A Blow at Dcupotimn.
That was a hard blow that our
'Jccm" McXcny gave the indepen
dent part- at Mindcn the other day.
during the session of their Judicial
convention: The convention wanted
to exact an un-American pledge from
a free American citizen, such as only
despots arc in the haDit of exacting
from their subjects, but Mr. McNcny
was not to be caught by any such
chaff. If he coull not be nominated
on his merits, unpledged and unham
pered, he did not want the office, and
money nor fame would not induce him
to sacrifice his rights as a citizen in
any such manner, and all good citizens
should frown upon every attempt of
an-political, secret or other institution
that attempts to tramp upon custo
mary rights of the people to be free
anduntramcled. 'The Mindcn Gazette
says of Mr. McNcny: McNcny was
next on the program and when pre
sented with a paper for his signature,
emphatically declined. It created a
sensation and if a dynamite bomb had
been thrown upon the stage it would
not have created more of a surprise.
McNeny made his speech, but it was
not the kind expected. He denounced
in plain English such an exhibition of
demagogueism and attempt to degrade
and disgrace the judiciary by pledges
calculated for the benefit of one class
against all others regardless of justice
or equity. It was a manly, honorable
course to pursue, in contradistinction
to the eager and over anxious spirit of
all the other candidates to get up and
sign away their manhood, then boast
of the act. It is needless to sa that
McNcny was not voted for again.
Only a few more days till the old
soldicr' reunion takes place. The
people of the country should bear this
in mind, and also bear m mind that
they arc specially invited to come and
take part. It will be one of the
chances of a life-time to have a good
time and help honor the brave boys
of 'Gl-G." who did so much to preserve
the union, besides doing that, the en
tertainment afforded would be well
worth your while, if you come for
nothing else Everything is being
done to make the reunion enjoyable
that money and hard work can do, and
The Chief expects fully -40,000 people
in Red Cloud on that occasion, and
hopes that it expectations will be
fully realized. Come everyone with
"no malice aforethought" but bent
upon having the best time of your
lives and The Chief will proclaim
your happiness from the house tops.

The committee who have the ol-
dier's reunion in charge, are desirous
of erecting an arch of welcome at the

Crudhed ly A Switch Engine.
Yesterday morning at about 7 IT),
as the day yardmen were taking their
engine out for the day's work, Lew
Hcrrick met the awful death that all
train men may expect at any time.
The engine was backing down to
ward the freight depot, and Mr. Hcr
rick was standing on the rear foot
board. Without any apparent cause
he suddently sunk to the grownd in
front of the unmerciful wheels, and
his body ws.s mangled in horrible
shape. The wheels of the tank pa.-sed
over his left limb, crushing it in atoms.
When the ash pan of the engine
struck him there was not enough room
for the body to pass under it, and
therefore he was rolled and dragged a
distance of sixty feet before the en
gine could be stopped. When the
Eye reporter arrived the body was
directly under the ash pan and wedged
there so tight that it was impossible to
extricate it until appliances were used
to raise the engine about four inches,
when the lifeless, mangled remains
were dragc d out and placed on a
stretcher. Willing hands bore the
body into the S. C & 1 offices and Dr.
Coit. the company surgeon was sum
moned. TIic only cause known for him fall,
ing from the foot board that he must
have fainted, or been rendered help
less from a dose of morphine which it
is reported he had taken before he
went to work. He leaves a wife and
three children, who have the deepest
sympathy of all in their affliction.
He was a member of the Switch
man's Mutal Aid Association, and
carried $1,000 insurance in that
organization Missouri Valley Eye.
The Chief and family in company
with Mr. Bcntly and family drove out
to Oliver McCall's farm residence on
Tuesday, for the purpose of looking at
Mr. McCall's fine orchard. Mr. M.
has lived in Webster county 20 years
and in that time has been very suc
cessful in his farming pursuits. He
set out, year ago. a large number of
fruit trees, which now bear marks of
his wisdom and the fact that 30U can
raise fruit in Nebraska. His trees arc
overburdened with delicious fruits of
all kinds, until he has been called on to
prop the limbs to keep the trees from
breakiugdown under their hoavy loads.
Our reporter counted 2G apples on a
little twig about IS inches long and as
large around as a peucil, aud the bal
ance of the tree was similarly loaded.
The orchard is well worth one's while
to look at, and Mr. McCall is to be
congratulated on having so many Gae

The W. C. T. I. Convention held
in our city Aug. 20th axd 21st, prov
ed to be quite a success. The exer
cises of Thursday evening were both
interesting and instructive. The reci
tation by Miss HIanchc Scllars, and
the solos by Miss Lillic Smith and
Sirs. S. J. Mailey, were especially en
tertaining. The address given by
Mrs. Jones of Hastings, state corre
sponding secretary of the W. C. T. Ii ,
was very attentively listened to by the
aud.cncc. In her plca.Mng way she
captivated all prcAent as she presented
some of the needs of our work.
The Friday morning session was
opened by devotional exercises led
by Mrs. Jones, after which an hour
was spent over the question box.
Many valuable answers were given
by Mrs. Jones to questions on Sabbath
observance, social punty etc.
Friday afternoon was spent in at
tending to the business of the con

and Cowles Union were present.
After very appropriate address given
by Mrs. Truman of this city and a

Cowles, we listened to the annual
address of our president. Next came

Editor Hei C1.01 1 Chief A a
kind of a stemwinder for the people
who arc talking of having laws passed
to have their debts wiped out every sev
en years, should remember that scrip
torial passage "I'ay what thou oweM,
owe no man." It would be a little
hard for .-ome, but nevertheless it is
the only honest method. No man or
pirty, should M) far forget themselves
as to recognize such doctrines as are be
"'5 constantly presented by some of
le demagogues of the day. If any-
th ;n ord ;s honortUe onc
thin" above an other, it is to pay your
honest debts, and Pro 'Bono 'Publico,
believes, that no man or set of men will
ever prosper and advocate the abolition
of debts and the many other falliccs
that go to make up the various princi
ples of the Independent Pasty. It may
flourish for awhile but it cannot stand
the storms of honest criticism nor the
well directed blows that it will continue
to receive as long as the adhcrcnta of
the party maintain them. The princi
ples of the party arc built upon an un
certain foundation and unless the
abuses in their partj be corrected
the rain will come and d -wn will go
their "meat hou-e" as the boys say,
and when they let go their hold on
the various wild an visionary schemes
then their doom n icalcd, for their
platform does not embrace any other
great principcl, that is not embodied in
the platforms of the republican party.
People may howl about their condi
tion from now until doomsday- and
after that there is nothing to be said
in their defence, "but that the Amen
can people arc in a better condition,
financially than an; other on earth.
This statement cannot be satisfacto
rily contradicted except by people who
do so to acquire office or to gain suprc

these days of enlightenment that peo

themselves to be duped by such people
