The Omaha papers are jut now ex
rrcising themselves over the propriety or
impropriety of discuFsing the merits and
qualifications or the prospective candi
dates for senitorial honors when the time
of Mr. Paddock's service shall have ex
pired. It is perhaps well enough for our
friends in the eastern part of the state to
indulge in such discussions but in the
western part of the state no discussion is
necessary, the qualifications and fitness
of Ex-Gov. Silas Garber are too well
known to require any discussion at the
hands of the press, or others.

Some people thought that the coLvic
tioti of Olive was such a condemnation of
mob law as would diminish such acts.
Since then, two men have been hung ;n
the western part of the State by mobs
It would seem, therefore, that if the
people have drawn aBy lesson at all
from the Olive trial, it is that the pun
ishment was so inadequate to the crime,
that no chances should be taken for the
ovasion of tho legal penalty for deliberate
murder. As long as criminals are not
punished according to law, they are very
liable to be, once in a while, without

The second section of the platforn of
the National Workingmen's Greenback
party of Louisville Kentuckey, rads as
follows: "That prisoners shall only work
to make their bread, meat, shoes and
clothes, and, if they have any spare time,
they shall he lectured on morality."
Tho point of this section 'ies in the ap
plication. If the average Greenback
orator is to be chosen for the delivery of
the moral lecture it is iu conflict with the
ltter of the Constitution, which says
that "cruel and inhuman punishment

more flattering prospect for a good small

Ed. Chief. It pains us to witness,
as we did a short time ago, the fcene of
some of those whom we recken among
our best citizens and personal friends, in
the saloons and on the streets of Hed
Cloud disgracefully intoxicated, playing
the part of wild hooting savages, rather
then that of the highly respected young
gentlemen which they are in our circle
of society recognized as being. And
having these facts staring us in the face,
we have become interested in the cause
of temperance rather than in digging
and delving in this peaceable and well to
do community for the bits of news and
excitement wbich occur in the ordinary
affairs of our every day life; hence wc
ask tho forbearance of the editor and
reader if they find that W2 have ven
tured into a field from whence come cries
and appeals, earnestly pleading for its
due portion of the time, talent and en
ergy of every lover of the advancement
of a higher standard of goodnefs, princi
ple and humanity.
Let every friend to justice, truth and
right, arouse to a sense of his duty and
put this question to himself what can 1
do to arrest thisdeamon strong drink
and restore again the unfortunate one
who has, unconscious of the influence of
fast immoral friends, and that of the
first drink, failea into the anyielding
grasp of a rice se prevalent ia our land.
Is saloon keeping a legitimate and hon
orable business? If so. thea exacting
license is an imposition. If saloons and
all other nlaces where strong drink ia
sold a; a beverage, are not within then
reives a benefit to the people, then I ask.
does the fact that such dealers pay a
lacense remove the evil? If it does then
I would say to the officials who have the
right to grant such license, give me li
cense for committing the ssoet fieadish
deeds that human heart eaa coaceire of,
no matter how great aad rnhuaaaa ay
crimes may ce, l will pay a license in

The absence of Secretary Sherman has
lent new impetus to the fload of gossip,
and it is confidently believed by n large
majority of people that he ia home work
ing up a Presidential movement for him
self. The Democrats are on nettle
about it, for their own internal quarrels
are hard to heal, and they seize every
pretence like this so called Sherman
movement to excite their own tollowers
to unite more cordially. As far as I can
judge the sentiment of Republican here
is that Judge Taft will be the Republican
candidate for Governor, thus leaving the
Democratic quarrels and the Presiden
tial campaign to take care of themselves
in regular order. AVe can carry Ohio
