THE McKi-.iiey tariff bill was
sentenced and hung by the people
and they will now proceed to give
it a trial.
IT doth now appear that Mr.
Omaha , of Boyd , can not read his
title clear to the coveted guberna
" ! N defeat , " says the Tecumseh
Chieftain , "L. D. Richards is a
greater and more imposing figure
than Jas. E. Boyd in victory. "
THE players' league has finally
gone the way of the grass and the
big cities will not try to support
two base ball teams , next year.
THERE is a probability that the
entire state ticket elect will be
contested by the independent
party- . ,
THE Gosper County Citizen takes
consolation in the fact that the re
publican state ticket received a
larger vote than either the demo
cratic or independent tickets.
T. Y. POWDERLY was re.-elected
Grand Master Workman of the
Knights of Labor at the Denver
meeting , this week. At his re
quest his salary was reduced from
5 to 3 thousand dollars.
THERE is a remarkable iiuani-
rnity of expression among the coun
try newspapers touching the thin
ness at Omaha of the crust sepa
rating us from Pluto's dread abode.
There is also some solicitude lest
Herr Eosewater should drop into
an incipient fissure.
IT may be true , as Speaker Eeed
maintains , that the Republicans
would not have been defeated this
year if the new tariff law had been
passed six months earlier ; and on
the other hand there is some rea
son , THE TRIBUNE belives , that a
more prolonged discussion of cer
tain features of that measure would
have increased the number of
worms in our lettuce.
EOSEWATER'S fight is not over.
It looks as though a prohibitory
law might be passed. Omaha
played the traitor toEichards , and
republican senators and representa
tives have a sharp knife with
which to stab the traitors.l Pow
ers was sold in Omaha , and the alliance -
, liance members are ready to give
Omaha an object lesson. Pass the
law. York Eepublican.
THERE have been only four law
yers elected to the legislature in
Kansas , this year , and one of them
Judge Eeeder of Ellis county
is likely to be ousted on a contest ,
as he has a majority of only two
votes , and the Alliance claims that
lie secured his election by corrupt
means. It will be necessary to
draft in a number of farmers to
fill out the judiciary committee in
THE greatest spectacle Nebraska
has ever witnessed is that of Old
Democracy , bald-headed , grizzled ,
toothless , tobacco-stained , and
highly perfumed with the ancient
odors of rock and " "
rye , "shying up"
to that gentle , blushing , rustic
damsel , Mis Sal Liance. The
leery old reprobate really thinks
he is making a mash , but Sal
knows better , and the public is
laughing in its sleeve at so silly an
affectation of holy affection. Hub.
IN one part of his two column
card explaining why he did not
support the republican state ticket
the editor of the Bee says that "the
anti-'monopoly platform was stig
matized as a delusion and a snare. "
In almost the next paragraph he
boasts : "It is true that I framed
the greater part of the platform. "
If he framed it nobody could be
blamed for considering it a delu
sion and a snare. It is time for
Colonel Eosewater to change the
subject. He is giving himself
away. State Journal.
THOSE who believe most firmly
in the agricultural future of the
counties in the western part of the
state that are JIOAV suffering from
the dry season are the people who
reside in that very district. They
do not want to leave because they
are satisfied that if the winter can
be weathered through there will
be no trouble about good crops
and plenty of means in the future.
This is the true Nebraska spirit.
The drought will never be able to
conquer a region filled up with
that kind of people. Lincoln
OFFICIOUS correspondents are
already sending out over the
country stories about the tumble
"distress of the farmers of Nebras
ka. " That business must be stop
ped. There is distress on the
frontier , but Nebraska is rich
enough and liberal enough to re
lieve all suffering without a gen
eral call for aid. In fact , begging
in any other state for our people
will not be permitted under any
circumstances. There are seventy -
five counties that are able to take
care of themselves and the unfor
tunate communities on the extreme
frontier , and they will do it
promptly. Now let that settle it.
"I , " said a. L. Laws , "did not seek
a renomination. I am not much of a
politician , hub I can see some of the
plainest signs of the times. Before I
am buried I want time to take my boots
