THE management has decided
not to hold a fair in Harlan county ,
this year , "on account of almost
total failure of crops. "
"PROHIBITION don't prohibit , "
but when the President signed the
"Wilson bill the venders of original
packages shut up shop with sur
prising unanimity. *
OUR next congressman , Hon. N.
Y. Harlan of York , will address
the people of Hayes county , Octo
ber 3d , the third day of the Hayes
county fair. Mr. McKeighan is
expected to speak on the 2d of the
MR. HARLAN is everything that
the most ardent anti-monopoly re
publicans in the Second district
have asked. They will scarcely
vote forgMcKeighan who is the
only alliance nominee with moss
enough on his back to command
democratic endorsement. Call.
EEPRESENTATIVE QUINN of New
York has offered a resolution in the
house instructing the judiciary
committee to inquire , and report
by bill or otherwise , what legisla
tion within the province of the
federal government may be proper
and necessary to prevent corpora
tions engaged in interstate com
merce from employing unjustifiably
large bodies of men denominated
"detectives , " but clothed with no
legal functions. The notice thus
taken of the employment of the
Pinkerton forces by the New York
Central corporation is timely , and
it is to be hoped the judiciary com
mittee of the house will give the
-.subject submitted to it in the reso
lution the prompt consideration
which its importance merits.
'THE Hastings Tribune , quoting
from the Register the items stating
that "Harlan is not a Laird in
point of oratory , not a Hastings in
dash and brilliancy , nor a Laws in
political methods , " wants to know
-"what he is. " Well , sir , to begin
-with , he is the man who will rep
resent the second district of Neb-
Taska in the national congress , after
January 1st , 1891. The fact that
he is a "good citizen and an honor
able man , " which the Tribune has
'to admit , is his first recommenda
tion. He is a man who has the
courage of his convictions and has
dared to stand for them in face of
the opposition of other leaders of
Ms party. His record is clean and
lie stands before the people as a
pure , consistent republican , who
asks not sympathy for his weak
nesses , nor does he complain of his
failures. He is a more intelligent
man than McKeighan , and his
past record , which is public prop
erty , stands out pre-eminently on
the side of the people. No mis
take will be made by electing Har
lan to congress. Minden Register.
A CLASS PARTY.
In the coming struggle the
power and influence of the farmer
is conceded. He holds the balance
of .power and standing together his
forces are invincible. But it would
be a dangerous jower. Not thai
the fanner is less , able or less
worthy to legislate than any other
class of citizens , but legislation by
any class , exclusively , would be
dangerous to the country. The
charge has been made that legisla
tion in Nebraska has been entirely
in the interests of the money power ,
and there is too much truth in the
assertion. Railroads and other
corporations have carried a high
hand and the farm has had to suffer -
fer from it. But the farm has not
been the only sufferer. Business
of all kinds has suffered with the
farmer. Indeed , trade has been an
equal sufferer , and yet it would not
be right to organize all trade avocations
cations to fight all other avocations.
The farmer must not forget that he
cannot stand alone , but that all
trades and avocations that depend
upon him should be his allies in
forming laws that must affect each ,
so that they may bear equally upon
all. A party composed entirely of
farmers or of any other avocation
would not be a representative par
ty , and it would not be a just party
any more than a party composed
entirely of railroad men. Such a
party is not in harmony with the
spirit of our institutions , and rl
would naturally be despotic. . The
Flail sympathizes with the farmer
in the present fight , but as it has
often said , it believes that its only
show is in working through parties
represented by all classes and con
ditions. Fremont Flail.
Among the subjects of chiefest
interest to the people is that of
assessments , and no man not
pledged to work to modify the
outrages practiced , by stringent
laws , should be elected to the leg
islature on any conditions. The
Flail proposes to make this a test
of every nominee , and no man will
get its support that will not pledge
himself to a radical assessment re
form. Nebraska led the way to
high license through the Slocumb
law , and the legislature that pass
ed it work a great and permanent
benefit to the state. Now let Ne
braska lead in the tax reform. As
at present practiced , the poor man
bears the burden of taxation. The
bondholder , the mortgagee and the
capitalist hide and cover and skirk ,
while the man with a little home
stead , a cow and a horse is assess
ed to pay their proportion of ex
penses in running the government.
Let railroads , financiers , mortga
gees and capitalists be brought in
to the harness to pay their just
proportion pf tax , or let them suf
fer a just and severe penalty.
The present practice is an outrage
on the common people and a stigma
on our institutions. The practice
must be remedied. Fremont Flail.
THE PROSPECT INVITING.
The meeting of the congression
al central committee at Hastings ,
Wednesday evening , disclosed an
encouraging condition of affairs in
the Second district. Reports were
had from every county in the dis
trict , and they were almost unani
mously favorable to a greater or
less degree. It was the opinion of
the central committee , publishers
and prominent republicans present
from all over the district that the
active and aggressive campaign
shortly to be inaugurated will
make doubly certain Mr. Harlan's
election , and will result in the
overwhelming discomfiture of Mr.
McKeighan. With the right kind
of work performed Mr. Harlan's
majority will reach handsome pro
portions. And the Republicans of
the Second district propose to do
effective work , this year.
BETTER THAW EXPECTED.
THE corn crop of Nebraska a
month ago was anything but en
couraging. Corn had not matured
and a prevailing drouth caused
fanners to entertain grave fears
that almost an entire failure would
be the result. But the reports foi
the last two weeks have been en
couraging , and as corn has advanc
ed to that.stage where a reasonable
estimate can be made , it is every
where manifest that the yield will
be much larger than was expected
in midsummer. It is true that
there will be a shortage in Neb
raska , but in exceptional cases only
will there be utter failure. The
acreage is larger than last year ,
and with total failures in other
sections , the price received will
more than make good the short
age. The Nebraska farmer who
this year raises twenty or twenty-
five bushels of corn to the acre will
receive as much money for it as
he received last year for his sixty
bushels. Hogs and cattle will in
crease in price , and taken as a
whole , it is safe to predict that the
shortage of corn will not be mater
ially felt. Oats have not yielded
as many bushels as in preceding
years , but careful estimates show
that there will be more than enough
for home consumption , and with
the possible exception of the pota
to crop the product of Nebraska
will be worth as much in dollars
and cents as formerly. Were it
not for the professional agitators
who are shrieking about poverty
and shedding crocodile tears for
the farmers of Nebraska , who are
doing very well compared with
many other states , the nightmare
of hard times would haunt no one.
Public improvements in the towns
and cities are going on ; individual
capital is invested ; laborers find
ample employment at good wages ,
and taken as a whole Nebraska is
enjoying an evening of prosperity
that few western states can equal.
MARRIED Thursday evening ,
August 14th , at the residence of
the bride's parents in Omaha , Mr.
Democratic Party to Miss Wins
Key , the Rev. Peter Her , officiat
ing. The high contracting parties
are well knovn throughout the
state and the ceremony was wit-
nessed-by a large circle of friends
and relatives of the bride and
groom. It was a very delegate
affair , but the conventional rites
were observed with appropriate
zeal. James E. Boyd as first
groomsman escorted the groom to
the ( h ) alter where the bride was
given away by Omaha Delegation.
The only circumstance that marred
the sanctity of the ceremony was
the attempt of one , Calhoun , to
fordid the bans. He was prompt
ly retired with the other foolish
virgins who had no Iler ) in their
lamps. After the ceremony a rare
and riotous collation was spread
for the assembled guests , the
liquors dispensed being the feature
of the feast. Tecurnseh Chieftain.
THE McCooK TRIBUNE gets mad
tears its hair anjd scratches its face
every time a paper in this district
dares to hint , even , thatG.L. Laws
is after the registership at Mc
Cook. If THE TRIBUNE did not
get so frantic and red in the face ,
over the matter , we might think
Daws did not want the plum , but
the very agony of its denial carries
conviction of the truth of the
charge. Laws has his eyes on
that McCook registership and don't
you forget it. Curtis Record. .
THE TRIBUNE has resented all
efforts of a few disgruntled black
guards to maliciously belittle Con
gressman Laws by giving circula
tion to the above unfounded false
hood. We have not been aware of
ihe choler and self-mutilation
above referred to , however. Mr.
Yaughan may relieve his con
science somewhat by admitting his
prevarication and throwing him
self on the mercy of the court.

J. A. Wilcox of McCook , Neb. , formerly
one of oar merchants , who recently joined
his wife in a visit to relatives and friends in
Washington , Fairbury and this vicinity , has
been renewing old acquaintance here the past
week. He has increased wonderfully in avoir
dupois , making him almost unrecognizable.
There is nothhur the matter with Nebraska
climate and living , if Mr. Wilcox is : i sample
of the product. He says that the present
droughty season is the first of the kind they
have had for ten years , and may be the last ,
and that his faith in a grand future for the
state is as strong as ever. Gilman (111. ( ) Star.
The Democrat is glad to state that the arti
cle that appeared in its columns in a late issue
reflecting upon the character of Miss Engel
of McCook was not warranted by facts , and
was an extravagant misrepresentation. The
Democrat was misinformed in regard to the
matter and deeply regrets that the article re
ferred to was published. Benkelman Demo
