George Porter seems to have a
clear field as a candidate for the
Republican , nomination for regis
ter of deeds aud it is right that
he should. If we could always
get as good men as Porter for
candidates it would not be neces
sary for us to devote so much
attention to polities because we
could rest assured that the
county business would be well
taken care of.

If we Republicans do not wake
up to the demands of the people
for a lower tariff upon the neces
sities of life , our Democratic
friends , the enemy , will give ua
a surprise something like the
congressional election of 1890.
This Democratic upheaval was
followed by the election of Grover -

reform expression of the people

are at present leaving the latch

One of the most commendable
things about the 4th of July
celebration was the fact that the
day was a very peaceable one.
Af ) a usual thing several arrests
are made and very often a fight
occurs. But there was nothing
of the kind here on July 5th and
tVie marshalls of the day had
nothing to do but see the celebra
tion. The people were kept so
busy all of the time seeing the
events on the prouram that they
didn't have time to stop and.
think of making trouble.
The public square has been so
wet and muddy since the rains
almost two weeks ago that it is
almost out of commission so far
as its being a pleasant place to
spend your leasure time is con
cerned. It was too muddy for
the celebration and too muddy
for the people to attend the band
concert Saturday oveuing. This
is due to the fact that it is so
low. The sewerage1 system of
the city seems to be buch as to
run a considerable part of the
water that falls through the
streets around the square. The
public square needs filling up
and we need a sewerage system
to carry off the surplus water ,
Don't think because the report

that he ought to know who you

if he sees you greet some friend
that he knows who they are and
where they are from. We aim

We try to become familiar with
names and faces if possible , but
during the years past we have
been to church and failed to see
you there ; we have hung around
the town pump , but some of you
weren't there ; we have loafed on
the street ; we've even risked our
reputation on back streets on
dark night but you weren't all
there. And we'll be hanged if
we know where to find you all.
So if you are going or coming or
know anybody cutting up queer
capers let us know.
It is rumored that the letters
threatening Governor Shalleu-
berger with assassination for
signing the 8 o'clock closing law
and supposed to have been sent
by an employee of one of the
saloon keepers of Omaha has
been sent to him in order to im
press more strongly upon the
minds of the people of Nebraska
the fact that the forward march
of the temperance movement
means that several thousand men
are go'ug ' , to be thrown out of
employment. No doubt the
closing of saloons by the
temperance workers does compel
a gn-at many men to find new
employment and perhaps their
remuneration is not so high for
a time alter the change but this
is a small matter when you con
sider the thousands of men whom
they , as liquor sellers , render
incapable of earning a good liv
ing and supporting a family.
Political Conventions )
A law passed by the last
Legislature provides that a state
convention shall be held by the
various parties on the last Tues
day in July. This will make the
convention this year come on
July 27th , or a week from next
Tuesday. The law also provides
that a delegate county conven
tion shall be held at a date prior
to the time of the state conven
tion. The law does not say how
these delegates to the county
convention shall be chosen. If
conventions are to be held ac
cording to this law before July
27th to elect a county committee
and delegates to the state con
vention it is high time that the
chairman of the party committees
in this county get busy. The
law goveining the new political
convention is as follows :
Sec. 1. Party Committees.
The state , congressional , judicial
and legislative committees of
the various political parties
shall be chosen in such manner
as may be determined by the
state central committee of each
respective party. County com
mittees shall be selected by the
delegate convention. The
various officers and committees
now in existence shall exercise
the power and perform the duties
herein prescribed until their
successors are chosen in accor
dance with this act.
Sec. 2 Conventions. The
various political parties shall
hold a delegate state convention
on the last Tuesday of July , of
each year. Said convention
shall formulate and promulgate
a state platform , shrill select a
state central committee. No
action shall be taken by said
state convention , either foe or
against any person who is or
may be a candidate for any office
that is to be voted on at the next
There shall be held a delegate
county convention in each county
prior to the time of holding the
state convention is provided for
in this section , at which conven
tion the delegates to the state
convention and the members of
the county central committee
shall be selected ; said convention
shall transact such other business
as shall properly come before it.
Delegates to national conven
tions of the various political
parties shall be selected at a
state or state and congressional
conventions composed of dele
gates chosen in such manner as
may be determined by the state
committees of each respective
party. Provided that the dele
gates to such state or state and
congressional convention shall
shall be appointed by such com-
uiittes to the several counties
upon the vote cast at the last
election for electors for president
and vice president in the respec
tive counties ; and , provided

be entitled to at least one dele
gate in such convention or
