Several of the pops now say they

That there is "many a slip be

demonstrated at Antdoy Tuesday.
The pops had scoured a majority of
the Broken Bow delegation to the
convention for fusion for sheriff ,
judge , clerk , etc. , and they felt
jubilant over their chances. How
their countenances did change when
the news reached the city that the
convention defeated fusion 83 to < 17 ,
The certificates in last week's Republican <
publican , given by the county Irons
urtr , and showing that Prof. Lewis
haa paid several dollars tax money
into the treasury , knocks the poor
old Beacon's argument into
cooked hat. The Beacon's future is
not so very bright , a tut in the blear
of its oycs it grasped at what it
thought was a straw , but its last
hope has now vanished , Callaway
Loon Czolgo/ his written con
fession , says in part that "In Clove-
laud I road books on socialism and
met a great many socialists in the
west. " "During the last live yearn
I have had as friends anarchists in
Chicago , Cleveland , Detroit and
other western cities and I suppose
I became more or less bitter. "
"But what slurtod the craze to kill
was a looturo a little time ago by
Emma Goldman. She was in
Cleveland and I and other anarchists
wont to hear her. She sot mo on
lire Her doctrine that all rulers
should bo exterminated was that
act me to thinking. " From
Czolgoez'u method of reasoning

lo anarchy and anarchy loads to an
unuontrolablo desire to murder.
While it does not follow that all
eooialintH will become anarchists , it
shoWri the result in his caHc , There
in but ono safu rule and that is to
adhere strictly to the teaching of
Chribt in which wo are admonished
to bo submieHivo to the nowors that

that nolH hnnsolf up against the
government or has for its object
the destruction of the government
and the death of its rulers should bo
treated as traitors and the penalty
life imprisonment , without possi.
bility of pardon.
The Beacon filled a half column
of upaoe last wick in a vain endeav
or lo crawfish on its former state-
mentjtliat John Lewis was not a
tax payer , inbtoad of frankly ac
knowledging its error. The tax
certificates copied in the Rui'unu-
OAN two weeks ago was a
knock out for which the "poor old
Beacon was not prepared. For
the further information of the
Beacon" wo will state that wo are
prepared to show tlut the land tax
paid by John W. G. Lewis , although
the reoordH may show it in his
father's namebelongs to him and

It is reported that Janon Evans
wan the only pop candidate that at
tended the democratic convention
and that the delegates from his
homo precinct withdrew from the
convention immediately after the
convention voted to nominate a
candidate for register of deeds. Of
course Evans was not a delegate ,

O '
Should Mrs. J. J. Tooloy accept
the nomination tendered her Tues
day for co\mty \ superintendent by
the democrats , there is no question
but the race will bo between her
and John Lewis. No stronger
nomination could have boon raado
by that party.

The nomination of Josh Woods
of Loup township by the democrats
is i strong ono. Ho is ono of thu
eldest stockmen in Ouster county.
Ho was hero when the writer came
twenty-three years ago and was
then a ranchmen on the South Loup.

A party that will endorse the ac
tion of its ollicora in violating their
sworn duty for political offoot is
not worthy of the confidence of the
public and should bo relegated to
Hope For ( ho How.
Broken Bow has n rumor that the
Burlington's freight divisions at
Seneca and Rayonna are to bo abolished
ished and a new division establish
ed at the Bow. This would make
a division 192 miles long from
Lincoln to Broken Bow , and an
other 190 miles from Broken Bow
to Alliance. The rumor was not
denied at Burlington headquarters
this morning but nothing definite
could bo learned Boo.
Another Issue spoiled.
Nebraska democracy ib to bo piti
ed. Free silver is deader than a
smilt ; antioxpaueion has collapsed ;
free-trade has boon knocked into a
cooked hat by treasury Btaotiatioe ;
the sultan of Sula can't bo kept
on the stage ; Merle llanna tefuscs
to grow horns or split his hoofs ;
the price of farm products remains
high ; McKinley will not doolaro
himself emperor and there has boon
no oonscriptou of the young men of
the country to fill up the ranks of
the standing army to oppress the
people , and especially to rivet the
yoke on the nocks of the poor.
There was much rejoicing and chat
tering when Bartloy was p\roled :
and the democratic heart , which
had boon feebly pulsating in demo
cratic boot. " , suddenly began a
livelier boating. Hero was eonic-
thinc { to Htir Iho blood. Hut before
the Htato convention , disavowed any
ondorsmont of iho policy upon
which the fusion issue hunters
would base their-fi ht.
Foxes have holes , the biida of
the air have nests , orphans Imvo
asylums , but the rattled and discot-
ftiiiouists have nowharo to lay their
aching heads. Fremont Tribune.
Ju > Note Of Despair.
One fact in connection with the
recent drought mupt have Htrtiek
oven the most casual observer of
passing events , In all the accounts
that have come from thocst of
crops burned up and expectations
disappointed there has boon no note
of depiir ,
No fact indicates the great ad
vance the country has made dining
the past five years more than this
does. Lot any ono imagine , if ho
can , the r suit of such a drought as
that just ended coming in IS DC.
The country was then laboring
under the disasters brought on by
Grover Cleveland's low Tariff policy.
The production of manufacttucs
had been cut down in every direc
tion and in some instances it had
ceased entirely. If a long continued
and widespread drought had oc
curred in the summer of 1805 the
lees and suffering entailed would
have boon almost incalculable. It
would have needed yoais to recover
from it.
Now , thanks to live years of
Protection , the countrv is rich. It
has a largo reserve force which it
can draw upon in casu of need.
Consequently the loss in crops by
the recent drought will not moan a
reduction to poverty as it would
have dene in 1895 , but only a re.
duotion of the expected deposit in
the savings bank by the farmer and
Iho workingmau. This can be
berne without complaint. And
that is why there is no noto'of defi-
pair iti Western comment on the
drought Philadelphia "Press. "

Dealing With ISMICS-
Ono great characteristic of the re
publican party is that it takes
either ono side or the other of any
issue which it happens to encounter
and carries on the war for the prin
ciple it beliovoa to be right regard
less of what the public thinks of it.
As en example the revenue measure
known as the McKmley bill was
unpopular ; but the republican party ,
behoving it to bo right , stood by its
position , and the result was the de
feat of MoKtnloy for the governor ,
ship of Ohio. But the republican
party swerved not an inch from ita
position , and the outcome proved it
to bo in the nght. The MoKinley
tariff was vindicated and the repub
lican principle of protection slio\\n
to the high statesmanship by tbo
unparalleled growth and develop
ment of American manufacturing
industries. On Iho either hand tbo
democratic party nlways takes tha
aide of an issue which appeals to
the uneducated masses , regardless
of right or wrong , simply us a vote
catcher. The republican party deals
with issues that are alive and it deal
with thorn fearlessly and iutollo
gently but the democratic party is
afraid of a live issue , and invariably
manufactures some issue of straw
calculated to draw the votes of the
unthinking at every recurring clue
An example in point may bo founc
in the present campaign in this
county. For ton yoaru the county
has boon under the absolute confro
of the populiHt-doniooratio-fusiou
combine. During all that time the
utmost limit of taxtation has beet
levied , and in some cases the lira ;
has been overreached. A year ago
the election showed that on Jnuuar ;
1 , 1901 , a republican board of sup
ervisors would assemble to atlmin
ister the affairs of the county. The
fusiouists aaw that they would need
an issue for use in the oominq elec
tion , and at the last mooting of the
outgoing fusion board the tax levy
for 1901 was out dowti from ' the
maximum limit which had been
used to the last dollar during the
past ten years of "reform , " to seven
mills. Thus the republican party
found itself with the affairs of the
county on its hands and but half ol
the rovouue that had boon used by
