It is not good Republican doc
trine or practice to turn down a
man for nomination because he is
honest and clean and able and elo
quent. W. E. Andrews cannot be
defeated for any other crime.
Congressman Bryan says that
the greatest danger which now
threatens our political life as a na
tion is the lack of interest mani
fested by the people in the political
destinities of the country.
The jewelers of Nebraska met in
Lincoln, last week, to the number
of over one hundred and organized
a state association with Bichard
O’Neill of Lincoln as president.

A local politician prescribes
Christianity as the most efficacious
remedy for the present disturbed
and critical condition of affairs in
this land of liberty. And the gen
tleman was not very wide of the
mark, either. At any rate we don’t
want so much politics of the so
called practical sort.
.The Bepublicans of the Fifth
district concede the fact that Prof.
Andrews will scarcely have any
opposition for the nomination for
congress. They say he is the ablest
man in the district to cope with
McKeighan. It probably means
' the same old fight over again.—
Grant Sentinel But with differ
ent results, adds the Beaver City
It is a suggestive fact that the
gentleman who said of President
Cleveland: “Think of him? Why,
sir, he reminds me of a Hindoo
idol sitting there with downcast
eyes and folded arms—contempla
ting his own abdomen and thinking
it is the centre of the universe!”
Six months later placed him in
nomination far a second term. His
initials were Daniel Dougherty.
The Golden Role, a Christian
Endeavor paper of Boston, offered
prizes recently to the best essays
on the political parties of today.
The essays were to be confined to
200 words and the first prize was
awarded to Henry R. Steele, of
Montclair, N. J., who in the fol
lowing clear and succinct manner
tells why he considers the republi
can party the best of all:
I favor the republican party,and
believe it to be the party of pro
gress, reform, and pure patriotic
principles. It saved the union,
freed and enfranchised the slave,
purified the channels of govern
ment, restored national credit,paid
a vast portion of our debt, found
ed the banking and financial sys ■
tem under which the country has
so marvellonsly prospered, rebuilt
our shattered industries, drove
France out of Mexico, developed
the west, inaugurated the home
stead system, provided for invalid
soldiers and sailors, started our
new navy, wiped out polygamy,
and killed the lottery. It is the
party of the intelligent, honest,in
dustrious classes. It is the true
advocate of civil service reform,
ballot reform and temperance. It
stands today squarely opposed to
the liquor and gambling interests,
and pledged to a vigorous foreign
policy, to the restoration of our
shipping interests, the protection
of home labor, the maintenance of
the purity of the ballot, and to the
honest, unpartisan, and efficient
administration of every department
of the government. It is the party
of the people. It ruled the nation
wisely for 30 years, and made it
prosperous at home, respected
abroad, and the recent “change”
and contrast are its ample justifi
The Tribune is not authorized
to speak for Mr. Andrews—nor to
fight his battles. But on our own
motion we always feel at libery to
resent such rot as this from last
week’s Indianola Courier. The
editor of the Courier has the right
to oppose Mr. Andrews’ renomina
tion, and to state his reasons, if he
has any, why that gentleman
should not be renominated. But,
upon whose authority and by what
measure of fairness does he pre
sume to utter such cuckoo rot as
this: “The Democrats and Inde
pendents are unnecessarily anxious
to see the Bepublicans nominate
Andrews to run against McKeigh
an for congress. Don’t worry, gen
tlemen, when the right time comes
the Bepublicans will name a man.
... If McKeighan was empowered
by the Republicans of this congres
sional district to name their candi
date to run against him for his seat
in congress, no doubt he would
suggest Hon. W. A. Andrews of
The Bland seigniorage bill has
passed the senate by a vote of 44
to 31. »Of the measure the Chica
go Inter Ocean says: “The truth
is that the passage of this bill is
the severest blow yet dealt to the
makeshifts resorted to by the sin
gle standard goldites to prevent
genuine bimetallism, as intended
by the act of 1878. Whether it
will actually accomplish that object
or not time only can tell. It is well
that the effort is to be made. No
international bimetallic movement
can succeed until Europe is con
vinced that this country is really
and permanently committed to the
double standard. Both political
parties have always professed it,
| but their sincerity has been sus
pected, and reasonably so, too.”
Colonel Bishop of the Indian
ola Independent states it frigidly
that he will be in politics,next fall,
so whomsoever will may take not
ice and to the woods. The colonel
is some pumpkins in politics, you
know, when he sheds his outer gar
ments. In fact we tremble with
gravest apprehension every time
we think about the coming conflict
between those two Goliaths of Bed
Willow county politics—Colonels
Bishop and Peterson.

The Citizens Ticket.
The following Citizens city ticket will
be certified up to the city clerk today:
For Mayor—W. T. Coleman.
For Clerk—G. L. Etter.
For Treasurer—E. I#. Lay cock.
For Police Judge—A. A. Hackman.
For Engineer—C. H. Meeker.
For Councilman, First Ward—U. J.
For Councilman, Second Ward—C. E.
For Members of Board of Education—
C. M. Noble and Z. L. Kay.
It may not be gainsaid but that the
Citizens ticket is made up of good tim
ber, and in any event the affairs of our
city and schools will be in good hands.
In addition we understand that C. J.
Ryan, who has made an excellent mem
ber of the school board, will be a candi
date for relection by petition.
A very happy wedding took place,
last evening, at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Benjamin Baker, a few miles east
of the city, their charming daughter
Etta C. and Mr. M. L. Nesbitt of Eustis,
Nebraska, being the contracting perties.
At prompt eight o’clock, to the music of
a weddikg march played by the bride’s
sister, Lizzie, the couple appeared before
Rev. A. W. Coffman, who performed the
ceremony uniting the destinies of these
estimable young people, in the presence
of relatives and friends of the family.
After the services a splendid marriage
sapper was served.
They were the recipients of many and
They will make their home in Eustis,
foi which place they will shortly depart.
The Tribune joins in the many warm
expressions of congratulation.
A Light Fine.
In district court, Wednesday, W. H.
Edwards pled guilty to the charge of
running a gambling house,and was fined
$50.00 and costs by Judge Welty. Which
was certainly a very light fine. Mr.
Edwards will likely recover all his valu
able apparatus, too. The costs of suit,
however, amounted to about $150; which
together with the fees of the attorneys in
the case will bring the expenses up to
quite a high notch, after all.
Last Friday was little Minnie Berry’s

Miss Furbush wishes to announce to
the ladies of McCook and vicinity, that
she has returned from her eastern trip,
after having purchased her spring stock
of millinery. She will at once begin to
prepare for her spring millinery opening,
date of which will be announced later.
It is gratifying .to The Tribune to
know that Mason Saunders, the old man
who was taken in by the New York city

McCook, but hails from Trenton, Hitch
