some kind friend to donate a suit of clothes
nor some free-hearted merchant to sell us a *
suit on time , but to arouse the sympathies of

In a well considered article , the Industrial
Journal says : It-is a popular but palpably
fallacious impression that newspapers are
just what their publishers and editors make
them. They are not I They are to a very
great extent what the business community
where they are published makes them. They
represent the character and merits of the f ,
community far more exactly than they do ( )
the energy and enterprise of their publishers j It
or the ability and ambition of their editors. a
It is within the power of the business men h
of any community to push their loral news
papers forward to a standard impossible of
attainment by any effort of the publishers
with out their co-operation , and in no other a :
direction can an equal measure of effort and 7
expenditure be applied with anything like
equal effect in advancing the interests , not j
only of the community at large but of the tl
individual business man himself , I

Our New Plan.
We , thu phy-dciain of McCook , have been
forced to adopt a new im.a.v with u'
our collections for the following reasons : ' '
1. We have ioiuid it impossible to collect
more than a small portion of our accounts.
2. We have repeatedly found that our bills
have been "left until thu last , " and we have
thus frequently been compelled to borrow
money from the banks to pay our running
3. This has been carried to such and ex
tent that we are forced to stop practice un
less our patrons appreciate our services in a
more substantial manner. For the forgoing
reasons i be it hereby
Resolved , That hereafter we will do
strictly : a cash practice , and whenever any
one of our patrons becomes delinquent , he
shall ' bu notified , and unless satisfactory set
tlement bo made within thirty days thereaf
ter , he shall be put upon the delinquent list
Resolved , That all accounts now on our
books ] shall become delinquent , on Feb. 20 ,
18S9 ] , unless satisfactorily settled bofore that
date. '
Resolved , That we mutually pledge our
selves to refuse to answer all calls from those
found on the delinquent list

An Electric Light Plant Assured.
Alter much prospecting an electric light
plant j is assured ; and it is expected that the
same will be in successful operation within
ninety days. At a special meeting of the
city council held on Monday evening. Messrs.
A. J. Thompson & Co. of the McCook Roller
Mill ; were granted a franchise for twenty-
one years to place and operate a plant in our
city , these gentlemen putting up a ccitilied
check of 5500.0J for the faithful performance
of | their agreement and to indicate the'genu
ine and substantial character of their inten
tions l in the premises. The projectors inform
the writer that operations will be instituted
on the plant at once , and that the same will
be in shape for .business within ninety days ,
should nothing unforseen arise to delay. It
is j proposed to put in both incandescent and
arc systems , at a monthly rental of § 10 and
SI respectively , which figures are usual and
reasonable. The plant for the present will
be j operated by power from roller mill engine.
It ] is the intention to put in a first class plant
hi i every paiticular and to give the city and
our business men and private citizens a good
light 1 at a fair figure. These gentlemen , in
the erection of their mill , have exhibited ex
cellent [ and energetic business qualifications
and The Tuibune feels that the enterprise
has fallen into good and capable hands , and
hopes that our people will give them every
encouragement in their power. AH hail the
electric < light plant !

The Temperance Wavo. I
[ From Iho Denver News. ]
It is consummate folly to attempt toignoro I
tho social * and political revolution that Is In
progress In tho United States under the varl- j I
ous phases of tomperiiuco reform. There la Si
an earnest und wide-spread demand for u satis * w I
factory handling nf the liquor question. Nor 'I
can a greater blunder bo made than to regard S.
tho prohibition vote as a measure of tho Jf H
strength of temperance sentiment. It only % H
represents the extreme view of a reform that 1 H
for many years has attracted to Its service 2 H
vast social , moral and educational influences. 0 H
Its adjustment on u safo and permanent baata [ | H
Is , In pointof importance , second to no Issue jf H
before tho people. It Involves principles of ; ' H
liberty and property Interests that make the ! H
question one of thu greatest moment. The mi * j H
vauco of this sentiment can best be realized • |
by looking at the lulluuiico It has already exert- , M
ed upon legislation. Public opinion hus com- M
pelted tho udoptlou of scleutltlo temperance M
education iu tlio public schools or no less than ' M
eighteen states , besides a United States law M
that rigorously Insures Instructfon In tlieprln- M
clplcs or temperance lu territorial schools. In M
the District of Columbia and lu our military M
and naval academies. Six states Iiavo adopted H
prohibitory laws , to-wlt : Maine , Vermont. M
New Hampshire , ilhodo Island , Iowa and Kim- M
sus. South Dakota is asking admission to tho . M
union , wltn n prohibitory clause iu her coustl- M
tution. Pennsylvania will shortlyoto on tho M
adoption of a similar law , with nu even clmuco M
of success. The measure received "lB.OOOufllr- M
mative votes two years ago in Texas and near- H
ly carried Tennessee. Michigan Is believed to H
be ripe for this extreme view of thu question. M
Half the State has prohibition now under the |
county local option plan. The same method |
is fast giving prohibition to Missouri and live H
other Southern states , as well as to most of H
the Northern states that have not adopted pro- H
hlbitorv constitutional amendments. Tho H
enormous spread or the prohibitionist idea |
must be apparent to any man that notes cur- K
rent history. It may be an extravagant con- U
ccption und hopelessly hostile to reason , but |
it is none the less a political power. Formally H
supported by the most influential evangelical H
church , it has become aggressive and is rally- H
ing for battle j H
To Advertise Nebraska. M
( . From Omaha Herald. ] H
A movement is on toot hi some parts or the H
state tending toward the securing or tin ap- H
propriatiou from the legislature for udvertls- H
ing Nebraska. luusmuch as the state pro- j H
sents such an attractive field for capitalists H
and homeseokers , tho common belief is that H
the movement is n good one. Other states H
have been advertised iu this way ami good re- H
suits have accrued , while as yet Nebraska's H
government has dune nothing. The result of H
this neglect is apparent. H
At the various railroad headquarters it is H
said that at present theamount of immigration H
is far In excess of what it has been for many i H
mouths in fact for a year. Instead of these 'iiBBa '
immigrants coming to Nebraska they are going r H
westward to Washington territory and Ore- H
gon , which have been largely advertised , and H
even Missouri i3 excelling this statu in this re- H
In speaking of this question Monday , Gen- H
oral Passenger Agent Francis of the Hurling- H
ton & Missouri remarked that Nebraska owed H
thu greatest portion of her prosperity to rail- j H
road advertising. Every railroad iu the stato H
has in time3 past flooded the east with circu- H
lars , folders , etc. , all of which set forth the H
state's-ad vantage- the best manner , but at H
the present time the public should awaken to j H
the fact that the railroads alone arc not suf- . H
ficient to carry on the work. Advertising is H
expensive ard should be more evenly distrib- H
uted. Sot that the railroads were to be mi- H
derstood as desiring to quit the work or dfs- H
tributing printed matter , for thu railroads D
were advertising now more than ever , but H
railroad folders , and pamphlets are not alone H
sullicicur. Something else niudt be used. H
