The republican rally last Thurs
day afternoon and evening was
quite a BuooeuHcoming HOHOOU after
the crowds had boon hero to the
county fair. The afternoon moot
ing was attended i principally by
farmers , as not many of tbo busi
ness men of tbo city could leave
their business at that hour. The
General is an able and logical
speaker , lie is not a more wind *
bag , that talks at random upon a
basis of assumption or prophecy , but
from his long oxporionoo in public
life , ho has gathered a store of
knowledge that enables him to prove
to his audience , in a most lucid
manner , that his position is oorroot.
His utterances are entirely free
from demagoguery , and the masterly
manner in which ho would recall
instances and history to maintain
his propositions , oould not fail to
carry conviction to his hearers. In
taking up the expansion question ,
ho showed that it had always boon
the policy of the government ; that
Andrew Jackson and Thomas Jefferson -
son wore both expansionists , anc
that in neither case did they consult
the wishes of the obstructionists
but promptly dispatched armies ol
mon to BOO that the laws of onr
government were acknowledged am
respected. The $15,000,000 paid
for the Louisiana purchase , whioh
included the present territory of
Nebraska , was upon the earna prin
oiplo that the $20,000,000 was paid
for the Philippine Islands. If the
latter did not give us absolute owu
orship , the former oould not. If the
Louisiana purchase did not enslave
the inhabitants of the territory , whi
should the latter. Instead it gave
the people freedom , and made thorn
subjects of the best government on
earth , and thn same would bo the
result of the purchase of the Phil
ippine Islands. In the matter of a
protective tariff , ho wont back to
colonial times and showed the no
oossity of a protective tariff at tha
time , and-perpetual demand since
by showing from historical faot tha
when free trade prevailed ID this
country , our imports of manufao
turod goods and products excosdoi
our exports , and that our mills anc
laborers were idle , and times were
hard , while upon the other hand
when a protective tariff has boon ii
force , our factories and men were
all imployed , wages and prices on
farm products good , exports exoeoc
imports , the government revenue
increase , times are easy , and every
On the question of trusts , h
showed that a republican congress
in 1800 , passed a stronger anti-Una
law than has yet boon ndvooatee b ,
the opposition , but under demo
orutio rule it was not enforced ; but
since MoKmley has boon at the
helm , the republican attorney gen
eral has been enforcing the law , by
instituting suits , and in every case
where a decision of the courts has
boon reached , ho has won.
In speaking of President MoKin-
loy's policy in carrying on the war
with the insurgents of the Phillip-
pines , ho stated that ho was per
forming his duty , as the national
executive was compelled to do , Ho
said that congress had declared war
with Spain , and authorized the
raising of an army , and providing
munitions of war to conduct the
campaign. When Spain begged
for peace , ho oould only sign a pro
tocol , granting a cessation of hostili
ties until congress ratified the terms
agreed upon by representatives of
each govornmont. The treaty of
peace , as agreed upon , was ratified
by congress , which gave this gov
ernment Porto Rico and the islands
of the Philippines. Then the fol
lowers of Aguinaldo , whom the
American army had helped to free
from the Spanish yoke , turned upon
their deliverers , and assailed the
Hag and the authority of the United
States. The occupation of the
Philippine Islands by the United
States was not only authorized by
the republicans in the United States ,
but by democracy. Col. Vifquain
says that Col. Bryan resigned his
position as colonel of the Third
Nebraska regiment , to co ; to Wash
ington to UHO his intluonoo with
democratic senators , to got them to
vote for the ratification of the treaty
whioh not only made the United
States absolute owner of the Philip-
> ino Islands , but whioh also pro-
'idod ' for paying the Spanish gov-
rniuont $ 20,000,000 for their pou-
ossious. The republican party and
ho republican administration are
ousiitout and loyal in maintaining
he supremacy of the AmoriOHU
government in the Philippines ,
while those opposed uro lending
heir influence and sympathy to
hose who aio shooting ut the Ameri
can ilag and killing American mon.
The evening UuBdion wai largely
attended. Speeches were made
> Qth by Gen. Grosvcnor and Judge
Llaiuor. Their speeches were both
able and interesting , and elicited
the hearty applause of their audi
ence. Judge Hauior allowed that
IIB opposition came from the busi
ness men and not the farmers.
Among his strongest opponents was
John M. Kagan , of Hastings , attor
ney for the Nebraska Loan & Trust
Co. , whioh has mortgages on a lot
of land in ( Junior county , lie had
always boon a corporation lawyer ,
yet pretends to bo a populist. It
was that class of mon that were
sending out their omisariotj ever the
district , to oppose him and work
for the election of Judge Sullivan.
Messrs. Belts , Blair , Gadd and Bass
favored the audience with iomo
splendid campaign music.
William Miller , the fellow who
attempted to rob the Morna post
office , and Bart Olson , who was
confined in jail for stealing a suit
of clothes , broke jail Tuesday night
and BO far hove made good their es
cape. They took with thorn Peter
flimonaon's horse and delivery wag
on. Deputy U. 3. Marshal Barber ,
of Hastings , had come up Tuesday
evening with a view of taking
Miller to Ansley for preliminary
trial before U. S. Commissioner
Porter. As soon as it was learned
yesterday morning that their pris
oner was gone ho telegraphed to
CourtUud for Shamp Bros , and their
blood hounds. Then ho and U. S
Deputy Marshal Palmer started out
southwest on trail of the fugitives ,
but up to this writing nothing has
been hoard from them. The Shamp
Bros , and their hounds came in on
the 5 o'clock train yesterday even
ing and were put on the trail at
once , but returned this morning
about 8 o'clock , having loat the
trail at Uorrick school house , on
Ash oroes , about fifteen miles south
west of town. They effected their
escape faoin the jail by breaking
the look on the stool cage , after
which they out a hole through the
brick partition wall which lot thorn
into the coal bin whore they made
their exit through an open window.
Sheriff Loiauro was not at home
that night , whioh probably accounts
for their successful escape. The
report that he was out making pop.
speeches wo have not boon able to
verify , as ho came homo in time to
join the phase with the doga and
ho and Billy Blair are still out.
