunciated
ly the democratic party is but the cautious ex
pressian of the Calhoun doctrine of state rights
is revolutionary in its character and desti ucti ve
to the unity of the nation.
3. W regard the recent seizure of th polls
And wholesale robbery of the franchises of the
republican citizens of Alabama, by the demo
cratic ofiicials, surpassing in the magnitude
And llrontery of the crime, all former efforts of
their party under the Tweed plan in New York,
or the Mississippi plan in the south, as a fair
'specimen of democratic methods, and a fore
taste of democratic dominance in national af
fairs, that should incite every honest man and
tax-payer in the country to the most earnest
endeavor to defeat the party of brigandage and
fraud at the polls in November.
4. We have considered '"what Lee and Jack
en would do if they were alive," and have
determined te employ our best energies in
preventing the seizure ef th o national govern
ment by their living comrades through the
frauds of a "solid south."
5. We congratulate the people of the state
pon its rapid increase of population and wealth
and upon the seod measure of prosperity that
has rewarded their labor ; upon the rapid up
building ef our material interests since the suc-
oess of resumption and the revival of trade.
6. We pledge our support to .such legislation
ia cengress, and such measures by state legis
latures as may be necessary to effect a correc
tion yl abuses, and prevwit extortionate dis
crirn iiation in charges by railroad corporations.
T. We most cordially invite the aid and co
peratlon in this defence of the nation's
integrity, and the nation's purse, of all republi

TriE Independent Republican Com

the expectation that it will interest it

question. "Even its hereditory doc

in the main are eminently correct.

of Mr. Rosewater's advice. But his
advice shows conclusively that he has
no confidence in a republican senate of

Newspaper Men in Politics.
The newspaper men of Xebraska
seem to be taking advantage of the
presidential canvass t come forward
prominently in public life themselves.
Gere, of the Lincoln Journal, has been
nominated for the State Senate. So,
also has Mr. Wells, of the Crete Union.
Our versatile friend, MacMurphy,
made a spirited run for the Senate and
also for the State Auditorship, but
was unable to poll votes enough to se
cure a nomination. A number of ed
itors appear t have been chosen as
candidate for the lower house. While
there may be some question as to the
advisability of a newspaper man going
too extensively into politics, at the ex
pense of his regular work, there can
be lo doubt but that the average news
paper editor is far better qualified to
perform legislative duties successfully
than the class of men ordinarily nam
ed in that connection. We are glad to
see the people of Xebraska appreciat
ing the services of the conscientious,
hard-working journalists, and only
hope that the State press may in no
way be called upon to suffer from this
conflict of occupation. Omaha Herald

WHY IS IT?
That eastern capitalists, and even
those of our own State, fail to see and
profit by the remunerative business of
stock raising? Here are scores of ex
cellent locations for ranches, for either
sheep or cattle. The former will, of
course, bring the quickest and most
frequent returns; and some parties
contend that they bring the largest re
turns. Be that as it may, here in this
country ;ue many thousand acres ly
ing idle and unprofitable, that might
be coveted with grazing herds of some
kind; thus yielding their rich covering
of buffalo and bunch grass for the pe
cuniary benefit of the owners of the
herds, the County, and tho State.
here is the money-iender who is
suie of more than G, 8, or 10 per cent,
except in the case of a foreclosure ef
mortgage? While in contrast the prof
its here on stock-raising are variously
estimated at 25, 50, and even 100 per
cent. There are certainly very lew who
make less than 40 per cent. One ranch
man, whose word is considered good,
states that tho cost of a three-year old
steer is 87 cents; and there ate plenty
of men who will take from 100 to 500
head of calves, and keep them until
years old, for S3 per head. These are
facts that can be proven. Perhaps some
will say thoy cannot come out West
with stock, or cannot live the life of a
ranchman. If so, there are men here
and elsewhere, who will give good ref
erences, and enter into all necessary
writings, and take the stock n shares
one-half the increase for a term of
four or five years. Our taxes are but
12 to 15 mills on the dollar, the Co.

other locality is s good or better? It
may be, but I doubt it, when range and

In the part of the country I speak
of there is little danger of interference
by farmers, as the average farmer can
not afford to dig 150 to 250 feet for
water, and erect windmills. And there
are not large enough tracts for three
or four to build together, to divide ex

Temperance in England.
The temperance sentiment so far
as legislative action is concerned in
England appears to be getting ahead
of us in this country. The present
Parliament promptly passed the Lo
cal Option Bill, which allows every
municipality or political division to
prohibit or allow the liquor traffic, as
a majority of the voters shall deter
mine. Following close upon this was
the passage of the Sunday-closing Bill,
for Engiiiud, and lastly the same meas
ure was extended to Wales. The con
sumption of intoxicating liquors in
England coats the people about the
same tint it does in this country six
hundred millions and adds largely to
the poverty and moral degradation
which exists in so many districts. On
this question the Independent and
Xon-Conforinist remarks: "Let it be
distinctly undeistood that while we
fully recognize the value of these re
strictive measures, suppression alone
will satisfy us."
On a recent Sunday, sermons on
temperance were preached in two hun
dred of the Eqiscopal churches of Lon
don. At the annual meeting of the
Church Temperance Society it was
stated that in twenty dioceses there
are now two hundred and nineteen
ALCOHOLIC DEATH RATE.
Dr. Norman Kerr, a distinguished
English physician, referring to the
death-rate from alcohol, says:
"Dr. Richardson gave it as his opin
ion, some time ago, that 'were En
gland converted to temperance, the
vitality ef the nation would be in
creased one-third in value; or, in oth
er words, nearly 227,000 lives would
be saved to us every year.' This is a
startling statement; but, after careful
investigation, Dr. Kerr thinks it is
much nearer the truth than many were
disposed to believe. His own calcula
tions give 200,000 as tho number of
deaths resulting from drinking, of
which 128,000 may bo traced to drunk
enness and the rest to more or less
moderate uses of alcohol."
