TRIDAY. OCT. 17, 1884.
The Democrats want a change in
the administration, in order, as Mr.
Hendricks siys, to get a chance to
overhaul the book. Takinz the naat
Kg a upecimen of how the democrats
managed the finances of the govern
ment, it would not be a good change to
take it from the republicans and hand
it over to them. The best evidence of
the business ability of the Republican
party h a comparison1 the losses un
hoth parties. Under the democratic
rule, from the days of Van Buren down
to Buchanan, the losses in the collec
tion of the public revenues averaged
$5.1 7 on each $1,000, while under re
publican rule the average of low has
only been forty-six cents. The books
Of the Treasury department show tint
the Ioshps to the government under the
rule of Van Buren were $1 1.75 on every
$1,000 collected and disbursed; under
Tyler it was $6.40 on the 1,000; under
Polk it was $4.08; under Taylor and
Fillmore, $4.19; under Pierce it wna
$3.56; under Buchanan it was $3.81;
under Lincoln it was just 70 cents on
the $1,000; under Johnson it was 57
cento; under Grant, eight years, 24 and
under Hayes just eight-tenths of on
mill on the $1,000. In view of thctc
figures the people ought to be frantic
for a change, and turn out a party able
to manage the finances, and put in
power one that proved itself incapable
when it was in power,
Fanlon BBd Con-Kamon.
There would uppear to be soine very
ugly rumors afloat concernins tho prob
ble action of certain leadcre who are
supposed to represent tho "fusion'
ticket in the state. These rumors would
certainly appear to find fcolid found
ation in the action, speeches and con
duct of men identified with the demo
cratic pasty with the unti-monpoly
causo as represented in tho mongrel
ticket put in nomination at Omaha.
Of course the general supposition has
leen that when tho two organizations
came together to barter, trade and
"dicker" for the oflices, the one thing
agreed to and understood between
tlie leaders was: That the load
er! could and would deliver the rank
nd file up to tho sacrifice, however
distasteful the "crow" might be; how
ever unpalatable the candidates might
prorc. In other words such leaders as
Dr. Miller of the Omaha Herald and
J. Sterling Morton Jon the democratic
aide did then and there implicitly agree
-with such anti-monopoly leapere as
Rosewator, (who is credited with carry
ing the whole of that organization in
his breeches pocket) ex (iov Butler
aind Hon. S. S. Reynolds, Mr. Ashby
And Capt. Stickle that the whole anti
monoply vote ia this state should be
cast lor all the democrats nominated
on that fusion ticket, in consideration
of which it was then and there agreed
and understood between these leaders
that the whole democratic vote in the
etate should be cast for all the anti
monopolists ou the "fusion" ticket and
of course this agreement extends to
members of congress. In fact it is now
aaid that these leaders cut and dried
in advance the congrssional nomina
tions at this "fusion" state convention;
and this was so whether such men as
Gen Vifquain knew it or not. The
democrats ma have obtained the larg
er share of the nominations, but no
mutter about that, so long as the par
ties agreed they ought to "abide by it.
liut what do wTo now see? Did any
man ever know of a "dicker" m which
somebody was not "stuck" to use the
common expression? No sooner had
the nominations reached Dr. Miller in
Omaha than he placed over the beat!
of this "fusion ticket the words "Dem
ocratic nominations." In plain words
the object in part, had been accom
plished which the d'rewd democratic
leaders had in view. They threw bait
to catch the anti-monoply vote and
they thought if they could corral it in
the democratic fold this fall it would
stay there. What mattered it that
hundreds of republicans were thus de
livered over the democracy and to J.
Sterling Morton, the alleged Railway
lobbyist as the Bee now charges. It
was the only way that the democracy
had to increase its vote in the statel
Its leaders were looking to the future
Of course the Omaha Herald should,
have placed over the nominations
mide tho words, "union" or "fusion"
nominations. On the other hand, what
does the action of Rose water clearly in
dicate? His newspaper is opposing
Morton for governor and thereby indi
rectly supporting Gov. Dawes! In oth
er words the king the head and front
of the anti-monoply movement, is al
ready openly stabbing the cnief demo
crat of this " "fusion" ticket- Such
treachery will meet its reward!
Does any man suppose that the
democrats will not retaliate on some
one or upon all of the anti-monopoly
candidates. It is thus shown that if
the real object which the democratic
leaders had in view was accomplished
in part, the election of Morton was an
other part of that object, and when the
Bee, of Omaha stabs Morton in the
back, what must the rank and file of
his party be expected to do? The Bee
openly tells the anti-monopolists vote
against Morton. , . , ,
We hardly know what kind of ma
terial the average democrat is made,
but we do know that like all of us he is
human. He has his likes and dislikes;
ho will from feelings of pride and kind
ness often vote for his own townsmen,
but we do not measure him correctly
if he Roes to the polls on election day
this fall and votes for anti-monopolists
knowing and feeling all the time that
his andidate for governor is being
'eecretly rlaughtered at the behest ot
the Bee and by the very men whose
leaders agreed that Morton should
bare the hearty and full support of
Democrats will reward the treachery
of the Bee and the anti-monopolists as
it deserves. It crops out. of the speeches
of the young men sent out from the
democratic headquarters that the
1'emdcratfl do not propose to submit to
this outrage. .Democratic speakers

We could wish that brethren might
for jun one campaign dwell in
unity, but the warefarc has gone on
too long already to make that posiblc.
The feeling of revenge have peimeated
every school district in the itate and
still the Bee continues to put its knife
into Morton! The result Of this is that
the sensible anti-monopolist the man
who does not care to he bold out, is
looking the ground over, and has about
concluded that his old party is entitled
under such circumstances to his
support. The republican anti-monopolists
would be silly indee.1 to climb
vocr tlie fence into the democratic
ranks. He went far enough when he
agreed to support anti monopoly; and
to advance it lie would voto for some
democrats, but to be sold out in a
wrangle among leaders was never any
part of his purpose. This then is the
oncgieal reason why reports aro com
ing in fiom all over this and other con
gressional districts to the efiect that
the bottom is dropping out of the fus
sion ticket. The Bee's scalping knife
is out and whetted sharp to take Mor
ton's scalp, and the democrats have
drawn their knives and they arc flash
ing in the .sunlight to take the scalp of
Capt. Stick'e and other anti-monopoly
nominees. It is not a republican fun
eral and all lepublicans can do is to
mwii t.luMr ranks for the return of all
who may wish to shout in November.
Republicans now see that the leaders
of the anti-monopoly movement have
sold out the organization to the domo
erati so that one man might obtain a
eongreiimal nomination in the sec
ond district. O. J

A sad accident occtired in our
neighborhood last Friday. A young
man by the name of Ellet Rise, aged
15 years, went out with Obe Harvey to
haul hay. Thinking there would be a
good chance to get some chickens, he
took a shot gun with him. In moving
the gun from the hay rack in some
wav the hammer caught and the gun
went off, both loads passing through
his bowels. He lived about two hours
in terrible agony and then expired.
The parents have our deepest sym
pathy. Besides the heart rending
grief he was the only child that was
lpn'e enough to be of much help to
them. They will have a hard struggle
to get along and take care of their ,six
little ones, one of which is cripplo.

tle sum of $5,785.50. But few of his
neighbors have been let into the con

little fortune. And what is most re
markably strange in the affair is that
our neighbor ranked as major in the
nrun during the late unpleasantness,
and yet has never used the title of dis
tinction to which he is entitled. Some
men are modest surely.
Well, the Guide Rock nine played
the Red Stockings, of Burr Oak, at

brought home Jwith them about $150
of Kansas collateral Your correspondr
ent was in error when he in a forme
issue spoke of the Red Stockings as be
ing the second nine, etc. The fact is
they are the best of the two clubs of
that village, and it reflects great credit
on our bovs that they got away with
the Reds at all. Rocket.
