THE Times-Democrat should
spring another cod against the
Populist nominee for county treasurer -
urer , from "Poor Tax Eater" , go
into a hole , and pull the hole in
IT is of more importance that
the Republicans of McCook and ,
Red Willow county are united than
that Willow Grove precinct's delegation -
egation shall be a unit-at the beck
and nod of one man.
THE preposterous idea that the
Republican party of thiss county
must be dictated to and controlled
b by an oath-bound , secret society is
F simply intolerable. Every manly
man in the party ought to emphatically -
. phatically resent the insult.
THE patient Republican party
of Red Willow county has never
been more completely iii the control -
trol of "one man power" than it is
now-thanks to the McCook A. P.
A. and the score or two of alien
squatter chattels of this place controlled -
trolled by the order.
WHEN the Republican party so
far forgets its dignity and honor
and glorious history as to allow itself -
self to be bodily absorbed in a
manner so inglorious by a secret
society it openly and publicly invites -
vites and merits the defeat that
seem to await its nominees on next
"JUDGING from the amount of
squirming in the Populist camp ,
this paper has been hitting the
nail ou the head every time" , says
the Indiauola Reporter. Colonel
Bishop may be striking at Populist -
list heads ; but its the other fellows
that are squirming. He is hitting
i THE result ; this fall , is merely
one of the "loaves and fishes"-
not of politics. So the way is perfectly -
fectly clear for the Republican par-
tyto throw overboard the Jonah-
the A. P. A. 'that now threatens
to engulf the party. That order
and dictation once emphaticly rebuked -
buked the party has some clear
1 and successful sailing ahead. Let.
-us get in line to resume business
in.1896 as aRepublican party.
"IN these days of 'boodling' in
Polites" , saYe Colonel Bishop , "it
astonishes the Courier man to see
, this paper stand up for the straight
ticket , without the hope of fee or
reward" . Well , now , that really
is quite ingenuous in Colonel Bishop -
op ; when the concurrent opinion
of Republicans and Populists all
over the county is and has been
that the Colonel's grand stand play
against the Populists has been distinctly -
tinctly and exclusively in the hope
of reward. Vain hope.
THE Times-Democrat handles
the A. P. A. very gingerly , and
seeks to excuse the Republican
party for its dark lantern , Know-
Nothing methods by recalling the
secret features of the late lamented
Farmers' Alliance. TEE TRIBUNE
remembers , too , how that with one
accord the Republican papers
"roasted" the Alliance on this very
ground. But the. Alliance is not
to be mentioned with the A. P. A.
for secret political methods. Both
are wrong-Republicans no less
COLONEL BISHOP blandly in-
qnires of us if the "yokel" of the
Danbury News isn't somewhat of
a "skinner" himself ? No , Colonel ,
we violate no confidence in stating
that the "yokel" is not a "skin-
- ' - ner"he is .scarcely half that
much. If his liver had not strayed
into his brain pan , and he had a
moiety of cleverness , he might have
risen to the dignity of a very corn-
' mon and coarse blackguard of small
cunning and less accomplishment.
But nature has done the best she
could with the "stiff" : If it were
carefully scraped and disinfected ,
' it might pass muster as a casing
for some spoilt wiener-wuret. This
is positively the best we can defer
for the cadaver at this writing ,

THE fact that H. H. Berry was
not given a square deal in the
matter of securing the Republican
nomination for justice of the peace
of Willow Grove precinct has
aroused the sense of fair play
among the citizens of McCook regardless -
gardless of party affiliations , and
the additional sympathy thus
aroused will be a large and potent
item in his behalf next Tuesday.
The man who defeats the elder will
know that he has been in a race.
The elder does not want all the
offices. He does not desire to run
the whole town-boss .the entire
job himself. He simply seeks to
become justice of the peace of this
precincf. He is competent and
qualified. He is deserving and
the voters of this precinct should
see to it that he is elected. There
is no reason why any one citizen
should be allowed or encouraged
to "hog the whole thing" . To be
Lincoln Land Co. agent , mayor of
McCook , head push in the A. P. A.
and Republican party dictator
ought to satisfy the ambition of
one man , these hard times.
Ii ? George W. Norris fails to
carry Red Willow. county by a
nice comfortable majority , THE
TRIBUNE wants the responsibility
placed where it belongs-with the
A. P. A. ; which has sprung into
the Republican party so much ( he-
cord and bitterness as to make the
success of any portion o the ticket
a matterr of doubt. This unfortunate -
nate fact is another potent reason
why the Republican party in this
county must throw overboard this
secret organization or be engulfed
by the waves of righteous indigna-
THE divided and inharmonious
condition of the Republicans of
McCook especially is of course iin-
fortunate for the nominees who
have been led to think that the
A. P. A. contains all the Republican -
can voters of McCook and the west
end. But it will be well to remember -
member who is responsible for
this state of affairs. This statesmanlike -
man-like job is the handiwork of
the pushers and leaders of this secret -
cret organization. They alone are
responsible-not the Republican
THE Republican party must be
redeemed and wrested from the
leadership of the secret society of
this city who are now ruling the
party with an iron hand. Their
methods are so conspicuously irregular -
regular and unfair , that those now
mismanaging the party must be
turned down or the party will have
lost its usefulness. Resent dictation -
tion and intolerance by Your vote
IT puzzles the Courier to understand -
stand how the Times-Democrat
"verified" the nonsense it recently
published against the Populist
nominee for tresurer , purporting to
be written by a "Poor Tax Payer"
of Bog Elder , but really inspired
by a well-to-do "Tax Eater" of
Indianola. Of course it does.
The "verification" was never
attempted nor ever considered.
TEE Republican horse is so
seriously handicaped by poor leadership -
ership , bad management and the A.
P. A. dictation , that it will be little
less than a miracle if it is not distanced -
tanced in the race on nest Tues-
day. Perhaps a good , sound
thrashing would be the best thing
for the party to bring it to its
THE fact that many Republicans
have temporarily left their party
and joined the A. P. A. should not
discourage Republicans. We urge
the few Republicans left to stay by
their guns. Measles are short
IT will require a large colony ,
and one gathered from far and
near , to defeat the will of the indignant -
dignant and disgusted voters of
Red Willow county , this fall.
THE death of General Van Wyck
is generally regretted , regardless
of politics. He was a grand old
man in many respects dust the
THE Republican party is higher
than the expectation of any leader.
It should be greater than any
secret order. It must be if it

THE danger to the Republican
ticket , this fall , lies in the surplus
of A. P. As. and the deficit of Republicans -
publicans in the party.
SECRET society dictation in the
Republican party should be given
its death blow , this fall. Let the
G. 0. P. get in line to resume business -
iness at the old stand in 1896.
IT is truly pathetic to contemplate -
plate , but the frigid facts remain
that a number of promises were
made about convention time , which
will never be carried out. The
gang won't have the goods to de-
LET the Republican party of
Red Willow county , once for all ,
repudiate this secret order and its
dark lantern methods. So we can
resume business in 1896 as a Be-
publican party and wiu on the
THE A. P. A. is avidently favoring -
ing the "herd law. " At least they
are doing all they can to make the
grass grow in the streets of
McCook. . Under these circumstances -
stances , is the man who makes two
blades of grass grow where one
formerly thrived , a pure. and undefiled -
defiled patriot. Hardly.
. T. BREWER is a candidate for
county , commissioner-not for
heaven. He has the business
qualifications for the making of a
useful and energetic commissioner.
He might not handle a harp very
gracefully without a little more
probation. But he is competent
to discharge the duties of county
commissioner promptly and intel-
ligenblY and fairly.
REPUBLICANS , vote to protect
your schools yourself ; vote to worship -
ship God according to the dictates
of your own conscience ; vote for
the protection of your home by
yourself ; vote to redeem and save
the Republican party ; vote to
smash into smithereens the A.P.A.
and forever settle the question of
secret society dictation or interference -
ence with the Republican party.
ACCORDING to the head push of
the A.P.A. , the Nebraska supreme
court must be holding its breath
until it hears the result from Red
Willow county. What unspeakable -
ble nonsense with which to attempt
to whip people into line. If that
sword is to be eternally held over
the heads of people , every county
and city election , by the party
bosses , it were just as well that
the county seat were in gahenna ,
so far as the people are concerned.
THE expose of the A. P. A.
methods as given in the Omaha
Evening Bee of the 30th is one of
the most startling political coups
in the history of Omaha or of the
state. It is one of Rosewater's
masterpieces. And on Tuesday
A. P. A.-ism in Douglas county
will be powerfully jolted. The
same expose in a small way is possible -
sible in McCook , and the same
jolt will be administered to the
order in Red Willow county , nest
FOR H. H. Berry THE TRIBUNE
on its own motion bespeaks a
hearty support. The spirit of fair
play in this community ought to
assert itself so vigorously that his
majority for a justice of the peace
of this precinct will be a generous ,
one. His nomination was openly
and squarely and fairly obtained .
by petition , when an opportunity
to secure it in a primary was denied -
nied for the stated reason that he
supported men for nomination that
were opposed by the president of
council 100. He is competent
and fully deserves the office.
