Lincoln , Neb. , Oct. 24. At the be
ginning of the last week of the cam
paign the atniospheie of the state capi
tal Jias a decided tinge of republican
confidence in the outcome , and no re
publican c- > ! > necteil with the manage
ment oi hoanva s lias any leason to
change In. , estimate of a liberal re
publican majority for the entire ticket.
Populists are basing some hopes on the-
trip which their candidate will make
through the central part of the state
November 2 , but there is every reason
to believe that republican sentiment ip
so perfectly crystallized that it cannot
be shaken atauy point by Mr. Bryan's
There are indications that the mana
gers of the deniocratic-popnlistic cam
paign have little hope of carrying the
Btate for Brvan , and are preparing to
hedge and make a strong bid for sup
port for Holcomb during the last week
of the campaign. Already reports have
been received from a number of coun
ties stating that the popocrats and dein-
opops are offering to give McKiuley
votes in exchange for Holcomb votes ,
and while it ie not probable that
many republicans are disposed to make
the exenange , it is nevertheless not
amiss to caution them against such
trades. The slate is good for a major
ity for the entire ticket , national and
state , and it will be wise for every re
publican to vote his ticket straight in
stead Ox considering trading propesd-
So far as Governor Holcomb is con
cerned , he has been running a campaign
strictly for himself for a couylo of
mouths past , and has had campaigners
out working in his personal interest.
His leading card has been a misrepre
sentation of republican state officials
and a glorification of himself. His rep
resentations in legard to state educa
tional funds have been referred to in
a previous letter , wherein it was shown
that- the credit of the management aud
investment of the permanent school
fund has been entirely duo to the re
publican officials who comprise the
board , and of which the governor is
merely the presiding officer. So there
is nothing in that.
That Two Hundred Thousand Doll.irs.
Governor Holcomb and some of his
speakers have been veiy industrious in
telling the voters of the state how he
has saved two hundred thousand dollars
by his careful and economical adminis
tration of affairs. In the first place
there has been no such saving. The
appropriations of the last legislature
were pared down so that no such saving
could bo effected , the business of the
various departments aud state institu
tions already being on an economical
basis when Holcomb came into office.
He does not , in fact , have the disposi
tion of any state futids except those ap
propriated for the maintenance of his
own office. He has the appoiutmonb of
heads of most of the state institutions ,
but he has little to say as to how the
funds for these institutions shall
be expended. Supplies for the state
and all of the state institutions
are purchased by the board of purchase
and supplies , on competitive bids , and
contracts are awarded to the lowest bid
der. The conduct of the various insti
tutions is entirely in the hands of the
board of public lands and buildings. It
will be found upon the closest investi
gation that the interests of the state
have been carefully consulted by these
boards , and so far as Governor Hol-
comb's voice and vote have gone , he has
been equally considerate. There is no in
timation to the contrary. But when
the governor takes to himself the
credit for an impossible saving , and re
flects upon his brother officials in the
same connection , it is as well that the
facts should be stated and generally un
A Campaign of Misrepresentation.
During the past few weeks of the
campaign there is a still stronger ten
dency of the populist press and speak
ers to break over the barriers of truth
and make unfair attack upon some of
the republican candidates. To the
credit of republicans it can be said that
they have not made this sort of a cam
paign , and have not even shown
a disposition to retaliate , believing
that the truth will be found out before
election day and that justice will pre
vail at the outcome.
State Superintendent Corbett is one
of the officials who has been subjected to
attacks which have no foundation in
truth , reason or justice. If the
charges made against him by a
few personal enemies ever required
any refutation , it has been given posi
tively and publicly long ago over the
signatures of men and women of the
highest standing in the state. Among
these are the former superintendent or
the Omaha public schools ; Chancellor
Canfield , formerly of the Nebraska
state university , and Hon. C. H. Merrill
rill of the board of regents of the state
university. These have all shown
most positively that Mr. Corbett's course
has been above all reasonable censure ,
while his administration of his impor
tant office has called forth the highest
praise from every intelligent source.
The people of Nebraska , who appreciate
him for the gentleman that he is and
for the splendid work that he has given
to the office of state superintend
ent of public instruction , will do him
justice at the polls and the majority
that he will have will be a rebuke to
• lander and a complete vindication of
his course as a man and as an official.
Attorney General Churchill is an *
other official who has been attacked by
willful misrepresentations. This attack
is led by the officers of the Farmers'
Mutual Insurance company , which was
refused a certificate to do bnsiness by
the state anditor upon the opinion of
the attorney general. The company
brought suit in the supreme court , by
mandamus , to compel the auditor to is
sue a certificate , but the writ was re
fused by the court. This is the extent
of . ' , , "
Geu.Churchill'8hostility" to the mu
tual insurance law. He is not in position
to help or hinder these corporations , be
ing a mere interpreter of the law , sworn
to uphold it , aud in no Fense its ex
ecutor. His general course has been one
of friendliness to mutual insurance , and
he has not at any time played into the
hands of the old-Hue companies. As
sertions to the contrary are utterly aud
absolutely false , made with the inten
tion to deceive , aud for the purposeof
wreaking personal revenges upon a
faithful and competent official.
took Out For Elevcnth-Honr Koorbacks.
It ought not to bo necessary to cau
tion voters against the "eleventh-hour
roorback. " But it will be remembered
that th6 campaign just closing will bo
noted for the fakes aud forgeries that
have been put. out by the democratic
managers aud newspaper press , to bo
reprinted and reiterated aud circulated
long after their true character had beou
exposed. Hence it is not too much to
expect that some new canard will be
sprung during the last few days before
election. Naturally this would be the
last card of the desperate managers of a
The fight is already won for the re
publican state aud national ticket. It
only remains for republicans to be vigi
lant aud keep up an.aggressive canvass
until the close of election day , to make
the victory ono that will be memorable
for generations to como.
THAT BALLOT CONTROVERSY.
Secretary of Statn Piper's Decision * Are
Mistalntnl Ily the Supreme Court.
The facts in regard to the controversy
between the two wings of the demo
cratic parr.y in Nebraska have been gen
erally understood , and it is due to Sec
retary of Stare Piper that the public
should bo correctly informed. It started
in 18')4 ' ) when the "gold bug" democrats
bolted thd convention that nominated
Holcomb , the bolters nominating a state
ticket with P. D. Sturdevaut for gov
ernor. Secretary Piper refused to put
the names upon the ballot except by
petition. A petition with five hundred
name s was secured and the names were
placed upon the official ballot as"demo-
2rat3 by petition. " This ticket in the
slection of. 1894 polled more than oue
per cent of the vote of the state. This
gave the bolting wing of the democracy
standing as a party.
In 1803 the "gold bug" democrats
nominated T. J. Mahouey for supreme
judge. When his certificate of nomina
tion was filed three days remained in
which to file a protest against putting
his name on the official ballot. After |
five days had elapsed a protest was filed.
Secretary Pipar was thou estopped by
law from considering the protest , but
desiring to be fair he agreed to stipulate
a test case to the supreme court , whioh
decided that Mahouey could appear on
the ballot as a democrat. As a matter
of fact he had polled two votes to every
one polled by the "silver" democrat for
the same olhee.
This year the same "gold bug" organ
ization nominated a state ticket. The
"silver" democrats protested. Secretary
Piper decided that the "gold bugs" had
the right to appear on the ballot as demo
crats. The "silver" democrats appealed
to the supreme court , which not only
sustained Secretary Piper in this one
particular , but also as to every other
decision. So it will be seen that those
who attempted to make political capital
against the secretary of state started out
too early. Indeed , it is a great feather in
the cap of Secretary Piper , whose care
ful and law-abiding methods have been
of great value to the state in mauy in

spise contemptible campaign methods ,
especially when employed against an
efficient public officer.
A contemporary lately described a
certain court decision in Gage county
as reversing an important ruling of the
state superintendent on a point of I
school law. On investigation we find
that the ruling in question was sus
tained instead of reversed , and in no
case has a single decision of that officer
been overruled by the courts during the

ish charges against him have been
trumped up by a little clique of per
sonal enemies , and we regret that any
of the people's party papers should make
the political blunder of giving them
publicity. Thousands of populists who
believe in fair politics will rebuke such
methods with their votes. The people's

Henry R. Corbett's majority for state
superintendent will be a rebuke to
those who think Nebraska voters can be
fooled by spiteful slanders. He deserves
re-election upon his excellent adminis
tration , which has been one of the most
successful and progressive that office
has ever known. Nebraska State Dem

A few weeks ago the editor was taken with
a very severe cold that caused him to be in a
most miserable condition. It was undoubtedly
a bad case of la grippe and recognizing it as
dangerous he took immediate steps to bring
about a speedy cure. From the advertisement
of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy and the
many good recommendations included there
in , we concluded to make a first trial of the
medicine. To say that it was satisfactory in

acted , like magic and the result was a speedy
