Those seventeen Democrats , of

they desire re-election.
George Porter seems to have a
clear Geld as a candidate for the
Republican , nomination for regis
ter of deeds and it is right that
he should. If we could always
get aa 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.
Noah was one of the earliest
advertisers. He advertised that
he would sail on a certain date.
Those who did not believe in
advertising failed to yet tickets
aud were left out in the wet
without umbrellas or bathing
suits. As most of thorn could
not swim , they took I o the trt-es
and became monkeys. The
origin of the monkey is now
The candidates are now get
ting down to business and the
race for office is warming up. If
each voter at the coming primary
and election is as anxious to vote
for the best man as each one of
the candidates is to get his vote
there will be no mistake made.
It is every man's duty to study
the list of candidates and pick
the men he believes to be the
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 gi"e ua
a surprise something like the
congressional election of 1800.
This Democratic upheaval was
followed by the election of Grover -
er Cleveland. That was a tariff
reform expression of the people
and as history repeals itself , we
are at present leaving the latch
string out for the Democrats to
One of the most commendable
things about the 4th of July
celebration was the fact that the
day was a very peaceable one.
As 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
the marshalls of the day had
nothing to do but see the celebra
tion. The people swere kept so
busy all of the time seeing the
events on the prourara 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 evening. This
is due to the fact that it is so
low. The sewerage system of
the city seems to be s > uch 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
er sees you getting on the train
that he ought to know who you
are and where you are going , or
if he sees you greet some friend
that he knows who they are and
wheic they arc from. We aim
to get all the news , but you may
be one we don't happen to know.
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 a
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 Shallen-
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 going to be thrown out of
ebployuient. No doubt the
closing of saloons by the
temperance workers does compel
a great many men to find new
employment and perhaps their
remuneration is not so high for
a time alter the change but this
is a smull matter when you con-
aider 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 doea 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 I
and legislative committees of
the various political parties

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
en the last Tuesday of July , of
each year. Said convention
shall formulate and promulgate
a state platlorui , shrill select a
state central committee. No
action shall be taken by said
state convention , either for 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

in this section , at which conven

tions of the various political
parties shall be selected at a

uiittes to the several counties
