THE Curtis Courier calls Mc-
Koighau "a rubber lipped dema
gogue. " _
A STRONG effort is being made
by leaders of the people's party of
Ns/Araska / to have the national head-
'qurArters of that organization locat-
" eoh'iii Omaha.
SOME of the papers throughout
the st to seem somewhat anxious
for W. E. Andrews to take the
stump. He will do so after the Mc
Cook convention , and will make
some rattling fiuo speeches too.
THE decision of the Pope , in re
gard to what is called the "Cahen-
sly agitation" in favor of foreign-
born bishops of different national
ities for foreign born Catholics in
America is as follows : "European
immigrants in the United States
must coalesce as one people aud
form one nation. " Well said ,
wisest Pope who has lived in a hun
dred years and more ! Would that
all the politicians had as much
sense as the Pope.
THERE are no less than five
candidates seeking the republican
nomination for congress in the
fifth congressional district. If
Parson Andrews is not the success
ful one , it is doubtful if any of the
five will succeed in capturing the
prize , if it may be so termed.
That is the view of prominent re
publicans. If a dark horse , 110 one
knows who the man would be.
Col. E. D. Webster and John C.
Allen are both favorite dark horses.

THE influence of the independ
ent national convention Avill be
felt in this state. A good many
people will attend it out of'curiosi
ty , and will be won by the appear
ance of strength aud ability dis
played. Seventeen hundred dele
gates are a good many , and if they
were the only independents in the
country they would make a good
showing at the convention. There
leaders are men of long experience
in deniagoguery and have a good
deal of ability , natural and ac
quired , and their meeting in Oma
ha will strengthen the independ
ent party in Nebraska. York

THIS is Presidential election
year , and according to precedent
it should be a dull one for business ,
but let us hope that people of this
great country , instead of allowing
a presidential election to interfere
with their business affairs , will
read the themselves
papers , acquaint -
selves with the great political is
sues that will enter into the con
test , and then go to the polls and
cast their ballots in accordance
with their honest convictions , leav
ing great and costly political de
monstrations , such as have hither
to characterized presidential cam
paigns , to those who make politics
a business , and thrive by it at the
expense of the rank and file. In
such campaign every citizen should
do his own thinking and consult
the papers , reading not simply the
kind that favor his political views ,
but both sides , and make up his
MOURNING for dead , aud dumb
sense of horror which follows in the
wake of sudden and awful disaster
are giving place at Wellington and
HarperKausasto an interest in the
work of repairing the fearful dam
age wrought by the recent cyclone.
Preparations are already under way
for rebuilding the ruined districts
and wiping out the traces of havoc
which the storm left in its deadly
wake. This prompt recoil illus
trates in an eloquent manner the
Kansas spirit. It exemplifies the
admirable courage of a people
who have never been vanquished
. by misfortunes and who triumph
-tover all discouragements by the ex-
larcise of a faith which is mightier
than any obstacle which can arise
to test it. "To the stars through
trials , " sums up in one vivid epi
gram the history of a state which
owns all of its greatness to the
plucl ; and energy of its people.
THE trip of President Harrison
to Rochester to assist at the cere
mony of dedicating the soldiers'
monument on Decoration day was a
very pleasant one to all concerned.
At every place along the route
the president was most enthusias
tically greeted , and the short ad
dresses he made at various points
were as bright , patriotic , sensible
and appropriate as those delivered
on his grand tour last summer.
Generally after the president
had finished , the crowd demanded
"Wanamaker , " and the announce
ment had to be made that Mr.
Wanamaker was not one of the
party. This compliment to the
postmaster-general , who has been
more than any other man in the
cabinet the target of the opponents
of the administration , and is accus
ed of every imaginable misdemean
or , is an indication that a wise and
able administration of the post-
office departuent , the department
that comes the nearest to the every
day life of the people , is appreciat
ed , no matter what the politiciaus
may say about it. Journal.
THE victory of Colonel Peter
Jackson should be productive of
genuine satisfaction , in that it lays
on the shelf the fellow Slavin ,
whose recent tour of America in
company with the disreputable
Mitchell was prolific of drunken
brawls and loud boasts. Jackson
is a quiet , Avell-behaved fellow ,
and more of a gentleman than his
white opponents. His very victory
over Slaviu effectually disposes of
the theory that Slavin would have
any chauce with Sullivan. But
Jackson might have if Sullivan
would consent to meet him. There
is no color line in prize fights any
more thaji there is in dog fights.
THE Baring Bros , of London
have wiped up 85,000,000 of the
debt which they owe to the Bank
of London. The recollection of
that day in November 1890 , when
the whole financial world was shak
en by the rumors of the failure of
that great banking house , will
never disappear from the memory
of tradesmen. The prompt rescue
by the Bank of London was a noble
act and one for which it deserves
great credit in preventing a cala
mity well nigh incalculable in its
FRANK MELBOURNE , the Ohio
rain-maker , has left Arizona in
disgust. He had a contract in that
territory to make rain for a certain
section in such quantities as might
be ordered. But some rain being
ordered he failed to produce it , the
inhabitants indignantly tore up the
contract. If Mr. Melbourne can
not make rain this spring he might
as well throw up his job , for it is
the general testimony of the people
in the west that rain never came
easier in all there previous experi
ence with the weather.
It is now authoritatively stated
that Attorney J. L. McPheely , who
has been prominently mentioned
in connection with the republican
nomination for congress in this
district , has for business reasons ,
decided to withdraw frru the race
and will not permit his name to be
presented to the McCook conven
tion. Colonel Gage , of Franklin ,
aud Prof. Andrews , the Hastings
orator , are now regarded as the
strongest candidates. Standard.
ACCORDING to the predictions of
the political medicine makers in
New York , Secretary Blaine was
going to Bar Harbor to remain un
til after the Minneapolis conven
tion , or he was going to resign his
place in the cabinet in twenty-four
hours. But he didn't. It is very
evident at this Avriting that Mr.
Blaine talked about theweather aud
kindred topics to his New York
interviewers and that he ignored
politics altogether. Otherwise
they would have had something to
